nr SAMUEL J. ROW.
CLEARFIELD, PA., MAY 7, 1802.
The Case or Gex. Stone. The President
sent a -message to the Senate, on Tuesday the
29th of April, In answer to a resolution of in
quiry as to who authorized the arrest of Gen.
Charles P. Stone, the ground upon which he
was arrested, and the reasons why he has not
been tried by Court-martial. The President
says the arrest was made by his order, upon
good and sufficient evidence, as he then and
now believes, and that the only reason why he
has not had a trial ere this is because the pub
lic interests would not permit it. The officers
required to hold the Court, and who would bo
called ai witnesses, perhaps on both sides, are
of high rank, and are in the XielJ, in the midst
of activo operations. The President states,
In conclusion, that it is his pnrposo to give
She General a fair trial as soon as it can be
fione In justice to the service.
As it should be. It is proposed that all
nominations for places in the array henceforth
be 3trictly confined to officers fighting for the
country, and that the nomination be given as
a reward for brave conduct. For instauce, in
stead of making any more brigadiers out of
civilians, let them bo made out of the gallant
colonels and captains in the field. This cer
tainly is a good idea. The country needs no
wore civilian brigadiers, but it asks for the re
cognition of tho gallant services of tho offi
cers now in the field, who, by their gallantry
are whining high distinction.
Self-evident that the editors of the Clear'
field Republican wilfully misrepresent us,when
they insinuate that we made "a great ado a
bout the arrest" of tho Hon. Simon Cameron.
We have "nary" t "nervousness" on that or
any other account. "Rome" may "howl,"
but it has no terrors for us therefore, we have
no reason to shield ourselves behind the Con
stitution of Pennsylvania, by publishing ex
tracts from that document.
Tobacco and Whisht. Theso two articles
an hardly be taxed too high. They are lux
uries which could easily be dispensed with
bad better be dispensed with. Let thoso who
will have them pay for the support of the gov
ernment. Fifty cents a pound might be lev
led on tobacco. We like tho fragrant weed,
but have no objection to have it taxed up to
that figure. A high tax on these articles wi'I
be sustained by the people.
Hard Run tho editors of the Clearfield Re
publican, when they are compelled to search
the war news published during the past month
to find a pretext to marl at us. We rather
feel inclined to ask pardon of "Major-General
1'ierreTouton Ceauregard Commander-in-chief
t tko Confederate States' Army," for bavins
inadvertantly caused .our neighbors so much
uneasiness on his behalf.
Guerrillas. Letcher has issued a procla
mation "earnestly invoking" the people of that
part of Virginia from which the rebel armies
have been expelled by Hanks and Fremont "to
form guerrilla companies, and strike where
least expected, once more, for tho State that
gave tberu birth." In reply.the loyal citizens,
earnestly iuvoko Gen. Fremont "to hang eve
ry guerriHa ho catches."
Promoted. "Brigadier-Gen. J. C. Breck
inridge has been appointed a Major-General
by.llis Excellency Jefferson Davis."
The above item of Southern news will, no
doubt, be read with interest by some of the
"peculiar" friends of Mr. Breckinridge in the
New Orleans. Commercial interests are
already inquiring when tho President intends
to declare the port of N. Orleans open to the
trade of the world. It is asserted that it can
not bo opened until all other Southern ports
-are oponcd, without breaking the blockade.
Dkserve Sympathy tho junta of the Clear
field Republican, as they seem to be much de
pressed in spirit because the United States
have now a "fret Capital." They are leally
to be pitied, and we trust that a fair share of
commiseration will be extended to them.
" The Loss. A Cincinaatl paper gives the list
of the killed, wounded and missing of the Na
tional army at Pittsburg Landing at 1,735 kil
led, 7,882 wounded, 5,956 missing ; total loss,
13,661. Beauregard reports his loss in killed,
wounded and missing at over 22,000.
Kevivino. As an iqstance of the revival of
tho Northern commerce, it is stated that two
large vessels have cleared at Boston for New
Orleans with cargoes of ice, now that the U
nioa troops ocenpy that city.
Funny isn't it that a free capital "caunot
bo the capitol" of tho southern Slavehold
er's "country.'' . Cause they prefer the ge
jiial company of Samboand Dinah' la that of
iha Northern White man.
Pea Ehme. The total Union loss at the
battle of Fea Ridge, Arkansas, Is officially sta
ted at 1,85!, out of little more than 10,000 ac
tually ecga?d. This is a heavy proportion lor
the victors in a field-fight.
I SiGMifiCAXT the fact, that the Breckinridge
editors in the North, and the rebels in the
South, both apply the epithet "Hessian" to
he Union men of the North.
