At the time the 46th Regiment, P.
V. M., of which Col. Sohn J. Lawrence
is Commander, was ordered to Phila
delphia, the ladies of Huntingdon were
getting up a flag to be presented to it
in their names, but the departure of
the Regiment before it could be pre

it at lluntmgdon, where the Regiment
was formed. The flag was prepared
ill Philadelphia under the direction of
Erskine 11. Miles, Ist Lieut. of the 3d

to the Regiment in Philadelphia by
the request of the fair donors, in the

Sin:—The Ladies of Huntingdon
have requested me to present to the
soldiers of the 46th Penna. Vol. Militia
this Mag. his the Flag of our country,
and it has commanded the respect and
admiration of the world for over eigh
ty years. It has floated on every sea
on the Globe, and ever been looked
upon as the banner of the free and the
brave. Its lustre, thank God i 6 still
undimmed, and the protection of its
honor and'its glory is bequeathed to
you, and to me, and to every lover of
his country. To shield it is a sacred
trust, and to die beneath its folds is the
best epitaph on earth.
The donors of this flag repose COD fi
• donee in you and I know that you will
not betray it. To many of you the roar
of musketry, the thunder of artillery,
the bursting shell and the crashing
steel are peculiar sounds. You have
heard them all on the blood stained
fields of "Antietam, Fredericksburg,
and Chancellorsville." Von nobly sus
taiued the honor of your flag then and
the occasion is as important and as sa
cred now. Your services may not be
required, but should they be, if the
scones that have disgraced New York
are to be re-enacted here, (which God
forbid,) and you are called upon to
meet the traitorous foe, meet them, not
with blank eartrigcs, but with the
deadly bullet and the cold piercing
steel. But it; is needless for me to tell
you your duty. You all know it and
can execute it. The time for talking
has gone by and the eloquence of ac
tion has taken its place. Tidings of
victory aro borne to us on every
breeze, and God grant, that ere long
the flag of our Union, by "angel hands
to valor given," will again and forev
er wave over every hill and every fbrt
on this "our own, our native land."

on behalf of the loyal ladies of Hunt

Interesting from Gettysburg.
We, find the following items of gen
eral interest in the Adams Sentinel, of
the 28th inst :
TOUCHING INCIDENT Or THE BATTLE
FIELD.—Ono day last week, among
the relics of the dreadful fight, there
was picked up by a soldier, and pre
sented to a lady of our acquaintance,
a small paper, which contained two
separate locks of hair attached there
to, directed to Mr. Wellerford, from
Louisiana, by his wife, in a beautiful
handwriting. Below one lock was
Fanny WeHerford, below the other
Richard Wellerford—and below both
"Our darlings."' These tender memen
toes of his home and children had been
sent on to him by his attached wife,
to cheer his heart in the far distant
land to which the fortunes of war had
brought him; and probably he wore
the tender testimonials near his heart
when the fatal missile of death separ
ated hint from those he loved in his
far off southern home. Strangers now
possess the tender relic, and he rests
beneath the clods of a northern valley,
his grave probably unmarked and un
distinguished from hundreds around
him, who met their death on the bloody
field of Gettysburg—and his wife and
children look in vain for the return Of
the loved husband and litthcr.
The Christian Commission and San- I
itary Commission are still en g a ge d in '
the noble work of bringing comfort to
the wounded soldier. Boxes of valua
ble articles aro still pouring in for
them from the cities and country—and
they are liberally dispensed. We can
bear testimony to the self-denying la
bors of the members of the Christian
Commission, who have been for many ,
days and nights attending to the wants
and ministering to the comforts of the

