Letters from the Army.
We have OU fto tWO very interesting Utters
from the Army of the Potodac, which we will
publish to-morrow. Every soldier of that
army now at home on furlough should read
these letters from fellow soldiers. One is from
the Fifth Reserve, the other from the 140th—
Both are genuine and from tried soldiers.
BIGHAM, of the Pittsburg Commercial, the
Curtin organ, exclaims:
" for true education and enlightenment.
Freemen cannot be formed without."
Very true. It is for lack of that "true edu
cation and enlightenment" that Bight= him
self is a bigot and a Blare.
Another Draft
It seems to be conceded by the Abolition
press that another draft, for $600,000 men, is .
contemplated by the administration. The N.
Y. Tribune intimates that the rumor is "prema
ture," but does not deny that it is well found
ed. This contemplated draft, if enforced, and
the men actually taken, will exhaust the entire
North of fighting inenattch we mean as would
pass examination by a surgeon. It will pro
bably be attempted soon after the termination
of the fall elections--say the latter part of
November. The able-bodied men of the coun
try may as well prepare themselves to march.
Arrested for Disloyalty.
Five persons were arrested in Baltimore on
Friday last, charged with disloyalty to the
Government. The evidence proved that the
parties went into a public house, called for
liquor, and drank the following toast : " Damn
the goose that groomed the quill that made the
pen that - wrote the Proclamation of Emancipa
tion." The only thing objectionable in the toast
as we look at it, aside from its profanity and
bad gram i d a,r, is the abuse of the wrong goose.
If the party would curse, they should have
cursed the geese that handled instead of the
one that grew the quill.
.12king aside, is it not dhigracefnl that Fed
eral officers should arrest citizens on serious
eharges for causes so- trivel ? Every day w e
read of just such arrests as the above ; and yet,
in lilts proclamation, published to-day, the
President enumerates, among other things for
which we ought to be thankful, " a large in
creaie Of 11/3111D'OX !" An " increase," we un
dertake to says which none can see except the
privileged plunderers of the nation, who, we
confess, do enjoy a very enlarged "freedom"
in their line.
The Signs Propitious.

more. The Democratic party, we know, is not
composed of material to be frightened by the
rattling of sheet-iron, and the bellowing of the
Aliolitioiiiitii is pea than that. Tlig
may calculate, as the Chinese liraves do, to win
the battle by noise, by the furious beating of
gongs, but like the . Chinese, they will find, in
the end, that something more than noise, more
than brag and bluster, is necessary to achieve
. .a victory over foes who are tie, cowards. In
the great cities—those duke of iniquity where
corruption, has full play andmoney is omnipo.
.tent—the "unquestioning" helots of Lincoln
and Curtin talk with great confidence, swag
ger and swear and bet their money on the
election, with all the recklessness of thieves
who know that there is more'where that came
from, and to be obtained as that was. There
—in such places—the great cities, where con
tractors, and jobbers, and money brokers, and
all kinds of Government spies, thieves and as
sassins "most do congregate"—these is where
the thunder is heard—there is where Aboli
tionism spreads itself, blows its trumpet, shouts
aloud its fended triumph—vociferates, howls
and storms.
But that is all—there, where the tempest is
raised and rages, there will it subside, without
uprooting a tree or quivering a single leaf or
blade of grass outside the brick and mortar
which mark its boundaries.
°aside the walls of these great hives of men
all is right and safe. The rural districts are
uncorrupted and incorruptible. There Democ
racy is strong, active, untiring and confident:
The voice that reaches us from the towns and
hamlets, from the hills and valleys, from the
abodes of innocence, of virtue and intelligence,
is a voice of encouragement—it comes from
the heart and it reaches the heart—it is a voice
of gladness and of cheer. Upon that we rely,
and feel that we shall not be disappoined.
The people of the country have scanned the
measures of Lincoln and Curtin, and they-con
demn them. They have suffered much already
—they know that, without a change, they will
suffer more. They feel that their liberties
have been greatly circumscribed, and are in
danger of being entirely subverted; they feel
the oppression of political peraecution and
taxation, and they are determined to throw it
off by defeating at the polls those who have
brought it upon them, and electing wise, expe
rienced, honest and safe men, who will, as
soon as possible, restore the old order of
Such is the popular feeling and the popular
determination throughout the State, and know
ing this, we feel that there is yet hope for the
country. Outside the cities and large towns
the strength of the Democratic party is in
creasing daily. Moderate, reflecting men of
the Republican party are leaving it by thou
sands and flocking to the flag of Demociraey
and Union. They see that there is no other
way of saving the nation from destruction, of
terminating this bloody war and its burdens—
no other way of preserving the Oonstitutiofl
ittid republican government—and they have
pat their shoulders to the wheel and will not
eaase until they have accomplished the object
they desire. The election will be carried by
votes, not noise. Our time to crow will be
when the result is announced—when it is ►ro
claimed that Woodward and Lowrie are elected.
That will be our day of rejoicing—and then
we will shout, not before.
A Base au4 Silly Charge.
"Judge Woodward, by assuming the rebel
debt, would more than double our present
Bo says the Pittsburg Commercial, Andrew
G. Ourtin's western organ ; so say all the Abo
lition papers in the State i taking their one
from the Commercial.
The sentence we have quoted is intended as
a direct oharge that Judge Woodward, if oleo ,
ted, will "assume the rebel debt."
A more silly charge could not be made. In
the fleet place, if we admit that Judge Woed=
ward could and would "assume the rebel debt,"
it is not true that it "would more than double
our present taxes," for, from all the official or
other information that the Commercial or we
have, the rebel debt is not by one thousand
millions as large as the Federal debt, and there
fore if it were assumed by Judge Woodward, or
by the Federal Government, or by the loyal
States, it would not "more than double" or
Oven double uour present taxes."
Giving them, then, the benefit of their charge
against Judge Woodward, and their conclusion
is false_
But the charge itself is false—and not only
false—it is silly. It shows plainly on their
part either a great lack of knowledge ? or a
recklessness of truth.
In the first place neither Judge Woodward
nor any of his friends have ever said a word
or written a line upon which took c el UV
Could for a moment be sustained.
In second place Judge Woodward could not
as Governor, even if he were inclined to do so,
"assume the rebel debt."
Neither the Constitution nor the laws of
Pennsylvania invest the Governor with such
authority. He cannot contract- or assume a
debt for the State—and certainly no one will
pretend to say that, under the Federal Consti
tution, he is clothed with power to assume a
debt for the nation.
The charge is, therefore, baseless—and if it
only reached intelligent men, might be passed
over as simply absurd. But it has Mai a
wide range ; it has circulated throughout the
State ; and as the intention of its originator
and propogators was, evidently, to deceive and
impose upon the comparatively ignorant, we
can Made it in no other light than as a base
and flagitious invention, such as honorable
men would scorn to use.
Neither Judge Woodward nor the party with
whom he is politically associated have any idea
of ever " assuming the rebel debt," nor have
they ever given the Abolition press or party
the slightest reason to charge them with such
a design.
'They could not do it if they would, nor
would they do it if they amid.
Thus we nail another Abolition calumny to
the counter.

