Deacon Bergner Brought into Court.
Editors Patriot and Union :—Soon after the
first occupation of this place by the rebel cav
alry under General Jenkins, the following ap
peared in the Lancaster Express:
gentleman from Shippensburg informs
the editor of the flarriSburg Ts/era / A. that he
was present at an interview between General
Jenkins and some prominent Republicans at
Chambersburg. After discussing matters con
nected with the war for some time, a prominent
office-holder in Franklin county stepped up
and introduced himself to the rebel General.
Jenkins said that he ought to refuse shaking
him by the hand. The office-holder desired to
know the reason of such treatment. General
Jenkins asked the question, Are you the Dis
trict Attorney from this county ?" Yes,'
was the reply. Then you are a regular cop
perhead.' That is ,what they call me,' re
plied the office-holder. To which the rebel
General replied, 'Lincoln ought to have hung
you and the rest of the copperheads long ago
We would not tolerate any such men in the
Southern Confederacy. We respect those - who
are againk us in the North much more than
the copperheads.' "
I am the District Attorney Qf Franklin
county. I have never taken part in any such
couyosatioe, I have never spoken a word. to
General Jenkins, nor has -he. to me. During
the time that he held possession of the town I
did not even see him.

And further, I have made diligent inquiry
to discover whether or not such remarks were
made to any one in this place by Gen. Jenkins,
and am My satiated that the report is utterly
without foundation in fact.
This report would be unworthy of denial

the citizens of this community by a repetition
of such charges as the above. This gentleman

Mr. J. O. Wilson, an army, correspondent of the
New York Herald, Wile Was captured by the rebels
between Greencastle and HagerstioWn, and carried
with them to Williamsport, writes from Hagers
town, July 14, as follows:
"After the fight, [the cavalry fight between Gen.
Kilpatrick and a rebel force a short distance from
Hagerstown on Monday evening,] and amid mud
and darkness, I was taken to Wilitamsport. Here
I Wile again Mated in the moat kindly manner.
"bn arriving at my second place of confinement
I fluid the rebel forces rapidly marching to th e
river. The crossing Commenced on Saturday
afternoon. Previous to this the enemy bad sue
°celled in constructing a kihd of raft, which re
seuibles a floating bridge. The wounded, who had
been placed in houses used as hospitals at Wil
liamsport, were put in ambulances and sent over,
thee followed the am munition train. Some of the
wagons went by the ford, for it must be etated the
rehel force crossed in two columns, one on the
bridge and one thr.sugh the water. The retreat
was conducted in the most orderly manner. The
Southern troops are in no manner demoralised;
they are eager for fresh encounters.
'The principal part of the rebel infantry crossed
yesterday. In order to blind the Unionists the
mainly built a loog line of high earthworks, built
cttop fires, and during all the heavy rain that fell
during tbe night, drenched as they were with rain,
finished their works and marched to Williamsport
and crossed before daylight. . •
"At about 6 o'clock this morning nothing but one
brigade of infantry remained on this side. With
this were a few pieces of artillery.
PI got away from the enemy at daylight this'
morning.. Gen. Kilpatrick left ILtgeritOtre at an

