As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

O'er the land of the fico, and the home of the laurel
Oh I thus ha it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and war's desolation!

Important Military Movements.
The Washington correspondent of
the Press under date of the 16th says :
4, It is now decided . by Government
to push sixty thousand Eastern troops
into the West one-half of them
through Kentucky, and the other por
tion into Missouri. These, with the
Western troops going forward, will
swell the Western and Southwestern
armies to vast proportions. Out of
those pushing on into Missouri anoth
er wing will be formed, under a new
command, to proceed with the new
gunboats and transport steamers down
the Mississippi during the autumn
months. General Wool, it is thought,
will command the river fleet and ar
my. In these three branches of the
Union army there will be not less than
200,000 men, and the Government will
expect the most energetic movements
.at the hands of the officers in com
mand, and no rest until the Union has
asserted its authority and rebellion
has been thoroughly crushed out."
GOVERNMENT HORSES.—Some three
hundred horses have been inspected
here during yesterday and to-day.—
About three-fourths were rejected,
causing a heavy -fall in the price of
horse flesh. The speculators will suf
fer severely if they fail to get the re
fused horses off their hands. We are
not much of a judge of a horse, but
we certainly would not have offered
some of the horses as suitable for cav
alry. There were some fine animals
offered and accepted. Three or four
gentlemen declined to offer their hor
ses for inspection, as they objected to
the best being picked out of their lot.
,nr Thad. Banks, Esq., has been
elected to the Legislature from Blair
county. Mr. Banks was an indepen
dent candidate, and is a strong Union
Democrat. Cyrus L. Pershing, Esq.,
has also been elected to the Legisla
ture from Cambria county. John
Cessna, Esq., wo are sorry to say, was
defeated in the Bedford and Somerset
district by a small majority. _
CONIINDRUM.—What was the differ
ence between the contractors and their
horses at the inspection on Wednes
day ? The horses were rejected and
the contractors were dejected.

in want of fruit trees, to make their
selection from Taylor & Cremer's as

HOW SCOTT'S LIFE WAS SAVED.--The
following anecdote is told of the Pres
ident by The Boston Journal : " One
of the soldiers in the Vermont regi
ment to which private Scott, the sol
dier sentenced to be shot for sleeping
upon his post, belonged, relates an in
cident which shows in a strong light
the kind-hearted character of our
President. Scott was to be shot early
in the morning. On the afternoon be
fore, it was decided to pardon him, but
the place of his confinement was six
or seven miles from Washington.—
President Lincoln telegraphed to the
officer in charge of the execution, but
getting no reply, and fearing that his
message might have miscarried, he
went himself after dark to tbo encamp
ment, to make sure that all was ri,;ht."
Our Army Correspondence.
GREAT FALLS, VA., OCt. 6, 1861
EDITOR GLOBE:—On Wednesday last
our company (Co. I) wits another of
the. Fifth Regiment of the Reserves,
left Camp Tenafly on a march to this
point, for the purpose of reinforcing
some troops stationed here on picket.
About ten o'clock at night, we started!
from camp with tents and other equip
age, and what a march we lad ! The
distance was about 16 miles; the night
was pitchy dark, but away we went
over a rough, dreary mountain road,
with a merciless rain drenching us to
the skin. We have become used to
such hardships, and it was only fun for
us. We waded through mud up to
our knees, indeed some of us got in
up to our eyes. We reached our des
tination, however, about daylight the
next morning, and found a very small
village of about six or eight houses,
on the banks of the Potomac. The
houses were all deserted but two, and
they inhabited' by some filthy Irish,
who remained for the sake of making
money oft' the soldiers by selling pies,
&e., to them. Every house in the
lage bears the marks of bombardment.
On the day before our arrival, the
rebels had been throwing shells at a
house where our pickets had been quar
tered, but, fortunately, there were none
in at the time. With their shells and
' balls, they added several more win
dows to the house, with the addition
of sundry sky-lights in the roof, which
let in rain as well as light, but doing
no further injury. Their pickets arc
about the width of the river from ours.
A few days ago they paid visits to each
other, and had some friendly talks to
gether, exchangine• '' caps and other
trifling articles. But ' this mutual
agreement was first broken by them.
On last Sunday morning, one of the
11th Regiment went down to the river
to wash. He and the rebel pickets
bade each other " ctood morning."—
They invited him to come across the
river and take breakfast with them.—
He made some excuse, however, and
was about returning, when they fired
upon him killing him instantly. Since
then, both they and we have kept at a
respectful distance, sheltering behind
trees or entrenchments. This a speci
men of Southern chivalry for you. This
is the way they keep their promises.
" You let us alone. and we will let you
alone." Our tents are pitched in a
graveyard, with a bill between us and
the ricer. Our company was out on
picket duty yesterday and last night,
about five miles farther up the river,
where I got a sight at a couple of their
pickets, but was not near enough to
get a shot. We could hear the drums
in their camp. This morning we were
reinforced by. a company of artillery.
who have been throwing shell at an
old barn across the river, in which it
is supposed some of the rebels are
quartered. At the first fire, we could
see their cavalry making their way
over the hill as fast as their horses
could carry them.

