THE EVENING STAR. THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY Miuar*u of the Rnfmy-The Potomac net yet Crested?The Fijhting and Iiici. 4?(s. fCoryespon<ienc?? of th* Ohronigle.) BaLtimArr. July ?.-Ths latest nivijes flom Harper's Ferrv.at 1 3t? p. m., state that all wsp quiet there. No rebels were to be foand tlii* aide of the river, nor had any demonstra tion* been made to crow at any of the lower fords, all of which were guarded. There were no rebels north of the Baltimore and Otxio raii "oJ'n. Wight's hpadqnarters were at Monoo acv at noon, and the line of his forces ^as *x" ii oded Jrom that point nearly to Edwards Ferry. The furds above were not guarded, ?.nd yet there had be*n no appearance of th<^ en?my In the vicinity of ShCpherdstown or Sharptburg. From these and other indtca iK?n?rsbow!n(r that they do not courts con flict the general conviction among onr troops was'that they had no intention ol crossing the river at all. immediately after they had driven (General Crick, they recorameused the harvesting in which they had been engaged before their collision with that officer. Onr lines were Inst night (Wednesday) all on the north aide of the river. General Hunter Issued orders to General "Wright to remain in his present posi tion Gen. Crook assumed command of the troops to-day, and shortly after orders were iasaed to i*cross the river. _ t , The different estimates of the rebel forces which the investigations of the sconts of the rwamandt of HnnW and Wright have In duced, coiifirm the statement of our previous Utter The general impression being that they do not nnmber 5<V 00. It was rumored at the Jerry that Gen. Grant had telegraphed to Gen. Huuter io bold Maryland Heights at all haz ard. and that he would be amply reinforced in a r'ay or two. The movements of Gen. Wright, under the order of to-day, it. v.-as expected, would be in advance of those ot Crook's forces. The latter General was believed to have determined to attempt to compel the rebels to abindon their bar\esting in the Valley of the Shenandoah. It was expected,in view of this determination, and of the fact that marching order* had baen ordered, that a collision would take place to morrow. A considerable portion werereclothed and otherwise reprovisioned to-day. The men, though much worn, were in better spirits than r several days pa?t. They are anxious to do all in their power towards cutting off the raid ers, but do not express very sanguine hopes of auocess in such purpose. The officers of Hunter's command, who have r'.-ently passed through the Valley of the Shenandoah, state that the crops there are very abundant, and that success in harvesting and conveying away even a fair proportion of them would fully repay the enemy for all the toil and loesesot their present expedition. Oar losses In the fight at Winchester, they say, did ?ot amount to one thousand, though there was a large number of the troops who were so much worn by the fight, in addition to their previous privations and hardships, that they ?were not in efficient fighting or even retreating condition. The command of Crook (late Hun ter's) la, however, still formidable enough, with such accessions as they are sure to have in a few days, fully to cope with the rebels, if they succeed in keeping them within reach. Of the circumstances of Mulligan's casualty, we learn that he was wounded while gallantly charging at the head of his hrigade. He was hit twice?once in the shoulder and again in the thigh?and fell from bis horse. Though completely overpowered, his troops rallied aronnd him and endeavored to save both him and the colors. While a squad of them were ?nrrying him off the field, the rebels charged apon them, and finding that they could not carry off both blm and the colors, Mulligan twice ordered them to leave him and save the colors. Finally they obeyed the first part of the order, and sought to comply with the ?<ber part of it; but they had delayed too long. They were surrounded and both the Colonel and tfceir colors captured. It was feared that fee bad died from the effects of his wounds, which were known to be very severe. To-day t flag of truce went out to the enemy's lines, ecompanied by Mrs. Mulligan, to get his body Tne order of General Hunter, Issued a few Cays ago, that all the secessionists ot Freder ick should be 6ent south of the lin*s, to day being enforced F. E. F. Later. Balttmobk, Jnly11 p. m ?Martinsburg is t opposed to have been evacuated to-day by the enemy, Lieut. Nugent, 14th Ohio, was killed while endeavoring, on Sunday, to carry from the feeldColonel Mulligan. Lieut. Bains, 161st Ohio, was drowned to-day is the Monocacy. General Hunter still commands the Depart ment of Virginia; General Crook, the troops ia the field. The enemy are believed to be falling back, preparatory to an advance in another direc tion. Onr forces are moving in pursuit. The bridge over Black creek, on the Ohio and Baltimore railroad, has been burned. No otter damage. F- E.
