EDITORIAL. (Criticizing remarks of the Chronicle concerning democratic meeting last Saturday.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR. Signed Orange MEREDITH, undated. "The Grave Robber Hobby"... On the 26th of Dec. 1862, the body of the deceased soldier, F. C. HAMLET, was brought home for burial. The day afterwards, Mrs. HAMLET, the widow of the deceased, requested J. C. DILLE, Esq., and myself to open the coffin. But as the body was to be buried the next day, we thought it best to defer the opening of the coffin until that day. On the day the deceased was buried, the widow of F. C. Hamlet requested Mr. Henry WINBIGLER to superintend the opening of the coffin. He proceeded to comply with her request, when Mr. Henry HAMLET stepped forward and declared that the coffin shold not be opened, that if it was, his team should not convey the body to the grave and that he would shoot the first six men that attempted to open the coffin. It was conveyed to the place of burial unopened and placed in the tomb. Some three weeks afterward the widow of the deceased grew suspicious, and she requested four men to come secretly, without the knowledge of Henry Hamlet, and take up the body of her deceased husband, that she might be satisfied that all was right. The gentlemen that she selected for that purpose, are Asa COPLEN, Stanford BEVERLY, Ellis STROSNIDER and Wm. HAMLET. But Henry Hamlet hearing of the arrangement, again flew into a passion, declared that the body of the deceased soldier was his property, and that the grave should not be opened. All the se circumstances naturally aroused great suspicions, and the public became greatly excited. In order to allay such excitement, the people of the neighborhood decided that, without intending any indignity whatever, to the dead soldier, the grave ought to be opened and the matter set at rest. Accordingly on the 18th of Feb. 1863, a delegation of citizens including democrats, republicans and abolitionists proceeded to the grave and opened the grave and the coffin sufficiently to satisfy themselves that the dead soldier had been really brought home, according to the wish he expressed before he died. This done, the coffin and the grave were properly reclosed, and the assemblage quietly retired to their homes. If it had not been for the unjust and unreasonable opposition of Henry Hamlet, the affair never would have happened. When at the grave, a vote was taken whether the tomb should be opened or not - there was no dissenting voice but that of Henry Hamlet. The widow of the deceased was present and made no objection. If she had done so, the tomb would not have been opened. The coffin was not split open with an axe, and it was opened by a republican...

Fulton Masonic Lodge No. 79, to meet Wednesday, M. R. SMITH, Secy.
. . . . a most lamentable affair took place near Harrison, Ohio, on Tuesday night, and one that will cause mourning in many a household in Indiana. The Regiment of Col. SHRYOCK was at Harrison when, at about 10 oclock at night, a courier, pale and terror stricken, dashed in with word that (John) MORGAN had been headed off and was returning, desolating the country with fire and sword. Col. Shryock's regiment was paraded and marched out. In the darkness the head of the column halted. The order to halt was not heard in the rear, and the platoon soon closed enmasse. All was confusion at once.

ROCHESTER SENTINEL - Saturday, December 12, 1863
EDITORIAL. "A Suggestion" Would it not be well for our corporation
"Dads" to take some measures in relation to the cattle and hogs that
throng the streets of Rochester roaming up and down seeking what they may
devour. Not a farmer comes to town with a load of grain or vegetables but what,
the instant his back is turned the cows make a common onslaught on the contents
of his wagon, abstracting therefrom, hay, corn and everything else eatable. What
falls overboard, the hogs always stand ready to appropriate. Now this is fun for
the cows, but not for our country friends who daily denounce such
"doings" in terms much more emphatic than pious. The other day we
heard a man swear that, "with a little more practice the cows would steal a
load of corn before a man could drive through town with it on a fast trot."
The evil should be remedied. The hogs and cows should be kept out of the street (or out of main street), during the fall and winter months.
We learn from Lieut. McAFEE he has now 22 recruits, principally from Henry twp. This twp will probably raise her quota without recourse to a draft; and the citizens of the other twps should recollect that the 5th of Jan., the day the draft is to take place, is fast approaching.
Col. K. G. SHRYOCK, of this place, has been appointed Provost Marshal of this District, in place of Wm. Wirt WALLACE, relieved.
Vantrump's School House DEBATE, next Thursday. Resolved, that the laws of nature are the only laws given by God to man.

