we ascertain through our own scouts aud citizens, tho re

will risk much, so pressing are their necessities, to get
them within their grasp.
On the morning of the 7tb inst. General Powell's dlvl

fully known to tbe rebels.
A day or two amce a negro brought in a report that the
rebels hod evacuated their position at Mllford. Accord
ingly we sent out a reconquering party, under command
of Colonel McGec, of the Third Virginia, to ascertain if
the report was reliably founded. Colonel McGeo drove in
the enemy's outposts, but on pressing farward found the

The Tallapoosa, side-wheel in, Lieutenant Commander
Joaoph K Be Haven, froin acrui.se In eeurcb of the Talla

stant in a generally r mashed up condition. She leu
Halifax on the evening of the 3d, and experienced heavy
weather during the entire passage On iho eveoing of
the 3th she encountered a strong gale from tbe north
northwest, with a heavy rolling sea, causing tbe shin to
hibor hoHvily.and finally parting tbe key io tbe alter
rudder. Tbe tiller erna ubitted to the forward rudder,
And the ship became somewhat more manageable.
At half past eight P. M., the gale and sea Increasing, and
the ship rolling heavily, she was boarded by a soccea
aion of aeas, which started tbe gun deck stanchions,
directly under the aflor pivot gun, und threatened to
let the gun through tbe deck. The weight of
metal at this point proved too great for the strength
of the ship in such weather. Captain He Havens
was compelled to place seven temporary stan
choons under the quarter deck to support it. At mid
blgbt the ship waa rolling badly and shipping much
wntar, and dually was boarded by a very heavy sea,
which carried away the cabin skylight, and completely
flooded the cabin, ward room and steerage
At half-past five o'clock A. M. of the Ctb tbe key to the
[ forward rudder gave way, al-1 the ship was Is:t quite
unmanageable, rolling heavily sod knocking things to
pieces at an alarming rate. The heavy seas tumbled in
on her and swept ber decks fore and alt, requiring nit the
hatches to be battened down to preveut the ship being
swamped. At four o'clocg in tbe afternoon tbo galo for
tunately moderated, and Captain Be Haven succeeded in
rigging a temporary rudder and managed to steer tbo
I ship tolerably well.
i At half-past eight P. M. Cape Cod Light was made, and
the Navy Tard was ruacbed in tbe morning.
The Tallapoosa will havo to be docked and thoroughly
repaired and strengthened before again going io sea.
It will roquiro many days to put ber in order, as she is
badly strained and twisted, and It is doubtful whether
she will ever become a decent or sare sea-boat.
Tbe new double-enders bave, in nearly every Instance,
proved to be miserable sea-boats. Scarcely one of them
has encountered a galo that has not put tnera in hospital
for weeks before they could again be sent to sea. The

00 my arrival here I noticed a buetl'cg and a move

easy to perceive that something very extraordinary had

If there was only one be would have eootu-h

thought it was Mr. Drives stick. Of this they
c uld judge. He was Inclined to believe mat the

sudden impulse arising from tbe temptation which lbs
handsome watch aud chain excited. Mr. Ilrlggs' slick

the cuse to the lime tnat Mutler left Kugiund. He I
showed that prior to the murdur Muller was so b or
that bee uld not raise four pounds p, pay his passage

great distress, if he hud throe pounds ti leeu shillings
would be not have done what be did immediately on

out or pawn, and when he hid the money to buy tho
valuable watch. We find then the articles m prisoner's
pnsse-sion immediately alter the inuidi r, and he
gave a false statement oi bow he got them, he
had tne means of ottering siren er evidence tbi-u thit
as t. ihe h.t. ibe bat he neid in tils bind was that i

he should show, by very striking evidence, that the hat