The steam dig Leviathan was captured at
her wharf, at Southwest Pass, by a gang of
rebels. She was provided with_ a document
from Mr. Mallory, the rebel Secretary of the

to subsist themselves as beet they could, and
find their reward in plodder. Soon after the
Leviathen had started off with the gleeful
rebels, Lieut. Herrick, in the steamer Crescent,
started in pursuit of her, and being joined by
the gunboat De Soto, they succeeded in re
taking her, and capturing the pirates, after a
few hours chase.

The year that is drawihg towards its close has
been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields

are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to
forget the source from which they come, others
have been added, which are of such an extra
ordinary nature that they cannot fail to pene
trate and soften the heart which is habitually
insensible to the ever watchful providence of
Almighty God.

have been respected and obeyed, and harmony
has prevailed everywhere, except in the theatre
of our military conflict, while that theatre has
been greatly contracted by the advancing
armies and navies of the Union.
Needful diversions of wealth and of strength
from the fields of peaceful industry to the na
tional defence, have not arrested the plough,
the shuttle, or the ship. The as has enlarged
the borders of our settlements, and the mines
are full of iron and coal and of the precious
metals, and have yielded even more abundant

Population has steadily increased, notwith

God, who, while dealing with ns in anger for

that they should be solemnly, reverently, and
gratefully acknowledged, by the whole Ameri

I do, therefore, invite my fellow citizens in
every part of the United States, and also those
who are at sea, acid those who are sojouring in
foreign countries, to set apart and observe the
last Thursday of November next, as a day of
thanksgiving, and prayer and praise to out

such singular deliverances and blessings, they

Here is a genuine soldier's letter, written to
tir. Henry Shaffer, of Sinnemahoning. It
bears the writer's signature, which shows that
he is not ashamed or afraid to speak the truth.
This. Radice went into the service at the begin.
ning of the war a zealous Republican. He has
seen enough to convince him that his political
sentimentsewere wrong, and he has the hon
esty and nerve to renpunce them. Ohe such
letter is worth whole wagon loads of the
"manufactured to order" trash published in
the Abolition papers. He writes :
"Brother Shaffer, exhort every Democrat to
go to the polls this fall and do his duty WITH
A WILL; for on the exertions of the Democracy
depends the fate of our government. Al though
we do nbt elect a President this fall, yet we
elect a Governor, who may hold old Ann and
his Cabinet in check until we can get a Demo
cratic President re-instated. Then we may
hope that the Government will be resuscitated;
and the old Constitution will again be the su
preme law of the land. May God bless the
Democrats, and give them good success, and
may, Ahey yet succeed, in saving the govern
ment, is a sincere prayer of a soldier.
"SMITH Bnzlie.”
Noble words fitly spoken !
LET it be retnembertd that after two years'
trial the great result attained by our Abolition
rulers is wltneseed in the fact that they offer
handcuffs to white men and .shouldier straps to
negroes. Let freemen remember this fact when
tNly , are permitted to vote.—Exchave.
THERE are a good many objections to be
made to the re-election of Andy Curtin, but
the people seem to have made up their minds
that the greatest of all objections to him is
this—he ain't honest.
THE tafest “Government in the world, says
an exchange, is the one that rides from the
White House to the Soldier's Home, under "a
military escort I"
"GIVE trs A CHANGE."—This is the cry of
the people. Yes, give us a change of rutsrs.
God knows things can't go any worse. Any
change must be far the better.
