Gossip wtTll OCR FRIENDS.—WeII, we have
been once . , more to old C—g, and found her
still prostrate. We returned to vote, and we did
vote. We exercised the privilege (glorious as it
is culled) of the election franchise or a Citizen of
the 'Linked States, though we can hardly be called
"n taxilble," fur as our friend Dobbs Would say:
"what in the will they tax 7" We confess
to a sliad feeling of indignationicto have come
2.50 miles' to vote in a little,B x 10 shaatz, instead
of the old Court Houge with Dr. Franklin on top
of the cupola, guiding the lightning ; but what was
a body to do, you know; :and then i f they had
sworn as, how were we to "uplift our right hand
in a biw crimson like that, particularly if we had
been as tull as Saul I It was a pleasure to meet
old triedds, all of whom may God bless w ith health,
wealth, wisdom and a Union President! We
were glad to be in C, and sorry to leave; and
now, in the busy city of N. Y., our heart is in the
Cumberland Valley, where we hope our body will
one day lie.
,Thinking of home last night, a poetic fit seized
us, and we ground out (a witty man might eall it
"ground and lofty tumbling") the following trans
lation from the French of 3.lruGbm, which we
will call {though' he did'nt )
I saw a gay swallow return in the spring,
A rut bitterly thonght of the maid once so kind ;
I wistfully gazed at the ulnutnaii, old,
That marked the bright year when we loved with one
My youth la not dead, nor pour memory tont,
My heart flutter yet at the sound of your name,
Your knock at my door would be answered with joy
Retttreh - faithless N 4 arie. yeall:find me the same
Oar dear little chamber; the wine cup we shared,
(The lion'. share yours,) the old friends of our love
Taxon , off their rad incoming to welcome you bark
O 6 come, um expect yeii, my own truant dove
You'll dun the white robe, you were wont oft to wear
We'll take the old walks we have trodden before,
Bil:math the old trees you'lldrink with me thcin,
Anti sing tome sweetly your songs as of-yore.
One bright sunny morn brought the wanderer home;
Hisr,Huralval ended, she thought she was free
To fly to my heart, but—we missed the old thrill:
Herself sadly_rhanged said the change woe in me
Adored one, adieu. with thy bur hive so dead;
That almanac old, lot it be our youth's pall ;
Why raki, up the ashes of dayr',it contained
roe mom'rles unable those days to recall?
NEW YORK. Oct. 29. lWi4. ;
.GRAND MASS MEETlNG . .—NotWithstanditig the
inclement weather, on last Friday, the lo) al heart
ed people of the " Green Spot" turned out en mass
to hear the Hon. Hannibal Hamlin, Vice Presi
dent of the United States, discuses the great is
sues now before the people. The meeting- as
held in the Engine House at the Depot, and this ,
building, although large and capacious, could not
'hold the large gathering 'of people. , Hundreds
were outside. The meeting was called to order
at 2i o'clock, P. !NA., and 1.1,0 n. John Rowe ap
lminted_to preside. Mr. Hamlin was at once in
troduced, amid deafening Shouts of applause. He
addressed himself for the first time td the people
inhabiting this 11110§t heantiful, picturesque' and
fertile valley East of the Alleghenies.
,p.e pointed
to the black and crumbling walls of a once beau
tiro town, the work of treason and rebellion, and
asked is it pitsible that here, where the'ork of
the traitor is so potent, there should w
those who sympathize with those whose arms are
uplifted to strike down the best, government ever
vouchsafed to-man, and whose acts are against
the peace and order of the I community ? He show
ed the evils of secession,;and what would likely
follow were it to succeed.; He spoke of the leni
tive acts of our Government, and its mistakes in
this respect, especially its mistake in not meeting
more sternlyy - the outspoken traitors of the North,
who are doing more hermit() the cause than they
could do were they compelled to go beyond the
: lines, eider thtiertny of the rebels, and, with ba
• yonet fight against the Government they feigned
to uphold amongst loyal people. He held ,up in
derisive style the Chicago platform and its candi
dates. He disclaimed being e party man.' In
times of peace he-was a Republican all over, but
during this struggle for the life of the nation, he
knew nci platform but " Our Country," and was
with no organization but that one which favored
the success of our national anns,and labored to
vindicate the integrity and honor of the people.
He despised the man who4poke of compromise.
To compromise with traitors was disgraceful.
