Oooeral Wallace la falling back toward* the olty. tto telegraph, however, la still working to Marriotts vflte, which la beyond Silicon's Mills; so that the report Of the rebels being there la premature. Their scouts, however, are believed to have been within flfteeo miles M the city. We are atlll not without good hope of being able to pre* VHt the eatranoe of the rebels la to this olty. The aeoeos too lata who have property and stocks of i on band here are by no means pleased at the ptos is! of exchanging their goods for rebel money.

We rebel cavalry are reported to be at Retateratown, miles north of Baltimore, and are supposed to be for the Northern Central Railroad, to endeavor to A our communication In that direct loo. A train which started out on the Baltimore and Ohio has returned with a number of wounded en There la much excitement here, resulting from the de feat of Wallace and the reported approach of Eweit'a ?srpa and two dtvMoas of Hlll'a oorpe, acme of them by way of Ooekeyavllle, on the Northern Central Railroad. Meagre! Lock wood la making svsry preparation for n vigorous defence. Our streets are swarming with peopla.

The latest reports from Wallace sxprosa the opinion that toe malu body of tho rebels are making towards Washington. II la reported that llangr Gllraor's cavalry were at Westmlnater laat night. Be la said to bare taken bla supper tbere whilst bla men were employed etc allay horses, ho. BaLTiMoas, July 10?1 P. M. An ambulance bas Just arrived here with wounded officers. Captain Adam klkln, Acting Adjutant General of General Rtckatt'a staff, and Captain Payne, One Hun dred and Sixth New York (the former badly woandad, and the latter severely |in the hip), are among tba number. The fighting In repreeented as baying been of tba moat desperate character. The new recruits did wstl. Our veteran troops engaged especially distinguished themselves end fought with desperate determination, only giving way when they were outflanked by superior numbers. Theeoemy were severely punished, having a larga lumber of killed and wounded. Alexander's Baltimore battery Is reported to have done greet execution with grape, canister end shell. The enemy were, however, far better supplied with artillery and cavalry, and outnumbered oar forooi two to one. It ie thought that the reason the enemy here not thns far appeared following In our rear la because of tbeir having been so severely punished and have eo many wounded on their bande. The rebel cavalry that passed through Westminster end Reisterstown last nlgbt are reported to have burned the Union bridge, on the Western Maryland Railroad. A party of cavalry passed through Cockeysville this morning, making, as was supposed, for the Philadelphia Railroad, at some point east of Baltimore, In expectation of being able to out off our communications In tbet di rection; but precautionary measures have been taken which U la hoped will guard against such a disaster. Bslthsoki, July 10?5 P. M. The Northern Central Railroad has been cut near Cook eysvllls, and a bridge is reported now burning?supposed to be the bridge at the Ashland Works. A rebel eavalry force, estimated at fifteen hundred strong?probably exaggerated?crossed the Northern Central Railroad, above Cockeysville, this forenoon, and are going towards tbe Philadelphia Railroad. They ex pected to reach there before night and cut that road or destroy one of the bridges; but It Is hoped that the force now guarding the road In that direction will be streng enough to drive the raiders off. Tbere ere many wild rumors agatn afloat this after noon; but the confidence In the ability of our forcea to hold tbe city ie gaining nod tbare la less excitement. Among the rumors Just started is that a portion of the rebel fores which engaged Gen. Wallace yesterday have atruck tbe Washington road Bear lAurel Factory , but this, I think, la ineerreoi. At all events the telegraph llns to Washington la as yet uninterrupted, aud It la be lieved our troops are In such a position by this time to effectually protaot our communications with Washington. As a matter of precaution the valuables, reoorda, Ac., of oar banks and other Institutions have been plaoed on board a steamer in the harbor fbr safety. Bxumoaa, July 10?C P. X. General Slgel'a wagon train arrived here to-day In charge of a larga detachment of Infantry and eavalry. One of tbe officers who was in'the fight says that In all his experience In this war he haa never seen morn des perate flgbting, and ha thinks the rebel loss fully as great as ours. Alexander's battery Is all safe. Our loss In prisoners is about one thousand. There his been no esti mate yet of tbe killed and wounded. Bxltmov, July 10?7 P. M. It Is reported that the advance of a rebel cavalry force Is within seven miles of the city, on the York road. Bsltwou, July 10?Evening. The reports from the line of the Northern Central Rail road are somswbat ooafuaad end probably exaggerated. The enemy are reported to hove (truck tbe rood first at Oeckeyevllle and Texas, where they tore up the track. They also burned tbe bridges at Ashland, and, a report ?ays, tba Ashland Iron Works, n very sxtenstvs astab llshmeot Tbs bridge at Gunpowder creek la also burned; aa Is also tbe bridge at Hanover Junction. Tbe trains and en gines wars all sent down tho load, and It is believed that all have thus far escaped. Tbe report seems to be well founded that a portion of this force was within seven miles of thli city this even ing, on the York road; bat It is not believed that they will attempt to enter the elty, nor that they are by any mesne in sufficient force to do eo should they feel dis posed to make the effort. As the hours pass by, snd each of the many appreben* ?ions proves to be unfounded, the confidence of ear cltl sens becomes more firmly established, and nt tbla pre sent writing very iUUe apprehension Is entertained for tbe safety of this city. It ia believed that tba foroe wblcb was moving In the direction of tbe Philadelphia Railroad baa retreated. It eertslnly has not yet struck thai road; and If the rebels venture Dear either of tbe bridges on tbla aide of tbe Susquehanna they will catch a Tartar, such la known to be the nature of the defences adopted.

