This brave and accomplished officer, who
n joys the confidence of the people at large
in an eminent degree, it appears has just
cause for complaint at the manner in which
he has been treated, and it is to be hoped
President Lincoln will take his case into
his own hands and give him force sufficient
to enter the field against the rebels. It
has been stated, and thus far not denied,
that troops expressly raised for him were
assigned to other commands—that his
troops were poorly supplied and without
pay for several months—that although hol
ding the rank o? a Major General he bare
ly commands a division, and that he has
been placed under officers of less grade than
himself, without the sanction of the Pres
ident, who alone has that power. In a let
ter recently written to Philadelphia, he ad
verts to some of these things, and then
I ha?e not resigned, and I hope the Govern
ment will be just enough to save me from this
last step. But I have asked to be relieved
from present command, and to be placed
in aposition wherein I can makemyself useful,
if my well founded and, as I believe, necessa
ry complaints cannot find redress. These
complaints have, in some way, reached the
public, and are known to you. You may
judge of them yourself.

Fine dresses arc not always marks of gen

Bather scaly —Gathering chestnuts by

Profanity—A hook without bait, with

What will a peck of coal, multiplied by

The two greatest evils to society in the

The Rebels have again invaded Penasyl
▼ania and Maryland ! A large body of
Stuart's Cavalry crossing the Potomac some
where near Hancock, above the right wing
of the Army of the Potomac, passed through
Maryland and occupied Merc6rsburg, Penn
sylvania, on Friday morning. That night
their advance, consisting of cavalry with a
few pieces of artillery, were in Chambers
burg, which is in the rear of Hagerstown
and also of our army at Williamsport. Their
whole force is estimated at about 2000
strong. Although well supplied with mus
kets and ammunition, Chambersburg was
surrendered without even an attempt at de
fence. They occupied it that night and
Saturday morning, when having supplied
themselves with such articles as were need
ed, left. They entered a shoe store and took
about two hundred dollars worth of goods,
and entered private houses just as they
pleased. The cashier of the bank was held
as a prisoner during Friday night and com
pelled to open the vaults of the bank, but
the bank officers had been more vigilant
than others and removed all the valuables—
they had to leave the premises without plun
der. In addition to this some five hundred
horses were stolen from the citizens, and
before they left all the property of the Cum
berland Valley railroad was destroyed by
fire, consisting of the machine shops, a
large house used for the ticket, telegraph
and other offices of the company, and also
as the residence of the Superintendent,
Mr. Lull. The warehouses of Messrs. Wun
derlich A Meeds were also destroyed. In
these buildings was stored a largeamount of
ammunition, captured from the rebels a
short time before the battle near Sharpsbura.
While the fire was raging the shells explo
ded and flew through the town, but we
heard of no accidents by them. The dam
age done to the citizens and Cumberland
Valley Railroad, must amount to a large

The following despatch has been received
at the war Department :
I have already advised you of the move
ments of the army under my command from
Louisville. More or less skirmishing has oc
curred daily with the enemy's cavalry since
then. It was supposed the enemy would give
battle at Bardstown. My troops reached that
point on the 4th, driving out the enemy's rear
guard of cavalry and artillery. The main
body moved towards Springfield, whither pur
suit was continued. The centre corps, under
Gen. Gilbert, moved on the direct road from
Springfield to Perryville, and arrived on the
7th instant, within two miles of the town, where
the enemy was found to be in force. The left
Column, under Gen. M'Coik, caine upon the
Maxville road about 10 o'clock yesterday, the
Bth. It was ordered in position to attack, and
a strong reconnoissancc directed at 4 o'clock.
I received a request from Gen. M'Cook for rein
forcements, and learned that the left had been
seriously engaged for several hours, and that
the right and left of that corps wor-o being turn
ed and severely pressed. Reinforcements
were immediately sent forward from the cen
tre; orders were also sent to the right column,
under Gen. Crittenden, which was advancing
by the Lebanon road to push forward and at
tack the enemy's left, but it was impossible for
it to get into position in time to produce any
decisive results. The action con tinued till dark;
fighting also occurred in the center; the enemy
wasevery where repulsed, hutnot without 9ome
momentary advantages on the left; the several
corps were put in position during the night
and moved to attack at six o'clock this mom
ing. Some skirmishing occurred with the
enemy's rear guard; the rnaiu body has fallen
back in the direotion of Ilarrodsburg.
I have no accurate report of our loss yet, and
is probably pretty heavy, including valuable
officers. General Jackson and Terrill, I regret
to say. are among the number of killed.

General Order 163. —The attention of
the officers and soldiers of the Army of the
Potomac is called to General Orders No.
139, War Department, September 24,1862,
publishing to the Army the President's
proclamation of September 22. A procla
mation of such grave moment to the nation,
officially communicated to the Army, affords
to the General Commanding an opportuni
ty of defiuing specifically to the officers and
soldiers under his command the relation
borne by all persons in the military service
of the United States towards the civil au
thorities of the Government.
The Constitution coDfidos to the civil au
thorities, legislative, judicial, and Execu
tive, the power and duty of nr king, ex
pounding and executing the Federal laws.
Armed forces are raised and supported sim
ply to sustain the civil authorities, and are
to be held in strict subordination thereto in
all respects. This fundamental law of our
Republican institutions, and should be
thoroughly understood and observed by
every soldier.
The principles upon which and the ob
jects for which armies shall be employed
in suppressing rebellion, must be determin
ed and declared by the civil authorities,
and the Chief Executive, who is charged
with the administration of the national af
fairs, is the proper and only source through
which the views and orders of the Govern
ment can be made known to the armies of
the nation.
Discuss:*,.* by officers and soldiers con
cerning public measures, determined upon
and declared by- the Gorornment, when
carried beyond the ordinary, temperate and
respectful expression of opinion, tend
greatly to impair and destroy the discipline
and efficiency of the troops by substituting
the spirit of political faction, for the firm,
steady and earnest support of the authority
of the Government, which is the highest
duty of the American soldier. The reme
dy for political errors, if any are committed,
is to be found only in the action of tie
people at the polls.
In thus calling the attention of this ar
my to the true relation between the soldier
and the Government, the General Com
manding merely adverts to an evil against
which it has been thought advisable during
our whole history to guard the armies of the
Republic; and in so doing will not be con
sidered by any right minded person as cast
ing any reflection upon that loyalty and
good conduct which has been so fully illus
trated upon so many battle-fields.
In carrying out all measures of public
policy this army will of course he guided
by the same rules of mercy and christiani
ty that have ever controlled its conduct to
ward the defenceless.

Lieut. Col., Aid de-Camp and A. A. A. G.
