the news.
Elsewhere in our columns will be found
the details of a draft disturbance in th*s
city, yesterday, which may, from present
appearances, have a fatal result It is the
legitimate fruit of Copperheadism, and di
rectly responsive to the daily doctrines
and teachings of scccsh journals and sym
pathizers here. Only yesterday morning,
the organ of JclL Davis justified the “ in
tense dish7:e otid disgust” of its adherents
towards the enrollment officers, maliciously
prated of the “fooJMi persecution*” visited
upon citizens by these officials, and talked
of “ (lie spirit aroused” &c., among our cit
izens. The very day of the publication of
the infamous item, which was but one of a
series, saw'an echo to the appeal, in a mur
derous assault upon these “ foolish perse
cutors” by the poor tools of the men who
control the Chicago Times. It was a bru
tal, cowardly affair, which will probably
prove a murder in effect, as undoubtedly it
was in design. The purpose was to intim
idate the officers of the Government - Per
haps it may have beenbased upon the hope
of again dragooning some timid souls in
this'eity into telegraphing the President to
revoke the draft proceedings in Chicago,
and save bloodshed and riot It will not
be done. The full power and weight of
the Government will be at the back of its
officers, and those who resist the draft will
do so at Ihdr own deadly peril.
The Ohio Copperhead Committee, con
stituted at their late great pow-wow to
inquire of President Lincoln the present
address of the infamous Yallandigham, arc
now in "Washington on that errand. The
mission is a most touching one. They have
come to ask Hr. Lincoln to give them back
their gubernatorial candidate. Of course
this will not he done, and they do not ex
pect it, but the Ohio force would not be
complete without this mission to "Wash
ington.
The anniversary week at Bloomington
has come to he a period of much interest
to the friends of Education and Science in
our State. Notwithstanding the engross
ing topic.of the war, the exercises of the
occasion, transpiring the present week in
the pretty Normal City, are unusually in
teresting. We devote a due share of space
elsewhere to the notes ot our special re
porter at Bloomington.
At Milwaukee, yesterday. Sunset Cox
and Sat. Clark, and other big and little
lights of the Treason-shriekers, addressed
such of the assembled Copperheads of
"Wisconsin as could be got together. The
sameness of these affairs would be simply
wearisome, were they less dangerous in
temper and tendency. These men mean
the ruin of the Government. Will the
people be warned ?
Doctor Madison Mills, an old-style fossil
of the regular army pattern—called for
short (and “ for cause”) Dr. Mad. Mills—
Surgeon Medical Director in our army at
Vicksburg, is impaled in a column of doc
umentary evidence, elsewhere published in
this paper, as to his inhumanity and pomp
ous savagery. For the sake of our brave
soldiers we trust that medical officials like
this Mad. Mills are scarce; but we fear
they are more common than they should
be. A little brief authority set off with ;
shoulder straps is the cause of a great deal
of suffering in our army. This Dr. Mad.
Mills would rather ten brave fdlows should
die, than that the order for physic for one
of them should not be tied up with Its
quantum of rod tape. Read the evidence
against Mad. Mills.
The Illinois State Legislature has taken
a recess, so the Copperheads say. A very
good name for it Gov. Tates recently
crammed it into the narrowest recess that
ever famished agrave for mingled cupidity
and treason. The unfortunates who at
their own expense hare just gone down to
galvanize a faint wriggle out of the extin
guished reptile, arc content to pronounce
it dead. Their farce of a wake over it,
they could not keep up. Little Fuller likes
the floor, and Buckmaster likes the chair,
but when it is only a little Fuller and
Buckmaster that are present,bothfloor and
chair lose their charms.
THE NEW SITUATION.
New war maps are called for, and this
time, from present aspects, campaigns are
tieing studied in, and the rules of military
Strategy applied to theterritoiy ofhithcrto
peacciul States, peaceful because loyal,
and yet more peaceful than loyal,
when it is Pennsylvania that is
In question. We doubt if the shade of
Penn himself, Quaker as he was, can look
down with satisfaction upon the figure pre
sented by the State that bears Ids name*
for the rebel invasion, now that it has really
come, finds the frightened burghers of the
Key Stone totally unprepared for the event,
and, what is worse, stolidly storing at the
calamity, as if hoping to avoid it
by some other method than fight
ing. Of other States than Pennsyl
vania it may be written to their
shame that the third year of the war finds
their militia forces unorganized, their com
munities unprepared, their very loyalty a
smouldering fire, and their resistance to
the progress of the veteran forces of the
enemy only bushwhacking and cow-boy
fighting. Perhaps it is a ncccssaiypart of
the teachings of this war, that Northern
communities shall see the enemy they
have to deal with, and learn from
dear experience that the only way out
of our present national difficulties Is a path
hewn by the sword in the hands of a great
people tardily roused into a sharp and de
cisive struggle lor self-preservation. The
mission of our armies has been quite"too
much a Foreign mission. If It must become
a Home'mission to enlist our self-interest,
perhaps this is the lesson already began.
It now scorns certain that Lee’s whole
-arm jis in Marrland. It is not best forthe
people to deceive themselves into an idea
that the rebel army is not a largo one, pro
bably by far the largest that ever moved
north of Eichmond. The rebel leaders
have studied this scheme well, and it is a
<jaring one. We do not believe
it contemplates any extended ope
rations in Pennsylvania. It will pro
bably seek to accomplish enough to secure
the desired moral effect abroad. It will be
rmlihely to return from the fat forming re
-gions of Pennsylvania with empty wagon
trains. Harrisburg may be burned, Phila
delphia threatened, and Intermediate
-points pillaged, but the glittering prize will
stHlbe only temporarily left behind and
not for an instant forgotten.
The designs of Leo are against Wash
ington, and Baltimore, the first, as prefato
ry to the latter. This must come of the
movement of this great army, or the end
-irill be largely disproportionate to tno
means employed. The industry of the for
agers, the collection of vast army stores is
incident and necessary to a campaign
in which all communication with his own
supplies have been insolently abandoned.
Insolently because it is the snpremest of
insults to Hooker and hia army that is paid
them by this movement of Lee. He dis
regards all military precautions, passes
into the farthest extreme of military rash
ness, and in doing so declares his contempt
iorhis fire. Our troops will and must assess

