Proclamation. by Gov. Curtin:
HARRISBURG, July 21.—The follow
ing Proclamation.has just been receiv
Pennsylvania, as.
In the name of the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, Andrew G. Curtin,
Governor of the said Commonwealth:,
To sustain the Government in times
of common peril, by all his energies,
his means, and his lifo if need be, lathe
first duty of every loyal citizen. The
President of the United States has
made a requisition on Pennsylitinia,
for twenty-one new regiments, and the
regiments already in thefield must .be
recruited. Enlistments will be made
for nine months in the now regiments
and for twelve months in the old. The
existence of the present.emergepeyis
well understood. ; 11 - 6 patriot Will pause
now to investigate its causes. We
must look to the future. Everything
that is dear to us is at stake. Under"
theSe circumstances I appeal with con
fidence to the freemen of Pennsylvania.
You' have to save your homes and
your firesides, your own liberties and
those of the whole country. I call on
the inhabitants of the counties, cities,
boroughs and township's throughout
our borders to meet: and take active
measures for the immediate furnishing
of the quota of the State. • Let those
who cannot go themselves, contribute
to provide. bounties equal at .least to
those offered by adjoining States. The
constitution prohibits me from draw
ing money from" the treasury. without .
authority of law, and I will not cast a
doubt on the patriotism of our citizens
by4Ssuming the neCessity of calling the
legislatures at this time. ' _This is no
time for legislative action and the ne
gotiation of loans. Delay might be
fatal. To put down this rebellion is
the business of every man in Pennsyl
vania, and her citizens will show on
this occasion that they do not wait for
the slow process of the legislation, and
do not desire to throw on the treasu
ry of the Comnaonwealth a burden
-which they are - individually ready to
beantheinselves. The conduct of our
znewalready in the•fiold has shed int;
moral lustre on Pennsylvania. Let
their brethren. fly . to arms to support
them and make victory speedy as"well
;Is certain.
I designate below the number of
companies which aro expected from
the several counties in the State, trust
ing. the support of her honor in this
crisis, as it may be safely trusted to
the loyalty, fidelity and valor of her
freemen: Whilst the quota of the sev
eral counties is fixed equitably, so as
to fill the requisition for twenty-one
regiments- let not the loyal people of
any county limit their exertions to the
enlistment of the companies named.
Our heroic sons of Pennsylvania have
moistened every battle-field with their
blood. Thousands have bravely died,
defending the unity of the Republic
and the sanctity of our flag, and other
thousands have fallen sick and wound
ed, and their places filled. Freemen
of Pennsylvania! Friends of govern
ment, of order, and of common na
tionality ! One earnest struggle, and
peace will again dawn upon us, as a
happy, prosperous and united people.

seal of State, at Harrisburg, this twen

Lord, ono thousand eight hundred and
sixty-two, and of the Commonwealth

in killed, wounded and missing, in the
seven-days battles, is admitted at Rich

and fifty thousand. " The fact of the
close conscription accounts sufficiently
for their being able to gather so, large
a force. In fact, all the men liable to
military duty are, in the ranks, except
such as got substitutes from Maryland,
or from those over or under the legal
age. Numbers of the Confederate
wounded brought into Richmond were
the merest boys. The Confederates
are desperate in view of the fact that
their present army cannot be replaced,

