a universal ovation in the army since, his
arrival, every soldier being fired with a
hew martial enthusiasm. May the eatuo
fortune which has hithertu smiled upon
liiin in .11 his battles continue to follow
Jbim, in thi great 6truggle for human
l ights, and free government.
General William Starke Ttosccrans has
. . i e . i ,
been appointed to tho command of tho
Department of the Cumberland, including
the State of iennessee .ast of the J. en
nessee river, and sucn parts ol ueorgia
aud Alabama as the Union armies may
occupy. lie was born in Kingston u.wn
ship, Delaware county, Uhio, on the Oth
of December, 1819. ; Ilia parents' were
Crandall Kosccrans, whose ancestors were
originally from Amsterdam,' Holland, and
Jemima Hopkins ; the former, a native of
uyoming Talley. rcnnsylvama, emigrat
ed to Ohio in 1803. The early years of
the present General wcro passed in close
application to his studies, so that at the
ago of eighteen he was well luted lor bis
appointment as cadet at the military
academy at West Point, ia 18.T8. lie
graduated with .high honors in 1812, be
ing third in mathematics ana 11 tin in gen
eral merit, in a class of fifty-six, nnm
bering many distinguished competitors.
lie entered the corps ot .' engineers as
brevet second lieutenant, on tho 1st of
July, 1812, and served that year at For
tress Monroe, as ursi assistant, unaer
command of Lieutenant Colonel 11 E.
DeDussey. lie was ordered to duty at
West Point, in laU, as assistant proles
aor of encmf erinir.
About this period' General Lesecrans
was united in marriage, at .m. jonn s
. f . A 11 a T 1 .
Church, in New York city, 16 Miss A. U
liegeman, only daughter of Adrian llege-
an, oi mat cuy. jii ion, ne was ue-
dctailed as assistant professor of natural
-.a ..i.:i.,...,t. T Ul-
au4 cxoerimental philosophy. Inl8ij-
7 he served as assistant and first assist
ant nrofiisor of encineennjr, and had
charge of the, department to which Cap
tain ftwift had been attached, while that
officer served in Moxico, and was also for
pinn month post quartermaster. Ue was
ordered to Newport in 18 17.
. In 1852-53, ho was charged with the
survey of New Bedford and Providence
harbors, and Taunton river, under an act
of Congress appropriating a stated sum
for th purposo of improvement. In Ap
ril, 1851, he was ordered to report for
duty to the Secretary of the Navy in the
bureau of docks and yards ; then assign
ed as constructing engineer at Washing
ton . iiavy yard, until November, 1853,
when, on account of ill health he felt
compelled to resign his position, and
tendered his resignation to tho Secretary
of War, Jcllerson Davis. :The res'gna
tion was not accepted from a desire to
retain so valuable an olllccr in the ser
vice, and a leave of absence was granted,
with the understanding thai, at its ter
minus, if the resignation was insisted
upon, it would be accepted, which was
subsequently done in April 1851.
Prom that date to June, 1855, General
Ivoserrans occupied an ollice in Cincin
nati, as consulting engineer and archi
tect. When Gen. McCIellaii was ap
pointed, he at once selected Gen. Ilose
crans as his aid and acting chief engi
neer, with the rank of Major. The Leg
islature of Ohio then purposely created
the ollice of chief engineer of the State,
which was intended for Gen.NL'osecrans
and accepted by him. On tho 10th of
Jnne, 1801, he was appointed by Gov.
Dennison, Colonel of the 23d Regiment
Ohio Volunteer, and was sent upon a
mission to Washington City, to arrange
for the maintenance and payment of tlie
Ohio contingent forces. On the 2Uth of
J una he was nominated, by the President,
a Brigadier General in the regular army,
and assigned to duty under Gen. Mo
Clellan, then in Virginia. He served un
der McClellan with distinguished gallan
try, and when Grn. McClellan was called
U Washington to take charge of tho
army of the Potomac, Kosecrans was
appointed to the command of the
army ia Western Virginia, and,
whilst in that position, made ono
most successful and truly
brilliant campaigns of the war, and
added new luatrei i.n llm Amci-ii aii arm.
When the campaign closed he went to
Wheeling, Va., and established hi head
quarters there, but the lilV'was so mono
tonous, and ho was so anxious lor active
seruice, that llm President us-urieil him
to a command under (Jen. Grant. While
in this pisi(in be fotvht and won two
of the most important battle of this
wnrIuLa and Corinth. , Althongh out
numljcred by tho rebels at the laller
plafe, ho handled his men with so much
skill, and 'their unflinching bravery,
stimulated by ' hid conduct, tho nrmy
were repulsed and completely scattered,
being chased for many miles. V. e be
lieve Gen. l.'oeecrans ban never been de
feated in nhy battle' he fought. He is a
good general, taking advantage of any
opportunity and making the best out of
it. e hopo in hi new held of labors

' Bolivah Heiohth, Oct. 27,
' As the preliminary account lias been
permitted from headquarters, there can
be no impropriety in stating that agei:-
eral movement has at last commenced.
'A portion of General Burnside's troops
left Pleasant Valley yesterday morning
and moved down to Berlin, five miles be
low Harper's Ferry, where a pontoon
bridge has been thrown across the Po
tomac. The remainder, embracing the
three corps under Burnside's command,
will speedily follow. Simultaneously
with this, the troops atSharpsburg, com
posed of Hooker's old corps, now com
manded by Reynold, and the coj-ps of
Fitz John Porter, are also on the march
They probably encamped last night near
the head of pleasant Valley, ready to
follow Burnside's troops.
The elements are unpropitious. Until
yesterday morning, the roads were dry
and in splendid condition for marching.
But soon after daylight a cold, driving
rain commenced, and has continued with
out interruption up to this morning. The
roads are already very muddy, and after
being kneaded by a few thousand infan
try will be almost impassable. The
itortn is exceedingly severe on the men.

' Two new Monitors building near Ph il
adelphia are far advanced toward com
pletion. One of them, the Sangamon, was
to have been launched yesterday.; The
other will be launched in a few weeks,
These vessels are nearly similar to the
old Monitor,'tut they are more substan
tially built, and apparently impregnable.
The armor is ot such a character, and the
machinery so well protected, that all at
tempts to sink or blow them up with ball
or Bhell would appear to be impossible.
These vessels are 200 feet long, 47 feet
wide, and 11 feet G inches deep.

to accomplish so much of the destruction
of tno railroad as could be cono in a

large numbers, they drove them across
the Pocataligo river. Our loss, however

In the very' hard-fought engagement
which took place a week ago to-day, drove
them from both of their chosen positions,

succeed in carrying out the magnificient
programme which e had conceived, he
did make a complete reconnoissance of
the region between the Island of Port
Koyal and Charleston ltailroad, and ad
ministered to the rebels a thorough chas

ThejWat to Make an Omelet. The
Scientific American says it is surprising"
that a dish so easily prepared and so de
licious as omelet has come into use to so
small an extent in '. this country ; there
are extensive districts where it has never
been heard of, and many 'hotmkeeperi
who meet with it in their travels never
have it upon their own tables, because
their cooks do not know bow to prepare
it Omelet i simply egg beaten aud tried
in butter. Break three fresh eggs into a
bowl, add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon
full of water, and beat the eggs thoroughly.
Then put a tableipoonful of good buttnr

angle. As soon as the pan is warm, pour
in the eggs, and as tho mass begins to
cook run a case kufo under it to keep it
from burning to the pan. As soon a th
