dollars, caused by the purchase of tn, steam

RETURN OF THE FLAG OF THE FIFTY-FIFTH
PENNA. REGIMENT.--To-day the old flag of
the Fifty-fifth was returned to the State au
thorities, the regiment having been famished
with a new one in its stead. The flag pre.
sents indisputable evidence that it has been
in the hands of brave men. Its tattered folds
contain hundreds of rents produced by the
death-dealing missiles of the enemy, as well
as stains of the blood of noble standard-bear
ate who fell while bearing aloft the emblems
of the nation. Attached to the flag we find
a Hat of the battles in which the regiment
was stied. They are as follows:

NEW Om COMPANY. —The oil excitement
throughout the country has become intense.
Oil, although found in immense quantities,
appears to be but in its infancy—new discov
eries are daily made, and the larger the produc
tion, the greater the variety of uses to which.
it is applied. A number of corporations for
the development of this oil have been formed
in the cities of Now York and Philadelphia,
and their agents Nye been sent all over the
country, who have !disposed of an immense
quantity of stock. • Many of these compa
nies have beep established upon a solid foun
dation, and are yielding princely divi
dends upon investments of stock, while others
have been formed for speculative and
deceptive purposes. Although considerable
stimk .ifl .- those-foreign companies 'has been
taken by - our citizens, yet there is an evident
feeling Of distrust in our business community'
agaixiet corporations which are wholly managed
abroad and by strangers. A number of our
most -eubstantial, influential and ener g etic,
business men have formed a company under
the name of "The State Capital Oil Company,"
with a capital of $500,000. They have pur
chased the fee simple .title of the celebrated
Hunter farm, located on the Allegheny river,
in Veuapgo county, and will be in full opera

From the 201st Regiment.
WEST ALEXA.NDBIA, VA.,
Sunday, Dec. 18, 4 P. N., 1864,
EDITOR TELEGRAPH—Dear Sir:—Yestsrday
was general inspection day,. and Captain
Fisher, Assistant Acting Inspector General of
Gen. Slough's stet paid our Camp a visit,
inspecting ordnance, equipments,. quarters,
The day was disagreeable, the mud al
most ankle deep, and the task of examining
so many man must have been performed un
der difficulties; but with the assistance of our
011 and gentlemanly Adjutant, Lieut. Res
singetr, the job was got through with lond
before night. Captain Fisher, lam informed,
expressed - himself satisfied, with the general
appearance of the men of the 201st, and com
plimented the Regimental Baud for > the
excellent music discoursed on the °cession.
Ther&was also great rejoicing among the •
soldiers and the Union portion of the popu
lace of Alexandria, on learning of the signal
victories achieved by General Thomas and the
brava men of his command, in the army of
the Southwest. A salute of 200 guns was
fired from the navy yard, at the national capi
tol, and the roaring of the huge columbiads,
at an interval of about two seconds, made the
very air tremble down here, seven miles dis,
taut!, Everybody was on the tip-tee of expec
tation mnd curiosity, anxious to hear of s, glo
rious victory by . Sherman, but when the
Washington evening . papers game to hand,
we were advised of glorious news from ano
ther source—the effective lampooning Thomas
administered to Hood, near Nashville, Tenn.
Late in the evening a rumor was afloat in
the city—and credited by many—that the re
'doubtable Moseby, and a batch of his rag
muffin followers had been captured, at some
point between tbts and the mountains. I
could not.trace the rumor to any reliable
source, so it will be forwarded to the TELE
GRAPH as on dit item.
There was a detail made from our regbnent,
to-day, of fifteen men and one commissioned
officer, to guard a batch of prisoners, on boaid
a steamer for City Point. Among the prison
ers were bounty-jumpers, deserters, and draft
resisters. The boat left the Government
wharf at 3 r. ar. The men took with them
each three days' rations. The guard was under
command -of Second Lieutenant John H.
Snow, Company K, and consisted of the fol
Company A, private Edward Nevinger.
Company B, privates Franklin Putt, George
Company C, privates Peter Gamber, Lewis.
Company D, privates Samuel Wickum,
Company H, Corporal Free, privates Serrell
passing, Elias Hoke.
Company I, privates John H. Stoner, Wm.
Company N., privates John Brenner, Peter
Green and James MeElhair.
The men composing the guard are all eager
to go on this particular errand—many of them
never having been in the locality for which
tt,ey are destined. We hope they may return
-to the regiment at an early day.
Christmas it °caning, sure enough. Every
`body-receiving a letter in camp, about this
time,, has the promise of a Christmas gift.
May the Almighty bless the willing Linde and
benevolent hearts of our friends at the North
for the Christmas presents and offerings of
good-will they contemplate sending my poor
victims of salt-horse, fat pork and white-lield
beans-1-7subsistence which, by the way, is
good enough for a soldier on all ordinary oc
casions; but when the wisq,rtgitembered birth

