will figure in history as one among tho
most pntriotio and influential of loyal
Govornors. Ho has been tried and found
equal to tho emergency. The people
appreciate his efficient and invaluaulo
s,crvioos to tho State and Nation, and
will re-elect him. 1

most excellent man, and will receive the

Washington, July 30, 18G3.
It is tho duty of every government to
give protection to its citizens, of what
ever class, color or condition, and espe
cially thoso who are duly organized as
soldiers in the public service. Tho law
of nations and tho usages and customs
of war, as carried on by civilized powers,
permit no distinction as to color in the
treatment of prisoners of war as public
enemies. To sell or enslave any captur
ed per on, on aocount of h:s color, and
for no off njc a,;a;nst tho 1 iwi of war, is
a relapse info barbarism and n crimo
against the civilization of the ago. The
Government of tho United States will
givo tho same proto.'tion to all its sol
diers, and if the enemy shall sell or en
tlave any oiu b:o mo of hisoolor, tho
offence ih d! bj punished by retaliation
upon the enemy's piso.iirj in o ir po
session. It is thoiifcro ordeiel that for
every soldier of the United States killed
in violation of tho laws cf war, a rebel
soldier shall bo executed i and for every
ono enslaved by tho enemy or sold into
slavery, a rebel soldier shall be placed at
hard labor on the publio works, and con

The loyal men of Pennsylvania, in
Convention assembled, disulaimiug all
partizanship, and knowing no oauso but
that of the country, declare for them
selves and their constituents,
1st Their inflexible purpose to main
tain, by every necessary offort, service
and sacrifice, tho National Union, as the
first, the highest, the most solemn and
tho most overshadowing of a'l political
2d. That the rebellion which threatens
the existence of the Union was without
cause, was conceived in wickedness, or
ganized in perjury, and developed by
reckless viohu jc, is stained with every
crime, and detestible in means, and in
ternal in purpose, must bo suppressed
by tho penplu'of the United States, at
the destruction of whose liberties and
the overthrow of whole frco institutions
it is impiously aimed.
3d. That in tho momentous contest
now waging there are, and can bo but
two parties, viz : the one which firmly
sustains the constituted authorities ot the
nation in enforcing all the laws thereof,
and in protecting tho principles upon
which the Kovernnient rests, and is,
therefore, nt once the party of law, of
liberty, and ot patriotism ; tho other
which cripples tho constituted authori
ties of the nation iu enforcing tho laws,
securing the safety ami preserving tho
life of the nation, and is, therefore, tho
parent of mobs, the enemy of order and
n participant of treason, a class whoso
detestible practices jiot only givo "aid
and comfort" to the coihmon enemy,
but as confessed iu Richmond, light up
these clays of rebel darkness and disas
ter, and actually stimulate them to re
newed and desperate efforts to recruit
their armies, and to whom is this day
justly chargeable whatever of vitality tho
rebellion possesses, and whatever of ca
lamity or affliction the further protraction
of the contest may involve. But tor
Northern sympathizers, and the hopes
their treasonable cxiatatico inspired, tho
rebellion would have sunk undo'1 the
staggering blows dealt it at Gettysburg,
Vicksburg and Port Hudson.
4th. That wholly without sympathy
for tho men who have mado this war
against a free ltepuhlicnn Government,
or'for the system of human bondage, in
whoso interest it was instigated or the
cause of despotic principles to which it
is now devoted, this Convention declares
nil cniingea therein, while so engaged, to
be worthy only of our patriotic hate ;
and in like spirit wo denounce as doubly
recreant, and base these residents of
the loyal States who tolerate this treason,
wj ild ufli iate with armed traitors, and
again smreuder our government and
liberties to their keeping.
oth. That Abraham Lincoln, tho
President of thu United States, by his
discharge of his most onerous duties in
these dark days of .civil war has won
for himself the affections and regard
of the American people, and always
healing himself clear in his high of
fice, has maintained tho integrity of