dire penalty for that insult or their fame
and name "will tarnish In war annals.
The first cavalry raid into Pennsylvania,
■which created the first scare, was, it seems,
only a feeler. The movement is now be
gun in earnest The rumors come, too,
that the rebels have staked their all on this
venture; that Bragg is at Richmond, with
forces drawn from before Rosccrans, for
the defense of that city; that the South
west is abandoned to its fate, and all the
power of the rebellion centered in the
mighty venture now embarked in. If one
part of this be true, Rosecrans will soon
report upon it, for our dispatches say his
army is in motion, and no sham picket
lines will deceive our army below Mur
freesboro.
Budi are the aspects presented in our
dispatches elsewhere. They are well cal
culated to awaken grave anxiety. The
Government at Washington are prepared
for the emergency. Hooker is not idle.
The next few days must bear great tidings
from the East The earnest work of
the war is at hand, tho gravest
hourof the struggle thus fur, is upon ns.
Let it arouse a fresh spirit of loyalty in
every mart. Let every ertizen be ready to
stand in his own lot for the defense of the
Government. LetLoyaltyhe the more in
tense. We cannot hut believe all will he
well.
THE REASON'S WHY.
Why E. 8. Williams should be dected
to the Circuit Judgeship on Tuesday next.
Because be is a loyal man, an upright citi
zen, an excellent lawyer, unimpeachable
in private or professional matters. Be
cause the crisis demands that care should
be taken to bring everything to the sup
port of the Government. Because luke
warm loyalty on the bench will find
countless ways to harm the cause of the*
Union. Because the Courts must be kept
pure, and our Judges free from all sympa
thy with the'encmies of the country. Be
cause advocates and whlppers in for
the Slave Power have wrought harm
enough in warped decisions, and biased
rulings to guard and protect Slavery.
Because the courts in the interest of slavery
have perverted their own symbols,'and
blindfolded liberty lest sbe should see her
danger, and weighed the flesh of men,
women and little children in the scales
against the gold of the negro drivers. It
is time that loyal men take warning of the
past. The election of E. S. ‘Williams
places a man bn the bench pure above re
proach; earnest of the Right; careful of
Justice; honestly Loyal; openly for Lib
erty; and zealous for Law in its purity.
Why B. F. Ayer should be defeated.
Because the Chicago organ of Jeff. Davis
will then be tellingly rebuked. Because
the Invincible Club of secession sympa
thizers are conspiring to procure his elec
tion. Because every disloyal man in this
district will vole for'him. Because every
man who resists the draft will vote for
Ayer; every man who covertly sustains
the cause' of the South will vote for him.
»Evcry murderous assailant of an'enroll
ment officer; every treason-shrieker; every
deserter whp dare skulk to the polls;
Copperheads of all degrees will cast their
solid vote for Ayer. He will gather to
gether a list of adherents, the which, were
they sent forthwith out of tins district,there
would not be left one disloyal man a voter
in this diy and district If a man is known
• by the company he keeps, wh&t need have
we for a further portraiture of Mr. Ayer ?
Will loyal men attend to this matter and
turn out to the political funeral of B. F.
Ayer, the Times candidate for the Judge
ship on Tuesday next ? The interment
should be deep, the vote cast appropriate
ly monumental. Let there be no hanging
back on Tuesday next Let Mr. Williams
be made successful, by an exemplary ma.
jority and a notable triumph over the Cop
perheads who back Mr. Ayer.

