PEOPLE'S UNION STATE TICKET.
THOMAS E. COCHRAN,
of York County
WILLIAM S. ROBB;
of Luzern County
Tuesday Afternoon, August 19,1862.
COL. PETER B. ALLABACH.
The One Hundred and Thirty-first Regiment,
compoked of companies recruited in Union,
Northumberland, Mifflin, Snyder and Lycom
ing counties, will be commanded by Col. Peter
H. Allabach, and leaves Camp Curtin to-day.
It is not necessary for us to refer specially to
the Colonel of this regiment, nor to describe the
material of which the regiment itself is com
posed. In selecting Col. Allabach, Gov. Curtin
was controlled, as he g is in the selection of every
Colonel, by a purpose to procure for our volun
teer force, the very best and most available
military ability, as the object is secure the
discipline and effectiveness of our quota of the
present requisition, as speedily as practicable.
Col. Allabach is a soldier in every sense of
the word. He has had experience where none
but martial merit is recognized, aid where men
are tried by the sternest discipline. In the regu
lar army, though not reaching the grade of com
mission, he nevertheless had the satisfaction of
winning the confidence and approval of thew
in command. On the bloodiest of the battle
fields of Mexico, and throughout that war, he
served with great devotion. In the war which
is now being waged for the Union, he is bound
to win a broader fame and a higher distinction,
because he is where his ability and his merits
will have ample room for action and recogni
tion. He will not fail to reflect credit on the
Governor who commissioned him and the cause
for which he is to battle.
Tax BREWEINRIDGERB must feel a crushing
sensation of that kind of bitter remorse which
is calculated to consume a man, when they
read the dispatches of the traitor Breckinridge,
describing his part of the affair at Baton Rouge
and the suffering which he inflicted on the loyal
soldiers who defended that post. Of course we
do not mean those who were induced to sup
port this wretch by the misrepresentations of
leading doughface Democrats. We mean these
leaders themselves. We mean such men as
Frank Hughes. Such men as those who now
bold the organization of the Democratic party,
and who like Frank Hughes and James Ruch- '
anan, are straining every effort to use that or
ganization for the aid of the rebel cause. Thus
while Breckinridge issues his dispatches, gloat
ing over the loyal blood he and his followers
have shed, Frank Hughes is printing his ad
dresses, laying the blame of this unholy war
against the Union, at the doors of the white
laboring masses of the loyal states. There is
something melancholly and humiliating in this
coincidence. It shows, however they may at
tempt to disguise the fact, that the rebels of
the south and the dough-faces of the north are
toting is concert. The one with fire and sword
assail the Union, while the other with false
hood and slander denounce Union men. Both
must be humiliated and crushed out before that
Union can be saved.
Since Breckenridge has lost an arm, the
question becomes pertinent as to whether his
friends in the loyal states lose an equal amount
of influence or fury in aiding rebellion ? Cer
tain it is, that John C. Breckenridge has been
winged—and that with one arm, if he is not
killed in battle or shot down as a fugitive, he
is destined some day to be hung as a common
Benzes MAGOFFIO REBIGNS.—The Loco Foco
Governor of Kentucky, Beriah Mageffin, whose
Hebrew preenomen signifies evil, has committed
a desperate act of patriotism. He has resigned
the Gubernatorial office for the good of Ken
tucky and of the Union. We do not mean to
say, that a desire to do good has caused him to
do what he has done, but that the act is in it
self meritorious without regard to his inten
tions. It is so rare a thing to see a Loco Foco
resign an office, that the act of Beriah stands
out in bold relief, and challenges the admira
tion of all beholders. It is to be hoped that he
may repent of all his sins, and that he may
never again be led into the temptations of offi
cial position. The last act of official life, that
of resigning, is more to be praised than all the
rest, and if dough-faces everywhere will follow
his prudent example they will do their country
a service of incalculable value.
Tas EiEOUTIVI COMMITDza of the Democratic
League of New York city have written a letter
to Gen. Hunter, thanking him for the stand on
the negro question which he has taken In his
letter to the Rev. Dr. Tyng. They think the
destruction of slavery necessary before the war
can be ended, though they fear that before the
loyal community can become united in that
belief much more blood must be shed.
There is no doubt that the League in New
York anticipate the shedding of " much more
blood" from the conduct of the League in
Pennsylvania, where it seems to be the highest
purpose of the State Central Committee, of
which Frank Hughes is chairman, to excite
mob law, induce incendiarism and give aid and
CeinfOrt to traitors. Such is modern Demo
Whenever a sympathiser desires to give
titular aid to his rebel coadjutors, he brawls
lustily ageinst arming the negroes of the south,
or, indeed, using them in any capacity in which
they may be able to render assistance in crush
ing the rebellion. On this subject there is
much honest difference of opinion, but those
who candidly object to the proposition to arm
the negroes of the south, nevertheless are wil
ling that they should he used in some capacity,
