fittve the gratification of believing that the

over a year, acting Brigadier Geeral, yet
does' not relinquish his command of' the Reg

picturesque kind; the autumn months, in this
ititude, are the most' pleasant of the year;
and the' Weather I think more delightful than
arky other part Of the' country.
, The surroundings of Washington are much
shore endurable than the city itself, and I am

Washington has themeanestmud and nioreof
it, than any city in the world, but, all that is.

The draft in your County has come off, 'but
from the columns of Your journal I infer that
very those who were drafted • 'conle off:t
to the war; a 'small Battalion indeed will,tho
16th District -send, to do battle for the cause
of the Union, out of that noisy effort, but
•300,000 more men are w:inted z (whot a favor- ,
itenuniber that is of our President,) ail I do
hope that we will ge,t them speedily. -, It might
not be out of order' here to remark that the
nd - Pa. Artillery can still accommodate sever
al luindrad men in her ranks, and I don't
know that our friends could do batter than
to 'enroll themselves, with us, which _effort_

-I am so glad that the "old and tried" friend
Qt the soldier—GOv. , Curtin- 7 ,bai been so
handsomely endorsed by our people et home.;
could the soldiers have voted,' a majority un
heard of before for any candidate for Guberna

our favorite "Andy." I regret and am sur
wised that the "Green Spot" did not do bet
ter. Lee's visits to Pennsylvania must become
less frequent or Franklin County will be lost
tO our cause. _
The health of our regiment is good; large
Barracks 20 by 100 feet are built for each

be dry, airy and cosey, dnd th, o - ugh our duties

thus confirmingithe prediction so Often made,
:that these great-States would falew - the lead
of all the others in'which elections had been

The campaign was one- of unexampled'te

=vitatto the life of the Iterublic at issue, they
pandered 'to the lowest prejudices, and exci
ted the vilest passions of the people, instead
of meeting them jn a' lofty and patriotic
manner, and appealing to the 'virtue and in
telligence of- freemen. The,conduct. of the
campaign, on our part, was in istriking con
trast with that of the'other side. Our speak
ers every, where declared themselves in faVor
of sustaining the- Government in its measures
to a' uppress the rebellion, and they made the
position of the party so clear, that the most
ignorant voter in the State could not misu:n : :
derstand it. - Thank fortune ! with the tif
umph of dur•candidates, weave also a clear
triumph of our principle's. • •
,Gov. Curtin -mails splendid earopaig
Boldly proclaiming' his principles on every
stump, he.made votes whereVer fie went; and
he told the people in every kpeech that - if
they . did not agree with him in sentiment,
he did not want their votes. I Although not
in robust health, 'he - sustained himself ably
to the lust, and infused a life and eatnestness
into the canvass which no other person could
have given, it, Evidence of. strong. •attach.
merit by the soldiers was everywhere appa
rent. As he, runs materially ahead of Judge
Agnew, who was a most availab l ie candidate,
IL is Tear that he'has a hohron the affections
of the people
,equal to,' if not greater than,
any other man in the State.: j
I never saw the LoeofoCps,die quite so bard
as they do this time. They', should be rac disaster by this time, and take
trouble coolly. It was
- perfectly clear, at
midnight of the election, that Curtin Was
elected by a decided majority, and yet the
Age could not . see. it' for three days', after
wards ; and, Charles J. Biddle, in reply to
numerous inqniries of his' friends, assured'
them the contest was very close. The Stu
pidity, or something worse, of Messrs Welsh
and Biddle, cost their friendi, who relied
upon then, not less than ,an ihundred thous
and dollrirs in bettiitg.,
The Union party have carried both branch
es of the City Councils, which Will give them
possession of all the city departments. If it
had riot been for the 'efforts lof the Copper.;
heads to retain possession of the city patron
, age, Curtin's majority would,have been 2,000
greater in Philadelphia. They fought des
perately for this object, and besides coloniz
f ing in the close and doubtful wards, they
polled a large number of illegal votes.
The "Green Sp - ot" circum
stances, gave a good vote, and I am glad, you
succeeded in electing your whole County
ticket. You had local difficulties to contend
against which did not apply to any other
section, and we would not have been sur
prised if Woodward had received a sMall
majority. In the calculation inade•by' :the

