No private property shall be injured or d) crossed at Shepherdstown. The letter says: The enemy's camps on the Maryland Heights opposite Harper's Ferry could plainly be seen away to our right, but Gen Lee seemed to care nothing for them. Gen. Wright, whose brigade was in front on this day, ran a narrow escape of being captured by some of the enemy's cavalry, for w of the Yankee army. But no one was molested by our army, only a sharp lookout being kept while the troops and wagons were passing, to prevent any disturbance. Gen. Lee passed us this morning, and was greeted with enthusiastic cheering along the whole line. We are now encamped about four miles cast of Chambersburg, but where to

he position of the two armies. It appears evident to us from Mead's dispatch of Friday that Gen. Lee has at last attained the object of his long and anxious labors, and that he has brought the remintentions. The capture of Winchester opened the way into the heart of Pennsylvania, and into it Lee poured his whole army. The rapid progress of his advanced corps soon compelled the Yankee army to leave their position around Washington and come in pursuit of him, and this, beyond all doubt, Lee foresaw. Longstreet had advanced as far as Gettysburg, when last Wednesday he came in contact wit to defeat their whole army with his single corps, what may we, not expect from the whole army of Lee? If the decisive battle has yet been fought, it must have been on the 4th, 5th, or 6th of Juwe can place implicit reliance on it. We therefore publish it for what it is worth.

er, aided by the Provost Marshal and Chief of Police, is directed to search the houses of suspected citizens to seize arms that may be found. Another order commands all loyal citizens to hoist the national flag on the 4th of July. Another closes all places of business save newspaper offices, ice cream saloons, soda fountains, and fruit stands.

Schenck is not going to allow brushes to foment the public feeling, nor cut-throat razors to hatch treason. The alarm and apprehension of the enemy is plainly exhibited in these measures. They fear the Marylanders. The sympathizers with the rebels must be kept down — they must be disarmed. Their fears are well grounded.--If Gen. Lee defeats their main Army Maryland will recruit his ranks to the full extent of his lessees in the great battle in which he will gain his victory.
