OUTRAGEOUS ASSAULT BY ROWDERS.—At a late
hour last Saturday night a soldier from Camp
(urn°, named William O'Donnel while quietly
walking along Fourth street'above Walnut was
attacked by three or four rowdies who beat him
in such a merciless manner that he is not ex
pected to recover. When found, O'Donnel was
lying in the gutter appareatly lifeless, with his
skull fractured and other parts of his body
holly bruised. He was carried to the residence
of Xlr. John Thomas in Fourth street, where
a physici in was summone I who dressed his
w,undis, and yesterday morning he was removed
to the hospital at Camp Curtin, where he now
lie; in a critical condition. His assailants are
known to the police, and it is to be hoped that
they will be captured and dealt with according
to their deserts.
Police MAT white' an, whose name
we could not learn, was put in the city lock-up
about two o'clock Sunday morning by Chief
Police Constable Ridabaugh. The tracer ar

the organization of this brigade is proceeding
livorably, and that in a few days the Genera)
will have three full regiments in camp. It i s
understood that Col. Hambright's Lancaster
regiment goes into this brigade. The Colonel is
of German descent, and as he speaks the Ger
man language fluently, it is expected that a
large number of Teutons will join his command.
Capt. Sevier, who served with Gen. Siegel in
Germany, commands a company in this regi
We are also informed that Colonel Serwcll's
Kittanning regiment will be attached to General
Negely's command. It is nearly full, and will
be in Camp Cameron next week. The General
himself has a regiment under way, which lacks
but a few men of having the full complement.
He must have four regiments to fill his trigade,
but with the three already secured, he can

tempts to escape, we thought it prudent to have
them handcuffed together until they would ar

they were immediately taken to Capt. Bolenius,
who told them that if they would hereafter
obey orders he would at once release them.
They refused to do so, 'and he then ordered
them to be taken to the guard house and kept
there until 6 o'clock a. m. They were not kept
there more than two and a half hours. The
commanding officer then ordered them to be

HI On- HA.ND&D PROCEEDINGS AT TILE DEP, 4-
A New York Lieut. Colonel on his Travels.—Quite
an excitement occurred at the depot on Sunday
morning, which - for a time threatened to cul
minate in a very serious disturbance. It ap
pears that a train of cars arrived here from
New York city, containing three or four compa
nies of cavalry under the command of a Lieut.
Colonel named Kilpatrick, intended to fill up a
regiment of cavalry, now in Washington city.
There was some delay at the depot, owing to
there being no locomotive ready to draw the
train, when the Lieut. Colonel, a pompous
looking dapper little individual, with " import
ance " written all over him, detailed a squad of
men to proceed to the Round-House of the Penn
sylvania Railroad Co. and procure a locomotive
vi et amnia. Mr. Young, Superintendent of the
Eastern Division of the Pennsylvania Railroad,
hearing of these proceedings, at once went to
the Round-House, where he found the squad in
possession of a locomotive, which they had
fired up and were in the act of putting in mo
tion for the depot. He politely requested them
to leave the establishment, which they refused
to do, at the same time using highly insult
ing language ; whereupon Mr. Young, who is
a stout-limbed, muscular man, struck' out from
his right shoulder with a force that sent one of
the soldiers on a balloon expedition some five
feet from the locomotive. The other soldiers
at once pitched into Mr. Young, who, gave
every promise of being able to finish them
off in detail,, when , they finally concluded
that " discretion was the better part
of valor," and left for reinforcements. They
soon returned to the round house, their number
augmented to ten or fifteen, but in the mean
time the employees of the machine shop had
tallied in full force, and evinced a determina
tion to defend the company's property to the
last. The soldiers looked with dismay upon
this formidable array of men, and without
making the least demonstration turned and re
traced their steps to the depot. Mr. Young, on
his return to the depot, hunted up the officer
in command, when the aforesaid dapper little
Lieutenant Colonel presented himself.
"By what authority do you take possession of
private property,"asked the Superintendent in
a calm, yit ltrm aneffignifiea doice
"By mnitaig authority, sir I" responded the
diminutive "Importance," giving his mustache
a twirl that had an awe inspiring effect.
Mr. Young intimated that when that au
thority eminated from the proper quarter he'
would cheerfully obey it, but he would not per
mit suoh outrageous proceedings in a place where
the civil law was still superior to the law
The little officer here commenced to fume and
fret in a manner laughable to look upon. Ac
pordlog to his account he had put a steam-boat
captain in irons, and wouldn't stop a moment
to put the lid i perintendent, the Directors, Presi
dent, and all the attachees of the road in the
same coalition. He was a terrible little custo
mer, thiilittle Lieutenant Colonel.
During the above coloquy, some of the sol
diers seized the small locomotive Ontario—used
for shifting cars—belonging to the Lebanon
Valley Railroad Company, and attached it to

LECTURE OH HAYTI. —Joseph E. Williams, a
native of Middletown, this county, will deliver
a lecture this evening in the Methodist Church,
Tanner's alley, on the commercial, political
and advantages of emigration to Hayti. Mr.
Williams is an intelligent looking colored man,
and is apparently well booked up in the affairs of
the Haytian Republic. He has resided in that
country since last June, and has been appointed
by the authorities there an emigration agent for
the State of Indiana. We have no doubt his
lecture will be highly entertaining and instruc

EXPLOSIVE PELLTEIILLL nr BURNING FLUID. —A
Correspondent sends a Philadelphia paper the
following in reference to the manufacture of
burning fluid : "As accidents from burning fluid
explosions are increasing in numbers daily, let
me call your attention' to fact a that every one
tudni the article should know. Certain parties
are using in the manufacture of the fluid, benzine
made from coal tar, as a substitute for turpen
tine, the latter having risen in price, owing to
the blockade of southern States. The fluid
made with benzine is fearfully explosive, and
the slightest defect in a lamp may cause death
to even the most careful in filling and handling
, FOUND DEAD.—Last Saturday afternoon Al
derman Kline was called upon to hold an in
quest on the remains of a man, found dead in
Eby & Kunkle's warehouse, at the canal, foot
of Walnut street. The deceased was about fifty
years of age, but nothing could be found about
him to ascertain his name or place of residence.
Some people residing in the vicinity had seen
him alive a few hours previous, and it is sap
posed that he wandered into the warehouse,
fell asleep, and died with the di, , ease of the
heart. The jury rendered a verdict of "death
by visitation of God,"' and the remains of the
deceased were taken to the poor house for in

loads, on Wednesday thirty-five, and on Thurs
day night fifty-four. These are, of course, ex

Fort Wayne and Chicago road. They suffer no
detention at Pittsburg, and are shipped to the
