fuiDAT Morning, Jilt 3, 1SC3.
The Rebels have fallen back from
Ilarrisburg and York, fallowed up by j ue mmmw ui u

Carlislc with little loss, :5d inst. j vaoce of the Union Army of the Potomac,

the Rebel out of Hanover. i Bcynolda,) coming from the Sooth East,
a lltli corps, unaur ivcytioius ana
Howard, met the Rebels under 1J ill

check, and our 3d and 12th corps co
ining to their aid under Mead.
We lost Gcn.s Reynolds and Taul,
killed Col.s rftono" and Wister (of
150th IV.) wounded and prisoners.
An engagement between Mead and

enough looking for a Rebel was nabbed
by oor volunteers, near Mifflinburg, last
Thursday, and taken down to Ilarrisburg :
lie was tha first prisoner captured in Ruff
aloe Valley duriog the war, and if he was
"spying out tbe laod," be haa missed it.
javCapt. Thomas Church , (from Read
ing yesterday) informs ns that tbe New
Berlin and Mifflinburg Company was fully
organized under Capt. Roush Dr. Rurg,
1st Lieut., and Wm.T.Haycs, 2d Lieut.
Finding himself unable to stand the
doty, Capt. Church declined the command
of the Old Hartley Company, when Wm
F.Wilson was chosen ; Henry Klapp, 1st
Lieut; John Glover, 2d Lieut.
Each Company wants 8 to 10 men to
fill up. Capt. Church will taks down,
Monday next, any one, disposed to join
cither company, who may report to him.

najsNearly every day, some victim of
tbe recent Rebel ravaging of the Cumbcr
berlaod Valley, may ba seen working
northward for safety the whites to
secure their property and avoid excite
ment, and the blacks to save themselves
and families from being kidnapped. Such
are the sad fruits of Slavery and Rebellion,
whioh do oo good, but do incalculable

Saturday, 4tb inat., it is stated the Reb
els began a retrograde movement. It is
expected that Couch and tha Militia will
press them from the North. If (as repor
ted) tbe Potomac has risen considerably
by late rains, Lee's Army may be out off
and captnrcd, or dispersed.
These battles were tbe most sanguin
ary shock of arm a our continent ever saw,
or perhaps tbe world since Wsterloo.

in others. Iougal and Evans were in lit
Corps,which suffered most. Thoe who In
this crisis full, were in tbe noblest cause,
en a field that may decide the Gigantic
Struggle of the Age between Liberty and
fcaTMij. John D. Mosser wrote, Thurs
day, that he had escaped with his hone
killed and a scratch .on one leg, but he
feared Maj. Jiiomas Cuamberlin was
among tbe many slain on Wednesday.
His name does not appear in the list yet
published. Rut if he is taken, no more

