THE LATE REBEL RAID.
Baltimore, July 15.?Some "knowing" Se
cessionists here assert that the recent rebel in
vasion was merely a reconnoissance, to ascer
tain the position and strength of the fortifica
tions at Washington and in Maryland. Dis
covering what they were, they merely retired
to the other side of the Potomac to await large
reinforcements, with which, when obtained,
they will invade us sgaia with an immense
armv, with Lee in command.
This may be mere braggadocio, but since
what has been done partakes more of truth
than fiction, it is well to be on the alert, and not
again be taken unawares.
Some straggling rebels are reported to hav?
been seen in Baltimore county last night.

?>We nre therefore in full sympathy with
those who deplore the growing laxity in the
habits of modern church-goers. There is to us
something sadly ominous in the thinness of the
alternoou congi egrations in many churches. It
signifies very plainly a gjeat letting down of
the ancient conviction that every one should
be at tbe house ot God during the hour of pub
lic worship. Even professed christians are
learning how to absent themselves from church
worship without compunction. It used to be
d-emed a species of Sobbath-breaking to stay ,
awnv from church without.excnse.
"We confess that we should be glad to have
the .-aine teeling beoome prevalent agaiu. But
so sealed lias the custom now become of ne
sleciing the afternoon service, that even min
isters have almost ceased to prpach against it
or derrerate it. As only a small congregation
can be exoectcd in the aflmoon, the best ser
mon?that which has been prepared with the
