In consequence of the illness of Judge Davis an arrangement has been mad ■ by which Judge Fox will hold the term in Knox County, and Judge Walton will continue to hold the term for this County. Trial of a Steam Fire Engine.—The steam fire engine Falmouth, built by the Port land Company, was tried on Saturday in pres ence of the Chief Engineer and Committee on Fire Department, with the most satisfactory results. With a one and a half inch pipe it threw a stream of water, against the wind, a distance of 225 feet. This distance it subse quently exceeded nearly 50 feet. A trial w as then made with throwing four streams, and then three streams, in both of which it did handsomely. In the latter trial, through 200 feet of hose, w ith 1 1-2, 1 1-4 and 15-16 inch nozzles, it threw streams a distance of 215 feet. The engine was worked by Mr. Johnson, the designer, and proved superior to anything we have yet seen in this city. Personal.—Sale of Real Estate.—We tinders Lind tlmt Hon. S. P. Shaw has sold his residence, corner of High and Pleasant streets, to Joseph W. Over, Esq. It is said on the street, that the consideration paid was one quarter of the ship Kate Dyer, 1200 tons, now under a large charter to the Chincha Islands. Mr. Shaw is aliout to remove to Cambridge, Mass. Our citizens will part with him with regret. Since his residence in Portland he lias ' interested himself in all the enterprises which would enure to the benefit of our city, and has ever been liberal in aid to the poor ami dis tressed. Narrow Escape.—As the York & Cum berland train was approaching the depot, Sat urday afternoon, Mr. Ira Winn, with a horse and chaise, was about crossing tile track to go up Preble street. Mr. Winn endeavored to check his horse and the Engineer tried to stop tiie train, hut neither were successful. Mr. Winn seeing the danger he was in,jumped from the chaise and escaped without injury. The engine struck the vehicle and smashed it completely. The horse escaped injury. It was a narrow—nay, almost a miraculous es cape lor Mr. Winn. Arrest of Sabbath Bbeakers.—The police, yesterday, arrested seven lads in Centre street and vicinity, who were playing in the streets and making a great disturbance. They were taken to the lockup. A portion of them were let out last evening, and the others will be released this morning. This should Ik; a caution to the boys, not to play in the street or make any disturbance on the Sabbath. The next ones arrested for these acts, we are assured, will not get off so easily. I hoops from Augusta.—The 2Sth Maine Regiment, Col. Woodman, left Augusta twenty minutes before seven o’clock,Saturday evening, and arrived in this city at 10 o’clock, P. M. They remained here but a short time, and at half past ten o'clock were on their way to Boston. Another regiment will leave Augusta this evening, and the third and last regiment on Wednesday evening. Obsequies.—The body of Charles II. Pres ton, private in the 17th U. S. Infantry, was conveyed to the Grand Trunk depot Saturday, to be taken to Benton, where his parents re side. A detachment of the 17th Infantry, with Poppenburg's band and the drum corps, es corted the body to the depot. Mr. Preston, it will lie recollected, jgas one of the unfortunate individuals who was drowned last week by the sinking of a sailboat. Labcent.—Last evening a son of Caleb Small drove up to Ins father's store in Market Square, juuiped out of the wagon and went into the store for something. He was gone but about two minutes, and on returning found that somebody had stolen a woolen long shawl and a quilted robe from the wagon. The engine on the outward bound train, Saturday afternoon, on the York & Cumber land Railroad, when near Morrill’s Corner, collapsed a flue. No one was injured. The train was obliged to back into the city to ob tain auotber engine. Personal.—Rev. George Leon Walker, pastor of State Street Church, will leave, with bis family, for Vermont, Wednesday, in order, if possible, to recover his health—his congre gation having voted him three mouths leave of absence. EF- A rumor is in circulation that Govern ment is about calling into service the steamers from this port which were lately under charter to it. There may be some foundation for the rumor though we cannot trace it to any relia ble source. Iff” The remains of Quartermaster Water house did not arrive, as was expect**), yester day. They may be here to-day, in which ease the funeral will probably take place to-morrow. The wife anil mother of Mr. Waterhouse re turned home yesterday. Personal.