Bricklayers’ Meetiuk Provost Marshal’s Notice. Meeting of the School Committee. A special meeting of the School Committee was held at their room on Friday evening, Joseph C. Noyes, Esq., in the chair. Communications from several gcutlemou recommending persons as candidates for Prin cipal ol the High School, were received and placed on file. Sundry bills were presented and ordered paid. It was voted that the sub committees of tbe High, Willis and Grammar Schools and a special committee fof the Primary Schools be instructed to examine the teachere of these schools before, or as soon after, the commence ment of the schools as may be, and give cer tificates as the law requires. The motion to have two sessions a day ol the High School—from It to 12 A. M., and from 2 to 5 P. M.—alter considerable debate, was passed by a decisive vote. The motion to have two sessions a day in the Willis School was lost by a tie vote. The fall term of the High School will, therefore, commence with two sessions a day, and the Willis School with but one. Several members of the Board were opposed to two sessions a day in the High School for the girls, but tbe importance of two sessions for the boys was so apparent that they waived all oth er considerations and voted for it. The Forthcoming Draft We are suspicious that a slight misappre hension exists in the public mind as to the time when the draft is to take place. It is generally supposed that it has been ordered for Sept. 5th. We are told by those who claim to kuow, i hat so far is this common impres sion from being correct that the draft has not yet been ordered at all. The Provost Mar shals have been directed to have their enroll ments made up and perfected by tbe 5th of Sept., blit the order lor the diaft itself re mains to be promulgated, U- S. Circuit Court.

Bosket Bleacheby.—'The Maine Bonnet Bleacbery, at 3u8 Congress Street, which has been in successful operation for several years, has, under the management of Mr. James B. Kacklyft, fully sustained its former reputation. Straw. Lace and Leghorn Bonnets and gen tlemen's Hats are bleached and pressed, so that in style and appearance they would be mistaken for the latest imported article. In these times of high prices it is very commend able in persons who have the means of grati ' fyiug every desire, and are expected to lead in the fashions, to practice economy for the lieueflt ol those of limited means who are alruggiing to keep up with the limes. A sav ing of a few dollars ou a bonnet and in other directions may enable the rich to relieve the sufferings of the poor, and those in moderate circutnslances to maintain their independence. Bbowx’s Commercial Colleue.— Mr. Brown, whose health had become somewhat impaired by constant application to business, found it absolutely necessary to take leave of absenee lor a few weeks, for the purpose of availing himself of a change of air, exercise, and such invigorating amusements as bis physical system demanded. He has now re turned, much improved in health, and is ready to devote his time to bis classes as heretofore. Koine of the best accountants and business men of our city have been educated at Brown’s Commercial College, which aflords every facil ity that can be desired to obtain a thorough business education. Mr. Brown has been so long and favorably kuowu in this city that a statement of the advantages of his college would be like “carrying coal to Newcastle.” Democratic Expectations.—Hen. I’er ley Poore, iu writing from tbe Cliftou Home, w here, he says, “oue half the Democrats who intend to figure at Chicago, either as dele gale*, substitutes or outside operators, have made it convenient to call during the last fortnight,” says: “I have not seen tbe that delegate who be lieves that Mr. Lincoln can be deleated, (al though some growl about probable military interference with the freedom of ballot in the border States,) but they want to get peace doctrines before the people, and they are wil ling to wait four years more. Indeed, I heard a leading New York Democrat declare to-day that If Lincoln would but “go in for pea<e ignoring the nigger question,’ he would go iu for Linco’u. A long-haired chap in seedy gray, who is an escaped aecesh prisoner from the cauip at Sandusky, didn’t seem to see it iu that light.” Personae.—Adjutaut Charles K.

