May 21. To-day the battle of Philips's Creek, Mississippi, was fought by the second division of General Halleck's army, commanded by Brig.-Gen. Thomas A. Davies. The rebels were routed, leaving a good many prisoners, guns, haversacks, blankets, etc., in the hands of the Unionists.--(Doc. 113.) Commodore Prentiss, with the United States steamer Albatross, penetrated the interior waters of South-Carolina as far as Georgetown, and up the Waccamaw River ten miles above the city, but having an insufficient force, he did not make an attack. General Stoneman, in company with Prof. Lowe, made a balloon reconnoissance this morning, from Gaines's Mills, Va., and reaching an altitude of five hundred feet, obtained a complete view of Richmond with the aid of a glass. Very few rebel troops were visible within the limits of the city, but at the left of it, on the line of the road leading to Bottom's Bridge, a large number were seen. At one o'clock, to-day, two mortars opened

id to have been a relative of the other Charlotte Corday, the heroine of the French Revolution. To this couple were born six children, the eldest being Esther, our mother's great-grandmother, the youngest, Francis, who was to become the Swamp fox of Revolutionary days. Esther Marion has been called the Queen Bee of the Marion hive; she had fifteen children, and her descendants have multiplied and spread in every direction. She was twice married, first to John Allston, of Georgetown, or Waccamaw, secondly to Thomas Mitchell, of Georgetown. The only one of the fifteen children with whom we have concern is Sarah Mitchell, the Grandma Cutler of Julia Ward's childhood.

Dr. Hyrne lived but a short time, and four years after his death the twenty-year-old widow married Benjamin Clarke Cutl

The Turf. --The races at the New Market Course, near Petersburg, Va., commenced Tuesday.

Racing in the West. --A correspondent of the Spirit of the Times, writing from Louisiana, and referring to the Metairie Spring meeting, says: Some new drafts from Kentucky have already joined Col. Richards, to be trained for the spring campaign, which opens brilliantly on the 28th of March, with a hand to hand contest between Waccamaw and Costa Diva, the odds being $1,500 on the latter against $1,000 on the former, with a forfeit of $225 on the side that fails to take the field on the day of battle. Should the South Carolina champion come all the way to New Orleans to meet his opponent, it will, as it ought to do, make him a great favorite. We hear the Ascension nag has been reserved especially for this contest, and is moving and looking like a bird. On the same day comes off the Lessee's Stake, a poststake for all ages, three mile heats, $250 subscription, p. p., with $1,000 to be added by the Lessee. This will be a very interesting affair; and may be the means of

He was beautifully uniformed. Yankee depredations. The Charleston Mercury says: A private letter has been received in the city, giving some interesting accounts doings of the Yankee gunboats in the neighborhood of Georgetown. It appears that the gunboats ascended the Waccamaw river for distance of eight miles, stopping at the presentation of the Hon. J. Izard Middleton. There they made fast to the wharf, and began wanton shelling of every portion of the promises. Mr. Middleton was absent at the time and his family just succeeded in escaping time, through the exertions of the mi Daggett. The negroes, also, all fled at of the invaders, excepting four joined the Yankees. One of these latter escaped from the enemy, and turned to the plantation. The marauders en
