Pkssstltasia's Qcota. We last week pub
lished Got. Curtin's proclamation, calling
upon the people of the Commonwealth to fur
nlsb the State's quota of troops, under the
recent call of the President. The number of
regiments to be furnished by Pennsylvania is
twenty -one, besides Oiling np her regiments
now in active service. The Governor to ex
pcdite the raising of the new regiments, hnd
a scbednle prepared, apportioning the number
of companies to be furnished by each county,
which Is as follows :
Adams 2, Allegheny 15, Armstrong 1, Bea
ver 2, Berks 6, Blair 2, Bradford 5, Bucks 6,
Butler 3, Cambria 2, Carbon 2, Chester 6, Cen
tre 2, Clarion and Forest 2, Clinton 1, Clear
field 1, Columbia 1, Crawford 2, Cumberland
2, Danpbin b, Delaware 2, Erie 6, Elk and
HcKean 1, Fayette 1, Franklin and Fulton 6,
Greene 1, Huntingdon 2, Indiana 2, Jefferson
1, Juniata 1, Lancaster 8, Lawrence 2, Leba
non 2, Lehigh 2, Luzerne 7, Lycoming 3,
Mercer 2, Mifflin 1, Monroe and Pike 1, Mont
gomery 5, Montour 1, Northampton 3, North
.umberland 2, Perry 1, Philadelphia 60, Pot

Sullivan and Wyoming 1, Susquehanna 2,
Tioga3, Union 1, Venango 1, Warren 2, Wash
Ington 3, Wayne 2, Westmoreland 3, York 3.
By the above schedule it will be seen that
Clearfield county is to furnish one company
.In many counties of the State largo bounties
are being made up for volunteers by Individ
.tial enterprise ; whilst in others, the County
Commissioners are appropriating moneys out
of the county funds for that purpose.
Has there been anything done in Clearfield
county towards raising the company that is
asked from her 7 If not, the good work should
at once bo commenced. In former days her
noble sons responded with alacrity and zeal,
and their bravery is beyond question. Let
them not now be wanting In their duty to their
country, but may they once more step for
ward bravely and fearlessly In defence of tho
lUnlon.
TnE .New Lett.-Larga and enthusiastic
meetings, In aid of raising the new quota of
men In Pennsylvania, havo been held in diff
erent sections of tho State and wo arc grati
fied to learn that they have been attended with
success, and that enlisting progresses with
fipirit. Every man who can go, should do so
without delay j and those who remain at homo
should encourage all who desire to go by lib
.orally providing for needy families during the
absence of tho volunteers. Tho necessities
of the Government are urgent, and there
should bo no delay In responding to the call
call for more troops. Let the loyal men of
.tho North show the same self-sacrificing en
thnalasra that seems to pervade rcbcldom
and it will not bo long until our army will be
Invincible, ami tho tide of treason will bo
hurled back, and tho rebellion utterly crushed
beneath the weight of tho advancing hosts of
freedom. Friends of tho Union, now is tho
tlmo to give strength to tho Government
Step forth in your might, and teach traitors
and sympathizers, that you aro determined
to see tho Union preserved, at all hazards.
Oooja roa LATROne. Tho Borough of La

The Vermont Democract. In the Ver
mont Democratic State Convention held at
Bellows Falls, on the 2d inst., there was the
usual truckling to Slavery in the speeches
made. There was one man, however, among
them, that awoke the secession sympathizing
leaders. Mr. Stoughten, a delegate, rebuked
them in the following wholesome manner:
Two of his sons, ho said, were at that mo
ment fighting their country's battles. He was
emphatically a Union man. He held party
in utter contempt, and party shackles in these
times should be cast off and thrown to the four
winds of heaven. He would sacrifice the
Democratic party at the shrine of the Union,
and so he believed would every true demo
crat. He hoped that the KepuMican wouia
do likewise with his party. The Abolition
ists, it is claimed, are the cause of the war.
Admit it. Have abolitionists done enough to
warrant this rebellion? The man who thinks
so is a traitor and not fit to live. He (Mr. S.)
had fought for the constitutional rights of the
South as long as any one of his age, but lie
utterly repudiated the insane idea that Mr.
Lincoln's election was an excuse for this re
bellion. It was the duty of every loyal and
patriotic man now to forget the past and aid
the Government in crushing out this infa
mous rebellion. Thank God! he approved
the policy of the Administration to the letter.
