The health of the regiment was pretty good. Excursion.—About 500 of the citizens of Auburn aud Lewiston paid a visit to our city yesterday, aud went over to Camp Abraham Lincoln. Tlie train consisted of twelve ears. It arrived here about 8 o’clock A. M., aud left at 5 o'clock P.

The three regiments will probably all leave next week. By™Yesterday was a busy day with the Portland recruits at Camp Iaacolu. The city bounty was paid to them by Henry P. laird. Esq., City Treasurer. The men are making all the necessary preparations for their depart ure for the scut of war early next week. sar- The Hutchinson*—who lias not heard of them; what friend of liberty lias not frit the power of their simple songs and ballads, aud what friend of negro-slavery lias not foamed and frothed against them ?—the incomparable Hutchinson*, will give one of their inimitable entertainments at the new City Hall tomorrow evening. Tup Atipsik .vita'Li 'PH.. ____ were advertised to give their farewell concert iu St. John X. B. last evening. They will ar rive here iu the steamer to-morrow morning, aud will give a concert at Lancaster Hall iu the evening. During tboir recent tour through the Provinces they have met with the public favor. AccniExi*.—While Mr. Win. Cobb, of Saco, was at work on the new scboolbouse yester day afternoon, a number of heavy planks fell from one of the stagings, some eight or ten feet, and struck him in such a manner as to inflict several severe wounds upon his head and face, and fractured the right shoulder blade. Dr. Lamb dressed the wounds, and last evening Mr. Cobb was quite comfortable. A Warm Dat.—Yesterday was the warm est day in the month oi October that lias been experienced by any of our oldest inhabitants. In the forenoon, iu the shade, the mercury ranged at 84 to 86. and two degrees higher in more exposed localities. Between 2 and 3 o'clock P. M., iu a (Mr exposure, the mercury, by Farenhcit. reached 00 degrees—a higher point it is believed than is on record in any October on the sea coast of Maine. 23T“At a special meeting of the Board of Aldermen, held yesterday allernoon. Alderman Larrabse was appointed to confer with the Board of Overseers of the Poor in regard to the removal of offal from buildings in the city.

Smith is President, is erecting a large build ing *>c the inception of ice the ensuing w in ter, on Ubbysi Wharf, near the Basin of the Cumberland aud -Qxford Canal. The bouse will be 100 feet long t**bout 50feet in width, and will hold about a largs s^gan n t i ty of ice. We understand that It Is the 0*isw>se or the Company to keep the "Basin” clear 6„„w next winter, in order to facilitate the cutnnp of the crop of ice, uud if so. tlierg will he rare linfirt in imwnnct Air llm kbuii.iK, of lu.ik Death at Camp Abraham Lincoln.— Mr. Joseph Porter, of Co.

The disease was congestion of tlie lungs. He was buried yes terday afternoon in this city, Ills company per forming the last funeral rites for tlieir late comrade. This is the second death in the Hospital since the organization of the camp. In this connection, we would refer our readers to the card of Docl True, Acting Surgeon of the Brigade, in another column. Mercantile Library Lectures.—Ar rangements are bdng made by the Mercantile Library Association for a brilliant course of lectures the coining season. Engagements have been effected with Hon. Edward Everett, who will deliver the introductory lecture, Rev. Dr. Bellows, Rev. Mr. Milburn, the blind preacher, Rev. H. Ward Beecher, who will give two lectures, Rev. Mr. Bolles, of this city, Rev. Dr. Hedge, and others. The Di rectors of the Association arc determined that the course shall be full up to the popular feel ing. The lecture on Monday, by Mr. Gough, is independent of the course. Those who w ish to hear this popular lecturer, should purchase their tickets in season, as no more w ill be sold than the hall can comfortably accommodate. The Defaulter.—The case of Lieut. Carpenter, mentioned in our issue of yester day, on investigation, does not appear near so bad as has been reported. It appears that Lieut. C. has acted towards the International Bauk with honorable motives. At the time he drew his check on the Sub-Treasurer at Bos ton for $0000,which was cashed at the Interna tional, he had standing to his credit oil the Sub-Treasurer’s books upwards of $22,000. But disjiatclies had I wen received by the Sub Treasurer from Augusta, stating that fears were entertained that Lieut. C. was a default er, and, therefore, the Sub-Treasurer refused to honor the check. It is alto said that all the deficiency there is, amounts to about $2000, which Lieut. C. says he lias lost in some unac countable manner. The bills which he re ceived from tlie International Bank had not been touched, and the packages were un broken. They are now in the hands of Capt. Gardiner, U. S. A., at Augusta. £.y"W little town of Wbitiwyvjlle, in Eastern Maine, gave 13 Republican iniyority last year; this year 2 Democratic, Iteason— twenty-five of her voters had meanwhile en listed for the war, more than twenty of them Republicans.

