A soldier in the it'th .New lork was
saved from death by his wife's picture in

At 11 A. M., the Mound City having
fired 15 guns an unusual qunnlityof
steam is seen issuing from her porta anil
through the ventilators on the upper deck.
At first w c suppose her boilers have ex
ploded, but by a mark on her port side
forward, perceive that sin had received a
hot from the enemy.
l rom a conversation with the First
Master, C. Dominy, of the unfortunate
guuboat, we learn, that, after shelling tha
woods, tho Wound City proceeded on np
the river, engnginj the lower rebel bat
tery, which was soon effectually silencciL
1 lie Mound City had then engaged the
second battery some 2(X) yards distant
and also shelled tho woods tilled with
the enemy's sharpshooters. At 1 A. M,
an elongated rilled 42-pound shot entered
her port side, forward of the forward
port, at an angel of thirty degrees, in
stantly killing four men at their gans,
and then passing through the steam drum
and beater, iinally lodged in the pantry
of the steerage room.

presented the most horrible spectacle wo
ever witnessed. In an instant thewholo

are sure, were drowned or murdered tho

as ho pulled his men out of the water at

sharpshooters snot them down
Quartermaster Mckean and one of the
coal heavers wero both shot while Dom

through tho hip, and the coal heaver
through the head. The latter, with his

the Mound City, and, passing a line to
her stern, pulled tho disabled (run boat
out from the shore where she had drift
ed, to a secure point one mile below. In
the meantime, a party of the enemy's
sharpshooters endeavored to board the
Mound City, but were soon shelled oil'
by a discharge from tho tug Spitfire,
Dahlgren howitzer, and round or two
from the Conestoga s big guns. One of
the Lexington s and two of tho Cones
toga's small boats, while picking the
men out of the water, wero riddled with
bulllets and a shot from the enemy's -12-
pounder. A 42-poundcr passed through
both of the Coneatoga'a boats, when on
of tho latter was run ashore to savo the

with the hope of alfording all possible
relief, in tho capacity of nurse. Here
lay the bodies of some twenty men,
scalded to death, others with their man
gled bodies severed asunder by tho fatal
shot. The gun-deck was literally strewn
with from 5 to BO others, who, being
badly scalded and horribly disligured,
were tearing olf their clothing, and long
strings of tilceding llesh dangling from
their linger ends, bands, arms, and lacer

numerous pitiful exclamations and pa

features of all were wonderfully distorted
Many could not be recognized by their
most intimate friends. We pray to God
wo shall never hare occasion to look on
such a scene again. The pilots, engineers
and all other ofllcers of the boats stood
their watches to the last moment, while

Anecdote of General llutler
We are indebted to tho Ohio Slate Jour

It must be recollected that den. Duller
is a lawyer of high rank. He has always

"cross-questioner," perhaps the most so
of any prominent lawyer in New Eng
land, borne years since, an opposing
party, in Court, introduced as a witness
I'rof. Horsford, of Harvard University.
When the witness was turned over to
llntior, he commenced excoriating him in
his . characteristic manner, when the
Judge, who was a very sensitive gentle
man, mildly interrupted Mr. tsuller by
saying, " perhaps brother tiutler is un
acquainted with the character of tho wit
ness upon the aland! l'rofessor Horsford,
of Harvard University," said the Judge,
bow ing to liutlcr, and requesting hna to
proceed. "Ahl " says Isuller, in his most
blandly serio-comic manner, at tho same

The Hon. David Wiluiot, Senator in

will take cogmxauce of the facts here re
cited, when they meet his eye. Tho
following is the extract:
"Dear Sib: Tho Union men of this
vicinity are becoming much disheartened
by the indulgence shown to tho Rebels by
our Military Governor. Parties of them
procure passes to travel to liultiinore and
Richmond, by giving their parole, (re

not regard in the least, and by so doing
a daily communication is kept tip with
the Rebel leaders in Richmond. All tho
movements of the l edcral army are at
once transmitted to them by these paroled
persons. Why the most tabooed of the
Secessionists should receive these favors
astonishes the I'uion men. In some
cases, persons taken with letters in their

have been released to Ueu. Viele. The

urday ia;t. He commenced on Wednes
day near tho Seven Finos, which he call
ed "not a battle, merely an affair of
Heintzelman's corpssupported by Keyes,'
and was a following up of bis original
plan for an advance upon the city, secur
ing a position much nearer the insurgents
works than had been previously attain
ed, with but one intervening belt of for
est' between our forces and tho city.
From tho time of tho attack on Casey's
works in the early part of June, MeClel
lan has been arduously employed in
strengthening bis lines on a strong base
for future advancing operations, lhere
was a narrow open spare, between our
central works on the further side of the
Chickahominy aud the rebel fortifica
tions, tho command of which w as con
stantly disputed, and this led to frequent
annoying attacks, which will now be
avoided. Alien again tho base line of our
army was on the Painuuky and York
rivers, receiving supplies from West
Point, and the commissary depot was ut
White House, over twenty miles from its
main centre, a line too extended to be
safely defended. Here, then, wero the
dillicullics of passing the right wing over
the Chickahominy and the immense
transportation of supplies to bo overcome
and avoided. This could not be done by
retaining possession of tho ground be
tween tho Chickahominy and Pamunky
rivers, and thcreforo MeClellan retired
his whole forco in the most perfect order,
admirably supported by artillery, nnd
did not leavo an invalid or ten dollars'
worth of stores at Wiiito House. All had
been sent tlown tho York river to go
around by For tress Monroo and up the
James river, thus changing his whole
baso line of operations, gaining command
of the high country between the Chicka
hominy swamp aud James river, rcn
derinir valueless tho works constructed
by the rebels on our old right wing and
centre, concentrating bis force into about
ono third its former front, avoiding the
necessity of camping his divisions in
wainpy irround, aud posting bis left
wing on James river, where it is impos
sible to have his communication inter

it commenced snowing in this city, feeb
