ANOTHER RALLY !
Gen. 0. S. Periy, Em-Governor
And others will speak at the Court House, on
Wednesday evening, Oct. 5, 1864. All Union
men are invited to.aVend.
WATCH THE POLLS I
Look out for Deserters and Men. Who
Palled to Report after Being Drafted.
We would remind the Union 'men in this
State to have committees appointed for every
election district in the State, whose special
duty it is to note every deserter from the
Union army, and every man who failed to re
port himself after being drafted. All these
men will vote the copperhead ticket, and our
Mends shbuld be on the alert. They can as
sist their country materially by giving proper
information which will lead to their arrest.
We repeat again, therefore, "WATCH THE poras."
—ln addition to the class of tories alluded
to above, whom the copperheads hope to use
at the polls, there are !JUL' others who must
be watched. We allude to persons who have
been exempt as demented, and therefore un
fit for service in the army. If any such pre
sent themselves at the polls, let their votes be
at once rejected.
Look Out for Spurious Congressional
The peculiar friends of Congressman Miller
hope to make a point by confounding the
names of the candidates for Congress in, this
District. William H. Miller and GEORGE F.
Mruitu cannot easily be confounded to the
intelligent voter. GEORGE F.MILLER is the
candidate of the friends of the Union—the
candidate who will represent the interests of
his District instead of those of a party in sym
pathy with traitors. William H. Miller is
the candidate of the avowed traitor sympa
thizers in the District, pledged to vote in a
coming as be has in a passing Congress—in
favor of every act and measure calculated to bene
flt the cause of treason, and against all proposi
tions to secure the overthrow of rebellion..
Surely no fraud which William H. Miller or
his friends may attempt between this and the
day of the election, will enable him or them
to impose upon the intelligent voter.
Bring in the Returns.
We trust that our friends in the different
election Districts in Dauphin county, will
make arrangements by which we will get the
returns as soon after the vote has been count
ed, on Tuesday night, as possible. If our
friends in the county accommodate us it this
matter, we will be able to give a correct tabu
lar return of the vote in the county, in our
morning edition of Wednesday.
Look Out for Spurious ~rickets
The old dodge of issuing spurious tickets
has been resorted to by the Copperheads.
Turstwonn En CAB?.Foz.—EXAMINE YOUR
TICKETS AND SEE THAT NO NAME OF THE STATE
on COUNTY TICEET is OurrrEn. Do not stab
your Country through the mean deception and de
vices of its enemies.
, Cirrtranra Tionm Own—One of the richest
captures of the war was the train on the Leb
anon Branch Kentucky railroad on Monday
last. It contained two car-loads of passen
gers going from Louisville to a McClellan
pic-nic near Lebanon. The excursionists had
a banner with the following inscriptions:
"McClellan and Pendleton." "We know our
rights, and knowing dare maintain." Yet the
train was surrendered without resistance to
two men and two boys.
OLD Ben Wade annunciated' a suggestive
truth, in a speech the other day, when be
said :—After a year .and a half of battles;
McClellan and his staff, and all their horses,
came out as sleek, as fat and fair, as they
went in. Not one had blood drawn on him,
And he-was the young Napoleon!"
"Ora success in battle," says the Charles
ton Mercury, "insures the success of McClel
lan; our failure, will inevitably lead to his de
Never since the war began has the political
and military prospects been more promising
than now. Everywhere our armies are reap
ing successes which are assuring the final and
early triumph of the Union cause. Atlanta;
the Capital of the Southern half of the rebel
Confederacy, and second in importance only
to Richmond itself, has fallen, while Mobile,
which has been the great entre pot for blockade
runners on the Gulf coast, has been hermeti
cally sealed by the capture of the forts at the
mouth of Mobile Bay. The attention'of that
stern hero of the sea, Admiral Farragut, will
no doubt be turned now to Wilmington, the last
port through which the rebels keep up a regular
commercial comunication with the outer world.
Sheridan has routed Early in the Valley of the
Shenandoah, and is pressing his demoralized
and dispirited hordes towards Richmond.—
Grant has taken up the "On to Richmond,"
and his brave veterans and gallant new re
cruits are moving with equal zeal and enthu
siasm "upon the enemy's • works" between
Petersburg and Richmond. The rebel move
ments in Tennessee and Missouri furnish no
exception to the general ride. It is believed
that Forrest has already been compelled to re
tire, and there are indications that it is Gen.
Rosecrans' purpose to draw "Pap" Price and
his ragamuffins on as far as possible, in order
that a clean sweep may be made of them.
Two weeks hence we do not believe there will
be left a rebel in Missouri who will not be a
prisoner, or striving to disguise himself by
the profession of Union sentiments.
Not the least gratifying fact is, that the draft
is being quietly and successfully enforced in
all the States. The army is thus being rap
idly reinforced, and inspired with new zeal
and confidence. • The Government is immea
surably stronger to-day than it ryas two weeks
ago, when it halted on the brink of the draft.
