Civil War Newspaper Clippings
OFF TO THE WARS.—We see Martin, of the Silver Creek Mirror has gone
on with the "bloody" 68th and left the Mirror in charge of his wife.
We welcome her to the corps editorial, — Chant. Democrat.
The felicitations of our friend of the Democrat upon the accession of Mrs.
Martin to the corps editorial will be sadly interfered with by the fact that
Martin didn't go after all. We saw him with his "soger clothes" on,
and know that his disposition was good, but a sturdier fellow who could do
better execution on Uncle Sam's pork and hard tack volunteered in his place.
THE SECOND GERMAN RIFLES ACCEPTED.
The second German rifle regiment (Cameron Rifles), Colonel E. J. Betge, has
been accepted and ordered to be mustered into the service on the 8th of August
next. The reverse at Bull Run has had the effect of increasing the number
of enlistments among the Germans, and it is said this regiment has recruited
nearly six hundred men during the past four days. The officers, who are experienced
men, graduates of military academies, appeal to the
public to assist in defraying for the present the heavy expenses of the regiment.
The headquarters are at Nos. 46 and 48 East Houston street, and the camp at
Conrad's Elm Park.
MORE VETERANS COMING.—The Sixty-eighth Regiment New York State Volunteers,
numbering about two hundred and fifty men, left Buffalo at eight o'clock this
morning, and are expected to reach here at 8:30 this evening. This regiment
was recruited and organized in the city of New York. It is expected that they
will remain in this city one day, and will probably leave for New York on Wednesday
MORE RE-ENLISTED VETERANS.—Yesterday afternoon, about one hundred and
sixty of the Sixty-eighth N. Y. Volunteers, on their way home to New York city,
passed through here, under command of Lieut.-Col. Steinbauer. This regiment
was known as the Steuben Rangers and left New
York one thousand strong some two years ago. It is now reduced to two hundred
and forty men. It has been at Knoxville lately.
