Goy. Curtin has issued mztrohing or
ders to eight more regiments, Cl/-
camped at Harrisburg, Easton, Doyles
town and Pottsville.
A Washington correspondent of the
Phila. Bulletin under date of the 30th,
says :
"I am assured, from the most au
thenticated sources, that the President
has informed several gentlemen, high
in authority, that the army will not go
into winter quarters here, as intimated
in numerous sections, but that a for
ward movement is a thing determined
on, and will take place at the proper
time. So there need exist no suspi
cion that the immense army here is to
remain quiet for months to come.
Congress at its last session, past a
joint resolution at the request of Lieu
tenant-Gen. Scott, retiring bim from
active service. In accordance with
this, it is understood that he -will re
tire from active duty ere many weeks
pass away.
The rebel batteries were opened up
on the Maryland shore yesterday, and
Oring continued to a late hour last
night; but without damage to any
body on our side. It is believed that
no vessels have, within the last twen
ty-four hours, run the rebel blockade."
Col, Baker's body has been embalm-
O. it will be exhibited, in state, in
Philadelphia, previous to its removal
to California.
The Ball's Bluff affair is to be sub
mitted to a thorough investigation by
the constituted military authorities.
This prisoner, taken at Ball's Bluff,
teas astonished to learn that our army
•was not almost entirely composed of
Abolitionists and radical Republicans,
: and that our main object was other
.than to emancipate slavery through
.out the South. Ho said, if the fact
were generally known to the working
people of the South that our sole ob
ject was to sustain the Government
And *serve the Union intact, there
would be a revolution in the rebel ar
my, and peace restored. Ile was sur
prised beyond measure to be assured
that Brockinridge Democrats constitu
ted a large component of the army.
A. correspondent of the Cincinnati
Commercial, in describing the late bat
tle at Wildcat, Ky., under date of Oct.
25, says:
•, The loss of the enemy is not yet
;known, but it was very severe. Our
men buried 58 rebels whose bodies
;they found on the field, and picked up
, come of their Wounded. The people
beyond Wildcat say that Zollicoffer ad
mits a loss of 80 killed. Our own loss
that day was 2 Indianians killed in a
skirmish and 4 men in battle, and 31
wounded. The attacking force consis
ted of Mississippians, Georgians and
Tennesseans. They were well armed
and equipped, and advanced with great
firmness. When they were repulsed
they threw away knapsacks, blankets,
cte., in great quantities. They were;
generally armed with flint-lock mus
kets, and altered locks, with buck shot
guns and navy revolvers for cavalry.
A considerable quantity of muskets,
shot-guns, and pistols were gathered
on the battle field, and several swords
were found. It is said that a rebel
,colonel and a captain were killed."
dr. Memminger, the 'Confederate
Secretary of the Treasury, gives a
,doleful account of the present and
prospective financial condition of his
Government. What an appalling pic
ture is disclosed in the following ex
tract from one of his last communica
tions—being a letter in reply to the
cotton planters:
"It would appear that the planters,
seriously oppressed as they are by the
blockade, have appealed to the Gov
ernment either to purchase the entire
cotton crop of the year, or to make an
Advance upon its hypothecated value.
'To both of these proposals Mr. Mem
minger declines to accede, remarking,
at the same time, that 'they demand
t that a new Government, yet struggling
for existence, should reject all lessons
of experience, and undertake that
which no Government, however long
.established, has yetsucceeded in effect
ing;" and the experiment, he says, is
proposed, moreover, to a Government
engaged in a gigantic war, whose ene
mies are in possession of all the muni
tions and workshops that have been
collected during forty-five years of
iteAce, whose fleets have been built up
at the jointexpense of both North and
South; who, with all these on band,
,are compelled to spend nearly ten mil
lions per week to carry on the war;
and 'can we,' says Mr. Memminger,
'expect to contend with them at less
than half that expenditure ?' Ire re
minds the • planters, further, th4,A is
net their notes and bonds, 40. i their

ment o increasing the liability, and
thus damaging the credit of the Gov
ernment, IS too dangerous a one to be
tried for the furtherance of any inter
,est, even that of cotton; and he very
plainly tells the planters that they
Must seek relief elsewhere. 51.4 cf, the

from cotton, and take measures for the
Supply of winter crops.' Ito recom
mends the increased cultivation of
grain, and other agricultural products,
and points to the money capital in

