Two days Later from the North.

The Baltimore American, of the 22d, has been received here. A telegram from Harrisburg, dated 21st, says that the rebels are reported to be 40,000 strong at Hagerstown, Md, and fortifying. The troops at Harrisburg are expecting marching orders immediately.

Gov. Curtin received a dispatch from Chambersburg which states that Jenkins was at Waynesburg, twelve miles from Chambersburg, Saturday evening. He had been plundering the houses among the mountains.

Gen. Couch has received a dispatch confirming the report that the rebel cavalry were at Gettysburg.

The force that went to McConnelsville, in Fulton, to 25 miles from Chambersburg, helped themselves to whatever they wanted in the stores, collected together a large number of cattle and horses, and then moved off towards Hancock, Md.

A small mounted force rode into Frederick, Saturday, paroled the sick soldiers in the hospitals, took a few horses, and left. No attack has been made so far on Harper's Ferry.

Three thousand laborers have been called into service, and negroes freely impressed, for the thorough fortification of Baltimore.

Nothing definite is published in regard to the movements of Gen. Lee's army, or of Hooker's.
