says, and his report is endorsed favorably by Captain Mills and General Ruger, that the timely arrival of his troops doubtless prevented a grand ordering all the disposable force of the army to be sent to General Ruger to be employed in maintaining peace in South Carolina. In mae following order was sent by Cameron, the Secretary of War to General Ruger: D. H. Chamberlain is now Governor of South Carolina beyon otherwise directed. U. S. Grant. And in forwarding this order General Ruger is directed, in obeying these instructions to advise with Goverposition. He sent in no annual message this year. Meanwhile General Ruger awoke to the conviction that he had been engaged in a very dirthe hands of her enemies—his orders had been misunderstood. So with Ruger. His soldiers were put in the State House, not to interfere in the all their wants. But this contest was soon brought to an end. General Ruger informed General Hampton that the Edgefield and Laurens' delega
bout three P. M. Schofield became convinced that Hood would make no attack at Columbia, but was pushing his principal columns direct upon Spring Hill. He thereupon gave orders for the withdrawal of Cox's force at dark, and pushed on himself with Ruger's troops to open communication with Stanley. The head of the main column followed close behind. Schofield struck the enemy's cavalry at dark, about three miles south of Spring Hill, brushing them away without difficulty, and reaching Spring Hill at seven. Here he found Stanley still in possession, but the rebel army bivouacking within eight hundred yards of the road. Posting one brigade to hold the road, he pushed on with Ruger's division to Thompson's station, three miles beyond. At this point the camp fires of the rebel cavalry were still burning, but the enemy had disappeared, and the cross-roads were secured without difficulty. The withdrawal of the force at Columbia was now safely effected, and Spring Hill was passed withou
Roanoke affair.news from Missouri&c, &c., &c. We are in possession of the New York Herald, of the 10th inst., and the Philadelphia Inquirer of the same date, and from them we make up the following interesting news summary: The Roanoke affair. Intelligence has reached us of the commencement of an attack on Roanoke Island, by Commodore Goldsborough, of the navy, on the morning of Friday, the 7th inst. The account comes through Norfolk and Fortrees Monroe, and is from the rebel General Ruger, commanding at Norfolk. He reports that the Union forces had been twice repulsed, but that fighting was going on when the courier left. Now, as the attack upon Roanoke island was to have been made by the Union gunboats, and a portion of our troops were only to be landed after the batteries had been silenced, we do not see how there could have been a repulse of our forces. The gunboats were all afloat, and could not be repulsed by the forts if the fight was going on at the last account
r several hours on yesterday in the examination of George W. Etam, Curtis Pridgeon, and James Tyrer, charged with the larceny of a number of Confederate Treasury Notes, and the counterfeiting and passing off a number as true and genuine. The particulars connected with the several cases have been given heretofore at the time of the arrest of the parties, and it is deemed needless to recapitulate the evidence, which was on this occasion made stronger by the introduction as a witness of Flem. Ruger alias Wm. Crawford, who was implicated in the transaction and gave himself up to justice. His evidence, which, as against the accused, must be considered perfectly reliable, will be of great benefit to the Government in enabling its officers to determine the degree of guilt respectively attaching to each of the offenders; all of whom were yesterday committed for trial before the C. S. District Court next week. The Grand Jury of this Court will set on Tuesday next to take cognizance of the
ene of action as briefly as a double-quick movement could carry me. I led into action the 2d Massachusetts regiment, Col. G. L. Andrews; 3d Wisconsin regiment, Col. Ruger, and the 27th Indiana regiment. Col. Colgrove. I should state that five companies of the 3d Wisconsin regiment, previously deployed as skirmishers in this ordered by you to join Gen. Crawford's command, which, after engaging the enemy with much gallantry, had been compelled to retire. I arrived in the timber as Colonel Ruger was rallying his men, and added them to my command. The enemy were posted in the edge of the woods, on the opposite side of a newly mown wheat field; distance centre of our line of battle until near daylight. In conclusion, I ought — as I thus do — to mention the names of Col. Andrews, 2d Massachusetts regiment; Col. Ruger, 3d Wisconsin regiment, and Col. Colgrove, 27th Indiana regiment, as deserving praise for gallant conduct. I by no means limit my commendation to the names men
