Wu hare some interesting particulars oi
(he lebel invasion of Maryland. About
noon, Friday last, some fire hundred rebel
cara'ry endeavored to cross the Potomac at
Edwjrd's Ferry, approaching from Lees
burg. Our forces, consisting of one infantry
and one cavalry regiment and a battery, op
posed the passage, and repulsed them after
a sh:irp contest. Yesterday morning, about
2 o'elock, a second, attempt to cross the
rive: by the fords of Edward's, Conrad's,
No! n's ind Smith's ferries, was made, and,
under the cover of darkness, proved sue
restful. These ferries are all situated East
of Point of Rocks, and theformer (Edward's)
is fire miles Southwest of Poolesville, and
some forty miles distant from Washington.
The rebel force npon thia occasion consist
ed (f between two and three regiments of
- car i!ry, and aa soon as Poolesville was in
ves'ed, our packets hastily communicated
wit i oar troops in the rear, whose numbers
being numerically small, thought it best to
beM a retreat. Some fifteen ot twenty sol
dier.' belonging to the First Maryland Regi
ment are among the missing and are sup
posed to bare been captured.
Our force at Poolesrille, at the time con
sisted of the infantry regiment already
named, the First Massachusetts caralry,
and a detachment of the Twe'lih Pennsyl
vania cavalry. From this point the rebel
cavalry proceeded to Darnestown, a little
. to rn situated on Seneca creek, nine miles
'distant from PoofSaville, in a t-outbeasterly
direction and communicating in a diiect
route with the district of Georgetown, Wash
ington, D. C. This point was reached at
about half past four o'clock this morning,
and the cavalry entered th9 town pell-mell,
.almost before our picket!, were aware of
their approach. At this point there has
b-en established a branch office of the mil
itsrry telegraph, communicating with ths

" The rebels crossed between the ferries
f jrding the river. The previous demon
etrations of camp fires, &c, were ruses to
mislead our forces as to their reaf designs
'fhey marched directly to White Oak
Springs, three miles from Frederick. The
first acj was to destroy a tunnel bridge
across the Monocacy.
They are understood to be under the com
' mand of Jackson . They reached Frederick
iibout 10 o'clock. Discipline was very
irtrict, guards being posted at all the liquor
.lihops, and private property being rigidly
respected. The rebels have possession ol
jfie Baltimore and Ohio railroad at that
point, and have torn up the track and de
stroyed the culverts in several places east
of Frederick. They have also cut the tele
graph wires. All the rolling stock at Fred
erick waa saved except one locomotive,
which became disabled.
' From private sources we learn that when
' -the rebels advanced upon Poolesville they
-look prisoners the cavalry which were there
opon picket duty, and paroled all the pri
vates. Captain Chamberlain, of the Firs:

. Agreeably to public notice given by hand
bills, and through the different Democratic
papers in the county, there was a Demo
cratic Mass Meeting held at Sereno, Colum
bia county, on Saturday, the 6th day of Sep
tember, 1862, which was largely attended.
The people began to gather about half-past
eleven o'clock A. M. and continued to ponr
in, in large delegation, until nearly 2 PM.
They come in regular old-fashioned style ;
with lour horse teams, rickory trees plant
ed upon the wagons, Stars and Stripes float
ing and Martial Mnsic playing.
The Lairdsville Brass Band was present,
and was quite an acquisition to the meet
ing. They enlivened the occasion with
some of their best pieces.
Among the first objects of attraction was
the appearance of a, Military Company,
well equipped, although rather fantastical
ly, and in drill not inferior to many on the
field of battle. They were a good looking
company ripe for the war. The company
on arriving at the spot selected for the hold
ing of the meeting, gave three cheers (that
would have done credit to a whole Brigade)
for the "Constitution and the Union," and
three cheers for the "Stars and Stripes."
This was the largest meeting we ever had
the pleasure of attending in this part of the
county. We fear we would not be discharg
ing our whole duty as Secretaries did we
not state the fact that this meeting was
honored with the presence of a large num
ber of ladies, both old and young, all of
whom Beemed to manifest great interest in
the terrible sta'.e of our country, and exhib
ited much anxiety, as well as the men, to
hear talking on that point.
The meeting was organized at 2 o'clock,
p. m., by the selection of the following per
sons to act as officers :
1RAM DERR, ESQ,
Jacob Evans Esq., Lewis Schuyler.
Thomas A Funston,
Joseph R Patton,
Luther A. Garman.
Samuel Kisner, Esq
A. J. Alberison,
David C. Albenson, George Derr,
Jeremiah S. Sanders, Wm'son H. Jacoby.
The President on taking his seal made a
few remarks, thanking the meeting for the
honor they had conferred upon him, besides
briefly staling the object of the meeting in
a very appropriate and becoming manner.
On motion, Col. L. L Tate was invited to
address the meeting. The Colonel came
forward and spoke to the people at consid
erable length, and in such a manner as to
command their whole and earnest attention.
His remarks were patriotic, national, and
soundly Democratic, and were received
with rounds of applause.
Next, Thomas Chalfant was called upon
the stand, who addressed the audience in
an earnest and able speech, nearly an Lour's
length. Mr. Chalfant is a national, Consti
tutional, and Union loving Democrat, and
his speech, it published, would well attest
to this fatt. The people of Greenwood,
Pine, and surrounding townships, hold Mr.
Chalfant in high estimation as a loyal man
and true patriot, notwithstanding the hard
names he is called by somaof his Abolition
enemies in his own county as well as in
this His remarks at this meeting will
have good effect, and may be long live to
oft repeat them.
At the close of the speeches a patriotic
song was sung by two sons of Iram Derr.
ft was well sung and received with ap
plause. It would be no more than proper to state
that Hon. Paul Lidy was advertised to
be present and speak at this meeting but
failed to reach the place on account of his
taking sick while on his road, after having
traveled some considerable distance, other
wise be most certainly would have been
present and spoke to the people.
A vote of thanks was given the speakers,
after which the meeting adjourned in good
order. Sigued by the Oificers.
Ei-Got. Porter 1 Tree Patriot.
A meeting was held in Harrisburg on Fri
day in response to the Governor's Procla
mation, recommending the loyal men of
the Commonwealth to organize and arm for
any emergency which might arise from the
crisis in which we ars involved, which was
addressed by Governor Curtin, Ex-Governor
Porter, Parson Brownlow and the Rer.
F. Moore. We desire more particularly to
call attention to the following extract from
the speech of Ex-Governor Porter who
"He was glad to see so many of his old
friends before him he was glad to witness
this demonstration on the part of a people
in whose loyalty he had the most implicit
confidence. Gov. Porter remarked that all
political wrangling should and must give
way to the common danger and imperative
necessity of defending the Government and
restoring peace to the country. He had
been called a politician a partizau but
he renounced all party ties and gave up all
political preferences, that he might the bel
ter serve his country in the hour of its dan
ger. He recognised no distinction but that
whicb distinguished between loyalty and
treason. He was for his country ready to
support any man who was fighting in its
defence, and willing to applaud any Ad
ministration that was laboring for its peace.
Old as he was, he would not shrink from
the duty of a soldier, but would shoulder
his musket whenever it became necessary,
to defend his country with his life. lie
could not, and would not survive the Union.
When that was dismembered, he no longer
wished to live."
Ths citizens of this place have been ob
serving the order of GovernorCurtin, asking
every able bodied man. to meet and drill
two hours each day, by closing up their
places of business, partially, at 3 o'clock in
the afternoon, and forming into a compa
ny, Captained by John M. Cbemberlm,

and should be more generally appreciated
by our people. The Governor will forward

The papers of Tuesday evening tell us 6
the invasion of Maryland by the" Rebel
troops, and that a large force are entering
the State of Pennsylvania near' Hanover;
York county. The rebels are said to ,b
coming in our State at that point jvith ihi
in'er.tion of destroying the Northern Cen
tral Railroad. The , rumor that they ar
making an advance upon Hagertown IK
not confirmed by the papers. That tht
rebels are at Frederick, Maryland, in a forcu
of 30,000 is pretty well sustained. It ap
pears that they purchased all the shoes they
could find in that plsce and paid for ths
same in Confederate scrip.
The rebels are reported, by dispatch re
ceived at this place, to be in Pennsylranff
with a force of 150.000 troops and 203
pieces of Artillery. It would seem thi t
they were making their way to Harrisburg
to take possession of our Capital, his
thought by some that they design paying
visit to Philadelphia previous to calling on
Gov. Curtin. They will be toarmly welcom
ed in the event they attempt either enter
prise. It is true so far, in making the inva
sion, they have met little opposition; bjt
remember our Generals are not asleep. If
they do not bag the enemy it will be a won
der to us. The rebel fforces'will not le
able to get back as easy as they came in or
we mistake the character of our Generals.

