CC*TI* PROMISED THE PEO- Lg THAT jr'rHET WOULD RE-ELECT HIM, THE WAR WOULD K* D 1" 30 DAYS AND THERE WOULD RE BO MORI PRATTA-NO. HOLD THKM TO THEIR PROMISES. Prisoners of State. On leaving Washington City some weeks ago In the cars for Baltimore, a gentleman with whom we happened to sit pointed out to us a few seats in front, four ladies, who, he inform ed us, were prisoners of state, They were all dressed iu deep mourning, and seemed very much depressed- One hud accompanying her, a little daughter seven or eight years old. We were informed by another gentleman in the ear who knew them, that their destination was Fort La fayette. We inquired what was tho cause of iheir arrest; and were informed that "they haq friends in tho Southern Confederacy." Thoy were under charge of an officer who, if we re member rightly, wore the shoulder straps of a Major. We do not know what offence they re ally did commit, but the thought struck us that this aduhuirtration are paying a great deal more attention to arresting peaceable citizens, wo men and children, than to the actual labor on hand, namely "crushing the rebellion." If any one had uttered the prophecy three rears ago, that the administration at Washing ton would send its armed servants to arrest and carry to the forts in New York and Boston harbors, men and women who had committed no overt act of treason by "levying war against the United States or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfortand that, too, without due process of law ; the men who now justify all these outrages would have called him a liar a thousand times, and entered into a thou sand highfalutin tirades to prove it- If we were an officer of any rank under this administration, and were sent to arrest and conduct to prison, without dHe process of law, either men or wo . men, we would at once resign our commission; even if we agreed in opinion with those who think this Union can be "re-constructed." If, four years ago, wo had read of similar i treatment to Polish Indies, by officers of tho ' Russian despot, how our blood would ha\ e boil ed with indignation—und with just indignation, i too. Our Abolition opponents have not forgot- S ten bow they felt for Passmore Williamson— j though arrested and imprisoned according to law—neither have they forgotten their indigna tion at the execution of old John Brown, who is now a saint in their church of high treason. Pat, perhaps, the day may come when they will be treated In the same manner as those they now rejoice to see illegally punished. There is noth ing astonishes us so much as the silence, (in re gard to these outrages,) of the very men who howled so fiercely, in 1856, for "free speech, free presses and free niggers." But let a negro 1* illegally arrested any where in the north, and how soon they are ready with their sympathy. We warn those who are now thoughtlessly act ing with these men, that they, too, may some day feel the force of their own teaching. "The price of liberty is eternal vigilance." Hon. A. H. Oof Froth. We publish, this week the remarks of Hon. A 11. Coffroth, in regard to having conscripts examined io their respective county town 3. The amendment offered by hitn on this subject has become part of tho new conscription law. Here after, instead of having to travel to Chambers burg to be examined the conscripts of this coun ty will be examined here. This will not only save the government thousands of dollars but the people who are drafted many thousands be sides. There has been no more useful measures o riginated in congress this session; and the peo ple should not forget the man who not only o riginated but snceccdcd in passing the measure. Hen. Coffroth will be thanked by many a poor fcllow, who would, otherwise, have had to walk all the way from Somerset and Bedford counties to Chambcrsburg, in order to stand an examin ation. Besides this measure will benefit thou sands of others throughout the entire north. SSrllatiog been absent for the last two weeks, vs omitted to notice that Mr. B. F. McNiel, formerly of Philadelphia, has taken control of the Bedford Ihqverer. He has changed the ty pographical arrangements of the office, and his paper is now printed on new type We wish him auooeas in every w\>y except politically, of •ourae- Mr Durbearaw, his predecessor, has opened a law office in this place, and intends practising in the several courts of this county •apllun. A. 11. Coffroth, our representative, in Congress begs us to inform bis friends in Bed ford County, (those who have written to him re cently,) that he was unable to attend to th-ir re-! quests, because of sickness in his family while at Philadelphia. The severe illness of Mrs. Coffroth prevented his presence in Washington for more than a week. She has now nearly re covered, and all his friends will receive prompt itteution i Flag Presentation. A flag presentation will take place at St Ciairsville, on Saturday, the 23d of April. " ,9t - The flag will be presented by the D<w* ,ocra<s Bedford borough to the Democrat o{ St - Clair township. Speeches will be * aa(^e 011 ie occa * sion, and a large deleg=i" on from Bedford will be present. The Democrats of the surround ing townships r* invited to attend in force.