Earthquake in England. --A strong shock of an earthquake was felt in England on the night of the 5th inst. Doors were broken open, crockery ware broken and clocks, stopped. It extended to Bristol, to Taunton, to Exeter, to Swansea, and to many miles out at sea. In some places a deep rumbling noise was heard. At Nottingham the noise resembled the sound of a heavy carriage approaching. Mr. Charles Dickens describes the sensation he experienced: He says that he was awakened by a violent swaying of his bedstead from side to side, accompanied by a singular heaving motion. It was exactly as if some great beast had been crouching asleep under the bed and was shaking itself and trying to rise. The shock appears to have been felt the most in the midland and west midland counties.
Earl Russell's treatment of Mr. Mason. --The London Court Journal, of the 5th inst., says: It is asserted that Earl Russell returned Mr. Mason's letters unopened, and refused to see him. This is an unfounded accusation. Lord Russell simply declined to recognize the Confederate envoy in any official way, which would have been done had he received dispatches through Mr. Mason's hands from Mr. Davis, and granted Mr. Mason private diplomatic interviews.
ft camp, on the Rapidan, and moved in the direction of Madison C. H. One brigade, commanded by Col. J. R. Chambliss, of Gen. Fitz Lee's division, was ordered by Gen. Stuart to proceed promptly from the vicinage of Raccoon Ford and cross the river at Peyton's Ford and picket the Robertson river, and keep up the line of pickets unbroken until he could swing around by way, of Madison C. H. and cross the Robertson in this neighborhood. Gen. Stuart, leaving his bivouac early on the morning of the 10th, crossed the Robertson above James City, and captured a number of the enemy's cavalry. He soon came up with the 120th New York regiment of infantry on picket at Bethesia, and ordered a charge, and came nigh capturing the entire regiment. A few only made their escape by flying rapidly to the mountains. Late in the evening of the same day Gen. Stuart engaged a heavy force of the enemy's cavalry at James City, and succeeded in repulsing it, after a pretty hot engagement. From what your corre
d ordered a charge, and came nigh capturing the entire regiment. A few only made their escape by flying rapidly to the mountains. Late in the evening of the same day Gen. Stuart engaged a heavy force of the enemy's cavalry at James City, and succeeded in repulsing it, after a pretty hot engagement. From what your correspondent discovered of the movements of the enemy from Thoroughfare Mountain on that evening he anticipated a sanguinary engagement to ensue early on the next morning, the 11th inst.; but for some cause during the night the enemy evacuated James City, and retired slowly on a road leading to Culpeper C. H. A. signal message reached Gen. Stuart apprising him that the immense camps of the enemy near Culpeper C. H. were enveloped in dense smoke, and that Gen. Meade, with his whole army, was moving rapidly in the direction of the Rappahannock. Upon the receipt of this intelligence Gen. Stuart, with his command, pressed rapidly to Culpeper C. H., arriving there in time to e
Auburn, his object being to make a reconnaissance. On his arrival at this point he discovered that he was cut off from all communication with Gen. R. E. Lee, a corps of the enemy had moved up from Rappahannock bridge on the Auburn road, placing itself between Gen. Lee and himself.-- Gen. S. succeeded in sending some of his couriers through the enemy's lines, thereby enabling him to apprise. Gen. Lee of his position and what was transpiring around him. At early dawn the next morning, the 14th instant, Gen. Ewell moved forward with his command and attacked this corps and soon repulsed it. Gen Stuart also had a pretty sharp fight with the enemy. Gen. Gorden, with great bravery, led his old regiment, the 1st N. C., and captured a whole regiment of infantry; but a very superior force of the enemy arriving at this juncture, he was compelled to release it. In this charge, which has scarcely a parallel for gallantry and for the handsome manner in which it was executed, Gen. G. had the heel
