The wear Nei'vs.
To-day as yesterday we are without details
—in fact without anything reliable. A ,gen
tleman from Papertewn, Cumberland 'county,
informed us about noon yesterday that when
he left home the road was full of wagons filled
with people fleeing with - their household goods,
from foes who were supposed to be near their
homes. They were nearly all from Adams
county, and reported the enemy in the iviciai
ties of, Gettysburg and Cashtown. Mr. M.,
from-whom we derived the information, stated
to us that he bad the information as•to the
whereabouts of the enemy from a reliable gen
tleman who had it from another reliable gen
tleman—but neither of them had seen a rebel.
Frederick City is said to have been in pos
session of the -butternuts on the -21st, -or at
least that some of them passed through it.—
They were not in great force, and it is even
represented that the first marandingbandivere
attacked and driven out by some of our troops
under Major Cole. Some say that a battle de
imminent at Chamberaburg any day unless the
rebels disperse into small squads and keep out
of reach of our troops_ They are said to have
driven of some 2,000 cattle and as many horses
from Franklin county. They keep continually
on the move, so that their exact position at
any given time is not known. Gen. Jenkins,
with 8 - force of mounted infantry 1100 strong;
is said- to be moving towards Gettysburg, and.
doing much mischief. He is said to have de
-signs on-the Northern Central railroad_
Where Gen_ Hooker and his army arc no
-body seems to know.
Milroy's defeat by Gen. Ewell at Winchester
was complete, terminating, says the NM Her
ald, in a disastrous retreat to Martinsburg and
Harper's Ferry, with only 2,000 men out of
2,000, and having lost all the artillery, stores,
baggage and everything except Whitt the men
.carried on their persons. Three entire batte
iea of field artillery and one battery of siege
guns, about 280 wagons, over 1200 horses and
mules, all the commissary and quartermaster's
stores and ammunition of all kinds, over 6,000
muskets and small arms without stint, the
private baggage of the officers and men, 826311
into the hands of the enemy.
There was a rumor last evening that Gettye
burg was occupied by the rebels and that the
people of Adams county were flying in all di
rections. Just before going to press we re
cieved a dispatch from the operator at Gettys
burg, who says that there were no rebels there,
nor could they hear of any in that vieintiy, so
thst tip) mart was a mere were, and had no
foundation in fact.
From dispatches received here last evening,
sent by reliable parties, it is ascertained that
the rebels are moving in force on Chambers

And Still They Come.
It is much to the credit of our youth and
middle-aged citizens that in this emergency
they come forward in vast numbers at the call
of the Governor to drive back the rebel in
vaders of our soil. We do not yet believe that
Harrisburg is in any immediate or even remote
danger—but Some of the border counties have
been invaded by smell parties of rebels who
ought to be driven back, or, if possible, cap
tured. Heavier bodies may be behind them,
and the intention of Lee may be ultimately to
pay us a damaging visit, and even carry the
war to the Delaware. In this view we are
glad to see the ready response of our own gal
lant militia, as well as those from our sister
States. Fresh bodies of troops are arriving

