dent gets but few letters from members of Congress. November 2 Dark and dismal. The Governor continues his exemptions, now amounting to thousands. S. Basset French (State agent to buy and sell supplies to the people), with one or more clerks, and such laborers, etc. as may be necessary, I find among his last exemptions. A smart and corrupt agent could make a fortune out of these exemptionS. Of course, the Governor's A. D. C. will do no such thing. No news from below. Rev. John Clark writes from Stafford County that the conscripts there have hid themselves in White Oak Swamp, because the Secretary of War has exempted an able-bodied man to work for Mrs.----, his — widow. Gen. Winder, with the prisoners in the South, is in hot water again. He wants to make Cashmyer suttler (like ancient Pistol), and Major--, the Secretary's agent, opposes it, on the ground that he is a Plug Ugly rogue and cut-throat.

ur wounded. Geo. Q. White had his right hand blown off, but is doing well. Orderly Sergeant Everett was struck in the back of the head, but is doing well. Sergeant Chase was shot through the arm — doing well. Two of our guns destroyed a famous battery of nine guns, called the Washington battery, from New Orleans. We brought off two of their guns, but had to leave two of our caissonbodies. I brought off one of them with my caisson-teams, a brass six-pounder, engraved on the breech Lee, John Clark, maker, New Orleans, La. Rebel accounts of the battle. Memphis appeal narrative. Columbus, Nov. 10, 1861. Thursday, the 7th day of November, 1861, as your columns have already announced, was an eventful day to the Confederate cause in the Northwest--the advance of the first column of the enemy, as a prisoner has remarked, upon New Orleans, though, more properly speaking, upon Columbus. Things had worn their wonted aspect of quiet up to six A. M. on that morning, with the e

But to the extent possible within the power of the commanding general, it shall be done. He has captured a quantity of beef and sugar intended for the rebels in the field. A thousand barrels of these stores will be distributed among the deserving poor of this city, from whom the rebels had plundered it; even although some of the food will go to supply the craving wants of the wives and children of those now herding at Camp Moore and elsewhere, in arms against the United States. Capt. John Clark, Acting Chief Commissary of Subsistence, will be charged with the execution of this order, and will give public notice of the place and manner of distribution, which will be arranged, as far as possible, so that the unworthy and dissolute will not share its benefits. By command of Major-General Butler. Geo. C. strong, A. A. G., Chief of Staff.

he 29th of July, General Breckinridge ordered a general movement of all his troops on Baton Rouge. His own division consisted of four brigades, in addition to General Clark's division and the large portion of General Ruggles' brigade. Orders were issued requiring all troops to concentrate for this move, stating it to be of the he dead and wounded. A flag of truce came from the victorious (?) General Breckinridge, asking leave for a party to come in and bury the dead and to bring out General Clark who had been wounded. That flag of truce was answered that the task of burying the dead had already been substantially accomplished, and that General Clark waGeneral Clark was in the house of a personal friend of his. The ram Arkansas, from which so much had been expected, had come down the river and run herself on shore about four miles and a half above Baton Rouge. Breckinridge says he had no information of this until the morning of the day of the battle. As soon as he learned it he sent out a p

hat I was to be removed and another general sent in my place. On the 1st of September, I wrote to General Halleck a communication from which I make the following extract:-- . . . I learn by the secession newspapers that I am to be relieved of this command. If that be so, might I ask that my successor be sent as early as possible, as my own health is not the strongest, and it would seem but fair that he should take some part in the yellow-fever season.
