O A "reliable gentleman" informs us that the secet.li are evacuating Humboldt! This is but a precursor to the evacuation of Richmond.

FiGirro-a Junction Bots. We have received a private letter from amember of the Kansas 2nd, which pays the following compliment to some Junction boys in the 6th Kansas : "In the fight at Coon Creek, Lieutenant Gordon.R.Hcnderson, Lindville and E. Pooler distinguished themselves 'as brave and daring men." That is the record that is being made for Davis county by her sons In the field. Why eannot nch men as Sergeant Henderson be given the -commissions that are dairy-being showered uponthe political favorites of .Gar. Robinson. 2 ' District Coxvextios. The Union men of Davis coonty are requested to meet in their dif ferent precincts, and elect delegates to attead the District Convention at Junction City, on Friday, September 26th, 18S2.

JD" Progress or retrogression is the dxsvice of the day. We perceived this the' best when we called at Leavenworth, at Mr. S. M. Roths child's Store who keeps a large and nice assort ment, wholesale and retail, of Miluseby a.d Steaw Goods, IIosiert, Gloves, Hoop Skirt?, ALL KIKDS OF NOTIONS AhD FaXCT GOODS, WlL- low Ware, Citix-drex's Carriages and Gests' Fobnmhing Good?, and intends keeping DRY GOODS by nest Fall. For that purpose he is enlarging his fctore and finishing it ap in the latest New York style. We therefore advise all, especially MERCHANTS aud MILLIN ERS, to call at his establishment, 71 Delaware! street, and buy their wants, where they will surely find the best and greatest assortment, the lowest prices, prompt and most attendance in the Western country, Instructions To United Slates Marslialls, Military Com mandants, Provost Marshals, i'olicc Olli cers, Sheriffs, etc. The quota of volunteers and the enrol ment of militia having been completed in the several States, the necessity for strin gent enforcement of the orders of the War Department in respect to volunteering and drafting no longer exists Arrest for violation of these orders, and for disloyal practices, will hereafter be made only upon my express warrant, or by the military commander or governor of the Stale in which such arrests may be made, and the restrictions upon travel imposed by these orders are rescinded. It. C. Turner, Judge Advocate. Latest From Washington. It is understood that-30,000 rebels have crossed into Maryland. It is said seces sionists are buying horses here and in Bal timore for the rebel artillery and cavalry. To-night Gen. McClellan was placed in command of the armies of the Potomac and Virginia. Tho whole army is ordered to be provided with three days rations. He is placing the new regiments in the old brigades. Fredericksburg has been occupied by rebel infantry and cavalry. It is known that the rebels are in force in the neighbor hood of Frederick. They captured nothing as the rolling stock of the railroad had been sent away. The bridge across the Monocacy is not injured, but trains are not allowed to go within three miles of Freder ick Junction. Our military authoiities aro conuuent tins ram viil cost me enemy ex actly the number of troops who have cro?cd. Heintzlouian's and McDowell's are to be consolidated under the command of General ileintzlcman. Jacksou's army lias entered Frcdeiick. They have possession of the Baltimore and Ohio llailroad, and have toru up the track and dcstro3'cd culverts east of that place. They also cut the telegraph line. A corrcpondent says the older for a court of inquiry iu the recent disasters on the battlefield has not been countermanded but only suspended. It met and adjourned foi a week v.ithout doing any thing. Those who have seen McDowell's letter to the President, asking for a court of in quiry, speak of it as a frank, mnnly and honest document, lie refers to the remark alleged to have been made by Col. Broad head, of Michigan, when at the point of death, to tho effect that he died a victim to the imbecility of Pope and the treachery of lUvjUWCil. General Banks is in command of the de fences of Washington during General Mc Clcllan's absence. All reports agree that the rebel officers as a rule treat our wounded humanely, and our prisoners according to the laws of war. Secretary Stanton and General McClel Ian aro on such terms that the latter took tea with tho former on Saturday evening. Lieutenant-Colonel Kane, of the Penn sylvania Buck Tails, has been appointed a Brigadier. Generate Sigel and McDowell. The Washington A'ationol Republican has the following curious item in regard to Saturday's