September 14 5 1564,
VOLUNTEERING—THE DRAFT.—Volut i teerini .
has been very brisk in most of the districts of this
coutt , during the last two weeks.. Ant-the,
Greencastle, Washington, Waynesboro', Green,
Guilford, Hamilton, Peters, Letterkenny, Warren,
and probably other districts in the county, are
altogether or nearly full with their respective
quotas; and what is most gratifying, they have
put in the very best class of men for soldiers. A
few of the am hundred day men on duty here re
enlisted and were credited to seine of the town
shif but most of the men who have entered the
se ce were of our young, active, brave, patri
ot' en, mil() fed that they can best serve their
eimitry in our gallant armies. Many of them
hAbeen in service before—iu the-126th and Uhl
1588th, and some had already served over 'N.°
years. We learn that the draft will not be mode
at present in Chambeteburg. It would be but
just to postpone it indefinitely, and we presume
that the temporary postponement means that no
order will be given to enforce it.
Many persons have flattered themselfes that the
drift will not be made in the districts which have
failed to'fill their quotas. This would he most
unjust to loyal districts which have Olen their
sans and liberally of their means to pay bounties.
and it would be the grossest injustice to our be
roic armies and to the National cause, now on the
- threshold of decisive -victory, not to put iii the full
number of men called tbr. The stronger our ar
mies are, less blood will be shed by treason,
and the leas money will be expended, for invinci
-ble,armies will bring the war to a speedy close.
. • We-have the official authority of the Secretary
of War for the assiirance that the delinquent dis
tricts will be drafted promptly. In a dispatch da
ted the 7th inst., Secretary Stanton says;—" The
Provost Itstrshal General's office is busily engaged
in arranging the credits of the several districts, and
is ordered to draft without delay for the deficiencies
in the districts that hare not filled their quota, be
ginning with those most in arrears. Credits for
volunteers. will be allowed as long as possible, but
thladrawage of filling the armies immediately re
quires the - draft to be speedily made in the defaulting
districts. All applications for its postponement
have therefore - been refused." Such is the latest
official information on the subject of the draft;
and delinquent districts should move at once to
cheer our soldiers in the field, and at the satue
time relieve themselves of the draft, by filling up
the quotas as promptly as possible. Volunteers
can be credited until the -draft is made.
ACKN9WLEDGtMENt —The undersigned, cone
mitfttmn behalf or their suffering Tellow-citizens
by the late calamitous fire, hereby tinder their
profound acknowledgments to the many kind and
generous friends who sent forward subsistence
supplies for their relief. These supplies came
at an opportune time. Thohsands were home
less, houseless and without the smallest necessa
ries of life. Our tow n wasm heap ot smouldering
ruins, dud grief; 'lamentation and destitution per
vaded our midst. Without these supplies the suf
fering °finally would have been greatly increased.
But you have extended to us substantial sympa
thy, not the mere word expression of charity and
friendship, but with it the earnest appreciation of
our sufferings in provisions which fed the hungry
'and the destitute. We need hardly - say that words
are inadequate to convey to you the gratitude we
feel-for the assistance you thus rendered us, hut
will ever pray that in it you may he blessed b) a
beneficent Providence in all those things that make
life appreciable, and that it may count to the reward
of each and every one of you in the life to come.

A SOUTHERN RAILROAD.—It will he seen by
reference to an advertisement in to-day's paper,
that the Commissioners under the net incorpora
tin,g the Conuellaville and Southern Penn.ylvania
Railway company, mill meet at Bedford on Fri
day. the 14th day of October next, to receive I+ uh
scriptionm to the capital stock of this important
We are assured that arrangements have been .
matured for the early location and prompt com
pletion of this vital link in our Southern railroad
connections; and the citizens of the Southern
counties should take the liveliest interest in facil
itating its progress. It will, when made, give
new life to thedong isolated border counties, and
open new avenues for various articles largely con
sumed bye our people, which now cost enonnoudy
because of the immense transportation tax added
=to die original value. The construction of a
_Southern railroad will bring us into immediate
communication With rich coal fields and vast for
ests of lumber, and reduce the price of those
comnrdities fully one-third; and in addition it
give tut a direct - rbutewest; build up new
tiiwns along the line ; start on our water
powers; bring our exhaustless beds of superior
ore ifito use, and enhance the value of every acre
of land in Franklin and the adjoining - counties
To C bombe rsburg, the cent re of the great wealth
of the Cumberland 'Valley, now in ruinB, this
movement is the boon of promise, the silver-lining
to the cloud that envelops our despoiled people.
It will give a new impetus to our town—will cre
ate new demands ; will attract a large amount of
capital to improve our now waste but valuable
lots, and will give employment and hope to hun
dreds now on the brink of despair. With Cham
beraburg in communication with the great West
by direct railroad line, it must in a few years,far
surpass its former weatth, enterprise and 'cle
gante; and we hope that every citizen will give
his best efforts to push forward the work.

to be voted for in this county are now complete.

