THE LAST CARD
The last card of the eiders and abettors of
the Breckenridge faction and treason is now
circulated by that party throughout the county
in the shape of a bill signed Two Fax; giving
certain private transactions between him and
our candidate for Congress. We know nothing
of the financial transactions between these two
gentlemen, and care less, but we do know that
there are other persons who are now living
sumptuously on farms and in houses owned by
their wives, while at the same time debts are
unpaid by the husband ; but these are private
matters, and we leave them between the credi
tors and debtors to arrange as they may see fit.
But we are now dealing with public men,
and we pronounce the allegations made against
the public character of JOHN J. PATLIABON as
untrue and mammy= YALU. Mr. Patterson
has been in the Legislature, and always dis
charged his duty faithfully. His record is such
that he is entitled to the support of every LOYAL
user, and he who supports such a man for
Congress as Wm. H. Miller, cannot be consid
ered anything less than a sympathizer with the
The only question asked by the people of this
district is, is JOHN J. PAWN:COON • LOYAL AND
fIOOD IINION HAN ? As such he is supported.
Let courts determine private transactions, and
we fear Mr. Fenn will have his hands full, but
that is his and not our business.
The fact that these bills are circulated two or
three days prior to the election, is proof suffi
cient that they are false, and will remind our
readers of the celebrated Coffin Handbills issu
ed more than twenty years since by our ene
mies. These bills were printed at a looofoco
printing office, in this city, and are circulated
by Breckenridge locofocos. That is sufficient
or every intelligent voter of Dauphin county.
They are well acquainted with these old Boor
backs issued before the election, and they will
have no effect upon their votes. Every loyal
Democrat and Republican will vote for John J.
Patterson, the loyal candidate in the 14th
congressional District. Mark our prediction.:-
THE LAST PLEA OF TRAIMRS.
THE TORY ORGAN EXECUTING ITS OWN REQUIEM
The Tory Organ, this morning, is burdened
with what it doubtless considers will be a
crusher to those who have been exposing and
detesting its plane to embarrass the efforts of
loyal men to crush rebellion, and thus increase
the opportunities of traitors effectually to de
stroy the government. As a specimen of this
document, we make such extracts from its
sentiments, as were doubtless intended to effect
the great object to which we allude, that our
readers may fully understand the means used
by the Tory Organ in this campaign. Thus for
instance, it declares, in order
o es et e is o
" that the Constitution be not violated by any
unholy hand—that the rich heritage of liberty
which you received from your fathers, shall be
transmitted unimpaired to your children. For
this throttle the monster of abolitionism, which
dares to rear its hideous head. Restore the
government to the purity in which patriots left
The purity in which the patriots who are now
at the head of the government, found it, was
with the treasury depleted, forts and arsenals
seised, the army and navy full of traitors, the
Union threatened with destruction by states
which had already seceded, and a gigantic
rebellion organized, with an immense army in
full motion for the invasion of the north. All
this was the work of a Democratic administration, and
that the government may be restored to the
hands of such men as Floyd, Cobb, Bigler, En
chanan and their associates, - the Tory Organim;
labored and is now laboring with desperation.
Do the people desire such a restoration t In the
following the organ invites its own condemna
The manes of the slaughtered dead stalk un
avenged among you, and invoke your justice
on their murderers ! The living and the dead
alike implore you to remember the price paid
by your revolutionary ancestors for the Union
and freedom you enjoyed.
While every Democrat is not a traitor, and
while thousands of honest and patriotic Demo
'crate will support the loyal candidates, whose
names appear at the head of our columns, we
boldly declare that every traitor in the land
voted for Jamas Buchanan, and is a Democrat
of the school to which John 0. Breckenridge
now belongs. According to the ethics and the
logic, then, of the Tory Organ, the slaughtered
dead will be tmavenged as long as this Demo
cratic party is in existence. Let the voter re
member this great fact, and deposit his ballot
against such men as Roumfort, Heck and Miller,
with their associates in political crime, put forth
as candidates in this crisis, against the Gov
ernment. These men, by their sturdy and per
&stunt defences of slavery, have assumed the
vindication and encouragement of those whe
slaughtered our brethren. This encouragement
has been extended so far as to induce the rebels
to repeat their attempts to carry the war into
Pennsylvania. That war is at our doors. A
rebel foe is now treading the soil of the state ;
and it is well attested by those who should
know, that this invasion was partly attempted in the
hope that Gov. Curtin would once more arm, the en
ergy of the state, by manswaing soldiers to the rum,
and thus take from the limits oe the Commonwealth
thousands of loyal votes. BY THIS Klaus THE
DOUGH/AC= OF PENNSYLVANIA HOPED TO CARRY
THE ELECTION IN FAVOR OP A COMPROMISE WITH
111BASION, AND THOB EFFECT A RESTORATION OP THE
UNION TO TER CONTROL ON TRAITORS
We might go on quoting from this proclama
tion of treason, but the extracts we have given
are sufficient to convince the reader of the ob
ject of the Tory Organ. The party which it
endorses represents slavery, and slavery is the
rebellion. In order that this institution may
be preserved, all other interests, all other hopes,
all other enterprises, must be sacrificed. Under
the protection of the Constitution, the worst
crimes of slavery have been enacted—and now,
with that sacred instrument of human rights in
their bands, the allies of slavery are preparing
for the success of rebellion by the defeat of the
loyal men of the north at the ballot-box. It is
a last effort at falsehood, detraction and vitu
peration, and like the present invasion of the
State of Pennsylvania, by the rebel foe, it is
bound to fail.
11:141 5 14t•1itte1441
The last word has long since been spoken,
and it is scarcely possible that loyal men need
any argument to bind them closer to the coun
try in this the hour of its peril. But a word
seems to be necessary and proper in reference to
those who still may hesitate, and as the rebel
foe is to-day ravaging the fields of Pennsylvania
we offer this word, that the people may fully
understand the magnitude of the crisis. There
ALL WHO DESIRE TO SEE THE REBEL
INVADER EXTEND HIS RAVAGES TO
EVERY ACRE IN DAUPHIN COUNTY, LET
THEM VOTE FOR WILLIAM H. MILLER.
ALL WHO DESIRE TO SEE HIS HOME

