' FRIEND LEWIS is amid -great

Us. EDITOR: I again seat myself to
give you and our soldier friends, the
news from this township. At the
Union Meeting at the Union School
House, on Tuesday evening of last
'week, patriotic speeches were made
by Abel .Corbin, John Flenner, J. R.
McCartney, and others. The " Lick
Ridge Rangers" then proceeded to the
election of officers. John Flenner was
elected Captain • S. R. McCartney, Ist
Lieut.; H. D. Rhodes, 2d Lieut. apt.
Renner requested the Rangers to meet
on the road opposite Mr. Geo. Miller's
for drill, on Saturday, 4th inst., at 4
o'clock, P. M. The meeting then ad
journed to meet again on Tuesday
evening, the 7th.
On Saturday, at 4 o'clock, the Ran
gers met at the appointed place, for
drill, and the manner iu which Capt.
Flenner "put us through," shows con
clusively, that he is an experienced
drill officer. About thirty or, forty
ladies graced the occasion with their
presence. After drilling about two
hours, we were marched to the West
School House, to attend a Union meet
ing. We then fired a salute in honor
of the American flag, and were dis
missed. The meeting was addressed
by Esquire Hamilton, Wm. Stewart,
Captain Flenner, and Lieut. McCart
ney. By request, the ladies sung a
National hymn. About sixteen young
men have volunteered from our town
ship, and as many more would go if
they could leave their farms.
More than eighty-four years have
elapsed since England sent her milita
ry forces to quell the spirit of indepen
dence that was rising in the hearts of
our forefathers,, who were,, at that
time, her subjects. But after great
losses and many defeats, the British
finally surrendered to our brave gen
eral and true patriot, George Wash
ington, at • Yorktown. Immediately
after this surrender, the "Declaration
of Independence" was read throughout.

your readers up in the proceedings
here. The excitement is at a tremen
dens pitch here. The

direction, and there is but one ,senti
ment among the people, and that is,
that the banner of our beloved country
and the country itself, must and *shall

men have already marched to the
scene of action, and others aro pre T

Nolonger than yesterday ourhttle
town was all excitement,, owing to a
couple of strange gentlemen who made
their appearance, and' who also were
arrested,as spies, and after examina
tion, they were.placed in the hands of
a young gentleman from this 'place to
take them down to Huntingdon for
further examination. But owing
some misunderstanding, the young man
that had charge of them lacked cour
ago and jumped off tb2 train between
this place and Marklesburg station,
and the supposed spies were left at
Marklesburg. We are sorry that the
men did not find their way to Hun
tingdon, as was intended, and we also
hope that if the 'young - gentleman is
again' entrusted with business of the
people, he will perform his duty.
Notwithstanding the great amount
of inclement 'weath, Spring has come

WAR! WAR l WAR !--3.14. EDITOR :
An Unexpected emergency has arisen.
Our beloved Country is plunged in the
horrors of a civil" war, and our homes,
our families, and our firesides aro ex
posed to the dese9rntion and ruin of
hostile incursions. The Constitution
framed by the wisdom of our forefath
ers; the Liberty established by their
toils and labors—and the Independence
sealed by their life-blood, are menaced;
not by the hostility of foreign enemies ;
but by the reckless ambition of domes
tic traitors and aspiring demagogues,
who have long partaken of thebles
sin,gs of our free Government.
It was under such circumstances
that a call was issued for the patriots
in the lower end of Huntingdon coun
ty to rally at Shade Gap, on Saturday
last, to form a company to be known
as the Ringgold Artillery, and to take
up arms in defence of our Country,
and protect our Liberty, our Stars and
Stripes, our homes, and our little ones,
from the ravages of a ruthless and in
furiated foe. rThe meeting was large
ly attended, from the whole surroun
ding country. The greatest enthu
siasm. prevailed. The meeting was
organized with the election of the fol
lowing officers: President, David
Teague Esq.; Vice Presidents, James
Neely, Thomas E. Orbison, Michael
Starr, David Parsons, Wm. Clayton,
Brice Blair and James Baker; Secre
tary, Rev. G. Aran Artsdalen.
The exercises were opened with
prayer by the Rev. G. Van Artsdalen.
Gen. G. W. Speer was then introduced,
who entertained the audience with a
truly patriotic speech, which elicited
much applause. His whole soul seems
to be aroused in the good cause. Ani
mating and soul stirring speeches were
alsoifelivered by Dr. J. Alfred Shade,
Professor Win. H. Woods, B. X. Blair
Esq., and the Rev. G. Van Artsdalen.
After the speaking, the enlisting
went brtwely on. Gen. Speer paraded
his company through our town for
some time, and'the men made quite a
soldiery appearance. Many ladies
were present, encouraging their hus
bands, sons and lovers to enlist in do
fence of the Stars and Stripes. We
venture the assertion that Shade Gap
has a greater display of -Flags than
any other town of its size in the State
of Pennsylvania. You - not only see
them at the Post Office and our
houses, but nine-tenths of all the
private houses have them flung to the
breeze. The large one above the Cu
pola of Millwood Academy, can be
seen for miles around.
FATAL AmnonNr.----On Tuesday eve
ning of this week, John Rouse, residing
about two miles from our village, met
with a most sad and melancholy. acci

