PROPOSED BANKRUPT ACT.—A COM mittee of the most respectable mer chants of Now York, have prepared a draft of an act for the consideration of Congress, for a general bankrupt law. This act has been framed by Mr. Wm. Allen Butler, of that city, with as care ful a view to the interest of creditors as of honest and unfortunate debtors. It combines the best provisions of the New English bankrupt act, which has lately taken effect, with those of the French law, the United States act of 1841, and the Massachusetts insolvent law. It provides for the full and un conditional discharge of the debtor upon the surrender of all his property for distribution • without preference among all his credito'rs, and upon his compliance with the provisions of the act. The assignees in bankruptcy are to be appointed by the creditors, and other efficient provisions are made to guard their interests. PENNA. LEGISLATURE.—Both branch es of our State Legislature met and axganized on Tuesday; the House by the election of John Rowe, a Union Democrat, as Speaker, and the Senate by the election of Hon. Louis W. Hall, as Speaker. George W. Hammersly was elected clerk, and G. S. Berry, as- Bistant clerk; F. L. Hitchcock, J. B. McAfee, Martin Orlady and W. W. Watt, transcribing clerks; Herman Yerkos, sergeant-at-arms ; John G. Martin, door-keeper; Thomas W. Wal ker, messenger; Wm. P. Brady, libra rian. In the House, E. H. Roach was elected clerk; E. S. Capron, assistant clerk; C. W. Walker, J. B. Niles, Rob ert Brown and James Connelly, trans cribing clerks; E. B. Picket, sergeant at-arms; Casper Gang, door-keeper; S. G. Blanchard, messenger; H. A. Woodhouse, postmaster. air The war has solved many diffi -cult problems, and dissolved many plausible theories. It has proved the military capacity of our people, and disproved the noisy professions of de votion to the Union of the Southern deaders. It has shown that we are ~.capable of existing and of subsisting -ourselves independent of foreign pow -ere, and it has exploded the whole as -suraption that the 13ritish aristocracy have not desired tho overthrow of this government. That problem which may remain to be solved is, whether the American people can successfully resist domestic treason and European despotism combined. fair- The patriots of the Revolution never uttered a more noble sentiment than Gov. Sprague, of Rhode Island expressed, when he said, " Wealth is useless unless it promotes the public welfare, and life itself but a bauble un less it ministers to the honor and glory of our country." The nobility of this sentiment is attested by the fact that Gov. Sprague, who is- the :wealthiest man in NOW England, has given from his personal fortune immense sums to promote the cause of the Union, and has periled bib life in the foremost ranks of the army upon the field of battle. Ate' The man Davis, whom we no ticed in our Tuesday's issue, as being suspicionod for killing his wife, was brought to town and lodged in jail on Tuesday evening. We have not learn ed any farther particulars concerning the case, more than that the bruises we mentieued, were not ,of a serious enough character to cause death. WY' Napoleon Bonaparte punished every dishonest army contractor with death. Ile regarded every man who sought to coin money by malpractice upon the government, in a time of war, as worse than a public foe. WPC LEWIS , "GLOBE" BUILDINC, HUNTINCDOIV, PA.

A 2122232425 26 27 1, 29 301 2B 29 30 31 THE OLD BELL AND THE NEW.-OD last Wednesday, the old bell on our public school-house, which had rang out its merry peals over this borough for sixty-three years, was taken down and replaced by a new one. The old bell bears the following in scription : " Cast by Samuel Parher, Phila., 1708. William Smith, D. D., to the Borough of Huntingdon, Juniata." It was presented to this borough by William Smith, D. D., proprietor of the town, and was first placed upon the old Court House, which stood in Smith street, between Hill and Allegheny streets, at that time the only public building in the borough. This bell up to the time of the erection of the ono on the Presbyterian Church, was the only one in the vicinity, and was rang on all occasions for the sessions of the Court, religious and town meet lugs, elections, etc. After the present Court House was built, about the year 1843, the bell was removed to the school-house where it I served to call the schools together un til on a frosty morning,l2th of Decem ber last, it was broken in ringing. The new bell weighs 406 pounds, and was procured at the foundry of A. Meneely's Sons, West Troy, N. Y .— The weight of the old ono is 254 lbs.

