Ma. Eorros. :—At one o'clock yesterday,
Lieut. Colonel Alleman limed marching ordtrs
to the regiment. In twenty minutes after the
orders were issued, the regiment was marching.
We were halted at our present camp one mile
south of Fort Ethan Allen. The camp has
been named "Camp Dmiphin," in honor of
the birth place of the majority of the regiment.
The Hon. Samuel B. Thomas, Deputy Secre
tary of Pennsylvania, in company with several
distinguished military officers, reached- onr
camp this morning bringing with him a beau
tiful State flag. ; The 127th, Regiment • was
formed by. CoL Alleman, into a hollow square,
and upon the-approach of the State colors, the
whole regiment came to a present arms, and
the Band played. a salute. Col. Thomas then
presented a most beautiful stand of State colors
to the regiment. The following is an extract
of his speech. He said :
Col. Alleman.—l feel proud of the privilege
of presenting to yon, sir, as commander ot
this regiment, this flag. • Your brave men have
entered into the service of their country of
their own free will and accord, while a great
majority of the men ot the army of the ao
called Southern Confederacy have been coerced
into the service. He thanked God that we
have such a noble army contending for such
pure and holy principles. He urged these men
to remember the inhuman conduct of the trai
tors toward our wounded and helpless prison
ers.* He hoped that they would all do their
whole duty in endeavoring to suppress this
wicked rebellion. He spoke in high terms of
the "Keystone State" and her sons, both living
He then presented the flag. His speech was
well timed and appropriate to the occasion.
The band then played "The Star Spangled
Banner" in most delightful strains tinder its
efficient leader, William A. =Ball, of your city.
Colonel Alleman then stepped forward
and received the! , flag, thanking Colonel
Thomas for the high compliment which
he paid to the regiment, and expressed
the gratitude of the brave. men of his
commaud, to Cloy. Curtin, for the beautiful tes
timonial of his friendship, and the generosity
of the "old Keystone State," to her absent sol
diers. He paid a very flattering. and deserved
compliment to Gov. Curtin, fur his energy, and
wisdom, and pronounced him at once, a states
man, a patriot and a hero. He said that Cloy.
Curtin has done and is doing more than any
man in the nation towards suppressing this un
holy rebellion. He paid a noble tribute to the
character, the discipline, the courage and. pa
triotism.of the men, etudpledged bie honor that
the dug should nos tss dishunorech ilifirsald bie
brave men would fight before it, behind it, be
neath it and all around it. fie paid a compli
ment to the industry and paaiotitun of Colonel
Thomas. His speech was chiste, patriotic and
appropriate. The baud then played "Hail to
the Chief." Colonel Alleman then gave the
colors into the hands of the color sergeant, with

DUB SIXTRICNTII DIBMICT.—There is nothing
more to be regretted, among the results of the
late election, than the defeat of , that able rep
resentative in Congress and true patriot, Hon.
Edward McPherson. His defeat, it is true, is
not regarded as finally settled, as an effort will
made to have the army vote of the district
accepted, add if that is donS, the result may
be changed. . The Gettysburg Sentinef gives the
majorities reported as follows: .
Army vote of Adams Co.. 167
Army vote of Franklin .
as far as ascertained... 148
Coffroth's majority.... 229
With the army vote of Fulton, Bedford and
Somerset counties to come in.
When.alll the circumstances are eonsidered,
it is rather surprising that Mr. McPherson ,re
ceived so large a vote as he did. The district
stretches along the Maryland line about one
hundred and thirtylmiles. Lee's invasion of
Maryland alarmed the people; by bringing war
to their doors. Stuart's raid through two
counties of the district created 'general gm
sternation, and this was increased be the losses
suffered from the stealing of. horses and other
depredations. Then the draft was proceeded
with, before the -- election, just far enough to
damage the adthinistration Cense. The Demo
cratic politlchnis promised to. Mop it, if they
carried the district. They invented all sorts of
stories abOut the emancipated negroes of the
Smith coming North, and these alarmed the
laboring classes. They represented that the
only way to prevent the rebels from making
new ralds in the district was to make a change
of tier Congressman. All these things had
their effect upon a population already excited
and alarmed to an extraordinary degree, and
the consequence was that Mr. litelmreon was
is the minoritrofthe voters that remained at
*Mu. If is quite detain," however, that if the
army vote of all ..the counties is received, he
b e proved to lave . a .decided majority of
gftsam tintil atts.

