MORE _TROOPS FORCHANBERSBURG
Three car loads of soldiers from New York
city arrived here last night over the Lebanon
Valley Railroad, and proceeded directly to
Chambersburg. They were all armed and sub
stemtially equiped. It is reported that a regi
ment from Camp Scott also went to Chambers
burg last night. From all accounts there must
be at least fifteen thousand troops now at the
various camps in the vicinity of that place
THE UNION CAUSE IN KENTUCKY.
We learn from Washington that Lieut. Col.
Enyast and Capt. Frank P. Cahill, of the first
regiment Kentucky volunteers, now in that
city, have had a very satisfactory interview
with Secretary Cameron and Gen. Scott. The
object of their visit is to obtain arms for the
Kentucky Brigade, which is comprised of the
Ist and 2d Regiments, nmtbering 1,200 men,
and will be commanded by Col. Guthrie.
They were assured by Gen. Scott, that Gen.
McClelland will be immediately instructed to
supply the brigade with arms and accoutre
ments, and that orders were issued to Col.
Guthrie to report at Col. Anderson's head
quarters, at Louisville, with his command,
On Capt. Cahill remarking to Gen. Scott
during the interview, that this order would test
the potency of Gov. Magoffin's proclamation,
and that in all probability a collision would
ensue at the outset between the Brigade and
the Secessionists at Louisville, the General
replied : 'You shall be sustained, sir. We can
send you 20,000 men in three days."
Capt. Cahill confirms the statement made by
Emerson Etheridge, that eight in every ten in
Louisville are loyal, but says there are many
there professing loyalty who are really secretly
conniving with the rebels, as in Baltimore.
Lieut. Col. Enyast and Capt. Cahill will join
their regimeut immediately.
California and the Union.
The following is an extract from a letter
dated San Francisco, May 10th, 1861:
" The excitement here in regard to the
troubles in the East, has suspended everything
else, and the patriotism of the people, and
their determination to stand by the present
Administration, has shown itself all over this
State and Oregon, in spontaneous meetings of
the friends of the Union, who everywhere
pledge their lives and fortunes in its defence.
Union Clubs are forming every where, without
regard to politicai prejudices, except the Breck•
inridge Democracy, who are generully traitors
of the Floyd stamp, who have heretofore held
office. But being now about to be driven from
the positions they have so long disgraced, they
begin to think the people belong to them.
"To-morrow will be the greatest day 'ever
known in San Francisco. All business will be
suspended, and the people en masse will turn
out in a grand demonstration of their attach
ment to the Union and the stars and stripes,
and their hatred and detestation of traitors.
At Maysville we have Secessionists in nearly
all the county offices, and in the city police,
but the people generally are in favor of the
Union, and will soon purge them out by
another election,if they remain quiet and docile,
if not, in a more summary manner."
FROM CAMP WASHINGTON
[Correspondence of the Telegraph,
Camp Washington is situate between the
rivers Delaware and Lehigh, about one mile
west of the borough of Easton, in the county
of Northampton. The grounds were used for
an annual fair ground. The situation of the
Camp is high, and declines gently southward
towards the ehigh. In the midst of the Camp
is a spacious structure one hundred and fifty-two
feet long, sixty feet wide, and two stories high,
which affords ample room for the Quartermas
ter's and Commissary Departments. From the
dome of this structure a magnificent view of
the country may be had. There has also been
procured a large field for a regimental parade
The borough of Easton, from which the Camp
is principally supplied, is a flourishing town.
"It was laid out in 1787 or 1738." The streets
intersect at right angles, running east and west,
north and south. They are well paved, and
the sidewalks well curbed. The town is kept
remarkably clean, and good order prevails. It
was here the Provincial records were secreted
when the British army held the city of Phila
delphia. Here important treaties with the In,
dians were held about the year 1756. The Six
Nations were there represented.
Northampton county was erected in 1752 ,
and Easton became the seat of justice, after
which it increased rapidly in population, and
now contains about ten thousand inhabitants.
