The Ivlt'tnpbis I'ulletin says the steam
er J. J. Hop, in Government service;
bringing up horses, mules, and other ar
ticles from Helena, reached there on
Thursday, in tow of the steamboat Ilork
et. At eleven o'clock the previous ni",ht,
when passing along Wolfe IJend, on the
Mississippi Fide, her tiller rope broke.
The boat was going at her usual speed.
The pilot rung tho bell immediately on
the breaking of the rope, but before the
boat couid be stopped she run on a large
snug, which entered her starboard guard,
tore up four of her state-rooms, bent the
steampipo, allowing some steam to es
cape, tore up the cabin flooring two
thirds across the saloon, and passed
through the ceiling into the texas. The
crashing of the wood and the escape ot
the steam caused the most intense alarm
among those on board, and great confu
sion was caused, in tho midst of which
Captain Yore, and Captain Jones and
Mr. Woods, the clerks, preserved tho ut
most coolness, aud at onco proceeded to
restore order and ascertain what injury
had been done. It was fund that be
tween sevcnty-Cve and a hundred horses
and mules, belonging to the government,
had been lost overboard. Mna Johnson,
who was Bleeping in one of demolish
ed staterooms, fell on the deck belm'w,
but escaped without serious injury. Mrs.
Taftand her two children were in one of
the destroyed staterooms. She and the
children also fell to the lower deck. One
of the children was killed by the fall,
the other escaped without much hurt.
Mrs. Taft herself suffered considerably
thouuh tho injury is not, fatal. Tho
Rocket came up, and as the 'state of the
injured escape-pipe did not allow oi its
being used, by her aid and tho uso of the
larboard wheel the boat reached Mem
phis. When the amount t f injury to the
cabins and saloon is seen, it isjimpossible
not to feel surprised that no more injury
to persons or loss of lile oec.irred.
Helena, Ark., Oct. I. A correspond
ent of the Missourr Ji'qwblican says we
have late and very reliable intelligence
from rebel sources in this Btale, which is
regarded by military men here as worthy
It is as late as the 181b and 22d ult..
and seriously modifies many reports we
have heard, somo of which have reached
the country. According to this informa
tion, the rebel forces in Arkansas number
and are encamped as follows :
Gen. Hinduism at Austin, 25 miles north
of Little Rock, with 5,000 men and one
battery; Gen. Rowan at White Sulphur
Springs, near I'ino Iiu!I'm '.ho Arkansu
river and 50 miles southeast of Little
Hock, with 5,000 men, 2 regiments of
which are unarmed conscripts; also a
Texan regiment and one battery, consist
ing of three (i-pounders (iron) one 12
poundcr (brass), and one siege piece
mounted. Gen. MeRan is on Arkansas
river, thirty miles northwest of Napoleon,
and Gen. Rains is at Cross Hollows with
a reported force from 4,000 to fi,000, most
ly convicts . Gen. Holmes, Commander-in-Chief
of all the forces at Little Rock,
with about 2,000 and two battalions, ono
of two!2-pounders and three 0-pounders,
another of two rifled G-pounders and 2
General McRride is at Ratesville with
about 2,000 men, only 1,500 of whom
are effective. Most of tho cavalry force
has been dismounted. At present it is
not believed they have more than 2,000
cavalry in tho State.- At Arkadclphia,
100 miles Bouthwest of Little Rock,
tho rebels manufacture munitions f
war, and have removed there all State
records and papers. Though rebel Gen
erals boast of their intentions to invado
Missouri, it is not believed by intelligent
men in their camp they intend to do so.
If they save the capital of their State it
is all they desire at present, and more
perhaps than fihey expect.

