The foregoing statement` has not Om shadow of truth.
I paid no such of money to ransom thy property, nor did
any one for me; and although my loss is scarcely less than
$50430, not one dollar of tribute would hare been paid to

Capt. Smith, theworthy,son or a noble Virginia
sire, now Governor of whattreason hasleft of the
Old Dominion, gave his mime And. parentage at
" Norland," and also at Dev..Tarnei I% Kennedy's.
It Seems that the of ministers were not

Mr. Kennedy:

The order was liastily written With -lead:Ten

livering Mrs. M'Clure's pitcher to Mrs. Kennedy,
and declaring by'aldy of justification of his con
duct, that his father's house had 'been bnrned'by
our troops—a statement he knew ;to' be false.
Fiendish rind relentless as Were, breatusland
and most of his command, there were notable exl
eeptions - who bravely maintained the humanifiei
of war in the midst of the infuriated free-booters
who were plying the torch and securing Plunder.
Surgeon Budd was conversing with several citi
zens when the demand for tribute was made;and.
he assured all present that the rebel cominandel
would not barn Chambersburg. In the midst of
his assuranees, the flames burst forth almost
simultaneously in every part of the,town: When'
he, saw the fire hreak out, he' wept like a child;
and publicly denounCed the atrocities of his com
mander. Hp took no part in' it whatever, safe
to aid some unfortunate ones in escaping from the
flames. Capt. Baxter, formerly of Baltinoret i l
peremptorily refused to participate in_the burning;
but aided many people to get some defiling and,
other articles out of the houses. He asked a eit- -
izen As a special favor to write to his friends in
Baltimore and acquit him of the - hellish work.'
Surgeon Richardson, 'another Baltinaorean, gave
his hleie to a lady to get some articles out of the .
burning town, and publicly deplored the sad work
of 3,l'Crinsland. When asked who his ceatmand
log officer was, he , answered—el - Madam, I am
ashamed to say that Gem APCoMiland is my com
mander!" Capt. Watts manfully surd all of
Second street south" of Queen, and with his ciim
anand aided to arrest the flames. Ile said that
he would lose his . commission rather than barn
out defenceicas people, and other officers and a
number of privates displayed every possible evi
&nice of their huriaanity. One 'vs - hole company
was keptiby its Captain--:name unknown—from
burning and pillaging,•and the South-eastern por
tion of Chain bersburg stands to-day solely because
au officer detailed there kept his men employed
in aiding people out of their burning hcnises, And
did not apply the torch at all. 'Alter the rebels'
had left, the following note was Miceived by. Rev.
S..Niccolls, Presbyterian 'Pastor, written on an
envelope with a pencil:
mr.v. Mn. btu:coils': Please write my father and give
Lim my love. Tell hire, too, as Wm Shoemaker stall tell
you, that I was roast otrentamaly opposed to the burning ,
of the tury-n. ' B. B. BLAIR,
Chaplain and Son ofTlgss. P- Blair, Shippensburg, Pa..
That there was a mast formidable opposition to
burning the town, in McCausland's command was
manifested in various ways- In the morning be
fore daylight, when:McCausland was at Greena
walt's on the turnpike west of Chambersburg, a
most boisterous council was held there at which
there were earnest protestiftbado, to McCausland
against- burning anything but 'public, property.
McCausland was greatly incensed at some Of his
ofwerS, and threatened them with Most summary
-vengeanct , if they refused to obey orders. Many,
hmi, ever, did openly disnbey and, went even so
far as to give the utmost publicity to their
Capt. Fitzhugh exhibited to J. W. Douglas,
Esq., an Attorney of this place, ii written 'order
with the name of Jubal A. Early to it, directing
that Chambersburg should be burned in retalia
tion for the burning ofisix houses in Virginia by
Hunter. The burning of Chatiabersburg was,
therefore by order of one of the Corps Com
inanders of Gen. Lee's army, instead of the work
of ft guerilla chief,:thus placing the responsibility
squarely upon the shoulders' of, Gen, Lee. We
have in support of this the statement of Rev. Mr.
Edwards, Episcopal clergyman of Hagerstown,
who was taken as a hostage after Chambetsburg
bad been destroyed. •He was brought to Gen.
O.arly'S'Headquarters at Williamsport; ana there
Oaroled to effect his exchange. Gen. Early , there ,
informed him that he.haddirentelKitambersburg
to be burned. in retaliation -for Ao_tipstruction of
property iii Virginia - by Giant, - Meade - id& Hun
ter, .and that the account wai,,.now:,aquged.
There may be two parties to the auditing of that
A number of the thieves who participated in
burning Chamberslumg, were soot suddenly to
their last account. An officer, whose payers
identify him as Major Bowen, Bth Virginia cavalry,
Was conspicuous for his brutality and robberies.
Be got too tar south of the firing parties to be.
covered by them, and M his desire to glut his
thieving propensities', he was isolatcd. 'He was
raptured by several citizens, in fAe midst of his
brutal work, and was dispatefied promptly.--
When he. was &eclat and slightly wounded, he
took refuge in the burning cellar of one - of the
houses, and there with the intense
-heat blistering
him, he begged theuila spare his life; :but it Wass
in vain. Half the towa was still burning, and it
was taxing humanity rather too reach to save ,a

He was about five feet five, inches in Imighth,
Wry stoutly built, with sandy hair, goatee and

to 40 years of age.
' Two men entered the Drug Store of Mr.' Mil

:they had fired the store. Mr. Milkr was stand
