LOCAL ITEMS. ,
Ricamoso.—O° Wednesday last we
-.received a letter from Rev. T. V. Moore, dated
Richmond, June 29, 1864, and mailed at Bean
tosi`m, Md., on the 9th inst. It had - doubtless
been sent to garylaud by some one of the rebel
army of invasion. He writes mainly about our
Citizen prisoners from this place. He saw Dr.
liamilton and Mr. Culbertson on the 28th, and
re p o rts them well, and us comfortable as it is
possible to make them. The other prisoners
aro still at Salisbury. He has supplied our cit
izen prisoners with about 151,400 in rebel cur
- rency, and acknowledges the receipt of a Balti
more draft for $lOO we sent him through Gen.
-.Butler some Months ago. , sold it for $5OO,
and apologizes for the small sum received for it
`by saying that "the obstacles in the way of
blockade running" depreciated the value of the
draft. He gives renewed assuramir that he
will continue to supply the wants of our citizens
in; long as it is , in his power; wishes another re
mittance to he sent direct to Gen. Lee through
Gen. Butler, and sends his kind regards to "all

change of our prisoners, and we withhold its
anggestions—Laving forwarded them to the au

should be known that our government has
twice proposed to exchange rebel civilians for
these unfortimate men, but the rebel authori

TILE ASS-JLT ON WASHINGTON•
On Tuesday, the 12thinst., the rebels ap
peared in frontor Washington, on the Tennal
lytownrolid," some four miles North-west of the
city. The force consisted of:Earley.'s, Rhode's
and Grordoti's divisions of -infantry:and Ran
som's e,avalry—allcotnmanded be Gcm. Breck
inridge. Skirmishing had been going on during
Monday. but without material results.
ATTACK ON FORT STEVENS
Abourdavlight on Tuesday skirmishing again
commenced: the rebels - appeared M good
force on ..the left, between Fort Stevens, and
Fort De Hussey, in Widow Corberry's
The gunners In the Fort (13 31iiihigart
ry) threw a few shells in this direction, which
had the effect of driving them out, when they
(the rebels) worked around to the right, en
deavoring to get in between Fort Stevens and
Fort Sloedtn. Here the Ist Brigade '2d Divi
sion of the 9th Army Corps, General Wheaton,
were posted in skirmishing line. At first the
Federal's got the worst of it, bat finally the
rebels were driven back, out of a field'of low
undergrowth and bushes, frdm which they ter
ribly annoyed our troops. TWo prisoners were
captured, belonging' to the 21st and 12th Geor
gia regiments. They were dressed in grey
jackets and pants, and presented a terribly fil
thy appearance, as thougk - they had marched
many weary miles. Two other - prisoners had
previously been brought in, one belonging to
the 21st Virginia Cavalry and the other to the
46th - battalion Virginia Cavalry, of Gornion'-s
Corps. 'These prisoners had very little to say,
but seemed to take their capture with as much
nonchalance us possible.
Up to 11 o'clock the skirmishing was con
tinued, the 'rebels endeavoring to reach a livid
of low bushes on the right of the Seventh street
road. At one time they broke cover, and the
Federal troops could be seen rushing across
the road as though in pursuit. Soon a vigorous
banging took place. Several Federals were
seen to, fall on the road. Among them was
Col. 'Wier, of the 98th Pennsylvania, who
`was shot through the right thigh. The wound
is 'very painful, but not dangerous. All this
skirmishing took place within three hundred
yards of Fort Stevens.
TIiti.REBELS DRIVEN JACK.
. The charge upon the enemy in front of Fort
Stevens, on Tuesday night, was made by the
3d Brigade 2d Division or the (ith Corps. Col.
Biddle commanding. Our line was advanced
beyond Bluir's•house by this driving of the re
bels from their position. In this eliarg,; we
bad 300 killed and wounded, and the rebel loss
exceeded ours. The battery at Fort Stevens
was most admirable worked and did good exe
WHAT REBEL PRISONERS SAI
Captured rebel soldiers say that they were
informed on the march that Washington was
only guarded by clerks and militia, and there
fore it would be easily taken. They conlims
they were undeceived when they saw the heads
of columns of Peninsular veterans of 6th Corps.
The preservatiau of the mansion of Mr. Fran
cis P. Blair, is due to the interference of Gen.
Breekinridge, who Was no doubt influenced by
the friendly relations formerly existing between
himself and the eminent owner
The residence of the Hon. Montgomery Blair,
P. M. General was destroyed with an its con
tents, which act of Vandalism entails consider
able loss on the Post master General. F. P.

THE VETERANS PEItSUE THE REBELS
Towards six' o'clock the veterans from the
" Fighting Sixth" began to deploy. as skirmish
ers. and soon the rebels commenced falling bael;;
and they were driven from their position and
forced back-a - tuile and a half from the front, in
the vicinity of Silver Spring,the residence of Mr.
Blair, The rebels could not stand'their dash
ing, continuous tire. They knew them of old,
and they gave way, as they hare often done be

from Stevens and the adjoining forts; but they
were not returned.

