MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
More Lightning.—On Saturday aflei noon between the hours of five and six o'clock, a thunder tempest passed over the city, charac terised by the incessant flashing of lightning, and peals of crashing thunder. A barn be longing to Messrs. Smith A Brown, of this city, was struck by the lightning and entirely con sumed with about ftfly-five tons of hay. We learn also, that a lady, in the dwelling house near by, was stunned by the concussion, but happily sustained no other injury. A horse while standing attached to a chaise, near Lib by's corner received a death stroke, while a man occupying the vehicle remained uninjur ed. A barn belonging to a Mr. Skillings, near the Reform School, was also struck and de stroyed with its contents. Cy-It is an incontrovertible fact, that in nearly all of the cases we have had to chroni cle of deaths and injuries received by lightning the uufortnuate persons have been standing at doors or windows. It is well that windows and doors be opened during the continuance of a thunder storm, but it is not well to expose oneselfto an electric current.by standing or sit ting in front of these apertures. Many per sons have a constitutional dread of thunder and lightning, which can perhaps never be over come, no matter eveu how mucli ordinary self possession they at otiier times might be able to command. The only rule during the transit of the electric cloud, is to avoid a careless risk, such as seeking the shelter of trees, standing at open doors or windows, sitting near an animal, or handling edged instruments, Ac, Ac. The distance of a thunder cloud from a person can be tolerably well computed by conuting the number of seconds between the time of the flash, and the report received. A gentleman of this city, celebrated for his self possession and equanimity, under any and all circumstances, was asked during the storm of Saturday, to give his opinion in regard to pre caution, necessary to be taken during a thun der storm. Said be, placing his hand upon Ids heart, and reverently uncovering his head.— “Gentlemen, the best lightning rod a person can have, is that of a soul prepared to die.”— The expression produced an effect upon his auditors not soon to be forgotton. Personal.—Goo. R. Davis, Esq., of lids city, leaves town this afternoon for Portsmouth Grove Hospital, R. I., for the purjiosc of ascer taining the true condition of our Maine sol diers at the hospital, so that the facts can be reported to the Department at Washington, and that the men may be .removed to the Ma rino ITrsfirkital at Pnrtloml Wo l<«vo anon mh * -r- • rate letters from this place, in which the suf ferings of the returned sick and wounded of Williamsburg, are adverted to as being of the most heart-rending nature. Some two thous and soldiers are now lying sick at tins place, of which forty belong in our own State. To the Women or Portland.—We find it necessary to appeal to you again for aid in behalf of the sick and wounded soldiers of our State, and request that you will immediately call at the Ladies’ Committee Rooms, New City Building, where may be found large quan tities of light clothing, already cut out, but re quiring to be put together. Will you not as sist? We know that you will! Times ai’nt now as thet used to was. The good oid days when folks were willing to be called by their proper Christian names now rank with tlie past, and plain Susan, Betty and Ann have with them departed. Names now a-davs do not savor sufficiently of the roman tic unless the poetical finish of ie be annexed, vix: “ Georgie, go and tell Lucie to take Ed die and Frankie over to see cousin Emmie, and request the pleasure of her compsny at our bouse to-morrow, and also ask her to bring Susie and WHlie that they may become ac quainted with aunt Lottie and their cousins Fannie and Freddie. £»-Itis estimated that over 80,000 troops have been frirnished by Maine since the break ing out of the rebellion. EI“We noticed at the Ladies' Committee Room on Saturday last fifteen large cases of currant jelly, weighing 830 lbs. a donation from Samuel E. Spring, Esq., of this cltv. sr-we would suggest the propriety of pre senting to the 17th Regiment a flag, bearing upon it the coat of arms of the city. Will not some of our citizens move in the matter? The sermon delivered before the State street church and congregation, yesterday morning by Professor R. D. Hitchcock, of New York, was of a very impressive and sterling character. Accident.—Gustavus Cooley, of Bingham, connected with the 20th Regiment now at Camp King, while in the act of chopping a piece of board last evening, severed the thumb from his left hand. Doctor Clbrk was called who immediately dressed the wound. Bound to go.—Charles Low, or Water vine, a fireman on the Waterville train, a stout young fellow of 19 years, weighing 210 lbs and standing sLt feet in his stockings, enlisted on Saturday, without having informed his friends or employers of his intention so to do. This was somewhat of a sudden move, but Charles says he is “ bound to go for a soger.” Business fob the Police.—Two women and eleven men were arrested on Saturday evening, and confined in the Marshal's apart ments, for having yielded to the seductive in fluences of strong drink. Seven of the delin quents were sent over to the brick stronghold to await a requisition from Judge Lane, to mnrmu; mnminn tr We learn from the Courier of Satur day, that the members of the Pine street Sab bath School, have decided to take another pleasure jaunt.

