HARRISBURG, PA Monday Afternoon, September 9, IS6I. CAPT. JOHN H. DUCHMAN, among the oldest of the volunteer soldiers of Lancaster city, who has done much to improve and elevate the vol unteer system of the state, has recruited a com pany and attached it to the regiment being raised in that county by Col. Henry Hambright. This is a glorious example to the young men of the state, and an honor to that school of old men who have themselves reflected the honor on Pennsylvania of which we all love to boast. The name of the veteran Captain Duchtnan de serves to be mentioned with distinction by our cotemporaries, and we therefore ask that it be passed around. SAMUEL McWILLIAms has been nominated by the Republicans of Centre county as their legis lative candidate. It is not our purpose to make invidious destinction by lauding individual can didates from various parts of the state during the coming contest, but when we know a gen tleman as thoroughly as we do Mr. McWilliams, we cannot refrain from congratulating the men who placed him in nomination, and commend ing the cause which has so worthy a repre sentative and advocate, as the cause of our friends in glorious old Centre will have in their legislative candidate. Samuel McWilliams is an able and an accomplished gentleman, with that morality of character which alone can give security and tone to the integrity of a man, and without which no man is worthy of confidence or support. Mr. McWilliam's election is cer tain. THE OLD ELEVENTH. Immediately before the expiration of the term of the three-months men, the eleventh regi ment, of which Phaon Jarrett was the colonel, offered its services to the federal government for three years. At the expiration of their term, the colonel and a considerable number of the men refused to re-enter the army, when it was found necessary to re-organize the regiment by the election of new officers. Richard Coulter, who was lieutenant colonel, under the old or ganization, was made colonel, a choice which could not have fallen on a more chivalrous gen tleman or more accomplished soldier. He is a thorough tactician, and has seen sufficient ser vice to render him all that a regiment of brave men could desire, both in- the camp and the field of battle. William D. Earnest, another good solder,,is the lieut. colonel. He has also seen service. H, A. Frink is the major elect. Major' Frink is a graduate of West Point, but for some years has been devoting himself to other pursuits. He is regarded by those who know him best as having the qualifications to distinguish himself on the field of battle, and in every respect to make himself really essen tial to the discipline and efficiency of his regi ment. Our reason for noticing this regiment at this time is, that it is the only distinct regiment which has, with a slight difference, preserved its first organization, and is therefore the oldest regiment in the service from this state. We have a high regard for its officers and men, and do not hesitate to predict for both rank and file a noble success in the noble cause in which they have pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honors. WHEN TIM HARVEST is gathered and garnered, there will be in the state of Pennsylvania at least fifty thousand men all of whom will be out of regular employment. Hundreds of men who heretofore found employment in the pine ries of the state, as wood choppers, colliers and lumbermen, will be compelled to seek other engagements, from the fact that these operation. will be suspended during the coming season, or at least so restricted as to be carried on with much less the force of labor required during former seasons. The men thus thrown out of employment are used to exposure, hardships and long hours of labor. They have been in ured to the inclemencies o f season s and the rough est climates. Out of this material the very best soldiers in the world can be disciplined, and to this force Pennsylvania will appeal in case another requisition should be made on her for additional troops to swell the federal army. The idle farm help will abo constitute another element of good strength, not yet fairly brought into service in this struggle, for the simple rea son that when our difficulties first made it ne cessary to organize armies, this portion of our population were engaged in work that could not be neglected for the same reason that on the success of the agricultural interests depended very much the complete organization, discipline, sustenance and support of the federal troops.— According to these facts, Pennsylvania can very easily furnish at least five regiments of a thous and men each, any time during the winter.— She can do this any time after the first of No vember, and in the meantime it would be a most judicious plan on the part of those who may thus expect to be called on, to organize companies at once, and enter on a system of drilling in anticipation of the discipline to which they will be subjected in the army. If by such a system they improve and perfect themselves in the manual, without being called on to take up arms, they will have achieved a benefit for themselves amply sufficient to repay them for the time and labor devoted to its accomplish ment. A TIMELY EXPLANATION. While there is a most commendable and chivalrous rivalry among the people to serve their country in this great hour of its trial, there is another rivalry among a certain class of men to serve themselves, to gain position for dis tinction and not to aid in a great work, which is deserving of the most unqualified condemna tion. These are the men who are always ready to head rival factions in any cause, and in the present juncture are doing more harm than good, by their persistent determination to push themselves into positions for which they have no earthly merit or ability.