What it
_Must Conte To.--The quicker we
fully realize the proposition that this is, and
trust he, a war of subjugation, the better
will it be for us. We are to subjugate the
rebels, says the Springfield Republican,- or
the rebels are to subjugate us,_ We have no
c owe in t c matier. Whatever may be our
- theory of the war - and the - . re-establishment
of the Union, we must not tbr a moment, be
deceived by the fallacy that the rebels are
fighting simply for independence. The pea :
pie of the South may have this in mind alone.
Just such ideas as will best unite them and
best inspire their fighting qualities will be
furnished to them by their leaders; but those
leaders are after dominion ; and they intend
to become the overshadowing, all controlling
political power on this continent. They in
tend nothing short of the subjugation of the
North. They lave everywhere a.sumed the
offensive, and they intend to pass on to con
quest, and on northern soil to dictate the
terms on which this Union is to be recon
Let us, then, abandon this fallacy that the
Sonth is only fighting for its independence.
It has simply appealed to the sword from
the ballot box. to regain the political ascen
dency which it had lost. Of course, if the
North thoroughly understands this, there is
nothing for it to do_ but to fight it out. If
it becomes necessary for all the men to go to
the battle field, then all must go. The whole
North must be transformed into a camp, or
move en Infuse upon the conspirators and
their hordes and wipe them out. We have
been humiliated ; we 'have been insulted ;
but never can we submit to the dishonor of
southern domination, and become tho tools
of a slaveholding oiprohy.
The Rebel Raid.—We learn tbat - tlie Reb

Mercersburg with several other citizens of
that place. The Doctor is said to have been
taken as far as the Sugarloaf Mountain, in
Frederick County, where he succeeded in
making, his eibape and has since arrived at
home. In passing from Fairfield to Emmitts
burg the Rebels fell upon a company of
Home Guards drilling, capturing five or six
of them. Mr. SANVOSD SHBODER, son •in
law of Dr, WALKER, of this place, was met
by them on'the road between Fairfield and
Emmittsburg and also captured. Mr. S. had
his little son in the buggy with him, but

rir We are permitted to publish the fol
lowing letter received by Mr. II F. DAws,of
this place, announcing the death of his son :
F.eptember 6 , 1862.
- Ma. / HENRY F. DAtit Si r-:—lt
becomes my painful infotin you of
the death of your son, GEO. F. DAVIS. He
had been suffering fbr some time, from a com
plication of disorders, and although th.surel
by the physician, but a few days ago, that
he was convalescent, I was therefore the
more pained when I hoard of his demise.—
You may rest assured that every attention
war given him, forte was a favorite, not on
ly with the officers, but with the privates,
whose respect and admiration; he obtained
by his manliness, his courage and urbanity;
so that his comrades had determined to send
his body borne, and PaileJ to do so because
of their inability to procure a metalic coffin.
While under my command your son never
disobeyed an order, and, in all things, acted
like a man and a patriot ; and hence I mourn
his death. I shall see that he is decently
intered. His effects I will transmit to you.
I must say again, your sou was generally be
loved, because kindness and good-will were
such prominent traits in his - character, that
to know him, was to love him.
Yours respectfully,
it. B. WARD,
Captain CoMp. D, 11 Pa.,_Cavalry.
IterA Frederick eorrespOndent of the Bal
timore American, adverting to the Rebel raid
into this State, says :
On the road to Mercersburg the rebel cav
alry seized Mr. Raby, a farmer living in the
neighborhood. He was on horseback, and
attempted to avoid them,
but was — overtaken
and required to give up his horse. He pro
tested vigorously, and for this not only lost
his horse, but was kept prisoneWor two days.
At Mercersburg they also arrested Dr. D. 0.
Blair, and carried him with them to the riv
er. From this latter gentleman I learn
many partieulani of their movements.
When they first entered Mercersburg the
citizens were in doubt whether they were Fed
orals or Rebels. Dr. Blair asked one of the
offi,mirs where they were from, and received
the reply that "he was from the State that
you Yankees and Abolitionists hate the
worst, South Carolina." Soon after Dr.
Blair recognized among them Captain Logan,
formerly of this State, and addressed him by
name. Logan replied with a volley of abuse,
and attacked the Doctor with a bowie knife,
to avoid which he ran through the hotel.
They had previously demanded the key of
his stable, and for refusing to give it up, and
perhaps through the influence of Logan, be
was made a prisoner.
After an hour's stay at MercerslArg,
principally occupied in seizing horses and
drinking whiskey, they moved on to Chain
bersburg, entering that place about datk on
Friday evening.

