Thursday Afternoon, September 26,1862.
THE SPIRIT OF THE TORY ORGAN.
Again, this morning, does Frank Hughes oc
cupy a column in the tory-organ, advocating:
the repudiation of the soldier's pay, and re
sistance to the tax bill.
The low and cowardly meanness of the at
tempt to mislead the people, from the payment
of an honest debt, is a peculiarity with the
proprietors of the tory-organ, in all their deal
logs, from pounds to shillings, and from shil•
'lnge down to pence. Hence the advocacy of
repudiation—hence the recommendation that
the people should resist the payment of the
It appeals to the people to elect a majority
of Breckinridgers to the Legislature and to
Congress, that the Lax bill may at once be re
pealed—that the administration may be left
without esources—and that thus the rebel
Jeff Davis, the natural ally of the tory organ,
may succeed. Deprive this government of its
support, and you of course secure its downfall
—secure the success of the rebels—and thus
secure, too, the oppression and the enslavement
of every white laboring man in the loyal states.
This is the spirit, and . the policy of the tory
organ; this morning.
What think you, men or Pcmasylcaala, of a
journal that thus openly recom , ends the re
pudiation not only of a tax to support your
government, now struggling with a rebellion
which was originated by the faction to which
this tory organ has always adhered, but that also
boldly recommends the repudiation of that
government itself. It is the last dodge of the
dough-faces. They can no longer remain neu
tral in the face of the vigorous policy adopted
by the President to crush rebellion. They
can no longer claim loyalty to the Govern
went, while secretly opposing all its mea
sures. The alternative of the proclamation has
developed treason at the north and the south,
and forced all men into an open position of
either devotion to the Government or adhe
rence to the rebels. It has succeeded in this
locality. It has unmasked the treachery of
the toty organ—and the people may now re
gard that sheet as it really is, the exponent of
treason and the advocate of repudiation in the
great state of Pennsylvania.
—The bag will again be passed around
among the faithful, for a collection to pay for
the insertion of the batch of falsehoods, under
the head of "Keep it Before the People," in
the tory organ of this morning,
ANOTHER IMPORTANT PROCLAMATION.
, President Lincoln has just haled another
very important proclamation, which we publish
this afternoon. Like that which startled the
country a few days ago, its issuance was a fore
gone conclusion. The former proclamation
pertained exclusively to slavery and the slaves.
This deals with traitors in the loyal states. It
hurls against them, one and all, the sternest
fiat of justice—the declaration of martial law
and the suspension of the habeas corpus in their
cases. When arrested they are not to take
their chances of escape before the civil tribu
nals, where they may find sympathizing cronies
on the bench or in the jury box, but are to be
tried by court martial.
This action has been rendered absolutely ne
cessary by the combinations known to exist to
diecou'rage enlistments and resist the draft. So
far from being mere conjectures, these conspira
cies have been well establitited by the most in
disputable testimony. The government, there
fore, is bound, by a due tegard to the preserva
tion of the republic, to adopt the strongest
measures it can to punish these aiders and abet
tons of the rebellion. We rejoice most heartily
at this action, believing it to 'be for the best
interests of the Union.
PROF. McCoy delivered a very beautiful and
a very appropriate speech to the Thirteehth
Regiment, Penna. Volunteer Militia, Colonel
Johnson, this morning, on the Capital Grounds.
His remarks were the more appropriate, because
the regiment had justreturned from the border,
where it had distinguished itself by the disci
pline which was displayed in the action of all
the men. It was this discipline that Prof.
McCoy endeavored to urge on every soldier—as
discipline is as necessary to secure victory as
stubborn courage or indomitable valor. The
Thirteenth Regiment goes home to-day.
SOLDIERS AND PATRIOTS OF PENNSYL
Soldiers and patriots of Pennsylvania, who
have been and are now fighting the battles of
our country against traitors in arms, we would
call your attention to TRAITORS WHO ARE IN OUR
OWN MIDST, and under the guise of Democracy
are appealing to the people of Pennsylvania to
put them in political power again; mss unit
BRECKENRIDGE DEMOCRACY WHO COMMENCED THIS
UNHOLY REBELLION, for bear in mind that rEns
REBELLION COMMENCED IN SOUTH CAROLINA, A
SEAM WHICH NEVER VOTED FOR ANY PARTY BUT
THIS SAME 13RECKENREDOR DEMOCRACY, and that

