POSTAGE STAMP CURRENCY.
There has been much misapprehension and
more mistatement in regard to the operations
of the law declaring postage stamps curren
cy. Thousands of dollars of the ordinary
stamps have heen purchased by the pub
lic, and are now used as currency. It seemed
to be understood that the law related to
the stamps in use for letter postage, but the
announcement was suddenly made that such
was not the idea or condition of the law, and
that the Treasury Department would issue a
stamp peculiarly adapted for the purpose. All
this is again contradicted by despatches from
Washington, and we are now assured that the
Secretary of the Treasury is doubting as to the
policy of issuing the currency stamps from his
All these accounts will tend to increase the
public embarrassment on this subject, and
leave the business man In as great if not a
greater confusion than he was before it was
proposed to issue and use postage stamps as
currency. The Post Office Department has sold
stamps to the amount of half a million of dol
lars, within the past week, for currency pur
poses. If such of these as may become
soiled by use, are to be repudiated, the Depart
ment will be "making a good thing" at a bu
siness in the practice of which an individual
would be prosecuted, and if found guilty,
imprisoned. The use of the stamps must
affect their appearance, but this should not de
predate their value.
—We trust that the subject will be speedily
settled, and that the relief designed to be of
forded to our business men by the use of past•
age stamps, will be dispensed at once, or at
least definitely settled as to its operations.
ME HUGHES FAMILY
"frank, the Chairman," is the head of the
Hughes'family in Echuylkill county, and as
such is bound to cover up its faults, smother
its corruptions, and defend its peccadillo. At
this business he is an expert, having I ecome
proficient as one of the first criminal lawyers
in this country. But his first attempt in this
defence, in which he essays to varnish the fact
that he has certain relations in the rebel army,
has not been as successful as the pleas he has
made for some of his criminal clients before
the bar of Schuylkill county. He has ut
terly failed to make a defence, unless we
may regard as such the whining justification he
seeks for the treachery of the Hughes family,
because the families of certain loyal men in the
border states, are engaged in rebellion. We
might add that there was some temptation
for the sons of loyal men in the slave states,
but it proves the very essence of dough-fiacisra
for any northern man either to submit to the
pressure of rebellion, or, yielding to its force,
for such a man to take up arms in its defence.
The man who does so, proves that he has no
courage or love for his country, that he is
not loyal, that he is a traitor, and such Is the
condition of the Hughes family which "Frank
the Chairman," represents within and with
out the State of Pennsylvania.
A correspondent writing from Pottsville,
gives our readers a fair history of the Hughes
family. Who will doubt that the scions of
the Hughes' family now operating for treason
in the south, when they learn of the action of
heir kinsman, Frank, will hail it as the omen of
the strength of dough-faceism in Pennsylvania.
"Frank, the chairman," will send greeting to
his kinsmen in the south, and thus the imperial
dough-face of Pennsylvania, joining his voice
with that of his traitorrelations in Jeff's King
dom, will be able, in their opinion only, to
send up a hearty and cheering encourage
ment to all the dirty tribe of dough-faces and
race of traitors belonging to the Hughes family.
LET US STOP 001WILATING
Let us have done with clemency. Away
with the rose water policy. We must no lon
ger sup treason at a premium, throwing away
patriotic lives and protecting traitors. The
rebel Governor of Louisiana, in his last mes
sage, says of our army, "short MUlte be the Arilt
of those who stand ready to welcome them," while
we only swear rebels and let them go. Jeff.
Davie' late bulletin urges his rabble to raids
"beyond the Confederate boundaries," gloating
over the sack of northern cities, so long prom
ised by their highest officers. Desperately in
earnest, and utterly reckless are the rebel sol
diers. Will the ambition of Davis, hesitate at
the sacrifice of half a million of his own men?
Let the full force and energy of every Union
man be brought out. Let each one go to the
war if possible. If not, let him aid his neigh
bor who can. We must put down secession at
home, make short work with dough-faces---as
no man worthy of life will be a sympathizer—
and punish thoroughly all who aid treason.
The burglar is already in our house. We must
fire upon him at Ihe risk of bitting those who
exult in his success, though "opposed to coer
cion." It is vastly better to injure doubtful
f r iends than Union soldiers. Let the seces
sionists among us be made to feel that they are
answerable for a part of the hundred thousand
Union lives already sacrificed. Let preachers,
editors and all others who publish treason—in
public insidiously—in private almost openly—
be exposed and denounced. Our shattered,
bleeding armies and the crushed hearts at home
fully attest the cruelty of our , leniency to re
bels. Let us break*, law;'encourageno mob ;
but let every zman be -thornighly in - earnest,
and begitilitit the rebels at home. Jeff. Davis
talks of invading Penrisylvaida. He has no
doubt been insured a welcome, such a welcome
as the Patrisi has been giving to all who are
imbued withlreason. Loyal men cannot fail
much longer to notice Ind act on the defen
sive in this particular. The longer they post
pone this duty of defence, the stronger becomes
the dangers with which they are environed.
Delay is dangerous—and danger, these days,
