are men of education, and converse freely upon the great issue involved in the war. We have now forces enough to give them an unpleasant reception. Should they retreat this way we think none could escape to tell the tale. E. S. W. Quartermaster Ashmead's letter. Chambersburgh, October 14. To the Editor of the Philadelphia Press: sir: The account in one of your contemporaries of public property taken and destroyed at this place by the rebel cavalry, is so exaggerated that I feel to remove the articles into the cars, but the railroad company could not furnish me with cars. I secured the safety of my papers, horses and mules, and remained in town and witnessed their entrance and departure, without removing my uniform, or being captured or paroled. There were, probably, seven hundred muskets, two hundred sabres, four hundred pistols, and a lot of accoutrements belonging to the State, which were also taken or destroyed. Albert S. Ashmead, Acting Assistant-Quartermaster.
