THE EVENING STAR. W. D. W ALL ATH, Editor anr) Propriet; . WASHINGTON CITY : ?ATlRtf*Y JULY 9, 190T A SERSATIOX REPORT. Frederick. Md., Said to be in Possession of the Rebel Raiders ? Rumor Makes Them IS,000 Sirong. A report has reached here that the rebels made their appear tree last evening 1b front of ?ederick, and after some skirmishing with Oro. Wallace, they en'errd and took posses sion of that place, Geu. Wallace beinsc obliged to tall back, the enemy outnumbering him at the time. The force which entered Frederick is repre sented to be 1},WX) strong, and composed of cav alry, infantry, and some artillery. This information is brought by passengers from the train whuh left Baltimore at 10 o'clock this morning, who heard it from parties coming in trom the region aronnd Frederick. Up to the honr of going to press we have heard nothing mrther confirmatory of the re port. _ another exploit of moseby. He Captures a < avalry Force aear Aldie. with Horses and Accoutrement*.?Rebel Raiders at Fairfax Court House. Ankamdalk, July 8, 1S&4 ? Editor Star? A scout ot 150 men, from the '2d Massachusetts and 13th New York cavalry, under command of Major Forbes, went up iu the vicinity of Aldie, where they met Moseby with a large lorce, with a piece of artillery and riflemen. Moseby charged on them, and killed ten or fifteen and captured nearly the whole party, hordes and accoutrements These horses were well drilled, and o. great value to the tfovern ment. Our cavalry had Spencer's repeating rifles, which will also be of material service to Moseby. This atlair hits stirred up the boys to the highest pitch of indignation. On receipt of the news. Colonel I-owell started oil at mid night with ->00 men from 2d and 1 Jth regiments, and Captain McPhereon, of lt>th New York . cavalry, joined bim at Fairfax, and tliey pro- I coeded to Aldie, where they found iwentv-flve ! wounded men, and eleven dead which they bnried. They sconred the country about that region, and found it was ot no use to pursue Mcseby, as he na<t twelve hours the start of them towards Upperville, where he had taken onr boyfc and his booty. This has been Mose- j by's bravest aud largest capture, and there is something about it almost unaccountable, when we know how efficieut this cavalry force has | been heretofore, 'he numerous times tney have sought Moseby the past year, and the number of captures we have made. Our party returned last evening with the wounded men of the 13th IS'ew York and id Massachusetts cavalry. Captain Stone, of the '2d Masaachnset'B, of Newburyport, is lying dangerously wounded at Centreville. Thirty rebels were at Fairfax Court House yesterday, and some nearer our camp. Ia fact ; we are surrounded by guerrillas. M. S. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. A BATTLE NEAR FREDERICK OX THURSDAY. Defeat of the Rebels by Gen. Wallace?He Captures One Piece ?< Artillery?The En emy Retreat During the Night. [Despatch to the Philadelphia Inquirer.] Fkkdkrick, Jnly K?1 have notified yon ol-beavy skirmishing yesterday morning, in which our forces were forced back on the road from Middletown towards Frederick. The rebels, evidently reinforced, followed up their advantage by pnrsuing close up to onr retiring column. In the meantime G<?n. Wallace hur ried np reinforct-ments under Oen. Tyler, with li s chief of Btaff, Lieut. Col. Lynd Catltn. The rebel force was about l,2U0 in number, com manded by Oen. Bradley T.Johnson, and com posed of cavalry and Infantry, with two pieces of artillery. Johnson, a'ter forcing ns back in the morn ing, succeeded in eluding our forces at Catoc tin Pass, and by 3 o'clock in the afternoon was rapidly approaching Frederick. ?>ome mile and a half beyond the city he was met by Colonel Oilpin, and a brisk engage ment immediately ensued. Colonel Qilpin forming bis line of battle on an eligible ground. Under cover of tbe Are of their three pieces the rebels advanced to the charge, bnt notwith standing the troops ot Oilpin were mostly raw, they met the onset withontilinching, and drove the rebels back. Reforming their lin>* the reb els again advanced t? charge, but our boys, with a constancy worthy of veterans, hurled them back. Not yet satisfied, Johnson essayed it once more, but meeting the same fate, he de sisted from any further attempts, and contented himself with a brisk skirmish fight until night, in which we were still his match. Our losses were about fifty, mostly slightly wonnded. The rebel loss is not known, but is supposed to be heavy. This morning at day. liEhi it was discovered that Johnson had re tired towards Middletown, and our forces b tar ted in pursuit and overtook him near Ca toctin Pass, when brisk skirmishing ensued, but I only know at this moment that the enemy is atlll apparently falling back. Our troope in that direction received such reinforcements this morning as will render the situation per fectly secure. On this peint I don't deem it prudent to