Yesterday was full of painful suspence to the
people of the state capital, owing to the rumors
of the retreat of Gen. Banks back t Martina
burg, Harpers Ferry, and even across the Poto
mac to Williamsport. Of course the naked fact
of retreat was all that was contemplated, and
the effect and circumstances of this were ex
aggerated and extended to the full force, while
any possibility that the movement might be
part of the etragetical plans of the General in
command of the army of the Potomac, was
entirely unconsidered. In view of this news,
and In fact, before its full extent was known,
Gov. Curtin dispatched orders to Philadelphia,
for the purpose of instantly rallying what
ever force could be pro,mred in that vicinity,
and this morning, in General Order No. 23, the
Governor and Commander-in-Chief calls upon
Major Generals, Brigadier Generals and Colo
nels throughout the State, to muster, without
delay,all the military organizations within their
respective divisions. The duty of the men
thus summoned may be the moat important of
the war, so far as the property and persons of
the people of Pennsylvania are concerned, be
cause our borders are even now threatened by a
hostile foe, and while we write, a rebel army
may be devastating a portion of Pennsylvania.
In view of these facts, the danger is iminant and
pressing. Gov. Curtin fully appreciates it, and
with his great energies once more aroused, will
leave nothing untried or undone, not only to
guard the soil of Pennsylvania, but also again
to rescue the government at Washington from
every embarrassment or peril. Let Pennsylva
nia awake, then, to her duty in the new crisis.
Let her sons once more arouse, and rally to the
support of the Old Flag.
The announcement, this morning, that Penn
sylvania wanted more men—that the President
had called on Gov. Curtin for additiopal regi
ments, and that the danger was imminent of
au invasion of Pennsylvania by a portion of
the rebel army, was simultaneously made in
every part of the state where a telegraphic
battery was in operation to transmit the news
on the wings of the lightning. By this time
every fighting man iu the Commonwealth
knows that his services are required on the
field ; and by this time, too, every man has
made up his mind to march and fight, whore
ever the government needs his services. So
far as numbers of men are concerned, there
will be no trouble in raising any quota which
may be apportioned to the state. We have
the material, the enthusiasm and devotion—
what Is wanted is organization, and this will
be hurried forward as fast as the material offers
and men are brought out by the Adjutant
General. This organization will be facilitated
by the fact that the military movements of the
past year have infused a military spirit and
aroused a military ardor among all classes ; so
that there need be little delay beyond that
which will become neerssary in the transporta
tion of troops to localities were they can
be formed into companies and consolidated into
regiments. Already Gov. Curtin has started
the machinery of the Departments, and already
every official charged wittr a military duty is at
work. Pennsylvania may be depended upon
for men to any extent which the federal govern
ment can demand. •
Since writing the above we learn that a large
portion of a regiment will reach this city from
Philadelphia to day, and at ones take possession
of Camp Curtin, where the regiment will be
completed and then sent forward to the scene
of danger. Other troops are fast leaving the
State, the design being to leave the organization
Of this quota in the hands of the Adjutant
General, by whom the companies and regi
ments will be organized under the old militia
lawn of the State. The officers will be elected
by the men, and the men formed into com
panies and consolidated into regiments just as
fast as any number of such are offered. The
word is to rady, and organize as fast as possible.
It is a pressing want that must be supplied and
therefore there must be no delay.
The orderly published at the head of our col.
