We have not the time nor the incli
nation, to dun personally, a large num
ber of persons who have unsettled ac
counts upon our books of several years
standing. We shall, therefore, from
day to day, without respect to persons,
place into the hands of a Justice for

years standing. All those who wish
to save expense, will do well to give

McClellan and the President's Proc
A good soldier always obeys- the I
commands of hi.; superior, as a matter
of course. -Major: General McClellan
is too good a soldier ever to fail to do
this. Accordingly, he published to his
army, on the 29th of September, the
proclamation of the President relative
to the emancipation of the slaves of
the rebels, and the instructions to offi
cers of the army and navy on the sub
lect ; the receipt and publication of an
order from the Commander•-in-Chief
being a sufficient acknowledgment
notice that it is to be obeyed. But he
has since thought it proper to go fur
ther, awl has issued General Order,
No. in which lie again calls atten
tion to the proclamation, and points
out with singular clearness the duty
of the military authorities, as sub Ord
inate to the civil. Ile te11.3 his soldiers
that " the Chief' Executive, who is
charged with the administration of
the national affairs, is th,c proper and
only source through which the views
and ordc-s.of the Government c•sn be
nin k le : _ to the armie , A tit,: na
tion." Ire also takes occasion to tell
officers and men that discussions of the
public measures of the Government,
going beyond a " temperate and re
spectful expression of opinion," is like
ly to lead to insubordination, by.: sub
stituting the spirit of political faction
for that firm, steady and earnest sup
port of the Government., which is the
inherent duty of the American soldier."
The new order is altogether admi
rably worded, and it will have a good
effect. Had it gone into details and
recited the various points of the Pres
ident's proclamation, it would have
approached an error that it directs
should he avoided : that of discus
sing measures determined on by the
Government. It simply directs that
the orders of the President aro to he
executed by the army. There have
been signs of a pestilent spirit of in
even among high offi
cers, graduates of West Point, and a
disposition among some of them to
cavil at and criticise the acts of the
President. General McClellan hay . ing
formally condemned such conduct, it
is to bo expected that it will cease,
and the upstarts who have talked pub
licly, even before subordinates and
privates, in censure and abuse of the
acts of the Government, will hence
forth bold their peace. The policy of
the President with respect to the re
bellion, must be the policy of the ar
my; and those officers who cannot
undertake to carry out that policy,
without scolding at it, had better re
sign their commission.
The pretended " conservatives"
among the politicians have bean try
ing to create an impression that Geni.
McClellan was not going to regard the
President's Proclamation, and intima
ting that he ought not to regard it.—
General Order No. 163 comes in time
to put down this falsehood. 312Clellan
is with the President, and the people
are with both; not for political effect,
but to save the Union. McClellan is
not with Francis W. - Hughes, who de
nounces the Government as an "Abol
ition Government ;" nor with Charles
J. Biddle, who calls the war " a Black
I Republican job.' 110 simply obeys
orders, does his duty as a soldier, and
expects every- man in his army to do
likewise. lie keeps steadily before
hint the grand object of the war, the
suppression of rebellion, and lie will
enforce all measures, looking to that
object, determined on by the civil au
thority. The hearts of the people and
of the army, are with George B. Mc-
Clellan, and they will sustain him and
the President more cheerfully than
ever, now that it is formally annonneCO
to the world that, the Proclamation is
to be' respected and enforced by the
Our Army Correspondence .
CAMP or 110th Regt. P. V., ARLINCi-
TON Ilmoirrs, Oct. 1, 1862.
Mu. Emma :—Having but little to
engage my attention at the present
time, and knowing that a word from
the army is never stale to our friends
at home, I respectfully solicit the priv
ilege of holding a short parley with
your readers through the medium of
your paper. As any attempt, howev
er, to give detail -3, or even an outline
of the presemt organization, strength
or operations of any portion of our ar
my would be both absurd and danger
ous, I will not attempt to go beyond
the bounds of our own camp.
