HORRIBLE Accumwr.--Charies E., a young
son of Rev. Dr. Johnson, of Dickinson Col
lege, Carlisle, was killed on Tuesday after
noon. It appears that the ?ad was standing
in a freight car, with his head out of the Side
door, looking back, and as the car was run
ning in on the siding at Mr. Hoffer's coal
yard, one end of the door struck a post pro
truding over the track forcibly closing it and
and crushing the skull of the youth most hor
ribly. His death followed immediately.
LA:rm.—Since the above was put in type
we have received the following account of
the dreadful affair from an eye-witness: The
boy jumped into an empty freight car, which .
was being drawn out from the siding of the
ware house. The post of a coal bin along
side of the track had been pressed out with
the weight of coal. As the boy was standing
with his head out of, the open door of the oar,
while the oar was in . rapiti motion, the post of
the coal bin caught the door, and sliding it
shut, caught the boy's head, crushing out his
brains, and killed him instantly,
'RS:Prrrmon AMMON, one of-our o t
citizens, died at the residence of her son, Mr.
W. W. Boyer, in this city, on Tuesday evening
last. She was in the 78th year of her age at
the time of her death, and was for a great many
years an exemplary and zealous member of
the German Reformed Church. Thus are the
good dying everywhere and every day. Like
the sunshine which lights our paths, so the
light of those we love, is passing away, chased
by the shadow of death, beyond our vision.
The deceased, to those who knew her, was
beloved for the kindness of her heart, the
genial loveliness of her disposition, and the
unselfishness which is most fare and always
most beautiful in the aged. Long withdrawn
from the world, she lived, as it were, in seques
tered peace to die in Christian tranquility.
There are many who will mourn her death.
The funeral took place at 2 o'clock this after
AT a stated meeting of the Paxton Fire

