- ' A church and a small "building were used
as hospitals. The latter was at the corner
of the Woods, and within one hundred and
fifty rods of the enemy's batieries A white
flag floated over it ; but, whether from de
sign or was repeatedly battered
by balls from their cannon. It is said to
r have been burned by the enemy after the
retreat.1 The church was further off, on one
of the roads leading to Centreville. W. A.

pitalpictcrres its aspect in a letter publish-
an excharae this morning: ''It was!
a scene fob frightful and sickening to wit
ness,' m nth more describe There were in
it, scattered thickly on the floor and in the
galleries, sixty or seventy, wounded iu ev
ery possible way arms and legs shot off,
some dead, and scores gasping for water
aid aid; The pulpit was appropriated for
a surgeon's room, and the communiontable
of pious anarchy became an amputation ta
ble, baptised in willing blood, and conse
crated to the holy use of Liberty and Law !
The road and woods, on either side and all
around, are strewn with maimed and mutil
ated heroes, and the balls from 'rifled can
non go over os like winged devils. There
sit a colonel, with his arm bound op, ask
icg to be pnt on bis horse and led back to
his regiment; here lies a captain with a
grape shot though his head, and blood and
brains oozing out as we touch him tenderly
to see if he is dead ; and yonder comes in
a pale chaplain, cut by a canister, while
sword in hand, he led his brave parish, in
tha same of Almighty God, to the fight.

- Pubs for the future conduct of the war
are still produced by some ol the New York
.journalists. The New York Timet thinks
that a new campaign should be instantly
Commenced by attacks upon the Southern
Atlantic and Gulf ports. In fact, the Times
says there is! not a single Southern city
which is not at our mercy: Charleston,
Savannah, Mobile and New Orleans might
one and all be captured by a small naval
ahdmflitary force. The Evening Post thinks
that flytngqaadron, carrying a thousand
to fifteen1 hundred troops, should at once
menace every assailable point along the
Southern linen: Charleston, Savannah, Pen
saeola. Mobile and New Orleans are acces
sible to gunboats, and the tha two last can
be captured. The N. Y. Herald raises the
cry for three great armies, each of two hun
dred thousand men the army of the Mis
siisippi, the army of the Potomac, and. the
the army of the Atlantic sea board and let
each ba put in motion southward with the

Mr. Editor ; ;
; Our Regiment has, as you will per
ceive by the caption of this letter, left Camp
Biddle. On the 23rd 'we took the Cumber
land Valley Rail Road,nd arriving at Har
risbnrg at five, o'clock, P..M., where, on
account of new recruits of the different
companies not being full equipped, many
were obliged to remain, but have since join
ed the Regiment at this Camp. Oar march
through Baltimore, different from many oth
erswas peaceable. The Union sentiment
seems predominent there. Flags were dis
placed, and good feeling was manifested
everywhere.- '
This Camp is situated on the suburbs of
the city and near the encampment of the
Pennsylvania 7th, which accompanied us
from Camp Curtin. The streets of the city
are and have been for the last three months,
thronged with soldiers. Regiments are ar
riving daily from their different camps.
The force in and about the city, at writing,
is estimated at one hundred thousand, all
equipped, and ready to march at a moments
notice.: Pennsylvania is well represented
in this body: The 6th, 7ih, 8th, 9th, 10th,
1 l:h, and others,to our knowledge are here,
and still others are coming in. These men,
as s body, are robust, well drilled, and
many having the latest improved arms
They make a fine appearance.. Credit is
doe Governor Curtin in meeting this emer
gency. Occasionally we are permitted to visit the
city. The Navy Yard seems to attract the
attention of many of the soldiers. This
Yard is, in many respects, superior to any
in the United Slates. Workmen are con
tinually employed in manufacturing muni
lions of war of nearly every description. It
is protected by the heaviest and latest im
proved gnns, and one would naturally ar
rive at the conclusion, that if our Southern
neighbors could view them, and the men in
arms, they would find that "forbearance
has ceased to be a virtue."
