Revival. During the past two weeks
preaching lias been had in the Methodist
church in this plaee, -every evening, and
quite a numlter ot persons have professed
conversion during that time. Much interest
continues to be manifested by those in at
tendance, and it is to be hoped that much
wore good may be done, and that many may
be added to the church.
Magnificent Improvement. The new
building erected by our friend Dr. A. 31.

The Doctor U rather a tSL-ty nan, of which

yet remains to be done about the grounds,

We neglected to notice last week that his
"hoirship" had an opportunity to see his
shadow on the 2d instant which indicates
severe winter weather, according to tradi

changeable. Some snow fell on several
night.', but the warm sun during the day
caused it soon to disappear. On Monday
last it was cold and stormy and freezing, and
a little snow fell.

' ARjIV of I :otomao," Jan. 27 tL, SG-t.
1 Mk. Kpitoii : Sir: As we are lying in a
! slate of masterly inactivity, and th-j chances
are that we will not in.) e very mo;i, ueitce,
n break the monotony ! camp iife a little,
I will endeavor to give jou ave;-y faint idea,
of how we pasour tituo i:i t his once glorious
OM Dominion. It may not prove uninterest
ing to many of your readers, who have no
loved on in "the army to write, them a
sketch of the trials and viciiitudes incident
to camp life, to read a description from an
untutored soldier. So I will endeavor to
portray our mode of getting along here, iu
Dixie. ' '
Our regiment, the GTth Perm a volun
teers, John F. Mauntuii Colonel command
ing,came here after oui-Jdoriou-t advance and
incoi n p re! ie n .sib! (with on t acco m pi i sh i n g
anything j retreat across the Kapidan. We
occupv the quarters kindly built, but not fur
nished, bv our "mutual brothers," the
Johnny Iiebs. We find that the Johnny's,
if they do fight like the Satan and "en
dure unheard of hardships for their beloved
institution," as some of the Peace Copper
head papers tell us, though we (in the vul
gar parlance of the day) "don't see it"
have a feiluw feeling fur their comfort and
convenience, that puts to shame some of our
pampered, well-clad-and-shod, and over-led
mud sills of the poor ignorant north. The
huts are ranged With streets between them,
and everything appertaining to camp life is
in order, o that the camp of a regiment re
minds one of a miniature town. When we
came here, our quarters were in the heart
of a magnificent wood of white oak timber.
Now there is not a vestige of a tree w ithin
one mile of the camp, except the splintered
stumps. As the pioneer axe is a relentless
destroyer and a night in camp with the
mercury considerably below "iVeezo," with a
corresponding fall in a soldiers romantic feed
ings "Woodman spare that tree" falls on the
ear unheeded ; and when Spring arrives not
one of the 'monarch of the forest' will be left
to U 1: the tale of their former grandeur, or
the cau-e of their destruction. You will, per
haps, think me growing 'too poetical Ibr a
soldier living in an S by 10 hut with clapboard
roof, and a chimney bigger, by fur, than
the largest Dutch oven in Clcarik-M count j-.
Pardon ! the feelings of a soldier. We were
human once, ami sad remembrance brings
back thoughts of the past which don't cor
respond with our Hff cabins, and.it grieves
me to see such wholesale destruction among
these old tree. But then, put in the same
balance the lives of thousands of persons
whose souls have been sent to .Eternity by
the same caue, and oh ! how despicable
the simile. If only the poor ignorant and
despised (by the soldiers! ffin'siion Copper
head of the .North. vh;-e cowardice will
not permit, and whose mean and penurious
tout revolts at the idea of the sacrifice of so
much lucre, would permit himself to visit at
least (10 miles of the country along the Or
ange and Alexandria 1'ailroad he necll not
get out oi the cars. tn. the mud-sill Union
soldiers won't let a guerrilla .shoot him he
would see enough in the destruction of prop
erty to make him on his return home, if a
young man, a truly loyal person. Yea, he
would receive the greeting from his old
Dutch father, "Why, Bom T believes dey
make one tarn UiacK lwpuoiiean nut you
down dere" on seeing the thoughtful and
sorrowful and much changed countenance ol
his returned son.
It is very discouraging to us who endure
ail the hardships and dangers of this terrible
rehf'iion. to know th
it the;
e are those who
ti.i-pie and aUu-e us the half-frozen picket-,
and soldiers who are protecting them
and their property from destruction whilst
their avaricious souls are enjoying their com
fortable fireside. Oh, the base ingratitude
of soine of our Northern "friends !"' Yet,
it is really amusing to read some of the let
ters that come from some of these anxious
and Xij,ip'itl,!.-iu,rj Copperhead friends in the
north wondering whether "this cruel war
will not soon be over,'7 and why we veteran
"don't reenlist" as we are "old soldiers
and can stand it better than new ones."
e generally try to keep ourselves protty
clean. yet somes time we paitialiy fail; but
such son ping wont take, out dear Copper
head friends, for it hurts our eyes. We
"e'ant see it" lor the soap. Three hundred
of our regiment have re-enlWted for three
years or during the war. The whole regi
ment would have done so eii-masse bad it
not been for one thing. 31 any say, "If I
re-enlist it will help to fill up the quota ot
our enmity, and it would not look well, in
print, to allow the copperheads to sit at home
and blackguard us for three years more."
3Iy dear 1'riend. this higic has more truth
than poetry in it ; and it is not only tlie
ieeling in our regiment, but in the whole
army. A not very learned but somewhat
eccentric individual once remarked, on see
ing the stars fall, '"Times ain't as they used
to was," and some of our Copperhead
''friends" will find this out too, 1 think, be
fore many months. This is not meant as a
menace, but conies as an advice from one
whose only wish is the welfare of his 'country,
and the happiness of all its citizens, without
regard to party (of course Copperheads are
excepted) creed.
Some of the expressions in this letter may
sound very harsh to some of your readers,
but when we know that we have worse ene
mies at our homes, enjoying themselves in
security and peace, than the open armed foe
ill our front, you certainly cannot censure
me for speaking the truth. Every stddier
in the Army ot the Potomac has more true
respect for the most ragged, abject soldier
in the rebel army, than lie has for the cow
ardly, miserable serf of party, who will Heat
home in security and grumble, w hile the sol
dier and patriot is willing to lay down his
life to keep him in that security. We hope
soon to hear "that the stray sheep have re
turned to the fold." If we could only re
ceive from home the tidings that "all is
well," and Copperheads one of the tu'ns
that were, w hat joy it would intuse into the
heart of the poor soldier. His form would
straiehten his step become more firm
and he would rush to brave and noble deed
with the conviction in his heart that he
does not Leave a thankless and ungrateful
"friend" at home, at least. Oh. think of
it ye Copperheads. Thousands of the young
are heart-willing to throw their lives into the
breach to protett you aud yours, if ye will
but gpeak the word of encouragement.
Shame ! shame ! that such base ingratitude
as is exhibited by some in the north hhould
exist in "the land of the free and the houie
of the brave." I remain with respect,
Your obedient servant, N. n.

