three of his brothers, who had been in the Eighth North-Carolina regiment, were on the island in civil costume. Such are they! To whomsoever is king they are ready to bow. In the medical department of the rebel forces several prisoners were made. Among them are Dr. Walter Coles, Surgeon-in-chief of the post. Dr. Coles was two years resident physician to Bellevue Hospital. Dr. Busby, of Raleigh, N. C., and his assistant, Dr. A. T. Gordon, of the Wise Legion. Dr. R. H. Worthington, Murfreesboro, of the Thirty-first North-Carolina regiment. These gentlemen said they had about twenty-five wounded in all, in their hospital. Lieut. S. C. Kinney, of Staunton, Va., an officer of the engineeer corps, was also among the prisoners at this house. The wounded rebels were carried about two miles to the rear, to a farm-house on the eastern shore, at Shallowbag Bay. The following were among the number: O.

public can then decide where the responsibility should properly rest. The Roanoke reverses. To the Editor of the Richmond Examiner: The independent conduct of your journal emboldens me to venture a criticism upon the late reverses at Fort Henry and Roanoke Island, which may be grating to ears polite, but is rendered necessary by the condition of the country. It is high time that these surrenders should cease. for, considering the character of the war in its consequences to us, they have been truly amazing, commencing with that of the cavalry at Alexandria down through that of Col. Pegram, at Rich Mountain, that of Com. Barron, at Hatteras, etc., etc., to the present lamentable instances. At Fort Henry a Brigadier-General, unwounded, having a garrison almost intact, lowers his flag over a dozen guns of the largest calibre, and with a hackneyed compliment, yields up his bloodless sword. How withering and humiliating to our Southern manhood was the sorrowful reply of the

But to-morrow will decide whether spongy-shored Carolina or sterile, rocky-coasted New-England produces the better men. At sundown this evening, the signal to come to anchor was displayed from the flag-ship, and our anchors were dropped in about two fathoms water, and within ten miles of the southern point of Roanoke Island, which, aKilled.

Capt. Wise, and several up-stairs. The body of Wm. B. Selden was found within the field-work pierced through the head by a bullet. He was formerly in the U. S. Navy, and was in command of a gun when shot. Lieut. Pottier, of the Second regiment, Wise Legion, was wounded by a bullet in the leg, lying within the breastwork. He said he arrived at Roanoke Island the night before, with the battalion of the Wise Legion, commanded by Col. Frank Anderson. His regiment had been stationed at Fort Hill, near Washington, until ordered to North-Carolina. His estimate of the forces on the Island was three thousand two hundred rebels. The body of Capt. Robert Coles, of the Second regiment, Wise Legion, was also found inside the stormed work. A bullet passed into his breast a little above his heart. His features were calm, and his eyes partially open. His body was sought by a cousin, who was a surgeon in the confederate army. Dr. Walter Coles said the parents of Capt. Coles resided in

can alone overcome this Federal ally that assails our real. Gen. Wise's Legion was not constituted like other brigades, he was required to raise his own command, and there never was one company assigned to him by the War Department. He recruited three full regiments and one battalion of eight companies of infantry, eight companies of cavalry, and four companies of artillery. And notwithstanding that he recruited and armed this command, one regiment was separated from it and sent to South-Carolina, without even the respect of consulting him; another divided and dissipated — his cavalry and artillery are now ordered to North-Carolina, and General Wise ordered to report at Manassas with three companies of infantry. If, by this order to report at Manassas, the Department mean to insinuate that any portion of the responsibility of the Roanoke disaster belongs to Gen. Wise, let Congress call for the correspondence between the Department and Gen. Wise, and the public can then decide wh

A post report for the month of December, made by Major Hill, in command of Pork Point battery, was found signed by Major Hill, in which he returns three officers absent, captured at Hatteras by the enemy since August twenty-eighth, 1861. These are Capt. L. S. Johnson, Lieuts. J. T. Lassell and J. W. Poole. One of these, I understand, is again in our hands, having been liberated from Fort Warren, and having rejoined his regiment. His name is Capt. L. S. Johnson.

We immediately took possession of their arms, equipments, ammunition and stores. We have captured two hundred and thirty commissioned officers and forty-four companies — about three thousand prisoners, with three thousand stand of arms and equipments, and two or three large magazines full of ammunition. We have the flower of the chivalry here; they come from Texas, (the famous Texan Rangers,) North-Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Mississippi, and they look as if they felt very much down in the mouth to find out we came from Massachusetts. They said they thought we could not fight, but they found out we could fight like devils. General Parke's brigade took and have possession of one of the forts that was not fought, and it is a fine work, and with Yankees in it cannot be taken; but they surrendered without firing a gun.
