Geze: JOHN A. Dix.—This gentleman
has been pressed to run for Governor of
New. York. He declines being a can
didate in , the following patriotic lan
guage : "My name, I see, is again used
in .connection with a political office,
without my knowledge or consent. I
shall remain at my post, doing all I can
to sustain the Government, in putting
down the rebellion ; and at a moment
when the existence of the nation is
hanging by a thread, I cannot leave my
" duties here to be drawn into any party
strife. Neither will I 'ever assent to
any adjustment of the contest with the
insurgent States which shall acknowl
edge their success.
The rebellion began in fraud, dishon
or, 'and violence, and must end in sub
mission to the Constitution and the
laws. The Secession leaders have put
the contest on grounds which would
make success on their part indelible dis
grace to us.
In my sphere of duty my intention is
to carry-on the war without either vio
lence to the Constitution or to the prin
ciples of justice and humanity, and to
contend to the last to avert a triumph
over all that is stable in government, or
honorable to political companionship.
'My whole course through life has
proved my devotion to Democracy and
conservative principles. No assurance
should be needed that this faith is un
changed. But at a moment like this,
unless all parties will rally round the
Government in putting down this rebel
, lion, leaving questions among them
selves to be settled when the national
honor is vindicated, and our existence
as a nation secured, there can be nothing
for us in the future but disaster and dis
grace. Jona A. Dix.
per month, of the militia volunteers in
the service of the State is the same as
that of volunteers in the service of the
United States, as follows : Colonel;

$179 ; Captain, $l2O 50 ; First Lieuten
ant, $llO 50 ; Second Lieutenant, $lO5
50; Bre - vet Second Lieutenant, $lO5 50;
Privates, $l3. The pay in case of inva

from daring riot, tumult, bre ►ch of the

to aid the civil process. In such emer

privates receive $l. 50 per diem each,
and commissioned officers the same com

. Tua NATIONAL DEBT—The reprcienta
tions made in some quarters that the
public debt has reached two thousand
millions, is a gross exaggeration. On
the Bret day of the present month it was
only six hundred and twenty millions,
and it is now less than six hundred and
sixty millions. This amount includes
the entire circulation and every species
of rotes, and between seventy and
eighty millions of the debt of the late
administration, but excepts the claims,
for which no requisitions have as yet
been made. The claims adjusted and
unadjusted, cannot exceed twenty mil

HARRISBURG, October 24,'1862
In consequerice of this publication,
General Wool telegraphed to have the
Reverend gentleman arrested and sent
to Baltimore under guard. In a sharp
article on this subject, the Telegraph
says : "The Rev. Dr. had been engaged
to perform the funeral services of one.of
our oldest and most respectable ladies,
Mrs. Judge Hummel, on Tuesday morn

Mr. William M. Kerr, president of the
Harrisburg Bank, and son-in-law of the
deceased, that he would be unable to
attend, and that he was held a prisoner.
Mr: Kerr, who is well known to every
man in this city as one of the most up
right and loyal men in the country, made
an attempt to have an interview with
Dr. Hay, but ho was not permitted to
see him, nor wonld'the guard accompa

conversation. After the Doctor's arri

into the Headquarters of General Wool.
After waiting some time, the General
appeared, seemingly very much excited,
and after examining several papers ly
ing on his table, he accused Dr. Hay
with being the writer of different . arti
cles published in the Baltimore Ameri
can, remarking at the same time that
"they were all a pack of lies." Dr. Hay
denied hairing ever written anything for
that paper, but, handing the above let

was prepared to prove all he there said.
