SATURDAY, JUNE 27,1863.
THE NEWS.
The news from Vicksburg is not of
marked interest, and adds little to the in
telligence previously received. It a snf-.
ficiently indicative, however, of an ap
proaching crisis not now long to be defer
red.
Bosccrans’ Army of the Cumberland a
in motion. We accompany the brief dis
patch elsewhere, authoritatively announc
ing the fact, with a compilation of highly
interesting facts, relative to the make up
.snd morale of tins splendid army.
Ohio a preparing promptly to meet and
teat back the threatened invasion of her
Boil. The Southern cousins of Vailandig
3mm will have a hot time of it, if they do
mot hasten and .finish np their promised
Visit before Ohio gets fully roused.
A Fortress Monroe dispatch brings in
telligence of the recent loss of the United
States gunboat Sumter by a collision at
Bca, off Cape Demy. The Sumter was a
fourth rate screw steamer of about GOO tons.
She carried five guns and was recently put
in commission, after extensive repairs at
the Brooklyn Navy Yard-
One of our city mediums declare that
Stonewall Jackson has, since his death,
been converted into a staunch Anti-Slave
j-y man by the late Rev. Dr.Lymanßeech
cr. This is rather too late a transforma
tion to he of service, and yet we would not
object to the immediate conversion of Lee
and other rebel leaders, in the same way.
In unother.part of this issue we give
the recently published call for a Loyal
State Convention at Nashville, to take
measures for the formal restoration of Ten
nessee to the Union.
The rebel pirates are still busy' with the
fishermen on the'Kew England coast, and
fresh acts of outrage and wanton destruc
tion ore reported. Theskippcrs and crews
who see their property and shares thus sac
rificed, will treasure up wrath against the
day of vengeance on the traitors, whose
time of punishment will sorely come.
Emancipation in Missouri stands post
poned for the present, by a rote of her
State Convention. The leaven is working,
snd the pro-Sl&very men who resist the ad
vance in public sentiment in that State, will
yield to the course of inevitable events,
and on less favorable terms for them wives,
What they refuse to the dictates of Beason
and Humanity. Missouri is sure to be a
Tree State. It is her destiny.
True to their instincts, the cowardly and
treacherous Northern tools oi the Slave
power have no more sympathy for the
downtrodden white victims of the accursed
system of Homan Ohattelism, than they
have for the oppressed blacks themselves.
The men in Illinois who advocate the in
famous Black Laws, are, when brought to
a test, in favor of a "White law ol the same
bearing, and stringency, if we are to judge
from the hard-hearted conduct of the peo
ple and municipal officers of Centralis, as
£ct down on .the second page of to-day’s
paper. Well may Illinoisans blush at the
Spectacle. The well-fed and prosperous
jicople of a peaceful loyal State barring
their doors against helpless women
tmd children, fugitives of their own
Color, fleeing stripped and penniless from
the red track of war. Bet that the inno
cent must suffer with the guilty, it would
be & deserved retributive jusdee, were a
force of rebels to pour through Centralis,
mid make that neighborhood a wilderness,
that these selfish Copperheads might see in
Its full enormity, their cruel and unfeeling
conduct toward the hapless exiles they
would spurn from their midst Such is
Copperhe&dism. In peace, cringing and
obedient to the Slave Power. Li war cow
ardly and full pf unmanly terror. Hard
hearted to the suffering, callous to all but
attacks upon their pockets. Such beings
cannot be said to live, they merely exist, a
kind of human oyster. We do not believe
however, that the Mayor of Centralis
Speaks by authority for any large class of
his townsmen.
The enrollment officers of this city, if
culled on, could famish the precise locali
ties where B. F. Ayer will find his firmest
adherers on Tuesday next Wherever
jnen hate the war; and resist the draft;
and threaten vengeance on the officers of
the Government; and shelter deserters;
and puss their time in earring the North
and lauding the South, in just those locali
ties Mr. Ayer will he the favored candi
date for the Circuit Judgeship. If a man
Daay he known hy the company he keeps,
the positions of Mr. Ayer are snch, that
loyal men can find no justification in sup
porting him.
IHEWABIN THE EAST.
