in our army, and five company officers wounded, one (Captain Samuel Jackson) mortally. It lost about fifty men wounded and six killed, one of whom (Sergeant T. A. Johnson) was particularly distinguished for gallantry. The command of this regiment now devolved upon Major G. M. Crawford. The Seventeenth Tennessee regiment had one officer killed and two officers and twenty men wounded. Colonel N. B. Granbury, of the Seventh Texas, Major S. H. Colmes, of the First Tennessee battalion, and Major Lowe, of the Twenty-third Tennessee regiment were severely wounded. The Twenty-third Tennessee lost, in all, one officer and five men killed, five officers wounded, and fifty-eight men wounded and captured. The losses of the other regiments are not reported in this connection. Captain Jackson, of the Forty-fourth Tennessee regiment, has since died of his wounds. Known to me long and familiarly in youth and manhood as Captain Samuel Jackson has been, I feel unable to do justice to his many v

ia. At the least puff of wind each of these monsters would give a sudden jerk, compelling those who held them captive to stand on tip-toe, and to perform, in spite of themselves, some of the strangest evolutions. Although expensive, difficult of transportation, and of doubtful service, this instrument was not without its usefulness, especially during a siege, when, elevated at leisure, it could communicate the most valuable information concerning the enemy's works. Thus, before Yorktown, Mr. Lowe, the operator, who carried an electric apparatus in the car and communicated by means of a wire with the Federal batteries, could indicate the result of their fire and enable them to correct their aim. At the same time he discerned the position of all the enemy's pieces with a precision which an inspection after the evacuation of the place fully confirmed. But it would be wrong to rely upon so capricious an auxiliary; for on the day of battle, when its assistance is needed to discover the

ounced the approach of the Federals he sent for Wise, who, as we have seen, had remained in the vicinity of New River. The brigade of Benham, composed of the Tenth, Twelfth, and Thirteenth Ohio regiments, commanded by Colonels Lytle, Smith, and Lowe, was at the head of the Federal column. Lytle is the first to descend into the wooded ravine which extends to the foot of the enemy's positions. He is hardly in sight of these when he is received by a well-sustained fire. After a few shots he eed the fight of their own accord, and the reconnaissance assumed the proportions of a regular battle. The Twelfth Ohio became separated in the wood, and the largest portion of that regiment proceeded to take a position on the right of the Tenth. Lowe led it to the assault, a little to the left of the road, but was himself killed at the first fire, and his command was driven back in disorder. Although it was getting dark, Rosecrans determined to make one last effort. Part of McCook's brigad
The Maryland Commissioners. --The Commissioners appointed by the State Convention of Maryland to communicate the action of that body to the Virginia Convention, arrived in Richmond yesterday afternoon, and are sojourning at the Spots wood Hotel. They are Hon. E. F. Chambers, Hon. Waiter Mitchell, Hon. G. D. Jones, Dr. J. Hanson Thomas, and Wm. Henry Norris, Esq. Ex-Gov. Lowe, who was appointed as one of the Commissioners, is detained at home by sickness.
re, and but one feeling seemed to animate the whole people. There was but little disorder, but many people armed themselves and walked the streets with their arms in their hands. About 9 o'clock a large crowd went down to the President street depot and broke some of the windows and one of the doors, when one of the employees made his appearance.--They then demanded muskets which were said to be in the building, but were told that there were none there. If the crowd would appoint a committee they could examine the building and satisfy themselves. The committee was appointed, and satisfied that no arms were there, left. A large portion of them then started towards Slemmer's run, where it was rumored the volunteers had stopped. Ex-Gov. Lowe addressed the people from the portico of Barnum's Hotel, under the flag of Maryland. The Ex-Governor was enthusiastically received, and he told them that Frederick county would lend assistance to Baltimore to the extent of their power.

Balloon Voyage extraordinary. --Lowe, the æronaut, it is reported, has arrived in Columbia, S. C., having left Cincinnati early on Saturday morning. His destination was Richmond, but after nine hours journey he arrived in Union District, S. C.
The great balloon trip. --We have already noticed the remarkable ærial voyage of Prof. Lowe, from Cincinnati to South Carolina. The following account of the journey, the truth of which is confirmed by the fact that Lowe had with him Cincinnati papers of the previous day, is given by the Columbia South Carolinian: He lLowe had with him Cincinnati papers of the previous day, is given by the Columbia South Carolinian: He left Cincinnati on Saturday morning, at 4 o'clock, passed up the valley of the Ohio river to Virginia, with the intention of landing near Petersburg; but, after crossing the Alleghanies, a current bore him South, between this range and the Blue Ridge. A little before 1 o'clock, he came down near the line between North and Souock P. M., having thus traveled, by the course he pursued, about 1200 miles, in nine hours. This, we think, is the fastest time yet made. From Pea Ridge, Professor Lowe was conveyed to Unionville, where he remained until yesterday morning, when he came down to this city, with the intention of going on immediately to Washingto
Late Washington City papers inform us that "Professor Lowe, " the ærial navigator, is in that place trying the effect of balloons as means of observation of the position, force, &c., of the "Rebels" previous to their being attacked by there loyal Union troops. If the Abolitionists can get nothing more substantial than gas to apply to Southern courage, we fear they are in a bad way. A few weeks since Lowe started from Cincinnati and landed somewhere in South Carolina, where he acknowledges he was forwarded back with care, and treated during his brief sojourn with kindness and consideration. Lowe, to be in keeping with his name, now proposes to poinLowe, to be in keeping with his name, now proposes to point out the most safe and expeditious way to out the throats of his late hosts. Among the trophies of the John Brown raid was an extensive rifle, weighing about forty pounds, which that pious and illustrious worthy was in the habit of using to "pick off slaveholders" at long range. Said gun is new in the Richmond Armory, and i
"Nowhere on earth would a speedy and honorable peace — a real peace — be hailed with more heartfelt gladness than by us. If the traitors prove too strong to be subjugated, we are for peace on their terms, rather than a useless continuance of the war." Northern military affairs — Speculations on Southern movements. Washington, June 18. --The Fourth Penn- sylvania Regiment broke camp to-day, and, followed by twenty-eight baggage wagons, moved towards Virginia. Professor Lowe experimented with his army balloon this afternoon from the Columbia Armory grounds. He made a number of ascensions, taking up with him a telegraphing apparatus, to which was attached a wire connecting with the President's house. He sent from his ærial perch a dispatch to the President and received a reply from him. Those who ascended with him were Superintendents Burns and Robinson, the latter operating with the telegraph instrument. It has been ascertained that there are about 23
Queer Balloon Discovery. --The follow is telegraphed from Washington to the Cincinnati Enquirer: Professor Lowe ascended in a ballock the 19th inst., taking up telegraphers instruments, sending and receiving message. While in the air it was ascertained that are about 23,000 rebels at Manassas, Beauregard, and all nearly starved. Davis was there yesterday.
