Our Flag Forever
We have not the time nor the incli
nation, to don personally, a large num
ber of persons who have unsettled ac
counts upon our books of several years
standing. We shall, therefore, from
day to day, without respect to persons,
place into the hands of a Justice for
collection, all accounts of over two
years standing. All those who wish
to save expense, will do well to give
us a call.
• A SUOGESTION.—We notice in our
exchanges that meetings have been held
in several county towns, and commit
tees appointed to inquire after and see
to the wants of sick and wounded sol
diers. As this county has hundreds of
rive boys in the field, we think there
.should be a committee appointed im
mediately to look after the sick and
wounded, and if advisable, have them
brought home at the expense of the
county. It is asking too much off the
immediate friends of the brave young
men, to expect them to give their last
dollar for the cause. Every citizen of
the county has an interest in the cause.
We suggest that a meeting be held at
the Court House on Saturday evening
We have the glorious news by the
Harrisburg Morning Telegraph of this
morning, that Gen. McClellan has ta
ken RICHMOND. We cannot expect to
get any particulars before to-morrow
or next day.
We hope Davis, his Cabinet, and his
Congress, have been taken prisoners,
and that their necks may be stretched
in the mostpublie place in Richmond.—
Then, the Southern Confederacy will
bo " played out."
Bononon Cousom.—The following
'Standing Committees of the Council
for the present year, have been appoin
ted by Chief Burgess Benedict, viz :
Finance—Graffus Miller, H. K. Neff,
William Summers.
Public Property—Wm. B. Zeigler,
Alex. Carmon, J. H. 0. Corbin.

Glorious News from the Old North
(From the Newbere Progi'esv,.lls3 lE]
The information which we give be
low is gratifying to the lover of his
country. North Carolina at last be
gins to awake to the fact that J. Da
vis & Co., have been making a cat's
paw of the Old North State to poke
their chestnuts out of the fire, and re
fuses longer to submit to the disgrace
and burden which has been imposed
upon her by the scoundrels at Rich
mond. The old patriotic fires which
burned so brightly at Alamance and
Mecklenburg are rapidly developing
themselves, and we trust will burn
with an increasing brilliancy upon the
altars of liberty. North Carolina is
in a fair way of being regenerated
from the thraldom of sin and rebellion.
We trust that this may prove the har
binger of better days, and that bright
prospects are ahead for our beloved
country. We obtain the news by way
of Washington, and direct from Ral
The arrest of Mayor Respess, of
Washington, N. C., who was seized in
the night time in the most summary
manner and hurried off to Richmond
in irons, is creating a most intense ex
citement in the State. The Governor
of the State, (who is not in prison, as
reported,) backed by the Convention,
sent a peremptory demand to the Rich
mond authorities for the immediate
delivery of the person of Mayor Res
pess, who was kept in close confine
ment. His trial was in progress when
they received the demand, and the au
thorities at Richmond informed the
committee sent by Governor Clark
that there were a few more witnesses
to appear in the case, and that they
desired to complete the trial. The
committee informed the authorities at
Richmond that the person of the may
or must be delivered up forthwith, oth
erwise North Carolina would send a
force to back up the demand of the
Convention. Mr. Respess was deliv
ered over to the committee, and went
to Raleigh rejoicing. He was set at
liberty and is now on his way home
to Washington, where the Union citi
zens are preparing to give him an ova
tion. This committee was also in
structed to, and did, deliver an order
to the Virginia chivalry that North
Carolina was capable of' managing her
own affairs, and that "no more of her
citizens must be taken out of the State.
In connection with this matter we
also learn that J. Davis, a few days
since ordered Gov. Clark to furnish
them all the means of transition and
defence possible to aid them in the pas
sage to and through the cotton States,
and also for additional troops. Gov.
Clark, backed by the Convention, in
formed him that he had received all
the aid from North Carolina that he
could expect, and that hereafter no
more troops would be permitted to
leave the State, and has ordered all the
North Carolina State troops home.
Gov. Clark informed the rebels that
they could use the railroads in retreat
ing homewards, and that they would
run their own risk of being intercep
ted by a Union force at any part of
the State.
The above information comes from
a member of the Convention.