TION, AND FAMINE CURSE THE STATE OF
PENNSYLVANIA, LET THEM VOTE FOR
WILLIAM H. MILLER.
ALL WHO DESIRE TO HAVE THE CAPI
TAL OF THE STATE HELD BY A REBEL
FORCE, LET THEM VOTE FOR ROUMFORT
The terrible effect which the election of these
men would have on the domestic security, so
cial peace, general order and business prosper
ity, is already being exhibited by the fact that
a rebel foe hi even now in possession of one of
our wealthiest and most Important border
This last invasion was made on the encour
agement derived from the speeches of such men .
as Miller and Roumfort, and the editorial which
daily appears in the Tory Organ ; but the rebels
were too anxious, and appeared rather soon.—
They Imagined that the election had been held
in this state, and on the assurances which they
have received from the Tory Organ, and such
men as Miller and Heck, they believed that
a welcome was in store for them from the tri
umphant candidates—of their old allies and
present friendly sympathisers.

is left for those who were in doubt as to the de
signs and intentions of the Miller—Rou,mfort
clique, to discover where the danger is concen
trated. A vote for the loyal ticket will change
the policy of the rebels, and oefeat the plans of
These are facts, and we want , the people to
remember and act upon their importance.
The Tory Organ of yesterday, makes a cow
ardly attack on our present efficient District
Attorney, A. J. Herr, Esq., in order to elevate
the Breckenridge candidate for the same office,
by asserting that A. J. Herr, Esq., marched
with the militia to Chambersburg, and then
left the ranks. This is a wilful and malicious
falsehood. Mr. Herr did march as a private to
Chambersburg, and after spending some time
in camp, he was detailed for other duty by
Gen. Wright, who was his superior officer, and
in that capacity he rendered important servi
ces. He went with Gen. Wright to Rogers
town, Md., in the very first train that entered
the town after the rebels had left, and there
continued to perform the duties assigned him.
He was in advance of his regiment at Hagers
town two days, and did not return until the
entire force had been ordered back. These are
facts which cannot be controverted. His op
ponent, Mr. Auchniuty, was all this time in
camp at Chambersburg, some thirty miles in
the rear of the regiment, to which Mr. Herr
belonged. It is not necessary to speak of the
capacity of these two candidat% for District
Attorney. Every loyal citizen of Dauphin coun
ty knows that Mr. Herr is perfectly competent
to discharge the responsible duties of District
Attorney, and every legal gentleman will also
testify that his opponent, Mr. Auchmuty, is
incompetent to fill the same position. The
people will elect Mr. Herr by such a sweeping
majority on Tuesday next, that Mr. Anchmuty
will not be heard from for the next ten years,
except it be in a Breckenridge Tory Convention
to nominate such worthies as himself and Dr.
It would be strange, indeed, and inexpreest
bly mortifying, if Pennsylvania should succumb
to thi Hughes Democracy. And yet this is
possible—only, however, in the event of crimi
nal apathy on the part of the loyal men of the
State. A large majority of the people desire
the election of the Union caoldates for state,
district and county offices, but there is danger
that they will not all vote to effect what they
desire, because they will not all see that their
individual votes are necessary to secure success.
If this feeling ahall.be general it will be fatal ;
for the tory sympathisers are already organ
izing their forces with a minute etlioleecy which
indicates a determination to leave nothing un
done to elect their ticket.
In our city, every ward is already undergoing
a thorough organization. Clubs are being
formed, canvassers are busy, large funds are
being collected, and every man who can be
found willing to work is assigned his place in
the grand army of workers. And what -is true
of this city is true, to a greater or less degree,
in every part of thestate.
These efforts must be met. Pesnaylvania must
not be lost. Such a result would be more disas
trous than the loss of a battle. It would infuse
new hope and life into the drooping and de
sponding ranks of the rebels, and carry sorrow
and mourning Into every loyal household in
FRIENDS i We have, for the next three days,
duties to discharge equally important with
those assumed by those of our heroic brethren
on the battle-field. If they are properly dis
charged, a blow will be struck for the Union
not less important than the victory just achiev
ed by the heroes of Corinth.
There is a sweet game going on among the
Democracy in Dauphin county. It is nothing
more nor ling than to cheat their own friends.
Bill Miller is to be sacrificed, to advance the
prospects of Gen. Roumfort. Roumfort has a
good many ardent friends. So has Miller. The
party has no hope of electing Miller, because
the district is too strong for him ; but they
think, by cheating Miller, they can possibly
elect Roumfort: Therefore, they intend to
trade off Miller In this county in this way
They will say to a Republican, now you care
more to elect a Congressman than you do to
elect a member of the State House of Repre
sentatives—and, if you'll vote for Roumfort
for member,. I'll vote for Patterson for Con
gress. This to a Republican looks very plausi
ble. Of course every Republican would rather
have himself properly represented in Congress
than in the Legislature, because the real power
of the Government is in Congress.
We advise every Republican, however, against
listening to any such overtures. If we stick to
our integrity, we can beat them in the county
and the district also. Yon need not make any
bargains. Miller and Roumfort will both be
beaten if you only stick to your integrity.
What is going to result out of this base pro
position is just this : To make the Democracy
more infamous among its own supporters ; and
to show them that there is the basest treachery
within their own ranks.
Who does not know that the Breckenridge
Democrats are traitors. Bill Miller war a
Douglas man. But doese he honestly this
day entertain true loyal sealimenti--as Doug
las did to the hour of his decease ? This is
the question now for loyal men to answer.—
The men who think with Roumfort distrust
Miller—therefore, the infamous bargain.—
Friends of Miller, look out—yon' 11 be sold.
A GMAT DIAL SAID Ix A FiW Wow:ie.—At
the monster meeting of , the National Union
Party, held at National Hall, in the city of
Philadelphia, on Wednesday evening last, some
ponderous truths were.uttered by Morton
McMichael, Esq.,' in very'few words. " While
Our sons and brothers are fighting Stonewall
Jackson," said he, "we should be doing our
part in fighting the gang led by Frank Hughes.
The man who would hurl Pennsylvania over

