Army of thh Potomac, Frederick, Md., June ifct, 1HC.?GtvercJ Oix^riiy //?. fi.5 ?In conformity with the orders of the "War Department, dated June 27, 1?63, 1 relin quish the command of the Army of the Poto mac. It is transferred to Major Gen. George E. Meade, a brave and accomplished officer, who has nobly earned the confidence and es teem ol the army on many a well-fought field, lmpieseed with the belief that my usefulness as commander of the Army of the Potomac is impaired, I part from it, yet not without the deepest emotion. The sorrow of parting with the comrades of so many battles is relieved by the conviction that the courage and devotion of this army will never cease or fail; that it will yield to my successor, as it has to me, a willing and hearty support. With the earnest prayer that the trinmph of its arms may bring successes worthy of it and the nation, I bid it farewell. J#szrH Hookbk, Major General. S. F. Barhtow, Acting Adjutant General. Al'DRKPf OF VKl>'IEAI< KKAPK OH TAEIItt OOM HAXU?r THE ARMY OF THE FOTOMAC. This order was J-.dlowcd by the subjoined address fiom General Mw.de: Hkaihjtartek* Army of cqi Potomao, June 2>-rlHi3.?6v>*raJ Or?i?r, Js'o. (id.?By di rection of the President of the United State*, I hereby assume command of the Army of ih* Potomac. As a soldier, in obeyiug this order, an order totally unexpected and unsolicited, I have no promises or pledges to make. The country looks to this army to relieve it from the devastation and disgrace of hostile inva sion. Whatever fatigues and sacrifices we may be called upon to undergo, let us have in view constantly the magnitude of the Interest* in volved, and let each man determine to do his duty, leaving to an all-controlling Providence the decision of the contest. It is with just dif fidence that I relieve in command of this army an eminent and accomplished soldier, whose name must ever appear conspicuous in the history of its achievements; but 1 r?5ly upon the hearty support of my companions in arms to assist me in the discharge of the important trust which lias been confided to me. Gkoroe G. Mkade, MajorGen'l(3omd*g. S. F. Bau8TOW, Assistant Adj't General. The correspondent of the New York Herald says: Nothing could have exceeded the surprise, occasioned by this announcement. The first rumors of the change were scariiely credited, aud it was not until the appearance of the fire well address of Gen. Hooker that the report was generally believd. The reason lor the change of commanders are yet unknown; it is believed, and indeed in dicated in the brief remarks of Gen. Hooker to his stall", that he had applied to Gen. Halleck to be relieved from the command of the army of the I'otomac. We are yet in the dark, how ever, so far as the knowledge of G?n. Hooker's reasons lor making such an application are concerned, and can only await the develop ment of events from headquarters. The report of the cnange soon extended to the several corps, and their commander- hastened to bid farewell to the General. By threeo'clock a large number of officers had assembled, and soon aiter Gen. Hooker appeared in the avenue before his tent. Some time was spent in social intercourse, and to the last all formalities were dispensed with. The parting was painful to ev ry one, particularly to tho.-e who had be come eudeareu to the General by old associa tions, and not a few felt their eyes moisten as they took the parting hand. General Hooker was deeply grieved. He had beeu identified with the army of the Potomac, he said, sin? ? its organization, audnatfrhoped to continue with it to the end. It is the best army ol the country, worthy ol the confidence of'the nation, and could not fail of success in the ap proaching struggle. He sjiokeof his successor as a glorious soldier, and urged all to give him then earnest support. At the coucl usion of the leave taking the more prominent officers lingered at the General s tent, and spent the evening in reviewing the pleasant reminiscences of the past, and th? plans for the future campaign. General Hooker leaves to-morrow lor Balti more, to which place he has been ordered to report. His personal stair, including General Buttei field, will accompany him. The officers ol the several departments at headquarters will doubtless remain. General Meade was totally surprised by tha order appointing him commander of the armv of the Potomac, and deeply felt the weight of responsibility resting upon him. His appoint ment gives universal satisfaction, and all ex press a determination to extend their heartiest co-operation. Attairs on the Upper I'otomac are reported quiet. The enemy lias