ports that on the 7th of October, at 3 o'clock in |
the morning, tbo eapture was uiado without lots
of life, whilst the captain of the Florida, four
other officers and a number of the crew were on :
shore. Twelve officers and fifty-eight men were
taken prisoners with the Florida. Some of the f
„ prisoners arrived at Boston on Tuesday onboard
th“ steamer Ke.arsarge.
The light in front of the Second Corps rf the
Army of the Potomac, on Inst Saturday night, is
represented to have been of a more serious char
acter than was at first report, d. From the Array
correspondent of the Associated Press a few ad
dkiomtl details of it have beep received The
attack was made by the enemy for Hie purpose
of trtrenglbciiingjheic lines by gaining posses-
Bti‘o of some of ground held by the Union troops.
They did succeed at first !u carrying the line I
held by two regiments,of (.leu. Grant's atmy, ;
taking a few prisoner*. Tho Union forces wore
soon reinforced.,and quitenn engagement.ensued, j
resulting in the repulse of llie enemy. Tlte |
Union forers regained the works they laid 10.-t, !
atid captured 41 prisoners. Tito lolal loss of the i
paemy is put down at 100, and that of the Union
army at 30, a few of whom are prisoners.
Information from the Array of the Potomac up
to Tuesday morning, was brought to WasTring
tou Wednesday, by lire arrival of The mail boat ;
front City Point. All was reported to he quiet ;
tvi til the exception of sonic filing by the sharp- ,
shooters in front of Port Hell. The roods arc .
represented to he in a had condition on account
of the heavy rains for the past foyv days. There 1
were indications, il is staled, that General Lee
, was meditating an attack upon some point of the j
Union line,
■ r.eports are said to have been brought by officers
from Chattanooga of Gen. Sherman having bum- i
od Atlanta, Georgia, and destroyed the railroad
from Chattanooga to Atlanta, removing the iron i
to the former place—and that Gen. Sherman was
marching towards Charleston, S. C. A telegram
from Washington says that the story- was not he- |
lieved in military circles there, but intimates j
that a movement was going on of which the pros
pect of success was encouraging. Central Sher
man’s supplies, it states, are ample and in no
danger of interruption.
The steamer Arrago arrived at New Votk yes
terday from Hilton Head, and reports that on
last Monday a steamer, supposed to he tho Tulin--
hassce, wasssen making towards land, pursued
by the United Slates steamer Huntsville and the
gunboat Banshee. The Arago hi ought a copy of |
the Palmetto Herald of ti c 3d, which contains an
account of a Union cavalry expedition sent out
on the 31 st ul t. from .Magnolia, Florida. The!
Union troops succeeded iu capturing two linn- j
dred cattle, hut on returning were defeated with- ;
in ten miles of camp, with a loss of two killed,
five wounded and twenty-seven prisoners.

year 1802 served to augment. Appear- j;

1 fears were not realized. The weather

j eases of the disease. The'lateness of the
I season ruudei jit highly imp rubablu it will !
become epidemic, and the physicians are ,
of opinion it has already had its day *—
There hat o been ten deaths already re-j
ported, anil two cases mentioned this arorn

those cases were all contracted during the |
warm weather two weeks ago; for black
I focts are fatal to the disease, and we have i