If this is the report of the rebel Sec
retary of the Treasury, what must be
the report of the rebel Secretary of
War ? If there is no money in the
locker, how can the head of the family
go to market? If his own people will
not trust him, how can the President
borrow from strangers?
A correspondent of the Cincinnati
Commercial, writing from Louisville,
says that a strong opposition party
exists among the rebels. It is bitterly
hostile to the movement ,against Ken
tucky, which is a gross violation of the
so-called States-Rights principles of
the Secessionists. He says:
" The hwasion of Kentucky gave
the party of Gov. Brown., of Georgia,
a fresh start. The Ultraists had the
honesty to say Kentucky- had the
right to choose for herself, and should
have been respected whatever choice
she may have made; that if misled it
was for time and her own efforts to
bring her back. These doctrines were
powerful ones whispered in the ears
of the army. The influence reached
the Potomac army and infected it.—
The Georgia troops positively refused
to invade Kentucky. They had come,
they said, at the call of Virginia; they
wore ready to go at the call of the
Governor of Missouri, or at the call
of the Governor of Kentucky, but
not to subjugate the men who, in op
position to the Abolitionists, (as they
call all the North,) they had called
brothers. They look on Kentucky as,
and, they call her, a sister State—on
those of the North as free States. The
South Carolina soldiers swore they
would throw down their arms first,
and other demonstrations were made
by other troops so alarming that Davis
has been forced, in his proclamation, to
offer an excuse for his ill-advised in
vasion of Kentucky; and how lame
and impotent is the con2lusion to which
his logic brings him 1"

FRIEND Lewis:—Company 0, 28th
Regiment P. V., don't often trouble the
columns of newspapers with loads of
imaginary successes and high expecta
tions of future resolution and daring.
Neither is it the purpose on this occa
sion, to boast of the chivalry of its
members, or actions of its humble his
tory so far to be recorded. Its stal
wart and hardy componants came
forth front all parts of Huntingdon
but the principle part of them
from the Broad Top Coal Region, hence
its name—" The Lawrence Rifles front
Broad Top." The name, not only
highly significant of the memorable
patriot, whose expiring words were,
"Don't give up the ship," but in honor
of our worthy patriot and esteemed
friend, J. J . . Lawrence, Supt. of the 11.
& B. T. R. R., whose fidelity and fer
vency in the cause of American Na
tionality, has contributed much to
wards the speedy formation and trans
portation of the citizen soldiery of
Huntingdon. county. Capt. Geo. F.
McCabe, its commander, is a man of
indomitable perseverance and energy,
and has gained a name in Col. Geary's
regiment," well worthy of his useful
ness and courage for the cause of lib
erty. He has, during the short time
his company has been with the regi
ment, disarmed two defunct or latent
cavalry companies, known tb have ex
isted a year ago, in Frederick co., Md.,
whose members he visited individually,
and wrung from them their weapons,
which were concealed—in many in
stances most mysteriously. Some had
them buried a mile from their residen
ces, and it was only by the determined
threats of the Captain to send them
to Fort McHenry, that they reluctant
!' - handed over their weapons, which
ere concealed, to be used against us
whenever a favorable opportunity pre
sented itself. There are many com
panies, both cavalry and infitntry,
along the southern border counties of
Maryland, that are but waiting for the
rebels to cross over the Potomac, to
rise up to their assistance. But, un
fortunately for their treacherous hearts,
that assistance can't come to them, and
they doggedly hold out Union procliv
ities to us through day time, and show
signal lights to their rebel brethren in
Virginia, during the night. We
caught many at these acts, who are
now housed up safely in some Fort, to
muse over their treachery. Capt. Mc-
Cabe's company is doing picket duty
on a line of two miles along the Poto
mac, extending from two miles below
Point of Rocks, downwards. It joined
the regiment on the evening of the
22d inst., and marched to Edward's
Ferry, eighteen miles below the Point
of Rocks, where Gen. Banks' command
of 40,000 wore encamped. The 28th
lay there three days, during which
time there was some very important
manceurering by Gen. McClellan, who
also came up. Skirmishing ensued on
the opposite side of the river, which
resulted in our favor. On the 25th,
our regiment returned to Point of
Rocks, to our former encampment.—
The pickets were replaced, and we are
now expecting sonic other important
movement. The series of successes of
the Twenty-eighth Regiment, is due to
its far-seeing Colonel. lie has studied
well the plans and deceptions of the
rebels, knows well the enemy's coun
try in this vicinity, and acting on the
principle of economy of saving men's
lives, his regiment has wonderfully
escaped loss of life, while it has spread
terror to all the rebel forces in range
of his command. At Harper's-Ferry,
where he so signally defeated the reb
els, one hundred and twenty of his
men stood for several hours against a
regiment of infantry and 600 cavalry,
a),111. 'finally, when reinforced to 640,
with three battery guns, exTosed in
open field, while the enemy were shel
tered in the woods, ho totally routed
theni from their shelter, and after
wards, when At cavalry charge was
made against our little force, the rebels
were hurled back reeling from their
saddles. Col. Geary maintained his
hositien until all the wheat which he
ad crossed over to protect, had been
conveyed safely on the Maryland side,
after which he withdrew his forces
Passing along the river on our way
to Edward's Ferry, we beheld the
memorable spot where the lamented
Baker fell. The high cliffs on the op
posite side made it an object of won
der why such a difficult crossing should
be picked upon, whys) there were other
places where good positions could have
been taken on the opposite shore. But
this is not a matter for an humble sol
dier to reflect upon. The disaster does
not dampen our courage. When we
looked at the position of the forces
when they fought, we were satisfied
that a similar occurrence will not take
place, as more prudence will be taken
in the future.
It would not be amiss to state to
your numerous readers and the kind
hearted ladies of Huntingdon county,
that instead of their knitting socks,
and preparing other winter articles of
clothing to be sent to Harrisburg for
distribution amongst the soldiers, that
they send them to responsible persons
at Huntingdon or some other place in
the county, and that those persons
send the clothing direct to the differ
ent companies in the field from the
county. In this way the friends of
the soldiers can assist directly, the ones
they would most desire to help. The
weather is getting quite cool, nights
frosty, and the boys have only their
overcoats and blankets to ward the
stinging frost of winter. Socks and
underclothes are scarce, and benevo
lent exertions should be made through
out the country, to make the brave
boys comfortable, who have volunteer
ed their services to put down the scor
pion traitors whose ambition is to fight
l'or plunder,-and to desecrate homes of
innocent families.
The ague season is now over. Sick
ness has, to a considerable extent, dis
appeared. The boys are in constant
glee for being led forward to battle.—
Your familiar paper is anxiously- sought
for when the mail arrives.

