Saturday Afternoon, September 21,1562.
The tory organ has not, it seems, passed a
night in reflection, or if ithas, the result is a
complete "crusher," iu the way of treasonable
language and sympathy, this morning. That
is, it postpones its usual rehash of treason, for
the purpose of making political capital out of
the draft. By doing so, it questions the loyal
ty of the people, and hopes, in an underhanded
manner, to create a feeling that the military
authorities are oppressing the masses—forcing
them into servica by means of the draft. This
is a sly dodge, and on account of its originality,
we must give credit to Frank Hughes for the
matter. On the same subject of the draft, while
alluding to the rumor that the President in
tends to order an additional draft of 800,000
men, the tory organ insists that "the abolition
ists should be compelled to furnish the whole
number." We can assure the tory van that
every abolitionist in the service has faithfully
performed his duty, not like some people we
wot of, ever absent when battles were to he
Aside from these low flings, the organ, this
morning, is stale, flat, and unprofitable.
Those who Battle for the Defence Have a Right to
Vote for the Control of the Government.
The law of Pennsylvania clearly gives the
soldier who is absent in the defence of the corn.
tnonwealth the right to vote for those who are
to administer its government. This law is still
on the statute books. Its provisions have never
been pronounced unconstitutional—its justice
has never been questioned except by those who
are indirectly parties to the rebellion for the
overthrow of the government and the destruc
tion of the Union.
We believe that it is the duty of the Gov
ernor to issue his proclamation, providing for
such election to be held in the orations camps
throughout the country, which contain compa
nies or. regiments organized by citizens of Penn
sylvania. If this duty is neglected, it will be
the virtual disfranchisement of those who,
above all others, have a sacred right to vote.
The soldier, when he entered the ranks, did not
dream of yielding a single political right which
he exercised before—his enlistment was not
made in the faith that his disfranchisement
would follow. Those who seek to give this
construction to the law, we care not whether it
is by legal reasoning or judicial theorising, do
so for the purpose of counteracting the senti
ment which seeks expression in favor of the
government, and thus insure the success of the
traitor cause.
The men who are absent from the state, are
commanded by officers commissioned by the Go.
veroor—are on a service to fulfill the obligation
which the state owes to the Natiofial Govern
ment—have gone forth with full expectation of
returning to Pennsylvania, because their fami
lies reside within its limits, and all their btu:fi
nessed interests are centered here. On the ac
tion of legislation, as we have before main
tained, such bualneat in part depends'for Bocce*.
On the result of an election, that legislation
may be controlled against the interests of those
who are absent, armed and battling for the de
fence of the state. Shall these men be deprived
of their voice in a choice of such legislators ?
Shall their local interests be bartered away by
local demagogrtesaud office-hunters, while they
are in the ranks of the army ? The very ques
tion is preposterous—the very idea revolting.
Therefore, let Gov. Curtin issue his proclamation
that each election be held in every camp where
there is a Pennsylvanian. Let the state assure
her eons that wherever they go in her ser vice, the
protection of her laws, the franchises of her gov
ernment, and the prestige of her name fol
low—follow in their full grandeur and glory—so
that our brother may feel that while his arm
is bared for the fight, his voice and his vote are
as potential in the government of his dear old
Commonwealth, as if he was at home, combat
ting the corrupt demagogues who are now so
desperately plotting for political power.
We, repeat, again, let the soldier vote. Let
progir4iptice be at once Made to hold such
elections in the different camps. Let the '
Goveriistitisime his proclamation to that effect—
and our political victories will be made as splen
did by tbe VO* of the soldier, as our martial
triumphs' are made complete and glorions by
his valor.
