TUESDAY, AUGUST, 27,1861.
Have we any reason to expect Great
Britain to interest herself in the re-eataV
liciimPTit of law and order in the United
Stales ? None whatever. In so far as we
have been drawn toward England by af-
fection springing from kinship and ident
ity of institutions, in so far as we have
supposed that in this war, whose causes
were long ago planted by England herself,
we should have the moral support of her
sympathy, we have reckoned without our
In the first place, there is no affection la
England toward this country. There are
very few, even, of those who have been
here, who appreciate ns. The opinions of
the majority are based on a series of the
most abusive books of travel that were
ever published, and which could have
emanated only from English cockneyism.
They sec us through the eves of Mrs. Trol
lop, Capt, Bash Hall, Dickens, and the
London* Quarterly. To insular respecta
bility we are a tobacco-chewing, expecto
rating nation of ill-mannered, thievish ped-
lers. What is it to them that we have
stopped cheating for a moment, and gone
to cutting each other's threats t What
more could you expect from such a people,
who are, says the London Times, “ amena
ble neither to oeurtesy nor to misfortune—
nothing civilizes them.” The good opin
ions and kind wishes expressed in some of
the English papers, and by a few of her
eminent public men, are exceptions which
prove the rule.
In the next place, when John Ball talks
of Constitutional Liberty, he means an
Englishman's right to his own beef and
pudding. It would be unfair to compare
it to Mr. Pecksniff's delightful domestic
tenderness; but Mr. Bull’s constitutional
freedom is entirely limited to borne use.
Abroad be is apt to be tyrannical. He
does not care to have neighbors setting up
in tbe same constitutional business, cer
tainly will not aid them; and if their pros
perity affects bis trade, be is not at all scru
pulous in bis efforts to break them down.
His foreign policy has always been utterly
selfish. What does Motley say about it so
far back" as tbe time when Spain bad her
grip on tie Netherlands and tbe Protestant
religion, and with them free Government,
was threatened with annihilation? He de
scribes it in words that stamp it with trans
saw a Jesuit army take town after town of
that people identical in faith and interests
with her; she coldly looked upon devasta
tion and cruelties frightful to relate; and
at last when she saw that she herself would
be the next victim, came forward with her
tardy and parsimonious aid. England was
a bye-word in tbe Netherlands for treache
ry and rapacity. What has she done for
Poland ? She has held indignant popular
meetings and charity balls; but at the
Congress of Tienna, she was a party to
the partition of that ill-starred land; and
received as the consideration for her con
sent, Heligoland, at tbe mouth of tbe Elbe,
tbe Cape of Good Hope, and Malta. She
got Gibraltar and the lonian Isles by sim
ilar barter and sale of people. She forced
China, at tbe cannon’s mouth, to open her
ports to opium though the Government
persisted that the pernicious drug ought
to be kept from the people, and that was
done because opium is one of the greatest
products of India, and China the greatest
market for it England is the best friend that
the misshapen tyranny of Austriahas. The
Liberals of tbe Continent are indebted to
her for a refuge, no more. She does not
wish tbe Isthmus of Suez cut through, be
cause it will bring Prance too near to In
dia. In short, that insular peculiarity which
makes any Englisman know but one thing,
and know that well, governs the British
foreign policy. The diplomacy and wars
of Great Britain have been for her trade
and commercial greatness, and only for
them. The great Napolton, who was quite
as selfish, regarded only her foreign policy
when hepronounced hera“ nation ofshop
keepers.” And he was right.
The United States have no reason to ex
pect any different treatment. Those who
regard only the character of this war, and
who argue that the issues involved-should
give us the moral support of eveiy free
government, are talking to the winds.
Much more those who think that the cause
of this war, Slavery, should enlist on our
side England, the founder of American
Slavery. Bach amiable enthusiasts do not
observe that just at the present moment
the United States are offering to Great
Britain a most desirable opportunity to ad
vance her own commercial greatness.
Should the Confederate States become a
nation, they cannot help falling under a
virtual protectorate of Great Britain. She
will be the purchaser of their products, she
will furnish than her manufactures, do
their carrying, and protect them with her
navy. At the same time, the United
States, her most formidable maritime rival,
would be seriously crippled. That these
are substantially the facts which have guid
ed and will guide the English Govern
ment, is sure beyond a peradventure.
Without active interference, it will take
advantage of every opportunity to farther
the cause of the Confederates.
So long as the blockade is respected, the
cotton crop unsold, the Southern bands
tin purchased, and no subsidies advanced, I
we can afford to bear very quietly the
newspaper diatribes. We may soothe our
selves with remembering that the recent
military campaigns of England have not
been such great successes as to justify the
lofty criticisms of.the London Times. Ad
miral Napier sharpening his cutlass for his
Cronsiadt expedition, is a sufficiently ridi
culous figure, and Mr. Hassell’s own letters
from the Crimea furnish sufficiently dis
graceful accounts of military mismanage
ment and incapacity. If the Twin desires

