The War.
From tbe latent accounts, it seems that the
rebels along the upper Putomac have re.
treated south of that river and are now tak.
ing their plunder to their depots at Stanton
and GordoDsville. Hunter has been rerauv,
ed from the command of our forces in that
department, and Sheridan a more active
and it ia to be hoped a more civilized general
placed there. There is a report that Gen.
Averill overtook and attacked the rebels at
Moorfield, captured 500 of them with all
their artillery. Sharp engagements occurred
Friday, in front of Petersburg. No particu
lars are given. All is now quiet, there. -
A uaval attack on Mobile by Admiral
Farragat was going on in which he had met
with some success.
Gen Sherman's situation at Atlanta is said
to be critical. It is thought that Ilood is
being so largely reinforced as to be able to
rout and defeat him.

Speaking of the draft. Billy Bur.

In view of the way in which Billy sneaked

rar Governor Curtin's last frsntic appeal
to the people of the state for 30,000 men.
doea not meet with a very hearty response.
We have not heard of any one one's going
from this region and believe that none seri
ously think of doing so. At a large and
enthusiastic war meeting held at the Court
House in this place, on Monday evening,
eleven volunteers were obtained, with the
private understanding, we believe, that they
were not to ieave the town, except in case of
its invasion, Even our o'er patriotic, vegct
able nosed townsman, Billy, who says : "If
called upon" he expect s "to respond," still
" ia~nains at bia post here, with other
weapons, to fight the Copperheads at heme."
Tbe Democrats predicted that the triumph
of a sectional party would produce a disso
lution of the Union. That was denounced
as " loco foco stuff!" The result is before
the country.
We now predict that the re-election of
Lincoln, should it ocour, will render perma
nent the separation of the North and the
South, and cover us with di6grsce and ruin.
This will be termed " Copperhead nonsense !"

Representative in the Confederate Congress
came on the part of the South to the Canada
side of the Niagara Rivei, and there opened
a correspondence with Mr. Horace Gieeley
and Mr. Hay, tbe private ser-retaiy of Mr.
Lincoln, in order, as they declared, to the
| restoration of peace ; that they ma le known
j to Mr. Greeley and Mr. Hay their desire to
, proceed on their errand under a safe conduct
to Washington ; that Mr- Greeley and Mr.
Ha}- were for some days, with the knowledge
' and consent of Mr, Lincoln, in intercourse
! personally and through coriespondeuce with
' these gentlemen on the subject of peace prop
I ositions ; that they declared to Mr. Greeley
by letter dated the 18th July thit they
were "in the confidential employment" of
their Government, and were "entirely fa
miliar with its wishes and opinions" on the
i subject of" propositions looking t> tbe es
tablishment of peaceand that they, or
other persons, when the circumstances of the
correspondence with Mr, Greeley were dis
closed at Richmond, would be at once in-
I vested with authority and accredited as mes

other words, that his terms are the abau
donment of the Federal Constitution, and
substituting for the great work of our fa
thers his own proclamation o the Ist of
January, 1863. Thus, if Mr. Lincoln's will
is to prevail, *we have announced to us, as
the Republican programme, perpetual war
among the white races of the country until
the inferable negro shall be made our equal
in rights and citizenship, to sit at our board,
to marry our daughters, to vote with us , to
rule over us. These are the terms on which
Peace and Union can be restored under a

words in which we find them, accompanying

rudely rejected by the President, as if it was
an offence to his own dignity and an injury
to us all. Here was an offer to come to
terms, to make peace and restore the Union.
The President refused to listen to them.
He abandoned the position heretofore an

Horrible Cruelty To Negrosi
It is only those who thoroughly under
stand the negro character, physical and meu
tah.who really know what is cruelty to t ne
gro. The following shows how Massachu
setts officers treat negroes in Louisiana.—
The Express copies from a city paper an ac
count of the treatment of a negro by Lieut.
Oilman, of the Fifth Massachusetts Cavalry.
It appears that he had the poor fellow tied to
a pole by his two thumbs, his legs vainly en
deavoring to touch the ground. The scene
LA described as follows, by an eye witness :
,l The new sea grass twine cleaved to his
thumbs pressing them like a vice, cutting
with razor sharpness. The pain becoming
excruciating, he struggled vainly to release
himself; IDS mouth became opened ; his eye
balls were almost forced from their sockets
by the great agony he suffered. He felt as
if he could live but a few moments longer.—
A horrible pain it was, for his own leaden
weight seemed to be against his having any
relief. He could no longer support himself
and falling unconscious to the ground, he left
his Jlesh cleaving to the new sca <frass
The cause of this infliction of the above
cruelty was, that the negro hid himself, and
could not be fonnd when wanted to go on
duty. Now this is, perhaps, the most com
mon vice, or rather weakness, of negroes.—
A little harmless whipping—a few sratrt
lashe6—would have cured the negro of the
habit, and not harmed him in the least. The
crazy fanatics of New England would raise a
howl of horror over this harmless punish
ment ola lazy negro, and yet commit upon
him attrocities which it fairly makes the
blood run cold to read.
Humiliation and Prayer*
The Mayor of the City of New York issued
the subjoined official no tice calling attention
to the proclamation of the President, getting
apart Thursday last as a day of fasting
humiliation and prayer. Ilis suggestion to ;
cestain clergymen is well timed and worthy j
of attention and observance on the part of i
th >te who profess to be servants and fellow- j
era ot the meek ind lowly Nazarene :
1864. In view ot the proclamation ot the
President of the United States, setting apart
Thursday, the 4th inst., as a day of lasting
humiliating and prayer, I consider it te bo
my duty to call the attention of this com
munity to the observance of the same.
To the ministers at the various churches
on whom will devolve the doty of opening
prayer in the presence of their congregations
and especially those ministers who have in
culcated the doctrines of war and blood, so
much at variance with the teachings of their

Horrors of the War,

home by order of General Hunter, and a'so
\ the residence of Edmund J. Lee, whose place
i adjoins Mr. Betelers. Fountain Rock, allud.

