Arrival or the I'orcon nt Union ICoukc l:ltbt llnndrcil SHIos Iu MiliLlfcn Iuy A Hold Mtrokr. ly the New Orleans papers of May 0, we have particulars of the arrival at . Raton Kongo of the Sixth and Seventh Illinois cavalry, nine hundred strong (Colonel Gricr son's expedition), who cut their wav through the whole, length of Jlississippi. They Htartcd from La Grange, Tenn., on the morn ing of the 17th tilt., and reached Baton llouge on the evening of 2d May, perform ing the whole distance in sixteen days. They made a zig-zag course through the state, sometimes striking east, sometimes west, but pushing south the whole time. In this way they travelled probably 800 miles, averaging over forty miles a day. During part of the journey they travelled eighty miles iu twenty-eight hour, had three en counters with the enemy, destroyed two bridges, tore, up the track, nnd swam two livers. The force consisted of the Sixth Illinois cavalry, Lieutenant-Colonel Loomis ; the Seventh Illinois cavalry, Colonel Ktl. Prince, and six pieces of artillery, two pound cali bre, the whole under command of Colonel Grierson of the Sixth Illinois. On their way from La Graitire down through the centre of Mississippi, they destroyed bridges, railroads depots, engines, cars, rebel stores of all kinds anil in immense quantities. Their route embraced a breadth of more than twenty miles, and everything that could be used by the rebels that fell ill their way was destroyed. The telegraph, too, was cut in un immense niimhrr of places; intact pi complete was the destruction, and so rapid and mysterious their movements, that the rebels were bewildered, and this hand of heroes were in ISaton Jtoiigc before the rebels knew who they were, or what they were, or where they came from. The force at starling including the Se cond Iowa cavalry, Colonel Hatch, as well as I lie Sixth and Seventh Illinois, already men tioned, comprising about seventeen hundred men. From l.n Grange they inarched nearly due south, halting tit night live miles north of ltipley, in Marshall county.. Next morn ing the column moved to ltipley. whence the Second lo-.va started for New Albany. At Clear Springs, in Chicasaw county, Col. Hatch, with his command, started south easterly lo West Point, in Lowndes county, tut the .Mobile and Ohio liailrnad. After that Colonel Grierson heard nothing of the Second Iowa, except occasionally Illinois through the rebels. ItltlSK WOltK. Xear JCew Albany the Tallahatchie is crosst-d by a bridge, where they fust met signs of Ihe enemy. On the opposite side is a steep hill, whieh would have enabled a few men to hold at buy a large force. In stead of charging ou the bridge they threw out skirmishers, and fortunate enough they diil, for they found the bridge Jiartly de stroyed. The pickets were dri en oil', ami the skirmUhcrs rejoined the main column lower down, hen the whole force entered the town. They then moved on Pontotoc, where they destroyed some salt, the camp ami garrison cipiipnge of a cavalry company, ami also a gunsmith's shop. A mail from the Poit ollief was secured, and ulso u large quantity of oats. Ou Ihe morning of the 2(th about one hundred and seventy live of the nu n who were the least effective, w ith some prisoners, under command of Major Love, were sent back to La Grange, with orders to send scouts to cut thu telegraph wires, ut Ox ford. A few jiiilcs beyond Starkille a tannery, continuing u number of army boots, shoe's, saddles, bridles, anil a large quantity of leather, was entirely destroyed. The value is estimated lit twenty-five thousand dollars. In the biiiltling they found a negro chained lo the Ho ir, with ait iron collar roulid his neck, and there kept at work day and r.ight for running away. Thai man was taken through to I la ton ltotige. A march of twenty-six miles brought the forces to Louisville, Winston county. Most of the route lay throtigh a dense swamp, frequently to the horses' bellies in water. At one point it was so deep the horse's swam over, and some got drowned, with a narrow escape lor their riders. They thru pushed on to Philadelphia, Neshoba county, where there is a bridge over the Pcari rhcr, which the rebels undertook to destroy, but they precipitately tied us our force approach ed. Later in the day a brigade under Colonel Blackburn and Major Gntlmin wus sent to strike the railroad at Ieratur, Newton coun ty. Here they captured a train of thirteen cars, which was just about starting, loadetl with quartermasters' and commissary Mores, including ammunition and buuib-bliclls in large quantities. They had scarcely se cured this train and got it on the side track when another t rain tf twenty-live cars, load ed with railroad ties, came into the depot, which was alio secured. Wood was piled up around the engines und tenders, net lire to, and by that menus the boiler burst the torch was applied to the train of cars con taining the ammunition and about three thousand shells. 