July 20.?Thornton's guer rillas, nearly five hundred strong, were iu Car roll county to-day, and will probably make an effort to cross the Missouri river. Gen. Fiske is pressing them hard, but his force is insufficient to effect much. The loyalists are rallying to his standard, however, and north Missouri will soon be too hot for guerrillas. FROM BERMUDA. Extensive Blockade Running. New York, July 21.?Bermuda papers of the 13th contains no news. From the 4th to the V? instant, five steamers arrived there from Wilmington, with an aggregate of three tuous and bales of cotton and a large quantity of to bacco.

Philadelphia, July 21?Nixon's Mills, an extensive paper manufactory, at Manyunk, was destroyed by fire last night. They consisted of a series of mills, the main building, rag and straw departments being des troyed. The southern portion used for the man ufacture of pulp was partially saved. The loes is estimated at from g 100,000 to 9120,000. The insurance is not yet ascertained. The destruction of these mills is a serious loss as several newspapers and book publish ers in this city were relying upon them for supplies. PEACE MISSION OF A* ILLINOIS COLONEL TO RICHMOND ON HIS OWN HOOK. [Dispatch to the Philadelphia Inquirer.] Waphinotow, July 20.?This morning our city, although having so recently resumed its former quiet, which the invaders ruthlessly disturbed, was again thrown into a somewhat more genial excitement. As the James river boat arrived, it became known that among its passengers were two men who left Richmond only on Monday last. To have nn interview with these distin guished travelers was of course the deiire which immediately possessed the anxious. Hardly had they landed before rumor, ever busy, telfgraphed over the country that two United States commissioners had just returned from Richmond after the transaction of the most important and official business. But rumor in this case was grievously in error. The travelers neither transacted business in Richmond of an official or important character, ao fax as present results are concerned. The gentlemen who have thus succeeded in visiting Richmond are Colonel James F. Jaquess, of the 73d Illinois regiment, and Ed mund Kirke, of New York, the well-known author. Colonel Jaquess has been in the army almoot since the beginning of the war. He is a gentleman of about forty-five vears of age, is pleasing in bis address, although somewhat reserved in manners. The report that these gentlemen acted iu any official capacity for our Government, or that they were in any respect recogniz-d either here or in Richmond as agents, messengers, envoys or commissioners of the United States, is nntrue. They went upon a mission perfectly and wholly distinct from any connection with our authorities; and, again, the object of their mission was not present in its nature, but alto gether ulterior, and dependent upon contingen cies which may arise hereafter. Although it is not officially known here what is the precise object of this mission, still it is undentcod by those who claim to be specially informed that it looks to a restoration of peace. It is stated that Colonel Jaquess, with whom this idea originated, proposed, nearly a year ago, that he should be allowed to visit Rich mond, and present his views upon a reconcili ation to the Confederate authorities. Permis sion was granted bint and he proceeded upon bis mission as far as Petersburg, when he re turned wi bont material success, as be did not risit Richmond Last week, with the permission of the Pres ident, Col. Jaqur so le t his command in the We?t and again essayed his mission to rebel dcm. He received from Mr. Lincoln a letter of personal recommendation to Gen. Grant to pass him through tho lines and otherwise for waid bis views. In no other respect did Col. Jaqoess receive any support from the Presi dent, neither was there given to htm, by any of our authorities, any warrant whatever for official negotiations. It was simply a private mission of the Colonel, with which the Presi dent saw no reason to interfere. Accompanied by Edmund Kirke, the CeU onel proceeded to Gen. Grant*s headquarters, and having been permitted to pass our hues they started for Richmond by the northern bank of the James river. They found no dif ficulty in entering the Confederate lines, and, in fact, every courtesy was kindly extended to them as they journeyed toward the capital, ! which tney reached on Saturday last As soon as Colonel Jaquess arrived at Rich mond he requested that he might be plaoed under guard, which was done, although the satire freedom of the city was Immediately ex tended to him. He was assigned elegant apartments at ths Spottswood House, the beat hotel in Richmond. During his stay of three davs he flared In ths