Ueucral Fremont** Situation.
One of our editorial corps returned last
evening from Franklin, Pendleton county,
eigbtv miles south of New Creek, which
was, up to Sunday last, the headquarters
of Gen. Fremont. It 13 dis*ant twenty-four
miles from Monterey, and sixty-five from
Staunton, and is ou the same line of lati
tude with New Market, Gen. B inks' former
headquarters in the adjoining valley. It
is a place hard of access from New Creek,
by reason of two rivers intervening, and
also on account of toe miserable condition
of the last twenty miles of the road along
the mountains that skirt the South Branch.
It was to thi3 place that Generals Milroy
and Schenck fell back after the battle of
McDowell, and to which Geu. Fremont
enrne on a forced march from Petersburg,
thirty miles this side. The place itself is
a miserable, squalid village of old huts in
the midst of a cordon of hill?, and is ca
pable of being strongly defended with a
comparatively small force. Jackson, pur
sued Milroy nnd Scheucl; to Franklin, aud
would have brought on a battle possibly,
bad not Fremont come up with his rein
On Saturday last, late in the day. Gen.
Fremont received a dispatch from the Sec
retary of War to tail back with bis entire
command to the support of Gen. Banks,
aud at daylight on Sunday the troops com
menced breaking camps, by regiments, and
by twelve o'clock in the day that whole
army of over twenty thousand men were
on the move. It was a grand sdght to see
them breaking camp. They took up their
line of march with colors flying and bands
playing. The day was a most beautiful
onp, nnd the mouutaiu air was just bracing
enough to be inspiriting. The troops
were in excellent mood. Within the last
? twenty-four hours they had succeeded in
gettiug full rations, something which tliey
had not had for several days previous.?
They were eager for a fight, and the whole
line sang exultant song3 a? they ^filed out
into the main road.
No one outside of the General's confiden
tial advisers of course knew the object of
the move, but the guessing was remarka
bly accurate. Some said the iJea was to
get nearer our supplies; others to get iu
the reur of the rebels, aud in conjunction
with McDowell, "bag" theui after they had
chased Banks far enough. Others supposed
it was to protect our communication with
New Creek and Cumberland by meau3 of n
line throwu out from Mooreficld to Green
Spring Run, which will probably turn oul
to be the correct supposition.
The march for the first twenty miles was
alow and bard. The roads were rutted aa
deep as they could be, and the heavy artil
lery was draggeJ along with great difficul
ty?many of the pieces requiring six, eight
and even ten horses. The first day's jour
ney was to the upper crossing of the South
Branch of the Potomac?the place where
the rebels had burnt the bridge, aud which
we were obliged to span with u pontoon.
The next nay's march was intended to be a
distauce of some twenty-five miles, to a
point between Petersburg and Moorefield.
We presume it was made, as the General
was hurrying forward with all speed. What
the finale of the march will be of course ii
a matter only of speculation. We will all
know in a day or two.
The country from New Creek to Peters
burg?forty-two miles?is beautiful be
yond description. No lovelier valley was
ever formed than that which lays between
the Alleghanes on the West side aud the
Shenandoah on the Hast side. It is rich
too, and in times of peace yeilded the most
abundent harvests of grain. This year
their will be cut a slim crop becuuse so lit
tle land is sown. The yield of frnit, how
ever, promises to be greater that was ever
The people in Hardy county along iu
this valley inclinc to be loyal. In Pen
& dleton county farther on, they incline the
other way. There is a vast amount of ig
norance to bo met with in a day's journey.
Indeed the,backwardness of the peeple in
all that makes up advancement and pro
gress is In striking contrast with the beau
ties and capacities of ;lhe countiy. Very
few school houses arirto be seen. The
people nearly all wear homespun?talk a
whining vernacular?and are anything and
everything in their politics, according as
they find you are. There are many excep
tions of course, for there are the very
strongest exceptions to be met with, both
on the side of the Union and secession?es
pecially among the female persuasion, who
as elsewhere are quite rioleat in their feel
ings and expressions about the war.
Bushwhacking seems to be just cleverly
commencing, and Gen. Fremont is nipping
it in the bud as promptly as possible, ilis
aconts have made short work of some of
tbe whackers and will make even shorter
work of all who are caught. We may ex
pect to hear of exciting incidents along
the line of his command both in the guer
illa line and in other respects in a few
However disastrous the bare fact of an j
enforce*! retreat into Maryland oo the part
of Bank's column may be considered, it
must be confessed that the manner of con
ducting it ba9 been higbljr creditable as a
military achievement. In the first place i
there was a wonderful disparity of forces.
Banks had bat 4,000 infantry and 1300 cav
alry and 16 guns. The rebels had some
20,000 men, with strong artillery supports, i
and probably 2,000 or 3,000 cavalry. Ba- j
sides Banks bad an immense train to pro- j
tect. In spite of all this he withdrew his ;
army in the face of the enemy from Stras
burg to the Potomac, and crossed safely
with nine tenths of his trains. No doubt
he suffered severe loss, but it is almost a
miracle that the entire command was not
It is an axiom among military men that ;
there is nothing so diflicult as a successful i
retreat. The remarkable retreat of Sigel =
has been a thetne for admiration ever since '
the battle of Pea Ridge. This retreat of
Banks was accomplished under oven more
j trying circumstances and will doubtless
I when the details come to light be found as \
brilliant ati achievement us that of the ?
i ? gtllant Dutchman.'*
A little paragraph which appears else- j
where shows that the attack on Banks wa3 j
planned a month ago. Jackson having J
united with Johnson in Augusta county,
was expected to attack Milroyou the 7th. '
The attack was made a day later for some
reason. Mi troy was not annihilated as thev
expected, for the reason that he received
timely assistance. But they did march on
dowu the Valley, united with Kwell, fell
upon Banks and drove him iuto Maryland
according to programme. His official re
port published this rnoruing however, de
nies that he was "utterly cut to pieces''
though he admits a heavy loss. "Mary
land?my Marylttud" is uot theirs yet by
considerable. The news from Banks is
that the rebels are retreating again up the
Valley, why we caunot tell, unless some
movement i3 goiug on in their rear, of
which we are not apprised.
Tl?e Detent at Untile* Predicted *iO
Day* ago In Richmond.
In the Cincinnati Commercial we find a
letter written from Uichmoud to the Mem
phis Appeal on the 7th inst., from which
we clip this paragraph:
We have beeu expecting all day tidings
of a battle from Gen. T. J icksou. Having
effected a junction with Gen. Edward John
ston, (of Alleghany Mount&in) he was this
morning to have attacked the Vankees un
der Milroy, at a point six miles beyond
Staunton, while Banks was held in check
by Kwell, who is stationed at Swift llun
(lap. Jackson's programme was to march,
immediately after having dispatched Mil -
r?y, (which seemed an assured success,) up
the valley, and uniting with Kwell, to fall
upon Banks. Let us hope that it will be
carried out fully, and that Bauks may be
utterly cut to pieces. After that, what re
"Marylauil?my Maryland ?
The programme has been followed up
Willi remarkable fidelity, all but "Mary
land my Maryland." That portion of the
programme will probably be omitted.
Tin: excitement at Baltimore has sub
Hided. The rebels found the situation
there this time very different from what it
was more than n year ago, when they tried
to revolutionize that city, and murdered
Union soldiers on their way to defend the
capital. We take this change as a healthy
sign?an indication of a greatly improved
public sentiment throughout .Maryland.?

