[Correspondence of Associated Press. J A letter received from the Army of the Poto mac, a a ted yesterday, says all was quiet ex cepting the usual picket firing in front of the Ninth Corps. The firing on our right on Thursday and Friday was occasioned by a movement of troops from one position to an cther,which the enemy evidently did not under fctand, and were perhaps, fearful that it meant another attack on the right at Ream's Station, on the Weldon railroad.

[Special Correspondence of the Evening Star.] Bagbbstowit, Saturday morning, August 27,?Editor atar: The usual "weekly scare' took place here yesterday, which caused a general stampede of those who feared another vjait from the dreaded rebels. On Thursday evening, about dark, three companies of the 1st Virginia Union cavalry, who were on duty at Falling Waters, were at tacked by about an equal number of rebel cavalrymen. Onr men held their ground for some time, but the attacking party having re ceived reinforcements In the meantime, our cavalrymen withdrew to Wllliamsport. Darkness having set in by this time, the rebels made no farther demonstration during the night, but early Friday morning they ad vanced a heavy skirmish line to the Virginia 1118 Potomac river, immediately oppo site Wllliamsport. The town at this time was held by one regiment of cavalry belonging to General Averill's command. Skirmishing across the river immediately ensued, which was kept up wltn much vim, but "nobody hurt" until about 10 o'clock, when the main lore* ol the rebels, consisting of one brigade of cavairy, numbering perhaps four thousand men, withdrew from opposite Willlamsport and moved np the river shore towards McCoy's r erry, some two miles above. Before doing eo, however, they planted a battery on Lem on's Hilk near the toll-gate on the Martins SBfB which completely commanded William* port. From this battery they threw a number of shells into the town Three bouses werestruck, but no damage worthy of note was done. Mr Wilson, correspondent of the New York Herald, had his horse disabled by the explosion of a shell. Fortunately most of the shells fired lrcnn this battery exploded In the air; other wise the damage to property might have been serioa*. After arriving at McCoy's Ferry the rebel command halted, and some eight or ten of them crossed the river, but soon returned without accomplishing any thing. From MoCoy 's they moved np to Cherry Run, on the Potomac, about thirteen miles from Hagers town, and a short distance from Cle&rsprtn* Here they made a feint as tf to crass the river, which th?*y did not do, however. After leav ing Cherry Ran they again moved on up the river, but nothing has been beard of them since, and at the present time (7 o'clock a. m ) it is not known here whether they have crossed the river or not. Military men here do not be lieve that it is the lnttBtton ot the rebela to Invade Maryland at this point, and It Is thought that this force is only making a feint in this direction to divsrt attention from other points. Had the rebels seen fit to cross the river they eould have done so either at McCoy's Ferry or Cherry Run, without opposition, as the fords are not guarded farther up than Williams port While the skirmishing waa going on across the river. Gen. Averill's forces, whloh had been encamped near Saarpabnrg, reached the rebel eatreaehmeata on Mohier's farm, two miles from Hageratown, on the Willlamsport turnpike, four aulas from the latter place, where they were drawn up in line of battle, and remained, the greater portion ot the day. These entrenchments were erected last sammer by the rebate on their retreat after the battle of A&ut*l?'o'ck>cJ<. afterthe rebels had with drawn from opposite Wllllamport, General Averlil and his staff rode Into Hagerstowo, aad established his headquarters at the Wash ington Hoase, where he remained until 4 o'clock la the afternoon, when he again re sumed his saddle, aad moved up the old Na tional turnpike in the direction of Cherry Baa. . ^ While Ooa. Averiu was at Hageretownbe waa visited bv Gen. Casta*, Whi'^rar eux rounded on Thandaynear Shepheretown by Breckinridge'a tntaatry, hat who succeeded <a cutting his way out, aad rsailiins Maryland In safety with his cemnaad, having wowed the river at Sh#pherdstown. Theee two dis tinguished cavalry oticon spent some time la Consultation, after which Gen. Custar ret a mod to the point at which his command w&s en. camped. About 11 o'clock Thursday night it was first whispered around on the streets of this town that the rebels had made their appearanoe at Falling Waters, and the news spread rapidly. About an hour afterwards tnose who had re tired for the night were aroused bjr the tread of horses, cows and sheep, which wen being hur riedly driven off the farmers of Washington county for safety. The rear wa? brought up by a large string of four-horse wagons loaded with wheat that bad already been thrashed, but which the millers had refused to receive, owing to the anticipated rebel invasion. The confusion and excitement occasioned by this grand skedaddle at the dead hour of the night can be better imagined than described. In the morning, shortly