Another Ibci winch militates ntriin-t tho hv
potl esis that tho Kcbeis ainn d ill the capture of
Washingion, Is the exiraorilinary drgreu to
wbii b their forces have b'-eil scattered. A force
ili-trihut:ng Itscll from 11 irp r'o I'erry to Illa
ilciisbiiig and lialtlmore, mav lm well calciilu'ed
fur raking inlo I s drag-net 11 I the spoils of tho
country, and for indicting the nio-t extensive
pnssililr damage ; but for elfeeiivo military blows
concentration is, uf couise, absolutely essential.
It docs not appear that tho Kebels were ever
really concentrated, iilthonitti it is not improva
ble that they bad the m .Jor sinlon of their foreo
massed ut Monocaey, and pe haps, also, they had
a guod pnrtol it beb ro Waalilmtton. In the latter
rase we are again co nlncied to the helief that
their force was Inconsiderab'e. Tney yesterday
made a respectable show iu front of Fort Stevens
ane Fort Lincoln; but eer'iil'ily nothing more
ihan 11 moderately heavy skirmish line -no lino
of bntilc, no such mas-csof men as were conjured,
up by lively imaginations at tho front, out of
'lo'timnsol dust." 1 should think that twelve
or liltc 11 ihon'iind mu-t have included the whole
Ki ltl force in M in land.
Fil ally, in evidence thut tho enemy was not
prepared for any serious attack 011 Washington,
the weightiest circumstance of all Is that lliey
made none whatever. The numerous little spina
of light they have shown have been of the m ist
feeble kind only the rencounter of lost evening
rehehlni; the proportion of a respectable picket
fight. Without doubt they would nave been will
ing, lunl lin y f iitnl the opportunity had tiny
found Washington defenselss to have entered,
sackrd.and burned it. and their cxped.tion in
this direction, was pro aatdv a reconnaissance to
see what the rban es were.. They did not find
them promising, and after this 'hey appear to have
confined their 1 florts to keeping our large force
couped up In Washington, while the rest of the
band devoted thctn-clvcs 10 an extended system
f pillage. They funnd they could do this, and
throw our overwhelming ntitn' rrs Into a defen
sive attitude, and this was 110 doubt glory enough!
What the IUbels actually accomplished may
lis summed op as follows :
1. They established, for a time, a base of sup
plies for Lee's army in Maryland. There can b
no doubt that they have been only too success
ful In the capture of stores, cattle, horses,
which they have nude. In this part of their
programme they have probably been ai success
ful as they could have hoped. If one coulj look
down the highways of S'irgiiila, he would soe
tiling adnwn ihem long turns filled with the
ijo.'ki ojnma of this raiding campaign in Mary
land. i. Hy cutting the rallroa 1 communications
Iruding Into Itnltlmore and Washington, aid
draw ing their forces up iinpudcrnly oefora the
tleltnses of tbo city, they won the prestigo of
having lor the tiiau being thrown the capital of
the nation into a species ut'-ni'e. Thefattof the
real hoiluM ncss of this tri'iui,,h wiU not prevent
its being taken abroad for a very significant do
nionetrulion of our weakness.
3. liy tho fact of the iavasi in thiy will proba
bly guln, furthermore, the credit of having shown
H at a bile wo aro besieging the llclicl capital we
ar e unable to protect our own noil. This also is,
of course, nothing mure than specious, but it will
be accepted as Gospel by our cuuiuics ut home
and aoroad.
4. They have produced a great scare through
out ull the country covered by their operations,
and far beyond. 1 should except from this
Wushirgtou city, wuh h bus throughout
maintained a ceitain dignified composure;
but from Ma'liiis'.iirg, llagerstowii, and
Harper's Ferry 10 Baltimore, and even
north of that, they havd spread terror wher
ever they or the report ut tii-iin has gone.

