It was thought by nearly all here that Morgan would attemnt the. ntnn rl this post: but he was wise, leaving fsn;. t o po'is fifteen or sixteen miles to the south, he passed on to Buffington's Island, where, he attempted to cross the river: there lie was met by one of our gunboats, and checkmated, but not until some 2X) of his men had succeeded in crossing the river. The gunboat delayed him some time, and General Jud.di who had been close upon him, since he crossed the Ohio now come up, and for the first time du ring a chase of over 500 miles the nolo"1 rious htnw thief' was obliged to meet our brave lioys in battle.

Iu this fight we lost several in killed and wounded, among whom w:is Maj. McCook, a noble patriot and a brave soldier. Escaping from our forces, Morgan pro ceeded down the river, at a distance of about 4 or 5 miles from it toward this place, until he came to a road leading in to the river at S mile Island, at a little town called Cheshire, he took this road, arriving at tho river soon after, he march ed his men lo the wafers edge, intending lo crosj 1,1 uil uazarUs. JUit luckilyjust.lt Ibis mnnient lo Sleni.,e f'o.,,l f above, and our Steamer from lelov ap peared in sight. He asked a citizen who stood near, what Boats these were. The man after taking a good look at them as if to satisfy himself in regard to them, replied "I reckon they are Gun Boats." The man reports that this was a hard blow on Morgan, he ordered his men up the bank behind the houses, and pulling off his hat and throwing it on the ground he said "Damn tho Yankees; I can't go to the river at 110 place but what Gve or six of their damned Gun Boats arewatch ing me." By this time we were up to the edge of the town, and were not aware that there was a rebel within fifty miles, and would not have known it until it was too late h.nl it not been for a citizen who ran down the river bank and gave us the alxrm. We immediately reversed the en gines and commenced backing, but the wind wis blowing a jierfect hurricane up stream and we made slow progress, at least it seemed so to us, and we tried to turn around, but could not owing to the wind. Finally we landed the boat on the Virginia side of the rim and two of u a ' went to the top of a small hill t loe by reconnoiter the position; we found proepects anything but flattering. Mor gan Km not long in discovering that were unarmed, and he mounted two hun dred of hia men and lie started down j river at their head to intercept us; could already see the lYeebooteis half mue oelow us. We instantly callea council of war, and we determined run the blockade at all hazards. We not proceeded down the river moie than two miles when we saw one of the But ternuts dressed iu citizens clothe: the waters edge, hailing us; in the mean time however, we protected the pilot house in case we were attacked, and hai our muskets (seven in all) put in fighting condition, for we all felt sure we would be attacked and we were not kept long i in suspense. 1 his rebel alter moving hat until he raw that we would not stoj aung out to us that there were ivliels be low and we had better turn back. Hut we kejtt on and when we got opposite them from one hundred and fiTlv two two hundred opened on us with Miiall arms, their cannon having been captured previously. They were completely con cealed until they commenced firing, then they raised up and we could see that the bushes were full of Gray Coats. We re turned their fire and it was kept up on both sides as long as we were within range, About fifty shots struck the boat, several ; passing through the cabin but no one was huil. We do iot know how many of our shots took effect, but a citizen that lived near by told us that he helped bury two dead Itelx-l-s the next day. All the while that this was going on our forces whom we afterwards learned were in Morgans rear, were gaining ujion him, and he was overtaken not more than half a mile from where we were attacked. Morgan was cunning as usual and suc ceeded in getting away again with about five hundred men. He did not pretend to fight but skedadled as soon as he found thai Gen. Judah was upon him; the bal anoo of his forces about ten hundred and fifty in number, after making a few ran dom shots, were gobbled up in a hurry by our brave lads, who had undergone all kinds of hardships and traveled over six hundred and ten miles, to give them a sound thrashing. Our boys were indeed a little surprised at their making so little show of resistance; they supposed that the Gray Bucks had found the last ditch and were resolved to die therein, but they quietly surrendered, to a force not much if any larger than their own.

