The Situation.
The situation is becoming unpleasant, but
as the danger betObitt niore eppwrent, and the
rebel forces approach nearer and nearer, we
are pleased to say that, generally, our citizens
appear to be more calm than they were when
all was rumor and uncertainty. 'At this hour,
3 p. m. Saturday afternoon, we have no infor
mation that is at all reliable as to the numeri
cal strength of the invaders. Some place it
as high as 10,000 and others believe it exceeds
20,000. Our own opinion is that it is not half
10,000—indeed we question whether there is
at any one point a rebel force of 2,000 men.—
But be that as it may, we have evidenee that
they are within 25i miles of Harrisburg, and
that some skirmishing, resulting in casualties
to our troops, has occurred-
At 9 o'clock this morning, (Saturday,) the
State Department 'received a dispatch from
Gettysburg, Adams county, stating that the
rebels had captured a party of militia and kil
gfitieifrom Sergeant W. B. Chambers, of
the. Murray cavalry, gives an account of a skir
mish between a squad of the cavalry, com
manded by Lieut. Wm. Fisher, and the rebels,
at Holly Springs, just beyond Papertown,
Cumberland county, on the Baltimore turn
pike, six miles south of Carlisle. The skir
mish was quite a sharp affair, in which Wm.
Rudy, a respectable young man, son of Mr.
Jonas Rudy, of this city, was killed, and James
Crossareve wounded. The following members
of the watt/ally ware taken plows /mph
Weaver, Jacob Stiner, Richard Bucher, John
Dobert, Jacob Feig, James Irvin, John Storm
felts, D. Slack and John Bates. The latter
was captured in the Stone tavern at the
Springs, but not until he had killed two of the
enemy by shots from his revolver. We under
stand the boys behaved well, but were over
powered by numbers. The sympathy of every
heart in Harrisburg is with Mr. RUdy, the
father of the gallant young man who was slain.
SUNDAY, 10i a. X.—Brigadier General Knipe
has just arrived from his headquarters, at Oys
ter's Point, and assures us that no rebel infan
try had passed Newville up to six o'clock this
Nothing but cavalry had entered Carlisle,

From Michael Loudon, one of Col. Jennings'
men, captured at Gettysburg, we learn that
forty prisoners were taken at that place and
were quartered in the Court House, and after
words paroled. The regiment formed a line of
battle, and held the advance of the rebels in
check until CoL Jennings saw the rebel infan
try advance, when he retreated. They gave the
rebels several volleys, but it is not known with
what effeat?
SUNDAY Evntawn, 9 CeOLOCK.—The intelli
gence up to this time leads to the belief that
York is in possession of the enemy. What
their force is we cannot even conjeCture. This
estimated at any number between five hundred
and five thousand. We have no decided con
viction on the subject. •
LATER.—lntelligence just received states
that the enemy are at Wrightsville, York coun
ty; opposite Columbia. Oar troopd have blown
up a span of the bridge on the York county
side, and are cannonading the enemy from the
Columbia shore.
As respects the situation of affairs in the vi
cinity of the Capital, we learn from unquen
tionable authority, a volunteer aid, as Re be
lieve, of Gen. Couch, who was upon the spot,
that the cavalry scouts of the enemy are ad
vancing down the Carlisle turnpike, the' Trin
die Spring and Shiremanstown roads, and at 6

In moving in the enemy's country the ut
most circumspection and vigilance ate Ream
saTy, and the safety of. the army, and the suc
cess of the great object it has to aecomblish,
depend upon the observance of the most rigid
discipline. The Lieut. General commanding,
therefore, must earnestly appeal to the officers
and men of his command, who have attested
their bravery and devotion to the cause of their
country on so many fields, to yield a ready ac
quiescence in the rules required by the exigen
cies of the case.
All straggling
,and wandering from the
ranks and all marauding and plundering by
individuals are prohibited, upon pain of the
severest penalties kt. own to the service.
What is required for the use of the army will
be taken tinder regulations to be established
by the commanding general, according to the
usages of civilized warfare.

Mr. Given, of the firm of Given & Brother;

evening, states• that a rebel column passed
through Carlisle on Saturday', composed of in