And I believe . you, will be 'rewarded in the

The Escape of Stuart's Cavalry.
FREDERICK, Mn, Oct. 13.—The escape of
the rebel cavalry_ aiross the Potomac is fully
confirmed. After being driven from Nolan 's
Ferry, they -divided, and crossed the river
in small bodies at different points.
Two farmers, taken prisoners at Mercers
burg, Pa.,and paroled at the river, arrived
here to day. They report that General
Stuart and Hampton were both — with the
expedition. The cavalry consisted of detach
ments from Virginia and South Carolina
regiments. They seized no horses in Mary
land, but swept the parts of Pennsylvania
through which they passed, of every horse
worth taking. Mr. Clark, the newspaper
express man, was - captured, but escaped after
they had crossed the river.
CARLISLE, October 13:--The excitement
created here, by the late tebe: r aid - into this
State, is subsiding. TheK trains on the
Cumberland Valley Railroad have resumed'
their regular trips.
A large cavalry force left Hager‘town
yesterday iu persuit of the rebels.
There was a fight last night at Knoxville,
Maryland, which is on the Potomac, five or
six miles east of Harper's Ferry. It is
reported that a number of the rebels were
captured in endeavoring to cross- the river
at that point.
The Rebel Raid—What Stuart In
tended to do.
The Washington Star of Monday even
ina.° has the following :
A man who arrived here / this - morning
from near Conrad's Ferry, states that he Was
in the presence of Gen. Stuart a few minutes
before he crossed the river with his marau
ding force, in his retreat from his late foray
into Pennsylvania. Gon. Stnart informed
him, in a sarcastic manner, that he had 'fool
ed the whole party.'
Ho regretted that he had not accomplished
what was intended when he , started, as he
was expected to reach Frederick,Md., destroy
the Government stores at that point, and
then destroy the Midge over Manococy river;
but that, aA things taken into consideration
he "had carried out his progmonne with
much success. _
Stuart's men and horses looked extremely /
exhausted, but the former were in high glee,
and from the looks of the clothing on their
persons, and that which they had tied on
their extra (stolen) hems, (which numbered
about 1000,) they expected and said that
the change would b,e very acceptable, espec
ially the shoes and hoots, of, which they had
a 'large quantity.
Gen. Stuart sent complimeuta to a
number a United BMA officers with whom
he was acquainted in old times. Cool, de

When takeninto 'consideration that
the river is made fordable by the low stage
of water at so many points, and that the
Army of the' Potomac has aline of' pickets
extending from Cumberland to Washington,
a distance' of one hundted and fifty miles it
will be seen that it is an easy matter for a
large ,rebel force of to pettettateit:
The moment the:faict - of the rebels,having
crossed the riverat McCoy's Ferry became
known, every exertion was made to prevent
their escape, which was deemed 'necessary.
Orders were sent to the different comman
ders to move and occupy the positions as.
signed them.
Unfortunately, at this particular time, a
majority of the cavalry force was absent, on
important duty, at tea great a distance to be
of any use in following Stuart. On an im
portant occasion -of this kind, infantry not
being able to make a lengthy march, are of
no practical use, except in guarding fords
near at hand.
When Stuart crossed at McCoy's Ferry,
he had fresh horses,-they having beeen sent
to that point in advance. His movements af
ter crossing the Potomac were rapid. He
marched his force ninety-two miles in twen
ty-four hours. To accomplish this he had
the fresh-horses taken from the citizens of
From the time Pleasanton, commanding a
brigade of cavalry and one battery, left the
cawp, until he came up with the rebels at
the Mouth of the, 'lonoca,cy, at 9 o'eloak
yesterday morning, he marched seventy-eight
miles, within twenty-four hours, without a
change of' horses or rest.
At that point, while attempting to cross
into 111..41A - it, the rebels were repulsed and
#ine of them taken prisoners. The total loss
on our side was one man wounded.
Stuart, finding himself unahle to. cross
here, moved three miles further down the
river, to White's Ford, where he made good
his escape. Pleasanton, while pursuing him,
lost the use of his guns, the horses giving out.
It is believed that the marches, ;'both
the rebel cavalry and our own, were the
must extraordinary on record.

boundless. Altogether . we have. 2,000 pris
oners, including neatly 100 officers; besides
the wounded about 1,000 rebels were killed.
Our loss was 350 killed and 1,200 wounded.
Accurate reports cannot be given until the
victorious army return from Corinth,.

General Oglesby's wound is better, but
still dangerous. Coronet Smith and Gilbert
are improving.
The President's Visit to the Confederate
IVOunded at AS'harpsburg.
The Washington correspondent of the
Cincinnati Cipnercial, who was with fres
ieent Lincoln in his late visit to the army ou
the Upper Potomac, relates the following as
strictly true:—
After leaving Gen. Richardson the party
passed a house in which Was a large number
of Confederate wounded. By request of the
President, the pirrty alighted and entered
the building. Mr. Lincoln, after looking,
remarked to the woundelCk%federates that
if they had no objection he would' be pleased
to take them by the hand. He said the
solemn obligations which we owe to our
country and pdsterity compel the prosecution
of this war, and it followed that many were
our enemies through uncontrollable circum
stances, and he bore them no malice, and
could take them by the hand with sympathy
and good feeling . After a short silence the
Confderates came forward, and each silently
but fervently shook the hand of the Pres
ident. Mr. Lincoln and General McClellan
then walked forward by , the aide of these
who were wounded too severely to. be able.
to arise, and bid them be of good cher,
< I
assuring them that every possible care sh uld
be bestowed upon them to .ameliorate their
condition. It was a moving scene, and le e
'was not, a dry eye in the building, eitEer
among the Nationals or Confederates. Both
the President and Gen. McClellan were kind
in their remarks and treatment of the rebel
sufferers during their remarkable interview.
that on Tuesday last, Mr. Geo. Smith, re
siding neat Bird Hill, fourth Election Dis
trict, was found : hanging dead, in his barn.
A. Jury of Inquest was summoned by N.
Gorsuch, Esq., who rendered a verdict that
the deceased came to his death by hanging
himself, The docersed was always regarded
as a clover, inoffensive man, and was about
60 years of age. We have heard no cause
