' W&-A Victim or Ukreqcittbd Affkc
tion?How Hk Dkmeaxed Himself IX HIS
ArrLicnoM.?A German lady who kept a
prosperous Iftger beer saloon in this city
bas for a long lime been engaged to a gen*
tleman of Teutonic extraction who drives a
air of mules and hiuls lager beer, and
who was very much devoted to the mistress
of tbe saloon aforesaid. On Wednesday
last the lady, much to tbe surprise of her
friends went to West Alexander and mar
ried a widower with two children, leaving
her saloon in charge of a bar keeper who
waa instructed to deal out the liquid of
Gambrinus generously and abundant!/ to
all friends on tbe important occasion. On
Thursday morning tbe driver of the mules
drew op in front of the establishment and
waa surprised to observe that there was a
sound of revelry- and a clashing of glasses
going on within. lie was informed of tbe
facts in tbe case but could not be in-1
duced to believe the truth until the car-:
riage containing tbe newly- married pair
stopped at tbe door on its return from Hard
Scrabble. Tbe driver of tbe mules waB for
a time apparently insane with rage and at
once proceeded to treat the whole assem
bled crowd several times, after which be
rushed out, jumped into bis wagon and
drove away at a furious rate. An hour or
so later tbe newly married folks, in compa
ny with some friends, drove out towards
St. Clairsville, but they had gone but a
short distance on the road when the mule
team with the insane d:iver and a wagon
filled with kegs of lager beer passed them
at a break-neck speed. Everywhere the
wedding party stopped the man of the
mules with a "glittering eye," stopped also,
and resumed toe system of treating which
be bad commenced iathe morning. He.tnade
everybody drink with bim from tbe abund
ance of bis stock, and when the party start
ed he managed to get ahead and kicked up
stifling clouds of dust. He thus lead the
advance as far as St. Clairsville, and when
the party started to return in the vain hope
that tbe mules were exhausted, all were
shocked to hear the fearful roar of tbe mule
team, the rattling of tbe empty kegs and the
yelling of the disappointed, in the rear. It is
said that the mule team passed the carriages
on the road no less than a dozen times much
to the alarm of tbe women and the amuse
ment of tbe men. The mule man bas beeo
driving through tbe streets at the same fu
rious rate ever since and the circumstance
bas been much talked of among tbe Ger
man population. He is supposed to have
become partially deranged in consequence
of tbe affair.
SGS~ TuK Pebkit System.?The letter
of Thomas lleaton, special Agent of the
Treasury Department, instructing the Col
lector of this port to "allow no goods,
wares or merchandise to be shipped on the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, unless ac
companied by a permit issued ftom the
Collector's office," has caused considerable
complaint among the merchants.
This action is in accordance with a law
of Congress and the regulations of tbi
Traisurj- Department. The restriction'
upon ibt shipmeot of goods are subject to
extention or reduction at the pleasuijof
the special agents of the Treasury Depart
ment, of which Mr. Healon Is one. The
add tional restriction to which Mr. Heaton
alludes, is made in conseqaenoe of the fact
that contraband goods have recently found
their way into the hands of the rebels.
The restrictions will, of course, cause
great inconvenience among the merchants,
and a meeting is called lor tbis afternoon to
take steps towards having the nm?, if pos
sib e, removed.
j?-Ste?udoatFibed On.?A member
of an Ohio regiment arrived in Cincinnati
on Tuesday, from Gnllipolis, and furnishes
the following:?We left Gnllipolis on
steamboat Olenwood Monday morning.
As we passed Hull's Landing, at 2 o'clock,
six miles this side of Guyandotte, about
fifty rebel cavalry hailed the boat It did
not stop, upon which they fired one volley
at the boat, whioh contained women, chil
dren and wounded. The fire was retur
ned by twenty-fivo Portsmouth Artillery,
who were armed with muskets. Several
shuts passed through the cabin. To day,
when opposite Foster's landing, at half
past three o'clock, a company of rebels,
about one hundred in number, were
drawn up in line, and as the boat passed,
poured a perfect hail of bullets through
and through the cabin, foro and aft.
About fifty Minie balls passed through
the boat.
a?- The Gbeat Feioht.?Since the
day*or Bull Run there has not been snch
? "big run" and "bewildering tramp" a*
occurred at Portsmouth, Ohio, on the riv
er. Oo Sunday afternoon, the impression
spread throughout the town that the rebels
were coming. Forthwith the belli were
tolled, crowds assembled, and companies
were formed and deployed along the Ohio.
Women, with quivering Hps, pale cheeks
and dishevelled locks, stood in groups,
terrified almostto insanity.
With nervous desperation a body of about
four hundred men embarked for Vance
burg, twenty miles below, where the rebels
were supposed to be. After a bold strike,
in which neither blood nor powder were
inrolred, some secesh were "bagged" at
that place, asd the Armada returned.