'When these were fired, Ihe main column was four or five miles oil', tuid thu noise of the explosion led them to suppose the rebel had opened on the ad vance column. They hurried on, und soon found out their mistake. Major St:irr moved his battalion cast, and destroyed three bridges and a lot of trestle work extending over two miles, the traek torn up, rails broken and burned, und telgrapli destroyed for rive miles. Near Gallatin fourteen hundred pounds of powder, two wagons, twenty-six joko of oxen, und a thirty-two pound Parrot t gun, were captured. The gun was spiked. At luiou Church, forty-two miles from N'utchca ami twenty from Port Gibsou, a skirmish occurred with Adams's Alabama cavulry, iu which several of the enemy were wounded, the rest retreating to Port Gib son. At Brookhavwi Camp of Instruction ttmr companies, under command of 'Major Starr, took two captains, one lieutenant, one sur geon und nineteen privates prisoners. They also captured a lot of Mississippi rilles, mules, ox teams, $3,000 worth of commis sary store aud f 25,000 worth of army cloth ing. At the crossing of Pearl river Colour! Prince captured a courier with instructions to destroy all bridges, &c., which fortunate circunistuiice added somewhat to the safety of the com maud. At ILuclhurst, Colonel Prince, of (be Seventh Illinois, captured a train of about tea cars, several of tthick were lauded will shall and ammunition. Another train, which had jut afhst't, tvaped by tb backing out of the train by the engineer before be could be captured. About four miles east of Gallatin a bat talion was detached to strike New Orleans and Jackson Ilailroud at Bahahi station, where water tanks, cars and other property was destroyed. At Wall's station, on the Tickfaw, a regi ment of rebel cavalry was discovered, who were routed w ith several killed and wound ed. Our loss was one killed and live wotfnd cd ; among them was Lieutenant-Colonel Blackburn, of the Seventh Illinois. He was shot in the thigh, and slightly in the hiad. Ho was left, with several of the wounded, at a house, with an injunction that, if not kindly treated, when our boys returned they would take their revenge. At Summit a large amount of government sugar, wood and locomotives, Ac, were destroyed. Tho cop of Hughes's and Milbum's Partisan 'Hangers, on Big Sandy creek, was attacked and destroyed, and n large number of horses cauptured ; from here they moved on the Greenville Spring road toward Buton Houge. About nine miles from Baton Bougc the entire com mand of Stuart's cavalry, fourteen officers nud eighty men, were captured. The men made very little resistance, retreating to the river, where they were surroltudcd. l.NC'iriKNTS. It is almost impossible to give you any thing like a perfect nketcl) of the fix teen days' march of this band of heroes. How they managed to endure and hold out under the fatigues of so long und perilous a march through the enemy's country living as they liest could sleeping but an hour or two nt a time, is one of the most remarkable events in the history of warfare. In comparison the deeds of Stuart. Jackson und other Con federate cavalry, dwindle into the mo.-i contemptible alfairs not worth speaking of. At one place a number of old gray headed men came out to resist the cavalry v illi shot guns, and tired several shots. Not a shot was fired in return. They were sur rounded, disarmed and their weapon de stroyed. This very much astonished them : they hail been led to believe they would be killed, their homes destroyed, and every imaginable cruelty perpetrated upon them. But when they found the men of the North wete only lighting against efficient rebels, they seemed to wake up from a delusion. They then willingly gave tnr men what as sistance they could, anil one uf them under took to act us a guide. The iimounl ofdamnge done to the rebels it is difficult