At a period, when the hot shot and bombs were falling thick and
fast around the gallant band who were defending their country's
honor in Fort Sumter, Gov. Curtin had sent into the Legislature
of the State, then in session, a message suggesting the better or
ganization of the militia, and asking for an appropriation of five
hundred thousand dollars to place the state on a war footing. When
,proposing to make this appropriation came before the
Legislature, Dr. Heck voted against it, and thus practically de
clared his disregard of all that aimed at the defence of our homes and
the preservation of our liberties.
4c., &c., &c
The bill as it passed, can be found e in the last year's volume of
the laws of the state, page 229—and the proceedings attending its
passage in the House, in the Journal of 1861, page 957. We ex

Freemen of Dauphin county ! Soldiers! who marched at the first
call of danger to the defence of the capital of your country, and
who still rest upon your arms night and day around the limits
of that capital, are you ready to vote for a man who so lightly es
timated the honor ofyoar country and the lives:of its defenders? Dr.
Heck is one of the old Breckenridge Democrats who sympathized
and still sympathize with and confide in the course of the traitor
Breckenridge, and showed his attachment for those who are at the
head of this rebellion by refusing to make an appropriation to arm
the great state of Pennsylvania to aid their overthrow and its
suppression. This man is again before you, and again solicits
your vote that he may again disgrace the halls of legislation with
his presence and his conduct. He desires to be returned that he
may aid in embarrassing the future efforts of our noble old com
monwealth in assisting to redeem the land from rebellion by enforc
ing the laws and vindicating the federal authority. No patriot, no
brave, loyal lover of his country can vote for Dr. Heck.
Freemen, remember that this is the record of Dr. Heck whilst he was in the Le
gislature. Let us now examine his action at a later period.
On the 7th day of August, 1862, the Democratic County Convention met at the
Court Housel in this city, for the purpose of nominating a tioket. Dr. LEWIS
HECK was a delegate to that Convention, and assisted in nominating himself as a
candidate for the Legislature. We copy the following from the Patriot and Union
of August 8, 1862, viz :
~ Dr. HECK moved that the resolutions passed by the Democratic State Conven
ion on the 4th of Jnly be adopted by this Convention.
The reading of the resolutions was called for, and after reading of which they
were adopted amid applause."
The resolutions and nominations of that Convention have thus been fairly and
openly approved by Dr. HECK, and we give him all due credit for his action in
having them adopted. He stands therefore squarely up to the platform which the
friends of the traitor John C. Breckenridge advocated in this State.
The candidates nominated by that convention are also the avowed enemies of the
country. Isaac Slenker and James P. Barr, for Auditor and Surveyor General, are
both on the record as the abettors of rebellion. Slenker seconded the efforts of
Buchanan to steal or purchase Cuba.---and he was also in favor and would now es
tablish, if he had the power, the slave trade in every port of the Union. Barr is
known to have so far defended treason as to have incurred the wrath and run the dan-
ger of a halter at Pittsburg.
Such is the record and such the company in which we find Dr. Hick
First, We find him•voting against arming the State
Second, We discover him in a Convention called to endorse the proceedings of
those who openly oppose the National Government.
Third, He refuted to Tote looney to pay those who were willing to defend the
honor and glory of the Oommouwealth.

