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 princiiples 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 her eafter, . the

for Increased eneatiragament in this great enterprise,
and appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to
lend us his aid in running our sapacription 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

this appeal to them for assistance with the fullest cond.
dence of success. •
The lame reasons which induce ns to raise the . price
of the Weekly, operate in regard' to the Daily the .:
price of which is also increased. The additional cost
each subscriber will be bet trifling; and, while we can
not persuade ourselves that the changa necessarily made
will result in any'iminution of our daily circulation,
yet, were we certain that such would be the cones

fer a ruinous loss. Under these circumstances we must
throw ourselves upon the generosity, or, rather, thek
justice of the pablie, and abide their verdict, whativer
it may be.
The period for which many of our subscriber's have
paid for their paper being on the eve of expiring, we
take the liberty of issuing this notice, reminding them
of the lame, in order that they may

We shall also take it as an especial favor if our present

WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 12,1863.
Editors Patriot and Union
The newspapers at. Harrisburg and Philadel
phia state, that the buildings at Camp Curtin
have all been condemned, as not "fit" for bar
racks or hospitals, "and that they will by torn
down, and new ones erected in their places."
The writer hereof hopes not. The whole sys
tem of rendezvous as at present in practice in
our army, is amazingly extravagant and waste
ful—ftwantly wrong—affording as much lati
tude' Air speculation- to its managers, as the
most offensive of "horse contracts." In and
about riarristArg the proof is afforded. Camp
Curtin, originallia lot of ground under lease
to an association for a term of years, used
generally as an agricultural exhibition ground,
in the confusion consequent upon the rebellion,
wag taken possession of by the State as a camp;
all its improvements des.royed; and up to this
period, as its stockholders know, has never
been paid a copper for its destruction, whilst
the leasehold rent is accumulated against them.
Following this Roily, Unger, Loban, Roberts,
Reel, Porter, Hamines heirs, the whole neigh
borhood went under, fences, crops, improve
ments ; Cameron, Colder, Haldeman, Gar
verich, Oyster, also ; (although we hear these
last land owners got paid by some process ;)
then Hamilton, Rutherford, the Poor House,
Murray 2 s estate, Haehnlen, Osterhont, all
laid as bare as Camp Curtin, and its surround
ings- are at this day modern ruins upon the east
side of the'river. To speak of the wanton de
vastation upcin the west bank of the Susque
hanna, is pet to be done with patience, but if
the airy liantoness of mischief had been let
loose 'from Hunter's Falls to the Yellow
Breeches, destruction could not have been more
complete. Fathers, eons, brothers, sisters,
widows, OrPhans, literally rendered penniless

torney who is out of talk—"here we rest" in
this locality. Now all the waste which every
observant citizen has witnessed—resident and
stranger-L r all the desolation caused by soldiers
,and fiery plosion exhibited by those whose
possessions . are thus wantonly destroyed, might
be avoided4y a verpaisnple, and most people
would assert at once, and economical remedy
on the part of those who administer to our
" military necessities." Let the government
rent one, or a dozen of our choicest or poorest
farms, from one hundred to one thousand acres,
use the buildings as_ barracks quarters, hospi
tals, (the fences, of "necessity," as the cheap
est material, for fire wood,) paying a handsome
snm for occupancy and waste. Terms would
be easily arranged under the usual civil course.
In the space thus taken, all the troops, sub
sistence, mustering, paying, purchasing, trans

as well as all the government employees, and
their clerks, officers, servants, &c.-, &c., in this