Rebel Atrocities in East Tennessee,
The editor of the Memphis Bulletin,
who has been on a visit to Nashville,
communicates the following to his pa
per, in reference to rebel rule in east,
Tennessee. Col. Crawford, the gen
tleman from whom the facts are ob
tained, has a, personal knowledge of
some of the circumstances, having left
the scenes of their enactment quite re
cently, and vouches for the truth of
all of them.
In the month of January, 156:13, at
Laurel, N. C., near the Tennessee bor
der, all the salt was seized for distri
bution by Confederate commissioners.
Salt was selling at seventy-five to one
hundred dollars a sack. The commis
sioners declared that the "to'•ics sho'd
have none," and positively refused to
give Union men their portion of the
quantity to be distributed in that vi
cinity. This palpable injustice roused
the Union men; they assembled to
gether and determined to seize their
proportion of the salt by force. They
did so, taking at Marshall, N. C-, what
they deemed to be their just share.
Immediately afterwards, the 65th
North Carolina regiment, under com
mand of Lieutenant Colonel James
Keith, was ordered to Laurel to arrest
L. M. Allen was Col. of the regi
ment, but had been suspended for six
months for crime and drunkenness.—
Many of the men engaged in the salt
seizure left their homes. Those who
did not participate in it became the
sufferers. Among those arrested were
Joseph Wood, about sixty years of
ago; David Shelton, sixty; James
Shelton, fifty; Roddy Shelton, forty
five; Elison King, forty; linden Moore,
forty; Wade Moore, thirty-five; Isai
ah Shelton, fifteen ; Win. Shelton 12;
James Metcalf, ten ; Jasper Channel,
fourteen; Stumm] Sliblton, nineteen,
and his brother, aged seventeen, sons
of Lifus Shelton—in all, thirteen mon
and boys. Nearly all of them declar
ed they were innocent, and had taken
no part in appropriating the salt.—
They begged for a trial, asserting that
they could prove their in nocence.
Colonel Allen, who was with his
troops, but not in command, told them
they should have a trial, but they
would be taken to Tennessee for that
purpose. They bid farewell to their
wives, daughters, and sisters, direct
ing them to procure the witnesses and
bring them to the court in Tennessee,
where they supposed their trial would
take place. Alas! how little they drea
med what a fhtc awaited them !
The poor fellows had proceeded but
a few miles when they were tinned
from the road into a gorge in the
mountain, and halted. Without any
warning of what was to be done with
them, five of them were ordered to
kneel down. Ten paces in front of
th ese f iv e, a file of soldiers were plac
ed with loaded muskets. The terrible
reality flashed upon the. minds of the
doomed patriots. Old man - Wood,
(sixty years of age) cried out: "For
God's sake, 11100, you are not going to
shoot us ? If you are going to murder
us, give us at least time to pray."—
Colonol Allen was reminded of his
- promise to give them a trial. They
were informed that Allen had no au
thority; that Keith was in command;
and that there was no time for pray
ing. The order was given to fire.—
The old men' and boys put their hands
to their faces and rent the air with
their agonizing cries of despair; the
soldiers wavered, and hesitated to
obey the command. Keith said, if they
did not fire instantly he would make
them change places with the prison
ers. The soldiers raised their guns,
the victims shuddered convulsively,
the word was given to fire, and the
five men fell pierced with rebel bullets.
Old man Wood and Shelton were shot
in the head, their brains scattered
upon the ground, and they died with
out a struggle. The other three lived
Only a few minutes.
Five others were ordered to kneel,
among them little Billy Shelton, a
mere child, only twelve years old. He
implored the men not to shoot him in
the face. "You have killed my father
and brothers," said ho; "you have
shot my father in the face; do not
shoot mo in the face." lie covered
his face with his hands. The soldiers
received the order to fire, and five
more fell. Poor little Billy Shelton
was wounded in both arms. lie ran
to an (Aker, clasped him around the
legs, and besought him to spare his
life. "You have killed my old father
and my three brothers; you have Eliot
mo in both arms—l forgive you all
this—l can get well. Let me go home
to my mother and sisters."' What a
heart of adamcnt the man must have
who could disregard such an appeal
The little boy was dragged back to
the place of execution; again the ter
rible word "fire!" was given, and he
fell dead, eight balls having entered
his body. The remaini»g three were
nuirdered in the same manner, Those

with the same barbel ity. And the
men who did this were called soldiers!
The daughters of William Shelton, a
man of wealth and highly respectable,
were requested by sonic of the officers'
to sing and play for them. They play
ed and sang a few national airs.—
Keith learned of it, and ordered that
the ladies be placed under arrest and
ordered to the guardhouse, where they
remained all night.
Ohl Mrs. Sallie Moore, seventy years
of age, was whipped with hickory rods
till the blood ran in streams down her

