For all the blood which has been shed, For all the patriotic dead, For all the hearts which for us bled, O, save the Union of the States ! SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1865. L. M. HAVERBTICK.) Hi C. LONGNECKEJI. S Editors. J. B. LONGNECKEItJ COL. JOHN V7. WILSON. It is but seldom that wears called upon to re cord the death of one, whose untimely end is so universally regretted as the brave and heroic spirit whose name heads this article; who fell whilst gallantly leading his command in the late move of the army of the Potomac, shot through the head and died instantaneously, falling into the arms of his brother, Lieut. Isaac Wilson of the same regiment. Col. Wilson, at the breaking out of the war, was the Cupt. of a company, only then forming in the neighborhood of Ooekeysville, Warren and Phoenix in this comity, and had met his men for the purpose of drilling, at the former place, on the night of April 20th, 1301, and wan there met by the rebel detail from Baltimore city, who had been ordered by Col. lvane, to proceed to Cock eysville in coaches, and burn the Big Gunpow der bridge, the bridges over Western Run and Beaver Dam, having been burned the previous night, by orders cir.cnating from the same source. Capt. Wilson on this occasion, was ordered by the representatives of the Baltimore rebel mob, 'to lend his aid for the occasion, which he prompt ly’and most positively refused, and gave their chief to understand that “they” wojild not even be permitted to carry out their nefarious, treason able project, and the party returned to Balti more. From that moment, this brave man rose to distinction, until he at the death of the la mented Col. Dushaue, succeeded to the Colonelcy of the regiment, after thousands of brave and meritorious act 3, many of which we cannot re cal to our memory. Suffice it to say, that no one, since the breaking out of the rebellion, has gone down to a soldiers’ grave, more universally lamented than hits Col. Wilson. He leaves a wife and four small children to mourn his un timely end. Ilis remains were interred at Chest nut Grove (Presbyterian) church, near Sweet Air, on Sunday last, attended by a large con course of sympathizing and sorrowing friends and relations. LIEUT. ROBERT A. WILSON. Hardly had we paid the last parting tribute to our dear friend above named, when the sad in telligence of the death of his brother, Lieut. It. A. Wilson, reached us. He died at his residence on Tuesday last, from a wound received in the same battle in which his brother, the Colonel fell. His wound was believed by him to be a. morlal one, and he with the indomitable cour age and energy so often portrayed by the family, determined if possible to reach his home, saying “he would make an effort to reach 1113 family, even if he died on the way.” He reached home on Saturday, and lived but a few days. It is superfluous here, where he was well known to speak of his bravery; his acquaintances know him as one of a family who knew no fear. It may Dot be out of place to give a short his tory of the family of which these two fallen pa triots are a part. They are the son 3of Robert and Eliza Wilson, who removed to the vicinity of Ooekeysville in this county, from Lancaster county, Pa., about twenty-five years ago. They had six sons, Malcom, William, John, James, Robert and Isaac. About the year 1844, Wil liam was killed by lightning, at York", Pa., and at the breaking out of the rebellion and since, the other five entered the service of the United States. Capt. Malcom Wilson, was killed at the battle of Ahteitam ; John W. and Robert A. have just fallen ; James, we are informed, has received a serious wound, and Isaac the young est, is now a Lieutenant in the same regiment from whence his two brothers but recently fell. Tbe Mother, a vefy aged and feeble lady, still lives, having followed her four sons to untimely graves. May God in bis infinite mercy and wis dom, give solace to the aged parent, as well as to the widows and orphans of our lately deceased friends. J... . 1 " L Death of Thomas Holiday Hicks. Scarcely had our friends in this county re covered from the shock produced hy the news of the death of the brave Col. John W. Wilson, when they were again startled by the unwel come announcement of the news of the death of Ex-Governor Thomas 11. Hicks. Ill's death, which was occasioned by paralysis, took place at Washington city on Monday morning last, at 7i o’clock. Immediately after his decease, the sad news was conveyed hy telegraphtodistant partsofthe country; in the Senate and House of Delegates and in the city Couneil of Baltimore, appropri ate ceremonies were observed, and a general feeling of sorrow pervaded the whole loyal community*. His remains were interred at Washington, on