Centreville, the famous stronghold of the

tents, forage, provisions, and in fact de

Most of the cannon have been taken away.
Those remaining are of inferior quality

my right. The fight continued mainly at
these points during the day, the enemy
having gained a point hotly contested by
Col. Carr at Cross Timber Hollow, but. was

commander, Gen. McCulloch, by our forces
under General Davis.

Fortress Monhoe, March 9.
The Confcdeiate steamer Merrimac made
her appearance yesterday, Villi the assist
ance of two gunboats from Norfolk, and
made an attack on Newport .News and the
naval vessels stationed at that place. The
Merrimac was first seen from the ramparts
of Fortress Monroe at one o'clock. Her
sides, bows and stern, was covered with
sloping iron plates-cxtendng two feet above
the water line, and meeting together like
the roof of a house. On her bows, at the
water line, are two sharp iron points re
sembling plows. On her bows were seen
two guns projecting from long eliptical
pert-holes. The design of the enemy did
not become apparent until after one o'clock,
by which time the Minnesota had got under
way for the scene of action. The Roanoke
flag-ship being disabled, was taken in tow
by two gunboats. The first shot was fired
from the frigate Cumberland, at twoo'cloek,
The Sewall's Point batteries then opened
on the Minnesota, which, passing the Saw
yer gun at the Rip-Raps, replied, and the
engagement became general. After firing
two guns, the Cumberland was struck twice
by tho Merrimac's sharp bows, making
torriblo holes at liar water line. The Cum
be'rland continued firing until the water
entered her port holes, when she careened
slowly and finally sank. No apparent
effect was produced on the Merrimac by the
continuous firing from our batteries and
vessels. The Minnesota having got aground
on her way up, could render but little
assistance. Shortly after 0 o'clock, the
rebel gunboats lorktown and Jamestown,
arrived. The former was disabled early in
the afternoon, and put ashore for repairs.
After sinking tho Cumberland, the Mer
rimac turned her attention to the frigate
Congress, and in less than an hour she sur
rendered. The officers and marines were
taken prisoners, and the seamen allowed to
The frigate St. Lawrence arrived here
during the afternoon and immediately pro
ceeded up the river, following tho example
of the Miunesora and Roanoke, firing on
the batteries at Sewall's Point, but like the
rest her shots fell short.
The gunboat Mystic was also towed up,
but. at sundown, the Roanoke, Mystic and
St. Lawrence returned.
The conflict between the Minnesota and
the rebel gunboats continued without effect
till dark. At midnight the Congress was
burned by tho rebels. During the evening
the iron-clad Monitor arrived here and pro
ceeded to take" part in the action.
"Reinforcements of men and ammunition
were sent early in the'afterooon to Newport
News. During the night only an occasion
al gun was fired. 1 his momincr the con
flict was renewed, and until the presence of
me .Monitor was Known to the Merrimac,
the latter engaged with the Minnesota
which, but, for the timely arrival of the
Monitor, might have been lost. The Mon
itor and Merrimac engaged each other for
two or three hours at long and short raage
without perceptible effect on either. They
seemed almost to run one another down
once or twice. The Monitor's butteries
finally succeeded in forcing a long hole in
the port side of the Merrimac, when the
latter returned to Norfolk.
About ten o'oclck a U. S. gunboat was
struck by a shot from the Merrimac, in the
boiler. The gunboat Zouavo was also

the day on the left.
Before the day closed I wa3 convinced
the enemy had concentrated his main force
on my right. I therefore commenced n
change of my front forward so as to face
the enemy, where he had deployed on my
right flank in a Etrong position. The
change had been only partially effected, but
was fully in progress, when at sunrise, on
the 8th, my right and centre renewed firing
along the whole line, my lefr, under Gen.
Sigel, moved close to the hills occupied by
the enemy, driving him from the heights,
advancing. steadily towards Head Hollow.
I immediately ordered the centre and right
wing forward, our right turning the left of
the enemy and cross firing his centre.
This final position enclosed tho enemy in
the area of a circle. A charge of infantry
extending throughout the whole line, com
pletely routed the whole rebel force, which

ONWAHD TO VICTORY !
Victory is ours ! From all along the
line of the grand army of tho Union, ex
tending a thousand miles across the conti
nent, and from the extended shores of the
Southern States on the Atlantic and the
Gulf, come the glad tidings of victories
won. upon tne rotoraac our victory was
a bloodless one, the enemy falling back
from their stronghold at Manassas, burning
what tents, and spiking what guns they
could not carry off, leaving the whole line
of their fortifications and entrenchments
for our forces to take quiet possession of.
Fernandina, Fla., and Fort Clinch, Ga.,
have been taken by the gallant Dupont,
and we may soon expect to hcar of more
brilliant victories in that quarter.
But from Arkansas comes the news that
fills the cup of joy for Kansas to overflow
ing. There has another great victory been
won, Curtis and Sigel have met, whipped
and scattered in tho greatest confusion, the
combined rebel forcc3 under McCulloch,
Price, Van Dorn and others, and rendering
our fears of an invasion from that point a
dream of the past. Our loss is great, as
well as that of the enemy, and while we
are sending forth shouts of exultation over
our triumphs, let us not forget to drop a
tear for those who have offered up their
heart's blood on the'altar of their country,
nor fail to show in a substantial manner,
when opportunity offers, our appreciation of
the gallant acts of our brave volunteers.
THE DESTRUCTION OF THE FRONTIER.
In our last issue we mentioned that the
Frontier Printing Establishment had been
broken into by a mob, aud the material
thrown into the street. But it appears the
perpetrators of the act were not satisfied
with this demonatration of their disappro
bation of the course of that paper, and re
turned last Saturday night nnd completely
demolished the press and fixtures of the
office, broke in the windows of the building
and fired several shots rt our citizens who
showed themselves in the streets one of
ating its false and dangerous doctrines, the
better it will be for our country. Every
man who has a Bpark of patriotism, should
burst asunder party tieSj and proclaim him
self for his country, its Constitution and its
Government. To all such we can extend
the right hand of fellowship j but we want
no half-way men -no " ifs," nor " buts."

