The Amendments to the Constitution.
The Legislature of Pennsylvania, at
two successive sessions, has agreed
upon certain amendments to the Con
stitution of the State, and they are to
be submitted to a vote of the people at
a special election to be held on the,2d
of August. The amendments are as
SECTION 4. "Whenever any of the quell.
fled electors of this commonwealth shall be
in any actual military service, under a re
quisition from the President of the United
States, or by authority of this Commonwealth
such electors may exercise the right of
frage in all elections by the citizens, under
such . regulations as are or shall be prescri
bed by law, as fully as if they were present
at their usual places of elections.
SECTION B.—No bill shall be passed by
the Legislature containing more than one
subject, which shall be clearly expressed in
the . Otte; except appropriation bills.
SECTION 9.—No bill shall be passed by
The LegislatUro granting any powers or priv
ileges in any case where the authority to
grant tomb powers, or privileges, has been,
or may hereafter be cotgerred upon the
Courts of the CommonweSith.
Every gobd citizen will approve of
' these amendments. The soldiers,
above all others, are entitled to every
• privilege - of citizenship, and it is an
outrage to deprive these brave defen
ders of our nationality of the right to
vote, while it is allowed to traitors
- and eoWards, who stay at home. The
other amendments Will be some cheek
upon wrong and tricky legislation, of
which, unhappily, we have had so
much of late years.
In two weeks the election which is
to decide upon these amendments will
be held. Measures should be adopted
at once for getting out a full vote of
the people. We do not observe that
the Wenfocratie organs, and the lead
ers of the party, who profess to be
- each friends of the soldiers and the
people, are doing anything to-excitean interest in favor of the amend
..ments. It ss, therefore, all the more
important that the Union men in ev
ery county should exert themselves,
and we hope that the State and coun—
ty comniittees will go to work ener
getically. While the Copperhead lea
ders do not dare to oppose the amend
ments openly, there is reason to fear
"that they will secretly endeavor to
have them defeated. All such plans
must be foiled by the Union men, and
every voter should bo eshorted to go
to the polls and deposit a ticket "For
the Amendment." The Legislature
will meet in special session on the 23d
of Aegust to count the votes, and if
the amendments are adopted, as we
believe they will be, the soldiers will
be able to vote at the October and No- .
The Recent Rebel Raid.
Rota the . .. Ar. Y. Tribune July 15.
The first that was publicly known
of a Rebel raid into Maryland was last
Monday week, when the approach of
a force toward Martinsburg .was an
nounced. The bond of the Shenando
ah Valley was then held by Gen. Sigle,
who seems not to have. apprehended
the possibility of a Rebel advance, and
who accepted the news of it as a sig
nal for retreat upon Harper's Ferry.
It does not appear that the Rebels
were at first in any considerable force.
They made : Various demonStrations,
:Pushing cavalry: across the PotoMac
at Falling Waters, and at Shepherds
town, and threatening simultaneous.
ly an inroad into Pennsylvania 'end a
movementupon Baltimore. With their
accustomed audacity, they had Shown•
their heads of colums'days before.the
main body was within supporting dis
temhe, and although they might easily
have been driven back in confusion
had they been' resolutely met, were
suffered to establish themselves north
of the Potomac without serious oppo
sition. They occupied both Hagers
town and Frederick, and did not did
sively indicate. their line of advance
till the whole Pennsylvania border,
had retreated' in panic—then turned .
scornfully toward Baltimore.
The evidenceof what we have sta.
tot' above as to the slow arrival of the
Rebel column ale, found in the fact that
from the time when the crossing of the
Potomac was ascertained down to,the
time when the battle at Honocacy
was fought, nothing was known of
the Rebels movements. Their force
was simply concentrating. Gen. Wal.
lace, with what troops he could gath
er, went up from Baltimore to Freder
ick, and on Friday discovered the
presence of the enemy in force advan
cing on the Hagerstown turnpike.
Falling back to the I , lonocacy as the
best defensive line, he fought a battle
on Saturday, and was defeated. His
force was about 7,000; that of the ene
my at least twice as many. But his
stand had served to develop the num
ber and something of the intentions of
the Rebels—was, in fact, a reconnois. -
sauce in-force, and as such successful.
After the battle the movements of
the Rebels were rapid and well-direct
ed. A cavalry force were sent east
to cut the Northern Central and Phil
adelphia and Baltimore Railroads, and
did their work pretty thoroughly;Con
sidering the time and means granted
them. They succeeded in creating
the impression that a dash on Wash
ington was contemplated—the suppos
ed danger 'to Baltimore disappearing
when it became known that Wallace
was not pursued, and that no infantry
force had crossed the Itionocacy. The
bridges on the Philadelphia road, .be
ing protected by gunboats. were not .
seriously injured, excepting that oyez
Gunpowder Creek, but the telegraph
was cut, two passenger trains from
Baltimore were captured, and time was
gained for the safe movement of the
main body on the Rockville road to
South of Baltimore the Rebels. fol
lowed the same. tactics. Their col
umswero massed, and their cavalry
cut the Washington road with' the
same -purpose and result as they had
previously cut tb ePh iladelpbia. From
the cessasion of telegraphie_and_r •
way communication sprung the wild'
est rumors of attack upon Washing
ton by a force estimated to comprise .
