We have boon cut off from “all the world and the rest of mankind” almoit from the time General Earlv last occupied Martinsburg last .Sunday week. Sinco laat Sunday wo have had onr own troubles and our own vart. On Sunday morning Last we received information that Chainbersburg had been laid in ashes by the Rebels. On Sunday evening news reached us that they were in Hancock on their march for this place after burning at Ilanccek, bridges, boats and buildings. The citizens were nssein* bled by tlio Mayor on Sunday evening to determino on what they would do in the matter next day. Information received early on Momlay morning indicated that they were rapidly approaching our city It is useless to say that there was panic fear, and commotion, as wo had no rcli able information as to the force of tho ad vaiicing enemy, and fearful imaginations drew tho conclusion that it must bo a large and f)rinidablo force. Tho best use was made by Gen’l Kelley of tho lim ited force at his disposal backed up by such of our citizens as could be armed and equipped on such short notice. About half past 2 p. .m, information was received that tho llcibcl force was within four miles of us, Gcn’l Kelley with one regiment of infantry and a section of artillery immediately jmsted out tho Balti more pike and took position about two and a half miles from tho city on an cl ev.ated ridge running at right angles with the road by which the enemy were ap proaching. About three o’eloek the ball opened and our citizens were, f>r the first time greeted with the first earnest sounds of actual warfaru in tho shapo of hearty and rapid cannonading which continued ‘with change of time and placo until near dark. Wo judged from tho sound that our artillery was served with more vigor and spirit than that of tho enemy. At last it ceased, and from tho reports ofcit-ixena who hud “run the blockade” of the pickets, and from some soldiers who returned we came to the conclusion that the enemy had not held their ground and were on the retreat. Such proved to be tho case. Our loss was one horse killed; two men pretty badly, though not fatally, wounded, beside some four or five very slightly scratched. Such wo Icam is the amount of damage on our side. What tho rebel loss is we do not certainly know but three of their killed and two badly wounded were left by them as also a large quantity of artillery amunition supposed to have been unlo.adcd to haul off their killed and wounded, of which latter we learn from parties in the neighborhood was thirty-odd. In addition to this they hod two artillery horses killed. During the night they marched southward tS the Potomao in the neighborhood of Green Spring Run. There on Tuesday their passage was disputed by 500 men and an iron-clad car with one small howitser. These held them at bay several hours, but at Last the enemy sucoccd-•d in patting a ball into tho boiler of tho iron-clad engine and dismounting their howitser as also the surrender of 80 men and their Colonel in the Block house and thereby securing their passage. .^t half past one on Tuesday afternoon inTormation was circulated that the enemy had sent in a flag of truce to a picket post, one and half miles from the city at Wiley’s ford, on tho river, demanding tiie snrrender, or throating the sboUiug of Cumberland. This changed at onec the plans of General Kelley’s operations, aad artillery and infantry were conntor-•«hed toward that point, and it was t^llliMaiDed to bo a piece of strategy to prsnrant the arranged attack on the re-gglgltwg forces at Green Spring and give HR tíme to effeot tbeir crossing into TIfginia. Thus have two of omr impor-MM days for the preparation of our paper Wm wasted, for be it understood that ^'«arinnds had to handle muskets instead this, we hope, will prove a suf-t m¡^t apology for the meagreness of our dent at Harpers Kerry that Martinsburg was in possession of onr troops, and that no rebel forces were on this side of the Potomac, while oor ears give us assurance that they were on Maryland soil, witliin throe mites of us oontcnding for the possession of our city! We are indebted to the energy of General Kelley and the firmness of his forces for the salvation of our city at this time, as well as to tho fact tlial the American i intelligence came after we had demonstration that "Wolft was this time no/'ilse cry. To General Katley and his forces, with some of our citisens, are wc indebted for our safety to this time and not to any