A Second Miss Brownlow.
There is a young lady named Miss
Richmond, residing near Raleigh,
whose heroic nets fully vie with those
of the famous Miss Brownlow. of Ten
nessee. Her father is a daring Un
ionist, nnd recently csoaped from an es
cort of rehels who lnd him in charen.
Miss Richmond handles a musket, rifle
or shot enn with a precision and Rk ill
fully equal to any sharpshooter, and
is at any timo ready to join the clan of
which her father is the loader, whenev
er it is off on nn expeditton against
the rehels. She will start off at any
hour, alono, as a hearer of information,
und, on horsehack, thread the wild pas
res of the mountains, returning, some
times, long after dark, from her mission.
From one of these expeditions she did
notrcturn until. after midnight. Even
among tho mountaineers, she is regard
ed as a prodigy of courage and endur

Letter from the 60th Ohio-Notes
Sunday, May 25. To-day onr brig
ado was marched out about 10 miles
and back to camp by night. Tho ob
ject of this move was to deceive the
enemy in regard to our movements.
Oen. Fremont and the main army
moved to day toward. Petersburg. It
is reported that Banks has been com
pletely cut up by the rebel Jackson,
and Fremont has been ordorcd to pur
sue Jackson and if possible capture
him. We are not the least mad because
we have to leave this forsaken country.
Nothing but mountains and mountain
streams aro to be seen on every side,
and the question is constantly suggest
ing itself, how do theso people live?
May 2(3. Wo left our camp this
morning at an early hour, and for want
of sufficient transportation hid to leave
somo of our tents and a lot of knap
sacks, fcc. Co. II, Capt. Williard's, was
detailed to stay at Franklm to guard
tho sick and commissary stores left be
hind for want of transportation.
May 27. Crossed the Potomac on a
pontoon bridge. Leaving Co. F, Capt,
Cowgill, to guard it, and Co. K, Capt.
Oore, and two companies of tho 8th
Virginia, to guard the baggago train,
we pressod on to overtake the main ar
my, who have one day tho start of us.
Wo reached Petersburg at C P. M.,
drew rations for 5 days, exchanged our
muskets for Enfield rifles, and started
at 12 o'clock for Moorcfield, leaving be
hind such as were not able to march.

-a. iieacticd iWoorcheld this;
morning at 8 o'clock, wading tho Poto-
ntae, which was hero very swift and
u?p. hcing the advance, we passed
several (Jerman regiments, and stopped
two miles from town fur break fust
which was prepared and eaten in a
drcneliinjr rain. Here, for the first
time mh! w entered Virginia, wo saw
some really beautiful rountry and a
beautiful town. This afternoon we
marched some 7 org miles and encamp.
I'd on the summit of a tall mountain.
Reports i regard to Jackson's position
and movements, .od Hanks and Shields,
are as pleaty as blackberries, but as
no one knows certainly, except Gen.
Frcwont himself, k is useless to repeat
thctn or write them down.

day, and this evening at 6 o'clock start
ed again in (he extreme advance. The
object of oiir march this evening is to
reach the bridge ncross Lost River, 16
miles distant, before Jackson hears of
our coming and destroys it.
May 30. Wo reached our destina
tion last night after a forocd march
over somo bad roads and numerous
small streams, nearly two hundred men
fulling behind from fatigue and sore
feet and legs, numbers of them not get
ting into camp until this morning. At
12 M. we started forward, and after a
march of 4 miles reached Wardensville
in the midst of a heavy rain. Stopping
hero for a few hours, wo marehed for
ward two miles and encamped. Still
The "Jessie Scouts" came into this
village day before yesterday, passed for
Secesh cavalry, learned all they wanted
to of Jackson and his movements from
party of Ashby's cavalry, were treat
ed very hospitably by the citizens and
rode off unsuspected. To-day they
created quito an excitement by visiting
the citizens in compaoy with the "Yan
tees." On our march last night we
came across a doicn of them at a farm
house, and arrested them for a party
of Ashby's meu. Their guns were ta
ken from them, and they were consoled
with tho promise of being shot, when
they were identified by some of our
party and released by Col. T. They
are a sharp, reckless set of fallows,
dressed in all manner of ways, princi
pally with hunting shirts and Secosh
uniforms. They take a good many
bushwbackera by "playing off" on
them; and, getting to look at their guns,
say, "now, you dd rascals, travei."
They look surprisod at first, but soon
find out that there is no fun about it,
and march quietly off to headquarters.
May 31. Commenced our march
this morning at 3 o'clook, wet and
tired, it having rained on us all night
and drizzling all day. Marched nino
miles and encamped on the road toward
Sunday, Juno 1 The day for bat
tles. At 10 o'clock to-day we came up
on a small foroe of the enemy, compos
ed of 4 to 6 rogiments of infantry, and
pieoes of cannon, posted on the road
miles out . from Strasburg, Four
companies of our Brigade (Companies
A and U of tho GOth and A and B of
tho 8th Va.,) were deployed as skir
mishers, marching down a lano at right
angles to their Gre. Shot and shell
flew around us and over us and through
us that is through the lines about
as fast and as thick as one could well
imagine, and it is a great wonder in
deed that somo of us were not killed
As it was, one of Co. A was wounded
slightly in the hand, and three or four
of the othor companies flesh wound in
the legs and arms; ono in the temple.
We fired fro-n 10 to 15 rounds at tho
gunners and a line of skirmishers some
250 yards distant, at a fence, when we
wcro ordered to retreat; there being no
force whatever in reach to support us.
W o fell back in good order, returning
by tho samo lane we advanced in, tho
artillery and battalion of infantry
firing upon us as we left. In about
half an hour two pieces of cannon were
brought up and opened fire upon the
rebel battery, Co. D deployed as skir
mishers. They soon after retired, fall
ing back to Strasburg, to which place
after dark last night, through the most
miserable and muddy roads that you
ever saw, our Rrigado marched, but
for what purpose I have not. yet been
ablo to discover. Although tired and
weary with six days and two nights'
marching, and tho skirmishing' and
fighting of Sunday, we had to march
four miles to this town thraugh mud
knee deep, and so Rlippcry that men
were falling down continually. We had
some 200 cavalry and two pieces of ar
tillery with us. At the entrance to
the town wo killed one of their piekts.
Forming line of battle with the 8th Va.
and lour companies of tho GOth the
other 5 companies, A, ff, I, C, and F ad-
vanccd with tho cavalry and artillery
on the town. Meeting with no resist
ance, we passed on through. The cav-
airy then taking tho lead we followed
for n mile and a half, when their pink
cts fired into ns. The firo was returned
by the advance of the cavalry, and then
tho whole column, except the foremost
company, wheeled about and cama gal
loping down tho road towards us. The
Shenandoah lay on our left and a steep
mountain on our right, leaving barelv
room for a pike; so wo had to get up the

