We have given up moat of our editorial space

It will be seen by reference to the proceed
ings of the Democratic County Convention
in our local column that Dr. C. Seiler and
John Raymond were elected Representative
delegates to the 17th of June State Convention,
and instructed to support Mester Clymer. The
Senatorial conferees, Messrs. Lauman, Wise
and Loomis, are also instructed to use their
influence to procure the election of a Senato
rial delegate favorable to the nomination of
Outrage at New Berlin.
We invite attention to a communication from
New Berlin, Union county, giving the particu
lars of a gross outrage perpetrated in a church
in that place, daring funeral service. We can
not say we are astonished, for churches in
many places having already been desecrated
by howling political and blood-invoking par
sons, it is no wonder that military men should
think it no harm to convert them into shooting
galleries and slaughter pens. If the facts are
as stated by our correspondent, Gebhart should
be held amenable to the civil law, or be sum
marily and severely punished.
A bill passed both houses of the last Legisla
ture by decided majorities, providing for the
payment of certain officers for recruiting volun
teers, up to the time they were mustered into
the United States service. This bill still re
mains in the hands of the Governor. It seems
to us that this delay is doing great injustice to
this meritorious class of claimants. To them
we are largely indebted for the mustering of
the gallant army now in the field, fighting the
battles of our country. Somer-of them ha7B
expended their own money two years ago in
this 'service; and after this tardy justice at the
hands of the Legislature, it seems hard that
they eiteuld be still further delayed by the
Executive. They are now looking eagerly for
the bill to become alaw, so that they may know
its provisions, and be informed as to what evi
dence is necessary to make out their respective
claims. We trust the Governor will relieve
their anxiety at once.
"Occasional," the Washington correspon
dent of the Press, is often unfair and 'always
mendacious. The National Intelligtncer, a few
days ago, remarked, in the course of a very
able but moderate article, that if an impressive
victory--one of substantial benefit to the coun
try—were not obtained by the army during
the present campaign, the public mind would
become so dissatisfied that the administration
must prepare for serious consequences. This
is the substance of what the Intelligence, said,
not the exact language. Occasional, in his
letter to the Pres., of the 20th, seizes upon this
expression, and gives it a construction which
we are sure no one would who did not deliber
ately design to pervert and misrepresent. He
says the plain meaning of it is "that, in the
event of defeat, the rebellion must be declared
victorious, and the usurpation of the traitors
acknowledged." But suppose it was so—why
should Occasional censure the Ingelligencer for
repeating in milder and more ambiguous phrase
what, Greeley utter3d, without censure, three
months ago, when he declared that if we did
not gain decided advantages inninety days, we
would be compelled to "accept peace on the
best attainable terms !" The ninety days are

and if Greeley is a truthful man he is for "pesoe

There are two falsehoods of prodigious di
mensions in the leading editorial of the Dea
con's paper of last evening, and several, only
one of -which we shall refer to, in the article
which follows it. Ist. The Lancaster Express,
about as rabid a radical Thad. Stevens-Abolition
sheet as we receive in exchange, the Deacon
classifies as a "neutral press." 2d. He declares
the programme of a Democratic peace to be

Confederate States, and the permanent disrup
tion of the 'Union the surrender to the
enemy of Maryland, Kentucky, Missouri, West
Virginia, and all other Southern territory which
we now hold "—" the abandonment to the ew
emy of - our National Capital"—" the giving up
of all the lower Mississippi to the rebels,. to
enable them always to dictate terms of inter
course to the West, " &c. These are broad,
palpable, unmitigated falsehoods. There is
not in the whole land a sane Democrat in favor
of peace on such terms. Vallandigham and
Wood, who are considered the prominent peace
party leaders west and east, have neither of
them ever preached peace on such coedit:mo—
on the contrary,theyhave both proclaimed union
as the very basis of the peace which they seek.

