est Eddyville. The troops were disembarked and proceeded to Saratoga, a few miles from Eddyville, where a fine cavalry company of Kentuckians, just formed by Captain Wilcox, were encamped, completely surprising and putting them to rout, and killing and wounding, it is supposed, some twenty-five or thirty of their number. The oth had their clothes actually riddled with balls, while their persons miraculously escaped injury. The pursuit was continued by the Yankees about two miles. Captain Wilcox was hit with a ball on the forehead, and although believed to be seriously, if not mortally, wounded, managed to ride two miles on his horse, and it is thought escaped the enemy. There were only about seventy-five of Capt. Wilcox's men in camp. They were surprised while the pickets had come in for breakfast, and before others had gone out to take their places. How long are these murderous, thieving Yankees to be permitted to thus infest our rivers, depredate upon our property, a

he object. The ram dropped astern, but soon gathered headway and ranged our port beam, receiving the fire of the port battery, some guns of which were discharged twice. It then ranged ahead, passing up the river, receiving the tire of the port battery of the Preble, disappearing in the darkness. Owing to the darkness, I was unable to see the effect of our shot upon her, but some officers are of opinion they heard shot strike the ram. I passed the Preble and stood up the river, when Acting-Master Wilcox reporting we were getting too close to the starboard shore, the helm was put up, and the ship rapdily fell off, presenting her broadside up and down the river. As soon as she had drifted near the head of the Passes, ineffectual attempts were made to get her head up stream, when I found myself a mile and a half down the Southwest Pass. I then put the helm up, continued down the river, hoping to be able to get her head round off Pilot Town. In doing this she drifted some distance bel

God grant that he may live to see our country again united! (Applause.) It is with pleasure that I stand here in the home of that man whose blood has baptized our great cause, for which he lies this night confined in a hostile dungeon.
