C'ouderkpoit, Pa. WfliaMdATi Nov. 1861 it. W. McALARNEY, EDITOR. SYNOPSIS OP WAR NEWS. NEW YORK, NOV. 13, 1801. —The War Department lias issued orders con cerning several Military Departments: The Department of New-Mexico is to be eoouuauded by C'ol. E. It. S. Cauleyj, the Department of Kansas, including Kansas, part of the Indian Territory, Ne-j braska, Colorado, and Dakota, is to be; commanded by Maj.-Gen. Hunter j Department of Missouri, including mjuri, lowa, Miunesota, \\ isco p . a iu, llii noii, Arkansas, Kentucky of the Cumberland River, is to bo commanded by Maj.-Gen. llalleck ; the Department of Ohio, iuclu-iiug Ohio, Michigan, In diana, Kentucky east of the Cumberland River, and Tennessee, is to be command ed by Brig. Gbu. Buell; the Departuieut of Western Virginia, including that por tion of the .State lately in the old De partment of Ohio, is to be eommauded by Ilrig.-l ion. Rozencrans. Gcu. blunter has issued orders to the Missouri aruiy to avoid any encounter with the enemy not forced upon it, till the Department can be reorganized and the trobps consolidated. Wo have further news of the disas trous affair at Guyandotte, Ya., some ao count of which we gave yesterday. The intelligence we print this morning is of a nature to make one's blood run cold. It appears that the inhabitants of the accurs ed town entered into a conspiracy with lhe Rebels outside to destroy the 250 or 300 I nion troops there piaced. Accoid ingly they proffered to our men kindly hospitalities, and invited them on a cer tain night to their bouses. Having them [ thus at their tables, they hung out sig nals to the Rebel cavalry, marking every house where were any L nion soiuiers.— The Rebels rushed into the town, enter ed the huu-">, and massacred their vic tims in cold blood, the treacherous euter tainers —men. women, and, incredible as it seems, children even—aidiug in the carnage. Col. Ziegler came tu the rescue of his comrades too lato tu save them, but lie laid the town in ashes. Full particu lars have not reached us, and if the intel ligence yet to come shall prove 11.is story a lie, ail will rejoice; we four, however, that it is too dismally true. We have excellent news from Eastern Tennessee The Union men there have risen, burned railroad bridges on the East Tennessee road, cut down telegraph wires, and in various effective ways con tributed to the ruin of the Rebel cause. The greate.-t rage and almost despair has possession of the traitors at these eviden-j ces of the feeling they hoped they had: forever suppressed.— Tribune. NEW YORK, NOV. 12. A battle oc-j ourrcd in Piketon, Pike Couuty, Ken fucky, between the Union forces under Gen. Nelson and the Rebels under Gen.

The I nited States frigate San Jacinto, fapt. \Ydikes, came into the lloads to day with Sliuell and Mason as prisoners on board. They Imtl embarked on board an Eng lish mail steamer. Hearing of the fact, (.'apt. Wilkes determined to take them, and, coming up with the steamer in the Bermuda Channel, he sent aboard vnd demanded Hie surrender of the arch reb els. The reply was, that there was not force enough to take them. Capt. Wilkes there upon sent an additional force, and at the same time put the iSau Jacinto into a convenient position. Messrs. Blideil and Mason were then surrendered. The English steamer took them on board knowing who they wcie, their destination and business. Capt. Wilkes is under stood to have acted on bis own responsi bility. Messrs. Slidel! and Mason asked permission of (Jen. Wool to sand letters to their friends, which was granted. The letters were open, of course. Between 4,000 and 5,000 T'nion troops have suddenly appeared in Aeeomac County, Eastern shore of Virginia, where there are 1,800 rebels in arms. Commodore Goldsborough dispatched a gunboat to that region to-day. A regiment of Cavalry is expected hore in a few days. A flag of truce to-day brought about one hundred supporters of the Union, in cluding about twenty-five women. They relate a sad tale o' suffering and oppres sion. A number of persons have recently been thrown into prison for not support ing the rebellion, including Mr. Peudon, a Baptist minister. The victory at Port Royal greatly de pressed the Rebels and encouraged the Union men, of whom there are large i numbers. Ffteen thousand men are now at An napolis, ready to embark. Their destina tion is unknown, but the current rumor lis that they will re-enforce Gen. Sher man, while another destination is assigned to them by others.

