The fact that Gen. Beaver is now a
pr imihent candidate for Governor will
give uita appended sitetcli of his military
career new interest. We copy it from
nil article in the Philadelphia Times of
Saturday last, written from Bellelbnte:
GENERAL B KAY Kit's HISTORY.
•James Addanis Beaver was born at
Millerstown, Perry conuty, on the 21st
oi October, ISH7. His mother was Miss
Addams, of the same section. lie nud
only the usual rude common schools of
that day to lay the foundation for his ed
ucation, but he finally reached .Jcll'erson
College, where he graduated creditably
in 1 856. Three years later lie was ad
mitted to the l)ni in this town, where lie
had studied his profession, and his lot
was thus cast for life with the intelligent
and solidly progressive people of this le
gion. He exhibited an early taste for
lue military, and made his first appear
ance as a lieutenant of the Bellelonte
Pencil)les before the war, where lie com
manded the embryo War Governor ol the
State. In 1805, alter he had returned
from the field, full of scars and hon
ors and with one leg left oil the field of
Ream's Station, he married Miss Mary
McAllister, daughter of the late 11. N.
McAllister, then one of the ablest law
yers of Central Pennsylvania. llis ac
complished wife, his several bright chil
dren, his pretty, home-like residence on
one of the hills surrounding the town,
and his ever genial greeting lor his
friends attract many to his family circle
and leave pleasant memories with all his
visitors. In person he is nearly six feet
in height, although his iudispcusibie use
of the crutch to perforin the duties of
his uiissing leg makes him appear less in
stature. Before he entered the military
service he was delicate almost to ett'emi
naoy , but his form and face have rounded
out handsomely, and his slightly silvered
hair, keen gray eye and military hat give
him all th" air of the veteran soldier lie
is. At the bar he is singularly tenacious
in battling for his cause, but one of the
most manly of foes in legal conllicts. In
his private life and character he is most
exemplary, being a consistent and active
member oi the Presbyterian Church, and
energetic in all the olliees of morality and
humanity. Indeed lie Is regarded by
many as religious even to bigotry and in
tolerant in his efforts for Temperauce
and social order.
GENERAL BEAVER AS A SOLDIER.
When the rebel guns first sounded
against Port Suinpter the Bellefonte Feu
eibles were among the first to respond to
Governor Curtin's call for troops, and
Lieutenant Beaver was among the most
zealous iu the cause. The company was
the third to report at Harrisburg, and it
was mustered into the service with Bea
ver as First -Lieutenant, in which posi
tion he served during the three months'
term. As soou as he was mustered out
lie re-enlisted and was promoted to the
Lieuteuaut Colonelcy of the Forty-tilth
Regiment, which was ordered to South
Carolina. Coloue I Beaver was there sta
tioned at Fort Walker with five compa
nies, commanding the entrance U) Port
Royal Bay. In July, 1802, the regiment
was ordered north and Beaver was made
Colonel of the One Hundred and Forty
eighth Regiment, one of the new three
years regiment then recruited, llis com
mand was present at Fredericksburg, but
was iu the reserve, and did not become
engaged in that unfortunate conflict, but
at "chancellorsville Colonel Beaver gal
antly led his command into a hand-to
hand conflict with the enemy, where he
fell, as was t ;n believed, mortally
wounded. The ball passed clear through
his body, but skilful surgical treatment
brought liini through, and lie rejoined
liis command and was actively engaged
at Brlstow Station and Mine Run. In
the spring of 1864, Colonel Beaver was
conspicuous for gallantry at Spottsylva
nia, North Anna, and Tolopotomy. At the
first lie was struck by a miuie ball, but
was saved from a dangorous and proba
bly a fatal wound by a m jmorandum book.
At Cold Harbor lie was also struck but
not. seriously disabled and lie maintaieed
liis position oil the Held at the head of his
In the first assault before Petersburg,
Colonel Eiuver was struck by a fragment
of a shell and suffered severe iuterual in
juries and a terrible flesh wound in the
side. He was again compelled to linger i
fretfully in the hospital while the last
battles for tiie Union were being fought
from day to (lav. lie left the hospital
before he was ablejjto ride his horse, and i
proceededjin an ambulance to the field,
and reached it just as the army was J
preparing to battle at Ileum,s
Station, and he at once assumed com
mand of ids brigade. He was only a
short time on the Held when lie was
struck on the right leg, above ihe knee,
lie was left on the Held, but a faithful
surgeon remained with him, amputated
his leg, and between the hospitality of
an enemy and the ceaseless and skilful
care of his surgeon he received, lie was
brevetted a brigadier General for gallan
try in action, and he returned home
liellefont at the close of the war to _re
stiine the practice of his profession.
