. The Richmond Enquirer, of the 1 1th
inst, just received here, has an account of
the confiscations of estates and property
ia Virginia, which have occurred under
the terms of the recent sequestration act
of the rebel Congress, since the 30th of
September. The aggregate value of the
property thus confiscated owned by North
ern citizens or loyal Virginians, is esti
mated at SS00.000. Among the sufferers
are the following persons named in the
Enquirer's list :
Augustus belniont, of New York, who
loses 500 hhds. tobacco, valued at $23,

Washington, Oct. 17.
It was a brilliant affair yesterday.
Colonel Geary, with one thousand men,
grossed tlie Potomac ut Bulivor, near
Harper's Ferry, and routed two or three
thousand rebels, charging them with the
bayonet, driving them three miles, and
capturing a thirty-two pounder, upon
which Colonel Geary wrote his dispatch.
The rebel loss in killed and wounded is
one hundred and fifty. Our losss was
four killed and ten wounded one mor
tally. Baltimore, Oct. 17.
A gentleman from near Harper's Fer
ry, furnishes the particulars of a fight
between six companies, consisting of parts
of the Eighteenth Pennsylvania, Third
Wisconsin, and Thirteenth Massachusetts
regiments, under command of Col. Geary,
and 300 rebels.
Early yesterday morning the rebels
showed themselves on Bolivar Hights, at
Harper's Ferry, and commenced an at
tack from artillery, with companies, under
Major J. P. Gould, stationed on the north
side of the Potomac.
A constant fire was kept up for some
hours, when three companies of the Third
Wisconsin crossed the river, formed into
line and drove the enemy back and suc
ceeded in capturing on of their heavy
guns. They were, however, compelled
to retreat, which they did in good order
to the river. Here they w ere reinforced
by three other companies, and they then,
with Colonel Geary at their head, march
ed upon the enemy, and after hard fight
ing, drove them from their positions, and
recaptured the thirty-two pounder a co
lumbiad. Our forces had but three pieces of ar
tillery, and these were fired from this
side of the river until the enemy retreat
ed. The enemy had seven pieces of ar
tillery and 500 cavalry, together with
their infantry, and were completely
routed and driven back some three miles.
Our loss in killed and wounded is not
over seven, while that of the enemy is at
least 150. Col. Ashley, who was at the
head of the rebels, is among ihe killed.
