HARRISBURG, PA.
Thursday Morning, August 8, 1881.
CONDLTION OF THE REGULAR ARMY.
The regular army of the United States at
this date consists of about twenty-two thousand
men. Of the old regular regiments, many have
been decimated by various causes. Over two
thousand five hundred men were in Texas, of
whom hardly one-half have returned or are
available for active duty in the loyal States.—
Of those in New Mexico and California several
compel:des have suffered Severely from desertion,
owing to the treachery of their officers. It is
estimated that a variety of causes diminished
the old army—which consisted of some eight
een thousand rank and file to fourteen thou
sand; leaving a deficiency of four thousand,
which extraordinary recruiting has to supply.—
No means hays been left unemployed to' make
good the shortcoming, so far, as regards the
men, but some inexperienced officers have been
appointed in the regular force as well as in the
volunteer service. A colonel of the United
States army, who served at Stone Bridge, says
that the regular soldiers will not fight under in
competent officers, but will become dishearten
ed. The great exertions made to enlist recruits
are supposed to have so far exceeded the current
wants of the line so as to make the regulars
now number twenty-two thousand—four thou
sand in excess of the old figures.
WE LUNN MOH WASHINGTON that since the
late bats that have resulted in a manner die
astrousi our arms, a large number of officers
have resigned,while several who have heretofore
aspired to command are now willing to enter
the ranks to be commanded. The country and
the army may be congratulated on this circum
stance: It is not likely that many really valua
ble officers will leave the service ; and the va
cancies occasioned by those who in the late ac
tion discovered their incapacity for the duties of
their stations, can now be filled by the chief of
the army with men who have been properly
trained, and in whose ability, as leaders, our
soldiers may have ready confidence. If the bat
tle of Stone Bridge weeds the army of incompe
tent officers, it will do the country and the
cause of the Union a service for which we may
hold it in grateful remembrance. And that it
is having this effect to a greater extent than
was suspected, is a fact we learn from the best
authority. Let Generals Scott and McClellan
now see to it that capable and experienced men
are put in the places made vacant by resigna
tion, and our soldiers will go into battle here
after with that confidence which arises from the
possession of able leaders, and which can never
exist while men have reason to suspect that
their superiors are superiors only in name and
not in knowledge, experience or conduct.
A CAucus OF TRAZIORB in the Maryland Legis , .
lature have resolved to call a Convention to as
semble in Baltimore on Tuesday, Sept. 10, "for
the purpose of devising means to oppose the
war policy of the Federal Adminsstration."—
These traitors proclaim that they desire to vin
dicate the right of Maryland to exercise all
and every authority within her own limits, and
her power to prevent "prowling hordes of ruf
fian soldiers from passing over their territory to
attack the rights and the interests of the people
of other Commonwealths." Of course the
Convention is called for treasonable purposes.
But it is a matter of surprise to many sensible
loyal men why such villains are allowed to con
coct and advocate their treason under the eye
and within the hearing of the authorities at
Washington. The traitors of Maryland are
doing more damage to the cause of the Union,
than the traitors of South Carolina. They fur
nish the rebel leaders with information, and
supply their followers with food. They are
spies on the Government, news-gatherers in our
camps, and tale bearers between ourselves and
the common enemy. A rebuke to the Mary
land traitors cannot be much longer postponed.
BRIGADUR GENERAL PIERCE is out in the Bos
ton papers with a statement in regard to the
Big Bethel fight, in which he asserts that he
acted under explicit orders, but that the plan of
attack and orders accompanying it betrayed a
want of knowledge of the enemy's position and
numbers ; that his command was composed of
raw recruits with only twenty rounds of ammu
nition, his small artillery force having only
twelve rounds, hardly sufficient for five minutes
fire ; that the cause of going into friendly regi
ments was owing to the neglect of General But
ler to notify the detachment which joined him
from Newport News to wear or recognise the
white badge worn on the arm. General P. in
conclusion says :
"After the battle had taken place, and public
inion had fastened on me the opprobrium of
defeat, I applied for a court of inquiry, that
to might be set aright and the blame, if
any, rest on the proper officer. In
my application, nay, my demand, I
one reply—that a court of inquiry
Iker too much that would injure
g fox.

