The numerous friends of Col. Frazer,
140th Pennsylvania V,olunteers, will be
glad to learn "that , be has recently been
heard from. Col. Frazer was captured 'in
one of the conflicts before Petersburg, in
so many of which . , through the &Ifni ma
neuvring of the rebels, we lost heavily in
prisoners. The Colonel was first conveyed
to Libby prison, thence to the officers'
prison at Macon, Georgia, and when heard
from, August 14th,' was at Charleston, S
C., and in good health and spirits. At
several exchanges of prisoners have been
1 camp effeoted there, his friends may hope
ere long to have the pleasure of seeing him
restored to the place he' has so bon rably
filled in the service of his country.
Crp:olu T. A, Craven, who was lost
in tile Monitor recumgeh, in the `recent at
tack upon the Mobile forte, was one of our
ablest naval officers. He was a native of
New Hampshire, catering the .navy as a
midshipman February 2d, 1829. in' 1835
he was warranted ae a passed'midshipman;
and inlBll was promoted to a lieutenancy.
His principal service, prior to the breaking
out of the rebellion, was rendered in the
various duties connected with the Coast,
Survey, of which• be was one of the most
tililient officers. Ile , wan one of the best
h.ydrographers in this country. When the
rebellion occurred, he was placed in coin-,
mend of the Crusader ' and aided in pre
serving to the Union the important fortress
of Key West. In April, 1861, as corn-.
milder of the Tuscarora ; he wis sent after
the rebel pirates, and engaged in the in
effectual pursuit of 'the Alabama. Early
in the present year he took charge of the
Tecumseh, and joined the James River flo
tilla. He was ordered to Mobile, to rein
force Admiral Farravut, and in the hour of
victory lost his vessel and his life, from the
effects of the torpedo which blew up the
Ttrunisch. He had served his country
thirtylve jeans, and his loss will be se
verely felt.

The Number of the Blind.—The blind pop
ulation the world is estimated at about
3,000,000. Of these 2,000,000 are Mo
lianainedaris and idolaters; about 10,000
are Jews; and about 900,000 are Chris
tians, including those of the Roman Catho
lic ,andrGreek..Churches. Not less than
37,000 of this vast number are in France;
45,000 in Germany; upwards of 70,000 in
Russia'; 3,000 in Rolland; 3,700 in Swe
den; more than 2,000 in. Norway; and
about - 29,000 in the British Isles. Of this
latter number, 21,487 belong to Great Brit
ain, the Channel Islands, &c.; and nearly
8,000 in Ireland. --By the census we are
informed; that of the blind , in Great Brit
ain, &e. under twenty years of age, there
are 2,920; between twenty and sixty years
of age, there are 10,102; showing a pro
portion of more than one-half to be over
ixty years* of age.
Bearcity.of Labor.--The farmers in some
parts of lowa, during the late Summer,
have- been paying farm hands as high as
three di:tilers a day, and a number of manu
featuring establishments were temporarily
closed, on ace.ount of the absence of so
many of ,their workmen who had gone to
the assistance of the farmers. In Wiscon
sin, German girls and women were em
ployed, during the pressure of the harvest,
at two dollars a day. Upon the arrival of
knew emigrant-ship at Philadelphia or
New-York, , the intelligence-office keepers
are among the first at the docks, anxious to
secure a supply of." helps" and laborers of
every sort. The manufacturers at Law
rence, Mass., are paying their employees
nearly double the rates of two years ago.
American Peat —The Poughkeepsie Ea,
gle informed •=tliat *there •is in Ulster
County, within six- nines of that town, not
less•than ft-thousand acres of peat beds of
the beat, quality, and from sixteen to twen
ty feet deep. In Western New-York,.also,
in consequence of the high 'picas of fuel,
the people are turning their attention to
peat.. The Rochester Press says a corn

haaLleased 700 acres of peat (all that is
known in that section of the - State), at'
Bloomfield, on the Canandaigua Railroad.
Pennsylvania Tobacco,—Dariog the last
few years there has been a very large
inote,ase in the 'rooduesion of tobac, o

During the last rebel raid into Pennsylva

from fifteen to twenty oar loads of leaf -to.

