THE AMERICAN EAGLE AND THE WAR.—This
matter of fact age is not much given to belief
in omens. As an intelligent cotempotary re
marks, we boast that we have got far beyond
the civilization of the ancieat Greeks and Ro
mans, who regarded every event, the least ex
traordinary in its character, as being an indica- .
tion of good or evil in the future. Yet it has,
no doubt, proven to be true in the experience
of every one, that occasionally there are events
or incidents which appear to have such particu
lar reference to the future, that, unsupersti-
Mous as we claim to be, we feel inclined to
hold them of some account. Of this character
are the recent well authenticated accounts of
the appearance of eagles, the emblems of our
nationality, on different occasions, on the rais
ing of the American Flag. The first one no
ticed appeared on the occasion of raising a flag
at Camp Curtin; the second one during the
performance of a similar ceremony at one of
the military head quarters in Philadelphia.
The third at the departure from home of some
of the northern military companies ; the fourth
at the camp near Jonestown; and the fifth at
Camp Slifer, Chambersburg, on the raising
of the flag presented to the eighth regi
ment by some of the ladies of Chambersburg.
This latter came sailing from the South di
rectly over the flag staff, but at a great height,
and was distinctly seen by hundreds of persons.
Atter paying its respect to the Stars and
Stripes it sailed off North. We wish it to be
distinctly understood that this is no hoax ; for
while we did not see the noble bird ourselves,
nut being present on the occasion he made his
visit, we, nevertheless, have it from a score of
the most reliable witnesses, that this incident
. . .
It is a peculiar circumstance that every eagle
that has been Been thus far, has been flying
North. Perhaps the noble bird, no longer able
to bear the insults and jeers of its southern
friends, has concluded to emigrate to the North,
where there are strong arms to vindicate its
honor, and brave hearts to sustain the Govern
ment of which it is the acknowledged emblem,
or perish in the attempt. Or, perhaps, it may
be intended to cheer our hearts in this dark
hour of our country's history, by the assurance
that as long as freemen raise the Stars and
Stripes as the only banner under which they
can battle, the eagle shall sail in triumph, the
emblem of our country and its free institutions
far aloft in the Heavens, above the reach of all
who would do it harm,
ABOUT forty recruits for one of the Bradford
county companies arrived here at noon to-day,
and joined the company at Camp Curtin.
AN Ammar FLAG, fifteen feet long, was
raised over the poor heuse mill this afternoon,
with appropriate ceremonies.

no longer needed as a shelter for the troops, is

MAY 18th, 1861
A PARTY representing themselves as Missis
sippians were in town to-day, making rather a
suspicious survey of our public buildings. They
made application to get into the arsenal, but
were refused by the guard, whereat they be
came very indignant. They were 'instantly
spotted by the Vigilance Committee, who
watched them closely until their departure In
the 1 o'clock train for Philadelphia.
A Cuiuosrrr.—Mr. M. I. Franklin, Optician, a
few doors north of our office yesterday directed
our attention to the wonderful powers of a
compound microscope in hia establishment. We
subjected it to numerous teats with the most
satisfactory results;but that which pleased us best
and at the same time appeared most remark
able, was when its focus, adjusted over a speck
scarcely as large as the eye of the finest needle,
revealed to view a complete and distinctly
legible copy of the Declaration of Independence,
with its signatures, the whole surrounded by
portraits of the Presidents.
THE CAMP To-Itoariow.—As usual mass will
be celebrated at Camp Curtin to-morrow, and
preaching in the afternoon. Beside these, it is
understood that several of the companies will
attend divine service at one or two of our
To our view, nothing shows more clearly the
character of the Northern soldiery than these
proceedings. The crowds of intelligent-looking
men with serious but determined faces that
Sunday after Sunday have occupied the seats of
our churches, almost reminds us of the
days of the Puritans. The grave and decided
attention they give to the services of the sanc
tuary, involuntarily suggests to us the peaceful
and happy homes they have left—other homes
and sanctuaries where they have filled a place,
and where now on the pleasant summer Sun
days, the prayers of loved ones are going up in
their behalf to the Great Father of all. This
habit of reverence for holy things is something
peculiar to Northern people. It is distilled into
them from youth up, and will never forsake
them. It is men reared amid such influences
as these that compose the Northern army; men
who understand the glorious privileges for
which they are fighting ; men who will go into
battle with a prayer on their lips, fearing God,
but not the face of man.
I have learned from gentlemen in the city of
Harrisburg, that I had refused to furnish the
Lochiel Grays with their rations on the 16th
inst., and on the morning of the 16th inst.,
the day of their departure from Camp Curtin.
As evidence that such has not been the case,
and that all reports of that character are un
founded, I here annex a duplicate provision re
turn signed by W. W. Jennings, Ist Lieuten
ant of the Lochiel Grays, and countersigned by
H. M. Walters, chief clerk of the Commissary
Department and 5. B. Clow, ration clerk of
same department. And further ; Captain
McCormick, the First Lieutenant, and a num
ber of his Company expressed their regret that
they had not time to contradict the current re •
ports through the press.

ABOUT THE Taurn.—The Louisville Journal
tells a good story of Vice President Breckinridge.
He was making a speech at Bowling Green, the
other day, in which he assailed the Republi
cans, and drew a glowing picture of the evils
of the country. Pausing a moment, he then
exclaimed, " And who is guilty of bringing
about this terrible condition of affairs ?" This
interrogatory was answered by three of the
most respectable citizens present, who rose and
said: " Warren County charges you with it I"

IMPORTANT FROM ST. LOUIS.
Protection of Union Men—Occupation of Potosi
Capture of Secessionists—A Rebel Cavalry Corn
Several Union men having been driven from
Potosi, on the line of tde Iron Atountain Rail
road. A detachment .of volunteers, under the
command of Captain Cole, was sent down on
Tuesday night, to protect the loyal citizens of
that section. Captain Cole reached Potosi at
three o'clock in the morning, and surrounded
the town with a chain of sentinels, and shortly
after daylight about one hundred and fifty citi
zens were taken prisoners. They were formed
into line, and the Union men being recognized,
were released. About fifty of the Secessionists
were liberated on parole, and nine of the lead
ers brought to the city as prisoners of war.
Thirteen Union families arrived here last
night, having been driven from different towns

raised to receive a secession flag. Another
prominent secessionist was arrested there, and
still another at Victoria, making twelve in all
now in the arsenal.
