Reconnaissance by Vaita Cavalry?Ene
my M?t1b| Towards Leetown?Capture
of Rebel Prisoners?Heavy Firing at
Shfphfrdit?wn.
Balti more, Ang. 05.?The American has to
night received the following special dispatch,
dated Harper's Ferry, Aug. 25:
A reconnaissance was made this morning by
a large force of cavalry, nnder the command
of Gen. Torbert, which has resulted in ob
taining very important information with re
spect to the enemy'b movements.
From the information received, it appears
that a considerable portion of the enemy's
forces broke camp at Charlestown this morn
ing at daylight, and marched in the direction
of Leetown.
Our cavalry struck their line of skirmishers
abont a mile beyond Kearney ville, and, after a
brilliant ofcarge, succeeded in capturing qnite
a number of prisoners.
During the skirmish we lost a few in killed
and wounded, all of which we brought off the
fit Id. Among the killed is Maj. Schlick, of the
23d cavalry, who was shot through the head.
Lieut. Blunt, of the 5th New York, serving on
the staff of Gen. Mcintosh, was ahot through
the ear.
At the time of WTiting this dispatch, heavv
firing is going on in the vicinity of Shepherds
town, probably between the yebel advance at
the ford and the forces of Gen. Averill. Warm
work may now be anticipated.
FROM FORTRESS MONROE.
Fortress Monrob, August 24.?The flag of
truce steamer New York arrived last evening
at 9 o'clock, from Aiken's Landing, James
river, with 400 paroled wounded prisoners of
war, ir charge of John E. Mulford, major and
assistent agent for exchange.
The Uni'ed States hospital steamship Atlan
tic will leave Fortress Monroe this evening for
Philadelphia, with 414 wounded, all of the 5th
army corps, and recently wounded near the
Weldon railroad.
A telegiaph cable, of English manufacture,
arrived here to-day. It is to be placed across
the Chesapeake Bay, from Fort Monroe to
Cherrystone, Eastern Shore. The old cable
has been useless for several weeks.
The steamer United States arrived last night
from New Orleans. No additional news from
the Gulf.
FROM THE FRONT.
Fortress Monroe, Aug. 24.?Arrivals from
the front represent but little fighting for the
last two days, and it is apparent that the en
emy have relinquished the idea of retaking the
Weldon railroad.
Latest.
The mail steamer John Brooks, from City
Point, arrved at 4 p. m. All is quiet, not even
the usual firing by tne sharpshooters. The en
emy have evidently given up their effort to re
take the position so strongly held by our left
wing, which is represented as oerfectly secure
and easily held by our present force.
Democratic Demonstration in Philadel
phia?Off for Chicago.
Philadelphia. Aug.25.?The Keystone Club
paraded this evening with flags and a band,
preparatory to departure for Chicago. They
saluted the newspaper offices in passing, the
Age being the only one to receive cheers, while
all the Union offices were groaned.

Prisoners.
[Correspondence Baltimore American.]
Headquarters Middle Department, In
the Field, Aug. 25, 8 a. m.?The usual quiet of
the past few days was disturbed yesterday by
a movement on our part, which csnsisted in a
reconnoissance being made by a detachment
from Crook's com;nand and the Nineteenth
Army Corps, to ascertain the strength and po
sition cf tne enemy on our front.
The force from Crook's command consisted
of the I'th and 14th Virginia, and the 34th and
91st Ohio infantry of Johnson's Brigade, Du
val's Division, together with a regiment of
cavalry, under Col. Lowell, which consisted
of two" squadrons of the 22d Pa., commanded
by Major Myers, and two squadrons of the 2d
Mass.
This force was instructed to move quickly
on the right flank of the enemy's skirmish line,
and if possible get in their rear, whilst another
force, consisting of the 10th, llth and 15th Vir
ginia infantry, of Thoburn's division, moved
out to attract their attention in front.
It was intended that the force thus deployed
should capture the whole or a greater portion
of the enemy's skirmish line.
At precisely twelve o'clock Duval moved his
force to the front, and advanced in two bat
talion lines, keeping his men as much as pos
sible under cover, to prevent the enemy from
asc?rtainlng his strength or probable inten
tions.
He had not proceeded far when he encoun
tered the advance of the enemy's skirmish line,
who were under cover of "rail pens" hastily
thrown up, and affording shelter for five or six
men. These 'Tail pens" were situated about
eight hundred yards in advance of our skir
mish line in an open field, with a beltof woods
on the right and left, and a large corn field in
rear.
As soon as the enemy's advanced line discov
ered tne approach of our force tbey hastily re
tired to the eorn field in rear, where a portion
of their reserve was stationed, and who were
immediately drawn up to resist onr further
advance. Col. Duval continued to move for
ward his force, a portion of which was com
Eletely hid from the enemy's observation, until
e got nearly feur hundred yards in their rear,
when suddenly jiiscovering nim they wheeled
into line and opened a heavy fire into his flank,
compelling him to change front and face one
line to the right. This move had the desired
effec-, for they were shortly driven to retire,
when our cavalry were ordered to advance
and charge them, which thev did in fine style,
killing and wounding quite a number and
capturing six prisoners. In this charge
Major Myers, of the 22d Pennsylvania Cav
alry, was wounded by a splinter of a shell in
the leg.
As soon as the enemy became convinced we
meditated an attack on his skirmish line they
brought reinforcements rapidly forward from
the direction of Charlestown, and moved one
battery of artillery to a commanding position
in a piece of woods, the fire from which en
filaded our advance. As soon as the enemy's
| battery commenced firing, Battery B, 5th
United States Artillery, commanded by Cap
tain Dupont, and Battery D, 1st Pennsylvania,
commanded by Captain Kosney, opened on
them with marked effect, and an artillery duel
was commenced which lasted for about twen
ty minutes, when the enemy's battery was
withdrawn. Our forces fell back, having ac
complished all that was intended, witn the
exception of the capture of the enemy's
entire shirkmish line. We, however, took
about thirty prisoners.