say more. We are again in possession of Harper's Fer ry, which indicates that the rebfls have aban doned all attempts against Sigel. I think,from a general glance over tbe whole field, that the days of the rebel ra'd are numbered. Several events which tend to confirm this belief are not yet public property, and I can say no more than liiavein this brief dispatch. THE WAR IN GEORGIA. Reports via Nashville. Nabhvillk, July 7, l>i p. m.?There has been no fighting since June 27, except skir mishing on the extremeright, during the move ment to the Chattahoochee river. The flank movement, which resulted in the evacuation of Kenesaw Mountain, was begun on the evening of the failure of the assault of the 27th. The enemy began the evacuation on the 30th cf.Inne. Johnston is supposed to liave crossed the Chatt&taocchee, and i3 endeavoring to occupy tbe hill on the south s'de of The river, and op posite the month of Nlckajack creek and Vet ler's creek; but persons from the front on the 4th report that opinions then prevailed that they were too late in effecting the crossing at the point named. , ,r Sherman has several good roads converging at Atlanta, which is not over 12 to 15 miles dis tant from the river. We have no positive assurance of the pas sage of tbe Chattahoochee by either army. Probably the first that will be heard positively of thio will be from Oen.

The Report of the Occunat'ou of Frederick by the Confederates Confirmed. The telegraphic news from Baltimore con firms our information givea in our flr3t edition of the occupation of Frederick by the Confed erates. Edward's Ferry, where a portion of the Oon | federate force is reported to have crossed, is | about thirty miles above Wabhinpton. Wallace, at the Monocacy, is posted in a po j sit'on of great strength, and the forces of vel | eran and other troops constantly reach' ? him will be ample to secure him from being d'slodged, and he will speedily in turn be ab'.e to put the enemy on the defensive. We may expect soon to hear stirring newrt from that quarter. LATEST FROM THE FRONT. Artillery Duel Thursday Night?Indica tions of the Cegining of Active Opera tions?Grant Sure of Richmond?Yloee Evidence of Rebel Barbarity. The U. S. mail steamer Highland Light, Cap tain Weeks, arrived here this morn'ng from City Point, which place she lett at 11 o'clock yesterday morning. From parties coming up on her we learu that on Thursday night the rebels brought a battery to bear upon a working party of our: who were engaged in throwing up earthworks nearer to Petersburg, and for awhile a sharp cannonading took place, our men having also brought up a battery to oppose '.hat of the reb els; and that the latter was soon silenced. Sub sequently the rebels took up & new position, and again opened upon our working party, but finding they could accomplish nothing they ceased. W ith this exception all has been quiet for a few days past. But this Is but the preliminary moment of quiet before the storm. Grant never was more hopeful of taking Richmond, never was better prepared and was never be fore so near the accomplishment of his purpose as at this moment. All this may seem para doxical in view of the rebel "Great Calcula tions" of creating a diversion frocn Richmond by their Potomac raid, but it is strictly true as t'me will Bhow. Hon. John Covode, of Pennsylvania, came up on the Highland Light, bringiug up the body of his son, Col.G. K. Covode, of the 1th Pennsylvania cavalry, who was killed while protecting the rear of Sheridan's train, while crossing James riverin its late movement from the'White House to join the main army. Mr. Covode went down on Tuesday, and as the body of the Celonel was in the xebel line3, four of his own company volunteered to search out the spot where he lell. Permission was obtained and they started on their ml"lo i a*Vd got safely through the lines Md iLid The next night General Sheridan t&Mied a company of 40 men, who. under cover or & gunboat detailed for the purpose, landed at St. Marys, In Charles county, and avoiding the rebel pickets, secured the body. His body had been interred by some negroes, who placed boards around the grave. These negroes state that Col. Covode lingered all night and died the morninsc after being wounded. Before he died the rebels took lrooi him his watch, money and valuables, and then stripped him of all his clothing except his 6h?rt. A PIC NIC PARTY SURPRISED BY GUER RILLAS. Yesterday a party of young ladies and gen tlemen had a pic-nic near Falls Church, Va, and in the midst of their pleasures they were surprised at the appearance of about twenty five of Moseby's men, who told them nol to be afraid, and danced a set with the ladies, after which they went to the wagons and devoured the cream and edibles provided for the occa sion. They then made off. EXAMINATION OF COLORED OFFICERS. The total number of colored officers exam ined by the Examining Board up *.o this time is 2,471. Of