S.NOV IIILL CAMP, Nov. 11,1861. I MR. EDITOR: AS it may not be unin , teresting to you, or through your paper to your readers, to receive a few lines from a soldier of the 4th Wisconsin Reg iment, I have concluded to avail myself of the ppare moments I have to give you a con use account of our march from our embarkation so far as this place. We left Baltimore Monday evening, 8 o'clock P. M., on board the steamer "Adelaide," sailing down the smooth waters of Ches apeake Bay 150 miles, leading that of "Georgia" with Captain Richards Compa ny of Cavalry from Pennsylvania, and one Company of Artillery from Bostou, and having as transport the "Pocahontas," "Jersey Blue," and the steamer "Star," witii $0 mules and twenty baggage wag gons and accompanying baggage. We' landed at the mouth of the Micomoko river, opposite the village of Whitehaven ! after a ride of 40 hours, leaving all our consorts in the rear, which some of them did uot bring up for some hours, some grounding on the bar at the mouth of the river. We inarched eight miles that night, to a small village by the name of Princess Ann ; nest day through mud, water, and a drenching rain, twenty-two miles to this village, which by the I think -Sandy Plain" would be a more appropri ate name. We are expecting re-enfore uicnts every day from Baltimore, they in part consist of a liegiment of Delaware volunteers, of which two Companies are already here. On their arrival we shall proceed up the river, and uudertake the dislodgenieut of the rebels who are strong ly fortified, aud report says, six thousand strong, about twelve miles from hero. Last night a detachment of Captain R.'s Cavalry were driven in and almost made prisoners through the treachery of the guides who led them into an ambuscade, but the trick was discovered before they were surrounded. If we succeed in rout ing them we shall probably cross the Hue into \ irgiuia, two counties of which are perfectly isolated from the rest of the i State by our blockading fleet at the mouth! of the Chesapeake, which we will soon conquer. The activity of the officers for the last few hours, and the frequent re-1 ports coming iu, portend that the hour is | nut far distant when we may expect an attack. A few nights ago the rebels burned down a bridge which it was in tended we should use if necessarv to cross the river, and also with which we were, to get supplies, but that has not caused any delay, and they are already repairing it. This State is entirely behind that of! its sisters in the North and West, every-' thing is old fasliiouod, even the most sim ple improvements, the old English style predominating. The transportation of our baggage and provisions for an army of over two thou sand men besides Cavalry and Artillery and the necessary grain for them over a heavy, sandy and muddy road, for thirty miles, is uot the least of the inennveuieu iences incident to such an expedition,and reuiiuds me much of the account of a similar occurrence which took place and proved most disastrous to the British in loss of horses during the Crimean war in moving batteries and the necessary accom paniments from the coast to lialaklava, and would terminate as fatally to us had we as large an army, or no other route. . Gen. l)ix ohose this route as being more economical and less likely to attract the attention of the rebel leaders in a strate ; getic point of view, but I think he will choose another route for the reinforce ments, as lightening the expense will not compensate for the great delay of time, and thereby allowing the enemy to strengthen their position. This State ha? given a good round majority for the 1. niou, electing all of the L nion candi dates byoverwhelming majorities—a hard nut for the secessionists to crack here after, Yours truly, E. LYMAN. DEATH OF GEN HOUSTON. —Memphis papers of a receut date announce the death of the old hero of San Jacinto, Sam Houston, who is reported to have died on the bth ult. llis coteuiporaries are near ly all gone from the scene—Jackson, Webster, Clay, Calhoun, Marcy, Claytou, Benton, etc. Scott has just retired. Buchanan, Dallas and Cass have already doue so. A new generation of public tnen lias come up. Pity he did not die before giving in his adhesion to treason against his couutry, or after the Union shall have been thoroughly restored and this treason crushed out with a heavy hand. RUSSIA AND JAPAN. —The Japanese Government having treated the Russian Envoy rather scurvily, it h.