THE NEW YORK RIOTS.
HORRORS OF MOB RULE
In yesterday's paper we gave the exciting inci
dents of the New York draft riots down to two
o'clock, p. m. on Monday. We now subjoin from
the Journal of Commerce a full account of the pro
endings of the mob from that hour until 19 o'Ohlek
at night !
Soon after this occurrence a procession of people,
numbering from 3,000 to 5,000, generally armed
with clubs, bars of iron and pistols, marched up
Twenty-second street from First avenue and joined
All this time the mob bad been in want of a
leader. There appeared to be no one to counsel
or direct this huge assemblage of muscle. No one
made speeches, which was an extraordinary fact
under the circumstances; but about 3 p. m., a Mr.
Andrews (so the name was reported through the
crowd) mounted a shed, and addressed, as well as
his voice would permit, the vast audience. The
substance of his remarks was understood to be
that be coueeele4 the fiercest resistance to the
draft, and offered himself as a leader. The mob
received everything that he said with the wildest
The next move was to attack the elegant resi
dence of Mr. Hawkesworth, corner of Forty-sev
enth street and Lexington avenue. The reason
for this assault, was not apparent. It was said by
some that Major General Sanford lived there;
by others that it was the dwelling place of some
body commuted with the provost marshal's depart
ment; by others that Horace Greeley was the
occupant; by others that a policeman or soldier
bad hid himself there. At any rate, the house was
invaded, the windows smashed, the furniture bro
ken, many ornaments and articles of value stolen,
and,,finally, the house was fired. The whole trans
action well illustrated the unreasoning nature of
This disgraceful scene over, there was a simul
taneous rush on the part of a largo potties of tha
mob to the arsenal in Seventh avenue. - The mob
crossed at Thirty-seventh street, howling as they
went. One man bore a hastily improvised banner
lettered "No Draft." At the arsenal the military
were in readiness for the riotors. All the compa
nies and detachments previously mentioned were
there, alldi 19 addition, a force of "one hundred
regulate from Governor's Island, under command
of Captain Watkins. All the doors and gates of
the arsenal were barred, and strong guards posted
at all sides within. The mob hesitated to make
the attack which they evidently contemplated:
Here, as everywhere else, it was noticed that
the women were especially furious. Some of them
had weapons in their hands. All talked fiercely,
and advised the men, their husbands and other%
to die in the streets, rather than submit to the
draft. These women bad taken no small part in
the assaults made on policemen and soldiers in
the early part of the day. One policeman was
nearly kilted by them.
An attack being feared on the Custom House,
ell the clerks were armed with muskets by order
trint was PestPollo4 for the present, ince tiee.
200 names had been drawn.
DESTRUCTION OF THE COLORED ORPHAN ASYLUM.
One of the most lamentable acts of the rioters
was the sacking and burning of the large pile of
buildings on Forty-fifth street, near the Reservoir,
known as the Colored Orphan Asylum. They were
of brick, pretty, enclosed and shaded, and appar
rently complete in every respect. But they were
obnoxious to the rioters, and in a remarkably short
time were cleared of their contents and enveloped
in 8M1309. The firemen arrived tardily
. and in
mail aui9lbors, owing to the doompl for their ser
vices in other places, and were evidently intimi
dated by the presence of the mob. Water was
thrown on the flames only whe% too late to satire
anything. .When all but one wici was burned out,
a couple of streams were thrown on for a time, bet
dually diverted to another building at some dis
tance, in no degree exposed. Judging froni the
rapid movement of A number of men, with clubs
about that time, the firemen desisted from the ef
fects of menace. A large number of boys and.peo
ple of the poorclassee helped themselves to plun
der from the burning buildings, and to property of
eater descriptions Several exciting !canes oc
curred while the fire was in progress, occasioned
by the preteoCe of suspepted "Abolitionists," who
were pursued with clubs and shouts, though we ob
served no. settial,violanee.
PISTOL PACTORT" ON SECOND AVENUE.
The mob attacked and set fire to a gun or pistol'
factory in Second avenue. It is said that several
lives were• lost here. The walls fell on all sides
simultaneously, with a tremendous - crash. Shortly
after, the limbs of a man were discovered project
ing above the bricks on the side-walk, and the re
mains were at once taken sway by the firemen,
after being baked almost to the consistency. of
wood—tbe limbs shriveled and cracked, without
any sign of fire. They were not identified, At
the drug store on the opposite corner, a revolting
sight was .witnessed. in the appearance of three
miserable men, one of them shot, and the others,
writhing from the tffects of burning. One, in par
ticular, was a masa of raw flesh from the scalp to
the waist. on one side, and rolled on the floor in
ag eay, while sloths saturated in oil Were applied
bat it is not possible he can survive. Besides, one
arm was broken.
Daring the afternoon the Mayor issued the fol
lowing proclamation :

GEORGIE OPDAKE, Mayor.

