VOLUME 35. BERKSHIRE COUNTY EAGLE, AUGUST 20, 1863. NUMBER 5 THE WAR. A New Orleans lettor to the Herald, states that the feeling of tho people of Mobile ia Ycry despondent. They anticipate an attack every day, and it is thought if that city is sorioualy threatened it would surrender. Provisions are very high, and they deeiro no more sick and wounded prisoners to bo sent there, as there is no medicines thero, and no means of feeding them. The squadron off Mobile is being largely increased. A conscript who arrived at Newbera on tho 13th from Wilmington, N. O w reports that within a few days 17 large steamers had arrived at that port having run the blockade, loaded with stores, among which are 96,000 English rifles, 160,000 ready made uniforms, 23,000 cases of ready made army ahoej, 11 locomotives, 6 rifled cannon of heavy caliber, 5 cargoes of railroad iron and skillful men accompanying them. A recent cavalry expedition from Corinth released 260 conscripts taken by the guerilla, Forest. A company of Coleman's men came into Corinth on Tuesday from Waynesboro. They wore conscripted by the rebels, and had several fights with Biflles. They refused to go with him, and armed themselves and reported at Corinth to enter the United States service. Gen. Roiccrituu' Advance. Private advicas from Roseorana" army state that our forces have been divided into two grand divisions, and moved toward Chattanooga on Monday last by different routes. The eoigo of tho rebel stronghold will doubtless soon commence, as it is not probable that our forces will meet with any very serious opposition before reaching there. Tho New York Htrald of Saturday had dispatches from "W iu- Chester, Tenn., to which point Gen. Rose- orans had advanced. The position of the rebels is thus described : "Ihe enemy hold the Tennessee river from Harrison to Bridgeport. Harrison is their right, Chattanooga the centre--tho fortified citadel--and Bridgeport is the left. Tho whole line covers the important positions of Cleveland and other points on tho railroad from Knoxville to Atlanta. Bragg knows that if we move on Chattanooga our lino must accommodate itself to his. If we do not ho stands ready to accommodate himself to ours. At any rate there is no fear that wo are going to commit tho fault of leaving him on our flank again.'' Gcu. Graul'n Report, Tho official report of Gen. Grant of his campaign in Mississippi and tho surrender of Vicksburg, haa been prepared. Gen. Grant frankly confesses tho mistakes of some of his first Jitternpts upon Vicksburg, and sums- up tho results of his campaign against Vicks burg as.follows: "The result of this campaign has been the defeat of the enemy in five battles outside of Yioksburg ; tho occupation of Jackson, the tho capital of the stato of Mississippi, and the capture of Vicksburg and its garrison and munitions of war ; a loss to the enemy of 37,000 prisoners, among whom were 16 general officers; at least 10,000 killed and .wounded, and among the killed Generals Traoy, Tilghman and Green, and hundreds and perhaps thousands of stragglers, who never can bo collected and re-organized. Arms and munitions of war for an army of 60,000 men have fallen into our hands, besides a large amount of other public property, consisting of railroads, locomotives, cars, steamboats, cotton, c., and much was destroyed to prevent our capturing it. Our loss in tho series of battles may be summed up as follows : Killed. Wounded Missing Port Gibson 130 718 Fourteen Milo Creek, News Miscellany. A lady calling herself Mrs. J. E. West o Sandusky, Ohio, ingratiated herself into th favor of a reiil estate broker at,Chicago, an bargained for 'a largo amount ol property i tho city.' " She then got a check cashed ac or! of tho banks for $11,000, and it afterward proved to be a forgery. Tho lady escape with tho money, and has not since boon hear of. A copperhead orator says that '« will prompt Louis Napoleon to espouse th Confederate cause, whether Great Britain wil or will not join him." Destiny sent his un cle to Moscow, Waterloo and St. Helena. Counterfeit tens on the John Hancock Ban] of Springfield, aro in circulation, and so we) executed as almost to defy detection. So ap one dollar U. S. notes altered to tons. Carr, the supposed murderer of Mrs. Mar) Loomis, at Worcester, Vermont, has been ar rested in Greensboro'. Ho is in jail aud im plicates a brother-in-law of tho deceased wh has also been arrested. Returns, mostly official, from 99 of tho 10 counties in Kentucky, show that Bramlctto Union, for Governor, has 06,370 votes Wiokliftb, Dem., 17,615 ; Brauilotte's ina jority, 48,055. Tho 11 counties to como in will bring it up to somewhere near 55,000. A meeting of tho National Democrat Committee ia called at the St. Nicholas Ho tel,"in the city of Now York, on Monday September 7th,'lSG3, at 12 o'clock, noon, foi the purpose of fixing the timo aud place o holding the next National Democratic Con vcntion, and to take into consideration sue) other matters of interest as will probivbl; como befofo tho Convention. Tho Mississipi River is btill free from guor illos, but Mobile papers say strong guorillt parties aro being organized to annoy boat and destroy navigation. If this is carriec out, thero will not be a house left within twenty miles of tho river banks, and ever} guerilla caught will be summarily hung. In Utica. ft man confined to his bed witl fever, hearing that he was drafted, becam excited, arose, walked the room, and fel dead. The Rev. Dr. Francis Wayland, tho emi nent Baptist author aud divine, has made cal dilations showing that the American Boari of Commissioners for Foreign Missions doei not receive annually as much money as is spent in the city of New York alone fo cigars. Gen. Grierson has again taken the saddh for the immediate benefit of fho West Tennessee guerillas--Biflles and Forest and tha class, who may read their doom iu the fate o .Morgan. The New York Herald says that tho gen uino copperhead platform is, "The Union as ii as under Buchan i n , tho Constitution as ii is under Jeff. Davis."