ed by the papers, but here little about it

; no fears arc expressed as to the result of j

lime tiro N irthern papers have been loud
in their demands for the closure of the
port of Wilmington, which now appears to ;
I I hern the rendezvous of a dozen Tullahus
sees, about to make a raid upon the ocean, |
and, to n o their own words, “a nest of 1
i pirates," ready to swoop down upon Yau- |
kec commerce. Especially along the j
coast, whole the maritime and fishing in
terests are at stake, nnd'in the seaport ci
iies of commercial importance, the people g
1 are clamorous for a speedy attack ; ami it I
! is not impossible their importunities may
j he the means of bringing an iron-clad fleet
| against our forts, under the redoubtable I
Farragi.it or Porter.
lleiuined officers, it is said, report a
I very large fleet gathering in Hampton
- Hoads for the avowed purpose of getting ,
command of Wilmington harbor; but it
is difficult to conjecture what they hope to j
i.ccoin; lis.tr without the aid of a land force.
Then the question arises, from whence can
! this force be obtained? It would seem.!
by his repeated call for more troops, that ;
Giant would nut be likely to spare any ol
his veterans ; Sheridan has all pc can at
tend to in the valley; Sherman seerns„fo
he sufficiently amused in North Georgia, i
and the Yankee forces in the West quite !
inadequate to take care of General Price.
There remain the n clubs, it is true ; but |
1 they cun scarcely bo made iffcetivc lor 1
Ithis attack, even if Farragut should have
1 the teuic city to make the attempt. Cur
n nt r-p> it, however, points out ibis place
as lire destination ot the iron clad fleet
now assembling ; and, until it can bedeli
nitely determined, wo must make prepara
tions lo meet it.
Tire position of the Cape Fiar defences j
1 renders them strong against air attack by
sea, owing to their proximity to the cl an-;
; nel through which vessels must pass, to
Unter the mouth ol the river. It is about
thirty miles from tho town of Wilmington
to the sea, the river navigable for large;
steamers, running through a level, marshy
country, well wooded on either shore
Some eight miles below tire town is the
1 first bar, and beyond this the stream is I
| clear and deep until tho “Hip” is reached. |
A long, low, narrow island stretches di-,
■ rcctly across the mouth of the river, leav
ing only two narrow inlets at cither end
or the waters to join each other These |
arc here denominated Eastern and West
cm bar, or Old and Now Inlet. Before
the war the Western bar was alone usid
by vessels of any size, and the United t
j Slates Government made an effort to close
j the New inlet entirely, in order to force a |
iaiger volume of water through tire other,
i to render it deeper, and capable ol" taking
j over the bar vessels of greater size and!
i draught. Many years .was this work on
hand, and many thousands were spent in !
• hauling stones to throw into the channel,:
oat one of which has ever been heard of!
S since, it was a lulilc task, The chan-j
! nel deepened, if anything, and the project j
was abandoned. This inlet is now consid*
1 cred the better of tho two by blockade
1 rnfirci's, although a majority of steamers
going to Nassau go out the Western bar. i
Along the whole extent of the North ;
Carolina,coast the bays, inlets and harbors i
are constantly changing, the sands shift-; i
ting from place to place, tilling up an ■
entrance here and deepening airutlur ,
there. Above Hutteras swash there is 1
not an inlet at the presi nt time at all navi
gable, while no longer than twenty years :
ago there were throe or four. At this .
place there is tho tame change constantly i
, going on—the channel moving about from
place to place, and the “Hip,” filling in '
,or deepening with astonishing rapidity, — 1
At the- eastern bar the channel runs with
iin fifty or sixty yards of the shore and I
J close under the guns id' Fort Fisher and;
; Fort Lamb, while at the Western bar j t
i Fort Caswell guards it equally well. He- |1
! sides these main defences arc sevtral mi- <
j nor batteries, strung along the beach, lo- { I
euted at points that, to an engineer’s eye, | -
seemed to bear most upon lire track ol i
vessels coming into tiro river. There is, ! I
also, close by Fort Fisher and on a point 1
of End between tho “Hip” and the!'
bar, a large earthwork or mould, oreetc 1;
’by Colonel Limb (Commander of the <
forts), which mounts some powerful guns, i
For several mouihs past this has been a I
I terror to tho fleet outside, and has very I
properly kept them at a respectful dis- i
tanee. Those guns have a plung ng lire -t
, upon the ehaum-t from ike “Rip’’ to the 1
bur u yond : so it wdl he extremely diffi- i
uult for oven an Iron-clad to enter tin- 1 i
• harbor until these guns arc silenced. — c

w=-. ! -j ! 1
middle of ihe channel, is the wreck of the
iron-clad Jlabigh, which was lost by a
sudden cbuuge in tire moving sandy bot

act lino passed the evening previous in
safety. By this il will be seen the chan
nel is difficult, ev‘,n with skillful pilots;
ilint it isia.-dy defensible, and that the
proper defences have been reeled. These
seem quite adequate, and, I mu fully of
opinion, able to resist any fleet the enemy
can now biiog against them.
But an attack by water may rot be ex
pected afore, fur tiro fleet will undoubt
edly co-opcrato with some kind of laud
force, and we have U) look also to tho land
side of the works. Here, too, 1 believe,

