Troops ex Route.— On Saturday last, tbe
Second Regiment from Wisconsin passed thro’
this place en rooto for Washington City. It
numbered 1,050 men, under command of Col. S.
Park Cook. They were uniformed in substan
tial gray cloth suits, with knapsacks, haver
sacks, and fatigue caps complete. This regi
ment was organized from the most stalwart men
of the Badger State, must of them being from
tbe mining and lumbering regions, and well
able to bear fatigue and privations. They arc
well disciplined.
On t Tuesday morning, tire First Regiment
from Jilinnesota passed East over the Peun’a R.
11., enj route for Washington city. They were
a beai|hy looking body of men, such as wo
might (expect to find on the frontiers. Some of
them looked as* if there might bo more Indian
than Anglo-Saocon in their composition. They
were uniformed in good light-blue cloth suits,
with arms and all necessary camp equipage.—
Tbe regiment numbered near fifteen hundred
Tub Foceth. —There has been no regular
. programme of operations adopted for tbe cele
bration of the glorious Fourth in this place. So
far as we ate advised, the arrangements are as
follows:—Our Catholic citizens connected with
dt. John’s Church will celebrate the day in
McCartney’s woods adjoining town. The Ger
man Catholics will hold a celebration in Beales"
woods. A social party, composed of quite a.
number of families of the place, will spend the
Jaj in theV grove adjoining West Ward School
property. The scholars connected with the
public schools, and their friends, will spend the
Jay in a grove adjoining town. Those not in
either of the above rings will spend the day as
beat suits them. Divine service, appropriate
to the occasion, will be held in St. Luke’s ppis
copal Church, at 8 o’clock A. M. of the Fourth.
Catholic Celebration. —Wc understand that
the Catholic portion of our citizens intend cele
brating the coming Fourth in their usual man
ner. If ec tie rightly informed, the committee
ha?o this year selected McCartney’s Woods, at
the West end of Loadonsville, for the occasion,
lie ladies are making extensive preparations
to have plenty of the nice and good things of
the season. Those who wish for fun and frolic
on the Glorious Fourth will find all in McCart
ney’s Woods on that day.
Uo to ahe Corner.—Go the corner of Main
»aJ Annie streets if you wish to get a' supply of
fire-crackers, of every description, with which
(o celebrate the coming Fourth. Also,-if you
wish choice confectioneries, good segars and
tobacco, letter or note paper, nationally plain,
envelopes of all kinds. Also, a fresh,stock of
lemons, oranges, &c.. just received. Go to
Clabaugh’s, on the corner, if you wish nice
tbipgs for the Fourth, or any other time, i'ou’ll
gel the worth of your money there.
ArroinitD.—We are pleased to learn that
cur young friend, P. T. Keys, has been np
pointed a First Lieutenant in the regular army,
and assigned a position in the IGth Regiment
'•f Infantry, tire rendezvous of which is at Chi
cago. We understand that Pat. leaves for Chi
cago this week. He will make a good looking,
popular and.brave officer. Success attend him.

I Important and Interesting from Har
per’s Ferry.
A special correspondent .of the Washington
j Star under,date of June 20th, gives the following
account of the finishing pp of things at Har
per’s Ferry:
iesterday,(Wednesday)afternoou, at 3 o’clock,
| 1 crossed over to Harper's! Ferry, and found
1 every thing prettymnch as the Secession troops
j had left it. Such a scene of utter desolation
; and destruction never before met my eyes. I
| retained back to Sandy liook, one mile below
; Harper's Ferry, on the Maryland side of the
| Potomac, to rest for the night. After an early
: breakfast I returned to the Maryland end of
I I*l® Harper’s Ferry bridge over the Poto
j mac, and ascended the mountain heights there, j
! the condition of the works on that I
j B ‘ d « the enemy had abandoned. At C A.M. 1 !
discovered a picket or advance mounted guard j
of about a dozen wending their way into Uar- |
per’s Perry dowu the Charlstown road. j
After making a,: circle through the town, they
returned out upon, the Charlestown road; anil
in an hour afterwards I saw a force of about
three hundred foot and sixty horses enter the
town by the same road. On their appearance
on the outskirts of the town there Was a gener
al stampede of the citizens who had remained
there or ventured to return there after its late |
evacuation by General Johnson’s array. They j
mostly rushed into the river and made for the
Maryland shore by wading and swimming.—
Some put off in small boats. The Secession
troops hurried to tho water’s edge after them,
and fired at tho poor defenceless creatures so
lung as any of them were in lange of their
pieces. Not one of them, (abbut fifty in num
ber,) however, was cither killed or wounded.