LETTER FROM THE 26th IND. VOLUNTEERS. Prairie Grove, 10 miles from
Fayetteville, Ark., Dec 10, 1862. Kind Uncle:
The gallant 26th fought like heroes, and suffered severely. Nineteen were wounded and two killed in our company. William J. CANNON and William H. HOOVER were killed dead on the field; Michael BARNETT and Henry HAZEN were mortally wounded.... A woman came in yesterday to see if she could find any of her kindred among the killed. She found her father, her brother, and her husband, all killed! O, she just tore around all day. One of our boys found his brother killed on the field! The brother was a secesh, and our soldier buried him, and never shed a tear!
O, it looks horrible to see the dead, piled up like wood! They begin to smell rather strong, and the men they sent back to bury them are going to join our army, and let them lie there and rot! The hogs are eating many of them up.... Yours truly,
M. A. COLLINS. P. B. WEVER, Esq.
Lieut. David MOW will leave for his Regiment (the 87th Ind. Volunteers) on Tuesday, Jan 20, 1863, and will take light parcels, letters &c., which friends may desire to send to members of the Regiment. Articles may be left at this office until Saturday evening, the 17th inst.

DIED. At his residence in New Castle township, on Monday morning, January
12th, 1863, of Typhoid Fever, John C. DILLE, aged 61 years.
Father Dille was born, February 9th, 1802, in Washington county, Pennsylvania, and in his youth emigrated to Richland county, Ohio, where he resided until 1848, when he again emigrated to Indiana and settled in this county,
He leaves a large family of small children, a dearly loved companion, and relatives and friends to mourn his loss. Father Dille will be missed by his neighbors as a mechanic, and as an officer in his councils among friends and in the church. The church below has lost one of its most faithful members, but the church above has added age to the millions already there.
On Tuesday, his remains were followed to the grave by a large concourse of friends, and the funeral services were attended to by Elder Moses MEREDITH, at the Yellow Creek Church. Rochester, Jan 15, 1863. (From the Sentinel)

Editor Chronicle: I send you a copy of our last Muster Roll, the publication of which will be a gratification to our friends. The changes which have occurred in our roll during the past year, are a sufficient comment upon the hardships, which we have endured. One year ago we had discharged none; the list of deaths was just commenced. Now the lists of dead and discharged include near half the names of the original roll. Since our last muster the name of Theodore W. STRINGHAM has been added to the list of dead. He died on board the Steamer Sunshine, near St. Charles, Ark., on the night of Jan 19th, after an illness of a few hours; and was buried the following day near the common grave of the unfortunate crew of the Mound City...
I hear oi a document of considerable interest which has recently been gotten up here-- addressed to the Democracy of Indiana-- praying them to stay their mad career. The paper is signed by Gens. GERMAN, HOVEY and McGINNIS, Cols. SLACK, McLANE and others, who were of, and acted with the former Democracy of our State .... Our old friend Dr. BRACKETT has been very ill of late-but bids fair to recover. For a time we despaired of him. He will go North as soon as able to travel .... Yours, B. A. GROVER.

