GENES AL CANBY'S ARMY.
OPERATION l" I.OI ISIAA.
Vryr York, July 18. A private letter front
Morganida, Juno SUtb, states that Gen. Canby is
Tory actively engaged in perfecting the arrange'
mentafoi tbe military operations in tho vicinity
of Merganzia and tho Hed River.
General Ullman, with a largo portion of his
forces, had reached Morgaur.ia, where, he had
been placed in command of all the colored troop.
The fortifications ut Morgauzia aro most for
midable, and command a range of some .six miles
of the Mississippi river, which at this point makes
a bend fur some distance.
The position is deemed of the utmost import
aucr, being eqiii-distant from J'ort Hudson and
the ficd river, thus forming a btio considered by
all military men as the key to tho lied river
country. The Kebels have a largo force stationed
on the west bank of tho Atchatmaya, niuo miles
iu the rear of Moritan.la.
The corps being organized near Jforpuuiii is
to be under the command of Mr.jor-Guueial
Kcynolds, and it is expected that the movement
for the Uinlodgiuetit of tho llehcl army on the
Ateliafaluva will oon commence.
General McNeill is at Fort Hudson, in com
mand of the garrison left by General I llma-i.
Tlio guerillas arc somewhat active between
Tort Hudson and Yicksburg, but not in such
force as ihcy were a month ago.
Our gunboats during the high water easily
prevent tho crosing of tlio Achataluya by the
Rebels; but during tho low stage of the river
those crossing will be prevented by the land
forces of General l lliuan encamped on the east
A largo Union force is being collected near
Moigaii.ia, amply sutlicient for ollensivo or de
fensive purposes. No oll'otisive movements h id
been made up to the :aHIi ulr. by tho Rebels, but
the activity infused into tho Department by
Major-Genera! (.'ttnby indicates active opvra'ious
not far distant.

The cliicring new s yesterday from Maryland
w as i nougb to produce rumors, and out of a mul
titude we ive i nly two of them. First.it was
stilted that the New York ni'.of the. 11th had
been nreivid by a soldier connected w'th the
Army of Northern Virginia, which stated thai
timeiul larly (.iot I-we'll was advam ing In tan
coliiinns upon lialtimore, and was wiihai seven
tniles of the city.
The second was. that a letter had been received
from an etticcr of the invadlm? command, ad
dressed to a lady of this elf, which said that the
outer forlitiictions of liuUbiinrc were within
sight at the lime lie wrote the uiornimr of the
loth. Wo give the rumors for what they uro
I n iu Northern accounts, as given In another
column, there is nodoubtbtit that wecinn iw
take 1! iltimore, if wo think it advisable. 1 ho
only question is, ns to tho expediency. Of th.s
our ( ciiuuiiiuding G' neral, bo he Junes, Smith,
"or any uther man," w ill judge.
We saw a gentleman yesterday mornlnir direct
from Mathews county, who states that there have
bei n r.o Yankee utitli rs in tliat reg.ou for somo
time, und Unit that the people are now enjoying
a temporary state ot t;uittudo. With the excep
tion of burnt mills, empty smoke-houses and
corn-cribs, pillaged barns, and hog-pens minuM
l)Oi)t, the face of the Country Is wearing its usual
appearance. He reports that for tiltecn days
past Yankee transports in great numbers and of
unusual size have been going up the Chesa
He could not say whether they were loaded
with troops, but the presumption is very strong
that they were taking reinforcements to the
frightened Yankee army now defending Mary
lard and Pennsylvania. Along the road between
Mintews and this city, he describes the condition
of tilings in many places as perfectly lameutuble,
and thinks if a resident who had been absent for
a time wero blindfolded and taken home be
would not recognize it. This is especial ly tlio