—Capt. Charles C. G. Thornton, of Co. C, 12th Maine regiment, arrived in this city Saturday and proceeded to his residence in Scarboro. He is absent Irom his command on a short furlough. Sale of a Steamboat.—The steamer T. F. Secor, which recently plied between this port and the Kennebec river, was soht on Sat urday to parties in Philadelphia. The price paid was $15,000. Body Recovered.—1The body of Julia Deraid, one of the girls drowned last Monday by the sinking of a boat, was recovered Friday afternoon. J3P* Harper's Weekly and Leslie's Illustra ted newspapers, for this week, have been re ceived at the bookstore of A. Robinson, No. 51 Exchange street. A friend suggests that it must be high ly interesting to the Republican readers of the Advertiser to «ec the editorials of that seoesh organ, the Journal of Commerce, quoted ap provingly in that paper. “Birds of a feather,” <fcc. | BY TELEGRAPH -TO TIIE EVE\I\(J PAPERS. --— From Cairo—Fight in progress at Island JSo. 10. Cairo, Oct. 24. Passengers just in from Columbus say that it is reported here that a light is in progress at Island No. 10. There are probabilities that this report is true. The steamer Emerald started for Vicksburg this afternoon with 000 prisoners to be ex changed. Preparations for an Advance—The Rebels ! Retreating—Burnside’s Command to be Ready for Forced Marches. New York, Oct. 25. The Times' Sharpsburg dispatch says that indications of a speedy movement are appar ent. Orders were issued to the various com mands last night to prepare for an advance by daylight this morning. The advauce will probably be simultaneous along the whole line. There was no movement this morning. The following is a special to a worniiig' I paper: holirar Uights Mil., Oct. 24.—Contrabands I from Stonewall Jackson's command report J that alter the utter destruction of the Balti more and Ohio Railroad west of Martinsburg, the entire rebel army commenced falling back yesterday morning; that the rebel otlieers be lieve Ia’e’s intentions to lie to winter near (lordonsville. This reported falling back is corroborated by unusually strong picketing in our front yesterday and to-day. Pleasant Valley. Oct. 24.—Orders have been issued in Gen. Burnside’s command to issue no more new clothing than the men can carry comfortably on forced marches. It is reported here that Gen. Hooker rejoius tlie army on Monday. — From Fortress Monroe Slaughter of Hebei Troops near Jackson, Miss., by a Federal Force. Fortress Monroe. Oct. 23. The Richmond Enquirer of the 20th inst. says:—We have nothing new from the army of the Potomac. The enemy’s cavalry have renewed their raids. They visited Bristow Station on the Orange and Alexandria Rail road; also Warrenton in considerable force. 1 A train laden with railroad stuff narrowly escaped being captured on Saturday at Bris tow Station. The Enquirer of the. 21st says:—The last we hear of Bragg’s army he was at Loudon, Ky., falling hack in order toward Cumberland Gap. Buell has a very large army, and at- I tempted to flank Bragg while at Camp Dirk Robinson, wliidi was prevented by this re treat. Buell is yet endeavoring to flank him, and there may be a battle any day. We have reports from Winchester that a 1 portion of our (rebel) army are advancing on 1 Charleston Vn.. w hich is occupied by the ene my in force. We scarcely think that Charles ton will be the theatre of any great hat tic. We learn from Jackson, Miss., that the bridge across tile Cypress Creek was burned , by the enemy, and our forces were not aware of its destruction till they arrived at ’.lie creek oil their retreat- They were then forced to run down the creek and cross at the mill dam, where the enemy had a commanding position. The slaughter of our (rebel) troops at this ! point was very heavy. The oversight con- i sisted in tlie neglect to destroy the railroad 1 leading from Corinth to Columbus and Cairo, which enabled tile Federals to run in recruits during the entire night previous to the retreat. Important from Arkansas — Union Victory Rebel Army Completely Routed. Washington, Oct. 25. The following was received at headquarters | to-day: St. Loui*, .Vo., Oct. 21.