d Calvin, and two other active secessionists, who were arrested by a refugee Tennesseean named John Smith, who is now in the patriot ranks of our State. John Smith, when called upon to decide betweenJohn Smith, when called upon to decide between the Union and the Confederacy, lived in or near Huntsville, and loyally determined to adhere to the Stars and Stripes. Jeff. Davis' proclamation warning all to leave the Confederacy who did not sympat the same time came the blockade order of Gov. Harris, forbidding any one to quit the State. John Smith was then seized by the five men who are here as prisoners, aided by some secession cavalry, anle, which is about 60 miles from our camp, whence they started. Pushing boldly into the town, John Smith and his comrades succeeded in capturing the five prisoners, and immediately commenced their rewretches who had acted so inhumanly. The secession robbers were transferred to this city, and John Smith has gone into Tennessee again with a squad of Union soldiers, where he hopes to make more capt

Our mother nursed thee at her breast When she herself was young; And thou shouldst still have succor'd her, Though fiery serpents stung; Virginia Dare, the first-born bud Of the true Saxon vine, And old Powhatan, hoary chief, Who led his warrior-line, And brave John Smith, the very soul Of chivalry and pride, And Pocahontas, princess pure, The font of Christ beside, Dreamed they that thou wouldst start aside, When Treachery's tocsin rang? And in her heaving bosom fix Thy matricidal fang? Thou shouldst around her fourscore years Have bent with hovering care, Who steadfast by thy cradle watched, And poured the ardent prayer.

o my entire satisfaction. I would respectfully request that you appoint a board of officers to examine into and report upon the cause of the bursting of the Parrott gun. Surgeon Van Gieson's report. The following is the report of Assistant Surgeon Van Gieson, of the Galena, giving an account of the killed and wounded in the action: United States Steamer Galena.--Killed: Thomas Ready, Captain foretop; James H. Weber, third-class boy; Michael Many, landsman; Martin Milbery, do.; John Smith, ordinary seaman; Robert Boyd, do.; Richard A.

amer Mississippi; was in the action with Forts Jackson and St. Philip; the Chalmettes; Vicksburgh; Port Hudson; and present at the surrender of New-Orleans; was on board the Ironsides at Charleston. Joined the Richmond in October, 1863. 18. John Smith, second, (Captain of Top,) is recommended for coolness and good conduct as captain of a gun in the action in Mobile Bay on the morning and forenoon of August fifth, 1864. He was on board the Varuna when she was sunk by the rebel vessels, afternnot be cited so as to authorize me to recommend their obtaining medals: 1. William Phinney, Boatswain's Mate, as captain of a gun, showed much presence of mind and coolness in managing it, and the great encouragement he gave the crew. 2. John Smith, Captain Forecastle, was first captain of a gun, and finding that he could not sufficiently depress his gun when alongside of the rebel iron-clad Tennessee, threw a hand holystone into one of the ports at a rebel using abusive language against
battlefields before Richmond, and in the great repulse of the rebels at Antietam. Looking along the ranks of the Eighty-eighth New-York volunteers, as I did with a mournful pride, the day after the assault, I missed, besides Major William Horgan, Lieut. Thomas Murphy, Adjutant John R. Young, and Lieut. McCarthy; and the only consolation to me in the contemplation of these losses arises from the fact that such men as Col. Patrick Kelly, Licut.-Col. Quinlan, Captain Patrick K. Horgan, Captain John Smith, Capt. Burke, Capt. Nagle, and other intelligent and brave officers like them are still to the good work. In the Sixty-third New-York volunteers I have lost, for some time at all events, the efficient services of Major Joseph O'Neill--services that were ever most promptly and heartily rendered where-ever and whenever his military obligations or patriotism required them. Had I time it would be, indeed, a pleasing duty for me to speak, in connection with the Sixty-third, of such offi

e is ready for service and the stage of water in the Tennessee will permit. I have sent down the Mississippi to bring up the iron-clad Neosho. The loss of the services of the four monitors sent from this squadron to Rear-Admiral Farragut will be much felt, especially as several of the iron-clads are out of order. The turtle iron-clads are still deficient of their side armor, which was removed at Alexandria, Louisiana, and are now stationed along the Mississippi, to prevent the rebel General Smith from crossing troops to the east side of the river, which it is the object of the inclosed confidential circular from General Canby, dated October eighteenth, to prevent, and which we have so far been able to do. I have organized a lively patrol of the Mississippi River, and will immediately make arrangements to keep the gunboats on the Tennessee River supplied with ammunition nearer the point of their operations than this place, on which they have heretofore depended.
