THE NEWS.
A furious storm raging last night be
tween. Pittsburgh and Washington cut off
our special despatch, and prevented ah di- j
rcct communication with the CapitaL The
other line east, via Cleveland and Buffalo,
"was worked with great difficulty; hence
our news is meager and unsatisfactory.
The report sent from Washington to
New York on Saturday evening, and
thence here last night, implying that
there had been no engagement at
Bewall’s Point, is hardly credible. We
are permitted to say in this connection
that the operators in the Chicago office,
chatting yesterday with the operators at
Cairo, (the latter being also ia connection
with Memphis,) learned that an indepen
dent and widely different version of the
reported fight, is current in the latter city.
The news there yesterday was that the
Federal troops had been repulsed with
great loss, while the Confederates escaped
with little damage; that Wilson’s Zouaves,
(on the day of the fight, in camp on Staten
Bland,) were utterly destroyed; and that
the greatest consternation reigned among
the Government forces. This news would
not have been permitted to go from Wash
ington; hence it must have taken its.start
at Norfolk, and thence been sent West
•over the Southern lines. But it is useless
to speculate on the credibility of ru
more, when a few hours will bring
us correct information.
The result of the vole in Westem Virginia
on the Eeccssion question justifies to the
fullest extent the report of the loyalty of
that part of the Old Dominion. It is not
probable that the Government whl permit
counties that give 500 to. 1,700 majority
against disunion, to be the
disloyal movements cast of the mountains.
In Memphis on Saturday, the utmost
exultation 'was manifested in consequence
of the cowardly murder of CoL Ellsworth.
*We ale not informed that any public dem
onstration 'eras made; but it is true that
the event gave great satisfaction in that
pestilent place.
S3 PROVED OPINIONS IN EUROPE.
The latest files of English and French
journals disclose a vast improvement of
opinion, concerning the American crisis.
The Manchester Guardian , speaking in
the very centre of the cotton interest,
frankly declares that England can have no
sympathy with the slavedrivers in the
great struggle. It goes so far even as to
say:
“ The Sooth ie fighting under the private's flag.
If the usual penalty is not inflicted on prisoners
taken from It* ranks, it will be because humanity,
after all, revolts from such a Draconian justice,
not been use the sentence would be undeserved. 1 '
And again:
“We like to read that the colors we ourselves
know so well, the red. white and blue, which hare
been seen in various forms lu the van of every bat
tle fought for freedom in modem times, are now
conspicuous on every breast throughout the North
ern btatee. —and believing that there, as in the old
world, they will be borne triumphantly to victory,
we trust that the soil over winch they wave will
never again be suffered to know the contamina
tion of slavery."
The Journal dcs Debate of Paris, rises
to the dignity of the occasion. It says;
41 In population, wealth, education and practical
talent, the No. th has greatly the advantage. The
North, too, has on its side, in the conflict that has
begun, acxiilaries that arc extremely powerful la
a struggle between nations, namely,
priuchlrc. Might and light are thus both on tho
aide of th© North."
•‘ln a -word, the crisis or slavers, such as the
Southern States have brought about, has led the
United States to an internal revolution. Such is
the stem reality, difficult to put out of s;ght.
Wh« t »haH be the character, and what tLe conse
cuences, ol this revolution! ’ The mind Is helpless
to foresee: but there is one thing which ire may
boldly Affirm, that a nation of such vitality vili be
cbls victoriously id resist the most terrible of
shocks"
The Paris SUdc presents the question to
its readers in the following strong colors:
“The firmness shown by the Northern States Is
& proof of the confidence which they feel in the
justice of their cause. We cannot but regret the
deplorable struggle which has commenced, but we
have a firm hope that the principles of justice and
Iberty which prevail In the Isorth will come tri
umphantly out of the crisis into which the violence
of the partisans of Slavery has thrown the Union.
