these conditions of peace, so let it be. The war is and will remain in Pennsylvania, arid further North. The ship Sunrise, commanded by Captain Richard Luce, was captured and bonded by the privateer Florida, in lat. 40° N., long. 68° W. A cavalry expedition sent from Newbern, N. C., on the third inst., under Colonel Lewis of the Third New York cavalry, returned to that point, having successfully accomplished their mission without loss. They destroyed (twisting rails, etc., by General Haupt's plan) two miles of the railroad at Warsaw; also, for five miles more, all the culverts, as well as the telegraph. At Kenansville, an armory was destroyed; large quantities of small-arms and quantities of commissary and quartermaster stores were burnt. About one hundred and fifty animals, and thirty prisoners, were captured by them; and some one hundred men and about three hundred women and children, negroes, followed them in.--General Foster's Report. The Twenty-seventh regiment
laid down at once, for such a traffic. The railroads are heavily taxed, and transportation has been delayed. A case is reported in which horses remained fifty hours on the cars without food or water. There is yet another piece of evidence showing that there had been delays in the transportation of supplies to the army of General McClellan. In August, 1862, the superintendence and management of all the railways used by the Government for military purposes were intrusted to Brigadier-General Haupt, a competent and energetic officer. On the 10th of November, five days after the date of the order removing General McClellan, he addressed, from Washington, a circular letter to post-quartermasters, commissaries, officers and agents of military railroads, from which we make a few extracts:-- gentlemen:--The exceedingly critical condition of affairs compels me to address to you this circular, and to endeavor, with all the earnestness and force of language I can command, to expla
strongly urged him to retain his present base, and to continue his march toward Richmond in a manner pointed out in the President's letter of October thirteenth, 1862, to General McClellan. General Burnside did not fully concur in the President's view, but finally consented to so modify his plan as to cross his army by the fords of the upper Rappahannock, and then move down and seize the heights south of Fredericksburgh, while a small force was to be sent north of the river to enable General Haupt to reopen the railroad and to rebuild the bridges, the materials for which were nearly ready in Alexandria. I, however, refused to give any official approval of this deviation from the President's instructions until his assent was obtained. On my return to Washington, on the thirteenth, I submitted to him this proposed change in the plan of campaign, and, on its receiving his assent rather than approval, I telegraphed, on the fourteenth, authority to General Burnside to adopt it.

, tents, etc., not having a full supply here. There has not been, so far as I could ascertain, any neglect or delay in any department or bureau in issuing all supplies asked for by Gen. McClellan or by the officers of his staff. Delays have occasionally occurred in forwarding supplies by rail on account of the crowded condition of the depots, or of a want of cars, but, whenever notified of this, agents have been sent out to remove the difficulty, tinder the excellent superintendence of Gen. Haupt. I think these delays have been less frequent and of shorter duration than is usual with freight trains. Any army of the size of that under Gen. McClellan will frequently be for some days without the supplies asked for, on account of neglect in making timely requisitions, and unavoidable delays in forwarding them, and in distributing them to the different brigades and regiments. From all the information I can obtain, I am of opinion that the requisitions from that army have been fille
r reports a general battle imminent. Franklin's corps should move out by forced marches, carrying three or four days provisions, and to be supplied, as far as possible, by railroad. Perhaps you may prefer some other road than to Centreville. Col. Haupt has just telegraphed about sending out troops. Please see him and give him your directions. There has been some serious neglect to guard the railroad, which should be immediately remedied. I replied as follows: Aug. 27, 10 A. M. range for supplies for his command. I am responsible for both these circumstances, and do not see that either was in disobedience to your orders. Please give distinct orders in reference to Franklin's movements of to-morrow. I have sent to Col. Haupt to push out construction and supply trains as soon as possible. Gen. Tyler to furnish the necessary guards. I have directed Gen. Banks's supply-trains to start out to-night at least as far as Annandale, with an escort from Gen. Tyler.

s, and through an intermediate lever feeds the drill. In Ingersoll's, the piston-rod projects only in one direction (forward), and is hollow to receive a spiral guide for imparting rotation. The feed-screw works in a socket parallel with the cylinder, and is operated by a rod which passes through the spiral guide, and has a head which, by means of a crank movement, actuates the feeding-ratchet. The motor-valve is operated by plug-tappets at either end of the cylinder. Fig. 4377. The Haupt drill is supported on four adjustable legs, and is sufficiently light to be moved by two men, and is operated by a single man with 2-horse power of steam; at 30 to 40 pounds pressure it drills a 1 3/8-inch hole in hard limestone, at the rate of 5 inches per minute. Compressed air may be used, and the machine has the usual horizontal, angular, and vertical adjustments. Shelburne's submarine rock-drill, employed for removing the obstructions at Hellgate, is supported on a semi-spheroidal h
es, each apparently intended to fire five or more torpedoes. The torpedoes were of three kind: shells, 13′ diameter; boiler-iron cylinders, 13″ diameter and 18° long; buoy-shaped sheet-iron cylinders of about the same capacity as the cylinders. Before the storming of the fort shells had cut a number of the wires leading from the work, saving the attacking party from much loss and demoralization. Ground-torpedoes, buried beneath the surface to explode when trodden upon: bridge-torpedoes (Haupt's), to rend the timbers or arches of bridges in demolishing them; and railway-torpedoes, to blow up a track when a train passes, are all effective military devices. 3. Torpedoes for opening the fissures of oilwells have been patented by Colonel E. A. L. Roberts and others, and their use has restored productiveness to many wells. In some cases the wells have become choked by paraffine or other concretion, some perhaps by sediment; in others it is probable that an explosion has opened fi

tter from the President to General McClellan, dated the thirteenth of last month. I wish you to carefully consider the President's views as contained in that letter, so that we may talk it over understandingly to-morrow. General Meigs and General Haupt will accompany me. Yours, truly, H. W. Halleck, General-in-Chief. On the ninth day of November, General McClellan issued an order relinquishing the command of the army; after which an order was issued from my headquarters assuming comber, and delivered to General E. W. Cullum, Chief of Staff, the following day; after which General Halleck telegraphed me that he thought he would meet me at Warrenton on the next day (the twelfth), which he did, accompanied by Generals Meigs and Haupt. During that night and the next morning we had long consultations. General Halleck was strongly in favor of continuing the movements of the army in the direction of Culpepper and Gordonsville, and my own plan was as strongly adhered to by me.
