James Martin, of Sprucehill township, Juni
ata county, was arrested yesterday, for at
tempting to enlist Thomas Young, of Lack
township, same county. It appears that Mar
tin persuaded Young to come down here and
enlist, to secure a bounty, but after he had
been examined and was ready to be sworn in,
it was ascertained that he had been. drafted
in June last, but failed to report. 'He was
therefore held as a drafted man, and he en
tered the service in a cheerful mood. After
wards Young made an affidavit that he had
been persuaded to enlist by Thomas Martin,
and upon this information he hasbeen arrest
ed and placed in the guard house.
Martin, it appears, has made a habit of en
listing drafted men, and thus deprive the
Government of their services and fill his own
Pockets. Whilst he was busily engaged in
this nefarious business he was abusing the
Government constantly, and casting odium
upon the Administration. We have our eyes
on several others of the same gentry, some
of whom have been dishonorably discharded
from the service, who are now robbing the
men that are willing to defend their country.
These men must be banished from the city
tor the good of the country.
Ax OVATION TO Vicronr.—Rev John Walker
Jackson at the Court _House last night--A Bril
liant Audience and a Powerful Oration. —The
meeting in the Court House, last evening, for
the purpose of 'listening to an oration from
Rev. John Walker Jackson, was one of the
most respectable and enthusiastic assem
blages convened during the campaign. The
meeting a week ago, to hear Mr. Dougherty
speak, was considered large, but it is gener
ally conceded that it was exceeded by the
gathering last night, if not in respectability,
brilliancy and enthusiasm, at least in num
bers. The Court-room was crowded in all its
parts. Every stall was packed; the aisles and
entry literally overflowed, the windows were
filled, while the bar, and many of the stalls
contiguous, were filled with the matronly and
youthful beauty of the city. Indeed, Stand
ing at the door leading from the rear entry
into the Court-room, we had a favorable posi
tion to.observe the audience, and from that
point its splendor seemed to our gaze real
ly incomparable. The ladies, rich in the first
attire of the fall fashions—the dense crowds
of men, with the military, invalids and heroes,
scattered through the audience, imparted to
the scene that gorgeousness and dazzling
beauty which are not soon forgotten when
once observe&
On motion of George Bergner, George M.
Wieatling, Esq., was called to the chair.
Col. 11. C. Alleman movedithe appointment
of a committee to wait on Mr. Jackson and
conduct him to the Court House.
H. C. Allman, George Bergner, and George
W. Harris, were appointed said committee,
and after a short absence, presented the ora
tor to the audience.
Rev. Jackson took the stand amid great
enthusiasm. After order had been restored,
the speaker asked the indulgence of the audi
ence, while he explained the singularity of
the position he occupied before the people.
He was a minister of the Gospel. He had
chosen that calling when a mere boy—he de
sired none other while he lived. To preach
the gospel was the main object of his life—
but, while in the discharge of that great duty,
he felt that he had time, nay that he was com
manded to speak a word in defence of his
country. In the days of the Revolutionary
war, when the colonies were engaged in a
noble struggle to establish a free Government,
the then ministry of the land did not deem
it derogatory to their holy calling to engage
with their compatriots in the work of wresting
a young nation from the grasp of an old
despotism. The deeds and the sacrifices of
the ministry loyal to the colonies during the
Revolutionary struggle for Independence, now
constitute a portion of the most sacred his
tory of that glorious epoch. Why, then, re
membering that the men of God assisted in
creating this nation, in giving form to its in
stitutions, shape to its Government, and
potency to its freedom, have not the honest
followers of the same calling, a right to step
forward and enroll themselves among those
who are engaged in a struggle to preserve the
nation in its greatness and its glory—its-free
dom and its prosperity ? He was certain of
the performance of his duty while engaged'
in the service of his country. He was confi
dent that he was doing his duty while he was
employed in the defence of his government,
and therefore he was before the people of
Harrisburg ; believing, too, that the time had
come when no man could hesitate to speak
out boldly for freedom. He did not seek au
diences from his fellow citizens merely to in
dulge in a political harangue. He appeared
before the people to speak alone for his
country—to point out to his countrymen the
dangers by which they were surrounded, and
then, if possible, direct them in the proper
path of escape. To do this it might be ne
cessary for him to offer his audience a word
of advice—advice which, he trusted, would
be as seriously received as it would be given.
Rev. Jackson then read that resolution of
the Chicago Convention which proclaimed a
determination to put an end to the war for
the purpose of calling a convention of all the
States, to secure reconstruction "on the basis
of the Federal Union." There was lurking in
that resolution the cause and the argument
which should control every man in casting his
vote at the coming November election. It
did not seek to reconstruct the Union on the
basis of the Federal Constitution—it did not
propose to restore the land to peace by firmly
insisting on the power of the national author
ity and tightening the bonds of the Federal
Union. It simply offered to reconstruct on
the basis of the Federal Union. What kind
of a basis was that ? It was first completely
to destroy the old Union--to leave out such
States as were offensive to the men armed in
rebellion--to thrust aside the New England
States—to put them in the cold--and make
the basis of the Federal Union, the illus
tration of the power of shivery, the viudica
tiou of all that is asked for by the shiveholcleis
in rebellion. Mr. Jackson's argument of these
points, was alike adroit and lucid, abounding
with that logic and reason which are irresisti
We must not attempt further to sketch this
magnificent effort. fits appeals to the judg
ment of those present—its clear statements of
the facts involved in the struggle for the Pres
idency—its graphic description of the results
which would inevitably follow the re-election
or defeat of Mr. Lincoln, did not fail, we are
confident, of having a most powerful effect
upon all who were present.
The meeting adjourned with three cheers
for the Union, the Government and the army
defending both.

