'..CLEARFIELD. FA., OCT. 21, 1863.
Persons abroad will doubtless wonder how
our opponents increased their majority one
hundred votes since the last tail election. It
will not be difficult to understand when they
have the following facts :
In the borough of New Washington there
was a Copperhead majority of 24. Ten days be
fore the election a number of Union men ap
plied to Eussell McMurray, the Assessor, and
weroregulary assessed, and paid their taxes to
the Collector. When they came to the polls to
vote,they were refused ,6ecate MMurray had
not returned the list to the Commissioners eight
days before the election ! Two Wood ward ites,
who were on the same list, assessed in the same
way, were premlttcd to vote. Let those who
doubt our statement read the following affi
davits :
Clearfield county ss.

vote, which was rejected by the officers hold
ing said Election ; and further saith not.
Sworn and subscribed before me the 13th day
of October 1863. M. L. Drum.
Wni. Feath, Justice of the Peace.
The astute gentlemen who refused these
votes, were Thomas Mehaffey (of know noth
ing renown,) Reuben Neiman and Joseph
Breth. Let their names pe remembered.
In Bloom township, where the whole board
was Copperhead, the majorily was caused by
their permitting a lot of log men to vote who
had no residence in the township, and had
not been there ten days before the election.
In Knox towship, six Union men, who bad
peen twice enrolled there, were refused per
mission to vote. Three deserters were per
mitted to vote, whom the board knew to bo
such, but a Union soldier was refused, be
cause he had no tax receipt, it having been
destroyed in the burning of his mother's
In Lawrence, at least two deserters were
slipped up the alley, and were permitted to
These are a few, of many instances that
might be given of unqualified fraud and wrong,
and will show how the election was conducted
by the unscrupulous leaders of the Copper
head faction. They resorted to any and ev
ery means to bolster np their rotton cause.
But all their efforts proved abortive. Their
candidate has been defeated by an over
whelming majority ,and their treasonable sen
timents rebuked by the loyal people of the
Commonwealth. The "Holy alliance" of
Copperheads, Rebels and Slavery, is doomed
to destruction. The hand-writing is upon the
wall. Before many months roll by, the work
will be complete.
We are credibly informed that so confident
were the leaders of the Clearfield copperhead
clique of the election of Woodward, that they
had made arrangements for a grand "barba-
cue," at which all the young copperheads
end the old copperheads, the big copperheads
and the little copperhoad, the lean copper
heads and the fat copperheads, in short, the
whole copperhead family, would assemble to
gorge themselves with "roast ox," and shout
for Woodward, Vallandigham & Co.
Alio ui was reaay, me copperneaa siomacns
ditto, Mike's knife was sharp, and the de
tails all settled but alas 1 Woodward dld'nt
come to time, and the expectant copperheads
will be compelled to go lean the remainder of
their days. They all look famished for want-!
of "ox." With elongated visages, down-cast
looks, and cadaverous stomachs, "tbey go
mourning about the streets." The barbacue"
has fizzled, the ox is non est, Woodward is do
funct, the Copperhoads sad, even tho "Cars"
have gone and left them, and, vorily, their
sorrows are muuipiiea.
lltM . J
Cbickamanga, as it has generally-been pro
nouncod sinco the river bucame historically
famous, is harsh and uncouth. Some writers
give it a softer intonation, and call it Chick
. The official results show that 4,018 votes
were polled for Governor in this county, a
larger vote than was ever polled before ; nnd
out of this vote Woodward had a majority of
952. We do not regard this result with any
feelings of disappointment, nor have we any
complaints to make about our friends in any
part of the county. It is well known that the
leaders who control the so-called Democratic
party of this county are of tho Vallandigham
and Woodward stripe of politicians ; and that
their organ, misnamed the "Clearfield Repub
lican," is one of the most rabid and abusive
sheets published outside of the Rebel States.
The natural tendency and apparent object of
that paper is to stir up an inten?e opposi
tion to the National Administration, and to
create a sympathy for treason and rebellion.
It is not to be denied that the efforts of tho
Clearfield copperhead leaders and their orgin
have had their due eflect. That portion of
the party that inbibed their views have grown
open and . defiant in their denunciations of
tbe government, and bold in their expressions
of sympathy for the rebellion. Many have
even armed themselves with pistols and guns
and threatened resistance to the laws by force,
and in one instance, it will be recollected, pro
ceded so far as to shoot an enrolling officer.
