" As THE OLD COCK CROWS THE YOUNG
ONES LEARN." —BiIIy Button's worthy exam
ple in printing bogus enrollment lists, was
strictly followed ,by the young billies, at hit
office, in their printing bogus admission Tick
ets to the Musical Convention, held at this
place last week. Considering the fact that
the printers and their families, were very
liberally furnished with tickets to the associ
ation by its officers, this base attempt at im
position and fraud, will be considered sligh
tually mean by everybody, except the old
foul who justifies such practices, and his
young bantlings who were to profit by fol
lowing his example. Like him they were
detected and exposed in their rascality.
'•Worthy sons of a worthy sire !"
Billy and The Bogus Enrollment again.
We were told in the last weeks Republica <
in relation to the bogus enrollment list in
Nicholson, that Billy the Editor, had ''de
nied the charge explicitly and challenged"
us "to produce the proof." We do not know
when, where or how he has denied or dis
proved the truth of a single statement made
by us in our expose of the affair.
He says he "challenges investigation," We
have investigated the matter' and published
the result. And we are ready at anv time,
to produce the affidavits of respectable and
credible witness to prove the truth of every
material allegation made by us. We have
dared the sneaking pimp of an Editor to deny
that he printed the list for Nicholson, with
the five names mentioned by us, interpolated.
We can prove that he did, not only by a
comparison of U. with the genuine (both of
which we have at hand, and will exhibit at
any when called on)but, by his own
confession, made in an unguarded moment.
We think we can establish another fact in
relation to this enrollment, to wit; that men
were induced to pay money, to other men—
professing to act by authority, for the pur
pose of having their names left out of the or
This system of peculation and extortion
was not, if we have been correctly informed,
confined to Nicholson Township alone, but
was practiced in other districts in this
Trifling with the money and lives of men,
may be thought a very innocent amusement
bythis ''Loyal" Edtior, and would-be-peda
gogue. But, we cfcn see but little difference
in the guilt of the man who puts his neigh
bor's life, or property injeopardv, by a trick,
or fraud; and him who does it by a deadly
weapon, on the highway. One method re
quires a little, low, cunning; the other some
courage. The bump of cunning predominates
in all draft sneaks. "

To night, Mr. Editor, the soul of the old
! Bell Ringer is sad. He looks out on the
j sleeping world, and beholds it, shrouded in
darkness and mourning,
i A gale sweeps from the North, bearing on
its wings, animosity, hatred, curses jit meet,
the gentle, floating breeze from the South
and hurls it back scattering death and deso
lation over its plaius of flaming flowers. The
angel of light and life, seems to hare winged
' its flight from our once beautiful, but now
blighted country, and the fiend of War, and
devastation teigns instead ; and as the en
chantiug strains of the sweet singing seraph
passed away to the throDe of Eternal God,
there arose the demoniacal shriek of War!
On with unrighteous, unholy war until one
half cf the great nation is blotted from the
page of mortality.
Tbe torch, and subjection are taken up in
chorus, and echoes throughout the inilhoned
tounged North, and heart 6 once filled with
kindness and mercy, are transformed into
jeceptacles of malignity and persecution.
Fanaticism rules : abolitionism has supplant
ed the conciliatory peace principle*, of the
founders of our government, and the great
heart of the N.rth, once generous and com
placent, is transformed into a wild, infuriated '
beast, only to be satisfied by blood and deso- j
The rising smoke from the burning city, i
and hamlet, the wail of the widow and oiphan, '
the onset of battle, the mad fury of contend
ing hosts, the shrieks of the mangled and dy
ing constitute a scene, that would cause
devils to shudder, but is prowlers to turn the
so called Northern christian soul, to the
practice of christian precepts.
Is there not sufficieut morality, are there
not enough, who believe in the great truths
ofaju-.t God, to stay the ravages of that
fienoish, malignant crew, who are hurling
our beloved country from its once proud
position, into the depths of misery and we ?
If so, let them arise in the majesty of their
might, and hurl the reckless fanatics, to that
destruction, designed for the workers of
iniquity ; if not, then let us cravenly submit
to the tyrant's behest, and smile as we are
crushed beneath ttie falling ruins of our coun
Ah, Mr. Editor, the soul of the old roan
weeps at the misery and impending destruc
tion of his countrymen.
But let us turn from the story of greater |
calamities, to that of lesser, from the story
of national indignities, to that of individual I
Sympathy for the injured, and forgivne-s
to the erring, are among the brightest flow
ers that blossom in the soul; they are the
radiations of that benev deuce which the good
God has implanted into our being, as a sign
that we are His, and cf Him.

