The Rebel Eald-Wheeling Threat
Monday night at a late hoar,.news reach
ed here tbat a heavy force of rebel cavalry
bnd occupied Morgantown, daring tbe af
terooon, and were believed to contemplate
an advance on Wheeling. Tbe intelligence
wos confined to a few, and while it occa
sioned grentactivity in some quarters, tbe
city was comparatively quiet. The morn
ing train, which came down from Wash
ington, brought a confirmation of the news.
Col. Boyers, deputy Marshal, who liveB
about two miles Irom Morgantown, had ar
rived there in tbe night. He reported that
a cavalry force of 1,500 under Imboden had
occupied Morgantown about three o'clock
on tbe preceding afternoon. Their appear
ance was very sudden and unexpected.
The Court which was iu session, bad bare
ly time to escape. Senator Willey got away.
Col. Boyers says their horses were very
much jaded. It seems pretty certain that
this force is the one, in part at least, tbat
waB at Oakland, the day preceding; tbey
having come across by Kingwood. They
burned the bridge over Yough river, about
a mile west of Oakland, also the station at
Col. Boyers bad gone to Washington, un
der belief that be could telegraph from
there, but upon finding himself mistaken
in this, be proceeded at once to Pittsburgh
to try to procure arms and aid.
Early iu tbe day, yesterday, it was re
ported tbat tbe force at Morgantown had
advanced to Waynesbnrg, Pa., which is
nearly equi distant from Morgantown and
this city. This looked like an advance on
Wbeelicg. Not long after, communication
was lost with Fairmont, and it was believed
tbat place had fallen into rebel bands.
In tbe afternoon communication was
again opened with Grafton. About two
o'clock it was represented that tbe rebels
instead of going to Waynesbnrg had moved
up from Morgantown and were approach
ing Fairmont; that a company of militia
had been sent thither Irom Mannington,
and that a part of Mulligan's force was
moving in the same direction. Dispatches
were received stating that two or three
bridges bnd been burned near Mannington
by guerrillas from tbe surrounding coun
try. Later in the evening communication
was had with Mulligan at Grafton and
Wilkinson at Clarksburg. Ool. Wilkinson
expressed a good deal of incredulity at the
news from this point.
Col. Mulligan said bis position at Grafton
was secure, and that he badsent force suf
ficient to make Fairmont safe, although it
was threatened. DonbtB were felt as to
the genuineness of these dispatches, and
some were inclined to believe that the reb
els had possession of the line and were an
Lata in tbe evening a lot or engiuea
which had been lying at Cameron came in
Some of tbe citizens who came on them
reported a great deal of excitement .therei
occasioned chiefly by reports from this city
tbat the enemy were at Waynesbnrg. They
reported however that a bridge was burned
this side of Burton where a few cavalry
were seen, about 20 miles east of Cameron.
Still later a dispatch was reoeived from
Pittsburg stating that a force of rebel cav
alry had come into Uniontown, Fayette
county, where they were tearing up the
Pittsburg and Connellsville road. This
is presumed to be tbe force from Morgan
town, and if true it is difficult to reconcile
It with tbe statement that Fairmont is
threatened by tbe same force, as the two
plaoes are not very near together.
The indications at a late hour last night
were tbat there was a good deal more
scare than danger abnut the situa
tion of affairs at Grafton and Fairmont ?
The operators at these two places got
soared and packed up and left. That was
why DO communication could be bad with
those points; but the cause not being uu
derstood here it occasioned a good d?kl of
anxiety. At nine o'clock last night tbe op
erators here were conversing with these
points. The fine bridge over the Monon
gahela was untouched. The bridges burned
between here and Grafton are not import
ant and can soon be repaired.
We shall not be surprised If it torus out
that there has been a good deal of unne
Stili Latsb.?At ten o'clock a dispatch
from Grafton announced tbat at 3 o'clock
P. M. a rebel force estimated at 4,000 sud
denly appeared at Newburg, a jution 13
miles east of Grafton, burnt tbe fine com
pany shops there, and came down to Inde
pendence, a mile below, destroyed the I
bridge there over Three Fork, and disap.
peared in the direction of Morgantown
Whither they were really going was a mat
ter of conjecture.
