him while he was retreating southeastward, and vigorously harassed his rear-guard. But the Federals soon encountered the principal corps firmly established at Fredericktown, and, being unable to dislodge, it withdrew after a brisk discharge of musketry. The position of Carlin was becoming perilous. Fremont, who had quitted the Ser, with a brigade of fifteen hundred men, was sent from that point to assist Carlin in cutting off Thompson's retreat. Two separate columns thus marched upon Fredericktown; but a despatch from Plummer having fallen into Thompson's hands, the latter, thus apprised of the danger he was incurring, had stolen away by a rapid march; ahich had adopted the nickname of its chief, who was called the Swamp Fox, far from wishing to avoid a fight, had gone to take position at a short distance from Fredericktown, where it awaited the Federals. That brigade was scarcely two thousand men strong; some were armed with fowling-pieces, others with muskets of very poor quali

He had thus penetrated into ththe Mississippi, had been stationed near Bloomfield, above the marshes extending east of the St. Francis River.

On his arrival he learns that Marmaduke is already in possession of Fredericktown, and, quickly guessing at his intentions, he does not hesitate to violate the letter of his instructions in order to
before June was gone, Dieskau and his troops, with De Vaudreuil, who superseded Duquesne as governor of Canada, landed at Quebec, Vaudreuil was a Canadian by birth, had served in Canada, and been governor of Louisiana. The Canadians flocked about him to bid him welcome. From Williamsburg, Braddock had promised Newcastle to be beyond the mountains of Alleghany by the end of April; at Alexandria, in April, he prepared the ministry for tidings of his successes by an express in June. At Fredericktown, where he halted for carriages, he said to Franklin, After taking Fort Duquesne, I am to proceed to Niagara, and, having taken that, to Frontenac. Duquesne can hardly detain me above three or four days, and then I see nothing that can obstruct my march to Niagara. The Indians are dexterous in laying and executing ambuscades, replied Franklin, who remembered the French invasion of the Chickasaws, and the death of Artaguette and Vincennes. The savages, answered Braddock, may be formidab

They have too large earthworks in progress of erection at Munson's Hill, directly South of Mason's Hill, commanding the Columbia turnpike; which are surrounded by deep ditches. On Saturday, two wagons loaded with clothing, arms, and medicines, were captured near Fredericktown, St. Mary's county, by a detachment of Col. Cowdin's First Massachusetts Regiment. Major Lewis, of the Forty-Sixth Pennsylvania Regiment, was shot through the heart on the 28th September, by private Lannahan, of that regiment. The cause which provoked the deed was the tying of Lannahan to a cart wheel to be dragged into Washington. In accordance with a late act of Lincoln's Congress, the following order has been issued: Headquarters army of the Potomac,Washington, Sept. 2

Her whole soul is bent on the liberation of Maryland, and were her deeds, tending to this consummation to be known, she could rank among the most famous women of history. Alone, unaided, by routes known only to herself, she passes through the Confederate and Yankee lines, carrying hope to the oppressed and bringing material comforts for the free but exile sons of her native land. The Fredericktown (Mg.) fight. A letter from H. L. Hodnett, Quartermaster, dated Pocahontas, Oct. 27, says: Official reports from Gen. Thompson show a much more favorable result of the Frederickstown fight than was first represented.--Only 82 Southerners killed and 84 wounded; Lowe and Mulholland among the killed.