It was no part of the General's plan that they
should bring on a general engagement; on the
the contrary, they received strict orders to
avoid fighting as much as possible.
The result of the reconnoisance established
the fact that the enemy were still in our front
in considerable force.
The prisoners captured state that Rhodes'
and Raneeur's divisions are detailed for picket
duty in our immediate front, and the rest of
the Confederate forces nnder Early are at
Charlestown. They differ in their statements
with respect to Longs tree t Some of them pos
itively assert that he is here in person, whilst
others are equally confident that ne is not her,*,
but that two of his divisions have crossed, un
der command of Gen. Pickets. Our total loss
in Crook's command will notexceed 43 wound
ed and 6 killed.
After we fell back yesterday the enemy re
sumed his old position, and picket skirmishing
was kept up until dark.
The American says, editorially :
The most important army news this morning
comes from the Shenandoan Valley. ? strong
reconnoisance from onr army was made on
Wednesday, developing the fact that the ene
my were still in force In our front, with the
main body encamped at Charlestown. The
movement was successful not only In develop
ing the position of the enemy, bat also in the
capture of a n umber of prisoners. A second
reconnoissance, mad* yesterday by a large
force of cavalry, resulted in developing the
fact that the enemy wero moving. A conside
rable portion of their force broke camp at day
light, and moved in the direction of Martins
burg. Oar cavalry struck their skirmish line
near Kearneysville, and made a brilliant
charge, capturing a number of prisoners,
white we lost bat a lew killed and wounded.
At the time oar special dispatch was seat, late
yeaferdsy afternoon, hea\ y firing was heard
in the direction of Shepherdstown, supposed
to be between the rebel advance at th? ford and
General A TerHl's forces. The rebel move
ment, if not a feint, unquestionably indicates
an advance into Maryland. General Sheri
dan's position at Harper's Ferrv five* htm the
shorter line of travel Into the Mlddletown and
Boonsboro Valleya, and a battle aomewbrn tn
the viclnltv of Antletam is not an impossibility.
The activity with which our reeonneis&natn
have been made shows that the enemy will
not be permit ed to get the start of our forces.
THE ENGLISH RAILWAY MURDER.
Arrival, Identification. Arrest and Deten
tion of Muller, the .Murderer.
The packet ship Victoria, from London, ar
rived at quarantine last evening, after a pas
sage of tbirty-eight days to this port, bringing
among her forty.eight passengers the London
railway murderer, Franz Muller. According
to previous arrangement, when the Victoria
crossed the bar the operator at Sandy Hook
telegraphed the fact, and the telegram was
transmitted without delay to Statin Island,
vnere lor ft fortnight or more Inspector T&n
ner, of the London detective policeman inspec
tor of police from Manchester, England' Mr
l?eath, the London jeweller to whom Mailer
sold the chain which he took from the person
of his victim, and Jonathan Matthews the
cabman whose communication to the Loudon
police first gave them a clue, have patiently
awaited the arrival of the accused.
Frcmptly on the reception of the telegram
from bandy Hook, the I^ondon inspector, ac
rom| anied 'by officer Tleman, of tbe New York
de ective police, and Matthews, the cabman,
(who weut with them to identify Mnller,)
s night the health officer, and when the Victoria
droppfd anchor at Quarantine they boarded
h r. The party then introdnced themselves to
U^iptaln Champion, and were cordially wel
comed to his ship. He was glad to see them,
he said, as from the time when on speaking a
pilot, he first learned that he had the murderer
aboard, he bad experienced an oppressive
weight of responsibility, and so watehfal had
he been lest Muller should escape, that he had
scarcely slept; and yesterday, when near the
Lightship, an excursion party hailed his vessel
with "How are yon. Mnller, the murderer!" he
knew that his passenger could no longer hope
to escape, and ne was deeply cencerned lest he
should jump overboard and swim ashore. The
captain adds that Muller was quite cheerful
throughout the voyage, up to the time when he
heard the excursion party's salutation; after
which he became depressed, and made inquiries
about the islands, to which he seemingly desired
to escape.
The Captain then ranged his passengers
where the detectives might see all, and the
officers, who had a photograph to guide ihem
in their search, readily recognized the man
that they sought, as well as did Mathews, the
cabman. Muller was then arrested and taken
to the cabin, and there informed ot the charac
ter of the officers who surrounded him. He
seemed in no wise disconcerted, and stoutly
asserted his innocence. When asked how it
happened that he had in his possession the
watch and hat of Mr. Briggs, his victim (these
were found on the prisoner's person), be re
plied that when be was about to go aboard the
Victoria he purchased them of a man whom
he met on the pier, and he assured the officers
that on returning to London he would prove
an alibi, and thus establish his entire inno
cence.
The officers remained on board the Victoria,
closely guarding their prisoner, until 6^
o'clock this merning, when they chartered a
tug and brought htm to the city, taking him
immediately to police headquarters, where he
is now confined to one of the cells which are
attached to the detectives' office.
Muller is, as his name indicates, a German.
He is about twenty-five years of age, of medi
um stature, slim, and of inoffensive appear
ance?the very last person In the world to sus
pect of murder. In his cell, at police head
quarters, this morning, he was downcast and
morose, having scarcely a word for any of the
numerous visitors who were cnrlous to see
him.?xV. T.Post.

Secretary of State under Mr. Buchanan's ad
