♦ Hand Mit at the Oversight of Military.
We heard a privetee soldier, a man who. has
done some hard fighting and who bears on his
person the marks of service—we heard this
eteran comment saroa.tically on the circuit
stances which attendedthe burning of Chain
bersburg. Said he: "When our troops attempt
to enter the most insignificant village in the
South, there 'is at least a show of resistance
made; saltpetre is burned and lead thrown at
the faces of the invader. In no instance have
the federal forees ever succeeded in taking
undisputed 'possession of any town half
is large as Chumbersbarg. The reason of
this is, that the rebet oonimanders of depart
,nents in the' South'are men and soldiers, ac
tive in the cense which they have espoused,
and capable for 'the work th-y assumed to per
form. With a Atijor General's headquartM's
it Chambersburg--With the experience . of in-
rasiotr fresh in.the Memory of the command
er of the Department of the Susquehanna-
with the knowledge of the plundering pro
clivities of the rebels nnforgotten, Chem
bersburg lay as defenceless as an infant in the
iap of whited or an idiot mother—a dazzling,
and a volui9hous temptation for the ravishieg,
foe. Who'Vras to blame for this ? Not the
citizens, because; with a Najor General in their
midst, it would have been prestimptnotts_ for
iivilians to discuss the means of defence.
Not the Government, because with a Major
General •and his staff of advisers, the Govern-:
ment had a right to presume all was righti--
all was safe. The Government and the pee i ple
have now heen directed, in the light of burn
ing Chambersburg, to the knowledge that
somebody has shamafttlly neglected an import
ant dutY, and tolluit neglect there is nowad
tied the Monument of the Charred remains of,
hundreds of former happy and prosperous :
homes. How long:will the people submit to
such fool-hardiness?" We _only repeat these
sarcastic comments of a Veteran. It is not to
be presumed that, in the midst of the gloom
which surrounds our people, they will be slow
to express their indignation of what is to all

The rebels are said to have • constructed

unlikely that they may keep us at bay for a