assistance or countenance from our own State authorities, to whom, we understand wc are indebted for notliing but tiknt mrUcrnpt. Wo have been informed that repeated and official applications have been made to Governor Bradford to enforce tho Militia law passed last winter as wc arc informed, at hit lulie.itation. These applications have apparently bad no effect or received no response from those to whom wo have the rigid to look for aid and protection nlthougli ample time has cl.apscd. We anticipate our timo of going to press for fear wc may not have that opportunity shortly. Tuesday night a rebel force crossed tho river at Brady's Mill, G miles west of us, and cut off the railroad communication in that direction, so wo are brought down to two-horso stage coaches. A squod of about sixty men, wo learned last night, were on the National road between this place and Frostburg, and this Wednesday morning we have tho rumors that Frostburg is token. This may be or may not be true, but we have no doubt that was the object of that squad. We also learn that tho railroad bridge across the North Branch near New Creek has been destroyed.— Wo give tho rumors for what they may bo worth, we know that the statements arc neither ÍOTpoMi'We nor impriLih'c, and wo expect that considerable damage will bo dono before wo arc rid of them. TIio question may bo asked, why docs not Gen. Kelley prevent this? Wo have only to say that he has so far done alt that his means could do, which is to defend his position in and immediately around Cumberland, tho responsibility for all elso is not on bis shoulders, so let it rest where it may belong: “fodjniti-cia mat athan." When this Last takes place we expect to " catch larkt," (if wc are not eauy/it before that h.appcns.) We hope and believe that this state of the case will prove a sufficient apology for our want of appearance this week. Later information settles tho fact that the Rebels did not get to Frostburg, neither did they reach Clarysvillo ; no doubt, having received information that the Hospital atraospbcrc would prove very unhealthy, they struck across the turnpiko this sido of Clarysvillo—locality" unknown. .We have reason to believe that tho Rebels on Monday, lost a considerable number more in kilbsl as well as wounded than tho numbers above named mies would probably meet close to the . the Idlh of November, 1828.

Our city for a week past ha.s been in a state of excitement, eon.sequeiit upon the various rumors afloat to tlio effect that a largo Rebel force was advancing upon tho eity in two columns and on different roads. On Sunday evening last a report reached hero that tfap enemy had crossed at Hancock, their column extending a mile in length, and headed in the direction of Cumberland; that another force of Rebels was on the mareh from Bedford, and it was thought that both columns would endeavor to form a junction at this pl.ace; that they were pressed in their roar by tho Union troops. At night a meeting of on* citizens was held for the purpose of taking steps toward organizing in defence of the city and to oo-oporate with tho military forces under command of General Kelley Tho meeting was ad dressed by tho Mayor, who urged upon all tho importance and necessity of or ganizing and arming to defend their homes and firesides from tho destruction of an invading and ruthless fuo. He said tho danger was imminent, and whatever was to bo done should bo done niinodiately. A committee was appointed to wait upon General Kelley and to learn from him the true state of affairs Tho General informed tho oommittee that an attempt would undoubtedly bo made by tho Rebels to force an entrance into tho city, and advised tho citizens to prepare themselves for the emergency. The committee returned and made their report to tho meeting. Preparatory steps were then taken to effeot an organization, which, wo are sorry to announce, succeeded only to a very limited extent. Three ocmpanics wero funned, consisting of about 200 men. Monday morning the excitement was anabated, it being ascertained to a certainty that the Rebels wore approaching the city from the direction of Hancock. Captain Petrie, with bis iron-clad cars, came op from No. 12 Water Station and stated that bis scoute had seen tho enemy pass Mrs. Beall’s Tavern Stand on the Baltimoro turnpike, twenty-five miles east of Cumberland, At 12 o’clock, m., a soout came in and reported them near Flintetone, steadily advancing towards the eity, instead of turning off from the pike, as some tbooght they would, and effect a erossing of the riror at Green Spring Run. At 8 p. M., anoiber scoot placed them' at the siz-mile houss, still on the forward move. At thie time the ezcite-meM ran to its highosl point; our mcr-ohanti engagtsd in sending off tbeir goods in every direction to piaoes of safety ; railroad stock moving west at a rapid rate; citisens rnnning to and fro, climbing the adjaeent hills to witness, as they anticipated, the scene of conflict between the Rebels sod the Union forces, as both ar- over. The booming of cannon gave evidence of the opening of the battle.