Tbe excitement bore ts now at fever heat. Tbs Union Men are fleeing before tbe advance of the enemy, from tbe sountry into lbs town, to gsl, if possible, out of tbe reach sf tbe rebels, and many from toe town are escaping to wards Baltimore.

TDK OCCUPATION OF FREDERICK BY TUB HEBF.iX? PABT1CULAH8 OF THEIR MARCH?THEIR RAID UPON LIVE CATTLE AND PROV18ION8?RAQUKD APPEAR ANCE OF THE REBEL ARMY?FLIGHT OF LOYAL This place is full of cxciting rumors?all of an alarming nature. You hear at one moment that tbe rebel cavalry is within three miles of the town; at another, that tbey are b.-iwecn here and Baltimore; and then again tb.il tbey have just occupiod Frederick. The truth is, the fears of tbe people in every town in this State at present uiake them credulous as well as circulators of the most improbable reports. Tbe condition of this town in this respect may be taken as a sample of the whole Stale of Maryland. To-day I am in possession of facts which settle tbe question, not only about the invasion of Maryland by the rebels, but also about their occupation of Frederick. Tbe last irain left tbe Junction this morning, and brings the unpleasant intelligence. From passengers and others by this train with whom 1 bave conversed tbe following statement of tbe evacuation Of Frederick and the Junction and their occupation by tbe rebels has been obtained H appears that tbe forceof tbe enemy which crossed ibe river on Friday was merely their advance guard, consist lug of iwe or three battalions of cavalry, a baltery of rifled cannon and a small supporting column of infaot ry?perhaps a brigade. On the evening of Friday they crossed to much heavier force, ibe result of the recou" noisaance of tbe advanoe guard having been made known, probably, to the General in command, who is supposed to be Bill. Having crossed the river with tbe mam body of tbis column at Nolan's ford, tbe advance guard, reinforced to a strength of eight thousand men, marched, to tbe oool ef tbe evening, towards Frederick. It was after dark when they reached Buckeyes town, where tbey posted their pickets in all directions and bivouacked for the night. Meanwhile foraging parties ware sent out in all directions, who drove to largo quantities of beef cattle, negroes to slaughter and cook them, hogs, sheep, fowl, he. They al<*> brought in abundance of other previsions to their bivouac, not forgetting intoxicating liquors and salt wherever they were to be found, regardless of tbe prier claims of former posse users or anything olr ? Tbe fence rails made tbe bivouac fires, and lor the first time to a long while tbe secesb had evidently a Jolly night of it, though at tho expense of tbe unfortunate people they came to liberate. Thus did the rebels commence the hbc.-atioB Of Maryland. Thus did they give them the first taste of tbe rule of Jeff. Davis and tbe Southern confederacy. In tbe mgbl the bivouac was enlarged and extended, and it is suppeed that ibe man body bad npw joined l&eir rollick ing advance guard. As this was the army of liberation, and tbe rebels are liberal tellows under certain circum stances, no doubt ibe main body soon participated in the festivities of the occasion. "What did tbey look like?" said 1 to a loyal Mary lander wbo managed to escaj-o from their liocsand make his way to Baltimore. "They looked like secesb," said b?; "regular rebels out and out, with right smart of rags about them, and very little of anything else." It seen.s that tbe main body of ibis force cro^d ,st Nolan s ferry, which is about four miles below tbe Point of Rocks. In pursuance of orders, Captain Faithful, tbe Provost Marshal at Frederick, removed about one third of tbe stores at Frederick; but before more could be sent for ward it was found necessary to leave or else become prisoners of war. The balance of ibe stores were there fore. on tbe afternoon of Friday, committed to tbe flames, ami Frederick ?u immediately afterwards evacuated by our troops. The Junction was also evacuated, and all the Btnrrs. tents, camp eq'iipage, cannon, he.,at thai point safe'y transferred to Monrovia Station?a point <? the railroad about twenty three miles from Baltimore, where tbey are now encamped, awaiting the further advance o> tbe desperate enemy Few persona bare managed to escape beyind the rebel lines wherever tbey have advanced them, and those wbo do report that ibey allow no one to leave their noes rn any pretence whatever. This ts another taste of " libera lion" for Maryland. This morning, before the break of dny. tbe enemy hav ing sent forward his scouts previously,and been informed that Frederick was evacuated, resumed bis line ol march t 'wards tlie picturerque and hitherto prOF|?