    ferred to North Carolina, when Gen
eral Foster placed him in command
of his old brigade again, which he re
tained, with an occasional change
of Regiment, until nearly the end of
his term of service. His command
was transferred to South Carolina, in
January, 1863, with the army that
was intended to attack Charleston.—
Ho commanded a brigade, or division,
in the subsequent operations before
that city. He was with General
Terry in the action on James Island,
July 16th ; he was next placed in
command of the important post of
Folly Island ; thence transferred to
Morris Island, and assisted in the
siege operations against Wagner and
Sumter. His brigade was one of the
two selected by General Terry to
make the first assault on Fort Wag
ner, the 7th of September. From
the Bth of January until the 25th of
April, 1864, Colonel Davis was in
command of the operations on Morris
Island against Charleston, the only
place in the department where active
hostilities were constantly carried
on. This was at a time when there
were eleven general officers in the de
partment. The fact that Colonel
Davis was entrusted with the com
mand of honor, gives evidence
of the great confidence his superior
reposed in him. From Morris Island
he was transferred to the command
of the important District of Hilton
Head, extending from Saint Helena
sound, to and including, Fort Pulaski,
at the mouth of the Savannah river,
a distance of sixty miles. When a
combined attack was made on
Charleston, in July, 1864, Colonel
Davis commanded the first brigade
of Hatche's division. He led the ad
vance up Johns' Island to within
sight of the city. On the morning
of the sth, while - examining with a
glass, a rebel battery that was play
ing upon his men, he was struck on
the right hand by a shell, which
carried away the fingers and tore the
hand terribly. Of course he is made
a 'cripple for life. After be had so far
recovered from his wound as to be
able to do light duty, he was made
President of a general court martial,
in Philadelphia, where be remained
until he was mustered out of service,
the first of October, 1864.
Colonel Davis was never promoted,
the reason of which the War Depart
ment can give. He entered the ser
vice with more knowledge of, and ex
- perienoe in, military matter* than
ninety-nine out of every hundred of
ficers in the 'volunteer army. He has
in his possession the very highest tes
timonials from his superior officers,
and was frequently recommended for
promotion. He was honorably men
tioned in orders for his conduct at
Fair Oaks. After the fall of Wagner
and Sumter, the Adjutant General of
the army wrote to General Gillmore,
and requested him to report the
names of the officers of his corps who
deserved promotion. In the reply
the name of Colonel Davis stands
number two, but there it ended.—
The others, we believe were all pro
moted. Four out of five of the regi

ors, were made enerals. We are

promote Colonel Davis. The Popu

Our candidate for Surveyor Gen
eral, Col. John P. Linton, is a young
man of about thirty-three years, a
native of Cambria county, a pure pa
triot, an honest, upright man, and a
splendid representative of the incor
ruptible mountain Democracy. lie
is the son of Robert P. Linton, at
various times Sheriff of the county,
and grandson of Peter Levengood,
who, many years ago, was Ca
nal Commissioner of the Common
wealth. By profession, Col. Linton
was lawyer, and before the war ho
was fast making his way to eminence
at the county bars. In general in
telligence he is far above the aver
age, and professionally he is well
known among the legal fraternity
for his acquirements. He was a stu
dent of Jefferson College, and subse
quently studied law with and became
the law partner of Hon. Cyrus L.
Pershing. This latter fact is of it
self a guarantee for his intelligence
and ability.
When, in 1861, the war was
brought upon the country, ho was a
lieutenant in a holiday volunteer.
company. Mainly through his ef
forts the organization was retained,
the company recruited to the max
imum number, and, upon the decli
nation of other officers, he was unan
imously proclaimed captain: With
his company he faithfully served du
ring the three months' campaign.
At the termination of the three
months' campaign, Cols. Linton,
Campbell and M'Dermott at once re
cruited a regiment, (the 54th,)
and the officers were soon after, in
August, 1861, commissioned as fol
lows: Colonel, Jacob M. Campbell;
(Republican candidate for Surveyor
General ;) Lieutenant Colonel, Ber
nard McDermott; (one of the sol
diers of the war with Mexico ;) Ma
jor, John P. Linton. Subsequently
Col. M'Dermott resigned on account
of ill-health, which, on February Ist,
1863, advanced Major Linton to the
position of Lieutenant-Colonel.
The regiment was immediately
assigned to duty along the Balti.
more & Ohio Railroad. During the
whole of the early period of the war,
when the mouth of the Shenandoah
Valley was the scene of constant a
larms and raids, the 64th Regiment
was stretched as a cordon of protec-
tion to the lower tier of Pennsylva
nia counties. We have not time nor
space in this article to follow the-reg.
iment through its later history ; this
will afford matter. for subsequent ar
ticles. It is sufficient to say that af
ter about two years of detached ser
vice, the regiment was' ordered to
take part in the active operations up
the Valley. During most of this lat
er and more active period of service,
Col. Campbell was away from the
regiment—in temporary command of
a division or a brigade, it is stated—
so that Col. Linton had the honor of
leading the 54th in the battles of
Newmarket and Piedmont. And
moot bravely and gallantly he led his
regiment on those disastrous fields.—
In both those battles he was severe
ly wounded, bat although for a time
compelled to go home for treatment,
he scarcely remained long enough
from his post to fully recover—so
wedded was he to his regiment, his
duty and the serious work required
of him.
When the 54th was subsequenty
ordered to the front, before Peters•
burg, Col. Linton, we believe, still re
tained direct command, and again led
his men in those hard-fought engage.