by tho effective support he has given the

OUR ARMY CORRESPONDENCE. 1
Is Camp nkar IIicmiKviM.R, .,
Berkly County, Va., July i8, 63.-1 -T
Vmv RffiuiUuii : Alter a long silence
o.i my part, I again take up my pen, to
let you know where we are, and what
wo have been lining tor some time past.
Thinking perhaps that some of your rea
ders would be interested in our move
ments, Sn l also in the welfiru of tho
brave hoys of our euiiini nel. I well
kno.v tlni light in which letters from tho
army are viewed by some of our noble
friends at homo ; bat waiving all this, I
write, consilium of ihe truthfulness ot all
I utter. Responsible myself for nil I
say, and caring not a tig for anything
that may be said to the contrary by those
who know nothing of what I write.
To give a description of everything
that lias transpired since we left camp at
rQW Ureek, would require more tuno
and space than I can oonsumo at present,
therefore 1 will but give a brief synopsis:
We left camp on tho 4 th of July, that
day rendered sacred to every true Amer
ican ho irt by the snore I reio' lection s
thatcluster,aud shall ever cluster, around
it. We proceeded to Cumberland, where
tho boys all received a plentiful supply
of green backs trom the hands . ot that
ever welcome visitor, tho Paymaster.
On tho Cth, wo proceeded on tho Nation
al road to Hancock, where we arrived
on the evening of the 7th. It was at
this time that Meade was contending
with tho legions of Lee, who had rashly
dared to invade tho sacred soil ot the
'Old Keystone,' and was striving to plant
the trait.irs Hag within her precincts. It
was with great anxiety that we moved
forward, hoping to sharo in tho strife,
and assist in annihilating tho rebel host.
How wo were disappointed, dud why,
wo leave for thu historian's pen to tell.
Wo lay a few days at Hanover, until tho
troops wero rested, and theu moved on
to Fuirview, in tho vicinity of tho beau
tiful village of Clear Spring. Here we
could hear tho roar of the camion ot the
two contending armies, nnd even the
rattle of tho musketry, and from the top
of the mountain could bo seen tho dash
of the murderous guns. I will not at
tempt to describa tho anxiety with which
our men wished to be led to the conflict.
Wo wero confident that the enemy oould
not escape, as the bridges had all been
destroyed, and tho river was too full, as
we fondly hoped, to be forded ; but in
this we were disappointed, fjr when wo
did move, nnd camo near to Williams
port -we found no enemy to fight. But
to our chagrin and disappointment, wo
found our wary foe had escaped acro is
the river, and were safe in dixie. We
then immediately moved back to Cherry
Hun Ford, where wo crossed tho river,
i and proceeded to the plice we now occu
I py. Hero wo remained for a few days,
scouting the country for miles around,
and taking several prisoners, skirmish
ing with the enemy's pickets, &o.
On the evening of tho 2 Ith, wo were
forced to tall back to Maryland on dou
ble quick, as tho enemy was alvnncing.
We thought this a strange way ot do
ing, as we had came out to fight, and re
treat did not go well with thoso who
had never beforo experienced it. But
wo found we hail been none too sudden
in our flight, for in less than tour h urs
utter n-e left,- twenty two tnoiisand rebels
under Gen's. Ewell and Early, advanced
on two different roads, and arrived on
tho very ground which wo. had left
Gen. Kelly, I think,- deserves great
praise for this timely movement, and it
is given to him lavishly by both officers
and men. We stayed in Maryland but
a very few days, when we again returned
to our old camp, where we now are enjoy
ing ourselves as best wo can iu an open
field, with nothing but rudely construct
ed bunks to shelter us from the wind and
rain. But. notwithstanding all this, our
boys are iu tho best of spirits, and the
health of our company is very good con
sidering tho hard duty wo nave been
forced to perform for tho last few months.
They are all willing and anxious to be
led against tho foe, nnd I well know that
when tho chance occurs, our boys will
give a good account of themselves.
But during all our wanderings, altho'
we did not get into a genera! entragj
ment, with the Ciiomy, we would nofiiavo
you imagine that our cavalry did noth
ing at all. While nt Hancock, the
Washington Cavalry, under tlieir intrep
id leader, Capt. A. J. Greenfield, mado
a successful rcconnoissance, capturing
19 prisoners, H wagons, and about 40
horses. These, too he captured from a
vastly superior force, charging them
with the sabro in the most gallant stylo,
killing several of the enemy, and woun
ding a great many. His own loss was
two wounded, but not seriously. Great
honor is duo tho noble Captain and his
niep for tlieir heroic conduct -Captain
Greenfield has commanded our cavalry
since wo left camp, and a more bravo
and gentlemanly officer than ho the ser
vice does not afford. Ho has the love
and esteem of nil the men under him,
and ho shows himself well qualified for
any position however high in military
life. Lieut. Hart, of the Ilinggold Cav
alry, was attaaked by a vastly superior
force while on a rcconnoissance near
Williamsport. Though two or thieo
times he was almost entirely surrounded,
ho cut his way through them by a suc
cession of brilliant dashes, holding them

or 50 strong, capturing 17 of them with
their horses nnd arms, charging thorn to

A great many deserters hro comma:
into our linos daily, and the woeful talus
they tell us, givo us nn insight into the
situation of affairs in rebeldom. They
all say that the raid into Pennsylvania
was one of necessity, as thoy havo boon
on half rations for months, and some
times they do not even get that. They
mo deluded by, thoir olllyors, nnd incited
to fight oven against hope: for instance,
one of tho prisoners we took, said that
the day beforo ho was captured an order
was rend to their regiment contradicting
the fall of iiksbnrg Also that they
were not defeated in Pennsylvania, but
full back to guard tlieir wagon trains.
Tho people here tell us (and they are
good, sound Union people,) that tho
ones that came to our camp here after
we left, would pick up nnd eat pieces of
hard tack that ha I been trampled under
foot by our boys i ami one woman sitil
she saw one ot them scrape pieces of

I know not where wo will go, or when
wo will move from here: but everything
indicates a movement of some kind in a

A word more, and then I close. I
got a letter a few days ago from a friend
asking me what tho soldiers think of tho
copperheads. I thought Leo's raid into
Pennsylvania had killed Copperheadisin,
but if it lias not, if there is still ono man
breathing the free air of tho "Old Key
stone," who still deserves that name, let
ine say to him that ho is an enemy to tho
soldier, and tlm soldier bates him with a
moro bitter hatred than he docs his open
enemy in tho South. I havo heard hun
dreds of soldiers say that they would
rather shoot a copperhead than a sccesh.
But I will forbear, for so vile a thing is
not worth the comment. And their day
is not far distant, yea, the time is hasten
ing when thoy will wish they had never

All Working Well at Charleston

a some may wish. All things are work
ing well. W know that anxiety is felt
in Charleston for tho safty ot the city.
Last week there wero hanging from tho
parapet oi o.niuer us a protection to ine
walls, linos of cotton balos. It told us
plainly that fifteen inoh shot wre equal
to its destruction, but the ooton bales
aio now gone, sot on firo ns thoy were
by their own enns. Thoy wore obliged
to tako them down, and are now piled
into so orchod heads behind the Fort.
Everything betokens a tearfulness on tho
