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.
' 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
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
The whole affair has wonderfully strength

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.

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

I commenced taking her medicine I was so weak
that I could not bear the least food on my stom

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

grew worse. I took him to Mrs. M. ; she ίΜύ
me what his complaint was, and how he was
