HARRISBURG, April 21. 1861.
HON. JOSEPH BAILY.—This gentlemen, one of
the few Democratic members of the next Congress
from Pennsylvania, accompanied the Bloomfield
Infantry to this place a few days since, and re
mained here until after their departure for Wash
ington, rendering them every assistance in his
power and conteibuting liberally to their comfort.
General Baily has also subscribed largely to the
fund for the maintenance of the families of these
men during their absence. He is the only member
of the next Congress we - have observed in town
since the assembling of the troops.
Szarevrano RUMOR !-It is said that there are
spies from the Confederate States here who Oahe
themselves cognisant of every thing going cm, and
convey the information South as soon as possible.
This they must do by dispatching messengers; for
no telegraph line could be need for such purpose.
The Governor has a positive knowledge of private
matters connected with the movements of the army
being forwarded to the enemy, for which reason he
has authorized the Mayor to issue the following
In accordance with a suggestion of Gov. Cunrist,

Tog Foaatestsus.—We have mixed considerably
among the soldiers who have marched in defence
of the Union, and we find that the foreigners, in
proportion to the population, make quite a formid
able show in numbers. There are some five or six
companies composed entirely of Irishmen, besides
those enlisted in the ranks of other companies.—
There are also several German companies, and
scarcely a company has arrived here that has not
more or less Germans in its ranks. In addition to
this we may also mention that we have noticed
Englishmen and Frenchmen in some of the corps.
This fait should in itself be sufficient to put to
blush the narrow-minded bigots who a few years
ago tried to ride into power on the petty plea that
"America was for the - Americans." These dema
gogues, many of whom are now in snug positions,
enjoying the sweets of office, kindly condescend to
let the foreigners volunteer and de their fighting.

patriotism by our adopted eitisens. The lie has

ARMY CLOTHING.—The State Administration be
ing informed by the National Administration, only
within the last forty-eight hours, that under the
act of 1795 each State -would be required to fur
nish uniforms for its own troops, Governor Curtin
has taken the most energetic steps to provide for
the deficiency. Ife therefore requested Robert L.
Martin, Esq., of Delaware county, formerly a well
known citizen of Philadelphia, with Captain Gen.
Gibson, of the United States Army, to proceed to
Philadelphia nod provide at once uniforms for ten
thousand Pennsylvania troops.
Such has been the demand for military clothing,
that it was utterly impossible to supply the quan
tity by contract or in the regular way. The gen
tlemen to whom the duty was entrusted immedi
ately took the most active measures. The order
was given yesterday afternoon, says the Sundoy
Dispatch; ladt night the Girard House was en
gaged, and before eight -o'clock some fifteen or
twenty cutters were at work. On Monday morning
one thousand women will be engaged in making
up the clothing, which will be finished within ten
days. Mr. Martin has received thirty letters from
ladies of the city, offering their services to super
intend the working of the women.
We will also state that there will be no jackets
made, and that our men will wear blue blouses in
Chesnut street, in front of - the Girard, was
crowded last evening with people, who could not

TBRIMILE ACclDENT,—Although we have mira
culously escaped accident of any kind during the
excitement and confusion which has reigned here
for the last six days,.we are pained at last to
chronicle an accident which resulted in death.
About 10 o'clock as mA yesterday Robert M'Call,
of the town of Chester, in Delaware county, was
in the company of Lieut. William Blakely, of the
Union Blues, in front of the Jones House. The
subject of conversation turning upon revolvers,
Lieut. Blakely drew out his, and while showing to
Mr. M'Call it Went off, the contents of the barrel
entering the right breast of the latter. He was
removed to the parlor, where he died in less than
an hour. The Lieutenant was so seriously pros
trated by the accident that fears for his life were
entertained, and it is feared now that he is hope
lessly insane. The imrties were fast friends.
Mr. M'C ill was about 27 years of age, and one
of the finest looking men we ever saw. He came
from Philadelphia this morning for the express
purpose of bidding his numerous friends good-bye.
His accidental death caused the most profound
sorrow among the Union Blues, all of whom knew
him and esteemed him. His remains will 'be
This should serve as a warning to all who carry
loaded revolvers about their persons, for which
there is really no existing necessity here. Several
companies armed with weapons of this kind, dis
charged them immediately after the accident.
Pacrvistosts PIMITY.—At the beginning of ope
rations at Camp Curtin,the commissariat was some
what ' confused and defective. The people of
Berks county bearing this, yesterday forwarded
fifteen tons of provisions for the soldiers from that
region. We are gratified to learn that the Com
missary Department is now on a good footing.—
Several hundred tons of hams, beans and crackers
have arrived, the groceries and warehouses have
an abundance of Sour, and the butchers are re
ceiving cattle by the car load from the West.

We hope that there will be no fears on the part
of our citizens as to the shortness of supplies. The
presence of the army should have no effect what
ever upon the price of articles offered in market on
Wednesday morning, and we do hope that if any
person makes the attempt to extort, under the de
lusion that the supply will not equal the demand,
oar citizens will stint themselves a little in order
to rebuke those who are always ready to increase
prices under the slightest pretext.

