eath he has been known as "Colonel Orton." The Federal account represents him as a cousin of Gen. Lee, commanding the Confederate army on the Rappahannock. He was, also, we understand, a relative of Captain Wickham, at present of this post. The horse which he is said to have presented to the Federal Colonel Watkins was a fine black stud, which formerly belonged to Capt. Wickham, and well known to the citizens of Chattanooga. Col. Orton was recently married to Mrs. Lamb, formerly a Miss Hamilton, of Charleston, who accompanied her husband to the army a short time since. Col. Orton, by those who knew him well, was known to be brave to rashness. His courage was not tempered with prudence, or any regard whatever for consequences. He was not sent on the expedition which resulted in the loss of two brave men and useful officers, and his brother officers of our army were not even aware of his intentions.

s of yesterday states that passengers who arrived from Weldon Thursday afternoon brought the important intelligence that Hamilton a thriving village on the Roanoke river in Martin county, N. C., was shelled by three Yankee gunboats day before yesterdenceless people of this quiet village of their intention to shell the town. Previous to the approach of the gunboats to Hamilton, one or two Government steamers, laden with corn and other stores were captured. We were permitted yesterday aftern that a special courier had just arrived at that point with the intelligence that three gunboats were furiously shelling Hamilton, and as the Roanoke river is quite high they would probably attempt to reach Weldon. We are informed, however, that thet Weldon are much excited about this state of affairs and the militia have been called out for purposes of defence. Hamilton is a thriving village of Martin county, on the right bank of the Roanoke river, about ten miles east of Raleigh, and 4
The bombardment of Hamilton, N. C. --The bombardment of the village of Hamilton, N. C., a defenceless village, was a most barbarous affair. The following telegram to the Raleigh Telegraph gives the fullest account we have seen: Weldon, July 10.--A courier has just arrived here, and states that seven or eight Yankee gunboats came up the Roanoke yesterday, and, without the slightest notice, opened a bombardment upon the town of Hamilton. The result of the grand attack was one infant killed on the part of the inhabitants. A portion of Capt. Whitakers cavalry was before them, resisted their landing, and succeeded in killing several. Yankees, with but two or three wounded amongst his men. The Yankees are now in possession of Hamilton — always an undefended place.

cements are coming to Thomas, and this we had learned from other sources. As the bold and unscrupulous leader of the bushwhackers in East Tennessee, he has been a terror to the Southern people in that quarter. Among the papers found upon his person was a general pass from Burnside to go in and out of his lines at pleasure, and the following precious document: Headq'rs in the Field,Oct. 3d, 1863. Special Orders, No. --. Col. Clift is hereby authorized to proceed to Rhea, Hamilton, and the adjoining counties, for the purpose of recruiting for the U. S. service. By command of Maj.-Gen. Burnside. R. H. J. Goddard, Capt. and A. D. C., A. A. A. G. Now what will the virtuous Burnside say If Gen. Bragg should hang the aforesaid Col. Clift by the neck until he be dead, in retaliation for his execution of Confederate officers caught recruiting within his lines? Will it make any difference, in his judgment, if the Federal ox should be gored by the Confederate

elating to slaves." Gen. Sherman will leave Knoxville in a few days for Chattanooga. The Confederate cavalry are active between the two places. On Friday night about five thousand horses stampeded from the cavalry camp at Glesboror', near Washington. An attempt was made to stop them while passing over the bridge communicating with Washington, but did not succeed. Some of them fell into the river and were drowned. A number of them are making a hurried visit to Maryland. Gen. Hamilton, Military Governor of Texas, reached Brazos on the 2d inst; and would enter upon the duties of his office as soon as possible. A political emcute arose out of an attempt by the Abolition students in Michigan University to pass resolutions denouncing the recent visit of some Democratic students to Mr. Vallandigham. The Louisville Journal has advices, which it credits, that the rebel General Morgan was in Cumberland county, Ky., on the morning of the 7th inst., in company with fi

Expulsion of citizens from "Subjugated" towns. The first instalment of exiles from Knoxville has arrived at Atlanta, Ga., and is quartered in Washington Hall. There were about thirty persons in the lot, among them Rev. W. A. Harrison, a Presbyterian minister; Chas. McClung and wife, R. M. McPherson, wife, and five children; L. M Rogan, wife, and two daughters; Mrs. Wilson and daughter, Dr. Goodlip, Mrs. Hamilton and two children, and others. These persons were ordered to leave town in forty-eight hours, as will be seen from the following order: Office P. M. Gen. E. T., Knoxville, January 27th, 1864.

special spite of the rebels. Three times they have tried to destroy her, and now they have succeeded. It is feared that many others of the vessels on the blockade will follow the fate of the Housasouis — It is well known that the rebels have six or eight more of these infernal machines ready to pounce upon the fleet. The masts of the Housatonic are all that can be seen of her, and the gale which is now prevailing will do much to make a complete wreck of that once noble ship. Ensign Hamilton got into the second beat, and had he remained in it would have been saved; but as the ship careened over he jumped on The last ever seen of him he was floating among the fragments of the wreck, a corpse. At low tide the water is about six feet above the rail of the Housatonic. If the weather monocracy her guns and many valuable articles and the paymaster's safe will be recovered. She cannot be raised, as her stern is completely blown off, She was with coal and provisions, whi