THE CORPSE OF A UNION SOLDIER
DISINTERRED BY THE COPPERHEADS!
On Wednesday of last week was perpetrated, in our county, one of the most disgraceful acts which it has ever been our lot to record, and which will brand the guilty participants with infamy through their whole future lives.
Our readers will remember the announcement in our columns, a few months since, of the death of our esteemed fellow citizen F. C. HAMLET, a soldier in the 29th Indnana Volunteers. About three months after his death, his body was sent home for burial among his friends, in accordance with his last wish, and was duly interred in a graveyard not far distant from his late residence, in New Castle Township. So long a time having elapsed since his death, the body was, of course, much decayed, especially as it was impossible for his son, who is still a member of the 29th, to obtain an air-tight coffin immediately, and for these reasons, it was deemed injudicious to open the coffin when it arrived here '
It was but a short time until some cowardly copperhead started the story that Mr. Hamlet's body had not been brought home, but that the coffin contained arms with which the Abolitionists were about to commence war upon the innocent and unsuspecting Democrats. With eyes starting from their sockets, these brave men retailed the silly falsehood; and, absurd as the stupid invention seemed to men of sense, the whole hungry pack of cowardly New Castle hyenas swallowed it with delight, and threatened to disinter the coffin.-- Few, however, deemed it possible that the wretches would carry out their threats.- It seemed scarcely possible that things could be found in the form of men, that would desecrate the grave of a neighbor, who had fallen in the service of his country. But partisan cowardice and hate reach far enough to insult even the dead!
Accordingly, on Wednesday of last week, a party of some 30 or 40 of the New Castle Copperheads, armed with rifles, shot-guns, revolvers, &c., proceeded to the grave, and having stationed their pickets, to prevent interruption, commenced their infamous work.
In the mean time, the wife of the deceased, and Mr. Henry HAMLET, a brother, having arrived, protested against the proceedings, but in vain. The coffin was soon reached, and taken from the grave. The hyenas then proceeded to open it, but finding the lid well secured, they split it off with an ax, and found--- the body of the dead soldier! Their devilish malignity being gratified, they replaced the coffin in the grave, and again filled it with earth.
We have been unable to obtain a list of the names of all the perpetrators of this outrage, as the leaders threatened to kill any person who should give the names of those engaged in it, to Mr. Hamlet. The following are the names as far as furnished us, for our ROLL OF INFAMY:
Orange MEREDITH, George EMMONS, B. F. MONTGOMERY, Wash. HORN, Israel DILLEY, George BAXTER, Alex. BARRETT, James COPLEN, James NELLENS, Robert COPLEN, Israel DEBOLT, Ellis STROSNYDER, Peter SANNS, Moses NELLENS, Martin DUETT.
Let the poor soldier, who may fall in battle or by disease, far away from home and friends, be buried among strangers, for there his bones may rest undisturbed, no vandal will desecrate his grave, it remains for the freedom hating poltroons at home, to commit such fiendish sacrilege.
We are glad to say that a portion of the so-called Democracy denounce this outrage, though many of them approve it.
Dr. Vernon GOULD arrived at home last Friday, from the 87th Regiment Ind Vols. We have not learned whether he purposes returning or not.
The Circuit Court commenced its session last Monday, Judge OSBORN presiding, and adjourned yesterday morning. William OSGOOD, Esq, of the Sentinel, was admitted to the bar.
We have been requested to state that the report that a daughter of Mr. Jehu CARR, of this place, has the small pox, is false. Physicians say it is the rash.
A fellow, named LEACH, of Akron, in this county has been arrested for the
second time, and taken to Indianapolis, where we understand he will be tried by
court martial. It is said that he has deserted not less than three times, once
in Ohio and twice in this State. If convicted, his position is anything but