The majority of your readers, at
least those residing in Huntingdon
and vicinity, are perfectly familiar
with the first organization and charac
ter of our regiment, as well as the in
cidents connected with its subsequent
history. Having sprung into exist
ence in the "Soldier's Paradise," bet
ter known as Camp Crosman--where
the hospitality and kindnsss of the cit
izens of Huntingdon added so much to
our pleasure and comfort, it is not
surprising that memory should some
times lead us back to the scene of our
early experience in soldiering. Them
are but few men in the 110th who have
not some Ve,119011 to bestow a kindly
thought on those who bade us Cod
speed when we struck our tents pre
paratory to our first move. When 're
look back now, and remember how of
-ten wo have struck tents since we
have been part'and parcel of the army
of Virginia, a long vista of years
seems to intervene bet Ween the pres
ent and the days when we were " gay
and happy," clamoring vociferously
for the purpose of going into actual
service, and doing duty on the" tent
ed field." That clamoring has ceased.
Our present situation is as pleasant
and comfortable as we can expect un
der existing circumstances. Although
hard fighting, hard marching, and con
stant exposure have decimated our
ranks considerably, a short season of
rest and judicial medical treatment
will do much to rejuvenate the men,
and inspire them \vitt renewed ener
gy. Fortunately we are in a situa
tion to enjoy both these advantages.—
Our Regimental Surgeon, ])r. D. S.
(lays, has added materially to the
strength of the rank and file of the re
giment by timely and attentive treat
ment of physical derangements which,
in too many cases, arc allowed to
prostrate the men befbre their regi
mental surgeon can be induced to pre
scribe fbr them, or take the trouble to
ascertain the nature of the disease,—
Happily for us, we hare, no complaints
to make against the guardian of our
health. The conduct of Dr. Hays on
the Winchester battle-field during the
night of the 23d of March last, produ
ced a feeling of confidence in his ability
and ;:seal, that will not abate while
the interest he now manifests in his
duties continues. His removal from
the regiment last sinnmer was an out
rage that nothing but his restoration
could atone for.
As is usual in camp, rumors increase
and multiply to such an extent that
it is unsafe to believe anything. At
present, the prominent subject of con
versation with us is, the supposed ar
rival of rebel peace commissioners in
Washington, and the anticipated spee
dy arrival of the man with the " green
backs" in our camp. As report says
that we are soon to take the field
again, the paymaster is not likely to
come into camp unobserved.
Nothing of interest having tran
spired among us lately, and the future
being entirely too foggy to penetrate,
f will close for the present, trusting to
circumstances for something more in
teresting to write about next time.
The Late Horrible Tragedy at Har
[From the Harrisburg Telograpli, Oct. 6.1
Our city was alarmed late on Friday
evening by the announcement that a
girl between fivo and six years of age,
named Mary Elizabeth, daughter of
Mr. Emmanuel German, was missing
and had been seen in company with a
man wearing a soldier cap, and dressed
like a. discharged soldier. The child
was seen with this man at about five
o'clock, on Friday evening, going up
Second St., thence up Locust to Third,
and up Third across the Capitol ground.
Acre all trace was lost of them and
many rumors were circulated regard
ing the absence of the child. Every
effort was made by the parents and
persons in this city on Saturday, to
learn the whereabouts of little Mary,
who was well known as a sprightly
and intelligent child for her age, but it
seemed that all human efforts were
powerless to relieve the anxiety and
grief of the parents and friends. Yes
terday afternoon, however, two color
ed boys, who were crossing General
Forster's meadow, directly in front of
the cemetery, discovered right at the
edge, in a regular swamp, the remains
of little Mary. These colored boys
went at once to give the alarm, and
word was immediately sent to Mr. Ger
man, informing him of the discovery,
and requesting that he should proceed
to the spot, for the purpose of identi
fying the remains.
111 r. G erman arrived immediately of
' ter his notification, and our pen fails
us to describe the scene. There was
his poor innocent little girl, the hope
and happiness of its parents, murdered
in the most brutal manner, and that
without the least apparent motive for
the fiendish deed. A coroner's jury
I was at once empanelled by Alderman
J line. Dr. Lloherts was present, who
upon examination, discovered that the
child had been shot directly through
the throat, the ball entering on the
; right side of the neck, passing directly
through the jugular vein and carrying
away the left portion of the neck al
most completely with it.
