MILITAIIv Aau fiAr. —A sergeant, named Lockart,
who has been for some time recruiting in this
city for Col. Campbell's Fifth Pennsylvania regi
ment of artillery was arrested last Satur
day. The arrest was made in pusuance of
orders received from . Col. Campbell. Lochart
is charged with desertion, having refused,
when required, to report himself at the
camp of the regiment near Washington. The
prisoner was put in irons, lodged under a proper
guard at Military Hall, and at noon to day was
sent to Washington, where he will be trielby
a Court Martial.
days ago some half a dozen juveniles of Mecha
nicsburg, from ten to twelve years of age, hav
ing conceived a desire to visit the seat of war,
started for 'Washington ou the freight train,
and proceeded as far as this city. Here, it ap
pears, they were prevented from taking passage
on any of the trains, and after spending the
night in an empty car, retraced their steps home

doubtless thoroughly disgusted with the diffi
culties attendant upon the pursuit of pleasure
of this kind.
THE New STAND Rzontustrrs. —The regiments
under the last requisition are rapidly being
formed in this city. They will number from
the Forty-fifth to the Sixtieth, inclusive—six
teen in number. The plan of numbering is to
count twenty-five three-months', four indepen
dent and fifteen reserve regiments, bringing the
number, previously organized in the State up to
forty-four. The officers assigned to regiments
thus far are :
Col. Thos. Welsh, Forty-fifth ; Col. Joseph
Knipe, Forty-sixth; Col. T. H. Goode, Forty
seventh; Col. Jas. Nagle, Forty -eighth; Col.
Wm. H. Irvin, Forty-ninth; Col. B. C. Christ,
Fiftieth. The remaining Colonels are not yet
assigned the number of their regiments.

A Nsw COMNITKIITEIT.—A counterfeit five dol
lar note, on the Bank of Commerce, has made
its appearance, which, although nothing like
the genuine, except in the size and form of the
letters in the name, has deceived many accus
tomed to handling paper money. The note is
printed on flimsy paper, of a lighter color than
the genuine. In the right hand corner it has a
vignette of a stone mason, very clumsily
executed ; on the left are three female figures,
two sitting and the other reclining ; the one
nearest the corner of the note is holding a sheaf
of wheat. The note is marked with the letter
D. The signatures do not resemble those of the
genuine at all.

their corral near Camp Curtin, and came to the
city on a perfect rush, to the great consterna
tion of our inhabitants generally. When the
column reached Third and North streets, it di
vided, a portion of the animals going down the
former street, while the remainder continued
their rapid career out the latter street to Front,
where we lost sight of them. Fortunately the
streets through which the terrified animals
passed were clear of vehicles and pedestrians, so
that no disastrous consequences resulted from
the stampede. The animals were all recovered,
and taken to the other side of the river to await
transportation to Washington.
. THE Jaws AND THE WAIL—The Jewish Mes
senger says that in the army of the Union the
Jews will be found to occupy no insignificant
part, taking into consideration their compara
tive fewness of numbers. Commissioned and
non-commissioned officers as well as privates of
the Jewish faith there are many ; some in corn
' mead of fine regiments and gallant companies,
have made their mark already; some have been
stricken down by the hand of the destroyer ;
some have received wounds which a lifetime
may not heal ; but, on the whole, they have
been singularly blessed. "The patriotism of
our country," adds the Messenger, "has mani
fested itself in various ways ; the unwonted
spectacle of the star spangled banner floating
from the pinnacle of a Jewish synagogue has I
become an every day sight."
Cot.. Salmon' Itsonourr.—The Washington
correspondent of the Philadelphia Press pays
the following merited compliment to the effi
ciency of our townsman, Capt. Simmons, his
subordinates, and command. The writer
"Semi-Occasional," visited the Reserve corps,
and after noticing other regiments, says :
In the afternoon we visited Col. Simmons'
regiment, the Fifth Pennsylvania Reserve, and
were again delighted with all we saw. Colonel
Seneca G. Simmons entered the army more
than twenty-seven years ago, from West Point.
During the Mexican War he was promoted to a
captaincy, and recently, on account of a wound
in the foot, was granted a furlough for three
years. By permission of the War Department
he took command of this fine regiment, which,
thanks to his skill and talents, is now one of
the hest drilled and most efficient in the service.
Their evolutions were almost as interesting as a
battle. After a manner Qf his own he threw them
into hollow squares, four deep, to resist cavalry,
in a fewer seconds than it takes to write this
short sentence. Besides many other move
ments, he made them charge on a full run,
with a shout in unison from nine hundred throats, so
loud and terrific that if I had not seen them, I
would have sworn there were nine thousand in
stead of nine hundred—
"At once there rose so wild a yell,
Within that dark Secession dell,
As if the fiends from heaven that fell,
Had called Jeff Davis down to hell."
The Orientals are not so foolish, after all,
when they attempt to frighten their foes by a
great noise. If Gov. Wise had heard that yell,
he would have been running yet.
AN AFFRAY. TO Youso Mss.—At a time when
every nerve ought to be strained to put down
the enemies of onr beloved country, when every
able bodied man who has a spark of patriotism
in his bosom ought to be in the ranks of her
defenders, we find hundreds of young gentle
men, in the flower of health and strength pas
sing their time in idleness and complaining of
hard times. We speak now of youths who
have been well educated and accustomed to
good society, many of whom are at this present
time wasting precious hours and their own en
ergies unprofitably. A considerable number of
them have served with the three months vol
unteers, and have returned home with a very
fair knowledge of military affairs, besides hav
ing become inured to camp life. Why do they
not re-enlist ? The answer is pretty nearly the
same in each individual case. "I am looking
out for a commission. I will not go back as a
private. I know enough now to be fit for an
officer." We are willing to admit that there is
some laudable pretension about this. An hon
orable ambition to distinguish one's self and
obtain high position is one of the prime incen
tives to the soldier. But there is, or ought to
be, a far higher one in a time like the present,
this great contest is to be decided soon, it must
be done by such a demonstration of force and
such determination on the part of the North as
shall unmistakably prove the inutility of pro
longed resistance. The true public opinion of
the Unionists will be shown, also, as much in
the quality as in the quantity of the men who
take up arms.

