FRIDAY. APRIL 10, 1803.
THE NEWS.
The news from Charleston has simmer
ed down to a wise wagging ol the heads of
J-ebel pickets across tbe Rappahannock,
With a very provoking ‘‘"What would you
give to know f” air. Why don’t somebody
in Booker's army buy the story of some
ragged rebel with the tempting barter
of a pair of new boots. It is distressing
lo be led to believe that something has
happened somewhere, and we not know it
Who ought to know it. Seriously, there is
S probability that our fleet has fallen at
Work at Charleston, and rumor says they
have taken a fort. Which fort? Wo all
know Admiral Dupont's Jorte of old, and
Only hope his prestige will hold.
Richmond papers received via Fortress
JTonroe, confirm the previously announced
disaster in which the Union gunboat Diana
Was lost. She was a fourth rate steamer
attached to Admiral Farragut’a squadron.
Acting Jlastcr Ezra S. Goodwin; Acting
plaster's Hate, J. D. Troth The rebel dis
patch, which is official, comes from Ber-
Vick’s Bar.
Benvlcks* Bay, where the Dian u was
lost, is on the Gulf coast of Lousiana, and
r. point liberally used by rebel
Blockade runners, tbdr goods through the
jAtchafiilaya water system, reaching the
Red River and all parts of the Confedera
cy. The Diana was captured at Patterson-
Villc. Gen. Banks’ new land expedition is
destined for that region.
The grand land movement from New
Orleans for Port Hudson is said to have
Commenced. The rebels, in the same dis
patch arc said to be 80*000 strong. On
the other hand a rebel dispatch states that
Gen. Banks’ movement is against the
Bayou Teche district, striking at the rebel
communications with the Gulf through
the Atchafalaya.
The news from North Carolina shows
Ihe rebels more threateningly opposed to
poster’s smaller force, and are ominous of
disaster unless help reach trim
The grand muster of the army prepara*
torr to the enrollment under the conscrip
tion Idw. This will lest* the question ol
tvhere the draft is to fall, and it will be
Etriclly based on numbers of men and not
numbers of regiments. There will be a
Shaking of skeletons in some of the Adju
tant Generals* offices.
A Southern dispatch states that Deßow,
the pet statistician of Dixie, and now rebel
Egcnt abroad, has negotiated 175,000 bales
of cotton at 12c per lb., the security for
the rebel loan. This must be understood
l)y loyal readers on this side of the Allon
ge precisely as it is by well informed Eng
lish authorities. It is not a question of
confidence in the success of the
yebcl government that calls out
Ibis loan, but merely the
tempting speculation. A glittering mar
gin of profit on the price above named, is
offered on the chance of vessels running
the blockade with this hypothecated cot
ion. A very few cargoes sent out at twelve
cents would make splendid fortunes for
Veiy many, and on the principle of gift
Concerts, the risk is run for prizes against
Overwhelming chances of drawing blanks.
Our readers will recicvc the news of a
new canal, begun at "Vicksburg, with far
Jess confidence, from the previous failures
in the same line. Our dispatches from
Gen. Grant’s army indicate continued ac
livity on the part of our forces. But little
or no light is thrown on the mystery of the
general situation.
Our Indianapolis dispatch gives the oath
of the K. G. C. Lodges, just now being
hunted to earth in that State, and adds the
■welcome intelligence to the loyal people of
Ihe North, that men in Indiana who here
after utter or print disloyalty, are to he
Bent to Eosccrans, and shipped to their
friends in C. S. A. The rule is to he a
general one, and a Chicago invoice of
approved Copperheads Trill at no distant
day he made up for Dixie. The Govern
ment is determined to carry on this war by
keeping its enemies in the front, and the
firc-in-tlic-rcar Editors and civilians will
he called to show their hands for loyalty,
keep a dumb tongue for treason, or have
Iheir light baggage ready packed for Dixie.
This is certain.
THE GREAT JtEEtlSft
Many groat and successful meetings have
heai held in this city, but never was a
meeting of any sort convened here, that
•was greater, more successful, or more grat
ifying to the promoters of it than the
Union mass meeting at Bryan Hall last
night. It was, in its preliminaries, manip
ulated by the -Committee of the Council
•with consummate •ability; the whole pro
gramme was admirable. * And to add that
the programme was admirably
carried out, is only what
justice compels us to say. Judge
Thomas Drummond presided with equal
dignity and decision; and his speech, on
taking the char, was able and eloquent
The first speech, by Hon. W. A. How
ard of Michigan, was sound and argu
mentative. Senator Trumbull followed,
in his usual logical and forcible style, and
with more than his usual enthusiasm of
manner. But our home orators on this
occasion—all strong and fall of loyal zeal
—must stand aside for once. The great
Bpeoch of the evening was by Mason Jones,
esq., the IrLh orator.
