FROM THE FORTY-SECOND REGIMENT. 26 BRIGADE, 7th DIVISION, ARMY OF THE OHIO, Wilson's Tuesday, June 10th, 1862. Dear Democrat : Afler a four dy' march, we louml ourstivej at (lie foot of the grand old Cumberlands, in front o( Wil.-on'a Gup. Cos. A and B, 4?d 0., A and B, I61I1 0., A und D. 2J Ky., un der command of Lieut, Dan. A, Pardie, 4 2 J O., mode a ribl march, and took possession of this Gap, meeting wilh no resistance except from the enemy's pick els, (mounted,) who took a bee line for camp, leaving ihree good horses and sev eral guns behind. This Gap il a mere nolch in the range, only a cow poili pass ing through it. It lies about midway be. I ween Cumberland and Big Creek Gups. The enemy has a strong force at both of these gaps. At noon lo-day, our pickets reported a body of cavalry approaching along the path from Ihe valley below. We posted ourselves in ambush. and wailed their approach. When they came within range, we fired. They fled without firing a gun. We captured three or four guns and pistols. Our force is removine the timber and alone blockade from the road leading lo Rodger's Gup, which is but I J miles from this gap. From the time we came into Ky., until the piesent, we have been con stantly in the midst of the most sublime natural scenery, but, when I stood upon a rocky point and looked two thousand feel beneath me, to the valley. I was filled wilh wonder Rnd admiration. It editmed all that 1 had seen before. Powell's Val ley is about three miles wide, and beau tiful beyond description. Its inhabitants are industrious. The lari?e fields of aving wheat, already ripe and rendv for the reaper, speak of the industry of the people. They are Irut Union, almost lo a man. All crops look well. and. if Rebel cavalry can be kept out, who have been living upon this people, and commuting all sorts of crimes Irora the midnight mur der to the most paltry theft, peace and plenty win soon De restored. Most or our roroe bad descended into the valley when Gen. Morgan received orders from Gen. Btjell to recross the mountain and report at Williamsburir. Ky. This caused a cood deal of swearinir. We faced about, aod, raiher unwillingly and wilh long faces, began to climb the mountain ; but, before we proceeded far, the Gen. received news of the evacuation of Cumberland Gap. Presently the Gen. orders all lo turn about, and izo again lo thevalley. The prospect now is, that we shall push toward Nashville soon. A squadron of Ashby't Rebel cavalry are prowling about. We have had skir mishes with them every day since our ar rival, but it amounted to nothing except the loss of a few horses and ruff aim on their part. We have not seen our tents for a week. We sleep in the woods, and subsist on hard bread and salt pork. The health of Ihe 43d continues cood. The Geauga boys are all sound. We brought our knap Backs.four days' rations and eighty rounds of ammunition over the mountains. We hope not to be pack mules much longer. Ink is out of the question. I suppose these pencil marks will not be very ac ceptable, but it is the best a soldier can do. More soon. P. June lUrt. Our camp was alarmed last night. Our Regiment and the ar tillery were in position for battle all night. All is quiet to day. Forage is quite plenty. Corn, corn-blades and oats are abundant. Cherries and blackberries are ripe. Fruit of all kinds is plenty, and peaches especially. P. FROM THE TWENTY-NINTH REGIMENT. CAMP NEAR LURAY, June 13th, 1862. Editor Democrat : Having ben a read er of your paper for eight yoari, I bnpa you ill excuse me lor attempting to describe to you our soldinring in "Dixie." Soon after the battle ot Winchester, wa got inarobing orders while in camp near New Market. About the 12th of May, we commenced our march across the ISlue Ridge Mountains. Though rsggod and tired, our men looked remarkably well. With good martial music and the gallant Col. Buckloy leading us, wa marched wilh a proud stop, fouling confi dent the 29th would alwava bo ready to bring this Rebellion to a speedy termination, if hard marches and fighting would do it. Our march across the mountains was verv fatiguing, many of our mon complaining in a jocose manner about their old shoes sece ding from thoir foot. Wo were watched cloiely by Rebel cavalry all along through me mountains, anor making tuoir appear ance on the adjacent bills, to observe our position in line of march, thinking they might have a chance to capture our baggage- train, in this tnoy were disappointed. The baggage was placed in the cuntor of each Brigade, artillery and cavalry in front and rear. One company of our cavalry scouts was attacked by flve hundred Kebel cavalry, and surrounded, when Capt. Casoy, of Ihe JlOtb