CAMP CURTIN.—There are * now about thirty
companies in Camp Curtin, many of them not
full, and none of them equipped.

THE MORNING TELEGRAPH, of which we print
a daily edition of over three thousand, circu
lates largely in all the towns along the lines of
the various railroads leading from this city.
The readers of our morning edition aro furnish
ed with all the important telegraphic news
several hours in advance of the Philadelphia
and New York morning dailies.
MEDICAL BOAHD.—According to the late act
of our State Legislature, in relation to the
complete organization of the army, an Army
Medical Board of three distinguished surgeons
will be convened in Harrisburg this week, for
the careful and thorough examination of all
applicants for the appointment of surgeons.
and assistant surgeons in the army of the
Pennsylvania volunteer service.
PAY OF SOLDIERS.—The volunteers who have
been mustered into the service of the United
States can get no money until after the meet
ing of Congress, and an appropriation has been
made for that purpose. A point should be
strained to meet the case. There are many of
the volunteers who left lucrative situations in
their patriotic desire to serve their country,
whose families depend upon their earnings for
subsistence, and who are not prepared to await
the action of Congress for their money.
BORDER CAMPS. -It is reported that addition
al camps along the border—in Bedford and
Fayette counties—have been ordered, where
the volunteers will be instructed in military
duties, and at the same time be on hand to
repel the rebels should they be so fool hardy as
to invade the soil of Pennsylvania. Those pro
posed at Erie and Easton have been abandoned
as being too far from the scene of action to an
swer the purpose. Before the troops could
march from Easton or Erie, the secessionists
could devastate the whole border, and retreat
into their own country.
MILITARY BRIM FUND. —The County Com
missioners of Dauphin county advertise for a
loan of ten thousand dollars, under the late
law authorizing them to "appropriate a certain
sum of money for the support of the families
of volunteers during the present war." We
have no doubt some of our patriotic capitalists
will furnish the money at once. The Relief
Committee having disbursed the funds placed
at their disposal, prompt action is necessary,
inasmuch as the families of some of our absent
volunteers are in exceedingly destitute circum
stances, and depend mainly upon the relief
fund to subsist themselves and children.
ACCEPTED.-It affords us pleasure to announce
that the Kepner Fancibles of this city, Capt.
Samuel Wilt, have been accepted by the Gov
ernor, and are now making preparations to go
into camp. The company is composed of men
who will make good soldiers, and their com
manding officer is a gentleman of military ex
perience well fitted for the position. This
makes the fifth company accepted from Har
risburg, so that our city will be well repre
sented in the "war for the Union." The ranks
of the Fencibles are not quite lful, and young
men desirous of joining the company will have
an opportunity of doing so by attending the
meeting at Exchange Hall this evening.
A SUGGESTION TO THE COIIHISSARIAT.—It is the
intention of the government that its soldiers
should be supplied with wholesome food, in
sufficient quantity and in good variety. It oc
curs to us that, at this season of the year, it
would be well if fresh fish were included in the
rations issued to the soldiers, and that it should
be substituted for meet once or twice a week.
Aside from its being palatable and healthy food,
there are large numbers of volunteers who,
under their religious faith, will not be persuad
ed to eat meat on one day in each week. Any
comment on this suggestion should be neces
sary, as it will doubtless commend itself to the
understanding of every one. And, when fish
are so abundant and cheap in almost ever lo
cality where troops are encamped, we think it
would be wise policy to make provision for sup•
plying soldiers with this sort of food.
A RARE TREAT.—This afternoon a large
sized store box, filed with provisions furnish
ed by numerous ladies of this city, was forward
ed to the State Capital Guards at Chambers
burg, in charge of a special " commiasariate."
The contents of the box comprise large
supplies of home-made pies bread and rolls, mam
moth pound cakes, dough-nuts and fat cakes,
ginger -bread and buscuit, butter and eggs,
boiled beef tongues and bolognas, radishes and
onions, pickles of various kinds, potatoes, a
basket of salad, and other delicacies] "too
numerous to mention." The boys will have
at least one more good " feed" before leaving
the old Keystone to invade traitor territory ;
and whatever hardships and privations they
may have to endure hereaftk r in defending
the honor of their country's flag, it will
be a consolation to know that, "though
absent they are not forgotten," especially by
the patriotic women of the Capital City, whose
warm heerts beat time to the mueic of the
Union, and sympathise with the gallant men
who have gone forth to battle for its preserva
tion. A list of the names of contributors ac
companies the generous donation.
MORE TROOPS FOR CAMP SLIFER.—Two more
regiments from Camp Scott went to Chambers
burg last, night. The Scott Legion and three
other regiments will leave Philadelphia to
night and pass through this city en route for
