Doc. 163.-the battle near Fulton, Mo. Fulton telegraph narrative. Fulton, Mo., July 29, 1862. on Sunday, July twenty-seventh, Col. Guitar, with parts of three companies, arrived in this city about five A. M., and after arranging matters here, started to Col. Porter's command, supposed to be at Brown's Spring, about ten miles north of this city. He left here with two hundred men and two pieces of artillery, about eleven A. M., and arrived in the vicinity of the rebel camp about half-past 2 P. M. ; and as there was a thick underbrush, Col. Guitar had the cannon placed in position some four hundred yards from their camp, dismounted his cavalry and deployed them, advancing in force towards the spring, where the enemy was encamped. After some half-hour of cautious advancing, it was found that the enemy had decamped, from all appearances only about ten minutes before our men reached it, leaving on the ground quite a lot of provisions. Colonel Guitar camped on the ground th

, that many of the I know it kind may exclaim, Why I don't see any invention in the matter, for it has been long known that if a chance was got at a ship with so much powder under her, she was bound to go up. But then if so simple, why did not Fulton or Bushnell, in the early history of our country, or the Russians during the Crimean war, stamp the fact upon the times, so as to render it, as it is now, a system of defence that no nation dares neglect. And how did it become so? I trust terformance of torpedo duty day and night, that fell upon me during the war, he would realize that as late as the summer of 1863, some of the ablest men of the day did not regard torpedo warfare as worthy of consideration, and the very attempts of Fulton and of Bushnell, and of the Russians, were used by those men in argument that my attempt would also be fruitless. Much of the light has to struggle through mediums of darkness and resistance, and gradually breaks in upon us. Our theories rarel

t 8 o'clock a charge was ordered, when the Twenty-first Georgia, Major Hooper, and Twenty-first North Carolina, Lieutenant-Colonel Fulton, gallantly advanced in the face of a terrific fire of musketry--Colonel Fulton taking his flag and displaying mColonel Fulton taking his flag and displaying most conspicuous bravery. The fire was the more fatal from.the circumstance that the Fifteenth Alabama, being in a skirt of wood, did not advance — not hearing the order. This exposed the two regiments to a front and cross fire from the enemy, who or men against the sky. They rose up when our line was within thirty steps, and delivered a most deadly fire, in which Colonel Fulton was mortally wounded. The two regiments held their ground most resolutely, until ordered to fall back to the fencethis action General Ewell was wounded. I cannot omit to mention here the truly gallant and heroic bearing of Lieutenant-Colonel Fulton in this as in former engagements. He fell in the desperate charge mortally wounded, and died the same night, r

Federal commander at Corinth, had stated in his presence that Vicksburg was to be surrendered to the Federal army on the 4th of July proximo. Before leaving the neighborhood of Guntown, on the 18th, Major W M. Inge was ordered from Tupelo with one hundred and twenty-five select men, to be joined by Captain Warren, who had been sent with an equal number to scout along the enemy's lines eastwardly from Camp Davis, with instructions to repel a small raid of the enemy reported moving towards Fulton, which was done by him after some slight skirmishing, capturing two wagons, an ambulance, and eight horses, the enemy destroying another wagon in which was forty or fifty long-range guns and three thousand rounds of ammunition, taken out by them to arm some tories.

he national government from a degrading influence, hostile to civilization, which, whenever it shows itself even at a distance, is brutal, vulgar, and mean; an unnatural tyranny, calculated to arouse the generous indignation of good men. Of course no person, unless ready to say in his heart that there is no God, can doubt the certain result. His health continuing to decline, he was advised by his physicians to seek relief abroad; and early in March following he took passage in the steamship Fulton, at New York, for Havre. His last word before sailing was on behalf of that fair territory where the friends and the foes of the freedom of the colored race were in conflict. In a letter to Mr. Redpath, dated on board The Fulton, March 7, 1857, he said, Do any sigh for a Thermopylae? They have it in Kansas; for there is to be fought the great battle between freedom and slavery, by the ballot-box I trust; but I do not forget that all who destroy the ballot-box madly invoke the cartridge-

The Fifty-fourth alone destroyed fifteen locomotives, one passenger, two box and two platform cars with the railway supplies they held. After completing this work, the regiment returned to Singleton's. Every purpose of the movement having been accomplished, on April 21 the return to Georgetown was ordered. It was about one hundred miles distant by the proposed route through Manchester and Fulton Post-Office. Early that morning three companies of the One Hundred and Second United States Colored Troops on picket were attacked by two hundred of the enemy, whom they repulsed. The column started at 6 A. M., the Second Brigade in advance, moving over the Santee River road southwesterly. Our rear-guard was the Twenty-fifth Ohio, the enemy following and attacking near Manning's plantation, but they were driven back. John L. Manning, a former governor of South Carolina, was at home. H