THE GRAVE ROBBERS. We are pleased to see that the hyenas and jackals who
recently robbed the grave of Mr. F. C. HAMLET, have a little human feeling left,
enough to make them feel the deep and damning disgrace they have brolt upon
themselves by their sacrilegious violation of a soldier's grave. They have
obtained notoriety, which if it has not made them famous, has rendered them
The Toledo Blade, Chicago Tribune, St. Joseph Valley Register, Mishawaka Enterprise, Peru Republican, Logansport Journal, Marshall County Republican, LaPorte Herald, and Nashville (Tenn.) Union, have each given them a fitting notice, and their names are just at present about as widely known as they can desire, especially in connection with so disgraceful an outrage.
Mr. Peter SANNS comes out in a card in the Sentinel of the 7th inst., claiming that Henry HAMLET and the widow of F. C. HAMLET, desired him to be present, and intimates that he would like to have Henry Hamlet pay him for assisting at the fiendish job. All that we have to say of this is, that Mrs. Hamlet assures us, she never said a word to him on the subject, and we are also informed that all Henry Hamlet said to him was, that he hoped since they had opened the grave, they would close it again before they left. Until we have further evidence we beg leave to believe just which story we see fit.
DIED. At Helena, Ark., on the 20th day of February, 1863, Dr. Charles BRACKETT, of Fulton county, Indiana, and at the time of his decease, Surgeon in the 9th Illinois Volunteer Cavalry....
Dr. Brackett was born at Cherry Valley, Otsego county, New York, June 18th, 1825; received a good academic education, studied medicine, and in 1845, at the age of 20 years, entered upon the duties of his profession, in Fulton county, which thenceforward continued to be his home.
.... very soon after the assault upon Fort Sumter, he tendered his services to Gov. MORTON, offering to serve in the Union army, in whatsoever capacity he could be most useful, and in August, 1861, he was appointed Assistant Surgeon in the 1st Regiment of Indiana Cavalry.
He immediately joined the regiment, then stationed in Missouri, and continued faithfully to discharge his duties, till Oct 4th, 1861, when he came home for a few weeks, and before returning, received Feb 4th, 1862, the appointment of Surgeon in the 9th Regiment of Illinois Volunteer Cavalry. Attached to this new command, he continued in the service until the time of his death, Feb 20th, 1863, having been absent from his post, only a short time in the fall of 1862, when ill health compelled him to seek repose at home.
.... He was an attentive, affectionate husband, a faithful and kind parent....

ROCHESTER CHRONICLE - Thursday, June 18, 1863
REBELLION IN NEWCASTLE. We are sorry to chronicle the disgraceful fact, that
the insane teachings of the Copperhead leaders has resulted in open resistance
to the laws in New Castle township. Capt. TRUSLOW, the Enrollment Commissioner,
for this county, under the Conscription Law, appointed JOHN MOW, a returned
soldier, and son of JOHN S. MOW, Esq., as his assistant to enroll that township.
Mr. Mow commenced his duties on Tuesday of last week, and found no serious
difficulty until Thursday evening, when he was assaulted by two persons, who
demanded his books, He refused to give them up, whereupon they seized hold of
him, and throwing him to the ground, succeeded in taking the books from him.
They then told him that they had determined that the township should not be
enrolled, and if he attempted to proceed with his duties, they would kill him
and burn his father's property, and that any man who would attempt to enroll
that township, would do so at the peril of his life. They then gave a whistle
which was promptly answered, and a large number of pistol shots were fired, from
parties concealed in the brush.
The facts were reported to Capt. Truslow on Friday morning, and he immediately left for LaPorte to lay them before Provost Marshal WALLACE, who telegraphed to Indianapolis for assistance, and on Monday evening, Provost Marshal Wallace and Captain FARQUHAR arrived here, who were followed on Tuesday, by a company of the 71st Ind Vol., in command of Capt. Mc----. The Union citizens of this village invited the soldiers to their several homes, and gave them their dinners, and after -resting until 5 oclock p.m., they loaded their pieces with ball cartridges, and took up their march for Bloomingsburg. At 9 oclock on Tuesday evening, all was "quiet on the Tippecanoe."
We have no idea that the cowardly dogs who talk in school houses and fence corners of fighting the United States, will attempt to resist the force sent out to see the laws executed. Their courageous hearts are strong enough to attack dead soldiers, but they will be exceedingly careful how they expose their worthless hides to Uncle Sam's Minnie balls.
ANOTHER OF THE GRAVE ROBBERS. We have recently learned, that one Abner WOODS, of Kosciusko county, was engaged in the cowardly and hyena-like desecration of the grave of F. C. HAMLET. This Woods is known as a preacher of the Christian Church, and we mention the fact to state that he is repudiated by the church, wherever he is known best....
MR. EDITOR:- We take this method to inform the public that, through the
influence of A. E. BABCOCK, Mr. David MOW and Mr. George McGUIRE, came together,
with their witnesses, at the house of A. CRIST, on Thursday, the 4th inst., at
10 oclock a.m., for the purpose of settling a difficulty that existed between
them, and that had been extensively made public by their cards in the Rochester
Chronicle and Rochester Sentinel, and caused the following request, in writing,
to be sent by D. MOW to G. McGUIRE, Viz:
Richland Tp., Fulton Co., Ind., June 4th, 1863. Mr. George McGUIRE:-- I see by your card in the Sentinel, that you denied facts that I asserted, which I stand ready to prove, and also you challenged me to settle it in any way I chose. I ask of you to meet me on Thursday, the 4th of this month, at 2 oclock, in the road and grove near Lewis OSBORN'S: if you are a man of honor you will meet me. Bring your friends with you. David MOW. I also ask of you to answer this note by the bearer. D. MOW.
Mr. McGuire accepted the note in the following language, viz: June 2d. MOW:- I received your note on last evening, in which you asked me to meet you in the road near Lewis OSBORN'S. I will be there at the time. George McGUIRE.
After coming together at the above named time, they selected Morris BLODGET and A. E. BABCOCK as referees, to hear the testimony, and give decision therefrom. The following witnesses were sworn and gave testimony, viz: A. H. CORP, M. REAMINSNIDER, S. O'BLENNIS, John OSBORN, A. H. MOW and S. HARRY.
After hearing the testimony we gave the following decision: That at the dismission of meeting at the Methodist Church, at or near Center School house, in Richland township, Fulton county, Indiana, on the 17th day of May past, Mr. D. Mow approached Mr. G. McGuire as a friend, shook hands with him, and after some inquiries and answers in reference to an emblem McGuire had on his shirt bosom, Mow snatched it off and stepped back. McGuire then and there demanded it; Mow refused to give to him. McGuire said that it belonged to his little girl, or that he had got it made for her. Mow then went to his wagon with his family, some fifty or sixty yards from where the badge was taken off; McGuire followed him and again requested Mow to (give) it up; Mow then said, he would give it up, if he would agree not to wear it again. McGuire said he would knuckle to no man, but did not think he would wear it again. He further stated that he did not wear it as a slur on the soldiers of our country. A. H. Mow then requested D. Mow to give it up; he then gave it to him. Morris BLODGET, A. E. BABCOCK.