ernor Poltlej <?? in the city on Saturday.
He left Point Pl?M*ot on Wednesday?
When he left Col. LlgUtbarn was at tb?i
point, throwing up lome fortiScetioni, and
felt comparatively ieflure. The rebels on the
Kanawha are supposed to be about seven
thoasaod strong. It Is said that there are
at least a thousand wagons, some of them
from away down in Georgia, at Charles
ton, loading with salt. 8ome of the rebel
t soldiers opon reaching Charleston actually
bugged the salt barrels iu their delight.
A dispatch was received in this city on
Saturday night from Col. Ligbtfcurn, who
says be is threatened with an attack from
the rebels.
yjjfTa. Post Orrics Dkpartmiht has
received information from various sources
that certain persons presistently divert
postage sumps from their legitimate pur
pose by circulating them io packages to
gether with cancelled sumps aa currency.
Owing to this use of stamps the Department
is embarrassed in the supply for mail pur
poses; the public, therefore, are interested
in discountenancing their circulation as
currency. In all cases of the infract o I of
the law coming to the knowledge '.of the
Department, the parties will be prosecuted,
as it is a grave offense. This, of course,
bas no connection with the specially desig*
uated stamp currency.
BSy TaAiH Stoppid it Fiaa.?A day or
| two ago a train of cars on the Cleveland
Railroad was stopped for almost one hour
and a half, between Ravenna and Atwater,
by a fire consuming the immense piles of
railroad fire wood piled tip by the side of
the track. About six bondred cords were
burned, and when the oars arrived tbe
whole track was covered with fire. Tbe
train waited until the flames bad lessened
somewhat, when the windows were all
closed and the train dasbed through at |
high speed.

Jacksom, Tim., Sept. 6, 1962. /
Copt. M. J. Kimball, A. D C.:?
Sir: I have the honor to report tbe fol
lowing concerning the recent engagements
Along the line of the Mississippi Central
Railroad, lo tbe vicinity of Uedon station :
Immediately after the repulse of tbe ene
m7 at Bolivar, large horde* of bit cavalry
attacked tbe different detachment* station
ed along tbe line of tbe Mississippi Central
railroad, between Medon and Loone*g Sta
tion. The detachments being small, after
a sharp skirmishing, retired to Medon Sta
tion, at wbicb point and near tbe depot, a
barricade was constructed of cottoo bales,
under the direction of Adjutant Frobock.
At 3 P. M. August 31st, tho enemy attack
ed tbe defenses at liedon in force, estima
ted to be 1,500 strong, but were gallantly
I held at bay by 150 men of the-loib Illinois
Being informed of tbe attack. I immediate
I ly sent six companies of tbe 7tb Missouri
regiment by railroad to reinforce onr men.
Oo tbeir arrival, tbe 7th immediately form
I ed line and charged tbe enemy, driving
tbem from tbe town with considerable loss,
and takioga number of prisoners.
Tbe 30th Illinois was commanded by Ma
jor Warren Sbedd, 20th Illinois Col. Friz
bie, a section of two pieces of gunboat ar
tillery was commanded by Capt. Frost.?
Col. Dennis struck tents on August 3lst,
destroying such stores and baggage as be
was unable to carry, marched to within 12
miles of this post, when be was met by an
order from me, directing bitn to march for
Medon, to intercept tbe enemy near that
point. Dennis countermarched his com
mand. arriving in the vicinity of Denmark
that night. About 10 A. M. 1st September,
his advance guard reached the enemy in
strong force at Briton's Lane, near tbe
Junction of tbe Denmark at;d Medon roads.
Tbe enemy's force consisted of seven
regiments of cavalry, amouotiog to 5,000
men, under Brig. Gen. Armstrong. Tbe
aggregate of Dennis* force was but 800.?
Discovering be was outnumbered. Deunis
immediately selected tbe best positioo tbe
ground would permit and formed in line of
battle. Tbe greatly superior force of tbe
enemy enabled him to entirely surround
tbe command of Dennis, and early in tbe
engagement to capture bis transportation
train, taking with it teamsters, sick and
prisoners. Tbey also captured two pieces
of artillery.
During the engsgement tne artillery and
train were recaptured by Dennis. The
enemy made many determined charges.
Dividing their force and dismounting a
part, they attacked both as infantry and
cavalry, tbe latter charging so close as to
fall from tbeir horses almost within tbe
ranks of our men,
The battle lasted four bours, at tbe end
of which time tbe enemy left Dennis in
possession of the field, leaving 175 of bis
dead on the field, aod also a Inrge number
of his wounded. Total loss of tbe enemy
in killed and wounded, over 400. Loss ot

Rebel Accounts of the Battle at At
tietam.
Nkw York, Sept 26.?The Herald has
extracts from the rebel journals relative to
tbe late battles in Maryland. Tbe Rich
mond Enquirer claims the battle at Antie
tauj as a great rebel victory. It was di
rected by Lee in person, with 60.000 men
in his command. Bebel accounts makes
onr forces 150,000. Jackson commanded
tbe left of the rebel line, Hill the right, and
Loogstreet tbe centre. It is admitted that
our artillery was used with fearful effect,
and that upon tbe whole the battle was
tbe most severe of tbe entire campaign.
The followiu6 is a list of tbe command
ing officers killed and woond d in tbe en
gagement, Gen. Stark, of Miss., command
ing in Jackson's - division, killed; Brig.

ouslj: Brig. Wright, flesh wounds breas
and leg; Brig Gen. Armstead, in foot;

Maryland uniting ber destinies with tbe
South must now be banished. Tbe exper

adherence of tbe State Government and a
majority of tbe people to tbe federal gov
ernment is acknowledged by tbe Exprut.

rebel cause. Tbe same journal advoe*:rs

Railroad aod an attack oo Peirpolnt.
