some of the Home Guards, who had done the least share of the work and the fighting. The cavalry behaved nobly, and could the full details be written up, some of their sharp, brave charges on the enemy's guns, would shine with any battle exploits on record. Gen. Price sent Col. Mulligan a summons to surrender, to which the gallant commander sent a refusal, saying, If you want us, you must take us. But the defection and disheartenment of the Home Guard intensified daily, and on Friday, the 21st, while Col. Mulligan was giving his attention to some matters in another portion of the camp, the white flag was raised, at his own instance, by Major Becker of the Home Guards, from the portion of the intrenchment assigned to him. Capt. Simpson, of the Earl Rifles, called Col. Mulligan's attention to Maj. Becker's action instantly, and the Jackson Guard, Capt. McDermott, of Detroit, were sent to take down that flag, which was done. The heaviest part of the fight of the day followed in a

Colonel: I beg leave to submit the following report of the action of the troops of the Seventh Brigade in the battle of the 21st and 22d inst., with the enemy at Leesburg, Va.: On Saturday night, the 19th inst., about seven o'clock P. M., the enemy commenced a heavy cannonading from three batteries, one playing on my intrenchment, (known as Fort Evans,) one on the Leesbutches to General Meade to examine the roads leading to Leesburg. From this prisoner I learned the position of the enemy near Dranesville. During Sunday, the enemy kept up a deliberate fire, without any effect. Early on Monday morning, the 21st instant, I heard the firing of my pickets at Big Spring, who had discovered that, at an unguarded point, the enemy had effected a crossing, in force of five companies, and was advancing on Leesburg.

In view of this action, a regiment of mounted men will be immediately raised and placed under the command of Colonel John Drew, to meet any exigency that may arise. Having espoused the cause of the Confederate States, we hope to render efficient service in the protracted war which now threatens the country, and to be tr

M., with a party of three officers and thirty-one rank and file, Capt. Charles Stewart, Assistant Adjutant-General, accompanying the party. A line of skirmishers, consisting of two companies of the First Minnesota, commanded the line of the hill to the right and front. After carefully examining our arms and equipments, we moved quickly forward on the Leesburg road; the house to the right, about two miles from the landing, known as Monroe's, was found vacant, and appeared to have been left in great haste, most probably

. On the 20th inst., I received orders to detach two companies of the First Minnesota regiment to cover a reconnoissance on the Virginia side of the Potomac. This order was obeyed, and they crossed, but were soon recalled. On the morning of the 21st, two other companies were ordered to cross and cover the advance of a party of cavalry under Major Mix--all of which was done, the party at the same time driving in the enemy's pickets. Orders were received by me to have the Second New York and First Minnesota regiments of infantry at Edwards' Ferry, on Monday, the 21st inst., at daylight, or as near that hour as possible. These two regiments arrived there at the time specified. I also ordered the Thirty-fourth New York Volunteers to proceed to the same point at as early an hour as possible, from Seneca Mills, eight miles distant. They arrived with great promptness at 11 o'clock A. M. During that day and night (the 21st) the entire brigade crossed the river, numbering about two thousa
elligence we sailed for Cienfuegos, keeping close into the land, and communicating with all the vessels we met. On the 19th arrived at Cienfuegos; sent a boat in to communicate with the consul; found the Joseph Maxwell in his possession; obtained all the information required; and coasted along the southeastern shore of Cuba, chasing and communicating with all the vessels we saw. Some of these were Americans, and were sure that the Sumter had them, until they saw the stripes and stars. On the 21st we put into Jamaica to coal; heard many contradictory reports about the Sumter, none of which could be relied on, and sailed again on the 25th for Curacoa — so it was supposed. We arrived in Curacoa on the 29th. and found that the Sumter had left there on the 24th of July, and had (owing to the facilities she received there) been enabled to capture the Joseph Maxwell and Abbie Bradford off Porto Cabello. A good deal of dissatisfaction existed in Curacoa amongst the citizens, owing to the c
