Weekly "Patriot & Union,"
THE CHEAPEST PAPER PUBLISHED IN
THE ONLY DEMOCRATIC! PAPER, IT(BLIVIND AT
THE SEAT OF GOVERNMENT !
FORTY-FOUR COLUMNS OF READING MAT
TER EACH WEEK!
AT THE LOW PRICE OF ONE DOLLAR
AND FIFTY CENTS!
SUBSCRIBED FOR IN CLUBS OF NOT LESS
THAN TEN COPIES 70 ONE ADDRESS!
We have been compelled to raise the club subscriptism
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save Ar
selves from actual loss. Paper has risen, irOhng
taxes, about twenty-five per cent., and is still rising ;
and when we tell our Democratic friends, candidly, that
we can no longer afford to sell the Weekly PATRIOT AND
Union 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 endeavored, 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 no‘be less useful to
the party or less welcome to the family aircle 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 us his aid in running our mipscription 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 ns to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Daily'paper, the
price of which is also increased. The additional cost to
each subscriber will be but trifling; 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 would be the cone
quence, we should still be compelled to make it, or suf
fer a ruinous loss. Under 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
subscribers will urge upon their neighbors the fact that
the PATRIOT AND UNION is the only Democratic paper
printed in Harrisburg, and considering the large amount
of reading matter, embracing all the current news of
the day, and
From everywhere up to the moment the paper goes to
press, political, miscellaneous, general and local news
market reports, is cleaLleolly t. - 443
CHEAPEST NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED IN
There is scarcely 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 which one or
more energetic men cannot be found who are in favor of
the dissemination of sound Democratic doctrine; who
would be willing to make the effort to raise a club.
DEMOCRATS OF THE INTERIOR !
Let us hear from you. The existing war, and the ap
proaching sessions of Congress and the State Legisla

0. BARRETT & 00., Harrisburg, Pa
N. B.—The following law, passedby Congress in 1860,
defines the duty of Postmasters in relation to the de-
Livery of newspapers to club subscribers :
(See Little, Breeeitj seem oftke Laws of 1860,
page 38: chapter 132, sec - elms 1.)
h - owel;er, that where packages of newspa
pers or periodicals are received at any post 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 seine to their respective owners."
To enable the Postmaster to comply with this regula
tion, it will be necessary that be 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
cheerfully accommodate club subscribers, and the latter
should take care that the postage, which is but s trifle
in each case, lbepaid in advance. Send on the clubs.

LETTER FROM BILTON HEAD.

DRAB PATRIOT : What fun we have! A ne
gro is 271 per cent. better than a whitman.
A white man or woman bas to have a descrip
tive list, containing his or her age, color of
eyes, height, where born, when arrived, and
how engaged; a negro is a free agent, can do
as he pleases, almost—or nothing, if that suits
There has been quite a number of sprees,
since Foster's expedition arrived, between the
officers of his command and Gen. Hunter. Se
veral are under arrest, and General Foster has
gone North. We have about 21 orders daily in
reference to issues to the officers of Foster's
command, and they are as often counterman
ded. On the whole, it is much like a difficulty
between a lot of school boys, of the class
"shysters"--such as were generally excluded
from participating in the amusements of those
who were of a more manly turn of mind, or
business habits. There is not one per cent. of
those in this Department (and I suppose the
others are like them) but whose sole aims are
to secure the greatest amount of popularity,
comfort and money—not caring an iota about
the country, present or future.
If I had a situation out of this Department
that would pay half as well as this does, I
would willingly accept it.
This is ono of the finest countries for game
I ever saw. There have been killed on this
and the neighboring islands quite a large num
ber of deer this winter, some parties bringing
in five or six at a time. There is no end to
the wild ducks, and other water fowl of every
variety, and if old "lions Tunder" was here
with his out-lines, he might catch "grout oda,"
and need not lose his lines.
The weather is quite pleasant, except of
mornings and evenings, when a little fire makes
There is quite a stir at this place which, I
suppose, will put us in about the same condi
tion we were more than a year ago. A large
portion of the ordnance stored in the yard here
is being sent to different places, from which it
was removed, to refortify them. When that ie
done we yin be just about witertt Aa were,