The Democ'eatic party broke the Missouri Com
promise and could not be entrusted with another.
He favored the speediest road to peace. He had the army-and desired to hire them home
again, but he wanted them to enjoy an honorable
peace. He was frequently interrupted by long
,and loud applause. He spoke for more than two
hours, holding his him audience spell - bound by
his powerfularguments and persuasive oratory.
The effect produced by this powerful speech will
long be felt. It will tell on the approaching elec
tion. He went from this to Gettysburg, and then
to New Hampshire. He will be busy nail the
second Tuesday of November, when through the
ballot-box the people of the nation will speak in
terms not to be misunderstood, in favor of uni
versal freedom, against treason,•and for the re
election of Abraham Lincoln to the PresidencF.
ANOTHER,HERO GON E.—Michael Ley, a
member of Co. G, (Capt. L. B. Kurtz,) 17th Pa.
Cavalry, was shot on the Let of October, while .
bearing dispatches rem Winchester to General
Sheridan's headquarters. He was•with a„ squad
of ten men, under Sergt. Royer, and when beyond
Fisher's Hilrwere attacked by forty guerrillas.
Diiring the fight Mr. Ley received a wound in
in his left shoulder blade, the ball passing through
his lungs. He lingered until the morning of the
2Uth, when he expired. He was a 'soldier in the
War with Mexico, and received a wound through
both thighs at the Battle of Wino del Rey, for
which he drew a pension. Being a truly loyal
man and brave soldier, be again offered his ser
vices and life in defence of his country in the
present struggle with treason. His remains were
brought home to his family, raiding near Shimlis
town, and interred in the Presbyterian Cemetery
at Mercersburg with military honors by Captain
Hebble's company. The deceased was 37 years,
8 months and 4-days old. He leaves a wife and
four children to mourn his loss.
'SAD AND FATAL. AFFAIR.-A mad affair, which
resulted iu the death of Mr. Jacob Sw•eitzer, a
harmless and quiet citizen of this place, occurred
'on Wednesday night last. It appears that a squad
of soldiers, who were intoxicated, went to Mr.
Sweitzer's house and demanded admission, whfch
was refused. They then thre'ateued to burstoku
the door and burn the house, but left without put
ting their threats into execution. Mr. Sweitier,
fearing they would return, went to a neighb64 to
call assistance, and while standing on the neiglillor's
steps, one of the 'soldiers, who was still ink the
vicinity, came up behind him aurstruck bias on
the head with a carbine, killing him almost in-
'tautly. Immediately on hearing of this sad oc
eurance, !Lem Couch inaugerated measures to
ferret out the guilty parties and Several arrests
were made, but after an examination were re
leased, no evidence being produced against them.
Mr. Sweitzer was an engineer on the Cumber
land Valley Railroad, and a zealous and consist
ent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
the Carlisle (Pa.) Herald gives the following
notice of a remarkable family: Last week Hi
' ram R Reese brought his two eons, George an&
Jeremiah, to Col. Henderson's (dee to be mus.
tered into the United States service. These two
young men,are the last of twelve brothels who
have enlisted during the war. Four of these
have been killed iu the service and eight CPT them
are yetis the army. The most remarkabl feature
\is yet to and we confess our credulity was
somewhat staggered when we heard the statement
ibui the respectable character of the father, with
Ithe, assertions of his neighbors, leaves no room fOr
.doubt that Mr. Reese, after having sent twelve
'sons to serve his Country, has thirteen sons at
Acme, all of whom are under military age. This
remarkable family reside in Warren township,
Franlin county, of this State. The father is ger
thty-eight years old, and is enjoying vigorous
health; these boys are the childreyfthree mothers.

Hon E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War:
I have just returned from the crossing of the
Boydtown plank road with Hatcher's Creek.—
Our line now extends from its former left to Arm
strong's mill, thence by the Beath back of Hateh
er's Creek to the point above named.
At every point the enemy was found to be en
trenched and him wilrks manned. - No attack was
made during the dm-turther than to drive the
pickets and cavalry inside of the main work. Our
casualties have been light, probably less than two
hundred killed, wounded and missing. The game
is probably tnie with the enemy. 'We captured
however, seven loaded tennis on their way from
Stony Creek to the enemy, about a dozen beef
cattle a traveling forge, and 75 to 100 prisonerr.
