lloro wo wcro within a few miles 0 or 8
of tho tcvvihlo battlo progressing near
V(Uianisport, Md. Thursday night wo
camped in tho woods North of Ilagers
towu, and next day Friday marched
through that City and encamped South of
llagerstown, uoar tho Rattle lucid. At
midnight tho order was given tp pack up
This caused sorao consternation in tho
Army, as tho Rattlo Lino Yas already
formed, and wo then expected to. try th.P
mettle of the Pennsylvania Militia. AH
was in motion and commotion, but soon tho
order was pountcniumdod. It is proper to
ay, that thq mou behaved bravely on this
Saturday uiomiug, wo ro-marched into
Ilarrcratown and encamped abovo tho City.
On Sunday, tho Regtmcut mafched back,

that evening pitched our tents hero in
''Camp Ward." Wo may lay hero to
night or wo may bo moved to Harper s
Soldiers uevcr know their tuto or acstiny,

of tho "War. Wo hayo scon cuoqgh of its

Tho following is a statement of M, J.
Coble, bugler in Coptain punter's com
pany of the first Maryfapd, Battalion o,f
Cavalry, and Potcr J. Oauhhn, a privato
in Captain Colees' company of the samo
battalion, who, wcro taken prisoners at
Harpors Ferry, yesterday morning, and
They staged, that our forces at Harper's
Ferry numbered from ciglt to ten thous
and infantry and cavalry most of the
latter, of whom there wcro about threo
thousand, making their cscapo beforo tho
surrender of the place They Btato that
the rebel forco which first advanced upon
Harper's Ferry was abot twenty thou
sand, under tho cpmmond of Gen. Hill.
Colonel D. H. Miles, Acting Brigadier
General, was in command of our fqrees at
Harper's Ferry, and made a good fight,
notvyithstanding tho overwhelming num
bers of tho enemy. Ho retained tho com
mand until eight o'clook yesterday (Mon
day) morning, when ha was severely, if
not mortally, wounded by a piece o.f shell,
in the left leg. After this, General White
who was present and engaged in tho con
test throughout, tool$ tho command.
On Saturday morning the rebols com
menced an attack on our batteries on the
Maryland Heights and. our forces there,
with artillery and a strong force of infan
try. Fighting paufinucd at this point
through tho day, and thero wero a good
many killed and wounded on both sides.
jVbout four P. M. tho rebels were largely
reinforced, and wero then a such over
whelming numbers that wo were obliged
to abandon tho Maryland Iloight? and ro
treat across tho river.
During tho day tho rebols mado their
appearance upoa L,audoun Heights, upon
(ho Virginia side of tho river, with their
gjgqal porps, which attempted to commence
their opperations from tho top of the
Block House. Thoy rcro shewed from
Camp JKH, and at tho third she)! djsap:
pcared. They were shelled from Bolivcr
Heights, biit dd nof rctiirn tho firo.

The cannonading from this time was
terrible Our batteries frqm Jolivcr
Hoights, Harper's Ferry and Camp Hill
wcro in full play in rcspon.o, and tho very
fountains, rooks and valloys sepmpi tfl bo
alivo with tho detonations of heavy artil
lery. Tho robels woro in very strong
force not less than IittecB tnousanu moq,
and tho engagement was dssporato ani

and rjuict rcjgnod throqeh tho Iqng njght.
Durinu tho night tho rebels, wero not juap
tivo, and at daylight on Monday morning
thov opened with terrible power from sev
en or eight different points. In fact, our
were killed,, while a few of our men wcro
a,lso, placed hefs du combat.
During this engagement Colonel D. n.
Miles received a dangorous and probably
fttal wound in tho calf of th,eeft lug, from
tho explosion of a shell, which toro tho
fleshy part of tho leg entirely off, and caus
ed, a profuse and exhausting loss of blood.
Ilia leg wac amputatod at tho knea by the
surgeon of tho Eighth Now York Cavalry,
and tho Colouel placed in, as comfortable
position as possible. The wound is pro
nouueod mortal by tho surgeon, and tho
Colonel is undoubtably dead beforo this.
i short timo only intervened boforo tho
white flag was raised and tho surrender, of
tho strong position, with its bravo defend
ers and immenso store of ammunition, ten
dered tho enemy. Tho surrender was
made at 10 A. M., and to General (lill,
commanding ono qf tho divisions, of G.cn.
Joekson's army. For an hour tho white
flag was raised, the rebel batteries on Lou
don Heights, Maryland Heights, and a
small battery ou tho banks of tho Potomac
river, continued playing on our position,,
the rebel officers offering as an excuse for
this gross violation of the rules of war,
that tley d,id not observe that wo asked a
suspension of hostilities. Fortunately, but
littlo damago was dono by tho rebel prac
Gonontl Hill repciyed, tho surrender of

parade ground, aud fixed his headquarters
there. His first question, after glancing
o,ver tho eight thousand infantry drawn up
unarmed in lino before b,iin, was., "Where

