The troops had been rein forced to about ten 'thousand men. Batteries were placed at all the vulnerable points and the war vessels were drawn up in position -to sweep an iuvading force. The Seventh Regiment had not arrived , but were supposed to be somewhere- bet ween Annapolis and Washington. The Secessionists were reported to have built a battery across the river from Mount Vernon, and to have faced it with railroad iron after the manner of the Cumniing's Point battery at Charleston.

'. . tyThe Legislature of Pennsylvania has passed an act making any connivance with the public enemy a felony punishable by ten years' imprisonment and $5,000 fine. The Pennsyl- vasans are mtn-tering in great force for the war. Seven Companies have already been raised in Pottsviile. A regiment in Philadelphia, 1000 strong, comprising the Irish Companies of the city, have offered their services to the Govern - .ment. The military are rapidly gathering at Harrisburg. Gov. Bicles, late Democratic V. S. Senator, has come out strong for the support of the Administration and the energetic pros? eculioq of the war. " HJThe Democratic Governors of Kentucky and North Carolina have replied to the requLsi tion of the President for troops, refusing point blank to furnish them. . Prominent gentlemen from these Slates, now in Washington say, how ever, that these Governors do not fully repre sent the people and that both Kentucky and North Carolina will supply vo!uu(eers to the Federal army. ' rSf-Tbe correspondent of the New York Worfb who went with the fleet down to Charles ton, relates f Major Anderson-, When on board the Baltic the following: "In speakinz of the late troubles, he spoke very cautiously.- and did ' not charge any one with wrung or deceit: but, aaid he: "I hare all the corrcpomlcnct en both tide in raiard to my late fott. trhicJi, of courK, are Ihe properly of my government?' From this conversation I' know that Major Robert At reon can ihoie a dean record. But I also feel that there arc those who woulk rather die than have that record publish ed. - It is hoped that the public may be per mitted to read all tue correspondence between the act and the promt administrations and the gallant Major, and the public will respect the Major. . To the Public. A report is in circulation that I was dischargd from the employ of Mr. L. ilavem. Merchant in Millersburg, for having volunteered to defend the Flag of m v conntrv. I deem it but an act of jus tice to Mr. M., who ever treated me kindly, to say that there is no foundation whatever for the JOHNSON WIGGINS. April 24th, 1861. Who Makes War. We live under a Government based on a written Constitution. That Constitution requires every functionary and (on occa sion) evciy citizen to support and uphold it. ' It expressly prescribes that all duties nnd Imposts shall be' - uniform throughout the Union, ihe President, on his inau guration, takes a solemn oath to enforce tbe laws. Ho lays perjury on his soul if be docs not id good laiili endeavor to do so. To let the revenue go uncollected one half our seaboard is to paralyze and ulti mately preclude its collection anywhere. To allow rebels and traitors to intercept and misappropriate whose revenues is even worse than to let them remain uncollected. A Government that would lamely submit to this confesses itself a humbug and a bas tard. "Either govern or abdicate is the ob vious dictateot' common decency.- "'. If a highwayman were to poke his rifle and Lis head into a stage-conch and demand tbe passengers' wallets and purses under penalty of death, who could blame that passenger who resisted as a peace-breaker and a bioodshedder? Who would not sny to any remonstrant, "Address yourself to the robber it is hi who "breaks the peace not the brave defender of "Property and Right!" There is no peace there can be none on any other basis than that of respect for constituted authority and submission to law. They who-defy the legally constitu ted authorities who break and trample down tbe laws who have stolen property and fired at the flag of our Union are, heforo God and man responsible for what ever of bloodshed may result from their wicked rebellion. Let us have peace ins tan t,"per feet, last ing peace; but only on the basis of sub mission and obedience to the laws. That obedience, we have nil sworn to fender it is our simple duty to render it it is the imperitive duty of the Government to re quire it. : Peace on the basis of letting every one who choses to defy the laws, re sist the laws, "trample on the laws, would be a stupendous lie, a hideous mockery. That is not peace which leads inevitably through lawlessness to anarchy. Who are for the Union, tbo Constitu tion, and the enforcement of the Laws! Let them show it in tbe crisis now upon usl Thousands have been talking of their de votion to the Union-; and let them back their words by their, deeds! The Govern ment is about to vindicate its rigbt to ex ist to assert its authority and set forth its power. Let us see who stands by it, and who propose to substitute the Spanish American riegn of pronuuciamentous and revolutions for the peaceful supremacy of Law ! Mark tbe men who prove reereant in this hour of our country's trial JV T Tribune. ' Balitmore As It Is. A gentlemen who arrived here lost even ing from Baltimore, describes tb6 condition of things in that city as horrible in the extreme. NotwithsUnding the lying ru mors to the contrary, the fact is, that a majority of the people are true to the U nioo and the Government. But the mer chants on tbe one hand, and the dregs on the ' other are Secessionists. The great middle.class of mechanics and traders are unwavering in their loyalty to tbe Govern ment. . But they are cowed down by the fact that the city authorities are against them. - The police force is headed by a d.es parado, Marshal Kane, ' who,' we know belched forth his threats on the pavement of the Sun office on Friday, that io 3 days there would not be a Union man dare say thut he was a Union man. -. lis is suDDor- ted by the entire force of office-holders iust displaced, and in their combined bauds Baltimore is going through a reign of terror. rhihdephia Inquirer 22d. -L.