The War.—The latest official intelligence
from Atlanta is to Friday, Sept. O. Gen. Sher
man's army was concentrated there. 11was sup
posed to be Sherman's design to withdraw his
advance colon:ins for a while, give his army rest,
establish himself securely in his position at At
lanta, and securable rear communications, bro
ken by Wheeler and Forrest, before making fur
ther advances.
Under datelof Atlanta, Sept. 7th, Gen. Sher
man writes some particulars of the capture of
that city, confirming
.the account already pub.
lished. lie says, in.olosing his letter: " The
rebels have lost, besides the important city. of
Atlanta, stores, at least 500, 2,500 wound
ed, and 3,000 prisoners ; -whereiis our aggregate
loss will not foot up 1,500. If this is /1.0/ bllO
- don't knew what. is."
The Richmond papers take a gloomy view of
the loss of Atlanta. The Examiner attributes
the calamity to the removal of dohneon to make
nom for Hood, whom it pronounces " notorious
ly incapable of managing any thing larger than
a division. Tne result ie disaster at Atlanta:
The moral effect of the loss of Atlanta will be
great. It will diffuse gloom over the South."
the report of Gen. Hai dee'n deaf]) is not con
firmed. Maj. Gen. Patton Anderson is reported
wounded On II a sth inst. Hood's army was in
line of battle at Lovejoy's Station, awaiting an
attack from Sherman. Hood telegraphs that he
is not discouraged. - -
From Mobile we have no additional intelli
gence, except reports brought by refugees, who
have succeeded in coming within our lines.
Tuey report the 'rebel force there to ba, about
10,000, of whom only 3,000 were regular troops,
the remainder being comp )sed of militia, and re
cent-conscripts: A complete military despotism
prevails.. The population is divided into war
and peace - factions ; the latter largely predom
inating in numbers, but compelled to secrecy in
the expression of their opinions. Flour was
selling at $390 a barrel ; cavalry boots, $3OO a
pair; calico, $l5 a yard; spool cotton, $6 a
spool; cotton shirts, $6O each; bacon, $5 a pound.
A. $5OO Confederate bill was offered, without
success, for $lO in gold, or two cents on the dol
lar. Our troops have effected-a landing at Ce
dar Point, three miles above Dauphin Island.
The latest news from Gen. Rousseau is, that
he is driving Wheeler, whols trying to get across
the Tennessee. We hive captured many prison
ers and received many desertens. The railroad
between Nashville' and chattamooga, it was
thought, would be again in running order by
Sept. 9th. ,
On Sunday, Sept. 4th, the noted guerrilla
chief, Jan 11. Morgan, Was surprised, defeated
and killed; at Greenville, East Tenn:, by Gen.
Gillen— The rebel force outnumbered ours, but
the surprise was complete... The rebels lost- 50
killed, 100 wounded, and 75, prisoners, includ
ing Morgan's staff; also one piece artillery and,
one caisson. John Hunt Morgan was ti;" native
of Lexington, Ky., and was in his 38th year at
the time of his death. He had acquired' unen
viable notoriety by his frequent and daring
raids into his native State,,and by the extensive
damage he has for three years inflicted upon the
property of loyal citizens and, of the 11. S. Gov
ernment, more than by 'any remarkable exploits
in the open field and against an equal foe. His
raid into Indiana and Ohio, his capture and es
cape, form one of the most singular episodes of
the war. _
On Thursday, 'Sept. Bth, Col. Holman, 11th
Ky. cay., captured the rebel Col. Jessie and 160
of his men, who being surrounded, surrendered,
without firing a gun.
From the Shenandoah Valley Gen. Averill tel.
egraphs at Bunker Hill, Sept. 8, that "Early re
treated this morning to Winchester. lam on his
heels. I have whipped Vau,ghan's cavalry ; car.-
lured all his train which was not burned, and
taken two battle-ftsgs. He has no artillery. I
have cut off Imbuden." On the 10th inst., Sec
retary Stanton states that no recent movements
in the Valley are reported.
In the army of the Potomac it has for some
time been supposed that a battle was imminent,
if not inevitable, on the line of the Weldon road.
Each party has been massing its forces there,
and a collision may at any time occur. On Fri
day night, Sept.:, about midnight, at a point of
our line just west of the Jerusalem plank-road,
the third division of our third corps made a sud
den advat;tce, surprised the rebels,- captured
about one hundred prisoners, and drove the en
emy back to au interior line of defence. Our
troops still hold the ground thus gained.
Col. Thomas Jordan of the 9th Pennsylvania
cavalry, with 250 men, surprised, attacked and
routed Dabralre brigade of 2,000 men at Ready
villa, Sept. 10th, killing and wounding many,
and capturing 180 pritioners. Our loss was one
killed, five wounded, and four missing.
General.—Seven thousand oases of soldiers'
claims for back pay, 'bounty, etc„ were passed
in the Second Controller's Office, last month.
Over forty thousand are now on the book, and
the average monthly increase is from five to six
The number of prisoners captured by General
Grant since the crossing of the Rapidan, in May
Jest, is stated at the War Department to be up
ward of fifteen thousand.
Anarmy correspondent of the New-York Trib
une says that the railroad now running from City
