Divs.--We have never witnessed
More wide-spread and intense anxiety than was
Manifested in Chambersbuig from 'Thursday
last until. Sunday evening. It Was announced
Thursday morning, that General Grant had
Moved on 'l`nesday night and had crossed the
*Piau without serious opposition. The gen
- 11111 conviction that Lee was stronger than ever
before and Would dealsflees conte st the advance
or Grant a t some point,not far from the.Rapi
do; and the announcement that Gen. Grant
had practically severed his lines with Washing
, teMby sending back his railroad stock and rail
, road bridges over the Rappahannock, thus Tire
, paring only for advance and leaving his lines - Of
retreat out of the question, combined to make
the people nervously anxious to hear from the
• conflict .11 - en hurried to the bulletin board's'
w i t h rap id 'stops, and when meagre and most
st ;Satisfactory dispatches only were found, would
",- 'tarry to speculate with their equally excited
neighbors us to the probable movement and the
of the battle. The fact that all seemed to
be at stake in the campaign just commenced,
made sincere and loyal hearts sad with the ter
' -eibie_uncertainty, and business was either ne
' 'chided or followed mechanically and listlessly
between visits to th - e bulletin boards.
• 'on Friday morning the ilispatebes told that
Aliii•feaVful conflict had commenced. ,It was
'announced that Longstreet and Hancock had
tiOen'engaged, and that Warren and Ewell had
coined as the battle 'progressed ; but beyond
, stating that the battle raged furiously for two
r and a half, and that the loss was heavy
on both sides, no intimation of victory on either
,side was given. Fragments of news dropped
'-••• from the wires through the day, giving a con-,
firmed account of the progressa eta battle and
' stating that Butler had moved up the Peninsu
la ; but farther• than that the most sanguinary
battle of the war Was in progreas, the lightning
did not venture to explain. The throng of
'Thursday was swelled in numbers and in inten
ef anxiety, and all seemed absorbed with
the one great issue---the safety of the Republic.
_ BuSiness men, 'Mechanics, laborers,—all condi
tions, indeed from the most opulent to the most
humble, of both' sexes; seemed to have but one
thought, one care—the success of Gen. Grant.
Here and there might have been seen one who
paned the anxious multitude and glanced indif
`ferently at the bulletins—one who might have.
`gone Borrowing - had - victory been announced for
the Union army and its holy cause ;"•bat they
were exceptions to the rule.
On Saturday-the telegraph was still reticent
as to the fate of the ..flrmy of the. Potomac.
Sensation reports .. frorre‘'' correspondents of-the
New York press were seized by the operators
occasionally ; but they were full of speculations
on the side of victory, without giving faets—the
only - commodity - the people wanted. Weary
. and' impatient our citizens still clustered around
• the bulletins, and the delay in getting reliable
news sank deep into every faithful heart. In
the afternoon a dispatch' 'came stating that the
battle-field and the dead and wended of the
enemy were: within our lines, and that - Lee had'
probably fallen back; but it was unofficial, and
tie term i‘probablY", indicated that the author
[ - had to draw upon his imagination somewhat at
least for his statement. The fact that no offi
cial news came from. Gen. Grant, justified the
I. doubt that there could be news of a triumph
,lbrough private channels before the govern
meat would hdve it officially; and night came
without any definite information as to the fate
' Sunday morningeametoobrightand lovely to
record a harvest of death The birds sang
'sweetly, and the,bursting buds and green fields
;gave hopeful' promise of beauty and plenty.
The church bells called the peopleto the house
of 'God; but they went
_with sluggish step,
hoping to bear, -air they passed along making
arious inquiry of each other, from the fresh
sacrifice demanded by treason. About eleven
o'clock a private dispatch came to this journal
'announced that Gen. Hays had fallen-, and that
'ruiners• ftom Washington were conflicting and
unreliable. • No light was thrown upon the issue
of the straggle fraught, it might be, withthe fate
of a Nation. The people gathered on the cor
_and fearful forebodings of disaster were
'traced' upon every face. The fact that 'no
definite information was had 'from the army
since five o'clock on the melting of Friday,
tiatinilfiartiased the gravest fears as to the
result. But, in the afternoon the clouds were
'mensumbly. dispelled. A general dispatch was
, received stating that Gen- Grant hid driven the
rebels after a-terrible engagement; had 13,000
of Aeir deiad and wounded in his hands, and
that tee was retreating and Grant pursuing.
The same-dispatch announced that Geu. Butler
was moving upon Richmond with 50,000 men
from City'Point, and that hews within sixteen
miles of the rebel capital. Soon after a private
dispatch to the 'REPOSITORY gave the same in
: formation as official, and 'later still a dispatch
from Gov. Curtin to the chief editor confirmed
"',-the cheering news, and added that "-all leelss
Well." *rue to his ceaseless devotion to the

