LINCASTSX, July 21,1863.
The abolition State Convention,
Today this body of political jockies Will
meet at Pittsburg, and in the course of time,
(say a day or two,) nominate some party back,
a renegade Democrat, like Knox, a blusterer
like Coved°, a radical, with some preteneions
to intellect and experience, like Ketcham, or,
failing is We, they may finally settle upon
Gov. Curtin, supposed to be the favorite of the
military element, as the most available candi
date under the circumstances.
If the tone of the _Abolition papers indiostoi
the real feeling in the ranks, the Convention
is likely to have an interesting time.
The Pittsburg Gazelle and Dispatch, aad per
haps other papers of that political stamp which
we do not receive, are very hitter in their
nonoiations of Gov. Curtin, while some of the
Eastern journals of the party respond to their
invectives with equal venom.
The Lancaster Inquirer, for instance, charac
terizes the opposition. to Governor Curtin as a
systematist effort "to crush him out of popular
favor," a "dirty plot," marked by "contempti
ble virulence and bitter malignance"—and
charges the Philadelphia Press and the Inquirer
with having "partially aided these unscrupu
lous scoundrels, by inuendoes, insinuations
and vague' charges of corruption. against the
Governer." Nor does the inquirer stop here.
It grows bailer as it proceeds, and defiantly
16 The people are enthusiast% for Governor
Curtin, and no eat of men, who have boon ,ln
strnmental in having these characteristically
cowardly assaults made dare foist through
trickery and rascality, a candidate on the
Union party of their own caliber."
After thus casting down the gauntlet to the
enemies of Governor Curtin, the inquirer calls
upon' the "ex-Secretary of War," (Gen. Cam
eron,) if be is "determined to make a fight
with Governor Curtin, in order to nominate
ex-Senator Ketcham," to do it fairly, openly
and honestly, and not pereist in "making
charges of corruption in office without a single
specification or circumstance to corroborate
"We warn these men," continues the In
quirer, "of the folly of their course. Every
county in Northern, Eastern , and South-east
ern Pennsylvania is for Gov. Curtin, first,
last and all the time.' The various county con
ventions that have assembled, have all instruct
ed their delegates to vote for him. His name
has'aconsed an unwonted enthusiasm, and from
town and city, from country and Tillage, the
cry is loud in his favor." * * * " Gov.
Curtin's friends are more anxious and deter
mined 'than ever upon his nomination."
If this is the feeling generally, the Conven
tion cannot fail to be a boioterono one, and we
may look for exposures, "When rogues fall
out," 4&o. The only capable man whe has been
named by the party for the Gubernatorial nom
ination, is Senator Penney ; but, being compe
tent and therefore not to be made a tool Of,
there 'is little chance for him. They want a
pliantman— and if Curtin is overalaughed, they
will find a weaker and worse man to head their
To ns it is a matter of no consequence on
whom the choice shall fall. We can easily beat
any man they bring forward, and by an over
whelming majority, such as Pennsylvania has
never yet given.
The Conscription Act.
There appears to be a difference of opinion
as to the true construction of the 13th section
of the Conscription act passed by the last Con
gress. Why there should be, will puzzle any
plan man who roods it—but, nevertheless,
On this subject we have received the follow
SELINSGROVE, PA., August 3, 1863
Editors Patriot and Union. There is no
doubt in my mind that if, according to Sec
tion 1* of the Conscription Rot e the procuring
of a substitute will exempt a man for three
years, the payment of POO will do the same.
But I would like to know the proper version
of the law. As published in the Age it reads :
"And thereupon such person so furnishing the
substitute, or paying the money shall be dis
charged from further liability under that draft."
As published in the PATRIOT AND UNION it
reads : "under the draft." Which is the pro•
per version, that or the t Further, "the draft,"
I understand, includes a period of two years;
but does "that draft" mean only ono pardon.
lar drawing, or does it mean the same as "the
draft," including a period of two years—the
limit of the law ? Alm-DitAvv.
The reading of the 13th section, as we find
it in a pamphlet printed by authority of Con
gress, is as follows:
"Sec- 18. That any person drafted and noti•
fled to appear as aforesaid may, on or before
the day fixed for his appearance, furnish an
acceptable substitute to take his place in the
draft; or he may pay to such person as the
Secretary of War may authorize to receive it,
such sum, not exneeding three hundred dol
lars, as the Secretary of War may determine,
for the procuration of such substitute, which
sum shall be fixed at a uniform rate.by a gen
eral order made at the time of ordering a draft
Rm. any State or MI iheretapon such
person so furnishing the substitute, or paying
the money, shall be discharged from further lia
bility under that draft," &c.
In our paper,- following the New York paper
from which we eopied it, it reads "under the
draft," instead of "under that draft." But in
either case the literal sense of the law is the
same. Any person may furnish a substitute
to take his place in the draft—or, he may pay
a determined sum, not , exceeding $3OO, "to
Mich person as the secretary of War may an•
thorize to receive it," * * "and there
upon such person so furnishing the substitute,
or paying the money, shall be discharged from fur
ther liability under that draft," arz.
What draft ? Why unquestionably " the
draft" before meationed in the section, which
is a draft " for three years, or during the war."
There is, no distinction, whatever, made in
the law betieen the man who furnishes a sub
stitute and the man who pays $BOO to the dn.
cer designated by the Secretary of War to re
ceive it. In the one instance the conscript
produces a substitute, in the other he hands
over the money to the Government, and with it
the Government procures the-substitute. In
deed, until recently, it was asserted by those
in the confidence of the Administration, that
the latter preferred the money to the substitute,
inasmuch ae icgave them the chance of pro
curing drilled soldiers, whose term of service
had expired, in place of mere civilians, such as
conscripts usually furnish. Be this as it may,
the law is plain : there is no distinction made
between the conscript who furnishes a embed
tote and the conscript who furnishes the money
—both are equally and alike exempt from fur
ther draft during the term for which the draft
is made—which is " for three years, or during
Our correspondent is wrong in his under
standing of the law, that it " includes a period
I of two years."
Section 11 says, (and this section we think
has confused our correepondent,) ‘• That all per
sons thus enrolled .shall be subject, for two
years after the first day of July succeeding the
enrollment, to be called into the military ser
vice of the United States, and to continue in
the service for three years or duritte the war,"
&c. That is, persons now enrolled, but not
drawn in this draft, " shall be subject for two
years," &0., "to be called into the military
service of the United Staten" for the full term
for which the conscripts are now called—that
is, "for three years, or during the war."
THE CONSTITETIONAI•ITY OF THE DRAFT TO BE
TESTED.—A case has been presented in the
Supreme Court for the purpose of securing a
&tiller' upon the conetitutionallty of the con
scription. The case is presented in the form
of a bill in equity, praying for a writ of in
junction to restrain the provost marshal from
proceeding further under the conscription law.
All the judges of the Supreme Court are out of
the city at the present time, hut in anticipation
of a case of thin kind, the judges stated before

