Last Monday being the anniversary of John the Baptist, it was da is celebrated by the the Masonic Fraternity of lulersburg. There were with them on the occasion 'quite a large number of the Brethren of Akron, Canton, Massilon, and other towns. The new Masonic Hall in Millersburg, a taste fully and appropriately furnished room, or rooms was also dedicated oa that day. The oration was delivered on the Public Square, by Eon Ii. V. .Biezce of Akron, and is well spoken of by those who heard it. The occasion brought together large numbers of our citizens, and ev erything passed off pleasantly. tgjThe illustrated papers are of stirring in' terest these times. Besides the vast amount of reading they contain, the illustrations are worth five times the price asked for the?, be ing correct views of battles and battlegrounds, fortifications and encampments, maps and dia grams showing the position of our own army and that of the traitors. They cost six cents, find if bought regularly by every family, as they should be, and preserved, will make a nice illustrated history of the war, which five times the cost of it -will not buy -when the war is over.

We can understand how it may be worth while of J Err Davis and his crew, just now to seek an armistice,but we cannot ex actly see the immediate advantage to Uncle Sam in such an arrangement With the Xorth unanimously banded against them, when they felt certain of having at least one-half on their side without money or credit with an over whelming army threatening them by land, and a navy blockading every outlet to the sea with indispensable supplies of every kind cut off by land and water, and their privateers denied the use of foreign ports with the certainty thus staring Item ia the face of seeing their army, not long hence, mutinous, not .only through want of wages and food, but the discovery of the infamous falsehoods by which ambitions leaders have lured them into rebellion against the mildest form of hnman government with the. horrible conviction ever present that they are sleeping on a volcano, readyat any moment to burst beneath .them, and that nothing can prevent this war from gradually expanding in to one of liberation; if wickedly persisted in it will be infinitely more strange if the Reb els do xor.soon see the necessity of retracing their guilty steps. But we very much mistake the spirit of our people if, after all this terrible los3 of blood, treasure, and commercial prosperity; if after the gross insult offered their country, in the face of all Christendom; if, after they have al ready sacrificed and are prepared to sacrifice, for blotting out this stain on her escutcheon, they are going to be quietly hocus-pocussed into putting down their arm, until they see :he way perfectly clear, not only for temporary .but perpetual security against the recurrence ofsuch disgraceful attempts against her peace and honor. The rattlesnake of Secession must not be scotched but killed before we can indulge in feelings of safety for the future. Whenever the Seceded -States like the penitent, weeping, "Maid of Milan" come back in distress, and singing "Home, sweet Homel" they will find a dear old homestead ready to receive them, and their joyful sisters eager to hear them again in fond embrace. If, on the contrary, Davis fc Co. are madmen enough to attempt any scheme of compromise, merely as the means of forcing unfair advantages, or getting breath ing time to mature their nefarious plots, they are very likely to.be treated as madmen fre-i quently are, viz: get knocked down first, then argued with alterward. t5FTbe policy of our rulers towards the. rebels must be changed; or the attempt to con quer them will most assuredly result iu defeat and disgrace.

Federal volunteers captured by the enemy, are given a drum-head trial, and sent to eternity without preparation., That is the difference on the two sides of the line, and wc are not surprised.that bets arc offered, in Wash, ington that the Government has not the courage to hang a traitor. Will nothing short of the capture of Washington convince the .Adminis tration that the traitors cannot be coaxed into a return to" allegiance? The rebels hang Union men upon the slightest pretext. 'They do no hesitate to murder, burn and destroy where it will advance theircause. Could they get hold of the President, or any member of his Cabi net, thcy'would hang him without trial, and abuse his body after the breath was out of it. Dox't Cet. Report says that the U.

