CXEAKFIELO. PA.j OCT. 14. 1863.
Tbe newt from tbo army of the Potomac U
exciting. For several days past a movement
baa been going oa In the Rebel Army which
can ed considerable anxiety. Early on Sat
urday morning oce of Gen. Kilpat.-ick'a cav
alry brigades attempted a re-connoistance on
tbe aoutb side of Robertson's River, when
they were met by a large body of Stuart'a
Cavalry. After fighting an hour Killpatrick
was obliged to fall back upon our Inf.intry re
serves. Another severe contest ensued when
the infantry was also obliged to give way
losing a considerable number of prisoners.
A detachment of our Cavalry then made a gal
lant dasb at the enemy and recaptured all
bat 15 or 20 of our lost men. The whole of
our force, fiowever was pushed back towards
Culpepper, contesting every foot of the
ground. Heavy Bring was heard in the after
noon, indicating that tbe contest had been re
sumed. It is believed that the Rebels have
been changing their line, with a view to mak
ing a demonstration upon our right rear and
cut ofl our railroad communication. It is
aid that Gen. lleade is fully prepared fur
any movement, and ready to receive them at
any point. they may choose to attack.
Thi Nashville Press denies the burning of
the bridge by tbe rebels, over Stewart's Creek.
It says that Wheeler crossed the river atWash
!ngton,last Thursday morning, 13 miles above
Chattanooga, and passed down the Sequatchie
Valley. Tee rebels captured 60 wagons of
one of oar trains at the foot of the moun
tains near Anderson's Cross Roads, burning a
number of them, and killing about 300 horses
and mules. The train was loaded with ammu
nition, clothing, and ration. 'Forty of tbe
wagons were carry; ng medical and sanitary
stores. About fifty sutler's teams were also
lost. Gen. Mitchell with the Union cavalry,
as soon as he learned of the crossing of the
rebels, pursued them, and on Friday and Sat
urday killed and wounded 70 Rebels, took
200 prisoners and recaptnred 250 mule. 'On
reaching Walnut range tbe rebels shot 200
mules to prevent their falling into onr hands.
A more definite dispatch concerning the at
tack on Gen. Blunt and bis escort below Fort
Scott is received from Leavenworth. He was
attacked by 300 Rebels in Union uniform near
the encampment of Lieut- Pond. II is escort
broke, and ont of 100 men 78 were killed all
shot through the head, evidently after they
were captured. Gen. Blunt escaped, and,
meeting re-enforcements, took command of
them and started in pnrsuit. Gen. Schotield
telegraphed to Leavenworth that from 1.000
to 8,000 Rebels, coder Qu&ntrell, Curiae, Gor
don and Uunter, were marching on Fort
Scott, and that he had ordered Culnel Wier
to move all tbe furce Le could raise to the lat
ter place.
Lient. Commander Dobson, of tbe United
States gunboat' Seneca, reported to the Navy
Department under date, Dobay Sound, Septem
ber 24tb, that on the night of the 22d- ult. he
sent an armed boat crew up the Altamaha riv
er, and destroyed the Hudson Place Sail
Works, near Darien.Ga., entirely demolishing
boilers, engines and woiks of James II. Lock
wood. Tbe superintendent, It is two children,
a force of negroes and other employees and
two visitors, fled at the approach of our force.
Tbe works are situated within two miles from
the encampment of the rebels, and whose
pickets came very near tbe works, but they
did not discover or resist an attack.
One of the prisoners states tfeat they have a
report to tbe effect that we are raising 100.000
cavalrymen, and adds.it this is so tbo Confed
eracy is gone np.
New YoRK.Ocr.8 Intelligence from Mar
tinaburg is to the effect that there are no reb
els in the Shenandoah Valley, except a few
guerrillas skulking in the mountains. Our
cavalry have scoured the Valley as far as Stras
burg and Front Royal, without flndi ig spy
traces of rebels. Information has also been
received that there is no movement on the
. part of the enemy's cavalry towards Western
Virginia, as reported a few lava slnco.