General Hill is believed to, liavo led tho
robels on our right, which was under Hooks,
or and Franklin. Aftor a most obetinata
resistance tho robols fell back about threo
miles by 11 o'clock A.M. Our contro
under General Sumnor, was also engaged
oarly in tho morning by Jackson, who had
crossed from Harper's Ferry last night
with 2C.000 m,en, snd artillery and in
fantry wero engagod despsrately until
about 2 o'olock P. M., when tho rebels
gavo way, but held one commanding picee
of woods with artillery.
Several ineffectual attempts woro made
to tako this position by our troops in tho
forenoon, but it wqs, held by the robels
until 5 o'clock P. M., when our artillery
dislodged them. General Longstrcct com
mauded tho rob els on our left against Burn-
Tho engagement was uninterrupted thero
from early in the forenoon until 5 o'clock
in tho afternoon, when Burnside was left in
possession of tho field, having crossed An
tictam creek and fairly driven tho enemy
fro.m his positio.n.
The loss on our bido is said to havo
been nearly eight thousand. The rebel
leas was heavier iu eonscquenco of our pre
ponderance of artillery or their want of
ammunition. Our killed a.nd wounded
are all within cur lines', and tho field is
ours at all points. At dark the rebels
had yielded, at every point, and our men,
aro on the field sleeping on their arms.
The battle will bo renewed iu tho morning
if the rebels have ammunition enough and
can rally for a s'.aud. In no single in
stance did our men yield any position to
tho rebels to day. Tho army fought with
uuexamplcd heroism, aud their coufidcucc
in McClcllan certainly gained tho day.

The Rebellion in, Bradford.
The people of Bradford county havo so
long submitted, to tho dictation of Davo
Wilmot, that tho news of a rebellion
agaist this despot, at first, seemed to bo
almost incredible. King David with his
High Priest Landon, havo, for tho past
two or threo yoars, carried their infamous
plots of plunder, and schemes of negro
emancipation and, negro equality to such
leughts, as to outrago every eonso of de
cency and propriety, and, have insultingly
set at defiance tho wishes of every oonsor-
vativo, honest man in their district.
An attempt by this tyrant, to force the
abolition Preacher, George Landon, of
"Tonnage ta swindle" notoriety, upon
the pcoplo o.f this district as a candidato
for Congros, has resulted in an open out
break, and "secession." A, mass meeting
upon a call, signed by more than five hun
drcd of tho outraged tax payers of that
county, assembled atTowanda, and form
ed an entire now ticket, headed by Henry
W. Tracy of Standing Stone, for Congress,
Mr. Tracy is an old Hdo whig of tho pqn,
B,ervative school, and as a representative
from Bradford County, during tho session
when tho republican party, with Landcn,
at its head, sold itself to tho schemers of
thoso soulless corporations, tho "Penna.
Central," and "Sunbury and Erie" Rail
Roads, stood almost tho solitary represen
tative of that party n the House, and de
nounced their votes as monstrous, corrupt,
and as an outrago upon the rights of tho
commonwealth, He charged that party,
(which then had a majority of nearly two.
thirds in both Houses,) with being respon
sible for theso iniquities, and warned them
of tho indignation of an outraged constitu
ency. His appoala wcro in vain. Iis
words of bitter, burning invective, and dc
nunciation fell upon cars surfeited aud
cloyed with the clink of tho almighty dol
lar, and then heeded them not. An an
nual incqmo of nearly four hundred thou
sand dollar, was vqtod into the coffora of
lhes.c giant corporations, and George Laiv
don, tho man by whoso voto, this outrago
upon the tax payers qt tno commonwealth
was perpetrated, pockets tho pripe pf Ms
infamy, and now asks tho pcoplo qf this
district to send him to Congress I
When that patty overstepping all bounds j
of decency and respects for tho riglits of
tho pcoplo districted tho Stato in such a
manner as to disfranphiso thousands of tax
payors, lur. J. racy again opposed tno

of tho leaders on cither side ; that in the

littlo hopo that a democrat ca.n bo elected;
nuccd so littlo, tuat no ono wislios tno

ted. It may then dovolvo upon tho voters
of this district to chooso between Landon
and Traoy. For ourselves, wo havo nq
hesitation in saying, that of tho two, wo
should prefer an honest man, to a rogue,
While Mr. Tracy's votes upon tho rmcs-
tion of abolition have not met tho approval
of democrats, ho is compared to Wilmot

We quote from a debate in the Senatq
March 11th, 1802.
Air. CLYMER. Mr. Speaker, tho
Senator from Bradford asserts that "this
question of slavery meets us every wlicrp
it meets ijs jjcrc, at iioinc, &m ou thq
stern and bloody battlo field," and ex
claims in excited aud angry terms ,ltvc
must meet ." But how s '.'Necessarily
in ono of threo ways," says thu Senator.
"First we can submit to hp ruled and
ruined by it. Second tec can continue
as we hays been doing -fight the rcbcllioi
with one handmaid hold up, slavery with the
other , until loth parties are exhausted;
then settle our difficulty by allmcing or by
conqxlling the scccdug States to fall bach
into the Union with slavery, slave rcptc
scntatin and all its concomitants as nforc
tim,c. I hayo feared.," Gays (ho Senator.
