COUNTERFEIT ON TIIEBANK oFNORTu•
lIMBERLAND.—Within a few dais past a
suntber of counterfeit five dollar notes on
the Bank of Northumbirland were' put
into circulation in this place. They were
listed February —, 1856, and signed by
J. R. Priestly, Cashier, ands John Tag
eart, President. it is well to observe
that Mr. Taggart signed no inotes since
Deceluber,"lBs4, and retired from office
in 1855. These notes are circulated to
deceive inexperienced persons. The pa
per is rather light, and the shading over
the vignette, under the words "Bank of
Northumberland," is too heavy. The pa
per ip [ the spurious notes is white, not the
colored paper. now , used. These counter
feits were detected in Philajolphia, but
by soave mistake were ascribed to the
Northumberland County Bank.
CerThe Lycouling Gazette in speak
ing of the death of Col. J. RICHTER
JONES, of the 58th Penna, in which Reg
iment are some of the Potter Boys, says :
"This community has heard with deep
reoret'of the death of the lion. J. Rich
ter Jones, Colonel of the 58th, regiment
-of Pennsylvania Volunteers. For many
years Col. Jones was one of the judges
of the Court of Common Pleas of Phila
delphia city and county, associated with
Judges King, Parsons and Campbell;
but for some time past he has resided at
Lewis' Lake, Sullivan county, and taken
as active part -in public affairs in this
section of the State.. In politics he was
a radical Democrat ; ' but at the com
mencement of the war he raised a regi
went, ,was appointed its Colonel, and, has
now laid down his life in defending that
Constitution and government to which
he was ever es devotedly attached. His
regiment formed part of Gen. Lee's brig
ade, at Newbern, N. C., with which he
wade a gallant and successful reconnois
sance,. the entire brigade being under his
command, on the 22d ult. When Within
a few miles of Kinston he surprised and
captured two hundred rebels belonging to
the 6,Bth North Carolina regiment, In
cluding a number of officers, together
with a field piece and a large quantity of
small arms, equipments, &c. After the
enemy bad been routed, and the victory
won, he was shot behind a breastwork by
a sharpshooter. In his death the gov
ernment has lost one of its bravest and
-cost gallant defenders, and the commu
nity a noble, manly Christian gentleman,
of sterling integrity and unsullied honor."

CAMP PAROLE, A S'NAPOLIS, MD.,M3y . / 6, '63.
NY DEAR PARENTS : By the kind
hand of Providence I am_ again released
from Rebeldoin, and have just arrived at
this place. My health is good, consider.
ing the treatment we have had. They
nearly starved us to death The first three
days and nights we did not get a mouth
tul, and marched 35 miles in the time--
then they gave each` man a cupful of flour
which we mixed up with cold water and
oaked on a stick.
They marched us all the way to Rich
mond, fording streams waist deep two or
three times a day. The last day we
marched 35 miles and were then put in
Libby prison.-306 men. in one room.
There we lay for four days and had one:
loaf of bread in the time; such as we get
from Uncle Sam. in one day.
We were then parolled and marched to
CitY Point, by way of Petersburg, which
was 37 miles in one day.
_We were in
their hands twelve days. -Here our trans
ports were waiting for ns, and had plenty
.orthe best kind of grub.
There are eight from our Company with
me, and also Walter Scott. I first found
him: in Libby Prison. He is well and
will write to his folks to-morrow. Ed.
Kelly is with us; he is tough. We are
is draw new clothes to-day.

NEW ORLEANS, May 29.—The fight
at Port Hudson is fairly started.
Rebel rumors are numerous on the
street. MI that le known trustworthily
is that the fight is a severe one. Brie.-
Gen. Sherman is badly wounded in the
leg, above the knee, and has been brought
to the city. It is hoped his leg may be

WORKING REBEL FARMS.—The War

Grand Jury, or trial by Petit Jury, and
all because they were found in, armed

Recent advices from Europe state that
the Polish struggle takes more and more
