Rebel Combinations in Maryland.
SANDY Ham, August 1
No important movements have been made
yet. An additional force has been sent up the
river to guard the ford at Harper's Ferry.
Scouting parties out on Tuesday night reported
considerable bodies of rebel foragers within six
miles of the Ferry, which gives rise-to a suspi
cion that a much larger body is nearer us than
Leesburg. Some think that Gen. Jonston's
army is on the move northward.
Three brigades of the Shenandoah column
have already been formed. The fast is to be
commanded by Col. aeo. H. Thomas, the sec
ond by Col. J. J. Abercrombie, and the third
by Col. Chas. J. Stone.
The Massachusett's Thirtieth regiment is at
Hagerstown and is expected here to-night. The
Fifth Connecticut arrived this morning.
Scouts frequently bring in evidences of seces
sion combinations in this section of Maryland,
as well as frequent communications with the
rebels in - Virginia. Stringent measures have been
instituted to stop such correspondence, if it
really exists; also to break up the organization.
Nothing is positively known outside of the staff
of the enemy's movements.
LATER-OFFICIAL DISPATCH FROM GEN
WASHINGTON, August 1.-10 P. M.
The War Department has received the fol
lowing, direct from Gen. Rosencrans, by tele
graph dated to-day
"Gen. Cox reached Ganley bridge on the
29th ult. Geri. Wise fled without fight
ing, destroying the bridge to prevent pur
suit. We have captured a thousand mus
kets and several kegs of cannon powder.
Many inhabitants of that section who have
heretofore been strong secessionists, denounce
General Wise for his wanton destruction of
property, and are abandoning him and his
cause. His western troops arc rapidly disband
ing. The Valley of the Kanawha is now free
from the rebel forces."
X XXVIIth Oongress--Extra Susi o n
WASHIAGTOH, August I
'SENATE. -Mr. Genus, (lowa,) gave notice
that he should introduce a bill declaring un
constitutional the act making a retrocession of
a part of the District of Columbia to the State
On motion of Mr. WrisoN, (Mass.) from the
Committee on Military Affairs, the bill for the
organization of the volunteer militia was post
poned to the first Monday in December next.
Mr. Wrifiox introduced a bill making appro
priations towards making fortifications. The
bid provides $lOO,OOO for the purpose, andalso
prohibits flogging in the army. Passed.
The bill to promote the efficiency of the vol
unteer forces of the United States was taken
up and passed.
Mr. 1 - 1 . ATP, (N. H.) offered a joint resolution
I authorizing the examination, by a board of
naval officers, of the James projectile for riled
cannon. Referred to the Committee on Naval
Mr. ChANTLER, Ofichigan o ). from the Com
mittee on Commerce, reported a bill reducing
the consular fees on vessels running to or be
tween foreign porta. Passed.
The bill to punish fraud on the part of offi
cers making contracts for the government, re
turned from the House with amendments, was
Mr. WrisoN moved a recosideration of the
vote by which the former amendments of the
House were agreed to. He said that he thought
the bill was calculated to do injury to the gov
ernment, to hamper its operations.
After some discussion the motion was with
drawn, and the bill passed.
Mr. Wascer, (Mass.,) made a report from the
Committee of Commerce on the bill for the
better organization of the army. Passed.
The Committee of Conference, on the loan
bill, made a report which was agreed to, and
the bill passed.
The bill for the suppression of insurrections
was taken up, and a long discussion ensued on
a motion to postpone till the next session,
Mr. Bascmsienz, (Ky.,) said he should vote
for a postponement. He was glad to see the
Senate at last pause before a single bill. He
wished this bill was published in every newspa
per in the country, believiog that it would meet
with universal condemnation. He thought the
tendency of this bill was to abolish all State
government and destroy the last vestige of po
litical and personal liberty.
Mr. TRIMORILL (1il.) contended that some bill
of this kind was necessary from the exigencies
of the times. The Constitution was in danger.
We have voted men and money to carry on the
war to save the Constitution, and how can, we
ustify ourselves without maturing a bill so
much needed? If we postpone the bill we will
allow the Constitution to be violated everyday,
and leave the military to do as they please,
Mr. BRECKUVRIDOZ said the dance was begin
ning to open. The Senators who urged this
war have commenced to quarrel among them
selves. The Senate has already passed a gener
al confiscation bill, and also a general emanci
pation bill. The Police Commissioners of
Baltimore have been arrested without any law
and carried off to an unknown place, and
he President refuses to tell
House what they were arrested for ;
and what has been done with them; yet
you call this liberty and law. The Senator
rom Illinois (Mr. Baommici) had said that he
(Bascrgautnas,) had assailed the Pre3iient with
severity if not malignity. In the midst of these
events he could not cherish personal animosity,
and towards the President he never entertained
such a spirit. On the contrary he thought
more highly of him than did many of his coun
sellors. lie believed him to be an honest man,
tramping the constitution under foot with good
motives, but from evil counsels.
Mr. BELEM:MIDGE said the President had no
authority to declare a State in insurrection