A Bold Scheme of the Breokenridgers
THE REBEL RAID AT CHAMBIEBBIIRO
Our readers are already aware chat JOHN
Humes, a nephew and late partner of Francis
W. Hughes, chairman of the Traitor State Com
mittee, is fighting under the rebel flag at the
present day, and that he commanded a rebel
battery at the battles in Maryland less than a
month since. This man John Hughes is well
versed in politics of this State. He himself
was a candidate for Congress in Schuylkill and
Northumberland counties two years since ; and
a large number of shrewd men have a strong
inclination to believe that the whole rebel raid
on Chambersburg was planned by these two
It is well kno7n to them that if our borders
were seriously threatened by invasion from the
rebels, that our patriotic Governor would call
out the strong armed soldiers of the State to
repel that raid, and that a military force of
11177 THOUSAND could be raised in less time.
than it would take to transport them. If the
Governor had called the militia from the State
for that purpose, none but the Breckenridgers
would have staid at Borne to vote to-morrow,
and by this means they would have carried the
This audacious scheme of the traitors has been
happily frustrated by Gen. McClellan, who has
taken the matter promptly in charge, and we
expect confidently to hear that he has captured
the whole party engaged in this bold and auda
cious raid ere this paper reaches them. We
know that he is after and confidently expects
to capture them.
We hope that the true friends of the Union
will use every effort to make the -majority
against the Traitor Ticket as large as possible.
Let not a man fall behind—this is no time to
talk about men. A defeat to the traitors at the
palls is one of the sure means of resisting a raid
on our borders by the rebels.
On the return of the Chairman of the Breck
enridge County Committee, Dr. Hack made a
kurrietWirip4ei Silo-upper end, no doirtft-for,the
purpose of imparting new fabsshooda to the
leaders for the purpose of circulation on the
day of the election. The lest batch of lying
bills and tales told by the molly crew assem
bled in the upper end, has not only made us
many votes, but aroused our friends to such au
extent that every man will come to the polls.
The stories told about taxing wives, dogs, real
estate, baggatelle tables, &Lc.; are utterly explo
ded and the effect will surprise traitors on
We ask, again, can any Union man, wholloves
his country, the land that gives him happiness
and protection, vote for such men as compose
the ticket presented to the people of Dauphin
This id not the time to cavil about the indi
viduals composing the Union ticket. We are
now working for the preservation of the gov
ernment, and he that acts and talka otherwise,
is not with us. We care nothing for men and
we shall vote for any true, good Union man in
preference to the best sympathizer with traitors
Qur ticket is composed of good, sober and
industrious men who will represent the wishes
of the Union men faithfully, while some of the
candidateeou the Breckenridge ticket are living
evidence to the contrary.
The rebels left that borough about nine
o'clock on Saturday morning, in a hurried
manner, fearing that our forces would be after
them. They violated their given pledges not
to disturb private property. They entered a
shoe store and took about two hundred dollars
worth of goods, and entered private houses
just as they pleased. The cashier of the bank
was held as a prisoner during Friday night and
compelled to open the vaults of the bank, but
the bank officers had been more vigilant than
others and removed all the valuables—they had
to leave the premises without plunder. In
addition to this some five hundred horses were
stolen from the citizens, and before they left
all the property of the Cumberland Valley rail
road was destroyed by fire, consisting of the
machine ahops, a large house used for tne ticket,
telegraph and other offices of the company,
and also as the residence of the Superintnedent,
Mr. Lull. The warehouses of Messrs. Wunder
lich & Bleeds were also destroyed. In these
building was stored a large amount of &muni
tion, captured from the rebels a short time be
fore the battle near Sharpsburg. While the
fire was raging the shells exploded and flew
through the town but we heard of no accidents
by them. The damage done to the citizens and
Cumberland Valley Railroad, must amount to
a large sum, and we must °confess, that if the
dtizens had used a little more energy their
houses at least might have been saved.
We also learn that some fifteen hundred gov
ernment muskets were gent to them some time
ago but that the citizens of that borough had
not energy enough to take them and the bone',
hence they were burnt. • If these muskets had
been properly used and the citizens drilled as
they should hays done, they might hero rode!

ted any cavalry force. The number of rebels
at Chambersburg is variously estimated; some
say that but eight hundred entered the town
and that another force joined them yesterday
when they left, until it was estimated from two
thousand to twenty-five hundred strong.
The rebels left in the direction of Gettysburg,
but when they got within five miles of the
town, the citizens made some show of resist
ance by capturing one of the advance guard,
and sending him on to this city as a prisoner•
This had a good effect, BO doubt, as the rebels

from the farmers all their horses.
Pickets were thrown out within three miles

From official dispatches received here last

escaping. They crossed the Potomac near the
mouth of the Monocacy, having made a march
of ninety miles in twenty-four hours. Gen.
Pleasanton's forces arrived at the crossing just
as they had finished, and engiged their artil

force marched seventy-eight miles during the
last twenty-four hours.

Panaourma, Oct. 11, 1862
To Gro. BYAGNRR, Esq.:—
We have the satisfaction of telling the friends
of the Union throughout the state that within
the past week there has been the most astonish
ing change in the public mind and feeling in
this section of the state, which was ever known
to occur in the same space of time. Where
there was formerly apathy and indifference as
to the result of the coming election there is
now the utmost enthusiasm and nothing seems
to be talked of and thought of in the work
shops and factories, offices and oonnting rooms
and public places, except the duty every man
has to perform in defence of his government
and country at the ballot box and the invasion
of the state has intensified their feeling.
The workmen employed in our most exten
sive factories, workshops and ship yards have
met together and resolved that they consider
the contest not one of a political nature at all
but a question of Government or no Govern
meat, and almost to a man have ranged them
selves on the side of the Government and the