RAILROAD. —A fatal accident occurred on the
Northern Central Railroad last Saturday night,
about five miles from Baltimore, near Mount
Washington. Two trains, the foremost with
eighteen and the hindmost with eleven cars at
tached, were conveying the 49th Pennsylvania
regiment, - Col. Wm. H. Irwin, to Baltimore, en
route for Washington, and when in the neigh
borhood of Mt. Washington the rear train ran
into the front and killed two soldiers instantly,
wounded three others slightly, and crushed the
engineer's (Mr. Charles Johnson) foot and allele
very badly. The bodies of the two men killed
were taken to Baltimore, and yesterday buried
in the Western Cemetery. The three wounded
soldiers were taken charge of and conveyed to
the Adams House hospital, and yesterday pro
ceeded to Washington to join their regiment.—
The two killed were three month's men, who
had served out their time, and had re-enlisted
and were returning to the war. Their names
were John Fulton, aged 20 years, and Daniel
Parker, aged 24 years. The deceased were both
unmarried, and were from Chester county, Pa.
Mr. Johnson, the engineer, had his leg ampu
tated yesterday by Professor Smith.
A Itirerexs.—We observe that some of our
exchanges, under the idea that its provisions are
general, are publishing a supplement to the
Election Law passed at the last session of the
Legislature, which requires the return inspec
tors, once in each and every hour during the
election to count the tickets, and thereupon de
posit the tickets counted in the ballot boxes
provided for the purpose ; also ; to make pub
licly known the state of the vote at each and
every hour, and in like manner, immediately
after closing the polls, make publicly known
the result of said election. The provisions of
the supplement only apply to the city of Phila
delphia, and may be found entire on page 676
of the pamphlet laws.
Arras. Gas. Joassox.—Considerable excite
ment existed in certain circles of our city this
morning owing to.the reception of a telegraphic
dispatch containing the startling intelligence
that the rebel General Johnson had left Vir
ginia, and was making his way eastward ineog.
through the interior of Pennsylvania! A sub
sequent dispatch announced that a person re
sembling the smash General had left Chambers
burg this morning in the Cumberland valley
train of cars for this city. Of course such an
announcement was well calculated to excite our
activity, and we began to feel exceedingly "nu
merous." Visions of "bulletin boards," "long
black type for headings," " extra editions,"
"lightning presses," " clamerous crowds"—all
flitted through our mind with telegraphic
rapidity, and we began to whittle our pencil
point with a desperate energy. As the hour drew
near for the arrival of the Cumberland valley
train, we repaired to the depot, "our bosom
beating eager for the"—item. Here we found
some half-a•dozen gentlemen in uniform, whose
shoulder-knots betokened high rank. Their coun
tenances wore that staid, solemn expression
which indicated that their mission was one of
more than ordinary importance. To a question we
put to one who seemed more communicative
than the rest, we got nothing but a wave of the
hand, and a negative turn of the head, which
inspired us with awe, and gave us the most
enlarged ideas of official greatness generally.
However, we were not to be bluffed—"if the
mountain would not come to Mahomet, why
Mahomet would go to the mountain;" so with
this determination we perched ourselves upon
a fire-plug and awaited events. The train final
ly arrived, and we made a rush for the plat
form, anxious to get the first peep at the
great Unhung, and "do him up" for the iarti
cular benefit of our readers. But alas for the
stabililty of human hopes !—those of newspaper
reporters especially—there was "nary" a Gen
eral Johnson aboard ! Him whom suspicion
had pointed out as the distinguished rebel,
turned out, upon being searched at Williams
port, Md., to be entirely a different personage—
a gentleman from western Virginia, perfectly
sound on the Union question, going north to
purchase goods. The crowd, at least that por
tion of them who were advised of. the contents
of the dispatch, took their disappointment in
good humor, and went to dinner, while we, de
termined to make the most of it, returned to
the office, and used our extra portion of note
paper in preparing this item.

