TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. THE INVASION. Particulars of the Burning of the tiun< powder Bridge. [Despatch to the Chronicle.J Baltimore. July 11.?The destruction of Gunpowder bridge is confirmed. When the Monday 7.30 traiu from Washington, which lelt this city at 9.10, reached Magnolia, nine teen miles from this city, they met a large rebel force of cavalry. Alter turning the passengers out of the cars and paroling the officers aud men of the army, the train was run on the bridge, and it was set fire to. The train consisted of four ratan cars, one ordinary passenger, one Philadelphia baggage, and one camden and Amboy baggage -ar, be sides tne mail car, engine and tender. A guard cf twenty men at the bridge were gobbled up. The passengers, it is supposed, will endeavor to reach Bavre de-Grace. We cannot say at present what other damage has been done. Grant Can Take Care ?( Richmond. Baltimore, July 11.?General Wallace all safe. I also learn that General Grant ha? tele, graphed that if our forces here aronnd Wash ington can repel the rebels and take care of Washington and Baltimore, he can attend to Richmond satisfactorily. ,Our military author ities feel more confident to-day, but the excite, ment is very great. Gilniore said yesterday he wonld be in Baltimore to-night. Let him make the attempt. He will find an inglorious grave. Capture of General Franklin?A Train Recaptured from the Rebels?The Sus pension of Business in Baltimore?Wires to Philadelphia Again Working. Baltimore, July 11.?The City Councils held a special session this afternoon, and passed a resolution requesting Gen. Wallace to order an entire suspension of business iu the city to morrow, and also to order all able-bodied citi zens, regardless of politics, to arms in the dif ferent wards of the city. It is believed Gen. Wallace will carry out the Council s request. The excitement continues to increase. Troops are seen everywhere. Civilians and refugees are coming from all quarters with valuables. We have no late information of the nearer ap proach of the rebels, but some expect a demon stration on the city to*nignt. Rebel squads have gobbled 6ome cattle and soldiers guarding them, to-day, some miles out of town. It is reported that, the rebels who burned the bridges on the Philadelphia road have been captured, but the report is doubtful. Many suspicions persons and some straggling rebels are being arrested hourly. Baltimore, July 11.?1 have seen one of the telegraph repair men who was at Gunpowder bridge to-day, on the railroad train, wnen the rebels, about 1,600 cavalry, came down the peninsula between two ri versand burned Gun powder bridge. Thev approached the train with yells, firiug in every direction, and final ly stopped it. Two or three passengers were killed, and others wounded. Terrible conster nation ensued. My informant was captured, but escaped. The whole train was fired, run on the bridge, and burned. The engine and a few cars were taken by them and run to Bush river, where the bridge across It was burned. It is believed the party then proceeded to Havre de Grace to capture the ferry boat and other vessels, and also do other damage. Confidence Is felt that all these marauders will finally be captured. The excitement con tinues here. The preparations, it is believed, are ample for all emergencies. The secessionists seem highly elated and pretend to be possessed of highly flattering news. They say 40,000men will be upon Wajn ington to-morrow, and it will be shelled. They chuckle, rejoicingly, in the beliei that It will be captured. I fear they know too much. I rever saw them mere confident. ] They talk freely of many of their rebel friends beiDg in Baltimore the last tw? days?say ? - .> -?? *??- ?r- ?- <*?? hand. 1 have found them tell similar truths heretofore on similar occasions, and it i^ best to be in readiness. W. j Baltimore, July 11,1 p. m.?The rebel cav nlry that destroyed the bridges, to-day, on Gun powder, Bush, and Back river on the Philadel phia road, were at Towsontown at ten to night, returning unmolested. Thev are going to join tne rebel forces in Montgomery county. Parties have gone out, to-night, to see after repairing the Philadelphia railroad. The City Council, to-day, appropriated one hundred thousand dollars to defray the expen ses of the city's defence. [Despatches to the Associated Press.] Baltimore, July 11.?The excitement in Bal timore has increased by the rebel oi>erations around the city. To-day the<innpowder bridge was destroyed by a burning train which the rebels ran upon it, its approaches being guard ed by a gnnboat lying in the river. The traiu which they used to accomplish their purpose tbey bad previously captured this 6ide of the bridge, being the regular 9.30 passenger train from Baltimore. Tne passengers were turned out and robbed, and their trunks plundered, about fifteen miles from the city. We have accounts oi the stealing cf horses acd the plunder of stores all through Balti more county. The turnpike bridge over the Gunpowder has also been destioyed. Fears are entertained that a number of the mills, fac tories, and foundries around the city will be destroyed to-night. As far as can be ascertained, the whole cav alry force in Baltimore county, which has done all this mischief, does not exceed ^00, un der command of the noted Harry Gilmor. The defences of the city are being strength ened and manned, and the citizens are arming and manning the entrenchments in large num bers. The banks and insurance companies have all deposited their valuables on board of a steamer chartered for the purpose, and ready to leave at a moment's notice. Arrangements have alEO been made to remote the archives of the State from An napolis. The city is full of rumors to-night of attacks on our pickets around the city, and it is re ported that Ellicott's Mills is in their posses sion-, but we cannot ascertain the trnth of the report. 11.30 F- M.?All is quiet in the city, though we have reports of our cavalry skirmishing with the raiders at Towsontown, seven miles out on the York roaa. General Ord iu Command. Baltimore, July ll.?G?neral Ord has been appointed to the command of the 8th army corps, and General Wallace commands the de partment By this arrangement General Ord has com mand of all the troops for the defense of the city.
