THE EVENING STAR W, D. W ALLA' ll, Editor and Proprietor. WASHINGTON CITY: WIDNEJDAY JULY 13, 1964. EXTRA. THE INVASION. Lntc siiid Important. THE REBELS HAVE DISAPPEARED FROM OUR FRONT! THEY I.EAVE THEIR HEAD AND WOUNDED LEIIIND THEM! Recon noise ances made last night and tbis morning make it plain that tae rebftl* have disappeared from in front of the fortifications of Washington. They left eleven officers and ninety men in the house of F. P. Blair, sr.. at Silver Springs, too severely wounded in the action of yester day evening to be carried off. Tht<y also left their dead ol that fight upon the field. Measures have been taken for their imme diate pnrsnit. fear that we are not sufficiently strong In ?ftralry to make pursuit of ranch avail, nn Ism oar infantry can overtake them through obstructions to their Tapid progres? placed in their way by other Union forces?those under Hunter, Howe and Coach. In addition to their work of plunder and de vastation, we fceaT that they have been forciug ?early every able-bodied man they have been able to pick np in Maryland into their ranks: carrying tb> m off with tnem. It was notkoown here (that we can ascertain) at 11 a. m. to-day. to what points or in whit precise direction the rebels have withdrawn. T&ey were moving from the front all nigut Oar belief is that they are in full retreat across the Potomac. THE CHARCiK ON THE REBELS LAST NIGHT THEY AKK DRIVEN A MILE I AND A HALF. The heaviest fighting yesterday in front of F^ort Stevens was between live and seven o'clock in the evening, when it was deter- i mited to dislodge the rebel sharpshooters who "were making themselves mischievously an- ; xoying from the Carberry place, and especial ly from the house of Mr. Lay, better known as the Carberry house, on RocK Creek, to the left 0/ Fort Stevens. < To dislodge the shorpshooters from this I house a shell sent from Fort Stevens by the skillful gunners of the Gth Maine artillery was lodged in the cupola of the Carberry house> liring the building and sending the rebels ske daddling from its shelter like so many rats. This movement was followed by a charge on the rebel position by a portion of the 1st di vision of the veteran 6th corps, executed in ferllliani style on the double quick, and by w hich the rebels were wholly dislodged from the skirmishing position tney had heretofore I held with such tenacity, and driven perhaps a mile and a half. We lost some three or four killed in this aflair, and captured several prisoners The xebels lost some five or six killed, and perhaps as many more wounded. The Carberrv house is supposed to have been entirely destroyed, as it was burning at a lata hoar last evening. In front of Fort JSlocnm (to the right of Stevens) the rebel skirmishers were not so active, but whenever j tb?y showed themselves in sufficient numbers, | the Fort treated them to a sheil dance. FortSlocnm fired during the day between thirty and forty shells, and whenever they fell among the rebels they were seen to run in all j directions. The main force of the rebels keep i prudently in the woods, and only show them- j selves in any numbers when they relieve their skirmishers. Late in the evening, when the heaviest fight ing was going on, dense clouds of dust coald te seen in the Tear of the rebels, indicating one of two thing*, either that the rebels were fall jnK bdth) VI ircciving rtrinfoi vcuit uk). In passing along the line of onr fortifications lrom Fort Bunker Hill to FortStevens, later in the evening, we found the impression to be amongst the military folk that the rebels were Tetreating towards Rockville and Edward's Ferry, as the columns of dust, about sunset, j seemed to be receding: in a northwest direction, i Our entire loss in the two days' skirmishing | ?will not amount to more than fifty, in killed, ( wounded and missing. That of the enemy is i of course unknown, but is doubtless heavier than ours, from the fact that many of the shells thrown from the forts burst in their midst. Yesterday the 8th Illinois cavalry had three men wounded. For several hours yesterday a rsbel officer mounted on a horse could be seen riding in and ont of the woods fronting Fort Stevens. l>uring all this time he was a perfect target for oar men, but all attempts to dismount him proved fruitless. A member of the 70th New York regiment ; took up a position ir. a tree from whence he i picked off six of the rebel sharpshooters. President Lincoln and Mrs. Lincoln passed along the line of the city defences in a carriage last night, and wer? warmly greeted by the sol diers wherever they made their appearance amongst them. The nipht was beautiful?a peaceful moon- j light?and a large proportion of the population j of the citv was out to a late hour, waiting in ' anticipation that the rebels might make some , demonstration in pursuance of their old tactics ol night attacks. Considerable attention was attracted by the signaling going on between the different sta tions at Soldiers' Fiome, isth street and else where, and especial y tl e brilliant lights dis- | plaved fiom the tower a: the Soldiers' Home j Were seen for a long distance. | AFFAIR? ON THE RAILROAD?THE REBELS .