The Draft for Dauphin County:

Its Success and Its Incidents

Source:  The Evening Telegraph, Harrisburg, August 10, 11, and 12, 1863

Transcribed by Shirley Pierce

The conscription for Dauphin county was commenced this morning, by Marshal Clement, assisted by his associates in the board of enrollment.  An immense staging had been erected immediately in front of the Court House, where "the wheel of fortune" was put into operation, and as name after name of those drafted was drawn from the "box," the crowd assembled gave vent to cheers, while such of the drafted as were present received the congratulation with a grace which showed at least the acquiescence the law receives at the hands of orderly and loyal men.  Indeed the good humor and decorum which prevailed during the entire proceeding of the draft to-day, is as much due to the decency, patriotism and intelligence of the people of Dauphin county, as it is to any vigor, efficiency or preparation on the part of those engaged in this delicate business.  

Thus far, the Telegraph office has been severely conscripted.  Our chief clerk W. H. H. Sl-g, the foreman, respectively, in the job and newspaper composing rooms, Samuel Strock and Martin V. Stevens, Jos. L. Buffington, foreman of the press room -- are among the lucky holders of the magic "envelope."  Thomas B. Nolan, Thomas Forster (late of the 127th) and Frederick Scott, carrier of the Telegraph, have also received complimentary tickets.  

Philip Ensminger, esq., a blind man, was blindfolded and drew the names from the wheel.  Mesrs. Geo. J. Shoemaker and Wm. Bergstresser, Democrats, and John J. Shoemaker, and Aaron Bombaugh, Republicans, occupied seats on the platform, by invitation, to see that every thing was conducted fairly.  

Below we give the names of the drafted up to the hour of our going to press:

 All the Prizes allowed to this County Drawn.

The remainder of the tickets allowed this county in the grand lottery, which took place in front of the Court House, commencing last Monday, were drawn to-day.  For the information of many who invested in this brilliant scheme, and drew prizes, we will state that, should any holder of a ticket not prefer to give $300 for a "sub," he will receive the following articles GRATIS -- no Internal Revenue stamps being required:  

1 new, highly finished musket;

1 bran new suit of clothes, with blue, yellow or red trimmings – whichever he may prefer;

1 pair shoes and stockings;

1 elegant blanket;

1 nice haversack and knapsack;

1 nice cartridge box, with 60 rounds of ammunition;

1 nice tin plate, tin cup, knife, fork and spoon.  

In addition to these the holder of the lucky number will have a regular income of $13 per month, and "when this cruel war is over," will receive a capital prize of $100.

Legalized by Act of Congress, approved March 3d, 1863.  

All prizes cashed by the Provost Marshal of this district.

The time for the distribution of the articles above mentioned will be duly announced, and those who drew prizes will be notified of the fact by private letters.  

With such liberal inducements the managers have been largely patronized by an appreciating public, who found that this was no humbug, catch-penny institution, but a genuine lottery, in which the managers are bound to fulfill all they promise.  

The following named individuals residing in the Middle, South and North wards of the borough of Middletown, the townships of Mifflin, Lower Paxton, Middle Paxton, Upper Paxton, the borough of Millersburg, townships of Reed, Rush, Swatara, Lower Swatara, Susquehanna, Washington and Wiconisco, were announced as ticket holders in the lottery to-day.
