Friday Afternoon, August 9, 1861.
When the Fourth Pennsylvania regiment ar
rived in Harrisburg, immediately after the bat:
tie of Bull Run, the people and the press of the
state capital naturally inquired how this regi
ment could be in their midst, while the boom
ing of cannon and the flash of musketry had
scarcely died away on the road to Manassas.
These inquiries led to charges of cowardice, and
these charges aroused the ire of the men of the
Fourth, who beseiged our office, threatened us
with personal violence, and went so far as to
declare that they would raze the city to its
foundation, if like intimations were repeated in
regard to their valor in arms or devotion to
their country in the hour of danger.
On this subject, we have higher authority
than any we could heretofore furnish, and we
are now able to point to the damning evidence
of the cowardice and desertion of the Fourth
Pennsylvania regiment. In the report of Gen.
McDowell, which we publish this afternoon, the
following language occurs :
On the eve of the battle the Fourth Penn
sylvania regiment of volunteers and the battery
of volunteer artillery of the New York Eighth
militia, whose term of service expired, insisted
on their discharge. I wrote to the regiment,
expressing request fur them to remain a short
time, and the Hon. Secretary of War, who was
at the time on the ground, tried to induce the
battery to remain at least five days. But in
vain. They insisted on their discharge that
night. It vas granted, and the next morning,
when the army moved forward into battle these
troops moved to the rear to the sound of the
enemy's cannon.
After such testimony, we submit the case of
the cowardice of the men of the Fourth Regi
ment to the peorle of Pennsylvania. Before
God and their country they stand convicted of
an action which others and not themselves must
wipe out, while every man who thus basely de
serted the flag of his nation has forfeited his
title and his heritage as an American citizen.
In contrast with the action of the regiment,
the gallant conduct of their leader, Col. ITar
traft, stands out in bold relief, as the evidence
of his courage, his personal integrity and his
manly patriotism.
As the matter stands now, the officers and
men of the Fourth Regiment are bound to ex
plain, or suffer the dreadful suspicion that rests
upon their reputation. We have all joined in
yielding to the volunteer his just meed of com
mendation. We have cried our throats hoarse
with huzzas of encouragement as he left, and
bid him welcome with shouts as he returned,
while the fairest hands have been weaving gar
lands for his brow, and the brightest eyes smil
ing upon him as the noblest of their defenders.
We have a right, then, to be just, and refuse
that respect and regard, where it seems to be
We ask the attention of the reader to the re
port in full of Gen. McDowell. It is an inter
estieg and important document, recording the
hi-tory of a disgrace to the American arms
which has dimmed the escutcheon of the Amer
ican honor.
The editors of the Patriot this morning in
dulged in their usual train and tissue of false
hoods, to escape the responsibility of their mis
representations, and force the odium of their
own action on the shoulders of their local report
er. In this instance, as in all others, when the
course of that journal excites the disgust and
the contempt of the community, and when
there is no possibility of the saintly Barrett or
the vivacious McDowell escaping public censure,
they compel their local reporter to father the
offspring of their own mental abortion, as if
the public were not able to distinguish between
them and he, while they were pursuing their
ingratitude and ancient enmity against a family
that has warmed some of them into existence,
and preserved the credit of others from utter
and irretrievable bankruptcy. It is not of the
harm that the Patriot can do the Secretary of
War that we complain—because in this con
nection the difference is too great between the
men to excite any fear in that particular, as the
party assailed rises infinitely above the malice
and groveling motives of his assailants, too
honorable to deem them worthy of reply, and
too honest to consider himself in danger by the
assault. Nor is it for J. D. Cameron that we
will attempt to apologise, because of the envy,
the meanness and premeditated attempt °lithe
editors of the Patriot to rend his character as
they have Tended their own by their own base
and cowardly condact. What J. D. Cameron
done in protesting against the payment of paper
money to the soldiers, was frankly and manfully
performed, with 'no thought of its being made public,
until a party of volunteers themselves called on the
writer of this article and demanded that it should be
We leave the public to judge the motives of
Messrs. Barrett & McDowell in this business, as
they have heretofore judged and condemned
their course on the subject of our relations to the
rebellion in the south. They started in a per_
stated opposition to the federal anthorities, sad
when public opinion beat down and crushed
out that cowardly attempt, they exhibited their
envenomed motive, and strike in another dit cc
don with the same malice, the same audacity
and the same object in view. Unless they
slander, they could not exist—without libel,
they are powerless, and in any other path than
that of vituperation and slang, they travel out
of the way of their mission, and trace the
measure of their own cowardly conduct. The
men whom they thus wantonly assailed this
morning, are the men who have most contri
buted to the credit of the publishers of the
Patriot and Union, AND THEY SNOW IT, however basely
they may attempt to deny it, by an insolent offer to
make any explanation of their ungrateful con
duct that the Secretary of War may desire.
l'he explanation they have made is sufficient
for this community. It stamps them with the
proof of their own cowardly falsehoods, and
leaves them steeped to their lips in their own
foul corruptions.

