.Candidate foii Conoiiess. J. J. Ki:r
Mr.NHNYDr.it, Esq., of Northumberland
county, is announced ns a candidato for
Congress, in the Northumberland and
Dauphin District. Mr. R. is a sound
Democrat and a finished scholar, and
would make a very rcgpectable Represen
tative in Congress. His moral character,
moreover, is without etnin or suspicion.
Rctuhned E. II. Chase, who has
been imprisoned among the rebels for the
past year, says the Luzerne Union, re
turned to Wilkes Barrc on Saturday night
looking well as ever. He is a little braw
ny, from hit) "sojourn in the South," but
otherwise looks about as wc last saw him
a year 6incc at Chambcrsburg, where he
was noting Secretary to Col'. Emley, ol
tho 8th regiment, lie left Col. Bowman
.still a prisoner in North Carolina. When
ihc latter will be released is unknown, as
it is understood the rebels rcfuso to re
ceive their privateers in exchange for
our officers. t
Col. Samuel M. Bowman.
Tho nbovo named gentleman, son of
Jesse Bowman, Esq,, of Berwick, this
county, has just returned from General
IIalleck's Army on a visit to hi3 friends,
having been furloughcd for thirty days on
aecouut of sickness whieh nearly disabled
him. Ho was Major of the fourth Illinois
Cavalry, and was nt tho battles of Fort
Donaldson and Pittsburg Landing. At tho
latter fearful couffict ho was especially
aetivo braving tho greatest dangers. lie
unhorsed a Captain of Rebel Cavalry and
took him prisoner. Ue rendered very im
portant services to our causa by heading
important and hazardous expeditions in
cutting off Railroad communications and
burning bridges over which tho enemy
was receiving provisions and reinforce
ments. For these meritorious services kc
has been promoted and holds tho commis
sion of Colonel in tho Army.

Tho Republican party of Pennsylvania
is no moue. It has "gone under," squel
ched, snuffed out, liko a candle, and tho
opposition to Democracy in this Stato is
to bo rallied under another namo and hold
j Stale Convention &t Harruburg on the
17th of July noxt.
Well, peace to tho Republican party's
ashes for, under that namo, theso same
fellows have caused tho bicecst war that
.ever devastated any nation.
But will this change of name avail them I
Can they thus deccivo tho people, and
inako them belicvo that they ore not the
very 6amo men, with tho samo notions,
ideas and purposes that havo brought all
this devastation upon our country ! Tho
people were onco deceived by this chango
of name on tho part of tho enemies of
Democracy. That was in part, tho fault
of tho tricksters. Tho next timo it will
bo the pcoplo's fault.

Col. John Q. Frkkze :
Hear Sin The past week lias been
ono of unusual interest, and if exciting to
spectators, you can imagino what it ia to
participants. In former letters 1 have
mentioned of our being detached from
Bank's Corps and transfcred to McDowell's.
Shields' Division was also sent to Fred
ericksburg, thus making McDowell's Corps
I i Mlt 1 .1 1 i . 1 1

