Bai timork, August 8 , 18*34. We learn from a gentleman who arrlvod here this morn log from tbe Upper Potomac that tbo entire rebel foroe yesterday evacuated tbe Maryland side or tbe Potomac, moving off in great baste. Tbeir rear guard crossed at Bhepberdstown at eleven o'clock yesterday morning, and tbe balance of tbe in voders crossed at Hancock about tbo Fame time. Previous to leaving tboy sent a cavalry force back to llagerstown yesterday and arrested and carried off four prominent Union oltizcns .<? hostages for rebel citizens of tbat town arrested by order of General Hunter. From tbe south side of the Potomac wo learn tbat Gcnoral Early was moving up tbe valfey towards Winchester with bis harvest trains during all last week, scouring tbe country for conscripts and grain, conse quently making but slow progress. The information received a week since that the rebels would make a feint movement on Maryland merely to cover bis return trains his beon verified to the fullest extent, and they are now all moving off towards Staun ton. Tbat tbey will make their escape, however, without interruption, we do not bellovo. The A et? of the Rebel ? at Hagerstown* Whuixotov, August 8, 1864. From a gentleman who arrived here on Saturday from Hagerstowo, where he bas been sojourning for two weeks past, wo gel somo interesting particulars of the doings of the rebels in tbat vicinity. When tho rebe s took possession of the town tbey pro ceeded to institute a thorough seurch of tbe stores. As the merchants bad not replenished tbeir stocks since tbe former visit of the rebels tbe latter got but little, with the exception of a smiil quantity of shoes bad bats, mostly taken from Samuel Konsekalp, batter. . At tbe groccry stores they filled their haversacks wltb sugar and their canteens with molasses, and at one or two stores tbey turned tbe molasses out and let it run Into tbe streets. Seeing tbat many of tbe citizens were frightened and anxious to ;et away, tbe rebels told them to remain quietly at home, and tbey would not be molested. Tbo rebels did not keep tbeir promise, however, and amongst other acts of robbery tbey compelled several gentlemen to take off tbeir boots and bats and give thorn up. .Tared ford, a printer of ibis city, who was In Hagera town at tbe time, bad bis bat taken from bis head while standing on tbe street viewing tho proceedings of tbe rebels. Rebel sympathizers fared worse, if possible, than Union men. Jonas Winters, a confectioner, who refused to opao bis store, had bis doors broken In wltb aa axe, and mo st of bis store fixtures destroyed. Rev. Dabney Bill, at one time pastor of tbe Wesley cl-.uich In ibis city, was with this marauding party. Be did not take an active part part In breaking open tbo store?, but he looked on and countenanced the doiogs or the rebels, and no doubt shared in tho plunder. Tbe trains of cars rep >rtod to bave boon burnt by this t arty, when tboy entered Hagerstowo, wero destroyed by our own troops In order to prevent tbem from falling Into tbe hands of the rebels, as tbe cars contained a a valuable cargo of freight, lnoluding several thousand dollars worth of liquor. ? Tbe rebels bad a list of those merchants who bad goods bid away. This list is said to have been furnished them by prominent secessionists. The ttarrlaburg Telegrams. HARRMnt so, Pa., August 8, 1804.

Ibis meeting was not up under tbo ansploes of tbo Tbirteeutb Ward McCle lao Arsociatlon, which now numbers some eighty- ecvea members, and of wbicb Mr. Robert J Kirk is President. Shortly alter eight o'clock tbe meeting was organized, when Mr. William H. Tracy wag appointod Chairman and Mr. Goo go H.Rutsor Sec retary. Mr. Trace v stated tbe objuuts of tho mooting, after which a Ions list or resolutions was read and adopt ed. These resolutions set forth tho necessity or General McClellan 's electiou to tbe Presideuoy, aud advocated tbe sumo In strong language. Mr. J/tikjs II. Lynch was then Introduced to tbe meeting, wbo alluded to tbo present no. bappy state of affairs, decrying Mr. Lincoln's administration, and culling upon his he* -era to cast tlioir votes In favor of McClellan. The negro rocelved a larga share of tils attention, and lie asserted that this war was for no other purpose tban the liberation of tbe black mau. It was not a war tor the I'n ou What was the remedy?