ARRIVAL OF TROOPS.—About five hundred troops
arrived to-day at noon by the different trains.—
The Brady Artillerists, of Muncy, 120 men.
Three companies from Mauch Chunk, containing
upwards of 200 men.
The Wyoming Artillerists, of Wilkesbarre, num
bering probably eighty taen—serviceable-looking
fellows, in red shirts. -
Later.—Since the above was in type, four compa
nies, containing upwards of three hundred men,
have arrived from Schuylkill county.
Later in the day a special train brought eight
hundred from Wyoming county, and three hundred
from Northampton county.
A CARD.—The officers and men of the Ports
mouth (Ohio) company request us to tender to the
cit . /neon of Harrisburg their thanks and gratitude
for the many courtesies extended to them during
their stay in this , city. -In performing this labor
of love, we may be permitted to remark that the
hoipitelities of the city could not have been be.
stowed:upon more worthy recipients.
THE PATRIOT AND UNlON.—Although we kept
our fast Hoe steam press running until a late hour
yesterday morning, we found it utterly impossible
to supply the demand for papers.
MORE FLAGS Itatann.--Yesterday a flag was
raised by Jacob Walters on a rope stretched across
North street, at the corner of Third.
Col. P. B. Boas bad a fine flag run up on a staff
in front of his law office, in Third street.
COURT.—The regular April term of the Court
commenced yesterday, but was unable, in Come'
planes of the existing state of affairs, to transact
any business. It is likely that some little criminal
business will be disposed of to-day, and the civil
eases will all be continued to au adjourned Court.
ANOTHER VOLUNTEER OONPANY.-A volunteer
company has been started in this city, under the
auspices of the Good Will Fire company, to be
called the Verbeke Rifles. They are to be armed
with howie knives and revolvers in addition to
their rifles. The rendezvous is at the Exchange,
where persons wishing to join the company can
sign the roll.
ME' ROSS a tultz.—HarriAurg will have three
companies in the army, without a doubt. The
"Ross Guard" held a meeting at the Exchange last
evening, and we learn that but a few men are
lacking to fill the ranks.
The Good Will Fire Company and the Friend
ship Fire Cbmpany, both are making an effort to
get the requisite number of men to form full com

Which was unanimously agreed to.
ALFRED SLENTZ, SRey.
A RIDICULOUS Ryston.-Some person, probably
for want of something better to do, started the re
port yesterday that the basin had been poisoned
by Southerners. The extreme folly of such a re
port is evident in the fact that the soldiers at
Camp Curtin are supplied with water from a well.
Nevertheless the report had its effect, and many
people used well water during the day. In fact,
such a panio was created that it was deemed ne
cessary to place a guard around the basin. In
times like theca it requires but little to inaugurate
a reign of terror, and people who circulate false
reports of any kind to inflame the public mind, as
sume a fearful responsibility.
At a meeting of the Board of Trustees of the
Pennsylvania Female College held this day, Ham
ilton Alrioks, Esq., Vice President, in the chair,
the following preamble and resolutions were
WHEREAS, Through the sad dispensation of an
all wise Providence, the Pennsylvania Female Col
lege has met with a grievous loss, in the removal
by death of the ROv. B. R. Waugh, Principal of
this Institution: And whereas, The present dis
turbed condition of the country creates uneasiness
on the minds of parents about the absence of their
children ; therefore,
Resolved, That while we regret the necessity,
yet,.for the present, we will be obliged thus un
timely to close the present collegiate term.
Resolved, That we hereby place the pupils who
are boarders in the College; under the kind care of
Miss Smith, the resident teacher, with our special
request that she will watch over them, until they
are restored in safety to their friends.
Resolved, That we know of no safer place than
Harrisburg for pupils and others who arc absent
from their homes.
Resolved, That the Board of Trustees hereby
tender their personal services to any parents ha
ving pupils in the Institution, and who may desire
any protection at our hands, and that Miss Smith
be requested to communicate this resolution to the
parents of pupils residing at a distance.
Resolved, That we hereby tender the thanks of
the Board to Miss Smith, resident teacher, and to
Rev. James Colder, Dr. Eagle, and Mr. Teupser,
for the fidelity with whieh they performed the du
ties of their several depactments.

10,000 BEAUTIFUL STEEL PLATE ENGRAVING
OF THE LORD'S PRAYER FOR SALE
vALUABT.E PROPERTY GIVEN AWAY!
The idea of representing the LORD'S PRAYER by an
engraving, and of ornamenting and arranging it in such
a manner as to produce at once a model of neatness and
taste, was conceived and carried out by ORNERY, the
celebrated Bank-note Engraver of New York city. It
commences with exquisitely executed words of "OUR
FATHER." and then follow in succession the ether parts
of the Prayer, every phrase of which is engraved in the
most elegant and tasteful manner. Near the bottom of
the picture fie a superbly executed head of OUR SAV lOU B,
and.encircling the upper part of the engraving are ten
angels, each bearing one of the TEN OOMHANDMENTB.
The engravinghaa received the meat Unqualified praise
from the religious community, as there is nothing of a
sectarian character about it, having been recommended
by clergymen of all denominations. As an ornament it
is one of the most splendid ever pub' fished in this country,
and is destined to take the place of a poorer claas of
engravings. The size of the plate is 2.0x28 inches, and
is unquestionably the cheapest engraving ever offered in
this country. •
Who that loves Art—who that delights to study a fine
engraving—who that would possess a beautiful Picture

work is calculated to impirt, won d fail to secure a copy