TIM MILITARY CommissioNnits created for the
examination of newly appointed officers in the
army, have resolved that the following requisi
tions should form a basis of the standard of
qualification before an officer can be entitled to
hold a commission : Of company officers, cap
tains and lieutenants, they should be able to
answer, orally and correctly, all questions on
the manner of instructing recruits, the manual
of arms, the school of the soldier, the position
of commissioned and non-commissioned officers
in line, and possess a knowledge of battalion
movements. Tne field officers to ba able to
understand all that is required from the com
pany officers, and, in addition thereto, evolu
tions of the line, the proper conjuncture and
the circumstances under which to use field ar
tillery, the elements of military engineering,
and such other collateral questions as the ex
aminers propose.
Wirrits PREVIOUS to the battle of Bull Run, we
were daily treated by the Washington corres
pondents to narratives from a "reliable gentle
man," just from Manassas or Richmond, to
whom Beauregard and Davis had confided most
of their secrets. "The reliable gentleman" has
not been heard of for the last few days. But
his place is filled by the "escaped prisoner"
just from the hospital at Centrffille or Manua
as. Every day he 'turns up.
Tits Pittsburg Gazette says that when General
Garnett was killed by our troops in western
Virginia, his body was taken care of, embalm
ed and sent home to his friends; but when Colo
nel Cameron was killed by the rebels the men
that were sent atter his body were imprisoned.
"Cast not your pearls before swine, lest they
turn again and rend you."

THE TAX FOR WAR PURPOSES.
A bill has passed both houses of Congress,
has been signed by the President, and is now a
law, taxing certain incomes and properties, for
the purpose of raising $20,000,000 to aid in de
fraying the expenses of suppressing the rebellion
at the south which aims at subverting the au
thority of the government and destroying the
liberty of the people. The bill contains seven
ty-six sections, and is necessarily very long.
Carriages are to be taxed from one to fifty dol
lars each, as they are valued. Spiiituous liquors
are to be taxed five, and fermented liquors two
cents per gallon, or sixty cents per barrel.
When the latter contains over thirty gallons,
the tax to be paid by the distiller, who is re
quired to keep a sworn record of the number of
gallons manufactured. A drawback is allowed
in cases where such taxed liquors may subse
quently be exported.
We give In frill some of the principal sections
of the bill.

BULL RUN, AS SEEN B F A SO 071 CARO
LEVAL%
The war correspondent of the Charleston
Mercury thus describes the battle of Bull Run :
Suddenly an order comes, borne, I believe
by General McGowan, for the second and eighth
Palmetto regiments to hasten to the assistance
of the left wing. Couriers are despatched to
Captain Perryman, out scouting, and Captain
Rhett, on picket guard, to march across the
fields to the left, and join their regiment, the
second, which is on the march, to aid the 1, ft
wing. This 'regiment, to which was attached
Kemper's battery, followed by the se each,
Col. Cash, hurried to the scene of action. It
was met along the way by numbers of the
wounded, dying and retiring, who declared the
day had gone against us; that Sloan's regi
ment, the fourth, were cut to pieces ; that
Hampton's Legion, coming to the rescue, and
the Louisiana battalion, were annihilated ; that
General Bee and Colonel Hampton were mor•
tally wounded, and Colonel Ben Johnson kill
ed ; and that the Confederate forces were out
flanked and routed, and the day lost. This
was the unvarying tenor of the words that
greeted us from the wounded and dying, and
the fugitives who met us during the last mile
of our approach to the field of battle. To the
sharp cry of the officers of the second regiment,
"On, men, on these fellows are whipped, and
think everybody else is," the troops responded
nobly, and closing up their columns, marched
rapidly and boldly forward.
The fast flying cannon shot now cut down
several of our number before we got sight of
the foe. Presently they became visible, with
banners insolently flaunting, and driving before
theni the remains of our shattered forces. But
the second, undaunted by the sight, deployed
column, and, with a shout, charged up the hill
at the double quick. The Yankees could not
stand the shock, and fell back into a wdod on
the West of the hill, pouring into us a galling
fire. Driving through this wood, they again
formed on a brigade of their men in a field be
yond, and for half an hour a severe struggle
took place between this regiment, with Kemp
er's Battery attached, unsupported, and an im
mense force of United States troops. We poured
in a steady and deadly fire upon their ranks.
While the battle raged the eighth South Caro
lina regiment came up, and Col. Cash, pointing
to the enemy, says "Col. Kershaw, are those
the d—d scoundrels that you wish driven off
the field ? I'll do it in five minutes, by God!"
Yes, Colonel, says Kershaw, "form on our left,
and do it if you can." In a few moments the
eighth got close up on the left, and poured in a
murderous fire, under which the enemy reeled
and broke.

