THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT,
SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 21, 1864
Meeting of Conferees.
The Conferees from the counties of Dauphin,
Northumberland, Union, Snyder and Juniata,
appointed for the purpose of electing dele
gates to the National Convention, will meet
at Sunbury, Northumberland county, on Wed
nesday evening next, May 25, for the purpose
of discharging the duty entrusted to them.
Already companies of organized militia are
being reported to the Adjutant General, and
if we may judge from the manner in which
the Appeal of Governor Curtin has been re
ceived, the Department will soon have
upon its books, the record of a force num
bering many thousands, the whole of which
will be made available'to the Government in
any emergency which may grow out of the
great campaign that our armies are now
fighting in Virginia. But, the object is not
so much to get a record of these militia compa
nies, as it is to secure the thorough organiza
tion and discipline of all men capable of bear
ing arms. If thus organized and disciplined,
a sudden call for troops to repel invasion or
for reinforcements to enable Grant to defeat
Lee, can be responded to not by mere raw mi
litia, but by an army of soldiers fit to meet
any foe, capable of rendering the most valua
ble services to the Government. Whatever
may be the result of this war to crush rebel
lion, it will become necessary for every Amer
ican citizen to possess a knowledge of arms
and to fit himself for active military services.
If we force peace at the point of the bayonet,
on our rebel foes, it will still require a con
siderable force to garrison the revolted
_States, therein to maintain order and enforce
the law. In addition to this, it will be im
possible for our Government to keep out of a
difficulty with the usurpers who are now
perfecting their outrages in Mexico ; a diffi
culty which must involve the Old and the
New World in a straggle for the empire
of a hemisphere. Hence, the free and
loyal citizens of the United States must,
of necessity, become a thoroughly military
people, maintaining their internalpeace, enforc
ing their rights and protecting their interests
among the nations of the world, alone by a
demonstration of their military force and in
fluence. A knowledge of the use of arms will
thus be made .the essential of the most ordi
nary education. The mechanic and the farmer,
the profesional man and the merchant, will
devote themselves to such an acquirement as
zealously as they now seek improvement in
the knowledge necessary to success in their
Various professions and pursuits. By devot
ing themselves to this training now, the men
who steadily perfect themselves as soldiers,
and are fitted for duty in the field, will exercise
a vast influence on the rising generation. A
boy catches the military ardor of an age much
quicker than the same spirit is communicated
to men—so that the more the men of a com
munity now perfect themselves in the use of
arms, the less discipline will be necessary for
the men who are to take our places in the
progress of generations, the less time will be
necessary to constitute the - soldier, until we
actually become a nation of mailed men, ready
at all times for war, invincible against all na
tions who seek to become our foes.
—The appeal of the Governor of the-Com
monwealth is of that practical character which
has characterized all his suggestions relating
to the military operations of the people of
Pennsylvania. If it is responded to in a like
spirit, in a very few weeks an army could be
organized in the State such as will startle
the world when it is summoned to the res
cue. All that is needed to accomplish this is
action, organization and discipline. Will our
young men make the effort to secure these?
WE TRUST THAT THE GOVERNMENT will not
allow itself again to be tempted into arrests
such as grew out of the late bogus proclama
tion. View such proceedings as one may,
they only serve to impair the confidence of
the masses in the plain impartiality of the
Government. Had the operators of all the
telegraph offices leading out of Washington
been arrested, no complaint would have been
made. But to adjudge one line innocent
merely on the disavowal of its managers, and
to suspect another guilty, because its man
agers maintained what they imagined to be a
dignified silence, is a proceeding which can
not be forced on the endorsement of any
freeman. Indeed, the public mind is settling
down to the conviction that these arrests con
stituted an abuse of the power of the Gov
ernment to interfere with a corporate enter
prise for the benefit of a rival. Such impres
sions, when once rooted in the public faith,
are hard to eradicate, and never fail to bear
injurious fruit. We trust, then, for the dig
nity and respectability of the Government,
that such mistakes will not be allowed again