Reported rapture of Chattanooga by Gen. Buel. Destruction of the Arkansas. Later from Europe. Gen. Pope's Army Fighting. Headquarters Army of Potomac, 1 Six miles from Culpepper, Aug. 0. ( A battle was fought yesterday between Gen. Banks and Stonewall Jackson. Gen. Bayard, of Gen. McDowell’s corps, with his cavalry brigade, liad been engaged the day before in the extreme advance, near the Happidan river, skirmishing and maneuvering, taking some prisoners, and ending with a slight loss, in bafBing the efforts of a large force to surround and cut him off. Yesterday morning lie was engaged for some hours tK-fore Gen. Banks earn* up, anil with 4 regiments W cavalry, the 1st Pa., 1st Me., and 1st R. I., delayed and embarrassed the enemy’s advance. The rebels under Jackson and Ewell, had crossed the Rappidan in force, and their ad vance guard. 15,000 strong, attacked General Banks yesterday afternoon, about 0 miles South of Culpepper Court House. The fight was almost wholly with artillery at first, but infantry became engaged about (J o'clock, and a determined and bloody contest followed. Gen. Bank’s right wing, under Gen. Wil liams, suffered severely. Rebel position was in the woods, while the troops which attacked them were obliged to t cross an ojien ground. It was not till about fl that it became evident the rebels were attacking in force. Previously to that there had been a rather desultory af- , lair. I TVin ll’llillo wnluil fop/ln o.i.l/lnnln ..1... .1 1_ I overwhelming numbers at all points. Nearly all their regiments had full ranks. At 7 1-2 o’clock Gen. Pope arrived on the 1 field from Culpepper, accompanied by General McDowell, with part of McDowell's corps.— The battle was substantially ove—Gen. Hanks holding the same ground he occupied at the beginning. After the arrival of Gen. Pope there was an artillery contest, continuing at intervals until nearly 12 o’clock. The night was unusually clear and moon full. Rebel* planted a battery against McDowell’* centre, where Gen. Pop*' and Gen. Hanks were bringing them both under the fire. The Generals and their stall's were so near the rebel lines, being actually in front of their own line, that a sudden charge of reliel caval ry was made from the woods, a ijuarter of a mile off, apparently with a view to capture them. The attempt was repelled by a vigorous fire front McDowell's troo|*>, and the Generals and staffs left the ground under a cross tire from the rebels and our troops. The fire of the rebel batteries was after wards silenced. Gen. Pope on arriving sent fresh troops in front to take the place of Gen. Banks’ exhausted columns. The enemy did not renew the attack except by artillery.’ The troops were under arms and in |>osition all night. Gen. Banks was on the field through out the action and constantly under tire. His handling his troops and personal gallantry was higliiy praised by his officers. The brav ery and good eonduct of his troops were con spicuous during a large part of the fight.— When overpowered by numbers some regi ments retreated in disorder. Col. Knight of the 4fith Pennsylvania regi ment was dangerously wounded; Lieut Col. Selfridge, severely; Maj. Mathews arm ampu tated ; A<\j. Boyd, severely; all of the same regiment Col. Donneley ,38th New York, fatally; Lt Col. Brown, arm amputated, Maj. Cook, killed, both same re 'imerit. Col. Chapman, 5th Connecticut, wounded and prisoner; Lieut Col.

