the: news.
Our news from Rosecrans’ department,
Loth by our own and rebel channels, indi
cates that a movement is actually in pro
gress which can hut bring on a general
engagement at an early day. The rebels
arc taking the initiative, but Rosecrans
jnay not wait for Ibem.
All appalling disaster has befallen one of
the Portland line of English steamers, the
Anglo Saxon, wrecked on Monday, the
2Tth, near Cape Race,Kcwfdundland, with
the loss of nearly three hundred lives.
The casualty was due to her striking on a
reef in a heavy fog, while a heavy sea was
running. The Anglo Saxon was one of
the Grand Trunk Railway Company’s line
of steamers, which run to Portland du
ring the winter months. Her regular day
for leaving Liverpool was Thursday, the
IClh Inst.
The Cape Girardeau aflalr is over, and
the rebels, soundly thrashed by Gen. Mc
2scil, arc following their leader Manna
duke in hot haste to escape. They havo
“ come, seen and concurred” in the opinion
that s] eed was all that would save them.
It is one of the best little affairs that has
befallen the Union cause in Missouri for a
] ong lime. It has tested the temper of our
troops, and found it of the best proof It
has again shown 3lissouri the evidence
that some of her citizens arc prone to for
get, that her best friends arc not .the hun
gry hordes that follow rebel leaders to the
pillage and devastation of the districts
they visit.
A Springfield dispatch announces one
ol the most important sales of property
that ever took place in this State, being
the laige and valuable estate of ex-Gov
ernor Mattcson, sold by order of the Master
on Chancery to reimburse the State the
entire amount of bonds purloined by Gov.
Matte-son. It is a striking and appropriate
sequel to an extraordinary affair, one of the
most characteristic features of which was
the desperate resistance made by Gov.
Matleson’s Copperhead confreres to the
measures taken by Republicans to bring
about this disgorgement The State is now
reimbursed, and dishonesty signally pun
The rebels, according to our dispatches,
have pressed northward, through Western
Virginia, and occupied Morgantown in
Unit State, cutting the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad in their route. As it is now an
nounced that the road is again secure and
In running order, it is probable that
the force has retired as rapidly as
it cau.e, or, perhaps, like Roderick
Dhu’s men, has sunk into the surrounding
scenery. Evidently there was a bad scare
at Wheeling, and a lesser one at Pittsburg,
from which latter city Morgantown is dis
tant some fifty miles up the Monongahela
Valley. The rebels could have had no
force adequate to have attempted a single
day’s march into Pennsylvania with any
prospect of getting back again. It may,
however,- be the mask to more important
One thing we like exceedingly’ well in all
these recent rebel raids, northward into
Kentucky, Missouri, and portions of Ten
nessee long held by our forces. Not now,
as formerly, do the ragamuffin hordes
herald themselves by bigb sounding proc
lamations, zealous professions of love and
promises of kindly protection to their
faithful brethren. The character of saviour
and preserver at first worn with ill grace
by those sad knaves John Morgan,
Forest, Price, and others, is played
out, and withdrawn. They rush
in now’ with a hungry’ grab at all
and everything that falls in their way. No
questions are asked. They make a clean
sweep. Does a secesh farmer or a rebel
grass widow plead exemption from visita
tion for principle’s sake, it does not save
horse, mule, nor nigger. Of course, the
friends of the dear South, must befriend
her now, and the poultry yard and com
bin is swept clean. Read what the dis
patches say of the late rebel movement in
Southeast Missouri, and note the new pro
*Wc like it, for it is significant of the des
peration of the rebel cause. Their season
of ardent courtship of the coy Border
Slates is past, and they come back now
much in the character of the discarded
lover, who should turn burglar and
prowl in to steal his mistress* jewelry,
silver spoons and cake basket. Not at all
would this last scamp hope thus to further
the matrimonial scheme once sought. And
there is no prospect that these devastated
districts will gain in love for the rebellion.
The regiments now in the field from Ken
tucky were struck out from the white heat
of rage and grief In some of the sec
tions thus laid waste by rebel marauders.
The same influences will stiffen and con
solidate the Missouri militia forces, and
kindle their desire for vengeance on the
loc. It is altogether a desirable and excel
lent change, expensive as it may prove
for the communities most interested, some
of which pay a heavy tuition fee for their
tardy lesson in loyalty.

