WOOD WANTED.-A: good load of

THE citizens of this place were deep
ly sorrow-stricken on Saturday last,
by the intelligence that several mem
bers of the four companies in the 125th
Regt. were killed and wounded at the
battle of South Mountain, Md., Sept.
15. Among the rest of the killed was
Ensign GEORGE A. StmrsoN, who re
ceived the fatal shot while gallantly
bearing the colors in the contest.
He was quite a young man, scarcely
over 262, years of age, was a member of
the M. E. Church of this place, and
followed the occupation of a farmer,
but, during his leisure hours was occu
pied at the printing business in the
Jouraal office. He enlisted in the
three months' service under Captain
Miller, and returning home with the
company, again marched forth in de
fence of his country's rights under
Captain Wallace in the nine months'
call, and here be received his death

lasting realms of glory. Ile was buried
at Hagerstown, Md., with all the hon

But while we mourn his loss, we
should not forget the others who have
suffered the same /lite. Their names
will be inscribed on the hearts of the
Citizens as the names of patriots should,
and they will ever be remembered for
thus nobly sacrificing their lives upon
the altar of their country. Peace to

Sergeant J Rudolph Simpson have re
turned home from the battle-field at
South Mountain. They were all
wounded, and permitted to return
home to receive the care and attention
from a mother's or a 6ister's hand.—
We wish them a speedy recovery, and
hope they, together with others who
have returned, may again receive
strength to aid their co-patriots in the
field in crushing this unholy rebellion.
Our friend Sergeant T L Flood accom
panied the wounded. He was fortu
nate enough to fight the battle with

apparently under twelve year: , of age,

cigar and happened to be smoking it
when the conductor came round for
tickets. As the one held by the boy
was a half price ticket, the conductor
remarked that 1 1 .1 directors consider

the boy to pay- full price. The elder

Sept. 17, 1862.
DEAR GLOM: :—To-night while the
boys are assembled in the different lit
tle tents taking their evening's chat,
I occupy a tent alone to let you know
whereabouts the 110th is stationed.—
You have already,- heard of our late
hard marches through Virginia, and
not only the hard marches, but the
many fights in which this regiment
participated, and acted their part no
bly. As we have not as yet seen any
account in the Globe of the fights from
the 110th, we will give a few items.—
In the fight of the Dull of August this
Regiment had no part except a picket
fight after dark. At Thoroughihre
Gap, on the 280, this Regiment fon,ght
about two hours under a galling flue.
Next, we were marched almost on
double quick to I,ull Run, marching
night and day, and on the 30th took
an active part in the fight, entering
the field soon after the break of day,
and being placed on the left of the en
emy. We held our position and still
moved forward slowly all day, until
late in the evening, when Longstreet
reinforced the Old Rebel Jackson, and
made a charge all along the line. We
were compelled to retreat a short dis
tance until we met reinforcements,—
During this retreat the Robs gave us
cold lead, killing and wounding a
great many, and took quite a number
of prisoners. Your writer had a very
narrow escape, but made his way out,
being minus of haversack, gum blan
ket, shelter tent and hat. This day's
fighting was commenced by Generals
Pope and McDowell; Aft:Dowell coin

We next came to Alexandria, and
are placed in a fort. I cannot say
how long we will stay here :I have no

