WEDNESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 3, 1864.
NATIONAL UNION TICKET.
FOR VICE PRESIDENT,.
TICE APOLOGISTS OF 141A7. GEN. COUCH, IMF
ions to spare their favorite and rescue him
from the odium of the late catastrophy at
Chambersburg, claim that the War Depart
nient, and not he, is to blame for the calam--
ties of the people in the Cumberland Valley.
We would be loth to do Gen. Couch an injury,
as we are to invent excuses for the direlec
tion of the Head of a Department. But why
was it that Gen. Couch considered it unne
cessary for the Governor to call out the mi
litia—a fact patent to every manacquainted
with the doings of the Government=
Gov. Curtin applied to the War Department
for information as to whether the National
Government would pay the expense of equip
ping and subsisting the militia, if he would
call out such troops. The Department an
swered that the expense would be paid, pro
vided Gen. Couch would say that such a
force was necessary. The militia was not
called out, and the inference is fair, therefore,
that Gen. Couch did not consider that force
necessary. Still it is claimed that a few hun
dred militia would have saved Chambersburg
—and it is asserted by those who are anxious
to hold the National Government responsible
for the loss of Chambersburg, that twd regi
ments of militia called out for a hundred
days to defend the border, were ordered to
Washington. Why were they ordered to
Washington? Because Gen. Couch, like too
many other regulars has a contempt for militia,
and because he did not consider Thal there was
any necessity for the services of the militia in the
Cumber/and Valley. If the Government does
not desire to be seriously injured In this con
nection, it should at once institute a thorough
investigation of all the facts connected with
the command in the Department of the Sus
quehanna. If this is not done immediately,
popular feeling in the Cumberland Valley will
be so moulded, as to expend its resentment
entirely on the government.
DISGRACEFUL.--A correspondent of the
Lancaster Examiner says, that when the con
firmation of the news of the burnlitrof Cham
bersburg arrived in the city on Sunday morn
ing, some of the principal copperheads were
so overjoyed that they hired a room and went
on a regular spree. Comment on such out
rageous conduct is unnecessary. Men who
are so dead to every manly or humane prin
ciple, as to rejoice in so. fearful a calamity,
are worse than degraded. They are beasts
who should be kicked out of the way of every
Nor FAIR TO A USEFUL MAN.--We protest
against the unfairness of the Harrisburg cor
respondent of the Philadelphia Press, who, in
his reference to the "modesty," "dignity,
"martial bearing," and "gallant appearance"
of the military dignitaries who surround Gov.
Curtin, passes over our friend, CoL Sam. B.
Thomas. Col. Thomas, however, like all
men who do their full duty, seldom gets out
side credit; but the evident object of the spe
cial of the Press to overslaugh him, deserves,
at least, this protest in his favor.
Tnx Secretary of War has decided that if
the muster-out of a regiment is delayed be
yond the date of the expiration of its term of
service, by its detention in the field or other
wise by the Government, the men are en
titled to pay up to the day of the actual
muster-out; but if the delay is occasioned
by any action of the members of the regi
ment, they are entitled to pay up to the
date of actual expiration of the term of
service only, as shown by the muster-in
Ma. Gam Corm, in the opinion of the
Lancaster Evening. Express„ although an ex
cellent division commander in the field, has
shown himself to be utterly incompetent to
command a Department such us that of the
Susquehanna. The people long since lost
confidence in him, and a change has beoome
an absolute necessity. General Cadwallader
is a man who will inspire confidence and bring
order out of confusion, without strangling it
THE REASON - E THE. COPPERHEADS so
strenuously opposed the amendment to the
Constitution extending the elective franchise to
the soldier was, that they desired to degrade
the white man to the level of the negro. The
abject was to disfranchise the soldier by legal
positive enactment, and thus the copperhead
leaders would succeed really in making this
a "nigger war." Remember these facts,
white man, until the coming elections in Oc
tober and November.
