CLEARFIELD, PA., AUO. 7, 1861.
The returning home of the three months
men, is a matter of some conjecture among
the peop!. They cannot see the propriety of
permitting the withdrawal of th!s efficient
corps, at this time ; thereby endangering the
safety of the capital. But when the cause and
effect of this f reedom of the volunteers for
the defence of the Union are considered, the
sacrifice, temporarily, of so many efficient sol
diers, will not be considered of doubtful pro
priety. They volunteered to protect the Union
II was a Ireo offering for a noble cause : not
one man in the whole loyal army having been
forced to take up arms, nor would his life
been imperiled had he refused lo fight for his
country. On the other hand, if Jeff. Davis or
Beauregard had charge of these three months
men, the probability is, that not one of them
would have been permitted to go Dome in
such an emergency ; at least, if they had oth
er soldiers under their command who were a
Lie and willing to force them to stay.
What more striking contrast could be pre
sented what one that would tell more favora
bly for the Union, than this between the free
dom of the Northern soldier and the enslave
ment of the Southern 7 In the South we see
men everywhere, not only drafted, but impres
sed. In many sections the men think it as
much as their life is worth to refuse to en
list ; and therefore, join the army rather than
be shot at home. Many persons begin to sigh
when tbey consider bow the iron hands of the
usurpers and despots nt Richmond soize and
hold all the able-bodied men. ' With an infat
uated mob to back him, Jeff. Davis can, even
now,di?pose of the lives of all Southern men as
easily as a Turkish Sultan ; indeed, to all in
tents and purposes, he is a veritable dictator.
A people who have enjoyed the highest form
of government, and once become as debased
as these slave-drivers have, they can no longer
appreciate freedom. They Ioso all love for it
and begin to feel their unfituess for liberty,
and raise the clamor for a King to reign and
to rule over them. They seem to expect only
as much freedom, or rather license, as they
can obtain by craft and violence. Tbey all ap
pear to understand this well; and, therefore
each is trying to outstrip the others in their
efforts to excite the mob, and by a systematic
oppression of their fellow men hope to sc
complish their own 6elfish aspirations.
If these desizninz knaves at the head of
their oppressed and deluded followers should
in the end, succeed in conquering the Union
soldiers who have offered their lives a volun
untarv sacrifice upon their country's altar
then may the world be surprised, and the op
pressed tremble for the fate of all constitu
tional freedom in tho future.
Missouri State Convention. Tho State
Convention which assembled at Jefferson City
several weeks since, by a vote of 56 to 23, on
tho 30th of July declared vacant the offices o
Governor. Lieut-Governor, and Secretary of
State. The Convention, on the following day
appointed Judge Gamble of St. Louis, I'rovi
sional Governor; W. P. Hall, Lieut-Govcr
nor, and Mr. Mordecai, Secretary of State.who
were duly sworn in. After declaring the seats
of the members of the legislature vacant, and
transacting somo other business, the Conven
tion adjoured until tho 3d Monday of Decern
bcr. unless sooner called together. Success
to the new government.
Inhumanity. The refusal of the Rebel ar
niv to receive our flag of truce to look after
tho dead and wousded is almost without a par
allel. The battle-field could bo approached
and examined without oar. obtaining any
knowledge of their batteries or other military
operations. But the privilege was denied
and those who attempted to recover a singles
body have been arrested and held as prison
ers. The orders of prohibition have no doubt
come from Jeff. Davis, who was on the field
on the day of "battle ; and though our officers
will not retaliate, our men can never forget
this' unprecedented exhibition of inhumanity.
Col.Tiiomas A. Scott. The recent appoint
ment of the efficient vice-president of the
Penn'a Railroad company, as Assistant Secre
tary of War, was a very judicious one. Few
men in our country possess greater business
qualifications, and since the commencement
of hostilities he has devoted all bis energies
to the superintendence of the railroad arrange
ments connoctcd with the transportation of
tbs aimy, and has rendered the nation service
of the utmost importance.
Politics in Ohio. The Republicans in Ohio
have called tbeir State Convention, and in
place of a strict party Convention they have
taken advantage of the discontent that exists
at the terms of the Democratic call, and invi
ted a Convention of all loyal citizens who sup
port the administration in its present war poli
cy. The Democratic Convention meets early
in August ; the other will assemble soon after,
and of course nominate the successful ticket.
