TEE DAY Boos.—This paper, pub

The Journal & AmeriCan of this morn
ing says that individuals; citizens of
the county, have been busy procuring
subscribers for it, representing it to be
a faithful and correct exponent of De
mocracy. - We have seen a late num
ber of the,Day Book, and pronounce it
as strong a Secession paper as it pos
sibly could be if printed in South Car
olina by .1 - eIT. Davis himself. If there
are Democrats in the county who en
dorse the sentiments of the Day Book,
we warn our friends to be on their
guard and watch closely such men.—
They are not to be trusted in this hour
of our country's troubles. The time
bas come when every man must be
known as a friend or an enemy of the
Government. There can be no-neu
trality, no secession sentiments toler
ted in any community„in the loyal
State of Pennsylvania.

returned from CUMberlawd on 'NCB

Both_Regiments were fed here by our
citizens and the kood people of the
country. A Regiment was also fed
here on Monday. The crowd of peo

their friends in Capt. Harrison's and
Capt. Zentmire's companies, was very

a better man to take command of a

DREADFUL RAILROAD ACCIDENT:-
We learn that the fast passenger train
coining west this morning, run off the
track in the neighborhood of McVey
town, killing several and wounding
others, of the passengers. Wo have
not learned the particulars at the tune
of going to press. Taylor's company
of returning volunteers of Bedford,
was on the train, but we have not
learned whether any were injured.
HORSE TAMING.-R. P. HaMilton,
Stopping at the "Franklin House," has
been for several days "putting through"
a number of wild and vicious horses.
He is a perfect Rarey with the horse.
We have witnessed his performance
with several horses, and would say to
any person having a horse unmanage
able, to bring him to town and give
him in charge of Mr. Hamilton for a
few hours. He will also give instruc-
tion how to train the horse.
THREE COMPANIES.—We have been
informed that three companies of in
fantry of 101 men to each, will be ac
cepted from this county to fill the re
quisition of ten Regiments from the
State for three years' service. Re
cruiting is already going on with a
fair prospect of having the three corn

