Excitement is Piambrirg.
The New York Tribune of the 25th
Great excitement was caused in
Pittsburg yesterday by the aniiunce
mont that a number of heavy ocrdcatice
was to be shipped from the Allegharny
Arsenal to points at the south where
there were new forts not yet mounted,
and where the secessionists could get
them. The Qbvernment at Washington
was called upon to countermand the
order, as there were indications that the
people would resist their removal.
In the N. Y. Express of the 26th
find the following dispatches:
