ter-- of Col. Oakford's 14th Regiment of Pennsylvania, were brought back here to day by Chas W. Rossler, Chief of Police at Scranton.-- Fifteen had deserted from that regiment alone, and, as it was deemed necessary to make an example, these will doubtless be shot. Nearly all the other deserters have been caught, and are their way hither. Two supposed Secessionists, by the name of Thomas Wilson and Jacob C. Grove, were arrested yesterday by private John Drew, assisted by Wm. Murphy, of McMullen's Independent Rangers. The 6th, 21st and 23d Pennsylvania regiments marched to Falling Waters last night from Williamsport. Col. Thomas' Cavalry, including the First City Troop, is with them. There is very little sickness among the troops. But one serious case — typhoid fever-- is reported. The six injured by accidental gun-shot wounds are doing well, and all are likely to recover. James R. Mifflin, a wagon-driver from Williamsport, was drowned last night in the canal near
e guides. The fording is naturally one of the best on the river, and the proper ascent on the Virginia shore very easy. Within a radius of five miles from the ford lay encamped the 2d and 3d Pennsylvanians, under Gen. Wynkoop; the regular cavalry, four companies of the 2d, Parker's battery of artillery, the 6th, 21st, and 23d Pennsylvania regiments, under Col. Thomas; the 14th, 15th, and 24th Pennsylvanians, under Gen. Negley; the 11th Pennsylvania regiment, 1st Wisconsin regiment and McMullen's Independent Rangers. under Col. Abercrombie. Gen. Negley's and Gen. Wynkoops brigades actually struck their tents at 3 o'clock this morning and marched to the ford. The whole column, embracing eighteen full regiments and several detached corps, such as Major Doubleday's two companies, the 2d cavalry and the 1st city troops and Perkins' artillery, with the exception of the 4th Connecticut, lying in camp at Hagerstown. are now encamped here, and are under marching orders, and at 3 o
y and the honor of our flag, for a few days longer, but failed to gain support. Three members of the New York Ninth Regiment yesterday arrested Lieut. Harlett, of the Rebel cavalry force, while secreted in a house here. This officer is said to have commanded the troops that fired from Harper's Ferry upon Col. Stone's brigade when passing opposite that point. The jail where John Brown was imprisoned, and the scene of his execution, are constantly visited by our volunteers. Capt. McMullen's Rangers have found numerous secreted arms. Major Joseph Knipe, of Gen. Williams' staff, has recruited a new rifle regiment for the war from those about to disband. He will assume command. Col. Wallace, of the Indiana Zouaves, has a new regiment ready for him at Indianapolis, to be armed with the sabre bayonet and Enfield rifle. Col. Clark, of the New York Nineteenth (Cayuga) Regiment, is under arrest, upon charges made by his officers. He will be court-martialed soon.
y relieved.--Much fear exists in this city of an invasion, particularly among officials. I have noticed, for two or three days past, that several Senators and members of Congress go to Baltimore by the evening train and return here again next morning. Such a habit could only be practiced by a fear of a night attack. Twelve or fourteen regiments are ordered to Harper's Ferry, to supply the vacancies created by deserters and the absence of those whose time has expired. The feeling of the privates in Patterson's command is varied.--Some say that they will not serve under the " Abolition General" Banks, who they have no confidence in. McMullen's Rangers and the Scott Legion, who served with honor in the Mexican campaign, intend to go home.--On the other hand, some from the interior of the State are loud in their criticisms of the military movements of Patterson, claiming for him the title of "rebel" and " traitor," saying he should have attacked Johnston, or cut off his retreat.
nment, immediately ordered the militia of three counties — viz: Tazewell, McDowell and Buchanan — to assemble at this place on Friday next, to rendezvous immediately at Wyoming Court-House, there to await the orders of Maj. Gen. Chapman. It would not be amiss to state that Gen. Bowen was with Gen. Floyd in the battle at Cross Lanes and there done his county some service. He will lead the militia from this county, and I am not boasting when I say they are proud of such a leader. Ex-Governor McMullen visited our county during our recent Circuit Court. While here, he addressed the people upon the subject of the war, the Virginia Convention, the recent Legislature; and announced himself a candidate for the next Congress of the Southern Confederacy. Mac is hard to beat, and it seems to your correspondent that unless we have a war horse to run against him, he will be one of the next-representatives from Virginia in that Congress. No man in our district will make a better representa
ing some casualties. Col. Settle led several companies of his Irish to charge the batteries, when he was brought down by a shot in the leg. Col. Smith engaged the Confederates on the left, and Col. Lowe directly in front, Col. Lowe was killed. McMullen's howitzer battery and Snyder's two field ideces got into the best position possible, and soon silenced two of the Confederates' guns.--The fire slackened at internals, but grew more furious as night approached, when the German Brigade was led it have been serious. [Second Dispatch.] Louisville, Ky., Sept. 13. --Among the names mentioned for gallantry and soldierly conduct by Gen. Rosencranz, are Gen. Benham; Colonels McCook, Little, and Low, Captains Hartzuff, Snyder, and McMullen, and Major Burke. Gen. Rosencranz's official account of the battle is very similar to that already sent. He says there were about twenty Federals killed and about 100 wounded. He found two stands of colors, a few prisoners, and some camp e
Hartsuff, whose object was an armed reconnaissance. The enemy played upon our forces terrifically with musketry, canister and shell. Col. Lyttle led several companies of Irishmen to charge the battery, when he was brought down by a shot in the leg. Col. Smith's 13th Ohio engaged the enemy on the left, and Col. Lowe's 12th Ohio directly in the front. Col. Lowe fell dead at the head of his regiment, early in the hottest of the fire, by receiving a ball in the forehead. Captain McMullen's howitzer battery, and Captain Snyder's two field-pieces, meantime, were got into the best position possible under the circumstances, and soon silenced two of the rebel guns. The fire slackened at intervals, but grew more furious as night approached. The German brigade was led gallantly into action by Col. McCook, under the direction of Adjutant-General Hartsuff; but, after a furious fight of three hours, darkness compelled the recall of the troops, and the men laid on their ar
great. The militia of Buchanan turned out on the Sabbath, and commenced blockading the road some eighteen miles below their county seat. Runners from there reached here this morning calling for help. We have every reason to believe that our gallant Brigadier-General, Rees T. Bowen, will have his entire Brigade upon the line of march for the scene of conflict in a few days. The election came and went off very well. Walter Preston is no doubt elected by a handsome majority. He beat McMullen in this county over one hundred votes. Two failures occurred in this and the adjoining county of Buchanan this week--one a good one, and the other not quite so good. They failed to vote in Buchanan for President, or for a member of Congress, not knowing when it was to be. Our people (two or three of them) attempted to hold a meeting here on election day to put down the price of salt at the Salt Works, but could not get more than half a dozen citizens in the Court-House for that purpos
