lIANDSOME TESTIMOSTALS.----All ele
gant sword, the handsomest we have
ever seen,_ was on exhibition at the
Broad Top Depot for two or three
days last week. The blade of the
weapon is of the finest steel, while the
hilt is of pure silver, superbly chased
and engraved. The scabbard is of
steel, heavily plated with gold, and on
which is inscribed the words:
Presented to Capt. .1. j. _Latorenceby the
employees of the Huntingdon and
Broad Top Railroad.
Major Lawrence was Superinten
dent on this road, and resigned at a
sacrifice to go into the army. The em
ployees have proven how highly they
esteem the man, and the man will
prove how nobly he will discharge his
duty as a soldier.
Another sword, very handsome,
though not casting as much as that for
3lr. Lawrence, was also on exhibition
at the same office. It was purchased
for Mr. Babb, of Hopewell, by the
workmen in the machine shop of the
same road. This sword is inscribed
with the words:
Presented to Captain A. Babb, by his
' friends and shop-mates, as a token of
esteem for him as a man and a soldier,
An just, 1862.
Both swords Nvere taken to 'Wash

HUNTINGDON COUNTY BouNry.---We
arc gratified to be able to say that all
the companies that left this county un
der the late call, have been paid their
bounty money in full. John Scott,
Esq., and Major George IV. Gurrettson,
left for Washington on Thursday
last, with money sufficient to pay
the full demands of every man. The
money was furnished by the County
Commissioners. Gen. Speer's compa
ny bad been paid the week previous,
by David Blair, Esq., out of his own
pocket, but of course the amount will
be refunded by the county.
THE four companies which volun
teered ynder the nine-months' call from
his county, are in the 12,3 th Penna.

as follows : Co. C, Captain Wallace ;
Co. I', Capt. 'Simpson, formerly Capt.
Lawrence's; Co. 11, Captain Gregg;

you, brave boys, a safe voyage through
all the dangers of the camp and battle-

homes with banners crowned with the
marks of many -% ictories.

fences, may be prevented doing so by
taking a large wire mid bending it in
the shape of a bow; then bend the

two strings to the wire, place, the hooks

My duties are of such a nature that
I afhticl I shall not be hble to write
you as regularly as I desire ; however,
when 1 do write, I shall speak of facts
as they exist, and things as lace them.
Any blunders that may occur in my
,will please overlook, a;
they will all be written in camp, amid
the excitement always attendant at
such places. I have so many things I
would like to speak of that scarcely
know where to begin, and to speak of
them all would swell my letter entire
ly beyond the /imitsbf a newspaper.
In the first place. our regiment is
numbered the 125th Pennsylva»ia, and
is composed of six companies from
Blair county, and four from Hunting
don, Our regimental are :J a
cob Higgins, of Blair county, Colonel;
Jacob ~rink, of Blair county, Lieut.
Colonel . ; J. J. Lawrence, of flouting
don, Major; R. M. Johnston, of Blair
county. Adjutant; Win. M. Bailey, of
Blair county, Quartermaster; Rev. J.

