The Rebel Raiders on the Retreat up the
Valley to Kwapf from Hunter?Sot one
?f the Rebels aow in Maryland.
ft'aw Yobk, July 7.?A special dispatch to
the TVifrune, dated Baltimore last evening, says
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company
had just received intelligence from Sandy
Hook, stating that not a rebel could be seen or
heard of at Harper's Ferry, or in any part ol
Maryland, and that by to-morrow morning
there would not be one in that vicinity, they
having retreated np the Valley to escape being
captured by Hunter.

We hare information direct from Hagers
town, to the effect that on Tuesday afternoon,
at 3 o'clock, a rebel squad, consisting of fifteen
cavalrymen, commanded by Lieut. Sharer,
formerly of Martinsbnrg. Va., entered that
place.
This force appeared to be a reconnoitring
party, and tfcey had only been in the town a
f?w moments when a detachment of regular
cavairv from Carlisle, Pa., commanded by
Lieut McLean, dashed into the place.
A brief cavalry fight immediately ensued In
tne streets of Hagerstown, which 'resulted in
tne rebels being driven out of the town with a
loss of a lieutenant and two privates taken
prisoners
About a half hour after this fight the rebels
aga^n entered the town, their forces consisting
'**airy and mounted infantry. Lieutenant
McLean of the Union cavalry findlnghis force
too small to cope with the larger number of the
rebels, he slowiy fell back to the Pennsylvania
line, carrying with him his prisoners.
The rebels, after entering the town, set to
work to destroy the telegraph wire, but they
Lad made no demonstration against the rail
road when our informants left. They also
plundered many of thf store?, butseemtohave
adopted a different plan from the one they pur
sued la*t summer, as they now make no dis
tinction between rebel sympathizers and
L nionists Many of the rebel citizens, perhaps
anticipating this treatment, ran their horses
into Pennsylvania.

I XiBDHuif k Jrsction, July 'j.?The force of
the enemy is not estimated here a: more taan
O.UOO, all told. Of these a marauding party of
about 1oo is scouring the country north of th?
river, stealing horses, robbing stores. Jcc., but
showing no disposition for fight.
The main body oi the enemy has not crossed
the river, nor is it in sight of Harper's Ferry,
beirr rrrcealed behind Bolivar Heights. Their
sharpshooter^, however, command the rail
ro?n d??n to Sandy Hook.
We have evacuated Harper's Ferry, how
ever, and concentrated our forces under Sigel
on Maryland Heights.
t'p to this time there has been no fighting,
beyond an occasional interchange of compli
ments between the pickets. It is thought that
ample means are at hand to meet any demon
stration the enemy may make.
A small cavalry skirmish appears to be
gciog on just beyond Frederick, a party of our
cavairy having overhaul.d a body of the
horse thieves. The smoke and dust seems
receding, the enemy being apparently discom
fited.
The enemy, to the best of present informa
tion. is commanded by Early, and It is thought
he hs? little witb him beyond his own division
He is evidently in no condition to make his raid
of any advantage to the rebel cause.
From this stand-point I can safely assure
the public that to great damage will result
from Early's raid.
A small fight took place at Middletown this
morning, when the enemy were driven back.
Fmderick, July 6, l?p. m ?I am unable,
owing to the prevailing excitement which
seems to have deranged everything and every
body here, to do more than forward von a few
particular points.
Skirmishing has been going on to-day be
tween the rebel advance and oar forces, within
four miles of Frederick city, bot up to this
hour no rebel* have entered Frederick city,
except as prisor.ers.
Great alarm and excitement prevailed here
this afternoon, caused by a report that the
rebels were entering town. The stores were
all closed and the people were running to and
fro, and many were leaving the city In great
haste. The excitement has somewhat abated
this evening. I can learn nothing yet as to the
number of the invaders, but the belief Is that
taey are in strength and intend to occupy the
Cumberland Valley.
Fbkdbkick, July G, 7 v u. The day has
raised in comparative qUwt both at Point of
Rocks and Harper's Ferry. The main body of
rebels are still behind Bolivar Heichu, al

Fabulous numbers of Rebels are reported to
be at WIlliamsport; >0,000 for Stance at

overheated imaginations. F

van La, or to try conclusions withsigai on the
north side, la, of courae, not known. It u
however, pretty certain, from their action to'
day. that they intend to give the Ferry the slip
Tne general situation seems to be that the
Infantry of the rebel forco Is, or has been un
til nose tc-day, lying n?ar Harper's Ferry,
****?tog Stgei's attention, while the cavalry,
1a *quad* of fifty and a hundred, are waader
lag owr the country north of the Potomac, in
?zealous search ot horses, dry foods and green
backs. Parties ot theee latter gentry have ap
peared to-day at Shirpaburg, Middletown and
vartons localities to the north and northwest
of Frederick.
Burners are current of parties devastating
fee south side, aa low down as NoUn's Ford,
but they an* not reliable. It is still a mystery
as to what the rebels intend or expect to do.
So large a force would not certainly come so
far aa this to accomplish all they hare yet at

of the Potomac are cf the old command of A.
O. Jenkins, and are now led by Brir cbener^l

