The mail steamer John Brooks arrived here
this morning, at 6 o'clock, from City Point,
-which place she left yesterday morning at lo
o'clock. At that hour all was qnietin front of
Petersburg, bnt on Tuesday afternoon a move
ment of the rebels was discovered, which,
although not fully developed, indicated that
they were attempting to Hank Butler on the
right, or were endeavoring to gain Harrison's
Larding, for the purpose of getting in his rear.
Tile proper dirpobition of troops was imme
diately made to check them and find out their
Artillery firing commenced at Point of Rocks
early ? the eveuing of Tuesday, which con
tinned all night. Our infantry, batteries, and
gn?hoat? were said to be engaged, bnt the most
of the firing was doubtless done by the gun
boate, which were shelling th? banks of the
Fighting wns also going on near Bermuda
llnndred, and it was reported that the rebels
?were posted three miles from that plac?.
Parties who were at General Butler's head
quarters on Tuesday night state that the roar
of mnsketry and artillery was incessant.
Yesterday morning, wbea the Brooks came
down the river, liiicg was still going on, bnt
stemfd to have slackened.
Early yesterday morning Gen. Grant was
engaged in making proper disposition of his
trcops to foil any re*l movement.
The officers attached to the John Brooks
state that the firing beard by them on Tuesday
Bight was more heavy and incessant than any
tfiey have heard during Grant's campaign.
Reports brought to City Point from Rich
mond by retugees and deserters, are to tlie
eflect that all the troops tbat can be spared
from the defence of that city have been sent
up the Valley, and it is now believed that the
forces operating in that vicinity will number
fifty thousand mtn of all arms. Such refugees,
however, aje not in a position to have any
positive tne&in of knowledge of rebel move
ments, and their statements are not by any
means authoritative, theretore.

The telegraph lines to Baltimore being under j
an embargo by the Government, we avail i
ourselves of the following information derived
f.om a well informed gentleman of that city, j
ia regard to the important military movements !
now transpiring on the Upper Potomac.
With the particulars of the abandonment of
the pursuit of the raiders by the 6th corps the
public are already familiar. It is now clearly
ascertained that as soon as the tact of the re
turn of the oth corps toward Washington was
announced, the rebels availed themselves of
the important advantages thus presented, and
tbeir rear fell upon Gen. Crook's command
n>-nr Winchester with such overwhelming
numbers as to compel tbat gallant offi er to
retreat, loeinz a cousideraole number ot men
in kiRtd, wounded and prisoners, as well a- a
lew guns. The loss in men is estimated at one
thousand. From all that onr informant could
gather, there were but lew guns lost, though
there seems to te no doubt that the enemy did

at Baltimore yesterday, but therein no authen

Wuh rtgard to tfte strength of theenemv,
the most reliable estimates of the entire force
compoeing the recent laiding column do not
m*ke it more than 1<M*4 or 17,0 0 men. It is
now believed this column has tven reinforced
to the extent of 10,00V or 12 00o, making the

Advertiser of yesterday evening says:
The stock market opened with a stron^r
feeling, ard at the call there was an a1 vance
: through the entire list. The sales were 1'.r^er
than lor some weeks past, and a vigorous s ;jf c
nla-lve movement was apparent on some of
the railroad stocks. There is more inquiry for

The withdrawal of the temporary loan by
the banks has necessitated a 1 irge farther is
sue of compound Interest notes?the increase
of circulation under this head being $lo.WO,(XiO.
This illustrates the Injurious operation of the
; temporary loan expedient invented by Mr.
! Chase. The banks have been lending to the
Government in this way to the u'most of their
ability. A stringent turn in the money mar
ket compels them to withdraw #10,00(1,00;)
within a week. The Government has no re
sources in the Treasury for meeting such a
draft, and the Secretary has, therefore, to fall
back upon his unissued currency. The tem
porary loan has thns resulted in an addition
to the circulation of ten millions within one
There remains now g63,000,o<io of this loan
outstanding, at any time subject to a heavy
draft, which, as the Treasury keeps no ad
equate reserve to meet such a contingency,
would have to be met by the still lurther cre
ation of currency. The direct tendency of the
loan is thus to foster inflation. It is a con
i stant terror-m over the head of the Secretary,
i and the sooner he offers some practical in

the debt, the bttter it will prove for all par -
The Evening Express says:?The subscrip