Opposes the Aot of the Rebel Mili
tary Authorities.
[From the Raleigh, N. C., Standard, April 26.]
State of North Carolina, Executive,
_Department, Raleigh, April 15, 1862. i
—By an advertisement in the public
papers, signed W. S. Ashe, you are in
formed that he will appoint and send
agents through every county in the
State to borrow, purchase, and, if ne
cessary, to impress all the arms now
in the hands of private citizens.
Any attempt to seize the arms of
our citizens is directly at variance
with. our Constitution, and in opposi
tion to the declared policy of the Gov
ernment, which makes it the duty of
every citizen to keep and bear arms,
and protects the arms of the militia
even from execution for debt.
But while I notify you that these
agents have no lawful authority to
seize your private arms, and you will
be protected in preserving the means
of self-defence, I must enjoin upon
you in this exergency, as an act ,of.
the highest patriotism and duty, that
you should discover to the proper
State authorities all public arms, mus
kets or rifles, within your knowledge,
and of selling to the State all the arms,
the property of individuals which can
be spared.
The colonels of the several regiments
will act as agents for the State, and
will notify me whenevereuch arms are
recovered or offered to them. Their
prompt and earnest attention is called
to the execution of this order.

From General McClellan's Army.
The Troops in Motion Toward Rich
WHITE HOUSE, nay 10.—The army
commenced moving at An early hour
this morning in the direction of Rich- '
mond and will encamp some miles in
advance of this place. The advance
of Gen. Stoneman reached the rail
road bridge over the Chickahominy
yesterday. It is a long trussel bridge,
two spans only of which are burned.
It can be rebuilt in a very shorttime.
The enemy's pickets are guarding
the whole line of the river in front of
Richmond making it very difficult to
obtain any information from that city.
Gen. McClellan went on a reconnois
ance to the Chickahominy to-day and
the programme of operations in front
of Richmond will soon be decided upon.
From Gen. Banks' Command.
Disbandment of Rebel Cavalry.—Fin
motion of Guerilla Bands.
STRASBURG ; May 19.—1 t is currently
reported and credited in military cir
cles that 2,900 rebel cavalry attached
to the different commands have been
disbanded and formed into Guerilla
bands, occupying the various moun
tain ranges and fastnesses.
Gen. Geary a few days since learned
that one of these bands was in a cave
five miles from Rectortown, and made
arrangements to surround and capture
them. On reaching the cave he ascer
tained that the band had vacated it
the previous day. A party of forty
men, with horses, had evidently been
there for some time,living sumptuously,
judging from the empty bottles, boxes,
cans, &c. It is probable they were a
portion of the force which captured
tieary's guard train near Linden last
week, and retreated toward Warren
ton on Shields' approach.
Gen. Geary has been ordered to re
port to Gen. Banks in future. He has
been relieved from guarding the lower
portion of the Manassas road which
duty ho has performed for several
weeks to the extent of fifty miles.
131ne Ridge and adjacent ranges and
spurs are infested with guerillas who
watch every opportunity to shoot and
capture our pickets and foraging par
ties. Their familiarity with the moun
tain defiles and passes enables them to
chide pursuit.
Bombardment of Richmond.
The City Defended by Works Eight Miles
Long, Mounted with the Most
Approved Ordinance.
The Stevens battery, known as the
Naugatuck, has just arrived here from
the scene of action in front of Rich
mond, and 1 have some interesting de
tails of the important operations of
Commodore Rodger's fleet in the upper
waters of the James river.
It seems that our iron-clad sloop-of
war Galena proceeded up the river,
leading the fleet, and silenced the many
minor batteries that lined the shore,
until the fleet had arrived at a point
in the James river about eight miles
below Richmond, where there is a bluff,
upon which a series of strong batter
ies have been constructed up to the
Those batteries were found to be
mounted with superior rifled guns of
very heavy calibre.
The Galena was moored in close to
these shore batteries yesterday morn
ing, and opened a terrific fire upon
them, the Monitor, - Naugatuck and
other vassels assisting.
At first, the shot of the rebel guns
rolled off the sides of the Galena, ma
king only dents in. her mail, but grad
ually, after five hours' fighting, it was
found that the steel-pointed balls used
by the rebels were piercing her.
Thirty shots struck her and lodged,
whilst two wont entirely through her,
tumbling out on the other side.
A shell burst in the Galena during
the engagement, which unfortunately
killed seventeen of the crew and
wounded nineteen. But even this sad
accident did not dishearten the brave
Capt. Rodgers and his crew. They
fought on until dark, and until their
ammunition had nearly given out.

