The Board of Military Claims.
Gen. W. W. Irwin, President of the State
Board of Military Claims, desires us to an
nounce that all persons holding warrants is

Claims, are requested to transmit the same to
the Hon. Isaac Slenker, Auditor General, for
re-issue and liquidation. The Board of Mili

Notice to Presidential Electors.
By the provisions of the law controlling the
election of Presidential Electors, it is made the
duty of the Governor of the Commonwealth
to ascertain the number of votes given for
each person so voted for, and shall thereupon
declare by proclamation the names of the per
sons thus elected, and shall cause a notifica
tion of his election to be delivered to each
person so chosen, on or before the last We&
nesday of November next after such election.
According to this provision, this notification
to the Electors should be issued to-morrow,
Wednesday, November 30th. But it appears
that some fifteen counties are yet to make a
return of the vote cast at their different elec
tion districts in November. The reason fOr
this delay is offorded in the law extending the
electoral franchise to the soldiers, in which
the time for the meeting of the return judges
is extended. Up to noon to-day, some fifteen
counties had not reported their vote, a delay
fully explained by the extension of the' time
for the meeting of return judges. Of course
no notification can issue to the persons elect
ed, until the counties referred to have report
ed. Returns from these counties may possi
bly reach the Secretary's office to-day, or at
the latest to-morrow, when immediate steps
will be taken to issue the proper notification.
Sherman's operations in Georgia will have
an influence on more matters than the mere
existence of the Confederacy, and will be
sensibly felt in commercial and finan
cial circles long before they have any
practical effect on the affairs of the Gov
ernment. Already the sharks who have been
bleeding the country on the gold question
begin to give signs of pain, and are making
arrangements for the re-action which must
soon overtake and destroy their piratical busi
ness. If Sherman is successful—if he plants
his victorious flag on the shores of the Atlan
tic, then gold will fall in the market with a I
crash that must bruise the head of more than
one "bear." A victory by Sherman such as is
now anticipated by military men, will have
more effect upon the gold market than all the
legislation, all the tariffs, all the stringent
revenue laws that could fie passed during the
approaching short session of Congress. In
deed, we are now dependant on the blows of
Sherman to keep gold within any reasonable
limits during the remainder of the war. The
fact is, gold has been selling far beyond its
real value, if that value derives its rate from
the condition of the national finances and the I
amount of the national debt. Our national
debt has never been half as large as we have
natural resources (to say notking of our busi
ness ability) to meet. The gold speculators
have existed entirely on the ill-created appre
hension of the people. They have taken ad
vantage of their own fabrications, and ,forced
panics to a degree which has been far more
disastrous to the business and the labor of
the country, than the actual expense of the
war. In view of these facts, the country will
laugh at the calamities of the gold specula
tors, when reverse overtakes them in their
traffic. It may be possible that for a while
spasmodic increases in the price of gold will
be observable, but it cannot be denied that
the end of the speculation is approaching, and
that the precious metal will speedily come
within its standard range. The credit of a
nation like ours—the welfare of a mighty peo
ple destined for the achievment of a gieat
good, cannot, must not much longer be sub
ject to the speculation of foreign Jews of the
Rothschilds and Belmont older, or to home
money-greeds, who would be satisfied to let
the country run the danger of becoming a
wreak, if by the speculation in its necessities
they could make a salvage fee.
GEORGE D. PRENTICE received a pass
recently from the President of the - United
States, to go beyond our lines, thence to
Richmond, whither he goes to implore Jeff
Davis to pardon his (Prentice's) son, who is
Row in Hood's army under sentence of death
for murder. Prentice alleges that his pon
acted in self-defence ; and, it is urged in jus
tification of the President, in granting him a
pass, that Mr. Lincoln heaped coals of fire on
the head of George D. Prentice. This is all
very finely said and no doubt very kindly
meant. But the country is betting weary of
such fineness and kindness. The whole breed
of the Prentices have been brawlers, and no
man in Kentucky did mere to aid the rebel
cause by embarrassing the operations of the
national authorities, than George D. Prentice.
His plea to Jeff Davis, in appealing for the
pardon of his assassin son, will be made up
of accounts of his services to treason. It
would have been much better, then, to have
kept the old snake at home, when he has be
come harmless, and permitted the rebels .to
become the executieners of one of their own
kind. By this means, the south would have
been ridden of one fiend : more. ,
,Tomi H. Yonne, editogrin-ehiof of the Phil
adelphia Press, has been on a tour through the
oil regions of Western Pennsylvania.
Let By-Goner be By-Goner
We have no spiteful tendencies in our na
tore, nor are we disposed to be resentful.
Hence, so far as we are personally concerned,
we are cheerfully in favor of. letting the by
gones of the political Contest which has just
closed so gloriously for the cause of the 'Union;
civil liberty and civilization, be by-gones.
