If indeed he was approaching—and on the morrow

na a hattallion of over five hundred men, unde'
caeaneand of Lieut. Col. Stink, of the late 125th
Regiment. Tbe advance of these .were
on the IMi to McGee’s Gap, where breast work'
were already begun by workmen who had been
sent in advance. On the 17th these men labored
all day oo these troths, and at night started for a
farther march, and were joined not only by the re
mainder of their own hattallion, bat by an equal
number from HolUdayabnrg, Tyrone jind othei
parts, of the county, (another portion of the Holli
dayabmg men having been sent to Pattonaville.)
making one thousand strong, which nttfe joined.on
the 18th by six hundred men from Johnstown, un
der Col. McCartney.
With these after throwing up some earthwork,
at Ake’s Mills, in Bedford county—the march wa,
resumed on the evening of the 19th for Bedford
and Bloody Bon. The former place was rescued
the same night, and on the morrow this hastily
gotten up force joined Gen.Milroy at Bloody Run
Hen, after a speech from Gen. Milfby, the Aitoon,
BatptllTon left the array of Cambria and Blai
and took op their line of march for McConnell
burg in Pulton county, which place they reachet
at now on tbe 22d, and immediately proceeded t<
take pnmession of the mountain passes East oi
that place, through which the Chambersbmg and
Meicmahnrg pikes pass. Here, the - men having
traveled so for and u yet having seen no rebs,
began to feel ffiat all was a hoax, and ’ being un
organised began to drop off for home, 1 singly and
in squads, until not oyer one hundred and twenty
of that “ proud army” remained. Here this hand
fill lay holding these two 'points, three miles apart,
null the evening of the 24th, when a rebel forct
numbering not less than three thousand, consisting
of cavaliy,lnfantty and artillery, advanced upon
them. Being oatnorabereffand “our flanked,’
discretion was eonridAb tbe better part of valor,”
and the militia retired, not in panic, but in good
order, bringing off their wagons and substance,
which was very nearly being captured by being in
advance and taking the wrong road, having to
return through tbe lower part of the town while
tbe rebs were in the upper part. Thus the fore,
whichHarted out, five hundred strong, returned
by way of Mount Union, after ten days active ser
vice-able to bear but one hundred muskets.
Horvibla atoriaa have been told about the attacks
made by this artgy upon hen-roosts and spring
hnnatWi bat as a general thing they aw amine.
It is a fact, that part of oar way seemed to lie
hi an enemy’s land, and the boy* did capture
some contraband chickens which they say with
rebal ingiatitiide attempted to bite them. Perhaps
aomefow Union men suffered, bat tot judge they
mmsjffop. They'd forgive the militia.
it would be but an act of justice to uy here
tint an independent company, led by Captain
Wallace of Huntingdon, and some 10 or 12 of the
twelfth qtralry, led by Capt. Hartman of thisplace,
did some efficient skirmishing a mile of two, above
MeCoanebbotg where twoofthe twelfth and a vol

Tan Nonox.—We take the following extract
from a letter from-our Washington corespondent.
Let those who have friends in the Potomac afmr
read it, and be careful of all sharks. j6f course
our correspondent is booked up in the matter;
In your last week’s paper I notice the adver
tisement of a certain indieidnai in this' city .who
proposes to give to friend* at homeinformafion
by letter, of their friends or relatives in the Army
of the Potomac or in anyof the army Hospitals,
by enclosing! him one dollar. Let me kindly
caution your readers against all each gyli-tra/u.
I made special inquiry in reference to this matter
at the office of the Sanitary Commission here, land
they.kindly informed me that they knew nothing
of this party, and that this is intended to be a
swindling operation, to d-ceive the ignorant, and
if he answers letters at all he wonld be likely to
go to the Books of the Sanitary Commission
for information. If yon want information in re
gard to any sick or wounded soldier in any Hos
pital in this Department yon will get it gratui
tously (without even enclosing a stamp): by
addressing “ office Sanitaty Commission, ’’ Wash
ington, D. C.