Our wishes and symathlts are with those who do
not admit in any one a right of property over his
iellow creature, and who do not measure liberty
\ j the color of the skin/ ’
Condition of Richmond*
prominent citizen of Petersburg, Tir
ii!a, spent a frw days in Richmond last week,
c fays that all business la. wholly prostrate,
and the people staring wildly about as if the
city had been stricken with the plague. If two
persons, net well known, are seen talking
together on the streets, they arc silly ap
proached by eavesdroppers, and the subject of
conversation demanded. Bi-forebodings seem
to haunt them that they are doing something
for which they will eventually be made to
suffer, while there is no well-defined certainty
of accomplishing their undertaking against
the Government except among those who be
lieve the right of secession clearly established.
Letters of ISarquo,
The London correspondent ofthcNew York
Evening Post states most positively than many
of Jefl. Davis’s piratical letters of marque
have been token In London and Liverpool, by
Spanish houses, and that iron steamers have
been fitted out for the purpose of preying on
the merchant service of the North. This cor-'
respondent asserts that the matter is regarded
as .so serious in England that Urge numbers
of American ships have chaag cd hands at
ruinous prices, and that merchants refuse to
chip their goods in such vessels.
Tire Position of England*
One indication of the ignorance of England
respecting the present state of our affairs, is
shown In the fret that dispatches to Lord Ly
ons, 1 by the last steamer, were brought by a
courier extraordinary. Lord Lyons’s dis
patches by the previous steamer were not re
ceived, in consequence of the stoppage of the
Tnafls. The • British • Minis try apparently
thought there was danger that Washington
might have been latest or a hostile’force
thrown between it and New York by this
time; such a state of belief. Lord John
Bnsaell’a parliamentary remarks probably
grew.

How Col. Ellmrortli Wu Killed*
The Washington dispatch to the N. T*
Tribune says that after the landing of the Fire
Zouave regiment at Alexandria, which was
accomplished' In perfect order at the wharf;
Col. Ellsworth proceeded with a guard of five
men to the telegraph office, and when
arrived at the Marshall House, he observ
ed a secession flag flying at the top
of the building. Entering the house with
his . guard, he asked the first rrmp
he met, who was responsible for the appear
ance of the treasonable ensign ~on the root
The man replied that ho was simply a boarder
there, and knew nothing about it. Col. Ells
worth and his men therenpon went to.the
roof and took it down. Betuming they form
ed in military order, single file, Francis D.
Brownell, ofTroy, in front, and CoL Ellsworth,
bearing the flag, next When they reach
ed the second floor, Jackson, the proprietor
of the house, the same who had represented
himself as a boarder, opened a door and lev
elled a double barrelled'gun at Brownell.
The latter struck the gun up with his own
bayonet, and both barrels exxplodcd almost
simultaneously. The greater part of both char
ges lodged in the wainscot,bnt one slug entered
CoL Ellsworth’s heart, killing him instantly.
Almost at the same moment Brownell fired
at Jackson pending a minie ball through his
forehead and bayoneting him to the floor as
he fell.
Heath of Coif EHrwortlu
At a meeting of the Zouave Cadets, held at
the Briggs House on Saturday afternoon, 8.
Sexton, Esq., waa called to the chair, and A.
B. Hatch appointed Secretary. :
On motion, a committee of five, consisting
of the following members: AB. Hatch, J. B.
Bobinson, D. W. Norton, 8. T. HosmcrandC.
C. Phillips, were appointed to draft resoln
tions expressive of the feelings of the compa
ny in reference to the loss of their late com
mandant On motion the Chairman was add
ed to the committee.
It was unanimously resolved that the Ksv.
Z. M. Humphrey be requested to deliver a ser
mon upon the death of our late commandant,
and that an invitation to attend be extended
to all military organizations, and the citizens
generally, Whereupon Messrs. Sexton, Phil
-111 b and .Hammond "were appointed to wait
upon the Bev. Mr. Humphrey and announce
in the daily papers the time and place at which
the sermon will be delivered.
