UNION ENVELOPES, Note Paper and Badges
can be had at Bergner' B Book Store.
A Llama number of horses, purchased on
Government account, have arrived here during
the present week. They are all branded with
the initials "U. S." and are generally fine
looking animals. •
THE CAMERON GUARDS, attached to the First
Regiment, are now in service with their regi
ment guarding the Northern Central Railroad
between Cockeysville and Batimore. One of
the Guard squads, commanded by Lieut. Geo.
W. P. Davis, stationed at St. James bridge, had
a brush with the secessionists a few nights ago.
THE POLLOCK GUARD, of Milton, accompanied
by the Milton Cornet Band, arrived here last
night, to take a look at matters and things In

themselves in readiness to march at a moment's

CAMP Drs.—Many amusing incidents are
happening occasionally at "Camp Curtin."—
The other day a soldier was placed to guard
the store-house on the grounds, but being a
careless sort of a fellow, some of the sharpers
about camp being hungry or greedy (we don't
know which,) took advantage of his careless
ness and stole half a dozen hams from the
place. This loss being discovered, the guard
was arraigned before the proper officer, to give
an account of himself, and to account for the
bacon. The poor fellow plead ignorance of the
whole transaction, and was finally let off with
a reprimand. But " Who stole the ham," is
still a mooted question, and will doubtless for
ever be. Such is camp life.
THE DEATH OF Ma. Marrs°N.—The following
resolutions were passed yesterday after the cer
emonies attending the funeral of Geo. W.
Mattson, the volunteer from Cameron county
who was accidentally shot at Camp Curtin yes
terday morning :
Resolved, That in the death of our comrade,
George W. Mattson, we deplore - the loss of a
steadfast friend, an honest man, a soldier gal
lant and faithful and true. He would have
faced death nobly on the field of honor ; and
whatever fate there may await the rest of us,
we shall ever remember him as having met his
end in the discharge of his duty to his Com
monwealth and county.
Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be
printed in the Harrisburg papers and the Cam
HMS GUARDS.—LittIe importance as some of
our citizens seem to attach to the formation of
these bcdies of Landwehr, there is a significance
which attaches to them that raises them high
above the charge of being organized merely for
amusement, or as vents for the escape of super
abundant patriotism. The Home Guards may,
in time become to the United States what the
National Guard was formerly to France—the
defenders of freedom. That such a band of
men will do much good no one will dispute,
and we therefore are in favor of arming them
efficiently in as short a time as is conveniently
possible. For, in the event of troops being
wanted in a hurry, the necessary reinforce
ments will be ready at hand, drilled, and to
some degree, used to the hardships of a cam
paign. We express ourselves in this manner
with the full knowledge of what is before us,
of the long and severe conflict we are perhaps
called upon to go through ; and would suggest
that while these bodies of men are drilling and
learning to shoot, some means should be used
for their proper organization and arming. We
have now in our city several of these compa
nies ; say some five or six, composed of good
and true men, who if properly encouraged, will
never call for any aid from the Government to
enable them to defend their homes and fire
Are APPEAL TO FARMERS.—We again call the
attention of the people of Dauphin county to
the importance of planting all their available
ground with those essential articles of human
food, coin and potatoes. War is now upon us,
and will doubtless rage with more or less in
tensity for many, months to come. Its des
tructiveness and necessities will combine to
make immense demands upon the producing
capacity of the country. To satisfy the daily
hunger of so many thousands will require an
enormous quantity of grain, while we must
also expect to witness the general devastation
of crops that always follows the movements of
large armies. Regardless of any foreign de
mand that may arise for our breadstuffa—and
these may be very urgent, by the tenor of late
news from Europe—there is a certainty of an
unprecedented market at home. While the
armies of the North are fighting for our liber
ties and the preservation of our Government,
our granaries at home must be kept filled with
necessary food, that they may not suffer at once
the perils of battle and of famine. We urge
every man to raise this summer all he can of
the necessaries of life ; to so manage his land
that the greatest possible amount of summer
crops may be produced. Grain, flour, beef and
pork have been leaving this country in im
mense quantities, and we shall soon have part
ed with every bushel we can spare. It is not
yet too late to plant corn with advantage. If
any man has but another acre that he can pos
sibly get in, for his own sake and the country's
let him plant it without delay. The next week
or two will afford the last opportunity to put
in a crop that will be available the present
year. On no account suffer It to be neg
ACCIDENT.---A young son of Mr. Edward Sto
ver, of Middletown, residing in the east end
of the borough, had his leg broken last wok,
while wrestling with another boy.
THE VERBEKE RlFLES.—Sergeant Lyon, of the
Verbeke Rifles, was in town this morning, and
reports the company still in camp at Lancaster,
and all the members well, and in good spirits.
CONTRACT AWARDED.—The contract for cloth
ug the Pennsylvania troops was awarded yea
erday. The successful bidders are principally
THE MONTOUR RIFLES, Capt. Manley, from
Danville, arrived here, by the canal, last even•
ing, and are quartered at Camp Curtin. The
company wear blue shirts with red trimmings,
presenting a very neat appearance.
GOT THEIR UNIFORMS.—The "State Capital
Guard" still remains at Camp Scott, York.
The company have received their uuiforme,
and are now very comfortably clad. They ex
pect to leave York same time to-morrow.
THE LOAN Bits. published on the outside of
this evening's Telegraph, contains a provision
in reference to the distribution of the military
fund to the families of volunteers serving in
the army, which will no doubt interest those
having that matter in charge in this city.
CANED.-TWO of our Legislative friends, Sen
ator Robinson and Mr. Bressler of the House
were made the receipients of handsome canes
yesterday. That of Mr. Robinson was present
ed by Mr. Ramsdell assistant clerk of the Sen
ate, and that of Mr. BJ essler by Mr. Geo. Bubb.
ATTENTrox!—The members of the "Kepner
Fencibles" are requested to meet at the Ex
change Hall to-morrow evening, at half-past
seven o'clock. All young men desiring to
connect themselves with the company are also
requested to attend the meeting.
By order of the Captain.
LIIMBER.—This article has been arriving
slowly on our shores for some time past, but
the number of rafts of Lumber and Timber is
probably not more than one-fourth what we
have usually here at this time. There is little
if_any demand, and comparitively no sales
made--owners preferring to hold on for more
remunerative prices than those ruling just now.
We hear of quite a number of timber rafts
having been run through to Port, where they
will be tied up to await better times.
DAUPHIN COUNTY MILITARY.—Another mili
tary company, called the Reserve Corps, has
been organized at Middletown by Captain D. J.
Boynton. The following pledge is required of
every man joining the corps :
"I do unhesitatingly, and without reserve,
pledge myself to the service of my country,
and will be ready to march to the defence of
our imperilled Constitution at a moment's
PROGRESS HOME GUARD.—The citizens of the
village of Progress in Susquehanna township,
two miles east of Harrisburg, are about to or
ganize a home guard, and will meet for that
purpose on Saturday afternoon next. This is as
it should be. Let every town, village, hamlet
or cross road in the county get up an organiza
tion of this kind, so that ire case more force is
required to quell the "monster rebellion," it
can be furnished in au hour's notice.
GREAT anis EN notra.—Three 'Columbiads,'
consigned to the care of Major Symington, of
the Pittsburg Arsenal, passed through this city
yesterday. They were fierce loooking bull
dogs, being guns of very long range, and look
ed as if they might be destined to dislodge the
traitors at Harper's Ferry, or to prevent them
from erecting batteries on the shore opposite
Cairo. These guns are ten or twelve feet long,
and though comparatively small in the bore,
are of immense strength.
THE NEXT FOURTH or Jor.r.—lt is highly
probable that the next Fourth of July will
prove to be one of the grandest and most im
posing celebrations ever witnessed in this or
any other country. The patriotism of Union
lovers will then exceed all bounds. We hope
soon to be able to chronicle the fact that ar
rangements are in progress to celebrate the
"glorious Fourth" in the Capital city. Let
there be a grand military, civic, and religious
demonstration—let the bells be rang, the can.
inns fired, fire-works displayed, and a high old
fashioned time generally prevail. The associ
ations clustering around the day will by such a
demonstration at this time awaken in every
bosom a newer and a stronger feeling of love
and veneration for our glorious Union.