With a class of brawlers etch as are now
leading the forlorn squads of the Breckhoridge
' factions in the loyal states, it is a comulOn
boast that, "the Democracy are doing the batiliv
of this war." Of course this is idle boast, and
if the boast did not do any more harm than
stain the , lips and pollute the hearts of those
who make it, with its falsification, we could
afford to pass it by with contempt. But
as these lies have been adopted as a portion of
the system of electioneering inaugurated by
Prank Hughes in the matter which he is now'
furnishing to the. Democratic (God save l t he
mark) press of the state, it becomes the lover of t
the truth to meet and explode all such dastardif
yet peculiar Locofoco tricks. A writer for the
Philadelphia Press contributes to this expostir
in a very few words, and insists that it mils, be
plain to every mind, if the Democrats re
form three-fourths of the rank and file of t
army, (he enrolment will show that a greater
par centage of the fighting population have en
listed in the Democratic than in the Republi
can districts of the state. Now, the enrolinent
shows the very reverse of this, for from it' it
appears that a far greater per centage of the
fighting population of the Republican districts
have gone to war than from the Deinodratic
districts. The Democratic county of Nor.:
thaw ptou has sent less men to war thau; the
Republican county of Blair, and yet Blair polls
but little More than one-half the vote of Nor
thampton. The Republican county of llicifeari
has sent more men to war than the Democratic
~aritymf Monroe, and yet Monroe polls fifty
per cent. more votes than McKean. The
fighting Quakers of Republican Chester county
have sent within five per cent. as many men to
war as Democratic Berko, and yet the vote of
Berke is thirty per cent. more thee Chester's. I ,
The combined vote of the Republioatt.counties
of Letwrence, Union, Clinton and Blair, at'the
last Presidential election, was fourteen thou
sand fohundred and MY-three, and the com
bined'-'le of the Democratic counties, of
Barks, Northampton and Monroe, at the EMS
election, was twenty-seven thousand three
hundred and thirty-three; yet the Republican
counties named have sent to the war over
three hundred more mentia - n the Democratic
counties they are contrasted with, although
they polled hardly mole than half the number of
We boldly assert that, if the Marshal's re
turns from all the loyal states were made pub
lic, the same exhibit would be presented as that
which is exhibited in the returns from Pennsyl
vania. If all the returns from all the countlei
in the state could be fairly laid before the p*
ple, these Breekinridge brawlers would be coin
pelted, by very shame and chagrin (if such an
impulse as shame is left in their natures,) to
cease their boastings. The fact would be reveal
ed that the men who are fighting our battles,
are not those who have been accustomed to eat
dirt at the feet of the men who make slavery of
more importance and value than Liberty
and Union. It would be revealed that a large
portion of the masses of the once power
ful Democratic party bad turned their hacks on
their old, corrupt and cowardly leaders, that
, they were standing shoulder to shoulder with
the gr,- at masses of the Republican party, offer
ing their blood and sacrificing their lives in
defence of a government that Breckinridge
Democracy has rushed to the brink of ruin.
Let us, then, hear no more'of these questions,
Where are your Wide-Awakes ? Where are your
THE BAGGING or Me BMW in Maryland was
unexpected, it now seems, on the part of the
public, too great to be realized by 'our army.
Such a result would have been inexpressibly
gratifying; but such an achievement was well.
nigh morally impossible. A garrison may be
captured; a few thousand men may be surroun
ded by overwhelming numbers and made to
surrender. But one army can hardly capture
another nearly if not its own size. Indeed the
"great victories" of history nearly all fall short
of this. Harmon almost invariably whipped
hie enemies; but he seldom nabbed them. The
battle of Waterloo was decisive against the
"dark brewed man of Austerlitz," but the
French army was .beaks, not bagged. As has
been well observed, "Witmenrces won the bat
tle, but BLUCHER reaped the fields of victory."
It was by following up and harreseing the rear ,
of the flying foe, that the work of disaster was
So it will be in the present instance. The
Rebels were defeated in Maryland. It may be
possible to convert that defeat into a rout; to
follow them up so closely as to break them In
to fragments. If this is done, the war is virtu
ally ended; if not, no vital advantage has
been gained. We have repulsed an insolent
foe; but we have not beaten out his brains.
He will "still live" to vex and worry us; "still
live" to fight other battles—possibly to achieve
other successes. SISVIRY is.the cause of a Re
hellion which has cost us Millions of Treieure
and Hecatombs of Lives. This Rebellion
against a Government which protested and
cherished alike the rights and interests of all
the States, has neither justification or excuse.
