The Engagement at Scary Hill—Colonel
Norton Wounded and taken Prisoner.
eThe report which reached here on Saturday to
(ha effect that Col. Norton liail been wounded mid
taken prisoner in n engagement with the rebels nt
Scary Hill, about forty miles up the Kanawha,
produced a profound sensation in this romniniiity.
The particulars, a near as we ran patlicr, nro as
follows: On Wednesday miming, tho 17ih inst.,
Oen. Cox had information of a supposed rebel bat
tery near the mouth of Scary ltiver, about three
miles above Oen. Cox's encampment, and detailed
Col. Lowe's 12tli regiment, and two companies of
the 21st regiment, under Col. Norton, the artillery
and cavalry to roconnoiter tho enemy's supposed
position nn the opposite, side of the river. About
uoon heavy firing was heard from the direction
which Col. Lowe's detachment had pone, nnd Colo
nels Woodruff, Do Villiers and Nell', two captains
nnd several lieutenants went up tho northern side
of the river to take A view of what was goinp on
from a comnnudinp position, nnd failing to return,
or their whereabout known up to twelve o'clock,
Thursday, it is believed that they have been cap
tured by the rebels nnd made prisoners of w ar. The
firing was kept up briskly for fully nn hour, when
Colonel Lowe's ammun'ti m gave cut, and he dis
patched a messenger to the camp for re-inforeeiueiits
and for more powder, ball and cartridges : but be
fore the assistance could reach him he was com
pelled to make a hasty retreat, leaving six to eight
killed on thj field, and carrying forty-seven wound
ed ott". Our men, after tiring forty rounds, crossed
the creek nnd silenced the masked battery, but
their ammunition giving out they were compelled to
retire. One gun of tho masked battery was after
wards remounted nnd opened lire on our men. The
Union troops acquitted themselves nobly, and but
far the unfortunate exhaustion of their ammunition,
their Tic tor v would unquestionably have been com
plete. Five privates were retreating with Col. Norton
who was badly wounded, when the rebels closed
vpon thetu so nearly, that at Col. Norton's request
thej dropped hiin on the field, and caught up with
their companies. Our troops succeeded in captur
ing fivo rebel prisoners, who st.ited that the rebel
forces were under the-comuiand of 0. J. Wise, and
numbered 1300 men ; but that during tho engage
men a regiment of Georgians arrived on a steamer
from Charleston. The enemy had five pieces of
cannon, while our troops bad two 12 pound rilled
guns. As our troop w ere retreating they met 8
companies of the 21 -it and the ammunition sent for
but they were, too late. The enemy was intrenched,
and is represented to bo well fortified. Col. Nor
ton's regiment was composed of companies from
the North-western part of the State one from Hu
ron county, two from Wood, two from Putnam, two
from Hancock, nnd one each from Seneca, Ottawa
. and Defiance counties. Two companies only of the
regiment were in tin engagement, CapL Al
len's and Cnpt. Strong's.
Gen. Cox's Ungade consisted of the 2d Kentui ky
regiment, Col. Woodruff ; liv e companies of the 1st
Kentucky regiment, under Lieut. Col. Euyart ; the
12th Ohio regiment, Col. Lowe ; lltli Ohio regiment
Col. 1)j Villiers, and the 21st Ohio regiment, Col.
Norton; Capt. Carter's company of artillery, and a
cavalry company from Ironton, which were encamp
ed at Foca Tahlequrt, on tho Kanawha river, about
fifteen miles below Charleston, and Col. Guthrie,
with fivo companies of the Lit Kentucky regiment,
was at Itipley, Va.
Gen. Cox had not attacked tho enemy up to noon
on Thursday, 21 hours after the engagement. The
wounded soldiers were placed on board tho steamer
Economy, which has been converted into a hospital,
and every possible attention given to the wounded.
Tho Miry Cool, Jiipt. Hugh Campbell, left the
camp Thursday p. M., bringing Lieutenant Pomeroy
who was wounded in the engagement, but he died
while tho steamer was below Gallipulis. His re
mains were foraurded to his friends.