The Committee on Besolntions submitted
the following, which were unanimously
adopted:
Wiieeeas. To sur deep sorrow and regret,
the painful tidings have reached us of the as
sassination of our fellow-soldier and late com
mander, tbe gallant Colonel E. E. Ellsworth,
at the hands of those now engaged in armed
rebellion against the Government; and
Wheueas, By his death the country has
lest cneof her most efficient and promising
officers, one who -was the first to draw the
sword for the preservation of our national
grea*ness; therefore, be it
That regarding love of country as
one of the noblest and most sacred attributes
of man. we admire the spirit of devotion which
prompted our murdered brother to tew
down the standard of treason and rebellion,
and raise in its stead tbe glorious Stars and
Stripes; and that, while deploring his late,
we cherish his memory as that of a martyr in
the cause of his country.
Enolved, That In this dastardly act of tbe
traitors wo see the same spirit manifested
that has for months marked their course in
waging war against the lives and fortunes of
these unoffending citizens in tbelr midst,
who have dared to assert their loyally to that
time honored emblem which their fathers and
ours reared, at the cost of much blood and
treasure.
Hewhvd, That we tender to the relatives
and friends of the deceased our sincere sym
pathy for the loss of one whom we all loved
as a brother, a patriot and a’gallant soldier.
To the lather and mother oi our deceased
Colonel, words fail to express our sincere and
heartfelt condolence for their sadden bereave
ment.
Dcxdlwd, That the foregoing resolutions bo
published in the dally papers of this city, and
a copy scut to the parents of the deceased, and
that the members of the company wear the
usual badge of mourning for SO days,
8. Sexton, Chairman.
A. B. Hatch, Secretary.
Last evening at ameeting of Company “ D”
of the COth Kegimeat, the following appropri
ate resolutions were passed, and ordered to
be spread upon the minutes of the company:
JUcolved, That we have received the intelligence
of the death of Cel. E. £. Ellswobtb, with deep
sorrow. We regard this mournful event as one of
peculiar sadness to us who knew him, and among
whom be lived and set an example which chal
lenges emulation. He fell while honorably en
gaged in defending his country in the time of her
!reat*national peril: he fell while his youth was
etmlng with the bright promises of a glorious and
successful military career lin the path of patriotic
doty.
BtJtilttd, That the energy and perseverance of
hlfl character, hie talents for command and his
knowledge of military science, united with srreat
personal bravery, would, if his life had "been
jrolonged, have rendered him eminently useful to
lis country in the profession for which nature had
given him qualification s so distinguished.
Hereford, That bis death in this crisis, when
ench talents arc in demand, may well he deplored
throughout the country, and mourned as a nation*
allots. His immediate companions in arms in
loss of Col. Ellsworth have met with a bcrcav*
ment that claims onr profound sympathy; and
while the tears of his intimate friends and ac
quaintances testify their regard and love for the
man, and his comrades lament the fall of a brave
and gallant young officer, we at the adopted home,
of Col. Ellsworth, as citizen soldiers enlisted, lu
the cause which received his devotion, and to
which he was an early and conspicuous sacrifice,
claim the privilege of sharing in the lament, and
of hearing onr testimony to the virtues and the
merits oi the deceased.
At a meeting of the officers of the Yates
Phalanx on Friday evening last, the following
preamble and resolutions were unanimously
adopted:
Whereat, The mournful intelligence has
reached us that CoL Ellsworth has fallen by
the hand of a rebel and traitor while in the
dkeharge ot bis duties as an American soldier;
therefore
Jlf&ired) That wc accept the sad event as an
intimation that it was the will of Providence
that Chicago should furnish the first distln
, iuishe d victim to be oflered as a sacrifice for
he salvation of our beloved country.
Tfoohvd, That, having made for himself an
.enviable fame as a military officer in times of
peace, and having in war shown himself as de
voted to his country as he was capable to com
mand, the name of the gallant Ellsworth
shall be henceforth a watchword and a rally
irg slogan to the armies of freedom, and will
be associated, in history with that of Warren,
whose blood baptised the first battle-field of
the Revolution.
