Oam.ipoi.ir, July 7th, i.01.)
Friend Bailet: Inasmuch as there arc many
of our friends who ire anxious to heir from us, and,
as we CAnnot write to all of tluin, I am requested
10 write A statement 01 our e.miiticn mm conduc t
for the last week. Last Sunday, about fire o'clock
In tho morning, a purty of thirty-throe rebels under
command of Capt. Jenkins, seized two Union men
near Point Pleasant, nt the mouth of the Kanawha,
within six miles of our camp, and carried them to
Charleston, some sixty miles distant. As soon ns
tho news reached our camp, Col. Xorton, in com
mand of a detachment of our regiment went up tho
rivor in pursuit, but could not overtake them. The
pursuit being given up, the detachment w as subdi
vided, and upon our return to umip . arnngton.thc ,
various squads brought in thirty secessionists.
of these prisoners were very prominent men,
their capture created much excitement. On the
third day of July the prisoners wero sent to Colum-
mis, and the wnola regiment was ordered 10 itip
ley Landing, above Mason City on the Ohio river.
Arriving nt Mason City, wo were joined by two
companies of the Ohio 17th and one company of
Home Guards. In nil we were about thirteen hun
dred strong. With this force, we took up our line
of march from Ripley Landing about three o'cloik
in the morning for the tow n of Ripley, about thir
teen miles distant, expecting to nttack a rebel camp
in that town. This w as our first real inarch, and it 1
being 011 the 4th of July, with a full expectation of
a fight in a few hours, ninny enquiries were made
as to "what our friends were thinking about," and j
" what if they knew we w ere going to fight," and
" who thought of this last 4th of July," and many
other subjects w ere discussed until the effects of
a smart walk and nn occasional " double quick "
caused the boys to throw aw ay many of their over
coats and procuro water whenever an opportunity
wasofi'ercd. We went into Ripley in "double quick
time," and tho bnvs rabid a howl and .such a
bowl I Tho very hills shook as it echoed unions;
them. Soldiers can not bear disappointment. The
boys appeared very much ehopfallen very much
bo, when the word went along the line that the rebels
had fledl We encamped for a few hours on their
camp ground, and then took up our march ng:'.in
for the Ohio river. Very few persons were found
in Ripley, and when I saw it, I thought it was
!the "desertod village" which Goldsmith tells us of.
Along the road many of tho farm houses were de
serted, aud their property seemed utterly destroyed.
Fields of wheat were being trodden down by boys
and cattle, and ju fact the country is desolated. The
rebels have nppropt iated everything which they
can uso without any distinction of parties. The
day was exceedingly hot, and on our return to the
landing many of the boys became much exhausted,
and being without wagons ourselves, ns well as im-
possible to procure means of conveyance along the
road, wo had to walk. We arrived in Camp Car
rington on tho fifth, and I am sure all were anxious
to get some rciit, after having gained a (bloodless)
On tho evening of the 6th, 50 men from company
, 50 from company C, and 50 from company O,
and 25 from Capt. Uoorgo's company of Dragoons,
under command of Col. Norton went to capture 11
email camp said to bo on tho farm of tho notorious
Capt. Jenkins, about sixteen miles from Gallipolis.
The good people woke up in tlio morning and found
themselves well guarded, but there was 110 one
found to fight. We captured eight poor fellows who
were harvesting for Jenkins, but as it was believed
that littio Joe. Lindsay could whip the whole of
them, they were let go about their business. Jen
kins has turned his farm into a camp for the rebels,
nnd as there w as a lot of fine hor.ies and cattle
found there, they wero declared contraband of war
and arc now at the disposition of the Governor.
The contraband goods I should judge to be worth
$1800, which is no small item with the rebel. On
the morning of tho 7th wo arrived again at Camp
Carrington, where we now ure in good health and
spirits. Yours truly,

7th Regiment, O. V. M., Lewis Co., Ya.)
Weston, July 4th, 1801. j
EniTon Journal: I know of no other way of
giving vent to the patriotic feelings which inspire
the heart of every true American citizen on the
" Glorious Old Fourth," even though ho bo on se
cession soil ; so I writo to tho ever remembered
Journal. I left the almost unbroken plain of
north-western Ohio on the 2ith of June, und rejoin
ed tho 7th at camp, from which place wo made our
exit on Wednesday, 20th. at 0 p. m. Went by way
of Xenial Columbus, Newark and Zanesville to
Bellair. Crossed tho river to Benwood, Ya., and
all enjoyed sweet sleep with knapsacks for pillows
and "mother dust" for beds. Although it was night
the passage from camp to Newark was one of con
tinual cheering and "Give 'cm fits" from the crowds
at tho different stations. The train consisted of 56
cars heavily loaded, and w as drawn by four heavy
engines from Columbus through. Men, horses and
baggago wagons wero nil nVniird. We are all ful
ly uniformed and equipped wjth one exception, and
that is, wo have no canteens ; but many had rather
go without than use tho india-rubber things which
others have. At Benwood the ammunition was
distributed. From this place to Grafton, 10:1 miles,
are the most wild, romantic, rugtred, and in many
instances beautiful hills I have ever seen anywhere.
A great many of them nre coal hills, but never
have been used but little on neeouut of the country
being so thinly populated. This tuictof country
seems to have been designed for an Indian war
ground, or soma other worthless thing because it is
bo rocky and barren that man never could sustuin
pfo here, except by fighting seeeshers " (as they
call them) and clothed and fed by IheUnited States.
Urafton is Geu. McClellan's Head Quarters in West

