Yesterday they advanced a small force to Middleburg. a point north of ibe State line, and between which and Hagers town tbeir foraging parties are reported to have conducted themselves with great brutali ty. From rumors this morning, it is evident that this force bas been withdrawn from Middle burg, and once more posted at Hager&tewn, ?where the rebels evidently pause in tbeir pro gress for reinforcements. The fact that thsy were signalling by rockets lastnightat Hagers town is an indication that there is either a force in close proximity to that place, or those in possession of the town desire to inform ap proachiBg parties ol their whereabouts. The Rebels Evacuate Hagerstown and Retreat up the Potomac. H abrisburg, August 6.?A dispatch re ceived here at noon, by the Cashier of the Harrisburg Bank, from the Cashier of tLe Bank of Chambersburg, states that the rebels evacuated Hagerstown this morning. This was subsequently confirmed by dispatches to headquarters, which added that the rebels are now retreating along the Potomac in the direction of Shepherdstown. The last dispatch from the operator at Green castle stated that be was about to proceed to the State line, and from thence to Hagerstown, to open up telegraphic communication.

All is quiet around here. The troops of Gen. Wright are thought to be engaged. Retreat of the Rebels. Harribburg, August 6.?Passengers by the Cumberland Valley train, at noon, report that the rebels bave left Hagerstown, not having committed any depredations whatever thus far. The rebel picket line at Middleburg has receded. The telegraph line, however, is cut beyond Greencastle, so that we have but few particulars. This whole movement is regarded as a feint to cover a grander movement on the Potomac, but has failed in every way. From- Chambersburg. Chambbbsbubg, August 6.?The rebels are this side of Hagerstown.

Habbibbubo, Aug. 2.?Advices have been received from Alleghany oounty, Md., dated Augnst 2, which say : Heavy firing ot artillery has beer, heard in the neighborhood of Cumberland all day. Infoimation has been received from a rebel deserter named Walker, who says the rebel cavalry under Johnson, McCausland and Jack son, is the party advancing on Cumberland and this State, and they are to be joined by Early and Imboden. The whole force is to center at Cumberland and march on Pittsburg and Wheeling. Their whole strength is about 25,000 or 30,000. Should tbey be successful, they will then match on Cincinnati and cross into Kentucky. This in formation Is received from persons whose names it would be imprudent to mention. The rebels have burned all the bridges on the Cumberland turnpike, and felled trees across the road. It was the 8th Virginia cavalry that burned Chambersburg. They have in several cases ravished women on their route. Gen. Averill will be compelled to move to wards Bedford in order to operate against the rebels Averill is doing all he can. Preparations for the Enemy. Pittbbubu. August 7.?From General Row ley, commanding this district, (Monongahela,) 1 learn that his scouts yesterday were at Oak land, Piedmont, Cranberry Summit and Cum berland. / At this time there are no advices or signs of raiders west of Hagerstown. The passes of Laurel Ridge, through which tbey would have to come to reach this vicinity, are all well guarded. If they persist in the movement westward, they will come through Northwestern Virginia. In either case Gen. Rowley will be prepared. Scouts are out, and we have also good batteries. Excitement Subsiding.

Baltimore, August 7.?It is reported here that a force of rebels were crossing the Poto mac yesterday beyond Hancock, and were going in the direction of Wheeling. The same authority saya that Early has been or is being reinforced by Longstreet's corps, and that Wheeling is the point to be aimed at. There is no means of ascertaining tbe reliability of this report. It is probably mere conjecture. No Battle Yet?One Imminent. Habbibbubo, August 7.?After careful in vestigation of rumors, and on inquiry at mili tary headquarters in this city, it is ascertained beyond a doubt that there has been no con siderable contest fought in tho' vicinity of the old Antietam battle-ground up to six o'clock this evening _ .

This is made certain by tne fact that we have telegraphic communication with Hagerstown, and that tbe military operator there, in his usual despatches addressed to these headquar ters during the day, has rot even referred to a rumor ot a battle. . ^ , It is difficult to ascertain where the rebels are posted, but the impression among the military men here is that a collision will take place near Middletown, on the CatooUa crook, about twelve miles,north of Frederick.

