A portion of the gunboats and
mortar boats had proceeded to within
shelling distance of Columbus, and taken
up position on the Missouri side of the riv
er when a shot was fired from the enemy's
works, after which a flag of truce put out
and the rebel ofljeers went aboard the
flagship. '
The conference lasted an hour and a
half; but the results attained are not yet
known. It is sufficient that at the expi
ration of the time the flag ship signalled
the fleet to return. It seems probable
that the rebels have agreed to evacuate

The 24th Ohio Surprised-Agreeably.
From private letters from Major A. S.
(uow in command of the 24th Ohio
Regiment) to Lieut. Chas. R. Harmon,
we make the following extracts. The
sirsi tetter is dated "Camp near Green
River, Ky., Feb. 11."
Wo broke camp at "Wickliffe" on the
first dawn of the 7th, and in 60 minutes
from the "enuale" the 10th Brigade was

' their march for Green River. It wes a

-She is now emphatically her self again,

for soldierly bearing. About five miles on
the road Gen. Nelson and Staff, had with
out notice to any of us, posted themselves
for review as we passed. The 24th com-1

ttnee you left, the Regiment has -been
most perfectly "surprised." ' ' One day at
Camp Wickhffe, juirt at the 'conclusion of
.dress parade; there came without the least
notice, galloping upon us, s squad of
iDounted mn, led by our somewhat noted
character, Jaoab Ammen, andpounced
't onr upon our "centre," and presented
us with the most beautiful flag in the ser-
ie embroidered with the highest art, it j
ooat $10G, dark blue, gold embroidered

said: "We are about to advance upon the
"enemy, and I have selected you as the
"truest and most reliable defender of the
"honor and glory of our arms. As a token

exposed to the tactics and strategy of or

we have been able to keep ourselves true
to the motto we had adopted. But to-day

four-horse concern in comparison to this

were informed that Poindexter, a noto
rious rebel, was stationed within a few
miles of the line of the road, and we migh t
possibly have trouble. Amunition wss
freely distributed, and we were finally off
for Our next stopping place, Hudson.
Our train was composed of something ov
er forty oars, and was drawn by two en-
gines. About 11 P.M., the train-broke
in two, in the middle the first half go
ing on about an hour bofore-they found i
out their loss. And aCain about 2 in the I

first actual service in the way of patrols,
parties of reconnoisance, and foraging.

and luxuriant. Its chief products are

married man's heart good, to see them
weep over the memory of the virtues of
the dear departed. It was always a settler,
though, to this weeping feminine gender.
when some inquisitive individual .would
enquire what particular disease had tak
en off the defuncts.
We bave since found that some of these
lacrymally inclined widows were mourn
ing husbands who had departed for the
Southern army instead of "Kingdom
come." On the 27th, Co. "C" Capt. Bur
nett, moved out and took possession of a
large oricK mansion aoout a mile irom
the city, owned by Gen. Doriss, a former
member of the Missouri Senate, a Slave
dealer, a millionaire, and now a traitor.
Upon the approach of the Union army he
collected together his human cattle, and
fled to Arkansas, where he has since been
stayingor Ait health.
Before the Union forces came into this
county it was very hard work to find a
Union man, now its a mighty sight harder
to una a seoesn. A more sycophantic,
crawling, absequious set of scoundrels you
never saw. The balance of the regiment,
as it arrived by squadrons, was quartered
in and around the aforesaid city, in good
comfortable houses. Co. D (Capt. Cald
well,) is now quartered about five miles
east of here on the Parkwelle road, and
has been very active in gathering up the
loose Forage, 4c, of absent rebels in that
vicinity. Two members of Capt. C's com
pany, Khodes and Ceo. Prindle,)
died this week. We are happy to be able
to state that our asst. surgeon, (Dr. Smith
of Warren) is looked upon by every offi
cer and soldier in the regiment as a broth
er and a modfcl of kindness and attention.
God speed the day that he may have the
entire control of our hospital and sick.
Xhe health of the regiment at present is
not the best, some Measles, and many of
the men suffering from severe colds and
disorders incident thereto.
Our sojourn in this place has so far been
a very pleasant one, and our regiment will
leave here with the good wishes end re
grets of many if not all of the citizens, and
I may softly say many of the fair sex, also.
The monotopy of our every day routine
was very pleasantly broken by Col. Doub
leday's presenting in behalf of the non
commissioned officers and soldiers, (of this
regiment,) to Lt.-Coh Ratliff a beautiful
and oostly sabre.- No man in the regi

They pounce down upon a peaceful farm

Concerning our guns I need only say
that the only two trials to which we were
able to subject them while in Camp Den-
nison, we done better shooting than was
done by the whoe winter's practice of CoL
Barnett's Artillery Regiment. The Col.
showed his appreciation of their superiori
ty byat once making a requisition for the
same Kind ot guns to supply ins only un

place here to state that the best firing was
done by George Harsh, of AVarren, the
gunner of the 12 pounder, on the right
flank. Though every shot did not strike
the target nearly a mile distant yet all
would have done execution even upon a
single of the enemy at that distance.