Jlr. Jones had not prepared a speech for
Ihe occasion, and did not down to a late
Lour yesterday, know that he was expect
ed to speak. But he was called out by the
Chairman, and by the cheers of the im
mense crowd. He was received most
Warmly, and as he proceeded he most
tobly justified the partiality of the people
Ibr him. We do not remember an address
in this city, by any distinguished orator
or statesman, on any occasion, that was
more fraught with good sense, and more
Tcplcte with eloquence. It was as close and
logical as Webster’s, and os burning as
Clay’s best off-hand speeches. He wa?
jnanly in his avowals of sympathy with the
Union cause, lucid in his explanations of
Ihe policy of European governments, ve
hemently denunciatory of the Copperheads,
and noble in his expression of friendly hopes
for our holy pause. We much regret our
inability to report his speech in cxlcnso ;
hut that would be literally impossible.
But the thousands who heard him last
night will not soon forget Mason Jones, the
Irish orator. rousing cheers were
£ lvcn to him on his resuming his seat.
The next speaker was Gen. John F.
Farnsworth, who delivered an sppropri
© an patriotic address—parts of which
Wwe boisterously applauded.
Hon. John "Wentworth was the nert
speaker. His remark, were characteristic,
patriotic and storing, mid were well p*
ceircd. Altogether, the meeting -was a
complete success; and Its effects will be
felt widely and permanently.
tST Col. Lafayette Bingham, of New Tort. t.
Peeking antbority to raise 2 ',OOO men In the
States, to operate in Arkansas and Florida. r
We find {he above going the round* of
Ihe papers. It is time that it was stopped.
The insatiate Bingham once lived in Chi
cago, and is known here as a fourth-class
attorney. Twenty, quiet, 'sober' men past
fnddneaa of youth, might safely be
“Bsted to Bingham if there was nothing
VOLUME XY,
for them to do, but 20,000 of them would
visit upon Bingbam, tbe ate of Tarpeia.
He •would be smothered. That he a
“seeking authority” is very likely, for ho
has "been on some search or other since the
present war began. If the draft could only
be strong enough to draw all bis class of
seekersaway from the Capital, it would rid
the wheels of government of a horde of
nuisances that arc really a public evil. IVe
make no charge to Colonel Bingham for
this advertisement.
THE CONDUCT OF THE WAR.
The second part of the report of the
Committee on the Conduct of the War is
issued, and an abstract of its main points is
given in our Washington dispatches. It
is a continuation of the dispassionate and
unpartizan-like investigation of the man
agement of this war, to the end of locating
the responsibility of its blunders, disasters
and short comings. If not precisely the
amended verdict of History it will aid that
verdict, for the historian of the war,
whether he writes in this present
period, or some coming decade when
the smoke of conflict shall have been blown
away, will dwell on no evidence more care
fully than that made up of the testimony
of living actors, their dispatches, reports
and letters. To such a scrutiny and
so conducted, the disaster of the
first Bull Run has been submit
ted. It disposes of one class
of clamorous fellows at a breath. Those
who have been charging it upon the cry
of “ On to Richmond,” will here find that
had the earnest call for energetic move
ments in the first months of the war been
heeded, Bull Run would indeed have been
saved by our undisputed occupancy of
Manassas sis weeks in advance of the
time when the rebels first began to
strengthen themselves there.
The gloomy curtain that has shrouded
the massacre at Ball’s Bluff, is for the first
time drawn aside, and the blame located by
the Committee with the Commander in
Chief of the Army of the Potomac. Light
is thrown also upon Gen. Stone’s case, and
that officer relieved of much that has rest
ed onerously upon him. Full justice should
now be done Gen. Stone, since the period
is passed when his sacrifice is necessary to
save McClellan. The whole review of
the affair at Ball’s Bluff will be read with
eagerness by tbe public. No ,’part of the
Committee’s work will be more welcome
to a large share of the people, than that
which investigates Fremont’s Missouri cam
paign. In the abstract by telegraph, the
Committee complain of meagreness of de
tails and scant facilities for making up their
report, growing out of the distance of the
scene, and the difficult}* of procuring wit
nesses, but they do much lo relieve Gen.
Fremont’s reputation from charges under
which it has suffered. There are veiy many
who would be glad to find an endorsement
throughout ior Gen. Fremont. There
should be none who are afraid to see strict
and ample justice done him.
Ivicut. Col. Bloodgood.
In the publication of a letter in our last
issue, touching the Brentwood afiair, below
Nashville, a charge of cowardice was made in
the heading against Lieut. Col. Bloodgood
the Federal Commander, and doubtless,
to the surprise ol all who read the account
that followed, In which no such evidence ap
peared. In all theaccounts of the Brentwood
matter yet published, no such charge has been
made against Cpl. Bloodgood, and wo have
certainly neither the means or the disposition
to inaugurate it.