BY TELEGRAPH -TO THE EVENING PAPERS. ofiirial Ittrjinlr/trM front Stcrilurr/ Stanton. War Dl l'aktmknt, / 'Washington. Aug. 27—10.20 A. M. ( To Maj. Hen. IAx :—On Thursday, the 25lh, | Geu. Hancock, who was south of Ream's sta tion, was attacked several times during the day, but he repulsed the enemy in every as sault In the afternoon a combined attack was made on his centre and left, which, after one of th-: most desperate battles of the war, resulted in the enemy withdrawing from the tleld, leaving their dead and wounded on the ground. Tlie details are given in the following official reports of GeD. Grant, Gen. Meade aud Gen. Hancock: The following is just received: St coni Army Corps. Aug. 20.—For GeD. Humphreys—1 he attack about 5.30 P. M. was probably intended to be simultaneously by Wilcox on my centre and Ileth on iny left. The enemy formed in the woods, placed their artillery in position and opened a heavy can nonade, lasting about fliteen minutes. They then assaulted Miles’ force. He resisted tenaciously, but the enemy broke his lines. Some ot Gibbon's troops were hurried over to repair the damage,and the enemy only gained a slight foothold. They soon attempted on my extreme ie t to drive Gibbon's division from his line. His meu had beeu much wearied in rushing over to Gen. Miles and hack. Dur ing the r> p ‘ated assaults Gen. Gibbons suc ceeded in forming a line, and the enemy, who were pressing ou with great enthusiasm, were severely checked by tbe dismounted cavalry under Gen. Gregg, which he handsomely led. Miles regained most of his entrenchments, distinguishing himself. All he had to work with were such small parties as could be ral lied and formed by staff officers. Tbe fight was continued until dark, the euemy being held in check by artillery, dismounted cavalry and skirmishers. At dark we withdrew, for reasons slated. The Chief of Artillery re ports that he lost about 250 horses. The enemy made no advance up to a late hour last night, holding as far as could he seen some of our captured guns with their skirmish lines. They must have suffered heavily. Our own loss, including cavalry, will, perhaps, not exceed 1200 or 1500, though this is surmise, as the command is not yet or ganized. Capt Brownson, of my staff, was mortallv wounded, and died during theuight. Col. Walker, A. A. A G., is missing. This i> acknowledged to have beeu one of the most determined and desperate fights of the war, resembling Spottsylvat ia iu its char acter, though the number engaged gives it less importance. A lew more good troops would have given a victory of considerable importance. I forward this forenoon, as prisoners from tbe li>-ld, Wilcox and Hetb. Major Angell, of my stall', saw and con versed with two prisoners of Malione’s divis ion last night. I do not find them this morn ing. They said Mahoue’s division, with the exception of one brigade, was there. (Signed) W. 8. Hancock, Maj. Gen. U. S. Grant, Lieut. General. The f tllowing is just received : Second Corps, Avy.Mtk, 12 3Q P. Af.—A safeguard that was left on the battle-field re mained there uiitil after daylight this moru j in*. At that time the enemy had all disap peared, leaving their dead on the field un buried. This shows bow severely they were punished, and, doubtless, beating of tbe ar rival of reinforcements, they feared the results of to-day if they remained. (Signed) G.G. Mkade, Maj. Gen. The following is just received: Second Army Corps, Aug. 2WA, 1 P. Jf.— i Since sending my last dispatch I have con veis -d with the saleguard referred to. He did not leave the ndd until after sunrise. At that time nearly all the enemy had left, moving to wards Petersburg. He says they abandoned not only their dead but their wounded also. He conversed with an officer, who said their losses were greater than ever before during the war. The safe guard says he was over the field, and it waa covered with the enemy's dead and wounded. He has seen a great many battle-fields, but uever such a sight. Very few of tbe dead were ours, nearly all belonging to the enemy. All of our wouuded were brought off, but our dead were unburied. 1 have instructed Gen. I Gregg to make an effort to seud a party to the field and bury the dead. (Signed) G G. Mkade, Major General U, S. A. To U. S. Grant, Lieut. General. Our forces hold the Weldon railroad, and In a dispatch, dated at :t P. M. yesterday, Gen Grant says that their “loss of this road seems to he a blow to tbe enemy be cannot stand. 1 think 1 do not overstate tbe loss of the ene my iu the last two weeks at 1U,000 killed and wouuded. We have lost heavily, but ours has bten mostly in captured when the euemy gaiued temporary advantages. The number of rebel prisoners taken on our side has not yet been reported." Gen. Grant makes the following report of an unsuccessful attack by the enemy on Gen. ’ Butler's picket line on Thursday : ‘‘Yesterday (Thutsday) morning the enemy drove iu Butler’s picket Hue. The picket guard soon rallied, however, and drove the em my back and re-established their Hue. The result was one killed, sixteen wouuded and fourteen missing on our side. Two command ing officers and flfty-niue enlisted men were captured from the euemy. What their casu allies were iu killed and wouuded we do not know. (Signed) Edwin M. Stanton, . Secretary of War.