the same point.
lamnovnic.-111r. George VT. Starry, who
was accidentally wounded by a musket shot at
Camp Scott last Saturday, accompanied the
State Capital Guards to Chambersburg. He is
improving rapidly and will be able to go on
duty again in the course of a few days.
THE LADIES FOR THE UNION.—The right of
suffrage for women is now advocated for the
following reason :
" In certain districts as we note,
Our women claim the right to vote!
Grant them the boon, 0! legislators,
And 'save the Union' from its traitors;
For women—whatso' er their traits—
Will never vote for separate states!
THE COUNTRY presents a gorgeous appearance
just now, and we can realize to its full extent
all that has been sung or written of the season
of flowers and singing birds. In the beautiful
language of the poet :
"O'er the moistened fields
A tender green spread; the bladed grass
Shoots forth exuberant; th' awaking trees,
ihaw'd by the delicate atmosphere, put forth
F.xpantling buds; while, with mellifluous throat,
'I lie warm ebullience of eternal joy,
The birds hymn forth a song of gratitude
To Ulm who silenced when the storms were deep,
And fed them through the winter's cheerless gloom."
REUGNED. -It is rumored here that Wm. B.
Sipes bas resigned the Captaincy of the Stale
Capital Guards, of this city, and that he is to
be succeeded by first Lieut. Henry Davis. The
company will be benefited by the change.
Lieut. Davis served through the whole Mexi
can campaign with great credit. and possesses all
the qualifications• requisite fur a good soldier
and a successful officer, We congratulate him
upon his promotion Of the five members of
the Davis family in the volunteer service, three
hold prominent official positions 'in their respec
SERXED RIORT.—Last evening a stranger
whose appearance indicated him to be a gentle
man, but whose actions proved him to be
a ruffian and blackguard, made insulting
advances to a respectable young woman,
while passing up Third street on her way home.
The fact was communicated to a male relative
of the lady, who started in pursuit of and over
took the fellow, and inflicted upon him such a
castigation as his ruffianly act deserved. Some
other "lewd fellows of the baser sort," who in
duhe in similar practices, would be benefited
by the same kind of treatment.
THE CAMPBELL ARTILLERISTS, who have been
in camp for several days, left this afternoon for
Pittsburg, where they will be equipped, provided
with horses, and mustered into active service
at once. This morning the services of the
company were tendered for three years and ac
cepted. A few of the men declined going for
three years, but their places were promptly
supplied. The retiring -members of the com
pany, who are in a ragged condition and entire
ly destitute of money, marched to the Capitol
to-day, an I wade application to the Governor
for pay tor their services up to this time. We
did not learn the result of the conference.
N. B —After the above was written the order
for the marciring of the Artillerists was coun
termanded, and the company returned from
railroad depot to their quarters in Camp Cur
Beaus POLICE OFFICERS. —lt has been intimat
ed to us that certain individuals in no way
connected with the police or constabulary de
partment of the city, mike a practice of repre
senting themselves as officers, and by threats
extorting "hush money" from keepers of cer
tain disreputable institutions. Inebriated
strangers are also victimized by these "bogus"
police officers, and made to "bleed" freely tin
der threats of being taken to the lock-up. Our
informant is the Chief of Police. If his state
ment be true, (and we have no reason to doubt
it), this system of fraud and imposition has
been practised extensively and successfully
within a few weeks. if the Chief knows these
fellows, in justice to the public he is bound to
give publicity to their names, and have them
arrested. Such acts of scoundrelism ought not
to go unexposed and unpunished.
MARYLAND HOSPITALITY,-011r volunteers are
lavish in their praises of the hospitality of the
people of Maryland. One of them writes as
"We are as well treated as if we were at
home. You can form no idea of the kindness
of the people. A day or two since we were
short of provisions, and the fact somehow got
abroad.. In a very brief space of time we were
abundantly supplied, the neighbors sending us
in basket after basket of bread, pies, butter
and other articles. The ladies are especially
attentive, and have sent us large supplies. Be
sides this, we have standing invitations to visit
the neighboring houses, and make ourselves at
home whenever we feel disposed to do so. Go
where we will we are always welcome, and our
frequent refusals to accept cause sincere regret.
If what we witness here is a specimen of South
ern hospitality, I can cordially endorse it as
the real thing. There is nothing bogus about
DESTITUTION AND DICATIL-A. few mornings
ago a poor diseased wanderer, "by friends and
fortune quite disowned," was found dead in a
barn in Lancaster county, where he had passed
the night, for want of better accommodations.
The following Copy of a paper, found on the
person of the deceased, fully explains the cause
of his death :
"Paul Grauer, suffering under "tuberculo
sis,' is not able to work, and therefore recom
mended hereby to the charity of the public in
general. C. BEEKEN, hi. D.

