Huntingdon, March 10, 1803.
A number of citizens met in the
Court House on Thursday evening last
for the purpose of making arrange
ments for a permanent organization
of a Union League. The meeting was
orgimized by the appointment of
Saml. T: Brown, Esq., Chairman, Pr.
Jos. E. Wilson and Patrick Gcttvs of
West, Levi We-Abrook, Smithfield,
Andrew Andel son, Porter, Vice Presi
dents; Theo. 11. Cromer and Win. Af
rica, Secretaries.
The Chairman, in a neat and brief
speech, stated the object of the meet
John G. Miles, Esq., stated that he
had delayed a trip to Pittsburg in or
der to attend this meeting. He con
tended that it is improper to say that
this Government is prosecuting a war
—that it is &fending itself against a
most unreasonable and outrageous
war. That this war was inaugurated
by the South before the present Ad
ministration came into power. This
war is a defeneepade against the as
saulting power. Mr. M. then gave a
succinct and truthful account of the or
igin of the war. He could understand
the motives and actions of Southern
men who want to °vellum this Gov
ernment, but he could not understand
or appreciate the motives and the con
duct of Northern men who encourage,
aid and abet this outrageous war.
On motion, the following gentlemen
were appointed a committee to draft a
declaration of the principles, and rules.
etc., for the government of a elub to
be called the Union League of Hunt

Lewis, Dr. Jno. MeCalloch, Rev. S. 11.

On motion, Grans Miller, Wm. Af
rica, and,J. G. Miles were appointed a
committee to procure speakers fur any
future meetings when deemed necessa
- The meeting was further addressed
by J. Sewell Stewart, Esq., who gave
Lis impressions of the present move
ment. Ile looked upon it as a mission
ary- work, to counteract the movemeni:
of rebel sympathizers. Ile alluded to
the small faction in Congress whn op
posed every measure and effort of the
Administration to put down the rebel
lion; as an lnsignilieant hand who are
opposed to popular rights. Slavery is
the cure and heart of the 'rebellion,
commenced and carried on by the
South in order to break up this Govern
ment, so that at some future time it
could be re-constructed with slavery
as its chief corner-stone—so that the
institution .which is now making so
much trouble may be spread all over
the country.
Wm. P. Orbisoa, Esq., was also cal
led upon to address the.meeting. He
expressed fears that the rebel sympa
thizers will, in their madness and
blindness, produce such a state of feel
ing in the North as will result in as
much bloodshed and destruction of
property here as in the South. He re
ferred to the affected superiority of the
Southern over Northern men. He al
so spoke of the insolence of Great Brit
ain as lately Manifested by her naval
offleers near Fortress Monroe.

—Our young friend Wni. McClure
Davis, son of Henry Davis of West
township, and member of Co. IL 125th
Regiment, gave us a call on Monday.
He was on his way back to his com
pany after having been on a short vis
it to his friends. Young Davis talks
as a soldier should talk—ready to
punish the enemy in the rear as we])
as the enemy in front. If all our sol
diers were as loyal as young Davis,
the rebel sympathisers of the North
would have but little influence with
our army.
Lieut. Win. B. Ziegler, of Co. C,
125th negt., returned home on Satur
day evening. For five weeks the Lt.
had been in the hospital, suffering
with the rheumatism, and having be
come convinced that he could not be-of
any good service in the field any lon
ger, he. tendered his resignation and it
was accepted and he was honorably
discharged. We welcome Lt. Ziegler

will receive no aid and comfort from
liim as a civilian.
Capt. George h McCabe gave us a
call yesterday. ITe looks remarkably
well. lie has resigned his old com
mend for the purpose of taking com
mand of a cavalry regiment which is
already partly raised. The Captain
has the right kind of documents from
General Geary, and from many other
officers, which is sufficient evidence
that he has been u soldier of the right

—On Monday some thirty colored
men, roc - Tufts for the 57th 'Massachu

here on the Mail Train. They were
enlisted in Hollidaysburg and Altoona.
We would like to see something done
here too. There are many lounging
around town with nothing to do, and
it would be much better for them if
they would join such an organization,
and be drawing good pay, clothing and
rations, than to be loafing about the
corners. If they have any spunk they
will not allow other towns to get ahead
of Huntingdon.
Lieut. Oliver llorlon of the 138th
Penna. Volunteers, passed through
here on Monday morning on his way
to Bedford county. lie had with him
four men of the 138th and three men
from the Ist Connecticut Cavalry.—
They are in pursuit of deserters. The
Lieutenant enlisted in this Regiment
as a private.
Many persons are speculating as
to the mode of punishing deserters,—
We heard from one of these men, that
a large number were sentenced by a
court martial to break stone on the
Rip Raps until the close of the war,
and have all pay stopped.
According to the Articles of War
the penalty for deserting before an
enemy is death. We do not say ihat
breaking stone on the Rip Raps is pe
culiarly pleasant, but it is preferable
to the latter.