Some important movements -are on
the tapis to give unity and force to the
military plans of the Government for
the speedy suppression of the rebel
lion. The city is full of rumors rela
tive to the expected arrival of Gener
al Halleck. Some put him in the war
office; some make him commander-in
chief of, the army ; ;some send him
down to the James river and recall
General McClellan. My information
is a little more positive. I have an
•thority for stating to you that Gener
al Halleck does not come here as com
mander-in-chief of no' armies of the
Union. Ho may be appointed Secre
tary of War, but it is believed in well
informed circles that Mr. Stanton will
retire to relieve the President of all
embarrassment, and that Mr. Lincoln
will make General Banks Secretary of
War, with General Halleck as milita
ry adviser.
noN.—We give to-day the important
part of the proceedings of the People's
Party Convention which assembled in
Harrisburg last week. We see noth
ing seriously objectionable in any of
the resolutions, with the exception of
one endorsing the radicalism of Wil
mot. The nominees for Auditor Gen
eral and Surveyor General, arc men of
ability andhonesty and are uncondition
ally for the preservation of the Union.
Wo expected to see more of a party
feeling in the proceedings of the Con
vention, but wo aro gratified that the,
ruling passion -of the party leaders had
to give way to the more conservative
feeling of the masses. If a few rotten
politicians had kept out of the Con
vention, the character of the body
would have been more respectable.
Wo hope the time will come when the
People will rise in their might and put
down every man aspiring to be a lead
er in any party who cannot show an
honest record.
People's State Convention.
Agreeably to the published call of the
State Central Committee, the delegates
to ,the People's State Convention met
in the Representative Chamber at Har
risburg on Thursday last, :till o'clock.
Thomas M. Marshall, of Allegheny
county, was chosen temporary chair
man. The credentials of delegates
Were presented and they took their
seats. The usual committees were ap
pointed on permanent organization and
In the afternoon the committees Te
• Hon. John C. Knox, of Philadel
phia, Attorney General during the ad
ministration of Gov. Packer, was se
lected as permanent President of the
Convention. On taking the chair ho
addressed the convention as follows:
The gentlemen of the convention
will please to accept my thanks for
.their kind partiality in selecting me to
preside over their deliberations. I re
joice to be here to-day, acting in con
cert with the true and loyal man of
Pennsylvania, regardless of former
political associations, and recognizing
at this eventful time as the only trite
tests of fellowship and communion,
love of country, devotion to the Amer
can Union, a fixed and unalterable de
termination to uphold and sustain the
Government of the United States, and
to resist to the death the enemies of
that Government whenever and wher
ever found. [Applause.]
I rejoice especially to be hero, be
cause I can in this way evince my de
sire to strengthen the hands of that
honest man and patriotic statesman,
the President of the United States, to
cheer him on, and to bid him and his
trustworthy counsellors God-speed in
their noble labors for the maintenance
of our Government and the preserva
tion of our 'country. [Applause.]
Yes gentlemen, it is to me a source
of' great pleasure to be able to declare
that., in my judgment, the men at the
head of our National and State admin
istrations • are, in this terrible crisis,
doing their whole duty, and aro con
sequently entitled to our entire confi
dence and our warmest support.
I envy not that man who cannot
now. look beyond the platform of his
party, to the standard of.his country.
The question is not now which po
litical party shall administer the gov
ernment, or what men shall fill its of
fices, but it is whether there shall be
offices to fill or a government to ad
minister, and until this momentous
question is settled, for one, I shall act
with the men who aro the most in earn
est in their efforts to dastrby this re
hellion, and the most determined, sig
nally to.punish the rebels, their alders
and abettors.
I repeat, gentlemen, that I have
great confidence in Abraham Lincoln,
and his chosen counsellors, and I must
be permitted to say, that especially do
I confide in the clear head, sound mind
and honest heart of the Secretary of
War, Edwin M. Stanton, our own im
mediate representative in the Cabinet.
I say this with a full knowledge that
of late a systematic' attempt has been
made to bring this officer into dis
repute, and to cause his removal from
•the high and responsible position which
he now so ably fills.
Every disappointed man, whether
for the opportunity of serving his
country with a title prefixed to his
name, or for furnishing the munitions
of war, at largo profits, visits his ven
geance upon the head of Mr. Stanton.
The friends of this officer cannot, of
course, complain of the most careful
scrutiny into his official conduct, and
do by no means deny that he may, like
othdrs, have committed mistakes; yet,
.when it is seen that the most amens
uredabuse is continually lavished upon
him and his acts; 'that ho is held re
sponsible for consequences, to prevent
which has been entirely beyond his
power, and charged with disasters ari
sing from movements, which he neither
counselled nor directed, it • becomes
necessary to look for the causes which
have induced, and the motives which
have prompted those attacks.
For myself, I believe ho has thus
been attacked,-
Ist, Because he is truly in earnest in
his determination to put down this
rebellion, and
2d, Because ho performs his official
duty without fear, favor or affection.
Those of us who are personally ac
quainted with Mr. Stanton, know that
his intellect is of the highest order;
that he is possessed of a character for
integrity, which even malice has nev
er dared to question, and that what he
undertakes to do, he does with all his
I do not say that all of his opponents
or those who counsel his removal from
the War Department, are either knaves
or secessionists; but I do say, that the
Northern sympathizers with this wick
ed rebellion, with great unanimity as
sort that Mr. Stanton ought not to be
the Secretary of War, and strange as
it may seem the very patriotic gentle
man who have no objections to con
tracts which yield very large profits,
have also discovered that the manner
in which lie conducts his departments
is highly prejudicial to the public
terests. Add to this the restiveness
of the press at the restrictions placed
upon the transmission of military
news, and a certain bluntness of man
ner which is the occasion of offence be
ing sometimes taken where none is in
tended to be given, and you have the
solution of his alleged unpopularity,
and the reasons why he has thus been
singled out for swift destruction.
To praise Gen. McClellan, whilst-de
nouncing Secretary Stanton, is a part
of the plan of the rebellion sympathi
zers; hoping thereby to create divi
sipns and .dissensions amongst the
friends of-the Union and the support
ers of the Government.
. I doubt that man's judgment who
denies to Gen. McClellan, great milita
ry skill, coupled with the most ardent
and enthusiastic devotion to that flag
under which he marshals his hosts for
battle, as I question the sincerity and
patriotism of him, who whilst exalting
Gen. McClellan, vilifies and abuse§ the
President and'his constitutional advi
The true friend of our glorious cause,
supports in their respective jurisdic
tions both Stanton and McClellan, for
they are alike engaged with all their
great powers in sustaining and uphold
ing the best government that ever
floated on the tide of time, and in
crushing the most damnable rebellion
that ever men or devils were engaged
in, since the arch fiend himself made
his impioaS attempt to supplant the
master of Heaven, and to dethrone the
Creator of the universe. [Applause.]
Let us, my friends, beware of the de
vices of these hollow-hearted, pretend
ed friends, and let the true men of' the
nation, whether in the tented field, or
the council chamber, be uphold and
sustained, and let our denunciations
be reserved for thoSe who arc endeav
oring to destroy the Government, and
disunite the States. Our fathers con
structed this Government by long suf
fering, and under great and terrible
privations. They cemented the Union
of these States with their life's blood,
and thus raised and reared the mag
nificent edifice, so that it should re
main a monument to their wisdom and
patriotism forever and forever. Shall
their sons permit the destruction of
this fair temple, and pass to their chil
dren, not the glorious inheritance which'
They received from their fathers, but a
divided, mutilated and dissevered es
tate, without "form or comliness " to
be regarded only by the nations of the
earth,. as a fit subject for scorn and re

