Doom ?????? Pertornucee to i it TELEGRAPHIC NEWS, THE REBEL I.mSION. Defeat of the Rebel* Wear Bedford?They are Oriven ?? Hancock, fcc. Habbisbvbg, July 31.?There are now no Rebels In tne State. We are in communication u itti McConnellsburs and Bedford. Averill intercepted McOausland at McConnellsburg this morning, on bia way to Bedford, driving tbem out of the town belore they had a chance Of burning any property. The rebels wars driven out to Hancock. It is now ascertained that the rebels have no heavy force coming up in their rear, as was supposed. This was all a scare to uncover Washington. I telegraphed you yesterday that the Gov ernor would issue a proclamation for militia, hut the matter was subsequently submitted to Gen. Couch, who determined there was no necessity for militia, as we have forces and in large numbers (but where I dare not say) com petent to cope with the enemy and keep him out of the State. General Couch has gone West. Affairs at Chambersbnrg. Habbisbubu, July 31.?Out of 7,000 inhabi tants in Chambersbuag, 3,000 have been made destitute. They send here for bread and meat All the grocery stores at Chambersbnrg have been robbed. It is said the rebel officers protested against the burning of Chambersbnrg, but it was done by McCausland, under orders from Early, who is supreme in his commands. Invasion of Pennsylvania. Habrihbubg, August 1.?Governor Cnrtin has issued a proclamation calling the Legis lature together on Tuesday, the 9th of August, to devise means to make the military power of the State immediately available lor State and national defence. Later. Harribburo, August 1.?Positive informa tion has just reached here that the rebels are retiring from the direction of Bedford Springs out of the State. Major General Couch is to-day in the west ern part of the State, makiug a reconnoisance of the defences on the Monongahela and Ohio rivers. Before proceeding directly to Pitts burg he examined several points along the Pennsylvania railroad, and gave important directions for covering the border counties along the Maryland line in that direction. General Cadwallader is in temporary com mand of the forces and fortifications in the eastern part of the State, and is Inaugurating active measures to meet any emergency that may occur. The railroad between this point and Hagerstown is now open, and trains have been leaving on their regular morning and noon time. The entire force which entered and burned Chambersbnrg is no w positively known actually to have consisted of only three com Sanies, in the aggregate numbering but two undred and eight men. They occupied the town but two hours. On first entering, they gave the people three hours' time to move the women and children; but before an hour had expired, the fiends had fired the town. The Inhabitants hav?* fonnd shelter with the farmers along the different roads leading from Cham bersbnrg. A dispatch just received here states that General Averill had come up with the raiders eight miles south of McConnellsburg, and whipped tbem handsomely. At the latest accounts they were retreating in the direction of Hancock, with Averill in pursuit. FROM SHERMAN'S COMMAND. Tbe Late Battle in Georgia?Gen. Thorn* as's Official Report?Victory on Every Occasion?Severe Repulse of the Enemy: Changes in Corps Commands?General Hooker to Serve in Another Quarter. New York, Aug. 1?A special dispatch to the Herald, from Nashville, July 31, says Ma jor General Thomas, commanding the Array of the Cumberland, has issued the following interesting circular to the army near Atlanta: Hkadquartkhs Army or tub Cumber land, July 26, 1&64 ?The Major General com manding the army congratulates the troops upon tbe brilliant sacceEs attending the Unlou army in tbe late battles. In the battle of the 20th instant, in which the 90th corps, one di vision of the 4th corps, and part of the 14th corps were engaged, the total Union loss was, killed, wounded and missing, 1,733. In iront ol the 20th corps there were put out of the fight six thousand rebels. Five han dled and sixty three of the enemy were buried by our own troops, and the rebels were per mitted to bury two hundred and fitty. The 2d division of the corps repulsed seven different assaults of tbe enemy, with light loss to them selves, which must have swelled the number of dead buried by rebels to beyond three hun dred. We also captured seven stand of colors. No official report has been received of the part taken in the battle by the 14th corps. In the battle of the 22d the total Union loss, killed, wounded, andmiBsing, was three thou sand five hundred, and ten pieces of artillery. Tbe rebel loss in prisoners captured was three thousand two hundred. The known dead of the enemy in front of the 15th and l?ith corps, and one division of the 17th, was two thousand one hundred and forty-two. Other divisions t?f the 17th corps repulsed six assaults of the enemy before they fell baca, which will swell the rebel loss in killed to at least three thousand. The latest report states that we have buried over three thousand two hundred of the rebels killed in the fight. We recaptured from the enemy in this battle eigh teen stand of colors and 5,000 stand of arms. By command of Major General Thomas. The battle of the 22d was a flank attack of the enemy upon our left. During that attack the 17th corps was crumbled up, but not until it had repulsed several of the desperate charges of the rebels, and affording time for Logan, who temporarily succeeded McPherson in command of tne army of Tennessee, to face about and repel the assault^ made on him. Our correspondents with the army state that the rebel* were driven bhck to their last line ol works around the city. The battle ol the 28th was an assault In force on the15th corps, and appears to have resulted in as complete a defeat of the rebels as that of the 22d. Six hundred and forty-two dead were buried by our forces alter that battle. The report of the wounding of General Ste phen Lee was not confirmed, nor is It posi tively known that his force has reached Atlanta. _ General Stanley succeeds General Howard in command of the 4th corps. General Howard ia assigned to command the Army of Tennes see, in place of General McPherson. General Hooker passed through this city, en route for the North, this morning. It is under stood he leaves Sherman's command to enter upon other duties elsewhere, and General Ros seau succeeds him as commander of the 20th corps.

