That will do for him, The Journal threatens us with Its heavy guns, and wliat the evening scullion left obscure, the morning wiseacre will clear up on the subject of governing Columbus by Army Regulations. Dreadful disclosures may be expected. Delivered to Military Authorities. The person at whose instance Windsor Shoemaker, the notorious thief was arrest ed; refusing to appear against him, he was handed over to the military authorities as a deserter. Ho has jdeserted from several different regiments, and the military au thorities were anxious to secure him. He also boasts of having enlisted no less than a dozen times during the war. Ho Is now in close confinement awaiting trial by court martial. Death of an Old Citizen. Daniel Wright, aged seventy-three years, died at his residence near Dublin on Wednesday morning, after a brief illness. Mr. Wright was the father of Jas. E. Wright, attorney, of this city. He was well known and gen erally esteemed in this county as an lntelll gent, Influential citizen, and his death, even at the ripe old age at which it occurred, is sincerely mourned by a host of friends. iOR THK Jt RONT IN JiARNKSTIt WAS rumored on the street yesterday that the 133d regiment, National Guards, Col. Iunls, now at Parkereburg, had received order to join the Army of the Potomac. We could not learn where the rumor came from. Convention. The Republicans met in the different wards of the city last evening to elect delegates to the County Conven tion, which is to elect delegates to the Abo litiou State Convention, to be held In this city on the 25th of May. Personal Intelligence. MajorGcneral W. S. Rosecrans was in the city a few hours yesterday, arriving in the morning and de parting on the afternoon train. John Ellsler, the popular theatre man ager, is among the drafted men in Cleve land. Hoops. Attention is directed to the hoop skirt establishment of Red & Kohu, advei Used in another columu. , Military. Several reglmentsof Nation' al Guards received their arms at the arsenal and marched through the city yesterday, Mr. John P. Colcokd, for forty-four years the Treasurer of the Philadelphia Typographical Society, has resigned his place on account of sickness and the loss of eye-sight. Italian Nationality. Victor Emman uel has had an apoplectic stroke. Then comes the question, what is to become of Italy, if he should die? His eldest son, Prince Humbert, heir to the crown, is sim ply an amiable young man, who wants ten months of being twenty-one years old, who drives charmingly, rides spiritedly, hunts gallantly, flirtsuelightfully, shoots wonder fully, smiles winningly, dresses becoming ly, and is very popular on account of his good looks, friendly manners, and ardent amiability. How far these qualifications, which make him a good-natured vetit mai tre, may serve him, as King of Italy, when ever his turn comes, remains to be tried and seen. But it is easy to see that, should It aly lose Victor Emmanuel, her chief hope of continued nationality may be looked for in the friendship and support of the Em peror of the French. Morals of Washington. It is a sad, a shocking picture of life in Washington which our correspondents are giving us. A bureau of the Treasury Department made a house of seduction and prostitution. The necessities of poor and pretty women made the means or their debauchery by high Government officials. Mcmbersof Congress putting their mistresses into clerkships in the departments. An honorable Senator knocked down in the street by a woman whom he had outraged. Whisky drinking ad libitum. The Government cheated in contracts and openly robbed bv its em ployees. Writes our most careful corres pondenta long resident of the Capital " Washington was never quite so villainous ly corrupt as at the present time. In the palmy days of Southern rule, ot slavery, there was not half the curruption there Is now." We do not doubt this Is strictly true; and we repeat, it Is a sad, shocking picture. Springfield Republic. A New Gambling Game. A new confi dence dodge known as the "mallet game" is now being practised. The device con sists of a finely made and highly orna mented calker's mallet, the handle of which upon being unscrewed, permits of the escape of a five cent place. Confidence man No. 1 stepson the coin as It falls out and tells No. 2 that there was five cents in the mallet No. 3 admits that there " was," but believes that It still remains in, having framed an excuse for not noticing the dropping of the coin. Abet is proposed, whereupon the ''spotted" verdant who is to be victimized is easllv in duced to bet that the five cent pieoe is not Inside tha mallet, he having been a curious observer ot the little scene.

