Commodore Winsiow said that he was not a speech
maker; but, In the name of his brother tart, he ouid
not help expressing bis grailtudo for tnis reception. It
was one of the moat gratliying things that when men did
their duty faltnrully it was appreciated by the country
they bad served To the victors beluug the spoils; and
no nnhier spoils could be had than auch a welcomo as
this. Ha would not speak of tho action with the Ala
bama; but wben he ouusidared the state of feeling In
Europe before it, be could not himself help appreciating
the imimrtance of tbe victory In loreign courts and
foreign oittew secession agents bed held sway. Union
men were under a cloud, and our cause was held In dls
repute. But tbe testimonial* he b >d received, the
thanks that scores of tbe a ns of America abroad poured
In upon him, showed that the cloud was lilted, in is was
to him a ru n rewai d for all hie services, and reused him
a world of Joy. Mia own deeds wero naught, but the
noble pride of his countrymen was everything.
Hon. Edward Everett wae reoeived with cheers, and
congratulated the Mayor on this occasion of welcome,
which would be rei?'aled wherever the Kearanrge went
For every tar who lougbt on ner deck* that name would
be a talisman In all the tuture. No victory ever created
greater joy or gladness tbau lb* exploit of those men In

It was a beaultlul battle I here wae yet with us some
thing of sadness wben we remembered that our South
ern loe* were our brethren; but there wee no such re
gret called forth by the Alabama She wae a vessel
built in another country by a wretch wbo for tbe s.ke of
gain waa willing to Imperil the interests and pesos of
two greet nations, ber armament end equipment were
furnished from similar sources; she was manned by
foreign Bailors, and commanded by a man who went
forth to wage Inglorious war upon unarmed ves
sels. It was a poetic justice that she should
be sunk where she was, In lb* ceatre of Eu
rope, with emperors sod kings as spectators, end
the ton r or our oountrv as the prtxe of tbe combat,
q he** heroes did tbe f ord a wnrk on Ute I/.rde Hay. It
was sad to say that one hero ell that day, aud two
oibe.s were wounded; and If ibes* latter were bore be
hoped they wo ild com# lorwarrl. (Tbe two sailors were
urged lorwerd by their comrades, and hailed with
cheers.) One th'ng he regretted that the yacht of an
Englishman should have acted as tender to the pirate. It
had been said, too, that the gunners nf the Alabama were

and, wltb tbo aid of four oj tnga, started for tbs
North river. It not belay\i first the idea to take bar to
an eaeborage beyopd ^ oob dock, steam was not up on
more ftbnu ooe toiler; but when It was determined t*
proceed down the East river the Chief Engineer, Mr.
Robie, at once started the fires under two additional
boilers, and after some time tbo engines were
put In motion. The ship Immediately felt the
power and moved ahead slowly agalnet a flood
tide that ran like a millrace. Until the engines
started the four tugs attached to her oould but Just stem
the curreot, and the ship, tbeerlng from ooe side to tbe
other, threatened to become wholly unmanagable. But
with the aid of her engines ebe moved ahead quite
rapidly, taking everythlos into con a (deration. Narrowly
escaping tbe running down or several vessels In the river,
she finally got her head straight and steamed alone finely.
From the Battery to tbn point where ebe anchored In the
Bay, oil (love-nnr't lelaud, she steamed at tbe rate
of six knota against a atroug tide, and with only one
fourth of ber power developed the englnea woiked
smoothly and to a charm. They were not run np to halt

tbe Immenao hull along at a rata of tpe*'d unattainable

when her foil power la develotwd remains to be even.
()no serious defect developed by the run was in ber
steering. It required four men nt tbe wheel, and with