For one stereotyped phase in our
Washington dispatches we were never, of
yore, very gratelul and have stall less
reason to be so at the present time. Let
310 pexmer of dispatches, general or special,
from the capital, waste dectric force by
trapspiisrion to tbe public of the stale and
Donsensc that the Government is entirely
satisfied with the situation. The
people are not whining children
to be dduded with the pretence that pull
ing teeth docs not hurt, and that the offices
of the surgeon are no cause ol pain. There
5s in the present situation most abundant
cause for anxiety in both rulers and peo
ple. The rebels are carrying out their
Jhroat of transferring the theatre of war
northward. They are now within
Ihe borders of Pennsylvania in heavy
force. The dispatches no longer
Beck to conceal the situation. There is
-anxiety at Washington, not a cowardly
fear, but a solidtude, the finest attribute of
Tnnnlinres, when it is the parent of great
deeds.
We Btfll believe that ’Washington is the
point really Uireatcncd by Lee, and the
activity with which he is collecting stores
and forage is indicative of the size
of his army and the persistent intent
of his errand. He is getting to
gether material to subsist a great army
lor a great undertaking. It is the great
crisis of the wax precipitated suddenly
upon ns. If it rouse the whole people to
earnest, immediate, and devoted action, it
can have but one result, and that for the
Union, and the utter discomfiture and rout
of the rebels.
TAILASDIGHOL
The case is fairly laid before the Presi
dent, He is asked to restore to the Ohio
Copperheads, a traitor, the avowed and
earnest enemy of this Government, who
never bus known a heart-beat of loyalty
since the outbreak of the rebellion; who
in bis public speeches has persistently de
nounced the attempt to subdue the South ;
who openly advocates the leading out of
the broad States of the West from the old
Union, to a new and debased association
with Slave Drivers' Confederacy.
The President's far-seeing eye" discerned
before the war broke out, the coining
of a mighty struggle upon the issue wheth
er these States should be U AU Free or aU
jSlate” He is now asked to release the
Barabbas of Oopperheadism, to canyon
in the North his mission of making them
“all slave.” We regard the task laid upon
the President by the errand of the recreant
Ohioans,one of themostcritical and Import
ant of the war. It touches the whole ques-
VOLUME XVI.
tion of ■whether the Federal Government
has a power to reach and punish its ene
mies, and whether it may mate promptly
dangerous to its advocates all utterance
and printed dissemination of Treason.
No one doubts the present or past inten
tions of Yallandigham. No sane man be
lieves him to he other than what he is, the
enemy of this Government Will it make
any difference in his case, because his
teachings have poisoned the Cop
perhead Democracy of Ohio until
they demand him as a leader?
The very feet is proof itself of the
unwise forbearance of the Government In
allowing the rabid traitors, and the rabid
journals of this stamp so ample a range
and opportunity among the people.
There can be scarcely a doubt what Mr.
Lincoln will do. We trust he has no
weak-kneed friends who will telegraph
him from Ohio, and counsel altering in
this important crisis.
TO UNION VOTEUS.
There should be unity and harmony of
purpose among the Union voters of this
Judicial district in the brief campaign
which must and should result in the elec
tion of E. S. Williams, Esq., to fill the va
cancy caused by the decease of the late
Judge Manicrre. The issue is so well
stated in -the circular of the Union Com
mittee, that we cannot do better than to
borrow their language:
The Republican Union candidate (E. S.
Williams) is a man of lino legal attainments,
high moral character, great personal integrity,
and, if elected, will make an upright Judge—a
worthy successor of the lamented Judge Manlcrre.
He ie a citizen of twenty years standing, the form
er law partner of the late Hon. Justin Butterfield
and the late James H. Collins, Esq.; has enjoyed
• large practice; is second tone member of the
bar in his knowledge of the practice in our Courts.
Be will bo the right man in the right place.
The Copperheads hope to catch the Union men
asleep and steal a march on them, aud elect their
disunion peace candidate. There is a large ma
jority oi unconditional Union men in the counties
of Coofcand Lake? bnt if they supinely absent
themselves from the polls, their more vigilant op
ponents will centre the Judgeship. Let us prove,
next Tuesday, the SOih instant, that Union men
arc not asleep. Remember that “Eternal vigi
lance ie the price of Liberty.” Be sure and vote,
andbringyonr neighbors to the polls with you.

