GEN. CAMERON IS iri Washington city, the
guest of the Secretary of the Treasury. He
has had a highly satisfactory interview with
the President, and was received by the Gov
ernment in a manner to prove the high appre
ciation of his worth and services.
IT WAS RAPORTBD on the street to-day, that
Capt. James Gowan had been elected Lieut. Col.
of one of the newly organized Cavalry Regi
mente now forming in Camp Curtin. We hope
this is true, as the Captain hes the grit to win
glory If he is only given a proper opportunity.
SALE ON PRATT'S IRON WORKS.—The Iron works
of Messrs. Pratt & Son, in the lower part of the
city, have been sold to Messrs. Charles A. Bailey,
& Bro. & Co., who will fit them up immediately
and set them in motion. These works have
been lying idle for years past, and been an eye
sore to the business men in the city. We are
glad, therefore, that these enterprising men
have purchased this establishment. They will
employ a large number of men. This firm has
won, for itself an extensive and a splendid repu
tation, not alone for the magnitude of its ope
rations, but the liberality with which it con
dusts all its business enterprises. With this
extension of an already extensive business, we
of course date the enlarged prosperity of Har

sure, to-day, of shaking by the hand Lieut. D.

as the recruitiug officer of the Third Regiment
Heavy Artillery. What rendered Lieut. Chain
bars more welcome to our sanctum is the fact
that he finished kis trade as a printer in our es
tablishment, leaving us with credit as a faithful
and industrious compositor. Since then, Lieut.
C. devoted himself to the study and the prac
tice of the law, which he renounced to take up
arms to defence of his country. He has many
friends in this city, and cannot fail to draw to
the standard which he now raises among his
old comrades, many excellent and effective re

CAPTURE OF &MEOWS , PICKPOCKETS AT TILE
DEPOT.—Counterfeit Money Discovered.—No less
than nine different individuals answering to the
following names : Charles English, Wm. Rich
ards, Oscar Church, James Richards, Wm,
Walters, James Coppy, John Smith, Emanuel
Christ and Henry Creamer, were arrested last
evening in and around the depots, under the
suspicion of being pickpockets. All the indi
viduals above named, except Christ and Crea
mer, gave their residence as Philadelphia, Bal
timore, Washington and New York, and
judging from their movements, we have no
doubt that they congregate around the depot,
for no other purpose than to relieve strangers
and passengers of their money. Several pockets
were picked last night. Among the unfortunate
was a widow who had gone for the remains of
her husband who died in the army and whose
body she was taking home. She lost a pocket
book containing some $6O, a doctor's certificate
of her husband's death, and several other papers.
Considerable money was found on all the arrest
ed parties, pnd persons who have been victim
ized, had better examine the prisoners in jail,
where they were ( ommitted for a further bear
Emanuel Christ, one of the above, says that
he belongs to Pinegrove, came here with his cap
tain to go into camp ; that he is a drafted man
and knows nothing of the others. If this is
correct, he will no doubt be discharged.
Henry Creamer, who locates himself also at
Pinegrove, had thirty-two dollars of counterfeit
money In his possession, consisting of one $2
counterfeit note on the Union Bank of Dela
ware, and six $6 notes on the Farmers' and
Mechanics' Bank of Kent county, at Chester
town, Maryland. The notes seem to be tamed
from the five dollar plate of the Farmers' and
Mechanics' Bank of Philadelphia, and is a good
imitation. The latter was committed to await
his trial at the next court.
Officer Campbell, through whose instrumen
tality these arrests were made, deserves great
credit for his industry in trying to rid the city
of a set of pickpockets, counterfeiters and
scoundrels, who infest this vicinity, and who are
robbing citizens and soldiers 'almost daily. We
hope he may be properly recognized and re
warded by the railroad companies, whose duty
it is to run these fellows from their depots.

WHAT COY= OP GATTING A "SUBSTITUTE."
Persons anxious to avoid the draft will see by
the following sp, cial notice that the act of pro
curing a substitute frees the latter, but leaves
the principal still subject to the draft:
WAR DIPARTHINT, WASHINGTON, D. C.,
Nov. 1, 1862.
"Hon. Silas Livermore, Guthrieville, Pa.:
"Sim:—ln reply to yours of the 27th ult.,
desiring to be informed of certain questions
appertaining to the draft, the Secretary of War
directs me to say that, when a drafted man
furnishes a substitute that is accepted, the two
change places. The principal is liable to an•
other draft, if made, just as he would be if he
had not been drafted at first, and the substitute
is bound by the first draft of the principal
'wit as if he had been drafted himself.
C. P. BUCKINGHAM,
Brig. Gen. and A. A. G."
The War Department wiltalso hereafter insist
that drafted men, when procuring substitutes,
shall obtain the consent of the substitutes to
join the old regiments. This is the method
adopted by the Department te bridge the diffi
culty of filling up the old regiments. Hence
forth all substitutes will be compelled to enter
the old regiments, to remain for nine months.
With this understanding the government will
prefer substitutes to the original drafted men.
GILT Fins.—Duiraction of ago Second Largest
Eaw-Mill in the World, and about Four Hundred
Thousand fed of Lumber.—About half-past twelve
o'clock on Saturday night the immense saw-mill
of Langdon, Divia & Co., at the west end of
this borough, oommonly known as the " Big
Water Mill," was discovered to be on fire, and
before the flames could be checked it was burned
to the water's edge, together with about four
hundred thousand feet of sawed lumber. The
night was excessively cold, and it was only by'
the utmost exertions that our firemen and citi
zens could prevent the flames from extending
further into the millions of feet of boards piled
upon the acres adjacent. The flames spread
over the mill and consumed it re rapidly that
an attempt to save any part of it or its contents
was not to be thought of. The effort was made
to save the sawed lumber on •hand, and it was
remarkably successful. So great was the light
'caused by the conflagration that the streets of
the town were illuminated in every part, and
at Sunbury—forty miles distant—the light was
plainly visible upon the °loads. The mill ex
tended from the north bank of the river town
island, and contained about one hundred and
fifty saws. In size it was probably the largest
saw-mill in the world, and its number of saws
the second largest in the world. The loss is
estimated at $50,000. The property destroyed
was partly insured. All parties present agree
that the fire was the work of au incendiary.—