The Draft.— From numerous correspondents
of tbe press in Washington, we leSm (hat it has
been determined that, whjle all persons coming
within the provisions of the act of enrollment for
calling out tbe national forces are to be enrolled,
nevertheless, under the first enrollment,!those Who
were in the militaiy service at tbe time the aci
went into effect, namely, the 3d of March last, are
not to be included in that class which is subject to
the first draft. Those of, the second class are not
to be included ih that class which is snhjcct to the
first draft. Those of the second class-are not to
be called out until those of the first class shall
have been exliaustcd. This .second class will in
clude the returned nine months volunteers, who
were in service on the third of March last, and,
consequently, will not be called on until thfrjfirst
class shall have been reduced to that minimum
which will require another draft by this national
The Situation.
The absence of the*emire force of printers, with
one exception, rendered it impossible for us to
issue a paper within the past three weeks. The
loss, however, is to ourselves and not to our sub
scribers, as we have to make up all the lost Uum
iers. Considering the circumstances which called
>ur hands into the military ranks, we feel; sure
hat our subscribers will freely forgive us.
To attempt to give^ i faithful account of the
scenes enacted and the universal excitement of the
last three weeks, is ont of the question at this
time. They would fill a book. With them, our
readers are generally as well acquainted as our
selves, therefore we will not repeat them, but con
fine our reports to the latest news from the grand
armies of the Union and rebellion, lately, and
prohably at this time, engaged in a dreadful con
flict on Pennsylvania and Maryland roil. The
following vye take form the papers .of .this (Mon
day) morning: ~
Gettysburg, Friday, Jnly S, 1868.
The third day’s battle began this morning at ,4
o'clock. The fight was commenced by the rebels
on our right. The fight there has beennnqeasing,
mil the irregularity of the fire—slack and scatter
ing for awhile, and then heavy and continuous—
indicates reinforcements on both sides.
Sixteen hundred prisoners thus far during the
engagement have been sent to the rear, and more
are here.
Important dispatches have been captured by
Capt. Dahlgren and Kline, the gallant scout, from
Jeff Davis and Cooper to Gen. Lee. They indi
cate anxiqty for the safety of Richmond. Both
decline to send Lee the reinforcements from Beau
regard which be asked for.
Hamoveb, Friday, Julyfi, 18fi3.
The most terrific fights of the war has taken
place. Our men stood np heroically. To-day
was the mart awful of all. The lota on both
rides has been tremendous. The rebel Generals
Longstreet and Barksdale were mortally wounded
and have since died.
The fight raged furiously till ten o’clock last
night. We took Gettysburg, occupying: two-thiids
of the field—the rebels the other third.
Gen. Sickles was wounded about 5 o’clock, in
the right leg, which was subsequently amputated.
He is doing well.
Gen. Meade says that the ttoops are in excellent
spirits and eager for the battle.
On Wednesday’s battle, Gen. Meade says, the
enemy far out-numbered os on tbs; field, but that
onr men behaved admirably, and that ;the battle
was one of the hardest fought actions of the war.
The authorities have the names; as we are in
formed, of ten citizens of Carlisle, Fa., who out
traitored traitors in abasing themselves before the
Rebel Gen. Jenkins. They assured him that they
were friends to the Southern Confederacy, and
begged, him to parole them, that they might not
be drafted to fight against it. Gen. Jenkins wel
comed them to his bosom, but remarked that, since
they were such friends to the Southern cause, tiny
were of course willing to fight for it, and actually
put some of them into his ranks! I Before the joke
was played fhrougn they began to repent of their
truculent cowardice, and beg off; when the rebel
General informed them that such men in the South
would be shot, without judge or jury.

We have just received intelligence, purporting

The Braider.
The Braider is used for laying cord or narrow
braid upon any fabric. The work resembles em
brodiety and is popular for ornamenting children’s
clothes, morning dresses, slippers, caps, ect.
