into the hands of some of those who have experienced his cowardly brutality. The surgeons in the hospitals and those associated with them, and one other, manifested great kindness to us, pitying our misfortunes, and, as far as possible, mitigating our sufferings. For obvious reasons I cannot speak of the kindness shown us, though all who have ever been there will understand me. In time past one officer was removed for kindness to the prisoners. Captains Sawyer and Flynn. On the 6th of July last I was a witness to one of the most solemn acts of the war. General Burnside had executed two rebel officers for the crime of spying and recruiting within our lines. By order of General Winder, as a retaliatory measure, two captains from the seventy-four captains in prison were selected by lot, for execution, which they designed to carry into speedy effect. This lot was drawn by the following officers, through an aged chaplain of the Sixth Maryland:--Captain Sawyer, of the First New
by a long walk, and extremely anxious to find the Emperor, that he might report and be assigned to his proper duty. This he found quite a difficult job, for as often as he went to one place, whither he had been directed, he was told that he had just left, and would be found at some other. In this way be followed him from place to place for several hours, but at last succeeded in finding him and making his report. He was engaged in the battle of Wagram, which took place on the next day, (6th July ) and was fought by three hundred thousand men, in full view of an equal number of spectators; for the windows and house-tops of Vienna were crowded to their utmost capacity, and tens of thousands viewed the spectacle from the surrounding hills. We have often heard Col. Crozet speak of the sublimity of that spectacle, and the impression, never to be eradicated, which it made upon his young and ardent imagination. The subject of our notice made the campaign of Russia as a Captain of ar
The steamship America, of the Bremen line, brings European malls to the 6th July. The New York Times's Paris correspondent gives some speculations as to the probable future of Semmes, and the prospects of the rebel navy. Further honors had been bestowed on Capt Winslow at Paris. An Imperial Commission had visited the Kearsarge to inspect and report upon her armament. The official visit is said to have taken place on the 1st of July, and among the visitors, it is surmised, was the Emperor himself. The combat between the Kearsarge and Alabama, like that between the Monitor and Merrimac, is going to create in Europe a second revolution in naval warfare. An English report says Captain Semmes is to have the Rappahannock, which is undergoing repairs at Calais. The British news of interest centres chiefly in the debate on the vote of consure, which was still going on in the House of Commons when the America left. The chiefs of the Opposition, Mr. Disraell, Lord Robert
Arrest of a notorious Character. --John Logan, a notorious free negro thief, was arrested yesterday afternoon by the energetic day police officers Seal and Jenkins on the charge of forcibly entering the storehouse of Alexander R. Holladay, on the 26th of July, and stealing about $7,000 worth of coffee, sugar and other groceries. Several negroes have already been arrested and tried on this charge, two of whom (James and Charles Harris) have been condemned to be sold into absolute slavery on Monday next; but all of them, in their testimony, previously given, agree that Logan was the fellow who broke into Mr. Holladay's storeroom and passed out the valuables through the window. In connection with the above, it may be as well to state that an application for the pardon of the two Harrises has been for some days pending before the Governor, but up to a late hour yesterday afternoon the petition had received no favor from that distinguished functionary, and, in all probability,
