Troops have not been concen tring there for so many days without a definite object, aud It is manifest now what the purpose of governnunt is.

With this purpose Major Ueneril Kefm, of Pennsylvania, wis ordered to leave Philadelphia yesterday for the camp at York, with Instructions to advance at once with an army of fifteen thousand m*u on Baltimore. !f any resistance Is offered, be will Issue a proclamation announcing his Intention to march hla f'ree through that city, and warning the loyal citizens the 'women and children, to leave, and will then cut his way through at all hazards It is probable, however, that the threat of visiting Baltimore with so severe a chastiB" ment will bring the resistant* to their sen?<n. and thus save the effusion of blood.?AT.