The historic importnm o of tho Fourth of July
to the city ol Vn kstimg, sui gcsts that the day
should have Is en eeleiirmeii 111 grand old stvle,
but w e are sorry to suv that there were no general
ariatigi 1111 nis made for the celebration uf thn
nr.-t aiiiiivi mnry of the surrender of the city ami
the rij lity-eiKhtb of tho independence oi" the
United Mutes. This was a subject of nimo.t
universal regret on the pari of ninny 01 our
citieiis, wlm si 1 nied to have anticipated a grand
pala lny. Why there were no prep irationa f r
agt urriil celebration we arc not able to stite.
Fairly 't the turn ring tlio ei'y exhibited somo
signs uf putiiutic ilemon-tratlolis. Ihe. streets
were crowded with persons anxiously inquiring
the prugrunimo ol the day. The greater nmnber
of busmiss bouses ill the city displayed the Stars
and Stripes.
The day began vcry"plcasantlyj there was no
dust to add to the discouililurc of travelers, 11
fine shower of ruin having fallen one day pre
vious. Ihecoutinst between this day and its
anniversary is ipiito noticeable. Tho wbho Hag
then lluati d over I lie city, and a victorious army
niurclud thrmili Its streets after besieging it lor
forty-seven days.
Well do we" remember the grateful relief felt
by b- siger and besieged noon th" capitulation of
the city. What a grand s ght it was 10 the Ciiion
soldier to fee the white Hag Homing in tho brecie
along with the S'ars and Striics, and when that
noble ensign of American liberty was seen waving
from die ilomo of the Omit House, the fiiiaii
soldirr, so deep were his emotions, could do or s iy
but little cbe 'tlian to paint to "that dear old
flag" and exclaim, "long may It wave."
Feeling the necessity of rome kind of a demon
stration iu relievo the tedium of the day, an im
promptu celebration was gotten np by Lieutenant
F.. S. Johnston, l'ost Unar.ermustcr, wha turned
out the lull lorce jf bis department for.rhe occa

prorcfuon, headed by e brass band.
The procession proceeded to the headquarters
of M iijor-General Mtsu nowhere it was halted'
and speeches made. Captain J. W. Davis, Com
missary of tSubsimeure, was introduced and made
a very aiproprhite and patriotic speech of an
hour's length, dining which the Captain was fre
quent ly cheered. We regret that we are not able
to give a synopsis of bia speech. It will be re
no aibtred that the Captain is a War Democrat
of the I'gun and McCleruand school, and ia
wholly nevoted to the cau-e of bis country.
1'iivate Oregg, of the l'.Mth llcgiment Illinois
Infantry, was next introduced, and speke for
ninrly an hour In regular old-tashioiied Fourth
of July stylo, drawing forth rcpeitcd cheering.
Major Itart cs, I'ntted Statos Army, was loudly
called for, and resismded in a short and telling
piHicch, utter which it was announced that tho
Grunt l'enibcrion monument would lie erectal
ut t luc e o'clock iu the afternoon, under the dt
rcction of Major McKee, Provost Marshal. The
ass mtilnge then disiersed.
Own g to the ill health of Major McKco, the
erection of the monument was given by him in
charge to Major llarnes aud Captain Anderson,
United Maus Army, w ho proceeded to the site,
and loiind that every preparation bad boeu made
fur the ceremony by Mr. F.dward Miner, f ire
man, in the employ of Captain William Kinkier,
Assistant Quartermaster, and to whom belongs the
credit of having originated the scheme under tho
direction of the Cuptain.
Unite a large assemblugo having collected, the
monument was placed in position at half-post
lour o'clock, under the direction of Major llurncs
and Captain Anderson, assisted hy several other
persons, among whom ihe editorial "e" was to
be found. Tbo aflair passed olf spier. didly, aud
every one engaged felt as though be had per
formed only what duty required, witiioat display
or cercuioi.y.
Tl e iiiouument is of white marble, surroundtd
by an iron lence, tbe whole presenting a ncuc but
rather imposing appearance. T here is a square

Gem nil Grant has been so much weakened by
sending troops to the relief of Washington, that
they can risk an attack. Our army Is much in