Saved from many millions of waste, and the

WM. DOCK, Jr., & Co
Dzsronsu.—lf the people of these parts of
the United States are not subjected to the rule
of a military despotism we must look for a new
definition of the term. Mr. Hazel B. Cashel,
of Maryland, a civilian, has been tried by a
regular court martial for. giving information to
the rebels. The court martial, after a full
trial of the case, has decided that no inten
tional guilt on the part of the accused has been
proved, and. inflicts no other punishment than
an admonition to be more careful in future in
his eonversation with rebels. This decision
does not please the Secretary of War. He or
dere that the prisoner, acquitted by a court
martial of his own appointment. shall be turned
over for a new trial by a civil court, under the
act of July 17, 1862, for the suppression of in
We shall not enter into an elaborate argu
ment to demonstrate our caption, that we are
living under a military despotism. The facts
need no corroboration of argument. Mr.
Cashel is tried by a court martial. This one
act is contrary to law. He is a civilian, and
not a soldier, and therefore not amenable to
military trial. Again, he was tried and ac
quitted. The power of the Secretary here
expired, and his authority could extend no
further than to mitigate the sentence of the
court had a severe one been passed. But Mr.
Stanton has proceeded one step further. An
old established rule of law is, that no man
shall be tried twice for the same offense. Our
military secretary, supreme in his power, de
cides that Mr. Cashel, acquitted by a military
court, shall be tried again by a civil court.—
Whetter he will appoint a jury from his mili
buy sycophants remains to be seen. We have
very little doubt that he will. To do so would
be no aggravatiin of his usurpations. No
wonder Mr. Stanton was dissatisfied with the
sentence of the military court, over which
General Hitchcock presided. and which, in the
ebullition of his passion, he has summarily
dissolved. We have said that we are not sur
prised that the Secretary was deeply offended
by the conduct of the court. He thought that
Mr. Cashel, being condemned, would be sub
jected to the pains and penalties, enacted for
the alleged offence, by the law of July Mb,
1862, which imposes a fine of ten thousand
dollars on the offender,:or imprisonment for
ten years, with forfeiture of all his slaves, if
be has any. Mr. Cashel is to have another
trial, with the chances, under the verdict of a
packed jury, of being obligated to increase the
number of .greenbacks in the pockets of his
Who will.deny that the, slightest shade of

We to-day conclude our extracts from Dr
Lewis' interesting and valuable treatise.
THE BEST BED
A sheet can be washed. A mattress cannot
be renovated in this way. Indeed, there is no
other way of cleansing a mattress but by
steaming it, or picking it to piers, and thus,
in fragments, exposing it 'to the direct rays of
the sun. As these processes are scarcely prac
ticable with any of the ordinary mattresses, I
am decidedly of the opinion that the good old
fashioned straw bed, which can, every three
months, be changed for fresh straw, and the
tick washed, is the sweetest and healthiest of
God has given our race few greater bene
factors than Priessnitz. He has cured the
woril of hydrophobia. Others had practised
cold batting, but in a most important sense,
he is the discoverer who has the genius to
successfully proclaim his knowledge to the
world. Since Priessnitz's advent, millions
have found in the cold bath protection against
those external influences, which are the cause
of so much disease. No tonic, not even qui
nine or iron, equals water. The skin sutlers
by seclusion from air and light. The heat,
moisture, and darkness, resulting from dress,
produce in the skin a pale and delicate condi
tion. In our climate, this morbid condition
can be removed by nothing 80 successfully as
by cold bathing and friction. The skin is the
organ which we present to the external world.
Whatever invigorates it, whatever tends to
make it tough and resistant, protects us from
a multitude of mischievous influences.
Perhaps no other dress topic has elicited so
much discussion. The greatest variety of
opinion is entertained, both with reference to
the material and the shape. As the health of
the feet has much to do with the health of the
lungs, I submit a suggestion or two. First, the
sole should be broad and strong, and the heels
broad and long. The width of the sole is most
important. 4othing can be more absurd and
cruel than th present narrow soles. The aver
age woman's foot, when placed, nude, upon
the floor, with the weight of the body resting
upon it, is en inch and a half broader than the
average sole of her shoe. How senseless, to
hobble about through life with the feet thus
equeesed.into half their natural width. How
the bones and ligaments are distorted! Most
people are ashamed of their naked feet. Ido
not wonder. With the toes flattened and pressed
into each other's sides; with the large toe
pushed. far to one side, the joint , at its .base
projecting in a most unseemly way, we have .a
painful departure from the beautiful foot of
the young child. The broad-toed boots and
shoes are physiological.
DRESS OF MALES
I have little to say upon male dress, beside
what has kept said , . under the heading—
" Best Material for Dress." Men make com
paratively few mistakes in this department.—
A few fops compress the chest With the waist
coat, but these foolish fellows are hardly worth
considering. A few men wear their pantaloons
without the suspenders, which is always inju—
rious ; the pressure produces absorption of
the muscles, tends to push the abdominal con
tents down into the lower part of the abdomi
nal cavity, and cheeks the;returP of the blood
through the surface veins. Many gentlemen
err in the dress of their feet ; bet this is dis
cussed under the heading—" Our Shoes." A
great many wear bats or caps, too close and
warm ; baldness is the consequence. We never
see a man who has lost a hair below where the
hat touches his head, if he has been bald fifty
years. If the hair is lost, and the top of the
head shining, nothing can be done to restore
the hair; but if the hate is falling out, the
best restorative means is a frequent bath in
cold water, with sharp friction, and the use of
a cool, ventilated hat. Wrapping the neck
and upper part of the cheat with furs, or a
comforter, is a bad habit, often resulting in a
cold, which attacks the part thus unduly heat
ed. And if colds are not caught in this way,
the neck must suffer more or less by the al
ternation from beat to cold I have traced
more than one severe cold, which has roused
into fatal action a tuberculous lung, to the use
of furs. An , immense number of them are
worn. Cravats should be slight and loose, not
beating the neck, nor interfering with the action
of the muscles, or the circulation of the blood.
In regard to the coat and pants,. I will simply
say, that, they should always be what the
present fashion is—loose, not interfering in the
least, with the arms or legs.
To YOUR POSTS DRAIOCRATS.—The only Itspe
for the country is in the election of Woodward
and Lowrie this fall, as it will pays the Dem