to estimate not a bridge or railroad, not a line of telegraph any where along the whole route but w hat was destroy ed. Horses, w hen necessary, were impressed to replace the worn (Hit ones. Oirly a small slock of provision was brought along, so that they had to live on the enemy, and tolerably hard fare they had too. Large numbers of men offered themselves to be paroled as a means of avoiding thu conscrip tion of the rebel officers. Hundreds of negroes joined them ns they came .along, bringing, till one, some two horses or mules. The success of the expedition could be shown iu no more palpable manner than the health of the men. When they reached liatou Houge, after a sixteen days' ride w ith only one whole night's rest, and badly sup plied with food, only twelve men were turn ed over to the surgeon. Many of the men sutl'ered from swelling of the legs und ery sipelas, from sitting so long in the saddle, but it was only temporary. They had a very clever way of cutting the telegraph wires so us to avoid discovery. Instead ol cutting the wires and letting the ends hang Ioom Iv, they tied up the ends with trips of leather, so that it would not be easily seen, ami y-t the connection was severed. Par into the interior they were mistaken tor rebel cavalry, nnd complimented upon the fineness of their outfit. Ou more than one occasion they protitetl by this igno rance.

Thirteen huudrcd cavalry were sent after them from Mobile, u thousand came south of Port Hudson, crossing Pearl river at Columbia, and two thousand came from the vicinity of Greenwood und Grunado, to cut oil' their retreat to La Grange. They all fell to the rear, supposing Colonel Grierson would re turn. Colonel Grifrsons says that bad he had the means, or had it formed a part of his plan, he could had at least two brigades of colored men who were anxious to join him, if he could have armed them, another proof of the desire of the negro to be free, and his w illingness to serve the I'nion cause. As it was, about live hundred negroes und one thousand horses wcru brought in, besides cattle. Some idea of the pluck and endurance ot these men can be gleaned from thu fact that during the hist thirty hoursin which they had ridden eighty miles, fought two or three skirmishes, destroyed bridges, camps, equipages, Ac ; swam a river and captured forty-tw o prisoners and quantities of horses, they had scarcely halted at ull, anil went through these terrilic exertions without food fur man or beast 1 Huriug the hist night it was observed that nearly the entire column worn out almost beyond human endurance were fast asleep upon horseback ; except w hen the sharp report of a carbine told of the nearness of the enemy.

The Richmond Enquirer of the 1.1th in stant, publishes the following account of the circumstances under which Stonewall Jack son wus wounded '. "General Jackson having gone some dis tance in front of tho line of skirmishers on Saturday evening, was returning about 8 o'clock, attended by bis stall' und part of his couriers. The cavalcade was iu the darkness of the night mistaken for a body of the ene my's cavalry, and fired upon by a regiment of bis own corps. He was struck by three balls, one through the left arm, two inches below the shoulder joint, shattering th bone and severing the chief artery ; another ball passed through the same arm between the elbow and wrist, making its exit through the palm of the hand ; a third ball entered the palm of the right hand about its middle, passing through, and broke two bones. He was wounded on the plank road, about fifty yards in advance of the enemy. He foil from his horse, and was caught by Captain Wornilcy, to whom he remarked, 'All my wounds are by my own men.' He bad given orders to lire at anything coming up the road, before he left the lines. The enemy's skirmishers appeared ahead of him, and he turned to ride back. Just then some one cried out, 'Cavalry, charge !' and immedi ately the regiment tired. The whole party broke forward to ride through our lino to escape the fire. Captain Boswcll was killed, and carried through the line by his horse, and fell among our own men. Col. Couch field, Chief of Stalf, was wounded by his side. Two couriers were killed. Major Pendleton, Lieutenants Morrison and Smith escaped uninjured. General Jackson was, immediately placed on a litter and started for the rear. The tiring attracted the atten tion