Carlisle American Volunteer (Newspaper) - January 05, 1865, Carlisle, PennsylvaniaA Merican Volun Tese. M Bratton editor amp proprietor. Carlisle pa., Jan. 5, 1865. A cold blooded 1idrder. On saturday afternoon last a Man named Wilson t. Vanasdlan tras murdered at Cen trovillo this county under the following circumstances t i a was a Soldier Aud having been at Home for some time was regarded As a deserter. On tho afternoon in question three a rotors named Rupert met At a Tutor in cent Rove Lle and determined to a. Rest him and obtain the 530, which is paid for delivering a deserter to the Provost marshal. V. Was walking Homo when the Ruperts followed him in a Small Wagon and after passing him stopped their horse and got out. One of them walked up to And said to him a you Are my v., who was a Strong Man pushed Rupert aside and walked on toward his House. Howard Rupert then Drew a revolver and taking deliberate aim at v., fired. Tho Ball entered the body. V. Staggered throw up his hands and said a a Don t shoot again Rupert i am tho Ruperts then carried him into House Obero he died in a few minutes surrounded by his wife and three Little children. A such we believe is a history of this most heartless cowardly and Devilish Tor the Sake of obtaining 530, the Ruperts were induced to shoot Down a human being in the presence of his wife and babes. It was not necessary however to shoot Tho Throe Brothers could have Arros Lod him with nil ease but it is believed that they wanted to kill him,.and they did kill him. Ave Hope our he offie ors will see to it that the Ruperts Are arrested and punished. N. tho above was in Type we have Learned that the three Ruperts have in arrested and lodged in jail to await their trial for murder. Interesting we Are pleased to.

The ladies composing tho Union Aid society of Middlesex township treated the sick and wounded soldiers at the Barracks to a splendid Christmas dinner. All Honor to them. A correspondent thus Speaks of the repast and tho fair donors Carlisle Barracks pa., dec. 2g, 1804. J or. Editor saturday the 24th inst. Was a Joyful Day at this Post especially for the sick and wounded soldiers. The Good ladies of Middlesex township belonging to the Union Aid a society prepared. A Christmas dinner and if you had been present or. Editor to witness their kindness and to have participated in the grand dinner you would have said what every Soldier did a god bless the the ladies Ltd everything in abundance and it was in the Yery heat Stylo for the occasion. Their presence made it the More refreshing a to the Noble patriots who have so gallantly defended old Flag of Washington. The doctor j. J. B. Wright who is one of Wiir most skillful surgeons was present to Grace the party. The chaplain or. Ross it bonded to his duty in a Brief prayer followed by some remarks. Nono however seemed More delighted than the efficient Steward ii. Elerbe who is Evor at his Post striving to make tho sick and wounded soldiers comfortable. In the name of the sick and wounded i wish the ladies of the society a Long life and a Home in the world to come. A Friend or tie sick and wounded. The Iamb election the draft. Tbs Carlisle Herald continues to Inshrat the Nee the result of the late election Safe motioned a a Homo Ripton taxation arbitrary arrests and continued destruction of life and it says these a a Noonoo mutants of War were advocated during tho loto political Campaign by tho friends of tho administration and of be a a Aston led that to should attempt to Dony this. Tho Herald is. Mistake no to asserts that is not True. W o have the proof at hand to Nail its declaration to the counter. The friends of or. Lincoln did Fiot advocate those a Noonoo mutants of we Vry previous to the into election. On the contrary they hoisted that if or. Lincoln was re Oleo ted tho a moral effects of his endorsement by the Northern people would a a cause tho re Bels to throw Down their arms in despair and make All possible haste to get Back into the the election of Lincoln a a would be hotter than a half dozen or Moro Good sized victories 5n the a Field they a Baid a better even than the capture of Richmond and that it would end the War and restore the Union in a few Days a amp of. Tice