Resolved, That in memory of our gallant fel
low soldier, thus ruthlessly stricken down,
the officers of this Regiment will wear a badge
of mourning for thirty days.

The $1,000,000 Loan BUI Bused—Other Legisla
tivc Doinge-CoL EUcvxnrtKe Death,
[Special Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.]
UanißOir, Wzb.,-Hay25,1661.
The Legislature agreed- to adjourn on Mon
day at 10 o’clock, and has been finishing up.
business to-day. The Loan BUI has finally
passed both Houses.. It was amended so as
to provide for a new loan of $1,000,000, exclu
sive of the $200,000 authorized to be borrowed
at the last session. There was an irrepressible
conflict between the two Houses as to what
should be received in payment for bonds,
which thrcatcned.at one time to defeat the
bill entirely. The Senate were determined,
by a two-thirds majority, that nothing should
be received but gold and stiver, and signified
that to the Assembly in a way which that
body considered unparliamentary an d discour
teous, and on exciting debate sprang up, in
which some very hard things were said of the
Senate, which, however, ' had already receded
from several positions to meet the views of
the Assembly, Finally, however, a committee
of conference was appointed, and their re
port, by a large majority in the Assembly, and
a close vote in was adopted as a
comromlso. As the bin passed, it provides
that sixty per cent of the loan shall'be paid
for in coin, and the balance in notes of Wis
consin Banks, folly secured, at the selling
prices of stocks when the bills are offered. It
is thought■ this will be an inducement to
banks to make up deficient securities.
The Assembly passM the Senate bill pro
viding for the pay of volunteers who did not
enter the IT. 8. service for'three years. They
ordered the militia bill, killed by the Senate,
to be printed in pamphlet form, modeled after
the Massachusetts law,'and was not to go Into
effect till January.
The flag on the Capitol, and many others in
town, were displayed at half mast today, as a
token of mourning over the cruel fkte of
CoL Ei.lswobth. The following resolution,
introduced by the venerable Judge Spooner,
passed both houses unanimously:
Ktsoivtd by the the Senate concurring ,
That the flag over this capitol be lowered this
morning lo ‘‘half-mast” in token of the regret
which this Legislature feel, In common with the
friends of freedom and Union everywhere at the
death of Col. E. E, Ellsworth; that the baseness
of the act by which the country has been deprived
of his Eorriccs—an act eo dastardly in its charac
ter—is bnt another evidence that the present con
test is which our common country Is engaged is a
centeet of civilization against barbarism and of
humanity against .vandalism, and should nerve
the aim of every Patriot for harder blows in de
fence of freedom. Constitutional Government, and
the Union. ..
Col. Ellsworth spent several months here in
1858 and ’59, drilled the Governor’s Guards
and Dane Cavalry some, had the direction of
the military encampment which was a feature
of our State Pair In 1858, and was well known
here, and warmly loved by many friends who
have rejoiced in the lame ho acquired, and in
his growing greatness. Many were the pleas

AFFAIRS IN MISSOURI.
Interesting Bowde-dow at Jefferson
City.
[From the St. LoulsDemocrat, 25th,}
Our advices from Jefferson city by last
night’s train, ore such as to show but little re
liance is to be placed !n the supposed peace
arrangement made" between Goo. Harney and
the authorities at Jefferson City. When the
rumor of peace reached Jefferson, many of the
leading disaffected soldiery ran up tbe
confederate flag, and loudly cheered for Jeffer
son Davis, and it 6till hongs to the breeze, in
defiance of peace arrangements or general or
ders from tbelr' commander-in chief, General
Price.
We understand also, that many of the offi
cers of this rebellious army declare their
determination to provoke the Federal
authorities until they send Gen, Harney
to Jefferson City, that they came to fight, and
intend to have one, and if they can’t provoke
one in any other way, they will hong' some
one, eo that Harney may be ordered to march
upon them.
After the papers of the 23d wfire received
and read in the city, speeches of the most In*
fl&mmatoxy character were made by Parsons,
Mitchel, of Congressional notoriety, and
others.
