CLEARFIELD. PA.. JULY 8. 1863.
THE REBEL INVASION
A Washington correspondent writes : "It
is positively stated by a person who derives
his information through channels not easily
accessible, bat generally found to be trust
worthy, that the invasion of the North is the
work of the Copperheads or Peace Democrats;
that an emissary of this traitorous faction vis
ited Richmond a fortnight since, and while
there urged Jeff. Davis to march an army into
Pennsylvania and lay waste her fields and
burn her towns. This, the Copperhead mes
senger said, was the only road to victory for
the South. The latter part of the suggestion
was too barbarous a policy for even Jeff. Davis
to adopt, but convinced by his visitor's reas
oning of the ad'vantageousness of invading the
North, he ordered Gen. Lee on this present
THE S300 EXEMPTION.
Tho matter of commutation in money in
lieu of service under the conscription act has
been settled by a circular issued by Provost
Marshal General James B. Fry. The second
bection says : "The Commissioner of Inter
nal Revenue in each Congressional District
has been authorized by the Secretary of War,
and directed by the Secretary of the Treasury,
to receive from drafted persons who desire to
pay it for the purposo of 'exemption the mon
ey above specified($300.) On receipt of this
sum, the collector of Internal Revenue shall
give the person paying it duplicate receipts ;
one copy of these receipts shall be delivered
to the Board of Enrollment on or before the
day the drafted person is to report for du
ty, and when so delivered to the Board of En
rollment the drafted person shall be furnished
with a certificate ol exemption, stating that
the person is discharged front further liabili
ty under that draft by reason of having paid the
sum of three hundred dollars.
- VALLANDIQHAM AND WOODWARD.
It is whispered in copperhead circles that
Vail indigham will be at the Clifton House
ou the Canada side of Niagara Fajls in a few
days. : But the whereabouts of that gentle
man is of little consequence now. He is a
bout played out. The Union men of Ofcio
won't talk about, a lower figure than a hundred
thousand majority against him in October. In
fact the uominaiion of that traitor has done
more to strengthen the causa of the Union,
than almost anything else th.it has happened.
Yet, lot it not be forgotten, tho same pirty in
Pennsylvania endorsed Vallandigham, and
strongly approved of his nomination. Val
landigham and Judge Woodward have thus
been 5i?t side by side upon the same platform;
and if the people of Ohio repudiate the form
er by 100,000, by what vote shall those of
Pennsylvania reject the latter ?
By later advices we learn that Vallandigham
has arrived at Halifax.
A COPPERHEAD DEALT-WTTH
The army train that arrived here yesterday
from Harrisburg, having come to that place
from Martinsburg, Va., halted on Tuesday
evening at a point about fourteen miles from
this city. The peoples along the road were
frequently alarmedjas the train advanced, sup
posing it to be a rebel force. But at the point
where the halt of Tuesday evening occurred,
the proprietor of a fine house and estate went
to the chief officer of the train and asked if
tbey were Secessionists. By way of a joke,
be replied that they were. Thereupon the
gentleman bid them welcome, and told them
that bis bouse, grounds and anything be had
were at their disposal. The officers and men
disgusted at such Copperhead ism, and letting
him know that they belonged to the Union
army, helped themselves to what they wanted,
and treated the proprietor to a ducking. They
were principally from Ohio, and have bt en in
service for a long time in Virginia, where
they say they encountered no worse ene
my of the Govenrnment than this Pennsylva
nia Copperhead. Phila. Bulletine, July 2.
THE FLIGHT OF BRAGG.
. Amid drenching rains, and over almost ira
passable roads, the gallant Army of the Cum
berland, led by its great general, Rosecrans,
has pffshed on inTennessec,aad the blustering
rebel, Bragg, has fled before bim inglomusly.
The town of Tullahoma, which is naturally a
very strong position, and which had been for
tified by very extensive works, has been aban
doned, and it is now occupied by Rosecrans.
The delay of oar advance, caused by the ter
rible condition of the roads, enabled the ene
my to remove nearly everything from Tulla
homa, and he is as strong in men and tho mi
terial ot war as ha was before he evacuated the
place. Bat it is no small advantage t bave
captured one of his strongest positions for de
fence, and it is another advantage to have
compelled him to fly, for a flying army is al
ways more or less demoralized. It is proba
ble that Bragg's lQteution is to make it stand
at Chattanocga, where i)e will bave a good de
fensible position, and where Rosecrans will
be fifty . miles further from his base of opera
tions than be is at Tullahoma. Bat we bave