Those who are not blind, or resolved to

States living, nominally, under a written Con

under imperial sway. Montalembert says
ELECTORS: Official and other documents
charge the Catholic and Liberal candidate with
wishing to " paralyze the energies of France,
to imperil her security at home as well as her
legitimate influence abroad, to give up the
country to hazard to pave the way for fresh
revolutions, to disturb and endanger the em
pire." In a word, he who, during ten years
represented you is, according to these docu
ments, a Matt of disorder and revolution, My
whole life is one long contradiction to the ca
lumny. I never attempted to overthrow any
government; I never had a hand in any con
spiracy, never figured in any adventure, never
applauded any revolt, and never profited by
any revolution. lam driven to declare that
among the servants and the panegyrists of the
empire there are not many who can say as
much. The whole of what they tell you
amounts to this: You must name deputies do
cile and resolved to do everything the Empe
ror tells them. If this be so, the shortest way
is to suppress the Legislative Corps altogether;
for if it be composed only of salaried appro
vers it is but a costly and useless piece of ma
chinery; its suppression will simplify matters
and reduce the amount of the budget. The
Emperor will be very well able to go on alone.
He has no need of a crowd of advisers all paid
to be always of his opinion. But the Emperor
himself one4ay said that "his government needed
control and publicity," and the country has taken
him at kis word. The whole of France is at this
moment shaking of its sleep. In all directions
she is calling back to public life men of whom
I feel pride and honor to be the friend—Thiers,
Defoure, Borryer, o,llllm Barrot. These are
men who have given proofs of independence
and patriotism in the most stormy times, and
therefore the more competent to exercise sal
utary control in times of calm. They have all
responded to the call and come forward as
candidates. Not one of them has put forth
pretensions incompatible with the maintenance
of the empire, though all have demanded the
rights which France long possessed, and which
sooner or later she will obtain from those who
have the honor to govern her. Like them, and
with them, I demand less of taxation and more
of liberty, fewer conscripts and greater con
trol, less of arbitrary rule and more of re
sponsibility, less police and more discussion.
My programme is comprised in three words.
I want three things as necessary to the coun
try as they are advantageous to the govern
ment, viz: peace, economy and liberty.

Governors . Seymour and Parker.
The New York Commereia2 Adsktrilser, a YG=7
decided administration paper, contains a short
editorial, which is in very strong contrast with
the remarks of several haw and servile Aboli
tion papers in our own State. We take plea
sure in recording just and generous sentiments
from whatever source they may come, and
therefore we give this leading New York Abo
lition journal the benefit of our columns for
disseminating its remarks, which we commend
to the consideration of the ultras of the State
who have been unsparing of their denuncia
tions of Governors Seymour and Parker. The
Advertiser says :
- , We should be guilty of a great injustice
were we not to give due credit to the Governors
of this. State and New Jersey for their zeal and
promptitude in this crisis. When danger was
impending, neither of them had conditions to
propose or terms to exact. The only question
was who could first and most effectually dis
charge his duty as the ruler of a free and loyal
commonwealth. They make use of no 'if,'
'and' or 'but.' In the case of New Jersey, in
deed, Governor Parker calls upon the people
to come to the rescue 'with unprecedented
Thq genduct of these officials will be
more cordially appreciated, inasmuch as they
do net belong to the political party to which
the national reins of authority have been com
mitted. It is very possible that by referring
to the past we might find that such men as
Governors Seymour and Parker have taken po
sitions not to our liking ; but as the deeds of.
to-day are of more importance than the sayings
of yesterday, we prefer to make conduct rather
than professions the teat in judging the merits
or demerits of our public servants."
The popular heart is so deeply stirred
against the iniquities and mismanagement of
the present dominating party, and so deter
mined to have a change of nil ers, that we feel the
utmost cunfidence in the election of the Demo
cratic candidates for Governor and Supreme
Judge, in spite of all the influence whop posi
tion, money and force give to our opponets.
We have an advantage in our candidates
which it seems to us impossible for the Aboli
tionists to overcome. They are both honest
and capable men, and no men nominated by a
party controlled by speculators, peculators
and fanatics are likely to be either one or the
We have nominated men who, if elected, will
prove an honor to the State—men who will
maintain the just constitutional rights of the
State and the citizens of the State against
every attempted encroachment of the national
administration ; and there is not a man in the
Abolition party likely to be nominated for Gov
or nor or Supreme Judge who could be relied
upon to administer the government either ably
or faithfully—certainly not one who would
dare to stand up manfully against the. corrup