Lee Roy Kramer, of Morgantown, was
not captured at Oakland as feared, nor at
Morgantown either. He turos up at Pitts
burg, where he waa met yesterday by one
of our citisens.
A aeeonnalianet and Narrow Risk.
Monday morning. IV. P. .Willard, super
visor of trains, made a reconnoissance on
.the road east from Grafton, determining to
go as far as he fonod the road unobstructed.
Ha found everything quiet at Bowlesbnrg,
and taking a company on board advanced
cautioatily up to Cranberry Summit. On
his arrival he was told that two hundred
rebel cavalry had left scarcely a quarter
of an honr before. On returning be saw
no enemy till nearing Thornton, five miles
east of Grafton, where.the railroad crosses
the Norwosterri turnpike. Hero-he saw a
large body^of cavalry coming down the pike
ta the road, but a little distance off. The
engineer pat on a full head of steam and j
passed the point before the rebels reached
it, and was not very long iu leaving them
out of sight. Whether this force came on
to Grafton or turned off to the right and
I joined the others at Morgantown is not
Singular Disease ''Among I Factory
There has been considerable excitement
for several weeks past at Uanayunk, a su
I burb of Philadelphia, in consequence of
I the death of a number of' women and cbil
1 dren employed in the mills manufacturing
1 army blankets and other goods. The dis
ease, which iB called by the physicians a
I congestive fever, terminates fatally in about
1 twelve honrs after the first symptoms ap
I pear. The disease, except in few iostacee,
has baffled tbe skill of the physicians; and
I tbe general idea is, that the fever has been
I introduced through tbe means of dirly,
filthy rags, which are imported for the
purpose of being converted into army
I blankets. There has been a large number
I of deaths. In one family three girls that
worked io a factory died within one week.
This Raid into the Monoogahela Valley
I far surpasses in boldness of design and
I celerity of execution the famous raid made
I by Stuart to Chareibersburg. A glance al
I the map shows how much greater distance
I has been traversed, and if we consider the
1 starting place it seems almost incredible
I that horses could endure the fatigue ol
such a jaunt. Undoubtedly they seize all
the borses they can find, and thus keep up
a pretty good supply of fresh horses. It
is but reasonable to believe that manj ac
I cessions have been made to their ranks, afi
I there were without doubt numerous com
I panics organized in different parts ot tbe
country ready to join them.

I Southern Opinions about the War In
Tbe following are from special Murfrees.
boro dispatches, which appeared in the
Pittsburg Oasette of Monday :
A leading editorial in a late number of
the Atlanta Intelliyencer, is devoted to a dis
cussion of tbe probabilities of a union be
I tween Rosecraos and Grant. It believes
I tbat Rosecrans will be reinforced, and thtt
tbe great battle of tbe war will come oil'
between Nashville and Chattanooga?if
I not, Rosecrans will fight no great battle
I this summer.
I The Jackson Appeal says: "Grant's
1 army is evidently being removed, and its
I most probable destination is tbe Cumber
I land and Tennessee. Enough will be left
I behind to amuse our forces at Vicksburg,
I while tbe main body moves rapidly to tbe
I assistance of Rosecrans."
Tbe Daily Jlistutippian, in a leader on
I the same subject, says : "From a careful
I survey of the situation which the move
ments of the Federal armies present, the
conviction bus been graduslly forced upon
our minds that our enemy is preparing to
I mR93 a tremendous force, perhaps not less
than three hundred thousand men in Mid
dle Tennessee, under tbe command of Rose
crans, to be burled upon Gen. Johnston
I and his sturdy soliers, with the hope of
I annihilating tbem, and lliuB opening the
I way to ibe Mississippi Valley and the heart
I of the Confederacy. TbiB grand clash of
I arms is intended to give a quietus to the
I rebellion, and the hope which the know
I ledge of this movement has inspired, may
I have tbe effect of bolsteriug up tbe credit
of tbe Lincoln Government for a while.?
