COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,
ANDREW G. CURTIN,

... 4 00
Governor of the said Commonwealth.
To sustain the Government in times of com
mon peril, by all his energies, his means and
his life, if need be, is the firs ti duty of every
The President Of ,the United States has made
a requisition on Pennsylvania for twenty-one
new regiments, and the regiments already in
the field must be recruited. Enlistments will
be made for nine months in the new regiments
and for twelve months in the old.
The existence of the present emergency is
well understood. No patriot will pause now
to investigate its causes. We must look to the
future. Everything that is olgar. to us is at
tinder these circumstances I appeal with con
fidence to the Freemen of Pennsylvania. Yon
have to save your homes and your firesides—
your own liberties and thoSe of the • whole
Icall on the inhabitants of thecounties, cities,
boroughs and townships throughout our bor
ders to meet and take active measures for the
immediate furnishing of the quota of the State.
Let those who cannotgo themselves contrib
ute to provide bounties, equal, at least, to those
offered by adjoining Statee.
The Constitution prohibits me from drawing
money from the Treasury without authority of
law, and I will not cast a doubt on the patriot !
tern of our citizens by assuming. he necessity of
calling the Legislature at this time.
This is no time to wait for Legislative action
and the negotiation of loans. Delay might. be
fatal. To put down this rebellion is the busi
ness of every man in Pennsylvania ; and her
citizens will show on this occasion that they do
not wait for the slow process of legislation, and
do not desire to throw on the Treasury of the
Commonwealth a burden which they are indi
vidually ready to bear themselves.
The conduct of our men already in the field
has shed immortal lustre on Pennsylvania. Let
their brethren fly to arms to support them, and
make victory speedy as well as certain.
I designate below the number of companies
which are expected from the several counties
in the State, trusting the support of her honor
in this crisis, (as itimay be safely trusted,) to
the loyalty, fidelity and valor of her freemen.
Whilst the quota of the several counties is
fixed ecp4tAbly,mvui,to fill the rer4stettion 19r
ple of any county limit their exertiond te the
enlistment of the companies named.
Oar heroic eons of Pennsylvania have moist
ened every battle field with their blood; thou
sands have bravely died defending the unity of
the Republic and the sanctity of our flag, and
other thousands have fallen sick and wounded,
and their places filled.
Freemen of Pennsylvania! Friends of Gov
ernment, of order and of our common nation
ality ! one earnest struggle and peace will
again dawn upon us as a happy, prosperous
and united people.
Given under my hand and the great seal of
®the State at Harrisburg, this twenty-first
day of July, in the year of our Lord one
thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, and of
the Commonwealth, the eighty-seventh.

