Wo expect to make an attack on them tbe last of this week, and drive them out, ss we have to take every place they fortify. Fourteen of Company II went to church last Sunday to Alexandria, seven miles. We had a good Union sermon. It was communion day. We have a Protestant chaplain, but he Is not allowed to preach, as two-thirds of tho regi ment are Catholics. Tbo priest Is here twice a week, and tbey ull have a chance to go to mass. There wus quite a number angry last Sunday because we got a pus from the major to go church. STKALIXO PaUCltES. Two of our company were out In a peach orchard between our pickets and secesh, get ting peaches; ono of tbe boys saw two rebel', and tired on them, but his musket would not reach them. They both fired back with rifles, and hit the feuce closo to our boys where they bad hid. Tbey left a handkerchief and haver sack of peaches, and toek double qu'ck back to our lines. RIDF. WITH A SLAVE. P. Reynold, of tho Tennallytown Camp, writes: I went down to Georgetown vesterdav to get soma necessary articles for our company, and on my way bjck got a ride with a Blave, that had been down to market with a load of hay for his master. In conversation with him, he told me that Bill und Tom run away last night, and his master told him that he would give him a dollar if he would flud them. I asked him why he did not go too; lie Raid he should have cone the other day, but massu said he would give him fifty cent) tor every load of bay be sold, so he said ne thought no enouiu stay a little wbllo longer. DOI.no l'ICKLT DUTY. Wallls K. Southtcorth, In a regiment near the Chain Bridge, thus describes picket duty: At 3 o'clock, wc were cent eight miles up the river as picket guards. , we got there half past G o'clock, were divided into Bquadf four, and stationed ten rods apart; two were to watch and tne other two Bleep: we naa orders to He on the ground with our feet together so as to see each way. Wbeu wo watched two hourB we woke the others us silently as possible, It seemed like a long tilgbt. In tho day time. It goes very well, as we can leuvo.one man ut the post and Havel around; but we cannot go far, as the rebels are all around u. TAKINC1 SOMETUIMl TO EAT. Myself and two others went off und got some thing to eat; we got a ben apiece. The cap tain got a hive of bees; bo we had some honey. Some of the boyB got a turkey. The next day we had a good dinner. Wo had to run down the chickens; If we had shot them It would raise an alarm. Probably you call this steal log but I don't. We got them of a man that owns 0,000 acres of laud and 500 slaves. There are a good many farms lelt ulono, the owners having gone South and taken what they could with them. A SECESSION FIJI) Qeorge Warner, ol Captain Gates's company, has been In a Dght near tbe Chain Bridge, and eays: We took a secession flag. I will put a lit tle piece in tbla letter. I could not get any more, for tbe boys tore ft all up in little pieces, and they pretty much all got a little piece We are all ready for another fight, and it can not come too quick. OEOnaE (JETS A CIIICIflN. When I was oomiDg home, I saw (ire or fix chickens sitting on tbe fence- and gut one, and tho others flew. We are going to have It to-day for dinner. I wouldn't be at home for quite a sum. I have got case-hardened. BUN DAT AMl'SKSIENTB. J. II. Albright, of Fort McIIenry, thus de scribes the Sunday amusements of his com- pany: It Is now Sunday, and about 2 o'clock, p. m. The boys aro amusing themselves in various ways, some ere reading, somo aro writing, ana some are talking about the war. Fred. PIney Is playing his guitar and Charley Gil more Is playing the fiddle. The meat of thorn do little realize that they ure engaged In war. I oaa hardly make ft seem so myself, but still when I Bee prisoner nlier prisoner marched in here, I oan but think that wu are In un enemy's country. A CURIOra FUNEIIAI. PltOCKSSIUN. On tho anniversary of the bombardment of Fort McIIenry, tho ijlbwlng incident oc curred: There was a curious incident happened that day about 1 miles from camp. About tbe time the cannon wero fired there wai a fumral procession som to be crossing the bridge wl.lch crosses the PataDsco river. Tbe bridge) It In plain sight of our camp, and is guarded Dy a company of men at each end and a pentry to each pier. Tho i roci sslon was headed by a preacher and heaiso, nod there were about thirty men and women, apparently mourneis They had advanced part way across the bridge when oao o't the sentries surprised them, and Insisted on seeing the corpse, but the priest re fused, saying that the person had been dead several days and emelt very bad, but the gu ird was bound to see, and also called for the cor poral of the guard. Tho coffin was opened, and found to be full of Colt's revolvers, worth about HO ca:h, and also ojot of paper con cerning prominent men In Baltimoro, one of whom Is Rocs Winans, tho inventor of the gi eat sleam gun. They were all taken the same night to the fort. The preacher proved to be a lebel cantalu. and the wonn-n were moil In disguise. They are all confined heie In a brick barn, witn guaru9 at every aoor. Th