A Great Battle. The enemy Is said to bo

has bccnmyprhllegotolead uoblo regiments
of oluntccrs, coming from different States,
but becoming cqtiully national through having
tho same purpose, tho samo dangers and the

lojalty will remain, In the future as In tho past,
firm and steadfast to our country and Its au
Scott ov Bicuanav. Wo havo purposely
abstained from Inserting tho personal rejoinder
of Lieut. Gen. Scott to Ex-Prcsldcnt Buchanan
because, w o rcgord It In the light of uu Indl-
lldual controversy, and tho times demand that
our columns should not bo glun up to such
personalities. It Is well known, that while
Gen. Scott Is a lojul man, In tho scusoof a
professional soldier, he has alw nj s been Influ
enced, to n great cxtont, by his Virginia birth
and antecedents. No one who knew him w us
surprised that ho should be willing, In n certain
c ontlngency, to say, as ho did, of tho seceded
States, "Waj word sisters, go In pcaeo."
Tho criticisms of Gen. Scott on Mr. Buch
anan, therefore, nro to bo taken cumgianotallt,
Tbcro Is no question that If ho bad been more
elllclcnt himself, our country would bo Inn dif
ferent condition from what it Is now.
The general shows, In repl to Mr. Buch
anan's assertion to the contrary, that at tho
time of tho brcuklng out of the rebellion tberu
wcro "mailable troops within loach of tho
government!" und thut It uus tho ncgleet of
tho Into administration to call on him to push
them forward that lost Sumter, Morgan, Pick
ens, McRue, Juckson, and other Southern forts.
Ho asserts that with even the comparative!)
small regular forces at his command, If Presi
dent Buchanan hud authorized him, ho would
havo nipped tho rebellion In the bud.
Gen. Scott is loth to bollevo that tho late
1'resldcut wasprlv) to tho withdrawal bj Gen.
Hojcl of the 115,000 extra muskets and lilies,
and luO plicea of heavy artillery, fioin tho
Northern magazines to those of thu South,
btlll Mr. Buchanan asserts that he was cognl.
zuut of this outrage, and wu do nut seo why he
hliould not be believed.
In this letter, as Iu bis olhtr doeuuieuts on
this subject, Gen. Scott luukes it plain that Mr.
Huchunanwus opposed to tho releutlou of tho
Loutli In the Union by force. Such will bo the
record of hlstor.

per'a Ferry Il.port.
Our venerable- neighbor over tho way In Its
lssuo of yesterday proposes an elaborate sneer
at tho expenso of tho Harper's Ferry report.
That a falluro should accompany such an effort
Is not tho fault of tho aged concern, and If we
read only tho extracts presented and disregard a
few lmportont facts, It Is not such a failure, and
tho sneer is a very rcspcctablo sneer. For ex
ample, wo are assured that In tho body of tho
report Gen. McClcllan Is censured for not re
lieving Harper's Ferry, and In Its eloso wo nro
Informed that Gen. McClcllan did In reality re
lievo tho garrison. This Is nil l cry good, w ro

wasted their tlmo and our Ink lit such a con

very ablo report of tho commission, but It suc

dition. Tho sneer never widens Into a laugh.
Tho Intelligencer does not feel like laughing.
It, on tho contrary, Is rpilto miserable. Tho
Intelligencer could weep, If weeping wcro of any
at ail, and tho reason for this III naturcd, spite
ful, unhappy condition any child can read. Had
tho report contained only censuro on Ford,
Miles, und Wool, our neighbor would havo
pronounced It tho most brilliant production of
tho day. But unfortunatel , theso old arm of

used tho fucts presented and pronounced Judg

conscreatho humbug went down. Hence tho

Its contempt for truth. While other Journals

Correspondence of the Philadelphia InquMtr
Gainisvillb, Va., Nov. 118 n. in , Every
ono hero was startled, yesterday morning, by a
rumor that tho wholo of General Blgel's body
guard had been captured by tho rebels at Fredcr
Icksburg, and that this had been occasioned
by the treachery of a scout.
This caused tho utmost excitement and de
jection. Later In tho day news ofn different
character was received, which qulto changed
tho aspect of affairs. General Slgcl's body
guard w as safe not a man of It captured i but
they were In Fredericksburg, had a sevcro fight
and captured a largo number of tho enemy.
To giro a somewhat detailed statement of the
affair, we will begin with the starting of the
expedition. It left hero on Saturday morning,
numbering flftyfour men. Captain Dahlgrcn,
chief of tho staff, commanded tho party. Cant.

and then tho remaining guard followed Iu less

TROM NORTH CAROLINA.
We have confllctlnc rumors from Pa.ii.rn
Carolina. Ono report says that our forces w cro
lorccu 10 aoanuon a strong rortlucatlon several
miles below Tarboro', on Thursday, after a
heavy bombardment of several hours from tho
enemy's guns. It Is also reported that tho
Yankees brought seventy flcld-plecca Into tho
action. W hcthcr tho first of these reports has
any foundation In fact, or not, wo aro nnable
to say, but wo may say, In regard to tho latter,
that we do not believe the enemy brought tho
half of set enty guns to bear on our forces.
Another rumor Is, that tho enemy nro rapidly
retiring to Washington, wlicro the will bo un
der the protection of their gunlioats. These
rumors were current, on our streets )esterdoy,
and we glvo them only as rumors, nnd for what
they aro worth. If they havo been officially
confirmed, we havo jet to ascertain the fact.
Tho Goldshoro TWiimc, of Thursday last,

of tho enemy forced our men to rail back. Our
loss, w o understand, is twelve killed and w wind
ed, and that or tho enemv over one hundred.
Much damago was donu, b) shelling, to tho
buildings Iu Wllllamston and Hamilton. We
learn thai cars novo been ordered to Torlmro1
lo move Government stores.
Wo also learn that tho programmo ortho ene

Torres from Klnston, and then march np on the
sonin sine oi lue ftcuso river Irom piewliern
nnd tako Klnston "n Ithout firing a gun." Our
authorities, however, got Information to that
etleet, and on Tuesday night all the available
forces around Klnston received marchlmr or
ders to go as near Ncwbern as they could get.
Consequently, wo may expect stirring news In
a short tlmo from that direction.
Bo all this as It may, w e are still of the be

Missouri has certainly elected to tho next
House of national Representatives, ont of her
delegation of nine, Jlvt members, who are openly
and unmistakably pledged to tlio thorough en
forcement of the President's proclamation of
freedom, and are radical supporters of the
principles upon which that policy is founded
They aro Knox, Blow, Boyd, McClurg and
Loan, and possibly one other, viz t Green. She
has, In addition to that, chosen an Emancipa
tion legislature, which will send two good on 1
true men to tho United States Senate, aud so
shape tho legislation of tho State as to bring It
In harmony with tho recommendation of the
President, and by freeing her soil from the
presence of slavery, relievo ft also from the
curso of rebellion.
Whatever may bo the verdict of the people of
the North upon the policy the President has
seen lit to Inaugurate by his noblo message of
liberty to four millions of enslaved men, In the
great work of suppressing tho rebellion, the

a slave State, and the first to speak lu response.

which have so fur remained truo to tho Govern

Wo have, for ourselves, ever since tho first
