TO W ANDA:
Thursday Morning, May 29, 1862.
THE WILMOT PROVISO COMPLETE.
The Colcmbia Republican says :—The Hon.
D. WILMOT has lived to see the day when the
great principles he advocated when in the oth
er branch of Congress are adopted by a de
cided vote and applied to all the Territories of
the United" abates dow existing, or hereafter
to be formed or acquired in any way. The
world moves. This vote was taken in the
United States House of Representatives, on
Mouday of last week. The following is the
" AN ACT to secure freedom to all persons within the
territories of the United States.
" Be it enacted. That slavery or involnntary servitude
in all cases whatsoever, except in punishment for crime
(-whereof- the persons shall be duly convicted,) shall
henceforth cease, am! be prohibited forever, In all the
territories of the United ftates now existing, or hereaf
ter to be formed or acquired in any way."
And why was this act passed ? Not so
much because it is the true policy, as from
the fact that a year of war made by the slave
owners upon the Government of the United
States has satisfied Congress that an institu
tion causing our National troubles shall not
be extended. The slaveholders rebellion has
had the effect of giving Congress the courago
to declare that the extension of the institution
shall be 44 prohibited forever."
THE LATEST WAR NETVS.
The President has issued an order by which
be takes military possessions of all the rail
roads in the United States, and direct that all
the railroad companies, their officers and ser
vants, shall hold themselves in readiness for
the transportation of troops aud munitions of
war as may be ordered by the military author
ities, to the exclusion of all other basiuess.
The news from Gen. McClellan's columns
recounts a brilliant skirmish which followed
np the affair pt New Bridge. It occurred at
the village of Ellison's Mills, from which our
troops drove the rebels in coufusion. This ac
tion placed Mechanicsville in onr possession, a
point only five miles from Richmond. The
railroad bridge on the road fiom Fredericks
burg to Richmond was destroyed by onr sol
diers. General McClellan visited Mechauics
ville after its occupation by his troops on Sat
Rumors reached Fortress Monroe from
Newburn on Saturday that Raleigh, the capi
tal of North Carolina, had been captured a
few days previous, and the United States flag
was then floating over the city. No particu
lars, however, had been received.
Despatche from Cape Girardeau, Missouri,
informs ns of the capture of a rebel steamer,
named the E. D. Liller, brand down the St.
Francis river, laden with stores for Memphis,
and carrying a company of rebel troopsr Her
passage was arrested by Colonel Daniels, at
Camp Lagrauge, wLo riddled her with a six
ponnder gnn, killing Lieutenant Col. Lewis
and wounding several others. The soldiers,
numbering sixty, were taken prisoners.
Tho attack of the rebel Generals, Jackson
and Ewell, in great strength, on the forces of
General Banks at Winchester, which caused
the latter to fall back toward Martinsburg.and
finally across the river at Williamsport, is the
leading feature of the news to day. The ab.
solute necessity of the rebels' procuring food
and munitions of war no doubt compelled them
to mako this dash to recover a foot hold In the
fruitful valley of the Shenandoah. With
prompt reinforcements, which will, of coune (
be furnished to General Banks, the ground
lost by this raid ot the rebels may be won
back. Nor were we entirely unprepared for
snch a movement on the part of the enemy in
that vicinity, who have been for some time
past rendered desperate for waDt of provis
It !s now plainly manifested that the rebels
arc perfectly conversant with our movements

PEKNSYLYANIAXS IN THE FlEl.r>. —PenDsylvan
ia has oue hundred and fifteen regiments en
rolled, of which all but one are in active ser
vice. The latter is nearly fuli and will be ready
to take the field in a few days. The total
nunsber in the service of the State is given at
one hnudred and thirteen thousands,of which,
however, it is safe to say there are not more
than one hundred thousand now ou duty, if,
indeed there be quite so many. Tne condition
of the Peonsjlvania troops is ail that could be
desired. They are in a high state of discipline,
aDd are provided with everything essential
to their comfort and efficiency. Besides the
immense force which the State has equipped
and put in the field, the artillery arm of the
service has been greatly strengthened, until
ao we doubt if there be a State in the Un
ion that can, in this respect, compare with us.
Alt the old gaos have beeu remounted and
fitted for service, acd, eR they stand ranged

able appearance. It is the intention to send
these guns to Philadelphia, where they will

