LETTER FROM CAMP CROSSMAN.
Camp Grossman, Oct. 14, 1801.
Metm, Mditom Perhaps aorue of our
Clearfield friends would like to harome
thing about Camp Crosstnah, near Hun
tingdon, and How the Clearfiold boys are
enjoying themselves by thi time. Camp
Grossman is situated about three miles
from the town of Huntingdon, and is a
very beautiful locution, and in the midst
of a rich nnd well cultivated part of the
country," It i a .bout two miles from the
Warm Springs, which is great place of
8iimaicr rosort and amusement, as well as
CumpCrossman, which is visited by agre.it
number ladies and gentlemen not only
from this place but elsewhere and their
presence always cheers the soldier and
makes his countenance much brighter,
(especially when the ladies inaks their
appearance.) We nrrived here about 12
o'clock, being exposed from ubnutfiwiin
morning to a drenching raiti, but after wo
ai rived wo were escorted to the court
house by Col. Murray, where we found the
same well heatod by his order. After
changing our wet garments for more com
fortable ones, wo wore taken to thu hotel
and there partook of (lie refreshments
which we wore all in rruch need of. We
quartered jti the court liouso uulil Wed
nesday, when we got orders to march to
Camp, and as the atari and stripes wafted
in the breeo ou could hear the loud ac
clamation, "lojig may it ave succass to
the brave Clearfield boys." When we ar

and make some acquaintances with the

with whom we expect to spend our next
three years as companions and friends.
We found the regiment, or rather compa

From the date of our arrival there seemed
a new element at work. Discipline was
tightened up on all sides, and the) compa
nies and parts of regiments, lound that
soldiering was not all play, Col. Murray
had takm command of the post and at
once commenced reforms, no less for the

CLEARFIELD, PA. WEDNESDAY, OCT. 23, (8GI.
A Frightful Scene.
The London papers contain accounts of
an exhibition at Cremotne, on Monday
evening the 12lh ultimo. A female Won -
dm liad been encacod to cross the Tli'ime , t,
, bb nimes ,tor 0f tne Fayette Countv Democrat on cht
on a tight rone from the carden It V. w i ' , , iJumc ougui

he height of the rope from the wator va
ried from fifty to one hundred feet. Im
mense crowds had collected to witness the
feat, and the artiste when he made her
appearance was greeted with loud bursts
of applause. Two-thirds of tho distance
had been accomplished with apparent
ease und certainty, when the performer
stopped to rest on one of tho main sup
ports of the rope. She remained so long
that apprehensions of a contreU-mpts began
to spread. Nor were they groundless, for
attempts were inude by attendants on
shore and in boats to tighten the remain
ing six or seven hundred foyt of rope.
For a very great part of this formidable
way, no guy-ropes were to be wen. .There
were reports, or the ropes having been cut
in the course of tho preceding tight for
the sak-o of the weight by which tho main
cord was or should havo been made steady.
On the othei hand, it wis alleged that
those weights or guys had never been put
After sitting a wearisome length of time
on the narrow ledge on the summit of the
timber support, the performer essayed ti
advance. .She very soon found the task
too dangerous, and backed to her awk
ward resting p'.ace. Tho time from her
first arrival at this point to her finally
quitting it was full three quarters tf an
hour. Aain the female Biondin set forth,
and at this tirife made so much progress,
that when she hesitated for the second
tiniA iL liiiil iiunmnn twvtelir i... :i.t rl
her to recede. This she nevertheless at -
tempted to do under the greatest ditliculs
ties. Tho rope swayed like a garden
swing, d ies were raised for a line, and
when one was brought efforts were made
to throw itotei the cord on which the
poor creature endeavored to maintain Ler
The excitement became general ar.d
toon grew into alarm. For a while manv
pacified their fears with a half suspieicn
that the danger was only acted, but its
reality soon became upparent. Twilight
was deepening, and in a little time she
would be unable to tee the rope. Having
stood fol ten minutes or longer, undecided
whether to attempt a retreat or an ad
wince, the femalo Biondin sat down ou
the rope, and balanced hor pole acioss hor
knees. Renewed efforts were may to
throw cords over the main ropes, but with
out success. A t lenth an outcry was made
that she was going to fall. At that time
)lio relinquished her pole, which came
splashing down among the boats below.
In another she was clinging by her hands,
now to the ''tight" rope, now to a couple
of weights, and new to the cords by which
a part of tho rope was held in perfect
steadiness. The couragodisplnyed by her
at this timo was truly admirable. Des
cending by the grasp of a three quarter
inch cord, or mere whale-line, in fact, this
djiring imitator of the "Hero of Niagara"
renched in safety a boat that had been
rowed to her reFcue. On reaching the
boat she was loudly eheered, and received
quite an ovation on her retur.ii to the gar
dens, where she lamented with tears her
not having completed a task which she
felt perfectly competent to perform- Her
hands, it is stated, wero severely cut by
the line which had a Horded her the means
ol escape. -

pnssengers of the (ircat Eastern from
tvhich Wo gather tho following facts ;
First, the Great Eastern was sent to sea,
litterally "prepared for nothing."' .Sec
ond, the storm was not a furious one.and
it is cn record that the Fer-ia and anoth
er ocean steaurer which were exposed to
it reached this country without damage nr
delav. Third, the articles in the vessel
fiom anchors and oiNtanks to tables and
foot-stools, weie iWiplly unfastened.
Fourth, the Great Eastern rvllk-d fearfully,
even in a moderate sea having no lullasl,
and only two oi three hundred tons of
cargo. Fifth, the pa Idles were so wrak
that they were soon beaten to pieces.
Sixth, the baggag6 wt.s "smashed to bits,"
because it was laid dow n in one of the
compartments, without being secured and
stored, mid wns dashed firm fide to side
in a foot of water, until it was nil ground
up into fragments. Seventh : ever thing
in tuo aloons and dining-rooms were al
so reduced to a debrinot the character.
Eighth: the safety of tho vessel va ow
ing, under God, to .Mr. Towle, an Amer
ican engineer, and ono of tho passengers,
who contrived and fitted up a steeringap
paratus j but the captain nnd his head en
gineer endeavored to deprive Mr. Totvlo
of tho credit of his skill and readiness,
and the English portion of the passengers
sided with tlio captain! Lastly, "fifty-1
two cases oi iracture occurred, besides
several broken legs, arms, a collar-bone,
It is scarcely probable, whoever else
may venture to sea in that gigantic fail
ure, the Great Eastern', that any rational
American will run tho rifk. To do so
would look like templing Providence.
