The Guerilla Moseby
(Column 5)Summary: An article describes several incidents in Col. Moseby's military career, between 1862 and the end of the war.
Editorial Comment: "The New York World has published a series of interesting articles giving the character and achievements of various rebel leaders. They are written by one of Lee's late staff officers, and must be accepted as coming from one of the strongest rebel proclivities. One of his last contributions is on the ubiquitous Moseby, the great guerilla chief of the Virginia border--the man who periled the safety of every hen-roost, horse stable, money-till, grocery and dry goods store, corn-crib, and larder within his range, and who delighted in stopping railroad trains and robbing every passenger indiscriminately, regardless of age, sex or circumstances, of all monies, watches, jewelry, and other valuables. Of this accomplished free-booter, the World's correspondent thus graphically and kindly writes, and we give it as a matter of of general interest to our readers, who knowing Moseby, will appreciate his history:"Fast Young Ladies
(Column 7)Summary: The brief piece warns young women that, should they hope to become "fast young ladies," they must "lay aside all reserve and refinement" and adopt "masculine attire, masculine habits, and masculine modes of expression."
Full Text of Article:
In order to be a fast young lady, it is necessary to lay aside all reserve and refinement--everything that savors of womanly weakness; to have no troublesome scruples, but to be ready to accord an appreciating smile to the broadest joke. There must be no feeling of dependence on the stronger sex; but, by adopting, as far as decency permits, masculine attire, masculine habits, and masculine modes of expression, accompanied by a thorough knowledge of slang, and a fluency in using it, these ladies show themselves to be above all narrow-minded prejudices. There must be no thinking about other people's feelings; if people will be thin skinned, let them keep out of their way at all events. Should "mamma" raise her voice in a feeble remonstrance, the fast young lady impresses upon her that "she is no judge of these matters. In her old school days, everything and every one were slow; but it is quite changed now." In short, to sum up, to be a fast young lady, modesty, delicacy, refinement, respect for superiors, consideration for the aged, must all be set aside; boldness, independence, irreverence, brusqueness, and, we fear, too often heartlessness, must take their place.
(Column 1)Summary: In an effort to sway voters to the Republican cause, the editors criticize their counterparts at the Valley Spirit, and Democrats in general, for their about-face since the end of the war. Only a year before, they remind readers, these "hypocrites" were vilifying Lincoln for prosecuting an unjust war and were proclaiming those men who fought for the Union cause to be "pimps, hirelings, and butchers." Now, however, the Democrats are seeking votes by placing soldiers on their ticket and voicing their support for the President.Republican Retrenchment
(Column 1)Summary: The article reports that the national debt has been reduced by close to $1.75 million over the past two months, and attributes the decrease to the policies initiated by Secretary McCulloch.Disinterment of Soldiers
(Column 2)Summary: A notice to the relatives of slain soldiers that they may claim the bodies of their deceased loved-ones after signing an affidavit before a justice of the peace or notary public to the effect that they are authorized to receive said body.Political Nominations
(Column 5)Summary: A complete list of the candidates for Senator, Representatives, and President Judge.The Election!
(Column 7)Summary: A summary of the partial returns from the election, which, according to the latest reports, was won by the Union State ticket (Republican Party) by between 8,000 to 10,000 votes. The article also includes the results by district for Franklin county.
Full Text of Article:[No Title]
We have but partial returns from the State, and they indicate the success of the Union State ticket by from 8,000 to 12,000. Philadelphia gives from 3,000 to 4,000; Allegheny 5,000; Lancaster 4,500; Dauphin 1,200. Berks gives 5,000 Democratic, Cumberland 500, and scattering reports show uniform Democratic losses in the heavy Democratic counties on the vote of last October. Our last dispatch from Philadelphia, at 1 1/2 this morning, says that the State is regarded as Union by from 8,000 to 12,000, but gives no details. We do not accept this report as conclusive, but we do not see how the result can be against us.
At the time of going to press (2 A. M., this morning) we have but twelve of the twenty-two districts reported, and they show a Union gain of TWENTY-TWO on the home vote for President last year, when Gen. McClellan had forty-six majority. This leaves twenty-four majority to overcome in the remaining districts, and we cannot even guess as to the result. We hope for a falling off in Letterkenny, Lurgan and Concord, from the crushing Democratic majorities of last year, and a small Union gain in Metal, but we can only surmise.
The local ticket runs rather ragged. McClellan gains considerably--probably forty votes--in Chambersburg. Doebler also gains largely here and is pretty certainly elected Sheriff. Kuhn is also elected Surveyor, but the rest of the ticket is in doubt.
We have no returns for Assembly excepting from the North Ward, Loudon and St. Thomas, and cannot calculate the result. Col. Stumbaugh will probably lead Tressler from 50 to 100 in the county, and McLellan will lead Stumbaugh probably from 50 to 75. We have no returns from Perry to indicate the vote of the county. Our Representatives are therefore in doubt.
Greenvillage is the banner district. She has done most nobly, and had her efforts been imitated throughout the county, the entire Union ticket would now be triumphantly elected.
Duncan gains a few votes for Senator and may have a very small majority over M'Conaughy in the county. A dispatch from Gettysburg states that the Union men have made clear gains, but the county is pretty certainly Democratic by 100 to 125, so that Duncan's election to the Senate is assured.
The following is the vote by districts in the county as far as they are reported, compared with the home vote for President last year:Pres. 1864. Aud. Gen. '65. Senator.

*Montgomery and Peters
(Column 7)Summary: The piece relates that a scheme to supply southern planters with white laborers "has been devised by men in the East," led by Gov. Andrew of Massachusetts. The goal of the plan is to promote the emigration of "a population having Northern energy and ideas," which will thus "'reconstruct' the Southern States socially as well as politically."
Full Text of Article:
A COMPREHENSIVE scheme for benefitting the South by supplying it with labor has been devised in the East; Governor Andrew, of Massachusetts, being at the head of it. The project contemplates the establishment of a central office in New York, where the owners of land in the slave states can become acquainted with Northern purchasers, and thus a stream of emigration be organized which will fill certain sections of the South with a population having Northern energy and ideas. Branch offices will be instituted in all the former slave States. In this way it is hoped to "reconstruct" the Southern States socially as well as politically. The Southern States themselves are doing something of the same kind, and to the same end. It is proposed in several of them to appoint a State Commissioner, with power to ascertain and advertise all lands for sale, to open information offices, to distribute descriptive pamphlets, and to station emigration agents in the chief ports of Europe.
