The Governor's call for Soldiers.
In to day's paper we publish the proclama
tion of Gov. Curtin, in which he earnestly
calls upon the people of Pennsylvania to en
list in the service of the United States, under
the proclamation, o(the President so that the
quota of our Stale may be made up before
the 6th of January, and a draft avoided.—
The quota of the State is 38,268. Veterans
who enlist will receive $402 bounty, and one
month's advance pay ; others than veterans
will aeceivo one month's pay in advance, and
$302 bounty. Information can be obtained
from the Provost Marshals of the various
THE SPEAKERSHIP.—Among the other can
didates already named for the Speakership
of the house of Representatives is the Hon.
Emuu B. WAsumnor, of Illinois, who by
longest continued service, will be the senior
member of that body, Mr. Gnaw, of Penn
sylvania, was the last speaker. No better
succe , rMr of Mr. Grow can be selected than
Mr. STEVENS, of Penn'a, whose principles
are thoroughly Republican, and who has all
the experience and ability requisite for the
position. A great effort will be made to put
into the chair a mongrel member f om Ken
tucky or Maryland —whose love for slavery
is paramount to his love for the Union. The
President would have in Mr. Stevens a bold
and powerful advocate of all his measures ;
including Emancipation, Conscription, negro
Regiments, ,tc.
'The Chambersburg Reposiloyr :
The Carlisle Volunteer is jubilant because
the counties of Pennsylvania invaded by the
rebels gave a Democratic gain of 1,884 for
Woodward over Foster's vote of 1860. It
might have turned a little farther south,
where the rebel army is on hand all the time,
and found still more decisive Democratic
triumphs to console it for its overthrow in
Pennsylvania. The same 'paper, speaking
of the call for :300,000 additional troops,
thus crawls and writhes Mita slimy, coward
ly treachery :
"If we must enlarge the body-guard of
'John Brown's soul as it goes marching on,'
if we must have more enslaved white men
in order to free the 'eternal nigger,' let the
Conscription at least fall upon all classes

elections in Pennsylvania and Ohio, said it
would hail the success of the Democracy "as
the birth of a peace r arty ;" that it would "be

able to do more to hasten its growth than
Wood or Vallandigham. Let our armies be
victorious, and it may be endowed with the
strength of an infant Hercules to strangle the
serpent brood. Let retreats be the order of
the day, and it will never pass the crisis of
teething." After the elections, when Leo and
Bragg, and Vallandigham, Woodward and
Wood all had proved most "delicate infants,"
and sadly in need of "careful nursing " the

).Upwards of six millions of dollars
were subscribed on Saturday to the five-twoni y
loan. This enormous amount, voluntarily
lent to the United States, is an emphatic as
surance of the profound confidence reposed
in the Government by the people, and another
proof of the soundness of the great finanoias;
system which Mr. CHASE has organized. On
Thursday five millions were subscribed, and
the total amount now taken is over three hun
dred millions. Facts such as this prove the
progress of the war, vindicate the policy of
the Administration and the patriotism of the

jority for Brough in eighty-seven counties of
Ohio of over 62,000, a Union gain of over
67,000. Out of 26,000 votes of Ohio soldiers
25,000 are for Brough. In the Congression
al district of Vallandigham Brough has a
majority of 2,722 ; and in that of the 'Hon.

