He reached Little River turn-pike in the evening, and the next day, September 1st, advanced by that road toward Fairfax Court House. Franklin's corps, ft, he moved down toward Fairfax C.

Mcclellan had already Sept. 1. been verbally charged with the command of the defenses of Washington; and was, upon fuller advices of Pope's disasters, invested Sept. 2. by the President and Gen. Halleck with the entire control, not only of those fortifications, but of all the troops for the defense of the capital, in obedience to the imperious demand of a large majority of the surviving officers and soldiers. Pope's original army had in great part been demolished; while that brought from the Peninsula by McClellan h

It is quite probable that his story, though exaggerated, is nearer the truth than Manson's. Smith set forward directly Sept. 1. for Lexington, which he entered in triumph three days afterward, amid the frantic acclamations of the numerous Rebel sympathizers of that intensely pro-Slavery rppi and Alabama, when Gen. Buell, taking Aug. 20. two of his divisions, moved northward in pursuit of Bragg. Rosecrans was at Tuscumbia when advised, About Sept. 1. by telegram from Gen. Grant, that a considerable Rebel force was moving northward between them, and that its cavalry had already attacked Bolivar, and cut the li
red Vicksburg and Lee recoiled from Meade's unshaken front at Gettysburg. Gen. Buford, with his cavalry division, pushed Aug. 1. across the river, at Rappahannock Station, and crowded back, first a brigade, then a division, of Stuart's cavalry nearly to Culpepper Court House, when their infantry compelled him to retreat, fighting, till lie was supported by the 1st corps; when the foe in turn desisted. Our loss this day was 140, including 16 killed. Gen. Kilpatrick next crossed Sept. 1. at Port Conway below Fredericksburg, driving before him a Rebel force stationed on this side, and burning two gunboats recently captured by the Rebels on the Potomac, and run into the Rappahannock for future use. Gen. Pleasanton next crossed Sept. 13. the Rappahannock at Kelly's and other fords with most of our cavalry, in three divisions, under Buford, Kilpatrick, and Gregg, pressing back Stuart's cavalry to Brandy Station and Culpepper Court House, and thence across the Rapidan, ca
od, halting two days Aug. 27-8. to rest; and then making a forced march over the mountains of 40 miles in two days, to Montgomery, and thence reaching Kingston, where the Holston and Clinch rivers unite to form the Tennessee; and where he was greeted by Rosecrans's pickets and communicated with Col. Minty's cavalry; while his army made another forced march oft two days to London, higher up; hoping, thus to save the railroad bridge, 2,000 feet long, over the Holston; which they reached Sept. 1. just in time to see it in flames. Pushing as rapidly to Knoxville — which our cavalry advance had occupied on the 1st--Gen. Burnside was welcomed Sept. 3. with such an outpouring of enthusiastic loyalty and gratitude as had rarely been equaled. But East Tennessee had been overwhelmingly and invincibly loyal throughout, while the sufferings of her Unionists, from Rebel conscription, persecution, and spoliation, had been terrible. Every able-bodied man having been conscripted into the

He had taken 1,000 prisoners. Ere this, Gen. Blunt, pursuing the motley Rebel horde under Standwatie and Cabell, had very nearly brought them to a stand at Perryville, Aug. 26. Choctaw Nation; but they were too nimble to receive much damage, and he chased them by Fort Smith, whereof he took Sept. 1. bloodless possession. Col. J. M. Johnson, 1st [Union] Arkansas, was made post commander. Cabell, it was said, fell back to participate in the defense of Little Rock; but he failed to arrive in season; joining Price's fugitive force somewhere on its retreat to the Washita. Price ultimately fell back to Red river. Gen. Blunt, leaving been on business to Kansas, was returning with a small cavalry escort to Fort Smith, when he was struck, Oct. 4. near Baxter's. springs, Cherokee Natio

My purpose is to be in my action just and constitutional, and yet practical, in performing the important duty with which I am charged, of maintaining the unity and the free principles of our common country. The Autumnal Elections inevitably hinged on and embodied the popular judgment on the issues thus made up; and the brighter prospects of the National cause were reflected in the general success of the Republican candidates. Vermont--the first to vote thereafter Sept. 1.--did, indeed, show a reduction of her always heavy Republican majority — the Democratic party having made no effort 1862. Republican. Democratic. Gov. Holbrook, 30,032. Smalley, 3,724. 1863 Republican. Democratic. J. G. Smith, 29,613.

California voted next: Sept. 3
their loyal neighbors, committed the most cold blooded and diabolical murders, such as riding up to a farm-house, asking for water, and, while receiving it, shooting down the giver — an aged, inoffensive farmer-because he was a radical Union man. In the single sub-district of Mexico, the commanding officer furnished a list of near one hundred Union men who, in the course of six weeks, had been killed, maimed, or run off, became they were radical Union men, or Abolitionists. About the 1st of September, Anderson's gang attacked a railroad train on the North Missouri road, took from it 22 unarmed soldiers, many on sick leave, and, after robbing, placed them in a row and shot them in cold blood; some of the bodies they scalped. and put others across the track and run the engine over them. On the 27th, this gang, with numbers swollen to 300 or 400 men, attacked Major Johnson, with about 120 of the 39th Missouri volunteer infantry, raw recruits, and, after stampeding their horses, shot
orps, which was at once drawn out and thrown to Howard's right, so as to connect with Kilpatrick's troopers. All being at length ready, Davis's corps, at 4 P. M., charged the enemy's lines, covering Jonesboroa, carrying them at once, capturing Gen. Govan with most of his brigade and two 4-gun batteries. Orders were repeatedly sent to hurry up Stanley and Schofield; but tile ground was difficult and the roads bad, so that they were not up in season to charge that night; and next morning Sept. 1. Hardee was gone, with all that could and would follow him. Before that morning dawned, ominous sounds, first heavy, then lighter, from the north, indicated to Sherman that something momentous was occurring in Atlanta, 20 miles distant. They might have proceeded from an attack on that stronghold by Slocum — which was most unlikely — but the more probable supposition pointed to the truth, that Hood, completely outgeneraled and at his wit's end, was blowing up his magazines, burning his st
gn incompatible with thorough loyalty to his commander, is scarcely denied; but good soldiers, who were with him throughout, testified on his trial that his acts were unexceptionable. The court, however, decided otherwise. The following dispatch from Gen. Pope, written the second morning after his defeat at Gainesvilie, refers unquestionably to Porter as one commander of a corps, and is here given only as proving Gen. Pope's convictions as to the causes of his disaster: Centerville, Sept. 1--8:50 A. M. Major-General Halleck, General-in-Chief: All was quiet yesterday, and so far this morning. My men all resting. They need it much. Forage for our horses is being brought up. Our cavalry is completely broken down, so that there are not five horses to a company that can raise a trot. The consequence is, that I am forced to keep considerable infantry along the roads in my rear to make them secure; and even then it is difficult to keep the enemy's cavalry off the roads. I sha
