Friday Afternoon, October 24, 1.862.
The Patriot and Union contains a long article,
this morning, which purports to present quota
tions from some of the Republican press of the
country, for the purpose of proving that the ad
ministration of Abraham Lincoln, by its self
abnegations, has forfeited the respect of the
party which placed it in power, as well as be
come unworthy of the confidence of the nation
which it represents. Of course we have noth
ing to do with such sophistries and false
hoods. These carry their worth with them
wherever they go, and cannot have any in
finance beyond the party which they are con
coctsd to please. But to show how fairly it re
presents the Republican press, we instance the
quotation which it presents from the TIMOR/LPN
of Wednesday last. As the quotation appears
in the Patriot it reads thus :
The government, in the free states, is no longer a
symbol of power—at least it is no longer regarded
with the respect and the confidence which were its sup
port and shield six months ago.
And right on, in the same paragraph,the other
very emphatic words occur. But these did
not suit the Patriot. The object was to shove
the odium from its own shoolde,s to that of the
government, by making it appear that the peo
ple bad lost confidence in the administration,
when our object was to prove that such sheets
as the Patriot were increasing the opposition and
disloyalty which have disgraced them ever since
their political allies and confident* organized a
rebellion to destroy free institutions. We re
peat the connection in the paragraph from
which the Patriot quotes, as much to expose its
mendacity and meanness as to reiterate our
opinion of itself and its cotemporaries in polit
ical desperation :
IF ANY HAN DOIIDIE THIS LNI HIM PERUSE THE
NEWSPAPER ORGANS OF TUE PART! THAT HAS SET
ITSELF UP AS THE OPPONENTS OP THIS GOVERNMENT.
LET TOTAL MEN NOTE AND PONDER Tux DAILY
GRowiNa SENTIMENTS OF THIS OPPOSITION, AND IF
THE FACT DOES NOT STRIKE TERROR TO THE PEOPLE
WHO ASE SOLICITOUS FOR THE WHET OF THE'GOT•
ERITHENT, THEN HAS 11AGAED FOR IT DIMINISHED
WHIRL WE HAVE ONLY A RIGHT TO LOOM FOR ITS
LAST HOPES OF SAFETY.
Thus, if the quotations hi this morning's Patriot
are all of a character similar in fairness with the
matter it Ebrints from thentsciamt,the authori
ties which it seeks to use for the condemnation of
the government, are in fact a withering rebuke
of its own despicable course, instead of being a
reflection on the President.
COMMENDABLE AND CHARACTERISTIC.
The Pittsburg Gazette of yesterday prints the
following dispatch which was received by the
Assistaut Adjutant General in that city, from
the Governor of Pennsylvania. The dispatch
is in this language :
HAIIREISBUILG, Oct. 22, 1862
Bon. Thome M. Moore: Are the drafted men
made comfortable as they come in ? Do you
need any assistance in caring for them? An
swer by teli•graph. A. G. CIIRTLN.
Those who know Gov. Curtin will read the
dispatch with the reflection that, it is charac
teristic 14 the man. But with the recognition of
the newspaper press it requires more than a pas
sing notice. It requires to be printed in every
journal of the state, as an example to those far
down in the grade of authority, who exercise a
petty power over the volunteer or the drafted
men, to manifest file same consideration for
those under their command, as is thus liberal
ly and generously displayed by theCornmander
in.flhief. There has been too much dispoiltion
to treat the private soldier as a brute. To in
suit and oppress him while under arms or in
the camp, with the excuse that such is disci
pline—and to degrade and weary, chafe and
humiliate him while in the hospital, with the
other excuse that it is regulation. Governor Our•
tin puts his face against such conduct in the
spirit of the dispatch we have just quoted, and ha
these data that try both the souls and patience
of men, it is pleasant to see such eViderice of
care awd kindness of heart as these two brief
Of all who have gone into the service of thCir
country, none are deserving of more tender
care than these drafted men. Many of them
have been obliged to leave helpless and depen
dent families, the care of whom kept them at
home while others were volunteering ; and
now, in obedience to the inexorable call of the
corintry, they must leave them, however heart
breaking it may- be to do so. We are very
glad, therefore, to sea that the Governor is
ready to do all that he can to cheer them In
this day of sore trial. May his example be fol
lowed by every officer who is placed over them.
Let no officer utter a word or do an act that
may be regarded as tyrannical or humiliating to
the drafted men. They are deserving of all
the consideration which th best men have
received on entering the army, and we trait
that for the helpless families of such as the*
every effort will be made to secure their com
fort during the dreary winter that is already
beginning to blow its chill frosts into the facie
of the poor.