" Was Freedom's home or Glory's grave.
"Shrine of the Mighty, can it be
"That this is all remains of thee?"
No, no, Heaven forbid, rather let us
look forward to that day, when peace
shall again be restored to our common
country; when no government, or pre
tended government, shall be recognized
by any part of the American people,
except that government which was
presided over by Washington in its
infancy, strengthened and perfected by
Adams and Jefferson, Madison and
- Monroe, in .its youth, protected by the
iron will and unflinching courage of
Andrew Jackson in its early ago, and
now preserved from the attacks of' a
traitorous brood by the strong arms
and willing hearts of- more than five
hundred thousand true American sol
To this end, let us maintain our
country's cause, with our treasure, and
if needs be, with our blood. Let us
refuse all intercourse, politically and
personally, with such as are now false
to the old flag, and let us swear by our
Manhood, and our hopes of heaven,
never to yield to this rebellion, even
though, in resisting it, our hearthstones
should become a desolation and our
homes a dream. [Applause.]
Mr. McMichael, froin the Committee
on resolutions, reported the following:
Resolved, That the Convention rep
resenting as it does the loyal citizens
of Pennsylvania, without distinction of
party, re-affirms the sentiments em
bodied in the resolution adopted at a
meeting of the loyal members of Con
gress at the national capital, July 12th,
1802, viz:
" That we bold it to be the duty of
all loyal mon to stand by the Union
in this hour of its trial; to unite their
hearts and hands in earnest, patriotic
efforts for its maintenance against
those who are in arms against it; to
sustain with determined resolution our
patriotic President and his administra
tion in their energetic efforts for the
prosecution of the war and the preser
vation of the Union at home or abroad;
to punish traitors and treason with
fitting severity, and to crush the pres
ent wicked and causeless rebellion, so
that no flag of disunion shall everlagain
be raised over any portion of the Re.
public; that to this end we invite the
co-operation of all men who love their
country, in the endeavor to rekindle
throughout all the States such a patri
otic fire as shall utterly consume all
who strike at the Union of our litthers,
and all who sympathize with their
treason or palliate their guilt.'
Resolved, That we have continued
confidence in the honesty, capacity and
patriotism of President Lincoln and
his constitutional advisors; that we
approve the principles on which his
policy, both foreign and domestic, have
been conducted; that we sanction and
sustain all the measures which he has
found it necessary to adopt to guard
the government against the assaults
of traitors, their sympathizers and
abettors, and that we esteem it emi
nently fortunate that in this most try
ing crisis of our ,cherished Union, wo
have at the helm of public affairs ono
so upright, temperate, prudent and
firm as ho has proved himself to be.
Resolved, That wo cordially approve
of the administration of Andrew G.
Curtin, Governor of this Common
wealth, marked, as it has been, by ex
traordinary vigor in the discharge of
all public duties, by untiring zeal in
the cause of the Country, and especial
, ly in recruiting forces for the national
' army, by enlarged and liberal care for
the sick and wounded soldiers of the
State, by a wise and prudent economy
in tho expenditures of the funds coin
, 'flitted to his care, and by the unspa
' ring devotedness of all its members,
and in particular of the Govornorhim
self, to the constant, harrassing,
cated and novel labors which the exi
gencies of the great rebellion have ha
, posed.
/?c,s•olroi, That we iv:knowledge but
two divisions of the people of the Uni
ted States in this crisis; those who are
loyal to its constitution and every inch
of its soil, and are ready to make ev
ery sacrifice for the integrity of the
Union, and the maintenance of civil
liberty within it, and those who openly
or covertly endeavor to sever our
country, or to yield to the insolent de
mands of its enemies; that we fratern
ize with the former, and detest the lat
ter; and that, forgetting all former
party names and distinctions, we call
upon all patriotic citizens to rally for
ono undivided country, one flag, one
Resolved, That the government of the
United-States and its people, with an
occasional exception. among the reck
less inhabitants where this rebellion
was fostered, have wisely and studious
ly avoided all interference with the
concerns of other nations, asking, and
usually enjoying, alike, non-interfe
rence with their own, and that such is,
and should continue to be, its policy;
that the intimations of a contemplated
departure from this sound rule of con
duct on the part of some' orthe nations
of Europe, by an intervention in our
present struggle, is as unjust to them
as it would be to us and to the great
principles for which we are contend
ing; but we assure them, with, a solem
nity of conviction which admits of no
distrust or fear, and from a knowledge
of and a firm reliance upon the spirit
and fortitude of twenty millions of
freemen, that any attempt thus to in
tervene will meet a resistance unparal
leled in its force, unconquerable in its
persistenCe; and fatal to those whom
it is intended to aid; and that it will
tend only to strengthen and elevate
the republic.
Resolved, '44 the skill, bravery and
endurance exhibited by our army and
navy have elicited our admiration and
gratitude ; 'that we behold in these
qualities the assurances of sure and
speedy success to our arms, and of rout'
and discomfiture to the rebels; that
we urge the government to aid and
strengthen them by all the means in
its power, and carefully to provide for
sick, wounded and disabled soldiers
and their families ; to prosecute the
war with increased vigor and energy,
until the rebellion is utterly crushed,
the integrity of the Union in all its
borders restored, and every rebel re
duced to submission, or driven from
the land; and that to,accomplish those
ends we pledge to our rulers our faith,
our fortunes and our lives. • '