CaptfCrawford, of Defiance, formerly of New Philadelphia, was accidently shot by one. of the pickets, on last Wednesday night, and was buried with the honors of war yesterday "morn morning, at 8 o'clock. The facts in the case arc, as near as I can learn, as follows: The captain, was going the rounds to sec that the pickets' were, oil .doing their 'duty; "when Tie came to this one, seeing the picket standing up. against-it tree-Terr quietly for some minutes, thought he was asleep, and that he -would slip up and surprise him. The picket was watching what he thought to be a man crawling along a fence, in" an opposite direction to where the Captain was, and thinking it was an enemy in the act of picking him off his post, was watch ing it very closely, when the Captain came up and struck the bayonet of the pickefsgun with his sword; the picket having his gun cocked for the supposed enemy, wheeled and charged bayoneton the Captain, and in the excitement discharged his gun, the contents of which en tered the Captain's breast, killing him instant ly. Capt. Crawford was beloved by all his company, was a good commander anil would no doubt have led his men to victory, had that monster. Death, spared him. He was a lawyer by profession, and is known td many citizens ot Holmes and Tuscarawas. His father is a wealthy farmer and resides near New Philadel phia. I notice a telegraphic report in your paper from Cincinnati of the Philltppi engagement it gives the lGth regiment no credit, when G companies of our reg. were In the chase. None of Company G were among them, except the Drum Major, B. J. Moanis. I can't call it a battle. There were borne 40 or 50 killed ami a number wounded, all on the secession side. They did not fire a gun on tho Federal troops. One of the prisoners .shot Col. Kelly with a pistol, but he is not dead, nor do 1 think he is in ranch danger. He was shot through the left shoulder.

Wc did not get here in time to have a hand in the taking of this place three companies of our regiment being Kept bacK tor the purpose of guarding Grafton; however, we did not lose much, as the Secessionists did not make even an effort to withstand our forces, but retreated at the firing of the signal gun. There is no doubt of the bracry of the Northern soldiers. Those who witnessed the fight say the boys rushed down the hill side firing their guns, yelling at the top of ther voices, driving the poor rebels before them like leaves before the coming storm. Ma ny amusing stories are 'told of the fizht. The enemy retreated southward and are now over forty miles from us. 1 conversed with an in dividual a few days aero, who had made his k. cape from "them but a short time before, and 1m said there were now not more than 1000 of them in camp; that they were greatly dissatisfied. 1 wo companies nad not returned since the ta king of this place, and that qnite a number were' waiting for an opportunity to escape. .since mat wme, a understand one Whole com pmy has deserted, and wc have trot the Can- tain of it a prisoner.

