Troy nnd many other Northern cities were excited, last evening, by the news q a rtid upon the viUge of St' Allans, Yeruiont. We issued a third edition at 5. o'clock, containing the bare annoutice ip. t-nt n a trapbfer of the war to North ern soil, and awaited further particulars which we pre enabled to pre.-ent to-day, from the lips of an eye-wMne?s of the murderous and ruffianly transaction, Mr, J. IL Baldwin, tenductor of the -deeping tar train from Ro'ise's Point to Troy who ri ntLt J lit re at 5 o!ot k this moruipj. As narrated Ly him, the St. Allans raid will lonj be remeaibertd as one of the most daring and bruiai events, in the present war. 'Mr. Baldwin had been taking a vaca tion for a ftwr uays.sioppin at ihe Amer i' an Hotel, Stv. All ai;s. About a week eq orlle strangers ranu to board at this howj.y and i!ie Trmotit. Un? pf thein, rtiiling.l.irn, felt (Jttlnnel, appeared to be 11 proininenl ne aiucf g them. He w 55 a man ot iDHdium size, aoout tinny-five jears ot age. and appeared 10 linve no oihT natne loan that of Colonel. Oher? of the pariy, who tutf quenily proved to be jji'i-ves and uiurders. were hai.itt.d in i!ie Uijifonn of Uuiltd Smtes o(iin -T$.and all wlu wore a sort of w tapper o! tape, and each car tied a satchel slunn by a siioulder strap at the left fide, after lh uini.ntr oT EnIi.li sportsmen. There eilit;d to be no concert of action be tween any of these nun they said n-th-in to ench other in public to all ap parances, they were substitute brokers, contractors or speculators, such aa are of ten seen in frontier towns St. Albaus, being only sixteen miles from the Cana da Lue. Un Tuebday uiht the Mran gers in the village were re-iuforctd by others, who arrived in the train front Rouse's Point ,apd new faces appeared t the breakfast tables of the hotels. t)n Wednesday morning-, a further batch of con.-piraurs arrived, till about thirty raidershdd collected. And then the plot was rip fur execution At 3 o'clock p. m.an Wednesday. Oct. Ipih. St. Albans was in a state of yppar ent4quiet common to New England towns manifesting no more excitement than an occasional team driving through the streets or a whistle from some approach- j ing tram among the Green Mountains. The blue waters of Lake Charnplain. at some distance from the to vn, were unrippled; the leafs slopes back of the place were still. Iet iae calm was soon succeeded by a storm. Our inform ant, Conductor Baldwin, was standing on the steps of the American IIoihI, jusl as the town bell rang out the hour of 3 o'clock, uhen he saw a man coming out of the door. of the First National Bank and as he did so a citizen on the step. knocke him down. A second was also floored; but . the third had a pistol in his hand, a,ad; the citizen-retreated. The Conductor thought the affair wa3 the'freak of some drunk en men, but soon he saw symptoms of a disturlan:e at other prints. Several men appeared to be rushing about with piatols, in parties of from five to ten. One of these gangs met a Mr, Morri and presented a weapon to him, demand ing hi surrender. He answnrrd, "You are joking, boys." They fired, and he fell, weltering in his blood. Our in formant saw him hro-.v up his hands and then sink on the ground, and then he realize', for the firi time that. the village v.as ai'.itUd ly Mid otgar.iztd body of men, bent on-piiiage and regardless of human Lf' Meanwht.le the attatk had been si multaneous on the ihiee Banks the First National, Franklin County, and St Albuns. Panics tntered each. When the teller or "easier, suspecting no evil, asked what they desired, the lea- presented a pistol, with the: exclamation You are my prisoners. If you move an inch we'll blow you through." Oth ers r.f the gang then went to the vault, DO and drawers, and laid violent' hands on ail the tpecie bills and other articles which they could find, and filled the side satchels which each wore, as we before described. Of cour.-e, resistance ' was useless, for the surprise was complete At the Franklin County Park, the rai ders pushed the cashier, Mr. Peartbley, and one cf the clerks, into the vault and locked them up, and the prisoners 'were not release4 until late in the night. Then commenced a reign of terror in the .village. Plunder had Leeu accom rlished, and violence followed. The raid was brief, but the s.cene must have been terrible while it lasted. The thirty or more marauders rushed up and down the streets firing their pistol in every direction. Whenever they -ava citizen or group of men, they would aim in that direction. They had msguificent arms seven-shooters and as fats as one weapon was unloaded they drew.an iiher i and kept up the fusilade. Air. Oildwin says he can only liken the sounds to the noise of a Fourth of July morning in a barge city. There wa3 a continuous bang ! bang ! bang. Of course this reck less use of fire crms could qot continue with nobody hurt. The Sheriff of the County fell; Mr. Hunting-ton was shot while resisting the robbery of his store; a woman, whose name we did not 1-arn, ftjl and, nitvre dastardly than all, as the guei riilas were .leaving the town, thy saw a little girl in the street, aaJ wan uuily' kihed her. And the bullets were flying-around among th-; buildings in the main street, nearly all of which bear marks of lead. Windows, were broken, blinds chipped, o;:'h popjj wounded. It was a scene that beggars al descrip MQ'l. . ,. Of course, the entire populace rushed xwo the m reel.-. Tji-y havo 110 idea ! the cause of the disturbance, for they were engaged in tbeir'usual daily avoca lions, and the raid was vlike thunder f r in a clar ky." The gu-rnlla?, a.-, they ru-hed through the town, stopped ali ih ci:2rius they met. and gathered them in squads under guard of a few men armed wi h pistols, treating them as prisoners on the common. Meanwhile the remainder of the banditti started to s cure hor.-es. They took two from Fuller's, several from the American and Tremont stables, and a SI!oO span from Mr. Clark cf Rutland, securing; about thirty in all.; Their . adroitness in cut ting off harness was marvelous, .and the contents of the saddle makers, shops soon enibjecj the yiilians tq become cavalry, instead of foot-pads. Meanwhile their threats were terrible ''we will burn your d d towu," they said. We will treat you as the people of Atlanta were treated." They also said "We are a coming baclc agaip, and will burn every town in Vermont." At six o'clock, the out-buildings of the Aoirican Hotel were discovered to be ou fire. Whether f.he Marauders had fired the town during their three o'clock visit and the flames smouldered, or whether sympathizers or accomplices in the town had started the confiagrat9on three hours afterwards, is not known. Terrible to discover, water would not extinguish the flimes. The walls had been covered with phosphorous, and the engins were useless. In this emergency by tearing down the . fences, throwing vinegar and molasses on the fire, and smothering it with blankets, it was finaUy paout.' . ... Buffalo October 31. The city was patrolled by the military and a large force of last night. Companies were stationed onthe dry docks. Nothing 0!cu,rred, but it is thought the prompt action of the authorities, and the fact that the military were out yesterday attending Generel Bidweil's funeral, frustrated the raiders' jla,n. A- number of suspicious persons have been observed , in town within a short time past. . ' It is stated to-day that the rocket? were thrown up and guns fired lask night by unknown par'ies. They are thought to have teen signals to parlies on the oppo site shore. . - " The St. Allans Raid.