of 1854, Let it recall its strictures on its

Star has it, on other people’s sensibilities,

SCSBTITy OF VESSELS OX THE
UKBS—HIGH FBEIGH rs.
The experience of the past two years
proves most conclusively that the number
of vessels on the great lakes is quite inad
equate to meet the requirements of the
growing trade of the Korthwest; and the
consequence is that enormous rates of
freight are exacted by vessel owners, to
the great loss of farmers and others inter
ested in agricultural prosperity. Last year,
from the middle of' August up to the close
of navigation, the rates charged for carry
ing a bushel of wheat from this point to
Buffalo, ranged from 12 to 18c, and during
the past week as high as 15 l-4c was paid.
The consequence »f this has been, that al
though the price of wheat advanced in
New Tort about 8c per bushel, the mar
ket declined here from 10 to 11c, and No.
S Spring wheat sunk as lew as 60c. To
attempt to ship com to New York at such
rates is amply ridiculous. The farmer in
Central Illinois takes up a New York pa
per and finds that there is a 'good Euro
pean demand for com at that port, at 49
asoc per bushel j but when he goes to the'
nearest station to offerea only
loe per bushel the addliioaal 40c being
tv* allowed up in freights, commisiong, &c,
—so that while the agriculturist is losing
money every lime he sells a bushel of pro- j
duoe,the carrier is making ahandsome for
tune. , Tor instance, a good sized schaoa
er, capable of 20,006 bushels of
com costs about SIB,OOO. Five cents per
buritfor com is a good paying freight—that
is, it pays the expenses of running, and a
fair profit to the owner besides. But sup
pose the shipper has to pay 15c per bn. —
here is a dear grim to the vessel of $2,000
per trip, over and above a lair refit.
Mine such trips will therefore give the
owner the money invested in the vessel
hack, with interest, and he has the vessel
besides, which is probably as good as new.
But all this time, the fanner is getting
poorer and poorer, till he is sold out of
house and home to pay his debts —all be
cause he has been at work raising produce
at 10c per bushel, in order to make vessel
But, we arc told, the “laws of supply
and demand arc inexorable.” Very true.
Wc know they are, or com would not sell
in New York at 50c and in Peoria at 10c
per bushel It is, however, our duly to set
this matter plainly before the world, so as
to encourage the investment of capital
in lake craft. At present, vessel owners
are realizing dividends of 50 per cent per
annum, while every body else is glad to
get 10 per cent; It is not probable that
this will he remedied till two or three new
fleets of vessels have been built; hut there
is a point below which the price of grain
ought not tc go, and there is also a limit
to the rates.of freight To say that it is
extortion on the part of the vessel owner
to take throe times more for carrying grain
than will afford him a good profit, is the
simple truth, and no one can gainsay it;
but it is in accordance with the “laws of
trade,” “supply and demand,” and so
forth, and the world looks upon it as a
“ fair commercial transaction.” It is, nev
It is said, on behalf of vessel-owners, that
for two years, when the crops were poor,
—IBSB and 1859—vessel-owners lost
money; but take the past five years to
gether, and we are safe in saying that ne
other kind of property has paid as high a
dividend as vessel property; and it is sur
prising that more capital does net seek in
vestment in it. In our opinion there is no
safer venture. The grain trade of Chica
go alone is doubling itself eveiy four or
five years \ but then thee is the growth of
the entire West, with all its ports, besides
the increase of the Lake Superior iron and
copper trade, and the direct European
trade. Every season, not less than seventy
five vessels have been engaged in carry
ing ore from Lake Superior, Mid there are