after the merchants had opened their stores and were ready to transact business, a portion oi (Jen. A verdl's wagon train came dashing up the Sharpsburg turnpike pell mell, and was driven through the town at a rapid rate, taking the road lead ing to (Gettysburg. Post Uuartermaster Wray, who had his office on north Potomac street, ot this town, "pulled stakes" and despatched his trains in the same direction as that taken by Averill's. Rumors now flew thick and fast, and some of the boys who are fond of the "ske daddle excitement," circulated the report that e J"e kad succeeded in crossing the river At William sport, and were marching on Hageratown. The stores were then immedi ately closed, and the Union citizens were to be seen rnshing wildly around with carpet bags in hand, eager to obtain some means oi con veyance to getoutof town. Omnibuses, stages, carriages, buggies and wagons were soon on the road to Pennsylvania, all loaded down with live freight. la almost less time than it takes to write this paragraph the town was left in the possession of a few Union cavalry men and several newspaper correspondents. Lpon Gen. Averill reaching Hagerstown he despatched a courier after his train, which was overtaken at X^eitereburg and brought back. This was a source of great encouragement to tne skedaddlers, and many of those who left in the morning returned in the course of the day. I regret to say that apart of General Averill's command is in a bad state of discipline, aad the farmers of this county complain that they have buffered as much by the depredations or these men as by those of the rebels. Some of the officers appear to have no control of the men, or if they nave they neglect to exercise it. Since General Averill has been encamped at Sharps burg he has been industriously engaged in reorganizing his command, and a better state of affairs can now be looked for. There is no better fighting material in tbe Union army than in General Averill's command, and during the past six months his men have seen very rough service, of whieh their clothing and worn shoes bear evidence. They are all now, however, being furnished with new clothing, remounted and equipped, and a portion of them have been supplied with Sharp's seven-shooter carbines. There Is a fine opening up th<s way for sev eral military detectives, as there are a number ef men lurking around in this county who claim to be Government scouts, but who are in fact a body of horse-thieves. Hardly a niebt passes but that our citizens and farmers lose a number of horses. FROM SHERIDAN'S COMMAND. The Enemy Make an Attack on his Centre ?It is easily repnlsed with Loss to the Enemy. [Special Correspondence of the Evening Star.] i rkdebtck. Md., August 27.?Considerable cannonading was heard here yesterday after, noon from the direction of the position cccupied by General Sheridan. I learn from passengers from Harper's Ferry that it was occasioned by a weak attack of the enemy on General Sheri dan's center, which was easily repulsed by swinging our left wing around on their flank, th a loss to the enemy ot one hundred and lifty killed, and about an equal number in priso ners. This morning the enemy appear to be retir ing from General Sheridan's front, in tbe di rection of Smithfield. This may be occasioned by our successes in front ot Richmond necessi tating the withdrawal ot Early's troops to that point to hold Grant in check, or It may be for the purpose of attempting to cross the river, either higher up or lower down. Should they attempt this, however, they will be promptly met, as there are a sufficient number of Union troops in Maryland guarding the river fords to hold them in check. For the past few days our city has been swarming with Union relugees from the west ern part of Washington county; but as the rebels have made no serious attempt to cross the river, many of them are making prepara tions to return home. Our citizens do not seem to be alarmed in the least by the wild reports constantly in circulation, and business Is coin* on briskly. 6 6 The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company engaFed in reconstructing the water tanks and replacing; the otber property ile stroyed at the Monocacy Junction by the rebels during their recent visit to this place. SHERMAN. Important Movements Reported. Lottisvillb, Aug. 27.?An officer from the #01i.sa^8 that Sherman was moving the bulk of his army to a position on the Macon and Georgia railroad, in the rear of Hood's forces Heavy skirmishing was going on. There were no casualties on our side. The Inaction Abont Over. [Correspondence of the Cincinnati Gazette.) If the rebels should conclude to resign their cherished city to the Federal troops, the opin ion prevails that it will be only to make a more desperate and decided stand at the village of Eastpert, some six miles south of their pres ent location. At this place the junction is formed between the Macon and Montgomery railroads, and it is supposed much more for midable works, both military and artificial, are located. The city of Atlanta merely is clearly of little importance in the eyes of the Com manding General