Harrison and Barbour counties get their provisions
from Clarksburg, it being tho nearest railroad sta
tion. In order to make the transportation of troops
Bate there have been guards placed ut eiery bridge
on the Ohio Central R, R nnd whole companies of
tho 16th and 20th regiments guard the bridges on
tho Baltimore and Ohio, so that nil is secure. The
7th is from tho " dreaded Western Reserve," con
sequently it will be fight or die for it. E. li. Tyler

ness iu Virginia for the last 20 years, nnd is as w ell
acquainted with every winding stream, hill and
vale as any man in tho Union. From Grafton wo
took tho railroad towards Parkersbuig 22 miles to
Clarksburg. Pitched tents Friday night, and re
mained until Saturday, 3 o'clock, p. m. At this
hour wo wero called out and ordered to be ready in
one hour to march. Tho hour passed, and we start
ed on what proved to be one of the most fatigueing
marches I ever experienced. It was up and down
bill all tho way from camp to Weston, 21 iiiiles.aud
all afoot, with not less than from 40 to 00 pounds
to the man. This was tho enso when wo started,
but many dispensed with their burdens entirely be
fore we got through by casting them to tUp winds.
We hadn't a mouthful of provisions w ith us. The
road was macadamized Ml tho way, und w o were
not allowedto break the rauks. Jlouy had thin
aoled boots aud shoes on, which caused them to
tread lightly over the stones tho last ten miles
They gay this waa a forced march. I am mire the