of Ihe enemy, and was resumed by both lines. One litter bearer wiis shot down, and the General fell from the shoulders of the men, receiving a severe contussion, adding to the injury of the arm, aud injuring his side severely. "The enemy's fire of artillery on this point was terrible. General Jackson was left for live minutes, until the lire slackened; then plaeetl in an ambulance and curried to the field hospital at Wilderness Hun. He lost a large amount of blood, and at one time told Dr. MeGuirc he thought he was dying, and would have bled to death, but a tourniquet was immediately applied. For two hours he was near pulseless from the shock. As ho was ln'ing curried from the field, frequent inquiries were made by the soldiers, "Who have you there f lie told the doctor, 'Do not tell the troops 1 am wounded.' "After the reaction, a consultation was hchl between Drs. Black, Coleman, Walls and MeGuirc, and amputation was decided upon. He was asked, 'if wu fiiidjnmpntit tion necessary, shall it lie done at once ' He replied, 'Yes, certainly. Dr. McGuire lo for me what you think is right.' Thu operation wus performed w hile he w as under the influence of chloroform, nnd was borne well. He slept on Sunday morning, was cheerful, aud iu every way was doing well. He sent for Mrs. Jackson, nsked minutely about the battle, spoke cheerfully of the result, ami said : 'If I had not been wounded, or had nn hour more of daylight. I would have cut oil' the inemy from the road to the I'liited States Ford, and we would have had thrin entirely surrounded, and they would have been obliged to surrender, or cut their way out. They had no other alternative. My troops sometimes may fail in driving the enemy from a position. I. tit the enemy always fail to drive my men from a position.' This was said smilingly. He complained this day ftf the fall from the litter, although no contusion or abrasion was apparent as the result of the fall. He did. not complain of his wounds; never spoke of them unless asked. On Sunday evening he slept well. On Monday ho was curried to Chancellor's house, near Guiiincss's depot. He w as cheer ful ; talked about thu battle gallant bear ing of General Kliodes, and said that his Miijotvtieneral's commission ought to date from Saturday, the grand charge of his old Stonewall brigade, of which he had beard ; asked after all his officers. During the day talked inoro than usital.ind said : 'Men who live through this war will be proud to say, "1 was one of the Stonewall brigade," to their children.' He insisted that the tenn Stonewall belonged to thrill, and nut to him. 'During the ride to Guinness's he com plained greatly of heat, und besides wet ap plications to his wounds, begyed that a wet cloth be applied to his stomach, which was done, greatly to his relief, as he expressed il. He slept well on Monday night, and ate with relish the next morning. On Tuesday his wounds were doing very well. He ask ed, 'Can you tell me, from the appearance of my wounds, how long 1 will be kept from the field C He was greatly satisfied when told they were doing remarkably Well. He did not complain of any pain in his side, aud wanted to see the members of his start', but was advised not. On Wednesday his wounds looked remarkably well. He ex pected to go to Utchmoiitl this day. hut was prevented by ruin. This night, while his surgeon, who hail slept none for three nights, was asleep, he complained of umisca, and ordered his boy, Jim. to place a wet towel over his stomach. This was done. About daylight the surgeon was awakened by the bov saving, 'Hie General is m great pain.' The pain was in the right side, nud due' tiV incipient pneumonia ami some iu rroustiess which he himself attributed to the fall from the litter. On Thursday Mrs. Jackson urri ved, greatly to bis joy and satisfaction, and she faithfully nursed him to the cud. By Thursday evening till pain had ceased. He sutfered greatly from prostration. On Fri day he sutfered no pain, but prostration in creased. On StrrwiM-y morning, when it wa appa rent that be was rapidly sinking, Mrs. Jack sou was in I'o rmed of his condition. She then hail free and full converse w ith bim, and told him be was going to die. He said: 'Very good ; very good. It is all right.' Ho bad previously suid : 'I consider these wounds a blessing. They were glvtin me for some good and wise puipose. I would not part with them if I could.

