ARRIVAL OF MILITARY.
THREE REGIMENTS FROM PHILADELPHIA
The Scott Legion, Col Grey—lrish Regiment,
Col. Owen—and the German Regiment, Col.
Bellair, arlived in this city this morning.—
When we wrote this paragraph we were uncer
tain as.to their destination, but presume they
are on the march to Chambersburg.
Two Regiments of troops from Elmira, N.
Y., were aiso to arrive here this morning, as
we learn by telegraph from that quarter. The
destination of these troops, it is supposed, is
the same as those front Philadelphia.

FRAUD AND PECULATION.
The public mind has been greatly exercised
by the numerous rumors in respect to the
frauds alleged to have bell perpetrated in the
clothing of our volunteers, and a decided dis
position exists on the part of the people to
deal summarily with the guilty parties. That
a s iudle like this calls for quick and condign
punishment, no man with a drop of generous
blood in his veins will hesitate to declare.
Hanging and qu-trtering would he too mild a
punishment to the dastardly scoundrels who
have preyed off the comforts and conveniences
of the soldier. It is the very essence of the
blackest cosruption, and the wretch who could
du it deserves to be puiuted at with the finger
of soon, through eternal ages, and be hissed
from tl e purlieus of Pandemonium.
But Ca: public ;honk! suspend their indigna
thin unto the guilty parties are dik,overed.
Designing Weil is this tied every other commu
,ity are too art seiz upon any pretext to
turn t-uspPon upon persons in authority in
order to gratify private spleen. Therefore we
s iy, too much caution cannot be display ed in
proncu.:cieg jalgulent. For it is no tight rum.-
tr to impugn. the IJ,tegrity of high olii,.ia s—
it demoralizes public m..rals and unsettles that
curia lenee remelt ought to be reputed implicitly
in the h,nor of all SW 111/ officers. Bur, wheo
it is mad, such au officer, be he high
or low, ha , pr.A-frd rect.- ant to his trust, its
should be swept from his position by the right
eous wrath u; - an avowed ,people, as the tem
pest sweeps from the eAtth the sturuie,st cab
that ever braved the st..auts.
These clamors in re-p, et to the clothleg of
our sol•iiers, mty or may not be welt roma ed.
We believe that to a ezrtain extent they are
uuforturrately true. A tea; fol r.sponsibiliry
rests somewhere and on come person, and when
the day of rettibuttou (miles, as come it will,
the miscreants who have s ained their souls by
This unholy peculaticn, must go to the dust
tctore the angry frown of the Chrisqam world
And we rejoice in the opportunity of being all
to as-ore the people that our eft' zient and pa
tti.>ti., Governor is actively engaged in ferret
ing out thost.--h o , yi.VO perpar air dthe sereozs.
Eie fins - now n. reti:. experiencr-d ageur
at Washington, invtstig ,ting the mutter;
cefore very long we may expect to hear of such
developments as will fasten the crime upon the
teal pall , S. The Govrrucr has already learned
who it was that p dined off cue worthless shoes
upon the Pennsylvania .Regimr nts, and it is
satisfactory to know that they have not been
paid for !, et, neither will they be. The swind
ler will find that his nefarious project will be
defeated. No money will be percuLted to be
drained from the Treasury by any man or set
of men who pervert their trust, violate the law
and impose upon our brave defenders, us this
conteniptib!e shoe dealer seems to have done
Gov. Curtin, in this matter, has displayed most
commendable zeal, and it has peen owing
mainly to his prompt and decisive action
iu tte premises that the scheme has been
foihd. The sime vigor, we are confident, will
be tonifestLd in all other respects where there
appeks the slightest foundation to suspect
frau But it will require time and patient,
labofstus work. There should be no predpita.
tion in an affair like this. Let the people have
contifence in their Executive—let that cond.
dead remain firm stud stable until it bccomes
clein'that it should be withdrawn. Gov. Curtin
has carious and complicated duties to perform ;
the ixigency of the times demands every mo
ment, and even draws upm the hours that
shottd be devoted to repose. But he does not
flacr . lor falter. True to the sentiment upon
whit be was so triumphantly elected, he gives
all tis energies to the prilous task of guiding
thitiguud old Commonwealth safely and hun- I
ord e rly through the terrible crisis which is upon
us/ Not a tithe of the k ff,ats put forth by him,
isiomprehended by the people; neither can
dose sff)rts be fairly seen or fully estimated
Mail the confusion which now prevails in all
dtpartments of busiuesi shall have given way
pace more to peace and harmony. And then,
iv.l believe, it will be said or Guy. Curtin, "well
done good and faithful s.rvant ; thou hast been
ier faithful over a few things, and I will make
Nee ruler over many thinge"

It is believed that Col. Kensham's South

the position of the rebels there, in view of the
probability that the federal troops would strike
first at that point to cut off communication

the defences are daily strengthening.

restore peace and confidence, to protest the
majesty of the law, and rescue our brethren

the safeguard of your honor the persons
and property of the Virginians. I know yon

that each one of you holds in his keep

Union. If you are called upon to overcome
armed opposition, I know your courage
is equal to the task ; remember that your
only foes are armed traitors, and show mercy
even to them when in your power, for many of
them are misguided. When, under your pro
tection, the loyal men of Western Virginia
have been enabled to organizs and arm, they
can protect themselves, and you can then return
to your homes with the proud satisfaction of
having preserved a gallant people from destruc