EDITORS PATRIOT AND UNION : Because you
have not spoken on the subject, I take it for
granted that you have not seen a pamphlet,
lately issued in Harrisburg, of which the fol

It is a pamphlet of thirty-two pages, and has
been flooded over the State by the Abolition
Senators, as an electioneering document. You,
who have seen the true proceedings, and read
the debate, will very readily imagine, that
they would be the lasi things which the Aboli
tionists would desire to use as a campaign

and observe such sins of omission and commis

The pamphlet professes to contain the " full
proceedings of the Senate," and yet of the two
apeeehes made by Hon. Meister Clymer in that
debate, not one tine appears. Abundant refer.

HOW POLITICAL RESOLUTIONS, ENDM.
SING OLD ABE AND DENOUNCING DEMO
CRATS, ARE GOT UP AND PUT THROUGH
IN THE ARMY.
The following letter is from a reliable source,
and entire confidence may be placed in what
the writer states:
169th BEG. PA. VOLUNTEERS,
GLOUCESTER POINT, VA., April 18,1868.
Editors Patriot and Union :
I have seen in the Abolition papers at the
North a great fuss made in regard to the reso
lutions, said to be passed by the different
regiments in the field from our State, denoun
cing the Democratic party as traitorous, giving
its members the epithet of "Copperheads"
and lauding "Father Abrabam" and his so
working Abolitionists to the skies. lam a
member of the 169th, and will tell you how
they managed t^ pass those resolutions in our
regiment. In the first place the acting Col.
(Lieutenant-Colonel Major,) and a majority of
,the Captains are Abolitionists. Well, they as.
semble together in secret conclave, draw up
the resolutions to suit themselves, get ail the
Abolitionists to sign them first, and then try
to scare the Democratic officers by threatening
to discharge them from the service without
pat, and call all those who refuse traitors, etc.
There are some, however, who, notwithstanding
all this, have refused to endorse them. What
will be their fate I know not.
Alas ! what will our poor, bleeding country
come to yet, if these poor, mean, craven-hearted
hounds are not soon stopped in their mad ca
reer? It cannot go on in this style much lon
ger, and I assure you if they let the privates
in onr regiment speak, Abolitionism will be
routed two to one. Taking this as an exam
ple of the manner these anti-Copperhead reso
lutions are passed in the army generally, we
need not be ashamed of the epithet applied to
us. Yours, respectfully.
PROVOST Menarthas.—At least fifteen of the
Pennsylvania, districts will have as marshals
soldiers wounded in the field,intelligent enough
to explain and defend the enrolment act, and
so discreet as to enforce it without giving of
fence. The policy of appointing wounded
soldiers of superior character, it is understood,
will govern the department .—N. Y. Times.
Why except the other ten districts ? Have
not enough Pennsylvania soldiers been wound
ed in the field, to choose twenty-five men from?
The same paper states that the Son. Wm. E.
Lehman has been appointed Provost Marshal
for the First district. He has never been
wounded in the field that we wot of. He was
elected as a Democrat to Congress, but voted
with the Abolitionists. The following, from
yesterday's Dispatch, will reveal the mystery
about these appointments :
"Oen. °Mein left here on Thursday, hav
ing made an amicable arrangement with the
friends of Gov. Curtin for a distribution of offi
ces under the Conscription act. The Gover
nor is to receive a South American mission and
one of Gen. Cameron's friends is to be nomi
nated as the Union candidate for Governor of
Pennsylvania, combining the friends of the two
gentlemen. Had not the friends of Gov. Cur
tin consented to this arrangement, Gen. Cam
eron's friends would have. accepted proposals
from ;the People's party, as they are deter
mined to prevent the election of John Conde."
Tun CASE OF JUDGE CONSTABLE.—Judge
Charles H. Constable, who was arrested in
Illinois by the military authorities for interfe
ring with the capture of deserters, was exam
ined before Hon. T. H. Treat, District Judge
of the Southern District of Illinois, on the
charge of encouraging soldiers to desert. A
dispatch to the Chicago limes says "a full ex
amination showed that the Sergeants, M'Far
lane and Long, had no authority to take deser
ters in Illinois, and that the Judge acted pro
perly in releasing the men arrested and in
holding the officers to bail. He was accord
was rendered simply upon the
evidence submitted ; the merits of Judge Con
stable's decision not being discussed."
Martin F. Conway, the Republican member
of Congress from Kansas, as is well known, at
the late session came out for peace on the ba
sis of separation between the North and South.
Thereupon he received resolutions, passed by
the Legislature of his State, strongly condem
natory of his coarse in the House. Mr. Con
way returned the resolutions to the Secretary
of State, with the expression of his "most
profound contempt," and closed his letter by
saying : "I shall ask the people, in their next
election, to say whether I am a traitor or not,
and in the meantime I spit upon the resolu
For the Patriot and i rnion.
BAD CONDUCT OF NEW ENGLAND
GENERALS DURING THE PRESENT
MR EDITOR 2—ln my last communication
stated that I would show that since the break
ing out of the rebellion most, if not all the
disgraceful defeats we have suffered can be
attributed to the incapacity or bad conduct of
New England Generals. I now proceed to re
deem my pledge.
The first disgraceful defeat to our arms was
at Great Bethel; brought about mainly by th i t
incapacity, or stupidity rather, of Gen. Pierci,
of Massachusetts. How far General Butler is
implicated remains for further discussion.
Here the most disgraceful sight was seen of
three full United States regiments ordered to
retreat before 600 or 700 badly armed Virginia
Militia, and one of our finest artillery offeers
sacrificed, when the simple order of a flanking
movement would have changed the whole face
of the affair; and, for want of the most ordi
nary capacity on the part of the commanding
officer on the field, with the troops on hand to
execute it, anxious and willing, it was not
done. These facts are too glaring to be dis
puted: Since then we have heard nothing of
this Massachusetts General commanding Uni
ted States troops, and well for the country it
The next was the disastrous defeat of Ball's
Bluff, where not only *ere so many of our
brave soldiers butchered, but the country had
to mourn the loss of a man of the very highest
value, the lamented Col. Baker ; and all this is
attributed to the bad conduct (if not worse) of
another New England General, Gen,' Stone.
Now if this charge be just or unjust, the Gov
