Tow in la come Lebanon april 10,1861. Towards the close of the last Cen Tury Northumberland and the Scot Tish Border were terribly infested by those to the buc Oolie mind particularly obnoxious specimens of the Genus thief known As a Erie verse or a lifters of cattle. Almost All the rascals who followed this not a lucrative profession trusted chiefly to Mere brute Force to carry out successfully their nefarious schemes. There was however one exception to this Rule to be found in the person of a celebrated free Boot or known As a Dickey of Kingswood. This worthy openly expressed his disapprobation of his rivals vulgar Mode of following their professions and repeatedly boasted that he could achieve twice As much by his cunning As they could by their brute was this assertion of his Mere empty boasting far from it. In a few years time Dickey a name became the terror of the country Side. No Farmer Felt secure when to red to rest at night that his cattle might not have vanished before morning. So cleverly moreover were Dickey a enterprises conducted that no Man could Ever succeed in making Persona acquaintance with him. He openly set Justice at Defiance and laughed at the futile efforts of the Law to punish him. Perhaps however the Best Way to illustrate the adroitness and Good Luck which characterized All Dickey a proceedings will be for Ine to relate the Sto try of one of his exploits. Is appears then that during the course of his peregrinations through Northumberland one Fine afternoon Dickey a Eye were Glado Ned b3t the sight of a pair of Fine oxen which were quietly grazing in a Field near Benton Burn a Village Distant three Miles from Newcastle. Determined to possess them Dickey hung about the place until Nightfall watched where the animals were driven to and Bis usual Good Fortune assisting him speedily secured his prize. He also contrived by the exercise of his accustomed cunning to leave such traces behind him As made the owner of the oxen certain that the fre Booter had made off towards the Tweed. Thither he proceeded in hot haste. In the interim however Dickey had lost no time in a making tracks towards the West country and so cup editors were his movements that in a Short time he reached Lan meeting Dickey de a next merry parted. The old Yarmer after his guests leave taking had been completed carefully went the rounds of his House locked doors and windows with All due precaution. He then As usual tied his Mare to her accustomed Post retired to bed and was soon lulled to sleep by the sound of his. Favorite grinding her Corn. So the night wore away. Presently As the first Gray streaks of Day began to appear or. Musgrave awoke and feeling very cold and Chilly look-e4around to see the cause. To his astonishment he found All the coverlets and blankets had been taken off his bed and had been spread upon the floor. I or what purpose ? thought or m Ivo was he the victim of to e v or n of some horrible night Marc or was to realty awake to Channa Illy his eyes glanced to the spot w l Gnu i Mare should h ave was not there she was gone stolen i during the night some daring thief had broken into the farm House had picked the look on die door of the bed room had spread the blankets Over the floor so that the hoofs of the Mare should make no noise and had thus triumphantly made off with his prize. Of course or Musgrave roused Bis household and commenced a vigorous search after the thief. It was useless. The despoiled bad left no traces behind him and so or. Musgrave was obliged to return Home disconsolate and to Content himself with venting curses neither few nor far Between upon the thief. In the meantime our Friend Dickey for his was the deed was comfortably mounted upon or. Mus Graves favorite Mare and was every moment increasing the distance Between her outraged owner and himself.

In with an old a firmer on horseback who being delighted with the appearance of the oxen forthwith purchased them. Dickey was of course rejoiced at getting rid so pleasantly of a charge which could not fail to be troublesome a nay possibly dangerous to him longer to retain. The Farmer moreover was mounted upon a splendid Mare which Dic toy with his Peculiar ideas on the subject of Mem and Teum at once resolved by fair Means or foul to secure. He therefore willingly accepted the Farmers hospitable invitation to accompany him to his House in order that they might a crack a bottle of wine in Honor of their bargain. Presently Dickey inquired of the Farmer if he would sell him his Mare a sell you my Mare 1�?T exclaimed his Host All aghast at his a sell you my Mare no thank Yon 1 Why there a not her equal in the whole a a i done to doubt it or. Must in ave responded Dickey a and from what i saw of her paces this morning in a quite of your opinion that there a not her equal within a Hundred Miles of us but since you will not sell her i can Only wish