as before stated, by Gens. McBride and Harris, and by part of Gen. Steen's command under Col. Boyd and Major Winston, were rudely fortified by our soldiers, who threw up breastworks as well as they could with their slender means. On the morning of the 20th inst., I caused a number of hemp bales to be transported to the river heights, where movable breastworks were speedily constructed out of them by Gens. Harris and McBride, Col. Rives, and Major Winston, and their respective commands. Capt. Kelly's battery (attached to Gen. Steen's division) was ordered at the same time to the position occupied by Gen. Harris's force, and quickly opened a very effective fire, under the direction of its gallant captain, upon the enemy. These demonstrations, and particularly the continued advance of the hempen breastworks, which were as efficient as the cotton bales at New Orleans, quickly attracted the attention and excited the alarm of the enemy, who made more daring attempts to drive us back.

ort Pickens in a skiff about two and a half months ago. Dyson is a first-rate mason and bricklayer, and has worked on the Government forts at Pensacola for the last twenty years. The third is a young colored married woman, about twenty-five years old, who was owned by Cole Crosby, and hired out to a Mrs. Wm. O'Brien, at Pensacola. She left with two men in a sloop, and while beating up for Fort Pickens was fallen in with by the Colorado, and taken on board, and to the fort; her name is Olive Kelly, and she has been at the fort about a month. From the three we glean the folowing: Between three and four A. M. firing was heard about two miles from the fort, beyond Wilson's camp; and it appeared subsequently, by information got from the prisoners, that a deserter, who had been paid off from Pickens two days previous, had given such information to the Confederates as induced them to land on the inside beach and cross over to the south beach, and so come upon Wilson's camp suddenly, wit

district, and one regiment of infantry, under command of Colonel Jeff. Patton, and one battalion of cavalry, under command of Colonel Childs, from the Fourth district. I delivered your orders to the above commands to hasten to this point (Lexington) with as much despatch as possible. They marched forthwith, and reached the Missouri River about four o'clock in the evening, when Colonel Boyd's artillery and battalion and baggage were crossed to the south side, where he took his position, Captain Kelly planting his artillery so as completely to command the river. The crossing continued all night without interruption, every officer and man using his best exertions. We received news during the night that the enemy would be in the town of Liberty — about six miles distant from the Blue Mills Ferry — at an early hour the ensuing morning. We were crossing in three small flats and much time was necessary to move the large train of a hundred wagons. Colonel Childs, with his command, had t
sure regiment: fifteen missing from one company. We learn, in addition, that Dr. Buist, of Charleston, was killed by the explosion of a shell in Fort Walker, while dressing the wounds of a soldier. Lieut. T. H. Smack, of the South Carolina Volunteers, was struck in the leg, below the knee, rendering amputation necessary. The total number killed in the fort was about fifteen. In Capt. Reid's company of regulars there were sixteen killed, wounded, and missing, out of forty-eight. Private Kelly, while working one of the guns in the fort, had his head shot off. Capt. Reid's company, immediately on landing, pushed through the enemy's fire into the fort, and worked the guns of their battery in an admirable manner for four hours, and were highly complimented by the Commanding General. They drew their brass pieces on retiring twelve miles, and then abandoned them. Capt. Wagner's company of artillery was also engaged in working the batteries, and behaved with the utmost coolness an
ty-ninth Illinois, having received their arms, are now here, posted in a strong position, anxiously awaiting an opportunity to repel the enemy or cooperate with Gen.

In a few days the wires will connect. Lamon's brigade (the First Virginia regiment) consists of three companies of cavalry, now with General Kelly; four companies of infantry, and two companies of artillery, under Colonel Leonard. The latter have volunteered to act as riflemen until their batteries are r Conode is a Unionist, and was absent from home at the time. Sharpsburg, Dec. 22 1861. Captain Howes battery of the Fourth regular artillery arrived here to-night, en route from Romney to Washington.

With any considerable force at Camp Pickens (Manassas), would this regiment either have been stopped en route, or the effective men of six companies only ordered up as a reserve?

hen in my drawing enough votes from the Democratic party from the State of New York to prevent its throwing its vote for Cleveland. I was supported by the strongest man, the one of the greatest influence that I knew in the State of New York, Mr. John Kelly, who represented the opposition to Mr. Cleveland. Election day came, and there were votes enough thrown for me several times over to have prevented Mr. Cleveland's election, but in many of the polling-places they were counted not for me, but for Cleveland, and so the electoral ticket for the State of New York was counted for him by a few hundred votes only. At first I intended to have an investigation made to prove the facts I have stated, as could have been done; but Mr. Kelly was taken sick almost immediately after the election and could not attend to business. With him to aid me I could have proven the case; without him I could not bring in the witnesses against the great influence of a successful administration and would
