Glorious Union Victory!
Tha - eleetibh for Stifle officers, 'in ern - beiS' of
'Congress, and of the State_Legislature,hcld
in Rhode Island on Wednesday of last week,
resulted in a glorious victory for the cause
of the Union. The Union Republican can
.didate for Governor is elected by 3,311 ma
jority over.his highest opponent, and 3,009
over all. The Lieutenant Governor and the
rest of the Union Republican State-ticket is
elected by similar majorities.
To Congress two staunch 'Republicans are
elected in place of two so-called Conserva
tives by majorities respectively of 1,916 and
1,022, This last named is the majority over
Browne, member of the last House of Re
presentatives. Sheffield, the other member,
not being a candidate in the Eastern district.
The Legislature is strongly 0 - P
-the same
political complexion—the Union Republi
cans having about 45 majority in the House
and 10 in the Senate.
This signal UniOn victory may he justly
taken as a notice to the copperheads that
their day is well nigh over. In the Easte n
Congressional district the issue was fairly
made between the supporters of the admin
istration and those who cavil at every thing
likely to be effective in potting down the
rebellion. Tilos. A. J ENCK ES, an earnest and
talented Republican, beats BRADI;nr, a com
promiser, by nearly two thousand majority,
where two years ego we were defeated by
nearly 400. BRADLEY. is beaten in every
town in the district but one, but it is clue to
him to say that his signal defeat is attribut
ed to his candor in avowing his sentiments,
which were not exactly the doctrin for
Rhode Island.
The Providence(R. I.) Journal of Thurs
day says:
We imagine that there will be no difficul
ty in understanding the position of Rhode_
Island after this. She stands by the govern
ment now and always. All honor to our
fellow citizens for making so splendid a , re
cord for her "yesterday. - •
Anotner Union Victory
The election in Connecticut on Monday last
resulted in the triumph of the Union ticket.
Bucttinutimit is elected Governor by 3000 ma
jority over acYmoun, a gain of 2500 majority
over the same 'candidate three years ago
Fire have gained ono member of Congress,
giving us three from the State. The Legis
lature is largely Republican.
The canvass in Connectiout was itbe gm:At
spirited ever conducted in that state.. The
issue was fairly and squarely made between
loyalty and treason. SEYMOUR, the Demerat•
io Gubernatorial candidate boldly expressed
himself as opposed to the war and its objects,
and upon this issue was the canvass conduct
ed, with the above gratifying result.
ger The Volunteer of this week, contains
more than its usual
.amount of gas. It ex
cuses the copperheads of South Middleton
township for refusing to elect as tax collec
tor, CMARLF.Y, KAUFFMAN. a young Union vol
unteer, who lost his right leg on the Penin
sula—by explaining that his opponent was a
Democratic cripple. True, when KAUFFMAN
was nominated by the union men, the veno
mous copperheads feared that he might be
elected, and to prevent that calamity, numi
rioted a copperhead 'farmer, who, although
wealthy, and engaged in a prosperous busi
ness, was crippled ; and on 'that account
might excite'sympatby counter to that which
would operate in favor of KAUFFMAN. This
is the way these vipers succeeded in defeat
ing a one-legged Union soldier. It was cer
tainly b proud victory !
Then again, the Volunteer shows its ears
000spioulously when it states ,that in Monroe
township (where it admits we have a heavy
majority) the Republicans worked with espe
- dal zeal to defeat• a "cripple-soldier on the
demooratie ticket, , but. were ,defeated." It
strikes us that the logical inference would be,
thatin-a township like Monroe, where a large
majority of the voters are Union men, and
an especial . ofOrt,ori their' part was made to
Mont.& candidate on the opposition ticket,
that-suoh.effort,Lwould-be-likely-to-prove -BUS"-
cessful i _but inasmuch as the Volunteer thinks
otherwise; wetnust . be wrong. " '
As to the,emettfe in . the Town Council, we
stated what we'be facts; and , the Ale,
nial Of, theeopperheads and their organ does
not alter 'them. 'The,' Volunteer cannot add•
itnithiog to its ,reputation for making -asser
tions,without foots or denying facts, when
they are unbomfortablo—its obaraater in that

Ccipporhead Loyalty.
