BT SAKUEI, J. BOW.
CLEAKFIELD, PA., OCT. 28, 1863.
THE WAR NEWS.
Since our last issue the Rebel force under
Lee, which was threatening Gen.. Meade's
right wing, has retreated south of the Kapi-
dan, and the army of the Potomac now holds
undisputed possession of all the country east
of the Rappahannock, with no signs of a bat
tle at piesent.' The hasty retreat of too rebel
army, their officers say, was caused by a want
of provisions,and when Stuart passed through
Warrenton he did not stop to feed bis men,
though he admitted they had eaten nothing
lor '2i hours. It was also said by their offi
cers that having destroyed a portion of the Al
exandria and Orange Railroad,Lee would have
time to send troops to the assistance of Bragg
The rebel newspapers claim the -capture of
2,000 of our troops.a full battery, and a large
number of wagons during the campaign. In
formation from Washington states that the
damaga to the railroad will bo repaired and
in running order within ten days from the
retreat cf the rebel forces.
Advices from the Army of tho Potomac
.continue of tho most satisfatory character.
Cavalry reconnoissances are continued on our
jiart as far as the Rappahannock. The Orange
and Alexandria Railroad had already been
repaired one mile beyond Bristow Station,
.and forces are kept at work night and day.
The discipline and morale of tho army never
wero better, and the officers and men are
represented as having the greatest confidence
in Gen. Meade. , It is estimated that 1,500
men will cover all our losses in the late cam
paign, including killed, wounded, stragglers
and prisoners. This, it will be seen, is below
tho estimate of the Rebel loss niad by them
selves their loss being, acording to their
own accounts, 1,500 killed and wounded, and
a large number taken prisoners.
D'urins the past week a change of comman
ders has taken place in the army of tho Cum
berland. Gen. Rosecrans has been relieved
from his command and Gen. Thomas appoint
ed as his successor. Many rumors are afloat
as to the ciuso of this change, but we forbear
publishing them, as they are very contradic
tory. Wo will however remark, that, no
doubt, there were sufficient reasons for the
change, or it would not have been made by
the War Department. Time will set all things
Gen. Crook's official report of his pursuit,
defeat, aud rout of Wheeler's force, sent by
Braggs to cut offRosecran's communications,
is received. Gen. Crook had three fights with
the enemy, whipping him severely each time,
and finally scattering his lorco in every direc
tion, capturing four pieces of artillery, 1,000
stand of cavalry arms, and 340 prisoners, be
eido the wounded. Gen. Crook says he never
saw troops more demoralized, and thinks their
loss in this raid was not less than 2,000.
Joe Johnston's force, with tho exception of
one division,has been sent to reinforce Bragg.
There are not over 10,000 Rebel troops in Mis
sissippi. Richardson,Ross, Whitfield, Blythe,

A CALL FOB VOLUNTEERS !
In another column of to-days Journal will
be found the President's Proclamation calling
for 300,000 volunteers to fill up tho old regi
ments, tho recent draft having but partially
accomplished that result, owing, in tho main,
to the fact that so many able-bodied men paid
Heretofore niany persons wota opposed to
the system of drafting, and Urged volunteer
ing as the quickest and most patriotic way to
fill up the army ; whilst others contended
that there was nothing dishonorable or un
patriotic in a draft, and thought that the most
equitable way of raising an army. The Presi
dent, in his present proclamation, seems dis
posed to favor and accommodate both the par
ties alluded to and hence, he asks fer volun
teers first, and if the several States, or dis
tricts fail to lurnish their quota on or before
the 1st day of January, 13GI, then the defi
ciency is to be made up by a draft.