INTERESTING WAR NEWS.
IMPOETANT FROM THE POTOMAC.
Evacuation of Yorktown. and Gloucester.
Fortress Monroe, May 4. Yorktown was
evacuated by the rebels; last night, and our.
troops now occupy the enemy's works. A
large amount of camp equipage and guns,
which they could not destroy, lor fear of being
seen, were left behind. '
Headquarters Army of the Potomac, May
4th, 9 o'clock, a. in. To the Hon. Edw. Staun
ton, Secretary of War: We have the enemy's
ramparts, their gnns, ammunition, campjequip
age, etc., and hold tho entire line of his
works, which the engineers report as being
very strong. I have thrown all my cavalry
and horse artillery in pursuit supported by in
fantry. I will move General Franklin's di
vision, and as much more as I can, by water
up to Wet Point to day. No time shall be
lost. Onr gunboats have gone up York river.
I omitted to state that Gloucester is also in our
possession. I shall pursue the enemy to the
wall. G. B. M'Cleilnn, Maj. Gen. Com.
Headquarters Army of tho Potomac, 10
a. m., May 4. From the army correspondent
of the Associated Press: This morning at
five o'clock your correspondent entered the
enemy's works, which tbo rear of their army
deserted four hours before. Everything was
found to be in ntter confusion, as though they
left in great haste. Between forty and fifty
pieces of heavy artillery havo been left in their
works, after being spiked, together with a
largo amount of ammunition, medical stores,
camp equipage, tents and private property of
their ollicers. A negro, lef t in the town states
that a large amount of ordnance stores were
thrown into th river to prevent them falling
into our hands. Several deserters havo suc
ceeded in running into our lines. One of
them, a very intelligent man from New York,
who had been connected with tho Ordnance
Department ever since the works at Yorktown
had been constructed, states that the rebels e
vacuated owing to the near approach of our
parallels, covering the immense siege works
of our men. That they feared tho success of
of tho Union gun boats in the York and James
river, by means of which their communication
with the ourter would be cutoff. The order
was given to evacuate by Gen. Johnson on
Tlmrsday.to commence tho following morning,
which was accordingly done. Gen. Magruder
is said to have opposed the measure, stating
that if they could not whip the Federals here
there was no other place in Virginia where
they could that ho sworo in tho presence of
his men, who vociferously cheered him losing
complete control of himself. Gen. Robert
E. Lee, Commander-in-Chief, arrived at York
town on Wednesday, ai d minutely examined
the works of M'Clcllan, when he is supposed
to have recommended the abandonment of
the works, deeming them untenable.
The deserters all agree in stating that their
troops were much demoralized and dissati.slicd
when tho order was made public, as they nil
anticipated having an engagement at thut
point. They also agreed that the rebels had
ouo hundred thousand men on the Peninsula,
together with 400 pieces of arlilery. From
the best information received they have fallen
back to ChicKacomtng Creek, beyond Wil
liamsburg, where it is expected to make a
stand. Immediately on the facts becoming
known, the troops were ordered under arms
and are now in motion from the right and left
wing of the army. A large force under the
command of Gen. Stoneman, consisting ol
cavalry, artilery and infantry, are in advance,
and will probably come up with, the rear of
the enemy before night, if they remain near
The gunboats have passed abovo Yorktown
and are now shelling the xhore on their way up.
Following them is a large steamer and vessels
lo.tded with troops, who will effect a landing.
Magruder swore he was not afraid of M'Clel
Ian, if Lee was, and that if ho could not suc
cessfully fight him here, ho could no where.
Only one man was left in Yorktown and he
was a negro.
AK0THEE GREAT VICTORY. NEW OR
On the 26th April, Flag-Officer Farragut, af
ter having bombarded the forts below New
Orleans, passed up to the city with the fleet
and demanded its surrender. The Mayor and
city councils acceded to the demand promptly
the city being without defenco the rebel mil
itary Laving left before the arrival of the fleet.
One rebel gunboat was sunk by a shot and tho
iron-clad ram escaped. The rebels destroyed
their gunboats on Lake Ponchartrain. Such
is the news of the capture of New Orleans, in
brief, according to the rebel reports. No of-
ficicial account has been received.
Fort Maoon, N. C , Taken.
On tho 30th, fire was opened from our batte
ries at 5J a. m. The firing was kept up brisk
ly on bota sides until in the afternoon, when
the garrison hoisted a white flag. The firing
at ouco ceased and it was ascei tamed that tho
garrison would capitulate. Terms were agre d
upon, and on tho following day the garrison
left; on parole, tho officers having retained
their side armsx and their private effects.
