We have been compelled to nibs the dub subscription
pries, to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save our
selves from actual lose. Paper has risen, including
taxes, about twenty-five per cent., and is still rising;
and when we tell our Democratic friends, Candidly, that
we can no longerafford to sell the Weekly Pastor AND
Union at one dollar a year, and meat add fifty cents or
stop the publication, we trust they will appreciate oar
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 .endsavored, 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 titate achieved at the late election;
and if fearlessness in the discharge of duty, fidelity to
the principle's of the party, and an anxiousdesire to pro
mote its interests, with tome experience and a moderate
Ogre* of ability, can be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly Pcesior AID UNION will not be less useful to
the party or less welcome to the fondly circle in the fu
ture thou it has been in the pad. W• confidently look
tor ins:framed encouragement in this great enterprise,
and appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to
lend us, his aid la running our aupsoription list up to
twenty or thirty thousand. The exposnie to each indi
vidual is trifling, the benefit to the party may be great.
Believing thacthe Demooracy of the State feel the no-
Mffility or mustaining a fearless central organ, we make
this appeal to them for sedateness with the tallest son&
deuce of mama.
The : same . reasons .whi.M.lpfluee us to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in mud !vo t thelailfpaper, the
prig* of which is also increased. Thead,21 4 44 1 4. 03 5t to

not persuade ourselves that the change nemesarilymade
will result in, any diminution of our daily circulation,
yet, were, we certain that such would be the eonss
queues, we ihould still be compelled to make it, or cur
fer a ruinous loss. Under these elrenmstanees we must
throw ourselves upon the generosity, or, rather, the
justice of the public, and abide their verdict,. whatever
it may be.

And myself seated to write and let you and
them know how the Eighteenth ie getting along
in the front of an armed force of rebel cavalry
As we were camped sometime around Har
risburg you will certainly know we were (as
we now are) a fine body of men. We are offi
cered by good men, some of them from your
noble oily, Lieutenant Colonel James Gowen
and Major W. B. Darlington being residents of
your town, while captain Freeland, of, Com
pany E, who has already won laurels, are from
Dafiphin county. We left Harrisburg with no
arms and have got but few since. We have
4300e/fined sabres and carbines, while other
regiments SF our brigade, doing the tame duty
as we, have sereottble arms, good sabres,
Colt's Navy pistols and Vrp's improved car
This morning some of the Eighteenth re
fused to go on picket for want of proper arms
to defend themselves. No wonder Capt. Mosby
said to some of our prisoners, "You are not
worth taking, you have no arms." To say the
truth, the Eighteenth Pennsylvania Cavalry
is not fit for service. We are called cowards
and- hospit . -soldio' uw by tl. _Fifth New York
and First Virginia.
Is it not inhuman to send men to the front
who are not capable of defending themselves
against well drilled, well armed and efficient
soldiers, such. as Stuart's Cavalry! No
doubt some of the friends and relatives of the
members of the Eighteenth would think it odd
to hear of them being called cowards, &c. No
one that knows Colonel Gowen or Captain
Freeland would say they are anything but
soldiers. Why Company $ has already
estsbliebed s reputation which pill follow
them through life. They have done duty like
veterans of twenty years, always led on by the
heroic Freeland or gallant Tresonthwick.
They charged into Middleburg and drove
the videttes, of White's battalion within a
few rode of their camps. They captured over
$5,000 worth of contraband goods, such as
phosphorus baking soda, boots, show, and
other things invaluable to the rebels. For
this they got no credit, to say nothing of
prisoners and horses brought in by Company E.
We have now been out over six months and
have received no pay. Certainly some person
is to blame, as they are to blame on account
of US having no twins. Our pay rolls were
sent in and the boys patiently waited for their
pay, but none came. Our requisition for
arms was sent to the proper officers, but none
came. What's to be done? Our quarter.

The men of .tbe. Eighteenth are willing to
fight and do.anything to settle this rebellion,
but at the same time we want to be noticed
and used as soldiers are ; we don't want to be
behind the rest of the boys from Pennsylva
nia. We left the iron hills of the Keystone
State to do soldiers' duty, which we will do,
if armed. We will carry terror into the very
heart of rebeldom. Our motto is, "The Union
and Constitution must and shall be preserved."
We cannot coincide with the views of th o s e
who, for any reason, would terminate this war
before the preservation of the Union and Ccr _
etitution is assured. We feel impel' ed by
every motive of patriotism to raintain the
General Government in all
to settle this most up- .
But give what is justly due us; give us' a
_„ance on equal footing with other soldiers;
let the proper authority be notified that some
families are feeling the effects of the soldiers
not being paid. We don't consider ourselves
soLiiers ; we wear the uniform, but, as they
say, we can't back it up. Our men are dis
heartened to be used in this way; they are
tired of seeing their comrades shot down, or
heating of this or that post being taken for
want of proper means to defend it, and save
their credit as Pennsylvanians.
Well may one of our boys say we are in the
mud, but if the rebels come we will meet them
with muddy hands and horse pistol graves—l