with the sentry . (1 the men tints standing all
were immediately kiilcd.savc ono or two.
As soon as possible the survivors set to work
under the guidance of the Captain in charge of
the body, to extricate the dying and wounded
from their fearful position, and, fu the mean
time, word was sent to Sholiolu, apprising tho
authorities th, re of the state of thlnim, who Im
mediately telegraphed for assistance to Port
Jrrvis, whence, in a short time, Hugh Rid lie,
Ksq., District Superintendent, arrived on (ho
scene of disaster in a relief train, with three sur
geons to attend to the Injured.
The scene i described by those who escaped
ns most appalling, tho road blocked up with
debris, cor piled upon cur in tho most induscriha
blc contusion, the bodies of those thrown from
thrm covering tlic road at every Btep, tho living
dust and blinding smoke from tho quenching
lues, the noise of I lie escaping steam, and, above
all, the ft nrttil groans and hcirl-rending cries of
tl e b jured and expiring will never be forgotten.
Some of tlic corpses were shockingly mutilated,
hciii'S completely ciushul, bodies transfixed,
iin aled on limbers or Iron roils, or smashed be
tweinthc colliding beams, while ono man was
ilisimcrcd dead, sitting on the top of the up
turned tender, in grotesque and ghastly mockery
of tl 0 set ne around him.
Wl en the cries of the last wounded had directed
th" sea chcrs to his place of imprisonment, and
the Inst corpse removed from its toiup irary
tomb, it wns found that (he victims numbered
sixteen I'nion men nml forty-four Robots, dead ;
while the wounded numbered one hundred and
twi niy.-omeotthcm wounded mortally indeed,
four has s.Dce died, nml a number of others can
not be expected to recover. J. T. Ridgway, I'.sq.,
Associate Judge of l'ike county, was soon on tlio

and the officer in commitud of the men, r jury
wus impnnncletl and nn inquest held ; alter which a
large trench was dug by tlic soldiers and thu
railway employees, 7ti feet long, h leet wide, and
6 feet deep, in whieli the bodies were at once in

allotcd to four Rebels und one to curb Union

as possible to Shohola. where thoy met with
every attention and aid that surglcil skill could

Rf.ti un or a Piiit.M:i.riiiAN. On the six
T. M. train from Now Y'ork to this city yesterday
we had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Reorgo Alfred
Towii'etid, for a nuinbor of years an u7i of
the press of this city, and who has just returned
from an extended tour abroad.
Mr. Tovvnsend commenced tho life of a daily
journalist as a reporter on the morning fii.iirer
in IM'0. The next year ho becaiitio local and
drama'le editor of the Ves.t, acting nt tho same
time its the Philadelphia correspondent of the
New York World, and writing sketches for tho
Humlnt 'J'innii riiit. His war poems, of w hlch he
produ'ed n number, wero widely circulated and
preserved in Prank Moore's flrtvUion f.vno.
He llnully became tho llerald'i correipondent
with the Army of Virginia, witnessed tlio whole
Peninsular campaign, and, though being danger
ously III w ith tlic typhus fever before Richmond,
lived to tlcsrrilie the ix days' retreat, and repair
to the lield ariilu W'tli General l'ope.
At the battle of Cedar Mountain he lost two
horses, narrowly escaped Stuart's raiders
at Mniiassns, but curried tho story or tho battle
to the North, though so debilitated by sickness
und exposure as to be unable to follow thu men
Two years ago Mr. T. resolved to go to
F.nglund with his fresh experiences, and en
lighten John Hull. For awhile he made radi
cal pro-Northern lectures in Linc.ishire, but re
ceived more kicks than half pence fur his pains,
resorted fo Lmdon, und there tried the lit iga
r.incs. Here his success was moderate, and lor
nine months was a constant contributor to tho
Cornliitl Mmjaziiie nnd to f 7tiVr Jounml, etc.
corresponding all the whilo w iih America.
In June, IWti.t, Mr. Townsend went to tho con
tinent, visited Holland, Helgium, Germany,
Switzerland, and Italy, residing much of the time
in Fiance. He bud just returned when wo mot
him, nnd is now editing the Sunday Mercury,
New York city, and nt the sumo time preparing
a volume of tils literary experience, to bo c.illed
tlte "Skceluddler in Etiroiie."
