FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC.
All Qnlet the 2Sth ?Onr Leases in
Thursday'* Fight ? An Escape frem
Petersburg?The Rebel Leaders Desper
ate by Reason ef the Failure ef Their
lavasioa Scheme to Draw Grant1! Army*
[Correspondence of the Associated Press.]
A letter from the Army of the Potomac
dated August 28th, evening, says to-day not a
gun was fired from daylight to dark- and up to
this hour, 9 p. m., there have been very few re
ports. It was the most quiet day we have had
in four weeks.
Our loes in Thursday's fight is ascertained
to be about 2,000 men in the aggregate and nine
guna?fonr of Brown's Rhode Island, four of
Sleeper's Massachusetts and one of McKnight'a
battery of light artillery.
Tb? statement is made by request, that it
was the 107th Pennsylvania Veteran Volnn
1eer Infantry instead of the I04th New York,
as reported in some of the newspapers, which
captured the battle-flag of the 18th North Caro
lina in the fight of the liJth, and the party who
made tbe prize was tbe color-bearer of the
regiment, private Hnttenstein. of Company C.
An English gentleman, Edwin Wallace,
swam the Appomattox last night and escaped
to onr lines. He has resided in Petersburg
since the war began, and represents the pros
pects of the Confederacy as becoming more
gloomy than ever. The leaders are rendered
desperate because of the miscarriage of their
scheme to draw General Graut hence by in
vading Pennsylvania
Mr. Wallace lost his wife and child in Peters
burg, a short time ago. They were killed by
the explosion of one of our shells, which en
tered his bouse.
Three deserters also got in last night. They
state that they were paid off and discharged a
short time ago frpm Col. Crawford's (Union)
Third Tennessee, hundred day's regiment,
and while on their way home, were captured,
with seventeen others, by General Well?r's
cavalry, and forced into the rebel rank?, after
being robbed of all their money and clothing.
They have no idea of what became of the other
seventeen. They were separated at Lynch
burg, whither they were bronght from the
place of tLeir capture in irons. They seem
very indignant at the treatment they have re
ceived, and were anxious to take the oath of
allegiance.
FROM THE FRONT.
The mail steamer Dictator arrived here this
morning at 6X o'clock from City Point. She
reports all quiet since the fight at Reams' Sta
tion up to the hour at which she left, (yester
day morning at 10 o'clock,) with the exception
of the usual picket firing and an occasional
artillery duel.
On Sunday an attack on our pontoon bridge
on tbe Arpomattox, at Broadway Landing,
was anticipated. Two brigades of colored
troops and several batteries were dispatched
to that point on a double-quick, but no rebels
made tbeir appearance.
The Dictator bronght np the .1th andGth New
Jersey regiments, their term of service having
expired. These men have seen hard service,
and are much reduced in numbers.
RATHER BK HUNtt THAN GO WITH TI1K
REBELS.
We hear that during the late visit of tbe rebels
to Hagerstown, Md., they proceeded to the
county jail and released therefrom Park Cra
mer, who was confined there for deliberately
shooting Victor Wright during a quarrel be
tween the parties aftout a woman kept by the
latter. When the rebels left Hager&town they
took Cramer with them, bnt on reaching Wil
liamson he deserted them and returned to
Hagerstowa, where he presented himself at
the jail to tbe county sheriff and asked to be re
committed, asserting that he weuld " be d?d
if he would go with snch a set of infernal cut
throats " Cramer was accordingly assigned
to his old quarters, and In November will be
tried upon tte charge of murder.
FROM ALBEMARLE SOUND.
Tbe U. S. steamer Tacony, Capt. Tnxton, ar
rived yesterday at the Navy Yard from Albe
marle Sound, N. C., where she has been on
duty for the past six months. She brings no
special new? from that quarter. The Rebel
Ram Albemarle keeps ontcf sight and danger,
but our boats are fully prepared should she
sbow herfelf. Some of them since the encoun

which to meet ner.
Among her officers is Ensign Somers, who

captured by the Retiels near the mouth of the
Rappahannock, and who was badly wounded
while resisting the enemy.

