Letter from the Twenty-Seventh Maine. HEArXjl'ARTKKS -'"tu Μ κ., I Camp Chantilly, Va., April Χ, 1803. ) To Lhe Editor of the Prêta: You hare long ere this concluded, doubtless, that my correspondence does not anioiiut to much any way. But my long silence must be attributed both to a lack of tTine and a lack of new*. I would not Inflict long prosaic essays upon tou, as I know well that you lacked not for news. Well, to come to business at once, we have moved our quarters. We left Camp Gen. Caaey at 7 o'clock a. m. the 24th ult. We had been encamped there since Dec. 31st, '(52, making nearly three months. We abandoned our picket line also, leaving it to garrison it •elf. Doubtless It will be seen to. We were ordered in company with the 25th and other regiments making up Casey'» division, for ward ; for our destination rumor assigned Chan tilly. We marched aboat 10 miles the tlrst day, and carried our loads οΓ shelter tents, blanket·, knapsacks, <fcc., and bivouacked at night, with shelter tenta for a covering, in a driving rain storm, about two miles below Fairfax Court House in a hard wood growth. We slept as well as men could be expected to, who lie in from two to four inches of water all night. The next morning at il o'clock stiff and jaded, we resumed oar march, and Dually reached our prMeat cainp ground six miles below Fairfax, and twenty-three from Wash ington about mid day, thoroughly knocked up. We had grown fat and iazy in cainp, 1 take it, which made our burdens hard. We are at present encamped in a forest of pines and hard wood growth, the 28th having the right, and we the left of the encampment, forming a brigade under the command of Col. Fessenden. Both regiments occupy the ex treme right of the division, and of course the post of danger. The 25th have shelter tents, officers and men alike, while we have the Sib leys we occupied at Camp Lincoln, making us rather more comfortable quarters. Oar shel ter tents are for the present held in abeyance. We could be quite comlortable here would the weather allow, but the "sunny south" is a sad misnomer. March has been an uncom monly stormy month; for "Down East" never excelled iu cold this month. The month com menced with a cold rain, and ended yesterday as spitefully as possible with a damp, sleety snowstorm, some four inches of snow falling, and making the mud intolerable. There have been, I believe, seven rainstorms, as many of snow, and some eight unpleasant, squally days of snow and rain accompanied by thunder, etc., iu this rnout·*, while the remaiuder were windy and cold, not more than three pleasant days In March. April opens the ball well, al to. To-day is cdld, with a blustering wind, piercing to one's bones. Shall we ever see summer here ? Our camp is named from Chantilly farm, a short distance below, a fine tract of 1*X) acres, and boasting before the war a splendid house and fertile grounds. The house is now burn ed, and the land laid waste. The owner, a widow Stuart and family are, of course, se cesh. Centreville lies 3 miles to the south west of us, and is garrisoned by another of our Brigades. Hull Kun mountains are in lull view, 0 mile» down, and farther down, the peaks of the Blue Ridge. Bull Kun battle fields are eight miles below, and the location is to lie seen from "Chantilly House," Nearly a ■nile southwest of us is the battle-field of "Chantilly," fought Aug. 31, 1802, where the lamented Gens. Stevens and Kearney fell. * "Stonewall" Jackson marched a force of 40 000 up to within 3 or 4 miles of Fairfax, and encam|ied hereabouts four days, and then struck to the north by the way of Drainsville, Into flarylaiid. The field of Chantilly still exhibits tierce evidences of the fray. Protru ding legs and arms of Union soldiers are to l>e seen, carelessly buried, while the "rehs" are buried deep, and headstones mark their graves, proving they held the field. Hut 1 trust Jack son and his forty thousand have been here for the last time. I am getting prolix, however. Our regiment enjoys excellent health and no new cases of sickness from late exposure are reported, I believe. Both regiments are assisting the cavalry as pickets a unile or two below. The ubiquitous Capt. Mosely, of dash ing memory, (the same who captured Gen. Stoughton,) and hi· squad, keep the men In topic· sufficiently exciting. We may proba bly move farther down ere long. The men are in the best of spirit·, and grumble only when the supply of pork and hard bread falls short, or when obliged to carry their knapsacks longer than they deem reasonable, and we one and all, feel the utmost coutldence In our ultimate and speedy success. [ am glad to know that you lack not for friends in the courte you are pursuing. Fear not, falter not, though you expose yourself to a libel suit from both the "copperhead" sheets which defame and befoul the Forest City. Ma^rasoit. ' A Copperhead Demonstration. Mist Dickinson «poke In McDonough Hail, Middlet'jwn, on Thursday evening, to an im mense audience, and lor the first time in the •tale, she was interrupted by the party of mobs and violence. But it was losing game for the copperhead. Miss Dickinson had been speaking for half an hour, when suddenly the gas lights grew dim, and then went out, leaving the hall In per fect darkness. The audience generally remain ed quiet, but a few rowdies near the door be gan to shout and whistle and cat-call and make a disturbance. "I see," said Mis* Dickinson, calmly,"that there are those here whoevidently love darkness better than light because their deeds are evil." The light had been turned oil', by the copper heads, at the gas works, and it was at once discovered by the Workmen and turned on, so that in two or three minute·, tapers