The War in Alabama.
Brigadier General Mitchell, sends a dis
patch to Secretary Staunton In which ho says :
On yesterday, April 30th, the enemy having
cut our wires, and attacked during the night,
one of our brigades, I deemed it my duty to
head in person the expedition against Bridge
port. I started by a train of cars in the morn
ing, followed by two additional regiments of
intantry and two companies of cavalry. I
found that our pickets had engaged the ene
my's pickets tour miles from Bridgeport, and,
after a short engagement, in which we lost
one man killed, drove them across a stream,
whose railway bridge I had burned. With
four regiments of infantry, two pieces of artil
lery dragged by hand, and two companies of
cavalry, at a o'clock p. m., we advanced to
the burnt bridge and opened our fire upon the
enemy's pickets on the other side, thus produc
ing the impression that our advance would be
by railway. This accomplished, tho entire
force was thrown across the country about a
mile, and put on tho road leading from Steven
son to Bridgeport. , The whole column now
advanced at a very rapid rate. Our cavalry
scouts attacked those of the enemy, and forc
ed them from the Bridgeport road. We thus
succeeded in making a complete surprise, and
deliberately forming our lino of battle on the
crest of a wooded hill, within five hundred
yards of the works constructed to defend tho
brldgo. At our first fire, the guards broke and
ran- They attempted to blow up the main
bridge, but failed. They then attempted to
fire the extremity of it, but the volunteers, at
my call, rushed forward in the lace of their
fire and saved the bridge from the island to
the main shore. It is, however of small mo
ment, being only about 450 feet long. The
prisoners taken report that five regiments of
infantry and 1,800 cavalry were stationed at
the bridge. This campaign is ended, and I
now occupy lluntsville ia perfect security ;
wbila over all of Alabama, north of the Ten
nessee rlver.floats no flag but that of the Union.

A Wheeling letter nam; ThV' Jainar. -
" j w M v W Tb-
counts from'Gen. Milroy's diviiion"are'-that
his advance forces had driven, on the 21st
inst., me rebels through Buffalo Gap, within
fifteen miles of Staunton, and six from the
Covington and Staunton Railroad. The rebel
force retreating in front of Milroy, finding
that they were likely to be cut of! by Banks
at Staunton, turned southward, and are now
making way toward the James river, through
Bath and Allegheny counties. Their force
retreating in this 'direction is about 2,500. A
company sent by Gen. Milroy northward from
Monterey into Pendleton county, captured
eight rebels, including a notorious guerrilla
by tho name of Barnett. Gen. Schench, who
commands one of Fremont's Divisions, has
been advancing southward for some days, by
way of New Creek, Romney and Moortfleld.
Twenty-eight of his cavalry were attacked
before daylight on tho 23d inst., by a rebel
force of fifty men, under Col. Parsons, who
were concealed in a' private house. Three of
our cavalry were killed, and a number of the
rebels were killed and wounded. Gen. Schench
sent forward re-inforcenients, burned the
house in which the reb.ds had been concealed,
and scoured the country for miles. It is now
believed that tho rebels will do nothing but
guerrilla fighting in the Virginia Valley.
Their main forces have crossed the Blue
Ridge, and are concentrating at Gordonsville.
on tho Manassas and .Richmond Railroad. A
gentleman who arrived here yesterday frm
the Virginia Valley says that Confederate
bonds are now not taken for more ihuti live
cents on the dollar. A guest ut a Winchester
hotel gave a $50 Confederate bond in payment
of a two days' board bill, and considered him
self fortunate. Tho same gentleman reports
that runaway niggers are very abundant in
the Valley. . They are seen voampeiiiig in all
directions,and nobody takes any notice ol ihcin.
From Gen. Ranks' Column.
Harrisonburg, Va., April 29. At noon to-
day, a national salute was fired from an emi
nence near the town, in honor cf tho event at
New Orleans. - The regimental bands asscm-
bled at the Court House square and played
' II at 1 Columbia." Tho soldier gave- nine
cheers, and then tho band followed with tho
airs of the "Red, White and Blue," "Dixie"
and "Star Spangled Banner." Alter a recess,
the bands consoUdat-.'d and marched through
tho principal streets.play ing"Yankee Doodle"
and "Dixie," to the disgust of certain promi
nent inhabitants. Three thousand rebels, un
der Gen. Edward Johnson, formerly of the
United States Army, are posted a few miles
from Staunton, but in a position easily acces
sible for escape in case of Gen. Milroy's ap
proach. Tho most reliable news from Gordons
ville is to the effect that only four brigades
aro there, not numbering lo.OOOnien. Long
street with his command has gone'to Yorktown.
