Federal Ioes In the fight at New Creek yester
day was 29 killed and 50 wounded.

A dispatch from Greencastle, at 8 p. m.,
states that a gentleman who had just arrived
there says he saw the rebels crossing at Wll
liamsport between 0 and 7 o'clock this morn
ing, and that they consisted of bet ween six and
eight thousand infantry and cavalry.
Occupation of Hhgerstown Confirmed.
Harrihbttro, August 5.?The occupation of
Hagerstown is confirmed by official dispatches.
Three regiments of cavalry and two of in
fantry are strongly posted in and around the
town. The expedition being accompanied by
infantry is a strong Indication that it is the ad
vance of a large body, as no marauding party
is accompanied by such troops. After crossing
at Shepherdstown, It appears that the enemy
pasted through Sharpsbnrg and Funkstown.
So sudden was the descent upon Hagerstown
that the operator, who communicated the tact,
was compelled to leave in a hand-car, closely
pursued by a cavalry force He was in range
of their revolvers for a considerable time, and
only escaped after hard work at the wheels.
We are still in telegraph communication
with the State Line, a station on the Franklin
railroad, seven miles north of Hagerstown.
The operator there states that the rebels in
Hagerstown have thrown out pickets, but as
yet have made no further advance movements.
Harribburg, August 5.?We had telegraph-,
ic communication from this point with the
State line at eight o'clock this evening. The
communication does not extend beyond Green
castle, the rebels having entered Mlddleburg,
eleven miles north of Hagerstown. In what
force they occupy Mladleburg is not known.
It is presumed that they nave moved the five
regiments which entered Hagerstown this
The movements of the rebels are utterly in
explicable, and they seem determined to invest
their operations with as much mysterv as pos
sible, both as to numbers and the columns they
are advancing, and the points at which they
design to deliver blows. As an evidence of
this fact, at the same time the five regiments
already alluded to are advancing towards
Chamberfburg, another column is reported
moving up the Potomac in the direction of
Cumberland, the strength of which none of our
officials have been able to learn.
A report has just reached these headquarters,
telegraphed trom Bedford, to tbe effect that
passengers by stage who reached that borough
represent that a fight took place at Cumberland
on Thursday, resulting in a loss of 20 killed
and 30 wounded of the Federal forces. No
other particulars are given.
SUCCESS OF STOMEMAS'S RAID.
Defeat of Wheeler.
Loxjibvillb, Aug. 3.?The Nashville Union
ol to-day says : Apparently well-authentica
ted but official information has been received
that General Stoneman not only cut the Macon
railroad, but defeated the Rebel Wheeler at
Proctor Creek; that the latter lost from 500 to
1,000 men in the fight, and his dead and wound
ed fell into our hands.
Nashvillk, Aug. 3-?General Stoneman's
raid along the Macon railroad met with a great
success in cntting the Bebel line of communi
cation, and thus completely isolating Atlanta.
But I regret the necessity to add that one divis
ion ?f cavalry, while returning met with a se
The Macon railroad was torn up for eighteen
miles, the rails twisted, the ties, tanks, bridges
and depots barned, and the road rendered use
less for months to come.
Returning by way of Newman, capturing a
large wagon train, filled with much valuable
private property belonging to rebel officers,
and among other property were General
Woods' papers and a quantity of whiskey, all
of which fell into the hands of the general and
his forces. , ? _
About this time the rebels, under Gen. Ran
som, attacked Gen. McCook. and a fight en
sued, In which McCook's Command were
routed, and the greater part of them captured.
About five hundred of the troops have reported
at Marietta, and give fearful stories of losses.
The command, at starting, numbered about
three thousand two hundred. Gen. McCook is
reported killed. ?
Nashvillb, August 4.?Gen. Stoneman sent
a force of cavalry, composed of Large's and
I.agrange's brieades, 3.2U0 strong, on the 20th
ult., under command of Edward McCook, to
destroy the Macon and Western Railroad.
They had destroyed 19 miles of the road and
started to captnre a*train of 500 wagonB going
from Atlanta to Macon or Columbus. McUoofc
captured this train near Newman, with 500
men, Including 127 officers. The magazines
were laden with valuable stores, including
liquors and private papers of Gen. Hood and
? After possessing themselves of what they
v^mted the wagons were burned. McCook
then started to return with his prisoners and
three thousand mules, but was overtaken by a
rebel force, under General Ransom, so large as
to completely surround him. A desperate
engagement followed, during which many of
McCook's men escaped and found their way
to Marietta. The number of Federals cap
tured, it is supposed, will not reach two thou

The United States steamers Niagara and Sa

The Army and Navy Gazette has editorial
speculations on the Confederate invasion of

Confederates was in the neighborhood of At

Extraordinary Railroad Accident.
Norribtown, August 4.?A singular railroad
accident, but fortunately not attended with any
loss of life, occurred on the Reading road
about a mile below this place this afternoon.
Two coal trains were following each other,
moving north. The leading train stopped sud
denly, and its rear train was immediately
struck by its successor; at least a dozen empty
coal cars being broken and thrown in all di
rections by the concussion.
Some of these cars obstructed the adjacent
track, down which the express passenger train
lrom Pottsville and Harrisburg came within
one minute of the collision of the coal trains.
The engine of the passenger cars dashed
through the obstructions with the loss only of
its ornaments, but the succeeding baggage and
express cars were not so fortunate, but were
thrown from the track, overset, and broken
into fragments, with all their contents.
The neighboring telegraph poles and wires
were all destroyed. Tne breaking of the coup
ling between the express and emigrant cars
alone saved the entire train with three hun
dred passengers lrom destruction. The ac
cident was one against which no foresight
could have provided, and the manner In which
it occurred was extraordinary. The passen
gers from the express train reached the city by
wt.y of the Philadelphia, Oermantown. and
