rtinsburg. Oh, that our Almighty Father, who rules all things, would interpose and give us peace, even now when all seem ready for war! He alone can do it. June 24, 1861. We have been in Winchester for the last two days, at Dr. S's. General Johnston's army encamped at The Lick. Some Southern regiments encamped near Winchester. The army at Manassas said to be strongly reinforced. Measles prevailing there, and near Winchester, among the troops. There has been a slight skirmish in Hampshire, on New Creek, and another at Vienna, in Fairfax County. We repulsed the enemy at both places. Captain Kemper, of Alexandria, led our men in the latter fight, and is much extolled for his dexterity and bravery. July 1, 1861. A rumour of a skirmish, in which the Messrs. Ashby were engaged, and that Richard Ashby was severely wounded. I trust it may not be true. July 3, 1861. A real fight has occurred near Williamsport, but on the Virginia side of the Potomac. General Cadwal
December 11. Two companies of infantry, under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Rhodes, and two companies of cavalry, under command of Major J. J. Mudd, had a skirmish with the rebels near Bertrand, Missouri, to-day, losing one man. They took sixteen prisoners and a number of horses and fire-arms.--Missouri Democrat, December 12. In the Legislature of Western Virginia, in session at Wheeling, to-day, Mr. Carksadon, of Hampshire, introduced a resolution to prohibit any person engaged in the rebellion from over holding office in the State. Mr. Snider, of Monongahela, introduced a resolution modifying those parts of the code which prohibit writing or speaking against slavery, so as to make them conform to the spirit and genius of the National institutions. The Eleventh Michigan infantry, twelve hundred strong, commanded by Col. Wm. J. May, arrived at Jeffersonville, and were at once despatched to Bardstown, Ky. They are a fine body of men, and will doubtless do good service

t of those who began it. These declarations found a cordial response in the hearts of the loyal millions. In that message the President urged the House of Representatives to concur with the Senate in adopting a Thirteenth Amendment of the National Constitution, for prohibiting slavery in the Republic forever. The Senate had adopted it April 8, 1864. at the preceding session by the strong vote of thirty-eight to six. The following was the vote: yeas.--Maine--Fessenden, Morrill; Yew Hampshire, Clark, Hall; Massachusetts--Sumner, Wilson; Rhode Island--Anthony, Sprague; Connecticut--Dixon, Foster; Vermont--Collamer, Foot: New York, Harris, Morgan; New Jersey, Tenyck; Pennsylvania--Cowan; Maryland, Reverdy Johnson; West Virginia--Van Winkle, Willey; Ohio--Sherman, Wade; Indiana--Lane; Illinois--Trumbull; Missouri--Brown, Henderson; Michiyan--Chandler, Howard; Iowa--Grimes, Harlan; Wisconsin--Doolittle, Howe; Minnesota--Ramsay, Wilkinson; Kansas--Lane, Pomeroy; Oregon--Harding, Nes
rted him coldly because of the platform; while the intense pro-Slavery section of the party did not support him at all-distrusting, not him, but the influences which, they apprehended, might guide his councils. The Free soil Democracy, who yet maintained a National organization on the basis of open and thorough hostility to Slavery Extension and all pro-Slavery compromises, held their nominating Convention at Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, on the 11th of August; presented John P. Hale, of New Hampshire, for President, and George W. Julian, of Indiana, for Vice-President; and, though they carried no State, they polled a far stronger vote than they would or could have done but for the Whig platform aforesaid; and they made their gain wholly at the expense of Gen. Scott. When the polls were closed and the result made manifest, it appeared that he had carried only the States of Massachusetts, Vermont, Kentucky, and Tennessee--four in all, choosing 42 Electors; while Gen. Pierce had carried