comes quickly, I say my name is G. F. L. Paul
Grauer, from Backnang, Kingdom Wurtem
burg. Should this happen, I would like that
the Philadelphia German Democrat would pub
lish the same among his other re UL ports.
The deceased was well dressed and had the
appearance of a man who had seen better days.
If he has friends among the Germans of this
city, they can procure further information by
addressing Deputy Coronor J. C. Snyder, Lan

THE KEPNER FENCIELES Will meet this evening
at Exchange Hall. A few good able bodi d
men may yet obtain admission. The company.
has been accepted. A full attendance is de
sired. • SAMUEL Wier, Captain.
A FEMALE SIIOP-LIFTER, while examining
goods in a Market street dry goods store, under
pretence of desiring to purchase, was detected
in the act of concealing some articles in the
folds of her ample crinoline. She was repri
manded by the merchant and dismissed from
the store. She was fortunate in getting off
without exposure and punishment.
CAGED.—One of the "bummer" tribe, while
under the influence of corn-juice, went into the
house of Mr. Slaymen, in Market street beyond
the canal, and insulted the female inmates.
The fellow was arrested and taken before the
Mayor, where ha gave his name as Edwin
Spayd. His Honor sent him to the reformatory
institution for four days.
MORE VOLUNTEERS. —The troops in Camp
Curtin were this afternoon reinforced by the ar
rival of two companies—the Scott Infantry,
Capt. Dare, of Huntingdon county, and a com
pany from Lock Haven under command of
Capt. Lyman. The members of the former
were fully equipped in their company uniform,
and presented a fine appearance on their march
through this city to camp.
FEMALE TRIM—SHARP OPERATION OP A BOGUS
OFFICBIL—A woman, whose name we did not
learn, while stopping in the house of &Ir. Sny
der, lager beer seller, stole sixty-five dollars of
that gentleman's money from a bureau drawer.
We are informed by the Chief of Police and
Constable Wickert that the woman was subse
quently arrested, with the money in her
possession, by one of the "bogus" police officers
alluded to in another article, who extorted
from her five dollars of the stolen money, and
then released her. All efforts to ascertain the
present whereabouts of the woman have proved
abortive. If the "bogus" constable referred to
is really guilty of the swindling act charged
against him by the above named officers, their
failure to expose him will subject them to the
general and just censure of community.
ANOTHER GENEROUS DONATION. —This morning
the Wayne Independent Rifles, of Chester coun
ty, Captain Taylor, from Kennett ,Square, now
is Camp Curtin, were presented, by Mrs. C.
Pelan, with a fine lot of vegetables, consisting
of onions, radishes and potatoes, also a goodly
supply of butter, a delicacy uutasted for weeks
by the company. This gift, accompanied as it
was by the prayer of the donor, was highly
acceptable to this noble body of men, who
have given up the comforts of home and ten
dered their services for a torn. of throe years
to the General Government in the hour of
need, regardless of the hardships and dangers
they are about to encounter, from a sense of
duty and a desire to have our glorious Union
perpetuated for all time, even as it was handed
down to us by our forefathers. In the absence
of Capt. Taylor, Lieut. C. Hall immediately
mustered his men, who, after presenting aims,
gave nine hearty cheers for the generous donor.
They afterward adopted the following resolu
Whereas, Mrs. C. Pelan has presented to the
Wayne Independent Bides, of Chester county,
such a desirable gift, the thanks of the entire
company are due to the &nor.,
Resolved, That the foregoing be sent to the
Harrisburg TELEURAPH for publication.
Resolved, That second Lieutenant E. Dixon
be directed to see the above carried into effect.
No finer looking or more intelligent body of
men than the Wayne Rifles have offered t hem
selves to the General Government from this
State, and the company is among the most ef
ficient in Camp Curtin. They are au ornament
to the army and a credit to the good old pa

and four pieces of artillery, formed to-day an
entrenched camp near the mouth of James
river and about ten miles from this post across

like Sewell's Point, is in plain Eight of the
ramparts of Fortress Monroe. The roadstead
is there about three miles wide.
One object of the entrenched camp is to
command Sand Island which is about midway
between and completely guards the entrance
to James river. Generall3utler was fearful that
the rebels would take possession of the Island.
Newport news also commands, to a great ex
tent, the Peninsula between Jamis and York
rivers. A large force is to be assembled there,
and so important a movement is likely to meet
opposition. Only a few persons were seen at
the Point. There was evidently great activity
at Sewell's Point. Hampton is nearly deserted.

state that there are from 7,000 to 9,000 men at

Gen. Beaureg uard had not arrived there.
The Louisiana and Georgia troops were the

Butler was worth fifty cents end hams twen

that their intention was simply to defend Graf

entertained that an attack on Wheeling was
The cavalry are reported to have been well
armed and equipped, while the infantry had
twelve wagon loads of arms in their charge.
Among the troops sent from Wheeling are
several Pittsburghers, and if the rebels show
tight, they are likely to have a warm time of
it. The result of the expedition will be looked
for with anxiety.
The Wheeling lnielligencer makes no allusion
to the movement on Grafton further than to
hint that the men at "Camp Carlisle" might
soon be called into active service. The tele
graph office there has been seized by the gov
ernment, and it may be some time before de
tails of the expedition reach us. It is barely
possible however that by this time the entire
Secession lorces at Grafton may have been cap
tured. On Sunday the secessionists burned two
of the Railroad bridges between Farmington
and Ilannington, on the Baltimore road, and
later in the day the reports were that they were
busy tearing up the track at different points
between those places and Grafton. The con