WHAT I 8 AN AMBULANCE ?—An
bulance is a light carriage, the body
being mounted upon two wheels, and
supported by very elasticlight springs.
It is a little over six feet in length.
There are cots for two inside, with
beds, bead pillows, Ste. The top is
covered with black oil cloth, but the
body and running gear are painted red.
The ambulance is intended for one
horse, with a seat for the driver in
front, and being very light, though
strongly built, can be driven along
very rapidly without injury to the
The maferial of the army now in the
field for the defence of the Union, says
the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, is
as fine as any in the world. There
were, in spite of the recent route,
deeds of heroism, on the part of the
men, that have never been surpassed.
The blunders of the battle were chiefly
caused by the incompetency of some
of the regimental volunteer officers.—
Some of them are said to have been
totally unable to manzuver their men,
and although we accuse none of cow
ardice, we are sure many wore incom
petent. A member„of the New York
Firo Zouaves says that if they had
obeyed the confused and absurd orders
given to them, they would have been
totally cut to pieces. As it .was, by
putting themselves in the hands of the
best of their officers, and also fighting
in their own bold, independent way,
they destroyed the crack cavalry com
pany of the rebels and, as it now turns
out, lost in killed, wounded and pris
oners, not more than 200 out of 1100.
It is quite certain that in other reg
iments there was more or less of in
competency and panic among the offi
cers, and this at once destroyed the
morals of the men. That they should
have fought as well as they did, in
flicting a loss, in killed and wounded,
upon the immense and well-posted
army of the enemy, which is probably
quite equal to ours, is surprising, and
proves what we have asserted, that
there is no better material for an army
than the volunteers of the United
States. But, with some brilliant ex
ceptions, the regimental and company
officers are not fit for their posts, and
now is the time to apply the remedy.
The battle of Bull's Run enabled the
men to see which of their officers un
derstood and which did not understand
their duties. They should at once
make an earnest effort to get rid of
the incompetent and pro Mote the com
petent to higher and more responsible
ranks. There are influences that can
be brought to bear upon such men,
without any mutinous demonstrations,
that will be irresistible, and such offi
cers as have had their ignorance de
monstrated, to themselves as well as'
to their men, will not long resist a
pressure upon them to resign. A few
colonels, lieutenant-colonels, majors,
captains and lieutenants might go
down to the ranks and study the art
of war as private soldiers, with deci
ded advantage. A politician, or a
good fellow, or a clever speaker, or a
man of wealth may be of use in organ
izing a regiment or a company; but
when an actual fight has proved that
ho is not also a soldier, he must be
made to resign. He has no right to
expose the lives of his men or rislethe
honor of the flag and the integrity of
the Union. Let the regiments be
weeded of all worthless officers ; and
if there are any worthless ones among
the higher officers, let them also be
made to give up their commands at
least, if not their rank.
The Evidence of Statistics
The Washington correspondent of
the N. Y. Tribune, presents some very
interesting statistics, from which we
select the following:
"During the last six years the Gov
ernment of the Union has expended
upon Custom Houses, in the States
which have passed ordinances of Se
cession the sum of $6,883,318 34. and
upon Marine Hospitals, $1,515,001 91;
making for these two objects a total
of $8,398,320 25. At the port of Charles
ton, S. C., at which an average of $3OO
- per annum of revenue is collected,
a Custom House was in process of
erection at the time of the outbreak,
upon which, up to June, 1860, the
sum of $2,053,000 had been expended,
and for the completion of which, at
least $2,000,000 more would have bcen
required. At New Orleans, a Custom
House was in process of construction,
the most complete and perfect in de
sign of any public building in the
United States, upon which had been
expended $2,925,258, and about the
same amount additional was called
for in the estimate to finish it.
"During the same period upwards
of $4,000,000 has been spent upon for
tifications in these same States, and at
least au equal amount has gone for the
erection and support of light-houses,
and for the improvement in military
landings. In the building and repairs
of Mints at Now Orleans, Dahlonega,
and Charlotte, mord than $1,000,000
has been expended. The Federal
Government has carried the mails in
these States during the period above
named at an aggregate loss of at least
$12,000,000. These items alone snake
an aggregate expenditure for these
purposes alone of $29,398,320.
" During this period of six years the
gross revenue collected at the ports of
the ' Seceded States,' has amounted in
the aggregate to just $19,206,531 38.
So that, taking into account only tho
items of custom houses, marine hospi
tals, mints, light houses, fortifications,
and mails, the Seceded States have in
six years, cost the Federal Govern
ment 810,191,688 87 more than the en
tiro revenue collected at all their ports.

WASHINGTON, july 29.-11 r. Henry
Burch, a livery-stable keeper of this
city who carried out H. S. Magraw, of
Lancaster, and Arnold Harris to make
an effort to recover the body of
Colonel Cameron, on the battle field,
returned last evening. The party, as
your readers aro aware, was captured
by th'e enemy, at "Fairfax Court House,
when goingout. Burch was permitted
to return on taking an oath to reveal
nothing in reference to the army of
the enemy and its movements. Har
ris, he says, will possibly be permitted
to return, by an exchange of prisoners
or some other arrangement; but Ma
graw will be imprisoned at Richmond
during the war. -
It is understood here that both
Harris and Burch are in sympathy
with the enemy; and if Magraw was
not betrayed into their hands, he was
certainly in the hands of those who
were not over-zealous to secure him

