The battle at Corinth was evidently a very desperate one, and the low was heavy. The rebels with double our num bers attacked our troops in their strong entrenchments, made an entrance at one point and reached to the very centre of the town through a storm of ballets, and were then met and driven back at the point of the bayonet. Finally the entire force of the rebels was defeated, re pulsed and pursued to the Hatchie, when they were met by a force under Hurlbut who drove them back strain, and between the two forces it would seem that their chances of escape arc not flattering to sav the least. Iowa was is this fight is large fores, and has given a good account of the reb els thus far, and we hope to hear of the entire destruction or capture of the irai tor army under Price and Van Dora. JH^McClellan is oa the Potomac anx iously waiting for the forwarding of new troops to enable him to advance ujon the i enemy. Gen. HaUeck is swearing at the tardiness of the '-loyal over nor- in fill ing up the quotas called for by the Pres ident, and M-nding them forward.—[Con stitution. Our cotemporary, following in the wake of other sympathizing sheets, abuses the loyal Governors for their remissness iff furnishing volunteers for the war. Now, it is known to the people gene rally, in Iowa, that there have been ten or a dozan regiments, in addition to those that have gone forward, ready and wait ing. The trouble has not been that the loyal Governors keep the men back, on the contrary they have pushed them for ward faster than the General Government were ready for them. And in most of the Northern States there arc, as in Iowa, a number of regiments already mustered in to the service of the I'nited States and subject to the orders of the War Depart ment—having already passed beyond' the control of the Governors or Bute authori ties. The Burlington Argus notices it as a singular fact that the Gate City had not a single word to say about Tracy's speech and meeting in Keokuk. The Argus did not know, perhaps, that there is no love excisiiug between the Gate City clique and Tracy. If Tracy looks to their support for an election, he will look in vain. They will slaughter him with out mercy.—[KtoLuk Constitution. That is easily accounted for. The local editor is absent, and the editor is not in the habit of attending night meet ings, and could not go out to hear Mr. Tracy. W e shall certainly give Mr. Tracy a •sry cordial support at the polls, but we do not think he requires any aid at our hands to beat his opponent, who run on the same ticket with Jairus Neal last yesr, and has this year "hitched on" aB an Independent Candidate to the tail end of the Mahony ticket Tfe* EaaacipatUl PracUmattm. The Providence Journal contains a tit let- from Newport, which says that a let ter received in that town within s few days, from a gentleman of highest char acter and standing in Louisiana, if pub lished, would be fully conclusive as to the policy and foresight of the emancipation proclama* ion. This gentleman slates it is a fact that the intention of the traitors is to emancipate and. arm^f not the whole, at least 400,000 blocks, and use them against the United States Government vitb i determination to ruk or rain. 'First *»wa Cavalry in th« ft«utfewe*t 8|]ingiii hi, Missouri,) September 28th,'6f. L|| J7r||.*"How»LL. Esq., "1 Ibrar Friend—You no doubt have often asked, Where is the 1st Iowa Cav alry?" In reply allow me to say, that the whereabouts of the 1st Iowa Cavalry for the last four months is a matter of but little moment to the general public, as we were scattered over central Missouri and used as a kind of terror to Bush* whackers, and the Missouri State Militia alike, and to no general good purpose. It was a great relief to know that tho occupation of holding posts was gone.— We are, for the first time, thrown in a Brigade, and it seems odd for us to re port to "Col. William Mc. E. Dye, com manding 2d Brigade, 1st Division of the Army of the South-West." Our Brigade is composed of the 20th Iowa, 37th Illi nois and the 1st Iowa Cavalry, with Co. F, 1st Missouri Artillery. Col. Mc. E. E. Dye, being Senior Colonel, commands the Brigade. Geo. James Totton com mand let Division. Our Regiment is now commanded by Major James C. Gower, much to the sat isfaction of men and officers. Our march to this place was pleasancand orderly, the whole regiment feelingfthat we were'now to accomplish somethihg for our couutry's good. The feeling of indifference has