They bar* at least bean baited In their mad onreer, and tbe vengeance they have so excited will shortly be meted out to them. Tbe President waa not uamlnsrul of the ordeal the people wore passing through, and be thoughtfully sent a message to be of good cheer, as tbe government were making preparation* to give the rebels a cordial re ception.

Those works, however, are ao protected as to prevent any damage being done them. None of the bridges can be destroyed without an attack by the entire force, ujusr wor disti rbbd bt the said. The Congressional Committee, wbtcb baa Just returned from Ctty Point, reports everything there to be In a moat satisfactory condition, General .Grant aotorteining no tear as to results in thia quarter.

Nothing has been beard of the enemy in Fairfax aire* yeaterday, our cavalry coming In to-day from Lceabnrg without seeing any rebels. A few guerilla* are reported to be prowling about Fairfax station; but no further annoyance has been given our lines or the people In the vicinity. Many or the loyal residents remain upon their farms without molestation. The General Press Despatches. Washington, July 10, 1804. The reports which have been received elate that up to this forenoon the rebels had made no movement In dicative of the purpose of following General Wallace In the direction of Baltimore. Information has reached here that a satisfactory body of our veterans are already In a position from which they een reach either Washington or Baltimore before the rebels can appear in force In front of either city. The very large brigade of men employed In the Quarter master's Department here and In this vicinity mustered this morning at their rendezvous, and will meat for drill this afternoon. Tbey are ready for instant service if It is necessary to call tbem out. A despatch received at headquarters at a late hour last night from Edward's Ferry slatss that the rebels have not crossed tbar* as reported, neither have tbey mads their appearance In the vicinity.

Although there M naturally much solicitude every where felt for the safety of Washington, In view of the Intelligence which has from time to time boon reoelved to-day, and which baa caused come excitement In our community, otill there are no indications whatever of a panic among onr citizens. The military measures which have been taken tend to give aeauronce of the aecurtty of this capital from rebel Invasion. It Is coofldsntly asserted that several rebel scouts have been seen la Washington today: bnt this maybe mere suspicion. A rebel scout war, however, captured to-day not far from Washington, and has been brought bitber. The mail carrier who runs between this place and Rockvllle, about fourteen miles distant, hastily returned from Rockville this afternoon, bringing a report that re bel troops ere tn that Immediate neighborhood. He says ho saw them but bad no Idea of tbelr numbers. CHAMBERSBURG. Mr. Prmsiete C. Loapi D*ip*ickH> Chasbkhsihro, Pa., July 8?Evening. The rebel invasion of Maryland baa caused the greatest consternation among the inhabitants of the Cumberland ?alley, and people are leaving for Cbtmbersbnrg, Carlisle and Harrlabarg la considerable numbers, no one of which places Is considered a very secure retreat at present. The first force of tbe rebels that entered Ragerstown, It is reported, took from tbe citizens valoe to tbe amount of twenty thousand dollars. at rnsruiFnsTow* a squad went to a livery stable and commanded tbe keeper to lead out bis borsea, a portion of which, It Is said, be bad removed from tbe stables.

Quite it number.of buildings had been laid in ashes, Including not only public but private property. The rebels were, if anything, more severe upon the seces slenists than upon the Unionists, raising contributions everywhere. McCaueUnd's rebel brigade, In oonse quence of this movement or General Ceucb, retired n confusion along the Wiliiamspart and Sharyebiirg roads. Heavy firing was beard bere laet night In the di rection of Harper a Ferry, Indicating that a brisk engage ment was golug on between Skgel's forces and a portion of the rebel raiders, The impression prevails that Sigel pas whipped them, because there was no other Union forces In the direction of Harper's Perry, and the sound of cannonading was northwestward, growing In volume and loudness towards Falling Waters and Willlamsport. The rebels would not have retreated in tbe direction of these places unless driven under a severe fire. HABBlbBUllG. Address of Governor Cartnln to tit* People ot Penney! vsnia.