[Extract from a letter on the Battle Field.]
O a a • O o • • •
This battle (Antietam) hae been the most
sanguinary of the war, and the only one
fought with visible design and upon military
principles. The arrangement of our corps—
the overlooking position of the commanding
General—the sending into action of the right
and the left division—the closing up of the
centre, and final success—excites bewildering
admiraiiiJn, and carries the mind to the great
fields of Aneterlitz and Wagram, fought by
Na oleon. Of all this have I spoken. The
heart history of such a conflict, purchased by
the life and blood of twenty thousand men,
must be found in the hospitals. War has its
glories—but it has its ten thousand demons
in these human tortures, that make the eye
balls ache—the heart bleed—the lips palsy,
and the brain reel. The eight is at first posi
tively unendurable. The life-blood of some
is still trickling away in silent calmness—
while the dissevered limbs and maniac brain of
others give rise to sounds God grant I may not
But ye mothers who here seek a son—or
wives a husband—or sisters a brother—or sons
a father—know and be consoled that even here
the hand of mercy is watchful, and better care
is bestowed upon your loved ones than might
at first seem possible. It was in the hospital
where rested the gallant Booker, that I learn
ed the history of those mythical words so often
seen and so little understood, "S. T.-1860—
X." Anything alleviating the sufferings and
saving the lives of our soldiers, is a national
blessing. I witnessed some astonishing results
from this article.
It is well known the effect of burnt gunpowder
and excitement is thirst, which added to the
loss of blood In the wounded, creates the ne
cessity of a reviving stimulant. In this par
ticular hospital, the physicians were allowing
their patients to drink Plantation Bitters, other
wise called S. T.-1860—X, and although the
wounded are most numerous here—this di
vision having opened the fight at 5 in the
morning—the men were mostly composed, and
there was very little fainting. The article acts
upon the stomach and nerves in a most
incomprehensible manner, superior to brandy,
and without subsequent stupefying reaction.
It originated in the West Indies, composed of
the celebrated Calisaya Bark, Boots, Herbs,
&c.; all preserved in St. Croix Bum—the S. T.
—lB6O—X being a secret ingredient, not yet
revealed to the public It is principally
recommended for want of appetite, disordered
liver, inteimittent fevers, stomachic difficulties,
&c. I understand it was somewhat known in
the Southern States previ US to the war, and it
appeals an agent of Jefferson Davis recently
applied to the proprietors for the privilege
to make it for hospital purposes during the
war„ o which they made the following reply:
New Yoax, Jan. 16th, 1862.
Dear Sir.—ln reply to your communication,
offering us "Fifty thousand dollars for the re
cipe and right to make the Plantation Bitters
for your hospital purposes during the war,"
we beg to say, your price is a liberal one, con
sidering it would cost us nothing to comply,
and that otherwise we can derive no revenue
from the Southern States ; but sir, our duties
to ourOovernmeot and our ideas of consisten
cy would not allow us to entertain it, although
it might please us to assuage the sufferings
of your misguided followers.

In the Name and by the Authority
COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,
ANDILOW G. CURTIN,
GOVERNOR OF THE SAID COMMONWEALTH,
Wassises, It is a good thing to reader thanks
unto God for all Hie mercy and loving kind
Therefore, I, ANDIUM G. CURTIN, Governor
of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, do re
commend that THUNDAY, THE 27th DAY OF
NOVEMBER NEM, be set apart by the people
of this Commonwealth, as a day of solemn Prayer
and Thanksgiving to the Almighty :—Giving
Him humble thanks that He has been gracious
ly pleased to protect our free institutions and
Government, and to keep us from sickness and
pestilence—and to cause the earth to bring
forth her increase, so that our garners are
choked with the harvest—and to look so favor
ably en the toil o' His children, that industry
has thriven among us and labor had its reward;
and also that He has delivered us from the
bands of our enemies—and filled our officers
and men in the field with a loyal and intrepid
spirit, and given them victory—and that He
has poured out upon us (albeit unworthy) other
great and manifold blessings :
Beseeching Him to help and govern ne in His
steadfast 'ear and love, and to put into our
minds good desires, so that by His continual
help we may have a right judgment in all
And especially praying Him to give to
tian churches grace to hate the thing which is
evil, and to utter the teachings of truth and
righteousness, declaring openly the whole
counsel of God :
And most heartily entreating Him to bestow
upon our civil rulers, wisdom and earnestness
in council, and upon our military leaders, zeal
and vigor in action, that the tires of rebellion
may be quenched—that we, being armed with
His defence, may be preserved from all perils,
and that hereafter our people, living in peace
and quietness, may, from generation to genera
reap the abundant fruits of His mercy,
and with joy and thankfulness praise and mag
nify His holy name.
Given wider my hand and the great seal of the
State, at Harrisburg, this Twentieth day of
October, in the year of our Lord one thousand
eight undred and sixty-two, and of the
Commonwealth the eighty-seventh.