Tho same course has been, by the sauie party,
carried to the polls. Every means to either
persuade or compel meD to vote tbo copper
head ticket was tried; and where they had a
majority on the election board, copperhead
votes, that were clearly illegal, were received
without hesitation ; whilst on the other hand,
Union votes were rejected on the most trilling
excuses, and where the voter was lawfully en
titled to vote.
It will readily be perceived, by comparing
tho vote in 1860 with that cast on Tuesday,
that a large majority of those who have been
sent to the army from Clearfield were either
Republicans or War Democrats, who have
heretofore voted the Union ticket. In I860
we polled 1753 votes for Curtin. Now we have
only 1531; a difference of 224. Then the
Democratic vBte was 2040, now it is 2483; or
443 of an increase. The entire vote now poll
ed exceeds that of I860, just 219. It will thus
be seen that we have lost a largo portion of
our vote, and these are the men who repre
sent Clearfield county in the army.
Although we have some spots in our county
politically as dark as Egypt.yet there are oth-i-is
that will challenge comparison with any
in the State. Gnelich is our banner township;
givicg 105 far Curtin and 9 for Woodward
and this, too, after she had sent Go soldiers
to tho army. We have lost their votes
but tho country has gained brave defenders.
We could mention several persons in that
township who deserve notice for their patriot
ic efforts; but where all did. so well we will
not stop to mention names. It is an honor to
belong to such a township. We know of none
anywhere that has done better.
Beccaria, Burnside, Chest and Union have
rolled up good majorities for our ticket do
ing better than they did last year. The coun
try is much indebted to the loyal Union men
of these townships for their exertions and ser
vices. Our friends in Bradyjhave nobly stood up
and done their duty increasedho Union vote
aDd decreased the majority of the other side.
In other townships whore our opponents are
largely in the ascendency wo have generally
held our own or increased tho Union vote.
The Union men ol such townships who have
so faithfully served their country, amidst such
adverse influences, are especially entitled to
thanks. They are not forgotten, but if no
other reward should ever follow their efforts,
they will have tho approval of their own con
sciences that they cast their votes -on the side
of the Union and their country, and that those
votes, though unsuccessful in their own coun
ty, have helped as much as any others to swell
tho majority by which A. G. Curtin is elect
ed Governor of Pennsylvania.
We would then say to all the Union men of
Clearfield connty : Bo not discouraged.
Your votes and your exertions are not lost.
They are felt. Work on, and by your influ
ence, with the efforts of others of kindred pa
triotic impulses and purposes, this infamous
rebellion will surely be crushed, and our glo
rious Union preserved.
The Meeting at Ccrwexsville. In the
hnrry and excitement incident to an election,
wo last week forgot to notice the large and
enthusiastic meeting held at Curwensville on
Saturday the 10th of October. The officers
who presided were,
Wm. Irvin, Esq., President.
Vice Presidents- Geo. B.DaIe,John Welsh,
Alex. Murray, Elisha Fenton, Arthur Bell,
Capt. J. II. Ileasley, Titus II. Bailey, David
Dressier, Robert W. M'Naul, David Hoyt,
James Farewell, Geo. W. Carter, David
M'Cracken, David J. Cathcart, Andrew Davis.
Secretaries Ed. Goodwin, Lieut. L. Car
lisle, James Arthurs.
The President, Mr. Irvin, upon taking the
chair made a brief, but most excellent and tell
ing address.
Tho Hon. J. P. Hoyt, an old Democrat, was
then called npon and defined his position up
on National aflairs,and presented some strong
and pointed reasons for supporting the Nation
al and State Administrations.
II. B. Swoope, Esq., and Hon. J. Patton,
also made most excellent speeches.
- A prominent feature of the occasion was
Thirty-five young Iadies,dressed in white and
black and wearing red and blue scarfs and
white badges, representing tho several States
of tha American Union. This was truly a
most interesting feature and will long be re
membered by thoso who participated.
In short, this was one of the largest, mott
enthusiastic, most orderly and most interest
ing meetings ever held in Clearfield county.
Gen. John C. Breckinridge's division is
reported in the rebel papers to have lost, in
the late battles in Ceorgia, 1,300 out of 1,600
LIE NO." 35.
"Woodward to Remain "Speechless."
The National Administration Endorsed
about 18,000.
about 70,000.
about 12,000.
about 15,000.
