THE EVENING STAR. W. D. WALLACH, Editor and Preprleter. WASHINGTON CITY: FRIDAY JULT 13, 1H?4. ?STBEADIJfO MATTER ON KVRRY PAGE FKK OITTSIDK FOR INTERESTING TELK OBAPIUC AND OTUCR MATTER FROM PETERSBURG. BrbrhThrratfnioj a Demonstration upon firant's Lines?(>rant Ready for Them, The mail steamer Keyport arrived here this morning from City Point. She brought up tbe army mail and a number of men of the l.?th Ohio, (one hundred days men,) who we sick ?with fever. There were some indications that the rebels are meditating an attack upon Grant, and they appear to be cautiously feel irgour line?. Considerable skirmishing has taken place within the past few dayB at differ ent points along the lines. The reb-ls seem fo imagine that Grant has b en so much weakened by sending troops to the relief of Washington that they can risk an attack. Owi-rmy is much in hopes that the rebels will come out to make an attack under tbat impression. Tbe rebels have taken advantageof the with drawal ol some of our gunboats from the James river, and yesterday morning they fired upon the steamers George Weems and United States from a field battery stationed near Wilson's Landing, The Weems had a portion of her stern knocked off, and three shots passed thron?h tb? United States, not doing much damage, however. As ?iie Keyport came down the James River, she saw a large body of rebel cavalry on the banks a short distance below Wilcox's. The Keyport pot on all steam, and passed them with a full headway, but the rebels made no demon stration avamst the beat. Nothing has as yet, been heard from Sheri dan, who ba? gone on another raid with a large fvira of cavalry. He will, doubtless, be heard from favorably within a day or two. Rebel deserters continue to come withiu our linfs in considerable numbers. The Keyport breugbt up twenty-one, under guard of a de tachment of tbe 'joth New York, commanded to 7 Lieut. Mulk-r. This officer also had five of onr men under sentence of court martial, in cluding a captain. The Keyport also brought up three families of refugees, who resided in Prince George county, near Petersburg. Tliey brought with them tbe r bedding and clothing, but in other lespects they were perfectly destitute. THE BEBEL PLANS. Mr. Samuel Wilkinson, of the Nevr York Tntune. telegraphs to that paper that he was at first disposed to underrate the strength of the Confederate invading party, but he now believes it was strong. He says that on the 5th day of Jnly written evidence was laid belore General Halleck that a cavalry colonel in Hampton's division had written a letter, ; "which was intercepted, and which was dated I "Ten Miles Northwestof Richmond, Va, June i 22, 'in wbich he stated, in the confidence of , "writing to a friend: " Ewell's corps, with Hamp'on's cavalry, over tifty thousand of us In all, have received orders to march to Har per's Ferry, aud the rations for the men neces sary to go there have been issued. We are jnst starting. 41 We know that for the first time in the war, Grant having drained everything, Washing ton is left almost destitute of men, but poorly defended by a few militia, and it is thought that our force is ample to take the city. The roilitia will be no match for the veterans. We have with us such as the stonewall Brigade. "Although our orders read to Harper's Fer ry, my own belief is that we shall go more di rectly to Washington, and many of the officers are of the same opinion. I may be in Fairfax county aid see yon before tlus gets there." COWARDLY OFFICERS. Among the prisoners under sentence of court martial, brought up by the steamer Keyport Jrcm City Point this morning, wereCapt. H. A. DeLand and First Lieut. Moses A. Powell, both of tbe 1st Michigan Sharpshooters, who were tried by a court martial, held within the linf s of General Grant's army, for deserting their company and regiment in a cowardly manner in the face of the enemy at Spottsylva ma Court House, North Anna River, and Cold liarbor. Capt. De Land w as sentenced to be cashiered with the loss of all pay and allowances now due or to become due, and to have his shoul der straps and buttons cut off, and his sword broken m the presence of his regiment, and to be confined at the Dry Tortugas at hard labor until the expiration of his term of enlistment. Lieut. Powell received the same sentence, ?with tbe exception " to be confined at bard la bor at tbe Dry Tortugas.'' The former por tion of the sentence of each lias been duly ex ecuted as directed. WITHOUT FOUNDATION. The report that Mosebv was operating in the vicinity ol Alexandria, with a view of making a dash into that city, is without foundation. Capt. Beckwitb, of Col. Weiswell's staff, and Lieut. Wm. Sheen, of the Provost Marshal's office, returned to this city yesterday evening with a scouting party, after having scoured j the country for lifteen tnil?