- The following reminiscence of Washington
life, during the dark sad days, when the Na
tional capital owned, the usurpation of the
Slave-power, we find in the correspondence
of the New York Evening Yost:'
Forty years ago, a wealthy planter come
fro•n Florida or Louisiana, to reside in Wash
ington fur a time, bringing with him' a son,
a tine manly boy of thirteen
- or fourteen. At
the levees of his lather, which were' then
fashionable, he tencived the caresses of the
ladies 'and the encouragement of thegentle
men that his age, intelligence and his father's
position naturally elicited. Of his family,.
none accompanied his father besides this son,
in his visits to Washington. In due course
of time the boy, on whom; his father's•'affee
dons were evidently - centered, was sent
North, and was there educated, graduating
at Harvard or Yale, with an honorable stand
ing in his class. On his return to this city
he avowed a love for the North, acquired du
ring his college life, which was not restrain-
ed in its expression by his hither, who fos
tered and encouraged it zealously, and read
ily consented to b is permanent residence.t h ere.
lie desired, however, that his son shah' re
main-with him here during his o wn stay.
An appointment was procured for - him us a
clerk in the Wan Department, and he enter
ed upon his duties.
Among the acquaiitances formed at this
time was a ftentleman from: Pennsylvania-,
add the chief clerk of a bureau, who was the
father of a girl yet' in her teens, lovable in
her character, as well as very beautiful. In
timacy begat friendship,l rind it 'was hardly
a matter of wonder that i hive should- follow;
With the blessings of all they'wcre ma :Tied
,at St. John's church, in this city, it happen
ing to be about the first (marriage that ever
took place there; and leven now"the long
rows of carriages, the fair dames'and rich at
tire, the music, the crowded parlors, the
splendor and joy which crowned the wedding,
are vividly depicted by those who treasure
the chronicles of society in those ) days:
The young man's father had ! bought and
furnished an elegant house for his children,
and they removed at once to their own e-tab
lishment. Not long after the'rearriage; and
while in the full tide of happiness, the father
was called home,•and left his son and daugh
ter, intending soon-to return. They receiv
ed no intelligence from !him for week after
week, which caused them anxiety, daily in - -
creasing to alarm: At last; one day, when
the son had just decided to go in . search of
his father s -a carriage daShed up to , the-
door, '
a young man stepped out, and,-followed by'
the sheriff octhe district, walked 'into the
War DepartMent, and before all his-Compan
ions, in the broad light of noon, arrested the
son as 'the slave of his father! •
The son solenanlydeciared that his father
had manumitted lain, and that heebbad,seen
the- will long.~ sinenin which it had been
-done. - This Atrage shocked -the • sensibility'
of even an effete slave community. Mr Mon
t*, then President, and others,high in pow
used all the argument, all _the entreaty
!tongue could utter, offered money without
stint., for the ransom of One whom all loved
and esteemed,. and whose condition, to that
hour, no one addreamed. ,But the . young
man,possess of 'all-posver in the::easer and
the son of an enraged fandly, mocked/Ahem,,

his manumission or escape:

