Frem the Valley of Virginia?Invasion of Maryland?Fighting at Willlainsport and fthepherdstown?Harper's Ferry Kvac??ted?Retreat ?( Rebel* from the F?inl< ?( Racks?Defeat of Rebels at South Branch?Fight Going on at Mary. land Heights. ^ It w.is reported and believed on Monday morning (the 4th) that Hagerstown was in possession of the enemy, the operators at that place having left their posts between 9 and 10 o'clock, abruptly, under an alarm. They re turned to duty, however, about 1 o'clock, aad reported the town all quiet, and no enemy nearer than Falling Waters and Williamsport, from six to ten miles distant on the Potomac, where, it was said, on Monday afternoon that fighting was going on. The same account also says that fighting was going on at or near'Sharpsburg?the Federal forces being commanded by Gen. Sigel. Pre I vlous reports from Harper's Ferry had located ! Gen. Sigel, during Sunday night, at Shepherds ! town, to which point he had fallen back from Martinsburg, and where a junction was formed with him by Mulligan, with the force from the i Leetown fight of Sunday, ten miles below. This joint force, it was thought, would move to the Maryland side of the Potomac, to succor I that place if attacked. An attack was made upon Harper's Ferry about 9 or 10 o'clock on Monday morning, by ! a force estimated at some 2,000 cavalry, with more than as many infantry. Gen. Weber, however, set about a vigorous defense, and up i to the latest accounts was holding his own, I though with a small force compared to that of the enemy. i Nothing had been heard up to 2 p. m. at Har per's Ferry from Gen. Sigel or Mulligan's i forces, which is accounted for, perhaps, by the Hagerstown story of their Demg again engaged opposite Sbepherstown, to which point they ! must have been followed. Alter 2 o'clock in the afternoon the wires were interrupted near Harper's Ferry, on the east side, and the operator at Point of Rock? was understood to report that a body of cavalry had crossed the Potomac there, and interrupt ed the telegraph In the meantime the excitement at Frederick ' continuing, all the sick from the hospitals, with the provost guard of the town, were removed, j the former goicg to Annapolis. The Govern j ment stores were also moved from Frederick, as they had previously been successfully from i Harper's Ferry. No reason is giveu for this movement from Frederick, as no hostile forces i were known to be within twenty miles of the place, except a cavalry detachment near the Point of Rocks, twelve miles off. Gen. E. B Tyler remained at Monocacy, in command of Gen. Wallace's forces, that point being the extreme western limit of this De partment, and protecting the great railroad bridge over the Monocacy river, three miles fiom Frederick, bnt no sign of the enemy ap peared up to Monday night. The object and extent of the whole move ment are as yet a mystery. The accounts also vaiy as to the officers in command. Major Gen. Ransom is believedto have charge of the cavalry, and he is said to be Stuart's successor. The objectof theenemy may be inferred to be regarded as an import ant fine by Gen. Lee. THe infantry force is said to be commanded by Gen. Early, who is reported to be Ewell's successor. Ewell's late corps probably now numbers not more than ten or twelve thousand men. Other reports name Breckinridge, Im boden. Jenkins, and even Wheeler, as the leaders; but both Southern Jenkinses were killed in the present campaign: Wheeler is known to be in Tennessee or Georgia, and Breckinridge's presence in the Valley is very doubtful. Later Accounts. At 10 o'clock on Monday night the operator returned to Point of Rocks, and the telegraph communication was renewed to th&t point. The rvbel cavalry had returned to the south side ot the Potomac, after destroying miny things in and around the Point ot Rocks. The telegraph between the Ferry and the Point of Rocks, which was also destroyed, would be in working order again to-day. Nothing was received oa Monday night from the Ferry or from General Sigel. At a late hour on Monday night a dispatch was received from General Kelly, at Cumber land, via Wheeling, in which be stated that the rebels were shelling his forces stationed at South Branch Bridge, an important railroad station about sixteen miles west of Cumber land. He was making all the defense he could; the enemy were in large force. It was