that of digging ditches, the menial work of
the camp, or the toiling duties of a siege. On
the other hand, those who clamor against the
arming of the negroes, and become so boister
ous in their claim that this is a "white man's
war," insist that the national government
shall do without the aid of the negro, simply
because they know that the moment the negro
is made an auxiliary in the war to put down ,
traitors, that instant not only the rebellion for
slavery, but slavery itself will be put on a ter
rible defensive. It would leave the rebel lead
ers no other alternative but submission or
complete and absolute extermination. It would
make the material of the rebellion the means
of .its suppression ; and as a relief to our sol
diers, it would afford them the amplest oppor
tunities for that perfection in the art of war,
of which their traitor opponents boast so large
The arming of the negro was one of the great
means used by the immortal Jackson, who deem
ed the service of the colored race of sufficient im
portance to solicit their aid during the last war
with Great Britain. If they were available in
repelling the invasion of a, foreign foe, why
should they not be equally serviceable in re
sisting the insurrection of a domestic enemy?
When the dough-faces who clamor so passion
ately on this subject, answer this question,
perhaps they can also be induced to give us an
opinion with regard to the following proclama
tion? We ask, at least, the Democracy who
claim Jackson as their patron political saint, to
publish the following proclamation :
GEN. JACKSON'S PROCLAMATION
HEADQUARTERS SEVENTH MILITARY DISTRICT, }
Momm, September 21, 1814.
lb the Free Colored Inhabitants of Louisiana:
Through a mistaken policy, you have been
heretofore deprived of a participation in the
glorious struggle for national rights in which
our country is engaged. This no longer shall
• As sons of freedom, you are now called upon
to defend our most inestimable blessing. As
Americans, your country looks with confidence
to her adopted children for a valorous support,
as a faithful return for the advantages enjoyed
under her mild and equitable government.
As fathers, husbands and brothers, you are
summoned to rally around the standard of the
eagle to defend all which is dear in existence.
Your country, although calling for your ex
ertions, does not wish you to engage in her
case without remunerating you for the services
rendered. Your intelligent minds are not to
be led away by false representations. Your
love of honor would cause you to despise the
man who should attempt to deceive you. With
the sincerity of a soldier and the language of
truth I address yon.
To every noble-hearted freeman of color vol
unteering to serve durin g the present contest
with Great Britain, and no Toper, there will
be paid the tame bounty, in money and lands,
now received by the white soldiers of the United
States, viz : $124 in money, and 160 acres of
land. The non-commissioned officers and pri
vates shall also be entitled to the same month
ly pay, daily rations and clothes, furnished to
any American soldier.
On enrolling yourselves in companies, the
Major General will select officers for your gov
ernment froth your white fellow-citizens. Your
non-commissioned officers will be appointed
from among yourselves.
Due regard will be paid to the feelings o
freemen and soldiers. You will not, by being
associated with white mei:l'in the same corps,
be exposed to improper comparison or unjust
sarcasm. As a distinct, independent battalion
or regiment, pursuing the path of glory, you
will, undivided, receive the applause and grati
tude of your countrymen.
To assure you of the sincerity of my inten
tions, and my anxiety to engage your invaln
able services to our country, I have communi
cated my wishes to the Governor of Louisiana,
who is fully Informed as to the manner of en
rollments, and will give every necessary infor
mation on, the subject of this address.
Major General Commanding.
December 18, 1814, Geri. Jackson issued, in
the French language, the following address to
the colored members of his army :
" SOLDX6IIB l When, on the banks of the Mo
bile, I called you to take up arms, Inviting you
to partake the perils and glory of your white
fellow-citizens, I expected much from you,; for
I was not ignorant that you possessed qualities
most formidable to an invading enemy. I
knew with what fortitude you could endure
hunger and thirst, and all the fatigues of a
campaign. 1 hnew well how you loved your native
country, and that you, as well as ourselves, had
to defend what man holds most dear—his pa
rents, wife, children and property. You have
done snore gran I eapected. In addition to the
previous qualities I before knew you to possess,
I found among you a noble enthusiasm, whioh
leads to the performance of great things.
" Soldiers ! The President of the United
Stated shall hear how praiseworthy was your
conduct in the hour of danger, and the represen
tatives of the American people will give you
the praise your-exploits entitle you to. Your
Genelki anticipates them in applauding your .
" The enemy approaches ; his vessels cover
our lakes: our brave citizens are united, and
all contention has ceased among them. Their
only dispute is, who shall win the prize of val
or, or who the most glory, its noblest reward.
" By order, THOMAS BUTLSR,
After such an opinion, from a soldier such as
Gen. Jackson was esteemed to be, we have
nothing more to write or urge on the subject
of arming the negro.

