Brave Chnrce of kJeneral Donnelly A Ballet Pierced hla Mplne HtarvloaT Fenians Bivouac In the Melds near St. Albaoa U. S. Iteculars Patrolling the Town.1 St. Albans, Vt., May 20. The present Fe nian demonstration, which is quickly drawing; to a close, will unquestionably share the fate of its predecessors, and end in defeat. The cap tare of General O'Neill, who now lies a prisoner in Burlington jail, combined with the sad re sults of yesterday's encounter and the constant arrival of United States regular troops by every train, has tended to dishearten and demoralize the Fenian forces in this locality. With the Canadians in front and our regulars behind, all further attacks on the Canadians are useless here. AFTER THE BATTLE GEN. DONNELLY'S FATE. The road this morning between Franklin and St. Albans was thronged with straggler!. Many of them were coatless, and but very few were armed. Cpon their arrival here they were questioned concerning the fate of General J. J. Donnelly and his companions who were left in a barn surrounded by the Canadians. One of the stragglers, a very intelligent Irishman, gave ,a vivid description of the manner in which the General and those who accompanied him were rescued, and the finale of yesterday's battle. He said that in order to divert the attention of the Canadian volunteers the Fenians opened a brisk fire on the enemy from A BRASS CANNON, which they placed in a commanding position on the brow of a hill. The Canadian militia, at this unexpected attack, and not suspecting the stratagem, formed themselves into line, and marched against the Fenians. Hardly had the Canadians proceeded a respectful distance, when General Donnelly and his comrades immediately sallied forth. Their movements were observed. The Canadians wheeled about and discharged a volley ajt the fugitives. ' GENERAL DONNELLY FELL pierced by a bullet near the spine, and would have been instantly taken prisoner had his com panions not seized noia ot mm ana carried mm almost senseless within the Fenian lines. He was then placed in an ambulance and carried to the Franklin House, which had been converted into A FENIAN HOSPITAL. Its present inmates besides General Donnelly, whose condition is pronounced dangerous, are Charles Carleton, of Cambridge, Vt., aid-de camp on General O'Neill's Staff, who has a slight flesh wound in the right leg: James Keenan, of Fort Edward, shot through the right ankle Daniel Ahearn, of Burlington, severe wound in the left hip; and Francis Carman, of Bridgeport, Conn., dangerously wounded in the groin. Lieutenant Edward J. Hope, who received a wound in the knee, was removed from the hos pital this morning by his friends. With the woundine of General Donnolly, the battle ended. Intelligence of the abandonment of the expe- ition was in a 6nort time conveyed to tne Canadian camp. The Kanucks cheered lustily and threw their caps high in the air at hearing the welcome news. The Canadian commander, as soon as his army had given full vent to their joy, ordered TUB BURIAL OF THE DEAD. The dead bodies had been stretched upon the hillside since yesterday. The body of John Howe, who was the first to fall in the attack, was seized and carelessly tossed into an exca vation three feet deep. and. amid llbesand jeers. the clay was shovelled over it. The remaining bodies on the hillside and in the brook were taken in charge by Americans and decently interred. THE REAR GUARD. The Fenians in St. Albans at present writing number 500. As a general thing they are able b'xlitd and strong men, having the appearance of being desperate characters and tough cus tomers to handle. A few boys are Intermingled with .hem. They have no arms, no food, and no money. As the people of this place are not in sympathy with their cause, they have had no alternative lelt but to lounge around the depot. FREE TRANSPORTATION HOMEWARD. The Superintendent of the Vermont Central Railroad has received orders from Washington to furnish transportation at the expense of the Government to such as desire to return to their homes, and a large number have availed them selves of the opportunity and taken their depar ture this eventne. About 3 o'clock this afternoon Companies I, E. and L, of the 5th United States Artillery, numbering 175 men, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel George A. Kensel, arrived from iorts Warren and Independence, Boston harbor, ihey are encamped in the part. THE CANADIAN TROOPS in the engagement yesterday were in command of Captain Asa Westover. They were an inde pendent company ot mintia, and did not, ac cording to the most reliable reports, number more than CO or 70 men. They were shortly alter relniorced; but now mere are lew, tr any, At the scene of the engagement. Captain West- over s company were provided with eprlngueid (Mass.) breach loaders, and have been drilling for some time past. liowe, one of the Fenians killed, was buried by the Canadians last evening. After the burial large stones were placed at the head and foot of the grave, and a pile of stones on top. Much comment has been made concerning the manner of the bnrial. A report has been received that General Donnelly is more badly wounded than was at first supposed, and fears are entertained that HE CANNOT LIVE, as a high fever has set in. He was wounded In the thigh. Depnty United States Marshal Flanagan, of Burlington, has been to Hubbard's Corner to-day, and ollicialiy informed all parties concerned that he has seized all the arms and equipments that bad been abandoned, in the name of the United States. Governor Hendee, Adjutant-General Wells, Quartermaster Fitkiu, District Attorney Fifleld, and other prominent gentlemen from different parts of the Si ate, have been in town to-day. Three carloads of Fenians, on their way to Malone, passed through here on the evening train for that point. The ConrentralUa at Malone Policy mf the I 'anuftln nmA 'lrli.lve Hiiiil-" i:ieolel. AIaloke, N, Y., May The k email tsv vi operations is now on Trout river, eleven miles from here, which