, that the supposed enemy was a friend. They had in the meantime fired nine rounds with the small arms and a field piece. The Zouaves hearing the firing, had returned, and fired also upon the Albany boys. At daybreak Col. Allen's and Col. Carr's regiments moved from the rear of the Fortress to support the main body. The mistake at Little Bethel having been ascertained, the buildings were burned, and a Major, with two prominent Secessionists, named Livey and Whiting, made prisoners. The troops then advanced upon Great Bethel in the following order, viz: The Zouaves, Col. Benedix, Lt. Col. Washburn, Col. Allen and Col. Carr. At that point the troops found and successively endeavored to take a large masked Confederate battery. The effort was futile, their three small pieces of artillery not being able to cope with the heavy rilled cannon of the enemy, according to some accounts numbering thirty. The Confederate battery was so completely masked that no men could b

-The fire of the rebel batteries was concentrated chiefly on our artillery, under the command of Lieut. Greble. Our guns silenced all but one of the enemy, which was a rifled gun. Our ammunition gave out about the time the order to retreat was given. Lieut. Greble spiked one of the guns, and was about to retreat, when he was struck by a cannon shot, and the back part of his head was carried away. The gun was rescued by Capt. G. W. Wilson, Quartermaster McArthur, and a squad from Col. Carr's regiment. They rushed forward, placed the body of Lt. Greble on the gun and brought it from the field. The body of Lieut. Greble was brought to the fortress on his gun. He was a gallant young officer. The enemy's battery was so completely masked that its precise locality was difficult to see. Opinions differ as to the number of guns. At the time the Zouaves made the charge on it the rebels commenced flying, but were rallied. The casualties are believed by some to be somewhat g
pert riflemen. For want of able generalship, the Federal force, after several bold assaults, were compelled to retire, which they did in tolerably fair order, their rear harassed by a troop of Confederate cavalry. The loss to the Federal troops was very considerable, but I cannot state the number. Col. Duryea's New York Zouaves had seven killed, forty-two wounded and four missing. The four other regiments, Albany, Col. Townsend; Steuben Volunteers, Massachusetts, Col. Benedix; Troy, Col. Carr, and First New York, Col. Allen, all suffered severely.--About twenty artillerists of the regular army, under Lieut. Greble, acted gallantly, and Lieut. G. was shot dead while working one of his guns. He had three 12-pound howitzers. He is said to have relations in Baltimore, and was highly esteemed by his fellow-officers. The force of the Confederates in the conflict is variously estimated at from eight hundred to twenty-five hundred, and was said to be an advance body from the for