Pensjlvanla. rallied to thoir support, dispersing the ttobeis, killing three, taking several prisoners, and saving our cavalry Iroin boing captured. Too mueh praise can not be given to the gallant Captain. His conduct, before and after the skirmish, is worthy the bignest praise. The scenery all along through the mountains is beautiful and romantic, but heavy rains, tirosome msrehos and little rest dopiivod us of the comfort a traveler would bave in passing through such place In peaceable times. After twelve days' bard marching, wa ar rl" J at Fredericksburg, rested two days, every minute expeeting orders to mar on to Richmond. We were surprised when we got orden to march back to New Market. i W, had not time to rub the stiffness out of our bones when we wore on the road again. Marching aovoral day. and nights, we got lo I bo mountain pas. that loads in Now Mar ket t found the bridge burnnd, and camped over night near Iho river. Our orders the next morning were lo advance on this side of Ihe mountain. The 3.1 and 4th lirig ades, though tired and worn out from hard marching, were soon on ihe road again. On the 4th of June, the 4;h Brigade arrived at Port Republic, where Ihe Reb els were discovered in strong force on ihe other side of ihe Shenandoah River. The bridge across the river was guarded with several piece of arlilery. The 7th In diana Kt'iiment, assisted by some of ihe 1st Virginia Cavalry, advanced on the bridge, but were repulsed with some loss. In Ihe afternoon, the 31 Brigade arrived, and halted within one mile of the bridge, made coffee, and rested during Ihe niihl. About two thousand Rebels crossed the bridge, and attacked us at six o'clock in the morning. Our forces, at the lime, did not number more than three thousand. The fact is, the bridge was to have been buined the day before, to prevent the Rebels from crossing. Owing to some misunderstanding among l lie officers, they failed to set fire to the bridge, which ft It our small force in a dangerous place: The boys fought like ligers. The battle lasted about five hours, when we were compelled by an overwhelming force to retreat from the Geld. Gen. Shields ar rived within (ix miles of the battle ground, with the 1st and 2d Brigades, in tiuie to save our baggage from the enemy, and stopped the retreat. Col. Buckley was the last Col. on the field. The 29ih had no orders to retreat. The gallant Buckley, finding himself sur rounded, told bis men lo rally to the mountain, and mate good their escape. He, wilh about thirty men, wandered through the mountain for two days. Gen. Shields ordered Ihe bridge to be burned. His subordinate officers say they had no such orders. Any way, a great blunder was made by somebody, and we had to pay for it. 1 think we killed as many of them as they did of our men perhaps more. Our Regiment numbers now about two hundred men. Lieut. Col. Clark is among the missing. Captainl.uce.Co. E, was killed. We are now in camp near Luray, awaiting further orders. Yours, respectfully, O. T. S. Simon Bolivar Buckner. A late number of the Nashville Union has the following timely remarks in re lation to this blatant traitor : "It is said that the rebel concern has determined to release or exchange no more prisoners until the Government will give up Gen. Buckner. We hope thai tiiis insolence will have no effect what ever, and that our Government has too much self-retpect lo tullei its policy lo be dictated by the bullying of the rebels.--The release of Buckner would be hailed as a Gou-scnd by every rebel in Ken tucky. It would inspire tliem wilh fresh seal. That infamous villain is far belter acquainted wilh means and agents for in flicting harm in Ihe cause of loyalty in Kentucky, than any other man in the State. He has studied treason for years, and Has improved his infernal art lo a high pitch. It would be a most pernicions step lo release this wretch. He is doublv dyed with the guilt of rebellion, and of the intensest hypocrisy, treachery and peijtirv. He persuaded thousands of the sons ol Union pareols that there would be no crime or dishonor in serving to de fend the Government for the sake of get ting its arms and then turning traitor to it. He destroyed millions of dollars' worth of public and private pioperty, and as (he first who blew up locks, lore down dams, and burned railroad bridges. A Mississippi officer told him on Green river that if be wanted lo destroy the public property of the people of Kentucky, he might do it, but he would see him in bell before ho would suffer Mississtppians to assist htm. We earnestly proiest against Lis release on any terms. In the first place it would be wrong and dangerous to release him, and in the second place il would be