August, 10, 1562.
FRIEND LEWIS :—The Huntingdon
County Bible Company arrived at
the Depot at nine o'clock, P. XL,
Thursday, and partook of refreshments
ordered by the Captain; then we were
called into line, the Captain read a
portion of scripture, and led in prayer,
which has been our programme every
night and morn since our stay here,
and we trust will be to the end. We
were assigned our quarters in camp on
Friday morning, and after all necessa
ry preliminaries for comfort were end
ed, and the boys awaiting the hour to
be examined and sworn into service,
the Captain arrived with the intelli
gence that all members of the compa
ny under 21 years of age were requir
ed to have the written consent of their
parents before being mustered into
service; and you may imagine how
many gruff words—sour looking coun
tenances—and biased opinions there
were when 02 were under parental di
rections and 45 not. This,
was an oversight; the authorities not
informing all, in recruiting service ;
for it is a fact that some were notified,
as almost all the Blair County compa
nies were provided with writings ; this
being the result of their recognition.
However, Capt. Wallace secured our
position in the nine months service.—
We were examined on Friday evening
and as soon as the minors receive writ
ten permits from their parents, we will
be sworn in ; this I learn will be to

Interesting Letter from the Army.
We ftre permitted to publish the fol
lowing letter from one of our Hunting
llAmusoN s LANDINo, Aug. 3, '62
FRIEND U. B. Ifinvis :—We are well,
wishing you all the same. All was
quiet here till night before last, the
rebels taking it into their heads to
shell us awhile, which they did in fine
style for an hour or so, but our chaps
were on the look out for the Gray
Jackets, and sent such a hail storm of
shell across the river at them that
must certainly have made the "Crea
sers" think the "Yanks" were really
-in earnest; so the night was made
hideous with the shrieking, hissing and
exploding of shells, and occasionally a
gun-boat shell could be heard roaring
and crashing through the air on its
passage over the river to administer
that justice so justly duo the disciples
of Jeff Davis & Co. We now have a
force of men over the way watching
the movements of the rebels; we are
looking for a general pandemonium in
these " diggins " before long. Let
them come on ; if they attack us at
this point, rest assured that they will
get one of the soundest thrashings
they have vet received ; we are realty
for them, let them come from what
point they will. Ent as we are not I
able to advance on theta, we must re
main in this stronghold till reinforce
ments come on ; so hurry them up,
the time is precious. There should be
but little time squandered away in
volunteering in this great crisis; it is
every man's duty to come forward that
can do so conveniently, and battle for
his country, for, let me tell you, things
look a little serious. Just now the
question is simply this : Will we
erush the rebellion at once, or will we
prolong the war? We have the Union
in our hands ; shall we hold it, or shall
we let it go ; Cod forbid the latter!—
We can hold it if our brave boys still
continue firm, but in order to keep up
this firmness, we must have assistance
and that quickly. Time is played out;
forward then at once, and we will
give you such a grand soldier's recep
tion and welcome, that none but true
and honest soldiers know how to give.
You that cannot possibly come, use all
your influence to get others thrward
where they are so much needed.—
Those that will not bravely come for
ward, should be ashamed to face a sol
dier after the war; they are not wor
thy to live in a country they are not
disposed to fight for. Now, Union
men, forward! double-quick ! march !
and never halt till we give you a sol
dier's reception at Harrison's Landing
and we will show you the way to
Richmond. The rebels knew our
weakness heretofore, and took advan
tage of us, but they now tremble and
fear since the North has ceased to feed
them with milk and honey, and have
become determined to crush the rebel
lion. The late orders are being strict
ly carried out in this department,
which cause the rebels to fear, as they
see that we are determined. Yester
day our men crossed over to the other
shore and burned five of the most
handsome residences on the river,
with all their splendid furniture, be
cause the owners permitted the rebels
to plant their batteries near their resi
dences to shell our camp and shipping.
Such treatment to the rebels will wake
them up, and give them to see that we
are now not afraid to carry out our
orders, no matter how severe they may
be. This one little act has waked up
our boys, and all is life and bustle
amongst us; we are now led to believe
that our venerable Uncle Sam is really
lin earnest; the, patriotism that has
been in the heels of our boys has sud
denly taken a rise, and is fast finding
its way to the right spot, and I would
say again to our young men, don't
have it to say that you were drafted
to fight for the glorious old banner.—
Come then, and let us make a long
pull, anda strong pull, and a pull alto-
Lgether, and clown conies Southern
chivalry and rebellion, and the "Bold
Soger can have the proud satis
fitction of returning to their homes
with the grand assurance that the
glorious old flag waves in triumph
throughout the whole Union.