EU. 'imam contended that the President had
he right to declare a diStrict in insurrection,
whether it composed a State or two States.
When the civil power is overthrown, the Presi
dent must call on the military to preserve the
government. The only thing the President
can do is to advance armies and put down re
bellion. The Senator from Kentucky stands
up bravely to speak sentiments which he holds,
but what are they but comfort and spirit to the
enemy ? What are they but brilliant words,
polished treason, in the very capitol ? Would
the Senator have us yield to menaces ? There
was nothing left for us but to go forward.
What would have been thought of a Roman ,
Senator who declared for peace when Carthage
was advancing on Rome ? A Senator near me
says he would have been hurled from the Tar
pean rock. The north and east will never fal
ter but give all its blood and treasure to sup
port the government. He foretold a brilliant
future for the republic. After further discus
sion the Senate went into executive session and
House.—Mr. SEDGW/Clt, (N. Y.,) from the
Committee on Naval Affairs, reported a bill au
thorizing additional enlistments in the Navy
for three years or during the war, so as to place
it in complete efficiency for active service.
Mr. Swum, (Pa.,) from the Committee on
Ways and Means, reported a bill, which was
passed, appropriating $lOO,OOO for field fortifi
cations for the defence of Washington.
Mr. &mum, from the Committee of Confer
ence on the supplemental loan bill, made a re
port explaining that the disagreements of the
two Houses have been compromised by striking
out 9 per centnm, in certain uses, and substi
tuting 6 per centum.
Also, modifying the Sub Treasury act, so that
instead of gold and silver being immediately
paid into the Treasury as now required, the
money derived from the loan may remain in
solvent banks until it shall be drawn out, in
pursuance of law.
Mr. F. A. Coxsznio, (N. Y.) inquired wheth
er the Committee retained the duties from tea,
coffee, sugar, etc., as a pledge for the loan.
Mr. STEVENS said the Senate would not con
sent to that, and rather than lose the bill, the
House Committee agreed to abandon that
The report was then adopted by a vote of 83
Mr. &mon, (Mass.,) from the Committee on
Commerce, reported a bill to suspend in part
the operation of the act of March, 1845, re-
Ltting to revenue cutters and steamers, so as to
allow the Secretary of the Treasury to apply so
much of the appropriation for the collection of
the revenue to the charter or purchase of ves
sels for revenue service, as may be necessary,
as it passed the Senate.
The bill authorizing the appointment of Aid
de Camps, in addition to these now allowed by
law, by the President, on the recommendation
either of the Lieutenant General or of Major
Generals, was passed,
The Smuts& appointed as a committee on the
part of the House, to examine and report as to
the compensation of ail officers of the govern
ment, with a- view to retrenchment, Messrs.
Morrill, (Vt.,) Olin and Allen.
Mr. Basra, (M 0.,) rising to a personal explana
tion, read some remarks of Thurlow Weed
against him and his brother, the Postmaster
General, derogatory to their connection with
the war. As tothe latter, that gentleman could
take care of himself ; although differing from
Gen. Scott with reference to the conduct of the
war, their personal relations were of the kind
Mr. Bram referred to Mr. Richardson's repe
tition of the conversation between Gen. Scott
and the President, relative to the late battle,
and involving the responsibility of the fight.
Mr. R/CJEURDSOH did not think his language
had been fairly construed, if it was supposed he
had said or intimated that Gen. Scott implied
that the President had forced him into the
movement. Mr. Blair alluded to this matter
for a double purpose. He understood that Gen.
Scott did, in that conversation, exonerate the
President from having any part in forcing him
into the battle.
Mr. Ricuaansort repeated that he did not un
derstand Oen. Scott as implying that the Presi
dent forced him to fight that battle.

Mr Br+ra replied that the President should
retain the confidence of the people of the coun
try, but this he could not do so long as it is
held out that the President forced Gen Scott
to fight the battle against his will; but as the
President , did not take the responsibility of
forcing a battle before the troops were ready, he
will still retain, as he deserves, the confidence
of the people.
Mr. RICHARDSON, in further explanation, said
it was the other day no part of his purpose to
make any assault on the President..
Mr. BLAIR reminded the gentleman that he
said Lincoln was an honest man if let alone,
but that the President was surrounded by wily
politicians, against whom he (Richardson,)
feared the President had not the courage or the
will to stand.
Mr. RICHARDSON replied that his remarks on
that occasion were not as well expressed as they
ought to have been. If this meaning was un
derstood bemuse his language was unhappy, he
regretted it. The House adjourned.

the following :

PRINCE NAPOLEON IN PHILADELPHIA.

Prince Napoleon and five members of his

ten o'clock last evening, and took rooms at the

abroad at a late hour, but the quiet manner in
which the party made their movements pre

party rested last evening, and to-day are visit

their future movements beyond the fact, that
they will leave for Washington city to-mor
