HARRISBURG, PA., MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 22, 1862
• IkiLOTIIIIIINT AT THE CAPITOL —Arrest of an al
leged Secession Spy.—There was quite an excite
ment in Fourth street, back of the State Capi
tol, about seven o'clock last evening, growing
out of the arrest of a stranger who is alleged to
be a rebel spy.
From what we could gather among the
crowd, respecting the affair, it seems that the
stranger was identified by some of the em
ployees of the Pennsylvania railroad company
as having been a passenger on the fast freight
line froni Pittsburg last Saturday night. Yes
terday he proceeded to Camp Curtin, and in a
bolstering manner asked for the commanding
officer, stating to the guards that he desired to
speak with some of the rebel prisoners confined
there. He was told that if that was the pur
pose of his visit, there was no use for him to
make the application to the officer, as it would
meet with a positive refusal. The stranger
then made an attempt to force himself within
the lines, which of course was prevented, when
he became indignant and indulged in some very
violent language, in the course of which he
stated that the " prisoners looked better with
out uniforms than the Union soldiers did with
them ;" that " the Union army will be routed
horse, foot and dragoon at Richmond ;" that
" there was no fight in the Union soldiers," and
various other remarks disparaging to our gal
lant forces and the Union cause generally, after
which, with a contemptons sneer, he retraced
his steps towards the city.
The circumstances was shortly afterwards
related to some of the officers at the camp,
when they Immediately left in pursuit of the
stranger, and succeeded in overtaking him in
Fourth street. He strenonsly denied having
made use of the language attributed to him;
said that he was only six weeks in this
country from Ireland ; had• visited the camp out
of mere curiosity to see the rebel prisoners;
and was altogether as good a Union man as any
one in the crowd.
Several gentlemen, however, stepped up and
confirmed the sentinel's statements with refer
ence to the violent language made use of by
the stranger, having also heard it; upon which
the officers considered themselves justified in
holding him as a military prisoner, and accord
ingly marched him off to Camp Curtin, where
we presume he spent the night in the guard
house, to be heard before the proper authori
ties this morning.
The prisoner is a short, stout built man, with
Mellissian features. He wears a silk bat and
black cloth coat, very long in the skirt, and
kept buttoned. He refused to give his name.
Tun BODY op ran Daowgsn Boy, John Wen
nell, was brought to this city on Saturday even
ing by Mr. J. B. Boyd, and an uncle of the de
ceased. On Friday Mr. Boyd proceeded to Safe
Harbor, the vicinity where the body was firit
discovered, and having completed his arrange
ments, the body was placed in a coffin for re
moral to this city.
Squire A. B. Witman, of Safe Harbor, who
had held an inquest on the deceased, was most
assiduous in his attention to the friends and
relatives who has proceeded to Safe Harbor for
the purpose of identifying and removing the
remains to this city. The fact that the body
bad remained in the water for so long a time,
and the bruises it had received in passing over
the rocks in its floating down the river, would
have almost precluded the possibility of identi
fication, bad it not been for other stray resem
blances of the unfortunate boy being visible to
leave no doubt of the identity of the corpse.
In connection with Squire Witman, Conrad
Fry, also of Safe Harbor, was indefatigable in
his attention to those who had gone from this
city on this sad business, showing a most com
mendable disposition to aid in every manner in
his•power, both in the recovery and the prepa
ration of the remains for removal. The kind
ness of Messrs. Witmer and Fry will long be
remembered by the friends of the deceased.
Disco scrum . AGENTI3.—As the warm weath
er approaches, our citizens should thoroughly
cleanse their premises, rendering them as pure
and healthy as possible. There are a number
of disenfectiing agents which will be found effi
cacious in removing offensive smells from the
damp, mould cellars, yards, pools of stagnant
water, decaying vegetable matter, etc. Either
of the following will answer the purpose,
while they cost bat a trifle.
1. One pint of the liquor of chloride of zinc,
in one pailful of water and one pound of chlo
ride of lime in another pailful of water. This
is, perhaps, the most effective of anything that
can be used, and when thrown upon decaying
vegetable matter of Itny description, will effec
tually destroy all offensive odors. 2. Three or
four pounds of sulphate of iron, (copperas)
dissolved in a pailful of water, will in many
cases be sufficient to remove all offensive odors.
8. Chloride of lime is better to scatter • about
places, in yards, in damp cellars, and upon
hea of filth.