Wednesday last, attended by all the officers of the Government, Members of the United States Senate and Congress, as well as by detachments of military, the Governor, Lieut. Governor, Seiiate and House of Delegates of our State, the city Councilof Baltimore, and a vast concourse and friends. Peace to his ashes. We adopt the following lines written by Dr. A. L. Manning, the intimate friend of Govern or Hicks, as expressing our feelings upon the death of this-honest, fearless and patriotic cit izen, changing the word “Dorset” to that of “Maryland,” the loyal men of the State claim . ing him as theirs, also: The great has fallen : once again We record with a hcart-sick pain Another patriot is dead, And with his noble spirit’s fled A friend to freedom, home and State; But though he’s fallen, still he’s great. Traitors assailed his spotless name, And would have damned the patriot’s fame ; But from their poisonous, brutish touch, He let them know that still too much Of honor d well within his frame To drag his country down to shame. Aspersions fierce assailed his track. And treason wished to load his back WRk crimes that would have rais’d the dead From Washington’s immortal bed, To hiss, with an inglorious shame, Such crimes as could not stain his name. Firmly he stood, with giant form, Bresting dark treason’s pelting storm, That thundered like the sea to shore— Unmoved beneath the billow’s roar, A bulwark still to guard the land 'Gainst treasons vile and fiendish band. Hicks sleeps; but, ah, he is not dead 1 His spirit’s but a moment fled; It will not stay; ’twill come again, For freedom lives when forms are slain; And traitors dread such honored dust, As cannot sleep—can never rust. Old Maryland swells with grateful pride • For such a sire adjust has died— For such a son as Rome ne’er knew, Nor Greece nor Carthage eVer grew. Bublimein principle and trust, Jhy sons will weep, and freedom’s must. Publications. Phrenological Journal. —This periodical seems increasing in interest and importance.

Sherman’s army, according to the Rich mond papers of Monday last, has occupied Orangeburg, S. 0., on the railroad between Branchville and Columbia. Ou Friday the Union troops were within two days march of Columbia. The enemy were misled as to the object of Gen. Sherman’s advance by his passing around Branch ville. Wheeler’s cavalry is said to he the only force operating against Gen. Sherman. A Washington paper of Wednesday evening last, professes to have Richmond dates up to Tues day morning, stating that Gen. Sherman, whilst destroying the railroads in South Carolina which lead to Charleston, has sent a separate column to operate against the city direct. A force of Union troops, the Southern papers state, landed at Smitbville, N. C. provided with locomotives and railroad rolling stock, evidently with a design of moving upon Wilmington. Rumors are mentioned as having reached Rich mond from Fredericksburg, Va., to the effect that a Union Cavalry force, accompanied by a large wagon train, were in the upper part of Stafford county, moving in the direction of Fred ericksburg. In Richmond they appear to be ig norant as to tbe object of the raid, if such it is and the report be true, the country, it is stated, being at this time of the year bare of forage and provisions. The reports from Mississippi and Mobile are that large numbers of Union troops (one Southern account says 40,000) are being sent down the Mississippi river towards New- Orleans. The New York Tribune. For twenty years we have taken The Tribune and read it, and we have, in the meantime, read nearly every other daily, which has, from time to time made its appearance in the great metropolis of the Nation. Among all of these journals, The Tribune stands to day, as it has always stood, preeminent for ability, for frankness, for reliabil ity and honesty of statements. Even the readers of other papers often “want to see what The Tribune says about it,” when journals of less character have made some sensation statement wherewith to astonish the public. Above all, The Tribune is, and has been a paper of and for the people. The farmer finds more and better articles for his benefit and information, than in any other newspaper in the world. The mechan ic is posted up in all the latest improvements and bis rights to a fair compensation for his labor, and immunity to excessive demands of employ ers has always been zealously guarded. From the beginning, Tub Tribune has been an advocate for that system of labor which pays the labor er, and it, consequently, has been opposed to un paid labor by slaves. At this time, when the triumph of liberty is about to be realized, the course of The Tribune for a quarter of a century vindicated, and the great contest decided on the side of justice and