Raftsman's fmmral BY SAMUEL J. BOW. CLEARFIELD, PA.. JUNE 18, 1862. SOME LIGHT AMID THE GLOOM. . la a State Convention recently held at Ral eigh, North Carolina, the Hon. John A. Gil mer, in speaking of a bill for the taxing of slaves to pay tho debt contracted by his State daring the rebellion, made nso of the follow Ing language : "I had no hand ia bringing about this un holv war. I was not in favor of secession, and am not now. I love the old Union, and long to return to its folds. I had no voice in con tracting this debt; I have been opposed to it all along. Notwithstanding this, I am willing that my slaves should bo heavily taxed to liquidate this unjust debt. Yea, I would glad ly emancipate them all if it would restore us back as ice were before. The slavery question is the cause of this war, and we never shall have peace until a gradual emancipation measure is adopt ed." Such are the words of a Southern Slave holder. Although, at the time, a member of a Convention which was devising ways and means to liquidate a debt contracted In sup port or the rebellion ; yet it is clear, to every candid observer, that bis heart was with the old Union, and that he spoke like a man who wonld sacrifice every negro ho owned rather than the Union should bo destroyed. But, while there are some such bold and patriotic nes in the South, there are many in the North who sympathise with traitors and trea son. Such northern men are unworthy the namo of "freemen." The masses in the South are deceived by the leaders in the re bellion, and therefore deserve our pity. But the intelligent men of the North have no good excuse for the course they pursue, and conse quently deserve the contempt of all honest and patriotic men j for they, like Esau of old, would sell their "birth-right" for a "a mess of pottage," (i. e. for a negro slave,) if tbey eould thereby gain political distinction and political power. They would see the Union destroyed rather than one of their "Southern brethern" should lose a negro, or they be de ttrived of the emoluments of office. Not so with Mr. Gilmer, lie foves the "old Union," and "longs to return to its folds." lie would "gladly emancipate them all," (his slaves,) if that would place North Carolina in the same position in the Union that she enjoyed pievi as to secession. lie says, "the Slavery question is the cause of this war, and we shall never have peace until a gradual emancipa tlon measure is adopted." Let the sympa ihisers with seceesion in the North ponder well the wofQa of this Slaveholder. They are evidently the promptings of a generous and patriotic heart, that longs to be freed from tho despotism which surrounds it. Mr. Gilmer lias put himself boldly upon the record. There can bo "only patriots and traitors" now, and be places himself in the former class. Let all Northern men imitate bis example and his willingness to. sacrifice their all for tho sake of the Union. Let them generously submit to the fates of war which this rebellion for sla very has brought upon us for the probability is, that the free people of the North will not soon again "bow their necks under the yoke of any party that refuses to sustain the Ad ministration" in tho present hour of the na tions peril. Provisional Govkehments South. Sena. tor Harris' bill to establish Provisional Gov ernments in the rebel country, as reported from the Committee on tho Judiciary, is amended so as to empower the President to establish Provisional Governments for each of the rebel States' not districts, as it originally stood : and a clause is added providing that the Legialat ive power shall not be so exercis ed "to interfere with the laws and institutions existing in such States at the time tho author ities assumed to array the same against the United States further than shall bo necessary to carry into effect the provisions and purpo set of this act." Those changes suggest some important questions not unlikely to be discuss ed when the bill comes under consideration Thb DraxcT Tax or Pebnstlvahia. The quota of Pennsylvania of the direct tax of $20,000,000 was fixed at about $2,000,000. Mr. Moore , the State Treasurer, and Mr. M. McMicbael, Jr., arrived in Washington on Wednesday the 11th June, to settle with tho Government, and they had an interview with the Secretary of tho Treasury, and the amount necessary over and above tho claims of tho State against the National Government was paid by Mr. Moore, and the entire claim set tled. Comihci North. The northern rebel press try to create alarm by the assertion that if the slaves are emancipated tbey will all come North. These same papers, ia their advocacy of slavery in the territories, or "popular sov ereignty," have declared over and over again, that northern climates were uncongenial for negroes and slavery would not extend north if the laws allowed it to. Which has changed the advocates of slavery or tho climate North and South 7 It is reported that the military authorities of Washington have taken possession of the Trinity