Harper's Ferry in Possession

Threatened Invasion of Washington.
DISASTER AT VIENNA.
A BLUNDER OF TIIE REBELS.
W ABHIXCTON, Juns, 13.
By a blunder, the rebels failed to destroy
6<Jme fifty locomotives belonging to the Balti
more and Ohio Railroad Company. The loco
motives were at Martinsburgh. Gen. JOHNSTON
sent a force to Martinsburgh to bring down
the engines and destroy the bridges. The
Captain, in his zml, thought ho would make
a sure thing of it by burning the bridges as he
went tip, and was somewhat surprised to find
on his return that lie had cut off his return.
Five thousand troops came into Washington
to-day, and five thousand more will be in to
morrow. In addition to th"se, ten thousand
more OTO under orders to come to Washington
•ud will be here by Sonday night.
THE FIGHT AT F.DWARDS' FERRY.
Three hundred Federal troops, under Oapt.
GARDNER, of the Pennsylvania First Regiment

the rebels fled, having had fifteen to twenty
of theif number killed and wounded. One
private in Capt. GARDNER'S command was kill
ed, and three or four were wounded slightly.
The fight occurred from across tiie river. The
attack was made by the enemy, with a view of
taking possession of the Ferry. This news is

WASHINGTON, Saturday, June 23.
I see yon are puzzled to understand the
■ proposition of the rebel Government to buy
one half of the cotton crop. Let me tell you
what Mr. Ex-Secretary COBH expects to make
by his scheme, and how he expects to make it
The cotton obtained from the planters is to
be sent to one point, probably New Or'eans.
Mr. COBB then expects to say to England,
" We have gathered one half our crop at one
point ; you must raise the blockade and let it
out." if England's necessities are so great as
to impel her to such an act, COBB expects
then that the remainder of the "crop will be
seat forward through the same direction by the
planters, And thus the entire ci op will be sold
and the cash realized.
i Yoa ceo elaborate tbis idea - I kcow it is
the key of Cosa'a scheme. The prospect of
such a market induces the planter logive the
rebel Government one-half of his crop, while
concentration induces England to risk a war
with this country. This is the way in which
Cotton is expected to prove that it is King.
IMPORTANT EXPEDITION TO TEXAS. •
A naval expedition of much magnitude will
soon be fitted out to operate on the Coast of
Texas, it will consist cf transports, carrying

to-night, to replace a regimeut moved forward

BLOCKADING THE FORT OF CHARLESTON.
I think it has been resolved to blockade
Charleston harbor most effectually, and by the
same process which the rebels initiated. Ves
sels loaded with stone will be sunk across the en
trance of the port, so as to prevent the egress
or iugrcos of vessels.

INTENTIONS OF THE REBELS.
It is again talked among the old residents
Washington is to be attacked this week. The
re 1 els huve, I think, conceived the idea that
they can frighten Congressmen from the Cap
itul, and so prevent a session iff Washington ;
—and, indeed, some among them expect to
have Washington sacked by t he Fourth of July.
A wife of a former resident ot Wa-hmgton,
who is now a captain in the rebel ranks, as
sures me that there are one hundred and eighty
thousand rebels armed and in the field, and
that the genius of BEAUREGARD is eipuil to
concentrating that ma.-s of chivalry so as to
environ Washington within the next ten days.
I know she is in constant communication with
the rebels, and that she believes the danger of
Washington so imminent that she is in the
greatest distress for t Ire personal safety of some
friends who are yet loyal. I think she reflects
the opinion prevalent among the rank and file
of the rebel army, that Washington is within
their power ; and I think, too, that the rebel
leaders really contemplate a tremendous effort
to prevent the assembling of Congress.
The disposal of the Government forces in
dicates that the War Department are prepar

rebel forces. Our troop are being eoncen

The highest ascension was 45J feet. Several

DRUMMED OUT —On Monday evening of last

Thursday Morning, June 27, 1861.
An aggregate of over thirteen thousand
additional troops have readied Washington
within the past week, and these troops have
generally taken the place of those which have
been pushed' forward across the Potomac, to
swell tho grand army of invasion. Military
movements were quiet active on Saturday,
but the caution with which everything is now
done by the War Department precludes the
possibility of explaining their meaning. It is
rumored in Washington again, however, that
the rebel forces intend to innko an attack this
week. They have, it is asserted bv those who
are supposed to be in the secrets of tho ene
my, one hundred and eighty thousand men in
the field, and that they will soon make an
attempt to surround Washington, under the
directions of CEAonsocARD, is co spidered not
impossible. At any rate, the War Depart
ment seems to be preparing for such a possi
bility. Gen. MCDOWELL has made himself
fully acquainted with the position occupied by
the enemy, through the medium of a balloon,
in which were a telegraph operator and two
topographical engineers. This operation, it is
to he hoped, will prevent the recurrence of
any more such affairs ns that of Vienna, as
the exact localities of all the enemy's batter
ies, masked and otherwise, are now known.
The call of the Union men in Texas are not
to be disregarded, as will be seen by oir dis
patches this morning. A naval expedition of
great magnitude is soon to be fitted out to op
erate on that coast, consisting of transports
carrying munitions of war, and small vessds
of war with troops on board the latter to
take the field at some convenient point, as
the nucleus which the Union men can rally to
the support ot the Government. Another
coil in the ureal boa-constrictor !
Harper's Ferry is probably once more in
possession of the Government, and this with
out striking a blow. On Saturday, at noon,
the advance of Col. STONE'S column, which
has been operating on the Potomac, at Ed
ward's Ferry and Seneca reached Point of
Rocks, on the way to the Ferry, and one of
Gen. PATTERSON'S columns is reported to have
passed through Greencastle, in tiie same di
rection. This intelligence comes through Bal
timore. We have also a corroborative dis
patch from Hagerstown, which states that
the Sixth, the Fifteenth and Twenty-fourth
Pennsylvania Regiments had marched to take
possession of the Maryland Heights, looking
down upon the Ft rry. The position of Gen.
CADWALLADER'S command appears to be un
changed. Four Regiments are in camp about
a mile east of Williatnsport ; DOUBLED* Y'S Bat
tery is on the Williurasport Bluffs ; PKRK'N'S
Liirht Artillery Battery is between Hagers
town and William-port ; four regiments are
two miles from Williamsport, on the Green

a mile below Hagerstown, on the Fredrick

Post's Washington letter Fays : The hotels
ut - e full, and many members of Congress are
already here to prepare for the short but ex
ceedingly busy session which is at hand. The
Congressmen who hare arrived seem to be
pretty generally agreed upon two or three
pouts —the session shall be a short one
—that no subject shall be introduced tending
to divide the loyal men of the country —and
that everything the government has done shall
be most fully endorsed, and every necessary
provision for the future be made. Three
weeks will probably be the extent of the ses
ion, but the month of July may be consumed
particulury if any new treaties be proposed to
the Senate for a ratification.

for anybody. With the large crop and cor

GENERAL SCOTT IS wisely substituting light
artillery in the army for that of cavalry. He
is induced to do this, because it requires more
than a year to drill cavalry, to render the men
proficient us riders, to mike them perfect in
the various evolutions, and to accastorn the
horses to the shocks of battle, when gunpow
der has to be wasted. Light artillery will
make dreadful havoc among the knights ol
the Sonth, who, true to their instincts of aris
tocracy, array themselves in the most gorgeous
nttire, mount young and untrained horses, and
thus caparisoned and equipped, they expect
to intimidate the infantry troops by their splen
dor as well us glitter of their appearance. A
few round of grape, well directed and copious
ly given, will soon change the courage and
the course of their silly chevaliers.
