KO ENEM NORTH OF THE POTOMAC, Rprofal to Th Kvpulnic Tlo(f rnpli. QBaltimohk, July 27. Our morning papers have very little news, and nothing dcllaltc from points along the Upper Potomac. No additional news has reached as this morning, except some reports that the Rebels have evacuated Martins. hurg, and that no turned Rebels have yet crossed the Fotomac into Maryland. A largo force is understood to be on the south side of tho Poto mac, not far from Harper's Ferry. Uencrat 'Wallace feels conlidcnt of success iu his knnwlerica of Affairs, lint, forldil the riiilillcNtum of exciting rumors, or even facts, that might give the movements of troops. The Impression still prevails that the Kebcls purpose invading the Cumberland valley of Pennsylvania for plunder. In the absence of published fresh rumors there Is less excitement here. The Baltimore and Ohio Raliroad runs to Harper's Ferry regularly, and the telegraph also works. Although the aspect Is less tlireatouing, it may be only the calm be fore the storm. NEWSPAPER ACTOl JfTS. EXCITEMENT IN BALTIMORE. YS . . T , rn n rs m. i , D&d ihukg, jiiiy u, if i . ju. i ncre is consid erable excitement in the city to-night over the news concerning the recent army operations in the Shenandoah valley. The reports that huvo tienn receiver! nrp verv liulnlinlto nti.l tint, titifr.t- qnentiy contradictory in their details. A FALSE MOVK. The withdrawal of the pursuing column, eoin- posed of the fith and 19th Corps, which staited from Washington, and which had fallen luck in the direction of Uockvllle and l'oolcsvillo, seems to have been premature, and to have alforded tho enemy an opportunity to couecntrate their forces against Hunter, who still continued the pursuit down the valley. It is reported that in an en gagement tho Rebels forced him back to Har per's Ferry with considerable loss. Tho state ment, however, that two regiments of cavalry and two batteries of artillery were captured is said to ne erroneous. CClfATION OF MAHTINSIll'BO THE HAII.IIOAD AND TKLllOHAl'll. , An otliccr direct from Harper's Ferry Informs me that Martinstjurg was occupied by the enemy ' last night, and this morning the Kebcls again were set to work destroying tho railroad. At tho time of his departure the telegraph wires had not yet been disturbed. It is supposed the Rebels , nau a policy in allowing me wires to remain m- , tact. lucre are facilities In the, possession ot tho . enemy tor taking the mossages from tho wires, . and it is supposed this is tho cause why the tele- , graphic communication has been luft undisturbed. mere are no trains runuing uence west ol I no Ferry.

The report that tie Hcbels had crossed tho river at Shep pardstown Is untrue.

A report was brought here this morning by a panicky horse contractor of heavy fighting yes terday at Ficdcrick, resulting adversely to us. The above facts show the falsity of this report. It appears that the Itcbel authorities again allow alims to pass through their iu7s) as quite a large number of thco refugees have reached this city, within the past few Jays.

Without doubt a majority of the disastrous fires which have occurred lu-this and other cities of tho Union during the present month have resulted from incendiarism. The stunners burned at St. Louis wore destroyod by ltebel cmissnrirs, whilo in the case of a largo number of factories and warehouses burned, the enemies of the Government have ulso hid a hand.

This portion of our army, les than one-thir l of the whole, met the in ! reckless, maisivc, an I headlong charge of the war, without yielding an inch, ac a little on one of tho thinks of Ueary's JihiMon. where a gap in tho line oe-iii-red, and hfre tho rnriny presicd thr.mirli, but was rpeerllly cheeked The att ick was mndn tiy nrnrly the whole of the Rebel army, and ita com plete repulse forms the mint glorious chapter in Sherman's present campaign. The following are the details o( the tight : y nr readers aheadv know.onr whole winy had rfl'ei kd the crohsimr of I'eaeh Tree ere k, a mull hut diltliult stre.mi covciing Atl inta on the north and partially on the east. Alter tho crowing, which was avtnally completed by tho morning ot tue '-'Otli, our left, under M -I'liersnn, rc-.td n the Augu-t iKallMad, south of Decatur, and aliout fivo miles from Atlanta. Tho lltli Corps was on the extreme rieht, near the mou'li of Teach Tree creek. On the left of tho lith (or in was the 2itth forps. On tho left of the lit ter Newton's Division of the 4th Corpi. A gup then occurred In our Hues for three miles, which was covered on the south hank of the creek by a curtain of pickets from Newton's Dlvisl, n. On the. loft of the gap was concen trated the rest of our army, several divisions oil ginally on the right having been moved th to early on the morning ot the 2ilth, with a view to irenginrning tunc wmr, Instead of witirh tho mi my made numerous leints, as it' about to pr. cipiiate his whole urinv nirainst it. The enemy thus being, during the morning of lucrum, iunsseii on our icir, oruers were issued to New ton, Hooker, and Palmer, on the right, to advance and close the gap of three miles, Nek ton, on the left, was ordered to move first, pro- ircoiiK uts icii riauH iiyinorrcrK. Micecssive v II V..