JlisoMc Ceiebelatiox. 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. For sale at the Post Office.

at last, to comprehend that the crazy bark of
S ccession is floating adrift .on the wide ocean
of anarchy, without chart or compass provis
ions failing a leak,, sprung and symptoms of
munitypn board the rebel Captain and his
officers are evidently beginning to look despair
ingly to some, place of refuge; and the first
they would make for, if they knew how, is
compromise'. 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. Christian forbearance is a very
good thing, sometimes, but it is not suitable, for
the present.Nation.il crisis.while Union men are
being slaughtered in the South, captured reb
els are suffered-to depart after taking an oath
of allegiance,ld fight again in opposition to the
Government When caught in the act of as
sassinating our pickets they are sent to jail to
await trial. 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. S.-Sen

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

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

Dfab After considerable delay, I
agniutakc up my pencil to let vou know how we
arc getting along. Wcare now in camp in Phil
lippi, a small town on Valley River, 18 miles
South-east from Grafton and about 14 miles
North of the Cheat Mountains. 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

amount of provisions and about but) stand of

possession of the town, and some of them are'
living in very fine houses. In three or four
of the houses the soldiers have pianos, on which
they make some'ralber gay music during their
leisure hours: i eruaps you will not object to

Western Virginia yon already know is
rough mountainous country, lo me it seems
but thinly settled. The soil I should think is
good , but it is set up on edge so much that it

What roads I traveled were good. Timber

is truly a leautiful country to travel over. To
our unpracticcd eyes it seems as if nature has
almostoverdone herself in furnishing such grand

of the highest hills, far in the distance may be
seen tue blue range oi mountains, nature s ev

the eye turns from cazine upon these, it rests
on the breakers clothed in living green; rolling
off in vast sweeps like mighty waves of the sea.
Such scenery is well calculated to stir up feel

Mr. Editoe. While tnkin?aviev of nation.

body of rebels in the Southorn portion of this

But we think it eouallv necessary to look

we need not affirm, and we have them in our
own neighborhood and vicinity. Their actions
snow it. .look at them. On Saturday last
(June 15th') the pupils of Sub District No 2.

A collision occurred jliis, morning be
tween a picket guard of tho "Second Con
nec'licut Regiment and'a 'rebel picket near
Falls Church. 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

have -been rather a serious affair, as we
learn from Virginians, who came over for
protection, that between forty and fifty
were killed by the bombs that were thrown
with so much accuracy among them from
a bowizer on this side. A boat load of
rebels were crossing tho mouth of a small
creek, making into tho river, toward the
close of the action, when a bomb from the
battery Durst immediately over it. and af
ter the smoke cleared away only two men
were seen standing, out of between twen
ty and thirty in it. Many bodies were dis
tinctly seen floating in the water about the
boat.
Tho'JVtoune' SDecial d'snatch savs it
is probable that all the roads between 'the'
advance posts of the enemy and ftom there
i? -j -.1
towards outlines are covereu wn.u uiaat.eu
batteries. . 'In add! tdon to-those discerned
'byTfLieot-: Tompkins,! lit .has been ascer-

in the woods near Springfield, the first sta
tion from; Alexandria, "on the Orange fc
Alexandria road, Dine miles from Alexan
dria and eighteen from Manasses Junction,
and protected by a force of several hundred
men. It is believe they have been lately
erected.
NEW YORK, June 24.
The World's W,ashinglon dispatch slates
that the. latest advices continue lo repre
sent lt.tho intention of ISeaureguard to ad
vance on the Federal lines.
Yesterday was the day fixed for a move
ment on Washington. The Government is
satisfied of this, and that, there is an exten
sive spy system is in operation for the bene
fit of tbe Rebel uovetnment. .Letters nave
been sent daily from Washington, South,
by persons who are here to watch opera
tions of the Government. Prof. Lowe
takes his balloon down to Falls Church to
day. He makes an ascent to-morrow morn
ing and takes a view of tho rebel camps at
Fairfax.
It is believed that tho Navy Depart
ment will make an "average of all the bids
for gun goats and award them to the con
tractors who will build them within sixty
days.
The Tribune's dispatch says that Balti
more though quiet on the surlace, is pro
foundly agitated underneath, and is only
held iu check by fear. At any indication
of nn outbreak, Gen. Banks will without
doubt shell the city from Ft. McHenry,
He is the man to obey his orders to the
very letter.
The reinforcements for which Col. Stone
has sent are only for ordinance, and with
out which ho hesitates lo cross tbe river
and attack the enemy's batteries that daily
menace him. The origiual design of his
expeditiou was to cut on tbe retreat from
Harpers horry.
Com. Vanderbill has offered the Govern
ment the steamer Vanderbilt at a fair val
uation. If the)' will not take heron these
terms, be will make her a present to the
United States
The Atlantic Steamship Co., through
Vanderbilt baveoliered the Government the
following steamers; Ocean Quean, new and
complete in every respect, the Ariel, in fine
condition, the new iron steamship Cham
pion, built in 1859, ihe very light draft of
water, and the steamer Daniel Webster.
The price of either or all of said steamers
to be tue sumect to tue decision ot tue
Board of Commodores.
Mcssers. Johnson nndEthridge, of Tenn
havo been assured by tho war office that
the Union men in East Tennessee, and
wherever else in the State' they may need,
shall be sustained by tho strong arm of
tbe liovcrnment, and an order has been is
sued including Tennessee in the district un
der command of Brig. Gen. Anderson.
A naval expedition of much magnitude
will soon be fitted out to operate upon the
coast of Texas consisting of war vessels
and transports carrying munitions of war
and men. 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. Heralds dispatch from Wash
ington, June 23d, says: To-morrow there
will be an extra meeting of the Cabinet,
Avhou Gan. 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. Butler spent the morning at New
port News, whence no movement of impor
tance was reported.
Privato Parker, of ihe Vermont Regi
ment, prisoner to the rebels after the Great
Bethel affairs, has just been exchanged, and
gives the following nows: He says L. W.
Ulark, of the 3d JNew xork, deserted the
night before the affairs at Great Bethel.
He obtained a citizens dress from a secess
ionist, nnd gave the redels full information

Parker, on the evening of the fight, was
marched to Yorktown and from that point
to Richmond. There he was kept until
exchanged. He was carefully guarded, but
in every respect was well treated.
He roports the rebel force at Yorktown
as very large, and steamers brought down
additioual troops. Provisions were scarce,
and tho Confederate troops were badly fed
and clothed.
Thero were but few passengers between
Yorktown and Richmond.
Last week a storehouse at Richmond con
taining $100,000 worth of properly, was
destroyed by fire, nnd Saturday night the
war steamer Glencove was burnt to the wat
er's edge. Both were fired by incendiaries
whom tho rebels aro vainlv attempting to
discover. They now havo but two small
stermers on the river.

MILWAUKEE, June 24.
Th4fertingNriste .bank, which
has bera'gftwing'for some days, culmina
ted this morning in an attack on them by
a mob. Mitchell's Bank was first attacked
andainhVfurnilurFdeslrbyed. Mr; Mitch
ell, with several clerks, was iu the bank at
the time, one of whom was taken out in
sensible; The mob then attacked the
State Bank, Bank of Milwaukee, Junean
Bank, Martin's Brokers Office; damage
done to these very-large. The Monfgom
oiy Guards, -Capt. O'Rodke, was Called out
by the. Mayor, but after arriving on the
ground refused lo act. The Zouaves were
then called out and fired on tho mob with
buck-shot. 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. LoHtvlle Journal.
