THE EVENING STAR W. P. WALLA* H, Editor and Proprietor. WASHINGTON CITY: FRIDAY .....JCIiY 8, 1S61. EXTRA. Important IVew/i* The Enemy Retreat From Before Fred erick-lien. Wallace Pursuing? Rein forcements Going Rapidly Forward. BAtTiMoa*. July 8?11 a. m.?Despatches from Frederic*, received at headquarters this morning. say that the enemy retreated during the night from before that city, and that Gen Wallace is pursuing. ? Reinforcements are rapidly going forward. FROM HARPER'S FERRV. The Rebels Meet a Sharp Repulse. There is no doubt, we apprehend, that while tfce rebel General Early was yesterday prepar ing to attack our left near Maryland Heights, his force was vigorously attacked by a portion of Sigel's troops, and to punished as to frus trate r.well's plans for the time being. He was thus given more than he could do successfully to defend himself. BIGII. SUPERSEDED. We learn that Brigadier Gen. A. P. Howe. Chief of Artillery of this Department, (of Washington) has been ordered to the command ot our forces in front of the rebel force that has ei tered Maryland, vice Gen. Sigel, ordered te report to Gen. Hunter. Gen. Howe is an of ficer of great energy, activity and experience, and will prove very valuable to the country in his new position He is in command there this morning. FROM THE FKOST. All <)uiet?Lota of Baker's Ca val ry in Wil son's Raid Lens than Reported. The mail steamer John Brooks arrived at the 6th street wharf this morning at eight o'clock, from City Point, which place she left yesterday morning at ten o'clock. She brings no news, and reports ail quiet at the front. Colonel Conger and Major Curtis, of the 1st District of Columbia cavalry, who were re ported killed or captnred in the late raid with Wilson, came up as passengers on the John Brooks. Major Curtis made several narrow escapes, his clothing being perforated with bullets. Colonel Conger is severely, but not dangerously wounded, and hopes to be soen in the saddle aeain. These officers reached our lines on Friday last with a portion of their 1 command, after several severe engagements > with the rebels. The 1st District cavalry is not so badly cut ! np as w as first reported, many of the missing i having succeeded in gaining our lines. Their | entire loss, in killed, wounded and missing, will not amount to more than one hundred. FROM MARTINSBURG. Particulars oi the Rebel Raid There. A Mr. Richardson, a refugee from Martins burg for now the fifth Ume, was in the city this morning, having left Martinsburg the eveniBg of July 1. He saw the rebel entry at cr.e o'clock, and reports the rebel force that i entered there at not more than 1,500 cavalry and mounted infantry. Sigel held them at bav long enough to have all the rolling stock and property of the railroad sent off. and also all \ Government property; and then he fell ba^k successfully. Such Government property as could not be brought away was burned. Our informant thinks the rebels at Martinsburg were commanded by Imboden. ORDERED. Aasisuint Engineer Samuel V. Stillings, of this city, has been ordered to report in Boston, 1 Mass , to Admiral StriBgham for passage in the United States steamer Circassian to the EastGulf squadron, where he will be assigned to dutv on the United States steamer Summer sett. Engineer Stillings leaves this city to morrow, and carries with him the best wis hea of a large circle of friends.

Johnacn's forces, not Bushrod Johnson, as re ported, and our cavalry, consisting of the tigbth lllinoi" and other commands. The enemy hold Middletown, and Early, this morning, passed within four miles of Freder ick, taking a po?i'ion on the mountain that distance west of th? city. About daylight the enemy were driven through Middletown, when they were supported by some artillery posted in the road, and our small pursulngforce were forced to retire. During the moming a brisk artillery duel occurred between four and six roibs from the city, and considerable damage was sustained on either side by exploding shells. General L?ew. Wallace has sent additional artillery to the front from the Monocaty, and o'her troops are on their way, which it would not be wise to speak. REPORTS FROM SANDY HOOK. Savbt Book, July??1 p. m., via Balti moki-From the tact that no two persons agree as to the rebel force or object, it is dif ficult to silt the truthout of rumors. It seems, however, certain that last night a portion at least of the rebel* crossed the Potomac near Antietam, as they appeared this morning on the Maryland side, and brisk skirmishing has been going on before Fort Duncan.

