THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT,
HARRISBURG , PA.
TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 26, 1861,
The Pennsylvania Reserve Corps
The Legislature recently made some gener
al inquiries, concerning the condition of the
troops from this State,now in the service of the
United States, and more particularly with
reference to the condition of the Reserve Corps.
In reply to the resolution of inquiry, Gov.
Curtin transmitted the correspondence which
he had with the Provost Marshal General and
the War Department. The main facts eli
cited by this correspondence, have already
been given to the people ; but after a careful
reperusal of the letters of His Excellency and
those of Brig. Gen. Canby, we are convinced
of one thing, namely, that Gen. Canby
either has a poor appreciation of what is
due to the private soldier, or he is unwilling
to recognize the binding of a contract be
tween the Governor of the State of Pennsyl
vania, and those of its citizens who answered
his appeals for aid in enforcing and sustaining
the national authority and honor. The organi :.
zation of the Pennsylvania Reserve Corps was a
work independent of any call of the War De
partment. When Gov. Curtin was busy in
recruiting the Reserve, many wise men were
preaching that the war would not last sixty
days. The men who rallied to the State stand
ard, did so with the most explicit under
standing that they were not to leave the limits
of the Commonwealth ; that whatever might
be their term of service, it would be computed
from the hour they were mustered into and
passed to the control of the State. The un
derstanding on their part was as explicit as the
terms of any contract which ever bound man
and man to the fulfillment of an obligation.
The faith of the State was thus passed to
the men who then gallantly armed for its de
fence, and when the State of Pennsylvania,
by the prompt action of Gov. Curtin, trans
ferred the Reserve Corps to the service of the
National authorities, every obligation which
bound her to those men, was placed in the
hands of the Federal Government for fulfill
ment. The men of the Reserve had enlisted
in Pennsylvania for three years. Before the
Reserve was transferred to the War Depart
ment, a portion of that time had already been
consumed-L-given by the men in good faith,
and understood by them when they entered
the service of the National authorities, that it
was for the unexpired term of service which
they owed the State of, Pennsylvania. Had a
word been uttered to alter this . impression at
the time the Reserve was mustered into the
service of the United States, the men would
have revolted, not that they, shrank from the
service of the Government even for an unlimi
ted term, but that their independence and
true manhood would not permit them to sub
mit to injustice from any quarter.
Already we see the effects of this breach
of faith With the Reserve Corps. By its arbi
trary decrees the War Department may be
able to retain the Reserve Corps in the field
for a few days, weeks or even months beyond
the time when the men feel that their term of
service is fairly ended. But such an advan
tage will be barren of all results save such as
will really destroy the confidence of those men
in the faith of the Government, and impel
them, at the end of their term, indignantly to
refuse all further re-enlisments. They will
do this, not that they love their country
less than when they first rushed to its
rescue; but that they despise duplicity,
whether it is evinced in the armed efforts
of a Southern traitor to overthroW, or the
arbitrary decisions of an imperious and intol
erant official officer to render that Government
to a certain extent odious. Our table is now
covered with letters, written by the brave
boys of the Reserves appealing to us to pro
est against the hardship of the decrees of the
War Department, which keep them in the
field, arbitrarily, over their clearly understood
Sum of service. Thttigh dripping with the
blood of many a hard fought.field, they are
not anxious to retire to their homes because
they are weary of the fight. - Though their
ranks have been decimated, and they pre
sented but skeletons of their former full-flushed
healthful - vigor, they still feel that they have
rights which are as sacred as any of those
which attach themselves to power, and which
no man in authority can violate and maintain
the honor and integrity of the. Government
which he represents. It is not fair thus to
harass, with decisions unsupported by justice,
• the already over-worked and almost worn-out
men in the field. They should have the ben
efit of every doubt in making a decision or
enforcing a construction of a law. They have
a right to be heard and respected in the high
est councils of the nation, while those who
deny them these claims, are unfit to control
their actions and direct their valor.
—Perhaps we have couched our sentiments
on this subject in language which may appear
too strong and even offensive to those in' au
thority. If such be the case, our excuse must
be our regard for the faith of the Govern
ment, which should not be violated recklessly;
and our respect for its brave defenders, who
cannot be treated unjustly with impunity.
Thp Tory Organ's Good Joke.
The meanness and the hypocrisy of the
4rivellers and pimps who control the col
umns of the Tory Organ were never exhibited
in a truer light, than that which they reflected
in connection with the contest for the sword
at the New York Sanitary Fair. While the
favorite of all the tories in the country,
Bl'Clellan, was supposed to have a chance of
getting the weapon, the Tory,Organ delighted
to extol the contest; but since the result has
proven that Grant had two votes te
one, the Tory Organ affects to treat the affair
with contempt. Oh! Pigs!
The Union men of Lancaster county held
their convention in Lancaster city yesterday,
at which every district in the county was fully

