CLEARFIELD, FEB. 26, 1862.
COERESPONDENCE OF THE "JOURNAL."
Camp Campbell, Washington, D. C.
. February 15th, 1862. f
Editor Journal : Dear Sir : Although
you hare bad communications from many of
the camps of the Pennsylvania volunteers now
in the U. S. Service, I have not been any from
this camp, and will therefore intrude upon
your columns to let your readers know what
we are doing down here and what wc expect
This regiment (the 4th Pa Cavalry) is com
posed of two companies from Pittsburg ; two
irom - Westmoreland co ; four from Vanango
(in one of which are a few from Clearfield);
one from Lebanon and one from Luzerne ; be
sides a squadron which has been for some time
detached from the regiment. Our camp is on
"Meridian Ilill," about two miles to tho north
of the city, on the seventh street road. There
is a very fine view of the city from the camp,
and of the river below as far as Alexandria.
The regiment has been here since October
.the last company belonging to it, having come
in in November.
We live in the common canvass tents, placed
upon a foundation of poles or split logs about
three feet high, with the cracks plastered with
mud. Some of the Field officers have log
cabins built, and roofed witti boards about
like a lumberman's cabin in the woods, lu
front of each row of company tents rs the
stable constructed of posts set in the ground,
and roofed with boards sloping each wiy. It is
wide enough for two rows of horses, with the
manger in the centre.
To the west of our camp a small run inter
vening is Columbian College, now in use as a
Hospital. Near it, in a field used as a drill
ground and for reviews, the Government is
putting lip a large frame Hospital on a plan
recently adopted. It will soon be completed.
The main or central part is about three hun
dred feet in length, and on each side alternate
ly, wings or wards project nearly one bundled
feet the open space on one side opposite the
wing on the other, so that they are all in a
manner separate, yet all connected by the cen
tral part or Hall. No doubt it is being pre
pared for the great battle, which will probably
Jjo on the Potomac.
Our Colonel David Campbell is a resident of
Tittsburg. He commanded an Infantry regi
ment in the three months service: and appears
now to be applying himself closely to the
Cavalry tactics. The regiment isdivided into
threo Battalions each commanded by a
Major. The one cammanding tho Venango
Battalion, is Jas. K. Kerr of Franklin, known
to many of your county. If he is as good in
the practice, as he is apt in the theory of his
new profession, I would not fear to light under
To-day the presentation of tins State flag to
this -Tegitnent, and also to the 21st, by Gov
ernor Curtin, took place at the camp of the
latter, (camp Uiaha.n) about three miles from
here. The day was very disagreeable, having
commenced to snow in tho morning and con
tinued on till late in tho afternoon blowing
into our faces as we rode along. On the way
we passed by the 'Soldiers Home" and just
beyond, another, the volunteers burying
ground ; which is already tho home of many a
brave fellow who, no doubt, expected to liv to
"tell his battles o'er again." The ground is
enclosed by a paling fence, and containsseveral
acres. Already a good portion of it is oiled,
as nearly all the regiments in this locality bury
their dead in it. At the head of each grave is
a little board with the name, regiment, and
date of death on it. la passing along, the
regularity of the rows of head boards, looked
like corn stubble projecting through the snow.
After passing one of the many forts lately
erected for the defence ot the city, on which
several cannou were mounted, we came to
camp Graham. We found a battery of artil
lery already on the ground, (10 pieces.) W
formed in li ne on the Held, and the Governor
not having yet arrived, the officers were invit
ed into tho caiup ot the 21st where, in
lrge tent, refreshments were provided for them
In a short time tho word came to join tho line
inc trover nor naa came, me infantry was
formed in lino in the centre. The artillery on
the lett nrcu the customary salute on tho ar
rival of theComniauder-iti-chicf of the Pcnn'a
volunteers. Tho officers formed three sides of
a square facing in (the cavalry and artillery
officers mounted,) and a presentation address
was made by a member of the Penn'a Legisla
ture, who accompanied the Governor. In his
address he announced tho gratifying intelli
gence or tno capturo or r ort Donelson, at
which it was difficult to repress a cheer. The
response on behalf of the Colonels was made
by Mr. Bigham, also a member of tho Legisla
ture. At the close ot his remarks, chv.cr after
cheer went up with a will the Band plaving
'The Star Spangled Banner." Our banner is
the "Coat ot Arms" of Penn'a on a blue field
on the scroll above, 61th reg't Penn'a vol
and below, 4th Penn'a cavalry. Tho border
is trimmed with yellow silk fringe. The In
lantry flag is large ; having the stripes, but in
stead of the stars on the blue field, it has the
I'eon'a coat of arms, ard tho member of th
reg't also trimmed with yellow fringe. The
Colonels handed them to their respective
bearers, and wo wheeled by divisions and
inarcnea rowaras our camp, un the way we
met a furncral escort of infantry, with arms
reversed, preceding a conveyance on which
were two colons two more soldiers going to
their long home. Our regiment is remarkably
healthy at present there not being twenty on
tne sick list; and most of these convalescing.
One squadron of our regiment is at present
in v asumgton on Patrol duty, under the Pro
vost Marshal, (Gen. Porter.) It is said that
our regiment was placed in his brigade, from
Gen. Palmers, for the pursoso ot being used
for that kind of duty. But this does not olease
the most of the men, for they would rather bo
sent where they could be in active service-
we tun entertain a nope being among the
ones selected to reinforce Gen. Buel in Ivy
r Gen. Hunter in Missouri.
It is almost impossible to make an advance
movement here at present, for the reason that,
as one of the speakers said to-day, "nature
laid an embargo on it." It has been so wet
and muddy that we have not been able to drill
much since December last. To-night there is
about three inches of suow. Probably a day
or two will melt it and wo will have mud
about as usual. It had dried up enough so
that, within the last few days, we had began
to resume the usual drill. Our reg't is fully
equipped, except some horses which we are
choice in selecting. There arc numbers in
the Government Corral in Washington, but
they do not suit us. Each man, in addition to
the cavalry sabre, has one of Colt's Navy re
volving Pistols, (six shooters); and ten car
bines to each company for skirmishers.
If the Union victories continue to crowd
each other as they hare for the last week or
ten days, there will be many in the service
who will not have an opportunity to test their
prowess in the field, however much they may
be disappointed. Tours Truly, Union.
There are four hundred and eleven, female
postmasters in the United States Several of
these have been retained in otflce for quite a
long term of yean, one having been appoint
ed in 1828, another in 1831, snd others respect
ively, in 1838, 1841, 1849, 1850 and 1853.
Tho geoprapeical character on which drunk
ards split are said to be quartz.