rho late . elections have not only secured
faithfulhad loyal Governors in several States,
but they have made Borne :other Executives
understand that tbe,People are for the gov
ernment and not against it.- Gov. Seymour
has, ever since - he - Us been in office, embar.
reused the general goverament ,in procuring
men from Nciv York, and that State is now
greatly behind it quota, while Pennsylvania
has promilly filled every requisition made
upon her.
But the,late election has.opened Gov. Sey
mour's eyes, and from being, the willing
accomplice, of a murderous mob in resistance
to the laws, he has taken a bola stand in
support of the army and the cause of the
Nation. He responds to the Preiident'slate
call for troops by the following excellent
proclamation, which we einnmend to the
Spirit and other grumblers, in this vicinity :
October 20th. 1863.
. -
The - President of 'the United States has
called upon me, as Governor of the State of
New York, to• ftirnish its quota 'of 800,000
men, to recruit the volunteer forces of the
United States, which will be largely reduced
during the coming year by the expiration of
the terms of enlistment.
- At,this time ,the defences of the national
capital are menaced l ty a superior force, the
Army of the Cumberland is in an imperilled
condition, and the military operations of the
Government are delayed and hindered by the
want of adequate military power, and are
threatened with serious disaster:
In this amergency it is the duty of all the
citizens to listen to the appeal ,sent forth by
the President, and to give efficient and cheer
ful aid in .dlling up the thinned ranks of our
It is due to our brethren in the field who
have battled sO heroically for the flag of our
country, the Union of the States, and to up
hold the Constitution, that prompt and vol
untary.fissistance should be sent to them in
this moment of their peril. They went forth
in the full confidence that they would at all
times receive from their fellow,-citizens at
home a generous and efficient support. Ev
ery emotion of pride and patriotism should
impel us to give this by volunteering and
contribution of men and money, and not'hy
a forced conscription or Coercive action on
the part of the Government. The 'President
also advises the citizens of the EC voile States
that, in the event of the failure to raise the
quotas assigned to them, a draft shall be made
for the deficiency, to ; commence on the sth
day of January next. •
Not only'does duty to' our soldiers in• . the.
field the honor of the nation demand that
we shall continue to.fill Our armies by volun
tary enlistments, but the interests of all clas
ses in society will be promoted by the success
of that system.
The unequal burden which conscription
unavoidably afflicts on a portion of Society
not only causes great distress and injliry to
ii dividuals, but enemore hurtful to the whole_
community than the 'equalized, distribution
of the cost and sacrifice; of volunteering,
which More perfectly adjusts itself kith e con
dition of all classes: .
The bounties which will be paid be the
General Government are eX'tremely
and much larger than those heretofore given.
They will aid the volunteers who shall enter
; the service to make immediate and ample
'provision for those dependent upon them.
I expect ali \ classes of our citizens to assist)
in recruiting the volunteers called for front
this State, by their influence and by liberal
contributions, 'and I call upon all State offil
- to give every assistance in their power
to promote enlistments into ohr armies, and
thus save our citizens from the inequalities,
irritations, and sulferinga of the draft, arid at
the same time animate, bur soldiers by an ex
hibition of sympathy and patriotc devotion,
and give strength to our - armies in their i bat=
ties for the preservation of the Union.
The Harrisburg Tetcyroph calls attention,
to th . e fact that the appropriation of 5816,825
for the schools during thecurrent year,, is to
be divided among the several districts of the
State, in proportion to the number of ihild
ren attending school therein. It Will be
seen by every one that this will materially
affect the amount received by the several
tricts. Foimer appropriationi'w/cre divided.
in proportion to the number of taxables re
siding in the townships, or diitricts, and we
see by the annual reports for 1861 and 1862,
the sum per taxable was 'iculty cents. By
the plan of division for this plar the districts
that have sent the most'schohirs to the pub
lic schools, and sent them the most regifhtr , -
ly,will receive the Most money'. This must,
as, appears to us, give to some districts nearly
double the sum formerly received from the
State,. while the appropriation of others will
be correspondingly small. We• call atten
tion to this now, in order that the eitizena
generally may understand the matter, and
when the State appropriation is received they
may know why the, amount differs so widely
from the sums formerly appropriated. This
is a subject of importance to all of our citi
zens, and it-would be well for thelocal .
pers throughout the State to call 'attention
to it in their editorial columns.