HARRISBURG, PA., TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 22, 1862.
THE CITIZENS OF HARRISBURG IN COUNCIL
Agreeably to public notice a large and
enthusiastic meeting of the citizens of Harris
burg was held at the Court House last evening,
to take into consideration the state of the
country, and adopt measures for encouraging
the enlistment of volunteers.
Although only few hours' notice was given,
it was one of the largest and most enthusiastic
meeting ever held in the city of Harrisburg.
The meeting was called to order by A. J.
Herr, Esq., upon whose motion the following
named gentlemen were Seleeied as officers
GOY. ANDREW Q. CURTIN
Mayor WM. H. KEPNER,
JOHN H. BRIGGS, Esq
Dr. GEORGE BAILEY,
GEO. BERGNER, Esq.
After the organization had been completed,
hie Excellency, Gov.Ourtln, proceeded to state
the objects of the meeting, In one of his usual
eloquent speeches, concluding with a poWerful
appeal to his hearers to rally in defence of our
common country. He was frequently inter
rupted by shouts of applause.
Hon. J. O. Kunkle desired to know if any
gentleman present had prepared resolutions eX
pressive of the sense of the meeting.
His Honor, Judge Pearson, in response, rose
and remarked that he had been called upon by
a number of gentlemen who were interestid in
getting up the meeting, and requested to pre
pare such resolutions. In accordance with
that .request, therefore, he had prepared • the
Resolve, That 4n the present crisis of the
public affairs a large increase of the armies of
the republic is immediately required, and our
powerful and patriotic Commonwealth must•
not be behind her sister' States in furnishing
her fall quota of men to answer the call of the
President of the United States.
Resolved, That in this qiigency we deem it
expedient to raise by subscription among the
People of the Commonwealth such sums of
money as will be required as a bounty to each
pattiOtic citizen who will Folanteer to saa-ro
Ms country iv.-therarmy-torthli United states,
rather than have the Executive resort to the
slow process of convening the Legislature to
make an appropriation out of the public trea
sury for that purpose.
Resolved, That a bounty of dollars-- should
in the opinion of this meeting be paid to each
able bodied citizen who will volunteer to serve
as part of the quota of Pennsylvania in the
army of the United St des for one year or
during the war and be accepted-therein, and
money should be furnished by those who are
unable from any cause to render personal ser
vice to their country.
Resolved, That to raise the necessary funds
for paying these bounties, a committee of
-- persons be appointed to solicit subscrip
tions within this city and the vicinity, so that
our county shall not be behind in furnishing her
full quota of men and money, and that the
people of the county at large are also called
upon and requested to raise up like commit
tees for the same purpose.
Resolved,Tbat it is advisable that public meet
ings be called without delay, throughout the
several cities and counties of this broad Com
monwealth, for the purpose of infusing greater
ardor into the peoPle, and convincing them of
the necessity of a more active prosecution of the
war in defence of their Constitution and gov
ernment, and the propriety of .raising the re
quired bounty money for volunteer soldiers,and
the necessary funds for the maintainance of
their families during their absence.
Resolved, That in the opinion of this meeting
there would be great propriety in the constitut
ed authorities of the city of liarxisburg appro
priating, out of the public treasury, a. portion
of the fund required as bounty money to vol
unteers, and trusting to repayment thereof by
the Legislature at its next session. ,
After the resolutions were read, Judge
Pearson moved that the amount of the bountk
alluded to in the 8d resolution Ix fixed at fifty
dollars, and proceeded to explain his reasons
for making. the motion in a few well timed re
marks, which were loudly applauded. General
A. L. Roumfort seconded the -motion.
The proclamation of the, Governor calling
for additional troops, was read by Dr. Bally,
and• when the quota apportioned to Dauphin
county was announced, it was greeted with loud
Mr. George ,Bergner moved that the blank
for the committee, in the fohrth resolution,
be Wei with "twelve," two from each ward in
the city; which was agreed to.
Mu. J. C. Kunkle was then called upon,
and in response, he rose and entertained the
audience for nearly an hour's duration, in a
speech of the most thrilling eloquence, excitim
the liveliest feelings of patriotism in the bosoms
of the large audience, which
fested'itself in outbursts of load and repeated
Gen. Miller, and Col. A. J. Herr, also made
thrilling and telling speeches.
At this jun9ture it was announced that a
subscription paper had been started at the Sec
retary's desk for the accommodation of those
who desired to make contributions, when in.
response the following gentlemen subscribed
the sums set oppreite their respective names,
each contribution as made, being greeted with

The new American tariff continues to excite
a strong hostile feeling from the press. •
The Mimes bitterly denounces the spirit which
regards the tariff, with satisfaction, because of
its injurious effect upon England in particular,
and Europe in general.
The London Post says that the tariff will be
looked upon in Great Britain as a measure
tantamount to a declaration of war, and thus
the unpopularity of the Northern States will
not only be terribly aggravated, but will im
part something more than moral effect to the

The London Morniny Pod argues that practi
cally the scheme against Richmond has ter

position of McClellan's army.
The London Globe hopes that the gigantic
difficulties which are being developed in pro

sides, and that more reasonable views may su

INTERESTING FROM GEN. BANKS' ARMY
IVAlutwiToN, July 17
The burning of the railroad bridge over Rapi
dan river, was caused by a mistaken idea of
some of the soldiers, instead of by any order
emanating from Gen. Banks, or the immediate
commander of the expedition, Brigadier Gener
al Hatch. The river, however, is fordable at
this Eleason, at many points near the bridge,
and its destruction can be a matter of no great
importance either way.
Arrivals from Sperryville state that there
has been almost daily skirmishing between
Gen. Sigel's pickets and the , rebel. scouts, near
the Gap at Luray, and that several of the ene
my have been killed. They also report that a
reconnoissance in force went from Gen. Sigel's
command, on Wednesday, towards Madison,
and several guns are reported to. have been
heard in that direction by travelers, the same