Tho Proclamation sets forth that "all vol
unteers received under this call, as well as
"all others not heretofore credited, shall bo
"duly credited on and deducted from the
"quotas established for the next draft" and
'that all volunteers thus called out and duly
"enlisted, shall receive advance pay, premi-
'umB and bounty as heretofore communica
ted to the Governors of States by the Way
"Department through the Provost Marshal
"General's office by special letters. "
The instructions hero refercd to,we believe,
are the orders issued some time since to the
Boards of Enrollment to institute a system of
enlistment throughout their respective dis
tricts, and embrace tho following provisions,
to wit : , '
For recruits who have served as soldiers not
less than nine months, and have been hon
orably discharged for any cause other than
physical disability, a bounty of $102 is to be
paid ; and to those who have not been in ser
vice as aforsaid, bounties of S302. These
bounties are payable, as follows :
At general rendezvous, bo (ore leaving the
same to join his regiment, the veteran recruit
will receive one month's pay, 13, premium,
S2, first instalment of bounty, $60 total $75
At the end of two months, another instal
ment of $50, in addition to regular pay.
At the end of six months, another instal
ment of fifty dollars; at the end of a year
another, and so on until tho whole amount is
paid. If honorably discharged at the end of
two years, the whole bounty will be paid.
For raw recruits tho same order ol'payment
will be observed, tho ratio of the instalments
being as much less than the above as $302 is
less than $402.
Persons who favor volunteering as tho most
efficient way of keeping up our armies now in
front of the enemies, sliouldgive this Procla
mation their hearty support, and use their in
fluence to promoto the desired object, as up
on tho success of enlistments depends
the question of another draft. Our armies
must be filled up or they will become too
weak to finish up tho great work of success
fully aud speedily crushing out tho rebellion.
The larger our armies are, and the more
prompt the response to the call of the Presi
dent, the sooner we may look for a permanent
peace. Every good citizen, pnd truo patriot,
should encourage the effort making to
strengthen our gallant men now in the field.
Volunteers have mainly fought this gigantic
rebellion from the commencement, aud now,
that it is growing weaker, let volunteers finish
it up, if possible.
FRAUDS AT TRIE ELECTIONS.
The copperhead leaders are clamoring vo
ciferously on the subject of frauds. Tho cop
perhead organs of every locality teem with
accounts of frauds alleged to have been perpe
trated by the loyal men of a distinct district.
In this manner these wretches manage, occa
sionly, to get up a sort of pubMc feeling on
the subject, until certain honest, though un
sophisticated, individuals are made to believe
that tho copperhead leaders are immaculately
pure, while all who oppose them are steeped
in political frauds.
On this subject of frauds at elections, there
is a history which is very damaging to tho cop
perhead or dough face Democratic leaders.
This history is contained in the criminal ro
cords of many of tho counties of the common
wealth, and those records clearly show that
the only villains ever convicted of frauds at
elections in this State, were those identified
wit h tho copperhead or dough-face Democratic
organization. There are now confined in the
Eastern Penitentiary, four of the most promi
nent Democratic ward jtoliticians of the city of
Philadelphia, who were convicted and imprisoned
for frauds proven to have been committed at an
election. In addition to these men thus im
prisoned, there are at least six others of like
political procli ities throughout the State, who
are uuder bonds to answer charges of frauds at
elections. These aro facts derived from tho
criminal records of the Commonwealth, and
yet the copperhead organs prate of frauds at the
elections. Out upon' such hypocricy ! Tel.
Gen. Scofield has issued an order for the
government ot the November election in Mis
souri, which makes provision for allowing on
ly duly qualified electors to vote, and holding
County Judges, Judges of election and Clerks
responsible for any violation of the order.
Persons having borne arms against tho Gov
ernment, or having given aid or comfort to
Rebels are prohibited from holding any office
connected with the election. In case of any
danger of interference with the election by
guerillas or others, military commanders are
directed to prevent such interference.
A secessionist from Hagerstown, Md., arri
ved at Richmond a few days ago, and presen
ted certain rebel coupons, a portion of $100,
000 for which he had sold his farm in Mary
laud, which were pronounced spurious at the
rebel treasury. Of course ho has no redness,
and barely escaped prosecutiou in Richmond
as a counterfeiter.
