DON'T FORGET THE FAMILIES OF THE DRAFTED
Man —Winter is here in earnest; and we would
therefore urge the citizens of the different town
ships of the county to take steps at once to
secure the families of those who have gone from
their midst to aid in crushing the wicked rebel
lion, against want. Many poor persons have
volunteered, and many have been drafted, whos2
sates we commend to the consideration of the
benevolent and patriotic. The wives and chil
dren of such men should not be permitted to
suffer, but all their necessities, in the way either
of food or clothing, be constantly supplied.—
This is a duly devolved upon those who remain
at home. Let it he faithfully performtd. Our
granaries are stocked full of the fruits of a rich
harvest. Plenty blessed the labor of the farmer.
Abundance smiled hem every quarter, and
now before want seizes and pinches the fami
lies of the soldiers, we trust that our friends in
the county will organize and make arrangements
for doing that which covereth not only a mul
titude of sins, but exalteth a man and enno•
bleth a patriot.

Large numbers of these degraded creatures are
nightly captured and imorisorted, and the per
sistency with which the police go about their
work, admits of no doubt of their determination
to accomplish a good riddance of tide bad rub
bage. The Gazette relates an affecting interview
between one of those thus arrested, and her
father, who had been in quest of his erring and
fallen daughter for months, but who could not
obtain any tracts of his sinning child. Seeing
her name among those announced as arrested
and committed, he visited the prison and found
her. She is twenty-ono years of age, and rather
fair looking. They spoke in Welsh, a language
not understood by those present, but their ac
tions told plainly their feelings, and conveyed
an idea of the nature of their conversation.
The conduct of the daughter was respectful, and
she seemed completely overcome, whilst the
father appeared to keenly appreciate his posi

the State Capital, on the same crime, might
prevent the ruin of many who would otherwise
become useful to hemselves and society.
AN IMPORTANT ORDER.-It will be seen by an
order which we print below, that the officers '
who were lately in this city, for the purpose of
receiving detachments of the drafted men to fill
up the old regiments now in the field, have been
ordered back to their different posts, which is of
COMM tantamount to the rescinding of the first
order on the sui ject of taking the men in question
for the old regiments. In view of these facts, we
infer that it is the intention of the War Depart
ment to submit the matter of the organization
of companies and regiments of the drafted sol
diers, to the men themselves. In fact we have
reason to believe that a full understanding has
been had between the State Government and
the War Department, and that the matter at
issue has been satisfactorily arranged, and that
the drafted men are conceded the right of con
trolling their own organization. This of course
obviates all difficulty. The right which the
state administration has insisted upon is thus
acknowledged, and all cause for dissatisfaction
removed. It now becomes the drafted men to
be careful how they select inexperienced or in
capacitated officers to lead them into battle,
and 48 much of the late trouble in relation to
the men going into the old regiments, can be
traced to those who were fearful that, by such a
movement, they would lose positions of com
mand, let the men themselves now speak on the
subject. Since it is no longer a subject of force
to compel them to go into the old regiments,
let all who are convinced they cannot find com
petent men to lead them among those drafted,
make it a matter of choice, and at once offer to
enter the old regiments voluntarily. The man
who wants to do good service, and at the same
time become useful to himself, will not refuse,
under all the circumstances, at once to enter an
old company or regiment.
The following is the order to which we refer:

COL. M. S. QUAY, of Beaver county, is in the
State Capital, partially recovered from the se
vere attack which prostrated him almost from
the time he took command of his regiment iu
the field. We have a high regard for Colonel

either to take command of his regiment once
more, or assume some other duty where his
fine abilities and true integrity might be de

