The quiet in front of Petersburg is broken
only by the usual picket firing and occa

New York, 29th.,
It is stated that Jeff. Davis h~ gone to
Georgia to head offStephens and Brown in
their cfforts to restore that State to the
Union. The situation in that direction, so
far as the rebel cause is concerned, is con
sidered critical in the extreme. Nothing
less than Jeff's presence can reconcile the
citizens of the state to a longer endurence
of the rebel yoke. Hood's army is also re
ported to be in such a state of demoraliza
tion that the presence of their President is
considered necessary to bring them up to
the firhtin Dpoint.

the Confederaters, and did the same at
Waynesboro. From 25 to 40 prisoners

ST. Loris, Sept. 29.
A raid on Potosi was made by a scouting ji
party who robbed all the stores and con
scripted several citizens.
The particulars of the affair at Centralia
are receited. Thirty-four soldiers, most
of them discharged veterans returning home I
from Atlanta, were shot in cold blood, and I
their bodies terribly mutilated. Mr. Roland I
express agent at Centralia was also mur
dered, and three citizens on the train were
wounded and left to burn up with the train, i
which was fired and started off at full Rp.,.d.
About an hour after the guerillas left, Ma
jor Johnson, with about 150 militia, arrived
at Centralia and started in pursuit. They
were ambushed three miles out of town,
and 96 of them, including Major Johnson, I
were killed. The militia were all raw and 1
badly armed. The guerillas were under
command of the notorious Bill Anderson.
The following dispatches to head-quar
ters to-night, are from Ewing's Adjutant:
At daylight our outposts at Ironton were
attacked add forced back within half a mile 1
of the Fort. The enemy mnide a desperate I
effort to get possession of Shepard's moan
tain, and at 2 o'clock p. m., succeeded in
driving a battalion of the 14th Iowa into
the ritie-pits, and getting two 6-pounders in
position on the mountain. The three moun
tain slopes overlookiug the Fort were filled
with dismounted cavalry, extending aeross
the valley between the Fort and lronton,
and commanded by Marmaduke, while a
column passed around the base of Shep
ard's mountain and formed at the south of
Gen. Cabell's command of dismounted
cavalry on the slop. ot Pilot Knob. The
rebel troops thus disposed, a signal of two I
guns was fired from the mountain and the
assault in force moved on our works. They
came up in fine style to the ditches, but
went back to the mountain in haste, leaving
1,500 killed and wounded. Among the lat
ter is Gen. Cabell, one Lieut-Coionel, two
Captains, and two Lieutenants. Our entire
loss is nine killed and sixty wounded. Yes
ter4ay at 4 o'clock a. m., we left the Fort
and blew up the magasine. Price was com
manding in person.
Since the reception of the above dis
patch, we learn that:Ewing, after blowing
up the magasine, evacuated Pilot Knob and
brought away his entire command. He will
reach IHarriaon' station on the South west
Branch railroad to-night. There is much
rejoicing in the city at the escape of Ewing
and hit gallant army.
General Smith has evacuated De Sot

The rebels infest the entire country south
of Do Soco, ulandering everybody theyt
meet. They have a list of all the woamdej
men where they pass through, whom it is
said they kill. They conscript all rebel
sympathizers, even boys bf Ofteen. The

and large numbers are emigrating to Illi

Capt. Hall, just arrived, gives a detailed
account ot the defence of Pilot Knob: but
it does not differ materially from the re

At one time the rebels were so near the
fort that they got on the draw-bridge, which
was down, the ropes having broken, but they
were driven back with great slaughter and3
forced to retreat. Our men fired about 300
rounds each. The garrison was not pursu

A train of sixty-four wagons had been
destroyed by the rebels between Irondale