New features were looming up every minute relative to tbis moss meeting, and there was no doubt that it would bo one of tbe ' greatest demonstrate no that ever took place In the city. Tho carmen were maklcg preparations to turn out witb their carts, and tbe 'longshoremen would march In procession over two thousand strong, and it was rurr. red that ail the militia, and tbe veterans of tbe Army of tho Potomac at present In the city, would also swell the demonstration. There were twelve or thirteen w <rds preparing to march on the ground of tbe mooting. I t-ch man would wear a flag n hln shoulder, and be hope 1 the Thirteenth ward would not be beUindlui'd on the -.'tca sion. Witb a row parsing delicate compliments to r evi dent Lincoln, Or. Stevens concluded by glvluga McCitllan song, to the air of "Glory Hallelujah." Sir. Hiium KPTCHrM, Jr., was next called out, and made a short speech. Ho advocated tbo noceos'ty <? en ergetic action. Mr. Lincoln, although his friend? v ere dropping from lilm dally, was not so weak as hen. I, -bt appear to be. There were thousands throughout t: e land who depended upon tbe government for thulr dally bread. In olden times wo had expe rienced In our city elections tbe power of tba Cus tom House, and how much more power would Linc-ln exorcise, as tbe dispenser of Innumerable ofilces and public places. Mr. Ketcbum concluded witb en elo quent tribute to tbe mer-ts of General McClellan. Mr. John Kerrigan being Introduced, gave In tplrited style, an excellent song of his own composition, which gave a historic narrative of Mr. Lincoln's career since bis Inauguration The meeting then adjourned. netting of the Twentieth Wurd McClel Un Union Association. A large and enthusiastic meeting of the above armed association was held last evoning at Continental Hall, cor ner or Thirty-fourth street end Eighth avenue. The meet ing was called to order by the chairman, Mr. G. W. Brooks, who staled the object of tbc meeting to be to perfect the organization of the club and make arrange ments for attending en mats* the grand meeting to be held on Wednesday, the 10th Inst. Mr. Wm Wmr Hwvfit was the first speaker of (he even ing, who, after reviewing the past acts o: the present ad ministration, went on to say that It the people allowed Abraham Lincoln to remain In the White House another four fears thoy would certainly regret It.

We allowed ourselves to -un behind the aeo. lin believed that George B. McClellan fell and thought for the ureal maasns of ttio people, and that his soul was above party He believed no man truer to the principles of democracy ? no man truer to tho great principlis of freedom and truth, than Gece ral George B. McClellan. Sir. lleweit closed his remarks by propping three choers for Little Mac, which wore given with a will. Mr. XjowkmhS' G, secretary of the association, next read a series or resolutions, which were adopted unanimously amid loud and prolouged cheering. The Uai resolution read as follows ? Resolved, That while wo reol the Iron yoke on our nectcs; while we sec our streets, aiieys and highways crowded with numberless cripples; wuile we see our land Oiled with widows and i rphans, wo look upon Major General Georgo B. McClellan ;>? our redeemer snd restorer to reace and happiness, and demand of the cnicngo Con vention not to ignore popular opinion? not to shut their oars to the deafening voices coming from the North, the Knst, tho South and tho West, and glvo to the people their choice, and with him a united, prosperous and hap py country. Hon. P. Norton then addressed the vast sstenv blage. We had been told nearly four years :>go in electing Abraham Lincoln we were forging the chains of despotism. We wore said then to be disloyal, lie went on to show how tho people hud benn rob'ccl or tli?ir liberties until tbey wero positively the mots', wretched people on tbecartb. Tbo honorable gentletnau, In speaalng of General McClellan , said that ne bad dono what no other man hud dono since the breaking out of the war? nume'y, doclarlng his oplnoos and Ins plana for putting down the rebellion, and be believed that If God na1 sndoved (iene ral MoClollan with a divine knowledso he would havo had no occasion for altering either bis opinions or his pans. Every attempt to destroy? every attempt to calnmnlato? has but jorved to make blm the more popu lar with the people. He would not glvo Mr. Lincoln a copper; bo was g Ing to say a sixpence, but that was so scarce a thing sit ce this administration went iiito nower he thought li best to l?avo that aione; but he wouldn't give a good old fashioned copper to Old Abe fir hla chances o: tho Presidency. Wo are to have a grand ms?s meeting on Wednea Uy evening next. Let every man be there; lot eve v man bring another, and my word for it you will do more good towards securing th ) nomination of George B McClellan than ufty coi.ventlons.