The Governor's Proclamation.
Our Provincial Governor, Andrew G. Curtin,
has at length obtained permission from His
Excellency Abraham Lincoln to call out the
militia of the State for the defense of our bor
ders, and -has issued his proclamation, which
we publish in another column, and to Which
we invite attention, for the immediate enroll
ment of 60,000 men.
The Governor says that "the calls already
made for Volunteer militia in the emergency,
have not been met as fully as the 'crisis re
quires." The reason of this is evident to any
one having the least discernment, or whose•
eyes and ears were open to the acts and con
versation of those patriotic men who congre
gated here under the call made. They were ,
led to expect that the call was made in accor
dance with the .Gonstilution •of our fathers
and State laws, under which we have grown
so prosperous and great; but when they ar
rived hero and found that our State sovereignty
was disregarded, and that we had only a Pro-
vincial Governor, who issued the call by order
of Abraham Lincoln, and that they were to
be °WWI- - - ' L
. t. I e .. 1; -e' vii/e , ~to ' their homes.
This prevented others from coming forward,
and a gloomy apathy, such as precedes the
belief in some great and unavoidable calamity,
seized upon the whole people of the State.
Had we been blessed with a Governor de facto,
like him who presides over the destinies of tlit
State of New York, and bad the call been
issued when the first alarm of invasion was
given, we should now have one hundred thou-
Bout brave men in the field, nerved with the
fixed determination of sweeping the invaders
frpw the soil. If our teeming valleys are laid
waste, and our cities and towns sacked and
burned, we have only to thank the miserable
and short-sighted policy of the administration
at Washington, in their attempt to override
Constitutions and laws, and our Provincial
Governor, who lent himself as a mere tool to
carry out their designs.
But whatever ivay be thC fault of eitt Valeta,
it is clearly the duty of every citizen to protect
his native State from the invasion of the rebel
foe; and now that the armed legions of rebel
lion are thundering upon our borders and al
most at our doors, we 'call upon every true
man to come forward at once in respense to
this call of the Governer. The danger is im
minent, and if there is, the slightest delay it
may be too late to save 'our good old Common
wealth from devastation and destruction.
Rally, then, men of Pennsylvania-, to the aid
of your brethren on our southern borders, our
State and our common count y_
clip the following from the Harrisburg
Telegraph of Saturday morning :
"The rebel officers boast that the splendid
uniforms in which they appeared, and which
were remarked by the people of Gettysburg,
had been sent to them by their friends (the
copperheads) of the North."
Now this the Deacon knew to he a dastardly
lie when he penned it, and an insult ton ma
jority of the people of the North. The rebel
soldiers at Gettysburg belonged to Ewell's di
vision, who had just whipped the Abolition
General Milroy so disastrously at Winchester
and Martinsburg, and taken all the. baggage
belonging to his corps, and if the rebels had
on Federal uniforms they were doubtless ob
tained from this source.
Is it not outrageous that while ciev, Sey
mour, of New York, and Gov. Parker, of New
Jersey, are daily sending in their thousands
for the defence of Pennsylvania, and while at
least one-half the men who are flocking to the
borders from' our own State are D;mocrats,
that this vile Hessian should be permitted to
stigmatize them as ooPperbeads and Eiympa
thizers with rebellion? The truth is that the
cowardly renegade from Hesse Darmstadt, af
ter having packed up till his own property, and
sent most of it out of town, preparing to ske
daddle on the first appearance of danger, can
not bear to see Democrats standing up man
fully in defence of their State and Otriltary.

invhsiOns; while writetg froth the 'West warn
the people that inroads they be' expeeted into
Kentucky and the Northwest all through the
summer. The infamous and unpatriotic course
of the Abolition press in the North is the spur ,
which urges on the rebels to these inroads,
and if any man needs proof of the blackness
of their designs, he can see it in the attempt
now so desperately being made to transfer the
war to the North, and to give over our fair
fields and firesides to ruin and desolation at
the hands of the invader.
Ever since this war began, the Abolition
press throughout the land has been, from day
to day and from week to week, assuring the
rebels that all the Democrats in the North
sympathized with them in their efforts to ob
tain a seperate nationality, and would give
them every aid in their power. The national
administration too, by its repeated arrests of
Democrats all over the North and the suppres-
Olin of Demooratio papers, has given weight
and character to these vile slanders. Is it any
wonder then that the rebels, when they find
from the result of recent elections and the
general expression of public opinion, that the
Democrats are in large majority, should invade
the North ? They are assured by the repeated
acts of the Federal administration, by every
Abolition paper; from the New York Tribune
down to the Harrisburg Telegraph, and by
every Abolition orator, from Phillips down to
Robinson, that the Democrats are their friends,
ready to assist them whenever an opportunity
presents. Is it not natural, then, for them to
oonoindo that they have only to advance lath
the North in sufficient force to form a nucleus
around which Democrats could rally to ensue
'a complete revolution in their favor ?
The loyal people of the North and the Union
loving elements in the National and State. gov
ernments owe it to themselves and our sacred
cause to use such measures as will put down
these mischief-toalters ere they work more
harm than has yet befallen us. So long as
the rebels can be infatuated with the idea that
they have only to come North to gain friends,
so long will this war continue. While we use
every effort to -vanquish them in the field, we
must also make harmless their despicable al
lies in the North, who care neither for State
ights nor State duties, for National rights
or National duties, and heartily co-operate
with the rebels in their efforts to destroy the
Union. It is true the objects these fanatical
factions have in view are widely different; the
one hoping to extend and perpetuate slavery,
the other to destroy it; but the means' through
which they hope to accomplish their purposes
I are identical, to wit : the destruction of the
glorious Union founded by our fathers.
The power of the law against treason has
never yet been properly invoked in all its ma
jesty in the Northern States,. but the present
crisis may bring its ministers to a realizing
sense of their stern duty to punish all who fur
nish aid and comfort to the enemy.
We warn the Evening Bulletin, and others of
and the Nation, while professing to uphold it,
that if they do not change their.course, there
is a retributive justice—an avenging Nemesis
—which will sooner or later overtake them.
Lay on the Lash.
The Albany (N. Y.) &Wittman, a leading Ab
olition paper, on the subject of the raid into
Pennsylvania, says that. the rebel force i 3 not.
more than 10,000—probably not s,ooo—that
the strength of the invading army in Mary
land and Pennsylvania both, does not exceed
20,000, and concludes its ,remarks as follows ;
"HOW diegreceful bteemea the late 'tonic in