intersecting stream formi the boundary line. The main body crossed the river this afternoon, and citizens here who have visited the scene ot operations state that the advance Is fully four miles on the other side, and within seven of the village of Huntingdon. General Gleason, who arrived this afternoon from New York, has also gone io the front. He states that fully 10,000 men are on their way from various points. Nearly all who have put in an appearance here are in uniform and out on the front. They appear to have plenty of arms, and have already secured two small pieces of artillery, though the source is a yet un known. Ammunition is also abundant. THE CANADIAN POLICY. Judging from the tenor of the remarks made by the Canadian officers near Franklin Centre, and by our own ofllcers at St. Albans, the move ments on atom river wm not ue spoiled oy so sudden a Check on the line. No doubt the pre sent Invading column will be permitted to march well into the territory of Canada, only that it may be the more effectually shattered and dis persed. At an events tnat is tne oniy aavisaoie policy for the Canadians, and one which, if followed up, will extinguish the Fenian move ment forever. Fearfnl Pxcltement en the Canadian Side Movement el l niiea mmee rroopa. Ogden8buro, May 20. The Fenian excite ment in this direction is on the increase. The Irish farmers, with their teams, have been en gaged for the last three nights in hauling mate rials for the Fenians. This afternoon I had an interview with Dan. Cavanagh, who was one of the eighty-five teamsters who went from this vicinity with the column which crossed the line below Fort Covington, this morning. He was the only one permitted to return. Last night the movement was as brisk as ever. Thirteen loaded teams passed through Lisbon last night to join this column, it is no exag- ? oration to say that the St. Lawrence county rishmen have gone en masse with their teams. There will be a further movement to-night. MOVEMENTS OF UNITED STATES OFFICERS. The following despatch has just been received here: Washington, May sc. 18T0. To S. P. Remington, Collector of Customs : Direct Captain Treadway to snip tne proper com plement of men and Inform the Lnlted states Mar shal that the vessel Is placed at his order. UEOKOH B. BOUTWEM,, Secretary of Treasury. Captain Treadway commands tho armed re venue cutter S. P. Chase, which has been out of commission at this port. In the same train which brought the United States troops came 250 Fenians on their way to join the Hunting don column, mere was no attempt to inter fere with them by the troops. At De Kalb Junction they separated, the soldiers coming here and the Fenians going on to Potsdam Junction. At 7Jf this evening another detach ment of troops arrived here. They number fifty-three men rank and file, and belong to the First Artillery. Thirty Fenians came on the same train and went on to Potsdam Junction. There is a fearful depression in all circles, and rumors of the defeat of the regulars are rife. A MODEL GOVERNOR. Serious Charges Avalnut Governor Bullock of taeoi-Kia. The Atlanta Constitution publishes three columns of charges and specifications against Governor Bullock, emanating from Treasurer Angler. A considerable portion of this indict ment has already been made public. We give the concluding passages as a specimen: "While the uovernor neituer gives in nor pays any state, county, city, or revenue .in come) tax, mere was couecteo. tnrougu one house in the city, in the space of a few weeks, nearly $15,000 on the Governor's drafts or 'checks drawn while ho was in Washington, in favor of parties there, on the bank here, where the State railroad deposits are Kept, under cir cumstances that indicated to those who pre sented the draft, or 'checks,' that the Governor s personal account was exhausted or greatly over drawn, or that the State railroad funds were suf fering. One thing is certain, if he has these tens ot inousanns to nis personal ere a a, ne is defrauding not only the General and State Governments, but the county and city. "This is the mortification ot the great '.Empire State of the South' is reduced to, of having a Governor who prates loudly of the elective franchise, while he has failed to place himself in a condition to be entitled to the common pri vilege of the ballot-box by reason of not having paid even a poll tax, except one or two dollars fast year, under city execution for double poll, for falling to give in. vvnere uo nis tens oi thousands spent in Washington come from ? The tax-payers would like for the committee to investigate this point. RAILROAD ACCIDENT. Another Disaster on the Pennsylvania Central A jiraaeinaa jvmiou. The Harrlsburg Patriot of yesterday says: W. H. Smith, a brakeman on the Marysvllle freight, Pennsylvania Railroad, was run over by the cars yesterday morning about nine o'clock, a short distance above the round-houses, and sustained injuries that culminated in death half an hour after the accident, me disaster oc curred while he was uncoupling cars. The im pression is that be had one foot on each bumper, and the engine, giving a suuaen ana unexpected jerk, threw him on the track, two cars passing over his body and mangling it terribly. His legs were fiist run over and crushed, when, it is thought, he moved and several wheels passed over bis groin and across his back. No rational word proceeded from him after his painful posi tion was discovered. The deceased was about twenty-five years of ftt,e, aud leaves a wife and child, who reside on Ridge road, between Relly and Maclay streets. Mr. Smith was a brake man on-the Pennsylvania railroad for a number of years and was regarded as a sober, indus trious, and careful employe. He once held the position of brakeman on the New York freight. The Coroner's inquest, which was held at the residence of the deceased, corresponds with the account above given, with the additional state ment that the Pennsylvania Railroad Company and its employes were not responsible tor the accident.