most sumptuous manner. His table groaned with the choicest of the market, and tho most 'savory viands were laid out la profusion be fore blm. All kinds,of meats and vegetables were served up up In the most recherche style, and brandy at sixty dollars a bottle, and wine ?t fifty was not wanting to complete the rich nni of the raterUiinmrnt. Gold spoons and forks, also, added their glitter to the board so festively spread. His bill for the tbreedavs was orer five hun dred dollar* in Confederate money, but be fonnd himself unable to give the slightest re ward for so distinguished a hospitality. Col. .Taqness has had two Interviews with Jefferson Davis in hie office in the C as torn House. He folly explained his Tiews to the President, and endeavored to pres* them npon his consideration. No official report however having bsen as yet given of these interviews, it is unknown what snccess attended them. We opine, how ever, that Mr. Davis cannot at present be ar Kued into the consideration of any terms of peace which do not have as their cardinal prin ciple the recognition of the Confederacy. Jefferson Davis, notwithstanding all pre vious reports to the contrary, looks hale and hearty. His health was never better than at present, and the indications are that he will live out the threescore years and ten. Col. Jaquess. during bis visit, had several interviews with Jndah P. Benjamin, Secreta ry of State; Mr. Oold, Commissioner of Ex change, and with other rebel dignitaries and authorities. From them all he received the kindest attention. As he took his leave of President Davis, last Monday, Mr Davis took Col. Jaquess' bands in toth his, pressed them warmly and "ordial ly,i and said that, leaving out of view the pres ent struggle, he had the highest respect for the Colonel's character and alms. On Monday nisrbt Colonel Jaquess and his companion returned to General Grant's head quarters, and continued their journey to this city. It is understood that Colonel Jaquess will soon publish an official account of this visit and the object connected with it, and whatever may be thought of tne Colonel's proposed means of reconciliation, there can be no doubt both of his honesty and unswerving loyalty. FnrAVCIAfc.?Tb? New Y<?rk Commercial Advertiser of yesterday says: The stock market opened dull. There wis no outside demand, and a pressure to realize produced a general decline on the call. Gov dDl1 ana low*r- Coupon sixes or t?l declined X, and one year certlfljates de clined with large amounts offering. Five twenty coupons were firm at 104, and for small denominations 105. Gold opened weak at 262, and subsequently declined to 260There is but little regular demand, and the speculative interest has not prices strength materially influence There is a strong disposition in Wall street to renew speculation on railroad and miscella neous stocks; but for once speculators are pru dent, and think the financial situation dictates patience. The price of gold has advanced nearly one hundred since the panic of April, and during the same time stockfi have declined onanaverage of about twenty-flve per cent., whilst the earnings of the roads have been largely increasing. This, it is thought, lays a basis for a vigorous movement for a rise when the money market favors. A* tbe time when the market broke down, the prices of stocks were generally above their dividend-paying value. But with the extreme subsequent advance in gold, with increased earnings on all the roads, and with an increase of 20 per cent, in the rates of freight, determ inedat the recent railroad con,-ention, there could Je to doubt that railroad securities are at present as much below their real value as at the beginning of April they were above it. It must be expected, however, that railroad stocks will Bnfter from the competition of Gov ernment securities. Personal investors will buy them only because they pay better inter est than any other kind of stocks. At present, Government bonds are paying a much higher rate of interest than railroad investments, and parties seeking permanent investment, as well as public institutions, will therefore give them the preference. The tendency of this discrimination is to put down the price of railroad stocks to a point at which the rate of interest on the market value of the stock approximates that paid by Gov ernment securities. A speculative movement S?8 l^i8 we,fcl>ty obstacle to contend agamst. Should an easy market favor a ? bull" effort, the attempt might be partially successful, for the history of speculations proves that prices are but little regulated by values. So long, however, as so much money is absorbed by produce at its present high prices, and the Gov ernment is borrowing largely, the condition of the money market is