THE NEW RAID. Oir Ftrcfi Tft in Po*if>si?a of Martiss burg?Communication Open Frederick and U?|?r?uw? ?Trains Running Rfjnlarly to Harper's Ferry? The Reported Fighting at Frederick Yet terdny Untrue?Firing Heard in the Di rection of Williasssport Marliii barg. We learn from one of the directors of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, upon the author ity of a telegraph operator who reached Bal timore last evening at half-past seven o'clock Jrom Harper's Ferry, that our forces held Mar tmsburg yesterday morning. The report that the rebels had crossed the yiver at Shepherdstown is untrue. Communi cation between Frederick and Hagerstown is still open, and the stage from the latter place, ?with the mails, arrived at Frederick yesterday at the usual bonr. Trains are running regularly between Baiti more and Harper's Ferry. The down train Irom Harper's Ferry reached Baltimore yes terday evening at half past seven. A report was brought here this morning, by a panicky-horse contractor, that there was lieavy fighting yesterday at Frederick, result ing adversely to as, and that he escaped with lour hnntired horses. Tbe above facts show the falsity of the horse contractor's report. Passengers from Western Maryland, who came down this morning, report that heavy Uring was heard on Monday in the direction of Martinsburg, and yesterday firing was heard Irom up the river, apparently in the neighbor hood of Williamsport. WORK TO B* DONE. We have not yet sufficient data to show the extent of the rebel force now on the Maryland line?whether ;J,000 or 50,000, though it is prob ably nearer the former than the latter number Neither has it been developed whether the purpose of the enemy is merely to hold the valley to the end of saving the crops of that Tich country for the Confederate granary, or ?whether they purpose another incursion in this direction, encouraged by their late partial successes. But it will not be creditable to us as a people If taxing warning by the past, we are not bet ter prepared for the emergency, should they move in this direction, than we were on the oc casion of their last visit. There is abundant material here for an effective force for the de fence of the city. Wtiv cannot it be organized in a way to make it effective ! And to be ef fective the work of organizing: and drilling must be entered upon at once. Let us not wait again until the enemy is within five miles of the city before we undertake to organize the local militia We trust that there will be some attention aiven, too, to the condition of the city's de k lILe ?P'nions of engineers may cllfler. We think there can be no harm in takin^ the safe side and making security doubly se cure Let lt be seen to in season that thI ra dioes between earthworks are so covered that tiiey ^iii not aflord a possible screen for the advance of an enemy. Let it be seen to in season that no important main line of approach is covered only by a single earthwork of no great strength, and of no strength at all when half its circumference as passed. If at any of the earthworks the abattis is old and rotten, let it be replaced. We suppose, of course, that precautions will be ! taken to the end that rebel sharpshooters can not approach under cover of underbrush to within fitly yards of a fortificition, and pick ott gunners from the walls, as was done by them in front of Fort Stevens. There is no probability that the enemy will undertake so desperate an enterprise as that of an assault upon our fortifications, even should he come again in this direction; but it will not he wise to tempt him to it by anv remissness ou our part. THE RAID Rl'MORs, We were able during yesterday to ascertain nothing definite with regard ti the rebel move- I ments at Martinsburg and alone the line of the .Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, further than the lact that most of the exciting stories in circula tion on Monday evening were either unfound ed or greatly exaggerated. As far as could be ascertained lastevening Gen. Avenll has not been killed as reported, but was compelled by a greatly superior rebel loroe to fall back. Whether the rebels occu pied Martinsburg last night, is not known, though a dispatch lrom Chambersburg says positively that It was still held bv den. Crook yesterday. Yesterday the trains to Frederick and Wash ington went out as usual, and a tram for San dy Hook left at 7.45 a. m. The suspension of telegraphic operations on Monday is said to have been caused by the storm of wind blowing down a pole. General Hunter has, however, forbidden all telegraphic communication with Harper's lerry, and of course we have nothing later from that vicin ity except that brought by passengers by the train which arrived last evening. They re ported all quiet there, and no enemy in the vi- i cinity. General Crook had fallen back before a superior rebel forqa, losing neither guns or trains as reported* and neither General Avenll or General Kelly bad been killed, wounded or captured, lt '^as reported that Colonel Mul ligan bad bven killed, but even this was not ; certainly known. It is now that Martinsbnrg is still in oar possession, and that our troops simply back to that point before a superior force rA the enemy without having sustained any ! serious loss. The telegraph was yesterday working to Harper s Ferry, and trains running i to that point and Frederick without iuterrup- i Uou?Baltimore American, '2~th. Financial.?The New York Commercial Advertiser of yesterday evening says: The stock market opened more buoyant than lor several days past. There was a quite an active speculative demand, and the transac tions included a large amount of buyers'op- i Hons. Governments were strong, without any spe- j eixlly assignable cause, further than the policy of the Secretary of the Treasury is now more 1 clearly known, which relieves the depression naturally accompanying t&e late uncertainty. ' Wail street has at last found terra firma. The ancertainties that have long embarrassed the movements of the stock exchange appear to bo lor tbe present removed, and prepara tions are making for a renewal of active ope rations. The invitation of Secretary Fessen den for subscriptions to a loan on seven-thirty j notes removes all apprehension of a sudden drain upon tne money market, and makes it clear that, for sometime, the wants of the Gov- ; ernment will be supplied by a steady abBorb tion, leaving tbe ordinary course of monetary affaws imperceptibly affected. This betokens good alike for the money mar ket and the Government. The banks have in creased their supply of legal tenders ten mil lions of dollars by withdrawals of loans from the pnb'ic treasury, placing them in a position to pay promptly all demands for greenbacks, aid strengthening confidence in their ability to afiord all reasonable accommodations to their cus'omers. The result of recent nepjo tiations between the banks and Secretary Fes aecden has tended to convince the customers of the banks that henceforth those Institutions must confine themselves to the more legiti mate business ot banking, and no more risk the disarrangement of their affairs and the {arual tnspenslcn of their proper functions y undertaking large loans. This removes a source of much uneasiness, and is a step to ward a more normal state of affairs. Mocks were active and stronger after the 3hrst board. Governments continue firm at the morning's advance. Gold, at 2 p. m , was steady at 258. The Express says: The announcement of the new loan is con atraed as meaning no more gold bondafor three years and hence there was an activ^demand tor governments, with a rise of one to three Kr cent* except on tbe certificates.

Hunter's Department?Early Again Menacing Maryland?Battle at W mchester Fought?Martinsbnrg Held by the Rebels. [Dispatch to the Philadelphia Inqairer.J Harrirbubo, July 26.?Little is known here officially about the army movements in Northern Virginia; except that there was heavy | fighting at Winchester yesterday, and that our forces were defeated. Hunter was gathering bis forces to make a final stand at Martinsburg, but a private dispatch received here to-day represents the rebels as occupying Martins burg this morning. It is not thought that the rebels will attempt to cross the Potomac, although their forces are evidently the same as those engaged in the Maryland raid. ^ Latest from Harrisbnrg. Harrisrcbg, Julv 26 ? We still have no of ficial intelligence of the fighting in Northern Virginia, bnt from employees of the (Jovern i ment who came down the valley to-day, I learn that fighting was going on in