F. B. Davidson . s and Fay, Surgeons.—
We left Harrisburg on Saturday eve
ning, the Ifith inst., at 1 o'clock, and
arrived in Baltimore at 5 o'clock Sun
day morning. Wo got breakfast in
Baltimore at a Union Volunteer Re
freshment Saloon, and at 8 o'clock
started for Washington, D. C., where
we arrived at 11 o'clock, A. M., and
halted in-the street below.the Capitol
building, and quartered there until
evening, when we were marched to a
shed at the foot of the street, and
quartered over night. Next morning
at 9 o'clock, we took up the line of
march, crossed the long bridge over
the Potomac, and advanced about 4
miles into Virginia, where we are at
present encamped, but it is very un
certain how long we Shall remain
shall not attempt to speak of all
the scenes and incidents we have gone
through since we left home, but only
note such as will be of the most inter
est to those who read my , letter. I
must confess that I was much pleased
with the -appearance ,of Baltimore,
and very much disappointed in my ex
pectations of Washington—in fact the
only building worth mentioning in the
Capital of the United States, is the
Capitol building itself; which is the
grandest. and most "ma , »ificent struc
ture on the continent. would never
tiro looking at it, and admiring the
woundrons works of art. I am not
sufficiently posted to give a desription
of it; anyhow, it would be superfluous
on my part, as older and wiser heads
than mine have already given leng
thy descriptions, but, in my opinion,
have fhllcn far short of convey=ing any
thing like a correct idea of what the
building really is, and yet it is still un
Togo back over a part of our journ
ey here, I would say that the land be
tween Baltimore and Washington is
barren and ,sterile, and lots every ap
pearance of never having been proper
ly cultivated. A greater portion of
the land lying along the route of the
railroad, is grown up with bushes and
briars, and looks as if the people of ,Ya
ryland bad always paid more atten
tion to treason to the Government
than to agricultural pursuits.
Virginia, as fitr as we have advanc
ed into it, is one vast waste--one vast
encampment ground. Our regiment
is encamped in a held formerly occu
pied by the rebels, and latterly, as
winter quarters for Union troops.—
The dwellings of some, of the inhabi
tants in this vicinity-have been desert
ed, while others still remain and pro
fess to be loyal, which I very much
doubt, although outside appearances
indicate nothing else. I believe, and
I assert it here, that our army will
never make much headway until a
more vigorous mode of warfare is
adopted by those in an therity—i. e.
drive everything before it, and destroy
everything that comes in its way.
I do not know when I have road
anything more gratifying to me, than
when.l took up the last number of the
Globe and read the letter from the pen
of John Scott, Esq. Would that the
people of the North were unanimous
upon the sentiments which he expres
ses in that letter. Until such is the
ease, I fear the worst. As long as the
people of the North agitate political
questions, they need never hope to
crush this wicked rebellion. It grati
fies me to know that he will never be
come a tool to this bogus Democracy
which is trying to ride into power
while the majority of the loyal men
aro absent from their homes lending
their best efforts to save the Govern
ment from falling into the hands , of
Yon express my sentiments, and, I
believe, the sentiments of every other
nut in the Federal army, when yen
declare that you will "support no other
than an unconditional Union ticket,
pledged to the Government and a vigor
ous prosecution of the war." I sincere
ly hope the loyal people cf Hunting
don county will respond to the call
you make in your last paper, for a
" Union County Convention to put in
nomination a Union County Ticket."
If the loyal people will only respond I
think enough have been left toth warttho
designs of the sympathizers in your
midst. An "united action" must be
had, or you will be defeated. Exert
all - your influence in that direction, and
I feel confident that your efforts will
be rewarded with success.
The boys aro all well and in good,
spirits, with the exception of a few,
some of whom have a slight attack of
diarrhcca, caused by the sadden change
of water, while others are troubled
with bad colds. I would like to give
yon a short sketch of camp life, but my
letter has already assumed huge pro
portions, and I will reserve it for some
future letter, provided I ever feel like
doinf , so.

DEAR C4.onf: : o —At the expiration of
upwards of two Alecks' hard labor,
night and day, I seat myself to inform
you and your many correspondents
our whereabouts at present. We arp
located about five miles from Washing
ton city, beyond Arlitygtomficights, in
the mitrA of tented fields where new
regiments are coming and others leav
One half of .Our regiment has bean
detailed for the purpose of learning
the heavy artillery drill. In selecting
the companies from the regiment for
that purpose, lots were masted. Un
tbrtunately, (Jr rather, fortunately. Co.
drew blank. Tim remainder of the
regiment (it being five companies) are
almost hourly artleyed, by companies,
to some post of duty from camp, un
known to the balance of LllO regiment:
Co, 11, with Captain Gregg, Lieu
tenants John Flenner and Samuel F.
Stewart at its head, is a gigantic and
energetic company, learning military
tactics with rapid4ty. Many , of the
company being your old acquaintan
ces and patrons we know that it will
delight you to hear that we are pros
pering so well. Those of yodr ac
quaintance especially upon the Lick
Ridges are enjoying excellent health,
under the circumstances, and join in
heart and hand in sending their best
respects to you ; feeling confident at
the seine time that they are confiding
in a true and loyal Union man who
has battled with your public organ for
the Union since the commencement of
the War, notwithstanding you had op
position from those • that pretended to
belong to the same party which you
belong. But, friend Lewis, we say to
you that we oftentimes find wolves in
sheep's clothing and we are satisfied
that you have some such in your midst,
but front the sentiment and feeling of
the Union army their grave is dug and
their political career is no more,
The 125th Regiment, to which we
belong, is worthy of all respect froM
the good citizens of the Northern
States. They have established a sys
tem of moral and religious regulations
which is unknown to .the history of
war. Such wo believe will produce a
good effect upon the belance of •the
Union army when they join with us.—
We feel satisfied that our prosperity
in war depends upon a firm reliance
upon the Supreme Being. With Elm
on our side we march to duty endu
ring the hardships with that full con
fidence that right is oars and if we fall
in the performance of this duty we
I feel satisfied that we but pass from the
troubles of this life to glorious man
sions beyond the skies, where we nev