Frightfel Calamity at the Alleghany
P/TTSITURG, gept.l7.--A frightful ex
plosion occurred at the U. S. Arsenal
this afternoon, at two o'clock, in a
large frame building known as the la
boratory. About one hundred and sev
en ty-si x boys and girls were employed
in the building at the time of the dis
aster, seventy-five or eighty of whom
The explosion was followed by an
other, until the entire building was
destroyed. Those who could not es
cape in time were burned up. The
scene was most appalling. Dead bod
ies were lying in heaps, as they had
and in some places where the
heat was intense the whitened bones
could be seen through the smoke and
flames. In other places large masses
of blackened. flesh were visible.
Tip to the present time sixty three
bodies bare been taken from the ruing.
The cause of the explosion is not
lcuown, but-it is ndruinc(l by all to
linve been accidental.
nu: following is a notice, which we
find in one of the Itarrisharg papers,
of the death of Captain Brooks, son of
'Squire.Brooks of Clotthnont, this coun-
DEATII Or• CAPT. G Emu: r: A. BROOKS.
—We announce with deep regret the
death of this gallant officer, who offer
ed up his life on the altar of his coun
try's liberty at the great battle of
South Mountain. Captain Brooks was
a member of the profession, having
learned his trade in the office of the
Columbia Spy, and as such, universally
known and liked. fie joined the Lo
chiel Greys and served durin ‘ , _ , the
three months. On his return to Ha r
risburg. he raised a company of volun
teers for three years. This company
was called the Verbeke Rifles, in hon
or of William K. Verbeke, of our city,
who assisted Captain Brooks in re
cruiting his company. The Verbeke
Rifles were attached to the 46th regi
ment Pennsylvania Voluntee•s,, Jos.
F. Knipe, Colonel, commanding the
regiment. Captain Brooks performed
a gallant part in the battles of Han
cock, Bath, Winchester and the fitmous
retreat of Major General Banks. Ile
participated in the fights at Front
Royal; Port Republic and Cedar Moun
tain, in the last of which he was woun
ded in the lbot, and came here, where
he resides, to receive medical treat
ment. Before his wound had com
pletely healed, his ardent desire to be
with his command and his patriotic
ambition to perform his entire duty,
impelled him to again take the field.
lie left his home ten days ago, and we
shall never forget the last words of

in the train which carried him to the
spot where ti rebel ballet laid him in
the dust. Captain Brooks was a
young man ; he possessed a generous
disposition; was loved by his friends,
and admired by ail who knew him.—
He leaves a wife and one child to
mourn his loss, and many friends who
will deplore his sad fate. His milita,
ry career commenced as a private, in
which position he secured the confi
dence of his olljce•s and the good will
of his fellows in the ranks ; and when
he came home to raise his company,
many who had served with him as
equals, joined his command, thus prov
ing the faith they had in his integrity
as a man, and their confidence in his
ability as an officer. Captain Geo. 4.

mourn his loss, and we sympathize
with his bereaved family in their great
affliction, yet we have the, consoling
idea still before us, lie died as all good