Col. K. G. SHRYOCK. Col. Shryock arrived at home on Tuesday last, from an attempted visit to Chattanooga, whither he had started to aid our wounded in the late battle, as well as to secure the body of his son-in-law, Adjt. RYLAND. On his way, when 22 miles short of his destination, a band of guerillas attacked the train, robbed the passengers and paroled the soldiers, and marched the prisoners fome forty miles, when they were released. The Copperheads hereabouts had a great sport over the Colonel's misfortune; they rejoiced over it almost as much as though it had been a rebel victory.
DISAPPEARED. Mr. Joseph AULT, of this village, has mysteriously disappeared, and a great variety of rumors are in circulation as to his whereabouts. He went to Logansport, on the 3d inst., and remained there a day or two, since which time he has not been heard from. Grave suspicions were for a time entertained that he had been murdered and robbed, as he was known to have quite a sum of money in his possession. We believe it is now the general opinion that he has run away.
One day last week, Mr. William MILLER, one of our prompt cash paying subscribers, came into our office, with about two bushels of splendid Vandevere Pippins, in a sack, on his shoulder, which he deposited on the floor, and left, almost before we had time to express our thanks....

LOSSES OF CO. A, 26th IND. VOLS. The following are the extent of our
casualties in the 26th Indiana. There are but few really dangerous wounds, and
with few exceptions they will all recover.

TO THE PUBLIC. It is generally known, that Joseph AULT, of this village, has
left for parts unknown, not having been seen since the 5th of Oct., by his
friends. He left some $600 in my debt, besides owing quite a large amount to
other parties, leaving no property so far as has been discovered, of any amount,
and leaving his wife to the care of his and her friends.
His friends are as much surprised at his action as the public can be, and I make this statement that it may be generally known that he has wronged his own relatives as well as others, in order to relieve myself and his family from any feeling which may exist against us, in the minds of the community.
For my own part, I should be much pleased to see him come back, provided he comes back with money to pay his debts, and act like a man; if he cannot or will not do this I am not anxious for his return. Henry AULT. Oct 29, 1863.

He is anxious to get back to his regiment, in order to settle old scores with the rebels.