THE DESTRUCTION OF THE PIRATE ALABAMA. Official Recognition of the Gallantry of (apt. AY inflow and the Officers and Crew of the Kearsarge. Secretary Welles has sent foCapt Winslow, of the Kearsarge, the following handsome re cognition of his gallant services in the destruc tion of the pirate Alabama: Navy Department, 6th July, 1881. Sir: Your very brief dispatches of the 19th ar.d 'Jtnh ultimo, informing the Department that the piratic al craft Alabama, or 2B0, had been sunk on the lfth of June, near meridian, by the Kearsarge, under your command, were this dav received. I congratulate you on your good fortune in meeting this vessel, which had so long avoided the fastpst ships and some of the most vigilant and intelligent officers of the service; and for the ability displayed in this combat you have the thank3 of the Depart ment. You will please express to the officers and crew of the Kearsarge the satisfaction of the Government at this victory over a vessel super ior in tonnage, superior in the number of guns and superior in the number of her crew. The battle was so brief, the victory so decisive, and the comparative results so striking that the country will be reminded of the brilliant ac tions of our infant navy which have been re peated and illustrated in this engagement. The Alabama represented the best maritime effort of the most skilled English workshops. Her battery wac composed ol the well tried 32 pounders of 57 cwt.,?of the famous (iJ pounder of the British Navy, and of the only success ful rifled 100-pounder yet produced in England. The crew were generally recruited in Great Britain, ard many of them received superior training on board her Majesty's gunnery ship, the Excellent. The Kearsarge is one of the flrstj^unboa's tuilt at our navy-yards at the commencement ot the rebellion, and lacks the improvements of vessels now under construction. The principal gur.s composing her battery had never been previously tried in an exclusively naval en gagement: 3*et in one hour you succeeded in Kinking your antagonist, thus fitly ending her predatory career, and killed many of her crew, without injuiy to the Kearsarge.or the loss of a single life on your vessel. Our countrymen have reason to be satisfied that in this, "as in every naval action of this unhappy war, neither the ships, the guns, nor the trews have been deteriorated: but that they maintain the ability and continue the re nown which have ever adorned our naval an nals. The President has signified hi3 intention to recommend that you receive a vote ot thanks, in order that you may be advanced to the grade of Commodore. Lieut. Commander Jas. S.

S. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. Latest from tbe Rebel Raiders* The Enemy have Retreated from Harper's Ferry?The Reports about a Large Rebel Force in front of Frederick and at South Mountain all Sensation Canards?Hunter in the Rear of the Enemy at Martins* burg?Harper's Ferry Reoccupied by our Troops?The Enemy taking the Back Track Generally. Baltimore, July s, 12.30.? Advices from Harper's Ferry this morning, show the Rebels have left there. The force ii? front of Frederick yesterday, is not believed to have exceeded two thousand. The story told by the prisoner taken, of their bavirg a large force beyond South Mountain' is probably mere boast. At all events no very large force of the enemy has yet been discov ered by onr scouts or reconnoitering parties. The special dispatches sent from here that 50 or tiO miles of the railroad has been destroyed is merely a sensational picture. The officers of the road assure us that with their facilities for obtaining information which are certainly quite equal to auy others, they have nothing to warrant any such statement, on the contrary all their information goes to show that thus far little damage has been done to the road, the enemy being too much occupied in gathering plunder to devote much attention to destroying the track. The road is certainly all right westward from a point about 10 miles west of Martinshurg, and from Harper's Ferry eastward to B&lti more. Thus the rebels so far have only held or operated upon about 2r, miles of the road. Hunter Is supposed by this time to have reached a point not far west of Martinsburg, and poFsiblv has already struck a blow at the enemy in the rear. There is no excitement here, as telegraphed North. Our people are confident and as cool as tbe weather will permit. Baltimobk, July ".?A special dispatch to the American from Frederick at I p. m. to day, says the rebels have retreated fully four miles from their position of yesterday, on the road to Boonsboro' and Hagerstown. Gen. Wallace and staff are actively engaged. Everything looks well. Frederick is in no danger. One gun was captured yesterday by us.

