Assizes THE SOLDIESCI mud care
has been taken to secure to our , soldiers
the right of voting, that it is now im=
portant:the' whole should not be list "by
any neglect or carelessness on our part.
Let it be remembered' that no soldier
can vote unless he has been assessed'at
home and'his tax paid within two years.
A great many whthaVe the same right
to vote that we enjoy are liable to lose
that right' if their friends do not charge
themselves with the d'uty of seeing that
their . names are assessed by or before
Friday, the thirtieth of Septeinber.
Let this fact remembered and acted
upon. ; Let every men who knows of an
absent soldier see that his name is as
sessed, and seer that it is done within
the right time.. Thousands of votes will
be saved by this course.

one of her foremost lawyers and the
acknowledged leader of the more intel
lectual of her two great political. parties
—conspicuous in her Legislature, her
only Whig member of Congress, Whig
candidate for Senatorial Elector, U. S.
Senator, Vice-President, and ultimately
for President. All these positions were
accorded to him without contest or hes.
itation. When the great political
struggles of 1840 and 1844 were made,
none other than he was , suggested to
lead in the canvass. When, for the
first time, his political friends had a ma
jority in the Illinois Legislature, no
other was thought of by the mass of
them for United States Senator, though
it was finally found necessary, in order
to secure the requisite anti-ebraska
Democratic votes, to withdraw him and
substituta another. At Philadelphia, in
1856, his name, and only his, was pre.
Betted for Vice President by the dele
gation from Illinois; and when a can
didate was to be pitted against Douglas
for the Senatorial canvass of 1858, no
other name was even suggested than
that of Abraham Lincoln. So in 1860
there was abundant competition as to
which State should furnish the Republi
can nominee for President ; but no one
ever suggested that among the eminent
and honored Repnbiicans of Illiuoi
there was another possible candidate
than Lincoln.--Tribune. •

fir The members of the Pennsylvania
Legislature are allowed $7OO salary for
the regular session, and $3 per day for
extra sessions; but just before adjourn
ment they appropriated themselves
three hundred for their , services during
the extra session. They met on the 9th
and adjourned on the 25th ult., making
a session of seventeen days, including
the days of meeting and adjournment
and Sundays. For this their lawful pay
would have been $5l; but, they coolly
appropriate to themselves $3OO, or
$17.65 per day, with mileage. The vote
upon the appropriation was viva voce,
and it is therefore impossible to say whO
were its friends and who its opponents.
Major General McCall, an old
soldier and a steady Democrat of many
years' standing, as= well as the Demo-
cratio candidate for Congress in the
Chester district in 1862, is now opposed
to the election of George B. McClellan
to the Presidency. This veteran now
takes ground against the`nominee of the
Chicago Convention, for reasons of Mo-
Clellan's personal unfitness and his utter
perfidy in accepting a nomination at the
hands of men who ignore the justice of
the struggle to crush treason, and treat
the valor' of our brave defenders as a
mere exhibition of the brute force. of
ruthless invaders. rhese are arguments
sufficient to turn every soldier in disgust
from McClellan.L—Harrisburg Telegraph.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN A REPROENTATIVE
MAN.—Tbe Springfield Republican
prints a glowing eulogy upon the life
and course of President Lincoln, from
which we take the following : "People
may say what they will of the President,
they cannot possibly put their hand
upon or point to any other man in the
Republic who represents to the people,.
north and south of Mason's and Dixon's
line, and to the whole civilized world,
so much of the honest loyalty and the
real democratic principle of the country
as Abraham Lincoln. He stands out
from all the men of his section and his
time—and not alone by reason of his
office—as the representative of the re
publicanism of the republic, the cham
pion of democratic principles, the friend
of the Union and the Constitution, and
the foe of all class privilege and class
domination. Every man, loose from the
bondage of political ambition, and loose
from the greed of power and the love of
slavery, thinks well of Abraham Lincoln,
and casts in his lot with him. Thous
ands of Democrats, converted to free
dom by the war, have, from the moment
of their conversion, become his friends.
His way of saving the country is recog
nized as the only way. A conquered