On Ike 89th ull. General Blunt, with two brigades, 00m
roaaded reapeolivsly by Colonala Ford and Jannlaoo, com
prising about 8,200 men, all cavalry, with two pleoea of
tbo Saooad Colorado battery, came up with tba rear of
Price's army, about 10,000 strong, at Kewlonla. It waa
ascertained lubaequenily that Sbalby commanded tba
rebel force; and bo oerlalnly bandied them wlib much
more skill and Judgment than Price himself displayed in
Kansas wbea defeated by Pleasanton.
General Bluat, with bis well known impetuosity, or*
dered un advance. He drove In the rebel sktrniiebnrs,
and shortly developed the whole foroe of rebels In a
strong position south of Newtonia. Our to roes occupied
an eminence north or the town, with their right resting
on a dry ravine known on the map aa Indian craek. The
rebeia received the attack in silenoe, but when our artil
lery opened with sheila they brought to tbe front three
guns, much to tbs surprise of the Kaosaa*boys, who
bad aappoaed tbe rebeia lost all tbatr artillery near Fort
Seetk Our faroes did not make much Impress too on tbe
rebel Una, On the eontrnry, they were In n crtiloel posl
tlon, as the rebels began a movement wbloh threatened
both tbelr Hanks at tbe same time.
This was tbs situation whan General Sanborn's two
brigades of oavelry, 00mmended by General McNeil and
Cokooel PhlUIpe, who had beard tba bring and pushed for
ward at breakneck speed, arrived io sight of tba bnttla
bold. Gaoaral Sanborn held a brief cooferenee wltb Gene
ral Blunt and then ordered a vigorous charge ou tbe left,
where tbe.rebels were tbe atrengest. Tbe First brigade,
consisting of tbe Sixth and Kigbtb Maine and tbe Second
Arkansas cavalry, dismounted, and completely surprised
tbe rebels by charging through a corn field. Tbe rebel
fire slackened, and the rebels retreated. Tbe day was too
far advanced, and tbe men not sufficiently weit supplied
with ammunition to justify an order to pursue. Gen. San
born says two hours mure of daylight would bavo enabled
bim to capture many hundred prisoner!. All tbat fell
Into our bands were about two buudred In number. These
prisouera report tbat Prlco waa to tbo advance, with Fa
gin's division, making fast time for the Arkansas river.
Tbe order of t.eueral Kosecrans did not contemplate
pursuit beyond tbe State line; hi fact, tbe condition of our
cavalry wculd not warrant it. Blunt was unable to pur
sue on account of tbe inadequacy of bis furce without tbe
help of 8anborn. Consequently all our troope Dave with
drawn irom the pursuit of l'rice, and the rebels may
make their way back to Ktrby Smith and Magruder the
best way tbey can. Tbeir experience Is unfavorable to
an immediate resumption of Invadtog projects.

The rebel officers who arrived here last week, Includ
lug Major General Marmaduke and Uriuadler General Ca
bell, have been sent to Johnson's Is'aud A sec nd ba'cb
of fhty oiiicer-. and eight hundred prisoners reached here
on Sunday by the Pacific Hailroad. lbev were about the
scabbiest lot of rebels ever seen in this vicinity. Hat
lese, shoeless, haggard, pale, and depressed in appear
ance, tbey wore nardiy welcomed even by the most ar
dent secesh females wltu tbeir usual enthusiasm. The
feeling caused by tbe permission to Harm -duke and
Cabell to go to a tlrst class hotel was so unanimous in the
city that the military authorit.es respected the verdict of
the public aDU seat the second lot of officers to the mili
tary prison in Gratiot street without any ceremony.
A rebel major, named .Voir, or Ford's rebel cavalry,
has been selected as a victim of tbe retaliatory meuaures
ordered by General Kosecrans for the inhuman murder
of Major Wilson and his comrades At tbo time the six
privates were shot the Provost Marshal had no major la
bis hands to avtnge Major Wilson's death. Toe detlcieuoy
waa supplied by the arrival of tbe rebel officer previously
mentioned. An order has been Issued for tbe execution
of Major Wolf, by shooting, on Friday next. At first It
wag Intended to send Wolf to Alton in irons, to await lite
result ol un application to Price,;by Sag of truce, for tbe
surrender of Wnsou'a murderers; but tbe folly of tbe
delay is apparent, and Wslf will doubtless be shot, as
ordersd, 00 tbs Ulh lust.
The guorillss are still too numerbua for the safely of
Union men In many localities, but tbey will dwiudlo
from this time forth. The gaog lately commanded by
Bill Anderson have been oommktiutg more devilish cruel
ties in North Missouri under fresh leadership. Thskr
new captain Is named Jackson,and be must be a fiend id-'
carnate IT the stories of his atrocities are true. Tns
guerillas wbo captured the town of Ciarksvllle have been
deepened; hone have beau captured however. All our
mtlitlm have found they bavo killed, and that's just
what Is being done everywhere pi the Interior where
rebels en be caught who have is flic ted damage upon
the Union cense
rovesling the depths of wickedness to which s rebel osn
descend, is reported In Osage county. A couple of Union
farmer*, who had just returned after being driven out,
were seized by guerillas, and commanded t? deliver tbelr
money. One give up teu dollars and fifty costs; tbs otbsr
bad none to deliver. The repels theo took them towards
the wood, wbeu 000 of the prisoners broke from his cap
ton and escaped. Tbe other, Mr. Owen Kiggs was tied to
a tree and a fire built under bim. After roasting bis legs,
tbe rebols lo- nod hiss and asked for mors money. As ne
bad none, tbey wire dissatisfied, sod built a fire upon ba
breast, and otherwise burned his body. Thi* proceeding
failing to extort any money from tbe helpltss captive,
tbey let htm go. Ho will be a cripple for life. Of conrae

After diligent inquiries I have been able to learn that