WAauiMiroN, July 15 I'tie cneniy have sue-
ccedrd In cflcctleg a sale retreat across the l'oto
iiinc, vthic h thrv began hist Tuesday afiet 11 kju.
Our furc rs followed them 011 Wednesday, but the
1 urmit has as yet accomplished nettling beyond
the pu king up of uruggleis. Kockv lllc was the
Kebel banc of opciiilious, und its poses-i m se
cured their safe retreat. On Wednesday noon the
Itebi Is pa-Si d through Koekville.
When they were leaving tho town on their re
turn to F.dwards' Ferry, they were harassed con
siderably by Colonel Lovell, of ihe 2d Massachu
setts Cavalry. Hi force, numbering about V)
dismounted cnvnlry, driving them until their
rear guaid was reinforced, when he was obliged
to fall back, before doing so, however, ho had
quite a sprightly engagement with them, during
which lie had seven wounded aud 0110 killed.
I he Kebels lost several killed j a colonel, be
lieved to be mortally wounded, who was sup.
posed to be somewhere In the vicinity of Rottk
ville; two wounded w hom they could not carry
away, and a largo numlcr or others, wounded,
w hom they took with thcin in the carrliges nnd
wagons they hud stolen.
The rette at was simultaneous throughout their
whole line, or nearly so, a small portion passing
down the Hivcr road, and the remainder of tbeir
force concentrating from various directions, and
passing through Kockvtllo, rn route for Edwards'
Fury, whue 11 most iheir entire force crossed.
Tiny commented retreatiug on Tuesday,
and their front lino passed Ksickvike
and other adjacent roads upon a line with that
place at twelve o'clock ou Tuesday night, and
was continually falling back until twelve o'clock
on Wednesday, when the rear of their miln bixly
bad gone. They retained their pickets at Koek
ville and ut the cross-roads, and on river roads,
as well as upon tho road leading towards Frede
rick, nutil between live end six o'clock ou Wed
nesday evening. Almost their entire force Is be
lieved to huvo crossed tho river on Wednesday
The foe consisted simply of stragglers, a con
siderable number of whom were captured by our
dismounted cavalry und the advance of uue of our
corps. Last evening, our advance commander
bad bia headquarters at 1'oolesvillo, about thirty
miles from Washington, and tlirco miles from the
l'otuniac. It is much 10 be regretted that we did
not know as much about Kebel movcmoiits Tues
day,!'. M., as we did Wednesday afternoon. Had
such been the case, our men might have gone
out from the formications, made tbe reoonuois
sance, and on Tuesday evemng made a guuoral
forward movement, and caught tue enemy in all
the details of a retreat, but fortune smiled upon
tbe foe, and while we waited fur Ihe assault upon
the fortifications of Washington, our shrewd
and wily enemy was making good his escape
under the very nose of our army. Ho has gone,
earn itig with him all his stock and plunder.
Tho North bus been a third time disgraced with
invasion. If tbo enemy should a fourth time
appear in our liorder, will wo have one good
militia regiment to oppose them i
tJuerllliui ou me Jnnita Klvrr.
On Wcduesday afternoon, at 5 o'clock, while
one of our propellers was going up the Jatuos
river, the Kebuls fired upon her from Wilcox's
Landing. Two solid shots struck the vessel
just above the wuter Hue, but failed to Inflict uny
material damage. A gunboat immediately
moved up and shelled the Kebels, aud theu
landed a force, which pursued tho enemy quite) a
cl'rmtklnira of the Wlaeaereo.
There aro hundreds of people here who are
trying to ptovc thut the Kebel force lately in
Mary land numbered seventy or eighty thousand
men. We wish, for the honor uf tbo nation, it
hud been co, ns we should not now bo su during
from tbo di.-grace of our capital having been In
vested by twenty thousand men.
Somebody was to blame first, for tbe advance
of the cneniy into Maryland, and again for allow
ing a greatly Inferior force to threaten toe very
gates of the capital. Who was the man ? There
is 110 leather medul largo enough with which to
rewuid him for bis military ub.lity.

manuer to tho Gre at Central Clothing House of
Wniminiurher A llrown, S. K. corner of Plx'h
anil Market streets. Wtiihi day ufer day those
gentlemen have not failed to announce in our
udvc rti-lng columns un account of all the vari 'd
articles of wearing apparel displayed at their
famous establishment, "Oik Hall," yet, at the
s.iine time, for tho benefit of those who boast
thut (hey do not re ad newspaper advertisoiuouts,
tin y avail themselve s of a volume, that, iu those
days of cracked skulls anil bloody noses, people
cannot reluseto read, if they would be po-tod
upon the stirring events of our local a well a.
national history.
Notices of which (lie above Is a type are, In
newspaper parlance, called "pull's." This fact i.
fully admitted by Messrs. W. v 11. As the merits
of a cigar run only be tested bv the puitlug pro
cess, so the cheapness, durability, aud excalleuce
of tLelr goods csn only bo subsuuiiatcJ by di

years have been of the mast extensive clura.'ter,
and tho descrirtion of ihe goods disposed ot have
delighted all their patrous. Strangers visiiiag tlie
city will bud that the most advautagoous bargains
are to be made at Ibis CA'lc'jrateiUesublishiueat.
