Wednesday Afternoon, October 20, 1802.
We have already announced that the Rev. Dr.
Charles A. Hay, minister of the First Lutheran
Church in this city, bad been illegally taken from
his home on Tuesday morning, on the strength
of a telegraphic dispatch from Gen. Wool to Gen.
Wilson, asking the Provost Marshal to secure
Dr. Hay and bring him at once under guard to
his headquarters in Baltimore. In obedience
to this dispatch, Marshal Kleckner arrested
Dr. Hay on Monday evening, placing a guard
inside of his residence, and also one on the
outer door. The Rev. Dr. had been engaged
to perform the funeral services of one of
our oldest and moat respectable ladies, Mrs.
Judge Hummel, on Tuesday morning, but
be managed to send word to Mr. William
IL Kerr, president of the Harrisburg Bank, and
son in-law of the deceased, that he would be
unable to attecid,and that he was held a prisoner.
Mr. Kerr, who is well known to every man
in this city as one of the moirt, upright and
loyal men in the country, made an attempt to
have an interview with Dr. Bay, but he was
not permitted to see him, nor would the guard
accompany him so that be might hear all the
eonversation. Dr. Hay was treated worse than
a criminal guilty of a high offence.
Toe writer of this article saw Dr. Hay but a
few minutes before the cars started, and upon
examination of the paper on which the arrest
was made, it was discovered at once that the
whole proceeding was illegal, since by an ex- 1
press order of the War Department, it has been
ordered that no person should be arrested unless'
by authority from the War Department direct,
or tie Judge Advocate, General Turner.—
Dr. Hay, however, perfectly conscious that no
offence had been commuted, and acting as a loyal
citizen, who would suffer any privation for the
sake of supporting the government, submitted
to this tyrannical proceeding and accompanied
the guard to Baltimore.
Before, however, we give the proceeding bad
before Gen. Wool, we will narrate the offence
which Dr. Hay committed, in the judgment of
the General, and for which he was summoned
hence to answer.
During a late visit to Baltimore he met with
the wife of one of the leading merchants •in
that city, who boastingly told him how those
who openly sympathise with secessionists in Bal
timore were permitted to take sick.rebel prisoners
captured in battle, to their homes, and quarter
them among their friends, and that quite a'
rivalry existed among them to honor the
rebel sick and wounded This, of course, mor
tified Dr. Hay most extremely. It was almost
too much fur a man wbo had devoted day and
night to tee care of the sick Union soldiers,
to hear ; and knowing the lady intimately as
truthful, be left that city with a sad heart,
deploring that it could be possible that seem
Gimlets of Baltimore can nurse the sick rebels
while our own Union soldiers are left to the
tender care of hospital nurses.
Dr. Hay found upon reaching home that, Rev.
Dr. LochmanA highly respectable and loyal cler
gyman of York, had made several applications
to the Surgeon General, asking for the trans
fer of a loyal sick soldier from Camp Curtin
Hospital to the hospital at York, so that his
Mends and relatives might minister to the tick
soldier at home. This reasonable request had
been denied to a loyal man who had been
fighting and bleeding for his country. Feeling
indignant at this contrast between the treat
ment of rebel and loyal soldiers, he wrote the
following card :
EDITOR or TR) TELPORAPH :—I have just re
turned from Baltimore. Whilst there I fell in
with a lady of well-known secession proclivi
ties, who boasted of having brought array from
Fort McHenry, by permission of General Wool,
four of the wounded prisoners lately transferred
from Frederick. I inquired if they were in any
of the Baltimore hospitals. "No;
they are in
the hoods of one FRONDS. A dozen ladies scram
bled for them, but I had already promised them
to others, and they are well cared. for."
Now I wish to call public attention to this
fact, which speaks for itself. Would the same
General allow similar privileges to loyal ladies
in behalf of loyal soldiers f
HARRISBURG, October 24, 1862.
Dr. Hay arrived at Baltimore at one o'clock;
and was ushered at once into the Headquar
ters of. General Wool, After waiting some
thi), the General appeired, seemingly very
Much excited, end after examining several
papers lying on his !able, he accused Dr. Val
with being the writer of different articles pub
'Bribed in the Baltimore American, remarking at
the same time that " they were all a pack of
Dr. Hay replied coolly that he had never
written anything for that paper.
Gen. Wool then remarked that an article bad
been published over his own signature, at the
same time still hunting in great excitement
over his papers, but unable to find the article
in question.
Dr. Hay then stated that be had published
an article in the Harrisburg paper, at the
same time handing him the article cut from the
Gen. Wool took the slip, read it, pacing up
and down the room, and stating that "it was
a pack of lies."
Dr. Hay answered cooly that he was not in
the habit of telling lies.
After this conversation Dr. Hay gave a full
history of the transactions at, Camp Cur
tin, and of his visit to Baltimore, giving the au
thor of the fact that aecersion prisoners had been
taker& from the'fort and quartered among the
sscondonists of Baltizeore.
