t which there are gathered knots of these vagabonds at unseasonable hours. Of course the localities are selected with a view to privacy and remoteness from the inquisitive eyes of the watchman. Careful espionage may bring to light the object of these nocturnal consultations. The Twentieth, Twenty-first, and Twenty-fourth Regiments of Pennsylvania militia left Philadelphia for Chambersburg.--N. Y. Commercial, May 30. Colonel Mann's Regiment of Pennsylvania militia, arrived at Easton, Pa., and went into camp.--(Doc. 214.) The American citizens in Paris favorable to the Union breakfasted together in the Hotel du Louvre. About one hundred and fifty attended, of whom one-third were ladies, including the wife of General Scott. Mr. Cowdin presided. Resolutions were adopted, pledging the meeting to maintain the Union under any circumstances. Mr. Dayton, the U. S. Minister, said that, since his arrival in France, he could detect no unfriendly feeling on the part of France
s of our country. To-day two hundred and forty fugitives from East Tennessee, men driven from their homes, were fed in the Seminary yard in Danville, Ky. Some of them were elderly men and some young, and all had been compelled to abandon their families, and were ill-clad, almost barefoot, weary, and hungry. The whole of the two hundred and forty fugitives enlisted in the United States service at Camp Dick Robinson, in Kentucky.--Louisville Journal. The office of the Sentinel at Easton, Pa., was destroyed by a crowd of Unionists.--Philadelphia Press, August 20. The town of Commerce, Mo., forty miles from Cairo, Ill., which was taken by a battery planted by the secessionists, was retaken by five hundred troops sent down from Cape Girardeau by order of Gen. Fremont. The rebels made no stand with their battery on the approach of the National troops. Their number was about one hundred and fifty infantry and one hundred and fifty cavalry.--Boston Transcript, August 21.

igade was composed of Pennsylvania regiments, and consisted of the Ninth, Colonel Jackson; Tenth, Colonel McCalmont; Twelfth, Colonel Taggart; Bucktail Rifles, Lieutenant-Colonel T. L. Kane; a battalion of the Sixth; two squadrons of cavalry, and Easton's Battery — in all about 4,000 men. undertook the enterprise on the 20th. Dec., 1861. McCall ordered Brigadier-General Reynolds to move forward with his brigade toward Leesburg, as far as Difficult Creek, to support Ord, if required. When the fued. The Confederates were greatly outnumbered, and were soon so beaten that they fled in haste, carrying in their wagons little else than their wounded men. The brunt of the battle had fallen on the Sixth and Ninth Pennsylvania, the Rifles, and Easton's Battery. The National loss consisted of seven killed and sixty wounded; and their gain was a victory, and sixteen wagon-loads of excellent hay, and twenty-two of corn. Stuart reported his loss at forty-three killed and one hundred and forty-t
l, commanding the division holding the right of Gen. McClellan's army, moved forward from Camp Pierpont toward Dranesville, Loudoun County, Va., instructed to drive back the enemy's pickets, procure a supply of forage, and capture, if possible, a small cavalry force scouting betwixt Dranesville and the Potomac. Gen. Ord's brigade consisted of the 9th, Col. C. F. Jackson, 10th, Col. J. S. McCalmont, 12th, Col. John H. Taggart, the Bucktail Rifles, Lt.-Col. T. L. Kane, a part of the 6th, with Easton's battery and two squadrons of cavalry; in all, about 4,000 men. While halting to load forage just east of Dranesville, he was attacked by a Rebel brigade, led by Gen. J. E. B. Stuart, composed of the 11th Virginia, the 6th South Carolina, 10th Alabama, 1st Kentucky, the Sumter Flying Artillery, and detachments from two cavalry regiments — the whole force numbering, according to Rebel accounts, only 2,500. Stuart appears to have been likewise on a foraging excursion; as he had with him abou