The Richmond Examiner, of tho 22d, says,
in effect: "The destiny of the Confederacy
is trembling on the result nt Yorktown. If
we are successful it will give us six months for
carrying out the conscription act, arming and
equipping a large army, and launching a fleet
of Merriinucs ; but, if unsuccessful, t'irginia
Late from Memphis, Tenn.
A refugeo from Memphis reports that the
town of lhimbolt was occupied by a small reb
el force, engaged in throwing up defensive
works, lie brings Memphis papers of the 20th.
The Memphis Avalanche says the Southern
people aro fast losing all confidence in their
river defences. It is generally admitted that
the Union army can be no longer successfully
resisted. It also intimates a lack of confidence
in the stability of tho Southern Confederacy
by advising its patrons to invest whatever
n'oney they have in real estate while tho pur
chase cm be made with the currency now in
circulation, which consists principally of reb
el treasury notes. The conscription law is be
ing rigidly enforced. The Union men arc se
creting themselves or flying to avoid its oper
ation. The same refugee also reports that
those merchants who are of avowed secession
proclivities are removing their goods to places
of concealment and security. Large numbers
of families are moving away daily. Tho idea
of burning the town has been abandoned, in
consequence of the determined opposition of
property holders. It was currently reported
at Memphis that Beauregard h is not over 80,-
000 men at Corinth and no hope is entertained
of his successfully resisting Gen. llalleck,
who was believed to have 200,000 men.
Purdy, Tennessee, taken.
A reconnoissance in force was mado on the
30th of April, from the right wing, four miles
this side of Purdy, on the Mobile and Ohio
railroad. They met a force of cavalry, who
fled in great haste, and could not be rallied.
They were pursued to Purdy. Our forces, on
taking possession of the town, burnt two
bridges and ran a locomotive into the river.
Three prisoners were taken. Out forces then
retired, having cut off all railroad communica
tion with the country nortli of Corinth, which,
has been a great sourco of rebel supplies
Skirmish at Neosho, Ho.
Gen. llalleck telegraphs that reliable infor

Noteworthy. Tho Washington correspon
dent of the Independent, adverting to the ef
fects of the District of Columbia emancipation
bill says : "The morning after the President
signed the bill, a slave-master in this city an
honorable man, althaugh blinded by the in
fluences of tho institution gathered his slaves
around him in his breakfast-room. He had
taken pains to conceal from them what was
going on in Congress until the emancipation
bill was a law. Now wtih the printed bill be
fore bini, and his former slaves gathered
round the door of the apartment, he said :
"Congress has made you Ires, and I am not
sorry for it. You have been faithful to me as
slaves and I will see that you receive every
advantage which the law intended to conler
upon you. Now you are perfectly free to
stay or go. Keep your present places, and I
will open an account with you, paying you
what you could earn elsewhere." Not one
desired to go, but the cry of each was, "Mas
ter, we desire to stay !" and to-day the only
"ruin" which the Emancipation act has
brought to that family or the former slaves in
it, is the happiness of all the parties concern
ed. The slaves remain in their old places,
and receive wages for their services. With
civilized and christian masters throughout
the South, this is all that a general Emancipa
tion act would do to ruin the slave States.
The colored people would remain where they
now are, and would simply be paid for their
An Incident. The following incident of
tho battle of Pittsburg Landing is related by
an eye and ear witness : "Two Kentucky regi
ments met face to face, and fought each other
with terrible resolution, and it happened that
one of the Federal soldiers wounded and cap
tured his brother, and after handing him back
began firing at a man near a tree, when the
captured brother called to him and said, Don't
shoot there any more that's father.' "
The Chicago Tribune says : "The volunteer
regiments of Illinois, embtacing at first some
70,000 names, have sustained a loss of at least
10,000 in killed or disabled since recruiting

Arizona to be Free. Congress will doubt
less pass the Arizona bill at tho present ses
sion. If it does, slavery will bo prohibited
forever in all the territories. The war will
have owe good result if this prohibition is
made and enforced. Even if the slave stato
representatives come buck into Congress, and
slavery in tho states is untouched, the nation
will have gained freedom in the capital and ab
solute slavery prohibition in all the territories.
It Is said to be tho purposo of the government,
as soon as Congress passes the Arizona bill,
to huikI out an armed force into Arizona, and
protect the territorial officers. By that timo
New Mexico will be in our possession, and the
rebels will have concluded that it is best to
luy down their arms. This is the opinion and
expectation of the government. Mr. Arnold's
bill "to make freedom national, slaver' sectio
al," will ere long come up in the House. It
should become a law at once.
