Wamiiniiton, July 27. It is reported that
General Hunter's request to be relieved of his
rniuniund has been acceded to, and that General
Crook, who had just tieen appointed brevot
Major General, suceccds him.
Ibe llibel raid uiwnrs to have dwindled Into
a comparatively small atlnir. It is understood
that the Government is in receipt of information
that Hill's Rebel Corps, which was reported to
have reinforced Kany, is still at Petersburg, and
that the column which has been 0erating in the
valley is only a portion of that which partici-
fian a in the late invasion. There is a general
i cling here that the utl'.iir is about over, and that
when tho forces which are rti muff to the sceno
of action shall arrive the Kebels will lie gone. It
is certain that they have nntrm-sed the P'tomac,
and it Is believed that the ovacuation of Martina
burg as unnecessary.
There is a general sentiment here that prepara
tli ds should be made which will tor the future
prevent theso di(raceful stampedes, and that an
adeqna'e force should lie placed in the valley,
and Mich other dispositions made for defense, as
will render unnecessary these oft-recurring dis
play ot ability and celerity in tho evacuation of
Impoitant po-ts and the saving of (iovermm-nt
pioperty which has rharaeteried thus far our
tccupation of that important line.
Xenapnper Accountn.
M AKTi.vsnrno, July 2u At length the spell of
sili nee and inactivity was broken. Rumors cir
eulutid that the ltcbcls bad been reinforced. Tho
inlormation came through scouts, refugees, and
deserters. At first the strength was statatd as
being " a great many," then a division, and
finally a corps. In connection with these reports
came others, stating that a readvanco was in
tended, and that Longstrect would command the
whole Rebel column of the Slieuaudoah.
At no time was there a disregard manifested
on the part of our command as to these reports,
and in fact it was but a short time before they
were partially confirmed by tho readvanco of
Karly'a forces upon our own, and from behind
tlit. ir intrenched position at Winchester.
In the interim, while lire 'kinridgo was re
maining tolerably quiot at Winchester, Averill
was reinforced by cavalry under command of
Brigadier-General Dullle, and Infantry under
(ieneral Crook (now brevet major-general', the
latter ollker assuming tho direction of the cpe: "J
lions of tho w hole command. IU'
On Saturdar, the 2-1.1, the Rebels manifestem
dccideilly 'infrienlly" or iuiinisitive spirit, ro.
aovancing noon our lines, apparently tor tha
purpose of seeing where we we. e and what we
were doing. We returned the enemy's advances
by a few vidlcys.and subsequently by regnlar skir
mish. Nothing daunted Willi such a reception, the
perscveiing Rebel continued to "press his suit,"
eventually compelling us to seek another bivou
acking ground. On Saturday, in consequence of
the manner (by force of superior numbers) in
which the Kebels threatened an attack, oar
cuvalry fell hack upon the main army and pre
pared for action.
In the early part of Sunday morning tho
hitherto stillness of the day was broken by
sounds attendant on the rapid discharge of small
arms. This, of course, announced to us that the
Rebels were again advancing ; and accordingly a
very few minutes sutllced to get the whole com
mand In condition to repel an attack.
The first demonstration of tiie Rebels was
closely followed up by their causing a sharp con
flict between our own and tho lteliel cavalry.
Soon utter this the Rebels uncovered their infan
try, and brought it up in lino of battle for a
general engagement. We also formed in line of
The movement at this time were being eon
ducted ut a point situated about two miles from
bunker Hill, towards Winchester.
The battlo which was fought at this place lasted
all day ; that is, the engagement which was here
commenced was continued until dark, the enemy
in the ineauiime having by force of numbers
driven oiii men to within six miles of Martinsburg.
Soon alter the opeuingof tho engagement, as it
promised to lie a serious one, tho commanding
general made every possible preparation to make
a stund and light it out on ihe soot. But this was
MXin found to bo impracticable, because no sooner
bad we formed our lines than iho enemy's supe
riority in numbers gave him the very easy ad
vuutuge of outflanking us.
As we from time to time changed front (the
tiring both wi h musketry and cannon being at
the same time continued with all our etl'oc
tive force), the enemy moved up. Every possible
resistance to each new and luriher advance was
present, d. Tlnf Rebels ftaight with great obsti
nacy, and so did wc. They made dash after dash
witli their cavalry to turn our Hank; but did not
succeed. Some of the charges which they made
were promptly rendered abortive.
Hut in one grand charge wtiicu they executed,
and in which it was estimated that from twenty
to twenty-live thousand troops participated, we
lost beat ily iu prisinera. Resides these, we lost
eitiier four pieces or a whole butterv of artillery.
This charge decided the work of the day. Our
commanders saw they could d nothing against
the overwhelming odds ugaiust them, and re
solved to fall back slowly.
In the cluu'ge referred to, it is true that our
lines were for a few minutes broken, during
which time the Rebels took the uri-ouers aud
artillery; but the t'uiou forces rallied again, aud
Avcrill'a cavalry covered their unwilling retire
ment. The day's operations closed with each party
In line of battle ; the Rebels advauciug with buld
front and our men falling back iu good and per
fect order.
During the whole engagement Generals Crook
and Averill exerted themselves to the utmost to
secure success; but, unfortunately, the numbers
of the enemy were against tlirm.
Brhrndier-Qcnoral Dullle Is reported to have
been killed or wounded while at the head of his
brigade urging tho men not to give way, but to
do their duty like true soldiers.
Colonel Malligan I seriously wonnded, and a
prisoner in the bauds of the enemy. Just before
Colonel Mulligan was wounded a color sergeant
was killed, and he, accompanied by his brothor-
lu-i.w, iJicoicuni nngent, immediately rode
forward to proenre the colors. The Lieutenant
dismounted to pick np the colors, and, while in
this position, was mortally woanded. Colonel
Mulligan was Bounded about the same tine, and,
aa is reported, seriously iu two places..

