se's and Reynolds's battery of the First New-York artillery. I occupied Bolivar Heights with my troops, and Maryland Heights with the naval battery. On the same evening I sent two companies of Col. Maulsby's First Maryland regiment, under Major Steiner, to make a reconnoissance of Loudoun Heights, where it was reported the enemy were in position. They were fired upon whilst ascending, between nine and ten o'clock in the evening, by dismounted rebel cavalry concealed in the bushes on both sides of the road. Sergeant Mehiling, of company I, was killed. The fire was returned, with what effect is not known. Owing to the darkness of the night, Major Steiner returned. On Wednesday I shelled the heights from Battery Stanton, compelling the enemy to retire, as was proved by a subsequent reconnoissance. In the course of the morning, a reconnoissance in force was made toward Charlestown by the One Hundred and Eleventh Pennsylvania regiment, Col. Schlandecker, and the First Maryland

for warm clothing, which being made known through the Richmond Enquirer, large and liberal contributions were at once sent on from Virginia and the South. Over $20,000 worth of supplies of clothes and money was thus collected in a few weeks. Richmond was foremost in the work. Virginia, ever liberal, exceeded herself, and the whole South lavished generosity. Wherever there was a group of Maryland people they took pride in supplying their kindred in the field. Colonel George Schley and Dr. Steiner, of Augusta, Ga., sent Colonel Johnson $1,100 from themselves and other Marylanders. A gentleman of New Orleans, born in Prince George's, sent General Johnson $1,000. Hundreds of the sons of the old land, scattered through the Confederacy, sent their contributions until at last it was necessary to decline any further additions to the treasury. The clothing and blankets thus collected supplied the regiment to some extent during the remainder of the time it was in service. In December

ained in statu quo, and he did not gain the hill until the Confederate center had yielded to Thomas, when Gen. Morgan L. Smith's division advanced and found the heights before him vacant except for the mingled Northern and Southern wounded and dead. In this splendid fight Colonel Slaughter, the last regimental commander of Cumming's brigade, was wounded. Captains Morgan and Grice commanded the Fifty-sixth and Thirty-sixth regiments in the charge. In the last advance Captain Cody and Lieutenant Steiner, of Cumming's staff, were badly wounded. The Georgians of Bate's brigade shared in the distinguished service of Breckinridge's division under Bate's command, in repelling the attacks upon their front, and in forming a second line after the first was abandoned. Colonel Rudler, Thirty-seventh Georgia, took command of the brigade after Colonel Tyler was killed, and was himself badly wounded and carried from the field, during the heroic struggle after dark which saved the rear guard o

h, of Mauch Chunk, and Robert Nichols, conductor. The car leaving the track, stopped the engine so suddenly that the bell rope connecting it with the cars did not break, and it was used for hauling the car, which was floating with the top about two feet above the water, to the shore. Axes were then procured and a hole cut in the top, from which all the passengers were taken alive, except those mentioned above. Mr. Reuben Young, residing at Lockport, had the cap of his knee broken, and a Mr. Steiner had his nose broken. Some others were slightly hurt. An accident occurred on the Pennsylvania Central Railroad, on Thursday. The Express train, which left Pittsburg in the morning, ran into the rear of a freight train, which was standing on the track at the Blairsville intersection, fifty-four miles from Pittsburg.--The collision took place at a few minutes before six o'clock, and resulted in the maiming of the conductor and fireman, and in the complete demolition of six freight c
Georgia Hospital and relief Association. --An association has been formed in Augusta, Ga., the object of which is to establish a Purveyor's Department at Gordonsville, Va. a central hospital at some other point, and three "flying hospitals," one at Manassas, one at Yorktown, and one at Monterey. The Augusta Constitutionalist says: Upon inquiry, we learn that the flying hospital at Manassas, Va., has been placed under the charge of Dr. Steiner, of this city, and completes equipments sent forward by the Directors in this city; that complete equipments have also been sent forward for the flying hospital at Monterey, in care of Mr. H J. Sibley, of this city, who will report to the medical officer of the U. S. Army in charge there; and that the equipments for the third flying hospital are in progress. We learn, also, that the South Carolina Railroad has furnished for the use of the Hospital Association a car or crate, according as the exigency may require. It will be re
14, has the following paragraph in regard to the prevalence of that dreadful disease, typhoid fever, which has been so fatal among our troops: An incident which came under my own observation a few days ago, would seem to justify the conclusion, that the typhoid fever, which has prevailed to so great an extent among the troops, is not the result of camp life so much as of a peculiar condition of the atmosphere. I had occasion last week to visit a retired farm-house, in company with Dr. Steiner, of your city, who is attached to Gen. Toombs' Brigade as a volunteer. While there, we learned that the family consisted of eight whites and seven blacks, and that of the whites, five had had the fever, and of the blacks, four, Other families through the country had suffered in like manner, and some to the same extent. The neighborhood was represented to have been exempt from the fever heretofore, except a few scattering cases, in as many years. This particular family was living some d

y for paying the men was brought into camp and they were to receive it without delay. Incidents at Frederick. The New York Tribune has some "incidents" at Frederick, Md., which are interesting. It says: It is said that the entire stock of boots and shoes in Frederick were bought out by the rebels, who left behind them some good money and some shocking bad money. The storekeepers, of course, did not dare to refuse what was offered them. The entire stocks of Messrs. Tyler & Steiner, (Union,) and A. J. Delashman, (rebel,) were taken, and Confederate notes given them in payment. So far as we can ascertain they allowed free ingress and egress to and from the town. The pickets on the road appear to have their stationed merely to watch military movements, and paid no attention to civilians. On Friday evening, before the appearance of the rebels, there was considerable of a disturbance in Frederick. Some parties connected with the Citizen newspaper cheered on th