The American question in England. Reply of Mr. Lindsay to Earl Russell--the acceptance of Maximilian, &c. At the annual meeting of the Middlesex (Eng.) Agricultural Society, on the 14th inst., addresses were delivered by the Lord Chief Baron and by Mr. Lindsay, M. P. The former spoke upon agricultural topics, but Mr. Lindsay, in responding to the toast, "The House of Commons," touched upon the American question. He said: He believed there were some great questions on which he was afraid the Government did not altogether represent the opinions and sentiments of the people or of the House of Commons. The noble Earl at the head of the Foreign Office, when speaking the other evening as a member of the Government and a leader of the Executive, said he thought the sympathies of the majority of the people of this country were in favor of a particular section of those who were now engaged in a great civil war in America. He might have been speaking his own sentiments when he
The late advance towards Abingdon. --The Bristol (Tenn.) Advocate gives us some further particulars of the second occupation of that place on the 15th ult. Writing on Thursday last, the editor says: The enemy advanced from Blountville on Thursday morning and entered Bristol at about 12 o'clock. The enemy from Zollicoffer formed a junction here about the same time and immediately pursued our retreating army in the direction of Abingdon. They only followed us some six miles, when Col. Witcher's cavalry met them and gave them battle. They thought they had run against a large army, and, alter exchanging some twenty or thirty shots from their artillery, retreated in this direction, saying that the rebels had been reinforced by at least 20,000 men. In this skirmish we killed three and wounded ten of their number. No casualties on our side. Had our forces then turned upon them, as they should have done, we could have killed and captured hundreds of their fleeing forces;
for Lee's army. Ewell was in command of the detachment, which was composed of nothing but infantry. The execution of Dr. D. M. Wright, of Norfolk, for killing United States officer some time since, took place at ten o'clock Friday morning at the Fair Grounds, one mile from the city. There were five regiments and one battery of artillery present. He was calm and self-possessed, and stated that be committed the crime without premeditation. A letter from Halifax, N. S. dated the 17th inst., says: The English steamer Giraffe, now called the General Robert Lee, arrived in this port early last week, after successfully running the blockade of Wilmington. The Giraffe is a long, low, side- wheel steamer, of great power, and made the passage from Wilmington to this port in five days and twenty hours. The Giraffe suffered considerable damage coming out of Wilmington. One shot tore off a large portion of her bulwarks, broke the patient windlass, and knocked down three men.--A
uccess that he had on other fields, driving them across Bull Run. In speaking of individual heroism, I cannot fail to mention the name of Capt. T. W. Haines, commanding company H. 9th Virginia cavalry, who was severely wounded at Manassas while gallantly leading his sharp shooters. His loss is deeply regretted by his command. The defeat of Gen. Kilpatrick at New Baltimore by Gen. Stuart was of the most complete character. Gen. Stuart attacked Kilpatrick early on the morning of the 19th, and walloped him severely, driving him ten miles or more, capturing two hundred and fifty prisoners; also, a large number of ambulances and wagons, filled with hospital stores, together with three large field desks containing all the official papers at Gen. Custer's headquarters Gen. Fitz Lee participated in this battle, and deserves much praise for his gallantry. An incident that I must not fail to chronicle took place on the arrival of our cavalry at Hazel river. This stream was very
The situation at Charleston. The Washington correspondent of the New York Times, writing to that paper on the 21st inst., gives the following facts relative to the attitudes of the naval and land commander at Charleston: People are deceived when they the temporary full of operations before Charleston is the result of a difference of opinion between the army and navy commanders. Nothing could be wider of the mark. It is only the importance of individuals, who in their eager desire ave Charleston in our possession, have been compelled to witness a necessarily slow, but thus for prosperous siege, that has led them to assign cause for a delay, the nature of which must be, for prudential reasons, withheld from them. It is of no use to deny that so far as the cooperation of the navy and army is concerned the relation is as firm as the military situation can possibly make it. Admiral Dahlgren will probably take the next forward step, which he has intimated his intention to do a
