MUM EVENING, OCTOBER 15,1864.
NATIONAL UNION TICKET.
FOR VICE PRESIDENT.
What we Want to Make our Success I
Thorough and Complete In November.
The people of Pennsylvania are as loyal to
day as when they rushed to arms, with a
mighty and an irresistible power, at the first
assault on the Government. On a direct is
sue, affecting the safety of the Union, such as
will be involved in the November election, we
believe that at least two-thirds of the people
of Pennsylvania will stand firmly by the Gov
ernment, and vote for the re-election of Abra
ham Lincoln. All that is necessary to secure
such a vote, is the action which can alone
produce a thorough local organization. There
are hundreds, if not thousands, of honest men
in Pennsylvania, who do not fully appreciate
the magnitude of the great political issue, and
who cannot fairly estimate the importance of
our vote. These men compose a class who ima
gine that their absence from the polls cannot
affect the general result. They are unenlight
ene,d as to the fact that it is not the individit
al, but the aggregate of those who thus neglect
their duty, which produces the mischief. To
reach this evil we must have thorough local
organization ; and to effect this in every local
ity, county committees and sub-township com.
mittees must at once go to work. The com
mittees in every ward and township should
know every voter—should watch the polls to
see that the votes of all such are polled.
Large mass meetings, goeous displays of
Chinese lanterns, and gaily decorated transpa
rencies are all well enough, but these cannot
produce the results required at the November elec
tion. The local committees, which operate
directly on the individual voter—which meet
the workman at his bench, the farmer in the
field, the merchant at his counter—wield the
influences which carry off victory. If — every
ward and township committee does its duty—
if every active loyalist gives a portion of his
time to his country—to his party—in the man
ner we have indicated, we can carry Pennsyl
vania in November by twenty thousand majority.
Try it, friends of the Union !
A Copperhead Fraud to get Soldier Votes
One of the returned Commissioners who
was in the army to procure the votes, has pre
sented us with a printed copy of a receipt
issued by the Treasurer of Bedford county.
How in the name of common sense can men
who have spent thousands of dollars to 'pre
vent the passage of a law. to enable soldiers
to vote, turn around and express the least
friendship for them we are unable to discern.
Yet the Copperheads have done their utmost
to catch votes away from home, but when
they had a chance to express their sympathy
for a soldier at home they were always against
him on election day. Here is a copy of the
receipt in question, viz:
BEDFORD, P.L. Sept. 28, 1864 .
DIAS Sra :—lnclosed find tickets for you
and your friends. The vote is really for
McClellan, because of the influence of the
that election on the second. Your taxes have
been assessed and paid to me as Treasurer of
the county, and this you can use, if necessary,
as a duplicate receipt.
J. B. FARQUHAR, Treasurer.
The loyal citizens of Bedford had better ex
amine the books of the county Treasurer, and
ascertain how much tax has really been re
turned. The army has been flooded with
similar receipts, and it is an easy matter to
have tliedi printed to be used as DUPLICATES.
Thousands have been used in order to defeat
General Koontz for Congress on the soldier
vote. The Copperheads of Bedford county
are desperafie, and we hope our friends will
investigate the matter.
A Word to our Adopted FeHow-Citizens.
None know so well the difference between a
free and a despotic Government, than those
who have suffered the oppression of the one
and enjoyed the beneficence of the other.
Such as these will vote understandingly in
November, and therefore every adopted citizen
who goes to the ballot box to oppose the Gov
ernment by his vote, runs the risk of either
making himself an emigrant from the home
of his adoption, or will remain to endure the
oppression to escape which he left the home of
his birth. Every adopted citizen—those who left
old Ireland to escape British oppression—
those who left the German States to fly from
Austrian intolerance, and those who fled from
vine clad France to throw off the chains of
Gallic tyranny, cannot fail -to understand
that if the Union of free American States is
destroyed, such as these will have no home. In
such an event, indeed, every foreign despot Will
come to claim as his own subjects those who
are now adopted citizens of a great free Re
public. Adopted citizens, think of this grave
fact, and vote to sustain your free Govern
ment. Vote so as to put an end to the efforts
of the slave-drivers to destroy free govern
ment. Remember that if we lose the Union
of free States, every poor man runs the risk
of becoming a slave;
SAzasont 1 ) . CHASE seems to be the choice of
the whole counry for the Chief Justiceship of
the United States Supreme Court, now vacant
by the death of Mr. Taney. Mr. Chase is a
jurist of undoubted ability, and has so con
ducted himself as a statesman and a patriot,
as to deserve this the most lasting honor in
the bestowal of the President. We sincerely
hops that the appointment of Chief Justice
may fall upon Salmon P. Chase.