Skies Brighter in Missouri.
[From filo St. Louis Republican, Oct lab.]
The latest intelligence from the West
encourages the belief that our State is
to be soon wholly freed from the pres
ence of any formidable force in arms
against the Federal army now occupi
ed here. Lexington .advises state the
situation of Price truly. Contrary to
the reports which represented it as
probable that ho would make a stand
at Georgetown, he is, no doubt, at this
time beating a rapid retreat by a road
much nearer to the Kansas frontier,
on his way to the Arkansas border.
There is a rumor, not a very improba
ble one, that he sent out a detachment
toward Sedalia ; but we doubt the
truth of even this rumor. His whole
force when he left Lexington, on the
30th ult., did not probably exceed 18,-
000 men. Sometime before that we
know that he had only 22,000. We
now speak of his regular force. The
unorganized irregulars and hangers on
were several thousand snore. But it
is probable that, only his regular force
accompanies him on his retreat. This
must be felt as a disaster by most of his
men, who will see nothing but a bar
ren victory in the capture of Lexing
ton. This feeling will dissatisfy and
depress to such an extent, as to occa
sion large withdrawals from an army
constituted like his, most of whom re
.gard themselves as in every sense of
the word volunteers. They are badly
provisioned in every respect, and the I
want of comfortable clothing and quar
ters will tell upon many of them as the
season advances. From Springfield, we
learn that there are not over 1,000,
Stale troops at that point, and that
McCulloch's camp does not number
over 1,600 more. McCulloch, it is said,
is expecting reinforcements from Ar
kansas, but perhaps Isis expectations
will be disappointed. Price's expedi
tion has been fruitless of any event '
having important bearings on the
nth's - Cant! conclusion orthe war here.
And so it is felt by his supporters and
immediate followers. If he had, as we
presume he had, only 18;000 men,
when he left Lexington, wo doubt
whether he can bring together 10,000
when he reaches the Arkansas border.
We have all along felt confident that
Jefferson City, much less St. Louis,
was in no danger of any attack of the
Confederate or State troops. It was,
some time since, highly probable that
Price, if he left Springfield, would pro
ceed to the point he did on the Mis
souri river. That point was in a com
paratively friendly region, and, one
full of such resources as his army need
ed to draw upon. When he started on
his late fruitless expedition, he proba
bly conceived the idea of taking up
winter quarters at Lexington, and
operating from that point. There
were many reasons in favor of such a
plan. Besides that it was in the heart
of a country capable of furnishing abun
dant supplies; it was a point from
which he could sally out with detach
ments, either to meet separated bodies
of the Federal troops, or to interrupt
their lines of communication. One
enterprise of this kind he set on foot,
when he sent 4,000 men across the
river to advance on the line of the Hau
-1 nibal and St. Joseph road with orders
to destroy the track with a view to the
stoppage of travel and transportation
by that route. That these troops were
so suddenly recalled, which was the
fact, (for it is an error to suppose they
were driven back by an enemy, as at
first reported,) is ono of the evidences
to show that a very sudden change in
the general plan had been resolved on.
No doubt Gen. Price was well in
formed as to the amount of opposition
I he would have to encounter at Lex
ington. Ho rightly calculated that he
would be able, by his overpowering
numbers, to take it from its defenders.
He falsely flattered his hopes with the
idea that so small a garrison there, so
long continued without r einforcements,
showed general inability to bring into
the field a force which would be formi
dable to him. He underrated the re
sources of the head of this department
I and the energy he was exerting to
bring together the necessary men and
material. The most authentic accounts
go to show that ho was qiffte ignorant
of the ability of the foe ke .w a was conten
ding with. Again, he 's, we are
persuaded, disappointed ,at not wit
nessing, as ho approached the heart of
the State, a general insurrection of the
people, and enthusiastic rally to his
standard. No doubt he had consider
able accessions to his numbers, and also
when the news spread that he had cap
tured Lexington. But he, as we be
lieve, soon discovered the extent to
which ho could calculate on such sup
port; and was disappointed and dis
heartened by its moderate proportions.
He was not welcomed and not sustain
ed as he expected. We have said he
was quite ignorant of the force likely
to be opposed to him, and so he was
until be got to Lexington. There he
received information which opened his
oyes, and convinced him that with all
the troops he could muster, it would
be madness for him to oppose them to
the arrayon this side. Hence the sud
den and complete change in his deter
mination and plans. Instead of win
tering in Lexington, he is seeking win
ter quarters in a much more southerly
latitude. He has suddenly aild • en
tirely abandoned all that he won. The
march to Lexington and the march
back again are a striking illustration
of another famous march to which it is
needless to allude more particularly.
But the evacuation of an important
post won is often—and may be in this
cast--equivalent to signal defeat. For
it is doubtful whether such defect
could have more demoralized his for
ces than the surrender of the fruits of
As to a rumor of a junction between
Price and McCulloch, and a movement
of their armies on Jefferson City, we
agree with those who deein any such
outgivings by the former as intended
simply to amuse and pacify his men.
If he is making such promises, he, is
deluding them, cons to keep them con
tent to follow m, in the hope, so often,
cherished by Wilkins Micawber, that
in the chapter of accidents, "something
may turn up." Of what that some
thing is, we, do not believe Gen. Price
has any clearer conception than had
his immortal prototype.
Without going, therefore, into any
detail to show the immense forces at
the command of Gen. Fremont—of
which we may presume he will make
a good use—we may congratulate
every friend of the peace and quiet of
Missouri on the present prospects.
Peace and quiet are what are wanted
by a very large majority of our citi
zens; and they will, we believe, Soon