Church of that city for a hospital. The Rev. Mr. Lyle, the rector, it will be re collected, refused to read tho Bishop's prayer of thanksgiving for the Union victories. WHAT CAN BE DONE. Some timid people fear, if Mr. Lincoln's gradual emancipation policy were to be car ried into effect, the free States would be over ran with the manumitted blacks. Tbey seem to forget that the President's plan embraces colonisation as well as emancipation. They also overlook the fact that there Is a great de mand for laborers in the Island colonies be longing to Denmark, France, and other Euro pean natious, and that if the former had the opportunity they would convey the negroes who might be freed here to those islands with out cost to our Governmeni. This subject is likely to tecoive some attention at Washing ton shortly. A dispatch from there dated June 10th, says : Colonel Kaastotf, Charge d' Affaires of Den mark, has addressed a letter to the Secretary of State, upon the subject of the advantages offered by the Island of St. Croix for the em ploymentof persons of this country of Afri can extraction, and negroes found on board vesselsjcaptured by our cruisers. The island he says, has been checked in progress for want of manual labor, and be invites the United States to enter into a Convention whereby the contemplated emigration may be placed under the protection of the two Governments. The Governor of the Danish West Indies has also appointed a special agent, who has arrived in this country, to make the necessary arrange ments. Free transportation is offered to all who will engage to labor ou the sugar planta tions for three years, at the same compensa tion as is given to the native population Recaptured Africans, being semi-savages, must, however, undergo apprenticeships. Secretary Seward, in replying, says he is not authorized to accept the proposition, at this time, for a convention. The disposition of recaptured Africans is not, prescribed by law. It is probable, however, that Congress may be disposed so to modify the existing legisla tion upon the subject as to meet the wishes of the Danish Government, lie has submitted copies of the correspondence to the Chairman of the Judiciary Committed in each House of Congress. Col. RaastotT, in response, says the place he had furnished would be entirely satisfactory from a Christian and humane point of view, and would, moreover, relieve the United States from a great moral respon sibility and from the very largo expense which, if he is correctly informed, is contract ed with the present arrangements for the trans fer of the recaptured Africans to the republic of Liberia. Thk Proposkd Exchange of Gem. Buck- hkr. Tho Kentucky Delegation in Congress waited upon the President on Wednesday to protest against the exchange of Gen. Buck- ner for General Prentiss, proposed by the rebels as the sine qua non of a general or par tial exchange of prisoners. On Thursday morning Garret Davis introduced a resolution into the Senate requiring General Buckner to be delivered up to the civil authorities of Ken tucky for trial. In a speech in support of this motion, he described General Buckner as the worst of scoundrels, the rebel most deserving of punishment to hang whom he manifested a disposition to put aside ail considerations connected with the sufferings of our own off! cers and soldiers in the hands of the rebels, or with the consequences in the nature of re taliation likely to flow from such action. Sen ator Grimes explained the real significance of the resolution, and the results of its adoption, in the continued incarceration in filthy rebel dungeons of many brave national soldiers, whom the rebels would not exchange unless Buckner was released. . Senator Browning followed in the same strain. Neither Senator could preceive how General Buckner's case differed from that of other rebels. It is be lieved that the Government has as yet come to no final conclusion touching the reply to be returned to the rebel authorities, but the probabilities are that it will not be unfavorable There is not one of these traitors but de serves banging, but tho lives of our suffering prisoners are too precious to be sacrificed for even the purpose of punishing Buckner. Our own men must be saved first, and then wo will catch the rebels and punish them after wards. Noetic Carolina. A gentleman who had been spending several weeks in North Caroli na, whither he went a conservative, has re turned a' radical. He found that the army bad experienced a similar change of heart. A little observation there convinces both civil ians and soldiers tl.at the rebellion will not be suppressed until its cause, slavery, be destroy ed. He believes that there is very little real loyalty in the State, but much willingness to submit, in consequence of tho belief derived from bitter experience, that the rebellion has cost more than it has come to. Ho beard from our prisoners returning from Saulsbury and Raleigh the most deplorable accounts of star vation and