It is said Gen. Sterling Price made ft tem
perate speed], in which be counseled good
faith to be exercised, and a protecting band
extended to all classes of Missouri citizens,
stating that his interview ■ with Gen. Harney
■was or. the most pleasant character. Bat this
■was not sufficient; the leaders ranted and
raxed to an alarming extent; one fellow
beerme bo rampant that be ran up the Con-,
federate flag, and confronted the speaker,
(Gen. Price) wbo ordered him to take it away.
The bold secessionist replied, “FUsec you m
h~l first, by G —d.” The General had to pre
tend not to hear this specimen of the rebel
lious part of Jackson’s army. Just at this
juncture of the speech,. Thomas Marry, pres •
ent or-late derk-of-the Missouri House of
ReprcEentatatires, waxed his hat above his
head, and shouted, “Huzza for Jeff Davis.”
' Poor Claib., he has raised a storm he is un
able to control, and is now placed between
two armies; one saying, onward—march ; tho
other, with thirty thousand well drilled and
loyal troopvwith bristling' bayonets, saying,
“ Thus far, and no farther, shslt thou go.”
After the speaking, and the loud outbursts
cf defiant indignation of the leaders, two of
the most cool and loyal companies were de
tailed as a night patrol guard, who remained
on duty during Ihewholc night, breasting the
inclemency oft he weather, to secure the per
gonal safety of citizens, and the city from be
ing laid in ashes, os was threatened by a reck
less demon, CapL Staples, of Pettis. -
Let every loyal citizen of Missouri return
heartfelt thanks to Generals Harney and Price
for their good Intentions of preserving peace
and the personal safety of citizens, notwith
standing the efforts of secession mobs to the
contrary. We will try to keep our readers
posted In reference to the movements of the
Missouri rebellion.
Vttptttfr Items from Potosz, Iboxtok,
Pilot Knob, &c.— We learn from reliable
sources that the secegfeionists along the L M.
R, R* do not seem to be satisfied*with the
drubbing Ihty have received, but ‘are still en
gaged In their petty and cowardly annoyances
to the Union men. It is said that in Frederick',
town, 20 miles below Mot Knob, they arc or
ganized to the number of 200, and prepared to
commit their-depredations, as their courage
rises to the sticking point. At Pilot Knob
they are furious, and threaten all sorts of ven
geance on the “Dutch,” and all who sustain
-them. Some 200 Germans, employed in the
iron works of CoL Bogy, at Pilot Knob, want
ed to form themselves Into a Union Home
Guard for self protection, but they were told
by the Superintendent that If they did ! auy-.
thing of the kind they would every one of
them be discharged,: So it appears it is per
fectly lawful and proper for the rebels to arm
themselves, 1 form- companies, harass Union
men, and commit other, outrages; but when
Union men take measures for sen defense, em
ployers, with rebel sympathies, forthwith
threaten' them with a die charge from service.
The Sheriff oriron county, who fled at the
first eight of federal troops. Is terrible brave I
when mere is no danger, and says he and bis
party of cut-tbroats and assassins will soon be ;
ready to commence* taking scalps. - This is
undoubtedly the game of the cowardly assas
sins. Run at tho approach of-: troops; but
tknlk about, and,under cover of night, mur
der their opponents one by one. : Thus it is |
all over the country. These dastardly brawl
ere, after boasting for months what they could.,
and would do, when a fair .fight' is offered'
them, cut and ran, and then'.wreck their
bloodthirsty vengeance on innocent, unarmed
pereona. It looks now as though this was to
be the mode of the rebel warfare.

.:Mcst hie Regiments Mote ? have >

It is repeatedly alleged that Union men there,
with their families, to mmy.inj

this unhappy condition of things continue,
and no adequate remedy be appued by the
State," several battalions of United States vol
unteerawill necessarily be moved over to that
section; of Missouri. This contingency Is
doubtless provided for In tho-plons of Gen.