LOC.VL ELECTIONS,
ILLINOIS.
Peoria— Tho township election in Peoria
resulted in the success of the Copperhead
ticket, bnt by a greatly reduced majority.
XhcTote for Supervisor was Dodge, Republi
can, C 23; Darst, Cop., 740. The usual Cop
perhead majority la about SOO.
Woodstock—' The result of the Corporation
election in Woodstock, on Monday last, was
the complete triumph of the Union ticket.
The township election on the lollowing day
resulted the same as the Corporation contest.
Springfield— The Copperheads of Spring
field carried their township election by about
one-half their usual majority.
Campbell—The Unionists elected their en
tire ticket.
North East— ln this township, last fall,
Allen, (Dem.) had 85 votes and Ingersoll,
(Union) TO, Now John J. Graham, (Union)
Supervisor has 107, to 63 for John Do Groat,
Copperhead. All right. ‘‘Keep the ball a
rolling.”
FLAGG—OGLE COUNTY.
By private advices from Lane, Ogle Co., we
learn that the Union Ticket In Flagg town
ship, was elected by an average majority of
150 out of 202 votes. The Copperheads made
a desperate effort to elect their ticket. • A
Union man consented to ran on their ticket
for Collector, bnt the loyal voters were not
to be caught by any such bait as that, and the
would-be Collector shared the same fate as
that of his brother Copperheads. A corres
pondent writes, “The Copperheads are com
pletely amazed. They don’t know what struck
them.”
The following is the ticket elected, with the
majorities of each candidate:—'Willard P.
Flagg, Supervisor, 152 majority; Alfred 8.
Headley, Town Clerk, 143 maj.; J. E. Car
pester. Assessor, 141 maj.; Wm. Halsey, Col

ATLANTA.
Atlanta.LtoksCo.. Ills., April?.
Editors Chicago Thibcnu :
Yesterday we had an election of town offi
cers, which resulted in a complete victory to’
the Union men and a defeat to the Copper
heads. the latter having only thirty-one votes
out of 176, making one hundred and forty-five
Union majority. The Copperheads have been
rather bold since the Conscription Bill passed,
threatening what they would do if it was pass
ed. But I think they will find from the major
ity that tho Union ball still rolls on, crushing
all traitors. *
A Union Ladt.
McLean.—ln this township the vote for
Supervisor was tied, (04 to 04,) but the rest
of the Union ticket was elected by a majority
averaging about 60. The Copperheads de
ceived many voters by heading their ballot
“Union Ticket.” ’
Tuscola.— The charter election in Tuscola,
Douglas County, resulted in the almost unan
imous elcc'tlon of the Union ticket. A cor
respondent writes as follows:
“The Democrats, or rather those who call
thcmsclvesDemocrate,thought all was right for
them,and that they could elect a ticket which
they patched up a week or so ago; but yes
terday morning, about -11 o’clock, they got a
flea hi tbelr car, and were as mad as a wet
hen. With the exception of four or five
they remained away from tho polls* They
onlynumbcrahouttbirlyfiveor forty out of
115 voters; and not having any side issues to
catch votes, they found no comfort against
such odds, and skulked rather than make a
chow. Seventy-two votes were polled and
seventy of them were for tho Union ticket,
composed of our most thorough business
men.”
April 9.—For the first time
in the history of llaclne. a clean sweep has
been mode. Against an Unconditional Union
ticket, the Copperheads dared to contend.
Hie result, has-been their total overthrow.
Not even an Alderman, or School Commls
sioner, of the traitorous crew, was saved from
the storm of public indignation. List year
we had a Copperhead Mayor, City Treasurer
Clerk, half the Aldermen, and part of the
School Board. The revolution is complete
Union men, without any ifs or 6u?j, are
elected to every place of trust and responsi
bility in tbc gift of the people of our city.
JST The Peoria Transcript contains accounts
of four sad casualties. Two men, names not
ascertained, were drowned in the Illinois
River near that city, on Friday, by the upset
ting of a canoe. A. soldier, named John M.
Joch, ol the 14th Illinois cavalry, was run
over by the cars and killed, on the Logansport,
Peoria and Burlington Railroad, near Cbcnoa,

FROM VICKSBURG.
A NEW CANAL BEGUN.
IMPOETANT MOVEMENTS ON
THE TAPIS.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune*]
Young’* Point, La., April 3. J
via Cairo, April 9, iaC3. f
Several transports filled with troops, and
Genera! Filet's Marine Brigade, left this point
this morning and steamed up stream, accom
panied by an iron-clad. There is no prospect
of active operations before Vicksburg for
some time.
