THE ENFORCEMENT OF Tilt; LAW.
Wednesday Afternoon, June 19, 1861.
I , Trw JERSEY gives six teats to each company
cif her troops—the most liberal allowance made
by any State.
Nsw Yons is to recruit twenty-three more
regiments, all of which will be accepted a° soon
es they are organised.
TM: TRAITORS in Baltimore are the lawyers,
the liquor dealers, the aristocracy, and a por
tion of the roughs who have been in the habit
of sucking the great teat.
Gov. ROBINEON i of Kantes,bas issued a pro
clamation calling on all good citizens to organ
ize military companies for the purpose of re
pelling attacks from the rebels in Missouri.
THE PEOPLE of Maryland have petitioned the
Legislature of that State to adjourn. They de
clare that its sessions are an annoyance to the
peace and harmony of the commonwealth, and
therefore they desire its adjournment.
WE HAD the pleasure of a call from Major J.
Culp this morning, from Towanda, Bradford
county, Pa. The Major speaks in the most en
thusiastic terms of the Union feeling in the
Gibralter of Republicanism in the North, old
Bradford county, and says that throughout tha t
entire region of the State, volunteer companies
are forming and drilling, in order to be ready
to respond to another appeal for men from the
President of the United States, should it 'Fe
mme necessary to make such a call.
AN ORDER has been Issued to the officers in
command in Virginia, forbidding the arrest, or
attempt to arrest, without authority from head
quarters, of any citizen or citizens, under the
plea of their being Secessionists, or for any
cause whatsoever, save that of being at the
time in arms against the United States. Nor
will any officer or soldier, without the like au
thority, forcibly enter, search, or attempt to
search, any house, or the premises of any peace
able resident, or other person not in arms
against the United States.
THE PENNSYLVANIA. REGIMENTS now arriving
I n Washington city, are pronounced on all
sides to be the most substantially if not orna
mentally uniformed of any of the volunteers
from any section of the country that have
yet reached the federal capital. The men are
hardy and cheerful, and anxious to be brought
before the enemy. We ask our brethren of
the press, who were so jubilant over what they
tauntingly describ d as the "ragged regi
ments," to give this fact of the fine appearance
of our soldiers the prominence which they gave
the fiat exaggeration.
I 2 Is ma practice in the British Army through
out the world, for each soldier to frank his own
letter, by merely putting on the corner of the
letter or envelope " Soldier's letter." This is
respected by all the British post offices and
mails throughout the world as a free frank.
By every foreign mail letters are received from
the East and West Indies and elsewhere through
the Boston post office, with this frank. In view
of the sacrifices made by our volunteers and
soldiers, and the small pay received, we would
suggest that some provhion be made by Con
grees for carrying their letters free of postage.
WaaTzvott may be his standing as a man, or
his pretensions as a statesman, patriot or moral
ist, distrust the motives and reject the counsels
of him, whose language or measures lean to

breathe even the atmosphere of the modern

dangerous to youth, and no communion should

the ground, real or pretended, of his dissatis
fiction with the Government—and no matter

