WILLIAM LEWIS, Editor and Proprietor.
Our Army Correspondence.
Camp of 147th, Pa, Vol,
Dec. 13, 1863.
EDITOR :-All eyes have been turn
ed to the Army of the Cumberland.
The late success of its arms have been
fully detailed to the loyal millions of
anxious friends at home. Now that
the smoke of battle is lifted, and we
have rested our weary jaunted limbs,
we gather around our camp-fires and
recount the struggles and incidents of
the memorable past. The 2d, Divis
ion, 12th Corps, in connection with a
portion of Gen. Thomas' command
from Chattanooga, took . possession of
Lookout Valley, about the latter part
of October, and closed up to the foot
of Lookout Mountain. This move
ment, as will be remembered, opened
communications to Chattanooga, or
within three miles of that place, and
relieved the army from a long and
circuitous transportation. The rebels
in vain, attempted to wrest it back a
gain, culminating in a desperate night
attack and repulse, on Gen. Goary's
Division, on the 28th of October. The
11th Corps erne to our assistance and
the rebels retreated to theirmountain
stronghold. The taking of Lookout
Mountain on the 24th Nov.,-will stand
prominent on the pages of the history
of this war; and with it stands insepa
rably, the "White Star" Division. The
slow, steady, and difficult charge up
the rugged sides of that stupendous
and seeming invincible stronghold of
rebel prowess; contested step by step,
by a rebel force fully equal in num
bers to that of the attacking party,
can only find its parallel -in the gran
dest charges of this war. The Divis
ion was supported by other troops,
only, when it had gained a point on
the south east side which caused the
enemy to abandon the mountain.
Lookout ours ! Yes, and all the army
10 111 euibuinelljen
followed Missionary Ridge on the 25th
Onward we pressed the broken and
retreating - o°lmila of frightened reb
cls. Prisoners in every direction pas
sed us; captured cannon, caissons and
wagons. we met in our pursuit, while
the usual rout of an army was vi sable
at every step. On the 27th we en
countered the enemy's left, strongly
fortified at Ringgold, Ga., where they
were posted on Taylor's Ridge, and
holding a gap through it. The Di
vision lost severely in this action, and
we mourn the loss of some of the bra
vest spirits, that ever gave up their
lives for our struggling country. Thu.
ridge was taken after three hears des
pertlte fighting. Some miles beyond
this ridge the pursuit ended, and we
returned to our old camps where we
had left all our baggage. Found ev
erything all right. As we had the
extreme right of our line, little could
be gathered from the left and centre,
excepting the thunder of artillery and
incessant roar of musketry, keeping
pace with our column on the right.
The western troops who viewed us,
from the "Army of the Potomac,"
with considerable contempt, have ex
pressed more liberal and friendly o
pinions of us, and really lavish high
enconiams on the 11th and 12th corps.
We don't find Lee to pit against us here.
The country bordering on Georgia, is
not fertile. The Tennessee river runs
very winding.through the broken and
irregular ranges of this mountainous
region. Many oldie residents here
are very loyal to our cause, and are of
the true Brownlow stamp.
The Penna. Regiments in this army
were honored by the visit of a Corn
' mission sent by the Goverrjor, to loOk
after the wants and welfare of Penna.
troops. The party were composed of
Drs. King and Franklin and Mr. Fran
cis, ex Senator from Lawrence co. Af
ter glowing speeches from each,--and
one from our old commander, Gen.
Geary, the regiments gave them three
cheers, and felt honored to receive
them from their old State.
At this time great activity is going
on in re-enlistments of Veteran Vol
unteers. Whole regiments have re
enlisted and are about to start to Pa.
to recruit up, and take advantage of
-the furlough and bounty offered them
by the Government. To morrow the
29th P. V., starts—others are nearly
ready. Scarcely a I . o.4lment in this
Division but will take the offer, and
return in a body to their respective
States—op 30 day's furlough.
Now is the 'time for the good and
patriotic citizens of our county (Hunt
ingdon) to show their benevolence and
appreciation of the veteran soldier.
Besides the usual government hount7.
let our people add $2OO or $3OO more
to it and give that amount to each
veteran soldier who re-enlists. The
old soldier does not want to be bought.
The money is not so much an object
to him, as the appreciation shown for
his services. The effect of such a
movement would be magical, and al
most all the old, tried, and faithful sol-
diers of Penna., would,. by Spring time
be again ready for the field. How
much more prudent and saving it
would be to all at home, in the end ?
Instead of lavishing extravagant boun•
ties on new and untried volunteers,—
(who before they become innured to
the hardships of soldiers' life, waste
ono half of their numbers away by
sickness and other causes,) offer a lib
eral bonus to the veteran, and our or
ganizations remain unimpaired, in the
field. Now is the time to act, if you
will save a draft; if you will do a cred
it to your State, and to the faithful
boys who have withstood all that man
can endure. Show an appreciation of
their services. Keep up the organ
ized regiments as they are, and ono
more Summer will witness the final
and lasting blow to the great Southern
Rebellion. Paus.
The Diseases and Infirmities Exemp
ting From Draft.