— Tbo smoke could bo plainly seen ascending from where the contending for<;cs had taken thair positions. The firing was desultory. Ever and anon the crack of a sharpaliootor’s rifle could be huar.l.— No Infantry bccanic engaged, but was principally an artillery ducd. The battle opened near the rcs'dence of John Folek, on Evatt's creek, about three miles from this place. The Rebel sliarpshootcrs sheltered themselves in Mr. Folck’s barn which sheltered them but for awhile, as the shells from our cannon soon destroyed it. At the firing ceased. The oas-ualtics on both sides arc few, only two on our side. Tho loss uf the enemy is not known, but is supposed to be small as the firing was at long range. Thus eiidi.’d the first battle of Cumberland, and the the design of the Rebels frustrated. We liopo it may bo the last. During the night tho enemy dccaiiiped, and are believed to have croascd the river into Virginia near Oldtown In roviowiiig the wliole affair wo cannot refrain from cxpre.ssiog regret at (ho seeming indiffercnco of many of our citizens and tbo apparent lethargy displayed on tho occasion, fraught, as it wa.», with such momentous rc.'iultR. Had there been a general arming of the citizens, at least one thousand more men could have been added to tbo force of General Kelley, which, indeed, appeared iiiadcqimtn to the task before them, but they proved equal to tho emorgency and prevented our city from being plundered and perhaps destroyed by a ¡lililcss enemy. P. S.—Since the above was put in type our community was thrown very suddenly into a commotion. News caine that tho enemy had cajitured onr ironclads, whieb sub.sequeiilly proved to be correct. A shot from the Rebel eiiiinoii penetrated tlio boiler of tho locomotive nttaclicd to (lie iroii-clads, and di.salded (ho guns within them, thus n iidoriiig all u.seless, and, as a mutter of, fell into tho hands of tho eiiomy. Between 2 and 3 o’cloek. I'. .M., a report was brought in to the effect that the Rebels had planted their cannon upon a hill in close proximity to tho city; and had sent in a of truco deiiiaiicling the surrender of the place, and that unless the demand was acceded to tlioy would eoinmcnco shelling the city. General Kelley was determined not to surrender, as ho made preparations to give them battle. It appeared afterwards tliat tlic sliell-ing affair was a hoax. No cannon of the enemy wero in position at all, and the flag of truce was sent in by a small sqaud of rebels NOTICES.

McPlIERSON. The following, very able articlo on the death of this bravo and gallant soldior, wo copy from tho Philadelphia Daily Inquirer of tho 25th ultimo:— Major General James B. McPherson was killed in battle near Atlanta, Georgia, on tho 22d of July. No tiding of victory that will meet tho eyes of tho people to-day will relievo the weight of public sorrow caused by that brief announcement. At the early age of thirty-five ho fell in tho service of bis country, a most gallant, skillful and honored soldier; a Brigadier General in tho reblar army, a Major General of Volunteers, and the commanding General of the army of the Tennessee, with a rank and^ command cqnal to that of a Marshal of France in tho palmiest ditys of the old Empire. It is fitting, therefore, that his history shonld bo made known fully to tho people, that his fame, so proudly regarded while be was living, may be faithfully oherisbed now that he is anioitg the glorious and honored dead. The little village of Clyde, in Sandusky county, Ohio, was the hirth-nlace of James A. McPherson. He was born on The Army of the Tennessee is composed of the Fifteenth, .Sixteenth and Seventeenth Corps. It was this splendid column that .McPherson led during the operations from Cliatt.anonga to Atlanta. The glorious names of that campaign arc still vivid ill the remembrance of tbe people.

