iweniv-fourrh Annual Fair of
my ACTtcultural Society, will be held at
.enia", Ohio, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs
day, September Kth. bth and lllth, lt-C3.
The officers of this society are making great
exertions to m ite this Fair interesting and profitable.-
We bespeak a pood turn out, think of
' this miner in time, and let every one ns
somcthin" and help to fill up the halls. The stock
department, heretofore, hie mostly been well at
tended, in fact we think, that Greene County
can beat anv other County in the State in show
ing fine stock. -Much ot this is to be attributed
to the interesf that our farmers take in exhibit
ing their stock at County and State Fairs. We
take the respensibillty to say a little on this
subject, and to urge a good turn out , and a cor
dial support to the coming Fair; for it might be,
unless a litt le more interest is manifested by the
t itizeBS of Xeuia, especially the business class.
e may not enjoy the pleasure of having the
grounds located so conveniently to the city as
thev are at present. The members of this Board
have labored hard to nvike it a success; and, as
they think, have not received a correspondent
encouragement from the citizens. The present
grounds are well adapted, and conveniently ar
ranged for holding a County Fair. We know of
none about the city more so.
"3f We invite attention to the card of Dr's
Clark and McC'lci:n. Or. Clark is a physician
i -fthirtv years' experience, and has come to this
'' hi- family to make it his permanent
is one of the few wlio has stood
i , , i i years' service without breaking

!!.. - gentleman so well known as Dr.
McClcllan, Uj ouM to and will receive a cor
dial welcome from otir community. The sick
need not hesitate while this firm is within call.
Faib at Jahkstow n. The Annual Fair of the
Union Agricultural Society will be held in
Jamestown, August 26th. 2ft h and 2-tth. The
Annual Fairs of this Society, have all been first
class. The coining one is likely to surpass all of
them. Jamestown is in the center of a great
stock raising and grain growing district; the so
ciety, we believe, "is out of debt ; its grounds are
rhadv and in good condition, and the officers are
the right men.
Methohh-t Efisooi al CovFutFNCE. The Cin
cinnati Conference of the M. E. Church, will
meet here on the 2d day of September. This
will be an interesting meeting, and many men
of talent will attend h. Our citizens will have

by the name of our city.

From Rochester, N. Y.
ROCHESTER, N. Y., August 16, 1863.
ilr Dr-Ar M. Editor : From Niagara, I have
-' now got here to this nourishing little city, which
boasts of 50,000 inhabitants, and, as the guide
books tell vou, of the great falls of the Genessee
River At present there is but a mere dribble
of water pouring over immense bluffs of nigged
rocks; the water appearing the more insignifi
cant in volume from contra st with the great
Niagara Cataract, still so fresh in its grandeur,
in uiy mind'i eye. However much the water
inay be iroicn by its dash over the rocks, an
opposite effect is produced upon Rochester; for
the falls have been the fmiking of the city;

river banks, which are all now as busy milling
away, s were Hcenan and Savers, when the
championship of the prize ring was at stake.
Here Sam Patch lost his life, not from too
much water, for he had previously successfully
leaped Niagara, but from too much whisky I It
iq well Ho hester was not in the British domin
ions or its worthy Mayor misrht have received
on the occasion 'of Sam Patch's last leap, a
.scolding letter from her Majesty, as the Mayor
of Birmincham lately did, on occasion 01 tne
fatal accident which oc"urred there to a female
- Blondin, while performing in the public gardens.
A post mortem examination of her body reveal-
ed the fact that there was a death involving two
live', which made the matter doubly shocking
to her Majesty.
Rochester is noted for many celebrities. Here
Fred Donglass drives his carriage and fine fast
liorses, with an air as if he were a genuine
Abyssinian Prince, instead of an American citi
zen of African descent. The Misses Fox here
first set the world agog by mysterious spiritual
wrappings. What has now become of these
ladies, I could not learn; perhaps they have
changed their names, as ladies have a way of
doing, and lost their cunning, or changed their
' base, as did the old original Rappites who set
tled in Indiana, under old Rapp their prophet;
tmt that was so long ago, you cannot, my dear
Mr. Editor, recollect it, ss you probably were
not then even an infant. The Rappites sold out
their village to old Robert Owen, who changed
the name to New Harmony, as the Rappites had
ouarreled so incessantly as to break up their as
sociation; then the Society became Owenites,
yet the councils do not seem to have kept ac
cord with the new name of the village which
now wears a very dilapidated and theiftless
look. Still, if you ' may trust the opinions ex
pressed by merchants' collectors, who visit that
TCgion to "get their little bills settled, there are
many otriny ties left in the Wabash valley.
A quarter ol a century ago, when first I visit
ed Rochester, the great channel of trade and
travel was the canal: the trreat attraction to
visitor, was the wild and picturesque beauty
the scenery around the lal Is. ftow, who wouia
think of traveling by ranal ? who would look
the picturesque in those huge unsightly mius
and races, that rob the falls not only of its water,
but even of ita roar 1 while the verdant banks
and lovely banging trees and shrubs, are gone;
converted into mill sites, or other unsightly
purposes. Ent let us take consolation iu
busy prosperity of the city, with its unceasing
whirr of machinery, buzz of happy people, and
the constantly recurring clang of the locomo
tive bells, givini notice of the arrival and de
parture of nightly railroad trains from, and
every point of the c-omass.
A pleasant ride by rail of six or eight miles,
takes you to the mouth of the Geuessee river,
where 'steamers touch, and a love lysail on Lake
rOntario can be enjoyed. The trip to Ogdens-
T burg, or Alexapdria Hay is very attractive