you Long life and Good health to enjoy this sentiment t was of course duly honoured in a bumper. A i Hope or. Musgrave a next observed Dickey a that you keep a close look out after your stable doors because now when that confounded Rascal Dickey of Kingswood is allowed to be at Liberty a Man cannot be sure but that any Fine morning he May find his stable a stable a a 1�?T chuckled the Farmer. A i think that Dickey of Kingswood would find it rather difficult to steal my Mare out of her a indeed where May her stable be situated inquired Dickey. A her stable god bless you sir a answered or. Musgrave a her stable is in my bed room. In a a Bachelor and so every night i fasten her to my bed Post. I have had a Manger put up in the room for Lier and no music is so pleasant to Ine As to hear her grinding her Corn All night by my Side. Diecy was astounded As Well he might be at such unheard of precautions but disguising astonishment he contented himself by simply expressing to the Farmer his Hearty approval of the Means he had adopted to secure the safety of Bis favorite. A i suppose you have a Good lock on your bed room door a was Dickey a next a Como with me and i will show you a replied the unsuspected Farmer. This wins of course just what Dickey wanted. He examined the lock carefully and soon satisfied himself that lie could pick it without much difficulty. He however declared to or Musgrave that it was a just the right sort of lock a fit could it have been bettor a in fact a it was quite amp a., again the to i no cup passed round and after draining a bumper to their Mare that by break of Day Dickey Felt himself secure Froni Pursuit. He bad directed his Steps to the eastward and while crossing Haltwhistle fell whom should he encounter but the veritable owner of the oxen he had stolen two or three Days before and just sold to or. Musgrave a Dickey knew Tho owner of the oxen Well butt luckily for the fre Booter that injured individual did not know him. He therefore accosted Dick Esq and enquired if be had seen any oxen in the course of Bis travels similar to it Ose be de i bet himself to Diuk As being in search of. Why to be sure i replied Dick Fields at Law Cost. Only i was i to i Stout Obj tie appearance. And Learned on inquiry from a the governors of the several states Are hereby requested forthwith to designate rendezvous for the drafted militia of said slates and to appoint commandants and it is important that the rendezvous should be few in number and located with a View to convenience of transportation. ,. J Lar do the governors of the respective states will cause an enrolment to be made forthwith by the assessors of the several counties or by any other officers to he appointed by Sueh governors of All Able bodied male citizens Between the Ages of 18 and 45 within the respective counties giving the name age and occupation of each together with remarks showing whether he is in the service of the United states &c., and in what capacity or any.

Will you sell her a after some hard bargaining terms were agreed upon the Purchase Money paid Down on the spot and Dickey and the Farmer separated the former to seek his stolen oxen actually from the very owner of the stolen Mare to was himself Riding whilst Dickey proceeded a where he the next Day the Farmer reached Lane Cost and of course at once recognized his oxen grazing in the Field. He forthwith Rode up to an elderly Man standing near whom to supposed to be the owner of the Field and exclaimed. A �?~1 say Friend those Are my oxen in your Field. Tiow May you have conic by them a a and ill bed do replied the other after taking a Long and astonished look at the animal in which his questioner was mounted a if that a not my Mare you Are Riding Huw May have come by her Pray a each of course described the person from whom they had respectively purchased the Mare and when he. Was done they discover that they had been a sold by a rogue of no common order. A u so laughable however did the joke appear even to those who had to a pay the Piper in the affairs that neither party could prevent breaking into a peal of merriment when the particulars were fully disclosed. It was now Clear that the Only Way to Settle the affair was for each party to take Back his own property. Or. Musgrave was of course overjoyed at the recovery of his favorite Mare and the Denton Burn Farmer being equally delighted at the recovery of his favorite oxen it fell out that Dickey was allowed to quietly pocket the Sale Money of both Mure and oxen. Whether Dickey ultimately came to an untimely end or whether he reformed his ways and died in his own bed history Zelloth not. Certain it is however that to this Day hib deeds Are a household words a in Many parts of Northumberland and the mention of his name among the peasantry is considered synonymous with Peak to cute $4 put Day for Mayle Wie Battles before Richmond.

