To the Public We, tho undersigned vol

in which we havu been treated by one Col. A
Bishop Sbaw, of Sbawsvilie, in this county
We happened to be indebted to him in small
amounts, fur articles purchased out of his
store, and having no work and being unable
4o get the money that was due us, we were of
courie, unable to pay him our indebtedness
before loaving, but we had enlisted in the ser
vice of our country, and intended to pay all
our just debts as soon as we could command
the means. But without waiting to give us an
opportunity of arranging them, he meanly
sued us after wo had been sworn into the ser

CORRESPONDENCE OF THE "JOURNAL."
Camp Texally, Sept. 26; 18G1.
Friend Row : I thought, as I had somo
leisure this afternoon (it being fast day) I
would write you a few lines, by way of keep
ing up a familiarity with those at a distance ;
thinking the press would be the best medium
through which to do so.
A hasty glance over onr trip will serve to
bring me to our destination. We left home
on Saturday morning and at 1 a. m. Sunday
morning we were in Harrisbuig, and at 8 a. m.
we reached Baltimore. There were 25 or 30
recruits for the several Pa. Regiments, beside
a full regiment of Ohio troops on the train.
All along the rout we could see preparations
for war, and abundant evidence of the means
used by the traitois for obstructing tho admin
istration of the government,by burning bridges,
etc. The Relay house is a beautiful place,
and memorable as the spot where the famous
Winan's steam gun was overhauled ; and at
the commencement of this unholy war no one
would have dreamed that treason would have
dared to raise its hydra head in that quarter.
In passing through Baltimore I could not
help but think of the unwarranted murder of
the Massachusetts troops in April last ; the
memory of which is enough to make the blood
of every patriots heart boil with indignation,
and resolve that he would sacrifice the ease
and comforts of home, yea life itself, before
he would consent to the destruction ot our
glorious Union by such a contemptable rabble.
On arriving at the Washington depot, we
found there was no regular train to that city
until Monday. But, through the kindness of
Col. Irvin of tho 49th, (who by the way is a
perfect gentleman,) we obtained a seat in the
officers car of a train he had chartered lor
tho transportation of his regiment." It was
indeed a glorious sight to see the long train of
car, laden with their precious cargo of human
lives and propelled by two ponderous engines,
wending its way slowly out of the would-be
rebel city to a merry tune from the band and
amidst the waving of flags, and the ladies
cheering andwaving their bonnets and hand
kerchiefs from the windows and house tops at
every point. "Midst such demonstrations of
loyalty, where but a short time ago was an
archy and bloodshed, ouo would almost be led
to believe that the stupendous preparations for
war were altogether useless. But when you
turn to the scenes that are daily transpiring
across the Potomac, tho mind changes, and
the fact comes homo with deep significance,
that before tranquility is again restored many
a brave and loyal heart will cease to beat.
Picket skirmishing is of daily occurrence a
cross the river. On Tuesday quite a sharp
fight took place in the vicinity of Munson's
hill ! During the action a bom.which had been
a bone of contention between the opposing
forces, was fired 4 times (finally with success)
by a Federal, who shot hot slugs from his gun
until be accomplished his object. The feder
als consisted of Michigan troops.
There was quite an excitement in camp yes
terday ; caused by the arrival of the "Buck
taiIs"from Darnstown. They came by order
of Gen. MCall, who desires to have his com
mand as near together as possible. I under
stood last night that all the Penn'a Reserve
had orders to march at a moments notice
but where do not know. Certainly the time
is approaching when the rebels will have 'oc
ular demonstration of the capacity of the
Government to defend itself.
Gen. McCIellan will have his defenses com
pleted at an early day. He makes daily obser
vations from the balloon on Arlington Rights
or from Chain bridge. We could sec it dis
tinctly on Monday evening from the quarters
of the 6th. Within a short distance from us
(in sight) is a fortification mounting 10 or 12
guns, which is surrounded by a ditch 12 feet
wide and 6 deep. Immediately outside they
have placed trees with the buts next the ditch
and the limbs cut sharp. The men are all
anxieus for a fight, and when the order came
last night to get ready, it was but a short time
until the boys were prepared lor any emergency.
