The Daily Dispatch: October 11, 1861., [Electronic resource], Down the Rio Grande — the trip from Mesilla to Brownsville. (search)
io Grande — the trip from Mesilla to Brownsville. A party of four adventurous gentlemen--Mr. Louis Bucha, merchant; Dr. Bradshaw, dentist; Mr. Brackett, distiller; and Mr. Patchin, miner — arrived in this city on Saturday last from the town of Mesilla, in the Territory of Arizona, after a voyage of two months down the Rio Grande. Teh party left Mesilla on the 29th day of June last, and have been on the river ever since, without stopping at any place more than a day until they arrived at Davis ranche, where they stopped four days. The experiment of navigating the Rio Grande from El Paso, fifty miles this side of Mesilla, has often been talked of, but no person has heretofore performed the hazardous undertaking. The gentlemen who arrived here on Saturday were solely prompted to the voyage, which they have so successfully accomplished, by the desire to do what so many had talked of, and which was pronounced an impossible journey. At present considerable bets are pending in Me

The name of the deceased was ancertained to be Andrew Jackson McLemore. In one of his pockets was found a key of a room at the Spotswood House, and the body was conveyed thither, but not received; and it was subsequently deposited in Mr. George Dowden's warehouse, (Brooks's,) on Byrd street. On the person of the deceased, and with his effects, were found letters addressed to President Davis, and other prominent men, recommending him for a position in the army. It further appeared that he had lately been engaged in an unsuccessful effort to raise a company in Tennessee. The body and effects were taken possession of by friends.

Major-General Vodger. This active Federal officer and scientific bridge builder, at one time an instructor at West Point, has at last been captured at Santa Rosa Island. It is understood that President Davis designs employing him in building "cord uroy" bridges in Florida.
--A special dispatch to the Mobile advertiser and Register, of yesterday's date at Pensacola, states that five companies of Mississippians were engaged in the fight on Santa Rosa Island on Wednesday night, under the command of Col. Chalmers, with Captains Benton, McGowen, Peak, and Miller, and Lieutenants Watson, Myckle, Johnson, McGowen, Banks, and Smith. The casualties were three killed, among whom is private W. E. Welbur. Among the wounded are Capt. Benton and privates Stillman and Davis. The Georgia troops suffered severely. Col. Brown treats the wounded prisoners kindly. Latest Intelligence.--The Federals have 22 of our men prisoners, including the wounded. Lieut. Layne is in the enemy's hospital doing tolerably well, and it is hoped that his leg will be saved. Col. Brown, of Fort Pickens, will not respect our hospital, and Dr. Ford will not remove the sick until the hospital is fired into. Sixteen of our dead are now being brought over.
years in the United States House of Representatives as to obtain the appellation of "father of the House." Mr. Newton has himself represented this city in the Virginia Legislature with credit and efficiency. He was an "old-line Whig" at the time when that very respectable party had existence; but of late years has kept out of the political arena. Since our civil troubles commenced he has been a warm supporter of the cause of Southern rights. As he is understood to advocate the election of Davis and Stephens, I presume there will be no opposition to him in the district. There will be a second performance of the "Amateur Histrionic Association" of the 12th Regiment of Virginia Volunteers, at the New Opera House to-night. The programme is a rich and varied one. The first performance, on Thursday night was largely attended by the ladies and gentlemen of the city. There have been quite a number of public performances by amateurs in the several regiments stationed here, given for
ners to Europe. If this be so, it is a notable instance of the violation of neutrality, and deserves to have the attention of the English Government called to it. Any subject of Great Britain who would identify himself so far with the rebel cause as to act as bearer of dispatches between traitors at home and traitors abroad can have no very nice sense of honor or self respect, and as Sir James must have passed through the Northern States to get to Richmond, he has doubtless given the Jeff. Davis cabal the benefit of his observations, and earned in addition to his knightly title that of spy, so that he may be known hereafter as Sir James Ferguson, Spy, M. P. We wish him joy of his new honors.--New York Herald. Miscellaneous. This morning privates Pratt and Woodbury, two of the fifty-seven prisoners released from Richmond, arrived in this city, and passed to their regiment, the Second Vermont. Three new laboratories on the site of the one blown up are nearly completed, a