Detai4 of the Alleghany Arsenal
A RECAPITULATION OP HORRORS
The Telegraph Thursday morning
barely announced the fact of a terri
ble explosion which took place in the
Alleghany Arsenal on Wednesday.—
By the Pittsburg Dispatch of yester
day we have full particulars of the hor
rible occurrence, from which we con
dense the following account;
After the explosion, the 'building
took fire, 4nd those of the girls con
fined by the fragments Item burned
to death. A number were doubtless
killed by the explosion, and theil• 1./mi
les consumed. Where the heat was
the greatest nothing remained of the
bodies but the whitened bones.
Thousands of people collected on
the grounds, and all were horror
stricken at the scene. The charred
remains of the victims were lying
about in several directions. A num
ber were dying of' their injuries and re
moved by friends. We noticed two
bodies which had been blown from the
building, both so horribly mutilated,
as indeed were all that we saw, with
but ono exception, as to render identi
fication impossible. Wo saw the bod
io.3 of two young women who evident
ly had been burned alive in each oth
ers arms. In one place we counted
forty-seven bodies, in another ten, and
turn where you would, blackened
trunks of bodies—piles of roasted flesh
met your gaze. here and there lay
the fragment of a skull, or• some other
part of a body.
Two girls were conversing near
where a body lay. One of them had
escaped uninjured—the other was in
search of a sister, and in describing
her, said she wore a red dress. A gen
tleman standing near, pointing to a
fragment of a dress hanging upon a
tree, said : " Was it like that ?" The
girl looked up, saw the fragment, and
a laud scream from her told us that
she identified it as a part of the dress
worn by her sister.
We came to•a spot where two girls
were dying. Both were terribly burn
ed. One asked if she was really going
to die, and desired a priest to be sent
for. She appeared less injured than
her fellow-sufferer, and spoke in a
loud and clear voice; but death soon
came. Her companion was removed
from the ground, still alive, but be
Anxious relatives flitted hurriedly
across the grounds, gazing upon the
erived remains, in the hope of discov
ering some mark of identification.—
Many of the bodies were encircled
with steel bands of hooped skirts.
The building or laboratory, was one
story high, divided into halls and
rooms, with an open space in the cen
tre, like a court. Accounts as to the
cause, as well as the particular point at
which the first explosion took place,
differ materially, and the filets cannot
be definitely ascertained, other than
by a proper investigation by a coron
er. Shortly before the first explos
ion, three barrels of gunpowder had
been brought from the magazine and
placed on a porch at the laboratory.--
The driver of the wagon in which the
powder was hauled, was knocked down
twice by the explosion, but not seri
ously hurt. His 'name is Trick, and
resides at Lawrenceville.
Adjacent to the laboratory was a
small building used as an engine room,
for heating purposes during the win
ter, and attached to this building were
two rooms in which cartridges were
filled, and in which were some two
hundred pounds of powder. The
flames communicating to these rooms
caused the last explosion.
It was pay-day, and Mr. Bosworth,
the paymaster, had paid some fifty of
the girls before the occurrence. After
the first etiplosion, a number of the
girls who had rushed out of their
rooms, went back to see after the oth
ers, and thus fell victims.
The firemen were promptly on the
ground, and rendered valuable assist
ance in quenching the fire. For a
time it was unsafe to go near the
burning building, owing to the contin
uous bursting of cartridges and shells.
The exact number of lives lost could
not certainly be ascertained last even
ing. It is possible that the bodies of
some Nyore entirely consumed. The
number, however•, will not fitll short, of
A scene of terrible excitement oc
curred at Store House No. 1, situated
near Butler street, in which upwards
of three hundred girls were employed
in preparing the paper cylinders for
musket cartridges. Although in no
danger whatever, the girls rushed
down the 411tirs to the front entrance,
which was already blocked up with a
crowd of men and women, in lyllich
were parents seeking after their
daughters. There was no ingress or
egress, and the pressure was frightful.
Women were trodden under foot, some
injured severely, and the scene was ab
solutely alarming. Ladders were
placed to the upper windows from
the outside, by which means a number
of the girls got out of the building.—
It was a considerable time before the
outside crowd could be forced back.—
During the excitement a number of the
girls leaped out of the second story
windows, and in this way were severe

Campaigning in Arizona,
The following extract from a letter
received at the War Department, and
dated at 3.lesilla, Arizona, August 15,
1802, shows With how little baggage
an army may be moved. It must be
remembered that those California
troops have marched through a desert
country, where no provisions or for
age could be obtained. Therefore, ev-
erything for horse and man was car
ried with them, and yet, with a train
less than that of a regiment not march
ing fifty miles from Washington, they
have averaged sixteen miles a day for
nearly sixty days.
"The Ist infantry and cavalry, Cali
fornia Volunteers, have successfully
marched one thousand miles over the
route by the Colorada desert, the Gila
river, Tucson, and the Mimbres rivers,
from the Pacific to the Rio Grande.—
This they have done with but the tri
lling loss of ten men in rebel and Indi
an skirmishes, with abundant supplies,
a serviceable train, and reached the
western borders of Texas in condition
for an immediate contest with the en
"Officers and men have shared the
hardships of the march alike, without
tents, and without baggage, one wag
on sufficing to transport ten days' ra
tions and the property of each compa
ny. For full one-half the distance
over the burning deserts, in midsum
mer, with a very scanty supply of wa
ter, the men have tmeamplainingly
carried their knapsacks, and averaged
throughout over seventeen miles dai
ly. They have been only too well sat
isfied to know that every step carried
them nearer to the heart of the rebel