GEN. TYLER NOT CAPTURED.
Gen. Tyler, the same who commanded our
126th in the nine months service, was separated
from his command at the Monocae y and narrow

The General was put in the custody of Cap.
tam Ch ens and two guards, who were charged
with his 'safe keiiiing. Excusing himself as sick 4
and weary he immediately laid down and feign=
ed sleep. Soon after the captain and his guards
luid down and he listened anxiously for indica
tions of sleep on their part.
He had not to wait long, before lie heard the
guard nearest to him commence to breathe
heavily, momentarily increasing the volume and
profundity until it became sufficiently loud to
wake any ordinary sleeper.
The Captain and his other guard bad also in
the meantime commenced to bicathe rather
heavy, and the General continued with his earn
open to feign sleep. He lay in this way for
some time until all, three gave unmistakable
signs of sleep. Fearing that they were playing
possum he got tip and walked carelessly and
moved:over to the fence, still watching them.
Ho then coughed loudly and made considerable
noise, thinking that they wanted an_excuse to
shout - at hint—each man lying with his right
haltd grasping the muzzle of his rifle.
The 'indications of profound steep being so
unmistakable on the part of all three of them,
he now, thought he would test the sincerity of
their slumbers by jumping the fence. This he
did, and on looking back could see no move
ment of the dusky forms of his guards, and off
he shot across several fields, jumping the fences
and keeping straight ahead in the - direction he
thought would take him toward the- city. 'He
ran for about three quarters of an hour, when
he entered a thick wood and in his weakly state,
being really broken down by fatigue, he sought
a place of concealment. He remained conceal=

still itept . to the woods, howo% er, and soon saw
two men moving towards him, carrying large
bundles of hay.
He walked up to them and asked them what
they were doing with bay in this wood,, when
due of them replied: "We have hid our horses
in the woods to keep ithem out of the hands
of the d—n rebels and we are going to feed
them.", This reply was a sufficient indication
of their sentiments and he immediately made
known to them the cirefonstances of his pres

RETREAT OF ItEBELS
The rebels have got away and the crossed
the Potomac in the following order:
3 taschY; at the head of six or seven hundred
of his cavalry, crossed into Virginia at house's
',Breckiaridge Crossed his command at
three places—Edwards' Ferry, White's Ford
and_Pnzut of Rocks.
About, 1,500 of the rebel cavalry crossed at
Walker's Ford, and some 2,000 of them in the
afternoon ' - of the 13th. The rebels had every
ford protected with artillery, and they - depar
ted to high glee. The head of their retreating
column moved towards Ashby's Gap.
Ori their retreat through the upper portion of
Montgomery county, the rebels made a clean
sweep of horses and cattle, and many of them
went so far as to steal the clothing of women
andchildrey and other personal effects, togeth
er with the contents of stores.
THE REHM FORCE
From conversations with fannera from Mont
gomery county, it appears that the fields Mr
several miles ere tilled with thernemy, and
that,those Who made the demonstration on our
iunnediate front were only the advance f f their
army. The intention was evidently to invade
Washington, but the continuous arrival of troops
in formidable numbers satisfied them that their
designrwas _not easily to be accomplished.—
There' is no doubt they were previously en-
Couraged to the adventure by many sympathizing
friends—those who took pains to point Out
Uniim men as especial victims of plunder.—
These secession-loving farmers were engaged
as agents in the robbery of their patriotic neigh
bors, who severely suffered by the treachery.
It see ins settled that the invading force consis
ted of from 20,000 to 25,000. a large portion Of
which was cavalry and mounted infantry. Sev
eral regiments 'of infitutry Were mounted on
stolen horses during their - inarch.
TILE: REISER, TAX ON FREDERICK.
'Frederick had bee❑ taxed $200,00.1 by the
rebeLs. The amount was raised with comma
five willingness by the citizens, who thus towed
a notch greater destruction of property. The
people of the town paint the scene of their visit
in vivid colors. The - streets of the whole town
were at one time crowded with the plunder of
stolen cattle, horses, and wagons full of booty.
ESCAPE 01' THE REBELS
It is not, probable that the-rebel roree can
be interrupted in their retreat, ns they have
such a large mounted force and have a - good
start. It is more than probable that they will
get off with their plunder.
OBJECT OF TIIE MOVEMENT.
The primary object of the invasion was doubt.
less to frighten Grant, to raise the - siege - of
Richmond to save Washington: but on that
they failed. They had a vague hope of elptnr
ing Washingtoo.by surprise ; but that thilod sig
nally and they have but their plunder for their
pains,, and it will not compensate them fur a
toilsome march of over MO miles. ft shows
the desperate straits to which the rebellion is
reduced, and now that Richmond ha nut been
relieved, we hope soon to see it occupied by
Gen. Grunt and his heroin army.