Very resp'y, Enw.inn Pors.
MENTS IN INDIANA.
fl, Secret Organization of Traitors.
Presentment of the United States
In the District Court of the United
States for the District of Indiana,
The Grand Jurors of the United
States of America, within and for the
District of Indiana, empanneled, sworn
and charged in said District in said
May term thereof, having about com
pleted their labors (and being now rea
dy to adjourn) feel it their imperative
duty to announce in a respectful man
ner to this honorable Court the gener
al features of some startling develop
ments made during their investiga
tions. These developments when con
sidered in connection with the disturb
ed condition of the country by reason
of the causeless and atrocious rebellion
against the Constitution and laws of
the land, are deemed of the gravest im
portance, and should be made known,
that prompt and efficient measures
may be taken by the civil and milita
ry authorities to meet and ward off
the effect of the wicked and treasona
ble designs of those connected with
A recent act of Congress made it
the duty of the Grand Jury to inquire
into any combinations or conspiracies
formed by individuals within the juris
diction of the Court to prevent the ex
ecution of any law of 'the United
States. Having heard that organiza
tions, with this object in view, existed
in certain localities, witnesses were
sent fur, and brought before the Grand
Jury. These witnesses came from
many counties, and lived in various
parts of the State. After a careful and
diligent examination of the testimony
from witnesses well acquainted with
the facts deposed, and haring a person
al knowledge of the matters, said Grand
Jury are constrained to say that a se
cret and oath-bound organization ex
ists numbering some fifteen thousand
in Indiana, as estimated by the mem
bers of their order, commonly known
as Knights of the Golden Circle, and
even in the same localities by different
names. Their lodges, or " Castles,"
as they denominate them, are located
in various parts of the State, yet they
have common signs, grips, and words,
whereby the members arc able to dis
tinguish each other, and passwords to
enable the member to enter the castle
in which he was initiated, or any oth
er which such member may choose to
visit. They have signals by which
they can communicate with each oth
er in the day or in the night time, and
above all, they have a signal or sign
which may be recognized at a great
distance from the person giving it.—
This last signal, we regret to say, was
invented for the use of such members as
should, by nk. , ans of the draft, or other
wise, be compelled to serve in the rants of
the army. In such case, members of
the order serving in opposing armies,
receiving the sign, are reminded of
their obligation not to injure the member
giving it. This signal is given in ev
ery instance upon the 'illation of a
new member, and its observance is
strictly enjoined upon every individu
al belonging to the order. By the
teachings of the organization, it is the
duty of its members engaged in the
present war, although arrayed on op•
posite sides, upon the sigigil being giv
en, if they shoot at all, ‘rto shoot over
each other." Many members of the or
der examined before us admit the bind
ing force of the obligation and pretend
tojustify it as correct in principle.
Said Grand Jury would respectfully
submit that the effect of such obliga
tion is to set aside the oath taken by
every soldier when he enters the ser
vice of the United States. The obli
gation imposed by the organization
alluded to is inconsistent with the dit
ties of a soldier, who in battle, dare not
spare the person of his enemy. We
must either disarm or destroy him,
and especially so long as the rebel
may be seeking to take the life of the
loyal soldier. To do otherwise would
be grossly treacherous, and justly sub
ject the guilty party to a traitor's
From the evidence introduced be
fore said Grand Jury, it would seem
that the order called the Knights of
the Golden circle had their origin in
some of the Southern States, and was
introduced into this State from Ken
tucky. Its primary object, when it
originated. was to organize the friends
of the institution of African Slavery
in the United. States, for the purpose
of acquiring more territory in Mexico
and the Central American States, and
also for the acquisition of Cuba, there
by to extend and foster a great slave
empire, even though it should dye
those countries in human blood.—
Hence the various raids made upon
those countries which have called
forth, from time to time, the procla
mations of our former Presidents, de
nouncing such attempts, and threaten
ing the exercise of the power of the
Government to put them: down.—
Wicked as these hellish schemes were,
said Grand Jury would not have trou
bled this honorable Court with this
presentment had the machinations of
the Knights of the Golden,Circle been
confined solely to their original de
signs. Finding how useful such an
organization was for the purpose orig
inally intended, said Grand Jury be
lieve that it not only extends at pros
cut through every part of the South,
and every department of tho rebel ar
my : but during the last winter and
spring was introduced into the State
of Indiana and other Northern States.