aration was made for nn immediate nd-
vauco towards Richmond, which is only 00
miles from there. Tho President and
Cabinet roviowed tho Corps preparatory to
our ttart, tents and baggage wcro turned
in, and tho numbor of wagons reduced one
half. But the wily Jackson spoiled all
theso well-laid and costly plans, by driving
Gen. Banks' weakened forcoiuto Maryland,
and threatening Washington and our bor
der. Upon receiving intelligence of his
r aid King's Division was marched across
tho river, Shields' was sent to rciuforco
Geary near Strausburg, tho Pcnna. Ro
servo kept in reserve and Ord's Division,
in which wo nro, marched towards Wash
ington. Tho Infantry went up tho Poto
mac by water, and tho Artillery and Cav
alry ordered overland by forced marches.
Tho roads wcro in an awful condition;
and wo wcro frequently obliged to double
teams. Tho rebel huts used wcro of a
comfortable description, and those in tho
vicinity of Acquia and Oecoguan creeks
showed that tho rebels had a strong force
posted along tho Potomac last winter.
Tho country is poorly cultivated, and the
villages dilapidated and ruined. Stafford
Court Homo stands almost alono in tho
woods. It is a quaiut old building, and
contains many curious records. Some
date back ovor 200 years. Our men im
mediately seized them. I regretted it, as
it smacks of vandalism to deface or destroy
the records of a court ; yet as I saw ev
erything going I seized n few old docu
ments. They aro in tho stylo of "yo au
cient tymo" when all accounts in this col
ony were kept in tobacco. For instance
"wun quarto of wyno, 12 lbs tobacco; wuu
yardc of flanel 78 lbs etc" Among other
things were the bonds entered into by
Geo. Washington to marry Mrs. Custis.
They wore very heavy. I havo boon told
by inhabitants that Gcorgo had tho frail
ties of his sex. Tho gibbet and jail wcro
the only surroundings.
On the third day's march wo wcro or
dered to Mannassas Junction iu place of Af
exandria. On reaching tho Junction, wo
learned of Jackson's raid, and tho excite
ment it had created North. Geary was
driven from Whito Plains and Duryca
from Warrinton Junction. Tho former
was sent towards Winchester, and tho 1 at
tcr was put in our Division. Thoro was
considerable excitement at tho Junction, as
thoy wcro momentarily expecting an at
tack. Before Duryca.s arrival tho only
troops there were tho 12th Pa. Cavalry,
and they had no horses.
Tho placo looks vastly different from
what it did in March. The rubbish has
been gathered up, dead horses and
soldiers buried, and tho fields aro covered
with verdure. A Hotel has b:en erected
for tho accommodation of travelers.
No timo was given us for rest. Wc left
our camp about daylight of tho 20th and
traveled rapidly towards tho mountains
ovor a beautiful and level country. Tho
whole division encamped for tho night at
Thoroughfare Gap. Our next days inarch
was through a beautiful and well cultiva
ted country, but very mountainous. Du
ring the day we passed tho rcsideucc of
Tom. Marshall. Ou Saturday wc learned
tho whereabouts of Jackson, and in order
to cut off his retreat it was necessary to
make a forced march. Steady inarching
overbad roads for a week had nearly used
up both men and horses, yet wo rcachod
this plaeo that night, having traveled 20
miles ovor tho worst roads in Virginia.
To add to out trials it rained steadily du
ring tho' after-noon and night, many men
and horses gave out. I never want to go
through Manassas Gap again.
Tho day beforo our arrival Shields en
tered this placo, and captured 200 prison
ers, one field picco and two caissons, 00
wjgons, and recaptured some of Maryland
1st, whioh was so cut up hero. I feci it
my duty to contradict tho statements about
the cruelty of tho rebels to our sick and
wounded. Tho Adjutant of Maryland 1st
who was taken prisoner &ays that all were
treated with respect and kindness, and
that tho citizens of Strousburg took' the
sick from tho hospitals to their own houses
and trcatod them as their own children.
Yesterday (Sunday) wo heard heavy
cannonading in tho direction of Strausburg
and tho various Brigades and Divisions
uudcr command of Maj. Gen. McDowell
passed through tho town cn route for the
sceno of action. It was rumored that Fre
mont occupied Strausburg with 17,000
men, while our forco nurabored 20,000.
Jackson has about 40,000. All tbo m on
woro highly elated, as tho capturo of tho
enemy seemed 'certain. A Brigado of
Cavalry under Gen Bayard dashed through
towu followed by four companies of tho
"Buck-tails" under Lieut. Col, Kano to
act as flankers, Then camo alternately
Infantry and Artillery, whilo Gonerals
were so numerous as to escape notice,
Abdlt three miles from town tho column
was halted, and tho rumor passed along
tho lino that Fremont was not at Straus
burg, and that Jaokson had escaped.