The child was lying on its thee, with
bruise, about the size of a Spanish
dollar directly on its threhead, which
might have been received in the fall,
and the ri . gh Ann showed the imprints
of a hand, as if it had been held firmly
with one hand whilst with the other
the iittal shot was given, when the
child was standing directly before the
brute who committed the murder.—
The clothing of the child was some
what torn and disarranged. No mo
tive whatever for the commitment of
this most brutal and fiendish murder,
can be assigned. A child so young and
amiable, the parents living in a respect
able manner, without an enemy in the
city, are thus bereft of a beloved daugh
The Coroner's jury examined several
witnesses, but without concluding the
examination, adjourned till this morn
ing at ten o'c•lock.
We would particularly request all
persons who can give the least infor
mation as regards this yet mysterious
murder, to commit everything at once
to Mayor Kepner. Many persons saw
the man with the child and say that
they would know him again if they
saw hint. Let all these persons appear
and give a full and candid description
of all they know, and the perpetrator
will certainly be discovered.
Major Tan.ert, an in lA:Mg-ene:l;rd ef
ficient detective officer from Philadel
phia, and officer Fleck, of this city,
have the matter of ferreting out the
perpetrator in charge, and they have
already discovered a chain of evidence,
which we hope and pray- will lead to
the speedy apprehension of this brute.
We hope also that the Mayor and City
Councils, together with the Governor
of the State, will offer largo rewards
for the apprehension of the murderer.
Let no labor or means be spared to
vindicate the laws, and bring the per
petrator to speedy punishment.
About /1 o'clock yesterday evening,
a suspicious looking man, with blood
on his coat, was arrested somewhere in
Third street; on the charge of being
the murderer. ire was at once taken
to Ald. Kline's office. and the witnesses
who saw' the In:in late on Friday eve
ning were sent for, but they all agreed
that be was not the man and 110»ce lie
was honorably diseharßed.
The perp..!tmiion of this; brutal mur
der has ere,fted a great oKeitornent in
this city. I , :\ ,tens ie. the
81;•00- erow,kburin' yesterdayafternoon, discus , ,ing the
case, nu,l if the pz.rpetentor could have
been discovered 'he would most (Tr
taiidy have been visited with summary
vengeance. Thc:re elm be no case of
more deliberate and brutal murder on
record, and it is so mystified, Whilst no
apparent motive can he shown for the
commission of the deed, that many
Opi 111011 S NNW,: eXpresscd. must,
however, candidly admit, that it ap
pears to be the work of sonio insane
mann, as no apparent efforts had been
made to conceal even the body. If it
had been thrown ten feet further in
the swamp, iL would not have been
discovered in time to recognize it.--
The following is the description of the
man seen with the girl late in the af
About 25 years of age, 5 fee!, 8 in
ches high, slim bnilt, thin face, dark
hair, dark complexion, rather
smooth thee, wore a soldier cap very
much faded, blue blouse and old dirty
grey pants torn about the bottom of
the logs.
I'. B.—Sipco the above was written,
several physicians have re-examined
the child, which is already much de
composed, and they all- seem to agree
that a knife had also boon used at the
child's throat, whilst it may have boon
shot. The work was evidently finished
with a knife, and that death must
have been instantaneous.
Bercral of our most eminent physi
cians examined the body of the littlo
girl who was so brutally murdered on
Friday night, and they came to the
unanimous conclusion that a rape had
been attempted on the innocent little
—The Atlantic ocean includes an area
of 25,000,000 square miles. Suppose
an inch of rain to fall upon only one
fifth of this vast expanse, it would
weigh 360,000,000 tons; and the salt
which, when the water was taken up
as a vapor, was left behind to disturb
the equilibrium, weighed 16,000,000
more tons, or nearly twice as much as
all the ships in the world could carry
at a cargo each. lt 'might , -"fall in a

ert so much force—which is inconceiv
ably great—in disturbing the equilib
rium of the ocean. If all the water
discharged by the Mississippi river du
ring the year, were taken up in ono
mighty purpose, and cast into the
ocean at an effort, it would not make
a greater disturbance in the equilibri
um of the sea than the fidl of rain sup
posed. And yet, so gentle aro the
operations of nature, that movements
so vast are unperceived.
