ears to the groans of their suffering patriots in the field. Our countrymen in Chili may have the satisfaction of knowing that their contribution mingles in our treasury with the contributions of loving countrymen, from wherever an American has carried his country's enterprise, or followed her flag; and that from the resources thus accumulated succor and consolation will flow impartially to the national soldier, whether in Louisiana or North-Carolina, Virginia or Kentucky, Mississippi or Maryland. If he be anywhere under our flag, there the National Sanitary Commission will follow and find him. I have the honor to be, gratefully, your obedient servant, Henry W. Bellows, President.

em a belt as broad and as burning as the elliptic. They can run a burning plough-share over the hot-beds of puling fanaticism, from which sprang the Ate turned loose on the South. If our President will but announce and permit such a policy, he will be justified in the eyes of the civilized world, and will evoke a new spirit in the South that has never yet been called into action. Thousands of men are just now thrust out with cruelty and ignominy from Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Maryland, and they are thirsting to go back with fire and sword. Thousands more of our people, who have felt that mere defence of our own land was not the true policy, would be stirred to their inner depths by the trumpetcall of invasion. We believe firmly that myriads at the North are prepared to take refuge in our ranks from the storm of despotism that is darkening around them. If it be necessary, in order to save ourselves from cavalry raids and negro massacres, that we should raise the war-
less has his Scotch cap at hand, ready to make his exit. If Generals Jackson and Longstreet have really reached the Relay House, all communication between Washington and Baltimore and the West is thereby entirely cut off. The reported blowing up of the Long Bridge is now generally believed. A lady who came through to this city from near Washington states that she was an eyewitness to the affair. The enemy, before evacuating Acquia Creek, destroyed a large amount of stores and provisions. Later intelligence gives us the gratifying assurance that General Jackson has entered Maryland by the route above indicated, and is now on a tour to the most important and inviting point between Baltimore and Washington. It is now useless to speculate upon probabilities. The war has assumed a new phase, and our citizens must expect hereafter to hear news that will startle amidst both good and bad report. The tables have been turned, and the confederate army is now an army of invasion.

laid low in the graves of a hundred battle-fields? Yes, they begin to feel that they were in the wrong; that there was some mistake somewhere; and for the first time they pray for peace. But this is only their first lesson. It is probable that our peace commissioners will have several other such to administer before the enemy shall be perfectly satisfied that there is no possible peace for him until, he withdraws every soldier from the soil of every State, including Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, and Delaware, and yield up to their lawful owners every town and fort he holds all around our borders. Cincinnati, for example, would, we are assured, burn well. The Dispatch has the following: In the present instance the very enormity of the loss in prisoners attributed to the enemy excites incredulity, although no man doubts that he reporter stabted accurately the prevalent belief in Martinsburgh at the time. We feel as well assured that General Lee, if he has met the enemy in
The battle of Gettysburgh. The days of June were nearly done; The fields, with plenty overrun, Were ripening 'neath the harvest sun, In fruitful Pennsylvania! Sang birds and children--“All is well!” When, sudden, over hill and dell, The gloom of coming battle fell On peaceful Pennsylvania! Through Maryland's historic land, With boastful tongue and spoiling hand, They burst — a fierce and famished band-- Right into Pennsylvania! In Cumberland's romantic vale Was heard the plundered farmer's wail And every mother's cheek was pale, In blooming Pennsylvania! With taunt and jeer, and shout and song, Through rustic towns, they passed along-- A confident and braggart throng-- Through frightened Pennsylvania! The tidings startled hill and glen; Up sprang our hardy Northern men, And there was speedy travel then All into Pennsylvania! The foe laughed out in open scorn; For Union men were coward-born, And then — they wanted all the corn That grew in Pennsylvania! . . . . . . . It was th

hing was visible under the glass but a few solitary pickets and some four companies of cavalry, but on the road passing through Keedysville toward Boonsboro several horsemen were seen taking their onward course through the rich fair fields of my Maryland. Lieutenant Martindale conceived the idea of spoiling their sport, and sent down five or six from his little squad, who, descending on the unfortunate graybacks with that impetuosity which has ever characterized the men of the First New-York days they had passed through Boonsboro and some toward Frederick, but since the main body has been moving on to Hagerstown — where next, heaven knows! unless we meet and repel the invader from our soil. This is no time for fireside talk on the probabilities of this grand raid. Now is no time for delay. Let us meet them when and where they be found, and teach them once for all the lesson that Maryland and Pennsylvania have no sympathies with their ruthless invaders. Yours, as ever, C. C

ging the Star-Spangled banner, which soon drowned the rebel horns. This created intense feeling, and the Union boys sent up shout after shout. Another incident, worthy of note, occurred after a portion of the rebel army had passed into Pennsylvania. Four Union prisoners, captured near Carlisle, were brought into town under guard, when the two young ladies above named stepped into the street and presented each prisoner with a bouquet, tied with red, white, and blue. In passing through Maryland the rebel army lost large numbers by desertion, the most of them being Virginians and North-Carolinians, while some few were Northern men and foreigners. When the Union cavalry entered the town several rebel soldiers came in and gave themselves up. After the passage of Longstreet's corps every thing remained quiet until Sunday, when, about six o'clock in the evening, thirteen cavalrymen belonging to a New-York regiment made a dash into town, and, with the assistance of the Union boys of

t spell of despair, While a peal as of victory swells on the air, Rolling out to the River. And that cry, with a thousand strange echoings spread, Till the ashes of heroes seemed stirred in their bed, And the deep voice of passion surged up from the dead-- Ay! press on to the River! On! on! like the rushing of storms through the hills On! on! with a tramp that is firm as their wills, And the one heart of thousands grows buoyant and thrills As they pause by the River. Then the wan face of Maryland, haggard and worn, At that sight, lost the touch of its aspect forlorn, And she turned on the foeman full statured in scorn, Pointing stern to the River. And Potomac flowed calm, scarcely heaving her breast, With her low lying billows all bright in the West, For the hand of the Lord lulled the waters to rest Of the fair rolling River. Passed! passed! the glad thousands march safe through the tide. (Hark, Despot! and hear the wild knell of your pride, Ringing weird-like and wild, pealing u