Another dispatch gives the following ex tract from the Richmond Examiner of yester day :—“Fort Morgan is in the euemy's posses sion. Whether blown up or evacuated is not known.” Gen. Sheridan, in a dispatch dated yester day at 2 1-2 I’. M., reports: “The enemy left my front last night, failing hack to Smith Held or middle way. We cap tured 101 prisoners yesterday and inflicted a loss of 150 killed and wounded. There have been a few leinls to cross the river by cavalry at Williamsport, but there was no strength shown. The indications to day are that they will fall hack out of the valley. Other reports state that the enemy is leaving the Shenan doah Valley.” Nothing has Ireen received Irom Gen. Sher man for two days. (Signed) E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War. From the Army before Richmond. The Assault on Hancock’s Forces. Washington, Aug. 27. It is elated unofficially that at tne time of the attack on Gen. Hancock he was engaged in the work of destroying the Weldon rail road, and bis men being scattered along a con siderable line, the rebels were able to do some damage before our forces could be consol i da ted. The rebels captured some guus, it is said, by the aid of their sharpshooters, who were concealed in a cornfield, who shot the horses and men, and then made a rush upon the guus. dragging them within their skirmish lines, but it is doubtful if they got any of them off the field. These batteries as reorganized, consist of only four guns to a battery, and, consequently, if the rebels had succeeded in carrying ou an me lour naileries iney are re ported to have had at one time, it would been but sixteen guns. Gen. Barlow's division, 2d corps, is said to have lost considerable in prisoners at the time □ ill made hit first onset. Terrible were the losses of the rebels, and they were obliged to retreat, leaving us again in possession of the coveted Weldon railroad. New York, Aug. 28. The morning papers contained nothing ad ditional about Thursday’s battle. The Hagerstown dispatch to the Herald, dated 26th, states that the enemy endeavored to cross the river at Williamsport and other places, but were prevented by our forces. A dispatch from the cavalry headquarters, dated Saturdty night, states that no rebelt have as yet crossed the river, and that all is quiet at Shepardstown, Williamstown and Hagerst- wn. A Harper’s Ferry dispatch to the Hera'd, dated the 27tb, slates that a careful reconno s sance that morning developed the fact that the rebels had wi hdrawn from our front dur ing the night. The cavalry pushed on and occupied Chailestown without meeting the enemy. The opinion prevails that Grant’s recent move necessitates the recalling of Early to Richmond, while some conjecture that he in tends crossing into Maryland at Shepards town or Williamsport. Washixgtox. Aug. 28. A letter from the army ol the i’olomac, dat ed yesterday, says the portion of the line of the Weldon railroad recaptured by the rebels on Thursday extends from Beam’s station about three miles northwardly. The road had been previously destroyed, and cannot be of any use to the enemy while we continue to hold a portion of it north, and between that and Petersburg. The latter portion is secure ly in our possession. Everything was quiet along the entire front at last accounts, with the exception of picket firing, and both parties were engaged in bury ing the dead and caring for the wounded. A letter from the upper Potomac says the rebel cavalry force was last Been at Cherry Run. eleven miles west west of Hagerstown, on Friday. The shelling of Williamsport by the enemy from the opposite side of the river on Friday 1 did no damage to individusls, but three bouses were somewhat damaged. " From Memphis. Canto, 111., Aug. 26. Advices from Memphis says Geo. Washburn has issued an order permitting the cotton now in Memphis to be shipped North; also estab lishing supply stores In the district of Ten and stating the amount of supplies which may be imported to such places. Memphis is limited to $10,000,006 and Co lumbus to $50,000. Supplies are to be sold only by loyal merchants to loyal persons re siding in the limits ot the districts. The order also provides that no contraband of war, nor liquors, drugs, medicines, salt, cotton, cords or gray cloth shall be imported, except with the approval of the Commanding General. Merchants In Memphis having cords or gray cloth are ordered immediately to ship litem to some loyal Statu. Geo. Washburn compliments bis officers and men and the Memphis mitilia for their prompt and soldierly conduct in defence of ! the city agaiust the rebel forces of Forrest. The (test estimates place our losses in the raid on Memphis at 15 killed, 50 wounded and 140 mls-iug, the latter including 80 citizens, lhe raiders arc said to have captured 220 I prisoners. The rebel loss at Uernaudez on Sunday night was 50 killed, 100 wounded aud 50 mis I sing. | The Government transport J. C. Miller was captured, plundered and burned on the 18th on the Arkansas river, between Pine Bluff and Little Rock, by guerrillas. All persons on board, Including Soldiers,were taken prisoners. 