The "Transcript" on the Removal of McClellan
(Column 1)
Summary: The editors attempt to refute, point by point, an editorial in the Repository and Transcript that justifies the removal of McClellan. To the Transcript's accusations that McClellan would not move on the rebels when at Washington, the editors argue that his plans had been revealed to the Confederates; when the Transcript compares McClellan's inaction to Union victories in the west, the editors claim that McClellan, as General-in-Chief, deserves credit for those victories; when the Transcript accuses McClellan of stopping short of Richmond, the editors blame the "treachery and deception" of political leaders in Washington for undercutting McClellan; when the Transcript appears to be both praising and criticizing McClellan's organizational abilities, the editors point out this inconsistency; and when the Transcript interprets the President's move as a response to the elections, which indicated a desire for a more vigorous prosecution of the war, the editors point out that before the election the Transcript had said that a Democratic victory would mean a repudiation of the war.
Editorial Comment: "In the last issue of the Repository and Transcript appears a lengthy and labored editorial on the removal of Gen. McClellan from the Army of the Potomac. It abounds in inconsistencies and absurdities that are really amusing."
A Suggestion
(Column 2)
Summary: A sarcastic editorial that asks where the 900,000 soldiers that Horace Greely promised the President, if he signed the emancipation proclamation, would be. The editors also suggest that McClellan's local critics should take command of troops since they seem to know military tactics better than McClellan did.
Full Text of Article:

Now since the radicals have forced the President to surrender the management of the war into their own hands; and since they have determined that the war shall be carried on for the abolition of slavery rather than for the restoration of the Union, and have already commenced the work of dismissing all conservative Generals from their commands in the army, so as to get the army under abolition control, we suggest that they also dismiss the conservative soldiers from the ranks and that Greeley's 900,000 abolitionists be called into the field at once.

Greeley promised the President 900,000 abolition soldiers if he would issue an emancipation proclamation. "Old Abe" complied with Greeley's request and now we want Greeley to fulfil [sic] his part of the contract. We want him to trot out his 900,000 abolitionists minus the man that enlisted from Boston some time ago, leaving a balance of 899,999 for Greeley to furnish yet.

The men being furnished, we suggest to the President to appoint Greeley Commander-in-Chief with the rank of Lieutenant General. The different corps and division commanders to consist of such military geniuses as Wilson, Wade, Stevens, Lovejoy and "blood-letting" Chandler.

The reserve corps of this grand army we want placed under the command of the citizen of this place, who was at the battle of Antietam and saw just where Gen. McClellan made the mistake which enabled the rebel army to escape being "bagged." His extensive knowledge of military tactics would enable him to detect any blunder which Lieutenant-General Greeley might make in any future engagement and retrieve the fortunes of the day by leading his corps into the breach.

Sumner we would assign to the command of a negro corps, division or brigade as the case may be. The size of his command will depend upon the number of "darkies" he can get to enlist. In this department of the service we would earnestly demand a place for our neighbor of the Dispatch. He might be authorized to recruit a company of the "sable sons of Africa" from among the "denizens of Wolffstown." This would no doubt diminish "Um's rent" somewhat, but being a patriotic man, the old gentleman would willingly sacrifice something for the good of the country. His company being mustered into Sumner's command, our neighbor would stand an excellent chance for promotion among his "colored brederen" whose cause he has served so long and faithfully.

With this magnificent army in the field, backed up by "Old Abe's" proclamation, "secesh" would certainly have to "go under." We hope father Abraham will see to it that Greeley don't back out of his part of the contract.

The Next Governor
(Column 3)
Summary: The editors relay a report that the Democrats of Lancaster County are pushing George Sanderson as a candidate for Governor. The editors report positively on Sanderson's "enviable reputation" and his "extensive knowledge of public affairs, a calm, even temper, and a moral courage that would withstand any odds or influence."
General H. W. Halleck
(Column 3)
Summary: The writer attacks General Halleck for his criticism of McClellan, noting that McClellan had come to Halleck's aid when Sumner criticized his conduct in Missouri. In addition, the writer notes that it is hypocritical of Halleck to criticize McClellan's slowness to move, as it took Halleck two months to move the 12 miles from Shiloh to Corinth.
Origin of Article: Pottsville Standard
From Washington
(Column 5)
Summary: The writer reports rumors in Washington that General Lee has written to General Halleck regarding the emancipation proclamation, which is due to take effect on January 1. Lee is supposed to have argued first, that the "instigation of a servile war" is not discussed in any book on military tactics, and must be regarded in the same light as poisoning wells, abusing prisoners or women and children; and second, that if the proclamation is not withdrawn, any women or children murdered by "infuriated negroes" will be avenged by the execution of an equal number of Union prisoners.
Full Text of Article:

Washington, Nov. 21.

