''Calvert' majority in the district, 161.
The NVj Department had received dii
patches from Capt. Rowan, of the steamer Paw
nee, enclosing 'reports of Lieut. Chaplin, from
which it appears that he had' reconnoitered
nt severs! points where' he and liis small party
drove in tome secession mounted pickets, when
returning musket shots were tired at them.
This compliment was acknowledged by dis
charges ofv&ntster shot from the Reliance.
Lieut. Chaplin captured nine boats, which bad
evidently been used for the transportation of
secessionists over the Potomac. H destroyed
five of these boats.
The town of Booueville, Mo., where Governor
Jackson made a, Bland against the Federal
troops, and which Gen. Lyon has taken, is a
thriving place of 4,000 inhabitants, situated on
a bluff Dank, on the south side of the Missouri,
river, and is connected, by good roads, with the
Southwestern part of the State. It is about 20
miles above Jefferson City.
The delay in the payment of the troops here
has been occasioned by the fact that the regi
mental oncers were, lor the most part, unaoie
to get their rolls into such shape as that pay
ments could be properly made upon them j not
by a lack of money in the treasury. As they
have at length straightened them, the several
regiments will be promptly paid.
The English census returns show the popula

an increase of 440,793 npon 1851. The emi

Lieut. David Lewis, of tho Metropolitan Rifles,
were proceeding up the canal ith others in
a boat containing provisions for the Hlfles,
now near Seneca, Irvin pulled out a revolver,
which he showed to those around htm, and, as
ho was examining it, one barrel was acci
dentally discharged, the ball taking effect in
the spine of Lewis, inflicting asevere and
painful wound, which , it is feared will prove
fatal. The surgeon of the third Michigan regi
ment was early on the ground, and did all
that could be done to ameliorate the condition
of the sufferer. The wound was probed,' but
the surgeon was not able to find the ball.
Lieut. Lewis was conveyed to the Georgetown
Hospital yesterday afternoon, where ha will be
kindly cared for. Irvin and Lewis were

two since, a young gentleman, who was paying
his "distresses" to one of the many belles of
the sixth ward, had a quarrel with his " dearly
loved," in which he used language which gave
the lady offence, and she immediately proceeded
to a neighboring magistrate's office and pro

with using iusulting language. The warrant
was issued, and served by an officer (he de

but before the time fixed for the trial arrived,
tho parties had " made up," and the lady came
to tho officer and withdrew the charge, thus
spoiling a heap of fun which was expected to
come out on the trial. It is said that the par