°s resented the insult by taking possession of the island of Isas Siula, after a short fight. This island is about 30 miles long and 15 miles wide, lying midway in the straits of Corea, and forming the key to the sea of Japau. Gen. Burns, of Ohio, has taken com mand of Col. Ruber's Brigade. lie is the choice of Gen, "McClellan. OUR ARM? CORRESPONDENCE WASHINGTON, D. C. NOV. 12,18G1. FRIEND MAC : We have just come off "Dress Parade" and while waiting for ra tions, I propose to spend a few moments in writing to you. Contrary to our ex pectations, we were assigned t the Fifty- I third Regiment, Col. Brooke, instead of the Second, Col. Mann. Speaking my , own sentiments, and that of the members iof the Company generally I believe the ! transfer to this Regiment is highly satis factory. Unless we are most wofully de ceived in our coocluaions, based as they j are on a close observation, our Colonel is a noble-hearted gentlemen, and a true soldier. Though yet youug he has seen five years of service in the regular army. j The other regimental officers are men of a true soldierly and gontleman-like bear ing, nearly all of them too, are like the Colonel, yunng men. The Company of ficers so far as we have made their ac quaintance are men whom one can not but respect ; men who set good examples for their men, and who, as a consequence, .exert a good influence over them. All along the road from Harrisburg here we were praised as beiug the best behaved Regiment which had passed along the road fur many a day. We mention this fact for the better satisfaction of our friends at borne, who we know are anx iously waiting for news from the boys, and who, we feel assured, will feel our absence much loss keenly to know that the organization into which we have been thrown is a good one. We arc at present encamped just out of the city, a distance of perhaps three-fourths of a mile, and a most beautiful place it is too. Ihe dome of the Capitol rises majesticaly in the dis tance, constantly reminding us that our duty aud purpose is to maintain inviolate the integrity of that Union over which float the Stars and Stripes —that fitting emblem of our country's greatness. In order to get some idea of the vastness of the preparations made by Government for j the suppression of rebellion and restora- tiou of peace and harmony, one should be right here at head-quarters. True, when we read of the regiments which one after another are trausported iu rapid succession from points both near aod re mote, to the national rendezvous, we are apt to think that we know nearly all worth knowing iu regard to the war; but when we get right here, and when for miles troops are stationed in every direc tion, then is it that we sit down and sagely conclude that we knew nothing before, and but little even now. We are rapidly becoming accustomed to the din of war, for almost constantly yesterday we were greeted by the distant boom of heavy cannonading. Greenhorns that we were, we had supposed a battle on the Potomac. The tiring was in that direction. Again too was our curiosity awakened and many conjectures brought up in the evening by the most splendid display of fire-works which it has ever been our fortune to witness. A constant succession of rockets thrown to a great height and bursting in mid air, displaying the symbolic red, white and blue, caused some of us to think that our conjecture sofa battle were correct, aud this display iu honor of a victory gained, while others thought that the lights were signals denoting an ad vance movement on the part of the rebels. The thing turned out however quite dif ferently. This morning when the news boys carnc to camp with the morning pa pers, there was a geueral rush among the officers to obtain them. Of course we were anxious to know what was the occa ■ sion of the display in question. Well we [did get a paper and lo aud behold ! Gen. Bleuker's Brigade had been compliment ing Gen. McClellan on his succession to I the chief command of the United States Army. Thus you see was all our splen did conjectures of great naval victories, ! of hasty advance movements upon either ' side "skedaddled." Speaking of advance movements, I can see no reason why Government should be in any hurry to make an advance at pres- ; cnt. 3ly supposition is this, the rebels have now and for some time have had every thing available in the rauks, rag, shag, bobtail and all, whereas we have an im mense body of men, who to be effective need nothing but the drill and arms, all of which arc rapidly being attained. In addition, there is daily arriving here from one to two regiments more, and probably many thousands are rendezvousing at other great military depots. Hence the conclusion that every day adds to our effective strength, while the supply not yet drawn upon is immense. On the contrary, the rebels can be gaining nothing unless it be in efficiency with arras, and even this wo suppose to be counter bal anced by demoralization. Unless we greatly err, somebody is certain to be