misery which tbey had witnessed from their prison windows. From what he saw and heard he was convinced that Gov. Stanly already doubted as to the policy of his proceedings, all things considered. He had not returned any more fugitive Africans, nor had be on the other hand, however, recinded his order forbidding vessels from taking any of them away. Gen. Bdknside's Opinion. Gen. Burnside's reports from the Peninsula, where be spent several hours with Gen. McCIellan, are favor able. He sees no reason why, with good weather, onr army should not bo in Richmond within a very few days. He does not think that the rebels are strengthened by their forced levies, but believes that undisciplined numbers endanger an army which they appa rently reinforce, as was the case at Newbern, where the raw North Carolina militia threw the whole rebel force into a panic. General Burnside had an interview with the President, Secretary of War and several Senators, in the course of which he made a long explanatory statement respecting the action of Governor Stanley in the matter of closing schools and returning fugativo slaves, which increased the desir to hear directly from Governor Stanly himself. A Baltimore slave trader, who is largely en gaged in the traffic in human flesh, testified before the Emancipation Commissioners, on tho 11th inst., that slaves are worth nothing in Maryland, tho negroes are running away so fast that their valuo sensibly depreciates. IMPORTANT WAR NEWS. FEOM GENERAL FREMONT'S ARMY Another Battle near Harrisonburg. General Fremont's Headquarters, Har risonburg, June 7, 1862. In the skirmish yes terday, beyond the town, the rebel loss is as certained to have been very heavy. Most of our wounded have been brought in. Colonel Kane, or the Bucktail, Regiment, is in the en emy's hands. The body of Captain Haines, of the New Jersey cavalry, has been found. Captains Shellmire and Clark, of the same regiment, are prisoners and not wounded. Col. Ashby, the famous rebel cavalry leader, is killed. This is ascertained from people living near, and from the prisoners taken. Major Green of his regiment was shot by Cap tain Broderick, of the New Jersey cavalry. Gen. Fremont's Headquarters, 8 miles beyond Ilanisonburg, Va., June 8. Gen. Fremont has overtaken the enemy, of whom he has been in pursuit for a weak, and has forced him to fight and driven him, with heavy loss from his chosen position. He left Harrisonburg this morning at G o'clock, and advanced in pursuit of Jackson by the road leading to Port Republic. On the left of the turnpike to Stanton, seven miles beyond Har risonburg, the advanced guard discovered tho enemy posted in the woods, to the left and front, apparently in force. Artillery was sent to tho front and commenced shelling, without eliciting any reply. Jackson having at last been forced to make a stand with his whole army, had completely masked his position in the woods, and various skirmishers and caval ry were sent lorward. lhe whole column came rapidly up, and a line of battle, extend ing nearly two miles, was promptly formed under the direction of Col. Albert, chief of the staff. Before it was completed, Gun. Stahl with the Garibaldi Guards, became engaged with the enemy on the extreme right, and forced him to fall back. At half past 12 o'clock a general advance was ordered, and the whole line moved lor ward. Gen. Schenck the right, and Gen. Stahl, with all his brigade except the Garibal di Guards, the front. Gen. Blenker, Gen. Bohlen, and Col. Steinweickher's brigades composed the reserve. Tho line moved down the slopes of three hills into tho valley, and up the opposite ascents, which at the sum mits were covered with woods. In these woods, and in the belts and in the heavy tim ber beyond, tho enemy were posted. Gen. Stahl, on the left was first engaged. Gen.Mil roy and Gen. Schenck found tho enemy soon after, and the battle almost immediately be came general, ucn. btahl. after bcrivner battery had shelled the rebel position, advanc ed the 8th and 45th New York regiments through the woods into an open field, on the other side of which the enemy's right wing was concealed in the woods. Tho 8th advanc ed gallantly under a heavy hre, but being so long unsupported by the 45th, and largely outnumbered, were finally forced to retire Col. Wietsball was severely wounded, and the whole regiment badly cut up, losing not less than 300, more than half of its strength The enemy's pursuit was checked by tho ar tillery. Gen. Stahl finally withdrew bis bri gade to a strong position, repulsing a flank movement and holding his wing firmly. Gen Milroy advanced his centre, tho artillery fire compelling the enemy to give ground. Gen. Schenck, on the right, twice drove the rebels who attempted to turn his position. Along the whole line our artillery.underCol Pilson's direction, was served with great vig or and precision, and our final success was largely due to its enect. The enemy sobered moat severely. One rebel regiment lost two thirds of its number