ned to John Weiss's paper on Portia. He was twice on the platform at the Music Hall when Mr. Bradlaugh, M. P., was the lecturer (Wendell Phillips in the chair on one occasion), and declined the call of the audience at the close of the lecture. He was one of J. B. Smith's guests in Bulfinch Street at a dinner for Mr. Bradlaugh, where also at the table were H. L. Pierce, Mr. Hooper, Ex-Governor Emory Washburn, William Lloyd Garrison, and Thomas Russell. He took the chair at a lecture by Edward Jenkins, the English writer, and was warmly applauded when he rose to introduce one whom he commended as an author who by his remarkable pen has drawn attention to the poor and lowly, awakened for then a widespread sympathy, and helped the reign of justice on earth. Many of his fellow-citizens then saw him for the last time. An incident of the autumn was his election as a member of the Massachusetts historical Society, of which Mr. Winthrop was president, where he took the vacant place of th
atives and wish the garrison a good morning. A cry was suddenly heard in the barracks; in about two minutes, Schlosser, the commanding officer, was seized, and all the garrison, excepting three men, The number of the garrison appears from Edward Jenkins to Major Gladwin, 1 June, 1763. Eleven men killed and three taken prisoners with the officer. were massacred. Particulars regarding the loss of St. Joseph's, &c. They massacred all the garrison except three men, in about two minutes, and pe Indian village near Fort Ouatanon, just below Lafayette, in Indiana; the next morning the commander was lured into an Indian cabin and bound, and his garrison surrendered. The French, moving the victors to clemency by gifts of wampum, Lieutenant Jenkins to Major Gladwin, Ouatanon, 1 June, 1763. received the prisoners into their houses. At Michilimackinac, a spot of two acres on the main land, west of the strait, was inclosed with pickets, and gave room for the cabins of a few traders, and
uffered but little. Just before sundown, and when the right of the enemy gave way, they were ordered to charge the batteries in their front, which they executed in gallant style, led by Gen. Bonham in person. When the charge was made, the enemy promptly retired, and the loss of those regiments was small. They pursued the enemy to Centreville, and took near one million dollars' worth of Federal property. It is believed that none of those regiments were killed, and but few wounded. Col. Jenkins' (S. C.) Regiment was in Gen. Jones' Brigade, and was situated some distance to the right of the general line near where the railway crosses Bull's Run. They were not in the fight until late in the afternoon, when they made an unsuccessful attempt to storm the battery on the extreme left of the enemy's line. In this gallant charge they suffered considerably, but the particulars, as to the killed and wounded, are not yet ascertained. I have not yet been able to obtain detailed repor
though the place was immediately on Scarry Creek. Our detachment of 700 or 800 men was attacked by 3,000 Ohio troops, who were soon repulsed with great loss. Our loss was two killed and five wounded. One of the former was a man named Welch, whose head was shot off by a cannon ball. We took a good many prisoners, including three Colonels, five Captains and one Lieutenant, killed fifty or sixty, and wounded about the same number. When the enemy retreated he was pursued some distance by Capt. Jenkins' Cavalry company. The Blues were not in the engagement, being stationed some four miles distant, on the opposite side of the river. The company, we are gratified to learn, are doing well, although our correspondent thinks they have done more hard marching than any other company in Virginia. In the skirmish on Tuesday, Capts. Brock, Caskie and Becket's mounted companies were engaged, or detachments of them. The letter before us says that eighteen of the enemy were killed. A m
e steamer Georgiana, Capt. Pierson, arrived on Saturday morning from Old Point Comfort, with a number of passengers. She brought intelligence that Dr. T. E. Rawillegs, correspondent of the New York Commercial Advertiser; Captain Holliday, Capt. Edward Jenkins, Lieut. Small and private Small, of the Naval Brigade, and R. Shurtliff, left Hampton on Friday morning about 1 o'clock, on a scouting expedition. About daylight they were surprised by a party of Confederates near New Market, and at the f, being best known as the chief correspondent of Frank Leslie's Illustrated newspaper. He visited England at the time of the prize fight at Farnsborough.] Fortress Monroe, July 20.--A spy, who is just in from Great Bethel, reports that Captain Jenkins and Shurtliff were wounded yesterday and carried off as prisoners. The rebels had two killed. A company of Massachusetts men made a scout last night to Great Bethel. They report only fifty light horse at that point, but say that the C
