OFFICE, CHATTANOOGA, TENN., Sept. 28, '63. DEAR FATHER AND MOTHER : Again the army of the Cumberland has met the rebel hosts, and again I am per mitted to write you. It would be im. possible for me to tell you bow thank ful I am that I escaped as well as I did; likewise, to give you all the details of the terrible battle which has been fought and is being fought day by day, since the 10th inst. I will, however, commence this letter with a short sketch of the movements of our gallant army, and the work assigned it, after which I propose to show that wo have accomplished what we undertook— and again inscribed the fair name of "The army of the Cumberland" high in tho niche of fame, and won Lew laurels for the banner of our bleeding country. The work assigned the army of the Camberiand, was to wrest from the hands of the enemy, Chattanooga, the acknowledged key to the whole South ern Confederacy, which time will fully prove. Our army was lying in the vicinity of Winchester,Ten,and though as brave and well disciplined an army as march es on the continent, it was very small numbering only—thousand cifeetn. al men, infantry, cavalry, and artille ry. It was expected that we would be confronted by Bragg and Johnston's rebel hordes, but it was not expected that our arty was to meet in battle 110,000 Rebels, tho combined forces of Bragg, Johnston, Longstreet and Ew. ell', armies. I start with the proposition that a battle had to be fought for Chattan nooga, and that it was worth a battle. It could make but very little differ ence whether the battle was fought 14 miles South of Chattanooga in Geor gia at Chatanooga, or at Atlanta. Suf fice to say:that, after a march of 200 miles " Old nosey" our gallant leader, succeeded in compelling the insurgents to evacuate their strong hold, and fail back to save Georgia. This was done by threatening Rome and Atlanta with theyight of our army—this ac complished our army, moved by the left flank cutting the enemy off from this point and leaving it to our rear and centre some sixteen miles. Tho enemy finding himself thus decoyed, chose his ground—massed his com bined forces and by 12 o'clock M. on the 19th of September, were in line of battle and the rattle of musketry and roar of artillery on the extreme left of our line told us that the terrible work had begun. Precisely at 1 P.M. our Brigade could be seen moving to ward the left at double quick, and in a few minutes we were formed in double column at half distance, and in two miles, the 77th Pa., on the right. A Brigade of Gen. Thomas' corps in our immediate front had nearly ex hausted their ammunition and had suf fered severely from the enemy's fire, owing to the fact that the rebels had possession of a rise of ground thickly studded with tall oaks and saplings, thus enabling him to use his artillery to a good advantage while ours was of little or no account. Soon the order came to relieve the Brigade in our front which was received with a wel come only known and appreciated by soldiers. lore allow me to deviate from my subject and notice a peculi arity. The first impressions of ono who never took a part in a battle would be that men would be fearful and have a downcast look just before entering the conflict. This is a mista ken idea. I bare often rode the lines under similar circumstances, and no ticed the steady step and sparkling eyes of our veteran troops and won dered bow jpollizent, beings could get I used marching and manoeavering be tween the jaws of death with a mar tial air. There is scarcely a word spoken—all is attention. It is then that the true "soldier's heart throbs for victory. But to my description of the battle. Our Brigade numbered 1100 when we went in to the engagement. The order to relieve the Brigade in our front was received—the order to de ploy into line of battle was given }}Mich was executed in as short a time as I can write it. To the charge was sounded— the Brigade wo were to re lieve fell to the ground and with a whoop and yell our little band of 1100 passed over the front line and engaged IMI the enemy. Each man had GO rounds of cartridge in his box and 10 rounds in his pockets, making 70 per man. Stone River" was our battle cry as it will be remembered the enemy drove us on the 30th of December, on the right.. We fought with scarcely any intermission until 4 o'clock, when the rebels finally Poll back with a loss of many killed and wounded, and three pieces of artillery. We had possession of the rise of ground and had driven them three quarters of a mile. While the enemy lost heavily in killed, woun ded and prisoners; wo also found that our ranks had been thinned—that we had not repulsed them without the loss of many . brave and good men whose names will be handed down to future generations and held sacred as long as Americans and American in stitutions exist. The firing heel ceased—the enemy had fallen back, and our part of the line was quiet. Instead of the shout of