Among the elect to-day were John Q-. Nicolay, Esq. and Major John Hay, the President's Private Secretary. The announcement of their names elicited freat applause and cheering. Wm. Rapley, '.eq..

Ad adjourned meeting of this association was held at Island Hall last evening, C. S. Noyes, Esq.. in the chair, and W. J. M urtagli, Esq , secretary. The Chair stated the first business in order to be reports from tbe collectors which had been appointed at the previous meeting. They were then called in the order of their appointment, and together paid into the hands oftbe treasurer tbe sum of ??5,079.19. On motion, R. H. Graham, Esq., was relieved from duty as collector, and B. S- Donelson was appointed to fill the vacancy. Dr. G. P. Fen wick was also appointed in the place of Geo. White, Esq. On motion, Capt. J. R. McConnell was added to the committee. On motion, the ward exemption club were requested to meet at the hall at 7 o'clock this (Tuesday) evening, one hour previous to the general meeting of the citizens. Justice Boswell moved that tbe Association pledge itself to raise whatever amout might be necessary to fill the quota of the ward, and that no man drafted should leave the ward; which was carried with enthusiasm. Mr. R. F. Bartle suggested that a large sum of money might be collected at the Arsenal If arrangements conld be made so that their sub scriptions, payable the first of the month, could be received. Mr. Jas. King stated that he had made large collections at the Arsenal, which would be paid on pay day, for which he and Mr. Dud ley wo aid be personally responsible, and Mr. Semmes wonld advance the money. At this point a delegation of colored men en tered the roem, beaded by Mr. John F. N. Wil kinson, and presented to tbe association the sum of $401-92, the result of a meeting of the colored people at the Wesley Zion Church. He stated that the notice of the meeting had been so short that the number present was not ao large as desired. With sufficient time they could collect #?.???? instead of sin?1 Meetings would be held every evening until the draft took place. A communication was received from Colin Crusor, stating that ?125 of the S400 had been collected by the colored committee. A complimentary vote to the colored people appreciatory of their efforts in raising this handsome amount was unanimously passed. On motion the following gentlemen were ad ded to the collection committee:?B. F. Barker, Alexander Skinner, George Z. Collison, J. G. Dudley, W. A. Hughes, J. Yanskiver, James I.a fontaine, John Webster, Levi Joues, H. S. Litchfleld, C? R. L. Crown, R. Magee, Jno. T. Springman, John Strainer, John Amery, W. H. West, Jonas B.Ellis, Otho Boswell, G. R. Thompson, George Wright, William Wise, Captain Gedaey, Justice Boswell, T. Hunt. Mr. Semmes suggested that In view ot the fact that the association had pledged itself to fill the qnota ot the ward It wonld be well for those present toc?me forward and state what amount they would pledge themselves to give, provi ded It was filled, the money not to be used un less needed for that purpose. Tbe speaker beaded the list with S50<>, and In a very.few moments, the sum of $2,170 was eubscribed. The collections for the evening were then stated by the secretary as follows :?From col lectors, t5.097.19; collection from colored peo pie, ?101?2; new subscription??, S5S3.11; guar anty lnnd, $2 170; total, ffb 231.22. After transacting some further detail busi ness in relation to tbe collectors the meeting adjourned- It is not neceasary to say anything of tbe spirit that characterized the meeting. The result speaks for itself. ThTAVAL GUNNERY CATECHISM, adapted to 1~ the latest Official Regulation??, and approved by the Bureau ol Ordnance, Navy Department. By J D. Rrandt $1.51.

Obtaining Reinfarreuaen??, h? Drives Them Back to Bunker Hill nnd Re-occnpie? Mnrtinsbarg. We learn from partie? who arrived here lis night from Hageretown, that on Sunday the rebels, nnder McCausland and Johnson, ad vanced form Bunker Hill and attacked Avarili at Martinsburg. Averill, after a spirited resistance, fell back to Hainesyile, a short distance from Falling Waters, on the Virginia side of the river, where he took np a position. Dujing Sunday night Averill received rein forcements, and at 4 o'clock yesterday morning advanced against the rebels and drove tn-m back to Bunker Hill, and re-occupied Martina burg. The lose in these engagements was not defi nitely known, but is supposed to be light. On Sunday a body of dismounted cavalry was dispatched irom the camp at Hagerstowa to Williamsport- when? they are now guarding the fords of tbe river. The cannonading canned by the affair was distinctly heard at Hageretown, and caused considerable anxiety as to the result Passengers who came down Irom Hag?r - town to Frederick yesterday state that when passing through Mtddletown Valley, at eleven o'clock a. m., continuons cannonading could be heard in the direction of Berry ville, from the point where Sheridan was engaged with Early. The stage passed quite a number of panick farmers in the -alley, wbo were running of their horse? for fear that the rebels might suc ceed in getting across the river. Tbe subse quent news that Sheridan had beaten Early badly, driving him through Winchester, reas sured tbe farmers, who took the back track homeward with their cattle. FHOM THB FRONT. The United States mail steamer Charlo tte Vanderbilt, Capt. Oolmay, arrived here this morning at to o'clock from City Point with the army mails and passengers. She reports that an engagement is anticipa ted, as (heavy skirmishing and picket firing was still going on in the vicinity of the Wel don Road yesterday morning at 10 o'clock. Tbe rebels continue to throw an occasional shell at our working parties on our new rail road, but with little or no effect. Sunday night the movement s of the rebela in the vicinity of Sycamore church Indicated that tbey were making preparations tor anoth er raid in our rear for the purpose, it was sup posed, of getting to City Point if possible. Ru mors were afloat at City Point Sunday night that tbe rebele were withia ? miles of that place, but no person could be found wbo saw them. Our troops were called out and held in read iness, but up to ten o'clock yesterday morning no rebels had made their apperrance. The man killed on the downward trip of the Vanderbilt was John M. Reed. His body was conveyed to City Point, where it was iaterred. The man that committed the deed was placed under guard there, and will be tried by court martial. The steamer Keyport, Capt. E. S. Tolbert, while coming out ot the channel at Fortress Monroe yesterday, ran against an anchor left there by the wreckers, and stove In her bottom. She filled rapidly, and It was found necessary to run her on the flats, where she sunk in twelve feet water a few moments after tbe ac cident. All on board were saved, and wreck ers have been sent for to raise her. A SALUTE IN HONOR OF GEN. SHERIDAN'S VICTORY.
