VUM UIUIU luv buuiilj 1(4 ill PotHISyl VM)1a Chamberaburg ?u occupied yesterday by rebel cavalry and artillery. Rebel cavalry bat been seen at several paints near that place Goreroor Cur tin has called tbe people to arms en masse, aad General Couch it endeavoring to concentrate the element* of defence at Carl Ihle. Our latest news from Harrisburg Rtatee that General Arerill baa driven the robels oat or Cbambersburg , but not before tbey had burned the greater part of the town, including nearly aH tbe public buildings. Snob the situation In Pennsylvania at present. How is it tbat tbe enemy has been able to get down the valley te tbe Potomac, to oross that river, traverse Maryland and appear in 1 cnnsylvania before the country hears positive announcement ef his approach T Tbe answer is that this is probably the way la which tbe government prevents alarm. Doubtless tbe movements of this force wera known, but no intelligence of it was permitted to reach tbe publio by lines through Harper's Ferry, Frederick or Baltimore; and, consequently, the first we hear is that tbe enemy are in a Northern city. It must not,' therefore, be sup posed that tLo force at Cbambersburg dropped from the heavens. That force came down t!.e .Shenandoah valley. On the 18th of July, just ten dava ago, this foroe was at Snicker's ferry, on one side of tbe Shenandoah river, and General Wright, with part of the Army of tbe Potomac, was at the same place on the other side of the snme river. But the rebels went into the woods a little ways, and General Vl nPht thought they Lad gone to Richmond, and perhaps thought that he had better hurry to Grant, so he came away. The rebels there upon turned around and went to Pennsylvania, and the cavalry reoently in Okambersburg may be the advance of the same force tbat was In Maryland or of tbat force aagmentod, as it is said to be, by A. P. Hill's corps. Is this a wholesale life or death invasion of the North, with the temporary relinquishment of Richmond, in the hope to conquer a peace at Philadelphia ? Is it a mere raid T Or is it a more extended attempt at the counter irritant strategy by which in the late advance on Washington the enemy hoped to draw Gran* from the James river ? So far as we can rely up?n any accounts from tbe threatened district, it is not a mere raid, and we think that In 1862 aad 1863 Lee must have seon how utterly hope If.-'Sj it would be to risk his whole cause on the chances of a battle in a Northern State. Wo suppose the counter irritant view to be the correct one. * We believe that Lee could make this strategy very formidable to tbe North, and wo bel<eve that he could very easily overdo it. From Lees point of view this operation ap pears pafer than perhaps it really is. He may have eighty thousand mon. He has Peters burg and Richmond magnificently fortified. It would seem, then, tbat thirty or forty thousand men could, with the forts, hold Grant in check, while the other forty or fifty thousand could In vade the North. But from Grant's point of view th's may be very different. Grant has just developed at Deep Bottom a change of tactics, and this change may prove to >e bad for the thirty thousand. We must awuit fur ther news from Graut before it ia quite possi ble to say whethor we ought not to rejoice over this last invasion. From Atlanta the news couim slowly, espe dally the particulars of tbe battle of Fridav last, in which tbe rebels claim a victory. Hq doubt the War Department knows more than it cares to te!!; but the statement tbat General iilair had buried t^o thousand two hundred of the enemy's men ?ijc.ffa ILat ha could not have been driven far. aad also that it was a severe drive to the enemy. Wo oppressed yeslerdity tbe opinion that the Sou papers would ,.?,ange tLeir tune over Hood s Victory of Friday last. We find tbat they have already done so. Hood had stated tbat ho had captured twenty-two guns and subsequently corrected -this by the statement that he had captured only thirtoea. He can be forgiven for this error, and tha Riahmond Examiner could even "be satisfied without a gun if be 'bad killed VcPher.wu and driven Sherman acrott the CkattahnorW Drivinir Sherman across the Chattahoochee will be l ard for Hood; but he may now uaderstunl that the | R chmond paper, will be satisfied with nothing leas. It la very satisfactory to know Ibe opinion of one ot tbe ablest soldiers in the Southern con federacy on the situation at Atlanta ? th*t sol dier being our enemy and commuted heart nnd soul against as. Ilia opinion is tb*t Lbs attempt to bold Atlanta must inevitab'y be the destruc tlon of Hood's army. This is pleasant to bear in tbe bot weather, when Hood is wholly com mitted to tbe attempt to bold that city. It ap poars to be certain tbnt this vw the wry point upon which Johnston was "relieved.'' He re fused to sacrifice his army in a rain attempt at the impossible. Hardee also bad tbe same opinion of the impossibility of holding Atlanta, and refused tbe com maid or the army on tbe same point Heod took command on the des perate terms of sacrificing bis army rather than continuing the retreat. All this rebel arrangement at the Sooth Is good news in various ways. It is good news that Hood is in command rather than Johnston. It is good news that the final struggle of tbe campaign is to he at Atlanta; thai thus the oampaign may close in definite victory seon rather (ban be dragged oot la longer weary marches and manoeuvres. Bat It Is better news than all that Davis deems It neoessary te put the Georgia csmpa'gn on neb a desperate footing as that of Immediate battle at the risk of destruction. He would not do so If he had a clear hope of success at any quarter. If he bad any hope that by Invasion, demonstration, or battle Lse could be rid ef Grant in another month, or even In sixty days, his orders to (be Southern army would be, "Don't lose men by useless slaughter, but keep the same petiey; dritw Sbermsn on; give him all the cities that are necessary to keep him quiet, aod In sixty lays 1 will give yon help." But his orders low are, "Do ail tbut you uas alone, eves at she risk of annihilation." And tb? army under iood understands this as a declaration that tbore Is no hop* anywhere that 1* bettor than tSefr bope to whip Bberman. vFrom thm they ?nderstand thnt tbe confederacy is ou its last t irow ?