-s south of Alexan dria. The\ saw no rebels in arras and after diligt-nt inquiry from the re-i den's of that sec tion of country could learu ol" none having been in the vicinity lately. FOK E \'CII \NGE. Tbi6 morning Thomas Manuel, Joseph Hall, and Ctarles Wallace, cttizens of Fredericks burg, and who were captured in theearly days of Grant's advance and held as hostages for UTn?on prisoners, w-re taken down the river on the steamer Lizzie Baker, a special exchange in thur ca e having been effected. The pris oners were in charge of Captain Clark and a guard of the Veteran Reserve Corps. ORDERED TO IIFPORT FOR MOl'NTED SEIl > ICE. Lient. William Sheen has he'*n temporarily te'ieved from duty in Prcvost Marshal Ingra ft m'e i fflce and ordered to report to Col. C. C. Livingston. Assistant Provost Marshal at tifcorgetown, lor mounted service duty. ASSIGNMENT OF OFFICERS. Lieut. Col H.

ARRIVAL OF (iliM.KAL FRANKLIS l\ BALTIMORE. [From Hal to. American Thursday evening] Major General Franklin arrived in the city during the past night, as we anticipated, and s this morning at Barnnm's Hotel, res ing from his fatigne ahd exposure. The following is a brief acc ?nnt of his capture aud escioe: He was seated in the car. at the time of h>s capture, alongside of a wounded lieutenant colonel, when a rebel ofltcer came in the train acd addressing bimBelf to tbe wounded man, *ai?i,"Are yon Major General Franklin?" He T' plied that he was not, aud gave him his name and tank. (lea. Franklin was in citizens' dress, but the rebel also pntthe question to Jhim. and be tinallv answered that such was bis name and rank There was no doubt in his nun, from the manner oi his interrogator, that be Lad betn pointed out bv some of the passengers. The rebel said, "General, I am nappy to see you." The General replied, ??1 cinnot say that I am pleased to see yon, under the circumstances." About t*n minutes afterwards Giltnor came into the i ai, aud, addressing himself to Gen. Franklin, btid, "General, you will consider yoursi 11 my prisoner." He was then pnt in a eariiage, and, with other prisoners, driven tnrou>ih the couutry, stopping a while at Tow aontewn, aud then across to tha Beistertov. n road, where they arrived about 10 o'clock on Tuesday morning, and immediately bivou acked for the night. The General was put in custody of Cap'atn Owens and two guard?, who were charged W'tfc bis safe keeping Expressing himselt as k c'< and weary, he immediately laid down ai.d leigned sleep. Soon after the captain and bisguards laid down, and he listened anxiously jor indications of sleep on their part. He had not to wait lorg before he heard the guard near est to bim commence to breathe heavily, mo mentarily Increasing in volume and protund i<>, until it became sufficiently loud to wake an ordinary sleeper. The captain a* d hiso'her cu&rd had also in tbe meantime commenced to breathe rather heavy, and the General con tit>u?d, with his ears open, also to fetjn >leep. J> l?id in hi-wav for some time, unt'l all Itree gave unmistakable signs of sleep. F ar Ry ibst they were play in.' possum, he rot no Huti waikeo carelessly aronoi them, moved over to tbe fenc, and still watched then He then < i urht-d loudly and made considerable yvoise, thii kinr that th?-y wanted aa excuse to snoot at him. each man laving vith the right ba< el grasping the muzzle of their rifles. Th< li'dica ion* of profound sleep being so unmistakable on the pirt of ail thr e of thena, be ? ow thought that he would tes'. the smc*ri y oi the r ?