He was then marched to the centre of the square, and stood steadily Ly the aide of his coffin, while the chaplain offered up a prayer. He then took seat on his coffiin, and after his head was covered he buried his face in his bands, to await the fatal mo ment. At a little before ten o'clock, the "Detail" at a distance of about fifteen paces, took deliberate aim and fired. The shots took effect, some of them mang ling the head, badly. He fell over to one side of his coffin, dead. Thus ends the existence of a traitor to his country. The troops were then marched past, for the purpose of viewing the corpse, which presented a horrible appearance. We hope the horrible scenes of the day, will be a warning to others. Lieut. S. M. Laird has been promoted to first Lieutenant. Sergeant Geo. Hurl- but, has been commissioned 2d Lieutenant J. W. Parker has been appointed first sergeant. Henry E. Haynes Las been appointed first sergeant, in Company B. first regiment Alabama Siege Artillery. The above promotions were satisfactory to all, and we believe the men will make good officers in their new positions. The health of the Battery is good; we have a daily field drill, which is quite un pleasant in warm dusty weather. The Battery is under good discipline and are well drilled, and only await the opportu nity to give a good account of ourselves. Yours Tiuly, LEWIS. Toning Down a Butternut. We learn from a correspondent, that last week a young man a resident of New Middletown went toEnon Valley and while there rendered himself extremely obnox ious to the citizens and several soldiers, on account of hia disloyalty. He proud ly and defiantly sported a Butternut, and informed the soldiers that it represented the sentiments of his heart. They, at last, politely requested him to remove the Butternut, upon which he commenced pouring out a torrent of invectives against the administration, the war, Ac, but was suddenly checked in his "mad career" by a "blue coat," who tore off his emblem of treason, and then procuring a rope gave him to understand that he must go the way of all rebels, or take the oath of al legiance. Concluding "discretion to be the better part of valor," he chose the latter. The affair bas naturally caused great in dignation among the Butternuts of Spring field. Six-shooters- and bowie knives are displayed in abundance, with numerous threats thrown in to give additional weight to their public- display of bravery!

Late in the night of the t'Jtii in-t.ini received reliable information that a well organized rebel force of cavalry and ar tillerv, supposed to exceed live thousand in number, underload ol' the notiiiiou.s Jonn Morgan, was about to enter Southwestern portion of our State. Avail ing myself of the power given me l y the Constitution and Laws, I at once, Proclamation, called out for tin- !e!'en.-e of the State, that portion of its organ ized militia forces residing within the counties supposed to be in danger. these organizations were only con-mnni by the election of company officer-' on the -4 tli instant, but few returns hud leen made; hence, it was quite iineeitain what the actual number embraced in the call would be. The route theeneniy would take was also uncertain. It was believed, however, that the capital i f our State was altogether the most attractive i oiut for the enemy. This point afforded richer field for plunder than anv oli.e: within his reach, and iu addition to thi: there was at t .imp 'base over I mat - and rebel prisoners, many of v horn, iiu-hidiiic his Chief-of-Sralf, had been cajdured iVmu .Morgan s band. Hence to IIil . point was ordered a binrer force of the militia lSi 1:1 to auy other. a.--e:ii- The other laiiuts named dr tin blauo ol the militia. outside of Cincinnati. were Camp Ileiinison, Chillicothe, I'oris mouth and Marietta. The response thecal), at all points, was most grati fying. With but verv few individual ex ceptions, the men called into service, for getting everything but dutv, promptly and cheerfully repaired to the camp., a signed them, and when en route for ca:i:-. while there, and when returning lo to.-,:- respecnve Homes, conIllctcl :iienie:ve. in a manner most creditable. Tho pcopie of the State should ever hold iu .'rati ill remembiauce the men who tints won o much character for our State. The lev. who endeavored to escape a full perfoi tu- ance of duty w ill be frowned upon and despised by all good citizens, aud this i the severest punishment that can be in flicted upon a fellow citizen. upon ana 1 he large militia lorce assembled near Columbus, kept the enemy from at'ernp ting an attack upon this place. Ail the other oints indicated for the assemblage of the militia, were felt of by the enetnv, and, but for their presence, would have been sacked and pillaged . from tli esc several points Luge num bers of the militia moved promptly out and participated with the Federal ioives in tlie numerous skirmishes and engage- ments that took place with the cnuinv : and in every instance, save one, behaved Willi great gallantry ana Lraveiv.. Ine exception referred to, was tlie surrender of about three hundred and fifiv, under command of Colonel Sonta of Colonel Sontag, near Ports- .'he men comprising this cor.l - all indignant at the conduct of mouth. T mand are all meir commanuig onicer, ana Me in no wise responsible lor the disgrace that at- t aches to the surrender Tl.e c.