The Vote of the Soldiers—Blanks for
Voting by Proxy—The Appointment of
Ageni so to Visit the Riff rent. PenissyLyle
nia Regiments; in the Field.
As considerable impatience has been dis
played by the Pennsylvania soldiers and their
friends at home, at what seemed cm unneces
sary delay in the arrangement for taking the
vote of the heroes in the field, we have been
at considerable pains to ascertain when and
how such agents will be dispatched to the
field, and how, also, those who are to vote by
proxy, are to proceed. Those who have
riends in the army, who are stationed at iso
lated points, or who are on detached duty,
and who must vote by proxy, can procure the
blanks to send to such soldiers, by applying
to the Secretary of State, Hon. Eli Slifer,
who will furnish such blanks, either to persons
calling at the State Department, or by
mail. It is impossible for the department
here to ascertain the locality in which indi
vidual Pennsylvania soldiers are detailed for
duty, but desiring that these men should all
wield the elective franchise, the State authori
ties rely on the efforts of the friends of such
soldiers at home to secure them the privileges
of that sacred right. With regard to regi
ments in the field, the agents to visit them
will,be appointed as soon as the War Depart
ment furnishes the localities at which
such organizations are now stationed or
the armies with which they are ope
rating. We trust that no neglect of duty,
oversight or laggardness will intervene
to deprive the soldier, of his full right in
the exercise of the elective franchise. At this
time, and with the principles involved in the
political contest impending, the soldier of all
other men, should have the full exercise of
of his voice, as expressed by the ballot, in the
control of the Government. If this should fail
to be allowed to him, the consequences might
be disastrous alike to the civil rule and mili
tary success of the people.
Catching at Straws
The copperhead organs are indulging in
extravagant congratulations over the fact that
such men as George D. Prentice and Gov.
Bramlette, of Ky., Amos Kendall, Washing
ton Hunt, James S. Thayer, and a few others,
whom they claim as long standing Republi
cans or patriotic Democrats, are now support
ing George B. M'Clellau. We have nothing
particularly to write in favor of or in oppo
sition to these men, but when it is attempted
to make capital for Little Mac, because
a few worn out political hacks are in his
favor, we are constrained, as an offset,
to give the names of gallant heroes and
brave warriors who are now earnestly asking
their friends at home to labor for the re-elec
tion of Abraham Lincoln: Lieutenant Gen
eral Grant, Major Generals Hancock, Burn
side, M'Call, Birney,Meagher, Warren, Ave
rill and Wool, all Democrats in MO, now
earnestly and even imploringly ask for the
re-election of Abraham Lincoln as a means
of assisting in the success of the armies which
they command, to defeat and overthrow re
bellion. When such mon ask for the support
of a political candidate, they mean the good
of the country. But when a few broken down
partizans seek the elevation of a failure in the
shape of a soldier, they mean mischief.
Withdrawal of Gen. Fremont
Private dispatches received in this city to
day, from reliable parties in New York, posi
tively state that John C. Fremont has written
a letter, which will shortly be published,
withdrawing his name from the Presidential
contest. He gives as a reason for this step
theparamount importance of harmonizing all
the loyal elements in order to secure the suc
cess of the Government in the .coming Presi
dential contest, and appeals to his friends in
the name of Union, Liberty and Peace to sup
port the election of Lincoln and Johnson.
THE NATIONdI, INTELLIGENCEE is quoted by
the copperhead organs as a Republican news
paper which supports the pretences of
to the Presidency. For four years the
littelligencer has steadily upheld the rebel
cause; and has been regarded as the Jeff.
Davis organ printed in the city of Washing
ton. Its columns are entirely in the control
of the seoession sympathizers of Washington
city, and it may be justly regarded , as the
meanest and most unscrupulous of all the
journals which gave encouragement to the
slave-holders' rebellion. Of course such
sheets are favorable to the election of Arclel

