Statement of Mr. Hatcher.
The Appeal, of the 10th, contains a statement from Mr. Jas. Hatcher, of Memphis, who was present during the whole of the conflict, from which we clip the following items:
Maj. John G. Finnie received his wound in the face while rallying a broken regiment, whose Colonel had been unhorsed, and was supposed at the time to be killed.
During the progress of the fight a Parrott gun belonging to Capt. Jackson's battery
he committee appointed at the last session of Congress — composed of Senators John P. Hale, of New Hampshire; J. W. Grimes, of Iowa, and Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee--to inquire into the facts connected with the destruction of the Norfolk and Pensacola Navy-Yards and Harper's Ferry Arsenal, assembled to-day at the Senate Committee room on naval affairs.
Only two of the committee were present, Mr. Johnson not having reached the city.
Commodores McCauley, Paulding, and Pendergrast, and Paymaster Bradford, appeared before them as witnesses, and will give their testimony to-morrow.
The committee are determined to make a thorough investigation into those matters, let the consequences fall where they may.
Some excitement was occasioned here to-day by sharp firing across the river, and a rumor was put in circulation that the rebel army was advancing.
It proved to be only a little extraordinary firing practice in the more distant of our fortifications.