Confederacy, is a man whom: every patriot

A COWARDLY ATTACK.
DON T BE DECEIVED
TAXES OR NO TAXES!
A heavy debt is already upon the Nation,
and it is accumulating every day. Each mi
unto adds thousands to it. What are we to
do ? How can we escape from the impending
and threatening burdens ? There is but one
way. So end the war as to make those who brought
it about, pay for their crime. This is called "Con
fiscation." No matter what it is called, out of
the means of the Rebels and Traitors, we must
pay all the costs and expenses of this unholy
rebellion. If this is done, the loyal people of
the North will not be burdened long. Taxes
will be of short duration. Who objects to this?
The Breckatridgera of the Borth, and the Traitors of
the South 1 Who are in favor of it? All loyal
men everywhere who do not desire to die, leav
ing as an inheritance to their children nothing
but a load of public debt. If the Government
is sustained by the people at the ballot box do
Tuesday next, this policy will be pursued. If
it is not sustained, it will be rejected. If it is
sustained, the rebellion will be virtually ended.
If not sustained, years more of warfare will be
the result. At the Ballot Box, then, is the
great battle to be fought. Reader, how are
you going to fight—for yourself and children,
or for the Rebels, and theirs ? There is no half
way position. Fight on one side you must, if
you vote at all. If you do not vote, it will count
one on the side of the Rebellion.
WHAT 2HEY LEAN UPON.
What little hope the friends of Miller have
of his election, is based upon the fact that a
very large majority of those who have gone to
the war since the last election, are the earnest
and uncompromising friends of the Union.—
They sv , !uld not vote for Miller if at home.
Their absence is taken as so many votes gain
ed. But there are still enough left tD crush
secessionism at home, while these brave men
are fighting elsewhere for the old flag. As loy
al men are depositing their votes for Patterson,
to the defeat and the disgrace of Miller and his
upholders, loyal soldiers will be dispersing trai
tor armies, to the defeat and disgrace of those
who uphold rebellion.
There is danger that the work of political
organization will be neglected. There is just
now ao much to divert and absorb the public
mind, that it will be difficult to secure the
needed attention to mere political work. And
yet this is indispensable to success—not merely
to the sumo of the nominees of a party, but to
the success of a fundamental principle. The
defeat of the Union cause on Tuesday next,would
put back tte dill of Freedom many years. Let
us organize to avert such a calamity.
UNION VS. SECESSION-PATTERSON VS.
Let every voter who desires to have the
Union perpetuated and .the rebellion crushed
out of existence, deposit his ballot for John J.
Patterson. Those who desire to strengthen the
arm of rebellion, and bring into questionable
repute the loyalty of Pennsylvania, will vote of
course for the dough-face tory candidate, Wm.
H. Miller, simply because he is opposed to the
reguiar Union candidates.
THAT BEST WORKERS ARE OFF TO TEE
Multitudes of those upon whom the local
work of political organisation has hitherto fal
len, are now on the tented field. What they
have hitherto done so well must now be done
by others, Every tree man at home should
see to it tbat the cause of Justice, Equality and
Freedom shall lose nothing in organization in .
Pennsylvania by the absence of the brave men
G. DAWSON Commair, the Union candidate
for the legislature in Lebanon county, is the
fairest illustration of the good old principle of the
office seeking the man, that we have presented
in any of the candidates in the entire state, we
care not with what party the comparison is