up to Bragg, bo will gain m great aud decisive
ietoryt"- ' '' - ' ' ; ' ' " ' "
Why Is Invasion Tims Far Successful ?
When a man receives a blow on the head or
in the breast, be is naturally curious whence
the blow came, unless the shock be sufficient
to produce destruction. So with the invasion
which is now spreading its terrors along our
south eastem bordersand convulsing with
the wildest excitement the people of the Com
monwealth from its centre to its circumfer
ence. Why has this invasion thus far been a
success ? Why was it attempted 1 Why have
the rebels risked a presence in a locality fil
led with a sturdy population, supposed to be
ready and able at any moment to repel an at
tack on their soil and their homes ? We will
answer. Invasion has thus far been a success
because we have not been prepared to meet it.
It was attempted because the rebels knew by
information derived from those who live in
our own midst and sympathize with them, that
tho people of the State were not prepared to
meet any foe. and least of all such a foe as
marches beneath the black fiig of treason.
Why are we not prepared for invasion 1 Let
the record answer. In his last annual mes
sage to the Legislature, in January last Gov.
Curtin called the attention ot that body to the
danger of invasion in the following language:
"The militia law of this State is greatly de
tective, and I earnestly recommend the appoint
ment of a commission to prepare and submit
an efficient ysteui, to be reported before the
adjournment of the Legis.lature.so that action
may be had on the subject at the present ses
sion. In the hurry of ordinary business the
Legislature might not be able to give the ne
cessary attention to the preparation of a prop
er measure, and eveuts which have already
occurred prove the necessity of etlectual leg
islation on the subject, so that our people may
be adequately protected."
. At this particular time, this record is sufli
cient to call forth our severest censure and
bitterest reproaches. But we forbear, and
leave to a cotemporary to denounce what can
not fail to call forth similar- responses from
our readers. The Lewistown Gazelle, refer
ring to the record, says "that in the Senate, as
well as we remember, a bill was reported and
perhaps passed: but the House was far more
interested in hounding Gen. Cameron and
passing monopoly bills than the defence ot
the State, and nothing was done.' The border
counties of Fulton, FraukIin,Adams and York,
as also Cumberland, sent Democratic politi
cians of the sympathizing stamp to the Legis
lature men who profess to believe and taught
others that President Lincoln was violating
the Constitution in arresting suspected trai
tors or aiders and abettors of treason ; that the
conscription law was unconstitutional and an
outrage, and various other charges which in
other days were construed as tor) ism, but are
now falsely converted into Democracy. One
would suppose that men thus interested would
exert their energies to place the homes of
their constituents in comparative security.
But, no ! Foul party was uppermost in their
thoughts, and the consequence is that in the
midst of a promising harvest, the citizens of
all that rrgion are fleeing, their fields made
desolate, their horses and cattle taken, and
the desolation of war visited upon their homes.
Had these men acted on the suggestion of the
Governor, a bil would have been passed au
thorizing tho formation of a State Gnard, 25,
000 strong, w ho ought to have been drilled for
at least three months, and then furlonglied
home, to be ready at a moment's notice; lib
eral pay ought to have been offered while in
service not less than 20 a month and their
transportation to and from their homes paid.
Such a force would'have saved us from an in
vasion, or at least checked the rebels in their
career of plunder until an adequate force could
have been raised to drive them from the State.
As it is,.oidinary measures, effective only af
ter the evil has been accomplished, will have
to be resorted to."
While the rebel hordes were swarming up
into Pennsylvania cn the 17th, and were seiz
ing horses, cattle, boots, shoes, &c, and In
diana also invaded by another band of rebel
at the same time, the great "Democratic Mass
Meeting" assembled at Springfield, Illinois,
and passed an out and oat peace resolution,
condemning the war, and calling for its in
stant stoppage. Had the invasion been of Il
linois instead of Pennsylvania and Indiana,
they would doubtless have done the same
thing ! Are such men patriots 7 Do such men
manifest no sympathy with traitors ? no kind
ness for them ? no fellowship with them ? Are
they loyal and true, and to be trusted I Could
they in any other way so unmistakably pub
lish to the rebels of the South, their friend
ship and their sympathy 1 Could they in any
other way so effectually invite them to invade
the North ? .
Let thinking, honest, true men consider
these things. Our own State invaded by arm
ed traitors, and a "Great Democratic Mass
Meeting," in a sister State, at the same time,
passing a resolution condemning the war wa
ged against them, against the inva'sion ! Tel