plete. The number of prisoners taken at the time was considerable, but has since been greatly increased. There will probably be a thousand, as Col. Pegram, with six hundred men, after wandering in the hills for thirty-six hours, and being completely hemmed in, sent in to Gen. McClellan, proposing to surrender as prisoners of war. The General required an unconditional surrender, to which Col. Pegram submitted. He was brought into our camp at Beverly yesterday. His force is chiefly from Easton, Va., and was made up of their chivalry. Among the prisoners is a Professor in Hampden Sidney College, with a company of his students. It is also said that some of his college boys were killed. Yesterday, the news came that Gen. Garnett, who commands the rebels at Laurel Hill, was retreating with his whole force, six thousand men, towards the east. He is compelled to take a miserable mountain road, and as Gen. Morris is after him, all his guns and provisions must be captured, and perhaps
the traitorous band. We'll let them alone, when the cannon's loud thunder Shall cease to be heard on the smoke-covered plain, And the army of traitors is driven asunder, To rally in future time never again. We'll let them alone, when the contest is ended, And the fall of Fort Sumter is fully avenged; When the Stars and the Stripes every stronghold shall cover, And the fires of treason forever are quenched. We'll let them alone, in their dark shame forever, When every nation with scorn shall review The ruin of those who had thus dared to sever The proudest Republic the world ever knew! We'll let them alone, when our cannon have written In deeply-carved letters, on Sumter's thick wall, The story of how the mad “biter was bitten,” And who lost the day in the great game of ball. We'll let them alone, when from Maine to the waters Of grand old Pacific, the paean shall ring From millions of Freedom's proud sons and fair daughters: the Union forever — no Cotton is King! Easton, Pa.
strong, and a general fight ensued, the weapons being spades, axes, and clubs. Being soon overpowered, though not till after a hard fight, the Union men fled, carrying away with them Andrew Knox, John Allen, and Thomas Kinney, of their party, all very badly cut about the head with spades. The first blow struck was by a peace man, who inflicted a fearful blow upon one of the above. Of the tories two were probably fatally wounded, (one report, and apparently authenticated, states that the first one named is dead, and the other beyond recovery,) named Abraham Wildman and----Gorham. The Union men of course returned home to Danbury, and the peace flag still waves. It may be mentioned as of interest, in connection with the trouble in Fairfield County, that a peace flag was taken down in Easton on Thursday of last week, and brought into Bridgeport; and that preparations were making in Bridgeport on Sunday, to proceed to Hatterstown (in Monroe) to-day, (Monday,) to take down another.
de, the First Rifles, Lieutenant-Colonel Kane, Easton's battery, and two squadrons of cavalry. I lihe Kane rifle regiment, the cavalry force, and Easton's battery, are facts which came under your ownent, being ordered to lie flat on the ground. Easton's battery now opened upon the enemy from our l First cavalry, Lieut.-Colonel J. Higgins; and Easton's battery, Captain H. Easton, Pennsylvania Resn fired by the enemy. It was soon answered by Easton's battery, which imparted to me the fact that e field, where Ord was hotly engaged. I found Easton's battery judiciously placed and in full blasthad evidence of the fine artillery practice of Easton's battery. The road was strewed with men and field during the heat of the conflict — whilst Easton's and the enemy's batteries were engaged, and change except to order forward one section of Easton's battery. Jackson's regiment was distinguishnd their shells fell short. In the mean time, Easton's battery was brought into position on the sid
by a general order, and the names of the authors of the calumny made known to me and my brigade, to enable us to call them to account for their false representations. Very respectfully, A. Schimmelfennig, Brig.-General, Commanding First Brigade, Third Division. Letter from Major Frueauff. headquarters of one hundred and Fifty-Third regiment, Pa. Vols., camp near Brook Station, Virginia, May 16, 1863. Colonel Samuel Yohe, Provost-Marshal of Twenty-third Congressional District, Easton, Pa.: Colonel: Inasmuch as you are the power appointed to watch over the interests of the Government at home, and to sustain the army in the field, both by sending men forward, and by protecting those in the same from the slanders of traitors and the lying tongues of misnamed friends, I take the liberty of sending you a truthful account of the doings of the One Hundred and Fifty-third regiment, Pennsylvania volunteers, during the unsuccessful reconnoissance across the Rappahanock.