>rous and pVasant tittle city. Early in lbs meriting tbo town was oceuj led by 8.000 of tbe rebciS. and amorg the Orrt to enter it were the lirsi Maryland rebel regt mcnt. lolonel Bradley Johnston, who oemtnards mis reg.ment. is a native of Frederick. He was tbe first lebel to enter the town. The access iOBisui in Frederick, of course, turned out in fell rtiength to mo-l ihtlr friends, and tlie display of rebel rugs was proportionately large Further than this, and the uajili.ro of the government telegraph operator Mr. Keity at >redeiic.k. I have no intelligence of lbs dcirgs of thr rebeis in ibe city after their occupation of it. Tbeir nex* move was towards the Junction, which they also round evacuated. Whether ibey have advanced farther it.is way or not 1 have no information. It may be c.rcndered strange tbi.t tbe ret* Is have neither damaged the railroad nor tbe telegTapb They haye. however, broken down tbe dam on the canal, near UM Pointer Rocks This effectually closes tbe naviga tion of the canal for a score of m.lee or upwards, not.I an opportunity is aBorded for reconstructing tbs dam. It is questionable whether the principal column of the relets advanced from Virginia to Frederick. If it diC? however, it is more than probable thai an advance of our army in its rear will result in bugging tbe greater (art ef It. aid probably end the nlx.iicu faster it.an anything else could end it. Ibe chances thai the r?bel* can either make a successful advance to Bali imore. or a sale retreat, with plunder, frcm tbe Inxur.ant ooot :-es n wh.cb tbey have now so boldly and desi?raiely p.tc bod their ramps, are of the very tiniest nature. Even if this raul <s not or e by the main body of the rebel ii'tny it can only res ilt d K.st sly to the rebellion in a proportionate degree ! Aboil i nc thousand Vaton nhabitarts altogether have k>.t Frederick for safety from the well known tyran | ny of rebel rule. OUB RALTlMORr: CORRESPONDENCE. TBI HKBKI P CMfS AT l.ltl^KI'HA?

It ?irae ibM Um Potomaa waa crossed yesterday morning, tt three points oeer Lseeborg, by a strong fore* at rebal cavalry, ar tillery ud Intutrr. At tbaaa points UM rtwr ? ao low that tbo troope forded without any trouble, tbe infantry soldiers jumping from on* atone to another, and the mIM never raaihlng tbe axaltreea or tbo bobs of the oanfMi wheels. Tbo object of tbia crossing waa to roooonottro In tbe neighborhood of Poolesville, with a view to fur lb* operations. Tbe rebel foroee wbo oroaoed were aem mandad by General llill. General Bran, with a SHU larger force, remained at Lessburg. According to the beat acoounts the rebel programme, sa set forth in my letter of yesterday, wrtl now be tmw diately carried out, ao far aa it io in tbe power of General Lee 10 do ao. That part of tbe rebel army which la den tinal for tbo invasion of Maryland la now massed at Lees burg, and is ao doubt very strong. It la not in tbe power of our army to prevent the rebate from creasing the Potomac, if they wish to do ao, and th? probability is that they will croes, and commence the execution of their programme oitbor to-day or to-morrow. Tbe capture of Baltimore is quite another matter. There are plenty of people here who would like to mo Baltimore occupied by a rebel army. There are hundreds of bright eyoa hero that would sparkle with delight a^ tbe sight of General Lee's body guard prancing pwt tbe monument. But the Unionists are in the majority ; awl, what :S of far greater consequence, Baltimore is no longer defenceless There are several forts around the city which it would be necessary to lake before Raltnrioei could bo captured. Fort McHsnry would be of little ut-o, as it is on tbe wrong side of tbe city to defend it froru a land attack. The fort on Fedoral Hill, however, eoulrt annoy large masses of the enemy considerably. It la loudly proclaimed here that if Baltimore falls inUi the hand* of the rebel army the guna of the two latter forts will utterly destroy the city. Even If Baltimore in occu" pied by the rebels, it wui be but for a very brief period. Too much praise caui.ot be awarded to th? inauageis i f the Baltimore and Ohio Kailroad for their prudent and energetic conduct in this trying emergency. 1 mdeoce forbids me to give tbe details of what thoy havo done and arc doing, but they nave taken all neodful measures for the salety of their road, aa well as tor that of the mails and passengers. In this tbey are ably seconded by Genera] Dixon S Miles, the commandant at Harper's Kerry. General Wool s administration cf aflairs in Ibis depart" ment is marked by great vigor and success. This in owing in a great measure to the officers composing !??