president ii Aulin squawk i Here in Carlisle told us that Lincoln s re election a a would strike terror to the South and induce tho rebels to beg for Meroy and peace in less than thirty Days after the 8th of on the 2d of september inst the Seo rotary of War the tyrant Stanton Telegraph of to Gen. Dix Thattil one Hundred thousand new troops promptly furnished is All that Gen. Grant asks for the Campaign of Richmond and to give a fishing a logo to the rebel forces yet in the ius Toad of Ono Hundred thousand three Hundred thousand troops were a a promptly furnished a at a monstrous expense to tho people. About tho Saunio time tho Secretary of state Seward bolls 1 delivered a speech at Auburn n. Y. I which to said a we shall Havo no Drorit be cause a the army is being reinforced at the rate of five to ten thousand per Day by again just before tho presidential Oloc Tion or. Solicitor Whiting deliberately and to All appearance authoritatively announced that there were a a Moa enough in the army a and that a no Inore Rafle would be made even Gen. Grant was induced to write a letter in which to made tho outrageous declaration that the rebels wore deserting to his Standard a a at the rate of a Rogi meet a Day a and he hinted very broadly that the defeat of m Clellan would secure peace at once 1 such were the declarations of or. Lincoln s very particular friends. And now we Havo another draft ordered a for 300,000 More a which our Uci Ghiors of tho a cry old appear to. Regard As a very trifling affair. It May to trifling in tho Oyes of Trofio who have exemption Curti fates in their pockets. It May do very Well for the Hale Young Man who is Safe from the draft and who paid $300 to he Safe to talk flippantly about a a duty a &c., but tho poor Man who has a wife and Little ones to support and who was induced to Voo for the a a great incompetent because wily politicians and thieving shoddy ites assured him that bin re election would end the War in thirty Days a a can t see nor will he find much Consolation from Reading in his party Organ that the re election of Lincoln sanctioned a a conscription taxation arbitrary arrests and continued destruction of life and lie tho deceived Volos we repeat was not told this previous to the election but Toas told that by supporting tho rail splitter he would Aid in putting a Stop to All these things. The coming draft is an ugly reality. The grim fact is staring us in the face. There is no escape from it that we can Bee. Men will be demanded and old pack horse Pennsylva Nia will be Suro to have a Good round number of solid thousands saddled upon Hor Back and the estimates of the department at Washington will never be examined. Our Loyal governor will not interfere in tho matter. Whatever the allotments be the must be forthcoming by tho 15th Day of february the wheel of Fate will to turned. To to the poor devils who draw prizes in this lottery of death. No important election is immediately before us and few considerations will be al Lowed to mitigate its sorority. There Are no considerations now to induce the administration to consult much with the people or to it ten to suggestions from Thorn. The com ing conscription will to enforced with relent les6 rigor such As has not attended any of those which preceded it. A ii Korst old Whon every other argument failed tho advocates of Lincoln s election when to was donor need As a usurper by the Ablest republicans in Vongross Whon Frei ont boldly declared his administration to to a a politically financially and militarily a failure when his vulgarity had disgusted nil a kit thinking people when nothing Els Vas to to said in his behalf his paid advocates always plan Yoda the card of honesty. Lun Fortu Natolny whatever or. Lincoln May l Avo been before he was re Olec his late message is a very sad commentary upon his if Ever he was honest he must have become greatly corrupted by the associations which Havo surrounded him since his residence at Washington. Encircled Asho has been by Publio plunderers living As 1 o has done in Dii ily font not with thieving government offi oils he must Havo been vory sternly honest ind Odd if he did not feel tho deteriorating influx Noe of such villainous by bad company. We very