he night they captured and drove in our lines on the Jerusalem plankroad, but about midnight this picket line was reestablished, and so matters are now in status quo October, 29, 1864. To-day, details from our side have been busy burying the Yankee dead and attending their wounded. The country will learn, with regret, that General Hampton lost in this fight one son killed and one wounded, but the General attends to me duties with unflinching fidelity. X. Petersburg, Va., October 31--1 P. M. Last night, about ten o'clock, Major-General Mahone, having made the necessary preparations, determined to surprise the picket line in his front and capture it. Accordingly, he started forward two regiments to accomplish this work, one to the right and one to the left of the picket line, capturing the vidette posts, and, sweeping down the lines, brought in every mother's son of them some two hundred and fifty in all. After accomplishing this they retired. Somewhat later, the
nd has had to witness much suffering with very inadequate means of alleviating it. The sums entrusted to it for distribution have not been thrown broadcast, but they have been used with all possible care and discretion. This Society is one of the oldest charitable institutions in the city, and has always enjoyed the confidence of the public, to whose liberality it has not hitherto been necessary to appeal; but now that the treasury is empty, and the demands upon its charity are daily increasing, it is earnestly desired that those who are able to do so will contribute liberally. From those who are not able to give money, the Society will be thankful to fuel, provisions or clothing. The receipts for the year ending on the 31st of October were $17,500, of which $40,000 was from the city. The disbursements amounted to $17,406, of which $10.000 was for orders of visitors, $5,525 for fuel, and the balance for medicine, meal and cotton cloth.--The Association has in the treasury $103.
le, and most of the dissatisfaction generally expressed on such occasions has passed off in suppressed murmuring. The brigades mentioned above are already beginning to be filled up, conscripts and detailed men returning under the recent order. Numbers are arriving daily, and each of the regiments now numbers more than at any time since the fatal 12th of May. The men are in fine condition and good spirits; and that which most generally inspires men with good spirits occurred on the 31st of October. The whole army was mustered for pay on that day, and are now drawing the money which has been due them for many months; six months pay being now due to all, and to many ten or twelve months pay is in arrearage. Since we have been in this camp I am sorry to say that there has proven to be too much ardent spirits in this vicinity; but on yesterday Special Order No. 45 was issued very timely. I send a copy enclosed. It is published in another column.--Ed.] General Early could not ha

On Wednesday, four guerrillas, captured in Kentucky, by order or General Burbridge were sent to Mr. Harper's residence, and there shot to death in retaliation for the murder committed. On the 31st October, there was a raid on Alamsville, on the Memphis branch of the railroad between Russellville and Clarksville. Several stores of the place were robbed of goods valued at twelve thousand dollars. On Wednesday afternoon, twenty-five guerillas made a dash into Rocky Hill station, on the Nashville railroad.

Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy: Sir: I have the honor to report the arrival here of this ship, with the rebel steamer Florida in company. The Florida, with fifty-eight men and twelve officers, was captured about 3 o'clock on the morning of the 7th of October, in the Bay of San Salvador, Brazil, by the officers and crew of this vessel, without loss of life, as five of her officers, including her commander, and the remainder of her crew, we
ep the matter at Bahia a secret at St. Thomas, but it was accidentally revealed by a seaman of the Wachusett to one of the crew of the Kearsarge, and some hints of it got wind in the town, causing great excitement there. The Florida remained outside the bay, while the Wachusett entered to obtain coal. Acting Assistant Paymaster W. W. Williams, of the Wachusett; Surgeon Charlton, of the Florida; and sixteen of the crew of the privateer, were transferred to the Kearsarge, which sailed October 31, and arrived here at midnight on Monday, as previously reported. Paymaster Williams, being charged with dispatches for the Government, left by the earliest train yesterday morning for Washington.