A new canal is being cut three miles above
this point. Three dredges and an African
brigade are hard at work upon it, night and
day. A battery of thirty-pound Parrotts
been planted on tbe peninsula opposite Vicks
burg, but Us effect has not’ yet been fully
tested. The weather is fine and the health of
the troops.is improving.
[Special Dbpatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Cairo, April 9,1863.
Several arrivals from Memphis and below,
but news outside of your dispatches from
yonr regular correspondents is veiy unrelia
ble in character. The new canal being cut
absorbs some attention. It enters the Miss
issippi below Warrenton, and is eight miles
long; the exit is by Diamond Bend. It starts
just below Duckport.
Farragut still holds the country between
Vicksburg and Port Hudson. The Queen of
the West is up P.ed River. Porter and Grant
arc both on a rcconnoissance up the Yazoo,
and have a considerable force with them.
Boss’ and Quiraby’s divisions are still in the
Pass. A gunboat wont the same way on Sat
urday last, and carried ammunition and sup
plies. Geu. Smith has been relieved by Gen.
Tuttle. Smith is here.
Colonel BUstll came up yesterday with his
regiment. Adjt. Gen. Thomas has gone be
low. He went down on Sunday. Col.J. C.
Sullivan, of Indiana, is appointed Inspector
General of the Department of the Tennessee.
A fight was expected on the 6th at Cane
Creek, roar Memphis, twelve miles distant.
Our forces were drawn up in order of battle.
Cbalmer’s army is greatly over-estimated. It
is only about 1,000 men.
_ Cairo, April 9.—Our latest news from
Young’s Point is to Saturday evening. Gen
Steele’s division landed at Greenville, Miss,
on Friday. A Confederate force of several
- thousand is reported near that place.
Capt. J. B. Sample, A. A. G. on Gen. Tut
tle b staff, writes from Young’s Point on the
3ft, as follows; “We are much surprised to
find the troops In such good bealthand spirits.
Afnr reading the accounts in the papers of
suffering and sickness, we were prepared for
almost anything; but it is all a mistake. I
never saw troops in better condition.”
Gen. Tuttle is assigned to the command of
the 3d division, 15iU army corps, and goes up
to a point four miles above Young’s Point.
His headquarters Is on the steamer Florence
Miller.
Gen. Oglesby has been assigned to a com
mand in Gen. Hnrlbut’s corps, and will go to
Jackson or Corinth.
Col. Bissell’s engineer corps Lave come up
to Memphis to make ’repairs on Ibe Memphis
and Charleston railroad.
Over $92,000 was paid to tboSSth lowa, hero
(Cairo), yesterday. It is ordered to Youngs
Point, where it will go in u'few days.
I understand Captain Phelps will be assign
ed to the command of this naval post, in the
place of Capt. Pennock, who takes comm md
of the fleet in the Cumberland and Tennes
see rivers.
Cairo, April 9.—The Jackson Appeal , of the
31st, admits the loss of the ram Vicksburg,
but suysher machinery had-been taken out
and that she was not worth much.
General Steele had landed his division at
Greenville, Miss. His object, no doubt, is to
co-operate with the fleet in reducing Fort
Pemberton. If anything of importance is
transpiring at any point below Memphis, we
fail to hear of it. Arrivals from below are
scattering and irregular, and papers when re
ceived contain nothing.

mm WASHINGTON.
Surmises and Rumors of a Vic-
Tory at Charleston.
VARIOUS NEWS FROM THE
ARMY AND CAPITAL.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Washington, April 9,1553.
The rebels on the Rappahannock were nev
er so subdued and quiet as to-day. Talking
in knots, it was ascertained from them that a
fort has been taken by our forces. What fort
is not known. Late Richmond papers contain
no dispatches from Charleston.
There is little doubt but that a note bos
gone to England from our Government, to
tho effect that if other vessels like tho Ala
bama are allowed to sail, it will be considered
an unfriendly act. Some think that war is
inevitable. The better opinion is, that Eng
land will back down.
The Adjt. Gcn.*s order, of the 2d Inst,
guarantees to Boldiers re-cnllsting after the
expiration of their term of service, id addi
tion to SSO bounty, a furlough for thirty days,
Immediately after enlistment.
Attorney General Bates and Senator Ram
ea J»just returned from Hooker’s army, unite
In reporting it excellently cared for in all re
acts, and the men eager for a fight, and
devoted to their commander. The soldiers
■were never so well fed or clothed. Bates
■was not over cheerlnl when he went, hut
returns in the best of spirits.
The head chief of the loyal Creeks, Opoth
elyo, recently died at the Sac and Fox Agency.
The other refugees are still there.
The pickets of the enemy across the Rappa
hannock say that our forces have gained an
advantage at Charleston, but decline to give
particulars. The rebels are evident!} gloomy.