ernment's action was to deprive him of his
command and confine him in a fortress ac
State prisoner. It is due to this officer to say,
if a trial should show injustice towards him by
the Government, it is one of the most flagrant
outrages ever committed on an officer ; • but we
speak of acts and results. Here is another
instance of bad conduct by a New England
Another disgraceful affair was the surprise
of the troops of another New England Gene
ral, Gen. Casey, on the Chielrahominy, at mid
day, and in an intrenched camp, imperiling
the whole Army of the Potomac. This officer
had the advantage of a good military education
at West Point, and we have never heard that
the education of that national institution ins
defective, except to those who are incompetent
to receive it. Here is another instance of bad
conduct in a New England General.
Another instance of bad conduct in a New
England General is that of Fitz John Porter
at the disastrous defeat of Gen. Pope's army
at the second battle of Bull Run. This New
England officer also had the benefit of a fine
military education at the national military
academy, and has since been cashiered and
dismissed the service. This is another in
stance of bad coutluct in a New England Gen
Another disgraceful affair was the conduct
of Gen. Phelps in Louisiana, who, on landing
in command; issued a proclamation to the peo
ple of Louisiana, turning the army of the Uni
ted States into a negro stealing expedition, and
subsequently committed an act of insubordina
tion, and either turned himself out or was
dismissed from command. This General Phelps
was another New England General.
And we see that another New England Gen
eral, Neal Dow, has been tried, and convicted
too, in the court at New Orleans, for appropri
ating, or, in plain English, stealing 40.4.54 worth
of sugar and silve" plate. Now, how this mis
erable New England charlatan, deceiver and
pretender, ever obtained high command in tho
army of the United States is a puzzle, and I
can only attribute it to the baleful and perni
cious influence of the faction, mentioned in my
former communication, of which he is quite a
Another disastrous.affair was the repulse of
our troops at James' Island, under another
New England General, Gen. Benham. Now,
whether this was occasioned by the cowardice
of a Massachusetts supporting regiment., who
broke and run under the same fire that had
already been passed through by their brave
comrades, (as the account stated,) or not, this
officer is not still in command, and we speak
of acts and facts, and how the acts of the
Government are applied to them, having no
wish to do any injustice to any one.
These are all that I can now think of where
defeat, coupled with disgrace to our arms, oc
curred, all of them; where New England Gen
erals were the commanders, leaders, or
actors, except one, i. e., the surrender of
the Maryland Heights; but under the court of
inquiry several officers were implicated, and
one a New Englander, and Gen. Miles having
fallen in the action, and could not explalu his
conduct, it is impossible to state the facts, as I
profess to do in this communication.
Other defeats we have had, but net disgrace
ful though disastrous-some tensioned by
overpowering numbers, or other causes, re
flecting no disgrace on the commanders re
spectively, or censure by the Government.
Here are seven New England Generals dis
posed of during this rebellion on the ground
of misconduct, and I think I have made out
my assertion fully.
In the next communication I will make out
my ono of incompetency in New England
Generals, and then for the application and the
DIOTE.—In Gen. Casey's case we think our
correspondent should have qualified his opin
ion. All the facts are not yet before the pub
lic, and he is still retained in service. In re
gard to Fitz John Porter, although the admin
istration have clearly enough expressed their
opinion by his dismissal from service, we were
not able to discover, in the course of the trial,
any impartial testimony prejudicial to his loy
alty as a citizen or ability as a commander.—
PUSHING FORWARD.—The West Pennsylvania
railroad is being pushed forward with much
vigor, This road starts oat from Blairsville,
where it connects with the Pennsylvania road,
and will run to Freeport, nearwhieh it will
connect with the Allegheny road. The inten
tion is to build a great oil depot at Freeport,
and ship the oil thence east, instead of taking
it to Pittsburg as now. The road will be about
fifty miles in length, and the ears, it is believed,
will be running on it by the middle of neat fall.
It is a most important work, tle more especi
ally if the intention to make Freeport a great
depot for the reception and shipment of oil
be 'carried out as now proposed. Indiana
HEM' OF TEE DAY.
A St. Louis telegram of April 20 says i Ad
ditional advioes from Fayetteville say the fight
there on Saturday lasted about four hours.—
The rebels were commanded by Gen. Cabell,
and retreated in disorder towards Ozark. Our
troops Were all Arkansas reoruite, under Col.
Harrison. They were poorly armed and equip
ped and without artillery.
As far as known at Suffolk, up to the 19th,
the killed and wounded in the various skir
mishes amounted to only seventy—thirteen
killed and fifty-seven wounded. The only
Pennsylvanian among them, in the lists we
have seen, is Zechariah Wilt, Co. A., 116th,
fracture of the ankle.
An Indianopolis dispatch, April 20, Says:
Forces dent to Danville last night report all
quiet to-day. Several arrests of armed men
have been made. It is reported that another
Union man was killed in Brown county yester
day by jayhawkers. Prosser has been removed
to his residence at Georgetown, where it is
said a force has been organized to resist his
arrest by the military authorities. A number
of leading Democrats from Brown and the ad
joining counties have gone there 'for the pur
pose of counselling submission to the lawful
authorities and the restoration of peace.
So far we have only received the Abolition
version of the disturbanoes in Indiana—the
telegraph being entirely under their control.
We have reason therefore to suspect that we
have not heard the whole truth, if any►.
A Washington dispatch, April 20, contains
the following :
Colonel Kimball, who was shot by General
Corcoran, is well known here, and his alleged
conduct is altogether irreconcileable with his
antecedents as a gentleman and a brave and
modest soldier. He learned his trade >as a
printer at Concord, New Hampshire, and when
connected with -a Deinocratic newspaper at
Woodstock, Vt,, he raised a company to serve
in Mexico. He surmounted the height of Che
pultepec, and tore down the flag that waved
over the fortress. In this war Col. Kimball
distinguished himself by leading the charge at

