THE INVASION.
Particulars of the Burning of the tiun<
powder Bridge.
[Despatch to the Chronicle.J
Baltimore. July 11.?The destruction of
Gunpowder bridge is confirmed. When the
Monday 7.30 traiu from Washington, which
lelt this city at 9.10, reached Magnolia, nine
teen miles from this city, they met a large rebel
force of cavalry. Alter turning the passengers
out of the cars and paroling the officers aud
men of the army, the train was run on the
bridge, and it was set fire to.
The train consisted of four ratan cars, one
ordinary passenger, one Philadelphia baggage,
and one camden and Amboy baggage -ar, be
sides tne mail car, engine and tender. A guard
cf twenty men at the bridge were gobbled up.
The passengers, it is supposed, will endeavor
to reach Bavre de-Grace. We cannot say at
present what other damage has been done.
Grant Can Take Care ?( Richmond.
Baltimore, July 11.?General Wallace all
safe. I also learn that General Grant ha? tele,
graphed that if our forces here aronnd Wash
ington can repel the rebels and take care of
Washington and Baltimore, he can attend to
Richmond satisfactorily. ,Our military author
ities feel more confident to-day, but the excite,
ment is very great. Gilniore said yesterday he
wonld be in Baltimore to-night. Let him
make the attempt. He will find an inglorious
grave.
Capture of General Franklin?A Train
Recaptured from the Rebels?The Sus
pension of Business in Baltimore?Wires
to Philadelphia Again Working.
Baltimore, July 11.?The City Councils
held a special session this afternoon, and passed
a resolution requesting Gen. Wallace to order
an entire suspension of business iu the city to
morrow, and also to order all able-bodied citi
zens, regardless of politics, to arms in the dif
ferent wards of the city. It is believed Gen.
Wallace will carry out the Council s request.
The excitement continues to increase. Troops
are seen everywhere. Civilians and refugees
are coming from all quarters with valuables.
We have no late information of the nearer ap
proach of the rebels, but some expect a demon
stration on the city to*nignt.
Rebel squads have gobbled 6ome cattle and
soldiers guarding them, to-day, some miles out
of town. It is reported that, the rebels who
burned the bridges on the Philadelphia road
have been captured, but the report is doubtful.
Many suspicions persons and some straggling
rebels are being arrested hourly.
Baltimore, July 11.?1 have seen one of the
telegraph repair men who was at Gunpowder
bridge to-day, on the railroad train, wnen the
rebels, about 1,600 cavalry, came down the
peninsula between two ri versand burned Gun
powder bridge. Thev approached the train
with yells, firiug in every direction, and final
ly stopped it. Two or three passengers were
killed, and others wounded. Terrible conster
nation ensued. My informant was captured,
but escaped. The whole train was fired, run
on the bridge, and burned. The engine and
a few cars were taken by them and run to Bush
river, where the bridge across It was burned.
It is believed the party then proceeded to
Havre de Grace to capture the ferry boat and
other vessels, and also do other damage.
Confidence Is felt that all these marauders
will finally be captured. The excitement con
tinues here. The preparations, it is believed,
are ample for all emergencies.
The secessionists seem highly elated and
pretend to be possessed of highly flattering
news. They say 40,000men will be upon Wajn
ington to-morrow, and it will be shelled.
They chuckle, rejoicingly, in the beliei that
It will be captured. I fear they know too
much. I rever saw them mere confident. ]

Baltimore, July 11,1 p. m.?The rebel cav
nlry that destroyed the bridges, to-day, on Gun
powder, Bush, and Back river on the Philadel
phia road, were at Towsontown at ten to
night, returning unmolested. Thev are going
to join tne rebel forces in Montgomery county.
Parties have gone out, to-night, to see after
repairing the Philadelphia railroad.
The City Council, to-day, appropriated one
hundred thousand dollars to defray the expen

[Despatches to the Associated Press.]
Baltimore, July 11.?The excitement in Bal
timore has increased by the rebel oi>erations
around the city. To-day the<innpowder bridge
was destroyed by a burning train which the
rebels ran upon it, its approaches being guard
ed by a gnnboat lying in the river. The traiu
which they used to accomplish their purpose
tbey bad previously captured this 6ide of the
bridge, being the regular 9.30 passenger train
from Baltimore. Tne passengers were turned
out and robbed, and their trunks plundered,
about fifteen miles from the city.
We have accounts oi the stealing cf horses
acd the plunder of stores all through Balti
more county. The turnpike bridge over the
Gunpowder has also been destioyed. Fears
are entertained that a number of the mills, fac
tories, and foundries around the city will be
destroyed to-night.
As far as can be ascertained, the whole cav
alry force in Baltimore county, which has
done all this mischief, does not exceed ^00, un
der command of the noted Harry Gilmor.
The defences of the city are being strength
ened and manned, and the citizens are arming
and manning the entrenchments in large num
bers.
The banks and insurance companies have all
deposited their valuables on board of a steamer
chartered for the purpose, and ready to leave
at a moment's notice.
Arrangements have alEO been made to
remote the archives of the State from An
napolis.
The city is full of rumors to-night of attacks
on our pickets around the city, and it is re
ported that Ellicott's Mills is in their posses
sion-, but we cannot ascertain the trnth of the
report.
11.30 F- M.?All is quiet in the city, though we
have reports of our cavalry skirmishing with
the raiders at Towsontown, seven miles out on
the York roaa.
General Ord iu Command.
Baltimore, July ll.?G?neral Ord has been
appointed to the command of the 8th army
corps, and General Wallace commands the de
partment
By this arrangement General Ord has com
mand of all the troops for the defense of the
city. A gentleman just from Ellicott's Mills
reports all quiet there, and for a distance of ten
miles beyond.
Our pickets bad a skirmish beyond Elysville
this morning with a squad of rebel cavalry,
killing a lieutenant in command, and capturing
two, the balance escaping.
Doctor More, of Havre-de-Graee, with a
loyal party, started out this morning and cap
tured twenty-five of the bridge-burners.
Retos Repulsed by Onr Gnnboat*.
Philadelphia, July 11.?Two morning
trains fiom Baltimore were captured by the

Baltimore. Major General Franklin was cap