The forfeiture of Slaves will be a light penalty
for so great a crime.

Fuca( ALL Acconwrs, given to us by officers
and privates who me respected at horde for
their courtesy and their veracity, Gen. Reynolds
did not elevate himself by his conduct towards'
the militia of Pennsylvania, during their late
demonstration on the border. We have the
assurances of several gentlemen, that his eon
duct was outrageous. So much so, that_ at one
time a revolt was actually threatened by some
of the men. When will the officers of the reg
ular army learn that the people are their mas
ters, and that when they rouse in their might,
as they did in this state a week ago, it is not
to be treated as serfs or dogs.

they were . terribly effective. Every'soldier
seemed to vie with the other ln - retrieVing the
honor of our arms—and everyshot told—while
the enemy ' s ranks grew thinner and' thinner.
Night-fall closed ,the struggle, and 'early in
the day, the rebels sent in 'a' flag of
.truce to
bury their dead. This sal honorably granted,
but how faithless they - were to it, was subse
quently shown Out on the battle field, our

At the top of the hill above the stone bridge
over Antietam' creek left of Sharpaburg, the
enemy's dead ley in winrows. The vast ma
jority were shot either in . the - head Or breast,
showing not only the destructrie fire they sus
tained,,but the effectiveness of'thie aim of our
brave soldiers. Here Gen..Wrigl4 ol the Pal
metto State lay dead, 'herr° - Hill was
wounded. The rebels renitiveLthefr wownled
to the barns and houses t rear towards
Sheppardstown,' and eve re for miles
could be seen the red flag. •
Our loss has been heavy, brit' theirs ig treble
in numbers. Dr. Halsey, of ,North Carolina,
Brigade Surgeon under Hill, statedlo us that
their loss was frightful; addlilthnugh thou
sands remained in'the vielitWof the battle
field under trees and sheds,,Outhouses and
barns; and as many More slightl 6 leaded have
recrossed the Potomac. The wilole day of
Thursday was occupied in buryinglike dead and
administering to the wounded; but;, when
nightfall came many were still midi& for.
During the night the enemy reiYtalsed the
river sl2 ford below SheppardatoWn; the bridge
at theilatter place having been destroyed. The
rear guard of the rebels was onivarvshour in
advance of our forces. Our suppif of muni
tion being small,•it was not deethed: expedient
to follow the "butternuts," as otir soldiers gen
erally term them; across the river. They left
many of their dead upon the fieldsoret as a
general thing, their wounded were as•arell pro
vided for as circumstances would permit. , A
detail of our men MEW employed to bury their
dead—but the heat of the, ain't:nosing decom
position, some, were put out of 'the way in a
method not hardly proper. ' Of this we shall
not speak 'further, only sremarking, had the
rebels treated our dead: in the manner alluded
to, there would:have been a terrible , " hue and
cry" about it. Their dead are not yet, at the
present writing, all buried, owing to the extent
of the battle-ground—through corn fields and
thickets—although search isibeing energetically
made. The horses killed in the action have
been burned.
Our detail found on Friday a place where a
number of broken caisous and cannon carriages
were strewn, but . the cannon were missing.
In the vicinity were a number of new made
graves. Thisbeing suspicious, one was opened,
when it -NU found to contain a brass field'
piece, of English manufacture. Fourteen can
non were thus exhumed.
For miles, remains of the battle can be seen.
Arms, knapsacks and clothing lie scattered in
all directions. Among the latter were found
a large number of letters, several of which were
sent you. One letter, taken from the pocket
of a dead rebel; was frota a young lady in Al
abama, who earnestly desired. her lover to
"send her the shin-bone of a dead Yankee to
make a blow horn of." W hat would that
young lady think, should we, acting. upon her
suggestion, send her the shin-bone of her lover.
Many. incidents.of Wednesday's battle have
come,to our knowledge; which, had we time,
should write you.c It is not known yet what
will be: the destination of this army—but bear
in remembrance one 'thing, that wherever it
goes in the future,•victory•will follow it—and
when. this rebellion :is crushed out forever, there
will bo."no higher honor than to belong to the
