WwoHKSTKn, June 10, 1862.
Although I cannot claim that "I fight
'mit Sigel," And thereby entitle myself to
the kind consideration o( your ,German
readers, yet the simple fact that 1 am ?' 'mit
Sigel'a army'* should, on my return to the
city, onlitie mo to an extra allowance of
'?lager," drawn from the cellar of the eel
ebrated Glossner, or the pipes or our wor
thy councilman and brewer Mr. Kleiner.
The slightest announcement in St. Louis,
after the battlo of Lexington, that any re
turned soldier had fought ?"mit Sigel,"
wns sure to guarantee him a hearty wel
come, and Teutonic idolatry of its. able
military masters, secures for him a like
attention in that element of the Union
army here.
1 havo made my quarters here from sev
eral reasons, the most urgent of which is,
that I have found it impossible to get-fur
ther at the present, and not tho least Im
portant, seeing that this place is the basis
of operations for the line extending up the
Valley to both Front Royal and Mt. Jack
sou. ilere are Majors General Banks and
Sigel, nnd a score ot Brigadiers, among
whom I may mention Generals Williams,
Gordon, Steinwehr, and Slough. This lat
ter named gentleman is tbB commander of
the Third Brigade nodcr General Banks,
nnd was formerly our well-known fellow
citizen, John P. Slongh, member of Legis
lature from Hamilton county,- and after
ward a resident of Kansas, where he mov
ed in an important circle during several
political campaigns.
Fremont being at Mt. Jackson, Shields
at Front Royal, and other detachments
scattered here and there, I have from that
reason remained here, as well as from ne
cessity, as no advance enn be made up the
valley without the co-operation of their
troops as reinforcements. When they move
forward, if they do, I shall go with them,
perhaps before, yet that is somewhat doubt
ful, as the post commandants do not allow
those who desire to go forward, to travel
the Str.isburg road without an escort.
THB PACTS IN TIIE CASE.
I do not think that 1 am mnch of an
alarmist, but 1 believe I am justified in say
ing that I regard this section of the Na
tional army as being in n more precarious
situation than thnt of Any other division at
the present time. It is a known fact here
that Gen; Jackson has been str'ohglyreih
forced, and that he is now at Harrisonburg,
ready to fulfill his promise to the residents
in this section that he will again be in
their midst. They implicitly, believe him,
and' impatiently await his coining^ 'In
the meaotime, Gen. Fremont, with a worn
out army, bare-footed and in raga, has oc
cupied the best position he could secur;,
and, almost hemmed in by the river which
Sows by the side of Mt. Jackson, is await
ing supplies and an opportunity to recov
er his wasted strength. While this is be
ing accomplished,'the falling waters of the
Shenandoah are every day developing new
points at which they may be forded by the
Confederate army, all of which require the
establishment of artillery for their defense.
Other causes to which I might allude have
a most dispiriting iuflnence on the "Path
finder," against which, in his present crit
ical condition, it must be difficult to com
bat. His men are,' however, in good' spir
its, and ire willing to make s good fight ]
whenever the foe shall attack them. 1 '?
OEM. FKI1IONT AND GEN. JACKSON.
No one will deny that the commander of
the rebel forces in the Shenandoah .valley,
Gen. Jackson, is an officer of tireless ener
gy, and that he is, at the same time, pos
sessed of that natural sagacity which goes
so far .toward balancing a want of oth'er
requisites necessary to the character of a
good General. -'He has, howive'r/ bfcyond
these, & privilege not usually accorded-to'
minor officers, and ,ttat is, the power to
move his troops at,pleasure, bsslng every
action on a most intimate knowledge of the
country, and aotatall subject to |iny other
than a general order, as to bis operations.!
He is su rrounded by a people who are deep
ly interested in the success of the Southern
Confederacy, and all mean's which can be
made available are placed at his disposal.
On the other hand, Gen. Fremont is in
the midst of the enemy's country/hki unr l
der his command a-limited and drawn-out
force, the strength of which by existing
orders of those who, being at a distance,
further still, are but little acquainted with