A number of secessionists who had been taken
prisoners by Col. Norton, and were detained at Point
Floasant, circulated n petition addressed to Colonel
Tompkins, in charge of the enemy's forces nt
Scary Hill, begging hiin to release Col. Norton,
who had shown them great kindness in their con
finement, nnd also asking that the Ohio troops might
bo allowed to remove their dead under a flag of
truce. No reply had been received when the boat
loft. It was ascertained, after the boat left the
landing, that Col. Woodruff had returned. Gen.
Cox was preparing to attack the rebels with his en
tire force on Thursday afternoon, and tho probabil
ity is that tho battle was fought on Friday.
P. S. Since the above was in type we learu that
Col. Norton has been released, and is now at Galli
polis. He was wounded in the thigh, but rot se
verely. Ho was well treated by the rebels, as were
also others that fell into their hands. Tho dead
were buried. No intimation of another battle.
Another Great Bethel Affair.
Gon. Cox, on his march up the Kanawha, last
week, encamped nc night in the vicinity of the
Red House, about 38 miles up that stream; and
during the night occurred another Great Hethcl af
fair, only on a smaller scale. It seems that a por
tion of the 1st Kentucky Regiment, with the Gener
al commanding, was called out shortly after dark
(for what purpose is not stated) and while in line a
gun was accidentally discharged, which led to tho
belief that they were surprised by the enemy. The
wings of tee line, which seem to have been crescent-
shaped, immediately fired upon each other. Two
men were instantly killed, both having been shot '
through the head, and several' others wounded. j
Among the wouuded were two Wood couutv boys
William Stewart of New Wcstfield, and Morrison
Lewis of Milton Center.

The Freeport Tragedy.
One of the most terrible and unfortunate affrays
that ever occurred in Wood county, Unik place in
Freeport on Sunday morning July 7th. This sad
affair resulted in the death of Milton t. Ensminger,
an old cititen, having been engaged iu the mercan
tile business for many years, and was well known
throughout the entire country. He was killed by
Clinton Walters, for the alledgcd seduction of his
wife. The facts which led to this unhappy result,
are as follows: For some time previous to (hi af
fray, suspicions existed in the community that there
was a criminal intimacy between Enstniiigcr and
Mrs. Walters. Walters had enlisted under Cnpt.
Crowell of Fremont, and gone to Camp Chase, be
fore leaving home he was aware of these suspicieiis
and it seems that Dr. T. S. Carman pledged his word
to Walters, that in his absence he would besfow
such care nnd attention open his w ile and family
as they might require. Mrs. Walters was being
supported by the Volunteer Fund from the State.
Such was the state of affairs when Walters left
home. A short time after his departure their al
leged improper conduct became a general talk in
FreeMirt, and it seems that Ensniinger's notion
were clos-ly watched. Dr. ("arm in had tor S' in.'
time been watching him, nn I on the Sunday ni::lit
previous to this affray, saw Fnsmiugor cnti ring the
iiouse of Mrs. Walters nt about I" o'el ek. Car
man stated that he watched them: that he saw
nothing criminal, yet from what he s r.v and heard
believed that such criminal interenure had t.ik'-n
place. As Ensminger came out. Cimnn t"ok In 1.1
of his niiu, nnd with an oath said. "Now I have
caught you." Ensmingerreplie I, " I ncku.iwlcd.rc
the corn; for God's sake don't exp.'se me." F.n
sniingiT's and Walters' houses ore lo th on the same
lot, or u ar together, nnd, it appear he went over
to get n pitcher of w :it-r, and claims that Mrs. Wal
ters called him in. He went in nn 1 lYinaiii-d some
twenty or twenty-five ininut 's : but vehemently d"
nied liny pnilt. ' On the next night a priv.it' meet
ing was held in Dr. farm m's store, and he there
related what transpired on the previous niht, an 1
it was determined t hold a public me. tii g next daw
Accordingly word was s ill out to the peoid mil

Tne avowed object of the m -cling w as to see ii'

e-.peiise, w hile she was ne'ing in such an ini; r.ip -r
manner. The meeting orj.eiii.tcd w ith Dr. W. D.