Resolved, That we, as brother soldier

Ton Conts Per Day lor Labor.
It is stated that "hundreds af runaway
and emancipated negroes arc employed in
Chester uud Lancaster counties at tin cents
per day !'' If that is tho price to which
the abolitionists havo reduced labor in
those counties, already, to what price will
thoy reduce it by the timo they carry out
their cntiro programme? Tho question
is quito interesting to Northern white la
borers, for, not only tho counties of Ches
ter and Lancaster arc concerned iu this
matter, but all tho counties in tho Free
States. If tho Abolitionists in Congress
succeed in liberating tho four or five mill
ions of negroes iu tho South, wages may
bo reduced to ten cents per day or less, all
over the North.
Wc presume tho negroes that aro work
ing for ten cents in tho counties named,
aro employed by Abolitionists, for that is
about the amount of wages those exten
sively philanthropic patriots would be
likely to offer to "tho poor down trodden
black man." When required to confer a
practical benefit upon the negro, by diving
into their own pockets, these soft-hearted
gentlemen givo tho very poorest proofs of
their sincerity of principle. After they
shall havo succeeded in overrunning the
free States with freed negroes, it will be
to the enemies of their mad policy that the
horde of helpless and wretched black vag
abonds will Wtyo to look for actual, prac
tical kindness and benevolence.
The Abolitionists will content themselves
with having set tho negroes free, aud will
do uo moro for them, except to hire the
best of them, when they can, for ten cents
or less per day !
Tho Valley Spirit says that "over ono
hundred 'contrabands' arrived in Cham
bersburg on Monday aud Tuesday of last
week." Fifty a day in ono village ! La
bor wi'l soon bo ten cents per day in that
county. What say tho-laboring white men
to all this ? They will answer in Novem

HftVon on S something of
' the extent of tho destruction ; aud al
though tho wreck about thcro docs not
seem to bo a titho in comparison with
that farther down tho river, enough is
Vs to satisfy the spectator that tho
lumbermen and others interested in tho
UUKII1US3 IllUIIg UIU 1IIIU UilYU UUYIJl' tUUUl
cd such a calamity since tho Lehigh region
was inhabited. Wo learn that nbout 0
o'clock in tho afternoon of Wodnoeday, tho
upper boom gave way, driving tho immense
. crowd of logs into tho onq below. Hero
I they hung for about an hour, tho strong
'cribbing work resisting tho immense force,
when tho lower boom also went out,
carrying with it the past ye
nonriv -n n,n l.linrtncn in
nearly all tho lumbermen in that region.
Ono of tho most extonsivo operators esti
mated tho loss to bo not less than 40 mill
ions feet of logs, besides a great bulk of
tho manufactured lumber that was piled
along tho banks. Most of the mills too
are seriously injured, Among tho heavi
est sufferers at Whito Haven, perhaps arc
Keek, Childs & Co., who lose in logs 2
millions feet ; S, Saylor & Co., 3j mill
ions ; Whittakcr & Blakesly, 2 millions ;
A. F. Peters, 1 1 millions ; Brown & Stod
dard, 2 millions; J. W. Adams, 1J mill
ions ; to gethcr with a large number of
others, who lono in various amounts.
Nearly all tho mills on Bear Cooek are
badly injured. Purscll & McKcan lose a
large amount of lumber. Tho dam at
Yohc's mil! is gone, nnd perhaps others.
Au intelligent lumberman estimates tho
loss in log-5 alono at Whito Haven to
amounts to 8020,000 ; which, together
with the loss in lumber and tho stoppage
of all business for tho season, by tho de
struction of navigation, amounts to almost
utter dessruction to the business prospects
of upper Lehigh.
As far as could bo ascertained, but two
dams in tho Lehigh (Nos. 4 and 0) were
known to bo swept away. Tho ono at
White Haven still stands. A number of
locks, guard banks, &c, and in many pla
ces the cntiro canal, arc washed out. The
number of lives lost it is impossible as yet
to estimate, though wo believe the first re
ports in this respect wero much exaggera
ted. It is said tho principal destruction of
life was among the boatmen, and these may
amount to upwards of a hundred,
Capt. E Dodsou, of Whito Haven, well
known to many of our citizens as captain
of the packet boat that formerly run on
the Lehigh canal, together with his neph
ew, (a boy of 10,) was swept from the
look at Pcnn Haven aud drowned. Their
bodies haro sinco been recovered.
Further dowu the river tho samo terri
ble destruction marked the course of the
flood. At Mauch Chunk the water is said
to have been 15 feet high in tho principal
street, aud all tho lower part of tho town
was washed away, including tho gas
works, which arc said to bo totally de
stroyed. Tho large bridge of tho Lehigh
Valley It, It., at tho narrows, is gone, as
well as every bridge along tho whole riv
er, including those at Catasaqua, Allen
town and Bethlchm. Tho lower part of
all these towns wero inundated, with much
loss of lifo aud property. At south Beth
lchm, wc understand, the water ran mto
the third story of several houses.
The canal of tho Lehigh Coal and Nav
igation Company is so seriously damaged
that it will require tho whole season to put
it in order. Indeed, it is doubted wheth
er tho Company will attemp to repair it
abovo Mauch Chunk. Tho opinion is
pretty general that it would ba far better
to abandon it entirely and substitute a rail
road. Tho Beaver Meadow If. R. it is
said will require three months io repair.
Since tho abovo was iu typo, Mr. Drum-
holler, tho Superintendent between here
aud Whito Haven, brings later advices!
from below. As tho water subsides, the
destruction is found to be still greater than
wc havo stated abovo. It is ascertained
that 19 locks and Iti dams on tho upper
division havo been swept away, between
Whito Haven and Mauch Chunk, and that
90 bodies of tho persons drowned wcro
found and buried up to Sunday night,
whilo a very largo number arc still missing.
Harrowing stories of suffering cuuio from
all along tho line, amoug them that cvory
wooden houso in tho town of Weissport (a
thriving villago four miles below Mauch
Chunk) was swept off In ouo of th cm
was a family of 13, adults and children,
three of whoso dead bodies havo been
found, and tho balanco supposed to bo loit
thus wipiug out an entire family. Several
cases of this kind aro reported.

