It is safe to believe that Lee has aban
doned his Pennsylvania scheme as a fail

vere visitation to the rich region into which
his lean hordes were poured. He saw,and
seeing, he appreciated the fstness of the
land in horses, cattle and much grain and
the rich spoils of distressed farmers, sent
southward an his hungiy wagon trains.
What the spoils were our dispatches begin
to tell ns. The clothing of men and women
and little children; boots, no booty more
precious; and the plunder of households,
Bach are the revelations made by the over
hauling of these freebooters by our scouts

and metal, the test seems to have been ac
cepted by Lee as conclusive without posh

There is nothing yet to indicate that. The
rebel General accepted the hint of defeat
•without the fact, and later dispatches show
that he is on Lis route toward the Poto
mac. We trust the dispatches of Gen.
Meade on the point The statements of
other dispatches as to the demoralizations
and desertions of the rebels fall upon our
cars with a familiar sound. It strikes us
we have heard them before. We pass

the situation. There is enough

Jt Is undoubtedly true that Lee is eager
to get back. There are reasons in both
front and. rear. From the rebel capital
«TefL himself calls chidingly to the once
pet general of the rebels. Lee has ven

to Lee’s reputation, even if he succeeds in
leading his shattered army back into Vir
Will he get back? That is the question.
Confessedly if he escapes without further
harm from our troops it will be a mortify

