Beard, Forty-eighth New York volunteers, proceeded up Sapelo River, Georgia, accompanied by the Union gunboat Potomska, and captured a number of rebels and slaves on the plantations along the river, and destroyed a large and valuable salt-work.

-Advocate Lieutenant Farr, arrived in Leavenworth on the eleventh instant.) When I wrote to Major Blair last night it was supposed he was a prisoner, as we had searched the ground over near where his horse fell, and could not find him. Moreover, Quantrel's Adjutant, or a person representing himself as such, who came into Lieutenant Pond's camp with a flag of truce, said they had my Assistant Adjutant-General a prisoner. Today he was found near where he was thrown from his horse, shot through thy orderly, (Ely.) Major Henning is with me. But few of the escort who escaped have come in. I suppose they have gone to Fort Scott. The dead are not all buried, but the number will not fall short of seventy-five. The enemy numbered six hundred-Quantrel's and Coffey's commands. They are evidently intending to go south of the Arkansas. I have scouts on the trail. Two have just come in, and report coming up with them at the crossing of the Neosho River. Others are still following them up. Whe
Doc. 113.-the defeat of Quantrel near independence, Mo., March 22, 1862. A writer gives the following account of this fight, in the Leavenworth Conservative: camp Blair, near Shawnee, Sund The bloody Second is on the tapis again. We have had a skirmish with those desperadoes under Quantrel, who have been committing so many outrages of late on the peaceful inhabitants of our State. Reliable information having been given to Col. Mitchell that Quantrel and his band were within some twelve or fifteen miles of our camp, after burning the bridge on the Little Blue yesterday, and kild terrible retribution to all who follow in their career. The remainder, some eight, including Quantrel, escaped, as he was seen again this morning, running his horse at a furious rate through a cornnfesting this section of country. The inhabitants seem to be terror-stricken when they hear of Quantrel being in their vicinity. I think their career is short, if the Kansas Second remains here much
volley of musketry from the vicinity of the Federal encampment, followed by rapid firing from the Colonel's residence and headquarters, and from the direction of the jail, where a strong guard is always posted. It seems that the recent military orders, followed as they were by stringent though necessary steps on the part of the local military authorities, have greatly excited and exasperated the people of this county, and for a week past men have been flocking to the standard of Hays and Quantrel. During the past week their force has been augmented by recruits from other counties, and some days since they were joined by Gen. Hughes, Colonel Boyd, Col. Thompson and other confederate officers, by whom they were sworn into the confederate service. Needing additional arms and ammunition, they determined to attack the post at Independence, which was weak in point of force. The Federal forces here did not number over four hundred and fifty, all told, including sick and wounded. The
even so great an outlaw as Jeff Davis. Stripped of this interpolation, the memoranda and proclamation do not exceed the bounds of legitimate warfare. The planners and participators in this raid are as high-minded and honorable men as even the conceited editor of the Examiner could wish, and the leaders of the expedition would go as far in preventing their men committing overt acts. And even if the worst was true, how illy it becomes the indorsers of Early in Pennsylvania, Morgan in Ohio, Quantrel in Kansas, and Beauregard in his plot to murder President Lincoln and Lieutenant-General Scott, to take special exceptions to this raid! Either one of the confederate leaders named has been guilty of more doubtful acts than were ever contemplated by any body of Union raiders. Forgetting these things, they threaten to mete out condign punishment to the prisoners captured from Kilpatrick's command. The real animus, however, may be found--first, in the amount of property destroyed, some of
both arms; Lazarus Johnson, arm, all of Co. F; Sergeant Edward Lowrey, Seamen's battalion, shoulder and arm; Sergeant Shelley Banning, Seamen's battalion, right breast and hip; corporal Andy Hytower, left shoulder; Anderson Riley, left shoulder; private Ed. Curtis, back and mouth, all of Seamen's battalion; corporal Jacob Edwards, Co. E, head and side. After the fight the guerrillas retreated to a point south-east, known as Red Dirk and Pleasant Gap, where they have since been joined by Quantrel and Harrison. Our advent broke up their plans. They evidently had at first a most contemptible idea of the negroes' courage, which their engagement speedily changed. Bill Truman told in Butler on the Friday following the fight, that the black devils fought like tigers, and that the white officers had got them so trained that not one would surrender, though they tried to take a prisoner. --New-York Times. Kansas Journal account. Mound City, Linn County, November 1, 1862. Duri
assed (south-east) was extremely rugged, rendering the passage of our artillery and ambulances slow and tedious. Nine o'clock in the evening, however, found us within ten miles of our enemy, who were camped in a force of from seven to eight thousand strong at Boonsboro. From our scouts we learned that they were determined to fight at this point. The rebel forces were under the command of Major-General Marmaduke, Brig.-General Shelby, and other lesser confederate lights, such as McDonald, Quantrel, Livingston, etc. It was a concentration of all the bushwhacking gangs, united to Marmaduke's forces. It was evident that they were driven by necessity to hold, if possible, the section of the country comprising Boonsboro, Cane Hill, Roy's Mills, and Dutch Mills, all within a radius of fifteen miles, and comprising the greatest wheat-growing and flouring section in Arkansas. At four o'clock on the morning of the twenty-eighth the column was put in motion, the Third brigade in the advanc