The only Fenians that left for their homes last evening were the Bur lington boys. The rest remained here, and were provided with food by order of United States Marshal Foster, and the village authori ties. The presence of United States troops, and the closing of liquor saloons, conspired to make them orderly and peaceable. The depot furnished shelter for about one hundred,! others are quartered on their sym pathizing friends, while others are compelled to lie out of doors. The men have no money, and the officers do not seem to have more than enough to provide for their own wants. Some of the men claim that General O'Neill has one or two hundred thousand dollars of Fenian funds in his possession, but this state ment must be taken with many grains of allow ance. They have been loitering about the streets this morning In squads of ten or more, dis cussing their probable fate and destination. General Spear and the Fenian Generals J. U. Gleason and H. Prim, who arrived this morning, and booked their names at the American House, from Virginia, have, with all the lesser lights in the Fenian brotherhood, been in close consul tation over the situation, and the consultation culminated in the issuing of an order by Gene ral Spear ordering the men to go into an en campment two or three miles from here. FROM THE SOUTH. Tli a fiiit Rawlnar llgnttat at AnnaDolls Mid ahlpnien vs. Quaker City Club of Piiiludelphlii. Special Despatch to The Bvening Telegraph. Annapolis. Md., May 27 The interest in the race between the Midshipmen's Barge Club and the Quaker City Barge Club of Philadel phia has been gradually growing in intensity until to-day the time appointed for the con testit forms the engrossing topic of conversa tion. A committee from Philadelphia visited Annapolis a 6hort time since, and the arrange ments were then made for to-day's race. It was then agreed that the Quaker City Club should pull their shell "Nautilus," which was built for them in Greenpoint last summer, by the celebrated builder Elliott. The "Nautilus" weighs 140 pounds, and is 43 feet long, and 19 inches wide. The Midshipmen agreed to row in their new paper boat, ballt recently at Troy. This boat is 43 feet long, and is a beautiful specimen of workmanship. By further regulations, neither crew was allowed to carry a coxswain, the boats belnar steered by the bow-oar. The Severn river was the place determined upon for the contest, the course to be three miles long a mile and a half and return. It is perfectly straight, and presents an admirable rowing ground. A fine chance is also given to spectators, ai the whole course can be taken in by the eye from any point. Both clubs have been in active train ing since the arrangements were made for the race the Philadelphia boys under the veteran Harry Coulter, and the Midshipmen under Blakle, the trainer of the Harvard crew in the international contest last year on the Tuamus. The Quaker City Is regarded as the rcpre sentative of the Schuylkill Navy of Philadelphia, Both crews are in the finest possible condition Below will be found a correct list of the crews: OUAIER CITY.

TnE Relapsing Fbver. This terrible epi demic is still raging in the Bedford street dis trict, and with the approach of summer it is more than ever important that the efforts to check it should be Increased if its spread to all parts of the city is to be prevented. Rev. J. D. Long, the Bedford street mlisionary, reports tbe number of caes of relapsing fever sent to the hospital on Monday last to be be 11; oa Tuesday, 10; on Wednesday, 8; on Thursday, 10. Dr. Goodwin, the Port Physician, under tbe direction of the Board of Health, has insti tuted many energetic measures that it is to be hoped will speedily be put in execution. This is a matter in which every citizen is interested, and those who are endeavoring to crush out the pestilence should receive the hearty support or all classes in the community. One or the great necessities in the Bedford street district is bath ing facilities, by which the miserable wretches who are breeding disease in their filth may be in some degree purified. Mr. Long is of the opinion that by means of baths the pestilence can be checked more readily than in almost any other way, or that at least the baths will be a most valuable auxiliary. For the establishment of baths, however, money is needed, and we commcml the matter to the consideration of our readers with the hope that they will extend the necessary aid. If all the churches would take up collections to assist the Bedford f treet mis sionary in carrying on nis gooa worn, a sum large enough to put the necessary baths in operation might easily be raised, and an im- Eortant step be taken to prevent the city from eing devastated by pestilence during the summer. This morning six cases were reported for removal to the Municipal Hospital, in which institution there are already 123 cases. A Silk Eobbeby. Some time last nicht the establishment of H. L. Freyer, No. 727 Jayne street, was entered and robbed of 800 spools of silk, valued at $300. The thieves, who were supposed to be boys, entered through the second story window, the shutters of which they broke to pieces, new iney reacnea tne second story is as yet a problem. TnE Knife. Last night a row occurred la the "groggery" No. 714 Spafford street, during the continuance of which one of the partici pants, named Michael Dowllng, drew forth a knife and attempted to kill another named Gray. Dowllng was arrested and taken before Alder man Collins, who sent him to prison.
