Monday Afternoon, July 21, 1862.
The Patriot and Union having for the last'two
weeks made several personal, false and mali
cious allegations against the Postmaster of this
city, and after having been furnished with un
disputed testimony that the charges made
against him were utterly false and groundless,
and demanding that the same should be pub
lished, which testimony they have refused to
publish, he has therefore availed himself of the
only means left open, and thst is an appeal to
an honest and unbiassed jury of his country.
Several nits have therefore been instituted
against 0. Barrett and Thomas 0. MacDowell,
as publishers and proprietors of the Patriot and
Union, and U. T. Jones as writer of the same.
These gentlemen will therefore have a full op
portunity of proving one and all of their sev
eral allegations made against him.
In order to show our readers, that the only
charge made against him is fully contradicted,
we print the following letter, a copy of which
was sent to the Patriot, with a demand that
the same should be published. The letter is as
follows :
BLOOMPIELD t July 16, 1862
There was a package of money sent by ex
press from Key West by Capt. Woodruff to
Geo. Spahr, Esq., Mr. Spahr having left home
before the money arrived, requested me to receive
and to distribute it. The money was put up, each
persons in a sealed envelope, and addressed to
the person to whom it was to go, the amount
marked in figures on the outside. There was
two letters for Harrisburg, one for Mrs. Mary
Ann Tag, marked $4O DO, one for Mrs. Marga
ret Umberger marked $l6 00. They were seal
ed and addressed pronerl." --11 -....kburf. and
a pos t age e t, oor each. Mr. D. J. - Meer- cr.-
our place, wee going to Harrisburg and offered
to deliver them, but when he returned he said
he had not time to deliver them, and he took
them to the Post Office at Harrisburg, handed
them to the person attending the office, and
told him what they were ; that they were sol
diers' letters, and said to contain money. The
man in the office took them and said, "all
right." These were the only letters for any
person at Harrisburg in the package. Who
they were from, I have no means of knowing.
I have a list of all the letters received that
were in the package expressed by Capt. Wood
ruff. Any further information that may be
necessary, I will cheerfully give so far as I can.
Have these two letters been delivered to Mrs.
Tagg and Mrs. Umberger
Respectfully yours, &c.
Mr. Rice deposited these two letters in the
Post Office on Tuesday, and they were delivered
on the very same day by the carrier. We for
bear, however, to make further comment on
the subject, as the case will undergo a fair
and impartial investigation before an unbias
sed jury of this county.
If these charges had been of a political char
acter, we should have noticed them as hereto
fore, through the columns of our journal. Hav
ing been engaged as polithal editor and pro
prietor of several newspapers since the year
1887, a period of twenty-six years; we have
hurled many a hard blow against our political
adversaries and received as many in return of
which we do not complain. But when parties
make charges repeatedly against our pri
vate character and official conduct as an officer
of the United States government, we deem it
not only just and proper to our family and the
community in which we have resided for
twenty-six years past, to vindicate our own
personal character, but also vindicate that of
the government which we have sworn to serve
faithfully. Let a jury of our countrymel decide
the question and we shall rest satisfied.
The New York Tribune, of Saturday, publishes
what purports to be an abstract of certain por
tions of Col. Forney's speech, delivered in this
city on the 17th inst., which places the author
and the President in a wrong position before
the country. The Tribune has the following as
the language used in that speech:
"He announced that President Lincoln had
told him, before leaving Washington, that
henceforth his policy should be as stringent as the 'Ma
enthusiastic could desire. [Loud Applause.] That
hereafter there will be no restriction in the employment
of ail men to put down this Rebellion. [Long and
loud applause.] No more doubting about the
confiscation of Rebel property. [Applause.]—
No longer need the Northern people be fright
ened with the cry of Negro Equality and
Emancipation." [Applause.]