-inli:er. of Col. Sontag, although a volunteer oiiicer, without appointment orconiiiiLssion.siiali- be inquireal into. I am not now in .o. session of information which wool. I . n i ble me to do justice to all the ofliccrs in command of these various organizations. I can, however, bear lest!n;oiy lo the:l and efficiency of the several lniliUu v committees of the counties traversed l v the enemy; their services were invaluable to the State. When in posses-ion of full information, I will, ut a future day, do justice to to the many gallant officers. who so generously devoted themselves to the interests of the State iu this crisis. The enemy entered the State on the night of the twelfth instant, in the north west corner of Hamilton county, closely pursued by a large Federal force, and passing through the counties of Butler, Warren, Clermont, Brown, Adams, Pike, Jackson, Gallia, Meigs, Vinton, Hocking. Athens. Washington, ..Morgan, iUuskui gum Guernsev, Belmont Harrison, and Jefferson, was finally captured near New Lisbon, Columbiana county, this day, about three oclock. p. m. More or less skirmishing and fi'ditin" took place all' along the "route but the two principal engagements were near Buiiincton's Island, in Meigs county, on the 'nine-1 loATi t i ii win t f in 1 ia.. Si-a liiwn- ;iu ...; liimliino .ntini 1 1, w . ..... ; n ., ... ..;..i, t . ...... . "e o clock a. nt. At the lirst of these en gagements, our forces, consisting of cav alry and artillery force of regular troops, and of the militia there assembled, were under the command of Generals IIol-ou and Shackelford, aided materially by a naval force on the river at that point. At the second engagement, near Saline ville. our forces, consisting of the .th Michigan Cavalry, and our Militia for ces, were under command of Major j w ay. In the first of these engagements the enemy lost in killed, wounded and pris- oners, about twenty -five hundred : hi the second, about th hree hundred. Tho final ! leneral Shackelford look I an engagement, and em- surrender lo I place without braced Morgan himself and the remnant of his command, the number not now known. Thus was captured and destroy-4 ea one ot the most lormnlilile cuvulry forcesof the enemy, a force that has brea a terror to the friends of the Cuion iu Tennessee and Kentucky for aUmt two years. Well may every loyal heart U proud of the achievement. The losses on our side, have been tri fling, so far as numbers are concerned ; but I am pained to be compelled to an nounce that a few gallant spirits have been taken from us. Prominent among; the number is the brave Major HanieL McCook, the honored father of tho heroic: boys who bear his name, and who have, won so much glory and renown for our arms in this great struggle. Major Mc Cook, though advanced in years, has pei illed his life, as a volunteer, upon nianjr of our battle fields ; believing that ie. could be of service in lidding the State, of her invaders, he volunteered with hi trusty rifle as a private and fell in the en gagement near Biiffiugton's Island. His, memory will be cherished by all, and the sincere sympathies of all true patriots will be given to his widow and children. Throughout the entire contest I was in constant communication, both day and night.with Major Gen. Burnside, who had command of the entire forces: and I take great pleasure in testifying to the zeaK lidelity ana ability with which he has conducted the campaign. ihe damage to property will necessa rily be large in dollars and certts. but is insignificant when contrasted -with the beneficial results to our Stato an U. coun try. Prompt measures have been taken to ascertain the names of the sulVexrers, and the amount of damage sustainc d, -all of which will be communicated to the next General Assembly. Steps have ailso leeii taken to adjust and pay for aLl service rendered by the militia, ample -provision for which was made by the last Gcircral Assembly. And now, fellow-citizens, do not for a moment doubt but that this raid of Mor gan will ultimately prove a benef it to us as a people. It has taught an insolent foe, that however so well provided, or however so large, he cannot with impun ity invade our State. It has demonst rat ed to ourselves, that when acting in con cert the people of Ohio are a ioiver of strength remember, that our military ! . T.I i j W. ) ; . : .i I - by As i ted : a I . j '.

Another young lady, from Oliverburg. a Miss Hammond, noticing it, requested its removal. She. was answered by the first party, "that she wouldn't take it oil', and she'il like to see the individual that would undertake to remove it." Where upon Miss Hammond reached up and took away the obnoxious emblem. Noth ing further of moment passed between the two, but a number of gentlemen who saw the occurrence were so pleased with the crit of Miss Hammond, that one bought her a dress, another a pair of gloves, a third a photographic album, oth ers shoes and parasols, until she was lit erally laden down with presents.!