' Cle *fool stated that he had an (Acid ac• :
count of the transactions at Fort McHenry be
fore him, but insisted that Dr. Hay had been
wrong in stating that 110 bid given per Mission,
to take these secession prhOnere from the Forte
at the sometime not denying that this battbeeil
done by the commander.: of the ;.Fort. Oea'
Wool read from the official report of Gen. Mor
ris concerning the disturbances there, which
corrobcrated,many of the etatements of pr . ,
Hay's informant, and satisfied him that the
General to whom the lady referred was not
General Wool.
Dr. Hay saw after this explanation that the
'deed had not been directly committed by Gen:
Wool, yet it was done under his command, and
be was responsible for it. He told the General
at once that he had no hesitation in saying pub
licly that he had been in error in regard to the
person gninting such permiesion.
This seemed to satisfy the General, who , bad
no doubt heard of some in connection with
he affair; and he thereupon discharged Dr.
Hay without condition.
Ibis illegal arrest and examination has ended
in failing to disprove the fact that some one
under the control of Gen. Wool, had permitted four
secession prisoners to be taken from the fort
and quartered among secessionists in Baltimore,
which privilege has been denied to Union sol
diers. We are therefore glad that an opportunity
has been given to investigate this matter, ! and
we have no doubt, that the illegal arrest nil Dr.
Hay will bring about the discharge of incompe
tent officers (to nee the mildest term,) 'and
arrest abuses in the department of Gen. Wool,
which have grown almost insufferable to lOyal
men. •
The Baltimore papers here not been quieton
this subject, and it seems strange indeed, that
Genl. Wool should find it necessary to arrest
innocent men in the country, when be could
find persons nearer home. The following
extract on the Military management, in Balti
more, we copy from the American of Monday
last :
The Union men of this city know that they are
a power, able, withotd the aid of a bayonet from a
neighboring Slate, to protect themselves and to*put
treason at a discount ; and may not much longer
tolerate the growth of evils so dangerous to
their peace, as the poisonous Upas tree to whose
root the axe should be laid, and to destroy
which the war is beiny waged., . .
It is time, then, that the Government and the
country should know that the, loyal men of this
city will not much longer patiently bear those
grievances, and that they desire and demand such
an adminiatration of affairs here as will, give
them confidence in the discretion and patriotism of
those having military authority in this depai t
Gov. Curtin telegraphed at once, when! he
ascertained the arrest of Dr. Hay, to the War
Department, asking his immediate release.—
Secretary Stanton answered promptly that no
authority bad been given for
.such arrest, and
desired to know by whom it was ordered.—
This shows clearly that the whole responsibility
rests upon Gen. Wool, and that he will have to
sumer for his conduct• to a higher power.
The Administration is not in the least to blame,
as it was done without its knowledge. The
whole matter will be laid before the War De
partment, and somebody discover that,
however they may act the tyrant over a sick
soldier and discharge rebel prisoners, they will
not be permitted to drag loyal and butter men
from their homes with impunity.
A wrong never looks so hideous. ae when the
excitement of its perpetration is over, and'then
among those most appalled at its contempla
tion are its perpetrators. When the victim of
the murderer is cold and stark, the murderer
himself shrieks loudest for its removal from his
vision. In the seine spirit, moved by the same
cowardly fear and stinging conscience, the Patriot
declares that it wilrbilire no more to do with
discussion of ' the wrong by which , the ,horelve
i defenders of the government have bLen ds
franchised, seeking by very poor wit and a weak
attempt at sarcasm, to bury the whole subject
in oblivion. 'But the effort must prove a fail
ure. The tory symplithisers, of whom the
Patriot is the organ, must b ar the responsibility
of the whole business. They disfranchisei the
soldier. They have threatened to make that
disfranchisement effectual, at the risk of steel
and bullets. These were the words. Rather
than the soldier should vote—rather than men
who defend the government at the risk of their
lives—the community are to be invited to ,a
banquet of blood, at which the editors and pro
prietors of the Patriot are to preside. Let every
soldier, the volunteer and the drafted , man, as
he passes along Third street, bear in mind, that
hie disfranchisement and hie denial of a vote'for
State or Congressional officers, is die to the
efforts of the Patriot and Union. Berm weigh
these facts, and look upon that organ as the
author of his political ehame'and
And however the Patriot may attempt tries:a*
the odium of this transaction, it will stick to it
as did the bloody shirt to Name: Let it be forl,

FennoVivant° rnait IttegraP4, tUttintobap 7tfternoon, Ottobtr 29, 1862
There has heat obvious to us for some time
past growing restlessness in the publiC mindl
at the apparent inaction of our armies in the
vicinity of the capital ; and we confess tolluiv
ingAtnitl in-tionie degree in the genitrallitel 7 ,
big of impatience. But, insufficiently Wimp:
ed as to facts important to a correct jtifighient
on so delicate a subject, or of the opinions of
those to whom-alit the eircoinstaticee bearing '
on the case must be officially known, we could
not attempt to express an opinion for ourselves
or to elucidate the matter for our readers. It
is certainly not unnatural that our loyal coun
trymen who ere not fully informed oe all that
relates-tee' military matters, but who may be
impressed with the opinion that everything_ is
in troartiplfita" state of "prepa r ation 'for arifitre
operations, should experience disappointment
at the long pause which has taken place in
those operations; therefore,,we have thought
ft our day to our readers lei seek from such
well advised sources as we could,, sufficient In
formation to authorize us . to hazard a few ob
servations on the subject,
It seems to be undoubted that the Eebel army
under General Lee is holding a position near
Winchester, apparently; aiting the advance, of
the army of the Potomap under Gen. McClellan.