separates Trinity church yard, froiq crowded,

commemoration of those whom the cruelty
of English Tyrrany, consigned to a terrible,
lingering death, lies imbedded, even wilh the
ground, a piece of granite, in dimensions,
those of an ordinary grave, and bearing the
simple inscription, Charlotte Temple.
Poor Charlotte ! who has not read her
brief aud mortal career ; more sinned against
than sinning ; much of the cold, proud, world,
will frown and scorn at the mention of her
name, yet, far more erring tfian she. Their
imperfections, are concealed ; hers, are-spread
throughout the universe ; there is the differ
ence ; crime unrcvealed, is a virtue, but ex
posed is a sin, an.l those in secret guilt are
the first to cry, crucify ! crucify !
But all are human, and subject to the pas
sions and emotions, incident to that estate ;
none are perfect; therefore let all ft-rgive, as
they would be forgiven.
The-deceived, and greatly wronged Char
lotte, possessed a heart of warmth, and a soul
as pure as the incense of virtue. She loved
with excessive wild-nes, but surely, that was
She fell by the base treachery, and f.rce of
afoul, but brilliant deceiver; ihat was the
frailty, tbe imperfection of humanity. She
was woman, and possased woman's confidence,
censure not her; but pause a. the side of her
modest, huuible grave, and bedew it with
a kindly tear, as many have d>>ue, breathe a
prayer that others, virgins, beautiful and
pure, may not meet her fate, and, if the heart
be generous enough, pray for the forgivness
of her destroyer. Blame not Charlottte,
disturb not her repose, let her sleep her lung,
Busy, thoughtless, throngs, pass her by,
the curious and the sincere, together, seek
her resting place, the great pulse of the city,
throbs and beats at the gates of her grave,
but she heeds them not, the body that was
corrupt, has put on incorruptability, and the
soul has left us earthly tenement, and dwells,
ft siar, bright and shiniug, in the firmament
TRINITY BELL RINGER.
A DISI.OTAI. COMMISSJOENR. —Jacob Buch
er, tine of the Commissioner of Lebanon
county, resigned his office o.i Monday last,
lie was violently opposed to the appropria
tion ol any money by he county tor bounties
to avoid the draft, and when he fuund that
his two associate Commissioners were deter
miued to vote the bounties and make a loan
of S>loo,ooo for their payment, he repudiated
all connexion with the transaction by resign
ing Mr. Jacob Brubaker was appointed in
his place. As Lebanon is a stricly "loyal"
county, and Mr Bucher a "loyj" Ab..litiJiiiat
in his politics, his stubborn resistance to the
military necessities of the Government can
not be charged to that monstrous crime of the
day, which the Siuiou Pule loyalists call
BOUNTY TO NINE MONTHS MEN The
House st Washington passed a joint resolution
on Thursday providing for the pay i.ent ol

