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 SARUPATUILI. It cleanses and renovates the blood, in 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.

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 tomac. 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.

As soon as it was discovered that the rebels had made a hasty retreat during the night, our army was ordered to move at once, and as we heard considerable firing in the direction of Harper's Ferry, it was hoped our men had caught up with them.

Banks' army corps, composed of the 124th, 125th, 128th and 46th Pennsylvania Regiments, and also the 28th New York and 6th Connecticut. The Colonel has made several miraculous es capes. He came near beingkilled in the seven day's fight, and last Wednesday a portion of a shell passed so clOsely by his leg that it burned the leather off his boots. He is a brave officer and deserves promotion. Col. Kn . lpe saved the battery of Captain Thomas, which was being captured by the rebels. The Colonel discovered the intentions of the rebels, and his own regiment beihg so much cut up he took.the colors of his regiment and seeing the 107th New York regiment with out colors, he took command of that body of men and thus saved the battery. Lieut. Col. Selfridge is now acting Colonel of the 128th in place of. Col. Crossdale who was killed. The old 46th is consolidated with it and commanded by the above officer. THE BEEKLE HEMS THE POTONA.O. Five o'clock P. Y. I have just ascertained that the rebels crossed the Potomac at dharps burg early this morning and that General M'Clellan is close upon their heels.

Great disap pointment is felt, however, at his escape but we must not expect too much from one battle. The rebels entered Maryland with a view of gaining a large number of recruits, and they expected also a general uprising of the psoPle. In all this they were mistaken, and they have paid dearly for the attempt. RINNSYLVANLIL SAIFIS Tall UNION There is no use disguising the fact that Pennsylvania has saved the Union from utter destruction. As soon ae it was prociaimedthat Pennsylvania was to be invaded, nearly- one hundred thousand men forsook their homes, business, and all that was near and dear to them for the purpose of defending her borders from invasion. If Pennsylvania had not sent her immense army to this point, the rebels would have most assuredly made this State the battle,ground, and carried ruin and desolation tots citizens. Gov. Curtin deserves great credit y in raising this immense army for her defence in so short a time. Your own county, Dauphin, has also played a moat conspicuous part. It recruited tbeilrat regiment for duty, and her cavalry has rendered invaluable services. These men have been in the saddle day and night, and perfamed duties that could not hive been bet ter evaded by men. in the army for years, whilaat the same time • they have undergone many hardships. ItialTßX OF PRIINSYLVANLANS. Gest. Reynolds issued an order this morning that the Pennsylirania militia should return to its own border. They will be encamped at Greencastle for a few days, after which they will return hone. The Marylanders, feel greatly indebted to Pennsylvania for rescuing this state from en tire destruction. The ,governor had his Headquarters in a pri vate:bin:we in this borough, where he is again ed la his arduous duties by General Wright and others. • Wm. r.

They re ceived no reply, however, and believing that no rebels were near, attempted to cross.— They had scarcely, however, got to the edge of the river, when the rebels appeared on a high bank with artillery and musketry, and slang tered our forces in their defenceless position. The report goes that over one half of the brave Pennsylvanians were either killed or wounded. The Colonel Is also severely, but we hope not dangerously, wounded. The mistake, if we may call it such, was a most terrible one, and has desolated the homes of many Pennsylvanians. ASEIVAI. Or THI GOVINBIOB. The Governor, with a few invited friends, arrived here about. eleven o'clock this morn ing, on official business, and to our agreeable surprise, he was met at the cars by, Clement O.

He is well supplied with the necessary articles for the disabled *Adieus. He is, indeed, an an gel of mercy, and we hope he will receive his reward, if not in this, in another world.

BY TROUPE From our Morning Edition From Gen. M'Clellan's Army THE RETREAT OF REBELS. TREY CROSS THE POTOMAC AT SHARPSBIIRG. The Purimit of the Federal Army. DAMES Of DAIMON AND PRISONERS• Part!cobra of the late it opgemeete maiseugier : BATTU FULD ON AIITINCAM, September 20. 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 been represented. 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, was cer 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 frum a fire under which they would have other wise been compelled to fall back.

Three line of battles had been formed from a point west of the Hagerstown turnpike acres the road and several fields to near the Boonaboro turnpike, at a distance of about a half a mile, and these lines were almost distinct, as where the living mass found them. The dead were lying so close as to be nearly within reach of one anothers hands along the entire distance, while in many places they lay one upon an other. The enemy at this point were attacked by King's, Rickett's and Sedgwiek's divisions, and the rebels, although maintaining their ground fora time were compelled to give way, their lots being frightfully large. Duryea's brigade which opened this attack, lost about half its force, but maintained it until relieved by fresh troops. Its loss inoliicers was 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 limbs. 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 AlßicaardlitiftLefirrilftl66Wiffhria 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.
