loudly protest to the Govern- j
ment against'the' pernicious act by which j
he was let loose without compliance with '
Che most>triogent letter of the law. Of all ]
men Judge Thompson ought to have re
ceived the least mitigation at the hands of j
ie government. lie played the part of an ]
triguerin the Union cause here when <evr
ery thing was in jeopardy; He did not hes
itate, after loud professions of loyalty and
al ter he had won tnaoy to his side by those
professions, to throw him?elf as a firebrand
into our divided public sentiment, and for
4 moment put the highest interests of this ,
community in the extremest peril.
Weak as Judge Thompson is in mental
and moral intellect, he has a hold npon
Very many, by virtue of his long official
prestige. There are many who do not
realize that be is as bad a man as he is.
They cannot some how believe it, becausc
they do not know bim. Such people Judge
Thompson can still farther impress. The
capacity to intrigue is just the capacity that
the Judge possess.-s. And he will quietly
use it, if he. finds be can do ao with impu
nity.
We write these words with reluctance.?
With all our realization of Judge Thomp
son's bad faith at th^ critical moment, we
Would much rather see bim in the enjoy
ment of all bis liberties than deprived of any
of them, providedjhe wonld enjoy them as a
good citizen. But that be will never do.?
He has openly declared that he will never
support or respect the Governments which
this community recognize.
! On the 31st of May last, previous to his
depertare for Camp Chase, he wrote the
following card to the Wheeliug Prett.
To the Editor of the Wheeling l'ret$ :
i Sir?With your usuwl regard for the ac
curacy of your facts, and your "love for
the Union, the Constitution and the en
forcement of the laws," yon have said that
I was arrested and took the oath. I was
arrested 1 I have not taken the oath, and
never will submit my conscience to snch
unhallowed impnrity as to take an oath to
a power, and from men wh?, in endeavor
ing to coerce me, violate the very oatli they
wish to compel me to take. I have uo
sympathy with Despotism and Abolition
ism.
Do at least the justice to pablisb this.
Gxo. W. Thoxpsox.
May 31st, 1862.
This was the public declaration of the
Jndge previous to his departure for Camp
Chase. He has not retracted It. He comes
home under an exchange as be claims. In
no sense.is Judge Thompson a prisoner of
war. Neither was he taken as a hostage.
Neither as an exchanged man does he pro
pose to go South, as exchanged people do.
To exchangeghim, required,we fancy, a new |
and most dexterous enlargement of the
term. How could he be exchanged ? The
truth is he has simply been released. He
has come home as we said, just aa he went
away, a stubborn rebel.
There is bnt one view to take of this
case, whatever morbid sympathy may sug
gest. Judge Thompson should be made to
comply with the order of the War Depart
ment, just in a like manner and form as
other persons similarly arrested were made
to comply. We apprehend nothing bnt
the worst consequences if snch a man is
exempted. Better a thousand tiires ex
empt'some of those poor , ignorant orea
tures who are hardly responsible for what
tbe^r think or say. It is of the first impor
tance to the peace and dignity of the Union
cause In "CbTs~ community that Judge
Thompson .should be redneed to the com
mon Ibvel of submission to the State and
national authority.

the paat two weeks. Originally detached
at Clarksburg, on our arrival thare. they
have marched to Buckbanaoo, thence to
Beverly, thence to Webster,-and back to
Clarksburg again, and nary^ecesh.
Since coming to Buckbaqnon, our. regu
1 nient haa been most industrious, orginlxing
a drum corps, electing a chaplain, per
I forming guard and'picket duty, drilling .1?

morn. " .
Oor Chaplain elect ? Rev. Thes; Trainer
of Marshall county. Speaking of chaplains,
we have the most moral, orderly set of
yonths ever organised into a regiment.
Since our out-come we have only had oue
arrest in the camp, and that for A small of
fense. Men were never better conducted,
nor more anxious to do and learn duty. In
battalion drills this corps does surpassing
ly belter than any new regiment I: baa been
my lot to se'o perform. That syren whose
lovely aspect so'Often seduces the soldier
into disgrace, tanglefoot -whisky, is scarce
here and the results are corresponding'^
happy; Our camj)i:n^'Broind is right tn the
Main street of the Tillage, at the east end,
on beautiful ground, nearly level and turfy.
About a mile from camp is the battalion
drill grounds, a pasture field of 30 acres of
smooth grassy lawn, clearing us of suffo
cation from dust. Water is abundant in
the immediate vieinlty of the tents. ..Alto
gether the boys think this is gay soldipr
ing, and I ooincidc with them heartily. We
have few exciting episodes. Occasionally
a prisoner comes through on his way to the
Wheeling Bastile. and must be taken caro
of for a day or ao. A scouting excursion
afforded a good deal of laqgb lately. Some
marauders were tearing up Ned'about la
miles off, stealing Union horses and cattle.
Col. Harris sent off .boat 100 soldiers to
press horses. The process is peculiar. A
quiet fellow is riding along tbe street when
Army Blue commands him to get off.
Expostulation is vain, as vain as the
horses delicate Constitution and body.?
I never knew how many ' dereits
tbe horses had in this country till
then. In fifteen minutes ona hundred
mounted infantry, guns in sling, under
charge of an officer went out of town with
immense eolat. However, the expedition
only got there too late to oatch tbe aconn
drels.
A sad accident ocourred in Company F,
Oapt, rricbarfl's, yesterday afternoon. A
young man named John.Sheets accidentally
shot himself through the wri?t with hfs
musket. It seems be was sick, complain
ing of dixxiness, and at the baok of the
camp alone, having gone out to draw an
old load from tbe piece, the vertigo attaok

charged, taking effect aaabove. The small
bones of the left.wrist are pulverlxed, bnt
Dr. Buggies thinks the hand may be saved.
The wounded man is in the hospital here,
comfortably and well attended.
To-day the 10th Virginia leaves here Tor
Bulltown, and-we will be their euccessor.
Pr. Bryan has arrived at Clarkeburg and
is serving with the men there. Our ambu

Gi horses, 14 wagons, and 4 ambulances.