-Til L NEAR BLADKNSBritt;?THE DAMA'iE TO THE RATLROAD SLIGHT. This morning Mr. Koontz, the agent of the Baltimore railroad here, proceeded to Bladens borg on a reconnoisauce, and ascertained that at 5 o'clock yesterday Laurel Bridge was safe It was also ascertained that but little damage had fr-en done to the road between Bells villa and Bladensburg, only two or three small bridges having been burned, v. hich can easily be rebuilt in six honrs. The rebels are still a short distance above the station at Bladensburg, and have one piec? of artillery, with which this morning they thrfw a shell which fell near the camp in the vicinity of the Spa Spring. Five prisoners were t;vken by onr men last night and wer?- brought into the fort this morn ing. They state that they belong to Bradley JoEnson's command. There are several men missing from the 5th Michigan cavaly who cut their way from Beltsvllle yesterday when about to be sur rounded by the rebel torce near Bladensburg. Thts rebel force will, however, not be suffered to remain long we imagine. Among th? forces posted in the vicinity of Fort Lincoln are sev- \ ?ral hundred of the sturdy mechanics from the Navv Yard, who left yesterday afternoon for that locality. Oar Navy Yard men are mostly \er?ed in the use of arras, and will no doabt <io themselves credit if brought under fire. THE FIGHTING NEAR FORT STEVENS. j The skirmishing in frontof FortStevens was suspended yesterday afternoon bv the heavy vain about two o'clock. Yesterday, a cavalry lieutenant, when passing under the guns of the fort, outside, was shot by a rebel sharp, shooter, and died in a few minutes. Dr. Da ibajnel was present at the fort, and rendered all the professional aid he could when re quired. The 2d D. C. Volunteers were prominent in 1 he line of skirmishers, and were highly spoken of by witnesses ot their conduct. The soldiers not engaged in the skirmishing did not appear to be at all concerned about what was going on. Some were joking and laughing In gTonps, others were picking black berries, taking the chances of a compliment Inm the tube of a rebel sharpshooter. The road to the fort was literally blockaded by pedestrians, horses and vehicles, about lour o'clock p. m., guards having been posted on the bill near the first tollgate to prevent civil ians from going nearer to the scene of conflict. The rumor that the -id D. C regiment hod b*en engaged, and that there were soma casu alties, having reached the city, there was con siderable anxiety manifested to hear from rela tives and frie&d* in tu&t regiment, which caused much of the rush in tbat direction.

They were dri ving before then; about 2,000 head of cattle which they had gtolen. TIIE SITUATION TN FRONT. There can be no doubt that the force of rebels that came into Maryland was about 30,0.0 strong. The best information from all quar ters ind directions bearing upon that point leads to that conclusion. As their operations extended from Gun powder river, around to Bladpnsburr. we tioubt whether their force hat been concen trated anywhere since last Saturday, when they fought the battle near Jklon^cacy junction. Their movements yesterday and thediy be fore, in the vicinity of Baltimore and this city, lead to the cot elueion that they have for forty eiftht hours past been concentrating all their scattered parties with a view either to retiring into Virginia precipitately or to attack the forces under Generals Howe and Hunter: the defences of both Washington and Baltimore proving too strong to be attempted bv the num ber of men they might be able to brtng to beat npon them. Though it is clear the Government was un prepared for such a demonstration as they,' the rebels,have made, it is most creditable to :he ef ficiency of its organization that they were able to prevent even the semblance of an assault upon the works defending Washington or Bal timore, and to assemble forces at both points sufficient to warrant prompt pursuit of this large rebel force the moment it could be ascer taiLed where to strike for them. A lack of cavalry, we apprehend, sadly in terlerei with the prompt procurement of de tailed Information of their movements and purposes.

Johnson to watch the movements of the Federal iroops, and that th"ir forces left the vicinity ot Fort Stevens last night, and moved in the diremion of the Chain Bridge. Johnson's force, Wool fork says, is the same that was operating near Baltimore, and that they came from there yes terday morning, and struck tne railroad at Laurel Station, where they burnt a train of cars, [an old construction train.?Ed.