A million aud .a quarter of dollars has al
ready passed for the Army of thp Potomac,
and Paymasters are to start to-morrow—three
millions to be paid daily until all are paid.
Musters .of the whole army of the United
States will be had to-morrow, preparatory to
putting in operation the enrollment law.
The enemy is actively engaged on the Rap
pahannock, and his camps and fortifications
arc increasing in numbers-, but many officers
think Ibis the old evacuation plan. Our bal
loon and signal .corps make the opposite re
port.
The Commissioner of Pensions has decided
that it ia not feasible nor wise to pay pensions
in disloyal States, either by re-establishing
agencies there or by correspondence with
bureaus, there being great danger that they
will go to the disloyal. This decision is made
on application from New Orleans.
FROM EVANSVILLE.
A Terrific Descent on the Con-
trabandists.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Evansville, lad., April 9,1863.
United States Marshal Rose, and District
Attorney Uanna arrived here on Monday
night, causing considerable sensation amoug
the contraband dealers in this place. Early on
■Wednesday morning, Marshal Rose
proceeded to execute his orders, arrest:
ing the persons of Leopold Lewcnthal,
ofL. Lewehthal & Co., wholesale ready-made
clothing goods; D. C. Keller, of Keller &
White, wholesale druggists; D. Brcston, of
Krosc & Preston, dry goods; George Miller,
Lute B. Smith and James Rogers. These
parties were released on giving $2,00 C bail for
appearance before the United States District
Court on the sth of May. The stock of
Leweuthal «fc Co. was seized, and a strong
guard placed over the same. It is valued at
SIO,COO, which will certainly be confiscated.
The evidence against the house was too clear
to admit of any doubt.
Col. Foster, commanding the forces in
Kentucky, between Green and Cumberland
Rivers, has made another successful scout.
On Monday night he succeeded in surprising
a band of contraband dealers at Amontown,
Kentucky, who have been doing an extensive
business for’ some time past. He arrested
four persons, including a livery stable keeper,
who has been busy in moving contraband
goods into the Southern lines, whose whole
stock of horses, wagons, aud liarness has
been seized.
While returning, Col. Foster arrested still
another baud of smugglers at Cojdon, Hen
derson County Ind.
A large amount of Confederate money was
found on them. Papers found on them impli
cate several parties—several prominent merch
ants of this and other cities. The large con
traband trade through Southern Indiana, into
rcbeldom, is pretty effectually broken up. A
squad of Col. Foster's men had a skirmish
tliis morning, at Uniontowu. As usual, the
rebels fled.
FROM ST. LOUIS.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune ]
St. Louis, April 9,1883.
Telegraphic communication between Fay
etteville, Ark., and Springfield has been in
terrupted for four days. As last as it is re
paired in one place the guerillas cat it in
another, nud this, too, in spile of cavalry
riding daily along the line. It is reported a
raid is planned by Marmaduke to capture the
garrison at Fayetteville, but the place is
strongly defended and cannot bo easily taken.
The guerillas have lately attacked nearly every
foraging party sent out from Fayetteville
eastward.
Several regiments are about leaving hero
for the South.
Returned deserters arc scut off dally by the
railroad toioin their regiments.
An order has been received to trausfer all
the rebel prisoners in this. Department to
Baltimore for exchange, excepting those held
for special reasons. About fifty guerillas,
convicted of violating their paroles, have
been sent to Alton Penitentiary to serve out
sentences to hard labor daring the war.
Fourteen regiments of Militia have been
ordered to be raised by the Governor, for
State defence. If volunteers do not offer, a
draft from the State Militia will be ordered.

Murfreesboro, Tcnn., April S.—The
Hatchet Brigade, commanded by Col. Wilder,
returned Hus afternoon from an expedition
rm Lebanon to Carthage. Twentv-nine rebels
were captured before reading * Snow Hill.
Five thousand bushels wheat and much corn
were destroyed. A big barn, with a great
quantity of Dacon, was burned. Col. Wilder
found that, after Gen. Stanley returned
to Murfreesboro, Wharton's rebel regiment
re-occupied Snow Hill. Wilder moved up
behind him, and captured fifty-eight, the
remainder dispersing. He 'returned to camp
with SCO extra horses, and 160 able bodied ne
groes. endured from rebels. Wilder also
swapped off all his own poor horses for good
ones, transferring the stock to Union men
and taking good animals-from rebels. Several
rebels discovered in Federal uniforms were
summarily shot. Ono was caught near onr
lines. Wilder thought it Imprudent to fire,
and accordingly he pnt a rope around the col
lar of the uniform and left it hanging in the
woods, that the owner might find it.
During the past week our expeditions have
captured 700 horses and mules, 200 prisoners,
and over 200 able-bodied contrabands, and do
6tSSsrc . raucll rel,el forage and subsistence.