At half-past twelve Admiral Dahlgren signalled that ho was ready to bombard, and in a few moments the Montauk, (his flagship.) the Ironsides, the Calskill, the Nantucket the Weehawken, and fhe I'a tapsco moved into line in the order which I have named them, and commenced hurling their heaviest shot and shell around, upon and within the fort, ami, with intervals of but a verv few minutes. continued this terrible fire until one hour after the sun had gone down. During all the afternoon the iron fleet lav about one mile off from the fort, but just nt the close or the engagement, nnd but a few minutes before the first assault was made by General Strong, the Admiral ran the Montauk directly under the guns of Fort Wagner, and within 2S0 yards fired round after round from his 15-inch gun, sending as every shot struck, vast clouds of mud, sind, and tinil.tr high tip into the air. making one bilge sajid heap of that Mr tionof the fort facii.j? the sea, and dis mounting two of their lu-aviest guns. Deserters and prisoners tell us that Fort Wagner mounts thirtvc rilled guns of heavy caliber, but during all this furi ous liomhardment by land and sea she ondescendivl to reply with but two: tosjo upon the whole fleet of ironclads and one U-on the entire line of land batter ies. She may )ossibly have lired one shot to our one hundred, but I think ev en that numler is a large estimate. There were no casualties op in Montors or Ironsides, and but one man killed and one slightly wounded within the batteries, The firing was almost entirely from our own side. With the most owerful glass, but very few men could be seen in the fort. At half past two, a shot from one of our guns on the left cut the halyards , on the flagstaff, and brought the rebel i Hug fluttering to the ground. It was l ! saintly replaced by the red battle flag. j So i . made in the .o arrangements seem to have been for the assault until it was evident. e evening, that no tioinuarument would compel the battery to surrender. : The troops were then hastilv formed for : i i. t i. t . . : a ctiarge over an open beach lor a half i mile. General Strong was assigned the ! command of the 1st P.rigade. Colonel J Putnam of the 7th Xew Hanipshire.who, j although ot the regular army, ami con- sidered one of the best officers in the ser vice, had never led his men into battle nor been under fire, took command of the second, and General Stevenson the 3d, constituting the reserve. The 54th Mas- ! sachusetts. (colored.) Colonel Shaw, was j the aOvancea regiment in tlie 1st fongaae, '. and the 2d South Carolina, (colored.) Col. I Montgomery, was the last regiment of j me reserve. These brigades, as I have remarked be fore, were formed for this express duty. Many of the regiments had never seen their brigade commanders before : some of them had neqer been under fire, and with the exception of three regiments m I the first brigade, none of them had ever j been engaged in this form of attack.

Colonel Daniel, to make the attempt. Through the same .terrible fire he led his men to, over and into the fort, and for an hour held one-half of it, fighting every moment of the time with the utmost des peration, and, as with the 1st Brigade, it was not until he himself fell killed, and nearly all his officers wounded, and no re inforcement arriving, that his men fell back, and the rebel shout and cheer of victory was heard above the roar of Sum ter and the guns from Cumming's Point. In this second assault by Col. Putman's brigade, Col. Turner, of Gen. Gilmore's stalf, stood at the sido of Col. Putman when he fell, and with his voice and sword urged on the thinned ranks to the final charge. But it was too late. The Third brigade. Col. Stevenson's was not on hand. It was madness for the Second to remain longer under so deadly a fire, and the thought of surrendering in a body to the enemy could not for a mo ment be entertained. To fight their way back to the intrenchment was all that could lie done, and in their retreat many a poor fellow fell, never to rise again. i :x Ci.nni, IV.1 , ' ?e w,t swollen tieaas. mere wa 'errible fighting to get into the fort, i al"1 torril'I fighting to get out of it..