One division of the 2d corps?Mott's?came across the James last Thursday evening, after dark, and relieved tbe ISth corps, on the extreme right of our line before Petersburg, and the other two di visions are probably by this time?10.30 p. m ?in position to support the advanced di vision. The plan of the attack at daylight is as fol lows:?The 18th corps will mass in the rear of tbe 9th corps, Burnside holding the centre, and Burnside will spring a mine in bis front, which Will be the signal for an assault upon tbe rebel works. The 18th corps, Gen. Ord'e, will sup port Burnside, and simultaneously with the assanlt, a heavy fire be opened from the 2d and 5th corps in front. Deceived by our move ments on the north side of the James, Lee yes terday sent very large reinforcements, estima ted at 12,000 or 15,000men, to "checkmate these operations." The demonstration of tbe 2d corps and the cavalry, and Foster's command of the 10th corps, has, therefore, worked splen didly. The massing of troops by the rebels on our position across the James will place Foster in a very precarious position to-morrow morning. But he will make a stout fight. The cavalry fight yesterday across the James resulted in greater lose to the enemy than I was at first informed of. Wo bnried 168 Rebel dead, and captured two Uattla flags and 106 prisoners. Onr lots was 104 killed, wounded and missing, 19 of tbe last. BkvOkb PXTBXBBVRO, Saturday, Julf 3ft, a. m.?Earlier this moraine I wrote the plan of Attack upon the Rebel works in front of Petals baric; now I can say that the plan was carried out to the letter. As soon after daybreak as it was practicable for troops to move in co operation, an immense mice, reaching far away under tl.e enemy's first line ol earthwork* in frontof Gen'l Barn side's Corps, was fired. Tne explosion was th* signal for ihe discharge of every piece of artillery that we have In position from the Ap pomattox to onr extreme left. The effect was magnificent Ninety-live pieces of ordnance were fired so simultaneously tbat it seemed as f they might have been discharged by tbe pull of one lanyard. The firing thus fiercely opened was followed up in the same manner, with scarcely a per ceptible lull, for at least au hour and a half, when it slackened to some extent. Tne result of ttie explosion of the mine was almost to an nihilate one Kebel regiment, the '22d South Carolina, and burying three guns. Under cover of the artillery, and pashing our advan tage ground, by the suddenness of tne assault, tbe Ninth Corps advanced taking possession of the works through the pap made by the explo sion, and driving the enemy to the second line, which crowns (he hill tops eastward of the town. Nineteen of tbe 22d South Carolina, buried by the explosion, have been dug out alive. They are badly bruised and scratched, and some of them are, doubtless, mortally hurt. The attack they pronounce a surprise. Tbe mine was 400 feet long, constructed with two galleries diverging from the main passages, making three chambers, in which a tram of powder fifteen inches wide and deep was laid. The eft'ect of the explosion was very disastrous I witnessed the assault from a splendid point of view in front of the 5th corps head quarters on our extreme left. The grardeur of the artillery fire I have never seen surpassed, although I saw the naval attack at Fort Koyal, S. C., the passage by Farragut's squadron" ot the forts below New Orleans, and the assault upon Fort Sumter by the iron-clads on the 9th of April, 1 Jfi3. In this instance, however, un like the other, the heaviest firing was done on onr side. The enemv's artillery played but let ble. A very few minutes elapsed before the rebel lines were entirely shut from view by banks of smoke, and our gunners ceuld only be guided in their works by having obtained the proper range before. Many ot the shells from the front of the 18th corps must have struck far into the streets of Petersburg. From that direction a heavy column of black smoke arose soon alter the opening of fire, evidently from the burning buildings. From General Warren's front I came down to the center of our lines, and at Qeneral Burn side's headquarters tound Generals Grant and Meade. General Grant rode ont from City Point in time to see the explosion. After the rebel lines were pierced, they made a hurried movement to their left, and suffered heavily from an enfilading fire. General Ledlie's division of Burnside's corps led the attack, the 11th New York heavy artillery having the advance. About one hundred pris oners have so far been brought into Burn side's headquarters. The cannonading is still hot, and the ret>els hold their position obsti nately. Our infantry has just received orders to advance. The work was commenced on the 25th ef June last, as previously stated. Such was the secrecy with which it was conducted that for a long time the project was unknown even to those at whose side it was going on. It is true that reports were in circulation of a mine; but nobody con Id speak certainly of the matter. So much doubt was there, indeed, that for a time it was disbelieved that any such under taking was on foot. One soldier in the breast works, by whose side a ventilating shaft emerged, told his comrades, in the most sur prised manner, that "there was a lot of fellows under bim a doing something, he knew there was, for he could hear em talk." To guard against indiscretion on the part of the pickets, to prevent any meeting of our sol diers with tbe rebels whereat tbe secret of the mine might be boastingly or