he received his most serious bodily injuries. With his face lacerated, his jaw broken, his shoulder maimed, the flesh torn from his limbs, and contusions blackening his body, life seemed scarcely to have a tenement left for itself; and identified no longer by his visage, but by his uniform, he was laid and reported among the dead. The explosion of the magazine of the Fulton occurred while the officers and a small company of guests were dining in the cabin.--Among the party were Lieut. Breckenridge. United States Navy, who was killed. His only wound being the puncture of a bayonet through his forehead. His wife, who sat at his side while dining, was severely wounded.--Com. Platt occupied the head of the table, the Rev. Chas. H. Platt, then a lad of 6 years, sat at his left, over whom a waiter was leaning, who was crushed by a timber falling upon his head. The injuries to Charles were but slight gashes, which soon healed. He saw his father, with other bleeding officers, lying
uses had passed a bill confiscating all property in the seceding States used in aiding the rebellion, and he need not say that all property is used to support those who were carrying on the war. To this bill is added that all persons held to service or labor, aiding in the rebellion, shall be freed from such service or labor; this, he said, was plainly an act of emancipation, as all these persons are employed in raising the very means of support of the people of the seceded States. Mr. Breckenridge said that in New York a young man had been imprisoned without a direct charge being made, and the military officer refused to obey the writ of habeas corpus. Why was this necessary in the State of New York? Was not New York subordinate to the Federal Government? The police Commissioners of Baltimore were arrested without charge. In vain they asked for a hearing; in vain they respectfully protested against the wrongs which had been perpetrated upon them. When the President is asked t
nment, through its agent, once offered a larger sum. The Court decided that the case must be decided by ascertaining if such higher price was offered, as set forth, so as to bind the Government. The Government side of the case is managed by attorneys appointed under the Buchanan Administration. The official returns of the State election are just announced. The whole vote cast is a fraction under 120,000. Sanford, the Republican candidate for Governor, received 36,036. McConnell, (Breckenridge) 32,751; Converse, (Union Democrat) 30,990. Captain T. J. Steeples, commanding the steamer Pacific, was shot at Portland, Oregon, on the 10th instant, whilst aiding to assist a gambler. He died a few days subsequently. General Sumner will leave on Monday, the 21st inst., by steamer for Washington, with nine companies of regulars under his command, who go to New York. One thousand United States arms go forward by the same steamer. Col. Wright succeeds General Sumner in
excellent road led direct to Hamburg, a few miles above this left wing of our forces. Within a few days the oversight had indeed been discovered, and the determination had been expressed to land Buell's forces at Hamburg, when they arrived, and thus make all safe. It was unfortunate, of course, that Beauregard and Johnston did not wait for us to perfect our pleasing arrangements. When the rebels marched out from Corinth a couple of brigades (rumored to be under the command of Breckenridge) had taken this road, and thus easily and without molestation reached the bluffs of Lick Creek, commanding Stuart's position. During the attack on Prentiss, Stuart's brigade was formed along the road, the left resting near the Lick Creek ford, the right, 71st Ohio, Col. Rodney Mason, (late Ass't Adj't-General of Ohio, and Colonel of the 2d Ohio at Manassas.) being nearest Prentiss. The first intimation they had of disaster to their right was the partial conization of firing. An ins
and forced him through the suburbs of the town. Then came the last charge, and right nobly did our exhausted soldiers discharge their duty. Way worn, covered with the dust, and consumed by the heat of battle, the gallant boys plunged headlong again into the fight and before them fled the Yankees. In vain did they bring up their reserves. We drove them all quite to the river, completely under the protection of their gunboats, many of them taking to the water. It was then that General Breckenridge ordered a recall. He had received a message that it would be impossible for the Arkansas to participate then in the engagement, but that, by two o'clock, she could take her part. Slowly and with reluctance our troops fell back, although exposed to the heavy firing of the gunboats. About one mile and a half from town they were halted and the poor, wearied, jaded fellows threw themselves upon the ground to rest. The loss of the Arleanses and its cause are described in a letter to
ion renders his principal also able, unless exempt on other grounds," as in General Order, No. 64. The resolution was agreed to. Mr. Bruce, of Ky., introduced a resolution, that the Secretary of War is hereby requested to inform this House whether there have been transmitted to him any findings of Courts, provided for in the act entitled "An act to punish drunkenness in the army," approved April 21, 1862, and if there have been, to report the same to Congress.--Agreed to. Mr. Breckenridge, of Ky., offered a resolution, that the Committee on Military Affairs be instructed to inquire into the expediency of establishing, at different points in the Confederacy, asylums for indigent and maimed soldiers who have been discharged from the service on account of wounds or chronic disease. The resolution was adopted Mr. Conrad, of La., offered a joint resolution to provide a homestead for the officers and privates of the army of the Confederate States. Referred. Mr. Dupre
, and is now cooped up with the others between the rivers. --This they are all there. Their combined force is supposed to be about seventy-five thousand men. It is probable that they have received further reinforcements. You will remember that some time ago I wrote you that Bragg was expecting Breckinridge up with reinforcements. There is reason to believe that Breckinridge has come up, but whether with reinforcements or not remains to be determined. A dispatch has been received by Mrs. Breckenridge, at Maysville, directing her to meet the reasonable John C. at Danville. The dispatch his arrival there on Monday last. The of the rebels at camp Dick Robinson made them a little more inaccessible to our army; but at the same time, renders their destruction at the more sure when they are got at.--There is no escape for them. They have an advantageous position for defence, but, if the position can be carried, they are all taken as in a trap. Their only hope now is in desperate
d to Port Royal again it is supposed the difficulties have all been arranged and that matters will soon be all right again. From Kentucky, we learn (the "Herald" says) that the enemy was retreating from that State by way of Mr. Sterling and Hazel Green, and that CeiKinkie with a force of eight hundred men was pursuing them. A subsequent dispatch says the Confederates were overtaken twelve miles from Mt. Storing and were badly beaten after a brisk skirmish. There is a rumor that Breckenridge is advancing on Lexington with 10 (0) men, but this seemed to be doubted. A correspondent from Frankfort says that a gentleman from Richmond reports that our troops are retreating towards Lexington pursued by doth their numbers. A deserter from Lexington, Ky., dated the 16th says that there is great ... and that there are reports there of of Kentucky by a large force which is to cove through Cumberland Gap; of which the military authorities are not advised but that they are beginni
and in full retreat. Gen. Breckinridge's division, and Gen. Preston's of Buckner's corps, also core a most gallant part in the charging of the enemy's entrenchments, who were driven three miles, back to Missionary Ridge, and from which the enemy were driven to within five miles of Chattanooga. Gen. Bragg was on the field with the troops, night and day, and in riding down the lines in front of Gen. Breckinridge's division, on the night of victory, he was most enthusiastically cheered by Breckenridge and his brave Kentucky, Louisiana, Alabama and Florida troops. We have captured over 40 stand of colors 45 pieces of artillery, and taken over 6,000 prisoners. Our loss is estimated from eight to ten thousand, killed and wounded; the enemy's cannot be less than from twenty to twenty five thousand. The battle field extended about ten miles, and the carnage was the most frightful yet witnessed, far exceeding Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Murfreesboro', or Shiloh. The constant and
