Rebel Treatment of Prisoners.
As the rebels protract their struggle against
the General Government they seem to grow
in barbarity and utter disregard for. the laws
of humanity. The North has long known of
the indignity practised upon Union prisoners
in their possession,but it was loth to believe the
extent to which those cruelties were carried.
S,ick and wounded men in their prisons have
not only been neglected so far . as medical
treatment was coucerned,but beyond this, even
reecessary food was denied them in sufficient
quantities to preserve them from actual
starvation. Further testimony reached us
from Baltimore, based upon_ the condition of
our soldiers lately received at that point from
the rebel capital. They are wasted to skel
etons. Men, weighing when in health one
hundred and eighty to two hundred pounds,
are reduced, through want of food alone, to one
hundred pounds. Ono of the men reported
to a visitor that out of five hundred and eighty
sick persons taken into one Richmond hospi
tal, in a month five hundred and sixty-five
died. Old bones, rats and dogs, it appears,
were caught and eaten with avidity..'_ . Of those
received at Baltimore, out of one hUndred and
six, twenty-one died during the past week.'
Of the dreadful atrocities practiced upon our
men at Belle Island we have .already had oc
casion to speak. Thrown, to the number of
thousands, upon its shores, they were robbed
of ovoryaLiag i,r,a left exposed. without shel- ,
ter from the cold or heat. History furnishes
no parallel to such barbarity, even in the
midst of war. In the meantime the rebels
confined by the Government at Johnson's Is
land, Camp Chase,Fort Warren and elsewhere,
under the Federal flag, meet with very differ
ent treatment. The regular army rations are
served to them daily by the nuillitary authori
ties, and Copperhead sympathy furnishes
them with delicacies which many of them
never knew while living peacefully under their
eternally quoted Southern rights. We are
not generally in favor of retaliation, but if in
the treatment of their prisoners their inten
tion is to forte a recognition by the creation
of a Northern sympathy for the suffefings of
those in their power, we fear they will sig
nally fail in their object. Indignation is the
only sentiment which can pervade the human
breast at the recital of such unwarranted
wrongs upon the persons of those entirely
helplessly at their mercy. ,
The Presbytery. of Harrisburg.
Editor of the Telegraph:
In your brief introduction on Tuesday to the
paper adopted by the Presbytery of Harris
burg, at its recent session in Carlisle, you
state that the "paper," so eloquently and
justly sustaining the course of the country in
the hour of its trial and peril,Wai adopted unctn
bnously. I have reason to believe that you have
either been misinformed,orlhat you inadvert
ently were led into an error whilst commena -
bly seekin; to compliment the Presbytery. I
am clearly of the impression that it was under
stood in Carlisle, that Rev. W: R. De Witt
of Harrisburg ' refused to vote for or against
the "paper." If lam wrong, let those who
know the facts make the proper correction.
As UNCONDITIONAL Usion Mix.
[Remarks.—We confess that we made the
statement as to the "paper" in question hav
ing passed the Presbytery of Harrisburg,
unanimously, -on a mere presumption and we
now give place to the communication of
"An Unconditional Union Man," only to sub
serve the truth, with the assurance that, if he
is mistaken, our columns are open for the
proper correction.—Eorron TELEGRAPH.]
THE FEELING or was Ann .—The Wash
ington Chronicle of the Ist inst. says that its
private advices from the army indicate that
the troops were never in better spirits, or in
more efficient condition than they are to-day.
They are eager for the fray, and confident of
success. They look to this campaign as the
final one of the war, and while duly estimat
ing the gallantry and steady endurance of the
foe, they patiently await the signal which is to
hurl the reinvigorated legions of the Republic
against the choicest troops of the rebellion.
Grant is regarded as doing his work thorough
ly, and, when the strife begins, they expect
it to be vigorously and suateSslully fol
DIOTILLINO STOPPED 1 Mississippi. The
Mississippi Legislature has enacted a law
which confiscates the property and everything
appertaining thereto of a distillery, and im
poses a fine of live thousand dollars and
twelve months' imprisonment on every State
or county officer failing to report every of
fender. Evidently that body is intent on
stopping the . conversion of grain - into grog, if
severe legislation will effect it.
The Faith of Pennsylvania'
A year ago, when the Pennsylvania militia
were called out, to act as what were denomi
nated the "emergency men," the banks of
the Commonwealth offered to furnish the
money to defray the expenses of such troops,
until the U. S. Government had made the ne
cessary appropriations - for the same. The
faith of the President of the United States was
pledged to Gov. Curtin that Congress would
certainly make such an appropriation. The
lapse of time has proven, however, that Con
gress is not disposed to assume this portion
of the debt for the National defence, and Gov.