TUB CIIRRENCY-SOAROITY OF SMALL CHANGH.
The scarcity of email change is seriously felt by
the business men and others in this community.
The business man loses many a sale which he
might otherwise make, if he could change a
dollar note, and the mechanic and laborer would
save many pennies if the usual quantity of
small change was still afloat, as he is often
compelled to buy more and unnecessary articles
in order to enable him to procure that which
he actually needs. This state of facts is
almost unendurable in a city with a regular
and floating population:of upwards of thirty
thousand souls, and many expedients are now
being tried to remedy the evil. Numerous
checks for Five, Ten, and Twenty-five cents are
in circulation, printed in a most unworkmanlike
manner, purporting to be payable at the York
Bank, city of Wilmington, Reading, &c., signed
by various names, which of a necessity have a
large circulation, and yet the receiver of this
miserable printed paper is not aware whether
the signer of the check is actually in existence
or whether he is worth a single farthing to re
deem the slip of paper circulating as money.—
Others have adopted a plan of cutting a one
dollar note into two pieces, and circulating them
for fifty cents. All this kind of paper money
ought to be discarded by the community, and
we advise every business man to keep his goods
rather than aid in circulating worthless paper,
assist dishonest men to defraud the honest la
borer and mechanic, and who will be compelled
tokeep this worthless trash eventually on hand.
By the kindness of the President of the City
Council, W. 0. Hickok, Esq., we have been
permitted to examine the various designs in
tended for the new issuesof small note currency
about to be adopted by our city, and it gives us
pleasure to announce to the public that they
are to be gotten up in a most beautiful manner.
But the action of Council lest night, unless
it is re-considered, will frustrate the design of
thus facilitating business and accommodating
those who have already suffered so much from
the inconvenience and the dearth of change.
The cost of the engraving and printing of
these notes would be a small item in compari
son to the economy which the plan is designed
to produce. An hour's experience in our pub.
lic markets is sufficient to sustain the claim—
and if this would not suffice, the testimony of
every man in the city would at once establish
the fact that the present scarcity of change is
one of the greatest burdens which the people
are compelled to carry.
We trust that the matter will not be suffered to
go by default. The banks give us nothing but
relief notes, the silver and gold currency is in
the hands of brokers and speculators, the post
age currency is gobbled up and held by the same
cormorants. What then are the people to do ?
Either suffer themselves to become the vio
tims of the speculator, or devise means for
their own protection. It is the duty of every cons
inanity to do so —and the Council representing this
city must not fail in this city.
Ins ORGANIZATION or TIM Drumm MTN.—
This is a subject of such great importance, that
we are willing all should be heard in its discus
sion, who can bring a word of truth or argu
ment to the support of any of the propositions
relating to it, now before the public. The fol
lowing communication, relating to the matter,
is clear, lucid and candid, so far as it goes, and
was written by a gentleman who has had great
experience among the men now in service. We
submit his views to those most interested, the
privates who are now numbered among the
Editor of the Alegraph:—
At this time there is much difficulty in organ- .
icing the regiments of drafted men at Camp
Curtin. The Governor, the Adjutant General,
the Quartermaster General, the Commissary
General, and the Surgeon General, are doing all
they possibly can for the good of the service,
and the comfort and safety of the drafted sol
diers of Pennsylvania. I believe no one doubts
the sincerity of those officers. They have a Ref
culean task on their hands. A task which I
think is made heavier by the apparent want of
patriotism in many of the officers who accom.
pany the drafted men to the capital. I have
listened to those officers in the public houses of
this city, and I could come to no other conclu
-Ision than that they are not well qualified to
lead troops into the field of battle. They speak
freely, as if they thought the success of our cause
I depended on entire organisations of new troops,
with green o ffi cers. Make them officers, and
all will be subordination, and the troops safe:
Relieve them and insubordination will be the
order of the day ; ut least so say these officers.
I would appeal to the men's patriotism. We
are in war—active war. Can you conscien
tiously take charge of the lives of the wise
who are called to serve their country in the
battle field f Can you lead them into a fierce
engagement and guard them froth the surprised
and flank movements of veteran opponents
No one doubts your courage ; ; but you have no
experience ; and courage without science and,
experience is of little avail in battle. I for One
believe that the brave ' men in Camp Curtin
would be much more safe in the old regiments,
or at least officered by experienced men from
Let me give you an instance : The Governor
of this State, in his usual kind attention to the
suffering soldiers in the late battles in Mary
land, had a list of all the sick and wounded
taken and a return made to the Surgeon Gen
eral. That list shows the fact, that one unfor
tunate new regiment of brave men were cat to

A PANIC AMONG TM/ SWIMS AT CAMP CITP.TIN.
An order has been recently issued, to the ef
fect, that the sutlers at Camp-Curtin be here
after restrained from condubting their business
iu that Camp. This order applies indiscrimi
nately to all who have been in any manner
huckstering in that ` vicinity, and has created
considerable disappointment and loos to many
who were dependent upon the little business
they conducted in Camp Curtin for their liv
ing. There were many worthy women who by
the sale of fruit and cakes made what support
ed their families, while we heard of a soldier,
severely wounded in battle, and who is unfitted
for any labor, who was among the number
notified to leave, and thus of course deprived
of his business and his support. We are not
aware of the object of this order, nor the pur-
pose that is to be effected. It is vaguely hint
ed the monoply of the Camp is to be awarded
to a single individual If, this is really so, we
will inform our readers of the fact—but of
course that information will have no effect in
putting a stop to such a monopoly.
Dreraccriva Frau IN Yosx Boactron.—Car
Works and Machine Shops Destroyed—Loss, $40,-
000.—We learn from our York exchanges, that
early on Friday morning, a destructive fire
broke out in the engine room of Messrs. 'igen
fritz at White's car works, in that borough. A
strong wind prevailed, which seriously increased
the fury of the flames, and baffled the efforts
of the firemen. In quick succession the seve
ral frame buildings owned by this firm, together
with the agricultural and machine works of the
Messrs. Dingee, were in full blase. The first
named firm lost all their valuable machinery
and material, large in quantity, as they were
engaged in filling a few heavy contracts. A
magnificent new passenger car, built by this
firm for the Reading and Columbia railroad,
stood en .a side ttack, and was totally consumed.
The car was nearly finished, at a cost of two
thousand dollars. Their aggregate loss is, per
haps,, thirty.thousand dollars. They are insu
red for aboUi $2,500 in each of the two York
companies ; and they have some foreign insu
rance. • But their loss over all insurance is
The Messrs. Dingee, too, are completely
burt out. The loss .they have sustained may
count seven or eight thousand dollars—possibly
more. Of this, they have an insurance of
about $2,500 in the York County Mutual, to
gether with protection in some other compa
nies. The insurance will hardly cover more
than five thousand dollars. The fire swept
across Beaver street, consuming the coal office
of George A. Barnita, together with shedding.
All the contents of the office, except two iron
safes, were removed. The contents in the safes
were either burnt or scorched, but they con
tained nothing of much value. This does net
speak well for safes, as the volume of heat from
a small frame office is comparatively trifling.
The machine shop of Messrs. Small & Smy
