M. Meylert, )
Under this modest, unpretending cap
tion, we ventured to express our opinion
K'tne days 8go as to the merits of certain
Generals holding important commands in
tt e grand army of the Union. This opinion
of oars, though accompanied by no harsh
Ttimarks criticising military blunders, or de
mands for Government interference, teems
( have exercised to a mot extraordinary
degree the little minds of some of our small
citizens occupying various public positions
in tha United S'ates and Municipal Govern
rients. To edify these greater humbugs
laan Gen. Pope himself, the honest and pa
fiotic Hessian Post Master of this city has
republished onr harmless little article in
two editions of the Telegraph, thas spread
lag broadcas, as it were, what these pre
vious hypocrites, paid patriots, and ignor
int officials are pleased to consider the
leedi of incipient treason. Heaven deliver
lis and all other trne men from the judge
ment cf such vile pimps, such bigoted par
tisans such stupid jackanapes as these men
in whose handi, and the hand of such as
these elsewhere, tha Secretary of War has
ronirrnued the personal freedom oi citizens
hj making them judges of what constitutes
Ueasoa and timer offences, with power to
lieize and imprison, without a hearing. God
help ca indeed, whea the military power
iissurses tuch, an attiJade as this in loyal
re the admiaistraiiorrf me c'm
" .wn-ci wcou iiupTCca, or m any
mannerimerfered with. It is pitiable ;to
.vitnee3 the abject obedience of ran to the
arbitrary exercise of unconstitutional power
directed against the privileges we have been
taught moat to esteem and hold fast to. Sol
'oiiii as we have a soul
to animate and a
brain to direct us, we ehatl not only not be
ol the number of theseimiserable, crinains
i waves, out shall tcourge them and their
masters as they deserve.
In regard to the opinion expressed of Gen
Pope, we have Mien no sufficient reason to
change it . Nor are we alone in entertain
ing it. The Philadelphia Bulletin, Repub
lican in every shade and line eays in the
issue ol Tuesday.in reference to Pope's r.p
erations: "We ( that is Gen. Pope was)
were surprised and outgeneralled by Jack
son." Yes, after the terrible blundering by
which the whole army train of more Than
one thousand wagon? was furprised, cap
tured, and fired by a few hundred daring
rebels al Catleti's Station, and all Genera"
Pope's private papers, including the plans
of the:campaign, were captured, exposing
to the rebel Generals everything they desir
ed, our eplendid General uot only permit
ted a Fecond surprise at the same station,
another at Dristow Siation, and still anotl er
at Manassas, but allowed Jackson to tl-ir.k
mm and throw a force in his rear. This!
immediately following the badly manned j
anatr at tUeJar Mountain, where Banks'
small division was permitted to 6ht ih
whole force of Jackson, unaided by other
ungaues trial were witlim an hour s march
of the field of battle, is not calculated to
iiive a plain matter-of-lact man a very exal
ted opinion of Pope's generalship. We are
not among thoe who Mindly worship pow
er or the agents of power. We lock upon
things as they occur, vi;h our eyes open,
expressing our judgment freely as becomes
the conductors of a public journal on which
ttK- peo.de rely for truth. If this be treason,
'he miserable gang of spies, rotten-hearied
and srhallow-r.ated.'patriots whos.- broad and

The Pat of Sept. 1st says :
, "The news of Sunday slightly d.i.-hed the
copes which had oeeu excited bv Pone's fa-
vorabie dispatch. of.Sunday. Oar Generals
were not only unable to pursue tha enemy
whom they had partially repulsed on Friday
but were themselves compelled to fall back
a mite or two to the strong' position of Cer
treville, where they remained at the last
"It must be confessed thatjthis retrogade
movement of Pope, though intended '.o se
cure a better position, is an unpleasant fea
ture in the history of events. We were led
to expect, from the tenor of his dispatch on
Sunda) , that he so crippled his adversary
as to have him ata decided disadvantage,
and to be .ab!e,5.wiih such reinforcements
as were known to be at hand, to drive him
to the wall. Ths more sanguine among us
indeed, talked of the probable capture or
j dispersion ot ;tbe entire rebel army, and
even bean'to entertai.rjhe fond thought
' that the rebeiHion was drawing to an end
H e were preparedto hear'this morning of
a glorious victory on Saturday, but were
doomed to disappointment. Instead of a
swift and successful edvance, we are only
told of an indecisive battle and a safe re
treat." As usual, too, on puch occasions we are
informed that the large rct'ifcrcements o!
the rebels were the cau-es of o ir midden
check But ho.v could that be ? Pope tel-
egraphed on Friday that he defeated "the
combined forces of the enemy," and yet in
the very critical moment, when he outfit to
have profited by the success, we learn of
large reinforcements to the same enemy. "
This is a reflec'.ionwhich is equally severe
upon Pope's genearalsbip and his veracity.'
And now leaving this great general, who
was always accustomed to look upon the
backs of his enemies and who never cave
any attention to his lines of retreat, in the
hands of his friends we dismiss the unpleas
ant subject trusting sincerely tha', with
the assistance of the really able generals atid
brave troops under his command, our hero
may soon blunder into a telling, crjshmg
victory that will prove a reality outside his

