TUESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 25, 1864,
NATIONAL UNION TICKET.
FOR VIOE PRESIDENT.
Chien justice of the U. S. Supreme Court
We alluded, some time since, to the fact
that Salmon P. Chase had been prominently
named as fit to occupy the seat on the bench
of the U. S. Supreme Court, made vacant by
the death of Chief Justice Taney. Since
then, we have been reminded by many of our
readers that Hon. Edwin M. Stanton had
been and still is referred to, in high legal
circles, as well as among the earnest friends
of tke Government, as one eminently qualified
to fill that vacancy. Mr. Stanton occupies a
splendid position as a lawyer, and is regarded
among the profession as possessing one of
the strongest and ablest legal minds in the
country. Indeed if Edwin M. Stanton has
reached pre-eminent greatness for any pecu
liar qualification, it is for vast knowledge and
skill and practice as a lawyer, in which per
haps, to-day, he has no superior among the
legal fraternity in the Union. Hence his fit
ness to occupy a seat on the Supreme Bench
will at once be admitted wherever his name is
suggested, and we believe that his elevation
to the Chief Justiceship would be accepted by
the nation and mankind as the assurance
that the eternal principles of freedom, on
which rest the only safe foundations of the
country's honor and prosperity, would be
maintained inviolate and secure at least dur
ing his life. While the names of such men
as Messrs. Stanton and Chase are before the
President, for selection of a successor to the
departed Taney, be cannot go amiss in his
choice. The appointment of either would
reflect great credit upon the Executive dis
crimination, and give full satisfaction to the
country at large.
Hon. Edgar Cowan
We have noticed that the copperhead or
gans in this and other States have been en
gaged in manufacturing capital for their men
and measures now before the country, with
statements to the effect that Hon. Edgar
Cowan, U. S. Senator from Pennsylvania, was
a supporter of M.C:ellan and Pendleton. Our
knowledge of Senator Cowan convinced us
that the statement was utterly false, and we
did not consider that it was worth the no
tice of a refutation. But since the copper
heads have evinced a disposition to persist in
their misrepresentation by continuing to claim
Senator Cowan as a supporter of the Chicago
Platform, it is only due to the friends of that
gentleman to state that he utterly and unqual
ifiedly repudiates both the candidates and the
platform of the Democratic party. He neither
believes in M'Clellan or the measures with
which he is identified. He has, on the con
trary, earnestly supported the re-election of
Mr. Lincoln, and is to-day among the warmest
of the upholders of the policy of the national
Administration in Pennsylvania. We trust
that our loyal contemporaries throughout the
Commonwealth will broadly contradict this
story of Senator Cowan's adhesion to copper
headism, as one of the weak inventions with
which the foes of the cause of the country
have of late abounded.
,A Good Test.
Every slaveholder in the South in favor of
rebellion as a means of strengthening slavery,
is also the friend and advocate of McClellan's
election to the Presidency, as .the surest way
of securing the triumph of the rebellion.
Every slaveholder in the South who es
teems the peace of the country, the stability
of the law, and the permanency of the Gov
ernment, as of greater importance than the
success of the rebellion or the safety of sla
very, is the friend of Lincoln's election, and
believes in the policy he has inaugurated for
the suppression of domestic insurrection.
The attitude of these two classes is wor
thy the consideration of the true friends of
the Union. It is the very ablest argument
that could be adduced against George B.
McClellan and in favor of Abraham Lincoln.
A Harrisburger on the Stump for Litt
coin and Johnson
We see by our exchanges, that A. J. Herr'
Esq., has made appointments to Speak at dis
tant points during the interregnum of the
Presidential election. He goes to Danville on
Wednesday next; to Easton,. on Thursday,
the let of November, and to Shippensburg on
the Saturday previous to the election. Our
friends in these localities may safely anticipate
hearing one of the ablest of the young
men now on the stump for the defence of the
Government, Col. Herr being justly regarded
wherever he is known as one of the most elo
quent and finished orators of the day.
Tint Prawn MAN who votes for George B.
McClellan, will secure the object he seeks, if
McClellan is elected, by the destruction of the
Government—while the peace man who votes
for Abraham Lincoln, if he is re-elected, will
establish permanent peace by making the
Government so strong as to render it invul
nerable to traitors within and foes without.
How long will it require a man to choose be
tween these establishments of peace
Ir Mr. Lincoln is the candidate of the reb
els, how comes it that no man ever heard of
one of our imprisoned braves getting his dis
charge to promote the success of their favor
ite? And how comes it that soldiers have
been paroled out of rebel hospitals, where
they have expressed a preference for McClel
lan, while others, the supporters of "Old
Abe," have been refused the boon ?
How M'Clellan Is to be Elected
He must be a blind man, who has not al
ready discovered that the prospect of electing
George B. M'Clellan President of the United
States, and the hope of results from that elec
tion, are both centered in and depend on the
success of the rebel armies in the field. If