Tbe traiu by which he came was the lastubat got through, the bridges having been broken down within three hours after he passed over them. The night before be left it became evident that those who wished to get out of tbe Capital at all would have to do it at once Great num bers of ladies passed northward on Thurs day evening, most Noribern men having sent ibeir farailes to a place of safety and remained themselves lo await the course of events. - Great excitement reigned in this city. Secession sentiments were openly or secretly professed by large numbers of the citizens and people from ihe South. No Noribern man considered himself safe un less he enrolled himself as a volunteer, and thus came under the protection of his fel low soldiers. - The sentiment of tbo people of the dis trict is about equally divided, tbe Seces sionists being mostly a desperate class of men. Tbe entire force cf troops in the city on Friday morning was about 5,000 of whom nearly half wero enrolled in the city itself. To these latter it would be dangerous to trust too much, as hundreds of the Secessionists would think nothing of taking the onlh of fidelity to the Union iu order that they might secure an advan tageous position for tbeir'in tended Ueason. Washington must be saved by Northern aid, if it is to be saved at all. By Sunday morning the number of Iroops in Washington propably reach eight or ten thousand. In addition to these, three ships of war fully armed arid equip ped are there. - A batlerry of cannon is placed at the end of the Alexandria bridge. Companies of soldiers are picket ed all around the city, nnd on the avenues lending to it. Flying Artiiiery stand ready for instant service whenever required. Guards of observation are stationed along the railroad between Baltimore and Wash ington, though not insufficient force to pre serve 'the property if attacked by a large force. The members of the Government aro de termined on a desperate defense if attack ed, and it is firmly believed -in Washington thai the Southern army, if victorious, will find nothing to occupy but a heap of ru ins. Hemmed in on all sides as by a wall of fire, the Government and its supporters iu ibe National Capitol will fight lo the last aud will destroy what they cannot save from capture. It is feared that Virginia is gathering a large army to rush in on Washington and capture it before further precautious be la ken, and that Virginia troops will be brought up secretly lo prevent ibu arrival of any more Northern volunteers. It is be lieved that Ben McCuIIough is still secret ly hovering around the Capital, maturing bis plans for a bold stroke. Tbe Governor of Viginin has issued a proclamation, call ing tbo entire Virginia militia into the held. Tbo Secession Ordinance of Virginia was passed under the most coercive mens ures. 1 hose who-voted agaiust.it were threatened with death and are flying from the State in order to tave their necks. Carlisle and Dent escaped lo Washington. Sherrard Clemens is under arrest.- The train that brought our informant to Har- risburgh contained a delegate in disguise. A New York friend on the cars was on his way to Western Virginia to bring away tho family of the delegate. Spies dog ihesteps of all ine aati-sccession delegates. Suuthem spies are scattered through Pennsylvania giving information of tbe proceedings. They have been telegraphing that there is no enthusiasm, that volun teers refuse lo come forward, and that the North will be an easy prey to the Southern army. Gov. Curtin has been made aware of these facts, and has taken possession of the wires so as lo prevent tbe transmission of such lying intelligence, At Ilamsbtirgb on i riday there were 2,500 troops in camp, armed, but badly provided with blankets and camp necessa ries. Gov. Curtin has gone to Pbiladel pnia for a large supply of every thing need ed, to be sent by express to the camp. Between rlarrisburgb and Pittsburgh nu merous trains oi soldiers were met, among them being the Ohio troops. Gov. Denni- son hnd telegraphed for tbe reture of the latter to VV heeling to protect that city from tbe "secessionists, but on learning that tbe Wheeling people were able to defend tbera- seUcs. be countermanded the order. The "Stars and Stripes" wero rua up in Wheel ing. A Secessionist attempted to pull it down, ana was instantly shot. lnetceling in filtsburgu is intense, and me city is wild with excitement. Quarter Master Gen. D. L. Wood, of Ohio, is in New England buying arms for the State. Attorney Gen. Wolcott was met going ill tbe same direction, it is sup posed on similar business. The Union feel ing throughout Pennsylvania runs high and the war spirit is of the fiercest kind. Douglas in Ohio. Hon. Stephen A.
