Attend to the Assessments.
We cannot too urgently impress our friends
w!th the importance of attending to the as
sessments in the different election districts.
The men who are now in the field, giving
their time and periling their lives in defence
of the Government, must not lose their votes
by any neglect of their friends at home to
have them assessed. Have your son, brother
or neighbor assessed without delay, pay his
county tax of ten cents, and send the evidence
thereof at once to him by mail—together with
the Union ticket, or a list of the Union nom
inations. Careful attention to this matter will
give us hundreds of votes in Dauphin coun
ty that will otherwise be los - . Union men!
do at least this mach for the brave men who
are fighting the battles of the Government.
The rourteruth Congressional District.
The Conference of the Fourteenth Congres
sional District, composed of the counties of
Northumberland, Snyder, Union, Juniata and
Dauphin, met at Sunbury to-day. The names

- Which Wlll Ton Give?
Lieut -General Unconditional Surrender
Grant asks the country for a hundred thou
sand musket bearing men, and promises, ii
they are given him, to make peace for us by
crashing the rebellion out of existence.
Major.-Gen. George B. M'Clellan asks the
country for two million votes, and promises,
if they are given him, to make peace for us
by bargaining with the rebellion, and chang
ing the Constitution to snit traitors.
Citizens, which will you give ?
Four Strsrrza, that has so long withstood
the most terrific ordnance fire ever directed
against any similar object, is, it is reported by
persons just from Charleston, rapidly se k ttling,
and in a very short time it was believed the
water would enter the lower tier of embra
sures. It is a fact well known to our engi
neers that this fortification was erected upon
quite a thin point of sand, which strata of
sand rested upon a soft, pulpy mass of de
Tas new Democracy: Not two-thirds of the
delegates to the Chicago Convention were
Democrats eight years ago. In Pennsylvania,
we find the prominent leaders of the new
Democracy to be snob men as William B.
Reed of Philadelphia, who is even ahead of
M'Clellan in his zeal for arbitrary arrests, as
he ordered the arrest while lie was District
Attorney, of an entire Democratic club. Now
Reed is engaged in howling over the arbitrary
arrest of traitors.
/11'Cuumart's chances go down with the
rebel strongholds. As the rebel strongholds
fall, Lincoln's chances rise. The success of
ourarms is disaster to the Chicago nominees.
The failure of our arms and the success of
the Copperheads are synonymous. The Na
tional Flag and the National Union nominees
go down together.
Ova copperhead cotemporaries are urging
the immediate formation of " Dem c alio
Clubs." We suggest that it is inappropriate
to name buela organizations dabs, it
is to be concerned therein. SPADES would be
a more significant name fur the conclaves.
„ GOD'. country,” is the beautiful and ap
propialatte name given by asn.-Sherman's sol
diers to the free States i* which they were
burs 1114 PM&
Let the . Soldiers near.
Without the vote of the soldiers no man
can be elected President. The men who are
in the field, contending with armed traitors,
have the decision of the coming Presidential
contest in their hands. Knowing this fact,
the Democratic leaders opposed the extension
of the right of the elective franchise to the
soldiers in the field, in every State wher
this question was submitted to the people. In
view of this fact, how can a soldier or a
friend of the bleeding heroes, Tote for candi
dates who are directly in the control of those
thus opposing the entraiachisemenr of the
volunteer and regular soldier? And in ad
dition to the opposition to the rights of the
soldier to vote, by the Democratic leaders,
George H. Pendleton, the Chicago nominee
for the Vice Presidency, is the man who pub
licly " thanked God th .t he had never voted or
given a dollar in support of the lea•, or in the
payment of .44. b sokliers." The election
of such a man, of course, would be highly
acceptable to the traitors. Now, if McClellan
should die, or be put out of the way by some
Southern assassin, Pendleton would become
President in his stead. Then the traitors
would have everything in their hands as com
pletely as if Jeff Davis himself were in the
Presidential chair. This is an event by no
weans unlikely to happen in case of the elec
tion of the Chicago ticket.
Government Credit Improving.
Gold is falling and the credit of the Gov
ernment is daily improving. These indications
point as well to to the triumph of the Policy in
operation to crush rebellion as they do to the
speedy termination of the war. If that policy
can be sustained for a few weeks longer, the
position of the Government will be so strength
ened, as A render any future effort for its
subversion impossible. Nothing could now
be so fatal to the future prospects of the
nation„ as a change of authorities. By a
hange of administrations, a year hence would
discover the nation in a worse condition than
ever—the rebellion would be revived—the
strongholds just • wrested from the traitros,
would be re-possessed by their armies--the
credit of the Government would languish--and
all our sacrifices to maintain the national au
thority go tor naught. The man who now votes
to sustain the national Administration does
as much for the restoration of the Union and
the safety of the Government as the soldier
in the field. And in the same light, the man
who votes against the Administration, gives to
the rebellion and treason, a like aid with that
afforded by the armed traitor. A vote against
Abraham Lincoln, is a blow at the credit of
country—a blow at its liabilities—a blow
at its solvends and an effort for the beggary of
every m to who is its creditor or who holds any
dwount, of its money. These are severe truths.
l'hey involve the maintenance of the ere 'it as
well as the glory of the nation.