thought that the enemy intended to bnrn the bridge, (which is a three-span bridge, forty feet high,) so as to prevent General Hunter's forces from reaching the scene of operations from the Kanawha. General Max Weber was compelled to give up Harper's Ferry and fall back to the Mary land Heights, on the north side of the river. His force was not large enough to cope with the enemy. Generals Sigel and Mulligan reached Mary land Higbts about 9 p. m. on Monday night from Sharpsburg, where they had fought all day on Monday. This large reinforcement doubtless ensures the safety of the position of Gen. Weber, opposite Harper's Ferry. The enemy occupy Harper's Ferry in force, and was shelling Sigel's forces on Monday night across the riveT. The firing yesterday morning at Maryland Hights show that it is holding still, and Gen. Sigel has warned the citizens ol Harper's Ferry that he would shell the town at noon to drive the enemy out. It is not known what has become of the force that fought Sigel at Sharpsburg on Monday. The enemy seem to have distributed their men so widely that it is difficult to tell their numbers. It is now saidpositively that Ransom is their chief cavalry officer, and^hat Early is in com mand of their infantry. 9 The rebel force on the south side of the Po tomac, opposite the Point ol Rocks and up to the Ferry, can be seen from the opposite shore, bnt they had made no further demonstration at last accounts. The railroad is clear from this city to the river opposite Ferry. Scouts and citiwn refugees report the forces of the rebels, as having passed through Win chester, at 15.000 infantry and 4,000 cavalry, while other well-informed persons only esti mate the force altogether at from 8,000 to 12,000. A despatch from Cumberland, via Wheeling and Pittsburg, says that Gen. Kelley has suc cessfully defended tb? Baltimore and Ohio railroad bridges at Patterson's Creek and at the north and south branches of the Potomac, where block-bouses and iron-clad caissons have been placed. No danger was done to the road or bridges, and the enemy had all been driven back eflectually, being but a tew cavalry ot an independent or local command. The Very Latest. At six o'clock last evening an attack was about being made upon Maryland Heights, where General Sigel's whole force was con centrated and formed in line of battle for de fense. Very little information of the details of the progress of the siege of Maryland Heights could be obtained, owing to there being no trains running that far up the road, and the telegraph operator not being in a position to understand the true condition or affairs, other than the fact that Maryland Heights was still in Gen. Sigel's possession. Four railroad trains, loaded with govern ment supplies, as well as the mail train from Harper's Ferry, that went up on Monday, and was intercepted by Moseby on its return, were all worked through from Harper's Ferry to Baltimore successfully yesterday afternoon, without the slightest loss. They were fired at, however, very earnestly, from the Virginia side opposite to the Point of Rocks. No damage to the railroad has vet been reported, excepting about thirty feet over Patterson's Ureek bridge, six miles east or Cumberland, which Was done on Monday morning last, and yesterday entirely re paired. No news of a public nature was received after six o'clock last evening from points this side of Harper's Ferry, and the result of the fight at Maryland Heights was not known.? Baltimore Sun, 6th. The Baltimore America* says: , On Monday arteraoon, about 4 o'clock, i the regular mail train was approaohing the Point ot Rocks from Harper's Ferry, a canal boat was seen lying in the canal oa fire, aad the suspicions of the engineer of the train, Mr. Darby, ot this city, were aroused that some thing was wrong ahead. He siackenced the speed of the train, moving very cautioasly | until be had nearly reached the Point of Books, when be was euddenlv brought to a sia >d j stilt by the discharge of a volley of musketry ! at bu engine by a party of Mose&y's guerrillas, ! some thirty or forty ia number. The engineer fortunately was not injured, bat the fireman was shot ia the side, aad died on Monday nliht. The wlldett excitement aad o?afa?iea an. sued among tne passengers, a large n amber of whom were ladies?many leaping from the csrs aad taking refuge la the woods aad m?aa tairs.