Swizz are the uses of adversity, is not a
true maxim in polities. The series of defeats
which have fallen upon the rebels, have made
the Copperheads as sour as sublimated ver
juke. If they should be solved into mother
mils just now, the soil would produce noth
ing but crab apples.
The Soldiers' Vote
There is nothing so annoying to the cop
perheads, as the certainty that the result of
the election in favor of the Government is en
tirely attributable to the vote of the soldiers.
The soldier in the field, pausing only for a
moment in his brave struggle with armed
traitors, struck a blow with his ballot that has
laid low, in eternal political death, every se
cret, conspiring, sneaking, cowardly traitor
in the free States. But the demagogues who
have thus been defeated, are determined neves
to give up their persecution of the soldier.
Instead of granting to the brave men, soldiers
in the service of the Government, the just
merit of having exercised the right of the
elective franchise in the spirit of freemen in
telligently wielding a patriotic influence, lead
copperheads in this city, old men, who
have enjoyed some of the honors at the be
stowal of a generous people, are coining and
circulating the most villainous stories on this
subject, among the most mischievous and of
fensive of which is one to the effect that the
Secretary of War had issued an order directing
that all the enrolled soldiers who refused to vote
the "Abolition" (Republican or Administration)
ticket, should at once be sent to the front. We
refer to this vile slander, not to refute it, be
cause it contains the stench of its falsehood
on its face, but merely to exhibit the venom
of those now in antagonism to the Govern
ment. A baser falsehood never flowed from
the lips of a traitor, than the one to which
we have alluded. In the same connection,
we hear that leading old copperheads aver
that they have in their possession the affida
vit's of soldiers, setting forth these facts. We
don't believe it, or, if it is so, the soldier who
has thus sworn has put a perjury on his soul,
which will damn it through all eternity. In
deed, we doubt if such affidavits do not come
within the scope of the swearing once done
by Peg Beatty and John Stoneman.
--The soldiers in the field, in the hospital,
or on furlough at home, have long since been
convinced, that the Democratic leaders would,
had they the power, degrade them below the
level of the negro slave. If any have doubted
this, the actien of the Democratic leaders
since the late election will convince them of
its entire truthfulness. It is now openly
asserted, that in no case will a decision of an
election, by the vote of the soldier, be ac
knowledged as legal. Wherever the vote of
the soldier is accepted to decide an election, it
is threatened by the Democratic leaders to re
sist the decision by the force of arms. Such
is the attitude of the leaders of the Demo
cratic party. It is an attitude worthy of the
serious consideration of the soldier.