We publish this morning torn* further par ticulars of tbe new treasonable organisation, latel y brought to light la Missouri, koowa M the Order of American Knight*. It is plainly nothing more nor less than the old conoern of the Knights of the Goldeh Circle la a near disguise, and muoh more adroitly adapted than the old one to the desperate enterprise of a Northern oopperbead peaoe insurrection in sup port of Jeff. Davis. It is believed that the grand object aimed at. by this Order of American Knights is an inde pendent Northwestern confederacy; but this, we think, is a mistake. We dare say that the designs of these conspirators are, first, the overthrow of the present federal admin istration; and, secondly, the trantfer of the Northwestern SUtes and New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland to Jeff. Davis, leaving New England "out in the cold." Under this arrangement the following objects would be secured, to wit: ? First, a Southern confederacy, which, in embracing the Missis sippi river, from its sources to ths sea, and all its tributaries, and the city of New Tork and its Inland commercial communications, wonld secure tbe parties concerned a geographical Uuion consistent, harmonious and ooinplete; secondly, a permanent Southern balanoe of power in the general government, which would at once be secured by the exclusion of the six New England States, with their twelve Sena tors, and tbe exclusion of the States and Terri tories went of tbe Uocky Mountains. Under this reconstruction of the Union the Northern copperhead democracy would revel again iu the spoils of tbe federal government; for the only thing required of them to secure the run of the kitchen would be implicit obe dience to the will of their imperial lords and masters of the South, after tbe fashion of poor Old Buchanan. At all events, this idea of a union of the Northwestern States with the Davis confederacy is not a new one. It will be remembered that when General Bragg, in the summer of 1862, with his powerful army from Tennesseo Invaded Kentucky and threatened a descent upon Louisville and Cincinnati, he is sued a proclamation to the people of the North western States, inviting them "to join the causo of tbe South," and -upon tbe plea that their commere'al interests were the same. Bragg, or rather Jeff. Davis, was bothered about the Mis sissippi river. He said that it could not be divided between a Northern and a Southern confederacy, and so Bragg was despatched to 1 try this experiment of a direct appeal, at the head of an advancing army, to tbe people of the Northwestern States. This is the idea which, under, the rebel Gene ral Price, of Missouri, as Supreme Commander of the Southern section, and Clement L. Val landlgham as Supreme Commander of the Northern section, has brought about this new fraternity of traitors, styling itself the Order or ? American Knights. We presume that the first movement of these conspirators will be to- se cure, as tho poaoe-at-any-price factions, the control of the Chicago Presidential Convention ol the 29lh August, and that, if they secure such control of tbe democratic party, their neft ob ject will be to Involve its rank and file, on or be fore the day of the Presidential election, in a gen eral ,-.rh to ams for Jbe ?? Abraham Liaooln and the exaltation of Jeff. Davis. Tiie Knights of the Americas Order arc hungry and desperate from a long fast, and, with alf their professions of religion and philanthropy, are really conspiring for a dash at the spoils at tho point of the bayonet. Vallandighaia has gair.ed an important 6tep in behalf of this insurrectionary programme in securing his own election as a delegate from Ohio to the Chicago Convention. The rebel ambassadors lately gathered at Niagara Falls, under the manipulations of Georgo Sanders, have meantime been trying tho effect of a flank movement upon Old Abo in support of the Northern peace democracy. What will be the results at Chicago wo cannot tell. That Convention may do much to save tbe country; but, on the other hand, it may do mncb towards the rtila of the coun try. The copperhead foace organ3, from Maine to Missouri, are turning tho cn!d shoulder upon General McCiellan. His late patriotic West Point speech, on the broad and ptrong platform of tbe prosecution of the- war for <t?e constitution and the Uuion, is not in tbe copperhead programme. Ths war demo cracy, however, heartily endorse t' ;a We-it Point speech of McCiellan. Hero, then, in the appointment of this experienced, capable and po;ular soldier to the command of the Depart ment of Washington, is an opportunity offered to the administration to kill off this conspiracy of the Order of American Kuighta and the Chicajro Convention at a single blow. We c>.umend this view of the su'ject to the special attention of President Lkaoln. New York Crnr Conqtiemional Delsox ti. ?N -The prMont Repr*aeata tires In Congress fro ai this city are a burning disgrace to us. Unless tboM who art making op the^lates Tor the fail election throw them all over board and plaee men of more ability and com mon sense before the people, thoy may rely npon it they will be repudiated. Not one of the present Representative* from this oity Is worthy of the position. They compose, in fact, one of the poorest, weak eat, silliest sets that was ever srut to Congress. ' New York, being, aa it Is, the commercial metropolis of the country, the centre of the com merce, trade and finances of the nation, should be represented in Congress by mea of the first calibre ? men who will be able to speak and act far New York in a way that will com mand the attention of Congroe* and the coun try, instead of sneers, aa has been the ease with the present weak and dilutod New York elty delegation. The democratic party in this city is now divided tato three factions, aod there will no ?loubt very soon be two or throe more. Tuis is for the purpose of gottliig rwady for another trade or bargain between the managers ? a sort of wholesale and retail diapo<il of tb? offices and 'at places to the higLest bidder. If tbeee gentlemen do not throw the present Cougres sional Representatives all orerboird, or If th?y attempt to run any of them, they will Qud that the people will repudiate them in Mo. and their bargains, whether secret or open, will all be rejected by the publlo at the polls. What s wanted Is for some political body to make a bold move aad nominate mea who will be a oredlt to the city while to Congress.