While writing the above, 1 heard a loud
report in the direction of the Navy Yard. I
have since learned that the Rocket House,
by some carelessness of the workmen, has
blown op, killing two men and wounding
To day we were mustered into the United
States service for three years or du
ring the war, unless 'sooner discharged.
The indications are that' this Regiment will
move farther South this week.
I mast close or miss the mail.

Eow an Army Moth
There are a great many, things beside
men and guns, essential to an army, and a
commander about to lead an army into a
hostile country, first sees that the commis
sariat is well provided with provisions, that
there are ample means of transportation,
and that there is a reserve of ammunition
and clothing, and a good supply of hospital
stores and medicines. All the preliminary
orders for the march having been carefully
made, the "order to march" is communica
ted to the several commanding officers of
divisions, brigades and regiment, but not
published in orders. The troops are dis
tributed in accordance with the character of
the country. In a very open country, a
large proportion of cavalry would be at the
head of the column, but generally it is dis
tributed throughout the line. The artillery
should be in the rear of the first foot regi
ment. An advance of rear guard of mounted
troops one or two companies should be
detailed each day ; and the regiment that
has the right, of the line one day shonld
be next day in the rear, in a woody or
mountainous :ountry,detachments of flank
ers and skirmishers are thrown out to the
right and left of the column at the distance
of one or two hundred paces, to keep a
sharp look out, and prevent any such dis
astrous and gratuitous experience as those
painfully and recently familiar to us in con
nection with the ambuscade on the road to
Vienna. The column having been formed
a quarter or half distance, and the baggage
train assembled in the rear, protected by a
guard selected from each regiment for its
own baggage, the column is put in motion
and the march commences with the same
regularity as would be observed by aregi
ment moving in or out of a garrison town,
the bands playing, the light infantry with
arms slopes, and those of the riflemen
slung over the shoulder, the officers with
swords drawn,exact wheeling distance pre
served, and perfect silence observed. Af
ter having proceeded for a short distance in
this manner, the word of command ' route
step" is given by the general at the head of
the leading batallion, and passed quickly
to the rear. The captains, instead of con
tinuing at the head of their companies.d raw
back to the rear of them, that they may see
any man of their respective companies who
attempt to quit the ranks without leave.
The soldiers then carry their arms in any
manner convenient for them, conversation
and smoking being ordinarily allowed.
The Pewbstlvania Armt. The entire
force of Reserve Regiments from Pennsyl
vania is to be placed under command of
General McCatl, by order t of General Mc
Cletlan. Eleven thousand of the Reserves
have been sent forward already, and . the
only remaining regiment of iniautry will be
at the seat of war in a few days. The artil
lery which will be attached to this Penn
sylvania . array will comprise forty-eifcbt
guns, consisting partly of rifled cannon.
The guns range from 32-pounders to 6 poun
ders. As soon as they are ready they are
to be sent forward by batteries. The first
battery goes South on, Sunday night, under
command of LieaU Col. Campbell, and the
other batteries will follow in a short time.
The cavalry ret i ment is almost ready, and
the men are all in camp. As soon as they
are mounted they will be sent to join the
main body. : The Governor is much grati
fied at this mark of . appreciation of Penn
sylvania, and the little remaining to com
plete his preparations will be executed with
Rewi from the South." "
- We are indebted,-says the Beading Ga
zette, to J. R. Dunglisoo, Esq., associate
editor of the Philadelphia Enquirer, for sev
eral copies of the Sew- Orleans-Picayune, the
latest of -which is dated July 26th one
week ago. They ' are the only Southern
papers we have seen for -three months, and
on account of their rarity, possess an inter
est which did not formerly attach to them.
We find them filled with glowing reports
of the Battle of Manassas, with such head
ings as these: "Glorious Victory1' ' 'TAe
Enemy 80,000 &rotg ' ' Their Loss 10,000
to 15,000," " Washington Overspread with
Gloom:' "The Enemy Completely Routed!"