now upwards of fifty lake vessels on the
Atlantic. It will, therefore, be a very dif
ficult matter for vessel-builders to keep
pace with the requirements of the trade,
even if they were pushed to their greatest
capacity. A fleet of twenty vessels arriv
ing in the pert of Chicago is scarcely felt
During the past week the receipts of grain
in this city were upwards of 2,300,000 bu
shels, and although every vessel that ar
rived was loaded as speedily as possible,
only 1,183,000 bushels were shipped—leav
ing an excess of nearly 1,200,000 bushels
in one week. At present our warehouses
are nearly all filled, and unless we have
vessels soon, farmers will have to
cease sending grain to this city.
The well-infoimed Washington carres
pondent of the New York Evening Post
in his letter of Thursday last, says:
The stories of dissensions in the Cabinet are en
tirely without foundation. On no vital point is
there a disagreement between the members.
They are unanimously for pushing on the war just
so long as the people will furnish men and means.
The Government cannot make a great and suc
cessful campaign unless the people furnish half a
million of troops to fight the battles of the TJnlen.
The Government must not be blamed If the people
are unequal to the crisis. However this may be,
it is not true that the Cabinet is divided or is in a
quarrelsome condition. Nothing could b 3 further
from the truth. The idea that any member will
leave the Cabinet Is also without foundation.
The President expresses himself very decidedly
•n this head, and there is an end of the matter, for
the present, at least.
This, we assumes, is conclusive.
The Blockading Fleet*
We give elsewhere, as a matter of peculiar
interest at this time, a complete list of the na
tional vessels doing duty as a blockading fleet
off the southern harbors, together with the
names of the vessels recently bought by the
Government to add to the efficiency of the
service. It win be seen that we now have
; but forty-six vessels of all kinds on active du
ty, a fact which accounts for the complaints
re. peeling the inefficiency of the blockade so
far. To these will be added, by the Ist of Sep
tember, forty-four vessels now getting ready
in the Government dockyards, and by the
middle of October it is hoped the twenty
three tmall and eight first class gunboats will
be in readiness for active duty. By that time,
even if no more vessels are bought, we shall
have one hundred mid twenty-one vessels,
mounting twelve hundred and thirty-six
guns, keeping watch and ward over the whole
southern coast. As Government has not
ceased buying ships, it is not unlikely that
forty more vessels may be bought for the same
purpose. With this large fleet, mid with the
proposed sinking of old vessels, laden with
stone, at the mouths of the smaller southern
inlets, the blockade will be rendered as effect
ive as the most scrupulous stickler for inter
national laws can desire.
Direct Tax in 1814*
A direct tax of six millions was levied by
Congress, in 1814, for the support of the war
with .Great Britain. The following are the
quotas assigned ts each State:
N .Hampshire $198,586.74 Virginia $738,860.83

Delaware 64,692 90
Maryland 808,947.60 Total $6,000,000.00
This was a much heavier tax, according to
property and population, than the twenty
millions levied by the last session of Congress.
None but the Federalists objected to paying it,
who were opposed to the war, and for that
opposition suffered annihilation. Only seces

A large meeting of the friends of the Union I
and “a vigorous prosecution of the war,”
vras held at Milwaukee on Frida; evening,
Hoc. George Walker presiding. Warm-heart

During the remarks of Judge Huhbell, an in

a striking Illustration of the confidence which
the people put in the gallant leader of our
Western army. Among other resolutions
passed was the following:

Total population’, ; 281,766
The whole population of Virginia in 1861
was 1,593,199, including 495,826 slaves, leaving
a white population of 1,097,373. There are
only 6,238 slaves In the thirty-eight counties
embraced in the new State of Kanawha, so
♦hat in losing this population of 281,786, Vir
ginia loses about one fourth of her white in
habitants. As there are a number of other
counties that will be sure -to come into the
new State if the Federal Government affords
their people sufficient protection, the loss will
soon be still greater. Moreover, the territory
of Kanawha, including the fine valley of the
liver of that name, and the fertile region along
the Ohio, is as fine as any in the State, and m
the decade between 1850 and 1860 population
increased there more rapidly than in any other
part of Virginia.
The ordinance provides that the new State
shall assume her due share of the public debt
of Virginia. The responsibilities to be as
sumed are defined in the ninth section:
Sec. 9. Bald new State ahali take upon it
self a just proportion of the public debt ot the
commonwealth of Virginia prior to the Ist
day of January, 1861, to be ascertained by
charging to it all State expenditures within
the limits thereof, and just proportion of the
ordinary expenses of the State Government
since any part of said debt contracted,
and deducting therefrom the moneys paid into
the treasury ot the commonwealth from the
counties included within the said new State
within the same period. All private rights
and Interests In lands within the proposed
State derived from the laws of Virginia prior
to aucli separation shall remain valid and se ■
cure under the laws of the proposed State,
end shall be determined by the laws now ex
isting In the State of Virginia.
What Ohio Is Doing.
The extent of the military preparations
making in Ohio seems to have been over
looked ; but whatever may have been, the
fact will soon be realized that the Buckeyes
are not to be an unimportant item in the war.
'Where all have done so well, comparison
would seem invidious. It is but stating facts,
however, that Ohio win soon have in the field
not less than 60,000 troops for the war. The
enumeration of infantry regiments has reached
the 49tb, starting at the Ist,and there will be 6
regiments each of artillery and cavalry, or the
equivalent thereto in detached bodies. All the
three months’ regiments—being 11—are in pro
cess of reconstruction, most of them with
their old field officers. There axe now about
25,000 troops in the service, for the war, the
most of them in Western Virginia, with- two
or three regiments (and more to follow) in
Missouri. The remaining regiments are in a
condition of more or less completeness, and
probably not less than a regiment a day -will
be sent off until all are gone. Among the
newly appointed Colonels are Charles Whit
tlesey of Cleveland, an ex-army officer, and
well known in the West as a civil engineer:
Cok SohimmelpfenniDg, of the 37 th (German)
regiment, a Prussian officer of note, and an
associate in arms of Gen. Sigel; William H.
Gibson, of Tiffin, of the 49fch; Moses B. Wal
ker, of Findlay, of the 31st; Hugh Ewing,
of Lancaster, of the 30th; Thomas H. Ford,
of Mansfield, of the 32d, etc.
The official list shows that fifty-three Brig*
adler Generals in all have been appointed by
the President for the volunteer service, besides
a half dozen, on the army list. Seventeen have
been named since the adjournment of Con
gress, while sixteen of the whole number have
been taken from the army, twenty others that
bave had a West Point education are either
restored to the service cr promoted from the
volutnteere. Thirteen only are called from
civil life, and of these Baker, Shields, Lander,
etc., have seen service. Two others, (Sigel
and Bleaker), to complete the number of
fitly-one, have had a military education la
Europe. The list is a good one.
Surgeon General Flniejr.
A correspondent desires ns to correct an
error In the age of Surgeon General C. A.
Finley, of the army, who has been put down
at 75. The Doctor was bom in 1797, conse
quently is now 61 years of age, and a man of
good health and vigor. He entered the army
in 1818, and has been in the service since that
date—a period of 43 years.
Obstacle Removed.— One great obsta
cle in the way of recruiting for the volunteer
service has been removed by the following
section of an act passed by Congress on the
22d of July last. A great many men have re
fused to enlist because they could not leave
th.ii families provided for, but now that their
wives can draw their pay and also receive
their allowance from the volunteer fund, this
difficulty no longer presents itself:
That the Secretary of War be, and is hereby
authorized and directed to introduce amnng
tbe volunteer forces in the service of the
United States, the system of allotment tickets
now used in the navy, or some equivalent
system, by which the family of the volunteer
may draw such portions of his pay as he niay
This has been sent to the officers of the
United States army in command, among the
general orders recently issued from the head
quarters of the army. We hope it will be ex
tensively published throughout the country.
Minnesota. —The leading Democrats of St.
Paul have issued an address to the Democrats
of the State, urging upon them the propriety
of forgetting all past political differences and
unite in one grand People's Union Party to
“save our country from destruction.” In or
der to do this, “it is not contemplated that
Democrats or Republicans must yield any
political principles for which they have hith
erto contended. It is not proposed to con
sider or define a line of policy with reference
to any of the questions that have heretofore
divided parties. The object is, a union of all
patriots for a vigorous prosecution of the war,
until the rebellion shall be unconditionally
subdued, and the authority of the Govern
ment re-established In all of the States—aad
to this end alone.*'
■Resignation or Yolunteeb Officers
The whole number of volunteer officers who
have resigned since the Bull Bun battle is two
hundred and fifty-seven. Of this number, one
hundred and eighty-two are from the State of
New Tort and fifty-eight from Western Regi
merits. The causes of these resignations have
not been made public, but it is understood
that incompetence has been the ruling influ
ence In praducing«thc work. About forty of
the number resigned on account of dissatisfac
tion, or because promises made to them wore
not fulfilled. The places of all will, without
doubt, be filled with better men.