C.m . P, Feb. 27, 1803
MAR GLODE:—Whon 1 last wrote
to you, Co. T, 1-10th P. V., was lying
near the federal capital, enjoying that
ease, which, however inglorious it may
be, has at least the advantage of real
soldiering in point of comfort. But
the order long looked for came at'last,
and on Saturday, Feb. 14, our Regt.
came together in the city preparatory
to our departure to more stirring
scenes. The, following day met both
requirements, now considered by the
most approved authorities, essential to
a military movement. It was Sunday
and the rain poured in torrents. We
marched to the boat, but were not
permitted to board it immediately, as
it was thonght, desirable to allow us
the full benefit of an unusually heavy
shower. After becoming comfortably
wet we boarded the Louisiana. The
delay in starting was incredibly short.
only a couple of hours, a fact which
displays to advantage, the superior
energy ofsomebody, au Individual who
now figures largely on all great occa
sions. Is there no earthly way of
avoiding these horrid delays? It cer
tainly would not be unprofitable for
officers to reflect that when soldiers
are unnecessarily kept standing in the
rain, the remarks that pass along the
column are not very decidedly compli
mentary to said officers. But to pro
seed :—Well, to proebed we of course
got up the steam, and were finally off',' I
for Dixie. After a pleasant trip and a
night's rest on the boat we landed nexti
day at Gray's Landing, on Potomac'
creek and marched a few miles into
the countso Our tents were left be
hind, and after selecting a place for
our camp, most of the men made shel
ter-tents of their rubber blankets and
all lay down to sleep under a pleasimt
sky. About 3in the morning it began
to rain and the rain soon changed to
snow which partially melted as it fell.
This process continued the whole of
Tuesday, and a sadder-looking lot of
patriots than the new Bucktails on
that day is rarely seen. Wood was
plentiful and all Who could procure tools
were engaged in constructing huts
partly by excavating and partly by
building. "We are making history,"
§aid one sanguine fellow, whose lofty
patriotism taught bins to esteem light
ly his privations. "If I had known
this," said another, of less heroic tem
perament, I should have died at
home." "I wish," growled another,
utterly disgusted, and whose defective
articulation gave an additional gusto
to the sentiment, "I wish to God they
would hurry and kill us all off." Lit
tle sleeping was done that night or the
On Wednesday a largo detachment
from our regiment was detailed for
picket duty. In a day or two we
happened on a short spell of clear
weather and were enabled to get our
huts into tolerably coint - ortable shape.
But clear weather is the exception
here and storms the rule. We are now
settled - in our camp. ordered to spend
all our spare time in drilling, and to
confine our exercises to what will be
of most use to us in the active cam
paign which the order said is soon to
begin. We are within some six miles
of Fredericksburg, which, with the
portant faot that we are now really in
Dixie, is all most of us know of our
present position. J. S. B.
125th Regimens, P. V.
VA.. February 27;1863
FRIEND LEWIS nee writing my
last letter to you, an event has trans
pired, which is something new in the
proceedings of the 125th. Uncle
Satintel had the generosity to send us
the paymaster, with any quantity of
greenbacks, to gladden the hearts of
our boys; and I can assure you it was
appreciated by them, for they were
sadly in need of the " root of cril."—
Green backs are a great institution, :tad
the sight of Uncle Abe's handsome
countenance on a " saw buck " will
make many an eye sparkle at home,
with pleasure, for the wives and little
ones of the 125th seem pretty near out
of heart at the tardiness of their com
ing. Since pay-day the machine seems
to run with increased velocity, and
things are being put through in dou
ble quick. We are still stuck in the
mud, with no prospect of getting out,
as it, is raining nearly every day. The
clerk of the weather, 1 presume, has a
leave of absence, and some of the boys
are keeping the books. Last night,
our regiment received orders to march
to intercept it party of Johnny's, who,
not having the fear of the Army of
the Potomac before their eyes, -under
took to give us a fire in the rear.—
About 1 o'clock, A. M., it started, un
der the command of Major J. J. Law
rence, who is boss at present, and af
ter wading a mile or so in the dark
through the mud, took up a position
in a defile, where they waited anx
iously for the appearance of the robs.
lint nary reb came to disturb them; so
after waiting as long as they thought
politeness would allow, returned to
camp in time for late breaklitst. The
boys were in fine spirits, and eager for
a row, as they were beginning to get
a little rusty lying around camp.—
The Major keeps things moving when
he is in command. lie does matters
up on the Screw Jack principle. and is
always' willing for a muss with any
and every one who disputes the valor
of the 125th.
I see by the latc county papers that
the mooted . and disputed question is
still being agitated, about who bore off
our colors at Antietam. It is easily
settled here in the regiment, and for
the satisfaction of your fair correspon
dent from Alexandria, I will make a
plain statement of the occurrence:—
After the lamented Simpson fell, the
colors were caught up by Eugene
I3obblitz, a youth ofseventeen, belong
ing to Captain Harry Gregg's Conip.
IT, who bore them until he fell severe
ly wounded, (he has since been dis
charged on account of the wound);
they were tiu-n taken and carried off
the field by ticrgt. Greenland, Compa
ny C, who dim-NI-a - As gave them to
Capt. Wallace. This is truth, 39 my
authority' is Captain Wallace; himself.
"Honor to whom honor is due," is the
motto of your correspondent, therefore
it should be given to Mr. Bobblitz,
without disparaging in the least Capt.
Wallace or Sergt. Greenland, who are
both brave and honorable men. The
man who in the thickest of the fight
caught up the colors from the hands of
the dead bearer, and bore them until
he fell himself, is the man in my esti
mation who should have the honor.
I suppose we will remain here, per
, haps, until our time is up. Quid num-.
The conscription act meets our hearty
lapproval, and if it would only weed
out those secession sympathizersabout
Huntingdon, it would be a perfect suc
cess. How those old fogies will bear
it, time will show. I should like to
have the monitorship of some of them.
They would have to come down to
hard tack and venerable oxen sudden
ly. Give that piratical craft that runs
in your town a shot occasionally be
tween wind and water. That will
make her follow her namesake; and
the Union portion of our county will
give three cheers and a tiger.
The health of the regiment is pretty
good considering the weather. ,lf
there is anything, as McUa'vber says,
" turns up," I will post you.
Yours, hi the Union,
The Thunder of Loyal Troops !
Soldiers dale speak if they dare not vote !