The Pennsylvania Reserves
Three years ago, what was called the Penn
sylvania Reserve Corps, constituted a body of
men of whom the Keystone State was justly
proud. At an hour of great peril—at a time
when the fate of the Republic quivered in the
uncertain balance of war—the Reserves went
forth, fifteen thousand strong, and in that
period of solicitude and uncertainty, they re
animated the failing hopes and almost panic
ized valor of the country. For three years
they participated in every battle fought by
the Army of the Potomac. In the front
constantly, they were where danger and death
were ever present. As their ranks were deci
mated, the - very flower of the young manhood
of the State volunteered to preserve their
maximum strength, so that instead of fifteen,
we may safely Write that at least twenty thov
sand men were absorbed, as five thousand,
from' time to time, were added to the
regiments forming the Reserves. The
State of Pennsylvania centered her pride in
this organization, not that she loved the sol
diers composing its-regiments any more than
she did the brave men mastered in her other
military organizations, but because the Re
serves to a greater degree represented the val
or and the military vigor of the State. But
alas for all this valor and vigor! Where are
they nolo ! Where are the brows for whom
our virgins were so lately twining the laurel
wreath? Where are the stalwart Men Who
stood in serried lines on so many well fought
battle-fields? We looked at least for.a remnant
of them, weeks ago, to return to their homes
on the clear expiration of their term of
enlistment. But where are these, our bath
ran now? Echo, amid the booming of
cannon, the groans of the dying, the
shrieks of the wounded and the curses
of the captured, answers wawa? The
Reserves perished on the late sanguinary field
where Grant struck his giant blow for free
dom. On the Rapidan and the Po, the pride
and glory of Pennsylvania found graves. Of
all'that proud host, scarcely a thousand men
are left—and thus the Reserves filled the time
so sternly allotted to them by the Govern
ment—and forevermore, they will be unable
to contend With any foe. They closed
their last fight in a glorious death. For them
the spirit-stirring drum and the shrill fife,
will henceforth have no animating sound.—
For them the mothers, and wives and sweet
hearts, with loving - welcomes on their lips,
will gaie into the broad road which leads
home, in vain. The virgin sits weeping with
her wreath of glory withered in her hands ;
and the fragrant buds with which she had
hoped to - wreath the brow of the hero, are
now scattered, faded, to the memory of the
dead! We do not complain. God maintain .
Our loyalty, in this • the hour of our over
whelming sadness! But who will dare to
prevent us from writing that stern was the au
thority which construed . the duty of the Re
serves—cold was the order which consigned
oar weary heroes—our battle-worn brothers to
their graves, before we could fold them to our
bosoms and their sisters print a last fervent
kiss upon their cheeks. 'But' Pennsylvania
will yet do honor to her Reserves, alike M the
remnant of the living who will come home to us,
and the dead whose graves mark the most famous
of the battle-fields of the Army of the Potomac !
Our. firmaxa or CONGRESS, the gallant Gen.
W. H.. Miller, is engaged in the heavy busi
ness of franking newspapers to his constitu
ents, which contain the most infamous abuse
of the President of the United States, and
which are also devoted to the advocacy of the
nomination of John C. Fremont as a candi
date for the Presidency. Miller is not the
only copperhead Congresirnan who is thus
abusing his franking privilege. His colleagues
of the same political faith are engaged in the
same work, and we see the fact noticed in our'
Western Union exchanges, that every copper
head Congressman is now flooding , his
trict with documents and newspapers advo
cating the nomination of John C. Fremont
for the Presidency. The object• of all these
efforts is to create schism and discord in the
ranks of the Union men of the country. Un
less this division is secured, the election of a
copperhead candidate for the Presidency will
be utterly:hopeless. Of course in any dirty
trick of this description, our. Congressman,
Miller, is anxious to do his full shate, but like
all his enterprises of enmity to his country,
and the efforts of those who lead him by the
nose, it will be a failure.

