w-Orleans; fought the batteries of Vicksburgh twice; was in the memorable attack on Port Hudson on the fourteenth of March, 1863; was captain of a nine-inch gun in the naval nine-inch gun battery, commanded by Lieutenant Commander Edward Terry, placed in rear of Port Hudson during the siege of that place in 1863; he was also captain of a gun in the naval battery established at Baton Rouge, and commanded by Lieutenant Commander Edward Terry, after the repulse of the army and the death of General Williams at that place. 7. Walter E. Smith (ordinary seaman) is recommended for coolness and good conduct at the rifle one-hundred pounder on the top-gallant forecastle, and for musket-firing into the gun-ports of the rebel iron-clad Tennessee in the action in Mobile Bay on the morning and forenoon of August fifth, 1864. He was on board the United States steamer Hatteras when that vessel was sunk by the piratical vessel commanded by the notorious Semmes off Galveston; joined the Richmond, af
s in East-Tennessee: The affair at Rogersville, East-Tennessee, affords some mitigation of the general ignoring of the campaign there. A series of movements of the most unfortunate and disgraceful character, illustrated by the retreat of General Williams, glorious to him and his command, but wholly shameful to those responsible for his exposed position, the only other matter of commendation, justifies this sweeping phrase. A true relation of these will, doubtless, fill a dark page in histor-General Jones, accordingly, was directed to put his brigade in motion, so as to bring himself, on Thursday evening, within a night's march, by the south side of Holston River, down the valley of Buck Creek; while Colonel Giltner, commanding Brigadier-General Williams's brigade, was to move from Kingsport and its vicinity, on the north side of the river. During the afternoon of the fifth Colonel Giltner concentrated his command, and went into camp at Kingsport, and ordered his force to move at
two of the guards, wounded five, pillaged seven wagons and burned five, and captured two hundred horses. It was a bold, daring act; but the train was some two miles in length, and a guard of only seventy-five men to protect it. As soon as the General got the news, he sent the Third Virginia in pursuit, if possible to overtake them; but the rebels had six hours start, and with their knowledge of the country, but a slight prospect of overtaking them. This evening we camped on the farm of Mrs. Williams, who has a son with McNeil, and she, with her daughters, are bitter secesh. But we found corn and hay in abundance, and that was what our horses needed, so we used it. The morning of the seventeenth we started for New-Creek, where we arrived in the afternoon, and where our ears were gladdened by the music of the steam-whistles on the locomotives of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. It is refreshing to hear the sounds, to see sights, and witness the customs of civilization, in contr

which fired into a Government boat below Tiptonville, about three months ago. Another one, Lewis Claims, belongs to Faulkner's command. Gregg says he was a private in Merriweather's gang, but deserted him when Merriweather went South. George Moore, also member of the same party, formerly of the army of Clayton, we have no particular information of, but he was found with the rest at Lewis's house. Lewis is a paroled prisoner, and was formerly a captain in the Fifteenth Tennessee volunteers, of the rebel army, and states that during the last six months the guerrillas have eaten over two hundred dollars' worth of provisions at his house. He has a pass from General Quimby, formerly commanding this district. Of the captured horses eight have been sent to Columbus. At nearly every house we visited, we found guns, which we destroyed. The prisoners will be examined and sent to Captain Williams. M. E. Rings, Captain Company C, Thirty-fourth New-Jersey Infantry, Commanding Post.

ing to and fro like a drunken man in the thoroughfares of the Southern capital. The Mayor's patience having become exhausted by these repeated violations of moral and civil law, could no more extend the hand of clemency, and on yesterday the unfortunate Barnes was committed to jail for want of a friend to become his surety in the sum of $100. Three free negro women, named Eliza A. Smithers, Louisa Jenkins, and Mary Thomas, who, it seems, are in the habit of carrying dirk knives and cowhides about their persons, were up yesterday for threatening to "kill and beat" Rebecca Williams. If the charge is sustained, it will develop a most atrocious disposition on the part of the prisoners, inasmuch as even a Cannibal would be satisfied with beating first and killing afterwards. The case was continued until to-day. Edward Sullivan, a small boy, arrested for drunkenness, was discharged from custody with some good advice from the Mayor, which the hopeful youth will do well to heed.
Yankees in Mathews county. We have been allowed to make the following extract from a private letter, written by a lady in Mathews county, and dated November 28th, from which it will be seen that the Yankees have been predating in that county. The writer says: The Yankee gunboats came up East river on Sunday last, landed forces at Williams's wharf, from (with their negro guides) visited the and works and destroyed them, together with the action hand burned several vessels which were in the river, carried away with them a great many belonging to the citizens, and several negro I am fearful they will commit other depredations on our defenseless county this winter, as we entirely in their power, but, it they will allow us to do so, we can get along very well, doing our own spinning, weaving our own cloth, making our etc. The Yankees say that they have no objection to our making salt for our own use, but that we must not make it for the "Richmond market."
ere brought up for threatening to shoot Samuel Motley, a free negro. It appeared that the parties entered Motley's restaurant, on 8th street, below the Spots wood House, and called for liquor, which he said he was unable to furnish. They thereupon, hoping to force from him liquor by threats, pulled out their pistols and told him to prepare for death. A policeman appearing meanwhile, the paries were marched off to the cage. The Recorder committed them as disturbers of the peace. Rebecca Williams and Rachael Armistead, two free negroes, were arraigned for fighting together in the street, to the disturbance of the public peace. Each one was ordered 25 lashes. The examination of Michael Sweeny, charged with robbing Patrick Greenan of ten one dollar Confederate Treasury notes, was continued until the 3d December, on account of the absence of witnesses.