| snows tDat the Government are paying ont
compound rates, which mnst float as currency
for sometime to come. The banks are in a
strong posi'ion and money is flowing in here
j from the interior.
There was a sharp revival of the speculative
feeling at the Stock Exchange this morning, and
, there was a large advance throughout the en
tire Railway lit-t.
There is a strong demand for stocks general
ly, under the prevailing opinion that a higher
range of values must rule in the t utur?.
There was an active demand for Govern
ments on foreign acconnt, and there was a
lurther advance in prices.
The gold market was very tame this morn
irg, and fell off about 4 per cent, from the
closing rate of yesterday. The immense re
shipments for foreign merchandise, and the
large amounts of Government securities going
abroad create a great volume of exchange,
which materially lessens the demand for gold.

Mulligan Undoubtedly Killed on Sunday
?frrpu ration* to give the Rebels u Warm
j Reception Should they Attempt tp Cross
i We have direct information from Hagers
I town, Md., up to? o'clock yesterday morning.
Tbe Confederals had made no attempt up
I to yesterday morning to cross the river, al
; though their pickets occupy the Virginia shore
I opposite \Yilliamsport, and occasionally Are
acrofs the river at our troops.
There is no donbt that Col. Mulligan died
fiom the effect? of wonnds rece.ved on Sunday.
Gen. Averill received a slight wound in the
forehead at the same time, but not sufficient to
| prevent him from discharging his duties.
Union reinforcements are arriving at the
proper place, and are being assigned to availa
ble positions. Should the rebels attempt to
cross'he river they will meet with resistance
equal to the occasion.
There is regular communication between
Hagerstown and Frederick, and the cars are
running from Hagerstown to Chambersburg.
Notwithstanding the excitement at Hagers
town, business is still transacted, but the store,
keepers have but few goods exposed for sale,
as they have received no stock since the recent
THE RECENT REBEL DEMONSTRA
Early and Breckinridge in Command?
They Move In Two Columns, toward
Martinsburg and llnrkesville ? Colored
Soldiers with the Raiders.
Mr. John K. Hell, of Mill (rap, Berkeley
j county, Ya , arrived In this city this mirningi
| and gives some interesting particulars of the
' recent rebel demonstrations towards Martins
burg and the Potomac He says that after the
fight at Winchester last week, although the
n bels were defeated, tbey were not so badly
used up but that they could collect a consider,
It appears that they concentrated at Buck
Cre< k village, in Frederick county, and ad
vanced thence on Saturday morning early
through Mill Gap, and halted at Banker Hill,
whence Breckinridge took a force and moved
in the direction of Darkpsville, and Gen. Early
(who appeared to have command of the whole
lOTcej moved on the pike toward Martinsburg.
Their diverging at Bunker Hill indicated a
movement upou Harper's Ferry, a* it was ne
cessary to mov? through Darkesville to reaca
that point. Ther- is no doubt of Early being
in command, as he and Breckinridge, together
with their staffs, stopped at Mr. Bell's house
at M 11 Gap.
Mr. Bell says the rebels had with them about
2<!ti negroes, as near as he could judne, who
were mounted and armed with sabers and pis
tols. Among these negroes tie recognized a
number who had been slaves in the neigtibor
hcod ol Mill Gap, and who appeared to be
pointing out the way to the reb<*l Generals,
and indicating the best roads to bj taken.
Passengers who arrived here last evening
from Frederick report that considerable excite
ment exists at that place, and that many of the
citizens are leaving. Business is almost en
tirtly suspended, and yesterday morning the
banks were all closed, and there were but few
stores open. The Government property and
hospital stores have all been removed to a
pla^e of salety.
.Reports were current at Frederick yesterday
morning that the rebels, in large force, were
drawn up in line of battle at Harper's Ferry,
menacing our forces on the Maryland Heights.
There can be no truth in this, however, as the
regular train from Harper's Ferry reached
Baltimore last evening.
A REPORTED CROSSING BV THE REK1LS
ABOVE MCDDY RRANCH ? A OANaRD
A larmer arrived here last night from above
Muddy Bianch, and stated that some of the
rebels crossed the river on Tuesday night, and
threw out pickets between Muddy Branch and
Edwards' Ferry on the Maryland side, and
that be was in their lines until two o'clock yes
terday morning, when he got away. He repre
sents that there were but few who crossed.
This story is, however, not credited, and, in
deed, we have good authority for stating that
no rei>ei;5 have crossed this side of Edwards'
Ferry at least.