WAsiumaTos, Nov. 9, 1863. JI
CIRCULAR No. 100.—Paragraph
eighty-five of the regulation for the
government of the buronu of the Pro
vost Marshal General of the Unitod
States, is amended to read as lollows:
85. The following diseases and in-
firmities are those which disqualify for
military service and for which only
drafted mon aro to be "rejected as
physically or mentally unfit for the
service," viz :
1. Manifest imbecility.
2. Insanity. This includes well os
tablished recent insanity,.with liability
to recurrence.
3. For this disability the statement
of the drafted man is not sufficient, and
the fitet must be estalffished by the
duly- attested affidavit of -a_ ois,.sietr i s,
in good standing who has attended
him in the disease within the six
months immediately preceding his ex
amination by the board.
4. Paralysis; general, or of one limb,
or choreas, their existence to he ade
quately determined. Decided atro
phy of a limb.
5. Acute or organic diseases of the
brain or spinal cord ; of the heart or
lungs; of the liver or spleen; of the
kidneys or bladder, which have so se
riously impaired his general health as
to leave no doubt of the man's inca
pacity for military service.
G. Confirmed consumption. Incipi
ent consumption does not exempt.
7. Cancer; aneurism of the large a.r
8. Inveterate and extensive disease
of the skin, sub as will necessarily
impair his efficiency as a soldier.
9. Decided feebleness of constitution,
or deficient size of chest, sufficient in
degree to leave no doubt of the man's
unfitness for military service.
10. Scrofula, or constitutional syph
ilis, which has so seriously impaired
his general health, as to leave no doubt
of the man's incapacity for military
IL Habitual and confirmed intern
peranco, or solitary vice, which has so
materially enfeebled the constitution
as to leave no doubt of the man's in
capacity for military service.
12. Chronic rheumatism, unless man.
ifested by positive change of structure,
or wasting of the affected limb, or puff
ness, or distortion of tho joints, does
not exempt. Impaired motion of the
joints.and contraction of the limbs al
leged to arise from rheumatism, and
in which the nutrition of the limbs is
not manifestly impaired, are to be
proved by examination, while in a
state of anthesia induced by other on•
13. Pain, whether simulating head
ache neuralgia in any of its forms,
rheumatism, lumbago, or affection of
the muscles, joints or bones, is a symp
tom of diseaso so easily pretended,
that it is not to bo admitted as a cause
of exemption, unless accompanied
with manifest derangement of the gen
eral health, wasting of a limb, or oth
er positive sign of disqualifying local
14. Great injuries, or diseases of
the skull, occasioning impairment of
the intellectual faculties, epilepsy, or
other manifest nervous or spasmodic
15. Total loss of sight; total loss of
sight of light eye; cataract of right
oyo; loss of crystalino lons of right eye.
16. Partial loss of sight of both
eyes, vision being so greatly impaired
as to leave no doubt of the man's ina
bility to perform military duty. fl e
rious permanent disease of the eye or
eyelids, so manifestly affecting the
use of the eyes, as to leave no doubt
of the man's incapacity for military
service. Nearsightedness does not
exempt; if found on trial to be so de
cided as to incapacitate for field ser
vice, the man may be transferred to
the invalid corps.
17. Total loss of nose; deformity of
nose so great as seriously to obstruct
respiration; ozaena, dependent on car
ies in progress.
18. Decided deafness. This disa
bility must not be admitted on the
mere statement of the drafted man,
but must be proved by the existence
of positive disease:or by other satis
factory evidence; and it must be so
decided as to leave no doubt of the
man's unfitness for military service.
Chronic purulent otorrhcea.
17. Incurable diseases or deformi
ties of either jaw, such as will-necessa
rily greatly impede mastication or
speech. Anychlosis of the lower jaw;
caries of the bone of the face, if in
progress; cleft palate (bony;) exten
sive loss of substance of the cheeks, or
salivary fistula.
20. Dumbness; permanent loss of
voice; not to be admitted without
clear and satisfactory proof.
21. Total loss of tongue; hypertro
phy, atrophy, mutilation, or obstinate
chronic ulceration of the tongue, ifauf
ficient in degree to interfere seriously
with the use of the organ.
22. Stammering,_ftexcessi.vo .and_
confirmed; to be established by satis
fa.ctory evidence under oath.
23. Loss of a gait:lent number of
teeth to prevent mastication of food.
This applies to those cases only where
the loss of teeth is so great that, if the
man was restricted to solid food, he
would soon become incapacitated for
military service.
24. Tumors or wounds of the neck
impeding respiration or deglutition;
fistula of larynx or trachea; toriticol
lie, if of long standing, and well mar
25. Deformity of the chest, or ex
cessive curvature of the spine, suffi
cient to precept the cerrLing, of arms
anTlitilitarrequiptrretrta; caries of the
spine, ribs, or sternum.
26. Abdomen grossly protuberant;
excessive obesity.
27. Hernia.
28. Artificial anus; stricture of the
rectum; prolapsus ani. Fistula in ono
is not a positive disqualification, but
may be so, if extensive or complicated
with visceral disease..
29. Old and ulcerated internal hem
orrhoids, if in degree sufficient to im
pair the man's efficiency. External
hemorrhoids are no cause for exemp
30. Total loss or nearly total loss