the streets of Martinsburg on Monday noon, when they left the town. After hard fighting our forces retired. We are said to have lost several pieces of artillery at the battle of Winchester on Sun day, but most of them were rendered useless before their capture. The forces and purposes of the enemy are all I unknown. Where Gen. Crook has retired to It is not politic to say, but he and Hunter will j act in conjunction. There is no excitement | here or up the valley. Colonel Mulligan, it is certain, was killed in the battle on Sunday. There is no evidence of the enemy crossing the Potomac as yet. Humors of the most exaggerated character, without any basis in fact, prevailed. News by Way of Chambersburg. Chambersruro, July 26, 11 A. M.?The rebels have not advanced further than Mar tinsburg. As yet there is no indication of a rebel movement beyond that point. SunRTITFTHS IW ADVANCE Of THE DUAt-'T. The Philadelphia Bounty Commission som" time ago addressed a letter to Provost Marshal General Fry, asking whether in the case of one liable to draft procuring a substitute, the risk is with the Government or with the principal, when a substitute falsely represents himself as net liable to draft, and succeeds in satisfy ing the Provost Marshal, but is subsequently proven to have been liable. To this a reply was given on July lflth as follows: "If the board of enrollment accepts a sub stitute, it will issue a certificate of exemption to the enrolled man furnishing him, which will exempt him from liability to military service for the time mentioned therein " On July 15th the following was published for information: EnJnrsrment.?"Boards of Enrollment arenot required to decide wbetber or not a substitute oflered by an enrolled or drafted man isexempt from the draft. If the substitute so furnished, at any time during his term of service, becomes liable to draft, the name of the principal Is put in the wheel in his stead. Certificates should in no case read as exempting for three years, but as exempting for so long as the substitute is not liable himself ta dratt, not to exceed the term of such enlistment." By command of the Provost Marshal Gen eral. ?yThey claim to have a sea-bass in Hart forn weighing 35 pounds.

It appears that the rebel authorities agaii allow aliens to pass through their lines, as quite a large Dumber ol these refugees have reached this city within the past few days. Yesterday eighteen presented themselves at the Provost Marshal's office, and took the oath of I fidelity to the United States Government j Among the number was e woman, a native of ! Canada, who walked all the way from Rich J mond to this city, having been provided with a pass by the rebel authorities. When she arrived at Col. Ingraham's office she was com pletely worn out, and was suffering greatly from sore feet. She was sent to the Home of : Friendless Women to be cared for. CONFISCATED PROPERTY. i The steamer Lizzie Baker, which arrived i here last night from Point Lookout, brought up a large qnantlty, of household furniture* consisting of handsome cottage sets, mirrors, marble-top tables, refrigerator, feather beds, mattresses, Ac., found in a house about six miles from Fredericksburg, and belonging to a man named Sothoron, who is in the rebel service. Among this lot of furniture is a very fine piano, with a fall set of sheet music, in scribed with the name of Miss Mary Sothoron. These articles have all been confiscated, and will be exposed to pnblic sale. FOR EXCHANGE. This morning Lieut.

The side-wheel steamer Kingston, of the Chesapeake Towbcnt Company, was run aground about eight o'clock Sunday morning, a few miles below the mouth of the Potomac river, on the shore of Northumberland county, Virginia, and stuck fast. The officers and crew, fourteen in number, remained on board all day Snndsy, but at night the rebels were seen coming down on the beach, and the crew took to their boats and esc3p?d. The rebel3 dismantled the steamer and then destroyed her. The pilot, a Baltimorean, was suspected of foul play in the matter, and has been taken to Philadelphia tor examinauon. The vessel was worth fitty or sixty thousand dollars. CAPTURED. A few days ago a supply boat took down a number ot con valescent officers, who were or-, dered ?o rejoin their regiments in Grant's army.

