Vgi.DNESDAY, OCTOBER 28; 1862.
-In another column of to-day's paper
we give the official votefor Governor.
The - poll is unprecedented—being lar
ger than that of 1860, notwithstand
ing the, fact that full twenty thousand
Pennsylvania 'voters now fill
authrtely graveS, heroic martyrs to
preservation ofour sacred Nation
ality, and not less than fifty thousand
. more were denied the right of suffrage
Solely because they confront the foes
of the Republic in the field. Gov.
Curtin's majority seems, mall with
se-large a - vote east; but it must lie
lborne in mind that of those who were
Tefused the privilege: of voting cer
-4inl,y nineteen - twentieths of - them
would have cast, : their, votes for him.
Had the' popular expression of the
State not, been restrained' by Judge
' Woodward'B decision disfranchising
the' soldiers, Gov.:Curtin Would now
be the - Governor elect by not less than
50,000, instead of the meagre 15,000
by which the State has been barely_
isa4.ed frOm fatal hostility to the goy
or*ent. Grateful as loyal Ten every
where must 'be for the declared ma-
jority on the right side,:it is due >to
- the'great 'issue that the moral weight
athe . disfranChised voters of the State
be : considpred in estimating the fidel,
ity of ourgreat Commonwealth to our
Free institutions. •
'—The 'Union men of Pelinsylvania
were beset with embarrassinents in
the late contest, such as would' have
be,p" fatal' in, any ordinary politieai
-struggle. Especially in the Southern
iii,qpntics did the.loyal men labor under`
almost crushing disadvantages—some
of them unavoidable, but others were
wantonly or stupidly imposed upon
us. The invaded counties were be - set
by 'maligliant Copperheads with un
tiring energy, and a thousand petty
-streams of poisontowed out upon the
pebple from the fountain heads of
rsneaking traitors. Every man who
had been plundered by the rebels, or
who had sneered from - the necessary
occupation of our' territory by the
Union troops, was counseled by every
species of falsehood to array himself
against the government because the
goyernment did not promptly remit.:
nerate him; and hundreds of votes
• were lost to the Union cause inithis
section, because of these 'persistent
appeals to narrow selfishness, when
a great Natjon was struggling for the
- liberty that,overshadows and protects
eyery home, every civil and religious
right', and insures safety to the person
and property_of every American citi
zen. The' failure to compensate our
people was charged to the wanton
perverseness of the State and Nation
al administrations; and peace and
prompt payment were promised la
vishly if Woodward should be chosen
Governor. A few were thus 'deceived
and made to turn against themselves,
for falsehood ever outstrips truth in
an even race; bid the great mass of
aarsufferers stood manfully in sup
pori 'of 'the right. -
The draft was a staggering load.
Tit was no fault of the administration,'
that it proved .a ridiculous failure to
the government anda costly farce to
the pbople-; nor did.the authorities
do anything more nor less than their
duty , in prosecuting it. Men were
imperatively demanded fol. our weak
ened armies, and so emboldened - had
- the foes otthe government become
that volunteering was wholly stopp
- The administration, had but one clear its skirts and - that was
to exhaust the authority it' pos
sesied to procure men. That the law
pritviding. for a draft was shamefully
defective, waslhe fault of Congress,
I na- of the administration; and they
Ihad:to- wade through Congressional
blunders and harass, bleed and alien
ate; twenty citizens for every man
added to'' the -army. Had the $3OO
exemption clause been omitted, and
each able-bodied man drafted been
required to serve in person or by sub
stitute, men
, would have responded
with comparative cheerfulness, and
the draft Would have been sustained
by the people because of the palpable
• good attained by it; but when its
failure was evident to all, it took-into
the ;•areay only now , and then : some
pennilessiund friendless citizen; whose
lot was deeraeds cruel on e,n ot 60 much
because he had, ,tn go,-as because his
neigbors were =bled not to
Many, of 'course, 'did' not stop to in--
quiie whose fault it was that they
bw .~_,. ~..,_, . ~
