TROOPS OPPOSITE WILLIAMSPORT.

On Sunday evening last about one thousand Secession troops arrived opposite Williamsport, and about seven miles from this town, on the Virginia side of the river. They are encamped above the Ferry, and are in full view of the good, loyal, Union loving people of Williamsport, who are not in the last intimidated by their formidable appearance. What the object of quartering these troops at this point is, cannot be divined, but the supposition is that they are there for the twofold purpose of guarding the Ferry, and overawing the opponents of the Secession Ordinance in Berkeley at the election tomorrow.