Gen. Logan on Pendleton
There have been/ great many truthful and
sharp things said respecting this "familiar
friend" of the Great Apostle of Peace, but
nothing more pungent and forcible than has
fallen from his former colleague in the House,
that gallant soldier and distinguished Demo
crat, the devoted friend of Judge Douglas,
Major General John H. Logan. In a powerful
and characteristic speech of his at Carbondale,
DI., marked by the bluntness of the soldier
and the familiar k;owledge of current events
of the skillful politician, Gen. Logan says :
"They ask me to vote for George B. Mc-
Clellan on such a platform as this ! I say, I
won't do it. [Applause.) They ask me to
vote for George H. Pendleton, and I say I
would not vote for him on that or any other
platform, for Vice President or any other
office, if the devil were a candidate against
him. Why do I say so ? I served with him
in Congress, and I have beeniforced and com
pelled to denounce him as a traitor; and I
have a good right to do so to-day. I have
heard from his lips, in the halls of Congress,
before he was even thought of as a candidate,
words of treason and disloyalty. He has de
nounced this war from the time it commenced
He has never voted a solitary dollar, nor a cent
in favor of prosecuting this war, no matter how
the money was to be expended—whether for
grub for the soldiers, or anything else—not
ono dollar has he voted that could be spent
in any way against the rebellion and in favor
of the Government. I defy his Mends to-day
to point me to one line, or one syllable ever
written or uttered by him in favor of restor
ing this Government by putting down the re
; bellion—not a word. But •if you will read
I his speeches you will find that he has justified
Secession. You will find that he has advo-
cated State rights, and said that he believed
the people of the South tad a right to secede,
and the Government had no right to coerce
them back into the Union. That is the doc
trine he has advocated, and upon that record
people ask me to vote for him. Again, I defy
any man to show me his letter accepting the
nomination on the Chicago platform. Where
is it? Why is it that no man can find it?
He has never accepted that nomination except
by shnple acquiescence, and by his being put
on the ticket. Why is this, I say? Because
the Chicago Convention knew, when they
adopted that platform, that McClellan would
write a soft letter, sort of for war, saying that
he knew the Convention was for the war, but
they forgot to say so, and all that kind of
thing. [Laughter.] They have prevented
George H. Pendleton from writing a letter,
and I venture to say that he will never write
one. Because, if they wanted a letter from
him, unless they wrote it themselves, he has
been so much in the habit of speaking trea
son that he could not write anything else. It
would damn him before the country and they
REBKL FINANCES. —The Richmond Enquirm,
of Saturday last, has a leading article on the
condition of the rebel finances, which opens
in the following lively strain:
"Money has ceased to-be a standard of value
in the confederacy. The promissory notes of
the Government cannot buy supplies or labor.
Great manufacturers hold out such induce
ments to purchasers who will pay in produce,
that even the stringent orders of the War De
partment, forbidding detailed tanners to bar
ter their crops for indispensable machinery,
have become powerless. Mechanics refuse to
work for anything but provisions. Teachers
demand a pittance in eatable or a small for
tune in Treasury Notes. Worst of all Gov-.
ernment itself offers an immense premium on
all taxes paid in kind by assessing provisions
furnished for that purpose at the highest mar
ket rate. It floods the country with certifi
cates of debt," etc.
The Enquirer is anxious to know what will
be the upshot of this condition of affairs. We
do not wonder that it finds it impossible to
Douglas' Opinion of Lincoln
In the campaign of 1860 Major General
Steadman, now in Shermailis army, but then
a private citizen of Ohio, was a very earnest
friend and political supporter of Douglas.
During the Presidential canvass between the
latter and Mr. Lincoln, Mr. Steadman, in a
private interview, asked him what he thought
of Mr. Lincoln.
"Sir," replied Douglas, "Lincoln is an hon
est and a fearless man."
Will all true Democrats consider this opin
ion of their former chief in connection with
his public statement that there could be but
two parties in this crisis—one for the govern
ment and the other against it? There is no
doubt how Douglas would vote were he living.
Can any loyal Democrat be false to his
memory and vote for the party against the
Government and against the Union?.
Address of the Union State Central Com
Pennsylvania Against Dishonorable Surrender
Rooms OF UNION STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE
1105 CHESTNUT STREET, OCt. 14, 1864
The returns of the late election, now in the
possession of this Committee, enable it to an
nounce. that Pennsylvania has decided against
all armistices, and attempts at peace, until
rebellion is broken and treason disarmed.
True to its past history, the Keystone State
arrays herself by the side of Ohio and Indiana,
and proclaims to the world her confidence in
an Administration true to the Union of the
States, and her intention to sustain that Ad
ministration in power until the Union is re
stored. The Union party has carried the State,
gained three members of Congress, and elected
a majority of both houses of the Legislature,
on the home vote, and the soldiers' vote as
far as received indicates the gain pf two
more members of Congress, and a clear
Union majority of fifteen thousand votes.