Democratic Frauds in Pennsyl-
There are some facts' connected with the
recent astonishing vote in Pennsylvania
which are deserving of rather more than a
passing notice. The figures we have already
given respecting the extraordinary increase
of the vote in Berks county are sufficient to
arouse investigation. But the facts show
that what is true of Berks county applies to
the whole vote of the State, as the subjoined
comparison will illustrate:
• Curtin. Poster. Total.
1860 263,397 2:30.269 493.666
Curtin. Woodward. Total.
1863 269,406 254,171 523,597
Gain, 6,009 23,902 29,911
Here it is shown that, with an aggregate
gain of 29,911 cotes over the grent total of
1860, the Union gain is only GOO 9, while that
of the Democrats is 23,902. Since that ge
neral rally of 1860 was made, the State sent
into the field 163,000 soldiers recruited for
the three years' service. Of the 200,000 men
reported by General Fry as having been dis
charged for physical disability, probably
one-tenth were from these 163,000, so that
by that cause some 10,000 have been return
ed home. Of the 88,000 deserters, perhaps
the same proportion were from these 163,-
000 Men, so that here are 8800 men return
ed home. The number of men sent home in
consequence of disabling wounds we cannot
estimate, but it would be safe to suppose
them about 10,000 from thistsante.force.--7
Allowing for the diminution of ibe force by
other causes, perhaps 30,000 would altogether
cover its returned men who were permanent
ly at home to \rote, and about 9000 still in
the service were furloughed and voted at the
late election, making altogether less than
40,000. Now of these, men not one in ten
voted the Democratic ticket at the election
this full, and yet the Democratic vote is in
creased 23,902. It did not come from the
Union ranks, for the lines gave been very
strongly drawn all over the State, and the
changes are just the other way.
Indeed the statistics of the election show
that the Union party, so far from having
lost any since 1860, has gained in the ag
gregate. We polled 263,397 votes in 1860,
and we polled 269,406 in 1-863. Where,
then, did the Democratic increase of 23,902
come from 7 Ot the 163,000 troops raised
in the State, for
years the Democrats
must have contributed at least one-fourth, or
sonic 40,7000, which, taken' from thrir vote
of 1860, would leave about 189,300 remain
ing voters of that party. Let us Suppose
that of the returned soldiers they had what
we have allowed them above—one in ten still
voting with them—that would be 4000 men,
increasing their vote to 193,300. Now the
natural increase of population would hardly
keep up the strength of the party beyond
this figure, when we consider the steady
drain of the mule population for soldiers and
sailors, and the far greater drain of th De
mocratic ranks caused by the changes to the
Union side. These conversions _ are num-
Isered by thousands, anU no one ever 'hears
of any the other way.
Above we have the real strength of the
Democratic party, estimated at about 193,-
300. Yet Woodward polled in 1863 no lees
than 254 171 votes. How is this difference
of about 53,700 to be accounted for? Un
less we believe that no Democrats enlisted
in the army or navy, that no conversions to
the Union side have taken place, and that
the party strength of 1860 was all at home•
intact, and that the increase of population
among Democrats did not contribute a man
to either army or navy, there is no other way
of explaining this immense aggregate than
by attributing it to the most outrageous and
systematic frauds. To render the matter
clear we append a comparative table show

/at - Governor Andy Johnson made a
speech at Nashville, Tenn., on the night of
the 17th inst., of which u correspondent of
the Ciaminnali Commercial gives the follow
ing report:
Gov. Johnson took the stand, just to thank
the audience for the warm and cordial invi
tation they had extended to him in urging
his attendance and calling fora speech; but
he bad no iutention of making one.
However, Uis Excellency greatly interest
ed his large and attentive auditory for more
than an hour. Ho termed it a mere over
flowing of his gratitude to the meeting for
the attention bestowed and the honors in
tended, but the audience accepted the thank
offering as a very excellent•speech.
In a sentence or two he scattered, to the
winds the idea that slavery was necessary to
the production of • cotton. He had picked
cottott in the cotton-field near Raleigh, North
Carolina ; and he could pick more cotton
than any black boy it: the field. It is only
neeesdhry to cut up Alabama and Mississip
pi into moderate sized farms, fur industrious
men to cultiVate With their Oivn - lialiae,. and
'There would not only be an increase of the
cotton crop, but the production also of all
the bread and meat necessary for those States.

and important truths on the aristocracy of
wealtt family, and position. He was in fa—
vor of an aristocracy of labor ; of '
He excaciated on the resources of Tennes
see—her soil and climate,, : her mines, m,iner
ale and timbers. lie invited men of indus
try and economy to comae and settle among,
them and develop her treasures.
To the question, "A hat is to be done with
the negro'?" he uttered an important. apho
rism worthy a stereotyped position in every
newspaper in the land : "In the pursuit of a
correct principle you can never come to a
wrong conclusion . ' He left his audience to
make the application, simply adding that the
"Slavery question will 'adjust itself, if we
pursue the principles of truth and right:"
No government cat exist that has an in
stitution within it more potent than the gov
eminent itself.. 'H.Slavery is in the way of
the harmonious working of the government,

The weakness and irritation resulting from my

and events since have but deepened it. Those,
if such there be, who insist on peace before

commit a fearful error; they practically de
eare that the United Statp was wrong in
the commencement of the war, and is wrong
in continuing it, and by irresistible inference,

The Recent Elections.
Grand Union Victories
The elections in this Stale, yesterday, re
sulted in a glorious Union triumph. The mgt.
jority for the Union State ticket is probably
over forty thousand, while the Legislature has
a large Union majority in both branches, and
the Democratic majority in this city is re
duced to less than twenty thousand. In
Brooklyn, Col. Alfred M. Wood (Union) is
elected by two thousand plurality.
The State Legislature will probably stand
about as follows :—Senate, twenty• three Union
and nine Opposition ; Assembly, eighty four
Union and forty four Opposition.
The Unionists have made handsome gains
in the neighboring State of New Jersey on
thii popular vote, enough, indeed, to carry
the State on the aggregate poll. They have
also gained largely in the Legislature, where
last year the copperheads had a sweeping
majority in both houses. The Lion. James
M. Sciivel, the Union candipaie for Senator
in Camden county, is elected by 109 major
ity—a triumph over which the friends of the
Union have reason to rejoice, in v.ew of the
efforts made to defeat him.