XENIA, July 13, 1863.
EniToes Settixel : As I am merely a er
on in Greene Couut y, J do not propose to in
dulge much in things locally political, but to fire
a few random (not Roderick," because I never
read that book, nor any other written by Dr.
Win. Fielding, ol Shelby Connty,) shots at men
and thin-rs in general- Preparatorily, Messrs.
Editors, I would state that this communication
is upon niv own individual responsibility, and
that i do not wish, unnecessarily, to wound the
feelings of a solitary Union individual. ( The
Union men in this region are not very solitary
A NEW PAPER—VALLANDIGHAM.
Owing to some pressure around the Court
house (as often happen",) there seems to be
tome tittit disaffection in the rauks of the uncon
ditional (?) Unionists, and some gentleman of
nerve have resolved to start a new paper a lo
cal ncws.er, advocating John Rrough, John
F. Patton, (for the Senate). Dr. Spahr, (for Rep
resentative) ; opposin!; Court-house Cliques and
monopolies ; lauding Charley Anderson and
Andy Johnson, Benjamin Franklin JJutler, Na
thaniel P. Banks, Generals Ulysses S. Grant,
Rosecrans, Gilinore (and Brotlierton) not for
gettingto award a Meade of praise to the nnas-1

owing, doubtless, to his being Su ne.irhis"South

eth "muchly as follows : ;

I am getting away from tne Observatory Hill,
where I started from, and forgetting the Senti

your readers may be interested to know why 1
started from Olservatory Hill. Well, it wus be
cause I imagined, while upon that celebrated
activity, which will remain ever-glorious when
coupled with the name of General Mitchell, that
with an astronomical eye, I could "see nd be

night hideous a little further N orili even so far
North as the Clifton House, Nigara Falls ! Go
over the Falls, Clem., and take a drink a la
"Doesticks;" take another and another, and
then another; get dead drunk, and .then learn
to be decent and loyal to your Mother (Hamil

Father of Waters'.) and unto your glorious Un
cle (U. S. Grant). Or, if you prefer to enjoy
yourself in a different "spear," get aboard the
British Lion," and in company with "Uncle
Jeff," go to Tennerifie and jua p overboard ; or
to Aetna, and take a little m re of the "cra

the Montezumas; or to HalUax, or the other
placet "Vou pays your money, and you takes
your choice, my little dear !" Oh, Yal., how do
you like "British gold," now ! Good-by, old
fellow ! Keep cool up at the North Pole.
YELLOW SPRINGS—THE CLIFFS.
"We Southerners," gentlemen, are not all of
us aware of the beauties in Nature as demon
strated in some things in old Greene. Yellow
Springs is quite common to us, of course ; but
to strangers, it is, on the contrary, quite the re
verse. 1 never was much ou the descriptive,
and, hrncely, will not try to picture this paradise
on earth. My dearly' beloved invalids! go up

As I look at that Shaksperian quotation, I
rather don't think General Paul ever used the

to the above. The literal wonls of Dumas.
"the past the past that wretched, damned
past comes o'er me like a pall," I think will
suit Coppcrhesded political aspirants "when this
cruel war is over," and sooner than that, if "we"
are in the slightest degree prophetic :

