When Lee's army retreated across the Potomac, in July last, Brigadier-General Kelly concentrated all his available force on the enemy's flank, near Clear Springs, ready to cooperate in the proposed attack by General Mher side. An expedition sent against a rebel camp at Gum Swamp, in May, which captured one hundred and sixty-five prisoners and military stores, and another, in July, against Rocky Mount, on Tar River, which destroyed the bridge at that place and a large amount of rebel property, terminate the military operations in that State rses to this army for the same period have been as follows: In May, five thousand six hundred and seventy-three; June, six thousand three hundred and twenty-seven; July, four thousand seven hundred and sixteen; August, five thousand four hundred and ninety-nine; September, five thousand eight hundred and twenty-seven ; October,sev

Early in July, our strongholds at Vicksburgh and Port Hudson, together with their entire garrisons, capitulated to the combined land ando soon as it had become apparent, by the declarations of the British Minister, in the debates of the British Parliament in July last, that Her Majesty's government was determined to persist indefinitely in a course of policy which, under professions Arkansas, having joined the Confederacy, the Congress adjourned to meet in the city of Richmond in the following month of July.

tes flag-ship Minnesota, off Wilmington, N. C., January 8. sir: The new and swift steamer Dare attempted yesterday morning to get into Wilmington by this entrance; was chased off by the Montgomery and Aries; ran herself ashore, above Georgetown, bilged, filled, and became a complete wreck. This was her first trip. Inclosed is her charter to run cotton. The annexed list shows that the Dare is the twentieth steamer destroyed or captured. by the Wilmington blockaders since the middle of July last, making an average loss of one steamer for every nine days to the blockade-runners, under whose discouraging losses illegal trade with Wilmington is rapidly diminishing. I have the honor to be, sir, very respectfully, yours, S. P. Lee, Acting Rear-Admiral, Commanding N. A. B. G. Hon Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy. A national account. Wilmington, N.

riders rode with agony in their faces, and for at least ten minutes it seemed as if we were going to destruction together. It was my fortune to see the first battle of Bull Run, and to be among those who made that celebrated midnight retreat toward Washington. The retreat of the Fourth division was as much a rout as that of the first Federal army, with the exception that fewer men were engaged, and our men fought here with a valor that was not shown on that serious, sad, mock-heroic day in July. We rode nearly two miles in this madcap way, until on the edge of a ravine, which might formerly have been a bayou, we found Emory's division drawn up in line. Our retreating men fell beyond this line, and Emory prepared to meet the rebels. They came with a rush, and, as the shades of night crept over the tree-tops, they encountered our men. Emory fired three rounds, and the rebels retreated. This ended the fight, leaving the Federals masters. Night, and the paralyzing effect of the sta