We must stand by the Government. If we
do not approve the policy of the Government,
we are in fact aiding the rebellion. The man
who attempts to shrink from this grave re
sponsibility, in his opinion, fails of being an
honest man. It has been said that though he
had been a Democrat he did ntt now talk
much like one. lie wonld go with the Demo
cratic party as long as they did not come in
conflict with this great principle of sustaining
the Government in its war policy, lie thought
the call issued by the Republican State Com
mittee embraced him and every loyal Demo
crat. He did not believe in the dodging poli
cy of this convention. God forbid that the
country has come to this pass, that the Demo
crats of Vermont should indorse such a call
as their State Committee had made. He be
lieved there was a conservative principle in
the Republican party. He believed Mr. Lin-
cola to be thoroughly conservative. He wan
ted no better platform than the doctrines em
braced in Senator Collamer s recent speech
on confiscation.
Tub War Stirit. The people, everywhere
In the loyal States, are enthusiastic in aid of
the National Government at this time. En
listments are progressing rapidly, and it will
be but a short time until the call for 300,000
men will be filled. A more determined and
enthusiastic fueling has at no former time per
vaded the American people, than is now man
ifested. Largo and enthusiastic meetings are
being held in various parts of this State, In
aid of tho 21 new Pennsylvania regiments.
The meeting in Philadelphia numbered about
40,000, and at Pittsbuig about 30.000 tho
object being to encourage enlistments and the
contributing to a patriotic bounty fund for the
use of volunteers. Below we give such of tho
contributions, up to this date, as have fallen
under our notice :
Pennsylvania Itailroad Company, $50,000
County Commissioners, Lancaster, 60,000
County Commissioners, Chester, 80,000
Citizens of Philadelphia, 75,000
Reading Railroad Company, 25,000
Citizens of Chambersburg, 8,000
Citizens of Harrisburg, 8,430

County Commissioners, Berks, 80,000
Citizens of Pittsburg, 21,000
County Commissioners, Lohigh, 10,000
County Commissioners, Northampnon, 80,000
Making a total of $310,631.
A PR0P03ITI0N AND AN ANSWER.
"Had there been a majority of "doughfi
ces" and "Union Savers" in the country in
1800, our neighbors and friends would not now
be wreathed in the habiliments of lamentation
and woe, and could eat and drink their food
without an enormous tax upon them to sup
port "shoddy" patriotism and enrich Govern
ment contractors." Clearfield Republican.
"Tho Democratic party concocted treason
and organized rebellion and to tho Demo
cratic party the people may trace the cause
for every dollar of tax they will bo called on
to pay, every life that has been sacrficed and
eveiy dollar that has been squandered. The
blood and treasure, the anguish and bereave
ment, the widowhood and orphanage, the des
olation and despair, that have thus far sprung
from rebellion, are the peculiar achievements
of tho doughface Democracy In the North,
demonstrated and carried into practical effect
by tho armed traitors and Democratic adhe
rents of tho South. Had there been no Dem
ocratic party in this land, slavery would havo
been abolished half a century ago ; and had
slavery thus been suffered to die out, freedom
would have flourished and strengthened, tiri'il
rebellion would have been confined to tho
dreams Instead of tho demonstrations of a few
dissatisfied spirits." (Jreemburg Herald.
Drafting How Tirei Do It. The subject
of drafting has become one of considerable
interest within a few days past, the idea gain
ing currency tliat.a draft from each State will
be made to fill up our thinned regiments in
the field. Drafting is provided for by a law
of Congress framed In 1702, entitled "An act
to provide for tho National defence, by estab
llshlng a Uniform Militia throughout tho
United States," afterwards amended and ap
plied to all arms-beating citizens of the court
try. Tho process of drafting Is about tho
same In the various States. Rolls aro prepar
ed of those liable to serve able-bodied men
between the ages of eighteen ami forty-five
and the requisite number of names are drawn
by lot in the presence of prescribed officials.
Tho persons drawn are notified, and given on
portunity to prove themselves exempt, or
provide suitable substitues, failing in which,
they are" compelled to serve or submit to
heavy penalties, generally imprisonment.
The country has a tight to (he service of her
citizen In defence Of (he nation, as hone will
dispute i and to avoid the disagreeable neees
sliy of a forced exaction of such settle, the
thinned tanks Of our shattered army should
be filled st otice by the voluntary tender of
eter rnsn who can by any means leave home

INTERESTING WAR NEWS,
New Yobk, July 23. Col. Edmund C.
