ON Sunday morning of last week, at so
early hour, a party of men from Sunbury dis
turbed the house of George Hoey, about a
mile from town, which resulted in the killing
of Thomas Morton by Hoey, by a shot gun
wound in the back. Hoey was arrrested and
committed to prison for trial.
A GUTMAN who left Frederick yesterday
morning, says that every house, stable and
barn, within twelve miles of the battle field, is
filled with our wounded. A large number are
at Frederick aid Ilagerstown. In some places
booths have been constructed to protect the
wounded from the weather.

Orta or THE German Comma located in Cincin
nati, has adopted a stringent rule, by which he
will acknowledge no one as a citizen who left
the German States without having first rendered
the military service which is demanded of all
citizens of that country. It is well known that
thousands of Germans left the Fatherland pur
posely to escape the draft at home, so that
those who thus run away from one duty, just
jump out of the fyring pan into the fire.
lassuovs Wortummt.—The employees in the
blacksmiths' department of the Pittsburg, Fort
Wayne and Chicago railroad shops, Allegheny
city, have unanimously resolved themselves into
an association to support the families of any of
their number in the event of their being drafted
into the service of the United States. In some
of the large shops mulmanuractories in this vi
cinity, the adoption of the same plan would be
productive of the most beneficial results. We
submit it for the consideration of those inter
Hortiunslicanza.—On Friday night of week
before last, a man named John Clinton was
found lying on the railroad track, at Industry
Station, Beaver county, with his throat cut
from ear to ear. The murderer to hide his
guilt bad placed the body on the track, think
ing that the next passing train would mangle
it to such a degree that no trace of the mur
der would be apparent ; but he failed in that,
for the train in passing had only crushed the
arm of deceased, thereby disclosing the fact
that the man had been actually murdered.
Ms 18= EMT. PENNA. Mrtm.s..—This regi
ment is one of the very best which has march
ed from the Capital. It is made up of four
companies from Bradford, two or three from
Luserne, and the balance frem Columbia and
Montour Counties. The field officers are all
men of ability and military experience. Col.
Johnson has seen more than a year's active ser
vice, and bears the soars of the battle-field.
Lieut. Col. John F. Means has had many years
experience as commander of a battalion of State
Militia under the old mills system, which was
much more perfect than our later militia
system. Major Samuel H. Newman, for
merly a Captain in the 106th Penn. regiment,
who gallantly led his company through seve
ral battles, the last of which was at Fair Oaks,
and on account of bad health was compelled to
resign command of his company for a time, is
an officer who will never shrink from duty, and
who has the ability and experience to render
efficient service to a new regiment. The men
of this regiment left their homes under the call
of the Governor for the defence of the State,
but without hesitation, while the battle was
raging fiercely at Sharpsburg, they marched di- 1
raptly to Hagerstown by order of Gen. Reynolds,
to order to reach Williamsport in time to aid
in preventing the enemy from crossing the Po
tomac, but the enemy had suoceded in crossing
he night before their arrival, and have made,
their way back with their shattered army into
Virginia. While these men have been prevent
ed by the retreat of the enemy from participa•
Ong in an engagement, they are entitled to
the credit of having done their whole duty.
We notice among them many prominent and
influential men, lawyers, merchants, &c. As
captain of one company, we notice E. 0. Good
rich, Ed. of the Bradford Reporter. Of another I.
N. Evans, a lawyer of Bradford, as Lieutenant ;
Jas. Medals°, a lawyer end coal operator, and
in the ranks ; N. 0. Elsbree, Register and Re.
corder, Hon. H. W. Tracy, canditate for Con
gress, 0. L. Ward, Esq., attorney at law, M.
H. Case, candidate for District Attorney of
Bradford Co., with many others of the best citi
zens and business men of the northern section
of the state. We hazard nothing in writing
that in case of actual invasion, Pennsylvania
could readily muster one hundred thousand of
the beet of her citiaane for her defence, at the
tap of the drum.
iiincllbronana will be moved from Chambers
burg aid Ragerstown every day until the mill-
tie have all been returned to their homes.—
The removal of all these troops will of course
involve much labor.
Foa ms 84m.—Capt. J. J. Vaughn is now
in this city, having received orders to recruit for
the veteran 84th regiment. Capt. V. has had a
large experience as an officer, and is fully capa
ble to lead a company. We recommend him to
those who desire to enter the service.
OIATION.—Each member is earnestly requested
to send this day to the rooms of the Society a
tin can to be filled with tomatoes for the use
of the sick and disabled soldiers during the
coming winter, a lady member having gener
ously offered to have them filled on Tuesday,
the 23rd inst., provided the cans are furnished.
ALMOST EVERY DAY witnesses some drunken
brawl in or near a notorious rum shop in Third
street, and yet this place is allowed to continue
in operation, all the same as if it was decent
and orderly. To-day the whole neighborhood
of Third and Walnut streets was annoyed by
the profanity and viulence of two inebriates,
who reeled from this liquor-hell—but it has to
be endured, because there seems to be no cor
rection of the evil. It is about time that the
neighbors petition the Judge of the Quarter
Sessions in this respect.
ABILIST OF A DMITIRTER- —Corporal Gratz of
the City Zouaves, arrested a deserter from the
Rebel army, serving under Gen. Lee, last even
ing at Bridgeport, and brought him to this city.
The prisoner alleges he deserted from) the rebels
at Harper's Ferry on Monday night hot. He
is a ragged looking specimen of humanity—
filthy in person and desperate in mein. If he is
a deserter, the first duty he should have per
formed after leaving the rebel ranks, was due
to his person in the way of cleansing, for his
filth is alone sufficient to condemn him in the
eyes of clean people.
The SURGEON /X CRAM of the wounded now
in this city, is constrained to appeal to the
ladies of Harrisburg for supplies of lint. The
quantity used in the various hospitals is im
mense, while the supply seems to have been
falling off for the past few days. Will the
ladies, old and young, see to it, that our hos-
pitals are well supplied with the necessary
article. The lint can be deposited at David
McCormick's, Market street, adjoining Adams
Express office, who will see that it is conveyed
to the different hospitals. Let this appeal be
not neglected.
rived here last evening. The regiment is
commanded by Col. Jeremiah Fritz, and num
bered about 860 men, fully uniformed and
equipped, and presented a very creditable ap
pearance. On leaving on Capitol hill, they
were drawn up in line and . were addressed by
the Colonel, who stated that he reported to the
Adjutant General's office, and was informed
that their services were not required, and that
they would receive transportation to Philadel
phia at nine o'clock this morning. The recep

