Collection of Taxes. The Treasurer of
this couuty, up to last evening (Saturday, July
20), had collected on the last ball year's dupli
cate of taxes a sum total of $100,570
The Treasurer will commence returning the
township duplicates to the County Auditor to
morrow (Monday, July 22).
Owing to the Urge amount of taxes yet un
piid, tbe Treasurer will continne to receive the
taxes due in this city for a few days of this
Tbe amount of taxes collected on the June
Davmeot of last tear, was about $93,000, The
delinquency of tbia year will probably be five
or six thousand dollars greater than that of last
Considering tbe tightness ot the times in rc
gard to money matters, the Treasurer thinks he
has made a good collection. Tbe grand dupll
cate for 1860, lor all purposes, is about $42,000
ereatcr than was that for 1859. TbiB shows
that, although the grou amount of the delin
quency will be greater this year, it will not
proportionally vary muota from that of 1859.
The First Sunday inn the Proclamation.
This is Sunday. Thirteen weeks or just
three calendar months ago, was the first Sun
day after the issuing of the President's procla
mation CAlliog for volunteers. It was an event
ful day that Sunday, April- SI, 18CI. These
are some of the events that make that day
The railroad between Philadelphia and Balti
more was taken possession of by the U. S. Gov
ernment; Giottoc .Wiluam Brown, Mayor of
Baltimore, had a consultation with the Presi
dent of tbe United States in reference to the
passage of Northern troops through Baltimore)
Worcester, Mass., Third Battalion of Rifles ar
rived at New York j a mass meeting of citizens
numbering many thousands, was held In Boston,
Mass.; the First Regiment of Rhode Island
volunteers passed through New York, Gover
nor Sfracue accompanying them; the Sixth,
Twelltb. and Seventy-First Regiments of New
York State militia left. New York; tbe U. S.
branch mint at Charlotte, North Carolina, was
seized by the State authorities; In nearly all the
churches in New York, and generally through
out the country, war sermons were preached;
the Fifth Regiment of Massachusetts militia,
with the Boston Flying Artillery Company, left
Boston; a meeting of Californians was held In
New York to take measures for tbe formation
of a California Regiment; and tbe burial of the
American Hag was celebrated at Memphis,
, Such is the record of a siDgle Sonday in war
times. But it is a .bloodless record. The
forces on both Bides have been actively prepar
ing during the past three months for the work
ol carnage and death. Many great battles
have been fought on Sunday. It seems as
though the demon of war delighted In doing his
horrid work on tbe day sacred to rest and piety,
ilow many hundreds or thousands of our coun
trymen and friends may bo horribly mangled or
s'ain outright on this day we know not. But if
an engagement should take place, may the God
of Battles, grant that the Flag of the Union
shall wave In triumph over the field of carnage!

Wh Don't You Advertise? The Cincin

"To business men who are oomDlaintnir of
dullness of tbe times, we address these few re
marks Why don't yon advertise? It Is lust
tbe thing to help you out of your difficulties
to brlni you oath customers and plenty of pat
ronage, In tl-nes like these It Is tbe cash rjur-
chasr$ that read the advertisements, to cost
tbemsalvea where to get tbe best bargains.
There is no mistake about It it is no humbug.
If you can offer the public any advantages to
make their purchases of yon, lose no time to
inform them of tbe fact. Do not lament over
dull tianes. Stephen Girard always embraced
that opportunity to extend his advertisements
during dull times and a revulsion in business.
He said, "where so many tightened their nurse
strings, and ceased advertising, he took great
pains oo extena Die in a very Judicious manner,
and inform tbe publio that be was still prepared
to offer them good Inducements. In some
eases, after a man has ordered his advertise
ments to be discontinued, we have heard tbe
question asked whether such person has not re-
tirea irorn easiness! mere is nothing unreas
onable about such a question in times like the
present. It contains more truth -than poetry.
Cash buyers consult advertisements more tban
you may think."