Representative—George W. Mehaffey, CoL W.
S. Aufweg, W. H. Shirk and J. R. Alexander.
The following resoliftions, of immediate
State and national interest, were then offered
by Col. Dickey, and unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That we regard Abraham Lincoln
as the representative of the Great Union sen
timent of the people of the United States, a
statesman and a patriot; one who "hath borne
his faculties so meek, hath been so clear in
his great office," as to justify all that his
warmest friends ever claimed for him, and
who, from the faithful and impartial perform
ance of his duties, has extorted a tribute of
praise even from his bitterest political foes.
Resolved, That we, in the name of the peo
ple we represent, cordially endorse, approve
and pledge ourselves ever to sustain the Presi
dent in his wise and patriotic determination
to crush out the Rebellion, punish treason,
restore the Union, maintain the supremacy of
the laws, and forever abolish Slavery, the

support Abraham Lincoln for nomination as
the Union candidate for President of the
United States, to adopt such a platform of
principles as shall sustain and support him in
the determination that the Umon shall be
restored, freedom upheld and disseminated,
traitors punished, the Constitution preserved
and so amended that "liberty shall be pro-

Resolved, That in Andrew G. Curtin, we.
have a Governor, in whom as PennsylVanians,
we feel a just pride, who is ever ready with
his great talents to bring to the' aid of the
Union, the power and services of our Great
State; who is the. soldier's friend, the foe of
our country's foe, and in whose hands the
flag of our State will never be tarnished and
her honor ever jealously guarded and de-'
Resolved, That we give thanks and praise to
our gallant soldiers of the-Republic who have
so nobly and patriotically left their homes,
kindred and business; taken their lives in
their hands and gone forth to meet our coun