On motion, the committee, conc,ist
ing of the following named officers :1
Captains Jacob Detweiler, _N. G. Raid, '
V. C. S. Eckert. James Adair,-andSur
gef») D. F.,APKinney, previously op- I
pointed to draw up resolutions expres
sive of the feeling and sentiment of I
the regiment in regard to the present
condition of the country, reported the
following :
Wutar..\::, The nation is at present
struggling for rights and privilegtes
dear to every Ameriean citizen, calling
Ibr the combined aid of tl i c i , e pure au d
pairi9be, to insure its preservationand
final triumph; Ate/ if hert'a, We have
heard with feelin!;c of deep and un
feigned sorrow and regret of violent,
treasonable sympathy. Ny hieli has for
some time been exhibiting itself in our
State and country, and which, as was
to be feared, has at length culminated
in the unjust and shameful arrest and
imprisonment of two of our brightly
level fellow-citi,:ens; therefore.
Resolred, That inasmuch as we have
pledged our cheerful and hearty co
operation' both in sc.intiments and by
acts, the the preservation, and as we
hopefully anticipate, the ultimate res :
' cue of oar Government from the den
e'ers that surround its in this crisis of
the Republic's threatened fortunes;
therelbre, further
Resolved, That we earnestly solicit,
and at the same time respectfully de
' mend, an honest and encouraging in
terest from those who are unwilling to
' take an active part in the great drama
now being enacted for our national ex
istence, that they should of right and
are in duty bound to encourage and
support the citizen soldiers in the ten
' ted field; that we expect and hope for
the laying aside of all political animos-
Wes, heretofore so prejudieial to the
dearest and best interests of society,
and that they at the same time render
and afford ample support for the con
tinued maintenance of the power, hon
or and dignity of the Federal Govern
ment, which has continued to foster,
cherish and protect them for now near
ly a century.
Resolved, That the forces now in
open armed rebellion are not so much
despised, or so thoroughly detested, as
the crafty traitors sympathizing with
them at home ; Ler/riots, who have
sold their birthrights for a sop of se
cession pottage, and whose example,
it is profoundly hoped, they may abun
dantly follow ere their vile proclivi
ties lead them into a more open con
flict with the Government to which
they owe life, liberty and citizenship.
Pcsolccil, That, if the mighty war
measures passed by Congress within
the preceding fortnight have any
weight; it' the patriotic resolves gush
ing forth from the thousands of hearts,
loyally pure, as the crystal waters
struck from the rock of old, indicate
anything, and if withering scorn, so
overwhelmingly exhibited towards
treason, avowed in the very Senate
chamber itself, has any significance,
then be it further
Resolved, That the signs of the times
grow encouragingly bright, ere long
to shine towards the perfect day, and
that the dirk dread hour preceding
the dawn of our country's restoration
must be rapidly passing, when this
power and glory, though crushed and
obscured for a Um% by gigantic com
binations of political hypocrisy, will
re-illumine with truth—that indestruo
tiblo element of light—the old Union
firmament, which is being oVershadow
ed at present by this fratileidal in
ternam/13 war.