vessels of war at Bermuda, and a line of
steamers, owned at Liverpool, were con
stantly running the blockade to Wilmington,
Y TTHI-n Tttt ~ ‘ ' ’ ' ■ ■ ~ ' ~ 1 ■■ * -
Late and direct advices from Gen. Grant"a
command modify considerably the expecta
tions based upon the tenor of recent dis
patches, that the actual attack on Vicksburg
was about to commence from the new base at
Carthage, striking at the rebels from, the
south and rear by the Black River. Indeed it
has been stated, on what was deemed the best
authority, that Gen. Grant had gone down to
Carthage, and that a day of lost week, had
been fixed for the sharp and decisive move
ment which was ibis time to be a success.
All this aspect of affairs seems to have been
premature and fictitious. Gen. Grant did in
deed go down to Carthage, but he has re
turned again to MUHkcn’s Bend, twenty-eight
miles above Vicksburg, where his headquar
ters arc retained, and are likely to remain for
some time to come. There is to be no direct
movement against Vicksburg at present, if,
indeed, It is ever taken In such manner.
What has been done is in the direction of
re-opening of the Mississippi River, and cut
ting off the rebel communications with the
Southwest. To this end a portion of the'
fleet of Admiral Porter, with several trans
ports carrying troops, and a large number of
barges with army stores, coal, «fcc., has been
run by the Vicksburg batteries to the new
post at Carthage, Louisiana, twenty-nine miles
below Vicksburg. The latest of these gal
lant achievements is well described in detail
by our correspondent, in another part of this
issue. Thus, the Federal force between
Vicksburg and Port Hudson is strengthened
beyond danger of being overpowered by the
rebels, and their main source of supplies from
the Southwest, through the Red River, is com
pletely cut oft
Abundant reference Las recently been made
to the new cut-off, which alone of all like at
tempts is declared a success. This new chan
nel has been confused with a still fourth one,
ol which latter, also, something is hoped.
Our small map above will sufficiently well in
dicate the location of these cut-offs. They
arc both reached through a short canal, cut
from the Mississippi to Duck Lake, a few
miles above Vioksbuig.
From this canal there is a very direct route
only seven miles long through Walnut Bayou
into the Mississippi, nearlj* opposite Warrca
ton. The route of this canal is shown at U A.”
At high stages of water it will be navigable
for light draught boats. There is no expecta
tion that the current of the river will wash
through it, as it is cut at a point where by an
eddy of the river the water is nearly still, and
further it is actually cut at an angle opening
up stream. The other and longer “ rounda
bout" cut-off is also shown in the interlock
ing bayous, which, reached by the same canal,
pass around Richmond, as shown in the map,
and after a tortuous course of over thirty
miles open upon the again at Car
thage. It is the former and shorter canal that
our dispatches have frequently spoken. It is
unlikely that the latter will be made available
or for obvious reasons desirable. With this
explanation the situation at Vicksburg will
be sufficiently well understood, and it is un
likely to be changed by any immediate move
ment of our forces.

Washington, April 28,1853.
It is not true that Daniel R. Goodloe has
been appointed Military Governor of North
Carolina, vice, Stanly. The probabilities nrc
in his favor, he being recommended by Stan
ly, and the President, with five Cabinet Min
i-ters being for him. Stanton, however, ob-
jects, either to his appointment, or that of
anybody else, on the sound ground that the
office is wholly unnecessary, besides being a
prolific source of quarrels with the Generals
commanding in the department.
Secretary Seward's party arc still down a£

this morning for a hasty visit.
The place has yet to be found where ne-

and on yesterday the President was notified
by Commissioner Dole, on bebalf of officers
engaged in this work, that if he would give
assurance of the same protection to blacks

would easily furnish an entire black brigade.
An effort to bribe certain officials In order
to get prisoners, confincd'in the old Capitol

It is reported that the McDowell commis

number of prominent officers in the South-
west in the crime of selling negroes for cot
ton or money, and that they will be dismissed

Commissioner Lewis has decided that man-
ufactured, sized, bleached or wrapping cotton

McRTREEsBoao, April 2S, 1563.
There arc rumors that the enemy are mak
ing a general movement ’towards Murfrees
boro. Some believe tliat within the last forty
eight hours their entire line has been advan
ced, and the headquarters of both Bragg and
Johnston arc established at Shelby villo. As
near as I can ascertain, and from various
rumors, the situation to-nigh: is as follows:
Two brigades of the enemy arc at Hell Buckle,
eight miles from Millerslmrg. Cheatham
commands at Tager’s Gap, twelve and u half
miles from Murfreesboro.
Contrabands cay heavy forces arc on Doo
little Pike, where they have thrown up en
Gen. Price has assumed command of Tulla
boma, relieving Bragg. The former is reported
to have brought large reinforcements, but
this is unreliable.

