INLAND 4 ORPI;RATION ' S REPORTED
Our reporters have had an exhausting time

fires. We redraw' d our corps to that point.

from Hardock, giVing figures, time, place *and
all necessary details as to rebel entrance and
occupation,was run Awn by one of our report

Union troops'as a spy. , A fearfully perturbed
individual rushed through from Hagerstown to .
Greencastle on Friday morning, and telegraph

telegraph ts* working there, and onireporters
there were at once instructed to count the reb
els, capture them if 'net over 20,000, and bring
them to the , REPosrroity office'by the Loudon
pike. They answered that they could find no
rebels to,caPturis,•:v.tid the people indignantly
denied that the rebels occupied the place. As
seeing was belieiring, after 'a careful investiga

Individual bravery as developed in this war
has made the personal achievements of 'Astor,
pale, and it is but natural to expect that a try
ing occasion-like this should develop instance,
of rarest heroism. Capt. Hopkins, Quartet
Master at Hagerstown, made a hair-breath es
cape from capture and personal confiscation.
He was advised of the approach of the rebels tt
the Potomac, on Sunday, and he telegiaphd
here for transportation for his stores. As tht
rebel pickets reached the South side of the Pe
tomac that.evening, he resolved to elude then
by a profound "straturgie movement," as A.
\yard, Jr,, would say, and before the
could l e sent to him, he individually evacuated
HaiterUtown, and was found remotely on the
rebel flank at Shippensburg that evening. Like,
the man at the shooting-match, he saved him
self but lost his turkeys—the\ small matter of
several thousand' bushebr of grain being left
behind, and several burden cars at Hagers
town, brought away that evening, returnee

town, and twenty four heurs_after that they oc

however, may be considered safe. We hope to
hear of his promotiOn. Col. Pierce, of the l2th
Pa. Cavalry, reached this place on Thursday,
and soon disappeared. His regiment is sup

RUMORS OF THE UNION ARMIES.
It was some compensation for the absurd ru
mors of thousands'of rebels constantly advanc
ing upon us„that the reliable reports of tht.k.ad

and magnified with equal ease and earnestness.
On Friday we had pm - most_ positive informs- -
tion from a geritlemaii in Baltimore that he had

the rebels, and the same day General Burnside
was as confidently declared to be engaged with
the rebels; on the South Mountain, while Hun

REBELS AND REBEL SYMPATHISERS
Our reporter len on Saturday morning. He
Nitnessed the whole rebel movements in Ha
4erstown. 1-fe was present lit soveralconVer-
+ations between Gen. McCausland add one Of
she citizens. The spokesman of the etinneil
tnd citizens was Colonel Schley, aided by
Sir. Seyster and aoriral others who occupy a
conservative position—so conservative itMoisi
that they lean a little over perpendicular' on
the rebel aide. When the demand was made
for $20,0J0, Messrs Schley and Seys',er call
ed upon General McCausland and declared
their inability to raise tho 'money and clothing.
rho insurgent chief—a fierce, middle-sized man.
with red, bushy whiskers—answered them in
the following rather emphatic than poetical
manner— By Jesus Christ if you don't hare
the money and clothing by 81 o'clock this even
mg I. will burn every house in town if it costs
me my own life and that of all my command!"
Schley was almost equally emphatic in return
• ing compliments with tho rebel chief. He inti
i mated that ho Was a thief and a free-hooter
but it did not disturb the guerilla's equanimity
i• nor lessen his taste for plunder. The demand
! - ivas for 1,5t0 suits of clothing in addition to
; but the clothing could not be found.
i' The rebel General was inexorable, and whether
the clothing was there or not, he must have it.
Finally all the clothing that could be found was
gathered up—indudilig children's shoes and
manyother articles entirely useless to the army,
and when about everything wllB got that could
,be found,. the "southern brethren" of "My
Maryland " were content. It was remarkable
!that they made, no discrimination between rc
!'belaympathisers and Union men. Mr. Bell, a
Druggist. who has a brother in the rebel army,
and who is said to lean that way himself hail
his stock "confiscated" in tbe most approved
freebooter's style ; and when a reb'el sympa-:
thiser expostulated with them for robbing their
i friends—one who had a brother in their service.
—they politely ansWerett that if Mr. Bell was:
their friend he should be with his brother
their army. The rebel sympathisers generally!
were very indignant at -the indiscrimipate pro•,
pensititui for stealingananifested by their consti n
tutional friends, and curses loud and deep might
have been heard on every corner froM the dis
nipointed'and humiliated allies; of treason. A
special committee of the right shade called on
Gen. McCausland to remonstrate about some
order be liad issued, and he dismissed them sum
;Warily by saying that as they could Send thre6
Abolition Delegates to Autitipolis, they could
certainly comply with any reasonable dettand
made by the reboil - I'. Many of the fiercest rebel
sympathisers openly declare that they hope
, Gen. McCausland may receive the first Yankee ,
bullet that is fired into his command. Alto ,
gether secesh is by ho means pleased with se.
cession. It is rumorefl that they levied 'on Mid'.
Motown for 5,000 lbs. of bacon ; on Boonslioro
I fur 1 , 000 and on Frederick for $200,000.