The persons thus drafted shall assemble at the conf qty seat of their respective counties within five Days after the time of client importance to make it More tedious but it would be entirely incomplete without some of Serrations which will perhaps with what x have aired said give the attentive Reader a perfect idea of the general valor and endurance displayed by this Nuble army and the a doubled facts contained in which will make the heart of every a Pennsylvania beat High with Pride and pleasure by the glorious conduct of the reserves particularly of whom i know most our regiment although not apart of them being attached to them in place of Bayard a which now forms part of Bis brigade before closing Iny narrative i should however have stated that capt. Herron left us at the comp where me were stationed before our night March to this place to visit i he wagons and whilst there accidentally shot himself through the thigh and has gone Home leaving me in command of the Squadron which now forms the left of such of the regiment As Are Here assembled the four companies under Lieut. Col. Kew being now positively heard from Are Safe and at fortress Monroe and will be Here in a few Days. The loss in our regiment has bees variously stated in the newspapers and by some correspondents we have been completely Cut to pieces one cannot upon reflection blame these gentlemen much. They expose themselves As a general Rule to the greatest danger to obtain Clear and accurate information and often receive statements from persons who should know the fuels which they have every reason to believe True which nevertheless from some private motive of the author we utterly unfounded. They have not time to compare and collate accounts for their business is to give Early As Well As accurate information and they Ere us far As my personal no quid Aiice with them goes an honorable intelligent and very agreeable class of gentlemen. Of course there Are who take advantage of their position to give officers a reputation they in no Wise deserve. It does not do much harm. For if a newspaper reputation grows like the Gourd it Withers As fast where there is no real Merit to maintain it. The official reports arc terrible dampers on this kind of Fame. Its exact loss As i have taken some trouble to ascertain is As follows Viz 1st squud., co. A capt. Herron�?1 Man wounded 1 horse killed 4 horses wounded. 1st squad., co. Of capt. Weid Irinne i Corporal Bonnet missing probably captured 1 horse killed 1 horse missing. 2d squad., co. B., capt. Young�?2 men wounded and 1 disabled by a fall. 2d squad., co. M., capt dart�?-1 Man wounded 6 horses killed 3 horses wounded. 3d squad., co. A., capt. Tumble�?1 Man wounded 2 men missing 5 horses killed. 3d squad., co. Capt. Duncan�?5 me wounded 2 men missing a horses killed. Co. not squad one capt. Cir la a ugh 1 Man killed 2 men wounded s men of stingy 6 horses killed 6 horses wounded. Co. I., capt. Taylor detached As body guard of escort for Brig. Gen. Mccall�?1 Serg t killed 1 private wounded 2 corporals and 2 privates missing All probably dead or captured 7 horses killed. 2d. Lieut and battalion adjutant William m. Biddle of Carlisle wounded in the leg and Cap lured. Surgeon n. F. Marsh of hones Dale Wayne county captured. Total men. Commissioned officers�?1 wounded Atud captured i captured. Non officers and privates killed 27 wounded 12 missing 17. Horses. Killed 32 wounded 13 missing i the Losa in capt. Taylor s company was far More severe than that in any other company proportioned to the number of men actually engaged. Joe himself and a sergeant two corporals and Twenty men were All who were really on the Field general Mccall having directed the remainder to stay at a particular place ready for instant service whenever he should want them. Copt. Taylor Bim self did duty As on of his aids and the other men he used is orderlies of a carry messages or for any other purpose. It is facts like these which demonstrate the utter fearlessness which this gentleman who was the Taf get for Romany slanders during the Winter and Spring possessed As these men were with him throughout the Day Aud a loss of 6 out of 22 is a pretty heavy percentage especially whore there was net nor very Well could be any hand to baud fighting. The horse i lost was Ridden in the ranks against my wishes a Indre Fri of a stances by sergeant George pc. Host whom i had desired a a to stay with the wagons neither Man nor horse being fit for service the sergeant suffering from a severe diarrhoea horse foundered the night a efort. T was Obb ged at last when we formed Hue on Frida at de no fied to charge the enemy to give him a positive order to go to the rear and to leave his Home if he found he could not get along better Wilbou him of which i had Little doubt and so it proved. He is a Brave and reliable Man and an excellent non commissioned officer Brit like All tie Hesse i Ever knew and i have known Many stubborn and obstinate at times. The fact is mine was not the Only missing horse but the other companies except Herron s and mine bad opportunities to make up their losses of we Leif they took advantage. We had no such Good Luck in fact the Only trophy i have is a sword Bayonet picked up and Given to me by a member of co. 32., and which is a splendid weapon for a hand to band fight. It will be some time before the official reports from the Penn. Reserves will give their Correct loss but from some facts i am about to state it must be frightful. In a conversation with or Meredith Clymer of Philadelphia who is a division surgeon of the reserves and of Conree has Many Good opportunities of knowing which took place at dinner at Falmouth about the Ali die of j use the strength of the reserves became the subject of debate. I fixed it at 12,000, without counting oar regiment or its own Regini Tefft of cavalry col. Now gen Bayard a which Wai detached. He told me i was Thuch mistaken that their ranks were much thinned by disease and discharge and if gen. Mccall could place 10,000 effective men under Mcclellan s command he would be doing Well. On thursday and Friday the reserves Bora the Brant of the fighting together with the other troops on their right All being under the command of gen. Fitz John Porter. How Many there were or How composed i do not know. Some were from new York and some from Massachusetts. Although opposed to1 at least twice their number their loss on thursday was not comparatively speaking great they were generally protected. Ii the naturally Strong position held a them by breastworks in the form of Rifle pits and Battis and in some places by regular entrenchments