The Star learns that the proper disposition
of troops was immediately made to check them
and to find out their Intentions. Artillery
firing commenced at Point of Rocks early on
Tuesday evening, and continued ull night.
Our lufiuitry butteries and gunboats were
said to be engaged, but most of the firing was
doubtlesa done by the gunboats, which were
shelling the banks of the river. Fighting was
also going on near LSerniuda Hundred, and it
was reported that the Rebels were posted
three miles from that place.
Parties who were at General Butler's head
quarters on Tuesday night state that the roll
of musketry and artillery was Incessant,
Yesterday morning, when the Drooka left
City Point, firing was still going on, but
seemed to have slackened.
Karly yesterday morning General Grant
was engaged In making a proper disposition
of his troops to foil any Rebul movement.
The twicers of the roots state that tho
firing heard on Tuesday night was more
heavy and Incessant than any they havo heard
during Grunt's campaign.

Pi. I.oi tH, July '-'N Tlie v wrr pibllshes
a lontr aeconnt of the eonspii y "n fie rei"lon
of a Northwestern Confvder , f ferri .i to a few
days since. The organization fi..u in this
conspiracy Is known an the "Order of American
Knights," and their object is to embarrass the
Government In tho conduct of the war, and to
overthrow the Ooveniment, if necessary for the
supremacy of tho order.
lis professions and purposes are different in
difftreut States. It proclaims a war policy in
New York, Penney Ivani.t, New Jersey, and other
Eastern States, while In tho West it Is for peace.
The order is of Southern origin, lieiiin erected
on the ruins of tho Knights of the Golden Circle.
Of the Southern orgatd.iition, General Hterlim;
rrlce is Supreme Commander. C. I.. Vallardig
ham, while in Illclimond, w is mado Rtipremo
t'ommunder of the Northern section of the order"
A complracy was entered into between him
and tho Kebel authorities, to divide the K;W
from tbo Went, and to Kivc aid to the Southern
He hellion.
Vullnudibam's time in f'niiiida, it Is said, was
principally spent in furthering this scheme. He
had a conference with some of the leading spirits
iu the North t-oon after his arrival in Canada, and
arranged for tho establishment of an order
throughout the loyul States. The names of all
who visited him at the Clifton Homo are known
to the Government. Among them the names of
Win. 11. Heed, of Philadelphia, Pendleton Tugh,
ofiOhlo, Keyblien, of St. Louis; Sterry aud Mer
rick, of Chicago, arc published.
The rcrults of this conference are also known
to the Government. About the 1st of January
Vallandigham issued an address to the members
of the Golden Circle In the loyal States, in which
he called upon them to renew their vows, and
said the time was fust approaching which would
test their sincerity ; that tho prosecution of the
war is in violation of the ri;;btsof tho States, and
President Lincoln is an usurper.
A meeting of tho grand commanders of the
different States was held at New York on the
22d of February, for the purpose of organizing
an outbreak on the 10th of March the day fixed
tor the draft; but no dcllnito plan was resolved
The namei of these cfc splrators are also
known. The same commanders :d a general
consultation with the supremo cornnuu
der at Windsor, Canada, early in April.
Amongst those in attendance wore McM.istor,
of Now York j Charles L. Hunt, St. Lonis; and
Lafayette Devlin, Indiana. The programme
adopted at tbcBe meeting was that Vallandig
ham should represent his district, of Ohio, in the
Democratic National Convention, and there pro
clulm the doctrine of the order, viz : Pronounce
the existing Administration of the Government
power usurped, which tho people had a right
to expel by force if necessary ; in fact, to inaugu
rate a rebellion in the North, and In which ho
was to lie supported by the Order. Each Grand
Commander was to have an armed bodyguard
at the Convention for the defense of Vnllundig
ham. This it was thought would precipitate the
people of the free States into armed conllict, and
would be tho signal for the memliers of tho order
to unite against the lawful authorities, kill or
capture tho civil and military authorities, sei.e
the arsenuls, arms, public property of all kinds,
and proclaim tho Government overthrown.
There is the most convincing evidence of the
truthfulness of this statement. The reason of tho
sndden return of Vallandigham to Ohio was the
fear of being defeated as a delegate to Chicago,
and it was only by his presence that his election
was secured.
The numerical strength of this order is said to
be considerably over half a million ; one hundred
and fifty thousand of tho whole are organized in
New York, and are culled MeCIellan Minute
Men, numbering over two hundred thousand.
The Grand Commander of Missouri is Charles
L. Hunt, a nephew of James II. Lucas, and for
many years the Tlclginn Consul, and the Deputy
Grand Commander, Charles E. Dunn, a city olll
ccrof St. Louis.
A long list of the mimes of the members of tho
order in the different States, together with full
information concerning the whole scheme, are In
the bands of the authorities at Washington, and
will probably be given to the public in a short