RETREAT OF OEM. EARLY.
Pursuit by e?a. Sheridan?The But
Overtaken?Cavalry Skirmishing.
[Despatch to Philadelphia Inquiiw.]
Hibfu'b Fkrky, Aug. 29 ?The advance of
Oen. S&eridan yeeterday was with nearty nu
entiie force, the reconnoisgancea of j?turaay
afternoon having demonstrated that the enemy
had retired from his front -
He m&de immediate preparation for follow
ing them, aad the march began ?*
Sunday morning. The iQlMl{jy awtStroad
Wright, Crook and Emory took the ' "*
to CDarlestown from our positioniat H^ltown,
&cd the cavalry under Oen. Torbert pursuing
seB?eS! roads leading -outbwestwardly from
t^hepherdstown, but all converging towards
^The'march during the entire day was slow
and cautious, a strong skirmifch line being all
the time displayed, and both flanks kept well
covered, but none of the enemy were met with
until late in the afternoon, when, having over
taken his rear guard just beyond Uh^tlestown,
on the Smitbfleld road, some li-tie skirmishing
Fussed, but nothing of any moment. Some
few prisoners being taken, it was ascertained
tnat Early s main force hail retired on the
Smitbfleld road, and that he had halted for the
nip?bt at that hamlet. General Sheridan con
sequently ordered a halt two miles beyond
Charlestown and camped for the night.
In the meantime General Torbert, moving in
the name general direction, upon roads to the
right ot Sheridan, encountered the enemy s
cavalry at Hunker Hill, and a sharp fltfht en
sued, the particulars of which have not yet
come in, hnt the advantage remained witn
Torbert. This morning, up to 11 o'clock a. m.,
all was quiet in front. General Sheridan re
maining in the position assumed last night, and
the enemy is still understood to beatt>mith
fleld. . ...
Rumors were enrrent in our camp this morn
ing that Early had been ordered to Richmond
with bis main force, but was traceable^ to no
authentic source, while it is certain that Smith
fleld is far from the direct road from Charles
town to the rebel capital. Early's last move
ment is considered here to be no declaration of
purpose to abandon the Shenandoah \ alley.

In accordance with^nst ructions from ?
General D. H. Rucker, Chief 9^te'?"*?/rs at
?ot or Washington, I have placed schooners at
Upper and Lower Cedar Points, in
occupied by the light boats, previous to their de
?tractionby the rebels. .. ... .
From sunset until sunrise a light will be
from each of the schoon?rs. The reason e*T?n.P*
j captains of vessels, chartered and owned by *ne
, United Btatea Quartermaster Department, ^for
anchoring in the Potomac river at night.was,
that they feared that they would rua their vessels
aground if they attempted to run past the skoals
after dark. The lamps placed on the schooners
will give a light suffieintly strong to enable all
allots to pass up and down the river with safetjr,
provided they govern themselves by the oharts
provided by United States Coast Survey.
From and after this date.no vessel propelled
by sVam will be allowed to anchor, excepting la
suoh weather as by running the loss of the vessel
or?!ir*? 1ll*bt be endangered.
All masters of vessels are directed to report any
neglect ot the part of the parties oa board of the