these, 965 have b?en rejected, and 1,496 recommended. During the week, 2 ? have been examined; and of these, 18 were recom mended and 2 rejected. The 18 were composed as follows : 1 major, 3 captains, 8 first lieuten ants. and 6 second lieutenants. CAPTURE OF UU8H WHACKERS. Thirteen bushwhackers, of a gang of twenty, six, were captured beyond Tenallytown last night. Two of our men were wounded in ma king the capture. THE INVASION OF MARYLAND. Another Fire at Harper's Ferry?Another Advance Towards Frederick?A Fight in Progress. The rebel Invasion of Western Maryland continues to be the exciting topic, and each and every train that reaches this city via the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad trom that sec t ou of the State brings quite a number of refugees. As usual, their statements of the lumber of the rebels, the fights, tec., vary con siderably, and are all gleaned from what they neard. Since Thursday night we learn from official sources the following state of affairs in that region: * ' The rebels hare left Harper's Ferry and Bol ivar Heights, and a brieade of General Sigel's troops (who were on Maryland Heights) have reoccupied those places, and at last accounts held them, their being no Bigns of the enemy in tbat vicinity. The railroad is in workingorder between this city and Sandy Hook, opposite the Ferry, and cars run to that point. There was another extensive fire at Harper's Ferry on Thursday night. The bridge over the Shenandoah was in flames, and a number of buildings in various parts of the town. The enemy bad previously burned the extensive railroad platform, and all the buildings along the line of the Potomac. The conflagration ou Thursday night threw a glow over all the country for miles around. The main body of the rebels is supposed bo be in the neighborhood of Mechanicksburg, watching for the appearance of Gen. Hunter, and the opinion is becoming general that they do not cumber the half or thirty thousand. During Thursday nieht all was quiet near Frederick, though the rebel lines were within a mile of the western limits of the city, occu pying the country back as far as Knobby Mountain. They consisted entirely of cavalry and artillery, and are believed not to have numbered more than fifteen hundred or two thousand of all arms. f ? Gen. Wallace, having been reinforced du ring Thursday night, commenced an advance on the enemy yesterday morning, when it was ascertained that they were recreating towards Middletown. He immediately started his cav alry and mounted infantry, with Alexander's battery, in pnrsnlt of them, driving them nearly to Sonth Mountain. About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon the rebels again advanced on Frederick, said to be considerably reinforced. At last accounts a fieht was in progress about three miles wen of Frederick. Bighly important mevemenu of troops are in progress, the facts in regard to which ?re for ihf present withheld Colonel I,awreno?* and Colonel Wolley wpr? av tvely enesg^d jestorriay *td last mgbt id supennterdina: th? tiacsportatioa ol troop*, .?? apples, Ac., to various point?, and were in con t.ant commu nication with Mfcjor General Wallace.

A df?f ateh received Vrcm (Jen. Conch, t-> the military authorities in this city, last nVcht, stated that Imboden h^d again lett Hagerstown, and was proceeding towards Frederick, D. Couch bad a force near Hagerstown at last a ? counts. T!^e la'ert IrfortPRtlon la?t nieht, was to tv? cfect that the rebels were retreating bipre Gtn. Wallace's force?.? Bau-norgfiun, 9th Important Movement ol Troops. ? rrrom the Cleveland Herald.1 We mentioned a tvw days ago that there wre ^indications of tin immediate movement on Mobile. The troops in the unfortunate ex pedition under Gen. Banks have sailed from New Orleans for some destination?wb?re, is the question. Sixteen thousand men had lm3 New Orleans prior to the lWtta nit., andSOOQm-ire up to the date of tb? latest adyice*. ((no opin ion is that tbey have pore to reinforce Ocner vl Grant?arother that tbey have moved to at tack Mobile. The sudden landing of twenty five thousand veterans under General Oaabv at Mobile would make a stir among the rebels under Johnston: should the IxJuisiana vete rans be added to tbe army of the Potomac, Grant will tbe sooner be able to press T^e t:> extremity. The New Orleans expedition must soon be heard from. RsrBMBKTATIVB SCD^TITCTB!*. ?

Affairs in Gbokobtown.?There is noth ing do'n? in the canal, although the panic created by the rebel raid has subr'ded. The water continues to be very low, which would hinder the passage of laden boats, eveu if no other hinderance of trade existed, but it is sup posed that in the vicinity of Hancock the rebels did damage the canal, in the dams and culverts there. We can see no reason for this supposition, as no positive report of damaje to the caral at anyplace west of Georgetown has been received. Thb Columbian Collec.r Scholarship.