umns will fully explain the policy of the state
government to be pursued in these mganizA
THE DEAD ARE ARRIVING
There is nothing in connection with the great
struggle in which the government is now en
gaged, that elicits a more melancholy emotion,
or is worthy of more generous sympathy and
respect, than the brief announcements we daily
meet. in our rural exchanges, of the arrival
home of sick, wounded and dead soldiers. The
details of great battles, in which thousands of
human lives are sacrificed in tribute of war and
honor of victory, become sickening in their ex
tent and often stale in their frequent repetition
to the news cravers of the day. In detail, such
accounts are unmistakably horrible, but by the
greedy public, intent on speculation as to the
genius of a favorite leader, or the prowess of a
popular captain, the slaughtered are forgotten
amid the blaze of victory, and the simple sigh
which denotes the burst of anguish for the loss
of dear ones in battle, is hushed in the public ac
claim for the victors. Yet there is sympathy for
the wounded and sick, and sorrow for the dead,
where the preparation and pageantry of war are
unknown. We read of this sympathy and learn
of this sorrow in the exchanges to which we
allude. We read of weary soldiers returning
to the hamlets by the wayside, and the cottages
in the mountains of Pennsylvania. We read
of dead heroes borne home in affection's care ;
silently, and oh how sorrowfully, to the home
so lately blessed by their cheering presence
and protecting love. We read of widowed
mothers kneeling at humble graves ; of grey
haired fathers blessing with prayer the memory
of their sons, as they curse with indignation the
authors of their death; of widows with their or
phaned children sobbing their last farewell to
mangled corpses—of sweethearts giving up hope
and love. Of all these proceedings the busy
world takes a small note, yet it is such pro
ceedings that are making the strongest impres
sions on the age in which we live, some day to
be developed in a force of thought and action,
such as will be felt not alone on the cause of
rebellion, but on the influence which animated
and encouraged that cause to treason. Every
soldier's grave that lifts its verdant mound to
the sky of Pennsylvania, henceforth becomes an
altar dedicated to freedom—and every tomb
that marks a soldier's resting place, should be
inscribed with the record that, He was Assassi
nated by Slavery. Time needs such a record, for
the generations that are to come. Truth de
mands the acknowledgment, that liberty may
hereafter be saved from like violence. And
thus these sick, wounded and dead soldiers, as
they are borne back to their homes, become so
many instructors of the people, not only on
the enormities of war, but the excesses and
crimes of treason. While we weep for these
dead heroes, and sympathise for the .shattered
remains of battle, let us not forget their honor
able place in history—let us not forget their just
places in our hearts and grateful remembrances.
Pennsylvania, by her authorities, has provided
nobly for all these—in comfortable retreats for
the homeless sick and wounded, and honorable
graves for the friendless dead. But something
more than official recognition is demanded. A
people must dedicate themselves to the recol
lection of the wrong they have suffered. A
nation must arouse itself to the condemnation
of that wrong, in battle now, and in stern re
solve hereafter to submit to no influence in
politics or society which seeks the degradation of
humanity that the aristocratic and treacherous
might rule in affluence and absoluteism.—
When this is done, we riot only honor those who
laid down their lives for freedom, but we secure
that freedom for ourselves and for posterity.—
We make freedom the movement to preserve the memory
of freedom' s martyrs.
THR PATRIOT evidently feels the wrong which
has been done the gallant men now leaving
their homes and perilling their lives in de
fence of their country by a Democratic Su
preme Court, while that sheet is displeased and
diseoncerted that we should have discovered
the imposition and injustice thus inflicted, and
that we should have the independence to point
it out to the men thus wronged. When the
soldier returns from the battle, he will not
be slow in demanding a change of the Con
stitution that thus disfranchises him in an
hour when, above all others, he should be in
vested with all his rights. The sneers and
ridicule of the Patriot will not satisfy the sol
dier ; nor will any professional technicality of
the law, twisted and woven into the sophis
tries of prejtdica, satisfy men who find them
selves stripped of their most sacred rights by
a party whom they had elevated to power to
maintain and ensure these holy privileges.
Like the attempt of the Chief Justice of the
United States Supreme Court to interpose the
authority of that body between the President
and the suspension of the Writ of Habeas Corpus,
this decision will arouse the people to a jealous
supervision of the power with which they in
vest their rulers.
—Our neighbors must carry this decision on
their own shoulders. It is peculiarly Demo
cratic, particularly in its display of feeling to
the soldiers. Any apology for or extenuation
of the motives which induced the delivery of
such an opinion, or which also Impelled the
Patriot to its approval and applause of the same,
will only expose the hypocrisy of all con
cerned. Let the Patriot simply confess that
it is sound Democratic doctrine to disfranchise
every man who volunteers to serve his country
in the camp or in the battle field. The people
will sooner believe such a confession, than
any explanation which either court or journal
can make as to the 'justice and disinterested
patriotism of this decision.
A KNIGHT 07 THE GOLDEN CIRCLE is never so
much dismayed or excited as when he deems
himself in danger of exposure or defeat. Like
the thief who mistakes every lamp post for a
police officer, a Knight of the Golden Circle imag
ines every man, not a locofoco, in pursuit of that
order ; while the idea of asking a man to pledge
himself to loyalty, is, in the opinion of the
same semi-rebels and secret traitors, perfectly
horrible. Those who doubt this assertion, let
them read the Patriot and Union of this morning.
The moment that sheet discovered that disaster
was impending to a certain portion of the loyal
army, it began to howl about loyal men ; and
we have no cloUbt that if a rebel army was on
the banks of the Susquehanna in a locality to
be reached by some of the people about that

establishment, they would give it welcome,
furnish it with every information, and point
out to its drunken cohorts the loyal men who
now disturb their dreams and apprehensions.
