concentrating, and Gen. Porter rode in front of the army, ordering the two wings of Morrell and Sykes and Couch to concentrate, and withdrawing Meagher placed him in a position on the left to flank the approaching columns, with orders to charge at advantageous opportunities, and giving the same orders to Butterfield's brigade, of Morrell's division, and Col. Warren, of Gen. Sykes's, and to General Abercrombie, in Gen. Couch's. At this moment Gen. Sickles's brigade came up, proffered by Gen. Heintzelman, and was received by Gen. Porter, and conducted to a point a little neglected. The engagement now became a scene of madness — a force of thirty thousand contending against fully three times their own number, plunging in with rapid charges and deafening shouts, and successfully driving them from the field. A brilliant charge of the New York Forty- fourth, under Col. Rice, captured a Secesh flag, with the motto "Seven Pines." Our troops were in no condition to follow the enemy beyond
nt of Fort Magruder, until he met the enemy's skirmishers who fired at him as he was riding on the road. The enemy had brought up some horses and was dragging the gun out of the mud. Finding it impossible to recapture it, the Due returned considerably disappointed. The Come acted as aid to General Stoneman at the battle of Williamsburg, and, as well as the Prince himself, rendered valuable services. It was the Due, it appears, who was the first, to open communication between Sumner and Heintzelman at the battle of Williamsburg. Then, in the subsequent operations on the peninsula, they continued to take an active part. Riding with the General always, they accompanied him on the field at the battle of Fair Oaks. In the series of battles during the past two weeks they have had a great deal of experience. Down on the English officers. The Yankees are down on their old friends. A letter from the "grand army" says: Of late, quite a number of English army officers have
well supplied, and with so much clan. It is worth to-day in a hard fight twice as much as it ever was before the battle of Gettysburg. A letter from Parnestown, Md., on the upper Potomac, dated to-day, says: Early yesterday morning from 200 to 500 rebel cavalry, said to be a portion of White's command, crossed the Potomac between Watt's branch and Muddy creek, and started towards the cross-roads, two miles from the river, where there had been a rendezvous of Scott's Nine Hundred. Gen. Heintzelman, who had arrived there on a tour of inspection, pursued them up the tow-path of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, pressing them so hard that they were compelled to recross the river below Edwards's Ferry. Miscellaneous. The Yankees have dates from Charleston to the 15th inst. One of their rumors is that the city had been destroyed after three days shelling.

Affairs in Rosecrans's army are reported to be without interest.
from his front Saturday afternoon, towards Smithfield, and that it was probable they were abandoning the Shenandoah Valley. General Sheridan says that he captured one hundred prisoners and killed and wounded one hundred and fifty of the enemy, facts which would indicate that there was a severe fight as the rebels were retreating. Stanton, in a dispatch to Dix, dated 29th of August, says: The latest intelligence from the Shenandoah Valley represents that a large part of the rebel force there has been withdrawn to Richmond. The latest reports from General Sherman represent that thus far his recent movement to occupy the rebel lines of supply has been successful. Miscellaneous. General Heintzelman has issued an order forbidding the shipment of arms, etc., into Ohio, Indiana and Illinois for sixty days. Beast Butler has gone North on a short furlough.

The armed resistance to the draft in the Northwest--the Indiana conspiracy. Lincoln's draft for-five hundred thousand men is to take place next Monday; the Yankee authorities have become aware that a formidable secret organization, pervading all the States, is in existence, the object of which is to resist the enforcement of the draft and defeat its purposes.

Governor Morton made an address in Indianapolis, August 22d, in which he discussed at length the recent development regarding the alleged conspiracy and the finding of arms, ammunition, &c. He says: For eighteen mont