Captain Constabiii, I after firi ng seven
magnificent shots, her splzndid hew

a piece of the flying metal. We are
happy to learn that he is not seriously
A flaw was discovered in the metal,
and this was, no doubt, the cause of the
explosion. •
Lieut. Morris, in command of the
gunboat Port Royal, and late of the
Cumberland, was slightly wounded.
Commodore Rodgers was wounded
painfully, but not seriously, in the left
These are all the casualitics heard
of up to the sailing of the Naugatuck
for Fortress :Monroe.
The slaughter among the rebels in
the batteries is said to have been ter
rible, although they had the advan
tage of our gunboats in having the
batteries situated on a bluff.
The fight will be renewed shortly,
when Commodore Rodgers hopes to si
lence the rebel forts, and if bie,esm pass
the obstructions known to be placed in
the river above the batteries, he will
take the city.
4 mortar boat was greatly needed
during the action, as with it the bat
teries could have been taken quiet
easily. .
The Monitor was at lask . accounts
ahead, no ball yet fired by the enemy
having any effect upon her iron-clad
Secretaries Welles and Seward took
a trip up the James river yesterday, on
the steamer Baltimore, as far as James
town, accompanied by Commodore
Goldsborough and Capt. Dahlgren.
The excursion party returned this
morning looking a little troubled after
reading Corn. Rodgers' private dis
patches, which are said to reflect a lit
tle upon certain dignitaries hereabouts.
Senator Lane, of Indiana, Hon. Jos.
Segar and several. other Congressmen
and distinguished gentlemen from
Washington, accompanied by a few
ladies, arrived this morning, and paid
a visit to Norfolk and Portsmouth.
The Naugatuck will take anothei
gun on board, and proceed up the
Tames river to renew the fight as soon
as possible.
The reports from Gen. McClellan's
army to day place his advance within
ten miles of Richmond, and he is mov
ing on.

