THE GLOBE—Some of the rebel
sympathisers have been very busy cir
culating a report that the putlication
of the Globe was diseontiratcyj f want
of patronage. We have no excuses to
offer for not issuing our paper last and
the week previous, other than the want
of hands to do the work and the incli
nation to make dollars while the reb
els were knocking at our door. All
our paper hands nobly responded to
the call of our patriotic Governor,
but we expect to he able, now that the
Southern rebels have been driven back,
to bo able to recruit another force to
enable us to issue the Globe regularly
after this week.

A Noble Contribution,
The following letter was received
on Saturday last from a former citizen

his heart is in the right place, and he
has placed the soldiers of this county
who have recently left their homes to
drive out the invader, under lasting
obligations to him:

It is hoped that this donation, al

may tend to support the union of our

The Latest from the front,
HAnnisnuno, July Bth, two o'clock
P. M.—Persons who came from the
front to-day, bring intelligence of the
most Cheering character concerning
the spirit, strength and position of
Gen. Meade's forces. "The Army of
the Potomac, is in better condition, so
far as order is concerned, than when
it fought and won the battle of Get
tysburg, and no doubt is entertained
by its gallant leader, of his entire abil
ity not only to conquer but to capture
the main body of the rebel forces."
Tan - loNtrou.—This bogus concern
made its appearance again on Friday
last, but with a new editor, the clique
in town having read the thing Owen
out of the party—or at least out of
the editorial chair. J. Irvin Steel, a
young man from Blairsville, Indiana
county, where he published a vile se
cession sheet until it died some two or
three weeks ago for want of patron
age, is the new editor. This young
man Steel is just the fellow to suit the
bogus Democracy of the county. Ills
first effort hero must convince every
body, even the readers of the Monitor,
that he can LIE as e-a-s-y as Owen and
his assistants Petrikin, Caldwell, Speer,
Africa & Co., who we have no doubt
will assist J. Irvin Steel in his duties
as editor of the rife.Lsheet.
We will give our readers a specimen,
of the truth •contairo l llthe first num
ber of the new Monitor Speaking of
the destruction of the Monitor in May
last, J. Irvin Steel says :
"An attempt has been made to cre
ate the impression that the soldiers of
the 125th Regiment, indignant at the
course of the Monitor, sought to ap
pease their patriotism in the destruc-,
tion of the office. But the partieswho
have studiously circulated this story, I
knows, or ought to know, that it is a '
base falsehood. The soldiers of this
Regiment had no part in this coward•
ly outrage and condemned its perpe
trators in the severest terms."
If it be true that the soldiers of the
125th had no part in the destruction
of the Monitor office, why did Petrikin
write out the charge and have it sworn
to by Owen, that some twenty men. of
the 125th, and other:4, did destroy the
office. And why were these men ar
rested and bound over for trial for the
destruction of the office if they had no
part in its destruction ?

At a meeting of Captain William P.

On motion, Joseph B. Erb, Amos E.

The Committee through their chair
man reported the following which
were unanimously adopted :
Whereas, In the exigency of peril,
and the consequent confusion in ap
plying the necessary wants of the
troops assembled at this' point in
defence of our old Commonwealth
against the hordes of traitors invading
her soil, the ladies of Huntingdon
came forward and cheerfully under
took, not only the preparation of the
rations supplied, but also, furnished us
with luxuries denied the soldier, thus
giving their cheerful aid and winning
smiles to the groat work. Therefore,
Resolved, That as members of Capt.
Dale's Company, we do hereby desire
to tender our unfeigned and hearty
thanks to those noble and patriotic la
dies, and more particularly to Miss
Mollie Orbison and her co-adjuitors,
who especially waited upon us, and re
ceive those' acts of kindness as strong
testimony of unwavering loyalty and
self denial on their part.
Resolved, That these resolutions be
published in the Huntingdon Globe

TO ARMS I TO ARMS!
The Governor has called for sixty
thousand of the Militia of the Com
monwealth, to drive out the invaders
of our soil and our homes. In appor
tioning this number Huntingdon coun
ty is required to raise 502, after re
ceiving credit for the Six Months'
Mon already mustered in. In the ab
sence of any legal mode of calling for
these proportions of this number from
the several boroughs and townships in
the County, the undersigned, appoint
ed a committee by a meeting held
this morning in Huntingdon for that
purpose, assume the liberty of appeal
ing to the patriotism and State pride
of the citizens, at once to come for
ward and fill this requisition. We
have made a calculation from the best
data we could obtain for ascertaining
what number of men each borough
and township should furnish in an
equal response to the Governer's call.
The number would be as follows:

to be told that the enemy has already

Pennsylvania sent the first troops to

township and borough at once raise
at least its quota, and as many more
as possible, and have them ready to
move to the appointed rendezvous.—

ing volley after volley.
At that, moment it, seemed that our
decimated lyut, not dispirited ranks
would be forced back, when suddenly
the fifth army corps came pouring
forward on the Baltimore turnpike,
and threw themselves into the breach
with a power and enemy that nothing
The volleys of musketry, which
heretofore had been distinct and de
tached, now became ono continued
and incessant crash.
Our artillery, worked with an energy
and desperation almost superhuman,
threw in grape, canister and case shot.
Four several times the rebels charged
upon that park of artillery across the
open plain. and four tithes were they
repulsed with terrible slaughter.
The promptness with which this
&mat flank movement of Leo was met
and elmelcmated reflects the highest
credit upon the General commanding.
Indeed, the troops were handled with
consununato ability during the entire
day, General made bell*, in the field,
often under a heavy fire, holding eve
rything under his own eye and super
vision, in which ho was aided and ac
companied by his Chief of Staff, the
gallant General Governeur K. War
Night came at last, and with her
sable mantle in mercy closed the scene.
The result of the day's work may
he summed up briefly thus: Lee had
been attacked on his chosen ground ;
our centre had driven the rebel lines
more than ono mile; the Army of the
Potomac, supposed by some to be de
morali4ed, had fought with a gallan
try never before equaled during the
war; our left was pushed back but
very slightly; the great strategic move
ment had been foiled. Not more than
two-thirds of our forces wore engaged
during the day. Although having
suffered severely, especially in officers,
we may safely sot down the enemy's
loss as greater than ours. The army
had been fought under a new com
mander, and with, necessarily, but an
imperfect knowledge of the army,
with all its appointments.
At dark all the advantages of the
day were in our favor, while our
troops were inspired with success, and
a heavy force, which had not previous
ly been engaged, stood ready to re
new the attack on the morrow. The
infantry firing coased'at dark, but thO
cannonading did not stop until near
nine o'clock at night, having been kept
up with great vigor from our • batter
ies, and weakly replied to by the ene