Gaizsbubo, Knox Co , 111., June 27,18C3.
The eighteenth commencement of Knox
College, Galesburg, IQ, took place June 25th.
On the previous Sabbath the bacalanreate dis
course was preached by Prot Bailey. Tho
prize rhetorical exercises took place on the
evening of the 23d. The speaking was un
usually good. The competitors were C. G.
■Williams, Win. Craig, H.' C. Willard, J. C.
LaUmcr/O. H. Pitcher,audit. A. Ortrander.
Fir. Willard received the first prize, and Mr.
Craig the second. On the 24th occurred the
fourteenth commencement of tho female col
legiate department. Ten young ladles gradu
ated, viz.: Ganny Ayres, Sarah O. Bonce Isa
bella Cothren, Jcrnsha B. Farnham, Ma. jJ,
Fnruham, Harriet M. Ferris, Ella G. Ferris,
Xouita Jndson, Isabella Smith and Francis M.
Tryon. The essays were well written, and
distinctly read, and produced a very happy
impression. The address was delivered by
Bev. C. N. Mattoon, D. D., ol Rockford.
Diplomas awarded by Pro£ Bailey. At the'
close of the exercises, and before the audi
ence left the room, a Bible and an album was
. presented to Prof 8., by the graduates In
both departments. : ■ • ' •
In the evening of the same day the Alumni
were addressed by Prof George Churchill.
He stated that this was his first speech in
public, and then proceeded to give an in
structive and amusing account of his travels
in Europe. :
The “great day of the feast,” and com
mencement proper, was on Thursday. The
following are the names of the graduates
and their themes: . Edward H. Curtis, inde
pendence of character; Sam Hunt, progress
of liberty in Europe; W. D. Latimer, the
statesman; G.M. Roberts, popular govern
ments; C. H- Thompson, day approaches
surely though slowly. These speeches were
all well delivered, < and reflect honor on the
speakers and the college. Hr. Curtis is a son
of the lately deceased President of the col
lege; and Mr. Bunt is a nephew of' Parson
Brownlow. The Master's oration, by J. A.
McKenzie, was brief, able, and patriotic.
Capt. McKenzie has been compelled to resign
bis post in the army on account of ill health.
The degree of A. It. was conferred on Messrs.
McKenzie, Bobbins and Boyce. The Presl
, dent elect, Rev. W. 8. Curtis, D. D., of Ham
ilton college, N. T., then delivered bis inau
gural. Theme, the American College. His
address, though of great length, and on this
account faulty, was very able, original, and
practical, and gave great satisfaction to the
friends of the college.
The Late Confederate Sue-
[Correspocdcnce N. T. World.]
New Obleanp, Jane 36,1883.
It required no gift of prophecy to predict,
as 1 did in my lost, the probable “gobble”
of the Federal forces at Brashear City. Their
capture was inevitable, unless gunboats and
transports could be tern around by the Golf
to Berwick's Bay in time to take away these
men. The Confederates wore between La
fourche (Thibodeaux) and Brasbear, and held
Ihe line of the Opelousas Railroad. No rein
foi cements or trains could be sent from,
here. There was, indeed, no escape what
To recapitulate a. little: Saturday and
Sunday there were skirmishers at Lafourche
Crossing, and the official account carried yon
news of the Federal victory. It was pom*
pously announced in the official, the
would-be official, acd was copied by the
other city papers. There was no objection
whatever to the publication of this new*,not
withstundingthe ominous silence about Port
Hudson, ever since the assault of May 27;
and only yesterday the Provost Marshal sent
word to the city papers that they would
make no allusions for the present to military
movements in this Department, which meaus,
to *aj nothing about the capture of Brashear
city, which the newsboys cried about the
town yesterday, and the abandonment of the
lafouiche country by the Federal forces.
The “victory’* ou Sunday at Laflmrebe
crossing was followed by the speedy retreat
of the Federal forces to Bate station. Before
leaving Lafourche they burned the railroad
bridge at the crossing, and several of the re*
turned soldiers say that they spiked their bat*
Uiy and threw the guns imo the bayou. At
Bute station they proceeded to intrench them*
oeives, and their subsequent operations are
significantly summed up in the return of the
16th Maine regiment to thia city yesterday
with word that “the rest was coming,’’ and
the return this morning of the 2Gth Massa
chusetts, sent over as a reinforcement lost
Saturday evening. The Confederates mean*
w bile tore up a mile or more of the track
west of the crossing, and between the two
forces, Fedcrals and Confederates, the Ope
lousas road may be considered for a “me
dium of communication” as dead as the
Rochester Fox family.
Until Gen. Banks raises the siege, or fakes
Port Hudson, or until he is reinforced from
Port Boyal or elsewhere, the Lafourche conn
tiy is in the hands of the Confederates, *nd
pending the reliefs there will be no immedi
ate action for the revision of the State Con
stitution and the revival of the civil govern
Last Monday the United States transport
6L Wary, Capt. Talbott, left W* port aud
vent round via the Gulfj to communicate
with Berwick’s Bay. Tuesday evening while
running up the bay, she met the United
States gunboat Hollyhock (the old Reliance)
twenty-five miles from Brashear city. The
St. Wary took on board the gunboat’s passen
gers—the (late) provost marshal of Brashear
at d about forty Federal soldiers who bad es
caped on this boat. From them were gath
ered the following particulars with regard to
the capture by the Confederates of Brashear
News of Saturday’s and Sunday’s operations
at Lafourche crossing reached the force at
Brashear city. It is arid (but lam not cer
tain of this) that the field guns of the 2Ut In
diana (infantry regiment, how the First Indi
ana) batteiy were sent to reinforce the Fede
rals at the crossing. If this is thp case, the
Confederates will be obligedtojflsh them out
oi the bayou, instead ol removing them, as
they might nave done, from Brasher city.
The force at Brashear city expected “U attack;
but they looked for the attack from .Lafourche,
and were fairly surprise? - n tenUlv.jww*n*i*
in a military sense—when at daylight Tuesday
morning two batteries, planted the Digit pre
vious, opened upon them from Berwick city,
opposite, and not an hoar after came crashing
through the woods a mixed mass of horse and
footmen. There were not more than sir
hundred of them, and they were a portion of
Wonton’s force from the west bank ot the
Teche. . They crossed on rafts and flat boats,
lending on the south hank of Lake Falondre,
charged into town, and came in the rear of the
Federal*, who were looking for an advance
upon Bayou Ba-uf It -was short work. There
was no fighting. The provost marshal and a
few men near the bay succeeded in getting ou
board theHollyhok. The rest were “gob
As a raid, surprise, or “ gobble,” it was a
most important achievement for the Confed
erates, and a disaster to the Federals. There
are no means of knowing precisely the num
ber of men who were taken prisoners. They
were volunteers belonging to the 23d Con
necticut, the 176 th New York, and the Ist In
diana batteiy, with several sick and convales
cent men. Two thousand negroes—men,
women and children—were in the city, not
one of whom escaped. There is reason to
believe that -some ot the soldiers joined the
Federal forces at Lafourche Sunday evening.
Those who remained ore prisoners. The Ist
Indiana batteiy men were on duty at Fort Bu
chanan, an earthwork on Lake Falondre, com
manding the inlet of the Atcbofalaya river.
Capt. Noblett’s horse came into the city from
the fort riderless, and the fate of the rider is
only conjectured at.
There were four heavy gans In the fort, one
30 pound Parrott in the city, three, or four
runs on the earthworks at Bayou Bee of, and
ibj'he magazine there were 30,000 rounds of
ammunition for these guns. In addition to
the (temporary, at least) occupation of this
important position, and the capture of these
guns and ammunition, there were other very
desirable spoils in the place.. When Gen.
Banks made his advance to Alexandria, wish
ing to encumber the army as little as possible
ou the march, he left everything that was su
perfluous at Brashear city. His tents, his
army’s knapsacks; the officers’ baggage, con
siderable supplies of stores and provisions,
have all fallen into the hands of the Confeder
ates. Beyond the few clothes worn by those
who escaped on the Hollyhock (and they did
not stop to make veiy elaborate toilettes)
ever) thing was captured.
Lately a email train has been ran dally on
the Jackeon Bailroad to" Kenner, fourteen
miles above the city, and sometimes on to
Manchac, on tbe South Pass of Lake Manre
pas, Manchac Pass bas been the scone of
bridge burning more than once within a few
months past. Pesterday a train with the
only locomotive on the road was sent np to
Manchac to bring the hand cars, tools, and
men who have just completed the repairs of
the bridge. The train did not return, and we
have news this morning that it was taken by
Ihe now hold the Foss. As
this gives them the control of the road, and
affords a direct route to the city, the Conted-
C! ates will not he likely to destroy the bridge,
unless compelled to do so to ent off an ad*
vanning Federal force from New Orleans.
. Gen. Banks, bo far as we know, “holds Ms
owfc ” in the rear of Port Hudson. Admiral
Farragut is near Springfield Landing with the
Tennessee (flag ship), Genessee v Richmond,
Essex (Iron-clad). Sachem, and six mortar
schooners. .The Hartford, Estrella, and Alba-
tross of this fleet ore supposed to be above.
Gen. Emory commands the defenses of New
Orleans. The Confederates occupy the entire
State west of Lafourche Crossing and north
of the Opelousas railroad. The situation is
more interesting and critical than it lias been
at any time since April 25,1862, when Farra
gnt with his fleet appeared befdre Now Or
leans and demanded the unconditional sur
render of the city.
Jn the city the provost guard has been
doubled, and other p re cautions (which it
would be improper to mention at present,)
are taken to secure the safety of New Orleans.
The fe.w soldiers here are paraded (I cannot
but think with a very feeble show of ostenta
tion, considering their number,) through the
streets, and there is more drum, fife, and bu
gle business than has been manifested since
the day Neal How paraded his brigade. The
gunboats Pensacola/ Monongahela, Ports
mouth, Circassian, Kinneo, and the armed
etorcsliip Fearnought, lie opposite the city in
the river; the forts built some years since be
low the city are supposed to be there; Jim
Hnke has gone to Mobile (where he arrived
safely,) with the tugboat Boston, and the son
shines as serenely over river, bay, ondbayon
as it did in the happy but past days of peace.
Recognized, at Last.
It appears Arom an official document pub
lished in the Loudon Index, never haying been
published in this country, that one Ernst Ra
ven waa appointed Consul for the State of
■ Texas by bis serene Highness, the Duke of
Saxe-Cobuig and Goths, and did on the 80th
of3uly, 1801, apply to the government of tho
Confederate States for an exequatur' which