Charles of the Tammany regiment, who was
wounded in the recent battle before Richmond
and tatten prisoner by the rebels, was after
wards released and is now at the New York
Hospital. He says that while in Richmond
be had frequent talks with rebel officers, from
which he forms the opinion that the working
classes of that city are Union at heart, but
the despotism of the rebel government pro
hibits any discussion of politcs, even in the
newspapers. The rebel Congress do little
talking, and everything shows the force and
execution of a one man power. Very many
of the North Carolina troops, and some of
the Virginians, and a consuleiable portion of
Georgiai-3, are in favor of a return to the old
Union, but the more Southern troops are ear
nestly in favor of continuing the war. He
also says that the Louisianians have a bitter
hatred of General Butler, and some of them
have adopted the war cry of "hang brute But
ler." The hanging of MumfOrd lor hauling
down Ithe United States flag, it was under
stood, the "Government" were disposed to
consider as a murder, and make a demand for
Butler, and incase of a refusal to such a
claim, to execute Major-General McCall, who
is a prisoner in their lianas. General McOall
is confined in a prison in Eighteenth, near
Cary street, in Richmond, along with about
one hundred and fifty other Union officers.

A cavalry expedition sent out by General
King, on tho 23d, from Fredericksburg, re.
turned last evening. Early yesteiday morn
ing they met and defeated a body of confed
erate cavalry about one hundred strong, sta.
tioncd near Cartnel church, on tho Telegraph
road from Fredeiicksburg to Richmond, burnt
their camp and six cars loaded with corn, and
broke up tho telegraph to Gordonsville. An
hour later a large party of Stuart's cavalry
came up to attack them. These, too, were
defeated, driven across the North Ann river
and pursued till withtn sight of Hanover junc
tion. Several prisoners, a largo number of
horse and many arms were brought back. A
march of seventy miles and the encounter
and defeats of two bodies of confedrato cav
alry were accomplished in twenty-nine hours,
and without the loss of a man. I have not
yet received tho names of tho Commanding
officer and troops who have thus distinguished
themselves, but will transmit them to you as
soon as the particulars are received. The
damage done to tho Virginia Central road by
the expedition of the l'Jth has not yet been
repaired. John Porn,
Major-General Commanding.
Washington, July 21, 18(52 A gentleman
who arrived here this afternoon lelt M'Clellan's
head-quarters on Saturday morning. He
states that General M'Clellan is not the least
dashed at the turn events have taken, but is
more confident than ever that lie will capture
Richmond as soon as his army is properly
recruited. Tho troops aro daily improving
in health. General M'Clellan receives all his
supplies with great regularity. The men aro
now furnished with most excellent rations.
They are served with fresh beef four times a
week. The rebels are making a dosperato at
tempt o blockade the James river. They are
continually erecting new batteries in new po
sitions, but they are invariably silenced by a
few shells from our gunboats. General Me
Clellan says tho rebels will never be able to
close tin James river against him. Tho po
sition now held by our army is a most secure
one. Tho only point of attack tho rebels
have is an open space of about a quarter of a
mile, which they cannot enter in sufficient
force to dislodge our troops. Tho guns
mounted at this point would mow the rebels
down as rapidly as they could march up.

Wholesale Arrest of Officers. The
following statement, communicated to the
Chicago Journal, we have undoubted authori
ty for stating, fa true in every particular !
The reader may imagine the rage and despair
of brave men and true patriots, subjected to
such outrageous indignities by a General
whose whole proceedings show that bis syra
pathis are wi'h slavery and slave holders. He
ought to be cashiered at once. It is a dis
grace to onr country ,and to theAmerican name,
that American soldiers and officers, who aro
well educated, and more respectable, than this
doughty General, should be subjected to such
indignities, and that, too, out of regard to a
vile traitor, who, if he bad his deeerts ought
to be hung. The following is the statement
referred to ;
A correspondent of the Chicago Journal,
writing from Gen.Buell's army, under.recent
date, mentions the following circumstances
concerning Gen. McCook's command :
Oh Thursday, June 2Gth, after a fatiguing
march of fourteen miles, his division encamp
ed within three miles of Athens, in a large
open .field belonging to an intense rebel.
