Chattanooga, April 24.?On Friday morn ing, at daybreak, the rebels approached onr outer videttea in Nickajack Gap and were challenged, and one shot by the sentinel, who retreated on the mounted reserve. They attacked the reserve in large force, cap turing twelve and killing fonr. Four of the wounded were killed after falling into tbe hands ot the rebels, but their bodies were re covered. Our cavalry force was about forty, and beloaged to Mlnty's command. Some of our wounded made affidavit that they were fired at by the rebels while lying upon the ground in their blood. On Friday morning filty rebels crossed the railway near Charleston, but did not disturb the track. They were pursued by the cavalry, and twelve were captured. Tbe regular complement of rebel deserters arrlv* daily. Surgeon Phelps, of Ohio, medical director of the 4th army corps, is ordered ^report to Gen. Meade for duty. The army is is-fine condition. GEN. SIGEL'S DEPARTMENT. Spirited Cavalry Skirmish at Newtewn. Hartek's Ferrt. Va., April 25.?A very spirited engagement took place between a de tachment of the First New York Cavalry and & body of rebels at Newtown, near Strasburg. We lost one officer and quite a number of men. The rebel force is reported to have been be tween three and four hundred strong, the strength of our party about one hundred men. The contest, although a decidedly unequal one, was kept up with much spirit for some time. Superiority of numbers alone gave the rebels the advantage they gained. The detachment of 1st New York cavalry thus engaged was out on a scout, being des patched lrom Martinsburg. It is evident they ??scouted" out the position of the enemy, and subsequently "scooted"' for the old position ol friendly quarters. Cumbmlamd, Mix, April 2.'?.?Neither at Harper's Ferry nor Martinsburg is there any tewsof interest to-day. Nothing is said aboht ?the reported advance of Lee. Pennsylvania Militia?No Immediate Call Anticipated. HARRiflBFRt;, April 2T.?It is not probable that there will be a call for the militia of this State at this time. It is known that there is a perfect understanding between the State and national authorities on this subject, and when ever the military force of the State is needed, they will most promptly be ftfrnished. The new militia bill will certainly pass the Legislature, and as soon as the law is revised so as to make the militia etfective, the Gov ernor will immediately organize it so as to be readv for any service needed by the State and nation. CONGRESSIONAL. I* the Senate yesterday? The amendment Of Mr. Pomeroy to the "bill to provide a national currency, secured by a pledge of United States bonds, and to provide for the circulation and ledemption thereof," was debated by Messrs. Howe, Collamer, Chandler, Johnson, Sumner, and others, but no definite action was taken. In thb House? Mr. Garfield reported from the Committee on Military Affairs a joint resolution appropria ting S2o,0(X>,<X)0 to pay for the Western troops recently called out by the Governors lor a period not less than one hundred days. The joint resolution was passed almost im mediately. The House, in committee, resumed the con sideration of tbe internal tax bill. Mr. Pendleton, of the Committee of Ways and Means, proposed various amenndments to the sections relating to penalties, in order to their more certain and speedy execution. The following, among other amendments, were adopted: Imposing acuty of 2 W per centnm ad valorem on tbe gross amount of the sales of sugar re finers, including all the products of their man ufactories or refineries. A tax of 5 per centum ad valorem on quick silver produced from the ore. One of the clauses was amended so that a duty of 5 per centum shall be imposed on gold and silver produced from quart* mines, from beds of rivers, from the earth, or in an> other way or manner; provided all such duties shall be payable in coin or bullion. Mr'Wallace, the delegate from Idaho, moved to strike out the above proviso, requiring pay ment in coin. It was, he said, in effect a repu d iation of the Government paper. The proviso was stricken out. The proviso to the clause relating to sales of gold and silver, bullion, etc., was modified to read aa follows: Any person, firm, or company, not being licensed as a broker, who shall sell or-offer to sell any gold or silver bullion, sterling ex change, uncurreat money, promissory notes, stocks, or other securities not bona tide at the time his own property, and actually on hand, shall be liable, lq addition to all other penalties provided in such cases, to pay fifty per centum in addition to the rate of duty of one fifth of one per centum on sales or contracts f?The^committee struck out the proviso that all railroad, steamboat, ferryboat, and bridge cor porations shall have tne right to add the duty or tax imposed to their rates of faro whenever their liability thereto may commence, any lim itations which may exist by law, or by any agreement with any peraon or company which may have paid or be'liable to pay such fare, to tbe contrary notwithstanding. The tax on companies is increased to two and a half per centum on the gross receipts of such companies. National Agricultural association.

Mrs. White went Soutbi with only the ordinary pass whieh the Presi dent gives to those persons whom he permits to go. The President's pass did not perm't Mrs. White to take with her anything but or dinary baggage, nor did she attempt to take anything more. The President's pass did not exempt her baggage from tbe usual inspection, and her baggage did undergo the usual inspec tion. General Bntler found no contraband goods or letters in her baggage.