— We will ■""ounce next week who will make ti e pre** Btat i° n an d reception speeches. SINGULAR DISAPPEARANCE.—Mr.Charies Pen cyl, of Colerain township, whilst on hi 9 way home from this place, one night, some two weeks ago, missed the road and has not been heard from since. When ha left town he was in com pany with Baltzer Dull, another resident of Cole rain township, but the two separated on the mountain, each contending that the other was in error about tho road. Tha mountain on which Mr. Peneyl is Supposed to have lost his way, has been thoroughly searched, by the peo ple of this town and neighborhood, but no trace of the missing man has yet been discovered. Altogether the disappearance of Mr. Peneyl is of rather a mysterious character. DENTAL SURGERY. —Dr. S. Kimmell, of Holli daysburg, the accomplished dentist, will visit Wood berry, on Monday. 18 th inst., and remain until the following Thursday. We have sever al times spoken in high terms of Dr. Kitnmeirs skill as a dentist, and we have had no reason to change onr opinion on that subject. Wc com mend him to the patronage of the people of Wood berry. TIIE MENGKU HOUSE. —We call tho attention of our readers to the advertisement of this well known and popular hotel. The proprietor, Mr. Isaac Mengel, is one of the few men who "know how to keep a hotel," and his guests never fail to receive the full benefit of his talents as a ca terer for the wants of the public. LECTURE —We understand that tho lecture delivered in the court house, on Tuesday eve ning, sth inst. by the Rev. Thos. Heyden, was very well attended notwithstanding the inclem ency of the weather. We are informed that it was very interesting—being both eloquent and instructive. Wo are sorry to have missed such a rich literary treat. ir friends who send us obituary notices from various parts of the county, should remem ber that, whenever they exceed the ordinary length, our rule is to charge for them at the same rate as other advertising. We are sorry to say that we have neither the space nor the time, to pay the attention to them that their writers might wish. REMOVED. —U. H. AKKRA, Esq., has remov ed his office from the place occupied by him heretofore, to the office previously occupied by Dr. Marbourg, nearly opposito the banking house of Reed & Schell. BEAUFORT, S. C., March 25, 18C4. i DEAR SIR: After a long and stormy passage of five days, on board the transport, "United States," we reached our old camp, on last Wednesday. After spending sixty days in Pennsylvania, we find soldiering to be even a more unpleasant oc cupation than it was before; but withal we are really glad to get back to South Carolina. We find things very much as we left them, except a little excitement about the reb's coming over. They attempted it once, shelled our pickets, but got aground with their flats and gave it up. I was very much surprised to read, since my arrival here, an article in the "Bedford Inqui rer," concerning myself. I supposed that about every body in Bedford knew bow unexpectedly I was compelled to leave for Harrisburg, previ ous to the time I had appointed, thereby leav ing behind me over thirty recruits who had been enlisted by members of my company. I made an arrangement with an individual by the name of Long, to the effect that, as Woodberry town ship was giving a iocal bounty of £2OO, and as I had among my recruits about forty men who were willing to be credited to their own county for that amount, I would bind myself to credit twenlv-four men to Woodberry, provided he would assist Die to recruit my company by fur nishing me with 12 recruits: he was to meet me with the men at Hopewell, or some other station on the B. T. R. R., on Monday, the 20th of February. I sent two of rny men to Wood berry, on the 24th or 25th of February, to as sist getting the 12 men. I received a dis patch from the commanding officer of my regi ment, on Thursday evening, the 25th of Feb ruary, ordering me to bring my men to Ilnrris burg immediately, as they could not be muster ed into service after the 20th. What