arrived from Parkenburg yesterday, bringing
the latest intellleence from the Kanawha River
The reports being somewhat contradictory, we
give tbe statements of both loyal and rebel
Cant. Hush Camcbell, of tbe government
transDort steamer Mary Cook, who came pass
eager in the Dunlelth, reports that a severe ac
tiou took place on Thursday afternoon, between
the rebels and the Federal troops under Colonel
Lowe, of tbe 13tb Ohio Regiment, and seven
oomDaniea of Col. Norton's reelment. Cant
Campbell did not learn any satlsiactory details,
but states that our troops exhausted alt their
ammunition, and retired, alter severe loss, with
their two field nieces. Tbe Federal fleet was
lying below Pocatelia creek, and the action took
place at "Soarey," some distance in tne into
rior. It appears that our troops were sent out
with orders to make a reconnoissance, but cot
to attack the enemv. who were in a strongly
entrenohed position, numbering 1500 strong
uoless it appeared tbe position couia do easny
Cant. Camcbell reported that Col. Norton
was aeverelv wounded, while eallautly encour
sginz bis men to oharge, and he wag left on tbe
Hem and capture ! ny tne enemy.
The extent ot our Iobs is not xnown, out we
Infer that it was quite serious. The enemy
also suffered severly. Col. Lowe sent back dur
ing tbe action for ammunition, and Gen. Cox
seut it forward with reinforcements, but our
troops were met returning from tbe field. Lt
Pomeroy, of Oltowa, O , was mortally wound
ed, and he was Bent to tbis city on the steamer
Dnuleilh, but he expired at Galllpolis. One
private in tbe cavalry company which forms
part of Uen. Cox s brigade, was killed. Col
Woodruff and Lieut. Uul jNell, ot tne Xi Ken
tucky Regiment, and Major Ve Villiers, of the
bih Ohio, were at the engagement as spectators,
and when Capt. Campbell left Pocatelia creek,
twenty bours alter tbe coLUict, tney naa not re
turned. The inference Is strODg that tbey were
taken prisoners, and we are alraid our troops
met with a severe reverse. Uapt. Campbell re
ports that they fought gallantly and did not re
tire until their ammunition was completely ex
Capt. W. O. Rosebcrry, who it will be re
memoerea was arrested ai ri. neasanc, va.,
and taken to Columbus, Ohio, but subsequently
released, being charged with a sympathy witb
the rebels, was also among tbe passengers by
the steamer Duulietb. Tbe followiog is bis
version of the conflict:
On tbe 17th, Gen. Cox ordered the 12th Ohio,
Uol. Lowe, two companies ot tbe iUst (Jbio, to
gether with tbe Cleveland Artillery and Cant
Rogers oavalry company from Ironton, Ohio, to
cross tbe Kanawha river at the mouth of Pokey
Creek, twenty miles Deiow cnariestoo, and re
connoitre the rebel camp five miles above, on
tbe south side or right baud bank of tbe Ka
oawba, three miles below the mouth of Coal
river, and to cannonade and draw them out in
order to estimate their force, and, if easily cap
lured, to take their batteries, the enemy being
fortified. When within three hundred yards of
the battery, tbey were fired Into by rebels un
der command of Col. Tompkins, from three to
five pieces of artillery, when a general engage'
ment ensued, lasting about two bours, when tbe
rebels were reinforced, and tbe Federal troops
oompelled to retreat. Col. Norton, of the Slat
Ohio, was wounded, shot in tbo hip and taken
prisoner; Capt. Allen killed ball In tbo fore
bead, justbetween tbe eyes; Lieut. Pomeroy was
shot through the hip. He died oa tho Pnuleitb,
when tbe boat was near uallipolis. ihe re
mains will be forwarded to bis home In Ottowa,
rutoam county, Ubio, to day. Lieutenant rome
roy and Captain Allen were in Company B,
xist umo, Colonel nor ton. uunog tne engage
ment, Col. De Villiers, 11th Ohio, Col. Wood
ruff, Lieut. Col. Nell', and several Captains, of
tbe ii Kentucky, mounted, rode up opposite tbe
scene of action, and had not returned to their
camp up to 13 M. , on the ldih inst. The rebels
were renortea to De lauu llrone. previous to bp
ing reinf orced. A flag of truce had been sent
out by the federals, asking the privilege of visit
ing the rebel oamp to gatber the dead and
wounded. Petitions were also sent from Pt.
Pleasant, signed by Capt. Roseberry, and other
prisonors, recently iu cbargo of Capt, Norton,
asking the privilege to bring the Colonel back
wno was reputed wounaea.
Lieut. Pomeroy, of Company B, Slst Ohio
Regiment, who was mortally wounded in the
battle, and brought on board the steamer Dun
lelth, received every attention from the officers
of the boat, tie died as tne boat was Bearing
Uallipolls. ' 1
A gentleman who was in the engagement, and
whose character and rank are sufficient guar
anties of the correctness of his statement, gives