SPRING VALLEY—CAMP MEETING.
There was an immense concourse
at the Clear Spring Camp-meeting on Sunday.
The Camp-ground is situated in a South-wester-Is
direction from "the Yalley," on a "gentle ele
vation," with beautiful hills on both sides of the
immense basin of "springing corn." It is like
(that is, the valley and hills are, especially in
the morning,) the' first blush of womanhood
exceedingly lovely ! On Tuesday, Bro. John
W. Weaklsv, electrified the audience with a
masterly exhortation. It was good to be there !
Many "big guns" were in the pulpit among
them. Rev. Col. Granville Moody but I had no
time to hear more of them.
Arbitrary Arrests in Xenia—Habeas

such traitors and rebels as the "Old Serpent,"

(From the Cincinnati National Union.)
No onewho has watched the signs of the times
but mustheconvinced that the rebellion isabout
on its last legs. Lei's failure in Pennsylvania
for it was a failure, notwithstanding he was per
mitted to escape with a large amount of plun
der the scattering of Bkauu's army in Tennes
see, the taking of Yicksburg and Port Hudson,
all these brilliant affairs have struck terror to
the heart of the rebellion, aud the independence
of the so-called Confederacy is looked upon, as
a myth. We want no better evideuce of this
than the quarrels which are now going on be
tween the leaders of the rebellion and the public
journals. Davis is denounced publicly in the
Richmond papers lor his manner of conducting
the war, and particularly for permitting Missouri
to fall into the hands of' the Yankees, which, it is
alleecd, mieht have been prevented had Phice
instead of Holmks been allowed to lead their ar
mies to battle. While we are hopeful the Reb
els are cast down, and in or.e or two cf the
States which they still control, the people are
loud in their demands for peace, and are profess
iii2 their willingness to return to their allegiance.
They are tired of the war which has thus far
01. y tended to impoverish them, and decimate
their numbers. The leaders declare the people
in certain sections are gointr mad. and are de
generate Southerners. The leaders are becom
ing alarmed, and soon they themselves wiil de
sert the rotten Confederacy, and llee like rats
from a sinking ship. Their ship of state, igno
ble craft, will go down to the bottom like a dead
weicht,,aud the waves will roll over it, and
nothing be lett to mark the place where it went
With the exception of Lee's and Johnson's
armies, and the forces under Beaiukgap-d, at
Charleston, we know of no organized Rebel
force. Their legions have been scattered, their
troops disbanded or taken captive and now swell
the ranks of our prisoners, save those whose
bones are whitening the plains of the sunny
South, or being rattled together on the hills vis
ited by the breezes of the North. The Rebels
no more think of invasion: but turn their atten
tion to the best manner of preventing themselvse
from being invaded. They have given over all
hope of retaining the border slave Suites, and
look with distrust -upon all promises of aid and
comfort from the traitors of- the Northwest.
" Maryland, my Maryland," has long since been
looked npon as a sealed book to the rebellion,
while the. late elections throughout the "dark
and bloody ground " have forever given the lie
to the assertion that Kentucky was at heart with
the Confederacy of Jkfp. Davis aad his thieving
associates. Our prisoners outnumlier theirs by
thousands, and they now dare not wreak their
vengeance oa those" doomed to death in Libby
Frison. lest the breasts of the scions of Southern
chivalry should be pierced by the bullets of
Northern soldiery. 1 he Rebels are nice rats
caught in their holes, with the exterminator
about to be noDlied. Thev know not which way
to turn, for on every hand there is danger of
rum-iing against a soldier's bayonet or meeting
the unerring iuinie. They will soon be com
pelled to lay down their arms, and return to their
allegiance, and when that day comes, and the
time arrives "when this cruel war is over," how
then will appear our home traitors those who
have given aid and encouragement to the rebel
lion tho-0 who would have sold their country
like Esau did his birthright, for less than a mess
of pottage? How will they look in that day
when peace is proclaimed throughout the land?
Where will Clement L. A a l l a n n i o n a si and his
worthy compeer "glorious George E. Pigh,"
stand on thatday those gentlemen who are for
peace on any terms, who would not give one
cent nor one man to the prosecution of the war?
Will they be ranked among the true friends of
the country, or Bill thev not rather be looked
upon as Abnolpb traitors to -the land which
pive-them birth? We cannot praise traitors
though they have tongues ttiat wouni wneeuie
the devils in hell, and voices like angels, attuned
to eloquence sublime and pathos unapproach
able their hearts are vile, aud their lips utter
lies by day and by night. The people will have
notion? to do with them nor their false doctrines,
for they know that nothing but-evil can come
from those who would sell their country to ti e
dealers in flesh and blood the bloated aristo
crats of a debased and degenerate South. The

come to the conclusion to put a stop to the per
ambulations through the streets and alleys of
our beautiful little city of the 'Sswiuey tribe.
Now, tho only thing that suggests itself to my
mind is, what will become ol all the tilth ami
slops that are cast away into our alleys? Will
it be made he special duty of our Marshal to
see that our alleys are kept clean, and th
already hog-wallows tillod tip? If so, thoy have
done a good work. But if there is not a stop
to the filthy practice of pouring slops, &c, into
our streets and alleys, thev had better not shut