The disunion troops immediately afterwards
recommenced tho work of destruction. I saw
them set fire to the fine bridge over theShcnan
doah—a costly uncovered structure, built about
two years ago. They completely destroyed it,
though it all ou Virginia soil. They next
went to the Potomac (Baltimore and Ohio Kail
road) bridge aiid threw into the river a fine and
very large 'locomotive, that had been left (bo»
cause too large to be carried off upon the Win
chester Railroad,) when Johnson’s army retreat
ed, oii the only span of tho bridge work that
was not burned'on the morning of the evacua-
being an iron span, it will be recollect
ed. They accomplished, that work of destruc
tion—throwing the locomotive into the river—
by the use of crowbars, So. They next arrest
ed Mr. E. 11. Chambers, surrounding his house
and ordering him to surrender; whicii .be re- !
fused to do. An order was then given to shoot i
him; and then he surrounded and wag taken off
on horseback, without eved permitting him to i
get his hat. ■ ' ■ |
They next wont to tho residence of Nat Alii- i
son, and arrested him, pretty much in the same i
way, and. afterwards Mr. John Chatman, Arm- j
stead Roderick, .Adam Ralemau, and Mr. Abram '
Herr, who owns and carries on tho great flour- ■
iug mills there. All these gentlemen are high
ly respectable citizens and strong Unionists.—
In all, they arrested and hurried off about
twelve. They next went to the Hall’s Rifle
Works and removed the gunstocks that had !
been left there understroyed; they were worth
about $25,000; and it was understood they were
preparing to send them to Richmond via tho
Winchester Railroad. I remained watching
them, from the mountain, until 1 P. M., .up to
which time they were engaged in securing the
gunstocks and had fired one of the rifle shops 1
- before I left my position.
from some of tho citizens who escaped their
clutches by swimming the Potomac 1 learned
that they avowed that they bad orders to burn
every house ic the town ou which a Union flag
was-found hoisted; and also to barn the bridge
and all the remainiu,? rifle and arm works.
I teamed from the svimmer, that Johnson's
army is understood at Harper’s Ferry to have
’gone in different directions; a portion remain
ing at Bunker Hill, eighteen miles from Harper’s-
Ferry and nine miles from Charlestown; some

going further down towards Manassas; soine
stretching along between Charlestown, Winches
ter, and in the direction of Martinsburg; an
other portion was said to have gone to Romney.
That our readers my see how the recruiting
service was conducted-some sixty years ago,
and the spirit which animated the soldier at
that time, we copy herewith an article from the
A T ew Jersey Gazette, of July 30th, ! 1798, This
old valumne contains many curious articles and
advertisements, but probably none more curious
or appropos 10 the times, than the following:
The undersigned, recruiting sergeant to the
honorable ensign Boote, of the brave and glori
ous third United States regiment of the infant
ry, begs leave to hare the honor of informing
tueyouth of New Jersey in general, and the
lads cf the counties of Middlesex and Somerset
in particular, that the .rendezvous is still con
tinued at New Brundswick, for thej reception of j
such young fellows of spirit as :may wish to
acquire the erect attitude, manly! deportment,
genteel address and warlikd whiskered phiz of
■a regular continental toldier. Nothing need be
advanced to induce theyuung men Who,disdain
ing on inactive life, and nobly preferring a
musket to inglorious rustic implements, have
served a campaign with credit to themselves nmT
commanders, to re-enter'the service, when they
learn that they will he commanded by the brave
Gen. Washington. To those heroes who have
never seen the- world, or heard the inspiring i
heart cheering sound of the drum and trumpet, i
he begs leave to address a few words.! I
Your country, lay boys, is threatened’ with
invasion! Tone homes and farms with tire,
plunder and pillage! and your wives and sweet
hearts with ravishment and assassination by
horrid outlandish sans-eulotte Frenchmen ! The
time is now arrived when every man must con
vert his ploughshares'into swords and his pru
ning hooks into spears, or bo torn limb from gut
and devoured alive by blood-thirsty ferocious
cannibals. t
But you will say, why mention these things
to hearts of oak, to whom the knowledge of the
critical situation of their country, with the
honor of being permitted to fight her battles,
and the glory of receiving scars in her service,
would be sufficient indikcincnt lo yally around
her standard! To arms, then, my dear brave
boys! leave your lonesome cottages, and repair
to tbe drum-head at New Brunswick, where Von,
wilt find me and my comrades (al( true soue of
thunder) prinking bowls of cool grog, to tbe
honor of Congress and dnr noble President. ;
You shall there receive a handsome Bounty, i
with five dollars a month until promoted, an i
elegant suit di'aw daily rations that ■
might tempt an epicure, and be treated with 1
kindness and attention by ' • !
