Yesterday Thompson had another trial

What is real in tlie recent intelligence
Yoni the neighborhood of Charlestown is
juite sufficient to arouse concern for the
state of things there, without the addition of
"also alarms founded o:i rumors tlio most
aporv. Tlio incendiary destruction of
arge stores of whoat and other farm proluce
is of itself all too nfHicting, and needs
lot the fictitious addendum of hundreds of
rmod insurgents impossibly encamped at
oino unknown place, yet located eonsiderbly
further towards the interior of Virgina
than ('harlestown itself! With respect
o the incendiary net reported, they do not
ppen' to he confined to Virginia, for the
ame crime is rife in some p u ts of Pennsylvania.