were harassed, by
,a draft that' was,
fruitless of good, and men' Were !tot
wanting to 'seize the favorable oppor
,ttmity to impress.thein with the con
viction that the government was des
potic and faithless to the people.
But bad as the draft was when con
ducted skilfully and divested of all
wanton oppression, it was made worse
. by , the stupidity andreekless disre
gard of the rights of the people by
the Provost Marshal General. -Just
On the eve of an election, the people
of Somerset, Bedford and Fulton were
summonedtereport at Chambersburg
to claim exemption, pay commutation
money or furnish substitutes. Many
of them had to cross the Alleghenies
and travel nearly three hundred miles
-costing them largely in time' and
money' when the Board of Exeinp
tion could have gone from county to
county'with little or no inconveni
ence. Repeated applications Nfere
made to the Provost !Marshal General,
and the members of the Board joined
in the requeSt, that the people should
not be neediessly , dragged over the
mountains himdreds of miles; but no
regard whatever was paid to the ap
plication, although in several other
'districts of the State the authority
for. the Board to go: to the various
county towns was granted. It would
have been a small matter for three
officers and a, few clerks to go to Som
erset or Bedford for a week ; but it
was not a small matter for one l thou
sand mento'cross the Alleghenies and
come one hundred and fifty l.miles to
transact an hour's business, , That.
the people appreciated it as an inso
lent disregard of their convenience
was not surprising; and instead of
losing Fulton by 2GO, and. Bedford by
'2BO, and gaining Somerset by over
1,300, the only wonder is that - we did
not\lose 1,000 mere. - We beg Col.
Fry to bear in mind that the Success
of:this 'war and the safety of the g,ov
ermrnent are 3 ,vitlith6People, and need
less oppression in the execution of
laWs cannot be justified by the .pre-
Burned sanctity of military regulations.
—Altogether the Southern counties
did well. The Union men struggled
heroically, and imßroved' materially
on the vote of last - year in every. coun
for South of the Suquehanna, and can
justly claim' their lull part in the great
-revolution that has declared in behalf
of the preserVation of our imperiled
Nationality. -
The scene has shifted again'; a Vir
ginia, and Lee is retreating pursued
by Meade. The rebel army is .all
south of the •Rappahannock again,
and probably has its main strength
soutkof the Rapidan, and Meade holds
the line immediately north ;of the',
Rappahannock. Sensation correspon
dents, announce daily that b, grand
battle is imminent; but we 'do not
look for a Idecisive engagement be
tween Meade and Lee at present.
Lee moved north recently for one
of twu reasons, or probably 'both.—
He knew that Meade had been weak
ened to strengthen hattanooga, and'
i ffelt well aSsured hat he could not
give battle Unless quite near to Wash
where he would have short
lines and ample. supports. His p9r
pose therefore doubtless was either
to force him to accept battle with the
hope of destroying him and capturing
Washington, or to compel him to re.;
treat upon Washington; enable Lee
to destroy his railroad lines as he fell
'back toward Richmond; and throw a
part of his army to Bragg for deci
sive operationo, before. Meade -could
threaten hiin-again south of the Rap
pahannock:l In this Lee has been .
Sadly disappointed. ltireade . retired
toward Washington in order, with
his army perfectly in hand; defeated
Hill severely' at Bristow Station; re-.
sumed the Offensive by pursuing Lee
as soon aahe attempted to retrace his
steps, and jee was- scarcely back to
'his old lines .before Meade was in his
front ready to force him to - give 'bat
tle or to re:treat toward,Richmond in
case he shOulo, Weaken his ranks to
assist Bragg.. Lee cannot now re
duce his army to reinforce Bragg, and
unless he !Aloes, Meade will hardly
force him into an engagement,- The
armies in Virginia will pretty. Certain
ly- face each other without collision
until tha absorbing tragedy in Ten
nessee and Georgia has become his
tory. .. I . , ,
Jt4znoW Chattanooga is the cen
tre of iiirerest on both sides, and both
armies are being nerved and strength
ened for the , decisive blow. Davis is