* staff, whose experience and tact will now be called in play to their rulleat extent. NEWSPAPER ACOUNTS. TBK SITUATION IN WASHINGTON. fFrom the Washington Evening Blur, Kept. 6.] Nothing bad been publicly known hore up to noon to day thai sheds inoi e tight ihao wo bid yosterday upon the interesting question whether the rebeis havo or have not crossed tne Potomac in force. We believe that up to that hour not a ieport had reached here tj that effect from any otlicer whose duty it has been to watch the river fords and communicate to headquarters mfor mat ion cf everything of public interest occurring about them. Nevertheless, second hand telegraphic reports, por porting to come frvm skedaddling farmers, deserters, &c., raich Washington, as yesterday, tbick and fast, al kg mg that tbe enemy have crossed at vartoua ferr>ca, from Seneca to the Point of Rocks, an aggregate lorco of some thousands?some say five, others thirty, others fifty, ftc , Ac. in view of tbe si fence of the officers guarding tbe river bank, however, it must either be that tbey are cutoff already from opportunities to communicate with Wash ington, or that there is no substantial Inundation whatever for tbe rumors of huge proportions mentioned tbOTt. In the meanwhile, Mill id Washington realize, large bodies of our troops are moving night and day to posi tions from which we cm be mutter ol the sHualioo should these aooounts prove true. Never before have the streets of W.tshlngtoo been so crcwded, H being almoet as difficult to navigate a back one now aa formerly Pennsylvania avenue This im mense throng id our streets ts, of course, for the most part, caused by the military movements to which we reler.

Tlic roque?t of Ihe Secretary of War ou Saturday lasu that the clerks and employes In the several departments Bbould hasten to the field of conflict and minister to the Birk and wounded, was cheerfully compiled with, snd vsry many who proffered tlieir Bervn.es were unable to go lor waul of transportation. Thoee who went arrived atCeutreville, aftor a vexatious and tedious Journey in a long train of ambulance*, about eight o'clock Nibbath nioruing. He/ore reaching that place, however, the indi cations were anything but favorable to the denpatcb which bad been tent by General Popo to Wash. mgton on Saturday afternoon, that the Union army wan victorious and the rebels flying to the mountaius. lvong trains of government wagons, loaded and empty, with portion* of artillery batteries, generally without their guns, and the hurried mo\emcuts of an, ware an\ - thin* but satisfactory to one who stood by the Union. But very few, however, seemed to understood thai it was a retreat to other lines, as, in answer to the question "why they were moving backward," every one had his own answor, but no ope viewed It ae a retreat before the enemy. Our disappointment may be imagined when we ^Ld the whole army behind the old lutrenchmeuts at i entrevtUo. and our glarlpiis victory turned into a signal (aid disastrous del eat, and in many reelects a la Bull run of the ?st July, J881. The enemy had possession of the field, and if our dead and wounded were to be cared for we must enter the battle fie.d under a Bag of truoe. This the enemy would not allow until the next day <Monday). Ihe chagrin or the men and officers of ihe army, aa might be expected, was ,lrep, when, as they all declared, pioper generalship would have saved the m what they all claimed to within an hour of their retiring before the triumphant and shouting rebels. Ab there ware all tliat were necosaary to wait upon and care for the wounded that had beon brought to Centreville, wo determined to spend the d.v bm best we could with our army, and go to the battle field in the morning Wherever a number of men were clus. tered together during the day, the causo of the defeat was treely and earnestly canvassed; and but one opinion prevailed, and that was the u?tal disqualification end in efficiency or General McDowell, and tl.at, wiih any ther general on the field, the battle would have been w,n. He num'iauons of his conduct were uttered both by men snd officers and it is very doubtful whether he will be able during the war to lead even a brigade into the field. H was wid that be wou'd long since Luxe beu> dir.rn.ssed the serv ice for iac >mpetency but f?r political mfiuence. Although we confess to having iKtely gone with the multitude as to the unfilMaa ?f General MoCiellan as a leader or our "mj, the fooling manifested by officers and private, for that mnn?the one "lone fitted to lead them to final succesa quite disarmed us of our prejudices, and we acknowledge lo deep conviction that the administratis would run great hazards in attempting to supplnnt h.m with any other general. Where any other opinion w?a expressed, n was by men lately recruited into the service,and whose opinions were of but little moment. After j<asaing over the old Bull run battle gTonnd, we arrived n the i lace where our surgeons had established (heir headquarters, at-d where the work of umpuution was fl'ortly to commence.