Tax SEORETLIVE or W6a has again been corn
- yelled to interpose in order to prevent any im
positions being practiced in this great cage, on
the industry and'resources of the country. It
will be remembered that, come weeks since, he
refused to allow the importation, duty free, of
certain linen cloth for the use of the mili
tary academy, justly declaring Coat it was the
policy of the government to encourage and pa
tronize home manufacturers when seeking sup
plies for its departments or agents. By
our telegraphic dispatches it will now
be seen that he has peremptorily declined
to give his consent to the importation
of certain foreign coal for the use of the same
institution, on tlej true and just grounds that
the want could be supplied from our own great
and inexhaustible resources. The idea of im
porting coal to this country, and the applica
tion for that purpoee made to a Pennsylvanian
as Jealous of the interests and resources of the
country as Gen. Cameron, will at once strike
the reader as supremely ridiculous. Those
who applied must be either ignorant of our re
sources, or very anxious for free trade. In
either case,' the rebuke - administered by the
flocretary of War is well merited.
TO E.YD IN' COMPROMISE.
When the government made its first effort to
check the rebellion that has become such a
terror in the south, the allies of sedition in the
north denounced the legitimate means of the
administration to vindicate its authority and
enforce the law, as coercion, and declared that
the difficulty could only be adjusted by com
promise. Compromising right, while the wrong
doer was secretly engaged in consolidating his
power to usurp the authority of the govern
ment, was one of the plans adopted by the
leaders of the present secession movement to
achieve success, and now that these plans are
about to fV, they are also about to try their
old game of compromise, to escape the penalty
of the laws they have 'violated, and get rid of
the responsibility they have assumed in array
ing themselves against the government, in
trampling on its laws, and arming themselves
to destroy its political, civil and religious ex
istence. We are now gravely informed that
John J. Crittenden is preparing another com
promise, to be submitted in the apdroacbing
session of Congress, but the public., so far, are
is the dark as to the terms on which Mr. Critten
den will propose to restore the country to peace,
business to prosperity, and still preserve the
majesty and dignity of our forms of govern
ment. We are at a loss, too, to understand
how the two principles of government—the
one adopted by the patriots of the revolution,
amid prayer, confidence and friendship, and the
other proclaimed by the parasites of this rebel
lion, amid the destruction of private property and
the desecration of public law and order—we are
at a loss to understand how a compromise can
restore peace and perpetuity between such op
posite and belligerent principles, without affect
ing the stability of a pure government unless
the evil is utterly and forever crushed out. We
are at a loss how a compromise can be effected,
by which the assassin, the plunderer and the
usurper can be set free, and the Constitution
and laws maintain their prestige and their
power. If such a compromise is effected—if
the deliberations of the approaching session of
Congress are to result in no greater benefit to
this country than a compromise, we will for
ever be compelled to mourn the policy that
convened it, and deplore the
statesmanship that dictated such an adjust
ment of our difficulties. Compromise now will
only entail confusion hereafter. Compromise
with traitors will infuse into treason the con
scious power of influence and ability, to rise In
arms again, when ambition becomes dissatis
fied with the Constitutional preferences of the
people. Compromise with an armed rebellion,
that has polluted its paths with crimes, and
stained its banners with the blood of free and
innocent men, would not only forever destroy
the ability of man for self government, but it
would affect the power of all government, and
render the safety of communities, life and prop
erty the mere toys of violence, assassination
There is no reason why this rebellion should
be treated any other than as a common mob,
and left to the suppression of the proper offi
cers who are empowered to enforce the law.
There is no reason why those who are engaged
in it should not suffer the punishment they
have invoked, There is no complication in the
trouble—it needs no mathematical or philoso
phical solution—and it is bound to disap
pear before the force of the law, provided there
is no attempt at compromise made. But if
Congress legislates to excuse crime instead of
exterminate criminals, our position will not
only become doubly precarious at home, bat
before the nations of the world our claim to
fairness and justice will be In • danger of in
validation. The laws which we propose to up
hold will no longer command respect abroad.
The authority that we boast of as wielding at
home, will be trampled under foot when it snits
the purposes of any set of men banded to
gether, either for rebellion or self-aggrandise
ment. To offer to compromise now, Is to oast
aside the glories of the past, the blessings of
the present, and the hopes of the future. No
thing but a stern adherence to the law, and a
determined punishment of those who have
violated its sanctity, can save the American
Union, and those who attempt a compromise
with the traitors who have armed to abrogate
such laws, are doing the people a more vital
injury than are those who have their daggers
to their throats. Let us, then, have a com
plete and entire dissolution, before we broach
the thought of a compromise by which our en
emies can escape the just wrath of our brave
THE SELINSGROVE Trails, is decidedly the
boldest and most infamous publication of trea
son issued in the entire country. It excels any
of the sheets in the South in virulence, vio
lence and impudence, and why any loyal com
munity will permit the utterance of the senti
ments it weekly publishes, is an enigma that
we cannot wive. If the case were on the
other side of the great question now agitating
the world, and a patriot dared to raise his
voice in South Carolina or Lousiana in favor of
the Union, he would either be tarred and
feathered or hung to the nearest tree. But
here in Pennsylvania, in the midst of one of
its most enlightened communities, the propaga•
tion of treason is made a profession in which the
wretches engaged amass fortunes and gather
around them the most genial comforts. The peo
ple of Selinsgrove themselves, must be compos
ed of soft mettle topermit this rehash of treason
to be served up to them weekly through the
columns of the Times, or they would silence its
vile tongue by reminding its conductors that
a halter is the best persuasive for those who
persist to spit the vile slanders and treason in
the faces of honest and loyal men.