Fatal Affray at Freeport.
The following particulars, relative to the terrible
afi'iay at Freeport, is furnished by one of the attor
neys for the defense; w hich includes Dr. Carman
and others, arrested ns aiders and abettors in the
murder of Ensniinger. This, of course presents
the side of tho story favorable f the defendants;
but wo think the evidence will establish some fads
the writer has omitted to mention:
En. Joi'rsal: The village of Freeport, in your
county has been tie- seen? of great excitement for
the 1 1st three or four days, 011 account of the shoot
ing of one of its citizens by another. The facts, as
shown before tho Coroner's dory, are these: For
some time past, n young nun name 1 Clinton Wal
ters, has lived in Freeport, his home being adjoin
ing the house of Dr. Carman on the right, and the
house of Milton Knsmingor on the left, upon land
owned by Dr. Carman. Some tw o months or more
since, Walters joined a volunteer company and left
for camp. Before ho went, however, he saw Dr.
Carman, unl exacted from hiiu A promise upon his
honor, that while he (Walters) was gone from hum.
in tho service of his cuuntry, Dr. Carman would
protect, defend and see that his family was provid
ed for. This promise the doctor gave. Inuncdi-
utely after the departure of the volunteers for camp
an improper intimacy was noticed between Mrs.
Walters and Ensmir.ger. This continued sometime,
and was n source of remark among the neighbors,
and at last got to the ears of Walters, who hardly
believed it, but again asked Dr. Carman to protect
bis w ir and family nnd to let him (Walters) know
if anything wrong occurred. About this time the
intimacy became very bold faced and tipparcnt.
Night after night, signals were seen to proceed from
Mrs. Walters to Mr. Knsminger, to apprise him that
she was alone and all was right. She would ex
tinguish the lights in her house after the lights iu
,tho neighbors' houses were out". She would go in
the back room of her house and strike a light. This
was repeated several nights, until at last Dr. Car
man thought it his duty, under his promise to Wal
ters, to ascertain for a certainty whether the suspi
cions of the community wero well grounded. H.s
therefore on seeing the signal given one night, went
over the fence between his own and Walters' house,
aud .concealed himself near tho back door of tho
bowse, near the window. In a few moments Ens
joinger canio round the house and w as let in at the
back door by Mrs. Walters. Dr. Carman saw them
walk across the floor towards tho bed ; heard n
noise like the squeaking of a bedstead, und in u
short time heard him got off tho bed, nnd saw Ens
minger come towards the door. As Ensmiuger came
out Dr. Carman grabbed him by the arm. Ensmiug
er started back saying, "Who are you?" Dr. C.
spoke and said, " It's 1110, Ensmiuger, I w ant you to
know who I am." Ensmingcr then said, "O, it's you,
is it, Doc ? Vou are posted. Give mo your hand.
You w ill say nothing about it. Don't, for God's
sake, expose me." Dr. C. said, " Tliero, enough said
about it ; " and at this they went to their homes.
Next nforning Dr. C. told one of the trustees what
he had seen the night previous, and, as the trustees
were assisting the family dining Walters' absence,
the trustees called a meeting of the citizens to see
what should bo done. Ensniinger tindingthat steps
were being taken against him and for tho investiga
tion of tho matter, sent a girl that has lived with
him for soma time, named Phebe Stewart, to Mrs.
Wallers, for the purpose of having Mrs. Walters
write to her husband in Camp Chase, that Dr. Car
man was the only man w ho had insulted her, nnd
at Pheba's dictation, she wrote such a letter and it
went to Camp Chase. This was done to screen
Ensmiuger and throw tho guilt on to Dr. Carman.'
The plot of Ensmiuger 's having leaked out, Dr. Car
man, in tho presence of quite a number of the citi
zens of Freeport, sent for Mrs. Walters, had her
duly sworn, and on her oath she stated that Dr.
Carman never had insulted her, or made any im
proper advances whatever, nnd that she had writ
ton a lie to Camp Chase at the instigation of Ens
niinger through Phebe Stewart. The meeting called
by the trustees met. Dr. Carman and others were
sworn, and testified to what they hud seen aud heard
between Ensniinger and Mrs. Walters. Ensniinger
was present, und admitted impropriety, but denied
guilt. A vote was taken approving Dr. Carman's
course, and requesting Ensmiuger to leave town
within lilt days, und that 11 copy of the prsceedings
should ba forwarded to Camp Chase tu Walters.
Dr, llutehins, a practicing physician of Freeport,
had a nephew who formerly lived in his family
and to whom he was greatly attached. This neph
ew was at the time at Camp Chase, and the doctor
had been down once or twice to see him, and w as
about going again, us he had heard that his nephew
was unwell and out of money. The trustees think
ing this a good opportunity of sending a copy of
tho proceedings of the meeting to Wulters, gave
them to Dr. II., who took them down and delivered
them tu Walters, Tlio next day Walters, utmost
frantic, started for homo on a furlough, and came
011 tho sanu train with Dr. llutehins. At Carey
Dr. II. had a horse and buggy w aiting for him, and
ho and his little daughter cumo across the country
towards Freeport with this eouveyaiice, and they
overtook Walters, who seemed very weary und
sick, and the doctor's child wanted tier father to
ask him to ride, ho seemed to be so much worn out.
Dr. llutehins took him in and rode with him until
w ithin a short distance of Freeport, when Walters
wished to get out. No conversation about Wulters'
troubles took place between them, Walters seeming
disinclined to talk much. Dr. llutehins proceeded
to his home, put up his horse and went to bed. Dr.
Carman, in tho meantime, was at his own house,
unwell, nnd neither Dr. Caiman uor Dr. Nutchiiis
saw Walters until the next day. At about 7 o'clock
a. in. of the next day, Dr. C. went from his resi
dence across to his store to get soiiu medicines lor
himself. On coining out ho heard tho report of
pistol, and on getting to tho door, saw Ensniinger
running an 1 Walters after him. Dr. C. then went
out into tho roa 1, an 1 soon Ensniinger coming back
and running up to Dr. Carman, said, Vou d
, if it had not been for you, this would not
have taken place, I'll blow your d d brains out
or it;" and immediately pointed a pistol and shot at
Dr. Carman, tho bull just missing him as ho wheel
ed around. Dr. C. then run into his store nnd load
ed a gun ho had, and came out and went up near
Mr, E., who wag still nut there making ull sorts
of threats. Dr. C. spoko to him and said, "You'll
blow my brains out, will you?" and then walked up
and took him by the arm, aud told tho by-standers
to take him nnd take care of him, that he (Carman
did not wish to injure him, but wanted him guard
ed so that ho could uot shoot at him ugain. All
this time Ensuiinger was up on bis foet and hud his
pistol; and Dr. C. supposed him not hort not
knowing that Walters had wounded him fatally
even Aeriously, Shortly after this, Ensuunger
was taken to his bouse, when ip s day or two after

A Bad Egg Arrested.

rant, for putting a railroad tie on the track, and one
in tho cattle guard of the C. & T. R. It. about 80
rods cast of Washington station, lie w as seen to
do the act by tho engineer of the construction train
w ho immediately reversed the engine, jumped from
tho train, and in a filly rods chase caught the chap.
The tie stuck up three feet, slanting from the train,
and the cars ran upon it, breaking the tie, and doing
no injury to the train. The wood train had just

A Good Suggestion.
It would be well for those w ho corrcspon I w ith
volunteers now in camp or on duty away from home
to enclose postage stamps. It is difficult in many
instances for soldiers to procure them, and this may
be the occasion of letters remaining unanswered. To
make sure of r.Teh ing a letter from your frit uds

stamp when you write.
