Penn=Am has spoken, and her potential
voice will be heard in every quarter of the dis
tracted Union. Through her Executive she
has declared that her path to the beleagured
eapital. is through Maryland, through Balti
more, and If necessary over the dead bodies of
every traitor who attempts to prevent the
march of her troops. Such a determioa
tion was not diotiied by any desire to intimi
date or to overawe the people of Maryland. It
Is not an attempt at coercion or invasion. It
Is not the assertion of a theory, or the idle
boast of a demagogue. It is the voice of the
people of a sovereign State, aroused to Indig
nation by treason, rupioe and murder, speaking
through a fearless Executive. It is the voice of
those who are deter's:dried to maintain the
Union and support the Government. The de
claration of the manage, that the path to the
capital is by the shortest route, and that,Penn
sylvania will follow that path, peaceably if she
can, and forcibly if she must, will be inscribed
on the banners or those . who are sent through
the mop of BiAtimore;that they may know
there lea State and a people iu this Union

shortest notice, a number of the inhabitants of
West Hanover topiusbled recently at Manada
11111 for the ustrtibsti of erecting a glorious Bag
of our Union. That being accomplished, the
meeting was callosity order by appointing Dr.
J. Andrews and *m. 'Heilman, Esq., as Chair
men, and D. H. Eckert and C. B. Landis Vice
Presidents, and J. H. Buckerstown and Dr. A.
if, Vanderslice as Eiiscretories. Jacob Corpman,
Esq., was called upon to address the meeting,
which be did in an eloquent manner, and was
loudly cheered. "ffeigeant James Corbett was
then called uPon, who responded to the call
with his nonfat elotpence. He stated that he
would first offer sonag.resolutions for their con.
Adoration, which he read as follows :
Resolved, That we recommend to the General
Government that any pereons having resigned
their commissions in the army or navy of the
United States since the so called secession of
several States of the Union, or that any person
who may hereafter resign during our difficul
ties with the South, such obeli be immediately
taken into custody and kept in such manner by
the President of the United States as to prevent
them from Misting the rebel army. And lurch -
v, let it be recommended to Congress, meeting
on the fourth of July next, to pass a law pro
viding that tiny person so resigning their com
mission shall be totally disqualified from hold
ing any commission or appointment under the
government of the United States during their
And be it further recommended, That the Legis
lature which Is about to meet at Harrisburg
shall pass a law that if any person now in com
mission as a militia (Auer, or who may hereaf
ter be elected to such office, shall neglect or re
fuge to act in such office, or resign such office
while our difficulties with the South shall con
tinue, every such person shall be incapable of
holding any office of honor, profit or trust in
the State of Pennsylvania forever thereafter.
Provided, however, That if any person so elect
ed should consider himself incapable of laying
to such office, and it should be found sMjr a
Board of Military Officers appointed for that
purpose by the Governor of Pennsylvania , then
such person may be excused from serving in
such office without incurring the above penal
The above resolutions and recommendations
wore passed unanimously, amid loud cheering.
Dr. J. Andrews was next called uponto address
the meeting, which he did in that eloquentand
masterly style for which he is so conspicuous.
in the short address by Serjeant J. Corbort,
he stated that the Bag-raising and cheering was
now past; that action was required, and that all
persons present willing to serve their country,
should form themselves in line. At this call
forty-five responded by declaring themselves
willing to defend their country's rights. It
was then suggested to Sergeant Corbett that the
effigy of the traitors Arnold, Davis and Twiggy,
Mould , be burned, which was immediately done
by oar patriotic friend A. H. Boyer, amid tre
mendous cheers. It was then resolved that the
Proceedings should be published In all the news
papers of Harrisburg, and that all others friend.
ly to the cause should pass them along. Fi
nally the meeting adjourned by giving three
cheers for the patriotic entertainment given by
A. L. Rboadir, 'Bab
&moue Arreev.—Last evening a corporal's
guard armed with muskets and bayonets, seat
from "Camp Curtin" to the city on some duty,
beam intoxicated, and while in this state en
tered' the Fifth Ward Rotel, kept by Mr. John
Raymond, where they got into a dispute with
the proprietor and some of our citizens, which
terminated In the guard making use of their
bayonets, and seriously wounding Mr. Isaac
Maguire and some other man. Mr. Raymond
defended himself with a chair, and with it se
verely injured one of his assailante. The noise
Pt the affray soon brought to tho scene a num
ber of citizens, who succeeded in disarming the
guard and marching them off to the camp,
where they were put under close arrest,
8 0"quently °Meer Fleck repaired to the
cemp, and in company with a file of men,
brought three oethe rioters, identified as the
pri*d assellante, to the cifY, and lodged
them in prison, to await the action of the Civil '
April 80, 1861.
Mum. Eorroas:—l would have written to
you before this, but the camp duties devolving
upon me took so much of my time that I had '
to postpone it until now. The two companies
from Harrisburg have been getting along as