1 Railroad Accident — A Train Mttotrn Orrr hy a Hurricane. Cincinnati, Aug. 11. An accident occurred on the Indianapolis & ; Cincinnati Uailroad on Friday, by which thirty persons were injured, one or two fatally. No one was ki led. The traiu consisted of three passenger cars and one baggage car, which were completely wrtsked. The accident was caused by a hurricane. The engineer of the traiu raw it coming, and just as the train reach d Weitzel's bridge, he put on all steam in outer to clear the bridge aud obtain tbe shelter of an embankment just ahead of it.— The tornado, however, struck the train with such ft rce as to lift tbe cars from the track.— T e two passenger care made two revolutions and landed with ahelr wheels uppermost in a ravine. Stone walls were leveled by the force of the wiod, and the massive roof of a large storehouse was lifted in the air and carried a considerable distance. Indian Drpredationa. St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 27.

The steamer Thomas Scott, from New Or leans 20th, arrived this moruning. She re ports that while off Charleston Thursday morning heard heavy firing. Tbe steamer Yazoo arrived at New Orleans on the I9th The FungSbung was to sail on ihe 21st for New Y’ork. There is no army or navy news In the New Orleans papers. Capt. Bulkley, per the Thos. Scott, reports that when passing Mobile Bav our land forces i had planted mortars within 300 yards of Fort Morgan. FROM MOBILE. Particular* of the Xaeat Engagement in Mobile Bay—Operation* of the federal fleet—Arrival of Sick and Wounded Sole dier* from Sew Orleans. Washington, Aug. 2i. The Navy Department is lu receipt of dis patches from Admiral Farragut, dated Mobile Bay, 12th, he says: Notwithstanding the loss of life particularly to the Hartford and terrible disaster to the Tecumseh, the result of the fight was a glori I ous victory and lie has reason to feel proud of I his officers, seamen and marines of the squad ron, lor it has never fallen to the lot of an of ficer to he thus situated and thus sustained.— Regular discipline will bring men to any amount ol endurance, hut it is the natural power of hidden dangers, particularly when so awful destruction ol human life as the tor pedo, which requires more than discipline to overcome. I In the course of the narrative the Admiral I says: “As I had an elevated position in the main rigging, near the top, I was able to overlook not only the Hanford, hut the other vessels of , the fleet. 1 witnessed the terrible effects of the enemy's shots and the good conduct of the men at the guns, and although no doubt their hearts sickened as mine did when shipmates were struck down beiore them, jet it was but a moments hesitation to lay their comrades ! aside and spring again to their deadly work. The Admiral also says it was only at the urgent request of the cbanlain and command ing officers that they yielded to the Brooklyn the privelege of being the leading ship ol the line, as she had four chase guns and an inge nious arrangeineut of picking up torpedoes, and because, in their judgement, the flag ship ought not to he too much exposed. This be behgves is an error, lor apart from the fact ' that exposure is one of the penalties of rank iu the navy, it always will be the aim of the enemy to destroy ships and so it appeared lu the sequel. Such au attempt was very per sistently made, but providence did not permit it to be successlul. Caiuo, 111., Aug. 28. The steamers Continental and Leviathan from New Orleans, 20th, have arrived. Col. Dwight, Commissioner of Exchange, corrects the statement published iu the news papers concerning the exchange of prisoners at Tyler, Texas. He says no right has been waived temporarily or permanently in the ex change, which is man lor man, leaving all dispute where they stood before. A letter from the sqiiadrou