overlaid with railroad iron, so fitted together as to present a smooth inclined surface, to be properly greased when ready for action. Its heavy guns, three in number, were fired through embrasures supplied with strong iron shutters.

This battery was erected at Cummings's Point, only thirteen hundred yards from Fort Sumter. Both Captain Hamilton's and Mr. Steven's batteries proved the wisdom of their inventors, and fully met General Beauregard's expectations. They were, in fact, the first experiments from which sprang all iron-clad war vessels and land batteries in the United States, and to them may be attributed most of the important changes and improvements since made in naval architecture and armaments. On the 6th of April, says General Doubleday, in his Reminiscences, Beauregard restricted our marketing to two days in the week. On the 7th

Washington, Oct. 16. --Col. Taylor, of the Thirty-third N. Y. Regiment, has been temporarily appointed to the command of Gen. Steven's brigade, the latter having been detached for important service elsewhere. Morrell Allen, of the N. Y. Thirty-fifth Regiment, Company H. was dangerously wounded to day by the rebel pickets, at Barrett's hill, beyond Falls Church. From the observatory at Upton's hill to-day a large rebel force, consisting of cavalry and d companies of infantry, were seen on the Leesburg turnpike, four miles from Falls Church.

Attempted murder. --A most diabolical attempt at murder was committed near Benton, Miss., a few ughts since. As Mr. Richard Boyd was returning home from town and had gone into his house, he heard some one calling him in the yard. He got up to answer the voice, when he saw two of his slaves. Andy and Steven standing in the yard, the latter having his double barrelied shot gun cocked and presented towards his head. He fired one barrel, the contents of which fractured his left arm severely and the other passed over his left shoulder, leaving one buck shot.

It appears that Thadens Stevens, of Pennsylvania in, was the leading spirit among the Sitars clique at the Republican congressional cause on Monday evening. Steven is the Mephistopheles of the gang, and is playing in the House exactly the same factions, disorganizing, fault trading perverse and anti-administration game that the traitor Breckinridge so effectually played out in the Senate last session.

--A few cases of an ordinary kind occupied his Honor an hour this morning. We merely state the following as a fair sample: Jonathan Dick, (colored,) brought up for stealing a carpet-bag. It appeared that he was employed to carry trunks and the carpet-bag from the depot to the hotel. The trunks came to hand, minus the carpet-bag. Jonathan admitted that he received the carpet-bag. It not appearing that any search had been made, the prisoner was remanded for further proceedings. Steven, (colored,) for breach of the peace Steven was arrested on Franklin street while trying to get into a quarrel with a white man. The fifty-two lashes he is to bear will teach him a lesson of forbearance and humility. James W. Masham, a soldier on furlough, found drunk, was dismissed without comment. Ben (colored) had secured an unclaimed pair of ducks in sight of a witness, and was found with a bottle of wine — of which profert was made — which he said he had bought at a blacksmith'

They then withdrew and in the direction of Welaka, in search of me naval stores, belonging to a man named Gardner. The naval stores, however, were previously destroyed. When within fifteen miles of the latter place, Capt. Steven's company of cavalry, who were in ambush, awaiting their approach at Horse Landing, poured volley into them, killing 12 of their number. The gunboats, after throwing several beat a hasty retreat, coming down the river to Orange Mill, where they obtained number, and, after making coffins, they buried their dead at Madison Point, below the Mill.