non, nor the clashing of arms.

FT. RICLIARDSON, near Washington, 1
August 27, 182.
Friend Lewis:—Since my last the
work of change has been learing.new
scones and actions for gazers and crit
ics to enlist partial judgment anti pre
sumptive powers upon, but with all
the moving and jostling about, the Hun
tingdon Co. Bible Company have in
creasing confidence in the motives and
dispositions of each other. It would
seem unnatural for men to be unallied
in the good cause of protecting and re
deeming this land of the free and the
home of the brave from the desperado
and traitor, 'but 'tis' a pleasure for
friends at home to know that there is
familiarity throughout the ranks—not
a fitmilittrity because of expediency,
but because all have an apparent de
sire to make their comrades congenial
associates and profitable companions.
This being our object, we feel each oth
or's cares and to each other friendly
aid afford; but while thus cherishing
social qualities ottren thusiasm has been
lulled from the high ascent to which
it had arisen, to dormancy and"repose
because the despatch in which we sail
ed from the old borough to this termi
nus was emblematic of a speedy jour
ney toward the foe we Caine to meet.
\.. T. '
however, the regiment has been di
vided, five companies detailed to forts
for artillery practice,—the remainder
are acting picket duty in doubtful re
gions. It has fell to our lot to be sta
tioned here, for how long and for what
events, the eonjOauring of any but a
wise seer would be vain srlpporiitien..._
We came here on Monday,
Tuesday Captain James D. Campbell
paid us a visit with Jim Cunningham,
Sheppord Westbrook, and other of the
boys Trom the Forty-ninth, who Were
welcomed ist,i,'th gladness; seats were
given the boys on knapsacks, and in
teresting stories of their advpntures in
the seven days battle in front of Rich
mond was told us. They have return
ed to their regiment at Alexandria on
their way with lien. Smith's division
to reinforce Gen. Pope. They look
.of the wear, liaving , lost
all their clothing but that on tile* in
the evacuation of the Peninsula.,We
hasp the honor to be color company of
our regiment. George A. Simpson has
been promoted to color sergeant:4lnd
J. F. Conrad to nospittil Stewart!.
The health of the boys is good, not
a case out of our company in the hos
pital yet, although many have had lit
tle brushes, produced by the system Of
pagsing through a new ordeal, and at
present these are few. A few mifitites
ago the commander of the fort ,Ifere,
gave us orders to strike tents and move.
This, however, I learn will not be exe
eatecl Until further orders are received,
which, doubtless, will be soon, as la
test accounts say that the Regiment,
?ill but our company, has been concen
trated at Fort Barnard, about a-mile
and a half from here.
August 28.--In haste I resume my
pen again. We are now quartered at
Fort Barnard with bright prospects of
meeting secession balls soon; every
man stands firm in the vindication of
true soldier sentiment, and I have no
fears of the Bible company relaxing,
when, by actions, they will have to tell
of what they are made.- Every man
has forty rotinds of cartridge in 'his
cartridge box, and each company has
in theircommissary one hundred rounds
for each man, and better equipped sol
diers than we are, could not be asked
for, therefore if at an early day we arc
summoned to meet the foe and arc
found inefficient, it will be because we
are yet in the incipiency of our soldier
Since our stay hero, we bad the
pleasure of meeting Lieut. Chas. Hil
debrand who was released from rebel
bondage on the 11th of this month.—
The Lent. looks well, bears the-ap
pearance of a brave soldier and expects
to return soon to the honorable calling
of defending freemen's rights.
There is a forcible impression here,
in, others with my own mind that the
work of reformation has begun in the
135th Regiment. At present, Captains
Hostetter's, Gregg's, and Simpson's,
with those companies formerly men
tioned, have adopted a regular order of
company worship, eight and morning,
in connection with prayer meetings
that are hold with profitable results, at
stated periods. The singing of hymns,
through the regiment, are more fre
quently- beard than that of trifling
songs. So do we move on the restless
tide of time, socking our Heavenly
Father's celestial abode, and asking
the people of God who know the value
of prayer and feel an interest in the
soldier, to lend an energetic faith in
our behalf at the throne of God's grace
while wo behold this unholy war as IL
is. If we are so situated I will let you
hear from us next week, bat it may be
I cannot, as my time is nearly all con
P. S.-7 o'clock, Friday noon.—We
are ordered to go in pursuit of a guer