[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune ]
Fuedeiuc, Md., June 25—Sp. ra,
I have just returned from the vicinity of tho
South Mountain battle-field, thirteen miles
distant from here. From persons who left
Booneboro this afternoon, I learn that the
rebels have all left that place.
Anderson's division of Longstrcet’s corps,
which arrived there on Wednesday night and
encamped, left yesterday morning, taking the
Waynesboro road toward Chambcrfiburg. His
force Is estimated at from 7,000 to 10,000 in
fantry, cavalry and artillery, accompanied by
large wagon trains.
The whole of Longstrect’fl corps had cross
ed the Potomac, and is advancing In the same
direction into Pennsylvania.
But few rebel troops were yesterday at
Hagerstown, ill having gone to Pennsylvania.
Lee and staff arc certainly on this side of
the Potomac. ...
[Special Dispatch lo the Chicago Tribune.]
Phujoielthia, June 26. 1663.
From information received here, I- learn
that the rebels are now within thirty miles of
Harrisburg. There is not much alarm among
the residents, as that city cannot be taken, al
though great damage can be done in the val
ley. There are no rebels on tho Upper Poto
mac this ride of Harperis Ferry, and every
thing in that vicinity is reported to be going
on satisfactorily.
HjumiSßVßo, June 20—9 p. m.
Gov. Curtin has received information that
the rebels occupied Gettysburg to day with
ten regiments of infantry, and with cavalry
and artillery.
The operator at Gettysburg, while sending
the dispatch to Gen. Couch, was forced to
leave before finishing it to avoid capture.
It is believed that this force intends to
strike the Northern Central Railroad, either
at Hanover Junction or York, thirty miles
distant.
The Governor has also received information
that the rebels bold all the passes of South
Mountain.
Hirbisbcbg, J one 26,— The Governor will,
by Jhe authority of the War Department, is
sue a proclamation which will be published
to-morrow, calling for 50,000 militia for the
defence of the State, to serve for three
months.
The appointments for the different counties
will also be indicated. Gen. W. F. Smith has
been assigned to the defenses of the Basque
bnnnnb,
CoL Pierce has been assigned to the com
mand of the troops at Bloody Hun, Gen Mil
roy having been relieved.
The Gray Reserves of Philadelphia will be
mustered into the service to-day.
Gen. Dana has been assigned to the com
mand of the defenses of Philadelphia.
New Tons, Jane 20.—A Washington spe
cial to the World says;
There arc strong indications that Lee has
not only achieved the grand project of mass
ing his strength on this side of the Potomac,
bnt he is actually within a short distance of
Wabhington, having moved a considerable
force from Bhepardstpwn and Antietam fords,
down the towpaih of the canal, or else along
the inner roads from Booneeboro and Middle
town, to the vicinity of Foolesville, Bnshville
and Rockville. Prom these points be has di
rect access to the rear oi Washington, and
can, by an expert movement, destroy the rail
road between the Capital and Annapolis Jnnc
tion, unless he should underrate the force
concentrated to oppose him in this design.
The enemy has gained a position of so
much importance upon Hooker's rear, that
there is cause for apprehension concerning
Tyler’s force, which has been holding Mary
land Heights. Although It is hardly probable
that Tyler has been captured, yet it Is possible
that his communication with the array in Vir
ginia, and with the force under Gen. Schenck
has been broken.
A flnnk movement on the part of Hooker
across the lower fords may result disas
trously for the enemy, by isolating bis right
from his new base of operations upon the
Upper Potomac. Whatever truth there may
be in the report oi Leo’s proximity to Wash
ington, there is still opportunity for repelling
his further advance.
KewYobk, June 26.—A Washington special
to the Herald says;
Advices received from Harper’s Ferry to
night, state that Lee's whole force, or the
greater portion of it, is evidently following
Ewell's advance into Maryland and Pennsyl
vania. Ko disposition is as yet manifested to
attack our forces at Harper's Ferry or upon
Maryland Heights. There Is a small rebel
force at Charlestown, but there appears to be
no considerable force this side ot Winchester.