~ I ' ~ - / i ~ i//
We have no doubts to cast on the integrity of
any of the loyal states, nor do we desire to ques
tion the ability of any state to pay the
bounty which has been offered to those enlisting
in their quota of troops. What we desire to
call attention to, is the fact that a considerable
number of Pennsylvanians, along the line divi
ding this from New York state, have entered the
service of New York, because that:state had of
fered a bounty, and Pennsylvania had neglected
to offer the smxte inducement to recruits. This
Is all wrong. New York has offered that bounty,
but she has made no provision for its payment,
and even now some.of the New York rural press
are beginning to complain that enlistment un
der the offer of such a bounty, is nothing wore
than, procuring men under false pretences. The
IVerb `York Ekentirig Pat, "alludin g to the subject,
One,of the most Important hindrances to re
crusting is the feat that bounties are offered
without any adequate provision for their pay
ment. While the offers at,fimt stimulated re
cruiting, we have the concurrent statement of a
number of officers to the effect that, except un
der peculiar circumstances, the "work of enlist
ment actually suffers in consequence. This result
is accounted for in this wise: The bounties, pre
mium, and advance payment, which, in the ag
gregate, amount to ninety dollars, certainly call
the attention of great numbers of persons who
need inducements to enlist; but the payments
are based on several conditions, all of which are
more or less remote, and consequently uncer
tain. The offer of a pecuniary inducement,
therefore. suggests the question, when the funds
will be forthcoming. Of course there can be no
just ground for doubts, but they undoubtedly
enter into the calculations of many men who
propose to enlist, and at least neutralize the
good effects of the bounties.
In contrast with this uncertainty in the pay
ment of the bounty so boastingly heralled over
the country as having been provided by the au
thorities of New York, and which is now ques
tioned and publicly denounced as a fraud by the
press of that state, we have the more honorable
action of the Governor of Pennsylvania. Gov.
Curtin made no display of such a bounty.—
All that was deemed necessaiy was an appeal to
the patriotism of the people. This has had its
effect, and there has been more money appropriated
by the various counties in Pennsylvania, than will be
required to pay the bounty to the quota of troops re
quired from this state. Added to this appropria
tion by the several counties, corporations of 1
different kinds are making the most munificent'
appropriations, among which the Pennsylvania
railroad leads off with fifty thousand dollars. And
still farther in addition, the people of the state
are pouring out their individual wealth with
most lavish munificence. These are facts which
the patriotic men of Pennsylvania must remem
ber, and not allow themselves to be seduced
into the ranks of regiments formed to fill up
the quotas of other states. Pennsylvania has
never yet deserted her volunteer soldiers. She
has a pride and a boast in such of her citizens,
as she has a glory in her own name and mighty
power. Let her sons, then, rally to the stan
dards of the Keystone State, and swell the
ranks of our own regiments, instead of giving
their valor and their deeds to bloat the pride of
our alniady over-vain neighbors.
EXCHANGE OF PRISONERS.
It is now definitely settled by an arrange
ment between Gen. Dix, acting for the 'United
States, and gen. Hill, acting for the rebels,
that a general exchange of prisoners shall im
mediately commence. The good that may fairly
be anticipated from this understanding, will
undoubtedly fall upon the national govern
ment. In the first place it will return a large
number of gallant and efficient men to the ser
vice, with their loyalty invigorated by the
harsh treatment they received while in the
hands of the rebels. Oar gallant boys, return
ing to their homes, will be able to refute the
claims of the dough-face sympathisers, that the
leaders in this rebellion are chivalrous, brave
and generous, while they will establish the real
facts by their own experience, that secession is
only another name for anarchy, tyrany and
brutality. The other effect will be produced in
the rebel states, by the return of the poor de
luded wretches, who have been witnesses of
the splendid - enterprises, boundless wealth and
invincible power of the free men of the loyal
states. Every rebel prisoner held in the north
has had his opinion changed in regard not only
to the government against which he was madly
fighting, but of the people whom he was
taught to despise. These rebel prisoners have
been. taught lessons which were denied to them
at home. They have received intelligence
which it was the practice of southern journ
alists and orators to suppress, so that by the
time they begin to mingle with their old com
rades in arms fighting liks beggar cause, their
experience will put to - blush many an old story
of northern • ignorance, incapacity, lack of
courage and personal brutality so long circu
lated and believed by the people of the south.
—For these reasons, and for the still higher
principle of humanity which had much to do
in the control of the action of the federal gov
ernment, in this movement, we heartily and
cordially approve of the exchange of prisoners
Tai Noun Axizaceis, referring to the ap
pointment of Gen. Halleck as commander-in
chief of the federal land forces, says that it will
be observed that this order is dated immedi
ately upon the return of President Lincoln to
Washington from his visit to the army on the
Times aver, which must have satisfied him
that our military affairs needed reorganization.
General Halleck is an able mid thoroughly sof-