one-half were wholly unfit for duty. One

very umo ui importance transpired in con
nection with the movements of the 20th,
lurtner man its usual daily routine of
guarding batteries that have command of
the approaches to Cincinnati, Covington
and Newport. So long have we been en
gaged in guarding batteries, that we found
we were not to have a hand, directly,
in lifting from the dust the emblem of our
nationality, and we had become almost
"Spoiled for a fight." On the 11th inst.,
we received marching orders to go to Pa
duca, Ky., which was to us "tidings of
great jry, making the tCj; plmost crazy
with delight. At 8 o'clock, eight compa
nies were on board the steamers Dr.
Kane and Emma Duncan, (one company
being down the river at Warsaw, and one
left in Cincinnati, to guard the batteries
for a few days until relieved,) and start
ed down the river. We stopped at War
sawand took on board the company that
was there, and at 6 o'clock P. M., on the
13th, we reached Paducah. Our trip thus
far was a very pleasant one. On arriving
tnere, our loriner good leeiings were very
much elated to find an order to ioin Gen.
Grant's division in an attack on Fort Don-
elson, about 120 miles Tronr Paducah, up
the Cumberland river. That night, at 12
o'clock, we started, and at 5 o'clock. P.
M., Friday, we reached the vicinity of
fori uoneison. ine engagement had
already taken place, the day before we
arrived, (Thursday) at 4 o'clock. P. M..
and when we came up, four of our gun
boats were playing sharply upon the reb
el oanenes, ana ine shot ot the rebel
guns were lighting in the water closely
where we landed. Saturday morning we
started to the scene of action, our position
being on the right of the right brigade,
commanded by Colonel McArthur. We
reached our position at 10 o'clock, A. M.,
having performed a circuitous march of 10
miles. Soon after we arrived, the wound
ed of troops engaged early in the morning
commenced coming in. They were hor
rible to look at, by one unaccustomed to
witness the horrors of a battle-field. At
11 o'clock, A. M., there was a general en
gagement of gun-boats, batteries, and sev
eral regiments of infantry, making one
continued roar of artillery and musketry,
which lasted for -one hour.. We were
drawn up in line of battle, expecting eve
ry moment our turn would come next.
The shots whized through the air about
us, but fortunately none of us were hurt.
The boys of the 20th, were as cool as if on
dress parade. AVe remained on our arms
all night anxiously waiting the signal to
begin. To our surprise, the next morn
ing the intelligence came that the Fort
had surrendered. The forests for miles
around rang with deafening applause
from the thousands of soldiers who were
gathered for a hand in the conflict. It
was a hard fought battld, but a most bril
liant achievement, a victory that has no
precedent in American history, The reb
el forces numbnred from 11,000 to 20,000,
under Generals Pillow, Floyd, Johnson,
and Buckner. Only about half of our
forces were in the engagements. We had
on Sunday morning in the field, 40,000
troops, with a reinforcement of 17,000 on
tho way up the river. Johnson and
Buckner surrendered, with 12,000 troops
prisoners of war. Pillow and Floyd, with
the balance of the rebel forces escaped
the night before. We have all the arms,
equipments and stores, of those that sur
rendered. The killed on each side is be
tween 300 and 400, and the wounded on
each side 500, as near as I can judge.
The wounded are not many of them fatal.
Nearly all the killed of the rebels were
shot either in the eye, or near the centre
of the forehead.
The 9th and 41st Illinois, and the 31st
Indiana, suffered the most of any of the
regiments engaged. We have lost in the
killed several prominent company field
officers. We are now on the way to St.
Louis with the prisoners, our regiment
being one to guard them to their desti
nation. Co. A and H ore guarding prisoners.
They are poor miserable looking objects,
without uniform, the most of them, and
poorly clad, and their blankets are most
ly pieces of carpeting. The prisoners are
mostly Tennessee and Missisippi troops,
and a, majority of them appear glad to get
out. of the rebel army, and many of them
have told me they were anxious to take
the oath of allegiance. Very many of
them were drafted soldiers, and were forc
ed into rebellion contrary to their wishes.
Shortly before we left Cincinnati, Capt.
Powers resigned and returned home. Lt.
Wm. Rogen of Co. A, takes the command
of the company by Seniority of rank. He
is trom Knox County, Uhio.
On Sunday morning last, private Dan'l
R ili'at, by n accidental dischargo or
his gun, nearly snoi vu i"
forefinger of his left banJ. The !Uer
was amputated at tne knUCKie joiut.
Thomas Gillmore and Wm. Ohl, of Trum
bull Co., have been unwell for some time,
Cut are with us, and are slowly improving.
We3lev Craig and Alex. Longmore, of
Wamn, and James J. Stanlv, were left
at the general Hospital in Cincinnati.
They are well rared for and were recover
ing when we left. The company has been
remarkably healthy since we left Cincin
nati. We are all of us badly in want of
some pay, and earnestly hope Uncle Sam
has not forgotton us.

Fredfrick, Md., Feb. 19.
On Saturday night, at a complimentary
dinner tendered to Hon. Charles J. Faulk
ner, at Martinsburg, Va., that gentleman,
in a speech, said in effect, that the policy
of secession, as it had been carried out,
was a failure. It had been accompanied
with an unnecessary waste of life, the
best blood of the South, and immense
sacrifice of property. If this course was
continued in it would pile ruin on ruin.

