SHAVER'S CREEK, July 41869
MESSRS. EDITORS:—PIease be kind
enough to publish the enclosed list of
contributions by the patriotic citizens
of Shaver's Creek to the Soldier's Aid
Society of this place.
We have hitherto refrained from
publishing lists of our contributions,
from the fact that we labored under
the impression that they would be just
as thankfully received by our brave
soldiers, (who arc now enduring the
hardships and privations which con
stantly attend the soldier's perilous
life,) and be productive of just as much
good as though we had paraded them
before the public. But as some of our
Huntingdon friends have been kind
enough to insult our citizens repeated
ly, by asserting that " they had done
nothing for the soldiers," we have
come to the conclusion that it is neces
sary for us to let the world know that
we too are scraping lint, nothing cloth
ing, jellies, preserves, &e., for the sick
We beg leave to assure our Hunting
don friends that we have not been sit
ting with folded hands, while our brave
boys were suffering for comforts which
it, was in our power to supply. Ex
cepting the traitors and Southern sym
pathizers, the people of Shaver's Creek
have given liberally, and intend giving
more. Our Huntingdon friends have
done their part nobly, arid we honor
them for it, but we hope that in the
future they will be careful not to wound
the feelings of others (who have done
equally as well) by their groundless as
Although our committee met with
some bard rebuffs from the rebels of
this place, they have been able to col
lect, within the last two weeks, two very
large boxes of clothing, provision, &c.,
one firkin of apple butter, (containing
15 gallons,) 1 keg of eggs, and have a
handsome sum in the treasury yet.

of the guerillas they were met by a

Potomac, J uty 29, 1862.
Dr. Williams, who has been a pris
oner at Salisbury, N. U., for several
months, and who arrived here on Sat
urday, having been unconditionally
released, states that for ten days after
the battles in front of Richmond, a
thousand rebel troops passed through
that town daily on their way to Rich
mond, and more were on their way.
The Doctor's window overlooked the
railroad and depot, giving him a good
opportunity of ascertaining what was
going on. These troops came from
James Island and eastern Georgia.
Among other filets ascertained by
the Doctor was that eleven thousand
troops were at Charlottesville waiting
transportation to Richmond; that
thirty thousand conscripts lied been
raised in each of the States of Tennes
see and Georgia since the 9th of July,
and a proportionate number in the oth
er extreme Southern States, lie heard
the adjutant of Col. Goodwin, who com
mands the pdst at Salisbury, and who
had just come from Richmond, State
that the adjutant of General Hill told
him that the rebels had one hundred
and seventy-three thousand troops en
gaged in the battle of seven days. Dr.
Williams was accompanied by Dr. Stone
who was taken prisoner at Bull Run,
and who corroborates the statement
so flu• as relates to the movement of
troops on their way up to Richmond.
They passed long trains of empty cats
on their way South.
If these statements are true, and
there is every reason to believe that
they are, it shows that the rebels are

Speech of Daniel Dougherty,
Delivered at the Great Mt/. fleeting,
convened in Independence Square,
Philadelphia, on Saturday, July 26.
Weave assembled,,Americans, to de
cide whether our country shall live or
die, whether we shall be free men or
slaves; whether peace shall here again
permanently dwell, or this become a
land of dead men's skulls; whether the
fires of freedom shall blaze in beauty
until all the earth shall enjoy the per
feet day of constitutional liberty, or
the eternal night of despotism shall in
our time descend upon the world !
These are considerations that tower
in sublime proportions above all mean
er thoughts, and will tell the historian
whether we are a heroic -or degener
ate race ! whether this is the golden
age, or these the accursed days that
sold and sacrificed, when they m; 1 -t,ht,
have saved, the unborn millions of the
To address you, Americans, on such
a theme, fills me, with awe, and makes
me bcw in humble supplication to the
All-perfect, One, praying his omnipo
tent aid to inspire me for the cause !
In the midst of unrivalled prosperi
ty, with a Government the best that
mortals ever made, with argosies plow
ing the waves of every sea, and the
mighty armaments of every Power do
ing homage to our flag, a conspiracy,
long meditated and maturely planned,
has burst into bloody treason and re
bellious war. Perjured. ingrates, on
whom the choicest honors of the lie
public had been showered, lead on the
legions resolved to kill their country.
The tyrants of the earth are laughing
at our woes, and, with malignant joy,
regard the people as their slaves again.
It is in vain to dwell upon the past.
Behold the awful present ! The trait
ors of the South, with fiendlike fury,
aro striving to wrest from us three
fourths of the Republic, our most sa
cred localities, the battle-fields of the
Revolution, the graves of the immortal
dead, the cities built by Northern
hands, and beautified by Northern
taste and wealth—aye, the capital,
with its unnumbered millions of prop
erty, the statues of our benefactors,
the priceless memorials of the past,
the trophies of glorious wars, the heir
looms and archives of the nation. All
are in imminent jeopardy.
Nay, more: if they succeed, our
Northern cities will be sacked, our
homes desolated, our women and chil
dren exposed to the, polluted touch of
their brutal soldiery, the Union split
into twenty fragments, each warring
with the other; not alone in the regu
lar battle, but with poisoned cup, the
rope, the torch, the axe, and the knife;
anarchy following, until the living in
very agony, cry out for the protection
of a monarch, or wield submissively to
a despotism. These are the terrific
realities that even now cast their
shadows on this continent.
I cannot pause to argue, They are
clear to the mind of every thinking
man. If WO fail, they aro as sure to
follow as if an angel of heaven, with a
pen of fire, had written our fate along
the midnight sky,
Oh God I shall it be, that the peo
ple, crushed since creation, when at
last the priceless boon of liberty was
their own, by their own supineness
permitted it to be wrested from their
grasp forever? Shall the fruits of the
Revolution wither in our keeping ?

