CAMP NEAR GAINEKVELLE STATION, 'VA
October 12, 1864.
EDITOR Trrroitziert---Dear Sir had
atirring times here since Monday. There are
still small parties of Moseby's mounted pirates
around here, watching an opportunity to tear
up the railroad between this point and the
"Gap," at a part of the line that is not guard
ed, between Company D on the extreme right,
and the 202d's pickets beyond that point.
Near the town or Salem, still farther up,
they succeeded in taking out a rail, (on Mon
day morning,) and by reversing it, and fitting
it in place again, they succeeded in throwing
off an engine and some iron and ties on the
construction train, down a bank some dis
tance, and the second engine following was
also thrown from the track, and tumbled
down the bank, killing the superintendent of
construction, a fireman, and severely wound
ing the engineer. These reports we have
from men coming up the road, and there must
be some truth in them, for of the five or six
trains that ran down on Sunday, none of the
construction trains passed our post since,
their return trip to Alexandria, as Is custom
ary, the same.evening or following morning.
Yesterday, Tuesday, was a day of excite
ment here. First, in the morning word was
passed along the entire line for a man from
each post to hasten to the Captain's quarters,
in light marching trim, with one day's rations,
to go on a scouting expedition a few miles up
the road. beyond company D's picket line, as
it was reported that some of Moseby's mon
were seen prowling around the woods in the
vicinity. Nine men from company I, the.
~a tua from K and D, with two officers, cony
posed the' force. The entire squad was
placed in command of Lieut. Hammill, of
company D. They had not gone over a
distance of two miles before they observed
a rail reversed, (bottom side up,) and again
Placed nicely in position, without a single
Spike to hold it, awaiting an approaching
train, expecting to see it run otr the track,
and murder, indiscriminately, every one urg.
fortunate enough to be aboard. Ain't .this
proof positive that we have a chivalrous
enemy to fight? Well, as the men under
command of Lieut H were endeavoring
to repair the mischief, the sound of horse
men approaching was heard; and, running up
the bank to an elevation, one of the men gave
the alarm that three rebel cavalrymen were
within gun-shot, when the entire force got
into line of skirmishers, and waited for the
thieves, who made their appearance, discharg,
ing three shots at our men, without harming a
single man. Lieut. Hammill ordered his men
to fire, and they gave the scamp a volley,
which drove them into a dense thicket, and
nothing more was seen of them during the
forenoon. The men were then withdrawn, as
the force was considered inadequate; and the
12th New York cavalry coming to the rescue,
hunted the "chivalric sacred soiler.s" till noon,
but without success:
When our men came home there were two
classing, sure enough—Updegrove and
Bankeig Where were' they? Their com
rades had mouth= "scratching" upthe bank
-- . --both returning the fire of the Johnnies,
but saw nothing of them after that ! Strange
Serious faces were then observed alnung us,
for the next half hour—could they have been
shot, or were they captured?—neither, thank
Heaven ! "There they come !" shouted one
of the men, as Ellis and Banker came leisurely
strolling down the road. Banker was under
Updegrove's charge, and well that it was so;
for Ellis is an old Virginia campaigner, and
shouted to Banker—" Dodge, August, dodge,"
which Banker did, just in time to get out of
the way of'a rebel pill that barely grazed his
head! Li• Fut. Hammill Was fcritruiate ereugh
to cut the acquaintance of a chunk of lead that
came whizzing by, in close proximity to his
In the afternoon, a stronger party was sent
down the line in, charge of Capt. W. 0.
Smith, of company D, and my friend, Lieut.
S. 0. lltOurdy, of company L—Capt..S. taking
charge of the reserves, and 2cl Lieut. S. 0.
Mee. of the line of skirmishers. Nothing
was seen or heard, however,
of the enemy ;
but on their return home in the evening, our
men espied a cavalry company in the distance,
and immediately fell into line of battle ! The
cavalry approached, intending to show fight,
when officers Smith and Itreardy instantly
recognized the Union accoutrements they car
ried, and instantly waved their hats towards
them. They came thundering down the road
nevertheless, to satisfy themselves, and were
as glad as our friends themselves were, to
discover a mistake of this nature in time.
Well, we hold an election at the Captain's
quarters yesterday, which resulted in a victory
to our cause, although the vote polled was a
light one; considering that we have but 85
effective men with us, and 19 of that number
were detailed for scouting duty. The ball
was opened in the following style :
FOB JUDGES OF ELECTION
Captain G. W. Miles, Union, had 27
Lieut; S. O. McCurdy, Union, " 15
Captain A. H. Baum, Union. " 19
Randall M. Barclay, Opposition, " 21
Corporal H. Swartz, Opposition, " 9
Joseph Lareimer, Opposition, "
Messrs, Miles, Barclay and Baum having
the highest number of votes, were duly de
clared the judges ; and Messrs. John Wolff
and R. M. Typer, (Union) clerks, by acclama
tion. The election was held in Capt. Miles'
quarters—the officers sworn in, and -the bal
lot-boxes (consisting of four ac - cr.: shoes, two
old shoes, one old hat, one new hat, one new
military cap, and one tin pan,) were placed in
position, and the voting commenced. The
election was conducted in the strictest man
ner, every man sworn that could not produce
a tax receipt, and the voters on ago strictly
examined—with the following result :
Congress—G F Miller, 17; Wm H Miller, 11.
Assembly—H C Alleman, 17; Daniel Kaiser,
17; J Wesley Awl, 10: C H Ziegler, 10.
Prothonotary—J C Young, 16; H Techt
Begister—G M Mark, 16; G L Mytinget 3.
Commissioner—H . Hartman, 16; Abram
Directors —Philip Moyer, 16; J J . Wallace, 3.
Auditor—A Slentz, 16; B Stiles Duncan, 3.
Three Union votes we were obliged to
throw out, on account of being put together
improperly, and also one copperhead vote.
Fifteen or twenty, at least, of the Union men
belonging to Company 7 are either sick or de
tailed and no doubt voted elsewhere. And if
we are spared till the November. klection takes
place, we will give a. good occount of our
selves, for we have quite a number of Union
voters with us belonging to other counties,
some of whom voted yesterday, and others de
clined. For instance the vote for Franklin
county, resulted as follows:
For Congress—Gen Win II Koontz, 1,
(Union;) Gen A H Coffroth, 3 (Opposition.)
Assembly—A K M'Clure 7; James Roath, 7;
J Xi:Dowell Sharpe, 3 (Opposition;) William S
York, Congress—Joseph Bailey, 1.
Cumberland, Congress—Joseph Bailey, 1.
Perry, congress- 7 A J Glossbrenner, 1.
Clearfield, Congress—Wm Bigler, 1.
What the vote of the other companies
amounts to I am unable to state at present,
but have no doubt that the men will all give a
good account of themselves the same as com
pany I did, by reference to the vote just had.
Companies A, B and C came clown from
Manassas to-day, and will now strengthen our
posts and extend them further into the
enemy's country. At least four trains of
cavalry have paSsed here, since "I sat'down to
Alike, and from present appearances the
Johnnies will make themselves scarce, in a
hurry! To-day the pickets chased a party of
five of the enemy, and the way they skedad
dled through the fields, and made for a pine
thicket, was a caution to Fleetfoot the Indian
we read about in days of yore. There is now
a sufficient cavalry force in our front to pre
gent these cowardly sneaks from doing further
I am under many obligation.s to a friend for