I refer to my recont proclnnation* calling for troops on requisition of tho President. You are not responding fioely. Tbe enemies of oar government are active In de terring you, and efforts have been made to dissuade yeu from the belief that any considerable rebel loroe is in your vicinity, and many of our most loyal and patriotic citizens have been thus deceived. Similar efforts were too snocesafully made last year at tbe momeat when Lee's army wus actually on your borders. Despatches have been this morning received establishing tbe ract that Genoral Wallace, with ten thousand men, was yesterday com pelled to fall back from Frederick. Ho Is believed to be in retreat towards Raltlmore. Tbe communication be tween this point and Baltimore was cut this morniDg by the rebels below Cockeysvlile. Tbe eutborltlea or tbe United States at Washington are so Impressed with tbe necessity o f immediate effort that tboy have this morn ing, by telegraph, authorized men to be mustered Is by companies, which they bad yesterday peremptorily re fused. It Is my duty to state to you the faot tbat your coun try requires your immediate service, and tbe safety of your own soil and of our good neighbors In Maryland may depend on your promptness. Recollect tbat tbe mode of enllstiag men is at tbe discretion of the government, and It is tbe duty of all to obey its requi-itlons. It would be disgraceful in you to waste time lu objecting to matters of form and detail, or to profess tbat you would go If called In some dlffereot way. Thoee'who want an excuso for skulking may do so; but all who desire to do their duty to tbelr country will acorn such subterfuges. Turn, therefore, a deal ear to all misohlevous suggestions from any quarter. Do not lend yourself to a betrayal of yoar country. Corns for ward like men to aid bor. The rebel forces will be easily defeated and driven awity if yon do your duty. And I pray God ao to enlighten you that tbe honor of tbe Com monwealth may be maintained. A. G. CURTIN, Governor.

THE BATTLE OF MOIVOCACY. Mr. H. Davidson''a Despatch. Baltimore, July 10, 19M. General Wallace had a most desperate fight at Mono, cacy yesterday. It oceans that a heavy force or Infantry appeared la bis front at the junction about noon, and engaged his ad. vanoe with determined vigor.

There Is no doubt that the rorce engaged by (ioueral Wallace yesterday was commanded by Early, and thai his entire anrps was present to the number of not leas than twenty thousand. The battle fought had this result. If no other, that It compalled tho enemy to dovelope his strength, and gave us Information In that respect vitally Important. The elty Is now entirely qnlet, and the streets are al most deserted, except by the armed guards and po lice. We have no further reports aa to the movements of tbe enemy's cavalry; but It la believed tbat they are depredating along tbe lino of the North ern Central Railroad, and moot likely moving off toward their mala body, which appears to bo ooooentratlog in Montgomery.

TBI CA06M OF BX-SEUBBTAKY CHARB's DI8FLAGK MBNT. Washington circles havo been much entertained lately by the perusal or newspaper aeoounts purporting to givw the reasons for tbe withdrawal of Mr. C'hase irom tbo charge of the financial concerns or the nntlon. Tho TVibtine'i whimpering explanations reoelvad aa among the moat amusing of all, and yet It contains a grain of truth by the assertion, In effect, that Lincoln snubbed Chase sod refused htm an Interview on the sublet of the appointment oT Mr. Maunsel B. Field as his successor to tbe Treasury Department. It Is well known here thai the relations between the President and Mr. Chase havo not been of the moat amicable character alnca the Poms roy develop moots; and, with the usual cunning of thn Western politician. Old Abo undertook to outwit his finast ctnl manager, and ho baa aucoaedad.

Bat there was no help for U. Old Abe bed put bis broad loot down, and a now man for tho Treasury was proposed, and o new man waa found In tbo person of Mr. Fessenden. It wss a regular coup d'etat? the first striking and only decisive end resolute aetloo tbe President has taken m regard to tho members of bis Cabinet since hte Inauguration. If Mr. Cbaao bod eon fined himself to bis legitimate duty of sustaining tho national orodit by tho introduction of wise and prudential financial measures, Instead of embroiling hHnsolf la schemes of personal ambit loo, neither himself nor pos terity would hove had tho mortification of lamenting tbo sad spectacle of tbo retirement ef tbo financial chief of : tho nation wben tbo notion waa In tho throes of a lorribio and profoundly critical rev u la ion.