Above we give the approximate result of
the elections held in tho several States nam
ed. The official returns have not yet reached
ns, and we postpone giving the details until
we cm do so correctly tho figures now pub
lished by tho city dailies being so meagre and
confused that they afford no satisfaction to
the reader.
The reported capture of Glasgow, Ky., last
week, consisted of a sudden dash upon the
place by 110 Rebels under Capt. Hughes, caus
ing a panic, in which they captured about 90
prisoners, arms and horses, with whom they
hastily left the place, simply because Major
Martin of the 37th Kentucky mounted infant
ry, and Lieut. Chenoworth opened a fire from
a Henry rifle, discharging about sixteen shots
at them. Major Martin placed himself at the
head of a party, pursued the flying Rebels, and
recaptured the prisoners and horses. The Reb
els left in such a hurry that they robbed none.
Gen. Burnside, advancing along the East
Tennessee and Virginia Railroad on Saturday,
overtook the Rebel force under Mndwall Jack
son and Gen. Williiims, at Blue Springs. Tho
enemy were in 3 strong position, and a sharp
engagement ensued, when at sundown they
were driven from the field, but darkness ren
dered immediate pursuit impossible. The
next morning the Rebels continued their re
treat on the Greenville Road with our force
in pursuit. Our loss was some GO killed and
Rebel invasions do not appear to succeed
well. That just undertaken by Shelby in Mis
souri has terminated most disastrously to his
forces. Gen. Brown succeeded in getting ht
tliem three times in a running fight, and final
ly cornered them, when a battle ensued which
listed five hours. The Rebels were complete
ly routed and scattered in all directions, with
the loss ol all their artillery, baggage, a large
number of small arms, and prisoners. Their
loss in killed aud wounded is also very large.
Our forces were in pursuit of tho scattered
Rebels at last accounts.
Our latest information from the Army of tho
Cumberland states that Vhee(er,vho attempted
to destroyRosecrans's communicBton,has been
chased back again across the Tennessee, glad
enough to give np his entsrprise and seek
safety within tho Ufebe! lines. The report Is
brought in by refugees that Bragg, owing to
the exhaustion of the country in which he has
been living, is falling back. The report is not
fully credited, though there is some reason lor
believing that the Rebels arc changing their
It now appears that the Rebels have a per
fect blockade in Charleston Harbor against
our iron-clads. They have reserved a passage
for their own crait, after the manner of a ca
nal with a safety lock against Union vessels.
In view of this fact, time will bo required for
the consummation of plans now being made
for overcoming these obstructions and reach
ing the other Rebel defenses.
Another Witness against Vallasdioham.
Surgeon J. R. Weist writes a letter to the
Cincinnati Commercial, detailing a conversation
respecting Vallandigham between himself
ana tne reDei uol. Webb, orthc IstAIabama
regiment, on the occasion of the capture of the
latter, after he had been rnortaly wounded-Col
Webb, having received Vallandigham on the
threshold of Dixie when be was exiled. A
niong other assertions which the rebel officer
relates as having been made by the copperhead
candidate for gubernatorial honors Is this:
That the South did not pursue the right policy;
that instead of allowing the North to invade
Kentucky and Tennessee, and making the
battlefields in said States tbey should transfer
the battlefields to Ohio and Indiana, and that
if they did so, a strong party would declare
in their favor.and the Administration would be
compelled to recognize the independence of
the South."
Our distinguished Senator thought, in nis
Curwensville speech on tho evening before the
election, that Betsy could'nt kill "that wbop
pen big bar" on Tuesday. But the bar's"
dead. Tho Copperheads could'nt save it, and
the gallant Senator's record on giving John
ston and Wright the use of tho nail, is con
demned and repudiated by Twenty Thousand
majority. Alas ! poor Billy, he's a gone sucker.
... illllll
Exlistmest of Slaves in Mabtlasd. A re
cent Washington letter says : Tho slavehold
ers of Maryland discover that there is an un
pleasant proviso in Mr. Lincoln's decision re
specting the enlistment of slaves in that State.
He assents to their demand, and no more slaves
are to be enlisted in Maryland without th econ-
sent of their masters.- But and here's tho
rub but, if the white slaveholders of Mary
land will not permit their slaves to enlist, they
must enlist themselves, or be drafted. Sol
diers, the government is determined to have,
from slave states as' well as free, and if tho
white people of Maryland prefer to fight rath
er than permit their slaves to do it for them,
the President will not object.