— It is these men, too, who are striving to raise issues between the states and the feder al authorities, on tke subject of levying troops, with the hope that in the general confusion which a dispute or difference would create, they could profit by the antagonism, and reap any benefit which the success of one or the other of these powers would confer. But it is only just to declare that there is no difference or dispute between any of the authorities of the loyal states and the federal government, and that, on the contrary, the very best of feeling prevails both as to furnishing troops and the manner in which they should be organised and mustered into the federal service. Immediately after the catastrophe at Bull Run, and when the country was pierced to its centre with the most poignant sorrow at what was then deemed a great calamity, the War De partment was besieged by men making profers to raise regiments and brigades, and particular ly their ability to bring any number of men into the service that the department might re quire. At that particular time, with the public anxiety raised to its highest pitch, the policy of refusing such offers would have been very doubt ful, while the desire of the department was so well known to be the concentration of a force imme diately to insure the reorganization and strength ening of the army. At the same time requisi tions had been made on the states to furnish certain quotas of men, so that the regiments thus being formed by order of the state authori ties and the independent organizations of indi viduals, engendered local and personal rivalries which were fast demoralizlng the service and disheartening thousands of young men who were anxious to enter the army, but who were prevented from getting into active service by the delays and corruptions of the men engaged in the various organizations. Among the tricks resorted to was the publication of despatches such as the following : HARRISBURG, September 2.—The act of the 15th May, 1861, section 12th, expressly forbids any volunteer leaving the state except he shall be accepted by the governor of the state under a requisition from the President. It has, there fore, been decided by the state authorities, that persons enlisting in independent regiments, ac cepted only by the war department, are not enti tled to commissions from the state, and their families are not to receive the benefits of the funds raised by their respective counties, and in case of their death the pension of $8 a month for five years allowed by the state, will not be made to their widows and minor children. Under this condition of affairs, it became ne cessary for the War Department at once to cor rect all misapprehensions as to the troops which the - different states were to furnish. When the authority was given to raise independent regi ments or brigades, it was not deemed necessary to say that the states furnishing such troops would receive full credit for their quota, as it was justly considered that the faith and intention of the federal government on this subject were well understood, but as rival parties have sought to create a different impression, such as the pub lication of dispatches as the one we quote, it is no more than just to state that the design of the federal government was to facilitate the state or ganization, by granting power to additional in dividuals to raise troops as speedily as possible. The rivalries of those engaged in this business have produced other results. than those antici pated, and in their haste to succeed, they have created jealousy and bickering both unbecom ing and embarrassing to the general cause. The public understand these facts, and they will still higher appreciate and approve the ac tion of the federal government, when they learn that an order has been issued to the effect that all troops from the states for the federal army must be organized and reported through the state governments before they can be reg ularly mustered into the United States army. This will save all future trouble, and put an end to the false issues which a few insiduous and in terested people were fast raising between the states and the federal authorities. The following is a copy of the order on this subject which has been forwarded to the au thorities in all the states, where the same con fusion produced the same rivalry between in terested parties as has been the cause of so much complaint and annoyance in this state. It will be seen by this order, a copy of which has been or will be directed to the authorities of Pennsyl vania, that the War Department finally settles the difficulty where it has existed by making it the order for all regiments from all the stales to ?Tort for service to the federal authorities through the Adju tant Generals of their various states. This finally harmonises the difficulties heretofore attending this branch of the military service, and we trust, therefore, that all complaint will in the future give way to the old spirit of a hearty support of the government : WAR DEPARTMENT, ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFIOE, Washington, Sept. 5, 1861. 71 Fast : All persons having received authority to raise volunteer regiments, batteries, or com panies, in the State of Pennsylvania, will imme diately report to his Excellency, Gov. Curtin, at Harrisburg, the present state of their respective organizations. They and their commands are placed under the orders of Gov. Curtin, who will reorganize them, and prepare them for ser vice in the manner he may judge most advan tageous for the interests of the General Govern ment. Second: All commissioned officers of regi ments, batteries or companies, now in service, raised in the state of Pennsylvania, independent of the State authorities, can recognize commis sions from the Governor of that State by reporting to the Adjutant-General thereof, and filing in his office a duplicate of the muster-rolls of their respective organizations.