TAIK WITH A SCOiaaiOHIST.
Tltfs morning I had a conversation with
a Secession lieutenant, who was taken a
prisoner, and is now at liberty on parole,
enjoying the limits of the goodly town of
Winchester. He Is ? well Informed, and,
with tho exception of his Secession pro
clivities, a well-behaved .youug tnao.
'?Is it the general, btliefr in your army
that Richmond can be held against JIc
Clellan.?" .
"No, sir, we know it must,(ail. That it
IB only ? question of time."
'.'With the surrender of Richmond, will
the war end them ?"
"No; for it will not surrender. The war
may end where it began, in this valley.
The first battle was in this valley, near
Hainesrille. , The last may be near that
point."
"Do yon expect to return, if Jaokson's
forces clear the valley?"
"Yes. He baa been reinforced, and has
now at least eighty-five pieces of heavy
wd effective anil lory.".
"How. is it, that the.Virginia regiments,
to one of which you belong, .have suffered
so little in late conflicts?",
'.'I do not know. We aro better men,
ind can beat any regiment in the United
states in a bayonet charge, except your
Dutch Western regiments; they can take
is."
"You moon Col. McCook's and "Wlllich's
nen?"
es. Wo remember Mill Springs and
;he fight at Mnnfordsville."
He "was frank Iq- his speech, yet hppar
intly honest in bis oa'iise, and had no lies
tatlon In expressing bis honest convie
:ions. I merely furnish his conversation
is a specimen of tho feelings entertained
>y Secessia, generally, In this region.
THK BXIXVORCIUINTS OP JACKBOW.
The best and most reliable scout* com
ng in from the advance, report that Jack
ion has been heavily-reinforced, and but
few of them get bis numbers at less than
birty thousand strong. The Secessionists
let down bis army at thirty-eight thous
and, with the large number of guns I have
nentioned.
The next question is, "Where have these
-einforcements coma from ?" In * former
ettor, I stated the belief was prevalent that
i portion of Beauregard's Corinth army
?as in the valley, but utter doe considera
ion, I am inollned to the belief that tbeso
lew troops are from the coast defenses,
vbicb are now thought to be almost wortb
ess in tho bands of the Rebels.
To carry troops from Corinth via Mobile
uid Charleston, would require almost
1,000 miles of transportation, while from
joints on the coast, wbieh are not threat
ened witli present attack, the distance is
ar less. One tblnfe is very certain, no
roops can be spared from* Richmond at
iresent, unless tho same farco enacted at
Hanassas and Yorktown is being played
iveragain for the benefit of the public, in
vhich case T can only aay that it is to a
nost distressedand anklons audience.
ACTIVITY Or (JEff. FBEMONT.
Qen. Fremont is said to be most tireless- |
v energetic in guarding against the ad
vance of the enemy on bis present posi
Jon. Every operation made to this end, is
inder his own supervision, he being per
lonally present to see that his commands
ire being curried out properly. He is at
ill times where he is most needed, and
mows no rest when It is requisite that bo
ibould be up and stirring.
A ruraor was in-town yesterday, that
lackson'a forces had attacked the advance
tickets and driven them in. The report
vas generally credited. If it was so I can
inly thlnk'it was for the purpose of finding
he whereabouts and strength of the "Path
inder." 1 think if bo meditates an attack
t will be?us in the former case?by a cir
mitous route, whiQb.will enable him to
itriko nearpr.tbe Baltimore and Ohio Rail',
vny, and perhaps thereby cut us all off
rOm any other escape than by tbe way of
Trout Royal and Washington.
Tbe weather bore is very hot, though
here are some indications ot rain.?
Scarcely a breeze is to be felt in the most
avored locations, And the shingles of tho,
louses blister in the noon-iday sun. Night
s a relief, when divested of clothing. One ]
tan.lay and dream of. the beauties he has

Next morning was foggy, but so soon ?i
it became clear enough lor sight, the.eoe
mj .could be seen advancing on our posi
tion,up tbe .rood aud along the bottom.
We fell io and formed on tbe road^and
two of our cannon on the, left, placed on
the edgp of a road, commenoed. shelling
the approaches to our position. V,e mov

Directly the forces down In the bottom, on

distinctly how the fight was gojug on?
Onr men droire tbesecesh back with,heavy
loss, and with sufficient force oonld have
whipped them to death, but the rebels
werq too many for us, as their reinforce
ments could be seen plainly coming up In
largo numbers. To counteract this, our
regiment were ordered down into the open
fields. . .?
; We Boon engaged tho euemy at w?c ritle
range. They could not stand this increased
fire, ,and divioiug the defenceless state of
our left, fell back from the bottom into the
broods, our-men closely chasing them, the
1st Virginia in the load. In less than five
minutes they made their appearance on our
left, in strong force,, under cover of the
woods, pouring a heavy fire into our men,
and charged and took our left battery of
two pieces. To . check this flank move
ment, which, had it been successful, would
have cut us all off, the 7th Indiana and 7th
Ohio marched up to meet this storm of
hail, and right gallantly they stood up to
the work. Tbe battery was retaken, but tho
rebels reinforced again aud we all formed.
under a heavy fire to fall back. This wo
did, starting in good order, but the enemy
threw tbe shell into us so heavy that no
line could be kept in order. The cavalry
made four or five charges on our rear, kil
ling aqd capturing several. Tbe order of
retreat was for the 29tb Ohio to cover the
rear. This regiment, was nearly all cap
tured and killed, or the rust scattered. This
threw tbe 1st Virginia into the rear. I saw
every charge they made. They had .one
piece of artillery with tbem and we had
several, but they had uot a single round of
ammunition. Wo felt back, rapidly twelve
milcB, when we met reinforcements, and
tbe secesh halted, Fremout having attack- j
ad them in the rear.
The forces engaged on our side were the ,
3d and 4tb Brigades, the tiret consisting of
tho 3d, 7th, 29th aud G6tb Ohio, about 21)00
strong: the Becond of the 1st Virgiuia, 7tb
Indiana, 8-ltb. andiaiPtb: tfennBylvania,
about 800 Btrong. We were pitted against
Jackson's whole army, about 35,000 strong,
nod how wo made the stand Wc did, is more
than 1 can tell. Our regiment went into
Sunday's fight 205 stroog, and when we
C3iint?d off in the ovening we numbered
1181 Sinoe then wo have picked up a good
many. and I am enabled to give you a fair
estimate of tho loss of Companies G and
B. I will give you the loss of the regi
ment in another letter. Co. B has George
Prather, wounded nud a prisoner, George
Taylor, Lagrange, James* Caball (from up
Buffalo), Tbos. Merryman and Joseph No
land misBing. Oo. G has Sam'l Callen
dine, J no. Adams, Wellsburg, and. Jolm
Edio and Daniel Kerr, Hancock county',
"'rZin the fight all through both day's
work. The only mark I bave is a scratch
from a piece of shell thrown Into my face,
which burst just at my left. The dirt and
dust blinded me so that I could,not see for
some time. ? A .piece of the, shell struck, a
sergeant just in front of me, Bhivering his
gun to pieccs and making oo ugly place.in
liis side. He was so close that I .couhj
bave put my band on him. ?

