The exact losses in the battle ot Saturday have not yet been officially ascertained, bnt as BaAr m can be judged will loot up about 2,500, not Including the missing. In the hospital of the 0th corps, the first di vision has 200; the second, 307; the third, 341? the fourth, (colored,) 626; besides a considera ble number lying on the field between the Usee, and who cannot be got off. The 13U? corps lost about 300, while Turner's division, of the 10th, had nearly 400 killed and mounded. A flag of truce was sent out to the enemy on Sunday, for the purpose of getting the remain der of the wounded off the field, but it was re used?the reason not being given. General Butler also sent a flag from his lines, Trhich was likewise retused; the officer giving so reason except his orders, which were per emptory, not to accept a flag under any cir cumstances. They also refuse to exchange paper*, the officers keeping a vigilant watch over the privttes to prevent their doing so. The latter are always willing and anxious to exchange. There must be come good reason for all this, find many believe that their line is very weak< While others think they have some extensive move on foot, and are afraid of it becoming known to us. The raid into Pennsylvania may be the reason, and thev wish to keep it as quiet as possible. All the wounded that have been brought in are being well cared for, the medi cal arrangements being ample. The lines cf the two armies are about the same as before the battle, and picket firing has been constantly kept up since. A later dispatch, of sevea a. m. of the 1st, says a flag of truce was then prevailing, and parties Bad gone ont to bury the dead and bring off the wounded. Thenumber is reported *s being quite large. ANOTHER BIO SCARE. Rebel Guerrillas Make their Appearance .near Rockville?Story of a Scary Or derly. Last night, about eight o'clock, some two liundred rebel guerrillas, supposed to be of Mosebj's command, made their appearance at a point three miles above Rockville, having croesed the river at Nolan's Ferrj. X Parties living in the vicinity, imagining that these guerrillas were the ad vance guard of a large invading force, immediately skedaddled, which occasioned some excitement in this di rection for a short time. Troops were sent from here to intercept the rebels, but they were nowhere to be fonnd, having gone back to the Virginia side of the river. A panic ky orderly came hurrying in to head- J anarters at a late honr last night from Fort , Rer.o, and reported that the rebels in large i lorce, were advancing in the direction of Ten- j xailytown. I Due investigation showed that the report j had no foundation whatever. A Cobbsction.?Onr neighbors of the /n Ulhgrncer, in quoting from our full accounts of the assault upon Petersburg, speak of them as ??semi-official." To prevent misapprehension, 1' is proper to state that, while our reports of the affair were obtained from eye-witnesses, they were in no sense official or semi-official.

Fi#a?ciAL.?The New York Commercial Advertiser of yesterday evening says: Stocks were dull this morning, and general ly lower?a movement anticipated as the re sult of the late rapid advance. Governments were weak, in sympathy with the temporary depression or the market rather than from the military news, which though favorable In the morning, had assumed a doubttul aspect at noon. The miscellaneous list was strong, but rail Tcads showed a general decline of kax, com pared with the closing price of Saturday's board. The tooney market is without material CukDge. There is a steady supply from pri vate lenders, wbill**the banks continue a pol icy of cautloD. All thewants of the street are met readily at seven percent., and In a very few exceptional instances at six per cent. Tne demand from stock brokers is apparently ac tive enough to keep up the rate at seven, until the banks lend more freely. The bank state ment shows the present policy of the banks in respect of loans. The stock market, as might be expected, shows a paitial reaction from the advance of the last few days. The rise has been remarka bly vigorous, aBd attended with none of the symptoms of lack of confidence that have pre vailed ler so many weeks. It seams to be taken for granted that railroad securities are below their real value, and this impression is bringing a large number of bnyers into the market wno have not touched stocks since April last. The brokers are disposed to favor the movement by affording every possible facility to operators, and margins are given with more liberality than at any time since the panic. The advance daring the last fourteen days will average about pu per share on the railroad list. The ??fancy" list also shows a similar rise. The Evening Post says : Gold opened at 251, and on sensation rumors of military reverses before Petersburg, rose to 357)?. Exchange opened at 275, and closed at S79M8A. For sold the rate is 109. The loan market is rather more active at 7 per cent. There is, however, no stringency, and borrowers on first-class securities are readily supplied. Commercial paper is scarce, ao# passes readily at 7al0 per cent. The stock market opened dull and Closed ^?ith a drooping tendency. Governments are lower in consequence of reports that Mr. Fes?enden is about to put on the market a six percent, gold bearing loan. State stocks are quiet, railroad bonds firm, coal storks strong, mining shares improving and railroad shares irregular. nr^TH* PUBLIC ARR IS FORM ED THAT UoP Msrket will bo h> la TJ-MQRRoW (Wed nesday > RVKN JNG.