Very llttia Information ot details of the pro gress of tbe siege of Harper's Ferry and Miry land Heights conld be obtained, o wins to there being no trains rnnning that far np the road, and the telegraph operator not being In a posi tion to understand ffee true condition of affairs, other than tbe fact tbat the defense was obvi ously sttcceaefnl, in view of the Heights still being in Stgel's possession. , It may not be improper to stata that whatev er damage the enemy may undertake in their present movement must be quickly effected, or they will meet such opposition iu force* mov ing upon them from the West as to relieve all apprehension about results. Four railroad trains loaded with Govern ment supplies, as well as the mail train from Harper's Ferry, that went up on Monday and was intercepted by Moseby on Its return, were all worked through Irom Harper's Ferry to Baltimore successfnlly yesterday afternoon without the slightest loss. They were fired at, however, very spiritedly from the Virginia side, opposite Point of Rocks. In addition to the movement of troops from the West, heavy reinforcements were yester day sent up the road from this side. General Wallace was at the Relay House superintend ing and directing their movement. Passengers who arrived here last night by the Western Maryland Railroad, from Hagers town, report all quiet at that city. There were no arrivals from Cumberland ?r any other point west of Hrgerstown. The Latest. SO BATTLE VICT?BPTIMATE OF THE REBEL PTBBNOTH?OENBBAL HUNTEB COMIHU EAST WARD. Later dispatches from Sandy Hook, on the Maryland side of Harper's Ferry, show that no engagement had taken place up to 9 o'clock last night, further than picket firing. Tbe pon toon bridge there had been taken up, and two spans of the railroad bridge removed by our troops on withdrawing from Harper's Ferry. The rebels had set lire to the Virginia side of the bridge, which was then burning: our men, in attempting to extinguish the flames, were fired upon by shr rpshooters in town and com pelled to desist. There is no rebel lorce east of Harper's Fer K, except on the Virginia side at Point of jcks. The road is unobstructed as far as Sandy Hook. Rumor, but nothing more, says that tbe force of rebels opposite Point of Rocks is under command of Gen. Ross, which, if true, would imply the presence there ofa con siderable force, but this is doubtful. At all events we have now at Point of Rocks a suffi cient force to hold that point azainst any op posing: force likely to bs brought against it. Nothing definite is known as to the strength or movements of the rebels west of Harper's Ferry. Tbe largest estimated strength of the force at Harper's Ferry is 4,000, infantry and cavalry. Up to last evening Haeerstown was not occupied, nor was there any rebel force near there. It is known that Gen. Hnnter has reached the Parkersburg road, and is moving rapidly eastward.

IMPORTANT FROM HARPER'S FERRY. -?? llnnter's Troops Arriving there Rapidly to Reinforce Sigel?The Enemy believed to be not more than Six or Eight Thousand Strong. Baltimore, July C.?The mail train for Sandy Hook, opposite Harper's Ferry, left this morning as usual. Hunter's forces are rapidly arriving from the west, and will no doubt soon confront the rebels. The enemy still retain possession of the Vir ginia side of the river at Harper's Ferry. Si gel, with his force, holds Maryland Heights. All indications thus far strengthen the con viction that the forces of the enemy do not ex ceed six or eight thousand men, and that it is 6imply a plundering expedition. Nothing new. FROM HARPER'S FERRY, H&GERS TOWN AND FREDERICK. Great Panic there in fear of Rebel Inva sion? The People more Scared than Hnrt. We have the following information from parties who left Hagerstown at 7 o'clock on Monday morning. At that time none of the rebels were on this side of the Potomac, but they had a picket Hue extending from opposite Williamsport to within a short distance of the Point of Rocks, on the south side of the Poto mac. They occasionally show themselves in considevable numbers, especially in the vicin ity of the Point of Rocfcs.. The river is very low, and fordable at different places. On Sunday night a squad of fifteen rebel cavalrymen crossed to the Maryland side and stole a number of horses, and