This re bellion had its existence to-day in the hope of having help here; and its sympa thizers at the North are more guilty for us continuance than Jeff. Davis is. Ap plause. It would have been put down U-fore to-day if a party had not arisen to r 'or peace, i hey say they are our brethren and must be treated kindly. Suppose thcr are our brethren ; what fil- i.o man wouia stand hv and see a desper ate brother madlv. i' imbrue his hands in tho blood of his mother ? We fall into Komnn degener acy, which permitted Tarquin to trample on the nation, if we fail to put down this rebellion. Let us remember the dark and trying days of the revolution, what this government cost, and then see what miscreant shall raise his hand against it. Benedict Arnold and all tho traitors of the past will stand fairer in the future than fie who shall attempt to destroy this government. " Mr. Dickinson drew a fine picture of iue greatness and happiness of this na tion before the d:uk and infamous trait ors at Washington hatched this rebellion, and with perjury in their hearts, plotted the destruction of the government they had sworn to defend. This .siilt of conspiracy, and not of rebellion. A short time since a mob held posses sioa of a great city,- doing deeds savages would be ashamed of, the opposing of just such doctrines as have been preached hi justification of this rebellion. He warn ed wealth that if they pandered to great and little iebellions, the ruffians would ride in bodies to their banks and counting houses and help themselves to what they wanted. He warned the merchants, far mers and mechanics, that this spirit of rebellion, which politicians are seekins to handle with furred mittens, will take their goods, their produce and their wares and compel them to pay for their support, unless they put it down at once. He would be doing himself and the cause in justice if he did not say that he felt his State to be disgraced when high officers of the State, from the Chief Executive :o a high judicial functionary, talk to a liiojj in mild and deprecatory language, instead of putting them down with a stro.ig hand. The only speeches he need make to such men would be made with shot and shell, ond the only messages he would scad them would be from the cannon. Applause. When he saw public ofiiceis-tamperihg-wftn mobs and addressing them, he thought there must be something wrong. He remembered a story of a couple of boys who had never seen a counsn, who went down to New buryport, and their aunt put on the table some nice nsii-oaiis. liiey didn't know what to make of them. One of them put uuc iu ui pocsei, ana when he got out of doors, ho took it out and looked at it, showed it to his brother, and asked him what it was. Neither could tell, but af ter breaking and tasting and smelling it. one said, "I can't tell what jt is, but I swear there is something dead in it." Laughter and applause. So it is with this matter. There is something dead in it something that wants ventilating. The preservation of the government is worth more than all that may be sacrifi ced to support it. Do we propose to stand by and see its sun go down before noonday, because of "Abolitionists ?" The great abolitionists are JefT. Davis & Co. Some great abolitionists have had monuments erected to them, but the ab olitionists should unite to erect a monu ment as high as heaven to Jeff. Davis t Co., who have abolished slavery at one stroke, iou might as well expect to have tJie deer and rabbits stay after the woods Law been cut way, as to expect itavery to remain after this rebellion. There is property that takes wiugs, and another kind that takes legs and runs away. It will not stay. Catholics. The Roman Catholics aro making their boasts that the Protestants are perishing before them, and that they, the Irish, are to possess the land. Especially in New England aro they claiming to begetting ahead with prodigious rapidity. The Bos ton Pdu, one of the Roman newspapers, declares that the "native stock of New England is rapidly diminishing." Ac cording to the "Birth Report," which it quotes, there were born in Massachusetts in LS0I, of American parents, lti.oyT chil dren, and of foreign parents, l(i,12o; leav ing a balance of 28 on the foreign side. We frankly confess that we were not prepared for such a result, and it occurs lo us as barely possible that the returns under the discipline of the Roman Cath olic Church may be more perfect than the others, and thus the result may be more favorable to them in appearance than in reality. But we know that a great pop ulation of foreigners, especially of Irish, is taking possession of Boston, and the churches long held by Protesants are pass-j ing into their hands. The Puritans go1 West and leave New England to new com ers: and Protestanism does not equal the zeal of Romanism in building and sup porting its institutions. It is so in New York, we doubt not it is so in Boston. Our system fails to develope, as it ought, the resources of the people for the prop agation of the faith. The 'servant girls' of the Romish Church give more money systematically to promote the Church than many of our rich people give. ! A Sadly Glorious Record. No regiment in the army has borno iu part in the war more heroically than the 1st regiment of young Minnesota, ft ar rived in Washington in time for the first Bull Run battle, where its loss was heavy. Since that time it has been in the Sedgwick division, through all the varying fortunes of the Army of the Potomac. It original ly numbered l,0ou men, and has had re cruits to the number of 040, and yet only eightif-seeen officers and men came out of the battle of 4ettysburg. When it went into that battle it had 220. But two offi cers in the regiment came out unhurt. The brigade to which it was attached went into that fight 2,100 strong, and came out with 400. Let history no longer point to "Soar- tan valor." or the men of Thermopohe for its examples of highest devotion and bravery. The records of the Army of the Federal Union, when fully narrated, will give as bright a lustre as the world's his tory contains.