victory—the sharp zip of the mis siles of death and the crashing of shot and shell through the trees—the groans of the wounded and dying fell heavily- upon the ear. This to one un accustomed to the appearance of a bat tlefield is one of terror. Such senten ces as follows may he heard by the passer by. • " Tell my friends that I died a soldier in the discharge of my duty." " Pray for me Sohn lam dy ing." "Tell may friends I will meet them in heaven." By most who are not severely wounded, such express ions as the following may be heard : "Boys I am wounded, give the d—d rebels h-11-1 will pay them for this yet. " Where is the surgeon, I want to get my wound dressed; I think can conic back and give them a few more rounds." We replenished our ammunition and assumed the defensive. Just as the I sun was going down, the enemy ap peered in force, in our front, and ad vanced with a heavy line of skirmish ers. Our Brigade occupied the right of our Division, and the 77th Pa. the extreme right of the Brigade. Before the enemy showed himself in our front at sundown, it had been ascertained that the right of our lino did not con nect with the troops on our right by three quarters of a mile. The enemy's lino was too long for ours, and in or der to save the extreme left of our ar my from a flank movement, we had to stretch our lines too much. This was a period that tried men's souls, and every effort was made to fill up the gaps, which if left open threatened our Brigade with disaster. Troops were ordered from another portion of the line, to occupy the vacant space, but, alas i when they arrived the bloo dy work had been done. The enemy throw a heavy column on our front which we engaged and held in cheek until the shades of night had enveloped the contending forces in darkness. At this juncture, the enemy throw a hca, vy column around our right (the 77th Pa.) swept round and in theshort space of three or four minutes, captured near ly the whole of our regiment, and the Fifth Company of the 78th Illinois, which was posted on the left of the 77th Pa.. Among the captured, is Col. Thos. E. Race, Lt. Col. Fred. S. Pyfer, Major Philips, Capt. Robinson, Capt. McDowell, and a number other officers of the 77th. Our regiment took about 180 men into the fightand lost 101 in killed wounded and miss ing. Many of those reported missing and captured after dark, are either killed or wounded, as they received a cross fire from our line as well as the enemy's guns. After the enemy had flanked us we fell back about 300 yds. and encamped for the night. The enemy advanced his skirmishersabout 100 yards to his front front where his line engaged us at sundown. I must here relate a little circumstance which happened just after the engagement had ceased. I received an order from Col. Dodge, the Brigade commander to gather up the men who in the dark ness had become detached from their commands. I mounted my horse took an orderly with me, and plunged into the darkness toward the point where the battle had ended, and was mov ing about cautiously, meeting here and there some of our scattered men, who I directed to their regiments, when it occurred to me that I was not far enough to our front. I turned my horse to the lost, and moved further to the front. It was very dark, so dark that I could see nothing ton feet be fore nto, My trusty Orderly was close behind halted, doubted—and moved a few paces, when I was greet ed by a streak of fire, the whiz of a bul let and the shrill report of a revolver on my right. I instantly wheeled my horse and drove my heavy spurs into his sides' By the time I had thip ac complisLed, not less than 15 or 20 guns 'HUNTINGDON, PI, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1808, -PERSEVERE.- had opened upon us. My horse had made two or three plunges through the trees, when the trusty Orderly, who had got by my side exclaimed, " oh I mn shot," and fell from his horse. My horse made another plunge, in which my sword caught on a sappling and almost drew me off the horse; for tunately the sword torn loose from the belt just in time to allow me to re gain my saddle, when I made my es cape with two nice little bullet holes through the capes of my coat ; leav ing my orderly and sabre with the re bels. While I regret the loss of Pri vate Stephen Black, my orderly, as brave and good a soldier as- over liv ed, I also regretted to leave the sabre that I had carried and wielded on the fields of "Shiloh," "Corinth," ''Laverg ne," Trune "Stone River," and "Lib erty Clap." Upon the scabbard was engraved the name,renk and regiment and the engagements—quite a tro- pity, for some rebel officer. But I was satisfied to exchange my sabre for my life or to prevent may capture, for had not the sword been torn from me the instant it was, I would have either been killed, wounded or captured. I am now without a sword. Believe I shall look to my friends to send me ono. ' On the morning of the 20th, we re formed line of