A DEFAULTER DISMISSED,
W49IIINGTON, Aug. 7.
The President has appointed IL G. Wells, of
Michigan, as minister resident to Honduras.
General Army order No. 46, which prohibits
volunteers who do not speak the English lan
guage from being mustered into service, is now
officially explained, as not intended to apply
to regiments or companies of foreign nationali
ty in which the men and officers speak the
same tongue, but to prevent the enlistment
into regiments or companies whose officers
speak the Rnliah language only of men, not
understanding it, and to officers whose language
they do understand. •
The twenty-ninth section of the act approved
July, 1838, granting three months extra pay,
in lieu of a bounty to soldiers who may re-enlist,
and the third section of the act approved June,
1860, granting a bounty equal to the transpor
tation from New York, to soldiers who may re
enlist at distant stations, having been repealed
by the act approved August 3d, 1881, in future
no such bounty will be paid.
Hereafter when volunteers are to be mustered
into the service of the United States, they will
atthe same time be minutely examined by the
surgeon and assistant surgeon of the regiment,
to ascertain whether they have the physical
qualifications necessary for the military service.
Lieut. Walter H. Stevens, of the corps of en

Ww=saTos, August 7
Prince Napoleon left Washington on a visit to
Mount Vernon, but not reaching the French
Minister's residence up to midnight, a report
prevailed that he had been captured by the Se
cessionists. It now appears that on returning
'withthis city at ten o'clock he stopped to dine
with the French Secretary of Legation. The
party met with no material stoppages on the
way, and the only damage sustained was to
two of the horses who were seriously injured by
sun stroke.

which was sunk off Char

Lawrence, thinking her to be a merchant vessel,
when the St. Lawrence gave her a broadside
which sunk the pirate. Five of her crew lost

pen. Butler returned to Old Point this morn

creased.
The General has spent the afternoon at New

shells.
Hampton will be re-occupied on the arrival
of the first regiment from the North.
The sailing frigate Savannah is being towed
up the road and will proceed to Newport News
to relieve the Dale, now ordered to sea.
The crew of the bark Linwood, New York,
thirteen in number, have just arrived on the
Quaker city. The ark was wrecked on Cape
Hatteras. They were picked up off Cape Henry.
The Quaker city picked up this morning,
near the capes, a small boat containing ten
ship masters and seamen who had escaped from
Fort Oregon, North Carolina. They give some
startling intelligence of the doings on the North
Carolina coast. At Hatteras inlet there are three
steamers and a pilot boat privateer. One of
them, the Gordon, run the blockade at Carolina
and of the whole coast up to Hatteras inlet, ten
days ago, since which time she has captured
the brig Wm. H. McGilnery, of Bangor, from
Cardinas, with molasses,
and the schooner Pro
tector, from Cuba, with fruit. The names of
the privateers are "The Gordon" and "The
Coffee," a side-wheel steamer, formerly running
between Old Point and Norfolk, the steamer
"Marion," formerly a Norfolk pilot boat. All
of them are armed with rifled cannon. Those
from Norfolk were taken by the canal to Al
bermarle Sound.
Newborn, North Carolina, - is the head quarters
of these pirates. Ten gun boats are being col
lected and mounted at Norfolk to be taken
down the canal. Crews for them are being
shipped at Newborn.
The bark Glen, of Portland, with Government
coal, was captured a week ago and taken into
Beaufort, North Carolina. The refugees state
that the Confederates scarcely regard the coast
as blockaded at all, and consider the Quaker
City the only vessel doing any efficient service
against them. During all this time several gun
boats have been quietly anchored at Old Point.
The frigate W abash has arrived from off
Charleston for coal and water, having been re
lieved by the Roanoke. She recaptured the
schooner Mary Alice, of New York, which bad
been taken by the piratical schooner Dixie.

bash. She also took the brig Sarah Star, bound
from Wilmington to Liverpool, with turpentine
and rosin, and sailing under English colors.

the gun boat Seminole but did little damage.