PROMINENT LRADIP. AND INSTIGATOR OF THIS AO-
CURSED REBELLION, ARE MEMBERS Or TUE SAME
BRECKINRDXII DEMOCRACY WHO ARE NOW ASKING
THE PEOPLE OF PIC3IO3YLVANIA TO VOTH FOE THEM
AT THE COMING ZLIOTION : and someas and PA-
TitioTs we want you to read, and we want every
FATHER and mornita in Pennsylvania to read
what this Breckinridge Democracy think of the
soldiers of the north who have been giving
their life blood in defence of the Union. The
following article we take from a Raecatimumaz
DEMOOBATIO Perm, (the Mobile. Earning News.)
This article was _published_ by that paper just
after the first five or six hundred patriots of
Pennsylvania went through Baltimore to
Washington at the call of the President to pro
tect the capital of the nation. Read it carefully,
FATHERS and moressa of Pennsylvania; and
then, if you can, ask your sons and husbands
to vote for this Breckinridge Democracy :
" There are now, as nearly as can be esti- I
mated, upward of one hundred thousand organ
ized and armed men in the seven Confederate
States, under orders or anxiously awaiting
them, to spring to the post of danger at the
word of Jefferson Davis. Within eight days'
time at the furthest he can concentrate sixty
thousand of these men, the best soldiers in the'
world, at any point on the northern border,
and hurl this splendid army like an avalanche
upon the foe. If the battle ground be in Vir
ginia or Maryland, as it probably will, the
grand army of the Confederacy will be doubled
or trebled by the rallying hosts of those States.
We have reason to believe that hundreds of
companies are' now on the move, or will be
within 24 hours—all bound somewhere. Such
is our immediate war power.
" Should we move on Washington, does the
enemy expect to bold it against us ? To bold
it against an army of a hundred thousand men
and a hostile local population ? Large as the
telegraphic reports from the land of the enemy
read, it will be at least a month before Lincoln
can muster into service and concentrate into an'
army a hundred thousand men. We are ready,
he is not. Our people, naturally so inclined,
have been making soldiers of theMselves for
months. His people have been doing nothing
of the sort, and are not naturally so inclined.
Our ordinances of secession were really the
notes of our warlike preparation. Their fitst
note of preparation was the cannonade of
Charleston. We have had three months the
start of them and are ready ; they are not.
"Months ago, the minds of our people had
settled resolvedly to meet any issue. Now the
people of the North are all in wild panic and
confusion of war's first alarms. We confront
'them, a cool, collected foe, that will never
give them time to recover from their surprise.
We are ready for action—they are getting rea
dy to prepare to act- They may raise plenty
of men—men who prefer enlisting to starva
tion, scurvy 'fellows from the back slums of
Cities, whom Falstaff would have not marched
through Coventry with—but these recruits are
not soldiers, least of all the soldiers to ,meat
the hotblooded, thoroughbred, iweettfefus men
of the South. Trencher soldiers, who, enlisted
to war ontheie eeeions, not on men, they ale
—such as marched through Baltimore—squalid ,
wretched, 'ragged and half naked, as the news
papers of that city report them. Fellows who
do not know the breech of a musket from ,its,
muzzle, and had rather filch a musket than
fight an enemy in manly, open combat. White
slaves, peddling wretches, small change knaves
and vagrants, the dregs and off-ecouriugs.
of •the populace—these are the levied "forces'.'
whom Lincoln suddenly arrays as candidates
Or the honor of being slaughtered by gentle
men—such as Mobile sent to battle yesterday.
Let them come South, and we will put our no.
groes to the dirty work of killing them. But
they will not come South. Not a wretch of
them will live on this side of the Border
longer than it will take us to reach the groend
and dri4e them over.
' "Mobile is sending forth to wage the war of
independence the noblest and bravest of her
sons. It is expensive, extravagant to put such
Material against the riff-raff of mercenaries
whom the abolition power has called to war '
upon us. We'oorild almost hope that a better
class of men would fall into the Northern
ranks ' that our gentleman might fi nd iceman
worthy of their steel, whom it would be more,
difficult to conquer, and whose conquering
would be more honorable. For the present,
however, we need not expect,to find, any foe
worth fighting, with the exeption of a .few
regiments, for the North is just getting ready,
and will likely be whipped , before it is ready."
There, patriots of Pennsylvania, you have :a
sample of what these Breckinridge Democrats
of. the South think of you, and they are trying
to get into power again by having their brother
Breckinridge Democrats at the North re-organ
ize, and by lies, misrepresentations and abuse of
President Lincoln and the Government, induce
you to vote for them and pnt them in power.
Hear what the Nashville Union, a good Union
paper of the South, says of this attempt tore
organize this Breckinridge Democracy :
"We have our own opinion as to the real on
of this damnable attempt. The Southern'
rebel leaders are at the bottom of a. Nothing is
more certain , than this to our minds. The
chiefs of the rebellion see that their.work is
about to prove a disastrous failure, and so they'
send word to this effect to their Northern allies :
'l2liVe us two or three free States to vote for our
men, and we will bring back the Cotton States
in solid phalanx, and hold the offices together
es before.' This is , certainly the programme.
Will the people see it performed V"
, Yes, fellow-citizens of Pennsylvania, that is
quebition for you to answer. "Will you see this
bargain between the Northern and . Southern
Deniocrets carried out ?" Do you Want to add
more than five hundred Millions of "dollars to
the ;public debt, to be paid by yoa and your
children? If you do, then vote to carry out
this`bargain between the Northern - and South
ern Breekinridge Democracy, for just so sure as
they get possession of the political power, just
- will you have to pay every dollar of the
debeincurred by these Southern traitors in car
rying-on their war against the Government.
Why is it that the aristocracy and money-lords
of England have given their sympathy all
through this rebellion to these Southern trai
tors? Because they hold millions and millions
of the confederate debt for the arms and am
munition and goods they have supplied then,
with,, and they know that debt will be worth
to' them unless those traitors either conquer
pennopluanie Wally (tideway!), 4Thurotatp 'Afternoon, September 25, 1862
us, or get the political power to compel our Gov
ernment to assume the debt, and this is what
they are trying to do.
It is for you then, fellow-citizens of Pennsyl
vania, to say at the ballot-box whether you
will support this Breckinridge Democracy in
carrying out this programme, or whether you
will support the Administration and the Gov
ernment in crushing out this rebellion and pun
ishing the traitors who brought it on. •
ONE Goon Toss Dzszayss ANOTEMIL—A friend
at our elbow suggests• that in return for the
services which Weirik, of the Selinsgrove limes,
rendered to Miller, the Breckinridge candidate
for Congress in this district, Miller should offer
his professional services to defend Weirik in
the suit of treason lately preferred against him
in Union comity. Weirik was one of the con
ferees in the Congressional Conference of this
district, and when he committed himself to
treason, he was doubtless acting out the plan
laid down in that conference, with the indiscre
tion of pushing his treason too far. This,
however, should not lose him the support,
Sympathy.:Or defence of hie friends. We 40-