GltEAT BATTLE AT GETTYSBURG.
The Union Troops Victorious.
THE REBELS RETREATING.
The Frobable Capture of the whole of
Lee's army, etc., etc., etc.
In our last we gave an account of the occu
pation of Carlisle, Gettysburg and York by
the rebels. We now give briefly tho subse
On Tuesday the 30th June, a cavalry force
under Gen. Pleasonton reached Hanover,
when they were charged upon in the rear by
the Rebel cavalry of Stewart. Our forces num
bered about 1.800 and the rebel force was
nearly 6,000. The, battle commenced at 9 o'
clock in the morning and lasted until about
7 in the evening The contest was a succes
sion ot charges, re-charges, advances, and re
pulses. Our troops fought with desperate
gallantry and daring, and gained a brilliant
victory." We captured all the 1st South Car
olina Regiment except thirteen. .Tho rebels
in return took but sixty prisoners. Wo also
captured three field pieces.
A skirmiah also took place near Mechanics
burg, on the 30th, between our advance from
Harrisburg and some rebel cavalry, who had
two pieces of artillery. We had four guns.
The rebel loss was 10 killed. Our loss was
two wounded. The new troops behaved well.
Certain movements now seemed to indicate
that the rebels were filling bick from York,
except their rear guard. In fact they went off
in a hurry, probably having heard of Pleason
ton's movements, whose pickets were seen
within four miles of York on Tuesday morn
ing at 8 o'clock. They had demanded $300,-
000 from the citizens of York, got 30,000,
and generously agreed to wait 20 days for the
balance. Their force at York was about 8,
000 and at Wrigbtsville 3,000.
On Wednesday, June 1st, the last of the
rebels had left Carlisle, but at 5. o'clock, p. m.
a large force re-appeared on the York road.
Lee commanding the invaders demanded the
surrender of the pUce. Gen. Smith prompt
ly refused, when the Rebels placed a battery,
of six pieces in position to the left of the bar
racks, and commenced to shell the town.
Gen. Smith replied from his guns, which were
mounted in Main street, near the center of the
town. During the shelling, the Rebels made
a detour around the rai I road and fired tho bar
racks. The gas-works were also fired, sparks
from which are said to have burned several
lumber-yards, one private dwelling, and sev
eral barns. Some citizens were injured.
The Court-House was damaged, and several
shells fell upon the college building and
grounds. Gen. Lee then sent in another flag
of truce, notifying the women and children to
leave the town by 10 o'clock on Thursday
morning. The citizens in the vicinity give
Gen. Lee's force at 3,000 cavalry and one bat
tery of six gnns, light.twelve pounders. The
firing continued, with intervals, until about
one o'clock, when the rebels fell back in the
direction whence they came. Oar loss was" 3
killed and 11 wounded. The rebel loss is not
The scattered parties of rebels now began
to fall back to York Springs and Gettysburg,
and subsequent events proved that Lee con
ceutrated his forces west of Gettysburg, on
the turnpike leading to Chambersburg, where
a general engagement took place Gen. Lee
having drawn up his forces iu battle array on
the Yellow Beeches creet, where the Gettys
burg pike crosses that stream. Gen. Knipe
bad a skirmish with some rebel cavalry in
- There was a fight at Oxford Adams county,
also to-day, between some of Meade's army
and the rebels, which lasted until late in the
evening. Lieut. Col. Sickles of the 20th