Pennopluania ID ailp ardegrapt), itlebnesbah 'Afternoon, June 19, 1861.
W. W. laws, Commissary General of Pennao
- appeared in a card this morning , . in the
Patriot and Union, defending himself from an
assault made on hlm in the same columns on
Saturday last by a wtiter over the initials of
"G. W. C." Gen. Irwin was made responsible
by "G. W. C." for derelictions chargeable to
the U. S. Commissary Department, and also
attacked for complaints that should have been
preferred against the Quarter Master's Depart
meat of Pennsylvania. The writer evidently
desired to cavil with and traduce some of the
officers in power, but got so far wrong in his
reckonings as to befog himself in his own Igno
rance. We give an extract from the letter of
Gen. Irwin, sufficient to vindicate himself and
expose the falsehood of his assailant :
The communication in your Saturday's issue
is false in its statements, its accusations and
its complaints. It proves but one thing, that
the author is either an ignorant ass or an in
famous libeller. In the first place, as Commis
sary General of Pennsylvania, I have nothing
to do with the supplies for Camp Chambers—
that camp being under the control of the War
Department of the - United States. How then
could Capt. Sipes become a bearer of dispatches
to the Commissary General of Pennsylvania?
I answer that he only became such in the maud-
lin brain of "G. W. C.," who, desiring to
please and pander to the prejudice of his own
creation, invented this falsehood in regard to
Capt. Sipes' mission to Harrisburg, and sought
to give it publicity in your columns in order 10
gratify the mean spirit of mischief with which
be seems to be animated. He quoted from
your local department a paragraph in which
you state that Captain Sipes was the bearer of
a dispatch to the Commissary General, on the
subject of the CLOTH:DM of the 2d and 8d regi
ments. On this annunciation "G. W. C."
founds an attack on myself as Commissary Gen
eral, which, if merited, should have been di
rected to the Quarter Master General ; as that
officer, and not the Commissary General, is
charged with the clothing of the troops.
We have never met a man in any public
position more honestly zealous to discharge his
duty and fulfill the trust reposed in him, than
Gen. Irwin. He devotes himself exclusively to
his department—and of all other men connected
with the organization of the military forces of
Pennsylvania, has done his duty with a scrup
ulous regard for integrity and impartiality such
as will disarm any attack made upon him, how
ever it may be envenomed with spite and
Written for the Telegraphi
We are again located in the State of Mary
land, having arrived here last evening from
Camp Chambers. Our camp is located about
three miles from Hagerstown, on the turnpike
leading to Frederick. It was rumored through
the regiment before we arrived at Hagerstown
that we would meet with a cold reception ; that
the secessionists would take every opportunity
to annoy us, and that everything that traitors
could devise would be resorted to to make our
passage through Maryland as disagreeable as
possible. But we were agreeably mistaken ; oar
reception in Hagerstown was as enthusiastic as
any we have yet had. At every point we were
greeted with the waving of the stars and stripes,
the shouts of the populace and the smiles of the
ladies. Hagerstown is loyal to the tnion ;it
contains a few secessionists, but since our ar
rival they have kept themselves dark.
Within a half mile of our camp is the village
of Funkstown, said to be one of the hottest se
cession places in this part of the State. lam
informed that out of the one hundred and fifty
voters it contains, about oue half of them are
secessionists. Upon our arrival here some of
the loyal citizens informed us that the seces
sionists were in possession of U. S. rifles and a
large iron field piece. Adjutant I. S. Water
bury upon hearing of this fact immediately de
tailed about a dozen men and proceeded to
town and took possession of the arms. The
small arms are of the old pattern, (twenty
five of which were taken), and the cannon an
iron twelve pounder. The former the Adjutant
placed in the hands of Gen. Wynkoop and the
latter was left just outside the camp ground,
from whence it was removed to the quarters of
the First Regiment by-some of their men, who
without authority took it in charge. The credit
of ferreting out the whereabouts of the arms,
and also the names of all the secessionists in
this vicinity, belongs to the indefatigable Ad
jutant of the Second.
This afternoon Gov. Hicks came up from
Frederick, and paid a visit to the camp. The
whole brigade turned out, and the Governor,
accompanied by Major General Patterson ) re
viewed the troops. The Governor declined to
make any remarks to the soldiers, but author
ized the General to say that he was pleased with
their appearance. Gen. Patterson made a pa
triotic speech, which was repeatedly cheered.
The general health of the troops.under Gen.
Wynkoop is good, and out of his entire brigade
not more than twenty were left behind at
Chambersburg _on account of sickness, and
those were principally fever cases, who will
doubtless join us in a few days. The men of
our regiment have been extremely lucky in
receiving the rations that are allowed Uncle
Samuel's soldiers. The Commissary of our re
giment, (the second,) is indefatigable in his ex
ertions to deal out the best of provisions, and
every ounce the government allows we get.
Mr. W. Hibberd, Jr., of Walt Chester, is in
charge of this department. He is a gentleman
eminently qualified for the position, and stands
in the highest esteem among the men in the
It is the impression that we will move from
here in a day or two to Frederick, which is at
present the temporary capital of Maryland.
KENIVCSI . RECIII/MT.—COL Wm. H. Young,
of Kentucky, has, we learn, raised a regiment
of cavalry, the services of which have been
offered to the Oovernment and accepted. They
will be immediately mustered into service.