>'nmbers bv jumping th-> f are. Tnis be aid, and. on leaking ba^-k, c >otd *ee no ; movement of the tSosfey forms or his gaardiaas, I and ofl he sbot across MTrnl Owl da, jBnpug fence*, and keeping straight afcead la the di rect ton be thought woo Id ta*e bin towards I the city. He ran for aoont three-quarters of : an hour, whea be entered a thick woods, aad in bis weakly state, being really broken down by fatigue, he sought a place of concealment. He remained concealed for the balance of the night, and all the ?ext day, frequency soring from his hiding-place the rebel ssouts searching for him, and scouring the boshes and woods. Finally, about sunset, 3lmost famished for water and food, he thought he would venture on', having come to the con clusion that freedom and starvation were near ly as bad as being a prisoner without these de privations. He still Kept to the woods, how ever, and he soon saw two men moving to wards him, carrying large bnndlea of hay. He walked op to them and asked them what they were doing with hay in the woods, when one of them repWed:?'? We have hid our horses in the woods to keep them out of the hands of the d?d rebels, and we are going to feed them." This reply was a sufficient indi cation of their sentiments, and he immediately made known to them the circumstances of his presence in tbe woods, and who he was. They greeted him kindly and cordially, dropped their hay, and conducted him by "a secluded route to their farm-house, where be was most kindly and hospitably received and enter tained, both by the old gentleman and the la dies of his faniily. Being in a neighborhood snrroanded by rebel sympathizers, and some of the rebel scouts still prowling around,apparently watching for him, his whereabouts was kept a profonnd secret by his loyal host, who, on Wednesday, set about devising means ol getting bim to the city. This lie accomplished, and, at midnight on Wednes day, a carriage went out from the city and re turned with Majqr General Franklin, feeling, as he expreseed himsel, more free than ever he had before felt in bis life. We do not give tbe name of this gallant Mary and farmer at present, for the reason that be fears rebel retribution, should any more of the banditti be still in the neighborhood. The General was preparing to leave this morning again for Philadelphia, to join his fataily at York, Pa., where be will spend a few weeks in recuperating his shattered health. It is but proper to state that Colonel Woolley went out on Wednesday night with tbe escort and brought the General to the city, he having been advised of bis whereabouts during the day. rv"5-?I. O.

They were subsequently beard of as passing Snickers<ville, and moved on down this side of tbe mountains and passed Ashby's (.Vap, although it was 6aid tbay in tended going through the latter. Another body of rebel cavalry (whose has not transpired) was beard of between Silem and Chester Gap on Wednesday at noon. Thair course indicated that they would leave Cat p?per on their left and push forward to some point in Madison county. Harry Gilmore and his gang of horse thieves and incendiaries were among the last to cross the Potomac, which they did A little above Ed wards' Ferry, and after crossing, a force of two or three hundred was detached from the main command and moved in the direction of Snick ersville, the main force moving ia a due south west direction, apparently in a direct coarse to Ashby's Gap. Breckinridge and staff were near Lee:>bnrg on Wednesday morning early and superin tended the movement post there. A REPORTED MOVEMENT OF TUK REBELS ON THE MANASSAS ROAD. To-day reports were brought into Alexan dria tha% last evening, cars were beard rnnning as if to Manassas, from the South, indicating that tbe rebels bave repaired (hat road to Ma. nassas. and were using it for some purpose. We suppose due inquiry will be made to as certain whether the report has any foundation. INTERESTING PARTICULARS OF THE REBEL INVASION. The Invading Force not less than Thirty five or Forty Thousand Strong?They have 40 Cannon on the Blair Place. Rebel sympathizers who, on Monday, were jubilant in this city with the idea that Wash ington was soon to be in Confederate posses sion, and showed their faith in it, some of them to the extent of going out to assist the rebels in its capture, now speak of the invasionists as a mere raiding party of some 5,000 