Since that time it has made alarming
progress in our midst with entirely
now features attached to it in view of
the unnatural conflict now desolating
our country. Not only are the loyal
soldiers in the army to be treacherously
betrayed in the bloody hour of battle,
by the signals befbre referred to, but
said Grand Jury have abundant evi
dence of the membership binding
themselves to resist the payment of the
Federal tax and jn•erent enlistments in
the armies of the United States._
It is a fact Worthy of note, and con
clusively shown, that in localities
where this organization extensively
prevails there has beo it failure to fur-
nish a fair proportion of 'volunteers.—
Said Grand Jury, after a thorough ex
amination on that point, have been an
able to find any instance where a member
of said organization had volunteered to ;
fight for the Union under the late re
quisition for -volunteers. Said Grand
nrj- were informal this ton individual
of the Order had proposed to make up
a company to be called "Jayhawkers, !
composed exclusively of "Knights of
the Golden Circle." But said Grand '
Jury believe that at no time was the'
proposition seriously entertained, but
in fact only intended as a cover to hide
their treasonable purposes when they
found they were about to be discovered.
The meetings of the Order referred
to are holden in by places, sometimes
in the woods, and at other times in
deserted houses. Its members fre
gnently attend with arms in their hands,
and in almost every instance armed
sentinels are posted to keep offintruders.
Youths not more than sixteen years of
age, are in many cases introduced and
initiated into its mysteries. The cred
ulous and unwary are often allured
into the fold of the Order, upon the
pretext that it was instituted for no
other purpose than the better organi
zation of their party. Its real charac
ter and teachings are sedulously con
cealed until the oath of secrecy has
been in due form administered. Hav
ing taken the first degree, the initiate
is thmiliarized with the obligations and
opinions of his associates, and is grad
ually prepared for the second degree.
When he is further taught and found
apt to learn, and ready to adopt its
principles and teachings, bo is obliga
ted in the highest degree, and is turned
out upon the country a thorough trai
tor, with the wicked purposes already
specified. Said Grand Jury are happy
to know that in many cases individu
als, after their first introduction into
the Order, seeing its evil tendencies,
hare abandoned it, although unwilling,
cm account of their obligations of se
crecy, and for fear of personal violence,
are reluctant to fully expose its treach
Since said Gr?lnd Jury began said
investigation, iL has been discovered
that the Order exists among the pris
oners Df war now in Camp Morton,
who refuse to testify, upon the ground
that it may implicate the members of
their Order in Indiana. and thereby
injure the cause of the Southern Con
For the purpose of evading any legal
liability, in case of judicial investiga
tion, it appears that their signs are to
be used to enable them to get mem
bers of their Order on the jury, in case
of criminal charges being preferred
against them, and by changes of ven
ue, and appeals from a judge who does
not belong to the order, to create ju
dicial delays, until they can find a
judge or juror belonging to this order,
and thus escape all legal liability.
Said Grand Jury have no doubt that
the order of the "Knights of the Gold
en Circle " exists in many localities in
Indiana where their vigilance has not
been able to penetrate. They have
labored under• many difficulties in their
researches, and have drawn evidence in
most of the eases from, mctrillinj tcitnes•s
es. ;Judicial oaths have but little bind
-lug force where individuals once con
sent to abandon Abe allegiance they
owe theii country. The general facts,
however, so far as they hare come to
the knowledge of the said Grand Jury
have been submitted to this honorable
Court. They feel it their duty to do
so. The safety of the country in this
hour of peril and civil strife demands
it at their hands. Tho power of such
an organization to do harm, acting as
one man, with the purpose in view,
with their influence, may be apprecia
ted by the honorable Court. It is the
place where treason is concocted—the
nest where traitors are hatched. \

fully ask this Court that this their pre

The Grand Jury of the Circuit and
District Court of the United States
during their three weeks' session, have
performed more labor than any jury
ever before assembled at the Capital.
Near two hundred witnesses were
sworn and examined. Sixty indict
ments were written by the attorney
for the Government and returned by
the jury, sixteen of which were for trea
son, and against the fbllowing persons:
Jesse Fuller, Solomon Coker, Nathan
iel Hicks, Theodore Applegate, Noah
McCollister, Thomas Cole, Andrew
Mefford, Win. l3rownlec„Tohn lluest,
Adam R. Johnson, Richard Lambert,
William Lukens, Andrew Huston, Tay
ler Mefferd, Robert Slaughter, James
Thompson alias James McConnell.