I with her daughters and grandchildren, has
• been thus ruthlessly deprived of their only

ed ss a member of tho Federal House of
Repreientrtives in 1800-61, and was actively
engaged with Mr. Crittenden and others in
resisting secession ; but, after the call for
seventy.flve thousand men by the President
of the United States, acied with his State.
Captain Martindale was informed by one
of Mr. Bottler's davghters that the property
was not her father's but that of her mother
j —having been conveyed to her many years
j since. She afterwards sent word to General
> Hunter, that he had not succeeded in de.
j stroying one dollar's worth. All be de.

absent from home at the time. No one was
there exceptj Mr. Bottler's iwo daughters
and three little grand children. This ia the
letter of Miss Boteler :
lj 20, 1864—Wednesday night—Mr DEAR
EST SISTERS : I suppose you will have heard
before this reaches you that our dear, beauti
ful home is in ashes. Yesterday just
after dinner, Lizxie, her three little chil
dren and I being at home, fifteen Federal
soldiers of the first First New York Cavalry
under Captain Martiodale, came with orders
from Gen Hunter to burn everything under
roof on the places of A R. Boteler and Ed
mund J. Lee. They came to us first and in
twenty minutes after their arrival it would
have been dangeruus to enter the house. Of
the furniture, we 6aved two little -ocking
chairs and three other chairs from the porch.
This is literally all. The barn in which was
stored all the hay just cut—the servants'
house and library, with the books, cabinet
of minerals, valuable historical papers and
, documents—all are gone. The meat house
. and dairy are still standing,as the wind blew
from them, wriling this is harder work than
1 thought it would be after all 1 nave gone
through with.
They piled up the furniture, and with
camphene, etc., built the fire that has burned
deep into our hearts. Netta and I are at
aunt Nannie's to night; Lizzie ami the chil
dren at the Grove, Mis. Lee has joined her
husband, and Fountain Rock and Bedford
are b>th desolated ! My heart aches to have
such terrible tidings of the dearest spot in all
the world to you. 1 fear I loved it to much,
but my greatest grief is for our darling par
| ents. We are young and can bear such
changes better, but their life ties were form
ed and rivited there. I'll write more in the
! morning, when fitter for it. How many will
be sorry to hear this I I read Hunter's or

keep it to send papa, but it was takea out of

Why Chambersburg was Hunted.
Hunting el Gov. Letcher's House.
The following is the account Gov* Letcher
himself gives of the circumstances attending
the burning of his 1. use by Get . Hunter,
lie says:—
The threats made by soldiers on Saturday
evening, induced my wife to tear the bouse
would be burned, and she expressed her
fears in the hearing of Dr. Paton and Capt.
Towns, of New York. Capt. Towns very
promptly said, that I, being a private citizen,
and the house being private property, burn
ing it, would be an inexcusable outrage, and
proposed at once to go to Hunter's Head
quarters and ascertain. He went, and was
directed by Hunter to assure my wife that
tTe house would not be disturbed. The se
quel shows that the sole object of this assur j
ance was to quiet her a[ prehensions, and
thus prevent anything from being removed.
About half past 8 o'clock A. M. (Saturday
Captain Berry and his Provost guard rode j
up aud the officer called for my wife. She
came to the door, when Barry informed her
that he was ordered by Hunter to fire the
house. She replied there must be some mis
take. and asked f>r the order, He said it
was a verbal order. She then said to him,
" Can it nut be delayed uutil 1 see Gen. Hun
tea 1" " The order is peremptory," he re
plied, " and you have five minutes to leave
the house." She then asked.leave to remove
ler mother's sister : s her own and her chil
dren's clothing, which was insolently refused
Immediately thereafter camphene was
poured on the parbr floor and ignited with
a match. In the meantime, my daughter
had gathered up an armful of clothing, and
was going out when he discoverei her, ran
f.rward and fired the clothing in her arms.
He then poured camphene in the wardrobes,
ber au drawers, and ignited the clothing— j
taEi <g oat My clothing, which he s&'d he ,
iritendel to lake North :
Every house on my lot wa3 burned save a
granary oVer my ice house. Not a particle
of flour, meal, or anything edible was lef*,
all having been carried off on Saturday.
My mother, now in her 68th year, lives on
the lot adjoining my own, having with ber
one of her grandchildren and servant. After
my property had been fired, the fiends fired
her stable, located about forty feet from the
house, with no other view than to burn her
out also. The house caught twice, and
would have been consumed but for the un
tiring efforts of Capt Towns, who made his
men carry water and extinguish the fiArnes.
The Captain behaved bke a gentleman to
wards my own and my mother's family.
Gens. Aveiill, Crock, Sullivan, and Duffee
denounced the whole proceeding Is an out- !
rage, in violation ci ali the principles of civil- j
ized warfare, and stated that Hunter alone
was responcible for these atrocities.

In 18GI the abolitknlsts told us that there
should be no party as long as the war lasts.
Now they are the only party that have candi
dates iu the field for the Presidency, and
have themselves divtded into two parties, one