(From tholimund Examiner, July M)
There is a number of people in the
South who are detained from active
participation in the war by the con
fines of age or family. These people
may do a most valuable service to
the Government and make an import
ant contribution to the war by assist
ing in the apprehension of deserters
and stragglers from the army, by giv
ing information to the authorities of
the places of refuge of these creatures,
by setting their facesagainst them,
and by doing all that is possible to
drive back to their posts of duty those
who have skulked from them and are
roaming the country in the dirty and
disgraceful uniforms of soldiers.—
There should he no resting place for
the feet of these creatures. Every
man and woman in the country is able
to do something in pursuing, shaming
and driving back to the ranks those
who deserted their color and their
comrades arid turned their backs Upon
their country's service. Let all ages
and sexes in the country assist the
Government in reclaiming deserters
and stragglers, and in maintaining the
integrity of our army. Desertions are
reducing our army, defying its discipline,
corrupting its spirit and morals, - and se
riously endangering the fortunes of our
Desertions from the army are al
ready numerous and the country must
do what it can to repair the evil. The
filet is, however, that we should have
heard but little of this military crime
and public disgrace to our arms if the
Government had had the nerve and
the conscience to execute the death
penalty in its armies. The men who
are responsible for this shameful and
alarming frequency of desertions in our
armies are Jefferson Davis, George W.
Randolph and Robert E. Lee. The
crime of desertion is punishable with
death_; it is so b,y_the. Articles of War,
the practice of civilized nations, and
the precepts of intelligent humanity.—
It is no time for a mawkish tenderness
to trifle with the destinies of a whole
nation. The sentimental suspension
of the penalty of death in our army
is not only a mistaken humanity, it en
courages crime, sacrifices to childish
emotion the efficiency of our troops,
the safety of our country, the success
of our cause, and is a terrible cruelty
for which our Government stands re
sponsible hi the eyes of God and man.
An instance lately occurred where,
in the thee of the enemy, and in daily
expectation of a great battle on the
Richmond lines, a deserter who had
been apprehended in the ;very act of
entering the enemy's lines, and sen
tenced to death by a court-martial,
was respited three different times.—
The consequence of this weak indul
gence was a new crop of deserters;
the hesitation of the authorities to ex
ecute the law was the signal for new
violations of it, and to-clay the country
is filled with deserters, stragglers, and
absentees from the army, who laugh
at the terrors of court-martial, and the
penalties of having their pay stopped
and being advertised in the newspa
pers for crimes which, by law, custom
and 'necessity, deserve death. The
Government has toyed with sentiment
enough in this matter. The country
is engaged in a death struggle. If we
are subjugated there is no parallel to
the horrors of out- fitte, since the ruth
less atrocities of Attilla and his barba
rians. In such a contest the Govern
ment must be serious, and not weigh
the sentiments of preachers and hu
manitarians in petticoats against the
safety of the country, the letter of the
law and the doctrines of enlarged and
enlightened mercy ; which require that
discipline and efficiency should be
maintained in our army at the price
of death to deserters.
Extortionists In Rebeldom.
Mom the Richmond Examiner, July 22)
In the development of the war we
are waging„ there is one lasting stigma
on its moral character. We refer to
the almost universal rage in the south
of the vile lusts of avarice and extor
tion, in which native Southern mer
chants have outdone Yankees and
Jews, and have not only defiled them
selves, but inflict a burning disgrace
upon the nation, prostituted a noble
war to the most infamous purposed,
and blackened their country in the
eyes of the world.
The whole ,South stinks with the lusts
of extortion. The extent to which it
prevails in this city is enormous and
shameful; trade is reduced to a devil
ish art to make money out of the dis
tresses of humanity; and that hypocri
sy may be added to other diabolical
accomplishments, the extortioners of
Richmond take the upper seats in
church, talk patriotism and give into
the contribution boxes small pinchings
from enormous gains; dandy preach
ers and hospital matrons taking these
filthy gifts of the plunderers of society
as tokens of the liberality and patriot
ism of the donors,
The lengths to whleh extortion has
gone in this community are almost in
credible. A single instance may serve
as an illustration. Through the active
and enlarged exertions of the Govern
ment Clothing Bureau in this city,
contracts have been made with anum
ber of mills in the South by which it

has been agreed that they shall fur
nish supplies for the army at stipula
ted prices. Some days ago an officer
purchased at this Bureau for his use a
piece of cloth at two dollars and sixty
cents a yard. This, the Government
price, was largely remunerative to tho
manufacturer; it paid him a consider
able profit, and he was satisfied tei ob
tain that without grasping for the ut
termost gains of avarice and extortion.
The price of the same style of cloth,
manufactured at our ,doors in Rich

street; the reply was, 'sixteen and
eighteen dollars a yard.
The Yankees and the Negroes,
From the Richmond Dispatch, July 18.]
It appears from statements in the
northern newspapers that McClellan
proposes to employ negroes to perform
the hard labor on his fortifications,
with a view to save his troops from
the perils of sunstroke. This is the
sort of freedom the deluded slaves 'en
joy when they get into the Clutches of
the abolitionists. They are worked to
death, in order to save the lives of a
proportionate number of miserable
Yankees, not one-half of whom eftli
lay as much claim to respectability as
the blackest cornfield negro in Virgin
ia. We hope our authorities, in nego
tiating for an exchange of prisoners
will make the invaders account for at
least a portion of the " contrabands"
they have, stolen, though in nyvking up
their relative value -it should, appear that
one nigger was equal to two Yankees:,