those who at first were inclined to rush to the

we have heard from good authority there were
more than•forty-siz mere joined from the city
of Harrisburg itself. Including the 27th N.
J. regiment, there are now more troops from
this State in Pennsylvania than from the city
of Philadelphia."
Though this comp:Wan id seemingly so fa
vorable to New Jersey, Gov. Parker, judging
from his late proclamation, thinks the troops
from that State are of no further use. He
" Whereas, The necessity no longer exists
for 'the citizens of the State to meet and or
ganize into companies, and report to the Adj u
tant General of the State as soon as possible,
to be organized into regiments as the of

know, however, that our successes on the
Mississippi rival those of our arms on the Po
tomac. It was stated in this city yesterday
morning that information had been received of
the landing of a heavy column of Federals at
some point on the York river. West Point is
the safest base of operations on that river, and
we learn that yesterday, when the train on
the Richmond and York River railroad left
Whitehouse, there were some Yankees at the
point below. The rumor mentioned may be
baseless, though the Fortress Monroe corres
pondent of Baltimore papers, writing on the
18th, says that important movements are in
progress in that vicinity. With their forces
from Suffolk and the penitiittla, the Yankees
might risk a feint on Richmond, with the hope
of turning general attention from Washington.

H ARRISBURG, June 28, 1888.
No. 44.
In organizing the troops, tesponding to the
Proclamation of the Governor, this day issued,
calling for SIXTY THOUSAND men for the

which Camps Commanders and skillful Sur
geons will be appointed.
11. Squads and companies will be received

General for this purpose.
111. Officers will be elected—company offi.•

Governor of the sold Commonwealth.
The enemy is advancing in force into Penn

twenty-three miles of Harrisburg, and other
columns are moving by Fulton and. Adams
counties, and it can no 1012 gar be doubted that
a formidable invasion of our'State is in actual
The calls already made for volunteer militia
in the exigency have not been met as fully as
the crisis requires. I, therefore, now issue
this,, my proclamation, calling for SIXTY
THOUSAND MEN to come promptly forward
to defend the state. They will be mustered
info the,service of the State for the period of
NINETY DAYS, but will be required to serve
only so much of the period of muster as the
safety of our people and honor of our State may
They will made - stein at points to be desig
nated in the general order to be issued this day
by the Adjutant General of Pennsylvania,
which order will also set
. forth the details of
the arrangements for organization, clothing,
subsistence, equipments and supplies.
I will not insult you by inflammatory ap
peals. A people who want the heart to defend
their soil, their families and their firesides, are
S not worthy to be accounted men. Heed not
the counsels of evil disposed persons, if such
there be in your midst. Show yourselves what
you are—a free, loyal, spirited, brate, vigorous
race. Do not undergo the disgrace of leaving
% your defence mainly to the citizens of other
States. In defending the soil of Pennsylvania
we are contributing to the support of our na
tional government, and indi r cating our fidelity
to the national cause.
Pennsylvania has always heretofore re
sponded promptly to all the calls made by the
Federal Government, and I appeal to you now
not to be unmindful that the foe that strikes at
our State, strikes through our desolation at the
life of the Republic, and our people are plun
dered and driven from their homes solely be
cause of their loyalty and fidelity to our free
People of Pennsylvania, I owe to you all my
faculties, my labors, my life. You owe to your
country your prompt and zealous services and
efforts. The time has now come when we must
all stand or fall together in defence of our
State, and in support of our government. Let
us so discharge our duty that posterity shall
not blush for us. Come heartily and cheer
fully to the rescue of our noble Commonwealth.
Maintain now your honor and freedom.