The Republican State Convention of New
York, at a recent meeting of that body in Al
bany, passed the following resolution :
Resolved, That a committee of five be appoint
ed to wait upon the Democratic State Commit
tee at their meeting to be held in this city on
cue Bth inst., to invite them to call their Con
vention at the same time and place as the Re
publican Convention, for the purpose of enabling
the two Conventions to unite in the nomina
tion of a Union ticket, pl..dged to a vigorous
prosecution of the was. for the restoration of
the authority of the Constitution, and the exe
cution of the national laws in all sections of
the country.
At present we can only commend the spirit
which dictated this proposition, as being of that
patriotic character which has distinguished the
organization, contests, triumphs and adminis
tration of the Republican party, from its origin
to its present proud and glorious position ; but
we must reserve any further comments until
the Democratic Committee of the Empire State
has responded to this noble appeal. The Re
publicans of the Union, while they are willing
to forego party nominations, and give up old
preferences to serve the wants of the country,
must not forget also that they have involved
so far as they are concerned, principles on which
are based the very life and prosperity of the
country. These must be insisted upon, or the
cause we now advocate and the contest we are
waging for the Union, will be placed in a jeop
ardy from which no arm can rescue it—simply
because by this union with all cliques some of
those who now secretly sympathize with the
rebels, may be clothed with power. In this re
spect, New York as well as Pennsylvania
abounds with secret foes to the government,
foes who claim to be Democratic, but Demo
crats who are the bitterest possible disunionists.
Just at this time, we must watch every move
in the north, by those who are clamoring for
the absolute destruction of all party lines. If
the people carefully observe these men, they
will discover that they are those who were for
merly the apologists of treason as a necessity
forced upon the people of the south by the elec
tion of Abraham Lincoln. These men now seek
power in a new disguise, and if they are so for
tunate as to gain their ends, the result will
prove that they are still the allies of the slave
The above naragraults were writtan and in
to have-been publishei yesterday, but
they were crowded out by a press of other mat
ter. Since then we learn by telegraph that the
Democratic State Committee of New York have
rejected the proposition of the Republican Com
mittee, on the ground that they are determined
to maintain a direct party organization, and
that they are also resolved, while approving
of the prosecution of this war, to do all in their
power to satisfy the south, and bring them back
again into the Union. It is not difficult to dis
cover the motive and object of this resolve on
the part of the leading Democratic politicians of
New York. They have di: covered that in the
north, whether they affiliate with Republicans
or maintain their own organization, they are
politically dead—and that their only hope is to
restore the power and prestige of those in the
south who are now in rebellion, and then form
an alliance with them for the achievement of
victories such as brought about the corruption
which emboldened the traitors to concoct their
present treason.
, Hereafter, let these sneaking demagogues be
silent on tha subject of no party. Hereafter,
too, let the people watch them as they devise
plans for the escape of those in rebellion. Our
word for it that there is more treason concoct
ing against the peace of the Union in the State
of New York than there is treason being en
acted in the rebel domain of South Carolina,
and that the most active traitors are those who
declare that they are ready to compromise for
the sake of pace, with the leaders of the re
Tam CORRESPONDENTS of the press in Wash
ington, generally, are at length fully impressed
with the necessity of not reporting army move
ments, or anything in the shape of news calcu
lated to give any aid and comfort to the enemy.
The wishes of General kt'Clellan will, in this
respect, be faithfully adhered to. Some stringent
measures, will, however, be necessary to get the
press of that city, as well as of Baltimore, into
the traces. Some newspapers in New York,
who too boldly avow secession sympathies, also
need a little looking after, and in a day or two
means will be taken to cool the secession ardor
of the journals referred to. It is of the highest
importance that the press of the country should
properly appreciate the responsibility attaching
to it, and that the utmost care be taken to pub
lish nothing inconsistent with the public weal.
Jona LEYBUEN, one of the editors of the Phil
adelphia Presbyterian has retired from a connec
tion with that journal, because "circumstances
arising out of the present agitation of the coun
try have satisfied" him " thatlie cannot with
I •
propriety continue to occupy his editorial
chair." This is rather a vague and unsatisfac
tory manner for a professed Christian man to
desert a holy cause in the hour of danger and
calamity, although we have no idea that the
Presbyterian will suffer by the loss of Mr. Ley
burn's services.

