objections of exposing to inevitable interruption our communication with our base of supplies at Duvall's Bluffs, on White River, perhaps involving the capture of Duvall's Bluffs, with all its supplieDuvall's Bluffs, with all its supplies of ammunition, quartermaster and commissary stores. We were, besides, with short supplies, the whole army being on half-rations. And, had General Steele crossed his entire force to the south bano the necessity of recrossing the river in the face of Price's army, and cutting his way back to Duvall's Bluffs, or retreat upon Napoleon! The former, under the circumstances, would be hazardous in elena on the fifteenth of August, he did not have in his command a single sick man. When he left Duvall's Bluffs on the first of September, he left one thousand four hundred sick behind him, and a weeations in November, when the river raises with the rains upon the Plains. The railroad track from here to Duvall's Bluffs is comparatively uninjured, and the train will be running in a few days.
arms, including 500 cavalry, with 22 guns; but Gen. Davidson, with nearly 6,000 more men, mainly mounted, and 18 guns, soon joined him from Missouri; swelling his aggregate to 12,000 men and 40 guns. Steele soon moved out, Aug. 10. Davidson's cavalry in advance; crossing White river Aug. 17. at Clarendon, and sending forward Aug. 22. Davidson to reconnoiter the enemy's position at Brownsville, while he shipped his extra supplies and his sick — by this time numbering 1,000--down to Duvall's bluff, which was accounted the healthiest spot in that unhealthy region. Davidson advanced, skirmishing, to Brownsville, Aug. 25. which Marmaduke evacuated; retreating to his intrenchments at Bayou Metea; whence he was, after some fighting, dislodged Aug. 27. and driven over the bayou; burning the bridge behind him, and so checking pursuit. Gen. True's brigade, from Memphis, reaching Clarendon on the 29th, was ferried over the White next day, and a general advance resumed; Stee
r, who worsted him, taking 200 prisoners. Our loss here in killed and wounded was 200; that of the Rebels was estimated by our officers at 500. Marmaduke soon approaching with renforcements for Shelby, Carr fell back on Clarendon, 20 miles below Duvall's bluff, where he also was reenforced; when the enemy retreated southward. There were, of course, a good many partisan encounters and raids during the Summer; in one of which a Union scouting party, under Capt. Jug, dashed July 25. into Benen, after we had lost 10 killed, 15 wounded, to 12 killed, 20 wounded of the enemy. Gano, of course, got away before he could be reached from Fort Smith. Next month, Shelby, with some 2,000 men, struck Aug. 23. the line of railroad between Duvall's bluff and Little Rock, capturing most of the 54th Illinois, who were guarding three stations. Col. Mitchell was reported among the killed. Steele's advance to and capture of Little Rock the preceding Autumn, with the failure of the Rebels
es and a half from the city. The watchman at the bridge, whom I saw to-day, states positively that when they arrived at the bridge, and penned him in his shanty, it was about ten minutes past one o'clock; and that after cutting the telegraph wires, which took but a few minutes, they fired the bridges at about twenty or twenty-five minutes after one o'clock. As to who the party were, I cannot say; but a gentleman at Cockeysville said that a man named Philip Fendall (I think of the firm of Duvall, Keighler & Co.) was one of the party, but I am not prepared to say so positively. He is a cousin to the wife of John Merryman, now under arrest. Any thing further that I can do for you, I will do with great pleasure. Please excuse this hurried account of the affair, as Mr. Bryson is waiting. Your obedient servant, John H. Longnecker. I have not the slightest doubt that the destruction of the bridges referred to was an important part of the secession programme. The necessity of

The Governor goes this evening to charter the steam-tug Merchant, and to-night his family will leave for his farm in Dorchester county. To-morrow the Governor will issue a proclamation calling a Convention to meet in two days time. The city, by order of the Mayor, will be patrolled to-night. This evening the officers of the Annapolis and Elk Ridge Railroad Company sent out a burthen train and took up the track for a considerable distance, in order that the road may not be used by any troops that may hereafter arrive. The telegraph office at the Annapolis junction was not taken possession of this morning by the Government, as at first supposed, but the operator was absent from duty until 10 o'clock. The States-Rights Guard, Capt. Duvall, has just come in, and reports that two more companies are on their way from the 3d district.

About ten o'clock yesterday morning the train seized at the Washington depot came out from Washington in charge of Conductor Collins, guarded by about 100 soldiers. The regiments got aboard and left for Washington about eleven o'clock, where they arrived about noon. Much enthusiasm attended their arrival. About 4 P. M. the train returned in charge of Conductor Duvall, Collins being sick, and conveyed the Massachusetts regiment into Washington. A train of burden cars, in charge of Conductor Fairbanks, was taken possession of in Washington on Monday. Fairbanks walked all the way from Washington to this city yesterday.