Mcrriman, and Maj. W. Packard, who were
unanimously elected members of the Society.
O. S. Hanson, Secretary of the Board, read
his annual report, which gives a synopsis of
the financial transactions of the Society. The
report suggests the propriety ol a revision of
the constitution, that the duties of the seve
ral officers may be more fully set fortlu A
communication was read, from Dr. Yasey,
asking to withdraw the first of the two col
lections of Illinois flora he has presented the
Society, for the purpose of presenting the
first'to the Wesleyan University. The report
was accepted, and Ids request unanimously
complied with.
On motion, the regular annual election was
held, which resulted as follows:

McHenry county. :
Vice rreHdents —J. W, Yellc, B, G. Boots, and

Pending the election of Corresponding Sec
retary, an animated debate ensued, In which
thefiicnds of rival candidates were opposed
to the election of Prof. Wilber. Numerous
(treet rumors as to his course towards the So
ciety having been made, Mr. Wilber read a
statement, showing his connection with the
Society from its very incipleucy, and showing
:t dean record of his labors, and that he has
placed, or caused to be placed iu tho Museum,
all the specimens, except the birds. His
statement showed that he had never received
a dollar from the Society as salary, but hid
paid out from his own private funds, and rais
ed (principally by lectures) nearly $1,500 an
nually, although the salary allowed by the
constitution and by-law is nearly $1,500 per

•The cavalry command of CoL Saunders,
which has just achieved the splendid and sue*’

up of detachments of picked men from' all
the mounted regiments in Gen. Garter’s divis

success and safety.