The Crops for the Year 1864.
The final report (September and Octo
ber) of the crops for the present year has
i just been made by the Agricultural Do
! part men t at Washington. The returns
are now full, and what was hitherto but es
timate assume the character of ascertain
!ed quantities. Tho wheat crop amounts
to 160,695,823 i-ushels. It takes about
i five bushels of wheat to make a barrel of
flour, which would make the production
, equal to thirty-three millionsand a half bar
icls, or more than one and a half barrels
: to every one of the population of twenty
millions whose industry produced it. The
j production of wheat is only about nine
millions loss than in 1863, which was con
j sidored an excellent crop. The rye pro
i duet ion was 19,872.957 bu.-iiels, or loss
than one million short el the production of
the piovious year Bailey 10,716,328,
| about, the sumo deciease as rye in the
year’s production. Oats 176.690,064
bushels, an increase of six millions over
I the previous y ear. Huy is 18,116,751
1 t-rns, or about a million and a half tons
less than in 1863. Corn 530,581,403
hut In Is, or about seventy-eight millions
incicuso over the year preceding.—
; Buckwheat 18,700,540 bushels, an in
crease of nearly thiec millions. Potatoes
06 256,888, a decrease of f ur millions.
Taking the yearly production, there-
I fore, the balance is in favor of 1864, and
the quality is much bet er. If the cur
' renoy and taxes did nut affect prices, all
the leading articles of provisions which
; form the support, of life would he less in
price. The sorghum, another valuable
crop, shows a large increase. In tlie nro
tinotion of animal food there is, however,
a material falling off in nearly all the
Stales. The production of llax seed shows
-a very large increase, New Jersey and
! Pennsylvania taking the lead in this in
i crease; in the first amounting to over 14
per cent., and in Pennsylvania fur per
cent. Ten of ihe loyal Slni.s produce
I cotton. The falling off in tobacco is set
down at sixty-seven millions of pounds.—
Balancing ail the increase and decrease of
vegetable and aniitial production, and
. there is shown lo be abundance of fod
for the population. The surprising pait
lofit is that th production should be so
largo with so many men engaged in war,
and su much destruction of animal life for
war purposta. The use of machinery in
farming has made up for (he absence of
hands. Hi realtor, when peace is t .’-es
tablished, its good be bit iu
highly increased crops— Philo. Liile/er.
Heavy Bank Defalcation in New
York.. —Mr. Charles Windsor, for the
last fourteen years paying teller of tho
Mercantile Hank, No. 191 Broadway, dis
appeared ftom his post on Saturday last,
and has not since been heard from. On
examining his cash account it was discov
ered that he w.ts a defaulter to the amount
of $207,000 in currency and 834,C00 in
geid. The bank offers a reward of $5,-
000 for his arrest and delivery to the au
thorities, and §15,000 for the recovery of
tho stolen money . Windsor, it appears, en
joyed a good reputation, and was consider
ed by his numerous friends as strictly
Irustwonliy in every respect. He lived
on Staton Island, drove fast horses, and
was engaged in speculation, while hi* wife
was reported to be be in possession of a
handsome fortune in lur own right.
it is understood that Windsor ha, gone
to Europe. The police ate working up
tho case, and will do what they can to se
cure tho missing funds. Meanwhile the
business of the batik is not interrupted.
It has, as appears in the official notice, a
consider!ole surplus, notwithstanding the
loss it has sustained.— N. I”. Post.