Tun Alleged Giiat Northwestern Peace Conspiiuot ? A Flan* Movement Aoainst Gen eral MoClhajln.? We have circumstantial re ports of a great Northwestern peace conspira cy, including throughout the North a muster roll of two hundred thousand peace men, ready, at the tap of the drum, to take up arms against the present administration. It is fur ther reported that these conspirators of the new Order of Knights of Amerioa are enrolled as MoClellan minute mea. These and many more details, It appears, have beea brought to light by an active Inquisition of a certain pro vost marshal in Missouri. Now, while we think it altogether probable that among the virulent peace agitators of die Vullandigham school there does exist a secret organisation dangerous to the internal peace of the North, we hare no doubt that this report of General McClellan 's connection with It is a flunlcmorement of his enemies? Vallaadigbam democrats and shoddy republicans ? to kill him off. We find none of th^ Vallandigham peace organs ad vacating the Presidential olaiins of General McClellan. They want peace oa any terms that will be aooeptable to Jeff. Davis, while McClellan advocates that peace which will have for its basis the Union and the con stitution. He Is not the man wanted by the copperhead peace agitators. His late patriotic Union speech at West Point has rendered bim wholly unavailable to the peaoe-at-any-price faction. As a constitutional conservative be is equally obnoxious to the shoddy republicans and their new ultra negro platform of no peace short of tbe total abolition of slavery. But this com bination of extremists and disorganisem on both sides must inevitably operate greatly to widen the popularity of MoClellan among con servative men of all parties. Henee we find some of fce most sagacious of the republican journals advocating the recall of MoClellan to the Department of Washington. They wisely deaire to secure his name, his services and his great personal influence among the war demo cracy on tbe side of the administration, and iu behalf of a successful prosecution of the war, as the paramount object of all truly loyal mea. In this view we are glad to hear that some of tbe moat eminent and Influential republicans have undertaken to urge upon Mr. Lincoln the appointment Indicated. Will he exhibit she sagacity of a statesman, or still be guided by the small prejudices of party malignants In this matter ? H>s shortest way to success from the present military and politioal campaigns is through a treaty of peace with this immense body of conservative war men, who have an abiding faith In the political and military abj^ties and wisdom of General McClellan. We await, not without hope, but not without fear, tbe decision of President Linooln. A gieat body of war democrats and veteran soldiers are ready on a short ootloe to serve the administration under McClellan. Are they desirable at this crisis as allies or enemies of tue administration ? That is the question. Pkopkr Testimonial for MoCi.*llan. ? Wo have received ft communication arglng the which we have repeatedly expressed as to the fit and proper testimonial to be pre sented bj the people to Gener-.il McCleUan ? namely, a substantial tribute to his genius and services in the dLape of an estate, whioh would bo valuable and enduring to himself and bis family, ra'hor than a mere toy sword, whi^ jt is now tbe habit? and a verj b^ one it fs? to present to every polit'io^* br'gadier in the peryiocv It i* propo^ b^the writer that the hdmlrers of General McCleUan should make a popular sjibncrlprton, a^ a dollar eaoh, an 1 tbns raise a Xiundrod thousand dollars for tbo purchase of an estate. This would be the best evidence of the esteem la which he is held by the masses. It wotTO be a "monu m -nt more enduring" and far more valu ablfc "than brass." It could be easily accom plished, and would speak in most emphatic terms for the good will of the people. Such public tributos are not without honorable pre cedents. Tho great Edmund Burke wa* the recipient ol such a gift from a grateful people. So was William Cobbett, and still more recently Mr. Cobden. It was tbe custom with tbe aucionts to reward their brave and useful citizens thus. It ia not derogatory to the dignity of any publio man to accept such an offering ia testimony of popular ap preciation. The private friends of Geaoral MoClellan presented him with a floe house la taker of their regard. Let the people new teadei bliu an equally substantial testimonial wbici wiii remain with hi* children for ever. 8chrm* Trkpartso for Tin Nxrr Lioisla tar*.