died away, and ail are on the qui rive for some hot work. It is intimated that we will have hot work down South and if so, you may rest assured that the 1st Iowa will make a good record. Quite a stir was produced in camp to day by an order from the Major Com manding, that company commanders should cut down the transportation to the amount published by the Army Regula tions. This was to be looked for, but the question soon became a practical one and discussion was made the order of the day as to what should be left. It was a clear case wheu left to Regulations but then, couldn't I just get the wagon to haul my blanket, my gum coat or boots These queries were what troubled the as tonished soldier, ay he contemplated his pile of calamities, and bundled them sep arately, onearticle at a time saying, "why, this don't weigh anything, I'll take this and that is light, I must not throw that away," till getting all together he would say, "why, all these traps would kiii any horse, I must leave some of them be hind and thus he would begin a new inventory of jxrsvnul effects. The war has now begun in earnest, thank God and we can Bee an end to this unholy rebellion. The President has ta ken that last step left to make our triumph sure, and gain us the respect of all men of all nations, who have the interests of humanity at heart and above all we can now hope and pray for succcss from God, for his righteousness is vindicated.— Surely the day dawns after the long night of suspense and doubt. The talk that the President will have trouble in the army on account of his liguieuua proclamation, is all gotten up for home consumption.— The army must be radical if it allows its eyes to be open at all. The most pro slavery men of former times arc now among the most radical. Indeed, your corres pondent has been roundly berated by sev eral of them for being tinctured with old democratic notions, and stating it was time I had Bense enough to discard my old no tions of the Ut alone policy** Young converts, you know, are zealous, and I let them pass, but cannot help but say, what a change I am glad it is so, and now that the die is cast they will not fall, but fight more vigorously, for they can see flection on his policy was treason most his former adulators knew it was no in spiration of theirs, for it smacked not of chain* and slavery, and to-day they are rubbing up their eyes to arouse themselves from the stunning blow between the eyes, received at the bauds of their owu pro found statesman—the President." We are pleased to see them wince, and unless tbav cease to Jove oppression, or hate slavery, I hope they Will receive another blow from the same hand that will give them a per manent quietus. ™. i. „f *. It is a singular feature of central or south-western Missouri, that you gain deraiiont yon are noarer pure water.— Water can be found readily at from 12 to 2) feet from the surface, in abundance, while water cannot be found at the depth of 140 to 200 fecit in low lands or ravines within a few miles all around I must say a word or two further about our regiment, and quit. Under new or ganization, allowing us 104 men, rank and file, to a company, several changes have occurred in our regiment. Each compa ny is entitled to one Supernumerary 2d Lieutenant, 8 Sergeants (instead of 6, as before.) In Co. A, 1st Sergeant, C. H. Albers was promoted to 2d Lieutenant, a well deserved compliment, for no officer in the regiment was more efficient and prompt in discharge of duty than himself. Co. A is in good health and excellent spir its, none being in the hospital sick except Geo. W. Green, who was wounded in both eyes by an accidental shot, some week's since. A sad casualty befel one member of Co. A the day we marched for Clinton. Sergeant S. C. Van Hook, formerly of Montrose, obtained permission to stop in Clinton a few minutes, and from some cause he delayed some four hours, and in attempting to rejoin the column was shot about 12 miles from Clinton, on Grand river, the ball taking effect on the crown of his head, fracturing the skull. Noth ing was known of it by us till the next day, when we learned he was shot by some bushwhacker. It was too late to send back for him and the column moved on.