C. Maiming, Sergeant Major of the 1st Massachusetts Regiment, by the members of the church. The presentation address was made by Rev.

Mr. Manning has distinguished himself oil the field of battle, and has been badly wound ed in the hip. He hopes soon to lie able to rejoiu his regiment Spilling Molasses.—Yesterday afternoon Mr. Mains, of Otisfield, stopped his two horse team, on which was a hogshead of molasses, in front of the Court House, and stepped in to the building for a moment During his ab sence the horses started and run down Chest nut street, coining In contact with a tree in the sidewalk, I'roat of the house of Benj.

We have no desire to exalt our own gallant troops of the “Pine Tree State" at the expense of those from any other Stale. In ail article published in our columns a few weeks siuce, entitled “Gallantry of Maine Regiments,” re flections were cast upon the Pennsylvania 99th and the New York 40th, which are bri galled with the Maine 3d and 4th. We gave the facts as they were communicated to us by a member of the Maine 3d. We have received a letter from CoL II. G. Staples, of the 3d Maiue, hut who is acting commander of the brigade, calling our attention to the “imputa tions cast upon the regiments of the brigade from other States,” in which he says: “As the best of feeling exists throughout the brigade, between regiments from our own and other Slates, 1 cannot think any person would write a base falsehood through malice, but ignorauce of the facts. I hope in justice to regiments with whom we have fought side by side lor many months, and between whom the best of feeling exists, you will correct the statement. We consider ourselves apt schol ars, but the word ruse was uever taught us by OUr GALLANT KEARNEY.” Encouraging the Kkbkls.—Senator Wil son in an able speech made by him last week at Cambridgeport thus shows the President’s opinion of the effect of those democrats who at the North are lending aid and comfort to the rebels. Senator Wilson said: “The other day I called upon the President with an earnest Douglas Democrat of Massa chusetts. The news had just come lo the President ot these defeats of his supporters in those States, and the President seemed bowed down, as I liave seen him bowed down when intelligence of the defeat of our armies in the field eauie upon hiui, and lie said: “I confess that I urn grieved at the results of these elec tions. This intelligence will go to Europe: it will go into the land of rebellion, and will en courage the leading rebels and nerve the arms of the rebel soldiers fighting our men in the fieliL It is H ue,” said the President, “many of these men elected profess to he war Demo crats; but file resolutions of their conventions, the tone ot their leading presses, and their general action, will lie construed everywhere against the cause of our country.” That Douglass Democrat came away from the in terview with the resolution that he would give his vote in Massachusetts, this autumn, to the cause of his country.