commission from Gov. rates, Gommandcr-in-
Chief, to bring into active service for State
defence, a company of Dragoons of 125
men. I returned to Chicago and enlisted that
number of men; Subsequently forty-seven
others pressed themselves upon me with the
fall understanding that I would do all I could
for them towards getting them into actual
service. We were received(l72 men) atJSpring--
field as one company, drew rations, blankets,
camp equipage, &c, <fcc., as one company of
172 men. Twenty-four hours after the Ger
man Cavalry, from Chicago, . came into
camp unordered, and unaccepted.
Something must be done for them, and
Lieut. Gov. Hoffman exerted himself in their
behalf. From his efforts arose the cavalry
regiment bill, cutting all companies down to
80 men and Including the German cavalry and
the Chicago dragoons as the first two compa
nies. On the very heels of this came the or
der for me to march 100 men, without equip
ments, to Cairo. I expostulated, and the De
portment allowed me rime to buy horses and
horse equipments, which, as you know, I did
in Chicago, at the same time drawing from
Springfield * arsenal sabres, belts, and pistols
for two hundred men—the order bring
countersigned by Gen. Mather himself- CapL
Frank Bennett, Illinois Rangers, being re
fused service by the State, offered him.
self and command to me, 1 accepted so
much of it as would fill company B to a war
footing, taking Capt. Bennett and 25 men but
only offering them places in Company B. I
sent 18 of these men with CapL Bennett to
Cake with the horses for Company A, he im
. derstaning that he and Ms men were to return
to Springfield with Company B when relieved
by Company A. The balance of 7 men J could
not get passes for to Springfield and therefore
had to leave them.
The morning Company A left Springfield I
had assurances from the highest State author
ities that JCompany B. I Chicago Dragoons,
should he Company B 01 the cavalry regiment
and should have returned to Springfield to
assist Company B, the day after Company B
disbanded had not the intelligence of such dis
bonding reached me as it did! Capt. Bennett
and men'were passed from Chicago to Cairo
and from Cairo to Springfield, and his bill of
sl4 50 for expenses of men was paid by the'
proper department here, for which they hold
ids receipt.
No one as an officer or man can regret more
than I do the return and disbanding of Com
pany B ; yet, I do not believe it was owing In
any sense to any lack of interest or energy on
my part, and I most emphatically state that to
each and all of them 1 stated the plain truth
and nothing but the truth. 1 wish now to ask
the men who desired to remain with Compa
ny Bat Springfield, and who requested it of
me because they thought themselves likely to
obtain office in it, whether in the low, vile
and unjust attack made upon me they have in
any way vindicated their claims to the posi-'

About two weeks ago a mani named John
Kappcwas arrested and lodged in jail to await
his trial on charge of ah infamous crime at
tempted with his own daughter a young glrL
Since his incarceration, Kappe has frequently
asserted that the offence was the consequence
of, and took place during a fit of, intoxication.
He was naturally much depressed in mind by
his shocking position, wnich even his degrad
ed nature felt was to bear a stain of darker
nature than ordinary. On Friday night he
was found hanging to the door of his cedi, No.
20, by a fellow-prisoner..
- He hanged himself from the grates of the
door by a strap he usually wore around his
waist. His companion, awoke in the - night
and* finding him .* hanging there, gave the
alarms but no one responding, took the bady
down and placed it upon the bed, where it re
mained until the jailor came round at day
light. •
The following is the translation a letter,
found -upon the floor, written in German:
Fellow: Citizens While I-was so unjust
ly attacked in the newspapers, I only would
ask whether a man. who, about four years
ago, ordered his family from Europe to come
over hero, which cost him nearly S2OO, has
built a house in these hard times, has supplied
bis family with so much meat during tnc last
two years that they could not use it all, and
to sell some of It, has a cow, chickens, ducks,
etc. In my opinion, a woman alone cannot
attend to all these things; and a man has to
haven good part In it. The habit of drinking
is the discord in- my family, brought me to
things which ore wrong. I never was afraid
to work, and If mot, by a boss. The children
ore given out, • which is not my fault.