A number of most brilliant instances
of daring were shown on our side.
A sergeant had three horses shot from

at Major Zagoni's breast, and was in
the act of firing when the Major severed
his arm from the shoulder, and laid him
dead at his horse's feet.
Col. Carr's Third Illinois Cavalry,
and Major Holman's Sharpshooters
have left here for Springfield, and ono

Further News from Kentucky
[Rent the Look \ tile Journal, of Oct. 2401.1
A courier came to Lebanon yesterday,
stating that a skirmish had occurred
between Gen. Ward's pickets and a
scouting party of about one hundred
rebels on Thursday night, in Green
county, to the southwest of Campbells
ville. The captain of our pickets was
unfortunately taken prisoner, but we
suffered no other loss, though there
were several of the rebels killed and
wounded, A Tennesseean who was
attached to our forces killed two of
them. Reinforcements were sent for
immediately, and Colonel Harlan had
his men ready as soon as possible, and
it was supposed that they would go
towards Muldraugh's Hill last evening.
We learn that a gang of forty-four
Secessionists, from Owen county, who
left home on Thursday night, under
the lead of a preacher named Foster,
have been arrested in Clark county.
They inado their way to the farm of
Mr. Van Meter where they stopped
one day to rest. Information of theii
whereabouts having been received at
Winchester, a party of thirty Home
Guards started in pursuit, under the
command of young Mr. Grigsby. They
came upon them by surprise, where
they bad picketed their horses and
stacked their arms, and ware .o' in A
cum 404 about fifty yards off. Tubing
possession of these quickly, the Seces
sionists saw that the game was up with
them and they all surrendered without
a fight. Besides the forty-four priso
ners, the Grigsby party captured for
ty-six horses, sixty-six Colt's navy pis
tols, forty-limp Shatpc's and Enfield
rifles, and forty-four sabres, the devils
being armed to the very teeth when
in the saddle. This gallant exploit re
flects great credit on the vigilance of
the Ciark county Horne Guards.

Attempted Escape of a Rebel Priso
ner from Fort Lafayette,
On Sunday morning, between 1 and
2 o'clock, one of the sentinels on the
dock which surrounds Port Lafayette,
had his attention attracted to one of
the port holes in the fort by a strange
noise. He subsequently shaped his
movements in reference to that spot,
and soon saw that one of the seces
sionist prisoners was endeavoring to
make his escape. Mr. Lowber, the
gentleman who was arrested sonic
time since at Crestline, Ohio, bearing
despatches for the Confederacy, was
the individual who was thus engaged
in offering defiance to the strong walls
of the fort. It appears that Lowber
had procured a key which fitted the
padlock that fastened the grating of
the port hole, and that he had opened
the grating. He had also been provi
ded with a new wash tub and a rope;
also a life preserver.
He had $47,50 in gold and his gold
watch packed in a bladder and fits
toned in one of his pockets. Having
packed his valise, he placed it in the
tub; he then fastened the rope to the
tub, let the tub out of the porthole, and,
after securing the rope, bid good bye
to Fort Lafayette and entered the tub
himself. He then set sail for the ground,
all the while watched by the sentinel,
who allowed Mr. Lowber, his tub and
its cargo to land on the dock in safety.
But no sooner had he landed than he
was commanded to surrender or be
shot. Of course, Mr. Lowber did not
like the shooting proposition, so he
surrendered, and suggested to the sen
tinel that ho take the bladder contain
ing the gold watch and the $47.50 in
money and allow him to go back into
the fort through the porthole, and have
nothing said about it. But the senti
nel was not to bo used. He alarmed
the garrison, and Lieut. Wood, the of
ficer of the post, had the prisoners' roll
called to see if all his prisoners wore in
the fort. He then had Lowber secured
in double irons and placed in the guard
It appears that Mr. Lowber has re
ceived some visits from ladies with
skirts of an extraordinary size. In
future visitors will doubtless be sub
mitted to close scrutiny.—N. Y .Uerald.