Gee. Lee's command embraces nearly all the
ablest Generals and the oldest reginiente of the
Confederate army. The Southern authorities
have not proved intangible to the importance of
omitting nothing which could place their army'
in a condition to resist successfully the army of
General McClellan, to.which end it has been
supplied with their best men and abundance of
the materials of war - Heretofore, when these
two ermine have met, the result , has proved
desperate and bloody, and no easy victory has
ever been, or can be expected to be, obtain , '
over Lee's army by the . army. of ,the Potomac;
or any other of equal number. It mould seem
to us bordering on 'folly, after the tarperienee of
the seven days fighting ori the Pehineulti, and
after the terrible bat't lee le Maryla,ed i toatte t epe
to make our people believe that the-rebels do
not fight well, while it must be apparent to all
that troops never fought better: At the san
guinary tattle of Antietam the valor, discipline
aud.prowess of the army of the Potomac were
taxed to the utmost extent, and it war only by
the masterly handling of the : reserves inwards
the close of the battle that our Generalwas able
to win the day. With an army confronting
him, which has shown itself so nearly equal to
his on on many fields '
we Teel qUite sure that
those having at heart the real interest of the
country will not desire that. General McClellan
should in autiously and without due prepara
tion advance to meet en' powerful an enemy,
when a few days' delay will enable him-to move
foYward in the confidence of victory.'
A battle like that at. Antietam: coriht not re
sult in 'anything but 'heavy lures, which must
be supplied to tender our army at effective as
before. We have learnt that . the' anti)? which
was suffieleotly clad for a sumznet's eampaign
on the Peninsula, was not prepared for an
autumn. and winter minttc-in Vitgififs , and that
many were sadly deficient in proper winter
clothing and ?Awes. These deficiencies, not
withstanding the enormous demands for the
new levies, have, by the great exertions of the
proper bureaus, been sppplied within a few
days. Other requisites:.equally important are
being furnished with all possible despatch, and
soon our army will be not only -Comfortably
clad for a campaign, but thoroughly equipped
—circumstances no .less agreeable. to the army,
ever restless in inaction, and the country
at large, than 'adapted to the attainment 01
what all desire.
If men would for a moment contemplate the
ditastrolis consequences of a sigma defeat to our
arms at the present juncture, we feel sure that
no considerate person would risk suety' centAn
gency, when in the opinion of those well—if
not best-qualified to judge, a few , days' at
farthest will, all we are angered, witness the
pn paration of our army fora akceasful advance.
If we rilect upon the time that has been re
quired to supply the Imes of the late battles,
and consider the difficulty of raising an army
sufficient to resist a rebel force, unfortunately
for us proving superior to that we have
the field, from reaching Washington - , Baltimore
and Philadelphia, we must concede the proprie
ty of the fullest preparation on the part of the
Government before requiring an advanCe,
which, when commenced, must know no pante.
We feel justified in assuring our readers that
the Government Is using every effort, and that
successfully, to place our army in a conditionto
prosecute:the campaign triumphantly, and we
think the public may rest satisfied that when
these arrangements are perfected, there will be
no dilatoriness on the part of the Government
or the Generals in the field, and that when our
forces move, it will. be for a.campaign to end
only in the, suppression of armed rebellion. We
believe that there,existss perfectly hannonions
co-operation between the civil and military de
partments of service, and the country may con
fidently expect that each, in its proper sphole,
will exert every energy to prosecute the war to
an early and succeestul termination.
Tim South Bend Register, (Indiana) whose
editor, the. Hon. Schuyler Colfax, is barely re
elected to Congress, says :
"If the 11,000 volunteers fur this district
were at home instead of on the battle-field, we
should have elected three more niembers of the
Legislature in the Dith District alone, and the
90,000 from the State would have elected the
Union State ticket, overwhelmingly."
A careful return has been made of the vulub
teem from Mr. Colfses &trig', and the totals
are as follows

Of whom there were voters 8,110
Of these mere Republicans 6,126

"This loss wipes out the former Republicah