Gen. Geary is wounded and had an arm am putated. Gen. Augur is severely wounded. Maj. Pefimge, Gen. Bank’s Adjutant, took command of a hesitating regiment ami gal lantly led it through a galling tire. He re ceived two shot* and is severely, but not dan gerously wounded. Col.

The 2d Mass, suffered severely; the 27th Indiana, 5th Connecticut and 4t>th Penn., are badly cut up. Lieut. Ramsey, of Gen. Bank's staff, had a | horse shot under him. The rebel Geo. Wilder was wounded. The losses are very heavy on both sides— i not less than 2000 or 3000 killed, wounded and ■ missing, on each side. Some prisoners were taken on both sides. Jaekson and Ewell were both present in the battle. Reinforcements under Gen. A. X. Hill, to the amount of 18,000 men, reached tire rebels last night a trout the same time ours arrived. Skirmishing in force is going oil this morn ing, hut the troops of both sides are so much exhausted by fatigue anil the intense heat, that no serious encounter is expected to-day.

The Tuscarora was at Queenstown, supposed to lie looking after a steamer known as “240” bound from Liverpool for Nassau, and designed for the ' ouieueraies, which iiuii put into Holyhead, w here all her men had left her. Various ru mors are current on the continent as to in tended mediation in American affairs. The despatch goes on to state that all these ru mors must be taken for what they are worth, the authorities upon which they are founded being “wholly unreliable.” The Army and Naval Gazette has no faith in English mediation for some time to come, except such prayers as the Bishops of Oxford recommended to his clergy in favor of peace.

S. for the purpose of evading their military duty, and those who leave their own States or place of residence and go into other States for the same purpose. The object to military duty, to bear ilia share in sup|iort ing the government. Instructions have been prepared, and will be issued on Monday to mil itary commanders, marshals and police officers, respecting the mode ol executing the order so as to interfere as little as possible with indi vidual pill-suits and business, and limit the operation of the order to cases of evasion. Tlie following order has just been issued from the head quarters of the military district of Washington: All soldiers now employed as nurses, cooks, attendants, or in any other capacity, in the dif ferent hospitals, and who are able to join their regiments, will be relieved of such duty and sent to their regiments.

Washington, August 10. A gentleman who was at Aiken's landing on Thursday gives ail interesting account of the exchange of prisoners at that poiut. Our ves sel arrived there at one o’clock in the 1’. M., and in the course of 6 hours delivered all the 3013 rebel prisoners to Commissioner Hubert Ould. The U. S. prisoners had walked 13 miles, and were in an almost famished condi tion—their fare having lieen two small biscuits each for the entire day. They had suffered ex tremely for the want of water, and it was only after the entreaty of Mr. Ould with with the colonel having charge of them, that they were permitted ill squads to quench their thirst at a well. Capt. J. S. Stevenson of the marine ar tillery connected with our boats, distributed foon, and otherwise relieved their necessities. They remained oter night at the landing, Mr. Aiken, the proprietor of the plantation, fur nishing them witii straw on which to sleep.— Early the next day they were taken on board our transports. Mr. Ould acknowledged that tbe rebel prisoners had been better treated by the U. S. authorities than our own men at Richmond, and certainly the contrast between the two parties furnished proof of this fact.— Sometime this week the arrangement for the exchange of officers is expected to be consum mated. An order hns been issued railing u|kui all officers who are on parole to report their j names, rank and address to the Adj’t General, that arrangement may be made for their cx j change.

The Commercial learns front a gentleman who left Richmond on the 1st, that a fearful pestilence is raging there, and hundreds are dying daily. The rebel army, which numbers 200.000 men, is in a fearful state of destitution. The generals had quarters, and a large portion of the army has been removed to the South side of the river. Although the army Is so large, the leaders find it impossible to bring more than 100,000 men into the Held at once. New York, Aug. 10.