two-thirds of Lee's army. The origin
al invaders were nearly the whole of
Early's corps, and were said to have
been joined at Edward's Ferry by A.
P. Hill with more than men enough
to make up the traditional forty thous.
and which.used to follow at Stonewall
Jackson's heels. Tuesday and Wed
nesday it was scarcely .doubted that
these combined forces had assailed
the defencesof the Capital. But news
now comes that both railway and tel
egraph are restored, and that near
this Interrupted line .but a single Reb
el, and beialfstarved, can be found.
It seems to have been presumed
that this Rebel demonstration has oc.
casioned a panic among the civil and
military authorities in Washington.
Wo fail to find any evidence of it.
The raid was known to Gen. Grant a
fort-might since, and its purpose com
municated, of coarse, to the Govern.
From the Phila. Press of ,Saturday.
What was the real significance of
the recent raid? When Washington
was isolated from the rest of the ua...
tion, and popular apprehension was
gravest, there were not wanting men,
who :Armed . the - administration and
'its generals for the danger threatening
the National Capital. -There were
plenty of men who took this imperil.
tial view of the matter : We had
been at war over three years for
more than three years we had vainly
endeavored to capture Richmond, and
at length, atter these years of battles
and marches and bloodshed, it was
our own . Capital that was assailed,
beleaguered, and threatened with cap
ture. The injustice of this desponding
view is now fully manifest. The as
pect of the military situation has com
pletely changed within a few days,
and dawn has succeeded the darkness.
If the apprehensions which the Ad
ministration has alwaye entertained
respecting the safety of Washington
seemed to gain confirmation from the
boldness of this last rebel advance, so
also has the confidence which General-
GRANT has felt in the antfety of the Cap
ital been fully justified by the precip
itateness of the rebel retreat. The
"invasion" has dwindled down. to a
"raid," and the raid has really prbved
a failure. • ACCording to 'the best esti
=tea there wore //boat fifteen thous
and rebel infantry in Maryland; yet,
with the exception of the plunder they
carried off, the fifteen thousand infan
try accomplished very little more than
}LARRY GILMORE'S two or three him-',
dred cavalry. They gained some ad
vantage over WALLACE, it is true, and
it is also true that this advantage was
more than counterbalanced by their
repulse at Fort ,Stevens. In fact, all
they did was to alarm and mystify
the North for a couple of days, capture
two generals, who subsequently es
caped, and carryon' a lot of horses and
cows, Yet one other thing they did:
they exhibited the terrible weakness
of their cause and the desperate na
ture of their situation. They never
before had so promising a chance to
take Washington, and can never have
such a chance again, and they could
not take it. They could not even sae-
coed- in impressing General GRANT
with the idea that there was a possi
bility of such a disaster. Nor would
any of us in the North have been de-
luded into such n belief, had they not .
taken the precaution to sever railroad
and telegraphic communication, and
so leave us at the mercy of exaggera
ted rumors as to their strength. It is
clear enough now that they dreaded
lest we should be undeceived in this
particular before they had secured
their booty and departed. So far as
substantial military! advantage .goes
the enterprise was fruitless, and its
failure amounts simply to a confess - -
ion of Southern weakness and a con- .
cession to Northern strength. The
strength and confidence of the North
have never been more plainly or more
gratifyingly exhibited than during the
past two weeks. While a rebel force,
believed to be numerically formidable,
was advancing with rapid strides
against the Capital, GRANT, with his
indomitable legions, lay calmly and:
imperturbably confronting the grim
fortresses of Petersburg. And later
still, when the safety of_ Baltimore.
seemed only assured by the imminent
peril of the National Metropolis, what
was the temper of. the public mind
throughout the Nath ? Except in
Maryland, wo have seen no evidence
that any scare existed ;land except in
the lower counties ofthis State, so very
inviting to rebel incursions, no undue
excitement prevailed. It was not ape.
thy, us somoof the Copperhead papers
asserted. Enthusiastic meetings were
held in this city and elsewhere, and
the call made upon PennsylVania was
responded to with a hearty
promptness sufficient to indicate that
the patriotic spirit of the people is un
flagging. The people were calm, be
cause they placed reliance in their
Government; because they had faith
in the fortifications of Washington,
and in the sagacity and resources of
GRANT. The sequel has shown that
this confidence was not misplaced.
The reflection ought to be agratilying
one, but we cannot regard it us un
qualifiedly auspicious. There was a
time of doubt and gloom, when we
'had too little faith in the power of the
Government; now, it is to bo fared, we
have too much for our own. welfare.
Great Haul of Cattle by the Raiders,
WASHINGTON, July 16.—A farmer
who came in this afternoon . from the
neighborhood of Poolesville, states
.that the rebels stole over 5,000 head of
cattle from the farmers of M.ontgom
ery county, besides 1,000 horses, and
a large number of sheep anti hogs, to
say nothing of poultry, which they
cleaned out completely.
From the first day they crossed the
river they have been driving immense
droves of live stock into :Virginia
across the numerous fords of the upper
river. The forces operating under
Bradley Johnson in the vicinity of
Frederick and Baltimore constantly
sent herds of cattle and hories across
The rebels did little damage to the
growing crops, but took all the .bay
they could find.