us tne . louowing version ol tne asair on
Wednesday afternoon.
The lia Ohio and parts of two companies
of tbe Slst, started to oapture a battory at tbe
moutn ot acarey creek, aoout tnirteen miles
from Cbarleatown. Tbe battery was supposed
to be supported by about 700 men. Wbea we
reached the bill where the battery was planted,
the rebels opened fire upon us from two piece
of artillery. . We had also two pieces, and tear
ing down tbe fences, the guns were placed in
position, and our forces wheeled into line on tbe
brow of tbe bill in such a manner as to bricg
our fire to bear upon the enemy, wblle we had
partial protection from theirs by a fence on the
top of tbe bill. -
We were seriouBly annoyed by a flanking fire
on tbe river, and also trom a large log bouse on
the bans ol tbe creek. Vetachmeuts or two
companies of tbe 31st and two companies of tbe
l.b, obarged upon tbe bouse and routed tbe
rebels at the point of the bayonet. Tbey re
treated across tbe creek, oovered by the fire of
their own men fording it, as they had previous
ly burnt the bridges.
in tbe meantime our artillery naa silenced
their battery, entirely destroying the carriage
of one pteoe, and our boys twice silenced tbe
fire ol tbeir Infantry. At tbis Juncture tbey re
ceived reinforcements (tbeir force was nearer
1,500 tban 7UO at the outset), and our boys
had completely exhausted tbeir ammunition.
Tbey therefore commenced a retreat, in good
order, so soon as they bad got beyond tbe range
of the rebel's single re-mounted piece, reseir
ing tbeir last single snot in tbe cannon for
any emergency, should the enemy attempt a
pursuit. ' ' ' '
in tbis manner tne retreat was kept up tin
we fell la with the balauoe of the 31st Ohio,
uoder Col, Nibleyi the boys were then so ex
hausted, having fought for three hours, and ex
hausted every round in tbeir cartridge boxes,
that the attempt was given over, r
Uur Intormant puts tbe loss on our side at 4
killed, S mortally wounded, 3 missing, aqd 17
or 19 more or leas seriously wounded. Of those
Instantly killed were Capt. Allen, Co. IJ, and
Geo. Blue, Co, K, Slst. Lieut. Pomeroy has
since died of bis wounds. One man bad bis
hip torn away by a oannon ball, and must die.
Capt. Bloan of the 12ih was wounded, but not
dangerously. Tbeae were all tbe names be
eould recall. Col. Norton was supposed to be a
prisoner. He had been wounded aud taken to
a bouse a fourth of a mile from- the hospital,
but tbe guard placed over him bad been oallod
off to take charge of some prisoners taken dur
ing the engagement, and he was seen, or some
one supposed to have been blm, in the band of
tbe rtbe. ..-.
The painful bews that Col. Woodruff and
Lieut. Col. NefT, of the 2d Kentucky, and Col.
De Villiers, of the 11th Ohio, bad been oaptured
while reooonoiterioe. needs confirmation. Thev
bad left Gen. Cox's earns to ascertain what was
going oo, at tbe time el the fight, and bad not
returned wnen our Informant loft, tboucb, Just
as ine noat was pusning out. us beard tbe Doys
in oamp give three cheers, and saw some one
that be took to be OaU W., riding Into camp -
It is not uoirequent tnat omoers on reconnoiter
lnf ' expeditious remain' out for a considerable
time lunger than they anticipated when setting
out, and tbe friends of these gentlemen should
not be nooasy about them, al least until further
intelligence arrives,

Another source reports the work was carried

St. Louis, Mo., July 19ib, 1861.
To tho People of North Mittovri:
By Virtue of tbe proper autborityul have as
sumed command in North Missouri. I appear
among you with a force strong enough to main
tain tbe authority of the Government, and too
strong to be resisted by any means in your pos
session usual in warfare. Upon your own as
surances tbat you would respect the laws of the
United states and preserve peace, no troops
have hirberto been sent into your section uf
a be occurrences ot tne last ten days, how
ever, have plainly exhibited your lack either of
tbe power or inclination to fulfill your pledges,
and tbe 3overoment has therefore found it ne
cessary to ocoupy North Missouri with a force
powerful enough to compel obedience to the
laws. ! j. . 'J , '
So soon as it Is made manifest -you will re
spect its authority and put down unlawful com
binations agaioBt it, you will be relieved ol tbe
presence ot tbe foroes under my oommand, but
not until then. . ... ? - , ...... ...
I therefore warn all persons taken In arms
against the Federal authority, who attempt to
commit depredations upon publio or private
property, or who molest unoffending and peace
ful citizens, that tbey will be dealt with in tbe
most summary manner, without awaiting civil
