The War Excitement
When Fort Sumpter was attacked
by the Secessionists, little did we think
that it would be captured by those re
bellious citizens, and become their
place of rendezvous. But alas it was
so; and when the intelligence that
Sumpter was on fire, and would soon
belong to the traitors, was received
here on Sunday, April 14th, it was
disbelieved by some, while others
heard it, and were greatly incensed.
From that eventfifi epoch, when the
first blow was struck by the rebels,
and was successful, our little borough
has been in ono continual state of ex
citement, and some are closing their
business in order to join the compa
nies that are now organizing, and
waiting to be called on, to serve their
country, and defend the Flag which
has been thus ruthlessly assailed.—
Meetings have been held, and patriot
ic men have stood up before the peo
ple, beseeching them to " preserve,
protect and defend the Constitution of
these United States."
Already has one company gone to
Harrisburg, and others are still in
town, waiting for the next demand,
who are all true patriots and Union
loving citizens. There is also a com
pany, composed of members who are
over the required age, and those who
have large families, being unable to
tight in the army, who have organized
themselves into a Home Guard, in
order to defend our community,against
the assaults of the Secessionists of the
Border States. But we hope to God,
that they never will have the cause to
strike one blow against the Southern
Flags can be seen waving in every
street, and a tri-colored (red, white
and blue,) rosette, adorns not only the
person of a gentleman, but also that
of the ladies, designating that they
also are for the Union.
If Huntingdon has not been repre
sented in the army, in large numbers,
like some other towns, she is, never
theless, not less loyal to the cause.—
There is not a heart in the borough
which does not beat in response to the
cry, " The Union forever."
31 . ..ttcort HILL, April 26, 1861.
FRIEND LEWIS :—As War and ru
mors of War, is all the cry, it becomes
all loyal citizens to be up and doing;
we, here, in a quiet part of the old
commonwealth, are now in a tumult;
everybody talks of war, and thinks
scarcely of anything else; our whole
valley is now arming. and forming
companies both for War and home
One of the largest meetings of citi
zens, that ever was held iu this
was held at McAlevy's Fort, on Thurs
day. The meeting was ably addressed
and enthusiastically responded to by
The Jackson Artillery are now
ready for service, and are waiting
marching orders; two other compa
nies were partly formed as Home
Guards, one of them composed of men
over 45 years, and the other from 18
to 45 years, the former enlisted 47 the
first day, and the latter 57 men.
The whole town was covered with
Stars and Stripes, the ladies were in
attendance in great numbers, and ap
peared to care for nothing but the de
fence of our once glorious country. The
staid men of the valley, subscribed
liberally for the support of the wives
and families, and formed themselves
into committees to attend to their sev
eral wants, as soon as our soldiers are
called to duty, so you see we are all
ready and loyal, for any emergency
that may come upon us. If all are
called that want to go to the army,
our valley will be nearly destitute of
men to perform necessary labor at
home, as we don't know a man in our
valley, but would leave all, and go for
the defence of the country. We are
informed that our citizens have been
misrepresented in the ancient borough,
as not being loyal to their Flag.—
Those representing such to be the case,
had better never come across the War
The grain looks well and promises a
bounteous harvest, but fears are enter
tained that the laborers will be few,
yet we have one resource left us. The
ladies obligate themselves to help gath
er the harvest, so our soldiers may not
want for bread.
We are pleased to hear that our
friend A. P. Wilson Esq. is now form
ing a company of horse, and is likely
to be successful ; if he lacks for men, I
think he might call on our valley, as
there is still a few more left. We are
pleased to hear that the citizens of the
Ancient Borough are up and doing.—
Certainly nothing but a glorious vic
tory must crown our arms, and peace
again be hailed throughout the Union.
Fearing my scroll may occupy too
much of your time, I close.
MARKLESBURG, April 23, 1861
FRIEND TYRURST : Hoping to favor
you with a detail of affairs from our
thriving little town, I now proceed to
the same pleasing task.
Mechanical and mercantile business
seems to decrease. In'fact everybody
both in town and country, with but
few exceptions, seem to giow negli
gent concerning their domestic affairs,
and the only obvious cause of this is,
the "cry of war."
On yesterday, it was my privilege
to visit Coffee Run to witness some
thing I never witnessed before. It
was the raising' of the emblem of our
National ' Confederacy—the "STAR
SPANGLED BANNER." After the
flag was raised, I listened to an ad
dress delivered by Mr. I. B. Shouts,
who acquitted himself most admirably.
I hope every young man like Mr.
Shontz, will stand up for his country,
and kindle a flame of patriotic love
where it does not already exist. Our
young and old men are all ready for
war. Some have already gone, and
others are making ready to start.—
Strong talk is afloat now, that a com
pany will be raised in our town. A.
G. Neff, a very reliable man, is sup
posed to become the captain. Lot him
come, and your humble correspondent
will enrol his name amongst the first.
Let the work go bravely on and vic
tory will be ours. More anon.
UNITY, IiendOTSOR Twp.,
April 28, 1801.
Mn. EDITOR :—As I see no communi
cation from this township, I have con
cluded to send you a few items of
news. There is nothing thought of
or talked of but war. We held two
Union meetings last week at the Union
school house, on Wednesday and Fri
day evenings last. On Friday evening
Mrs. John - Warfel presented a beauti
ful flag to the meeting, in honor of the
brave,fellows who have left the town
ship to help fight our country's battles.
The meeting resolved to have it hoisted
on the hickory tree, in front of the
Unity church, at four o'clock on Satur
day evening 27th inst. At about half
past threo on Saturday, people, of all
sizes and ages began to gather at the
church, and by the time the committee,
appointed for the purpose, were ready
to run the flag up, the yard in front of
the church was crowded with ladies
and gentlemen, and when it was flung
to the breeze, it was received with
three hearty cheers. Speeches were
then made by S. Silknitter, John Meit
ner, J. It. McCartney and others. The
people then dispersed; some went to
the Wrest school house to another flag
raising, and the remainder went to the
Union school house to attend a tem
There is to be another Union meet
ing at the Union school house on Tues
day night. • Wo are organizing a com
pany for home protection, to be called
the " Lick Ridge Rangers." I think
we will elect our officers to-morrow
night. Nothing more at present; if
agreeable you will hear from me again.
HARTSLOG VALLEY, April 29.
DEAR GLOI3E :—On last Friday eve
ning (April 26th;) we had the pleasure
of attending a very large and enthu
siastic Union meeting at Knode's School
House, in Hartslog Valley. The meet
ing was organized by calling Col. John
Huyett to the chair, and electing John
A. Whittaker Secretary.
After the organization of the meet
patriotic speeches were delivered
by J. 11. 0. Corbin, John Bailey, John
A. Whittaker and others.
It was indeed a patriotic meeting,
if we may judge by the enthusiasm
that was manifested by the union-lov
ing citizens of our Valley. There is a
determination on the part of our good
citizens to stand by the " Stars and
Stripes" at all hazards.
We have organized a Home Guard,
which numbers over 60 members, and
in case our services arc needed, we are
ready and willing to march anywhere
under the " Stars and Stripes," and
" keep step to the music of the Union."
