Wallace's Sue cess. [Dispatch to the Chronicle ] Baltimore, July t*?p- m.?The most reli able information hereto-night is that the reb els have been gradually driven back from Frederick by General Wallace, whose action since his promptness in taking command in the Add has won for him great praise and un bounded confidence. The enemy was repulsed by him three times yesterday, and as many times to-day. He is still pursning, and the rebels retreating. At last accounts the rebels were near South Mountain, and believed to be making for ??Dixie." Our force, under Gen. Lew. Wallace is ample. The trains rnn to Harper's Ferry. The Northern Central trains all arrive at the depot regularly,but consternation in Cum berland Valley continues. The number of raiding rebels is estimated at 10,(XX). Some rumors say they aggregate 40,<KHt. Notwithstanding, all accounts at headquarters here are encouraging. [Despatches to the Associated Pre>s.j The Situation at Frederick. Frederick, July S - P- 1U-?There has been no fighting to-day to this time, with the excep tion of picket firing by our skirmishers, who are feeling the position of the enemy. During the night they fe'l back from the line they occupied during the fight, and are now reported to be in position in Middletown \ al ley, holding the road to Middletown and Ha gerstown, crossing the Catoctin Mountain. Two guns are mounted in the (lap, and tbe force is now estimated to be about 5,00'*. Gen"l Wallace has received reinforcements, from where and to what amount he will leave the enemy to find out for themselves: but tbey arc men who have been tried, and who know the work before them and do not shrink from its performance. Frederick to-day is not like Frederick or yes terday. Since the arrival of General Wallace and his (enforcements the appearance of the city has entirely changed. Business has been resumed, and the people seem confident that the danger is passed. Our casualties may be summed up as fol lows : Alexander's Battery.?Sergeant Charles C. Grau, wounded, 1st Potomac home brigade; J. Cunningham, wounded, 3d Potomac home bri gade; Major H. C. Rixer, C. H. Mason, J. W. Bail, J. Moblev, John O Brien, G. W. Sprin ger, J. Baker, J. W. Rice, J. A. Binney, J. Kichards, J. T. Halstead, S. Yates, J. W. Crn milson, and A. Flte, all wounded, 8th Illinois cavalry. Lieut. Gilbert, who was first reported dead, is very seriously wounded by a shot through the breast. C. Greenville, J. H. Remington, W. M. Amhay, and S. A. Carver, wounded. Very few are seriously wounded. Latest from Harrisbnrg. Harribbukg, July *.?A dispatch dated Greencaule, 3.10 p.m., states tbat nothing is known of any rebel movements Uwards Cher ry Run. , ? The rebels who were in Hagerstown this morning left on the Sbarpsburg road, after having burned the railroad engine-house, wood-house, and other property, besides strip ping all tbe boot and shoe, hat, and grocery stores. , , They spared a commission warehouse upon the citlrens raying them 81,5(H). The Citizens of Hagerstown state that Imbo den's brigade, about 1,500, had started for Mercersburg and Chambersburg yesterday, and that a portion were at Clearspring getting horses. . . No further news from that quarter has been received. Latest. Harbipburg, July a?General Couch has issued an order directing that all vehicles and borses in charge of men fleeing from supposed danger, shall be stopped, either before they reach, or at the bridge across, the Susque hanna, nntil further orders, implying that the danger, it not actually over, is of no threaten ing or serious character. Hundreds of farmers left their ferops just ready to be harvested. A dispatch, dated two miles north of Hagers town, at 10 o'clock this morning, states that l-*0 guerrillas, from Imboden's add Mcseby's com mands, entered Hagerstown at 5 o'clock, rob bing the stores, and have fired the engine-house and Thurston'o warehouse, and burned 250 tons of Government hay. They intend burning Seeler & Co's warehouse, and also threaten to burn the town. The turn-table of the railroad is not yet de stroyed. The rebels are beavilv laden with plunder. The rebel General McCansland, with his brigade, was at Willlamsport this morning, but there are reports that he will leave there to-day. A high wind is blowing the fire up through the town, and threatens great destruction of property. Late dispatches from Greencastle assure us that the main body of the rebels which entered that place have retired?it is supposed, south of the Potomac?leaving only a few stragglers In the town. FROM THE FRONT. [Correspondence of the Chronicle.l Nbar Petersburg, Julys?10 p. m.?The enemy takes some trouble to convince us they are in no danger of immediate starvation. I have little faith in short ration stories, but think they must inevitably be distressed for provisions this time. Very little satisfies thetr wants, however, and I begin to think they can subsist on air. In front of our centre they brought out a small drove of cattle. This was early in tha morning. The bovines were trotted along the line in showy style, raising great tlouds of dust. We all knew the interpretation of this pompous triumphant display. ** You may cut | our railroads, but we have remaining at this time within our lines ample supplies for all." A stop was put to the bravado. Two guns were trained upon the rebel stock, which gal lopped otr, mingling their roars with those ot | the shells. .. ?? , Cannonading has been going on all day. Little harm is done, and all are so acenstomed to it we should miss it exceedingly if stopped. Our lines have undergone no change, and thste appears to be no signs of renewed actlvlty.of hostilities.

PrBLio School Examina-hoss ?The ex amination of the Public Schools were ^n. armed on Thursday, as follows The Female Grammar school Of the First District, taught by Miss Annie E Evans, Wu examined by Mr Wilson. This Is Ml?=s Evans* first year as teacher of this school, and when she took charge it was very low in numbers and greatly disorganized. In order to brine the school np to the usnal standard, heavy drafts were made upon schools of lower grade, and when Miss Evans had obtained .1 sufficient number of scholar?, she set to work to re organize the school, which she done very sat isi*<Morily. The first and second classes m ?rllhm?Uc passed a good examination, ? 7w * failures .some threeor four) were in the second class Mr. Z. Richards examined these classes, and he remarked that as to pro ficiency, the scholars were alirtle above the *Jn^^urUIvr'1^ lleu th>" class in botany was called. Mr. Wilson arose and said that soma two months ago the trustees deaired to intro duce this study in this school, when the lowest book of the series was introduced, since which Ume the scholars of this clas. had accom plished much. He (the speaker) believed ?c was an excellent study, and would interfere with no other. A year ago parent* thought it was foolishness to introduce vocal music into the pnblic schools, and perhaps some of them thought the same of botanj.but be was con vinced that they were mistaken. Mr. W. then Introduced Prof. Schafer, of the Maryland Agricultural College, who examined the eta** thoroughly, upon the conclusion of which he remarked that he was perfectly satisfied with the progrecs the scholars had made. Several excellent compositions were read, and one en titled "The Flowers," by Miss Talte, received special commendation. Iu reading the scholars showed good training. The dictation exercises were good, and in the other studies the scholars passed a very fair examination indeed. The order maintained was good. During Intervals of tlie examination the scholars sang several pieces with fine effect.