now ruling the country to its ruin. Hence
Democrats should go to unusual exertions to
achieve a victory this fall. Let every Demo

that is in his power_ It is but a little more
than two months until the election ; the prin

and bounteously, and now let him devote all
his spare time and attention to his country, to
himself and his Children's liberty and welfare.
There never was a time when so much de
pended upon the exertions of every individual
Democrat. The mere election of George W.
Woodward is not sufficient; he must have a
majority of tens of thousands ; a majority that

the next two months for the Democracy, in
urging and advocating its cause, will be time
well spent—may be worth more than years
hereafter, and no man should find excuses for
shirking duty when duty points the way. If
anything is to be done, no ir. Do not wait for
others to do it if you can perform the duty
yourself. Instruct the people whenever and
wherever you have the chance ;, see to your
organizations; hold meetings,deliver addresses,
form clubs, advocate your party and its prin.

House itself, it you have the opportunity. The
Constitution guarantees you the freedom of
speech, hence do not allow your tongues to be
tied up at the behest of any man or set of men.
Be true to your country and yourselves and
the only way now left to guard both is by un
flinching devotion to the Democratic party,
whose principles are now the only true expo

THE SEVENTT-SIZTII REGIMENT.
MORRIS ISLAND, July 23, 1863.
Editor jVew South.:—lt has been my pleasure
to peruso your enellent paper ever since MS
first edition ; • with all your patrons, :have
always hailed its appearance with delight, as
we have always known it to be a true exposi
tor of passing events,
and a truthful recdrd of
all transactions in the department. Yet I, as
a member of the 76th Pennsylvania volunteers,
cannot but protest against. the publication of
the account of the assault on Fort Wagner as
furnished you by one of your correspondents
on this island; which account proves one of
two things, viz : that the writer is very igno
rant of the truth, or shows a malicious desire
to vilify a regiment that did all that brave men
can do. I shall be as brief as possible, and
hope that you will publish an unvarnished
statement of facts as witnesed by one who was
there. As one who is proud of. holding a com
mission in the United States service,•and hav
ing a command in the 70th Pa., I request per
mission to vindicate my own honor In defend
ing my regiment.
I would not detract from the merits of the
battallion of the 7th Connecticut as shown in
its conduct on that morning. It did nobly,
and was led by a brave officer. •But, in report
ing the events of that engagement, your cor
respondent seems to have forgotten—if he was
there to learn—that what the 7th did on one
angle of the work, the 76th did equally well
on the adjoining side. As we received the
order to charge, the flash of the artillery was
seen over the knoll, at the foot of the glacis.
We knelt and permitted that charge to pass
over us, thereby saving many lives. the next
instant we started forward with a yell that
told there were few cowardly hearts in the
work. While ascending the glade •our ranks
were thinned at every dischaege of xnueketry
and artillery, yet we reached the moat, and
many crossed it, and there fell on the parapet
beyond. It was only after the command to
,retreat was given, that we retired, leaving on
the glade and in the moat one hundred and
thiity men and five officers. We lost compar
atively few in the retreat as we seperated for
the sake of safety, and all who fell wounded
after we left the glacis, were brought off the
field. Our casualities were one hundred and
ninety-eight out of three hundred and fifty en
gaged, and yet your correspondent, in a style
of deEcription that would do credit to a blood
and thunder tale of utoPian fields oicarnage,
gives the exclamation of an excited and woun
ded man a place in his description, as in that
one hasty expression, were summed up the
Whole cause of the failure. All honor tip the
