anola. Not only did the officers act well, but I have nothing but commendations for the private soldiers. Captain Caines' and Lieutenant Rice's company, of the Twenty-first Tennessee, and the detachment of Lieutenant Doolan, adjutant of Major Burnett's battalion of Texans, and detachment from the Third Maryland artillery, were in the expedition, and acted with courage and discipline when under fire. Captain J. W. Mangum, Assistant-Adjutant General of Brigadier-General Moore, accompaniehe expedition rendered me valuable services. I herewith submit the report of Captain McCloskey, commanding the Queen. He mentions favorably Captain Caines and Lieutenant Miller of the Twenty-first Tennessee, Lieutenant Doolan, adjutant of Major Burnett's battalion, Sergeant E. H. Langley, of the Third Maryland artillery, acting as lieutenant in charge of the two Parrot guns; and the volunteers, Captain J. H. White, slightly wounded, acting with efficiency as ordnance officer; Captain Tank a
s motives that control men under such circumstances, to establish the provisional government. A conference was held at Russellville, October 29th, in accordance with previous notice, which was numerously attended, and over which presided Henry C. Burnett, who had retired from the United States Congress. Resolutions were passed, denouncing the United States Government and the State government, and recommending that a convention should meet November 18th. Accordingly, a convention, irregularly chosen, it is true, and professedly revolutionary, met on November 18th at Russellville. Henry C. Burnett again presided, and Robert McKee was secretary. An ordinance of secession was passed, and a provisional government was set up, with a Governor and ten councilmen of ample powers, including authority to negotiate a treaty with the Confederate States, and to elect Senators and Representatives to its Congress. The Governor elected by the convention was George W. Johnson, of Scott Count

To-day the American flag was raised over the late residence of Lieutenant-General Scott, at Elizabethtown, N. J., in the presence of about five thousand people. When the flag was given to the breeze, the Star-Spangled Banner was sung, the vast concourse of people joining the chorus, producing a fine effect. Mayor Burnett presided, and speeches were made by William F. Day and Rev. Hobart Chetwood, which were received with great applause.--N. Y. Commercial, May 30. The correspondence in relation to the establishment of a department of nurses, and the acceptance of the services of Miss Dix, by the Secretary of War, is published.--(Doc. 213.)

Many of the horses in Captain Bell's party, not being practised to the discharge of arms, became unmanageable. The National troops were at once thrown into confusion; but each man, fighting on his own account, discharged his piece at the enemy, emptying several saddles. Two of the rebel horses were brought in. Lieutenant John W. Ford and Sergeant Smith, of Company F, were taken prisoners. Sergeant Parker, of Company M, was seriously injured by the fall of its horse. He was brought back to camp. When the Nationals returned to camp, fortyfive men were missing. The number killed and wounded is not known. Henry Fry and Jacob M. Hemslier were hung at Greenville, Tennessee, for bridge-burning.--Henry C. Burnett, Representative from Kentucky, was, upon the motion of Mr. Dunn of Indiana, expelled from the Congress of the United States for active participation in the rebellion.
r 14. The excitement in England relative to the boarding of the Trent continues: The Liverpool Mercury of this day, states that the Earl of Derby had been consulted by the Government. He approved of its policy in reference to the American difficulty, and suggested to ship-owners to instruct the captains of outward bound ships to signalize any English vessels, that war with America was probable. This suggestion had been strongly approved by the underwriters. The Legislative Council of Kentucky, at its session this day, elected the following gentlemen as delegates from Kentucky to the Provisional Congress of the Confederate States: Henry C.

David Maxey, who lived about five miles from Hardyville and ten miles from Green River Bridge, Ky., was killed in his own house by some of the Southern cavalry scouting in that neighborhood. They chased their victim to the second story of his house, and shot him twice, causing instant death.--Louisville Journal, December 20. This morning eight men, three from the Second and five from the Fourth New Jersey regiments in Gen. Kearney's brigade, General Franklin's division, near Washington, D. C., left their respective companies, which were on picket duty at Edsall's Hill, Va., and went to a house between Burke's station and Annandale. While there, apparently in obedience to a signal by the occupant, a body of about a hundred and fifty rebel cavalry suddenly came upon t
r presence. The third battalion of the First Massachusetts Cavalry, under Major John I. Edson, an old army officer, numbering four hundred and twenty horses and men, arrived at New York this morning. The Confederate Secretary of the Treasury, in his correspondence with the Tennessee delegation in Congress, stated the inability of the Confederate Government to settle the sums expended by Tennessee in behalf of the war.

Simons, and William Preston. and before the close of December the arrangement was made, and so-called representatives of that great commonwealth were chosen by the Legislative council Dec. 16, 1861. to seats in the Congress at Richmond. These were: Henry C. Burnett, John Thomas, Thomas L. Burnett, S. H. Ford, Thomas B. Johnson, George W. Ewing. Dr. D. V. White, John M. Elliott, Thomas B. Monroe, and George B. Hodge. On the day when these men were chosen by the Council, two of them — Henry C. Burnett and Thomas Monroe — were sworn in at Richmond as members of the Confederate Senate. Of such usurpers of the political rights of the people, the Confederate Congress, so called, was composed. The people had nothing to do with the matter, and the ridiculous farce did not end here.