I have joined company A, 1st Penn'a Artil
lery, Col. Campbell, in the capacity of an
artizan ; and hope, by dodging the balls, to do
some little for our Government when it under
takes to teach . the rebels a lesson that they
will not soon forget. Yours, W. R.B.
we are ready, and will come in about the time
the ball fairly opens-
The inhabitants here are about equally di
vided between Union and Secession ; but cir
cumstances are such, that the latter seldom
publicly express their opinions. They call
themselves, "Southern Rights" men, or the
peace party a, party, that will find the peace
they merit, at the point of the bayonet and the
cannon's mouth. Yours, II n. -
Camp sear Darnstows, Md., Sept 23d, 1861.
Dear Row : It is now twenty eight days,
since the principal part of the Division of Gen.
Banks have occupied the same position, near
the above named village. I presume, that not
one of the many Regiments, have march
ed one mile in the direction of the Potomac
six miles distant since their arrival here.
For some reason, our men are desirous to a
wait, on the Maryland side, th attack of the
Confederates. From the best information,
the Confederate force on the Virginia side of
the Potomac, observing the movements of
Gen. Banks, do Dot number more than five or
six thousand, and It is not likely that tbey
will leave their vantage ground. Our army
have been held in readiness to march, at an
hours notice, for the last twenty days ; but
this is all that is done in the way of march
ing except when on drill. This drilling, in
the Bucktail Regiment, is kept up with great
regularity at sunrise two hours, company
drills during the day, and dress parade of two
hours in the evening.
Cols. Biddle and Kane are excellent officers,
and held in the highest esteem by the Regi
ment. From what I have seen and know, the
confidence of the Regiment in their officers,
when the day of battle arrives, (for come it
must,) will not be misplaced. This Regiment
is considered one of the best in service. I
say this, without disparaging in the least, any
of the troops in the field. I believe all that
our army now desires is to be led at once to
meet the enemy on Virginia soil.
It is rumored to-day, and I suppose cor
rectly, that Col. Biddle'8 Regiment, with tha
Penn'a Regiment of Col. Mann encamped i;i
this vicinity, will march to-morrow for Wash
ington. Our boys will then have a meeting
with their comrades of the 5th Penn'a Re
serve, Col. Simmons. This is also a first rats
Regiment. I presume the Penn'a Reserve
Regiments will form one corps of the grand
Army that must soon march into Virginia.
The 46th Penn'a Regiment Col. Knipe ar
rived here last evening and encamped one
hundred perches from the Kane Rifle's. This
Regiment lately left Harrisburg. A sad scene
has attached itself to the early movements of
this Regiment. Last evening on their maich,
and only five miles from where they intended
to encamp, a private in one of the companies
(I believe from Luzerne county) became dis
orderly, and by order of the Major of the Reg
iment was tied up to the rear of one of the
wagons in the train. In a few minutes the
private freed himself from the cords that
bound him, and taking a' musket out of the
hands of one of the men shot the Major dead.
His body was brought to this place and for
warded to his late home. The private was
tried by Court Martial to-day and sentenced
to be hung which sentence will be carried
into eft'-ct when approved by the President.
Should our Regiment march to Washington,
Capt. H. D. Patton will be compelled to re
sign either his Brigade or Regimental Quarter-Mastership.
Col. . Biddle is desirous that
the Qr-Master shall accompany the Regiment,
and Gen. Banks appears to wish his continu
ing in the Brigade. I cannot say which of the
appointments he may determine to hold.
There are about twenty-five of this Regiment
sick iu the Hospital, and some others in their
tents. There have been two privates of this
Regiment buried since my arrival here.
Yours, A. I.