A report is current here, and very generally believed, that Gen. Lee, of the rebel army, has recently addressed a formal communication to Gen. Hallock touching the proposed issue of an emancipation proclamation on the first of January next. It will be remembered that after the exciting debates in the rebel Congress as to the propriety of retaliation, the whole matter was left to the discretion of the President of the Confederate States, with instructions to take such measures as would compel the withdrawal of the proclamation, or bring home to the northern troops some of the evil it threatens against the southern people. It is stated that Gen. Lee's letter is exceedingly elaborate, and discusses the question from every point of view. The points it is said to contain are as follows:

First, The unwarrantable nature of the proclamation, so far as the recognized measures of military warfare are concerned. The fact is pointed out that in no work on military law is the instigation of a servile war recommended, indorsed [sic] or even mentioned; that, as General Hallock himself never thought of it in discussing the various means that might be used by belligerent enemies, the threat of servile war and insurrection is clearly not a proper military procedure; that, being outside of military law, the southern people are justified in regarding it as coming under the brutal and savage expedients of a barbarous people, and resenting it as such; that the enemy that will use it does an act as unjustifiable as the poisoning of wells or of food, the maiming and murdering of prisoners, and the outrage of women. On this ground it is demanded that the proclamation be withdrawh [sic].

Second, it is further urged by Gen. Lee that in case the proclamation is not withdrawn the Confederate military authorities, sorely against their will, but strong in the justice of their position, will be compelled to retaliate in the sternest manner upon all the Union prisoners that fall into their hands. It is not specified what punishment will be inflicted, but it is distinctly intimated that if, through the instigation of the Federal troops, any women or children are murdered by infuriated negroes, an equal number of Union troops will be promptly put to death. On this matter the Confederate government wishes the Federal government to understand that it is very much in earnest, and will do even more than it threatens.

Accompanying this document, and adressed [sic] to other members of the government, it is stated that a letter from a high member of the Confederate government is now in Washington for members of the cabinet, arguing the question as to the property of rescinding the objectionable proclamation. Its addition to the military arguments urged by Gen. Lee, an argument drawn from the recent elections in the North is made use of by the Confederate statesmen. If the Union shall be restored, this document urges, it will be better not to have this gulf of blood between the North and South, and even should the South succeed in their efforts there would be fewer unpleasant memories to rankle.

Notwithstanding these communications, it is still asserted here to the proclamation, and to carry out the radical programme to the bitter end.

Notwithstanding these communications, it is still asserted here that Mr. Lincoln is determined to adhere to the proclamation, and to carry out the radical programme to the bitter end.

Full Text of Article:

On Friday morning last, a somewhat singular looking specimen of the feminine gender made her appearance in town, by way of the Western turnpike, mounted on a grey steed of venerable appearance, bearing evidence of hard service and a short allowance of provender. The lady, from her dress, general appearance and "getting up" was evidently a stranger in this section of the country. On alighting and securing her gallant grey to an awning post on Main Street, she proceeded to several of our Drug Stores and engaged extensively in the purchase of Quinine, Morphine, Opium, &c. Suspicion being excited that she was purchasing these articles for the use of Uncle Sam's enemies in the land of Dixie, she was arrested by order of Capt. Ashmead, A. Q. M., and on being searched, several hundred dollars worth of these Drugs were found concealed in secret recesses of her dress. The previous night she passed at the Tavern of Mr. Josiah Allen, three miles west of this place, where she stated that she was in search of several Horses, taken by the Rebels from her father in Virginia, and having heard that a number had been turned loose by Stuart's Cavalry, in this section she thought that she might possibly find her fathers among them. She had in her possession a Pass from General Banks dated about a year ago. We are informed by a citizen, who recognized her, that her name is Sloan, and that she resides near Winchester, Virginia. For the present, she occupies apartments in "Fort Brandt" and the Philistines across the border will shake considerable before they get that quinine.

Extensive Improvement
(Column 3)
Summary: The editors praise the recent improvement done to the newly renamed "Union Hotel" (formerly known as the "Southern Inn" until the war proved its old name "somewhat odious"). John Fisher took it over from the widowed Rebecca Fisher, and with the increasing number of patrons, added on a story to the front building and erected a large three-story building in the rear. The story in the front adds eight "spacious and well-furnished chambers." The improvements make it one of the largest Public Houses in the borough.