In a word, a loyhl man is au obnoxious object
in the sight of the Patriot—almost as obnoxious
as one opposed to locofocoism.
.Thls DAT IS to be a most important one in the
National House of Representatives. It is to
decade whether or not that body will pass a
bill for the confiscation of the property of the
public enemy, and whether or not those who
persist in rebellion shall be permitted to ex
ercise absolute power by force of law, over the
persons of others. Thoroughly believing, as
we do, that this war will never be closed, so
long as the title of rebels to hold slaves is re
cognized, we await the action of the House
with intense solicitude.

THE FIGHT AT FRONT ROYAL,
STATEMENT OF CAPT. SMITS.
The following is the statement of the fight
at Front Royal, by Captain George Smith, of
the Ist Maryland regiment, who succeeded in
affecting his escape:
About one o'clock on Saturday afternoon a
negro mounted on horseback came dashing into
camp crying out that the rebels were coming
in greet numbers, and they will surround you
and cut you off.
At first the men laughed at him, stating
they had waited too long for them, and they
did not believe a word of it. As soon as Col,
Kenly, however, saw the man, he became sat
isfied of the rebels' approach. The long roll
was beaten. The men responded, springing
heartily to their arms and forming in line by
company, and very soon the rebels made their
appearance. Strange to say not a single gun
was fired by the pickets of the regiment. It
may have been that, in consequence of a sud
den turn in the road, they were surprised and
captured. Company A was ordered to deploy
as skirmishers and support a section of Knapp':
Pennsylvania Battery, which mustered about
In tho meantime the Lieut• Colonel of the
29th infantry, with a small detachment of his
men, who had been acting as a pioneer corps,
also formed and prepared to receive the enemy.
Our battery was soon engaged, and discharged
shot and shell for nearly two hours, and until
all their ammunition had almost been expended.
The firing was spirited, and there is no doubt
of its efficacy. Unable, however, to withstand
such an overwhelming force, the order was
given to retire, which was done, and the entire
column moved over the Shenandoah river, the
retreat being covered by a company of the sth
New York cavalry, about eighty strong.
Whilst passing over the bridge, the Captain
distinctly saw the rebel forces. There was a
very strong column of cavalry, say four squad
rons of eight companies, and five regiments of
infantry. Of this force, two regiments of in
fantry and two of cavalry were fording the
stream, the water being very low. The order
double quick was given, and the Union troops
took to the pike, where another stand was made,
Col. Kenley addressing the men, and telling
I them that their only chance was to stand and
fight to the last, especially as the rebel cavalry
were fast pushing on, and displaying a black
Capt. Smith states that he did not see them
display the white flag as was represented in
a previous account.
A second stand was made and many shots
exchanged, when the New York cavalry, who
were still in the rear of the column, broke and
retreated, riding pell mell through the ranks
of infantry. A party of the Maryland
command retreated some distance to a
wheat field and there made still another
stand firing rapidly and with deliberate pre
cision. Presently on came the rebel cavalry,
cutting right and left, terribly yelling like In
dians. In some instances neither the dying or
wounded were spared, and in two instances the
captain saw the rebels draw their pistols and
shoot them in the head whilst lying on the
The captain told the men they had better
return to the pike and escape as they best
could. He had not proceeded far when a cav
alry officer rode up to him and demanded his
sword and pistol, which he threw upon the
ground, the rebel at the same time drawing a
pistol upon him. In the confusion, however, he
succeeded in regaining his pistol, and observing
a rebel shoot one of the Ist Maryland regiment
he drew it and shot him, and, with the assist!
ante of Lieut. Camphor, he succeeded In se
curing the rebel's horse and riding off. After
proceeding about two miles they came across
the ambulance in which Col. .11.enley lay, at
tended by Surgeon Mitchell. The vehicle was
passing along the pike and had been repeatedly
fired into by the rebel cavalry. Finding them
selves closely pursued, they abandoned the
horse, and leaping several fences, took to the
woods, where they managed to conceal them
selves and the enemy gave up the search.
There were but six companies of the First
Maryland regiment engaged in the fight, the
remaining four being on picket duty and acting
air provost guard at Front Royal.

The Union Feeling at Hagerstown,
DESTRUCTION OF A. SECESSION FUG.
Horrible Treatment of the Sick at Winchester.