Camp at Darnestowx, Sept. 26, '61.
Friend Row : One of the most welcome
visitors nho finds his way into camp, is tho
mail carrier ; and never is he more welcome
than when he brings the Journal, for in it we
are always sure to find the news from home.
Now and then also comes a letter from company
C. (Cadets), who were our companions through
all the fighting, dust and travel in Western
Virginia. We separated at Harrisburg. The
Cadets were placed in Gen. M'Call's commaud
and the Rangers under Gen. Banks.
I caunot say that we have done much fight
ing sinco we are here j but we have learned
what is better, that which will insure success
on the field of battle, we have learned the
importance ot subordination we have become
proficient in drill, and have now the confidence
and energy necessary 10 carry us through a
We are particularly fortunate in having over
us officers, who have not their superiors in the
service. Col. Biddle, who for his military
experience and ability was promoted to a
Brigadier General, is the commander of our
Brigade, being the first in the division. Lieut.
Col. Kane is a gentleman and one of the bra
vest officers in the division ; and one who will
not ask a man to go where he does not take
the lead himself. Capt. Irvin, our immediate
commander, is one of the most efficient, thor
ough, and popular Captains in the Regiment.
In our skirmishes on the upper Potomac, ho
exhibited the courage and coolness ot a veteran,
and instilled in us that confidence which is so
necessary for men to have in their commander.
Capt. II. D. Patton, who was our Regimental
Quartermaster, has recently received the ap
pointment of Brigade Quartermaster. A bet
ter selection could not have been made, as he
has proven himself well qualified for this im
portant position Sergeant J. P. Bard is his
assistant. By this appointment we have lost
a jolly comrade and a good soldier.
We have become pretty well accustomed to
soldier life, and think of it now only as a mat
ter of business. For my part the more I get
of it, the better I like it. We have some
grumbling now and then in regard to the
"grub," but after all, I believe, "slap-jacks,"
pork and beans are about as substantial as.any
thing we could have. "Slap-jacks" (or sink
ers) are a United States institution, and pecu
liar with that serviceTnly. It was some time
before we could get in the way of taking hold
of the pan over the fire, and with a sudden jerk
t urn a dozen jacks at once.
We are looking anxiously for the paymaster,
as we are "hard up," a term, when applied to
a soldier, signifies that be is out of money,
out of tobacco, and nothing in his canteen
his friends all being in the same predicament.
. We are encamped in a pleasant grove near
Darnestown, and it is not likely that we will
be moved from here until we cross the river,
where we calculate to occupy! ioni . vacant
Secesh camp. A move of that kind,'!? proba
bly soon be made, as the frequent firing of ar
tillery and the unusual bustle araongthe mili
tary, indicates that something1 4s la the wind.

II. II. Swoope Esq : Dear Sir : Having
been long convinced of the necessity of a
change in the custom of electing the youngest
member of the bar to the office of District At
torney, and believing that itxmght to be in
the hands of an older and more experienced
lawyer, we request you, if it meets your ap
probation, to allow yourself to be voted for, at
the approaching election, as a candidate for
that position. Without desiring to reflect up
on the manner in which the duties of the of
fice have been discharged by those who have
hitherto held it, we may at least say, what
is apparent to all, that to place it in the hands
of young and inexperienced men, is fraught
with unnecessary expense to the county, not
only from the necessity of employing assistant
counsel in every important case, but from the
constant increase of crime by reason of inef
ficiency in its prosecution. For these and
other reasons, without respect to party, we re
quest you to be a candidate, and pledge you
our cordial and hearty support.

Clear field, .24th Sept., 1861.
