From the Keokuk Gate City, June 1st.
An Interesting Scene.
The infant belonging to the Mahaska
Grays, stationed in Fifth street, was tho means
of bringing , about a singular coincidence
ad so affecting scene. The Davenport
Artillery Company is quartered in the ad
joing building,, and have the pleasure of
possessing one of the tallest men iu the
ranks. His height is six feet four and a
half inches, they challenged bin size against
any the Mahaska boys could produce ; but
when their "infant" was trotted out, the
latter beat him by one-fourth of an inch.
Wheeler Chad wick is the name of this
towering individual. It aoems, however,
that Mahaska can brag on tall men gener
ally; and at the moment Chadwick had
measured, a private of the same company,
named Win. A. Orville, stepped out and
placed himself back to back with the Da
venport champion, saying, that probably lie
could size him. no did ; and turning
around to ask his opponent's name, he at
once recognized him to be a long lost broth
er, and whom he had not seen since 1851,
when at his wedding in Madison, Indiana.
In a moment tbey were in each other's
arms, and their feelings can be imagined
better than we can describe tbem. They
had not beard of each other since that sepa
ration until at this happy moment. The
letter's name is J. G. Orville a bookbind
er by trade; he has worked in this city in
Mr. Pierce's bindery, and is well known to
a great many of our citizens. He has late
ly lived in Davenport. . .
Such is life. Here are two brothers, af
ter years of absence, brought together by
their eagerness to serve their country.
They are Virginians by birth, but of that
stock which never proves false to the flag
of their country. ,
Prisoners Fugitive Slaves and Prizes at
A letter received from in officor of the
Thirteenth New York Regiment, dated at
Annapolis on Friday, stales that Colonol
Smith has taken 750 muskets from the
Secessionists in Maryland, and that ho in
tends to capture all the arms hld by rebels
in tho vicinty of his camp. Five fugitive
slaves, who had fled from iheir masters in
Princess Anne county, had also beon ro-'
ceivod by the Colonel. Throe schooners
loaded with corn had boon brought into
Annapolis as prizes, and six prisoners of
war bad been brought in by suouting par
ties from Virginia. ' '
Ex-Governor Pratt was htill hold ns a
prisoner of war and was required to report
daily to Colonol Smith.
Another writes: "Gov. Hicks is workiug
like a true Union roan with Col. Smith,
and important moves are made every day.
A Congressman has just been arrested and
invited to swear over his allegiance to the
Government, which he very wisely conclud
ed to do. We captured 87 muskets yes
terday, and expect to get 80 or 90 raoro
this week from the citizens, who have thorn
secreted. Some of them were loaded, but
our boys make them "go off" in the right
direction. ' ' . " " .
We also got two rebel flags and a few
prisoners. The effect of our vigilsnt watch
over this district is doing a great deal for
tho country, and particularly the manner
in which.we have protected the slaveholders
in their locomotive property. They now
understand that the Northern army stands
by the Constitutions . ' ' -';
.. Gus Peyton, one of ours, has been down
to Fort Monroe, and thence to Fort Mo
Henrv, carrying dispatches for Col. Smith
and Gun. Butler, and was the means of ar
resting a Baltimore spy, ' playing Secretary
in old Monroe.. . That rascal found bis lib
erty stopped in short ordor, : .. -i . ' . v
Important Movement of Western Troops.
- The Chicago Journal of the 6th states
that two Illinois regiments have just been
moved to Cario, and that seven Iowa and
Wisconsin regiments are under orders for
tho same destination. Six Illinois regi
ments now encamped In various parts of the
state are to be formed into a Brigade and
quartered at Decatur, the junction of the
Illinois Great Western and the Chicago,
and St. Louis Railroads, to be in readiness
for a grand forward movement. 2 The Jour
nal says :
These movements of Western troops are
no doubt preparatory to the advance of the
I great military expedition down the Missis
I sippi Valley, which has been determed up-
ou. Large bodies move slowly, and this
expedition may not therefore be ready to
move forward for some days to come per
haps it will require two or throe weeks be
fore this Grand Army of the West will be
fully prepared for so important an advance.
In the meantime, toe regiments ot Indi
ana and Ohio will soon be concentrated
and got into condition to loin this great
expedition, and the Urand Army wben m
readiness, will move forward in two great
divisions one by the river and the other
by land, sweeping down upon the rebels of
Tennessee with a force that will crush trea
son at one fell stroke. This, we learn, is
the plan of the Summer campaign in the
West. - ',
Last year the Enfield factory turned out
The Soldiery at Grafton.
The Grafton Virginian says:
! Ylio inurcb of I ho United Stales troops
down the hill into our town yesterday, aside
from tho emotion of. gladness which filled
every heart to overflowing, was, to us here
in these secluded mountain", where the like
was never4seen before, a most magnificent
sight. . Marching in solid columns down
the slope with the strictest, military, preci
sion, their burnished arms glittering itr (be
sunlight, it was a grand and imposing spec
tacle. . . , ' - '-
. The true gentlemanly bearing, loo, of
the officors and soldiery, as they - mingle
with our citizens when off duty, is worthy
of the highest commendation, If tho qo
tiro American army is made of such mate
rial as these few hundreds, tho Government
may well bo proud of her citizen soldiery.
Well may we say. that our Government
is the strongest ,in tbtf -world, ,while such
men as these wiU so cheerfully' "rush to her
aid in times like this. - " '-
Secession "Squelched" at Parkersburg.
A correspondent who accompanied the
Ohio troops in their recent descent upon
Parkersburg, states that the Union men
were completely frantic with joy on seeing
thorn. Some of the secessionists had given
out word that 60,000 men could, not land
there, but wben the Ohio No. 8 rounded to,
with her decks, guards and roof black wjtb
Hue coats, not a scoundrel was seen. , They
marched to the beautiful bill back of town,
and prepared to encamp, J. J. Jackson,
the same who figured so conspicuously . in
his opposition to Mr. Carlisle, in the. Wheel
ing Convention, and whom many bolievo to
be secessionist at heart, complained a good
deal of the troops because they trampled
down the grass ! The occupation of Par
kersburg by the United States troops- has
put a complete, extinguisher on ' secession
there, and -now tho people seem as earnest
in their devotion to tbe Union as any in the
Th . Military . Gknius or PaxsiDstrr
Davis. Tho Louisville Journal thinks that
Jefferson Davis, as a military leader, hatr
proved a failure. The editor says:' Un
questionably Jeff. Davis, as the head of the
military operations in the South,, has sig
nally failed to fulfill Southern expectation.
The enthusiastic confidence that was felt in'
him is fast' dying out. - All the glowing
predictions as to what he would do have in
rapid succession been falsified. - His let
devotees have been looking daily for great
results from all bis military movements, but
they see nothing. This will never do no,
never. If Jeff, doesn't startle his cotton
State friends very soon, perhaps they will
startle bim. - -
He has only signalized himself since the
cotton States set up for themselves by inau--,
gnratiog a system of wholesale piracy, and
issuing a few letters of marque to despera
does who have nothing to loose, in the en
terprise on which they are about to enter.-.
- Gen. Gideon J. Pillow, we are told, sent ,
bis respects tbe other day, to ' General -Combs,
with the information, that be. in
tended , very soon to pay him s visikei
Frankfort, to whieb tbe General promptly .
replied: "Tell him to call and take break-;
fast with O. Prtnlut at Cairo, and then
visit me, sad . I will give - him quiet
lodging for tbe eight and as late as ha
pleases next morning." Louisville Journal.
