Tbk Weather has been exceedingly warm
in this section during the past week. We
have had several fine showers, bowever,which
-had the effect of lowering the temperature a
little, and of refreshing the growing crops.
Hoaxed. Several weeks since, we publish
ed the marriage notice of Abel II. Farwell to
.Miss Mary . llammond. It appears that we
were the subject of a "sell," no such marriage
having taken place. Further, we have been
informed that the young roan whose name
appears in the notice, has no knowledge of a
lady by the name of Mary E. Hammond. The
I person who can stoop to such a mean and das
tardly trick, deserves the contempt of all hon
est men; and should it be our good fortune
to ascertain his name, we will give him the
benefit of a notice, that he will remember as
: long as he lives.
. Tus "Army Worm." Much excitement has
prevailed in our town and neighborhood, du
ring the past weckf on account of the appear
ance of countless numbers of black worms,
which are doing much damage to the oats and
corn crops. In some instancas, they have cut
all the blades and heads off the growing oats,
leaving nothing but the stalk. The larger
worms are about one inch in length, are black,
and have a brown head. Many persons are of
the opinion that it is the 'army worm ;" but,
we believe it to lie the black cut worm, as it
-exists only in great numbers in fields, where
the sod had been plowed down. Be this as it
,may, one.thing is certain, that they are doing
much damage to the growing crops.

- . Camp Ccetin, Aug. 5, 1861.
Fbiexd Row: No doubt you thought 1 had
neglected my promise, to write weekly. Want
of time is my excuse. On tho morning of
the 27th, whilst eating breakfast at Western
port, orders came to draw ono days rations,
pack things, and by noon to be ready to march
for Harper's Ferry. Soon all was bustle, and
each man began to pack his knapsack and
fill his haversaek. At noon wo crossed to
Piedmont on the Virginia side, and with the
other companies of the 5th, soon "piled in"
the can. Before. starling we gave three cheers
lor the Union ami the ladies of Piedmont ;
and the whole- regiment joined in six cheers
for our ring and the ladies of Clearfield ; and
1 can assure you that our flag will never be ta
ken by the enemy without a fight for it. We
rode in open cars, which are greatly preferred
by the soldiers. On reaching New Creek, we
found that Col. Biddle's regiment had started
a short time previous, and that his camp was
occupied by a regiment of Ohio boys and a
Battery of Regular horse Artillery. Here I
saw the 3rst lurnace for heating shot, and
other things peculiar to the artillery service,
with which 1 am not acquainted.
Alter a short stop, we started and crossed
New Creek, then the "Burnt bridge," now
rebuilt, and towards evening arrived at Cum
berland ; where, after some delay, we were
marched to the commons, stacked arms, cooked
supper, and took quarters lor the night. The
valley from the "Burnt bridge" to Cumber
land is leautifiil, soil good, crops heavy, and
fields large. One cornfield contains about 100
acres. The work is principally done by ne
groes, I presume slave?, who look fine and
heart' and display a large amount ot ivory,
which they seem to show with delight. As
the train passed alor.g we cheered (and I can
assure you we are a rather noisy set) and were
greeted by the waving of handkerchief's and
and hats, on both the Maryland and Virginia
side of the river. I found Cumberland a town
about the size of Ilarrisbnrg, the principle
streets paved with cobble stones, and quite
city-like in appearance.
At daybreak all were astir; and not having
room in our bagg.-ige wagon for the knapsacKs
we had to carry them. The morning was sultry
and after marching some 2 miles it commenced
to rain but did not cool the air much. We did
not stop until we reached "Mason and Dixon,"
our old camp, where we refreshed ourselves
with a drink out of the cool spring. Here we
remained for the day having traveled about
7 miles, and glad were we, for it soon rained
hard. The next day we marched 18 miles,
stoppingforthe night 5milessouth of Bedford.
On the morning of the third day at 5 o'
clock, no started for Bedford Spiings. On
arriving at the Springs, we were marched a
round the large circular walk, faced in, ground
arms, and broke ranks for half an hour. On
leaving, we saw standing at the gate a vener
able looking man, who, we were told, bcctip
ed tho White House previous to the advent of
Uncle Abe." We passed through Bedford
with mnsic, and colors flying ; the fair ones
greeting us on all sides. Half a mile north of
Bloody Run we stopped three hours to eat our
dinners, at one of the largest springs I ever
saw, and the best water I ever drank. The
stream is large enough to supply a good sized
town. Wo left this spring at 4 o'clock, and
traveled within 5 miles of Hopewell, having
made a march of 20 miles. Here we found
Mr. M'Plierson and J. McGaughey. The fol
lowing morning we soon made the 5 miles to
Hopewell wheie wo took tho cars for this
At Huntingdon we stopped half an hour to
bo "fed ;" and I am satisfied that I could not
do the ladies justice for their kindness, if I
were to write a week, and exhaust Webster's

