ty I owe to the gallant gentlemen of my staff, briefly to mention their services. The Hon. Isaac N. Arnold, of the United States House of Representatives, one of my volunteer aids, was with me on the field till I received my wound, and then devot name was mutilated. N. Y. Tribune, Aug. 16. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, A. Porter, Col. 16th Regt., U. S. A., Commanding. Capt. Griffin's report. camp near Arlington, Va., July 25, 1861. Col. A. Porter, Commanding Second said prisoner's confinement in the Capitol at Washington city, Mr. Irvine, in company with Hon. Morton S. Wilkinson, United States Senator from Minnesota, visited him, when he promptly recognized Mr. Irvine as his captor, and thanked him very cordifness and want of detail in this report. W. S. King, Sur. and Med. Diree'r, U. S. A. Capt. J. B. Fry, Asst. Adjt.-Gen., U. S. A. Subsistence Department report. Arlington, Va., Aug. 2, 1861. Captain: For the information of the general com

Squires commanding, I desire especially to direct your attention: a young officer, the second time under fire, (having been in the engagement ofl for the day — they also used our red badge, which fortunately was discovered in time, and they carried into action the flags of the Palmetto State and the Confederate States. It has been asserted, too, by numerous individuals engaged in the battle, that there was great confusion and slaughter among our own men, who mistook them; that of the enemy estimated at 35,000. Jefferson Davis. Another despatch says the entire Confederate force was about 40,000, and the entire force of the United States near 80,000.

The head of the naval and military forces of the United States is the President, in theory and in the practice of appoance of the least reputable portion of the press in the United States, generally conducted by aliens or persons who have leftthoroughly reorganized. It must be remembered that the United States is about to lose the services of some 80,000 men, many powers. The fight cannot go on forever, and if the Confederate States meet with reverses — if their capital is occupied, tqually true of their opponents? On what ground can the United States, which were founded on successful rebellion, claim exemerald the entrance of the enemy into the capital of the United States. The Unionists, on the other hand, speak of the past h have only to will it, and the world — including the Confederate States--is prostrate before them? The exaggerations and miConfederates could have marched into the capital of the United States. They took no immediate steps to follow up their unexpe

And Col. Mullins, in a customer that was skulking on the road to Centreville upon the evening of the battle, and whom he made his prisoner, the Hon. Mr. Ely, of New York. There is a feeling of regret for all the gallant men who fell in td not their heroes to fall unavenged, for they piled the ground before them with the slain of the enemy. Bulletin of Johnston and Beauregard. Headquarters of the army of the Potomac, Manassas Junction, July 28, 1861. Soldiers of the Confederate States:-- One week ago a countless host of men, organized into an army, with all the appointments which modern art and practiced skill could devise, invaded the soil of Virginia. Their people sounded their approach with triumph and displays
have driven back to their dens the boasting invaders of our soil, scattering them before our victorious arms as leaves are scattered before the autumn wind. The details we publish in our telegraphic column leave no doubt that we have put the enemy to utter rout, and struck him a blow from which it is impossible for him wholly to recover. The victory is the more significant, from the fact that it is the first general engagement between the opposing forces. That the President of the Confederate States was himself in the thickest of the fight, exposed to all the perils of the battle-field, is another circumstance that adds to the joy of our triumph, and swells our triumphant note of exultation. All honor to our brave and gallant leader and President, to the brave Beauregard, the gallant Johnston, and our chivalric soldiery. We have driven the enemy back from our soil, we have mowed down his men by the hundreds and by the thousands, we have captured his batteries, and sent him how

Finally, it is not true that democracy in America is unlimited, as the writer will find by turnity, it is inconceivable how, if democracy in America had been unlimited, the war could have arisent omnipotent battalions. If the civil war in America proves any thing to the disparagement of demovernment which has been established in the United States. We have far more in common with Washingto in which it is more necessary than in the United States, where wages are high and work is abundant commercial jealousy, and thus we see that in America the great battle of free trade as opposed to orator he will find the Government of the United States extravagantly eulogized for the very qualih has existed between this country and the United States, during the present century, has arisen frhe civil war which at present afflicts the United States the Cabinet at Washington has acted in str[17 more...]
se, with the hope of averting the horrors of war, and those urged in support of the government and the flag of our country, when war is being waged against the United States, with the avowed purpose pose of producing a permanent disruption of the Union and a total destruction of its government. All hope of compromise with the colag should be planted upon the walls of the Capitol at Washington, and a proclamation issued inviting the pirates of the world to prey upon the commerce of the United States. These startling facts, in connection with the boastful announcement that the ravages of war and carnage should be quickly transferred from the cotton fieldf the North, furnish conclusive evidence that it was the fixed purpose of the secessionists utterly to destroy the government of our fathers and obliterate the United States from the map of the world. In view of this state of facts there was but one path of duty left to patriotic men. It was not a party question, nor a question

The word territory, used in this proviviously means land, and nothing else. The United States, at the time when the Constitution was adoto operate? Simply on the property of the United States, not on any other property, nor on personse people who may occupy a territory of the United States constitute an independent community with a State is as much bound by the laws of the United States, constitutionally enacted, as by the laws elieve its citizens from allegiance to the United States, as it is for the latter to relieve them fresident to take care that the laws of the United States shall be faithfully executed upon every cit — the seceders and the Government of the United States.

Doc. 15.-John Ross's proclamation. I, John Ross, principal Chief, hereby issue this my proclamation to the people of the Cherokee Nation, reminding them of the obligations arising under their treaties with the United States, and urging them to the faithful observance of said treaties, and peace and friendship toward the people of all the States. The better to attain these important ends, I earnestly impress on all my fellow-citizens the propriety of attending to their ordinary avocations, and to abstain from political discussions of the events transpiring in the States, and from partisan demonstrations in regard to the same. They should not be alarmed with false reports, thrown into circulation by designing men, but cultivate harmony among themselves, and observe good faith and strict neutrality between the States threatened with civil war. With these means alone can the Cherokee people hope to maintain their own rights unimpaired, and have their own soil and firesides spared