This is a most gratifying result, and should
fill the heart of every loyal man with joy.
Its importance cannot be overestimated, in
view of the fact that some seventeen thousand
soldierswho came home last year and voted
for Governor Curtin are now absent with the
army and are yet to be heard from. Besides,
it is computed that under the last call of the
President, and within the past few months,
twenty-three thousand of our citizens have
gone forth to the field. These men are scat
tered over the whole country, and
owing to the active operations now in
progress it has been impossible for the
commissioners appointed for that purpose
to obtain all their votes. Thousands and
thousands of votes have thus been lost to
the Union party, which party can only be de
pended on to feed the army with fighting
material. Under these circumstances the
Committee regard the victory achieved as a
grand triumph, and congratulate the country
upon it. The re-election of Mr. Lincoln is
certain. In November the State will give a
greatly increased majority. There will be but
two tickets, and party lines will be more dis
tinctly drawn. No local jealousies or differ
ences will divide our friends, and, united on
the. great issue, Pennsylvania will poll a vote
for Lincoln and Johnson which will prove
that she is second to none of her sister States
in devotion to the Federal Government.

The Attack on the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad.
BALTIMORE, Oct. 14.
On Thursday night the express passenger
train for Wheeling, left the Camden Station
at 9.15, with the U. S. mails, Adams & Co.'s
express car, and 200 passengers, under the
charge of Conductor Shutt.
The train ran upon time until it reached a
point near liearneysville, between Harper's
Ferry and Martinsburg, when the locomotive,
in consequence of the removal of a rail, ran
off the track, and the cars were soon brought
to a halt. The ground on each side of the
track was 'quite level, and the engine was nei
ther upset nor injured.
The passengers were considerably alarmed,
and were soon informed of the real state of
affairs ; for the rebel Moseby appeared; accom
panied by a mounted force estimated at from
100 to 200, who commenced robbing the pas
sengers, among whom was Mr. Louis M. Cole,
general ticket agent of the company, who was
proceeding West on important business.
From him they took all he bad—namely $l9
and a gold watch.
Many of the passengers lost their watches,
the contents of their pocket books, and their
boots and hats. There was a company of
emigrants, 60 in number, who did not lose
muca, for the reason that their baggage had
been left in this city.
After the thieves had completed their de
predations they ordered all the Passengers
out of the train, and, after burning the train,
remounted and dashed off. The burned cars
contained the remains of a soldier on their way
to his relatives. The contents of the mail
are not known. None of the employees of
the company were injured except the engineer
and fireman, who are reported to be badly
Detachments of cavalry are in pursuit of
the guerrillas, but no tidings have yet been
heard from them.
The road was not injured, and the trains
are now moving as. usual.
PRICE'S INTASION--PILLAGE AND ARSON--PRICE
COMES TO REDEEM. THE STATE-PILOT E.NOB
AGAIN IN OUR POSSESSION.
Price's headquarters are still reported at
Booneville. Shelby and General John B.
Clark, son of the former Congressman of that
district, are north of the Missouri, pillaging
and conscripting. Our forces have evacuated
Fulton, Sturgeon, Huntsville. Glasgow and
Fayette, and are. concentrating at Mason City.
Clark's men occupied Glasgow and robbed
Fulton. Price made a speech at Booneville,
stating that he came to Missouri to redeem
the people of that State. ,It was the last effort
in their behalf, and if they would rally to his
standard all would be well, and he would re
main with them. If not, the Confederacy
would not again offer them an opportunity for
redemption over their woes.
A dispatch from Major Williams,. of the 10th
Kansas regiment, says he had taken posses
sion of Pilot Knob and the surrounding re
gion. He found two hundred and fifteen
wounded rebels there, including twenty-six
commissioned officers. The evident conclu
sion is that the rebels lost over fifteen hundred
killed and wounded in their attack on Pilot
Knob. Nearly 8350,000 worth of goods were,
taken from the Stores in Pilot Knob. Gene