sews not unimportant.. The Polish insurrec
tion was still spreading. The London Globe,
referring to the seizure of the gunboat Alex
andria by the government, at Liverpool, on
suspicion of her being intended for the Con-
federate service, admits that circumstances
justified such a preliminary measure, but from
what is heard it doubts whether the matter can
be carried further. The vessel was in a very
unfinished state, and it is asserted that there
was nothing in her to indicate what her service
would be. •
WASHINGTON, April 21.—The Mloming offi
cial dispatch has been received at Headquarters
of the Army :
FORTRESS MONROE, April IA
Maj. Gen. riallech, General-in-Chief:
I deem it due to the forces at Suffolk briefly
to notice their gallant conduct during the
last six days. On Tuesday General Peck's
right was attacked, and the enemy's advance
was gallantly met by Col. Foster's light troops,
driving him back to the line of his pickets.
Anderson's (rebel) division engaged at the same
time, on the water front, with our gunboats
and batteries, and suffered materially. On
Wednesday a rebel battery of 2-pounder rifled
guns was effectually silenced, and the attack
on the Smith Briggs, an armed quartermaster's
boat, was repulsed. Repeated attempts have
been made on our lines, but have all been
foiled. The storming of the enemy's bat
tery near the west branch of the Nansemond,
by Gen. Getty, and the gunboats under Lieut.
Amsen of the navy, and capture of six guns
and two hundred prisoners, closes the opera
tions of six days against enemy's large
force very satisfactorily.

