NOT a few of the worst disorders that
afflict mankind arise from the corruption that sio
cumulates in the blood. Of ail the disooveries that
have been made to purge it out, none have been found
which could equal in enact A nus's COMPOUND Exmoor or

stills the vigor of health into the system and purges out
the humor which make dimes:A+. It stimulates the
healthy Iw:rations of the body and expels the disorders
that grow and ranele in the blood. Ls extraordinary
virtues are not yet widelyvknown, but when they are it
will no longer be a question what remedy to employ in
the great variety of afflicting diseases that require an
alterative remedy. Such a remedy, that could be relied
on, has long been sought for, and now, for the first time,
the public have one on which they can depend. Our
space here does not admit certificates to show its effects.
But the trial of a single bottle will show to the sick
that it has virtues surpassing anythmg they have ever
taken. Sufferers from Scrofula, Scrofulous Swellings

"INDEPENDENT IN ALL THINGS-NEUTRAL IN NONE-"
HARRISBURG, PA., MONDAY AFTERNOON, SEPTEMBER 22, 1862
Orders have been telegraphed to the various
military headquarters throught the State, to
the effect, that the militia companies now
organizing in the different localities need not
march to Harrisburg, as the exigencies which
first made it necessary to call the militia, have
been entirely surmounted, and all danger of
invention passed. The militia throughout the
State, will, however, maintain their organiza
tions, drill as usual, and in all things perfect
their military knowledge and discipline, await
ing thus for marching orders and in constant
readiness to answer a summons of the Governor.
The fact that the rebel army is in full retreat
down the Shenandoah valley, has of course
secured the authorities of Maryland and
Pennsylvania from all farther action on
the subject of invasion. So far as this is con•
corned the demonstrations of the past week
will have more influence to prevent invasion,
than any force the federal government could
possibly throw along either bank of the Po
A people so prompt in action, and so energetic
in their own defence, need not fear any present
danger or any future attempt of our foe to in
vade their soil to attack their homes.
Information received here by telegraph from
Boonsboro', says that the Corn Exchange Regi
ment attempted to cross the Potomac at Shep
pardtown on Friday night, and met the enemy
in considerable numbers. The Corn Exchange
Regiment was repulsed with considerable loss,
and Col. Prevost was badly wounded.
We also learn that while the rebels were
crossing the Potomac at this point, they lost
from fifteen hundred to two thousand- men by
drowning. Their army is now a complete
wreck. It marches without order, and accounts
from stragglers indicate that its passage down
the Shenandoah Valley is llttarally a raid of
destruction and devastation onall that is within
its reach, made desperate by defeat, and per
fectly wild from starvation,the rebels are wreak
ing their revenge on their friends, considering
in their wild rage, that friend and foe are now
alike their proper victim.

In all this they were mistaken, and they have

BATTU FULD ON AIITINCAM,
Yesterday our lines advanced toward the en
emy, when the discovery was made that the
entire rebel army had retreated during the
night, leaving their pickets along the entire
line, so as to prevent us from gaining a knowl
edge of their movements until they had ac
complished their purpose. These left behind
to perform this duty, generally surrendered as
soon as skirmshers appeared.
It seems from the statements of the residents
of Sharpsburg and its vicinity, and that rebel
reinforcements were expected on Friday, bat
they did not arrive, and consequently it was
decided to cross the river as they were in no
condition to stand another such battle as that
of the 17th inst., so they commenced, leaving
at dark on Thursday night, and the rear of the
line passed through Eilluerpsburgjast before day
light yesterday morning.
They crossed the river at different points in
the vicinity of Sharreburg es there are several
fords within two miles, though the contrary has
Our cavalry started in pursuit as soon as the
retreat was discovered but beyond capturing a
few hundred stragglers they sucoeeded in in
fileting upon the enemy but little injury.
About a mile from the river quite a contest
took place 'between a part of Gen. Porter's
corps, which were in the advance, and the
enemy, for the possession of two guns, which
they seemed unable to move fast enough
They were finally compelled to abandon them,
one of which they spiked.
Their trains have all got off notwithstanding
it is said, their horses were completely worn
out. They seem to have taken a position on
the other side of the Potomac, but they did
not reply to our guns this morning with the
exception of three or four shots.
An attempt was made to cross and flank them
but they were in too good position to be at
tempted with success.
♦ Union man named Hughes, came in from
Williamsport this 'afternoon, and reports that a
large force of the enemy had re crowed the river
at that place, but he could not say how many.
For fear he might be caught he left in haste,
and therefore did not coon/them.
He said at least 2,000 oavalry and 1,000
infantry were on this side and the column was
still crossing over, the rear not being visible.
According to another report it was only a
small party sent over to forage the oountry and
harass the inhabitants. With this exception,
the soil of biarylaud is free from the invaders,
a result which all expected at an early day,
though few thought such a thing poestble be
fore another great battle.
The retreat Of an army so large as that of the
rebate in the face of cue like our own,
tainly creditable to its commanders ' especially
when it is considered they met with but slight
loss while it was being consummated. One
thing, however, welch was in their favor
which was they, had the Antietam in
their front, about half the lenAth of the
their lines over which our troops could cross
only at one point.' it was at this bridge that
Pleasonton's cnvalry made such a splendid
dash across in face of a Are from several batte
ries planted to sweep it from difierent points,
and which rained a perfect shower of shell upon
it while our troops were crossing, most of which,
fortunately, did not explode.
As soon as the cavalry crossed, they were 641 "
lowed by Sykes' regulars in support of three
batteries, Tidball's, Gibson's and Robinson's,
which, alter getting into position silenced the
tebels at this point and relieved Sumner's Corps