He lingered in an insensible condition

on Wednesday, by the sad tidings that
a similar accident .had happened to
William Jones of Shirloysburg, still
more heartrending in its details, and I
followed by a more speedy death, about
three miles south of our village. Mr.
Jones passed through our village on
Wednesday evening about five o'clock
in a sulky; he did not stop in town
but was seen by a number of individu
als. After riding about three miles,
he fell from his sulky,•his foot being
tightly locked in some part of the sul
ky or harness, his head and shoulders
on the ground, and in this frightful
condition he Was dragged over one mile.
When extricated, his breast heaved
but once or twice, and life was extinct.
His head was bruised almost to a jel

frightful spectacle. His clothes were
torn almost off his body, and at differ
ent points along the road, were found
his whip, gloves, knife, purse, &e.
When first discovered by Robert
Johnson who -waS plowing in a field by
the road side,-the horse was trotting
quietly along, and the person drag

till he had approached quite near.—
He was taken to the house of John
Jones, his brother, near by, and the
sad intelligence communicated to his

near Carrick - Furnace, Franklin co., to

at this time on his way to visit his na

Franca and the Southern Confederacy
From Paris Correspondent Now York times.]
PARIS, Thursday, AiirillB, 1861
'The American Minister at Paris, Mr.
Faulkner, has just had an official in
terview with the French Minister of
Foreign Affairs, M. Thouvenil, on the
subject of the recognition of the South
ern Confederacy. At this interview,
if' wo are correctly informed, Mr.
Faulkner went in obedience to the
State Department at Washington, to
carry a copy of the President's inau
gural address, to officially announce
the accession of the new Government
at Washington, apd to represent to M.
Thouvenil the line of policy the new
Government intended to adopt so far
as their policy was decided upon.
Mr. F. informed the minister that he
was instructed to say that the Presi
dent's policy was to be found in the
inaugural address in full; but in brief,
on the question of a recognition of the
Southern Confederacy,' the President
held that there was no faitaccompli as
yet, and that to recognize the Confed
eracy under the present state of things,
would be not only illegal, but an act
of bad faith to a friendly Power, desi
rous and anxious of settling its own
internal affairs in its own way. Mr.
Faulkner also developed 'before the
minister the able views of the question
which he has before uttered, and which
have been already published in the
Times, and finished by protesting in
the most solemn manner against any
recognition of the Southern Confedera
cy until the new minister, Mr. Dayton,
should arrive. Mr. Faulkner said, in
" This is the last time, most proba
bly, I shall have the honor of commu
nicating officially with your Excellen
cy on this or any other subject, as I
leave for my home in a short time, and
I wish now to protest most energeti
cally, in the name of my Government,
against any recognition of the new
American Confederacy, until at least
my 'successor, a gentleman of great
ability and of high personal worth,
and who will naturally come fully pre
pared to present to you the views of
the Government of Washington, shall
M. Thouvenil then deManded to
know if the Cabinet at Washington
were not divided in, sentiment on this
question of recogn" - ien ? To which
the American minister replied that,
under any circumstances, the members
'of the American Cabinet were only
advisory officers, and ' that with the
Presipent remained the initiative and
the responsibility of public acts such
'as these:• That these were the Presi.:
dent's views, and that these alone were
to be taken as guides in :diplomatic
Thouvenil then said that the Gov
ernment of the United' States need not
have any appreheision of a speedy recog
nition of the Southern Confederacy by the
Government of France. It was not the
habit of the French Government to
act hastily in queSticins of so, delicate
a nature. He pointed out the case of
Italy, where apparently there codld be
no special objection to the recognition,
and yet, from prudential motives, the
recognition - was withheld. The French
Government, added M. Thouvenil, sees
the present dissension in'Ameriea with
pain, and not only would desire to see,,
the broken elements reunited, but
would never step in by any acts what
ever to Widen the division, or,add fuel
to the flames.
At the same time, M. ThOuvenil said
that the practice of France, as indeed
of most of the - European Pow Ors; was
now clearly understood in theSe eases
of recognition of new Governments.—
A Government once clearly established,
beyond dispute, iv'as a Government de
facto, and Must be recognized; and
when the new , American Govirnment
arrived at that point, ho presumed, al
though' he had no right now'to preju
dice the future, it would bo recognized.
M. Thouvenil then: demanded infor
mation on the subject of the new tar
iff, which, be said so deeply affected
Trench commerce. = Mr. Faulkner in
formed him, that from indications from
Washington, he believed there would
be an extra session of Congress, and
that the tariff would be modified, a
-declaration which gavo the Foreign
Secretary great satisfaction, and in
duced him to say to Mr. Faulkner,
that at the next meeting of the Cabi
net he would be pleased to report this
hope to the Emperor and his colleagues
in the Government.
M. Thouvenil assured Mr. Faulkner
that up to the present' time, he had
not been spoken to by any ono on the
subject of a recognition of the South