Editors Intelligencer :
Sioce oar last we hare noticed Id jour
columns an inquiry raised in reference to
the 11th regiment, whether they bad re
ceired sew gone, or different gone from
which they were armed with in the firat
place. We are happy to say that the gam
are now at the Qosrtermaster's Department,
and the exchange is to take place tb(? af
ternoon, t!s. giving worthiest cans for
new ones.. The boy? hare had this in an
ticipation for some time, and it would be
rain to attempt to describe the good effect
it has bad upon the men. All orer the
camp m*y be hesfd.tbe expression "we
are going to get new Rons, then we can
gire the rebels their rights."
There are four companies yet absent,but
we are expecting them soon to rejoin os.?
They are as follows: A, E, G, I. Those
that are now encamped hero are adTanciog

the world. Shall vre recognixe and us. It
wisely, or shall we, blindly and foolishly,
refuse to see tbat we hate now our future
ia our bands, and enter upon tbat down
ward career which leads eventually to ruin
nod oblivion ?
Wo tremble at this tremendous responsi
bility. We cannot forget bow for nearly
half a century the people of this country
have been taught in the church, the school,
and on the politioal platform, that evil Is
our good; tbat the one sacred thing in all
our institutions Is the system of slavery.?
But we remember aUo with gladness and
with hope that the counter leasou has been
taught by a portipu of the press, by the pul
pit. b"r. and there faithful to its sacred
trust, by the w.yside by self denying men,
that Liberty ia above , all things precious,
the one tbiog without which there is uo
truthful and permanent national life, and
bo individual development out of which
great nations grow. Wo remember how
The events of the past two years have done
and undooe the work of half acentury; and
the people of 1860 have become, in 186J, a
people of a totally different and new intel
ectual and moral life. Whereas in 1860
we bowed before, while we devoutly be
lieved in the safety and the wisdom of Hu
man Slavery, in 180J we know it is our
curse and our danger, costing us already
the lives of hundreds of thousands of our
yonog'men, and threatening the dearer life
of the nation itself , ' ,fc.
But while we rejoice and hope for the
best, we still tremble. There are among
us men whose, foolishness will not depart
from them though it be brayed in a mortar
?other men'who will not cease from wicked
ways while in the flesb. But the emanci
pation which the President has proclaimed
is th<* emancipation of more than four mil
lions of black slaves; it is the freedom of
well-nigb twenty milltona from a thraldom
they have been taught to revnrenee. Have
they learned aright tbe lessons of the last
two years? Do they now know that hey
also have been lo bondage, and will tbey
accept this great boon of freedom which a
wise ruler offers them? We hope so ; we
devoutly pray that wisdom may enter into
the hearts of all the people. Let the Pres
ident know that everywhere throughout
all the laud he is hailed as Wisest and
Best, and that by this great deed of enfran
chisement 19 an oppressed people?a deed,
the doing whereor was nover before vouch
safed to any mortal ruler?he re creates a
nation. ' ,
For such indeed is the fact. By a sin
gle blow he has palsied the right arm of
rebellion. Slavery is the root of tho re
hellion ; he digs it up by the roots. Pro.
petty in slaves, the apalling events of the
ast two year s show, is dangerous to the
existeoce of a naiioo; be destroys such
properly. The rebels are dependent for
their daily subsistence upon their slaves ;
he makes those slaves freemen. As slaves
tbey are the mere subjects of rebels, to toil
for them, to be used by them as beasts of
burden ; as freemen tbey are the loyal al
lies of a free, Government, asking ooly in
retaru ipo protection, which such a Gov
eroment gives to the humblest citizen. By
a word the President transforms a Stale
sunk in tlie semi-barbarism of a medieval
age to the light and civilisation of the
nineteenth Christian century. As it is
not extravagant lo say tbat God had bid
away this continent until the human race
bad reached its manhood and was 6t to
enter upon so fair an inheritance, so.it is
a simple statement of a truth to say that
In all the ages there has been no act ot
one man and of one people BO.sublime as
the emancipation of a race?no act so
fraught iplth good l"?r l^e ?*on* ot men
in all tipie to come.
1s lb* President in advance of the peo
ple? We think not, and the evidence of
only four aod twenty hours already sus
tains our conviction. There are men of
tho baser sort who will carp and cavil, who
prophesy evil, and strive to make their
prophesies tbeir own fnlBlment. When
was it ever otherwise? But this man sprung
from the people, has ganged tbo wisdom
and the virtue of the commonalty, and
speaks with tbeir volie. The sagacity and
the integrity which so distinguish him have
no more failed blm now than before. All
good men praise him; all far-seeing men ap
prove his action; all brave men applaud tbo
courage which unuppsUcd by accumulating
danger, never falters, never yields, but pun
forth Its strength at the right moment, and
plants the blow in.the right place. Wis
the way to conquer; it must conquer; it
cannot fail. The reserved strength of the
people has never been wantiogia any crisis
that has called it forth. We mark off the
war into periods when some new,exigency
has manifested it with unexpected power.
It began with the fall of Sumter, when
treason faded away like darkness before the
light. The Proclamation of Emancipation
will bring out tbat full strength, and the
Onion as It should be will date from the day
of its consummation.