"Dkath to Copperheads, &c." Such was
tha inscription upon a flag, or banner, as wo
aro informed, flung from the hotel kept by
James XI. Galer, in Philipsburg, the morning
alter the news of Curtin s election reached mat
place. We are also informed that it disap
peared very suddenly after the fact became
known to the Democrats of the vicinity !
As all Democrats are called "Copperheads,
they may net re-lish the idea of patronizing a
hotel blazoned with such fearful warnings.
"Death to Democrats .'" Well, we suppose-
that is notice to Democrats that their custom
is not wanted, and that if they hve the spirit
of men, and would shun the "death" thus
threatened, they will bestow their patronago
upon Mr. Riddles, of the exchange see his
"Card" or upon Mr. Kepler, of the McGirk
house. Clearfield Republican. . : ,
"We learn from the Clearfield Republican
that a hotel keper named' Galor, in Philips
burg, flung to tho breeze on the morning1 af
ter the election, a flag with the motto of 'death
to Copperheads' inscribed upon it. "Copper
heads" traveling that way should be very care
ful to avoid this man as they would a pesti
lence, for it is said that his wiskey will kill at
forty yards, and that people who go there run
tho risk of starving to death, as he has scarce
ly ever anything to cat, and when he has, its
cleanliness is notabove suspicion. ' Gaylor's
is the worst hotel in Phillipsburg," as every
body who has ever stopped there can testily."
We have long known that the editors of tho
"Copperhead organ" iu this place-wero capa
ble of almost any degree of meanness, but the
attack upon a man's business, lor throwing
out a flag after the election, beariDg the in
scription, "Death to Copperheads," when the
principal transparency carried by that party
here, before the election, bore the cifttto
"Death to Abolitionists" on one side, and a
caricature uf dpt. Swoope and his company
upon the other, is meaner than we expect
ed ertn from them. Tha fact that Mr. Galer
flung to the breeze a flag, signifying that tho
"Copperheads" were politically dead, on the
day after the election, affords no excuse for
the low and contemptible attack upon hisi
and Lis business contained in the above ex
tracts. If tho "Copperhead", pipers intend
to proscribe every business man who does not
endorse their treasonable course, it is only
necessary for them to let it be fully under
stood, and it will be seen who will suffer most
iu the end. It will be found that it is "a
game two can play at," and if it is forced on
them, we apprehend there are few Union men
who will shrink from the consequences.
It is not true that "all Democrats aro called
Copperheads," and tho editors of the Repub
lican know it. There is just as much diller
ence between a true Democrat and a "Copper
head," as there is between any other loyal
man and a traitor. Such men as George M.
Dallas and Judge Strong are examples of tho
former the editors of tho "Clearfield Rnb
liean" are examples of the latter. -Neither
are all the men who voted the ticket supported
by the "Republican" called "Copperheads."
Very many honest and patriotic men.no doubt,
voted their ticket, believing that they were
discharging their duty but tiiey were men
who would scorn to be guilty of proscribing a
man in his business, for his political senti
ments. Anything more despicable than the tihove
extract from the Bcllefonte Watchman, it is
impossible to conceive. Not content with
venting their spleen upon Mr. Galer himself,
they attack his wife, ami meanly .iiiMimata
thut her "cleanliness is not above suspicion."
Coward and Copperhead-like, they would fix
their "slimy fangs" upon a woman, and at
tempt to poison tho public mind in regard to
her character by their foul and contemptible
inuendos. Liko tho Southern Guerrillas, in
whose cause they labor, they spare neither
age nor sex. Dead to every sense of shame,
and burning under the withering rebuke of
their overwhelming defeat by the loyal mas
ses, these "Copperhead" editors seek to wreak
their vengeance upon an inoffeusivo woman,
and attempt to destroy the business of a pri
vate citizen. But it is in perfect keeping
with all their conduct. Complicity with trea
son ever sinks the criminal deeper and deeper
in the mire of degradation and infamy.
