The town-treasurer during the same period was Sherman D. Fletcher. We have not received so full an abstract of the patriotic record of Westford as we would have desired. We know, however, that it was not behind any town of its size and wealth in the Commonwealth, in fulfilling every obligation demanded of it by the State or nation during the entire period of the Rebellion. Frequent meetings were held, at which money was appropriated for the payment of bounties, and

d universal mourning in the South. He was an officer of tried courage and capacity, and had the promise of a glorious career in the great struggle into which he had entered with such generous enthusiasm.

A picket and foraging party held possession of Marshfield on the 5th, but a force of our troops had gone from Major Wright's command, and will probably succeed in driving them out. A party less than 200 strong were at Bolivar, on the road from Springfield to Warsaw, engaged in procuring flour and other supplies for the rebel army. The Secessionists of Springfield and vicinity have nearly all gone South, taking with them their negroes and all their moveable property. A portion of Fort-Smith is reported destroyed by fire about a month since. A few refuges have lately come in who state that the rebels are greatly enrage at the outrages committed by Jennison and his men, and will retaliate severely at the earliest opportunity. I have what I consider reliable information from spies just arrived, and who saw and talked with Price five days since, that the rebels intend to return to some point on the sage, above Warsaw, as soon as their forces are properly organized. The h

On that occasion they came in three gun-boats, one of which, the Henry Lewis, towed thirty-two launches, and was crowded with troops. The two little cannon in the place were given up to them, as it would have been madness to resist; but the Home Guard, consisting of about sixty old men, kept their arms. Captain Smith told the Mayor of Biloxi, Captain Fewell, that he was perfectly well acquainted with the number of their arms and all their resources. All of the towns on the lake coast are being deserted, and the people are moving into the interior. It would be useless to send troops there while the enemy have command of the sound and can shell the whole coast with impunity. Seven negroes have proved traitors and gone off to the fleet. Four of them, belonging to Mr. Alfred Lewis, were chased by