THE 87th IND AT THE BATTLE OF CHICKAMAUGA. Letter from Capt. LONG, Company F, 87th Indiana Vols, Chattanooga, Tennessee, October 21st, 1863. Dear Father and Mother.... We had scarcely fired our first volley, when James BABCOCK received a shot in his knee.... I heard another of my men say, "I am hit," looking around I saw it was Simon FREER. "Where are you shot?" I said. "In the foot.".... I returned to the head of my company, and had no more than got there when a tree top was cut off, by a cannon ball, above my head, falling on me and several others, but not hurting me, only covering me up with the leaves and smaller branches, but hurting Sergt. PUGH so badly as to compel. him to leave the field. The next man of my company who was hit was Sergt. CLAY in the right leg by a rifle ball just grazing it below the knee, but not bad enough to make him leave the field.... We made it so hot for them that they had to get up and leave. Here Sergt. CLAY received his second and third shots, one of them grazing under his right arm and the other hitting him on the left leg below the knee; but still he would not leave the field. Here was where Frank M. SMITH, of Co. D was instantly killed, the ball going through his head.... Robert McALEXANDER, of Company F, a detail as one of Col. VANDEVER'S escort, had his horse shot under him. When the fight was the hottest, I had to laugh to see Sergeants MYERS and CLAY, they being file closers, were in the rear of the lines; they would load, stoop down, pick out their man, grit their teeth and fire, then step back to their places, load and repeat the same over during the engagement.... During the fighting Col. GLEASON was right with us .... Major HAMMOND was every place along our lines, encouraging our men; also Adjutant RYLAND.... On came the rebels four lines deep, and during this time one after another of my men fell. Corp. J. L. McMAHAN was hit .... he was wounded in the right eye and wrist.. .. Now John HOUSE fell, a ball breaking his neck; then Corp. WELD was wounded. About this time Lieutenant BEEBER was shot through both legs, just above the knees. One after another fell, until ten of my men were killed and wounded; right there GOODRICH, FARRY, HOFFMAN, J. ROBBINS, RODGERS, Private CLAY, J. B. TAYLOR and about twenty paces to my left, fell Adjutant RYLAND. Still closer fell Captain HUGHS, of Company D.... Corp ROTH and Private STOTTLER were wounded.... Here Sergt. CLAY received his fourth wound through his right thigh. Sergeant MYERS and Adam REMINSCFINIDER carried him back out of danger.... Our wounded are getting along finely. Corp. WEBB died on the 18th.... Our sick are doing well. Isaac TOWNSEND is still down to the hospital doing as well as could be expected. My health is tolerably good. Jonas MYERS was just in here.... H. C. LONG.
Capt. LONG, of the 87th, arrived at home last Friday night. He is in good health and spirits.
We are pleased to learn that Dr. Vernon GOULD is improving in health, and it is hoped that he will soon be able to be about. He has had a serious time, but is gradually gaining in health.
OUR WOUNDED. We had the pleasure of a call, a day or two ago, from Sergt. C. W. CLAY, who was severely wounded at Chickamauga. He is rapidly improving and hopes to be able to again join his regiment before many weeks. Lieut. J. W. BEEBER is also improving. He has returned to Indianapolis. We learn that J. L. McMAHAN, who was severely wounded over the eye and in the right arm, is slowly improving.