--Wcdnetslay afternoon, Oct. 1, says
the Troy Times, the wife of Thomas

General Wadsworth's Acceptance of the
Nomination fox Governor
Gen. Jas. S Wadsworth, lately nom
inated by the Union party of New
York as their candidate for Governor,
has accepted the nomination.. In his
letter to the President of the Conven
tion that nominated him, ho defines
had position as follows:
I think I cannot ho mistaken in as
suming that the eleotion will turn up
on the necessity of sustaining our Na
tional Government in its efforts to up•
hold itself and maintain its territorial
integrity, and especially upon the pro
clamation of the President, issued to
that end, and referred to in the fourth
resolution of
.the Convention. I en
tirely approve of that proclamation,
and commend it to the support of the
electors ofNew York, for the following
1. it is an effectual aid to the speedy
and complete suppression of the rebel
lion. Six or eight millions of whites,
having had time to organize their gov
ernment and arm their troops, fed and
supported by the labor of four millions
of slaves, present the most krmidable
rebellion recorded in history. Strike
from this rebellion the support which
it derives from the unrequited toil of
these slaves, and its foundation will be
2. It is the most humane method of
putting down the rebellion, the history
of which has clearly proved that the
fears of slave insurrections and massa
cres are entirely unfounded. While
the slaves earnestly desire freedom,
they have shown no disposition to in
jure their masters. They will cease
to work for them without wages, but
they will form, throughout the South
ern States, the most, peaceful and docile
peasantry on the thee of the earth.—
The slaveowners,CO compelled to
labor for their own support, the war
must cease, and its appalling carnage
come to an end.
3. The emancipation once effected,
the Northern States would be forever
relieved, as it is right that they should
be, from the fears of a great influx of
African laborers, disturbing the rela
tions of those Northern industrial clas
ses who ha re ho freely given
. their lives
to the mipport of the Government. 4--.
This done, and the whole African pop
ulation will drift ,to the_South, whore

late raid into Maryland by the rebel
Generals, was caused in the first placci
by the dun necessity for the obtain
ment of supplies for the subsistence of
their lioni•hing army, during the ap
proaching winter; and secondly to
wreak their ye:lgo:ince upon the loyal
citizens of Pennsylvania—to whose at
tention we direct the following out
spoken threats of the organ of the rob
el government in Dixio—issued on the
very clay upon which the groat battle
of Antietam was being fought:
pi o. the Ihehte Jed Dis;Ltteb, Sept. 17.1
The road to Pennsylvania lirls invi
tingly open. There are no regular sol
dier:3 on the route, and it would be a
task of little difficulty to disperse the
rabble of militia that might he bronght
to oppose them.
The country is enormously rich. It
abounds in fat cattle, cereals, horses
and mules. Oar troops would live on
the very fat of the land. They would
Lind an opportunity, moreover, to teach
the Dutch fltrmers and graziers, who
have been clamorous for this war,
what invasion really is. If once com
pelled to take his own physic, which is
a great deal more than he ever bar
gained for, Mynhoer will cry aloud for
peace in a very short time. For our
own part we trust the first proclama
tion of Pope, and the manner in which
his army carried it out, will not.he for
gotten. We hope the troops will turn
the whole country into a desert, as the
Yankees did the Piedmont country of
Let not a blade of grass, or a stalk
of corn, or a barrel of flower, or a bush
el of meal. or a sack of salt, or a horse,
or a cow, or a hog, or n sheep be left
wherever they move along. Let ven
geance be taken for all that has been
done, until rotributim itself shall
stand aghast. This is the country of
the smooth spoken, would-be gentle
man, McClellan. He has caused a loss
to us, in Virginia, of at least thirty
thousand negrocs, the most valuable
property that a Virginian can own.—
They have no negroes in Pennsylva
nia. :Retaliation must therefore fall
upon something also, and let it fall up
on everything that constitutes proper
ty. A Dutch farmer has no negroes;
but ho has horses that can be seized,
grain that can be confiscated, cattle
that can bo killed, and houses that can
qc burnt. Ho can bo taken prisoner
and sent to Libby's warehouse, as our
friends in Pauquier, and London, and
Culpepper, and the Peninsula have
been seht to Lincoln's dungeons in
the North. Let retaliation - be com
plete, that the Yankees may learn
that we can play at the ghnto they
have themselves commenced.