in Mobile Bay, dated the loth, says a naval reconnoisance on the loth, towards Mobile, found formidable, but not insurmountable, ol structiors, besides batteries, rams and sunken vessels, and a strong casemated fort mounting ten guns. Id all the spaces between the batteries and sunk en vessels, and between both shores, w.re piles, the tops of which where sawed off just below the surface of the water and have heavy iron bolts in them, sharpen at the upper end, so as to tear off the bottom o: a boat passing over them. Men were seen w.a king over two ram lock ing contrivances. Tbe whaaves were crowd- i ed with steamboats and among them four English built crafis, | robahly blockade ruu- j ners. The streets of the city were completely deserted. The rebel* are completely cut oil from their rear works. The health of the army and uavv is good.— The fleet was still pou ding a»ar at Fort Morgan with considers hie effect. No casual ties are reported on our side. Intelligence from the Bio Grande is to the effect that the rebel General Ford occupied Brownsville two days after our forces evacu ated the place, ond procceeded to rent out the propeitv of Unionists, but the Mayor of the city continued to exercise his functions.— Ford has only a small loice and is evidently prepared for a rapid retreat if neces-ary. New Yoke, Aug. 28. A U. S. transport from New Orleans 21st. j arrived to night with 134 sick aud wounded soldiers. She brings the following news from Mobile: Several gunboats had gone up the river as far as Dog River Bar. 'lbe Metac< met and Selma made a recon no isance within three miles of Mobile and found <he rebel steamer I Nashville sunk across the channel. The gun- I boat Morgan was lying at a wharf at Mobile and they opened fire on her. She steamed out and returned the Are, aiming principally at the Selma, her lata consort. Ihebatleiies | around Dug River Bar are not manned. Admiral Farragut is busy putting things in order. The Hartford was being repaired.— The Admiral has succeeded in obtaining the services of the man who set the torpedoes and i he is now taking them up. Our soldiers and : sailor are in the best of spirits. The fire of Fort Morgan on the Tennessee does not injure her a particle. The Chicago Conecntion. Chic 'Ago, Aug. 27. Eceniny—The National Utdou Mass Con- j veuliou at Bryan's Ball, was largely attended. Amos Kendall, President. Resolutions were adopted denouncing the ' aduiiuisu attou ; declaring the ouly solution ot j our troubles is iu the di-plac ineut of the present admiuistratlou; that the die a ationof the Southern leaders as well as President Lin coln's ultimatum, are alike impracticable aud tavuriug the earliest return ul peace, ailain able on a basis of the constitution aud the Union. Ml'lniylit—The mass meetiug to night was large and boi-terously enthusiastic. Three different meetings were organized. Among ihe speakers were Leslie Coomit of ' Keulucky , ex-Guv. Weller of California, aud others. The meeting was exceedingly enthusiastic for McClellan. It is rumored to-night that the Ohio delega- i tion will bolt il McClellan is nominated; that the Keulucky delegates will bolt if the Guth rie delegation is recoguizied; that Senator j Sprague has brought the news that Mr. Lin coln is willing to witldiaw; that lbe New York delegation is doubtful for McClellan.— The latter rumor, as well as the others, create considerable excitemen. Tie vote ot the New York delegation, it is ' believed, will decide the no-tiinatiou. The var.ous delegations to the National Democratic Convention are now full, the lew 1 vacancies existing yesterday having been fllied by the selection ol substitutes. No apparent changes have occurred in the views of the dif fereiit delegations as io the most available candidate, with the exception that McClellan seems to gain strength with the New KngianJ. ; delegates. It is estimated that there are 25,000 strang ers in ibis city, who have c« me to watch the proceedings of the conventions here. The wigwam where the National Ilemo i cratic Convention is to ce held has been crowded to-day with visiters. The building erected for the special purpose is capai le of accommadating 15,(MX) persons. It is in the lorm of amphitheatre, is well lighted and ven tilated, aud neatly decorated, aud is beauti fully situated on the shore of Lake Michigtn. The delegates to the Convention will oo< upy the platform In the centre, which is capable of sealing several hundred. Political. New Yoke, Aug. 28.