—Maj. Gon. Halleck, Commander in Chief U.S. Army. Wathington : Our arms are entirely successful again in northwest Arkansas. ' Gen. Schofield finding that the enemy had encainjied at Pea Ridge, sent Gen. Blunt with the first division west ward. and moved towards H.irtsville with the rest of hi.s force, Gen. Blunt, by making a hard ; night’s march, reached and attacked the reliel force at Marysville at 7 o'clock on the morning of the 22d inst. The enemy were estimated at from 5,000 to 7j0oo strong. The engagement lasted about : an Inuir. ami resulted in the total rout of the ' enemy w ith the loss of all iiis artillery, a bat tery of tt-pouinlent, a large number of horses, ami a portion of their transportation arid gar I rison equipments. Our cavalry, with light howitzers, w ere still in pursuit of their scattered forces when the | messenger left. Our loss was small, Gen. Schofield pursued Gen. Hindman bc | vond Huntsville, coming close upon him, when his forces precipitately fled beyond the Boston Mountains. All tlie organized forces of the rebels have thus been driven back to the valley of the Ar kansas River, and the army of the frontier lias gallantly and successfully accomplished its mission. (.Signed) S. R. CT ktis, Major General Commanding. Order in Relation to Enlistments. Washington, Oct. S5. Tha following Order his lieen issued by the War Department: 1st.—Enlistments Into the regular army, un der General Order Xo, 154, may be made eith er in the Held or in the several States, but not more than ten volunteers will be enlisted from any one company, 2d. — The twenty-live dollars advance of the one hundred dollars bounty authorized by Section 5th of the Act of Congress approved July 22d, 1801. and Section 5th of the Act ap proved July 2ttlh. 1801, and the two dollars premium approved June 21st, lsiig, will he paid to the volunteers enlisting into the regular ar my under this order, who have not already re ceived it. Where the recruiting officers are not furnished with funds, these amounts, or either of them, will be credited to the soldier oil the llr>t muster roll after his enlistment, and paiil by the Paymaster who pays him. The Battle at Perrysville—Severe Federal Boss. New York, Oet. 25. A special dispatch from Louisville states:— Those that have heretofore styled the battle at Perrysville a Union success, are sadly mis taken. It was a terrible and wholly fruitless waste of life and property. Official returns from all the divisions engaged show' an aggre gate lo-s of 820 killed, 2585 wounded, and nearly 500 missing and pi burners. The enemy captured eleven guns during the battle, but abandoned them in a disabled condition upon their retreat on Thursday morning, except two Napoleon guns, in place of which they left two smooth I lore six-pouiulers. After a careful investigation, I have become satisfied that tile rebel loss does not exceed two-thirds ol ours. Between 000 and 700 of their dead were buried by us, and about 1500 wounded remained in our bands. We took uo prisoners during the buttle. Prom California—The Central Pacific Hail road. Sax Fhaxcisco, Oct. 24. The markets are without change. Subscription hooks to the Central Pacific Railroad Company have heeiinpened at Sacra mento, and nearly S4Q0.IXXF was subscribed. $3,000,000 in stock was offered, which will probably lie taken and 10 percent, paid with in a short time. Our lie-t railroad men are making per>i-tent ettbrts to organize a com pany with sufficient capital and enterprise to insure the early building of the road as far east as Washoe, which would pay well for local uses, and is indispensable to an extensive development ol the vast mineral resources of Nevada territory. Humors of Army Changes Repeated. New York, Oct. 25. Tlie Herald edltoriallv savs that they have good authority from Washington lor stating that Gen. Met Icllan is to he Ge eral-in-t iiief, thill Gen. Halicck is to resume the command of the Western Department, and Gen. Hooker | the command of the Army of the Potomac. -' Oil the 1-t of August last, John A. 1 Freeman, aged about 13. a son of A. N. Free man, of South Orriiigton, left home and has not since been heard from, llis friends will be grateful for any information relative to him. It is stated that the Governor of Ohio ha- suspended the w rit of habeas corpus in re gard to drafted aliens in the camps of that '■ State. riT ‘ Rev. C. F. Penney, a graduate of Bow doin College, w ill he installed pastor ol the Free Will Baptist Church in Augusta, Oct. 30th. BY TELEGRAPH. TO THE Portland Daily Press. FROM WASHINGTON. The Enemy around Warrenton. THE PUBLIC DEBT. Court oF Inquiry on the Conduct or Gen. McDowell. The Army to Advance immediately. From New Grenada. Washington. Oct. 2.j. The Star says we have very late information from the region of country between the lines of Gen. Sigel's army corps and Gordonsville. Three days ago the only reliel troops occupy ing it was a regiment of North Carolina cav alry and one regiment of infantry. They had their headquarters at Warrenton^wilh pickets out along the Rappahannock. At times they sent out small scouting parties in various di rections. Culpepper Court House had then ceased to be the railroad terminus at which supplies from Uiehmoud for Gen. Lee's army were put on wagons. They are now taken to Staunton by rail, and wagoned from there all tlie way up to Winchester. This change was doubtless occasioned by the dread lest Gen. Sigel might cut off their trains, which lie could do if they continued to travel the road from Culpepper Court House via. Sperryville and Winchester, now that his cavalry horses have been recruited. Washington, Oet. 20. The Secretary of the Treasury will shortly discontinue the receipt of deposits of gold. It is ascertained that he will not, as lias been proposed, offer the live twenties at any dis count from tlie market rates, or in other words, to market competition, but will en deavor to expedite tbeir conversion as soon as possible. I he representation made in some quarters that the public debt has reached two thousand million dollars, is a gross exaggeration. On the first day of the present month it was only six hundred and twenty millions, and is now less than six hundred and sixty millions. This amount includes the entire circulation and ev ery species of notes, and between seventy and eighty million debt of the last administration, but excepts claims for which no requisitions have yet been made, but which adjusted and unadjusted cannot exceed twenty million dol lars. Lieut. Com. McCann has been detached from the Maratanzas and ordered to the com mand of the Hunchback; Acting Lieut. Cal houn has been detached from the Hunchback and ordered to the command of the Sadonia; Lieut. Com. C. S. Norton has been ordered to the Maratanzas; Acting Master W. G. Salton stall has been ordered to the command of the steamer Commodore Hill; Acting Master Na than Lewis has been ordered to the steamer Vanderbilt. At the request of Maj. Gen. McDowell, a court of inquiry, consisting of Geos. Hunter, Cadwallader anil Garfield, will meet in this city to-morrow, to investigate the military conduct of that officer, according to an order ju»t issued from the War Department. Troops in active campaign must he prepared to bivouac on tbe march, the allowance of tents being limited. Hospital tents being for the sick and wounded, must not lie diverted from their proper use. The indications in all quarters are such as to give assurance that both the army and the navy will not much longer remain inactive, but w ill commence a plan of operations prom ising the accomplishment of the most impor tant results. The preparations for this pur pose are nearly complete, and to such an ex tent as to preclude the probability of failing, and to answer all demands from public and private sources for a more vigorous prosecu tion of tlie war, with a view to the prompt suppression of the rebellion. The appointment of Gen. Rosecranz to the command of which Gen. Uuell has just been relieved, is owing to the vigor but recently so conspicuously displayed by him, and as a com pliment to his fine qualities as a soldier. Equal energy and ability will be required of all in trusted with similar important duties, ami there is also authority for stating that the Ad ministration is determined that further injuri ous delay shall no longer be a subject of gen eral complaint- The programme, of course, includes an early movement of the army of the Potomac. With the news of the complete triumph of the Liberals in the United States of Columbia, late New Grenada, comes also the information through distant official sources that Gener al Mosqueras Government has been recognized and its Ministers and Consuls