Gen. Stevenson was put under arrest for hav

Abolitionist) making the information. That's

THE .1 7 .11157' RESERVES.
The story started of the insubordination of
this faithful regiment is satisfactorily explained
in the following communication taken from
the Washington Evening Star :
C Alsip IsT ItEG. PA RESERVE:3, Feb. 28, 1863.
Great injustice is done to this regiment by
the gross mis-statement published in your is
sue of Friday, the 27th instant, in reference to
an occurrence that took place here on the morn
ing of that day, and trust you will give this a
place, that the injury to the officers and men
may be corrected. This regiment has been
on duty here under Brig. General Alex. Hays,
commanding third brigade Casey's division,
Twenty-second Army Corps, now fourteen
days, during which time not a single case of
insubordination has occurred. The duty as
signed to it thus far has been to guard at bri
gade headquarters, occupy two picket posts,
and fatigue duty, requiring a daily detail of
two officers and about sixty men. Every duty
was promptly and faithfully performed by of
ficers and men, and frequently received the
commendations of the General and his staff.
On the night referred to in the article, the
regiment was not on picket duty, but was in
their encampment; one post only, as picket by'
order, was occupied by a corporal and three
men, who did not sleep while on duty, and their
arms were not taken from them.
There were but eight officers in the regiment
at the time, two of those being unfit for duty,
leaving the number so small that they came on
duty in some oases every other day, and in
one instance the officers performed, duty sev
enty-two hours out of ninety-six, and, the men
forty-eight consecutive hours. The officers and
men of the Ist Regiment Pennsylvania Re
serves have not been guilty of sleeping on their
post, neither have they been. guilty of "dis
graceful conduct," or of "insubordination."—
The officers, we are glad to say, can "signally"
clear themselves from suspicion of sympathy
with insubordination,and if twenty-one months
service has not made better officers and men
than the article in your paper indicates, we
agree with you that we "should be summarily
reduced to the ranks," or "drafted into other
regiments." We ask an insertion- in your pa
per, that our friends may see that we are not
yet fallen into an "unorganized mob," but
that we will stick to our glorious old flag,
which leads to duty.

The Star then proceeds to give the cause of
this groundless accusation—in which it comes
out that the General in command was drunk!
Who is General Hays ?
gi The information on which we based the
statement with reference to this regiment,
which these gentlemen say is unfounded, was
official ; the facts, as we stated them, having
been formerly reported to the headquarters of
this military department. It is naw alleged
that the key to this unfounded report is the
fact that the officer (Gen. Alex. Hays) waking it
was drunk. The whole matter is at this time
under due investigation.
We may not inappropriately add here, that
no other regiment stood fairer in the service,
before being reported on Friday last for being
asleep on picket duty, than this same regiment
of let Pennsylvania Reaervee.—En. STAR.
STICK TO THE UNIoN.—The Abolition papers
say that the attempts of Northern Democrats to
secure the return of the Southern States to the
Union, are laughed at and ridiculed. That
such is the case with some of the fire-eating
journals, is true—but who believes that such
is the general feeling in the Confederate States?
and if it is so, what but the course of the Abo
litionists has produced such a feeling ? They
tell us that the South is determined not to re
turn to the old Union, and that Democrats are
wasting their breath in efforts to induce them
to do so ! The trial his not been fairly made,
and will not be made, probablyeuntil the De
mocratic party, having the power, shall make
an earnest effort in that direction. But if these
Republican editors are so confident that the
seceding States will not return, for what are
we keeping up such an army and proposing to
add 150,000 negroes to it, besides ? If they
wont give up their rebellion for love of the old
Union, can they be brought back by force ?
If the radicals are right in their calculations,
what is the use of sacrificing the lives of any
more of our young men in a fruitless war, in
which nothing is to be gained ?
But the fact is, these men of the North do
not want the Union restored as it was, or they
would not reason as they do in the premises.—

—but they are trying to widen the gulf, av i d