but a small force south of Hageistown, and our forces remain in the undisturbed possession of South Mountain. A rebel cavalry force is reported to have crossed the Potomac below Edward's Ferry, and captured a train ol one hundred aud fifty wagons. Captain Harry Page, Assistant Quartermaster at headquarters, had charge of the train, and is probably a prisoner. The mail wa^on, with mails from he;idquarters, had leit for Washington, but received timely infor mation of the raid and returned. Thio morning one of the wagons in the ammunition train blew up, but fortunately without doing any damage to the rest of the train. General Pleasanton has been appointed major general, and placed in command of the ?a\ airy forces. General Stahl is ordered to report for duty with another command in Pennsylvania. All quiet. ARMY OF THE CUMBERLAND. Details of its Advance?Several Battles With the Enemy?A Whole Rebel Di vision Routed. St. Loi'ih, June 20.?The Republican's spe cial, dated Headquarters Army of the Cumber land, Beach Grove, eighteen miles south of Jiiurfi eesboro, says: A forward movement of Gen. Rosecrans's army commenced on the 21th. Continued heavy rains made the movements slow,butthey have been satisfactory. All the enemy's forces opposed to our ad vance have been pushed back with severe punishment. Col. Wilder's mounted infantry had a severe skirmish at Horer's Gap on the 21th, driving a superior force of infantry, and inflicting a loss of several hundred 111 killed and wounded, while our loss was only forty or fifty. Gen. Willich's brigade, the advance of Gen. McCook's corps, drove two regiments of in fantry and a battery of artillery from a strong position at Liberty Gap, 13 miles south of Murfreesboro, on tlie *24th, suffering a loss of 50. On the afternoon of the 25th a fight occurred at the same place between a rebel division under General Claybnrn and Generals Wil lich's, Wilder's and Carter's brigades.' After mi hour's action the enemy was completely routed, leavingtheirdead, pavt of the wounded, and some prisoners in our hands. Our loss is fifty killed and one hundred wounded, inclu ding fourteen officers. General Mitchell's cavalry routed a body of rebels on the Shelby ville pike on the 23d. The troops are in high spirits, and eager to meet the enemy. The plan of the rebels is not developed, but the indications are they will not give battle this side of Duck river. Onr advance arrived at Manchester on tne 27th. Prisoners say that General CI ay burr killed in the fight at Liberty Gap..*"" Bragg reviewed the troops there a few hours before the fight, and that Generals Hardee and Stewart witnessed the engagement.

Nf.iv York, June 29.?A special di? patch ?o the Times, dated Harrisburg, says throughout the day our forces; held a position beyond the Harrisburg fortifications, in anticipation of Uie enemy's Advance. The rebels have v.^t -'.own any Inclination to mnke an attack This morn i ing a few shot* ?were exchanged lytwwn the , rebels and onr pickets, and subsequently our ! men approached with mounted gnus, in order j to *et the range. | Opinion is gaining credence that the rehe.U : are maneuvering to take Harrisburg by a flank movement. The report that they have a pontoon trf.in twelve miles this side of Columbia is, however, somewhat doubted. It has been agreed that the Court-house bell shall be the signal for the men to assemble at the bridge and place themselves under military orders. - A gentleman who just escaped from the rebel lines at Chambersburr, rt?i>ortt the r?bel col umn moving eastward to the number of 37,t*X:, accompanied by- 104 pieces ol artillery. Thirty three prisoners were captnrvd at Mount Union and brought into town this morning. General Stahl ha* been appointed commander ol the cavalry forces in this Department. It was confidently believed this morning that the enemy would commence the attack to-day. In all probability to-morrow or next day will develop his intended movement. Possibly L<ee 1 may contemplate the capture of Baltimore, and consider Harrisburg ol secondary importance. A proclamation has been issued by Major Rodenfort appealing to patriotic citizen* to respond with proper spirit to the following letter from the Major General commanding. He says, let every man willing to cross the river report himself as soon as possible at ray office this evening: Hraiktarterr Department or rap.Sufi viUEBAMTA, June 29.?Sir: The Major General Commanding requests you to forward three hundred men to work on the defenses of Har rlsburg. They will report to Caplain Wheeler, Chief of Engineers of this Department, on the south side of the