The im pression seemed to prevail among the soldiers that when they did move they-w ould proceed into Western Virginia, crossing at Williams port. The enemy, he says, will undoubtedly dispute the crossing here, and when General McClellan orders a forward movement a battle will no doubt take place at that point. This gentleman dined at a house in Hagerstown where Gen. Lee and stall'had made their head quarters. Tlie lady of the house says she heard Lee instruct bis otlicers to see that no depredations were committed by the soldiers while in Maryland, but when they entered Pennsylvania they might pillage ainl destroy everything on their route.

Remarks of Messrs. Lincoln, Chase and Clay. Washington, Sept, 24. A large crowd assembled at the Executive mansion to-night on the occasion of a serenade to President Lincoln. Having beeu cheered and called for, lie nppeared at an upper win dow. and spoke as follows: Fellow-citizens—1 appear before you to do little more than acknowledge the courtesy you pay me, and to thank you for it. 1 have not been distinctly informed why it is on this oc casion you appear to do me this honor, though 1 suppose—interruptions—("Its because of the proclamation"—cries of "good,” and ap plause). I was about to say 1 suppose I un derstand it. (Laughter—Voice, “That you do; you thoroughly understand it.”) What I did 1 did after very full deliberation and under a very heavy and solemn sense of responsibili ty. (Cries of "Good, God bless you,” and ap plause.) 1 can only trust in God. 1 have made no mistake. (Cries “No mistake; all right; you’re made no mistake yet; go ahead, your right.”) 1 shall make no attempt on this occasion to sustain what I have done or said by any comment. (Voices, “That’s un necessary;” “We understand it.”) It is now for tlie country and world to pass judgment on it, and may lie to take action upon it. I will say no more upon this subject. In my posi tion I am environed with difficulties. A voice, “That’s so.”) Yet they are scarcely so great as the dillicultics of those who upon the battle-field are endeavoring to purchase with their blood and their lives the future happiness and prosperity of this country. (Applause, long continued.) _Let us never forget that on the 14th and 17th days of this present month there have been battles bravely, skillfully and successtully fought. (Applause.) We do not yet know the particulars. Let us be sure that in giving praise to particular individuals, we do no in justice to others. I only ask you at the con clusion of these few remarks to remember to give three hearty cheers to all good and brave otlieers; men who fought those successful battles. Cheer after cheer was given when the Pres ident bade them good-niggt and withdrew. The procession then removed to the resi '•' **v« «»» \ uiisc. .aiu i in uig cuvcrcu he appeared upon tlie stops. Several voices called tor gaslight, to which request lie said he was afraid all the light the assembly could have this evening would lie the light reflected from the great act of the President. (Cheers.) He understood they had just paid their respects to tlie Chief Magistrate ol'the Republic, and to thank him for having isued a proclamation Which will find a response in the hearts of the American people. No one, he said, can rejoice more since we rely in the belief that the judgement you have expressed w ill ho the judgement of the entire people of tlie 1’. S. (Cries of “yes,” and ap plause.) 1 am better accustomed to work than to speak. 1 love acts better than words.— (Voices—“That’s so; that you do you’ve shown.) Hut Dothing lias given me more sin cere pleasure than to say amen to this last great act of the Chief Magistrate. (To tlie amen there was a warm and spontaneous response by tlie crowd.) It is tlie dawn of a new era. and although the act was performed from an imperative sense of duty, qualified by a military emergency which gave him power to perform it. it is nevertheless, though bap tised in blood, an act of humanity and justice. Latest generations will celebrate it. (A voice —“The whole world.”) Yes, said Secretary Chase, the whole world will pay honor to the Ilian w ho executed it. If it were necessary to say another word, it is this: The tims has come when all jealousies and divisoos, all Ms sotialisms and aspirations should lie banished, so that united we may all stand tlie integrity of the republic. Let him have the most of our approbation and applause, and confidence who does the most, whether in the Held or in the cabinet, for their country. Dismissing all the past, let us look to the future, ati'd hence forth let there lie no dissensions. Let u« do nothing hut work for the country, which (iod in his providence lias called u|k>ii us to do. The above is merely tlie substance of the Secretary’s remarks, which ware applauded throughout. Cassius M. Clay was the next speaker. In tlie course of his remarks he expressed his thankfulness that the time had come when the line had lieen unmistakably drawn lietween freedom ami slavery; ami when the principles declared in ’70 were baldly enunciated, the right was always expedient,and hence he was gratified licyond utterance in the assurance of the President's proclamation. The mail who did not stand by it was a traitor; for the first time there was a proclamation in behalf of the down trodden humanity. It would Hud its way all over the South, everywhere liberating all the oppressed of lx it 11 races in this country. He anticipated good effects trom it in Eu rope, for no man there dare stand up in de fence of slavery; but to make the proclamation ftTi'l’ti VI* U’P llllist -ill u-nrL- Itv tituimiune nf nnr armies now contending against an aristocracy which linds sympathy in Europe among those who hate a Itcpuhlicnn government. In the conclusion of his remarks, which were some what prolonged, he united in the prayer of Horace Greeley, “God bless Abraham Lin coln.” Attorney General Bates was also the recipient of a serenade. He made a few re marks expressive of his thanks for tlie compli ment bestowed. Meeting of Loyal Governors. Altoona, Pa., Sept. 24.