in an attempt to capture Wildrich's Battery, which cut them to pieces with canister at fifty paces. The rebel batter ies were repeatedly silenced and forced to a bandon their positions. Col. Cluzret. with his weak brigade, took and held the centre of the enemy's position, and has his encampment there to-night. Our forces were outnumbered at all points but have occupied tho rebel line, and forced them to retreat. The loss is heavy on both sides, the enemy suffering especially from ar tillery. The Garibaldi Guards lost nearly 200. the 25th Ohio CO. The total loss is esti mated at from 600 to 800 killed, wounded and missing, Col. Van Gilsa,-of tho DeKalb regi ment: Capt. Paull, of the 8th N. Y. ; Capt Miesner, of the JWth N. Y. ; Capt. Bichute of the 29th N. Y. ; Capt. Chas. Worth, of the 25th Ohio, and Surgeon Courtwell, of the 82d Ohio, are all wounded. Many other officers are wounded or killed. The rebels fought wholly under cover, whi le our troops were forced to advance through open fields. The enemy's advantages of po sition and numbers were counterbalanced by Gen. Fremont's skillful handling of his troops and tho coolness and determination with which he pressed his success. Tbe fight was furious for three hours, and continued til nearly dark. Our army sleeps on the field of battle. Headquarters Armt in the Field, Camp near Port Republic, June 8, 9 p. m. To the Hon. 22. M. Stanton, Secretary of War : The The army left Harrisonburg at six this morn iug, and at half past eight my advance engag ed the rebels about seven miles from that place, Union Church. Thi enemy was very advantageously posted In the timber, having chosen his own position, forming a smaller circle than our own, and with his troops form ed in masses. It consisted, undoubtedly, of Jackson's entire force. Tne battle began with heavy firing at 11 o'clock, and lasted with great obstinacy and violence until 4 in the af ternoon, borne skirmishing continued from that time until dark. Our troops fought oc casionally under the murderous fire of greatly superior numbers, the hottest of the small arm fire being on tbe left wing, which, was held by Gen. Stahl s brigade; consisting ot hve reg ments. Bayonet and canister shot were used freely with great effect by our men. Tbe loss on both sides is very great, and ours is very heavy among tho officers. A full report of those who distinguished themselves will bo made with partiality. I desire to say that both officers and men behaved with splendid gallantry, and that the service of the artillery was admirable. We are encamped on tho field of battle, which may be renewed at any moment. J. C. I remont, Maj. Gen. Com Fight between Gen. Shields' advance and Jack' sons troops. Lurat, Va., June 10, via Washington, June 11. Colonel Carroll, commanding tho Fourth brigade, consisting of the Eighty-Fourth Pennsylvania, and Eleventh Pennsylvania Seventh Indiana, and first Virginia regiments numbering altogether about one thousand six hundred strong, reached Port Republic on Sunday. A reconnoissance was mado and the enemy found to be in town. After a skir mish, Colonel Carroll concluded to hold the bridge, and' ordering that it should not be burnt, put his guns in position to command it At 6 o'clock on Monday morning he was opened on by some twenty heavy guns, wjiich had been placed in position by tne enemy du ring the night. Our forces tried to reach the bridge repeatedly, in order to destroy it, but tbey were met by storms of bullets, and were obliged to retire. A large cavalry force of the enemy then crossed tho bridge and attack ed our troops, while their infantry followed. Our men opposed them at every step, often driving them back with heavy loss; but the numbers after Gen. Tyler's Third Brigade ar rived, were so much inferior to the enemy theirs being at least five to one that it was impossible to hold our position and we were compelled to fall back, our boys fighting every foot of the way. After falling back some three or lour miles, abody of cavalry wero sent to attack us, but were received in such a manner as to compel them to retire, when tbe engagement ended, having lasted five hours. Our loss in killed and wounded is not known but it is large, as is also that of the enemy. We lost a large number i:f prisoners. During tbe fight Col. Carroll's horse fell with bim, injuring the Col onel badly. Capt. Kelly, of Gen. bhield 8 stall, was badly injured inihe head. Ho re ceived praise from all who saw him fighting. Col. Buckley, of the 29th Ohio, was badly wounded. His men charged three times in order to get him, but he was carried orl by the enemy. TLis was one of most hotly con tested engagements of the whole war, as indi cated by tbe loss compared with the num bers engaged. Headquarters Mountain Department, Port Republic, Noon, June 9, Via Martins di'ro, June 12. To Hon. E. M. Stanton, Sec retary of War : There was no collision with the enemy after tbe dash last night. This morning we renewed the march against him, entering the woods in battle