that gallant old regiment. -Hereaf

der in battle.
Col. Linton is a candidate of whom
the Democracy may well feel proud.
There is not positively a speck or flaw
in his history or character. His
claims do not rest alone upon his mili
tary services. He is a just man—an
honest, an honorable and true man.
He could not evade a duty if he would
and he would not if he could. He
never compromises with wrong, and
in the same manner that be performs
his own duty he is exacting upon oth-
ers subject tb his' - teobtroll But,
though firm and unyielding where
right and honor are concerned, he is
one of the most temperate, genial and
agreeable of men in all the social re
lations. Should he be elected, the peo
ple can rely upon having secured an
officer who will be an ornament and
gain to the State—one whom neither
party nor personal nor family friend
ship, can swerve from duty.

and that they gave open "aid and

Harrisburg papers state that early on
Tuesday morning, a young lady nam•
ed Sarah Schwarm was drowned in
he canal, at the foot of Second street,
n that city. She was employed in
the family of Mr. J. S. Springer, who
resides near Hummelstown, and some
ten miles from Harrisburg. At a
very early hour in . the morning, she,
company with some of the members
of the family left home, in a wagon,
to come to the city, and as they were
crossing the canal bridge, on Second
street, Sarah attempted to leave one
seat in the wagon, and occupy anoth
er. While in the act of doing so, she
accidently fell from the wagon, and,
it is supposed, was stunned by the
fall, as in attempting to rise she roll
ed off of the side of the bridge, and
disappeared in the water, which is
very deep, at that point.
A number of men were immediate-
ly engaged by Mr. Springer, to search
for the body, by diving, and a seine
was used, but up to the time of writ.
ing this the unfortunate girl bad not
been found.
LATER—Probable Case of Suicide
The Bodyfeund.—Since the above was
put in type, the body of Sarah
Schwarin has been recovered. It was
found some fifty yards below the
bridge. Further particulars have
been learned, from which it seems
highly probable that the girl commit.
ted suicide. It appears that some
time ago she gave birth to, an illegiti•
mate child, the father of which refus
ed to marry her. ' She became de
spondent inconsequence'of her be
trayal, and occasionally threatened
self-destruction, on account of her
loss of character. This morning she
and Mrs. Springer occupied the mar
ket Wagon, and when upon the canal
bridge Sarah requested that the team
might be stopped, as Mae desired to
exchange seats. .For this purpose,
as was supposed, she jumped out of
the wagon, and instead of. seeing her
re-enter the wagon, Mrs. S. heard a
plunge in the canal. Mrs. S. called
her but received no reply. Sarah did
not reappear, and was not again seen
until the lifelees body was taken from
the water, late in the afternoon. If
her death was one of aelf.destruction,
her premature end is chargeable to
her seducer, and although ,he may
not be punished here, he cannot be
considered innocent of the murder
of Sarah Schwarm. _

'Brick Pomeroy of the La Cross
Democrat, has the following item con
cerning a couple of his abolition con
temporaries. He says: “The press
and type on which the Fon du Lae
Commonwealth, a Republican paper,
is printed, was stolen from a print
ing office at Columbia, Tennessee, by
its present user, the editor of the
Commonwealth. There is a prospect
of the 'loyal' confiscationist coming
to grief over it. A Republican print
ing office in this city has lately re
ceived aiot of second-hand type won
down South when, the owner, was a
way. We admire a fighting rebel
more than a thieving patriot, and are
not afraid to say: so. If:these South
ern printing office stealers could have
stolen a few brains at the same time
they would have been better off than
now. A pity this cruel war is over.