IMI'CltK AIU CAIIllOSIC ACIIT. Among the poisonous gases which infest our atmosphere, carbonic acid deserves special consideration. The principal result ot nil respiration nnd combustion, it exists in minute quantities everywhere, but when it accumulates to the extent of onts nr two per cent, it seriously compromises hcaltli. I have seen the lost half of an eloquent sermon entirely lost upon the congregation ; carbonic acid had so accumulated that it operated like a moderate doso of opium. No peroration would arouse (hem. Nothing but open windows could srart life's currents. In lectures , before lycenms I oftr-n hnvc a quarrel with the managers about ventila tion. There is, even among the more in telligent, n strange indifference to the sub ject. The following fact graphically illustrates the influence of carbonic "acid on human life: A young Frenchman, if. Deal, finding his hopes of cutting a figure in the world rather dubious resolved to commit suicide; but that he might not leave the world with out producing ti RcnsatitMi and flourishing in the ncwspacrs, be resolved kill him self with carbonic acid. So, stunting him self up in a close room, bo succeeded ill his purpose, leaving to the world the following account, which was found near his dead body the next morning: "I have thought it useful, in the interest of science, to make known the effects of charcoal upon man. I place n lump, n candle and a watch on my table, and com mence the ceremony. "It is a quarter past ten. I have just lighted the stove; the charcoal burns feebly. "Twenty minutes past ten, Tho pulse is calm, and beats at its nsutil rale. 'Thirty minutes past ten. A thick vapor gradually fills the room ; Ihe candle in near ly extinguished ; I begin to feel a violent headache; my eyes till with tears; I feci a general sense of discomfort ; the p'jlsc is agitated. "Forty minutes past ten. My candle has gone out ; the lamp still bums; the veins at my temple throb as if they would burst ; I feel very sleepy ; I sull'er horribly iu the stomach ; my pulse is at eighty. "Fifty minutes past ten. I nm almost stifled ; strange ideas assail mc I can scarcely breathe. . . , . I shall not go far There are symptoms of mad ness "F.leveu o'clock. I cart scarcely write. . . . . My sight ia troubled. . . . . My lamp is going out I did not think it would be such agonv to die Ten. o Here followed some quite illegible char acters. Life had ebbed. The following morning be was found on the floor. The steamer Londonderry left Liverpool for Sligo on Friday, December 2d, 1843, with two hundred passengers, mostly emi grants. A storm booh came on. The captain ordered the passengers into the steerage cabin, which was eighteen feet long, eleven wide, and seven high, The hatches were closed, and a tarpaulin fastened over this only entrance to the cabin. The poor creatures were now coudemnod to breathe the same nir over and over again. Then followed a dreadful scene. The groans of the dying, the curses and shrieks of those not yet in the agonies of death, must have been inconceivably horrible. The struggling mass at length burst open the hatches, and the mate was railed to gaze at the fearful spectacle. Seventy-two were already dead, many were dying, their bodies convulsed, the blond starting from their nostrils, eyes and ears. It does not appear that the captain de signed to Hiilfocate his pussengen, but thut he wus simply ignorant of the fuct that uir which has -Kissed to ana fro in the lungs becomes a deadly poison. Thu victims of the Black Hole iuCulcutta and of the steamer Londonderry, with the thousand other instances in which immedi ate death has resulted from carbonic acid, are terrible examples in the history of human sullering ; but these cases tire all us nothing compared with those of the millions vho nightly sW'p iu uuvcntilnU'd room, from w hich they escape with life, but not without serious injury. As u medical man, I have visited thousands of sick persons, and have not found one hundred of llieui in u pure atmosphere. 1 have often returned from church seriously doubting whether I hud not committed- a bin in exposing myself to its poisonous uir. There are in our great cities churches costing fifty thousand-d'Olars. iu the coustructiou ot which not titty dollars were expended In providing means for veil tilatiou.

If thu laws which emanated from such an at mosphere were good, it is a remarkable in- ! stance of the mental ami moral rising above ; a depraved physical.