allowing rebels to dictate to our Government. Let Buckner stay in prison until the end ot the war,ana then be tried for his crimes." A mono tho other curious Instruments ex hibited in tho Philosophical Instrument De partment in the London Great Exhibition, is a machine for microscopic writing. With this machine il is stated that the words "Matthew Marshall, Bank of England," can he written in tho two and a half millionth of an inch in length ; and it i. actually .aid mat calculation, muclo on this data show that the wholo Bible can bo written twenty two times in the space of a square inch. Tho words to be written microecopically are written in pencil, In ordinary characters, on a shuot of paper at the bottom of the instru ment. But the pencil with which this is done, communicates by a sorios of levers and gimbals with another minute pencil and table at the top, by moans of which the or dinary writing of the pencil and Ihe mi oroscopio writing both move iu unison, though the motion of the lulter Is so grad uated that a stroke of a quartor of an inch at the botloui is only a stroke of a millionth of an inch at Ihe top, the shape and charac ter of both marks being neverlhleucs precise ly alike in outline. As a matter of course, the mieroscopio writing at the top is only visible undor powerful magnifiers, and Ihe object of the machine is lo mark bank notes with oertaio minute signatures for the pre vention oi lorgery.

An incident occurred in our locality, which I think is worthy of publication, t'oe. Firestone, familiarly called "Old Doc," who combines wilh the qualities ui pnyaician tnai oi a goou orator, was one day, during last campaign, going up to a small town to make a political speech a -squatter (Sovereignty" one. VVhen a few miles from (own ho over took a lean, lank specimen of the genui Yankee, who atked him for a ride. The doctor, wuu his usual generosity, gave mm a place Desiae airm After the uul corhments upon the weather. Doe. inquired his destination. "Wall," answered the Yankee, "I'm going up to the Democratic meeting, "Ah I indeed," savs the Doctor, "do you know who are the speakers ?" 'Wall ,1 hearn tell old Doc Firestone is to speak : but ! would not believe a word be said he is the meanest man in the country 1" "Ah 1 indeed ?" says Doc. for he knew the Yankee did not know him per sonally "and why is he such a mean man ?'" "Why, don't you know that lie is the greatest grave-robber in Northern Ohio? He thinks no more ol Stealin a corpse, than he does of eaiin." "But still." says Doe., "it does not follow that he is a liar ?'' "Yes, it does, says the Yankee ; for any man that will rob a grave will lie 1" Well, thus the conversation went on in one confidential tirade from the Yankee, against "Doc. Firestone," until they ar rived at the town. When they came within sight of the crowd (which was a large one,) three cheers Were triven, with a hearty good will, for "Doc. Firestone." The Yankee's face elongated, and his eyes almost started from their sockets. Turning slowly around, he faced Doc. aod says : "Be you Doc. Firestone ?" "Yes," answered Doc, his eyes twink ling with mirth. "Doc. Firestone from Wooster ?" "Yes." "I'm obleeged for the ride." He sprang from the buggy and disap peared. The joke was told, but no Yankee could be found that day. We wil! guarantee that the Doe. made a prime speech afler that. A man who could humor such a "tail" joke as that, must be capital on the stump. . Skitcii or Gxh. Port Gen. Pope Is a native of Kentucky, and entered West Point in 1838. He graduated in 1842, as Brevet Second Lieutenant of Topograph ical Engineers. He was breveted First Lieutenant for gallant and meritorious con duct at Monterey, and subsequently bre veted Captain for his gallantry during the battle of Bueoa Vista. In consequence of having some dispute with Jctlerson Davis, f Secretary of War under President Pierce.) Cpt. Pope resigned, and en gaged in civil pursuits in Illinois. On tho breaking out of the present war, he tendered his services to the Government, and be was appointed a Brigadier Gen eral, and assigred to duty in the Western Department. He has distinguished him self on various occasions, and placed his name in the foremost rank of American Generals. 