Escape or a Lotal South Carolinian.
The New Bedford Mercury, says: "A letter
received in this city from Acting Master,
Joseph Ilowland, on board the U. S. steam
ship KeyBtone Stato,' on blockading service
oil' Georgetown, S. C, states that on the 1st
of April a whito man and a slave came of! to
the ship in a boat. The former pioved to be
the old United States Collector, of George
town, who had been lying in jail about a year,
because he refused to take the oath of allegi
ance to tho Confederate Government, and who
had just made his escape. The slave, who was
an excelleut pilot, had aided him in getting
away. They learned from tho Collector, that
tho Nashville had left only three days before ;
and that two other steamers were at George
town, one bound to Charleston, the other going
up Santee River, to load with cotton for Nas
sau. They were hoping to make a prize of
Adulterated Liquors. The bill of. Mr.
Pomeroy.of Kansas, introduced in the Sen
ate to prevent (lie importation of adulterated
liquors, provides that all spiritous and malt
liquors, wines, cordials, &c, shall be tested
by sworn examiners before they pass through
the custom-house, and if found impure shall
be forfeited and destroyed. Every package
of liquor shall bear plainly the name of the
manufacturer or be seized or forfeited. The
owner or consignee of any liquors condemned
maj' cause at his own expense, an analysis to
bo made by an analytic chwmist, and if the
sworn report of such claimant shall not sus
tain the examiner's report, tho liquors may
pass the custom-house. If liquors are con
demned, the owner or assignee may re-export
them within six months on executing a bond
that he will not sell them In the United
Activity in Cotton. The Nashville Union,
says : "There is briskness in the cotton mark
et at present at this point. Loads are con
stantly passing through the city on their way
to the river. One boat left with some two
hundred bales. Buyers aro scouring the
country in ail directions as far as the protec
tion of the Federal lines extend, and some
times even further. Tho planters are acting
like men of practical sense, and are quick to
trade. Good middling readily brings 16 and
17 cents in specie, or U. S. Treasury notes,
and 22 and 25 in current Tennessee paper.
There is no holding bnck on the part of the
planters. They all fully appreciate the im
mense benefits which reviving trade will scat
ter over an almost bankrupt country."
The Rights or Highways. In a case of as
sault and battery involving the rights cf pub
lic highways, tried in the Philadelphia courts
recently, Judge Thompson made the follow
ing clear and sensible statement upon the sub
ject : "The man who owns or occupies a house
has a right to tho use of half the street in front
thereof, subject, however, to the restrictions
of the right of way. Tho owner has every
right to occupy and use the street that does
riot interfere with the right of way. But in
this right it cannot ber said that a carriage or
a cart shall not 6top on the street, or in front
of his property ; yet no one has a legal right
to stop in front of any man's property so as to
interfere with the business or pleasure of the
A White Eagle. A correspondent of one
of our cotemporaries, writing from on board
the U. S. flagship "Hartford," head of the
Passes, on the Mississippi river, thus notices
what might at one time have been called an
omen : "A very large white eagle has been
floating over our heads all day long, and its
presence is hailed as a good omen- I do not
know when I have seen such a sight, . When
first discovered he was right over our mast
head, and just visible ; slowly and gracefully
he descended, until within, say eight hundred
yards, when sailing off southward for a mo
ment, he suddei ly darted upwards and towards
tho centre of the sun. Thus be sailed and
winged until dusk, when he was lost to our
Cotton Seed. The Secretary of the Interi
or sent a communication to the House of Rep
resentatives, on Wednesday last, in referei ce
to the disposal of the appropriation of $3,000
for cotton seed. Waltor Collins of Virginia,
has purchased fourteen hundred bushels for
$400, in Gen. Burnside's department, which
arrived on the 28th ult. D. C. Donohuo was
Beut to Tennessee, with $1,000, and purchased
eight hundred bushels, which has been dis
tributed in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio through
the State Agricultural Societies. $500 more
have been forwarded to enable him to supply
Iowa and Kansas, which makes $1,900 that
have been paid for seed, and the remainder is
needed for expenses of tiansportation, &c.
Non-Recognition Rebels Snubbed A
Fortress Monroe correspondent writes : Sever
al officers of the Meriimac, among whom was
Capt. Tatnall, late of the U. S. Navy, visited
the English gunboat Rinaldo, but were not al
lowed to board her, Captain Marston plainly
stating that he "was not willing to allow any

that he was in command of, orwalkwon their