We were rejoiced to receive a bundle of
TELEGRAPHS to day (of the Bth inst.,) which
came here from Alexandria. Many thanks to
to you, Mr. Editor—for in less than five
minutes time they were circulated along the
line, and could not" be "borrowed for a

AUCTlON.—Auctions are not of modern in
troduction, but can be traced through history
from time immemorial. The auction marts
of ancient times did not, so far as we are in
-formed, differ from the . general auction busi
ness of the present day ; but we wish to
impress upon the
. mind of the reader, that
there is a great difference in the character of
auction sales, and at no time in the history of
our country, *so far as our experience goes,
has this difference been so great. Auction
houses which purchase goods to provide for
their own sales, are not the resort of mer
chants who understand their business. The
high price that speculation and other causes
have run goods up to, and the uncertainty
of the future development of things, has in
duced some merchants and speculators in our
seaboard cities, whd have been carrying a
large amount of goods on hand, to reduce
their stock, and through this disposition a
number of sales called positive auction sales
have occurred. 'These are the character of
auctions at which goods can be obtained
cheap. These goods are sold by the package
and piece, and of course would not suit those
who purshase for their own consumption.
C. L. Bowman has just returned from Phila
delphia and New York, with a large assort
ment of dry goods, bought at these auctions,
which he will open for public inspection to
day and to-morrow, (Monday and Tuesday,
October 17th and 18th.) They comprise, in
ladies' dress goods, poplins, French merino,
wool plaids, silks, shawls, cloakings, 8,7 c , &c.

yard ; Merrimac calico at 37 cents per yard.