MESSRS. SUITORS :-As you have not

\T., for some time, and for the sake of
many friends that are interested in
the welfare of the soldiers from Hun
tingdon county,
who will be glad to
hear from us, will give you a little
I suppose you have hoard before
this time of the capture of ten of our
men by therebel cavalry at this station.
We hare been, for some three or four
weeks back, laying at Piedmont Sta
tion, about ten miles east of this,
ing the bridge and railroad. On Tues
day afternoon, (May 14,) we received
orders from - Brig. Gent. Geary to pro
ceed to Linden Station, take possession
and guard the railroad, to prevent the
destruction or impeding of the opera
tions of the railroad ; sending the com
pany wagons with a guard by the road
and that transportation would be fur
nished to the company by the railroad.
On Wednesday mornin ,,, b we sent the
wagons with a guard of fourteen men
under command of Sergeant McCabe;
there being no danger along the route
they would pass, it was thought enough
to guard the wagons, but, unfortunate
ly,-the train that was to bring us up
was detained some two hours, they ar
riving at this place about one hour
and a half before the company. - In
about half an hour after their arrival
they were suddenly surprised by see
ing Rebel cavalry coming in on them
from almost every direction, from off
the mountains. Scrgt. McCabe and
private Joseph Madison happened to
be a short distance from the depot, and
not having time to rejoin their compan
ions theyjumped the fences and ran
through a field up the mountain, with
the cavalry after them as fast as their
horses would carry them, but they had
about two or three hundred yards the
start of them and got into the bushes
and eluded them. The cavalry hunted
through the woods, but the men sat
down and looked at them until they
left and rejoined their command.—
Sergeant McCabe and Madison then
pushed on toward Markham, where
Cos. G and Il were stationed, but they
had not gone half a mile before we met
them. They stopped the train and
told us of the capture of the whole
party save themselves. The train was
then ordered forward as fast as possi
ble to see if we could not catch them
still at the station. As we ran into
the station the rear guard, four or five
in number, were seen leaving at a dis
tance of five hundred yards. Our boys
let them have a volley and they scam
pered off. We were informed by a
colored man, that came in yesterday,
that one of our balls went through a
cavalry man's hat, (a great pity it had
not been his head.) It would have
been perfectly useless to havelollowed
them into the mountain fitstnesses with
one company of infantry. We found
at the station one of our men, corporal
George C. Sneath, mortally wounded
in the abdomen. He was shot while
running across a lot and retreating to
a house. He was shot several times
after he had fallen, and the rebels were
only restrained by one of the citizens
running to him and begging of them
to desist. He then asked permission
of the officers to attend to him, which
he did with the kindness of a father,
for which he has received many bles
sings from our boys.
The rebels have the advantage of us
in this neighborhood, in knowing the
mountains so well, while we are perfect
strangers. The mountains roll more
in Virginia than in Pennsylvania, into
deep ravines and high mountains.—
Linden Station is on the summit of
Manassas Gap, of the Blue Ridge.—
The mountains roll up to the hoighth
of fifteen hundred or two thousand feet.
A greater part of the mountains about
this are cleared off and farmed by the
poorer class of Virginia, and conse
quently not so many slaves.
We learned from different sources
concerning the surprise of our men,
that the rebels came in in three divi
sions, directly off the mountains, and
by that means surrounded the men be
fore they knew anything about them.
The rebels numbered not less than four
hundred cavalry, armed with
rifles and carbines. Some of the citi
zens estimated them at six hundred,
commanded by Lieut. Col. Munsford.
It way most cowardly affair on their
part and was den‘.;;:a;;;;;! even by their
own men. They would never have at
tempted it if our whole company had
been bore, as they would have met
with a very warm reception I assure
you. They have not been seen in this
neighborhood since, nor will not, un
less we leave this. I understand to
day, that Genl. Shields met this same
party yesterday, and cut them up very
badly—l hope it may be so, it is not
official, but only rumor.
The names of the men arc as follows:
Corporal George C. Sneath, of Shir
leysburg, mortally wounded; Sergeant
Edwin McCabe, of Huntingdon, and
Joseph Madison, of Altoona, escaped;
Corporal Ephraim Baker, of Spring
field township, slightly wounded, Wm.
H. Glazier of HuntingdOii,' John N.
Salkeld of Fulton county, Thomas
White of Huntingdon, Goo. W. Bower
sox of Shirleysburg, Josiah M. Funk
and Wm. Cane, of Philadelphia. Geo.
W. Snyder of Orhisonia, Joseph A.
Miles of Tyrone, Samuel Kinard of
Stonorstown, and three Michigan Cav
alry, were all taken prisoners.
It is with sorrow that we announce
the death of private Samuel Sharrer
of Huntingdon, in the Regimental
Hospital near Rectortewn; Va., of ty
phoid fever. When we left he was a
great deal better, but received a back
set frpm want of care on his own par e t,,
arid died in 'twenty-four hours.
The loss of so many men out of the
ranks casts a gloom over the company
which is felt very much. The men of
our company aro like a band of broth
ers—the less of one from among them
missed by all. We hardly know the
company When it id in line, its' extent
being so From the finest-look

[From the Davenport (Iowa) Gazette, May 13,
Private letters received in this plade
give the particulars of an affair which
recently happened at Cape Girardeau
in which a lady of this city bore an ac
tive part. Mrs. Kendrick wife of
Capt. Frank Kendrick, of the Second
lowa cavalry, had been staying at a
hotel in that village for some time
when she was aroused one night by a
man at her room door, who desired ad
mittance, which was of course refused,
and on his persisting, she called for
help. He then fled, but came the sec
ond time, when she again raised the
alarm, and be ran off. The landlord
of the hotel then gave Mrs. Kendrick
a pistol, and advised her to use it, in
case- the scoundrel came again. lie
did so, and she then threatened to
shoot him if he disturbed her again,
when he left. TwO or three nights 'af
ter she was again awakened by the
rapping at her room door, and opened
it and asked him - what he wanted, and
if he remembered what she told him.
lle replied that he wanted to come in
and see her, and guessed she would
not hurt anybody.with an empty pis
tol, and then he tried to push her back
into her room, so as to enter and close
the door. Raising her pistol, she fired,
the ball entering tie neck near the jug
ular vein, and he fell dead on the spot.
Ire proved to be a prominent citizen
of the town, a wealthy man, and a lead
ing secessionist. When the news be
came known about town, a crowd of
his fellow secessionists mobbed the
house and threatened to hang Mrs.
Kendrick, and it is not improbable
they would have tried to carry their
designs if a guard had not been placed
around the house by the commander of
the federal forces at the Cape.
Mrs. Kendrick promptly made known
what she had done, and went before a
magistrate, who, after an examination,
gave her a certificate of honorable dis
charge; it is also said that the wife of
the deceased, who leaves a large family,
expressed her approval, under the cir
cumstances, of what Mrs. Kendrick
had done. The citizens also presented
her with a pair of elegant pistols,' as a
mark of favor. Mrs. Kendrick short
ly after joined her husband in the ar
my on the Upper Tennessee.
In this act, melancholy as is the ilia
that any man should thus bring down on
himself such punishment, Mrs. Ken
drick exhibited a determined heroism,
combined with true womanly dignity,
that does her much honor. Her act
will be applauded wherever it is known;
and were there a few more examples
of this kind, there would be far less
libertines in the world.