Not more than one half tho wounded were permanently disabled." Of t^o capitulation Gen. Grant gives this brief account: On the afternoon of the 3d of July a letter was received from Lieutenant General Pemberton, commanding the Confederate forces at Vicksburg. proposing an armistice and the appointment of commissioners to arrange terms for the capitulation of the place. The correspondence resulted in the surrender of the city and garrison of Vicksburg at 10 o'clock A, M., July 4, 1863, on the following terms : tho entire garrison, officers and men, were to be paroled, not to take arms against tho United States until exchanged by the proper authorities ; officers and men euch to bo furnished with a parole, signed by himself; officers to be allowed their side arms and private baggage, and the field, staff and cavalry officers, one horao each ; tho rank and file to te allowed all their clothing, but no other property ; rations from their own stores sufficient to last them beyond our lines ; tho necessary cooking utensih for preparing their food: and thirty wagons to transport such articles as could" not well be carried. The terms I regarded more favorable to the government than an unconditional surrender. It saved us the transportation of them north, which at that timo would have been very difficult, owing to tho limited amount of rivet transportation on band, and the expense of subsisting them. It left our army free to to operate against Johnson, who was threatening us from tho direction of Jackson ; und our river transportation to be used for the movement of troops to any point tho exigency of the service might require." WHAT CRIME COSTS.--The trials of the New York rioters thus far have resulted in sentences covering a century of imprisonments which will be increased tenfold before the work is concluded. The Commercial says that, in addition--hundreds of persons havo fled the city, or lurk in closest hiding, haunted by their horrible crimes and dreading arrest at every moment. Scores arb maimed for life, and hosts of poor families aro loft in great destitution, with the public sympathy necessarily diverted from them, while they Buffer a merited retribution for their own participation in the fiendish orgies of this carnival of violence. The prisons aro waiting for the convicted felons of the riot week. These are some of the results and lessons that the mob may lay to heart, and which will be likely to deter others from undertaking a second outbreak. * * The clnrge of Recorder Hoffman to tho grand jury gave promise of his earnestness in the prosecution of tho rioters, and his whole course during the trials has shown him to be fearless and just.-The jurors, too have done their duty without fear or favor. Drawn from the body of the people, and representing all shades of political faith, they have quietly but firmly vindicated the honor of tho city, and majesty of th,} law, and the rights of persons and property. It is manifest that tho riot has no sym- pathizors in that large class of meu from which the jury list is drawn. At New Hudson, N. Y., en Saturday, a Mrs. Suttern went to feed a chained bear that was supposed to bo tame, when the animal sprang upon her, and partially ate her body. The creature had to be shot before the remains could be procured. VALLASDIGIIAM IN TROUBLE.--According to the Toledo Biadc, men who were tho mosi prominent in effecting the nomination of Val landigham for Governor of Ohio, includ ing some of those who are on the same ticke with h i m , have agreed to present a proposa to him requiring a pledge that, in case of his election, ho will co-operate fully with the National Government in the support of its war measures, and that he is to have the choice of signing it or giving place to sonii. man who will mako that pledge. TERRIBLE CALAMITY ATCOHOES.--FIFTKK»V CIRIS EUKNEB TO DEATH.--The knitting mill of Richard Hurst, at Oohoes, N. Y., took fire Monday forenoon at 10 1-2 o'clock. Tho flames spreading with gicit rapidity. Tlic employees, mostly women, were all in the building, some of them in the third stoi_ from which it was impossible for them to escape. The result was that Eeveral perished in the flames, and a still greater number were injured by jumping from the windows, Twenty-fivo aro missing, fifteen of whom aro reported burned to death. The loss of property will be about $30,000. Insured for 823,000. Judge Waterbury, in his partizan document, got up to sustain Qov. Seymour's un fortunate position, says that in his interview with President Lincoln, the latter declared " with an earnestness I was glad to observe, 'I will not peimit either a real t or an apparent fraud.' " The contrast between the President, anxious to rigbt all wrongs, and Gov. Seymour intent on magnifying the difficulties the President desires to remove, is altogether in favor of " honest Abe."--Troy W/ny. L)nowN£i.--Allen Manley, son of David Manley, of South New Boston, Sandisb'eld, left home to go fishing into Tolland on the 9th inst. Having been absent longer than was anticipated, search was inado and his body was found in a brook, where the water was about two feet deep. Young Manley was subject to fits, and it is supposed he was taken with one on the bank of tho stream and fell in. So says the Winsted Herald. The list of names of prisoners paroled at Vicksburg filled a box about three feet long and two feet iu w i d t h and depth ! M A R R I E D . At Great Harrington, July 1, by Rev. P.

Bottle of Madame Poitor's Curative Balsam, the cost of manufacturing which is as great aa that of almost any other medicine ; and the very price at which it is sold, makes the profit to seller apparently small, and unprincipled dealers will sometimes recommcn I other medicines on which their profits arc larger, unless the customers insist upon having Macl-unc Porter's and none other.
