After having my horse ritrett for, 1, - accompanied by a gentleman of 'the town. walked to the further end of town, where we remained some tune, and returned to the hotel. I aapposed at that time the mooting was alinost aver. I stepped into the parlor of the hotel and fonnd ;vim an agreeable company of ladies and gentle - _mien, with whom I, was enjoying myself, until a gen tleman came-in and told tau there was a difficulty hetwe'en some of my men and the citizens, wbteh was the first intimation I had of any Soldiers h4ng Zln the town. I I-mmediately started to the dear to -enforce my authority as an" officer with the soldiers. My reception when.arriving at the door was 7 -'lHe Is a traitor." and was struck by two or three persons, At - the late time I ordered every soldier to leave the town, and then asked for the person or perions who knack me. No one appearing willing to-Sa.v -Oho it, was. I then found every thing quiet, when 1 ritOunted•my horse and rode out of tarn. - NOw. those are facts that lam prepared to prove at any snoment; and I feel 'elpfident that you, as gentle ...men, will make the necessary correction.. It may be necessary to say, as I Itae since learned, the :dhaers for lirClellan were given at the suggestioti of sumo Indies who were in conversation with the sot diets at thetitne. I do not think their intention was to interrupter annoy any one—it was dine :hastily anewithout thought. " As for the term of Copperhead applied to mi. I 'oare'not, as my attachment to the army for sabre thaniyo years will give the lie to that. 1 I merely ask to explain,: as my - character as lan officer and a soldier has been brought before the public, and there is nothing a true soldier prizes; so high as his character its &soldier and a gentleman. Hoping you will give this a placoin your columns, lam gentlemen. Very respectfully, ' Your obedient servant, 1 e ' B. M, Monnew.li Major Ist Battalion fr2d cavalry-1. , Cavalry. I We give Maj.

If he' had been sober. and meant to do his duty. a would not onlyihave ordered the men of his thin-Jar:lnd out of town, ni he alleges he die i 1 but bis selfresp?ct its an officer, if not !Ils regard for tte pence of the town, would have 'made him enforce the order. He either did; not give such an "order ; or he permitted las atIIOLORIId to defy it insolently, for they dig t, ~,not leave town: On the contrary, they rea.7 mained until the Union meeting was broken , ttp, sill the time creating disorder by yelling You, "Jolly," "Woodward" and “MeClellail," 1 'raid committed numerous outrageous acts of -vtiolence upon citizens. The President! of !the Union meeting was cut in the neck with I.sknife, and narrowly escaped a mortal wound, and others were treated with like brutalifr. .kntr. when the 'Union meeting closed, the aoldiers called for Jolly and huzzaed 'For ' Woofiiirard and McClellan; and finally did wet.one of Maj, Morrow's command to make !"-, !,-, a regular copperhead speech. Where Was theisensitive Maj. Morrow, who `as he saws, "prizes nothing so high as his character,''' . when all these disgrac(:!ful scenes were trans piring?

Pennsylvania. In 1860 I bole some humble part in the canvass that brought ANDREW 'G. CURTIS into the Gu bernatorial Chair of .this- State, and. ABRA. n InicoLlt into the Presidency. It was my let to sand at the political helm and by :sleepless vigilance guard against the strategy and assaults of the foe.. When I now look out Upon the present, so fraught with mo mentous issues to the loyal cause, and then turn back to the struggle of three years ago: recall the giants who then confronted us in the names of Democracy, and ginned at their respective positions in the present-contest, it would seem that Democracy had faded from history,while some deformed, untimely birth had stolen its garments and - Claimed its in heritance. Then Cass thundered from the Premiership that Democrhey was the cause of the people and of the country." NoW, with thowisdom of patriarchal ,years to pen his judgment and - give 'Astro-to his ar dor Lor his country, he appeals to his old as sociates to save the government by the defeat of the so-called Dembentey. ;Dickinson and Dix, Cochrane and Sickles; and others of eminent fame, made the Empire State resound with, their eloquence in behalf of Democra- ; - cy. Now they speak with earnestness here.' tofore unknown, declaring that the life of.' the Republic dependkupon the defeat of the Democracy. -Stanton' was the wheel-horse' of the Douglas Democracy in Western Penn. , ' sylVenia and Ohio, and resisted the election! of - 14ineoln and Curtin with all his charac teristic energy and ability. Now he declares that Slavery must, die if our Nationality would be - saved. , Halleck was one of the ablest of Breckenridge's defenders on the' far-off Pacific's slopes; Meade, in that great' 'conflict, Cast his vote andpower against ile4 Republican. candidates ; Grant, Roseerans, Meagher, MeClernand,Legan.Barnside,Ros seau; Butler, and many others, who have won', distinction at the head of important commands, all supported one or the other of the Democratic candidates for the Pregdeney in *O, and all now turn, imploringly to the" people to sustain the government-and their war-worn veterans in the field, by voting the 'Union ticket.