THE DELAY IN THE MEETING Or THE CHICAGO
Cony - maim was explained to us this morning
by an outspoken copperhead, who gave as a
reason, that it was anticipated by their lead
ers that the rebels would succeed, when the
Confederate Government would gobble up all
the States and Jeff Davis act as President for
life, of a Union erected on the basis of riegrQ
slavery. Pretty good reason, this—but bad
result to wait for.
Ts= Enter WARD, the strongest Democratic
ward in the City. of Harrisburg, gave thirty
fourmajority against the right of the soldier i
to vote. At this poll the copperhead police
of the ward openly and actively engaged in
opposing the "first amendment." Every
other ward in the city gave the amettdmerita
THE ENEMIES OF THE SOLD/E/i DE.
Pennsylvania Sends Greeting to Her tic
roes in the Won
The result Of the election, yesterday, on
the amendments to the Constitution, turned
specially on that feature of, the issue which
involved the right .of a citizen in the field
serving as a soldier, to the exercise of all the
elective franchises he enjoyed before he took
up arms in defence of his country. While
the other amendments were important, the
copperhead leaders thoroughly organized to
defeat the proposition to confirm to the soldier
the elective franchises he enjoyed as a citizen.
There was a double -object to be gained by
the rejection of this proposition. The cop
perhead leaders are thoroughly convinced that
when a man is willing to peril his life in de
fence of his Government he will not long hesi
tate to poll his vote in its support. This con
viction contained the secret of their opposi
tion to the amendment of the Constitution
guaranteeing this right; and thus inspired,
every copperhead organ in the Common
wealth, every copperhead orator, the copper
head State Central Committee, every ignorant
ward politician, the menials of every copper
head wielding municipal power, the depraved
and the cowardly who have been assailing the
vitals of the nation while engaged in a death
struggle with traitors—all these influences
combined and intensified with the peculiar ha
tred for that which is pure in politics and just
in government, made one common and gigan
tic effortfor the rejection of the Conititutional
amendment extending the elective franchise
to the soldier. Never before, in the history
of Pennsylvania politics, has any party lied
as villainously as did the copperheads to de
feat this amendment. Never before did any
set of men as desperately and malevolently
seek the perversion of the truth. The issue
involvedlhe life of the copperhead organiza
tion, and its leaders fought it like desperadoes
with halters about their necks. They had no
appeals to make to truth. The record was
against them—the plain letter of the law was
their condemning witness —and therefore they
fought knowing they were wrong, determined
if possible to triumph in the wrong. The re
sult has been the overwhelming defeat of
these corrupt politicians--and if the death
knell of any party ever was rang by the bal
lots of a free people, that knell was heard in
the ballot box of every election district in the
State ; yesterday.
—By her vote yesterday, Pennsyliania
sends greeting to her heroes in the field.
• That vote has established the citizenship of
every Pennsylvanian who fights beneath the
stars and stripes, wherever they float, whether
it is over the deck of our men-of-war in
far off seas, or above the serried lines of our
armies fighting for the right in distant climes.
This greeting will inspire with new courage
our keroes at Petersburg and Atlanta. It will
convince the soldier that the nationality, for
which he struggles and imperils life and limb,
is his own to control and direct. Never before
have we recorded a political victory with
larger feelings of gratitude for the people by
whom it was achieved. It confirms, unques
tionably, the claims of a people's ability for
self government. And what is most glorious,
it indicates a determination on the part of the
masses, that the wretches in this Corernon
wealth who sympathize with treason shall
not again, hereafter, triumph at the ballot
Coining to a : Manly Sense of What is
The Hollidaysburg Standard, on many
points at issue between the traitors and the
Government, thoroughly sympathizing with
treason, has been touched with a sense
of what is just, while contemplating the hor
rible fate of Chambersburg. Its sentiments
are worthy the careful study of other copper
head organs who have endeavored to exhibit
how meanly indifferent they could be to the
suffering of the people in the Cumberland
Valley. The Standard says:
Her citizens have been harassed time and
again by rebel invasions, and now, when they
had every reason to believe they were safe
from further molestation, a band of ragged,
unwashed, brutal • assassins swarm into their
town and with the savage glee and yells of In
dians, sack, pillage and burn two hundred
and fifty houses, and a thousand men, wo
men and children are made homeless,.
homeless paupers, and some perish in the
flames. It reads ke the destruction of the
cities and towns of the middle ages, when
savage tribes overran Europe—like the demo
lition of the Spanish American cities by the
roving buccaneers of that licentious day.—
Early and McCausland have linked their
names with undying infamy, and will hereaf
ter only serve to shoN what fiends born men
may be these christan days, and . how much
of hell may burn in the human heart. A
fearful retribution must overtake such crime.