as follows :
Capt. Kelly, of the 104 N. J., Lieut. Buckley
of the 104th N. Y., killed, and Lieut. Col. Ca
rroll, Capt. Bradley, Major Shedd and Lieut.
Doolittle, of 104th, and Capt. Tuttle, Lieut.
DeLamle of 97th, wounded.
This brigade lost 482 in killed and wounded
out of about 850 who went into the action.
The enemy's loss in killed at this part of the
field was at least two to one, and many are of
the opinion that it would average the same all
over the battle ground.
This is accounted f.r by the fact that our
men fire high while the rebels seem to be par
ticularly instructed to fire low. The prisoner@
say they always like to meet a regiment of
Zouaves with red trowsers, as these scrim as
distinctive marks. In evidence of this take the
casualties of the 14th Brooklyn and the 6th
N. Y. regiments, three fourths of the casualties
among them in every battle being in the lower
At a piece of woods some distance west of the
place mentioned above, where they made a
stand after being driven back, Gorman's bri•
gade of Sedgwick's division suffered heavy low
baying 894 killed, and wounded—about half
their entire number.
One regiment, the 16th Mass., bad 600 going
to the fight, and were able to uster only 2013
after they came out of it.
The officers, killed and wounded, in this reg
iment are, C apt. C. S. Simonds, Lieut. B Der
by, Lieut. F. S. Corbin killtd ; Lieut. W. Gale,
Lieut. B. Ellingwood, Capt. W. Fireband Lt.
S. J Spurr, Capt. Bartlett, Capt. J. 0 Celyn,
and Lieut. H. J. Brady, all slightly wounded.
The Division succeeded in driving the enemy
from the woods, and held it for more than an
hour, but were finally compelled to abandon it
and fall back. Tbla is the only part of the field
once gained from which our troops were forced
to retire. Those who fell at this spot were
found stripped of their clothing by the rebels,
some bodies being entirely naked.
At a point near the centre, near the church,
in the centre of the battle fields, a Major, two
Lieutenants and three privates werefound dead,
having been tont to -pktors by n obeli. The
about 600 of their wounded at houses and
barns where they had established hospitals, and
very few of their dead were buried, excepting
officers, their graves being found in the corn
fields in the rear of their lines.
A large number of their wounded were
brought off the field in our ambulances, and
cared for by our surgeons. At one of their
hospitals some of our wounded had been taken
and the officers in charge having forgotten to
parole them, a brigadier General returned on
Friday morning to de so and had just gone a
few minutes when alavalry man appeared who
gave chase, firing the contents of his revolver
at the flying rebel but without effect.
The loss of the rebels in.this battle was very
heavy, and evidently exceeded ours.
A wounded soldier, of the god North Caroli
na, said his regiment left Richmond a month
ago 700 strong, and on Thursdar morning
could muster only 220.
A negro who was captured and .who knows
Jackson well, states that he saw hint with his
arm in a sling on Friday upon the field.
Gen. Stark was killed.
One of the prisoners states that General Joe
Johnson died recently in Richmond of the
wounds received at Fair Oaks.
