FOR JUDGE OF THE SUPREME COURT,
WALTER H. LOWRIE,
OF ALLEMONNY COUNTY.
When, in these warlike times, we talk about
situations, we talk about ticklish things. Over
the river the case is somewhat dubious. We
shall not undertake to amuse the people by an
anecdote or divert their attention by a lie.—
Our object is to give them the truth, and at
present the truth is somewhat oppressive. The
Cumberland valley from the line of the Poto
mac to the line of the Susquehanna is full of
enemies, men inured to war and who under
stand all the science and hazard of battle.
To meet these inured soldiers we have but,
in a measure, raw recruits, men who have val
orously come from their homes ready to do or
die for their country. But this is not enough,
nor is it all that we have. We have approach
ing from the South the Army of the Potomac,
an army of as brave and well disciplined men
as ever lived, but their encounter is with brave
men, and who shall win, in the end, God only
knows. We hope that. the men trained by Mc-
Clellan and Burnside and Hooker, and now led
by Meade, as gallant a soldier as ever drew
sword, will prevail, and that the rebels will he
either bagged or driven back to the impover
ished soil of Virginia. But at this writing,
tamale o'clock Friday, p. ut., we can give no as
.surance to our readers.
We dare not state in this relation all we know,
and we say to every true hearted Pennsylva
nian, up and to the field, for there is where our
services are now required.
The enemy are iu force in the valley. They
came in without let or hindrance, and they hold
all the passes. Our task is to drive them out,
and trusting in God, a good cause and our own
bra v e r y we -will perform all that is required
We have but little intelligence to communi
cate to our readers beyond what was contained
in our yesterday's issue.
The battle at Carlisle was not fought, as - at
first supposed, by the rear guard of Ewell's
forces, but by a portion of Pits Hugh Lee's
command, who came to Carlisle, expecting to
find Ewell there in force. Ignorant of our nu
merical strength, they did not venture a close
engagement, and, after shelling the town for
a short time, they burned the principal bar
racks buildings, gas works, etc., and retired,
as we before observed, out the Baltimore pike
to Holly Gap. Our casualties were some 10
or 15 wounded.. The spirited reply of General
Smith, refusing to surrender the town, and the
gallantry of the militia under him, saved the
town from re-capture.
Notwithstanding the terrific conflicts going
on in the lower part of the valley day before
yesterday, the rebel guerrillas are still among .
the hills of York, Adams, Cumberland and
Franklin counties, taking captive horses and
cattle. It is reportrd that they aggregated
2.000 horses in one drove. Most of them were
taken from the mountains where the farmers
had concealed them. Whatsoever wretch con
veyed to them the information of the place or
places of concealment should be hung to the
limb of the nearest tree.
We find the followingin the N. Y. Herald of
yesterday, which is_ all the additional intelli
gence we have.

We had an interview yesterday with an in
telligent officer of Milroy's command, who
furnishes some particulars of the disgraceful
defeat at Winchester and Maitinsburg not
heretofore given to the public. In the first
place, be says that General Milroy is a good
tactician, and not 'wanting in personal cou
rage, but that he is so entirely wanting in
judgment and foresight as to be altogether
unfit for'art independent command,
At Winchester, although he was informed
that the rebels were advancing, be sent out no
Scouts to ascertain from what direction they
were coming, but kept his cavalry lying idle
behind the fortifications. The result of this
want of precaution was that the rebels cut a
new road and adfanced from an unexpected
quarter, planting their batteries Within easy
railge, and the first notice Milroy had of their
near vicinity was the roar of the cannon
belching forth death and destruction upon his
forces. The men fought well and done all men
could do, under the circumstances, until night
closed the scene. At 12 o'clock at night Mil
roy spiked hie guns, left his baggage, and
commenced the retreat, sending forward his
infantry first, his artillery next, and the cav
alry bringing up the rear. Here was another
criminal neglect in not sending out cavalry
scouts in the advance. The result was that
the infantry plunged into a rebel ambush and
was opened on by a concealed rebel battery.
Here, halting his column he brobght forward
his cavalry and ordered a charge, but the cun
ning rebels had stretched telegraph wires
across the road which overturned horses and
riders in inextricable confusion.
At this juncture the gallant Milroy lost all
presence of mind, and unable to extricate his
men, exclaimed-60.1 know not what in God's
name to dol men; save yourselves:" and
dashed away, followed by his staff. The men,
of course, done their best to get away from

