NATIONAL UNION TICKET.
FOR WOE PRESIDENT. .
FOR THE AMENDMENT OF TUE CONSTITUTION
SOLDIERS) ,RIGHT TO VOTE.
Election Tuesday, Aug. 2, 1864.
We have had no telegraphic accounts of the
eying rebel raiders, since they crossed Ed
wards' Ferry on the Potomac. To-day we
learn from one of the mail agents' running
from the south, that a report prevails in Bal
timore, to the effect that the rebels were over
taken near Leesburg, Va.,'where a. sharp en
counter took place between our cavalry and
the rebels. • The result of this fight was the
capture of ono hundred prisoners and eighty
wagons heavily laden with plunder. If this
report be true, and we have every reliance in
the veracity of our informant, the blow is a
severe one to the rebels.
TH CONVITSION"IN MILITARY AF-
FAIRS AT THIS POST.
Imbecility and Ignorance Combined to
Thwart the Devotion of the People.
We are not afraid of the truth, either as it
relates to our duty to others or ourselves
And when the truth is uttered, it should be
spoken ,boldly, distinctly, without fear, favor
or affection. Hence, we. are impelled still
farther to refer to the titter imbecility and ig
norance which characterize the actions co
those who control the affairs in this. Military
Department, mid 'particularly at this post.
The blunders, the obstinacy, the entangling
construction of orders, the utter lack -of
knowledge of men, and the ridiculous refusal
to assume the least responsibility *ldle re
ceiving the liberal pay of the Government,
begin to impress the people with the fact that
there is a woful want of brain in one quarter
and a dangerous lack of honest devotion to
the success of the public service in another.
So far as the affairs at this post are concerned,
any old woman in the State, with sight suffi
cieht to turn the heel of a stocking, or strength
enough in her arms to prepare the batter for
a baking of slap-jacks, will manage thpm
far more Successfully and satisfactorily to the
GovernmOtt, than they are managed by the
officer at present in commend. We write this
frankly, with no desire to detract from the
personal merits of Col. Bomiord—with no
purpose to question his integrity as a
man or his honesty as an officer.—
Bat we do insist that he is utterly and palpa
bly unfit for the duties to which he has been
assigned—that he has those about him who
mislead and mistily him, if not :those, too,
who impose upon his weakness and timidity as
an executive officer, purposely and deliberately to
disgrace the Government in the estimation of the
people. Let us be well understood on this
point. If Col. Bomford is so blind as not to
see it, let us expose it to him in open broad
daylight, , that there are men in his aloe
whose political hatreds and passions now
lull so high, as not to hesitate a moment to
damn this Government, if by so doing they
could destroy an "A,bolition Administration."
These are the men who treat our brave volun
teers as if they were mercenaries. These are
the officers who rebuff the farmers of the
State when they march into the State Capital
in companies of fifties, sixties, seventies and
eighties ; who snub the bravest among our
brave when the bayonets of the enemy gleam
across the borders of the State, simply be
cause the organization of such companies does
not come within the strict letter of the Order
providing for the mustering of troops. Only
on Saturday, we understand, Col Bamford
refused to muster a company of eighty-two men;
and when this refusal became known, scores
of men left Harrisburg in disgust for their
homes. These men had all abandoned im
portant and necessary work at home,' to
hasten hither to the support and defence
of the Government. They did not come
to be trifled with by incompetent officers ;
and we can assure the Government, when
the estimates of the damage by the rebel raid
into Maryland and along the border of Penn
sylvania are made, it will be discovered that
the worst injury suffered by the Government
and the people, was that inflicted by . the in
competency, the indifference, and the freezing
hauleii of poppinjays suddenly invested
with sub-military authority. The people are
not blind to these facts, and we weuld be re
creantto our duty, if we ,failed to refer to
them in terms of independent and unmea
Another faot in connection with the .affairs
attending the attempted organization of the
Pennsylvania militia , for service on the border
and in Washington CitY, if necessary, is that
which relates to the blunder of the officer in
command of this Department. A call for a
thousand cavalrymen was issued. In response
companies and squads almost immediately
began to report for service, but when they did
so, the officers in command of such men were
blandly informed that the order had been
countermanded and that there were no horses
to mount them, and that henoe the troops
could not be received.
One whole company presented itself ready
Co be sworn in, but they were tattled off and
compelled to go home. This ni doing great
injustice to the men who,spereitiicir time and
money in raising companies. Itt would
be well for those in command in high places
:t• understand that those who now offer their
services to the Government, are men nnaccus
torned to trilling—men who repfesent in com

The honor of Pennsylvania is at stake in the
prtnaptness with which we are relieved of
these difficulties. All that we ask are men to
command us who know our people—soldiers
who are not fearful of assuming a responsi
bility. Pennsylvania has such men in the
service. 'Will -the President see that they are ,
detailed for duty within the State, and thus
relieve Gen. Couch and Col. Bomford from a
service that must be embarrassing to both ?
