XBERG, WEDNESDAY, Oct. 22i , 1862-
. As wa are drafted, and will bepbliged to
enter the army, the St r of the North, which
paper fought many a hard campaign battle,
will be discontiuued next week,during our
absence, a: least. Should we come back,
and we hope all may, we intend resuming
the publication of the paper, and would
moat respectively ask a continuance of the
patronage we have been receiving for tie
past four year. The Star may yet ipay you
many weekly -visits, and it is onr intention
that it thall. It is now nearly five years
since we embarked in the publication ol
this paper and during that time have seen
ome pre'ty tough as well aa good times
Upon the whole, we have succeeded better
with the paper than we expected, consid
ering it at the subscription and advertising
were very much reduced. Good bye, lor
nine months !
The Democracy have carried the Steles
of Ohio and Indiana. Tie number of Con
gressman elected from these States is quite
. an increased number over the old members.
There we in the neighborhood of 13 elected
in Ohio, Democratic, out of some 23. Iu
Indiana; we have gained in the same pro
portion. The complexion of the members
at present bid fair to com pose a Democrat
ic Congress. In this State we have fifteen
out of twenty-five at least.
The election ot Deuison over Grow, Mil
ler over Patterson, and Tracy over Clark,
are gai is in favor of the Democracy. The
two former are out and-out Democrats,
while the latter, Tracy, is a conservative
man, who formerly affiliated with the Re
publican party; but, on finding them be
coming too much abolilionized, cut loose
from them, and declared himself an inde
peudect candidate for Congress, receiving
support of all parties, and the result was
his election by about I8C0 majority in a
District that usually gives 2,000 Republican
majority. The Dauphin District is strongly
Republican, but was carried by the Demo
cralic candidate, Miller, which was more
than was expected, making the result doub
The result of the election in this county
was glorious. We have elected the whole
Democjatic ticket in this county by a large
ly increased majority. We have made a
clean sweep of all the offices. Never per
haps in the history of the country was such
strenuous efforts put forth to defeat the
Democratic tickei, as those resorted to by
the Abolitionists a few weeks previous to
the election, and never was a party more
sanguine of success. The returus from a
lew districts soon convinced them however,
that heir hopes were groundless so lar as
ibis county was concerned, but they still
clung with great tenacity to the hope that
the Democcratic majority would not be
large enough to defeat Clark in the District.
The returns, in a few dnyn after the elec
tion, soon reached us from alt the counties,
givin,j Tracy a handsome majority. The
defeat to Wilmot & Co. must be hard for
them to bear, especially at thi time.
. Montour has gone Democratic with an
increased vote. She gives the State ticket
471 raajority for Sleuker ; and 478 for Barr.
For Congress Tracy, independent candidate
has 376 majority. The Democratic ticket
was elected in this county. Edward young
was elected Sheriff withont any opposition.
Wm. C. Johnson was re-elected Register
A Jnst Rebuke.
The defeat of such Abolitionists as Ga
losh A. Grow, EJ. McPberson, James H.
Campbell, M. Russell Thayer. Blair and
Armstrong, for Congress in Pennsylvania,
and John A. Bingham ard Gorley ot Ohio,
wilt numerous others of the same stripe,is
the oest proof of the loyalty and pa'rioiism
of the American people. Those treason
able Abolitionists have received their re
ward. They have been driven from the
Halls of Congress by insulted and outraged
coaititoencie. In the privacy of their re
tirement, they will have long (y)ears to re
flect over the wrongs which they have in
Aided upon the industrial interests of the
nation- Their iusolence and fanaticism
weie cnbouuded, ani nothing but the
"crashing process," such as the people re
stoied to at the polls on Tuesday last, could
stoj) them in their mad career. They are
notr on the list of broken down politicians,
and we doubt very much if either of them,
will ever be elected to office again. Camp
bell has held his last office unless he chan
ger his residence. He can be, elected to no
office in Schuylkill county, and we would
adrisa him to remove at once to ome of
lbr New England States.
The "Star of the North" did nobly on
Tuesday last, rolling- up a majority fully
1630 for the State ticket, and over 1400 ma
jority for Tracy over Clark. This exceeds
all former triumphs in this coun'j, and fair
ly entitles her to the proud title of "Star of
ths North " As an illustration ot the deter
mination that animates the sons ot Colnm
ti we will instance thi ca-e of our old
friend Fe'.er Smeck, of Cattawisa,' who al
though over eighty six years of' age, and
supping here in Danville, with his daugh