' Letter from Philipslrarg, Pa.
PuiLIPsuuru, Pa., Feb. sth, 1?C4.
Leak Jouiojal : This war has produced
more changes, in this part of the gigantic
North, than would have been produced in
times of peace iu twenty-live years. At the
commencement of the war, lumber manufac
tured, was selling for $7 (o s per 31., and
not very ready sale at those figures, excepu
at certain seasons of the year. It now sells
at prices ranging from 81 ti to $20 pier 31.,
owing to the situation of the mill from the
rail road. Coal has advanced to double the
former prices. The black diamonds are be
ing removed from their beds at the rate of
many tons per day. This, how ever, is but
a speck on the horizon, to what it will le
when the coal operators get rightly under
way. There is but one set of mines in any
thing like full operation the mines at
Powelton. The farmer of these farms in
old Decatur, that kill-decrs used to have to
carry a knapsack over, are doing a tilling
thing for the repletion of their cherished ia
stitution, the "root of all evil." Tisstrango
too, passing strange, ' w hat a rapacity they
have for Father Abraham's greenbacks, and
yet to hear some of them give vent to their
pent up Democratic par-t ee grief, one would
suppose they would a.s soon, and with more
propriety, handle a copperhead, than one ol
those same greenbacks.
The farmer, take him all in all, is adverse
to the law "Love thy neighbor as thyself."
He never regrets to hear ot prices going up,
when he has' anything to sell, but he deep
ly, sorrowfully, laments the upward tenden
ty of the article's he must purchase, and
curtails to a fearful tension, the grocery ex
penses of his household. They are doing a
sweeping business now selling their hay wild
grass, briars, young bushes 4 inches at the
but, and dry pine stump roots suita ble for cul
inary purposes, included at the pioderate
sum of ioO ; rye straw, prospective, at 50
ets per bundle, 2S straws to comprise a bun
dle ; butter ad uiiijiitinn ets, and eggs out
of reach of cents, f Jut the farmer is as pleas
ant a .Miss Clementine Shoddy was at .the
"Kussian Pall." The lord of the soil as
sumes a decidedly different .phiz, though,
when he pays his blacksmith, wheelright or
grocer the "advance they ask. ' Then is the
time to tell where his "pulsating organ is lo
cated. If for the welfare of bis country,
the restoration of the Union, anel for .sus
taining the administration, in putting down
this rebellion, then you may rest as-ureel
that his heart is not out of its place and he
will pay the advance without a murmur;
but if he goes on to expound the Constitu
tion, the habeas corpus act, the Emancipa
tion pioclamai ion (a t itter piil) andiheaboli
tionists, then you may bet vonr existence,
and otl'er, safeiy, 1H) to t, that his heart is
in that defunct institution once known by
the name of Democratic -par-roe, and he
will howl at the high price. Happily for
the country, though, there, are not. many of
the farmers but w hat see the rebellion in the
right light, and will do all they can to help
the authorities put it down. Once in a
while one of the old war horses of democra
cy comes along with the new addition. CojT
perheadism. added to his text ; but the ad
dition has so completely taken possession of
the old stager, thst there is not a vestig.? of
the old principle 'left, except the prejudice
of party.