as a desirable military posi tion. Had the object been solely to take that place, the matter would have been concluded long ago, for there has not been a day in the past four weeks when our army could not have occupied it by one of the most simple move ments known to military men. But Sherman does not want Atlanta unless he can also re ceive Hood's whole army within his lines as prisoners of war. Hood well understands our commander's main object. He therefore racks his already almost exhausted brain for new Slans which may assist him in warding off the nai blow until the latest possible moment, and evidently believes that by presenting a bold front 8nd assuming a defiant attitude he will deceive even Sherman, the man who can see far into and divine the intentions of a wily, subtile foe. Reported Crossing of Rebels into Mary land. [Cerrespondence Philadelphia Inquirer.] Harrisbcbg, August 27.?The Governor re ceived a despatch from General Couch this morning, laconically announcing that "our signal corps reports the rebels as having crossed the Potomac into Maryland this morn ing." No particulars were given, and It was believed that if the enemy had crossed it was by the ford at Sheppardstown, where there was some heavy skirmishing all day yesterday. The numbers and purposes of the enemy in Maryland are not yet known here, bnt their crossing at Sheppardstown with some men presage an advance eastward.

A Reconnoissance on Friday?The Enemy Driven?Capture of Prisoners?A Recon noissance on Saturday?The Enemy Re tiring? Gen'l Sheridan Advancing. [Correspondence of the Baltimore American. Headquarters Middle Military Divis ion, August 27, 9 a. m.?Yesterday (Friday) afternoon at five o'clock General Crook moved out Colonel Well's brigade, of Thoburn's di vision, from the left of our line, to reconnoitre the enemy's position and ascertain if he had anv force of importance stationed in his front. Our men advanced in line of battle, with a heavy skirmish line thrown out in front, and soon became engaged with the enemy's line of skirmishers, who rapidly retreated on their re serves, who were stationed a short distance in rear of their skirmish line. Our men advanced boldlv and rapidly, until they came within five hundred yards of the enemy's line drawn up to receive them, and who opened a heavy fire of muskety, which lasted for nearly twenty min utes, when the enemy broke and ran under cover of a battery of artillery which they had in the meantime brought up and stationed in front of the works in exactly the same position where they had their battery last Thursday wh^n we made a similar reconnoissance. After the enemy had broken and retreated, which they did in great disorder, some of them throwing down their arms to expedite their es cape, Col. Lowell, of the 2d Massachusetts, dashed in with a regiment of cavalry, and, charging across an open field killed and wound ed quite a number, and succeeded in capturing 09 prisoners, amongst them one Lientenant Colonel and Ave other officers of lesser grade. As soon as the enemy had retired under cov er of bis artillery, in close proximity to his earthworks, which extend across the Charles town road, their battery opened on our line with great fury, thundering away very rapid ly, but with no effect whatevey, as they fired at random, and most of their shells fell short or exploded over the heads of our men. Col. Wella having obtained the information desired and accomplished the ohiect of the re connoissance, quietly withdrew his command, taking off bis killed and wounded, which will not exceed 100. The 5th New York heavy artillery, at present serving as infantry, were conspicuous for their gallantry. If they had not been recaUed they would have charged clear ap to the enemy's earthworks. Among the wounded I regret to announce Major Caspar Urban,abrave and distinguished officer. He was struck on the shoulder by a spent ball. After our men had been recalled the enemy continued to shell us with their battery, and were replied to by battery B, 5th U. S. artille ry, commanded by Capt. Dupont. The artil lery duel lasted about half an hour, when the enemy's battery was withdrawn. Some corn stacks, situated in the rear of the enemy's skirmish line, and behind which they hare been in the habit of secreting themselves, were set on fire by the explosion of one of our shells and burned to the ground. A reconnoissance now in progress on the left has developed the fact that the enemy have withdrawn their forces in our imme diate front, and evacuated their earthworks. It is rumored they are moving in the direction ?f fnforaaUoiT"was received here yesterday evening that Gen. Averill had a spirited fight at Williamsport, with two regiments of rebel cavalry and some infantry, who had attempt ?>d to cross at that place. During the early part of the engagement Averill sent to Cutter for assistance, but af terwards sent him word that he had sufficient force and had driven back the enemy. You may look for the immediate resumption of active operations la this Department, and, unless I am very much mistaken, we will have the long looked-for battle early in the coming week.