llutehiiis in the. Chair, and it appears from tiieir
proceedings they lost tight of the original object of
their assembling, nnd preferred a charge of" udul
t tv ag.iin.-i f,'i.mi'n;iT. Dr. Carman was sw orn
and m ide his statem -nt which Eiisnimger acknow
ledged was substantially tines but deui -.1 any
criminal intimacy ; sai 1 it was impii per and w as
sorry, mi l that he should not ngain do s;. Other
testimony w as given in, and the meeting not satis
fied willi Eiisiuinger's guilt, sent a committee to
visit the women neighbors of Mrs. Wall is t elicit
new- testimony. This committee having finished
their tabors, duly reported to the meeting. After
hearing all, a number of speeches were made. The
c harge of adultery was stricken out, and tln-v found
Knsniinger guilty of "gross impropriety.'' The
meeting was composed of many of the b-t citizens:
but at tins time n gr at many left, the me ting lie
coming very noisy and turbulent. While Knsniing
er was speaking Cm-man approached him an I said,
"Speak the truth, for by the Eternal it is life or
death," and at the same time pulling his hand to
his (Carman's) breast. Alter tiiis a resolution re
quiring Knsniinger to leave town in thirty days,
was missed : and that they would protect him for
that length of time. Also a resolution w as passed
to forward a enpv of the proceedings to Wallers at
Camp Chase. It appears that Dr. llutehiiis having
business at Camp Chase, carried the proceedings to
Wa't' rs. llutehiiis and Wallers came to Carey
from Columbus on the ears. Walters started for
Freeport on foot. llutehiiis overlook hiin about ll
miles out of Carey, and Walters rode with him un
til within a very short distance of Freeport, arriv
ing there late oil .Saturday night.
THE KILLING OF ENSMINGER.
next morning between six and seven o'clock,
Knsiuinger was sitting at his store upon the porch,
in company with Mr. Uenline. The store is situat
ed on the corner of the street, the porch fronting
the south. Walters came up stealthily from the
north, and Ensminger was entirely unaware of his
presence, until right upon hiin. Kiismijigir spoke
to him, ii ii J Walters with an imprecation, gulled out
n revolver, (a six-shooter) and snapped it. at him.
Uenline said, " Knsniinger, runl" Knsniinger ran
down street westwni-dly, turning into an alley, and
Wallers utter him, discharging- the conlents'of the
revolver, i n - shot taking effect in the right shoulder.
It appears that Knsniinger went to the end of the
alley, and turned and ran past Wait -rs, uud just as
he was passing a shot took rtl'eet between tin' fifth
mid sixth rib, w hich proved fatal. Ensminger came
back to Ids store, Went on his porch and, at the
store door, was met by his son Cor-.vin Ensminger,
who handed him a pistol. At this juncture Dr.
Carman came across from his store, 'being on the
opposite side of the street and North-east from Ens
Hunger's, and w ith nn oath chin-god Carman with
being nt the "bottom of all this." When Knsniing
er made the rem irk, Carman went back to his own
store. Walters also ran across the slro t, aud it
appears was some 20 or 25 feet west of Carman
when Knsniinger fired, ns lie stated, at Wultcrs: but
some testily that he tired at Cariiiitn. others at Wal
ters. Alter firing, Ensminger reinim-d the pistol
to his sun. As his wife and hired girl were taking
him home he was bleeding, and said he w as killed.
When Ensminger tired, Carman went to his store
mid came out with a double barrel shot gun, and
cam; across the street toward Ensminger, pointing
it nt him. His wile and Mr. Lansdale interposed
ami prevented Carman from shooting. One witness
on cxaiuintion said Carman ashed Ensniin'or if he
shot nt him; Eii.-iiiingoi- replied "No." Then says
Carman "1 would not hurt you." When Knsniing
er tired, Wallers went into Palmer's Tavern, and af
ter Carman tried to shoot Knsn linger he returned to
his store, when Walters came in and, as one wit
ness stated, asked Carman "If he hud any more
ammunition for pistol." Carman said No." Wal
ters then hind his hand upon a rille and asked if it
was loaded. Carman said nothing, but went to
his desk and got a ball aud handed it to Walters,
remarking that "it is good for 200 yards when well
handled." Ensminger died from tho rll'ect of the
wound on the Tuesday following, ilj suffered
much nnd begged the physicians to give hiin
strychnine, to end his sufferings. He leaves a
voting wife and a large family of children to mourn
his loss. He protested his innocence of criminal
intiiu icy with Mrs. Walters until the last. Wal
ters returned to Camp Chase, and is unable to leave
on account of sickness, but is under arrest.