The Connecticut picket was ordered to occupy tue' position held by tho rebel picket. It is reported that on taking possession of the ground one of the Connecticut men was killed and tour wounded. The loss of the other side supposed to" be greater. This report needs confirmation, although it is from n reliable source. I learn from Gen. Wald bridge that the Governors of all tho'Slates have replied to his letters inquiring whether they were in favor of a vigorous prosecution of the war. They are a unit in declaring that they are ready with men and money to bring the war to a close. Col. Ritchie, of Gov. Andrew's stnff, telegraphed, to the Governor to-night, at the request of the Government, to start seven of the ten regiments accepted yes terdav on to-morrow. It is reported that the. seven regiments referred lo have been drilling some time, and arc thoroughly ap pointed and rcadv to start. It is now evident tiiat the main blow against the rebels will be struck from the Federal Capital. The army of Washing ton now consists.of full forty-five thousand effective men, comprising two infantry and one cavalry regiment of regulars, twenty- one regiments from tbe city and State of New York, five from Pennsylvania four from Maine, three from Connecticut, thro 3 from Michigan, two from Ohio, two from Massachusetts, one from Rhode Island, and six batteries of Light Artillery. Ten thousand more men will be added to this immense body next week. Ten thousand, with the District Militia will be sufficient for the events of the Capital that a grand armv of 45,000 as spirited troops as can be found anywhere, can be moved against. With the aid ot Ueneral Patterson's Division, they will be more than sufficient to break tbe lines of the Rebels and drive them in the direction of Richmond. surprise has been expressed in some quarters at tbe failure of Gen. Scott to prevent the erection of batteries at various points. on the right bank, of the Potomac. The impending advance of the Union army towards tttcumond, however, will either compel the Rebels to remove their batter ies, or render them an easy prey to the Union forces. Ucn. bcott is simply mdis posed, to take, at a great sacrifice of life what will be had in due time without blood shed. Gen. McClelland has been ordered to sweep the last vestige of secession both out of Southwestern and Northwerlern Virginia. His army will be strongly rein forced for immediate operrlions south of the Kanawha river. The heavy "seacoast -guns are now near ly all mounted in the batteries on the Vir ginia side and regular artillerists are daily drilled at them for several hours An opinion is entertained here that tho main body of tho rebel army has not re turned to the neighborhood of Harper' Ferry, but only detachments to attract the attention of General Patterson's division by creating the impression of the return, of all ben. Johnson s force lo prevent lb sending forward of any part of Gen. Pat terson's troops to btrenglhen the Federal columns here. There is reason to beliv that in the meantime Ihe principal part of uen. Johnstons cemmand are now in the vicinity of Leesburg and Edward's Eerry, The Time's despatch says: Secretary be ward gives notice that hereafter no pass ports to leave the country or to pass with in the lines of the rebels, signed by the Foreign Ministers or Consuls, will be good unless conntcrsigncd by the btate Depart ment. A special messenger just arrived from Fortress Monroe, says two men arrived there who had escaped from Sewelrs Point, It seems the battery at sewelrs Point composed of five Columbiads, six pieces of smaller bore, and three rifled cannon all fourteen guns. Between the Point and Norfolk are two other batteries, armed with the stolen guns from the Navy Yard, At aewell s Point thero are 500 men Norfolk 15,000 men most of them now under orders for Richmond; and at inter mediate points about 2,000. Among them aro 15,000 South Caroliniaus, two full regiments from Louisiana, and one from Georgia. The last three havo been so much dissatisfied with their treatment and prob able destiny, that Howell Cobb, who has two sons in the Georgia regiment, was sent tor trom tticbmond to address them. He bade them be of good courage, nnd pledged his word of honor that within three months tho Confederate army would not o'-Iy occupy Washington, but would have subdued the entire Union forces of the .North. The men also say that the rebel leaders will force them through bloody war, and persist in their treason to the end. JLbcy also say that the most ex aggerated reports of outrages committed upon women by Northern soldiers, reached the rebel camps, these base fabrications acting as stimulent upon tbe men. Uovernor 1'ickens has issued a proclama tion forbidding any more South Carolina troops from leaving. Palmettbdom ex presses' tho belief That -Northern hordes contemplate an invasion of the sacred soil of S. C. via Charleston, and says that tho first duty of South Carolinians is to tho Stale.

The expedition will bo .large enough to take tho field and form a nuclo us around which the Union men, under Houston, can rally. The N. Y.

Scott-nnd his Staff, and tho vn- Tious Generals and Colonels of Regiments now in and about Washington will be pres ent. It is understood that Major Gener als Butler, Banks, and Dix have all been summoned, ocott win submit Ins pro gramme for prosecuting tho war. That the Rebels have changed theirs cannot be doubted, and hence it is believed Gen. Scott has some new project to submit at this great council of war. Our Government has demanded of the Prussian Minister that the exequator of Trappman, Prussian Consul at Charleston who recently left Boston with dispatches from Jeff. Davis to his Commissioners in Europe shall be withdrawn. This demand will be complied with by that Govern ment. It is stated that all dispatches to and from the South that go to Europe are sent tbrough the foreign Legations. This matter will undoubtedly be inquired into. FORT MONROE, June 23. Gen.