HAGERSTOWN, May :26
The excitement of the retreat of General
Banks has crested au intense excitement here.
The town is filled with refugees and escaped
soldiers, who give a most horrible account of
the sufferings of the Union men. Many of them
left their families behind to escape death.
A regular Union force destroyed the rebel
newspaper office in which the Hagerstown Mat/
was published. The presses, type and other
materials were totally demolished, together
with the building. The building being the
property of a Union mangy that party at once
raised funds, and compensated the owner fully
for his loss. The proprietor fled for his life.
Among the papers of the rebel editor was found
the following letter, which was addressed to
him by the lamented Colonel Kenly, who fell
gallantly at the head of his regiment, which
the editor refused to publish. The letter reads
HAtlEasrowN, Aug. 13, 1861.
26 the proprietor of the Hagerstown
SIR:—My attention has been called to an
article in your issue of Friday last, which
reflects upon the loyalty of the let Maryland
regiment. It states that twenty-five men had
deserted from it and joined the Confederates.
This statement is simply and unqualifiedly
false. Of those who are now or have been
absent without leave, for the purpose of re
turning to see their friends in Baltimore, not
one has, to my knowledge, left toe State of
Maryland, or has any idea of so doing, least of
all to join those who are in arms to overthrow
the Government of the United States.
Your obedient servant,
JOHN R. KENLY,
Colonel Ist Maryland Regiment.
The treatment of our sick in the hospitals
at Winchester is represented as most horrible.

gentleman in this city, and kindly furnished
to us for publication:
CAMP BEFORE RICHMOND, May 19th, 1862.
I received your letter to-day, after a forced
march of twenty-three miles through mud and
rain, worn Out and tired, and a few words from
you have cheered me and my unrades, for,
now, we feel assured that Gov. ( . k.rtiu and the
State of Pennsylvania intend to care for her
sons and provide for the sick and wounded.
Charley and I are well, thank God, after a
bloody battle at Williamsburg, when we fought
four times our number. Our gallant Col. Wm.
F. Small fell wounded at the storming of the
rebel works ; but enough of this, you have seen
the particulars in the papers. The roads, as
far as we have marched, were impassable, and
we had to repair the roads in order to get our
artillery and baggage trains over them. We
are really now before the Capital of Treason,
and we will make them shake before a week
goes by. Our regiment is encamped only fifteen
miles from Richmond city.
This morning the rebels sent us a flag of truoe
borne by a rebel Brigadier General and a Colonel,
accompanied by a guard, but we do not know
the meaning of it, yet our commanders started
them back to Richmond, and the knowing ones
saw disappointment depicted upon the counten
ances of the officers.
Ah ! Will, if you only saw how we the (Twen
ty-sixth) have been treated, you would al
most feel ashamed that you had brothers in it.
We have been thirteen months in the service,
and only two men have died by sickness, half Of
the boys under arrest, all of our staff officers under
arrest, and none of us paid off for six months,
not even tobacco money, and then placed on
the advance of the grand army of the Potomac ;
but we have not dishonored our friends nor our
glorious old State, and I think we have proved
to the world that we can use the rifle and bay
onet, and in the coming struggle of Richmond,
look for the Twenty-sixth. If I fall, I ask no
better epitaph than that I was a private in the
Twenty-sixth Regiment Pennsylvania Volun
teers, the first to offer its services to Gov.
Curtin, and the first three year regiment from
the State of Pennsylvania. We were disgraced
at Baltimore, on April 19th, 1861, but we will
vindicate our honor upon the battle-fields of
Charley is well and never looked better in
his life, but he is, like myself, worn out by
marching. Gen. Hooker (commanding our
division) told us that he would give us forty
eight hours to rusticate, and then we must
start "on to Richmond," which is only fifteen
miles—eight hours' march. To-night we moved
one and a half miles nearer to them, when they
moved two miles away from us, leaving their
works and several large guns.
There are about five hundred acres of clear
ground before Richmond, and if they intend to
stand, it is really a splendid place for a fight.
Then we will show them some field movements
gotten up expressly for the occasion by our
gallant Col. Small, and practiced by Brigadier
I must close, as I am very tired. You can
judge of that fact, when I state that we have
been marching twenty-three miles, and making
a corduroy road, and conveying a knapsack,
three days' provisions, canteen, rifle, and sixty
rounds of cartridge.
They have just brought in ninety-eighty re
bel cavalry ; they all say Virginians will not
fight out of Virginia, and we fight everywhere
for the Union and the Constitution.