The editorial articles are' upon such sub
jects as the ''Confiscaion of Southern Prop
erty," the "Folly of Invasion" and the
'Usurpations of Lincoln," which naturally
have the uppermost place in the i minds of
the people of the South at the present time.
The issue of Friday, the 26th contains, a
leader on "The Lesson of Victory," from
which we make the following extract, to
show that the rebels have been inspired
with fresh courage by the 'fatal blunder
which forced a retreat of the National forces
from before Manassas when victory was
almost within our grasp that they still per
sist in misrepresenting the patriotic effons
of the Northern people to maintain the Fed
eral Government and preserve the Union,
as a war for the subjugation of the South ;
and that, flushed with joy at one victory,
they are not yet prepared to listen to any
proposals for peace and compromise short
of what it would be ineffably disgraceful
for our Government to allow the jnqualli
fled acknowledgment of the independence
of the rebel States :
'The first pitched battle of the war, lias
given a wonderful victory to the arms of
the South.
"A large army, splendidly equipped, pre
pared and furnished at all points, under the
eye of the most experienced General of our
times, and ent forth with all the pomp of
triumphant procession, marching to an easy
victor more than an expedition expecting
an enemy has been utterly defeated and
disorganized. The field of battle is heaped
up with the bodies ol the slain, and the dis
persed fugitives left behind them, as the
spoils of the victorious Confederates; aston
iehing amounts of 6tores of all kinds, arms,
mnnitions and equipments, their famous
batteries of artillery, and if the report
speaks true, ihe war carriage of the boast
ful General, sent forward to be ready to take
him in state into the Confederate city of
"It is not easy to exaggerate the moral
effects of this victory ; the confirmation
which it gives of the confidence of the
Southern people in the power of their arms
to uphold the cause of independence ; tne
blow which it gives to the boastfulr.ess of
the North that its armies had only to advance
in order to drive us back or crush us into
submission ; the shock which it must inflict
on the financial calculations of the North,
that a speedy rubjugation of the South
wouldsoon revive as to strength
en the basis or credit for meeting the enor
mous expenditures already incurred but
not provided for, and the foreign effect in
showing the uniledneas, the stability, and
the physical power and military skill ot the
South as the proof of its capacity to main
tain its independence.
''These are grand results over which the
South may well exult, as fruits on which it
has the right to calculate, cf its first grand
victory, and to be devoutly thankful for, as
omens that the favor of Heaven will con
tinue to be given to a holy cause.
"But we must not suppose, in our exul
tations and our comforting?, that the win
ning of one great battle i the end of this
war, or more than the beginning of an end
which may be yet a long time on. 1 he on
ly possible end of thi war :s in the aban
donment of the Northern claim to dominion
over us. A Southern defeat might protract
that issue; a teries of Southern reverses
might devolve the final conquest of our lib
erties on another generation ; for in this con
flict there is no peaceful submission possi
ble but in the depopulation of the country
and the extermination of the race. Peace,
therefore, must come only in one way : the
peace of an acknowledged independence,
and the withdrawing ot the soldiery of the

Every editor of the United States should
publish, and every person should read, the
following well-considered argument against
the practice of economy in time of war,and
why money should be put in circulation.
These timely considerations occur in a ser
mon recenty delivered by an enlightened
and patriotic clergyman :
"The state of the times demands liberalty
and a generous expenditure on the part of
those who have the means whoso income
is greater than their wants. Such as these
should not study economy should not aim
to save as much and spend as little as pos
sible. I bear many ot this class talking of
entrenchments, of reducing their expenses,
of denying themselves and families this
and that to which they have been accus
tomed. ! say no This is a mistaken pol
icy. Why should you save ? You are in
no danger of suffering. Why should you
spend less, you have . more than enough,
while thousands are wanting employ ment
and bread, and have nothing 1 What is to
become of this class if every rich man, ev
ery family whose income exceeds, by much
or little, their current expenses, begins
economizing and diminishing expenditures
to the lowest point possible? What is to
become ot these without work or money 1
They most live. They must have bread.
