VOTERS OF DAUPHIN COUNTY,
Beware of the Most Infamous
The emissaries of the Breckenridge County Co
mmittee are flooding Dauphin county with extras
printed at the Patriot and Union office, contain
ing the most infamous falsehoods ever uttered
by mortal man. These extras contain, among
other matter, articles refering to taxation
which are utterly false and devoid of the least
substance of truth.
la one of the towns in the upper end of the
county, these lying emissaries made a landlord
believe that he would be obliged to pay a li
sense of $4O extra, if be kept a Bagatelle table
on his premised. This man not having seen the
tax law, went actually to work and removed
the table from his premises, on the repreeenta
tion of the men who lay claims to respects.

We ask every candid man, in the county of
Dauphin, whether persona who circulate such
wilful and malicious falsehoods against the
Government, can be considered loyal citizens.
TBE OEM RE CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT.
We continue to receive letters from numbers
of the honest and intelligent men of Centre
county, complaining bitterly of the conduct of
James T. Hale, whose apostacy they denounce
in the broadest terms, and whose ingratitude
they declare they will repay, if it takes years to
.find the opportunity. Gentlemen, that is your
and not our business. So far as we are con
cerned, we think that James T. Hale is now in
his true position, and if he lived a hundred miles
below Washington city, he would be as active
against the government as he is now bitter
against the loyal men of his party.
While on this subject, we will just add for
the benefit of our numerous vaders in the Cen
tre district, that we were called on this morn
ing by one of the Conferees from Centre coun
ty who nominated Mr. Armstrong for Congress.
oar visitor is a man of honor and veracity, and
assured us that Hale had pledged to him his
honor that he would not be a candidate against
Wm. Armstrong ; that he, [Hale,] had received
etters from Democrats Importuning him to
run as such, but that his honor was pledged
and he did not even answer the letters because
he was bound to support Armstrong. What
Induced the change in Hale's honor, our in
formant declares can best be answered by Judge
Gamble, of Lycoming county, between whom and
Hale a sort of bargain exists. Gamble wants to go
to the U. S. Senate, and the suspicion is that
Hale wants to aid him. If he can secure a few
votes by his apoidacy, he will have served his
friend Gamble. Here is a point for the honest,
loyal men of Centre county. Remember that
Hale has no idea of being elected. He wants
to destroy the Republican party—to secure the
election of Gamble to the U. S. Senate, and aid
in a ruinous compromise of the issue with trai
tors. We give these facts to our old friends in
Centre County- Let them challenge Hale on
their authenticity, and if he denies their truth,
we will give the name of our informant, and
thus drive Hale to the wall of his political in
OUR STATE TICKET. •
No local consideration—or no personal pre
ference for any candidate—of the candidates for
the Legislature or for Congress, must lead us
to forget the weighty reasons which should urge
us to secure, by all honorable means, the suc
cess of the state candidates, respectively, Hon.
Thomas IL Cochran for Auditor General, and
Gen. William S. Rose for Surveyor General. If
these men are defeated, of course the tory sym
pathisers will claim that the people of the state
are opposed to the policy of the government to
crush out the rebellion. It will be claimed, and
quoted abroad, that*ennsylvania, the largest
among the loyal states, is opposed to a war of
coercion—opposed to force to vindicate author
ity—and in favor of the recognition of the Southern
Confederacy. If the vote of Pennsylvania should
be cast against Cochran and Ross, with the issue
thus broadly made that the voiceof the people in
the approaching election is to indicate the right
of the government either to coerce a disloyal
people, or the right of that people to revolu
tionise by force of arms against this govern
ment, of Course such a result would be tanta
mount to a recognition of the Southern Con
federacy. It would be quoted in Europe, by
the emissaries of rebellion in that quarter, that
the people of the north are in favor of the re
cognition of the Southern Confederacy, but are
held in check by a tyrannical Administration,
backed by an overwhelming army. ' And in the
face of this claim, Europe would not be long in
extending the force of arms to recognize and
assist in the establishment of the Southern
Tide is a plain issue, or at least it is a plain
effect which would follow the defeat of Cochran
and Ross. ' The dongh-face sympathisers un
derstand this fact, and therefore they are work-
Ing steadily and strenuously to secure this re
sult. If they can manage to defeat Cochran
and Ross, and elect their Congressional and
Legislative delegation, they will have secured
all that they want to complete the destruction
of the Uolon and the ruin of the government.
Our friends must view this subject fairly. They
must make the elation of the entire ticket—of
state, district and county nominations—a mat
ter on which depends the safety of the gov
ernment. Remember, as we vote we fix
our destinies for all time. It is not a mere
matter of dollars and cents, as our wily foes
seem desirous to .fix it ; nor is it the mere pay
ment of a tax for a tow years to defray the ex
penses of the struggle. It is for the life of the
nation. IT ID FOR TES PRESERVATION OF FREEDOM
FOR ALL TDB. It is whether our children now
in helpless infancy, shall live to become slaves,
and behold the enslavement of those who may
survive this struggle. While it is time, let the
people be warned. Remember, then, that as
we vote on Tuesday next, we fix our condition

and pallid form that is prostrated with sickness
unto death, speaks eloquently against false De

encouraged the slavery aristocracy to rebel, the
cowardly minions who uphold that institution
would never have raised an arm to destroy this
Union. Let freemen, then, if only to cheer and
console the victims of slavery, seek our hospi