The quota for yonr county to fill the sev

the War Department is 5 532 mei.
You wiil apportion this quota to the dif
ferent townships, boroughs and wants in
yoar county, in accordance with the enroll
merit made by the Marshalis, of men sub
ject to military duty. It will not be made,
however, until the appeals are he'd and the
claims to exemption are decided, as it can
not be justly apportioned until the exact
nnmter of men actually subject to military
duty in each district is ascertained.
When the proper proportion of each sub
division of the connty is determined. in ac
cordance with the men actually subject to
military duty, you will ascertain from the
enrollment, the number of men each district
has now in the service, and credit it there
with on its quota. In this credit, men en
listed in the regular army, in the marine
service, blacksmiths, bridge builders, car

You will also observe carefully, to guard
against the same men being credited in tw o
districts In some instances, young mun
whose parent reside in one district, having
'een laboring or temporarily re-iding in an-
other, are there enlisted ; and they may be
credited on the enrollment in both. Whan
you detect any such case, give the credit to
the district where the person enlisted was
pursuing his lawlul calling or residing at
the time he enlisted, without regard to the
residence of his parents.
If any district in your county have fur
nished more than their quota, you will jts
certain the aggregate of Puch excess and
apportion it as a credit to the oilier districts
of the county in accordance, with the i n..
If any companies or squads of men in
your county have been mustered into t he

Mr. Editor . Dear Sir. Thinking a few
words from the one hundred and thirty sixth
may be of in eret lo jour numerous I pro
pose penning them The squad of m sn re
cruited in Columbia County arrived in liar
risburg, j'ist in the nick of time to le ac
cepted lor 9 months. Not being allowed
the privileges of recruiting it up to tho quo
ta for a Com p. my, we were "blied ei her to
abandon or consolidate with one ol lie two
last companies of the I i-t regiment o: nine
months men We con-o ilated wi;h a com
pany from Crawford county, a Lieut, beinjj
aliowed for our squad. Immediately after
forming our boys received their uniforms
ar.d marching order which caused an en
thusiastic manifestation as the boys were
anxious for battle. , We left Hartisburg
about 6 o'clock P. M. for Baltimore where
W3 arrived at 2 o'clock A. M. We marched
through the city immediately and fot ud re
freshments prepared by the soldiers relief
socieiy, which, the boys done justice too as
I seen quite a number filling their caiteens
hoi cjiFdtf and their Haversack) with
with some of the substantial in the shape
of Beef Cheese and Crackers.
We left Baltimore at 3 o'clock A. II. and
arrived in Washington at 10 o'clock P. M.
We immediately proceeded lo Fort Lincoln
a distance ol 3 miles from Washington on
the east branch of the Potomac. Our boys
immediately formed a Foraging patty and
in less than one hour Corn, Apples, Peach
es and sweet Potatoes, were distribited in
camp, in moltiiudious quantities.
This country is very undulating ind af
fords a number of very fine prospecU, Forts
greet the eye on every hill. It might be
called the Land of Forts.
Our boys seem to be e njoying themselves
in soldiers fashion ; they are anxion? to gel
a shot at the Rebels; Secessionists are plen
ty here, and J think in bne sense the boys
are glad of it as they are allowed to draft
from them.- Our company stand witch in
the rifle pits every night. They haie made
several parties of Rebels skedaddle, who
were venturing around our Pickets to test
oar strength. Oar boys are all the trite blue.