The Governor's Call.

ernor for troops to defend the State from inva

our best citizens, with stout bands and , willing
hearts, ready to battle for State sovereignty
and drive-ile invader from our soil. Had the
call . been uncoupled with a special term of ser
vice, as it was last year, and the good sense
and patriotism of the people left to determine
the duration of the exigency, thousands more
would have flocked to our borders, and wil
lingly remained as long as there was any ne
cessity for their services, but each call was
coupled with some condition yielding up our

are to be sworn into the . State service for three
months, and our brave citizens who have left
their nngathered crops, their unfinished man
ufactures; their incomplete business, at great
pecuniary sacrifice, may be held for that period
by our provincial Governor, who is the willing
tool of legal Secretary Stanton, whether their
services are really necessary or not. Had the
call been properly made when the first alarm
was given, our brethren on the borders would
not now be fugitive's from devastated fields and
Notwithstanding all this trick, double-deal
ing and indirection on the part of our rulers,
it is gratifying to see with what alacrity and
enthusiasm Pennsylvanians of all classes and
of all parties turn out for the defence of our
borders. The heart of every true lover of his
country swells proudly at the grand and im
posing spectacle. It is an earnest of the fu
ture, and shows conclusively that when our
good old Commonwealth shall be again presi

SUITED ALL ROUND —The administration
seems to have made a lucky hit in appointing
to the command of the Army of the Potomac
a general who will be precluded by birth from
becoming an aspirant for the Presidency.—
This is an immense advantage, and the selec
tion illustrates Mr. Lincoln's proverbial sa
gacity and far reaching wisdom in removing
all chance of having as a competitor to the re
election which he desires, so formidable a can
didate as the successful commander of the Army
of the :.Potomac would be sure to prove. In
faot, the• appointment will work well all round.
Gen. Meade can attend to his business of de.
feating Lee and crushing the rebellion, without
troubling himself about politics,. and Seward
and Chase will be left free .to plot against eaoh
other, without any apprehension of having their
Presidential intrigues spoiled by a great Union
victory. This consideration may also induce
Halleck and Stanton not to trip np the new
commander, and thus inspire the soldiers with
something like confidence in their leader. We
gladly hail then this aurora of a new day thio
has dawned upon Washington and .the nation,