— We have since learned that he was atten ded by Dr. Dczies, of Clinton, with but little hopes for his reoovery. This was sad news for us all, as he was much loved for his manly frankness and kindness of heart. He was a prompt officer and lov ed to do his duty well. We all hope he may yet be spared and be able to rejoin us again. Sergeant A. 8. Hamilton is now Order ly or First Sergeant, vico C. H. Albers, promoted J. L. Russell was promoted to Commissary Sergeant, and Sergeants and Corporals were regularly promoted by grade, and Privates Jus. Robertson, S. J. Ohlonis, AY m. Goodin and A. Vanauerroan were appointed Corporals Henry E. Wis ner 2d Bugler, making company organi zation complete. We all send our greetings to you, and hope you may soon hear from the 1st Iowa. Yours, &c., the end of this whole foul-hatched rebel-• Robinson, says John Morgan with a thou lion. It is amusing to witness the effect of the proclamation upon the self-styled conservative press. A few weeks ago one would have thought that the President's very soul was in their charge, and any re- i foul. Their trinity was, Lincoln—Mc Clellan—us "—and their columns teemed with incantations to the trio.® The Pres ident spoke—they stood stunned and dumfounded—they read those words again, "shall bit forever free** and white it thrilled a nation's heart with joy, as tho harbinger of glorious things to come—' four miles this side of Bardstown. There We are under marching orders, and ere you get this we will be far away, whither I ing, the water pure and cold. Grapes Lincoln's emancipation proclamation.— abound in great profusion upon this whole range of mountains. I never saiv so large wild grapes—reminding me of cultivated vineyards. They are sweet and would make good wine. I could scarcely be con vinced that they were wild—so large, fresh, well set, sweet. If nature gives us correct indications Of fitness and adapta tion, this is certainly the winccountry of the west. Tliat Buoli Louisville, Oct. 4. Advices say Jack Brewer, with a com pany or rebels went up the Red River to capture Jim Townsend's home guards.— The rebels were defeated with great slaughter. General G. W. Morgan left but four guns at Cumberland Gap, and those with trunions knocked off. The rebels burned a bridge near Au burn on Monday night. Bruce immedi ately sent thithor the 7th Indiana, and part of the 8th Kentucky, and rebuilt the bridge, and routed the enemy at Russel ville, killing and wounding50, and taking 15 prisoners and 40 hordes and saddles.— He also routed a party at Glasgow yes terday, taking 10 prisoners, including Lieut. Col. Crews, Capt. Brown and Lieut. Thomas. A Portsmouth, Ohio, dispatch to Gov. sand men yesterday attacked the Carter county home guards near Olive Hill. Af ter several hours severe skirmishing Mor gan was repulsed and 20 of his men killed. Morgan then retreated towards Licking burning thirty five houses on his river wa^' Last night Morgan returned to Olive Hill, meanwhile Colonel Lippertwent to Portsmouth and brought 500 of the 17th Ohio. Bardstown dispatches say the rebels have from 30,000 to ii5,000 men within a circle of 8 mites in diameter around Bardstown.

Saturday morn ing Price attacked Rosecrans' right and Van Iorn and Lovell his left. The as sault was made with great determination. At one time our ccnter was penetrated and the rebels reached the Corinth Ilouso. They were driven out at the point of the bayonet. Van Dorn led his column over an nbattis on the left and within fifty yards of a ditch, exposed ail the time to a seething lire of grape and canister. He was drivt n back by a charge of the 27th Ohio and 11th Missouri. The battle lasted till 11 o'clock, when the rebels began to retreat t• aids Hat chie. The number of killed on either side is not known. The rebel loss is re ported much larger than our own. We have between 7o0 and 1000 prisoners, not including the wounded. Gen. Haekel inao is killed. Gen. Oglesby dangerous ly wounded. Cols. Gilbert, Smith and Mower wounded. Mobile and Ohio Railroad is not seri ously injured. The telegraph is repaired to Corinth. General Hurlbut marched on Saturday to the south side of Hatchie river with a large force, thus cutting off Price's retreat. Gen. Rosecrans moved early this morn ing to renew the attack, aud cinnonading has been heard in tho direction of these I'nves. Price's forces are in the forks of Hatchie river and between Ilurlbut and Rosecrans. Jackson, Oct. 5. To Brig. Gen. G. ML Dodge, Columbus Forbid all citizens coming down the river for a few days. They cannot go to Corinth at present, on account of breaks iu the railroad, and they would be placed at useless expense and trouble by coming now. Due notice will be giveu of the repair of the road.

