ation in the ancient town of Salisbury, on the 4th of July last, while a prisoner there. During the remarks of Col. C. he was frequently interrupted by applause. Col. Magi, of the 331, replied in a few remarks, in which he said it was well enough for men to cheer, but it was men with guns that were wanted. After cheering Col. Corcoran and others, the line was formed and the 33d proceeded to Virginia. Col. Corcoran has been commissioned a Brigadier. General, to date from July 21st, 1861, the day on which he was taken prisoner at Bull Run. The arrival of the New Levy troops in Washington. Washington is again resuming its former military liveliness, by the arrival and departure of troops — On Saturday evening the 122d Pennsylvania regiment arrived. It is commanded by Col. Emlen Franklin, who rendered efficient service during the "three months" campaign. This regiment is between 1,000 and 1,100 strong, and was raised entirely in Lancaster country. It would not
of the Federal army are on the eve of execution, and that a few days will demonstrate the wisdom with which these plans have been devised, and the spirit and vigor with which they have been carried out. It is asserted, on what ought to be regarded as reliable authority, that our forces, in large numbers, have gained the rear of the enemy, and that on Saturday, and perhaps yesterday, a bloody struggle was in progress on Bull Run, in the immediate vicinity of the battle-field of the 21st July, 1861. Coupled with this statement is another, to the effect that other divisions of our army were pressing the enemy from this side, and forcing him on in the direction of our forces that have already been thrown between him and Washington. These statements we believe to be entitled to fuller consideration than should be given to mere street rumors, but we do not claim for them the sanction of unquestionable authority. We give them because we think them not at all improbable. There are

The prisoners even so far as to say that, according to what they have heard, the rebel army of Virginia numbers about 255,000 men. They occupy the outer extremity of the old Bull Run battle-field at present, their front being at the farthest point of the old field. They hold their old rifle pits, which were dug on the memorable 21st of July, 1861. They are bold and impudent. What their intention is cannot be known to any but themselves. The losses. We have no means of estimating our losses in killed, wounded, and missing, of the battle of Saturday last. They were principally of the troops composing McDowell's and Fitz John Porter's commands, and are variously estimated at from 3,000 to 5,000. Among the killed were Gen. Hatch, (on the field;) General Buford, (reported;) Captain Smead, of 5th Artillery, (half of w

It will be remembered he occupied the position of "Professor" in the Virginia Military Intsitute for years before the war commenced, where he taught the young F. F. V.'s the science of war, and fitted them for the command of their legions now in the field. There he was evidently the "right man in the right place." When the war began he was commissioned a Brigadier General of Volunteers, and had command of a brigade in the battle of Bull Run, July 21st, 1861, where he distinguished himself by his unflinching valor and cool control of his forces. In that engagement, Gen. Bee's South Carolina troops wavered, when he rallied them by exclaiming--"Look at Jackson's men; they stand like a stone wall! " And Beauregard afterwards, using the same expression, in describing their conduct in his official report, Jackson was dubbed his present title from that time. During the fall and winter following he was placed in command of the small "army of obs
idents connected with the unholy raid of the thieving Morgan is the death of Major Dan McCook. He was killed near Burlington Island by one of the horse thieves, who shamelessly robbed him after he had fallen mortally wounded." The paper then went on to give a history of his life, and mentioned the singular coincidence that he was the third of the family who had been killed during the war on the 21st of July. The youngest son, Daniel, was killed at the first battle of Manassas, on the 21st of July, 1861; the second son, Robert, on the 21st of July, 1862; and the old man, Daniel, on the 21st of July, 1863. Perhaps it was the approach of the 21st of September that made Aleek leave the battle field of Chickamauga in such hot haste. From the bitterness of feeling expressed against Capt. Gurley at the North I fear that, unless our Government have their attention called to his case, he will be murdered in prison, and we earnestly hope that the Secretary of War will not fall to do what