attempted.' Nothing but the highest sense of
patriotisin could have tempted such a man to
stand the contest of a political campaign.—
While exercising a vast influence in his locali
ty, occupying too a position of great responsi
bility as the conductor of an immense business,
in which thousands of dollars are disbursed
weekly, and which offers employment to hun
dreds of men—office or legislative honor could
have no attraction to such a man, beyond the
noble purpose of serving bill country at a time
when the services and devotion of every good
man are needed. We look to the election of
Mr. Coleman as the success of a great cause,
and shall also look to his triumph in the Legis
lature as the inauguration of a new era in

This paragraph preaches direct opposition to

It would not do only to give secret encourage

Dr. John Ring, of Pittsburg, has been ap
pointed as the successor of Dr. Smith, and en
ters on the performance of the important duties
of his position immediately. Dr. King has
been identified with the military organization
of the state, from the calling out of the three
months' men. He was made Division Surgeon
of the Reserve Corps, until that splendid body
of men_ went into service, when he was ap
pointed surgeon of a regiment, and afterwards,
by the manner in which he discharged his du
ties, and the splendid ability which he dis
played on all occasions when his regiment
needed his care and attention, he was made a
Brigade Surgeon. From this position, with the
full consent of the War Department, he has
been transferred to that of the Surgeon General
of Pennsylvania. Certainly no better man or
abler physician could have been selected for
the position. To talents of the highest order,
Surgeon General King joins an enthusiasm in

It was ordered in position to attack, and a
strong reconnoissance directed at 4 o'clock. I
received a request from Gen. BECook for rein
forcements, and learned that the left had been
seriously engaged for several hours, and that
the right and left of that corps were being
turned and severely pressed. Reinforcements
were immediately sent forward from the centre;
orders were also sent to the right column, under
Gen. Crittenden, which was Advancing by the
Lebanon road to push forward and attack the
enemy's left, but it was impossible for it to get
into position in time to produce any decisive re
sults. The action continued until dark. Sharp
fighting also occurred in no centre; the enemy
was everywhere repulsed, but not without some
momentary advantages on the left; the several
corps were put in position during the night
and moved,to attack at six oclock this morn
ing. Some skirmishing occurred with the
enemy's rear guard; the main body has fallen
back in the direction of Harrodsburg.
I have no accurate report of our loss yet, and
is probably pretty heavy, including valuable
officers. Generals Jackson and Terrill, I regret
to say, are among the number of killed

received. The city continues in remarkable
good health. Brigadier General Arnold, by
order of General Batler, has assumed the com
mand of all the military forces at New Orleans
The Picayune of the 28th ult. says : Rumors
of an unpleasant character reached us from the
negroes on the plantation below the city. The
steamboat Iberville had been fired into while
passing a plantation, three miles below Bayou
Gorda, from a battery of four rifled cannon.—
Some fifty shots were fired, killing one man and
a horse on board, but the boat escaped.
The New Orleans Picayune of the let inst.
says : The rumored rising of three hundred
negroes on the plantation below the city was
not attended by all the anticipated circum
stances of atrocity. A few white men were at
tacked and beaten, but we did not learn that
any of them were killed.
Most of the runaways got up to the city.