The Enrollment for This County.
We are indebted to Capt. Wm. Silvers,
Commissioner to superintend the drafting ir
this county, for the following statement.ai v
jng the number of persons enrolled, appor
tionmeni of the different townships, number i
of men in service and the quota yet to bi
furnished by each township. As it is a
matter of constant inquiry, our readers will
feel ar&teful for the information :
Fish ingc reek,
The quota for this county, under the dif
ferent calls from ihe government, is 1,447.
Of this number we have but 595 men in ser
vice. This makes it necessary to furuih
852 men by draft. The quota can be made
up by voluntary enlistments on or beford
the 20ib inst.
Sat Just What You Please. To Demo
crats we would say,say just what j on please
either about Lincoln or the war. Do not al
low yourselves to be knuckled down ; rather
go to prison than feurrender one inch cf
your independence. Obey the laws that
are Constitutions!, but refase to obey one
iota beyond the provisions of the Constitu
tion. If you do, you yourselves become
insurgents. So adopt and practice the good
old ways ; think what you will or can and
gay just what you please,defying the tyran
ny that now sweeps over the land. And
always bear in mind that Lincoln and his
Cabinet are the greatest Rebels in the landi
not one whit better than Jeff. Davis and his
devotees. Setinsgrovt Times.

resolutions for the consideration of the
J. C. Adams, George E. Fox, Daniel

the committee through their chairman re-
J3 j ported the following preamble and reaolu
j9 I tions, which were unanimously adopted as
33 i the seu;o of the convention, viz :
ll'ifcas. The proscriptive tendency of
the Iwepublican party of th'.s county, as it
is at present organized and governed,
renders it necessary in order to carry out
the objects and aim of the People's Cnioj
party of Pennsylvania, and co-operate
with that organization, to organize a Peo
ple's L'niou party in this County, upon the
basis of the address of the State Central
Committee of the People's Union party of
this State, and
Whereas, It has become apparent that
the Ilcpublicau organization ot' our county,
through its leaders has become an instru
ments in the hands of designing men for
I the accomplishment of mere selfish and
mercenary purposes, even to the squander
ing of the revenues of the Commonwealth
to the amount of nearly half a million of
dollars annually in the repeal of tho Ton
nage Tax, for the same selfish purposes,
lcaviug upn the State a debt of over
forty millions of dollars, to be a tax upon
the industry' of the people, for tho gradual
liquidations of which debt the Tonnage
tax was lirt imposed upon the Pennsylva
nia Central and other Kail Roads in the
State, as a guarantee against any loss
which might accrue to the State from the
depreciation in value of our State canals
from tho chartering of these rival lines of
railroads, and which tax should never
have been repealed, and
Whereas, We firmly believe that the
rights of the people have further been dis
regarded and trampled upon through our
late Senator for the benefit of men who
have no respect for common justice or
common honesty, so long as their own in
dividual interests are at stake, the ex
pressed will of the citizens along the line
0f our North Branch canal, through their
petitions, the only proper medium through
which representatives can bo reached by
their constituents having been disregarded I
and two successive bills for tho protection j
oi mcir rights having been smothered in
tho Senate, and
Whereas, We believe that the same bad
influences have for some time hovered about
the Republican convention of our County,
and in the convention of last Monday having
prevailed through tho combined influence
of these selfish men and of men who bar
gained with them for nominations, in pla
cing a majority of the people of our coun
ty in the false position of having endorsed
Mr. Landon and the repeal of the tonnage
Jhsolvert, That we wid hold the men
who were instrumental in forcincr the
twrong3 above mentioned
responsible for their action, and as we
yeneve mat a majority of the ticket nom
inated on Monday last is composed of men
who have been engaged in forcing the
fraud through that convention, we will hold
them especially responsible for that action,
and will take good care that they Shall not
have the power to furiher misrepresent us.
tcsorvvt, 1 hat in President Lincoln we
have a wise Statesman, a pure patriot and
an nonest man, and we believe that in the
prosecution of the war for the suppression
of the unholy southern rebellion he has
been governed bjr i;o other motive than a
desire to save the country, and preserve
the government with all its blessings in