officers have pistols and efficient•sabres ; but

EXCITING SCENE IN THE PRUSSIAN
CHAMBER OF REPRESENTATIVES.
The Prussian Chamber of Deputies was re•
candy the scene of an excitement as extraor
dinary as almost any which even revolution
ary times have witnessed. In the debate on
the Polish Question, the Premier, von Bis
marck, denounced the Liberal members in so
outrageous a manner that the President of the
Chamber would not stand it 'any longer, and
sternly rebuked the Minister. The Minister
defied his authority, and a scene of extraordi
nary excitement prevailed.
The following account of it is from the Bee-
Ha correspondence of The London Star e .
The Minister President (after taking • short
survey of the. proceedings on the Polish Ques
tion) continued :
The House demanded the discussion, and in
the course of it German orators behaved in a
manner previously unheard of. Deputy Wal
deck compared the calling in.of the reverses
to the sale of Hessian subjects to'North Amer
ica. Deputy Von Unruh hinted, amid your
hearty applause, that, if from the measure of
the Government, foreign complications should
arise, the means for the defense of the country
would be refused to the King. Is not that as
much as saying to foreign powers : "Como
here ; now's your time ; the moment is favor
able ; Prussia is defenseless r [Loud eon-
Indiction, and cries of "Oh 1 oh !"] lam re-'
joiced to 6::" that you have at least one express
sion of indignation-for such things ; that you
have a little patriotism left. l'Uproakof con
tradiction. from all sides of the House, and
shouts of "Order ! order !"]
The Vice-President, Behrend, (who occu
pied the place-of the President to day)—l beg
first for silence. The Minister-President has
declared that he rejoices at this expression of
indignation. Whether the Minister-President
is pleased to express here his joy at what the
House has done or thinks of doing, is his own
affair ; a call to order Ido not regard as called
The Minister-President. The question how
far a call to order can be justified when direc
ted to the Ministry, I will not here dismiss ;
but should it he broached again in this man
ner,l shall take occasion to make some re
man on this point. Gentlenten, the threat
of making Prussia defenseless was uttered by
the same Deputy Yon Unruh, whose mime, is
connection with the refusal of taxes in the
year 1848--[lndescribable confusion is erel7
part of the House, the rest of the Minister's
sentence being lost.]
Tho interruption having lasted several
minutes, the Vice-President at length rose and
said : I must observe to the Minister-Presi
dent that his last expression is totally irrele
vant to the question before the House.
The. Minister President: I cannot omitted°
to the President of the House any right to
disciplinary interruption of me when I am
speaking. I have not the honor to belong to
this assembly. I have had no voice in making
the standing orders; nor in the election of the
President. The disciplinary powers of , the
President find their limit at these barriers.
[pointing to the palisading before the Minis
ters' desk.] . As my superior I have only' his
Majesty the Xing. Ido not rise to speak by
virtue of the standing orders, but by virtue of
the authority given me by his Majesty the
King. You have not the right to interrupt
The Vice President: I have not refused the
Minister permission to go on speaking, Ater,
constitutionally, could Ido so. But according
to the standing orders of the House, the Pre
sident for Ma time being exercises his discipli
nary powers as far as the four walls of this
House reach—[loud applause]—and these
powers I shall exercise.
The Minister President: I must characterize
this view as one which is not shared by the
Ministry of the State. So, as I have said,
Deputy Von Unruh, whose name, in the year
ISIS, with the well known resolution for the
refusal of taxes [loud and long continual, up
roar, shouts of indignation from e Tag quarter
of the House; the Deputiti,
spring from their
seats; some rush to ;no seat of the };resident}
thepublic", the galleries join in the ShOute
=fusion ; calls of " Don't let yourielved
be provoked ;" " Let the President put his hat
on;" "Adjourn! adjourn !" &o.]
After silence had at length been in some
measure restored, the Vice President vain'
cannot allow the Minister Iresideht ad fie.
Vanity td Tidal', the tights of this Hobs&
Vie of Of OA Hoitsti lit thy bands, and it
is not competent for the PresisteUt of the State
Ministry to break through I'. I will prove t ua
to him by adjourning the sitting if he ventures
again to return to the resolution about refu
sing the taxes, which has nothing Whatever to
do with the present question. [Shouts of
"Bravo ;" the disturbance still continues; the
House still prevents the Minister front being
heard ; the President rings the large bell with
great energy; after about ten initiates, quiet
is to some extent restored.]
Thu Minister-President ; I cannot prevent
the President from adjourng the House. Hav
ing twice touched on the subject of refusing
the taxes I hold it superfluous to return 'to it
again. I therefore proceed. [Renewed • dis
turbance, cries of " adjourn !" " Prctlldolol
bell l'l] The Minister, after the restoration of
silence, then centinued.
Deputy- Tiresten made a severe attack on the
Minister-President, and said that it was a la
mentable thing to have to confeCe that the at
tache which were made abroad on the govern
ment.were well grounded. j" Very true.") But
