The regular packet Platte Valley, the first boat through from Memphis, arrived at Cairo, June 8th, bringing the following account of the naval engagement on the Mississippi river before Memphis. Our forces are in possession of Memphis. Our flotilla left Fort Pillow at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon, consisting of the gun boats Benton, flag shio, Cairo, Carondalet, St. Louis, Louisville, and the rams Mon arch, Switzerland, Lancaster, Queen of the West, Fulton, Mingo, Sampson and Hornet, Finding no obstructions at Fort Ran dolph the flotilla passed, and at 8 o'clock Thursday evening the gunboats anchored two miles above Memphis, the rams re maining a short distance above. A reconnoisance discovered the rebel fleet lying near Memphis, consisting of the following vessels : the Gen. Van Dorn, flag ship, Gen. Price, Gen. Bragg, Gen. Lovell, Jeff. Thompson, Gen. Beauregard, Sumter, and Little Rebel, all rams, under command of Captain Ed. Montgomery. During the night the rebels moved down the river, and at early dawn were out of sight, but in about half an hour were ob served coming up, formed in line of battle. Our gunboats had, in the meantime, weighed anchor, and followed by several rams, moved slowly towards the rebel fleet, when a shot from the Little Rebel's long range rifled gun fell within a short distance of the gunboat Cairo, which was in advance. The Cairo replied with a broadside, and soon the engagement became general, at long range. The rams had, in the meantime, advan ced, and the rebel boat Beauregard, being some distance in advance, was sought out by the Monarch and the Queen of the West, each striving to be the first to strike the rebel craft. The Monarch succeeded in striking the Beauregard amidships, al most cutting her in two, causing her to fill and siuk immediately in the channel of the river, opposite the city. At this juncture the ram Little Rebel, made a dash for the Monarch, which was by this time in the midst of the rebel fleet, but by a skillful movement of the pilot of the latter, she dropped out of the way, and the blow intended for her struck the rebel boat Gen. Price, taking her wheelhouse and making it nccessarv for her to run ashore, where she sunk. A shot entered the side of the General Lovcll, rendering her unmanagable, and immediately after, she was run down by the Queen of the West A broadside from the Benton toot effect in the sides of the Jeff. Thompson, and she was run ashore, and soon after was in flames, burning to the water's edge. Four of the rebel gunboats, having been disabled, the remainder of their fleet re treated down the river, pursued by our gunboats, firing as they advanced, and resulting in the capture of the Sumter, Brags:, and Little Rebel, which had been abandoned by most of their crews. The latter was run ashore. Captain Montgomery and most of his officers and men succeeded in making their escape in the woodson the Arkansas shore. The Federal ram -Lancaster was struck by the Beauregard early in the engagement, disabling the former slightly. Colonel Ellet, in command of the rams, was struck in the breast by a splinter, stunning him temporarily, but he soon recovered and remained on deck throughout tba action. This was the only casualty on our side. Our rams were armed with sharp shoot ers, mostly from Illinois, who did good execution, picking off the enemy's gunners at every opportunity. The rebel loss in killed, wounded and prisoners is heavy, but has not yet fully ascertained. Our tugs were busily engag ed in picking up the crews of their disabled boats. After the return of the gunboats which had gone down in pursuit of the rebels, Commodore Davis sent a boat from the flag ship Benton with the followiag note to the Mayor of the city: U. S. Flag Steamer Bekton, ) off Memphis, June 6. J Sir I have respectfully to request that you will surrender the city of Memphis to the authority of the United States, which I have the honor to represent I am, Mr. Mayor, with high respect, yourob't servant, C. H. Davis, Flag Officer Commanding. In about an hour a tug boat put out from the Levee bearing this message: Mayor's Office, Memphis, June 6. C. H. Davis, Flag Officer, &c, Sir Tour note of this date is received and contents noted. In reply I have only to say that as the civil authorities have no means of defence, by force of circumstances the city is in your hands. Respectfully, John Park, Mayor. Immediately after, the boats orew landed sad the National Flag was hoisted over the post ofiice. The party were followed by an excited crowd, but was not molested. The 43d and 46th Indiana regiments now occupy Memphis. Colonel Fitch is in command. The city is quiet No demon stration whatever has been made, and it is asserted that it will not be .necessary to declare .mrUj lr- JFive