Arrest of Cliarlfs IngfrsoII.
The New York IVcrU, a Republican pa
per, notices the addressof Mr. Ingsnoll,
for forne expressions in which he was ar
rested, and asysjhat if there is treason in
it,it will pozzle a good many sensible peo
pie to find it out; further, that the Admin
istration greatly mistake the temper of the
people of tfiis country, if they suppose tha.
good will result from such arrests for ex
pression of opinion, or that they will long
be tolerated. The World is right. The Ad
ministration is blind, indeed, if they tlink
that the freedom of speech or of the press
can be stopped by an arbitrary process, or
that a people so long accustomed to exer
cise their constitutional rights will bear to
any great extent or for any great length of
time the despotic mandates of the Wai Of
fice. Hitherto they have borne oppression
prorapted'by the loftiest and holiest patriot
ism, rather than add to the present perils
of the country by resistance; but a time
may come when patience will cease Id be
a virtue, and men will be forced to tun up
on their oppressors, or submit to be slaves.
To the lofty sonl, tyranny, in any form it
can assume, is odious, and those who have
avaited themselves of the present trying
hour to play the despot, may find to their
co6t that it is dangerous to press tha ex
periment too lar upon a people accustom
ed to freedom.
In what consists the treason impu ed to
Mr In gersoli We have looked in ' vain
through his address for what the Pres calls
expressions of a " treasonable chars cter"
Did he impute extravagance, corruption, fa
vorilism to the Government 1 We have
but to refer to the reports of Republican
Congressional investigating comnittees
published with the sanction of Congrt ss un
der the very eyes of the Administration, for
the most ample corroboration of the charge.
Did he insinuate that there was a I ick of
brains,symptoma of imbecility at Wishing
to n ? Phillips tells us that the PresI tent is
a man of very moderate capacity-that there
is not brains enough in the whole Cabinet
to make one first-class statesman Pillsbu
ry calls the head of the Administration a
turtle and Greely tells him pointedly, in hi
letter, that he has been false to his party
and faithless to his country, that men and
means have been lavishly placed at !iis dis
posal, and he has not employed them to
any useful purpose ; that Congress passed
acts to aid him, and he has disregarded
them. In short, he goes to the very verge
of charging him with perjury and treason.
For every charge Mr Ingersolt made
against the government he had the very
best Abolition authority. He did not go
half a far as either Phillips, Pillsbury or
Greely and yet neither of these men has
been arrested for uttering treaonab e senti
ments, and Mr. Ingersoll has. For this par
tiality, or rather gross injustice, lot one
reason can be assigned Phillips, Pillsbury
and Greeley are Abolitionists, Ingsrsoll i
a Democrat! Who dare deny this 1 Brazen
as he is and willing to take upon himself
almost any supportable weight of infamy,
even Forney dare not. It is too manifest,
too palpable to be concealed or denied.
And how much longer are we expacted to
bear this injustice patiently ? To v,hat far
ther extent is our patriotism to be taxed 1
Mind we do not ak for the imprisonment
of brawling Abolitionists for exerc sing the
freedom of speech and of the pr ss. We
hold that all such arrests are arbitrary and
unconstitutional, but if Government will
persevere in making them, we ask that they
eh all be made impartially, and not confined
exclusively to Democratic ofienJers. In
short, we ask for justice, and we warn the
Government that we have grown v. eary al
most beyond endurance ot persecution.

More State Prisoners-
Our town was startled on Friday evening
last by the announcement that Mr. Ira Da
venport, of Plymouth, had been arrested
and lodged in jail in.thls borough, by Agib
Ricketts, Esq., Chief of Police. We tried
in vain to ascertain the charge against Mr.
Davenport, but could learn nothing funher
than that it had been done in pursuance of
the recent order of the War Department,
clothing all Chiefs of Police with authority
to arrest persons who were suspected of
disloyal practices, discouraging enlist
Later in the evening two other arrests
were made, viz : George B Kulp, Register
of the county, and E. B Chase, District At
torney. They also were committed to pris
on. All three of them petitioned for a hear
ing before Judge Conyngham on a writ of
habeas corpus. The Judge granted the tear
ing, and they were accordingly taken be

the Chief of Police declined to make his
answer until the expiration of the time al

