MILITARY DAMAGE.3.—The several acts of '
Assemblty of our State; the various abortive
efforts by both. State and National officers,
and the action of our ,courts. relative to the
military claims in the border c'otirities,have
confused many of otir people so,rn uch that
they statrcely..know when or bow to proceed.
A , the adjustment of these claims seems now
about to take a definite- shape, we will give
a history of the different legislation and other
movements relating to their settlement for
the satisfaction of our readers.
The first losses sustained by our citizens in ,
Alto war were by the occupation of lands and
appropriation of properjy by Gen. Patterson
in Arty and June, 1861. lie took possession
of qtylt,lunds and tenernmts as he needed for
th • purposes of his army and movements,
and settled none whatever—Tot even giving
so much as a certificate therefor. A large
pr.4portion of the lands on the line between
Litis, and the • Maryland . boider, -- laking in
Gre,:neirstle, and covering one of the richest
portions of our - county. was occupied, and
coy:, fences and much other. property en-
•ly deatro,yed, Some farmtrs had their
farms utterly desolatea. Gen. Patterson:
r and his army were regularly in the United-,,
States service, and the elairns for losses aris-3
f-om his o"cupation and march, shout<
bo paid by the United States. As yet, how-:
eves, no provision has boon made for settle-
An net of the Legislature passed in,
18. , provided. that these claims' might be:
dicated by the Courts of Common Pleas
appomting appraisers, on petition of claim
ant,. and confirming their reports of dama
ge- when returned to the court. Most of
Aln•-e,claims were thus adjusted and return
ed zo the Governor , of the State, who trans
nacted them to the last Logislature, but no
ap;,ropiiation was made and they cannot by
paid until flume is fartherl..gislation. It is
probable that, as the ..Nttiunal authorities
hay t not,settled these , elahns, the State will
pro% .de fur them at the next session,, and in
strtwt the Goyernor to make claim for th4m
in a•tiuctiniz nes.ounts between the State and
gall :al government.
n"xt of claim: arise from the
nw-•nry impt•Pssment h o rses, s a ddles,
wag n- in September. 1562, When Long-