THE CHICAGO CON VENT ION.
To-day's Proceedings?Governor Seymour
Permanent President.
Chicago, Aug. 30.?The National Democrat
ic Convention re-assembled at ten o'clock this
morning. The attendance both insideand out
side the wigwam, was even greater than yes
terday.
Immediately after the Convention was called
to order, prayer was offered by Bishop White
house, ot Illinois.
Mr. Hughes, Chairman of the Committee on
Organization, reported that the Committee had
unanimously agreed upon Horatio Seymour as
the permanent President of the Convention.
Applause greeted the announcement and the
report was adopted by acclamation.
[8 EC ON I) I>I8I'ATC1I.J
The report of the committee on organization
was read and adopted by acclamation. The
President is Horatio Seymour, and Vice Presi
dents Joseph Chase, of Maine: J. W. Sullivan,
of New Hampshire; E. D. Beach, of Massa
chusetts; D. H. Smalley, of Vermont; George
Taylor, of Connecticut; Alfred Anthony, of
Rhode Island; Andrew J. Cobb, of New Jer
sey: and Gideon J. Tucker, of New York.
When quiet was restored, Mr. Seymour pro
ceeded to address the Convention.
Mr. Seymour said: Gentlemen of the Con
vention, 1 cannot foretell the resolutions and
action of this Convention, but I sav every
member of it loves the Union, desires peace,
and will uphold Constitutional freedom. While
the resolutions and action of this Convention
are of the ntmost importance, there are addi
tional reasons why the Democratic party
should be restored to power, and they are
great reasons.
The Democratic party will restore the Union,
because it longs for its restoration. It will
bring peace, because it loves peace. It will
bring liberty to our land, because it loves lib
erty. It will put down despotism, because it
hates ignoble tyranny,which now degrades the
American people. Four years ago a conven
tion met in this city, when our country was
peaceful, prosperous and united.
Its delegates did not mean to destroy our
Government, to overwhelm us with debt, or to
drench our land with blood, but they were an
imated by intoleranceand fanticism, and blind
ed by an ignorance of spirit of our institutions,
the character of our people, and the condition
of our land. They thought they might safely
indulge their passions, and concluded to do so,
tht*y would not heed the warnings of our fa
thers, and did not consider that meddling be
gets strife, and their passions have brought our
natural results.
They were impelled to spurn all measures of
compromise. Step by step they have marched
on to results from which at the outset they
would have shrunk with horror ; and even
when war has desolated our land, has laid its
heavy burdens upon labor, and when bank
ruptcy and ruin overhang us, they will not
have the Union restored except upon condi
tions unknown to oar Constitution.
They will net let the shedding of blood cease
even for a little time, to see if christian charity
or the wisdom of statesmanship may not work
out a method to save our country.

The Chicago Convention Yesterday.
Yesterday, in the Chicago Convention, the
following resolutions were offered by Gover
nor Hunt (N. Y ), and referred to the commit
tee on resolmions:
Kesolved, That in the future, as in the past,
we will adhere with unswerving fidelity to the
Union and the Constitution, and insist on
maintaining our National unity as the only
solid foundation of our strength, security and
happiness as a people, and as the framework
of Government conducive to the welfare and
prosperity ot all the States, both Northern and
Southern, and with a view to terminate the
pending conflict and restore the blessings ot
peace, we are in favor of an armistice and ear
nes< and honorable efforts to adjust the terms
ot settlement and union on the basis of the
Constitution of the United States, and for a
final solution of all difficulties, we would re
commend a Convention of the States to review
the Constitution and adopt such amendments
and modifications as seem necessary to more
fully it sure to each State the enjoyment of all
Its ligtitb and constitutional control of its do
mestic concerns according to the original in
tent and purpose of the Federal compact.
Mr. Long (Ohio) offered the following:
Resolved, That a committee, to be composed
of one member from each State represented in
this Convention, to be selected by the respective
delegations thereof, be appointed, for the pur
pose of proceeding forthwith to thi ciry of
Washington, on behalf of this Convention and
people, to ask Mr Lincoln to snspendthe ope
ratioi; of the penoingdraft for ;n0,000n?eu until
the people shall have an opportunity, rhrough
the b:illot-boz, in a full nifotiop, iiriniluenced
m any manner by militarv ordott or military
interference, of deciding ; iir> question now fair
ly presented to them of or war at the ap
Eros hing election In November and that said
ottfitter be and are hereby Instructed to urge
upon Mr. Lincoln, by whate - hi argument they
can employ, to stay the flood of fraternal blood,
at least so far as the impending draft will con
tinue to augment it, until the people, the roure*
of alt prwer, shall have the opportunity ofex
presF'uff their will for or against the further
prosecution of the war in the choioe of oaadl
ds'^s for u e T reel lency.
The McOlellanitr 3 favor Governor Hunt's
resolution, b?t Vaiiandigham, Hall and others
bold tb?t it to sot strong enough, and if that or
anything equivalent is adopted by the com
mi'tee, a minority report will be made
Tbe ultra peace men concede tbe probable
nomination of McClellan, but will insist on a
platform demanding a cessation of hostilities,
a convention of the States, and no more fight