whipped, and that soundly too, but When, is more than we dare to predict. One thing is certain, we hear loss of battles and probable battles here than we did at home. And yet one gathers the idea that the white tents scattered in every direction for miles, the immense bodies of men arouod and about them, the glit tering arms, the constant drill, the close surveilancs of all papers, the strains of martial music, the constant never ceasing bustle in every department, the arrival of train after train of clattering cars load ed to overflowing with human freight, portends something serious. We hope and trust that it means, down with se cession and rebellion, and a short rope to a steady limb for traitors. We believe that the thing is rapidly coming to a fo cus, and unless the fortune of war is against us, we purpose to be with you long before the three years for which we enlisted has expired. But still it seems hardly worth while to speculate upon that point, for there is an uncertainty about the thing which time alone may deter mine fur us. One thing is certain, vvc think you will see few, very few of the Potter boys in the old familiar haunts until the war shall have been terminated by the crushing out of secession. If we rightly judge, most of theiu are deter mined to see rebellion put down ere they turn their faces homeward. During our short stay here we have had the pleasure of an extended ramble through the Cap itol. And when one rambles through its spacious halls and views the tastefully arranged plans, when rising flight after flight of steps until at last he stands upon the last finished landing place of the new dome, aud sees spread out before him the beautifully arranged grounds, and in the distance the Department buildings, when he takes into consideration the vast in terests centered in these various depart- merits, then is it that he begins to feel a strong desire weliiug up within his bo som to see the foul machinations of the arch conspirator, Jeff. Davis, recoil upon his own head crushing hiun to the dust— that he feels like fighting, and rf need be, dying in so good a cause as that in which we are engaged. —I3TH. To-day I obtained a pas? from Col. Brooke, and went down to the Navy yard, and there saw what to a greeny like myself was something of a sight. Artillery iu large supplies, of va rious sizes and patterns, pyramid upou pyramid (smail ones, of course,) of can non balls piled in the yard, while the ves sels unloading supplies,aod the machinery in constaut play in the various machinery departments, together with the din of cauDon firing at points down the bay, caused me to think of war in good earnest. It does seem serious when you take a view in your peaceful home away back amons the wooded bills of old I'otter. But as you near the scene of action, as you become accustomed to the handling of arms, as you learn the drill, as you place yourself in the various attitudes to be gone through with in course of an ac tion, the thing begins to grow lessseriou> to contemplate. But after all, perhaps when we come to fighting , the operations of war may prove more serious than they now look. But whether such proves to be the ease of not, we hope that none of the members of Company "G" will ercr have cause in any event to regret the step which they have takcD. Now then, a word or two more and I shall have done bothering you with my trash. Did you not agree to send me some papers ? It would do us a buucli of good to hear from home, I can tell you. You have probabiy sent us papers, but not one have we received, and although some of the boys have received letters from home contaiuiug words of cheer, yet not a word has been vouchsafed to me. I have written stacks of letterr, employed all my leisure time, in fact, at the desk. While I sit here waiting the boys are coming to our marquee and enquiring, "Why dou't we get the JOURNAL ?" Now Mr Editor, if you don't send us some papers we very much fear you will regret it as long as you shall occupy that old easy chair. Arthur, Barney, Cyrus, and in truth nearly all the boys are enjoying the very best of spirits. They make what is here called tip-top soldier boys. Some five or six of the Company are rather un well, but none of them seriously, I think. You may say to the people that so far as is known not a man in the entire Compa ny but is true blue, and stands up nobly to the work. We have now drilled two days in the "Manuel of Arms," with the arms in our hands, and I can assure you , the men make rapid progress in their use. ! Should any one haviog friends or relatives with us wish to write or direct any pack age to them the proper address will not come amiss, therefore I give it. Company G, 53d Regiment, P. V Care Col. J.