Gentlemen : Your letter requesting me to
be a candidate for the office of District Attor
ney at the approaching election, is before me
Although I have heretofore taken a somewhat
active part in politics, I have never been a
candidate tor omce, and now, alter 1 have in a
great measure retired from the political arena,
it is with considerable reluctance I yield to
your request and the solicitation of friends, to
permit my name to be used asyou desire. In a
pecuniary point of view, the office would bo
a disadvantage to me, for it must be evident,
that the defence of a comparatively few crim
inals would yield more than the entire revenue
from the fees fixed by law for the prosecution
of the whole : and were there no other con
sideration I should unhesitatingly decline
your flattering request. But, (without wishing
to detract from the gentlemen who have here
tofore held the office.) I have not been blind
to the fact that a reform is much needed in
the prosecution of crime in our county, and if
my fellow cittzens think it in my power to
establish that reform, I would be derelect in
duty, as an inhabitant of your county, did I
refuse to manifest ray willingness to make the
effort. If, therefore, the people see proper to
place me in that position, it will be my duty,
as it shall be ray pleasure, to serve them to
the best of my ability, and could I be able,
by a zealous and faithful discharge of the du
ties of the' office, to diminish the criminal
business with which the time of our court has
been almost exclusively occupied reflecting
discredit upon our community and involving
our county in great expense I. would be
amply repaid for any time and labor it might
cost me. With my grateful thanks for this
manifestation of your esteem and confidence,
I remain Yours truly, II. B. Swoope.

-Col. Mulligan, as previously stated, had to
surrender at Lexington, Missouri ; his com
mand being 59 hours without water. The men
were sent across the river and liberated on pa
role, only the commissioned being retained as
prisoners. It is said that Col. Mulligan wept
like a child when he found himself compelled
to surrender. As soon as the surrender took
place a party took down the flag and trailed it
in the dust. An immense amount of gold sup
posed to be about a quarter of a million, fell
into the possession of the rebels. It was ta
ken from the banks and buried by Colonel
Mulligan on the camp ground, some time ago.
The rebels speedily unearthed it. The Fed
eral loss was about 150 killed and wounded,
and the rebel loss is reported at near 400. The
force was 27.000 and that of CoU Mulligan a
little over 3,000.
It is reported that some of Buckner's men
attacked the Union camp on Mud river, in
Kentucky, forty miles from Bowling Green,
under Col. nawkins. The confederates were
badly whipped, the Union men coming to
Hawkins aid from all directions with shot-guns
and Kentucky rifles.
In Western Virginia the town of Romney
was stormed by Cols. Cantwell and Ilawke.
the rebel force was 700 strong, and were com
pelled to retreat with a loss of 85 killed and a
large number wounded. Our loss was 3 killed
and 10 wounded.
Col. Le Dew of the 34th N. Y. on the 23i
discovered a body of rebels opposite Darns
town in a ravine. He threw several shells into
their midst, which scattered them in evecy di
rection. BY TUESDAY EVENING'S MAIL.
The rebels have evacuated Munson's Hill.
Gen. Smith has advanced to, and now occupies
Falls church, nis advance was accompanied
by events of the most deplorable character.
Col. Own's Irish (Phil'a) regiment, in the
darkness of the night, mistook Capt. Mott's
battery, which was in advance sustained by
several regiments, for rebels, and fired a vol
ley among the troops. Lieut. Bryant was a
bout to fire from his battery, when word was
sent that they were friends. Some 12 or 15
were killed and a number wounded. Many
conflicting and exaggerated stories are afloat
in regard to the occurrence, which are unwor
thy of belief. We await the official report.
Several Division have made an advance move
ment on the other side of the Potomac, and
Stirling events are anticipated.
From Jefferson City, Missouri, we learn that
the rebels have commenced the manufacture
of cannon, and balls of all kinds, at Lexing
ton. It appears that the rebels have large
quantities of ammunition buried in various
localities in that section. Two thousand
round of loaded shell was dug up by the reb
els in Mulligan's entrenchments on the day ot
tho surrender, our troops having no idea of
their concealment; having been there three
months. It is believed the rebels have forty
or fifty thousand men at Lexington. Gen
Fremont is preparing for a vigorous campaign,
and we may expect soon to hear of some hard
fighting in that section. It is also said that
Gen. Lane captured a rebel train at Osceola,
together with $100,000 belonging to Price.