- Nor is this change confined to starred of who have met our coun try' foe's in dyadly battle., Scarcely a divis ion, brigade, regimental or line officer, or a private in the ranks, whatever may have been their political affinities when they en tered service, who do not now appeal to their friends at home' to give heart and hope and strength to the shattered ranks of our brave soldiers, by answering back to their crimson ed victories in the field with Union victories at the polls at home. I could name scores of, offit4rs from Pennsylvania, 'Who went out. Democrats, who now prefer to sacrifice the : Democratic party to the sacrifice of the Re-• public; _ for, the preservation of which they have perilled their lives. . Around nie. here in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania, I find strange mimes in the proceedings of Union meetings. Hon. N. B. Breivne was Buchanan's Post Master here in 186(4_ and contributed--as much of , means, ability and character to the Demo cratic cause as any other man in the - State. He now labors day and night to secure the ; re-election of Gov. Curtin. With hirii I' just now recall the - names of the eloquent Dougherty, Judge Knox, then Democratic; Attorney General ; of David Paul Brown,; one of the ablest stompers in the State; of Townsend Yardley,' then Democratic mem- , her of the Legislature; of J. C. Owen, then a Democratic leader, now cOmmanding. a brigade ,in the Army of- the Potomac; of Grund, .then the ablest of Democratic Wri tersipce editor of the Age; of Benjamin H. Brewster, the leading Democratic lawyer; of Dr. Gehrard, and scores :of . others I do. not inow remember, all of whore deserted the Derhocratic party because' they regard it- as faithless to the cause of the government in thiS trying crisis; ,It is to these Men, and to the thousands who 'arc rallying with them] that we shall be indebted for the overwhelm r ind Union triumph in Philadelphia on- the second Tuesday of October. Elsewhere in the State the same evidences are apparent to a greater or less degree, of the: disintegration of the old Democratic party. In the North such men as General Lilly, Hon: M. M,, Dimmick, Hon. Jere. Shindel, Judge Cool, and others, who have been consistent and earnest Dethocrats, have taken a bold stand in the support of:Curtin. These men do so in the face.of the dominant party—they sacrifice all hopes of political preferment. thereby; but they regard - the preservation of the government as their high= est and most sacred duty, and they feel that they cannot preserve it by a Democratic tri umph. In the interior and Southern coun ties I notice the names of such men .as Jas. L. Reynolds, brother of the late lamented General; Henry S.-Magraw, for three years Democratic State Treasurer, Major _Kepner, John H. Brandt, Thomas C. McDowell, for merly one of the editors of the Patriot and Union ; Foster and Blair, of Centre; the last named the Democratic candidate for Senator butt two years ago ; John Scott of Hunting. don,; Rowe andlfill of Franklin, and hund- red: of others—all of whom in 1860 were leading 'and,earnest opponents of Governor Curtin, and who now support him solely-be cause they feel that his election will cheer theloyal hearts of this continent, while his defeat will give new life and new power to the waning cause of treason.: In the west the venerable Judge Wilkins; brother-in-law of Hon. Geo. M. Dallas—who has been legislator,.t. S. Senator, .Cabinet officer, ioreiiti Minister, and again State Senator, holding all these positions as a Democrat—Will cast perhaps his last vote •for Aitdrew G. Curtin, 'and' his first vote against the Democratic party. He has been spared beyond the period allotted to mortals-, has justly Shared largely of the honors of his country ; and, now, , although his eye is dimmed , his step .feeble and his head whitened with the- frosts- of nearly four score winters, his intellect is unclouded and his heart beathtrue to -the Repub lic that' his grown up with him- 'to be 'the proudest, the noblest Nation of the . Nor is he alone in • his patriotic work. Such mon as Col: Roberts; Mr. Wood,' Dr. Gross, Judge Cunningham, Judge Shannon, John Findlay, and hosts of others, who three years ago were the leaders of the Democracy in the West; who shared most hogery of.its honors, and were Most potential in-its councils, are all now arrayed against the Democratic party; Ttnd with- one voice they declare it faithless to the country. I do not pretend to give one-tenth the names I have noticed in this canvass which in 1860 were to be found only in ‘ thc.. organizations against Gov. Curtin, for in every district jn the State there are more or less of patriotic 'Democrats who bave,resolved that they can not support the Democratic party without peril to the Republic. On the other hand; I have yet to notice the first,prominent name as a supporter of Judge Woodward, that was on the list a the friends of Gov. Curtin in 1860.. • • - —Will the loyal masses of the Democrat ic party not hoed this concurrent testimony from their old and tried leaders ? These men are not candidates for office—they do not as a class seek political honors—they hope for nothing in thus separating from old party associations, but the common good df common country ; and they .of all men are entitled to respect and confidence. I doubt not that thousands of men unknown in the noisy whiriKof politics, will quietly deposit their ballots i with their old and patriotic leaders, in behalf of the governinent, and against the Democratic . - party. Enough, I cannot doubt, will. do so to make Pennsyl vania sp&lrumpet-tongued to the world that t •• hatlitbli - c must liveLtlist Treason must die! A. s. af. NEW YORK A Day's Shopping on Broadway—"Le Matson de Violet .