• • gard to the:lbramtion o a Union county
ticket,' without regaid to ,Paity. The
article 'was. written withoitt consultation
witkany one, and from desire,toob
tain an advantage for one party over
another, but simply because we conceived
it to be our duty, in the present crisis, to
discountenance all partizanship, and to
favor such a platform as would include
all loyal citizens, no matter what their pol
itics may have been heretofore.
The subjoined communication from
Newville, signedby
.fifiy•six of the most
prominerweitizens in,that-vicinity;-ehows
that we do not stand, alone in this matter,
and we hope to receive similar responses
from all parts' of the county. Now is the
time, in advance of the county conven
tions, to inaugurate a-plan by-which this
object may be effected; and, if our dem
ocratic friends will meet us in the same
spirit, the result will be the,selection of
good men, without any of that strife and
embittered feeling which has marked the
contests of'former years.

Pm: KAPPA SIG 111 A.--We have re
ceived a' copy of a poem, delivered be
fore the Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity by
ALDERT .11.- SLAM Esq of Philadelphia,
at the convention held in New Yorl, city,
December 1860. The Poem is entitled
the "Rosiorucian," and is worthy the
reputation of the author, who while del
ving amid the mazy labrynths of the Law,
finds occasionally a leisure hour in which
to woo the Muses.
Who Political, Campaign
We see by the proceedings of the Dem
ocratic Standing Committee as published
in the Democrat and Volunteer, that the
political fossils, who compose that body,
have not yet realized the fact that
the' Democratic party is as dead as
an Egyptian mummy. They have decid•
ed to call a County Convention fur the
purpose of putting a Democratic ticket in
the field, and Monday the 2d of Septem
ber-, is the day fixed for applying the gal-
Tuin battery to the old carcass. It will
only be a spasm.
ter; The editor of the American thinks
that the formation of a Union ticket this
fall, untrammelled by party politics, may
be very good policy, but doubts its prac-
ticability. In our. opinion, whatever is
good policy can be wade practicable, if
—people-ate content _ta_sink... their-personal
preferences, in a general desire to advance
the public good.
The Three-month Volunteers
The discharge of the three-monthvol
unteers jrt on the eve of a requisition
on the part of the government for more
troops, will have an excellent influence
on the new regiments about to be raised.
FroinrCthe sentiments expressed by the
returned volunteers with whom we have
conversed, hero and at Harrisburg, we
are led to believe that at least two thirds
of them will re-enlist for the war. This
wily give to each regiment a large pro
portion of well drilled men, who, with their
three months' experience of the require
ment of a soldier, will give our army a
degree of efficiency far superior to what
i~ was wh - erCifist called into service.
DESERTERS.- For a week or two past
we have heard vague rumors to the effect
that a portion of the men of the First
Regiment Pennsylvania Reserve • Corps
bad refused to - be mustered into the ser
vice of the United States,_ when they
reached Baltimore, and had consequently
left for home. It was mortifying also to
the people of this county that a majority
of the men were said to have been mem
bers of the Carlisle Infantry, Captain Mc-
Cartney. The following advertisement,
from the Harrisburg Telegraph of Tues
day, signed by the Colonel of the regi
ment, leaves us no longer in doubt on the

ment 01' Oren. Piferce.--Brigadier General
Pierce has published a statement in re
gard to the Great Bethel fight, in' which
he asserts that he advanced under explicit
orders, but that the plan of attack and the
orders-itecompanying it betrayed a want
of knowledge of the enemy's position and
numbers; that his command was composed
of raw recruits, with only twenty rounds
of ammunition, his small artillery force
having but twelve rounds, hardly sufficient
for five minutes' fire; that the cause of fir
ing into friendly regiments was owing to
the neglect of Gen. Butler to notify the
detachment which joined him from New:
port News to wear or recognize the white
badge worn on the arm.
Gen. Pierce, in conclusion, says that
" aftr the battle lad, taken place,, and
public opinion had fastened on me the
opprobrium of the defeat, I applied for a
court of inquiry that facts might be set
right, and the blame, if there was any,
rest on the proper officer. In answer to
my.application, nay, my demand, I- re
ceived but one reply, that a court of in.
quiry would reveal far too much that
would injure the service "
ARMY.-It is understood in official °holes,
says the Richmond Dispatch, that the
Secretary of War, the Hon. L. Pope
'Walker, has recommended to Congress 'an
a idition to the Southern_ army of three
hundred and fifty reiments, or such
number as, added to. the force already or
ganized, will make an aggregate of five
hundred and sixty regiments. Estimating
each regiment at a thousand men, this
would give a force of five hundred and
sixty thousand men, rantt and file The
white population of the Confederate States
being, in round numbers, five millions six
hundred thousand souls, the proposed ar-,
my would amount to just ten per cent. of
the whole, or one soldier to every ten white

V.—We stated in our last that the 14th
and 15th regiments of Pennsylvania vol
unteers, on their return from Virginia,
had encamped hero on the.!27th of July,
to be •paid off and mustered out of ser
vice. There must be. gross negligence or
culpable neglect somewhere, that forces
these men, when almost within sight of
home, to wait two weeks for their money
and discharge. The' Government knew
when. their term - of enlistment expired,
and what points they would be ordered
to;• And it would have been very easy to
have sent agents in advance, prepared to
adjust the accounts of the soldiers with l
the least possible delay. We are aware
that a large number of men weje to be
paid off at Harrisburg and Philadelphia,
'and that time is necessary to make out
th€ pay-rolls in pruper form, when such
'duty devolves on inexperienced persons.
But. the Government might have guarded
against this by prompt action and an in
crease of force' in the pay department, so
as to avoid even the semblance or neglect
ing the men, who had so Willingly vulun
teered to defend their country's flag.
With some exceptions, the men have
behaved quietly. and orderly; and our
citizens have rendered their situation as
comfortable as possible, by the most pro
fuse hospitality. The paymaster com
menced paying the regiments on Wednes
day, and it is to be hoped that by to-day
all the men will have received their hard
earned money, and 'started to meet their
expectant friends. It requi'res nearly •
ninety thousand dollars to pay these regi
THE SICK SOLDIERS —Sine() the two
regiments of returned volunteers have
encamped here, about scvenly of them
have been taken sick, five of them have
died, some discharged, and about fifty
yep remaining, all of whom will probably
recover. The pr'evailing disease is' said
to be camp fiver, and the symptoms seem
to be sore mouth and threat, bleeding at
the nose, and general prostration of the
system. The ladies of our town, who are
always among the first to sympathize
with suffering, have acted nobly in this
- matter. - Through- their - influence - and
energy, hospitals have- been established
in the College, Uratninar , Sehool building,
and a private house on Pomfret street,
where tho'sick are properly cared for by
some of their soma-odes and an efficient
corps - of ladies, a number of whom are
always in attendance to smooth, as none
but woman can, the bed of sickness.
That,such a large number of these
men:should 'get suddenly ill herti,.need'
-nOt, be a matter of surprise. When the
regiment arrived here, some of them, no
'doubt, had the latent seeds of disease
within them and we have the 4,Vhority
a.physician for saying that if-they had
beon..paid off promptly and.: sent home,