-' ..lll-l , . . iuoi i s auu i aimer s corps were io close upon Newton, and establish a new liuc as far as possi ble in advanec of the trenches, which thoy had constructed a half mile south of I'eurh Tree creek iinineihatcly alter crossing. Accordingly, ah ut 1 1'. M., Newton deployed live regiments as skir niirhirs, and pushed lorwatd handsomely, drty. inauiimu9 ui inn etieiii.v 9 snarpsnooters U'jlore tin ni, and scattering their skirmish reserves. By 3 I". M. he he had advanced three fourths of a ndlc and carried a prominent ridgo iu his rront, on which, after senuing fresh skirmish liues for wnrc, he prtMCeded to establish bis division. His troops nnslung knaps.u k, staeked arm, and fell to erecting a rail barricade with a will. Hooker now advain cd from ids trenches. Hut. terlield's Division, now commanded by (ieiier.tl Ward, on the left, deary in centre, and General Wiliums on the right. 1'iiimer prepared to close up on Hooker, whenevor the latter should estab lish his now line. The country over which this advance was progressing is partly rolling and open, Intersected with d ttieult creeks, and p ir tially covered with dense undergrowth. In the advance, pii-oners were captured nt dllferent points along tho line, who unanimously stated that no considerable body of their troops was nearer than a mile and a half. They were, be yond doubt, sent out to be captured for this pur pose. Not less than three-four. hs of the entire, Hebcl army were concealed within musket-shot ot our skirmishers. At the amc time, at 3-10 P. M., and with the celirily of lightning, the Rebel host poured forth from their concealment, massed In enormous columns, against Newton, coining on with skir mish rs, and with ye'ls whose volume exceeded those of any battle-shout I ever heard. New ton's Division had hut half completed their barri cade, and they barely had time to fall into lino and seize thtir guns b. fore the entire il-mc, column, composed of Walker's and Dale's Divi sions 01 Hardee's Corps, wore within range. The pickets guarding the interval between the light and left of our army bixciy escaped cipturo by plunging into I'eaeh Tree creek anil swimming a -ro:S. The enemy had struck us at tho vital spot, just where a victory for him might bo de cisive. Newton had more wound to guard than he could cover hy even a single lino. For the first tew minutes everything hung trembling in the scale. Newton's loft Hank was exposed, and just covered his bridges across Peach Tree creek. Hud it given away, tho bridges would have been lost, and our whole rjght might huve hern rolled up and forced back to the Chattahoochee river. The Rebel plan wan todef-trovour forces on the right, utter which their army would be strong enough to confront, if rot defeat, the main body of our army on the h it. Long lines of darkies, with paek-saddlos, and other non-combatants, came pouring across the bridges with sweat running oil' of them in rivulets. Guards with fixed bayonets wero phi. 'cd at tho bridges to collect whatever arm d etragnlors might apiwar, but none camo. In pile of the furious charge none of our troops were stamjiedcd. The Rebel column poured down on an open but rough scries of fields in wards Newton's left, evidently aiming at his bridges. At tho time the enemy first appeared we had but two pieces of artillery In position, guarding theAital poiut; but Captain Goodspeed, New ton's chief of artillery, with splendid quicknoss, brought np ten more guns, making in all twelve. 'Ihiy opened with canister, the gunuers working wi h frantic energy. Four guns went into action on Newton's right. Up lo the moment the guns opi ne d, the Rebel columns bad swiftly advanced, engnclng Newton's three reduced brigades at tcirible odds. It was wonderful how fast the enemy lost his grip when sixteen guns added their blast to the storm of bullets from Newton's infantry. Tbo dusky, grey columns slackened their puce, and begau to w aver and lose, their ran fill arrangement. In a few minutes they Iliad ccrr.e to a stnnd-siill, iu partial confusion, and lirirg heavily but wildly. Color-bearer after color-liearer went down Under the crash of our canister. Iu vain the Hi Lei field olllcers rodo up and down tho lines waving swords and exhorting the men not to falter. In twenty minutes theassault h id totally failed, and the enemy gave way, retiring in coa lition to the woods from which they had enierucd. For tho rest of tho afiernoou they kept up a desultory fire, which was returned by our artillery, but they did not venture to renew the aitack. The Rebel General Stoveus, c itn noinding a brigade in Walker's Division, was killed. Ncnrly two hundred Hebcl dead ivuro btiiied In Newton's front next morning. His In i uilc did not yield an inch. General Ward's Division, on Newton's right, was struck at tho Juine moiui nt as New ion. General Ward bad just baited his men a' the