The Washington Star says: Last night the advance of the army of the Potomac, under Gens. Burnside, Fitz John Porter and others, doubtless bivouacked upon the line of the A l exandria and Winchester turnpipe from Up persville, threoniiles in front or below Ashby’s Gap, down to Middlebury, a distance of ten miles. Tbe forces under Gen. Sigel, which took up the line of inarch early yesterday, must have advanced upon the line of the railroad to Thoroughfare Gap ere nightlall.if not beyond that point, while another division of the army immediately in front of Washington, under Gen. Siekles, at the same time was doubtless advancing in the rear of Gen. Sigel, and at night within supporting distance of him. The mareh of Gen. Sickles’ division yester day and before almost to the extreme front, was capitally performed, and reflects great credit. Without fatiguing themselves with a forced march, they accomplished fourteen inihji a day, arriving at their temporary desti liatwn in perfect order, with everything in time, and are already actively engaged in per forming the particular service they were evi dently sent forward to accomplish. Position of Troops.—Federal oocupaton of Thorougefare Gup. New York, Nov. 4. A Gentreville dispatch, dated on the morn ing of the 3d, says Gen. Sickles, with Patter son's brigade, has driven the rebels from Ma nassas and Bull Kun below Bristow Station, and would probably encamp near Warrenton Junction last night. The railroad to Alexan dria lias been prepared, and cars now run as usual to Ceutrevllie. The whole re lie 1 strength between Gordonsville and Winchester and Warrenton, does not amount to 100,000, in cluding conscripts and all. They are sweep ing ail the cattle, provisions, &c., htdore them. A special dispatch to the Philadelphia En quirer of yesterday, says Gen. Sigel occupied Thoroughfare Gap without a light, to-day.— There has been no battle, but continual skir mishing w ith Stuart's cavalry,and small losses on both sides. Reeonnoiaance by Gen. McClellan. New York, Nov. 4. A dispatch from headquarters to the Her ald. dated Wheatland, even.mi of tbe gil. run tains the following: Gen. McClellan reconnoitcred tile enemy from the front this afternoon. Gen. Pleasanton's cavalry, supported by a brigade of Doubleday’s, drove the enemy from their position, contesting the ground with con siderable spirit. Cannonading is now going on. The troops are in excellent condition and eager for battle. A general engagement is expected to-morrow, 3d inst. . Federal Occupation of Upperavtlle. Headquarters Army of Potomac, I Broomlleld, Va., Nov. 3d, 1802. j The advance of the Army of the Potomac up the valley on the leftside of the Blue Ridge, is being pushed forward with all dispatch.— Gen. Pleasonton occupied Up|>orsville this af ternoon alter a spirited engagement with the enemy for about four hours. We bad one killed and several wounded. The rebels left three of their dead on the field. Upporsville is four miles from Ashby’s Gap, which the rebels are endeavoring to hold.— Our troops now hold all the Gaps up to Ash by’s, with every prospect of having that to morrow. Federal Occupation of Snicker’s Gap. New York, Nov. 4. Tlie Times lias the following: Snicker's Gap, Oct. 3.—Snicker’s Gap was occupied by our forces yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Hancock’s entire division holding it until night, when Syke’s division took its place. The rebels were evidently foiled in intend ing to hold Snicker’s Gap and Ashby’s Gap, and give us luittle. They were marching upon the other side to take it when we entered.— We threw shell among their forces, w ho wheel ed and retreated on double quick. Hebei Reinforcements—From Island No. 10 Capture of Mobile. Advices from Holly Springs to Wednesday,' say that large reinforcements from Louisiana are pouring in. The Federal forces at Island No. 10 have again occupied the Tennessee shore, and are now engaged in constructing a fort under the protection of the Federal gunboats. A disdalcli from Jackson,Teun., 2d, says:— Tile news received at Grant’s headquarters yesterday, from the South, via Ricuzi,couth tus the capture of Mobile. From New Orleans. New York, Nov. 4. The steamer Catawba, from New Orleans 28th ult., lias arrived with twenty-four sick soldiers. The following died on the passage: Stephen Drew, 1st Maine; Charles T. Smart, R. R. Moulton, and Abel Kineard, 14th Maine. Seventy-three Union refugees arrived at New Orleans on the 27th tilt., from Texas, to join the Union army, to return and tight for their homes, Irom whence they have been driv en by the rebels. From California. San Francisco, Nov. 3. Steam navigation between the western ports of Mexico and San Francisco, is about to re commence. The steamer Oregon is advertised to make monthly trips. Business is quiet. Faucitile lianch, on which is situated Lime Point—which the government once nearly purchased for $200,000 as a site for a fort—is ottered at sheriff's sale on the 27lli inst., to pay off' a mortgage of $40,000. The Shepherd's Dog mid Child. One day a shepherd, on going to his flock which were feeding oil the higher parts of the Grampian mountains, took his little boy witli him as well us his dog. The child w as only three years old. The father left him aloi.e while he looked alter some stray sheep, when suddenly a thick mist cuuie on. The lather hastened back to lind the child, but it was so dark that he could not see him, and uiifurtii uately he missed his way. Alter a search of many hours among the caverns and holes in the mountains, he was at length overtaken by night. Still wandering on, he discovered by the light of the moon that iie had reached the bottom of the valley, and was within a short distance of his cottage. He hoped that the child had gone home, but w hen he inquired he found his wile had uot seen him. To renew the search that night was equally fruitless aud dangerous. He wits therefore obliged to remain where he was, having lost both liis child and his dog, which had attend ed him faithfully for many years. Next morn ing by daybreak the shepherd, accompanied by a baud of iiis neighbors, set out iu search of his child, but, after a day spent in fruitless fatigue, they were at last compelled, by the approach of night, to descend from the moun tain. On returning to his cottage the shep herd found that the dog, which he had lost the day before, had been home, and on receiving a piece of cake had instantly gone oil'again. For several days the shepherd renew ed the search for his child, aud still, on returning at evening disappointed to his cottage, lie lound that the dog had been home, and on receiving his usiiul allowance of cake, hi d instantly dis appeared. Struck w ith this singular circum stance, he remained at home one day, and when his dog, as usual, departed with his piece ol cake, lie resolved to loiiow him and find out the cause of this strange conduct. The dog led the way to a waterfall, at some distance from tlie spot where the shepherd had left the child. The shepherd, stepping from crag to crag, crossed the routing stream. The dog at last disappeared into a cave, the mouth of which w as almost level with the torrent. The shepherd with iliftieiiity followed: lint, on en tering the cave, what were his emotions w hen lie beheld his little boy eating with much satis faction the cake which the dog had just bi ought him. w hile the laithftil animal stood by watch ing his young master with love aud pleasure in his looks! From tlie situation in which the child was found, it appears that he had wandered to tlie brink of tlie precipice, and then cither fallen or scrambled down till he reached the cave, wli'cb tlie dread of the torrent had afterward prevented him from quitting. The dog, by means of his scent, had traced him to the spot and afterward prevented him from starving by giving up to him his own daily allowance. He appears never to have quitted tlie child by night or day, except when it was necessary to go for his IiskI, and then lie was always seen running at full speed to aud from the cottage.