ARMY BEFORE ATLANTA. The Battle ef Jnly ??th?Another Rebel Repulse?The Enemy's Less 3,000 to 4,uou?Army ef the Tenuessee?Qeaeral Howard Takes Cemmand?The Sltaatieu and Pretpects. Special correspondenceof Cincinnati Gazette. | Nsab Atlanta, Ga., July 2!).?A week ago to-day the Army of the Tennessee lost its be. lovea commander in the great battle southeast ot the walls of the Gate City. Yesterday the invincible army confronted the same city on the southwest, and again fought with a steadi ness which certainly has never been excelled in the history of the war. At midnight on the 2ih, the 16th corps, from the extreme left, marched towards toe right. It was immedi ately followed by the 17ta corps, and it by the l5&. By lour o'clock ol the 27th, cne advance of G'en. Dodge's command began to go into po sition on the right df Jeft. C. Davis* division, 14th corps. Gen. Morgan's brigade of this division was formed in colnmn of attack on the right of Gen. Davis' line, to aid in taking position. Gen. Corse's division was placed next?Col. Rice's brigade first, and Lieut. Col. Phillips' brigade next. Gen. Fuller's division, which was a little delayed in getting up, formed still on the right?Col. Sprague's brig ade first, and Lieut Col. McDowell'a on the right. When all was ready, Gen. Morgan moved forward and easily drove in the rebel skir mishers. The brigades on his right moved up in turn, each clearing its front of the rebel pickets, and meeting with no loss of conse quence. By dark the line was preity well established for the 16th Corps, facing east, and the l~th Corps was well on its ri^ht, while the 15th was in bivouac in rear of the 17th. In tbe advance of our troop* tbey found a rebel captain killed, and left on the ground. Thus was the Army of the Tennessee trans ferred for the fifth time in this campaign from one flank to the other. The boys say that Gen. Sberman styles this army his corkscrew, by which he draws out the obstinate cork of the rebel position. Although I learn that Schofleld repulsed our attack on his line yesterday, and that Palmer sent ont a strong skirmish line which foand the enemy In column of attack in his front, from which be did not attempt to advance, yet the battle of yesterday, 1 presume, can be safe ly located in the Army of the Tennessee, and particularly on Gen Logan's corps. It was just into position, or rather just going into position, when it found its 2d division, Gen. Morgan L. Smith, confronted by a rebel colnmn of attack, which In a moment bore down upon the division with almost irresisti ble violence. Again as on the 22d, our troops had no intrenebments, but this gallant corps, the names of whoee battles its flags are not large enough to contain, made no objection to an open fight. Massed closely In colnmn, the enemy hurled again and again his new lines against Logan, only to have them one after another cnt to pices and sent rolling back. But more troops were brought up, and again the attack was made at nearly the same place. Oar men, who had marched and worked two nighta and a day with scarcely any ^est, and who now had passed through an action quite as se vere as usually falls to the lot or a division in the severest battles, again stood up to ponr their leaden hall into the advancing column. Not an inch was yielded, not a man flinched. With a valor that can never be too well ap preciated or two well rewarded, Gen. Logan's corps held its ground from 11 o'clock until 5, under attacks too numerous to be remembered, and at night claimed the heaps of rebel dead and wonnded in its front. There can be node feat possible to such troops. During the course of the battle Gen. Howard called up four regiments from Gen. Dodge, to be ready in case of need, and Lieut. Col. Puil lips, with the Slst Ohio and 12th Illinois, of his brigade, and Col. Claddock, with the 35th New Jersey and 64th Illinois of Fuller's division, went to their support. They were not called on. however, to fight. This excellent division was sent early in the morning on the Turner's Ferry road toward the river. It became engaged there slightly with some cavalry of the enemy, but was or dered back to fall on the flank of the rebel at tacking column. Owing to the want of roads, he could not get up In time. He must be v-ry near the Macon road, and threatening It. Oen. Howard, the Havelock of our army, assumed command of the Department and Army of the Tennessee on the 27th inst., in aa order which at once endears him to every sol dier whom he commands. As a model of brevity and beauty of diction it cannot be sur passed. 1 have heard no estimate of onr own losses yesterday. Those ot the enemy are put at lrom three to four thousand, which, from the nature of the ground and the extent of the lighting, I should think a low estimate. Hood's and Hardee's corps had followed our move ment and just got into position when the attack was made. During the day the enemy got a battery of 12-ponnders in position, bo they nearly enfi laded the line of the lUth corps, and they threw shells fast and fnrions for nearly an hoar. They fell In all sorts of places. Gen. Dodge's headquarters were particularly hot for a while. A shell struck once within twenty eet of the General, and covered him with the dirt thrown up. General Fuller escaped little bet ter; nor was General Corse forgotten. All the teams were moved to the rear. In the works one man was killed, belonging to Battery F. 2d U. S. Artillery. As soon as the ehelling ceased, our boys all became engineers, and began building traverses to protect themselves from another trial. On our part no artillery was used. It was purely au infantry battle. Even the rebel guns played more to the right of the troops attacked, than directly towards them. Ero. [From Another Correspondent.] The Battle of the 28th. Headquarters 16th a. C., Army of the Tenn., Ga., July28.?To-day has witnessed another spirited conflict between our men aad the rebels. This morning at an early hour I went to the right where there were probable indications of a fight. 1 passed Gen. Hooker's Corps, (20th,) aad was informed that General Hooker was out making a farewell address to bis troops. He has been relieved of his com mand at his own request. The 16th, 17th, and 15th Army Corps were in position and It was quite evident that a storm was brewing. The 15th Army Corps had formed on the right of the 17th, and about 11 o'clock a. m., had % ot into position. A strong skirmish line waa thrown forward, which drove the rebel skir mish line back. The enemy was In column of attack, and in torn drove our skirmish line At'12 o'clock m. the "fun grew" fast and furious, and continued without cessation for three and a half boars. For want of suitable position. I suppose, there was comparatively little artillery firing. The 15th maintained Its ground with a valor deserving of the highest praise. The enemy charged them five or six times, and were repulsed In every Instance. There is quite a common remark in camp, that Hood, if left alone, will butt his brains ont against our army, It's rather questionable whether he has'any brains, judging by hia mode of fighting. At a very moderate esti mate, be has not lost less than 20,000 men ainoe the 2Uth. What his loss has been to-day I have been unable to ascertain; but I am satisfied that it is very large. The loss of the 15th, who did the principal part of the fighfing, 1b not very heavy. Result ef Tuesday's Fight.