A dispatch to the Philadelphia Press dated
ed Washington, May 23, says :— 41 How to
enforce the fugitive slave law to the District
of Colombia, is one of President Lincoln's
great troubles. The stampede of the slaves
in the border counties of Maryland and Virgin
ia has created much alarm among their owners
most of whome have distinguished themselves
by open and frequent instances of disloyalty to
ibe Fderal Government. The queotion aris
es whether these slaveholders have any right
to- claim the benefits of a law when most of
them are known to be opposed to the Govern
ment itself? Senatoi Wilmot, in order to
meet this question, introduce into the Senate
this morning a bill, a condensation of which is
appended. It is but just to Senator Wilmot
to say that, with all hts strong anti-slavery
feelings, be has never proposed any measnre
the* could interfere with the fanchises of loy
al slaveholders But it is right that the own
ers of slaves in oar border counties should first
prove their own loyalty, before taking the ad
vantage of the laws of the United States.
BILL INTBOBCCED BT Mil. WILMOT, AND REFERRED TO
COMMITTEE 05 DISTRICT OF COLCNIUA.
Section 1 provides that, before any process shall lssne
for the surrender of an alleged tugitive. the claimant
shall, in addition to the oath now required, make oath
that he will support the Constitution and Government of
the United States against all enemies, foreign or domes
tic ; that he has not given countenance, aid. or comfort,
to the present rebellion, by word or deed, but has at all
times been loyal and true to the Government of the Uul
Section 2 provides that in the Territories or District of
Columbia, and all places under the exclusive jurisdiction
of the United States, it shall be lawinl for persons of col
or to make complaint before any magistrate, against any
white person who shall attempt to kidnap'any person of
color, or who shall assault or commit any other violation
of the rights of person or property of such colored per
son or property of such colored person, and, upon con
viction, the offender shall in all respects be dealt with
as if the offence had committed against a white per
son. The evidence ot persons of color is to be taken in
all proceedings under this section, to have the same force
and effect as if given by a white person.
THE COMMON* SCHOOL LAW. —The farther
supplement to the Common School law, passed
at the last session of the Legislature, provides
in addition to making twenty-two days the
school month, that the President and Secreta
ry of a School Board can file a certificate of
the indebtedness of the collector of the School
Tax, in the Prothouotary's office, and the cer
tificate will have the same operation as a judg
ment. The County Superintendent, before en
tering on his duties, 6hall swear or affirm that
he will perform the duties of his office honest
ly, impartially, obediently aud according to
law. Section 16 authorizes the trustees of
any accademy or seminary in this Common

frocr for educational purposes, by deed of not
less than two thi.ds of their number, to con

and funds of, or belonging thereto, to the

requires that the Board of Directors, shall

DEATH OF GENERAL W. H. KElM —Brign.
dier General W. H. Keim died at the Brady
House, in Ilarrisburg, on Monday afternoon,
a week, at one o'clock. He was brought to
Harrisburg three or four days previous, labor
ing under a combined attack of typhoid fever
and dysentery. On Saturday he commenced
sinking so rapidly as to leave no hope, and his
relatives were telegraphed for, many of whom
were present when he breathed his last.
At the breaking oat of the rebellion Gen.
Keim held the office of Surveyor General of
the State, but accepted the position of Major
General from Gov. Curtin, and was in Gen.
Pattersou's division during the three months'
Last fall he was appointed a Brigadier Gen
eral by the President, when be resigned bis
office. He was present at the taking of York
town, and also at the battle of Williamsburg,
but too ill to participate in the latter.
Gen. Keim was a native of Reading, to
which place bis remains were taken on Tues
day for interment. He was 49 years of age,
and leaves a large family to mourn his loss.
A copy of the New Orleans Price Cur
rent embracing a summary of the year's busi
ness ending March 1, 1862, has been sent to
the Navy Department by one of the officers of
the Gulf Squadron. It appears from this jour
nal that the exports of cotton from New Or
leans for the past year have beeu eleven thou
sand bales, against one aud a half million
bales the previous year. The exports from all
the Southern ports have been only thirteen
thousand bales, against more than two millions
the previous year. Exports of tobacco from
New Orleans nothing, against seventeen thou
sand hogsheads last year. Imports—specie,
nothing, against twelve million dollars the pre
vious year ; coffee, three hundredfbags, against
two hundred and two hundred and fifty thou
sand bags ; salt, nothing, against five hundred
16?-One reason, says Parson Brownlow,
why the rebels keep np tbeir spirits so well, is
because of the unblushing lies of the leaders
and newspapers. The latter copy bogus ex
tracts said to be from New York papers, stat
ing that we are here on the verge of famine ;
that mob law and bread riots prevail in the
oorth ; that Chase aud Seward resigned a week
or two ago, because President Lincoln would
persit in his undue love for the bottle, and was
always too drank to do anything and the Fed
eral Goverumeut was drafting troops from
Maino and .Massachusetts and New York,
whereat there was great dissatisfaction in those

