We left the Hagerstown pike near. Mercers

through a small place called'Shirapatowtt, en
camping for dinner in a wood cloSe fo A tCav
alry company's encampment. The. company
in question is styled "Warren Scouts," com
manded by Capt. Warren. We are at
point just - twelve miles from the POtainac
river, on the road to Clearspring, Md. We
will leave this road during the afternoon, and
head for Greencastle. I must take some din

our camp, this evening, wherever that maybe.

After leaving Shimpstown camp, contrary to
the expectation, we marched only two miles
further, and encamped at a village styled
Camp" Hill, directly in front of a prominent
knob of Little Cove Mountain, known as
Casey's Knob. The mountain is about two
miles distant westward, and on its summit is
one of a line of signal stations which extend
clear down to the Potomac. river. ..:We.en
camped early and shortly after 4. o'clock we
saw men signaling from the top of din ICtiob
with a signal flag, no doubt informing' silme

..I inquired of a lady, "Did the rehs do any
mischief when they came through
_here last

stores and fitole as many horses as they , druid
lay hands on!"
On passing a Small place called Clay-lick
Hall, I aceosted a gentleman with, "How far
distant is the Potomac river from this point ?"
"Twelve miles, sir." "Now answer me a ques
tion in return," said he; "Hew many Union
votes have you in this moving, army, here?"
A comrade at, my elbow replied, "About two
thirds of ' 3 the soldiers in these' two regiments
are ready and willing to vote for Thick-Ara

the truth! .