Editor Telegraph:—An incident transpired a few days ago, which I will relate. It was the presentation by the honorable Secretary of War to a rifle regiment from New York, bearing his name, of a handsome gonfalon and two small flags, designed for right and left guides. Gen. Cameron presented them in a brief, pithy, and impromptu speech, complimenting the coloi.el for gathering around him such able-bodied and soldierly looking men, and felt assured that they would never dishonor the ensign which he is about to transmit to their protection, nor prove recreant to the glorious cause in which they were now engaged, to which the colonel very gallantly and urbanely replied, " That he would either bring that flag back or leave his dead body on the field." How much patriot ism was couched in that one sentence! Al though raining copiously, the General, nothing daunted, proceeded to review the regiment. It being in open order, he passed in front and come up the centre, and his presence seemed to inspire the troops beyond measure. His (the Secretary's) health is somewhat fee ble, harrassed as he is by the buzzards which constantly hover around him. He is bored dreadfully ; and thousands of visitors call to see him whom he has to refuse admittance. Did he receive all the calls made upon him he would have no time to attend to public busi ness. A great evil existing in this city is our citi zens patronizing grocery keepers and tradesmen of all denominations who are hostile to the government. Sutlers of regiments too, who expend thousands of dollars during a week, never make inquiry as to the loyalty of those from whom they make purchases, and thus a certain class of avowed sece,sionists, particular ly on Louizana avenue, are making untold for tunes from a government the overthrow of which they would hail with rapturous applause. But the story is not yet told. At the navy yard, where in the neighborhood of three thous and hands are employed, it is confidently con ceded that one half are traitors, while number less Union men are walking the streets in search of employment, reduced almost to a state of mendicity. The government printing office, nothwithstanding the oath is administered, still swarms with traitors. A traitor will not regard a solemn oath. The Star and the Sunday Horning Chronicie, both staunch Union papers, the com position is done principally by secessionists ; and in the Republican office, the recognized official organ, there are several who, a short time ago, justified all the treason promulgated in the south, and when she won a victory applauded her. And in other branches of business the same sad picture is presented to the view. Tender-footed Union men obtain lucrative em ployment while sincere ones idly peregrinate the streets. Mr. John C. Rives, the gentle manly proprietor of the Congressional Globe who employs over one hundred hands in his printing office, stereotype room, press room, bindery and counting room, and who is a de voted and unfaltering friend of the Union, says that next session of Congress he will not em ploy a man, women or boy, without rendering sufficient proof that they are true to the interests of the government. They must not only take an oath, but produce papers to that effect. Let others follow his example and all will be well. Mrs. S. S. Williams, a lady of some intelli gence, and wife of a prominent lawyer in this city, publishes a card in a recent number of the Republican, vindicating herself and husband from certain vituperative charges, set afloat by petti fogging lawyers, jealous of his talents and de sirous of injuring him in any conceivable man ner. I have known Mr. Williams long, and can truly testify to his loyalty. He is one of the most distinguished young lawyers at the Washington bar, acknowledged as such by his colleagues, and has been offered creditable posts by former -a-ambsi.t.eations., a ll of.hirth ba per empbrily refused. Although a Virginian by birth, he has been on the side of the Union during all its trials and vicissitudes, and I sin cerely trust that the busy-bodies who arraigned him before the bar of public censure on false and scurrilous charges, will hereafter hold their peace, or else some of them, who are known to be enemies to the Government, may have an opportunity of enjoying a sea breeze at Fort La fayette. A hint to the wise. The Star announces this evening that the main force of the rebels have been withdraivn from Manatsas, but what direction they took is not known. I suppose the statement can be pronounced with safety a canard. ERATO. AN INCIDENT AT CRESSON.