representing themselves os Morgan’s men,

[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Wasbikcton, Jane Si, 1563.
A trustworthy correspondent who has been
smorg the rebels in Maryland, and has made
his way back to Frederick, sends the follow*
Irg to your Washington office:
Feedeeick, Md., Jane 24—11 r. ji.
More than one-third of Lee’s whole army is
already on the road, and marching In three
columns into Pennsylvania. Union men who
arrived here this evening from Smithsbnig,
four miles from the Pennsylvania line, relate
Thai at 9 o’clock this morning Early’s divis
ion of Ewell’s corps, entered • that place by
the Carlton road.
After remaining In Smlthsburg for an
hour or two, they took up thcirlinc of march
toward Mcchanicsvillc, from which place
they would probably take the road leading to
Gettysburg. This force numbered about
8,000 men, and was composed of infantry,
cavalry and artillery, In fall preparation.
Fourteen regiments of infantry, two regi
ments of cavalry, and sixteen pieces of ar
tillery.
They were followed by a train nunftering
eighty wagons, most of which were empty.
Another force, numbering between ten and
twelve thousand men, left Hagerstown yester
day morning, taking the Grccncastle road.
Gen. Ewell was in Hagerstown this morn
ing. He is unable to walk without the aid of
crutches.
Persons who left there this morning say they
counted sixty-six pieces of artillerv as the
rebels marched ont of town. Their wagons
and teams numbered several hundred. Rebel
officers at Hagerstown informed citizens there
that another force under command of A F.
Hill had crossed the Potomac at Hancock and
was advancing on Hercenbmg.
The rebels crossed the river on Monday,
and on Tuesday night at three points, Wil
liamsport, Shcpardstown and Hancock. Their
forces aie estimated at 35,000 men, and com
pilacfl inCmtiy, cavalry and artillery. - Not
withstanding Gen. Ewell has issued orders,
commanding his troops, under penalty of
death, to restrain from interfering with the
property of Marylanders, foraging parties are
scorning the‘country in every direction, and
seizing all the horses and ca'.tle they can lay
their hands upon.
Several thousand head of c&ttle have been
gobbled by the rebels in Washington county,
and a great many have been driven across the
river at Williamsport, to feed that portion of
Lee’s army which remains on the other side.
The rebel commanders have promised their
soldiers that the moment they touch Pcnnsyl-.
vania soil all restraint upon them shall he re
moved, and they shall have unbridled license
to plunder and devastate the country they
passthrough.' ”
The late movement of their cavalry into
Ptnns3lvania, the rebels say, was intended
merely as a feeler, hut that this time Penn
sylvania shall be taught the horrors of war In
good earnest. The rebels have a poor opin
ion of the troops assembled at Harrisburg,
characterizing them as unorganized, undisci
plined men, who will oppose no serioar bar
rier to their successful march through Pena-
•ylvanla.
They boast that they will he la Harrisburg
by Sunday evening, whence they will march
on Philadelphia.
LATEST.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Frederick, Md., Jane2s—ll a. m.
Refugees just in from Hagerstown, report
that late yesterday afternoon, another force of
rebels, 10,000 strong, entered that place. They
crossed at Williamsport, on Tuesday nigh’.
The impression in Hagerstown, is that Lee’s
whole army Is crossing Into Maryland.
The force advancing on Mercersharg is
‘commanded by Bradley.
T. C. Johnson, a renegade Marylander, and
a most prominent citizen hero, hod left tho
place, and others are leaving.
The rebels crossed the Potomac at four
points—Hancock, Williamsport, Shepards
town, and Antietam Ford.
Baltimore, June 25.—Information received
here this morning from Maryland, is to the
following purport:
Geo. Lee is said to have passed through
Winchester on Friday. The entire rebel
army was then in motion, claiming to be 100,-
000 strong.
Ewell was at Hagerstown on Monday, and
on Tuesday marched for Pennsylvania.
• Longstre'et’e troops were about crossing
the Potomac, and were to be on this side on
Wednesday,
The rebel programme, according to a highly
intelligent sympathizer, just from Western
Maryland, is, that Hill’s forces were to occu
py Gen. Hooker’s attention until the main
body of the rebel army were well on the way.
The rebel army wonld then more rapidly
North, having in the meanwhile supplied
themselves with fresh horses from. Maryland
and Pennsylvania. The rebels expected to
capture Harrisburg almost withont opposi
tion and move at once on Philadelphia. All
the rebel officers hare been newly uniformed
and equipped, and their advance forces made
.to present a very lino appearance. Ewell
told his men to pay liberally for every thing,
and that although the people might turn up
their noses at rebel money now, they would
soon he glad to get it. These representations
are sent for what they may he worth. How
ever extravagant and eensation-liko they may
appear, they are truthful representations of
the hopes and expectations ot intelligent and
thinking rebels.
WasmsoTOK, June 25.—The Republican, in
an extra to day, says: A gentleman arrived
here this morning who left Hagerstown at 6
o’clock yesterday, Wednesday, a. m. He saw
Ewell’s forces, composing the left wing of
Lee’s army, pass there at that place. The
bead column entered Hagerstown on Tues
day morning, and moved directly through to
Pennsylvania. The rear of the column, un
derstood to belong to Ewell, did not
pass through the . place until * that
night. This force was estimated to be
from 20,000 to 25,000 strong. The troops did
very little damage besides seizing all the
horses they could find. Our informant says,
when ho left Hagerstown, yesterday forenoon,.
THE EASTERN SEAT ©S? WAR.
w
it ;was understood that Longstreet, in com*
mand of the right wing of Lee’s army, was
then crossing the Potomac, below Williams
port. The main body of A. P. Hill’s forces,
comprising the center of Lee’s army, was
understood, yesterday, to he somewhere bo*
tween Winchester and Martlnslmrg, moving
towards the river. To-day, we have no
dcuht, from all the information we have
gathered, that the whole of Ewell’s column is
in Pennsylvania, not far from Chambersburg.
The gentleman who saw Ewell’s troops,
says they had with them a very large number
of empty wagons. It is evident from this