SECESSION POLITICS IN ILLINOIS.
The Democrats of Illinois seem to be the,
most shameless seceesionits outside of the rebel
confederacy. In some places they actually
parade the rebel flag, and their yam Is are
foremost in denouncing the vigorous praw n tion of the war. In Jo. Davie county the fol
lowing circular has been issued
" The progress of the rebellion. and its insti
gator and abettor, abolitionism, have made and
are making towards the destruction - et the con

all civil liberty, imperatively demands the as

back the enemies of free government, and to
maintain the "constitution ae it is, and restore
the government as it was." To effect thiaob.

officer. A satisfactory examination as to char

MAIM urinal nurses are wanted in the miP

have been performing such duties. They re

given those who have served in such capacities
in civil hospitals.

der W. D. Porter, that yesterday morning at
two o'clock, the enemy's forces -under Gen:
Breckinridge, attacked Gen. Williams, drove
in his pickets, etc. Gen. Williams having had
ample warning, all was prepared for him.
The fight -was continued with great energy
on both sides until ten o'clock, a. m. -by which
time the enemy had been • driven back r two or
three miles. But unfortunately the gallant
General Williams; while cheering on his men,
received a minie ball through the heart.
Gen. Williams bad informed Lieutenant Com
manding Rawson, the evening before, of the
Plans and requested him not to fires gun until
he notified him ' 'and when be did so Our gun
boats Kineo and 'Katandin opened with fine
effect, throwing their shells directly in the
midst of the enemy producing great dismay
and confusion among them. -
Lieut. Ransom had an officer on -the 'State
House, which overlooked the adjacent country,
and could direct the fire' of every shell. As
soon as the enemy was repulsed, Commander
Porter went up the stream after-the ram Ar
kansas, which was lying about five miles above,
:apparently afraid to take her share in the con
flict, according to the preconcerted plan.
As he came within gunshot he opened on
her and probably soon- disabled some of ma
chinery or steering apparatus, for she became
unmanageable, continuing, however, to fire
her guns at the Essex. Commander 'Porter
-says he took advantage -of her presenting a
weak front towards him, and loaded a gun with
incendiary shells ; after his first -discharge. of
this projectile a gush of fire came out' of her
side, and from that moment it was discovered
that she was on fire,
which he continued his
exertions to prevent from being . extinguished. 1
They backed her ashore and made a line fast 1
which soon burnt and she swung off into the '
river, where she continued to burn.. until•she