General Batiks was In the field at the head of
Grover's and Emory's divisions and Weitzel's
brigade. On the 11th Weitzel's forces crossed
Berwick Bay on pontoons, advancing to Pat
tersonvillve, five miles up the Teche. The
many retreated. Our forcers were reinforced
on Sunday by Emory's division. Grover's
forces embarked at Brashear city, and went
into a point called ludian Bend, above Frank
lin. The move, if successful, will bring the
enemy between two fires, and cannot fail of
good results. The rebel forces are estimated
at 8000. On Sunday afternoon sharp skir
mishing commenced between Weitzel's advance
and the enemy, the latter retreating towards
Franklin. It was reported at New Orleans on
the 13th that Weitzel was within six miles of
Franklin. It was also rumored that Gotten.'
Grant had appeared with a strong force upon
Red river. On the 9th instant Col. Daniels,
with 180 black troops, went to Pascagoula,
Mississippi, took possession of the place, and
hoisted the stars and stripes. He was subse
quently- attacked. by 300 ramie who, after a
severe fight, having twenty killed, a large
number Wounded, and three prisoners, re
treated. Colonel Daniels lost two killed and
five slightly wounded. The enemy brought
down large reinforcements from Mobile, and
Col. Daniels - returned to Ship Island.
A small 11. S. gunboat, the Barrataria, was
snagged in Amite river on the 7th. The guer
rillas surrounded her, when it was found im
possible to get her off, she was fired by her
officers and abandoned. •
The Union Association of New Orleans bad

the gun-boats Benton, Tuscumbia, Lafayette,
Pittsburgh, Carondelet, Gen. Price and three
transports ran the batteries of Vicksburg, all
safely except the transport Henry Clay, which
caught fire opposite the city and was burned.
The Benton was the only boat struck. She
had one man killed and two wounded.
WASHINGTON, April 21.—Official dispatches
received last night say that a portion of Ad

ber of soldiers from Gen. Grant's army, have
succeeded in running the batteriei at Vicks
burg, and are now in a condition to either help
Gen. Banks in an attack upon Port Hudson or