fact that they intend to gather all the sup*
plies they can find.
Me Illvaine’s Hotel, 14 miles West op
McConnellsburo, Jane 25,-—The rebels la
force, entered McConncllsburg lost night at
8 o’clock. The telegraph operator after a six
hcnrejonrccy through the mountains reach
ed this place and established on office. The
rebel advance was met by the 12th Pennsyl
vania cavalry, and a brisk skirmish ensued.
The l£lh was finally, compelled to Tetreat be
fore the superior numbers of'tho enemy with
a loss of three wounded.
A regiment of militia under Col. Sink fell
back at the rdvarco of the enemy, but an in
dependent company under Capt. Wallace took
its position In the mountains, bushwhacking
the rebels with great success. Numbers of
rebels are known to have been killed, but the
extent of their loss is unknown.
Harjusbcko, June 25, 2 SO p. m.—Daring
the whole of last night and, and up to the
present time, long trains of wagons laden
with goods and household furniture, have en
tered the city. The fanners are flocking in
with their horses, and also any number of
contrabands of all ages and sex.
There arc about Coo'contrabands between
here and Carlisle, on tho way. Many of our
citizens are packing up their goods ready for
shipment. The matter of declaring martial
lawj| under consideration, to prevent the
able-bodied men from leaving the city.
The rebel column is slowly advancing on
Carlisle.
Fhit-Lpeutoa, Juno 25.—The Pennsylvania
Railroad Company has received a dispatch
dated Carlisle 11 o’clock this morning* •which
says the rebels commenced moving at 10
o’clock this morning, and their advance was
then eight miles ofi*.
Business is partially suspended in this city
(Philadelphia) to-day. Receipts and ship
ments of goods by the Pennsylvania Central
Railroad are temporarily suspended.
The rebels have ten regiments, with artil
lery and cavalry, on Sonth Mountain, beyond
Gettytbuig.
Baltimore, June 25.—Later reliable ac
counts last night from Frederick are that
there are no rebels near there. The forceinthe
Talley beyond Sonth Mountain has made no
movement in this direction. There ore no
rebels cast of Boonesboro, which is fourmilcs
west of Sonth Mountain. Information at
headquarters goes to confirm theJpr<.vlou3 ac
counts of a heavy rebel force being In iho val
ley west of Booncsboro. They were moving
northward, but it was not ascertained
whether they were taking the Chamhcratmrg.
road, or the road leading to Gettysburg. The
artillery accompanying this body of rebels Is
bald to number sixty-six pieces. .
Philadelphia, June 25—The Baltimore
Amtrican, of yesterday, says: There is no
longer any doubt that Lee purposes a re
newal of the attempt to capture Washing
ton by the Maryland route.' His absence in
the Cumberland Valley is for forage and sup
plies. It Is believed that he has uo purpose
of penetrating to Harrisburg. Jt is also be
lieved that Hooker will to day have a largo
force in Frederick county, Maryland, between
the enemy and Baltimore and Washington.
The garrison at Maryland Heights forms the
right wing of Hooker’s army, and is under
hia command.
The Philadelphia Inquirer has the following
specials;
McConuellsbnrg was occupied by rebel cav
alry this evening.
Lee and Longetrcet were both at Winches
ter on Friday, with 10,000 men. , They Intend
ed to cross thsf Potomac in two days.
Rhodes’ rebel division of 10,000, left Hag
erstown on Tuesday forChamhcrshurg. John
ston’s rebel division, 12,000, and thirteen
pieces cf artillery, crossed at Shcpardstown,
on Sunday. TTnif of tho force left Boonesboro
bn Tuesday for the North: the other half went
to Williamsport. The acqueduct there has
been destroy ed by the rebels, also a number of
bridges.
It is generally believed that the greater part
of Lee’s army crossed into Maryland* since
Friday, at Antietam, Shepardstown and Wil
liamsport.
Hakuisbubg, June 24—Midnight—The
rebels are within twenty-five miles of Harris
burg. The enemy’s column halted about
eight miles the otherside of Carlisle and went
into camp. The authorities are in telegraphic
communication with Garrison’s Station, two
miles from the rebel pickets. Their line to
night Is very strong, Tho result of to-mor
row is looked forward to with much anxiety.
A battle will undoubtedly bo fought or the
place evacuated before to-morrow night.
Everything is quiet In the neighborhood of
Gettysburg and Hanover Junction.
The rebel operatorat 10 o’clock to-night at
tached wires at McConnellsbvrg and opened
communication with Pittsburg. He told a
long story about Jenkins, and what he in
tended doing. No reliance is placed on it.
New Tore, June 25. —A Harrisburg dis
patch to the New York Herald., states that
great alarm prevails there. The opinion *.of
Gens. Franklin and Couch is, that the rebels
are now advancing with serious intention on
Harrisburg. Every preparation has been
made to receive them.
The politicians ore leaving.
Judge Whitmore, whose arm was occupied
at Grccncastle, [counted eighteen pieces of
artillery, and estimated the column at thirty
thousand.
A dispatch dated Gleason's Station, fivo
miles from Carlisle, states:
Our forces evacuated Shippenshnrg at 10
o'clock, the enemy charging Into town and
firing some volleys. No one was hurt The
rebels say they will ho in Carlisle on Thurs
day. lire enemy halted at Falmstown. Oar
cavalry is in front, about a mile from the
rebels. The rebel cavalry went into Fayette
ville last evening. The rebels take all the
hats, watches and money from persons, and
plunder private property.
Rebel pickets are reported at Leesburg yes
terday.
New York, Juno 25.—A Washington spe
cial to the JTerdtd says:
Heavy and rapid artillery and musketry
firing, apparently in the vicinity of Gaines
ville or Manassas, was heard this afternoon on
the road from Fairfax Court; House to this
city, for about two hours. The artillery firing
was distinctly heard at Aqueduct Bridge, in
Georgetown.
The Z&rofcTs Baltimore correspondent
CHICAGO, Fill DAY, JUNE 26, 1863.
;fe*r
states: A co-operating corps of Lee, left be
hind at FrecerlckPbu r ir, is to cross the lower
Potomac at Bndd’s Ferry, same twenty-five
miles below Washington, and it has a com
plete set of pontoons ready for the purpose.
• Ihc New York 2Vma* Washington special
says:
Information received to-day renders it
nearly positive that the whole of Ewell’s
corps has been transferred Into Maryland.
This corps numbers about 23,000. Stuart’s