B I T T E K S.-The proprietors and
Manufacturers of llostettcr'.t Cctelratrd Utomach
Hitters can appeal with perfect confidence to phy
sicians and citizens generally of the United States,
because the article has attained a reputation here
tofore unknown. A few facts upon thw point will
gpeak more powerfully than volumes of bare asser
tion or blazoning puffery. Th coiisamption of
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters for the last year a
mounted to over a half-million bottles, and from
its manifest steady increase in times past, it is ev
ident that during the coming year the consump
tion will reach near one million bottlos-. This im
mense amount could never have been sold but far
the rare medicinal propertiescontained in the pre
paration, and the sanction of the mot prominent
physicians in those sections of the country where
the article is best known, who not only recommend
the Bitters to their patients, but are ready at all
times to give testimonials to its emeacy in all ca
ses of stomachic derangements and the diseases re
sulting therefrom. This is not a temporary popu
larity, obtained by extraordinary efforts in the way
of trumpeting the qualities of the Bitters, but a
solid estimation of an invaluable medicine, which
is destined to be as enduring as thne itself
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters have prved a God
send to regions where fever and ague and various
other bilious complaints have counted their vic
tims by hundreds. To be able to suite confident
ly that the 'Bitters' are a certain cure for the Dys
pepsia and like diseases, is to the proprietors a
source of unalloyed pleasure. It removes all mor
bfi matter from the stomach, purifies tho blood,
and imparts renewed vitality to the nervous sys
tem, giving it that tone acd energy indispensable
for the restoration of heh. It operates upon
the stomach, liver, and other digestive organs,
mildly but powerfully, and soon restores tbem
to a condition essential to the healthy discharge
of tho functions of nature.
Elderly persons may use the Brttersdaily as per
directions on the bottle, and they will find it
stimulant peculiarly adapted te com fort declining
years, as it is pleasant to the palate, invigorating
to the bowels, excellent as a tonic, and rejuvena
ting generally. We have evidenee of thousands
of aged men and women who have experienced
the benefit of using this preparation while suffer
ing frjm stomach derangements and general de
bility; acting nnder the advice of physicians,
they have abandoned all deleterious drugs and
fairly tested the merits of thfs article. A few
words to the gentler sex. There are certain pe
riods when their cares are so barrassing that many
of them sink under the trial. The relation of mo
ther and child is so absorbingly tender, that the
mother, especially if she be young, is apt to for
get herown health in the extreme anxiety for her
infant. Should the period for maternity arrive
during the summer season, the wear of body and
mind is generally aggravated. Here, then, is a
necessity for a stimulant to recuperate the ener
gies of the system, and enable the mother to bear
up under her exhausting trials' and responsibili
ties. Nursing mothers generally prefer the Bit
ters to all other rnvigorators that receive the en
dorsement of physicians, because it is- agreeable
to the taste as well acerta?ntgire a permanent
increase of bodily strength.
All those persons, to whom we have particular
ly referred above,-te wit r sufferers from fever and
ague, caused by malaria, diarrhoea, dysentery, in
digestion, loss of appetite, and all diseases or de
rangements of the stomach, ruperanuatea inval
ids, persons of sedentary occupation, and nursing
mothers, will consult their own physical welfare
by giving to Hostetter's Celebrated Stomach Bit
ters a trial.
Caution. We eaution the public against usins
an v of the manv imitations or counterfeits, but ask
for Hostetter,s Celebrated Stomach Bitters, and see
that each bottle has the words "Dr. J. Hostetter's
Stomach BittersV blown on the side of the bottle,
and stamped on the metallic cap covering the cork,
and observe thatour autograph signature is on the
label. Prepared and sold byHostrttcrS- SuutA,