The Atlanta TnteWgetictr of the 4th says that
the rebel financial agent, De Bow, has negoti
ated in Mississippi and Louisiana for about
1.5,000 bales cotton at twelve cents, being for
the security of Confederate bonds.
The rebel force in front of Franklin Is In
creasing to an extent that indicates an inten
tion to attack Granger.
Small-poxis reported to have compelled the
rebel force to move from Tullahoma towards
Shelbyville.
• Inconsequence of Stanley’s affair at Snow
Hill, the rebels sent a strong force to Mc-
Minnville. Theyare removing rails and cross
tics from the railroad between McMinnville

CHICAGO, FRIDAY APRIL 10, 1863.
FROM CHARLESTON.
Cur Fleet Within the
Bar. .
the ball ready to
OPEN AT LAST AD
YIPES.
Headquarters Army of tec Potomac,
April 0—30:50 p. in.—The Richmond Whig,
in reference to the situation of Charleston,
Enyg, all thoughts are now centered upon
Charleston. Official intelligence was made
public early yesterday morning that the ene
my’s iron-clnd fleet had attempted to cross
the bar and failed. Bat, later in
the day, it was announced that the gun
boats and transports had succeeded In
crossing, and were at anchor. Our iron clads
lay between the forts, quietly awaiting the
attack. Further intelligence is looked for
with eager anxiety. ‘The Yankees have made
no secret of their vast preparations for an
attack upon Charleston, and we may well an
ticipate a desperate conflict.
The rebels at Savannah threaten to bring
down their rams, and attack ..ad retake Port
Royal, sinking the Wabash and Vermont, and
capturing all the troops left here by Gen.
Hunter. Singular as it may seem, the store
keepers at Hilton Head, in consequence of
this threat, arc selling their dry goods and
other stores lower than the same articles can
be bought in New York., It is said that an
order has been sent by Gen. Hunter to with
draw our troops from Brunswick and Fernan
dina.
A tremendous explosion took place in the
harbor ol Charleston, a few days since, caus
ing a jarring sensation to the whole blockad
ing squadron, six miles off It is supposed to
Lave been a premature explosion of a subma
rine torpedo.
Port Rotal, March 23.—The Keokuk ar
rived yesterday in good condition. Four
M onit ors are in North Edisto Inlet, with three
mortar schooners, distant about sixteen miles
by land, from Charleston. The troops, landed
at Stono, are said to have accompanied a gun
boat expedition. Firing has been heard there,
but there is nothing definite from that quar
ter. When the balance of the Monitors will
move to the North Edisto is hot known.
The rebel pickets are visible all along the
shores at North Edisto, and in the night sig
nals, by colored light*, are telegraphed along
the coast from thence to Chariest ou.
New York, April 9.—The purser of the
steamer Falikee, slates that the attack on
Charleston was to have commenced on Tucs
day.
Cairo, April 9.—A special to the Mobile
Tribune dated Charleston, March 28th savs
an official report states that the cnemv ’made
a landing last night on Cole’s Island with
three transports and 1,300 nien. It is sun
posed the object of the enemy was a recon
non-anee to determine the best place for his
operations by land and sea against Charles
ton.
Opinions vary relative to an attack ou
Charleston. We arc ready, and onr troops in
excellent condition.
New York, April 9.—The ITerahrs Wash
ington special at 10 p. m. last night, save*
The excitement, here in regard to the re
ported attack on Charleston is Intense. The
Navy and War Departments are still without
official advices, but no doubt is entertained
that the attack has been mode, and the result
unfavorable to the rebels. The continued
reticeuce of the rebel newspapers is regarded
as almost certain evidence that they are In
possession of news which confirms the fact
that Charleston Las fallen before the combined
attack of Hunter and Dupont. Heretofore it
Las bCcn the practice of the rebels, whenever
they huvo met with success; to send a ling of
truce across the Rappahannock with copies of
their papers, announcing the news. Besides
this, their pickets arc very gloomy, ami de
cline to converse at all upon the snbject of
the attack upon Charleston, or to allow* any
copies of their papers to come across the river
The Navy Department is in hourly expecta
tion of receiving information in regard to the
attack, which they knew was to have been
commenced last Thursday. A prominent of
ficial m the Navy Department to-day made
the remark: “By this time, the officers on
board our iron clads were either in Charleston
or in Heaven.”
New York, April 9.-—A person who passed
Charleston harbor, on Sunday noon, states
that nearly all the iron clads were off that
place. Tlie Ironsides was prepared for action
nothing being visible but iron. The rest of
the fleet was ready for the assault On Satur
day, a few shells were fired at Fort Sumter, to
try the range, but no action commenced.

The Rebels Threaten General
Foster.