There were also eighteen indictments
returned againstpersons for conspiracy
to take and possess the property of
the United States, and thirteen for
conspiracy to defeat the operations of
this law. The character and objects
of a secret organization were inquired
into and fully exposed and found to be
a hot-bed of treason. The country
owes this jury a debt of gratitude
for their thorough investigation. It
is deemed impolitic to make public the
names of other parties indicted until
arrests are made.
AFFAIRS IN RICHMOND.
Mr. F. 11. Osgood, a native of Nay
erhill, Massachusetts, a highly intelli
gent gentleman, has lately had the
good fortune to escape from the tyran
ny of rebeldom. Mr. Osgood says
that Richmond is one immense hospi
tal of wounded soldiery. All the large
warehouses, from Ninth street to Sev
cgteenth, are crammed with them, so
are also many of the private residen
ces. The rebels admit that the slaugh
ter of their troops during the seven
days fighting was enormous, in fact, a
denial of it would be ridiculous in the
face of the present appearance of the
rebel capital. In many cases the au
thorities even impressed the dry goods
and other stores into hospital service,
forcing the proprietors to yield them
for that purpose in view of the emer
gency that had been forced upon them.
The Spotswood hotel has also been
put to the same use. The number of
Union prisoners and wounded Union
soldiers in Richmond does not, in Mr.
Osgood's opinion, mneh exco‘al tour
thousand all told. There is, he says,
a strong Union sentiment in the city,
to the extent, he thinks, of about one
third of the population. All males in
the city, from sixteen to sixty years,
of age, aro compelled to bear arms,
those from sixteen to eighteen, and
from forty-five to sixty, being ranked
as the second class militia. The city
is governed by military law, the chief
spies and detectives being made up of
Plug Uglies from Baltimore. There
are many civilians now imprisoned for
refusing to take the oath of allegiance,
and these, as well as the loyal portion
of the population, aro praying for the
advent of the Union army. The ne
grecs, he says, are ripe for rebellion,
but are exceedingly cautious. The
citizens fear them, and if they should
once rise in rebellion the scenes enac
ted will . be horrible. The daily ration
of a rebel soldier now is eighteen oun
ces of flour and half a pound of bacon.
As a specimen of prices in Richmond,
Mr. Osgood says common home-made
pants sell for $22 per lair; a box of
matches, such as can be bought hero
for one cent, there brings fifty cents;
a drink of mean whiskey costs fifty
cents; shoes $2O per pair. There is
no specie there whatever in common
use. Mr. Osgood knows of but one
broker in Richmond ; he has all the
specie, there is, and sells it at $2.25 in
Confederate money for $1 in gold or
silver, Quinine, a most necessary ar
ticle in that section, sells for $45 per
ounce. All they are able to procure
of this article is smuggled into the ci
ty from Baltimore. The ignorance of
the rebel soldiery is surprising. One
eighth of them actually believe that
President Lincoln is a negro, and will
not be convinced to the contrary.—
There were rumors in the city that
General Joe Johnston is dead. The
avenues to his house are blockaded,
and no -chicle of any kind is allowed
to pass by it. The negro boy who at
tends at the General's house told Mr.
Osgood that he had not seen that dig
nitary fbr nearly five weeks, and that
when he last saw him ho was surroun
ded by doctors, who commanded per
fect silence to be kept in the house
and vicinity. Another rumor which
gained credence in the city was, that
Beaure , ard had become insane and
was sent South in order to recuperate
his health. The number of rebel
troops now in the vicinity of Rich
mond, Mr. Osgood estimates at about
two hundred and twenty-five thous

On the 27th ult., at 4 45 P. M., when
fifteen miles north of Mitnzanilla while
the passengers were dining, an alarm
of fire was given. The steamer was
promptly headed for the shore, 3l miles
distant, the flames making fearful head
way. At a quarter after 5 o'clock the
upper deck fell in, and soon after the
steamer struck the beach. The passen
gers and crew who had not got into
the boats jumped overboard and en
deavored to swim ashore. About one
hundred, including five children, swam
or were washed ashore alive.
The ship was burned to the water's
edge, and soon disappeared.
Those on shore made their way to
near Manzanillo as the steamer St.-
Louis arrived up from Panama. -
Some few others escaped to Manza
nilla in boats. One boat, with thirty
persons on board, has not been heard
from, and probably made the shore
son th of Manzanilla,
The steamer St. Louis arrived here
to-night, bringing seventy-eight of the
Golden Gate's passengers, all that are
known certainly to be saved, and a
portion of the crew.
Captain Hudson and a part of the
crew remained at Manzani]la to look
after the missing. passengers.
