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
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

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.

LETTER rilOM TBI ' CAllMtlA. G CARDS" VARI
ETY A SOLDIER OS COMPROMISE.
Correspondence of Tha Aileghanian.
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
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

"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 !

ripiIE NEW-YORK TRIBUNE. :
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 :
Semi Weekly, 17,250
Weekly, " 148,000
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.

price of priming pftpcr and other materials