GEN. BANKS' OFFICIAL REPORT
HEADQCAKTEKS MARTINSBCKO. May 25—2:40 r. u.
Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War:
The rebels aitacked us this morning at day
breuk in great force. Their force was estimat
ed at 15.000, consisting of Ewell's and Jack
sou's divisious. The fire of the pickets began
with the light, uud was followed by the artil
lery uutil the lines were fully under fire on both
sides. The left wing stood firmly, holding its
ground well, aud the right did the same for a
time, when two regimeuls broke liues under
the fire of the enemy.
The right wing fell back and were ordered
to withdraw, and the troops passed through
the town iu considerable confusion. They were
quickly reformed on the other side, and contin
ued their march in good order to Martinsburg,
where they arrived at twenty minutes to three,
p. M , a distance of twenty-two miles.
Our trains are in advance and will cross the
river in safety. Our entire force engaged was
less than four thousand, consisting of Gordon's
and Donnelly's brigades, with two regiments
of cavalry under General Hatch, aud two bat
teries of artillery.
Our loss was considerable, as was that of
the enemy, but cannot now be stated. We
were reeuforeed by the Fifteenth Maine,which
did good service, and a regiment of cavalry.

After three-fifths of his army had been sent
to reiuforcc Gen McDowell, from thesupposed
approach of l ae rebel forces under Jackson and
i Ewell at Fredericksburg, it appears now that
the supposition of Gen McDowell that Jack
! son and Ewell were pressing upon his front
i was incorrect, and that at the very moment
; when he called for these reinforcements v these
rebel Generals were still hovering about Gen.
Banks' positiou, and were not within sixty
miles.-or several days' march of Fredericks
The great cause cf rpgret here is that the
rich valley of the She.iandoah. which had been
recovered by the advance of Gen Banks driv
ing Jackson step by step before him from Win
chester to w thin ten miles of Staunton, should
he again abandoned to the ruids of the rebels
without having accomplished anything.
Prompt efforts have been mude to succor

THREATENED RIOT AT BALTIMORE.
BALTIMORE. May 25, 1862.
The city has been in a state of intense ex
citement through the day. News of the disas
ter to Colonel Cenly's First Maryland regi
ment, at Front Royal, occasioned intense
feeling, and when the secessionists commenced
to congregate at the corners this morning with
radient faces and words of rojiicing, they were
attacked and beaten. During the day at least
a hundred have been knocked down in differ
ent parts of the city, though the police inter
fered and prevented any fatal results. In one
or two cases ropes were brought out and pre
parations made for hanging parties to lamp
posts. Two men were stabbed, but not dan
gerously. Among those attacked was Robert
McLaoe, late Minister to Mexico, who was
saved by the police.

It is estimated there are now in Norfolk and
Portsmouth not less than 1,000 deserters from
the force with which Gen. Huger left Norfolk.
Those that have coine in, and are still arriving
in squads of ten aud twenties, did not succeed
in escaping until after they reached Peters
burgh. They are iu a most deplorable eoudi

have escaped from the rebel army.

The walls of the Navy yard building are in

numbered 1,300. Our loss is ten killed, forty
wounded and eight missing. The loss of the

