Pittsburg, Aug. 5.?A despatch has been received here stating that an engagement was fought yesterday, at four o'clock p m , with the raiders at New Creek, on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, twelve miles eastfrom Pied mont, towards Cumberland. The light was desperate. Later. Pittbbcro, Aug. 5.?General Kelley. tele giaphs, officially, to this city ? My forces re pulsed the enemy yesterday, at New Creek, under McCausland and Bradley Johnson. The enemy attacked our poBt to-day at 3 p. m. The fight continued till late in the evening. The enemy then retired, leaving his killed and wounded. "Their loss was severe; ours light,not ex ceedmg twenty-five killed and fifty wounded. The garrison, under Colonels Stewart and Hayes and Major Simpson, made a gallant re sistance." Governor Curtm calls for thirty thousand militia. The rebels entered Hagerstown this morning at 9 10 a. m. Yesterday, Camp Reynolds, near Pittsburg, was cleared ot troops. This morning, Colonel D. B Morns, In command, left with all the available men, with cooked rations, by special train on the Connellsville railroad. Troops were ready in a surprisingly short time. This district is awake. The Rebels Crossing the Potomac. Harriebijbg, Aug. 5.?Despatches received early thiB morning state that five messengers from Averill's army had reached McCon nellsburg, and reported that the rebels, three thousand strong, were then crossing the Po tomac at Hancock. They further state that our pickets were being driven In towards Cum berland. [SKCOITD DESPATCH ] Intelligence just received in this city con firms the lact that the rebels occupied Hagers town in force at 9 o'clock this morning. More Particulars. Harrtphuko, August 5.?A dispatch from Somerset, received at 10 p. m., states that the Federal Ioes In the fight at New Creek yester day was 29 killed and 50 wounded. Gen. Kelley (as before telegraphed) defeated the rebels. A dispatch from Greencastle, at 8 p. m., states that a gentleman who had just arrived there says he saw the rebels crossing at Wll liamsport between 0 and 7 o'clock this morn ing, and that they consisted of bet ween six and eight thousand infantry and cavalry. Occupation of Hhgerstown Confirmed. Harrihbttro, August 5.?The occupation of Hagerstown is confirmed by official dispatches. Three regiments of cavalry and two of in fantry are strongly posted in and around the town. The expedition being accompanied by infantry is a strong Indication that it is the ad vance of a large body, as no marauding party is accompanied by such troops. After crossing at Shepherdstown, It appears that the enemy pasted through Sharpsbnrg and Funkstown. So sudden was the descent upon Hagerstown that the operator, who communicated the tact, was compelled to leave in a hand-car, closely pursued by a cavalry force He was in range of their revolvers for a considerable time, and only escaped after hard work at the wheels. We are still in telegraph communication with the State Line, a station on the Franklin railroad, seven miles north of Hagerstown. The operator there states that the rebels in Hagerstown have thrown out pickets, but as yet have made no further advance movements. Speculations. Harribburg, August 5.?We had telegraph-, ic communication from this point with the State line at eight o'clock this evening. The communication does not extend beyond Green castle, the rebels having entered Mlddleburg, eleven miles north of Hagerstown. In what force they occupy Mladleburg is not known. It is presumed that they nave moved the five regiments which entered Hagerstown this morning. The movements of the rebels are utterly in explicable, and they seem determined to invest their operations with as much mysterv as pos sible, both as to numbers and the columns they are advancing, and the points at which they design to deliver blows. As an evidence of this fact, at the same time the five regiments already alluded to are advancing towards Chamberfburg, another column is reported moving up the Potomac in the direction of Cumberland, the strength of which none of our officials have been able to learn. A report has just reached these headquarters, telegraphed trom Bedford, to tbe effect that passengers by stage who reached that borough represent that a fight took place at Cumberland on Thursday, resulting in a loss of 20 killed and 30 wounded of the Federal forces. No other particulars are given. SUCCESS OF STOMEMAS'S RAID. Defeat of Wheeler. Loxjibvillb, Aug. 3.?The Nashville Union ol to-day says : Apparently well-authentica ted but official information has been received that General Stoneman not only cut the Macon railroad, but defeated the Rebel Wheeler at Proctor Creek; that the latter lost from 500 