Washington, 6ct. 7. Your correspon
dent, who was with the 1'resident in his
late visits, relates the following, which
is strictly true :
After leaving Gen. Richardson, the
party passed a house in which was a large R-ostoa Herald, presided
duty of making, expounding, and execu
ting the Federal laws. Armed forces are '
raised and supported simply to sustain 1
the civil authorities, and are to be held
in strict subordination thereto in all re
This fundamental rule of onr political 1
system is essential to the security of our
republican institutions, and should be
thoroughly understood and observed by
Tho principle upon which and the ob
jects for which it shall be employed in
suppressing rebellion must be detemined
and declared by the civil authorities, and
the Chief Executive, who ii charged with
the administration of national affairs, is
the proper and only source through which
the views and orders of the Government
cun be ouitle known tu (he armies of the
nation. The discussion by olliccrs and
so'idiers concerning public means deter
mined upon and declared by tho Gov
ernment, when carried at all beyond the
ordinary, temperate, and respectful ex
pression of opinion, tend greatly to im
pair and destroy tho discipline ami
efficiency of the troops by instituting the
spirit of political faction for that Jirm,
steady, and earnest support of tho au
thority of this Government, which is tho
highest duty ot the American Boldier.
The remedy for political errors, if any
are comiaitted, is to bo found only in the
action of the people at the polls.
In thus calling tho attention of this
army to the true relation between the
soldiers ami the Government, the Gen
eral commanding merely adverts to an
evil against which it has been thought
advisable, during our whole history, to
guard the armies of the Republic, and in
so doing ho will not be discouraged by
any right-minded person, as casting any
reflection upon that loyalty and good
conduct which has been so fully and so
olten illustrated on so many battle-fields
In carrying out all measures of public
policy, this, army will of course be guided
by tho same rules of mercy and Christi
anity that have ever controlled its con
ducttoward the defenceles".

The Terrible Battle of Iuka.
The fighting at the battle of Iuka was
terrific. A letter says
The rebels, charged and took the Elev
enth Ohio Battery four difl'ercnt times,
and it was a9 often retaken by our boys.
Every horse in the battery was killed,
. I 1 1 .'A
and there were oniy eignt, men jcitun
wounded. and fit for duty. Every oflicer
was wounded, and oue Lt. killed. It
was supported by the Fifth Iowa, who
fought like tigers their first battle, too
they met the rebels every time they

ters. The desperation oi mo enemy was
astonishing. Several of them endeavored
to tear our colors from tho hands of tho
men by main strength, and either per
ished iii tho attempt or were taken pris
In one spot, next morning I counted
seventeen rebels lying dead around one
of their Colonels. Sixteen feet square
would cover the whole space where they
died with their commander. Between
two casions of the Eleventh Ohio Battery
lay sixteen dead horses, and the battery
lost ninety-three in the light. In one
place lay a rebel and a Union soldier, tho
Unionist shot through the breast, and in
tallinir he had nluneed his bayonet into
the breast of the man w ho shot him, and
they fell together, the rebel clutching our
boy by the throat. They lay in this
position on tho field next morning, and it
was with difficulty they were separated.
Wounded and dead lay in all directions
during the whole of tho day succeeding
the battle, it being impossible to remove
them sooner. Trice left his dead and
wounded on the field, paying no atten
tion whatever to them.

New Albany Ledger with a number of
well developed bolls of cotton raised by
his mother, Mrs. Lightner, an active,
hard-winking old lady of ninety-three,
at Mr. Maun s place, on the (. Iiarlestown
road. There were twenty-cijiht bolls on
a single stock, two of the btst of which
were accidentally destroyed. The Ledger

number of Confederate wounded. By
request of the President, .the party
alighted and entered the building. Mr.
Lincoln, after looking, remarked to the
wounded Confederates that if they had
no objection he womd be pleased to take
them by the hand. He said the solemn
obligations which we owe to our country
and posterity compel the prosecution of
this war, and it followed that many wero
our enemies through uncontrollable cir
cumstances, autl he bore them no malice,
and could take them by the hand with
sympathy and good feeling. After a
short silence, tho Confederates came for
ward, and each silently but fervently
shook the hand of tho President. Mr.
Lincoln and General McClellan then
walked forward by the side of thoso who
were wounded too severely to be ablo to
arise, and bid them be of good cheer ; as
suring them that every possible care
should be bestowed upon them to amelio
rate their condition. It was a moving
scene, and ther was not a dry eye in the
building, either among tho Isatunals or
Confederates. Both tho President and
General McClellan were kind in their re
marks and treatment of tho rebel suffer
ers during this remarkable interview.
Washington-, Oct. 7.
A deserter from tho 2d Virginia caval
ry, who came withinSigol's lines to-day,
says tho brigade commanded by Gener
al Mumford, to which his regiment was
attached, is stationed between Warrenton
and the springs. There arc three divis
ions at Culpepper 0. II., commanded by
Gen. G. W. Smith, two of which are new
troops. There is a large torce at Gor
donsville. This deserter was with the
rebels in Maryland, where he heard ollr-
eers say their loss was 20,00010,000
killed and wounded, the residue in pris
oners and deserters.
He says Lee's army ia growing every
day, tho old regiments being tilled by
1 rom an otlicial list tor warded to too
War Department by Gen. Sigel it ap
pears that tho number of rebel prisoners
taken by our cavalry at Yvarrcuton was
1,132, and they were paroled. JNot ono
