TELEGRAMS FROM CARLISLE.
CARLISLE, Pa., Thursday, June 25 – 10 P. M.
We do not expect the enemy here to-night.
Gen. EWELL’S headquarters are at Shippensburgh.
Gen. KNIPE is obeying instructions, and making the best disposition of his forces that can be made under the circumstances.
The enemy’s force is very strong.
Gen. EWELL, when at Chambersburg, issued a printed proclamation to the citizens not to sell liquor to his soldiers under certain penalties. We have a copy of the proclamatory order, dated on the 22 inst.
The enemy is feeling along very cautiously. His cavalry may annoy us here before morning, but this is doubtful.