The good people of Paducah got even -with

secession steamer W. B. Terry. In less than
five hours after the Terry was taken they were
in possession of the steamer Bam o it—-the
regular mail packet between Paducah and Ev
ansville. The Orr left Evansville with the
mails and a full cargo of groceries, and by ten
o’clock was lying at the Paducah wharf
Hardly had she landed, however, before a mob
of some twenty men, under the leadership of
one White Fowler, and the Captain of the
Terry, Jibe Johnson, went on hoard and with
pistols and knives drove the passengers, offi
cers, and crew, off the boat, declaring the
craft a prize to the Southern Confederacy.
They would not give the crew time to get
their clothes, hut In the most villainous and
ruffianly manner drove them hurriedly from
the boat and immediately pushed off up
the Tennessee river. The boat was command
ed by W. H. McCluny, by whom and Lewis
Cohn and W. H. Longnccker she is owned.
Her value is probably 110,000. Her cargo was
consigned to parties in Paducah, worth eight

and, without a word of remonstrance from the
rebel crowd, the Terry’s lines were cut and
the boat towed out of harbor.
Five scouts from this camp, out prospecting

Tic rebels were repulsed without loss to either
party. The scouts report the rebels to be five

They have three or four small encampments
between Benton and Commerce, and within a
mile of the latter place a small artillery squad,
with a couple of six pounders.
The gun-boat Tyler, lying within reach of
Commerce at the head of Cat Island, was
fired into Thursday night, from the Missouri
shore. The shots were from muskets, how
ever, and did no damage. The rebels at Ben
ton are said to be building large numbers of
skiffs and flat-boats. Every board pile and
fence, within miles of that place, has been
drawn on for lumber material. What they
intend doing with their boats, is known to
only two parties—the devil and the builders.
May be they will dare to attempt the passage
of the Mississippi with them;* may be they
will not; but if they do, the Lord have mercy
on their souls, for the guns of the Tyler will
quickly put them traveling towards Jordan.

Dr, Godfrey Aigner, of New York City, is
here on business connected with the Sanitary

by Dr. Sim, U. S. Medical Director for this
post, and the various surgeons of the brigade.
CoL Oglesby is still in command of this
post, and from a statement made in Wednes
day’s Missouri j regarding the dispo
sition of Gen. Prentiss, it would seem that the
Colonel is likely to occupy the position for an
indefinite length of time to come. Gen. Pren
tiss is to be a Division Commander, having
charge of the troops at Irontoa, Caps Girar

may be, according to the opinion of everybody
hereabouts, he Is the right man in the right
place as post Commander at the junction of
the Ohio and Mississippi. L. 0.