to 1,000 men in the fight, and his dead and wound ed fell into our hands. Nashvillk, Aug. 3-?General Stoneman's raid along the Macon railroad met with a great success in cntting the Bebel line of communi cation, and thus completely isolating Atlanta. But I regret the necessity to add that one divis ion ?f cavalry, while returning met with a se rious disaster. The Macon railroad was torn up for eighteen miles, the rails twisted, the ties, tanks, bridges and depots barned, and the road rendered use less for months to come. Returning by way of Newman, capturing a large wagon train, filled with much valuable private property belonging to rebel officers, and among other property were General Woods' papers and a quantity of whiskey, all of which fell into the hands of the general and his forces. , ? _ About this time the rebels, under Gen. Ran som, attacked Gen. McCook. and a fight en sued, In which McCook's Command were routed, and the greater part of them captured. About five hundred of the troops have reported at Marietta, and give fearful stories of losses. The command, at starting, numbered about three thousand two hundred. Gen. McCook is reported killed. ? Nashvillb, August 4.?Gen. Stoneman sent a force of cavalry, composed of Large's and I.agrange's brieades, 3.2U0 strong, on the 20th ult., under command of Edward McCook, to destroy the Macon and Western Railroad. They had destroyed 19 miles of the road and started to captnre a*train of 500 wagonB going from Atlanta to Macon or Columbus. McUoofc captured this train near Newman, with 500 men, Including 127 officers. The magazines were laden with valuable stores, including liquors and private papers of Gen. Hood and ? After possessing themselves of what they v^mted the wagons were burned. McCook then started to return with his prisoners and three thousand mules, but was overtaken by a rebel force, under General Ransom, so large as to completely surround him. A desperate engagement followed, during which many of McCook's men escaped and found their way to Marietta. The number of Federals cap tured, it is supposed, will not reach two thou 8aThis disaster Is attributable to the troops par taking too freely of liquors found in the cap tured train. Logan's brigade coo'Uted of the 30 and 4th Ohio, 2d Indiana, and ith regulars. Part of Lagrangs's brigade was composed of troops who were with General the late expedition. Forrest Is rJPor'?^.t? el Atlanta, under Hood. Two hundred and thirty-seven rebel prisoners reached here last evening, Including eleven commissioned offl Lnter. _ Colonel McCook, who was supposed to hare been capture d near Newman, baa come in ?with 120 of his men. Five hundred had pre viously arrived at Marietta, as reported. He nii successful in breaking the Macon road and capturing and destroying a wagon and railroad train. He captured 74 officers and 35 men, but was obliged to let them go. His safe return with so many of his men reduces his loss very materially. More will probably also get in safe. The Draft Ik Philadelphia. Philadclphia, August 5.?The City Coun cils to-cay voted to pay #400 to every volnn teer, whether for 1,2, or 3 years. This is an increase of *300 over the sum previously paid. PETERSBURG. All Qalft Altif the Liaes-Extremely Hot Wrathrr-Rtkfl Battery the Jsrnea River. Fohtkhi MOK rob, August 4.?Advioee from the tioot represent matters as remaining in the same quiet state since the last battle. The extreme hot weather, the thermometer averaging for the past week 10() degrees above zero in the shade, precludes anything like ac tive movements. Nearly all the wounded have been trans fened from the late battle- n*ld to the hospitals at Old Point, and many of th?m to thedifreren' hospitals In the cities of the North. The steamer De Molav sails this afternoon for New York, with four hundred sick and wounded. It being last day, the principal stores at Old Point and Norfolk are closed, and all kinds of work has been suspended. The steamer J. Johnson, while comingdown the James river yesterday afternoon, with a tow of barges and schooners, was fired upon by a rebel battery at Wilcox ? Landing. No damage was done, however. FROM KAftSAS. Depredations of Guerrillas?A Rebel Or ganization la Denver City. Dewvxr City, August 3.?The Constitutional Convention adjourned to-day. H. D. Towne is nominated for Governor. A amall party of guerrillas, supposed to be from northwestern Texas, have been commit ting depredations In this vicinity for a week past. They robbed the mail coach near Mouat Vernon, lorty miles from here, a few days 6-cce, and took four thousand dollars in gold from the passengers. They claim to be ope rating in connection with a large force, which designs to attack this