WASHINGTON, July 30.—The rebels
are growing more active and animated
in this region. A party of them was
discovered taking soundings in the
Potomac, last night.
A rumor prevails that the party was
captured by our men this morning.
It has been decided to authorize the
Secretary of the Treasury to issue five
and ten dollar notes fbr national cir
There was au alarm at Alexandria
last night, and our troops were under
arms one hour.
The rebel forces have withdrawn to
within three miles of Fairfirk.
Washington is perfectly safe. The
fortifications on the Virginia side are
as near impregnable as need be; and
if Johnston orLee should cross the Po
tomac at Leesburg or vicinity, to try
to make a descent on this side, they
would soon wish themselves back again.
They have no transportation fora large
army, and before they could approach
the "city we could have a force double
theirs to repel them.
The reports of prisoners escaped
from the rebel camp at Manassas rep
resent great activity there and evident
ly some movement is contemplated;
luit General McClellan will be prepared
for it. The alarm last week is over
entirely. The army officers represent
the troops now here as far better fitted
for a fight than those engaged at Bull
Run last week. • General Tyler is par.
ticularly sanguine about his division.
Army officers engaged in the battle
of Sunday week assure me that our
loss, in killed, wounded and missing.
does not exceed 1,700, some putting it
as low as 7,500. The killed aro no
where stated higher than 500. The
rebel loss must have been double ours,
as they lost many of their best officers.
• There seems to be no doubt that the
remains of Col. Cameron were buried
by the rebels on the battle field.
Another messenger is to be sent to-day,
who hopes to be able to have it disin
terred and brought back toWashington.
WAsnmorox, , July 30.-3 o'clock,
P. M.—Gen McClellan paid a visit to
Congress to-day and was warmly wel
comed by the members.
It is stated here that the Maryland
rebels are still plotting to hurry that
State into the gulf of Secession.
The rebels are said to have the Or
dinance of Secession already drafted.
It will be presented to the Legislature,
which meets in a day or two. The
Legislature has a number of disloyal
men among its members, and a despe
rate attempt will be made to put the
treasonable Ordinance through.
Our forces have had an engagement
with a new battery, just erected by
the rebels, on Aequia Creek. Four of
our. vessels took part in the affair.
A number of shells were thrown
into the rebel camp, creating great
The fire of the Federal vessels was
returned with vigor by rifled cannon.
The rebels only managed to hit the
flotilla once, their range being too high.

- OUR CORRESPONDENCE.
NORTH HENDERSON, ILL.,
July 25, 1861.
DEAR GLOBE:—T110 hurry of ar
vesting at length being done with, I
thought I would scribble a few lines
for your paper to let you know of our
affairs. To begin then, we (that is
my brother and myself,) commenced
to cut spring wheat on the afternoon
of July 9th, that being about the. first
that was ripe hereabouts at that time,
and now we have 14 acres of wheat
in shock, and were only about five
days .and a half at that, as it did not
ripen quick enough to go right along,
so we turned in to help others till ours
was fit. We had an old " Manny "
reaper in operation, this being its sixth
harvest; but my brother (who owns
it) got 820 worth of repairs on it, so
it cuts as well as when entirely ncu'.
Wheat is heavier in the straw, I
suppose, by one third than it was last
season, but I do not think the late
wheat is as well filled as last year, but
do think the early grain is as well if
not better, though a great deal was
sown on corn ground and rather late
too. Oats are a better crop than they
have been since 1855, and a great
many are cutting them. We have
none sowed this year; as they had
missed a crop so long, we thought it
no use trying to raise them. Corn
looks full as well as last year, if not
better, and as it is only a dime a bus.
at market, and costs half that at least
to put it there, the prospect of becom
ing rich raising corn even at severity
bushels per acre, is very slim just now.
Wheat is 45 ets. per bushel, and-slowly
improving. I see by late Chicago pa
pers that new wheat is already in
market there. 'I have 14 acres of
spring wheat which, I think, will make
nearly twenty bushels to the acre; it
is all Canada Club, and that being
white wheat, is the highest priced.
The weather, with tho exception of
about three days since we began cut
ting grain, has been cool and pleasant
and no rain to hurt the shocks nor
stop operations; two days the mercu
ry rose from 94° to 99° in the shade;
the balance of the time it was no
higher than about 82° to 86°. 'I have
not heard of a single horse dying with
belt this year, and that is rather un
common. I see the names of many
of my old companions from Hunting
don and vicinity in Captain Harrison's
company. F. T. PORTER,