Street M. E. Church, to-morrow morning at

company is doing provost duty here. Quite a

are almost daily sent from here to general
rendezvous, at Philadelphia. A portion of our
company have already been to the city on this
mission. I would state here, for the informa

enjoying excellent health, and the boys, gen

Monday, Oct. 10, 1864.
Editor Telegraph:—Since I wrote you, on
Friday last, we have heard no canonading in
the direction of the Shenandoah Valley, and
from the number of trains going in that di
rection, laden with cavalry horses, troops, &c.,
supply and construction trains, every day
since, there remains no doubt that Moseby's
rapscallions were driven off. From six to
eight trains pass here daily, and return to
wards Manassas and Alexandria the same
evening. We have not been disturbed here,
neither do we anticipate any danger; although
we are obliged to keep a sharp look-out all
night, with loaded guns near us, and our
"blue-pill" boxes close at hand.
, Company I pickets the distance of a mile,
and is divided into nine squads of from eight
to twelve men in each squad--the squads are
all within hailing distance of each other; com
panies D and X are posted still further on, in
the direction of Salem, joining our right wing,
or the first platoon, tinder Capt. Miles.
Second platoon is in charge of Lieut. 0. S.
M'Curdy, a cool, gentlemanly officer, who has
seen service in Virginia before, and your cor
respondent has the honor to be "corporal of
the guard" for th's squad.
The men of company I were as might natu
rally be supposed, rather timid, and a trifle
"scarev," the first night we were placed on
duty, and many a stray shot grazed the back
of some inoffensive wild porker, strolling
coon, or hungry opossum, in search of sub
sistance. Ludicrous in the extreme, (but,
nevertheless, true,) are some of the yarns told
about the manner in which some of the men
behaved, the first night we passed in this par
John M'G—n the snake-man roused up
his corporal with "Hist corporal, what in the
d—l is that?—a man craping up the bank !
shall I fire ?" "Yes, py G—d, I see him too!"
said "Blue Head" his companion, and bang !
bang! rang out two musket reports in the
night air—and away scampered a wild hog
into the thicket, frightened out of her wits, or
at least a'year's growth of bristles ! John and
Blue Head got an extra lecture, from Danny
M—n, the sergeant, for alarming the line,
and neither has since raised a false alarm.
John S—k, a coal miner from the Wico
nisco coal district, in Dauphin county, is a
most exemplary, steady man, and a good,
faithful soldier. Whatever he is told to do, he
executes promptly. The other night Corpo
ral P—n told him; "S—k, keep your
eyes open to-night--let nothing pass your
post unchallenged--do you hear ?" "All
right,eorporal—l'll plow the defile out of every
pay (14 bass my post." About midnight, friend
S---.lrMoved.up and down his beat nervous
ly, peering from one aide of the road to
the other ; and espying an ignis faluus, or
trifling phosphorescent light; he blazed away
—rousing everybody out of their shebangs,
with the inquiry : "What's the matter?—
What's up? Any one shot ?" " Hello, S—k,
what in the d---l's name were you shooting
at?" S—k replied, from a mud-puddle at the
foot of an embankment, (where he had tum
bled from the concussion of his musket, or
from sheer fright,) "Vy corp'ral, some berson
he going to light a match to shake- -and I
chute him first I Don't like to lot a man cum

roan, S ?" k Wus none, corp'ral
pl ack hog--he jump into do bushes, clere!"
Poor. inoffensive S- —k will never hear the
last about ''treeing a hog !"
Another windy individual declared he espied
two cavalrymen in the pine thicket opposite
to his post, and sure enough he "blazed away,"
requesting his comrade to do so also! On
running across the road, the men discovered
an old blind horse that somebody turned away
as useless, no doubt--but not a hair was
harmed on dobbin's back ; and he gave a few
snorts, strolling away with head and tail erect,
still further into the " Sure enough
H--," shouted Corporal C y; "there
is a horse without the rider !" "Where is the
man, corporal," asked H—y, "did I kill
him ?" " You I—why, H--y, you would
miss the gable-end of a barn, I judge—for
you did not even touch a hair of this old
hose !"—Git mat !—set doim your gun, and
try some smaller game !" H has not
heard the last of that cavalryman shooting,
since—and he never will. There are, never
theless, many " plucky," cool-headed men in
our company, and they enjoy themselves as
much, and appear as unconcerned and self
possessed down here in Dixie, as they would
at home.
The other day, while away on a foraging
tramp a mile to the north of this post, we
passed over a spot of ground that was for
merly occupied by a rebel cavalry force. On
_around for trophies I came across a
box (which I have since converted into a
writing-desk) with this label upon it—" Lieut.
Col. Manning, Orange C. H.-20 3-inch rifle
shell, with charges-23 fusees,—August,
1862." The box is of rebel make, sure enough,
for it looks as if a botch-carpenter had put it