How the Rebels gei; Conscripts,
INDIAN.A.uor,rs, Ind., July 22
Having reached hero this morning
in charge of forty-seven prisoners of
war, captured at Champion Bills bat
tle,, and having an hour or two leisure
before starting on my return, I have
concluded to improve the time by ma
king another "jotting by the way."
Among the prisoners were natives
of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Ten
nessee and Arkansas; and having a
curiosity to know what was thought
of the war by themselves, and by the
people of the communities from which
they came, I called one after another
to take a scat beside me, and in the
course of familiar conversation I learn
ed from each all I could.
The first with whom I conversed
was a native of blast Tennessee. His
story was brief but very interesting
and instructive. While about a mile
away from. home, on the high road, he'
was seized by a party of rebel soldiers,
and told that he must join them. He
declined, saying that he had an aged
father and mother at, home who were
dependent upon him, and that his wife
and two small children had no other
protector or any One upon whom they
could rely for support; but all his
pleading was of no avail. Without a
coat or preperation of any kind, and
without even permitting him to go to
his home to bid his loved ones fare
well, they compelled him at once to
"fall in," and in due time delivered
him over to the commanding officer
In the fights which occurred prior
to Pemberton and his forces going in
to Vicksburg he was in the ranks, but
having a constant desire to get rid of
a service he so much disliked, and in
which he was so inhumanly thrust, he
managed Lo lagThellind on the plea of
sickness, and was finally picked up by
our own troops. His lips trembled
and eye glistened as he told his pitiful
history, and again and again he said
if he only bad his wife and children,
and father and mother here, lie would
willingly abandon what little he left
behind and rid himself from such a
people for ever.
Ile further told me that an old un
cle of his, who and given food to some
Union soldiers who had chanced to
pass his house, was attacked by a reb
el soldier and actually cut to pieces at
his own home, receiving three gashes
in the left breast with a bowie, knife.
With such examples of Southern eon
seripti6n and brutality before us, who
could tied fault with the just and equi
table law passed by our own Congress
for obtaining soldiers; and who will
not thank God that lie does not live in
the midst of such beasts and demons?
The next one with whom I convers
ed was also from East Tennessee, and
he too had been compelled to go into
the rebel ranks, but under less ac t-
voting circumstances. A squad of reb
el soldiers come to his house and in
formed him that both he and an elder
brother must, go with them. "Ile and
his brother both tried to excuse them
selves because of their having thmilies
who were wholly dependent upon them
for support, and that if they left there
would he no one to look arer their grow
ing crops, besides which the elder bro
ther was in very poor health ; but no
excuse would he accepted, and they
were compelled to march away, though
they were permitted to bid farewell to
their wives and little ones before leav
" I asked him whether they had not
beeh regularly conscripted and notified
thereof? lie answered no—that they
had no intimation whatever of the
matter until called upon by the rebel
squad ; and that, though earnestly ap
pealed to take the elder brother before
an examining surgeon, they - utterly
refused, but marched them straight off
to Yicksburg. The older brother only
stood it about a month. Ito sickened
still more, and finally died, and this
brother is alone left to toll the sad news
to his afflicted family. He had never
heard from either of the families, or
from any of his friends, since he left
home, and seemed much (distressed for
the want of knowledge as to their fate.
Both these Tennessecans informed me
that in their neighborhoods the Union
feeling largely predominated, and that
none joined the service front there ex
cept those forced into the ranks.
After this evidence from those who
have seen and suffered, I better under
stand the force of Parson Brownlow's
statements relative to the suffering of
the Union people in blast Tennessee.

