From Our Volunteers. ISTTEIt FROM CO. F, 133U PEXSA. VOLS. POP ULARITY OF GEN. HOOKER NEGRO SOLDIERS PICKETING A MISTAKE COttJiECTKO TUB XPJt'TANTSHIP, AC, AC. Near. Stoneman's Switcii, Va., .March 12, 1SG3. Correspondence of The Aileghanian. The weather has been changeable and treacherous during the pasfweek snow, rain and sunshine in quick succession, completely spoiling the roads? and render ing a forward move an impossibility. The discipline and health of the ajiy. are good, and the moral status far above that of any ether period since the commence ment of hostilities. Gen. Hooker is very popular with both oGcera and men, and it is no exaggeration to say tlrat there is os much confidence reposed in him as there was in Gen. M'Clellan. He gives tvery department his personal superinten dence. He has issued eomo new orders that possess the merit of being practica ble, among which tre those pev.mkting three privates out of every hundred men io visifheir homes on furlough, regula ting tho number of ofScers to be absent trow a regiment at a time, and ordering all kbsent ai:d loafing officers to -report for duty it once on pain of dismissal. The commissaries are ordered, to supply the troors with freth bread four days a week." We also receive potatoes, onion and fresh beef. The sale of whisky by sutlers and pcdlers is prohibited. The men are well led and clothed, and wheD uot marching through the mud are comparatively com f'criabla. Much diversity of opinion prevails here relative to the organization of negro regi latata. Among officers the project meets viih much opposition, but the men gen erally favor it. Ad idea prevails among them that if the negro was enlisted and organized into companies or regiment?, he vould be detailed to perform much of the lalor now necessarily imposed on the private soldier. In this army, to-day, there are' not less than twenty thousand xaen laborlug on fatigue duty, building bridges, making roads, unloading and leading cars and vessels, and other labo rious and in many instances servile duties, degrading in their tendency and dLscour iug to the meji. Give this army twenty thousand negro Lborers, and you will re lieve exactly that number of white men from detailed duties, and strengthen the crmy by tbe addition of twenty thousand men to their legitimate duties as soldiers. The rebels understand the use of the nc ro. They put the axe and spade? in his hand, and he does their labor, while their co'diers are at liberty wfjlit. Oar ccmpany came off picket on la.st Wedarsday, and I know of nothing that vould interest you more than n descrip tion of what we do and Low we do it when an that duty. The picket line where we goon post is about three miles from camp. It is the grand guard in the rear cf our army. It may truly be called a line of human beings, extending from the Poto mac to the Rappahannock, through which Ect even a mouse could fecp without being observed. This line is supported first by Equad? of men numbering twenty five each, oCicered by a Lieutenant, a Fcrgeant and three Corporals. From these men the reliefs are formed, three in number, relieving each other every two hours. Should the cuerny advance against the line, the sentinels are ordered to Cret tkeir guns, retreat on the squads, and if 1 ey are not then able to withstand the onset, oguin retreat to the reserve, which consists of several regiments rdaced at intervals of a mile or more apart, nnd about half a mile in the rear of the line Thcse reserves are expected to delay the advance cf the euemy, if not able to repel them, until the main body in camp be Hoed to form in line of battle. Letters received here from iriends at home make complaints concerning a sen tence in & former letter of mine, wherein I made mention of tho circumstance cf Corporal Samuel W. Davis having met f the lamented Hugh J. Humphreys, after the battle of Fredericksburg, while the irae Ca hi way, mortally wooade-V to the hospital. In saying what I did, I had not the slightest intention of doing to correct the mistake. The fact is, poor Humphreys did not leave the field until our regiment had first left, and at the time of his accidental meeting with Corporal Davis, it was then reforming where it had first formed. Sam fought bravely thro' out the entire action, doing yeoman ser-' vice. Since thcjbattle, he has performed all the duties required of a commissioned officer besides acting as Orderly Sergeant and all for a Corporal's pay and emolu ments. He is deservedly popular with the company, and nothing would gratify us more than to see him promoted to a Lieutenancy. w The Adjutantship cf our. regiment, made vacant by the death of James C. Noon, has been filled by the appointment of Edward Charles Renclere, formerly CoL Speakman's clerk, to that position. In this instance, the just claims of Cambria county have been given the go-by entire ly by the regimental officials. Sergt. T. L. lleyer, of Co. A, should have been the man. He is thoroughly posted in milita ry matters, is a gentleman withal, and eminently entitled to promotion. Wesley Whitehead and Stephen Con rad, both members of Co. F, who have been for-several mouths past sick in hos pital at Frederick, Md., have rejoined u?, they being fully recovered from their in disposition. The general health of the company is good.