Outrages on Soldiers in Vork Borough
A. correspondent writing from York, gives
a detailed account of the repeated outrages
which have been perpetrated on the soldiers in
the U. S. Hospital at that post, by the policee
of the borough. It is our rule never to refer to
matters of such seriousness, unless we have
the names of the parties charged with the out
rages as well as of those outraged. If uur
corresPondent communicates the proper
names, we insure him the guilty cowardsshall
have the castigation for which he appeals.. We
have as little mercy for a cepporhead official
brutally treating a soldier when in his power,
as for the original viper itself. Let us have
names, and you shall have the exposure.

AFFAIRS ON THE BATTLE GROUND
Rebel 01Niers 'on the timid.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 3.
A letter from the headquarters of the army
dated August Ist, r. m., says:
A flag of truce was allowed this • morning
from five to nine o'clock, to bury the dead
and bring off the wounded. Very few were
found alive, the most who were living yes
terday having died last night--notmore than
a dozen were brought in, and few of therm
are expected to recover.
The ground in front of the centre-fora dis
tance of about 200 yardswas' thickly•coverfid
with dead, the greater poition being colored.
I counted 180 of the latter and about 45
whites, all of whom were buried on the spot.
The reason of the great disparity between
white and colored troops, was the fact that
the fire from the enemy's guns on both flanks
was concentrated on this ground after the
whites had charged across it, and when the
colored division crossed the spot, they were
actually mown down with cannister, and also
when they retreated they fell in dozens, the
Sharpshootera being unable to disturb the

A special correspondent of the Star writing

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2.
Mrs. Mary R. Sawyer, convicted some time
since of aiding the rebellion, and sentenced
to the Fitchburg prison during the rebellion,
left here las‘ night for that point.
_Brig. Gen. Torbett, of the Cavalry Corps of
the Army of the Potomac, is in the city.
The regiment which was blown up by Gen.
Grant's. mine in the fort in front of-Peters
burg, was the Ist South Carolina, formerly
of Jenkins' old brigade, and was commanded
by Col. Hagood. At the time of the explo
sion -ft nun - Meted hut 250 men, having been
badly cut up in-previous service.
The Star says, we learn from a well in
formed party who left Charleston a few weeks
age, that - the harbor of that place is garri-.
soned ,by the following rebel troops: South
Carolina artillery, Col. Frederick; Ist South
Carolina infantry, Col. D. Tervillo, all regu
lars; 3d Georgia and 48th Mississippi. In the
interior of South Carolina there are no troops,
but a few small detachments of various com
mands, acting as provost guards...
An apparently well informed deserter from
Lee's army who has arrived within our lines,
says that the only rebel troops operating in
the valley are those of Early's and Breokin
ridge's commands. Early's troops were first
sent up' the valley, and on the eve of starting
they drew rations for eighteen thousani men.
Bre eltitaridge's command followed, which num
bered about ten thousand men. There is no
truth, he says, in the rumor that the raiders.
had been joined by-A P. Hill's corps, for up
to Thursday last Hill's troops were in the
entrenchments at Petersburg.
The published 'statement that Anderson's
and Heth's divisions were detached from be
fore Petersburg and sent to Richmond to look
after Hancock, leaving A. P. Hill's corps
within the defences at Petersburg, is also in
correct. He says Heth's and Anderson's divi
sions cbmpose Hill's corps, and they could
not have been sent away, for Hill was certainly
in the defences of Petersburg .at the time of
the explosion of Grant's mine.