For tha Sick and Wounded.
Hundreds of Farmers in Union and
other eounties have given nothing to aid
thosa whose toil and blood have saved
their bonsra and farms from the blight of
war that has ruined thousands of farms
and plantations elsewhere. Tbey have
paid Taxes well and freely. Rut there
are many comforts, luxuries and favors
furnished by Sanitary Commissions,
which are almost essential, and always
grateful to those brava men every one of
whom should be dear to us as onr own
families. The recent battlea must bave
left many thousands who will need aid ;
some bave friends, and some have not.
The Sanitary Commission look especially
after the friendku and poor. .They want
Cotton and flannel shirts and drawers,
suitable for the eick and wounded:
woolen socks ; some dressing gowns,
slippers, handkerchiefs ; bandages, 1 to 4
inches wide and 1 to 6 yards long, when
pieced the raw edges to lay over each
other flat; clothing for men, and bed
clothes in general. No lint is needed. -
Also arrowroot, farioa, eorostsreb, &e ;
jellies and domestie wines of all kinds ;
dried and canned fruit of all kinds; pick
les, onions, beans ; syrups aod butters of
all kinds. JNo bread, cakes or meat.
ea.Among our refugees from Seccsh,is
a colored family of known good character
who siy they were advised to leave, from
near Carlisle, by a leading Democrat, and
were a week on the jonrney, bringing
nothing but the clothes they had on, their
Bible, and a few rood books. A child of
j fivo ye "lked H the way, and a boy
nf .i.:.,,,- .:.j
a babe. Tbev onlv
asked work, although almost famished,
and all eagerly embraced every chance to
labor. Aootber aaid that some one mis
directed tbem, to that they went ten miles
oat of their way, almost into tbe Rebels'
hands, when a friend set them right. A
woman left her husband working in tbe
eulrenchmcots and both agreed to die
rather than become slave. All want to
return u tooa as they safely can.
Will Blacks fight fir Liberty ?
flr. James D. Strawbridirs has a float-
ing hospital which was at Millikeos Rend
when the recent fight occurred in which
our colored troop showed an unaurpssaed
valor. He says :
My boat lay about three miles from the
battle field, aud after it was over some of
my men went op. There lay tbe dead
rebel and the nogro in the ditch, each
with his bayonet thro tbe other. Many
of the rebels lay with tbuir skulls broken
by the butt of the negro's musket. Io tbe
ditch alone ware counted 41 rebels and 33
negroes. Tbe whole number of dead was
100 of oh. We received In our boapital
114 wounded men frem the negro rrgim
ent, soma of thorn being while officers.
One negro had four bayonet and three
j bttet . eTert, Afn Ujowi
wound?, and a number severe wounds from
the butts of guns. There were a great
many very bad gunshot wounds. Many
of the slightly wounded eonld hardly be
kept in the Hospital. They said, " Dors' e
main tn hm annilpr fiifhf. an T vanta hank to
the regiment I oan do some fire." These
negroes bad just been armed a few days
before the fijbt, and many of them had
new shot off a gun before."
tg-Several thousand citizens who re
paired to Ilarrisburg when thedaoger was
most imminent, (some of them armed, and
ready for service,) refused to be sworn in
for a term discretionary with tbe Govern
or. Many or these sre good aud true men,
but their age end strength they deemed
ntterly inadequate to a long campaign, or
their business at borne would not allow a
long stay, although they were willing to
risk any toil or danger for a short period.
Some (as in every Company) might have
proved worthless on trial. Tbe Don tn
listers from our county who remained,
paid "Locbiel" a visit had a 4th of July
celebration aod each returns as be j udges
tbe "emergency" permits.
ISB.Last Wednesday, Gen. W. F.
Smith's foroe (with whom are Forests and
Sborklay's meo) entered Caslisle. There
was a Rebel force near, under Gen. Lee,
who demanded the surrender of tbe town,
or they would shell it. Tbe Union ofhoers
said they would die first. Tbe same even
ing tbe Rebels did shell the town, burn
ins; the barracks, gas work, &e., but
killing no one we believe. Next day tbe
enemy retired towards Gettysburg.

Ait Advance. Tbe Army of the Cum

series of important forward moves, driving
Brsgg's army before tbem nearly 30
miles, whipping them in nearly every en-

and the Rebels rally around Tnllahoma.

to fill the demand npon Union county for

more went down for independent service.
So that Union county has more than filled
ber quota of organized volunteer. Let
other counties do likewise, and the State
will be safe.

The Company composed of New Rerlin
ians and Mifllioburgers arrived safely at
Harrisburg about 10 minutes after 5
o'clock P. M., Jane 30. We got immedi
ate notice that we bad on the same evening
to go to Reading. The equipments aod
armaments bad from . Harrisburg bean
removed to Reading, for fear tbe Rsbs
might nab those things. So we left II.,
after dark, and came to Reading, about
one o'clock. Marched to tie point of our
destination, called "Camp Iliester." We
foond there some improvements originally
made for the accommodation of artillery
horses, excollsot pasture, ia. When i
we found ourselves turned into Ihe above
described pasture by Uncle Sam, I regret
ted very much that I had not taken along
my poor cow, which is put on half rations
by my absence.
Mueh hilarity prevailed among our men,
who made tbe best of it. The moon
illuminated our eamps most romantically,
and helped us to make some progress ia
tbe study of practical philosophy. It is
indeed wonderful bow little mankind ab
solutely needs to be content. There we
were, lying on tbe bare ground, only a
few having blankets. Myself was one of
the majority. I called out that I would
take a partner for the night, if he would
bring a blanket into the concern ; no
other capital atock was demanded ; but
my call was in vain. A few minutes after,
I got in possession of a blanket which
belonged to my townsman, B., who had
left the cars at Hummelstowa to look
after bis wife. This turned out to be very
advantageous to myself, and I soon found
a partner from Mifflinburg.
Perhaps you are not acquainted with
the fact that I am a little inclined to
superstition. I think it therefore sot
amiss to tell you about my first dream in
Ibis camp. It was, that I dreamed I was
elected, by a large majority, fer ihe first
Lieuteoantcy. Yon may easily imagine
that I felt net a little elevated. (I mast

greatest trouble in translating that little
into English, over the viaduct of the Ger

bered most distinctly that there were other
aspirants dreaming about tbe same object,
i. e. "first Lieutenancy." As the matter
stands, I bsve given up the thing, com
forting myself with the vague idea, that
perhaps a Corporalship may become my
lot. If so, what is tbe difference? Is
there not a corporal on the first steps on
the ladder which leads to the highest
But, seriously spoken, if the eitizens
continue to follow the course a great part
of them bars taken, snrs we will lose
every vestige of Liberty, and American
liberty will beeome a by-word used by
ovary aristocrat who undertake to trample
on ataman rights.