We are at present encamped on Miner's Hill, live miles distant from the George town Aqueduct, where we are enjoying that loug-lookcd-for and oft promised vest with a vengeance. Our picket duty is harder than we ever had in front, we having to perform it two days out of every seven. Between picket, brigade and camp guards, and fatigue duty, the men are on duty two thirds of the time. We all ex pected when we were brought from the front that furloughs would be granted in sueh numbers at a time a3 to enable the men" to get home this winter; but, alas for human calculations ! instead of grant ing leave to four or five men in a coaipanj at one time, they only grant five to a reg iment, officers included. So our hopes of seeing friends from whom we have been separated for nearly two years ace dashed to the ground. The weather has been very changeable during the last ten daj-s, suow, rain and sdeet ire uently occurring in one day. The bad state ot the weather renders it impos sible for any military movements to be made at present, but hold your peace until the weather clerk gets in a good hujaor, and then you may louk fur good news from Fighting Joe and his army. We will send the Johnny Rabs somo peace messengers which will havo more effect than ail the pcicc uiseting3 of the Copper heads wou.! J have i:i a century. The army have confidence in Fighting Joe, and the oft repeated assertion that the army would not fight under any General but Little 2-Iac will tret its- death-blow. The army loved and respected M'Clellan more than any other General but we are not fighting for men, but for our country, the laud of liberty, and the assertion is an open insult offered to the fallen heroes of Fredericks burg, and an insult to the living ones. We will fight under any General until peace is restored. I observe tho peace howlers of the North arc still recommending a cessation of hostilities, declaring a compromise-can be made. A cessation cannot be thought of for one moment. The moment we agree to propose such a thing, that moment we' admit our inability to suppress the rebellion. A compromise can no be made with the rebels ou any but one term, namely, the recognition of their confeder acy. The cessation ' of hostilities and compromise measures means nothing more nor less than the separation of States. Are the ljyal men of the North willing this should take place ? Are they willing to agree to a separation of the Union which cost our forefathers so much, and which they consecrated to Liberty by their blood ? Is the army willing for a separa tion? Are they willing for a compromise looking to a recognition ? JVr, nver ! Compromise with traitor?, never! Com promise with the men who are led on by the most diabolic passions, never ! Com promise with tho men- who are gloating over the blood of thousands of our blath ers, never! Compromise with the men who have sent tho ploughshare cf destruc tion broad cast through the length and breadth of our land, never! Compromise with he men. who have sent sorrow and weeping to every Northern home, never I Compromise and shake hands with the traitors over the graves of our slaughtered brothers, never I never I Our country 13 worth all the sacrifices that have been or that cau be made. We are able to suppress this infamous rebellion, and suppress it we must, though it should be by .war to the knife and the knife to the hilt. B. Spring. Sunday last was about the first genuine spring day we have had.this season. The air, to be sure, possessed a certain wintry tinge, but still the general aspect was genial and Maydayish. We noticed several robins sure harbingers of the season of "etherial mildness" flitting about between sunrise and sunset, proba bly on a visit to their old tramping grounds. But they failed to conclude to settle. The succeeding day, by reason of a revisitatiou of Boreas, they had all pre sented bills southward and seceded. -Thereanent which is built a mournful le gem! : "The first bird of spring Attempted to siug, But ere he Lad uttered a note, lie fell from the limb, A dead bird was him The music had friz in hi3 throat!" At present we are being favored with any quantity of rain a real Equinoctial storm and no mistake. The result is that our good sleighing is ruined, the snow having meantime almost completely disappeared. March came in like a lion : may it go out like a lamb. We look to spring ! Sword Presentation. Oa our out side this week we print the proceedings cf a sword presentation to Lieut. W. J. Nugent, of Co.), 78th Penna. Vols , by the members of his company. Lieut. N. is a native of the northern part of this county, and a gentleman and true patriot. We are proud to see. that he sustains so enviable a position in the estimation of his command. The report of the affair is clipped from the war correspondence of the Hollidaysburg Standard. Personal. Sergt. Ca?per W. Easly, of Co. A, 133d Pa. Vols., who has been at homo for some days past on furlough, paid our town a visit on Monday. He was looking. well as ever, and reported himself favorably impressed with sojering. Success!

The New York Tribune first issued in 1841, now in its twenty-second year, has obtained both a largej- and a more widely diffused cir culation than aty other newspaper ever pub lished in America Though it has suffered, in common with other journals, from the volunteering and departure of tens of thous ands of its patron3 to serve in the War for the Union, its circulation ou this 6th day of December, 18G2, U as follows : Daily, 50,125 Semi Weekly, 17,250 Weekly, " 148,000 Aggregate, 215,375 Pre-eminently a journal of News and of Lit Vrature, The Tribune has political convictions, which are well Characterized by the single word Uepcelicax. It is Republican in its hearty adhesion to the great truth tht "God lias made of one blood all nations of men" Republican in its assertion of the equal and inalienable rights of ail men to "lifv .liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" Republican in its steadfast, earnest, defiant hostility to ev ery scheme and effort of the Slave Power, from the Annexation of Texas to the great Rebellion, to grasp, the empire of the New World and wield the resources of our country for Its own aggrandizement Republican in its antagonism to the aristocrats and de.-pots of the Old World, who fond!- hail In the per ils and calamities suddenly thrust upon us by their American counterpart the overthrow and ruin cf the Model Republic Republican in its hope and trust, its faith and etrort, that this atrocious Rebellion must result in the signal overthrow of its plotters, and the firm establishment of equal rights and equal laws throughout the whole extent of our country, wherein Liberty aud Union shall indeed bo "one and inseparable" henceforth and forever. The Tribune icvoies attention in calmer times, and to some extent in these, to Educa tion, Temperance, Agriculture, Invention, and whatever else m:iy minister to the spiritual and material progress aud well-being of man kind ; but for the present its energies and its columns are mainly devoted to the invigora tion and success of the War for the Univn. It3 special correspondents accompany every considerable army aud report every important incident of that great struggle which we trust is soon to result in the signal and conclusive triumph of the National arms and iu the res-, toration of Peace and Thrift to our distracted, blteding country. We believe that no other wise can a fuller or more accurate riew of the progress and character of this momentous contiict be obtained than through the regular perusal of our column?,' And we earnestly solicit the cooperation of all friends of the National cause, which we regard aud uphoki as that cf Universal Humanity, to aid us in extending its circulation.
