Tuesday Afternoon, July 1, 1862.
LOCAL 8.; PERSONAL
Fourth of July.
If there was ever a day since God
made the earth, that ought to be cele
brated by the American people, as a
nation, it is the 4th of July, 1862.
Wars, and rumors of wars, resound
back from one end of our country to
the other; the roar of cannon is heard
and the bristling of bayonets is seen in
every State of the Union, and our
people have been called upon to take
up arms against our brethren of the
South, in defence of the Union, the
Constitution and the Laws, which, as
an infuriated, ambitious mob, they seek
to destroy. With all this upon us. the
good God watches over and protects
ins from the wrath of those who have
declared against us, and asserts the su
premacy of the Stars and Stripes in
every part of our stricken laud where
ever flung to the breeze by our gallant
•soldiers. Have we not, then, cause for
rejoicing? Certainly we have, and let
:us do it, by having jollifications in every
part of the county convenient for the
people. But, in our hilarity, we should
riot forget to offer up thanks and pray
ers to him who vouchsafes us all these
privileges and bles'sings, ungrateful
and undeserving as we are.
THE 4TII IN HUNTINGDON
As far as we have been able to learn,
the only demonstration that will be
made in this place, will be a celebra
tion by the Methodist Sabbath School,
at Cottage Grove, where the usual
amount of the luxuries of life will be
epread befcre the delighted children,
and the usual spread-eagle speeches
will be made. The Free and Easy
Band will be in attendance, and dis
course some of their charming airs.
In the evening their will be a grand
.display of over twenty different kinds
of fire-works, at the Castalian Fount.
The delicacies of the season will also be
served up to visitors at this already
THE 4TH ON BROAD TOP
At 7.20, A. M., an Excursion Train
will leave the IL & B. T. depot for
Broad Top City, stopping at all inter
mediate points; returning, will leave
B. T. City at 4.30 P. 3f. and arrive at
Huntingdon at 9.23.
At Coalmont an Odd Fellow's and
Sabbath School celebration will take
place. A lively time is anticipated.
Patriotic speeches will lie made.
.At Barnet, or Powelton, one and the
'same place, the members of the Cath
olic faith have made extensive prepa
rations for celebrating the day in a be
coming manner. The services of able
speakers have been secured, the fatted
calf will be killed, and all is expected
to pass off as "merry as a marriage
At Broad Top City a Sabbath School
celebration will conic off. Able speak
ers will be present on the occasion.
Col. Morrison, the popular landlord
,of the city Hotel, will prepare a dinner
for the accommodation of those who
visit the city on that day. We can
.testify to the superior style in which
.everything is got up by the Col. and
his army of cooks. All who wish to
have a " gay and festive " time, and a
tip-top didner, should go to Broad Top
STEALING FRUIT, &e.—Now, that the
season for fruit and vegetables bas
, commenced, it may be well to call at-
.tention to the legal penalty prescribed
for trespassing gardens, orchards or
.other private grounds—stealing fruits,
flowers, vegetables, etc. Everybody
knows it is wrong to take a single ber
ry, or pluck a single flower, without
. the consent of the owner, but from
time immemorial there has been a lax-
ity in this respect, until boys and men
even think it a. small matter to tres
pass upon the property of others, and
, appropriate whatever suits them.—
Boys have become particularly troll
. blcsome in this respect, and in the cit
i ies and boroughs especially, it is next
to impossible to prevent depredations
~upon gardens and orchards. So great
;,had the evil become, that the Legisla
, Jure, two years ago, found it necessary
,to pass a stringent law for the punish
..3nent of this class of offenders.
It is only necessary for the injured
-.party to make information before a
„magistrate, and have the affender
,rested and held for trial—when the
,:testimony of the owner or occupant of
~ t he premises shall be admitted as cvi
, Another method of procedure is by
civil action before a magistrate, against
any person who shall damage any gar
den, orchard or field of growing crops,
in any manner whatever. Judgment
shall be given by the magistrate for
double the amount of the damage
proved to have been done, together
with costs of suit; one-half of the dam
age or penalty to go.to the use of the
..poor of the district in which the prem,
ises lie; and in default of payment,
the party may be committed to jail
for not less than one or more than
" A SWEET LITTLE BOQUET.—We re
ceived yesterday a sweet and beautiful
little baguet, presented by, as we un
derstood the name, Miss Annie Sieglo.

