obile Oct. 11. --A special dispatch to the Mobile advertiser and Register, of yesterday's date at Pensacola, states that five companies of Mississippians were engaged in the fight on Santa Rosa Island on Wednesday night, under the command of Col. Chalmers, with Captains Benton, McGowen, Peak, and Miller, and Lieutenants Watson, Myckle, Johnson, McGowen, Banks, and Smith. The casualties were three killed, among whom is private W. E. Welbur. Among the wounded are Capt. Benton and privates Stillman and Davis. The Georgia troops suffered severely. Col. Brown treats the wounded prisoners kindly. Latest Intelligence.--The Federals have 22 of our men prisoners, including the wounded. Lieut. Layne is in the enemy's hospital doing tolerably well, and it is hoped that his leg will be saved. Col. Brown, of Fort Pickens, will not respect our hospital, and Dr. Ford will not remove the sick until the hospital is fired into. Sixteen of our dead are now being bro
annexed extract from a Brownsville letter is published in the Austin Gazette, of the 24th ult., The harbor at Brazos is blockaded, and the big gate of the Confederate States closed up. An 1800 ton two-masted propeller, war vessel, stars and stripes flying, is at anchor there watching for prey. No attempt at landing has, as yet, been made, though to-day it has been too rough for any boat to live. There are eight vessels in port, with cargoes from the north, of $75,000, for Woodhouse & Stillman, of articles we need, and in all probability they will be cut out or burned. The port is entirely undefended. There are only the same forces here now as when I last wrote you, and the next thing will be a landing, and you will hear of the taking of Fort Brown, with the command as prisoners of war, and twenty-two pieces of artillery as trophies. A regular Cape Hatteras affair, to be ridiculed in the whole Northern press. The Houston Telegraph, of the 27th ult., says: The Ga

re completed Many wealthy citizens were among those who drew "prizes." On Wednesday and Thursday four hundred and fifteen men were drafted at Hartford. The City Hall was filled by an anxious crowd of persons.--Punctually at 9 o'clock, Captain Stillman made his appearance at the head of the Board of Selectmen, accompanied by clerks with books, and boys with boxes. A large platform at the end of the hall was used for the purpose of holding the selectmen, reporters policemen, and tables upon which the boxes were placed. In these boxes were placed some 3,100 slips of card, each having a number printed on it from number one up. These numbers Mr. Stillman proceeded to say had been carefully examined by the Board of Selectmen. Mr. Europ being over age, no members of his family being to be drafted, and other-wise disinterested, was chosen to draw the numbers from the box. The enrollment lists upon which the names of those liable to draft was arranged alphabetically, and numbered fr

Sir, it is that he was a coward. "'General Washington a coward?' screamed one of the opposite orators, in a voice of thunder. 'General Washington a coward? Who so base as dare say it? Look at him at the battle of the Nile; look at him at Waterloo, the Cowpens, on the plains of Marathon, at the Pyramids, at Stillman's defeat, at Bad Age; and, Sir, look at him at the battle of New Orleans!' "'General Washington at the battle of New Orleans?' interrupted another debater, gesticulating violently. 'Mr. Speaker, is there such an ignoramus in the house? ' Sir, any schoolboy knows that the battle of New Orleans was fit before General Washington was born. Let the gentleman read Plutarch's lives, the lives of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence, or let him read Arkwright's History of the Black