Among tbe captures by our troops at Cum
berland Gap, was a large rebel mail bag, the
contents of which have afiorded both amuse
ment and instruction to those who have ex
mined them. Among other things, the let
ters confirmed beyond all question that the
Georgia troops are aa dissatisfied as any in
tbe Confederate service. Out of the large
number of Georgia letters in the mall, but two
placed any confidence whatever in the rebel
cause.; One gentleman wrote home for bis
wife not to sell his two pigs for Confederate
money, as it was entirely worthless. Another
ays : "if this wir aint closed soon, there wilj
be no men left. We can't fight a worldiul of
men ; tbe Sout.a can't stand it much longer
--our men are all deserting." Another ia
more explicit : "I have never seen men ao out
of heart. You had better set your house in
order, for by Christmas we shall be back in
tbe Union. If peace don't come soon.we wfll
II desert." This is tbe spirit -displayed in
U, or nearly all these Jotters a spirit of ot
ter despair for the rebel cause, and a willing
oess to take tbe Union on any terms, so ft
rings peso
we give returns of tbe election in this
county as far as beard from up to the time of
our going to press. If the districts not in,
give a proportionate vote, tbe Copperhead ma
jority will be about 930. This i loss than
tbe leaders of that party claimed, and when
all things are taken into consideration, is as
favorable a result for the Union cause a? could
reasonably have been expected. A more vir
ulent canvass never was made of this county.
Falsehood and misrepresentation of the gros
sest character were indulged in by the Cop
perhead organ and oratorG the Government
was assailed in the most outrageous manner
the President denounced as a de.'pot and ty
rant the fears of the timid and the prejudices
of the ignorant were appealed to by brow
beating and whisky not a few were induced to
vote tbe Woodward ticket, acd at least two
deserters were slipped through back alleys
to and from the polls to swell their vote.
Having a majority on the election Boards
in many of the Districts, the Copperheads had
things pretty much their own way. Mr. Twist
and five others, (Union men) not withstand
ing the fact that they had been twice enroll
ed In Knox township, (the latter claiming
them as Iter's.) were, not allowed to vote be
cause some slimy creature made oath that they
were living in Boggs. On the other hand, in
this Borough, a supporter of Woodward was
permitted to vote after be hsd stated, on
oath, that he was a married man and that bis
wife resided in Snider county whilst theLaw
rence township Board, giving ear to a fellow
stupid with liquor, who read only a portion of
the 44th section of the election hws, for a
lung time hesitated about taking tbu votes ot
two men who were qualified that they were
residents of the district and had paid taxes
within the time prescribed by the Act. These
are well-known facts which cannot be truth
fully contradicted, and will give persons a
broad an idea of how the contest was carried
on, and the election conducted by the Copper
heads in Clearfield county.

A Sword to Gen. Thma. We learn that
the Fourth Kentucky Infantry, Col. Croxton,
have determined to present to Gen. Thomas
a sp tended Bworc., as a token of their appre
ciation of him as a man and an officer. Tbe
sword has already been fowarded to Tennes
see. The scabbard is of solid silver, heavily
plated with gold, and very richly ornament
ed. The General's initials are set in the hilt
in diamonds. The following ia the insription
upon the scabbard : "Persented to Major
General George H. Thomas, by the enlisted
men of the Fourth Rentncky Regular Volun
teer Infantry ;" and on the blade, which is of
the finest steel, and perfectly tempered, is
this inscription : "Mill Springs, Kentucky,
January 19. 1862. the first victory won by the
Union Army." No man is more worthy of
such a tuark of esteem than Gen. Thomas.