Give them employment and they will earn
it. If you do not they must still have bread,
that is certain, and somebody must furnish
it. No, I say aain saving closely with
those who have abundant means is false
policy in such times as the present. Sup
pose your income has been annually four
thousand dollars, and has now fallen to three
thousand and suppose you have lived at
an expense of three thousand dollars is it
wisdom, is it mercy, to reduce your expen
ses to two thousand dollars ou the plea of
hard times? It is not hard times for you.
Better far keep on spending your three
thousand dollars. Do not expect to save
anything while the war lasts and thousands
are in danger of being thrown out of em
ployment. Live as you have lived spend
all yonr income, even if yoo never did before-
Every new hat or coat, every new
sofa or carpet, every well conducted peri
odical,, or household ornament, furnishes
work and bread to industrious men. Every
new bonnet or dress gives employment to
needle women who are struggling with
poverty and suffering. How much better
to pay them the money, and leave them
their self-respect and independence, than
by and by to give it them as a charity, hu
miliating and painful."

A Who OYcrrnled General Seott !
The Hew York Times has the following in
relation to a conversation wiih .Gen. Scott,
on the Tuesday before the late battle. It is
reported, now that we-know the result of
his advice bein disregarded, but it shows
that the old hero it yet in the full posses
sion of his faculties and justly appreciates
the military position of the country and the
true point where the rebels ought to be
struck, ss is evident to any one who takes
a glance at the map :
On the Tuesday preceeding the battle,
Gen. Scott, at his own table, in presence of
hi aids and a single guest, discussed the
whole subject of this war, in all its parts,
and with the utmost clearness and accuracy .
He had a distinct and well-defined opinion
on every point connected with it, and stated
what his plan would be for bringing it to a
close, if ihe management of it had been
left in bis hands. The main object of the
war, he said, was to bring the people of the
rebellious States to feel the pressure of the
Government ; to compel them to return to
their obedience and loyalty. And this must
be done with the least possible expenditure
of life, compatible with the attainment of
the object. No Christian nation can be
justified, he said, in waging war in such a
way as shall destroy 50 1 lives, when the
object of the war can be attained at a cost
of 500. Every man killed, beyond the
number absolutely required, is murdered.
Hence, he looked upon all shooting of pick
ets, all scouting forays not required in order
to advance the general object of the war,
all destruction ot life, on either side, which
did not contribu'e to the general result, as
so many acts ot unjustifiable homicide.
If the matter had been left to him, he said
he would have commeced by a perfect
blockade of every Southern port on the At
lantic and the Gulf. , Then he would have
collected a large force at the capital for de
fensive purposes, and another large one on
the Mississippi lor offensive operations.
The summer mouths, during which it is
madness to take troops south of St. Louis,
should have been devoted to tactical instruc
tion, and with the first frosts of autumn he
would have taken a column of 80,000 well
disciplined troops down the Mississippi and
taken every important point on that river,
N. Orleans included. "It could have been
done, he said, with greater ease, with les
loss of life, and with far more important
results than would attend the marching of
an army to Richmond " At eight points
the river would have been defended, and
eight battles would have been necessary ;
but in every one of litem success could have
been made certain for us. The Mississippi
and the Atlantic once ours, the Southern
States would have been compelled, by the
natural and inevitable pressure ol events to
seek, by a return to the Union, escape
from the ruin that would speedily over
whelm them out of it. "This," said he, "was
my plan. But I am only a subordinate. It
is my business to give advice a hen it is
asked, and to obey orders when they are
given, i snail do v. mere are gentlemen in
the Cabinet who know much more about
war than 1 do and who have far greater in
fluence then 1 have in determining the plan
of the campaign. There never was a more
iust and upright man than the President
never one who desired more sincerity to
promote the best interest of the country. i
But there are men among his advisers who
consult their own resentments far more
than the dictates of wisdom and experience
"and these men will probably decide the
plan of the campaign " 1 shall do, or at
tempt, whatever I am ordered to do.. "But
they must not hold me responsible." If I
am ordered to go to Richmond, I shall en
deavor to do it. But I know perfectly well
that they have no conception of the ditficul
ties we shall encounter. 1 know the coon
try how admirably adapted it is to defence
and how rcbolutely.and obstinately it will
be defended. I would like nothing belter
than to take Richmond ; now that it has
been disgraced by becoming the capital of
the rebel Confederacy. I feel a resentment
towards it, and should like nothing better
than to scatter it Congress to the winds.