tion of the principle of free Govern
ment vindicated, indeed at an unpar
alleled sacrifice, will tower majestical
ly amid those peerless results, estab
fished upon its sacred throne, beyond
the most powerful influences of future
human legislation.
Resolved, That we most heartily ap
prove and fully endorse, without ex
ception or comment, all administration
measures having a Miring upon the
ultimate annihilation of traitors, north,
south, east or west. And this to the
entire sacrifice of all that we bold most
sacred oven life itself; that without
union there must be civil discord, so
cial disturbances, domestic clamor and
strife, with its train of evils; and to
avoid these results, "ye believe it to be

fellow citizens at home, to stand up
gallantly for the old flag,,elosely ad
hering to the noble ship of State, which
will again, beyond the cavil of doubt,
outride the storm, and bring the na
tion to that glorious port, from which
treason, most foul, for a time has be

Res9lved. That in tendering our
thanks to Gov. Curtin, we say, " well

they speak for themselves and history

The• Magnificent Loyal Meeting at
New York---War Speeches By
We have no room fora report of the
'overwhelming war meeting held at
the Cooper Institute, New York, last
night, owing to the pressure on our
Cole inns.
New York has seen no meeting of
such intensity of feeling since tho mem
orable day in Union Square. Though
earnest and telling speeches were
made by Dr. Hitchcock and David
Dudley Field, yet the most effective
blows were struck by James T. Bra
dy, Judge Daly and John 'Van Buren
—men whose great popularity with
the democratic party entitles their
opinions to be taken as those of a very
large mass of their fellow-democrats.
Mr. Brady declared that he was ready
to be called a Yankee if the rebels in
sisted upon it, and, after quoting a re
mark of General Shields, that wher
ever the Yankee located a blacksmith
shop, a tavern, or a school-house, he
was never known to secede from it,
he went on to advise his Southern
brethren that if 'these Yankees, who
had a theory about the war, once got
down into the Southern territory and
put arms into the hands of the negroes
and put up their long feet on the ta
bles of the estates of which they took
possession, he did not want to be the
lawyer employed in an action of eject
ment. John Van 13nren expressed his
hearty support of the President, and
approved of the acts giving him full
control of the purse and the sword.—
There should he no outcry against
" extraordinary powers," except from
thaw who wanted to see the rebellion
lie did not question the constitution
ality of the Proclamation ; ho question
ed merely its utility. Till the so-call
ed Confederate Government was de
stroyed, he held all propositions for
peace to be entirely preposterous and
absurd. Ile would sustain this war to
the bitter end. and lie thought that, by
united action that might be reached in
ninety days.
It' you were to die to night, would
you leave those dependent upon you
as well provided tar as you would de
sire ?
Dr. Franklin said, " a policy of Life
Insurance is the cheapest and safest
mode of making a certain provision for
one's family. lt is strange that men
should be careful to Insure their hou
ses, their furniture; &c., and yet aeg=
beet to assure their lives, the most im
portant of all to their familieg, and far
more subject to loss."
Ilc,`o one, upon a bed of sickness, ever
regretted making suitable provision
for his family : at suell a time, a life,
policy can be fully appreciated.

engaged it in the early part of my
sickness; it has been purchased for
me. - Oh ! had I strength to talk of
that beautiful land." He felt no ec
static joy, but he had " peace like
river." He crossed " the river of
death," to be greeted by a mother and
little daughter on the other shore. .
The buried friend, the present year
Will meet us in our dreams,
When in the holy hush of night
The light of milers streams
Athwart the darkness, that enshrouds
Our poisoned Writs in,
And make us long to quit this world
Of darkness, and of sin.
We miss him at the morning hear,
When hymns of praise and prayer
Ascend to liimivho maketh us
The objects of his care. --
We miss the music of his voice,
So soft, so sweet, so clear
And long to hail him in that land
Undimmed by sorrow's tear.
We miss him at the cheerful board ;
His smiles are no more soon; • •
His little ones are with us Still,
Like rays of light between
This world of graves, 'and that bright
Tu which his soul has fled ;
Or like those flowers that bud and bloom
Around the youthful dead. ,
We miss him in the Sabbath School,
Around God's altar, where
With youthful hearts we e'er did meet,
And found the Saviour them
We miss hint in the class-room, "
With kind instruction given;
Be told us ofr, to persevere,
And meet hint up in Heaven.