FROM THE FRONT.
urgTT Frlna Yesterday i* the Direction of |
Fturikvg.
The mail steamer Keyport arrived here this
morning, at 9 o'clock from City Point.
At 10 o'clock yesterday morning, the hoar at
which the Keyport left City Point, he#ty
firing was heard there from the direcUoa of
Petersburg, but it wae not known at City Point
whether or not it was anything more than an
artillery duel
The Keyport brought np Mr. Joel Parr and
family, relugees from Virginia. Parr resided
in Prince George's connty. aboutthtrteen mites
southeast of Petersburg, and was the only man
in the connty who proved true to the old flag.
Parr was afrested by the rebel authorities for
his Union sentiments, and committed to prison
but he was released a few days age, and suc
ceeded in making his way into our lines with
his family. Parr and his family have aban
doned all their property, and are now in a des
titute condition, but he says he is not discour
aged and can work for a living under the Stars
and Stripes.
The hospitals at City Point have been cleared
of nearly all the sick and wounded, and many
members of the Christian and Sanitary Com
missions are on their way home.
THE REBEL RAID.
Latest from Harper's Ferry?Strength of
the Enemy ? Rebels Reported 30,000
Strong?Movements to Flank the Rebels?
Movements of General Hunter?False
Alarms at Frederick.
The reports from Harper's Ferry are so con
; tradictorv that it iB difficult to say what is ra?
liable, as'no two accounts agree. Several gen
tlemen from that vicinity who arrived here
yesterday stated that it was positively ascer
tained that the whole rebel force did not exceed
five to six thousand. "Whether they had been
reinforced during the day we have not learned,
but a dispatch was received last evening an
nouncing that members of General Sigel's
Signal Corps report the enemy had appeared
: not less than thirty thousand strong, and that
they were crossing to the Maryland side, at
what point the despatches did not state, but it
is presumed this side of Harper's Ferry. At
the latest accounts from Frederick last eve
ning the}-had not visited that city, but there
had been several false alarms and great excite
ment during the day.
General Sigei continued to hold the Clary
land Hights up to last evening with a large
force, and no actual hostilities had occurred,
except the throwing ot a few shell during the
c?av at patties of rebels who had appeared on
Boliver Hights and at Harper's Ferry.
A gentleman who arrived here last evening
from Hagerstown reports that .there had been
some fighting between that city and Sharps
burg, with rebel cavalry, and that they were
repulsed aud driven two miles by our troops,
leaving several dead and wounded on the
field ? Baltimore American, ~th.

below the Point ot Socks, and after robbing
the store there returned to the south side of the
Potomac to divide the spoils. No reports have
reached Georgetown ol further depredations
by the rebels and all the Indications are that
the rebels have left that vicinity.
The boatman on the canal have not yet re
covered from their scare, and the canal is
crowded with light boats at the Aqueduct,
each captain being anxious to secure a posi