was Ito do? My men (recruits) were scattered all over the county, and to reach Harrisburg, in time to have them mustered in, I must leave on the fol [ lowing day (Friday, 26th). It was impossible to send word to all, or one-half of them. My two men had not returned from Woodberry, ami it was equally impossible to send word to that i place. Lvcn if I could bavo done so, the men and money could not have been got to Harris burg in time. I went to bed with the belief that I sbouid not have more than tea men to take away the next day, whereas, if I could but remain until Monday, I would hove over fifty. Perhaps if I had remained in Bedford until Monday, and showed the dispatch* (a copy of which I send yon; to the individuals with whom I had made the arrangement referred to, they would have been satisfied, but 1 concludod to go if I oould get but five men together, as they were bettor than none. I was fortunate, orun lortunate, enough, I don't know which, to have more than that number when I started. I took them to Harrisburg, had them mustered in, and in answer to a dispatch, telegraphed to Durhor- TOW* that I had been ordered to Harrisburg on Friday, in order to have my men mustered into service before the 2&t', as that was the lost day. •HARRisrvKo, Feb. 25 lS'l*. To Cajjt. S. S. Afi'U-jer : llscruits cannot Lo mustered later than twenty-ninth (29 h) February. Each can get about two hundred and fifty (250) dollars iocal bounty ; bring them immediately. (Signed) R. WHITE ! t h*t if I had waited to fulfil the arrangement 11 had made with Long, I would not have got a / i recruit muttered. Quite a number of recruits j J ! that I had left behind, eame to Harrisburg, on f i Monday, but I could not get them mustered in- I to our regiment; aome went back home and I others enlisted in other regiments, the reason , ( was, that an order had been received at Har-I 1 risbuig from the War Department, directing ! J that no more recruits be mustered into the 55th ! ( P. V I have been particular in giving younn 1 account of the whole affair, so that if my very : J few frieuds should ever speak of it to you, you i ( would be able to explain the whole matter in i i its true light. Tlie individual who published J the article, I don't suppose has brains enough ! to understand that a soldier obeys orders from ■ i bis superiors, or he would not have done so af- ; < ter my explanation in the dispatch. Yours, i S. S. METZGER. I From the Reading Gazelle. The Monroe Doctrine. Our would-be statesmen in Congress have at last condescended to turn aside, for a few mo ments, from the consideration of such questions a3 the right of negroes to ride upon the street railways of Washington, and devote a little of their time to international affairs. After allow ing Louis Napoleon to prosecute his sinister and ambitious designs in Mexico to the point at which their full realization seems on the eve of aecom-, plishment, without a single word of remonstrance they now, through the Foreign Committee oi the House, give H tardy and feeble expression of their disapproval, which may mean somethiug or nothing, just as tlio Administration chooses, It affords us, however, a grain of comfort, at least, to observe that even this weak assertion of the traditional policy of our Government with regard to the intrigues of foreign powers upon American soil, has been found necessary by our pusillanimous rulers, to save them from becom tng contemptible in the eyes of the world. Tlie action ot the House has a faint ring of the old metal in it, and leads 113 to hope that the time may yet return when the freedom of tlie negro will not be the first and almost exclusive concern of American statesmanship. In the House of Representatives, on Monday last, Mr. Davis, (Rep.) of Maryland, from the Committee on Foreign Affairs, reported the fol lowing joint resolution: Resolved, By the Senate and House of Represen tatives in Congress assembled , That the Congress of the United States are unwilling, by silence to leave the nations of the world.under the impres sion that they arc indifferent spectators of the de plorable event 3 now transpiring in the Republic of Mexico; and that they therefore think it tit to declare that it does not accord with the policy of the United States to acknowledge a monarchical Government erected on the ruins of any republi can Government in America, under the auspices of any European Power. No objection having been offered to the con sideration of the resolution, the following briof debate occurred upon it: Mr. (BROOKS. What does the gentleman pro pose to do with the joint resolution 1 Mr. DAVIS, of Maryland. I