ice of his Colonels, thought best to attempt to carry the works of the enemy at Big Bethel, and made dispositions to that effect. The attack commenced, as I am informed, (for I have not yet received any official report,) about half-past 9 o'clock. At about ten o'clock General Pierce sent a note to me saying that there was a sharp engagement with the enemy, and that he thought he should be able to maintain his position until reinforcements could come up. Acting upon this information, Colonel Carr's Regiment, which had been ordered in the morning to proceed as far as Newmarket Bridge, was allowed to go forward. I received this information, for which I had sent a special messenger about twelve o'clock. I immediately made disposition from Newport News to have Colonel Phelps, from the four regiments there, forward aid if necessary. As soon as these orders could be sent forward. I repaired to Hampton for the purpose of having proper ambulances and wagons for the sick and wounded, in
ork State troops, who will act accordingly, Col. Townsend, commanding the Third Regiment New York State troops, will march his command in support of Col. Duryea, Col. Carr, commanding the Second Regiment New York Volunteers, will detach the artilley company of his regiment with their field-pieces, caisson, and a suitable supply of ammunition, and take their position at the burnt bridge near Hampton, Colonels Allen, Carr and McChesney will hold their entire command in readiness, fully prepared to march at a moment's notice. All the troops will be supplied with one day's rations, and each man with twenty rounds of ball cartridges. That no mistake may be made, all the troops, as they charge the enemy, will shout--"Boston." Colonels Allen, Carr, Townsend, Duryea and McChesney will take notice and act accordingly. By command of E. W. Pierce, Brig. Gen. R. A. Pierce, Brig. Major. From Fortress Monroe. The following rich and racy summary is from the New
From Fredericksburg.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Fredericksburg, June 23. The town is more than usually quiet this morning, and wears a solemn aspect. Private Carr, of Capt. Henry's company of the 2d Tennessee Regiment, died yesterday evening about 6½ o'clock, and will be buried to-day with military honors by his company. He had been sick for several weeks with typhoid fever, contracted, it is supposed, by imprudence in bathing. His death seems to have cast a shade of sorrow over his whole company. The enemy opened fire on Mathias' Point yesterday evening. The firing was kept up about one hour, when two of the steamers, the Freeborn and another, the name of which I could not learn, withdrew and anchored off Aquia Creek. The officers are apprehensive that another bombardment will be opened at Aquia Creek in a short time, and should their expectations be realized, I will inform you immediately. M.
Large fire at Alton, Ill. Alton, Jan. 5. --A fire broke out last night in the liquor store of Kent & Carr, destroying that and nine adjoining buildings, embracing the entire block bounded by Short, State, and Laves streets. Loss $50,000; insured $25,000. A German (name unknown) was burned to death.
days, and whose time had expired. In conversation with a number of them, we were informed very readily that none of them entertained the idea of enlisting a second time. The climate, as well as a continued state of activity, did not agree with them Colonel Bendix, of another New York Regiment, has tendered his resignation to the War Department, and there is no doubt of its acceptance. The only military movement which has taken place at Old Point since the last advices, was that Colonel Carr's Second New York Infantry had removed their quarters to Newport News Point, where they would remain. The steamer Georgianna, Captain Pearson, which left here on Monday afternoon for Old Point, carried down Major General Butler and several members of his staff. A provost marshal now accompanies each boat of the Government Line, and attends to the interests of the Government, (in case it may be necessary,) and thus far their offices have proven a sinecure, for they have nothing t
ts the enemy moving slowly in this direction. --McCulloch has the advance post, and on Friday was ten miles this side of Cassville, so that by to day they must be very near us. A battle is imminent at any moment. The enemy greatly exceeds our force; but no fears are felt for the result. Our army is all here now, expecting Gen. Hunter's division. The body guard and Holman's Sharp-Shooters were the only troops that left with Gen. Fremont. Gen. Asboth accompanied the General, and Acting Brig. Gen. Carr has taken command of his division. Cols. Lovejoy, Starks, and Hudson, late of Gen. Fremont's staff, who remain here to participate in any battle which may take place, have received appointments on Gen. Hunter's staff. The removal of Fremont — great excitement among his troops — threatened Mutiny, &C. The New York Herald, of the 7th, publishes an interesting correspondence from Springfield, Mo., dated Nov. 4th, from which we make the following extracts: On the morni

Hurt, referred to above, when they left for their camp, one of their number strayed off and finally got lost from them, and after wandering about for some time, he came to the residence of a Mr. Carr. and thinking that he was a Union man, made bold to enter and ask for something to eat. He was furnished with food, then arrested, and sent to our camp by Mr. Carr, in the custody of three boys, two of them son, of Mr. C., and the third a son Mr. Carr, in the custody of three boys, two of them son, of Mr. C., and the third a son of Mr. Arbogast. On arriving at camp, he was handed over to the Commandant of the Post, and gave his name as Abel Chatman, of the 7th Indiana regiment. He appeared to be somewhat alarmed at first, and was anxious to know what would be his fate. He is quite intelligent, young and good looking. He says he was born in Connecticut, but raised in Indiana; that he has two brothers in the Southern army, and that he preferred being where he was to that of the Yankee camp Chatman informed us that