CAMP OF THE 13th IND VOLS. Folly Island, N. C., Nov 3d, 1863. Editor Chronicle: .... there has been a great deal of sickness and ten men have died, including lst Lieut. SCOTT of Co. D, four men, members of Co. B, have:died; Sergt. John R. CASSADY, Corporals Levi CONSER and Wm. H. H. STEVENSON, and Private Robert WATSON.... Yours respectfully, R. S. MOW.
Sergt. Frank BROWN, of Company D, 87th Ind, arrived here last Saturday. He is
not looking very well, but we hope will rapidly improve now that he can enjoy
the comforts of home. We understand that he is authorized to enlist recruits for
the noble regiment of which he is a member. Capt. P. S. TROUTMAN, of Company E,
same regiment, has also been at home for a few days past, though we believe he
has returned to his regiment.
Sergeant BROWN brought us a line from Jerome CARPENTER, Comissary Sergeant of the 87th, in which he promises shortly to write us a letter for publication....
DIED. On Nov 8th, 1863, in hospital at Nashville, Tenn., of chronic Diarrhea, Isaac S. TOWNSEND, of Liberty Township, Fulton county. His body was brought home, and buried with the honors of war, on the 17th inst. He enlisted at the organization of the Company fifteen months ago, and has been present with it all the time up to a few weeks of his death, passing through all the hardships, battles and skirmishes the 87th has been in. At the time of the battle of Chickamauga, though a more fit subject for the hospital than a battle-field, and against the advice of his officers, he would go into the battle, and was one amongst the bravest to defend the flag of his country; escaping death on the horrid battle-field but to fall a victim of disease. He was a good soldier, always obedient to orders; was highly esteemed by all his company, who deeply feel his loss. His body now occupies an honored soldier's grave. To his parents, brothers, sisters and relatives, we would say, that it is a sad and gloomy thought to know that you will never meet him again upon earth; this we know is hard to bear, and God alone, who "tempers the wind to the shorn lamb," can impart comfort to the bruised and bleeding heart. Co. F, 87th Inf. In hospital, at Nashville, Tenn., on the 13th of November, 1863. A. E. McCARTER, of Co 3, 87th Reg Ind.

NARRATIVE OF JOURNEY DOWN THE MISSISSIPPI. By James MAXEY.... (quite lengthy) ....
RECRUITING IN FULTON COUNTY. The work of recruiting in this county is
progressing slowly. Lieut McAFEE, Sergt BROWN, Sergt HOOBER, Sergt BEEBER and
Sergt NEWHOUSE, aided by a number of our citizens, are making energetic efforts
to raise the requisite number so as to avoid the draft.
The second series of War Meetings is now being held, and strong hopes are entertained by those who ought to know, that the task will be accomplished.
Col. SHRYOCK spent some time making speeches, but has now gone to Washington. Capt. GROVER also gave his efficient aid, and B. LAWHEAD has been indefatigable in his efforts. It will be strange if all these gentlemen fail to induce 112 men to enter the country's service, especially when the way seems so near its termination.
Thos. J. HOLCOMB, of Green Oak, has our thanks for a splendid roll of butter weighing some four or five pounds. He is a whole-souled, generous Union man, and may he live to see a happy old age.
Our thanks are due to Capt. RADER, of the 26th Ind., for several late New Orleans papers. He is at home on a short furlough, and to await his recovery from the severe wound received by him in Louisiana.
Thomas SHELTON, who resides four miles from Rochester, on the Peru road, has taken out a license as a Tavern Keeper....
HOME ON FURLOUGH. James BARRETT, of Company F, 87th Indiana, is home on a
furlough of twenty days. We believe he has recently been detailed as a nurse in
one of the hospitals.
Last week, we did not mention a call from Sergt. HOOBER, of Company E, 87th. He is home for recruits....

The deceased joined the company in the summer of 1861, and participated in all the battles in which the 26th was engaged. His health failed soon after the siege of Vicksburg, since which time he had gradually failed, and was on his way home at the time of his death. He was a faithful soldier, a good son, and he will not soon be forgotten by his bereaved parents and numerous friends.

We are informed that a few nights since some rascals took Mrs. BRACKETT'S
horse from the stable, and after riding it most of the night, put it back in the
stable. This is not the first outrage of a similar character perpetrated upon
the property of Mrs. B. Last summer some sneaking miscreant robbed her orchard,
plundering all her choicest fruit trees, and recently, a number of her chickens
were stolen, and their heads left in the yard. Our language utterly fails, when
we attempt to express our opinion of such meanness. We know of nothing which
equals it in infamy, except the exploit of the New Castle Grave Robbers. Every
citizen of Fulton county who has any regard for the reputation of the community
in which he lives, should spare no pains to aid in ferreting out and bringing to
justice the cowardly and contemptible villains who will thus rob a defenseless

