Three Hundred Wagons with Plunder Captured. Harrisburo, July 20.?Important desnatch es were received at headquarters here last night, lrom which it is indicated that our forces are sitaeily and successlully pursuing the rebels who recently ravaged the western por tions of Maryland, and have wrested from them large amounts of plunder. General Crook, while in thepnrsutt on Mon day last, overtook the enemy at Snicker's Gap, where a sharp, and, for a time, terrific encoun ter took place. The rebels fought like devils, anxious to re tain the grain and cattle they had Bncceededin carrying thus far from Maryland. General C:ock, however, was just asmuch determined that they should not escape. "We whipped the rebels thoroughly, captnring over three hun dred wagons heavily laden with grain, and took many prisoners. As usual, th? cn^my left his dead and wottndett on tin* field, to be buried and eared for by our troops. ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. Wapiiingtow, July 20? Information re ceived from Headquarters Army of the Poto mac, dated July ICth, says: The usual quiet tti 11 prevails along the lines, and were it not for the sound of an occasional gun and some picket firing at a few point", one would sup pose that no enemy was within miles of us. Gen. Bnmslde's men made the most of the rose, the enemy taking every opportunity to fire at the colored troops that occupy a posi tion in his front, and of course, the fire is re turned with interest, but wlthoat much dam age on either side. No deserters come in at ttiis part of the lines, as they say they have no chance to gtt through without running the Tisk of being shot, the negroes beiug so con stantly on the alert. But they are coming in at other points dally in squads. A sergeant and his squad came in this morning, and all of them report that thousands are ready to leave as fast as opportunity presents. They come principally from Georgia, Flori da and Alabama regiments, and an officer of a regiment from the former State is said to nave gone to his superior offleer a day or two ago and reported that if bis com jr any was not soon relieved he would have none tj relieve; as they would all be gone to the enemy. These deser ters 6tate that they are very short of provi sions, particularly vegetables, and they seem glad enough when they get into our lines. Strict orders have been given, they say, that they shall not hold intercourse with our men on the picket line or exchange papers, and one fellow the other day, who came boldly over and brought a paper with him, taking one back, was caught and made to 6tand on the top of their works in full view of our lines, and wave the paper back and forth for an hour, as a punishment. An attack from the enemy has been expected for tbe past two days, and last night, from what a deserter bad said, it was looked for as certain, but no demonstration was made. We have had appearances of rain all this after noon, but so far none has fallen, and the dast continues to envelop everything. FROM NORTHERN MISSOURI. Aggravated Guerrilla Outrages?A Panic among the People. St. Louis, July 20.?General Fiske, com manding at St. Joseph, has issued an appeal, calling for five thousand loyal m?n to rally for the protection of life and property, and assist him in exterminating the guerrillas in North west Missouri. Further Particulars of Guerrilla Outrages. St. Louib, July 20.?Private letters from Lexington say about nine hundred bush whackers are in Kay county. Some of the Federal troops had a fight witb them on Sun day, near Richmond, in which eight of our men are reported killed. About three hundred Trrara ?t. "F.iij Horn on Monday. Thirty bushwhackers kiuea nine ciii?>u u( Carroll county, robbed the mail coach and passengers, and did considerable promiscuous thieving last week. All the persons murdered had been in military service, and were promi nent Union men. The St. Joseph Herald of yesterday says that the city is full of refugees from the lower counties, and hundreds have gone to Leaven worth and other places. The panic extends through the whole country. All business houses in Weston are closed, and the citizens are in constant fear of a raid. About fourteen buildings were burned in Platte City by the Federal troops, Including the Platte Sentinel office and other houses ba long to Union men. Colonel Ford tried to save ihe Sentinel office, but the fire made too great progress, and thus defeated bis good intentions. A letter without date, signed by Thornton H. Todd, commanding, was found at Platte City station, acknowledging the receipts of the names of frlendF, and saying that they could cross the Missouri river below Parkersville, ford Kansas Tiver west of Wyandotte, and ac complish their trip through Kansas. This letter shows tbey intended, alter a few days plundering, to join the rebel army South, effecting their escape through Kansas. Thornton has been In Platte and Clay coun ties eight months, and recruited twelve hun dred men, and during this time had been aided, pro'ected, and concealed, and subsisted by citizens of those counties. FROM FORTRESS MONROE. A Steamer with Gen'l Butler on Board. Attacked. Foktbsps Mokrok, July 19.?The steamer Parthenla and New Jersey arrived here to-day from Newbern, North Carolina, with the 17th Massachusetts regiment, homeward bound. They bring no