—A Lesson in French Pronunciation—Ste w ar.t's-4 Ship wrecked Correspondent,Acc.. Correspondence of The Franklin Ilepreitory. NEW Yorm, September 28, 1868 MR. EDITOR :—The present letter is cal culated to teach a great moral lesson, and is intended particularly for the. ladies. May they read, reflect, repent and reform. _I pro pose to give a careful history of , one whole day's shopping—real woman's shopping—on Broadway. Permit me to ;pluck a quill from a Canary's wing, wherewith to write the daintyivords. It was - nine o'clock, A.M,, land a beautiful, bright morning, when accompanied by a la dy friend, I started out to attend to a few little commissions for some friends in the country. We first went to the " Maison_ dE violet," to get some of Jouvin's gloves— (mind you must call it "Maysong duh veeo lily," and Jouvinyou must call "Jewvang.") After_ submitting to a number of questions, such as, "Is ze feengares long ou short'?" "Do you wish zis colare, vich is so bootifool as , nevare vas?" "Does ze laydie veer her clOves to peench?" etc., etch we made our selections, and walked a little further down to Stewart's. But first let me tell you some thing itbout STEWART'S, even though it_ has never struck the enterprising 'gentlemen to increase his business by _advertising in our paper. Mr. Stewart has a wholesale estab lishinent further down Brociadway, occupying the entires space between Chambers and Beade sts., his retail house bein g at the cor ner of .Broadway and Tenth st., close by Grace Church, Which points out the rose-col ored path to Heaven. The building is a huge pile of marble, dear knows hiw many stories high—a temple dedicated entirely to dry goOds. The building is so high, or the . ladies are so leaded down with dress, that there is an arrangement by which the citsto. mers are taken up and down a hatchway,_ like packages. Theoms are full of clerks, With All sorts of beards and moustaches and bald heads; with real, solid, heavy old fel lows, that look like Englishmen, who seem to haih nothing to do but-watch the clerks and each other, bow to the ladies, and 14, "this way, madame—gloves,•miss? turn to the right, then to the left—stockings, sir? third room to the "left—shawli, ladies? second floor, up stairs—carpets? down stairs, if you please. You will hear the clerks rapping with their lead pencils on the various coun ters, crying "cash, cash, CASH!" 'correspond ing to an Indian's war-whoop, or the Caliph battle cry, indicating the death of another enemy., "Cash" you wily find to I mean a-small pert boy, half a fathom long; Who carries the cash received to the cashier,' and brings back the' change to, the clerk, who -- , I then hands it to the puschaser. Each floor is one entire room, but the first main floor is so arranged that there is a variety of aisles for different classes of goods: Well, we went into Stewart's, and asked to see this, that, and the Other thing,- not taking what we didn't ' , mak butquietly 'having our own way, notwithsMnding the skillful clerks tried their best to get off their old goods. Having real ly a curioSity to see someof those extrava gancies that I had often heard of, I got them to show me some Cashmere shawls,: varying in price from $5OO to $2,000, some linen col lars for tWo,- three, four and five hundred dollars, and various other little articles that would make a woman worth something to her husband. j Some of the clerks almost over powered Me with their dignity. One had a Way of saying "y-e-e-e-s" that made me fair ly shrink within myself, and another had his hair arranged in a mode that aroused my en vy and admiration to such -a degree that I have not yet recovered from the effects. Go where I Will,- do what I may, that head of hair haunts me. The only thing I ever saw I that could approiimate ii was a` wax figure in a hair-dresser's show-window. It was mi raculous. I In time, however, I Believe amen could get over it,—a Woman never.. Having made our purchases, we retired as - gracefully as, possible, with only two accidents * viz: the knocking Ithe breath' out of one -lady with My elbo*,and:half tearing the skirt from another by tramping on it with one of my feet, onlyi too thankful that I had ~not put both my feet upon it, in which case partial nudity would Surely have been the result to the lady, kind the-police court to me. We thefi went to ITbsdell, Pierson & Lake's, where fluty have on their windows "id ron parte Fr4no„ais"—here we talk French,— and bought some goods. Thence to Arnold, Constablel& Co's, then to Le Iloutellier Bro's e and after ;that I became hopelessly mixed up. Like a sailor fallen from the yard arm into the ste l rmy sea, breasting the waves gal lantly, his head appearing occasionally upon .: t the top of foaming wave, I struggledlagainst hope, an was finally flung panting and breathless upon the rocky shore of my hotel as the sun was going down in the disturbed west. Ribbons and velvets, gloves and gai ters, ,silk - J and merinos, shawls and cloaks, corsets and hoop skirts, handkerchiefs and veils, collars and cuffs, flowers and feathers, bows and belts so inextricably interwoven in my bran, that nothing but "a lodge in some vas wilderness" can ever restore my peace and 'quiet. I have wondered since -what nse II was, for the most hopeless inan-• ity charafterized my mjlirements during' the littler hay . of the day, and were it not for the deficiency in_mypurse and the huge pile of "things" 1 I would fain believe that - I had been the Victim of a dire attack of delirium tremens. The pleasantest memory of the day's toil and moil and turmoil (as a darkey preacher would say) is the undefined " reflec tion that,iimstled as I was in the dense crowd 1, .of lady inlyers, Itdamag,ed more dry goods, I than II) rchased.
