APPOINTMENTS BY THE GOVERNOR
Sunanon—S. D. Freeman.
Amen= Summon—William D. Humphrey.
A NEW ENCAMPMENT.
General McCall yesterday selected a site for
an encampment, in order to satisfy and silence
the apprehensions of a great many good peo
ple along the Maryland line. The locality of
the encampment is at or near Freedom, in
York county, about one mile from the Mary
land line, and is to be occupied by the reserve
'corps of Pennsylvania volunteers.
A rifle and an infantry regiment are to be
moved to this encampment as soon as they
can be armed and equipped.
The Quarter Master General has orders to
prepare the ground immediately, and is now
engaged in making the necessary arrangements
for this encampment.
ARMS FOR 2if. PENNSYLVANIA
The federal government has notified the
GOVemor of Pennsylvania that he mill be fur
nished immediately with ten thousand stand
of arms, for the purpose of arming the reserve
corps. These arms are to be of the best and
most approved description, and will be phiced
in the hands of the reserve corps as soon as
they are forwarded from the general govern
ment. The State authorities 'are making ar
rangements to Purchase a supply of rifles. The
arms to be furnished by the War Department
were applied for by the state authorities.
Three thousand men are to be armed and
equipped next week.
(len. McCall left hie Head Quarters to-dap,
and started for Easton. He goes to the Easton
Encampment for the purpose of inspecting its
details and organizing the new regiments which
have been formed in that locality. In this
connection we may add, that Gen. McCall le
laboring night and day, to hasten the organ
isation of the Pennsylvania forces so as to se
cure their utmost effectiveness on the field of
battle. That he will succeed, his ability and
enthusiasm are an earnest.
Hem FRANK &Am, Jr., Representative elect
to the Thirty-seventh Congress, from Missouri,
Is highly spoken of by the press of the north
west as Speaker of the House of Representa
tives at the approaching extra session of Con
gress. He come from the very best stock, be
ing the third son of Hon. Francis P. Blair, of
Washington. Francis P. Jr., is just 40 years
years of age, having been born in 1821. He
graduated at Princeton College in 1841, and
entered upon the practice of law, in St. Louis.
In 1846 he made a journey to the Rocky Moun
tains for his health, and upon the opening of
the Mexican war, he joined the army as a pri
vate and served until 1847, when he returned
to St. Louis. In 1848 he joined heartily in the
free soil movement and made a strong speech
against the extension of slavery into territories,
In 1862 he was elected to the Missouri Legisla
ture as a free soil candidate, and was re-elected
in 1864. In /856 he was elected to the 11. B.
House of Representatives, where he has dis
tinguished himself by his bold, active labors.
Mr. Blair would make a superior presiding
officer, and we have no doubt that his election
would give great satisfaction to the country at