—An affecting inci dent took place at Cresson the other day on the occasion of the arrival of the train bearing Gen. Lyon's remains at that point. The moment the cars stopped, General Anderson most unexpect edly appeared on the train, and shook hands with the escort. He said he was stopping at Cresson, and could not allow the cccasion to pass without taking a final farewell on earth of the remains of so brave a soldier and excellent officer as Gen. Lyon. The General then passed to the coffin, and bending his head above it, said with a trembling voice : "We could ill af ford to spare so courageous a soldier at this time. America needs all her heroes now." As Gen. Anderson was leaving the car, Mrs. Plummer, wife of Captain Plummer, U. S. A., one of the escort, and wounded at Wilson's Creek, rose from her seat, and saying she would be most happy to know the hero of Fort Sumpter, the General cordially grasped her hands, and gal lantly replied, pointing to the Captain : "Yon need not seek, my dear Madame, to know heroes when you have so brave a one in him you have chosen for your husband !" IT is highly probable that Mexico will soon become the theatre of interesting events that may have some connection with our own troubles. The British and French Governments recently severed relations with Mexico, by with drawing their Ministers, and advices from Eu rope lead us to believe that those two nations are about to unite in an interference in Mexican affairs, to enforce the payment of claims of Eu ropean citizens—the redress of outrages on Frenchmen and Englishmen, and the resent ment of insults to their consulates. But it is hardly probable that the interfer ence will stop here. Ulterior designs, looking to a France-British protectorate, and even to intermedling with the affairs in the United States, it is suspected, are entertained. Events are of rapid occurance now-a-days, and what ever schemes and aims the British and French Governments propose on this continent, will shortly be unfolded. A GOOD IDEA.—The Governor of New Jersey has sent a commissioner to visit all the New Jersey regiments at the seat of war, and prevail upon the men to send their money home, either for their families or for safe keeping. His plan, which meets with success, is, to have the chap lains go around a few days before pay day, and get the men to say what amount shall go, and then be on hand to get the money from the pay master. The whole amount is then sent to the Governor, and the men's orders on him are paid wherever the men reside. This is an excellent idea, and one which might be carried out with advantage by the authorities of our own State. We have no doubt whatever that if steps like the above were taken with our troops, that a large portion of their pay would every month find its way to their families. The Governor would do well to give the matter his attention, as the plan is one which must work well, and might be imitated with advantage by the dif ferent States having troops in the field. Dan Rice's rhinoceros, which escaped while being brought to La Crosse, (Wis.,) a few weeks since has been recaptured by means of a chain trap. WasiliNGtoN, Sept. 8, 1861 BY THEllirt BALTIMORE REBELS ARRESTED. INGENIOUS COACH CAPTURED ALL PASSES COUNTERMANDED MRS• DAVIS' LETTER SEIZED Some important arrests were made here with in the last twenty-four hours, which reflect cred it on the vigilance of the Government police. On Saturday night the officers arrested M. J. Grady, and nineteen others, mostly residents of the Eighth Ward, at the North Point Monu ment House, on the Trap road, about eight miles from the city. They were .endeavoring to make their way to Virginia. The party had gone thither in three wagons, and were to have embarked on a schooner, probably for the Eas tern Shore, and from thence to Virgina. Among the articles seized was a quantity of blue flan nel, several Military uniforms, packages of let ters, medicines, etc., and a Secessionflag. The whole party were taken to Fort McHenry.— Grady is one of Marshal Kane's police. This morning, about day break, A. William son, doing business as a coach-maker at No. 50 German street, was arrested, charged trea son against the government A few days pre vious it was ascertained that he had been en gaged by certain parties to make a wagon with a false top and bottom to facilitate the trans mission of contraband articles south of the Potomac. The accused, after being - closely watched, was arrested in the new wagon, with a fine pair of excellent horses, just as he was about leaving his shop. At first he protested his innocence, and invited investigation ; but the police soon demonstrated that they were better acquainted with the secrets of his wagon than was supposed, and gently drew from its secrets recesses ample evidence of the guilt of some one. The vehicle had a false floor, and as the police quietly removed it the accused exclaimed "My God ! I. am a ruined man." The articles found embraced among other things twenty large sized heavy revolvers, of superior qua'ity, a quantity of gold lace, red flannel, a package of about one hundred and twenty letters, addressed b parties at Peters. burg, Richmond, Norfolk, and Fairfax, and some from several first class business houses in B titimore. The letters and other articles were sent to General Dix. Williamson was sent to Fort McHenry. General Dix has issued an order interdicting all communication with the State prisoners at Fort McHenry. All passes heretofore issued are countermanded. It is understood that, among the letters seiz ed, were some addressed to officers in the rebel army, and one to Mrs. Jeffe: son Davis. Rev. W. H. Wilson, a Methcdist preacher of this city, was arrested on Friday at Waterville, plane No. 1, of the Baltimore end Ohio Rail road, on a charge of being concerned in the smuggling of quinine and other contraband ar ticles, mostly medicines, through the lines of the federal army into the confederate States for the "aid and comfort" of the Southern army. The accused was arrested by Lieut. Jordon, of the Twenty eighth Pennsylvania regiment, who sent him to the Point of Rocks, the head quar ters of Gen. Banks' army.