THE r?NDlMWD ME*, C?rnrlius Tuell H?as at 1 o'clock-Peter ??Odea's seatence U?muN-Tw]|'i Appearance and tondi||0?i_Oriai Is and Incidents of the Execution. This Friday, Jnly S is the day fixed fcr the execouon of Cornelius Tnell. couvicted at tho March term of the murder of hts wife in Feb ruary last, and for tlx1 execution of peter Geotfen, (colored.) convicted at the I)-cember term of the murder of George Banks, (colors \ in November last. The circumstances connected with those cases will probably be remembered. (JooO'n wassns. pe?ied by Bnnks of being the paramour of h>s (Banks'; wife, aud Banks attemp-ed to put him out of bis house, when a scuffle took place, in which Banks' wife carae up and h?ld ner hus band while Gooden stabbed him, causing hi* d< a b. Good, n way tried at th^ TK?<ember term of the court. Bis counsel, Mr. Beall. took ex ceptions, which wore overruled; and on the last dsi of the March t?-rm he received his sen tence, with stony indifference. Tuell will be remembered as the person who murdered his wife with circnmstanees of dia bolical atrocity. He had been in the habit of ill treating her for a long time. In February last he committed the murder, by beating her horn, bly with a hammer. Heafterwards placed the corpse in bed with his two \ oung children, and subsequently conveyed it to Glen wood Gem etery, where it was interred hastily and with out ceremony, hi? allegation being that she had died of small-pox. The fact of the corpse being taken away so secretly came to the knowledge of the police, and they ser te work to ferret ont the tacts: when a coroner's inquest was held, and the body exhumed at the Cemetery: aud on examination it was found that she had been beaten almost to a jelly. Tuell was arrested, and at the March term was tried, when, among other witnesses, the little son of the flec^sed testified against his father. The trial excited a great deal of interest at the time, and the deed was regarded as one of the mest atrocious ever known in this District. Gooden whs formerly a slave and came from Elizabeth City, North Carolina, which he left two years since, getting with the Engineer brigade, Gen. Benham, in which he cooked for a mess and with the brigade came to this city where he had been residing s months previous to the murder. Good-n is said to be a very orderly man by tho^e who know him. His father nnd mother are dead, and two of his brothers are in the army. Some of his sisters are in Dixie, and one is In Philadelphia, to whom he had written several letters which failed to reach her, and therefore he ha:t no tidings lrom her. On hi3 trial he exhibited hardihood that was generally remarked, but from the time of bis conviction he seemed gradually to realize his situation and lately exhibited mnch feeling Since his sentence ho has had religious instructions from Rev. Father Walter, of St. Patrick's church, who frequently visited him and doubtless he had prepared himself to meet his fate. Yasterdaf he ex pressed himself as ready to die, although he asserted that it would not be long before some Eeople would find out that he was not guilty, e had for some days been hopefnl of receiv ing a pardon or commutation, hnt as the time drew near he seemed te lose all and exhibited considerable feeling. On Wednesday the jailor, Mr Milburn, went to hisjcell and read to him the death warrant, when he shed tears freely and promised to prepare for the change, ex pressing the belief that the Lord would tafce him to himself. He is inclined to be supersti ious and is averse to being left without a light in his cell, fancjing he sees spirits wken he Is in dakness Both the condemned men have been confined in cells opening iu the same corridor, and in consequence of the extreme heat of the weather they have been allowed the run of the corridor. It was in this corridor that, within a fewdavs, they were so fiercely attacked by a mad dog, the particulars of which were given in th9 Star at the time. Tuell escaped from th? dog by sheltering himself in his ceil, nnd Goodin by clambering to a window, where by almost frantic efforts, he managed to keep the dog away from him until assistance reached him. Tuell, of whom we can learn but little, has been in the city several vears, for the most of the time serving as a waiter at the National Hotel, and subsequently he drove a hack for the keeper of the hotel stables. He asserted that this was the first scrape he got into. When the sentence was parsed upon him he was to tally unnerved, aHd for awhile was very ill, but with proper nursing had measurably re covered, although be had changed considera bly. his complexion having become very fair, lie seemed very