July 11, 11 p. m.?Oar cavalry has been skirmishing with the enemy near Ream's Station, (ten miles south of Petersburg ) The first interchange ot shots was early this morning, and tney have not yet ceased. The enemy is using the Weidon Railroad. It is useless to conceal this fact. Thirteen trains passed to and from Petersburg m one morning. Hill's corps is reported to have been with drawn from our front this aUernoou. It is highly probable they are moving round our left, and meditate getting into the rear. We are ready for Hill. Only Pickett's division is iatfront ?f Butler. Long'street is before the 9th and fith Corps. The rebels imagine our forces have nearly all been withdrawn. They have been feeling all along our linos. anticipated raid on the fron tier.

(ANOTHER DISPATCH.] AtrovHTA, Me., July 15.?The American con sul at St. Johns, N. B., has notified Gov. Cony tbat a small gang of Southern emigrants and sympathizers left St. Johns on Wednesday night to commit depredations on the frontier of Maine. There is possibly some foundation for this story, but the raiders are more likely to get into jail than anywhere else if they demonstrate in this section. THE LATE REBEL RAID. Baltimore, July 15.?Some "knowing" Se cessionists here assert that the recent rebel in vasion was merely a reconnoissance, to ascer tain the position and strength of the fortifica tions at Washington and in Maryland. Dis covering what they were, they merely retired to the other side of the Potomac to await large reinforcements, with which, when obtained, they will invade us sgaia with an immense armv, with Lee in command. This may be mere braggadocio, but since what has been done partakes more of truth than fiction, it is well to be on the alert, and not again be taken unawares. Some straggling rebels are reported to hav? been seen in Baltimore county last night. It is believed that the plunder obtained and the damage done by the rebels in Western Maryland and other parts of the State, will amount to tour million* of dollars. FROM CALIFORNIA.

Mead, of South Hadley, Mass., in a sensibly written article, takes ex ception to the usual superfluity of "Sabbath Services,'' and makes the remarks, the lorce of which will be felt, especially at this season, by the clergymen of this city, of all denomina tions : ?>We nre therefore in full sympathy with those who deplore the growing laxity in the habits of modern church-goers. There is to us something sadly ominous in the thinness of the alternoou congi egrations in many churches. It signifies very plainly a gjeat letting down of the ancient conviction that every one should be at tbe house ot God during the hour of pub lic worship. Even professed christians are learning how to absent themselves from church worship without compunction. It used to be d-emed a species of Sobbath-breaking to stay , awnv from church without.excnse. "We confess that we should be glad to have the .-aine teeling beoome prevalent agaiu. But so sealed lias the custom now become of ne sleciing the afternoon service, that even min isters have almost ceased to prpach against it or derrerate it. As only a small congregation can be exoectcd in the aflmoon, the best ser mon?that which has been prepared with the most care and labor?is preached in the morn ing The afternoon sermon is au oid one, or one hastily prepared.
