A Washington dispatch to the Philadelphia Inquirer, dated July 14th, A.M., says the enemy began their retreat across the Potomac about 12 o'clock last night. They had held Rockville, about five miles from the Potomac, as a base. This morning our forces started in pursuit, and we may be able to intercept their retreat south. They are carrying their plunder as well as impressed citizens with them. Our losses will not exceed 500. We made considerable captures.
