The Neirs.
It will le seen f rem ccx telegraphic
columns that the rebels are making a raid
into Maryland and Pennsylvania. This
is a change of Programme that veare
iioi fcorry to hear. It will stop for awhile
the stale song, '-All quiet on the Poto" They will doubiless commit many
dt-prtdations, and steal :tgreat deal of
property, but they will be much exposed,
and we hope the larger portion of them
will be bagged before they get back.
The latest reports brought by possen
gers on the boat, state that they were at
Hurrisburg-; and that the Governor of
New Yo'rk:had 'called out 30.C00 mihtia,
which were to be put under Gen. Mc
Clellan. Militia to serve for six months
was being rapidly raiV-d in Pennsylva
nia, Maryland and Ohio.
Gen Hooker was retreating to the de
fences of Washington, and Lee was close
at his heels.
Law and Order.
Of late we hear a good many sermons,
on the above text.- Some of our friends
up the Creek, at Omaha, Nebraska City
and other places, and even some of our
own citizens, seem to fear that the peo
ple of Nemaha County are about to
loose all respect for law are in danger
. of drifting into a boundless and unknown
Ocean without rudder, Compass or Chart
. We hear it remarked that the murder
that occurred on the sixth inst., could not
' have taken place three years ago, the
community was then not so much dem
oralized." That may be true. There
were not so many rebels three years ago
as now. We do not object to this preach
ing. All good men should be in favor
of sustaining Law and Order. Sermons
are none the worse for being oft re
pealed. Mankind are heedlss. The
truth has to be told them, sometimes a
thousand times, before they believe it.
We do not beleive, however, that the
people of this county are very much de
moralized, or that they are much worse
than our neigbors further North, or than
we were ourselves three years ago. We
think nineteen twentieths of the people
this county, are now and always have
been opposed to mobs. There are oc
casioeally extreme case in which commu
nities countenance, and justify extra-legal
proceedings. For instance, if a band of
men were believed to be armed or arm
ing for the purpose of committing depre-
dations in the community, or if they
were secretly conspiring against the lives,
or the peace of their, neighbors and
against laws and government, under
such circumstances citizens would be ex
cusible if they visited such band of men,
even without due process of law, and dis
armed them. Again. Where a manor
men are guilty of horse stealing, and
their guilt becomes notorious, they are in
most neighborhoods in this Western coun
try, if caught, executed by order of Judge
Lynch. There has been many instances
, of this kind in Nebraska. N'.ne, how
ever, we believe, in Nemaha County
Two or three years ago, two men accused
of horse-stealing-, were taken out of jail
at Omaha, and murdered in a most hor
rihle manner. A year ago last winter,
a jayhawker was murdered at Nebraska
City, and if current reports were true, it
was attended with circumstances of the
most savage brutality. Both "murders
were cold blooded and horrible, fully as
much so as the one committed in this
county, and showing as much de.norali
zation, yet nobody got frightened about
iu Nobody, unless it was some other
horse-thief, proposed to leave the country.
Mr. Handley had been guilty of treason,
a crime greater than horse-stealing. He
had afterwards, had a fight with, and
whipped three different men, out of re
venge for which he was murdered. There
is no necessity for any man pretending
lobe afraid of personal injury unless he
is placed under circumstances similar to
those mrrounding Handley. Most peo
pie did consider him in danger. If there
are men in Atchison county, or in this
county, disposed to excuse or palliate the
murder, their number is very small ten
fold smaller than those who have justified
the murder of horse-thieves in the Ter
ritory. We are a little surprised to hear
men eulogizing Law and Order, who
have for years past advised breaking
Law under certain circumstances.
. . WTe do not make these statements to
justify or excuse the murder of Nathan
Handley. We merely wUh to show that
crimes equally ashenious have been per
petrated in other places, and that we
have at least as much respect for law as
our neighbors. Indeed, the citizens of
this county had nothing whatever to do
with the murder. They might, it is
true, have prevented it, if the threats
made that day, had been generally known
in time ; but nobody in this county was
responsible for the commission of it.
The affair will be investigated by the
proper authorities, and the parties, we
' suppose, punuhed as may be deemed
'.most just and expedient.
We hope to see the Law sustained and
enforced. There may be causes where
W is necessary to go beyond the Law in
"rtff-defence, but those rases very rarely
occur. That cf IUndby certainly was
cot cae. Gvruraeat has promised
protection to those who returned from the
rebel array, took the oath and gave bonds,
and as long as they behave that promise
must be respected.