As the speeeh was delivered, and as it was
reported for, and published in the Tstectwerw
of Saturday last, neither the language attri
buted to Col. Forney by the Tribune, nor the
impression created by that lane/nage, was need
by the speaker or sought in any manner to be
fixed in the mind of the Convention. Col. For
ney did not say that he had lately bad an in
terview with the President relating to any
subject, and least of all did he say that the
President had confided to him the policy he in
tended to punme in the future to crush the
war. Here is whit he did declare on this sub
ject, and this is the only allusion to the Presi
dent in the entire speech:
But now, that experience has shown that no modera
tion can reach the authors of this great crime,
President will undoubtedly pro fi t by the lesson. And
/am sure that the voice that goes up from this Con
vention to day, Will invigorate and inspire him in the
vigorous policy which is about to be inaugurated ; a
policy which Heel sure wilt be as stringent and as de
termined as the most exacting and enthusiastic of us
could desire. Backed by the people, and empowered
by law, there will hereafter be no hesitation sn the
ny.* o f an mom Writ down the rebel/ion.
Nothing so alarms the organ of Jeff. Da
vis in this city, as a proposition or a plan to
Apply a vigorous policy in conducting this war
for the Union. It groans with holy horror at
the suggestion which urges the government to
use any means within its power to put down
rebellion, and would rather any time see a re
giment or a brigade of gallant Pennsylvanians
cut to pieces, than acknowledge the neces
sity of arming negroes to cut the throats
and exterminates the race of Southern
traitors. White men are not of the account
of slaves. Northern mechanics and laborers
have not invested in their flesh the money of
any of the political allies of dough•feceism, anti
therefore such as these can be slaughtered
without affecting the interests or the political
prospects of the party to which the Patriot sings
its praises. But if we use the slave, and risk
him in battle, we peril his political influence
and compel his master to risk his investment in
the war for the Union. This is a fair inference
after reading the article which Jeff. Davis!
organ prints this morning on the subject of a
more vigorous policy.
In the course of that article, the Davis organ
declares that
The way to encourage the volunteering of
white freemen is to cultivate unanimity of sen
timent among the northern people—to lay
aside party asperity, Sm.
In the same paragraph the most violent at
tack is made upon loyal Republicans and honest
Democrats who are sustaining the national ad
ministration, and this is what secesh means by
laying "aside party asperity ;" and in the lan
guage, we quote, the Jeff. Davis' organ talks
about "cultivating unanimity" as the way to
encourage enlistment. It must mean a unani
mous sentiment in favor of the slave-holders'
confederacy, and volunteering for the confed.
orate . army, because such has been its effort
for a year past. Bat the height of impudence
is reached in the following question which the
Davis organ propounds to the members of the
late People's Union State Convention :
"Why did not these leaders of party factions
and cormorants of public plunder resolve to
become leaders of regiments and battalions,
and to take the field without delay against the
rebel enemy 1"
Barrett and ltfacDowell talking about factions
and cormorants for office, when the very flesh
on their bones and the life in their souls was
placed there by the liberality of the men they
now assail, and is due to the broken down fac
tion which they now seek to revive. So far as
taking the field is concerned, perhaps the
members of the convention are fearful of an
attack of that inflamatory rheumatism or
, bronin diarrhcea which interfered with the
valor — or - Ante tkie
Davis organ.
—But, badinage aside, the public have had
sufficient evidence to convince them of this
fact, that the party of which the Patriot is the
organ, has no other political object in view
than that of giving aid and comfort to the
enemies of the National Government. The
leaders of that party now seek a triumph that
they may thus give assurance of their ability
to render this aid to Southern traitors, and thus
also encourage rebellion to continue its strug
gles against the government. Thereforejevery
vote cast for Barr and &looker, the dough-face
candidates for Auditor and Surveyor General,
may and will be counted equal to a bullet fired
for the success of the traitor government. The
article in the Patriot this morning proves this
fact, and thus out of its mouth do we convict
the Davis organ.
