Division this iiiorniug shortly after H o'clock, at
Darksville, on tho Winchester pike, south of Mar
tinsbiirr;, with Johnson's, McCausland's, and
Yuuglian's Urigadcs of cavalry, and Rhode's Di
vision of inlttutry, Lieutenant-General Early
conducting the attack in person.
The enemy's cavalry was thoroughly beaten
and driven, in three successive charges hndcr an
artillery fire upon and through the infantry lines.
The Rebel infantry was then brought forward to
the attack, whereupon the brigude (Schoouma
ker's) retired, after having nearly expended thir
ammunition, slowly beforo the enemy's advance.
The Rebel Infantry being unable to reach the
Union cavalry, the enemy's mounted force was
again brought forward, but did not venture to
attack Scboonuiaker In Ihe new position which
be immediately assumed.
The action of the l.'nion cavalry was regarded
by experienced ollleers who witnessed it as being
one of the most gallant defensive battles of the
campaign. This noble cavalry again evinced Its
high discipline nndcr very trying circumstances-
From tho prisoners taken we get information of
the highest importance. The loss indicted upon
the enemy was greater than our own. Karly
thought to steul a march on Sheridan's lines, and
did not expect to he, as he was, checked iu the
outset of his operations by Averili's activity.
Much inlormatioii in regard lo the movements
of the day is withheld from the public for the

Tin Ki'Incoval Convention. Wo have re
ceived the proceedings of the lust Convention of
the I'rotestant Episcopal Church of tho Diocese
of Pennsylvania, forming a handsomely printed
volume, from the press of Messrs. Kini & IUird.
The minutes of the Convention, and the temporal
and spiritual condition of tho Church, arc clearly
presented In its admirably arranged pages, which
arc made attractive to the eye by the exquisite
beauty of its typography.
The Episcopal Church of this diocese h is won
new reverence und ullcciion from all denomina
tions of Christians by tho bold and outspoken
stand taken by her clergy, with the vcneraMc uud

political arena, and allowed his nume and calling
to l.e mingled amid the fumes and ribaldry of In.'
moms with the defense of tho sluvc-block. und iti

l'ntED at and Shot. About 9 o'clock on Satur
day night, Michael rurrcll, John Kane', und
James Kennedy, three sailors on board the United
states Btcumcr Bermuda, lying off the Navy Yard,
made an attempt to dcBort, which neatly cost
them their lives. They stole the row-boat attachod
to the vessel, lowered it Into the water and started
off. They wore noticed by the guard, who hailed
them, hut not paying any attentiou they wore
fired ut. Tho firing attracted tho attention of the
Iloccivin(ir Ships l'rinreton and M'yomiiuj. Tho
guards were summoned on deck, and about fifty
vollcvs bred into the bout. Tho threo men each
rc( tlied a wound one of them in the head, one
in the shoulder, and one in Ihe leg. The wounds,
although serious, will not provo latal. Notwith
standing that tho men were wounded, they still
continued to push for the shore, and would have
escaped, but (or thctiiucly arrival of Police-birge
No. 2, under otllccr Orimes, who put after the
boat, und succeeded in securing the three men
and landing them mfely on botrd the Hermuda.
It is but just to state, that the River and 11 arbor
Police, under the command of Lieutenant Kdgar,
have stopped more naval desertions at this port,
than the authorities themselves.
1'alkk lit -non. Wc are requested to state that
the sick and wounded negro troops which arrived
In the city from the front a few days since, wore
expeditiously ci nveyesT In the ambulances of the
fin men to the Summit House, to which they
were assigned by the Medical Director, Dr. Ken
dcidlne. This sta'ciuent is made because of
rumors circulated in the city that the Firemen
refused the use of their ambulunces fir the
puriOse referred to, and that the colored troops
were kept In waiting some time before they were
removed to the hospitals. Uu ull occasions our
firemen have been prompt and cnergeticln meet
ing the demands made upon them by our sick
ami wounded soldiers, and in no case has a dis
tinction been made lieciu-eof the color of those
soldieis dependent upon their humane a .is.