(Frum the New Orleans Delta.)
Soon after the^arrival of tho United.
3tates forces in this city they received in
formation that arms and tents were con
cealed in the house of Qne William T.
Hunter, who had sworn, be would shoot any
damoed Yankee wba*hsu>tf enter his bouse
to look for tbem. An; officer, in duo tune,
was sent for them. To his agreeable sur
prise, he was cordially received by tbe
owner of the house, who informed the offi
cer that it was true he had arms?a double
barreled.gun, an old uniform or two that
belonged to his sob, and a Bmall tent.whlcb
bad escaped tbe wreck of Camp LeWIs,
which was pitched In hi? garden as a play
house for hlB children, and tbat he had no
other such thing in his bouse. The officer
being satiBfieil with this frank avowal, said
be wquld not .disturb the teot, children,
uniforms or gun,\ Thereupon the. proprie
tor invited him to take a drlttk.
On the next day. Hunter proclaimed oo
'Change, or In his neighborhood that hi
bad a large quantity of tents in bis garret;
that the federal officer did not get them;
that he oould bqy the officer with a drink;
and further, that he could buy the whole
set with dripks, from tbe commanding offi
cer down., ,
This speech induced another examina
tion, which resulted in the finding oPMa
jor General Lewis's marquee, thirteen tents,
and more furniture in i Alt* Hunters attic,
and some pistols -and two , dirks m , Mrs.
Hunter's keeping. TfaU lady's nerves were
too sensitive to accompany the officerm the
search, and she^Irepted a negro woman to
sho* the.oOleeF, through the noose,

Upon removing ? the' Contraband articles'
to the railtoad station Mrs. Hunter: follow
ed, and rriftrmWthe office thit the negro
zirl had left the boose artd-wss intending th
?> away. The officer said thM 'could not
be permitted; and' Vent'ia corporal to con
dnet both women?*wtrite nod black to
their house, and artured Mrsi Hunter that
ther girl badi ixpresaed;intention or
Bured toe lady that no information 'had
been redsived from tbe xervents, aod they
ougbt nqt A# .bp punished.
I Bftt^momeuv , the. officer
girl was locked np to await the return of her
master. When Mr. Hunter returned tod

One neighbor gent intelligence of what
was transpiring to Gen. Butler. Before
word reached the Genera) the monster hitd
flayed the back of his:slaVe'until it boosme
raw?gashed down wiiU brine. threw her
into a wagon, and at nine o'clock at night
conveyed Ber to the parish prison, witb I
the pleasing information1 that the' rest of |
the heating?to the extent of Ihrte hundred |
laafui?would be inflicted in the uior
iDB- .?
The General ordered all parties in the
morhiig. They came, and the girl was
liberated. Upon : the. hearing these facts
appeared. The. General asked the master
to state, uppn his honor, why be washed
the girl's back in brine, while reeking in
blood. He replied,'"It was to ease the
pain." .1
Thereupon the General informed Mr.
Hunter that bo would be committed to Fort
Jackson until further orders', and that be
must behave himself very well thUre; be
cause the officers in charge would be in
structed to ohitBlise him severely if bo did
! not; because, if they exceeded in the se
verity of punishment; Ihfey would be in
structed to wabh his wounds in bride; and
that the ? girl wuuld be turned over at a
laundress, to the care of, the 13th Connect
icut regiment.
Mr. Hunter, upon this, said be had
brought in a physician to provi that he had
been sick - for a numtflrof months. The
General* -responded-* that if he -was well
enough to intlicC tlic'punishment that had
been proved,' he wns in a physical condi
tion to suffer tbe punishment which had
been imposed. Hunter .is u rebel, a tbirf,
(lor be had stolen the ienfs,) a liar, (for he -
had belied the officer who had been'sent In
search.l a brute, (for ho had whipped the
girl without cause.) And we leave liim in