imprudently dis closed, our pickets were ordered to fire con tinually. Uence the never-ending fusilade on the front of the Ninth corps, so incompreh?n sible to tbe other corps, and which was often referred to in newspaper paragraphs. The enemy, doubtless, suspected at first that the undermining was going on, but when several weeks elapsed without any demonstration, their suspicions began to vanish, especially as the engineers must have thought the plan un feasible. The progress of the work was necessarily very slow, and it was not until the 25th in stant?jast one month after inception?tbat it was completed. At the outset, one of the most important points was to ascertain the exact distance and bearing of the rebel fort. Work ing underground is literally working in tbe dark. By tbat particular process of survey ing called "triangnlation," these were arrived at. To be more explicit?distances were laid off upon the ground, behind onr works. From these lines as bases, and with the angles formed by lines extending in the direction of the fort, a simple geometrical problem was formed, the solntion of which gave the required distance. Five different triangulations gave a result of five hundred and ten feet. The excavation was commenced in the side of the hill whereon our exterior line of works runs. The tnnnel, or to use tne technical term, "gallery," is about four and a halt feet high, nearly as many feet wide at the bottom, and two feet wide at tbe top The nenal army pick was not suited to the work, as its flukes were too broad to permit their swinging in the tunnel. The difficulty was easily overcome by filing down the Hakes to tbe size of the regular mining pick. Water was met with not lar from the entrance, and for a time gave no little trouble. The floor, however, was planked, and the sides and ceil ing shoved up. A quicksand was met with, and, to obviate it, the range of the tunnel was curved upward, so that the latter half was sev eral feet higher than at the entrance. The oozing of the water formed mud in several places, so that the regiment came from their daily labor bespattered and stained. Iu fact, it was easy during the past month to recognize a 4Sth man by his muddv boots. The earth, as fast as excavated, was conveyed in hand bar rows made of cracker boxes or half barrels, to the mouth, where it was emptied into bags, which were afterwards used on the top of the breastworks. In this manner no betraying ac cumulation of earth took place. The ventilation of the tunnel was most inge niously effected. Just within our exterior line of works a shaft was sunk to the side of the tunnel, at its junction with which a fireplace was built, with a grating opening into the gal lery. One end of a series of tubes, made of pine boards, was inserted through the earth into this fireplace, where, as the air became rarified and ascended, it created a "suction" or draft in the tubes connecting with the gallery. As last as tne tnnnel progressed, additional tubes was jointed on, and lollowed the work men step by step. Tbe smoke from the fire conld not of course be coucealed; but, te with draw attention from it, first were kept burning at various points along the line. The lighting of the tunnel was effected simply by placing candles or lanterns along the walls at a dis tance ot about twenty feet apart. At length the end was reached, and the tri angulation was abundantly verified in the noises overhead. The nailing of timber and planks conld be distinctly heard, and left no doubt that the men were directly beneath the rebel fort. The enemy were evidently making a flooring for their artillery. As near as could be ascertained, the distance from the tnnnel to the fort was twenty feet. , ^ _ After It was sufficiently evident that a point direotly under the fort was reached the con struction of the mine was commenced. The angle ot the fort projects toward our lines, and under this angle the tnnnel diverged into two galleries, each running, as near as could be ascertained, under each side. It was the in tention to make the mine consist of eight mag azines, placed at intervals along these branch galleries, so that the entire length of the fort might be blown up, in place of one spot. Pre liminary experiments were made by Colonel Pleasants with cartridges of .P?*dSr'J?thhlc^ he inserted in the earth and "?*** * fuse. He ascertained that the work of making a breach wonld be more effectually secured by distributing the powder, instead of P?"*Qg la bulk. In the latter case the explosion resulted in a deep and broad crater: in the former, ia a wide chasm. Where the cartridges-his min iature magazines-were not disconnected by Sacking, the tendency of the explosion was > find vent at the first hole. Hence he resorted to packing between the magazines, or, as it la technically known, "tamping." The magazines are eight in number?four In either branch gallery. In some cases they are built la niches, and again ri;ht across the ton nel. They are two by two, and the explosion will result In fonr craters, tangent to or inter secting each other. Tbe explosion of the magazines will be ef fected through tabes of piae wood six inches square half filled with powder. These ran along the bottom ot the tunnel, and enter tne magazine through opening* made for Prtum eack pair of ?ac**tnee. and over the tobinf, is the ?? tapinf* of Mod bag* and '?pie tnbe* *rftHul only ame hand*** twt frotn the mli'f, tfc^nee tb??y nr* ?nmma f iK* * * wllfc lfc? rtiow* ol the tunnel by (asn. tfce rif. niar "tttreflre" coal mining fuses of P*???