Susquehanna River. It is hoped that citizens will respond at once to this call. Tbe time has arrived lor action. Very respectfully, your ob't servant, JOUK S. SEl'ULKI, Major and Assistant Adjutant G-en'l. New York, Jdne 29.? A special dispatch from Harrisburg to the ?? World" says, u report was afloat that Ewell, whose force is over 75,000, is withdrawing in the direction ol York. It looks as if the whole rebel army mean: K> operate mainly against Baltimore. Volunteering all over the State promises well. If Ewell attacks Harrisburg, it will be by a flank movement probably, unless the river w too swollen. Fugitives from over the river are constantly arriving, mostly able-bodied men, who leave their families behind. A rebel spy was captured at Reading about seven o'clock. The change in the commtnd of the army of the Potomac is almost universally liked. The Northern Central and Baltimore and Ohio Railroads. Baltimore, June 29.?Captain Irwin, Presi dent. of the Western Maryland Railroad lett Westminster at half-past three o'clock this af ternoon, and armed here to-night. He posi tively reports no rebels seen or heard of near the vicinity of the railroad, or anywhere along the route. The cars from Baltimore to Frederick this morning, were obliged to return after reaching Sykeaville, where a strong force ol rebel cav alry were seen on the road tearing up the track and burning tlie bridges. The train narrowly escaped capture. Frederick Scliley, collector of Frederick, was a passenger, aim gives me the above information. A squad of rebel guerrilas to-day cap;ured Doctor Goldtborougli, surgeon in the army, and took his baggie and horse. A large number of horsey werestoieu by them in Baltimore county, twenty or thirty nuies Irom Baltimore. At the call of Mayor Chapman, the Union citi/ens held meetings in all thu wards this ..f urnoou to prepare for defence. The meetings were fully attended. Tlie Northern Central road continues run ning to Parkton, thirty miles out. Tha tele graph to Frederick is not working beyond Sykesville. Tlie Rebels Along the Line of the Baiti more ami Ohio Kailroad. Baltimore, June 2!).?The rebels appeared thi? morning at an early hour four miles be yond Mariotisville, and tore up the track. About eleven o'clock another small force ap peared at Sykesville, thirty-one miles from Baltimore and destroyed the track. A rebel cavalry lorce camped last night at Sandy Spring, Montgomery county, and sent out. scouting parties, which are supposed to t>e the same which appeared at the points above men tioned. The Washington road is as yet unmolested. THE SIEGE OF VKKSRIRU. Everything Progressing Favorably?John ston's Movements a Mystery?Federal Prisoners raptured at Milliken's I!rnd Hiin^?Retaliatory Measures to he Taken Memphis, June 2G, via Cairo, June 29.? Advices from Gen. Grant's army up to noon of the '?2d inst., says the siege is progressing vigorously. On the 20th cannonading was kept up lrom morning till noon by the army and navy, but elicited no reply. A large number of buildings was destroyed, but beyond that it was not ascertained that much damage was done. Deserters report that the Teunessee and Georgia troops are much dissatisfied, and talk of refusing to fight longer. Johnston's movements are still wrapped in mystery. He was last reported moving South. His forces have all been withdrawn beyond the Big Black. Gen. Taylor is said to ha ve hung all the Fed eral prisoners taken at Milliken's Bend. Re taliatory measures will probably follow. Very heavy rains have fallen in the vicinity. All the streams are overflowing, and very few movements ou either side are made. John Park, Conservative, was elected Mayor of Memphis yesterday. [SECOND PISFATVH.] WaLNCTT HlLI., NEAR VlCKSBCRU, Julie 23.? The rebels are in front of Sherman on our left. They came out of the works Monday night and temporarily drove our pickets from the rifle pits, but were driven back by our batteries. It is thought they are feeling their way to eat oat or 6end messengers in the melee. There has been considerable firing along the lines to-day. Siege guns are arriving in large numbers. Ambulances were sent out for onr wounded towards Jackson on Sunday. On the return to Big Black, the bridges having been burned, they turned back at Edwards's Station. No rebel camp nearer than that point. FROM TENNESSEE. A Skirmish Between our Advance and the Rebels. Cincinnati, June29.?A Murfreesboro dis patch dated 2Hth inst., says:?In a skirmish on the 24th and 25th inst., at Guy's Gap, between an advance of McCook's force and a rebel brigade, our loss was 225 in killed and wound ed, including Capt.