Curtin, no longer willing to deprive the par
ties who supplied the funds for the purpose
named; of the , money which so justly belongs
to them, on Saturday last delivered a message
to the Legislature detailing the facts involved
in the case. With a promptness which does
honor to the credit and faith of Pennsylvania,
the Legislature at once provided for the re
turn of the money in question to the parties
first extending its loan to the State, thus vin
dicating the faith of the Commonwealth, and
giving additional assurance to the brave 'men
who enter the service on a covenant with Penn
sylvania, that every obligation contracted by
this State will always be faithfully discharged.
For the persistency and zeal with which Gov.
Curtin has pursued his business, and the
promptitude with which the Legislature has
acted in the premises, those whose interests
were involved in this matter must feel them
selves largely indebted to His Excellency.
Expiration of the Term of Enlistment of
the Reserve Corps. ,
Great dissatisfaction having grown out of
a decision to the effect, that the War Depart
ment would not recognize a muster for a less
period than three years, and the said decision
having had an injurious effect upon what were
the clear rights of the men of the Pennsyl
vania Reserve Corps, Gov. Curtin has been
making the most strenuous efforts to have nu
order issued recognizing the date of the thus
ter of the Reserves, from the time that they
enlisted in the service of the State ; which
will end- the term of enlistment some weeks
and even months sooner than was at first de
cided by the Department, We urged the
importance of this decision some weeks since,
as an act of common justice -to the Reserves ;
and we now congratulate the War Department
on the'effect it will have with - the veterans of
the Reserve. We predict that four-fifths of
the Reserve will re-enlist, a result of the
highest importance to the service.
In the meantime, we now earnestly recom
mend to the people of the lopalities in which
the Reseri - es belong, at once to enter into ar—
rangements for the proper reception of those
brave men. They have won the highest hon
ors of the nation, and they deserve, at least,
the most enthusiastic welcome of- the Com
mppwealth to which they belong.
Henry Clay In New Orleans
In one of the most beautiful streets of New
Orleans stands a coloSsal statue of Clay. The
monument has been a sort of rallying point
of secessionists, ever
. since the Federal occu
pation, in (tampons notes and talk of rebel
successes and Union disasters. From the New
Orleans Era we learn that Mayor Hoyt has
given orders to have inscribed upon the pe
destal of the statue the following words from
one of the speeches of Clay:
"If I could be instrumental in eradicating
this deepest stain, slavery, from the character
of our country, I Would not exchange the
e proud satisfaction which I should enjoy for
- die honor of all the triumphs ever decreed
to the most successful conqueror."
The monument might be chiselled all over
with like passages from Clay, expressing not
only his intense disapproval of slavery, but
his abhorrence of the policy of making the
interests of the institution the war ory for the
destruction of the Union. Foreseeing that a
'contingency like the present might occur, he
most emphatically declared where, in such an
event, his influence would be given, and that
he could never 'be found fighting under any
We see is stated that Mr, J. R. Sypher,
long an army correepondent of the New York
Trdbnune, and for several years connected with
the press of Lancaster city, has now completed
his arrangements for the publication of a
"History of the Pennsylvania Reserve , C-orps,"
Elias Barr & Co., of Lancaster city, to be the
publishers. A truthfully written history of
the Pennsylvania Reserves cannot fail to fill
the brightest page in the annals. of the strag
gle to ptit down rebellion. The circumstances
attending the organization of the Reserves, the
liberality in their equipment and the cafe de
voted to their discipline before they left the
State, with the alacrity with which they en
tered the service of the 'National Government,
and the steadfast devotion with which they
have continued that service for three years,
will form a history of which every Pennsylva
nian and all true soldiers must feel proud.
From what we know of Mr. Sypher as a writer,
and his large (experience in military affairs in
connection with the Reserves, we have every
reason to anticipate a work of rare merit, as
well for its literary excellence as for its histo
GriE TILE DEVIL HIS DUE. —The Chicago
Times, noted as one of the foremost peace
organs in the country, frankly takes ground
against the conclusions arrived at by the Con
gressman Long in his now famous speech. It
argues strongly against any movement looking
toward a recognition of the confederacy, and
denies that any considerable portion of the
Democratic party are disposed to take that
ground.. The doctrine thus promulgated by
the Times, would not be- palatable to those
who swear by or contribute to the Tory' Organ.
Our Pennsylvania copperhead leaders_ are for
peace—any result, in fact, which will save
slavery, embarrass "abolitionism," and damn
