Weekly "Patriot & Union,"
THE CHEAPEST PAPER PI7I3LISHED IN
PENNSYLVANIA t
AND
THE ONLY DEMOCRATIC PAPER PUBLISHED AT
THE SEAT OF GOVERNMENT
FORTY-FOUR COLUMNS OF READINa MAT
TER EACH WEEK
AT THE LOW PRICE OF ONE DOLLAR
AND FIFTY CENTS!
WHEN
SUBSCRIBED FOR IN CLUBS OF NOT LESS
THAN TEN COPIES 70 ONE ADDRESS!
We have been compelled to raise the club subscription
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save our
selves from actual loss. Paper has risen, including
taxes, about twenty-five per cent., and is still rising;
and when we tell our Demodratie friends, candidly, that
we can no longer affdrd to sell the Weekly PATRIOT AND
Mims at one dollar a year, and must add fifty cents or
stop the publication, we trust they will appreciate our
position, and, instead of withdrawing their subscrip
tions, go to work with a will to increase our list in every
county in the State. We have endeavor,d, and shall
continue our efforts, to make the paper useful as a party
organ, and welcome as a news messenger to every fam.
ily. We flatter ourselves that it has not been without
some influence in producing the glorious revolution in
the politics of the State achieved at the late election;
and if fearlessness in the discharge of duty, fidelity to
the principles of the party, and an anxious desire to pro
mote its interests, with some experience and a moderate
degree of ability, can be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly PATRIOT AND UNION will not be less useful to
the party or less welcome to the family circle in the fu
ture.than it has been in the past. We confidently look
for increased encouragement in this great enterprise,
and appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to
lend UN his aid in running our subscription list up to
twenty or thirty thousand. The expense to each indi
vidual is trifling, the benefit to the party may be great.
Believing that the Democracy of the State feel the ne
cessity of sustaining a fearless central organ, we make
this appeal to them for assistance with the fullest confi
dence of success.
The same reasons which induce us to raise the prise
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Dailfpaper, the
price of which is also increased. 'Maddalena' cost to
each subscriber will be but trilling; and, while we can
not persuade ourselves that the change necessarily made
will result in any diminution of our daily circulation,
yet, were we certain that such wettlci be the once
quence, we should still be compelled to make it, or suf
fer a ruinous loss. tinder these circumstances we must
throw ourselves. upon the generosity, or, rather, the
justice of the public, and abide their verdict, whatever
it may be.
The period for which many of our subscribers have
paid for their paper being on the eve of expiring, we
take the liberty of issuing this notice, reminding them
of the same, in order that they may
RENEW THEIR CLUBS.
We shall also take it as an especial favor if our present
nubs cribers willurge upon their neighbors the fact that
the PATRIOT AND UNION ie the only Democratic paper
printed in Harrisburg, and considering the large amount
of reading matter, embracing all the current news of
the day, and
TELEGRAPHIC DISPATCHES
Prom everywhere up to the moment the paper goes to
press, political, miscellaneous, general and local news
market reports, is decidedly the
CHEAPEST NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED IN
THE STATE!
There is acarcely a village or town in the state in
which a club cannot be raised if the proper exertion be
made, and surely there are few places in alaioli one or
more energetic men cannot be found who are in favor of
the dissemination of sound Democratic doctrines, who
would be willing to make the effort to raise a club,

N.B.—The following law,passed.by Congress in 1860,
defines the duty of Postmasters in relation to the de
livery of newspapers to club subscribers :
(Soo Little, Bremen ¢ Co.'s seytpos of the Laws of 1860,
page 88, chapter 131, section 1.) -
"Provided, however, that where packages of new/Ta
pers or periodicals are received at any poet office directed
to one address, and the names of the club subscribers to
which they belong, with the postage for a quarter in ad
vance, shall be handed to the postmaster, he shall de
liver the same to their respective owners."
To enable the Postmaster to comply with this regula
tion, it will be necessary that he be furnished with the
list of names composing the club, and paid a quarter's
(or year's) postage in advance. The uniform courtesy
of Postmasters, affords the assurance that they will
cheerfeilyaccommodate club subscribers, and the latter
should take care that the postage, which is but a trifle
In each case, bepaid in advance. Send on the dubs.

As every man, woman and child in this broad
Commonwealth, and in every State under the
Federal Government, is deeply interested in
that act of Congress which is intended to mus
ter into the service a third grand army by con
scription, we give it in full as it passed both

the authority thereof, and it is, under the
Constitution of the United States, the duty of
the government to suppress insurrection and
rebellion, to guarantee to each State a Repub
lican form of government, and to preserve the
public tranquility: • And whereas, For these
high purposes, a military force is indispensa
ble, to raise and support which all persons
ought willingly to contribute: And whereas,
No service can be more praiseworthy and hon
orable than that which is rendered for {he
maintenance of the Constitution and Union,
and the consequent preservation of free gov
ernment; therefore,
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives of the United States of America in Con
gress assembled, That all able-bodied male citi
zens of the United Staten, and persons of for
eign birth who shall have declared on oath
their intention to become citizens under and in
pursuance of the laws thereof, b%tween the
ages of twenty and forty-five years, except as
hereinafter excepted, are hereby declared to
constitute the national forces, and shall be
liable to perform military duty in the service
of the United States when called out by the
President for that purpose.

following persons be, and they are hereby, ex

also, first, the Vice Pasident of the United
States, the judges of the various courts of the
United States, the heads of the various execu
tive departments of the government, and the
Governors of the several States: Second, the
only son- liable to military duty of a widow
dependent upon his labor for support: Third,
the only son of aged or infirm parent or pa
rents dependent upon his labor for support:
Fourth, where there are two or more sons of
aged or infirm parents subject to draft, the
father, or if he be dead, the mother may elect
which son shall be exempt: Fifth, the only
brother of children not twelve years old, hav
ing neither father nor mother, dependent upon
his labor for support: Sixth, the father of
motherless children under twelve years of age
dependent upon his labor for support: Sev
enth, where there are a father and sons in the
same family and household, and two of them
are in the military service of the United States
as non-commissioned officers, musicians, or
privates, the residue of such family and house
hold, not exceeding two, shall be exempt: And
no persons but such as are herein excepted
shall be exempt : Provided, however, That no
person who has been convicted of any felony
shall be enrolled or permitted to serve in said
forces.
SEC. 3. And be it further enacted, That the
national forces of the United States not now
in the military service, enrolled under this
act, shall be divided into two classes, the first
of which shali comprise all persons Subject to
do military duty between the ages of twenty
and thirty-five years, and all unmarried per
sons subject to do military duty above the age
of thirty-five and under the age of forty-five ;
the second class shall comprise all other per-
Sons subject to do military. duty; and they shall
not, in any district, be called into the service
of the United States until those of the first
class shall have been called.
SEC. 4. And be it further enacted, That for
greater convenience in enrolling, calling out,
and organizing the national forms, and for the
arrest of deserters and spies of the enemy, the
United States shall be divided into districts, of
which the District of Columbia shall constitute
one, each territory of the United States shall
constitute one or more, as the President shall
direct, and each congressional district of the
respective States, as fixed by a law of the State
