We have been compelled to raise the club subscription
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save our
selves from actual Jess. % Paper has risen, including
taxes; about twentj-five per cent., and is.etill rising;
and,wheis we tell our Democratic friends, candidly, that

stop the publication, we trust they will appreciate our
position, said, instead of withdrawing thei,r subserip
tions,-go to work with a will to increase our list in every
county in the State. We have endeavored. and shall

Iwo influence in prodneing the glorious revolfitiOti Ih
the politics of the State achieved at the late election;
and if fearlessness in the discharge of duty, fidelity to
r the principles of the party, and an anxiousdesire to pro
, mote its interests, with some experience and a moderate
degree of ability, can be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly PAraior AND MIMS win 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 loot
for increased encouragement in this great enterprise,
and appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to
lend us his aid in running our eupseription 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 Mistimes with the fullest confi
dence of CUOMO.
The same reasons which Wiles us to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Daily paper, the
price of which is also increased. The additional coat to
each subscriber will be but trilling; and, while we can
not persuade ourselves that the change necessarily made
will in any diminution of our daily circulation,
yet, were we certain that. such would be the conse

of the come, in order that they may

Correspondence of the Patriot and Union :
CHANDMISSUSO, July 15, 1863.

hav invaded Pennsylvania, the object of all
Gus iolicitwie has slipped through our fingers,

Written for the Patriot and Union
Beside the watobAre, wet and cold,
I laid' me downro Bleep—
The battle had been fierce and long,
And many left to weep .
A sire, a son, or brother dear,
All mangled On the plain,
Sleeping there their last long sleep
Beneath the cold chill rain.
I dreamed—alas! 'twig bat a draatit—
My home arose to view,
The meadows blight in summer's green,
The flowers all blooming too.
Methought I tqlt a mother's kiss
Upon my weary brow,
As ott she said how I was missed
Prom the , Lome of long ego.
What e'er our lot, where e'er we roam,
The heart will still look back
To the clear bright sky of childhood's home,
Though clouds !lOW dim our track.
Though smiles and tears are on the road .
Where we have lonely passtd,
Home memorise cling 'iLeptind the heart
And live while life may last.
I roamed the fields, I climbed the hill,
And wandered by the stream,
I heard the clacking of the mill—
But 0! 'twas all . a dream.
And she, with eyes of gentle blue,
/rang closely by my side,
And vowed again she would be true,
And called herself my bride.
But hark the morning bugle's notes
Come breaking on my dream,
And from my brow the chilling rain
Was pouring in a stream—
I thought of country—O, my heart,
Why sink desponding thus,
Tbough traitors rouad her alter throng,
To guard it is thy trust.
And list, a sound breaks on my ear, f
Along Potomac's aides,
Where dark Miaow-Ps rushing forth,
Where deep Mississippi glides;
The " Land of ?lowers" hears the cry,
And loud the' eannon'iroar,
Echoing sweep across the sea s
Alid Hy •long the shore.

We'll fight beneath its fold,
For Union, home and country stand,
As our Fathers did of old; •
We'll have the Union right or wrong? '

