The destruction of railroad iron from Ma
nassas Junction is, to use a common expres
sion, i a big thing." I could not see a bar .
but was bent. Most of them Are left in .the
shape of a ; some are twisted round and
round, others are bent twice round some:tree
or telegraph pole, and left in such a condi
tion that the tree must be cut doWn before
the iron can be got off. The only destruc
t tion of any,great amonnt to the road has been
in iron and ties, 'though "all'the: bridges and
water-tanks were destroyed. Some of the
e nbankments were partly dug down. I only
saw one out,- near Bristow Station; that had
been filled. . This Was done by throwing in
a layer of Cedar and Spruce pine, then a
layer of earth dug down-from; the sides, and
so on to the top. This part of the road is of
course very rough; bid 1n a feWdays will be
as solid al; ever. On account of the destruc
tion of the road, transportation has been bad,
consequentlt the soldiers have , had very poor
living. For the last ten days" the food has
been composed of only three things :-Ist,
" Herd-tack," Which is old **v. : crackers,
made some year& ego out of flour and_ water
and baked' so hard that Soaking them for 24 -
hours makes no. more impression on them
than it would on.a board. The 2d article is
" Salt. Pork ;"- thiit is' pork ; salted so. much
that a vi•cek's soaking will not make any im
pression on the taste of the . stuff. Many of
the soldiers,,imagine that Lee.was after this
pork in his last move, SQ as to get the salt.
One thing is certain, it, makes the m e n so dry
that they have drank up all the water far and
near;and on account of the scarcity of water
—if the pork is continued -LMeade will 'be
compelled to advance to the HaPpitliant ock,
where all he has to do is to continue the pork,
and he will be able to cross that river with
out pbutofts. : The _3d find last' article is

railroad will in a few days by in good order,

Gov.' Curtin returned to Harrisburg - last
evening,. after havingspeken.stne ten times_
in Nese 'York, in three days—ettinatencing;
at Buffalo and ending in New York city.
He was received with great erhusiasm 'at
every point by the Union men of the Empire
State, and they flocked by thousands to see
and' hear Pennsylvania's honored Executive.
Whilein New York city he - was made the
recipient -of several banquets, at
,which the
leading men of the State, Chi' and military,
attended to do hohoi to the great champion
.of loyalty in the Keys6ne State. He is look
ing exceedingly well, and will' give his un
divided attention now to the new call for
troops' r --the regulations for - eulistmeni hav
ing just been re*eived officially.
- I notice that a number of Union' journals
in this State have presented the name -l of
Gov. Curtin for the Presidency or. Vice Pres
idency; and it must be confessed that no one
has to-day a stronger hold on the loyalty of
the nation than the man who has, mainly by
his eloquence and personal efforts in 1860,,
and by histested fidelity and: patriotism in
1868, twice rescued Pennsylvania from the
foes of the Free North. He has achieved
what no Executive opposed to the Demi:lora:
cy has, ever before aehieveil, and what no
Democratic Governor has accomplished since
1841—axe-election ; and his triumph is due
less to political - Skill than to his positleb
strength' with the' - loyal sentiment of the
State; to his unfaltering - devotion to our
brave troops in the• field, and to his. liberal
administrative policy.
I do not speak by authority,' but I feel
well assured that Gov. Curjn does not en
courage,. the use of his name as a candidat.t
for any political position at this tinie. What
everhas,been said 'or thought to the contra
ry, he - was a most unwillingcandidate before
the Pittsburg Convention; and now thitt he
has been chosen to the Gubernatorial chair
for another term, we hater& little in •saying
that he will rather, let others struggle •for
political preferment, while he, devotes him:.

Speaking of tha" defeat of the Democracy
in New York, the WorLd, until lately a whin
ing copperhead organ, puts the saddle on the
right horse. It says
"But the peace men have been - ,wrontin
supposing that the people of the loyal - States
would allow the - to 'end in arty other way
than by the triumph otthe Union over artned
opposition. The ke y - note struel by"the la
mented Douglas in the first year of the war
touched the most sensitive and enduring
chord of the popularheart. The war can end
only by prostrating armed rei•istance ; and
while it lasts the people will never allow it to
be made a secondary litystion. - But is the
people have declared they will not, allow the
war to end except bylhe - triumph of our
arms. the-billy way 'to" bring the administra
tiOn to trial for its malvenation is to dispose,
ai4 speedily as possible. of the case which
stands first on the docket. It is clear that
while the war lasts no party can succeed that
does not make - its energetic prosecution the
paramount object. We said this, in sub
stance, after the Connecticut election ; Were
peated it afteethe 'Maine election ; we reiter
ated it after the Ohio election; we trust - it
needs, no further enforcement now."

In 1860 Gov. Curti carried Centre coon=

feated by 844.. The change is thus pointedly
explained by the Bellefonte Press,_ It says
that the reason is obilous,, and is' at outs
