have to hurry on to the result. Our loss, of yesterday may be estimated at 6,000. Many of these are prisoners. The Pennsylvania reserve were again in the thickest. This morning they do not muster 3,000 men. Add to these 1,000 who are stragglers and will yet come in, and the number is less than half that they began with at Beaver Dam. They lost severely there, they were more than decimated the next day at Guines's Mills, and yesterday they shrank to this small measure. Their leader, General McCall, is severely wounded and in the enemy's hands. Our brigade Commander, General J. J. Reynolds, is a prisoner at Richmond; another General, George G. Meade, lies in a tent near us, seriously wounded. Officers of low grade they have lost in about the same proportion. Of the Bucktail regiment not a hundred respond to the roll-call. And so with other divisions. For the losses of the last six days cannot be less than 15,000. It is only hoped that they will not reach 20,000. Appe
he Baltimore American says: Mr. George N. Porter, Secretary of the Exchange Reading Room, was yesterday arrested by order of Gen. Wool, and sent to Fort McHenry. The charge against Mr. Porter was the promulgation of a statement that Gen. McClellan had been utterly routed, and had taken refuge with his staff on board the gunboat Galena--that he had asked terms of capitulation, and that Gen'l Lee had refused any terms but an unconditional surrender. It was also stated that the whole of McCall's division had been captured. A written statement to this effect was handed around among the rebel sympathizers, and laid on the table for general perusal. This is the point at which all the wild rumors have for some time originated, gotten up mostly to have an effect on the stock market. The rumor in question created great excitement in the city, and caused some persons to sacrifice Government stocks at a ruinous rate. Thomas S Piggott was also re arrested and sent to Fort McHenry on a

saw, was merely a breastwork of sods, about eight feet high, placed one behind the other. Day before yesterday Stonewall Jackson's, who was reported dead, sent a flag of truce, in, conveying a lot of our sick and wounded, whom they could not or would not keep. They however, refuse to receive one from us, basing their refusal upon the fact that General Grant refused their request at Shiloh. Major Stone, of the Pennsylvania Bucktails, whose horse was killed at the same time that Gen. McCall's body fell into the bands of the enemy, reports that the General was undoubtedly killed.--His column was marching along the Charles City road when he received intelligence that the enemy were in front of him. He halted his command and rode forward, in company with Captain Stone, Capt. Sheess, and Lieut. Lambert. When he reached a bend in the road he found, to his surprise, the Confederates drawn up in line of battle, on both sides of the road, within one hundred feet of him. They ordere
21st of September a council of war was held, at which it was determined to cross the Tennessee river, &c. Now, to my certain knowledge, no such council was held. About noon of the day mentioned Gen. Bragg and Staff left the field of Chickamauga and proceeded to Red House Ford, where we arrived during the afternoon, from which time until the middle of the following day he did not see any one of his corps commanders. On Tuesday, the 22d, Gen. Longstreet came to headquarters and dined with Gen. McCall, (then Chief of Staff.) While there information was brought that the enemy were leaving Chattanooga, and Generals L. and M. urged Gen. Bragg to cross the river at Chattanooga and move in the direction of Nashville; to which Gen. B. replied that it was impossible to do so at once, in consequence of the lack of provisions; but orders were issued looking to such a movement as soon as sufficient supplies could be obtained. But this, hear in mind, was based upon the supposed evacuation of Cha
arfully weakened by killed, wounded and prisoners. I cannot now approximate to any statement of our losses, but we were not beaten in any conflict. The enemy were unable by any efforts to drive us from the field. Never did such a change of base involving a retrograde movement and under incessant attacks from a most determined and vastly more numerous foe partake a little of disorder. We have lost no guns except twenty five on the field of battle, which were lost by the giving away of McCall's division, under the onset of superior numbers. Our communications by the James River are not secure. There are points where the enemy can establish themselves with cannon or musketry, and command the river, and where it is not certain that our gunboats can drive them out. In case of this, or in case our front is broken, I will still make every effort to preserve at least the personnel of the army, and the events of the last few days leave no question that the troops will do all that