But I have lived long enough to know that
human resentment is a very bad foundation
for a public policy ; and these gentlemen
will live long enough to learn m also. I shall
fight when and where I am commanded.
"But if 1 am compelled to fiht before 1 am
ready, they shall no, hold me responsible."
These gentlemen take the responsibility of
their acts, as 1 am willing to take that of
mine. But they mnt not throw their re
sponsibility on my shoolders "

denounce General Wise for his wanton de

"The Life of the Flesh is in the Blood,"
was said by inspiration long before Harvey's
discovery of its circulation bad brought to
light its purposes and uses. Now we know
not only that ' life is in the blood," but that
disease inhabits it also. Many of the dis
orders that pervade the human frame, have
their homes in it, thrive and grow in it
The celebrated Dr. J. C. Ayer, of Lowell,
has bad regard to this important fact in ma
king a remedy to cure these disorders. His
Extiact of Sarsaparilla purges out the impu
rities of the blood and induces a healthy ac
tion in it that expels disease. This looks
reasonable, and it is true, for we know by
our own experience. Seldom as we take
any medicine, we have nevertheless sever
al times been under obligation to the skill of
Dr. Aver for the relief which his remedies
never fail to afford os when we are obliged
to have recourse to them. Catholic, Halifax
Abusing Democrats.
- Many of our opponents still persist In the
abuse ot Democrats, wherever one word is
uttered disparagingly of the actions of the po
lineal branches of the Federal Government.
We will, for the benefit of all such in Col
umbia, copy the following from a western
journal now battling for -the Constitution
and the Union. It is as soundly Democratic
as anything uttered by Gen. Butler, and
might be perused with interest by the rea
ders of our Democratic papers:
While earnestly desiring peace, we rec
ognize the right and duty of the Govern
ment to enforce the laws, and defend itself
against assault. " ' r
We love the Union and we love the Con
stitution and the liberties it guarantees, and
hope they may both endure forever.
We love our country's flag and look with
contempt upon the men who would dishon
or it, whether that dishonor is accomplished
by firing upon it and compelling its surren
der as at Charleston ; or by draping it in
mourning and trailing it in the dust as was
done at La Sella, in Illinois, by men who
are now . loud mouthed supporters of the
war, in the defence of the Constitution
which they denounced, and the ilag which
they dishonored.
We are opposed to the violent denuncia
tions of the Supreme Judiciary of the coun
try, for doing their sworn duty, and regard
such denunciations as coming with partic
ular bad grace with those who claim to he
the particular friends of "the Union, the
Constitution and the enforcement of the
By "the enforcement of the laws," we
understand not merely the enforcement of
certain laws in certain portions ot our coun
try, but the execution and performance of
every law and every duty enjoined by the
Constitution hence, we are as much in la
vor of the execution of the fugitive slave
law in Boston and Chicago, as of the reve
nue laws in New Orleans and in Charleston
we do not believe that in order to save
the Union, it is necessary to destroy the
Constitution , or to deny to the citizens the
rights which that Constitution was designed
to secure to him hence we are opposed to
th'' illegal proceedings of irresponsible mil
nary officials, wtio u-e their little bnet au
thority, for the annoyance and oppression
01 tneir neighbors, as is otien done.