We are continually reminded by the copper
head Joarnals of the north, that prior to the
Proclamation of Emancipation, they, and'the
party, they represent were for vigorous pros-'
cation Of the War: 'Nowy we hate liars—wo
dispise the Mean meshing onwards, Wao cOinl
falsehoods for personal'or party motives, and
that they are such, their actions abundantly
prove. The Vallandinghams, Brights, Woods,
Hughes, and .Seymours, of the north,
always opposed the war c and traduced the
Administration. They openly boast that they
have never voted a dollar or a man for the
.subjugation of the south." No actions have
been too. base for these vile wreohes, and no
oalUmnies too mean, but their journals have
printed with a delight such as, assassins take
in the destruction of their victims. Colonel
Seymour, the copperhead candidate for Gov
ernor of Connecticut. owed his nomination to
his avowed hostility to the war, and open
advocacy of treason. Last Summer, almost
throe months before the Proclamation was
issued,'a Union War Meeting was held at
Hartford, and in his absence he was made a
Vico President. After it had taken place he
wrote a letter to The Hartford Times, protest
ing against such use of his name, and contin
uing as follows :
It it is necessary to be more explicit, I beg
leave to state that knowing what the meeting
would be beforehand, 1 could not have teen
induced to attend it, or take a part in its do.
iogs--and that, having glanced at the speech
es and the proceedings generally of that meet
ing, 1 particularly desire to clear myself from
any participation, directly or indirectly, in
what took place there. The meeting, if 1
have not misunderstood its - general bearing,
is one which ignores peaceful remedies of any
sort, as a means of restoring the Union, and
calls loudly for • men and means to aid in the
subjugation and consequent degradation and
overt brow of the South. I follow, gentleman,
in no such crusade, neither will I coutrioute,
in any way, to the accomplishment of ruck
bloody purposes. The monstrous fallacy of
the present day. that the Union can be re
established by destroying any . part bf the'Sutith,
is one that will burst with the shells that are
throwti into its defenseless cities, and leaVe
the condition of this country, after its trens
ures are exhausted and its brave men on both
sides consigned to hospitals and graves, a
spectacle for the reproach and commiseration
of the civilized world.
Respectfully yours,
This publication,appears to have elicited a
private communication from Mr. Thomas
Lawrence of New York, in replying to which
Mr. Seymour used the following lAiguage :
I abhor the whole scheme of Southern in
vasion, with all its horrible consequences of
rapine and plunder. Yuu cannot help but
see Sir, what thousands of us are beginning
to see, that there can no Union be got in this
way. The war might have been avoided and
the Union saved. This is getting to . be the
prevailing opinion. And it would have avoid
ed but for a fat - Lade set of men besieging the
President, and who wanted blood and plun•
der. They have got bulb, and humanity weeps
over the wrecks of body and soul. Those
who drive the car of war at this time have no
more idea of saving the Union by their bloody
sacriaces of this sort than they have of cluing
ing tho course of nature. Still they go on.
And in the face of all this, these lying hypr
crites tell us that they were for the prosecu
tion at the war until it became a war fur the
. .
liberation of the slaves instead of the restora
tion of the Union. Is this loyalty to the goy.
ernment? History will tell who were the
Benedict Arnolds of 1862.
Our Consul at Leeds
At a banquet at Leeds on the occasion of
the marriage 'of the Prince of Wales and
Princess Alex ,ndra, among other toasts the
Mayor of Leeds gave the following :
" The Representatives of Foreign Pow
. (Cheers.)
We cut from the Leeds Mercury the fol
lowina response of our former fellow citizen,
Mr. MARSHALL, United States Consul, also
responded, assuring the company that any
thing which concerned the interests of Eng
lishmen was not a matter of difference to the
American people. (Hear, hear.) The rece -
title the people of that continent gave to the
Prince of Wales was indicative of the kind
feeling and of the respect and reverence
which Americans entertained towards his
august mother, the Queen. ( Hear, hear. and
cheers.) The Mayor had been pleased to
express the hope that the peace and amity
which existed between the two nations
might continue, and he ventured to say that,
so far as his nation was concerned, nothing
was nearer theif hearts than that they should
continue at Oettee with the people and the
land ~ . hick they regarded •as their mother
and their fatherland. (LoUd cheers,) In
the Intuit., he hoped that if between the two
countries there was any rivalry, it would be a
rivalry in science, in art, and in commerce,
and in an ear est effort to spread throughout
the earth a knowledge of the principles of
peace and truth. (Applause.)

The Best Way to put hooey out at In
toes[... _
The following information we insert in
our columns for the benefit of our readers
[From the Philadelphia Ledger, March 27.]
