Borne tiollths ago the Pittsburg Gazette
ooneluded •to defeat the re-nomination of
• Gov. Curtin. .As he, had publicly and. in
geed faith declined totbe a candidate again,
and, at the time the, Gazette "moved upon
his works," cherished no wish or purpose
* VS have his name before the Pittsburg Con
vention, the Gazette became dizzy with the
prospect of defeatinga Jaen who was-not
running. A lolemn council was held in
at which a programme was d,.fi
-mapped out, looking first to the de
teat of Curtin in the Convention, and, fail
ing in that,-to defeat him at the polls. A
aeries of most vituperative and atrocious
. personal attacks upon . Gov. Curtin was re
solved upon, and, ill casting around for a
competent scavenger, by common, consent
Thomas Williams was selected. Approach
. :itigfhira on his egotistic side he was readily
flanked and bagged : and forthwith he hurled
this thnnderbblts of ivar upon Gov. Curtin
r .and his supposed inathediate eircle;of friends,
and eulogised, [Thomas' Williams, day after
- day in the editorial columns of the Gazette
,until the Co'fivention met. The editor of
the REPOSFI'ORY, although a private citizen;
. 'not a candidate for any position, and not at
:the time Seeking even in the least degree
to control or influence the action of the
Convention, was made the object of repea
ted assaults of the grossest character.—
Knowing that the author and aim of the
articles were too well understood to damage
° 'any one, we passed them by in silence; but,
'after the electipn, when Gov. Curtin had
been . vindicated alike in Allegheny and in
the State; by receiving the largest vote ever
polled for any candidate, we ventured to
put in a meek reminder to the palsied exe
cutioner of - the Gazette and those who had
used him, that it was sometimes possible
it men to go wooling and come home
sheared. The response to that modest in
,' timation we have in the Gazette ofthe 26th
uk., and in another column of to day's pa
per it will be found entire.
. •As Mr. Williams' article embraces several
distinct charges, which he has repeated un
til he 'Probably believes them himself, we
`will dispel the illusion by noticing them just
-mice. Oar support of the bill for the com
nintation'of the tonnage duties,, in common
with two-thirds of the members 'of the
• Houser—including nearly if not quite all
Williams' colleagues—and a majority
*of the Senate, is well known and needs
neither explanation or vindication. With
the composition of the Hopkins committee
,we had much less to do than himself. He
begged to be on it ; but the Speaker very
Properly refused to appoint him, giving .as
- hia.veason that it was net a proper place
for an insane man. Williams next appealed
personally to the members of the House to
• put him on by a direct vote, and had the
Speaker notified that it would be done ; but
upon a canvass it was found that fully two
_ thirds of the members agreed with the
Speaker; alike in his action and in his rea
sons, and the enterprise was abandoned.
• Considering that the House harmonized with
Mr. Wilhelm and not with usion the ques
tion of-tonnage duties, we submit that he
should not fly into our face because his own
friends thought him a fool. The adjourn
inent of the Legislature and the discharge
of the committee we had nothing to do
with, while 4r.-Williams had everything.
Scores of members voted for both solely to
get rid of his incessant and incoherent ra
♦ings,on•a hobby that he used for no our
*poOnt to hear himself talk, to see him
self In print, and to proclaim his self-con
gratulation that he was not as other men.
The House would have consented to allow
", him ho/f its time for his self-glorification
-and his shameless but impotent vitupera
tion of all others ; but as he demanded
pretty much all the time of the House, and
besides insisted upon - declaiming on him
'self and the tonnage tax, to members be
tween sessions; to strangers in the rotunda;
to the sweeps and pages; to . lamp-poste ;
to town-pumps, and,especially to bottles in
black; the House wearied toward the close
of the session ; and one morning while Mr.
Williams was detained in a fruitless effort to
get his swollen and befogged bead reduced
jo the proper dimensions to accommodate
his hat, the Boise disposed finally of him
and his follies.
The allegation that we favored the "dee
tion of the district which secured a vote,
siad gave a U. S. Senator to Copper
heads," is simply an ignorant or malicious
filsification of history. The -district allu
ded to is that of Bedford , and Somerset,
and Mr. Cessna's was the "vote" referred
When we state the fact that Mr. Cessna
had several hundred more majority in Bed
ford than the Union majority in Somerset,
and that he would have been elected had
the counties been connected, the case is
disposed of. The charge that ive'had torn
-up half a dozen veto messages in the pies
ence of the Executive himself ;." that we
'declared the war "but an idle expenditure
of money and blood,'.' and that we hoped
for foreign 'powers to interfere to stop it,
are all wholly, stupidly false. -There is not
the, shadow of truth pertaining to any of
Ahem, nor have they the merit of even plau
sibility. That they reached his brain in the
%isa,garieeof some bewilderingidebauch, is the
most, zliaiilable explanation, that can be=
given, lina, we accept it.
r-.-We &mad not have the public believe
that Mr. :Williams is a common liar, &W
-eyer clearly the apparently malicious atroc
ities of his erratic
. Pert would stam' p him.
He is one of. those whom the world should
judge kindly, and mingle. pity- freely with
the scorn his wrongs upon truth and decency
would seem to invite. Sadly as he wrongs
others, he no less sadly wrongs himself; and
his towering genius—once the pride of wes
tern Pennsylvania. 7 -has 'Ain lingering re
collections of, vanished honors and , past re
spect, as it is crumpling in untimely ruin
beneath the remorseless' assaults of life's
saddest infirmities; and he— .
"With his own tongue still edifies his ears,
Ana always list'ning to-himself appears."
That he is made the instrument of the cow
ardly and ; tualignant ; thus becomes the ap
parent author of the weakest andiwiekedest
falsehoods, and clouds his once honored
name.with'Worse than pot house scandal, is
his misfortune--not his crime. As his
better and brighter attributes have faded
beneath that avenging h'aild that spares no
human follies, .his weaker traits have been
enthroned where once was intellectual might;
and in pitiable conceit . he fitfully dreams
butthe evening of a brilliant life. Forgiven
and henceforth forgotten, him 'and his foi
bles are dismissed
=We have published the Gazette's rea
sons for its frequent and shameless assaults
upon the Editor of the REPOSITORY. Will
it- have 'the manliness to copy our reply•?
If o, it can have the field to itself hereafter.
The Spirit is the only journal that we
know of now that endeavor,s to bolster up
the fading hopes of the rebel cause. In
that paper, of the 28th ult., we find the
following :
itosecrans has been beaten back into the
fastnesses of Chattanooga; Meade beats an
inglorious retreat from Lee and retires with
in the fortijcatiOns of •Washington."
Again it says :-- ,
, ;it is folly to believd, as we are continu
ally' told, that the rebelliOn is almost crushed.
It'is revelling in the pride of its strength to
day, and pressing our armies •baelt from all
`its borders !"
The more conservative journalsin the in
terest of the rebellion—we mean those
printed in the South—take quite a different
and a sadder view of the aspect of things.
The Richmond 'Whig, speaking Of this dri
ving of Roseerans " into the fastnesses of
Chattanooga,". says : j ,
"If he (Rosecrans) le permitted to hold
Chattanooga, then our victory will be without
profit, and wehave only tb mourn that so many'
brare men: have died in; slain! He holds a
region pestilent with disaffection. and that
needs only the presence of the Yankee army
to ripen into full blown ;treason."
The Richmond Enquirer says that " the
enemy holds the gate of ,East Tennessee,"
and adds that " So far in all our operations,
though We have won 'a !great victory, we
have lost ground!" Equally conservative
are the Richmond papers
.as compared
with . their Chambersburg ally, the Spirit,'
in speaking of Meaee's "inglorious re
treat from Lee," and 1 his retirement into
" the fortifications at ! Washington."—
They probably doubt, the, truth of the
aSpirit sexclusive in forni a 4on about Meade's