the Chowan river at Wanton, N. C , and pro
ceeded to Jackson, 12 miles from Weldon, near

Our advance made a splendid charge on the
rebel advance and drove them back, capturing
70 prisoners. Our loss was 2 killed and 3
wounded. We captured 60 bales of cotton and
100 horses. It has rained incessantly since
the expedition started, rendering the roads

great hardships. Had the weather been fair,
much more would have been aecomplished.
The return of Col. Spear and his command

TIM EXEPEDITION AGAINOT LITTLIS CROW.
We learn from the expedition against Little
Crow that so far from dispersing his threes he
had burned the prairies and concentrated them
near Denis Lake, not far from the British line.
The United States forces were dragging their
weary length along the line of the Missouri
river,but Little Crow's incendiarism would stop
their further progress.
Judge Wright, of Indiana, who has been out
in that region as agent of the Government lo
cating the Indians, Camanehes, Arrapahoes,
Apaches, &c., estimates their number at from
ten to twelve thousand, giving from two to
three thousand warriors. These Indians had
been visited by the Sioux, - who had urged them
to commence hostilities against the whites by
atuteking the wagon treitte en the Oanta Fe
road along the Arkansas river, and eammitting
other. depredationg. Tans far peace bad been
preserved, and it was confidently hoped still
would. A plan is now in consideration of Gov
ernment which will have a decided tendency
to stop any further warlike movements on the
part of these Indians.
