ravely until a shot passed through her boiler, and she was compelled to raise the white flag. The Clifton had, besides her crew, 70 sharpshooters on board. The Sachem had a detachment of 30 sharpshooters. Five soldiers, one sailor, and one signal man, escaped down the beach from the Clifton. The number of killed and wounded is not known. The Arizona, being unequal to the contest, fell back, and the order was issued to the fleet to withdraw. The expedition returned to New Orleans, Sept. 12, with its designs prostrated at the feet of adverse circumstances. Another letter thus sums up the disaster: Just as soon, however, as an attempt was made to land, the rebels poured in shot thick and fast, which they sent through and through our gunboats, and very soon sunk one--the Sachem — and blew up another. All our sharpshooters on one of the boats were captured, and it was only by prompt and rapid movements that the Commanding General, Franklin, managed to get away. Fr

[from the Liverpool Mercury, Sept. 10] The customs official at this port have not received any instructions to detain the steam rams which have been constructed by Messrs. Laird, so that the announcement of the Morning Post was premature, if not incorrect. Government officers have inspected the vessels, but that is all. [from the London morning Herald,Sept. 12.] We are informed that Earl Russell on Wednesday dispatched, by written missive, a positive order to Messrs. Laird to prevent these vessels leaving their yards without an ample explanation of their destination, and a substantial reference to the owner or owners for whom they are constructed. It is now affirmed, moreover, that the French ambassador has been appealed to as to the possibility or non-possibility of a French subject having ordered vessels of this stamp of an English shipbui
to respect these principles in their relations with him. The reply to France is the same in effect as that to England; but Prince Gortschakoff tells Drouyn de L'Huys that Russia cannot permit of provinces to which no international stipulations apply to being even incidentally alluded to. The Russian Emperor, in a speech, had promised reforms and extended privileges to Poland. The Russians sustained a defeat at Lutomierz on the 30th of August, and also at Magovien on the 12th of September. There appears to be trouble brewing between Germany and Denmark. The army of the latter is being placed on a war footing in consequence of certain action of the Federal Dict at Frankfort. Eleven Russian iron-plated gunboats, with the turrets, will be completed by spring. No more leave of absence were to be given to Russian naval officers.

an by your reference, on your third page, to art. 4 of the Cartel. All the officers and men whom I declared exchanged were "actually restored to our lines. " All the officers and men whom I requested you to select as equivalents for them in the exchange "had been restored to your lines." The parties whom I have declared exchanged have not been "returned to their paroles, as requested by Lieut.-Col. Ludlow." I do not understand by what sort of reading of the exchange notice of the 12th of September you make out that only "two officers (Gens, Stevenson and Bowen)" were exchanged. My letters of July 13, September 11, and September 26 will inform you of all the Vicksburg prisoners, officers and men, whom I have declared exchanged. Your objection to the declaration of the exchange of the general officers paroled at Vicksburg, because there were no equivalents of the same grade, is exploded by the provision of the Cartel which declares that "men and officers of lower grades may

Richmond and Danville Railroad. The eighteenth annual report of this Company embraces the reports of the President, Auditor and Superintendent, together with the proceedings of the meeting held on the 12th of September last. The report of the President, Mr. A. S. Buford, gives a brief history of the past year and a statement of the financial condition of the road, its earnings and its liabilities. The condition of the road way and rolling stock is also ably set forth. He also states that it is under consideration to alter the gauge of the York River road to the same gauge as that of the Richmond and Danville, and to connect these two roads through the lower part of the city. A corresponding change of gauge in the Piedmont road is deemed of vital importance. The Auditor's report is a tabular statement of the financial condition of the road.