'PH N . 11TH PA. CAVAutv.—Again
has the gal ..t Old regiment covered itself with
glory. ••• e.witness gives an account of the
part they sustained in the great fight for the Wel
don railroad. He says:
"The fight wart commenced on Thursday by Col. S. P.
Spear, 11th Penna. Cavalry, by making a dashing charge
on the rebel advance. The rebels_ fn turn charged him.
Then both format drew off for a Mad charge. the rebels
commencing the charge. But no sooner had they mad"
their movement known Min Col. Spear, who was waiting
their advance, gave the order for a counter charge, and
with a yell both forces met, but our troops rem too nitwit
for the rebels, and, charging upon their flunk, we broke
their lines and captured three hundred prisoners."
It will be tha,i_sesen_ that our gallant boys are
doing pevere bnt glorious service. There is no
reginignt in the field that the Rehs , so much fear
as the old 11th, and no name is so'great a terror
to them as that of brave Sam Spear's. ' We Pei.
that the Richmond papers chronicle the capture
of this noble officer, but we feel assured that "old
Sam," a. he is thmiliarly called, is still with his
Brigade, and reheldom is destined to endure fur ,
ther troubles at the hands of "the notorious Yan
kee raider." •
ON Wednesday last the sullen thunders of ar
tillery rJverlierated through the shattered walls
of Chambersburg, and simultaneously with the
report of the first gun, the two remaining bells in
town—on the German Hrethrmed and Lutheran
Churches—rang out their merry peals over the
triumphs of the Union arms at Athmta and INfo
bile. The Flag of the Free was run up on the
large Union pole, and was seen,streaming from
various other parts of the town. Loyal hearts
were gladdened where rebel vandalism had done
its worst to waste and desolate, and with one ac
cord they gave thanks to the brave men who are
winning the only enduring and honorable Peace
that can be made with traitors, by destroying the
armies of crime. There were a few sad hearts
in our midst—some who thought of Chicago—of
the "failure" of the war—of "immediate cessation
of hostilities," and of the judgment of a lo} al peo
ple to come; but they mourned in silence.
WE notice that Major Shearer, of the rebel
army, who was captured some weeks ago in the
neighborhood of llageistown, has been sentenced
to fifteen years confinement at hard labor in-Fort
Delawan?. Hovas born in Mechanicsburg, Cum
berland county, but for a number of )ears prior
to the breaking out of the war he was a resident
of Frederick, Md. It will be remembered that