All men who press onward with resistless
energy to the accomplishment of a noble
and beneficent object, most except depre
ciation of their efforts. It is (so to speak)
the dirt thrown up by their triumphant
chariot wheels, in their progress toward
the goal. Few, if any, great and good men
have been exempted from this penalty, im
posed by Envy and Prejudice upon success.
Aristides, Galileo. Columbus and even that
glorious exemplar of patriotism and virtue,
George Washington, were all assailed by
the foul mouthed pack that are ever ready
to yelp at the heels of greatness. We are
not surprised, therefore, that the most dis
tinguished reformer cl our times, the most
energetic philanthropists, Professor Thomas
Hollo wat, should maligned by the marti
nets of the profession, whose file leaders he
has eclipsed and mortified by the multitude
and magnitude of his cures. But their ma
lice affects not bim, and is equally impo
tent to impa:r the reputation of his reme
dies. The tco-ldjs on his side. His Pills and
Ointment are the medicines of millions, and
the shrill invectives of a few envious pro
fessionals are unheard or unheeded amidst
the approving houts of nations Figures
do not lie; and Professor Holloway's statis
tics of the cares wrought by his Ointment
and Pills in the United States authenti
cated as they are by leading citizens in ev
ery State of the Union demonstrate be
yond all dispute the superiority of the prep
arations over all the remedial agents pre
scribed by the faculty in "vulgar" practice.
In cases where the stamina of the patient
seems to have been utterly destroyed, the
recuperative and - restorative action of the
Pills is so wonderfull as almost to transcend
belief; and the rapidity with which the
Ointment heals the most formidable and
deeply seated sores is scarcely less marrel

Va., Oct. 1 1th 1862. i
Mr. W. H, Jacobt, Dear Sir: After our
long and tedious-march tothe Rapedan,the
dangerous return which was rendered con.
spicuous by sixteen days fighting and re
treating, and useless march from Alexan
dria to beyond Georgetown, and back again
our energetic and indefatigueable comman
der, Gen, Carroll, inspired by some unusu
al and philanthropic fpirits encamped us on
this beautiful and rommtic elevation, where
we have had time and opportunity to Test
our fatigued limbs, heal our lacerated feet,
and recruit health and vijjor in general. II 1
ever a body of men required repose it was'
that portion of the 84th, which, prompted
by their unflinching devotion to duty, per
formed all ihe service assigned them, re
garuless of the hardship, perils an.l priva
tions that they were continually doomed to
suffer. Discouraged too, by the cowardice
and voluntary neglect of many of their line
officers, who were seldom with their Com
panies w hen marching, and never in the
hour of danger ; and who apparently pos
sessed the sly cunning instinct of the Fox
to escape all places that appeared hazard
ous or venturesome, and practised ih de
ception which characterizes the Oppossum
to avoid being injured by gentry laying over
under lafse pretences. For the regiment
was not in a single engagement, whe;c
over one half of its officers were preset',
and participated in the fight. Many of there
having left days and even weeks before ihe
sulphurous smell of ignite ! gunpowder per-
j fumed the surrounding atmosphere, while
odiers became very weak in the knees, up
on hearing the cannon roar and the mus-
Loin I. . i i L- n j . V. ... I . i t" i i .'
of ba:tle, and desened the ranks to skulk
abonl in search ot a place of safety until
the battles wereought and the danger over
when they would return to reassume des
potic rule over the poor and despised pri
vate, who had fearlessly braved the storm,
and met the foe To the dereliction of du
ty and the want of courage and bravery
in these official poltroons may in a great
measure be attributed to the recenily em
barrassing and disgraceful condition of thu
84th. Because men who came into service
to do their doty in every respect boldly as
sert that if their officers who receive higli
salaries and claim great honors, refuse to
fight, they will not jeopardize their lives
for a mere pittance of 313 a month.
This acconnts for the laige number of
stragglers and the reduced condition of the
regiment in time oi battle. Resignations
have been handed in and accepted almost
ad libitum during the last few weeks, in con
sequence of the filling op, and consolidsi
tion of the companies, which has caused
some of our very best officers to abandon
the regiment- Thus while we rejoice ovar
the departure of the worthless trash, that
has disgraced the Regiment by their cov
ardice and injustice ; we deeply deplore the
absence of some of our most efficient offi
cers, whose brave conduct and strict atten
tion to doty endeared them to us, and made
them ornaments to the Army and Country.
Col Bowman who had been absent on
recroitigg duties for about a month, return
ed on last Friday and brought with him
about three hundred fine and brave looking
men. These give the old 8ih quite a mam
moth appearance. Some difficulty was
anticipated upon their arrival, with regard
to the distribution ot offices, bui everything
appears to have been arranged very satis
factorily to all , parties, and every one fels
proud of theincresed size of the Regiment
The energy and perseverance which Col.
Bowman has exhibited in his endeavors to
promote the interest and honor of our ill
fated regiment, and the success with which
Lis labors have been crowned, have inspir
ed his men with the utmost confidence, in
his ability o elevate it to as respectable a
position as that occupied by any regiment
in the field. And his cool, brave and un
embarrassed deportment in the hour of
danger,corroborates the fact, that he under
stands how to manage his men in battle,
and therefore they place reliance in hire
M. Opp, formerly Capt. of Co F. has
been promoted to Major of the 84th. He is
aa intelligent and well qualified officer, and
displayed more than ordinarv braver) in
the battles of Winchester atid Port Repub
lic. A more competent and worthier taan
could not have been selected lor the p h