Out of ~one. thousand-soldiers, one
hundred -and-% r are Si 61c ; this -, is the
constant proportion, as reported by the
Sanitary Commission. ; The autumn
always increases the number, - by rea
son of the hot days and cool nights,
causing diarrhceas and dysenteries, of
every shade and degree. One yard
and a half of stout-woulen flannel, four
teen inches broad, worn, from August
to November, tightly and ; constantly
around the abdomen,' iii such a way
that it, will be doable in the front, with
bits of tape strongly sewed on one
end, and about one yard from the other,-
according to the sine' of the person,
for convenience of trying, would do
more toward preventing 'bowel-com
plaints among our brayo and self deny
ing soldiers, than all known human
meariS 'besides: %ThiS tiimphi device
arrested the ottSet of:cholmin, in 'three
days, in one of the, largest divisions of
the Prussian army, when the terrible
scourge last ,visitedt fiarope:: iLeVevc
ry family who has a member in the
army, forward such ab article on the
instant of reading Ellis; if you can do
no better, send an old W01:11, petticoat,
for by reason of its softness and plia
bility, it is better than -any thing else.
Let every mother who reads this, and
who may have no son or other rela
tive- bravely battling for the perpetui
ty of our glorious Union, send, one ab
dominal bandage, to be given to some
worthy 'soldier Who has no mother, no
sister, do wife to exercise these kindly
cares for him. And let the generous
rich, of whom there are so many among
us—the Astor:7,, the Aspinwalls, the
llinturns, the .Stuart, Brothers, and
those like them—be asstircd that it is
impossible to spendmi equal amount
of money es etlleiently,,,M any other
way. 'One man - who'ha's been in the
army twelve mouths is worth now two
raw ecru i ; hence one dollar's worth
of good woolen flannel for one of them,
or even an old petticoat, by keeping
such a soldier-healthy-in - the field, will
be worth more thc 'fifty dollars
bounty paid for the two recruits, under
the present . exigencies of the 'ease.
Winter is coming ; let the sisters
and mothers Of the soldiers begin to
knit two or three pairs of thick, woolen
socks, to be forwarded to each son
end brother by the • first of Ootoboit
let the toes and heels bo double knit
ted, or sheathed with the blue cloth of
some worn-out coat or pantaloons,
cautioning the soldier to keep the toe ,
nails closely trimmed, so as to prevent
the cutting of the socks.
Begin at once, and put up in quart
tin cans, to be forwarded at internals,
(for if sent in large quantities at a
time, they will be Wasted or two lav
ishly used,) pickled cucumbers and
cabbage. Onions are represented by
physiologists to be among the most
wholesome and nutritious of all the
vegetable products, besides their im
mediately invigorating and enlivening's
effects. I,f a•gallon of onions•could be
sent to each soldier, once a month, in
addition to a quart of pickled cucum
bers or cabbage, scurvy, already begin
ning to manifest itself, would be un
known. And if it could be felt bow
grateful a quart tin can of preserved
berries, tomatoes, or.fruits, would be
to a soldier WhO does not see such
things, preserved or fresh, sometimes
for months together, their sisters, and
mothers, and cousins, and wives would
spare no littlopains to prepare a good
supply for months to come, and would
begin to send them on the instant.-