being ap plied to the burners, the hall was illuminated. As it was lieing lighted, the speaker, who was i entirely undisturbed, said : "I read my iiible. ! I read of the Prince of Darkness, and judging from the present display, eoinc of his children are present! (Laughter and great applause.) : I read natural history, too. I read of a creature , that loves caves and dens and holes ill the earth, 1 dank and dark places,—and I suppose from the last fact that some of them are 111 this hall,— copperheads, I believe they are called." (Criée | of "good" and tremendous cheering.) As the orator proceeded, cries of "(Ire, Are," ' were heard iu the street, a fire engine rattled down the pavement and stopped near the hall. (Cries in the house of"A copperhead trick.") A secesh woman In the hall screamed "tire" lit the top of her voice. The house refused to be disturbed by the dastardly artifice, but there was for a time some sensation, as the firemen were called for and it was said a barn bad been set on fire in another part of the city, but the trick was too transparent, and the speaker proceeded, calmly as before. She had hardly comcnceed when the cry of fire was repeated in the street and the passa ges of the hall and the hell near began to ring violently, so that It was difficult for the speak er to Ik· heard. On the platform behind Miss Dickinson sat Mr. Jenckes of Khode Island, the republican memlier of congress who bad ; been elected 011 Wednesday by an overwJiplm- ; ing majority. As the annoying bell continued to ring, the speaker turned and said, "I have ! l»een wondering why that hell was ringing. 1 ' suddenly bethink me. They are rejoicing | over the glorious victory in our sister state of | ! Khode Island, and showing due respect to the | man. elected by over 2000 majority, who hon- ! ore us by his presence to-night." (The audi ence. electrified, rose to Its feet, and cheered again and again for lihode Island.) And the speaker went on unmoved, the bell not chosing to ring any more for Ithode Island ! | But not many minutes had-elapwd, when the cry of fire was again heard at the door. The speaker paused, as if aiiery at this silly repe t'.tlon of rowdyism, and with face pale and eyes flashing, stepped forward, and leaning to wards the audience, cried : "Yes, there h a tire,—by God's grace we have kindled a fire, which these people by their act* are assisting, that will never go out, till naught Is left of the principles they pro ies*, or of their party,—save ashes." That was enough. The copperhead· slunk down abashed, the house cheered till the roof rang a rain, ami without further Interruption Miss Dickinson went 011 with her magnificent speech. The whole affair has wonderfully strength ened the Union cause in Middletown. The more respectable of the opposition party de clare they will have nothing to do with a par ty which so outrages decency and seeks to car- ■ ry It* ends by violence.—[Hartford Press, 4th.

Another verv bad Case of Fits cured by Mrs· Manchester. Thinking a statement of my case may be of some benefit to others similarly affected, I will give it to the public : Some years ago I was at tacked with spasms, and had them often ; final ly they became very hard Fits ; I would have them at any time and in any place, fchave been to a number of physicians, and all to no pur pose. I grew worse until I was almost unfit for any business. I came to the conclusion to call on Mrs. Manchester, through a friend's persua sion. I did call on her. She gave me a satis factory examination in every particular—she j told me that she could cure me, but that the pro cess would be slow. I commenced taking her medicine; the disease gradually lessened, no having the fits so often or as hard. Finally ray general health gained in the meantime, and for several months I have not had any of the fits, and can truly say that I think Mrs. Manchester has been my benefactor. For further particu lars call on me at my residence, 88 State street. M. T. Libby. Portland, Λογ. 10, 1802. One of thf» g re "test C ures on Record. Mrs. Manchester—Dear Madam :—Think ing a statement of my case may be of service to others similarly afflicted, I hasten to give it to j you. This is briefly my case—I was taken sick about 18 months ago with the Liver Complaint iu a very bad form. I applied to four different phy sicians, but received uo benefit uutil I called on you. At that time I had given up business, and was in a very bad state, but after taking your medicine for a short time I began to recover,and in two months I was entirely well, and had gain ed several pounds of flesh, and can truly say that by your skill I am a perfectly healthy man Boston if Maine Depot, Portland, Me. Liminotox, July 10th. This is to certify that I have been cured of Dyspepsia, Liver Complaint and Female Weak ness, by Mrs. Manchester, after I had been giv en up by twelve or fifteen physicians ; and when I commenced taking her medicine I was so weak that I could not bear the least food on my stom %ch; but in a very short time I began to recover, and have rapidly regained my health, and am now going on a long journey. I would heartily recommend all invalids to go and see her above all other physiciaus. Abby L. IIiugi.ns. I wish to Bay to the public generally that I called on Mrs. Manchester with a child of mine that had fits, and bad had them for five years; I carried him to a great number of physicians, but they all did him no good, and he finally grew worse. I took him to Mrs. M. ; she ίΜύ me what his complaint was, and how he was while in the fits,and told me she could cure him, and she has, for he has never had but two fits since, and before that he had them every night Abby J.
