The Daily Dispatch: August 14, 1862., [Electronic resource], Administering the oath. (search)
Administering the oath. Wherever the Federal power has a foothold in Northern Virginia, they are attempting to carry out the odious order of Pope requiring the citizens to take the oath to sustain the Government. In Frederick, Berkeley, Jefferson, and Clarke, and perhaps other counties on the border, proclamations were issued, fixing a day in the early part of last week for the assembling of the people at their respective county seats for that purpose. Of the result in Frederick and Berk and Berkeley we have not heard, but learn that in Clarke and Jefferson not one man was found so bankrupt in character as to respond to the summons of Lincoln's unprincipled agents. In Jefferson they were required to appear at the Methodist Church in Charlestown, and early in the morning the Commandant of the Post and two Lieutenants repaired to the Church, where they remained until night, when the books were closed without the name of a single disloyal Virginian being registered upon them.