An tiiFNT Owen Hughes, cf tho Twenty-
Tim Vkiom Mir.Tim in Istni !-i.NnnNc
National t'nion UntlnYatlon meeting held In In
dependence Square on Saturday evening, was
Indeed a demonstration worthy of a loyal people.
The Committee Issued the call only four days
before the demonstration, and, considering the
short notice, the ouipoiuiiig of the loyal people
may be considered a spontaneous response to the
call of the country.
There woa no lime lo prepare the arrangements
for a grand procession, 110 time to arrange new
banner with sulking mottoes, Indicating the
spirit-silirlug scene. In which we live; conse
quently Ihe old Wide-Awake torches of 18 ill were
bri nglit in'o requisition, and banners or trans
parencies that had feen service on many o,-ca-hi
ns were in the line. The ward processions
came singly, and, with few exceptions, entered
the Square tbrousb the south gateway, until the
enclosure would hold no more. Tho first asso
ciation that appeared on the ground was that of
the Twenty-fourth Ward, ll was 9 o'clock when
this procession entered the Square.
At this ptriod the dillercnt Ward associations
were on the near approach to the grand centre of
demonstration, and, timid the blazing of pyrin
suns, rockets, Itoman candles, and cheers of
thousands, the mighty eddying (lowing on of
Ihe great human lido, with banners and music,
soon tilled Ihe square to overtiowing. The scene
at this time was grand beyond description. Red,
white, and blue tires shot up through the stutelr
111111 in the square, and Hags and handkerchiefs
were waved from the windows of surrounding
dwellings. Everybody sec Died to be in Ihe most
excellent hnmor.
From the general expression that fell from the
lips of many in all parts of the mooting, every
Tiody must liave been surprised at the vast extent
of the number. Fnthuslasm is what tells In a
popular meeting. The present demonstration stir
patscd in this essential any that ever preceded it.
Two stands were erected from widen speeches
wore delivered by Hon. Simon Cameron, Hon.
John Cessna, Hon. Charles O'Neill, Hon. Leonard

Dr. Wulters was tried this morning on a charge
ol B'siiull and battery, preferred by Mr. F.iseu
boru. The charge of assault and battery consisted
iu a collision between the carriages of the prose
cuior und defendant, on the lid of July, by which
that of tho foinicr was broken down, causing tho
horse to run away. No serious injury was sus
tained by uny of the occupants, one of whom was
a lady, and it appearing from tbo evidence that
the collision was the result of accident, the jury
rendered a verdict of not guilty.
Isaac Fox was then placed on trial nnder an
indictment charging the keeping of a disorderly
house on Islington lane, near Camp Cadwalader.
The evidence was quite conllictiug as to there
being such disorder there as to disturb the neigh
bors. - The landlord of the ground upon which
Ihe shanty stands testified that he had rented the
ground to Mr. F'ox to erect a stand for the sale of
watermelons, Ac, and not for the sale of liquor
to vulgar men and women, such as he was doing,
to the gnat scandal of the families In the vicinity.

The New York Timet this morning says :
"The trade of the past week was but mode
rately active in fotclun and domestic tuerchan
diae from store. The import entriee of the
former is nearly four millions in value, but we
notice that the bulk of the fresh dry goods entries
passed into bonded warehouse. The fluctuation
in gold and violent decline near the close of the
week unsettled the Corn Exchange, besides add
ing to the tainencss of the general merchandise
trade, liut the export clearances of produce art)
nevertheless kept up on a liberal scale." ;
The Chicago Tribune thus foreshadows the
stringency in money, and decline in prices of
produce :
"The money market continues close, bat at
prcKi lit all lcgitimaie calls are met by bankers a&
the regular rate. Our leading banking-houses,
however, anticipate a severe stringency in tha
murket, as soon as the packing season shall com
mence, which will be iu a few weeks. A close
invest iKHtion shows that from 7,000,000 Ut
frt( w,oti0 are now invented on speculation la
w bixky in this city, scarcely any of which wilt,
l e available for other uses bofure the first or mid
die of 1-eliruary, about the time packing season
clweH. There in also a large amount invested iu
the same manner in wool, which will be unavail
able fur Ihe uses of packers. The combined
amounts will hardly lull short of 9 lO.OJO.O Hi
thus withdrawn from use when most needed. In
what way this vacuum is to be tilled is what now
puzzles business circles."