EXTRAS.—We furnished our town subscribers at an early hour this morn ing, with an Extra containing the Gov ernor's Message and the Report of the State Treasurer, besides a vast amount of other important reading matter, and enclose the same to our country subscribers, in to -day's paper. INZP' A large 'sleighing party went out to tne Warm Springs yeSterday af ternoon and evening. We' presume they had a "high old time" "tripping the light fantastic toe." DIARIES FOR 1862.—Several sizes re ceived and for sale at Lewis' Book Store. • REBEL ZANTIPPES.- - If you want to make an angel, select a good woman for the material ; and if you want to make a real devil, just pick out a bad one, especially if a secessionist. We notice that the other day a fine cake was sent to Mrs. Greenhow, a rebel lady confined in Washington. Lieut. Sheldon stuck a penknife into it in several places, and striking a hard sub stance, opened it, and found Treasury notes, fives and tens, to a considerable amount; also a letter, stating that ar rangements had been made to effect her escape and conveyance to Rich mond, and naming the day and hour of deliverance. When the lady found out the discovery obtained from her cake, her anger was uncontrollable.— The Lieutenant bought her a nice new cake and sent it to her, but she threw it down stairs. . A Baltimore widow, Mrs. Baxley, was brought in to charge the prison of Mrs. Greenhow and Mrs. Poole. She was three days from Richmond with a valuable "cargo." She had among many little documents of value about parts of her clothes and person, thin papers hid in her hair. One of the papers was a commission in the rebel army for a young Baltimorean. She refused to sleep under a blanket ?narked "U. S." After being confined she sent to an officer for different ones.— She soon received notice to sleep under them or go without. WAR NEWS. FROM THE UPPER POTOMAC. General Jackson Retired from Hancock. Supposed Design of an Attack on . General Kelly's Command, FALSE RUMORS. FREDERICK, Jan. 7.—The latest ad vices from Hancock are, that last night Gen. Jackson retired, leaving only a battery and infantry guard in sight. The result of the shelling has been un important. One rebel officer was seen to fall from his horse, and is believed to have been killed. None are reported wounded or killed on our side, not withstanding the extravagant rumors eircuiating-bore about our men baring been cut up, etc., all of which rumors gre false. Jackson's rebel force consisted of ten regiments, with a large baggage and supply train, and ten days cooked ra tions. It is not known where he went, but it is surmised that ho intends to -attack Gen. Kelly's command. Gen. Banks' Third brigade left hero yester day morning and arrived at Hagers town, twenty-six miles distant, at 5 o'clock yesterday evening. No strag glers were left along the route. This march was performed through three or four inches of snow. They would prob ably reach Hancock by noon to-day. Gen. Lander has been assigned to the command of Gen. Kelly's division, and Gen. Williams takes command at Han cock. The Connecticut Fifth Regiment re turned here last Thursday from Han cock, and marched again with the Third Brigade, to which they are attached, yesterday morning. They have not been attacked, as was started, nor been in a position to be attacked since they left Hancock, yesterday a week. TIIE LATEST FREDERICK, Jan. 7.—A11 is quiet at Hancock. IMPORTANT FROM CAIRO. CAIRO, Jan. 7.—Flag Officer Foote, with the gunboats Essex, Lexington, and Tyler, made a reconnoissance down the Mississippi this morning. lie went within two hundred yards of range of the rebel batteries. On his return he was fired at ,by the rebel gunboat 'Mohawk, to which be replied, but the shots all fell short. The flag officer is highly satisfied with the reconnoissance, and has ex amined all points on the river as near as two miles to Columbus. A despatch. from Capo Girardeau to day, says that a detachment of the 7th Illinois Cavalry, while scouting, had captured Maj. Williams, of Jeff. Thomp son's band. The Surveyor of the port of Metrop olis has seized a large quantity of gold lace, morphine, and other costly drugs intended for the rebels. The goods were from Cincinnati. FROM WESTERN VIRGINIA. A SUCCESSION OF VICTORIES BATTLE AT BLUE'S GAP. The Rebels Completely Routed WHEELING, Jan. B.—Special dispatch to the Intelligencer from Cumberland last night, says a detachment of Gon. Kelley's forces, commanded by Colonel Dimming of the sth Ohio left Romney last night at 12 o'clock, and attacked the robels 2,000 strong at Blue's Gap, east of Romney, at daylight this day. The rebels were completely routed with a loss of killed, two pieces of can non, their wagons, tents, Sce„ with twenty prisoners, including ono com• missioned officer. Our loss none, his rumored here this P, X, that the rebels are in full retreat from Ilan cock. Cirmcs.zNaTi, Jan. 8.--A special dis patch to the Gazette from Iluttonsville says that Gen. Milroy iFS still moving. The expedition sent out by him com posed of 800 of the 82d Ohio regiment under Capt. Lacey, into Tucker coun- ty, dispersed 400 rebels, capturing a commissary and a large amount of his stores, a Ist Lieutenant and a private. Four rebels were found dead on the ground and a large number wounded. Our detachment is still in hot pursuit. THE IVAR , IN MISSOURI, LoursvlLrE, Jan. B.