One of the most surprising things in the
recent conversion of greenback notes into
the popular Five-twenty six per cont. Gov
ernment loan at r, is the universality of
the call. We happened in, yesterday, at
the office of Jay Cooke, who is the agent
for the sale of these loans, and the conver
sion of the greenbacks, and found his table
literally covered with orders and accoM- ,
ponying drafts for almost all amounts, from
five thousand to a hundred thousand dol
lars each, and from all parts of the Union.
The little States of Delaware and New Jer
sv are tree takers, as are also Pennsylvania,
New York and the New England States.—
But the West is most especially an active
taker, as well. through ber banks as by in
dividuals. Thu awout of orders lying be
fore us, all received during the day, a
mounted to over fifteen hundred thousand
dollars. With this spontaneous proffer of
money, Secretary Chase must feel himself
entirely at ease, and will take care to put
himself beyond those money sharpers,
whose chief study is now to profit them
selves most from the troubles of the coun
try and the necessities of the treasury.—
There are millions of dollars lying idle all
over the country, and while the uncertain
ty existed as to what Congress would do,
and the bullion brokers were successful in
running up gold to the discredit of the Gov
ernment issues, this capital was clutched
close. But as the policy and measures of
the Secretary of the Treasury aro gradually
developed. contidencein the Government
and in the future is strengthened, and hold
ers are row anxious to make their long un
employed means productive—hence the
ready and liberal Investment In the Five-
Twenty loans at par. Every town and vil
lage throughout the country has Individual
holders of mimey, to larger amounts proba
bly than over before at one time, for which
satisfactory takers can not be found. Many
of those aremow investers in these - loans,
and the number of such is likely to increase
until the demand shall put all the Govern
ment loam) on a'par" - With, at least, the loans
of the various incorporated companies.—
The country banks aro also free takers for
themselves and .their customers. On the
Ist ofJuly this Five-Twenty Year loan will,
under the law, be withdrawn.

Dear Sir :
Your letter of the 20th inst. is received,
and I will cheerfully give you the inforrna-
Lion desired by answering your questions in
due order.
Ist. These Bonds are called Five-Twon
ties" because, while they are twenty year
Bonds, they may he redeemed by the Gov
ernment in GOLD at any time after five
years. Many people suppose that the In
terest is only 5.20 per cent. This is a mis
take; they pay Stx per cent. Interest.
2nd. Legal Tender mites or checks upon
Philadelphia or Now York -that will bring
Legal Tenders, are what the Secretary al
lows Me to receive. No doubt your near
est Bank will give you a check or Legal
Tenders for your country rundl.
3d. The Bonds are sold at Par, the In
terest to commence the day you pay the
4th. Ihave made arrangements with your
nearest Bank or Banker, who will generally
have the Bonds on hand. If not, you can
send the money to me by express, and I
will send back the Bonds free of cost.
sth. Tho bonds pay Six per cent. Inter
est—in •GoLD, three per - cent. every . six
months, on the first day of May and No
vember at the Philadelphia, or at
any Sub-Treasury in New York or else
where. It y o u have Coup.m Bonds, all you
have to do is to cut the proper Coupon off
each six months, and collect it yourself or
give, it to the Bank for collection. If you'
have Registered bonds, you can give your
Bank a power of attorney to collect the in
terest for you
6th. The duties on imports of all articles
from abroad must be paid in GOLD,anrl this
is the way Secretary Chase gets his gold,—
It is now being paid into the Treasury at
the rate of Two Uundrea Thousaed Dollars
each day, which is twiee as notch as he
needs to pay the interest in Gold.
7th. Congress has provided .that the
Bonds shall be PAID IN GOLD when duo.
Bth. You can have either Coupon Bonds
payable to bearer, or Registered Bonds pay
able to your order.
9th. The former are in 50's, 100's, 500's
and 1000's,—the latter in same amounts,
also ssooo's and $lO,OOO.
10th. No ! You will not have to pay any
taxes o n these Bond:4 it your income from
them does not exceed $6OO ; and on all
• above $6OO you will only have to pay one
half as much Income Tax as if your money
was invested in Mortgages or other Securi
ties. I consider the Government Bonds as
first of all—all other Bonds are taxed one
quarter per cent. to pay the Interest on the
Government Bonds, and the Supreme Court
of the United States has just deeded that
po State, or City, or Country can tax Gov
ernment Bonds.