Tribune.] Salt Luke City, Sept. 10, 1862, A company from Warren county, Iowa, left there sometime about the middle of May, finally left the Missouri River on the 2(t.h of May, and was composed of the following persons: John Adams Smith, Jonathan Smith, Lewis Smith, Joseph Jones, Hiram Baker, James Lynch. Taylor Waterhouse, Kiias Shaw, Charles Blandus, Frederick Hey man, Thomas Ball und Henry Ball. Two other persons were in the train, but their names 1 could not learn, and with the company were twelve women and about the same number of children. Nothing occurred in their journey till they reached, on the 26th of August, Sublett's Cut-off, a little to the southeast of Fort Ilall. The Indians attacked them there early in the morninr. and after a. fight of an Lour and a half, succeeded in driving away from the immigrants forty five oxen, seven horses and four mules, leaving only six oxen for twelve wagons. The company filled one wagon with pro visions, and hastened away from the camping ground, as they dreaded the re turn of the Indians to pillage the w&gous. They traveled iu fear, and before sundown the iudiaus, greatly increased in numbers, came upon them and renewed the attack. The immigrants attempted to reach some willow bushes, in hopes of finding pro tection, but seeing their intention, the savages reached it first, aud encircled the company, leaving men, women and child ren without other shelter than the stunt ed sage bushes, that were no barriers to the llight of the rifle ball. The immigrants fought with the des peration of despair, till darkness conceal ed them, and the Indians left them thor oughly despoiled of everything but forty pounds of flour, which some in fleeing from the wagon, had the prudence to re tain. Several of the Indians were killed or wounded, aud of the immigrants were killed: John Ball, who left a wife and two children Thomas Ball, whose wife and childron are in Warren county, Iowa Thomas Heyman, from Minnesota, aud Taylor Waterhouse, who disappeared aud was never found again. Capt. Jonathan Smith was shot through both legs, above the knees and shot through the right arm. llis father was shot through the right hand and his brother through the left hand. A ball traversed the body of his wife, entering her right side and coming out at her left side. His daughter, four years of age, was shot through the body, and died the third day after. The life of Capt Smith is despaired of, but the oth ers are recovering. They placed the bodies of the dead side by side and left them unburied, as they were uesiuuie oi tiie means ot burying them, and were uncertain of the position of the Indians. The wounded were car ried by the men who were uuhurt, and the children were carried in the arms of the others. In this way they traveled the first night, and afraid to venture out in daylight, they rested in the bushes untill the return of darkness. The second night aud second day they traveled another pa(h in the direction of the settlements on Bear Ri*cr. Three of the men lefllu ad vance in hopes of proeurin ©led three more days tH the Bear River ferry. Here their sad tale wa* heard, and a Mormon of the name of Loveland immediately fitted out three wagons with provisions and sent five men to bring in the destitute company. After five days' absence the wagons returned, and oti Sunday last took the wounded and destitute into the Box Elder Settle ment, where they will, in all probability, remain during the winter. While one of the company was relating to me what I have here written, his eyes were gleaming with tears. Yes," said he, the Mor mon people liavc been kind to UH, we will never forget them, yet all kind# of. bad stories are told against them by men who have an interest in sending immi grants over that terrible road." My narrative need go no further only let me say, immigrants abandon that northern route, unless you go in force to bid defiance to the Indians. Y E E A .tfli rnoun Mlriiorl. Great Battle at Corinth.

Ford instructing the latter to hold on to Maryland Heights till the cow's tail comes off, is a forgery, that Ford left his position against his wish and in obedience to positive orders, and that Milcb alone, of all the officers at the poet, is responsible for the disaster. The British steamer Dispatch labeled, sometime ago, in a civil Buit for $30,000 and placed in custody of the U* S. Mar« shall.