The Postoffice Department has received in

from their legitimate purpose, by circu-,

stamps the Department is embarrassed in the
supply for mail purposes. The public therefore
are interested In discountenancing their circula

OVERNOR OF THE SIB COMMONWEALTH.
WHIREAS, The threatened invasion of Penn
sylvania by the rebel army has been arrested
by the prompt and patriotic response of loyal
men of the State, and the signal victory
achieved by Gen licelellan's army on the An
And wherms, The alacrity with whioh the
people in every section of the Commonwealth I
rushed to the rescue of their brethren on the
Cumberland Valley border, is worthy of the
highest measure of praise. Although not re
quired by the terms of the call to pass the bor
ders of the State, our brave men, unused to the
rigors of war and untrained in military move
ments, not only entered Maryland, but held
Hagerstown against an advancing foe, pressed
forward to the Potomac, and resisted the threat
ened movement of the rebels upon Williams
port until troops in the 'United States service
arrived and relieved them. Their timely and
heroic action has saved the state from the tread
of an invading enemy, whose necessities made
even military strategy subordinate to plunder.
Now Therefore, I, ARDRIW G. CuaTne Gov
ernor of the Commonwealth do hereby order
that the troops called into the service of the
State by General Order. No. 36, be 'discharged,
and that they be sent to Their homes as rapidly
as transportation be furnished, and in
the name of our mighty State, and in behalf
of our threatened people on the' border, I ten

by dissbarged from active service, should take
prompt measures to preserve and perfect their
organizations, and that new ones should be
formed in every county, so that they may at all
times be ready to answer the call of the State
should their services again be required. Arms
will be issued to them as soon as they can make
reg\ular requisitions in accordance with law,
and the companies lately in the service of the
State, will be preferred to others, should the
supply not be equal to the demand. It is confi
dently expected, however, that all the organized

TBE it made upon the people of Pennsyl
vania for fifty thousand volunteers to re
sist the threatened invasion of the State was
nobly and promptly responded to, and thus
thousands were deprived of their right of appeal
under the regulations providing for the coming
draft. This right must not be forfeited by a
patriotic effort to guard our state against the
advance of a ruthless foe, and the postponement
of the draft becomes a necessity that I cannot
Notwithstanding the earnest efforts of officers
charged with the duties of preparing for the
draft, the city of Philadelphia, and the counties
of Allegheny, Erie, Lnzerne, Montgomery,
Franklin and others, including more than one
third the entire population of the state, cannot
•be prepared to make the draft with justice to
these citizens at the time appointed, nor for
some days thereafter. In Philadelphia, and
several other sections of the state, where tem
ntry residents are numerous, it has been found
impossible to ascertain with any degree of ao
cinacy the proper credits to be allowed for men
in the service, without resorting to the descrip
tive rolls at Washington. To avoid manifest
injustice to these districts, the number of men
they have contributed to the service must be
thus ascertained before the draft shall be made.
thrraorr, Sept; 24
Believing that the exercise of as high a prero
gative by the government as a draft of its peo
pie should, above all considerations, commend
itself to the highest sense of justice and impar
tiality of the citizens, for the reasons before
stated, the draft in Pennsylvania is hereby post
poned until Thursday, the 16th day of October,
The Commissioners of the several counties
will fix a time at some convenient point in
their respective counties to hear applications
for exemption of persons now in service of the
State and who have not already had opportu
nity to attend such appeal.
Should the draft be made in any of the noun
tieB on the 25th inst., because of the failure of
the order to reach the Commissioner, the draft
mid e will be valid in all respects, but the men
drafted will be permitted to resume their re
spe'ptive vocations until the . 16th of October,
when they will be called into the service.