possible. The result is that difficulty is expe

LIVELY TIMES IN THE POTOMAC FLOTIL
LA-OUR TABS HAVE A FIGHT WITH THE
SECOND VIRGINIA CAVALRY.
On Monday, some of the officers and sailors
of our Flotilla had a lively time celebrating the
Fourth of July. On the merning of that day
we learn that four or five of our gunboats,
under command of Lieutenant Hooker, pro
ceeded up the Rappahannock and landed a
considerable force of men, in charge of Acting
Master Sheet, of the Fuschia, at or near Car
ter's whart, some thirty miles from the month
of the river. On landing, the party immedi
ately proceeded overland, on a foraging expe
dition, and secured quite a number of horses,
: ice. The gunboats, as soon as they had landed
this force, proceeded round to the Great Wi
comico, where it had been arranged that the
raiding party should join them, and a force
was sent ont to meet them.
Hut it seems that our gallant tars were to
have some little sport on their own hook, for
when about half way across the need they
came across a large detachment of the Jd Vir
ginia regular cavalry, thought to number from
four to five hundred, who attempted to cut otf
cur force, and a fight immediately ensued. Our
ipen, however, kept well together, and managed
to get past the rebels, and fell bacK towards the
gunboats, losing hut four men taken prisoners,
and none killed or wounded, while we brought
away two rebel officers, (a captain and a lieu
tenant,) and one man. Tne rebels followed our
men to the shore, and sent ont a flag of truce
asking an exchange of prisoners, offering the
four men they captured from us for their cap.
tain: but Captain Hooker declined the swap,
refusing to exchange officers for men. B?fore
leaving the gunboats paid a parting salute to
Johnny Reb, in the way of a few shells, caus
ing them to scamper. The prisoners have been
sent to Point Lookout.
BAKER'S CAVALRY SEE? SIGHTS ON THE
WILSON RAID?A SPIRITED ACCOl NT.
The following was received yesterday from
a sergeant in Baker's 1st District of Columbia
cavalry:
Camp 1st I). C. Cavalry, A'car Giles'
Lavdintj, Bermuda Hundred, July 4th, 1364.?I
returned lrom a raid on the Richmond and
Danville railroad, with but Ave men, all that
was lelt of company A, on the -2-fth. I was the
only sergeant who escaped; all the old boys
are in the rebs hands?O'Donnell, McHugh,
Hammer, and the others, thirty-four in num
ber. Tho way it was tfbne was this: We ac
companied Brig. Gen. Wilson, 12,000 Btrong,
and 14 pieces of artillery, and tore up sixty
miles of railroad, burned 11 depots, besides
capturing horses and whatever we could lay
our hands on, clean into Weldon, N. C. We
did not meet with any opposition of any ac
count until our return, anei within four miles
of our lines on the Petersburg road, where we
had made two successful raids before. Here,
unbeknown to ue, Lee's right wing was lying,
and before we knew it the whole of them had
surrounded us, both on the front and rear,
and they had ns foul. There were but two
roads by which we could get out, and the rebs
had possession of both. Our boys fought them
every way like demons, they charged and
charged, but could not get out. Tuelast charge
I led them?all the officers having gone under?
it was a terrible charge, but like the others, it
failed. The order came, "Every man for him
self and the devil for us all." I had at that
time 46 mules, 11 horses, and three mares, be
sides any quantity of negrees, buggies, wagons,
&c., &c., at le:ist $1*2,000 worth of stuff, but I
had to leave it all, and was thankful to get off
with my head. The last seen of company A
they were between a body of rebel infantry and
cavalry, lighting like the devil, but they had
to cave. The 1st D. C. cavalry lost 11 offlcsrs
and 24- men in that raid; company A losing 34
men and 1 officer.
A RUMOR.
It is reported on the street that some time
during last night a squad of rebel cavalry
passed south a short distance west of Fairfax
Court-House, having in their possession a
number ol horses captured in the late raid. An
attempt, it is said, was made by a squad of our
cavalry, who were scouting, to intercept them,
but the force was not large enough to do so,
and the rebs got away. We have made inquiry
of officers on duty in and about Alexandria,
but they have no knowledge of the affair.
FOR THE FRONT.
The TT. S. steamer Charlotte Vanderbilt left
at 2 o'clock to-day for City Point, taking down
a number ol officers and soldiers, who go to
rejoin their regiments at the front.

After careful Inquiry, with a desire to sift

avoid acting the part of the alarmist on one
hand by overstating or encouraging false se
curity by moderating the state of facta, I send
you the following, which is deemed to be cor
rect:
The most reliable intelligence from Maryland
Heights and region beyond this morning war
rants the belief that the rebel force now on
this side of the Potomac and on the line of the
river on the Virginia side is larger thaa at first
supposed. It is believed to be not far short oj
30,000.
Advices from $andy Hook down to 10 o'clock
this morning say that an officer from Genera1
Sigel's headquarters at Maryland Heights, re
ports some skirmishing going on back of the
Heights, bat the number of the enemy there is
?mall. . . .
With the aid of a glass and the signal corps,
the enemy can be' observed towards Sharps
burg driving off cattle, horses, <fcc? aad plun
dering the farmers in the valley. No large
force, however, is visible.
Advices from Greencastle, Pa., this morning,
*ay that the rebels occupy Hagerstown this I
morning, but in what force is cot known.
The train from Frederick is just lu, and
reports that Colonel Cole's Maryland cavalry
had a skirmish with a small rebel force, a
scouting party, four miles west of Frederick,
about two o'clock yesterday afternoon. It was
ascertained subsequently that the force was
qalte small.
The rebel officers dined at noon at Hagner's
Mountain House.
Later in the day, Alexander's Maryland Bat
tery and detachments of the arth Illinois caval
ry went in pursuit of the rebels, and during
last night drove a feree of 100 rebels through
Middle town. While in that place yesterday
they mad*good use of their time la plundering
the citizens of their horses aad other property.

which it Is not proper, for prudential reasofe^
to particularize.