Under such circumstances, one would involuntarily exclaim, "tn tha name of God and humanity, what is all ibis blond and sacrifice for? ' officers and men convsrsed frosty upon tha points tn imie. The officers, however, differed m this reni>act rroro the privates they denounced the North, were bit tor in tboir denunciations, and dsfclsred that thsy were going to fight until the last man bad tallen and the last dmp of bl.cd bad been shid.

And such was substantially the languag at maay other* with wham wo eoa versed With aagard to tba ?rtl~ tbat frequently been made regarding the ""J"" af the dead and wounded by the rebela, satisfied of their correctness. Nearly *" dead ware stripped of their clothing. unless where It Inferior; and where either the coat or pants wa ler upon the body, the watch fob and pockets were uaiver aally turned inside out. The money aud valuable# opou the wounded ware also takenj from them, excepting In a few instances, where Iboea .Lings were carefully concealed In isome other plate upon tbo body. We did not nee ft body of a single enemy, and the very r?w graves which speared upon the ground led us to suppose that the eueiny'a loss In killed was really nothing in comparison with our own; but we learned that they had a corps attached to their army whose only busmoss was to carry off the dead anil wounded, and who never do service in the ranks; that tho dead bail been removed to soma point from the Held an.l buried. In this fact wo were confirmed by accidentally finding a number or reliels filling up a large hole In neighboring field, where |perhaps fifty or sixty bod lea were Inlemxl. Tbo effect of havinn mu0 to perform this work alone loaves the privates totally in the dark as to tho true numbois thev loose In b-iitle. Kvery soldier that I uskod com rn :Dg tbo number tbey lost in those two days seemed to think about a fourth or fifth part of the Unlou loss. I wa* well convinced that this modo or deceiving tho soldiers was practised, ae, iu speaking of several ililToreiit battles where their losses were notoriously fnr beyond our own, the men talked about the small numbers they )Qfct. It was a matter of astonishment to all that so little oom; l.uut was made by the wounded, and although they w. .e left n|?n the held for so many hours without drink or nourishment, yet not a word of complaint escaped the lips of any < ne. Tbey took it for granted that the govern ment wan doiug everything in its power to alleviate their sufferings. 1 cannot bet think that the commissary supplies of the enemy are very low, and, indeed, well nigh exhausted. Wben supplies lrom Washington fai"*l to reach us upon Wednesday morning, we made tho proposition to their medical purveyor, l>r. tiill, and others, that tho government would return promptly anything tliey would let us have in the way of meat,bread, *c.; but they inrorin ed us that tbey had none themselves, and, although willing to do it. it was out of their power?that ttwir supply trams wore very far back, aud that they could not tel when thoy would reach them. The monalso undo corro borative statements concerning their rations. I cannot but think that tbo confident appeasonoo with which tbu enemy now assumes the offenslvo is all sham, for the purpose of gaining time, and that a prompt, rapid move meutof our foi cee would cause them to fly ao the chaff beforo the wiud. The slow movements of our own army have in every instance been oT immense advautage to the once. But Gen. McClcllan must not now|be interfered with by civilians or politicians. On Tuesday, the whole or Ibe day, the road towards Leesbnrg was crossed with the eiemy's troops and bag gago train. At least forty thousand men must have pa-sad during the day, and when we arrived atfentro ville, on Wednesday afternoon, the wagons wore bolng loaded with tbo supplies captured from ua at Fairfax 8U tK?n, and with the forage our army had left at Centre ville. These, we also observed, were heading for Lccs One of the most Impressive and solemn incidents that occurred whde on that Held of death was the perform ance of tbo funeral