likely to keep Wall street quit-scent. The Evening Post says: We learn that Mr. Fessenden will offer in a day or two a limited amount of seven-thirty three year Treasury notes, interest payable in currency at maturity, fundable into a 6 per cent, gold bearing bond. These notes will be offered to the public at par. The stock market opened dull and closed neavy. Governments are lower, and the ab surd rumors of Mr. Fessenden's intention to offer seven-thirties and long bonds at low rates depresses quotations. Five-twentie? are of fered at 109 for rpjriwtcrcU auU lOl ;, lui CUUpuus. Small bonds are In request at iiSjtf, Coupon of lbbl are offered at 102, and Certificates HI */?? ? State stocks are steady, bank shares dull, coal stocks heavy, mining shares inactive, and railroad bonds strong. The Foreign News.?There are some addi tional details of foreign news by the Europa. Tne debates in Parliament on the resolution of censure were conducted with great animos ity- A turbulent sceneensued whena member of the Opposition called some statements of Mr. Layard's "calumnious." Lord Palmers ton contended that such an ex preesion was not permissible, while the Speaker decided that it was. Mr. Hennessey, amid great cheering, cited a case where Palmerston himself, a few pe*r" ?&?' ?-ad ased the term Against Mr. Lay ard. The Kearsarge and Niagara are cruising in the channel. The Rebel steamer Rappa BV"lSFk ia being closely watched at Calais. The Times charges the French Government With pot having only allowed, but encouraged the building of Confederate steamers at Nan tes and Bordeaux, and with having now sud denly vielded to the demands of toe Federals. A naval engagement took place off Rugen be tween a Danish frigate and five Prussian gun boats. According to the Dutch accounts the gunboats were unable to continue after three- 1 quarters of an hour, four of their ten gnus becoming disabled. The Richmond Examiner of the 10th says: "It was rumored in Department circles I yetterday, that Secretary Seddon, of the War Department, was about to assume the portfolio of the Treasury, made vacant by the retire- i ment of Mr. Memminger, and that Ex-Gover- 1 nor John Letcher was to assume the functions of Secretary of War." ?67"A dispatch, coming by the roundabout way of Harrisburg. states that the pursuit of the rebels who recently Invaded Maryland is being actively pressed, and with some success. General Crook is reported to have had a sharp fight with the retreating rebels at Snicker's Gap, recapturing over three hundred loaded wagons and taking many prisoners. & An evening cotemporary eays that by a mistake of the printer there was "nothing but the headings" in its columns yesterday to tell of a " Great Victory." We think we have noticed such mistakes before in that paper. Colonel Wolford has returned to Ken tucky on parole, with instructions to hold him self in readiness for trial by court-martial. Thirteen charges of disloyal language are pre ferred against him by order of the President. The Marlboro' Gazette and Prince Georgian have been compelled, on account of the greatly increased cost or printing piper, to raise the rates of advertising abont tw?otv ner cent.

GOOD NEWS FROM SHERMAN. The Enemy Repulsed in Tbree Attacks upon Him Yesterday. Dispatches have been received from General Sherman by the Government to-day, announ cing that the enemy assaulted his lines three times yesterday, and was repulsed each time with little loss to us. Our men fought mostly behind earthworks, hence the small loss on our side. THE FIGHT AT SNICKER'S GAP. Capture of a Large Number of the Rebel Raiders?The Rebels Compelled to Burn their Wagon Train. Last night eighty-one rebel prisoners arrived here from Sandy Hook, Md., having been sen1 here by order of Brig. General Howe, under guard of company I, 1st Maryland Potomac Home Brigade, commanded by Lieutenant Colb. These prisoners state that they were in charge ef one of the invading plunder trains, and were overhauled near Snicker's Gap by a portion of our pursuing forces, under General Crook. A brisk fight immediately ensued, which continued with much fury for some time; but the train guard finding it impossible to save the train, destroyed it by fire, and re treated, leaving the teamsters and others at the mercy of our forces. A dispatch from Harrisburg states that we captured over three hundred wagons heavily laden with grain, bnt by this statement it wonld appear that the rebels burned the train. The following Is a list of the prisoners, from which it will beseen there is one officer among them. We also captured some five or six ne gro teamsters, whose names are not given in this list: First Lt. W. S. Barnhard, 37th Va. cavalry: Samuel Blissard, John Brown, Wm. Berry, 62d Georgia: Benj.

