Whereas, an armed rebellion exists in a portion of the States of this Union, threatening the destruction of the national Government, periling public and private property, endangering the peace and security of this Commonwealth, and inviting systematic piracy; and whereas, adequate provision does not exist by law to enable the Executive to make the military power of the State as able and efficient as it should be for the common defence of the State and the General Government, and Whereas, An occasion so extraordinary requires prompt legislative power-- Therefore, I, by virtue of the power vested in me, do hereby convene the General Assembly of this Commonwealth, and require the members to meet at their respective Houses at Harrisburg, on Tuesday, April 30th, at noon, there to take into consideration and adopt such measures in the premises as the present exigencies may demand.

The Montgomery Advertiser says this intelligence is from a Virginia gentleman now in Washington city, who had it direct from McCullough's own lips. From the Richmond (Va.) Examiner, of April 23.
