The touching pathos, burning pa
triotism, brilliancy of delineation, and
gems of historic beauty, whiCh flash
in dazzling splendor• in the foregoing
extract, point. clearly to the profound
political- strategy of the Spirit, by
which it means to re-elect Curtin by
professing not to' do it. Next to
praising a man, the best way to make
him friends and votes is to flOod the
community with. bewildering defama- :
tion and falsehood ; and As telling the
truth is not exactly in the Spirit's line,
it chooses thcway in which it is most
proficient to promote Gbv. Curtin's
election, and exhansts:itself in an ef
fort to see - how.many falsehoods May
be‘ crowded in a few..lines.
Distasteful as is the Spirit's strategy
in seeking the .re-election of Gov.
Curtin, we must henceforth regard it,
an anxilary in the Union cause and
the successnf our worthy ExecutiVe.
Nor is it an anomaly in its position
Somebody must burn their : fingers
when chesnuts are 'to be pulled out
of the fire, and scavengers are just as
necessary to a "community as gentle:
men; and as the Spirit has chosen its
duty, we can.only look to -the good
it may accomplish and leave it and
its infinitesmal conscience' to arrange
as to . the means it employs. "Of
course it knows' that Gov: Curtin
never furnished " spoiled meat and,
"mouldy crackers to the brave vol
"unteers," for the reason that they
were in the U. S. -service, and were
• L,
supplied by U. StatesOffieers ; but as
it wasn't trying or -meaning to tell
the truth, it had to assert that he did
starve and poition the soldiers for the
benefit of contractors, of whose busi
ness he had neither control or knowl
edge. Of course it knows ,that the
"shoddy,""damaged blankets," which
were defeated in a tilt with the "gen
tle zephyrs of • summer," and the
" stioes with pasteboard soles, so far
as sup - plied by the State„ were all fur-.
nished in contracts advertised and let
to the lowest bidder, and 'Controled
and managed entirely • by Quarter
Master General Hale, who never voted
anything else than a Democratic ticket
in his life, and who was Surveyor of.
the Port undei.'President Pierce. It
is also well advised that a committee
of the Legislature, headed by that
stubborn Democratic Reformer, Mr.
Rex, of Montgomhy, after hearing
all the testimony as to the furnishing
of supplies by the State made a unani
mous report, under oath, l not only
acquitting the Governor otall wrong,
but commending his; zeal, fidelity and
integrity in •the strongest terms.
Still, as-the Spirit means to defame
Gov. Cartin _into a re-election, it is
consistent with itself and its . purpose
,m Shutting its eyes to the 'light of
truth,' and in drawing bewitching pic
tures of Oriental splendor, and liar- .
rowing up the publin.,soul by por
traying monstrous ivrorigs on the
part of remorseless•ofticials.''

Spirkaiding in the re-election of Gov.
•Cartiit; but we beg to suggest that
it tell the truth occasionally—say
once amonth or so, just for the nov
elty of the thing, or 'for - the sake of
reference. If it does not,, it may
want to tell the truth some time,—

ticle, but as a' matter of ' interest or
policy, atid_the thingeris that nobody
will believe it. Iri last week's edito

would have been wrong, but for the

The Union County ConVention did
a good day's work, in presenting a
most meritorious and acceptable tick
et to the . people for their suffrages.
If it cannot be elected, then must the
"Green. Spot" be faithlese to herself,
to•lxer conceded loyalty,: and to our
eon~mon country.. Of the five Dailies
preisented for the leading: offices, four
ha'e been in actual service in the
field and honorably discharged at the
expiration' of their tertns,—two of
whom are hopeless crippfeas froth
wounds received, in battle, and the
other - is a gentleman of such infirm
health as to, disqualify, him, for the
ordinitry business of life.
Maj: K. Shannon Tailor, the can
didate for Prothonotary, was connec
ted with the military berore the war
broke out; and he responded to the
first call for troops made by the gov
ernment when Sumter was bombard
ed. He went out as a private in the
2d Penna. Volunteers,` and was after
wards promoted to a' Lieutenancy,
He is a true, earnest,'l4-al man, and
has uniformly and \ zealously acted
aa t ,ainst the so-called-Democracy. He
was warmly supported forProthono
tary three' years ago, 'and was sus
tained in the late Convention. with a
degree = of fidelity and positiveness
that gave him success. He will call
to thf support of the ticket a large
class ofour Young, active men, and
will contribute much to :the decisive
'victory in store for it in• October next.
Messrs. T. Jefferson Nill, candidate
for -Assembly ; Henry Strickler, can
didate for Register and Recorder;
James G. Elder, candidate for Treas
urer, and John .Doebler, candidate
for Director of the Poor, all- served
creditably in the 126th Regiment:
Elder was the Colonel;' commanding,
and fell severely wounded in the
thigh at FredericksbUrg, • and has
since been unable to wal without his
crutches Strickler was a Sergeant,
and fell at the same sanguinary strug
gle with his loft arm So shattered
by a musket ball as to require ampu
tation above the elboW. Nill was Ist
Lieutenant in the Waynesboro coin:-
pany, and waa commissioned Quarter
master—a position hellled with em
credit to himself and accepta
bility to the'regiment. His superior
business qualities, great fidelity and
stern integrity, pointed him out by
general consent as the man for the
responsible position and he fully met
every reasonable eipectation; Doeb
ler was . Captain of Company A, 'from
this place, and fell at Fredericksburg,
while gallantly leading his men, with
his left arm terribly shattered by a
rifle ball; and he has not yet recov
ered the use of it. Of the fitness of
these men for the offices for which
they have been nominated ; there is
butane judgment: In point of char
acter and qualifications they come up
to the severest standard of honesty,
and competency; and their devotion
to their country's, 'cause, as evinced
by their herobith on the bloody field,
and by the honorable wounds they
won in-defence of our common Free
dom, will endear theth and their cause