Third Avenue after a large force had left ft.r the
arsenal, proceeded on a ttur of burning and de
struction in different parts of the city.
Two houses on Lexington avenue near Forty.
fifth street, one of which was said to be owned by
Provost Marshal Jenkins, were fired and destroy.
ed. The well-known Bull's Bead hotel, in Forty
fourth street, watt also burned, to the ground. The
motive of the assault on this building was known
only to the mob. They acted upon a frenzied ha.
poise, and were ready to put the torah to any
building, that anybody pointed out. Not only
women, but young glide and boys, took a lure in

the Half-Orphan Colored Asylum, which was also
buried to the ground. Toe children were f .r

up town, scoured Cherry street, Church, Leonard
and Baxter streets, Catharine lane, and other
streets where there are some negro reel
denees, and set fire to these. The police were for
tunateiy in strong force in the lower part of the
city, and checked these operations of the mob to
a great extent. The fire bells were ringing con
tinually, and the firemen did their duty nobly, the
mob not being in enMeient. strength to stop them
from working their engiovr. But for the untiring
exerti.ms of the firemen, a large portion of the
Fourth and Sixth wards would have been burned
Later in the evening the enrolling office of Capt.
Duffy, in Grand street, was attacked and burned.
The books and drafting wheel bad been removed
to a place of security in apprehension of an as

regard to all the other enrolling offices in the
About eight Oehler a large crowd of men and
boys, who had been standing in front of the Dl
bane office for some time, commenced an attack on
that establishment. First a shower of stones was
thrown at the windows, anti then the mob rushed
into the office on the first floor, which seemed to be
entirely unprotected, and commenced breaking the
desks and damaging everything within their reach.
The press room and the editorial and composing
rooms were not entered—though they probably
would have been broken into and °asked but far
the arrival of a. force of nearly six hundred po
licemen, under command of Inspector Carpenter.
This force dashed across the park and took the
rioters in the rear. Such a whirling of clubs and
such a scattering of people were never befre seen
in this city. The mob made no attempt to resist
the police, but ran out of sight in less than two
minutes, belting dawn aide streets and alleys, intr.
sued and hit and knocked over by the victorious
policemen. A large number of the rioters carried
away bruised heads and bodies as mementoes of
the affair. Several who were seriously injured
were helped away by their comrades. Many were
arrested by the police and taken to the station
houses. A force of police was then left in charge
of the Tribune office, and the remainder went back
to the rendezveue At the Mulberry street head.
At this rendezvous the whole available force of
the department, including all the men who could
be spared from Brooklyn. were concentrated. Gen.
Wool, and Col. Harvey Brown, and Commissioner
Acton, ex-Governor Morgan and Inspectors Leo
nard and Dilka were in constant attendance. The
movements of the police were directed by tele
graph, as occasion required, throughout all of the
city but the northotietern wards, Where the lines
bad been out by the rioters.
At S o'clock a meeting of ex-officers of the mili
tia was held at the Seventh Regiment armory in
compliance with a call from Gen. Sanford. About
150 were present, who offered their services to
suppress the riot It was resolved that they should
go around among their personal friends and for
ego, military nesociatos in the city and muster all
that they could pursued° to join in this object.
After a further brief confirmation the officers
started out on this mission, leaving a sufficient
force to protect the armory. !
In the early part of the evening, as the mob
were eoming down Broadway, at a point opposite
Prince street, they were attacked in front by In
spector Carpenter with 244 men, and ranted- The
onslaught of the pollee, wee Utitapeeted and met
with no resistance. Numerous damaging blows
were indicted and arrests made. A banner in

The firemen were always promptly on hand, and
succeeded in arresting the spread of the flames
before much damage was done. It. was impossi
ble to follow up the rioters so closely as to pre
vent these acts of incendiarism. Several negroes
were severely injured by the mob.
About 9:1 p. tn. another large detachment from
the up-town mob came down Broadway with the
intention of sacking the Tribune office, in which
purpose they bad been foiled an boor or two pre
vious. Inspector Carpenter, with a force of about'
sirs hundred men was notified of their approach,
by telegraph, and lay in wait for WIZ In front of
the City Hall. As they came yelling down Broad
way, he rushed out opposite the City Hall and at
tacked them in flank. Tbi3 sudden assault pro
duced the utmost consternation among the rioters.
They broke and ran, pursued by the police, and
smitten hip and thigh by their stout locusts.
About a drama rioters were severely bruised about
the bead. A few of the pelieemen received slight
injuries. The victory was complete.
Superintendent Kennedy at last accounts was
doing well, and confidently expected to recover.
Intelligence up to a late hour last night reports
"all quiet" at the arsenal. There are only about
sixty-five men in charge, but they , consider them
selve.a perfectly able to protest the building. The
balance of the troops criginatly ordered there have
been placed - on duty elsewhere.