On our right Butler extended around well to-
ward the Yorktown road, without finding a point
I shall keep our troops out where they are until
towards noon to-morrow, in hope of inviting as
attack. U. S. GRANT, Lieutenant General.
CITY PorsT; Oct ZI. 1t64:
lion E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War:
Tne attack on Gen. Hancock proves to be a
decided failure. He repulsed the enemy, and
remained in his position, holding posession of /the,
field until midnight, when he commenced with
drawing. Orders had been given for the with
drawal of the 2d Corps before the attack was
made. We lost no prisoners except the usual
stragglers whn_are always picked up. Our cap.

The rebel Gen. Dearing is reported killed.
• Gen. Meade; in his report, says: •
" I am induced to belieWS the success of the
operation, which was most decided, was mainly
due to the personal exertions of Major General
Hancock and the conspicuous gallantry of Brig.
Gen. Egan." - (Signed)

Waimma, Oct 30.
The following despatch was received at a late
hour last night :
To GOVERNOR A. &MMUS :—The garrison
at Beverly, composed ofdetachments of the Eighth
Ohio Cavalry, in command of Lieutenant-Colonel
Yarell, were attacked this morning at daylight, by
Major 11111, of Imboden's command, 'with three
hundred and fifty Rebels. Atter two hours' hard
fighting, the Rebels - were repulsed and routed with
a loss of one hundred and fifteen prisoners, fifteen
killed, and a large number wounded, among the
latter Major Hill, who is mortally wounded hn d
s. prisoner in our hands.
Our loss was 7 killed and 21 Wounded, Mein
ditig--Lieutenant Peck killed and Major Howe
wounded. The Rebels retreated to the moun
tains. 13. F. KELLEY, Brevet Major-General,
The following is received fromveliable sources:
—Our forces have been driving Price rapidly since
Sunday. At the last accounts he was twenty-five
or thirty miles southeast of Fort Scott, his army
routed and dispersed. On Tuesday we bad sev
eral fights with him between Mkund City and
Fort Scott, in all of which he was badly whipped,
losing 1500 prisoners and ten or twelve pieces of
artillery. Major-General Mannaduke and Brig
adier-General Cabell are among the prisoners,
with several Colonels and other officers. He was
again attacked yesterday morning a short distance
north of Fort Scott aid driven pell-mell in a
southeasterly direction.
He burned two hundred wagons yesterday, to
prevent their being captured. Nothing is stated
about the loss on either side, but there seems to
be no dotibt that Price's army is completely 36-
moralized and scattered. The telegraph is work
ing to Fort Scott, but nothing has been received
of to-day's operations, except that our forces are
still in vigorous pursuit.
General Steele, with,a heavy reinforcement, is
at Fort Smith, with the probable view of contest
ing Price', entrance into s Arkansas.
The Rebels were chased all Sunday night, and
constant fighting kept up.
-,--Capt. R. B. Ward, Co. D, 11th Penna. Cay.,
was recently court martialed at Fortress Mon
roe, for forging certificates crediting recruits to
certain townships, and selling horses belonging to
the government. The Court found him guilty
and sentenced him to be cashiered; that he for
feit all pay now due or to become due ; that he
be forever disqualified from holding any office
or post of responsibility; and that he refund to
° the United States the various sums of money re.
Ceived by him for government property.
GEN.• WooL hail recently written a letter, in
which, after exposing the true character of the
authors of the Chicago platform, he thus appeals
to his fellowmembers of the Democratic party: •
"Allow me to ask, is there a Democrat who vo
ted for Senator Douglas for President that will
vote for any candidate who accepts a nomination
from a convention that sympathizes with the re
bels, and which was dictated to by Southern trai
tors in the formation of its platform? I hope
there is not one. Although Douglas was defeated
in his election by the Southern Democracy and a
few Democrats in the North who co-operated with
them, he was one of the first to declare his attach
ment to the Union and his readiness to sacrifice
all he possessed, With life itself, if need be, to pro
tect and defend the republic in its unity and in
"In conclusion, I will simply remark that I be
long to no party, whether Democrat, Whig, Re
publican or other, that is not for the preser
vation of the Union and the Constitution, without
compromises or lines of demarcation, and which
is not in favor of the prosecution of the war until
the rebels lay down their arms, and are willing to
submit to the laws and Constitution of the U.
States. '