of our gunboats lay abreast of the city. We captured five large steamers, which were moored to the levee. All the rebel flags known to be flying in the city have been removed, and no difficulties occurred. The principal flag was nailed to a pole on the levee, and the staff had to be cut down. The following has been received from Colonel Ellet by the War Department. Hon. E. M. Stanton : Dear Sir Yesterday, after the engage ment with the rebel fleet had nearly termi nated, and the gunboats and one of my rams had passed below, I was informed that a white flag had been raised in the city. I immediately sent out my son,-a medical cadet, Charles R. Ellet, ashore with a flag of truce and the following note to the au thorities : Opposite Memphis June 6. I understand that the city of Memphis has surrendered..' I therefore send my son with two United States flags, with instruc tions to raise one upon the Custom House and the other upon the Court House, as evidence of the return of your city to the care and protection of the Constitution. Chas. Ellet, Com'g. The bearer of the flags and the above note was accompanied by Lieut-Colonel Conkell of the 59th Illinois regiment, and two men of the boat guard. The following is the reply of the Mayor : Memphis. June C. Col. Charles Ellet, Commanding &c. Sir Your note of this date is received and contents noted. The civil authorities of this city are not advised of its surrender to the forces of the U. S. Government, and our reply to you is simply to state, respect fully, that we have no power to oppose the raising of the flags you have directed to be raised over the Custom House and Post Office. Yours, respectfully,' John Park, Mayor. On receiving this reply the small party proceeded to the Post Office to raise the the national flag, and were there joined by the Mayor. It is proper to say that the conduct of the Mayor and some of the citi zens was unexceptionable, but the party was surrounded by an excited mob, using angry and threatening language. He as cended to tlio top of the Post Office and planted the flag, though fired upon several times and stoned by the mob below, still I believe this conduct was reprobated by the people of standing in the place. Indeed, many evidences of an extended Union sen timent there reach me. Respectfully, Chas. Ellet, jr., Col. Com'g Ram Fleet. THE SMOKY HTTT. VALLEY. A correspondent of tho Topeka Record writing from Salina, speaks as follows of the mineral and railroad prospects of the Smoky Hill Valloy: "The probable passage of the Pacific Railroad bill is as significant of the future and speedy prosperity of this section as the Homestead bill. If there is ever to be a' Kansas railroad it must go up the valley of the Smoky Hill river. The Republican Fork flows into the State of Kansas from Nebraska, and a road to follow its course would of neoessity be driven to the Platte, whose legitimate eastern outlet looks thro'gh Omaha. The railroad fate of all Kansas is with that of the Smoky Hill river. In addition to that, as a country for settlement, it is tar superior to either tho Platte or upper Republican. Its slopes are easy. Hundreds of beautiful creeks, fringed with timber, are to be found to the western boundary of Kansas. Coal exists from the mouth of the Solomon to a point 150 miles west. The most valuable coal mines being 80 miles west of this point, There are several seams of valuable cannel coal at Cedar Bluffs, 55 miles distant. It is only by the valley of the Kansas and Smoky Hill that the enormous Santa Fe trade can be carried any distance on the Pacific line of road. If the resources of nature have any power in determining this question we will yet see the routes to tho Pacific, Santa Fc and Eastern Kansas, centering near these rich coal fields, and bearing from their bosom much of the trade of the road." m m jg Sitting on the piazza of the Cataract was a young, foppish-looking gentleman, his garments very highly scented with a mingled odor of musk and cologne. A 6olemn-faccd odd-looking man, after passing by the dandy several times, with a look of aversion which drew general notice, sud denly stopped, and in a confidential tone said, "Stranger, I know whafll take the scent out of your clothes, you" "What ! what do you mean, sir?" said the exquisite, fired with indignation, starting from bis chair. " Qb, get mad now, pitch round, fight, just because a man wants to do yon a kindness!" cooly replied the stranger. " But I tell you I do know what'll take out that smell phew! You just bury your clothes bury 'em a day or two Uncle Josh got foul of a skunk, and he ' At the instant there went up from the crowd a simultaneous roar of merriment, and the dandy vary sensibly " cleared the coop," and vanished up stairs. y A Rev. Mr. Graves has invented a new pike for the