, Like this "Voting Xester ' of Bei-caria.
And is it possible that this champion of
C'opperheadism has gone to his hole that
with bis last C'll'u.-ioir on this "cruel war" he
is going to wind up his snakeship entire.
No wonder the Ne.ster "inaik" of the Bec
caria nest did nt like'to sound the solemn
km-.il ot the dead snaiks. Oh ! that he had
my "supernatural, ink-corroded pen." to
write bis valedictory. But I am happy to
know that he has sung his last ieuium so
faithfully correct. Never since the era of
Copperheads was inaugurated, bus there
been a more truthful article penned, than
the letter from this craliaut stiaik oi the - st
ult. ibereitis laid down as plain as Jeff
Davis it Co. could possibly desire. I low
will the last amalgamation of the copper
head dynasty in Congress on the 4th int. suit
the virus of "Young Nester?" Wake up
yo snaiks. and hear the death knell of Cop
perheadisin. Why stir up the dusty rec
ords, books, and pamphlets ofOt her days.
Now is the time now is the hour. Strike
at the present and not fret and f iam for
hours searching " Helper" for a quotation to
help out your siiaikship, with a promulga
tion of your virus. Take a elose of Frank
Blair and the Woods's, the radicals and cop
perheads uniting to vote down the Union
delegations. I have always contended that
there was: no difference between a copper
head and a radical. See the boat how it
glides down the stream now a radical at
the helm, copperheads pulling the oars.
' 'Young Ncster" you would make a capi
tal bows-man for that craft. However, if
you do go and of course you will, tor that
is the road all copperheads that are impreg
nated with the virus as you are must trav
el. Do not by any means forget to take a
copy of Helper with you it will serve you
a jrood iuriose. And if you should bap-
pen to get in as much of a hurry while let- J
ting on your gas, as you aid when your gas
ometer was expanding on your valedictory,
and your thoughts become blended and cou
fused, as you say they did, then, turn to
Helped and it will help you out.