praise most, their beauty or their benevolence.
This much I will say, however, that we were
"led" abundantly; and I can assure you,
that the capacity of a hungry regiment is not

A Fema le Srv. The First Jventucky' Reg
iment, which is now on duty in Western Vir
ginia, arrested a female spy last week. She
says sho is from Georgia. She came to Cin
cinnati aud enlisted in the First Kentucky
Regiment, thinking she would get in General
McCIellan'8 army. She was caught writing
letters containing our army movements for
the enemy. She endured all the hardships of
camp lifo as bravely as any of the "boys,"
making at one time a forced march over a
rough, hilly country of CO miles with only
two scant meals. She refused to give her
Re-ejjlistmcnt for the War. A well
known gentleman who lias just returned from
an extended tour through New-England and
New-York says that not far from two-thirds
of the returned three-months militia will re
enlist for the war. The people have, in his
judgment, not only recovered from the de
pression caused by the disaster at Bull Run,
but are more ready than ever to respond to the
call of tho country, and to give money and
blood to its service.
The Federal Troops in Western Virginia
are occasionally compelled to eat paste instead
of bread. This is owing to the carelessness of
the Commissary, who neglects to supply his
department with bread, and then issues Hour
to the troops, who, having no means of baking
bread or biscuits, are forced to mix their flour
with water and eat paste or starve. Excellent
care and attention for men who are fighting
the battles of the Union.
Lost his Bacon. Hon. S. B. Clay, son of
nenry Clay, while endeavoring to smuggle
several wagon loads of bacon to West Tennes
see, for the use of the rebels in that quarter,
was intercepted by a company of Union troops,
who not only seized the merchandise as con
traband, but obliged Mr. Clay and his wagoner
to take the oath of allegiance to the National
Toe New Gun Boats. The new gun boats
being constructed by the Government, are to
be armed with heavy steel guns, the Navy De
partment having given an order for a number
to be manufactured after the pattern of those
made for the Sickles' Brigade, and which gave
such satisfaction at the tests lately made at
the Navy Yard, under the direction of Captain
"Brethren, let cs Drill."-When the news
of the repulse at Manassas reached Camp
Meeting at Desplaines, III., Rev. Henry Cox,
the large hearted pastor of Wabash Avenue
M. E. Church who was preaching at the time
intelligence was received remarked, on clo
sing hi sermon, "Brethren, we had better ad
journ this camp meeting and go home and
drill." . . .
Another Feat. The Clcaveland Plaindealer
says: "It was thought no possible feat of
physical endurance could equal that night
march to Phillippa.' ... We still think it unsur
passed. Col. Tyler thinks wbat man ba done
man can do.' He adds five miles to the march,
but has no rain. When it was found that there
was $30,000 in gold, in Weston, likely to be
taken by Wise, Gen. McClellan started for
Clarksburg, twenty-three miles from Weston,
to send Col. Tyler and his regiment to get the
money. , Tyler never sleeps, and seems full of
the idea that his office is to be do sinecure.
Ho anticipated tho order, and parading his
men on a highland near the depot at which
McClellan was to arrive, he told him to keep
an eye on him when the train arrived, and if,
the word from McClellan was march, he would
wave his handkerchief, and they could show
Clarkbburg their heels. The train arrived, und
Gen. McClellan rushed up to Col. Tyler as he
sat -n his horse, and asked, 'Col. Tyler, how
soon can you march for Weston V I'll show
you soon if you will look yonder,' and waving
his handkerchief, the whole regiment struck a
double quick and disappeared like the hosts
of Roderick Dim. Major Casement started
with two horses, but in a few hours was tug
ging -away on foot, both his horses loaded with
soldiers whose physical strength had given out,
and when they entered Weston, both 'Jack'
and his horses were loaded with muskets so as
to favor poor exhausted soldiers. We are
ready to go our pile on the gallant Seventh
"T7ie Life of the Flak is in the Blood," was
said by inspiration long beiore Harvey's dis
covery of its circulation had brought to light
its purposes and uses. Now we know not on