LEAVENWORTH, August 22.
From citizens of Lawrence who
for supplies and medicines, I have gathered the
following particulars regarding the burning of
that city bv Quantreli. The list of killed aud
wounded, nuinliers some hundred and eighty,
the majority of whom were killed instantly.
Names cannot all be given now, however. The
houses that remain standing are filled with killed
and wounded of all classes. From the ruins -of
burned houses, the charred remains oi other vic
tims are constantly being found. :
But one- hotel is standing, Quantrell having
spared it iu consequence of his having his home
there some years since without expense, hut its
proprietor was shot.
, Among the most prominent citizens the fol
lowing are kiurwn to have been killed: Gen.
G. W. Callamore, the Mayor of the city and his
son, J.G.Lowe, Josiah Teask, S. P. Thorp,
Dr. Griswold, James Eldrige, James Perrine,
Col. Stone, two brothers Gill, A. W. Griswold,
Frederick Kimball, Thos. Murphy, John Spear,
three brothers Dix, Addison Waugh, Duncan
Allison, George Burt, Judge Carpenter, Rev.
M. Snvder, August Ellis. Lemuel Fillmore,
Dewight Coleman. Lewis Swan, R. Loomis,
J no. Crane, Levi Gates, two brothers Range, !
John Evan?, G. W. Bell, Messrs. Keeth, Brown,
Dalec, Twitch, Palmer, Sargent Delinski, Al
bock, Powers, Brant.
These were killed instantly most of them in
their own houses with their wives and children
clinging to them, while their murderers placed
pistols to their bodies and sliot them.
The following were mortally wounded: Jo
seph Eldridge, Mr. Baker, (firm of Ridenour
and Baker,) Mr. Williamson, Geo. Holt, T. F.
Hawson and W. S. R. Lykins.
Iu one case the guerrillas drove twelve men
into one house and siiot them, and then burned
the building. The inhabitants fled into ravines
and bushes and the fiends stood on the banks
and fired into them killing and wounding scores.
Seventy-five negro recruits were shot. They
took all the money that could lie found out of
the pockets of citizens or from houses stole all
the ladies' jewelry, even to the rings on their
Gen. James Lane escaped on horseback and
rallied about two hundred men, who with arms
followed and overtook Quantrell twelve miles
south of Lawrence, where a fight occurred, but
the result is unknown.
Quantrell is now retreating towards Missouri,
burning everything on his route. It's not ex
pected he will be intercepted by our forces, and
will probably get away without loss.
There was no resistance made at Lawrence,
the people being shot down as they ran through
the streets in their night-clothes, and their
bodies thrown into wells and cisterns.
The citizens had been expecting such a raid
from the threats Quantrell had made, and
had organized military companies for defense
part of whom had been under arms constantly,
but from assurances that Quantrell would not
invade Kansas their organizations were aban
doned and the guerrillas found thero entirciy
A large train left hereto-day with supplies of
clothing, provisions, kc, for sufferers. The
citizens of Leaven north have opened their doors
to all who choose to come. Many have availed
themselves of these hospitalities and will be well
cared for. The feeling among citizens here is
very bitter against the Commanders of this
Department and district, lor being so wholly un
prepared to meetsuch an emergency. The Com
manding General was absent from Headquar
ters and did not know of the invasion until the
destruction of Lawrence was complete. Every
thing was done, however, in regard to the move
ments of troops to intercept and capture Quan
trell, but it was too late.
Our State authorities are now taking the mat
ter in their hands. Col. Jennison uaa been re
instated in command of a new Kansas regiment,
and is about starting down the border with suffi
cient troops to overcome any force the enemy
can bring against him, and if he is not interfered
with by commanding officers, raids into Kansas
will ond with the present one-
Quantrcll's forces aro'principally those bands
of guerrillas who have been robbing and mur
dering along the border for the past six months,
with but little opposition, and have had ample
time to prepare everything that would insure
success. They are probably now safe in Mis
souri with their pluuder and quietly at their
homes as good Union citizens.
The loss at Lawrence is not less than two
millions, and will fall heavily on New York and
Leavenworth merceants. Two banks were
robbed of every dollar. Others escaped only
because the heat was so great the Rebels could
not get tlie vaults open.