While their main infantry force

the north side of Washington, the cav

by Marylanders, was scouring every
nook and corner of the country in
search of live stock, which they.covet

Our informant, who is a very care.
ful man, thinks that not loss than ten
thousand head of oxen, cows, horses,
mules, besides large droves of sheep
and hogs, were'driven across the Po.

or four days they were threatening
Washington. Their infantry was
mounted as quickly as the stolen hor

• The Retreat and the Damage.
BALTIMORE, July 15.—Some know
ing secessionists hero assert that the
entire recent rebel invasion was mere
ly a reconnoissance' to ascertain the
Goveu,nment's position and strength at
Washington and in Maryland. Dis
covering this they merely retired on
the other side of the Potomac, to await
large reinforcements, which when ob
tained, they will invade again' with an
immense army, with Lee in command.
This may be mere braggadocia, but
from what has been already done it
may contain more truth than fiction.
It is well to be'on the alert, and not
again be taken unawares.
If is believed that the recent dam

Other parts of the State, in plunder,
destruction of property, &c., and in

• WASIJINGTON, July 15.—Advices
from the Army of the Potomac to day
indicate that the rebels are meditating
an assault upon General Grant's works,
as they have been cautiously feeling
his lines by skirmishes the past few
days. The rebels seem to imagine
that Grant has been so much weaken
ed by sending treops to Washington
that they can't risk an attack.
Our army is much in hopes that the
rebels will come out to make an attack:
under that impression.. The rebels
have taken advantage of the withdrw

James river, and - yesterday morning
they fired upon the steamers George

ABRAHASI LINCOLN, [a. s-]
WM H. SEWARD,
Gold is Watling
Provisions are (idling ;. The speeu- ,
!etas are in misery. They have ru
led the country long enough, and
their time has home. Many a scamp
who has been !nuking money out of
the necessities of the Government—
pork gamblers, gold gamblers, whis
ky gamblera', gamblers in copper and
oil—witreee in this crash a just and
terrible retribution. This is what the
Tribune says, and we endorse it:
"Rejoice with us, fellow-citizens,
that the bloated, hollow fabric of spec
ulation and exorbitant prices, conjur
ed up by . the joint efforts of avarice
and treason, plainly totters to its full
The premium on gold took a heavy
lurch yesterday, and the prices of
pork, flour, and most other necessa7
ries oflife, tumbled with it. There
never was a tolerable reason, a plausi
ble excuse for carrying gold above 150
or pork above 825, or flour at whole
sale above $8 per barrel, and other
staples in proportion. All beyond
these rates was a gigantic bubble,
blown by treason and rapacity, favor
ed by cowardice. Had our great
banks and leading bankers chosen to
feed the market with gold, even at
the rate of one million per week, for
the last ten or twelve weeks, the
above prices need not have been ex
ceeded. With ten million's deducted
from their gold and twenty millions
added thereby to their greenbacks, the
banks would have stood stronger than
they do to-day, and been better able
to resume specie payments -whenever
the waste of war shall be arrested."
A. Wager Won,
A correspondent from the front re
lates the following :—'"One of the 14th
New York artillery—a Seoeila Indian
I believe, from the Western part of
the State—undertook on a wager to
bring in alive a rebel sharpshooter,
who was perched in a tree in front of
our lines, considerably in advance of
his own. His manner of accomplish
ing this was as ingenious as success
ful., and rivals the 'deviltry' of any of
the Leather-stocking redskins. Pro
curing eoluantity.of pine boughs, he
enveloped himself with thorn from bead
.to: &tot; iifttithing them Securely to a
braneh,; whiehhe lashed lengthwise of
his body: When edmpletied, be was
indistinguishable to a casual observer
froth the'suaroatidiag foliage, and re
.sembled a tree as closely as was pos
sible for his really - artiqic efforts to
render him. Thus prepared, and with
musket in hand, concealed likewise,
be' stole by almost imperceptible
movements to beneath the tree where
the sharpshooter was lodged. Here
he patiently waited until his prey had
emptied his piece at one of our mon,
when he suddenly brought his musket
to boar upon the 'rob,' giving him no
time to reload. The sharpshooter
was taken at a disadvantage. To the
demand to come down he readily as
sented, when the Indian triumphantly
marched him a prisoner into camp,
and won his wager.'