only hope if the couutry—that without negro
soldiers we may as well give up the contest
and acknowledge the independence of the
Southern Confederacy. If this is all true, why
in the name of patriotism and' Wisdom don't
the administration confine its attention more
exclusively to the raiding of negro troops?
WitTdon't it gather its brave black friends to
get&her, in legions, from the North and the South
wad overwhelm the rebels, hotted of con
scripting white men, with whom they allege
we cannot succeed ? • They either lie about
the negro being the only hope of the country,
or they act with little regard to its safety.
Since they have forced the negro policy upon
the country against the solemn protest of
three-fourths of the people, and since they
allege that only the negro can now defeat and
bag the rebels and save the "life of the nation,"
they are bound, it seems to us, to force him
into the army, 'wherever they find him, free ir
slave, and put him into a position where to
can best show his fighting qualities against the
armed rebels. Let the white man alone awhile
and try these black heroes in the field, not by
companies and regiments merely, but by bri
gades, divisions and corps.
NEWS OF THE DAY.
FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC.
lIIIADQUARTERS, ARMY OF THE POTOM/A
June 22nd, 1663.
Heavy cannonading was commenced, early
yesterday morning, in the direction of Aldie,
and continued, with intermissions, during the
day. Towards night the sound became more
and more indistinct. No definite reports have
been received. It was known that Gen. Pies
sonton attacked the enemy near Aldie, and :t
is supposed he has succeeded in routing Stuart's
command. It will probably be late before the
reports of . the battle are received, as the battle
field is 25 miles distant, with no telegraphic
communication. [We may infer fr2m this
that on Monday Hooker's headquarters wire
26 miles from Aldie.]

GENERAL : I moved with my command this
a. in. to Middleburg, attacked the cavalry feFce
of rebels under Stuart, and steadily drove lltiat
all day ; in fighting heavy loss ; drove iim
through Upperville into Ashby'eGap, took two
pieces of artillery, one being a Blakely gun,
and caissons, by blowing up one, and upwards
of GO prisoners—more coming in—a lieutenant
colonel, major and five other officers, besides a
wounded colonel and a large number of other
wounded left in the town of Upperville.
They left their dead and wounded upon the
field. Of the former I saw upwards of twenty.
We also took a large number of carbines, pis
tols and sabres; in fact, it was a most disas
trous day to the rebel cavalry, Our loss has
been very small. I never saw troops behave
better or under more difroult circumstances.
Very heavy charges were made and sabres used
freely, but always with great advantage to us.

named Howe, in Frederick township, Mont

the parties in the house and answered by horns
in different parts of the neighborhood. The
deserter fired from a window and shot Berta

BALTIMORE, June 21.—The rebels made their
appearance at 5 o'clock last evening, and about
7 o'clock a small body of cavalry 'reached the
Monocacy bridge, four miles this side of Fred

LATER FROM FREDERICK
BALTIMORE JUDO 21—Midnight.—A party
who left Frederick this morning says that the
rebels who came there last evening were only
a small squad, who passed through the town,
captured a few horses and left. This, squad
was in pursuit of some of our signal corps
from South Mountain.
Our informant says no rebels were known to
be nearer than South Mountain when he left
Frederick, at 8 o'clock.
LEES ARMY PROBABLY AT CHESTER HAP.
WASHINGTON, June 21.—The rebels are not
at Bull Bun, nor is Gen. Hill at Dumfries.
This contriliction is positive, notwithstanding
the currency given to the opposite rumor.
Bull Run and Dumfries have been visited, and
the rebels have not been seen.
From a variety of statement and speculation,
based upon respectable authority, it is ex
tremely probable that Gen. Lee is now at Ches
ter Gap with the main body of his army. This
is certainly consistent with information we
have heretofore received, and is a statement
generally believed in.
MEMPHIS, June 19, via Cairo, 21.—Official
advicee from Vicksburg to the 16th are re
ceived. The siege was progressing slowly but
surely. Our total loss during the past week
is estimated at less than forty. Not over eight

mon convicts. In answer, the keeper limply
remarked : "Captains, colonels and brigadiers
are all alike here--all reduced to the ranks."
When he , incidentally mentioned that he had
had a university of edimation, and was master
ofeleven. different languages, the keeper re
plied : "One language is all we have here, and