Gbssir WITH , Ott FittExos.- 7 We are to
have a Fair for the benefit of the "Christian
Commission." It is not intended to he a rival
of the New York Fair that bas just closed, nor
yet of the Philadelphia Fair to come- off next .
month, but it is to be a thing " for Cham
beriburg. We-hope to show our legislators
whether we are loyal or not, notwithstanding
our losses by the rebels and militia ;- 'whether
we are willing or not to contribute our mite and
might to help along Uncle Samuel. However,
it is beat not to say aught of the Fair yet, for it
is not fair to talk of a Fair or any other affair
in preparation. So forthe present we say fare
well to the Fair; -with our best wishes that it
may prove a success, and that all parts of the
county will give it their hearty aid and co-oper
, Our citizen:soldiery who had'been called out
in the summer of 186., and who have enrolled
their names high in the niche of Fame, as well
as on the pay roils of their grateful country,
were paid off last week, some for their exhaust
ing services of two -weeks, and others of four.
It was a glorious sight to see the battle-scarred
(the printer will please not make it " bottle
scarred," oy "battle-cared,") veterans maro,
up to the desk in Indian file, brewn tisterties,
war-worn and weary. Notwithstanding the time
that. has elapsed' since they shouldered their
trusty muskets, which were carefully hidden
and preserved to their confiding government,
when Mr. Stuart arrived at this place from the
sunny South, the noble army of martyrs, who
had so freely offered themselves up upon their
country's altar,' came forward as ono man,
shoulder to shoulder, all together." It was a
proud day for Chambersburg. We confs's to
a slight disappointment in not seeing the wound.

that we hail known the glory and emolument
in store for the yeomen of Pennsylvania, and
the happy issue of their toil ; how readily, how
cheerfully, how patriotically would we' have
turned out ri et armis to protect the wives and
daughters of Chamberidnirg in particular, and
of the Cumberland - Valley in general! ;What a
satisfaction it -must now be to "the brave ",
that they cannot now " sink to rest," bUt are en
rolled and pledged to turn out - at the first boom off'
the invader's cannon. We have made up out
mind, should we ever be 'forced to watch for a
burglar, to ask Gov. Curtin to pay us for mar
valuable time and services expended in guarding
our ouin property. •
, Our fields are green.; the peach trees are in ,
bloom; leaves are sprouting rapidly; lettuce and
onions, and rhubarb are vegetating briskly ; the
singing birds have eome f the frogs have opened
their concert saloons, and little boys and girls
affect the open air. In short, not to put too fine
a point on it, spring has come with'its coughs
and colds, and sneezings; its sunshine and show
ers. Womankind. - and nature rejoice, the one
in her freedom from the bonds of winter, the
other in their new spring bonnets. We wish
well to theinboth Lbut sins, winter will return,
and new bonnets will wear out, get old and
become dishonored: ,
To the young lady who enquired of us the
meaning of "Vale, rate, /ovum vale," we reply
"Veil, veil, a long veil." In the palmy days of
ancient Rome, the ladies attached great impor
tance to long veils, particularly at funerals ; the
length of the veil indicating the degree of grief
felt for the departed one.
Have our ladies heard of the Union League
started by the ladies of Washington, of which
they expect to form branches all over the United
States. The object' of the League is to dis
courage extravagance of all kinds ,but particular
ly with reference to foreign manufactures, which
d4dete the country of its gold, and make us as
a nation poorer and poorer each day. We long
to have a branch, yea even a twig will be wel
come, in this town ; and we trust our darlings
will go the whole—figure, and dress soeconom
that no rival town can compete with
them. Let us have no carpets, not even of rag,
newspaper -blinds, bandies of straW for door
mats, kill all our dogs and cats, substitute
benches for sofas, and stools for chairs. Why can
we not eat with our fingers, use bunks instead of
beds; dispense with 'soap and brooms and other
_look hard into our coffee instead
sweetening it with sugar f or perhaps get a swe e!
heart to stir it digits paio, or indeed try dande
lion; burnt rags, coal dust, liquorice browned
potato-skins as a mike shift?. Ladies, with re
gard to dress you might' economi4ez, ninety per
cent., and still be well dressed—you have all
heard of "beauty unadorned" etc. Just make,
up your minds to come down (or 1q) to it, and
the worst will be over Supposejome bad lit;
tle boy should laugh at your first appearance on
the street without hoops or skirts, let him
laugh. Five yards of calico is thousands for u.
frock ; and _(); :straw hat worth twenty-five
cents will make you look charming. Ne've:
mind veils, and gloves, and
' ribbons, and jew
lery. Try your energies on making your Own,
and : your childrcns' clothes. Knit your own
stockings, wear good stout bootS, eschew all
sorts of , fripperies, throw lace to the dogs (be
fore they are all killed,) turn your cashmere
shawls into coverlits, make trousers (for your
husbands) out of your 'cloth mantles, pull to
pieces your bonnets to dress' up your babies'
dolls. How can any woman, who witnessed
the superhuman labors, the toil and sweat and
appetites of tifeir sons and brothers and hus
bands during their service in the militia'ln the
summer of: '62, for Which, they were paid each
the paltry sum of eight dollars -and . eighty
ants—bow can any such vvoman;viith a scut
in her body spend a penny in personal adorn
Seriously we hope . the League will succeed.
We wish our ladies would• - economiie, and we
hoi)e.. the men will show them the example, for
our salvailon as a nation depends. upon the

