Mount UniOri Encampment ,
_ _
, k
Ma. EDITOR.-After what has appeared in the
Ledger, of the 21st inst., in regard to a military
encampment, recently held at Mt. Union, in this
County, I deem it my duty, as a member of one of
the companies composing the encampment, to
make a statement of facts relative to the matter,
lest by our hitherto silence, and what has emana
ted from the pens of one or two individuals with
prejudiced minds, an unfavorable impression may
be produced in the minds of the community.
'rho encampment it is tree, comparatively speak
ing, was small, only four companies being in at
tendance, but this circumstance had no tendency
to frustrate the object of our assemblage. The
military rules and regulations of soldiers quartered
',II such occasions, were strictly observed and en
liseed. And systematic battalion exercise was
had every &yet regular hours, in connection with
which there was daily company drill. So that, as
regards acquisition of knowledge in military sci
once, I think ho' Soldier-returned home dissatisfied. I I
The greatest good feeling pervaded the entire
bounds, anti no disorderly conduct was exhibited
at any time. When on duty, every member was
orderly and attentive, and all the officers 'faithfully
discharged their duty. A goodly number of the
,oldiers boarded themselves in their tents; the rest
boarded at Mr. Hollidal's Hotel, a few steps from
the ground. But all were required to lodge in
their tents, without reference either to rank or
standing. This gave us a faint idea of a soldier's
life, but it appealed to be perfectly congenial with
the feelings of all. But notwithstanding the rigid
ity and exactness of the rules by which we were
governed, I never saw a set of men whet enjoyed
themselves more, on any occasion, than did the
soldiers of our recent encampment.
Our next encampment will occur at this place,
sometime during the coming Spring, when a great
number of companies will be present; and if the
writer of the Ledger can make it convenient to at
tend, we certainly will not overlook hint in the
presentation of our arms, in honor of the very high
reputation he has acquired in our section of the
country, by his recent effort in our behalf. All
the author said is a tissue of lies. There were no
companies present uniformed as ho described them.
True, we are not dandies, nor city gentlemen, but
we are honest and work for our living.

A New STATE.—The Green Bay Advocate
says that the people of the Upper Peninsula of
Michigan are agitating the project of separation
from the State, awl the formation of a new State.
On the 24th inst., in this place, by the Rev. L.
P. Hawes, Rev. GEORGE ELLIOTT, Pastor of the
Presbyterian church, in Alexandria, to Miss MAR
GARET A. Minix,
At ihnTislinrg, on the 20th inst., Rec. J. H.

Miss REBECCA UARRETSON, of York county.
On the 17th inst., by Bev. J. F. Mesick, Trrrs
TAYLOR Won Tit, Esq., Editor of the "Lebanon
Courier," to Miss MARY ELLEN, daughter of Dr.
J. W. Wiestling, of Harrisburg.
[We congratulate friend' WORTH on the above
happy event, and give him a most cordial welcome
into the ranks of married blessedness. We may
also congratulate the citizens of Lebanon on the
hope they may now reasonably entertain of an in
r Mtn of I Vora in their most worthy little county.]
At Duncan's Island, of Consumption, on the
20th inst., Mrs. ELIZABETH DUNCAN, wife of Dr.
Thomas Duncan, in the 27th year of her age.
[How true it is, that "afflictions never come
singly." But a few months since, death entered
the family of Dr. Duncan, and his widowed mother
was taken from him; soon after, he followed his
four children to their last lonely resting place, and
now we are called upon to record this last and
heaviest affliction. In the midst of his sore afflic
tions, however, the grief-stricken husband has the
sweet consolation of knowing, that though the cold
winds sweep unfeelingly over the lonely resting
places of the loved and lost, their happy spirits
have soared aloft to a better world, where "the
weary arc at rest," and where they will tune-their
golden harps, and forever sing praises to Dim
who is "the fairest among ten thousand."

Bounty Lands under the late act of Congress, and
generally to all business connected with a general
Land Agency. .
Having completed arrangements whereby per

rapidly improving portion of the West, can do so
at the minimum price of $1,25 per acre, without
the expense and risk of travelling there, any per

will have one quarter section (160 acres) entered
in their name, (or as they may direct) for which
they will receive the patent from the general Laud