Affairs in Norfolk.
BALIMOKE, Saturday May 24.
The following is taken from the American
special Fortress Monroe correspondence :
" There is but little change in the condition
of affairs at Norfolk. The Mayor and mem
bers of the City Councils still refuse to tuke
the oath of allegiance. Gen Wool had an in
terview with thvm yesterday, but they coutin
ued in the sulks, so that he now refuses all in
-le.'course with the people of Norfolk and
Portsmouth. Even the little business they
have been doing in the way of strawberries
and peas, is now stopped.
Gen. Wool sent up a proclamation to Nor
folk this morning, notifying the people that
the matter was eulirely in their own hands.—
So soon as they would acknowledge the
supremacy of the Government, they will enjoy
its fostering aid, but while they remain in their
present rebellions mood they wili be cut off
from all advantages of trade and commerce,
and the city will be governed by strict martial
law. He also assures them that uo contin
gency can possibly arise whereby Norfolk will
again be given up to the control of the rebel
government, and that thoae who entertain
Union sentiments can give expression to them,
with ample assurance of the protection of all
their rights as citizens of the United States.
Most of tbe stores are now open and the
sale of such goods as they have is progressing.
As lar as can be ascertained, no one is now
willing to receive Confederate notes at par.—
Business is mostly done in small notes of the
Virginia banks and other chartered corpora
tions. Government notes are received with
The Union men of Norfolk still hold hack,
afraid to express sentiments openly in defiance
of the rebellious spirit around them.
Quite an enlhusiastieUnion meeting was held
at Portsmouth on Thursday night. Not less
thau 800 were present, including tnany Union
men from Norfolk.
The course of the Government in refusing to
allow provisions to come there for loyal people
was severely criticised, and the propriety of
such a course by no means approved. The
scarcity of provisions and necessaries of life are
so great, and prices so high, that the poorer
classes have to live almost entirely on fish and
The Secessionists are nearly all wealthy
people, who can stand high prices and have
laid in their stocks long since.
There is no doubt that the decision of Gen.
Wool is leading to great suffering among the
poorer classes. They have suffered beyond
endurance for a year past, and when the old
flag was again hoisted they hailed it with de
light, and naturally expected speedy relief from

DEAR * * * : I have just sigued the en

ident of the Senate, and that of the President
of the United State*, are attached. The long
struggle for Land for the Landless is at last
cons - in muted.
Ten years ago the 12tb of this month, the
first Homestead bill passed the House, and it
has beeu steadily pressed upon the attention
of Congress ever since, lis Iriends are inure
indebted for success to the unwuvering support
given it by the Tribune than to aught else.

AIL the Lands owned by the Government
are open to settlement under it in quantities
not exceeding 160 acres to each person.
Any persoti who is a citizen of the United

such, who is twenty one years old or the head
of a family, or has served in the military or
naval service of the country during this Rebel
lion, can make the entry 011 payment of ten
dollars, and the fees of the Register and Re
ceiver of the Land Oftice. That is all the set

The act takes effect the first of January
next, and requires a residence aud cultivation
of five years to perfect the title.
Any person can enter, under, this act, land
on which he has a pre emption claim.
This Congress is redeeming in good faith all
its pledges to the People. What you said of

seem to the country to move slowly, but no

complished so much, for the greatness aud
glory of the Republic.

BF.AURFOARD'S PROCLAMATION. —That great
rebel chieftain, General Beauregard, has got
hold of an order, purporting to be issued by
General Butler at New Orleans, stating that
Southern women, who insult our soldiers, shall
be treated as harlots. Beauregard is making
a great fuss about this order,and has written a
proclamation upon the Ml' j vet, which ho causes
to be read at every dress parade of his troops
Now, in the absence of any official information
upon the subject, we take the liberty ot doubt
ing that General Butler has ever issued such 1
an order. Beauregard i-. a finished and turcom
plislied romancer, and this order appear
very much like one of his usual inventions.—
It is of precisely the same character as hi
story about the " beauty and booty."
e&T Pennsylvania has less regiments in th>
field than New York, ut.d yet Pennsylvania
iias more men in the service of the country.—
It is accounted for by the fact that the Nc
York regiments are ail below the maximum
number of those from this State, aud thus,with
less men than Pennsylvania it requires more
money to pay the New York troops, for this
reason : New York, with more regiments,has
more regimental and brigade officers to pay.
CaT* Gen. Beauregard has issued orders
that be would treat any person or corporation
as disloyal to the rebel confederacy who would
refuse to accept Confederate uotes at par, or
who iu any degree endeavored to discredit the
operations of the rebel government. A large
amouut of sickness is prevalent among the sol
diers in Richmond.
Over nine thousand shells were thrown
by the fleet in the bombardment of the fo-ts
below New Orleans. Most of them were thir
teen inch shells, which costs, with their filling
twenty dollars each or one hundred aud eighty
housand dollars for shells alone.
S& m The expedition to New Mexico is
about to start. It will consist of the First.

and Thirteenth Wisconsin regiments,the whole
