"WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1, 18G3.
TO OCB FRIENDS,
The kiad response of our friends in sup
plying ns with. back numbers oftheTni

and ample. "Wo.nccd no more. Unr files

TUB NEWS,
There was a glorious Union rally in the
Capitol yesterday, and sound loyalty was
promulgated by Andy Johnson, Judge
Cartter and other speakers.
The rumors still come that the rebels arc
evacuating Richmond. We place little
credit in die statement, and doubt if it will
have any effect on the disposition of our
troops in Virginia. It will require stiff
fighting yet to take Richmond, unless the
bogus-Confederacy drops to pieces from
the ruin visited in other quarters.
The foreign news by the Ilansa is inte
resting and important. The Polish revo
lution is assuming larger proportions. The
French policy concerning the struggling
patriots is still undecided, with a leaning,
however, to the support of their cause.
The news from the Lower Mississippi is
still conflicting. The mysteiy connected
with the situation about Vicksburg is as
far as ever from being cleared up. From
the Tazoo Pass expedition, and the expe
dition of Gen. Sherman through Steele’s
•Bayou, not enough is yet authentically
known to form an opinion of present or
prospective results.
Our own correspondent sends us from
Cairo an interesting sketch of the daring
achievement of Farragut in running past
Port Hudson. Its main features had
been anticipated previously from New
Orleans.
The statement of an escaped Federal
officer will be read with, interest. He
gives a list of Lis fellow officers, since
transferred to the Libby Prison at Rich
mond.
CHICAGO TO LAKE SI'PERIOB.
Of great importance do we deem the
opening of the inland route to Lake Supe
rior, from this city, that we give elsewhere
a diagram of tbe line, and a detailed refer
ence to the main features of -the enterprise.
The C. & N. "W. It It, which now connects
Chicago with Green Bay, was commenced
in 1852, as the Rock River Railroad, and
slowly found its way to Janesville—and it
was not until 1858 that it was completed
through to Fond du Lac. In 1860 it was ex
tended to Oshkosh; in 1861 to Appleton,
and finally in 1862 to Green Bay.
Our townsman, Hon. William B. Og-
den, we trust will find in its present
success and credit, some consideration
for his long and arduous labors In its be
half. Now that he comes forward to ask
our citizens to to do something to add still
itorc to this magnificent line, we arc sure
that no indifference will be manifested or
Jack of confidence exist.
The opening of any route across the Pe
ninsula dates back only two seasons! The
delegate from Lake Superior to the Chica
go Convention, which nominated Lincoln,
In 1860, came through ou foot, and by
crossing the rivers on rafts, which himself
and comrades kad to Improvise at every
Stream! C. T. Harvey, esq., notv o£ tins
city who superintends the construction of
the Ship Canal, around the Falls of the St.
Jiarys, opened the first tvay of access in
1861, and Jlre. Harvey was the first white
lady to cross over the ronte in summer,
•which she did on horseback the same
Season. The surveys for a railroad were
completed late last season, and
■now when the railroad is done,
it is safe to say that it will be the most
popular and best patronized route for sum
mer pleasure travel, such as seeks Lake
Ceorge and the "White Mountains, of any
joule in the West, if not, also, in the East
"We predict that, before many seasons,
trains will be seen leaving Chicago during
dog days with two or three hundred pas-
ECngers, seeking the wild scenery and cool
•breezes of Lake Superior, for their sum
mer resort. The important business feat
ures of the route are elsewhere given.

C»CH* Herron Succeeds Gen. Schofield.
St. Louis, March 31.—Gen. Herron’s ap
•nointment to the command of the army of
the Frontier was officially promulgated to
<Jav. The General is on his way to the field,
and It Is well known be will seek to put into
cfleet a plan requiring celerity of movement,
and dashing qualities in officers, for indicting
p severe and unexpected blow at the rebels.
Gens. Orm and Vandeverhave been assign
ed to the command of divisions under Gen.
Herron. Lively news may be expected in a
few davs. The steamboat Robert Campbell
which left yesterday for the Missouri River,
carried a guard of soldiers, with four howit

nothing new regarding the threatened demon
strations by the secessionists on Marc Island,
gainst the Navy Yard and Benecla Arsenal.
The public are informed of no circumstances
which warranted the alarm manifested by-the
authorities, although all commend their dis
position, to take every precaution to coard
againbt possible danger. There arc many
eecc&h sympathizers in Napa county, though
Sot, as Is presumed, enough to encourage the
most duriugtotake up arms against the au