your readers will not charge the republican

Unjust Arrest and Imprisonment
At a meeting of Pennsylvanians hold in
Washington on the 'frith ult., to consider tho
circutustances attending the recent arrest
and imprisonment of J. A. 81'ILLIA.nsios, of
the Pennsylvania Relief Association, the fol
lowing report Was made, adopted, and or
dered to he published in the newspapers of
this city Lind Pennsylvania
,Yo. 487 Eleventh street,
Washington, October 28, 1863.
To the Chairman and Members of the Execu
tive Committee of (he Pennsylvania Soldiers
Relief Association:
GENTLEstEN : The committee appointed by
your body to report the facts attendant up
on the recent arrest and imprisonment of
Joseph A. Williamson, Esq., under order of
Major' Turner and by Col. Baker, Provost
Marshal of the War Department, and his
subsequent release, represent as follows:
That Mr. Williamson is and has been one
of the most active members of the Pennsyl
vania Relief Association, and is a member of
its Executive Committee. During the past
year he has been constant and faithful in
Om discharge of alt his duties, and has ren
dered most valuable and important service,
us well in hospital as in the field. About
three weeks ago it became necessary to re
move the stores of the Association from the
Patent Office building to the rooms now oc
cupied by it; and the question arose as to
the expediency of selling some surplus rags,
lint, and other unavailable material which
could not be conveniently' kept in store.
After consideration it was determined to
sell a certain proportion, as is the custom of
this and other like associations, of these
goods, of which three hundred bushels are
yet left, thereby enabling the Executive
Committee to keep on hand n small fund
sacred to the purpose of purchasing abso
lute necessaries for the daily wants of our
sick and wounded soldiers, The order of
sale was given by the chairman of the above
named committee, and under the general di
rection of Mr. Williamson, the assistant
store-keeper, Mr. Hutchinson, in the pres
ence of Dr. Houston, another member of the
Executive Committee, opened, weighed, and'
packed ,the material, and transferred it'to
Francis A. Bogert, a regular dealer of Phil
adelphia, who had made a previous purchase
of the same character of goods from the As
R. M. 8
The lot, as reported by Mr. Hutchinson
weighed 1,068 lbs., for which M. Bogart
paid the sum of $84.45 1 which .ivas promptly
deposited - by Mr. Williamson in the bank
ing house of JaY.Cooke & Co. to tho'credit
of the' Association. The proof of deposit
was .at once subinitted to the chairman of
the ExecutiveQ'ommittee, thus concluding
his responsibility. This took plate Hetober
10th and 12th.
On the morning of the 23d inst., Mr..Wil
liamsen was arrested, while at his: desk in.
_the Interior. Department, by a' detective of
Col. Baker, and'was taken'to the °film of
the latter, without the remotest idea that
any charge had,been preferred against him.
After waiting about an hour, Major Levi C.
Turner, Judge Advocate, and Col. Baker,
Provost Marshal of the War Department, en•! .
tered the room, and a short conversation
ensued, which it May not now he important
to detail. The sum of it was that Mr. Wil
liamson was informed that he was charged
with selling Government stores and pocket
ing the money, and that he was to be sent
to the Old Capitol prison. Mr. Williamson
vehemently protested his innocence, and ap
pealed for an opportunity to explain the
transaction, and send for parties of the high-,
est respectibility who could establish his in
nocence; Col. Baker replied that he should
" see no one." Mr. Williamson asked to be
allowed to remain in Col. Baker's office un
til he could send for SecretarY , Usher, of the
Interior Department, or Mi. Brady, the chair
man of the Bxecntive Committee of the As
sociation. Col. Baker denied his prisoner
this privilege, and, telling him that he could
write letters when he reached the Old Cap
itol, and handing his cotnmitment Wan offl- ,
err, left the room,
One of the officials, a witness of this in
justice and cruelty to a man as innocent as
any of his accusers, and more innocent than
some whose presence he was obliged to tol
erate, furnished Mr. Williamson with a desk
before his removal to the old Capital, and
offered to deliver letters to Mr, Usher or Mr,
About one o'clock on that day, the 23d
inst., lie reached the Old Capital, was taken
to his cell, and, its key 'mimed upon him,
his incarceration was acromOished,
Immediately upon hearing of the circum
stance, Judge Usher,. Secretary of the Inte
rior, in whose Department s Mr, Williamson
is a trusted clerk, and suliScquently Messrs.
Brady and Eaton of the Executive Committee
with other Pcansylvanians,called upon Major
Turner at his house, and were in alew
utes enabled to make the explanation the
opportunity for which had already been de
nied the helpless prisoner. The result of
this interview was that Mr. Williamson was
released about 45 P. M. the same day of
his arrest, Major Turner being fully satiefred
of hitt entice ittnocentre,

make in concluding tlais• statement,
