On the 28th the command crossed the Monongahela at Morgantown and marched on Fairmount, which they occupied on the morning of the 29th, capturing the garrison of 260 after a brisk fight. Scarcely was this capitulation concluded before reinforcements arrived, who began shelling the Confederates, but the enemy was held off, mainly by Harman and Marshall, while under the direction of Lieutenant Williamson and Capt. John Henderson the magnificent iron railroad bridge of three spans, each 300 feet, erected at a cost of about half a million dollars, was completely destroyed. The Confederate loss at Fairmount was but 3 wounded. At dark the command started out to join Imboden, and finding Clarksburg occupied by the Federals, the Maryland cavalry under Brown made an attack on Bridgeport, 5 miles west of that place, capturing 47 prisoners, burning the bridge to the east and the trestle work to the west, and running

Of the midshipmen who go into the Naval School at Newport, R. I., there are only eight from the seceded States. The cotton mills in Webster, Mass., have been stopped. Large numbers of persons have thus been thrown out of employment. All the bridges on the Northern Central Railroad between Harrisonburg and Baltimore have been rebuilt. There has recently been a great freshet in the rivers in the State of Maine. Most of the merchant vessels now leaving Boston go out fully armed.

Not long after the achievement of such a great victory, which only served to stimulate them and embolden them to dirtier tricks, some of them came across at the same spot to pillage; but previous information was given to Captain John Henderson, of the "Home Guard Troop," who secreted themselves to watch the adventurers. When they had succeeded in gaining the Virginia side, and were plundering away to their infinite satisfaction, Henderson's men pounced upon them and captured tnd made good their escape. It affords me pleasure to state that we need no longer fear the commission of depredations along the Jefferson county border. We now look for, and reasonably expect, a change in the programme. In addition to Capt. Henderson's troop, Lieut.-Col. Ashby, with a considerable number of cavalry, are now encamped a short distance from town, and is on the alert all the time.

Free Press, of the 12th inst., says that Capt. John Henderson, captain of the "Home (cavalry) Guard," was shot by one of his soldiers named Miller, on Sunday last. The shot was an intentional one, but we have not learned the cause for the commission of the act. Miller has been sent to Winchester and placed in the hands of the civil authorities. The extent of the wound, and the result of injury, cannot at present be known. The ball entered the right shoulder and passed through. Yankee frigates off Fort Macon. The Wilmington (N. C.) Jo

The Attorney General of England on the Cotton crisis. [From the London Herald, Oct. 18.] On Tuesday night Sir William Artherton, Attorney General, and M. P. for Durham, addressed a meeting of his constituents in the Town Hall in that city. The chair was occupied by Mr. John Henderson. The Attorney General observed in his speech: Sir William next referred to the subject of the foreign policy of the country, citing and expressing his adhesion to the words employed by Eart Russell at the banquet in Newcastle on the previous evening. With reference to the American war, Earl Russell had observed that nothing but mischief would appear to be possible from a continuance of that war.