WAsnuroroN, July 14.—The follow
ing address has just been issued :
To the Officers and Soldiers of the Ar
my of Virginia:
By special assignment of the PreSi
dent of the United States,l have as
sented the command of this army. I
have spent two weeks in learningyour
whereabouts, your condition and your
wants, in preparing you for active op
erations, and in placing yon in posi
tions from which you can act prompt
ly and to the purpose:
These labors aro nearly completed,
and I am about to join you in the field.
Let us underst s and each other. I
have come from the West, where we
have always seen the backs of our on
emics—from an army whose business
it has been to seek the adversary, and
to beats him where ho was found—
whose policy has been attack and not
defence. In but one case has the ene
my been able to place our Western ar
my in a defensive attitude.
I presume that I have been called
here to pursue them, and to lead you
against the enemy. It is my purpose
to do so, and that speedily. lam sure
you long for an opportunity to win
the distinction you aro capable of
achieving; that opportunity I shall en
deavor to give you. •
In the meantime I desire you to dis
miss from your Minds certain phrases,
which I am sorry to find much in vogue
amongst you. I hear constantly of
taking strong positions, and holding
them, of lines of retreat, and of bases
of supplies. . Let us discard such ideas.
The strongest position a soldier
should desire to occupy is ono from
which he can most easily advance
against the enemy. Let us study the
probable lines of retreat of our oppo
nents, and leave our own to take care
ofthemsolves. Let us look before us
and not behind. Success and glory aro
in the advance. Disaster and shame
lurk in the rear.
Let us act on this understanding,
and it is safe to predict that your ban
ners shall be inscribed with many a
glorious deed, and that your names
will be dear to your countrymen for
ever. JOHN POPE,
Major-General Commanding.