entific soldier. We trust his conduct of the
war may prove as successful at Washington as
it did at St. Louis. He will have under him
the whole army, to direct as he may see proper,
and it is now time that, if he is to be held re
sponsible for the conduct of the war, he should
not be interfered with in his dispositions. His
course at the tied has shown that he may be
trusted implicitly ; that he is no popularit:
monger, that he has more intellectual avec*
than any of our generals, and that he wastes

Battle on Garret Davis' Farm.
THF:DEFBAT OF 11011GAN . 11 GIIIIIILLAS IN ICANTOOKY
The Louisville Democrat giVes particulars of
the defeat 'of Morgan, the guerilla chief, on the
19th of July :
"At 2 o'clock yesterday morning General
Green Clay Smith left Lexington with 1,000
cavalry and two pieces of light artillery for
Paris. Between 7 and 8 o'clock be found Mor
gan's forces encamped on Garret Davis' farm,
in the vicinity ofParis fell upon them sud
denly, and, after a pre tty severe fight, Morgan
was put to flight, after losing a large number
killed-and fifteen captured. Smith's losses are
not stated, but are said to be light.
" Morgan took the road to Winchester, and
Colonel Metcalfe, with 600 cavalry, jt,ined Gen
eral Smith. The retr-ating column was hotly
pursued by the combined forces—the retreat
being turned into a rout.
0081. OP THE RAID
" Morgan's raid will cost the Union men of
the State about three thousand head of good
horses, It will cost the Kentucky secessionists
their liberty. The reins will be drawe'tighter.
They will be made to feel that there is a poeir
the land, and' that it can crush arid punish.
There is no doubt—all such has been sleazed
away—that the citizens of Kentucky—till:l - rebel
sympathizers—have aided and influenced this
raid. These guerillas were told that there
would be an uprising of the people.
" When he entered V-ersailles the principal
secesh of the town went to him and begged
him fpr God's sake to leave the State as rapid
ly as possiblo—that his coming at this time
-would utterly ruin their cause at the August
election, if it had not already done so. Turn
ing sharply upon them, he replied :
"Gentlemen, 1 came into the State on your
invitation, having received not less than two
thousand letters from various parts of the
State—more from Anderson county than any
where else. You promised me that I should
have all the help I needed—that the flower of
the State would join me. I have come, and
now you beg me to go sway again. You send
me a miserable few recruits on foot, and to
mount them I must steal the horses. lam
here at your invitation, and will mount all the
men you send me, notwithstanding the decep
tion you have practised towards me.'
"The 'same, in substance, was repeated by
him at Lawrenceburg, Anderson county, prov
ing how deeply he feels the terrible disappoint
ing. And now that his forces have been de
feated, and will be cut to pieces before they can
get out of the titate—if any are left to reach
the borders—we don't believe John feels in
the best possible - humor with himself or his
••.,v• L g q ,m, f , f
The energy of the Kentuckians does not ap
pear to have been sufficient to check the guer
illas without help. But they seem. to resent
the raid of Morgan.
" The intolligent men of Kentucky are fired
at the insult. The idea of a horse-thieving
and plundering gang of scoundrels marching
through their Empire State with impunity is
something they cannot tolerate - with patience.
Even the qtuutillecessionists openly disapprove
of this raid, and have offered their services in
defence of their cities and homes against such

well understood. No patriot will pause now
to investigate its causes. We must look to the
future. Everything that is dear to us is at

I call on the inhabitants or the counties, cities,
boroughs and townships throughout our bor
ders to meet and take active measures for the
immediate furnishing of the quota of the State.
Let those who carinot go themselves contrib
ute to provide bounties, equal, at least, to those
offered by adjoining States.
The Constitution prohibits me from drawing
money from the Treasury without authority of
law, and I will not cast a doubt on the patriot
ism of our citizens by assuming the necessity of
.calling the Legislature at this time.
This is no time to wait for Legislative action
and the negotiation of loans. Delay might be
fatal. To put down this rebellion is the busi
ness of every man in Pennsylvania ; and her
citizens will show on this occasion that they do
not wait for the slow process of legislation, and
do not desire to throw on the Treasury of the
Commonwealth a burden which they are indi
vidually ready to bear themselves.
The conduct of our men already in the field
has shed immortal lustre on Pennsylvania. Let
their brethren fly to arms to support them, and
make victory speedy as well as certain.
I designate below the number of companies
which are expected from the several counties
in the State, trusting the support of her honor
in this crisis, (as it may be safely trusted,) to
the loyalty, fidelity and valor of her freemen.
Whilst the quota of the several counties is
fixed equitably so as to fill the requisition for
twenty-one regiments, let not the loyal peo
ple of any county limit their exertions to the
enlistment of the companies named.
Our hE roic sons of Pennsylvania have moist
ened every battle field with their blood; thou
sands have bravely died defending the unity of
the Republic and the sanctity of our flag, and
other thousands have fallen sick and wounded,
and their places filled.

ernment, of order and of our common nation
ante ! one earnest struggle and peace will
again dawn upon us as a happy, prosperous
and united people.
Given under my hand and the great seal of
