M The news of to day from the scene of the rebel opera tions in Marylend Is moagre and indefinite. A deserter from the Elerenth ?irgtnla iBrecktaridge'a commend), brought here, etetae that tba whole foroe waa together at Bageritewn, and had ther# separated. He aettmaiee tbetr number at twelve tboueand, made up prtoclpally of the various email commands for seme time operating in Northern Virginia. He Utlnka no portion of Lee's army has been tout to oo operate. He also elate* the object of tna raid, as far as be waa able to loern, te bo tbe ?ecursmeut of bureee and provisions particularly, and la gessral to do all tbe damage and accmpliah an mucb an possible. He doee net think they will hatard' an attack upon our regular poets, unless invited to do so by their eitreme weeklies*. The aflair Is looked upon by him *e a raid brought about by the desperation end destitution of tbo rebel foroeu of Nortboru Virginia. However, this should not check the measures on foot for tbo deairuotlon of the enemy. Tbe eevelry supposed to beve been menacing Cham beribarg war* a few of Jenkins' and Imboden'e men en gaged in robbing the border Inhabitants. Tbey were not within sliteee miles of the town, ai d not mora than a ruor* are known te have crossed late Pennsylvania. Th* inhabitants that congregated in anticipation of of tooelv* military operations in tbe valley are commencing to return to tbetr homes. A later deapeieh, received a abort time since, elates that the rebel* passed through Frederick today, and are moving towards Baltimore. This lacks con I) r m a i loo, and li htaUU doubMqt BuuBoeiu. however, the mevcaecet to be cornet, there li do probability of eoooeoe In that direction. Oar reason for thinking so wo on not per Bitted to moke pablie, It beiag sufficient to know thot auoh ie the foot. Recruiting In thia 8Ute for the abort term of eervlce la going on briskly. There eilala o mlannderotondiiig be tween Govarnor Curtln and Mayor Henry In regard to the legitimacy or certain of the Qorernor'a acta In the present raising of men. Troops abould be furnished immediately, and controvert lee settled afterward. We are uncertain whether the force under Breckin ridge dees not indicate a deeper purpose on the part of the rebel commander at Richmond, and It is as well to he propared. The Wsshlagtoa Despatch. Waannraioa, July 9, 1191. The city has been filled with exciting rumor* to-day concerning the rebel Invasion, although very little defi nite information could be obtained. Heavy firing oould be distinctly beard on the heights, north of this elty, from tea this forenoon anttl Ave o'clock in the afternoon, In tho direction of Edwerda' ferry. No large force or rebels ere koewn te have op proaobed nearer then that p >?t, although a few eavalry were captured by our troops last evening a few north of Georgetown. Tho defeuees of the city are being Materially strength ened, end an adequate torse Is believed is bo on hand for nay emergency that may arise. In Fslrias rebel cavalry ie very active, end reported to be under the comtnaad of Mosby. This farce has several pieces of srtlilory, end day before yesterday, la a skirmish with a detachment of our eavalry, killed a number and took several prisoners.
