des. So soon as Chapman discovered the strength of the enemy, he attempted to recall his men. They were flushed with the victory of their first onset, and hesitatingly obeyed the order of their commander to retreat. But they soon realized the necessity of the movement, and alternately charging and retreating, pressed on all sides by overwhelming numbers, they made their way back to the foot of the mountain where they found a detachment of the 2d United States regulars, under command of Lieutenant Mc-Master, directly across their path. Clustering together for a final rally they charged through this obstacle, killing a number of the Federals, among them the officer in command. In these various encounters six of Chapman's men were unhorsed and captured. After the fight was ended four of them were shot, and two were hung, with a label pinned upon them bearing the ominous words, Such is the fate of all of Mosby's men. Not Custer. It was then thought that this was done by the o

Bank Relief Bill.--The House proceeded to the consideration of the unfinished business of yesterday, being the ryder offered by Mr. McKenzie to the bill for the temporary relief of the banks of this Commonwealth, which had been returned passed by the Senate with certain amendments. The pending question was, shall the bill and ryder be laid on the table. After debate, the House refused to lay it on the table. The ryder offered by Mr. McKenzie, reading as follows: Provided, That the Banks shall not, during the suspension of specie payment, charge and receive damages on drafts for non-payment, nor charge or receive between Baltimore and Virginia, during the suspension of Maryland, a greater rate of exchange than one per cent. Was discussed by Messrs. McKenzie, Robertson and Keen Mr. Keen said he was opposed to the ryder. He concurred fully in the objects proposed to be obtained in a part of it, and would most cheerfully vote

On Mr. Duckwall's motion, the resolution was laid on the table, in consequence of the thinness of the House.

les from the scene of the recent battle of Laurel Hill,) the intelligence of the utter rout and dispersion of Gen. Garnett's army of eight thousand men, which took place yesterday. Gen. Garnett was himself killed in the engagement. The camp, with all its contents, was taken. This victory was won by the division of Gen. McClellan's army under the immediate command of Col. Hill. The following dispatch from Gen. McClellan reached Gen. Scott's headquarters at 2 P. M. to-day: Gen. Mc'clellan's official account of the battle of the 14th. Huttonsville, July 14th. --To Ed. Townsend: Garnett and forces routed. His baggage and one gun taken. His army demoralized. Garnett killed. We have annihilated the enemy in Western Virginia, and have lost 13 killed and not more than 40 wounded. We have in all killed at least two hundred of the enemy, and their prisoners will amount to at least one thousand. Have taken seven guns in all. I still look for the capture of t

Pope intends to make his headquarters in his saddle, and will be prepared for any emergency. Numerical strength of M'Clellan's army. (Army Correspondence of the Cincinnati Commercial.) It would not be prudent to attempt to state definitely how much it has been reduced numerically; but there can be no impropriety in stating that Gen. Mc'clellan was never able to carry over 80,000 effective men into battle. When he landed at Fortress Monroe his muster roll exhibited 115,000 men of all arms. A considerable proportion of these — say 8,000 --were cavalry, of which 2,000 were serviceable; the remainder would have served their country better behind their plows at home. Others were necessarily detailed to keep open our communication and protect our flanks — leaving about 100,000 to be disposed of. A very large percentage of si<

This letter going to General Carlis, then in command, I supposed, of course, it was obeyed, especially as I heard no further complaint from Dr. Mc or his friends for nearly an entire year. I have never interfered, not thought of interfering, as to who shall or shall not preach in any church; nor have I knowingly or be livingly intreated any one else so to interferes by any authority. If a to who shall or shall not preach in any church; nor have I knowingly or be livingly intreated any one else so to interferes by any authority. If any one is so interfering by color of my authority, I would like to have it specifically made known to me. If, after all, what is now sought is to have me put Dr. Mc. back, over the heads of a majesty of his own congregation, that, too, will be declined. I will not have control of any church on any side. Yours, respectfully, A. Lincoln.

The evidence against him is as equally positive against him now as it was in the first case. Benjamin Wilson, a free negro, was ordered to be whipped for obtaining sixty dollars from James McDonald on false pretences.--It appeared that Ben. who is a back driver, went into Mr. McDonald's store on 12th street, near Main, in a great hurry, and represented that Miss Molly Johnson, one of Mc's best customers, was on Main street buying some flour, and had sent to ask Mr. Me to lend her $60. Mr. Mc without hesitation gave the negro the money, but on seeing Miss Johnson learned that she had never sent for any money, and that the whole story was a fabrication. Dolly Harris, a free negro, was charged with stealing clothing from Nicholas Carroll. An armful of clothing of various descriptions, was brought into court by the police who had arrested Dolly, and Carroll claimed it all, and also a small amount of silver and copper coin found in her possession. Some of the clothing was prov
