Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Trade with Virginians.—

Gen. Senenck, commanding the Eighth Army Corps, has issued new orders in relation to the selling of goods to Virginia, from which it appears that no goods, wares or merchandise whatever shall be transported for purposes of trade to any point South of the Potomac, but that family supplies may be in quantities actually required for family consumption, where satisfactory evidence of the loyalty of the proposed recipient is furnished to the Revenue officers. Such officers will be placed at Harper’s Ferry, Williamsport, Hancock and other points along the line of the Potomac. If Maryland had seceded, as her disloyal sons desired her to do, these officers would have been placed along the Pennsylvania line, and our people would now be in the same destitute condition as those of Virginia.— Oh! the beauties of secession