WASHINGTON, June 19.
ZAccounts of an entirely reliable character,
this morning received from Poolsville, dated
nine o'clock last night, state that Col. Stone is
still there, and not at Leesburg, as heretofore
frequently reported. Yesterday afternoon the
enemy attempted to make crossing at Gone
creek, having arrived opposite Edward's Fer
ry, in force estimated by officers in command
of the guard there, at from eight to nine hun
dred. Thdy made use of a ferry boat which
they had withdrawn from the Potomac river.
ICol. Stone bad given orders, as he himself
communicates, that if any attempt was made
to move the boat a fire should be opened on it.
In compliance with these orders, Lieut. Has
brouck fired from his twelve pounder field
Howitzer, a spherical case shot, which burst di
rectly in range and covered the boat with a
shower of bullets and fragments.
The effect was excellent. The horse of a
mounted officer leaped overboard, and the boat
was rapidly drawn back to shore. The enemy
then formed into line along the crest of the
bank, and commenced firing; but a few well
directed spherical case shot dispersed them and
sent them flying toward Leesburg.

SECRETARY CAMERON ON THE IMPORTA
TION OF FOREIGN COAL.
WASHINGTON, June 19.
Some time since an application was made to
the Secretary of War to obtain the admission,
duty free, of linen drilling imported for the use
of the II S. military academy, and was refused
by him on the ground that the policy of the
government should at all times be to prefer do
mestio‘manufacture s in all Instances of pur
chases for the public service, and to resort to
foreign markets for such articles only as cannot
be obtained In this country.
By the followiog it will be seen that the Se

reference to a recommendation of the engineers
department for the admission, duty free, of 250
tons of gas cooking coal and 73 tool of cannd
coal, imported for the use of the Military Ace.
"The Secretary of War cannot countenance
this importation of coal, by approving of thi s
recommendation. A better article of coal of
all kinds can be secured in this country than
can be brought from Europe, and it is deemed
due to the great industrial interests of the
country that the government should foster and
