ifferent points to reinforce the Western army. There were no passengers from Manager yesterday, the trains having failed to contact in consequence of the breaking down of a small bridge at Rappabannock station by a passing freight train, on Wednesday night. No person was injured by the accident, but the cars were considerably smashed up. We learn from a gentleman who arrived from at 11 o'clock on Thursday night, that Gen. Beauregard was at Fairfax Court-House, and Generals Johnston and Smith were a mile or two below. The health of the troops was rapidly improving, and systematic measures had been adopted to prevent disease in the camps. Lowe's balloon was seen from Manson's Hill on Tuesday afternoon. The pickets continued to fire upon each other at intervals. A painful rumor prevailed at Winchester a Wednesday that the gallant Capt. Turner Ashby was killed the night before, between Hallown and Harper's Ferry. The York river train yesterday brought up an individual un
loss is supposed to be about 800 killed and wounded. [Quite a likely tale.] A correct report from Jefferson City says, instead of 200 men en route for Quincy, 2,000 of Mulligan's command was sent over by the rebels, released on parole, and are en route for Quincy. Claiborne Jackson is at Lexington with the rebel forces. The account of the battle at Blue Mills, forwarded last night, is derived from official dispatches written on the spot, and therefore can be relied on. Col. Smith's command was to leave Blue Mills for St. Josephs the day after the battle. Gen. Price and his army will move down the river, and, unless checked or defeated, attack Booneville, and then Jefferson City. Col. Mulligan released on parole. Chicago, Sept. 23. --A special dispatch from Quincy, to the Journal, says that Col. Mulligan has been released on parole, and will be here this evening. He will remain until Gen. Frement's orders are received. General Prentiss has te
eavy force, are said to be advancing against the place. The women and children of that place are being sent away. Everything indicates an approaching struggle. Gen. McClernard will issue to-morrow a proclamation causing all drinking and gambling houses to cease operations. Louisville, Wednesday, Oct. 9.--The city is quiet. We have no news from below. Another important advance.--Lewinsville occupied. About 6 o'clock this morning, the division under the command of General Smith, at the Chain bridge, advanced and occupied prominent positions in the neighborhood of Lewinsville. On the advance arriving at Langley's, the hitherto outposts of our army, the division was divided — a portion of them continuing up the Little Rock Run Turnpike, and occupying Prospect Hill, the other part of the division taking the new artillery road, and occupying Smoth's and Maxwell's hills, a mile and a half this side of Lewinsville. The batteries were drawn up in prominent positions
d on our side, and after harassing them for a time, they were left to enjoy their stolen beef. For some time they have been rather saucy, and have crowded considerably on our line of pickets. It is with pleasure that I can record a report current here that Brigadier General Longstreet has been made a Major General, and that he has been assigned to an important command. Although entirely unacquainted with General Longstreet, I hear him spoken of in terms of great praise. His command of the advance will probably devolve upon General Stuart. A reorganization of the army, as regards States, is now going on, which bids fair to be a very important move. Whether intended or not, it meets with the evident probably of the men. Cha es are constantly going on, but they are not of a nature that would interest the public. This morning the 20th Georgia Regiments, Colonel Smith was attached from General Longstreet's brigade and attached to General Early's. Au revoir. Bohemian.
From Washington. Memphis, Oct. 13. --Special dispatches appear in the Western papers received, with dates from Washington to the 9th inst. They state that the imbroglio between Fremont and Blair continues, and that two of the Blairs are still prisoners. The Potomac river is very full, preventing the passing of the Confederates. A Federal reconnaissance reports that the rebels are at least 100,000 strong, and are occupying their former positions. Gen. Smith has advanced from the Chain Bridge, and is now occupying Lewinsville.
d thirty-five cars, and has made arrangements for from twenty to forty more cars to put on that line. He will be able to surrender the road to Col. Branner, on his restoration to health, in good working order, and fully prepared to performing share of duty as one of the links in this important railway line. While, from the causes stated, there was an unavoidable "accumulation of freight at Knoxville and Chattanooga," it is not true that soldiers' clothing had been detained. --Major Wallace, notwithstanding the more than double labor imposed on him, made it his special business to see that soldiers' clothing, blankets, shoes, guns, and ammunition went forward between Dalton and Chattanooga and Bristol without delay, the truthfulness of which will be attested by all who passed over those roads in charge of these articles. This statement of facts is made as a simple act of justice to those who are likely to suffer by the wrongs of others. S. A. Smith, Geo. W. Bradfield.
Maryland Refugees. --A number of Baltimorean have recently arrived in this city by is very circuitous and dangerous route, occupying two weeks in the accomplishment of the journey. They had been marked by the Federals as men who sympathized with the Southern movement, and but for their timely escape would doubtless have been arrested are this. The party consists of John F. C. Offutt. J. Pierson Wight, S. D. Fletcher, Capt. Timothy Webster. Wm. Cooper, James Cooper, Anthony P. Ross, Joseph Lowenbach, Lewis Lowubach, Lew is Smith, Capt. Joseph Scott, and James Ford. Two of the number, Messrs. Offait and Fletcher, belonged to Marshal Kane's police, every member of which is regarded with suspicion by Lincoln's Government Several of the party have families in Baltimore.
for the winter. Food for the horses and mules (of which there are 80,000 attached to the Federal army) is not abundant, and it is difficult to keep up the requisite supply for such a vast number of animals. Hay is the great desideratum, and How brings from $1 to $1,25 per hundred pounds. The militia of the District of Columbia, in view of the times, is beginning to show itself on parade. Under the law requiring it, the parades of the 39 and 4th regiments were held by Cols Bright and Smith on the 17th inst., on their respective regimental grounds and marched to the eastern Capitol Grounds, forming the 2d brigade, under command of Brig. Gen. Hickey by whom it was reviewed. The 1st regiment of the District militia also has orders to parade on the 11th of November. Its chief officers are Col. Bacon and Lt. Col. English Latterly, instruction of officers of different regiments has taken place at the Columbian Armory, under Brigade Major and Inspector Mares. Our best resident citi
by all a very superior officer and a most excellent disciplinarian. When the foe comes he, and those under his command, will be found ready. Considerable excitement has prevailed in this place, and the country surrounding, for several weeks, in expectation of an attack from the enemy at Old Point. The number of war steamers, gunboats and barges continue to increase; but up to this time it is unknown at what point they are to operate.--Many suppose the attack will be in the vicinity of Smith field, or Burwell's Bay, with a view of getting possession of the Seaboard and Norfolk and Petersburg Railroads at or near this town. The future must reveal their intentions. The Christian Conference is to commence on Wednesday next at Carrsville, 13 miles above Suffolk, on the Seaboard Railroad. This denomination is numerous in this part of the State, and a large gathering is anticipated. The Methodist Protestant Conference is to meet next week at Chuckatuck, 10 miles from Suffo
t be removed, remained at the farm-house on the island, and multitudes were left dead and dying on the bank of the Old Domission, their groans waking mournful echoes from the hills and woods. The officers have suffered severely. There is no way of ascertaining the actual number of casualties. Another interesting statement. The New York World has a statement from its correspondent, written from memoranda furnished by Captain Young, and said to be confirmed in all its details by Major Smith, of the California regiment. We copy a portion of it, as follows: At four o'clock our whole force had crossed and ascended, Col. Baker and staff with the rest, and the troops were suffering somewhat from the concealed enemy's fire. Many had dropped and been carried down the hill. We asked Col. Baker what he thought of affairs. He said that he thought we had a good position; could fall back for shelter behind the ridge. "Yes," said we, "but what's in those woods?" He answere