Chaplains Released. The following chap
lains of Pennsylvania regiments have been re
leased from Libby Prison, Richmond, and are
now in this State: George H. Hammer, 12th
Cavalry; D. C. Eberhart, 87th Regiment ; E,
O. Ambler, G7th Regiment. Theso men all
belonged to Milroy's command. They state
that there are at Belle Island over ten thous
and U. S. prisoners, the great majority of
whom are in a very destitute condition. A
large number of thetn are in their shirt sleeves,
and without hats and caps, and they arc com
pelled to lie in the open air. Many of them
havevthe chills, and if not speedily released
scores of deaths must ensue.
Draft Decisions. It lias been decided by
the Provost Marshal General that drafted men
who have paid S300 without being examined,
and are subsequently examined and foilnd en
titled to exemption, can have the commuta
tion money refunded. Those having substi
tutes in the service on March 3, 1SG3, and, be
ing drafted, have paid commutation, are enti
tled to have it reimbursed. And those who.
under" these circumstances, have furnished
substitutes, are entitled to have the amount
actually paid for such substitutes refunded, on
making a claim and producing the proof of
The national debt. A Washington dispatch
of Tuesday says: The National debf is far less
In amonut than the enemies of the Govern
ment hoped it would be on the 1st of October.
Tbey had prophesied that we would owe three
thousand millions of dollars before the end of
the second year of the war, Government en
ters upon the third year of the war. with adebt
of only twelve hundred and twerity-t wo-mil-Iions
seven hundred aud fifty thousand dollars.
The increase of this debt, hereafter, will be
moderate, the Government being abundantly
supplied with muskets, cannon and clothing.
The Conductor Seriously Injured !
The "train of Carrs" that wax "running
round loose" over Clearfield county before t lie
election, was suddenly thrown oil the track on
Tuesday last, and resulted in a general "smash
up" the Senatorial conductor being so seri
ously injured that he has been suffering" from
an affection of the ht;ad ever since. The pas
sengers look '-blue," and we fear it will bo a
long time before they recover from the effects
of Curtin's triumphant re-election.
The Union meu of Gulich township deserve
a flag, and we suggest to our friends that
they be presented with a splendid National
banner. There is no township in the State
deserves more credit than Gulich. She has
sent sixty-five men to the" army has five in
the Regular Army had sixteen men drafted,
only one of whom paid the commutation mon
ey, and she has given 105 votes for Curtin to
9 for Woodward 1 One of tho men a keeper
of a lager-beer saloon has left, since the elec
tion, in disgust. We have no doubt the re
maining eight will either come over to the
side of the Union, or follow hi9 example.
A Second St. Patrick. It is well known
that Governor Curtin is of Irish descent. He
must be lineally descended from St. Patrick,
judging from the "scatterment" ho has made
among tho "sarpients." Ho is death on Cop
perheads. A correspondent of the St. Louis Democrat
writes from Little Rock that two regiments of
loyal citizens have been raised in Arkansas
lor the federal anuy,and the third is now being
organized. Many recruits have also been ob
tained for regiments from other States. The
citizens, many of whom have been hid in the
woods and mountains a year and a half, throng
the streets daily by hundreds. They are wel
comed to the protection of the old flag.
It is officially announced for the informa
tion of the public that letters to any public
officer (excepting to members of the United
States Senate and House of Representatives,
the Secretary of the Senate and Clerk, of the
House of Representative), most be prepaid.
Letters must be prepaid which are directed to
the President of the United States, his Cabi
net officers and all others in public stations.
It is estimated ibat the wheat crop in tho
South, this year, will amount to nearly 60,000,
000 bushels. In 1860 over 31,000,000 bushels
were harvested. This great increased is ac
counted for by the fact that unusual attention
has been paid sinee the beginning of the war,
to the cultivation of the cereals. Cotton and
tobacco have been planted only to a limited
extent. .
Editoe Robbed. W. L.Davis, editor of the
Easton Daily Express, had a box containing
$300 and a number of valuable papers, stolen
from stable in bis oflice, a few days ago, A
boy employed in the office was arrested, and
confessed tbe crime, and implicated another
youth named Fray, as bis partner.
Gen. Meade Master of the Situation.
On the 14th inst., the enemy made two des
perate and unsuccessful attempts to whip that
army nnd destroy our trains, but in both cases
signally failed. Ju.-t at day-break, between
Cattett Station and Aboin, Stuart and A. P.