Fire. The Duquesne depot of the Penn'a
Railroad, and somo adjoining property, was
destroyed by fire in Pittsburgh on Tuesday
nreck. Loss, about $150,000.
Gopowder for THE Rebels. The Confed
erate government has been informed says the
Charleston Mercury, that the Governor of
Louisiana had taken possession of two hun
dred tons of sulphur in his State, for the pur
pose of making gunpowder for the army, it
belonged to private individuals, and was ob
tained by them for the purpose of being used
m refining or manufacturing sugar. It is saia
the sugar planters or refiners will suffer consid
erable inconvenience in consequence of this
seizure, but Governor Moore deemed the ne
cessities of the State and Confederate &iaies
of more importance than the convenience of
individuals. This sulphur is surncieni to
make fifteen hundred tons ot gunpowder.
Sulphur is an article of importance, and con
traband of war. It cannot be obtained in this
country, except by making it from the sul
pburets of iron, copper or other minerals, or
from the sulpnur springs., ine process wouiu
be exceedingly tedious, laborious and expen
sive, for making sulphur from these substan
ces, or from suipnur water, mere is not so
much difficulty in obtaining saltpctra, lor
there are caves of nitrous earth in most of the
Confederate States. So that if we have sul
phur enough there need be no fear of an a-
bundant supply of gunpowder for the most ex
tensive or prolonged war.
A Secession Dagger. A member of the
N. Y. 9th brought with him a weapon which he
captured in Secessia, and which would do to
put in some museum of curiosities along with
the war tools of Isew Zealand savages, or the
poisoned stilletoes of Italian or Spanish bravos.
It was a dagger made by pointing a piece of a
saw, and grinding down the back to a razor
like sharpness. It was so made that, in enter
ing the flesh, tho teeth of the saw would act as
barbs, and cause a horrible wound m withdraw
ing the instrument of butchery. It is about
eighteen inches in length, and finished with a
buck horn handle. Such an instrument of
torture would delight the amiable ex-Governor
Wise, who recommended the v irginians to
convert their old hoops into dirks, and to grind
down their wagon tires into Bowie knives to
chop up northerners. We do not know, how
ever, whether the weopoa we have described
is not perfectly proper, and in keeping with
the character of the cause in which it was em
ployed. Men fighting to extend the era of
barbarism may reasonably be expected to use
barbarous weapons.
J enferson Davis in 1858. In the summer
1858 Jefferson Davis in a speech at Faneuil
Hall, Boston, uttered the following language :
"Among culprits, there is none more odious
to my mind than a public officer who takes
an oath to support the Constitution the com
pact between the States binding each other
for the common defence and general welfare
of the other yet retains to himself a mental
reservation that ho will war upon the princi
ples he has sworn to maintain, and upon the
property rights, the protection of which are
part of the compact of the Union. Applause.
it is a crime too low to be named before this
assembly. It is one which no man with self-
respect would ever commit. To swear that
be will support the Constitution to take an
office which belongs in many of its relations
to all the States, and to use it as a means of
injuring a portion ot the States of which he
is thus the representative, is treason to every
thing honorable in man. It is the base and
cowardly attack ot him who gains the confi
dence of another, in order that he may wound
. The CottoS Supply is England. We learn
by a late number of the New York Economist
that the stock of cotton in Liverpool at last
accounts was 1,120.000 bates, with 160,000
bales in transitu, so that, it remarks, "if the
blockade were raised in February next we are
informed that no national inconvenience would
be felt." This is an important fact, and must
needs have considerable bearing upon matters
in this country as connected with the Cotton
States. Whether the Government is disposed
to make the best nse of the margin thus ac
corded to it will only be known by the renewed
efforts it may make within the next few weeks
to make quick work with the war. The fact is
apparent, however, that the Cotton States can
not suddenly "move tho lever that moves the
world," with England so well preparod to sup
ply her mills, and as only seven per cent, of
her people are engaged in the manufacture of
cotton, it is quite questionable whether she
would not do better to help them past a single
soason rather than enter on a war with this
country in an attempt to break tho blockade.
Rebels in Government Service. The reve
lations which aro being made before Mr. Pot
ter's special committee on the departments
aro somewhat startling. Thus farjhe has evi
dence that secessionists still continue to be
employed in most every department under
government. Some of the secretaries have
discharged clerks against whom not a sus
picion of disloyalty was ever entertained, and
retained those who have openly boasted in the
public offices this week that they rejoiced at
the defeat of the federal troops in the late bat
tle. These statistics will be published soon.
