Intel Form of the Ballots for the tionstitu.
tional Amendirornts
It is well that our friends throughout thf
State should properly understand the legs
form of the ballots to be used in voting to)
the Constitutional amendnienta. We submit
a ticket in favor of the three amendments, as
provided for by the law:
. First Amendment.
Second Amendment.
Third Amendment.
—Theis) tickets are to be folded so aF
to enclose the words "for the amendment,'
leaving outside for perusal as the ballot if
distributed to the boxes, the words "first
amendment." All the amendments are im
portant. and ft should become the duty of
every man truly devoted to the Union and the
Commonwealth, zealously to labor for theb
endorsement at the ballot box.
The Electoral Ticket.
It would be well for our loyal cotemporarie•
carefully to examine and revise the electors
ticket at the head of their columns, so the
the name of each elector may not only cor
redly appear in every organ of the cause, but
that the ballot may also be properly printed.
We have already corrected . , - several errors iv
the names of these electors. We are now
called on to make still another correction.
The name of the elector in the Thirteenth
District, as it appears in many of our notetn
poraries, is printed Elias W. Hall, when 1t
should be tutss W. Ham. We trust that
this correction will be properly attended t.
by the journals having the ticket at the heat
of their columns.' • •
Soldiers' National Cemetery.
We have received a copy of the _report o'
the select committee, made to the last Legia
'attire. relative to the proceedings at the dedi
cation of the Soldiers' National Cemetery at
Gettysburg. The report embraces the .name.
of those buried on that now sacred and classic
soil, with diagrams of the battle ground and
the cemetery, accompanied by the matchlis
and eloquent oration of Edward Everett, de
livered on the occasion of the dedication.
Altogether The document is a valuable one,
and in its typography reflects great credit on
the State printers, as it has been produced in
the very highest stele of the art.
The. Legislative. Nominee in Beaver
We cannot refrain from giving expression to
our satisfaction at the nomination of Col. M
S. Quity, as the Union candidate to repreieo
Deemer county in the Legislature. His great
Popularity at home, and the fine reputation
he is making here as an executive officer,
combined with his unquestioned high attain,

Is a Axed fact. We anticipate for him, there

tecause we. still admire and honor Mr.
3hase. Let us at least le fair to the
31nntry and its creditors. History, some day,
vill show that Mr.' Chase committed three
;mat blunders: First, when he abandoned the
sale of the five-twenty and put into the
narket the ten-torty bonds. By this action he
treated an unnecessary panic in the uncalled
for redaction Of the interest from six to five
ter cent. He might have contained the sale
f the five-tvrefity - bonds. The loan was pop
liar and successful. It was emphatically a
mple's loan, the laborers and work

if this loan was suspended, and one at

treated in the financial world. It was the
first opening the enemies of the country had
o attack the credit: of the Government. At.
come and abroad it 'created mercenary suspi
3ion and painfulApubt. Then followed the
rise of gold in a rapid, augmentation of• price;
or rather then ensued a depreciation of our
Japer currency, by, the enhancement of all
the prodnots of business, land. lobar and
living. Bat even these embarrassments could
lave been conquered, had Mr. Chase not
vielded to" the unwise ' counsels of those
around him; and when he asked Congress for

We trust that the inccesosor of Mr. Chase
will be benefited by the palpable mistakes into
which he fell, and that in the management of

willing to yield him full honor. Bat we still
chink that it was time he resigned, and that in

A. farmer whe came in this aftornoon from
the neighborhood of Pooleseille, .states that
the rebels stole over 5,000 head of 'cattle fr( m
the farmers of Montgomery county,
1,000 horses and a large 'loather of sheen
and hogs, 44; say . nothing of poultry, which
they cleaned , out completell: .

Frederick and Baltimore coistantly sent herds
of Cattle and horses across the river.
The rebels did little damage to the growing
corps, but took all the hay they could find.
Several hundred conscripts, collected be
•twien Frederick and Rockville, were marched
into Poolesville,on Sunday under guard.
The main force of the rebels crossed at Ed
ward's Ferry on Wednesday morning; the rest
at Muddy Branch, Nolan's and White's Fel ,
ries. later in the day. They did not hate
'much artillery with them.
While their main infantry force was lying
in front cf fortifications on the north side of
Washington, the cavalry, officered or 'guided
principally by Marylanders, was scouring
every nook and corner of the country in
search of live stock, which they coveted more
than any other property.
' Our informant, who is a yery careful man.
thinks that not less than tent thousand head
of oxen, cows, horses, mules, beside large
droves of sheep and bogs, were driven across
'the Potomac by the rebels, within the three
or four days they were threatening Washing
ton. Their infantry was mounted as quickly
as-the stolen horses were brought in.
The rebels to use his Own language, came
into Maryland a ragged and barefooted band
and went out looking like , gentlemen.
It has not yet been definitely"ascertained
whether the rebels carried off any ,of the Val
uable correspondence belonging to the Hon.