TORN W PORNEY.
As the meeting of the extra sesit - . - cr of Con
grass approaches,the question of its organiza
tion is being discussed, and a decided prefer
ence for its officers expressed in most of the
leading journals of the country. Under the
rules, the clerk of one House holds over until
another is elected, acting also in the capacity
of a presiding officer until the House has
elected a Speaker. John W. Forney was the
clerk of the last Congress, and therefore holds
over until the meeting of the extra session, in
July next, when the House will be organized by
the election of entirely new officers. This fact,
of course, creates many candidates ; but in this
particular instance the whole country seems
to point to the old clerk as eminently worthy
of being reelected ; and, what is still more
gratifying, some of the very best men in the
country, whose names have been mentioned as
candidates for this position, are voluntarily
declining a nomination in the most emphatic
expressed deference for the superior qualifica
tions and claims of John W. Forney. At this
particular juncture, such an election seems al
most to have become a natural necessity ; be
cauie, in the great crisis which has almost over
whelmed the government, no man stood firmer
to its tenets, upheld its laws more determined
ly, or presented a bolder front to its enemies,
than John W. Forney. From the 4th of
last March he has been in Washington almost
constantly, dividing his time between his du
ties in his department and the soldier in the
camp. His council, his courage, his experience,
and his will to do, are unsurpassed in might
and influence ; and when we offer him these
compliments we only reiterate the sentiment
of the cabinet and the camp, the citizens and
the soldiers of this country.
From among many others of the same tone,
we select the following article from the Cham
bersburg Repository and Transcript, one of the
oldest and most influential journals in the state
of Peonsylvaniii. We repeat to the entire
Congressional delegation from Pennsylvania,
what the Transcript seeks to 'impress on Mr.
M'Pherson, that we know of no vote they
could all cad that would give more satisfac
tion to their constituents, than by voting for
John W. Forney for the clerkship of the next
House of Representatives :
Tan Cranursurs.—We were very much grati
fied at reading an account of the action of the
Hon. Emerson Etheridge, of Tennessee, on the
subject of the Clerkship of the House of Repre
sentatives at Washington. The name of this
gentleman having been mentioned .in connec
tion with that important office he, like a die.
interested patriot, as he is, called upon John
W. Forney for the purpose of assuring him
that he was not a candidate. At the same
time promising the latter gentleman all his
influence to secure a re-election. This is right.
All others should view the matter in the same
The election by acclamation of Col. John W.
Forney to the post which he has twice filled
with marked ability, would be perfectly proper.
We trust that every Republican member of,
Congress will, without a moment's hesitation,
cast his vote for Col. Forney. Two years since,
we advocated the election of Col. Forney to
that place, rejoiced over his success, and hope
that we will again be able to congratulate him
upon the choice of his fellow-men. We know
of no vote Mr. M'Pherson could cast that
would give more satisfaction to his constitu
ents than for Col. Forney for the Clerkship.
COST or THE Wax.—The following extract
from a statement published in the New York
Journal of Onnmerco, presents an estimate of the
annual expense likely to be attendant on the
prosecution of the war. The last letter item is
particularly suggestive to a reflecting mind,
and we wish all the accounts presented had as
fair a statement of the amount of "pickings
and stealings :"
"Omitting from our estimate the probable
cost of medicines and hospital attendance, am
bulances, baggage wagons, ammunition fur
cannon and rifles, (a large item,) and all the
other incidental expenses, which can only be
guessed at, we foot up the yearly totals as
Pay of 225,000 soldiers $40,700,000
Do. 18,000 sailors 2,692,000
Soldiers' clothing 13,160,000

Items omitted or contingent, in
cluding pickings and stealings,

It is here reported, upon the authority of
of a messenger who arrived this morning from
within one Mile of Harper's Ferry, that the
bridge across the Potomac at that point was
blown up and entirely destroyed, between four
and five o'clock this morning. The explosion
was distinctly heard, and the smoke of the
burning structure seen by pasties here.
The messenger further reports that all the
troops have been withdrawn from the Mary
land shore, and that the town of Harper's
Ferry has been evacuated by the great body of
troops recently there. A small force is yet
there, probably the rear guard of the retreat
ing army. It is reported that eight car loads
of provisions were destroyed to prevent tbtir
falling into the hands cf the Federalists who
are supposed to be concentrating upon Har
per's Ferry from the direction of Greencastle
The wife and family of Gen. Hager were at
Jersey last night, and had engaged a private
conveyance from this city to take them to a
point further southward, but were compelled
to accompany .the, column. By its sudden
flight the destruction of bridge may be regard
ed as certain. Confirmatory intelligence of the
fact has been received here within a few min
A gentleman from this city, who was at Har

Theta were no military movements of import
ance to-day. The statement in yesterday's dis
patch that the rebels had retired from Great
Bethel is true, so far as their main body is con
cerned ; but the place is still held by tbem and
can be occupied by a.large force atshort notice.
Capt. H. E. Davis, a son of. Judge Davis,
Lieut. C. H. Seaman' and Dr. Martin of Col.
Duryea's regiment, yesterday entered therebel
lines with a flag of truce. They saw a formid
able battery at Great Bethel, but were not al
lowed to examine the works. From thence-to
Yorktown they were conducted by bridle paths.
They were escorted by a Sergeant and four
troopers, who met them three miles from Ham
ton to which point the secession pickets extend.
They were courteously treated by Col. J. B.
Magruder, who commanded at Great Bethel.
There was a large encampment of cavalry
at Yorktown, and the place was being strongly
fortified. There ate also some batteries be
tween Great Bethel and Yorktown.
The secessionists report one man killed and
five wounded in the Great Bethel affair, and
they express' a wish that General Pierce may be
retained in command.
Maj. Winthrop was shot by n Louisiana rifle •
man, while heading a vigorous charge. He
was buried by the rebels, and his heroism was
greatly praised. His cap, and spurs have just
been biought hither from the Zouave camp.
Two Zouave prisoners died yesterday in the
rebel camp ; their names are Bsnj. J. Hopper
and Jos. L. Taylor, the latter a nephew.of
Moses Taylor. The rebels represent that they
had other prisoners, whom they were willing
to exchange, and Capt. Phillips has to-day
visited the fortress with a flag of truce in re
ference to the same.