Ho died on the field, the Commaiidiiig General of that army which he entered two years ago as an unknown staff offieer- Ilis fall will be deeply deplored by tho people, a.s a serious loss to the army and to the country, in her hour of need. SECRET HISTORY OF HUNTER’S CAMPAIGN. A “staff officer” in Gen. Hunter’s army writes to the N. Y\ World to answer some insinuations by that journal against the conduct of Hunter’s campaign against Lynchburg. We make the following ox tracts from bis letter ; they give infonna-tion on points not before understood :— “First having used np nearly all the ammunition of bis command in five en-gngcmoiits and man^ skirmishes, and being short of provisions for bis men, Gen Hunter fell" back to Salem, and from thcnco on his way to the Kanawha Valley, expecting to find a largo depot of commissary and quartermaster stores at 31cadow's Bluff, about six days’ march from Lynchburg. Had the stores reok-oncd upon been forthcoming, he would only have had to await the arrival of an ammunition train, then on iu way, and. could immediately have resumed active operations in the vicinity of Lynchburg, with demonstrations against Danville and the Rebel capital. “ Uia depot of supplies at Meadow's Bluff, however, ho found on hie {rrival had been abandoned by the two regiments of Ohio (one hundred days) State militia left to guard h, these rustic patriots having been stampeded by about eighty mounted guerrillas under Captain McNeil. They hod burned one-half the stores left in tbeir charge, and ran off with the balanee to    Greek and Charleston. This bitter disappointment involving mneh snfláriag to uie men of his command, impelled General Hunter could return to his post at Martinsburg and the mouth of the Shenandoah Valley. “Second. The only artillery lost by General Hunter consisted of six pieces out of thirty-eight, which six pieces we had to destroy ourselves. Gen. A. N. Duffie was in command of our cavalry advance on our return from Lynchburg, and had orders to strongly picket all side-roads and bridlc-paths leading in upon tbe main lino of march. This duty he in one instance neglected, and the result was that the enemy, who could see all our movements from the surrounding hills, suddenly sent in a picked force of about two hundred mounted men, upon an unguarded sidc-ruad, to attack our artillery. Of tlicso mounted men about sixty carried hatchets.with which they hacked the wheels of about ten pieces of the artillery train uf our First Division. AVhile they were at work, however, a section of Captain Du Font’s regular battery wheeled into position, and sent grape and spherical ease through the bodies of over thirty of them. “Col. Schoonmaker’s brigade of Gcn-.Avorills division also arrived quickly on the scene, and of the two hundred picked men who formed the attacking force, it is j questionable if over seventy got back to tbeir camp. Four of the ton injured guns were iininediatclr remounted on the .Sparc wheels of the balance of tbe artilery and the six guns which could not be U>-te‘d along, were so effectually destroyod as to remain mere lumber on the road, of no future possible use in warfare. This was the sole injury inflicted on General Hunter's command by the enemy. They never captured one of our w;igoiis, either going up the iSlieanandoab or returning down the Kanawha. They never broke our lines in any engagement, nor ever captured a prisgncr, except some wounded men in our attacks on their rifle-pits-at Lynchburg; or some sick straglers who may have fallen to tiic rear, unable to keep up with Our mareh. “Third. Our return by way of the Kanawha was (as before shown) witlalbe expcctetion of receiving supplies at Meadow’s Bluff. This expectation was disappointed by the inexperience of the men of the one hundred-day Ohio State militia, and tho incoinpetency, not to use a harsher term, of the commanding officers of that organizatiou. Thus compelled to march on to Ijoup Creek for supplies, our shortest and quickest route back to tbo mouth of the Slienaiidoah Valley lay by steamboat down the Kanawha and up tlio Ohio to Parkersburg, and from thence by rail to Harper's Ferry — It was at I’arkersburg, moreover, that wo first heard of the invasion of Maryland, and the flight of General Sigol from Mar-tiiisbiirg to Ma.iyland Heights, before an niidevolopeJ cneiny. So niueli for having “gono to most among the niouiitaiiis of Western A’irginia.” ‘AlAiurth. Your statement that Gen. eral Hunter is not one of Gon’l Grant's selections, but President Lincoln's is simply a misstatement. General Hunter as a field officer lor active service, enjoys tbe iiiiliiiiitod confidenco of Gon'l Giant, and of Gcn'l Ilalleek aLso. He was selected by General Grant to command a Corps of tbe Army of the Putoniae, and was at Grant’s headquarters, conferring and receiving instructions for that coni-inand, when the nows arrived of General Sigcl's defeat at Newmarket.

How then is peace attainable ? In two ways South, or by conquest. Peace is to bo attained by separate State action through the power of the people. Wo are now having a practical illustration of the process in North Carolina. K Governor is to be elected in that .State next iiioiitli. Two candidates are before the people : Governor Vaiicc, tho present incumbent, and W. C. Holden. The former of these is an adherent of the Kirhiiioiid Government, wilting to stand by its fortunes to the last. The latter is an eiiemv to that Government, and is pledged, if elected, to call a convention to sever all connection with it.— The last accounts make it scoin very probable that bn may bo elected.