ether Virginia would assist Carolina in such an issue. Mr. Garnett had clearly and truly foreseen that Western Virginia must necessarily constitute a formidable obstacle to the triumph of Secession. The forty-two counties which now compose the State of West Virginia, had, in 1860, a free population of 349,642, with only 12,771 slaves, or but one slave to nearly thirty white persons; and even this small number of slaves were, in good part, held in the counties of Greenbrier, Monroe and Hampshire, lying on the southern verge of the new State, and, for the most part, adhering to old Virginia in the struggle for Disunion. In the nature of things, this people were not, and could not be, disposed to divide the Republic, and place themselves on the most exposed and defenseless frontier of a far smaller and weaker nation, in the interest, and for the supposed benefit, of human Slavery. And yet this enormous sacrifice was required of them by the slaveholding conspiracy, which, since it

Time beating, And the Old Flag waving high! And down from the mountain gorges, And up from woodlands low, Mustering for Liberty's conflict-- Eighty-five years ago! Out of the streets of Lexington I see the red-coats wheel; And, back from the lines of Bunker, Where Continentals kneel And pray, with their iron musketry, I see the red-coats reel; And, reddening all the greensward, I mark the life-blood flow From the bosom of martyred Warren-- Eighty-five years ago! Hearken to Stark, of Hampshire: “Ho, comrades all!” quoth he-- “King George's Hessian hirelings On yonder plains ye see! We'll beat them, boys! or Mary Stark A widow this night shall be!” And then, like a clap of thunder, He broke upon the foe, And he won the battle of Bennington-- Eighty-five years ago! Down from the wild Green Mountains Our fearless eagle swooped; Down on Ticonderoga Bold Ethan Allen stooped, And the royal red-cross banner Beneath his challenge drooped! And the stout old border fortress He ga
myself, I should have had nothing to do officially with either accepting or refusing them as passengers. (Hear, hear.) But I should have offered my advice most strenuously to Captain Moir that he would have been subjected to a prosecution if he should refuse to take them. But I hold myself personally responsible for every thing that was done. (Cheers.) If what was done was wrong I am willing to bear it. (Cheers.) If what was done was right, he and I acted together. (Loud applause.) The Hampshire Advertiser says, That I stepped out of my proper position, and presumed to make myself a diplomatic character --that I was merely a deliverer of her Majesty's letters. (Oh.) Well, I am not ashamed to be a deliverer of her Majesty's letters. (Much applause, and cries of Well done. ) I have not shirked my duty to my country. I have served twenty-eight years under the pennant in my own service, and I am too old to undergo the expense of commanding a ship, even if I had the interest to get t
174. the soldier's Hymn. tune--Old Hundred. O God of our fathers, on the earth, Girt for the fight, Thy servants stand; Oh, bless us, ere the trumpet sound, With strength from Thy almighty hand. The cloud of war comes from the South; The battle-storm bursts o'er our heads; Our starry flag a rainbow bright, A glory round our pathway sheds. Our fathers' spirits watch that flag, They left to us without a stain; We take their motto in our hearts-- “To die for Liberty is gain.” And when victorious we return, Oh, may those folds be pure and free, As when our father Washington Gave us our Flag and Liberty. Thou God of Battles, hear our prayer! From Western plains to Eastern coasts, Strong in Thy blessing forth we march,-- Our trust is in the Lord of Hosts. --Hampshire (Mass.) Gazette, June
red in obedience; And wavering for a moment in allegiance, The old Dominion rushed into the treason, An awful pause! Half-terror, half in wonder, The moon glared blue; the very ocean lay Dumb and in dread; the grave-clothes stirred their clay; Then broke from Charleston hay the first deep peal of thunder! O Massachusetts! hallowed be for aye, Thy sturdy heart that never throbbed in vain! And be the forests and the streams of Maine Blessed forever! terrible and gaunt The mountaineers of Hampshire and Vermont Poured from their eyries, half-way in the sky, Down where Long Island Sound lifts up its calm blue eye. The empires of York and Penn were all aflame; There was no hamlet where the drum beat not, No fireside, but desperate and hot, Some son or father felt the glow of shame, And buckled on his sword and breathed his mother's name. The prairies rang — Ohio raised her hand With Illinois, to wipe away the guilt, The sword should drip in carnage to the hilt, And every roof-thatch be