THE ORD= ton HOSol.—Yesterday afternoon
orders were issued to break up the military
gimps on the Capitol grounds, and prepare
transportation for the purpose of conveying
the men to the different localities in which they
had organized in obedience to the summons of
the Governor for services on the border of the
State. The scene on the Capitol ground was at
once one of activity and preparation. Soldiers
were busy in packing their knapsacks; arms were
gathered and returned to the Arsenal, and In a
very short time the men were on the march to
the depot. One train East left with a large num
ber of troops early in the evening, and other
trains were to follow during the night, in differ
ent directions, laden with the same diacription
of freight.
The men who have promply answered the
summons of Gov. Curtin, even if they never see
any other military service will have a lasting
satisfaction. It was no fault of theirs that they
did not get face to face with the enemy. They
are not to blame that they did not get into bat
tle. They were here for that duty, ready to go
to the border or beyond it—and for that they
deseve all honor and praise.
found 'sorrow that we record the death of Capt.
James S. Colwell—of the "Carlisle Fencibles,
Seventh Regiment, Pennsylvania Reserves—
who fell whilst gallantly leading his men in
the battle of Wednesday. In the beginning of
the war he volunteered his services to his coun
try, and was present with and participated in
all the severe battles which will immortalize in
history the names of the Pennsylvania Reserves.
As an officer, Capt. Colwell was conspicuous for
his undaunted courage and coolness under eve
ry circumstance, and always commanded the
love and confideno.) of his men. In private
lite he was known as an accomplished gentle.
man, an erudite lawyer, and a faithful friend.
His appearance was one of dignity and noble- .
nese. A tall, slender and erect figure, with a
striking and expressive action, told the manner
of man that dwelt within. A forehead high
and full, and an eye of fire and mouth of stern
resolution, showed him to be a marked, intel
ligent and daring soul. But he has fought his
last fight and 'no sound shall awake him to
glory again.' Bravely and generously he strove
to uphold our blest ensign, dimmed with the
blight of disunion and shame, and he lived to
see the demon of secession writhing beneath the
heal of Liberty and the flag he loved so well
unfurled aloft in triumph to the breeze. His
last efforts will be appreciated and a grateful
people will delight to do honor to his name.
Capt. Cormium was a native of Shippeneburg,
and a law•partner of IL P. McCune, Egg. He
was widely known in his profession, in which
he occupied a foremast rank. He was about
forty years of age and leaves a wife and several

SANFORD'S °puts Hausa—The forward march
on Third street nightly, are the throngs that
visit this Institution. We may well say, what
would the people do with themselves after
dark if it were not for Sanford. He nightly
presents a great bill of entertainment—one that
commands the attention and respect of all who
witness the performance. The soldier's heart
is gladdened with the loud inspiring airs.—
Father, mother, brother, all have compliments
bestowed upon them. The music at Sanford's
is in accordance with the times. The selection
of songs, the fame, the Jokes, the bonmote, &c.,
are all gotten up in a Virginia manner, and
never fail to make a hit. By all means, to
spend an evening, go to Sanford's, and take
your ladies, as this is the only place in the city
where ladies frequent.
An accident occurred about three o'clock on
Saturday afternoon on the North Central rail
way, which resulted in the breaking up of five
or six cars, and the detention of the regular
trains for about three hours. It appears from
the statement of a gentleman who was there
that a freight train bound south had in its
centre an old platform car loaded with bark,
and when at the point of accident that car broke
in the centre and fell on the track. The train
was going at the usual rate of speed, and four
or five coal cars and one house car loaded with
flour were piled upon one another and nearly
all broken to pieces. The car containing the
flour was crushed and its contents scattered
over the road. No personal injury was sus
rained as far as could be ascertained. The pas
senger train south, due in Baltimore, arrived at
that point at itszsual time, but the road was
so blocked up that it could not proceed. For
tunately, the accident occurred at a sidling,
which was cleared after a labor of three hours,
and the train due at halt-past six reached Bal-
timore at haf•past nine. The track was cleared
of the wreck during the evening, and yesterday
the trains were again regular.