enem . ; at our doors aid our people helpless
,to d .end th••nist•ivcs, and others were re
tub in Oh, service of the United States.,
Most of this property was taken by the order
of th Go' "r rn• • aithlaigh the United Stet&
wain whi•n ile , y took' command, confirm
ed • acts ,of the Exeeutive and his subor
dine, •and continued the impressment of
prop, So the whole net became the'work
. of th • geueralyernment, under Maj. Gen.
Reyii wis,.one or t inDA pru4nt and faith
-fieors then in the service. Before thi,
ntec-Itg of the last legislature Gov. Curtin
instructed Mears Daniel O. Gehr and Sam
uel lteisher to hear all the claiiaants and re- I
port to him the amount due to each. They
did so, and the report was submitted to th,.
legislature, but no appropriation was made,
and they therefore remain unsettled. A liki.
commis:4on consisting of W. IL McDowell
and G: It. Burnett was appointed by the Gov
ernor to adjust damages to lands and crops,
and-a similar report was made thereon.
The nest losses - to which our people were
subjeetc.d resulted from the famous- Stuart
raid in October, 1862. He entered the bowl
, ty south, of Mercersburg, passed through
that place, Itridgeport, St. Thomas, Chain
' bersburg; Fayetteville, Greeewood, this
county, and Cushtown, Fairfield, Emmitts
burg and other points in Adams county, and
Odic with 'him 750 horses, and probably
$2.0,000 worth of itores of various , kinds.—
These claims will amount to probahly $BO,OOO
or*S . lo - 0;b00, and it - is no 6 w well ascertained
that the general government cannot pay , :
then. • The State therefore doubtless will
pay them by direction of the next legisla
ture The last legislature by the act of 22d
April 1868, directed the Court of Dauphin
county to appoint appraisers to ascertain
. tbese damages,• and report the same to that
court for confirmation. The court appointed,
Messrs A. O. Heister, Jacob Weidle and
James Worrell, aid tfleyere now in session
la, this place hearing this class of claims, and
all cltdmants should give; proMpt attention
tothe matter. - •
The next demand upon t 1 people of -the
border resulted from th'emilitia called out
by the Governor todefend agaihSt rebel in
vasion. When the call was made the peoplo
responded promptly, and were thrown upon
the border almost without organization, en
tirely without discipline, often without am,
pia rations - anti shelter; and it was but na
tural that the citizens should„aUffer.
ry.companies had to forage for themselves,
and their green quarter-masters gave imper
fect certificates, .while a brood of thieves
availed-themselves of the conilision incident
to a rnw and imperfectly equipped and ap
p)inted army, to plunder largely in the name
or pretended -authority of- army officials.
T:teAe - elisims are embraced in the act c;f-.22d -
Apr 4 - last, and will be adjusted by the ap
praisers now in session after the older claims
have been passed upon. The act in question
directsi the appraisers "to exarhineand 'aseer;
fain the losses and damages sustained by cit
izens of the Commonwealth,by reason of
occupancy of and - trespass upon -their lan&
by my part - of the militia force r Whieh was
c d sl led into active service in the month' of
&ptembef , , A. D. 3862." Due notice will
beliven by the appraisers ..when they are
prepared t! consider this class of elaims.
The next class of claims arise from the
purchase t f horses: forage.-&e., by officer.,
atailed.frorn Gen. lirelellan's array, in the •
di of 1862, after the battle of Antietam.
'he army was in great -need
,efl horses and
nvg,eland men seem tolaveheen sent out
vithout being competent . for the business ;
or many of them gave imperfect vouchers
and thus rendered it impossible for quarter
to .settle thm.. Gen.lCoucli's late :
order, referred. to in our last issue, was in
to cover these claims. They cannot
be paid until Congress legislates on the sub
feet ; but it is confidently expected that it
will be done during the' next session. As'
these are legitimate claims ag inst the gen
eral government, .the State has taken .no,
steps for their adjudication, and will not un
less it should become clearlyapparent that
the National authorities refuiseto do so.
The foregoing claims are alll that were
created before the meeting of the last Legis
lature. Since then'several classes havebeen
added, for which no provision has yet been
' made In any quarter. In JUne last Gen.
Jenkins raided the county rnOst effectually,
particularly that portion South of the turn
dike, and took away with hin a large quan
tity of horses, cattle,
.wagonS, forage, &c. He was followed by Lee's entire army,- who
occupied the Cumberland Valley nearly to
the Susquehanna, and afterwards entered
Adams - county and remained until Gen.
Meade gave him rather an in perativenotice
to quit at Gettysburg. The Claims for pro
perty 'taken or destroyed by rebels are not
within the scope of settlemen by the genera'
government, and provision should be mad •
by the State for their paymerit, and we dont , -
not that the next Legislature will do so.
• The next and last demandlupon our peo
ple was by the militia in July last.. They
had been called out hastily, organized -ha ,
perfectly at Harrisburg for the defence (
the Capitol, and after the battle of Getty-
burg, they were thrown , forard by Genert4
Couch with all possible despatch to Fends ,
aid to Meade at Williatnsport. The road
were almost impassible, andiwith his limit( ,
transportation, 'Gen. Couch !was utterly un
able. to ' supply his ml He wise!,
pushed them forward, and is (1(

citizens liberally shared sty provii
ions with the troops; in. to a consid

tiop of property. As th&se troops Wei
sworn into the State servic4 and' not undo!
the orders of the general gOvernment, then
claims will be provided for by the legislatm •
of this State.
—We have made this statement in det:.
so that the people of the county may under
stand the different charac4r of the variot
classes of claims. We bslieve that they wi
be. settled eventually as indicated, in this at •

a long time by the'ownens of cows. Durin

hundreds of acres of corn, wheat and cloy'
were thrown open, which at the it wt.

and scores of town COWS; were turned .
by their owners, and allimed to roam an I
plunder unrestrained. ( [ We hardly knot ,

than as malicious and diabolical- in the ex

And yet amongst these cows were those
r...spectable citizens, andl members of church

more than half of Mr. liankin's farm, part

Joseph Clark, Henry Shepler and others.
But apart from the destruetton of growinr
crops at this particular titne . , the running Cr!
COWS at large in the borough is a nuisance
which ought not to be tolerated at any time.
It inflicts an annoyance and loss upon the
persons who live in the suburbs of The town
which is insupportable. If a gate is acciden

ready to pounce upon garden; or destroy
young fruit trees. And several of these half

Borough directing the High Constable to
take jip these cows and sell them at public
auction, and a further ordinance subjecting
said,officer to a tine of $lO,OO .for ne
41ecting or refusing to enforce any ordinanch