A. nation o'er it weeps:
me to say that the "rebellious rebels" are'en
titled to "due consideration" for not destroy
ing more private property than they did.
It would eo doubt be interesting to your
readers to know how the rebels behaved here.
The following, from the German Reformed Mes
senger, of this date, will doubtless be read with
interest: R. S. B.
On Tuesday, the 23d of July, Jenkins came,
and the following day the main rebel army
arrived, which continued to pour through town
during the greater part of five days. Ewell's
corps came first. His chief quartermaster and
others associated with him, at once made a
requisitiou on the town for different articles,
amounting in value to at least 5200,000.
Every nation has its national dish, as our
whilom fellow-countryman of the South well
know. England has its roast beef, Naples its
maccaroni, China its mice, pies and birth'
nests, and Pennsylvania its sour krout. So
reasoned they. "Krout" is , the cry ; five and
twenty barrels. True, it is a strong diet, but
these are men with tough stomachs. The ar
ticles demanded, Of CUM Mid not be fur
nished. 44 for the twenty-file barrels, these
were out of the question in the month of June,
or any other month. "Gentlemen, 'you are
just about having a taste of the war," the
quartermaster blandly remarked, and, per
haps, thought in his own , mind, " we want a
taste of your krout." "Not for the sake of
our army," he continued, "but for tis sake of
hiimanity, do not compel us to perforit
pleasant duty." The "unpleasant duty" came,
and would moat likely have been inflicted upon
us, ,even had the requisition , been complied
• Then began the sacking of stores. While
officers pretended to buy for Ceiffederate scrip,
awaitee of soldiers were permitted to WI their
. with anything , they could lay their
hands on. , Although most of the goods had
been removed, long trains of wagons bore the
fruits of this "gallant" Procedure:southward.
Each 'succeeding corps repeated the plunder.
Some of those who arrived last complained of
unjust treatment by their superiors; that they
'always had to bring up the rear, after others
had carried off the Spoils.' IndeedAhe gredd
of these men reminds one df the swarms. of :
famishing locusts which sometimes sweep over:
Egypt from the Lybian desert. The Crumbs
of sugar left in empty barrels were Seraped
out, and when there was nothing else left„
pockets were filled wtth patent medicines:and
dye stuffs. There were not a few officers,who
felt ashamed of their work ; not a fewwho
s h o wed the gentleman in the discharge of , their .
so-called "unpleasant duty." Chief Quarter
master Harman is disposed to be humaite as
we have reason to know. Whenever applied
to in behalf of widows, whose little all was in
vested in their shops, he would at once fur
nish them with a note of exemption, and that,
sometimes, at a pefsOUal iIIOOIIIIOaIOBCO. But
some that followed him took pleasure in mak
ing their "little brief authority" as offensive
and cruel as possible. Major TOD, a brother of

On Friday General Lee arrived, a medium

gray beard and moustache poorly

large cape, and a black felt hat, and rode a

square of the town: All eyes were of course

mental force of this rebellion. Whilst we ab

for his pains. There he sits unarmored.—

think of such a thing. Which way will be

Presently he turns his horse towards the, latter
place, and the army follows. He encamped a
few days near the town.
The drat part'of the 'army was the more re=

Then began thieving' in earnest. •Bats were

these . OUtregee may.have been committed by
stragglers, most of them, however, by men.
There is no doubt that this army contains
many of the best men of the South. The
general appearance of the privates, with the
exception of the adviinee corps, is very infe

Louielanian informed ue, that he has been taw
cullottes for days in succession, which, he re
marked, was not unusual among their men.—
They have no uniformity of dress, and no
epauletted officers. The latter look like men
who are in earnest. A forbidding exterior
cannot conceal the polish and easy grace of
their Southern training. Not a few of them
frankly acknowledge their miPgiVillgil With re
spect to this invasion, and said that some of
their prominent leaders had been opposed to
it. They insist that their cause must triumph,
for several reasons. The South is a unit; it
has the sympathy of England and France ; it
has the marks of the Divine favor, in its many
providential victories. They have made their
private soldiers believe this; Some of them
fight from a mistaken notion of prieoiple,
others to gratify a feeling of revenge for inju
ries inflicted upon their families or property,
others from desperation. " Yes," said one to
us, "rather than live under a government
which has reduced my aged parents to penury,
and myself to these filthy rags you see on me,
I will die in this valley." But amid this filthy
horde of Jubilant Jacobins, thirsting for the
blood of the Yankees, thete , are many down,
oast faces watohing their chance to desert.—
Many confess that they have been forced into
the army, and are compelled to fight for a
cause which they abhor in their inmost soul.
If as many deserters have passed' through
other places se through here, the rebel army
must have sustained a heavy loss in this way
since it crossed the Potomac.
They claim that a large proportion of their
army is coiiiposed of religions - men. Some of
their chaplains are among the most prominent
men in the Southern Church. ' , Among these ,
are Drs. Lacy 4 Pryot, and flop, Dr. Pryer,
