fined to Grammars.--The talented Caroline Lee Heintz, whose labors in the field of literature have rendered her name a household word in every village, North as well as South, published a Reader second to none ever issued from the press; yet, even in her own State, Sander's, McGuffey's, Sargent's, Town's, and Parker & Watson's, have superseded it. The Arithmetics and Algebra of Col. Smith, of the Virginia Military institute, are allowed to remain on the booksellers' shelves, while Greenleaf, Davies, Colburn, Emerson, Day, Green, Heath, or Ray, is found in almost every school in the South and Southwest. Any carelessly compiled History, well pushed by the active agent of a Northern house, forces Taylor's edition of Pinnock from the Southern University and College, while Johnson's Chemistry and Philosophy give way to Parker and Comstock. We could lengthen this list, but the few examples we have given (and we speak by the card) are sufficient to show that the labors of Southern education
at the Mansion House to-day, are J. S. Williams, of South Carolina, and John Haskins, of New Orleans, C. S. A. They stopped only a few hours. Information has been received here of the appointment of Gen. Diz to this department. Gen. McDowell visited Alexandria this evening. Gen. Patterson's column.

Col. Thomas' regiment is one mile below this point, on the Frederick road. The 1st Wisconsin, the 4th Connecticut, and the 11th Pennsylvania are one mile further South.--The 2d and 3d Pennsylvania are twelve miles below, on the Sharpsburg turnpike. The 15th and 16th Pennsylvania marched on Thursday night, and were joined by the 24th Pennsylvania Irish Regi

I have the honor to be, most respectfully, your obedient servant, Benjamin F. Butleror Bethel, to this place, and by a particular route — hence the delay. I understand from Capt.

Your favor of June 12th, by Captain Davies, with a flag of truce, was this morning received. I desire first to thank you for the court what light you regard them.

owell, who directed two of my brigades to march on the Warrenton road as far as the bridge on Cub creek. I sent my Adjutant General, Captain Vincent, to bring up Davies' and Richardson's brigades, while I gave the order for Blenker's brigade at Centreville to proceed down the Warrenton road. I accompanied these troops a part of . Richardson, with his brigade, was coming into line of battle facing Blackburn's Ford. His position was well chosen, and I turned my attention to the placing of Davies' brigade and the batteries. A part of Davies' command was placed in schellon of regiments behind fences, in support of Richardson; another portion in reserve, iDavies' command was placed in schellon of regiments behind fences, in support of Richardson; another portion in reserve, in support of Hunt's and Titball's batteries. After completing these arrangements, I returned to Blenker's brigade, now near a mile from Centreville heights, took a regiment to cover Green's battery, and returned to the heights. When I arrived there, just before dusk, I found all my previous arrangements of defence had been c
and selling as his own, a check, the property of Francis Courier, Bolte having got possession of it at the Central depot, in this city, by fraudulently obtaining Mrs. Courier's check for the same. He was remanded to prison and the case will come up hereafter in the Hustings Court. Benjamin, a suite to William W. Jones, charged with being a suspicious character, and with striking one of the watchmen while in the discharge of his duty was ordered thirty lashes. Paulus, a slave to Dr. Davies, charged with being on the streets at night without a pass, and trespassing upon William Tompkins, was discharged. Wesley Adams, a free negro, charged with unlawful huckstering in that he did a few days ago first purchase, and then offer for sale at the Old Market afterwards, a lot of apples, was discharged, it appearing that the apples in question were brought to the city from some place more than fifteen miles distant. Robert Shelton, a free negro, was brought up to answer the
Accident and amputation. --An accident which occurred at the intersection of Leigh street and Brook avenue, on Thursday morning, was briefly noticed yesterday. It appears that while the North Carolina Cavalry were passing up, one of the horses, ridden by a groom, was frightened by a dog, and shyed upon the sidewalk, throwing down a son of the late Spot, King, aged 12 years. Another horse in the rear, ridden by one of the cavalry, also took fright and became unmanageable, and trod upon the lad's left leg, fracturing it severely. Drs. Trent, Bolton, Little, and Davies, who were called to see the sufferer, deemed amputation necessary, and it was performed later in the day. The patient is now doing very well. This casualty is a severe blow to the widowed mother, who looked forward to her son's exertions, when a little older, as her main dependence.
The row at the Dime house. --From the evidence given at the Mayor's Court yesterday, it appears that the affray at the Dime House on Saturday night last originated in a difficulty about a fifty dollar note. A customer offered it in pay for drinks, but the bar keeper, unable to make the change, handed it back, and it was picked up by some person unknown. Seeing there were symptoms of a row, a bystander sent for the night watch, and before their arrival a man named John O' Donnell was shot and badly wounded in his leg. Wm. Smith, alias Fleming, was arrested, and the Mayor held him to bail for his appearance on Wednesday, to answer a charge of participating in the riot. The testimony also proved that O' Donnell acknowledged that he shot himself while taking his pistol from his belt. The wound is considered dangerous by the attending surgeons--Doctors Davies and Gibson--the bone being broken very near the hip joint.
as having shown conspicuous gallantry, coolness, and discipline under a combined fire of infantry and artillery. Not only did the return fire of the brigade drive to cover the enemy's infantry, but fire movement unquestionably spread through the enemy's ranks a sense of insecurity and danger from an attack by that route on their rear at Centreville, which served to the extraordinary panic which we know disbanded the entire Federal army for the time. This is evident from the fact that Colonel Davies, the immediate adversary's commander, in his official report, was induced to magnify one small company of any cavalry, which accompanied the brigade, into a force of 2,000 men, and Colonel Mills, its commander of the Federal reserve at Centreville; says the movement painful apprehensions for the infantry at their army. General occupying for the time the right of the lines of Bull Run at Union Mills Force after the militarizing of my orders for his advance upon Centreville, i

gere.--The remains presented a ghastly spectacle.--From appearances, Mrs. Schriver had been deprived of life by a blunt instrument, but one wielded with the full intent of completing its fell mission. This the wounds themselves abundantly demonstrated. In the rear of the left ear a heavy blow had crushed in the skull, the left eye was broken in, and the bone of the forehead forced in on the brain; while the carotid artery on the left side was entirely cut through down to the neck-bone. Dr. Davies, who examined the body, was of opinion that any one of the blows was alone sufficient to deprive the victim of life. Coroner Sanxay assembled a jury of inquest at 3 o'clock on Saturday; but, beyond the opinion of the attending physician as to the nature and effect of the wounds, the description, by officer Kelley, of the appearance of things when he arrived and the sayings of the little girl before alluded to, nothing was elicited to throw any light on the dark subject.