How are oob Dresses to be Maße ? — A
contemporary answers the foregoing question in
the following lively manner:—“ By a sewing
machine, of coarse. We trust that the day is
over in which needle drudgery sets a feeble op
position to the musical click of tbe Wheeler &
Wilson machine. A lady who says she docs not
know how to use a sewing machine, is looked
upon with as much distrust as a lady who says
she .don’t like babies? Side by side, in every
home, we see the piano amt sowing machine.—■
Of cou/se. i>eople have a right to their perforenccs,
but give us the merry little musician whose crys
tal eye ana silver tongue not only fill the ear with
melody, but set the pulses of life and health throb
bing anew in the weary beans of a million
women. Is it not better than all the pianos ever
turned ? Some of the newest improvements to the
Wheeler & Wilson. machine, are the Binder,
Braider and Corder, all of which ' ladies find in
dispensable. The Braider is particularly appro
priate to the present mania for decorating every
thing with braid “Ido not know what we
should da without the Wheeler & Wilson Braider,”
said the director of one of our fashionable man
tilla establishments, when we inquire how those
tasteful labyrinths of braid were laid on, and his
words are echoed in event home in the land.—
Really, we scarcely know which blessing to wish
our young lady friends—a Wheeler & Wilson
machine or a husband Wc rather incline to the
former, for they can exist minus the matrimonial
alliance, bat can't do without a sewing machine.
What do yon say, girls?”
R. O. A. Kerr, Agent.
How the Rebels are Taxed in the
If any one in the North is dissatisfied with his
taxes, he should go to die South, the country
which is called “ the only remaining home of
liberty on this continent.” The Richmond .Senti
nel of the 25th of May publishes in full the tax
act of the rebel Congress. The various parts are
condensed below : “The first section levies a tax
of eight per cent, on the ‘ value of all naval stores,
salt, wines, spirituous liquors, tobacco manufac
tured or unmanufactured, cotton, wool, flour,
sugar, molasses, syrups, rice and other agricul
tural productions.’ Bankers are- taxed $500;
auctioneers $5O, and 2} per cent, on their gross
amount of their sales; wholesale liquor dealers
are tailed $2OO and 6 per cent, on their gross
sales; retail liquor dealers pay $lOO and 10 per
cent, of gross sales; distillers pay $2OO and 20
per cent, of gross sti^s; hotels and eating-houses
pay according to the yearly rental of their pro
perty, from $€OJ a year down to $3O; theatres pay
$5OO and 6 per cent, of gross receipts ; tobac
conists pay $5O andj> per cent, of gross sales;
billiard rooms pay $lO for each table; bmchers
and bakers pay sso and 2} per cent, of sales;
photographers, lawyers, apothecaries, doctors and
confectioners pay $5O each, with a tax on all but
lawyers and doctors of per cent, of sales. In
comes are taxed as follows: over $5OO and un
der $l,OOO a year; 5 percent.; over $1,500 and less
than $3,000 a year, 5 percent, on the first $1,500
and 10 per cent, on the rest; over $3,000 and
less than $5,000, 10 per cent; over $5,000 and
less than $1(),000, 12j percent.; over 10,000, 15
per cent."
Farmers are taxed savagely. We copy the
provision verbntnm: “Sxc. 11." Each farmer and
planter in the Confederate States, after reserving
for his own use fiftv bushels of sweet potatoes
and fifty bushels of Irish potatoes, one hundred
bushels*of corn and fifty bushels of wheat produced
in the present year, shill pay and deliver to the
Confederate government* of the products of the
present year, one tenth Ofthe wheat, corn, oats,
rye, buckwheat, or rice, sweet and Irish potatoes,
. and of the ’enred hay and fodder; also one tenth
of the sugar molasses made of cane, cotton, wool
and tobacco; the dotton ginned and pocked in
some secure manner, and tobacco shipped and
packed in boxes,, to be delivered by him on or
before the first day of March in the next year.—
Each fanner or planter, after reserving ’twenty
bushels of peas or beans, bnt not more than
twenty bushels of both, for their own use, shall
deliver to the Confederate government, foctits use,
one tenth of the peas oeans,and ground peas p>ro
duced and gathered, by him during the present
Enrolling Officer Shot.— David Cathcart,
enrolling officer for Knox township, Clearfield
county, was shot the other day, and dangerously
wounded. It seems as he' was riding along the
road, andharing just passed a thicket of pines,
' some concealed and cowardly wretch shot him,
the ball taking effifot in the heel and lodging in
the from part of the foot, where it still remains.
