HON. GEO. H. PENDLETON,

Thousauds of men who do cot voto with prospect of au investigation of their oases
our nartv. will voto for Gen. MoUlcllan until after the EUction. Tho fact was
to save the Country. Tho army vote will

Considering military interference and
tho light vote, the majority! 1375 in this
County is a fine one. But it can bo in
creased to at least 1,500 for Gen. McClcl
lan, and will be if our friends aro prudent,
active nnd confident, as thoy should be,
tgir An set of 1780 authorizes Sheriffs
to receivo prisoners of the United States
"oomuiilted by virtuo of legal process;"
meaning in judicial proceedings by the
Courts. And an act of 1814 authorizes
them to receive "hostages and prisoners
of war" of tho United States. There is
no law requiring Sheriffs to receivo men
nrrostcd by Provost Marshals in draft
oases, and tho use of our jails for tuch
purpose is purely a voluntary act of the
Sheriff ; a favor extended to tho United
Slates ond not the performance of a legal
obligation. Considered m tho light of
this explanation, tho arrest of Shoriff
Furman was a most peculiar case of in
Holenco and outrage.
VST" Last week tho soldiers camo down
from Benton to Orangevillo whero a part
of them yet remain. At tho iustancc, n?
it is believed of Sanderson Woods, Sam
Aehcnbach & Co. Professor J. B. Pat
ton was ordered by the military to vaeato
his school houss on one day's notice foT
the use of tho troops. He had a flourish
ing delect school of seventy or eighty
young men and women, which wa? broken
up and scattered. Tho Academy of Prof.
H. D. Walker, at tho tame plaoo with a
smaller number of scholars and younger
pupils, was unmolested, Prolcssor Pat
ton is supposed to he a McClellan man,
whilo Walker is a Yankee Abolitionist of
tho Cist water. This unauthorized ap
propriation of private property and de
struction of a useful institution, whilo a
rival ono was spared, is one instructive
example of the exuting condition of our
country under Abraham the First.
S Soldiers were placed on the day
of election upon the roads of approach to
tho polls in Fishing-creek township, The
Bame thing was dono in Sugarloaf and
Benton. In the latter township ono of
tho elcctiou officers wa3 arrested In the
morning just before the polls opened, aud
several citizens belonging to that and
neighboring districts wore arrested the
night before ana kopt from voting.
They wcro released afterwards, Troops
were also sent to Boaver. Seo tho re
duced voto in all those districts as given
in another article. Citizens wcro intimi
dated and deterred from going to the
polls, for no wan can know that ho i?
safe from arrest. The pretence thai the
eoluiers were looking for deserters in Ben
ton, &c, is false. None wcro heard of
nor were there any in that section. The
arrests were of Citizens, and tho whole
proceeding an interference with the freo
dom of elections. How long will free
government exist in this country undei
Buch a system ? Its end will bo speedy
and inglorious unless new men are put in
power. Friend t You who read this I
ponder this subject and then act as a
Freeman and Patriot ; for your own se
curity and tho good of your country.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN ?

Wo will only odd a few romaika upon
tho caio of tho Shoriff, IIo was 'not ro-
quired by law to receivo and hold tho ar
rested men nfall. And in rooeiving thorn