Confederate service. The Providence Journal thinks the only pikes the rebels will be likely to we will be turnpikesin therear. -- fend llfalktg. TALK ABOUT HAIR, God covered the skull with hair. Some people shave it off. Mischievious practice. It exposes the brain. God covered a part of man's face with hair. Some people shave it off. Mischievious practice. It exposes the throat and lungs the eyes likewise, say wise physiologists. Men become bald. Why ? Because they wear closed hats and caps ! Women are never bald except by disease. They do not -wear close bats and caps. Men never lose a hair below where the cap touches the head, not if they have been bald twenty years. The close cap holds the heat and perspiration. Thereby the hair glands become weak ; the hair falls out. What will restore it? Nothing, after the hair falls out. But if in process of falling out, or recently lost, the follow ing is best : Wash the head freely with cold water once or twice a day. Wear a thoroughly ventilated hat. This is the best means to arrest the loss and restore what is capable of restoration. What will beautify a woman's hair? Whatever will invigorate the hair glands ! Oils and most other applications debilitate the hair glands. Cold water is best. At first the head looks like a witch, but nftcr a few weeks it makes the hair luxuriant. By the persistent use of cold water I have seen thin, poor hair become rich and curl)-. Only the part of the hair next the scalp should be wet. It must bo thoroughly dried. JJio Lqxcis, M. D, NO RETREAT IN THE PROGRAMME. The line of the Army before Richmond extends a distance of fifteen miles, and forms an arc of a circle, the two wings being nearest to the city. At Gen. Mc Clellan's headquarters a telegraph extends to the headquarters of each division, by which means the General is kept advised of every movement that takes place along any part of the wHely stretched line. McClellan is represented as looking re markably well, and daily rides along the whole length of the army, creating the greatest enthusiasm among the men. His hair is becoming tinged with a respectable gray hair or two, the result of the immense amount of mental and physical labor he has performed for some time past. Tho confidence of the officers arriving hero from the army that McClellan will shortly take Richmond is unbounded. Tbcy consider it a foregone conclusion On asking of them what means the army would take to secure themselves in case of a retreat, one remarked, " Oh ! there's to be no retreat." On pressing the question as to what they would do in the possible contingency of a retreat, he " couldn't see it," but said, "There's no retreat in the programme DEACONS. " Timothy Titcomb," alias Doctor Hol land, of the Springfield Republican, is down upon the sour kind of Deacons: he likes a whole-souled man, and thinks the lugubri ous sort of religionists are a serious injury to tho reputation of genuine Christianity. He savs : " I have seen a deacon in the pride of his deep humility. Ho combed his hair straight and looked studiously after the main chance ; and while he looked, he employed himself in setting a cood example. His dress was rigidly plain, and his wife was not indulged in the vanities of millinerv and mantua making. He never joked. He did not know what a joke was, any fur ther than to know it was a sin. He carried a Sunday face through the week. He did not mingle in the happy social parties of his neighborhood. He was a defcon. He starved his social nature be cause he was a deacon. He refrained from all participation in a free and generous life because he was a deaoon. He made bis children hate Sunday because he was a dea con. He so brought them up that they considered themselves unfortunate in being the children of a deacon. They were pitied by other children because they were the children of a deacon. His wife was pitied by other women because she was the wife of a deaoon. Nobody loved him. If he came into a oircle they always stopped until he went out Nobody ever grasped 'his hand , cordially, or slapped him on the shoulder, or spoke of him as a good fellow. He seemed as dry and bard and tough as a piece of jerked beef. There was no- -softness of character no juciness no lovli ness in him. Npw it is. of no use for me to undertake to realise that God admires such a character as this. m m m m tft.The Cleveland Plaiudecder, in a biographical sketch of its late distinguished editor, J. W. Gray, says : tf His life affords another example to the rising young men of the day, of tke power of the will to triumph over all obstacles," when to indefatigable industry is ..added those exemplary virtues, strict integrity and temperance. A poor boy, without money or friends, he came to this city twenty-six years 'ago, and by the simple force of his own