A sharp light is anticipated on the question
of nominating candidates or adopting a plat
'?The ultras will insist on deciding the plat
form first, bnt the McClellanites will not con
sent to this if there are ary serious differences
in reference to it. Several names are men

A Spchky Gihl.? Yesterday afternoon,
quite an excitement took place In front of tht?
depot, caused by a young and handsome girl
of about nineteen seizing ahackmrin by the col
lar and demanding that he should fork over
fit teen dollars. It appears that the young lady
and her sister came to the city last week to see
a wounded relative at Lincoln Hospital, and
engaged the hackman to take them there, for
which he charged five dollars; and she ten
dered a twenty dollar bill, which he went off
with, promising to return the chancre, but he
failed to do so. Yesterday the ladies were
about to leave the city, when they recognized
the delinquent hackman, and the eldest seized
him. The jehu attempted to *et awav at first,
but seeing that she was a determined girl he
begged to be allowed to go off and get the
money; but she held him last until efticer Pad
get came up, and be went with the hackman,
who soon raised the funds, which the officer
paid the girl.

mitted Saturday for a further hearing before
Justice Hollingshead, on a charge ot robbing a
soldier of (), was called for a hearing yester
day. It appeared by the testimony that the
accused and the soldier parted company at a
restaurant near the Park, 7th street, about
midnight. After she left the soldier showed his
pocket-book in the restaurant and added money

book, showing that if robbed It was after the

train No. 4 north, (leaving here at 3 p. m.,) was
on the way out, the rear brakesman, Michael
Fenton. a young man residing in Baltimore,
was killed near Mill's sidling. It is supposed
that when the train was about passing under
tbe bridge near that place, he looked out, and
projected his head too far, when it was struck
by one of tbe timbers ot the bridge, mashing
his head and killing him instantly. His body
was brought to the city and lastevening it was
placed in a coffin and forwarded to Baltimore
Fight in Prathkr'b Alley.?The colored
residents of Prather's alley had a free fight
\esterday. all originating from the charge ot
bn? Cage Terrill, who asserted that two colored
servants of General Hooker's were teamsters,
which made them very indignant, and the
result was loud talk and blows, in which the
women participated. Officers Eckloff, Crown,
and Smith arrested ten women and two men,
the other men engaged in the melee having
escaped. Ter:ill' was held to bail for court,
and the others were fined
A Villainous Case ?Sergeant Johnson, of
the Sec ond Precinct, reported this morning that
a girl, named Margaret Kennedy, was found in
a shanty in the Second Police Precinct, where
she had been left by a woman named Barry.
Tbe girl is fourteen years of age, was kept and
used as a prostitute by Mrs. Barry until she
was so diseased as to be unable to walk or help
herself. Barry then moved, and left her in the
shanty to die. Sergeant Johnson took the child
and had her removed to the Almshouse.

This morning Justice Bnckey tried a case of
creating a nuisance, ti at attraci*d considerable
attention. Tbe warrant was issued against C.
B Jewell, proprietor of the Soap factory, oa
Green near Bridge s-reet, and the charge was
?'hoilmg or rendering spoiled meats, rancid tal
low, or rancid grease of some kind." It ap
peared from the evidence, that the stench aris
ing from tbe rendering of rancid materials, was
so obnoxious that many of the neighbors could
not remain in their houses. The Justice fined
Mr Jewell $*20 and costs, and Mr. Jewell Im
mediately appealed to court. This is the third
time that Jewell has b^en fined for creating a
nuisance by the process of rendering tallow,
and appealed upon each case. In the two
former cases, if we are correctly informed, the
appeals were sustained by default of the ap
pellant. In this it Is hoped that the court may
decide on all tne facts.