much fear to must henceforth be looked upon As the living illustration of tho old paying a Yovil communications corrupt Good his message is in All respects very common place yet in curious financial recommendation to Dovlatov for once into originality which gives tho lie to the Oft repeated epithet of honest old Abe a and which is suggestive of a very Low tone of moral feeling. In speaking of this passage the n. Y. World says to gravely recommends that our govern _. I .1.11 an to /�1 f i a in a Lite ment shall raise Money from our citizens by corrupting their sense of pc Unior Honor 1 lie wants Congress to puss an net to protect tho purchasers of our government bowls from paying their honest debts 1 lie gravely recommends that this species of property shall he placed beyond the reach not Only of taxation but of erod tors. This from the president of the United states is a creditable proposal but when foreign nations Walro never hit upon his refinement shall see our government suggesting to our citizens a Safe method of evading their Privato obligations. Will not be Apt to infer that where such prevails it will he an Ensy step to Public repudiation 1 private and Norai Obliga Tion but tho average conscience of men is commonly supposed to to the weaker in relation to Public engagement. It spectacle As astounding As it is melancholy to see the chief magistrate of a great nation asking Congress to enable citizens to cheat their creditors out of their honest dues. It our african sister Liberia is to Liao one of our gunboats on credit As decided by the committee on in reign affairs a for the purpose of assisting in tho stoppage of the slave Trade now carried on contrary to the will of that the Secretary of the Navy is directed to select the vessel and Complete the arrangements. It is of peo that this new policy of making free gifts of our Navy Liberia being one of the biggest humbugs of the age will continue until nil the chiefs of tho two guineas Senc Gambia and the unexplored Region Are pro Vii fld with one of these interesting relics. 300,000 election is Over and tho president has ordered a fall and draft for 300,000 More troops a a to make up deficiencies occasioned by credits on tho last so states Edwin m. Stanton Seo rotary of War. No a a Copperhead lies about this. Tho democrats told the people that if they to Elee ted Lincoln there would be another draft which statement the abolitionists emphatically denied. Which party told the truth ? of Courso All the Loyal leagues will Volun a Teer at once. They surely will not wait to be drafted when the government wants men.

The Bright on tho Bright Side it is tho right Sido. Tho times May be hard but it will make them no easier by wearing a gloomy countenance. It is the Sunshine and not the Cloud that makes the Flower. There is always that before or around us which should cheer and fill the heart with warmth. The sky is Blue ten times where it is Black once. You Havo troubles it May be. So have others. None Aro free from perhaps it is Well that none should they give sinew and tone to life fortitude and courage to Man. That would be a Dull sea and the Sailor would never get skill where there was nothing to disturb the surface of the Rooan. It is the duty of every one to extract All the happiness and enjoyment to can without and within him and above All he should look on the Bright Side of things. What though things do look a Little dark the Lane will turn and the night will end in Broad Day. In the Long run1 tho great balance rights itself. What is ill becomes Well what is wrong right. Men Are not made to Long Down either Bonds or lips Quot and those who do Only show that they Are departing from the paths of True common sense and right. There is More virtue in one Sunbeam than a whole hemisphere of Cloud and gloom. Therefore we repeat look on the Bright Side of things. Cultivate what is warm and go Nials not the cold and repulsive tho dark and morose. A the congressional . Curtin on monday issued his proclamation declaring that Sun Mel j.

It will be observed that the name of lion. A. Ii. Coffroth the Domo Ontic member elect in the Lgth District is omitted. The governor has no Power legally to annul the certificate of election or.