Scouts and fugitives yesterday morning
brought word of the approach of a large Con
federate force from Yorktown. These rumors
were confirmed at 6 p. m. by an intelligent
deserter from the secessionists named E A.
Mabew, a native of Maine, but resident of
Georgia until impressed into service, who fur
nished an account of the expedition. - Mr.
Mahew has been stationed at Yorktown since
the Ist of June. On Friday last Colonel (now
Gen.) Magruder left Yorktown with a force of
7,000 men, including 200 cavalry and 8 pitces
of artillery, viz: 3 Parrot guns, 4 Howitzers and
1 Rifled cannon.
Part of the troops were from Williamsburg.
On Monday night they encamped at Great
Bethel which had been completely deserted.
On Tuesday night they advanced towards Ham
pton and at noon took up a position on
Back river some three miles from the town,
where Mahew managed to escape through a
corn field, and by swimming a couple of streams
reached the fortress. He sass the object of this
expedition was to draw out our forces to attack
Camp Hamilton near Newport News, if prac
ticable, and at least to destroy Hampton, so as
to prevent us from using it for winter quarters.
Gen. Butler at once repaired to this end of
Hampton bridge, where he remained until four
o'clock. Col. Weber erected a barricade near
the Hampton end of the bridge and placed
a strong guard at - various points on this side 01
the creek. A few minutes past midnight gen.
Magruder, with about 500 confederates, some
of them belonging in Hampton, entered the
town and immediately fired the buildings with
The greater part of the five hundred houses
were built of wood and as no rain has fallen
lately, the strong south wind soon produced a
terrible conflagration. There were perhaps
twenty white people and double that number
of negroes remaining in the town from inability
to remove some of whose house were .fired
without waking the inmates. '
both le offti g lairmm out iuteen n i ut:
utes to remove a few articles of furniture to the
garden. Several of the whites and also of ne
groes were hurried away to be pressed into the
confederate service.
Wm. Scofield, a merchant, took refuge in a
swamp above town.
Two negroes were drowned while attempting
to cross tue creek.
A company of rebels attempted to force the
passage of the bridge, but were repulsed with a
loss of three killed and six wounded.
The fire raged all night. The greater part
of the confederates withdrew toward morning,
and at noon to-day, when I visited the place,
but seven or eight buildings were left standing.
The destruction of the town was a wanton
act of cruelty to resident Unionists, and more
over entirely useless, as General Butler intends
to winter his army beyond Hampton.
An attempt will be made to fasten the act
upon the General, but after ten on Wednesday
night there was not a fe,deral soldier in Hamp
A flag of truce just in from Norfolk with
Miss Mayo, a nice of Gen. Scott, on her way
from Richmond to New York, states that the
rebels attribute the act to Gen. Butler.
Gen. Magruder has encamped near New, Mar
ket Bridge. He will hardly venture to attack
Newport News.
Mr. Mahew Stated that there have been about
7,000 rebels stationed at Yorktown. Some ten
days ago a battalion came down to the outskirts
of Hampton and carried away 180 negroes.
Provisions are aboundant at Yorktown, and
most of the regiments are receiving new uni
forms for the winter campaign.
The Rebels Routed and Pursued.
Eighteen Prisoners Taken and Thirty-One