—The Democrat is informed that a Federal scouting party brought fiye prisoners into Co lumbia, Kentucky, who were endeav oring to join the rebel Zollicoffer. The party report that Zollicoffer with 4,000 men are between, Greensboro and Co lumbia. The toirn of Greensboro' bad been almost depopulated by the rebels but Gen. Ward's Federal brigade bad gone there to take possession. The rebels ha 4 captured five soldiers who wore guarding Borall's Ferry, kill ing a man named Tames and taking fifteen or twenty muskets. The guard 7-t--)Lts.adat the east side of the river The Army of the West, A correspondent of the Boston Jour nal, in describing the army of the West, says : There are two grand divisions of the army west of the Alleghanies—tbat commanded by General Buell, in Ken tucky, and that commanded by Gen. Halleck, in Missouri. There will soon be a third, commanded by Gen. Lane, in Kansas. Gen. Buell has all of Ken. tueky east of Cumberland river. All west of that, including Cairo, is in General Halleck's division. Gen. Buell's Main Army. Turning to the southwest, we see a line of railroad leading toward Nash ville, Tennessee, from Louisville. Sev enty-two miles down the line is Mun fordsville, on the north bank of Green river, which crinkles through the State, turning, coiling and recoiling upon it self in interminable curves. Here you see the wreck of a noble bridge, which the rebels destroyed, blowing up the massive stone piers, and precipitating the magnificent structure to the bot tom of the river. Here, too, you can ' see the white tents of a hundred regi ments. A thousand men are hard at work upon the bridge, rearing a tem porary structure. They have got it well along, and in a few days it will be complete. Crossing the river, and turning ten miles toward the west, we see the Mammoth Cave. Beyond, fif teen or twenty miles, isßowling Green, where the rebels are in strong position, it is said, under Johnson and Buckner, about forty thousand of them behind entrenchments. Can they be shelled out, or flanked? Looking once more at the river, we find that it is naviga ble for steamboats up to Morgantown, which, as you observe, is quite a place in Butler county. Looking straight down toward the Tennessee line from Morgantown, thirty miles distant, or two days march, is Russellville, the county seat of Logan, near the centre of the county. It is in roar of Bow ling Green, and on the stage road lead ing from Morgantown to Russellville. It is on the direeteourse toward Nash ville, which is about fifty miles further south. There are some Federal troops near Morgantown, and at other places on Green river, which can receive trans portation by steamboats, provided the river is not closed by ice. When Gon. Buell is real* for them to move, un doubtedly you will learn that Bowling Green has a fire in the roar. The rebel force at Bowling Green is variously es timated. The rebels say one hundred thousand, but I hear that that is bra vado to blind Buell, and that the real available force does not exceed fifty thousand. Thee will telt which is the true estimate. Western. Xentuoky. All the territory in Kentucky west of the Tennessee river is in Gen. fist leek's division. Turning now our telescope to that section, we see a pe culiar configuration—the Ohio borders on the north, the Tennessee the oast s the Mississippi the west, inalqugan ox bow, with the opening town i rd the South. Measuring along th©to 'fine between the Tennessee and the Missis sippi, we find the distance not far from seventy-five miles. Oh all sides but the south there is a steamboat nayila tism. The rebels have twenty Miles on the Mississippi, and we have all the rest. The Tennessee is navigable for steam boats to the Muscle Shell shoals,.which are in the State of Alabanut. The riv er is rarely frozen for any length of time. It empties into the Ohio forty eight miles above Cairo. At Paducah, which stands at its mouth, we have seven thousand men. There is a rail road running to Union City, which you observe is just over the Kentucky line. Union City is on the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, twenty-five miles from the rebel stronghold at Columbus, and about forty miles from Paducah. The rebels have torn up a good deal of the iron, and burned the bridges on the line—not the army, but resident Seces sionists who swarm in the ox bow. Let us look closely at this section of the country, for it is desirable to get the rebels out of Columbus. Let us steam up the Tennessee river. There are no batteries on its banks. About seventy miles from Paducah, you no tice that we come to the railroad which extends from Bowling Green to Mem phis. We have already seen that this line can be reached by the Cumberland river; also, that there are Federal troops not far from Hopkinsville, and now we see that it can be directly reached by the Tennessee river. Leav ing the steamboat and taking the rail road toward Memphis, which is one hundred and fiftyseven miles distant from the Tennessee river at this point, we find at the town of Humboldt, only seventy-five miles distant, a railroad leading from Memphis to Columbus. What if a strong Federal force should get possession of Humboldt? The reb els would find it difficult to hold Co lumbus. True, they would have the Mississippi, but Commander Foot, with his gunboats, may have something to say upon that part of the question. I do not present this as having any ref erence whatever to any contemplated movement in the future, but merely to show that, although the rebels have strong positions at Bowling Green and Columbus, Nature has given geograph ical features—water-ways, admitting of transportion—by which both of those positions can be turned. The only thing to be feared is an ice block ade. Aside from the rivers, we have rail communication. A Napoleonic genius would see no difficulties worth naming in turning the flanks of the rebels at Columbus and Bowling Green, or rather of breaking through the lines and threatening Memphis and Nash ville. Let our corninanders—McClellan on the Potomac., Buell on the Ohio, and Hailed: on the Mississippi—review the military strategy of Gen. Wolfe; let them remember how he searched every nook and•corner, every ravine, every crevice, every standing place along the precipices of the St. Lawrence, to find a way of reaching tho heights above, where Quebec was held by Monteahn ; let them call to mind his determination to gain a position and force the enemy to fight; let them remember his glori ous success, and improve the opportu nities to crush rebellion, and make for themselves a name forever to be hon ored by their fellow-mon. The Progress of the War, Th . orn tiq denying.