FROM GEN. BANK'S COLUMN.
Particulars of the Shooting of Major
A BODY OF REBEL CAVALRY SCATTERED.
DARNESTOWN, Sept. 24
A tragical occurrence was witnessed near this
village yesterday in the Pennsylvania Forty
sixth, Col. Knipe, on their way to join Gen'L
Bank's column. In the regiment is a company
compceed principally of Irishmen, who have
given the commander much trouble. When
near Muddy Run, two of the men got engaged
in a fight, and one of them, named Linehan,
of company ; a very bad character, was, by
order of Major Arnold C. Lewis, tied to the rear
of a baggage wagon. After proceeding about
a mile it was reported to Major Lewis that
Lanahan was at large with a loaded gun in his
hand. The Major, accompanied. by Assistant
Surgeon W. Charles Rogers, rode towards Lana
ban and ordered him to give up the gun.
Lanahan refused; and while the Major was in
the act of getting off his horse to enforce his
order, Lanahan retreated a few steps, took de
liberate aim,- and shot the Major in the back
wish a ball and three buckshot.
The latter fell and expired in three minutes,
without uttering a word. Lanahan was secured,
and the body of the unfortunate officer was
placed in a wagon and guarded to the camp.
Lanahan is'now in the hands of the "Provost
Marshal, and will be tried by a drum-head
court probably to-day. The murderer is a resi
dent of Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Major Lewis was thirty-two years of age, was
married about a year ago, and leaves a widow
but no children. He served in the Mexican
war, and on the breaking out of the present re •
hellion, was editing the Catasaqua (Lehigh
county) Herald, which occupation he resigned
to enter the army. He was dearly beloved by
the whole regiment, and his death hangs like a
pall upon the spirits of his associates.
Yesterday morning, Col. Le Due, of the New
York Thirty-fourth, keeping guard on the Po
tomac, discovered a body of rebel cavalry on
the opposite side partially concealed by trees
and ravines. From various movements "it was
supposed that they were in considerable force,
and that they meditated constructing some of
' fensive works there. About noon he com
menced throwing shells from a point too far
distant to produce much effect. Changing the
position, he threw several shells into their
midst, scattering them in every direction. This
occurred at the mouth of the Seneca river.
The Massachusetts Twelfth, Colonel Webster,
has recently taken a position which relieves the
New York Thirty-fourth of a, portion of the
arduous duty of guarding nine miles of the
river line. During the shelling to-day one of
rebels, by the aid of glasses, was discovered to
have on a uniform of the Thirty-fourth, belong
ing it is supposed, to one of the killed or cap
tured scouts, who ventured across the river last
Winter blankets and new tents are being is
sued to several of the regiments in view of the
approaching cold weather. Saturday night was
very cold, and the farmers predict early frosts
in this region.
TRENTON, N. J., Sept. 24
Messrs. Kreamer and Nightingale, of Hunter
dom were arrested and brought to this city to
day charged with treasonable conspiracy. It is
alleged that they have been engaged in recruit
big men for a treasonable organization called
the "Sons of Liberty," having for its motto
" Jefferson Davis before Abe Lincoln. "
Subsequently the tack was changed, and
recently it is alleged they have been
enlisting men for the .'Union, but secretly
with the intention of serving the purposes of
Jeff Davis. They were imprisoned in the Mer
cer county jail. The grand jury are examining
the evidence against them, and will report dur
ing the present term.