Keep the toes of these socks toward the rebels. CUesterlown, BY TELEGRAPH. TO THE Portland Daily Press. FROM CORINTH. An Account of the late Battle. Desperation of the Rebels and Bravery of our Troops. DEATH OF REBEL OFFICERS. The Enemy's forces Fifty Thousand. ' _ Corinth, Oci. .y The correspondent of the St. Louis Demo crat has tlie following details ol the buttle at ! Corinth on the morning of the 3d. Our out I posts were attacked by the enemy in force : about six miles north-east of Corinth, and be | fore nine o’eloek the engagement became gen i eral. and a fierce ami sanguinary battle w as fought. Our men under Koreeranz stisKl up j manfully, and fought with great coolness and bravery, but regiment alter regiment and brig I ade alter brigade ] muled in upon us, amlgpe \ were Ibreeil slow ly backward, tlgliling desj^r ately. The rebels pushed forward with deter mined obstinacy, and held every fool ol their advantage ground. They outflanked our infe rior force, and obliged us to tall back still fur ther to prevent this movement tVom being ac complished. The enemy w ere now inside our breastworks, pushing u< backward* towards the town, when the darkness put an end to the lighting foe tile day. During the day’s light our loss was heavy, but that of tile enemy must have largely ex ceeded ours. Three pieces ol the first Missou ri battery wen- captured, after having stood for hours before the enemy’s fire. Brig. Gen. Ilacklenian tell mortally wound- I ed at the head of his men, and the same even- | ing Geo. Oglesby w as shot ill tile breast.— | ' About four o'clock on the morning of the ! fourth, the enemy opened briskly on the town j with shot and shell. Our batteries replied, j and for an hour or more a heavy cannonading j w as kept up. At the expiration of that time j two rebel guns had been disabled, and shortly i after daylight their battery of seven guns was i captured. A portentous quiet soon occurred, and it j [ by the enemy. The Western sharpshooters, ; under Col. Burke, were ordered forward as ] skirmishers to feel the enemy. At half past nine they met him three quarters of a mile in advance of our line of battle, advancing rapids ; Iv in heavy columns upon the town, luinidi ately a murderous tire was opened on this heavy line by our skirmishers, who slowly be gan to retire, returning the lire of the enemy with effect. The woods seemed alive with reb els, and it appeared impossible for this gallant regiment to escape destruction in their retreat over tlie three quarters of a mile which inter vened between them and ourtemporary works i of defence. For a few minutes tlie engage- I inent bee^ne general. Our batteries opened a destructive tire on the exposed ranks of the rebels, mowing them down like grass. Their ; slaughter was frightful, hut with unparalled daring recklessness, they pushed impetuously ; forward. They charged our works desperate- j ly, broke our lines of infantry, and captured a small fortification, in which a battery of tlie ! 1st Missouri was planted. All seemed lost, ami a temporary panic seized our men, and the rebels once more marched into the streets of Corinth, but new batteries o|iened on them, and our men, under tlie direction of a few courageous officers, and stimulated by their example, fought desper ately. and the advance of the enemy was checked. They wavered, and then fell back. Our lost battery was regained, and once more it hurled destruction into their ranks. Tlie day was saved, and the euemy in full retreat. Our loss was comparatively small during this fearful charge. That of the euemy was full twenty to our one killed. Among tlie rebel killed left on the Held were Brig. Gen. Bodger* of Now Orleans, Colonel and acting Brigadier Johnson of Miss., amt another colonel commanding a brigade, whose name was not learned. Tlie enemy were commanded by Van Dorn, Price and Villiplque, with their respective ar my corps, which swelled their forces to fifty thousand. It is impossible yet to give a list of tlie casualties. Our proportion of the officers killed is thought to be large. We lost but four take.u prisoners. Items Irom Southern Papers. Rebel Military Exemption Act. Ginancial Matters of the Confederacy. FIGHT NEAR SAVANNAH, GEORGIA. Fortress Monroe, Oct. 7. Commissioner Ould, of the rebel Govern nient.reluses to exchange the prisoners of State belonging to Virginia, on the ground that they ! were taken on the territory belonging to the Confederacy. The Richmond Examiner of the 6th con tains the military exemption art passed Sept. 16th. which exempts police for sections of the country haring a dense negro population, edi tors, and such help as they require in their business, employees of transportation and tel- i egraphic couqianies, ministers, physicians, shoemakers, tanners, blacksmiths, wagon mak ers, millers, superintendents and employees in hospital.-, and wool, cotton and paper mill em ployees on Government works, overseers of plantations, and one man to every five hundred head of cattle. The exemption act passed April 21st is repealed. The Examiner says:—Congress lias serious business on its bauds. The subject of reve nue and finance is now before it. The bill provides that every citizen shall give to the Government one-fifth of his gross income, and receive in acknowledgment eight per cent, bonds. Of all loans, the eight per cent, is tbe worst of all taxes. Twenty per cent, gross income is most oppressive. By this project. Congress strikes a heavier blow at our credit than the public enemy. The Government lias committed financial blunders enough to ruin its credit if the confidence of the public were not so well supported. Congress has postponded adjourned to the i 13th. Patrick McGowan and John Keleliar