THE LA - DlEs'-FAM.—At a meeting 'of the la
dies 4Chanibersburg, interested In the Chris
tian Commission (which -has for its object The
supply of materials for the sick and wounded
of our army, more especially after a battle) it
was unanimously agreed to hold a fair on.the
13th of June, for the purpose of raising funds
towards the benevolent association above men
tioned'. It is thought advisable to interest the
people of Franklin county in this laudable en
terprise, so that a united effort on the part of
the citizens of one of the richest and most pop
ulous counties in the State may be successful
and worthy of the cause and the people. In
furtherance of this object, it is suggested, that
the prominent ladies of the large towns ofWay
nesboro, Greencastle, Mercersburg, London,
Orrstown and Fannettsburg, with all the vil
lages of thd county, should confer among them..
selves and act with our citizens in this under;
taking. Each of these places could he sepa
rately represented at the fair and have their
own table, superintended by a committee from
amongst themselves. Mrs. General Couch is
President of the ladies association in this place,
Mrs. William McLellan 'Vice President Icad
Miss. Mary McCulloh Secretary, from whom
any information desired, can be had by addres
sing her. We are all interested in this Move
meat, hundreds of our young men, our fathers,
husbands and brothers are girding on their
swords for the battle,,before whose significance
the past` withers into forgetfulness. No human
sagacity can tell whqt or where the blow may
be struck, but we Ail know that in that fatal
field, many a womanly form in our midst, will
be widowed and broken hearted, the • refluent
tide of war may bring the thunder of artillery
in our very midst, rind- our fields 'may be crim
soned with the blood of our brothers. It is the'
part of wisdom to prepare now, to alleviate the
pain and Steering of the 'wounded. In this
Gospel of Charity the ministry is given unto'wo
man, for many reasons ; she may not go in the
field, but what, more cheering - thought eeuld
sooth-tbe brow of pain, than to no that ,a
mother, wife or sister's hand had sent these
comforts to the•stricken soldier. But I merely
meant to suggest the plan of united action, all
over our county, to the ladies, knowing full well,
that the fair hands, that roused them into the
field, will also alleviate their sufferings.
THE BOROUGH E L ECT /ON .—The aonual_
election fur Borough Officers took place on
Moriday of last week. . The Republican ticket
was the only one iu the field, our Democratic

William Wallace, John Dcebler and Samuel '

At a meeting' of the new Council, Thomas L.
Fletcher, Esq., was chosen as, Counsel and

will be enforced, and that a due regard will be
had for the cleanliness and health of the town.