The Peninsula Railroad.
Wc are glad to be able to state that the Im
portant project of virtually extending the
Chicago and Northwestern Railroad via Green
Bay to Lake Superior, by the construction of
the PcmuEuia Railroad, is meeting with the
approval and endorsement of our best busl-
ness men and most discreet capitalists. Less
than one week ago, lion. Wo. B. Ogjden pre
scnlcdithc claims of this new enterprise to
our business men, in an address before the
Board of Trade. Upwards of one-half of the
imounl solicited from the business men of
Uiis city is already subscribed. Those who de-
sire to aid in advancing one of the most im
portant enterprises now proposedfor Chicago
and tbe Northwest, will not ignore the pre
sent opportunity of subscribing to the stock
or securities of the Peninsula Railroad.
The effect of the operations of the Peninsu
la Railroad when constructed, in transferring
the bulk of the trade of Lake Superior to
Green Buy, or on to the waters of Lake Mich-
igan, Is too manifest and certain to require
explanation or argument. The geographical
position of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
decides that such result will ultimatelyfollow
the opening of a short line of easy grades, as
this route is proved to be.
The Right ot Way is nearly all secured by
donation, and without co-t to the Company.
Congress donated it through the United
Slates’ lands." The State of Michigan has pro-
vid*d for the same privileges through the
State lands. The St. Mary’s Canal Mineral
Land Company have tendered the same
through the lauds of that Company,%whlch
will embrace several miles. All private own
ers have responded thereto with like liber-
ality.
Marinette, the northern. terminus of the
road, is situated on the'Bhores of abay, or
■indentation of the coast"of Lake Superior,
where extensive docks are already erected,
which the road can avail Itself of, doubtless,
or adopt other conveniences, plana of which
will be submitted to the Directors, whenever
desired.
Tbe bay at Marquette is ample for the ac-
commodation of all the shipping interests,
present and future, which the commerce of
the country will require, and it Is generally
open as early in the spring, and as late in.the
fall, as any other harbor on the Lake. A rail
way to that point would enable the people on
the Lake to ship at least two mouths longer
than they now do. December* and April
•wonld then bo included in the season of navi
gation, and would then be about as safe far
staunch made, iron or copper-plated propel-
lers, as any in the year.
The Southern terminus of th« Road at Lit
tle Bny de Koc. is sill that could, be desired as
a harbor for commercial purposes. Perfectly
land-locked, its basin of four miles long by
two miles wide, with an entrance of a mile
wide, permits ships to sail in without danger
or delay, at all times. Its depth of water
being some eight fathoms inside, and holding
not less than five fathoms all the way in Irom
Lake Michigan, with bold shores inside and
down the coast on the East aide, the convic
tion is almost forced upon tho mind that ua
tnre intended it as the outlet, or depot, of the
vast mineral wealth lying In tho regions
stretching away to the North andWcsk. The
construction of Docks for the Company’s use
can be acccomplished on the shores of this
Bay with great economy.
By the railroad across tho Peninsula, the
boisterous passage along the south shore of
Lake Superior, where the prevailing norther
ly winds have a lull sweep of hundreds of
miles, tending to drive vessels into a Ice
shore, ore matters which will be duly consid
ered by seamen. In a round trip to Cleveland
or Bnflhlo, 200 miles of sailing distance will
be faved, and to Chicago, SOO miles or more.
The farther feature is gained of touching
Lake Superior near Us commercial centre,
and becoming the main channel for influx of
Supplies and merchandise from Northern "Wis
consin and Chicago, and by this connection
seeming for that hitherto remote region, a
Irvc traffic and intercourse with the rest of
mankind, the year round.
This road being enabled to bring away Lake
Superior copper a month earlier and a month
later, each season, than via the Sant Canal,
would be able to charge higher rates in fall
and spring thnp in summer, and thus compete
successfully for the traffic at fair prices, on
an average, per season. The same remark
uUo applies to pig iron.
The interest on the value of a ton of cop*
per ($400), each month. Is $2.50. A mining
company could, tlierefore, uflord to pay sls
per ton freight across the Peninsula, from the
20Qi of November each year. The road might
have have had boats running to it from all
points on Lake Superior, and from Chicago,
to the 20th of January of the present year.
We might indeed borrow a page from this
not far off future, and point to the vast
region lying northwest from Lake Superior,
and demonstrate that within the next twenty
five years there must be a largely traveled
route from the west and northwest shore of
the Lake into the region of the Lake of tho
Woods and Lake Winnepeg, and the valleys
of the Red River, Asslnniboin and Saskatcha
wan Rivers, both for pleasure and business,
and that such travel will mainly go via this
route is inevitable.
We must not forget the advantages of the
travelling public. Passengers can go, via this
route, from Marquette to Chicago, la twenty
four hours, to Cleveland in thirty-sis hours,
and to New York in forty-eight hours, avoid
ing the dangers of the lake navigation alto
gether. This will forma great pleasure route
from Chicago, the South and West, to Lake
Superior and to St. Paul, via Bayfield or Su
perior City. It is believed that, with this
route opened, the pleasure travel to Lake Su
perior would be at once quadrupled.