By advancing into Pennsylvania
with rapidity, our army can easily get
possession of the Pennsylvania Central
Railroad, and break it down so thor
oughly that it cannot be repaired in 6
months. They have already posses
sion of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road and the York Railroad. By
breaking down these and the railroad
from Philadelphia to Baltimore; they
will completely isolate both Washing
ton and Baltimore. No reinforce
ments can reach them from either
North and West, except by the Poto
mac and the bay.

Iron-Clad Vessels Building at New-
An immense iron-clad fleet is now
in the course of construction in. this
port, and tho most intense activity is
being displayed to complete some -of
these vessels at an early date. At the
Continental Works of T. F. Itowlfind,
Green Point, five turret ships are, in
progress, and one of these has been
launched, and will soon be - finished.—
They are called the Passaic, Montauk
Katshill, Onondaga , and Puritan.. The
latter will be 320 eet in length, with
a beam of 50 feet. At Colwell & Co.,
Jersey City, the turret ship Wee/taw/an
is being rapidly pushed forward; and
at the .Dolamator Iron Works, the
Dictator-0, double turret Ericsson 350
feet in length, with a beaus exceedin g
beingso feet—is alto urged forward
with great energy, there being 1,000
mon employed upon her.
Besides these seven armor - turret
vessels, ranging from 200 to 350 feet
in . length ; now in different stages of
proress, W. 11. Webb has also com
menced the largest iron-clad war ves
sel yet designed. Her length will be
360 feet, beam' 7S feet. She will be
7,000 tons, and have engines of 5,000
horse power. In addition to being
furnished with two turrets, sho will
have a common gun dock, and her ac
commodations will be as ample for her
crew, as those of a wooden frigate.—
ller plates are to be 41 inches thick,
and she will be of light draft, in propor
tion to her size, owing to her great
breadth of heath. She will bo afloat
by November 1. A small iron-clad is
also being built at Jersey City, for the
defence of San Francisco harbor, as a
floating battery. Sho is being built
in sections, which will bo put together
when she reaches her destination.
Those vessels are all of*the revol
ving turret class, designed, we under
stand, by Captain Ericsson. The Ro
anoke, one of our wooden steam frigates,
is now at the Novelty Works, having
the remainder of beg plates put on.—
She is of the _La Glove class, and will
be a very efficient vessel, we believe.
At the Dry Dock Works, 111 r. S. W.
Whitney's novel armor gunboat, the
Moodna, is .in a forward state. She
will have two stationary gun turrets,
and be propelled by two screws,,driven
by two pairs of powerful engines.
We have thus briefly enumerated no
less than eleven armor vessels now
being built at this port for our navy.
The smallest of these will be a formid
able war ship to encounter, but the
three largest will be perfect leviathans,
especially as they are to be armed
with 15-inch Dahlgren guns—the lar
gest in the world. They will be capa
ble of acting as rams also, but in this
respect their efficiency will depend
chiefly on their speed.