Ke-Arrest of a Convicted Mnrdeer.
A noted criminal was accidentally identi
fied in our streets yesterday and placed,
once more in custody. lie gives his name
now as "Johnson," and has been serving as
a private in Capt. Austen's company, Kan
sas Eighth. His real name is Wilkinson,
and he will be remembered as the murderer
of the Mace family in Greene county, Illi
nois a man and woman and an adopted
son having been his victims. For the
atrocious crime he was tried, convicted and
sentenced, but escaped from custody three
days before the time fixed upon for his
execution. Large rewards were offered to
secure his arrest, and officers diligently
searched for the culprit, but all efforts
failed. He was recognized yesterday by
Mr. C. J. Hanks, who formerly lived in
Grecno county, knew Wilkinson, and thinks
he cannot be mistaken as to his being the
guilty man. Sheriff Repine has taken

GRADUAL ABOLITION OF SLAVERY.
On the Gth of March, President Lincoln,
in a message to Congress, says :
"I recommend tho adoption of a joint
resolution by-your honorable bodies', which
shall be substantially as follows:
"Resolved, That the United States ought
to co-operate with any State which may
adopt a gradual abolishment of Slavery,
giving to such State pecuniary aid, to be
used by said State in its discretion to com
pensate fur the inconvenience, public and pri
vate, produced by such change of S3'stem."
This message has excited deep interest
throughout the Nation. Such a document
was not anticipated, yet it is the most im
portant ever addressed to Congress. Grad
ual emancipation has been " initiated."
This we regard as a move in the right
direction. Instead of Congress attempting
to abolish the institution of Slavery, let it
be done by the States interested, Congress
giving to such States its co-operation and
the means to compensate the owners. The
largest slave-owners in the Border States
are in favor of the project. It will no
doubt .be "initiated" by Congress, and
adopted by all the 'Border States. The
World does Move we now have a plain
common-sense movement to rid the Nation
of the cause of all our present troubles.
GENERAL J. C. FREMONT.
A Committee was appointed by Congress
to investigate tho charges preferred against
General Fremont. His defense before that
Committee has been published, occupying
twelve columns in the New York Tribune.
We have carefully read it, and it is with
much pleasure we announce that his vindi
cation of the charges and imputations
against him is complete. No commander
has ever been charged with such grave
errors and blunders, and so peremptorily
We have not learned what I deprived of his command as General Fre
the ball passing through his hand and
lodging in the hip. The wound is quite
painful, but is not considered danger
oust Such illegal conduct should be
denounced by all good citizens. Tho ten
dency of mobs is to disorganize society,
to generate ill-feeling and suspicion re
moving all the restraint of the evil passions,
and rendering insecure the persons and
property of all. If unauthorized parties
can take the law into their own bands and
redress what they may consider grevious,
no one is secure. Our office would be as
likely to be destroyed by those who do not
agree with us, as was that of the Frontier;
and so of all other species of property.
There is a proper course for the redress
of all grievances. If the tendency and
influence of the Frontier was pernicious
and dangerous to the Government, (and we
firmly believe it was,) complaint should
have been made to the proper authorities
who would bavo suppressed it without the
destruction of property that has been
witnessed in this city. This was the prop'
cr course, ana we earnestly enter our
protest, as will all good citizens, against
the destruction of property by unauthorised
Neither do we believe that in the present
unhappy condition of our country while
our armies are fighting to secure the very
existence of our nationality, that a public
journal should be permitted to create dis
sensions in our ranks by party wrangling.
To do so we consider dangerous to our
cause, and calculated to give aid and com
fort to our enemies. For instance, the
proceedings of the late Democratic Conven
tion in Indiana, were copied into the Rich
mond Fnqiiircr and other Southern papers.
Tho infamous speech of T. A. Hendricks,
was commented on with much satisfaction,
aud referred to as evidence of a reactionary
feeling nt the North, and that Lincoln's
Hessian army would soon be required to
keep down dissensions in their own midst,
and exhorting the South to stand firm, that
in a short time the North would be compel
led to acknowledge their independence.
This speech, with the resolutions adopted
by the Convention, were copied and endors
ed in strong language, by the Frontier. If
this is not incipient treason if it is not
rendering aid and comfort to the enemy,
what in the name of Heaven is it?

The Loral Indians.
Colonel Coffin arrived from the Southern:

of the loyal Indians who have been driven
from their homes on account of tho rebel
lion. There" are about eight thousand of
these, men, women and children ; and the
Agents are now removing them from the
Verdigris to the Neosho. The Colonel ,
represents the sufferings of these poor peo
pie, on account of the inefficiency of food
and clothing, as horrible,- many of them
having" frozen their feet, and some having
to undergo amputation in consequence.
The agents are doing all in their power to
supply them with the necessaries of life;
but it is impossible to prevent much hard
ship from cold. For provisions they have
done very well; but the extreme and pro
tracted winter has been the cause of manv
deaths, and considerable sickness, the meas
les having broken out among them. An
effort has been made to remove a portion of
tho Creeks to the Sac and Fox reservation,
but they have an unconquerable antipathy
to bein separated, and all wish to remain'
with and share the fate of the chief, Opoth
leybholo. These Indians have no doubt
endured more hardships ou account of their
loyalty and adherence to the Government
than any other people. Lcao. Times.

are to be brought up into the Neosho