Lee and Hood succeed in checking Grant and
Sherman, George B. M Clellan derives a fair
chance, from such operations, of becoming
President of the United States; or rather, let
us write, he will thereby be invested with
power to perpetuate the division which his
political friends and supporters have wrought
in the Union. To show how completely the
men who support M'Clellan, and thoie in re
bellion, understand each other, we need only.
ask our readers to peruse the annexed
paragraph from the Richmond Whig of
Oct. 11. It is an extract from a long arti
cle, setting forth the great service which M' -
Clellan has already been to the cause of the
South, and the still greater benefit he must
become, in the event of his investment with
civil power. But the main point with the
Richmond scribe is' to prove that M'Clellan's
success and that of the rebels are identical.
He does so, in this clear style :
"Should the present situation in Georgia
become more critical, and greater disasters
befal Sherman than those already reported in
Richmond ; should Sheridan be withdrawn
from the valley by the necessities of Grant ;
should Grant assault and be repulsed at Rich
mond—any or all of these disasters are possi
ble—the result of the Presidential election would
place M'Clellan in the White House."
Any honest man will be convinced, after
perusing and pondering the above extract,
that;George B. M'Clellan and General Lee
stand upon the same platform, so far as suc
cess is concerned. In the language of the
Chicago Tribune, when one wins the other
wins. When the star of the former pales, the
rushlight of the latter grows dim. The dif
ference in the parts assigned to them arises
solely from a difference in their talents. Lee
is better at fighting, and M'Clellan is better
at running. Lee is better at defence, M'Clel
lan at surrender. Lee is an open traitor,
M'Clellan is a secret danger. Does "Demo
cracy" blush to see that the defeat of our sol
diers, the slaughter of our armies, the tri
umph of the armed rebel hosts, the shame of
our country, is necessary to elect their gun
boat hero ? If such events must precede his
election, what may be expected to follow it?
If it is necessary to ruin the country in order
to save his political hide, is it worth saving
at such a price ? What is worth most, M'Clel
lan or the Union ?
Two Weeks From To-Day.
From to-day, two weeks, the great battle
for the preservation of the civil force and
glory of the nation will be fought. The time
is short, the issues momentous, and the duty
involved commanding. Until then, every in
telligent loyal man—every active Union man
—every true lover of his country and hater of
its foes, should consider himself a commit
tee to contribute to the triumph of Ins cause.
Wards must be aroused, cities canvassed,
townships traveled, and counties organized.
Let every man attend to his own locality—
let the men of the wards look to their own
localities--the men of the townships do the
same, and our word for it the aggregate result
will be a glorious victory. Combined and
united action is what is wanted. It
must not be expected that the differ
ent committees can do the work without the
co-operation of the masses of the party. The
committee can only move, and unless the
masses of the organization act in concert, the
result will be barren. Give us action, then.
Stern, persistent and untiring action, and we
will be blessed with a Government redeemed
and perpetuated by the meeting at the polls
in November !
The Copperhead Press
Judging by the tone of the copperhead
press, their conductors and those who back
them, give up the election of McClellan as a
forlorn hope, if not as a positive impossibil
ity. Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York are
conceded to Mr. Lincoln by the less hide-bound
of the copperhead organs—but we want our
friends in this State, particularly, not to be
deceived by the offer of such concessions.—
However well convinced the copperheads are
that they cannot succeed, they are still deter
mined to contest the election fiercely, as a
preparatory step towards any movement they
may now have in view after they have been de
feated. What we want, then; to counter
act the effect of such movements, is %the
pressing force of overwhelming majorities.
The re-election of Mr. Lincoln must be some
thing more than a political triumph. It must
carry with it the influence to change public
sentiment in the old, and create public feeling
in the new world in our favor. This is to be
effected alone by majorities—by decisive re
sults—by the overwhelming defeat of our foes.
Let us then not accept of a conceded victory.
Let us wrest triumph from our foes by teaching
them that we are the strongest—strong enough
for their defeat and the government's defence.
"Tan safety of our lines in Virginia cannot
fairly be left to Lee's present army, which has
too great a load on it already," says the
Richmond Whig. The rebels "have robbed
the cradle and the grave," writes Gen. Grant.
We demand an immediate cessation of hos
tilities, croak the Chicago Copperheads.
As OLD PATRIOT. —Michael Clark, a resident
of Amain township, and who is upwards of
91 years of age, voted on Tuesday last for the
first time in many years. The old man
thought his country needed the vote of every
true patriot, and as he had a son-in-law who
was going to vote the Copperhead ticket, he
determined to travel several miles for the pur
pose of counteracting the effect of his son
in-law's vote. He did so by depositing a
straight Union ticket—lf Kean County Miner.