The Bogus Proclamation
Capture of the Forger.
The Proclamation Originated in New York.
NEW YORE, May 21.
The forger of the recent Proclamation pur
porting to have been issued by President Lin
coln, has been arrested and confesses that he
palmed it off on the journals here for gold and
His name is stated to be Howard, a newspa
The New York 21nies of to-thy contains the
following account of the arrest of the forger:
It turns out that J. Howard, jr., city editor
of the Brooklyn Eagle, is the person who
forged the Proclamation, and procured its
insertion in as many of the city newspapers as
he succeeded in duping. He has acknowledged
the fact, and was sent down last evening to
Fort Lafayette. He says he had no other mo
tive except to make a little money on the.
Stock Exchange, and that it never occurred .
to him that his performance could produce
any more important or serious effect.
It seems that something like a week ago
Howard consulted Mr. Kent, member of the
firm of Kent & Clapp, Brokers, as to the prob
able effect upon the market of a proclamation
calling for 300,000 more men. Mr. Kent gave
him his opinion, and sabsequontly Howard
showed him the draft of a proclamation
which he claimed 'to know, through secret
channels of intelligence at Washington, was
about to be issued, After the publication in
the World and Journal of Commerce on Wednes:
day morning, Mr: Kent at once identified the
published praClamation with the draft which
Howard had shown him, and gave information
of the circumstances to Gen. Dix. Howard
was arrested and brought to the General's
headquarters- yesterday afternoon, where
he at once made a full acknowledgment of his
agency in the matter, and exculpated all the
newspapers, which he succeeded in vietimiz-.
ing, from any connection with it, directly or
indirectly. He employed another person,
whose name we believe is Morrissey, to make
the copies which were sent to the press. It is
reported that several other persons were cog
nizant of the proceeding, and also made it the
basis of speculative operations in gold, But
Howard, we -understand, denies that any per
son was at all implicated with him in the
Howard had been connected in various ca
pacities with several of the city newspapers,
the Times and Tribune, among them, and had
thus acquired a knowledge of their routine of
business Which was of service to him in this
imposition upon them.
We understand that the order suspending
the publication of the TPorld and Journal of
Commerce has been revoked, and that their
issues will at once be resumed.

The report that a large number of wagons

out to be incorrect, arrising from the circum

they had gone , towards Washington, in com

Friday Morning, May 20-8 A, M. )
My dispatch yesterday informed you of the
attack made last evening upon the right wing
of our line, and the handsome manner in
which the rebels were driven back. The pur
pose of the enemy's, movement was undoubt
edly to discover what we had on our right. It
was made by the whole of Ewell's corps,
Rhodes' division leading. The enemy left
the vicinity of Spottsylvania Court House
about 1 p. m. yesterday, made a detour by the
west, crossed the Ny, and at about 5 o'clock
struck the Fredericksburg road on the
rear of our right thmk, breaking out
within three-quarters of a mile of the
headquarters 'of Generals Meade and
Grant. The only troops we had on the ground
at the time were a couple of regiments of Ty
ler's division of heavy artillery, which has
lately been brought from Washington, and is
composed of troops that were never before
under fire. Tyler soon brought up the re
mainder of his force and met the rebel attack,
driving the enemy back into the woods. Here
the rebels had formed their line of battle in
single line, with skirmishers in front. •Gen.
Tyler felt rather apprehensive at the work be
fore him, 'considering, the rawness of his
troops, and he experienced some difficulty in
getting them into formation. When once
under ,fire, however, they showed the utmost
bravery, - and audacitY surpassing even that of
old troops. in these murderous wood fights our
veterans have learned ally the devices that are
calculated t 9 shelter them from.fire, and will
lie doivii and take advantage:Off:nes, stumps,
etc.; but the heavy artillery braves, unused
to this kind of craft ; the moment they
saw the enemy r blazed away and rushed on.
In consequence of this their loss was quite
heavy, much more severe Alum 'reported by
inc in my dispatch of MSC night, and will
probably reach theusand in killed and
wounded. Perhaps it was also in conse
quence of 'our teavY artilleinnen's crude
courage that the rebels, unused to this
style of attack,= and not exactly under
standing it, gave way iu confusion, scatter
ing through the,woods. The honors of the
repulse of the rebels, whose boldlyrconceived
movement might, tinder different circunistan
ces, have produCed most disastrous results,
rests exclusively with Tyler's heav*tillery
division, then& Birney's division of the Sec
ond Corps, and ' - rawford's of the Fifth, were
afterward sent in in support, and formed line,
enabling Tyler to withdraw, after driviriglhe
enemy fey several miles, and clearing the Val
ley of the Ny. The confusion of the rebels
appears to hair& been very great, the major
portion of Rhode's division scattering in the
woods. Three hundred and fifty of them
were . picked up in the woOdi during ithe
night, and have just been brought into bead
quarters. The division of"raw troops feel
immensely tickled at their success. And
although their loss has been heavy it is felt
that the diminution of numbers is fully made
up by the increase of morale.