This quickly followed by another, which struck the
horse on the front leg, cutting it severely. Ihe
horse on being shot. Jumped ilnd threw Mr. Cath-,
cart off, and he remained iytng on the road until
some of the neighbors came along, who caught the
horse and assisted Mr. C. in reaching his home.
The wound inflicted on Mr. Cathcart is a severe ,
one, and, it is (hid, the old man is in rather a"
critical condition, and may loss his foot if not his !
own Interest*. —The snbscriber would respect
fully announce to the public that he has returned
from the East with his large and well assorted
stock of goods, bought at the lowest cash prices,
which he will dispose of at his usual small advance.
“ The nimble dime better than the slow dollar.'*
... Come one, cOmC all and be convinced that the
cash system is to your advantage, and you will go
away with the resolve that my establishment is
the place to save money. No charge for showing
goods. Call and examine.
I would respectfully invite your attention to my
well selected assortment of Ladies and Misses'
Dry Goods, containing all the late and most de
sirable styles of dresses* to be found in the Eastern
markets, among which may be had, Mozambiqnes,
Celliques, Killamay Checks, Union Checks,
Shepertls Plads, Linen Lustres, Silk Poplins, a
'full and complete stock of fancy and plain Flannels
and Shirtings, Linen, Muslin, Ladies and Gents
Gloves and Hosiery, and a tremendous stock of
Austin Kelly & Co’s Patent Hoop Sfirts, from
four to fifty springs, which I Can sell at least 25
per cent, below Philadelphia retail prices. Also a
great variety of Cloaking Cloths, varying in price
fom 75 cts to $2,26 per yard, and the largest as
sortment of Casaimers Sattinetts Tweeds, Jeans,
ect., that is to be found in the country.
Carpeting and oil cloths in great variety at
lowest prices.
LOOK.—My stock of groceries are selling a few
cents below my would-be-rivals, who “can’t see
it.” The cash system syhips still range from 40
to 70 cts. per gallon. Government coffee, bought
before the late late heavy advances, I am selling at
22 cts per ponnd. It is superior to all the new
fangled substitutes now selling.
BEHOLD.—Our teas range from the low price
of 60 eta. per pound, upwards.
EXCELSIOR.—Our would-be-competitors
stand aghast when they know we have the heaviest'
and best assorted stock of crockery, china, glass
and dclph ware to be found in any establishment
between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, and that wc
sell cheaper than-they can buy. “ They are
superb,” is the common exclamation on examin
ing our China Tea Sets, ranging in price from
$l2 to $2O, which is lower than they can be pur
chased in Pittsburgh. We are selling to people
from all the surrounding counties, because wc
keep a large stock from which to select, and sell
> h.'ap. One examination will suffice to convince
any one that we are not puffing our goods.
All kinds of ornamental dower vases, mugs,
glassware, and in fact all kinds of crockery ever
imagined, we keep on hand. We arc still selling
the celebrated Wcdgewood Iron Stone Sets for
$5.00, which is 25 cts. cheaper than they can be
bought for in Philadelphia or Pittsburg retail
'' l cant see how it is done?” is the querv.
Well, wo will tell you the secret—it is cash onty.
By this means I am enabled to increase rav busi
ness and stock steadily, while other establishments
are glad to decrease theirs. We are not com
lielled to add large profits to make np for losses by
bad d jbts, and we save by paying cash for goods
instead of buying on time and paying a higher
FATHERS & MOTHERS.—Our stock of
children's carriages and coaches are just the thing
for those who value the health of their children
more than the small amount we charge for them.
Those who use a carriage once will never go back
to the old-fashioned way of dragging children
around in their arms. Call and see our stock of
infant carnages and cabs.
Wheeler & Wilson’s Sewing Machine, of which
I am the .sole Agent for Blair and Huntingdon
counties, are the best machines ever used. They
are perfect and warranted for two years. Ido not
ask you to buy unless you are satisfied you are sa
ving money by so doing.