UNION OFFICERS IN Res=r. HANDS.—The re
cently released Union officers from Charleston,
who arrived in New York on Sunday, state
that on the 4th of July there were twelve
hundred Union officers held as prisoners, at
Macon, Georgia. A vote for Mr. Lincoln be
ing taken among them, resuited in the polling
of one thousand votes. Of the twelve hun
dred Union officers held as prisoners at
Charleston, none of them are desirous of ex
change save on terms that will be advantage
ous and highly honorable to the Government.
Six hundred of these officers are in the jail
and workhouse, the whole number being un
der fire. At Savannah, Georgia, six hundred
of oar officers are confused. In Charleston

AID AND COMFORT
It is difficult to decide how much of Mr.
Gilmore's (Edmund Kirke's) article in the
last Atlantic At naly, entitled " Our Visit to
Richmond," is fact and how much romance
One question, however, which he puts in the
mouth of the rebel President, may well have
been asked by that personage :
"Do you suppose there are twenty - mil runs
at the North determined to crush us ?"
What hope could the rebel leaders cherish,
or how long could they maintain the hopes of
their followers, if they believe that the twenty
millions of the North were substantially united
against their four and a half millions ? Their
only comturt at this hour is in the factious
demonstrations taking place in our section.
They openly claim the Democratic party of
the North, as at present constituted, as their
ally. They long and hope for a victory of
this party at the ballot box, and their spirits
are sustained and their courage is holding out,
in the expectation of such a victory.
The present Administration, whatever may
be its faults, is honestly and earnestly striving
to crush the rebellion and to save the country.
And considering the unparalleled nature of
the work in hand, itsiticcess has been encour
aging. An extraordinary degree of energy
and ability has been manifested in the vari
ous departments of the Government. Oar
nation has been'raised to a formidable rank
among the military and naval powers of the
word. Notwithstanding thepower, the cour
age and the pertinacityof the rebellion, such
has been the attitude' of the loyal states that
no toreign nation hae ventured to recognize
it, or to reneter it any but ',the most guarded
and stealthyleOvice. We say that the Admin
istration is honestly, earnestly and success
fully engaged in quelling the great rebellion.
It fairly represents the loyal sentiment of the
people. It is the:people, acting through their
agents, in this great It is the em
bodied majesty of our assailed laws, our im
perilled institutions, our national existence.
It is ftr from perfect, but its errors do not
touch or affect the essence of its plans; they
are in no way vital; the character of the Gov
ernment for loyalty and honesty of purpose is
What word then shall we find for bitter,
radical opposition to this Government, such
as is now organizing in the North? Is there
more than one source conceivable from which
such opposition could originate? Can we call
such movemonts political, without 'downright
violence even to this very elastic term? Is
there any room for partisan politics in the
arena where the nation is engaged in a fierce
struggle for its very existence, taxing its re
sources, draining its strength, requiring the

A TECHNICAL POINT DISPOSED OF BY THE
PRESIDENT. —A young lady whoa had served in
an Indiana regiment,: recently called on Pres
ident Lincoln to gethis decision of a question
affecting her back pay. She had been an in
mate of a hospital, and five months' pay was
due her, at the time =her sex !was. discovered;
but upon application the paymaster declined
to allow it, on the ground that there was
nothing in the regulations that would permit
him to pay a United, States soldier of the fe
male sex. Hence her visit to Washingto
and her call upon the President. - After pa
tiently listening to her statement, the Presi
dent, who was deeply interested, wrote a note
to the Paymaster General, saying that, as she
had faithfully served as a. soldier for two
years, and received the pay as:Stich for the
greater part of the time; he mild see no good
reason why she was not entitled .to'the re
mainder, and therefore Airected phyment of
the balance; concluding' with the assurance
that, it hereafter it would be found to be con
trary to the regulations, lie himself would be
responsible for the amount. The young lady
retired, well pleased with her interview, and
started for her home in,lndiana: the ;next day,
having tally accomplished AIL . 6.hject vt her
visit. The Washington dunday-Chrovaide says
