the porch of one house that had four or five shells through it. In one house off to the left both father and son were killed by a shell. Kilpatrick said our regiment never did so well before, which is saying a great deal. Colonel Karhouse, who commands the regiment, manoeuvred it ably. Colonel Davies handled his brigade splendidly, as all remarked, and as the result proved. We encamped at night on Stony Mountain, in a drenching shower of rain, and slept soundly on the wet ground. Doctor Kingston, our surgeon, showed himself a brave and skilful man, and our wounded got the best of attention. A rebel narrative. Richmond, Sept. 14, 1863. The following is an accurate statement of what transpired in Culpeper. About three o'clock on Sunday morning information was conveyed to the cavalry — that the enemy were preparing to cross at Stark's Ford, some eight miles above our forces, and at Kelly's some five miles below them; and that they would no doubt be cooperated with by
n the eleventh, moved to Rome, and pushed Garrard's cavalry and the Twenty-third corps, under General Cox, across the Oostenaula, to threaten the flanks of the enemy passing north. Garrard's cavalry drove a cavalry brigade of the enemy to and beyond the Narrows, leading into the valley of the Chattooga, capturing two field-pieces and taking some prisoners. The enemy had moved with great rapidity, and made his appearance at Resaca; and Hood had in person demanded its surrender. I had from Kingston reinforced Resaca by two regiments of the army of the Tennessee. I at first intended to move the army into the Chattooga valley, to interpose between the enemy and his line of retreat down the Coosa, but feared that General Hood would, in that event, turn eastward by Spring Place, and down the Federal Road, and therefore moved against him at Resaca. Colonel Weaver, at Resaca, afterward reenforced by General Raum's brigade, had repulsed the enemy from Resaca, but he had succeeded in breaki

Strough, chaplain Thirty-seventh North Carolina Regiment: In our retreat from Newberne, North Carolina, when overpowered by the superior force of the enemy, we lost nearly all the Testaments, etc., we had, and have not since been able to secure anything to read except fifteen small volumes presented to us by Kingston Baptist Church. Our regiment is now in four different directions, hence the chaplain cannot be with them all. Before we left North Carolina there were 137 in the regiment penitently inquiring after the Saviour. Rev. W. G. Margrave: Besides laboring here and there in the camps and hospitals, I have paid special attention to the sick in Lewisburg. Just before I left home, I visited a sick soldier and read to him the fourteenth chapter of the Gospel of John. He said, I have but one more

d pressed; Kautz came back to its assistance and succeeded in relieving it, but only after a desperate and sanguinary struggle. Toward nightfall he was finally able to regain the banks of the Cumberland. A few days later a Federal column commanded by Colonel Sanders crossed this river higher up for the purpose of attempting a much bolder and more important reconnoissance. Traversing the whole Cumberland plateau, Sanders had suddenly made his appearance in East Tennessee, passed between Kingston and Clinton, reached and destroyed the railroad at Lenoir Station; then, making a feint in the direction of Knoxville, had passed north of that city, cut the railroad once more at Strawberry Plains and at Mossy Creek, and finally re-entered Kentucky by way of Barton village. General Burnside had ordered these reconnoissances in order to pave the way for the army he was to lead during the summer into East Tennessee—a country which, as we have already stated, had remained faithful at heart t
hat a loan for the United States Government had been placed upon the Stock Exchange? If so, was this in accordance with our principles of non-intervention? Lord Palmerston replied that he personally cognizant of the matters to the honorable member referred, but, that, should they arise, they would, of course, be dealt with by the Government. Kingston, Canada, to be made a naval station.[from the London post, Government Organ] Advices from Canada, of the 19th ult, mention that Kingston, in addition to being a military station, is soon to be made a naval one also. It is said that an army and flotilla (consistent with treaty stipulations) will be employed upon Canadian waters. This contemplated measure appears to afford satisfaction there. Several vessels of war are preparing to leave England for the American coast. German anxiety respecting the war issue.

During night before last and yesterday squads of prisoners were brought in, captured at various points along the line. The number that had reached the Libby up to 7 o'clock last night was about 140, of whom there were but three officers. These were Lt.-Col. Litchfield and Capt. Clarke, of the 7th Michigan cavalry, and Surgeon Kingston, of the 2d N. Y. cavalry. The prisoners captured represent twelve different regiments, but tell very conflicting stores about their numbers engaged in the raid; but all concur in the statement that it was designed for the liberation of the prisoners now in our hands. A sergeant who was brought in on Tuesday night, had in his haversack two silver teaspoons and a silver fork, on which are engraved the initials "J. M. M." This fellow had also a small china dish, of a very pretty pattern.
er such conditions. How then is he to prevent our destruction of his road? He can do it only by attacking and destroying our army. He cannot defend the road between Kingston and Chattanooga without leaving Atlanta and putting his army between Kingston and Rome. This involves the abandonment of Atlanta. But this is not all. If he puts his army between Kingston and Chattanooga, we can then strike it in Wills' Valley, near Bridgeport, and destroy it there. He cannot defend all points at once.Kingston and Chattanooga, we can then strike it in Wills' Valley, near Bridgeport, and destroy it there. He cannot defend all points at once. Even on the road from Kingston to Chattanooga he cannot defend all points. If he divides his army between several points, thus divided it cannot resist. If he masses it at Kingston, we can strike the road near Dalton. If he masses his army at Dalton, we can strike the road near Kingston, and so on. Neither dispersion nor concentration will avail him. Our line is perpendicular to his, and opposite to the centre of his line from Bridgeport to Atlanta.--We can strike any part of his line for o