and Lieut. Baines were captured and paroled

On. Wednesday the 3d, the most terrific
contest of the war ocurred near Gettysburg
Our men took up a position on the South and
east of the town when the rebels suddenly ap
peared before them and opened the fight
Gen. Reynolds corps was in the advance
and received tbe fiiist onset of the rebels.
The 11th corps soon came to his support, and
tho tight raged furiously until about 10 o'
clock at night. Gen. Reynolds was mortally
wounded in the early part of the engagement
whilst at the head of his corps. He died
shortly after being wounded. Gea. Paul was
killed. CoK Roy Stone' Wister and others
were wounded. Our loss in officers was so-
vere. Col. Coulter of the 11th Penn'a; was
brutally .murdered in the streets of Gettys
burg, because he refused to surrender. The
greater portion of Gen. Meads army came up
in the evening and took their postion in the
line of battle Geo. Meade extending his lines
to the west side of tbe town, resting his left
wing on a hill commanding thepike 'leading
to Chambersburg. .
On Thursday there was no fighting until 4
o'clock, p. sc. At that hour a bloody engage
ment was commenced, lasting until dark, an d
resulting in a substantial success to our arms
the enemy being repulsed with great loss.
The, battle was commenced by the enemy with
terrific force. Their entire army was engag
ed, and suffered a signal reverse.
On Friday, the 3d day's battle commenced
at 4 o'clock in the morning, the field of con
test being on tbe south side of Gettysburg,
and the musketry fighting being wholly in
the woods, while the artillery was posted on
eminences, from which tbe timber had been
cut. The attack on this day, as on tbe day
previous, was commenced by tbe rebels, our
right being the main point aimed at. Tbere
the fight was unceasing HDtil 10 o'clock, a. m.
Longstreet's and Hill's corps were said to be
engaged there, while Ewell was in tbe front.
The enemy as well as ourselves, had suffered
heavily in prominent officers.. General Barks
dale, of Mississippi, bad been killed, and bis
body was within our lines. Prisoners report
the death of General Longstreet. Sixteen
hundred prisoners had, up to 10 o'clock, been
sent to the rear, and more were arriving.
Gon. Meade managed his troops with admira
ble s'kill and prudence. The battle was a se
vere contest but the rebels were repulsed at
all points. Gens. Sickles, Barlow, Grabamjand
Warren were wounded, and Gen. Zoog was
On Friday the 3d the whole rebel force was
engaged, and no apparent favorable impres
sion was made upon the rebel lines to-day, but
the battle is represented as a blooldy one.
Pleasonton with his cavalry was at work and
had a contest for the possesion of the gap in the
South Mountain. Gen. Knipe with a large
force was sent forward to asist in holding this
pass to prevent the rebels from making their
escape by that route.
On Saturday, the 4th, the battle continued
with unabated severity, and Gen. Meade suc
ceeded in capturing twenty thousand prison
ers and one hundred and eighteen piecesmf
cannon. Gon. Pleasonton also succeeded in
completely cutting off all retreat of the rebel
army having possession ot" the Chambersburg
The news of Sunday and Monday is very in
definite. But from what we gather but little
fighting was done on these days. Another
heavy engagement was anticipated to take
place yesterday, Tuesday.
It is said that Gen. French has destroyed
the rebel pontoons on the Potomac, that Gen.
Couch with a large force is advancing in their
rear, acd that the Potomac is very high.
Should these reports prove to be true there is
little hope of Gen. Lee's getting safe across
into Virginia. The latest advices state that he
is retreating towards Chambersburg.
The rebel loss is given at 12.000; our loss
at about 6,000.
Gen. Price, commander of Milroy's troops,
on Saturday evening captured a rebel wagon
train ot about 100 wagons between Chambers
burg and Greencastle. Tbe contents was
chiefly plunder, consisting of clothes, shoes,
hats, and even women and children's clothing.
A great many wagons fall into our hands as
they near the Potomac.

ing rebels are greatly harrassed by them.
The rebels desert their sick and wounded.

ROSENCRANS IN TULLAHOMA.
Gen. Rosecrans has removed the restric
tions on tbe use of the telegraph, and I send
tbe following synopsis of the movements which
resulted so fruitfully:
Movements were begim on the 24th, in the
midst of a heavy, rain, which continued with
bnt slight intermission.
The enemy's advanced posts were formed
on all roadsJeading south, not more than nine
miles distant from Murfreesboro.
On the left, Butler's Kentucky cavalry were
driven rapidly through Hoover's Gap to. Beech
Grove. They bad not time to place artillery
in the finished works in the Gap. Two com
panies w here cut off and scattered among the
Stewart's division moved from Fairfield, an
alarm being giving, to Beech Grovo, and en
gaged the head ot Thomas' corps under Col.
A brisk engagement between Wilder's moun
ted infantry and Bates' rebel brigade ensued,
in which the enemy attempted to fiank us but
were repulsed by the 17th Indiana with heavy
loss. Our loss is about fifteen killed and fifty
wounded. The fight lasted eight hours. Tbe
rebels had two guns disabled by Kelly's and
The battle ended with the night, tho rebels