force being at Manchester, arc to-day con-
On the Triune they have strengthened their
force, as If again meditating an attack on
Union men, refugees, deserters, and con
trabands from the vicinity of Tullahoma and
Sbelbyvllle, express the opinion that if we
don't advance against the rebels, they will
shortly advance against us.
It is reported that the rebels were 75,000
strong at Tullahoma, two weeks ago.
JkliriiFßEKSßono, April 2S.— I The rebels are
reported as having made important move
ments on our front, materially changing the
situation. Whether it is In reply to ours on
McMinnville, or that the rebels are weary
waiting for us to advance, is not known.
, It Isknown that Bragg has been reinforced
by one brigade from Mobile, and a Missis
sippi regiment from Vicksburg was sent back
from Chattanooga. A force has reinforced
Manchester, to strengthen the rebel right.
One brigade went back from Shclbyville to
Tullahoma. Johnston Is reported to have
moved his quarters to ShelbyviUe.
Gen. Cheatham's division is at Gay’s Gap,
twelve miles from Murfreesboro, on the Shel
by ville and Triennc roads.
There are two brigades at Bell Buckle,
while a third force Is said to be at Doolittle
X’ike for some days. It is believed iu rebel
camp* that if Rosecrans did not advance,
Bragg would attack. One authority says
Bragg has 75,000 men. There is no confirma
tion of the reported death of Bragg.
Nashville, April 2S.— 100 prisoners cap
tured at McMinnville, reached here last night.
Preparations arc being made to send all cit
izens South who refuse to take the oath.
They will leave in a few days. All quiet at
Franklin and Murfreesboro.

Cincinnati, April 28,1853.
The Lexington and Frankfort, Kentucky,
newspapers have contained of late hundreds
of advertisements of runaway slaves, and giv
ing notice under the State laws that unless
their owners come forward and identify their
slaves, and take them back they will he sold.
The jails at Frankfort, Lexington and Lou
isville, are full of these slaves, who have cs
eapt d from their rebel masters and come Into
our line?, and who under the President’s
proclamation are free. Some of these were
about to be sold back into bondage, when
Gen. Burnside came to their relief to-day, in
the following general order, which was issued
this evening, and will appear to-morrow;
Cincinnati, April 2d, 1563. )
General Ordeks No. 13.—1n accordance
■with the spirit of the Proclamation of the
President of the United States, dated January
Ist, 11*60, it is ordered that all persons belong
ing to or following the army in this Depart
ment, are forbidden to interfere with or
impede the operation of any civil process in
the State of Kentucky, having in view the
recovery of slaves of citizens of the State,
and they are likewise forbidden to aid or abet
in their escape from their homes, or employ
such persons against the consent of their
owners, except in eases where military neces
sity requires their impressment, which im
pressment must be made in accordance with
regulations governing such cases.
11. All slaves made free by the war meas
ures of the President of the United States, by
Congress s , or by capture during the war, are
entitled to their freedom, and no one in the
department has a right to interfere with that
freedom. Any sale of such persona in this
district is void. The rights of citizens must
be respected by the army, and the war meas
ures of the Government must be sustained.
m. Any persons wilfully violating this or
der, will be at once arrested and reported to
the headquarters of Gen. Doyle, at Louis
ville, for trial. Regulations, to prevent con
tusion and injustice in the execution of thl*
order, will soon be published.
By command of Major General Burnside.
Lewis Richmond,
Assistant Adjutant General.
General Burnside has also issued an order
changing the time of the execution of Thomas
M. Campbell, from May Ist to May Slh.
Forty rebel soldiers and three spies were
arrested and brought into Lexington, Ky.,
to-day. They will be brought down hero and
sent to Camp Chase. Jack Caldwell, a noto
rious rebel leader, who has been in the Con
federate army, was arrested to-day, back of
Covington, and sent to Camp Chase.
A man named Dick Eggleston, who hurrah
ed in Covington, to-day, for Jeff Davis, was
immediately arrested and sent to Camp Chase
this evening.

It is known a force is moving from New Mad

avenue of escape is a very swift march on the
Chalk Bluff and Bloomfield road, but owing
to numerous streams on this route it is doubt,
fol if they can carry off their artillery even on
this route.
The reported evacuation of Fayetteville was
premature. An order to that effect was only
pending. Refugees are pouring into the place,