then returned. During Sunday night, and before daylight Monday morning, they appeared to be moving down the river in the direction of Frederick, for the purpose, it is thought, of destroying the important railroad bridge over the Monocacy. They seem to have abandoned the Intention, If ttey entertained it, but had they attempted it they would have met with a warm reception, as there* are two strong forts erected on the heights near the bridge, which will be able to sweep ail approaches to it. The news of the appearance of the rebels caused no little excitement at Frederick. All the Government property and the sick and wounded from the hospitals of that city were at once removed to a place of safety. The excitement at Hagerstown on Sunday night and Monday morning was intense. The merchants were busily engaged in sending their goods into the Interior of Pennsylvania, over the Hagerstown and Chambersbnrg rail road. which was still in running order. In consequence of the severe losses heretofore sustained by the merchants of the town, ana in anticipation of the possibility ot another raid, they have but small stocks of goods oh hand, and were the rebels to visit Hagerstown with the expectation of getting any amount of supplies, they would be greatly disap pointed. The cashiers of the Hagerstown and Wash ington County Banks have removed the effect* Of their banks to Harrisbnrg for safety. The millers of Washington county, of whom there are a large number, are also sending their flour out of harm's way.

Boatmen Report the Enemy to be Crossing at Various Points?Scary Rumors. - Considerable excitement wa* created in Georgetown this morning by the statements brengbt in by the boatmen coming down the canal, ?tao report the rebels crossing the Po tomac at nearly every lordabto point from Harper's Ferry down to Muddy Branch, this side df Senoca, and less tliau twenty mile3 from Georgetown. Th# panic-stricken boatmen estimate the rebel force vrtriously from twenty to forty thousand strong, eavalry and infantry! These reports may be set down as, one and all, tUe exaggerations of panicky fugitives seeking to make the best possible excuse for their own skedaddliug. The river is unusual ly low, and is fordable at almost all points, and it is not improbable that squads of rebels have crossed tlx different places on horse-stealing expeditions. Despite the sensation reports via HarrisbuVg, we cannot see in this rebel demon stration anything more than a movement for plunder by an inconsiderable force of the en eEHunter and Sigel (now in conjunction) aided by other forces sent trom this quarter, ought to be able now to turn the table upon the rebels, and put them on the defensive. It is certain that the rebels did not expect that Hunter would so soon appear on the field of action, and supposed they would have nobody to con front tbem but Sigel. Since writing the above another report has been brought into Georgetown to the effect that during tlje Ulght the rebels (cavalry) some 7, (too strong, fdrded the Potomac at Muddy Branch, forcing the detachment of 2d Massachusetts cavalry guarding the ford to fall back to the Chain Bridge, at which point they arrived this morning, bringing down all the canal boats between Muddv Branch and the Chain Bridge. We give the story for wh? it may be worth, being confident, however, that whatever grains of truth there may be in It that it l". quite certain that rumor of the sort above mentioned always magnifies numbers at least twenty fold. Should it turn out that the rebels have made any crossing at Muddy Branch, we are confident that the raiding party numbers less hundreds than this rumor gives them thous ands. FROM FRANCE. The Pirate Semmes to be provided with a New Alabama built in England. The Secretary of the Navy has received the following despatch: Nkw York, JulyO, 1^.?Hon. Gideon Welles, Secretary r>f (he Navy?Sir ". The Asia arrived at Halifax this morning. The Paris Patrie states as follows: ''Semmes has announced that on the 15th of yyigust he will embark on the new ^labama, which will then be completed. Seamen of the old Alaba ma will continue to receive pay and form part of the crew of the new cruiser." Kuraor point* to the steamer Rappahannock, the ex-British war vessel which stole away from Sheerness to Calais, as likely to be