Scouts csj me into Litlex Rock on the evening of, tie 15th, and reported that a body of from fifteen to twen'y thous and rebels; cavalry and infant ry.with ar tillery, were crossing the Saline river, northward, landing just below Benton, in Saline county. 'Benton is about twenty-five miles from little Rock. Next day two reconnoitering parties of cavalry left Little Rock, composed of the 1st and 14th Missouri cavalry, a mounung to 1,0(70 men. One party moved west and the" other in a direct line towards Benton. There were apftehension3 of a de sign to attack Little Rock, " but it wi. thought the rebel movement had for its object a co-operation with Price's forces advancing from Kansas presumed by the rebels to be laden with spoils col lected from the raid through Missouri and Kansas. Jt is highly probable that the Confederate trans-Mississippi pro gramme has" arranged for reinforcing Price at a period when it might have been expected the Union armies would be upon his heels.

The Largest Gun In tbe World. The grand test of 'he iweuty-inch Rodman gun at Fort Hamilton. - on the 26th, proved an entire uccesa. At 12 p,clo.ck, for the first loading of the heav iest piece of ordnance in the world, the parapets of the fort were thronged with distinguished officers and ladies and gentlemen, anxious to witness the uial oAhe great gun. It was not until half past two o'clock, the first discharge, a blank cartidge, pf one hundred pounds of powder, was fired. The concussion fol lowing "the dischaige was slight, and the recoil of the gua much less" than was an: ticipated. The piece was next loaded with" a charge of fifty pound of . powder and a thousand pound shell. The time taken in loading was about half an hour. The seccond trial .was as successful as the first, the balhjin consequence of con siderable depression of he gun, striking the water at a quarter of a mile distance, ricoheting several times. The gun, on examination, being fcund to have receiv ed no strains, preparations were rr4a.de for a final test. At five o'clock the piece was again oaded with a charge, of Gne hundred pounds of powder and a ball weighing one thousand and eighty pounds one of the largest projectiles ever cast. It was found to be anything but an easy task to adjust the ball. However, at the hour mentioned, the piece was loaded, everybpdy stood clear for the last grand tria.1. The gun was raised to an eleva tion of twenty-Jivedegrees, and the dis charge was deafening. The Ball was twenty-four seconds in the sir, a,nd fell at the distance of about three miles and a half.- Considerable applause followed the final shot, and all concerned in the management of the piece were warmly congratulated.

Some o the atrocities committed by Trice and his minions, during their raid through Missouri, are so revolting and fiendish, that it is difficult to believe that mere men, possessing, the shape and na ture of common humanity, could be guilty of them. The following extract from an order issued by Gen Thomas Ewing, announc ing the intelligence cf the murder of AJajor Wilson, 3d. Cav. M. S. M., gives one, of the many diabolical crimes com mitted by them. "With profound sorrow the General Commanding announces thcmournful in telligence of the murder of Major Jame; Wilson, 3d. Cav. M. . S. M. and six of his command. "On the27ih of September they were taken in fair fight at Pilot KnoW, by Brigadier Gen Fagan's command, and were subjected to every indignity that malignant cowardice could invent, until the 5th iqst., when they were delivered over ten miles west of Union, Mo., by order of the rebel field Officer of the Day, to the guerilla Tim Reevs, for ex ecution. Their bodies were found yes terday,. and that of Major Wilson, thoush riddled by bullets and mutilated by long exposure, was identified by the uniform and private official papers found upon it. as well as by the personal recognition of his a isociates in service." This is a very-brief account The re port of the investigation into the circum stances attending the execution, show it to have been a most horrible affair un equaled, perhaps, by anything that has occurred during the war, except the massacre at Fort Pillow.

He under stands that the army line road, is to be immediately pushed out to the left two or three miles beyoud its present ter minus. Why this important extension of our fortified line came to be so easily made, was by the enemy" weakening their lines of battle at this point, to in tercept what they look to be a flank movement around their extreme right. While they were niassjng agaipst the 2d and 5th corps on the extreme left, the 9th corps shoved in at this point and took a line of their works, "which was remov ed, and uqw form our new left angle, probably not during tho war, has so im portant an extension of fortified line been made with so little fighting.