propose to put it upon its passage. Mr. BROOKS. I have no objection to the joint resolution if it be not a mere paper fulraination- Ido object, however, to paper thunder. If it means anything I am in favor of the resolution ; if not, I am opposed to it. Mr. DAVIS, of Maryland. Mr. whether it be a mere paper fuimination or not depends upon whether the Congress of tbo United States shall adopt it, and whether it represents, in adopting it the opinions of tlie people of the i United States. It is a declaration simply as to what our policy is to be respecting events which touch our interest very nearly. I take it that it is not a subject which anybody desires here to discuss ; ami I suspect that if there be a dissent in this House it is about the only dissent that can be found in the United States on this subject. Mr. Cox. Mr. Speaker, I yield my concur rence to that resolution reported from the commit tee of which I am a member, although I should prefer— as the members on this side of the House would unanimously prefer—that it wore more emphatic and decided in its expression as to the intervention of France on this continent. It is a little late in the day for the National Legislature to pass such a resolution. lam aware that not only the present Administration but the preced ing Administration have not been as vigilant as they should have been as to our continental rela tions, and the protection of our traditional policy in that regard. I stood here laboring, in 1860, for the ratification of the treaty made bv Mr. j McLane, in order that the United States might, | in time, foil these very designs of Franco which j have since been developed to the disgrace of our ! Government and nation and of constitutional ' liberty on this continent. While I favor the res olution, I fear that it will be looked upon as a mere bratumfubnen —words, words, words—not j ing more. If we are in earnest, we ought to be I ready to back it up by something physical. I I think that is the way to back up resolutions of all nn<3 * n *y add, proclamations of all ( kinds. I believe the resolution ought to be more sig nificant and more emphatic, especially at this time, when Maximillian (who. I believe, is called the Arch J)ape of Louis Napoleon,) is about moving to this continent. We ought to be pre pared not only to say, but to make it effectual that no crown shall be established on this conti nent. We should stand up to the old Democratic doctrine whicn always cherished a defiance of all foreign dictation. That doctrine, as enunciated by a Democratic statesman, is this: that the es tablishment of a political protectorate by any one of the Bowers of Europe over any of the inde | pendent States of tins coulincnt, or, in other words, the introduction of a schema of policy j which would carry with it a right to interfere in j their concerns, is a measure to which the United j States have long since avowed their oppsition, j and which, should t ho attempt be made, they will J resist by a' 1 tjo means in their power I believe that to day the people of this country would back up an Administration that would give a proper defiance to this French intermeddling. 1 hey would sustain the doctrine of President Monroe, which has been since his time always hailed as the true continental policy of this Gov ernment. With these remarks, thanking the gentleman for having yiolded the floor to lue, I conclude what I have to say. Mr. DAVIS, of Maryland. I am sorry that my friend from Ohio should hare felt compelled to make an argument against the resolution es pecially as I understand him to say that ae in tends to support it. Mr. Cox. I did not make an argument against the resolution; I shall vote for it. Only 1 wish that it were more emphatic. The resolution then passed finally by a unani mous vote, as follows: YEAS —Messrs.

We must in justice apologize to the Tribune j for refusing our credence to its story, that Mrs. J. Todd White, a sister of Mrs. Lincoln, who lately went South byway of Fortress Monroe, abused her pass and carried contraband goods in several large trunks, so giving aid and com fort to tlie enemy. The facts are as the Tribune stated them— or even worse; and in apologizing to Ihut journal for an incredulity which its habitual mendacity regarding political opponents has created and fostered in our minds, we have no other alternative than to restate the facts pre cisely as they arc, painful as it is to any loyal American to join tlint fanatical journal in any course, or to endorse its im|Miachtncnt of the ehiof magistrate of the United States for as sisting openly in giving direct aid and comfort to the armed