ot the former is filled by Capt. Vaughn of
Co B. 106 Reg. P. V. who brought 40 men
wi:h him. The boys appear to like him
He wears a magnificent sword, as a le-li-mony
of respect from hi former Company.
Sergeant A G. Thornton, of your place, takes
the position ol the latter. He has been
connected with the company since its first
organization, has seen service, and behaved
himself with courage on the field of battle.
He will make a coble Lieutenant The old
members'of the Co. universally regret that
the ill health of Lieut. Ent, obligedhim to
resign his position. His vigilant attention
to duty at all times whether in camp or on
the field of battle has rendered bin pretence
almost indispensable. We hope be may
soon be restored to health again, to an joy
the laurels he nobly won during his short
but val iant military career. We are again
under marching orders and expect to em
bark into active service in a few days. The
weather is lecomirg rough and cold, and
the boys are lamenting for their old Sibley
tents. More anon.

Rebel Documents Captured It appears
that much of the succes which has attended
our arms in the South-Wea! of late was in
coneequerce of important information found
in rebel documents captured some weeks
since'by Gen. Buel. These papem were
letters of Beauregard acd Cooper, this Reb
el Adjutant-General, containg specific plans
for the capture of Lousville and Cincinnati.
These cities were to be taken, and held by
erecting strong works near by, thu river
and canal navigation wasio bedestroj ed,&c.
The returns from the interior of the State
come forward rather slowly, but such as we
are receiving indicate, beyond controversy,
the success of the Democratic State ticket,
and a gain in the : Democratic . members of
Congress elected, and also in the members
of theLegislature, that is-utterly confound
ing the Abolition radicals, and making
them a meek and quiet as lambs. The
Old Keystone is redeemed. Of the twenty
four members of Congress, at least fifteen,
and perhaps sixteen, Democrats are elected,
wbile in the State Legislature, there is a
Democratic majority of from eight to ten on
joint ballot, thus securing the "election of a
Democratic United Staled SenatoT next win
ter in place of Hon. David Wilmot This,
with Ihe large Democratic gains in the Con
gressmen from Ohio and Indiana and the
larger prospective gains in New York io
November, is not the feast the Abolitionists
bad anticipated j and they are realizing, in
the deepest and keenest chagrin, that some
thing else is '-marching on" besides the
sout of Old John Brown.
In the Fifth Congressional District the
majority for C. W. -Carrigan, Democrat, is
ascertained to exceed 200. In the Sixth
District, Montgomery county gives a major
it) for the Democratic State ticket of 1850
a gain of 220 on Foster's majority in 1860.
John-D. Stiles, Democrat, for Congress, has
1720 majority in Montgomery, and about
3500 majority in the District.
. fn the Fourteenth District. General Wm.
H. Miller, Democrat, is elected by 300 ma
jority over John J. Patterson, the present
Abolition member. It is also reported that
in the Seventeenth District Archibald Mc
Allister, Democrat, is -elected over Blair
In ihe Twelfth District, the majority for
Charles DeuNon, Democrat, over Galusha
A. Grow, Abolition, is about 1200.
The Democratic majority in the State will
be large not less than lea or fifteen thou
sand. Lycoming county gives Hale, Democrat
and Independent, for Congress, about 1200
Clearfield gives an old-fashioned majority
of a thousand.
Etie gives 1500 Bepublicaa1 majority.
THE WAR NEWS.
Trem the Papers Wednesday.
On account of the low condition of the
Potomao at so many points.and the fact that
the pickets of the army of the Potomao ex
tends from Cumberland to Washington, a
distance of 150 milea, the rebel cavalry had
no difficulty in passing into Pennsylvania.
The moment the fact that they had crossed
the river at McCoy's Ferry was known or
ders were sent to different commanders to
prevent their escape, but unfortunately a
large portion of the cavalry being absent on
important duty they were unable to be of
any service. Stuarts movements after cros
sing the river were very rapid, for having
taken fresh horses from the citizens of Penn
sylvania, he marched U2 miles in 24 hours,
lie marched from the time Gen. Pleasaoton
left his'camp until he came up with them at
the mouth of the Monacacy, Sunday morn
ing, 78 miles without change of Horses or
rest. The rebels were repulsed in the at
tempt to cross the river into Virginia, but
Stuart escaped over the river at White's ford
three miles further down. Gen. Pieasan
ton, in pursuing, lost the use of bis guns,
and his horses gave out from exhaustion.
Gen. Prentiss has arrived at Forlrass
Monroe with 500 Union prisoners from the
South. The Richmond papers of the 9th
inst. admit the death of Gen. Martin and
the loss of 5,000 killed and w. undeJ at Cor
inth. The St. Paul Pioneer states that dispatch
es has been received by Gen Pope from Gen
Sibley, announcing that the iudian war, as
tar the Sioux are concerned, is ended.
From the Papers of .Thursday.
There was skirmishing on Tuesday in
Kentucky, all aluog the line from Harrols
burg io Stanford. The rebels are now hur
rying out of the State. Bragg is moving,
outward, because he had heard of the defeat
of Gens. Price and Van Dorn at Perry ville
and Corinth, and consequently was unable
to procure reinforcements from that quarter.
Large numbers of the dead are yet lying un
buried at Porryville Acomvany of rebel,
which came under a flag of truce to the bat
tie-field, took a look at their dead and left
them without any attention. The guns ta
ken from as by the rebels have bean recover
ed unharmed, being spiked with telegragh
wire, which was easily removed. Paris has
bceu occupied by our troops.
From the Pspers of Friday.
There are indications of the advance of the
Army of the Potomac. Two strong recon
uois.itit.ces were made yesterday to ascertain
the enemy's strength aud position. Ooe di
visiou of cavalry and artillery, commanded
by Gen. Hanccck, advanced in the direction
ot Charle.-rown. No opposition was maui-fe.-tei
uat:l our army arrived near Charles
town, when the enemy made a decisive stand
in an advar.tageos position, and resisted for
three or four hours our advance, nutil our
artillery compelled them to retreat. The la
test report from this division is that it has
advanced beyond Chariestown toward Win
chester, and no enemy have been met with.
The second, voder command of Geo. Hum