Look Out for a Crash.
The wholesale merchant and manufacturing
speculators of the East have been carrying
immense stocks of goods in anticipation of
further rises in price, and for the purpose of
taking advantage of every necessitiy which the
vicissitudes of war might create. This spirit
of speculation has extended to almost every
retail man in the country. It is now begin
ning to be apparent that those who thus en
gaged in speculating in the wants of the peo
ple, are showing signs of uneasiness, and in
the Eastern market, particularly, the dispo
sition is to get rid of large stocks, and close
up business, at least so far as speculation is
concerned, for the present. Merchants and
manufacturers are anxious to confine them
selves now to the legitimate venture of trade.
But the question is, whether a large portion of
these men will be able to do so before the
crash which is inevitable overtakes them. The
fall of gold—the steady increase of the armies
—the healthy tone and temper of the people
on the subject of crushing out rebellion and
restoring peace, all point to a crash among
speculators which, we regret, will be feltfor a
time among those stho are innocent of the
frauds which enabled a few men to amass large
sums of money at the expense of the living
and business of the great mass. It is now
very certain that a great fall must take place
in the dry goods and provision market. And
when this change occurs, there will come a
crash among speculators.
THE WORK OF CLosnia xns. WAR Is BEFORE
Us.—That is what Gov. Brough says in his
Proclamation, and he says the truth. "The
work of closing this war is before us; we have
it to do, and of course we cannot avoid recog
nizing the fact that we must furnish the means
to accomplish that purpose." There are just •
two ways to end this war: fight it out to the
destruction of its cause, or ignobly compro
mise for the salvation of slavery, and a cer
tain crop of future contests. Those who
take counsel from cowardice, or from traitor
lips, will join the party that declares for
peace at any price; those who are worthy de
scendants of those patriot sires, who founded
this Government with the direct understand
ing and belief that slavery shout be but a
temporary evil, will fight out this war until it
secures to all the inalienable right of liberty,
and until the dignity of labor is vindicated,
and our institutions placed beyond reach of
the vandal hands of such as would sustain an
aristocracy upon the product of the sweat
and groans of unrequited toil.
LIBBY Parson.—The condition of this infa
mous institution does not seem to have im
proved of late, or the treatment of Union sol
diers who are so unfortunate as to be placed
there. A New York surgeon, recently released
from a six weeks' confinement there, says the
officers have two large rooms on the second
and third floor, each fifty by one hundred and
ten feet, without furniture, and with grated
windows, which have no sashes or glass in
them. The inmates are each allowed one
coarse blanket, and the floor as a bed. Al
though their condition is not so very bad in
the day time, except on account of the close
confinement and surveillance, at night it is
made terrible by reason of the prevalence of
vermin. Their rations for a whole day are not
sufficient for one good meal, and consist of
coarse corn bread, bacon (which is fregently
the stinking and maggoty) and bean soup.
The private soldiers are even less comfortably
provided for. The officers are not permitted
to approach the windows. Three were lately
shot by the guard for looking out.

We have had but one George for President
and he was the Father of our Country. The
country, to-day, longs for another George who
shall be its preserver, and the great masses of
the people turn confidently to the Democratic
nominee as the only hope of a restored Union
and an enduring peace.
In view of all the eircunistances, if the Chi
cago Convention must have a "George" to
govern the nation, it should have taken up
George N. Sanders as the most consistent rep
resentative of the party and the platform.
Ix orke sense the nomination of Gen. M'-
Mellen can scarcely be looked upon as having
been made by a party.—Bedford Gazette.
—True, every word of it. Instead of being
made by a party, M'Clellan's nomination was
the result of a conspiracy of every fag end of
faction, and is now supported by the adven
turers who degrade politics to the meanest
purposes of public plundering. If such Wien
succeed with such a candidate, this Republic
will cease to exist.
Ex-SEcarrAaY CHABE, who recently made a
tour of the eastern States, says that the vote
of Mr. Lincoln will be larger in that part of
the Union than it was in 1860. Mr. Chase

urge the re-election of Mr. Lincoln, with all
the ability and influence for which the great
statesman is distinguished.

FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC.
The Rebels Violate An Agreement and Pay
Dearly for It.
The Latest from .the Front.
HEADQUARTERS ARMY OF THE POTOMAC,
Daring the past few days both sides have
engaged in a continuous struggle of sharp
shooting and artillery firing, particularly in
the centre of the line.
It was thought several nights ago that this
annoying practice would cease in front of the
Second corps, as an agreement had been made
by both sides to that effect, but it is reported
that the same night, as our men were chang
ing the pickets, the rebels opened and killed
and wounded about a dozen of our men.
Our soldiers threatened that they would
have revenge for this dastardly act ; so watch
ing a favorable opportunity, when the rebels
had a large number exposed, they blazed
away with terrible effect. Those unhurt were
not long in seeking the cover of their works,
and finally begged our men to cease, as the
firing the night before was by anew regiment
who were not aware of the agreement.
Bat the answer sent over, which was rather
more expressive than elegant, seemed to sat
isfy them that the truce was at an end, and
ever since each has been watching a chance
to tip his adversary over.
Twentyambulances were this morning seen
to come towards the place where the struggle
occurred, and to go back loaded, evidencing
that the rebels paid dearly for their bad faith.
The enemy have been busy for several days
constructing a second line of works behind
the first, and are making it as strong as the

Passengers by the mail boat to-day, report
that on Friday a large body of rebel cavalry
made a raid on our reserve cattle herd oppo
site Harrison's Landing, and succeeded in car

The guard taking
. care of these cattle was
the 13th Pennsylvania cavalry, about 200 men,
and of course could not make much resist
ance against such a heavy body of the enemy.
The attack was made just before daylight
yesterday morning, and the men attempted to
open the fence and stampede the cattle so as
to get them nearer our troops, but they were
shut at while making the effort.
Capt. Richardson, Commissary of Subsist
ence, had charge of the herd, which was the
main supply for the army in front of Rich
mond. He had scarcely time to save his pa
pers, and his men lost their entire effects.
Our cavalry started in pursuit, and it was
thought that the entire lot would be captured.

THE HdPENDEraI BATTLE OF THE WELDON waur.o.u)
All accounts of an impending battle on the
Weldon railroad are mere speculations based
on remote probabilities. Deserters reported
that Lee had changed his headquarters to the
Vicinity of Ream's station a week ago, for the
purpose of bringing on a battle and draw
ing us from that much coveted position.
The attempt has not yet been made, and
the whole story may have been a rebel
fabrication. Whether Lee did so move his
headquarters or not it is certain that a large
portion of the rebel soldiery stationed in that
quarter believe he did. The report may have
been put in circulation to inspire them with
additional confidence, or may have been in

ARRIVAL OF REBEL DESERTERS.
Another batch of seventy-eight rebel de

Point on board of the steamer Vanderbilt.
They represent Florida, Georgia, North Car

They say that the rebel officers have become
very vigilant of late, owing to the numerous
desertions of their men, who experience great
difficulty in getting away, and many of
them have been shot while endeavoring to
make their escape to our lines. The most
favorable opportunity afforded those who wish
to desert is when on the skirmish line, or when
on vidette duty, these deserters say. There
were four brothers among he number brought
here this morning. They belonged to Vir

at the same time. All of these deserters took

TO THE PUBLIC :—lt gives me great pleasure to recom
mend to the public the medicine prepared by DR. J.J.
ItcBRIDE, which he calls the " RING OF PAIN." I was
induced to use it, as an external remedy fora brui.se, which
itrelic trameiliately. and subsequently cured entirely.
Its success induced me to useit internally for Diarrlicea,
with which I was afflicted in a chronic form for nearly
eighteen months, anu to such an extent that my kidneys
were seriously deranged The medicine has cured ma
and certainly that is saying agreat veal in its favor, when I
reflect how many other remedies I tried without expert
racing anythine but temporary relief. For my part, I.
shall always keep a supply of it in my house, believing as
I do that it is a most invaluable family meamine.