-the recollection of roast turkey, nunee pies
:ad the thouar ss 101 4 kitte gasei 'o 2 h, rink
which our friends at home are surrounded, it
would bring a tear of regret to She eye of the
soldier, should his Mends neglebt him, or tie . - !
cessity compel him to sit down and eat salt
pork, embalmed beef and dry bread, or black
coffee, off an ordinary store-box for a table!
In this connection I would state that the
friends of the 201st have indeed been liberal
in the way of remembering their friendi here
--for there is no end to the packages the boys
are daily receiving. Thanks, friends of the
soldiers, enjoying life and its blessings in the
good old Keystone State.
The reverses of Hood in Tennessee, and
the bold and successful manoeuvring of Sher
man in the South, has been a source of regret
to the secesh sympathizers here in Alexan
Once in a while their feelings ooze out, and
they so far forget themselves, in conversation,
as to give a person, of common intellig . ence,
a pretty good insight into their feeling and
sentiments. The other day, when the news
of Sherman's rapid and daring advance
through Georgia was announced, they ac
knowledged that it was a fatal blow to their
cause, but remarked, "the people of the South
are so determined that it will take years to
bring them to terms." My friend Krider says
this determined faith of theirs must end the
same way that old Cooney G—.s, of East
Hanover township,. in - our native county, did,
on a certain occasion. Cooney had strong be
lief in pow-wowing—in fact he poisessed the
great secret. himself—he was the "medicine
man" that knew how to operate with. "signs"
and "words." Now it happened that butch
ering came round to Cooney, as it did to all
his neighbors, the same winter. Cooney had
a fat steer--a vicious steer—and when the
butcher was ready for action, he asked our friend
how he intended to bring down the bullock--
with the rifle, with the axe, or how? "Never
mind." said the "man of words"--"I will at
tend to him. He procured a long rope—had,
one end of it fastened around the neck of the
devilish-looking bullock, and wound the other
around his body? "Why, Cooney" said the
butcher, what on earth are you ----"
"Never mind," interrupted the man--"chase
the fellow out--when he comes through the
door he will spy me—he will take me
for a post, and with a few words I
will bring him right up to me, when
you can knock him dosin easily. The beast
was driven out—with one bound he cleared
the door, and the next instant he was . running,
like an enraged buffalo, all over the barn
yard, over piles of manure, through cattle,
idle wagons, Fcc., with old Cooney, the "pow
vow" man, attached to the other end of the
cord, bruised and frightened almost out of
his wits. After that, old man Cooney G----
had no more faith in pow-vowing. So, Krider
it is with the rebel sympathizers here.
Their faith is almost played out. Grant and.
Sherman, the giant bullocks, are pulling them
all around--and their faith in pow-vowing is
The health of the regiment is very good.
Only, a few cases—and those of a trifling na
ture—in the hospital at this time.
The. weather is mild—the streets in a shock
ing condition--mud almost ankle deep.