POEM. "Home" (By JOHN E. CATES, 87th Regt. Ind. Vols., Chattanooga,
Tenn., sent to the Rochester Sentinel):
Rome, is the sweetest thought
That lights the soldier's mind;
Could but the battles all be fought,
And Liberty's sun still shine.
Oh! his home and friends, how dear,
He feels the kindred ties;
But still he feels no coward fear,
Though he for his country dies.
He hopes and trusts and prays,
To meet his friends again;
But he must save his country first,
That Law and Peace may reign.
May God, in all his good,
Lend His helping hand,
And strengthen all our firmness,
To save our glorious land.
Oh, may both North and South,
Be bound in one Christian band,
And live as brethren in one house,
In a Christian, happy land.
Lord! Stop the maddened strife,
And give us grace to see
The worth of human life,
And Christian Liberty.

There are a great many sick in town and throughout the county. Lung fever appears to be the prevailing disease.

EDITORIAL. "Coming Down." In this weeks issue of his sheet, the editor of the Rochester Nigger Swill Tub Chronicle declines further controversy with the editor of the Sentinel, and he declines in terms which are certainly not very becoming to a (professed) minister of the Gospel. We do not believe that the very lowest denizen of the Five Points could use worse language than the editor of the Chronicle uses, when engaged in his favorite theme of abusing democrats. However, we cannot expect anything better from the editor of the Chronicle, who is nothing but a vile compound of skunk, black-snake, and turkey-buzzard, fished out of some abolition swamp-hole up north, and imported to Rochester to do the dirty work of the abolitionists, which dirty work he does do with all the zeal and fidelity of a thrice whipped spaniel.

The thief was mounted on a splendid looking animal and leading another with a halter, and was at the time of his arrest, leaving town with both horses as fast as possible. But the Deputy Sheriff of Allen county - the county in which the horses were stolen followed in his wake rather closely. The Deputy Sheriff with the assistance of some of the citizens of this place, overtook him just as he reached the outskirts of town. The thief's wrists were soon ornamented with a pair of steel handcuffs; and he was taken to Warsaw on the same day and from thence we suppose he was taken to Fort Wayne for safe keeping.

Mr. Richard ABBETT: Dear Sir: Your son, James Abbett, has for a short time been
a patient in my Wards, and it is my painful duty to write you of his death.
A Richmond prisoner, he suffered like hundreds of our brave boys from the effects of severe treatment, and was greatly reduced when he arrived here. ikli the kindness of friends failed to restore him to health, and God took him from this suffering, sorrowing world, to dwell with Him in heaven. For your dear boy had the sweet Christian hope of everlasting rest.
I talked with him before his death much upon this subject. He expressed a willingness to die, and trusted sweetly in his Savior. Oh, you have much to thank God for, even in your affliction. May He be with and comfort you.
James was buried in the Soldier's Cemetery - very nicely buried- among thousands of his fallen comrades. He died the 26th of May. I should have written before, but my duties have been very pressing.
Praying God to be with you in your affliction, I am in sincerity your friend, Helen M. VOOR.

COMMON PLEAS COURT This court has been in session for the last two or three days, Milo R. SMITH, Esq., presiding in the absence of Judge DYKEMAN. We believe no very important business is on the docket. Milo fills the Judge's seat very creditably.
Dr. ROBBINS informs that on Saturday 1st, the wife of Lieut. David MOW, of Richland township, gave birth to three daughters, weighing in the aggregate 16 pounds. At latest dates the mother and children were comfortable. We congratulate the Lieutenant on his new recruits for the infantry service.
We are pleased to announce that our friend Lieut. Jacob LEITER has arrived safely at home. His wound though severe is not as bad as at first reported. It is a bullet hole through his left ankle, but the bones are not so much injured, as to preclude the hope that he will retain the use of the foot. This is the second time the gallant Lieutenant has been wounded, but his heroic spirit shames the craven Copperhead crew who are ready to bow the neck to the yoke of Jeff. Davis, he is not yet ready to surrender.
E. R. POWERS advertises this week his new arrangement for carrying the mail and passengers to Peru and back twice a week..