the vessel for Semmes. Respectfully, E. S. SANFORD. OFFICIAL REPORT BY CAPT. WINS LOW OF THE DESTRUCTION OF THE ALABAMA. Semmes Challenges him to Fight?The t'hallf-iige Accepted?Galltnl Conduct of the t'rew and Officers of the Kearsage? The Carnage upon the Alabama Dread - inl. The Navy Department has received the fol | lowing official report from Capt. Wlnslow, of the Kearsage: U.S. Steamer Rearslq*, Cherbourg, France, June 19, 1564.?Sir: I have the honor to inform the Department that the day subsequent to the arrival of the Kearsage off this port, on the 14th inst., I received a note from Capt. Semmes, begging that the Kearsage would not depart, as he intended to fight her, and would not de lay her but a day or two. According to this notice the Alabama left the port of Cherbourg this morning at about 9 30 o'clock. At 10.20 a. m. we discovered her, steer log towards us. Fearing the ques tiou of juris diction might arlBe, we steamed to sea until a distance of six or seven miles was attained from the Cherbourg breakwater, when we rounded to and commenced steaming for the Alabama As we approached her within about 1,200 yards she opened fire, we receiving two or three broadsides before a shot was returned. The action continued, the respective steamers making a circle round and round, at a distance of about nine hundred yards from each other. At the expiration of an hour the Alabama struck, going down In about twenty minutes afterwards* and carrying many persons with her. It affords me great satisfaction to announce to the Department that every officer and man did their duty, exhibiting a degree of coolness and fortitude which gave promise at the out set of certain victory. I have the honor to be, most respectfully, your obedient servant, J. A. WissLOw, Captain. Hon. Gideon Weli.es, Sec'ryof the Navy. U.S.S. Keausagu, Cherbourg, France, June 20, l-?4.?Sir: I enclose herewith the Surgeon's report of the casualties on board this vessel In the late action with the Alabama. Although we received some ??> or 30 shots, 12 or 1? taking effect In the hull, by the mercy of God we have been spared the loes of life, whereas In the case of the Alabama the car nage, I learn, was dreadful. The ships were about equal in match, the tonage befog the same. The Alabama carry ing one hundred pound rille, with one heavy 6=.pounder, and six broadside 32-pounders, and the Kearsage carry in g four broadside :$2-pound ers, two lt-lncb, and one 2S-pounder rifle, one gun less than the Alabama. The only shot which 1 fear will give ns any trouble is one hundred pound rifle which en tered our stern po6t and remains at present un exploded. It would seem almost Invidious to particu larize the conduct of any one man or officer in which all had done their duty with a fortitude and coolness which cannot be too highly praised; bat Heel itdne to myexecutive officer Lt. Commander Thornton, who superintended the working of the battery, to particularly mention him for an example of coolness and encouragement ot the men while fighting, which contributed much towards the success of the action. . Very respectfully, your obedient servant, * J. A. Winplow, Captain. Hon. Giduow Welleb, Secy of the Navy. IT. S. S. Kearsage, Cherlurg, France, June 19, lr*64 Sir:?I report the following casual ties from t|ie engagement this morning with the Alabama: John W.

Destructive Firb.?About three o'cloclc thus afternoon, flames were seen issuing from the stable attached to the dwelling of Mr. E Weyzer, on I) street south, between 13 w and and I4th streets, near the Long Bridge, which spread quickly to the house of Mr. Wey/er, which was soon destroyed, as was also the house of Mrs. Farrell, adjoining. A row of Ave frames, belonging to Mr. John Gibson, occupied respectively by Wm. Stew & ?romP? King, W. Talbert, and Wallingsford, soon followed, and as we go to press the frame on the corner of 11th street, the lower part of which is occupied as a store by Mr. Arbnckle, is in flames, as also two new houses below D street. The adjoining property is in great danger, and toe utmost efforts will hardly save it From the scarcity of water tbe firemen, some of whom were early on the ground, were late in getting in service. The fire is thought to have originated from some children setting ofl fire crackers in the stable.