order, his cavalry appearing on our flanks. General Blenker had the left. General Milroy fho right, and General Scbeck the centio, with a reserve of General Stahl's and Bayard's Brigade. The enemy was found to be in full retreat on Port Republic, and our advauce found his rear guard barely across the river, and the bridge in names. Our advance came in so suddenly that some of the officers remaining on this side escaped with the loss of their horses. Cannonading during tbe afternoon apprised us of an engagement, and I am informed beie that Gen. Jackson had attacked Gen. Shields this morning, and altera severe engagement, drove him down the river, and is now in pur suit. I have sent an officer with a detach ment of cavalry to open communication with Gen. Shields. This morning detachments were occupied in searching the ground covered by yester- day's action, at Cross Keys, for our remaining dead and wounded. I am not yet fully in formed, but think that 125 will cover loss in killed, and 500 that in wounded. The ene my's loss we cannot clearly ascertain, as he was engaged during the night in carrying oil his dead and wounded in wagons. This morn ing, upon our march, upwards of 200 of his dead were counted in one field, the greater part badly mutilated by cannon shot.. Many of his dead were also scattered through tho woods, and many had been already buried. A number of prisoners had been taken during tbe pursuit. I regret to have lost many good officers. Gen. Stahl's brigade was in the hottest part of tbe fight, which was the left wing, from the beginning of the fight. The brigade lost in officers five killed and seventeen wounded, and one of his regiments alone, tbe 8th New York, have buried sixty-five. The Garibaldi Guard, next after, suffered most severely, and following this regiment the 45th New York and the Bucktail Rifles, of Gen. Bayard's and Gen. Milroy's brigade. Ono of the Bucktail companies has lost all of its officers, commis sioned and non-comniissioned. lhe loss in Gen. Schenck's brigade was less though he inflicted severe loss un the enemy, principally by artillery fire. Of my staff I lost a good officer, killed, Capt. Nicholas Dunnka. Many horses were killed in our batteries, which the enemy repeatedly attempted to take, but were repulsed by cannister firo. l leei myself permitted to say that ail our tioops, by their endurance of this severe march, and their splendid conduct in the bat tic, are entitled to the Preident's commenda tion, and the officers throughout behaved with great gaWantry and efficiency, which requires that I should make particular mention of them, and which, I trust, will receive the particular notice of the President ; and, as soon as pos sible, I will send in a full report, but in this respect I am unaole to make any moro partic ular distinction, thangtbat pointed out in the description oi me oaiiie.

Chicago, Junb 11. A private dispatch has been received by the President of the Clnca go Sanitary Commission, from Cairo, which says that General Mitchell has won another brilliant victory at Chattanooga, Tennessee The enemy was completely routed, after two days' hard fighting. No particulars aro given What would the Breckinridgers do if tbey were deprived of the material for attacking the Administrationjof Mr. Lincoln, and it they could not misrepresent the efforts of loyal men to put down the rebellion and to vindicate the Constitution? They are howling over -the bill now a law appointing diplomatic repre sentatives to tho Republics of Hayti and Li beria. How candid they are and bow truthful too! Tbey do not stato that the bill passed the Senate with the aid of such Democrats as Latham and McDougall, of California, or that the general proposition was eloquently udvo cated in former days by such statesmen as Henry Clay and Daniel Webster. They seize upon the bill to frighten and delude the North em people with pictures of colored diplomatic representatives at Washington, still keeping from public view the practice of all civilized Governments, which cultivate relations with colored nationalities ; and, in the midst of this ignorant and rnthless clamor, they do not print the fact that the opponents of this meas ure in the House of Representatives presented a proposition to send an American Consul General to Hayti, thus acknowledging the whole principle of the project which is now a law. Such are the straits and expedients of men who are forever sinking the patriot in tho partisan. Philadelphia Press. A Bushwhacker Shot in MissouRi.-The Hannibal (Mo.) Herald informs us that Col John Owen, a notorious rebel, who has mado himself conspicuous in burning bridges, cars and depots, and in firing into passenger trains last summer and fall, was lately shot by a de tachment of State militia, which had gone in pursuit of him. He begged tho soldiers to take bim prisoner, but in accordance with Gen. Scbofield's late order, they refused to hold bim as a prisoner, and made an end of tbe law for him, on tbe spot. Robert M.