Fears are entertained of sad work this afternoon. WASHINGTON, June 24. Fears are entertained in towns along the low part of tho .Potomac, of a rising of slaves, and a general stagnation of trade was manifest. F. A. Aiken, of this District, formerly of Vermont, tho Secretary of the .National Democratic parly, has proposed to the war Department, to raise a regiment forthwith of Northern Democrats, for active service during the war, and to testify their appre ciation of Mr. Lincoln's efforts lo maintain tbe Government intact. Chas. H. Foster announces himself as an unconditional Union man from the First District of North Carolina. In a handbill dated al Muriresboro, he notifies the peo ple of tbe'District that' by a law of North Carolina the first Thursday in August is tbe day fixed for the election of Represent ative in Congress, nnd on that day ho in vites the electors to give him their suffrages, and cast their ballots without fear or in timidation. I have lo-day an explanation of the rea son why tbe Rebels resort to such tricks as that where they captured tho captain of a company belonging lo one ot tbe Lon- neclicut Regiments on Saturday last, and why they pick off the pickets and capture every man they can reach. They are gathering all such prisoners and holding them as hostages for the per sonal safely of the pirates. They intend to bang an equal number of prisoners of war and thus retaliate upon loyal men tbe pun ishment inflicted by us on buccaneers. - WASHINGTON, June 24. NEW YORK , June 22. Herald's special from Washington says: Gentleman here who are in communica tion with the Unionists of East Tennessee, are of the opinion that the Convention call ed lo meet at KnoxviIIe, will pursue a course similar to that adopted by the Wheel ing Convention in Virginia. They will re pudiate tbe usurpers at Nashville, elect a uovernor nnd organize a btate government as near as possible in conformity with the provisions of the State constitution, and call upon the loyal men of Tennessee to rally lo their support. The Uufon men thero are at the fighting point. All they want from the Govern ment -is arms, when they have these they will take care of themselves, and close the Cumberland Gap R R. against the rebels. It has been the main avenue for reinforce ments and supplies to t ho rebels in Virgin ia. This movement will supply another segment to.thejcirclejof Uniqn .men that- ia being gradually tightened around the rebels in Virginia. Gov. Hicks' Sharp Message. The following is the text of a hist mes sage from Gov. Hicks to the secession Mary land .Legislature, a body that appears to be courting tho halter with tho spirit of rowdy redels : STATE OF MARYLAND, EXECUTIVE CHAMBER, June 17, 1861. Gentlemen of the Hovse of Delegates. In response to your order of this date, informing me that certain arms shipped by the Adjutant General on board ihe schoon er II.B. Nelson, were seized on ihe 14th of May by Gen. Butler, and inquired wheth er said arms were seized with my knowl edge aud consent for what reason they are kept from the poseession of Capt. Moore and company whether any action has been taken on my part to cause said arms to bo delivered up to tbe Slate au thority in order to bo given up to Capt. Moore, I have to say: To the first inquiry That it is imperti nent. To the second That I refer you to Gen. Butlor for nn answer. To tho third That chapter 188 of the acts of 1860 makes it the duly of the Ad jutant General to distribute the arms, in ac cordance with tho requirements of the code of public general laws, and that the in quiry should bo addressed to him. THOMAS A. HICKS. From Grafton and Phillip?!.. A gen tleman who arrived yestefllay from Phil lippiand Grafton, reports that there is the greatest activity at both these places, and that all sorts of reports are in circulation, Tho artillery company stationed at tiratton after practicing several hears, moved on out the railroad towards Philhnpi, Wednes day evening. "Everybody anticipated warm wors soon, though-very few could tell why tney tnougnt so. xney teel it in tbei bones The Federal forces had abandoned the village of Philltppi, and had taken ud a position on a bill overlooking the town, and commanding its important approaches. Aoey uad also commenced throwing up en trenchments. Thero was not a chick nor child in Phillippi, alltbe families having departed. Whtehng Int. 2st. JSTGeneral Beauregard, in his procla mation oi tuo otn msi., spoke of the abo lition hosts of tho North, as "murdering uuu imprisoning ooutnern citizons," "con fiscating and destroying Southern proper ty, '-committing other acts of violence and outrage too shocking nnd revolting to btj enumerated," "abandoning all the rules of civilized warfare, nnd proclaiming by their acts that their war cry was Beauty and Booty," and he added lhat everything dear to oouincrn men, their honor, and tho Hon or of their wives nnd daughters, must bo consmerod at stake. And now how does Gen. Beauregard, in such a condition of things, guard tho hon or and safety of his own family ! At the vory timo when his "Beauty nnd Booty" proclamation was issued, his wife was in New York, and it is stated that sho is thero still. Tho Southern General places his family for security at the headquarters of those wnom ne denounces to ine woria as setting at naught all the principles of civ ilization and committinc outrages too shocking and revolting to numanity to be' enumerated.