ly that "life is in the blood," but that disease
inhabits it also. Many ot the disorders that
pervade the human frame, have their home in
it, thrive and grow ia it. The celebrated Dr.
J. C. Ayer, of Lowell, lias had regard to this
important fact in making a Remedy to cure
these disorders. His Extract of Sarsaparilla
purges out the impurities of the blood and
induces a healthy action in it that expels dis
ease. This looks reasonable, and it is true,
for we know by our own experience. Seldom
as we take any medicine, we have neverthe
less several times been under obligations to
the skill of Dr. Ayer for the relief which his
remedies never fail to afford us when we are
obliged to have recourse to them. Catho
lic, Halifax, N. S.
Animals. The Richmond Examiner pays
this compliment to tho foreign born citizens
of this country, many pf whom at the South
are fighting the Examiner's battles s "These
emigrants (lrih, Scotch, German, &c,) do
not, like our ancesotrs. fly from religious and
political persecution. . They come merely as
animals in search of a richer and fresher pas
ture. They come to gratify physical want
for moral, intellectual and religious wants
they have not acquired. They will settle in
largo masses, and for ages to come, will prac
tice an impure materialism. The mass of
them are sensual, groveling, low minded a
gririans, and nine-tenths, of them would
join the Mormons or some such brutal level
ing sect, if the opportunity offered to do so."
Population of Ireland. The Freeman's
Journal publishes the returns of the Irish cen
sus for the year 1861. From the returns it
appears tint the population of Ireland on the
8th of April last, the day on which the census
was taken, was 5,701.543, which shows an abso
lute decrease ot population, compared with
the census of 1851, of 787,342, or about 12 per
cent. Compared with 1811, the decrease Is
2,-110,531, or 30 per cent. In the religious
tables, which are now published for the first
time, it appears that on the 18th of April the
Catholic population was 4,500,000, while other
persuasions number l,273,9t0.
It is established that f he Secessionists had
91,000 men within their lines at Bull Run on
the morning of the battle and that Jeff. Davis
in person brought up 17,000 more from Rich
mond, who reached them about noon. They
had therefore fully three times as many as
Gen. McDowell, and lour times as many as
were brought into action on our side. On the
other hand, it must be admitted that the pre
ponderance in spectators on our side was very
Col. Lander's Command. Col. Lander will
bo authorized to organize and summon hero
the men of the mountains and of the plains,
with whom he was associated and became very
popular when engaged in opening overland
mail routes to the pacific. Their skill with
the rifle and in woodcraft will be turned
against the sneaking chivalry that infest our
armies wherever they advance, and findyg!ory
in murdering solitary pichets.
Perfecting the Blockade. Tho Navy
Department has purchased twenty-five clipper
ships lor the blockade, and they are being
rapidly fitted for the service.. Four of them
will sail In the course of next week. All tho
rebel ports will soon bo effectively blockaded.
Rebel Ammunition. It is said that many
marbles, which had evidently been used for
bullets by the rebels, were found on the field
of battle, as well as cartridges composed of
powder and marbles and shells filled with bro
ken glass and pebbels.
Treason Active in the City. There is a
rumor that traitors have been trying to spike
tho cannon defending the capitol. The War
Department has had its attention called to the
Even those who are in the enjoyment of perfect
health frequently have need to recourso to tonics

and will take measures to give the superficies of
each, and publish the result with their reports.
They will also, before awarding any premiums,
require of the competitors full statements as to the
manner and cost of feeding as required by tho
regulations of the premium list.
When there is but one exhibitor, although he
may show several animals in ono class only one
premium will be awarded, that to the first, or oth
erwise as the merits of the animal may be judged.

in his power, for tho safety of stock and articles
on exhibition after their arrival, and arrangement
on the grounds, but will not be responsible for any