battle at daylight and throw up temporary breast-works. At 9 o'clock A. at., the enemy attacked us with fresh troops and tried hard to storm our works. Our artillery was well posted, and wo bad plenty of it. Our brave boys were well concealed behind logs and stones, and delivered a terrible sheet of fire into the rebel ranks, which were thrown up to with in 20 paces of the muzzles of our guns. I have seen a great deal of hard fight- ' ing since I have been in the army of the Cumberland. I have seen men allot down, in great numbers, but I never saw men three deep before breast works. Language fitils to describe the slaughter, while our boys suffered but little. The rebels threw columns one after another in mass under the fire of our ertillery and musketry. I saw whole squares of rebels swept away with grape and canister at one die charge, of a dozen pieces of field artil lery. At 10 A. M., while crawling along the works cautioning the boys to fin low, I received a contused wound below the right knee bye. spent grape shot which partially disabled me, and the ball (which was the size of a large walnut with the hull off) not been nearly spent it would have taken my leg off, The battle raged furiously along the whole line. Our Brigade fought on the left centre of ' our line. The Centre held its ground until near 12, when the enemy over powered the right and loft flanks when the centre was obliged to fall back, which though exposed to a ter rifle fire from the enemy was attended with little confusion. Our left (Tho mas' Corps) and our Division which was on his right rallied and held the ground steadily until about 5 P. M. when Rosoy withdrew the whole ar my back to Rossville a distance of about 5 miles, The rebels were too much crippled to follow. We encamp ed at Rossville in good order, and on the morning of the 21st, reformed tine of battle and threw up strong works during the day. The enemy felt our lines on the left though lightly. On the morning of the 22d at 3 o'clock we withdrew from our works and fell back to Chattanooga a distance of 5 miles without molestation, where we now occupy an impregnable position. Our lines aro strong and the rebels know it. Our pickets are within 25 paces of each other in many places along the lines. Thus the two armies have been lying in sight of each others camp fires since the 23d, and skirmish ing and heavy cannonadieg occurs every day. So there ended the battle of Chickamaugua, Georgia. Out of the 1100 men which our Brigade took into the fight, 030 were killed, wound ed and missing. I now propose to return to my first, proposition, viz; that Chattanooga had to be taken and that in order to take it a battle bad to be fought. That battle has been fought, and although many a brave man was sacrificed, yet the enemy who had nearly twice the number of mon that we bad—and part of them the flower of the Potomac ar my was glad to compromise with two days hard fighting. )Ve lost but ono general officer, while Bragg's own report to Jell' Davis states that ho lost 14 general officers. Although we fell hacker! Chattapooga, it was done in good order; true, we left the battle-field in the hands of the enemy, but I thank the good fortune of war we loft it in poues;,ion art shattered rebel army-:-these of the PotOmae satisfied that they had not been "fighting eastern TankeesP— le ,, : &\,.. , , ~, sr , zl - 4 1 -=', • _. 4 which is one of Lo»gstreet's own Ma jor's words. The battle has been fought and who has Chattanooga? Rosecrarfs little army has it and they propose to keep it. The work assigned us has been accomplished and the Star-Spangled Banner floats proudly over tho ram parts of the rebel stronghold. All honor to the dead whose blood bought the vitals of the "Confederacy;" and a continual hell on earth to Copperheads and "peace" Democrats. By the bles sing of God I hope to live to see the day when every tory will bear the brand of traitor on both cheeks and be scoffed at by the civilized world. I have a young brother at home who will some day tako my place. I trust that you will train him up a true American—that you will instill into his mind the following precepts : his God first, his country all the time:— teach him that a traitor to his country is only worthy of all the disgrace that can bo heaped upon him. Explain to hint that a "peace" Democrat is a man who is in the first place a dastardly coward-.-a poor, unprincipled wretch, unworthy the protection of his coun try's flag, and far beneath the notice of those who adhere to the principles of our Revolutionary fathers, who es tablished the only truly good, great, and happy Government on the face of the globe. I have not time to write you more. What I have written has been done in haste, but in conclusion allow mo to say that so long as the civil laws of our land—alr! the land of Penn—impris ons men for putting down treason, so long will the military operate under disadvantages. And I pledge you my word of honor as an American soldier, that revenge is sweet and it shall be mine. Remember what I write you.