ath of allegiance prescribed by the Missouri State Convention in October last, and would direct the provost marshal to arrest all State officers who had failed to subscribe to such oath within the time fixed by the Convention, and had attempted to exercise civil authority in violation of the ordinance. The U. S. flotilla on the Lower Potomac was actively engaged to-day in shelling the woods and burning the buildings of the rebels at Freestone Point, Va. The Harriet Lane, Anacostia and Jacob Bell, supported by the Reliance, Stepping Stones, and Herbert, poured a heavy fire for an hour and a half upon the enemy's position. The rebel batteries at Shipping Point kept up a brisk fire, which was responded to by the Union battery at Budd's Ferry with a few shells. Lieut. McCrea, with a boat's crew from the Jacob Bell, and another boat from the Anacostia, went ashore and burned down the rebel buildings at Freestone Point, containing stores.--(Doc. 218.) Adjutant S. K.

Received from steamer Florida one howitzer complete, six rifles, thirteen revolvers, ten pistols. A memorandum-book was found, containing instructions, which reporters were not allowed to see, as it is thought to contain important evidence for Government. An account-book was also found, containing in the back part a list of vessels, probably captured by the rebels, as follows: Jacob Bell, Star of Peace, Oneida, Commonwealth, Kate Dyer, Lapwing, Colcord, Henrietta, Clarence, Estelle, Windward, Carrie Ann, Aldebaran, Byzantium, Isaac Webb, Shatemuc, Whistling Wind, Tacony, Goodspeed, Mary Alvina, Arabella, Umpire, Maringo, Florence, Ripple, Elizabeth Ann, Rufus Choate, Ada, Alfred Partridge, M.

aters. Maffit, the commander of the Florida, was represented by all who knew him as a man lacking all real sense of honor. His conduct in the capture of the Jacob Bell, a merchant ship on her way to New York from China, sufficiently proves the assertion. Among the passengers was Mrs. H. Dwight Williams, wife of the American Cand silver plate. She gave Maffit a list of her personal effects, and begged him to spare them for her. He politely told her he could not, and then went to the Jacob Bell. she obtained permission to return to that ship, where she found Maffit and his fellow-officers engaged in appropriating her property to their own use. They broographs of friends, which they could not use, they trampled under foot on the deck, in her presence. Mrs. Williams was soon taken back to the Florida, when the Jacob Bell was burned. One of Maffit's school-fellows, a recent writer asserts, remembers the following lines, written by another about twelve years of age, on an exhibit

make a grand assault by a concentric fire from all his heavy guns, his field-pieces, and the gun-boats, and, if necessary, by the troops. This was begun toward sunset on the 8th of April, and soon afterward, two companies of the Eighth Iowa, Colonel Bell, of Gedde's brigade of Carr's division, were sent as pickets and sharp-shooters, to gain a crest near the fort, intrench, and pick off the Confederate artillerists. This was done gallantly, in the face of a brisk fire, for General Gibson had doubled his line of sharp-shooters. They were Texans, brave and skillful, and stoutly disputed the advance of the Iowa men. But the latter pressed on, gained the prescribed point, but had to fight instead of digging. Bell saw this, and first sent one company to their aid. Then, seeing his brave men in great peril, he led the remainder *of his regiment to their assistance. He found the place they were holding too hot to be comfortable. To retreat would be fatal; so he gallantly *charged over

ury sustained by his battery, although in equally exposed position with Capt. Weeden's battery. Not an officer or man attached to either battery shrank from valorous performance of duty. The regiments of Gen. Morell's brigade, although saluted occasionally by the dropping in of shells among them, showed no signs of fear. A shell passed over the Ninth Massachusetts regiment, and struck in the pioneer corps of the Sixty--second Pennsylvania regiment. It first tore away the haversack of Jacob Bell, of company D, then struck----Musser, of company I, tearing away his cartridge-box, causing it to explode. After this it hit Jacob Rombaugh, of company D, on the left foot, inflicting a severe wound; slightly bruised John Reddy, a drummer-boy, and then hopped into the air and came down without exploding. Musser subsequently died of his injuries. He lived in Jefferson County, Pa., and was a single man. Gen, Morell and staff and Gen. Martindale and staff were in the foremost places of

eries are erected above those heretofore reported. One of them is nearly opposite the station of the flotilla at Indian Head, and the other nearly opposite the mouth of Mota woman creek. At both batteries heavy guns are mounted evidently, as they threw shot over upon the Maryland shore. The steamtug Pussey left Indian Head last night and reached the Navy-Yard early this morning. When she left, the Harriet Lane and Yankee were near Indian Head, and the Anacostia, Resolute, Reliance, Jacob Bell, Stepping Stones, Murray, and the Herbert, were between the new batteries above mentioned and the station of the rebel steamer George Page in Quantico creek. The Union, Freeborn, and Satellite, are below Quantico. The Reliance was to have run the blockade last night. The Europa at Boston — special British and American messengers.

intelligence: "the very age and body of the times." Among the arrivals at the Port of New York to-day is the brig Lincoln, from Havana, with a cargo of turpentine. As turpentine is not a West India product, the question is where did the Lincoln's cargo come from? The presumption naturally is that it has been run through the blockade, taken to Havana, and thence re-shipped here. This is the second case of the kind which has happened lately. The Harriot Lane, King Philip, and Jacob Bell left the Navy-Yard this afternoon for the flotilla. The Jacob Bell had new bollers made for her, but time would not admit of their being taken on board, and she left with the old boller patched. The principal event in the Senate to-day was the presentation of a petition, signed by 20,000 persons, asking that homeopathic physicians may be employed in the army. The medical faculty are watching anxiously the effect of this alopathic dose. Orders have recently been issued by the Wa

McClellan, we hear, has to-day re-established his headquarters in the building on Pennsylvania Avenue, opposite the State Department, occupied by him for the same purpose before the departure of his Army of the Potomac from this vicinity. Among the gunboats on the river are the following, in addition to the flag ship Wachusett; Jacob Bell, Yankee, Port Royal, Sonoma, Aroostook, Tioga, and Teazer. The Dispatch, Satellite, and others, are in the river, and may shortly be expected up. Another account of the Centreville engagement.