TEE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG.
Correapend once of the N. Y. Herald
1111ronA0 or; 2 . 1;s PIRLD,
WWII OF GETTWOJIIG7 Jul 1-10 T. M.
Gen. Buford's cavalry had previously driven
the rebels to the west of the town / beyond the
seminary, and between 9 and 10 o'clock a. m.
the rebels gave his pickets a pretty sharp
brush and drove them in. Gen. Reynolds,
w ith the First. corps, was on the road from
Emmet - WWI to Gettysburg, an route to the let
xer place, which the road approaches through
the very scene of the conflict.
Gen. Reynolds at once threw forward the
First division, under Gen. Wadsworth, which
began to drive the enemy from the start.—
Very soon after the Second division of the
to me corps went on the right of the First di
vision, the. Third division on the left of the
First, and the whole line began to advance.—
Nearly west of the - town, just in the outskirts,
near the seminary, of which I have spoken, is
a large brick edifice. Southward from this
runs a piece of woods, and the seminary stands
on a ridge which slopes to the west into a lit
tle open valley of ploughed fields and meadows,
rich with grass and grains. Beyond the valley
is a ridge of higher land, thickly wooded.—
The valley runs in a southwesterly direction,
and at its lower extremity is a large farmhouse,
near which the Eighth Illinois cavalry was
drawn up in the field, and formed our extreme
left. Several farmhouses dotted this same
rich little valley. Across this valley General
Reynolds' line advanced somewhat hastily, al
• most before it was well formed, and in that
condition did not go fir until against it a heavy
force of the rebel infantry was immediately
thrown, and Gen. Reynolds was in turn driven.
But his troops retired step by step, and in ex
cellent order. Forward with the utmost en•
thusiasm pressed the rebel line, eager now to
turn Reynolds' retirement into a rout. Some
of the rebels had top much energy and got too
far ; for, while they pressed too closely on the
right of the centre division, the left of the same
division was suddenly swept around, arid then
enclosed in the handsomest manner an entire
rebel brigade under Gen Archer.
General Archer and his whole staff were
taken. About fifteen hundred of the enemy's
men thus fell into our hands, and went to the
rear. Small regiments were the order in this
brigade ; and when an Alabama colonel was
asked where the rest of his regiment was. he
reel/000 1 i laeonieally, tf Gone to Hell, sir."
One of these prisoners said to another, with
some astonishment, "Hehl Jakey, we're fight
ing the army of the Potomac now." They seem
to have thou o ht they had hold of the militia.
The regiments which made this capture were
the Sixth Wisconsin, the Brooklyn Fourteenth
and the Ninety fifth New York.
Though.the First corps still continued to re
tire. the rebel advance was broken soon after
this, and. General Reynolds now prepared to go
forward in earnest. Apparently forgetful that
he had" at first only gone in to support cavalry,
he was very likely to bring on a general engage
ment with only one corps. Formed as before,
his lice went forward and drove the enemy
across the *alley and over the ridge at the fur
ther aide; but it was at great expense to us,
as th e fi re w ith whisk they received our ft flows
was terribly severe. From the hill the line of
skirmishers was thrown out some distance, and
Gen. Reynolds went out to the line to recon
noitre, when he was hit by a musket ball in the
back of the neck, and killed instantly.
In rather less than an hour after the fight
began the Eleventh corps came up the same
road by which the First bad approached, and
General Howard at once assumed command of
the whole field, while General Schurz assumed
command of the Eleventh corpe. General
Doubleday.had already assumed command of
the First corps. Across the north side of the
town runs a creek, on which shortly after noon
it was reported the rebels were massing troops,
apparently to take the First corps on its rear.
To guard against an advance from that direc
tion, General Howard Bent forward the First
and Third divisions of the Eleventh corps,
which moved across the rear of the First corps
and through the town, and took up position
with the First division on the right. General
Steinwehr's division—the Second—was held
as a reserve.
Meantime two or three of our batteries held
a sharp parley with the rebel batteries posted
on the hills that encircle the town, and their
balls overshot our batteries somewhat and
threw several shot in among the solid people
of Gettysburg. Whether it frightened them or
not 1 can hardly say. I doubt if they could
experience an emotion so lively as that of fear;
but they began to get out of the way; not the
women and children particularly, but stalwart,
able-bodied wretches in men's garments were
what I principally saw on the .road to the
At about half-past two o'clock, while the
batteries exchanged a heavy fire and some
sharp musketry woke up the echoes on the
right, the rebels advanced in heaiy force
ag‘iest the First corps, which slowly retreated
from the hills beyond the valley to high ground
near the seminary, where it prepared to make
all the resistance it was capable of. It was
reinforced there by some dismounted dragoons,
and fought in the open field; for, though some
rail fences were thrown down across the front
of our line, they afforded no cover. From the
woods beyond the fat =houses, and across the
open space, a rebel force of perhaps three
large brigades advanced handsomely in line of
battle, while the rebel batteries near the gene
ral centre shelled our position hotly to cover
On came the line, right up within short
range of our position, when it was opened
upon with 'a fire so sharp and well served as
to _stagger and then completely repulse it.
Backward went the line that came forward in
such good order, a mere mass of stragglers,
each of whom made the best of his way across
While the musketry was very hot in front of
General Doubleday, a party of about one hun
dred rebels stole through the woods well up on
Doubleday's left flank, and fired a large barn,
ene of those immense magazines of breadatuffs
that in Pennsylvania so overpeer the compara
tively Small farmhouses. An immense black
`column of smoke soon began to ascend from the
roof, breaking out presently into a white, sul
phurous cloud, and then into a fierce red blaze.
.Doder cover of this fire the rebel skirmishers
exchanged numerous shots with a line of skir
mishers from the cavalry on our extreme left.
Repulsed, but not vanquished, the rebel line
was and reinforced ; and no w, for a
second time, came on a force nearly twice as
great as at first. Once more, also, the batter
ies threfishelle, answered by our batteries on
the left, and also by batteries of ours on the
extreme right, which at this time threw shell
at the position on the enemy's centre. Once
more the packed, rapid rattle of our file fire
broke out, and once more the rebel line was
broken and went to the right about in rout. .
There is a mysterious fatality connected
with the third time; and so, after a lull and
period of comparative quiet of twenty minutes,
onward for a third time came the rebels, quite
as orderly as before, their line of skkinishers
firing as they came on. In eo great force was
this line that. it completely overlapped the line
of the First corps on both flanks. Two brigades
on the right were quite out of ammunition,
and the order was given to retreat on the
town ; and our bOys accordingly retreated in
good order, while the rebels rushed forward
with yells to our position. On came the ene
my's, fourth line, further to the right of the
third, in good order, skirmishers ahead, until
the position at the Seminary WBl3 'reached,
when they oame forward with a rush, and oc
cupied a hill we had deemed it worth while
not to hold after the other was taken. On also
came another line in support behind this, and
our cavalry on the extreme left began to re-.
At this mcment the field presented a true
war picture. Across the fietis to the right
came the rebel line, with colt that fluttered
in the pleasant breeze; in the centre were two
farmhouses, outhouses and barns in flames,
and on the left the column of cavalry in re
treat, while beyond all the rays of the sun beat
down through the showery clouds and gilded
every object with a peculiarly golden light,
and over the heavens to the eastward stretched
a magnificent rainbow.
The new position of the Third corps was at
a line of stone wall southwest of the town,
along the slope of a hill on which is a ceme
tery. When the First corps retired tO the
town the left of the Eleventh was uncovered,
and a heavy advance completely on its right
flank at the same time compelled to retire.
It affords me pleasure to say that this corps is
reported to have fought well and lost many
men. As I was on our extreme left, I did not
see the fight of the Eleventh corps, and leave
all particulars in relation to it to the gentle
man who was with it.
After our retirement on the town the rebel
advance was not pressed further. And so
ended a battle that was brought on in the
most rash manner, yet which was well fought
against a largely superior force, and gotten
out of at last much better than we could have
expected to get out.
The rebel force fought by us was the corps
of General Ewell and that of A. P. Hill.—
South of the town is a high hill, on which is
a cemetery, and this became the headquarters.
Its slope to the west was held by the First
corps, and a continuation of hills from it to
ward the east was held by the Eleventh, while
the Twelfth corps was placed so as to hold
both flanks, the First division, under General
Williams, being on the extreme right, and the
Second division, under General Geary, on the
extreme. left. The Third corps, which came
on the field just at nightfall, was massed in
the centre, ready to be used whenever occa
sion might require. General . Slocum, of the
Twelfth corps, had assumed the command upon