Mywuc’s fault it is, alone, that the children
are given out. She is termagant and turbu
lent, and always ready to begin a quarrel, aud
her only ambition, was to ran me into the
ground. If she was & woman as she ought to
be, she could not leave a child three months
old for about four weeks. If that had mot ta
ken place I would not . have had the misfor
tune with my dear child, which I can hardly
conceive bow I came to do It.. I must not
have been in my senses. I was drunk, and 1
done it, but not completely. (Here follow*
parts unfit for publication.) f
’ This is a lie. and a fine speculation of my
wife. The child was induced. She did not re
sist, which now seems to me very suspicion?.
My wife wanted me away a long while ago, but
she could not accomplish it. but I did not be
lieve they would do it in this way., I only re
grtt my dear good child. My wife is gully of
my murder, 1 being in my best manhood, she
has it all on her conscience and will after re
member It. My wish Is that these lines may
be published Is the paper and if possible be;

Affairs In Alexandria—Funeral of Col.
EUawoKh.
Washington, May 25.—There were reports
of fighting in tho neighborhood of Arlington
and Alexandria, but it proves to be a mistake.
Col. Elhworth’s funeral took place this
noon from the Executive Mansion. The
hearse was followed by ,tho Zouaves, among
whom was the avenger of EUs worth. He
carried the Identical secession flag tom down
by the deceased'soldier. Then followed the
President, Secretaries Seward and Smith—
officers of the Zouaves, etc. All the bells
were tolled—all the flags were at half mast
and draped In mourning.
The President while accompanying tho re
mains of CoL Ellsworth to the cars, was in
formed by a courier of stirring hostilities on
the Virginia side. Gen. Mansfield was similar
ly advised, and this was the foundation of tho
military movements here to-day. A dense
smoke was meanwhile seen on the line ol Ar
lington heights and cannonading heard. The
latter, however, were funeral minnto guns,
the former, probably, from camp fires.
The troops now here have been ordered to
hold themselves in readiness to march at a mo
ment’s notice. Tho utmost watchfulness on
the part of the military authorities to guard,
against the approach of, the secessionists is
everywhere maintained. /

The Cortina* War Opening on Texas,
[From the N. O. Picayune, SlsU] *
The intelligence by this morning’s mail
from the Rio Grande, announces that the ban
dit Cortina is making active preparations for
another raid upon the settlers of the Rio
Grande. It is also stated that the late insur
rection In-Zapata counfyt already noticed in
this paper,was a part of Cortinas’s programme.
.From.the Fort Brown Flog: we extract the
following:
Positive information has' been received of
the raising of a large fbree under Cortinas,
for the purpose of invading our territory, and
making war, it is asserted, in the name of the
United States, upon Texas. The news came
by express from Ricggold’sßuracks, through
information furnished by Mexicans to CoL H.
Clay Davis.
Since the receipt of the foregoing it has
been reported that Gen. Gaudaloape Garcia,
commandant of the line of the Bravo, has
received information from Juan Villareal, of
Comargo, setting forth positively that Corti
naa. with a large force, was moving up the left
back of the Rio Grande, preparatory to cross
ing, which it was thought would take place at
New Laredo. Such, we understand, to have
been the substance of the communication
made to Col. Ford by Gen. Garda.
Capt. Nolan, who was on his way hero from
Rio Grande City, was overtaken by an express
and requested to return to Fort'Mclntosh and
repel the invaders. It is said he halted to
await orders from CoL Ford, not knowing
where he would be the most needed.
Six reciuits from Matamoras, whilst en
route to join Cortinoe, were arrested at or near
Camargo, and having been sent back, were
IcdgtdlnjaiL
It stems a little surprislngttat a force could
organize in Mexico and obtain such formida
ble dimensions os have been reported, without
the same coming to the knowledge of the Mex
ican authorities at au earlier day; but such
really appears to be tbe case, for so far as we
know the functionaries of Matamoras, of the
whole line of the Bravo In fact, have acted in
good faith.