Escape of Union Officera front the Libby
j One hundred and nine Union officers sue.
i ceeded in making their escape from the Lib
j by Prison, in Richmond, on the 10th inst—
Twenty-one of them were unfortunately re
; taken on the 11th, but the remainder, it is
! hoped and believed, are safe within the Uaion
lines. Twenty six of the escaped officers
reached Washiugton on Wednesday evening,
and others are daily coming in.
Among the names of the escaped are sev
| eral Pennsylvania Colonels, Captains and
| Lieutenants, but none that we recognize as j
I from Reading.
The following interesting account of the |
| manner in which these brave unfortunates (
gained their libeity, as a Richmond journal j
says, "without fie preliminaries of parole or 1
exchange," is from the papers of Thursday :
BALTIMORE, Wednesday, Feb. 17, 1864
The escaped Union officers reached here
this morning and go to Washington this
Ttie account of their escape is full of thrill
ing interest, but for prudential reasons many
particulars are withheld from publication at
Libby Piison is divided into three prand di
Visions, known as the Eastern, Western and !
Central Rooms. About the middle of Dec j
ember, eight of the more hopeful officers <
commenced an excavation on the side of the :
basement of the middle apartment, which
was ocupied as a dining room.
They were fifty-one days making a tunnel.
Having managed to find access to the cellar,
they commenced work, relieving one another '
as opportunity ofl'tred.
Thair instruments were case knives, pock
et knives, chi-els and files. Twice they had
to abandon their wotk and commence anew
on account of the obstruct ons which they
could not pass. They had hoped to have
availed themselves of a culvert, but found it
After getting through the wall they dis
posed of the excavated soil by drawing It out
•u a spittoon, which they attached to a
This would be filled by tbe party at work
in the tunnel, and pulled out into the cellar
by 'heir companions who disposed of it by
spreading it in shallow layers ov*r the floor,
concealing it beneath the 6traw. The work
was necessarily very slow. So close was the
atmosphere in the tunnel that they could re
main in it but a few minutes at a time, and
their candles would go out. At one time
they got so near the head of the streat that a
smali hole about the size of a 6tove pipe
broke through, but fortunately that was not
discovered by the guard, and was a great
service, admitting air, and enabling them to
prosecute their work mare rapidly. The
tunnel, when completed, was about 50 feet
long, and opened into an old tobacco shed
beyond the line of guards. As soon as they
found the way clear, they emerged slowly in
small squads of two or three, and sauntered
off until thev got clear of the guards, making
their way toward the Williamsburg road by
the shortest route.s
The darkness favored them, and the fact j
that all Ihe Rebel soldiers whom they met i
were habited in the army coals of'"Uncle Sam |
which they had stolen from the supplies sent
to oui prisoners by our government, was of
grew', help to them.
Although they were attired in our army
overcoats, and many of them had their haver
sacks, they found the National uniform a bet*
ter disguise than if they had been provided
with the genuine Rebel uniforms.
In order to elude the pursuers who they
knew would soon be on their track, they
scattered as much as possible. Many wera
their hardships and sufferings, and frequent
were their narrow escapes from the Rebel
cavalry, who the next morning were bush
whacking in every direction for them.
The jov which they experienced when they
first came in sight of our troops sent out to
help them and protect thera from their pur
suers cannot be expressed.
To tie officers and men of the 11th Penn
sylvania Cavalry, hom they first met, they
express most profound gratitude for their un
bounded kindness, and also bear testimony
to the gallantry with which these gallant fel
lows pursued the Rebel cavalry, and rescued
many of the warworn fugitives who other
wise would have been captured.
It is believed that more then half of those
who got out of the prison will reach our lines.
The officers who are now in here were from
five to eight days in getting from Richmond
to Williamsburg, and think that many more
will follow successfully down the Peninsula,
that some will escape via the Artny of the
Potomac, and that others will eventually be
heard Irotn in North Corolina.

THE TREASON WITH WHICH
Mr VA&LANDIGHAM WAS
We often hear the bitter Republicans
speak of Mr. Vallandigham as a convicted
traitor. Now we propose to turn back to

| and see tho kind of treason he committed
| We want to Know of what species of ofience
he was accused or convicted. Here it is :
Mr. Vallandigham was invited by the De
mocracy of Knox and Franklin Counties to
address them upon the political of the question
day. He accepted the invitation, and in his
speeches, among other things, said, according
to the report of the Government spy, who
took down his words.
"This is a wicked and unnecessary war. a
war for the freedom of the blacks and en
slavement of the whites."
" If the Administration had so wished, the
war could have been honorably terminated
months ago. Peace might have been honora
bly obtained by listening to the proposed
meditations of France."
" Propositions by which the Southern !
States could be won bick, and the South j
guaranteed their rights under the Constiu- !
tion, had been rejected the day before the I

establish a despotism in this country more
cruel and oppressive than ever existed "
There, reader, you have from the official
report of the trial all was charged by the
Government and mtiiiary au'horities against
hitn. For saying these things in a public
speech, in which he was discussing as a citi
zens the aflairs of the Government, he was
sent into exile and banishment, torn from his
family and friends, and cruelly punished.
This is alijthe " treason'' of which he was
ever guilty. It would lie a good idea to cut
out this copy of these charges against Mr.
Vallandighain to keep as a memento of what,
in Republican estimation, i s treason, and of
the degree of liberty that under it we are
The Re. Enlisted Veterans.
The following letter from the office of the
Provost Marsha! General at Washington'
would seem to settle the question as to whe
ther the veteran soldiers who have re-enlisted
can be credited against the next draft to the
districts in which they claim residence, and
thus entitle themselves to the local bounties
that are being paid to avoid the draft. The
ground taken by this letter is, that the vet
erans enlisted in the field, by virtue of the
Government bounty alone, and without ref
erence to the local bounties ; arid, having
been uiusiered into the service before their
return home on furlough, and credited to the
aggregate number*of men required to be
raised by draft' cannot be credited a second
time to a particular district :