THE SOLDIER A RIGHT DO VOTE?
In deoying the franchise to the soldier, and
in doggedly and passionately resisting the
right whenever and wherever the defender of the
honor and glory and safety of the country, at
tempted its exercise, the leaders of the Demo
cratic party have made a record for themselves
on which they will receive the withering and .
indignant condemnation of the men whom
they have outraged and attempted to degrade.
That record will be a blister on the forehead of
Locofocoism as long as it requires a strong arm
to defend the honor and fame of the Govern
ment. It will prove the baseness of the men
as well as the meanness used to revive the or
ganization of Democracyo ; and when the sol
dier returns to the home which he has been de
fending with hie richest blood, he will then
ask on what principle and by which organiza
tion, he was made a slave while thus absent.
As well might the men who decreed this dis
franchisement, dissolve the ties which bind
the soldier to his family, as pronounce him un
fit and undeserving to maintain his connection
with his country by the right which binds him
to it through the ballot box.
—We trust that this subject will be steadily
agitated, and fairly kept before the people, un
til justice is done the soldier, as well as meted
out to those who have thus degraded him be
fore the world. It is a subject which the Re
publican press should agitate, as one claiming
their highest efforts; and we are pleased,to no
tice that such is the disposition of our •cotem
poraries. The Altoona Ilibuns of the 23d inst.
takes up the matter, and after referring to the
efforts of the Democratic leaders in Its own vi
cinage in denying the !franchise - to the soldier,
"What the Supreme Court have to do with
determing who is entitled to a seat in Congress
or the State Legislature, these gentlemen may
understand, but we do not. It is enough for
us to know they favor the disfranchisement of
the soldier. Practically it may not be a mat
ter of much moment at this time, as it may
not change the result. But we intend to keep
a record of the course pursued by these office
seekers. When a decision of the Supreme
Court is favorable to their views, they bolster
ously clamor the law mist be sustained. When
they don't like it, they bid it defiance. In
General Jackson's time, the Supreme Court of
the United States decided that a National Bank
was unconstitutional. The Democracy revolt
ed against that decision ; and General Jackion
himself asserted that he, as President, would
not hold it so, even though the Supreme Court
unanimously so decided. He vetoed the Chan
ter for a National Bank on that ground, and
was largely sustained by the people. The plain
truth is simply this: these politicians aro for
sustaining decisions when they like them, and
against them when they don't. The people will
not consent to take away from the soldier,
who, absent from the comforts of home at a
nominal consideration, is bravely battling for
his country and her institutions, any privilege,
which he would have if at home. The
man who denies them this right, because he
fears his party candidate could not succeed
without, will find Jordan a harder road to
travel than the poet ever semi of, or traveller
LOCO.FOCOLSM IN ITS TRUE LIGHT.
The proceedings in the contested election ease
in Philadelphia, involving the right to serc;se
the duties of Sheriff in that county, exhibit in
a clearer light the proclivities of the leading
men who call themselves "Democrats," than
they could be presented if they were discussed
for a year. Crime and corruption are always
their own best exponents. They can better
exhibit their own hideousness than they can be
depicted by pencil or described by the pen. In
this case, the facts and the testimony have all
been against the leaders of locofoceism. The
decent men of that party have protested against
Mr. Ewing holding on to the power and eiaoiu
meats of the position of Sheriff. His best friends
have urged him to give up a place to which be
had no shadow of ' right. Ewing steadily re
fused to do this. He has gone farther than all
this, by violently refusing to retire after the
Courts of the county of Philadelphia had de
cided that he was perpetrating a fraud by longer
exercising authority as Sheriff of that county.
Still Mr Ewing persists in his claim,and thiciugh
his counsel, has gone before the Supreme Court,
asking that his frauds be acknowledged by con
tinuing him in a position to which a majority of
the people had elected another man.
The technicalities'involved in this case, are
neither important or interesting to the people.
Such business is alone worthy of the consider*.
tion of the lawyers who are ready to undertake
any dirty work for a fee. The clear fact of fraud
is alone what interests the masses, and on this
fraud the Democracy of Philadelphia rest their
claim of having elected a sheriff of that corm*.
In the face of the tlecision of a high tribunal,
and insisting on wrong with incontestible and
clear evidence awdrust them, these men still
persist in their crimes, and insult the cones by
asking judicial interposition in their belief, dist
they may be confirmed in their efforts to set 'at
naught the preference of the people.
The fact in the sheriffs; contested electirim
case In Philadelphia, is the fact in the career of
locofocoistzt in this state. Where elections can
not be carried fairly in their favor they are Ca
rried by falsehood, and where a falsehood
not serve their purpose of success, an open (mad
is as boldly resorted to as the highwiyman
sorts to his blade to complete the outrage on l a
pilfered victim. Contending with such mai,
honest people must conclude to battle fiertely
or surrender at discretion.
Havourriostarr.—There are evident symP.
toms of an increasing revolutionary spirt at
the north. Washington letter writers speak
boldly of this feeling at the capital, and :state

