WEDNESDAY EVENING, JULY 20, 1864
NATIONAL UNION TICKET.
FOR NICE PRESIDENT.
Dont Forget to be Assessed
Friday next, July 22d, will be last day for
assessment to entitle a citizen to vote at the
ensuing election on the 2nd day - of August.
It is important that every vote be polled for
the three amendments to be endorsed at that
election, and we therefore earnestly hope that
our friends will see that no ballot is lost by
the negleot of the voters to be assessed
We continue to receive information con
cerning the flying rebels who raided with such
dire havoc in Maryland and , on the borders
of Pennsylvania ten days ago. Heavily la
den with plunder the rebels are straggling
to reach their entrenchments at Petersburg,
to afford relief to the armies that are now suf
fering for want of food behind the mud banks
defending that city. On Monday last a party
of these raiders were overtaken at Snicker's
Gap by General Crook. He at once fell upon
their wagon trains, scattering their escort in all
directions, but these being quickly rallied re
turned to the assault with all the fury of men
defending immense treasure. General Crook
fought gallantly for almost an hour, defeating
the rebels, taking many prisoners and cap
turing over three hundred wagons, all of
which are reported to have been heavily la
den with grain and such' other plunder as
the rebels for ed from the people of Mary
land. So thoroughly were the rebels defeated
that they could not carry their rounded from
the field or bury their dead. These were left
for burial and care by our troops.
The Education of Soidles , Orphans
In appointing Thomas H. Burrowes, late
Superintendent of Common Schools of Penn
sylvania, a commissioner to prepare a plan
and superintend the expenditure of the money
devoted by the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany, for the education of the orphan children
of soldiers, Gov. Curtin has acted wisely
and judiciously, as no mrtn in the State is bet
ter fitted by experience and sound practical
ability, for the position assigned him, than
the appointee. In accepting the appoint
ment, Mr. Burrowes submitted a plan to the
Governor, for carrying into effect the objects
of the donation, which has been approved
and accepted. We have heretofore alluded
to the manner in which this money is to be
applied to the education of the orphans of
our heroes, but as Mr. Burrowes has prepared
a plan by which the disbursement will . be sys
tematically managed, we deem it important
that our readers should be fully advised of the
same. As soon as we find room for this plan,
it shall appear in the Trszon.tru. It is a
document of great interest to the widows and
the orphans of Pennsylvania's gallant dead,
and hence it has claims on our columns which
we do not feel like postponing too long. .
Important to Election Officers.
Some doubt and dispute having arisen as
to the officers qualified to hold the approach
ing special election on the constitutional
amendments, we have been at some pains to
consult the proper authorities and arrive at a
true decision on the subject. By a reference
to Purdon's Digest, pages 370 and 371, and
the foot notes thereto, it will be seen that
election officers are annual officers and that the
new board, namely those elected last spring,
must hold the special election in August next..
Any election officer, according to the opinion of
some of our best lawyers.Ecan apply to 'be
sworn in the day after the election naming
him as such officer. The election officers
chosen last spring may be all sworn prior to,
or on the second day of August, and thus be
come qualified to hold the special elections at
The Public Debt.
According to official statement for the week
ending July 12, just published, the total

interest, $73,752,554 48.
Election in Tennessee.
Gov. Johnson has issued a proclamation or
dering an election in Tennessee for the pur
pose of bringing that State within the pro
vision of the United States Constitution,
which guarantees to each State a Republican
form of Government. He has fixed the time
some months ahead, for the election is to be
held on the first Saturday of next March. A
complete precinct, county and State organi
sation is to be effected, and the Governo;
proclaims that the enemies of the Union
will not be permitted to vete or to hold office.