news. Major General Smith arrived in the steamer Adelaide this morning, from Baltimore, and left for tbe front ia a special boat. Conflicting rumors have been in circulation during the day of an attack on tbe army gun boat Charles Chamberlain, with Gen'l Butler on board, by a masked battery of guns, near Wilcox's Landing. Nothing definite is known. Harvard College Commencement. Boston, July 20.?At Harvard College com mencement to-day the degree of Doctor of Laws was conferred on Reuben Atwater Chapman, of Massachusetts; Wm. Pitt Fessenden, of Maine; Charles Francis Adams, of Massachu setts; Edw. Laboulaye, of France; and the fol lowing-named persons received the degree of Master of Arts : Wm. Phillips Tilden, of Bos ton; Frederick Low Olmstead, of California; James Alfred Page, of Boston; Hall Train Bigelow, of Cambridge; Wm. Morris Hunt, of Boston; and George Nathaniel Eaton, of Balti more. Among tbe graduates who received the de gree of Bachelor of Arts was Robert Todd Lincoln. Edward Everett was selected to deliver the course of lectures on international law during the ensning academic year at the law school. Mr. Everett made a very earnest and eloquent address in honor of the late Josiah Q,uincy, resolutions regarding whom were unanimous ly adopted. Hbbxah, tbs Pugilist.?John C. Heenan, the Americ,n pugilist, was, as lately an nounced, seriously injured by jumping from a railroad car at tbe moment of the recent col lision on the Southwestern Railway near Eg ham, England. His spine being injured, a par tial paralysis of the lower limbs ensued. The physicians think, however, that by attention to regimen and the observance of rest, he may so far recover as to enjoy a tolerably comfortable existence, but that all idea of hi9 resuming the career of an athlete must be abandoned. The medical examination revealed the fact that Heenan's frame was generally a prey to disease. This circumstance induced him to settle his claim for damages with the railroad company, and that body has awarded him ?300. Heenau proposes to take a "benefit" tour in England, and then return to America. *7* The Toronto (Canada) Leader of the tilth of Jnly expresses its tears that tbe recent order of tbe British Government directing the con centratlon of the English regular troops in the cities of Montreal and Quebeo will be taken as an acknowledgement of the inability of the mother country or its unwillingness to defend the colony in the event of an American inva sion of its soil. The Leader, indeed, leaves it to be inferred that the regulars are to be locked ap in the cities in order to save them from de feat or capture, while the writer confesses very freely that the local militia cannot guard or cover the frontier. The Canadians are, in fact, "scared" at the idea of a war with the ..Yankees," JR?#M SHERMan i AK>fV. Details sf the Great Hank >!????,., Tfc.

They ar. ttve miles an* a quarter in length, and are completely protected by an abattis, which is imp- ? etrable Ther? . aa be no doti bt of the fact that the rebels havs been months preparing tbem. and that It is the ir intention to defend them to the last?at least that it was the intention of the people ot Georgia that they should be so defended, though Joe J< hes ten may not have been so determined to fight. Gov Brown lent not only the influence of the state in constructing, bnt hiaown personal services in superintending, the works: every negro demanded?and thev were thousands to dig ditches and throw up entrenchments were forthcoming; and Joe Johnston was urgerl to stake all upon the result of a batu* there. 1 hat he would gladly hare done *0, his own. forces making a direct assault, we have no doubt, because one man within the breast works is equal to twenty assailants over the ground from the river to the rifle-pit*; but a w ow wits just the thing not. intended by Sherman, and accordingly a flank move ment was made. McPherson, after some maneuvering, suc ceeded In effecting a landing on the south hank: of the river, in the vicinity of Binning's Sta tion, on Friday evening, about sundown. Tha rebels had evidently expected that our right would advance to turn their left, and had iw cordingly made the necessary preparations to meet Hooker, wten, to their astonishment, they fonnd McPherson'? cannon playing upon their works with fearful effect, causing a panic la their extreme flank by its suddenness and se verity. Bui the rebels were not easily frightened from their formidable works; on the other band, they resolved to remain in them if possi ble; but how they expected to hold them; now that a pioneer brigade was south of the river, I cannot conjecture. Nevertheless, they con tinued to hold them throughout Saturday, though our troops were massing in large nam' rers, constantly, and were in complete posses sion of a range of hills, from which thev could not he driven. On Sunday morning, discovering that our army was nearly all over, Joe Johnston gavs orders for another retreat. The heavy runs had been removed during the night, and at daylight the lailroad bridge, the common road bridge, and the pontoons were In flames. Our forces were not in a position to do anything to avert the destruction of these structures, nor could they ct mmence the pursuit of the flying foe till they had completed their own communications. The pioneer brigade, however, was