NEWS OF DISASTER TO THE REBEL RAIDERS. They are Obliged to Burn Twenty.five Wagons at Hughes' Creek. We learn this morning from a former citizen of Madison county, Va., who has for some time been sojourning in Fairfax county, that he luu reliable information going to show that the rebel raiders met with so many mishaps In getting away with their plunder from Mary land, that what they have managed to keep will hardly repay them for their trouble. The raiders it appears from the time of their first capture of plunder were in the habit of sending it off guarded by detachments. Thus on Thursday, July 12, a party having charge ot 25 wagons, heavily laden went through Gregory's Gap and passed down the other side of the mountains, and along the Shenandoah river, leaving Front Royal on their right (and at this pcint hugging the mountains as closely as possible) until they arrived at Thornton's Gap, through which they passed, and thence they moved through Sperryville, and halted for some purpose or other at Hughes creek, a river between Rappahannock and Madison counties. This body was about 65 strong, and on Thuisday nightjthey were alarmed by what they supposed to be a force of Union cavalry. They were so badly scared that for some cause or other, (probably acting under orders) they fired they wagons, and all were destroyed. The force that so scared the rebels turned out to be five Union scouts, who were in that neighborhood. Our informant larther states that but little of the rebel plunder, and but a small portion of the force passed through Snicker's Gap, as the rebels appeared to think that point would be speedily occupied by the Union forces. They therefore got on the other side of the mountains through Asbby'8 Gap, and came this side again through Chester and Thornton's Gap, and thence pushed on as though going to Gordous vllle. TUB RETREATING INVADERS. A letter received In this city by an officer from Sandy Hook, Md., states that many strag glers from the retreating invading force corns into that place daily and surrender them selves. The men are completely worn out by rapid marching, and numbers of them are shoeless, with their clothing torn into shreds. THE (JUARTERMA8TERS' MILITARY ORGAN IZATIONS. In obedience to an order issued by Quarter master General Meigs, the proper offcers are actively engaged in perfecting arrangements far organizing the clerks and employees of the Quartermasters' Department into permanent military commands. It is understood that the officers will be regularly commissioned by the War Department, and furnished with suitable badges. Some of tbe companies that served during the invasion will re organize and elect new officers. M7"From John C. Pasker, 379 F street, we have advance copies of G ode if t Lady's Book fo? August, and 7*? Phrenological Journal (No. 2) for the same month. Reported Invasion or Kcktucky.? Another invasion ot Kentucky is on tbe car. pet. There is ne doubt that a rebel force has entered the Stats through Pound Gap, and at last accounts the rebels were in Floyd county. The invaders are variously estimatsd at 5,009 to 15,000, bnt we presume their strength does not exceed the inside number. Tbe object is t? aflect Sherman's operations, but in this it will fail as ths Maryland raid tailed to intsrfere wi'b Gen. Grant's plans. Gen. Burbvidge is gathering reinforcements and is vigorously preparing for tbe contest. There are intimations that Forrest is expected to form a junction with Buckner, who is be liever*'to he in command of the rebels coming into Kentucky from tbe eaau but it will be recollected that General A. J Smith is looking alter Forrest in West Tennessee, a?d we pre sume that be will have enough lo do to take csre of himself in tba' quarter; besides there are other movements in progress In that direc tion which wil keep all the rebels actively fmplcned. Upon the whole, we do not think Forrest will co-operate with Bnckner, and frrm the latter no trouble is to be apprehended except the recessity for the concentration or * force enfficten'ly large to whip him.?Qixtin mati Oasetir, July IS.