were ! allot at Camp Lee on Saturday tor desertion. Owen McGuire received Ally lashes same day for the same offence. The Examiner lias a despatch, dated Savan- j nnh. Oct. 4th, which says:—The Federal* at tacked our batteries on St. Johns first, and ! after an hour's engagement were repulsed. Ihe Federal* subsequently landed at Green ville Point in force, and march a mile to the | mi <mij iMin-ry, wnen* me ngui com- , inenced at 10 A. M. No particulars received. FROM KENTUCKY. GEN. MORGAN AT FRANKFORT. Louisville. Oct. 8. Reliable reports just received say Gen. Morgan's advance readied Frankfort on Sat urday afternoon, and that 3000 more of his men were rapidly approaching that place. Our troops had left Frankfort for Lawrencc burg, Ky. On Saturday, near Cardesville, Scott’s rebel cavalry cut off and dispensed a company of the Oth Kentucky cavalry, under Lieut. Mor ris, and has not been beard from since. It is reported that Lieut. Morris and two privates were shot after their capture by the rebels. Gen. Duinont’s division is still at Shelby ville. Fire. Oil City, Pa., Oct. 8.-9 P. M. A terrific fire in the oil well at Oil Creek, on Blood & Tar’s firms is now raging. Seve ral refineries and thirty thousand barrels of oil have been burned, liesides a great many build ings* The fire extended over half a mile. Loss from $100,UU0 to $200,000. FROM ARKANSAS. Numbers and Encampments of the Enemy. Removal of State Records. IIki.kxa, Ark., Oct. 4. A correspondent of the Missouri Republican says: We have late and very reliable intelligence from the rebel forces in this State, which are regarded by military men here as worthy of confidence. It is as late as the 18th and 22d ult., and seriously modifies many reports we have heard, some of whieli have reached the country. According to this information the rebel forces in Arkansas number, and are encamped as follows: Gen. Hindman, at Austin, 35 miles north of Little Rock, with 5000 men and one battery.— Gen. Roan at White Sulphur brings, near l'inc lllutls, on the Arkansas river, 50 miles south east of Little Rock, with 5000 men, two regi ments of whom are conscripts, one unarmed; also a Texan regiment, and one battery con sisting of three fi-poundcm,uew, one 12-poiind er, brass, and one seige piece mounted. Gen. McRea is on the Arkansas river, 30 miles northwest of Napoleon. Gen. Rains is at Cross Hollow, with a reported force of from 400o to 5o00 men, mostly conscripts. Gen. Holmes, Commander-In-Chief of all the forces, is at Little Rock, with about 2000 men and two batteries of 2 and 3-pounddrs, and two t itled 0-pounders and 2-pounder howitzers. Gen. McBride is at Batesvlile, w ith about 3000 men, only 1500 of whom are effective. Most of their cavalry force is dismounted, and at present it is not believed they have more than 2300 cavalry in the State. At Arkadelphla, 80 or 100 miles southwest of Little Rock, the rebels manufacture muni tions of war, and have removed there all the State records and papers. Though the rebel generals boast of their in tention to iuvade Missouri, it is not believed by intelligent men in their camps that they intend to do so. If they save the capitol of their Suite, it is all they desire at present, and perhaps more than they expect. Massachusetts Democratic State Convention. Purport of their Resolution*. The Convention Adjourns amid Confusion. Boston, Oct. 8. The Democratic State Convention, held at Worcester to-day, was fully attended. E. O. Bailey, editor of the Boston Herald, presided. A motion to adopt the People's ticket nomi nated at the Faneuil Hall convention, was dis cussed witli considerable warmth. Resolu tions were read, pledging support in the use of all legitimate means to suppress the rebel lion; urging the President to stand by the : Constitution; repudiating the meeting of the Governors; eulogizing Gen. McClellan; smy pathizing with the families and friends of those who have fallen; that the province of the Gov- j eminent is to save the Union, and not to save ; or destroy slavery; tiiat we are opposed alike i to secession and alxilitionism, and there can j be no pcrmaneut Union where these exist; tendering sympathy to the loyal men in the border States; recommending making no nom inations, hut expressing a willingness to unite i with conservative men of all parties: regret ting that the President, forgetful of his obli gations. has issued his emancipation proclatna tion, and protesting against it, and against the j suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, and I calling on tlie President to restore the trial by i jury, and giving freedom of speech and to the , press. Judge Wells moved to amend by rec- I ommending the adoption of the Faneuil Hall | ticket. Tlie convention adjourned amid great confusion, and without clearly leaving any record of its action. _ FROM WASHINGTON. Court of Enquiry against Fits John Porter. Order Kisjsvtlsf Ckuplniits.

They destroyed the ballot box and enrolling papers, and either forced or scared the Commissioners and Pro vost Marshal to resign. They claimed to have 200 men armed, and said they were determined to resist the draft at all hazards. They d» numiced the government and those attempting to sustain it. A battalion of the (I3d Indiana regiment was ordered to Hartford, and will ! enforce the draft and arrest the ringleaders of these disgraceful proceedings. The Turf. New York, Oct. 8.

The London Times.—The Duke of Wel lington very clearly expressed ids idea of the honesty and fairness of this “leading journal” when he wrote in reference to its abuse of him: “The truth is, I refused to employ a rela tive of the editor ol the Times in my family, and that is the reason be lias accused me of corruption.” £y~Uov.