The Bulletin of this city has the following special dispatch : Washington, May 12. It is reported that In an order Issued on Monday, found on some prisoners, Gen. Lee notitied his armv that his communication with Richmond was broken, and no rations could be drawn frrm thence, and he advised them to cap ture supplies from our army. Gen. Grant had cantured ud to vestenlnv about six thousand prisoners. Part of a regiment was cantured entire. It was com posed of men who had been exchanged but a few weeks since. The loss of the enemy in killed Is much more than ours. His wounded are supposed to be about tho same. The latest edition of the Starof this after noon has the following: Gen. Lee is reported to have asked for a cessation of hostilities to burrv his dead. Grant replied he had not time to bury his own dead, and proposed to advance imme diately. Yesterday morning the light was renewed, and continued with a varying success until 11 o'clock, when our line had somewhat advance. LATER. Up to this writiiiff we have received no continuation of the rumor In regard to Gen. Lee above mentioned, but the fact that such a reKrt was current In Fredericks burg yesterday, and the buoyant feeling -there in regard to our position based upon a knowledge of the general facte of a hope lul nature. The prisoners cantured on Tuesdav and Wednesday number over four thousand. The rebel dead and wounded were foiind covering almost every loot of ground. Wherever our troops surged forward and the rebels gave way the slaughter anion ar our troops was terrific, but not so great as tnat ot tne enemy, and but few captures were made by the latter. Fortress Monroe. Miiv 11. Tho lafist advices from the front state that the gun bout Brewster was blown up on tho Apjio matox yesterday by a rebel battery. No statement in regard to the loss of life. Fighting was going on all day yesterday. Tiie main portion of the enemv is sun- posed to be on onr right. The troops were under command of Gen. Smith: the turn pike between Richmond and Petersburg was the bone of contention up to 3 o'clock P, M. to-day. Nothing later has been re ceived. Most of our dispatches are sup pressed. Petersburg has not been abandoned, nor as yet besieged. Beauregard is there in command. Fort Darling is still in the hands of the rebels. A report is lust received which states that Col. Shaw has burned the long bridge near Weldon aud two others; that he made three charges aud the third time succeeded. I give this for what it is worth. My in formant says she heard Col. Spear tell ite The latest advices from Newbern state that the rebels are again threatening the place; that they have possession ol the railroad, aud that last Thursday they de manded the surrender of Moorehead City. Our forces refused and the rebels destroyed the railroad aud retired. It is rumored that they have 8,000 men, and propose to invest Newbern. Tho fight on Thursday between our fleet' aud the rebel gunboats in Albermarle Sound lasted several hours, and the rebel iron clads retired up the Roanoke river. Nsw York. Mav 1210:15 P. M. The Herald extra Just Issued has the following: Washington, May 12. Very importrnt news has just been received. The result of the last great battle is the defeat of the rebels and the retreat of Lee. 2,000 pris oners and twelve cannon have just been captured. It will not take Grant all sum mer to finish this fight at this rate. Later. Up this writing we have no con firmation of the above mentioned; but the fact that such a report was current in Fredericksburg yesterday, shows the bouy ant feeling there in regard to our position. Beauregard at Petersburg. Bermuda Hundred, Va, May 10. Noth ing definite has yet been accomplished by our forces in the way of captures, But every thing looks favorable. . Beauregard, with about twenty-five thou sand men, is in Petersburg, and we have all the railroads cut leading to that city, and forcvw enough to keep Beauregard there un til ho surrenders. We shall, it is reported, soon commence a siege of the place. 9 Financial. Chicago, May 12.

BLOODIEST BATTLE OF THE WAR! The Dead Lay Piled in Heaps. An Expensive Victory Generals Rice and Stevenson Killed. [Herald's Special.] New York, May 12. On Tuesday, Gib bons' and Bcrlou's divUions were with drawn from the south bank of the l'o. Tho latter's division was closely followed by the enemy, who were checked by our artillery, posted along the ridge command ing the river. Early in the tfay the whole armv began to straighten out in line of battle for a renewal of the engagement. Skirmishing was kept up during "this time between the advanced Hues of the two ar mies, the enemy stirring himself as though he Intended oft'ensive operations. Our line was formed with tho Second corps on the right, the First in the centre, and the Oth on the left, with Burnside's corps In the rear of our left for tho protection of our immense trains, and to act as a reserve in any emergency. The country here was quite rolling, with studded groves of pine and hard wood, and afforded much better facilities lor the handling of troops and the use of artillery than about the wilderness. The enemy during the night strengthened their formidable position with ritle pits, breastworks, &c, rendering it stronger than any line of defense occupied by him since leaving the earthworks on theRapl din. Thus matters stood until far Into the af ternoon. Fighting became quite sharp at intervals at different points, but without anything definite; five o'clock was fixed for the grand assault. General orders announc ing the success of Sherman in the west, and Butler on James river, were read to the troopB, producing tho wildest excitement. As tne time approached for the attack, the enthusiasm ol the troops became almost ungovernable. Grant, surrounded by his stall, and Meade, Hancock and Warren, all stationed on the eminence within sight of each other, while the vast columns of our army slowly gathered themselves together for the great struggle. Just as the attack was about to be made the enemy advanced on our right threatening to press that por tion of the line, which disconcerted for the time the plan of assault. Troops were hur ried to the support of the right, but Barlow succeeded In checking the rebels, and send ing back his reinforcements with word that he had men enough and to spare. llulf-past six waa then fixed upon for the assault. Watches were compared by corps commanders, and finally all separated with orders to attack at the appointed time. At , the appointed hour simultaneously with the roar of the twelve signal gunR, the whole front advanced with cheers from the whole line. The movement was indescribably grand. A portion of the forces moved in solid column, while others advanced in the usual order of battle, the whole army mov ing together, and yet each command its own battle. The whole rebel line opened the most murderous lire, against which our lines Irrcsistably swept, driving me enemy siowiy duck ironi ins position. capturing nearly two thousand prisoners anu mree pieces 01 artillery.