liberty, this faithful sentinel is, and will be more interesting than ever. We can hardly conceive how a farmer, living within the reach of two mails a week, can afford to be with out The Semi-Weeki# Tribune, or bow any bles sed with less frequent facilities can be a well in formed farmer or mechanic without the visits of The Wekkly. It is tbe best investment for them selves and families, that (outside of their own local papers) they can make in newspapers. Ev ery neighborhood should have its supply of Tri bunes. West-Branch Bulletin. Williamsport , Pa. ...... ■ ■■■<■t desire to call the special attention of our readers to the advertisement in another col umn, of “Baugh’s Raw-Bone I’hohphate,” w hich is sold lf Mr. Dugdale, the agent in Baltimore, anil by his agents throughout the State. Since the high price of .Peruvian Guano has put it out of the reach of the farmers generally, the atten tion of the agricultural community has been turned to some of the Fertilizers most promineut before the public, in order to find a Idas expensive and equally efficient substitute. “Baugh s Raw-Bone Phosphate,” the article alluded to, can be safely recommended toull who desire a Fertilizer sufficiently active to forward the growth of the crop, and.' permanent enough to insure a heavy yield of Grain, as well as to leave in the soil a sufficient quantity of fertilizing material for the actiou of future crops. We therefore recommend those of the community who have not used this popular Fertilizer, to give it a trial, as to those who have used it, this hint will be unnecessary. Farmers Take Notice. We would call the special attention of farm egardners and others, to the advertisement orLester & Co., No. 40 Howard St., corner of Franklin, Baltimore Md., which appears in this week’s issue. The Maryland Companies Pouderette is highly recommended by all who have used it. We can recommend it to our friends and are confident that, after a fair trial, the result will be satisfactory.

Editors of the Union : Gentlemen —Having recently taken a trip to the great metropolis of the nation (the Capitol) and also the Capitol of “My Maryland.” 1 thought perhaps a synopsis of the trip Ac,, might not prove uninteresting to a part, at least of the numerous, readers of the “Union.” Istarted from Govanstown on Wednesday, February Ist, about 7$ o’clock via Baltimore A Towsoutown R. 11. iu a car in charge of Mr. Porter, one of the oblig ing conductors of said road, and after reaching the Monumental city, proceeded at once to Wash ington via Balto. A Ohio It. R. having* been kindly provided with a free ticket by the efficient master of Transportation of said road W. Pres cott Smith, Esq. After riding for an hour and a half iu a car under the care of one of the polite conductors of said road, I arrived at my destina tion. 1 f® tnd that in Washington eveything was life and confusion. While iu lh.it city, I paid a visit to the various places of interest, such as the Capitol building, Ac. I noticed at the White House, crowds were generally iu waiting to see the occupant. Members of Congress from almost every State, waiting to pay their respects and to ask some favor for themselves or friends. 1 also visited Congress, and while listening to the various debules, the natural impression of the heart was, oh ! for the days of Webster, Clay and others, with such statemanship and love of country as characterized their deliberations.— Both houses of Congress present quite a grand appearance. The excitement occasioned by the “Trensury building murder” having partly subsided, the whole attention of the public mind seemed direct ed to the “Peace Commissioners,” and many were the cries of the news boys, “Arrival of the Peace Commissioners.” , Fiona the eagerness with which 'the papers were bought, they no doubt were well paid for their labor. From tbe number of officer* in Washington belonging to the army, one would suppose it was tho llend Quarters of General Grant. After having satisfied myself in Washington, I embarked lor Annapolis, the Capitol of my na live State, where I visited the Senate and House of Delegates, which bodies presented a very re- . speciublc appearance, though I noticed several of the members of the House were very juvenile , in their appearance. The “bounty bill” which ! occasioned so much debate, has at last passed.— j j It should have passed at the beginning of the ‘ * session in order to have given the several eoun , ties time to fill their quotas before the draft.