A PAIR OF RUNAWAYS.—On Satur
day evening, our young friend, Mr. W.
W. Wallace, hired a horse and buggy
from Mr. McManigal, to take an inva
lid friend, who was visiting this place,
out riding. Nothing unusual occurred
until they had got some distance from
town, when one of the hind wheels of
the buggy came off," spilling" the oc
cupants upon the ground, and fright
ening the horse so that ho run away.
The young men were not hurt, but
somewhat frightened. The horse took
the road home and was caught by the
gentleman who resides on Dr. MeMur
trie's farm the other side of Smithfield-
Mr. Wallace then borrowed a buggy
from this gentleman to bring his friend
(who was unable to walk from the ex
citement,) to town. The horse was
hitched to the buggy, the men got in
and started. All went on well enough
until they came to the bridge that
crosses the run at the upper end of
town, when the horse became fright
ened at something, and started off at
full speed, throwing Mr. Wallace out
just opposite Dean's Hotel. His friend
still remained in the buggy, but the
lines wore gone, as Mr. W. was dri
ving. The horse run at break-neck
speed up Hill street to Anderson's,
where he turned the corner and con
tinued up the cross street to Washing
ton street, where he again attempted
to turn, or did turn, and run along
Washington street, but he got on the
pavement, tearing up door steps and
trees, until he got in front of the Mos
ser property, where the coupling came
loose, turning the body of the buggy
upside down and throwing the sick
man upon the pavement. The horse
run on until he got to the end of the
street, where lie fell and laid until ho
was helped up. The result of the af
fair may be summed up as follows :
The destruction of two buggies ; a
slight injury to Mr. Wallace's right
shoulder, and a severe shock to the
invalid. Fortunately, he received no
sprains or bruises of any kind, but was
very much prostrated from fright and
excitement. He was taken into a
house just at hand and three or four
physicians called in, but they could
discover no injury. We are happy to
learn that he is recovering from the
Furs.—On Saturday last, some boys,
who were playing withsquibs,acciden.
tally set fire to the house of our neigh
bor, Mrs. Dorland. The fire was dis
covered, the alarm given, and the fire
extinguished before any serious dam
age was done. Had the fire got under
headway, no power that could have
been brought into requisition, would
have saved the entire block, as a gen
tle breeze was blowing, and all the
houses in the block, except one, are
frame, and as dry as powder. We
warn boys to desist from the careless
use of fire-works of every description.
We have no objection to the boys
using them on the fourth of July, if
they are cautions, but we enter our
protest against the promiscuous use of
them for a week before or after the 4th.
If they must use them, let them go
away from where there is any danger
of setting fire to valuable property,
which might cause the loss of thou
sands of dollars; if they injure them
selves by their carelessness, it is their
A WORD TO TILE BOYS.—We notice
that several handbills printed at this
office within the past few days, have
either been badly mutilated or torn
down altogether. Now, boys, we want
to tell you in all candor, that we will
not suffer such things to be done. We
wish to say to you kindly, that the
first one of you we catch tearing down
or in any way defacing any handbill
or circular issued from this office, we
will have arrested and lodged in the
stone institution at the head of Smith
street, and, we hope, Jailor Shoemaker
will feed you upon nothing hut bread
and water. Remember, we will be
no respector of persons. We don't
care who you are. If you cannot let
handbills alone, you ought to be in
jail. If you think a little while, you
will remember that we did, "once up
on a time," cage two or three boys for
committing the same outrage, and we
say, beware, or some of you will meet
with the same fate. " A

Tun NEW MOSES.—One of the Mor
mon Saints, named Morris, lately set
himself up as the Prophet Moses, new
ly descended upon earth, and no less
than a thousand of the deluded people
of Utah joined him and they formed a
settlement thirty miles north of Salt
Lake City. They were told that the
Lord would supply their wants; but in
default of that, they began to depre
date upon the property of the people
in their neighborhood. A military
force was sent against them, and after
an obstinate fight, in which Morris,
alias Moses, was killed, the gang was
overcome, a number of the men being
taken prisoners. The whole affair, of
which we haye but a brief telegraphic
report, is one of the queerest things of
this very queer age. It Qi ws that
there can be delusions among the Mor-
Mons even more extravagant than the
groat Mormon delusion itself.