Mounted Rifles, and two or three others went athore to look around, when they were gobbled up by ten rebel guerrillas who were prowling about there. Neither of the officers was armed, and consequently could make no resistance. AliREPT OK A PAYMASTER. At a late hour on Monday, G. P. Folsom, an additional Paymaster in the United States army, was arrested in this city, by order of the Secretary of War. Folsom is said to be a de fanlter to the amount of about SI 1,000. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. THE ARMY GEORGIA. The Desperate Fighting Before Atlanta - The First Hand to Hand Contest ol the Campaign?Unr Lines Unbroken by Re peated Assaults?A Splendid Union Vic tory?l>nr Lo?s not over U.OOO. [Special Dispatch to the Cincinnati Gazette.. Atlanta, July 22, (via Nashville, July 21.) A glorious victory has been followed by our occupation of this city. A brief rttune of events for the past few days will not be uninteresting to your readers. On July 16th, the last of our forces crossed the river Chattahoochee, and nearly all that day and the next were occupied by the army in getting into line. Nothing more serious than skirmishing occurred during the ISth. The weather was very fine for military operations, it being only moderately warm, and refresh ing showers falling almost every day. For the first lour miles on the southeast side of the Chattahoochee, the country was exceedingly rough and broken, consisting of hills, ridges and ravines, covered with oaks and pines, the whole resembling the Alatoona Mountains. Until the evening of the lath, our advance was resisted principally by dismounted cavalry firing j rem behind logs, rocks, and trees. By the morning of the 19th we had reached the north bf.uk of Peach Tree creek?a considerable stream running north of Atlanta and westward into the Chattahoochee. The rebels were posted all along the soutfi bank of this stream, and became exceedingly sensitive to our further advance. Parts of Schotield's aud Howard's corps crossed the creek, however, on the 19th, and established themselves on the south side. Meantime our left wing, composed of Army of the Tennessee troops, which first crossed the Chattahoochee, had swung around until they had reached the Augusta railroad, two miles west of Stone Mountain, in conjnuctiou with Gerrard's cavalry division. They drove away the rebels who were on thiB road, and tore up gf\eral miles ol track. Rousseau had seriously interfered with communication along the Mo bile railroad, if indeed he had not interrupted it altogether. Only the Macon road was leit open to the rebels, and their situation began to grow desperate. On the I7th of July, Joe Johnston was re lieved of his command of the rebel army, and Hood appointed to succeed him. As the Rebel papers next morning made itevident that Hood was put in command on acconnt of bis des perate fighting qualities, we all began to look auxiously for a battle on the afternoon On the-iuth, portions of Palmer's corps cross?d Peach tree Creek. Dilworth's, formerly Dan McCook's brigade, of Davis' division, which, with the exception of Morgan's brigade, aud some skirmishers, was on the extreme right of oor line, was met by fierce opposition. As it ad vanced toward a high ridge held by the rebels one regiment, the Ohio, being somewhat ahead of the others, was so furiously assailed that it was compelled to give way, and its commanding officer, Lt. Col. Clancey, was captured. The integrity of the line, however, was speedily restored, and the brigade finally established south of the creek. Col. Mitchell's brigade was hurried down to the support of Col. Dilwortb, and also crossed the creek. Oor loss in his affair was a little short of two hun dred and fifty men. On the morning of the 20th Gen. Hocker's corps crossed the creek to the left of Palmer's, and took position in some low ground along the stream, without fortifying. Still further to the left, Newton's division of Howard's corps had crqssed and moved out ol the bottom and to biplier ground?indeed, upon a portion of the same ridge before snoken or as extending all along the south side of the creek, and occupied by the rebels. Immediately upon ad\ancing to this position Gen. Newton's men commenced to fortify. They were still engaged in thiB work, when, about half-past three in the., alterno?n, they were assailed with des perate energy by Bates'and Walker's divisions of Hardee's corptf. The rebels came up in some places in two lines, and some in three, and, m spite of the most fearful losses, advanced re peatedly to within two or three rods of our lines. Kimball's brigade was on the right of the division, and for a moment seemed to fal ter, but fresh troops were hurried up to form on Kimball's right, along Blake's front, to Bradlev's extreme left. The entire division, stood as firm as a rock. The storm which had strut k Newton so fiercely rolled over toward: the left of Hooker's corps. Gen. Ward's divi sion held the left of the.corps, Geary the can ter. and