talents and close applica tion reared for himself a national reputation as an Editor, and the practical benefts of a ypecptuj- iujcuuuvc. THE REELING IN-CANADA. A Cauadian gentleman, writing from Quebec, thus speaks of the effect of the fall of Norfolk and New Orleans in that country : u The native Canadians seem to feel it more than the sojourning Englishmen, the truth being many of them are terribly afraid that you meditate attack upon their soil for the uncivil conduct of Great Britain toward you in the early part of the rebellion, or rather that hostilities will be provoked with the mother country, and that Canada will be made the battle ground. The aristo cratic Canadians, with the intensity of John Bullism, who almost considered the disruption of the great Rcpubic certain, seem terribly chopfallen, bpginning to see, and full well knowing, that you will come out of this fiery ordeal a greater people, a stronger people, and I will add, a people unconquerable by any nation now in exist ence upon the earth's surface. The moral sublimity of your grandeur in the eyes of the civilized world, will soon be shown to the enthralled of all tongues and people, when they shall in triumph point to the United States of America as the freest, happiest and most prosp2rous nation, living under and being guided by a Constitution the best ever given by governmental fathers to their children." ASKING QUESTIONS. There are few positions of more delicacy than in interrogating Sabbath-schools, espe cially young scholars. This is ihown by the experience related of a clergyman in Maine, who was opposed to having any mirth in Sunday-school. Ho thought it injurious to all, and unnecessary for the entertainment of the children. He offered to address the school, aud show that they could be well entertained seriously. The following dialogue ensued: " Children, I am going to tell you about Peter. Who knows who Peter was?" No answer was made. "Cannot any one thoso large girls tell me who Peter was V Still no reply. " Can any little boy or girl in the school tell me who Peter was ?" " I can,' said a little fellow in the fur ther corner. ,Ab, that's a good boy. Now you come up on the platform by my side, and stand up in this chair, and tell those girls who Peter was." Jimmy did as he was bid, and in the shrill voice of childhood repeated : ' Pter Peter, punkiu eater, Had a wife and couldn't keep her " At this point he was stopped, but not before the full point was taken by the school, and Mother Goose's poem appro ciatcd. -- A Good One -Pat was helping Mr. Blank to get a safe into his office one day, and not being acquainted with the article, inquired what it was for. " To prevent papers and other articles which arc plaoed in it from being burnt in case of a fire," said Mr. B. "An' sure, will nothing ever burn that you put in that thing?" " No." " Well, thin, yer honor, ye'd hotter be after getting into that same thing when ye die." Mr. Blank " wilted." t!S " Y hat abominable lies we have been told," exolaimed an uncombed, un washed and uncomelv Newborn damsel of forty-five summers, as Burnside's gallant boys were filing past. " Why they said tho Yankees were after l beauty and booty but.they haven't touched me yet !" And she lifted her voice and wept that she had been so deceived. UST The Rev, R. J. rJreckinridgo in a late speech said : " It is impossiblo to con ciliate them. They have no desire for it, and do not propose conciliation. The war was commenced by them to divide and destrov the nation, and set up an incompat ible Government. The only way to deal with them is to crush them." Are not these words of wisdom and experience. lgi Lieut. Reynolds, whose wife was sometime since commissioned as a Major, strongly protests against the appointment, unless he can be made a colonel, giving as reason that Mrs. Belle now commands him by virtue of her rank, which is distinctly contrary to the original understanding be tween them. IThe Louisville Journal thinks that if any rebel cotton is successfully concealed on the approaoh of the Union armies, it will have to be hidden in the bosoms of the the women. We guess that our inquisi tive troops will be very apt to find even that precious treasure if they once get their hand in. ) A tutor lecturing a young man for irregular conduct, added with earnestness : " The report of your vices will bring- your father's' gray hairs in sorrow to the grave." "I beg your pardon, sir," replied the incorrigible, " the old cuss wears a wig." tm m ' A young lady of Calfornia recently broke her neck while resisting an attempt of a young man to .kiss hen This furnishes a fearful warning to youn laaies. A TALE OF A HORSE; In the late funeral procession man of our citizens must have observed a splendid Morgan-Arabian dark chestnut hor'., witli a