It is also in evidence before the committee
that the majority of employees in the arsenal
hero are secessionists. Nine workmen were
arrested at the Washington arsenal, on a charge
of being secessionists. The evidence against
them was laid before the special committee.
It would be well for an investigation to bo
made as to tbeir work among bomb shells, etc.
America at the Next World's Fair. A
resolution has passed tho Senate and Uousu of
Representatives, appropriating $2,000 in order
that the President may adopt measures to in
sure a representation of the United States at
the next World's Fair, to bo held in London
in 1862. A representative should be appointed
as soon as possible; in order that he may make
arrangements for the space required by Ameri
can exhibitors. Ws do not expect that there
will bo many exhibitors from 'our country, but
those who do go should be provided with good
positions and the means to make a display
creditable to our people. The building for
the World's Fair is now in the course of erec
tion, and it is going up with rapidity and sys
tem which wero observed in the first Crystal
Palace. It is expected that the exhibition will
surpass all that has preceded it in the character
of tho mechanism and articles entered for
A Long Line or Pickets. It is announced
that Gen. McClellan has determined to extend
the pickets all the way from the entrench
ments opposite Washington to Harper's Ferry,
a distance of over eighty miles. It is only by
this means that communication between the
secessionists in Maryland and the rebels in
Virginia can be entirely cut off. Heretofore,
everything transpiring in Washington has been
immediately communicated to the rebel
leaders ; but a different course will be pursued
now, which will make the conveyance of in
telligence exceedingly difficult and dangerous,
and spies will have to incur greater risks to
accomplish their work. ' -
Havelocks. The name of the gallant Indi
an General is almost universally applied to
the sunshades of our troops. Anybody who
will study Egyptian paintings will see that
shades of the same cut were used in the same
way by the Egyptian troops before Moses'
time. The army which was lost in the Red
Sa wore Havelocks.
July 30. Gen. M'Clellan, it is sairt, has ex
pressed tho opinion that this will he an artil
lery war, and asks as many batteries as it is
possible to procure. Regiments have been
sent by him to extend the line of pickets a
long the Potomac to Harpers Ferry. There
are fresh indications of a more vigorous poli
cy, aud Gen. M'Clellan inspires and supervi
ses everything.
Strict movements are now on foot to re
move all the secession clerks from the de
partments. This should have been done long
July 31. The whole army embraced in the
command of Major General Banks save three,
companies ot the Massachusetts Second, is
lying on the Maryland side or the .Potomac,
which is by far a more healthful region than
Harper's Ferry. The column is now being
rapidly reinforced by way of Ilagerstown and
Baltimore, so that the three months' regi
ments that have left are scarcely missed.
Gen. Banks has his headquarters at a farm
house about two miles below the Ferry. His
disposition of the troops and general manage
ment of the arm' has so far given general sat
isfaction both to the officers and men. The
batteries planted here are so stationed as to
command all the crossings ot the Potomac for
miles above and below this point. Gen. Banks
and staff are busily occupied in forming the
army into brigades. Their position was cho
sen with a great deal ot engineering skill, by
Captains Newton and Simpson. It commands
Harper's Ferry, and is easily made almost im
pregnable. Our batteries are in position.
August 1. Last evening while the fifth
New York regiment was passing through Bal
timore, and when at the corner of Enson
street, a party of Irish secessionists began
chreering for Jet! Davis. Tho cheering was
accompanied by a shower of stones that fell a
mong the ranks of the volunteers. The latter
not forgetting the murderous riot of the 19th
of April, supposed that a repction of that
bloody day was to be enacted. The soldiers
acting from that impulse, immediately fixed
their bayonets and charged upon the men who
lined the sidewalks. Seveial shots were also
fired, but we could here of no one being injur
ed. During the riot a man named Win. El
liot, one named Flaherty, and one other whose
name wc could not learn, were arrested by
the regiment aud marched to the depot the
soldiers declaring that they intended to take
them to New York as prisoners of war. We
afterwards learned that the rioters were re
leased from custody, upon their taking the
oath of allegiance to the United States.
