In the Kentucky Legislature Messrs. Bell, Guthrie, Burnham, Butler, and Buckner, are candidates for the U. S. Senate. George Jones, once proprietor of the Richmond Theatre, has been tried in Boston and convicted of being "a common scold." Mrs. Gen. Gaines, who was connected with the celebrated Gaines will case, has been ordered by the Yankee authorities to return to the South. Eighteen car loads of coffee passed through Petersburg, Va., on Friday, en route for General Lee's army.
ulars. Lieuts. Whitelt and Green, of the 26th Indiana regiment, captured at Morganza, had escaped from Tyler, Texas, and reached New Orleans. The trick by which they escaped was pretending to get angry at something said or done by the Confederate officer in charge, and surrendering their paroles, and then escaping by means of paroles borrowed from two other officers. They report upwards of 100 Yankee officers at Tyler. These men learned on their way that Mouton's division had been at Gaines's landing for the purpose of crossing arms and ammunition from this side, which they successfully accomplished. The Picayune copies a letter written off Wilmington, by which it appears that the gunboat blown up near Georgetown was the Iron Age. She got ashore in chasing a blockade runner, and was destroyed on account of not being able to get her afloat. Miscellaneous.

Military funeral. --The funeral of Captain Edward S. McCarthy, of the First Richmond Howitzers, who was killed in battle near Gaines's farm, on the evening of the 4th instant, took place from the First Baptist Church at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. After an impressive sermon from the pastor, (Rev. Dr. Burrows), his remains were followed to their last resting place, at Hollywood Cemetery, by the relatives and friends of the deceased and an escort of the military, headed by the Armory Band.
efore operations against Mobile could have been commenced, it would have been necessary, to have reduced that work, which is a very strong one, and which was provisioned for six months. Until it was reduced their transports, with provisions could not come in nor leave Mobile bay. The work is situated on a barren flat point, commanding the country around it as far as its guns could throw, and could not have been taken by a land assault. Fort Powell, which is on the same side of the bay with Gaines, was evacuated by our forces and destroyed, as it was no longer of any use after the fall of the latter. Fort Morgan will doubtless now have to be given up, thus leaving the entrance to Mobile bay open. We have before stated that the passage of these forts did not place Mobile in imminent peril, and we may now add that neither does the fall of these works do so. The Yankees have not commenced on their work — the obstructions have not been reached, and, in fact, the "siege of Mobile" lies s
forty yards in front of our works. They attempted an assault afterwards, but were repulsed with considerable loss. Both armies are engaged in strengthening their defensive works. A few days since fifty rebel deserters attempted to come into our lines in a body, but our troops, not understanding their intentions, fired on them, and twenty-nine of the number were killed or wounded. Miscellaneous. A dispatch from Fort Smith, Arkansas, says that the rebels, under Generals Cooper, Gaines and Standwaite, were defeated near that place on the 31st ultimo. They were in full retreat, pursued by the Union forces. Lincoln has revoked General Hunter's order banishing rebel sympathizers from Central Maryland. General Hooker has not been assigned to any command yet. He will visit New York. Admiral Dahlgren has published a letter attempting to prove that his son, Ulric, did not write the orders found on his person. The so-called Governor Hahn, of Louisiana, has arr
gunboat — the Philippi, which I subsequently learned. The Richmond, Hartford and Brooklyn, in line of battle, followed by the remainder of the fleet, pushed by Fort Morgan under full headway, where they were encountered by the Tennessee, Morgan, Gaines and Selma. "The Tennessee and the other vessels steamed in close range of the advancing force, and poured a heavy fire into the leading ships. After a desperate engagement between the fleet, the Gaines retired to Fort Morgan in a sinking coking an armada formidable enough to swallow our little fleet at one gulp, and without an effort. the following is the force engaged on our side: Name of vessel.No of guns. Tennessee, iron-clad ram,6 Morgan, side-wheel gunboat,10 Gaines, side-wheel gunboat,10 Selma, side-wheel gunboat,6 Four vessels, guns32 Notwithstanding this great disparity of force--one iron-clad and three wooden gunboats against twenty of the most formidable ships in the Yankee navy — our little flee
fficer from the steamer Morgan reports the fleet passed the fort without replying to its fire.--The large vessels had each a double-Ender lashed alongside. As they passed, the Tennessee stood out to engage them, followed by the Morgan, Selma and Gaines. The Selma and Gaines at once ran alongside the Hartford and engaged her, she fighting them as they ran. After passing out of reach of the fort, the Hartford cast loose the double-Ender, which the Selma at once attacked; but after a severe fight its inner line of defences, and causes the abandonment of the reasonable hope that if it had been held the fleet would have been forced to run to sea again by the guns of Fort Morgan for its supplies. The casualties in the fleet and at port Gaines. Fort Morgan, August 6. --I communicated this morning by flag of truce with the enemy's gunboat bound for the Pensacola hospital, with Admiral Buchanan and our wounded on board, and obtained the following correct list of casualties from D

The forts of Mobile Bay. The mystery of the surrender of Fort Gaines is not yet explained. Some persons ask why did not General Page remain at that fort and prevent its surrender? Military authorities say he did not because Fort Morgan, which he commanded in person, was a more important defence than Gaines — the latter being of so little value as a protection to Mobile that the wonder now is that it was ever built. Fort Morgan is only half a mile from the channel, while Fort Gaines is three miles from it — the two forts being three and a half miles apart. Uneasy because of the appearance of things at Fort Gaines, and unable to get an answer to his signals, General Page went over to it in an open boat, not without peril, and was forced to return to his own fort during the night. The orders he left have already been stated. They were not obeyed; and at half-past 9 o'clock next day, to his great surprise, the Yankee flag was hoisted over Fort Gaine