phin county, communicated to the
Senate of Pennsylvania, a sure remedy
for the bite of any kind of mad ani
mals. He said that his ancestors had
already used it in Germany 250 years
ago, and that he had always found it
to answer the purpose, during a resi
dence of fifty years in the United
States. He only published it from mo
tives of humanity. This remedy con
sists in the weed called Chick-weed.—
It is a summer plant, known to the
Germans and Swiss by the names of
Gauchneil, Rother Meyer, or Rother
lluchnerdarnt. In England it is called
Red Pimpernel; and its botanical name
is Angelica Phonicea. It must he
gathered in June, when in full bloom,
and dried in the shade. and then pul
verized. The dose of this for a" grown
person, is a small table spoonful, or in
weight a drachm and a scruple at once,
in beer or water. For children the
dose is the same, yet it must be admin
istered at three different times. In
applying it to animals, it, must bo used
green, cut to pieces, and mixed 'with
bran or other feed. For hogs the pal
verized weed is made into little balls
by mixing it with flour and water. it
can also be put on bread and butter,
or in honey, molasses, &e. The Rev.
Henry Mubfenberg said that in Ger
many 30 grains of this powder - are
given four times a day, the first day,
then one dose a day for the whole
week; while at the same time the
wound is washed out with.a decoction
of the weed, and then the powder
strewed in it. Mr. Kettering said that
ho in all instances administered but
one dose, with the most happy results.
This is said to be the same remedy
through which the late Doctor William
Stoy effected so many cures.
Gfossisa LINEN.—The ladies will
be interested in the following from the
Scientific American: Inquiry is frequent
made respecting the mode of put
ting a gloss on ;;;:n collars and shirt
bosoms liko that of new linen. Th!'!
gloss, or enamel as it is sow.ctimes
called, is produced mainly by friction
with a warm iron, and may be put on
linen by almost any person. The lin
en to be glared receives as much strong
starch as it is possible to charge it with,
then it is dried. To each pound of
starch a piece of sperm, parafline or
white was, about the F,lze of a walnut,
is usually added. When ready to be
ironed the linen is laid upon'the table
and moistened very slightly on the.sur
face with a clean wet cloth. It is then
ironed in the usual way with a flat
iron, and is ready for the glossing op
eration. For this purpose a heavy flat
iron, rounded at the bottom and pol
ished as bright as a mirror, is used. It
is pressed firmly upon the linen and
rubbed with Much force, and this fric
tional action puts on the gloss. El
bow grease is the principal secret con
nected with the art of gloss,ng linen.
Mr. David Yohe, of Pigeon Creek,
Washington county, Pa., went to the
bqtle-field of 'Port Donelson and had
disinterred as (he supposed) the body
of his son,'Who bad received a wound
during the fight, of which he after
wards died and was buried. The body
was conveyed home and re-interred
in the fkmily burial ground, at Pigeon
Creek, all the family being satisfied of
the identity-of the body, except a sis
ter of the deceased. Last week Mr.
Yohe was astonished at receiving a
letter from his son, whom he supposed
dead and buried, stating that after
some weeks' treatment in the hospital
he had recovered, so far as to be able
to rejoin his company and expected to
take part in the next battle. The joy
of the family can bettor bp imagined