Fonx Scott, Ang. IS, 1861.
The tidings of the late battle and death of
Gen. Lyon,which arrived here four days since,
have caused a considerable increase of the
Home Guards and everything is being done to
prevent a surprise and to repel any attack that
may be made. The Home Guards number
about 250 men and our command about 300.
In case of an attack, I ihii.k; there could be
raised 800 men.
Yesterday a part of our command, (Capt,
Williams) 50 men, took a trip on the “ sacred
soil, first visiting the residence of one Karnes,
who hag been getting np a secesh company,
but he had leit the day before, taking bis com
pany with him. We picketed our horses and,
It being noon, appropriated what eatables
there were in that vicinity to our own use.
There uot being enough provisions at Karnes’s
and three houses being close by, the command
was divided into three squads. One squad
took a man prisoner, who was armed with a
revolver and a double barrelled shot gun. He
owned that he was a secessionist and said that
he was captain of a company. He is now here
In custody, but denies what he first stated.
'We heard of a company at Nevada City,
abcut 8 miles distant, which numbered 70
men, and, notwithstanding our number was
only 50, it was decided wc should go and
“ clean them out.” It was about six o’clock
when we arrived in the vicinity. The enemy,
having heard of our approach, were drawn
up in the center of the city. When we were
within one-fourth ot a mile from the city, the
command, “Forward—on the gallop!” was
given by Capt. Williams, he. taking the lead.
Just as we got to the center of the city, the
chivalry was seen making ‘‘double quick”
tow aid the timber. They were followed, and
some of them being hard pressed, tamed and
fired. One of our men, seeing a man aim at
him, bis gun resting across a fence, tamed iu
the saddle so that the horse screened bim.
The shot went through the horse’s neck and
within four inches of the man’s head. The
seccsher then turned and ran, but a Sharp’s
rifle ball overtook and stopped him.
A man shot at Lieut. Brown and then aimed
a blow at his head with the butt of his gun,
knocking the Lieut's hat off, but the force ot
the blow was received on the -back of his
hand. The man then tried to secede, but his
constitution wasn’t strong enough to take
eleven of “Sharp’s Pills,” so he felL We
don’t know the exact number killed; some
tay five, and others seven. There were eight
herses taken and one wagon which was loaded
with goods, and all broucht into camp. We
got in at 3 o’clock this morning, having been
in the saddle 19 hours.
There will be an expedition to a place called
Bz.U’c> Mill next Monday. It is about 20 miles
from here and the enemy number 300, armed
with Minie rifles and muskets. It will proba
bly take about 100 of ns to satisfy them.
Col. Montgomery arrived yesterday; his
train is expected next Wednesday.
A man came in this evening bringing news
of 15,000 men within two days march of this
place, well armed and having artillery.

In addition to those enumerated by name
above, there are about fifteen other vessels
fitting out at eastern and other ports.
From the above statistics It ■will be seen
that we have forty-six vessels of all classes
employed in active blockade duty, these ves
sels carrying in the aggreate five hundred and
ninety-five guns. Also the names of forty
four additions to the fleet, mounting two hun
dred and forty guns. These vessels are being
rapidly fitted for service, and most of them
wul be at their posts by the first of Septem
ber, so that om that date we should have nearly
eight hundred aad fifty guns afloat. By the
middle of October the new gunboats will be
gin to be ready to be put in commission.
Of these there are twenty-three, each carry
ing thirteen guns, so that by this fleet we have
an addition of two hundred and ninety-nine
guns. And th ere are also eight first- class gun
boats, carrying fourteen guns, which will be
ready for sea by the latter part of October,
making one hundred and twelve more addi
tional guns. This will give a grand total of
one thousand two hundred and thirty-six guns
The board cf naval (vessel) examiners are
busy every day inspecting vessels, and as soon
as a vessel can be found worthy of the pur
chase, she is at once sent to some shipyard te
be converted into a war vessel
There are many obstacles in the way of the
purchase cf vessels. Most of the light-draft
steamers are so constructed that their boilers
and machinery are above water-mark, and one
wtll directed shot would disable them; many
of the hulls arc rotten, and in some cases ex
orbitant prices have been asked for them.
Considering the difficulties under which they
have labored, they deserve great credit for
what they have done, although the public ser
vice seems to demand that the work of dis
patching vessels should proceed with more