A "Copperhead" is a low, vile, sneaking
thing, fit ohly for "treasons, stratagems and
spoils" a miserable wretch who is a traitor
to tho Government under which ha lives, but
too great a coward to enlist in the army of its
enemies. - Hence, to make a base and covert
attack upon the character of an unoffending
woman, in a manner that rivals the vilest
blackguard miscreant in the community, is
only iu consonance with their course and de
meanor. From such creatures nothing else is
to be expected. But their "fangs" having
been effectually extracted by the late election,
their sputtering slime can do no harm.
It is scarcely necessary to say, in regard to
tho "Conrad House," when all our travelling
community know, that thero are few better
country hotels kept anywhere. Mr. Galer is
a polite, accommodating landlord, and his
wife is a first rato housekeeper setting as
good a table as any man need want to sit down
to. We aro satisfied that Governor Curtin
and his lady, did not want for anything when
thoy stopped there oa Wednesday last. '
A shocking accident occurred in Wellsburg,
Erie county, on the I4th inst. W. H. Wright
was engaged in hauling a heavy saw-log over
an old bridge across the race near C. C. God
frey's saw mill, when one of the old rotton
stringers fell, and tho trucks were capsized
and pitched bottom upwards into the dry bed
of the mill race. Mr. W. was swept oil the
falling bridge and caught under tho log,which
struck him across tho hips and bowels, burst
ing the abdomen, forcing out the intestines
aud otherwise crushing and mutilating him.
His agonized shrieks soon brought assistance,
but human ail could not retain the vital spark
he died immediately. Ho loaves a wife who
has been an invalid for nearly two years, and.
one little girl to mourn his untimely death. '
Amoxo the candidates already named for
tho Speakership of tho House of Representa
tives is tha Hon. Elihu B. Wtishburne, of Il
linois, who, by longest continued service,
will be the senior member of that body.
ROOK FOR THE WAR DEMOCRACY..
Wo have that tenacious love for our princi-
pies and party, which nothing can turn asido
but just such danger as that which now invests
tho Uniou and threatens the Government. ; in
this hour of peril to the Government wo havo
been and still are willing to sacrifice party to
insure tho general good. Nor havo we been
nlone in the exercise of such a feeling of sacri
fice. Tho War Democracy of Pennsylvania
havo set their brethern of the Nation an exam
ple which will be emulated hereafter by all
true Democrats who are in earnest iu their ef
forts to rescue tho land from rebellion. Let
the War Democracy, then, "be invited to tho
highest honors of the triumph. Let room bo
msdo for them, wherever the country's defend
ers are received with loud acclaim. .Let them
bo welcomed to our hearths and blessed at our
altars. They have sealed their devotion to
their country in a sacrifice such as men never
before made. Tho glory of a party which had
almost become sacred in their eyes, was tram
pled iuto the dust to delend tho glory of the
country. The traditions of an organization
which was invested with tho most sacred mem
ories, and around which clustered their holiest
aflections,were repudiated to render imperish
able tho traditions of freedom to secure the
4erpetuaUon of the Union and the Govern
ment. These nun asked no honor or posiion,
while they were thus battling for the cause of
the country, except the position in which they
could fiercest fight the common danger.
Hundreds aud thousands of these men will
never confess tho good the- have done. They
havo their honor in the contemplation of tho
present great victory; their reward is the assu
rance that it was partly due to their eff irts,
that the country has been rescued from the
clutches of the traitors in the- north, whose
sole purpose of victory was to secure the suc
cess of the traitors in the south. Hence tee
must honor Ikes men ! Wo must honor them
by recognizing, acknowledging and repaying
their great services. They are patriots as no
ble as are those who sacrifice life and limb
on tho battle field. They have earned the
gratitude of tho nation ; and we trust that it
may never, hereafter, become our duty to op
pose aey f the generous or gallant War Dem
ocrats who did so nobly for the country on
the second Tuesday of October.
THE PRESIDENT'S PROCLAMATION.