• Qutscr, Aug.
A band of rebels, numbering from A 1,000 8.
1,2(10, made an attack upon the camp of the
Union men at Athens, Mo., on Monday morn
ing last, at 5 o'clock.
There was a considerable amount of arms and
ammunition for the United States troops stored
in this place, under guard of the troops com
posing this camp, United States volunteers,
numbering about three hundred and fifty, under
command of Captain Moore.
The fighting lasted about an hour, when the
rebels retreated.
In the meantime Captain Moore having been'
reinforced by about one hundred and fifty men
from Centralia, lowa, on the opposite side of
the river, gave chase after the rebels for about
a mile and a half, killing one of their number,
taking eighteen prisoners, and capturing thirty
one horses and two secession flags.
Several of the rebels were wounded in the
chase after the battle, and six or eight rebels
were found dead on the field.
In the afternoon the bearer of a rebel flag of
truce to the Union camp admitted that they
carried off fourteen killed, and that as many
were wounded and missing.
Athens is a small town on the extreme north
east of Missouri, on the Demoine* river, twen
ty-five or thirty miles west of Meokuk.
It is reported that the Union forces, having
been farther reinforced by five
,or six hundred
troops from lowa, marched in pursuit of the
rebels on Monday night and were encainped

Scene of Violence and Confusion.
Attempt of Breckimmdge to Speak.
His Remarks received with Mingled
Groans, Hisses and Cheers.
Breckinridge's efforts -to speak were contin
ued for half an hour before he was compelled
to desist. Among the broken sentences heard
were that "He desired to speak for the poor
and weak, and not for the rich and powerful."
A voice responded "You lie and you know you
He referred to the position of Maryland whcse
citizens had again and again been outraged in
their dearest constitutional rights, and to all
respectful enquiries as to charges alleged against
those who had been rudely torn from their
homes and family, nothing but contemptuous
responses had been heard. "Do you," he said,
"Lail this liberty ?" Cries'of "no !no !" inter
mingled with hisses and shouts of "Oh ! dry up,
you traitor," &c., &c.
Mr. Breckinridge enquired why they were
present ii they did not desire to hear him.
Cheering, followed by biases, drowned his voice.
A violent commotion was now observed
among the crowd, which swayed from pave
ment to pavement as under strong excitement,
and the espantoons of the police were plied
with vigor on the heads of those who seemed
to be resisting.
Mr. Breckinridge speaking amid the din said,
that, "those who interrupted him with oppro
bions epithets and with hisses were poor fellows
who were tightening the degrading fetters
which bound them." Renewed cheering, fol
lowed instantly by a renewal of violent distur
Mr. Breckinridge. " You poor fellows may
hiss me now, but your children will bless me, '
A voice, "oh, go to South Carolina, and be
d—d to you.' This was met by venement
cheers, and a rush by the police followed by a
gang of men from tho right towards the side
from whence proceeded the cheers, during which
several men were severely beaten and hurried
bleeding from the street.
Mr. Breckinridge. "If you don't intend to
allow me to speak, then disperse the crowd. I
did not volunteer to address yon, remember."
[Cheers and hisses.] "If I did not know the
squad of men disturbing this assemblage were
no exponents of the sentiment's of the people
of Baltimore I should] deepair of your city."
[Cheers for Jeff Davis and Gen. Scott.]
Another scene of commotion again ensued.
Amid frequent interuptions the speaker pro
ceeded to say that singe the time when the Con
stitution had been designated as the limit to
despotic power, nothing so outrageous as these
enacted by the Administration had ever oc
curred. " Liberty," he said, " existed before
the Constitution was formed, and whenever the
issue is presented between that on the one
hand and a mere form of Government on the
other, the form would perish, but principles
would survive."
Hisses, groans and cheers.

It was expected that the enemy would make
an immediate attack, from the fact that their
commissary department was in a miserable con

contributions for temporary supplies.
It was generally remarked in Springfield that

case of an attack. He had no entrenchments,