Bcfugccs who arrived here this evening, from
near the Pennsylvania line, state that this
morning, at nine o’clock, Early’s division, of
Ewell’s corps, passed through Smithsburg,
on its way to Chambersburg. They had with
them sixteen pieces of artillery, two regi
ments of cavalry and eleven of infantry—in
all about 8,000 men. Gen. Rhodes’ division
took the Greencastle road from Hagerstown,
and a third division of the enemy is reported
advancing upon Mercersburg from the direc
tion of Hancock. Ewell commands iu per

rebel army is accompanied by an immense
wagon train, which would indicate a move

anything else.

SURMISES AS TO THE
REBEL SCHEME.
Up
A private letter received from our corres
pondent at Murfreesboro, this evening, dated
Tuesday evening, states that Rbsccrans’ army
had been served with ten days 1 rations, and
they were all in motion. The destination is
contraband: hut it maybe Inferred,from the
fact that Bragg, with a large portion of his
ai my, Is reported to have reached Richmond
on the 19th. Tho impression in military
quarters here, Is that the rebel leaders have
given np # the idea of being able to hold Vicks
burg, and have determined to give up the
Southwest. Bragg is to take care ofßlch
njond, while Lee’s army comes north and
threatens Philadelphia, Baltimore and ■Wash
ington,
From the present aspect of affairs at the
cast, this theory looks plausible.
The military situation is about this;: Gen.
Hooker’s army Is tolerably well in band
stretching in front of Washington, withdut
lyirg cavalry beyond the Bull Run mountains,
and the gaps that enter the Shenandoah Vol
ley. The whereabouts of Gen. Lee’sarmyaro
variously stated. Gen. Hooker is understood
to believe now that the bulk of the rebelarmy.
Is In lie Shenandoah Valley, while the people
of Baltimore are under the impression that it
is already menacingtheir city and are accumu
lating for defence, while others believe It to
be massing for an attack on the Maryland
side; still others Insist that it is moving west
ward with all possible rapidity towards Pitts
burg, or upon the Kanawha Volley to Mari
etta, Ohio.
Military operations are covered by such a
cloud of feints, and demonstrations in the
valley, over in Maryland, in Southern Penn
sylvania, that there Is great difficulty in form
ing an accurate opinion os to location, or
intentions.
It is altogether certain that now no enemy
is in the Bull Run Valley, or anywhere cast of
theßluo Ridge in Virginia, except' several
detachments of cavalry.
The counties ol Columbiana, Jefferson and
Belmont comprise the part of Ohio included
in Gen. Brooks’ department. Jolmstownand
the Laurel Range arc the dividing lino in
Pennsylvania between Brooks and Couch. -
Four citizens charged with assaulting col
ored soldiers are ordered to appear before a
military commission convened for that pur
pose.
TUB BEREAVED VALLAXDIGHAStERS.
The Committee representing the Ohio Yal
landlgham Convention, had a brief interview
with the President, to-day, and are to have a
formal one to-morrow. The President said
little or nothing to them, but listened to their
remarks on judiciousness and the nnconstitu
tionallty of Yollaudigham’s arrest, and re
quested them to put their views la writing,
and to present him the with resolutions passed
by the Convention, which they seemed to
presume he had read in advance.
No doubt is entertained hero that some
rebel force has entered Pennsylvania, but it
is believed that accounts from that State are
immensely exaggerated.

invasion says: So furas Gen. Hooker’s posi
tion is concerned it is sufficient to saythat he
is neither ignorant ol the whereabouts of
the enemy nor Inactive himself.

The following is an abstractor the resolu
tions of the Copperhead Convention to day:
Tfce first solution maintains the pre-emi-
nence of the Constitution, and denies the
right of any Stafe’to secede, and for the main
tenance of the Union under tho Constitution.
The second alleges that a war under the
Constitution merits tho blessing of the
immortal God of battles, while a contest
for the subversion of rights is as unholy as
anything tyranny can inflict.
The third denounces the Southern rebellion
as the act of Southern politicians and North
ern fanatics; and holds the act as unjustifiable
in any sense;
The fourthcondemus the war policies of the
Administration, as leaving the world in doubt
wbelherthelrprincipal object is to restore
the Constitution at the South, or subvert it at
the North. ‘ , ,
The fifth resolution repudiates support to a
war waged against the Constitution.
The sixth mantains that liberty and right
ontofthe Union, arc better than a govern
ment above the Constitution and the laws.
The seventh deprecates the exercise of mar
tial law outside of the limits of military occu
pation, and denounces arbitrary arrests.
The eighth and 9th condemn certain acts of
aggression upon public.rights,and insist upon
the strict'adminiatration of law as It exists on

