d to his detection to many other papers in several of the pay offices, it is thought that a large amount of money, as yet uncertain, has been thus obtained by the prisoner. The following abstract of the evidence embraces all the material facts yet elicited: Major Andrews testified: I am Major and Quartermaster of the Confederate States Army. I have noticed the prisoner for a long time hanging around my office and presenting pay rolls and descriptive lists for other people. On the 21st of August he presented the account of Capt. F. Morris, and in answer to my question why Capt. Morris did not himself present it, he replied that Capt. M. was in the city sick. I then told him he must prove the signature, which he did by producing from the Adjutant General's office a printed certificate given in such cases, and I then paid the claim, amounting to $520. Shortly after his departure, Mr. Pearson, a clerk in my office, told me he had compared the signature of the account I had just pa
dmiration of his enemies. A lady, seated beside his bed, remarked. "You must be tired of fighting, and will have a rest how." His eye kindled, his pale face flushed, and feebly raising his remaining arm above his head, he exclaimed, in clear, firm tones. "Not whiles I have another arm with which to strike a blow in our glorious cause" Noble sentiment, and nobly expressed! Regarding the funeral of young Dougherty, we will append the following notice, contained in the N. Y. Times, of August 21; "An event took place in Norfolk yesterday which many choose to look upon indifferently, but which all loyal people here regret exceedingly.--The Secessionists of Norfolk, who, beyond all question, have been every day becoming more rampant and defiant during the last two or three months, had a grand opportunity yesterday of exhibiting the intensity of their feelings and open sympathy for our enemies. "It was on the occasion of the burial of a private named Dougherty, of the Third

al Order of August 17th: "In accordance with instructions from the Secretary of War, persons in the employment of the Government are regarded as not liable to militia duty, and will be retained in their present occupations and employments until it is otherwise ordered and determined;" --and in accordance with your telegram of August 18, stating "the militia may volunteer before enrolling, if they volunteer for three years, or the war, they are entitled to bounty." And your letter of August 21st, stating "until mustered into the State service the militia can volunteer, and will receive bounty. If they enlist for three years or the war." I issued another General Order, which follows: "The General commanding announces, upon the authority of the Secretary of War to the militia in this department between 35 and 45 years of age, and not yet enrolled, that they may volunteer in the service of the Confederate State for three years or the war, and by so doing will receive a bounty of
Order from Gen. Lee to his army. --The following order has been addressed by Gen. Lee to the Army of Northern Virginia: Headq'rs Army Northern Va., August 13, 1863. General Orders, No. 83. The President of the Confederate States has, in the name of the people, appointed the 21st day of August as a day of fasting, and humiliation and prayer. A strict observance of the day is enjoined upon the officers and soldiers of this army. All military duties, except such as are absolutely necessary, will be suspended. The commanding officers of brigades and regiments are requested to cause Divine services, suitable to the occasion, to be performed in their respective commands. Soldiers! we have sinned against Almightily God. We have forgotten his signal mercies, and have cultivated a revengeful, haughty and boastful spirit.--We have not remembered that the defenders of a just cause should be pure in His eyes; that "our times are in His hands"--and we have relied t
of battle to renew the attack on Sumter, but the fort opened at long range from the east face, and they retired without attacking. To-day the Ironsides and two monitors kept up a fire on Wagner at intervals, and the Yankee sappers have begun to make approaches on that battery from the nearest work. A shot from Wagner disabled one of the Parrott guns, and the James Island batteries, under Lieut-Col. Yates, exploded two of the enemy's ammunition chests. [second Dispatch.] Charleston, August 21. --The fire of the enemy's land batteries has been heavier than ever to-day. A new battery of Parrott guns opened on Sumter this morning, and the fires have been concentrated upon the east battery and its guns. The south wall of the fort is now a pile of rubbish. On the north the wall is also crumbling into a heap of ruins. The flag has been shot away twice to-day, and six times during the attack. The flag-staff is shot off, and the flag flies from the ruins of the south wal
From Mississippi. Atlanta, Aug. 21. --A special to the Appeal, dated Canton the 20th, says that Grenada has fallen into the hands of a Federal force from the Yazoo, and another from North Junction. The rolling stock, of the New Orleans Railroad was at Grenada. The enemy met no opposition. Major Chalmers, in the absence of Colonel Slammers, fell behind the Yallabusha and fought the Yankee raiders three hours, when, our wagons being safe, and the Yankees from the South threatening our rear, we evacuated Grenada. The Yankees burned the rolling stock and captured Major Chalmers and a party of men. One-quarter of the town was burned. Fearing that Jackson was coming, the Yankees retreated precipitately. Both the large and fine railroad bridges over the Yallabusha were burned. General Hatch is reported dead. [The foregoing is all the translation the agent can make of the dispatch, which is almost unintelligible.]
r closing all liquor establishments at Knoxville. The rumored reinforcement of the Federals at Bridgeport is untrue. Rosecrans was at Murfreesboro' on Tuesday, Aug, 22. The report that Stanton and Halleck have been at Winchester is unfounded. Two regiments of Federal cavalry and two regiments of infantry are at Dunlop, 25 miles from Chattanooga. Our Generals have paid Springfield Junction, ten miles North of Nashville, a visit. A letter from near Chattanooga, Aug. 21st, gives an account of Rosecrans's advance movement: A heavy advance of the enemy was reported coming in the direction of Harrison yesterday evening. A scouting party of thirty were captured in the vicinity of Harrison last night. I have reliable information that a portion of Rosecrans's force occupied Duniap, in Sequatchie county, with a force of 15,000 strong yesterday. There is also a considerable force at Pikesville. Dunlop is a distance of thirty miles from this place. Rum
riday night for the purpose of another assault on Fort Sumter. The Passaic golaground, and so much time was lost in getting her off that the expedition was abandoned for the night. The rebels did not discover the position of the Passaic, although she was within a half mile from the fort.--The flag of Fort Sumter was shot away four times on Friday. A new flag is up this morning. Weather very hot, no ice to be had, and nothing but warm condensed water. Off Charleston, Friday Noon, August 21.; Fort Sumter still flies the rebel flag, but its west wall is a mass of ruins. Shells go into the fort and explode inside, some passing through the east wall, going in one side and coming out the other. An easterly storm prevailed on Tuesday to Wednesday, but broke away Thursday. We now have fine weather, and it is expected the monitors will go in force to attack Sumter this afternoon. The Ironsides and our wooden vessels have shelled Wagner and Gregg every day keeping them
Confederates. But should Gen. Lee remain inactive, or permit the Federal armies to sweep around into his rear — to flood the Confederacy and overlap all his communications — Richmond may become a mere capet morturn, and the South and all be lost. The London Globe regards peace as still distant, but the issue not doubtful. It says that the South may be mangled and exhausted, but must win in the end, temporary defeats to the contrary notwithstanding. The Confederate loan on the 21st of August rallied one per cent., closing at 26a28. The German Congress still continues in session. The King of Prussia persists in refusing to attend it. The United States Consul at Frankfort had displayed the Mexican flag. The Europe, of that city, explains that it was in pursuance of an arrangement by which, in case of the overthrow of Republican authority in Mexico, President Lincoln would allow Mexico to be represented in foreign countries by agents of the Washington Government.