"militiary dictator" are frequently heard fa

ed as a possible contingency.—Richstorid lf7tig.
Such is the comment of the secessionists On
the count which is now being pursued by the
Democracy. The Whig correctly regards the

Pennoptunria Malty itelegtoo. fribay Vternoin. October 24, 1862
TILE EXTRACT we give below could be distin
guished with difficulty, if at all, from an edito
rial in any of the organs which Frank Hughes
so ably conducted during the late election, and
sounds extremely like the treason which usual
ly issues from the Patriot. Yet it is the closing
part of a letter from the rebel General Beaure
gard, bearing date at "Cullum Spring, Bladen,
Ala., July 28th, 1862," and is addressed to his
rebel associate in arms, Gen. Br gg. The letter,
which was among others found in a rebel mail
captured hi Tennessee by Gen. Buell, was pure
ly confidential and official, giving directions to
Bragg how. to conduct the campaign from Tu
pello against Gen. Haneck at Corinth. The
rebel writer talks about the " Constitutitlenal
rights" of rebel% as glibly as a full fledged
Valiendighamer. Though he proposes to apply
the name " Abolitionists " to the " Yankees,"
it is evident that the suggestion is especially
designed to result in effects on Western soldiers.
We are not aware that the traitor Beauregard
has ever issued the " general order" he pro
posed to issue; n ever theless,the Breckenridge organs
and leaders are acting up to that order in advance,
by stigmatizing every man who supports the
policy of the government 'for the suppression
of the rebellion, as an "Abolitionist." Is there
not a strinking identity in the arguments and
agencies employed ley the Vallandigham party
and the traitors of the south ?
" By the way, I think we ought, hereafter,
in our offidal papers, to call the "Yankees"
"Abolitionists," instead of " Federals," for
they now proclaim not only the abolition of
slavery, BUT OF. ALL OUR CONSTITUTIONAL
RIGHTS ; and that name will have a stinging efect
on our western enemies. /intend to issue a general
order on the subject whenever I assume command.
"Sincerely your friend,
"G: T. BEAUREGARD.
"Gen. Braxton Bragg, Com'g Dep. No. 2.
IT is worthy of notice that several of the
Democratic candidates for Congress who suc
ceeded at the late' election in this state, stood
pledged to a cordial support of the administra
tion in the prosecution of the war. Among
these, are Messrs. M'Allister, elected from the
Blair district, and Dennison, from the Susque
hanna. Both would doubtless have been
defeated but for their open committal to Presi
dent Lincoln's policy. •
. a Government Vessel
Last night, a few minutes past 9 o'clock, a
fire was discovered on board the schooner Ele
ner, Capt. D. Townsend, in the employ of the
Government, which was lying at anchor in the
North river, in front of and a short distance
from the Conard Dock. The deck being loaded
with hay, the flames spread with great rapidity,
and in a few moments the vessel was enveloped
in one entire sheet of flame. The fire depart
ment of Jersey City and of the lower districts in
New York, tumid out, but were unable to ren
der any assistance, and for some time no tutor
mation could be gathered as to the name of the
vessel, or whether there was any person on
board. Several small boats from vessels in the
vicinity were seen flying around, and finally
one of them came ashore with the captain, first
and second mates, the steward, and one of the
crew, the latter badly burned about the face,
hands and feet. The injnred man, whose name
is Lewis R. Hickman, was taken to Merceir'e
drug store, in Montgomery street, where hie
wounds were dressed, after which he was con
veyed to the New York Hospital.
When the fire broke out there were nine per
sons on board, consisting of seven persons be
longing to the vessel and two passengers, all of
whom were Abed at the time. There names
were.as foll ' : the after cabin, Capt. D.
Townsend, first mate, James Jones ; second
mate, Benjamin Lovemao, and the steward ;
John Sopers, iu the Mid house adjoining the
gallery, Charles Cavalier, Jossphr °miner, and
Lewis R. Hickman; crew, and Robert Blank and
Frank -, passengers.
As soon as the alarm was given, the captain,
two mates and stewart seized what clothing
they could, and running out, lowered the suiall
bciat from the stern and escaped. One of the
pisserigers rushed out from the midshid house,
but it being surrounded with burning hay, and
the flames leaping high into the air, he gave
way and fell back. Hickman, barefooted and
bareheaded, and but partially dressed, then
rushed past him and dashed through the flames,
and although badly burned and nearly suffo
cated, succeeded in making his way on to the
jib-boom, whence he wss taken in a small
boat. He saw nothing of his four companions,
and there is no doubt but that they perished in
The vessel was in the employ of the Govern
ment, and was to have sailed for Fortress M6n
roe to-day, with 80,000 brick, 500 barrels of
cement, about 800 barrels of_ hay and a quan
tity of coal. The Elener is 279 tons measure