Fgr that erroneous retention, by whomsoever oonimitted, certainly not by General Hunter, the country lias already paid a sufficient pri~e. Fifth. You ask “Why did not (ieii-cral Hunter retreatdown the Slienandimh Valley?” or words to that effect. The answer is simplicity itself. Wo were short of amniunition, two of onr brigades cxponding their Inst cai ti iilge in repelling the attack raado on us at Liberty. Wi were utterly out of provisions, and ex pectcd to find over a million rations at Meadows Bluff.

One more general cng.xgeinent, even of the slightest magnitude, would have left us without a round of ammunition for gun, howitzer musket, carbine or revolver; and it is no toriously and obviously impossible to collect supplies of fond in a hostile country while ill the presence of a superior cii-niy.

Times.] Wo do not ask whether peace is desirable. No puhlio journal has supported the war more steadfastly than this.— Thnough all the varying fortunes of the striiggle, it has never for an instant abated .one jot of faith or dctcrminatinn.— But this has not been because wo have loved tho war for its own sake. None but a devil could do that. This sacrifice of blood, of treasure, this monthly mn-kins of widows and orphans by the thou sand, this turning of acres by the hundred thousand into desolation, is dreadful work. We have upheld it only because it is a necessity—because its only alternative is something more drcadfni yet. It has been because tbe war alone can save the Republie, the last hope of popular government and human progress and because if the Republic perishes it must be succeeded by an indefinite number of military confederacies with- discordant interests and in endless conflict, that we have sustained the war and shall sustain it. We shall stand up to it unwaveringly so long as these reasons are in foroe. For all that, it is a thing to be deplored. Peace is a consnmmation most devoutly to be wished. Can peace be had ? Wo believe it.— In our judgment it is snre to come within twelve months, if tlie Northern people are true to their duty. How is it to come ? By negotiation with the Confederate Government ? No. It is the most baseless and the most pernioioua of all delusions to imagine that the Jeff. Davis orew will treat with onr National antho-rities on any baais that can end the war. Wha* they have demanded from the be-ginnug has been to be “let alone. ” To let them alone is to make them independent. UpM that independence they have staked everything they have, or except, on earth. Carolina can now do so easily, if they but will, tlie fKKiplo of any other Soutlicrn State do. They simply have to quit the rebel flag, to be hailed as fellow-en-emlcs of the Richnioml ii«iirpation, and to 1)1! welcomed back as fellow-partiiers in all our ooiiiitle.^.s national blessings. IVace, so far as there is no such voluntary action by the Soiithero people, is to be attained by, in precisely tho siimc way that it has been nlrc.Tdy secured in Tennessee, iu Louisiana, and in •■ What has been effected in tho past demonstrates what can he effected in the future. It may cost a great deal more of hloml and of money, a great deal more of saerifiec and of suffering in every form, but the only possible end must bo an utter powerlessnoss on tho part of the .Southern people to resist lon-gef. Wo pr.ay to heaven that no such extremity shall come; but it is as incv-iteble as fate, if the .‘'outhcm people persist in casting their lot with the desperation of Jeff. Davis. If the Southern people will not give us peace as their fellow-country men, wn shall secure it as their oonqiicrors. We know this is not gracious language. But it is a naked fact. If tho salvation of this Republic is to depend upon the annihilation of its enemies, if the word which Jeff. Davis h.os spoken is to be the accepted device of the Southern people, then tho war shall conic to that, and the sword shall thus cleave tho way to security and peace. Our faith is that tho Southern people will refuse to follow Jeff. Davis much longer in his mad career. It docs not seem to us possible that they can keep up their rebel spirit in the face of such campaigns as that of Sherman's—in tho face of such immense reinforcements to our armies as tho last draft will secure—in the face of such an expression of unyielding determination of the Northern people as the re-election of President Lincoln will afford. But we make no attempt at prophecy. They have amazed us often by their folly in times past, and they may so amaze us again. This only wo will assert: that peace not long hence this Government will have, either uirongh them or in spite of them; a peaoo consistent with their honor, their just rights, their best interests, or a peace carrying to them humiliation and rnin; at ail events a peace that shall rc-estsblish tbe nation, and make it forever one and indivisible.