After this most painful occurrence, Dr. T. S. Car
man and wife, Dr. W. D. Hiiiehins and Dr. E. It.
Sage were arrested on tho charge of aiding nnd a
betting in the minder of Eusiuinger. On lti;h inst.,
after a trial of 4 days, before Samuel Ifacon, .). P.,

Webst -r tp., Cai man was bound over in the sum

rest of Drs. Carman, llutchins nu t Sage, for a i
crime so henious as this, has caused the most in- ;
tense excitement. They all have been residents of j
Wood county for many years. They are now nr- I
raigne I for the crime of coiispiring to take the life j
of one of their fellow citizens, ond they all express
a perfect willingness to have a full investigation, j
believing that they can vindicate themselves entire- :
ly. Dr. Carman claims that in the entire mailer he j
has acted in good faith to Walters, and according to '
his pledge guarded the honor of Ids name and tile :
chastity of his wife; that all he did was fr ni a con- j
viction of duty and justice to Wallers, nn I nothing
more. Upon the other hand it is claimed that Car- '
man was iictuacted by feelings of bitterness to Ens- '
minger, between whom some, uillieully hail toruier
ly occurred, nnd that it was not froi.i any sacred re
gard for the honor of Walter's wife, nor friendship
for Walters himself; but it is not for us to seek to
penetrate tho hearts of m n and know w hat human
intentions nre, nor could we if we wished. The
guilt or innocence of these parties is 1 1 be made a
matter of legal investigation; and it is to be hoped
that no injustice nr wrong may be dune, either by
slanderous and false charges, nor from imprudence
of friends. A great crime ,as been committed; a

Thcr Is sn allusion in the speech of General
Cameron, that should be resd and pondered by T
cry young printer In the country. When he rose to
reply to a toast proposed in honor of the Secretary
of War, he told the company that while the senti
ment was being read, he could not realise that the
compliment was couched to him, because Just then
he was (rating at his venerable friend, Colonel Se
on, one of the proprietors of the Xtti-mal fouMff
or, who, only a few yeais since, paid him his wa
ges as a journeyman printer. We want our young
fellow craftsmen to think of this acknowledgment
nn I study the progress of this distinguished printer,
who yet clings to the memory of his " typo " days,
and who is still as familiar with (rood " sparing"
and regular "justification, " as the best compositor
w lw housts of his " thousands." Only a few years
ago Simon Cameron set type and measured his mat
ter in the old iiJiWiyrsn-r office. Only a (ew years
ngo, he was an obscure printer, w aiting for copy.
To-d.iT he is one of the most prominent members
of an administration that is destined to become
m re memorable than any other that has preceded
it or will come after It, in the history of the Gov
ernment. To-day he is at the head of a department
upon which rests the responsibility of rescuing this
nation from rebellion marshaling armies for tho
fi eld, instead of measuring matter for a newspaper.
There is a sublime lesson in such triumphs, which
others besides printer buys can learn. It tolls us
that there U a beckoning hand and a cheerful voico
at tho opening to every useful pnth In this ttill land
of the five and the home of tho brave. It tells us
that energy, stern devotion to principle, chai actor
nn I Integrity, will bear a man to higher honor than
perfumed praise or purchased favor cau win iu a
Mrs. Winslow Again.
Mrs. Winslow, an old and experienced nurse, has
devoted herself for more than thirty years exclusive
ly to tho care of children. She has a Soothing
Syrup for children teething, which we believo a
most invaluable preparation, uot only for children
(.'ethiiig, but in nil cases of Dysentary or Diarrhoea.
We speak of what we know, when wo say this
Soothing Syrup acts like a perfect charm in the
above cases. We have witnessed the most satis
factory and pleasing results from the use of it, upon
suffering infants und children, in a grout variety of
cases. It gives universal satisfaction; is iierfectly
sale for foelilest infant, and pleasant to the taste.
We sincerely believe tho mother w ho has a child
suffering from any of tho above complaints, and
neglects to provide this medicine for its relief and
cure, is depriving the little sufferer of tub hkmkdY
oi- all tun wom.n best calculated to give it rest,
and restore it to health. 10ml