Xew Tore, AprilO.—Passengers from Beau
fort, N. C., state that on the sth, the rebel
pickets on the Trent road extended to a point
nine miles from Newbern. Afialrs at Little
Washington looked threatening. On Sunday
evening the rebel Gen. Hill was opposing Gen.
Foster’s little band, and on Monday evening
a minor, at Newbern said Gen. Foster had
surrendered. This was not credited, as it
was believed that reinforcements from Suf
lolk had reached Little Washington.
Foster’s division was strongly entrenched
by rifle pits and ditches.
Cannonading was heard at Newbern all day
Sunday, and also on Monday. The steamgnn
boats Poctam and State oi Georgia, were
coaling at Morehead City, to run tho block
ade of Pamlico River, where there was but one
gunboat.
New York, April 9.—From various cor
respondents the following additional facts are
gleaned relative to Gen. Foster’s position at
Washington, North Carolina:
On the 80th ult., about ten thousand rebels,
under Hill and Pettigrew, were on tho north
tide of the town, and seven regiments on the
south bank of the Pamlico River.
Two companies of tho 44th Massachusetts,
while on a reconnoissance,marched right into
an ambaseade, suffering considerably from a
withering fire of musketry at short tango.
Captain Lyons, with a company of North
Carolina troops, was also badly cut up. Three
or four were Killed, and six or eight wounded.
Among the latter was Captain Lyons.
The gunboat Com. Holt opened on the reh
clSjScaltcring them.
That night the rebels took np all the buoys
in the river, and planted batteries in such po
eitions along the render it almost im
possible for vessels to pass, and established
themselves on Red Hill, some two miles from
the town, completely commanding our works.
On the next day the Com. Holt got aground,
and was struck thirty times by the rebel bat
teries, but finally got off
Two transports, with troops, unsuccessfully
attempted to reach Gen. Foster. A small lit
ter succeeded in reaching Footer with supplies
and ammunition.
Hill notified Foster to remove all tho wo
men and children, as he intended to shell the
town, but np to the 2d it had not been done,
as onr gunboats had kept their battery folly
engaged. . . ■ *
On the 4th, more gunboats arrived, and
others, with nine and eleven-inch gnus, were
expected on the sth. 5 *
Tho fort 13 heaTfly aodded, and Foster lias
over 2,000 troops.
A Newborn letter, dated theSd.lO p. m.,
6 ffunboats had arrived at the mouth
of the river. It was thought they would be
able to demolish the rebel batteries.
Gens. Palmer and Prince have taken such
steps as lead to the removal of all fears as ko
the safety of Foster.
The rebels are reported as having 5.000 men
on the road between Newborn and Washing
ton, N. C.

IMPORTANT FROM FLORIDA.
The City of Jacksonville Evacuated
and Destroyed.
[From theNcrc South.]
The news from the St. John’s River by tho
latest arrival is important. On the 26th nit,
Col. Montgomery, of the 2d South Carolina
volunteers, with two companies of his regi
ment, embarked on the transport' Gen. Meigs,
Cnpt. W’atkine, and pushed up the river as far
as Orange Grove, where they anchored for the
night.. On the following day they proceeded
to Falatka, where the Meigs ran np to the
wharf and landed her troops, who immedi
ately took possession of the town. While
lying at the wharf a volley of musketry was
firedfrom the village, and Capt. Watkins and
Judge Latta, who were conversing together
near the pilot-house, narrowly escaped, the
bullets whizzingclosc to them, and lodging
in the woodwork all about them. Lieut, CoL
Liberty Billings was sbot through both hands,
and one or two of the negroes were also
wounded.Meantime, Col. Montgomery or
dered the town to be shelled, while he went
beyond it and captured a Lieutenant and four
teen men of a,rebel company stationed there.
The next day the Adams came up with orders
for the forces to return, and nothing further
was accomplished at Palatka.
At Jacksonville the rebels succeeded in
creating some commotion byplacingasection
of artillery upon a platform car, and running
it to the edge of tho city; whence they threw
a number of shells, without effecting any se
rious results, however. One shell entered the
dwelling of a Union man, passing through
theroom where himself and wife .were sleep-'
ing, and penetrated* the rocking-chair on
which their clothes were plied. Ono soldier
of the Bth Maine regiment, we* learn was
killed, and another was wounded. In retalia
tion for the conduct of the rebels, CoL Rust
when the order tc evacuate was receivcdbum
od the town and brought away with him tho
families of the Union- people. Our forces’
left Jacksonville on the Olat.
The Committee on the
Conduct of the War.
PART SECOND OF THEIR
REPORT.
BULL BUN, BALL'S BLUFF,
FEEMONT.