While the riot was in progress, squads of sol
diers chased the rioters in all directions at
the point of the bayonet. We heard of sever
al persons being injured in this manner, but
wero unable to trace up the correctness of the
The Conservative has advices from the Osage
Indian region, Kansas, that Mr. Shoemaker,
the chief missionary of that tribe, has been
compelled to leave by the secessionist. A
force of one hundred men uuder J udgc Brown,
of Humbolt, has left Allen county for the O
suge country, to disperse the rebels. The
Times says a large body of Pawnees and Chey
enncs are in the vicinity of Marysville, Mar
shal county, Kansas, and it is thought they
will inaugurate hostilities, having been tam
pered with by the secessionists in that region.
After the recent skirmish at Harnsville, Mo.,
and the dispersal of the rebel forces, Jennison
and his men robbed some stores of clothing,
&c., which he distributed among the troops.
Jennison is not in the United States service,
but ic this skirmish acted in concert with the
Federal troops.
The surveying schooner Vixen, arrived
from the capes of Virginia, reports eleven
vessels ashore betnreen Oapo lienry and a
point ten miles south. Five of them wero
ships, and all of them more or less stripped of
their rigging. Ihey appear to have gone on
recently, and can only be attributed to devas
tating piratical cruisers.
August 2. Tho execution of private Wm.
Murry, of Company F. Second New Hampshire
regiment, for the murder of Mary Butler, on
Saturday last, took place at 4 o'clock this af
ternoon. Iu order that his fate might be a
warning to all evil disposed soldiers, the scat
fold was erected upon the walls of Fort Ells
worth, affording an unobstructed view to all
The regiments encamped in tho vicinity of
Alexandria were present, and notwithstanding
20,000 persons witnessed the execution, every
thing passed otf without nnneccessary excite
ment. The culprit ascended the scaffold with
a steady gait. He made no allusion to his
guilt, but called on his friends to sustain his
fumily in this their hour of trial.
Hundreds of people are coming into Mis
souri almost daily, who have been driven out
of Texas and Arkansas by the rebels. Thuy
represent that if the United States Govern
ment would send a force and arms to the peo
pie, more than one-half in both States would
fight for the Union. The strength of the Mis
souri rebels south of us is stated to bo about
7,000, including 2,500 Arkansas troops.
There are nearly 300 slaves doing military
duty in one of Ben McCulloch's regiments'.
Information has been received from Lieut.
Crosby's expedition to the eastern shores of
Virginia, which left Old Point three days ago.
The Pocomoke and two small rivers were ex
plored for a number of miles. Seveial parties
of armed rebels were dispersed. One schoon
er was burned and another has been brought on
as a prize.
An educated German private, belonging to
tho New York regiment, was arrested yester
day for correspondence with the enemy. A
letter to General Lee was found on his person.
Ambition for advancement is supposed to
have been his principal motive. His letter
contained no revelations of importance con
cerning the fortress.
August 3. The following is an extract
from a letter dated July 23th aboard the U
nited sloop of war Savannah, off capo Hatteras :
"We made a sail to windward. It was blow
ing a gale and tho sea was running high. Wc
gave chase for three or four hours, when appa
rently to avoid being captured, she ran over the
shoals and went high and dry ou the beach.
The sea running high mane a complete breach
over. She was a full rigged brig of about 200
tons. Her conduct was most singular through
out the chase. She was out of gun range or
she might have got a ten inch shell into her.
She showed no colors, which is still moie
strange. We- attempted to get near enough
to ascertain bcr true character, but a danger
ous bar kept us away. The country around is
uninhabitable?. Tho sand bank is 15 miles
north of Hatteras, and so rough that it is im
possible to land. We think she may be the
privateer "Jeff Davf," or some vessel captur
ed by her making for some Inlet on the coast
of North Carolina. .
' The brig L. C. Watts arrived from Peram
buco this morning, having successfully run a
guantlet of pirates. She reports that when off
Bermuda on the 25th she was informed by the
schooner John Elliot that that vessel had been
chased by a privateer brig. Tho brig L. C.
Watts was chased by a bark on the 2Gth nit.,
again by a brig on the 27th, and a third time
by a schooner on the 28th, but she outsailed
them. ' She brought as passengers Capt. Gib
blo, and tho crew of tho brig Caroline, of Bos
ton, which struck a sunken rock off Cape St.
Rogue on Jane 2nd and was condemned at
Rio Grande. The Caroline was insured in
Boston. : .
t that Port Fillmorft. Texas, has
been reinforced with ten companies; also
that Cel. Couly has fitted out such expeditions
against Fort Bliss, now held by tho Texans,
as makes its capturo certain.