' LOG All NEWS. The Quota op the District under ttib New Cau.?Under the call of February 1, 1664, for 500,000 men, the qnota of the District of Columbia was fixed at 4,256. By credits under toiuier valla, Uj Tuluuteeriiig, sua xjj draft, this call was filled; but recruiting was continued energetically, and the result is that we have (as stated Tuesday) an excess of 450 over all former calls, to begin with under the late call for 500,000 more. We understand also that recruits are coming In to the average num. ber of filteen per day. By the subjoined communication, received by Mayor WalJach from Provost Marshal General Fry, it will be seen that our quota under the new call has been fixed at 2,910 ? ? ADK?*BTMElrr' Provost Marshal Gene, rals Office, Washington, D C., July 19, 1361.? Hon. Richard Wallach, Mayor of the city of Washington, Washington, D. C.?Sir : The quota of the District of Columbia under the call of the President for 500,000 men, of date July IPth, 1861, is 2,910. This quota will be reduced by any excess it may now have over all calls heretofore made, or increased by its deficiency on such calls, as the case may be. For details in regard to the subject please confer with the Provost Marshal of the Dis trict of Columbia. Very respectfully, yonr ob't servant, Jambs B. Fry, Provost Marshal General. The apparent discrepancy of numbers under the first call for 500,000 and under the present call is accounted lor by the fact that the quota is now made up in proportion to the number of bona fide citizens of the District (according to the census of I860) amenable to military duty, many clerks and others subject to enrollment elsewhere having heretofore been enrolled here. Through proper exertions made in be half of the city's Interests, this excess of quota has been abated. The 450 to ouf credit inclndes all substitutes np to the present time, and all persons enlist ing in the Navy. Deducting this number (450) we have yet to furnish 2,460, but a little ener getic aetion upon the part of all our citizens will exempt us from the draft. We are certain that Mayor Wallach and the City Councils will use every exertion to accomplish an end so desirable. Homicide in the First Ware.?Yesterday afternoon an affair occurred in the house of Thomas Morrisey, who keeps a small shop near the corner of 16th and K streets, which resulted in the shooting of Morrisey, causing his death in a few moments. This morning Coroner Woodward summoned the following jury of inquest:?John McL. Bnill, Wm. T. Riley, John A. Borland, Wm. Hurdle, Jonathan D. Townley, John Hines, Jacob Lauberheimer, Wm. Bagnan, John Ty nan, James Croggon, Wm. Anderson, John Beck, and the following facts were elicited from the evidence: A cavalryman, Patrick Galvin, 6th N. Y. Cavalry, was in the honse tff the deceased in the morning, and had some difficulty with him, when he went away but returned about four o ciuc* and called for segars, when Mrs. Mor rlssey replied that she had none. He then called for the proprietor and Morrissey made his ap pearance, when Galvin took him by the shoul der as if to get him out and at the same time drew a pistol. Morrissey ran back into his sit ting room and cameout armed, when both fired almost simultaneously, the ball from the pis tol of Galvin taking effect in Morrissey's left side, below the ribs, passing through him caus ing his death in less than an hour. Galvin immediately started off bnt was arrested bv the military authorities, and this morning he was sent under guard to the place of inquest where he was lnlly identified by several wit nesses. He did not deny that he fired the fatal shot, and alleges that Morrissey shot first. The jury found a verdict in accordance with the facts. Morrissey was about 2S years of age, and is represented to have been a very quiet and peaceable man. He leaves a wife and three children in indigent circumstances. He for m erly belonged to the regular cavalry. The prisoner, Galvin, was this forenoon given in custody of officer Bnill, of the First Ward, to be tried by the civil authorities, and he will be committed for that purpose. Affairs in Gkokobtown.? The Canal.? There is nothing of importance doing upon the canal. There are no arrivals and bnt few departures, and those few are of boats intend ed to go no farther than Muddy Branch, to which point there are no obstacles. The following letters have been received by Collector Hollingsworth at Georgeto wn rela tive to damage on the upper divisions: Four Locks, Mb., July 16, 1861.?.Vr. Hoi lingsworth.?Dear Sir: My division is all right. No damage done bv the rebels. Respectfully yours, Thos. Hassbtt, Superintendent. The four locks are located 109 miles above Georgetown, and above them there is no dam age. Superintendent Masters, of the Williams, port division, writes as follows: ? The damage done by the rebels in the Wil liamrport division consistsof the cutting of the heel posts of six lock gates, the burning ot a small bridge, ona lock shanty, and the railing torn oft' the Aquednct?all top work that will not interfere with navigation. The water is low at No. 5 (dam), and 1 fear we will not be able to raise it until it rains. The following named boats were burnt: Amelia Snyder (loaded). Unexpected, lien Darby, Jas. Baker, Juniatta, R. H. Alvey, Charles Ardinger, Frances, Alex. Shaw and Little Bob,(empty.)" Nine boats were saved on this division. From these accounts it appears that the dam age done is all this side of Williamsport, and* the most serious as yet heard from is at Antie tam aqueduct, the masonry of the trunk be ing thrown down, and the bottom perforated at various place?. This last information is considered doubtful, as another aucuuut is that the top work has been demolished, and bnt one stone bad been cnt out of the bottom.

If he has a son who takes part with the rebels, he is not alone In this respect, for some or the most patriotic men in our midst bare to mourn the fact that their own flesh and blood are ar rarad against them in this struggle.