CAMP SLOUGH, WEST ALEXANDRLI., VA.,
Sunday Evening, Dec. 4, 1864. f
ED/TOR TELEGRAPH—Dear company
with my friend Walter Hanche, clerk to Ad
jutant Reisinger, I spent an hour or two, with
profit and pleasure, in yisiting Fort Williams,
at the invitation of Lieut. W--, of Captain
Nevin's celebrated (Penna.) Battery I, re
cruited, principally, at Lancaster, Penna.
Fort Williams is situated about one mile'
from Camp Slough, west of Fort Ellsworth.
The latter fortification is scarcely a stone's
throw distant from our camp, perched on the
top of a considerable hill, say 150 feet above
the Potomac river. Williams is directly op
posite Lyons, the Accotink valley dividing the
distance, which is probably a mile and a
quarter from one fortification to the other.
The valley in question, at one period teeming
with fields of golden wheat, sweet, red clover,
and the "bright yellow corn," is now deso
late, fenceless and neglected—the populace
scattered and in arms against the Union, or
sleeping beneath the sod of the valley. The
Orange,and Alexandria railway passesthrough
its centre, to Manassas Junction, 27 miles,
and from thence the Manassas Gap road con
tinues through to Thoroughfare Gap, proba
bly 35 or 40 miles further, where the valley is
broken, as it were, by the crossing of the Blue
Ridge in its course across Virginia into North
Directly west of Williams, on the right, is
another substantial fortification styled
"Worth," just 1,050 yards distant. Fairfax
Seminary (a magnificent series of buildings,
with a splendid chapel built in Gothic style—
known all over the South, and patronized by
the "fust" families in Dixie, since its erection
in 185-, and within whose classic halls many
a haughty Southern belle and—aristocratic
daughter received the finishing touch to so
called •"fashionable society" indolence, hau
teur, pride and arrogance,) is-about 900 yards
distant from "Williams." The building and
surroundings are now occupied by the 11. S.
Government, and nearly 500 sick and wounded
soldiers are quartered there, nursed and cared
for by the U. S. Government.
The interior of the fort is admirably ar
ranged, with a sufficient number of fine ri
fled cannon, several large coast siege guns,
and a certain number of improved howitzers.
The number, calilia, and . capacity of the arm
ament I know correctly, bit it would be con
traband to give publicity to the fact. There
is a large bomb-proof magazine, very conve
nient to the huge, lazy war dogs, lying there
so quiet and docile, as if taking a nap, or
waiting for something to turn up and give
them a trial of their metal. Where the fort
is situated, once stood a magnificent brick
building, (razeed to make room,) once the
country residence and summer resort of Hon.
Samuel Cooper, formerly Adjutant of the U.
S. army—and now holding the same ppsition
in the rebel army. Two substantial build
ings, a number of elegant shade trees and a
neat, clean lawn, in the rear of "Williams,"
are now occupied by Capt. Nevin's men, af
fording them tip-top quarters, roomy, clean
and comfortable. Close by I observed also a
neat brick building, of Gothic style, said to
be the summer residence of Bishop St. John,
the well-known and distinguished prelate of
the Church of England. It is used, I be
lieve, for hospital purposes at present. Near
at hand also are a number of cabins, inhab :
ited by contrabands to the number of four
hundred or five hundred. They maintain
themselves—the men, by driving Govern
ment teams, at the block-houses now building,
in a hundred different-ways—the women, by
washing for soldiers and other domestic oc
cupations in the city. One of the men in
formed me he lived in the extreme southwest
ern portion of the State, was a slave among a
hundred, and when the Yankees approached,
his "Mass'r" told 'em to hurry, and pack up
eberyting and come along wid him,for de Yan
kees would kill us, sartain. Why, sah, dey
tried to make us belieb dat de Yanks hab
horns to run us troo, like de wild oxen, but we
know'd better, and we bid our wives and lit
tle children, an' Ilex' day we got to de Union
army, and tank de Lord here we is, makin' a
decent livin' and enjoyin' freedom" "Would
you like to go back, Sam r , "Would we, sah
—yes, sah, in a horn!" Around, in
every direction, may be seen the dwellings
and summer resorts of many other prominent
Secessionists, now enjoying a "happy time"
with their brethren in the distant States of
Rebeldom t- Bishop St. John was related, in
some way, with the proud family-of Masons,
well known in the annals of Virginia, and no
doubt was the bright star of this villa and
surroundings—the centre and attraction of
treason-plotters and arch-traitors of the once
great and prosperous Old Dominion.
Farther on south-west from Williams is
situated the Lazaretto, or small-pox hospital.
It is a fine, large building, evidently once the
residence of an aristocrat, standing aloff from
the railroad and public ,road. But few pa
tients are treated there, at thiotime, J am in
After examining the pets—a fine large Vir
- girlie grey fox. chained on the front portico—
three or four tiny black and tan-colored ter
rier dogs—a variety of game fowls, &c., we
visited the sutler—itabibed a glass or two of
lager, and tasted some fine fruit (evidently
the product of some orchard of Western New
York, w here they do raise fruit to perfection)
—we bid our friend W— "good bye" and
wended our way to camp by a near route,
over the hills, via Fort Ellsworth, from the
heights of which we had a fine- vie* of the
Potomac, for many 'miles southward, and up
the river, of Washington, ,Georgetown Heights,
Arlington and surroundings:..
In glancing over the list of drafted men,, in
the various wards of Harrisburg, I find a
dozen or Bo that are now in service in the
.201ifi-TTavo of theni reclubSted . to. .Say_to
"the man at the wheel" to please drop their
names for a year longer, as they are actually
engaged to Uncle Sam till September next, at
paying rates; and that they "can't See the
point of " with their friends about
to go into service from our native city, in the
next drafted regiment.
A member of Company "G," writing from a
picket post near Chambersburg, states the
fact that old Camp Couch is spread over with
huge piles of manure, and the farmer is run
ning his "plough-share deep" into the famil
iar ground over which we strutted on dress
parade, to the tune of "Landigan's Ball," by
our excellent band—and the soft side of Slate
Hill is "turned up" in well-laid furrows, and
the spot where stood our she-batig= where we
had our " local habitation" and our festal
board, is cleared of rubbish and the pharapher
nails , of a camping ground, preparatory to
planting a crop of corn the ensuing spring ;
which, we hope, may bless the farmer's vision,
and give him a recompense for the many
privileges we of the 201st enjoyed upon his
premises. Truly yours, A. IL B.

ager to place before them the best plays in the
best manner possible. Large amounts of
money are expended to secure the services of
the best star performers in the cotuatcy. The
liberal patronage bestowed upon this , , place
of amusement is the best evidence that suc

Haarassono, Feb. Bth, 1884.
C. A. BAmqvAirr-Dear Sir: I have used Brown's
Bronchial Troches, Widnes Lozenges, and
other preparations for hoarseness and throat
troubles, and, in comparison with them all,
can cheerfully commend your own as a most
admirable specific for public speakers and
singers, in cases of hoarseness, coughs and
colds. I have found them serving in time of
need, most effectually.
Yours truly, T. H. ROBINSON,
Pastor of N. S. Presbyterian Church.
W I agree with Mr. Robinson as to the
value of Bannvart's Troches.
W. C. CATTELL,

To C. A. Barman—Dear Sir: In the habit
of speaking very irequently, and in places
where the vocal organs are very much taxed,
I have found the need of some gentle expec
torant, and that want has b supplied in
your excg,llent Troches. lir
I consider them very far superior to any
Lozenges that I have ever used, in removing
speedily that huskiness of the voice arising
from its too frequent use, and impairing the
effectiveness of the delivery of public addres