• the fact that theiVlSlOnsitte - rable'restfcs- public mind on account of the slow progress which is apparently being made by our armies into the Rebel States. But it must be remembered (says the Baltimore Clipper) that since General McClellan has entered upon the duties of Commander-in-Chief, a number of important movements have been made, all of which are thus far successful, except an unaccounted for blunder on the Upper Potomac, which no doubt was the result of inattention to 'specified orders. These movements are also generally preliminary to oth ers wliieh are to follow on a more gi gantic scale, and may be considered as important steps in the progress of the war. We may wBll therefore be con tent to " make haste slowly." A bat tle by tb& main army near Washing ton, may determine the fate of the rebel confederacy; let their army there be defeated, and they can never rally another to supply its place: The back bone of their rebellion is thus broken, and although a guerilla warfare may be carried on for some time longer, still their hopes of success will be forever blasted, and every State will be found looking out for its own interest, and taking care, it may be, that justice is awarded to their respective leaders who have duped them into their un happy position. Mighty armaments are being now fitted out, and will probably be ready within a week Or ten days—and no doubt as soon as the word is sounded along the line that •" all's ready," a movement will be made which will tell with astounding effect, and prove to the rebels who some time since taunted the loyal men of the Union with the charge 1 / 4 0at we had no Government, that it is in full operation, and able to vindicate the honor and integrity of the Union. Those who have read the history of the wars in. the Peninsula, in Europe, will remember that Lord Wellington was subject to the sneers of the civil ians and people at home, from the same cause that Gen. McClellan's course is now objected to. It could not be di vined by out-siders why an army such as he had in camp should so long re main apparently inactive—but Wel lington knew well that he was gaining strength daily by the more perfect discipline of his forces, and that when ho did etriko the stakes were for more than one kingdom, (Spain and Portugal,) and that he had better wait five years than to risk a battle before he could find himself perfectly pre pared to secure success—and the result fully verified his wisdom. So it is with Gen. McClellan—the fate of the rebellion so fitr as its con tinuance for another year is concerned, is dependant on the battles that may possibly have been fought ere this reaches many of our readers, and may not come off for weeks to come—a de lay conscpcntly of a few days, weeks, months, is of but secondary conse place, in comparison to the importance of the result. Let our young gonorni have cllr centißgedknnfideiieti, - and )et ourpatienc©lie eXereised to the extent; that when he does Make the debisive Pi*, 'the result will prove the wisdom of his gene ' ship by its decisiveness iii the contest. A cotemporary speak ing upon the subject very properly re- marks, that— " The delay has been worth a score of victories. It has converted raw levees into a well-disciplined army, and taught them to handle weapons ; it has replaced incompetent with skilful offi cers; it has multiplied indefinitely our artillery and munitions of war; it has very nearly completed several expedi tions, the success of which is scarcely a matter of doubt; it has placed de tachments of the army at points from which they may advance with the best warrant of triumph; it utilized those vast contributions of money which popular patriotism poured into the treasury " To the enemy it has brought no benefits. Theirfinancial crudities have already resulted in failure; they are destitute of the necessaries of life; their army is half clad, and utterly unprovi ded against the inclemency of winter. Food is held at famine prices. Busi ness of all kinds is suspended. The Richmond usurpation has taken pos session of all the railroads, and uses them for the transportation of troops and supplies, to the exclusion of ordi nary traffic. Specie is at 40 per cent. premium. The Banks are insolvent. The circulating medium is worthless; there are no credits; merchants, whose stocks are exhausted, can nowhere re new them. Ruin, in short, reigns everywhere supreme; and discontent, which the news of a peaceful settlement of our issue with England, must con vert into utter despair, is universal.— All these consequences of delay have enured to the advantage of the Govern ment, and must render the progress of its arms, when it is inaugurated in full force, absolutely irresistible. And it will then be seen whether or not the plans of the Administration have been wise and far-seeing, and whether the Northern or the Southern type of fret fulness is the more reasonable."