Destitute Condition of the Con
The Richmond Whig of the 20th, has an edi
torial which fully discloses the destitute condi
tion of the Confederate army in North-western
The Whig in this article says :
We refer to the subject again, not for the pur
pose of finding fault with the Government,
though it has been guilty of/unpardonable neg
lect, but to remind the people or their duty, In
the premises. Our information is derived freer
persons who have been with the army for some
months, and whose opportunities have been
such as to leave no doubt of the correctiontof
The health, zeal and discipline of the army
are all that the moat sanguine friend of our
holy ,cause could desire. Since their return to
Virginia, the troops have had ample time to
rest and recruit their strength, and their sup
plies of good beef and flour have been abun
dant The stragglers and absentees, including
many - of the sick and wounded, have rejoined
their several commands, and the army is
stronger to-day, in numbers, than it has been
at any time since it left the banks of the James
rivet. But it is not of the discipline, the health,
or the commissary department of the army thp,t
we propose to speak to-day, but of the desti
tute condition of the troops in regard to cloth
ing and shoes.
What, then, is their condition ? We assert
most emphatically and positively, that up to
the 15th day of this month, it was most deplo
rable. We do not mean to say that such Wig
the condition of the entire army, or of even a
majority of the troops; but that large numbers
of them were barefooted, in rags, and covered
with vermin, and that those in the hospitals at
Winchester were the victims of the most cruel
neglect. As already remarked, this informa
tion comes to us from such sources and in so
direct a way that. we feel authorized to assert,
in the most positive manner, that such is the
sad condition of - 1-.4g,e numbers of the troops
from all the States= be glorious conquerors,
too, at Richmond, at Manassas, in the Valley
and in Maryland. We are assured, moreover,
that any other statement, showing a more fa
vorable condition of the army, while it may be
gratifying to the public, is cruel by wrong to the
troops themselves, in that, it may lead the
people and the authorities to slacken their ef
forts to furnish the necessary supplies.
It may be asked, how is it that the troops
have become thus suddenly destitute ? The
answer is readily given. Having marched
from the James river to the Rappahannock,
they fought their waygrom that stream to the
Potomac, paw d into Maryland, reduced Har
per's Ferry, fought two great battle at Boons
boro' Gap, Sharpsburg, engaged in numberless
skirmishes, and returned to Virginia, all in
the space of one month. The weather was ex
tremely hot, and many of the men fell out by
the way ; others wore out their shoes, and
were unable to carry their baggage on barefoot
over stony turnpikes ; whilst others stripped
themselves of their knapsacks when they went
into the fight, and coming out at different
places were never able to recover them. b
In " the wear and tear" of battle. too, among
the chapparel and sharp rocks of the moun
tains, and along the hida and valleys, many
lost portions of the clothing they had on, and
emerged from the terrible conflict with little
else than trusty muskets and cartridge boxes.
Indeed, we learn from a gentleman, whospeake
from personal observation, that it was, no., un
common thing to pass men on the march whoee
miserable outfit was not sufficient to hide their
nakedness. Some were without shirts, others
had on the dirty remnant of a pair of pants,
without shoes, and almost without cape or
hats. Some were barefooted, other had on
ragged socks but no Shoes, while one man he
saw was destitute of cap and shoes; and bad bad
one leg of his pants torn entirely away Let it
be remembered, too, that many of these troope,
thus ragged and destitute, and limping along
on feet covered with stonebruisee, had been
reared up in luxury, and accustomed to all the
comforts which wealth and industry can supply.
But, bad as is the condition of the men ha
camp, those who were wounded and sent back
to the hospitals are still more unfortunate.—
Surgeons and medicines were sent up to Win
chester, to which point most of the sick and
wounded were taken, but up to the 16th inst.,
we are assured that the medical departnient
had not furnished a solitary cot, bedsack, sheet,
pillow, or change of clothing for these unfor
tunates. With the single exception of ,the
York Hospital, which was formerly occupied by
the Yankees, and where they had left a Om
plate outfit of hospital furniture, the siclAnd
wounded were huddled together upon the dirty
floor—in many instances without a wish ofotraw
between their aching bones and the hard plank!
At Hollingsworth Grove large numbers `were
placed under tent flies, with nothing to protect
them against the cold night air and driving
A few oases are reported where the patients
were as naked as babies just born, their scanty
clothing having been torn off to dress their
wounds, and brat - for s blanket borrowed from
a com rade they would have been wholly desti
tute of any covering save the narrow. fly that
had been !stretched above them. Such as were
fortunate enough to get into private quarters
werewell cared for ; but even the most wealthy
citizens of the town and country are but illy
prepared to provide for the sick and - wounded.
The lowervalley of the Shenandoah haillemi oc

eighteen months, aud the people have - hear

good women of Winchester had established hoe

sufferers ; but with every dispositiOn to st

lack of means, to relieve their destitute condi