' MOISTlllB IX l'UK ATMOMPllKliK, , I It is thu common belief thit a tlrv iittnns j pherc is most lavorabie to the consumptive. Mauy medical authors have advanced this assumption. It is, nevertheless, uu emu'. Iu thu British Isles ami iu France, otit-ide the cities ami muuitluctorics, thu mortality from pulmonary diseases is much less thau among thu agricultural classes of this iTim try. - And ou the western shores of this con tinent consumption is comparatively un kiiowiL (Hir disadvantage lu this comparison is attributable, iu coiuidurublu pit, to the lack of humidity iu our atmosphere. With out the cvidcuce of fuels we might, a privri, argue thut excessive dryness of thu uir would produce dryness aud irritability of the air passugea. From time iimneiuorial, watery vapor has been usetl as a remedy in irriu tiou und iuflautuiutiou of the rtspirutory A. hundred timc4 ImVo Iny Consumptive patients cxprcsed surprise that the wet weather, in which I have insisted they should go out as usual, lias not injured them that they even breathe more freely than on pleasant days. Of course, I tell tlicm, it the body is well protected, the itrtire moist the air, the inure grateful to your lung There is no possible weather which can excuse thccoiiMtmptive for keeping in doors. Give him sufficient clothing, protect Ids feel fcurcfully, and be may go out frAjely in rain, snow and wind. That point of temperature at which tho moUture of the air flrt becomes visible is known as tbc dew-point. According to one authority, the mean dew-point of Lnglnnd, from the first of November to the last of Mirch, ia atr-rot 85 degrees ; that of our northern states about 10 degrees. Now, suppose a home iu England is kept at a temperature of 70 degrees, tho drying power there would be represented bv i-. A house with the same temperature in Albany, for example, would possess a drying power of 54. This great contrast iu the atmosphere, of the two countries is Vtri kingly illustrated by Ihe dill'erence between the plump body and smooth skin of the Englishman, and the lean, juiceless body, and dry, cracked skin of the Yankee. It is also "shown by the well known dilfcrcnee in the influence of housc-hcat upon furniture, bur chairs and solas mid wood-work warp and shrink, w hile nothing of the sort occurs in England. As we cannot increase tbc amount of mois ture in the atmosphere of our continent, we must limit our practical ctl'i-rts to the air of our houses. If we use a stove, its entire tipper surlacc may bo made a reservoir for water; ornamental work, of but little cost, may bo used to conceal it. The furnace may be made to send up, with its bmt, many gallons of water daily, in the form ff vapor. In justice to stoves and furnaces, I must say here, that, in the opportunity to do this, they possess one advantage Aver open lire places. By adding artificial moisture in this way to the nir of our houses, we not only save our furniture from drying and shrinking, but protect our skin, eyes nose, throat aud lungs from undue dryness, nnd from tho ntlcctions to w hieh it would give rise. It is found ncecs.-ary, in our cloth manufacto ries to maintain u moi't atmosphere in or der to successful Spinning.

Naturalists are de lighted to reatl that tit last a Moa lias been seen in New Zealand. The Moa is a walk ing, not u flying bird, supposed, from the numerous skeletons which have been found of it, to grow from eight to nine feet high. It has been hitherto believed to be extinct, though it was known thut Within the memory of men now living on the island it bad been kiild and eaten by the natives. It was always hoped that iu the micxplored parti of the island gome lost specimen ot this nearly extinct race .might yet be found alive; ami now it seems that a gold miner sitting by his camp-tire saw one, peering; at him, from the edge of a near hill. II j took it at first to be a man, but presently saw it gravely starting off. The track or foot print of this gieat bird showed "threw claws, and, about a tV-ot behind, the mark of a pad, und behind that again of u spur." A reward of twenty five hundred dollars has been offered for the bird, alive or dead; Hint if the miner told the truth, we may vet see a li icg Moa a member of a tribe) once sufficiently numerous in New Zealand 'o be a souree of dread to the natives.
