An Incident at the Quaril-tfouse.
I wish to rclato an inoldout that I witnessed
a fow days ago at tho guard-house. An ofll
cor of tho army entered and Inquired of tho
olllcer. of tho guard. If he had not in his pos
sesion a prlvato of the twenty-sixth Pennsyl
vania regimont. Tho private was soon pro-
uucea a man 01 loriy, or mo tmeriuu isio.
" How oaino you here sir t" Interrogated the
oftloer. The man abashed at mooting what
now appeared to do nis ooionei, stammered
out the confession that he had managed In
somo way to escape from his regiment, to get
a " dram." Of oourso tho dolectablo rot gut
made Patrick oblivious to all torrestrlal things,
and our vigilant olty patrol gavo him quar
tets in tho guard-house.
" You havo left your homo and your friends,"
continued his oolonel." to come bore to fight
for your country; and now is it not too bad to
think you have disgraced yourself, your coun
try, and your regiment, by such conduct?
wnai wouiu you tniiiK, anu now wouiu you
feel. If your colonel was to do bo! Would
you like following such a colonel to tho field
of battle! No, you would not. Just think of
your conduct. It Is too bad, too bad." Tbe
manner of tho Colonel was at once thatof the
gentlomau and the Christian. The erring pri
vate was subdued.
Overwhelmed with a eeuso of shame for
himself, and rctpeul and (ore for his colonel, he
humbly promised nover, never, to bring upon
blmsolt', his colonel, and his country, such dis
grace again. Awl he never vail, at least while
under that colonel's oommand.
Tho practical 1 eOeollon from this little Inci
dent, for which mainly I havo brought It to
light, Is, that it Is better to seek by kindness to
reclaim the erring, than by bruto fiu-co ; aud
that soldiers will lormno oxceptlon to this rule.

DaujsrmvWe, Md., Sept. 19. Thore has been
do ssrlous demonstration on the part of the
Confederates within the past forty-eight hours,
and as far as can be learned, everything along
the upper Potomao remains in a state of quiet
Tho division quartcrrnastor to-day protested
In the namo of the War Department against the
payment In eolu of any bills for damages sus
tained by owners of property whero encamp
monts aro located; but he will certify to such
claims, based on principles of equity, leaving
it to Congress or the Court of Clalmsto author
ize tho payment. Tho cause of this procoduro
is supposed to havo arisen from the fact that
tnueh of the federal ooin heretofore disbursed
for this purpose has found its way to tho se
cession side of the Potomao. It Is understood,
however, that supplies for forage and subsist
ence aro not Included In this protest.
Yesterday, an unauthorized seout of the
thirty-fourth New York went across tbo Poto
mao, near the mouth of the Seneca, and were
attacked -by a suporior party of the enemy.
One of our men was killed outright and several
wounded. One of tho lattor was shot through
the oheok, but fled, pursued by the attacking
party. On reaching a creek, he threw in his
gun, and plunged in himself. Lying on his
back, anil resting bis head upon a stone, with
his mouth and nostrils above the water, he
evaded his pursuers; nnd, nfter three hours'
submersion, he crawled to the shore of the
river. Ills oompanlops, who were concealed
on tho Maryland sldo, discovered and resoued
him while making a vain attemp't to swim
across. These Inourslons, which can be pro
ductive of no good, to our oause, aro con
demned by experienced officers.
Tho second Rhode Island battery, stationed
near tho mouth of 'the Saneca, yesterday
shelled an enoampment of the Confederates,
nearly opposite, and It Is belioved that several
wero killed. The enemy did not respond
probably for tho want of artillery.
It Is roported that a lieutenant and several
men, belonging to one f the "river guard regi
ments, crossed tho river secretly, and are be
lieved to have doserted to the rebels. Tbe
namos of the officer and tbe regiment aro with
held until tbe report can be vorlflod; but the
authority is conceded to be reliable.
Our own and tho enemy's pickets are said to
frequently meet on one or the other shore of tbe
Potomac, and pass timo In social Intercourse,
occasionally partaking of each others hospi
tality. This mornln? at daylight, It was discovered
by General Stono's pickets, near Coonrod's
Ferry, that the onemy, during the- previous
nigbt, bad commenced, and partially construot
ed an entrenchment on the Virginia sldo, about
flvo hundred foot from the sboro upon a slope
facing tho river.
One of our light batteries opened upon them
about nine o'clock, and after twenty or thirty
rounds nothing was to be seen of the oaemy,
and but little of tbo results of their labors.
For some days past, conversations have been
held botwoen our own and the rebel pickets,
from whloh It has been discovered that tho
latter belongs to the second Richmond cavalry,
who wore anxious to exchango lato Rlohmond
papors for the leading Union journals, but our
pickets declined to reolprocate.

THE KNOAGEMENT AT 110ONEVILLE.
Jettermn Ciu. September 17 The corres
pondent of tbe St. Louis Democrat gives the
following account of an ongagemant with tbe
rebels at Boonevillo on the 13th, taken from
Cant. F.ppsteln's official report:
The captain says that after tbe fight bad
lasted about an hour, the rebels whom be had
takon as hostages became so restless that they
begged bim to allow ono of their number to go
with a flag of truce, and ask an armistice. Tbo
hostage camo baok stioa afterwards, while I
let tho men cease firing, with the request to
know my conditions.
I then demanded tbat they should withdraw
tho rebel forces two miles from the city, and
not molest any of our families, or any othor
Union pooplc, and to leavo the arms ol tbe
killed and wounded on the ground where they
fell, while I promised to let tbe prisoners Ireo
whom I had taken, with the exception of
proacbor Pamter, who, I Informed tbem, I
would shoot in case they should not bonorably
keep tboir promise for seven days. They lelt
town according to thjs agreement with me.
Thus it will bo seen tbat Captain E., wltb
only ono hundred and fifty men, actually dic
tated his own terms to fully four times bis num
ber. The onomy fought well for a little while, but
nut of tbe whole six hundred only six could bo
foundtostorra tbo works. Their leaders brave
ly led the way , but they absolutely refused to fol
low. Of these six our men killed four, including
their two leaders, Col. Brown and his son, Capt.
Brow u. These latter two fell near tbe entrench
ments, and were drawn in. Tbey died Inside
of tbem. Besides theso the enemy had eight
or ten k lied and wounded.
A courier, Just from Boonevillo, reports that
the robel lorce was retreating towards Gen.
Price's command. Besides Col. Brown and bis
sou, the rebels lost two other captains, uol.
Drown was armed with Ihroo elght-lncb revol
vers, a rifle, a sword and a bowie knife. These
weapons are now In the possession of Lieut.