DR. TORIA.b' Vh.NETTAN
MENT has given universal satisfaction during the four
teen years it has been introduced into the United States.
After being tried by minnow, it has been proclaimed
the pain destroyer of the world Pain cannot be where
this liniment is applied. If used as directed it cannot
and never has faild in a single instance. .For colds,
coughs and Inane:nes., it can't be beat. One 25 cent
bottle will cure all the above, besides being useful in
every family for sudden accidents, such as burns, outs,
scalds, insect stings, &c. It is perfectly innocent to
take internally, and can be given to the oldest person or
youngest cbild. Price 25 and 50 cents a bottle

To Horse Owners.
Dr. Sweet's Infallible Liniment for Horses
is unrivaled by any, and in all cases of Lameness, ari
sing from sprains, Bruises or Wrenching, its effect is
magical and certain. Harness or &dole Halls, Scratch
es, Mange, &0., it will also cure speedily. Bpavin and
Ringbone may be easily prevented and cured in their
incipient stages, Ivit confirmed cases are beyond the
possibility of a radical cure. No case of the kind, how
ever, is so desperate or hopeless but it may be alleviated
by this Liniment, and its faithful application wilt al
ways remove the Lameness, and enable the horse to
travel with comparative ease.
Every horse owner should have this remedy at hand,.
for its timely use at the first appearance of Lameness
will effectually prevent those formidable diseases men
tioned, to which all horses are liable, and which render
so many otherwise valuable horses nearly .worthless.