Xlio United States Sanitary
Commission.
The New York World of the 3-lth has an
elaborate and interesting sketch of the opera
tions of the United States Sanitary Commis
sion, exhibiting powerfully the nature and
range of its benevolent operations, its value
in augmenting the efficiency and bettering
the physical condition of our soldiers. That
it has disbursed nearly the value of the large
sum cl five million dollars in supplies,
medicines, supplies, clothing, &c., since its
organization, is a fact which discloses the
vast field of its operations. We venture to
say that no such sum of money was ever ex
pended more wisely or economically.
The arrangements of the Commission have
now become so perfect and systematic that,
as far as it has the means, the end is reached
perfectly and competently. Its medical in
spectors, who are scientific experts, accom
pany every column of the army, and by ad
vice, direction, and if necessary by complaint
regblute the sanitary condition of the men to*
the best degree possible.
Supplies are sent by the Commission with
every expedition, entirely supplementary to
those of the departments at Washington, and
derived from the donations of the pablic.
Wherever the sick or woanded soldier is
there will bo found a trustworthy agent of
the Sanitary Commission ready to supply him
with medical treatment, food, clothing or
transportation, as the case may require.
On the battle field they hover round, fear
less of danger to themselves, only seeking to
alleviate pain in others. Thousands of sol
diers, sick, wounded,
weekly receive its shelter and its food, its safe
conduct. Us transportation facilities, Us aid
in securing their pay and pensions. Every
niilitaiy hospital In the'conntry is subject to
the visitations of its medical agents, and
every defect and shortcoming is reported to
the Surgeon General and at once remedied as
far as possible.
By means of a registration plan, every sick
or wounded soldierknown to any department
of the Government, may be traced directly to
hie present locality on application to the San
itary Commission.
-while it has collected more money and sup
plies than any' other benevolent association
known, it has distributed its means with a
liberality and at the same time a care equally
remarkable.
Meanwhile It has always worked side by
side with .the United States Government.
Never finding themselves antagonistic to each
other,' they have been enabled to give mutual
assistance—the one by Its power, tho other
by.ita knowledge.
The usefulness of the Sanitary Commission
to the Government can be best seen in its In
fluence on the Medical Department of the
Government This department, which at the
outbreak of the war was weak and incompe
tent to the occasion, although, of course,
from no fault of its own, is now being well
-regulated and admirably organized. With a
corps of 3,000 responsible surgeons, and
15,000 hired nnr»es, experienced in their du
ties, this department is constantly improving
in usefulness, and is now respected and trusted
by nil, and chiefly through the advice and aid
of tbe Sanitary Commission.
One sphere of usefulness peculiar to the
Sanitary Commission, has been the publish
ing and circulation among tho snrgeoca In the
army of monograms upon medical subjects
of the greatest interest in connection with
their field of operations. These monograms
are prepared by most competent men, with
special reference to the condition of oararmy,
and forms a little circulating library of just
such material as is most required. Among
these publications are a “Report of a Commit
tee on the use of Quinine as a prophylatie
against Malarious Diseases:” “Directions
to Army Surgeons on the Field of Battle,”
“Report of a Committee on tho value of
Yaccination la Armies;” “ Report of a Com
mittee on the subject of Amputation;” “Re
port ofa Committee on the subject of Vene
real Diseases“ Report of a Committee on
tte subject of Pneumonia;” “Report ofa
Committee on the subject of Continued Fe
vers;” “Report of a Committee on Dysen
tery“ Report ol a Committee on the sub
ject of Scurvy;” with others on the treatment
of “Fractures,” “ Miasmatic Fevers,” “Yel
low Fever,” &c., £c. Then there are “In
structions for Camp Inspectors,” “Rulesfor
Preserving the Health of the Soldier,” and
others more practical in their nature, and In
teresting to any one interested in the army.
lIIEWABIiVTUE CAUCASUS
Progress of tho Patriots—military
Losses and Expenses of tUe Russian*.
[SouknmKalo (May 241 correspondence of Gallg
nanfs- Messenger.]
'fhe strife between the Russians aud Circas
sians continues, and with the balance of suc
cess decidedly in favor of the latter.. The list
engagement which took place was ‘at Anl
bosb, where a column of 5,000 Russians re
turned to the newly constructed fort on the
river Psach, by the line .of the Chagwacha,
after being relieved by some fresh troops,
were vigorously attacked by the moonam
cers. The light Listed four hours and a half,
the Russians losing 500 killed and wounded.
Another division of imperial troops ad
vanced on the Zitzi, where they were about
to construct a tort, and commence cutting a
passage through the forestof BikanaL They,
the Russians, to the number of 4,500, were
there attacked by the mountaineers and
obliged to retire with a loss of 150 men, be
sides a-number of wounded, the Circassians,
under Mehemet All, only losing about a fourth
of that number. Notwithstanding the losses
the Russians thus suffer from the repeated at
tacks they are forced to accept, they can hard
ly be said to have lost ground In their hold on
the established posts. Gen. Endokimoff, iu
order to obtain a decided advantage over the
Circassians, appears quite indifferent as to
what sacrifice oflifchemuatincur; he hopes,
having begun with the capture of Schamyl-
Gunib, to conclude by bringing tbe whole
population into subjection, and thus to free
bis troops from the heavy drain entalledupou
them by tills war. The plan he intends pur
suing appears to be to drive the Circassians
Into the Übuh mountains, where he can with
more facility blockade them by land and sea.
The policy wbicb Russia has followed in
Echetchenla since the capture of Schamyl has
kept that district tranquil; there is no at
tempt at conscription, and the civil adminis
tration has been confided to those natives who
have been gained over by decorations or
something of a yet. more tangible potency.
The expenses of Russia In this way are, how
ever,enormous, and the incomings nil; bat
the great aim of an eventful movement on
Turkish Armenia, and by, the Oros on India,
will of coarse cause her to maintain, if possi
ble, her position at any cost.
The mountaineers are preparing to scud
another deputation to Constantinople on the
hopeless mission of trying to induce the Porte
and the representatives of the Powers to In
tercede with Russia, so as to pat an end to
the bloody strife now desolating their
country.
A National Rifle Corps.
[From the N. Y. Word, Jane 24.]
A movement Is on foot‘ to organize rifle
corps throughout the loyal States, upon a
plan similar to that in vogue in England and
Switzerland, with a view of creating a force
that shall be available for any emergency.
The men are to be supplied with the Spring
field or Enfield rifle, which are the recognized
arm of the infantry portion of the United
States service. It Is proposed to organize
this force into independent companies, to he
armed and equipped by the several States to
which they belong, and to bo unde? the im
mediate control of the said States. In order
to procure proper persons for this force, ap
plications will be made to the different State
Legislatures to offer prizes every year, to bo
competed for by the companies as often os
once a year. Congress will also be asked to
offer prizes to be competed for every three
years. - Of course, the details of the organi
zation will bo developed by time, but theiact
that such & force Is to be raised and put under
State control is worthy of special notice, iu
view of the importance of an efficient Stvc
jniUUSi as shown by recent occurrences, ,