well as could be expected, and but little or no
sickness has occurred among any of the men.
The company to which lam attached, (State
Capital Guards, company I, Second Regiment,)
has had a few on the sick list, but none , of them
were so bad as to be compelled to go to the
hospital. The quarters which we are now In
am quite comfortable, and the only inconveni
ence we experience is ia.the blanketf.that have
been furnished us; they are a-ipoor, misera
ble thing that a man can see through, and in
the morning when the men get up they look as
if they had just come from a bag of hair.. We
hope the Governmentwill furnish us with a dp
cent article.
since our arrival here we have been the re
cipients of many little kindnesses from the citi
zens of Harrisburg, and our members request
me to return thanks through you. The most
precious gift we have received was a splendid
flag, presented by Mrs. Marion Verbeke. At
the presentation the following note was read,
coming from the donor:
Soldiers of the Slate Capital Guard :
' I present to you the Flag of our country, to
be borne by you through fire, and blood, and
death, id defence of that Constitution and
Union under which we have lived so long in
peace, prosperity and happiness, and which, by
the blessing of our Heavenly Father, shall be
transmitted unimpaired and untarnished to our
children and our children's children. May the
God of our fathers, who led them, be with you
to bless you; to bless the cause which you have
so nobly espoused ; and whan peace again
smiles upon our beloved country, and this flag,
which shall receive your kindly protection,
shall be brought back by you, 'may not one
stripe be torn from its sacred folds, or one star
be blotted out. Manua YEERBER.I.
Three times three were given for the donor,
and the men gathered around their standard,
and expressed their determination that so long
as they had arms to strike its folds should not
be dishonored.
To Mr. John KOWA) and to Mr. Wm. Dun
can, each for a box of cigars, our men wish to
return thanks, and to the noble ladies of Har
risburg ,for the little sewing bags, each man
in particular, wishes to return his thanks.
(limp Scott, at present, contains about five
thouned soldiers, the whole under the com
mand of Gen. George C. Wynkoop. I hear
this morning that the First Regiment has been
ordered off,liome say to Philadelphia, but as all
our movemen is are do uncertain, it is to tell
where they are going to. The First Regiment'
are all uniformed and equipped, with the ex
ception of knapsacks. The "Cameron Guard"
are in the first.
Among the seventy:fonr men who left'Har
risburg with our company, four proved their
cowardice by desertion. Their names are
William Henderson, Of Middletown, William
Robinson, John Mullin and Thomas Currey,
the latter from Pottsville. Orders - have been
sent to Harrisburg for their arrest, and should
they be apprehended
_they will undoubtedly
have their heads shaved and drummed out of
the army. R. S. B.
CAMP Sairau.—There are now two regiments
of Pennsylvania Volunteers in "Camp Slifer,"
at Chambersbnrg, under the command of Brig.
Gen. E. C. Williams, of this city. We learn
that the men generally are in excellent health
and spirits, and under the strict military dis
cipline enforced by the General commanding,
are rapidly acquiring the instruction nececeasa
ry to fit them for service in the field.
The following General Order was issued by
Clen. Williams, last Friday :
Near Chambereburg, April 26, 1861.
The General commanding desires to impress
upon the Officers and men the great responsi
bility now resting upon them and the stern
datylbefote them :
You now compose the Second Brigade of the
gallant Pennsylvania Volunteers who have left
their homes, families, friends and freely offer
their lives upon the altar of our country. The
Constitution and Union of these States must be
sustained, or our liberty will be lost and we be
come slaves to anarchy and despotism. No
holier purpose ever marshalled men on the
tented field. The names of martyrs in such a
cause will live forever green in the memory of
future generations. No more inviting field
was ever offered for distinction to the patriotic
and ambitions officer and soldier. You may
be called upon to face the enemy and meet
death, you teal be called upon to endure hard
ships and trials ; but the heroic deeds of your
forefathers should encourage you to emulate
it example,. Obedience is the first du i -of a
dier. Discipline is essential to the f
d strength of , an army, and, it is th i fore
IMperative upon officers and men to obey al'
orders promptly and cheerfully, and, by. con-
stand practice, secure the proficiency requisite,
for perfect operations in the field. It should ..
the pride of every officer and man In the Bri
gade to become perfect, and thus reflect credit
upon yourselves as soldiers and citizens of the
great State whose honor you represent; you are
therefore urged to diligence and energy in at:
tending to your duties, and thus prepare your
selves for the responsibilities imposed by the
contest in which you are engaged. Your du
ties at present will be more arduous until you
attain the desired proficiency, when they will
become a pleasure. It is the desire of the Gen
eral commanding to point to the officers and
men of his command as an [evidence of what
can be accomplished by strict obedience, con
etant practice, and cheerful devotion to duty.
He will take pleasure in refering to you as the
moat efficient, ann best disciplined of the Bri- .
gadee of Pennsylvania Volunteers now or
ganized. E. C. WILLIAMS,
Brig. Oen. Cam.