fcotol a hill for a bricl rest, alter his skirmishers had made way to the crest. Word eatno back to him tlmt the cm my was charging over the open field in his fi opt iu immense force. Without a til's mt m's hesitation, Ward ordered his division to nuet the enemy with a counter-charge; his men moved up the hill in splendid order an 1 when ihiy gained the crest they wero so close to tho Ki I, els that several of tho hostilo regiments be came intermingled. At such points the Rebels seemed addled by Ward's bold ioui, and were captured without difficulty. On other portions of the line, lighting at close iuarters continued for half an hour, but each successive line of Robcls was pressed back by the indubitable valor of Ward's men. At the end of that time tho Rebels fell buck into a dense forest in their rear, com pletely whipped to far as General Ward's Division was concerned. General Ward's trophies are seven Rebel battle-Hags and three hundred prisoners, Including many of the enemy's wounded left on the held. Among bis prisoner are representatives of si x teen regiments, and be no doubt fought don id that number. Ward sent all of his availabl aitillery to protect Newton's Hank, and his splen did triumph was achieved with mu-kcts alone. The charge swept along to the right, striking (ieary's Division tbo next after Wood's. Goury had advanced half a mile from tbo trenches he occupied in the morning, and had just marched bis troops to the top of a ridge, when the Helstd columns were thrown on him with terrible vio lence. The 33d New Jersey, which was thrown out lo fortify a hill in advance of ths main line, lost over half its numlier in ihe first few minutes of the charge. The most of Geary's lines were through a dense wood, and his right Hank was exposed by an Interval of twoorlhrco hundred j ards, which Williams' Division was endeavor ing to close. When the enemy came on, General lllnos Brigade, onJGcary's right, was speedily enveloied on ihe right and rear, aud tell back, after a stout fight, to (he trenches it occupied in the morning, where it was reformed. Portions of Colonel Ireland's brigade In the centre were socnliladod ard driveu back, by turning ono of his batte ries fiom the front to the right, General Geary succeeded in reforming bn shattered line, where It stood, aud not another loot did it yield, rolling buck charge after charge. From four o'clock till lone alter dark, the Rebels endeavored to force their way through the f ap they had oponed, hut the pluck of onr lads triumphed. (Jeiry held the hill at the end as at the beginning of the a stult. That portion of his lino th it fell ba k was re-formed, and ina'iontiin hour went back Into action on (General Williams' right. The tremendous It-i bcl ass inltspent Its fury on Gineri.l U illiams' Divl'ion, next on Geary s rip ht. This division hud advanced also about half a mile when tho Itchels wcit np-m It. The shock w. is met w ithout flinching. Tho division rcli sfd to give an inch, and though the enemy made three s vi rail charges on it lie fore nii'hlfail it repulsed them all without wavering, though In doing fo it sustained heavier ln-s than anv other division on the right. The lighting on this part of our line wns In dense woods. The nltack grazed tl.o left of Palmer's Corps, wl ich had not It ft its trenches, but was prepar ing to do so Colonel Anson Modiok's lirigide was part ally engaged, Isrhavini? nobly, nnd re pulsing the enemy from beginning to the en I. About '.) 1'. M the enemy abandoned the tight In front of Ocnrviiiid Williams, c iirying oil many of their dead and wounded, and falling back to their heavy works about a mile distant, lu front of Ward and New ton, h ? was compelled to leave n I the dead and severely wounded. Judging from ercat pis lirapcd np there, the em my lost In killed and wounded nlotic over live thousand. We captured iiIhui' one thousand p isomrs. Hie loss in Hooker's Corps (oi'.ielni) is as follows; Williams' Division. t'.'7 ; Gcii-v'h, 4'i7 ; Waid's. 627 ; total, liill. Newton's Divi "ion (nttieialj, 102; ll:h t orps, 2 H). Total Iom, M13. The statement that our troops were hi fortifica tions is untrue. Thcv were advancing to take, a new position when attacked, and save w ith New ton, who had some half-finished rail barricades, the fight was an open one. Kven the aggressive Hood is not fool enough to attack us In tren lies. Prisoncis were captured trom every corps in the Uebel army, all of whom said the programme was to ilnve us into the Chattahoochee river, and that neiiily their entire army was engaged. Dining the progress of tho fight various corpi on tho left advanced over a mile, Mcpherson lit nightfall being w ithlii two and a half miles of Atlanta, and no portion of our lines more than four miles distant. I left the front July 21, nt 2 P. M. ; nt that time our right was established on the baitle-licld about four miles from Atlanta; the left was within long ranco shelling disnmce. Tho enemy stuck closely to his heavy works girdling the town, a mile or two outside the suburbs. kii.tr.li.
