nnonading was heard at Frederick that evening, and that Gen. Wallace had repulsed every effort of the Confederates to take the town. A telegram from Sunday Book, dated the night of the 7th, says the bridge over the Shenandoah was in flames. Hunter is moving from Western Virginia, Couch is organizing the Pennsylvania militia, and Wallace is defending Frederick. Great excitement in Harrisburg — the New invasion — Stampede from Maryland. A special correspondent at Harrisburg, July 5, very great is pretty well indicated in the fact that, with all the forces of cavalry they are represented as having, Sigel escaped with but very few captures. It is hardly probable that more than one-third or one-half of the forces sent against Hunter, at Staunton and Lynchburg have advanced northward with this mythical "host." Sigel now has a sufficient force to help himself if he will. He holds Harper's Ferry, and there is little doubt but that his forces are able to keep the place aga

But a month ago Hunter was to come from the West, take Lynchburg, and cut us off in that direction. Butter was to come from the East and take Petersburg. Thus we were to be cut off from the South. Grant was to come from the North and shut up Lee in Richmond, and there his army was to be starved out. Nothing in the world was so easy as to take Richmond, demolish Lee's army, and crush the rebellion on paper; but when it came to be tried, this notable scheme failed entirely in the execution. Hunter has been driven off, Lynchburg has not been taker, Petersburg is safe, Grant has lost 150,000 men, and is in a position where he is likely to lose as many more, if he will stay till the first of October; Sheridan has been beaten within an inch of his life, Kantz a