received by the governments of Peru, Chili, Bolivia. Ecua dor, Costa Rica and Mexico. The Ministers of France and Great Britain have been re ceived by Mosquera’s Goveumeut, but Mr. Buxton, the Minister of the United States, has not been recognized, because Messrs. Paraga and Merrill, the representatives of Columbia, who arc now in New York, have not yet been received by our government. There have been several reconnoisances dur ing the past week on the southern side of the Potomac, and much valuable information ob tained concerning the pos.tion of the enemy. Our troops had occasional skirmishes, and both sides lost a few men in killed, wounded and prisoners. A scouting party, who returned to Sigel's headquarters last night, reports that the rebel Gen. Mumlord, with a force of 1500 men, was at Purcillville, about twelve miles west of Leesburg, on the road to Sniker's Gap. A large patrol of the enemy is at Leesburg, Mid dlebury and Waterford. The regulations for procuring tax stamps subject the people on the Pacific coast to in convenience and delay, owing to the distance from Washington and remittances being re quired lor their purchase. A telegram of more than IKK) words has been received at the Treas ury Department upon this subject from gov ernment officers in Sail Francisco, and in which, as a remedy, the request is made that an agency for the sale of stamps be established in that city. Satisfactory arrangements will doubtless be made. — Pursuit of IMtcN. Capture of Five Federal Officers. Lebanon, Mo., Oct. 25. A party of rebels, supposed to be 150 strong, crossed the Springfield road thirty miles west i)f this place yesterday afternoon. Informa tion Wits received from Dallas County at the ; same time that a rebel force was going south, j and were about twenty miles west. Major 11. I aid well started on the Springfield road in pursuit, with 120 men. At midnight informa tion was received that the rebel party*were four miles to the west of the road at sunset, and numbered about 5,000, only half of them armed. Maj. Caldwell was reinforced by 1,000 men this morning. Nothing has been heard nf the rebels or those in pursuit of them since. The rebels fell in with the mail coa^h at the road crossing, capturing live passengers, all United States officers, the horses, the mails and the driver. The Meeting of Governors. Indianapolis, Oct. 25. It Is believed here that the New York Her ald’s statement that the Governors ol the loyal i Slates will assemble at Washington next week to dictate a policy to the government in refer- j Jnce to any movements, is a canard. Gov. I Morton is ignorant of such an arrangement. (Jovs. Yates and Morton went to Louisviile a few days ago, on business connected with the troops of their respective States. Gov. Yates returned to Springfield to-day. Contrabands at Cairo. Cairo, Oct. 25. The contrabands here number from 800 to 1000, and are in a most miserable condition, ' suffering intensely for want of necessary j clothing ami bedding. Two are leported by ; the physicians to have died last night from want and exposure. Nearly all are women *nd children, and large numbers of them are ; sick. Boiler Explosion and Loss of Life. Rumored Proposals of Peace bj the Rebels. TIIE REBELS RETREATING. New York. Oct. 28. The locomotive No. 184 exploded at tie Erie Railway Station, in Jersey City, la night, and was completely destroyed. Soun of the pieces were thrown 150 teet. A trui of platform ears standing near were much damaged. Win. Root, engineer, Alfred Brad bury, fireman, Patrick Minscol of Binghamton Martin Bennett, brakeman, and another man oil man on the train, were killed. Two o them were terribly mutilated. Henry Hunter, conducter, and Charles Ball, a boy employed in the shop, were injured, but not seriously. It proves that the steamer Blanche, destroy ed on the Cuban coa-t, was a confederate steamer, which Gen. l’usk nominally sold to an English house. Tlie Herald has another Cincinnati dispach, stilting that tile Governors of Iowa. Michigan, Illinois and Indiana are on their way to Wash ington to attend a gubernatorial conference.