Scouting parties from the Harper's Ferry forces have seized thirteen locomotives at Williamsport, which they have switched into Winchester road. The batteries are being withdrawn from the Maryland side and are retreating on the route towards Winchester, which has been strongly fortified. The Secessionists are strong and gaining in Frederick, Maryland. The Unionists there are quaking with apprehension of an advance from Point of Rocks, three miles distant.

From Louisville. Louisville, June 8. --A dispatch dated Louisville, May 25th, conveys the impression that packages for the Confederate States have been opened and inspected at Louisville, by Adams' Express Company. This is a mistake. The Louisville office of this company has in no respect deviated from the customary regulations, taking whatever is offered for points South. The outrages alluded to occur only North of the Ohio river, and only under legal compulsion. Louisville, pulsion. Louisville, June 8.--It is understood that Speed has instructions which he will obey, to deliver no more letters from seceded States, and Tennessee, now in the office, but to forward them to the Dead Letter office at Washington.