Recruiting in Revolted Stater.
We alluded to the fact, yesterday, that Gov.
Curtin was prepared to appoint the agents
provided for in the act of Congress, for the
purpose of recruiting, to fill quotas of locali
ties in the North, from the *people in the re
volted States. At first glance, the importance
of this notice may not have been fully under
stood, but when it is known that the object
designed is to afford the people in districts
subject to the draft, an opportunity to fill
their quotas, etc., the necessity of securing a
reliable agent to perform such work, will at
once be seen. We quote the act of Congress
on this subject:
SEC. 12. And be it further enacted; That it
shall be lawful for the Executioe of any of the
States to send recruiting agents into any of
the States declared in rebellion, except the
States of Arkansas, Tennessee and Louisiana,
to recruit volunteers under any call under the
provisions of this act, who shall be credited
to the State and to the respective subdivions
thereof, which may procure the enlistment.
Remarking on this section, the Pittsburg
Gazette says that it will be observed that it
shall be lawful only for the executive of any of
' the States to send recruiting agents into the
rebel States. That is to say, no agents can
I enlist volunteers for any of the States unless
appointed by the Governor thereof. But, the
words of the clause quoted do not prohibit
the appointment, by the Governor of any
given State, of agents for any portion of that
State. We infer, therefore, that, if the citi
zen sof any enrolling district or sub-district
should request the Governor of the State in
which that district or sub-district is located to
appoint an agent to recruit exclusively for it,
and at the exclusive expense of those citizens,
there is nothing in the law to prevent him
from acceding to their request. Indeed, in
our own State we presume that this is the only
policy that can be adopted, for the Governor
is not authorized to pay bounties for volun
teers to be credited to the State at large, and
to wait for the authority to be granted by the
Legislature which is to meet on the 23d of
August would be to wait until the days of
grace have passed.
—We announced in the TELEGELPIL yester
day, that Gov. Curtin was ready to appoint
such agents, and we now urge it upon the at
tention of the people of Harrisburg, to take
the necessary steps for the appointnient of a
person in every way qualified for the work .
To those sulAistricts which have raised. or
propose to raise bounty funds. the appoint
ment of a reliable agent is of the highest im
portance. We commend this subject to the
attention of those sub-districts which have
raised, or which propose to raise bounty
funds. Every man recruited in a rebel State
is a man saved at home. And the sooner
Pennsylvania agents are put in the field, the
b-tter. Agents of some of the Eastern States
are already on their way west and south. Let
Harrisburg not be behind her sister cities in
the facilities afforded by the law for the filling
up of her quota in the coming draft for five
hundred thousand additional troops.

him. He was ordered to pursue him to Co

A dispatch from General Smith to General
Washburn, received to-day, says we have met
8. D. Lee, Forrest and Walker, at Tupelo,
and whipped them badly.on three different
days. Our loss is small compared with that
of the rebels. I bring back everything in
good order, and nothing was lost.
A scout, since arrived at Lagrange, reports
the enemy's loss at 2,500, and that their de
feat was overwhelming. •
It is also stated that the rebel Gen. Faulk
ner and Col, Forrest were wounded. Gen.
Forrest was wounded in the foot, and his
horse equipments captured.
From other sources I learn that Smith met
Forrest near Pontotoc, ou Wednesday, the
13th, and fought him on that di , and also on
Thursday and Friday, driving him below Tu
pelo, whipping him badly in five different
battles. Our loss is said to be less than 300,

FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC.
Quiet Prevailing Along the Lines.
DESERTION FROM THE REBEL RANKS.
The Rebels Short of Provisions.
WASHINGTON, July 20
Information received from the headqua r -
ters of the Army of the Potomac, dated July
19th, states that the usual quiet still prevails
along the lines, and were it not for the sound
of an occasional gun and some picket firing at
a few points, one would suppose that no en
emy was within miles of us.
A sergeant and his squad came in this
morning, and all report that thousands are
ready to leave as fast as they find an opportu

Georgia, Florida and Alabama regiments, and
an officer of a regiment from the former

day or two• since and reported that if his
company was not soon relieved he would have
none to relieve, as they would have all gone

lines, as they say they have no chance to get
through without running the risk of being
shot—the negroes being so constantly on the
alert, but they are coming in at other points
daily in squads.
They state that they are very short of pro
visions, particularly vegetables, and seem glad
enough when they get into our lines, strict
orders being given that they shall not hold in
tercourse with our men on the picket, or ex
change papers; and one fellow the other day,
who came boldly over and brought a paper
with him, was caught and made to eland and
wave the paper back and forth for an hour as
a punishment. An attack from the enemy
has been expected for the past two days.
Last night, from what the deserters reported,
it was looked for as certain, but no demon
stration was made.
It has looked like rain all the afternoon,
but none has fallen yet and the dust oontin

A spacial dispatch from Nashville says the
report about Atlanta being occupied by our
troops is without foundation.
All kinds of rumors are afloat regarding the
evacuation of Atlanta. Reports say that dur

the enemy has been enabled to get away his
valuables, but in opposition to this it is well
known that they had been sent weeks ago to

The latest official information from (kn.

The movement was accomplished with such
celerity as to take the enemy by surprise, and,
therefore, the resistance to his advance was
feeble on the part of the rebel cavalry.
Our cavalry was at once sent to operate on
the railroad of Decatur, one of the objects
being to cat off the communication between
Atlanta and Augusta, thus preventing the re
moval of stores to the latter place, and John
ston from being reinforced. Our main army
was within 10 or 12 miles of Atlanta, and all
its operations were progressing in [the high