Mv dispatch yester day afternoon left the army in the midst of a terrible battle as terrible for the the time it lasted as any in the recent series of fights, Heretofore the contests have been invari ably musketry; in this battle the roar of artillery was as fierce and Incessant aud al most as deafening as at Gettysburg. The battle continued till night, and darkness closed the sanguinary struggle. Our army added another to the list of battles and vic tories. In the morning a change was made in the disposition of our lines. Our men greatly strengthened their earthworks. tiirew up additional abattls, and everything was uone to niaKe tne uay one ot Uccislve results. Very active skirmishing all tho fore part of the day which merged at length into a general engagement. The most determined and persistent ef fort which has been made since the com mencement was made in the fight in this locality to turn our right. Charge alter charge was made by the enemy on the right. Four columns of men repulsed each charge valiantly. At length the 5th corps urove tne enemy, compelling mm to tall back into his third line of defenses. The effect of this repulse was apparent. Rebel dead at all points lay piled in heaps. In one of these gallant charges fell the brave Gen. Rice at the head of Ills column, as he has been in every fight. Busy In thejnldst ot tho terrible conflict was Gen Warren. He rode up and down his lines, directing the movements regard less of shells and bullets. Another horse was shot under him the third within the last four days. ' He made a general assault at seven o'clock. It was the most magnificent and terrible one of the war. Batteries, through the cuttimr down of some trees, were plac ed in an advantageous position; as like wise batteries of other corps. Simul taneously these cannon hurled murderous missiles into the ranks of the enemy, ac companied by a general volley of musketry, and from this hour till dark the conflict deepened. Night left us victors. Every side of our lines was now advancing, and we had taken more prisoners than we had lost. But it has been an expensive victory; our losses were heavy, but it is believed that of the enemy far exceeds ours. We expect the battle will recommence in the morning. Our men are still In good spirits, aud there Is no give way to them. [Times Special.] Washington, May 11. A distinguished officer who left Grant in the saddle as late as 10 o'clock this morning, sums up the bloody work of yesterday thus: The fight opened all along the line. Longstreet's corps, under Hill, held the rebel right, rest ing about two miles northeast of Spottsyl vania, and Grant pitted Burnside's 9th corps against it. At a given moment later in the afternoon, Burnside precipitated his entire command, except colored troops, upon the rebel right, driving and completely crush ing it, capturing three rebel brigades and four pieces of cannon. The fight continued with ferocity never before witnessed until P. M, when night closed upon the blood iest field produced in this war. The losses on both sides are stated to be very large. . Ot the rebel brigades captured, some es caped during the awful carnage which fol lowed, but 1200 of the captured were sent to the rear this morning. Our informant talked with some of them before leaving to day, and they acknowledged they had been in every principal battle of the war, but never experienced such terriblo fighting. The battle ceased at 9 o'clock, our Hue hav ing advanced Burnside occupying at the end of the conflict the entrenchments held by Longstreet's forces at the beginning. This morning the fight was renewed up to 10 o'clock Burnsido held the same position.' Lee's army was then contracted into a sort of horse shoe form in and .about the town Spottsylvania Court House. Gen. Steven son is killed. ' . " t Butler's movements south of Richmond have been felt and appreciated. Another Account. Washington, May 12. Dispatches from the Army of the Potomac, dated Wilderness battle field, May 11th, say that probably the most desperate lighting of the past sev er, terrible duys took place Tuesday. Be lieving the enemy to have sent a greater part of his troops to Richmond, an advance along the entire Hue was determined on at an early hour. The 2d corps, having the right of the line, had crossed the Po the evening previous, and met with but slight opposition. Iu the morning the position of the enemy was found to be i 1 the shape of a horse Rhoe, and on Hancock's troops ad vancing to the attack, they were compelled to fall back. An attempt to break their center was then ordered, and part of Han cock's men were sent to support Warren in the movement. Our right was also advanced, and the move was begun in the afternoon. The enemy were driven Into their entrench ments iu gallant style, and Uptons' brigade of Wright's Gth corps got in the rifle pits and captured twelve guns and about one thou sand prisoners. Not being supported by other portions of the line who were unable to gain tho line of works in their front, this brigade was forced to evacuate its advanced position, having their captured guns after spiking them, but bringing off all the pris oners. The enemy sufl'ered heavy losses during the fight, our shells falling into their works and our Infantry delivering their fire with remarkable precision. General Rice was wounded in the thigh early in the engage ment, aud died after his leg had been am putated. Gen. Stevenson is also reported killed. He commanded a brigade in Burn Bides corps. Our losses were very heavy. Gen. Gib bons' illvision has lost altogether over a thousand men. Gen. Robinson's division, after losing both its general ofllcers and a)out twenty-five hundred men, had no General to command It, and it has been broken up and distributed among other di visions of the Gth corps. No division of the army fought better than thlsone. About six o'clcck P. M., a report was brought to Gen.