battle, which, taken in connec tion with an article from the New York Democrat, gives a coloring of truth to the rumor of General Sigel's shooting General McDowell on the battle-field. The battle,- it is said, was planned and commanded on our part, for the greater portion of the time, by General Sigel, who mvc orders to our forces to hold their posi tion and await an attack by the enemy, supposed to be Jackson ; instead of tliis, General JTcDoiccU, it ho holds the extreme left, advanced and attacked Longslrect's division on the enemy s right. He was met by a terrible fire from the rebels, during which General Slocum's brigade was teiri bly cut up, and McDowell was forced to give way. He was reinforced by a portion of FitzJobu Porter's division, and another attack was made on the assailants, when they were iu turn "driven back to their ori ginal position. The New York Democrat says : Yester day a gentleman, just arrived from the battle-field, gave us the following explana tion of the rumor of a shooting affray oe tween Generals Sigel and McDowell: "SigeUhad taken numerous prisoners, and commanded them to be sent to the rear of the army, to be transported to Washing ton. The way led through McDowell's camp, who refused to let the prisoner nd their escort pass. Gen- Sigel thereupon instructed the .Colonel of the escort to shoot McDowell, if the' latter refused bias passage .through bis camp again. McDowell did so, but submitted when the Colonel told him -what -fa 4ia6V been instructed to do by General Sigel. But is the marching back wards and. forwards taost of -the prisoners seem to Layc eecaped.'? We give jthia explanation as "we bare received it, ad do sot consider tfce facts at all impossible. We have repeatedly said that jealousy wa3 the greatest drawback to the harmonious co-opcratiop ofrour Gen erals. It is very evident that Sigel is re garded with particular jealousy. The cam paign is evidently not carried on according to his views, and as he does not disguise it, be is persecuted with particular enmity. m m m . The Rebels Ctom the Potomac, From one of the Times1 correspondents who has just returned from Poolsville, we learn that on Tuesday night the rebels commenced to cross with cavalry at or near the mouth of the Monocaey. They brought over two regiments of cavalry and threw across a pontoon bridge, and crossed with artillery and threw out pickets in the direction of Poolsville. On Friday, about 11 o'clock, a column of infantry and artil lery commenced to cross. They were cross ing in three places besides the bridge, the water being up to a man's waist. No resistance was offered to their crossing. ! Some cavalry who were watching them were attacked and chased to Poolsville. There the houses 'were closed and the streets blockaded by the citizens. The farmers fired upon our flying cavalry as they passed. About dusk Gen. Lee rode into Poolsville at the head of four regiments of infantry, guided by a farmer who had professedly been a Union man. Their infantry went off to the left toward Fred erick. Gens. Lee, Hide, Stuart and Fitz hugh Lee are with the men. Their wagon trains were crossing on Saturday and Sun day morning. The farmers are bringing in hay, and provisions of all kinds and giving them away. There is not a loyal man with one or two exceptions there. Women received them with flags and tokens of joy. Sunday, p. m. The" following account has just been received from the Upper Potomac : The rebel forces in the neighbor hood of Darnestown and Clarksburg are estimated at 8000, and composed entirely of cavalry. A body of about 1500 crossed the river last night at White's Ferry, and are supposed to be en route to Frederick. Our forces hold the bridge across Senaca creek, which was not injured by the rebels in their recent dash on Darnestown. It has been ascertained that Jackson crossed the Potomac opposite the north mouth of the Monocacy, and passed along the bank of the stream to Frederick. History records few instances of such tremendous struggles as tho battles before Richmond and those again before Washington. Uusually, one or two days is sufficient in Europe to determine a vic tory or a defeat. In this country, owing to topographical peculiarities, battles' can be conducted for several days in succession, without any definite result, There is so much wood and water, and the ground is so ground is so broken, that rules which ap pertain to warfare in the cultivated plains of Europe do not avail here, and henco the remarkable succession of conflicts which this war baa witnessed.