An Honest Southern Account of the
Battle near Richmond.
[Correspontlouco of tho Charlestuo Mercury.]
RICK moND, Monday, June —With2.
regard to the engagement of Saturday
and Sunday, I can add little to the ac
counts which will have reached you
through the city papers. It appears
that our scouts reported 17,000 of the
enemy on this side of the Chickahom
illy, at a point between the York Riv
er railroad and the Williamsburg road,
some six or seven miles from the city,
and not very far from the fortifications
opposite Drury's Bluff. The swelling
of the Chickahominy by the storm, cut off,
as was supposed, all chance of reinforcing
these 17,000, and the attack, already
delayed, was begun, not at daybreak,
but at 10 or 11 o'clock.
The enemy was found strongly en
trenched and fully aware of our ap
proach. His strength had not been
very much over-estimated, if we may
judge by the regiments represented by
the prisoners taken. Of those nine
teen were mentioned in the morning
papers. There may have been 40,000
or 60,000 Yankees engaged, but nothing
proves it except their obstinate resistance
and our heavy losses.
Desperate courage carried entrench
ment after entrenchment, and captured
battery after battery. Late in the
evening of Saturday the enemy at
tempted to relieve himself by a heavy
flank movement on our left, but this
was promptly checked by Whiting,
and the day ended. Early on Sunday
morning the enemy made a terrible at
tempt to retrieve his losses of the day
previous, but he was again driven off
leaving us his entrenchments and en
campments, with the addition of a few
guns not taken by us the day before.
Thus matters continued until this
morning, when, as usual, we fell back,
permitting the enemy to re-occupy the
entrenchments from which he had
been driven at such fearful cost.
Our loss is very heavy, particularly in
officers. Berdan's Sharpshooters did
their work well, and unless something
is done to check them promotions in
the Confederate service will be alto
gether too rapid and certain. Our kill
ed may not exceed five hundred; our
wounded are pearly fivp fr.housand.
Gen. Johnston was wounded in the upper
part. f the right shoulder, the ball or frag
ment of shell passing over and burying
itself in the muscles that cover the shoul
der blade. In falling from his horse two
ribs were fractured. He is, therefore,
permanently disabled, at least for a month
'or so to come. General Lee assumes
command of the army. The number
of Colonels, Captains and Lieutenants
killed and wounded I will not pretend
to estimate. The enemy's loss,,except
at the „entrenchments, is ,ayt large.
Protected by his earthworks and the
dense undergrowth into which we
drove him, he poured a decimating fire
into our devoted ranks. This, without
rodomontade, is the result of the battle
I walked to within a mile an 4 a half
of the field yesterday morning, And
gladly accepted the offer of a friend to
ride back with him, The scene on the
road beggars description. Omnibusses,
wagons, caissons and other vehicles,
were stalled and wrQcked along the
road for miles. Iloraemen found it
difficult to traverse the continuoup mnd
puddleS throtigh which our bravo fel
lows - had marched to the sceminf con
flict; and were then marching under a
terrible sun. I told my friend that our
army must fall back, it being harder to
provision it over these seven miles of
mud than over the one hundred miles
of rail between this and Manassas.
The use of artillery and cavalry was
out of the question. Even the by paths
that led from the York River Railroad
to the Williamsburg road were almost
impassable, so boggy is the ground.

centrating a large force in the Mechan