Washinoton, July 28. The Star says a gen
tleman from Mill Gap, Berkley county, Virginia,
arrived In this city this morning, and gives some
nteretting particulars of the recent Rebel demon
stration towards Martinsburg and the Potomac.
He says that after the first ficht near Win
chester last week, although the Kebeis wero de
feated, they were not so badly usel up but that
they were able to collect a considerable force.
It appears that Ihey concentrated at Buck
creek village, Frederick county, and advanced
thence on Sunday morning early through Mill
Gap, and halted at Bunker Hill, whence Wreck,
inridge took a force and moved in the direction
of Darkesville, and General Early, who appeared
to have command of the whole force, moved on
the pike towards Martinsburg.
Their diverging at Unaker Hill indicated
movement upon Uttrpei'i Ferry, m it was neces.
II I I A I 1
ary lo tms through Dirkrsi!lo to reach that
point. There is no doubt of Early ho'ng In com
mand, as he und lln'ct Intidir together with their
sfciflV, stopped at Vr. Hell's house a-. Mill lap.
Mr. Ilf 11 says that the Ueb Is had with tlicin
about 'J00 nr pr ies, us near as be could judge,
who were mounted, and aimed with sibres
and pistols. Among thee negroes he re.xig
nl.ed a number who bad been sla.es la the

There is no doubt but that Colonel Mulligan
died from the effects of wounds received on San
day. General Averill received a slight wound In
tho forehead at the same time, but not snthVleut
to prevent him from discharging his duties.
Tbe mail steamer John UrooUt has arrived
from City Point, which place she left yesterday
morning at ten o'clock. At that hour all was
Unlet in frontofPi'torsburg;on Tuesday afternoon
a movement of tho Rebel was discovered, which
although not fully developed, Indicated that they
were attempting to dank Ilutlcr on the right, or
were endeavoring to gain Harrison's Landing, for
the purpose of getting In his rear.
Tbo proper disposition of troops was imme
diately made to check the in and Und out thoir
Intentions. Artillery firing commenced at the
Point of Roeks early on the evening of Tuesday,
which continued all night. Our infantry batte
ries and gunboats were said to be engaged, but
most of the llrlng was doubtless dono by tho
gunboats, whieh were shelling the banks of the
river. Fighting was also going on near Bermuda
Hundred, and it was reported that tho Kebels
were pouted three miles from that place.
Yesterday morning, when the llrtxikt came
down the river, tho firing seemed to have slack
ened. Karly yesterday morning General Grant
was engaged in making proper disjiosltions of
bis troops to foil any Rebel movements. Reports
bronght to City Poiut from Richmond by re
fugees and deserters aro to the effect that
all the troops that can bo spared from tho de
fenses of that city have been sent up the valley,
and it Is believed that the forces operating in that
vicinity will number fifty thousand men of all
arms. Such refugees, however, aro not in a posi
tion to have any positive means of knowledge of
tlie Rebel movements, and tlielr statements aie
not by any means authoritative.

Tbenrethe command moved ea-stwurdly, de
stroying all the eulvertH and bridges to Opedka,
and literally removing the rai w ty at the station.
A truin si ut out by the Rebels to reconnoitre
waa raptured. Two hundred pounds of buoou,

of whu-ky, seven hundred sacks of H ur, aud
four hundred and titty bales of cotton, were
burned. The command then left for Nf trlctta,

no representation in the Ucnerul Confetvnc, shall