complicated by disease of the bladder;
urinary fistula. Recent or spasmodic
stricture of the uretha does not ex
32. Incontinence of urine, being a

33. Loss or complete atrophy of
both testicles from any cause; perma
nent retention of one or both testicles
within the inguinal canal; but volun

34. Confirmed or malignant sarcoce

ganic disease of the testicle. Warico
cele is not in itself, disqualifying.
34. Loss of an arm, forearm, band,
log, thigh or foot.
36. Wounds, muscular or cutaneous
contractions from wounds or burns or
tumors, which would prevent march

tato the man for military service.-
37. Fractures, irreducible disloca

Volunteering and the Drafts
HARRISBURG, Dee. 10, 1863. J
No. 48.
Tho President of the United States
having, by his communication of the
gth'inst., in response to propositions
submitted to him relating to the re
cruiting service in Pennsyltania, un
der his call of October 17th ultimo, for
300,000 men, approved of eo much
thereof as is comprised under the fol
lowing points:
It is ordered—
That the recruitment of Volunteers
for the various regiments now _ in the
Gold will be conducted accordingly,
1. Details for recruiting service in
the State, will be made of officers of
Pennsylvania regiments in •the field,
whose terms of service expire in 1864.
2. Whon practicable, old regiments
will be returned to the State to bo re
3. The voluggers whn__ehall- be
- efillefa'Tiiilremain under tho control
of the Governor at such camps' or ren
dezvous, and' under such commanders
as he may designate, and until ready

cordance with General Orders No. 75,
of HU.
4. Premiums not exceeding twenty
five dollars for veterans, and fifteen
dollars for new recruits, will be paid

sistant Provost Marshal General.
5. Volunteers furnished by cities or
other localities will be* duly credited
on the draft. fixed -for January 5, 1864;
and also "all such volunteers as may
-have been mustered into the— service
of the United States, since the draft,
the number so credited to be deducted
from.the proportion of the quota as
signed the State under recent call."
Information regarding the quotas of
counties, cities, townships and wards,
can be procured on application to the
respective District Provost Marshals.
6. - Authority will be given to offi
cers detailed for recruiting service
from - regiments in the field, to raise
complete companies of infantry, to be
sent to such regiments in the field as
have less than their proper number of
company organizations.
7. Colored volunteers for the col
ored regiments of Pennsylvania, will