Tho Tax Bill. '
An Exciting Discussion in the Senate.
Tho Internal tax bill again camo up ns
the special order, on Friday.
Mr Anthony, of Rhodo Island, moved
to reconsider tho voto ofyestcrday evening
by which a tax of 82 por head was put
upon slaves, or, upon each person claiming
tho scrvico or labor of a porton as a slavo.
Mr Cowan, of Pennsylvania, urged that
taxation must go hand in hand with rop
rcscntatiou, and all know how tho slaves
wore represented under the Constitution.
That was tho fundamental principle of tho
tho American revolution, anil to depart
from it now was to assail tho Constitution
and disregard the fair bargain of tho fa
thors of different sections for tho benefit of
a united eouutry. Mr. 0. spoke at length
and declared ho thought tliat any man
who wanted to got rid of the bargain ought
to say at onco ho was no Union man. Ho
urged that tho uicasuro would bear on
loyal mon unjustly in the slavo States, and
as to tho 82 per head, he did not belicvo
that was tho object. The purpose, ho was
sorry to believe, was something eUo ; and
yet the inou who would impo30 this tax
would free tho slaves of rebels aud thus
destroy this source of taxation. These
opinions ho should freely express ; should
reproach the Senate, bo dictatrorial as
some Say bo dogmatic that was tho word
if need be.
Mr. Wado, of Ohio, (in his scat) nil
Mr. Cowan, after a pause when tho
honorable Senator has settled a little no
couut with his colleague in the other House,
it may bo necessary for mo to notice that
kind of remark. Until then he will excuse
Mr. Cowan continued, asserting the
frcdom of debate, and said that when ho
said he intended to be dogmatic, ho meant
that he intended to express his own opinion
Mr. Wade responded warmly, denoun
cing tho lecturing of the Scnato and the
reproaching members with doing unconMi
tutional things. He regarded it as pre
sumption, especially in a person from the
backwoods of Pennsylvania. lie had
never heard of the gentleman as a great
constitution expounder. When they were
to bo lectured ho de.-irod that it should
come from one who had authority for such
a course. He snokc of Mr. 0. havimr on.

Mr. Cowan remarked that he nvrrhtbea
very humble individual, and might be in
experienced and unl nswn; but he ras hir;
as the representative of Pennsylvania rep
resenting throe millions of people, and was
not goiug to apologize for his people, for
his inexperience or his youth. He never
understood that age and long service here
would sanctify folly or give character to
billingsgate. If the Senator who made an
unwarrantable attack upon him can recon
cile that conduct to his owu conscience and
sense of propriety, ho wascontont to leavo
it there. lie was hero from his State to
assist in preserving the Constitution and
restoring tho Union, and if ho defended tho
South in that duty and resisted projects
which ho considered wrong, he had nothing
After further debate, the vote was taken