apprehensive lest some of his friPiids and relatives should know his end, and expressed the hope that some of them would never learn how he died, Since the sentence, Tuell, who for some time had a lingering hope that his sentence would be commuted, has been preparing his soul for eternity, being almost constantly engaged in reading religions books or meditating on his fate. He stated that he knew nothing of the transaction, that he was drunk at the time, and that there were many things said about him of which he has no knowledge. Rev. Father Walter ha3 been assiduous in his attentions to Tuell, who expresses himself as bem*; fully prepared to meet his God. Mr. Milburn, the Jailor, went to Tnell'a ceil on Wednesday, and informed him that he carae to read to him the death warrant, when Tuell stated that he would rather not hear It; but when he was informed by Mr. Milburn that it was his duty to read it he acquiesced, and heard it read more composedly than it was anticipated. THE OALT.OW8. The gallows was erected in the jail yard, north of and close to the building, ia March last, for the execution of Jeremiah Hendricks, white, for the murder of D?nnis Sullivan, and Emanual Pollard, colored, for the murder of George Butler, on the 1st of April, since which time it has stood Its dimensions are as fol lows : Height of uprights supporting the beam, twenty-two feet; height of platform, twelve feet from the ground, and twelve feet square. One foot higher than the level of the platform is the fatal trap, which was formerly five feet by five, but has bee:: enlarged to eleven feet by five, Hiking it of a size to allow the execution of lour persons at the same time. The rope is of the best manilla. procured from the Navy Yard, al:er several pieces of rope from the stores of this city had been broken under the test weight of 225 pounds. The rope is made fast to a cleet on either upright, and passing over the benm the two nooses prepared for Tuel and Gooden hung something over three feet apart. This scaffold ha.> been already baptised to its prim missicn, having served for the execution of no less than four noted criminals:?Wood ward. hung some years ago fortbemnrder of his wife: James Power, hung for the murder of young Lutz-, John Conrad Kessler, a sol. dier, hung iu the Old Capitol prison yard De cember 5, 1862, for the murder of Lieut. Fer nando Linzy; and Augustus Ford, colored, hung on the 3d of March of last year, for the murder of Geo-Adams, colored. THE EXECUTION. Early this morning Father Walter, of St. Patrick 'a Church, went to the cell of the con demned men, and administered to them the consolations of religion. Both appeared calmer this morning than they have been for some days pas', ieeling that their fate was inevitable. The time designated for the execution w between i2 and 2 o'clock, and before the hour first named, there seemed to be but little of the usual stirabout the jail ontside; but at 12 the windows of houses near bj began to be thronged with eager gazers, and some crawled upon the roofs of porches of houses, a few per sons getting upon tops of houses, and some boys crawled up trees and a telegraph pole overlooking the yard in which the gallows was located. A rather large crowd of men, women and children also eventually gathered outside of the wall surrounding the jail grounde, aud remained there until the tragedy was over. The wife of Tuell's wife's brother paid a parting visit to her relative a little before 12 o'clock, and was admitted to his ceil, when she shed tears and kissed' bira affectionately, and clasped his hand when bidding him fare well. Both the condemned men have for a long while been receiving religious consolarion.and Tuell has lately appeared extremely peuiteat, and expressed much solicitude tor h <s children. He said he would have preferred imprison ment for life in order to save his children from the disgrace and mortification of having their father hanged. At 12 o'clock, such persons as had been ad mttted to be present were ushered Into the yard containing the gallows,which is fnlly described abo ve. The ropeB dangling from the cross p lecn were of the best manilla, aud fl ve-elghtha of an inch in diameter. It was obtained at the Navy Yard, (there being no rope of tbe same size in the city strong enough,) for the purpose ot hanging Kendricks and Pollard, last April, ai d was thea subjected to a test of 915 pound*. Yesterday it was further tested by a weight of pounds dropped a distance of five feet. The prisoners confined on the north side of tt e jail t^ccupied every available spot at thmr w>ndcw bars, but they did not seem to be much Impressed with the solemn scene about to be