— There is a day coining when it will ho my time to appear as a civilian, and by the eternal gods, some Copperheads —dirty, insignificant traitors—who, out of fear of being brought to the field of battle, announced themselves as being opposed to the war and con scientiously opposed to sustaining the banner of their country, and the em blem of their greatness. Tell all trai tors that my name is Samuel T. Davis; that I am their eternal enemy both in this and the world to come; that bell is full of such men as they are, and that the devil is anxiously awaiting their arrival. SAML. T. DAVIS. TUT: following communication is-as mislaid or it would bavo been publiBh ed last week : EAST BARRE; Oct. 5, 18G3. Ifa. Enrrou I see from the pe rusal of your valuable columns, from week to week, that there aro commu nications from the army, and from the East and West, and from writers in your own town, I thought perhaps a few words from our part of the county would not bo amiss, unless it might bo construed into contraband of war. I will try, however, to say nothing that wonld convict mo without the habeas corpus. As I am no writer I will merely try to give you passing events as they may occur to mo and you will pardon me if I should weary your good nature. Tho farmers gen erally have finished seeding, and tho grain begins to grow again. I have often thought this to be the gloomiest season of the year. The frost has ri pened the corn, and also blighted veg etation. Autumn is again upon us, and the surrounding hill tops and woody vales aro beginning to wear the aspect of the sear and golden h3af. Soon the old oak will be robbed of its foliage, and its brawny limbs exposed to chill Winter's stormy blast, and the lovely flower robbed of its fragrance and will crumble and die 'mouth the clods of the valley, warning frail mor tals to be always ready. Nature will then assume the gloom of loneliness.— But pardon me, I was lengthening my paragraph; I must proceed to toll you the news according to promise. There was a Sunday School Festival at Manor Ilill a few days ago, which I am happy to say was indeed a grand affair. The children, teachers, and everybody else, collected at the M. E. Church with their baskets of good things, and after listening to an able address by Rev. Smith, did some beau tiful singing; then proceeded to Mr. Ewing's grove, and there spread their bountifq, tables and invited all to par take of tholuxuriosspread before them. The youth were there in grand profu sion, the middle-aged and the aged, each one trying to enjoy themselves in the toot manner possiblp. Nature erowned their table with liar rich au tumnal fruits, and the kind bands of loving mothers had pap 4 yiod with each other whieh could make their lit tle ones the most happy, and the little ones seemed Lo think all is ours. The teachers and superintendents were also TERMS, $1,50 a year in advance there, each attending to the wants of their little ones, feeling that in the discharge of their respective duties the smiles of kind Heaven would rest upon them. After enjoying themselves till Into in the day all seemed to regret that the day was over, but feeling that duty called them to separate, each feeling that theirs was a festive day long to be remembered, Thus passed ono of the most memorable days Old Manor OVCV boasted of. Thanksgiving Proclamation, IVAsinvoToN, Oct. 3.—By the Pres ident of the United States of America. 4 PROCLAMATION The year that is drawing to its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constant ty enjoyed that we aro prone to for get the source front which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they cannot fidl to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually- in sensible to the ever watchful provi dence of Ahulghty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magni tude and severity, which has some times to invite and provoke the ag gressions of foreign States, peace has been preserved with all natious, order has been maintained, laws have been respected mid obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict. While that theatre has been greatly contract• ed by theadvaneing armies and navies of the Union The needful diversions of wealth and strength, m to the fields. of peaceful industry, to the national defence, have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship, The axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than hereto fore. The population has steadily in creased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the hattleftekl, and the coun try, rejoicing in the conscientiousness of augmented stre»gth and vigor, is permitted to expect a continuance of years, with a large increase of freedom no human counsel barb designed. Not withstanding the modal hand had worked on these great things, tiicy are gracious gifts of the Most High