11th. The
. present_ bonded...debt of the
United States is less than THREE HUNDRED
MILLIONS, including the seven anti three
tenths Treasury Notes ; but the Govern
ment owes enough more in the shape of
Legal Tenders. Deposits in the Sub-Treas
tides, Certificates of Indebtedness, &c., to
increase the debt to about eight er nine
hundred millions. Secretary Chase has
calculated that the ,_debt may reach ono
thousand, seven Aundred millions, it
the Rebellion lasts eighteen months longer.
It is, however, believed now that it will
not last six months longer; but even if it
does, our National Debt will he small com
pared with that of Great Britain or France,
whilst our resources are vastly greater.
12th. I have no doubt that the revenue
will not only ho ample to pay the ordinary
expenses of the Government and all Inter
est on the debt, but leave at least one hun
dred millions annually toward paying off
the debt, and that the Government will be
able to get out of debt again as It has twice
before—in a few years after the close of the
I hope that all-who have idle money will
at once purchase those Five-Twenty Year
Bonds. The right to demand them for
Legal Tenders will end on the first day of
July, 1863, as per the following authorized
notice .
On and alter JULY Ist, 1863, the privi
lege of converting the present Issue of

Letter from the Army,
ANNA MIA ' 10.,
March 21. 18133,...
Dear Father:—By your permission I will
give you a short sketch of a "Libby ' life.'
I; like many otherd, had a tour in the "Holy
City," Richmond. When we arrived in
Richmond we were marched to the "Libby
ed,' deprived of our blankets ankiLtteo_rly:_alt
oriiur money, we wore confined .; for four
days We arrived late in the evening, and,
after we u' ,derweet a •closa examination,
was much later; cOnskitiently, we re - ceivf-d
nothing to eat. The first Meal We' received
wag about 9 4: IC the nii,xt'daY, which we
enjoyed amazingly. %Ve - received two meals
per day •, the first at 9 A, the next at 5
The first 'meal was 2 oz. beef and 5
oz. soft bread ; the - second was '5 oz. soft
bleed and a 'composition of 'water wastings ,
from the slaughter . house and a few beans.
We - -were
,taken from Richmond. to City
Pciltit,'Where we took the a Vag of Truce
Boat," "State of Maine," on the morning of
March 7, 1863. :While we wore on beard
the "State of MOine," we reoeii•e4 !‘
Sam's, grub," which was more and better
than the " Libby swill."
We are waiting patiently to be exchanged
and - Sent to our respective companies; where
.yze.will report fi.r duty and be ready to give
Jeff." another trial. AfW e have never spoken,
but feel very much like giving a sly hint,
- Concerning our disguised guides. .The men,
generally, are opposed to those guides,. for
they are, as a general thing, rebel officers
under a loyal cloak doing their utmost - to get
a small force of our men to go under his
guidance to surprise a rebel camp, and being
able to accomplish their fiendish desires they
lead us oil until they have us into their well
set traps, then they turn upon us and slay us
like dugs. The last scout we were on we were
led by one of these disguised men. What
was the re: ult of this day's scout? Why,
we were led in a trap and our force was'eocn
pelled to fall back to Middletown, Va. Our
force was two battalliuns, and that of the
rebels was three regiments of infantry, three
regiments of cavalry and six pieces of artil
lery. This is the way we are deceived by
these Copperheads who put on the cloak of
loyalty and enter our lines, bringing news to
our officers, and when lye learn the truth we
find this loyalist to Vic a lion in a lamb's
skin. The soldier, like every other person,
learns and becomes wiser every day. We
will know better in future, and if our officers
should accept the guidance of one of those
Copperheads, and thereby be lead into a
trap, we will first shoo the guide, and then
we will be ready to attend to the rebels'
cases. GKo. W. NAILER,

the -enterprise will.. be successfully carried
The-importance—of -the _proper_edueation of -young ladies is a subject
which-has boon so frequently , set forth in
these columns, that we feel that almost every.
thing bas.been said that can be said on the
Sutject. The fact alone, that annually, a
number of our young ladies, are sent from
home to'sohncits and'colleges at a.aistance, is
ample reason anti-argument fur the establish
ing of this -institution. Our town affords
many -advautages and faoilities for, the Sue
oessful working'of a Female College—among.
Which we might with propriety enumerate the,
high.literarY character: Morality. and general,
culture, which oharacterizOs our jiecpple. If
to this we add the attractions of beauty and
healthfulness, which distinguish our town, we
think •we can fairly say that few places pre
sent equal advantages.
The College - is expected to begin its oper.
ations about the last week in August or the
first in September. Circulars will be issued
in a few weeks, giving the proposed plan and
other particulars.