A GALLANT ATTACK
CAPTURE OF THE BATTERY.
Eight Guns and Ammunition

partment to-day :

via Cairo June 21. r
7b Hon. Edwin M. Staunton, Secretary of War:
On arriving eight miles below here last even
ing, we ascertained that the enemy had two
batteries here supported by a force (number un
known) of infantry. A combined attack was
made at 7 A. u., to-day. The regiment under
my command, the 46th Indiana, landed twenty
four and a half miles below the battery, and
skirmishers were thrown out, who drove in
the enemy's pickets. The gunboats then moved
up and opened on their battery. A rifled shot
from one of the b ttteries penetrated the steam
draw of the Mound City, disabling, by scald
ing, most of her crew.
Apprehensive that some similar accident
might happen to the other gunboats and leave
my small force without their support, I sig
nalled the gunboats to cease firing, and we
would storm the battery. They ceased exactly
at the right moment, and my men carried the
'battery gallantly. The infantry were driven
from the support ofthe gnus, the gunners shot
at their post, and their commanding officer
Frye, formerly of the United States navy,
wounded and taken prisoner.
Eight braes and iron guns with ammunition
were captured. The enemy's loss is unknown.
We have buried seven or eight of their dead
and other dead and wounded are being brought
in. The casualties among my own command
are small, the only real loss being from the
escaping steam in the Mound City; she will
probably be repaired and ready to proceed with
us up the river to-morrow. A full report will be
made as early as possible.

The bark Gem of the Seas on the 8d inst.,
captured the rebel schooner Mary Stewart from
Nassau, while attempting to run the blockade
on South Santee river, South Carolina. Her
cargo consisted of three hundred and eight
sacks of salt and sundry other articles. This
schooner formerly belonged to Governor Wil
liam Aiken, of South Carolina. The United
States steamer Calhoun has captured on lake
Ponchartrain the rebel steamer Whitman ; the
same steamer has also captured the rebel
schooner Venus on the same lake. The letters
cargo consisted of two hundred and twenty
eight boles of cotton.
An expedition from the same steamer, Cal
houn, cut out the rebel gunboat Corphyas. She
was found in one of the bayons,secured,moored
and guarded by rebel troops. The U. S. ship
Susquehanna, on the 11th inst., captured the
rebel schooner Princeton, from Havana, bound
towards Matamoros. Her cargo consisted of
drugs, dry goods, provisions, &c.
On the 9th inst. the brig Bainbridge captured
the schooner Bargany, and sent her to Bey
West for adjudication.
Commodore Reny, of the Mound City, has
captured and sent to Cairo the Clara Dolson,
one of the largest, handsomest and finest rebel
steamers on the river.
Flag officer Dupont writes to the Navy De
partment that the rebels through information
given by a negro who had been employed by
our army became aware of the absence of our
froops from Hutchinson's Islead, made a de
scent upon Mrs. March's plantation, surround
ed the house, and with ferocity characteristic
at all events of that part of the south, mur
dered in cold blood a large number of contra
bands, who were awakened from their slumber
to fall ante the hands of infernal rebels.
Dispatches have been received to-day at, the
War Department from the army in front of
Richmond and from the valley of Virginia.—
As far as heard from all is quiet.
According to a general order, the supervision
of prisoners of war sent by Generals command-
log in the field, to posts or camps prepared for
their reception, is placed entirely under Col.
William Hoffman, third infantry commanding
General of prisoners, who is subject only to
orders of the War Department.
All matters in relation to prisoners will pass
through him. He will establish regulations
for issuing clothing to prisoners, and will direct
the manner in which all funds arising from
the saving of rations at prison hospitals or oth
erwise shall be accounted for and disbursed by
the regular disbursing officers—the depart
ments in providing under existing regulations
such articles as may be absolutely necessary for
the welfare of the prisoners.
He will select a position for camps for pris
oners or prison camps, and will cause plans and
estimates for necessary buildings to be prepared
and submitted to the Quartermaster General,
upon whose approval they will be erected by
officers of the Quartermaster's Department.
He will if practicable visit the several prison
camps once a month.
Loyal citizens who may be found among the
prisoners of war confined on false accusation
or through mistake may lay their cases before
the Commissary General of prisoners who will
submit them to the Adjutant General.