Philadelphia, June 26.—The Press publish
es a special from Harrisburg, staling that Gov.
Curtin received a telegram from the operator
at McConnellsvillc, stating that thcrebcls un
der Jenkins bad entered that town alter a se
vere skirmish with some of Milroy's troops.
Milroy U preparing to drive the rebels out,
and a battle is imminent..
The excitement at Pittsburgh Is unabated.
Tho troops are being organized rapidly.
The Harrisburg correspondent of the Phila
delphia 7Yf« says: “Gen. Kulpe was reln
lorccd to-day by several regiments, and order
ed to repel, any further advance, and will
offer battle on the appearance of the rebels*
It is expected we wilk commence offensive
operations on Friday, (to-day.)
It is generally understood that Hooter's
army at Maryland Heights Is preparing to
meet Lee.
A person from Hagerstown says he thinks
Lee and Longstrcet were there on Wednesday,
and an immense army was bivouacked around
there..
Gen. Rhode’s rebel division occupies Cham
bersburg. The rebels captured about 4,000
horses, and ore still mounting infantry.

Philadelphia, June 26—1:30 p. m. —The
telegraph to Carlisle has not been working
for several hours.
Harrisburg, June 26.— Gen. Knipe, think
ing his force insufficient to meet the enemy,
evacuated Corlislelast night He reports the
rebels 10,000 strong.
New York, June 26.—A Harriabuig spe
cial to the Herald, lost night, says:
The enemy is advancing slowly. Onrtroops
arc cutting down trees, fences, Ac., and barri
cading the road to Carlisle. The rebels say
they will destroy the crops In tho .Cumberland
Volley, and have already done so to a great
extent Two rebel officers were taken pris
oners to-day.
All the drinking saloons in Harrisburg have
been closed by the May on
Considerable reinforcements have been sent
to Gen. Knipe, who will defend what we now
hold of the Cumberland Valley.
Another Harrisburg dispatch, dated 10
o’ clock last evening, says; The rebels appear
to have come to a stand still. Our troops are
advantageously posted. There are no reports
of fighting to-night. The telegraph is still
open to Collide. Ewell’s headquarters arc at
Shippensbnrg.
New York, June 2Gth.— A special from.
Washington to the Evening Post says, neither
alarm nor excitement exists there. There are
iio rebels on the Upper Potomac this side of
Harper’s Ferry. Everything is going on sat
isfactorily to the Government. [Bosh, why
telegraph such stuff?— Eds. Tbib.]
Baltimore, June 26.—Gen. Butterfield, of
Gen. Booker’s staff, arrived in Baltimore last
evening and is in consultation with General
Schenck and Col. Lefferts of the New York
Tlh regiment.
Habbisbubo, June 26—11 p. m. —The rebel
force which occupied Gettysburg, to-dhy was
ibc divlfcion of Gen. Early, belonging to
Longi-trect’s corps.
This makes two corps which ore supposed
to have crossed the Potomac. The troops of
Locgslrcet arc supposed to have crossed at
Shtpardsiowu Ford.
Philadelphia, June 26.—The Washington
Star fcajs: There is nothing known to justify
tie current rumor that Leo has 100,000 men at
Winchester. There is no probability in the
account sajing a large force ot rebels was yes
terday evening, moving from the direction of
Boonesboro to Frederick.
[From the New York Herald’s Dispatches.]
Gbateon’b Station, kvb milss most I
Cab lisle, Fa., June SI, 1863. J
Our forces evacuated Shippensbnrg to-day
at ten minutes past one o’clock.
The enemy charged into Shlppcnsburg, and
the telegraph operator and myself escaped
out of the town on a baud car os the enemy
was coming in.
The enemy fired some volleys, bat did no
Jnjnry that we can hear of There was a per
fect stampede of the citizens of the town.
The rebels brag that they will be in Carlisle
to morrow. They pursued our cavalry to
Stongbstown, on the Pike road. We went to
Newvillo, but had to leave that place at six
o’clock, as a report came in that the rebels
were on the State road, and our forces wore
below us.