An officer who came from Banks’s column
yesterday says the Maryland side is filled
with refugees from Loudon county, Ya., who
are keening out of the way of the rebels, now
engaged in impressing the men and plunder

It is stated that Lieut Klmmell, of the 2d
Cavalry, who was at Bull Run with a part of
his regiment, bss resigned his commission
and accepted a captaincy in the rebel cavalry
in Missouri. He had the new commission
before the battle.
Authentic intelligence received from Ma
nassas states that immediately after the battle
ol Ball Bun, the rebel authorities made ex
traordinary exertions to bring forward troops,
resulting in the transportation of large forces
from Tennessee to Virginia, which had been
held at home for defensive operations on the
Mississippi. The Cotton States had also for
warded large numbers —all that could be
spared from home, and Beauregard has now a
larger force than at any previous time. How
ever great the necessity for him to commence
an onward movement to prevent his army
from dissolution, yet no fears are expressed
that he will venture an attack on our lines.
Foreign raniin at New York, via last steam

disaster at its full extent, but there is a dispo
sition on the Continent to give the Northern
troops more credit for bearing and endurance
than our own papers have claimed, and their
fighting in front of heavy works being consid
ered by military men as giving them so great
an advantage as to make it a matter of wonder
that raw recruits could have been induced to
assault them under such disadvantages. Our
Ministers do not disguise the fact that the
Government has suffered severely in the esti
mation of Europeans by the disaster, but they
are confident that no movement to recognize
the rebels as a nation will be made so long as
the Government maintains its forces on the
soil of the rebel States. The feeling on the
Continent was generally that the Nerth would
be aroused by the disaster to its army, and
that the defeat closed the door to any arrange
ment with the rebels. British Government
officials appear to be impressed with the be
lief that the battle and defeat would only pro
long the contest without deciding anything.