A Confederate Spy Making
Union Speeches.
[From the New York Evening Post.]
A young man from, this cily, travelling on
business a few weeks ago in Ohio, at*
tended a large Union mass meeting
held in one of the largo cities of that
8 ate, and among the speakers recognized,
; in one of the most emphatic of them all, an
Englishman who had formerly been his teach
er in one of the ward schools up-town. At
the close of the speech the young man ap
proached his former friend, calling him by
hla old name. The name was disclaimed by
• the Union orator, and all acquaintance with
the yonng man denied. But the New Yorker
could not be shaken off thus easily, and
pressed his Inquiries until he succeeded la
making himself feared, it not recognized, by
the Union speaker. The latter finally winked
to him to go with him from the ground, and
asked him if he could keep a secret.
Upon bis answering alHrmatively, the ora
tor took the young man to his room at the
hotel, again extorted his secrecy upon honor,
and, first taking oat a pistol to guard against
surprise, as well as to frighten his visitor, ac
knowledged himself to be a confederate spy
in disguise, showed his uniform, and also a
commission as a recrnlring officer in the rebel
service. His pressing business at the time of
meeting his former pupil was to carry dis
patches to Canada and England, which mis
sion be has probably by this time safely sue
succeeded in accomplishing. Why he was
not denounced by the person ho took into his
conlidence we are not informed.
The Crops.
Indiana. —The wheat in Wayne county is
* last ripening. It is free from rust or blight of
any description, and the yield promises to be
excellent. The fruit crop will be only fair.
Apples, pears and cherries promise well, but
peaches are a failure. The wheat crop of
Shelby county will not be more than half an
average of that of other seasons. The wheat
crop in Ucnricks county promises to bo fir
• beyond the average, unlcssrust sets la. C>»m
looks well, and the prospect for a fall supply
of fruit Is .promising. In Union Township,
Fulton county, the crops for the most part
look well, particularly the wheat. • -Corn is
backward, but the favorable weather of the
past few days has caused it come rapidly for
ward, and we anticipate a good crop. We
noticed some flax on a number of firms.
There Is also a fvir amount of fruit on the
trees, though it was injured by the late hail
storm and by frost in some places. In La
'porte county the wheat crop, on sandy land,
fas been materially damaged by tho fly.
Wheat on the prairies has suffered little, if
any. The grain crop will bo light on account
of the drouth.
Illinois.— We learn that the fine promises
for good crop* aro likely ta be Jtfastod by the
present lack of min. From all parte
tho country wo hear sad complaints of the
drouth, and unless we are soon favored with
an opening of the flood-gates, all the crops
will no doubt be seriously damaged. In the
northern parts of the State and la Wisconsin,
we notice by onr exchanges, rain fell on Sun
day, to the great joy of the farmers. Miy we