Mecca Correspondence.
MECCA, February 24th, 1862.
Messrs Editors: Allow me to notice
through your paper the events of tho
week. Donations are becoming the pre
vailing topic, two have been given respect
ively to the Rev. Mr Higbee, pastor of the'
Free Will Baptist Church, and the Rev.
Mr. Arnold, pastor of the Congregational
Church. At the first . a bounteous table
was spread of "good things," a large
company waa present, cd judging from
actions all were delighted. The report
of the receiver showed a sum of forty-five
dollars donated.
The second held at Attic Hall was a
brilliant success; joyous faces were met
on every hand. The well spread table
showed the taste of the Mecca ladies.
Secession "played out," was finely illus
trated by two pyramids. The one a beau
tiful genuine article finely decorated and
bearing the glorious flag of the free and
brave. The other an equally fine looking
pyramid and equally well decooated save
the beautiful bright colors of our "fri
colors. But come to search the interior
the latter only produced a "wad" of Cot
ton, and our flag was made to float above
it. The genuine was presented to the
Rev. Mr. Arnold. Speeches were made
by various of the literati, and music was
furnished by the" Large Family.
On Thursday Eve., Attic Hall was
filled with the lovers of music to hear the
Large Sisters, as they should delight the
audience with sweet and melodious tones.
However much the audience may have
expected, they were not disappointed.
"The Sword of Bunker Hill," "Old
Shady," . and "I Never Saw a Woman,"
sung by request of the ladies, were the
favorites. The second named had a moral,
peculiarly adapted to the exciting topic
of America. Mr. Large was invited to
renew his entertainment on Saturday
Eve., with which he complied and kindly
offered to donate the half of the proceeds
to the "Soldiers Aid Society." Of course
the liberal offer was joyfully hailed by the
ladies,. whose treasury was by the recent
demands more than drained. Saturday
night came and with it a Church full of
the admirers of music. Again they were
delighted beyond their expectations.
"The Union foreverfor me" was performed
by Miss Low, as performed by Miss Adda
Webb, with brilliant success. "Billy
Grimes the Drover" was finely executed
by Miss Mollie.jind on the whole the
entire performance was a success.
Should your readers have an opportu
nity they will find the morals contained
in Mr. Largo's selections and the fine taste
with which they are performed, are abun-
dent reward for their money and
time in going to hear them, while the
delightful sensations produced in the
mind the musicians will be an extra
inducement for attending. .
Truly yours, CASE.
Washinuto-V, Feb. 20. Hocse. The
House took up the report from tLe Com
mittee of the Whole on the Senate's
amendments to the Treasury Note bill.
All the amendments to the Treasury
Note bill were acted on. The amend
ment making the interest on the notes
payable in coin was agreed to.
The amendment pledging the lands.
duties and proceeds ot rebel property to
the redemption of the interest and prin
cipal of the debt was rejected.
The bill goes back to the Senate again.
The Post Office appropriation bill was
up in Committee of the Whole.
Among the more important amend
ments to the Treasury Note bill agreed to
are the following :
The notes to be received in payment of
all claims and demands of every kind ex
cept for the interest on the bonds and the
notes, which shall be paid in coin the
vote on this was, yeas fi.S, nays 55 ; author
izing theJSecretary to dispose of the bonds
at any time at their market value for
coin, or for any of the Treasury notes
heretofore or hereafter- to be issued, or
for notes under thi3 act.
The House agreed to the Senate amend
ment authorizing the Secretary of the
Treasury to receive the notes on deposit
for not less than 30 days, in Bums not less
than one hundred dollars, certificates to
he issued therefor, 4c This, however,
was amended by the House, so as to in
clude deposit of coin, and changing the
interest to that which the Secretary may,
from time to time, prescribe, not exceed
ing six per cent. The Bill again goes

The Military Committee reported a bill

Senate. The Senate passed the army
appropriation bill for 1502, and then went
executive session.
Hocse. The Homestead Bill as report
ed from the Committee on Public Lands
is coming up, the question pending being
to re-commit the same with instructions
to report instead the Bounty Land War
rant Bill. Mr. Grow called Mr. Washburn
to the chair, and, taking the floor, spoke
against the motion. Five times within
the lasi ten years the House had passed
a bill similar to ibis, and by two-third
votes, when parties were nearly balanced
on nearly every other question. A Bid,
too, of like character had passed the Sen
ate. He answered the objection that the
public lands should be retained as a
source of revenue. Mr. Grow argued in
fivor of giving homesteads to actual set
tlers. Speculators should no longer be
permitted to intervene between the Gov
ernment and actual tillers of the soil.
Those who had flocked to -the standard of
the country are deserving of more sub
stantial reward than tears to the dead and
thanks to the living. He earnestly ap
pealed to the. House to pass the Bill ancM
consecrate J;he public land for homes to
actual settlers who prospered in life, that
they may be enabled to develop a higher,
better and nobler civilization.