April 9.—Part second of the re
port of the Committee on the Conduct of the
\\ar Is issued. It embraces the battles of
Bull Run and Ball s Bluff. %
In relation to the former, the Committee
state the great error of that campaign was the
failure to occupy Ceatreville and Manassas
when Alexandria was occupied, in May. The
forces which opposed us were mostly collect
ed and brought to Manassasin June and July
The three months men could have made Ha
rasses easily defensible against any force the
enemy could have brought against It, and it
is not at all probable that“the rebel force
would have been advanced from the line of
the Rippahannock had Manassas been occu
pied by our troops.
The next cause of disaster was the delav in
proceeding against the enemy until the time
ot the three months! men expired. When
the movement was finally determined upon
much was needed to render the troops effl
, n *- me bad been devoted to
locating them even a-> regiments. Hardlv
ray mstrncUon liad been jflven in reference
to brigade movements, and none at all as to
d‘7. , fn" : r-, Tlie ? r j'. iei - D: S , - ,anso ofoar defeat
the failure of Gen. Patterson to hold the
forces of Johnson in the Shenandoah Valiev
In relation to the battle of Ball’s Bluff, the
Committee, after giving an account of the en
gagement, Jtc., says, allthe testimouvgoes to
prove that means of transportation were very
inadequate. Gen. Stone, while inclined to
deem it Eullictent, left much to the judgment
for I W much b “ “W
lor bmj, that he received no intimation
uiat a movement across the river
Won V!v b l .expected from him, or
would be justified till the day before It was
actually made, smd the Committee adds* the
reason he had for supposing otherforces were
within a short distance to render him assist
ance, are set forth in a previous portion of this
report. This relates to the movements of
Gen. McCall to Dramsvillc for the purpose of
reconnoitering the country. ■ *
In reference to reinforcing Col. Baker, the
testimony was very conflicting. Gen. Stone
iflcs that he received no information from
Col. Baker that he needed reinforcements,
pat he received little if any information
from Col. Baker in reference to affairs at Ball’s
Bmn, and even if reinforments had been
needed they could not have been sent up on
the Virginia side, in consequence of the ene
my s earthworks and batteries between Ed
ward’s Ferry and Ball’s Blutf.
Some other witnesses testify to the same
effect. Others say there was no obstacle to
o«r troops passing up on the Virginia side.
The Committee refrains from expressing any
positive opinion on this point. In referring
to the arrest of General Stone, the Com
mittco say they informed Secretaries Cam
eron and Stanton that some explanation
by General Stone was required. He ap
pealed before the Committee, and made
explanations in general terms concerning
the testimony against him, in regard to undue
intercourse with the enemy, &c. The Com
puttee reported to the Secretary of War that
the testimony was conflicting, without any
recommendation as to what should be don*'
It afterwards appeared from the testimony of
Gen. McCall, that Gen. Stone was arreted
on a written order of the Secretary of War
for the reason that he had been informed by
members of the Committee on the Conduct
of the War, that they had taken testimony
going to showing that he had been •'■ullty of
conduct not consistent with loyalty.
Gen. Stone, since bis release, has been per
mitted to examine all the testimony, and de
manded that he be furnished with a copy of
the charges against him. Why this request
is not granted, the Committee is uninformed.
Part third embraces the Department of the
TV ear. The Committee says it has been una
ble to collect the necessary testimony in this
department, (particularly while under com
mand of Gen. Fremont,) on account of the
great distance of witnesses. In relation to
the administration of Fremont, the Commit
tee says, much should be pardoned in one
compelled to act so promptly, and
with so little at his command. Some
of the arms cmraged by Fremont for his de
partment were diverted to the army of the
Potomac, by the Government, and his depart
meut long felt the want ol an adequate sup
ply-. As to the fortifications around St.
Louis, Fremont bat carried out what Gen.
Lyon deemed necessary. As to the manner
in which it was done, the Committee forbears
expressing an opinion. In regard to rein
forcing, promptly, points threatened by the
enemy, the Committee believe Fremont
acted with energy aud promptness.
Troops were collected by him as soon as
could be done, and promptly scat where their
service was demanded. Some were diverted
to other purposes. The Government called
upon him for troops to be sent east at a time
when he was most earnestly engaged la pro
curing forces for the assistance ol .Mulligan.
Those that were left he sent promptly, and only
l-iilcd to renderassistancc needed,from, causes
over which Fremont hud no control. Fre
mont perceived the advantage to result from
gunboats for Western rivers, and the brilliant
victories West bear enduring testimony to the
correctnesh of his judgment.
The Committee thinks that Fremont’s
emancipation proclamation, at that early day,
was the most efficient means of crushing the
rebellion, in proof of which it is only neces
sary to state that his eucceesor, when trans
ferred to another department, issued a procla
mation embodying the same principle, and
the President, as Commander-in-Ctuef, has ap
plied the same principle to the rebellious
States on the whole.
The administration of Fremont was omi
ncntly characterized by earnestness, ability
and loyalty.