silver mane tail, rode by George Gagcj Esq. .The horse; besides his excellent points, his proud and arching neck, delicato step and glossy hido, has quite a history connected with him; in other words, to thui animal hangs a tale quite different from tlio caudal appendage, with which necessity nature provided him. At the breaking out of tho rebellion, ho belonged to a widow lady in Memphis, of high connections and large wealth, who paid a fabulous sum for him, attracted by his rare beauty. Ho was a favoritic pet with her, and her affections were divided between him and the gallant and ga Mis sissippi Maj, of Cavalry, a dashing dragoon gotten up exclusively for killing fair ladies with his smiles, and the " dainued Yanks" with his terrible cutlass. Just previous to his departure for Columbus, (the Major, not 'the horse) this murderous Mississippi Major had an interview with the weeping widow, who was inconsolable at his depart ture, and wouldn't bo comforted any how. The flattering tongue of the Major, how ever, applied to her wounds the sweet oil of assurances that the Yanks could not kill him with bullet or bayonet. Ho bestowed upon hor many parting mementoes of affection, and promises of his constancy, and she in turu bestowed upon him the handsome horse with the silver tail. She bade him do nothing to dishonor the horse or his country, and in the thick est of -the fight to bear himself bravely, at the same timo gently insinuating that a Yankee's shine bono for a parasol handle, or his skull for a work-box, or his metatar sal for the hypothetical heir to rattle, would prove accoptable. The terrible Major sworo on oath which might have shocked " iir oarmy in Flander," and solemnly, upqu bended knee, promiscse that cither his dead body or the horse with the silvor tail shoUld. be returned to her. She bade litui good bye, he mounted the splendid animal, sho went to wooing somebody else, and he w'etH to the war, top-full of gallantry. . It chanced tu at the first battle in which the Major was engaged was at Bclmorit, Prior to the commencement of the figlit, the Major and a squad of his cavalry w'ero surprised by a reconnoitcring party of Fed erals. There was " mounting in hot haste," and a general skedaddle of tlio mos.t ap proved description. The Major left in such a hurry that ho forgot his horse, who, like a sensible animal, manifested his dis gust by running into the Federal lines. He was subsequently sent to Cairo, aud a few weeks fcince was sold at Government sale and bought by a Chicago gontlc'man. As neither the dead body of tho Major", hor the live body of the horse, have made their appearance at the widow's mansion at Mom phis, it is presumable that any further little love arrangements between them aro squelched. In any event the widow is out a horse, and the Major is out a widow, and the Chicago gentleman is in to the nmo'nnt of a horso worth tho owning. Chicaga Tribune. Okalona and Vicinity. Okaloina, to which place the rebel army of tho south west is reported to have retreated, is a post village of Chickasaw oounty, Mississippi, about one hnndred and seventy miles north by north east from Jackson, on the fouto of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad. It is distant sixtv-seven miles south of Corinth, -- m - and twenty-eight miles north by northwest of Columbus. Chickasaw county has an area of about nine hundred and ninety square miles. It is drained by the 'Okteb bebba, Lossacoona and the Zallab'usha rivers, the last of which rises withm it. The surface is nearly level and the soil pro ductive. Cotton and Indian corn are tho staples. The population in 1860 numbered 16,426, of whom 9,087 were slaves. It is hardly probable that the Confeder ates have made extensive preparations to defend the insignificant village of Okalona. Appearances indicate that Columb'us will bo made a rallying point for the rebel ho3ts,- K Y. World. Northern- Troops Souxn. Northern troop3 in hot climates are said to enjoy more robust health and perform mere work, under certain precautions as to health, than natives. Actual experience in Jamaica, under the direction of Capt Maryatt, and in Africa, under Dr. Livingston, the great explorer, has proved the ability of Northern men to withstand the most deadly of tho tropical miasmata. Captain Maryatt dem onstrated the utility of wearing flannel next to the skin. Dr. Livingston proved the value of quinine as a prophylactic. At Port Royal our troops use quinine; with whisky, in the proportion of two .grins of powdered quinine dissolved in half gill of, whisky, diluted with half a gill of water. This is taken in the morning before eating, md again at night, by troops exposed to malaria, and it U said that go far from- pro moting intemperance,, it really gives agrenk distaste for intoxicating drinks.