The roost frigbtlul occurrence iu many years
took place in Nevada Territory, reeen:ly,and
is thus related by tbe Territorial Enterprise :
Among thj- employees of Mr. Russell, the
tnilltnan at Austin, wan an emigrant named
Cornell, a peaceful, quiet person, aud very
well liked by such as knew him. For the past
three weeks be bad shown symptoms of insan
ity, and, although these were not of a nature
to excite much attention, it was deemed best
to deaf with liiiu with caution. He went to
bed cn Saturday night last about eight orcl-ck,
and about ten o'clock his tent mate followed
his example. Fearful of exciting Cornell if
he entered his tout abruptly, the man first a
wakened bim, by calling him softly by name;
he then drew aside the curtain and was in the
act of stepping in, when Cornell struck him
a blow with ao axe, which cut his none and
forehead badly, and almost lelled bim to the
ground. Recovering in a moment, however,
he ran for his life, and Cornell alter him ; but
the latter stumbled over aTope and fell, and
the accident enabled his victim to escape.
The madman ran down into the midst ot the
town, entered a crowded saloon, and began to
lay about bim with bis axe, bestowing blows
on any that came in hW way.
The first cut a man's arm badly ; the second
severed anoiher's hand from the wrist ; the
third inflicted a wound upon a bystander's
head; also smashing the chandelier, shroud
ing the saloon in total darkness in a moment.
The invisible scene that ensued was of the
wildest description. The crowd broke with
one impulse toward the door, making chaos of
chairs, tables, and i-vcry thing that was sus
ceptible of being dismembered, and were met
there by another crowd, attracted to the spot
by the shrieks and shouts of the wounded,
who appeared as anxious to get into the sa
loon as their brethren were to g-et out. Some
body in the saloon, in the hope of dispersing
the new comers by the wholesome fear of fire
arms, discharged a pistol, which had the effect
of increasing the panic at least. But, iu the
meantime, the crazy man had escaped. .
As the news spread 'abroad, the citizens, by
common .consent, took shelter behind bolted
doors, and awaited the coining ol t hedeatroy
er with whatever of comfort the circumstan
ces permitted. After a while a man came
running from the direction of Clinton, with a
ghastly wound in the side of his head, which
had almost taken off one of his ears. He on
ly begged for water, and was too much stun
ned io answer questions intelligently. When
somewhat recovered, he said that, as he was
coming from Clinton, a man came running up,
struck him with an axe, and continued his
flight without slopping. The man, wose
name Mr. Frankenthral had forgotten, will
probably recover. A posse of citizens, arm
ed with revolvers, started at once in pursuit,
but they were too late. Cornell had slaught
ered three foot passengers already between
Austin and Clinton.
Nothing more was seen of him till early the
next morning, when bis body was found alout
ball a mile beyond the village, with his throat
cut frpm ear to ear in tact, the head was sev
ered Irom the body, the wind pipe was cut in
two, the back of the head crushed in, and a
bout the heart were five stabs, either one of
wbicb was, perhaps, sufficient to eause death.
Incident on the Battle Field. One u.ty
not long since, among ttie relics ot the dread
ful fight at Gettysburg, there was picked up
by a soldier, and presented to a lady acquain
tance, a small paper, which contained' two
seperate locks of hair attached thereto di
rected to Mr. Wellerford, from Lousiana, by
his wife, in beautiful handwriting. Below
one lock was Enny Wellerford. ImIow the
other Richard Wellerford, and below both
'Our darlingt I" These tender mementoes
of his home and children bad been sunt to
cheer his heart in the far distant land to
which the fortunes of war had brought bini ;
and probably he wore tbe tender testimon ials
near his heart when the fntal missile of deal!;
seperated bim from those he loved in his far
off Southern home. Strangers now possess
the tender relic, and he rests beneath the
c'ods of a Northern valley, his grave propably
unmarked and undistinguished from hundreds
around him who met their death on the bloody
field of Gettysburg, and wife and children for
look in vain tbe return of tbe loved husband
and father.
A Co ip prom the Old Block. A son of
"Old Ben Wade," nineteen years of age, and
in the army of the Potomac, was sent some
weeks since as bearer of dispatches to Gen.
Buford. He rode all night, and in the morn
ing a squad of Moseby's cavalry came upon
bis track, and six of them with fresh horses
pursued him. One of them having the fleet
eat horse outstripped the rest in the chase un
der the ambition of having the glory of his
capture. Arriving within striking distance,
be halted young Wade, but not being honored
in the challenge, tbe rebel fired five or six
times at him, when getting near enough, young
Wade whirled abont, shot the rel el through
the head, leaped from bis own jaded horse,
mounted that ef the fallen ioe, and bore on in
triumph with his dispatches.