The loyal North, foreign nations, and our
rebel enemies, and their northern sympathiz
ers, eiders and abettors see that the rebellion
is to be suppressed and the Union preserved;
and that fact is of itself equal to an army of a
hundred thousand men. No man who regards
his character for sagacity or loyalty dares now
to doubt that the Union and the Constitution
will triumph over treason AR rebellion.
At the same time, it is evident that what
ever contributes to the military success of the
Union cause, also contributes to the suc
cess of the same cause politically. Atlanta
and Mobile, Sheridan's successes in the Val
ley of the Shenandoah, and Grant's before
Petersburg, all are so many unanswerable ar
guments for the re-election of President Lin
coln. This is confessed by our political op
ponents when they redeye the news of Union
victories in silence, or scarcely dissembled
disgust. Victory in Missouri, in Georgia and
Virginia, means iictory at the polls in Novem
ber, and both we will have.
The Draft in the City of Harrisburg.
The organs of copperhoadism in this lo
cality, are strenuously laboring to create the
impression that another draft will be shortly
ordered. The reports are coined and circu
lated to panicize and influence the poor labor
ing men of the city, with a view thus unfairly
to control their votes. The facts in the case,
however, when fairly understood, will con
vince any candid man that, had it not been
for the copperhead leaders holding seats in
the city council, every ward in Harrisburg
would have been exempt. Every drafted citi
zen of Harrisburg can thank such men as W.
0. Hickok, John W. Hall, A. T. Hamilton,
with their copperhead colleagues, for the ex
istence of the necessity which compelled them
to leave their families and take up arms to
crush a wicked rebellion. There were large
numbers of single men who were willing to
volunteer and credit themselves to the differ
ent wards, thus rendering it unnecessary for
men of families to go forth to battle, perilling
lives on which helpless women and children
depended for support. But a copperhead
council interposed, and absolutely drove poor
men into the army. A copperhead council
defied, as it were, the unanimous voice of its
constituents, who had met in mass meeting
to ask that such an appropriation be made.
And yet the organs of a party represented by
such a council now strive to alarm the people
with the false story of another draft. Cannot
the intelligent hard working men of Harris
burg see the real designs of the demagogues
who are at the bottom of this business? So
far as the Democratic leaders are concerned,
they would rejoice if a draft were ordered
every month. All such men care for,
influence or the pretexewhich affords them
chance of catching the votes of poor men.
After they have used the laboring man thus,
they are willing to let him go into the army
or to perdition, for aught they care. How long
will the people be blind to these tricky and
hollow hearted demagogues ?
The Seven Principles of the Democrats.
As General WCllan appears to have con
siderable difficulty with the war and peace
factions in adjusting his platform, we offer
him our aid gratuitously in arranging the
trouble. It isapparent that neither the Chi
cago platform nor McClellan's letter can heal
the sore, therefore there must be some new
creed framed; and as all kinds of subterfuges
have failed, we suggest that the party fall
back upon its true principles, seven in num
ber, to wit:
1. The national offices.
2. The patronage thereof.
3. The State offices.
4. The patronage thereof.
5. The local offices.
6. The patronage thereof.
7. Defence of slavery, in order to get the
aid of the South in the elections.
This creed, manfully declared, would miite
more Democrats than any other.
THE representative of the McClellan party
in New England is Mr. Joseph Story Fay,
who celebrated the last Fourth of July by
hoisting the Stars and Stripes at half-mast
over his own house. And his insult to the
American Flag is admitted and upheld by the
McClellan papers in Boston.
Tai Copperhead . papers - have suddenly
dropped the expression "Lincciln hirelings.'
It is said to be out of regard for the feelings
of Gen. McClellan, who, still continues to
draw his pay as a Major General, though out
of service for nearly two'years past.
THE OLD GUARD AROUSED.
rand Union Demonstration in Lancaster City.
Forty Thousand Freemen in Council !
The Largest Mass Meeting Ever ileid,
In the Middle States or the
Special to the Telegraph.
LANCASTER, Ca 5, 1864
The monster mass meeting about being
organized in this city, exceeds in enthusiasm,
numbers, magnificence of display and general
respectability, anything of the kind ever wit
nessed by your correspondent in any State of
the Union. At least forty thousand people
have been gathered within the limits of the
city, and these representing every class in the
mechanic arts, every branch in the useful
professions, the wealth and the intellect of
Lancaster county and the surrounding country.
Every public . building in the city is gaily
decorated with flags, while the four great
thoroughfares leading from the centre of the
city, are filled with dense masses of people,
the delegates from the townships of Lancas
ter county. The enthusiasm—banners, musici
representatives of the mechanic arts at work,
gaily attired ladies on horseback, soldiers,
citizens, all combining to make such a display
as will never be forgotten by the beholder.
I have mot had time to ascertain positively
who are here to address this vast throng, but
I can safely telegraph you that Hon. Henry
Winter Davis, of Md., Col. John W. Forney,
Hon. Simon Cameron, are here and will ad
dress the meeting this afternoon.

In passing over the ground where the 2d

being wounded, and one body presented a