But there are others to consult besides our
selves. Our weakness in this matter of for
giveness will not meet the accord of all our
fellow-citizens, simply because there aro
those who have deeply suffered at the hands
of the political opponents with whom we
have been forced to contend. By the record
which those opponents made, they, will here
after be judged, so that every man in the
north who openly arrayed himself, in hostility
to the cause of the Government, will be made
to feel, as long as he lives, the disgrace of his,
action,,as.well as the diabolical heinousness
of the object he sought to accomplish.
The recent vote in the different armies now
in the field contending with traitors, exhibits
fairly the true feeling of the soldiers. Whhh
rebellion was precipitated, thousands, and
hundreds of thousands of men left the peace
ful walks of life, abandoned prosperous trades
and professions, left happy and attractive
homes, to peril their lives in defence of a
government forming the source of all this
prosperity, peace and happiness. The civil
rights, the free institutions, and the domestic
ties of the people in the free and loyal States,
were all equally involved in the objects of the
slaveholders' rebellion. To destroy the Union
in order to benefit the institution of slavery,
was merely the first step in the bloody pro
gramme devised by the conspirators. Once
the Union was destroyed, and the Govern
ment thereby weakened, aggression would
have followed aggression, as the victorious
slayeholders usurped one right after the
other of the conquered North, until every
white laboring man in the now free States
would have found himself the subject of a
master more cruel and exacting than those
from whom the serfs of Russia are now being
released. And just at this point we arrive at
the position where the Democratic leaders
have forever made themselves odious to the
free masses of the North. These leaders
never denied that the conspirators of the
South were contending for the enslavement
of all labor, and in the face of this fact, when
the free white men of the North were strug-
gling with conspirators who aimed at their en
slavement, at this very period, the Democratic
leaders took the bold ground of opposition to ex
tending the elective franchise to the soldier. Will
the American soldier, can he forget such
treatment.? Will such, by Bones BE bygones?
There is something ominous in the vote of
the soldier on this subject. That vote in all
the armies has almost been unanimous in
support of all the issues involved in the ad
ministration policy to crush rebellion. From
this we are satisfied that the soldiers in the
field, in regard to:Coppetheadism at home,
are not satisfied that ,"by-gorses shall be by
gones." They do not see the propriety of for
getting that thereltre those in the rear who
do not endorse the efforts they are making
for the restoration of the Union by force of
arms, when the rebels themselves have de
clared that there 'Was no available argument
for such a purpose save the bayonet's point.
They do not recognize that such candidates
for the Federal Congress are any more enti
tled to their votes than if they were :offered"
for the same kind. of a gathering to meet at
the rebel capital. Their votes show. thitzi
fact as plain as the bright sun at noonday,
and the inevitable conclusion is that Peace
Democratic candidates for national legislation
are not much in favor with the army. By
gones may be by-goner with the Democracy
at periods when it is desirous of success,
for the sake of place and spoils, but the prin
ciple does not apply to men who peril their
lives in behalf of their country and its insti
4. Hog Winder:"
• The New York Evening Post, under this
caption, prints a scathing article in relation
to' the brute Winder, who has had in charge
the Federal prisoners in and about Richmond.
When the sufferings of our poor fellows,
confined iu the Libby Prison and on Belle Isle
near Richmond, became known, a cry of
horror was raised here and inEurope over the
barbarity of the rebels. What then did Davis
and the other rebel leaders do? Did they or
der the refitting of the Libby prison? Did
they court-martial and punish Winder and his
subordinates, who perpetrated this long series
of cruel outrages ? Did they explain that
these things oleurred without their know
ledge, and were disapproved by them?, Not
at all; but when the evidence grew too clear
for them; when they found that if these cruel
ties continued to be perpetrated under their
eyes in and near Richmond, they, the rebel lead
ers, would be everywhere held responsible for
them, they—removed the prisoners. They
sent them from Belle Isle and the Libby to
Andersonville; from a place where their cries
could be heard and their sufferings known, to
one so obscure, so remote, that no inhumani
ty practiced there could be immediately
known; a place where the prisoners were in a
tenfold 'degree more at the mercy of their jail
ors. And whom did they send to be the
jailer ? The same infamous wretch, Winder,
whose cold-blooded and systematic cruelties
had made the prisons,. of Belle Isle and the
Libby a scandle no longer endurable so near
to Davis ; the same who, known from his
early youth at West Point as "Hog Winder, '
notorious ever since in the old army for his
meanness, his abominable cruelty, and,
shunned as the possessor of every shameful
vice, completed his infamy by the systematic
'maltreatment of helpless prisoners of war in
Richmond—this person was continued in his
place, and was sent by Davis, with his victims,
to Andersonville. Would this have been done
had not the intention been to starve and ever*
way ill-treat our men? Would not Davis have

