Night coming on, the fight ceased, and was not renewed next morning, except as a feint to enable our forces to withdraw in the direction of their supplies. Thus it seems that two musket balls, by killing the gallant McCulloch and Mcintosh, prevented us from gaining a great victory — Had these thief not fallen, no confusion would have ensued among their followers, and had not this confusion occurred, we should, in all probability, have captured the whole Federal army, large as it was — Churchill's Arkansas regiment, which followed McCulloch's victorious banner through the smoke and carnage at Oak Hills, was terribly cut up. It was composed of the beg blood in the State. It is rumored that Gen. Pike had arrival within a few miles of the field at the head of his Indian regiments, but that he took no pars in the battle. The Indians, it is said, were astonished, if not frightened, by the tremendous roar of the artillery. They had never heard any sound louder than their own war-
ivision, Major-General Cheatham; Second Division, Brigadier-General B. Anderson; Third Division, Brigadier General George Many. This is the rebel army as it now stands, and which is composed of about fifty thousand men; but, if reports be true, there is to be another and a third corps added, of which Major-General Kirby Smith is to be the commander, and which is to be composed of the several divisions of the following named officers, namely: Generals Heath, Leadbeater, Rains, Reynolds, Churchill, Claiborne, and Maxey. What adds much to the probability of this report is the fact that the large number of rebel troops who had been gathered in front of Cincinnati have now left that section, and at last accounts were moving in this direction. The enemy are gathering a large number of troops in the State of Kentucky, many of whom have heretofore been acting as Union home guards. In some instances whole companies have turned themselves, and the United States arms which had been entrus

d a pass. Thereafter, when I went into the streets I was compelled to show it to a negro sentinel ported at every corner. Being permitted to pass, I was forbidden to walk on the side walk, and was obliged to go in the street around these sable gentlemen. The few women who want into the street were constantly called to by the negroes who were off duty with "come here, my love and sit down by me," or "sit in my lap," and with other expressions which I cannot mention. One old lady, a Mrs. Churchill, who had lost all her slaves and everything else that she had, at St. Mary's, in Georgia, where she had resided, and had reached Jacksonville a short time before, was said to have been whipped by the black wretches.--They also threatened to whip three other poor women who had no protectors. I determined to run the pickets, stealing out with my family as best I could, and escape, but found it impossible.--Fortunately however, I learned that Lt Col. McCormick had sent in a flag of truce,
seven persons, was missing. The deck broke up about an hour after the ship struck, and nothing but the mizzen-mast was left standing. Several persons were clinging to the rigging at the time, but no assistance could be rendered them. The commander of the Anglo Saxon is supposed to be among the lost. Only about 130 persons are known to have been saved. Five hundred rebel officers, confined at Fort Delaware, are to be sent immediately to City Point, for exchange. Among them is General Churchill, who will be exchanged for General Willich as soon as the prisoners reach Richmond. It is expected, also, that Gen. Stoughton's release will be effected at the same time. Thirty five of our exchanged officers arrived at City Point yesterday from Richmond. The rank and file have all been exchanged. A correspondent of the New York Times gives an account of the "feeler," which the Yankees put in at Port Royal on the 24th ult. He says: The forces consisted of two regiments, t
Wayne and Clinton counties, in Kentucky, is increasing. Four rebel regiments of infantry have passed through Jamestown, and twenty-four more regiments are reported at Morristown, East Tennessee. Gen. Buckner is said to be at Clinton. There are rebel pickets on the Cumberland river at every available point. It is said that three brigades have reinforced Gen. Bragg, but the probability is that those troops had gone to assist Gen. Pemberton at Vicksburg, and that they comprised those of Gens. Churchill, Gist, and Walker. From Mississippi. Our news via Fredericksburg anticipates the news in the Herald with reference to the condition of affairs near Vicksburg. It says that the official reports of Gen. Grant's action at Jackson and the capture of that city, forwarded by Gen. Hurlburt from Memphis, merely mentions that "the Capitol was burned," but does not state by whom. It assumes not to know whether it was done by the troops of Gen. Grant, by the rebels in retreating, or by
l and efficient officer; witness was not very intimate with Forde, but knew that he stood high with his party, and enjoyed its confidence; was an earnest Secessionist, and in the canvass of 1860 took an active part in polities. Mr. Clarke bore testimony to the character of Forde, and knew him to be high-minded and honorable. Other witnesses bore similar testimony. Dr. Beasley deposed: Was acquainted with Forde; had known him since 1858; witness resided in the same county with Judge Churchill, who was married to Forde's mother; accused visited the family of witness; Forde's standing at home was very high, and as a young lawyer had a fine practice; as a politician the accused took an active part, and was on in 1860 knew that Forde had sacrificed as comfortable home as any man in Kentucky on account of his Southern-rights views; his mother had all the time been a warm secession lady, and witness had felt some anxiety about her, knowing that her husband was a strong Union man.

of the Post-Office, are for holding out the olive branch to us, bidding us be good boys and quit our naughty tricks, promising not to flog us for past offences, and only to plunder us of nine tenths of our property, by liberating our slaves, instead of taking it all. They promise no such thing, however, to President Davis, and other prominent actors in this revolution. Them they must punish, as poor old James II., when he had scarcely a friend in the world, could not be induced to include Churchill in a general amnesty which he was persuaded to proclaim. There are some men to whom no experience can teach anything, and Messrs., Seward and Bates seem to be of that number. They might have learned, before this, that the South will have peace on one condition, and on one only. That condition is eternal separation from the North. They are perfectly willing to be at peace with the North, provided they will let them alone. Let the North take herself off, and never come back here, wh
and the long roll sounded at 5 A. M., this morning. Some six companies of the 12th New York Cavalry, Col Savage, were stationed near Deep Galely. Col Classon, with the 132d N York infantry, was stationed at Bacheldore Creek, some eight miles out from Newbern on the railroad. An Iron car called the Monitor, mounting two guns, also assisted the defence. Lieut Col Fellows, of the 17th Mass, with a detachment of 115 men, and a detachment of the 89th New York, accompanied by a section of Capt. Churchill's battery 3d New York, went out on the Washington road, between 5 and 6 this morning. Another section of the same battery went out on the Trent road and was captured entire. The enemy came in on all points at the front in overwhelming numbers. Our troops held them in check till the baggage and camp equipage could be removed or burned. The loss is heavy for the force employed. Out of 115 men of the 17th Massachusetts only 50 came back. Most of the men were captured. Out of 13
Mayor's Court. --Besides the cases mentioned above, there were several matters of less interest before the Mayor yesterday: Churchill, slave of George Duggins, was charged with breaking and entering in the night time, the store-house of Robert B. Smith, on Brook Avenue, and stealing several thousand dollars worth of groceries.--In the absence of witnesses the case was continued till Saturday. Peter, slave of Dr. Theo. P Mayo, was ordered to be whipped for stealing a pound and a quarter of sugar from J. H. Haymond. Fanny, slave of George Thomas, and Charlotte and Phillis, slaves of Mrs. Yarrington, were ordered to be whipped for being disorderly in the street, and using profane and disorderly language. Lewis H. Allen, charged with foreing the name of Mr. John H. Baptist to an order on the post office for letters, was turned over to Confederate Commissioner Sands.