twenty-first year of its existence; the THE DAI
LY TRIBUNE being some months older and THE
frt.MI-WEEls.LY TRIBUNE somewhat younger.
ror more man twenty years, this journal has la
bored in what its conductors have felt to be the
cause of Humanity. Justice aud Freedom, endeav
oring to meliorate the condition of the oppressed
and unfortunate, to honor and encourage useful
exertion in whatever sphere, and, to promote by
all means the moral, intellectual and material ad
vancement of our country. It has aimed to be
right rather than popular, and to espouse and
commend to-day the truth that others may not bo
willing to accept till to-morrow. Irr pursuing
this course, mistakes have doubtless been made
and faults committed ; but, having in ail things
incited our readers to think and judge for them
selves rather than adopt blindly our own or oth
ers' conclusions, wc believe wc may fairly claim
for this journal the credit of having qualified its
readers to detect and expose even its own errors.
To develop tho minds of the young by th e most
general, thorough and practical Education, and to
encourage and stimulate Productive Industry,
through free grants of Public Lands to actual set
tlers ami cultivators, as also through the protec
tion of immature or peculiarly exposed branches
from too powerful foreign competition, are among
the aims to which this journal has adhered
through good and evil report, and which it stead
fastly commends to American patriotism and
As to the Civil ar now devastating our conn
try, we hold it to have originated in a Rebellion
more wanton, wicked, inexcusable, then was ev

to raise higher the walls of caste and tighten the
chains of oppression. Having done all we could

this War and witnessed tho lorbearanee. iti.
ness, and long-sutt'ering with which the Federal
(jovemiucnt sought to avert its horrors, we hold
it our clear duty, with that of e-ery other citizen
to stand by the nation and its fairly chosen n.
Icrs, aud to second with all our energies th.ir f
forts to uphold the Union, tho Constitution, and
the supremacy of the laws. And, though the Re
bellion has become, through usurpation.deception

liese the American Republic far stronger, and
that the unanimous, earnest efforts of loyal hearts
and hands will insure its overthrow. But on nil