The following account is from the pen of Mr
Chas. C. Fulton, editor of the Baltimore American:
FLAGSHIP DINSMORE, August 18.
Tbe attack on Sumter commenced at day
break yesterday morning by the siege batteries
of Gen. Gilmore, and the naval battery on the
shore. At six o'clock. Admiral Daltrrehn pro.
ceeded on board the Weehawken and witb the
Ironsides and the entire monitor fleet attacked
batteries Wagner and Gregg, with great fury,
completely silencing Wagner and almost silenc
ing Gregg. The wooden gunboats seven in
number, ulso joined in tlie assault and enabled
all of the shore batteries to pour their shot and
shell into Sumter.
At 10 o'clock the'Admiral changed his flag to
the Passaic, and, with the Patapsco, proceeded
to within about 1,500 yards of Sumter, and
shelled the sea-wall with the rifled guns of those
vessels, for about au hour, with marked effect.
Sumier fired about fifty return shots, doing no
damage to the vessels'wuile the wall of Sum
ter was badly scarred.
Fleet Captain, George W. Rodgers took com
mand of the Catskill, and went up within 150
yards of the beach front of Battery Wagner.
After firing a number of shot, a shot from Fort
Wagner broke a piece of the interior lining,
which struck on the head of Commodore Rod
eers. killinsr him aa well as -paymaster Wood
bury, n-ho was standing at his side. Both of
their heads were split open. These were the
only persons injured, on land or water, during
the six hours' engagement.
1 he damage done to Sumter by the sietre bat
teries of Gen. Gilmore is visible without the aid
of a glass. The rebels had erected a false wall
against the wall exposed to our batteries, it
extended to within ten feet of the top of the
wall, over forty feet high and ten feet thick, and
this wall is now a mass of ruins, while the old
wall is bored full of deep holes, the parapet
crushed and ragged, and the northwest corner is
gashed and cracked down almost to the water's
1 he harbor and btono nver are nllea with tor
pedoes. About a dozen of them have been
picked up in the Stono. One was exploded
under the Patapsco, raising her a foot out of tlie
water, but doing her no harm. None of the
vessels were injured in the least, and tlie Admi
ral and his officers are confident in the ability of
the monitors to batter down Sumter. He is,
however, anxious to save the vessels for the
heavy work required of them after Snmter is
taken, and to let the army reduce Sumter if
I be fleet except the W eehawken and A ahant,
all retired at 2 P. M., but they remained to keep
Wagner silent during the afternoon and prevent
the remounting of guns. The shore batteriea
continued firing all the afternoon and night, on
the wall of Sumter with good effect. This
morning the batteries are steadily at work, the
Weehawken and Passaic are keeping batteries
Wagner and Gregg silent, and up to nooq when
the Arkansas sailed, the remainder of the fleet
were lying at their moorings, lien. Gilmore an
nounced that the work thus far has been entire
ly satisfactory, that the fort is greatly damaged
and the work progressing finely.
Admiral Dahlgreen is much depressed by the
loss of fleet Capt. Rodgers, but is highly grati
fied with the operations ot tbe fleot and army,
aad very hopeful of ultimate success.
The Arkansas iuu tne fleet at seven o clock:
Wednesday morning. At that time huge vol
umes of smoke were seen issuing from Sumter,
as if from the burning of cotton, and the officers
of the Arkansas believe the fort would be cap
tured, or entirely destroyed by noon. Her guns
were replying feebly to ours.
f ort Gregg hi.d been entirely silenced.
Wagner still held out.
The bombardment continued without cessa
tion during Tuesday night, and was renewed
Wednesday morning, and when the Arkansas
left, the firing was furious, the Ironsides, five
monitors and the shore batteries being all en
gaged. Two relugeestrom savannah, named J. Uoi-

Colonel Wilder crossed the Tennessee river

view of the common roads, this is an important
affair. He secured the ferryboat and two bar

It was the burning of tliis bridge which was
thought to be the destruction of the steamer

Your readers will doubtless see the speeches,

daily pipers, hut I cannot refrain from adding
an extract from General Hovey's letter

"A word in regard to property of Rebels. In
my opinion, they have forfeited all, and their
wealth should be so used as to prevent a repeti

lands, as far as practicable, divided among our
soldiers who have nobly sustained the Govern
ment in the hour of its trial. I hare spoken
thus freely of the policy that I think should be
pursued, for these are tle questions upon which
tho people will soon be called to act."