service at the burial of private L. K. Wbito, or the Eighty-third Pennsylvania, who was unfor tunate enough ?o be In toclkiwoll's division, end fe'l while charging upon lb ' enemy's battory. Dr. Williams, o, Wattsburg, Ene county,l-a., with whom young White had resided the greater portion of h ? Me, waa in Wasbir g too the day of the battle, and proffered hi* services to the government as a volunteer surgeon. On arriving at the army be discovered White was miasing, and was in formed by a member of his company that be wiw killed, as be l.ad seen him fall. On r.iosday morning the loctor made search for the body, and found him still alive aud conscious. He was able to converse, but lived only aa hour or two alter the Doctor's arrival. Being the only clergyman upon the grouud, at the request of the Doctor, I performed the religious services at ibe grave; and never while I live, can the recollections of that scene and my feelings t>e etlaced, as the little group collated under a mulberry tree and buried the patriot sol dier. 1 prayed roost fervently that the Divine suppoit might bo given to tho young wife whom, a few mouths after tnclr marriage, he had left to sustain tho Cag and government, I prayed f* the wounded,a large number 0f whom lay near the grave, and right earnestly did I mploro the Cod of battles to bless aud savo our cooutry and government. In returning,on Wedneeday, we were detained some tifflo by the enemy , as they had determined that no one of us sh-uld leave until all our dead had been buried and ail unr wounded cared ror; but, through tho kindness or a mutual mend, a Canadian gcntlomau, and Dr. Thomas Maury, of the rebel army, and formerly of this city, wo were enabled to go on our way, and we passed the la? of ibe enemy's picket* about midnight, not far from Fair rax Court House. Three milos beyond Fairfax we entered lb. UnloiHines, and were happy to find ourselves again where the old Cag still fl"ated. 1 have seen the numbor killed and wounded in the two day a engagement variously estimated. 1 fM,bnw ever, a strong inclination to overestimate both dead and wounded,and hardly any two could agree, even alter | being upon the field w 'breo days. My own unpree sion is that the killed will not exceed fineou hundred and ( the wounded rorty five hundrod. These figures I should | consider high, rather than too low. | The meat efficient branch, I should Judge, or the ene my sserv.ee is bis cavalry, which certainly Tar exceeds our own in every respect. They have the be*t and rnort soldierly looking men. ae well as tho best stock of horses, and their equ.proenis, at least, are equal to onr own The men with whom t conversed were inUntry, and accounted for that in this manner ?That there w.v less danger in that armor the service, as they syldoui w.re ordered nuder heavy fire; that o*< b man whs wuaithy and look hi owu bor e, and the poer or laboring classes had to do the haid lighting and Lard work.

Ik* enemy tooM from Captain Judson his revolver, aabre, belt and spurs, remarking that hia pistol (one of CWt'a manufacture) waa worth among them $1%. Our money waa refused by them with taw except tone; but all were ravenous for specie. Everything that ooakf be done for tbe comfort of our priaonera waa cheerfully performed, but, aa the rebels were suffering tbemselvsa for food, they could only alleviate the auger tag of our mam by courtesy and bonorablo behavior. Tbe offlcerB are well uniformed, and are generally 9om looking men. Tbey wear a double breasted ooat of very fine cadet gray, with the buttons sf their reapestiva States, infantry officers having their cuffk and coilarn blue, cavalry yellow, aod artillery - red. Moat of the artillery offlccra, however, wear abort jack ets trimmed with red cord. Their sabres ire of very po?r quality, and many of tbe otllccra are deet<* tute of bolt or scabbard, and are compelled IS oarry tbeW swords constantly in their bands, A few bave tbeltf sabres quite sharp.

'Ihey are ui incd with tbe allured (lint lock muskets, rifles and shotguus, and uxprsss the mist implicit contlUeiico in success.