The enemy Is now halted about nine miles
west of Carlisle, nl Palmstown. Our cavalry
is in front, about a mile apart One hundred
and fifty rebel cavalry went into Fayetteville
last evening. A citizen mortally wounded
one of the enemy as he came into Fayette
ville. The rebels did no damage to the place.
Most all the goods in the town of Shippens
burg have been sent towards Harrisburg.
The rebels ore taking the hats oft people’s
beads, taking their watches and money, and a
great deal of private property. The rebels
arrested Sheritfßlppey, of Cumberland coun
ty, but released him spin. They took his
hat away from him. At Newbarg and Bo.v
huiy the people are In great alarm. In many
instances the rebels are acting roughly to
citizens, and doing much damage to the tele
graph line, and scouring the country for
plunder. They arc mounting their infantry
as fist as they can get horses lor them.
There Is a fair indication that we will have
to skedaddle from here, perhaps to-night'
Babbisbubg, Pa., June 24.—The rebels arc
within twentj-iive miles of Harrisburg. The
enemy’s column halted about dark about
eight miles the otberside of Carlisle and went
Into camp. The authorities arc in telegraphic
communication with Grayson’s Station, two
miles from the rebel pickets. Their line to
night Is veiy strong.
General Couch has thrown a strong column
in the neighborhood of Gettysburg, on the
enemy’s right flank. This, in connection
with certain movements by the army of the
Potomac in their rear, will make it a danger
ous experiment for them to attempt to hold
the line of the Susquehunnah.
Numerous arrests have been made to-day on
the south side of the river of parties suspect
ed of being rebel spies and guerillas, but on
the cases being investigated, most of them
proved to be refugees. The works on the op
posite side of the river have been completed
and guns are being mounted.
The Philadelphia Gray Reserves, one thou
sand one hundred strong, are still here, but
refuse to be mustered In. Their conduct is
severely commented on by the other troops.
Gen. Andrew Porter arrived hero to-day and
tendered his services to the authorities.
Everything is quiet in the neighborhood ot
Gettysburg and Hanover Junction. Great
activity is being displayed in that quarter to
prevent any demonstration on the line of the
Northern Central Railroad.
It is known here to a certainty that twenty
regiments of rebel infantry passed through
Chambershurg to-day. They were moving In
this direction, and are undoubtedly General
Ewell’s corps (late Stonewall Jackson's)
The opinion of Generals Franklin and
Couch is that the rebels arc now advancing
with serious intent upon the State Capital.
Their move is necessarily slow, as the cavalry
march with the infantry. Every preparation
has been made to give them a proper recep
tion, and our soldiers are buoyant with tno
hopes of a speedy brush. The people , are
passive under the exciting intelligence.
Reports from McConnelhburg state that
the rebels ore in that vicinity, about 30,000.
strong.
The Shlppcnsbnrg operator has just arrived
at Newville, a distance of eleven miles from
the former place. Captain Bopd could not
inform the operator either ns to the character
or force of the advancing rebels. He come
the eleven miles on a hand car in fifty min
uses. A dispatch from Altoona to the Gover
nor states that the rebels marching on Ship
pensburg have a supply train with them three
miles long.
A refugee here, who has means of collect
ing information, informs the Governor from
three sources, as follows: A lady who saw
the rebels in Greencastle saw eight pieces of
artillery on the Diamond, or public square of
t hatpin ce, and a large force of inCmtty. An
other refugee counted seventeen pieces of
artillery, aud judges their force to be aixthous
andgoodmen; and John Whitmore, whoso
farm they occupied, counted eighteen pieces
ofrartilleiy, ana estimates their force to be as
above.
The STth New York made application to the
Governor to-day for horses.
Passengers along the lino of the Northern-
Central Railroad report everything qoiet along
Its line.
A deputation of the soldiers of ISI2 called
upon the Governor to-day, and. tendered
their services to serve in the rifle pits. They
had with them an old ling, tattered and tom
bv bullets and age. They made a singular re
quest—namely, that tin# should be famished
with hint lock muskets, with which they
promised to do great execution. Their ac
ceptance and request were very handsomely
replied to by the-Governor, who stated that
it was true, from some cause, that while other
parts of the State had been most liberal in
famishing men for his call, but very few had

ble men before him would have a happy effect
upon the young men of the place. It Is true
we had war and all its results. • While he
would ever regret that one drop of blood had
been shed, it was no time for parleying.