Your loving friend and well-wisher,

pleasant tour West of the Alleghenies; and, haringTisited
many of jthe camps of the Western States, I thought that
perhaps 1 few military items would ho of Interest to your
readers—especially during war timos, as people want nc
thiug now hut nows of a military character to Interest
On Friday two weeks since, I left Chicago on a visit to
tU« comp at Cairo. It was tlio day of the funeral obse
quies of tho late lamented Stephen A. Dquglas of Illinois;
j and, after teeing tho imposing ceremonies, and his body
j laid In the tomb at Cottage Grove, 1 took tho State street
I ears for the Illinois Central K. R. depot, and at 6 o’clock
i was en rottte for Egypt. At a o’clock on Saturday'l nr
| rived at Cairo, and with a pass courteously tonderod by
I General Prentiss, I entered the lines. About 4,000 troops
j were encamped on the hanks of tho Ohio and Mississippi
J rivers, while five heavy batteries of 4‘J pounders and co
lumhiods command the various points from which an ene
my might approach. During Saturday a ten-inch colnm
biad was allotted and fired down tbe river, creating a heavy
report and sending a solid shot for two miles crashing
among tho trees, and (ns wo were told afterwards,) (light
ening the rebels at Colnmbiis, twenty miles below Cairn.
One night was sufficient at this point, so leaving the rough
soldiers’ hire, which our friends kindly divided with us. \
and bidding farewell to the huge mosquitoes which had j
toimented us all night, we (that is another typo and my
•elf,) left fur Springfield, the Capital. At Springfield my
ft iend left ine, sud I went up to Camp Yates, where I saw
three fine companies of tho original Ellsworth Zouaves,
ucarly every officer, of whom visited tho East with the
lamented Colonel last summer. From Camp Ynten I pro
needed to Chicago, where I found a brigade encampment
of accepted troops, numbering several thousand, who were
encamped at Cottage* Grove, opposite the lot where Judge
Douglas lies buried. These bad received orders to put
themselves at once in- readiness for marching, and among
them was a German regiment of rifles armed With sword
bayonets. Tho justly-celebrated Slurgcs Rifles, armed and
equipped through tho liberality of Cob Sturges, of Chi
cago all “crack shots”— attracted much attention.
At 7 o'clock P. AS., I left for Cleveland via. Crestline, hut
at Crestline 1 took tho C. C.iC. R. R for Camp Dennison.
Ohio, stopping for an hour at Comp Jackson, Columbus'
where 5,000 men are encamped. At 4 o’clock P. M. w e
arrived at Camp Dennison, 17 miles north of Cincinnati.
Thiacamp coven over 150 acres of land, and is situated on
a beautiful plain, surrounded by higli bills, with the little
Miami river on tho southern line. The C. C. iC. it. R.
j passes directly through the eentro of the camp, which
contains three brigades of troops under tbe command oi
Brigadier General Cox, the senior officer in command.—-
Fifteen thousand troops are quartered hero, uniformed and
well armed, and the officers are very competent, most of
them having been. In service or graduated at #est Pbiut
and this being a camp of i-tiuction, tho
pliue is p W \ . , -mtCfl. OISCI
, -«un.d. Eight nuudred men compose the
•'gimemal and picket guards, tho latter of whose lino ext
tends over two miles. Cob.DeVlUiers, a French Zonnve,
who first taught Colonel Ellsworth tho Zouave drill, is the
acting Brigade Major of tho 3d Brigade, and is said to bo
a superior drill officer. There are also about two hundred
D. S. regular troops encamped at Camp Donnison. j
Returning to Creetliuo, we took tho Ft. Wayno X. R. to
Pittsburgh, and stopped for a while at tho “Iron City” to
view the celebrated cannon foundry of Knap, Rudd A Co
Here wo saw lingo cdumbiads, heavy eight-inch mortaro
and howitzers, and piles of solid shot and shell of all cali
bres, including some of tho immense 15-inch shell used
for the great Union gnu. The foundry is in operation
day and night, and is turning out gnns very rapidly.
Pittsburgh is alive with the war spirit. Uniforms arc to
he seen on every corner of tho streets, and the noise of
tho drum and fife resounds on every aide. Camp Wilkins
(the old fair-ground,) is filling up fast, there being some
Km companies in Camp, wldlo Camp Wright, eleven miles
up tho river, has over 5,000 men ready for duty.
Twenty-two steamboatsof light draught were despatched
by Government last week, down the river-supposed des
tination, cither (ho Kanawa or this Cumberland river.—