, brave man wio led us, but, to•prove•that your
veracious correspondent was greatly mistaken,
permit me to say that Major Hicks wag woun
ded while the regiment was yet advancing. In
your correspondent's statement it is made to
appear that ..114jor Hicks preened forward
with a few brave fellows," and fell at a point
the regiment did not reach. In givtng a list
of the casualities he unjustly accredits to the
76th Pennsylvania and 9th Maine " many
stragglers who will set turn up." Of all those
missing, not one of the 76th has yet " turned
up." He looses sight of the fact that while
endeavoring to describe the fight in a style of
purile sentimentality, he has done very much
toward blasting the reputation of our regi
ment, and crushing the ambition of those of us
who may at any time be again taken through
the fiery ordeal. Our reputation as a regiment
lost, the individual honor periled, what is
there to stimulate vs to do our utmost in the
future ? We all know the result of the assault.
on the 18th. If a dozen regiments cannot take
a fort after it has been incessantly bombarded
for ten hours, is it not worse than injustice to
assert anything derogatory to two regiments
and a battallion who assault the same fort and
are repulsed, after one of the advance regi
ments and the battallion have lost over one
half their offices and men ? It must also be
borne in mind that when the 7th Connecticut,
9th Maine and 76th Pennsylvania assaulted
Fort Wagner, we were literally skeleton regi
ments, as through somebody's neglect, our
haversacks, which hal been left in the boats
by order, were not forwarded to us, and we
had fasted for thirty hours previous to the

THE Net:atm.—The wisest statesmanship
is that which directs events with a view to
well known and immutable truths; and not
that which contemplates a change of human
nature. Thus, in regard to the negro : The
immutable fact is, that there is a prejudice
against him. Legislation should conform to
this, fact; and any oivil policy which ignores
it, will run as upon breakers. It is not neces
sary to inquire whether the negro is of an in
ferior race or not; it is enough to know that
he is of another race: and any attempt to har
monize the two upon a basis of political and.
social equality will fail.
The practical point we have in view just
now, is, that it will be wretched policy on the
part of the government to attempt to dispose
of its surplus negroes by bringing them to the
Northern States. No matter what a few natu
ral fools like Wendell Phillips may say about
fraternity and amalgamation, it will be found
that the people will not "conquer their preju
dices," to oblige him or anybody else ; and the
experiment will be attended with the same
Scenes of violence that we have lately witnessed
in New York.
In all such commotions the poor and inno
cent negro is certain to get the worst of it.
Prejudice, numbers, skill and power are all
against him; and unjust and cruel as it is, he
is very likely to become the victim of popular
violence. Now, true philanthropy as well as
wise statesmanship, suggests that the races
should not intermix. The number of blacks
in the Northern States is so few at this time.
that their presence would not be noted as a
political or social element, if they were not
involved in an outside question relative to
their race elsewhere. No one entertains any
enmity towards them ; even the Holm; in New
York who cudgeled a negro on sight, owed him
no spite, but took that way to indicate to Me_
Maeda that they do not approve of the negro
policy of his administration. The true theory
for the government to pursue is to let the
slaves alone, and to encourage the colonization
of free negroes to some suitable and congenial
home. Perhaps if it would comply with the
first condition the last would not be necessary ;
but it is well known that the apparent ani
mosity of the whites towards the blacks among
us is only a reflection of popular indignation
against a policy which proposes to sacrifice the
white race for the benefit (t) of blacks that are
not among us.—ifanchester (N. H.) Democrat.