Point to our lines before Petersburg is to be ex
tended eight miles to our left on the Weldon
road. Our soldiers have taken rails enough
from, the Weldon road to build it, and it. is esti
mated that the rued may be entirely finished in
ten or fifteen dai , e.
Provost Marshal General Fry has decided that,
deserters from the rebel army are not subject - to
enrolment or dm:L.
Extracts are given from an important letter
from Gen Grant to Hon. E. B. Washburne, dated
Aug. Itith, at City Point. He eays: •
,• The rebels have now in their ranks their last
man. The little boys and old men are guarding
prisoners, guarding - railroad bridges, and form
ing a guod part of their garrisons and entrenched
'positions. 4 man lost by them cannot be re
placed.,' They have robbed the cradle and the
grave equally to get their present force. Beside
what they luse in friqent skirmishes and battles,
they are now losing from desertions and other
causes at least one regiment per day. With this
drain upon them, the end is not far distant, if
we will only be true to ourselyes. Their only
hope now is ins divided North have no doubt
hut the enemy are exceedingly anxious to hold
out until after the Presidential elect *t. They
have many hopes from its effects. They hope a
counter revolution. Our peace friends, if they
expect peace, from separation, are - much mista
ken. It would be but the beginning of war,
with thousands of Northern men joining the
South because of our disgrace in allowing sepa
ration. To have peace.on any terms,' the South
would demand the restoration of their slaves al
ready freed; they would demand indemnity for
losses sustained; and they would demand a
treaty.vhich would make the North slave-hunters
for the South ; they would demand pay for the
restoration of every slave escaped to the North."
Gold had tape is New-York, on Saturday,
Sept. 10; to 222, and on 'Monday, Sept. 12, to
2144--a fall of nearly 606 ts. from its maximum-
Tae indioation thus fUrnished is a eignificant one.
Workih parties have commenced repairing
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and it is ex
pected that the road will be in running order by
the 16th inst. Trains are also now running
through on the Nashville and Chattanooga road.
It as reported at Little Rock, Ark., that the
rebel General, Sterling Price, had recently died,
ofKlysentery, at Arkadelphia.
At Indianapolis, Sept. 9th, w arrest was made,
-upon information furnished by a refugee; of an ,
;individual supposed. turbe the notorious guerrals
'gamin)ll, who has left such a bloody record In
Missouri and Kansas. The prisoner denies the
charge, and he is held in custody until the truth
can be ascertained. •
Two valuable British blockade runners, the
Advance and the Ailse Cra7lg, have been recently
captured off Wilmington. The vessels and car
goes are worth probably $500,000. Some ten or
a dozen other blockade runners were preparing
to start from Wilmington ; among them, the pi
rate Tallahassee for another plundering and des
troying cruise.
Since the last rebel attack upon Warren, at.
least 20,000 fresh troops have reached General
Grant, and additional recruits are arriving daily.
The army is represented to be in fine health and
spirits. Gene Mead and Butler have returned
to their commands Warren's works on the Wet=
don road are reported to be exceedingly formi
dable; nevertheless the belief prevails that the
rebels will make another vigorous effart to die
lodge him.
Gen. M'Clellan has written a letter, dated
Orange, N. J , Sept. 8, accepting his nomination
for the Presidency by the Chicago Convention.
The letter is too long for our summary. He
says: "The existence of more than one Gov
ernment over the region which once owned. our
"flag, is incompatible with the peace, the power,
and the happiness of the people." "The rees
tablishment of the Union iu all its integrity is,
and must continue to be, the indispensable con
dition in any settlement." '".The Union must
be preserved at all hazards." He briefly refers
"to the other subjects presented in the resolu
tions of the Convention," omitting the cessation
of .hostilities and ,a convention of the States.
Oa Saturday, September 3, at Auburn, N. Y.,
Secretary Seward made a speech which has at
tracted great attention. In regard to the draft,
he says: " We shall have no draft, because the
army is being reinforced at the rate of five to ,ten
thousand men per day by volunteers." In re-
I gard to emancipation as one of the conditions of
'peace, he says : " When the insurgents shall
have disbanded their armies, and laid down their
arms, the war will instantly cease ; and , all the
war measures'then existing, including those which
'affect slavery, will cease also, and all the, moral,
c.conomioal, and political questions, as
Ouestions affecting slavery as others, which
shall then be existing between individuals and
• Slates and the Federal Ootiernment, whether
they arose before the civil war began, or whether
. they , grew out of, it, will, by force of the Con
stitution, pass over to the arbitrament of courts
of law, and to the Outwits of legislation."
FOreign.—The latest foreign arrivals present
no items of unusual interest. The English pa-
G. pers are discussing the Federal success at Mo
bile. Confederate bonds have fallen. The con