to Fairfield and Manchester,, and Evvicgville
and Garrison's Fork through which ourcourse
On Thursday the rebels threw up fortifica
tions and planted Darren's battery to rake
Hoover's Gap in which Gen. Thomas' corps
had been massed. Later in the evening they
opened.from five points a heavy cross tire upon
our position, but were soon silenced by Loom
is', Church's and Harris' batteries.
On Friday General Rosecrans made-aflink
movement to the right, for the purpose of
getting on the Fairfield road and cutting the
rebels off from their lino of retreat. The regu
lar brigade, Major Coolidge commanding, iu
the absence of General King at Murfreesboro,
being tbe advanco of the flank iag force, made
a rapid and brilliant charge upon Bates' rebel
brigade, forming the rebel left, driving it in
great confusion forhalf a mile- and causing the
rebel right to hastily evacuate Boach Grove,
and retreat in great baste towards Fairfield.
Col Walker, throngh fear of being flanked by
a force apparently moving on his right, but re
ally retreating, failed to move his brigade as
far as the Fairfield road, and the enemy es-j
caped, threw away everything but their guns,
strewing the country with blaukets, and knap
sacks Gen. Rosseau pursued the rebels to Fair
field, from which place they retreated to Tul
lahoma. General Reynolds, in the meantime, moved
forward and next day occupied Manchester,
taking thirty prisoners, including three of
On the centre, Clayburn's division was en
countered at Liberty Gap, and a severe en
gagement of an hour's duration ensued. Our
loss was about 300. The rebel loss is un
known. Colonel Gowen, of the Second Arkan
sas, and Major Clay Brook, ol Gen. Clay bum's
staff, were killed. Whpeler and Wallace's
brigades were cheifly engaged. The loss of

A dispatch dated Manchester, June 30th,
says : Col. Wilder's cavalry expedition to the
rear of Bragg's army, at Tullahotnt, has just
returned. With mounted irrfantry he went to
Hillsboro', thence to Dechard' and swam tbe
Elk river, and crossed his howitzers on a raft,
making fifty miles in the same day.
He tore up the track and burned a depot full
of stores, and destroyed the trestle work. At
daylight in the morning he started tip to tbe
Southern University, where he divided his
forces. One portion was sent to strike the
railroad at Tawtalon, while Wilder went to
strike at Anderson.
He found Buckner's whole division on the
train of cars going up from Knoxville to Tul
lahoma, and fell back, tearing up the railroad
from Cowan to Tracy city.
The rebels, meanwhile, having sent a power1
ful force to entrap him, he struck through the
mountain and returned to Manchester.
He took and paroled a number ot prisoners
and captured a lot of mules. The damage
done to the railroad is very serious. The ex

Patent .Medicines in general, through distrust of
their ingredients and effects ; I yet know of no
sufficient reasons why a man may not testify to
the benefits he believes himself to have received
from any simple preparation in the hope thai be
may thus contribute to the benefit of others
1 do this the more readily in regard to Hoof
land's German Bitters, prepared by Dr. 0. M.
Jackson, of this city, because I was prejudiced t
gainst them for many years, under the imp rev
sion that they were chiedy an alcoholic mixture.
I am indebted to my friend Robert Shoemaker
Esq., for the removal of this prejudice by proper
tests, and for encouragement to try them, when
suffering from great and long continued debility,
't he use of three battles of these Bitters, at tu
beginning of the present rear, was followed by
evident relief, and restoration to a degree of bod
ily and mental vigor which I had not felt fir six
months before, and bad almost despaired of re
gaining. I therefore thank God and my friend
for directing uie to the uso of them.

ATTENTION, SOLDIERS f
AND THE FRIENDS OF SOLDIERS.
We-call the attention of all having relations or
friends in the army to tne fact that HooPLvxn's
German Bitters' will cure nine tenths of the dis
eases induced by exposures and privations inci
dent to camp life. In the lists, published almost
daily in the newspapers, on the arrival of th
sick, it will be noticed that a very large propor
tion are suffering from debility. Every case of
that kind can be readily cured by llouflaiid s'ier
man Bitters. Diseases resulting from disonleis
of the digestive organs are speedily removed. We
have no hesitation in stating that, "if tLese Litters
were freely used among our soldiers, hundreds of
lives liiiUt be saved that otherwise wiil oe lost.
We call particular attention to the following re
markable and well authenticated cure of one tho
nation's heroes, whose lifo, to use his ohu lan
guage, ' has been s ved by the Bitters :'