"inglorious" tumbling into the Wash
ington fortifications, inasmuch as they
declare that he "managed his retreat most
orderly and that he'savedhis stores and lost
but few men and they also declare that
in the only battle fought during the march,
they "were generally worsted." lnstead' of
boasting of Meade seeking safety in " the
fortifications of Washington," they imagine
him to be closely on Lee'.s heels about the-
Rappahannock ! Strange delusion I
The South&n rebel journals-are eniinent
ly more' conservative than the Spirit also
as to the rebellion " retelling in the pride of
its strength to-day; and pressing dor armies
back from all its border's!" They have
some how or other Conceived the notion they
have not driven our armies hack any. where,
and that " the pride of their strength" was
somewhat shattered by the surrender of the
Mississippi and the division of th 73 territo
ry of treason ; by the defeat of Stone River
and the subsequent liberation of East Ten
nessee ; by Lee's discomfiture at.Gettysbuti
and his manifest purPose to winter south
of the Rappahannock. Probably they are
. not as astute—certainly not as sanguine as
the Spirit as to the triumphs of their cause,
for the Knoxville RegistiT deelares that the
"very existence of the Confederate States
depends on the re-occupation of'Tennessee
by Bragg;" and as Bragg has not yet, re
occupied Tennessee and - is. not likely tollo
so 'during the present war, they are glow to •
appreciate the nervous interest the Spirit
takes in their cause when it insists that they
are not only invincible and triumphant, but
actually revelling in the pride of its (the
rebellion's) strength to-day, and pressing
our armies back from all its borders!" -
Although not a profound admirer of Nor
than conservatism as taught by' Copper
heads, we submit that the Spirit is rushing
into fearful radicalism in its rebel proclivi
ties. Why can't it be a respectable, digni
fied rebel- journal, and-keep within range
of its southern coadjutors? Why insist
that everything is going to smash in the
North and that our armies are practicing
"inglorious" retreats and flying from the'
rebel "borders," when its cotemporariesa
the south are mourning over just such . a
state of affairs on their side? The Spirit
or the Southern rebel 'papers must be in
error, and unless our Generals are .wofully
deceived as to what they are doing, them
selves, the Spirit - is ontrebeling rebeldom
itself in falsifying the North and the cause
of the Nation.
tiff frank!ittlittOtOorv,l-414,atithttsburg,
We give in another column of to-day's
paper the proclamation of,G-ov. Cqtin call
ing for volunteers in accordance' with the
late proclamation of the President for 300,-
000 additional troois. It will be seen that
the quota of this tate under the late call is
38,268; but the administration Wisely calls
for all deficencies under former requisitions,
and thus increases the demand now made
upon our State to over 91,000.. The num
ber of men due from Pennsylvania on the'
17th of October last, when the requisition
was officially issued, was as follows
Deficit prim to draft of 1863
Deficit on present draft...
Quota under the new call
The item of 16,071 is made up-of men
drafted in 1862 and never reported for du
ty. The draft at that time Was made for
'the entire number of men then due under
all requisitions to that date ; but many de
serted or never, reported, and now 'they will
be liable to be drafted foi three years in
stead of nine months. The draft 4 1862
was necessarily made under the State laws,
and they had been franied in time of
peace and without any anticipation of-awar
demanding hundreds of thousands of men.,
They, were therefore fearfully defective, and
under their loose provisions it was almost
impossible to enforce them effectually. The
government abandoned all effort to compel
attendance of those who- did not report;
doubtless' for the reason that it did not
justify a system 'of police to, arrest men for
nine months' service.
The item of 36,754 is the deficiency on
the draft now in progress, and that will be
materially reduced by the time - the draft is
completed. Franklin will probably furnish
500 by men reporting or paying commuta
tion. When_the quota of men due on the
current draft was fixed on the 17th of Oc:;
tober, but few counties lad driated men in
service; and in
,a large number of counties
the draft -had not been made at all. NQ
part of this district could have been re
ported at Washington: at the time the cal
culation was made, so that all the men put
in by the draft or who pay $3OO will be a
credit to the respective.districts.
Another material credit may be had by
the re-enlistment of veteran troops now in
in the service. Every possible inducement
will be offered by the government to have
the old and experienced troops re enlist for
another threeyears, unless soonerdischarged
by the termination of the war; and a large
majority of them will do so, They are of
fered furloughs for some thirty days to see
their friends, and a very large bounty ; and
now that they are certain to be well sup:
ported by the' prompt .addition to their
ranks of enough
,to make them invincible
at every point, andbesides have the unmis
takeable evidence of the earnest
,support of
the people at home as indicated - in the late'
elections, they will not turn their ,backs
upon the Old Flag until they see it trium
phant wherever there is a foe of the Repub
lissonfronting its
We rejoice -at the decisive steps taken
by the government in calling for all defi
ciencies from the Statesl It is equal and
exact justice to all, and insures an - army of
not less than 600,000 men by spring to meet
the despairing hosts of crime. This is= the
surest road to Peace I
How beautifully sorrow and sunshine are
blendain human life—how divinely grief
is tenipered with hope. The' Spirit thus
touchingly, illustrates this truth. On the
21st it thus lamented :
"We had fondlyhoped for the election of
Jadge Woodward. We considered his election
of vital and momentous importance; and htb
.defeat throws a cloud over the future,'which
we would fain hrve dispelled."
. _
• ' Again it tnourneth thus—.
"This, triumph - of Abolition shakes our
last hope for the- Union !.* * *• May. the
great God of Nations avert the calamity!
We believe it is coining rapidly_ and inevi
Although the " last hope" is gone,_ and
it seems to - have but little faith in its own
prayers, it resolves in its midnight of des
pair, to die at the helm. It thus heroically
rushes into the hopeless breach :
'Yet we will not desert the old ship. We
Will always as heretofore continue to send up
our 'warning voice to tho man at the wheel.
And if the worst must come, we will still con
tinue ,to re-echo the immortal sentiment of
America's greatest statesman and beseech all
to 'cling to the Constitution as- the mariner
clings to the last plank, when night and the
tempest close around him !' -
The scene changes. A week has passed .
into history. - Morning and-evening time
.come and gone as usual, and " the
man at -the wheel" seems to have , heard
the" re-echo" of the Spine. The "last
hope" has returned, and ip that paper - of
the 28th it is jubilant and sunshine dances
in every line of its editorials. , In one arti
cle it announces, at a sad cost of truth, that
"Rosecrans has been beaten ba l nk into the
fastnesses of Chattanooga; .Meade beats an
inglorious retreat from. Lee, and retires
within - the fortifications of Washington;"
and in another article, with renewed
and manly pride it announces that the re
bellion "is revelling in the pride of its strength
today, and presing our armies back from
all its borders I" We do not wonder, that
with so much to give it comfort, it recovers
from its despondency about the defeat of
Woodward, and thus emits the sunshine
of satisfactiou - : .
"The more we reflect tipon the result'ofthe
recent election the better we are, in some re
spects, satisfied with it. It may in - the end
prove for the beat that Judge Woodward was
not elected. Had he been chosen to the Ex
ecutive chair of the State, the people would
most , 4ely have- expected more of him than
he would have been able to give them."
In the end the Spirit is " satisied,"--so
is the RIIPOSITORY I Thus misery and
mercy, 'sadness and sunshine have, been
blended in the Spirit's path; but .when it
can announce universal disaster to the
Union armies, it emerges into the fulness
of Pride ; ',and .ioy, and even buries - Wood

