. When the insurgents recovered from the panic produced by that dash, which made them flee sixteen miles without halting, and found that Wallace had fallen back to Cumberland, they took heart, advanced to Romney, four thousand strong, under Colonel McDonald-infantry, cavalry, and artillery — and, pushing on to New Creek, destroyed the bridge of the Baltimore and Ohio Railway at that place. Then they passed on to Piedmont, five miles farther westward, where they cut the telegraph-wires, and desnged front, and prepared for battle. Believing that when the insurgents should enter Cumberland they would scatter in search of plunder, he prepared to rush in, attack them in the streets, and defeat them in detail. When the insurgents under McDonald reached Frostburg, only six miles from Cumberland, they were informed of Wallace's bold stand, and ventured no farther, but remained at that place until evening, when they turned southward and hastened to Romney. Wallace returned to Cumberland,

ame into camp this afternoon, ready again to enter upon duty. The seizure of "Flora Temple." The New York Herald, of Friday last, has the following in relation to the seizure of the racing mare, Flora Temple, though the statement that Mr. McDonald is an officer in the Confederate army is untrue: The racing mare Flora Temple — well known in this and other cities for her speed and the many matches that she has made — was seized by Deputy Marshals Hunt and McCoy, on account of a libel filed against Flora by Mr. Ethan Allen, Assistant United States District Attorney, she being the property of Mr. Wm. McDonald, of Baltimore, at the present time an officer in the Southern army. This, under the late act, will render the mare the property of the United States, and unless something extraordinary occurs, she will be sold for the benefit of the Government. The race between Flora Temple and Ethan Allen was not interfered with by the Marshals, such being the orders they received;
ection they have proclaimed as a part of their mission to the border. But the enterprize failed, and the philanthropic protectors "vamoosed the ranche." During the fight, the leaden messengers of death flew into town in a perfect hailstorm style. Many houses and trees bear marked ev- idence of the fierceness of the skirmish.--The "scene" presented among the inhabitants beggars all description. Before the commencement of hostilities a courier was speedily dispatched to Colonel McDonald's encampment, at Duffield's Depot, five miles from this place, for reinforcements, and about twilight Lieut. Col. Ashby, at the head of some two hundred mounted men, appeared in town; not, however, until after the "varmints" were chased back to Maryland. Our men immediately proceeded to the river's fordings and stayed all night. It is to be hoped that they will now remain near the scene of danger and afford us that sense of security and protection we are justly entitled to. Skirmi

Johnson was committed to jail for being drunk and disorderly in the streets. Wm. Forrester was fined $15, and required to give surety for his future good behavior, for selling ardent spirits to be drunk at his house where sold, without first having obtained a license to do so. Wm. McDonald, who appeared to have assisted the officers rather than obstructed them in the suppression of the riot of Friday, on 17th street, was discharged. Thompson and Sears were committed for being drunk and disorderly. Napoleon B. Devinney and a Mr. Crew, were brought up because it is not safe to allow them to go at large, they being not of sound mind. His Honor will dispose of them humanely.

th inst., publishes the following from its special Washington telegraphic correspondent, dated December 3d: This morning General McCall sent to the headquarters of General Porter, Provost Marshal, two deserters from the rebel army, named Wm. McDonald and John Worsdall. The first is an English boy, twenty years old; the second is a Scotch lad, nineteen years old. They came into Gen. McCall's pickets. They say they both belonged to the Sixth Louisiana regiment, commanded by Colonel Seymour; that they deserted from Centreville, where they report sixty thousand men encamped, under Beauregard and Kirby Smith.