The day was exceedingly hot ; hardly a breath
of air stirred to fan the fevered brow, and hot
as it was, tho ground parched beneath their
feet, the soldiers prostrated themselves upon
it, completely fatigued. Soon some of the
boys went to the fences, took a few rails and
started a fire to boil their coffee. Had there
been other timber upou the ground they
would not thought of doing it. In almost no
time, neatly every regimental commander
was put under arrest. The cause was taking
the rails. Orders were at once issued compell
ing the boys to rebuild the fence. They
commenced the work. Oue who was not en
gaged in the work, but who was anxious to
ascertain the extent of the damage done,
passed around the entire field, and tho result
of the damage done by tho four regiments of
the Fifth Brigade was the loss of twenty
eight rails. This was the number which the
boys cut from a piece of adjoining timber
atid repaired the fence. The officers thus put
under arrest for this cause were Col. Dodge,
of the 30th Indiana; Lieut. Col. Bristol, of
the 34th Illinois; Lieut. Col. Dunn, of the
29th Indiana ; Major Bradford, of the 77th
Pennsylvania, all commanding regiments of
the 5th brigade ; Col. Willich, of the 3 2d In
diana; Lieut. Col. Jones, of the 13th Indiana,
of Gun. Johnson's brigade; the Colonel and
all tho Captains of the "Louisville Legion,"
Gen, Rousseau's brigade. The damage done
by these two brigades but little exceeded that
of the 6th brigade. Now either that is right
or wrong. If it was right to burn the rails of
Union men in Kentucky by the thousands,
where is the wrong under circumstances as a
bove stated, of using a lew rails of an avowed
rebel ?
Admission or Patients to ths Insane Hos
pital. To avoid trouble and difficulty which
may arise from ignorance or misapprehension
relative to the admission ol patients into tho
Pennsylvania State Lunatic Hospital at Har
risburg, it has been deemed advisable to give
the following extracts from thoby-Iawg of the
hospital. These provisions will be strictly en
forced, and it is hoped that all who may have
occasion to bring piticnts to the hospital will
bo prepared to comply fully with the spirit
and letter of the regulations;
Preparatory to tho admission of a patient,
(unless when committed by order of a court,)
the Superintendent shall be furnished with the
certificate rt a physician that he has seen and
examined the individual and believes him or
Ler to be insane, with a request from a rear
relative or friend that the patient may be re
ceived into the hospital, and a bond, with sat
islactory security for the payment of board
and other expenses while in the institution.
All private patients thus received shall make
a payment of thirteen weeks' board in ad
vance when brought to the hospital, and if ta
ken away uncured and against tiie advice and
consent ol the Superintendent within that pe
riod, no part ol said payment shall be refunded .
"Whenever a patk-ut is sent to the hospital
by order of any court, just ice, judge, Direc
tors of the Poor of a county, or the overseers
of the poor of a township or poor district, the
order cr warrant, or a copy thereof, by which
such person is sent shall be lodged with the
Superintendent.
"Those who may bring a patient with any
such order or warrant will be required to pay
at thetimuof the admission ot the patient,
sixty-five dollars.
"A written history ol the case should be
sent with the patient, nnd, if possible, some
one acquainted with the individual should ac
company him to the hospital, from whom mi
nute, but often essential particulars may be
learned."
Cases of recent occurrence will bo received
at any time on compliance with the rcgula
tions.
I heard a good story the other day ol (Jen
Butler, of which I was reminded on reading
his late letter to tho President concerning the
issue between himself and (ten. Phelps as to
the treatment of slaves. (And by the way it
is hard to think that Gen. Butler, who returns
slaves at New Orleans, is tho same who first
uttered tho word "contraband.") When Gen
B. was at Fortress Monroe, some officers told
him that they had been conversing with Gen
Phelps, and that he (Gen. P.) was manifestly
crazy. Gen. B'went over at once and con
versed with Gen. Phelps, mid found him quite
sensible. A few days after that some Ver
mont gentlemen arrived, to urge the appoint
Ment ol Gen. Phelps to some expedition
(Jen. Butler sajd, with groat solemnity, "But,
gentlemen, have you not hoard the sad reports
of the insanity of Gen. Phelps 7" I ho ver
mont friends of Gon. P. were vtry Indignant,
and were denouncing the charge as malicious,
when (Jen. liutler interrupted them hj say