The following from the Agitator, the gallant
organ of the Repttbbeans of Tioga county,
is frankly uttered. It is according to Cobb's'
nature. to say and do just things :
Now that the battle is far progressed and
decisively in favor of Union, we cannot for
bear giving praise to the unflagging zeal and
tireless energy of the Chairman of the Union
State Central Committee. Gen. Cameron had'
king ago established his reputation for energy
and superior executive ability. If anything
could add lustre to that reputation, his con
duct of the campaign in Pennsylvania unques
tionably may. No man has more entirely
given his time and energies to the work. Day
and night at the post of duty, he has de once
been sentinel and Commander in-chief. No
duty has been neglected, none delayed.
He accepted the position with reluctance.
He will retire from it with the proud con
sciousness of duty performed. He has borne
himself above the scurvy tricks of politicians,
and led to victory through a vigorous prose
cution of honorable warfare.

the result in the XXlst Congressional District.
It exhibits fully the desperation of the

by the soldiers' vote. But as the return

STATE OF GEORGIA, EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT,
MTTT3MGEVILLE, Nov. 19, 1864.—The whole
people understand how imminent is the danger
now threatening the State. Our cities are
being burned, our State laid waste, and our
wives and children mercilessly driven from
their homes by a powerful enemy. We must
strike like men for freedom, or we must sub
mit to subjugation.
Death is preferred to, the loss of liberty. All
must rally to the field fcir the present emer
gency, or the State is overrun. I therefore,
by virtue of the authority vested in me by the
statutes of this State, hereby order a levy
en masse of the whole white male population
residing or domiciled in the State, between
sixteen and fifty-five years of age, except such
as are physically unable to bear arms, which
physical defect must be plain and undisputa
ble or they must be sent to camp for exami
nation, and except those engaged in the Leg

ernment, which are by the •recent acts of the
Toegislature declared exempt from compulsory
service. All others are absolutely required,

the crime of desertion.
Volunteer organizations formed into com
panies, battalions, regiments, brigades or di
visions, will be accepted for forty days, even
if they approximate to the number which is
required in each organization by the militia
laws of the State, which were in force prior to
the late act.
All police companies formed in counties
'for home defence will report, leaving at home
for the time only those over fifty-five years of
age; and all those having Confederate details
or exemptions, who, by the late decision of
the Supreme Court of this State, are held to
be liable to State militia service, and bound
to obey the call-of the Governor. All such
refusing to report will be arrested by the po
lice forces or by any aid-de-camp or other
officer, of this State, and carried immediately
to the front.
The necessary employees of railroads, now
actively engaged, and the necessary agents of
the express company and telegraph operators,
are, from the necessity of their services in
the present emergency, excused. All ordained
ministers of religion of a church or synagogue
are also excused.
All railroad companies in this State will
transport all persons applying for transporta
tion to the front, and in case any one refuses,
its President, Superintendent, Agent and em
ployees will be immediately sent to the front..
All aids de camp and other State officers
are required to be active and vigilant in the
execution of the orders contained in this
proclamation, and all Confederate officers are
respectfully invited to aid State officers in
their vicinity, in sending forward all persons
hereby ordered to the front.
The enemy has penetrated almost to the
centre of your State. If every Georgian able
to bear arms would rally round him he would
never be able to escape.

Capture of the Rebel Ex-Gen
Roger A. Pryor.
The rebel ex-General, Roger A. Pryor, now
a private soldier in the Confederate army, was
captured on Friday last, by the Fifth Corps
pickets of the Army of the Potomac, while
attempting to exchange papers with our pick
ets, as a retaliatory act for the recent cap
ture of Capt, Burbridge, by the rebel pickets,
under similar circumstances.
He says that General Lee had issued an
order for the return of Captain Burbridge on
Saturday, and he will probably be returned as
soon as Burbridge is sent back. Since his
capture Captain Burbridge has been dismissed
from the army for disobeying the order for
bidding the exchange of papers, or holding in
tercourse with the enemy under any pretence
whatever. Pryor has been brought to Wash
ington and corsmitted to the Old Capitol
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.---The information
from the Army of the Potomac, on Sunday
evening, is, that the usual amount of picket
firing was heard along the front, but beyond
that all was quiet.
In Gen. Butler's Department the picket fir
