e have taken near 50 pieces of rifled cannon, and run them clean off the field. Beauregard, of South Carolina, led our regiment. They (I mean the regiment) whipped the Ellsworth Zouaves, that much-dreaded band of ruffians. Yes, I have seen them myself — yes, more than a hundred of them, as high as six in a bunch, dead as a door nail. They had 75,000 men against us, and so sure was Scott of success, it is reported he brought up one hundred ladies from Washington to see him conquer Southerners;--(but some one got hurt.) Jeff. Davis came up here on Sunday, and was on the field himself. Gen. Jackson was wounded, two fingers shot off; Gen. Bee killed. I do not know our loss--250 killed, not more, and it may be less, but 200 men lost will cover all. It commenced about 6 in the morning, and lasted all day. They had a fight here on Thursday too, but it was nothing to this. I suppose the next you hear of us will be at Washington. We are determined to have it.--Boston Journal, Aug. 16.
The Shriver Grays. --A company with this designation, from the city of Wheeling, took part in the hottest of the battle at Manassas on the 21st inst. This company was formed at Wheeling in May, when the enemy's troops were collecting at that place, and made its way, in small detachments, almost from within the enemy's lines, to Harper's Ferry. Being attached to the Twenty-seventh regiment of Virginia Volunteers, forming part of tile brigade of General Jackson, in General Johnston's army, the company has shared in much severe service with credit to itself, and finally, at Manassas, proved itself equal to the rest of our heroes in the desperate struggle of the left wing. The officers, Captain Daniel M. Shriver, First Lieutenant John S. Mitchell, and Second Lieutenant John B. Lady, led with great gallantry, and the men followed with the determined courage of veterans in a successful charge of their regiment and others on one of the enemy's batteries, after sustaining for hours a st

Capture of Missouri secessionists. Cairo, June 11.--Yesterday an old farmer from Rush Ridge, named J. G. Long, and a citizen named Kelton, who had been driven out by the secessionists, gave information that there were two armed companies of secessionists formed to be taken into the command of Watkins, one of Claib. Jackson's brigadier-generals, who were driving out and threatening all Union men there. After they had driven Mr. Long and family out, he sent an agent to take care of his farm, but they would not permit him even that privilege. His daughter, in passing by one of these companies, was fired at by a volley designed to frighten her horse and throw her off. Gen. Prentiss detailed Capt. Hassfurther's company to capture them. Having surrounded the dwelling, they captured eighteen of the gang, who were suddenly started out of their beds. They then marched rapidly to another neighborhood, where a company, raised by a secessionist named Hunter, were said to be encamped.
67. they call me a traitor now. The following lines were suggested by seeing an old man intently gazing at the American flag, as it floated from the dome of one of the hotels in Memphis, Tenn. I live, said he, in Mississippi, where they won't let that flag be raised, but I love that flag; I bore it through the Indian wars, and at New Orleans, under Gen. Jackson. I am sixty-nine years of age. I was born and raised in this State. My father, an old Revolutionary soldier, was one of the first settlers. My country has been very good to me, and gave me all I love. My country I love. I love Tennessee; I am sorry I ever left her. I want to live where that flag waves. I don't like the people of Mississippi; they call me a traitor now! I have borne that flag in former years To conquer a savage foe, Whose ravaging deeds on our then frontier, Brought terror, and death, and woe; And how we suffered 'mid toil and pain, 'Tis history will tell you how, Yet those whose peace those wars di
band In their own nets, and save our land! “They speak not peace;” false charges they The foulest to our doors have lain; No blush .of shame their cheeks betray, That motives such as sordid gain, Should lead them on, the coward band-- God shield and save our Southern land! While nations live, nor truths forgot, While genius, honor, worth we prize-- Will sink the name of Winfield Scott Beneath the lowest craven spies, That follow in his Yankee band, God save Virginia's noble land! While Jackson, on the scroll of fame, Inscribed with tears, for patriot's blood, Shall live forever! and will claim Remembrance in the book of God-- Who nobly fell our flag to save! Immortal fills a hero's grave! Kentucky! where's thy ancient boast? Thy valor's gone!--thy daughters bow In shame before thine honor lost, And charge thee with the treachery now! Give traitors aid, lend them thy hand, God still will shield our native land! The time will come, and justice waits, When, armed with rights, ou