We find the following in the corres
pondence of the Ohio Slate Journal, dated
Washington, 2:!d :
it is very likely that Fredericksburg will
become an important point and a base of
operations for our army. Gen. Shields
with liis corps joined McDowell there one
day this week, with reinforcements (among
whom are the Fifth, Seventh and Sixty
sixth Ohio regiments) amounting to twen
ty-five thousand men, it is said. The
movement from this direction will be one
of great importance, and if carried for
ward with vigor, will prove entirely suc
cessful. McDowell now has some of the
best fighting material in the whole army ;
men who have gone through the cimpaign
of Western Virginia, and theheroe3 of the
Winchester tight, utid when they move,
somebody will be hurt. The telegraph mat/

?excitement In Cumberland.
There was a great excitement at Cum
berland, Maryland, night betore last in
fact, for the day previous?oo account of
the supposed proximity of Jackson's rebel
army. Some of the secesh were disposed
to be jbuilant, especially one McCaig, a
prominent and wealthy citizen; and this
symptom so enraged the loyal people that n
riot was imminent for several hours duriog
thenight. McCaig's brick stabling was burn
ed and his house assaulted, and but for the
miliArv, his life would possibly have paid
the forfeit of bis disloyal rejoicing. It was
the fact that a regiment or Marylanders
were repulsed and cut to pieees at Front
Royal, that especially enraged the Cuiuber
lunders at McCaig's unnatural delight.
Whkx Lord Cornwallia surrendered to
the American Anny at Yorktown, a young
ensign was appointed to receive the colore
of the British Regiments The ensign on
whom this honor was conferred was Rob
ert ;Wilson, 18 years of age, and the
youngest commissioned officer in the army.
His grandson is now Adjutant of the lGth

a little remarkahle that the grandson

Mowers and Reapers!
BUCKKYK, FOR 18GJi.
Minis justly celebrated Machine is now generally
L known and recognized as tlio b.*t and most per
fect Mower in use. Koch year's experience adds to
Us high reputation aud proves Its superiority over
alt others. It combines many advantages not found
iu other machines. It has two driving wheels,
which act together or independently; it al*o Im.i a
double hinged folding cutter bar which makes it es
pecially adapted to cutting on hilly and uneven sur
faces, allowing It to pass freely over stones or other
obstructions, al*o allowing the bar to fold across the
frame without removing a singlo bolt or nut. The
machine can thus be transported ready for in-tant
use frout Held to field or tarm t?? farm :is readily an a
common cart. The finger bar ii made of sidel, the
guard lingers are peculiar to this mower and are he
cured by patent. They are made of wrought iron
and laid wlth'steel; the im'|K?rWice of this feature
will be readily recognized by those who liuve been
annoyed by the cost aud trouble of the cast fingers
used on other machines. Agaiu, while presenting a
perfect mower we al-o furuUli when desired an in
dependent reap ng attachment, thus giving the pur
chaser the advantaee of a single or combined ma
chiue. "We warrant; every machine, and dur.ng the
experience of six years have never hud a single ma
chine returned. Wo therefore feel justified in re
commending the BUCKKYK as superior to ail others.
We now furnish two sixes suitable to the wauts of
all classes of farmers.
THE BUCKEYE, Jr.,
will be sold at the very low price of eighty-five dol
lars, ami for lightness of draft, convenience, simpli
city and durability is unequalled by anything yet in
the field. Farmers wanting a machine must send in
their orders early as there will be but a limited
number built this season. Sample machines can be
seen at Mr, Joliu Thobnru's, corner of Market and
Quincy streets, Wheeling.
