KinJ patrons; it is a lon£ time since we
have addressed you on the money subject,
and vre feel sure that the files of our paper
will bear us out in (he assutiou that we
have dunned less in the last three years,
than any other publishers in the country.
In fact we have but once asked, through
our paper, for money in that time. The
reason is, because we> do hot like to be
“ dunned,” consequently we do not like to
dunn others. ' But we now want money
lor a particular purpose, and if our pat
rons who are in debt for subscription, ad
vertising and job work, will pay tip, we
. ill have enough to accomplish our pur
sue, and that purpose will be beneficial
i j our subscribers and patrons as well as
ourselves. Now wo_ .don't want one ot
,ejr patrons to withhold the amount of
his indebtedness thinking that all the rest
,rill pay up and it will make no difference
-bout his mite. If this hi; the case we
r h;iil not succeed. We want all that is
due us. If our desires., are acceded to,
i ijiupil} , wo shall effect our purpose by
.the first of October, at which time we
shull extend an invitation to our patrons
that will astonish them. We arei in ear
nest, friends, and-if prou come up as you
should, we will, at tho time appointed,
show you something never before seen in
this section of the country. Your bills'
are all made, out, so there nerd: be no
delay. Wm, G.Mur
ray, of Huilidaysburg, has been authorized to
raise a regiment for the war, and desires to have
il filled as early as possible. His abilities for
the position are referred to In the communication
from liollidaysbiirg, in another column. Our
jeung friend, Pat. Walsh, is now enlisting men
lor a company styled the ‘‘Murray Guard,”
which is to bo attached to this regiment. We
should like to ace the men from Blair county,
go together in companies and regiment*, if pqs
-1 '.ole, asttc would then know bow many men
the county has furnished, and if they obtain
credit, Use county they represent will receive a
rightful share of it; Many who have enlisted
from are scattered here and there
iu companies and regiments throughout the
State, and some out of it. From all accounts,
those who went out of the State to find a regi
ment did not fare very well. Belter enlist at
i.erae, boys, under Captains and (llolonf's that
vou know. -
J®* Captain Hamilton's Cavalry Company,
v.liicU was formed in this ami Huntingdoncoun
ties, did not cater Young's Kentucky Regiment,
as was intended, but disbanded at Washington
city and the men from this county went into one
of the .companies of the District of Columbia

has been appointed Ist Lieutenant of tbe com
pany and James W. Rigg 2ii Lieutenant. Lieut,
lligg is non in this place recruiting for the com
pany and desires to obtain JO'meu. As the l)is

himself a Committee to forward to the.Counly

Messes. Editors :—We (in this community)
feel partially the effects of tho present war that
is noir agitating our Nation, in the unusual de
pression of business of all kinds. There arc, it
is true, somcdittle doing, but scaicely enough
to furnislMjmploymont to half of those in this
community whose dependence is upon their
daily labor. lam sure that, had the laboring
.men their wishes gratified, it would be that the
war would speedily end. As they look forward
to the approaching winter, their hearten#doubt
sicken at the dreary prospect now before them—
their families dependent upon them, nnd they
out of employment. May wo. not at present,
take their wish as our own, nnd heartily desire
for the speedy close of the war. ,
Watson, Deunisfph & Co.’s furnace is still in
operation, but will “blow out,” I believe, ns
soon as they have used their present stock of
material. Ido not know whether this stoppage
will be for a brief period or not, but should they
stop for any length of time it will throw out of
employment quite a number of men, whose only
dependence’is their’daily labor.
The repairs to the Chimney Rock Furnace tiro
still going ,on, and I hear it intimated that the
proprietors intend starting it. Should-they do
so, it will bo doubt make our town somewhat
more brisk. . s .
The war is tbe coiatluual topic of connersa*

vented from arriving here at that time, simply ;
because we could not do so, by reason of a s»K j
perior force arrayed against us. Now, things I
are different. This time ye were permitted to
proccol oh'our jourticy without the least resist- !
ancc. On Thursday afternoon I arrived in liar- ,
risburg and soon after joined the company, then
quartered in Camp Cameron, about It miles
from the city. This camp consisted of a fejv .
men, portions of companies, under Capt. flicks, '
another under Capt. M’Anally, also Capt. AVaynfr,
and one or two other smaller squads,-all ended- j
voriug to fill tip their respective companies be- 1
fore proceeding to Washington City. Ocr coni- i
pariy started for this place on Friday, the day ;
following. We armed in Baltimore the same I
evening about 7, o'clock. On passing through.
1 the streets, on our way to the Washington depot, |
; wc were frequently greeted with hisses, but rio '
! .attempt wps made at violence. Oneof the boys j
l allowed they were afraid to attack our company. ■
I After waiting at the, depot all night for cars, we
! were enabled to start on onr way to this great
centre of attraction about 8 o’clock on Satur
day; morning. After partaking of a soldier’s
dinner at the depot, we started to camp, which
is just nt the edge-of the city. There are none
biit Col. Biack's men here, consisting of ten ;
companies of the line and two flanking compa- |
nies, including ours, msmberingin allovcrl.lool
men. Col. Black scorns to have conceived a fa-1
vorable opinion of .tbd, “.Sharp-Shooters.” and
assures us that we shall realize our full expec-j
tation—that we shall receive, in a day or two.;
pur rifles, vrtth sword bayonets and accoutri
roents. He also says that he intends us to net
as a flanking company of skirmishers to bis re-'
| giment. So far ns lam informed in regard to
the drilling qualifications of the men here, it is
my opinion that Company M. under command
of Capt. Crozicr, is the best drilled company in
the camp.; That advantage is, perhaps, owing
to the fact that - our company is composed Of
three-mouths men. We have .already received
our blankets and Overcoats, and hourly expert
the rest of the clothing. As soon ns we are
properly equipped we expect to start for Fort
| Corcoran, about 7 miles from this place, in Vir
ginia. Vfe arc composed of a set of first-rate,
“gay and happy" fellows* and I have every
confidence in curability to do full justice to opr
patriotic calling.' Bo far as I am capable of
judging. Company M is composed of about the
■ came"material the "Juniata Rifles” were in the
three-months service—ve bad soma cowards
|M«n, and I think we have some how/ however,
time and experience will demonstrate that.
To-day -tny friend and 1 took a stroll into the
icity, and the first place wo found ourselves was
ju t the Patent Office. We were completely mye
tifiad and astonished by the rare and carious
, objects that there met our gaze, and it is useless
i to attempt a description, as w.c could neither
■ enumerate the one thousandth port of the nrti-
I cleg, nor describe any we could enumerate;
j suffice it to say, there is an abundance of ma
-1 tcrial for the most profound and contemplative
• mind for years of study.
| On Sunday last my before-mentioned friend
; and I took a walk about 3 miles out the Park
road, viewing the different encampments on the
: road, when we encountered one of our old roem
hers of the “Rifles.” He told us he was at
; Inched to a company of cavalry, from Milesburg,
: und insisted ou us accompanying him'to camp
: and partaking of his hospitality. We did so,
; Rod 1 assure you, gentlemen, we enjoyed our
i selves in truly soldierly style.

appeared on the traiu, and shook hands with j

I without taking a final farewell on earth of the 1

' sajid with a trembling voice: “We could ill af- I

from her seat, saying she Would be most happy
indeed, to know the hero of Fort Sumter. The