— : . However, it is better at the lllh hour than not j ! at nil. Quite a number of officers and soldiers are ; j sojourning in and around the “ancient city,” j | the parole camp being but a short distance from town. I noticed from conversation iu the cars, that farms in Maryland were getting to he much in demand, by persons residing in the Northern and other States. After looking around to iny satisfaction in the State Capitol, 1 started for Baltimore in a train conducted hy James 11. Brown, Esq., one of the gentlemanly officers of the Annapolis Rail Road, and arrived in the “Monumental city,” on the evening of Thurs day the 2d instant, where I remained for the night,land reached the pleasant village of Go vanstown ou Friday. Fearing that lam intru ding too much upon your columns, as well as the patience of the readers of your welcome week ly visitor, 1 will close, remaining very truly yours.; W. B. K. Correspondence of the Union. Prosimcct Hills, Balto. Co., Feb. 15th, ’Go. Messrs ., Editors of the Union : Gentlemen —l see by a notice in your paper, that you desire some of your readers to furnish you with information of any little matters, that should transpire in the various neighborhoods into which .vour valuable paper finds ils way.— I thought perhaps, a little affair that took place here a few weeks ago might be interesting.— Therefore I will endeavor to give you the facts in as brief a manner as possible. A bachelor of doubttul age, and one who has figuied pretty extensively in the walks of life, has at last been caught by the sireu voice of the Charmer, and li:i£ submitted tamely, to have the yoke of mat rimony placed upon his neck. Nothing strange in this you will say or very uncommon. But stop, hear a little more and then judge. No one Started out in life, with brighter prospects of be coming a married man at an early age, than he and none more deserving. He commenced court ing at an early age, ami sipped honey from ma ny an opening flower. Wherever lie vent he was welcomed by scheming mammas, who bad daughters to give away in marriage, for lie was a pattern of' moral excellence, besides having well filled coffers. “ A snug brink house, for a little wife to fill, A bam well stored, for his cattle ou the hill ” He was also very circumspect iu his demeanor, for no body however charming she might be could detain him beyond the hour of ten. But this young man was some what fastidious in hi 3 tastes, lie was rather hard to please, some of the flowers were too tall, some too fleshy, some toojdi miuutive, some were poor, and others who had rich dads the progeny was too large, and there fore the share too inconsiderable to strike home. His peregrinations were considerably extended in his search for a wife. On Rail Roads, Steam boats, Buggy-wagons, ou horse-back and shanks niare, each was used in turn. Neighboring counties and states were ransacked. But alas! no wife could be found suited to his mind. This fastidiousness of his, seemed to he somewhat of a mania with him. ltextended notonlytohis own sisters, but to his cousins of an adjoining farm, who by the by, were amongst the fairest flowers ol'EdCn’s bowers, neither did they bloom unno ticed. But no flowers were watched more closely than were these, hy their most scrupulous cousin, and the bee that would dare suck honey from these fair flowers, must be king among Lees, or else be certain to meet his dire displeasure. And there was not one flower plucked from this fair Eden, hy masculine hand who did not have to suffer more or less, from his biting sarcasm. And the flowers of his own household were not watch ed with less scrutiny I assure you. And the reason I presume, why they have bloomed unno ticed, has been more owing to the over fastidi ousness of the king bee than anything else. — Now the consequence of so much singularity, proved utterly ruinous to his matrimonial pros pects. And consequently the dark and murky notes of bachelorism opened up 4fefore him, in all their terrible gloom. But be was obliged to set sail without a star to shine upon his dark and dreary pathway. Away he sails in all his ignoble glory, and is almost if not entirely for gotten. He now becomes wedded to his church, his farm and his pipe, aud a singular propensity for rambling on Rail Roads of a Sabbath after noon. lam informed that on one occasion at least, his walk was so extended that quite an alarm was created in the family, because of his absence being prolonged, so much beyond the usual time of his return. But this alarm was of short duration, for shortly after ten his footsteps were heard upon the porch. But this propensity for rambling continued without diminution, un til gossip’s glib longue began to run, and whis pers were going the rounds, that in a certain brick house near the village of R. lived a fine la dy, and it was said that lure the rambler sought shelter and repose, to recruit his wearied limbs, and recuperate his vital energies. And l>y the strenuous.efforts of the fair one, in ministering to the wants of the weary traveller, by 10 o’clock (liis hour for retiring) he was sufficiently refresh ed to resume his nightly ramble. And thus he kept sailing on over the murkey waters of bach elorism, until a furious storm arose, which last ed from early dawn until I believe about 4 o’clock P. M., when the frail bark sank, to rise no more. All on board perished but one, who was quickly carried to a large brick house near the village or R. A priest was sent for w ith all haste, who administered the necessary consola tion and about 5 o’clock he died from mere ex haustion. Thus died the bachelor. And now a new era commences. Although, I ani informed it com menced very inauspicionsly, for some rascally, thieving villians, disturbed very much the tran quility of the scene by stealing sleigh-bells, ftn liooking.liorses, and dragging sleighs quite out of sight, and various other pranks that very much annoyed the happy company. But nothing com pared to the confusion that was occasioned to the bridegroom, because of a little absent blind ness. Every thing passed off very well, until the old clock in the great hall, chimed the hour of ten, when the bridegroom arose, picked up his hat and said, “As it is growing late I must be going, so 1 bid you all good night.” The bride was thunderstruck, there was a rustling of*silks,' and satins, a titter amongst the ladies, suppress ed ha',‘ha, among the gentlemen. Excitement ran wild. But the kind Pa had soon all matters righted. He quickly followed the retrentiug fig ure, and when he had overtaken him, he affec tionately laid bis hand on his shoulder and said ‘do not go home to night my son, we have ample ac commodations ;’ ‘all things shall be as you desire.’ By the kind persuasions of the old gentlemen, the groom was prevailed on to return to his new ly' made bride; and to the realities that he was not now his own, but belonged to another. That he was now under the yoke, aud iu order to suc ceed well, he must pull with his bride at the same end of the string. After the return of the groom tranquility was soon restored, after which my informant left. Tit for Tat. Ftir the Baltimore County Union. Henry Clay. In this tbe time of our country’s trouble and danger how frequently do the thoughts of the truly loyal revert to other days, when peace, uni ty and prosperity prevailed throughout the land —and when, if any serious diffi ulty cither at home or abroad, threatened our peace, the na tional mind seemed instinctively to turn for gui dance and direction to such distinguished patri ots as Webster, Clay, Cass and others, whose wise counsels under a gracious Providence, pre pared the way for our escape. Amongst these “bright particular stars,” none shone more brilliantly than he whose name stands as a caption to this article. No one had warmer friends, or more enthusiastic admirers.— The sincerity of the admiration was illustrated in a great many instances, but in none more strikingly than in the ease mentioned in the fol lowing extract from a work some years since published, called “The Foot-Prints of an Itiner ant.” “I recollect,” says the author, “an amusing incident which transpired at the inauguration of Gov. Morton of Louisiana. It was nunounced more than a week previous, through the journals of the city of New Orleans, that Mr. Clay would be present upon that interesting occasion. Ear ly in the morning the streets were thronged, not to see the recently elected Governor, but to gel a sight of the great statesmen, Henry Clay, who was then the guest of Ihe city. The doors were guarded by a strong military force, to prevent the crowd from entering before the arrival of the Governor and his suite, the ladies and invited guests from abroad. Through the kindness of a friend I was early admitted to a comfortable seat. A number procured boards and ladders, and “climbed up some olhtr w..y,” and made their ingress through the windows in the rear of the l u lding. It was not long before the entrance of Mr. Clay, that I discovered at my side, standing on a chair, a fine, noble looking, native Louisianian He seemed much agitated, and his fine forehead bathed in most profuse perspiration. Ilis whole manner attracted my attention, when on a sud den, his flashing eye met ray steady gaze. He then stooped down and very politely asked me if I thought Mr. Clay would soon make his ap pearance. I replied “it is not quite time yet.’* “Sir,” said he, “are you a citizen of this place?” I replied, “No, I reside in Ohio,” “Were yyu ever in the State of Kentucky?” quickly inquir* | eiimy excited strange friend, f replied, ‘JO, yes, J often ; I am at present residing in Cincinnati.” “Did yon ever see Mr. Clay ?” “() yes, frequent ly.” “0, sir,” lie replied, “you arc a highly , favored man ; I would rather look upon his face than any man in the universe.