An Excellent Speech by General
Major General Joseph Hooker was given n
public reception in Chicago on Monday last.
and made the following speech :
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen—No
words of mine can express my thankfulness for
the generous kindness with which Mr. Lamed
has spoken of me. No words of mine can ex
press to you my gratitude for the manner th
which you have 'received them. They are ap
preciated by me now, and they will be remem
bered by me as long as I live. lam still more
thankful for the kind manner in which the
speaker referred to my companions. They
are more deserving of your gratitude than I
am. They have been faithful, and they have
been devoted to the cause. If I have been
more prominent than they, it is for the reason
that circumstances placed me in command of
them. They are as good as I am; they have
done their duty, and Lhave done mine, so far
as I could. [Loud cheering.]
I enlisted in this rebellion for the rebellion.
I came in at the beginning, and I expect, if
my life is spared, to be in at the death. [Rap
turous applause.] I expect when it is over,
in common with all my companions, to claim
an honorable discharge. [Cheers.] I intend
to merit it. [Continued cheering] I feel
from your indulgent expressions to-night as
though I had merited it up to this time.
[Cheers.] lam as deeply, as earnestly inter
ested in the result as I was when I took up
arms at the beginning. [Applause.]
I know that this rebellionts staggering frora
its own weakness [cheers;] and if any doubt
is felt on the subject, as many newspapers
seem to indicate, let them read the speech of
the arch-traitor of the world. [Cheers.] Let
them read the speech of Jefferson Davis,
whose name, I am told, was loudly cheered in
these streets but a few weeks since. ["Shame!
Shame !"] He who has caused more human
misery and desolated more hearts, desolated
more homes, than has any other mortal man
from the beginning of all time [loud applause, ]
the enemy of governments and of all man
kind. And what does it mean when he is
cheered by Americans? When the enemy
of enemies is cheered by Americans in this
magnificent metropolis what does it mean?—
There is something wrong. ["That's so;"
"Traitors at home."] Yes, that is the wor
—traitors at home. [Prolonged applause.]—
He is directing his armies against your broth
ers, against your sons, against your own
blood. He is the author of it all, and yet he
is cheered, lam told, in these streets. What
does it mean ? Are we not Americans ? Do
we cease to love a government that has done
everything for us ? Have we got no pride of
country remaining? Is there any one here
who deserves to belong to no country? For
my part I want to belong to the proudest na
tion that exists on the globe. [Cheers.] I
want that this government should accomplish
its mission; it is a noble one, and neither Jeff
Davis nor the Copperhead traitors here can
ever prevent its accomplishment. [Cheers.]
You may as well try to stop the earth in its
motion around the sun as to stop this govern
ment. [Applause.] Its destiny is not yet
accomplished. We have a great mission to
perform. We have to sustain and vindicate
the honor of humanity, of right, of liberty,
and we will perform it. [Applause.]
As I shall leave this State to-morrow morn
ing, I would be doing injustice to myself not to
express my thankfulness for the kind manner
in which I was received here, and the splendid
hospitality that has overwhelmed me since I
entered your city, and the good feeling which
has been shown everywhere towards me. I
cart only tell you that I will try to merit it as
long as I live. It is my desire now to go to
the front, where I think I belong. Loud
cheers.] may not be able to do but
whether I do or not you shall hear from me as
ever performing my whole duty, whether that
be in meeting enemies here or enemies in the
confederacy. [Loud cheers.] I wish you all
Colonel Harmanus Neff, of Philadelphia,
was also among the speakers. He could not
conceive why he, a stranger, should be asked
to address them, but felt that no man at the
present time could refuse to speak. He was
proud to witness the gathering which he saw
before him—a gathering of patriotic men and
women—and was proud to see the existence
of their noble Board of Trade. Colonel Neff
concluded by urging them at home to support
the armies in the field.