place. A small party came upon their camp on Saturday, fired into it, and fled, not knowing the strength of the etemy. The guerrillas also scattered. Next night the same party visited the camp, and found a large quantity of stolen property, norses, gold dust, and greenbacks, also a record of their operations on the route from Texa?, showing that they captured two trains on the Arkansas river. It is supposed a rebel organization in this city, numbering several hnndred, la ready to aid the guerrillas whenever they attack the place. FROM LOUISIANA. General Ranks and Exchanged Prisoners?? The New State Constitution. Cairo, August 5.?New Orleans dates to the 29th ult. have been received. General Banks has officially acknowledged the exchange of prisoners recently arrived there, and ordered those belonging to tho 13th and 19th corps to report to the proper officers for duty, and those whose term of service has expired to proceed to their respective States to be mustered out. Lieutenant Governor Wells has is ued a proclamation directing an election the first Monday in September, for the ratification or rejection of the constitution adopted by the Constitutional Convention. FROM EUROPE Palfhrrston on the American War* Lord Palmerston, in the House of Commons, in response to an inquiry whether England in tended acting in concert with other European Powers, in the endeavor to bring about a sus pension of hostilities in America, stated he thought no advantage was to be gained by meddling. The Bank of England has raised its rate of discount to 7 per cent. Erie railroad preferred shares declining per cent.; Illinois Central declined half per cent. It is reported that the rebel Slidell is on ft visit to the Emperor Napoleon. News by the Africa. Halifax, August 3?The steamship Africa, Captain Stone, from Liverpool at 10^ o'clock on the morning of July 23, via Queenstown on the 24th, arrived here at9 o'clock this evening, with two days later news from Europe. The United States steamers Niagara and Sa cramento were at auchor off Antwerp on the 19th of July. The recently reported naval en gagements are all supposed to be canards. The depaitnre of Captain Semmes for Nas sau is untrue. He is said to have been on 'Change at Liverpool on the 23d. but his visit was not generally known, and no demonstra tion was made. The Army and Navy Gazette has editorial speculations on the Confederate invasion of Maryland. It says the movements are yet of a raid-like character, and if the Confederate leaders do not act with the greatest rapidity, they will be overwhelmed by hordes of Fea eral militia and other troops. The London Times publishes correspon dence from Richmond to June 30. The writer represents that there are no apprehensions felt for the safety of Richmond, and asserts that any single corps of the Confederates could hold the works around and about the city against any considerable force of the Union ists. He adds that the greatest jeopardy for the Confederates was in the neighborhood of At lanta, but that Confederate troops wosld be sent there In great numbers. Extraordinary Railroad Accident. Norribtown, August 4.?A singular railroad accident, but fortunately not attended with any loss of life, occurred on the Reading road about a mile below this place this afternoon. Two coal trains were following each other, moving north. The leading train stopped sud denly, and its rear train was immediately struck by its successor; at least a dozen empty coal cars being broken and thrown in all di rections by the concussion. Some of these cars obstructed the adjacent track, down which the express passenger train lrom Pottsville and Harrisburg came within one minute of the collision of the coal trains. The engine of the passenger cars dashed through the obstructions with the loss only of its ornaments, but the succeeding baggage and express cars were not so fortunate, but were thrown from the track, overset, and broken into fragments, with all their contents. The neighboring telegraph poles and wires were all destroyed. Tne breaking of the coup ling between the express and emigrant cars alone saved the entire train with three hun dred passengers lrom destruction. The ac cident was one against which no foresight could have provided, and the manner In which it occurred was extraordinary. The passen gers from the express train reached the city by wt.y of the Philadelphia, Oermantown. and Norristown railroad. Arrest of Counterfeiters?Great Haul ol Plates, Notes, Ac. St. Louis, Aug. 5.?Col. Biker, chief na tional detective, who has been here several days on official business, succeeded in ferret ing out the most extensive and successful gang of counterfeiters ever known in the United States.