S. L: GLASGOW,

K. L. GREENE,
R D. F. BAIUD,
SLY FELLOW-CITriV,NS :—The .politi-
cal heavens are &lA. Eye casts its
anxious glance to eye and heart beats
heavingly to heart. A great day is
upon us, and in holy obedience to the
patriotic impulses which it inspires,
we are here to testify our devotion to
a Union, sanctified by the mighty cost
of its birth and prideless to us for the
blessings of its whole existence. A.
magnificent spectacle greets us! The
strong arm of labor has ceased its
stroke; the workshops of honest toil
have *closed their - doors; the avenues
of trade aio dead to the calls of busi
ness life, and even. the course of em
pire seems, as it were, stayed in rev
erence to the inspiring memories of
this hallowed day! We pause in
wonder before the scene. But as we
pause, a shout of rejoicing fills the air,
and echo answers to echo amid, the
unbroken jubilee of the hour. And
this anniversary is ours—ours to enjoy
and ours to perpetuate. It has been
ournational boast for almost a century;
it shall be our national Sabbath for
centuries to come.
But, my Fellow Citizens, while we
meet this day at a common altar;
bury our antagonisms in a common
grave, and unite' our hearts in one
grand and swelling chorus to a com
mon God, let us not be blind to the
thrilling tragedies that are making one
section of our country painfully histo
ric, or deaf to the wild war notes that
may yet hand us dOwn to posterity—
the bloodiest picture in the " Book of
Time." Apprehension has ripened
into reality, and this day America
stands in arms against herself. Events
thicken, and this moment while I am
addressing you, mighty cannon may
be vomiting forth the deadly oratory
of our armies. We contemplate these
things with pain, and could pray kind
Heaven to save from our view the
bloody scenes 'of the dawning year.—
But duty unites with patriotism in
claiming from us a calm review of this
unhappy crisis and a warm approval
of the efforts of the General Govern
ment to protect from ruin our glorious
land and to preflerve unto us and our
children, the blessingsof Constitutional
I stand before you the advocate of
peace, but there can be no enduring
peace until the causes of this wicked
rebellion are removed, and all classes
and sections are taught that patriot
ism, is the highest duty of the citizen,
and obedience to the legally chosen
authorities in the exercise of their just
powers, the will of God. Enlightened
reason joins the instincts of a common
humanity in terrible condemnation of
the treason that has assailed the "Flag
of our Union." What hidden power
has brought upon us this "flood of
woe"? What oppressions have raised
up traitors in the very bosom of our
nation ? We may fearlessly challenge
the world to show us a Government
in whose administration aro blended
so much justice, moderation and wis
dom. The protection of its citizens in
the enjoyment of all their rights, its
chief object and desire, it has pursued
in peace for many years, its magnifi
cent career of empire, until now the
stars and stripes bathe their colors in
the waters of two oceans, and the
American Eagle utters his wild scream
for freedom from the pines of the Pe
nobscot, only to catch up the swelling
echo from that distant land where
"rolls the Oregon."
This bold attempt to overthrow the
institutions ofour country and enthrone
a monarch on the very grave of Wash
ington, is not the thought of an hour
nor the result of national injustice.--
Treason has been festering under the
shade of the Palmetto for a quarter of
a century, but until this crisis, it could
not live beyond its nativesoil. It grew
in strength by the pity which its weak
ness excited, and it has beebine defiant
only through our merciful toleration.
We all regret this war. The battle's
din has no music for our cars, nor its
desolation a feast for our vision. We
turn in ghastly horror from, the carn
age of struggling armies and mourn
even a victory bought with blood, as
humanity's loss. But the guilt of this
mighty conflict under whose awful
shock the very earth is now trembling,
rests not with us. An insulted Flag,
a threatened Capital, and an imperiled
Constitution, called to our millions of
freemen for protection, and they called
not in vain. A Union, purchased by
the sword of Washington, perfected
by the wisdom of Madison, and defend
ed by the valor of Jackson, shall never
perish in the hands of their sons. We
believe that the last star shall have
faded from the heavens and the last
note of Time have been struck, before
liberty in America shall find a grave.
Hope must bid the world farewell and
Christian civilization disown the grand
triumphs of a century, ore the flag of
the free can fall from its staff, or wave
o'er a laud robbed of the glories of its
In this war, our Government has no
aggressions to make—no vengeance to
inflict. Like a firm yet merciful pa
rent, it seeks to protect all sections
from the ruin which their madness
impels, and while it lifts the arm of
merited punishment, it drops the tear
of parental-compassion. We have no
thirst for blood, but we must and will
defend our flag and preserve the in
tegrity of the Union. The starry em
blem of our nation's pride, must float
in triumph over every cubit of free
dom's soil and the alfris of American
citizenship must know no limit within
the mellow light of day. A Govern
ment we have, and a Government of
power, yet magnanimous in its
strength. , We endure rather than
punish, but endurance has ceased to be
a virtue, and we now shall know no
argument but the sword and the bay
onet, until rebellion shall have: been
disarmed and crushed, and . treason,
covered with its ow-e -infamy and red
with blood and black with crime, shall
have been entombed in an everlasting
sepulchre. The authors of this unholy
crusade against liberty and God, shall
yet try the hemp which their own soil
has grown and.hang midway between
the heavens and the earth, as frightful
apparitions to traitors' through all
This is not a war of sections, but of
principles; not the Mirth against the

