Carpenter and Neilson, the responsible editors and publishers of the same paper, refused to take the oath. The rebel schooner Eliza, loaded with salt and other contraband goods, was captured off Charleston, S. C., by the United States steamer Bienville. The Union pickets on Pinckney Island, near Hilton Head, S. C., were attacked by a superior force of rebel troops, and thirty-two of their number taken prisoners, three killed and three wounded.--A very large and enthusiastic war meeting was held at St. Louis, Mo., in the Mercantile Library-Hall, at which Gov. Gamble made the principal speech. He recommended a most vigorous war policy in the State, and deprecated the disposition to find fault with the policy of the Federal Government. He recommended the extermination of t

We yeddy so much ‘bout Gen'l Saxton. A crash, lit with the flame of a dozen flashes, followed; a hail of buckshot scattered the Federal picket. Running and falling, they took away the dead and wounded. Elliott leapt ashore, rifled the picket-house, and returned for another time. The picket at Pinckney Island was caught and put under guard. Elliott and Mickler, with detachments, started for the house. Night found them about its enclosure. A dread silence reigned as the two leaders posted their men and prepared for the assault. Surrender! rang through the old halls. The enemy, completely surprised, attempted to escape from windows and piazzas. Every avenue was cut off; they fell right and left as the terrible summons surrender was unheeded. Down the front steps, hand to hand, pistol t

commanding in that quarter, with a section of Wood's battery and all his troops south of the river, marched at once to Mrs. Sparkman's and boldly attacked the boats with rifles and battery. The enemy's force that had landed was compelled to re-embark, and the boats soon steamed down the river, shelling the banks on their way. Major Emanuel threw his mounted infantry forward at every available bluff, and gave the boats a spirited fight on their return to Georgetown. A picket force on Pinckney island was surprised and captured at dawn of the 21st of August, by Captains Elliott and Mickler. This was an incursion far into the enemy's lines, and at the risk of being cut off by his gunboats, which were in the immediate vicinity. The lieutenant commanding the Federal picket was killed, with 14 of his men, and 36 were captured, 4 of whom were wounded. The expedition left Bear island in nine boats, 120 strong, detachments from the Eleventh volunteers, Captains Mickler, Leadbetter and We

t. Subsequently he was ordered to Bay Point, the other side of Port Royal entrance being held by the German volunteers under Captain Wagener. There he fought a Federal fleet for two hours, until his guns were dismounted. After the Federals occupied the coast islands, he engaged in numerous daring raids. During one night he burned fourteen plantation settlements; again he surprised a picket post successfully, and in August, 1862, he commanded an expedition against a Federal force on Pinckney island, which was very successful and gained for him the unstinted commendation of his superiors. His activity also turned to the direction of inventing floating torpedoes, with which he blew up a tender in St. Helena bay. He was promoted to chief of artillery of the Third military district, including Beaufort, near where, in April, 1863, he captured the Federal steamer George Washington. Promotion followed to major and then to lieutenant-colonel. Twice he met the enemy in open field at Po

d with that command until his enlistment in the spring of 1861, as a private in Company B of the Ninth regiment, afterward known as the Eleventh. A year later, when the regiment enlisted for the war, he was elected captain of Company B, the rank in which the remainder of his service was given. As senior captain he was in command of the regiment for several months in the winter of 1864-65. He did his duty gallantly and ably in the engagements at Hilton Head, Pocotaligo, James island, Pinckney island, the bombardment of Fort Sumter in 1863, at Fort Johnson, Olustee and Baldwin, Fla., and then going with his regiment was distinguished in the severe fighting at Port Walthall Junction, Swift Creek, Drewry's bluff, the nineteen days fight at Bermuda Hundred, Clay's farm, Gaines' mill, Cold Harbor, Weldon railroad, Fort Harrison, Darbytown road, Charleston City road, receiving a wound in the left knee at Cold Harbor from which he has never fully recovered, another wound in the same leg a
Federal outrages. Augusta, Nov. 16. --The Charleston Courier, of yesterday morning, says that Federals have landed on Pinckney Island, (next to Hilton Head,) and seized a lot of negroes and placed them on board the fleet. The Federals fired on our pickets near Buckingham, on Thursday, but hurt no one. The Federal force is quite large.