The report that this Regiment was
sent to Vicksburg is not true. s We have
a letter written June 11. dated at Pilot
Knob. We make the following extracts
from the lettei : .
"Livingston is still Post commandant
at St. Louis. Lt. Col. Bautner is there
sick. Major Blacker, is also on duty at
St. Louis. Capt. Majors is commanding
the regiment. Co. 'C," at present is
garrisoning Fort ut Arcadia, 3 miles
from Pilot Knob. Lieut. Griffin, on de
tached-service as Ordinance Officer for
five months, is now with, and command
ing our company. Sergeant Buckley,
was thrown from a horse, on the road to
Chalk Bluff, and fractured on of his ribs.
He is now about well and is doing duty."
We will make further extracts next
week, when we will have more room.

Camp Hill. Iowa, )
June. 11th 1S93.
Editor Advertser: After son-down
last Saturday evening Col. Furnas re
ceivd an order from Gen. Sully, requir
ing two co's, of the Neb. Second to report
next day. (Sunday) at Sioux City, for
duty, the Col. with his usual promptness
ordered co's. 4,AV and "E," both under
the command of Capt. Hiil to report as
directed, and at an early hour on Sunday
morning, thoie co's. struck tents, left
Camp Cook, and reported as direct
ed to the Gen., who ordered them
to select camping grounds. Capt.
Hill with a view to strategy, no doubt,
commissioned one of his engineers to
make the selection, which he did to the
entire satisfaction of the command con
tiguous to the City, having the Mo.
river on one side, a deep ravine on an
other, and a bold and precipitous bluff on
the third side; thus forming a triangle
which nature has so strongly fortified
that this present command, is in no dan
ger of being surprised by the wily foe,
and has yet a further advantage of being
so near the city, that if a soldier or of
ficer is suddenly attacked with the colic,
(which is frequentlly the case)he ran in
a minut or so get some peppermint drops.
which is an icfaliable remedy ; especi
ally when mixed with the essence of
corn, rye &c, tbie disease is rather pre
valent here at present among this detach
ment and a portion of the 30th Wiscon
sin who are quartered here; but neither
complain much ; in fact they like the dis
ease, as .the remedy is so palatable;
which they use without much grumbling
at the prescription
This has been a busey week here un
loading goods for the expedition, which
from the present indications will sun
north in a few days. How far into the
hyperborean regions your informant
saith not a? he is not particular) posted
in these matters, but if dame rumor be
rorrect we will go within a few miles of
Her Majesty's Dominions, and if so I
doubt not but some brave "soger boys
will have the temerty to plant the stars
and strps on that sacred soil, if for no
thing eUe, for the fun of it.
The boys are all to have a new rig in
a day or two, coats, hats, pants &c. , and
are all armed to the teeth, which you'll
allow to be th'i case when each soldier
has a large navy revolver, a sabre, an
Enfield rifla,. and there is serious talk of
their being further 6'jpplied wih anoth
er sabre each, and if not fully armed
and loaded down; each man will lash a
twelve pound howzeter to his horse.
Let Little Crow and his red imps be
ware how thy cross th war path of th
2d - Neb.,-thus -armed-and ticcoutered.
Gen. Sully, who superceded Gen.
Cook, in this department is an old in
dian fighter, having been with Harney
in hisxampalgn against' the Indians, be
sides this he has been through all the
battles fought on the sacred soil of Vir
ginia since the rebellion broke out. He
is the man for this expedition, having all
this prestage to go on, he commands and
has the confidence of both men and offi
cers of this expedition., !
-The Nemaha county boys are all well.
Oour worthy Col.Jis at work day and night
getting everything 'ready' for 'the march.
The boys are tired of laying still, and are
anxious to move on the foe; in fact thty
they are spiling for a fi?ht, and what is
belter they are in hopes of at least catch- J
ing one red skin, if they can only see him,
before they return, a thing which would
be extremly doubtful; were it not for
some genius, ' who haptly hit upon a
plan, which if carried out successfully may
give the boys a fair chance io see if not
not to catch an Indian. It is this ; the ex
pedition is supplied, (at the suggestion
of this geni us, who he is I don't know;
it may be the Gen. of the Mackerl Brig
ade,) with several, it not more barrels
of pure rot-cut, and "it is confidently as-
serted by men high i n command that if
the Indians are properly baited with this
new and modern improvement of war
fare, they can be catched. If not, not.