The Pittsburg Gazette in refeting to the
recent Proclamation of the President for vol
unteers makes the following remarks :
"Tho President's call for 300,000 volunteers,
to fill up tho now greatly thinned ranks of the
iiitioaal armies, east arid west will not occasion
any surprise to those who have intelhge.in ly'
considered the present posture of a'Jairs. To
nil such, tho necessity of an early resort to
some means of sending more soldiers into the
field, has, probably lor many weeks past at
least since th inadequate results of the late
mat Uliiapl)oirii.J iUttitianiU.f ik.t msnci.
beoi very mauilest.
"It is important, nay, it is even essential to
the nation's interest to its safety and well
being, now and henceforth that no parsimony
in using irs resources shall co:npul our gener
ics to keep on tho defensive, when they should
Imvu men and war-mate t iul. at aU nvoessaiy
points, to secure the advantage of taking the
initiative to attack the enemy in front.
"Let no hope come to the rebels who have
np-v lost all hope of foreign assistance, ntnl
cen of a diversion of copperheads under t lie
Mad of Valla.ndiguaji and Woodwakw in the
Jorth let no hope come to" them fiom any
ltsitancy about reinforcing our armies. It
it, poor economy to be parsimonious in tls
matter. The truest economy will always pro
vile the amplest resources in such a war as
tiis. From tho very first, even until now,
He imperative dictate of the wisest economist
ciild only be Let an ovcrivhcliuine' array of
torjee, at all points where it is important to
niiet the rebels, be provided aud in readiness
tomeet them there! And though the work of
siiyugation now appears so far advanced, still
thisamo good counsellor would urge Hein-fo-jce!
reinforce! wherever you have an army
in the field, and thus take security against nil
pcisible unfriendly retrogressions of" fortitne

MAJOR GENERAL M'CLELLAN ON THE
ELEC1I0N IiN PENNSYLVANIA.
! Obaxge.'N. J., Oct! 12.
Hon. Charles J. Biddle, Philadelphia :
(Dear Sir: My attention has been called
to an article in tt.e Philadelphia Press, assert
ing that I had written to the managers of the
Democratic meeting at Allentown, disapprov
ing the objects of the meeting, and that if I
voted or spoke, it would be in favor of Gov
ernor Curtin. Iam informed that similar as
sertions have been mado throughout the State.
It has been my earnest endeavor heretofore to
avoid the participation in party politics, and I
had determined to adhere to this course; but
it is obvious that I cannot long maintain sileuce
under such misrepresentations. I, therefore,
request you to deny that I have written any
such letter, or entertained any such views, as
thoso attributed to mo in tho Philadelphia
Press. I desire to state clttrly and distinctly,
that, having some few days a;o had a full con
versation with Judge Wood ward, 7 find that our
vicut aree, and I regard his election as Gov
ernor of Pennsylvania calIod.for by the inter
ests of the nation. I undersold Judge Wood
ward to be in favor of tho prosecution of the
war with all tho means at the Command of the
loyal States until the military power of the re
bellion is destroyed. I undersUn i him to bo
of the opinion that, while tho war is waged
with all possible decision and energy, the pol
icy directing it should be in consonance with
the principles of humanity and -civilization,
working no injury to private rights and prop
erty not demanded by military necessity and
recognized by military law among civilized
nations. And, finally, I understand him to a
gree with me in the opinion that tho sole
great objects of this war are tho restoration of
the unity of the nation, tha preservation of
the Constitution, and the supremacy of tho
laws of the country. Believing that onropin
ions entirely agree upon these points,! would,
wero it in my power, give to Judge Wood
ward my voico and my vote.
I am, very respectfully yours,' v

The enlistment of colored troops in 5lary
land causes a-great amount of discontent a
luong tho slaveholders in that State ; so much,
indeed, that a depudation was sent to tho
Presidont to request a withdrawal of tho re
cruiting officers. . The President replied that
tho country needed soldiers, and if the re
cruiting officers did anything contrary to law
they would bo superseded, but the recruiting
must go on.