We suggested in Saturday's issue of the
TFLEGRAPH, the necessity of a bounty being of
fered for enlistments, so that the burden and
expense of the war would be equal among
all classes. While making this suggestion, we
also urged that this bounty should be offered
without waiting for the action of the Legisla
ture, but that the Legislature be at once con
vened to give validity and force to any move
ment which the Governor may immediately
innugurate, looking to the military organize
tion and the sum to be offered by a system
of bounties. Some of our cotemporaries as
sert that the Governor should assume this
responsibility at once, and offer this bounty
without the action of the Legislature. We
agree in this conviction, and yet we are
also convinced of the political and constitu
tional necessities of convening the Legislature,
in order that such action on the part of the
Governor may receive the high sanction and
endorsement of our law makers and custodians
of the public funds. •
The Piitaburg Evening Chronicle thus alludes to
the same subject :
Now it seems to us, that if Governor Curtin
had the endorsement of the people, as express
ed through county mass meetings, he might
avoid the very great expense and delay of con
vening the Legislature.e.t this untimely season,
and himself take the responsibility of offering
a bounty of dollars to each volunteer, trust
ing to the patriotism of the next legislature
for the proper authentication and legalization
of his act. He could then immediately provide
a fund for the purpose, and issue orders to the
different military'subordinates as to the mode
in which it is to be made available. Suppose
an average bounty of $5O were offered to two
classes of recruits, the whole expense would be
only $2,500,000. Fellow citizens, the capture
of Richmond ; the termination of the war ;
the avoidance of a dissolution of the Union and
a foreign war, and the perpetual prevention of
having Pennsylvania bordering a foreign gov
ernment, with its hostile line of custom houses
and tariffs, would be worth to this State alone
more than . a hundred millions.
But the chief merit of this course is that the
burthen of raising additional volunteers rests
equally upon all, and not upon this or that coun
ty, or upon this or that body of citizens who
may be more patriotic and liberal, but no more
able or interested than their neighbors, in send
ing reinforcements to our sorely pressed armies
now in the field. It would altogether obviate
too, the objection to local bounties, mentioned
at the outset of this article. Recruits having
no more inducements to enlist in one place than
in another part of the State, would join their
own home regiments, containing friends and
relatives of their own neighborhood, and offi
cered by men whom they know and in whom
they have confidence. To the liberal and pat-
riotic in each county, there would atilt be left
most ample opportunity for raising and spend
ing money, to put in rapid working order the
machinery of recruiting, in inilding public

diarrhcea , must have been at work on the body
or bowels of the valient Soldier who presides
over the columns of Jeff Davis' organ, else de
cent men and a loyal cause would have been
spared the outrage inflicted upon the com
munity this morning. It is customary and
notorious for the cowards and hirelings who
control the secesh organ and cater to traitors
through its columns, to make good their De
mocracy by abusing John W. Forney or ap
plauding slave-holding traitors and sympathiz
ing dough-faces. They have literally emptied
their heads, this morning, of all that it was
possible for professed falsifiers to conceive or
concoct. The mere personal abuse of John W.
Forney by such men as Barrettand blacDowell
amounts to no more than the exhibition of their
own jealousy and hatred. He Is above and be
yond their reach. He moves where they could
never be recognized. Hehas associates where
they would be spurned, and this fact, not his
independent renunciations 'of dough-face loco
focoism, has for years excited the envy of Bar
rett and MacDowell, John W. Forney might
be all that is mean, low and cowardly, and
yet he would be the superior of the controllers
of the Patriot ; and the day will come when
some of those will again crawl at his feet, im
portunate for favors and cringing for his recog

The Rebel Attrooities at Manasses

The following is an extract from a letter
found in the post office at Jacksonville, N. C.,
upon the occupation of that place by the U. S.
forces. It establishes beyond all doubt the
truth of the statement heretofore made as
to the atrocities committed by the rebels on
the dead bodies of our soldiers.
Dec. 2d, 1861.
My Dear have seen more since I haVe
been here than I ever expect to see in my life.
I went on the battle field one day where the
great battle was fought, and I I saw more than
I ever expected to see or ever want
to see again. I saw soldiers from Georgia
grabble up Yankees that had been burned and
saw them pull off their heads and snatch the
meat, and pare off their heads and took the
scull bones with them to send home for their
folks to see, and there was a great many dead
bodies of horses laying over the field, which
caused a terrible scent.