to volunteer, says that "Rosecrans has been
beaten back into the fastnesses of Chatta
nooga;' Meade beats an inglorious retreat
from Lee, and retires within the fortifications
at Washington—and all for want of men."
Three days before, the,abcrve was printed in
the Spirit, Meade was pursuing Lee on the
Rappahannock, and if Meade has lately been
"within the fortifications at Washington,"
we F are quite sure that no one but the writer
for the Spirit had the news., We do not
expect the ..'pirztto represent the - glooir of
relieldom truthfully, but we submit that it
should not thus defWme the gallant Army
of the Potomac for the purpose of throwing
themloud of despair over loyal hearts. In
'another article of the same paper it says
that the rebellion "is revelling in the pride
of F its strength, and pressing our armies bar*
from all its borders !" What a capital or
gab for Jeff.Tavis the Spirit would make.
While the :whole press of rebel r dom
mourning the disasters to their legions
criine at every pint, and deplo6ng the
waning strength of Treason,- the Spirit re
minds - them that they are " revelling in the
pride of its (the rebellion's) strength, and
pressing our armies back from all its 43or
ders I" Could the Spirit be forced into
some benighted corner of rebeldom, where
they don't get the news, what hopes it,would
inspire in its country's foes by the 'grateful
intelligence that the Old Flag is-receding
from all its borders ;" but in the regions of
intelligence and light it would only wring
'bonternpr 'from despairing traitors' for its
awkward falsehoods so clumsily disguised
with blatant professions of loyalty.