umns. The Wabington Star of yesterday after
noon states that the rebel Gen. Stuart, with
force of between 2,500 and 3,000 cavalry,
reached Leesburg on Sunday last and halted
there until uear noon of Monday. In the
meantime a considerable force of rebel in
fantry and artillery approached within sup
portable distance of Stuart, in hope that an
attack would be made on Stuart by our army,
not being aware that he was supported. Stu
art, however, took good care to move to
Winchester before a considerable force from
the vicinity could gt up to him.
The rebel force commanded by Cols. An
derson, Johnson and Martin, and which rob
bed the steamer Hazel Dell on Wednesday,
is supposed to have numbered 2.000. Gro
ceries, clothing and powder were taken to
the value of $3,000, and tbey threaten to
burn all boats falling into their hands after
the first of November.
The Admiral and Philadelphia, two tran
sports, were burned at Columbus day befoie
yesterday supposed to have been the work of
an incendiary. The Admiral, while burn
ing, floated against the Philadelphia, from
whicha thousand kegs of powder were taken
before she was destroyed. Major Dodge
was slightly wounded by a fragment of a
shell. The loss is estimated at $75,000.
All the old rebel earthworks on the Poto
mao have been destroyed by our gun-boats.
While engaged in destroying the tortifioa
tions at Cockoit Point, the rahila. with fnn
field pieces, made their appearance, but a few J
snens, nowever. caused them to retrain from
any hostile movements. -

A dispatch from correspondents with "the
Army of the Potomao states that the double
reconnoissance made on Thursday and con
cluded yesterday, was a complete success.
The force under Geo. Humphreys, which
crossed at Shepherdstown. met the enemy's
advance beyond Kearnysville, whom they
repulsed after a spirited skirmish, in which
we had one killed and two wounded, and
the rebels two killed and several wounded.
The force then pushed on to Leetown, where
it encamped for tha rwo-hr. nnl afai-uit for

1.500 bushels of wheat in the possesiin of
Union men. and asoertainhd more fully the
position of the enemy. The rebels were dis
covered to be in force between Bunker Hill
and Winchester, their main boay on a line
parallel with Bunker Hill ond Berryville,
and their right flank on the Shenandoah.
Yesterday our pickets advanced three miles
from Charlestown, on the Berrvville road,
and sub-equently Capt. Reno, witn a small
cavalry force, made a reconnoissance to
within 5 miles of Bunkor Hill. There are
indications that a great bbttle is imminent

On Friday last a gang of about 150 guer

where they will be paroled. The rebels had
between 40 and 50 killed and wouaied on
Thursday night, io disputiug the advance of
Gen. Humphrey's troops. A dispatch from
Headquarters dated Saturdaj evening says
that 160 of the cavalry, including several

Pennsylvania, have been caytured on this

Gen. Prentiss says that the effect of the