sions, to inspirit the despairing, and
to- implore.the ',soldiers of crime to
make a desperate death struggle for
Supremacy in East Tennessee; for the
safety of Georgia. The Knoxville
Register, now printed at-Atlanta, Ga.,
discloses, the desperation of the, reb
els. It says that="the , very existence
of the Confederate States depends on
the re-occupation of Tennessee c by•
Bragg. Our enemies know this as
well as our own Commander-in-chief."
Davis has reorganized Bragg's army;
has addressed the troops, in the course
of which he says—" Our cause de
pends upon you!" and adds that "very
much remains to be done r, There
is no doubt but that alt the 'resources
of Treason have been exhausted to
give Bragg strength. -
On the' other hand, Stanton, the
Secretary of War, is with the Army
of the Cumberland in person, and an
entire reorganization of Rosecrans' ar
my has i been effected. Gen. Thomas
takes the immediate command, while
Gen. Grant takes the general com
mand of the several departments _in
the south-west.' The impending bat
tle will doubtless be fought under the
eye of Grant himself, for upon it is
hazarded everything. If Bragg shall
be dafeated, - Georgia, Mobile and even
Richmond must soon be at the mercy
of Grant. if Grant shall be discom
fitted, then must East Tennessee be
surrendered, and Nashville would be
the farthest point we could hope to
hold in that direction. The terrible
shock; so fraught with weal. or woe
to- the Republic, must soon'come.—
Gad speed the cause of Freedom'
WE condole With. the Spirit. It
had fondly hoped for the election Of
Woodward :" but elected he was not.
It had unclouded faith in - the success
of its ticket in the_ county; but its
hopeS have faded out in despair; and
now in the agony of its _disappoint
ment, it bids as doleful; tearful farewell
with its " last hope for the Union!"
But in spite of itself, hope still lingers;
the days and nights of the 'Republic
have been recorded as heretofore;
faithful men still believe in a preserv
ed Nationality; heroic armies still
confront thn bloody banners o trea
son; but the Spirit refuses to be com
forted, and in sepulchral - tones utters
-the prophetic admonitioil" Wait!"
It had- piped to our people and
they danced not;, it had mourned to
them and they wept not; it plead
with them
.and they voted not ; it fal
sified to . them and they believed not;
it them and: - they hated
nit; and now in its hour of gloom, it
would cloud the land with the dread
mystery of threatening prophecy, as
it points, as if with skeleton fingers,
to the avenging future,- and inirls
upon us the agonizing monosylable
—" Wait !" •
It could have died in - peace ; but
when its " eyes turned for , the last
time to behold" the sun of Democra
cy, visions of fraud flitted before it,
and it gasped uneasily as its'incohe
rent inspirations went out for " the
first fair election" Of the future. By
all accepted rules of arithmetic - and
logic, the Union vote of Pranklin
county- was a glaring fraud. The
vote was but 331.' larger
thaiT --- ever before, while the Union
vote was but 177 smaller than the vote
of 1860; but; its the Democratic ticket
still failed of election, of,course fraud
stalked forth in every precinct and
haunted the Spirit's evening hours of
life. We would that, if determined
to die, it might have died serenely—
not as the perturbed spirit that rush,-
e 4 to the unknown future amid the
:s4rges of Helena, with the imagery
of wavering coltlmns playing fantastic
tricks with a bewildered brain; but
like the settled of a summer's
eve, that leaves lingering in its path
the hopeful promise of light on the
morrow. But it would not thus die.
' t would be a victim--
To all the pangs and fury of despair."
And it resolved that those who
n Lo‘ t with it should be divorced
pe, as it uttered its fearful
We beg the Spirit to live. It: "last
hope" may yet return to it, if It will'
but look with loyal eyes and give a
loyal heart to its imperiled Country.
It would die unwept—its septildhral

THE Age, having grown weary over
the election returns from Perinsylva
nia,-"Ohio, Indiana, and lowa, has de
voted its attention to Constitutional
law., It criticises the decision of the
Court of Appeals . of New Y‘k, by
which the government curreniTs is
declared a legal tender, and especially
complains that one of the Judges ap
plied the term 'wickedness" to the
rebellion. It says that "equally out
of place, it seems to us, are the re
marks of the — Court in reference to
the 'wickedness' of the rebellion."—
Certainly The,-idea, of so denomin a:
ting such innodent amusement as aim
ing, by perjUry, and murder, to des
troy a', Republic, is wantonly harsh,
and the tender sensibilities of the Age
revolt at it. Had Judge -Denio en
larged on the "patriotism' of the re
bellion and declared government cur
rency worthless, the Age would have

WOODWARO friends fought the late

arrest the Ma - ryland Legislature and

"none should escape!" What an in

We are once in a while startled with the
announcement that the rebel armies have
suddenly become immensely strong; and
when Gen. Lee commenced his late moye

to 150,000 men. The most reliable informa