There seems to bo a prent lack of discipliue as regarda respect for officers; but so threat is the doqieratioii of the men, who hnvo been promised tbe privilege ol sacking Washington, Hut in battle not a man dare flmc.h or for a morn out hold back. Their artillery Is cmiiderc4 by them their poorest arm, and their cavalry the best* Tim latter are mounted on very fine horses, and are armctf withdo'ibl) barrelled shotguns and sabres. Most of their sabres are manufactured al Port Republic, in tbo Shenan doah valley. But few hivo pistols. Tbey have ? most beautiful silk guidon of dcarlot aud blue, with whita stars nnd crimson fringe. All the arms loet by our troops ars carefully collected and issued to their men. Sharp's rifles are oonsiderod great prizes, anil command an exorbitant price. A num ber of the Second llerdan Sharpshooters were taken prisoners, and every man destroyed his rtflo by oitbef removing tbo tilde at the breech, or by bonding the bar rel, not one or those much sought for woapona falling 'nto their tunds in a serviceable condition. Jnthe rebel cavalry Captain Judson saw a great num. her 01 civilians, whom he had met with inside our lines) many of whom had applied to him for guards to protect their properly. These wero dressed In citizens' clothes, but carried shotguns and sabres. Other officers also saw men whoso property bad been protected at their own ra* quest, together with several persons whom we bad ar* rested at Fredericksburg and elsewhere, and released on parole. General Kwell was nt>i killed,as reported, but waa shot In tbe knee joint, rendering it necessary to amputate tbe limb. This, however, will render him unfit for Bar vice, ami, an be is of a very nervous temporament, and to poor houlth, it is not improbable that tbe wound will ultl tnatcly result in bis doatli. Thair own sick and woandsd sulle,r terribly through want of proper care and DOurlafc ment,and are dying by hundreds. Their prlvataa took gr?at pains in administering to tbe comfort of our wound ed left on the field, giving them water, placing them IB the halo, aud otherwise arranging them in eaay posi tions. As late as Wednesday last several hundred of sag wounded remained upon the field with nothing to oat, and with no one to dress their wouuds. Huudreda of IbakiUed arc yet nnburied, and many of tbeae, including officers, aro stripped entirely naked. Capt. Judson and Capt. Currish buried tbe remains d Colonel O'Connor, of tbe Second Wisconsin, together witb the rema.us of ten men. Tbe Colooel's g-avo was marked, so as to bo rec-igm/ed at any future pe,'iod, and slaps have already been taken to obtain tbe body and send It to Wisconsin. Our prisoners would hsve buried all iba dead had an opportunity been afforded, but,as the rebels were about to move, il ticca mo necessary for them to leave before many could be lulorred. lbe rebels express great admiration of McClallsn'g geni.:s and ikill, and repird the operations of tbe aboil' lion i.its in crippling the General on tbo (icninsula and rn sii iotln* hi.) authority as oae of tho best movements thai could have been made for the promotion of their causo. lbe rumor that Mi Cletlan wa.i again to ba put in chief c< nnnaud occasioned no little uneasiness, and tbe i? pression prevailed among them that, unices they couM make a sueces-ful dash into Maryland and capture Wuaii Ingloii before bo could dispone his troops, tbey would either bo annihilated here or compelled is fall hack upon Richmond. Their criticisms upon <>en. Mc Dowell were fur from (Littering, and evinced considerable knowledge coucorniiig his |>ersonal character aod habits None ol them considered him treacherous, as many bav? unjustly accused him of being; but tho remark of a m\jc? to Captain Judson seemed to express the opinion of every Southern man relative to the General's efficiency. SaW tbo ui.Hjor, "When we see General McDowell in command of your troops, we regard it as being better for os than thirty thousand reinforcements." It is surprising to estimate lbe number of bortss shot under offi( ers upon the Held. Captain Wood, of Gonera) CiblM>n<' staff, had three horses shot under him; General Huti h lost two, and i woof his staff each a ho.se. Lieu lea ont Colonel Uoordslcy, o* the Twenty-fourth New Tork, was struck by three halls, and his borso by?'x,nlne to all, yet, stra:.go to say.be escaped with only a alight wound on the baud. A steel vest saved hia Ufa.
