, and the Texas cavalry brigade, now under Gen. Lawrence S. Ross. The latter was composed of the First legion, Col. Edwin R. Hawkins; Third regiment, Col. Hinchie P. Mabry; Sixth regiment, Col. Jack Wharton; Ninth regiment, Col. Dudley W. Jones; Lieut. Rush L. Elkin's escort company, and King's Missouri battery. Ross' brigade served under Gen. S. D. Lee until ordered to Georgia. Ross disabled and drove on shore the transport Delta, January 6th; and then was ordered to take position at Benton, Miss., and guard the country west of the Big Black river. On January 28th he attacked with his battery and drove back a Federal expedition on the Yazoo, near Satartia. On February 2d, at Liverpool, on the same river, he made a gallant fight with his Texans against a formidable expedition, and three days later, at Yazoo City, again met the Federals and compelled them to return down the river. The Federals subsequently occupying Yazoo City, he attacked them March 5th and forced them to evacu

ion; but, Pemberton had already been beaten at Champion's hill, and was then being beaten again at the Big Black bridge. That night, he retired within the lines at Vicksburg, and Johnston marched, on the 18th, to Vernon, where he hoped to form a junction with his unlucky subordinate, if the latter should ever succeed in cutting his way out of the town. Starting at break of day, on the 18th, Sherman pushed rapidly on, and, by nine and a half o'clock, the head of his column had struck the Benton road, three miles and a half from Vicksburg; he thus commanded the Yazoo river, interposing a superior force between the rebels in the town and their forts on the Yazoo. His advance now rested till the whole command should close up. Grant was with Sherman when his column struck the Walnut hills. As they rode together up the farthest height, where it looks down on the Yazoo river, and stood upon the very bluff from which Sherman had been repulsed six months before, the two soldiers gazed

being protected by this river, he might join directly the Army of the Cumberland at Chattanooga. According to the second, he should, on the contrary, come down on the left bank along the railway, with some fifteen thousand men, leaving the rest of his troops in East Tennessee, and then attack the right wing of Bragg's army. If the third plan be adopted, he should take with him the troops last mentioned; but, instead of going to seek Bragg, Burnside should pass behind him, moving by way of Benton along the foot of the Alleghany Mountains, cut, at Dalton, Bragg's communications, reach Atlanta, and, crossing the entire length of Georgia, should look for a suitable point for the embarkation of troops. Subsisting on the country, taking with him no train, and tearing up the railway behind him, he will not allow himself to be overtaken after he shall have forced Bragg to raise the siege of Chattanooga to pursue him. This third plan was perhaps chimerical at that time, as Burnside's forces
han to make offensive movements for any other purpose. Ironton, Mo., Aug. 26. --Reports received here to-day give information that Gen. Hardee's forces are withdrawing from Greenville towards Heave's Ferry, where they are fortifying slightly; also to Peyton's station, nearer the Arkansas line. This seems to confirm previous reports that the eastern division of the Confederates are hastening to join Gen. Pillow. A strong body of Gen. Thompson's forces are represented to have occupied Benton, eight miles back of Commerce, where they are throwing up fortifications. The arrest at Philadelphia. The following circumstance has been briefly announced by telegraph: Philadelphia, Aug. 25.--Samuel Eakin was arrested here yesterday as a Southern agent. He is connected with Mr. Sloat, now engaged at Richmond in altering arms for the Confederates. His papers seized show his participation with the Confederate cause. A coil of wire for field telegraph was found among his bagg
ached upon the territory formerly held by us, nearly one-half mile nearer our line of fortifications. They now occupy several important strategical points, upon which they are throwing up fortifications. The line of the enemy's pickets covering our front on the Virginia side of the the Potomac commences on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad running thence in an irregular course, taking advantage of all the natural lines of defence across the Little River turnpike, between Cloud's Mills and Benton's tavern, to Bancroft's Mills, at the junction of Hunting Creek and the Columbia turnpike. At this place the enemy have constructed a breastwork, commanding the turnpike in the direction of Bailey's Cross Roads. Proceeding from this point, over tilled fields and through heavy woods, the line, of rebel pickets continues to Munson's Hill, one and a quarter miles from Bailey's Cross Roads, on the Leesburg turnpike. On this hill the enemy are constructing works. They have now a temporary batt
Attempted murder. --A most diabolical attempt at murder was committed near Benton, Miss., a few ughts since. As Mr. Richard Boyd was returning home from town and had gone into his house, he heard some one calling him in the yard. He got up to answer the voice, when he saw two of his slaves. Andy and Steven standing in the yard, the latter having his double barrelied shot gun cocked and presented towards his head. He fired one barrel, the contents of which fractured his left arm severely and the other passed over his left shoulder, leaving one buck shot. The cause of this is not known, as he was an indulgent master.
will now say, I care not how loudly the trumpet may be sounded, nor how low the priests may band their knees before the object of their idolatry, I will be at the side of the President, crying in his car, 'Remember, Philip, thou art mortal.' His own State was, unfortunately, at one time not so true to her creed as her servant; and on her instructing him to cast a vote, of immaterial importance in itself, but indirectly rebuking the conduct of State-Rights Senators, (we allude, of course, to Benton's Expunging Resolutions,) the resigned his appointment, in February, 1836, and retired to private life. He did not again emerge into public view until his nomination in 1840 by the Whig party as their candidate for the Vice-Presidency, in conjunction with Gen. Harrison for the Presidency. The success of that party in that memorable campaign would have subjected so thorough a State-rights man as Mr.Tyler to no embarrassment, if events had permitted him to remain in the office to which h
, though special mention is made of Capt. Fulkerson, of the Van-Dorn. The St. Louis was seriously damaged, and was run on a bar opposite Plumb Point. --Yesterday, at noon, she was still on the bar, with a transport alongside, supposed to be in a sinking condition. The fight was brought to a close by the Federal gunboats withdrawing into shoal water, where ours could not go. They then opened broadside after broadside at us, throwing some three hundred shot, but with no damage. The Benton gunboat, Com. Foote's flagship, did not leave the shore, but all the time poured a most destructive fire upon our boats. The Federals made an attempt to board the Sumter, but the boarding party were all dispersed by a shower of balls and hot water.--Several of the Federals were killed at their guns, and others at the forecastle. We fired from our big gun not exceeding twenty shots, mostly from the Jeff. Thompson. Our loss in the engagement is two--the cook on the Bragg and the stew
