This information is brought by passengers

Raiders at Fairfax Court House.
Ankamdalk, July 8, 1S&4 ? Editor Star? A
scout ot 150 men, from the '2d Massachusetts
and 13th New York cavalry, under command
of Major Forbes, went up iu the vicinity of
Aldie, where they met Moseby with a large
lorce, with a piece of artillery and riflemen.
Moseby charged on them, and killed ten or
fifteen and captured nearly the whole party,
hordes and accoutrements These horses were
well drilled, and o. great value to the tfovern
ment. Our cavalry had Spencer's repeating
rifles, which will also be of material service to
Moseby. This atlair hits stirred up the boys to
the highest pitch of indignation. On receipt of
the news. Colonel I-owell started oil at mid
night with ->00 men from 2d and 1 Jth regiments,
and Captain McPhereon, of lt>th New York .
cavalry, joined bim at Fairfax, and tliey pro- I
coeded to Aldie, where they found iwentv-flve !
wounded men, and eleven dead which they
bnried. They sconred the country about that
region, and found it was ot no use to pursue
Mcseby, as he na<t twelve hours the start of
them towards Upperville, where he had taken
onr boyfc and his booty. This has been Mose- j
by's bravest aud largest capture, and there is
something about it almost unaccountable, when
we know how efficieut this cavalry force has |
been heretofore, 'he numerous times tney have
sought Moseby the past year, and the number
of captures we have made. Our party returned
last evening with the wounded men of the 13th
IS'ew York and id Massachusetts cavalry.

Thirty rebels were at Fairfax Court House

A BATTLE NEAR FREDERICK OX
Defeat of the Rebels by Gen. Wallace?He
Captures One Piece ?< Artillery?The En
emy Retreat During the Night.
[Despatch to the Philadelphia Inquirer.]
Fkkdkrick, Jnly K?1 have notified yon
ol-beavy skirmishing yesterday morning, in
which our forces were forced back on the road
from Middletown towards Frederick. The
rebels, evidently reinforced, followed up their
advantage by pnrsuing close up to onr retiring
column. In the meantime G<?n. Wallace hur
ried np reinforct-ments under Oen. Tyler, with
li s chief of Btaff, Lieut. Col. Lynd Catltn. The
rebel force was about l,2U0 in number, com
manded by Oen. Bradley T.Johnson, and com
posed of cavalry and Infantry, with two pieces
Johnson, a'ter forcing ns back in the morn
ing, succeeded in eluding our forces at Catoc
tin Pass, and by 3 o'clock in the afternoon was
rapidly approaching Frederick.
?>ome mile and a half beyond the city he was
met by Colonel Oilpin, and a brisk engage
ment immediately ensued. Colonel Qilpin
forming bis line of battle on an eligible ground.
Under cover of tbe Are of their three pieces the
rebels advanced to the charge, bnt notwith
standing the troops ot Oilpin were mostly raw,
they met the onset withontilinching, and drove
the rebels back. Reforming their lin>* the reb
els again advanced t? charge, but our boys,
with a constancy worthy of veterans, hurled
them back. Not yet satisfied, Johnson essayed
it once more, but meeting the same fate, he de
sisted from any further attempts, and contented
himself with a brisk skirmish fight until night,
in which we were still his match.
Our losses were about fifty, mostly slightly
wonnded. The rebel loss is not known, but is
supposed to be heavy. This morning at day.
liEhi it was discovered that Johnson had re
tired towards Middletown, and our forces
b tar ted in pursuit and overtook him near Ca
toctin Pass, when brisk skirmishing ensued,
but I only know at this moment that the enemy
is atlll apparently falling back. Our troope in
that direction received such reinforcements
this morning as will render the situation per
fectly secure. On this peint I don't deem it
prudent to say more.
We are again in possession of Harper's Fer
ry, which indicates that the rebfls have aban
doned all attempts against Sigel. I think,from
a general glance over tbe whole field, that the
days of the rebel ra'd are numbered. Several
events which tend to confirm this belief are
not yet public property, and I can say no more
than liiavein this brief dispatch.

And whereas the said bill contains, among
oher thiDgs, a plan for restoring tlie States in

the Union, which plan expresses tbe sen?? of
Congress upon thai subject, and which plan it
is new thought fit to lay before the people for
Now, therelore, I, Am: ah am Lincoln, Pres

prepared, by a formal approval of this bill, 'o
be inflexibly committed to any single plan i?"

to declare that the free State constitutions
and governments already adopted and in
stalled in Arkansas and Louisiana shall be
set aside and held tor nought, thereby re
pelling and discoursing the loyal citizens
who have 6et up the same a? to further ef
fort, or to declare a constitutional competency
in Congress to abolish slavery in Stnte3, bnt
am at the same time sincerely hoping ana
expecting that a constitutional amendment
abolishing slavery throughout the nation may
be adopted, nevertheless I am fully satisfied
with the system for restoration contained in
the bill as one very proper plan for the loyal
people of any State choosing to adopt it, and
that I am. and at all times shall be, prepared
to giva the Executive aid and assistance to any
such people, so soon as the military resistance
to the United States shall have been suppressed
in any such State, and the people thereof shall
have snfllciently returned to ther obedience to
tbe Constitution and laws of the United States,
in which cases Military Governors will be ap
pointed, with directions to proceed according
to the bill.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set