Resolutions were also offered endorsing the
attitude of the Representatives in Congress
and the Legislature, after which the Conven
The Patriotism of the Presbytery of liar
The following paper, written by the Rev.
Robinson, of this city, was unanimously adopt
ed by the Presbytery of Harrisburg, at its
recent meeting in Carlisle. The paper breathes
the true spirit of Christianity and patriotism,
and is another evidence of the devotion of the
Presbyterian ministry to the cause of the coun
"Called once again, in the providence of
God, to convene while the civil war, caused
by an unholy rebellion, is still raging in our
beloved country, this Presbytery deems it to
be eminently proper to renew the expression
of its sentiments in regard to matters that
vitally affect the interests of government,
liberty and religion, put in peril by the con
spirators against our national Unitas.
And that we may not be misunderstood,
nor our position be in any manner equivocal,
we do hereby solemnly reaffirm the testimony
we have given on former occasions, so far as
it bears upon the wickedness of the rebel
lion, in its inception,,in its continuance and
in its objects, and upon the , duty of all citi
zens to sustain the government of the coun
try by every means in their power, till the re
bellion be utterly suppressed. This duty of
unconditional, unreserved loyalty to the con
stitutionally elected government of the nation,
we desire distinctly to reaffirm as a principle
of our holy religion and a part of our alle
giance to God.
We desire further to put upon record that
three years of terrible strife and suffering in
the destruction of property,. the loss of life,
the sorrows, the desolations, and the sad
moral influences of the war, have in no degree
altered our conviction that our duty to our
country, to posterity and to God demands
that we count these sacrifices cheap to gain the
great end of exterminating treason, preserving
the supremacy of law and saving the coun
try from anarchy and ruin ; but on the other
hand have greatly deepened our abhorrence
of the principles, the spirit and the conduct
of the leaders of the rebellion, and of all who
by word or deed or by silence show any sym
pathy for them or for their object.
And rising above the transient passions and
political excitements of the day to those
larger interests of human liberty, we return
thanksgiving to God that through his mighty
providence that system of human bondage
which is the root of the whole insurrectionary.
movement and whose permanence was the
avowed object of its leaders, is melting away
—that by the powerful hand of war, by the
action of disenthralled States and our Nation
al Legislature, we hope soon to see the last
vestiges of the great iniquity removed from
We would also exhort our brethren every
where and all who love our common country
to rebuke and oppose this spirit of disloyalty,
to speak words of truth and soberness, to dis
countenance all lovers of sympathy with trea
son—to give a cordial support to all who are
entrusted with civil or military authority—to
pray for our rulers, and the officers and men
of our army and navy, to be unremitting, in
kind attentions and charities to those who toil
or suffer for us in this war—to stand by the
country, patient, unconquerable, hopefully
waiting on God, till he gives to a disciplined,
purified and re -cemented nation a peace based
on principles of everlasting righteousness.
We would also express the gratification we
have felt to-day in being permitted to visit the
U. S. Barracks near this town; to receive the'
attentions of the commandant and the worthy
chaplain of the post, to speak words of sym
pathy to the soldiers and to see the flag of our
country waving over the ruins caused by the
soldiers of treason.
A jIIST Rzsus:s.—The Union men of Lan
ter county, in their late convention, passed a
resolution compelling every man hereafter
nominated for office in that caunty, to pledge
himself as having never had any connection
with the secret organization known as the-
Thugs; while the same convention, in ac
knowledging the services of the Braminer, Ex
press and the Volksfreund, passed over the In
-quirer, which has assumed to be a loyal sheet,
while it defended ne schemes and the corrup
tions of the thugs. The rebuke to the In
quirer was well merited and justly bestowed.
The Sixth Congressional District.
The Union men of the Sixth Congressional
district, composed of the counties of Mont
gomery and Lehigh, will be represented in the
Union National Qtavention by the following
Delegates—Daniel 0. Ilitner, of Montgomery
county; Edwin G. Moore, of Lehigh county.
Alternates—William Mintzer, of Montgom
ery comity; and Edwin J. Moore, of Lehigh
—Resolutions endorsing the National and
State administrations were adopted, and the
delegates unanimously instructed to vote fs)r
the nomination of Abraham Lincoln.
Our Steamers Among the Block
WAJ3KINGTO:ST, April 26
The Navy Department has received -infor
mation or the captufe of the schooner Three
Brothers, by the United States steamer Nita,
off the coast of Florida, and the sinking and
entire loss of the blockade-running schooner
It seems that she was discovered by the
steamer Hendrick Hudson, who supposed her
to be the Electric, a schooner she had boarded
the day previously; but she still kept a watch
on her, and as the Hudson neared her she
saw she was a blockade runner. The Wild
Pigeon suddenly lulled directly across the
Hudson's bows, and in spite of all that could
be done, the Hudson struck her directly amid
ships, staving her whole side in and sinking
her in three minutes.

HEADQUARTERS OF THE ARMY AND
DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA. f
No. 66. . r
With feelings of the deepest sorrow the
Commanding General announces the fall of
Plymouth, North Carolina, and the capture of
its gallant commander, Brigadier-General H.
W. Wessels, and his command. This result,
however, was not obtained until after the
most gallant and determined resistance had
been made. Five times the enemy stormed
the lines of the General, and as many times
were they handsomely repulsed, with great
slaughter, and but for the powerful assistance
of the rebel iron-clad and the floating sharp
shooter battery, the' Cotton Plant, Plymouth
would still have been in our hands.
For their noble defence, the gallant Gen.
Wessels and his brave band desetve the warm
est thanks of the whole country, whilst all
will sympathize with them in their misfortune.
To the officers and men of the navy the Com
manding General tenders his thanks for their
hearty co-operation with the army, and the
bravery, determination, and coolness that
marked their part of the unequal contest
With sorrow he records the death of the noble
sailor and gallant patriot, Lieut. Cora. C. W.
Flusser, United States Navy, who, in the heat
of battle, fell dead on the deck of his ship,
with the lanyard of his gun in his hand. The
Commanding General believes that these mis
fortunes will tend not to discourage, but to
nerve the Army of North Carolina to equal
deeds of bravery and gallantry hereafter.
Until further orders the headquarters of the
sub-district of Albemarle will be at Roanoke
Island. The command devolves upon Col.

were getting the worst of it, when a small
