I AM DYING FAR HO 51 HOSE.

Notk The words I am dying far fiam
Home," were ti e last ottered by a yo ing
volunteer of the 19th Mass. Volonteei,who
died of Typhoid lever and wa buried near
Dames town, Md. The circumstance as
related to the author hence these lines
Beneath the hills the son was sinking
On a pleasant Autumn day,
And npon lhe tree top shining
Were the sun's last lingering ray.
As beneath a canva awning
Or. an humble couch there Uy,
One whose tide of lite was ebbing
From its tenament of clay. -
Racked was his mind and body sore,
Hot and burning wa his brain,
As he on his couch lay turning,
Fall of anguish and of pain.
But now there shot a gleam ol reason j
From his fever brilliant eye,
A to hi home his thoughts were taming
Ere he was about lo die.
- Once again he see his mother,
Feels her calm and magic touch;
Once again he sees hi brotter.
Grasps his hand in friendly clutch.
Spirit Sister round him hover,
Father with his mem so bold,
Fancy' vision waft around him,
Like a tale that's twice been told
Ah ! did'st not that thrilling spasm,
As it closed life's motal tone,
In low aud feeble accents whisper,
"I am dying tar from home ! '

but rather think it was some of our bitteries
practicing with their new guns.
Not having important new to con muni
cate, I will give you some incidents of our
late battle at Winchester.
Sergeant Goldsboro wa in the thichesl of
the fight, and as the colors fell the econd
time, be caught them up, and rusiingto
the front of the column, amid a h werof
lead, he shouted at the top of his voice.
'come on boys, rally arooncV.he cole rs, and
let u die ra her than retreat " With a
shoot that woold have done hoco - to a
many natives of the woods, they rushed
forward carrying everything before liem.
Louisiana Tigars, to the rescu ran
along the lines of the rebels, when they
were hard pressed by the Indiana Joys.
'To h 1 with the Louisiana Tigars. Hoos
iers go in," was the reply ; and thej did go
in, and drove back the hordes of Jackson
with terrible slaa2hter.
Sergnant Henry Funk of our company
the "Hurley Guards1' received a painful
wound in the thigh, and at the same time
a ball struck his gun, cutting the t ck and
ram rod off, thus spoiling the gun. Noth
ing daunted, he borrowed another aid with
the exclamation ' you d d rascal i here's
another gnn to break," he continued to ad
ranee and fire, nntil night put a sto to our
further progress, and saved tt e reb -l from
total annihilation, when he returned oramp
completely exhausted. He is notr ready
for another chance of obtaining sa: sfacMon
for the broken gun- Hope he may t ucceed.
We copy the following Irom the Cartridge

belonging io the 84th. appropriated Ihe gun

was killed m the c-cmme cement o'the ac
tion at Winchester, and fought bravely
until the enemy were repulsed. Teurs were
discovered trickling down the berxc lad'
cheeks, but he evinced no signs ol coward
ice. His raltant disposition is most as
suredly an index to a bright and glorious
future. His noble conduct has already
won him a position that men ol 6'erner
years would be proud of; and it i io dpubi
envied by the boasting cowards wto feared
to stand by his side in the deadlj couflict

shelter behind some straw stack or he trees

COUNTY, PA., WEDNESDAY APRIL 30, 1862.
Too mnch praise canr.ot be awarded lo
Capt. Frick and Lieut Ent, for their cool
ness, bravery and daring, Thile under the
most severe fire It seems a though the
fates favored them for their bravery, as both
had their clothes cut with rebel's ball
Their escape unhurt is a miracle. Long
may they continue to lead the " Hurley
Guards" to victory. The whole company,
with few exceptions, done nobly, and a
glorious welcome awaits them, should they
ever return to their homes, unless that idiot
Doctor should take it into hi head to blast
the fair fame they have won, fighting the
battles of the country, or as his precept
runs, freeing the negro.
I perceive by a lale number of that atuts
sheet the Republican of your pjace that
its editor doe not relish " Toodles' " letters,
and says that he shall tell his ''reader who
Toodles' is, and something of his antece
dents." Don't, Doctor, don't! I wa not
aware when I wro'e those communications,
that 1 was treading on the Q-iocjfc's toe, for
how could he expect me to know that he
had forned a coalition with Simon, ine
thief ? Sorry for you. doctor, you certainly
have shown the cloven foot, by ycur uncall
ed for attack upon me. Why bless your
poor ignorant soul q'iery, has he got a -ool?
I did not mean yoo, I only hit thieve anil
swindlers But Irom hi ravins one would
be led to think that he wa Simon himself;
or from hi sympathy with the negro that
there I a tain, bomtvher. But I suppose
ere this reaches you, that hi readers will
know w ho " Toodles ' is! What a discov