enemies of the Union. Tlie facts, then, are these, and we muko no comment upon them; for if they do not, in themselves, make | the heart of every patriotic northern man and woman shudder within them, then the fanati cism of the time has drugged the nortli into an insensibility which nothing can arouse: Mrs. J. Todd White, a sister of Mrs. Presi dent Lincoln, was a rebel spy and sympathizer. When she passed into the confederacy a few days ago, by tlie way of Fortress Monroe, she carried with her in her trunks all kinds of con traband goods, together with medicines, papers, letters, etc., which will be, doubtless, of tlie greatest assistance to those with whom she con sorts. V hen Gen. Butler wished to open her trunks, as tlie regulations of transit there prescribe, this woman show; 1 him an autograph pass or order from President Lincoln, enjoining upon the Fed eral otficers not to open any of her trunks, and not to subject the bearer of the pass, her pack ages, parcels or trunks, to auy inspection or an noyance. Mrs. White said to Gen. Butler or the officer in charge there, in substance, as fol lows: "My trunks are filled with contraband, but I defy you to touch them. Here," (pushing j it under their noses,) ''here is the positive or- 1 der of your master!" Mrs. White was thus allowed to pass with-' out the inspection and annoyance so perempto rily forbidden by President Lincoln in an order written and signed by bis own hand, and to-day the contents of his wife's sisters trunks are giv ing aid and comfort to the enemy—nor least in the shock which these facts will give to the loy al hearts whose hopes and prayers and labors sustain the cruse which is thus betrayed in the very White House.— N. T. World. Southern Estimate of Gen. Grant—They are Pleased with his Elevation. Tlio plans of the southern leaders for the cam paign of 1864, are based in a measure, bu' not entirely, upon what they have divined of t'ae plans and designs of the administration at Wash ington. It may strike our readers with sur prise, but it is nevertheless a fact, that the south ern leaders at Richmond do not anticipate any great change in the results of the war from Gen- Grant's recent elevation. They do not dread his plans as they did (and would) tlie plans of McClellan. They did not regard him as pos sessing military genius of a high order. Not counting McClellan, there are no less than five other generals in the Union army who are far more dreaded by them than Gen. Grant. They regard Gen. Grant as being in tlie same class, as regards military ability, with Gen's Meade, W. T. Sherman, Fitz John Porter, Wool and Kosecrans. The probability of his elevation to the chief command has been a subject of de bate at Richmond for some weeks. If such a step was taken, it is believed by the southern leaders that it Wou.V! !* H political move on the part of the administration, anu B would not be made as a military measure, or wi'.n *.'? e view of a more vigorous prosecution of the war on the part of the north. They believe that if Gen, Grant had been left where he was, and if he had been furnished with troops enough, that i he would have given them considerable trouble i:i the west during this year; for they believe that his military abilities are fully equal to the direction of a vigorous campaign in that field. But they believe that his elevation to tho chief command will be a positive advantage to them for three reasons ; First, bceausc his attention will be drawn from the west, which will enable them to carry out their plans there. Second, because tbey believe there is only one man in the north who is capable of directing the oper ations of the war as a whole, and of planning campaigns for the general conduct of the war ; and Gen. Grant is not that man. And, third, because they believe (and that belief is founoed cn authentic intelligence, which they have re ceived from a very high source in Washington) that it is the intention of the President to con- j tinue to plan the campaigns, and to direct tho ! movements and operations of the Union armies himself, and to compel Gen. Grant to divulge j his plans to him. Tho existence of this stale of things will, they believe, e rble them to car ry out successfully their plans for the campaign of 1864. garA lady frier.d of ours was in Chicago the other day, and was risked by her cousin now she liked the Balr oral stocking. 'O, very well,' was the reply.—"Well, I don't,' said th cou sin, 'nor will I wear them either; I'll te hai ged if I'll make a barber's pole of my leg for the sake of being fashionable. fe'TuE ADMINISTRATION PARERS urge the practice of economy by the people.