could communicate with the War Depart

The Rebel Scouts Passing
JACKSON AT LEESBURG
Wafehinglon.-September 5 The follow
ing items are gathered from newspapers
and private sources :
It u believed that the rebels hate cross
ed in some force this side of the Point of
Rocks, and subsequently recrosed into
Va., as though hesitating to make the ex
periment of getting a lodgment in Mary
land. The rebels have thrown shells'across the
river at canal boats, &c, which, however,
did no damage.
A man, professing to have made his es
care from the neighborhood of Leesburg on
Wednesday by swimming the river, arri
ved within our lines te-day. - He states that
Stonewall Jackson had entered Leesburg
with his troopa, and was pushing towards
Harper's Ferry, and Longstreet wMi con
siderable Jorce, was marching in the tame
The rebels are well supplied with artill
ery. Most of the Union people about Win
chester and Leesburg had made their es
cape into Maryland. Others were captured
by their secession neighbors while making
the attempt, and were thrown into prison.
Upon the receipt of the intelligence that
Jackson was marching towards Leesburg,
rebel flags were displayed by many of the
inhabitantSjin token of their joy at his com
ing. LATE AND IMPORTANT
FROM THE SEAT OF WAR.
The enemy make a crossing below tho
Point ol Rocks, but withdraw again to the
Virginia side. Rumored engagement at
Harper's Ferry. Our Force within sta
king Distance of All the Fords. Rebel
.raid at Ball's crossroads.
Washington, Sept. o It U believed in
military circles here that the rebels have
crossed in some force this side of the Point
of Rocks, and subsequently for the most
part, retreated back into Virginia, as though
hesitating to make the experiment of trying
to get a tootbold in Maryland.
We have rumors of an engagement last
evening at Harper's Ferry, which probably
grew out of the fact that the rebels yester
day threw a few shells acro6 the river at
canal boats, &c, which however did no
Gen. McClellan and staff are laboring
night and day, with intense industry to get
the whole army booo into the best possible
Large masses of our troops continue to
be marched night and day, to positions
within striking distance of the river's fords,
the delay ot the rebels in making their ex
pected effort having accorded the necessary
time in which to make dae preparation for
their reception wherever they may appear
in threatening numbers.
If a battle occurs in this reaion, shortly,
the rebels must meet more than twice as
many disciplined troops as were massed
against them under Gen's. Pope and Burn
side, besides the very heavy force of new
levies that have been arriving here for three
weeks past, by thousands daily.
In the course of last night a small body
of rebel cavalry is 6aid to have made a raid
on the front, opposite Ball's Cross Ro.ids,
tiKpturing twenty-five N. Y. cavalry and a
mall train of wagons, the latter beiog" re
taken from them by a Federal scouting cav
alry force ere tbey could run it off.
RUMORED CROSSING of the POTOMAC.
Baltimore, Sept. 5 The city has been
agitated for the last twenty-four honrs with
a variety of rumors, stating that a force of
rebels had crossed the Potomac. at NoUnds
Ferry, the object being supposed, to be to
destroy the Catoctin bridge.. . and thns cut
off the communication between the United
States troops a! Harper's Ferry, and those
at the Point of Rocks. The whole state
ment is now discredited, there being noth
ing confirmatory of the reports, and they
are generally disbelieved. Some one has
probably mistaken friends for enemies.
This impression i confirmed by the fact
that the railroad and Telegraph wired have
not been disturbed.
Gen. Pope has been relieved of his com
mand aithe Potomac, and placed in charge
of the Northwestern army. He has already
gone to his new field of action. A few more
such Generals as Pope and we would
not have one in Virginia. He is the man
our Abolition frieods hold in such high es
teem. For every little torn or maneuvre
he makes with his army these abolitionists
are ready to throw up their hats and shout
glory. There is nothing in him, and the
President has found it out at last, and is
acting accordingly. General McDowell is
another blood-sucker on the Government,
not worth a picayune to the Federal army.
He has been dismissed from his command.
His bravery has been questioned for a long
time, and at present it is pretty well un
derstood that he i& a coward. His qualifi
cations for a General, otherwise are of the
first order. General Banks still holds his
position. He has done more than many
other Generals in the field and has been
Isn't it Treason ? We heard on of the
delegates to the Republican County Con
vention, on Monday last, denouncing the
whole set, after adjournment, as "a set of

vise Dr. John to look after the fellow. Ii
won't do to let him run loose. He might
blab all he knew. The fellow must cer
tainly have forgotten to "lock up his pocket
book," before mijirig in that crowd. His
opinion of that political conglomeration is
certainly not as complimentary as it might
have been. But isn't it treason, in the
worst form, to rail thus against the Repub
lican party ? It is, it must be ! A rope!

The following appointments have been
made by Gov. Curtin : Commissioner to

Silver, of Berwick. Examining Surgeon,
Dr. C. F. Harrison, of this place. These
appointments will suit the people pretty
generally. They are fair and honorable
We understand that there will be a Mass

purpose of commemorating the Anniversary

The iggrcuate Qncta of Troops to be raised
by Each County.- '
" The following table shows the number of 'r
troops to be furnished by ihe several coun
ties. The qnotas embrace all the troops
called for since the commencement of the
war, excepting the three month's men.
The number assigned to each coanty will
be apportionted among the several town
ships, and boroughs andprecincts by .the
Commissioner, in accordance with the en
rollment ; and he will credit each township,
precinct, &c, with the men already furnish
ed, as shown by the enrollment, and make
a draft for the number necessary to fill the
quota, unless volunteers are furnished on
or before the day fixed for thedralt. Cred
it cannot be allowed for teamsters, mechan
ics in the army, men enlisted in regular
army or marines, or for volunteers enlist
ed in regiments of other States. Several
counties have already raised their full qno
tas, and there will be no draft iu such coun
ties. There will aUo probably be a'special
draft io fill up the old regiments in the field
although the probability of such special
draft is remote. We have, however, an

We learn that the citizens of Fishinf creek
township have raised a bounty of s-50 for
each Volumeer thai enlists in ihe war from
that township, in order that they may rai-e
