Declination of Mr. Randall.
The Girard Union of yesterday contains
a letter from Mr. C. L. Randall, of that
place, declining to accept the Democratic
nomination for Register and Recorder.
We are somewhat surprised at Mr. Ram
dall's course, fot. at a meeting held in
l'airview a. couple of weeks ago we had a
converNation with him in which ho was
ituder,tood to say that he intended to ac
cept the nonunation. Whether we are

Democrat wants to vote for a man who
does not &life his support. •
Notwithstanding the denial by most of
the Republican papers, of the New York
Eozaing Pose': statement that an,ther
draft is soon to takerplace, the Washing
ton correspondent of that paper reiterates
the story, and says ho received it direct
from the offic4 - of the Provost Marshal
General. He charges that it will not he
more than six weeks before the measure
is ordered—or, in _other words, after all
the fall elections will have been held.
We have no doubt in our mind that what
he states will be the case, in certain con
tingencies. If Pennsylvania re-elects
Curtin, and Ohio elects Brougb, the' Ad- .
ministration will find in the result an
approval of its policy, and be encouraged
to enforce the draft with an unsparing
hand. If it is defeated in 'these two
great States, it will take warning by the
lesson, and fall back once more upon the
old system of volunteering, the only cor
rect way, and the only one that ever has
been or can be popular in this country.
it may appear strange to honest minded
; People that a draft should be talked of
by the men in power at the same time
that fifty thousand officers and men can
be spared from the aruiy to vote down
the Democratic ticket, but onAhat point
they will have to think and act for them.
selves. The simple issue between the
two parties in this State, so far as this
point is concerned, is Curtin and another
draft, Or Woodward and a return to vol
Gen. McClellan for Judge Woodward.
' Tue 'Pittsburg Post, a paper 'which we
have learned to look upon with unusual
respect, on acc)unt of the remarkable
reliability oC, its statements on political
questions, asserts unhesitatingly that Gen.
McClellan, who is now on a visit to Phil
adelphia,- is strongly in favor of Judge
Woodward's election. It quotes from a
letter written by its private correspondent.
in the latter cityi who says :
" McClellan lit here ; he is heartily in
sympathy with ho Democracy of Penn•
sylvania iu this groat struggle ; but he
has a delicacy a out making any public
demonstrations. i lie expresses himself
freely, however, ;to all who speak to bim
on politics." ,
We commend these views of their old
and cherished I der to the soldiers in
this county who eve been sent home by
the Administration to vote for - Governor
Curtin. 'No one who knows Gen. McClel.
lan at all will doebt that he is heart and
soul with the Pennsylvania Democracy.,
From them lie has always received en.
couragement, inl_ the time of prosperity
as well as adversity, and he knows them
to be patriotic and true to the Union.
however ,much Abolitionisti may revile
that noble man, the soldiers have never
lost their afrsztian for him, and we ask
them, knowing his devotion to the cause
of the coutitry k ivhether it is likely that
' he wouldi support disunion candidates
and principles, such as those of the,Dem
ocracy are repeesented to be ? Soldiers;

We hope our frienas Will nOt fail to send in
the returns of the election in their respective
districts, at an early period as can be. It
pouible, let the! . resdit.for Goverisor be
brought in on the'night of the election.
A Democratic meeting will be' held
ai tralon, on Monday evening -next.
It is now generally understood that
many of the soldiers' from this State, be
longing to the Army of the Potomac, have
been Bent home with the object of having
them vote. The numerous hospitals in
the vicinity of. Washington, Alexandria,
Baltimore, Annapolis, and other places in
Virginia and Maryland, have also been
emptied of large numbers of their inmates
attached to Pennsylvania Regiments, who
are given proper furloughitotestable them
to remain over election day. ' • neither
of these acts would we make any • bjec
tiolsl, if we supposed that they were do •
in a spirit, of fairness and consistent with
the public welfare. In a free and unbias
ed election. without any interference on
the part of their officers. and With a just
opportunity given them to learn the dis
_principles of the rival parties,
we would have no fears that the soldiers
would not be found on the side of Detno
eraoy,i reconciliation and Constitutional
Liberty. It is Unfortunate for the cause
of the nation gad to the disgrace of the
Administration, that nothing of the kind
is expected by party friend or party foe.
We have evidence enough to oonvin6l any
oandid minded man that the grossest
discriminations have taken place in this
matter. Officers and privates who were
supposed to be ie favor of the re-election
of Gov. Curtin were given ,the privilege
of returning to the State, while Demo-.
crats were atiliolutely refused it. We know
of several cases at least where a direot
pledge was required to be furnished to
vote against the Democratic ticket before
a furlough could be obtained. In one
Hospital that we could name, thirty in
mates were asked in regard to their po
litical views, and thirteen who were friends
of the Administration were permitted to
visit their places of residence. The other
seventeen, no more healthy or nearer be
iug fit for duty than the others, for their
manly independence, were ordered to re
turn to their regiments. Of course, under
such circumstances, many men could be
found, willing to bind themselves to al
most 'any pledge for the sake of seeing
their homes and friends once more. It
requires a, sterner spirit than the most of
people possess, for a soldier who has buf
fetted the toils and dangers of army life
or many months, toresist the temptation
of visiting his dear ones again, when the
only. price that is asked of him lies in the
simple act of casting his ballot.
But we strongly suspect that when the
soldiers have been here a few days. and
had an opportunity to judge for them
selves of the issues at stake, not ell of
them will be found willing to bow in sla
vishebedienCe to the desires of the Ad
ministration. They will see none of that
traitorous sentiment they were told that
the DemOcrats entertained, but on the
contrary find that, those who are reviled
by Republican papers as enemies of the
country and the army are in reality their
best friends. They will discover that
those who make the loudest profesiions
of "loyalty" are the last to volunteer.
and the first to claim exemption when
drafted. They 'will learn that a large
portion of the Republicans' traduce Gsa.
McClellan more than they denounce Jeff.
Davis, and that the Democratic party has
stood up faithfully in his defence, and
never hesitated a moment in responding
to the cry of the army that he Should
again be placed in his old position. They
will see, too, how they bate not been
granted the opportunity to return home
through any feeling of kindness, but to
subserve party ends, and help to PlT**
tuate power in the hands of a set of am
bitious officeholders. who have proved
their, utter incapacity to control the af
fairs of the government.
All these truths will be opened to their
gaze, and we can well imagine the as
tonishment and indignation with which
many will learn them. We have faith in
the good judgment and sound patriotism
of our pliant soldiers: Let them but
have a fair opportunity, and they will
show that the men who can face, un
daunted, the bullets of the Union's ens
mies in - the South, will not prove false
to the dictates of that patriotism which
nerved them to so many heroic deeds on
the battlefield, by voting to crush down
the only party that has signalized its de
votion to the *use of the nation by an
uninterrupted series of illustrious sots.
A Fed Earnest Words.
This is the last issue of oar paper, pre

It may be asked, what reason I have for
the assertion that the overthrow or the Abo

downfall of Davis and his party in the South.
In answer I point to the unmistakeable signs
in the shape of resolutions of public meetings

above all, ts the bitter denunciations .which
the Richmond Enquirer and other radical
papers bestow upon a class Omen whom they
call " re•constructionists." -There is enough
to be gathered from these things to convince
any one that there is a powerful party in the
revolted States, looking Co the restoration of

of any new ground that Would relieve their