Reports from Richmond,
WAsirmyroN, Oct. 7.—An English
man who loft Richmond a week ago,
and arrived here last night, brings
formation, of which some is new and
all is regarded as trustworthy. Ile
has been in prison since the Ist ofJu
ly, when ho was arrested as ho was
attempting to come North. After fre
quent application through counsel he
finally secured un unconditional re
lease, and was about a week at large
in Richmond before coming North.—
During his imprisonment ho was at
first confined with Dr. Bucker, who is
charged with having acted as a guide
and spy for the Union threes in West
ern Virginia. The rebels afterward
pat Dr. Rucker into a cell three and a
half feet high by 5 feet long, where he
still is. Ile is miserably fed on what
will just support life. •That ho may
not kill himself, a guard is kept con
stantly watching him.
Our Thighs:lin:an was on board the
Merrimac, No. 2, on Friday. Ho says
she will not be ready for service forsix
weeks. One of her engines had too
small a screw, which had to be re:
placed. She is plated with railroad
iron six inches thick. She is to carry
eight gunS, for which sho has eight
portholes, and two pivot guns, at stem
and stern, for eaelt of which sho has
three portholes. She is sharp at both
ends, and has a sharp ram at her bows.
This refugee says that there aiYe
very few soldiers at Richmond, almost
all hitherto there having boon sent
forward to General Leo. - Even some
who were aWaiting trial for forging
muster rolls, and for other degrading
offences, and others who were Impris
oned for repeated desertions, had been
hurried to swell the ranks of the rebel
Potomac army.
This Englishman thinks that a Nor
thern General - who should capture
Richmond would be welcomed by near
ly two-thirds of the citizens. Ho says
it is the largo negro owners and negro
dealers who are heartily for the rebel
lion. A half moon of fortifications sur
round Richmond at the distance on the
average, of half a mile Isom the city.
These works aro not regularly mount
ed with guns; a few only, and those of
inferimi Calibre, are in position at long
intervals. Citizens and negroes are,
howevey, now laboring 'with great en
ergy in erecting a second line of works
five miles out from the city.
Whoever, in Virginia, uses the word
" Rebel " in speaking of an inhabitant
of the Confederato States, suffers six
months' imprisonment at hard labor.—
An English-born citizen was so pun
ished a few months ago. Mr. Crldlam,
the British Consul in Canada, and his
substitute, the Acting COnsul, is in
sympathy with the South, haying been
interested in heavy contraCts for the
importation of suppliO contraband ot
war. Ho is much complained of by
British subjects for not protecting their
rights when they conflict with rebel
, interests.—Trib

The Rebel Army in Virginia,
deserter from the rebel army, brought
in last evening, makes some highly
interesting statements, which aro im
portant if true. Ho belonged to the
Second Virginia cavalry, of Gen. Mum
ford's brigade and Gen. Stuart's divi
sion. The following are his statements.
Mamford's brigade, of from ninei
hundred to ten hundred cavalry,,
between Warrenton and the Springs.
The force at Gulpop,er pont .house,
now commanded by'General -4Oseph
Johnston, consists of three' • divi= -
sions, one of them comtnanded by Gen.
Gustavits IV. Smith, Another by Gen.
Horton; the name f the other division
commander he did , not knoW. He
heard General Mumford say that John
se.? had been ordered to take command
of the Department of the West; Gen,
Bragg having been relieved. Ther4
was much complaint against General
Bragg. He saw a young man from
Richmond, who told him that the reb
els had a large fordo at Gordonsville.
He was with the rebels in Maryland
and beard officers say that their loss,
at the battle of Antietam was sixteen
thousand killed and wounded and four
thousand prisoners. The rebels say
they obtained eight hundred cavalry
and two thousand infantry recruits in,
Maryland, about six hundred of iihma
were from Pennsylvania.
The force under Lee at Winchestex,
ho says, numbers one hundred {rid
eighty thonsand mon, and is being
reinforced. This is considered here a t
large over estimate. The old regimentet
are being filled up with eonseripti.
He was in the battles at Bull Ran,
and says that the rebels universalky
admit that they were whipped Ort
day by General Sigel.
A prisoner from the Voyty, niath
Virginia, commanded by Oolonol (for,
merly Hon.) Wm. Smith, was brought
in yesterday. He wiiS boine On Mick