1, Camada Lirr Oct in thc Cold. A recent editorial article in the London Timet Informs the people of Canada that they mast defend themselves from Amer iean invasion, as England eannot do it. The Timet says : "It is not in our power to scna lonb irom tuts lime island a mill tary force sufficient to defend tho Iron tier of Canada against the numerous ar mies and discipline in the great school of the present civil war." And acain "Should the colony wish lo pat an end to it (the connection,) we would never draw a sword to defend it, and, if Canada will not fight to protect its independence from foreign invasion, neither wilt England. From the London Times, May 28. Europe "Perplexed" at the View of the Military Power of the Union. The war in America is sweeping over the land wilh the velocity and destructive ness ol a hurricine, and all the ordinary feelings and pursuits ofnen are absorbed in its vortex. Bulletins from the army succeed each other with rapidity enough lo satisfy even Ihe appetite of the New York public, sharpened as it was with twelve months' famine. The scale of op- orations is absolutely tremendous. The Federals have 700,000 men in arms, and me army estimates actually lor Ihe pres ent year exceeds 125,000.000 sterling. Thee forces are no longer stationary. In the Etst. as well as ihe West, ihey are so actively engaged that every mail brings us the intelligence of a battle, an attack, an advance, or a conquest. President Lincoln was right enough, when in his homely langusge he described this WAras a "big job." It is about the biggest job of the kind ever seen, no mere "ninety days" business or temporary disturbance. The "insurrection" which Mr. Seward believed lo be "waning" st the close of last year, now covers half a continent with desolation and havoc, and we are warned that the battle known to be imminent will exceed in severity any hitherto fought. ' m : The whole story is a mystery as well as a marvel. It it almost at hird to believe what hat occurred as to imagine what wilt ultimately happen. Twelve months have changed an untaxed Republic into two military Uonlederacies, engaged in des perate war with each other, and bur dened already with debts exceeding; in charge the national debt of Great Britain. The number of men actually maintained in arms is lomeUnng incredible, i rom population smaller than that of these islands, the Northerners bave not only sent 700,000 volunteers into the field, but have kept them there since last summer. No wonder that "trade is paralysed" and industry neglected. In fact, there is now buf one trade in Americn, and '.hat is the trade of war. We know that il is a traffic which can never end in (rain, but the! Americans are embracing it with ail US costs and consequences, as the most en- rapturing pnrsui'. in the world.

Xew i i ..... .i j orie is enennmea wun ine potuion and potUion prospects of the nation. It is at least. however, a satisfaction la. reflect that no European Power can be blamed for any inoident of this dreadful war. Words of Warning. Ex Govornor Noil S. Brown, of Tennessee, spoke at a Union mass meeting in Columbia, i n I hat Slate, on Ihe 2J ult., and warned the robots that thoir last hope of success dustroyod. Ho said : "Yes, soe tho workings of this war. You will lose your young men, the flower of your population you will lose your commerce, your cotton, your tobaceo. Tho air is thick wilh Ihoir smoke, and the waters of the Mississippi are swoolenod with your sugar. This ruin will lull on your credit, and your banks. when you are dead. It will tell on your friends and kindred. I con gratulate mysolf that I never urged a man to go to war. But I reprove no one for doing so. I feel more like weeping than uttoring reprnachos, but I fuel it to be my duty to stop the wrongs of this war, if I can, for Iho future. The Prosident and Congress have both said emphatically, that they bad no wish interfere wilh slavery, or lo disturb the rights of property. But el ihe same time Iho President had intimated that he rosr.rved lo himself lo judge what might be a militarv necessity in the luturo, if the South persisted in waging this war with stubborn opposition. And, my word for it, rathor iban allow the negroes to continue giving aid to iho Southern army, he will emancipate every slave in tho South. It will beconohat is called a military necessity, and the que.iion win ho, wnetner tne union or slavery shall perish. He will be certain lossy the latter. Supprso, however, he never does do this I don't say that he will but suppose Ibis war be fought on to the bitter end, what will become of our slaves ? Of what value will thov be : They are running away every day. When the war gets to ihe cotton States, where are large districts densely peopled with blacks almost exclusively, then slavery will bo ruined. The slaves will run loose over the land, and then who loves his family would live among a savage pop ulation. roaming about in search of food and plunder ? The white population will bo ex pelled, or rather self-exilu'f. The question is trough! with trouble. W hot her the Gov ernment wills it or not, emancipation will becomes necessary result of