It is now no longer a c ret that our army his
ehanged its po-itain, and is intrenched on the
Montgomery and West Point road. Tucrc Is no
ntisou why this 1111vc.1u.it should exci'o tno
b ars and doubts ol tho Kmplo of this section of
ouniry, or causo the weak-kneed to becotn-j
II ore tremulous than usual.
Before the evacuation of Atl mm. Macon and
ti e surrounding couirrv wre more or less ex
posed, as was proven hy the Stoniuaa cxp jditiotl,
to raids from tbo enemy. Con viitra'aog thtir
cavalry at night a-,:. I moving noiselessly abound
cither Hank of onr armv, tho enemy c m.d gee
many hours' sar' of our cavalry and commit 1111. u-bt-iless
depredations before tuoy could be over
taken. As we wero constantly llahle to thu-ie
marandingcxpcdilionsjt became Imperatively ne
cessary that local orgaoi. itions should bo for ivd
to resist and ho! J in check tho I" e.'-'s of the enemy
until our cavalry could hasten lo the stone of
hostilities. Tho necessity of these local orgiui
rations, and their ctl'ect, were well illustrated in
the Sioneinaii raid. Tbo determined resistance,
offered by them to tho udvanco of tho enrsmy
enabled our cavalry to catch up with tho raider,
ai d rnpturo or put to Might their wiiol) force.
Dy the removal of our anny 10 tho West Point
road Macon Is no morn exposed to raids tuaa
before. It will still be lia'ilc to su -n incursions
as th! enemy have tho enterprise and bdd iess ti
ucderiuke, and will stili bo enabled to protect
herself as she has hitherto done.
The prisent position of our army preclu des, wo
think, the probability of Sherman's for es at
ti nipting a move in ibis direction. KhJiild they
eshay so hazardous an undertaking their f! ink
and rear would be exposed to Immediate attack
1 y our army, and the result, witu such an advan

that iheinemy a taeked General Eirlv late yes

forcing back tbe left of bis line, and, throwing a
ton e in Ids rear, compelled him to a lan loii tan
Ci sition, leaving twelve pieces of cannon in their
ii lids, though losing but few men.
The olllcial news, puolishcd above, was smli
eh ntly astounding for one day, after ihe public
bad become pretty well assured that no furfur
retrograde would bo made, tho assurance arising
from the known strength of the position aoioctcd
by (iencral Karly. It seems, however, that the
enemy so largely outnumbered our forces, espe
cially in cavalry, the favorite arm of Sheridan,
that the strength of the position availed nothing
Bcninst an overwhelming ll.nk movement.
Our cavalry, weakened by their losses ou Mon
day, were in no condition on Thursday to resist
treble their number moved against them, and
gave way, thus exposing the rear of the p .sitioti
ut Fisher's Hill. This compelled a hasty aban
donment of tho place, and a rapid retreat ttpan

public, and stopped ut a post station known us
Kei zlctown, about thirteen miles from Staunton,
andsixfiom thef.utli river road. The entire
movement wus made without what may be termed
a fight, (ieiieial Karly deeming it bettor strategy
to avoid ono than to risk one under the ch'cum
stmiccs. On Friday, however, a flauking party from
Sheridan's forces having penetrated the Pago
valley, with a view to retard any reinforcements
that might have been on tho route to Karly from
that direction., w as encountered by a forco of our
cavalry and whipped. At last accounts, on yes.
tuday, Karly lias still at Keezlulowu, where it
was believed ho would make a stand, ulthough
muny lean wero nalurully expressed that he
would continue his retreat.
Many i umors were atloat, growing out of a con
fusion of .the battle on Monday and the retreat
since Thursday, and representing turrilic battles
und appalling losses. It is hardly necessary to do
more than lueuUou the fact to clear np the cvu-fusion..

I.origstiert .'i.tnos back most opportunely to

valley. T!,e presence of two lieutenant-generals

to eo 0h late, has prevented, when there should

Notwithstanding the los es sustained in the la'e

Sheridan has now begun the same perilous ruk,
and the same fate will befall bim.
Neither party cun permanently hold tho valley,

that reinforcements can more readily re a -h their
army than c m be sent to onrs, while i's upper end
enables us to concentrate more rapidly upon