The short time now remaining,
within which to fill the quota of the
State by enlistments, and thus ovoid
the impending draft, admonishes the
loyal citizens of' the importance of pro
viding, by local bounties, the strong
est inducements to volunteers. Au.
nicipalities of other States, by . this

nia the able-bodied men who should
replenish her own regiments. Penn
sylvania, with a deficiency loss, pro
portionately, than any adjacent Com
monwealth, should show, by ,her
promptness and alacrity, now, her a
bility to maintain the high position
she has heretofore, and still occupies
among her sister States, in contribu
ting to suppress this rebellion.

,Br A good joke was perpetrated by
a rebel prioonor captured at Chicka
mauga. The rebel was looking at ono
of our guns, and remarked that he
didn't think that the Yanks would use
them big guns much longer. "Why
not ?" inquired the Feds "Bechuse,"
said ho, "the Confederacy is getting so
narrow, that you'll fire clear over it,
and hit your men on the other side."

asked the youngest apprentice what
his rule of punctuation was. "I sot up
as long as I can hold my breath, 'then
I put in a comma; when I gape I in

As a general rule, the teachers of
our schools do too much, and the echo-.
lars too little. That is, the "pouring
in" method is too generally followed
when there is any method at all.
Classes are called, questions are
asked and answered by , the teacher, the
pupils only being required to repeat
the answer after him, and generally
in concert, so that there are often scho
lars found in the class who n;ii'ver "open
a mouth," and yet, unless an observer
be very careful in judging of the mer
its of the clasS, he will pronounce all
the pupils in the.class as tieing tho
same proficiency. By this method, a
class can be made to appear well to a
visitor, or the Board of Directors, or
the County Superintendent; when they
chance to be present, by simply taking
a lesson which has been previously re
cited. Answers and definitions may
be thus learned, so that the class will
remember them for a short time very
well, but when the class goes 'on to
something new, what iS past is forgot

to have been present. . _
' c ler may take the Geogra
phy class and by pointing out and na
ming, a few times over, the counties,
States, towns, rivers, &c., the class will
be able to follow him all over the maps;
but when the class has not been prac
ticed on the maps fora few days, they
have forgotten almost all that they
thus learned to point out. A Gram
mar class can soon be taught in this
way to give all the principal definitions,
although they may never have seen a
book. But stop the drill and in a few
days the class will have forgotten all
they bad learned on the subject. A
superficial knowledge of History and
many other branches' may bo learned
in this way, but the knowlod r. . ',y' no
sooner gained than it is forgotten.
But, on the other hand lot the Geo
graphy class take a short lesson and
be required to locate the principal
towns, rivers, lakes, &c., without any
aid from the teacher, and they will be
fixed on the memory, from the fact
that they sought out and ascertained
their localities for themselves.' They
will feel as though they had visited
those countries, and a place once visi
ted can never be forgotten. In addi
tion to this if the scholar be required
to make a map of the country about
which ho is studying, it will be so tho
roughly riveted to the memory that
time will not efface it. In this way he
gets - Boos: Knowledge dlreetly, and by
the 'pouring in" method indirectly,
the teacher getting it first and then
makes a transfer to the pupil.
If the pupil has been required by
his own exertion, as much as possible,
to got out and recite his lessons he will
try harder to remember what ho has
gone over, for ho knows what it cost
him, and all will admit that that which
is most appreciated is that which cost
us most. Then he will form habits of
industry and learn to rely on his own
exertions, and not be a mere boody,
drinking in what every one would tell
Demosthenes shut himself up in a
cave that he might betake himself to
his books, and Napoleon used to retire
to the silent groves to read and medi
tate. There is no royal road to learn
itig any more than to wealth. He who
would be in possession of either must
work, and not sit and listen to vain
babblers. Then, the place to learn
thus to work is in the school-room.—
Give oaoh scholar a duty to perform
and have it done precisely as directed.
Take no excuse for delinquency, and
very so - on none will lie asked, - for all
will know that what has been appoin
ted to be done must be done. If this
plan were more fully carried out, the
rising generation would be more cele
brated for industry than past genera
tions, and knowledge would be more
widely diffused.
