y posted in the woods on the road side. Gen. Milroy rallied his men, and made several attempts to storm and capture their batteries, but was driven back. Daylight was now rapidly approaching, and it was deemed prudent to endeavor again to cut their way through the enemy's lines, which was successfully accomplished, and being without artillery they suffered considerably, especially in prisoners captured, before the enemy gave up the pursuit. About 12 o'clock on Monday they reached Halltown, and the enemy having abandoned the pursuit, they, after a short rest, marched into Harper's Ferry during the afternoon. The gallant fellows were in a sad condition after so severe a march and fight, but were full of spirit and gratification that they had escaped the clutches of the enemy. All the stores, ammunition and wagons at Winchester fell into the hands of the enemy, together with all the artillery, not a gun having been saved. Nearly all the public property and stores wer

The third page of the New York Herald is emblazoned with a map of Pennsylvania, south of the Susquehanna river, showing the route of the "Rebel Invasion," and the line of the Federal defence. All Pennsylvania is a blaze of excitement, and meetings are held in every city, township, and country precinct, to volunteer to check the advance of the Confederate troops.--fortifications are being rapidly erected all along the North bank of the Susquehanna, and General McClellan or Gen. Franklin has been called for to head the State troops. That our readers may appreciate the rapid growth of the Federal terror and the progress of our army, We give a condensation of the first dispatches, dated the 15th.

are safe in camp here. Harrisburg, June 17.--The aspect of affairs, so far as can be judged by the reports from the border, seem to be this: The rebel force occupy Hagerstown and such other points as leave them free to operate either against Harrisburg or Baltimore. Apprehensions are entertained by the people of Altoona and other points on the line of the Pennsylvania Railroad, that the rebels will strike for the West, and then go back to their own soil by way of Pittsburg and Wheeling. The fortifications constructed on the hills opposite Harrisburg are considered sufficient protection for the city, and an offensive movement on our part is not unlikely. The panic is over here, and the people are disposed to underrate the danger of the line of the Shenandoah becoming the seat of war, though there is high authority for stating that such an attempt may be made by Gen. Lee. A batch of the latest dispatches. We give the following batch of the latest dispatches

General Jenkins, who commands the rebel forces, ordered all the stores opened, which was co the people they intended to stay there. Passengers from Frederick represent that only a few rebel pickets were at Hagerstown, though rumors were prevalent that an infantry force was coming across from the direction of Shepherdstown.

rebel leaders that when it comes to a Northern invasion Democrats and Republicans occupy one and the same platform, and know no difference of opinion. Recent events raising some doubts, in many minds, on that point, after all it may be the advance of the enemy to Chambersburg even may prove an advantage to us, if it has served to remove those doubts. The Seventh Regiment left for Harrisburg this morning, and will probably reach their destination before this is in type. On passing down Broadway they were loudly cheered.