The infantry of the enemy fa worth verv little;
but when permitted to bo thrown in overwhelm

upon a second, and then upon a third; when the
cavalry of the enemy, picked and aeloeted, aro

should result. A thorough, radi al change of

A complete rufnrm of tnc army is being demon

This morning ut half-past 3 o'clock another de
structive contligriitlon occurred in tho uppji- part
of Mannyunk, at tho woollen mills of Sidnoy
Solnis. The mills consisted of a group of struo
lur. s, and wero at the present tioie euipl.iyod in
the manufacture of kerseys. One of tho struc
tures was a new one, fire stories in height, a 1 1
built of stone. About thirty yards from this was
another live-story structure, and adjoining that
was a building 70 by 40 feet, four h oriei in
height. This was also tmiltof stone, au 1 wis
used for the Btoragc of stock, aud at the tim . ot'
the the contained some valuable machinery. Trie
lower story was used f..r coloring purposes; on
room for warping and another for spinning I' i i o
upper floors luo used for drying.
itio tl lines originated iu this structure, in tho
drying ilepartmi a', and tho whole building was
totally destroyed. About two necks ago the
structure had beou improved by numerous repairs,
in .1 Ik. .l'l'ln.o'i 1. 1 a new r,.of.
Adjoining ibis was a two-story build;ng about
toit let long, containing dyo vats aud apparatus
for eye rg. The strueiiiro wus built ol stone and
brick , and was totally destroyed.
Adjoining on tho west was a tbrce-stono dry
house, containing boilers for generating steam
for drying and (oloriDg purpos s. This budding
was also rendered a complete wreck.
Adjoining this sou. lure again was a two-story
stone building, nscd as tbo plckcr-houso. Tne
second siory wus used as the picker-room, and
the loner floor as a tinishing rooin, where was
stored a large nmount of m icuincry.
Tl.o main building made a narrow escape from
tbe destroying !l. lines. A heavy shower of rain
previous to tlio lire, together with the assistance
i. f wat.-r thrown from buckets, saved tho p! I 'o.
It escaped with scorched windows, and tho
damage to this building is trifling.
Adjoining the trout buildings on tbo west, at a
disunite of utiout ten feet, is a I ,rge mill, occu
pied by I. aco'k A Holt, and William Pros , and
others, ml employed in the manufacturing busi
ness. This building, ulso, made a very narrow
Considerable damage was sustained by water,
ns it was found ne.ce-s iry to drag tho hose through
some of the buildings in order to prevent tlio
flames from' spreading. The lire burned stu

citizens worked fjnb 'ullv; and by their energy
prevented thu conflagration from being mora

A Oano of I Mi'osToiis.Fiir . several years past
there has been a regularly organized giug of ioi
posters In this city, who have been swindling (ho
people out of money by representing that they
were authorized to collect lor various purposes.
Some would have books, and solicit subscriptions
for the purchase of steam tiro euglncs, am'm
lances, the Young Men's Christian Assoeiati n,
and other purposes. At one lima they got up
what was known as a bogus bill. Thoy had
several thousand tickets printed, representing
that a bull was to take place ut Sansoin Street
Hell, the proceeds to be devoted to a beiiovolont
purpose. Hundreds of tickets, at .'! eseli, wore
sold, but on tbe night named no ball totik place,
the Hull not even having been secured for that
mrpo'C. Yesterday, two of theso men wero
jound over by Alderman li, filer for collecting
tnonev to fiee a ccrlaiu ward from the draft.
These nu n were the most barefaced stamp? at
large. A few months since ono of them wait. il
on Governor Pollock and nsked hliu to subscribe
towards the purchase of a steam lire engine. The
Oimernor, not being p irtial to stoatn lire engines,
refused to subscribe, when the rogue puKcd from
bis pocket another book setting forth'that tho
bearer was empowered to collect funds for the
Young Men's Christum Association. Tho con
trast Lctwctii the two objects was sogrjit that
the tioveruor immediately ordered tho mil out
ot bisotlice, knowing him to bo uti impoitor.
Tho operutiousol these men have not been con
fined to Philadelphia alone. They hart visitod