EN. BURNSIDE'S ARRIVAL AT NEWBER
Extensive Military Preparations
ARRIVAL OF ANOTHER PRIZE SCHOONER
The steamer Hazee, from Newbern on the
17th, and Hatteras on the 19th, arrived at this
Port this afternoon. She reports having seen
a large steamer ashore off Loggerhead Inlet,
with the sea breaking over her. She was a
brig rigged vessel of about one thousand tons,
with a Walking beam engine.
The steamer York for Port Royal Put into
Hatteras Inlet with her smoke stack disabled.
Hon, W. A. Graham having declined, Z. B.
Fence has been nominated by the opposition
party for Governor of North Carolina.
A force of our troops from Newbern had dis
persed a rebel force some six miles above on the
opposite side of the Nense—destroyed their
fortifications and brought in Capt. Latham a

The Hazel spoke the Matanzas off the Dela

entertained for her safety.
The prize schooner Mary Stewart, of Nassau,

FROM SOUTHERN PAPERS.
On Thursday morning, at nine o'clock, the
enemy's cavalry, followed by infantry, entered
Ashland. Our troops, quarter masters and
commissaries, and even our pickets, had with
drawn, leaving valuable stores behind, inclu
ding cars filled with flour,&c. The village was
swarming with the people of the neighborhood
and negroes, who were helping themselves to
the public stores.
Mr. Critcher, of Westmoreland, and Mr.
Grimes, of King George, assumed authority to
order about forty negroes to push the cars
about one hundred and fifty yards to the point
of descent, whence they would run three miles
toward Richmond ; but after removing eleven
cars to the point, the Yankee cavalry dashed
into the village, and Meows. Critcher and
Grimes escaped unpuisued.
Burial of General Ashby.
The appearance of the late General Turner
Ashby as he lay in his coffin at the Parish
House, Charlottsville, is thus described :
"He lay there as if a gentle slumber had fal
len upon him, his physiognomy indicating re
solution, determination and firmness—heavy,
black eyelashes and eyebrows, long black and
thick flowing beard and moustache, prominent
forehead, showing quick perception and
thought, dark complexion, and an honest Vir
ginia face. He was about forty years of age."
Rebel Accounts of the Rebel Raid on
The Richmond Despatch of the 14th instant
contains a lengthy and most exaggerated ac
count of the recent bold raid of Stewart's Cav
alry on Tunstall's Station and the rear of Gen.
McClellan's army. We have not room for this
specimen of Rebel exaggeration, but the fol
lowing concluding paragraphs sums up the re
Once more within our lines all went merry
as as marriage bell. Quickly the dirty, weary
hand sped along the Charles City road, dawn
revealed them to our pickets, and they entered
our camps faint and famished, but the noblest
band of heroes that ever bestrode a charger or
drew a battle-blade for their birth-right as free•
"What, then, was the general result ?"
asked we of a wearied, dusty trooper, watering
his jaded and faithful animal by a roadside
spring. "The result," answered he, proudly,
but mgch exhausted, "the result ? We have
been in the saddle from Thursday morning until
Saturday noon, never breaking rein or breaking
fast ; we have whipped the enemy wherever he
dared to appear, never opposing more than
equal forces ; we have burned two hundred wagon
Laden with valuable store, ncrik or fired three large
transports, captured three hundred horses and mules,
lots of side arms, Bro., brought in one hundred and sev
enty prisoners, four atruers, and many negroes, killed
and wounded scores of the enemy—pleased Stewart,
and had one killed—poor Capt. Latanel This is
the result, and $3,000,000 cannot cover the Fed
eral loss in goods alone. As to myself," said he,
mounting and trotting away, "I wouldn't have
missed the trip for one thousand dollars—his
tory cannot show such another exploit as this
of Stewart's 1" He spoke the truth, honestly
and roughly, as a true soldier serving under
an incomparable leader. More words are not
now needed—the whole country is astonished
and applauds—McClellan is disgraced—Stewart
and his troopers are now forever in history.
The "valuable transports" burned were two
schooners loaded with hay, and the wagons
burnt did not exceed fifty. Each wagon hav
ing six horses or mules, had they burnt 200 as
claimed they would have captured 1,200 horses
and mules ' instead of 300, which is all they
profess to have taken back with them. They
in reality captured 100 prisoners, mostly wag
oners and negroes, and less than 200 horses.
The whole of the property destroyed was
worth about $lOO,OOO, instead of $3,000,000,
as the 'dispatch reports. The scores of the
enemy "killed and wounded," did not exceed
a dozen, and most of these were unarmed
teamsters and the sick soldiers in a railroad
train. The cavalry with which they had a
skirmish near Hanover Court House consisted
of three companies only.