Koontz and therefore general has filed an opinion declaring the returns upon this ground the governors proclamation goes on to say a a that no such returns of the election in tho sixteenth congressional District have icon sent to the Secretary of the Commonwealth As would under the act of Assembly of 2d july 1830, Auto Orisza Ine to proclaim the name of any person As having been duly elected a member of tho House of representatives of the United states for that a tho effect of this will he thrown upon the House itself tho decision of the Case which will of course oust the democratic member and give the Soat to an abolitionist. In this manner Are the rights of the people trample 1 on by tho unscrupulous party now in Power. The Judas will he recollected How apparently pm Tfelt and solemn was the a god bless you with which tho victorious my Clellan was greeted after the Battle of Antietam Lincoln and How soon thereafter the Young hero fell before the executive order to a report at did treachery Lurk in tho words were they like tho kiss of Judas Only designed to or a secret purpose to destroy ? if so then alas for Sherman to Are informed in the late Southern news that colonel Markland has just delivered a verbal message to gon. Sherman from tho president. Taking the general by the hand tho colonel said a a general Sherman before leaving Washington i was directed by the president to Tike you by the hand wherever i Mot you and say for him a god bless you and the army under your commandant he furthermore added a since cutting Loose from Atlanta my prayers and those of the nation have been Tor your Success two Are further informed that Gen. Sherman was deeply affected As was the hero of Antietam after receiving the same hollow greeting of gratitude. Does treachery Lurk in those words of greeting yet and again and is the axe already sharpened for the neck of this great Captain in hut a Little while we shall know whether my Clellan s Fate will be Sherman a and have it determined whether a god bless you shall hereafter he under de stood As the Federal order for execution.

It is very possible. To had Little to resign. Ii Rhad fought bravely heroically against overwhelming Odds. Lie has been deserted in a most characteristically manner by one loader and Follower after an other. Ilia eyes would no longer turn with the faintest Light of Hopo to tho a cat Republic of the North and it was about time in despair to throw up the reins of Power and shake the dust of Rule from fest. If he is tired of Mexico or unsafe or heartily Welcome him Here and wish we Hod a better country to offer him an Asylum.

Maximilian has been progressing milking a tour through tho mexican states in which he a amp is to was lived with such enthusiasm As to assure him that the great body of tho mexican people Aro in mayor of tho monarchy. He say that what Mexico wants is a peace Justice and Tranquility a and that is Truo if Maximilian never truth before and never tells it again. It is a Blessing Jmc Xico has never enjoyed since tho reign of the Montezuma and if they Reeo Ive it under a monarchy we expect they will exhibit re a attachment for that form of government. We certainly have no right to blame them. Thoy followed the Ignis a tuns of Liberty through All the bogs Aud quagmires of revolution oligarchy and tyranny and if they find firm land in their new a kingdom conic a who will Blamo them for enjoying it. also gives duo notice that to will hear after follow a diff Reut a a pm Divay towards the Juar ints or heretofore he has treated them is lawful belligerents hereafter a proposes to Deal with them As outlaws and rubbers. Further isl stance he thinks is uhe loss and unjustifiable and must he put Down with a Stilt my hand. Rigid or wrong in this we can to by a pm a. The interest it had in Mexico is drip a the Monroe doctrine it associations is played out. There Only remains to us the mortification of know ing that won Rico had such a policy. Maximilian can pitch All tho men off Chimborazo and boil All the old women Niagu Edento and to can to help it.

De too Quevillon was hissed by every Man that heard him and in thirty Days from the utterance of that speech the King was driven from his throne and France expiated for her crimes and corruptions by tho blood of More than ten thousand of her Pons and not a vestige of that throne remains and the children of Louis Phillippo Are exiles and wanderers on tho face of tho Earth.