A BETTER FEELING. — The public mind seems
to be grdwiug more firm in the conviction that,
although the political and social strife which is
now swee log over, the country may produce
present troubles and distress, the Union will ul
timately be preserved and be better from having
been fully renovated from the foul things as
Davis, Floyd, Toombs and company. This
moral clensing so important to the government
does not prevent the Eureka of dry goods

reasons for considering an acceptance on your
part of Governor Letcher's proposition to pur
chase the steamships Yorktown and Jamestown
recently seized by his order, and now in his
possession, an act of treason.
With this request I readily comply. An in
surrection has broken out in several of the
States of this Union, including Virginia, de
signed to overthrow the Government of the
United States. The executive authorities of
the State are parties to that insurrection, and
so are public enemies. Their action in seizing
or buying vessels to be employed in executing
that design is not merely without the authori
ty of the law, bat is treason. It is treason for
any person to give aid and comfort to the
public enemies. To sell vessels to them
which it is their purpose to use as ships of war
is to give them aid and comfort ; to receive
money from them in payment for vessels which
they have seized for these purposes would be
to attempt to convert the unlawful seizure into
a sale, and would subject the party so offend
ing to the pains and penalties of treason ; and
the government would not hesitate to bring
the offenders to punishment.

And stained the Nation's name of pride.