They are honest, industrious, hospitable, and
intelligent. The county of Northampton was
distinguished in the Revolution for the early
and decided stand the inhabitants took in favor'
of Independence. This was the residence of
George Taylor, one of the signers of the Decla
ration of Independence. Col. Thomas Craig,
I afterwards General Craig, resided here, "and
was the first officer to protect the Continental
Congress'in their important declarations • the
first to march to Canada ; was in the battles of
Germantown, Monmouth, Quebec, Billandywine,
and many others in North and South Carolina."
The Camp is accessible by railroad from all
sides—seventy-two miles from New York, sixty
two from Philadelphia, and only six and a half
hours by rail from Chambersburg,
Any one who has any doubts of the proprie
ty of locating a State Camp at Easton, will be
relieved of his doubts by paying a visit to Camp
Washington. The soldiers now there are de
lighted with the locality. The Camp is under
command of Col. Wm. B. Mann, and good or
der prevails among the soldiers.
The citizens do all in their power to promote
the comfort of the soldiers. General H. D.
Maxwell and P. F. Eilenberger,of Easton, spend
most of their time aiding the officers and pro
viding for the health and comfort of the camp.
There are now here fifteen companies. Gen.
Washingtonduring the:Revolutionctry Var es-
tablished a hospital here for the sick and
wounded of the American army.
Gen. Sullivan with 2,500 troops and 2,000
pack horses were quartered in Easton for sev
eral weeks, when on his expedition to the
Wyoming country against the Indians. The
inhabitants were thus taught early lessons of
hospitality, which they now practice as a virtue.
'The ladies of Easton are now busily engaged in
providing articles of small clothing for the sol
diers of that county who have been mustered
into the service of the United States.

MIsSISSIPPI WHISKY.—The Vicksburg Whig
is the most cheerful under the privations of
secession rule of any paper we have seen :
" We may be bad off for whisky, but Mis
sissippi river water, diluted with a chew of
tobacco and a grain of strychnine, is a very
good substitute for the Cincinnatti article, of
which we may be deprived."
IT is said that the Hon. John Bell, of Ten
nessee, has written a letter to his friends in
Kentucky, explaining his late extraordinary
speech in favor of secession,. attributing it to
the fact that he was thrown off his guard by
the too generous indulgence in fire-water. In
other words he was drunk when he spoke for
the cause of the rebels. Very likely.
GENERAL SCOTT AND SECRETARY WELLES. —A
friend just from Washington speaks of General
Scott's labors as immense. There are con
stantly kept before his quarters about twenty
horses, all. saddled and ready for a start, and
every few minutes couriers are going and com
ing with orders and reports. This friend also
states that the labors of Mr. Welles, the Sec
retary of the Navy, are very severe. He it in
his office night and day, attending to all the
details of the Navy affairs, thus guarding
against corruption and other abuses, and fer
reting out the Secession scoundrels in that
branch of the federal service. He doer not
intend to entrust a single duty to a suspected
officer.—New Haven Palladium.
PUGNACIOUS PEOPLB.—If Ireland was only a
little larger it would produce fighting men
enough to wallop all creation. Ireland has sup
plied more food for gunpowder than any other
island of its size in the world. No war has
taken place on this or any other continent that
the sons of Ireland have not had a hand in it.
NO matter where—on the burning sands of
Africa, or on the icy plains of Greenland—their
bones will be found bleaching on the very tat
tle field. In the war against the rebels of the
Sonth, no country of its dimensions and popu
lation will furnish more fighting men than Ire
land. Of the 320 recruits enlisted for the regu
lar service at Chatham street station in New
York, last week, 249 were Irish. It is• about in
this proportion the regular army has been made
up for years.
SEWALL'S Poor.—Since the battle at Sewall's
Point, every body has been looking on the map
to find that interesting locality. Very few of
the ordinary maps, howeveT, afford the de
sired information. A reference to the report
of the Superintendent of the U. S. Coast Sur
vey for 1855, reveals its locality to be at or
near the junction of the Elizabeth rivet with
James river, and distant about five miles from
Fortress Monroe. It is the last or outer one
of a chain of batteries extending from Norfolk
to the mouth of the river, erected for the pur
pose of defending that city and the navy yard
from recapture by our troops. These_ batteries
are constructed of guns stolen from the navy
yard, and when they are captured Norfitak and
vicinity will fall easily into the hands of Gen.