since that two of iheui were at Kaston, Pa. De

THE WORKING WOMEN AGAIN
Where Employment is to be Had
THE KITCHEN VERSUS THE
The third and bi't public meeting of the Work
Ingnomen's Protective Association was held
Inst evening, at the Snnsom Street Hall. In the
future all meetings incidental to a proper organi
zation of the different ward and other committees
will be held at tbe it. Kim of tbe Association, lu
Arch street, below Eighth.
Notwithstanding the Inclemency of the neither,
tliete was a large atiendanco last evening, and a
greatly increased Interest iu tho objects of tun
association was manifested throughout Speeches
were made by several prominent gent emeu of
this city, in which the workingwomea of I'lola
dilpbia were urged to act with eucrgy in tho
matter now devolved upon tlie.u, as m ist suc
cessful and happy results were sure to folliw
their lutK)r..Ttio remarks of Mr. II. II. Wa rmer
sncgetti d ! tbo Association many plans by
which the wants of the wotkingwomeii of Pull i
b Iphia can be relieved, and as tney are of a
nature which raiinot help bin forcibly impress
themselves upon the mind of every worn m. wo
make serial r, ference to Cicin.
Alter alluding to the rail of the meeting, and
uigiug the workingwomen todovoto all tlic ener
gies ol their minds and bodies to make this great
object a successful one, Mr. Warrincr said that
Ihe working women of Pdiladeiphia should look
for other kinds ot employ pent than th it which
cot. line them to tho use of the needle. It wis
In- simple opinion that other fields of employ
inert must bo sought out for these women, l'ne
world is lull of work, aud is to be found also if
those in need of it but apply themselves to ob
tain tig it.
Hie there was one avenue of employment to
which lie wished specially to direct the attention
not alone ot the sewing women, but of the work
Ingnouicn of this city, and it was this: Ihe
women of America are very greatly afraid ot
housework. They arc afr d,l of toibng in their
own kitchens, or In the ki ehens of their frijnds
in Ibe position of domestics.
There is a cause for this feeling, ho admit'ed.
It is a .'act, a lamentable fact, that the maid or
woman who labors In tho kitchen as a domestic
is too often looked upon as a menial, if not a very
slave; and every American woman, no ma ter
what may bo her position, has a pride pride of
heart, piide of feeling that forbids her for a
single moment to occupy such a post as that
which demeans i r enslaves her. Tnis is why the
kitchens aro neglected. Your American wo.neii
atmot help reiiicmiicrnig the words of that old
long hi li speaks ubotu liberty and a crust of
blend. And ii is no wonder tint thev prcfor
freedom toad the luxuries that weigh dowa tho
ti.bes of thoso who would assume the master
ship ovi r them.
Yet while all this is true, the spetikor thought
there might he a way of opening up tne channels
ot employment to the workiugwi men witUout
nccessitaiiug that degradation which seems to be
so inseparably connected with it. He beli. ve l
that women might toll in the kitchen and bcjo.t
as b ole t. us viituous, and us worthy of ro-peet
us tho-e with whom they associated in the dis
charge ot their (lil ies.
There was no re ison why this shon'd n it hi
tbo case, and the workingwomea owed it to
themselves and to the success of their organiza
tion to take the initiatory step in this matter, and
by leaving tne sewing garret and stepping Into
the kiichcn, to render the p. ait au honoiable ono,
and thus make un outlet for the pressicg demands
ol the sewing woir.cn.
It Is ci rtuiii that the market Is overstocked
with sewing women. The ravages of war have
thrown thousands of women into thu gaunt arms
of poveny, aurt their very lives aro buing crushed
oui ol lliein. These, as a bust resource, bad ro
course to the necdlo to support themselves.
Outside of tho performance of domo-tic duties
tin y knew of no other employment that would
ellord ibeni bread scarcely cuough at tliat for
tin iiibcIvcb and their dependants. Tims it was
that tho supply has exceeded the demand ; aud
lids tact rrgulaicd prices paid for their la'.'jr.
There are otin r avenues of employment opened
fcr woman, remarked the speakir. Wny should
not women atlas amanuenses, us book keepers,
as cupyists, and even why not as telegraph op. r
tors, ai.d printers. Ho knew lint th.ro wis
great opposition m ido 0 some men to these i.i
liovaii. us, and In a number of cases where su m
movements had been org.tn7.od, combinations of
men hud operated unjustly agsinst mo women,
and bad sueceided in doiea ing their plans, l li.s
action of the men ihatwomeu are i. n ap i , la of
occupying such po-itious should bo resisted.
He believed that women had a right Ml do
whatever they could do well, and they should
receive lor this work as high a compensation as
that paid men. Ho believed that uica wore bettor
qualilii d for ceituin kind of businesses than wo
men. Women were the best nurses at tho bedside
of the sick men tho best phvileiaus und Bur
geons on the bsttte-tleld. 11 it when women pos
sess i mil iticati, .ns for positions occupied by
nun, and can discharge the duties just as
faithlully and well, public opinion should not
exclude them fioiu tin so avenues ol employment,
and con lii o them to thoso lor which tuuy have au
Woik for the woikingwomen of Philadelphia,
woik that wou d nil ir I them means to firs, was
theoljcclof Ibis organisation. H made no dif
ferent o whut tbe position occupied by these
women, so tl at it was honorable work worit
thut would preserve their virtue and exalt their
n, oral nature. Cheeks that wore blanched, and
eyes that had grown lustrele-s in leaky garrets
si d dump rooms, might he made to bloom agaiu
amid Ibe savory odors of meats in tho kitehea.
In Ihe counting-bouse, behind Ihe counter of tbo
store, amid the click of typo in the composing
room, or of the arm of the magnet in the telo
gtiipli oiliec new life would bo Instillud into
those whom pinching poverty has well High
driven to the verge of destruction.
In conclusion, tho speaker urged tho necessity
of a prompt and vigorous action by tho associa
tion, mid ward and precinct meetings should, If
niccs.-nry ; Immediately be held, and the work
ingwomin should use their utmost endeavors to
per net such an otguuiation as would be penna
nt nt iu its character. Now wus the dine to strike
Ihe blow. The public ear hud caught tho cry of.
these nitleiing women, and the humanity of our
citizens had been appealed to. Justi c demanded
iissistai.ee, and justice iu the end would bo sure
to no te it to them.