Clod, who, while dealing with us in an ger for our sins, bath nevertheless re m/timbered mercy. It has seemed to me. tit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefUlly acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do, therefore, invite my fellow citi zens in all parts of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday in November next as a day of thanksgiving and prayer to our be nificcnt Father who cloth reside in the heavens, and I recommend them that, while offering up the' ascriptions just ly duo to hint for such singular deliv erances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our nation al perverseness and disobedience corn mend to his tender care all those who have become widows and orphans or suffering in the civil strife in which we aro unavoidably engaged, and fervent ly implore the interposition of the Al mighty band to preserve the health of the nation and to restore it, as soon as it may be consistent with the di vine purposes, to the full enjoyment ofpcaeo, harmony, tranquility and Union. In testimony wherof I have here unto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

CHENEY, Editor, To whom all communications on tho sub= ject of Education should bo addressott "Who is the teacher of our school ?"‘ is an interrogation very ft ()fluently put to the parent by the little ems seated around the fireside at thidsea son of the year. They know, by some means, that their district is entitled to three or four months school in the year and that is "kept" in the winter so that the big boys can have an opportunity to go. Well, the father says, such a man is to_ take charge of their school, and he hopes bo will make them mind what ho says by making good use of the "birch." The teacher comes and takes charge of the school. At the close of the day the little ones aro again around, the fireside, not to question but be ques tioned. The father is eager to know whether the rod, the great auxiliary in "school-ki!epiug," has been brought into use, and whether such a neigh-. . hoes children were there, and wheth er they got a whipping the "first day of ached." if they did, and his' chit dren did not, then they have a good master, who knows when children neell - Whipping. said concerning the mode of instrue, tion or whether any new books aro required by the little ones, who have never boon taught that there was any intrinsic value in books, but that, it would not look well to go to school without them. Tie is now satisfied that they have. a good master, and one who be trusts will keep on the right side of Ms chil dren, and apply the rod freely to all who need it, for he knows his children will not need it: Now ; the above pirturo is not mere ly an imaginary one, but such a one as has been too often witnessed 111 ma , ny parts of oar Whose fault is it that such a state of things exists ? Not the father's, who, questioned and decided as above; but the man who takes charge of' the school. That old father, perhaps, new er was at school a day in his life, and why should ho know anything of the proper workings of a school "kept" ou scientific principles? Why should he know but that the old books are the very things that his children need?— But if on the other band his child had come home at the, close of the first, day's school with a smile on his NMl tena.nee, overjoyed' with the happy time spent during the day with the new teacher, saying that he was So, kind and good, and told them so many nice things about what they were go-. ing to do during the time be hoped. to spend so pleasantly with them, and that he hoped their parents would be kind enough to get them such a book, for it was just the one they would need, and that they would all be good children and study hard to improve their minds so that they might become useful mon and women, his questions would have been different. They never heard so much kindness from a teach er in their lives, nod of course they are delighted. If the teacher is the right kind of n man, and the child's heart is mild° glad by being in his presence, the father will be likely to go and see why it is that his child talks so much of school an,4 of his . books, The teacher has the character of the school in his hands, and if it is to be- come an interesting one ho must make it so. If the patrons of the school Over raise his salary he must show them by his zeal iu the cause of oda-. cation that-he is worthy of a larger salary. If he would have the number of months in the term of school in creased he mast improve what there now is, for the shorter the term the better, when that man is the teacher' who has just taken charge of the school for the sake of making a little money through the rough weather in the winter. In a word the teachers are responsible for the character of our schools and the length of term they are kept open, and whenever they feel that responsibility, our schools will be what they should be and not till then.