We have some particulars of Gen. Sully's
expedition iip the Missouri, against the Indi
ans.and the fight atWbite Stone Hills. After
three days' fighting S00 Indians were killed,
and a Urge number wounded, when the re
mainder fled, leaving everything they possess
ed behind, even tbeir squaw and children.
The Indians fought like demons, but the
steady fire of our troops was too much for
toeru. . ,
The Nashville Union says that although
greenbacks have not yet obtained a general
circulation in East Tennessee, and the people
refuse Confederate enrrency, and the Georgia
and South Carolina money, ef which there is
much in circulation, has gone down to twenty
five and filty cents on tbe dollar. The prices
of all kinds of goods tav dropped proportionately.

Washington. Oct. 10.
The Republican extra says the Government
has received dispatches from Gen. Rosecrans
dated Chattanooga, Oct. 9, (yesterday,) and
from other officers on duty at his headquar
ters ; also, dispatches from Nashvil!e,all con
taining reports most encouraging for the Na
tional cause.
The forces under Gen Mitchell overtook the
re Ik I cavalry on the Gth inst., below ShelU.y
villeaud a battle immediately ensued, result
ing in a complete rout i t the enemy,' who did j
not stop for his wounded. Over one hundred
of the enemy were left on the field aud also a
large number of wounded.
General Mitchell sent a force after the fly
ing rebels, who scattered panic stricken, that
teing tho only means of escaping the great
military ccrdon established by General Rose
crans. The railroads torn tip by the raiders have
been repaired, and the telegraph communica
tion is re establinhed. The sacking ot Shell
byville was as cowardly and disgraceful to the
rebel arms as was that of Lawrence by
rebel Quantrell. We had neither torces nor
stores there, beyond those of the inhabitants,
many of them secessionists, and they weie
robbed and their house burned. They were
without protection, hence the disgrace to the
Confederates, who made such an utiuiilitary
onslaught upon the place.
Braggs' bombardment of Chattanooga was a
complete failure, so far as any damage what
ever being done to the defences or to our gal
lant army. A few women and children were
frightened and a few dwellings burned.
Louisville, Ky., October 9.
General Crook, coiniiiaiidi'ii; a brigade of
cavalry, twelve miles beyond Franklin, eNter
daj afternoon, came up with a portion of
Wharton's rebel cavalry. A sharp lighten
sued, resulting in 12-3 rebels being killed and
wounded and 300 prisoners and 4 cannon cap
tured. The rebels were ia full retreat and our
forces pursuing. No casualties o the Feder
als aro repotted. The telegraph to Chattan
ooga has been working since yestt-rday, and
the railroad will be iu running order to Bridge
port to-morrow.
With the exception of Dick M'Cann and 30
of his men, all the rebel prisoners are confined
in Louisville.

Three negroes concerned in the niurdir of

Fortunate Discover. An English lady
was recently walk ing through the streets of
Sydney, Australia, when she di.-covered in a
jeweller's window a necklace which she recou
ped as one stoled from her in England two
years before. She Entered the store; and
seizing the necklace touched a secret spring,
and beheld two curls belonging to her deceas
ed children. She claimed the prize and the
jeweler gave it up, asking as a favor that she
would not mention it but she did, amf led to
the discovery that for many years the thieves
of Paris and London have been in the habit
of sending their stolen goods to Australia.
Mast. reLels, in order to secure the value
ot their slaves property, have quietly seut
their chatties to Cuba ; but this deruiet resort
bas failed them, as, through the instrumental
ity of Mr. Sivage, our able Consul, many of
these slaves have been set free. It is a law
of Spain that any slave brought from the con
tinent or adjoining tales becomes free the
moment he touches the soil of Cuba. It ia
the same in the case of a siave being taken
from Cuba to Spain, notwithttanding the Colo

A CcRiors Theokt of niK Dckation or
