The Daily Dispatch: July 27, 1861., [Electronic resource], The Maryland Regiment in the battle at Stone Bridge. (search)
mer Mary Cook, who came passenger in the Dunlefth, reports that a severe action took place on Thursday afternoon, between the rebels and the Federal troops under Col. Lowe, of the 12th Ohio Regiment, and seven companies of Col. Norton's regiment. Capt. Campbell did not learn any satisfactory details, but states that our troops exheft on the field and captured by the enemy. The extent of our loss is not known, but we infer that it was quite serious. The enemy also suffered seriously. Col. Lowe sent back during the action for ammunition, and Gen. Cox sent it forward with reinforcements, but our troops were met returning from the field. Lieutenant Pomer rebels, was also among the passengers by the steamer Dunlefth. The following is his version of the conflict: On the 17th, Gen. Cox ordered the 12th Ohio, Col. Lowe, two companies of the 21st Ohio, together with the Cleveland Artillery and Capt. Rogers' Cavalry company from Ironton, Ohio, to cross the Kanawha river at the mo
ery slightly wounded one horse killed and several wounded. It is proper to state that the enemy only admit one killed and several wounded. But this brilliant little dash is but incidental to the important engagement which took place on the other side of the Kanawha, at the mouth of Scarey Creek. About 3 o'clock P. M., on Wednesday, the 17th inst., the Federal troops, numbering from 900 to 1200, and consisting of the 12th Ohio Regiment, and four companies of the 21st under command of Col. Lowe, a tacked Major Geo. S. Patton, at the mouth of Scarey Creek. A deep ravine, through which the creek found its way, separated the hostile armies. Our boys were thrown into some confusion in the early part of the action, out rallied again and fought gallantly Maj. Patton, who distinguished himself, was wounded and unhorsed during the battle, and the command then devolved on Colonel Frank Anderson, of the Wise Legion, whose name, as associated with General Walker and his Nicaraguan campaig
lance of the spies. He then succeeded, it matters not how, as others may come off in the same way. He brought his family with him. He represents the system of espionage established by the tyrants over the citizens of Maryland as vigilant, and the persons employed in it to be utterly heartless. The people are plunged into the deepest effiction and humiliation, and sigh and years for the coming of the day of deliverance, what they believe, and we hope truly, is to come before long. Ex-Governor Lowe's real estate had been said by his instructions at very great sacrifice. There was no longer any resting place for him in Maryland, and he took refuge in Virginia. By his unwavering, unfaltering devotion to constitutional liberty and State rights, he is forced to abandon his native land, the comforts and delights of his home in Frederick, and to submit to a sacrifice of a large portion of his property. His experience is the experience of thousands. A just Providence will yet restore
Governor Lowe, of Maryland. --We have had the pleasure of an interview with this distinguished and estimable gentleman, and have been glad to find him more than hopeful with respect to the ultimate redemption of his down-trodden but gallant State from the grasp of the tyrannical and brutal faction which has unfortunately been able to bind her hand and foot. Governor Lowe, in fact, is enthusiastic in the prospect of an early uprising in our sister State, and is engaged in raising a brGovernor Lowe, in fact, is enthusiastic in the prospect of an early uprising in our sister State, and is engaged in raising a brigade for immediate service of the most desperate kind. It is clear our friends in Maryland are utterly powerless in the hands of the Lincoln Government, and cannot be expected to throw off the shackles with which her free sons have been bound, unless assisted with men and arms. There are many noble hearts in Maryland burning with ill- suppressed indignation, who wait impatiently for the hour when they can burst their bonds and overwhelm in complete ruin the despotic wretches who have dared t
The Zouave drummer has raised the devil with us. I have got that internal itch myself. (Signed,) McDowell. Wor i cannot sive an idea of Gen. Scott's wrath as he manifested it on this occasion. He ordered me from his quarters, and would doubtless have had me confined if Bob had not taken me away speedily. I am still in Washington, and although no one but Bob will talk to me, I can gather a good deal that is going on. Jeff Davis is expected here every moment.

