at the nomination of McClellan for tht Pres

bystander the object of the salute. When
told, the soldier quaintly replied that Meelel=

how gallant soldiers do love "Little Mac."

of our city tax collectors communicated to us
yesterday, during a casual conversation, the
gratifying fact that seven out of every ten of
the soldiers who left this city, made it their
business to pay their school tax before march
ing hence. Many of those thus paying in
deed called the collector, who gives us the
gratifying intelligence, to the ranks, and then
cheerfully paid their taxes. This is alike hon

education which they thus cheerfully sup
E XTENSION OF THE CA.FITOL.—As S001:1 as the
Board of Commissioners can be convened,the
contract for extending the Capitol will be let,
and work immediately commenced. It is al
most confidently predioted that the plan of Mr.
Simon, an eminent architect of thietity i will be
adopted, and that he will be charged with the
erection of the extension. Tho other plans
presented, proposed extending the building
ever the open spaces respectively, between,
the Capitol and the Executive department, on
the one side, and the Land Office on the other.
Under no circumstance can the Oonstnission
ere be induced to accept such a pian. The
Plan of Mr. Simon, as is well knowii, proposes
to extend the building from the rear, with
a front on State street, which will'add- to . the
appearance of the whole building, and afford
convenience ample for all the usee needed.--

Tint Cotsen, sae xas Botany Queszton.—
This morning Judge Pearson decided that,
according to the terms of the city charter,
the Mayor and Council have no authority to
levy a tax upon our ditizens, or to borrow
money for bounty purposes, (as provided in
the recent ordinance passed,) as the charter
expressly limits the amount that may be bor
rowed to $200,000, and the greater portion
of that sum has 'already been obtained by
loan. This puts an end to the payment 'of
bounties as far as the Council is concerned.
It is, however, conceded that the election
boards of the various wards have authority,
by the State law, to levy taxes for bounty pur
A SHARP Dopas.—The copperheads, in or
der to defeat the Union candidate for Council..
in the Sixth ward, resorted to a dodge which
promised to result well, but signally failed.
When the Union men nominated David Mum
ma, Esq., the copperheads avowed their de
termination to present no candidate, and to
support Mr. M., inasmuch as Dr. Egle had
been supported by both partied last spring.
Yet, in the face of this avowal, 'they met in
secret conclave, on Monday night, and nomi
nated John Stimler for Council. Secresy was
however, observed, and it wa s not until near
noon of yesterday that the Union men dis
covered that the opposition were not voting
for Mr. Mumma. Every co pperhead was at
the polls and voted. Yet, notwithstanding
this piece of treachery, threy were defeated;
and Mr. Mumma was triumphantly elected.
As an act 'of meatmees this dodge of the Cops.
is unparalleled, unless it he by the "Sons of
Liberty" and other organized bands of the
enemies of. the Administration.

Friends.—The Hun" tingdon American gives an
amusing amount of the troubles of a female
Secesh, on her way from Bedford Springs,
who stopped at one of the Huntingdon hotels
to wait for the Eastward train. While at the
hotel she used very treasonable language and
behaved in a manner that indicated her pro
clivities. The girls employed about the house
were incensed at her, and retaliated by treat
ing her to a concert of Union songs—among
others singing in full chorus, "We'll hang
Jeff. Davis on a sour apple tree," tto. This
caused Secesh to rave, whereupon the girls
struck up "Rally round the Flag." Secesh
was rampant and declared that she would
rather die than walk under that flag. To test
her, the girls procured a large U. S. Flag,
locked the door which opened on the street,
and when the train was coming, hung the
flag over the main entrance by which Secesh
was compelled to make her exit. She soon
made her appearance, saw the flag, and passed
out under it, to the infinite merriment of the
girls, who waved it over her head as she de
parted, accompanying the action with • the
chorus "Down with the traitor and up with
Our Next Congressman.
ME. EDITOR :—Our County Convention for
the nomination of a Union ticket, to be sup
ported at the October election, will assemble
in this city on Tuesday next. A Congress
man is to be elected in this District. Who
shall we nominate? This is a quesion im
portant to the people. A number of candi
dates are named in the several counties com
posing the district. Dauphin oounty proposes
three or four, among whom is Wm. d. Romig
sox, of Dauphin. Mr. ROBINSON was the
nominee of Dauphin county in 1862. Had he
received the nomination of the district by the
Conferees, he would most probably have been
elected, and we should have been saved the
mortification of a disastrous defeat, and the
district would not have been misrepresented,
as it is, by an unscrupulous and venomous
I Mr. Robinson is a gentleman of fair abili
ties, honest as steel, and can be relied on as
faithful and true to the cause of the Union.
His nomination would be very popular, and
bis election certain.
Mr. Patterson iss defeated in 1862, mainly
on account of MS small vote polled. The
election was peornitted to go by default. This
will not be the case this fall. A fall vote will
be polled, and a full vote in this district is a
certain victory. Ia this hour of her peril, the
country needs the services of true men. Let
us take care that'we are not again shamefully
misrepresented in the 14th Congressional
District of Pennsylvania. DAUPHIN.

raSecretary of the Treasury gives notice
t subscriptions will be received for Cou
pon Treasury Notes, payable three years from
August 15th, 1864, with semi-annual interest
at the rate of seven and three-tenths per cent.
per annum—principal and interest both to be
paid in lawful money.
These notes will be convertible at the option
of the holder at maturity into six per cent.
gold bearing bonds, payable not less than five
nor more than twenty years from their date,
as the GtSvernment may elect. They will be
issued in denominations of $5O, $lOO, $5OO,
$l,OOO and $5,000, and all subscriptions must
be for fifty dollars or some inultiple of fifty
The notes will be transmitted to the owners
free of transportation chariges as soon after
the receipt of the original Certificates of De
posit as they can be prepared.
As the notes draw interest from August 15,
persons making deposits subsequent to that
date must pay the interest accrued from date
of note to date of deposit.
Parties depositing twenty-five thousand dol
lars and upwards for these notes at any one
time will be allowed a commission •of one
quarter of one per cent, which will be paid
by the Treasury Department upon the receipt
of a bill for the amount, certified to by the
officer with whom the deposit was made. No
deductions for commissions must be made
from the deposits.
Special Advantages of this Loan.
IT is A NAT/ONAZ SAVDTC/S Bann, offering a
higher rate than any other, and best security.
Any savings bank which pays its depositors
in U. S. Notes,Considers that it is paying
in the best circu lating medium of the country,
and it cannot pay in anything better, for its
own assets are either in government securities
or in notes or bonds payable in government
It is equally convenient as a. temporary or
permanent investment. The notes can al
ways be sold for within a fraction of their
face and accumulated interest, and are the
best security with banks as collaterals for dis
Convertible into a 6 per Cent. 640 Geld Bond.
In addition-to the very liberal interest on
the notes for three years, this privilege of
conversion is now worth about three per cent.
per annum, for the current rate for 6-20 Bonds
is not less than nine per what. premium, and be
fore the war the premium on six per cent.
S. stocks was over twenty per cent. It will
be seen that the actual profit on this loan, at
the present market rate, is not less than ten
per cent. per annum.
its Exemption from State or Municipal
But aside from all the advantages we have
enumerated, a special act of Congress exempts
ali bonds and Treasury notes from /peal taxation.
On the average, this exemption is worth about
two per cent. per annum, according to the
rate of taxation in various parts of the country.
It is believed that no securities offer so
great inducements to lenders as those issued
by the Government. In all other forms of