when some ono suggested that they

was reserved. After they passed by we
remained in our position about ono and
half hours, wh sn wo commenced to ro
turn. June 2. Cavalry and artillery hav
ing both deserted us, we were left in a
nice pickle. Ewel."s Brigade, from
Louisiana, were encamped on tho hill
above us, and a fort in town was full of
the rebels. 400 of tlic ir cavalry fol
lowed us back to camp, and all that
kept them from attacking us was their
fears that the whole army was in their
midst ready to pounce down upon them
as soon as wo found whoro they were.
This much we have learned from es
caped prisoners, and their own men ta
ken prisoners. This very foolish move,
as I can but term it. was attended hv
the loss of 5 or 6 of our men taken
prisoners, among whom was ono of the
finest little fellows and best soldiers
of our company Harry Mingus. We
are in hopes that he will succeed in ma
king his escape, as the prisoners Jack-
son has aro escaping every day.

Letter from Indiana.
MIAMI, IND., June 13, 1862.
Dear News. On last Wednesday
morning "your correspondent," (why
shouldn't I use the term?) with the as
sistance of two or three stout men
jumped aboard the western-bound train,
at Level, Ohio, and was soon swiftly
gilding along toward the "Queen City."
It was a lovely morning the air
balmy and sweet, and taking it all to
gether, was one of the pleasantest car-
rides I ever had.
At Cincinnati, I spent a very pleas
ant hour in the office of Mr. J. R. Haw
ley, Wholesalo Stationer, 1G4 Vine-st.
Mr. Hawley and his partner are both
true gentlemen, and hero allow me to
say that any young man who is out of
employment, and who wishes to enao
an honorable and well-paying busi
ncss, can not dq better than to write to
the above address for a circular
11.40 A. M., found me seated in a
car of the Indianapolis train, and while
waiting impationtly for it to start, my
attention was called to the further end
the car, and who can imagine, to say
nothing of describing, my gratification
on beholding what do you think?
Why, sir, nothing moro nor less than a
lot or the Southern "fthivalry" on a
,onr to the North! Tho first place at
whioh they were expected to halt, for
any great longth of time, was "Camp
Morton," Indianapolis, and I should
not be surprised if the charms of tho
place aro so forcibly impressed upon
their minds that they will proloug their
visit to several months.
They were twenty-one in number,
and formod a detaohment of the 1st
Kentucky (Rebel) Regiment." They
were escorted by Capt. Littlejohn, of
the 18th Kentucky (Union) Regiment,
and ten of his men.
I was unable to learn full particulars
of their capture merely that they
were sauting, last Sunday morning,
near Cumberland Gap, Ky., and fell in
to tho hands of fifteen of Capt. L.'s
men, who captured thcra without a

looking men, but those capped tho cli

Corners of bis mouth; his shirt open at

dirt; his coat of drab-colored cotton.
Or buttsrnut linscv. also woll
with dirt and wear, and reaching nearly
to the knees; long, stringy locks of un
combed hair, upon the top of which
rests an old slouch hat; then add to all
this a look of degradation and shame,
or of sullen neo and defiance, and they
will have some idea of their heavy. So
much for "Secesh."
On the train I also met Capt. ,
of tho now disbanded lGth Indiana,
who informed me that both the 12th
and lGth Indiana Regiments (both en
listed for ono year) are rapidly reor
ganizing, and will soon be ready for the
I reached Indianapolis about 5 o'
clock P. M., sick and tired; but a night's