The first Confederate bayonet that shown itself in Alexandria will be the signal to cut the ropes, and Old Ab will swing off into space. Mrs. Lin- coln has gone to Utah, and Seward hasn't been seen to-day. I am informed that some Confederate colporteur got into the ranks of the Federal army and distributed amongst the soldiers tracts containing the Parable of the Prodigal Son — It must be so, if I may be allowed to
An arrest. --The Frederick (Md.) Citizen states that Thos. H. O'Neal, formerly Secretary of State under Gov. Lowe, was arrested in that city on Thursday, by Lieut. Gilbert, of the Fourth Connecticut Regiment, and conveyed to the barracks by a file of soldiers--Mr. O'Neal had just returned from Flintstone, in Alleghany county, where he had been spending several weeks with his family for the recuperation of his health. The arrest, it is said, was made at the instance of private citizens, who charged him with having correspondence with the Confederate army in Virginia.
was killed. In short, your course from Staunton to the mouth of Gauley, near which Generals Floyd and Wise are operating, is due West; whereas the course from Staunton to Beverly and Cheat Mountain, where Gens. Lee and Loring are operating, is almost due North. From the mouth of Gauley to Beverly, from the Hawk's Nest to Rich Mountain, is a very long distance, more than a hundred miles, the way obstructed by the most stupendous mountains in the State, and marked by no direct road. If Professor Lowe could take the Yankee news-writers up in his balloon, and show them the distance and the character of country intervening between the counties of Randolph and of Fayette, those writers never would again confound the movements of our armies on the Sewell and the Cheat Mountains. The importance of the movements of Gen. Lee consists, besides driving the enemy out of our State, in getting possession of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and thus cutting off the most direct communication be
that number concealed and under construction. From a personal reconnaissance, made by our special correspondent, of the enemy's force at Munson's Hill, he discovered that it consisted of seven hundred cavalry, one thousand infantry, and three pieces of field cannon. Of all these rebel movements Gen. McClellan is fully apprised, and he will, no doubt, when the proper time arrives, pay his respects to the enemy. A balloon reconnaissance. A balloon reconnaissance was made by Prof-Lowe to-day at Arlington Heights. The balloon was in the air at a considerable height for several hours. Pickets driven from Bailey's Cross Roads. A messenger from the Virginia side this morning states that our picket forces advanced to Bailey's Cross Roads yesterday, and drove those of the rebels a mile and a half beyond, where it is said the latter have taken possession of a commanding eminence, and are throwing up entrenchments. There was much firing during the day, but without fatal

Although Freeman have ostensibly come for one machine, he had the order for two, besides orders for leather and other articles. Lowe's balloon shot at. The following is a special dispatch to the New York Tribune, August 30: Mr. Lowe, the astronaut, yesterday made in reconnaissance with his balloon. He saw about one thousand of the enemy at work at the place mentioned Mr. Lowe, the astronaut, yesterday made in reconnaissance with his balloon. He saw about one thousand of the enemy at work at the place mentioned two and a half miles beyond Hall's Cross Roads. The Confederates fired at the balloon with shells and cannon, but without doing any harm to the machine or its occupants. The in Philadelphia. A Philadelphia latter of the 1st inst. says: Mrs. Henry S. Gilpin the grandmother of Mr. Wm. L.

Norfolk, Va.,) who is the proprietor. Mason's Hill is a very high and commanding position, and about two miles from Munson's Hill, both of which are now fortified and in possession of the "rebels." In a straight line from Mason's Hill stands the Capitol at Washington, and which can readily be seen with the naked eye Whilst beholding the dome of the Capitol, I feel like one looking upon the "promised land," where shortly, I hope, "may our possessions be." I had the pleasure of seeing Prof. Lowe's balloon, and am sure his observations were of little account to him. The Yankee experiment of ballooning came near receiving a great "pull back," by the firing upon the balloon spy by the Washington Artillery. Several shots were fired at it, when it immediately "went down." Don't suppose, however, "anybody was hurt." But, nevertheless. somebody was scared, for the balloon suddenly disappeared and did not come up again. Camping at Mason's Hill is interesting and exciting — not a da