IT ill made a simultaneous attack upon Gen.
Gregg's cavalry and theTSecond Army Corps.
Almost the first intimation given of their pres
ence, was the opening of batteries upon the
Second Corps. Our troops were speedily
placed in position and the enemy repulsed
with considerable loss.
Late in the afternoon Hill made another
dash to cut of! the 2d corps. He first attack
ed the rear of the 5th cavalry, killing three of
the Pennsylvania Rcserves,and wounded 15
or 20 more. When the head of the 2d corps
had reached Kittle Run, near Bristol's Hill,
they made a terrible onslaught on both corps.
Tho 2d corps was on the eastern side of the
railroad track, and used the road embankment
at several points for breastworks with decided
advantage. The enemy charged at one time
up the embankment, when a portion of the 2d
charged in turn, captuiing 700 or 800 prison
ers, and one battery. Several charges were
made and each time the enemy forced back
with gre.-.t slaughter, leaving their killed and
A rapid artillery fire was kept up on both
sides until long after dark, when the enemy
gave up and retired. A full list of the killed
and wounded has not been obtained, but it is
not large. Capt. Ball, of the 3d Minnesota,
was wounded in three places, and under the
most aggravating cirenmstances. When the
enemy charged up the railroad, findiog them
selves in a very dangerous place, they waved
their h:.nds in token of surrender. At this in
stant Capt. Ball sprang npon the embankment,
and a volley was fired at him, three shots taK
ing eflect. The Minnesotians returned the
fire, and many rebels suffered death i i retali-.
ation for this act of treachery.
Our trains are all s lie. Some artillery prac
tice was going on this morning near the Rap
pahannock Station. but without much damage.
The 1st Maine cavalry, Col. Smith, which was
cut off on Monday night near Jeflerson.across
the Rappahannock, reached Bristou's station
Wednesday night. The regiment escaped
with the loss of a squad of men sent to com
municate with General Gregjf, about twenty in
all. .Our army behaved handsomely.
The rebel army under Lee is certainly all
across the Rappahannock and massed at Bris
too on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad,
and extending to a short distance north of the
old Bull Run battle ground. In this position,
they made a desperate attempt under cover of
darkness to accomplish what they have failed
to do all the way Horn the Rupidau, that of
turning Gen. Meade's right flank.
Tho lighting was mostly by artillerv and tho
Second Corps, under General Warren gallant
ly resisting tho enemy and driving him from
the field, capturing a rebel battery and sever
al hundred prisoneis. The loss, however, on
our side, is greater than was at first anticipa
ted. It must not be supposed that Meade has
retreated in front of Lee's army. The retro
grade movement has been on parallel lines, to
prevent Lee by rapid inarching from turning
Meade's right flank, and intercepting his rear.
Now that the situation is such that tbe rebel
army failed, to accomplish this, they show no
disposition to give battle on our immediate
front. They have probably presumed the
weakness of our aimy by sending reinforce
ments elsewhere, but they will" ascertain the
full fact if they dare to give battle. An en
gagement on the old Bull Run battle ground
wa3 thought to be imminent, but the enemy
has only kept up skirmishing. Gen. Meade
is master of the situation, notwithstanding
Lee attempted in the night to get between the
Army of the Potomac and the Capitol.
All of our supplies, stores and transporta
tion were safely brought away from Culpep
per, and tho raiload destroyed, so that it can
now be of no use to the enemy. It may be
stated now that arrangements for sending sup
plies to the rea" were completed several days
before the rebels advanced.
One of tho evening papers states that oc
currences in the field for the past few days
have created a very general impression among
military meu, that the rebels have called to
Lee's assistance almost their entire forco re
cently at Charleston , as well as their force re
cently in Xorth Carolina and Lower Virginia,
as he would scarcely venture to put the Rap
pahannock in his rear unless his army had
been greatly increased since Longstreet left
it for the W est with his two divisions.
General Meade had been" well advised of
Lee's purpose to attempt his current move
ment ou the right flank of our army. This is
evident in the celerity with which Meade has
moved his army so as to confront Lee in a
postion of his (Meadb's,) own choice, at the
uame time losing nothing of stores or amu
nition. "
Last night, tho 14th, from the manner in
which Lee drew bis attacking force, it was
evident , that he did not anticipate for it the
reception it received. As brilliant as was his
movement to dash between our army and
Washington the manner in which it was anti
cipated, prepared for and checkmated, was e
ven more brilliant.