We have not learned what order, If any,
CoL Ford has given to Capt. Nolan under the
circumstances, but we do know that Cortlnas
will find, to his sorrow, that much Ulkcd-of
Ford a little the worst crossing he ever tried.
Since the above was .in type, Capt. Nobn’s
commend aarived at Fort Brown.** The Cap
tain and Lieut. Milicon gave us 'a call and re
ported that, from the best information they
possessed, recruits were pouring In from au
directions to join Cortinas, preparatory to in
vading our State; and they are of the opinion
that quite a formidable force has already been
concentrated on the river.
They assure us tbat the Zapata county In
surrection was unquestionably connected with
Cortinas’s invasion scheme, and that had it
not been broken up when it was, in a lew
days it would have been formidable.
First Fight with the Sewa'l’s Point
Battery.
Fobt-Monbob, VVa t Monday, May 20,1651.
The Star, formerly the Montlccllo, one of
the war vessels employed by Government in
Chesapeake Bay and Hampton Roads, had a
very brilliant engagement with a battery of
the “rebels of Yi^inia.”
The Star took up her position about 4V£
miles from Ecrt Monroe, and about 870 or 000
yards from the battery she engaged. In an
Lour and three-quarters she fired 115 shell, as
near as I could tell, dismounting two or three
guns of the battery, and finally reducing the
remaining one—a rifled cannon.
That a number were killed and wounded
we arc certain, from the yelling and confusion
that the shells exploded among
the guns, but of course it wnl ever be impos
sible to find out the number.
i The Star changed her position continually,
bo as to deprive the rebels of one of the ben
efits they had derived from their shots, by de
stroying the range, •which of course several
successive shots -would giro them. Several
volleys from Minie rifles were fired, covering
the side of the vessel with their marks; some
passed through tbc slate rooms, a number of
which are above deck. A shell from the rifled
canuon passed through one of the officers’
state-rooms, destroying the arrangement of
the servants, and probably would have had a
mortal effect on any one in them. One ex
jdoded in the coal-bunker, dashing the coal
around quite lively. Several other shots look
c ffect, but caused no injury. *
Two men were wounded by splinters broken
off by the passage of a shot through the pilot
house. They are walking around to-day, so
they could not have been hnrt much.
From the fort could be distinctly seen the
splash of the balls and shells as they struck
around the gallant little Star; the return
shells from her bnrsted just where they in
tended they should. It seemed as if they*
could plant a shell precisely where they want
ed to every time-
Attack oh a Secession Sword Factory
in Richmond.
Tbe following paragraph from, the Rich
mond Dispatch of Wednesday Indicates that
there arastill opponents of Secession In that
city:
Messrs. Boyle & Gamble, who have estab
lished a saw factory in this city, have been for
some time engaged in the manufacture of
swords for the Southern trooj s. We leant
that their factory was set on fire yesterday
morning, about half past three o’clock, by a
party of daring, but dastardly scoundrels,
who, to the number of seven or eight, came
up and .attacked the watchman stationed
there, beating him badly. He did not, how
ever, yield quietly—two of the villains .were
knocked down, when a third, drew if revolver
and threatened to put a hall through him. If
he made more resistance. ' The party set fire.
to a lot of wrapping paper contained in the
office, when the guard, having summoned the
watch in a loud tone of voice, the Incendiaries
left, having previously ascended to the top of
the building and stolen the flag which was
flying therefrom.
Swindling the Tboops.—Great and very
natural disaffection exists among some of tha
Pennsylvania troops, aa we learn from Lan
«>«♦•»» on account of the outrageously bad
Sof the food-furnished them. It is said
e pork dealt out to the 14th and 15th
Regiments la actually putrid, and that for a
company of 74 men only fourteen poanda of
bread was fumlshed iecently for supper. The
matter win be thoroughly looked mlo by the
people, if not by the proper authorities.
