the - Valley. tie had been sent to . lead ad
vancelorce there,in 'consequence of his famil
iarity with the country and his intrepid dash and
gallantry as a commander. He returned im-
"mediately after Sigel's disaster beyond New
)Niatitet,„and went at once to join his brave
command. The regiment was then encamped
near the Long Bridge on the' .Virginia side.
Gin. Grant's sanguinary battles of the Wilder
ness and Po had just been fonght," and he was
pushing his columns beyond the North Anna.
The 'necessity for infantry reinforcements was
great, and the 21st received orders to dismount,
turn over horses and equipments, shoulder
muskets and march at once to the front as in.
Autry. It was a ° hard trial; but they obeyed
- Without a. mnrmur, and on the 2nd of June they
were in front
_of Lee's army on the Peuinsula,
- without it day for, infantry drill; and nothing to
rely upon for discipline in action but their own
, heroism and
-that of their officers. Nobly did
they encounter P,the foe. When they entered
the fight—the particulars of which are given by
an intelligent correspondent in another column
'-their gallantry excited the admiration of every
Veteiatt , field officer Who witnessed their order
and • dauntless courage. Their noble leader,
Col Wm. H. Hbyd, fell in the first engagement,
painfully wounded, and with him fell over fifty
of his command. He was compelled to leave
them, and is now at home restless in his anxiety
to appear once more at the head of his regiment.
In the action of June 2nd and. 3d there were 8 ,
~ killed and 44 wounded; and in the engagements
of the ,17th, 18th and 19th there were 11 killed
and 79 wounded. We are indebted to Sergt.

FRotsi LIBBY PRisoN.—Mr. Peter Bowers,
lotthis place, a member of Co. A, 13th Penna.
Cavalry, was captured by Moseby and his gang
, Itide; on ascent near Bristow Station, on the
; , ieth:day of
, - March last. Moseby treated the
rpOioneroiVell., fiat promptly relieved them of
NOlithe*lreOnbacks'and other valuableis..Ahey
were sent to Libby - PriSon, Richmond; where
he was confined for sixty days. His descrip
tion of the sufferings,of our prisoners is appal
link. - During the whole time Mr. Bowers was
in Libby, he never received meat but once, and
that was in vve,3k soap. The regular daily - titre
was one "corn dodger," weighing less than one
pound, for each man, and it was usually deliv
ered about ten o'clock in the morning. No cof
fee, sugar, meats or vegetables of any kind were
ever given the pristmers. The corn bread was
made of coarse, untmlted corn, and mixed with
water— r no salt in it at all; and it was ,entirely
insufficient in quantity, and most unwholesome.
The prisoners gradually weaker e 3 until they
would become Unable to stand or walk about
in the room, and almoSt every morning one or
more would be found dead on the floor—a vic
tim to the barbarity -of our rebel - foes. Mr.
Borers became so weak and emaciated that he
could not move about, and he was transferred
to the hospital. There he was 'starved worse
if possible than in prison. He was there al
lowed a very small quantity of meat—less than
one ounce per day, and doubtless would have
died but for his fortune in being paroled on the
Bth of May, when he was delivered within our
lines on the Peninsula. Since then be ens re
covered his health, and is now quite well-again.
He says that the strictest vigilance and most
revolting brutality was practiced upon the pris
oners. '''phey.were - not allowed to look out of
the windows.' , If they did the guard would fire
on them: One Pennsylvania soldier; whose
name he did not leapi, was looking out of the
window one morning us he was eating his mis
erable meal, and he was shot in the head and
instantly killed. The dead prisoners were ta
ken into what was called the " dead room " as
soon as they died, and there they were often
allowed to remain for several days, in full view
of the other prisoners. They represented that
coffins and teams could not be had to bury them
as fast as they died. The 'bodies of the dead
.were always stripped entirely naked before bu
rial, antthe clothing appropriated 1)31 the reb
els. Mr.. Bowers says he has Seen a number of
corpses lying in the dead-house in an advanced
stage of decomposition. Indeed ,it seems im
possible to exaggerate .the ,:p f o t,trocities practiced
by our barbarous foes upon our brave prisoners.
A fearful reckoning must be. 4 store fir such
Zrimes against humanity.

had, when they started, two two-horse wagons

were then compelled to load up, their effects and

BODY Foumi—The Bedford /aq4irer says ,
that the body of Mr. Charles Pencyl, whose dis
appearance we noticed on the Bth of April last,
was found on Sunday morning last, by George'
Waltman - of Friends, Cove. , Mr. N'Valtman,
with a little son, was. in the woods near Chas.
Harelerode's, at the foot of • Dunning's moon
looking for his cows. The lad saw a hat,
and said to his flither, "Here is a soldier's hat,"
and looking for the letters and figures that Should
designate the company and regiiiient. The
father, perceiving a band of crape around the
hat, said, "This is Pencyl's hat." Soon a boot

the hat on a bush, and went for•his neighbors,

body appeared to have been devoured by dogs

pocket containing nine dolla;rs and ninety cents
and two or three notes. It appears that he had
only about twelve dollars - with him when he left
home. A coroner's inguesit was held on Stinday,
the finding of which is given below. The sus

have been entirely removed by the searching
examination of the Jury. He evidently perish
