Johnson, of the Coast Guard, who had placed the two guns from the ship and a six-pounder captured fr. Stringham, who claimed the same.) A rifled six-pounder was also landed, and I ordered Lieutenant Johnson, of the Union Coast Guard, to advance with it as far as possible, and to fire upon the secctually came, as I have since heard, from a sand battery which had been hastily thrown up by Capt. Johnson of the Coast Guard, and in which he had placed two boat howitzers which were sent on shore wake care of themselves. The main body, under Col. Weber, therefore, took up a position near Capt. Johnson's sand battery. The several small steamers were sent in shore to be in readiness to protecteventh regiment North Carolina Volunteers. Its field-officers were: W. F. Martin, Colonel; Geo. W.

glory, when uttered as the battle-cries of a nation struggling for existence; these are the only mottoes which can give a just and adequate expression to the cause in which you have enlisted. Sir, I thank Heaven that the trumpet has given no uncertain sound, while you have been preparing yourselves for the battle. This is the Cause which has been solemnly proclaimed by both branches of Congress, in resolutions passed at the instance of those true-hearted sons of Tennessee and Kentucky--Johnson and Crittenden — and which, I rejoice to remember at this hour, received your own official sanction as a Senator of the United States. This is the Cause which has been recognized and avowed by the President of the United States, with a frankness and a fearlessness which have won the respect and admiration of us all. This is the Cause which has been so fervently commended to us from the dying lips of a Douglas, and by the matchless living voices of a Holt and an Everett. This is the

I at once detached Captain Crockett and his company, to bring in the Lieutenant and search his place. The Captain had ozen he had already despatched, he charged on yet another, and with one blow of his fist made him bite the dust. I append a partial list of the prisoners, with their names, rank, and residence: Henry Laughlin, Second Lieutenant, Company A, Johnson's regiment; A. H. Elbert, Second Sergeant, Company B; J. H. Bond, Fourth Sergeant, Company B; J. M. Nichols, Fifth Sergeant, Company B; W. E. Williams, Fifth Corporal, Company D; B. W. Giver, First Sergeant, Company E; J. M. Hunter, Second Serge
s an escort, in accordance with an order from Gen. Wyman, when only a short distance out. A list of the names of these prisoners will be found below, for which I am indebted to Capt. Switzler. By the officers of the two companies referred to, and others, I am enabled to gain some additional particulars of the fight on Sunday, which occurred at Monday's Hollow. The rebel force consisted of about eight hundred men, under whose direct command is not known, but most of them belonging to Col. Johnson's regiment, which, since the accident to that noted officer, has been under command of Lieut.-Col. Summers The fight took place near what is known as the Union road, leading from here to Lebanon. Near the road is a steep hill rising abruptly from the road, and sloping to the south. On this declivity the rebels were formed in line of battle, when Capt. Switzler advanced and formed in front of their left flank, and between them and the road. At the same time, and strangely enough, wit

horse, but as it jumped he was fired at, and a ball passed through the neck of the animal — not the man, unfortunately, though he fell. Col. Anthony was not wounded, though two balls struck his sabre, one passing through the handle, the other striking the sheath. It is certain, from a comparison of the different reports, that no less than thirty of the rebels were killed and many wounded. A large number of their horses were also killed. The following are the dead and wounded on our side: Company A--Killed, Robert Henderson, Corporal Eye, supposed to be killed; wounded and missing, Steve Stilwell,----Anderson, both of Doniphan County. Company B--Killed, Isaac Merrick, William Popjes; wounded, Fred. Kimball, William Bowman, Robert Barry, W. T. Johns, James A. Hunter, H. P. Swan, severely, all of Illinois.

nts, with a battery and a company of cavalry, to cross to Accotink and reach Pohick Church by the Accotink and Pohick continuation of the Alexandria turnpike, so to time his march as to have both his columns reach the church at the same time. Gen. Johnson's brigade followed an hour later on the telegraph road as a reserve. Gen. Heintzelman himself left Headquarters at daylight, and overtook the advance where they were halted, a short distance on the north side of the church. It was soon asc one could be discovered, and the troops were withdrawn. Of the Lincoln Cavalry Sergeant O'Brien is killed; Bugler Benton mortally wounded, since dead; Private Miller wounded, missing; Private Mitchell wounded slightly; Capt. Todd, missing; Private Johnson, missing; and seven horses missing. This loss was sustained by the negligence of the officers of this cavalry in permitting their men to straggle in the presence of the enemy, and to plunder. The rebels evidently occupy several points on t
e the officers who were engaged on the right, all of whom, it is said, behaved well to the last: Colonel Jones, Twenty-fifth Ohio; Captains Charlesworth, Crowell, Johnson, and Askew; Lieutenants Dirlam, Bowlus, Merriman, Wood, and Haughton, of the Twenty-fifth Ohio; Lieut. Aide-de-Camp McDonald, of General Reynolds' staff, Major Dobbs, Adjutant C. H. Ross, Captains Newland, Johnson, Harrington, Clinton, Kirkpatrick, Myers, Smith, Delong, Shields, Bailey, Durbin, Jones, (killed,) and many others, of the Thirteenth Indiana; Captain Hamilton and Lieutenant Brent, of the Thirty-second Ohio. All of these did their duty manfully, and made great slaughter among th boys feel encouraged by the result. Col. Anderson, Major Rigger, Capt. Mollibon, and many other officers, are acknowledged to be killed, and that Gen. (or Col.) Johnson, commanding, was wounded in the mouth. So you see that the late battle was a good thing on our part — the rebels so regard it. I here venture to say that ther

The Courier meantime has swung round till her cabin windows are staring into ours, but as she is about as sharp one end as the other, tows stern first very well indeed. Only one ship is left; we can't very well take her, but we are determined to leave nothing behind. A steamer is coming out, bound for New York. We know her to be the Daniel Webster, Capt. Johnson. It is rather dark, and she is evidently indisposed to see us, but we all go up on the paddle-box and wave hats and handkerchiefs till she can no longer pretend to be blind, but puts her wheel to larboard and waits for our hail. Daniel Webster, ahoy! Will you tow that ship out over the bar? sings out our Master. I'll see you damned first, answers Daniel Webster; and with that polite and obliging response, resumes her interrupted journey. Somehow, the Mercury at this moment reappear