ei.acu-d, bn-joked with each other addressing banering questions to persons below. Ai 12J* o'clock Tnell was brought down stars into the corridor of the J*?l accompanied by Fat! er Walter, two of the jail guards and a et nileir.an, one of a party of members of St. Patrick*?Chnrch w bo were requested by Father Waiur to take charge ot Vneil's remains, h? hiving rfo immediate relatives or friendain this country. Tu ll was dressed ia ablaekcoat, bine pants, and a ecropnkwisly clean while Ht.i.'t oirened in front, displaying a scarlet aa- ? d<-rf*bir?. GoocUfi not witti Tn*U. mid thiHi It W** dlx" overed that hie sentence had bsea com ?nutml. , ? Gooden, as the t-lme drew near lor theexecu- , tioa, was allowed the range of tbe corridor m front of hLs c'l. which wuos the second flooi to the left of the stairway. and showed himself lreqnen'ly at the window, probably to take a lock at the scaffold, which \rns prepared part ly for him, but of which little could be seen from the position he occupied. He appeared to be perfectly reconciled to bis Impending fate. At about 25 rninnte* past 12 o'clock, how. ever. while the preparations were beinc made for bis execution, Mr. K. M. Heale, his coun sel, arrived at the jail, bearing a commutation of sentence Gooden was at once brought down into the private room of the Warden, (Mr. Feall,) when he showed some little emo tion, and was a-ned by the Warden if h* would accept a commutation of sentence. to which lie replied in the affirmative. Mr. Ileal* then read to him ihe commutatiou of the Pres id^n to imprlaonment for lite, whicb vates "that alter an examination into the ca>e, 1 have reason to believe that the Si t wa.- com mitted aader provocation and In hot blood, aid the crime is manslaughter rather than murder." At 25 minutes of one o'clock. Tuell, sup ported by Father Walter and twooftheoflicera ot the jail, made his appearance at the north door ot the jail. with the black shroud upon his person, which had b"en placed upon him in the corridor. He w: s verv pale, hut hi> step was firm, and as he emerged from the door he smiled faintly and waved his hand to those present in token ot farewell; saying in a Jeeble voice, "Good-bye " His tread remained steady until he reached the steps leading to the gallows, when he trembled slightly, but he quickly regained bis composure and ascended, grasping the haiiustrade with his right band Father Walter here for a moment or two er.gaged in religions exercises with him. and at nineteen minutes of one o'clock the rope was adjusted around his neck, and lie was then asked if he bad anything to say. He replied in a voice so low as to be heard by no one but hi*, spiritual adviser aud the guards near him. and said he was prepared to die, and forgave all as he hoped to be forgivea: and his last wor Is were a request to Father Walter to look after his children. * Tuell then shook hands with Father Walter: his legs and arms were then tied, the guards took him by the hand, the blcck cap was ad justed. the bolts were drawn, a slight click was heard, the trap fell, and, at fifteen minute* of one o'clock, the soul ot Cornelius Tuell took its eternal flight. There was scarcely a per ceptible quiver as lie fell, except that bia fin gers twitched, but so slightly that it could only be noticed by those standing near him The body was allowed to hang until 1 o'clock, whin hi? coffin, wjiich v. as a plain one of pine, staited, five feet ten inches long, ( Tuell being five toot six, and unltued, was brought tinder the trap) and Tuell was lowered and examined by I>r Noble Young, who pronounced him dead, bis neck having been broken by the fall. The fall wits between 3*$ and 4 feet. 1 he body was placed in the coffin, arrayed in the clothes in which he wa3 hnng, and wa? kept at the jail until two o clock, wheu it was taken in charge by ;icommittee of members ot St. Patrick's Church, who will have it decent ly interred in Mount Olivet Cemetery, beside the remains of one or two ot Tuell's children. (iooden hud appeared frequently at the win dows of bis cell belore he received notice ol the commutation of his sentence, but after wards did not make his appearance, tin coffin (one like Tuell's) was also at the jali, and ready for the reception of his remain>. fchouid he be executed. The execution was couducted in an orderly manner thronghou , under the direction of it. M. Heale, the warden, and B. Milburn, jailor. A large police force, under command ot Ser geant Cronin, was in attendance for the preser vation of order. _ Affairs in Osorretowk.-The boatmen on the canal are recovering from their fright, and begin to take way-bills to return to the upper sections of the canal.