o deny it — that's so; But I saw from the White House an impudent rag, Which they told me was known as Jeff. Davis' flag, A-waving above Alexandria high, Insulting my Government, flouting the sky; Above my Alexandria, (isn't it, Bates? Retrocession's a humbug; what rights have the States?) So I ordered young Ellsworth to take the rag down, Mrs. Lincoln, she craved it, to make a new gown; But young Ellsworth, he kinder got shot in the race, And came back in a galvanized burial case; But then Jackson, the scoundrel, he got his desert; The panic's fictitious, and nobody's hurt. It is true I sent steamers which tried for a week To silence the rebels down there at the creek; But they had at Game Point about fifty or more Rifled cannon set up in a line on the shore, And six thousand Confederates practised to fire 'em, (Confound these Virginians, we never can tire 'em!) Who made game of our shooting and crippled our fleet, So we prudently ordered a hasty retreat; With decks full of passenge
y true. It was written by a citizen of Booneville who never states as truth what he doesn't know to be truth: An account of the fruitless interview between Gov. Jackson and Gen. Price, commander-in-chief of the Missouri militia, on the one side, and Gen. Lyon and Col. Blair on the other, you have no doubt seen, as well as the proclamation of Gov. Jackson, calling for 50,000 State troops, which followed. Immediately after issuing the proclamation which named no point of rendezvous for the troops, steps were taken to move the military Headquarters from the capital. Rumor named divers points as the future location of this department. The arrival, howev. Lyon. The Federal troops took, in addition, about 40 prisoners, losing 2 killed, 11 wounded, and 1 missing. The State troops lost 3 killed and 7 wounded. Gov. Jackson, with some officers and the only well drilled, and well-armed company under his command as a body guard, remained, during the battle, about three miles from th
were captured. Boernstein, who was in command at Jefferson City, immediately after their defeat telegraphed to F. P. Blair, Jr., who had command in St. Louis, to send up all the forces he could possibly spare. Upon receipt of the despatch he sent up 3,000 troops from St. Louis, the evening before I left. Upon the reception of the news from Booneville, the secessionists in St. Louis turned out about 3,000 to 4,000 in number, greatly elated, and cheered for Jeff. Davis, Beauregard, and Gov. Jackson. They expected to make an attack upon the Dutch that night, who were under the command of Blair, at the Arsenal, and supposed to be about 3,000 in number. The battle of Kansas City took place on Monday morning, the 17th. Thirteen hundred Federal troops made an attack upon about that number of the State troops, under command of Captain Kelley. After a desperate fight the Federals were repulsed, leaving 200 dead on the field of battle, 150 taken prisoners, four pieces of cannon, &c. Lo
s staff and a corps of sappers and miners, halted in front of the stand. Col. Blenker with his regiment led the column. Next came the Twelfth, Col. Walrath; then the Fourteenth, Col. McQuade, preceded by a drum corps. The beautiful ensign of Col. McQuade's regiment attracted many a compliment, as did the beautiful flags of the several regiments. Next to the Fourteenth came in order the Fifteenth, Col. Murphy; the Sixteenth, Col. Davis; the Seventeenth, Col. Lan-sing; the Eighteenth, Col. Jackson, marching thirty-five men abreast, and exhibiting great superiority in drill; the Nineteenth, Col. Clark, with his large corps of drummers; the Twenty-second, Col. Phelps, with its fine silver cornet band and beautiful flag; the Twenty-sixth, Col. Christian; Twenty-eighth, Col. Donelly; Twenty-ninth, Col. Von Steinwerh, with fine brass band; Thirtieth, Col. Frisbie, and drum corps; Thirty-first, Col. Pratt, with 900 men, marching fifteen abreast; Thirty-second, Col. Matheson; Thirty-seven
