The 18th Regiment Pa. Militia
This has been a high day for this regiment.
Organized on the 18th inst , it started at once
on its destination, Col. Ralph L. Manley com
manding. After vexatious and most annoying
delays it reached Chambersburg about 8 o'clock
next morning, having been in the cars nineteen
hours, including the whole night. At Chain
bersburg the regiment was ordered' to proceed
to Hagerstown, which it did without disem
barking. Swiftly as the train mu this part of
the journey, though through a tine eouutry and
eulivened by almost constant cheers along the
line, was still tedious. Thence it marched
somewhat more than a mile out the road to
Williamsport, within short supporting distance
of the extreme advance lines of the Penn's.
On Saturday afternoon orders were received
to return, our duties there being ended. Obe
diently, though reluctantly, the 18th took up
the line of march to Greencastle. Here, with
admirable and soldier-like patience, it awaited
transportation from Sunday morning till Thurs
day evening. On Wednesday, however, it be
came obvious that it would soon move. After
a most delightful and refreshing prayer meet
ing, conducted by Major John Crawford Brown,
notice was given of a meeting of the regiment
at headquarters. Almost every oue not on duty
was quickly assembled.
The meeting was organized by appointing
the following officers
President—Shick Benthy, Company 0, of
Washington, Pa.
Vice Presidents—J. J. Zercher, Company A ;
H. J. Rena, Company B ; Freeman Jones,
Company C ; Daniel Gremberlio, Company D ;
Samuel Hells, Company E ; Albert Thompson,
Company F ; 0. 0. Hawse, Company G ; A. J.
Linn, Company H ; James Irwin, Company I ;
Jerome Thompson, Company K.
Secretaries—Wm. J. Thompson, Company F ;
E. T. Kohback, Company F ; John Templeton,
Company H.
The President, with his peculiar earnestness,
brevity, perspcuity and power, at once awaken
ed the deepest interest in the regiment, in the
objects of the meeting.
lion. George V. Lawrence, of Company G,
read the following :
The call which the Governor of Pennsylvania
made for the organization of the militia of the
State, has accomplished its purpose. The State
has not been invaded, the vile hosts have Loin
defeated by the Union army in a desperate' bat
tle on ground chosen by themselves ; and the
soil of Maryland is not now polluted by a single
armed traitor ; therefore,
Resolved, That as we responded cheerfully to
the call for defence, we as.willingly lay down
our arms and return to our peaceful pursuits,
cherishing the associations here formed under
such important circumstances es among the
most interesting of our lives.
Baykal, That the superior and subordinate
officers of the regiment are entitled to our
hearty thanks for their gentlemanly and sol
dierlike bearing to us all, and we tender them
our congratulations in the separation.
Resolved, That the prompt action of Gov .
Curtin in calling-for aid in defending the State
from invasion meets our hearty approval.
On motion of C. B. Miller, Company D, froni
Snyder county, these resolutions were unani
mously adopted. ,
In response to the 2nd resolution, short ad
dresses were made by the following officers :
Col. B. S. Maclay,•modest, straightforward,;
brief and buldierly ; Maj. S. C. Brown, clear,
refined, touching and eloquent ; Capt. Simpson'

Company A, direct, earnest and manly ; Capt.
Hutchison, Company C, vigorous, godly and
zealous ; Capt. Alexander, brusque, sturdy and
martial. Further responses were also made by
Limits. S. C. Swallow, Company E, and Wm.
Anvil of Company h..
Major Brown offered a resolution•.unanimously
adopted by the officers, commending the men
for their cheerful alacrity in obeying, •patience

the following : :

that . when he closed, no one was found in all
the regiment to say a single word on the other
side, though called for from the chair. His.
remarks were followed by loud cheering.
The resolution was then adopted unaninwusly,
and followed by the heartiest cheers for Gov

for the Union. Henry K. Ritter, as soon as

Pottsville, 24th September, 1862.
At a public political meeting, held in ; the
court house in Pottsville, Schuylkill county,
in February, 1861, John T. Werner, who was
sheriff of Schuylkill county from 1846 to 1849,
was present, and be heard Francis W. Hughes

that was exported from the United States,
"Cotton is king, and I thank God for it."
Mr. Werner read the above this morning and