indus triously at work, and soon half a dozen pon toons spanned the stream, and our army was across by Monday noon, occupying the works abandoned by the rebels. Whether or not a further advance has begun I am unable to say; but certain it is it will not be long delayed. The chief obstacles have now been overcome: the mountain region is passed, the Chattahoochee Is behind ua, and only & level plain now extends its broad surface be tween Sherman and the objective point of at tack, Atlanta. Sherman has now no natural obstacles to OTftioomc. There arc fortifications, we pre sume, completely protected by the usual abat tis; but they are on a level plain and are vul nerable to the heavy artillery with which he Is abundantly supplied. The distance to the town is less than seven miles, and to the forti fications fonr or five. The investment, then, cannot long be delayed. We captured 8,500 prisoners between Mari etta and the Chattahoochee, and over 1,00(1 south of that stream. About 2,000 of these have already arrived here, and others are com ing on every train. They are all sent north immediately. A day or twosince, 400 from the , vicinity of Nashville?the young bloods who [ entered the rebel army in 1861? were here, ragged, dirty and forlorn. Many of them begged to take the oath of amnesty, but were not al lowed to do so. There were a number of de serters released here, on accepting the amnes ty, day before yesterday. Later. Nashville, July 1ft.?The latest official information from General Sherman Is that his army crossed tne Chattahoochee an several places north of the railroad bridge. The movement was accompanied with such celerity as to take the enemy by surprise, and therefore the resistance to his advance was feeble on the part of the rebel cavalry. Our cavalry was at once sent to operate on the railroad east of Atlanta, one of the objects being to cut oir communication between At lanta and Augusta, thus preventing the remo val of stores to the latter place, and al?o to prevent Johnston from being reinforced Our main army was within ten or twelve miles from Atlanta, and all the operations of the army were progressing in the highest degree favorably. * Cheap Bread. ?'Bread and butter" are the only articles of food of which we never tire for a day, from early childhood to extreme old age. A ponnd of fine flour or Indian (corn) meal contains three times as much meat as one ponnd of butcher's roast beef; and if the whole product of the grain, bran and all, were made into bread, fifteen per cent more of nutriment would be added. Unfortunately the bran, the coarsest part, is thrown away; the very part which gives soundness to the teeth and strength to the bones and vigor to the brain. Five hun dred pounds of fine flour give to the body thir ty pounds of the bony element; while the same quantity of bran gives one hundred and twen ty.five pounds. This bone is "lime," the phosphate lime, the indispensable element of health to the whole human body, from the want of the natural supplies of which multi tudes of persons go into a general ??decline.'* But swallowing ??phosphates" in the shape of Eowders, or in syrups, to cure these ??declines,'* as little or no virtue. The articles contained in these ?'phosphates" must pass through na ture's laboratory, must be subject to her ma nipulations, in alembics specially prepared by Almighty power and skill, in order to Impart their peculiar virtues to the human frame; In Slainer phrase, the shortest, safest, and most ifallible method of giving strength to body, bone and brain, thereby asrestlng disease and building up the constitutfon, is to eat and di gest more bread made out of the whole grain, whether of wheat, corn, rye or oats. Bnt we must get an appetite for eating more, and a power ol digesting more. Not by the ar tificial and lazy method of drinking bitters aad taking tonics, but by moderate, continued, and remunerative muscular exercise in the open air every day, rain or shine. And that we may eat the more of it, the bread must ba good and cheap, and healthfnl and that which combines these three qualities to a greater extent than any other known on the face of the globe, as far as we know, is made thus:?To two quarts of corn (Indian) meal, add one pint of hread sponge, water sufllciently to wet the whole add one-half pint of floor and a teaepoonful of1 salt. Let it rise, then knead well, unsparing ly, for the second time. Place the dough in the oven, and let it bake an hour and a half. Keep 011 trying until you succeed in making & light, well.baked loaf. Our cook succeeded admirably by our directions at the venr llrst trial. It costs just half as much as bread front the finest family flour, is lighter on the stom ach, and imparts more health, vigor and stiength to the body, brain and bone. Three pounds of such bread (at five cents a pound for the meal) affords as much nutriment as nine pounds of good roast beef (cost, at 25 cts , S2.25,) accordieg to standard physiological ta bles.?gaH's Journal of Health. * ?ST The effects of the cotton famine are still felt in England, though much less severely than formerly. There are still 74,500 destitute persons In excess of the usual pauperism in the manufacturing districts. 10-Lady Gertrude Douglas, daughter of the Marchioness of Queensbery, has taken the white veil, at the convent ol j^ammenmitb