They are exceedingly agreeable, perfectly pure, and must supercede all other tonics where a healthy, gentle stimulant is I required. They purify, utrengten and invigorate. They create a healthy appetite. They are an antidote to a change of water and diet. They overcome effects of dissipation and late hours. i They strengthen the system and enliven the mind. ' They prevent miasmatic and intermittent fevers. They purify the breath and acidity of the : stomach. Tbey cure Dyspepsia and Constipation, They cure Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera MorbuB. They cure Liver Complaint and Nervous Head ache. They make the weak strong, the languid bril liant, and are exhausted nature's great restorer. They are composed of the celebrated Calisaya bark, wintergreen, sassafras, roots and herbs, all preserved in perfectly pure St. Croix rum. For particulars, sec circulars and testimonials around I each bottle. Beware of imposters. Examine every bottle. See that it has D. 8. Barnes' signature on our pri vate U.S. Stamp over the cork, with plantation scene, and our firm signature on a fine steel plate engraving on side label. See that our bottle is not refilled with spurious and deleterious stuff. We defy any person to match the taste or character of our goods. Any person pretending to sell Plantation Bitters by the gallon or in bulk, is an importer. "We sell only in our log cabin bottle. Any person imitating this bottle, or selling any other material therein, whether called Plantation Bitters or net, is a criminal under the U. S. Law, and will be so prosecuted by us. We already have our eye on two parties re filling our bottles Ac., who willsucceed in getting themselves into close quarters. The demand for Drake's Plantation Bitters from ladies, clergymen, merchants, Ac., is perfectly incredible. The simple trial of a bottle is the evidence we pre sent of their w orth and superiority. They are sold by all respectable druggists, grocers, physicians, hotels, saloons, steamboat- and country store5. F. Hr DRAKE 4c CO., aug! to3m 303 BROADWAY. N. Y.

The report has reached Washington that a party of rebels, supposed to be of Moseby or "White's crowd, yesterday captured the Fred erick stage and passengers just beyond Claries burg, in Montgomery county, and later in the day some of onr forces met them in Clarks burg, and a skirmish ensued, the result of which has not been heard. A REBEL DESERTER'S STATEMENT. His Account of the Rebel Force Operating in the Valley?Force Said to be Nearly 30,000?False Statements Corrected. An apparently well informed deserter from Lee's army, whe has arrived within our lines, states that the only rebel troops operating In the Valley are those of Early's and Breckin ridge's command. Early's troop* were the first sent up the Valley, and on the ere of starting they drew rations for eighteen thous and men. Breckinridge's command followed, which numbered about ten thousand men. There is no truth he says in the rumor that the raiders had been joined by A. P. Hill's corps, for up to Thursday last Hill'* troops were in the entrenchments at Petersburg. The published statement that Anderson's and Heath's divisions were detached from before Petersburg and sent to Richmond to look after Hancock, leaving A. P. Hill's corps within the deiences at Petersburg, is also incorrect he says. Heath's and Anderson's divisions com pose Hill's corps, and they could not have been Bent away, for Hill was certainly in the de. fences oi Petersburg at the time of the explo sion of Grant's mine. CHANGED HIS MIND. Among a number of rebel prisoners brought here this morning from Frederick, was a young man by the name ol Frank Dungan, who says that he was enticed away from Baltimore (where he resides) on the l*2th of July, by two yonng men, named John Per igo and Frank Molton, for the purpose of joining the rebel Brad Johnson's command. Perigo and Molton joined the rebels, bnt when Dungan reached the rebel General's headquarters hechaneed his mind and refused to enter the service. Upon Dungan's refusing to enlist, Johnson drove him off, and told him he had "better go home to his mammy." On Saturday last, while Dungan was attempt ing to join our lines, he was picked up near the mouth ot Monocacy by some of our troops, and sent to this city as above stated. At the Provost Marshal's office this morning, Dungan appeared very anxious to get home, and asked permission to take the oath of allegiance. He is only about seventeen years of age, and ap pears to be quite intelligent. He will be com mitted to the Old Capitol to await the action of Judge Turner. THE GARRISON OF CHARLESTON HARBOR We learn from a well-informed party who left Charleston a few weeks ago that the har bor of that place is garrisoned by the follow ing rebel troops .?1st South Carolina artillery, Col. Rbett; 'Jd South Carolina artillery, Col. Frederick; 1st South Carolina infantry, Col. D'Terville, (all regulars;) 32d Georgia and 4Sth Mississippi. In the interior of Soath Carolina there are no troops but a few small detach ments of various commands acting as provost g uards. REBEL PRISONERS. Charles H. Matthews, Charles W. Eader, Nicholas Fitz-lmmons, of the 3oth Virginia battalion, and J. li. Deaver, of the 1st Mary land cavalry, were captured on Saturday last in the river near the mouth ot the Monocacy, while endeavoring to get back to Virginia from the Maryland shore, where they had been on a chicken stealing expedition. "The prisoners were brought to this city thid"morning and committed to the Old Capitol. THE EXPLODED REUIMENT. The regiment which was blown up by Gen Grant's mine, in the lort in front of Petersburg, was the 1st South Carolina regiment, formerly of Jenkens' old brigade, and was commanded by Colonel Hagood. At the time of the ex plosion it numbered but two hundred and fifty men, having been badly cut up in previous service. 0RDNANC1 OFFICER OF THE MILITARY DIS TRICT OF WASHINGTON. Lieutenant Charles C. Hyatt, of the 7th regi ment, Veteran Reserve Corps, has been de tached from duly on the staff of the 1st Brigade Veteran Reserve Corps, and detailed as ord nance officer of the Military District of Wash ington. LOCAL NEWS. Tne Toubnamkut.?Yesterday afternoon, the announced ?'tournament" came ofl at the Park. The grounds were hardly large enough, and in the short distance the horses rau they could haruly get steam enough up for tourna ment purposes, but nevertheless some of the knights showed good horsemanship. A stand bad been erected for the accommodation ol the ladies, alongside the track, which was well filled by five o'clock, at which time the riding was to have commenced.