I The Northern people have great confidence
in Rosecrans, and beyond doubt, he is one
of the most wily and best Generals in their
1 Tbe Appeal gays "another hypothesis is,
I that the Federal forces are to, be concen
trated at Memphis, and thence move on
rapidly into Mississippi. It infers this
may be tbe case from the recent stringent
I orders issued by the Federal authori
ties at Memphis. Alter all, it cannot de
I cide whether Grant is to join Rosecrans,
I or concentrate his forces at Memphis or
I Corinth." Who shall satisfy these anxious
I souls T
I The governor and legislature of Geor
gia are acting as if they could not see the
lend of the'rebellion. They refine to
I guarantee the confederate bonds?a meas
ure relied union to restore the rebel finan
ces to some degree of vitality and value;
I they rejected a bill to oompel the plant
I ing ot provision crops instead of cotton,
I and have left their people free to do as
they please; they have voted down a bill
to lay special taxes and disabilities on
such citizens as refuse to take the oath to
support the confederacy,?and in general
they show a disposition to break with
I the confederacy that excites no little
I alarm among the rebel leaders.
Tha other day a well known New York
"?well" laid a wager that he would col
lect twenty dollars in one day by sweep
ing n broadway crosswalk. Arrayed in
I in fashionable style, ho took his station
on ft crossing near brace Church, plying
his ragged broom industriously, and hold
ing his hat humbly to his contributors.
I until towards sundown he cast bis broom
across the street, jumped into a carriage
and was wBuled away with $27 15 in
honest peonl9and postal currency in his
Tm telegraph operator at Cranberry
Summit says Ed Zane, formerly of Wheel
ing, was a prominent member of the gang
that bnrned the station there. Zane told
'him to tell the people of Wheeling, that it
was he (Zane) who had burned it.

The Military Operations In North
The news from North Carolina is of the
most cheering character. By the BkillI and
heroism of General Foster, the little band
at Washington, surrounded by a large
host of rebels, were not only enabled to
hold out, but, by bis daring in running the
gauntlet of the enemy's batteries, and bis
I energy in organizing a force at Newbern,
to capture tbe besieging army, tbe rebels,
discovering what was on foot, gave up the
siege, and fled with* precipitation. In all
this business Foster has shown himself
to be o man of sagnoity and nerve.?
I It is important to hold Newbern, for
it is tbe rear of tbe main army of the
rebels, and continually threatens its
communications with the other rebel
armies in the South, and may become tbe
entering wedge to gain interior lines, so as
to divide the rebel forces, and destroy
ibem in detail. When Gen. Burnside cap
tured Roanoke Island, and followed up the
victory by the capture of Newbern, he
planted a tborn in tbe side of the Confed
erate army of Virginia which has giveni it
trouble ever since, and has compelled the
employment of a large force to watch and
counteract movements upon its flank or
rear. By a conp de main tbe rebel Generals
hoped to capture the force at Washington
first, and then to pounce upon Newbern ;
but they have been effectually baffied, and
compelled to retreat with loss and humili
A Copperhead lKbuketl by Walking,
The following anecdote is from the
"Life and Letters of Washington Irving,"
two of the most delightful volumes, by
the liy, that ever issued from the press:
1 Irving was descending the Hudson on n
steamboat when the tidings of the trium
phant entry of the British iuto Washing
ton, and the acts of uncivilized hostility
which followed, first reached him. It
was night, und the passengers had beta
ken themselves to^their settees t<? rest,
when a person came on board at Pough
kecpsie with the news of the inglorious
triumph, and proceeded in the darkness
of the cabin to relate the particulars: the
destruction of the President's house, the
Treasury, War and Navy offices, the Cap
itol, the depository of the national library
and public records. There was a mo
mentary pause after the speaker had
ceased, when somo paltry spirit lifted his
head from his settee, and in a tono oi
complacent derision, "wondered what
Jimmy Madison would say now." "Sir,"
said Mr. Irving glad of an escapo to his
swelling indignation, "do you seize on
such a disaster only for a sneer 1 Let
mo tell you, sir, it is not a question about
Jimmy Madison or Jimmy Armstrong.?
The prido and honor of tlie nation are
wounded: the country is insulted and
disgraced by the barbarous success, and
every loyal citizen should feel the ignom
iny and be earnest to avenge it.' ^
could not see the fellow," said Mr. Irving,
"but I let fly at him in the "dark." A
inurmer of approbation followed the out
burst, and then every oar was. listening
for the reply; but the energy of the re
buke had cowed the spokesman, for he
did not again raise his voice.
At Rome, recently. Miss llosmcr, the