A Substitute Swallows Four Hundred i
Some of the ’most artful and desperate !
men known in the list of criminals of this I
and other countries are now engaged in the !
dangerous but lucrative occupation of i
“bounty-jumping” in this country, and !
some ol the worst of those characters have,'
iu the course of their eventful career etmie I
under the jurisdiction of Provost M-rdml !
Blumcnburg. Om of these cases was be
lorc him a few days ago, in tho person of
lone Charles Wright, who represents him
se If a t Janadiaii, and who'became a subsli- |
lute fur a drafted man of this city. In i
order to insure the safe delivery of substi-!
tntes at the general rendezvous, without!
the necessity of furnishing a strong escort, I
the plan has been adopted of taking from I
them tho principal portion of the momy
i found upon them, and sending it to the !
rendezvous to bo returned lo thorn upon 1
their arrival at that point. Tho man in
question, after eating his dinner at the of
, lice of Captian Htumenburg, was requested
jto hand over his money for the purpose
i above mentioned, lie replied that ho had
but about Cfiy dollars with him, which
j statement, however, Capt. Lee, Deputy J
Provost Marshal, was unwilling to accept,!
in consequence of information iu his pus- \
I session to the contrary. After a thorough
(search of the person of Wright, it was de-!
1 cided that ho must have swallowed some I
money, and an emetic was procured and
| udirini-tered to him, but without effect. 1
A second was then given, and in a short,
time Wright was seized with vomiting and 1
j threw up a one hundred dollar note of j
the Chesapeake Back of this city. Ini
a brief space ho l threw up a secoud, a third j
and a fourth. He then confessed that he j
: had swallov. cd each note separately, while \
eating his dinner, by placing them in pie- |
ees of t mato. The money is now iu thul
custody of the Provost Marshal, as well as i
Wright, and, unless it should be positive
i ly ascertained, as it is believed, that he is
I a “bounty-jumper,” it will be returned to
1 him upon iris arrival at the general ren
dezvous for druft.d nun and substitutes.
Death of Six Miners, and Injury
: of Several Others. — A terrible acci
dent happened on Friday of last week at
the red-ash c, llieiy of George IL Potts
& Co., near Minersville, Pa., which re
sulted in the d< ath of six miners and in
jury of several others who attempted to
rescue them. It seems that on Wed ties
| day afternoon tho miners made a blast in
i one of the breasts, lo cause a fail of coal.
| The lire, by some means, communicated
j (0 the combustible matter in tho mine.
|On Friday six miners, named Thomas
! Richards and David Williams, Welshmen;
! Jos. Barman, a German, and Robert Duf
j fy, Michael Finney and Michael Scully,
Irishmen, went into tho mine to clear
j away Ihw* rubbish. Their prolonged ah
| settee created alarm and fear that something
hud happened to them, and other minors
st-nl iu to sec what was the matter, were j
prostrated by the noxious gas that tilled \
the place, and were with difficulty drag-!
ged alive from the mine. Finally, on
Saturday morning, the dead bodies of the |
the six men named above were found and .
| taken from the mine.

Dreadful Accident at Pilot

and then found in the-vicinity of the fort j

of four children, one of whom attempted :
to extract the fuse by driving it out with j

Circassia and Russia.
| Tho following communication from
j Trehizoml, in the JUutritrur , shows that
, Circassia is not yet entirely subjugated bv
the Russians, notwithalanding the stnte
; inents recently made:
| ‘‘The Circassian tribe which has taken
. refuge in a high mountain behind Goitaia
still holds mu in its resistance against
Russia. The number of families which
have retreated there is estimated at 500.
Encounters take place constantly, and al
though the besiegers consist of P,OOO men,
the Russians have, so (hr, always been de
j leated. A serious attack was made rc
j cently when the Circassians resisted with
1 such energy that 20(1 of the enemy, in
| eluding a colonel, a major, and several
| "liter officers, were killed and wounded,
j To resist the besiegers, the Circassians
| erect with much skill immense' piles of
! stones of a large size, and, when the attack
is made, by removing one of them, which
forms a sort <-f key-stone, the rest roll
down into the ravine, crushing every thing
before them. The mountaineers will re
sist so long as (heir provisions hold out, tm
j less the Russians succeed in turning'llteir
I strong positions.
, The emigration continues and the efunffry
| is being continually traversed by the hands
lof people removing. About 15,003 per
i sons of the Naloukhaich tribe are expeo
l ted at Novrosisk shortly, where 10 sailing
. vessels, under the Ottoman (lag, are wait
|ing to embark them on their arrival. The
| chief ol that important tribe, a rich and
I important personage, who pos-esses con
! siderable forests and immense (locks, has
(already left Novrosisk with 4.00 D of his
: people. The Russian Government bail

land to him was paid the greatest attention
1 Agricultural Education. —A short
j time since, a full discussion of the subject
! of agricultural education took place befoie
the Council of the Royal Agtipnltuiiil So
ciety of Great Britain, in which one of the
speakers. Dr. Vceckler, took ground a
gahm the connection of fauns with agri
cultural schools. He said;
"It was the great rock upon which
many establishments had split. He was
convinced that the practical education,
which was ghon on the farm to the tenant
fanner’s sons, was much better acquired
at home than upon u farm attached to a
school. The farm, moreover, was an ex
pense which fell heavily upon schools,
and without it, he believed, with some lit
tle care, schools could be made sell-sup
porting. * v * * VVhut
was needed was a good education in the
elements of natural science; and in its
chiel brunches it should be provided in
these schools. This would be a very
'useful addition to the general plan of in
struction; but anything like providing the
means of giving what was usually culled
practical instruction on the farm, he was
convinced would, in the end, turn out 11
failure, and entail'a great expenditure of
1 money upon the man-gers ol the instilu
! lion.”
The above views may be true with re
: gard to England, and yet not at ail applica
ble to this country. They may, neyn
theless, be worthy of consideration even