Of the result of this and other method,
should any be adopted, you shall hear in
time from Me.
Erom the Nebraska First.
Pit ot Kxob, J one 6th, 16(3.
Mr. Editor: since writing you last
we have enjoyed another season of
disappointment: by orders to leave
Cape Girardeau for Pilot Knob. I,
myself was extended upon a carpet in
a cool, handsomely furnished room,
calculating whether to engage the
same for three months, or only to take
it a month at a time, during the sum
mer, when . a messenger announced
the order to march at six the next
morning. The officers generally had
their wives there, some of the private
soldier theirs also, and some of the
public soldiers had entered upon the
preliminaries of courtships, which
were likely to be consummated by fall
say hog-killing time. Immediately
thereupon-the barbers had just cause
for putting up their fees for shaving,
on account of lengthened faces. And
the price of salt should have fallen, for
the briny was every where forthcom
ing, or coming forth. The running to
and for, that evening, indicated a state
of insubordination in camp, or an at
tempt on the part of bold soldier boys
to recruit the regiment by impressment.
The contagion seemed to be catching.
A ball was given that night, and the
bawling never ceased till "distance
stole enchantment from the view."
Some officers, one at least, of whom I
now remember, who never flinched
before a rebel battery, faltered before
the fire of two or three bright eyes,
and begged for quarters.
One was wounded in the heel, and
could not march, and hence remained
another, and yet another night. One
could only be got clear of, by marrying
hitn and coming along. Some marched
out in the mo in ing, but as the camp
was only ten miles distant that even
ing, and five miles could be made per
hour, came back againg by night,
seeking among the hospitables, for an
article called hearts-ease. But the
majority looked not back, fearing the
fate of Lot's wife, and knowing the
article was contraband.
The third day out, Pilot Knob, with
its huts and Lager Beer, gladdened
eye and stomaclw Five days in camp,
and an expedition to Little Rock be
ing expected in a month, again we
were reposing beneath our own "vine
and fig tree," when orders came to
move for Vicksburg in an hour. Con
sternation took hold of those who had
not yet written back to Cape Girar
deau, for much was to be done and a
short time allotted. Waggons were
packed, and the order to march was
half-way out of Cap. Majors' throat,
when it was countermanded, and all
we heard was mar. The original plan
was mared. That was Batisfactory.
Now Col. Ligingston, it is said, is to
he commander of this post, and if so
we will stay here, till ordered to more.
If Grant needs us, the boys are anx
ious to see how a regular siege is
conducted ; and then they would charge
a battery any time, in order to get to
come back by the Cape.
The rebels have been reported fifty
miles south of this, and did charge
upon a camp of our cavalry, at day
light one day last week; wounding
several, and retiring in haste.
By publishing this our friends will
know where to address us for a few
davs. Yours: Nemaua.

The following particulars in regard
to the fight at Monticello to' the" 10th
are received : Col. Kantz's command
consisting of the 7th, and a detach
ment of the 2d Ohio cavalry regiments
and a portion of the 2d East -Tenn.
infantry, crossed the river on the night
of the 10th, and were in' motion at
4 o'clock next morning. The rebels
under, Pegram were completely sur
prised. After driving them through
Monticello,' bur forces continued three
miles on the Jamestown road in pun
suit. :, It not being the intention to
hold the place, our forces began to
retreat at two o'clock in the afternoon
Our forces were but little molested
until within eight miles this side cf
Monticello, when Pegram V ' forces
overtook their rear guard, when fight
ing commenced in earnest. Here we
were reinforced by the remainder of
the 2d East Tennessee and 45th Ohio.
The whole of Colontd Kantz's cm
mand again moved against the enenv,
who were pressed back one mile.
Taking a position behind a stone wall
thev made a stubborn stand, and
finally pressed our men heavily with
greatly superior forces, and compelled
them to fall back 50 yards. "The 21
East Tenn. were ordered into the
woods, where the enemy was now
spreading his force. This regiment
came on in a splendid manner, at a
double quick, and, raising a shout,
dashed into the rebels, who were soon
compelled to fall back. At dark, our
forces! being numerically inferior to
the enemv. Colonel Kantz determined
upon retiring about for mile, where
the men bivouacked and returned to
the highlands opposite next morning.
Losses not ascertained.
