The United State? mail steamer Webster,
Capt, Cha?. Deerlng, arrived here this morn
rag at 6* o'clock, from City Point, with the
army maile and a number of rebel deserters.
fc>he ?reporta that on Thursday night two regi,

tmg to tbe corral, which is along the river, and
drove off* a large number of cattle, overpower

WEM alarm, however, was speedily given?
Bad all the troop? at City Point were immedi?
ately placed nnder arm?, and a body of our

hardly succeed In getting ont of onr line? with
At ten o'clock, yesterday morning, the hour
at which the mail steamer left City Point, the
pursuing force bad not returned? but a scout
had brought information to ?tien. Grant's bead
qBarters that our cavalry had come np with a
body of rebel? that had been sent ont to pro

When the Web*ter reached Fortress Menroe

captured a large number of prisoners.

Reports are conflicting a? to the number of
eatue driven off by the rebels.
Some sav that tbey got 3^500, while others
?tate that the number was not over 1,000. The
latter flgnre is probably correct, aa 3,500 head
of cattle I? a large number to be driven off by
tea regiment? from an enemy's country.
There is no news of importance from the Im

feeling confident that tbe quietude will be soon
Broken by the rebel? who are receiving rein

HBAfX-TAKTBRS ABMV OP THB POTOMAC,
Sept. is?Fvening.?During the past few days?
both sides, have been engaged in a continued
?tmggle of Sharps hooting and artillery firing,
particularly In the centre of the linee.
It was thought several nights ago that thi?
annoy ing practice would cease in front of the
?Second Corps, a? an agreement had been made
by both sides to that effect, bnt it is reported
that the same night a? our men were changing
the pickets the rebels opened and killed and
wrnnded abont a dozen of oar men. Onr
Bcldier? threatened tbey would bave revenge
for mia dastardly act, so, watching a favorable
opportunity, when the rebels had alarge num.
Isjr exposed, blazed away with terrible effect
Those unhurt were not long in seeking tbe
cover of their works, and finally begged onr
men to ceaee, a? the firing the night previous
was by a new regiment, who were not aware
of the agreement. But the answer sent over
(which was rather more expressive than ele
gant) seemed to satisfy them the truce was at
an end: and ?ver since each has been watching
a chance to hit his adversary.
Over twenty ambulances were this morning
see? to come toward the place where this
struggle occnrred and go back loaded, eviden
ciBg that the rebels paid dearly for their bad

The Democratic Dieaeneieu.
The New York Daily New? ie yet very bitter
?pon Gen. McClellan. Yesterday, in an ar
ticle entitled ??The Divided Democracy," lt
said that ?? the military enforcement of States
into a political alliance tbey discard Is clearly
<aa not of subjugation," being, in fact, the old
rebel cry of "no coercion." It says that the
plstform of the Chicago Convention Is all
right, bnt ?that the healing work has been un?
done. "Gen. McClellan has blown the party
to pieces a? by a bombshell. The schismatics
have gone on again after false gods. Tramp
ling on the Constitution, repudiating the sov
ereignty of the State?, and spitting upon the
fundamental condition of onr system of Gov
ernment, their voice is still for war."
1? a violent perturbation the New? exclaims
that the peace men are not to be cajoled out of
their ??jprinciples.'' In reply to the assertion
of the New York Express that "the peace par
ty will all, or about all, vote for McClellan,"
the News eaye :??? We hive already had op
portunities to it??ge of what the feeling is, es
pecially ?n the'West, and we positively assure
onr ^temporary that the bulk of the peace
???arty will not vote for McClellan if he retains
hi? present position of antagonism with tbe
Chicago platform. Neither will they vote for
Mr. Lincoln; they will remain at home upon
election day, a? men deprived of their elective
franchise by the cunning of a faction.''

earnestness was displayed la the early part of

The streets were wet and the weather threat

THE DRAFT NOT TO BB POITI'ONBD IN
This morning Mayor Wallach, accompanied
by d?l?gations from the various Wards, waited
upon Provost marshal General Fry, to a.-lr. a
postponement of tbe draft ia this District, for a
short period, in order to give the District an
opportunity to fill the quota, as active ezer
tiyns were being made In the various Wards.
Col. Pry gave the delegation a courteous
bearing, but expressed the opiflion that no
postponement could be granted. The reasons
urged for a postponement did not seem to him
The delegation afterwards waited upon the
Secretary ot War. who also received them
courteously, but replied very promptly that
tbe draft could not be postpone?!. '?Not a mi
nute, not a second," said the Secretary.
If the hopes of the community are somewhat
dashed by this decision, we can content our
selves with the knowledge that delegations
from various parts of the country are meeting
with the same decided refusal to that given to
the city's delegation to-day.