a Tower, Esq., PottMlle, Pa. :
DEAR Sm. : In the winter of 1861 I was in
the cars, going to Philadelphia, and while be
tween Pottsville and Reading, I was sitting on
the left-hand side of the car, and Francis W.
Hughes, of Pottsville, was in the same car,
sitting on the right hand side of the car, and
two seats ahead of me. I think there was not
anybody sitting on the same seat of the car with
him ; I know there was not with me. He was
conversing with a gentleman, who sat right
opposite him, and the second seat ahead of me,
on the same side with me. I heard Francis W.
Hughes, then and there, say to that gentleman,
"I am a delegate to the Democratic State Con
don at Harrisburg, and I am going over to
attend the Convention, and when there, s I
intend offering a resolution lu-fore that Conven
tion, that Pennsylvania seced. from the Union,
and join herself with the South, and leave
Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and Massachu
setts, and them d-.d little petty States, to
subsist on their codfish and Plymouth rock."
You are at liberty to make any use of this
statement you may think , proper, and I shall
be ready to verify it by my oath, at any time,
when required to do so.
Very respectfully,
Parramap, Sept. 8, 1862
C. Town, Bill--Dear Sir:- -I have duly con
siderea the importance of your inqpiry relative
to my personal knowledge of the attempt made
some eighteen months ago by F. W. Hughes,
Esq., to "switch" the State of Pennsylvania
out of the Union, in nearly the same manner,
and by the same unholy means that were em
ployed to carry Tennessee, Missouri, Louisiana,
and other States out ; and in compliance with
your request, will endeavor to give a plain, un
varnished statement of such facts as I may be
possessed of, confining myself as strictly as pos
sible to the precise language used at the time.
A. day or two prior to the assembling of the
Democratic State Convention at Harrisburg, in
February, 1861, I heard it bruited about that
Mr. Hughes, (who was a delegate to that Con
vention,) designed to introduce into that body
a resolution, the object of which was to carry
Pennsylvania out of the Union, and to join the
so called Southern Confederacy.
The report notwithstanding my knowledge
of Mr. Hughes' sympathy for the South, (he
having previously told me in conversation with,
him, that the only mistake in Mr Buchanan's.
Administration was that " he did not receive .
Messrs. Ellett A. Co., of South Carolina, as Com
tnissiours , instead of `distinguished citizens,'
and treat with them upon the subject of their
mission ;") the report, I say, struck me es be
ing so manifestly absurd as to be scaroely wor
thy of notce.
On the evening of the day of the Convention,
(I think the 22d of the month,) while on my
way home, I fell in company with his nephew,
John Hughes, Esq., (law , partner of F. W.
Hughes,) and as we walked a considerable dis
tance in the same direction, I took occasion to
mention 'to him the reports I had heard in re
gard to Frank's secession resolution. He ra
•"Yes I think that Frank is doing wrong
in that matter." I asked him If it were really
true then, that he designed to offer such a reso
lution? He answered, "Yes—he took such a
resolution with him—l read it myself several
times; and advised him not to offer it." I need
hcarcely say, that what - I - was disposed to re
gard before4e, .idle rumor tad now become
a stern reality. On my return from tea, I stop
ped to see the Judge Regina, and commu
nicated what John Hughes told me. The
Judge grilled and said i t "Why, Frank showed
Me that resoltition before he left, and asked my
opinion of it. I advised him for God's sake,
,not to offer it, as it ;would kill him politically,
forever." I anxiously awaited the published
proceedings of the Convention, and was grati
fiedio see that the resolution in question was
not among them. Thus matters rested until
some time, I think, in April or May following,
lithen, on the way to my , place ,of business, I
met Mr. James Blowart, of Harrisburg, an old
friend and acqOaintance. The war having been
aellunly commenced, our conversation natural
ly turned upon that subject. Some pretty se
here strictures were made by myself on what : I
crsidered this mistakes of Mr. Buchanan's ad
:ministration, and as being . in my opinion the
direct cause of all our troubles. My friend,
on the other hand, defended Mr. Buch
lhan's policy. While thus engaged, we were
joined by Gen. J. Y. Jamee, of Warren, a mo
tile' friend and acquaintance of both 'of us. Mr.
James enstained my views on the question, and
,the "talk" became somewhat animated, in the
.course of '1%116'1 mentioned the effort attempt
ed to be made by Mr. Hughes in the late Dem
ocratic State Convention to " switch" Pennsyl
vania out of the Union, when I was interrupted
by Mr. James, who said: Why, wasn't lin
that Convention ; and on the committee to draft
resolutions t And didn't Mr. Hughes come to
me in,the committeeloom and ask me to sup=
port his d—d, treasonable resolution ?" He
continued "After I had read it I got so d--d
mad that shook my fast and swore that if he
attempted to offer that. resolution, either in
committee or Convention , that I would pitch
him and his resolution heLlforemost out of the
window." "I. don't . , know," continued the
General,'" whether it Nea my threat or what,
but I neithei;`,beird i hor saw anything more of
*et resolutjcit The material points of Mr.
es" itateihent were subsequently admitted
by him to Mr. L. F. Whitney, of this borough,

he thought, the result of this rebellion, and
the disgrace of repudiation would finally be
the result ; that he (Hughes) did not want to
live in such a country. He said if he could fixl
his matters to suit him—Or languige to that
effect—he would go to some other country or
place; Wells does not remember which. Wells
then asked Hughes where he would go. He'
replied, "to Sandy Bottom, as Natty Mills used
to say." Wells said, " Hughes, you come to
these conclusions upon the basis that this re
bellion cannot be put down." Hughes replied,l
"yes." Wells then asked him what conclusion
he would come to, upon the supposition that
this rebellion could and would be put dower.-1
He said, "Of course, then, I should come to a
quite different conclusion ;" but said, at the
same time, that he believed it could not be put
down. Wells reiterated that he firmly believed
that it could and would be put down. Hughes
to this replied, that he wished he could see or
believe as Wells did ; but he could not or would
The foregoing was - lead by Wells, and he
says it is correct. He says Hughes gave reasons
for his belief, the chief of which was the bad
feeling between the North and South, relating
to the negro. Hughes justifies holding the
negro in slavery. C. LOESER.

the widow of the late Judge Donnell, of Sun.

of friendship. In the course of conversation
Mrs. Donnell said, "Mr. Hobart, you know my

and for some time before his death the state of

and said overtures had been made to him by a
prominent politician of your plaoi, of Schuyl