September 21st, 1861.
Sin :—To my circular of yesterday's date pub
lishing to the country, through the PENNSYLVA
NIA 'TELEGRAPH, certain wholesale desertions
from this camp of rendezvous and instruction, it is
proper to add that it would be unjust to regard
these offences against military dircipline 'and
the 1 Lws of the land as characterizing the pre
vailing temper of the 1223 remaining volunteers at
Camp Cameron, but that 1 may not refrain from
giving the facts, direct and circumstantial,
whence it is dificult not to believe the deser
tions to have resulted.
Lieutenant Geo. H. Hill's, 11. S. volunteers,
note to me herewith, implicates General Negley
with Captain McNalley's and his company'sde
sertion ; Capt. J. R. Smead's, 11. S. army, en
dorsement on that note, implicates Guu. Neg
ley, and also convicts Capt. McNalley of hav
ing added wilful falsehood to the crime of de
sertion with his company from the military
service of the United States.
The note with endorsement are offered for
publication with this, as supplementary to my
Capt. Rutherford's, U. S. Quartermaster at
Camp Cameron, verbal statement to me that
he furnishtd on the 19th of September transpor
tation by rail from Harrisburg to Lancaster to
Capt. McNally and his company, with the un
derstanding from Capt. McNally that they were
going to Lancaster by my order or with my ap
probation, corroborates Capt. Smead's endorse
ment, and doubly affixes to Capt. McNally's
deserti: n from the military service of the United
States, the additional misdemeanor of wilful
As the desertions of Captains McNalley and
McCasey with their companies occurred after
certain conversations with Col. Wynkoop, Gen.
Negley and myself, at different times, in the
morning of September 19, who, I am credibly
informed, after their return from Camp to Har
risburg spoke in public in no measured terms
of their interview with me, and who, may there
fore.properly be supposed—in their assumed or
prospeCtive relations to Captains McNalley and
ilcCasey and their companies, as understood to
be designed to form part of prospective regi
ments of Gen. Negley's prospective brigade—to
have influenced the aforesaid desertions by their
remarks, if not already determined as shown by
Captains Smead and Hill, the one in his note,
the other in his endorsement to that note, I
will state substantially what was said by me in
those interviews.
In the morning of September 19, some hours
before the desertions had taken place, Colonel
Wynkoop and General Negley separately called
at the general office tent for Camps Cameron
and Grehle to see me about matters of supply,
I believe, to men in Camp Cameron ; when,
foreseeing from this sort of interference, of soli
citude if you please, nothing but disorganiza
tion and dissatisfaction, and confusion to all the
ordinary rules of arrangement, economy and
discipline enforced in military camps, and en
forced for the good of the service and for the
equal benefit of all, I said to them, after short
preface, that I did not know either of them of
ficially, and could not permit counsel, sugges
tions or interference in the details of my coin
mend ; that I was here,not only to command
and to organize, but also to provide and to show
all properly under my orders how to get their
allowances under law and regulations,rand that
if improperly interfered with, I should order
out of camp the person or persons offending.

Negley's brigade of Pennsylvania Volunteers.—
I refused to muster the men as no physical ex
amination had been made ; stated to the officer
that I would muster them at Camp Cameron as
soon as they were passed by a surgeon. I asked
the officer what authority the company had to
go to Lancaster. He stated that General Neg
ley, (who was in an outer room, apparently lis
tening ,tu our conversation through an open
door,) had instructions from the Secretary of
War to that effect. A short time after this I
saw General Negley talking to the men of this
company on the opposite side of the street from
my office, but took no further notice of them, as
I supposed Major Williams was cognizant of the
movements of the company. Afterwards I
learned that the company left in the train for
Lancaster about 1 P. IL, same day, without the
knowledge of their commanding offieer, Major
Williams, sth Artillery.
I certainly did not tell this officer that Col.
Hambright could muster them, for I did not
know that Col. Hambright was at Lancaster.
Respectfully submitted,
JIM. R. SMEAD, Capt. sth Artillery.
At 1 o'clock P. M., Sept. 19th, 1861, I met
Lieut. S. T. Davis, of Capt. McNally's company of
volunteers, on the road from Harrisburg to Camp
Cameron, who stated to me in answer to my
question • 'Had his company been mustered in?"
that there was some difficulty, and that General
Negley who was there (at the depot) had ordered
the company to Lancaster to join the regiment
of Col. Hambright (of Negley's brigade) in Lan
caster, and that Capt. Smead, 11. S. A., muster
ing officer at Harrisburg, said that they could
be mustered in by Col. Hambright, in Lancas
ter, as well as by him, (Capt. Smead) in Harris
burg; and that he (Lieut. Davisvas going back
to camp to finish his duties as officer of the
guard, and then. would, join his company at Lan
caster. Gso. H. Hun,