It is understood that 1 Senator Sprague aud others have gone to Joii ! el, 111., to agree on a candidate to present to the new Republican convention, aud that Miuister Adams, now in England, will be the i man.

The Secretary of th9 Treasury gives notice that subscriptions will be received tor Coupon Treasury Notes, payable three yea s from August 16, 1864, with aemi annual Interest at the rateot seven and three-tenths percent per annum,—principal and in terest both to be paid in lawful money. These no'es will be convertible at the option of the holder at maturity, into aix per cent, gold bearing bonds, payable not less than five nor more than twenty years from their date, as tho Government may elect. They will be issued in denominations ol fifty, one hundred, five hundnd, one thousand, and five thousand dollars, and all subscriptions must be for fifty dollars, or some multiple of fifty dol lars. The notes will be transmitted to ths owners free ol transportation charges as soon after the receipt of the original Certificates of Deposit as they can be prepared. As the notes draw Interest from August 16, persons making deposits subsequent to that date must pay the interest accrued from date of note to date of de posit. Parties depositing twenty-five thousand dollars and upwards for these notes at any one time will be allowed a commission ot one-qnarter of one per cent., which will be paid by the Treasury Depart ment upon the receipt of a bill for the amount, cer tified to by the officer with whom the deposit was made. No deductions for commissions must be made from tbe deposits. Special Advantage* of ihia Loan. It is m Ha.tonal Savings Bank, offering a higher rate of interest than any other, and the best securi ty. Any sa rings bank which pays its depositors in U. 8. Notes, considers that it is paying in the beet circulating medium of the country, and it cannot pay in anything better, for its own assets are either in Government securities or in notes or bonds pay able in Government paper. It is equally convenient as a temprary or perma nent investment. The notes can always be sold for within a fraction of their face and accumulated in terest, and are the best security with banks as collat erals for discounts. 0 invertible into a 6 per cent. 5-20 Gold Bond. In addition to the very liberal iaterest on the notes for three years, this privilege of conversion is now worth about three per cent per annum, for the current rate for 6 30 Bonds is not le«s than nine per cent premium, and before the war the premium on six per oent. 1J. 8. stocks were over twenty percent. It will be seen that the actual profit on this loan, at the present market rate, is not less than ten percent, per annum. Its Kiemniinn Ktato at UhiiUmI Taxation. But aside from all the advantages we have enum erated, a special Act of Congress exempts all bonds and treasury notes from local taxation. On the average, this exemption is worth about two per cent, icr an mm, according to taxation in various parts of the country. It is believed that no securities offer so great in ducements to lenders as those issued by the Govern ment. In aU other forms of indebtedness, the fe*th or ability of private parties, or stock compan ies, or separate communities only, is pledged for pay ment, while the whole property of the country is held to secure the discharge of ail the obligations of the United States. While the Government offers the most liberal terms or its loans, it believes that the very strongest ap peal will be to the loyalty and patriotism of the peo ple. Subscriptions will be received by the Treasurer of the United States, at Washington, the several As sistant Treasurers and designated Depositaries, and by the First National Bank of Portland, Maine, and bvali National Banks which are Depositaries o' public money, and all respectable Banks and Bankers throughout the country will give farther information, and afford every faedity to subscribe.