Frcmont-Hlntr Correspondence. TLe following additional letters in relation to tho Fttmont embiogllo arc now published: IIaedquaiiteiu, Western DEPAnTEENT, St. Lons, Sept. 25, 1801. Hut: In consequenco of a telegram from your brother, Postmaster General Blair, followed by a letter asktnsr your release, for publlo reasons, the Commanding General instructs me to say that you ure hereby released from arrest, and directed to resume your sword, and join yoHr regiment for duty. Ho also directs me to.Inform you that, as a personal matter, this question has had no in terest for him, but when your family position wan used by you to lay private letters, with unsuBtalned accusations, before tho Frcsldi nt, disturbing the President's confidence in the Commanding General, and seriously impairing the efficiency of thN Department, then It be came his duty to urrott yon. Tbe Commanding Gencrul, In directing your release, trusts to your sense of duty to, In fu ture, avoid so evident a breach of military propriety. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, (Signed) Cuacncey McKeeveb, Assistant Adjutant Genera), To Col. trank P. Blair, ;'un , first Missouri light artillery, bt. Louis. St. Louis, September 20, 1801. Brigadier General L. Tliomai. Adjutant Oeneralqf the United States Army, irajftlnfon, D. V: General: I herewith enclose a letter from Captain McKeever, Assistant Adjutant General, addressed to me. by Ihe order of Major General John C. Fremont, commanding the Western Department, which Is dated September 24, 1861, and was received by me last evening. You will observe that the letter orders ray release from arrest, as It alleges, in consequence ot tho request of my brother, Postmaster Gen eral Blair, and accompanies tho order for my release with some strictures upon "tbe breach of military propriety," of which It states I have been guilty, and states moreover that the im propriety consists In using ray " family posi tion to lav private letters with unsustained accusationsbefore the President, disturbing the. President's confidence In the Uommandlng uen eral, and seriously impairing the efficiency of ihi. iiAnftprmAnr '' I feel myself constrained to say that I have not, in my opinion, been guilty of any act of Impropriety, but have performed my simple duty to tho Government In tho act to which the letter refers, whloh was, morover, done at tbe instance of the President himself; and that I tun unwilling, under any circumstance, to shield myseif from responsibility by the influence or favor of any individual. I could not, without an utter disregard for ray character as an officer and a gentleman, permit the statement that I had made unxiis taintd accusations against the Commanding General of this Department to pa i without n tice, and therefore, as soon as the cbirg"3 c in be made In form, I shall transmit them to you through the proper channel, to be laid before the President ; and, If he shall consider it ex pedient to order a court martial, I shall be prepared to sustain the accusations I have made against the Commanding General of this Department. In tho meantime, ns I find myself and my motives assailed in the nubile press of this city, which, under the military surveillance which exists In this Departmmt, could hardly have lieen alio eed except by the sanction of the Commanding General, and as my arreFt and 'release without any charge preferred agalnrt me has given rleo to imputation upon ray character as an officer, I demand a Court of Inquiry to nllbrd me an opportunity of clearing myself from all stain in a mutter which I con sider vital to the honor of a soldier, and in which I believe that I have acted for the good of the service alone. Respectfully, your obedient servant, Frank P. Blair, Jun. Colenel First Regiment Mo. Light Artillery. Tub Feelino at the Soufii. A correspond ent at Fortress Monroo says: Pereona who by flaga of truce reach here, via Norfolk, from Ricbmood and other cities In the Souib, bear witness to the comparatively liberalized state of feeling prevalent at Nor folk. I have before referred to tbe feet that In that city there Is a Union Lencnc that has grown bo Influential as to cause Gen linger to. be unwilling to undertake to deal wltb it. list ho should make (for the rebels) a bad matter worse. I have nearu gentlemen lately speak of tho liberal treatment received at his bands In " passing through tbe dreary land " of sc ceeelondom, as well as the general deportment of the community, differing in so marked a manner from what they saw elsewhere as to make them feel that they were in another land, and Indeed about to emorge from darkness Into light. It Is well known that Gen. Huger went Into the service of Jeff. Davis, not only at a late day, but with extreme reluctance, and with the assurance to bis Union friends that he Joined the rebellion Iu tbe hope of bnng useful in giving it a speedy termination, and m ro in love for the old flag than with spirit of resent ment. The Klnz of Portugal has Isued a proclama tion atrlotly prohibiting privateering, or har boring of prlvateors, In his dominions. ( HEAT II U S II ' II II aitvtlNTII im? r'rr?