It is untieves , ary Mr me to say to )on that this
nomination comes to me unsought.
1 am happy to know that N% hen the nomination
was made the record of my public life was kept in
Th,_etli•et of long and lariedservie, in tb,Urni
dunu ar and peace has been to e.trengthen and
make iudellible in toy mind turd hart. the lut.• and
reverence for the [ilium Ciargtinition, laws and
flag of our country impressed tipon m• in early
These feelings have thus far guided the course
of in) life, and must continue to do so to its end.
• The existence of more than one Government
over the region which once owned our flag, is in
compatible with the peace, the power and the
happiness of the people.
The preservatinu of ..or nom was the sole
avowed object for which the war was commenced,
and it should base beenconducted in accordance
with those principles, is hick I took occasn ni to
deelare when in active service.
Thus conducted. the work of reconstruction
would lime been easy and we might hm e reaped
the benefit of our many lictories on land and sea.
The Union Ns as originally' funned by the exer
cise of a spirt of concilialion and compromise,
and to restore and preserve it the same spirit must
prevail in our councils and in the hearts of the
people. The re-establishment of the Union in all
its integrity is, and must continue To be, the indis
pensable condition in any settlem'•ut.
So soon as it is clear, or even probable, that
our present ads i.rsaries are ready fior pence upon
the basis of the Uniim, we shook! exhibit all the
resources of statesmanship_practieed by civilized
nations and taught by tile tradition of the Amens
can people—consistent With the honor and inter
ests of the country—to secure such peace, re-es
tablish the Union and guarantee for the future
the cOnditional rights of every State. The Union
is the one condition of peace. and we ask no more.
Let um add — what I doubt nut was, although un
expressed, the sentiment of the Convention, as it
is of the people they represent ; that when any
one State is willing to return to the Union, it
should be received at once with a full guarantee
of all its Constitutional rights. If a frank, earn
est, and persistent effort to obtain these objects
should fail, the responsibility for ulterior conse
quences will fail, upon those who remain in arms
against the Union; but the Union must be preser
ved at all hazards.
I could not look in the face of my gallant com
rades of the army and navy who have tisaght in so
many bloody battles, and tell them that their la
bors and theinierifiee of so many of our slain and
wounded Ideiheni had been in vain, that we had
abandoned that Union for which we have's° often
perilled our lives. A vast majority of our people
whether in the army or navy or at.home, would,
Its I would, hail with unbounded joy the perma
nent regtoration of peace, on the basis of the
rinon under the Constitution, without the Min
skin of another drop of blood ; but no peace eau
be permanent without Union.
As to the other subjects presented in the reso
lutions of the Convention, I need only say that I
should seek in the - Constitution of the United
States, mid the laws framed in accordance there
with, the rule of my duty and the limitations of
executive power; endeavor to restore economy
in public expenditure, re-establish the supremacy
of law and by the operation of a more vigorous
nationality, resume our commanding position
among the nations of the earth.
Gen. A. H. Coffroth
The condition of our finance, the depreciation
of the paper monej, and the burdens thereby im
posed on labor and capital, show the necessity of
a return to a sound financial system, while the
rights of citizens and the rights of States, and the
binding authority of law over the President, the
army and the people, are subjects of not less vital.
importance in war than in peace.
Believing that the views here expnlosed are
those of the Convention and. the people van rep
resent, I accept the nomination. I realize the
weight of the responsibility-to be, borne, should
the people satisfy your choice.
Conscious of my own weakness, I can only seek
fervently the guidance of tine Ruler of the Uni
verse ; and relying on His alf-pwserfid aid do my
best to restore Union and pence to n suffering
people, and to establish and guard their liberties
and rights. I am, gentlemen, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,

,payable not less than five nor more than tiventy years
,Sem their date, as the Government may elect: They
will be mulled in denominations of 850, 8100, 8500, 81,000
int! 85,1:01, and all' subscriptions must be for fifty dollars
or some multiple of fifty dollars: -

portation charges as soon after ihe receipts of the original
Certificates of Deposit as they can be prepared.

king deposits subsequent tricthat date must pay the-inter
est accrued from date of note to date of deposit.
Parties depositing twenty-five thousand dollars ned up
wands for these notes at any oue time will be allowed a

paid by the Treasury Department ,upon the receipt of a
bill for the amount certified so by the officer With Whom'
khe deposit was made. No dedvtion for commission must
be made from the deposits.
SPECIAL 'ADVANTAGES OF THIS LOAN.
IT IS A NATIONAL SAVIXGS BANN, offering a higher
rate of interest than any other, and the but security. Any
savings bank which pays: its depositors In P. S. Notes,
considers that it is paying in the beat circulating medium
of the country•, and it cannot pay in anything better, for
its own assets are either in government securities or la
notes or bonds payable in government paper.
It Is-equally convenient a. a temporary or permanent
investment. The notes can always be sold for within a
fraction of their we and accumulated interest and are
the beet security wtt6 banks as collaterals for discounts.
Conntrtale into a Six per cent. Sal Gold Bond.
In addition to the very liberal interest on the notes for
three years, this privilege of conversion is now worth
about three per Cent per annum, for the' current tate for
.5.10 Bonds is not less than Wins per cent. premium, and be
fore the war the premium on six per rent, U. S. stocks
wits over twenty per cent. It will be seen that the ao:
tual profit on this loan, at the present market rate, is not
len than ten per cent. per annum
Its Exemption's= State or Municipal Taxation.
But aside from all the advantages we have enumerated,
special Act of Congress craves all bonds and Treasury
nom from local ZEISALIOI2. On the average. this exemp
tion is worth about two per cent, per annum, according to
the rate of taxation in various parts of the country.
It is believed that uo securities offer so great induce.
menus to leaden as those issued by the government •Is
all other forma of indebtedness, the faith or ability of pri.
Tate parties, or stock compaales, or separate communities,
only, Is pledge for payment, while the whole property of
the country iv held to secure the discharge of ail the ob.
ligation, of the United States.
While the government offers the most Spend tones for
its loans; it believes that the very strongest appeal will he
to the loyalty sad patriotism of the people.
Duplicate certificates will be issued fur all deposits.-
-The party depositing Iota( upon the original
tilleate the denomination of notes required, and whether
they are to heissued in blank or payable to order. When
so endorsed it must be left with the °facer receiviug the
