F. Tracy, Traveling Agent. COMMUNICATIONS. _ as Terrible Disaster to Ohambersbnrg. Harrisburg, Aug. 4, 1604. Mu. Gilman, Dear Sir:—Ever since the dreadful disaster At Chambersburg, I have been disposed to i write you au account of it—but have delayed —supposing the telegraph and newspaper re porters would sate the public appetite on the subject. However,—since some of our leading papers boldly charge that the fate of Chambersburg was '‘good enough for it”—I feel like entering my protest, as I consider both my sensibilities and my womanhood insulted. My husband has been post quartermaster there during the past six or eight months, aud consequently I have spent much of my time there, and therefore apeak from personal knowledge. It is said, by some, that Gen. Couch neglect ed to defend the place—and he is consequent ly saddled with the responsibility of the disas ter. On the contrary—Gen. Couch sought by ev ery possible means to rouse the people of the border counties to their danger and urgently appealed to Government for help. He is in command of the Department of the Susquehan na—yet I doubt if his force is one thousand strong all told,—and this is scattered through the state. When the rebels demonstrated an attack the 6lh of July, Gen. Couch caused a battery to be planted at Chambersburg—and added such infantry supports ss he could com- i maud. He posted placards—sent out a drum and life, and caused the bells to be rung hop ing the citizens would volunteer for the de fence of the town. But pacards do not affect the eyes nor drum and life the ears sometimes, j and the citizens remained both blind and deaf. It Is not only worse than useless to blame Gen. Couch for not making a defence—it is a positive wrong. I have yet to learn that a MM. General can any better personally defend a place than a private citizen. A man is but a man—let his rank be what it may, though some suppose there is a vicarious power in a pair ol epaulets; Without force, be could do no less than fail back, and those citizens of Chambers burg who now presume to complain, should - remember how often and earnestly they were appealed to, to arm themselves for their own defence. .. | On the 7th the rebel force fell buck. Wa h ington was menaced and the public mind set tled upon the conclusion that the Cumber land Valley was sale. Such forces of 100 day's men as could be mustered were hurried to Washiugton, and no one supposed auother raid passible. Monday the 25th, Chambers burg was again ail alive with rumors and refugees. A rebel force had re-occupied Marteusburg, and were expected to cross the Potomac at Williamsport. Again General Couch sought to defend the town, but some how the proper spirit was wanting. The rebs did not coose in on the 7th, according to programue, and no one supposed they would come now. Times grew mo re and more ex citing until Friday, the 2btb, when a sharp skirmish took place between Gen. Averill’s troops and the rebs at Mercersburg, a town about sixteen miles southwest of Chambers, burg. At about 10 o’clock Friday night, our scouts came in and reported “all quiet," so that citizens as well as soldiers thought it safe to rest for the night. About 2 o’clock Saturday morning the people were touted by the rumor of the rapid approach of the rebs along a totally unexpected route. All was hurry and confusion. A battery of only two guus was posted to dispute .their eutiance, while Gen. Couch and staff, and such civilliaus as were disposed to go, escaped on the train the Cumberland Valley Railroad Company held in readiness for such an emergency. as iue place naa necn previously occupied without resistence by the rebels several times, the women and children felt little or no ap prehension. They expected to be obliged to feed them, aud had made up their minds to take the spoiling o( their goods quietly, con fident that their stay would be very limited. The men geuerally left the town, takiug with them whatever mouey or valuables at hand, most of them without even a chauge of ga meats. The rebs occupied the place lu the early morning aud before T o’clock commenced the burniug of the town. The drug shops and stores were broken open, balls of turpentine made, straw was thrown into the,open doors aud windows of virions houses, and without a word of warning, fires were set in at least fifty different places at once. As it was early in the day, many children were not yet dress ed, and the women generally were in their morning apparel. As there had been little or no rain for some time, the fires spread with awful rapidity, and it soon became so intense ly hot that the women and children fled to the woods for protection from the scorching flames. The scene beggars description. Mothers of three, four or five chlldreu could be seen frantically looking for the one or two who had got astray in the hurrying, horrified crowd. The wail that went up from the broken hearted women and children, as they saw their homes made desolate, was horrible. In less than six hours the town was in ashes. Many had not yet bad their breakfast, and the hungry children wailed for bread, while their mothers, equally hungry had not a crust for them. Old women, broken by infirmity, crept slowly to the woods, followed by feeble mothers hearing their little ones in their arms, w bile two or three frightened children held close to their garments. And there they staid—that desolate community—staring each other in the face in bitter wretchedness, with out help and without hope, while a rebel horde, maddened by whiskey, run riot in the town. At about three P. M., Gen. Averill's face appeared and the rebr vanished; but the approach of Union faces could not restore the homes of these thousands made so sud denly homeless. Every household has Us treasures. The chair iu which a dead mother used to sit—the portrait of an angel child— the family bibte— the thousand and one cher ished things around which affection lingers— in a moment not only were all these swept away, but even the commonest articles of daily use or comfort. I have found it much easier all my life, to bear other people’s mis fortunes than my own, but Heaven forbid that 1 ever should become so insensible as to be callous to such a st^ue of utter desolation; and those who feel disposed to censure the lack of patriotism the men evinced at Cham bersburg, should'never allow the heartless “good enough for them!” to escape their lips when the awfulness of the calamity falls—as in this case—upon the defenceless. 1 said at the outset that both my sensibili ties and my womanhood were outraged by such inhumanity. Fire side patriots are to be found everywhere. 1 hold that if the wo men of the couulry had been called on as re peatedly—as earnestly, and as perseveringly as the men, to say nothing of the almiglity dollar influence that has been brought to bear, the forces needful to crush out this infernal rebellion, would have reached five millions long ago; and I protest against this spirit which impels men safe behind a pen, a desk, a counter, a plough, an engine or a weak back to crow over a public calamity with an “I told you so!” and a “good enough for you!” Thanks to a generous community, before the shadows of a Sabbath sun had lengthen ed,' there was bread and to spare at Chamber burg. Efforts are now being made to clothe the destitute, as well as provide temporary homes for the homeless, but never will those who witnessed the terrible scenes of Satur day July JOth, 1804, forget the terror, the ag ony the despair on which that days’ sun shone. I have seen a battle-fltld strewu with Its sacred heroes, hospitals crowded with its hosts of wounded, pale men, shutting their lips close, that no groans should escape them; demoralized regiments running they not whither, panic-slrickeu and unmanned, but I must confess it never altlicted me as it dues to see these broken hearted mother’s wander ing with their children by the hand, the little ones pletdiug to go home and the pale-lipped mother’s saying iu broken accents “we have no home.!” Give such people pity,—if nothing more. Truly, Ac. A. A. K. J>ROPOSALS FOR MATERIALS FOR THE NAVY.
