from loyal houses by the rebels, and carefully preserved for the use of their own offspring. Hived in your thieving camp, Black Zollicoffer! Straight through Tennessee The flag is flapping free-- Ay, nothing shorter! But first, with shot and shell, The road was cleared right well-- Ye made each muzzle tell, Brave Foote and Porter I! Shear the old Stripes and Stars Short, for the bloody bars? No, not an atom! How, 'neath yon cannon-smoke, Volley and charge and stroke, Roar around Roanoke! Burnside is at 'em! O brave lads of the West! Joy to each valiant breast! Three days of steady fight-- Three shades of stormy night-- Donelson tumbles. Surrender out of hand! “Unchivalrous demand!” (So Buckner grumbles.) March in, stout Grant and Smith, (Ah! souls of pluck and pith,) Haul down, for the Old Flag, That black and bloody.rag-- Twelve thousand in a bag! True hearts are overjoyed-- But half as many scamper, (Ah! there's the only damper,) Through the very worst of weathers, After old Fu
Nassau, N. P., Feb. 8.--The Southern schooner Louise arrived yesterday from Charleston, and reports that the expedition under Gen. Burnside had failed, some of the gunboats having been driven ashore during a gale at North-Carolina, and seven thousand of the troops and sailors taken prisoners. The Federalists are said to have suffered another defeat at Bowling Green, three thousand having been killed and five thousand taken prisoners. The small-pox has broken out in Washington, to the great alarm of the civil and military authorities. Army and people are being vaccinated, but vaccine matter is scarce. The Federalists have gained a victory over a large body of Confederates at Mill Hill, Kentucky. Nassau Guardian, February 8.
52. Wisdom at Roanoke. A couplet slightly changed will show Why Burnside lost his boastful foe; “He that is Wise can run away, And live to fight another day.
One Consolation. The rebels mourn a sad defeat, That might have been completer: For Burnside, though he had a fleet, Must yield to Wise as fleeter!
been anchored in this Sound, while the storm howled without, they might have heard: “Perhaps Dundee's wild, warbling measures rise, Or plaintive Martyrs, worthy of the name, Or noble Elgin beat the heavenward flame.” On board of the Huzzar, which carries the left wing of the Twenty-third, they have their full share of sweet singers, and a very excellent band of music, under the lead of Henry C. Brown of Boston. In the centre of the fleet, which covers an area of some two miles of the bay, is anchored the S. R. Spaulding, the present flagship of Gen. Burnside. From her high deck he can easily survey the entire fleet, and observe all that is going on. On the deck of one or two vessels near us are gathered quiet groups of soldiers, and the sublime strains of Old Hundred which float across the waters, human voices mingling with the bands, testify that they are engaged in religious worship. To many of these brave and earnest men it will be, perhaps, their last Sabbath on earth
drew, Jersey rifles fast proclaiming That they carry far and true. This th' affrighted rebels seeing, Leave their ground with panic dread; ‘Fore the men of Jersey fleeing, Who those deadly bullets sped. Driving them from each position, Like the wild hunt, on we go, Till they yield without condition: Thus we overcame the foe. In the west the sun sinks glorious, And our work is fully wrought; Roanoke sees us victorious, Quicker than we erst had thought. Bolder grew the fearless bearing Of our Burnside from that day; “Up!” he cries, “ye men of daring! Up! once more unto the fray!” Passed our three weeks resting-season, We to Newbern turn our prow; Once again to conquer treason: Fortune fair, attend us now! Eighteen miles from Newbern City We step bravely on the land; Well supplied with balls (oh! pity!)-- And the rifle in our hand. Dark, umbrageous forests greet us, Like the doors of gloomy night; There they stand, as 'twere to meet us, Ready for the coming fight. Though the subtle

Burnside, whom he had previously joined by deserting from the rebel fleet stationeGen. Burnside, whom he had previously joined by deserting from the rebel fleet stationed in Albemarle Sound. Remington was captured by the rebels during a reconnoissance near Fairfax, and taken to Richmond, and thence sent to prison in North-Carolina. There he saw extracts published from the Troy papers, where the Thirtieth regimentying inland waters for the rebels. In connection with another loyal man he obtained a small boat and managed to join Gen. Burnside at Hatteras. It was he who piloted the expedition to the landing-place on Roanoke Island, and in no small degree thuontributed to the great victory won by our forces. He joined his regiment, and then obtained a furlough to return to Gen. Burnside, first visiting his home in Lansingburgh, N. Y. His adventures were listened to with much interest at headquarters.
fe of Orderly Sergeant R. S. Brownell, of the Fifth Rhode Island Volunteers, accompanied her husband, who was severely wounded at Newbern, to this city, in the Cossack, and is now at the hospital of the Soldiers' Relief Association, at 194 Broadway, attending to the wants of her husband and assisting in nursing the soldiers who still remain at that place. Mrs. Brownell was with the Third Rhode Island regiment at the battle of Bull Run, having been adopted as the child of the regiment by Gen. Burnside, then colonel. She was on the field at the battle of Roanoke Island, in spite of many efforts to keep her out of the way of danger. At the battle of Newbern she exhibited that presence of mind and bravery which proved her a woman of the most heroic character. She was on the field during the whole of the engagement, attending to the wounded, and giving encouragement by her fortitude and presence to the soldiers. When the standard-bearer of the Sixth regiment fell, she seized the banne
