PROCLAMATION OF THE GOVERNOR.
CITIZENS CALLED TO ARMS.
DEFEND THEIR HOMES.
Eakuikiivbo, July 30. Tbe most experienced
military men at this post are convinced that tbe
invaxion of tbe State ii by a large force, com
posed of aonic of tbe boat troops of Geaertil Lee'l
army.
It is alra believed tlmt the invaxlon is of a cha
racter too glKuntic to be regarded as a mere ri'l.
It would be rash to venture au opinion as to the
designs of tbe enemy, tbe point at which be in
tends to deliver a blow, or tbe territory he will
travene.
The capital of tbe Statu forma a tempting ob
ject. In hit contemplation IJaltimore prescuts
Its attractions and through that city tbe capital
of tbe nation is aaln doubtlcs yearned far by
these bold invaders.
Tbe telegraph operator left Hbippensburg, aad
tbe presumption ia thut tbe enemy aa thrown
cat a strong advanced position in that direction.
We have no coinmaniction with Chambers
burg. All that we know la that the ltebela en
tered and now hold that place.
General Couch la at Carlisle directing the neces
sary means of defense, the details of which caa
not be alluded to. Tbe presumption, is, ho.evr,
that he will be able to offer a stern resilience to
any advance that may be made In this direulsa.
rKOCLAHAUON l.V THE U0VEHO.
Pennsylvania Eheoitivk Chamhku, lUa
ism'80, July SO, 1801. The enemy have once
more entered Pennsylvania.
They occupied Chambersbnrg at 3 A. M. to
day with cavulry and artillery.
A few hours will develop their force and Inten
tions. It Is possible their movement may be
directed against tliiscity. ,
In view of such a contingency, I therefore call
upon the people of llarrUburg and vielnity to
organize at once to defend their homes.
Anna and ammunition will be delivered to
each organized company npon application to the
Adjutunt-General.
No master liuo the service of the State or of
the United States will be required.
(Bigned) A. O. Ct'aTtK.
' ' An Immense town meeting is now being held
in tbe Court House, and the people are enrolling
themselves for organisation to defend the city.

some of ihe enemy eni'scd tbe Potomac yes er-

Wakhimoton, July 30. From information re
ceived from np the river it would seem thut the
crossing by the Rebels at White's Ferry, yester
day morning, was by a party numbering less
thun a hundred.
Their Intention was doubtless to Intercept one
of our wagon trains; but, after inquiring of the
fanners if there were any Federal troops in the
Ticinlty, they returned to the Virginia side of tho
river, committing no depredation beyond carry
ing o(T a few horses belonging to private indi
viduals. Yesterday a detachment of twon'.y-eight men
of the 16th New York Cavalry visited Leosburg
on a leconnoitsaucc, where they unexpectedly eu
countered a force of tbe enemy, and nine of the
cavalryraen were captured by the Rebels. -
Moaeby, when last heard from, was at A.bby's
Gup with two hundred men and two pieces of
artillery.
Do special excitement has been created here
to-day by the news of the Rebel raid into Penn
sylvania. Facts are transpiring around us going
to show tbat active preparations are making by
the Government to frustrate any Rebel schomei
of invasion, thus inspiring confidence and creat
ing the hope that the Rebels may tarry long
enough on this aide of the river to enable us lo
get a fair blow at them.
The prevailing opinion Is that the nuretwrs of
tbe Rebels In Pennsylvania is overestimated. As

the wires concerning the Reiiel moveraan, the
Star states tbat last night a despa en roached
Baltimore positively averting the appearance of
a large Rebel force between Bouuslioro and
Hagerstown. This forenoon it turna ont that the
force In question was a body of our own troops
on the march in that vicinity.
From all Information received here it Ia thought
the HarrUburg telegrams concerning tho Penn
sylvania invasion are founded on guess-work
more than fact
It la definitely known here, via Frederick, that
so far only some Rebel Cavalry, with howitzers,
have crossed the Potomac. The demonstrations
nearF.dwaids' Ferry amount to nothing. O ir
forces here already occupy highly Importaut
positions. ,

true, vir.: that ere tbe conclusion of the diy's

and further, that the enemy left on the deld of