Mount or the Cakal Above Vicksburg, I
March 25th, 19G3. f
Admiral Farragut requested that an Iron
clad and two rams might be sent down to
him, anticipating danger from below. The
rams Lancaster and Switzerland were ordered
dow nby Gen. Ellet, with picked crews. The
%

Vj
former was commanded by Lieut. Col. Jno.
A. Ellet, and tbc latter by Col. Gluts. B. EUet.
The runs started to run the Vicksburg bat
teries at five o’clock this morning, having
been unavoidably delayed. The Switzerland
took the lead, and had reached midway be
tween the batteries when a shot struck the
boiler, exploding it and scalding three ne
groes badly, and the mate, G. Connor,
slightly. The vessel thep floated down the
river, and was taken in tow by the Albatross.
Her damage is alight, and she will be fit for
service in a day or two.
The Lancaster, less fortunate, was struck
soon after passing the first battery, one shot
striking her,almost splitting her hull In twain,
and several passing through her boilers and
cutties her steam pipe. She soon com
menced to sink, but fearing she might fill
luto the hands of the rebels, Lieut. Colonel
Ellet discharged bis revolver into the cotton
around her boilers and set her on tiro.
Her bow went under, however, and is a
few seconds the vessel disappeared beneath
the cngulphing waves.
One of her pilots, Thos. L. W. Kitson, lost
a leg, and H. S. Brown, her engineer, was
slightly scalded. Orderly Sergeant William
McDonald Is missing, and was probably
drowned.
The crews of the vessels behaved nobly,and
obeyed orders promptly. To this they arc
indebted for their escape from death In ten
fold terrible forms.
The batteries at Wairenton opened on the
Hartford to prevent her from going, up to
cany out her part of the programme, bat
with the exception of two or three men.
slightly wounded, she escaped damage..
The rebels planted heavy guns opposite the
canal, wliich has been abandoned as a failure,
on account of tholr deadly range.
There is a heavily cascmatcd work in course
of construction at Warrenton, which Farragut
shelled twice, but-no reply was made by the
batteries. He has received a supply of-coal

Caiko, March 3L —The expedition, from
which we had been led to expect so much,
under Gen. Sherman, to the rear of Haines’
Bluff, by way of Steele’s Bayou, is a failure,
and the entire force has- returned to Young’s
Point.
Wehave nothing- fiirtbcr from tho Thzoo

A letter from the frigate Hartford reports
that she got aground once passing Port Hud

At Grand Gnlf she was also struck frequently.
Her total loss was two seamen killed, anti six
wounded —all slightly.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Mexphis, March 20, via. Cairo, March 31,
The canal opposite .Vicksburg, in* conse
quence of the sudden overflow before report
ed, is partly filled with mud and sand, aud
useless.
The reported failure of Gen. V*. T. Sher-
man's expedition to the rear of Haines’ Bluff,
is unfounded. At last accounts it bad reach
ed the Yazoo river with a large force.
The Bello Peoria, arrived from Young’s
Point, reports that a huge number of Confed
erates have gone up tho Yazoo river from
Vicksburg, and that Commodore Porter's
.fleet, or a portion of it, has been hemmed In
above and below Haines' Bluff, by felling tree*
across the stream, which is very narrow at
this point.
A large force of Fedcrals was sent up, and
Porter rescued from bis perilous position.
It is since reported In our fleet, that Haines’
Blnffhas been evacuated. Probably it is not
so. Deserters stato that all the Confederates
bod to subsist for some time, on corn bread
and molasses.
Cairo, March 31.— l Our news from Vicks
burg and vicinity is important. The joint at
tempt of Admiral Porter and Gen. Sherman
to flank Haines' Bluff is a failure. The gun
boats had proceeded through Steele's and
Black’s Bayou, and into Deer River, when
they encountered a considerable force of reb
els yrho obstructedtheir passage both in front
and rear by felling trees, and the report is
that they were only saved from capture by
the timely arrival of infantry.
This whole expedition had returned to
Young’s Point.

FROM FARRAGUT'S FLEET.
The Expedition Against
Port Hudson.
Farragut at Natchez, Grand
Gulf, &c.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Cairo, March 81, 13G3.
Tour correspondent accompanied Farra
gut’s fleet from New Orleans, and came up
-on the Hartford to Young’s Point.
Gen. Banks left New Orleans on the 9th
iust., arrived at Baton Kongo on the llth-and
12th, disembarked and reviewed thctroopß at
that pest. On tbe 12tb and 13th the forces,
were put again on transports, and the fleet
steamed up until within sis or seven miles of
Port Hudson. Here wc lost sight of tbe laud
forces.
On the night of the 34th, expecting support
from Gen. Banks, Farragut started with the
following steamers in pairs:
ALBATBOS3,
KISXO.
IIAIiTFOKD.
JIICnMOKD.
MOSOKGAHELA.
GESESEE.
MISSISSIPPI.
We started up the river at 11’ o’clock at
night, arrived off Fort Hudson, ami a furious
bombardment commenced. It is not known,
whether General Banks co-operatcd or not.
The steamers Essex and Sachem and six mor
tar boats arrived three miles below Port
Hudson, and also kept up constant fire upon
the rebel batteries. ’While engaged under
the batteries two rebel rams endeavored to
engage the Hartford and Albatross, but
were beaten- off by a succession of heavy
broadsides. This engagement was
kept up briskly ou both aides.
and lasted for some time when, finally,
the fleet steamed boldly past tbebatteries,un
der fire. After passing, the Hartford and Al
batross being lashed together, grounded,, the
former sticking tight for five minutes, all the
time subjected to a galling cannonade. She
finally got off and steamed above. After
wards the Richmond ran aground at the same
place, as did the Mississippi The latter boat
did not escape so well, for while trying to get
clear she took Ore from some unknown cause 9.
This caused a momentary confusion, and all
efforts were made to extinguish the fire and
save the crew.
"While this was going on, all the fleet but
the Hartford and Albatross, along with the
burning steamer, drifted*down before the
entire length of the rebel batteries, all the
time under the same scathing fire. Tho guns
of the Mississippi exploded as she passed, as
though In scorn of the rebels on shore, to
whom the spectacle must hare been sublime
in the extreme. Finally, all were out of
sight of the batteries.
At five in the morning, the burning wreck
of the Mississippi still flouted. Tho magazine
exploded sixteen miles below Port Hudson.
The Hartford and Albatross were out of
range at anchor, above the batteries. Loss
on each, three mcnkllledand two wounded.
No serious damage occurred to cither craft.
The casualties and injuries arc on the remain
der Of the fleet, at present unknown to us.
The Richmond probably suffered as much as
any.
At 10 o’clock the ensuing morning, the
Hartford and steamed up as far as
the month of the Red River, and there ascer
tained that four or five rebel rams had just
passed up, the smoke from, whose chhnnies
could yet be seen in the distance; also, that
fifty of the crew of the Mississippi had been
token prisoners. Still passing up, at Natchez,
the steamers destroyed the telegraph lice, by
Farrncut’s orders. This was on the ISth.
On Thursday, the 19th, we passed Grand
Gulf; and were fired upon the battery of fif
teen field pieces, but the boat was uninjured.
Three men were killed and eight wounded.
The loss on the rebel side Is not learned. On
the same day, Farragut distinctly saw, as ho
thought, the wreck of the Indlanola, shatter
ed as though she had been blown up near the
shore.
On the 20th our government steamers passed
Warremon, shelling the batteries vigorously,
but no enemy was seen, and ( no reply made
to the cannonade. The same dayfwc reported
to Rear-Admiral D. D. Porter, off Vicksburg.
On the 21st we received coal from above,
floated to us in barges, as before related. Af*
terwards, on the 22d, the Albatross made a
reconnoisaucc to Warrcnton, and destroyed an
unfinished cascmated battery which the rebels
had commenced, under a slight opposition
from riflemen aud a few field pieces. The en
suing day the Hartford paid the same place a
visit, and found aboutS,ooo riflemen entrench
ed, who were quickly scattered by a dose of
'shot and shell.
This ends the adventures of the two steam
ere, which'were at the foot of the canal when
your correspondent left.
Commodore Farragut U confident of his abil
ity to silence any battery on the river; cer
tainly himself and the crew# of all his steam
ers evidenced the possession of most undeni
able pluck. All the officers and men be
haved nobly; Pilot Carrol, of Hartford, is es
pecially mentioned, and many others will be
in the Commodore's official dispatches which
have gone forward to Washington. The
presence of Farragut and his gunboats has
infused new t Igor and spirit into the soldiers
at Xoung'fl Point.
FROM WASHINGTON.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.
TVashixqtok, MarchSl, 1863.
The subject of Kentucky re-enslavement of
escaped contrabands, by virtue of her local
laws, is said to have given rise to protracted
Cabinet consultations.
The Government has authorized Gen. UU
mann to raise a black brigade, and Gov. An
drew to raise a couple of negro
but beyond that, no authority has yet been
given to any one to enlist black troops. Scores
of petitions have come in from persons wish
ing to be officers of black, regiments; but the
M’or. Department positively refuses to give
further authority to anybody, for the present.
It is Intimated, however, that they mean soon
lo begin the work of enlisting negroes in the
service.
Both halls at the Capitol were crowded full
at the great Union meeting to-day, with en
thusiastic audiences. Many were unable to

ciates, and said, In whatever else ho might
fill, he should not fail to punish disloyalty,

Buell court of inquiry.
All officers yet on rebel hands arc to be at

The widow of Jackson, who killed Ells
worth, came Into our lines at Union Mills, to
day, and hogged permission to come over to

document addressed by Judah P. Benjamin,
the Confederate Secretary of State, to .lion. L.
O. C. Lawnr, the Confederate Commissioner
at St. Petersburg, has lately come into the

prudent and significant reserve which the
Confederate officers prescribe to themselves,
in refusing to enterinio any engagement with
loreign nations not to renew the African slave
trade.
"Washington, March 31.—The President has

j,r.xiNGTON. March 31,1863. J
Gen. Gilmore, with his forces, was reported
at Somerset yesterday, at four o’clock p. m.,
having driven the rebel force before him.- Aa
the nearest crossing of the Cumberland is at
Stigull’s Ferry, six milcafrom Somerset, the
rebels will not probably be able to- effect
their eaeape-without loss.
The 24th Kentucky, Col. Grigsby, arc or
dered into Eastern Kentucky, with general
instructions to mount themselves aUx (John
Morgan. Ho doubt they will be quickly, and
well mounted, with delicate attentions of the
quartermasters.
The report that they have been reinforced
by 2,000 infantry Is not probable, but if true
will not change, the result. Gen. Gilmore
possesses thc-wlll and power to crush them.
During theiqbrief occupation, the rebel* stole
cows, young mules, calves, &c., broke-open
stores and plllageditbem of every Hung they
, could cany away. Bolts of ribbon, patterns
of dresses,. collars, silks, clothes, dec.* were
found on the prisoners gent in this morning,
some 83 in number. The balance of the stolen
cattle have all been recovered.
"Woodford first overhauled the retreating
rebels at Hall’s Gap, six miles below Stanford,
and captured 200' cattle and 150 prisoners,. the
last one at Camp Dick Robinson, and ear on
tbeir way here. Pegram’s men burned the
bridgas over Dick’s River at* Brlantsvillo and
Lancaster, and.: appropriated every thing of
value on his line.
Stirring news from Somerset Is hourly ex
pected. Steel* of Cluke’s command; with
about 350 men, effected a crossing of the riv
er, and escaped via Richmond, but will be
lurky if he ie-not taken by our troops below.
He has pillaged all on his route. A family are
here to-day, on their way to Indiana* having
been deprived of everything. Wagon loads
of emigrants, dependent on charity, Trending
their way Northward, are passing hourly. A
portion o£duke's party were reported, last
■ evening, as scouring the route towards Mays
villc.
Walker* vexed at his formerfiiflnrc, and un-
willing that a few hundred horse thieves
should reign in eastern Kentucky, made an
other dash yesterday and occupied Mt. Stcr-
ling, and attempted a coup tieguerre. A skir
mish ensued, in which five rebels were killed,
ten wounded, and some captured. A gentle
man from Mt. Sterling, to-day, brings intelli
gence, not confirmed, that ho had captured
the whole party, including the pestilent
leader himself.
Clnke’s personal presence alone will con
firm such a rumor.
The aflhir of the 44th Ohio and 14th Ken-
tucky, five miles below Hazel Green, with
Marshall’s men, was more serious than re
ported. Some thirty Fedcrals are said to
have been killed, and twenty-five more arc
still unaccounted lor. Nearly one hundred
rebels were captured and paroled. The high
water prevented bringing them in.
Marshalls force is estimated at I,SOO. He
has not made bis appearance in public yet.
The supposedjrebcl scouts seen near Paris,
were our own pickets and scouts from Hazel
Green) Barboursvillc, Knoxville, and the
Gaps, report no rebel force but roving bands
of highwaymen. Stage conveniences have
been resumed to all the towns south of our
armies.
Cnfcno’ATl, March 31.—The Commercial" a
Murfreesboro dispatch says: Polk's corps,
consisting of Cheatham's, Witheris and Mc-
Gowan’s divisions have advanced to within
nineteen miles of Murfreesboro. Scouts af
tinn that the rebels must attack or fill back
on account of scanty subsistence.
27ew York, March 81.—The Murfreesboro
correspondent of the Philadelphia Press has
obtained the following intellegence from, a
gentleman who has just returned from the
vicinitv of Chattanooga. The rebels are
building immense fortifications at Chattanoo
ga, have between fifty and sixty
liege guns in position. At Bridgeport there
has been constructed some fine earthworks,
alro at Stevenson, Ala., Shelbyvillc, Tullaho
tna and Dechcrd.
Bragg lost at the battle of Stone River
15,500 men In killed, wounded and missing.
This is the official figure; 700 officers were
killed, wounded and missing; two Generals
killed, and three wounded.
Gens. Breckinridge and Cheathams escaped

Yokktown, MarchSO.—Yesterday morning,
about'one hundred rebel infantry etole past
our pickets In front' of Williamsburg; and
quietly occupied the place at daybreak. At
*dawn, their cavalry In front attacked our pick
ets, who fell back upon the town. Here the
’lnfantry fired upon them, lulling two . tmd
wounding five. They finally cut their way
through, and escaped to Fort Magruder, ex
cepting eight or nine, who were made pris
oners. Our force numbered about forty, and
the enemy three hundred. Before our rein
forcements came up, the enemy seized what
ever they could, and made good their escape.
Fortress Morrnos, March SO.—Refugees
from rebeldom and deserters from the rebel
army, are almost daily coming into our lines,
at Suffolk and Torktown.
They represent that movements strongly
indicate tbc early evacuation of Richmond,
though U is intended to be accomplished by a
slow and sure process. One entire division ‘
of the rebel army arrived at Richmond lost ,
Tuesday, as Is supposed to protect the rebels
from aiiv altackwbile the evacuation is taking
place. The rebels have already commenced
to remove their large guns and also their
machinery from the machine shops of Rich
mond to Chattanooga.
Washington. March 31 —An attack by'
rebel cavalry, 100 strong, was made yesterday
on our cavalry patrol on the telegraph road,
between Dumfries and Occoquan. Eight of
our men were captured-
The expedition from Hooker’s army, under
CoL Fairchild, which was sent out recently to
Northern Neck, returned, to Belle Plain yes

a quantity of pork, bacon, wheat and oats,
also a number of valuable horses and mules,
and broke up the ferries at Union Wharf, on
the Rappahannock. CoL Fairchild also burn
ed a schooner engaged in smuggling contra
band goods into Virginia.
All is quiet on the Rappahannock.- The
enemy is evidently still in his old camps,

ters there, and the condition of his late fellow

S. Treasury Notes, and at Chattanooga four
for one. 1
He also states that there is much hitter op
position to the rebel government, in the
vicinity ol both places. He, as well as the
other prisoners were very well treated, thus
contradicting other reports. He also says
the Confederates are fortifying at Chattanooga
and Bridgeport. '

march of one hundred and forty miles in mid

hours a destroyed the entire band, leaving 234
• dead upon the field.
Our loss was 14 killed and 49 wounded.
These Indians had murdered several miners
during the winter, and were a part of the

grants on the overland mail route for the
last fifteen years, and the principal actors and
lenders in the horrid crimes of the past sum
mer.
During Col. Connor’s march, no assistance
was rendered by the-Mormons, who seemed
indisposed, he says, to divulge any informa
tion regarding the Indians, and charged enor
mous prices for every article furnished his
