Wood, of Philadelphia, presented to Gov.
Curtin, a large silver medal representation
of St. Peter and St. Paul's Cathedral, of
Philadelphia. The ceremony took place in
the Executive Chamber. In presenting the
medal, Father Maher said:
Your E z ediencv—l have been deputed, by
Right Rev. Bishop Wood, to present to you
this beautiful medal, being a representation
of St. Peter and St. Paul's Cathedral, Phila
delphia. It is no part of my business to dis
cuss its metalic value, but I have been in
st,l-ucted by Bishop Wood to express for him
his admiration for you as a civil officer, as
well as ?lie esteem for you as a man. The
Cathedral of which this medal is a facsimile,
is now one o f the principal adornmenta of the
great commerCial metropolis of flip State.
Let me simply add, for you, sir, the expres
sion of my own esteepi, while I now hand
over to your keeping the medal, with the pre
sentation of which I was-charged.
Gov. Curtin, in reply, briefly said it was
always a pleasure for him to receive the ac
knowledgments of friendship for himself per
sonally, as it was to know that his official
acts had received the approval of his
citizens. He accepted the medal in the spirit
with which it was presented. The Cathedral
which it commemorates is indeed an adorn
ment to our great metropolis, and he desired
Father Maher to return to Bishop Wood the
expression of reciprocity of his most sincere
feeling of esteem.
The medal is ten inches in circumference,
and of solid silver. On one side is a raised
front view of the Cathedral, on the obverse a
depressed perspective view of the interior,

LETTER FROM CAPTAIN FENN
Copperhead Falsehood Exposed
201.8 T REOPMPNP P. V., • '‘
CAMP SLOUGH, VA., Nov. 28, 1864.
En. TELEGRAPH—Sir: —I have been handed
a copy of the Patriot and Union of the 11th
inst., in which appears a letter from my com
pany, so replete with falsehood and low slan
der, that I beg of you to permit this answer
to appear. The letter sets out with the decla
ration that "some of our best men went to the
polls at company headquarters to vote, and
after taking an oath as to age, and payment
of taxes, were allowed to vote, but as soon as
the board discovered for whom they voted,
they called the M'Clellan voter back and told
him his vote was challenged," etc. I wish to
stamp that entire assertion as wholly false,
coined from the whole cloth, and ridiculously
untrue in the eyes of every man in my com
pany who was present. The letter goes on
for half a column to fulminate treason, and
speak of the writer's qualities as a soldier;
and for fear that the public may not know
who this good soldier is, I would name him as
David L. Martin, of Lewisburg, Pa., a private
in my company. To show how senseless and
truthless the entire letter is, I may simply re- ,
mark, (not to enlarge upon so unworthy a
case,) that the writer is a minor and was not
at any time on election day within one mile of
the polls. My company election'was held at
my headquarters, in a frame house on the.
Manassas Gap Railroad, in Prince William
county, Va., and afaixer election was not held
at any poll in the United States. But seven
men in the company could be found so far for
getful of their dignity as soldiers to vote for
M'Clellan—"a played out" GeneraL As forthe
man who ran away from a locomolive, T have
aimptirlo assert most positively that he voted
for M'Clellan! The board of election officers,
was composed of as intelligent and honorable
men as ever held an election, some of whom
have frequently been on the election board at:
home. I was an outsider altogether, and only
done my duty as a citizen by voting, and as
commanding officer, by preventing any •trou
ble, which,fortnnately, there was no signs of at
any time. The election was quietly held fa the
morning, arid in the afternoon we vacated the
f or t and fail,back to Marumisag duziet,4ll3.

I into the article, it is my duty to say that he is
a faithful, honest officer, and a far better sol
'dier than his traducer. I deem this' simple
statement due to the dignity of the company,
who were unanimously for Lincoln, except
seven man. Is not that a good record?

• HAILISBIIBG, Feb. Bth, 1864.
C.A. Bassvmm-Dear Sir: I have used Brown's
Bronchial Troches, Wistar's Lozenges, and
other preparations; for hoarseness and throat
troubles; and, in comparison with them all,
can cheerfully commend your own as a most
admirable specific for public speakers and
singers, in' cases of hoarseness, coughs and
colds. I have found them serving in time of
need, most effectually.
Yours truly, T. H. ROBINSON,
Pastor of N. S. Presbyterian Church.

value of Dumyat's Troches.

To C. A. Banlyanrr.-Pedr Sir: ; In flea habit
of speaking very freqrieritly, and in places
where the vocal organs are NVirnitich taxed,
I have found the need of Some gentle expec
torant, and that want has been supplied in
your excellent Troches.
I consider them very far superior to any
Lozenges that I have ever used, int reproving
speedily that huskiness of the voice arising
from its too frequent use, and impairing the
effectiveness of the delivery of public addres
ses. Yours, &0.,
JNO. WALKER JACKSON,
Paster of the Locust St. Methodist Church.
To C. A. 13harsvenr—Dear Sir : Having used
your Troches, I am free to say they are the
beat I have ever tried, and take great pleasure
in recommending them to all persons afflicted
with sore throat or huskiness of voice, arising
from public speaking or singig.