Sbvbbth Ward Exbmptiox Fcnd_L?jpe.
cial attention is called to tbe announcement of
the meeting in the Seventh Ward to-night to
take measures to fill the quota of that ward.
A little active exertion on the part of the cit
izens of the ward will save that ward from
the draft, and a contribution of aiz or seven
dollars from each man enrolled will do the
Secobd Ward Exemption Association.?
An adjourned meeting of citizens of the Second
Ward was held last night at German Hall, 11th
street, to take measures to fill the ward qnota.
Mr. J. Russell Barr, President of the associa
tion, culled tbe meeting to order, and Mr. J. W.
Spalding, secretary, made a report ia behalf of
the ward canvassers. They had collected from
Sf-00 to Si.ooii, in their three days operations,
and found the need of having more collectors.
He moved that collectors l?e appointed as fol
lows for the ward : Two south of Pennsylvania
aveune; two between the avenue and F street:
two between F and H streets; two between H
aud K: two between K. and M; and two north
of M; said collectors to act In conjunction with
tho.-e already appointed.
The motion was agreed to: and the following
Wire appointed: William Pettibone and George
Haeur, for the first-mentioned district; George
E. Jillard and A. Schilling, for the second; A.
Tonnet and John McClellan, for the third; F.
Miller and S. F. Stewa-t, for the the fourth;
Wm. Thomas aud G. T. T.angley, for the fifth;
and John McO. Carusi aud Charles F. Smith,
for the bixth.
On motion of Mr .1 T. McGuire, collectors
were appointed for the Departments as fol
lows. C. P. Gunnion, for Patent Office; J. F
McGuire, post OfflcejF. A. Howard, Treasury
Department; George ? Raub, War and Navy
Departments ana Winder's Bailding; Thomas
Thompson, lor Quartermaster's Department:
and James Sinclair, for Paymaster's Depart
Mr. Spaulding moved that a committee of
three be appointed to act in conjunction with
the Mayor, in waiting npon Provost Marshal
General Fry, to ask an extension of the draft
fur one week at least He said they had learned
from the autborities that the quota ot the ward
would not exceed 103 at the outside, and he
believed from the enthusiasm now felt in the
ward in the matter, that their quota could be
tilled in one week. Had they the money, the
men were forthcoming at any moment.
The committee that bad waited upon the
Provost Marshal were informed that the draft
would commet?. ?? first with tbe wards where
tbe deficiency was greatest. It was probable,
Mr. Spalding said, that the drafting would
commence first with tbe county, Georgetown,
and the First and Fourth Wards, and that the
Third Ward would be one of the last wards
drawn, and that tbe draft would not come
there before Thursday or Friday. Whether
the draft was postponed or not, this would
give them time to work.
Tbe motion of Mr. Spalding whs adopted,
and Messrs. Jame? W. Spalding, W. N. Haw
ley and S. W. Owen were appointed on tbe
Mr Spa ding moved that l.ooo more copies of
a card addressed to the people of the Ward,
prepared by tbe committee, be printed for cir
culation, and wished to get the sense of the
meeting upon the proposition made ia this ad
ri re?-.-, that ??should the association fail to fill
the quota, the money will be equally divided
amongst those drafted who have contributed to
wards the fand."
The meeting voted affirmatively ou the pro
Tbe meeting adjourned with the understand
ing that the Ward should be throroughly can
vassed, it possible, to-day.

Ai.EXASi.RiA AwrAiUR?Execution of a De.
serter.?Private Samuel W. Downing, alias
John W Ball, Company H, 4th Maryland in
fantry, wa? executed to-day for desertion and
bounty jumping. It appears, from Do wnlng's
own confession, made before Col. Wells, Pro
vost Marshal General, that be enlisted in the
4th Maryland in Augost, 1861, and since then
haa deserted and re-enliated, or loined the
army aa a substitute, seventeen times. The
amount of bounty and substitute money he has
received foot? up a grand total of ?17,550.
Dowing waa arrested while at the Provost
Marshal'? office in Baltimore, where he had
gone to re-enliat for tbe eighteenth time.
From Baltimore he was sent to Camp Distri
bution, near this city; wa? from there soon
transferred to the Green prison on Fairfax
street, where he remained until after hi? trial.
He was then for a lew days confined In Odd
Fellows' Hall, and during the laet days of bis
imprisonment wa? confined for better security
in the county jail.
The execution took place on the common
northwest of the city, sear Sickle Barracks.
The prisoner was marched into the sqnare at
fifteen minutes past eleven, accompanied by
the brigade band playing a solemn dirge, the
Provost Marshal, Capt. Gwynne, ministers
A' tbe conclusion of the reading of the sen
tunce by the Provost Marshal, the prisoner
spoke as follows, in a loud, clear voice:
??Well, soldiers. I suppose I've got to be ex*-,
ecuted, and I reckon it's all right. All I've
got to say is, do your duty to yonr country
faithfully. I was once color sergeant of the
-Pennsylvania, and an honorable man, but
1 have disgraced myself and now have to die
for it. You had better work for one dollar a
day all your lives than act as I have. I am
worth twenty thousand dollars, but I am to be
executed, and it won't do me any good. Take
my advice then, and let prostitutes alone?
bounties won't do you any more good in the
long run than they have me. Serve yonr coun
try faithfully and take a little whisky now and
then?it won't hurt you ! I haven't got time to
sav anything more. Good bye."
If there was any sympathy felt for the pris
oner before thi? speech was made it was all
gone by the time of ite close. After an exhor
tation and prayer by the ministers in atten
dance, he was seated on the end of his effionn,
with his face to the east, and blind-folded.
Not a muscle was seen to move, but to tbe last
be braved death as one who had fully made
up his mind to die. Exactly at 1*2 o'clock m.,
Capt Gwynne gave the order to fire, and the
prisoner was launched into that eternity for
which he seemed to have so little dread.
Mosby Retwrted Wounded.?A skirmish took
place in tbe neighborhood of Centre vii le day
before yesterday, between five TJnien aoldiers
and three guerrilla?. Mosby wa? in company
with the guerrillas, and it is said by citizens
from tbat vicinity that he waa wonnded in the
skirmish. The report comea so direct that we
can hardly donbt it, yet we fear it may not be
true We lost two horses and had one man se
verely wounded in the engagement ?Alexan
