a heavy blow struck me on the left breast just below the heart. I fell forward on my horse's neck and lost all consciousness. The bullet at close range had been aimed at my breast, but the horse had lifted his head just in time to catch it, so that, passing through the big muscle of his neck (and also I may say through a leather case of field orders and a brass-mounted hand-mirror in my breast-pocket-we didn't carry towels in this campaign), demolished the pistol in the belt of my aide Lieutenant Vogel, and knocked him out of the saddle. This, of course, I only knew afterwards. The shock had stopped my horse, and I must have been for some little time unconscious. The first thing I knew an arm was around my waist and words murmured in my ear, My dear General, you are gone, the kindly voice of General Griffin who had ridden up beside me. At that moment also a very different strain struck my ear on the other hand,a wild rebel yell. As I lifted my head a glance showed me the right

onfederates, never hear for what purpose the city was raising a million and a quarter in bonds? Take the Prussian consul, who complains for himself and the Mrs. Vogel whom he represents, as an example. Did he know about this fund? He, a trader, a Jew, famed for a bargain, who had married the sister of the rebel secretary of war, the partner of General Reichard, late Prussian consul, then in command in the Confederate army, who subscribed for himself, his partner and Mrs. Vogel, the wife of his former partner, thirty thousand dollars--did he not know what he was doing, when he bought these bonds of this Committee of public safety ? On the contrary, ifunds to loan to the rebel authorities, and now acting Prussian consul here, doing quite as effective service to the rebels as his partner in the field. I find Mme. Vogel, late partner in the same house of Reichard & Co., now absent, whose funds are managed by that house. I find M. Paesher & Co., bankers, whose clerks and employ
regiment, and by your order, I gave the command to fire, and in a short time my men, with those of the Ninety-eighth Pennsylvania, advanced to the bottom of the hill, where the concentrated fires of musketry and artillery becoming so hot, we were forced to retreat to a more sheltered position in the woods on the left. I cannot refrain from here expressing my admiration of the cool and daring conduct of your Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, Captain J. Heron Foster, whose bearing under a terrible fire, and in a most exposed position, was brave in the extreme-nor can I close my report without thanking you for your noble example in exposing yourself as you did — showing the men under your command that you are ready to share the same dangers as themselves. I annex a list of the killed and wounded, and remain, General, most respectfully, your obedient servant, N. Thourot, Lieut.-Col. Com'g Fifty-fifth Regiment N. Y. S. Volunteers.

er between Reichenbach and the Circourts, for my own pleasure. . . .. The only time I have dined abroad was to-day, at Vogel's, the portrait and historical painter. It was a genuinely German dinner, and curious to me because it is the first one German houses, there has been too much of a French or Italian air about the entertainment to have it properly national. Vogel is rich, and his dinner was abundant and good, and his company excellent; consisting of Falkenstein, Forster, Carus, Dahl, Lohrmann, Haase, etc. But Mad. Vogel was only the upper servant; sitting, to be sure, sometimes at the head of her table, but constantly running out to the kitchen, and often serving her guests. I remember such things frequently when I was in Gerh Dahl, the Norwegian, who is a very gifted person, but who has taken too much to Northern, wild, and fantastic scenery. Vogel is a true child of the Gallery, and is as stiff and hard as mere imitation need to make a man; but he paints chiefly port

. I hear but rarely from our excellent friend Alexander Braun. He does not resist the approach of old age so well as you, my dear friend. You are still the active naturalist, fresh and well preserved, to judge by your photograph. Thank you for it; I send mine in return. My wife still holds in warm remembrance the days when you, a bright, pleasant young fellow, used to come and see us,—what a long stretch of time lies between. Much is changed about me. Of former friends only Kobell and Vogel remain; Zuccarini, Wagner, Oken, Schelling, Sieber, Fuchs, Walther,—all these have gone home. All the pleasanter is it that you, on the other side of the ocean, think sometimes of your old friend, to whom a letter from you will be always welcome. Remember me to your family, though I am not known to them. May the present year bring you health, cheerfulness, and the full enjoyment of your great and glorious success. With warm esteem and friendship, always yours, Martius. Agassiz arri
Among Abraham Lincoln's visitors on last Thursday was John C. Heenan, the "champion of the world," who, being en route for St. Louis, stopped over at Springfield long enough to see Old Abe. Two of the crew of a ship trading in Savannah have been convicted of endeavoring to entice away slaves, and sentenced to receive three times thirty-nine lashes. An expedition has gone in search of Vogel, the Central African traveler, of whom nothing has been heard since June, 1856. Von Henglin is at the head of it. Gabriel Feretti, Great Prior of the Order of Malta, Bishop of Sabina, and Abbot of Jarva, born at Ancona, Jan. 31, 1795, died in Rome Sept. 15, 1860. Col. E. E. Ellsworth, of Zouave fame, who now resides at Springfield, Illinois, has taken the stump for the Republicans. A flirt is like a dipper attached to a hydrant; every one is at liberty to drink from it, but no one desires to carry it away. Isaac Mitchell, of Richmond, Va., was swindled out of $47

rtland, Maine Half of the value of each of these prizes is distributed among the officers and crew of the captor.--The other half is placed to the account of the Confederate Government. Every man on board is, therefore, "well to do" in the world. The armament of the Florida has not been attered since she first went into commission, and consists of a 120 pound Blakely rifle gun amid ships — same metal on the bow, and six broadside 68 pound Blakely rifles. Capt Semmes is stated by Mr. Vogel to be still in command of the Alabama, and cruising in the China Seas. Lieut Evans, of South Carolina, is in command of the Georgia, at last accounts in Bordeaux, France. The following list of the officers of the Florida is furnished by him for the benefit of friends at home: Commander, M Morris; 1st Lieutenant, S G Stone; Master, R S Floyd; Acting 2d Lieutenant, B Barron; 3d Lieutenant, -- Midshipman G D Bryan, Acting Master; Paymaster, R Taylor; Surgeon, C Chariton; Midshipmen, T Si