the war, from tho troublo and friction it occasions." The Rebels Agents in Europe Snubbed. The intercepted correspondence of T Butler King, published here some weeks since, has found its way to England, and is mado tho subject of comment by the Lon dou press. The 7'iWj .ays that the letters of the rebel agents abroad give "a dismal picture of wasted energy, and of a long course of decoptire agitation gone through to no purpose and then raps the rebels over tne knuckles in this severe fashion : Thus have tared Ihe Secession agents in thoir own chosen field of action European agitation. Their advorsity is entirely un connected with the fortunes of war. Their maneuvers began at least half a year before any State seceded, and this correspondence bears earlier dates than that of any Confed erate revorse during tho war. They are a set of ignorant, narrow minded, conceited slaveholders and agents of slaveholders- inn-in in judgment una reckless about truth, as slaveholders got to be in all countries and all times. Tbey despised ihe strength of the Free States, not understanding ihe causo of tbat strength; Ihey partly blinded themselves, in the desire to blind others, to the weakness of their own enterprise.- Though their dofeats in the field bad not begun, thoy mutt bave been more or less disooursged oy ineir own failure to obtain support in Europe, even by such reckless prom see and suoh delusive representations as tbey did net soruple to offer; aud now the exposure of their correspondence through tne press must crown tbetr mom ficalion.

The deliberations of the Convention were harmonious, anJ Ihe organisation of an emancipation party in Missouri was ac compnanea. i lie uonvenlion did not recommend details ; it proposed only the immediate inauguration ol a policy ol gradual emancipation ; recognizing the propriety of compensating the owners of slave properly for any damage they may sustain, and inviting the co-operalion of all in adjusting prudently the details of the measure.

Adoo. Prepare to Enlist. Undor this startling caption the New York World of Saturday epitomizes In its editorial columns a lengthy and earnest communication from Washington, which, appears among its correspondence. It says : A boodrod thousand more soldiers are) needod this very hour. Oen. McClellan'a army is in danger, not, indeed, of defeat in battlo, but of tailing to accomplish the ob ject for which it made its painful progress to its present position. A doubtful result or drawn game at Rich mood would prolong the war for another full year, with the possibility, the almost certainty, of foreign interference, before its close. So eostly a calamity must be pre vented, if prevention is within the compass or human enort. We bave foolishly un derrated the strength and pluck of the rebuts ; we foolishly stopped recruiting s we foolishly relaxed oor efforts, under Ibe excitement of our Western victories, while) the enemy redoubled his and resorted to a wholesale conscription : we foolishly weak ened ihe army of tho Potomao by dispersion and division of commands, whilo the rebel army in Virginia was strengthened by vig orous concentration. But those blunders belong to the past. The present is too crowded with solemn duties to leave any time for inculpations. The government will do all it can to repair its errors, but their power of efficient action depeuds on the prompt co-operatien of tho people. Every man in Ibo North of suitable military age should hold himself ready to enlist the opportunity will not long bo wanting to such as can leave borne on short notice. Ashbt Dead at Last. Oen. Fremont telegraphs officially that the notorious rebel cavalry officer. Gen. Asbby, was killed at Ihe last fight near Harrisonburg. Ashby has figured very prominently daring the whole wsr in the Shenandoah, Valley, and in Gen. Banks' campaign ha was specially conspicuous. Everyday, almost, we heard of a new skirmish with. "Ashby's Cavalry," and.ifhalf the num ber of his troops reported at different times to be killed were really and truly slain, he must either bare had an immense force under him, or the continually thinned ranks of his regiment must have been, very promptly recruited. Every day ha was routed ; twice a day his men scat tered in confusion ; and three or fonr times a day he and they again appeared in full feather Ashby's Cavalry formed Jackson's rear guard in his vsrious re treats ; they constituted his advance guard in his different forward movements; thoy turned np on each flank, and thoy appeared everywhere. Il is to be hoped thai, now that Ihe force seems to be pretty well broken up, and its commaner killed, we will hear no more of them or him. Exit Ashby New York Timet.