Yesterday morning officer Olemenui arrested Clapp, and took him before Justice Ferguson, who held him to bail Cor court, he waiving an examination. > j Singula* Occcrrence?Yesterday after noon. a singular occurrence took place near the corner of 2d and Dstraets. Capitol Hill, where by A woman named Bridget Hozau, supposed to be a stranger here, was badly burned. It appears tbat she was clothed in tbin material', and near tbe above named spot a sparlc of Are from her pipe which she was smoking, Ml on her apparel and immediately was in a sheet of flames. The poor woman immediately called for help, but the living jume distance from any house before assistance reached her her clothes were burnt entirely ofl", and the up per portion of ber body was badly burnt, the i>km other neck, arms and breast peeled oft. The neighbors were quickly near otiering her assistance, and Officer Clements procured her a permit to Providence Hospital to which be removed her. ? Charge of Attempt at Rapr.?Snnday night Officer Johnson, of the Third Ward, ar rested Wm. E. Miller on charge of an attempt to commit a rap*; on Margaret Hudson. The case was taken before Justice Thompson, when it appeared in evidence that the complainant, with another girl, was invited to an office on 9th street, where he would write a note and then go with them to the United States Hotel. In the office Miller locked the door and turned off the gas, and then attempted to commit the crime alleged by the complainant. Sbe re sisted.

Between two Fires.?Mr. William Dough erty, formerly a well known bnilder here, who has been in So'ith Carolina from a period some time before the war commenced, has just re turned to Washington. Mr. Dougherty had a heavy contract on the stone work on the new South Carolina State Capitol at Columbia, and bas never, it is said, been engaged in the war. He had property m this city against which a decree of confiscation was made; and at tbe same time he has a large amount due him for work on the South Carolina structure, or rather he anrt others hold the bonds of the State therefor. He being here, the latter Is in peril. He thus seems to stand between two fires as to the prospects of confiscation. Drowned.?Yesterday afternoon Officers Sbelton and Berkely lound the body of a drowned man In the Eastern Branch, near the Engineers' Camp. It had apparently been in the water some days, and bad nothing on but a hospital shirt.

The iarmers are sending large quantities to market, the quality of which readily secures the highest prices from dealers as well as from private purchas ers. A rumor bas been floating around tbat a de tachment of Moseby's guerrillas had driven our pickets into Rockville. No doubt squads of those horse thieves may have made a sud den visit to the Maryland shore at points near that locality, but as we can find noone who can give an intelligent statement of the fact, it is fair to presume that they returned to the Vir ginia side speedily, without stealing more than afcblcken or two. The Aldermen's Adjourned Meeting.?Last night tbe Board of Aldermen were to meet to act upon the police increase pay bill. The meeting was not large, but very respectable, one member appearing in bis place.