Tae slaking of the steam frigate Merriman at
Annapolis is accounted for by the statement
that, in consequence of insubordination on
board, it was impossible to get her tO Bea, and
that she was consequently burned at Norfolk
with other vessels.
MI Norfolk Da Book says that Got. Let
oher, of Virginia, has found it necessary to
fume a proclamation, requesting the - Soup:Len'
troops not to rush so impetuously to arms, but
to' remain at home until called out by au ,

At the close, Hon. Val. Hummel, one of the

Made a few brief remarks, giving the .origin of
the "titers and Stripes," and showing how great
the privileges the rising generation enjoy. He
alluded to the enthusiasm manifested at the

unfurled in those sections of our unhappy coun

closed by proposing three cheers for our Na

BALTIMORE Civv.—We are permitted to pub
lish the following extract from a private letter
written by a gentleman of Baltimore to a friend
In this city :
"We hope Pennsylvania will not think be
cause an infernal, cowardly secession mob and
crowd of rowdies outraged humanity, Christianity
and patriotism, as was the case here on last
Friday week, that there are no Ehnen men here,
as such Is not the case, as the will
tell if we ever get a vote on the question. As it
seems by Wednesday's vote for recession Demo
cratic delegates, without any opposition at all,
there were onyl 9,200 votes polled out of 81,000
last hall, only a majority of 21,800 against
them—you'll hear a different report from Bal
timore soon."

Tam Emmen OF ME Crrv.—By tho report of
Heather 'Hage, Esq., Chief Engineer of the
Commissioners to survey and prepare a map of

for building purposes within the city limits east
of the Susquelutrina river of one thousand two
hundred and fifty-seven and four-tenths acres,
exclusive of the island of Gen. John Froster,
which is also suitable for building p urposes,
and which contains fourteen and six-tenths
The "EL Psasso."—Not the least of the ob
jects of interest at "Camp Curtin" is the brass
six pound cannon—the El Pegaso—captured at
the battle of Cerra-Gordo, April 19th 1847 by
the American army under the command of
Gen. Scott, and presented to the State by Maj.
Gen. Patterson. It is a beautiful piece; and if
an occasion presents itself will do good service
against Southern rebels.
DECLINATION. —Geo. B. elected Colo
nel of the Tenth Regiment Pennsylvania Vol
unteers, declined that position yesterday. A
new election was held, when S. A; Meredith,
the former Major of the regiment, was elected
Colonel, and Capt. Richard White elected

—Baltimore funds were sold largely in Phila
delphia on Friday last at 26 per cent. discount:

temperature of the Monumental City.
VERY Cans:rms.—The men stationed by the
city as sentinels at the reservoir are very care
less in handling their muskets. The grounds
around are thoroughfares to Csiop Curtin, and
the neglect to keep the muzzles of their guns
pleitited, may reknit In`an accidental discharge