Beton of Dr. Lnvla of Use SectiA
[From the Detroit Tribune.]
Surgeon Lewis, of the Second Wisconsin
•Rjgfmpnt, was taken prisoner at the battle of
BnllEun,and was among the number of sur
geons released on parole and conveyed to For
tress Monroe nnder a flagof trace. He is on
Ids way to his home in Wisconsin, and stop
ped over in this dty yesterday for the purpose
of calling npon E. K. Wilcox, Esq., to deliver
a message from the Colonel, now in Richmond.
From him we have obtained the following in
teresting facts relative to the manner in which
Colonel Wilcox and himself were taken pris
•ners, and their treatment since the battle:
All surgeons taken on the field of battle
while caring for the wounded, were released
and sent North, while those who were taken
while fleeing from the field are held cl°sa
prisoners of war. Dr. Lewis had been sepa
rated from his regiment by the changes of bat
tle, and when the rout commenced he was en
gaged in relieving the sufferings of our
wounded soldiers, without reference to their
regiments. Having done what he could for
those brought to him, he was attempting to
cross the field to where he supposed hii regl •
ment was stationed, when he was met by a
company of rebel cavalry, who took him to be a
rebel soldier from bis dress, which was similar
to their own. Having by tins time learned of
the panic and retreat of the Union troops, and
knowing that many of our soldiers must hare
been left wounded on the field, he explained :
to the Captain of the cavalry his rank, and |
delivered himself a prisoner of war, that he
might be near the wounded of his regiment,
which had suffered greatly during the tight.
Ee was taken to one of the hospitals where
the wounded were being brought in large
numbers, and soon after his arrival, and ia
the course of his professional duties, met CoL
■Wilcox, whom he found wounded in the right
arm, half way between the elbow and wrist,
by a minie trail, which had plowed a farrow
in the fleshy portion of the "arm for several
inches, laying bare the bone. This was the
only wound. His horse was shot under him :
about the same time, receiving a bail in the i
neck, which killed him almost instantly. At
the time he receded his wound, he was some
distance in advance of his regiment, which
was also in advance of the field. He had suc
ceeded in turning the position of the enemy,
and was firing into their backs, when rein
forcements came up and nearly surrounded
the regiment, obliging them to mil back. The
Colonel being wounded, and very weak from
the loss of Wood, without a horse, was una
ble to reach his regiment, but was assisted by
Capt. Withingion and four men into a piece
of woods near by. Before reaching the cover
of the woods they were attacked by a compar
atively large body of rebel infantry, who were
driven back by the noble fellows who had re
mained with tneir Colonel, The Colonel has
since said that had it not been for the brave
ry of his comrades at this juncture, they
would have all been killed npon the spot.
Soon after the woods were gained, a much lar
ger force of rebels, commanded by Colonel
Preston, came upon them, and Colonel Wil
cox was in a very brutal manner ordered to
surrender. He delivered his sword to Colonel
Preston, to whom he explained his rank, and
was thereafter treated in a more gentlemanly
manner, and conducted to the hospital, where
he met Dr. Lewis, Capt. Withmgtou remain
ing close beside him. Soon afterwards Capt.
Rickets, of the Light Artillery, whose battery
had done such terrific work among the rebels
that day, was also brought in and placed near
They were kept at this place three weeks,
and were then taken to Richmond, where
Colonel Wilcox, Captain and Mrs. Kickets.
and Br. Lewis, occupied a room In the general
hospital. Captain Withington, who was not
wounded, occupied a small room adjoining.
The Doctor remained there a week, and was
then released upon giving his parole not to
fight for or to render aid to the Government
forces until exchanged. When he left Rich
mond Colonel Wilcox was rapidly recover
ing from the effects of his wound, and was
able to walk ab out the hospital and the grounds
adjacent. This was the extent of the libeity
allowed him by his captors. The Doctor is
quite confident that he will have perfect use
of bis aim in the course of a few months. The
Colonel seemed quite impatient at the pros
pect of a long imprisonment, but he looked
upon it philosophically,and had determined to
endure patiently what could not be cured.
He had started out in this work determined
to do all in his power to put down the rebel
lion, and it makes his Imprisonment the more
difficult to bear as he knows so well the stu
pendoGE efforts being made by the traitors to
destroy the liberties of his country.
The object for which D?. Lewis submitted
to imprisonment was fully accomplished. He
found among, the prisoners forty of his own
regiment, many of them quite severely wound
ed, and he was thus permitted to do much In
alleviating their sufferings. It was very fortu
nate for our wounded that a large quantity of
medical supplies were taken by the rebels, as
without these the suffering must have been
very great. This appears to have been a to
tally neglected department In the rebel army,
probably on account of the blockade and the
strict surveillance of our Northern officers
over everything that passes South.
The Doctor’s account of the battle does not
differ materially from those already published.
He describes iz as at times most terrible, and
the fighting of onr troops np to the moment
the unfortunate panic took place, was all that
could have been. expected. He at one time
saw two regiments within sixty yards of each
other, sending and receiving bullets like vet
erans. At last the firing of the Unionists was
too severe, and the rebel regiment retreated.
The rebels themselves admit that onr troops
fkht equally as well as they, and that they
were badly beaten when Johnston’s force ar
rived. Soldiers under Johnston stated that
before they reached Manassas they were
every few moments met by couriers who re
ported that the Confederates were being
driven back, were badly whipped, were ut
terly routed, and begged them to hurry to the
All the Federal Surgeons who fell into the
hands of the rebels, are united In the opinion
that our men are much the best marksmen
both with musket and cannon. The loss of
the rebels could not have been, less than
double that of ours, while the wounds sus
tained by them were much more severe. Bat
few of our men were wounded iu the body,
the legs and arms seeming to have been the