although i did not see these last mentioned myself. Of course these afforded Little Protection from artillery but against musketry they answered Well. On Friday the ease was different. Their position was a Good one and in some cases protected by Woods but for the most part their lines stretched through open Fields exposed to the fire of All arms except the Protection they would get by laying Down. The Only idea i have of the numbers brought against them is formed in this Way. A Richmond paper of saturday which As taken from a dead body stated that thei it Force was sixty five thousand men. Col. Childs in mentioning this to me and his opportunities of obtain this kind of information were at that time very Good said that he could not in a a by estimate he bad bees Able to make rate gen. Porter s Force As More than 25,000 effective men but it might possibly run As High As 28,000, dependent on the number of stragglers and absentees who had come in on Friday morning. You must estimate for yourself the probable number of the reserves when they went into action on Friday. opinion is that they had about 8,000 effective men. No one will Cvet certainly know As the morning reports were merely and approach to the truth. Their loss during the action is yet equally Uncertain but an approximation to it May be arrived at by gleaning the letters of correspondents of the different regiments and by isolated facts like these. I was at capt chows the division commissary on sunday morning when the provision returns of the filth and 8th regiments were brought in and his brother showed them to me. He told me that on the morning of the 25th of june the 8th Drew rations for 716 men. Their provision return for the 29th of june was for 450 men and was drawn for More than they really had id expectation of stragglers coming in. The 11th Reg t reserves Drew for 745 men on the morning of the 25th. The Piso vision return which i saw also on the 29th of june asked for 110 rations and this number poor by Dame told me was at a later period of the. Pany within my View or rather hearing for the Woods prevented me from actually seeing the contest Between them and the rebels. By one7 account they had 89 men lift All told / by another 240, the latter being probably nearest to the truth. I could give you other reports Boft they Are even More vague and unsatisfactory than a Bis last i have seen a great Many of the officers and men of the reserves who Are personally known to me for years. From the various reasons assigned by them for their rout. X mention these As among the most probable. The whole of the men were angry and dissatisfied at being withdrawn from the Strong position they a amp a held so successfully at Beaver dam Creek and therefore cot in to Best state of mind to renew Nihof fight against As great or greater Odds in a open position. The regiments posted on the right of Ibe reserves state that they would not have fled but maintained the contest As rigorously throughout As they did in the beginning had not the in a ctr on their fight re Tyd Ira Coly through their a ties a and thus broke it. The Meo were much fatigued having marched with a cd Psi onal halts from about of Friday they then rested till the enemy advanced. Some of the officers behaved very badly which is the surest Way to bring on a panic. Col. Harvey for instance As i heard the Story threw1 away his sword and hid himself behind a log. It was All some of Bis officers could do to prevent is of a a of froth shooting him. At All events general Mcclellan requested him to resign which redid on wednesday the 2d inst the m in were poorly fed and suffered much from want of water a the former on account of the confusion amongst the trains / the Lotter owing to its Scarcity in a drinkable condition. Their muskets became very dirty nearly All firing sixty rounds and some Over a Hundred. One Captain told me his me had sixty rounds in their Cartridge boxes and sixty in their Knapsacks and few men had Over Twenty left after the action was Over. He said that More than a dozen bad come to him Dur Fig the fight to get their balls rammed Home which had stuck in the barrel. Lastly they were overwhelmed with numbers. Those who saw or Beard the fire of the opposing lines and of Louise could form a tolerably accurate idea of their relative numbers did not wonder to Banc they finally gave Way but that Tbs a held out so Long it is said that with their stragglers nearly All in they no tuber about 5�?T,000. This tells the Story of their desperate resistance better than words can do it. All Honor to this glorious and valiant corps and let Pennsylvania write it among her archives that her sons during this bloody week made even disaster a Triumph and their final de. Feat purchased by the rebels at the fail Cost of their own number in dead and wounded and this by their own word As to the overwhelming numbers of the ene amp a. I do not believe that the or whole Force greatly exceeds ours. No one except to a so who ought to know has any accurate idea of our number and the knowledge of their number is for like reasons equally imperfect. Still almost an intelligent Ufano can make an estimate which shall not be very wide of the Mark in either Case. If a therefore the two armies met in pitched Battle which has not yet happened but x think Wilf before a very great while a either the one nor the other would have such a superiority in numbers As to make that fact a decisive element of the result. Such has not been the nature of the late contests. Gen. Mcclellan in expectation of reinforcements which never arrived stretched i right Wing with the White House on the a amp Monkey River a his base of operations so far that it was Bis weak Point. It never was in any immediate danger of ser oils disaster for a corps d Armee however Long its line or however difficult its communications is not to be picked up and pocketed like an infantry picket or scouting party of cavalry. In the meantime the main body of Bis forces in the Centre and left mpg were gradually melting away by . The abominable water of the swamps and the neighbouring country with the Miasma constantly arising from them was decimating the array. Even we on the right Wing we re beginning to suffer in which part it the country a Good Well is Here and there to by a found but a Spring of wholesome water never. At least i never saw one an to search for it was always my earliest care when we baited for any time. A change of position became a matter of necessity and the preparations for it were to Well made that the Hess at. The White House of the immense Quantity of stores and material of.
