JG7G. 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 rived at Camp OosBnian ive found some nisio hundred of our neighbors of Clair, Huntingdon, Clearfield asxl other adjoin ing uounties, and from three to four hun dren Philadelphians. Our boys went at once into the country cmp,. being part of Col. Murriy's regi merit and a little suspicions of tho Fhila delphiiuis, who had acquired the name of the Ir.'hh Brigade, hut after all a pretty decent set of fellows. If they did come from the cilyf When we got to camp onr first work, of course, was to prepare oiir quar ters fur sleeping. Wo vre nt one fur. niched by Col. Murray's orders, through the Quartermaster of the Bi ig tue, I. Mitchell, with touts and all necessary clothing, blankets . pans, plates, camp equipage, rii short, of all sui ts, nnd slept the Hist night in the tented field as com fortable as circumstances would permit.--On. the day afuv, wo began to look around and make some acquaintances with the others of the lirjgadtj encamped ubuul us, with whom we expect to spend our next three years as companions and friends. We found the regiment, or rather compa nies for ihere vwis not one full regiment tlroiijrji men enough to :nako the greati er pari or two, composed in the main of intelligent Cue young fellows, sons of far mers of the vicinity j and the l'hiladcl. phiu boys, in Kpite of having been called I the Irish Brigade, as jovial, freo hearted set of follows as we could expect to find. 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 lenelil of the service and the people alout the town than the soldiers themselves. Order wns tit onoe restored --the pass system was put in strict force ami a pa trol detailed to town to see thai order was observed, and evorybody in town c imp and country has causo to rejoice ai the selection maelo Ly Oen.

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 u, , J f. , ." ,8to bo hun nJ thereupon he recom- ; . : " 1 " lD . e.r 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 up. 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 balance. 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. - The Oheatest Well Yit.

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.

Lastly, "fifty-1 two cases oi iracture occurred, besides several broken legs, arms, a collar-bone, wrist, Ac.