occupied solely with territorial matters, has, ad

Turkey and Montenegro are settled.
The case of the Georgia still receives attention
from the "English press. The facts appear to be
that, whilst a rebel war vessel, it was chased
into an English port, and the 4We:tiara being on
the watch for it., the vessel Was dismantled and
sold as 'a merchant ship, proceeded to sea on a
commercial enterprile, as. British property under
the. British Rag, and was captured by the Niag
ara and sent to New-York as a Confederate prize.
It is contended that no such transfer as that
which was made of the Georgia is valid, or can
divest the vessel of its hostile character. The
question will be adjudicated• in the prize court at
New-York. . •

The Weber Pieno.—The name of Weber,
familiar to all musical' connoisseurs as belonging
to one of the greatest of composers, for who has

different connection as belonging to a fast rising
Manufacturer of pianos in our city, Albert
Weber. After a critical examination of his in
strument we believe with John Zundel, who'
says: " A ten years' acquaintance with a Web—
,er's piano has convinced me that they 'are as
good as the •music' of .C. M. V. Weber." And
what music could be better? The Weber pianos
are fast rising in favor, and are now sought after
by many of our best artists and amateurs. They
deserve it, too, for the merits are too prominent
to be overlooked, and entitle them to the confi
dence and patronage of the public. We do not
particularize the pants of excellence of the
Weber pianos, but prefer recommending our
readers to spend a leisure hour examining and
judging for themselves.

County,. Pa., di the 18th of July, 1864, Mrs.
JANE, wife of Mr. Thomas Robertson, in the
81st year of her age.
The deceased was a daughter of Mr. Hugh
Mitchel, of South Huntingdon Tp. She was
married to Mr. Robertson, August 271 h, 1807,
with whom she was permitted to live during the
unusual period of , nearly fifty seven years.
About the yetr -1823 she pro Fessed her faith: in
* i ptizist and was received as membe3,, of the 8e
via* Presbyterian church, then under the
pastoral care of Rev. A. 0. Patterson. In the
year 1851 she transferred her connection to the
West Newton Presbyterian church, in which she
lived a consistent and honored member yp till
the time of her death. Two of her former pas
tors, together with the present pastor of the
church, took part in the solemn funeral cere
monies. The large concourse of friends and
relatives indicated the high esteem in which she
was held in the church and community. Verily
a mother in our Israel has been taken.
She leaves her aged husband, six sons and
one daughter, to mourn their loss. Yet they
mourn not as those who have no hope. Their
present loss is her infinite and eternal gain.

TIAN, in the 34th year of her age; children and
wife of James K. Beaumont.
Little did we think, as one after another of
those little lambs were taken away, that God'
was preparing the way for the speedy removal
of the mother; but now we see he doeth all
things well." The mother felt that her little
ones were not lost, but gone before ; and while
endeavoring to perform all her. duties to the liv
ing, her thoughts were with the dead, and she
longed to walk with them in robes of light.

emus whose light Shines moat sweetly in the do

best, laved ter most. Though mouths • have
passed away, the heart still aches as we call, to .
memory' the P. ad bereavements- of this, family;
but we are comforted with the hope that mother
and children each wears a starry crown, and
triumphs in redeeming grace. The husband and
father, and three little ones, -remain to mourn"
their irreparable loss., May they have.tbe pres
ence of a covenant, God on, earth, and a joyful
reiinion in heaven. K.

the advanced age ,of 94 years, Mrs. DORCAS
For more than three-soore years she was a con
sistent professor of religion in the Presbyterian
Church. Unostentatious and domestic in her
habits, of great industry and undying devotion
to the interests of her 'family, she has passed
from earthly seetactes, and, trials, calmly and se
renely, as a shock of corn fully ripe, gathered
into the, granary of her Lord. Her children,
five in number', and some of them of three-sobre
years, were al resent to witnessthe ileparting
breath of her whose wish -and desire had ever
been as a law unto them. • '

The deceased was, for a long period preceding
her death,.confined to her room, na n d often to her
bed; 'by an obscure and painful disease. At
titnea.she was comparatively free front' suffering,
and in these periods.of ease some hope was en•-

doomed to a bitter disappointment.: -Suddenly,
with no perceptible • change in her general ap

vivacious and happy temperament, ah, became
the life and, soul of every company into which
she tell, and attracted unconsciously the atten

more painful trial than that to which God called
her. Struck
.down in, the brightness of her
youth and beauty; shut up,to the darkiaces and
loneliness of a sick chamber for long moths,
and then hurried into the presence of. the great