FOR OUR COUNTRY.
We use this term very often, while appealing
to each other, and yet it is not often that we
use it undeystandingly. In the present juncture
of politics, we use it when appealing to men to
beware how they vote; to beware lest their Bia
gio vote might forever ruin the country. They
must understand, then, what this interest in
our country means.
Our Country means all that we have—lands,
tenements, home, affection, wife, children—
government 1 Destroy the government, and of
course lands, tenements, home, affection, wife
and children are lost, for without a government,
these would all become the prey and the sport
of every ambitious leader that could gather
followers for bloody incursion and tumults.
Give the rebels the Constitutional power to which
such men as Miller, Heck, Romfort, & Co., say
they are entitled, and no man's title to an acre
of land In Pennsylvania, would be worth as
much as if it was written In sand. The first
wave of rebellion would wash it away ; and
the right of rebellion is the greatest of all the
Constitutional prerogatives claimed by the
slave holders and admitted by the natural ally
of slavery, the dough-face democrat. The
voter will then understand what is meant by
voting to protect his country. He votes of
course to protect his home—to preserve hie
affections from outrage—to maintain order—to
secure liberty. Let him beware then how
he votes at the coming election. If he votes
to encourage rebellion by placing in power such
men as hillier, .the dough face candidate for
Congress, of course he endangers his home, um
Sup - pose, for instance, that Miller should be in
Congress—with a majority of his ilk—surroun
ded and led by the noes by such crafty apos
tates as Vallandigbam P Before he had served a
calendar month, he (Miller) would ba on the
record to recognize the Southern Confederacy.
He could not do otherwise and be true to him
self—and if self was even pledged against such
a course, inclination, education, instinct, taste
and prejudice would irresistibly incline him to
eastjust such a vote. It leas natural for a dough-
face to eat dirt at the feet of slavery as it is for
a buzzard to seek repast on the carcass of a car
rion. With the Southern Confederacy thus re
cognized, the people of the free states would
soon learn of what their country consisted.—
Th- farmers of Dauphin county would learn
this lesson among the first, as they would be
among the nearest to the border. They would
learn it as their farms were ravaged, their homes
desolated, their affections outraged, themselves
degraded, because slavery slops al no excess. Take
care, then, freemen, how you vote to defend
THE LANCASTER CONGRESSIONAL MS
It is amusing to read the efforts of those who
are attempting to defeat Thaddeus Stevens in
the Lancaster Congressional district. That
clique of rotten politicians have set up a sort of
wooden man named. Geo.-George K. Skim*"
and-claim for him all the virtues and abilities
`tact that the morel &tailideal appetites
and propensities of the man me such that he
should never be trusted from ,his. home. His
father made a fortune for 44°2 7 -experienced
tradesmen conduct the entire linsimis of the es
tablishment he owns—and yet on that fortune
and this husiness the dough-faces of Lancaster
claim for Mr. Steinman great merits as a man,
and of course the requisite qualities to make a
useful representative.' Onr friends in the Old
Guard will hardly allow themselves to be de.
luded by such false pretensions. In Thaddeus
Stevens they have a mana giant intellect,—
a profound statesman—an ardent patriot—a
legislator of magnificent qualities—of an expe
rience and popularity in legislation which no
other candidate in the loyal states can excel.
If the people of Lancaster county even permitted
such a man to live in private, the act would be
a monstrous wrong to themselves. But the idea
of exchanging Thaddeus Stevens for George M.
Steinman, and electing the latter over the for
mer, seems so .perfectly ridiculous among those
at a distance who know the men, that the pro
position is received as a joke, too broad and
pointed, however, for these serious times war.
Stevens will of course be elected.
A legal friend, who is thoroughly acquainted
with the records of Schuylkill county, assures
us that the property of Frank Hughes in that
county, is all mortgaged to hie brother Isaac
Hughes, of North Carolina, who is at preeent
engaged as one of the most active and ener
getic abettors of rebellion in the South. Indeed,
this same Isaac Hughes is the father of
John Hughes, at one time the dough-face
candidate for Congress in the Schuylkill
district, while Isaac and his son John, with
three other eons, are all reported tobe actually
in the rebel army, fighting with more ixounkge
than even Frank Hughes exhibits for the rebel
cause. In view of this fact, we demand "that
this mortgage of Isaac Hughes, as it is down
on the records of Schuylkill county, be at once
confiscated. What - has District Attorney Coffee,
of the United States District Court, to say on
this subject? We write this notice for his in
formation, and trust that he will at once move
in the matter.
How DM Do IT.—The Vallandigham De
mocracy, when they cannot find a man who
has been arrested for treason to his country,
nominate as the next beat thing, the man who
has done nothing for the war. For instance,
in New York, Ben Wood would have been
named by them for Governor, but his disloyalty
had begotten only an inquiry by the House of
ilepresentatives to which he belongs ; h ome hi s
friends were compelled to pick up Seymour,
who has not yet been known to give a dollar or
do a thing for the advancement of the national
cause. This is the same Seymour whose speech
has been peddled through this county, as or
thodox Democracy, and counsel for loyal men
in this great crisis. Will the honest men of
Dauphin county trust a party that must depend
on such teaching? Will - they trust
who endorse the sentiments of a man that never
gave a dollar to the support of the war, not
withstanding he is worth thoroswidst