D. S. E. Dtrintr,n, of Fulton; will, .we
learn, be strongly pressed by the Pennsyl
vania' delegetion for one of the elective offi
ces of the nExt House of Representatives at
Washington. No man in the State could
be more competent, to fill such a position,
and certainly none could ;bemore deserving.
He has struggled for many years in a hope-,

to a subordinate position in the House at
Washington'. and has made himself known
as a most useful, efficient and obliging offi

the member of the State Uotrunittee for
his district, and as such has ever faithfully
fulfilled its exacting demands: Indeed . in

FRY, the Provost'Marshal Veneral
has written a letter to Col. Nugent, of NeW
York, in which he settles the ,question
to the effect of paying the $3OO commuta
tion money. He now decides that thepay
mcnt of $3OO has the same effect in regu
lating the credits in the respective districts
and in the State as if the conscr'pt had
tually gone into service, Thus Frank Pn
county will be credited on her quota for all
yam have gone into service in person or by
substitute, and also for all who have paid
commutation money—in all probably five
or 'six hundred. Col. Fry in his letter says :
"The State receives the same credit for a
man who has paid -comnlntation, as if the
'drafted citizen had gone .in person or fur
nished'a substitute. and in like manner towns
which have raised the money to' pay their
quotas receive the same credit as if actual
substitutes had been furnished ; and the Pre
sident has ordered that every citizen who
has paid the three hundred dollars commu
tation shall receive the same credit therefor
as if he had furnished a substitute and .was
exonerated from the military service for the
time for which he was drafted; to wit : for
three years."
TOE Richmond Extintinei, before the
electien in Pennsylvania and Ohio, said it
would hail the suc'•ess of - the Democracy
" as the birth, of a peace; party ‘;" that it

our Armies be victoriouN and it may be en •
doomed -with the strengthi of an infant Her
cules to strangle the serpent brood. Let

never pass the crisis of teething." After
the electioni, when. Lee and Bragg, and
Vallandigham, Woodward ,and Wood all
had - Proved most "delicate infants," and
sadly in need of " careful nursing," the
same paper consoles itself with the conclu
sion that th Northern' elections have lost
their significance !" Wonder if they ever