at $12,000, and it Is thought there was no insu.

Courerr.-Some weeks ago a Mrs. Craft, aged
sixty years, reidding in Fayette county, came
to this city and made information setting forth
that an attempt had been made to commit an
outrage upon her by-a negro, and gave a de

had fully identified him as the person commit

related she circumstances of an attempted out

descriptive advertisement of the negro, and the
offer of ;60 reward for his apprehension, togeth

alleged offence. Subsequent :circumstances led
to the suspicion that the whole thing was a
hoax, especially as it was asserted that the
negro had made the improbablustatement that
he had been sent there by Abe Lincoln.

such occurrence had taken place, and several

in the Name and by the Authority
COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,
ANDREW G. CURTIN,
GOVERNOR OF THE SAID COIRMONWEALTR,
Wa:was, It is a good thing to render thanks
unto God for all His mercy and loving kind-
Therefore, I, Annum! G. Cuassnr, Governor
of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, do re
commend that THURSDAY, THE 271 h DAY OF
NOVEMBER NEXT, be set apart by the people
of this Commonwealth, as a day of solemn Prayer
and Thanksgiving to the Almighty :—Giving
Him humble thanks that He has been gracious
ly pleased to protect our free institutions and
Government, and to keep us from sickness and
pestilence—and to cause the earth to bring
forth her increase, so that our garners are
choked with the harvest—and to look so favor
ably on the toll of His children, that industry
has thriven among us and labor had its reward;
and also that He has delivered us from the
hands of our enemies—and filled our officers
and men in the field with a loyal and intrepid
spirit, and given them victory--and that He
has poured out upon us (albeit unworthy) other
great and manifold blessings :
Beseeching Him to help and govern us in His
steadfast fear and love, and to put into our
minds good desires, so that by His continual
help we may have a right judgment in all
And especially praying Him to give to Obria
tian churches grace to hate the thing which is
evil, and to utter the teachings of truth and
righteommess, declaring openly the whole
counsel of God :
And m o st heartily entreating Him to bestow
upon our civil rulers, wisdom and earnestness
In council, and upon our military leaders, zeal
and vigor in action, that the fires of rebellion
may be quenched—that we, being armed with
His defence, may be preserved from all perils,
and that hereafter our people, living in peace
and quietness, may, from generation to genera
tion, reap the abundant fruits of His mercy,
and with joy and thankfulness praise and mag
nify His holy name.
Given under my band and the great seal of the
State, at Harrisburg, this Twentieth day of
October, in the year of our Lord one thousand
eight hundred and sixty-two, and or the
Commonwealth the eighty-seventh.