of the Union. There are as true pat

of our (:),wl3 Penusxlvania. Andrew

issue of this struggle cannot be
doubtful. The seeds planted in suffer
ing by our Pilgrim Fathers, have borne
their fruit and the love of liberty burns
as warmly to-day in the American
heart, as it did in the huts of Valley
Forge. The mighty exhibition of pat
riotism that has been made by the
friends of the Government within the
last three months, has noprecedent in
the annals of history. The world
stands in trembling amazement at the
scene, and imperial heads sink in wild
despair before the majestic uprising
of our people. Every vallo,y and hill
side around us rings with the shout
"LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC," • and
youth and ago strike hands over -a
common altar in'slefense of the "Flag
of the Union." " The right is with us,
God is with the right, and victory with
with God." Our rivers shall run blood
and our soil be whitened with the
bones of our Wien heroes, before Con
stitutional Liberty shall perish, or the
stars and stripes wave, dishonored,
over the tomb of Washington ! The
past is secure; we will achieve the fu
ture. Duty calls us to the post of dan
ger, and, while traitors' arms are raised
to demolish the Temple of our civil
worship. to hesitate, is,treason. It is
the holy trust of all who love their
country and their God, to serve the
one by defending the other. When
Lord Nelson, on his way to Trafalgar,
said that victory or Westminster Ab
bey should be his, he but spoke the
purpose which_ is giving life and ener
gy to the mighty armies of the Union.
For in the bosom of every man there
"A spirit that would daro
The deadliest farm that death could take,
And &in it for tho country', rate.'
But we will adorn our triumphs
with the purest exhibitions of mercy
and rob war of its blackest horrors with
the tender hand of fraternal love. The
great beating heart of the nation weeps
over the calamities which wickedness
and folly have wrought, and with
every drop of blood that shall be shed,
it will freely mingle the tear of sadness.
But this struggle will not be with
out it's useful lessons and its lasting
benefits. Long as we have been taught
to regard our Government as the best
on earth ; happy as we aro under the
protection which it secures us, and
much as we love it for the blood of its
purchase and its unnumbered blessings
of almost a century, we yet must now
feel that it is not the perfection of wis
dom. Its founders, burning under the
injuries of a heartless despotism, were
fearful, lest they might erect a power
that would become as cruel as that
whose shackles they had burst asun
der. And with this feeling, they
formed a Constitution which is really
weak for its democracy. With a holy
scorn of tyranny, they guarded well
the tights of the people, but withheld
from the bead of the nation the power
fully to crush in its incipiency the
wicked treason that is now desolating
the land. Had there been an article
in our Constitution expressly repudia
ting:the monstrous fallacy of secession,
we would have been saved the grand,
yet alarming, spectacle of half a million
of men in arms to defenil the Itcpublic.
This struggle will remove this weak
ness and unite us in Constitution
and in heart, a stronger nation than
can be found within the limits of our
Another result of this eimfliet will
be the growth of a purer and broader
national lith. Fealty to party has
largely displaced devotion to country
and modest worth has been forgotten
amid the fierce strifes•of personal am
bition. Our posts of public trust have
neither been dignified by 'talent nor
adorned by virtue; but the magic
power of political tactics has overrid
den the claims of merit and foisted
upon the nation a swarm of office•seek
ers and office suckers, "more fatal
to its prosperity than were the locusts
to Egypt. If the blood of this war
shall sweep this army from the places
they disgrace into their just obscurity,
it will not be shed in vain.
Prejudices founded on birth or reli
gious thith, will also disappear. The
enthusiasm with which our adopted
citizens have rushed to the defense of
our Flag and placed their lives as a
holy sacrifice on the altar of our com
mon country, has struck a chord in
the native heart that will vibrate for
centuries to come. Wild in their love
of freedom, the sons of Emmet and
O'Connell know no fear when the Ea-
Wg,le of Liberty screams for protection.
With a warm adieu,, they part from
the idols of their domestic altar and go
to win on the field an inheritance of
glory for their offspring. Worshipers
with us at the same Temple of politi
cal freedom, they will defend it with
their blood alike from the desecration
of tyrannyand the vandalism of treason.