estly what the opinion cf the majority of ihe
Company is in resard to yourself : They
fay that jou are not only a blackguard but
a coward in every sene of the word, and I
must endorse their opinion- You certainly
cannot lay claims to decency, and a to bra
very your ow n action belie you, or you
would not wantonly assail a man who hn
lelt home and friends, all, all behind, and
taken up arms to assist in putting down
this rebellion, which wa caused by such
notorious aholitionWt a yourself. Ah, you
are very brave ! Thi i bravery : Silting
at home, far from the scenes of toil, hard
ship and dangers, that daily beset the sol
dier, you act bravely and show, your love
for the Union by your tirade again-t the
soldier that have laced the dead y cannon
mouth tf a have t;ken their lives in their
own hand that have dared to bare their
brea-t and welcome the death blow, so that
it but secured thi great Union. What con
solation ha tte soldier, alter making all
the sacrifice in hi- power, even to that of
offering up hi life for hi country, if she in
turn stabs him in the back 1 Shame ! doctor,
There appears to be a conviction settling
upon the mind of the soldier that thi war
i n"t a much lor the perpema ion of the
Union it i to free the negro; and 1 firmly
be'ieve that thi was the idea of ail the
leading Black hearted Republican Abolit on
leader. And time will show that the.-e
surmises are correct vide lat Congre-
It is w;el! known that this i the itipptr love
John i creed, the Chicago Platform his bible.
Simon Cameron hi God, and Snmne', Wil
son. Stevens, Greeley k. Co are the pnji'i.
What cares thi insignificant idiot, whether
the Union is divided or not only so that the
slave is freed.
I hve not been the only one that he ha
seen fit to vent his spleen upon ; no, far
from it, even Geokgk B. McClellav, the
secoi d Washington of America, i not free
Irom his blistered tongue. He attempts to
lob him of the laurels he has won and sac
rilegiously place them upon a man's head
who is na more fit to wear them than a
donkey is to appear upon a ball-room floor.
But I will drop the subject, Jor ihii time, by
saying that, I sought no controversy with
the editor of the Republican, I did not even
-make an attack upon him or his correspon
dent. They have opened the ball, fired
the first shot, and Lhave and shall respond,
! God defend the right. As lar as his army
j correpondent in thi Company i yoncern
! ed, I can prove him to be ns great a coward
I as the doctor himself. If the self conceited
and bombastic elaied defender of Came on
ihinks that I am done with that prince ol
swindlers he i much mistaken, for I iutet'd
to follow him up and expect ere long to lm
able to lay before your renders some as
tounding intelligence of his movement in
Rnssia. I know not why the doctor defend
him so valiantly, unless he think to gain
the favor of the ohl sinner, and secure for
tsimselt a j osi'ion a Private Secretary ; or,
perhaps he i taking lesson under him
Well, the old scoundrel will fi d in the doc

Abe ! Abe I ! has reason entirsly ; deserted

responsible a post, knowing his thieving
propensities and his secession and Aboli
tion proclivifes ? But what more can we
expect from this same party 1 Not satisfied
w'fh producing this war, ihey rob in every
way, shape, form and manner imaginable,
and now have the country upon the brink
ol ruin, both physically and financially, and
all for what? Why, that this Abolition j their share ;ri ,nat terr.ble fight. Let the

archical and tyrannical Government. This
is what they are striving after for this they
have been schemina and planning lor the
last twenty years, and they now g'oat over
tbe prospects of the consummation of their
hellish designs. Thi may seem harsh lan
guaee, but it is truth, and I hurl it into the
teeth of the black Abolitionist and dare
them to deny it with truth.
But, a day of reconing is coming; the hor

Perhaps the docior and his friends think
that I am piling it on rasher steep but I can
assure them that I do not wih to exaggerate
nor to throw blame where it should not at
tich The people are disappointed, dis-
J hear'ened, and diguied. They see their
government bankrupt ; the see, too, that
the Abolitionists are making no effort tow

and they fee, loo, that until the slave are .

I hey would rather see ihe glorious fabric !
of our liberties a heap of smouldering ruin
ar.d the slaves free, than to have ihe sacred
Unioc once more united, and peace and
harmony retg' ing supreme throughout this
land, and the southern people still holding
property, to which the Constitution and the
Laws give them a perfect right. Why

There i not really half the gallantry of

take a smack from her roby lips, and
hardly looks red in the face then he sirug
gled for ihe sm.ck, and never drew a long
breath for half an hour after, then he kneel
ed gracefu ly to tie up her shoe string, row
she puts her fool ir.to his lap, and he ties
the string wiih a cape and releases the

Tbe PennsyiTQnians at Pilhbnrg Landing.,
Gov. C us tin is responsible for the- an
nouncement that no Pennsylvania soUliers
participated in the slorious victon- gained j y
over the enemies ol the Union at Pittsburg
Landing. The Governor must either have
6upposed that he was stating fact, or else
wa perfectly indifferent io awarding honor
m the brave soldiers of his own Siata for
lne public, that a Peuny Ivania Regiment
did participate in that bat1!, and to o:her
States Kentucky and Ohio are we indebt
ed for the firi account of the heroic conduct
of the gailant Pennsyl vanians on that bloody
battle field. Two weeks ago the Governor
should have made known this glorious
news, through a General Order, congratula
ting the 77th. Pennsy lvania Volunteers, tor
their gallantry at ihe battle of Pittsburg
Landing Nothing of the kind ha been
done, or will it likely take place unless our
prompting ittould bri;ig it out. These Re
publican Administrations have a queer way
of dealing wiih the soldiers It is noi
enough Uiat they cover their back with
-ho.l.ly, issue them aiity and ur.wliule

or four months at a lime while their fami
lies are in want all these wrongs it seem?
are not sufficient but the poor boon ot an
acknowledgement of their share in achiev
ing a glorious victory must too be withheld.
