anticipates an attack upon Washington from the Potomac. The generally accepted military theory is that the rebel armies will attempt to engage our troops at Fairfax, and, while diverting their attention, make a movement by way of Leesburg or Harper's Ferry, force a crossing at these points, occupy Maryland, and excite the secession feeling there into riot and anarchy, break the line of the railroad from Washington to Baltimore, and thus interrupt all communication with the North, prevent suppliy the river is narrow and fordable, but a division of men at Poolesville, with a battery on the hills occupied by Gen. Banks last year, after Ball's Bluff, would render such an attempt a dangerous experiment. Poolesville, Point of Rocks, and Harper's Ferry are all strongly guarded, while a large body of troops are being massed at Baltimore, as I am told, to be held as a reserve, for the purpose of resisting the capture or the invasion of Maryland, or the assault upon Washington.

In the villages merchants closed their stores; in the fields farmers deserted their ploughs, and grasping their rifles, sprang forward to aid in the defence of Cincinnati. In the town of Eaton, on Monday morning, upon the receipt of the papers from this city, the fire bell was rang, and soon the inhabitants of the town were collected.

It would be as difficult to cross the Potomac within range of any of these points as it would have been to evade Bladensburg, is one complete and unbroken line of defences. It would be as difficult to cross the Potomac within range of any of these points as it would have been to evade the flaming sword of the guardian angel.

A Provost Guard was instantly sent out, bringing in straggling soldiers and officers from the streets. The panic of the Unionists at Frederick, Md., is thus described by the Baltimore American: The excitement culminated about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon by a farmer arriving from Buckeystown, who reported to the people of Frederick that the rebels were encamped in the vicinity of that town 40,000 strong, and that they had seized and killed the cattle of the farmers in the vicinity.
