All the public property and cotton were removed prior to the withdrawal. Lieutenant-Colonel W. C. Starr, Ninth Virginia infantry, and about eighty of his command were surprised and captured at Summerville, Va., by a superior force of rebel cavalry under the command of Major Bailey. Large and enthusiastic meetings were this day held at Pittsburgh, Pa., Oswego, N. Y., Stamford and Middletown, Conn., to promote enlistments into the army under the call of President Lincoln for additional troops. At the meeting at Stamford two thousand five hundred dollars were collected for the families of volunteers, and in that of Oswego resolutions were unanimously adopted in favor of a more vigorous prosecution of the war; the confiscation of rebel property; the employment of the slaves of fugitive and rebel masters in the military and naval forces

Great excitement existed at Pittsburgh, Pa., on account of the rumored approach of the rebels under General Lee. The merchants and mechanics organized themselves into military companies for the defence of the city; business was suspended, all the bars, restaurants, and drinking-saloons were closed, and the sale or giving away of liquors stopped. --Chambersburgh, Pa., was entered by one thousand eight hundred rebel cavalry under General Jenkins, who sacked the town and its vicinity.--(Doc. 33.)

The expedition that left Suffolk, Va., on the eleventh instant, returned to-day. Its leading object was to investigate the strength of, and destroy the three leading strongholds of the rebels on the Blackwater River, all of which were within a distance of twenty-five miles from Suffolk.--the citizens of Pittsburgh, Pa., held a mass meeting, at which martial law was called for and skulkers denounced. A general suspension of business and the raising of volunteer companies for defence were strenuously advocated. The ship Isaac Webb, in lat. 40° 35′, long. 68° 45′, was captured by the rebel privateer Tacony, and released on giving bonds for forty thousand dollars; the crew and passengers of the brig Umpire, which was captured and destroyed by the Tacony on the sixteenth instant, in lat. 37°, long.
n, in Virginia, did not disturb himself with any such activity. He watched, waited, and was puzzled. Milroy's stampede, the clamor of which, it seems, might have come to him from over the western mountains; the cries of help from Harrisburgh, Pittsburgh, Carlisle, and minor Pennsylvania towns; the tremulous appeals from Philadelphia and Baltimore — all these did not serve to arouse him from his lethargy, or give him the least idea of where his enemy was. It was not until a voice of command frohe attention of a surgeon. We were fortunate in having during these days the volunteer aid of Dr. Hooper, from Boston, who devoted himself to this latter work. Mr. Clark, from New-Hampshire, Mr. Hawkins, from Media, Pa., and Mr. Shippen, from Pittsburgh, also lent their assistance, and all these gentlemen materially aided us at this and at the second lodge until it was fully organized.

The military commissioners of the several counties are especially requested to exert themselves in securing a prompt response to this call. The troops will all be organized into regiments and well armed before being ordered into service; and now, fellow-citizens of the State, in the name and behalf of the best government on earth, let me implore you to lay aside all other duties and obligations, and come forward promptly and cheerfully for the pres

Five companies of Pennsylvania cavalry had been loaded up on the cars of the Cleveland and Pittsburgh road at Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon, to take part in the chase, but the news of the capture of the entire rebel force rendered their departure unnecessary. Losses caused by Morgan's raid. Jackson C. H. Ohio, August 8, 1863.

Some guess that this army of Lee, This penniless army of Lee, Is destined to play us some ruinous pranks, To surprise Philadelphia, and clean out her banks And Uncle Sam's mint, and their treasures untold In “greenbacks” and nickel, and silver and gold, This vagabond army of Lee. And others will have it that Lee, Or a part of this army of Lee, Is moving North-West, and to Pittsburgh is bound, To sack it, and blow up, or burn to the ground Its factories of great guns, and gunboats — that all Its warlike establishments surely must fall To the wrath of this army of Lee. And others are certain that Lee, And the savage battalions of Lee, Are moving for Baltimore, there, in the name Of pious Jeff Davis, to kindle the flame Of a roaring rebellion — that this is the game, The grand calculation and object and aim, Of these terrible Tartars of Lee.

This bold attempt of the conspirator to furnish the enemies of the Government with heavy ordnance was frustrated by the vigilance and prompt action of the people of Pittsburg. When the fact became known that Quartermaster Taliaferro (a Virginian) was about to send these guns from the arsenal, an immense meeting of the citizens, called by the Mayor, was held, and the guns were retained. The conspirators, in Congress and out of it, denounced this exhibition of mob law bitterly.

Report of the Investigating Committee, February 12, 1861. When the indictment of the Grand Jury and the report of the Committee were made, Floyd was far beyond the reach of marshals and courts. He had fled in disgrace from the National Capital, and was an honored guest of the public authorities at Richmond, See note 8, page 127. who boldly defied the national power. The excitement on account of the robbery in the Interior Department was followed by intelligence of the proceedings at Pittsburg, already mentioned, See page 123. where an immense meeting of the citizens was held in the street, in front of the Court House, in the evening of the 27th, December, 1860. and they resolved that it was the duty of the President to purge his Cabinet of every man known to give aid and comfort to, or in any way countenancing, the revolt of any State against the authority of the Constitution and the laws of the Union. On the morning of the same day, December 27, 1860. the news of the occ

I hope I may say nothing in opposition to the spirit of the Constitution, contrary to the integrity of the Union, or which will prove inimical to the liberties of the people or to the peace of the whole country.
