Rumor upon ruiner reaches us. Every hour

that Gen. Knipe, commanding at Chambers

conseqttentse 'of the advance of a very superior

the,tiniid people o(the city: A sudden attack

and great' was the consternation in conse

A very short timeafter this comfortable infor

not far olf, he sent out his cavalry ad OCOnta.
At Some distance, which we did not learn they
encountered the enemy and had a skirmish, in
which they lost two men and six horses killed.
Thereupon they retreated upon the main body,
giving intelligence of the rebel advance in
some force. They were not followed. Gen.
Knipe, OH readying this information, fall back
to nearer 'Chamberaburg, Where he formed a

We take the liberty of adopting, for Olte
benefit of all absolute eabmissionists to national
euecutive mandates, and particularly for the
-enlightenment of our own State Execuare, the
following sound observations of that staunch
-and able conservative paper, the New York
Zouracti of Commerce. Under the caption
4 , Military Necessity," it says :—This doctrine,
'which has been used by the radical 'party to
justify whatever the President sees fit to do,
may require and receive some modification in

that Mr. Vallandighean shouldhe elected doe

theuimagine a rebel raid into Ohio such asis
reported in Indiana. -It his already taken
place near the mouth of the Kanawha, and
may happen again. Now read the .Constitu
tion of the United States, and it will be fond
that when a State is actually invaded, or even
in imminent danger of an invasion, the State
may make war. MI the war-making powers
are at once vested inathe State. - For all pur
poses of war the State heathen evetr power
necessary to carrying on the war, and the only
limits imposed on, that_ are by the Constitution
of the United States and of the State itself.—
The Governor they becomes the contrander-in
chief of the forces, and if there were anything
in the radical doctrines of "military neces
sity," Mr. Vallandighisca would-at ones be in
position to declare-martial law, suspend news
papers, arrest oitisene, and do all that he; from
his political poi,* of view,, might regard an
necessary for the safety of the State According
to his notions, nor could a radical open , his
morth to object. Will any radical newepaper
nnititike to disptite,this proposition? No.—
It is too plain to be doubted. Now if,the doc
trine 'were a correct one,. what ought: he todo
such a case, as a 'conscientious, honist gover

It is well for them that the opposition do not

" Every man to hia post," says Forney, in

post.is in the kitchen of the White House, a
very safe position; from whence the renegade
and reprobate may call the honest yeomanry
Of , the Country to arnis, . to the hardships and
dangers of active war, without any risk to his
person; and without depriving himself of any
of the henries of ' life in which he , so much
delights. Let the windy Leaguer buckle on
his own armor, and, on his way to the: field of
battle, call upon others to follow, and he will
meet with , more success.' We have no faith in
these .66y-et-he tne patri.443, papspered by the
government, who are eternally calling upon
othersto save the country, but never thethselves
set the example. "Ln the way of present
duty," says this•patriot poodle of the kitchen,
u nothing io too small, nothing too great for
the patriot to undertake." Well, we assign to
him a "small" service. Let him raise a com
pany of his pet eontrabands in Washington
and march against the enemy. He would be,
if we can believe his own eulogies of the bleak
race, in congenial Company, and hie country
men would think better of him than they ever
did before.. Let him, by all means, head a
negro company and do what he has never yet
done, render the State some service.
We publiehed a few days since a very sound,
conservative speech; made by Senator Trum
bull to, an Abolition meeting at Chicago, du
ring the recent disturbance there in reference
to Gen. Burnside's order No. 38, suppressing
the Tiines newspaper ? For uttering, that
speech, which, did him great credit as a stateg=
man and supporter of the Constitution and
constitutional freedom, he has brought down
upon his head the wrath of the whole pack of
Illinois fanatics. With that .party he is now
"a dead cook in the pit," and for no other
reason than that be •refused his - emotion 'to
lawleisness 'and Pretiidential and military
usurpation. One of the Chicago Abolition
organs thus speaks of him: :
" Senator , Trumbull takes his stand by the
side of Vallandigham and Fernando Wood !
Freedom of speech to utter treason and de
stroy .t#e Union is now his doctrine. .
"It is just. such conduct as that of Mr.
Trumbull in Chicago that will put a Copper
head itr the Presidential. chair. It is this con
temptible, waking cowardice , of leading men,
who should- stand up for the right, that makes
the caused' the traitors strong.
"Mr. Trumbull is recognized as tke champion
of Copperkeadism; and he cane hate the satis
faction of reflecting that- he• and his -friends
have done more injury to the authority of the
President in one hour than they can WET remedy
in the balance of their worthless lives!"

A BATTLE OFF CHARLESTON
BOSTON; June 22.—A letter in the Herald,
from the blockading fleet'off Charleston, says :
On the afternoon of the 17th instant thei rebel
batteries on Mortis Leland opened fire upon the
troops on Folly Isituid, and for half an hour
no notice was taken of the firing by our forces.
Pre,sently the, - gunboats Pawnee and Uommp
dore M'Donougl steamed up to within good
range of the rebel batteties, and poured in a
deadly_fise from their heavy. guns. The" Union
batteries of Folly Island now opened their fire
and for three hours the ehdt and shell flew
tkiek arid 'fast. We could see that the rebel
shot fell short, while those from our batteries
and gunboats burst in the'rnidtlit of the rebel
batteries. The firing lasted un til sunset, but
the result of the engagement was not fully
known. The rebels were seen carrylag'off a
number of killed and wounded.. During the
firing the rebel rams oame out from behind
Sumpter and proceeded down about two miles
from that fort, where they remained until the
engagement was over, not daring to take part
in the fight.
The same night the whole , roadstead and
shipping were brilliantly illaminated for seve
ral hours by an extensive conflagration raging
in Charleston. The heavens were lighted ,up
for miles around, and the destruction of
property must have been very heavy.