men, (a "raid ing party of 5,OOOmen," indeed, with two maj jr generals and half a dozen brigadier generals !) All the reports received to-day, brought in by intelligent parties, resident at various points visited by tbe rebels, concnr in fixing the rebel force in front of Washington at not less than thirty thousand men, leaving out of account rebel detachments stationed at other points, for purposes of observation or sentout for raid lug purposes. From Mr. J. E. Turton, of this city, who enjoyed superior opportunities for observation, hiving been in the hands of the rebels at Silver Spring during their entire stay there, we get s> me clear ard interesting particulars. lie was tilling a contract in remodeling the Montgomery Blair bouse, which is?or was? perhaps an eighth of a mile from the bouse of Francis I*. Blair. About eleven o'clock on Monday morning he was surprised by the appearance of six rebels, who dropped down upon him as if from the skies. Tbey inquired whose house it was, and particularly if it was the house of Lincoln's Postmaster General, and on learning tnat it was, the leader of the gang exclaimed to the others, "This house must go up!" The house was locked up, (not being in present use by Mr. Blair,) and they proceeded to break open the doors and despoil it, scattering books (of which tbey seemed to bave an indifferent opin ion) and papers around In every direction, and carrying off whatever they deemed would be of use to them. They did the same at the house of Francis P. Blair, and found there what they deemed an especial 'prize, an excellent county map of the Stateof Maryland. This map was care in ny Borne away, aud for many hours after wards a corps of Rebel draughtsmen (occupy ing the house of Themas Gettings, at tbe third toll gate) were busily employed over it making sketches and cepies. The main body of the Rebel forces did not appear in front of Fort Stevens, but remained encamped en the Wil son farm abont a mile and a half beyond Blair's, on the 7th street road At this point (Wilson's farm) there were not less than 25,0(,0 or 3o,ooo men. Neither did the rebels bring forward their artillery, but parked it (forty pieces of field artillery) la the orchard and fields of the Blair farm. This artillery did not arrive until about 2 o'clock Monday after noon. The rebels had 576 prisoners, taken at the battle at the Monocacy, at the Wilson farm, under guard. Mr. Turton saw and conversed with the rebel Generals Early, Breckinridge, Ransom, Gordon and Ramseur. Gen. Gordon questioned him particularly as to the number of troopB in Washington and the condition of the deiences. Mr. Turton evaded the questions by saying he had not been in Washington for some days. Breckinridge has grown stoat and gray. He was dressed, like the other rebel generals, in coarse homespun gray, and had a long mus tache, but no whiskers. The olticers did not let anything fall in Mr. Turton's presence as to whether they intended an attack upon Wash ington, but the men talked quite freely of what they would do If they got possession of Wash ington. They would not leave one stoue upon another, tbey said. Tbe rebels began to leave the vicinity of Silver Spring about 9 o'clock Tufsday night, and at II o'clock they set tire to the house of Montgomery Blair, as their rear was moving away. They offered no personal harm to Mr. Turton, but "took his change of clothing, and on hlsremoHstrating, they said "We can't hslp it, you nre where you can get plenty, we can't" The rebel artillery brought up the rear as tbey moved off. THE DOINGS OF T11E REBELS. Ed. Tyler, a son of Major Tyler, formerly ot tbe U. S. Marlnas was with the rebels in front of Fort Stevens, and left a letter at the house of Mr. Fenwick, beyond Blair's, in which he sta ted tbat be understood that Marshal Lamon lived in his father's house, (F street, near 7th,) and be would like very much to have tbe pleasure of bnrning it down. Marshal Lamon had four valuable horses near Beltsville in pasture, which we bear through colored people, were carried off by the rebels. Mr. l?uvall living a shoit distance from Bla densbnrg, had two horses taken from him and several old "bags of bone*" left in their places. TI1K PURSUIT OF THE REBEL5-CAPTURE OF PRISONERS.