Williams the right The advance of the rebel skirmishers toward Hooker s lines indicate their intention to at tack; and his troops, in anticipation of the same, were speedily brought forward from the low ground along the creek to bigher ground. In front of this high ground they were in line with Newton's division on the left^aad John son's division of Palmer's corps on the right. Just as they had reached the crest of the fidge, with a considerable stretch of QP?a J in iront, tfcey were met by the rebfel battalions, j composed of Stewart's and parts of Hood s old corps, aleoadvanciag three lines deep from the woods beyond.the open ground- tot the first time in the campaign, a fight took plaoa With neither party behind works. , '? Almost the bole of Hooker s corps was iti. 4 e&? ?track simultaneously, although as the ware of bAttle rolled from left to right, Wwd'i division was engaged a minute or two sooner than the others. Face to face the combatants stcod, firing deadly volleys into each other's bosoms. At times the line was not more than fifteen feet apart. Oa Colonel Harrison's front, a band to hand conflict actually took place, In which officers as w0U as men were engaged. On Colonel Oolburn'scenter the lines met each other so fnrionsly that they passed one beyond (be other, and each changed front to renew tho conflict. From Colonel Wood's extreme left to Harrison's right, Ward's whole division, except two regiments, was in the front line and furiously engaged. Geary was involved a moment afterwards, and Williams simulta neously with Geary. II the left of Geary wavered for a moment under the first rude shock. It was only to illustrate its discipline ar>d excellence, for Instantly it rallied, re formed its line, and fought with redoubled vigor. Gen. Williams' division also gloriously dis tinguished itself. Knipe's brigade, compassd exclusively of Eastern troops, contended in patriotic and glorious rivalry with Col. Rob inson's, which are nearly all Western; while Auger's, made up from both sections, did Its duty as well. The gallant Coloael DffcGroarty, of the Gist Ohio, received one more in addition to his numerous wounds, and will probably lose an arm. From Williams' divis ion the attack extended to the left of Johnson's division, of Palmer's corps. Col. Anson G. McCook was posted there in command of Ge*. Carlin's brigade. One of his regiments gave way temporarily, bnt his skillful dispositions enabled him to rally it almost immediately, and the eatire brigade covered both itself and its leader with imperishable honor. Along such portions of our lines as I have mentioned, have been massed for this attack at least one-half the rebel army. By nightfall this entire bost was discomfitted. It had failed to break our lines at a single point, and retired in disorder, leaving its dead by hundreds on the field. Thus ended this sanguinary conflict No more brilliant victory has crowned the Union arms since the beginning of the war. Gen. Hooker has earned anew the gratitude of the nation. Palmer, Newton, Ward, Williams, Geary, and their subordinates, and soldiers, cannot be too highly praised. Gen. Johnson was as faithful here as everywhere else. Our loss will amount to two thousand men, principally on Hooker's front, because his troops fought in an open field. The rebel loss in killed, wounded and prisoners, will reach six thousand, of whom fully one thousand were killed outright. Three rebel Brigadier Generals were killed?Stephens, Weatherstone and Long. On Blair's and Davis' front heavy skirmish ing took place during the day. On the left wing, McPberson drove the enemy several miles, Blair operating on the extreme left, Lo gan next, and Dodge next, partly in line and partly In reserve. Blair's corps advanced a mile and a half south of the Augusta railroad. General Greshien, who commanded his right division, was grievously wounded. Altogether, the operations on the left were highly success ful. On the morning of the 21st, Johnson's and Baird's divisions, of Palmer's corps, were moved forward, and after a brisk contest, in which we lost perhaps one hundred men, the rebels were driven from the ridge in front, the whole of which was now in our posses sion. By the morning of the 22d, the rebels had withdrawn entirely from Palmer's and Hook er's front, and at 2 a m part of our army en tered Atlanta. We may have more fighting yet for the full possession of the city, but consider that for the present the campaign is substantially over. FROM THE Gl'LF. Blockade Runner Destroyed.

It ap peared that Mr. Purdv was employed as a messenger by R. W. Edmonds, a substitute agent. Mr. Purdy was not authorized to re ceive or pay money for Mr. Edmonds, but had the care of a branch office at 7th street wharf, and was a messenger between that branch and the main office. Mr. Purdy obtained a sub stitute for Mr. H. Seitz, and received #100 for himself and 8100 for the substitute. This money Mr. Edmonds claimed as his, and made the charge of false pretences.