Evidence of Rebel Barbarity.
The U. S. mail steamer Highland Light, Cap
tain Weeks, arrived here this morn'ng from
City Point, which place she lett at 11 o'clock
From parties coming up on her we learu
that on Thursday night the rebels brought a
battery to bear upon a working party of our:
who were engaged in throwing up earthworks
nearer to Petersburg, and for awhile a sharp
cannonading took place, our men having also
brought up a battery to oppose '.hat of the reb
els; and that the latter was soon silenced. Sub
sequently the rebels took up & new position,
and again opened upon our working party,
but finding they could accomplish nothing
W ith this exception all has been quiet for a
few days past. But this Is but the preliminary
moment of quiet before the storm. Grant
never was more hopeful of taking Richmond,
never was better prepared and was never be
fore so near the accomplishment of his purpose
as at this moment. All this may seem para
doxical in view of the rebel "Great Calcula
tions" of creating a diversion frocn Richmond
by their Potomac raid, but it is strictly true as
t'me will Bhow.
Hon. John Covode, of Pennsylvania, came
up on the Highland Light, bringiug up the
body of his son, Col.G. K. Covode, of the 1th
Pennsylvania cavalry, who was killed while
protecting the rear of Sheridan's train, while
crossing James riverin its late movement from
the'White House to join the main army. Mr.
Covode went down on Tuesday la.it, and as
the body of the Celonel was in the xebel line3,
four of his own company volunteered to search
out the spot where he lell. Permission was
obtained and they started on their ml"lo i a*Vd
got safely through the lines Md iLid
The next night General Sheridan t&Mied a
company of 40 men, who. under cover or &
gunboat detailed for the purpose, landed at
St. Marys, In Charles county, and avoiding
the rebel pickets, secured the body. His body
had been interred by some negroes, who placed
boards around the grave.
These negroes state that Col. Covode lingered
all night and died the morninsc after being
wounded. Before he died the rebels took lrooi
him his watch, money and valuables, and then
stripped him of all his clothing except his
A PIC NIC PARTY SURPRISED BY GUER
Yesterday a party of young ladies and gen
tlemen had a pic-nic near Falls Church, Va,
and in the midst of their pleasures they were
surprised at the appearance of about twenty
five of Moseby's men, who told them nol to be
afraid, and danced a set with the ladies, after
which they went to the wagons and devoured
the cream and edibles provided for the occa
sion. They then made off.

THE INVASION OF MARYLAND.
Another Fire at Harper's Ferry?Another
Advance Towards Frederick?A Fight in
The rebel Invasion of Western Maryland
continues to be the exciting topic, and each
and every train that reaches this city via the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad trom that sec
t ou of the State brings quite a number of
refugees. As usual, their statements of the
lumber of the rebels, the fights, tec., vary con
siderably, and are all gleaned from what they
Since Thursday night we learn from official
sources the following state of affairs in that
' The rebels hare left Harper's Ferry and Bol
ivar Heights, and a brieade of General Sigel's
troops (who were on Maryland Heights) have
reoccupied those places, and at last accounts
held them, their being no Bigns of the enemy in
The railroad is in workingorder between this
city and Sandy Hook, opposite the Ferry, and
cars run to that point.
There was another extensive fire at Harper's
Ferry on Thursday night. The bridge over
the Shenandoah was in flames, and a number
of buildings in various parts of the town. The
enemy bad previously burned the extensive
railroad platform, and all the buildings along
the line of the Potomac. The conflagration ou
Thursday night threw a glow over all the
country for miles around.
The main body of the rebels is supposed bo
be in the neighborhood of Mechanicksburg,
watching for the appearance of Gen. Hunter,
and the opinion is becoming general that they
do not cumber the half or thirty thousand.
During Thursday nieht all was quiet near
Frederick, though the rebel lines were within
a mile of the western limits of the city, occu
pying the country back as far as Knobby
Mountain. They consisted entirely of cavalry
and artillery, and are believed not to have
numbered more than fifteen hundred or two
thousand of all arms. f ?
Gen. Wallace, having been reinforced du
ring Thursday night, commenced an advance
on the enemy yesterday morning, when it was
ascertained that they were recreating towards
Middletown. He immediately started his cav
alry and mounted infantry, with Alexander's
battery, in pnrsnlt of them, driving them
nearly to Sonth Mountain.
About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon the
rebels again advanced on Frederick, said to
be considerably reinforced. At last accounts

We mentioned a tvw days ago that there
wre ^indications of tin immediate movement
on Mobile. The troops in the unfortunate ex
pedition under Gen. Banks have sailed from
New Orleans for some destination?wb?re, is
the question. Sixteen thousand men had lm3

up to the date of tb? latest adyice*. ((no opin
ion is that tbey have pore to reinforce Ocner vl
Grant?arother that tbey have moved to at
tack Mobile. The sudden landing of twenty
five thousand veterans under General Oaabv
at Mobile would make a stir among the rebels
under Johnston: should the IxJuisiana vete
rans be added to tbe army of the Potomac,
Grant will tbe sooner be able to press T^e t:>
extremity. The New Orleans expedition must
soon be heard from.