The opinion prevails that Grant's recent movement* hare necessitated the recalling of Early to Richmond, while some conjecture that he intends crossing Into Maryland at Shepherdstown or Wilhameport.

Th? latest accounts from the front ase to the effect that the result of the fighting on Thursday on the Weldon road was most dis astrous to the rebels. The previous reports ol their terrible losses in men are fully confirmed. The ret'l dead lay three or four deep all over the field, and the scene is said to hare been more ghastly than on any other battle-field of the war of the same extent. As our men foujsht for the most part behind defences, which though flight, afforded some protection. the loss on our side was not a third of the rebel loss. that Hancock's withdrawal on the nignt of the battle was in accordance with previous orders from Gen. Grant, and w.is not compulsory from the rebels. Hancock had been ordered after executing the work of de struction of the railroad assigr.ed to him to fall back upon the5th corps, in the meantime the rebels made their attack attack and after the fighting ?t the day, Hancock carried out th? order to lall back. It is reported by the boat this morning that we lose but eight kuns, and that these were lost in consequence of the sndden fall or rain ren dering it impossible to drag them o? the heavy ground after the horses were shot. They were, however, spiked and otherwise disabled, pre vious to being abandoned. Our loss in prisoners is mnch less than was at first supposed, as large numbers of the miss ing who strangled away have since come in. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. TUI CHICAGO CONVENTION. Chicago, Aug. 20.?The New York delega tion held a final meeting this morning, and after a brief consultation a note was taken as to who should be the choice of the delegation for the Presidency, with the following result: McCIel lau 53, scattering 13. The vote of the Ohio delegation yesterday stood for McClellan 16; against 26. The vote of the Missouri delegation was as follows: For McClellan, 13 : scattering, 0. Neither Ohio nor Missouri will vote as a unit. Indiana Is 1e for McClellan; 0 against him. Illinois is 22 tor McClellan; 10 against him. It is notexpected that more than a temporary organization and the appointment of the usual committees will be effected to-day. A majority ot both the delegations from Ken tucky are said to be for McClellan. As yet little or no difference of opinion is manifested as to the character of the platform. An armistice, convention of the States, and the adoption of every means consistent with Chris tianity and civilization to bring about a per manent and honorable peace, seem to be the points generally agreed upon by all delega tions. Vallandigham is understood to iiave pledged to the candidate of the Convention, whoever he may be, and this is reported >0 be the posi tion of Fernando Wood. Wood is said to bold the position that he will support the nominee of the convention unless another convention is called and a peace de mocrat nominated. The section of the ampitheater set apart for ladles and gentlemen was filled to overfiowing, and an immense outside attendance. The portion of the auditorium without seats, where the people were densely packed, gave way at eleven o'clock, and numbers were pre cipitated to the ground, a distance of ten feet. Nobody was seriously injured, and good humor prevailed over the accident. Gov. Seymour.

Rucker, Chief Quartermaster, De pot of Washington. I have placed schooners at Upper and Lower Cedar Poiuts, in the positions occupied by the light boats, previous to their de struction by the rebels. From sunset until sunrise a light will be awing from each of the schooners. The reason given by captains of vessels, chartered and owned by the United States Quartermaster Department, for anchoring in the Potomac river at night, was, that they feared that they would run their Teasels aground if they attempted to run past the shoals after dark. The lamps placed on the schooners will give alight sufficintly strong to enable all pilots to pass up and down the river with safety, provided they govern themselves by the charts provided by United States Coast Surrey. From and after this date.no vessel propelled by steam will be allowed to anchor, excepting la suoh weather as by running the loss of the vesael or cargo might be endangered. All masters of vessels are directed to report any neglect on the part of the parties on board of the light schooners, in not keeping their lights burn ing at all hours of the night A copy of this circular will be kept posted In the pilot house of every vessel owned and chartered by the Government, plying on the Potomac river, E.