On tho other hand the organs of those in office expatriate of the evil and danger of the rotation system and Thoy frequently quote Lincoln s joke about swapping horses while crossing a let the irrepressible conflict go on. It May possibly work out Good to tho country. Death of col. Charles a. May. We take the following notice of the death of this gel Lanc officer from then y. World. Col. May was stationed for a number of years at the Carlisle Rarra oks and was personally Well known to All our citizens. The world boys a a a a Brave and Ohi Valno Soldier a Truo and High souled gentleman an american whose name is indissolubly connected with one Ai tho most Brilliant episodes of our National history passed to uis rest in this pity on saturday tho 24th instant. A a col. Charles a. May of Maryland entered tho army of tho United states during the second presidency of Andrew Jackson and resigning Bis commission in 18g0, retired into Privato life in this City where he Lias since resided winning an honorable nuni among oar citizens As the Active and efficient. Vice president and a superintendent of the eighth Avenue Railroad company. A a but on the Rolls of that Noble army of the Union enlisted for All time the company of patriotic soldiers who fighting together Yide by ule under the Ono Flag of their fathers knew no North no South 110 bust no West Hub won for All the land a common tit ump hand a common Fame the name of col. May the Soldier of Resaca do la Palma and of Monterey is still borne a a for Ouist among the for Mont a a Fow names brilliantly than his in tho record a of the last War waged by americans Agapis it foreign fee. Others his companions imams during that glorious episode of our annals Iva since made them elves More widely known in the conflicts of the civil a life which now desolate the re Public. But tho Famo of May neither South nor North can claim. The Story of the re fist Ops Cavalier who led to Many charges on thobe far Fields of Mexico belongs to America and will he proudly remembered by americans As Long As Knightly courage stirs the blood of youth and duty loyally done commands the respect of men. A a Lonel May in the vigor of life having been Burn Languit 0, 1818, in the pity of Baltimore and his singularly Stalwart Frame and stately presence Well befitting n Soldier of Romance seemed to Promise him Many years of usefulness and but an organic tendency to disease of the heart to which his brother. Captain Julian May some years since succumbed de looped itself into sudden and fatal Force and aggravated probably by his incessant Devotion to the duties of his position among us into which he carried a military thoroughness and exactness of administration Over matched Over his colossal strength of frame.�?�. A Lew to build a negro t1 Good people of a a free Maryland Are Likely to have a surfeit of the blessings of Lincoln administration. Not Only Are elections car rid by Furco but Sis shown he recent events when parties obnoxious to those in Pov rare elected to office they no to he compelled to resign by being seized and to own int prison until they consent to do so. Nor Bijj this All. With a Peculiar fondness for the negro the generals who lord it Over a generous people seem to regard the iut create of negro us us Paramount. The show Hill shield published in Worcester county state that general Lockwood a Rhu at Newtown in that county levied a fwd of �?��?T$1.01 0 upon person living we Teliin a rang of five Miles of the Village to rebuild a negro Church which had been destroyed by fisc. Tho work was supposed to he that of incendiaries. We shall doubtless soon Charof levies lifting Rumado to endow academies and colleges or negroes. By All Means let the be Rophile my have full swing. In there limes it is Only shoddy and the negroes who reach tho upper level of loyalty. A if jes1&Quot the new Fork Tribune in it leading editorial uses in regard to greenbacks the following scarcely decent language to be used on any subject. The Greenback that Calls itself fire dollars is unconsciously a liar. Al is really but a Little Over two dollars. And this like All other lies though it seem for the moment advantageous is a general mischief and detriment. The scheming gaming few May make by it hut the industrious Many must Loose. As the inanimate Greenback did not print and cannot resent what tho 7vi6tmecalln tho a Olio a or Promise to the to Lune in this paragraph virtually Calls our government a liar for issuing the greenbacks. This is a curious method of writing on financial questions and does not strengthen Confidence in government promises to . Mono frauds resorted to by the traitor Abol zionists at the late election exceeds anything Ever known in this or any other country. It is now confidently believed that Lincoln did not carry a single state except old disunion Massachusetts the a a Soldier vote was a wholesale fraud and swindle. Hero is another item from a Juniata Papor we mentioned two Wooks ago the fact that according to the returns received at the fro Toboh Divry s office in my Flinton company b., of the 102d regiment gave my clean Only 13 a Tes whereas private information re Civ. De claimed for him a m Jority or30 votes 1�? subsequently however a second a a rotund was received by the prothonotary which gave m Clellan 24 votes in tint but even this has Boon proved to to fraudulent. 35 members of the Oun Pany Over their own signatures have published a card a glaring that they All voted for m Lulian and four others Whoso names arc not attach-.1 to the card Are known to have voted the ammo Way. Thus in one company gon.