There were differences of opinion; but there
should be but one mind in the contest about
to be opened at our veiy doors. The Gover
nor iu fervid language depicted the horrors
entailed if the rebellion should succeed, which
he prayed God would avert. He was thankful,
very thankful, to the venerable body, broken
with age, and whose heads were silvered with
gray, for the lesson in doty they had taught
those who were their juniors by enrolling
themselves for duty. (Load cheers given by
the populace for the Governor and veterans.)
They will be stationed in the rifle pits.
A citizen named J. H. Martin, veterinary
surgeon, was arrested to-day for uttering dis
loyal sentiments. Ho took the oath of alle
giance, and was discharged.
In a conversation with,a gentleman from
Baltimore, who arrived here yesterday, I un
derstood that the rebels have no Intention of
attacking Baltimore, much less of possessing
It, and the reasons are clear.
By the occupation of Baltimore, Leo would
entangle ids army in a mesh from which it
could never escape as an army. Again, be
would endanger the city, which is laigely
owned by the wannest friends of the rebellion,
by exposing it to bombardment from the sea.'
Finally, Baltimore has been of more real ser
vice to the rebels In the Union lines since the
war broke out, in thg transmission of contra
band goods, tban it ever could be in any other
respect, in the Union or ont of it. But it
may be said that Lee would find thousands to
Join his standard in Baltimore, and the rebels
badly want meu to fill up their ranks. Grant
ed; nut this, nor the supplies ho might cap
ture there, would counterbalance for one mo
ment, in the mind of a general like Lee, the
reasons previously mentioned.

Indianapolis, June 25, ISB3.
Gen. Bosecrans’ army with the exception of
Van Cleve’s division, left their camp at Mur
freesboro onWednesday night last, and moved
in a southwardly direction.
The news of a battle maybe expected any
time.
THE ABMT OF THE CUMBERLAND.
Now that the army of Bosecrans is authen
tically reported in motion southward, a brief ,
reference to its make up, and morale , will in
terest our readers:

• ORGANIZATION OF THE ABiTT. *
The present organization of the Amy of
the Cumberland was made immediately after
the battle of Murfreesboro. Prior to the'as
signment of Gen. Bosecrans to the command,
it was designated the "Amy of the Ohio, 1 ’
and it had only a divisional organization. _ On
the formation of the Department of the Cum
berland, this army was styled the "Four
teenth Army Corps.” Early in January,
however, an order of the War Department
formed the command into three corps,—dea
gnated respectively the Fourteenth, Tsventr
eth and Twenty-first Corps.

THE ABMT OP BOSE CHANS.
It would be a great mistake to confound
the army of the Cumberland in its present
condition with what it was lost year. Since
the battle of Murfreesboro, In fact, this is a
new army. Drill, discipline and rigorous In
spections have done and are doing their work,
and this army moves .with a power it never
possessed before..
It is the five months that have passed since
its lost great battle that have been assiduous
ly spent in organizing, drilling and disciplin
ing—in bringing It out of the chaos in which
Gen. Bosecransfound it,and nuking it more
of an army and less of a mob . This is quiet
work, does not ring in the public ear, but af
ter oil, this silent training gives victories.
.The result of these mouths or hard work will
be demonstrated the moment thearzny enters
upon an active campaign.
The cavalry of the Army of the Cumber
land, instead of being distributed among the
corps, Is all massed in a separate corps,forming
two divisions of horse, under Major General
Stanley. The object of this is to give greater
ensemble and mobility to the operations of this
important arm of theservice. The cavalry force
of this army is small —much smaller than it
should bo. Yet Gen. Bosecrans has had the
greatest difficulty in obtaining what he has.
He is now making herculean efforts to obtain
more.
The artillery force is , very strong—if we
should judge by theoretical writers, we might
even say too much so. But Gen. Bosecrans
has already proven that he knows how to nao
or till cry.
