Spict and Graphic, --Henry Winter Davis is thus done up by the Nashville Banner: Davis was considered, while in Congress, one of the most talented, and certainly the most indecent member, next to Sickles. He is essentially a vivid illustration of rowdyism; civilized by training and education, without being Christianized in principle. Of a mind vulgar by nature, but large and capable, he has contrived to scoop up, like a sponge; both the lustre and the dirt of life.

He is essentially a vivid illustration of rowdyism; civilized by training and education, without being Christianized in principle. Of a mind vulgar by nature, but large and capable, he has contrived to scoop up, like a sponge; both the lustre and the dirt of life. He has a singular knack of excelling among a band of rioters, and appearing thereafter with success in the drawing room. At a distance he is a handsome man. Although full five-and-forty years of age, he would pass for a man of five-and-twenty. He has a keen; penetrating grey eye, a head of dark; curling hair, a pale, effeminate-complexion. (some what of a brunette if he were a woman,) with a moustache prettily trimmed, with a view to the appearance of his mouth white speaking. He is vain to excess; Unlik

[By reference to our telegraphic column it will be seen that the battle has taken place, and that Col.

The Yankees left ten dead on the field, and we took eighteen prisoners, most of them wounded. They had Capt. Bacon and one lieutenant killed, and Capt. Davis and one lieutenant wounded, and four prisoners, their total loss being not less than fifty. Our less is Capt. Meriwether and one private killed, and one private wounded. The enemy fled in confusion towards Rumsey. Fatal consequ
Shooting in a Bast room --Yesterday afternoon, between three and four o'clock, an affray occurred in the saloon of Maurice Dennis, near the Central depot, which resulted in the serious wounding of a soldier by a pistol shot. The man who committed the deed was immediately secured, and placed in the custody of Messrs. Mienjah Davis and John Perrin, of the night watch, who took him to the lower station house. He seemed to be considerably under the influence of liquor, and presented the appearance of having been beaten. He says his name is Andy Sullivan, and at first claimed to belong to the McCulloch Rangers; but afterwards said he was attached to an artillery corps encamped near the city. The wounded man's name is Smith, said to be an Englishman by birth, and a member of a Louisiana company. He was shot through the head, and the supposition is that he is fatally injured,--Shortly after the occurrence be was conveyed to the Louisiana Hospital, in the western suburbs of the cit