An Act of Villainy,
A correspondent of the Boston nav
e/ter, writing Iron Sharpsburg
count of General Kilpatrick's charge
on the enemy's roar guard, near
Downsville, relates the occurrence of I
a dastardly act, as follows:
'On Tuesday General Kilpatrick
got within half a mile of the enemy's
rear guard, near Downsville, when our !
spies discovered that lines cf rifle-pits I
were ready to contest their advance.
These works were erected on the b r ow!
of quite a large hill, and General Nil
patricle at once resolved to feel the
strength of his foe. Two companies
of the 6th Michigan cavalry, 13 and P,
were ordered to charge up the hill to
the earthworks, which was done in
fine style. As our men dashed in sight
the rebels were seen to throw. down
then• arms and hoist a flag of trace.
Supposing, of course, the enemy had
surrendered, they continued on, and
when within fifty or sixty feet the en
tire rebel force, which must, have num
bered from WO to 1,000 men, seized
their rifles and fired upon our men,
taking them completely by surprise.
Pinding the force so much larger
than they anticipated, our men gave
them a volly and full back to the main
body of - cavalry. The rebels, after
completely stripping the victims of
their shoes and stockings, fled to a
dense piece of woods three miles be
yond, carrying off their dead and woun
ded. T visited the scene of their bel
ied plot in order to obtain the casual
ties, and a more revolting spectacle
never presented itself.
in all directions, as far as the eye
c.otthl reach on the top of the hill, lay
the lifeless remains of our brave de
fenders, the warm blood oozing from
their mortal wounds in streams that
formed in pools amid the grass, while
at their side., blooding, lay their faith
ful chargers, still' in death, the sharers
of their fate.
A knot of soldiers gathered around
the bodies of,' the slain, swearing, eter
nal revenge upon the dastardly assass
ins who so cowardly shot their heroic
comrades, and then bayoneted them.
This is a horrible fact, which I wit
nessed personally—after killing our
tnen, they pierced their bodies with
bayonets and swords, robbed the dead
of their finger-rings, boots, stockings,
hats, and every article of value.
The Capture of Morgan,
The Cleveland llcr•ald furnishes the
following particulars of the capture of
Morgan and his gang.
"On Saturday General Brooks, com
manding the department, proceeded
to Wellsville and established his head
quarters in the Cleveland and Fitts
burg depot, where he was assisted by
the managing officer of the road, who
had placed the transportation and tel
egraph resources of the road at his dis
po;al. Finding that there was a prob
ability that Morgan would cross the
road in the vicinity of Salineville,
train of cars was sent up the road,
about 6 o'clock Sunday morning, with
a regiment of six months Pennsylva
nia infantry, mulct' command of Col.
Gallagher. These were disembarked
at Salineville, and inarched to a point
about two miles distant, where the reb
els were expected to cross. The in
fantry were posted on some rising
ground commanding the road, with or
ders to prevent Morgan's passage.
'At this time the utmo-dt alarm ex
isted among the people of Salineville.
The houses were closed, doors and
windows locked and' barred, and wo
men and children stampeding into the
country with whatever poq . able pro
perty could be carried altnig. The
men who had weapons and courage
turned out to resit the progress of the
dreaded rebel, whilst all the others fled
with the women and children.
"Tit it short limo the et:peeled reb
els made their appearance, coming
round a bend in the road. On entell
inp sight of the infantry, they halted,
and turned their horses heads in ano
ther direction. Before they could get
out of the trap they found themselves
in, Major Way, with two hundred and
fifty men of the 9th Michigan cavalry,
dashed in among them and commenc
ed cutting right and left. The rebels
made but a brief resistance. .A few
shots Were fired by them, and Mien the
whole party broke into utter confus
ion. Men dismounted, threw down
their arms mid begged for quarter,
whilst others gallopped around Wildly
in search of a place of escape, and were
"brought to Lime" by a pistol shot or
Pa bre Stroke.
".Morgan himself was riding in a
carriage drawn by two white hot ses.
Major Way saw him, and gallopping
up reached for him. Morgan jumped
out at the other side of the carriage,
leaped over a fence, seized a horse,
and galloped off as fast as horse flesh,
spurred by frightened heels, could car
ry him. About a couple of hundred
of his men succeeded in breaking away
and following their fugitive leader.—
In the buggy, thus hastily "evacua
ted" by Morgan, were found his 'Ta
tions," consisting of a loaf of bread,
some hard-boiled eggs, and a bottle of
"The number of killed in this fight
was much less than at first reported.
The number of killed rebels were set
down at front twenty to thirty, but
this must be overrated, as we cannot
learn of more than five or six dead bo
dies having been found. There was a
considerable number of wounded, and
about two hundred prisoners taken,
together with horses and arms. A
special train was sent to Wellsville in
the afterndon, with about two hundred
and fifty prisoners, captured in the
fight, or picked up in the neighbor
)lorgan and the remainder of his
sea, tered forces pressed three citizens
of Balineville into their service as
guides, and con tuned their flight on
the New Lisbon road. One of the im
pressed guides made his escape and
rode back, conveying intelligence of
the route taken, which it was believ
ed was with the ultimate design of
reaching, the Ohio river .higher up—
forcds were immediately dispatched
from Wellsville to head him off, while
another three, followed hotly in his
rear, and a strong malitia force from