— They will probably remain over Sunday at Harrisburg, and thence proceed to Washing ton with Gov. Curtin. The dispatch says, in addition to the propositions to he submitted to the convention demanding a change in the command of the eastern and western armies in the Held, a vigorous prosecution ol the war and change in the treatment of rebels, I have it that propositions have been received in Washington from leading Southern men, sug gesting the holding of a national convention, at which representatives from all parts of the Union shall attend, to consider tile feasibility of settling the present difficulty. It is under j stood that the South proposes as a basis of set tlement : 1st, That the North shall recognize the State rights doctrine of secession, which they claim is to be found in the resolution ol '98 and '99, written by Jefferson and Madison. 2d, That the North shall return fugitives from labor or pay their value to their owners. It i- also understood that they will accept the Crittenden compromise as a basis of settlement relating to slavery in the territories. If the Governors do not sanction the holding of such a convention, then they are to unite in de manding ol the President a vigorous prosecu tion of the war. inne was a violent snow sionu in l.lllCin nati on Saturday night. The Herald's Harper's Ferry dispatch of to day says tlie rebel pickets have disappeared from our front. Evidences that the enemy are moving towards Gordonsville multiply.— For four days large wagon trains have been leaving Winchester, apil a large camp lias been established at Front Royal. Col. Lee of the 20t!i Mass, regiment, is dangerously ill here. The Times’ special dispatch says it is gen erally believed that the rebels are rapidly re treating southward. Their pickets have dis appeared, and they evacuated Martiusburg af ter destroying all the railroad property. The Times’ special dispatch from Fairfax Court House last night, says that ( apt. Rock nay just, returned from a reconnoisaiicu to Leesburg, reports the reliel General Mumford at Purcellville, with 1500 men and some artil lery. Maj. Stedman, Just returned from Thoroughfare Gap, reports a small rebel force at New Baltimore and the railroad in good | running order to Front Royal. The enemy are actively reconnoitering. It is creditably reported that they have 2'Kr.j cavalry, some in fantry and artillery at Warrenton. No rein foi cements have been sent from theiice to Winchester. From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, Oct. 24. The John A. Warner left here last evening with a flag of truce for Aiken’s Landing. She was expected to remain until the steamboat Express arrived with some 300 Conlederate prisoners from Washington for Richmond.— Owing to some misumliT'tanding, the Express arrived at 12 M. to-day without the Confeder ate prisoners, but laden with grain and meal. The Warner will be due here tomorrow from Aiken’s Landing, and is expected to bring down several hundred paroled prisoners. The army and navy seem to be at war with each other, and where the army are now tear ing down the Hvgerla building, the navy are reconstructing them on the same ground. Disaster to a Portland Vessel and Loss of Life. New Bedford, Mass., Oct. 2d. The bark Mary Ann, which arrived to day from tile Pacific, reports October 16th, in lat. 32 42 N., ion. (it> 1U W., fell in with and board ed the schooner Alliert Treat, eleven days from Portland, bound to Porto Rico, with the. mate, steward and two seamen on board, who reported that on the 14th the schooner was thrown on her beam ends in a heavy gale, and William Whitney, captain, Mr. Fogg, second mate, and G. II. Tolley, seaman, lost. The vessel sutlored considerable damage, but was perfectly tight, and would probably return home. Dispersion of Guerillas. Louisville, Oct. 25. A detachment sent out by Col. Bruce from Bowling Given,attacked John Morgan’s guer illas at Morgantown yesterday, capturing fif teen prisoners, whereupon they retreated to Newark, where they were joined by the guer illas under Woodward and Johnson. Col. Shackleford, with a force from Hender son, had a light with another band of Mor gan's guerillas and captured fifty-seven of them. Nothing further has been heard from the forces under the Gens. Buell and Bragg. Gen. Bosseau arrived here yesterday. Movement of Troops. New Yokk, Oct. 25. The 20th Maine regiment arrived here this morning on the steamer! ,’ity of Boston. They were supplied with a bountiful hot breakfast at Jersey City by Col. Howe, and left soon alter for Washington. Pennsylvania Election. PliII.AItKI.PIIIA, Oct. 25.