Herxrex, October 25.
The steamship Mavrocordato arrived last
night seven days from Bermuda, with the
passengers of the captured:steamer Roanoke.
Mr. D. P. Burdon, a passenger. furnishes
the following additional particulars: "After
the Roanoke left Havana, her engines were
stopped to receive passengers approaching in
a boat, who proved to be Confederates under
Capt. Braine and Lieut. Paw, of Chesapeake
notoriety. After the capture Braine proposed
to Capt. Drew to bond the vessel for $50,000
in gold, payable at Bermuda, Braine to
keep the cargo. This proposition was
of course refused-by Captain Drew. The Ro
anoke arrived off Bermuda on Thursday
night, quite out of coals, but received a little
from a vessel. Nothing special happened
until Friday, when her passengers were taken
off by the Mathilde. The Roanoke had a
valuable cargo of bale tobacco, segars and
sugar. Braine and his associates were all lib
erated. Captain Drew and his crew left for
New York on the schooner Hound, on the

THE CREDITING OF OFFICERS
An order has been issued by-the Provost

CAPTURED REBEL FLAGS.
This morning General Custer, in company
with Captain Harrison White, Brigade In
spector of General Devin's Brigade, Menitt's
Division, called upon Secretary Stanton and
presented ten flags, captured in the recent vic
tory over Early. The captors Of the flags also
accompanied General Custer. Secretary Stan
ton gave the captors the thanks of the coun
try, and ordered them medals, and directed
that advance pay should be given to the men,
and that they should receive transportation
home and twenty days' furlough.
General Custer was made full Major Gen
eral, and Merritt Brevet Major General, for
their distinguished services in the recent vic
tory. Captain White, in this victory, was
conspicuous in bringino• b off the guns and pro
perty captured fro Early. He led the advance
of our cavalry into Strasburg, and in company
with Colonel Nichols, Ninth :New York Cav
alry, succeeded in capturing twelve wagons
in the rear of Early's train as they were mov
ing off from Fisher's Rill. If more men had
been with this advance party the entire wagon
train would have been captured.

--To the Editor of the Evening Telegraph:—
Through the columns of your journal I wish
to make some statements to the people of
Canada regarding the recent operations in

burning the town and surrounding villages,
in retaliation for the recent outrages commit

in the Confederate States.
"I am a commissioned officer of the Provi

"I do not wish my name coupled with the
epithets now applied without a knowledge on
the part of the people of Canada as to who we
are and what caused our action.
"I wish, also, to make a few statements as to
how myself and party were taken.
"I was seized on Canadian soil by Ameri
can citizens with arms in their hands, and vi
olently searched. My bocket book was taken
from me, and I was started towards the
United States. I reached out and caught the
reins of my horse, when three pistols were
leveled at my head, with threats to shoot the
scoxndrel dead if he moved.
"Some Canadian citizens then spoke up,
and the Americans, seeing the bailiff, started
with me toward him, two of them holding
arms in their hands.

even beyond it, brandishing guns and threat

in the midst of war, and ruled by a man des

Canada, and when the affair is investigated I
am satisfied that the citizens of Vermont, and
not my party, will be found to be the violators