i 4 EN AVANT."
The weather for the last two weeks
has been splendid. The earth, satura
ted heretofbre by an unusual quantity
of rain, has become thoroughly dried,
the streams have resumed- their origi
nal channels, or shrunk within their
usual borders. The atmosphere is ex
ceedingly brilliant, reminding us of
that purest of American seasons, the
Indian summer.' There never was
more propitious weather for military
operations. And we are reminded by
the date at the head of this day's is
sue, that the equinox is upon us, unac
companied by its usual concomitants
of clouds, rain and storms.
It seems as though Nature herself
had espoused our cause, and invited
us to come forward. We cannot al
ways calculate on her favors. In a
few days she may shroud herself in
clouds, and drench the earth once
more by rain. We hope our generals
will take advantage of the ovportunity,
and seize the initiative. Time, in mil
itary- matters, is victory, is triumph, is
everything, and we learn from the old
adage, that time is bald behind. He
must be seized by the forelock, or he
will forever elude the grasp.
We have not in this journal pre
sumed to criticise the movements of
the generals. We could not but see,
what all the world must have seen,
that a movement in advance one day,
or one Iveek, or even two weeks, after
the battle of Manassas, would have re

We feel confident that the best way
to deal with such men was to assail
them bodily, no matter what their
numbers might be, without waiting a
moment to count the cost of the as
sault. We are sure they would never
stand the test, for we know that they
were disbanding daily, that they were
totally regardless of military disci
pline, that they were strewed all over
Washington, lying drunk in the rum
shops, on the cellar doors, in the gut
ters, and thinking of nothing but get
ting back home. We were satisfied
then, we are satisfied now, that Wash
ington might have len taken by a
hundf'ull of men, alt.tvst by a charge
of cavalry. We could not understand
the advantages of delay. We know
nothing of military tactics; but the
modicum of common sense with which
we were gifted by our Creator, ena
bled us to doubt the policy which left
to a conquered and dispirited enemy
the leisure to recover from his terror,
to restore discipline, recruit his forces,
to drill his men, to erect gigantic for
tifications. But we said nothing of
all this, because our generals had the
matter in their own hands, and best
knew what they were capable of per
forming. When, therefore, wo learned
that their reason for not following a
panic stricken enemy twenty-five
was that they had not provision and
transportation sufficient to carry them
that distance, we thought the public
ought to. be satisfied.
We had read, nevertheless, that
Ctesar had pursued Pompey from the
plains of Thessaly to the sea beach of
Alexandria, after the battle of Phar
salia, although previously to that bat
tle he had been on the point of break
ing up his camp for want of provisions.
We had, moreover,_ read the first proc
lamation of Gen. Bonaparte to his ar
my in Italy, in which he tells them in
the course of fourteen days they had
gained six victories and destroyed two
armies; they had "gained battles with
out cannon, crossed rivers without pon
toons, made forced marches without
shoes, and watched all night under
arms without brandy and sometimes
even without provisions "—that they
had been " bereft even of necessaries
at the commencement of the cam
paign," but that now (at the date of
the proclamation) "they enjoyed plen

most appalling character. As a cotem
porary justly remarks, the transform
ing power of the terrible evil which
has broken out like some deadly pesti
lence amongst the people of the United
States, converting individuals supposed
to be civilized into barbarians, seems
to have no likeness in history ; the
cruelties it has suddenly engendered
can find no parallel except in that Se
poy rebellion which made the Christian
world shudder as its details became
, known. In Western Virginia, it has
taken to midnight burning of dwellings
occupied, in the absence of the heads
and children, the escapes related in
two cases being the narrowest that it
is possible to imagine; whilst every
outrage known to the criminal colon
' der seems to run riot in Kentucky and
Missouri. The destruction ofrailroads
and bridges, where the lives of the in
nocent are not involved in the catas
trophe, have really come to be the
milderphasos of the fearful visitation ;
and a man might as well bo one of a
party cast ashore on the Cannibal
Islands of the Pabific as be exposed to
the tender mercies of the Disunionists
in too many portions of our but lately
law-abiding and happy land.
The truth is, it is coming to that in
the history of this terrible heresy that
no terms can be made with it by a
civilized people. It has created—es
pecially on the frontiers—a condition
of things never conceived of by those
who contemplated its course in the
outset. There it has taken by - the
hand the savages—red men—who, in
too many cases, have disgraced them
selves by the association, it is prowling
through the land on its destructive
mission, and carrying terror and de
vastation to thousands of happy homes.
When men are disposed to welcome
pestilence let them welcome it; but so
long as they would put afar off the
worst evils that bring death to their
doors, let them make no terms with
this evil visitant.