Neil close in pursuit. It was McNeil’s Inten
tion to send a force in the enemy’s rear for
the purpose of dcstroyinga bridge over White
Water, thus cutting off their retreat. Should
he succeed in this, most of the rebel force
must be captured. Some fear has been fcit
here that the Federal force from New Madrid,
which was out, 2,000 strong, might be overrun
by the rebels, who number not leas than 7,000,
all cavalry and artillery.
McNeil’s forces were all mounted.
7ho principal object of the rebels was to
gather supplies, and they have completely
stripped the counties through which they
have passed, making no difference between
friend and foe. The soldiers would enter
houses and take whatever was wanted,
exchanging their old clothes for the best they
could Imd. The roads are strewn with frag
ments of their booty, telegraph poles were
cut down, and the wires broken up and car
ried away.
From Wheeling—Movements of
the Rebels.
Rebel Movements Against the
Baltimore and Ohio R. R.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Cincinnati, April 2S, I^*3.
Seroral dispatches received to-day from
Wheeling announce that the rebels hare made
an attack on the B. & 0. H. R., near Grafton,
and hare cut the wire. It is reported to-night
that two trains on the road have been cap
tured and destroyed. No trains will leave
Wheeling or Parkcrsbnrg, going cast, until
the truth is ascertained.
A gentleman who has arrived hero from
Wheeling, states that he was informed before
he left yesterday morning, that a rebel force
had come into Oakland, and another into
Eowlesbnrg, and had cut the wires, and were
committing other depredations on the road,
and it was reported that fighting ha* been
going on near Rowlcsbnrg. The Wheeling
InUlUgcnecr contains the following: Nothing
was known at Grafton of Col. Latham’s com
mand, but it was the impression of Col. Wil
kinson that it was cut oft somewhere between
Beverly and PliiUlppl.
We also Icam that intelligence of a reliable
character, has been received from other sour
ces, going mainly to confirm these statements.
Col. Latham's exact situation is not known,
but this fact alone proves that he is cut off
Whether between Beverly and Buchanan, or
between Beverly and Phillippi, is not known.
It Is said he burned the Government stores
at Beverly before leaving there; but how
fins should be known, and nothing known of
his present situation, we cannot see. It ap
pears certain, at least, that all Ms communi
cations are cut off, if nothing worse has hap
New York, April 2S, 1863.—A Harrisburg
dispatch of to-day states that many contra
dicted reports are circulating relative to the
rebel raid. There is no doubt the rebels have
taken Morgantown, and occupy it with some
4,000 to 8,000 troops under Jenkins.
Our troops arc in motion to Intercept
them, and artillery Is being sent from Harris
Another dispatch from Uniontown, Penn
sylvania, states that the rebel flags are float
ing over Morgantown, and men, women and
children are flying in all directions. Pitts
burg is thought to be in some danger.
The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad between
Chambersburg and Grafton is destroyed.
Balttmohb, April 28.—The Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad can now be regarded as entirely
safe. No property was taken in the recent
rebel raid, nor was any of the road injured
except a small bridge near Oakland, which
was slightly damaged, and which Is now re
pairing, and will be ready for the passage of
the regular trains to-morrow morning.
Through trains, both cast and west, will then
be resumed, on the entire length of the road,
for freight and passengers.
Large Government forces have been moved.,
to .'ill important points on the line, which
guarantees ample and permanent protection.
The delay of the prompt and regular working
of the road will not exceed twenty-four hoflrs.
Philadelphia, April 2s. —A large amount

were driven off. No damage was done to the
road 01 Government property.
There are also reports that”a rebel force has
marched westward, but It is believed to liave
been checkmated by our troops.
New York, April 23.—The rumors that the
rebels are marching on Wheeling and Pitts
burg rests on the fact that a forcoiiad appear
ed at Morgantown, Va , on the Monongahela
River, near the State line of Pennsylvania.
No fears are entertained for either place. It
is not probable that the rebel force will pro
ceed any furtherNorlh.
A dispatch to the Washington S(ar t dated
Harper*?Ferry,yesterday, says: “We have
information that the rebel Generals Jones and
Imboden, with some force, are at Moorfield,

The Baltimore American of Mondav. says:
“Humors of rebel approaches to the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad have assumed quite a seri
ous aspect. On Sunday evening and during
Sunday a movement of eight thousand troops
was made on the road to strengthen points
west of the Cumberland, and two regiments
left Baltimore to hike the places of those
moved further westward.
On Sunday night two companies of rebel
cavalry made their appearance at Kowelsburg,
and were driven off, and did not succeed fa
damaging the Cheat river bridge.
There has also been a rebel force for two
days not far from Clarksburg, threatening to
advance on the road.

sels, has made a proposition to the Secretary
of the Navy to the following effect: lie
offers to take a Monitor up the harbor of
Charleston, removing on lus way any ob
structions that may impede the progress of
the ships, or, if the Department only de
sires the destruction of Fort Sumter, ho will
accomplish that. A State Senator of'‘Califor
nia, who enjoys, to a largo degree, the confi
dence of engineers, also offers to accompany
Mr. Wood on the important expedition named.
It is understood that the President and Sec
retary Welles look on the proposition with
favor, but the action of the Government, of
course, is not known.
