( oloncl t raig, litV.h Pennsylv inia, cotnm mdmg
the .'d Ilngail t. .'I I Division, '21 Corps. Hi; was
killed ivkjle gailantly leading a charge on Taet

w- lost a niiniber of our men liy their being taken
prisoners. SMedily rillying, hoever, the
enemy w -c drnen from their nfl -pits, and it is
p'ported mat tonic of our men were recaptured
by the loth C orps.
It is still a i.ehatahie point whether wc sur
prised the enemy by falling upon him unawares
or whether he surprised us nto-t by his anple
preparations to receive tn.. Our movements as
to our ih tin ition were well covered, but Rebel
shrewdness broke the corering, f ir, on the day
the troops embarked, twenty-four Ilebel s 'outs
wero watching every movement from a large
whiln building, known as the Harrison House,
h lug below City Polut, north of the James.
In for in at Ion of their movements was given, and
by (burning pickets across the river the pirty
probably would have been captured, bat thoy
remained undisturbed until our lleet of trans
ports began to move, when one by one, at Inter
vals often or fifteen minn.es, ihcy galloped a. vy
inwards the enemy on our approach.
Tho latest news I hear from Deep llot'om is
brought by fleneral II irlow, who arrived at 3 P.
M, yesterday. Ho reports things progressing
fcvornbly our forces wi hin seven milesof Rich
mond, and holding a better position than the
Rebels. Our losses are somewhat heavy, but do
not exceed those of the enemy.

When the Sanitary Commission tug f,'.jiv i-ijor
Curtin left Deep bottom ut noon yesterday, the
hospitals were tilled to overflowing.
Numerous amputations had been made, and
the patients generally were cheerful. There
seemed to be a lack of surgical aid. If so, it was
c-rtainly only temporary, for there is an abun
dance hete.
Brigadier - General Chambli.ss Rebol) was
wounded, ard died within our Hues yesterday.
Ho was a brave, reckless fellow, fonght hard, and
though repeatedly summoned to surrender, stub
bornly refused to do to, and not until he had
wounded four men was he killed.
It is generally believed that another Rebel oflt
ccr of a similar rank (rliigadler-tieneral Olierar
ilic) fell in the same light. We have on the
ordnance wharf here one siege gun, with thirty
boxes of ammunition, taken from the Reb Is ou
Tuesday, all bearing tho Richmond brand, and
the Julia A, Warner takes il twn tho rifer to-day
three huge rudely mounted pieces, 8-inch b oro,
a d a kind ol cross between a mortar and how
itzer eilicient, I should judge, ia delivering
grape and canister at short range.

our mor between Deep Uotlom auj Jones' Land

bca witnessing rather an unusual exhibition.
At precisely 1 o'clock this morning, tho enemy
opened with artillery and mortars iu front of the
6'b, Dili, and 18tU Corps. The tiring continued
rapid for nearly two huurs, the Rebels having
things about their own way.
Very little of our artillery was brought into
action, and but comparatively few mortars. TUelr
tiring both from mortirs and artillery wai fir
superior lo any I have seen from them. Wbat

'Ihe following is from a loiter writ'en bv one
Relad to another, that accidentally fell into the
bands of one uf my f How. prisoners, and for the
atithrntlci'y of which I vouch :
"Very lew persons are prep 'ring to o'ley the
late call of tho Govt mor. lis siiiirnoiis will
in i t with no response here. The pcop'c are so il
sick, and heartily tired of this hateful, homeless
tlr,fc They would end it if they could ; but our
would-be rulers will talie good ; care that uo op.
poriunity be given the peop'e to vote agiinst it.
liy Ii s, l.y fraud, and by chicanery, this involu
tion was iiniuguratod ; by force, by tvreonv ami
tbe suppression of truth it Is sustained. It
is nearly time that it should end, and of
sheer depletion i. must end n.oore long.
We tnive had enough uf want and of woe,
enough of cruelly and carnage, enough
ul ei l pies and corpcs. There is an abundance,
ol benaved parents, weeping widows, and or
phaned children in the land. If we can, let ui
not increase Ihe number. Tne men who, 1 1
sggrandue themselves, or to gratify their own
)sintical ambition, brought this cruel w r up n a
peaceful and prosperous country, will hive to
render a feat fill Recount of their misdeeds to a
wronged, robbed, and outraged pooplo K vtn
bns no punishment snltlclently meet for their
villainy here, and hell will hardly be hit enough
to rcatho them hereafter."
Tbi re is certainly a no small proportion of tho
Southern people (despite the lying declar ttions
of their Journals, as wo had good otcasion to
learn), that not only favor the progress of our
aims, but that daily pray that this exterminating
war may smm be brought to a finality hy our
complete and rx-rfect success. They liavo bid
too much of despotism not enough of the tri
umph promised them. Muny intelligent South
ern gentlemen do, Indeed, express strong hopes
of their ultimate independence, but su-h uope is
n t shared by the masses.

that is the result of our next election for rresl
ilciit. It'll Democrat succoedsto Mr. I.lnc oln, they
prole-s lo feel sure of negotiations, and sure of
tbi ir Confederacy. They believe a Dom ient will
be elect d.
In Mr. Lincoln's re-election they see only .sub
jugation, annihilation, for tbe war must then
c ntinue, and continuance is their failure and
rnin.
In military affairs it is an excellent rule never

(JiIchU
Now, I am not enough of a politician to kno
whe'ber tbe election of a Democrat can result as
lavoridily to tin' South us if anticlpa es. The wish
aione may be iho parent of their Isalief. Mm. I
assured all who expressed thut belief, that the
North, as a muss, is as united as tbe So uh ; that
no Democrat could be elected on a pea 'e pi it
form; and that any I'rcid-nt who would In
uuguruic ar.v incisure Kadin't to jiei e on the
ha-is uf S.iU'heru Independence, would be
promptly bnng, hy loyal acclamation, to the
lump post in front of his own presidential
mansion.
However that may he, if we are? but true our
selves there can be but one result, ll'ior ire nw
ncdixiiun only men not substitutes or b re

thctr country's cause in her hour of peril, inoy
are unworthy of continuing freemen, and siiould
blush ever lo exercise a fieeiiiau's privilege.
Hut If bounties must be paid, lot it be in
Southern land, not In No lheru gold; und sr.nies

To every intelligent soldier who h is fought
through at 1 1 thc-e mile i-ive camianns ou
almost numberlo-s indeci-lvo fields, the i test'on
constantly arises, with t inching force, Why do
we nut overwhelm our enemies i
Tens of thoiis.niils ol lives art lost because our
arry of strength is soillHproportiottably lcsstlnu

The South will light us long a tbe struggle Is

have been hopcles-ly irti-liid. liven at this
moment a third column ol Iu.iksi to.Vl.o ) I ri.;!nly
moved, would give unopposed blows lo the Con
federacy from which she could never rise.
What folly then lo strngKlo on lit this way,
win n we cau send lo the field live times the for te
already there ! What weakness to think we can
not coniuer the South ! Behind the James ouly
boys and old men are to be seen, while here men
buy and tell at In the olden days of quiet, and
reglne'ts of. able-bodied citizens crowd the
streets of our cities.
There Is tuif ono course consistent with stf. ty
or honor. Let tbe people awuko to a sense uf
their dipnltv ond stten th, and a few mon'hs o'
com pn rat ivelv trifling exertion, of such effort as

send u few spare thousands over rather thin

shine hi-oii a regenerated land.
There are some ho si-euk of peace! Ol all
Yankees the Koitthron most scorns those who do
not light, but are glad enough to employ them,
as they do their slaves, to iicrform their dirty