Gen. Pierce, in command of Mllroy’s troops,
on Saturday evening, captured a rebel wagon
train of about 100 wagons, between Cham

chiefly plunder, consisting of clothes, shoes,
hats, and even women and children’s clothing.
A great many rebel wagons foil into onrhands

inforced the wearied troops of Meade. It is
not likely that the rebels will a stand
to fight another pitched battle, as not one

completely demoralized. Prisoners and de

It has been raining all day. The Potomac
if still rising, and it is confidently believed
by knowing ones that Lee, in order to avoid
further carnage, will surrender. As oar forces

Interesting Statement of Eeleased
Washington, July 3.—A. G. Hatfield and
lady, of Lancaster, Pa., who were captured at
the fall of Winchester, reached here to-night
from Richmond, having left that city yester
day morning.
They were released with 000 privates at
Winchester, who have been sent to Camp Pa
role, Annapolis, together with two commis
sioned officers, who have been in the Rich
mond Penitentiary nine months as hostages
for some rebels recently held by us. They
were the only officers released, even our sur
geons and chaplains being detained.
Tbe ladies wbo were wives of officers, some
twelve In number, were regarded as prisoners
of war and have been subjected to the most
cruel treatment. At Winchester they were
confined by the rebels in a small fort promis
cuously with other prisoners, and on being
released were famished with wretched accom
modations for transit to Richmond, several
ladles being obliged to walk twenty and thirty
miles. At every place they were booted at,
Insulted, and universally looked npon os
Yankee curiosities. On arriving at Richmond
they were closely imprisoned and treated as
most of our.prisoners have been before them.
There was a decided scare on Friday lost,
when Col. Spear, of Dix’s forces, made'his
raid so near Richmond. The entire city was
alarmed, so much so that nearly a thousand
rebel soldiers, confined In same prison with
three civilians, for military offences, were
called npon and told that they would be fur
nished with arms, and immediately ordered
out in front of Richmond. The commanding
officer reported that the Yankees were then
within a few miles. On Colonel Spear’s re
treat the excitement subsided, hut therrf Is
still constant fear of on attack, which was ex
pected almost daily.
There are believed to he abont 6,000 troops
In Richmond, mostly conscripts and homo
guards. The prisoners saw boys not more
than twelve years of age drilling in the
streets. It Is certain that none or Bragg’s
forces have reached Richmond, nor that that
city has been reinforced otherwise. It is the
opinion that it could now be easily token.

Great Union Meeting- in North
ern lowa. '
[From our Special Correspondent]
McGregor, July 3, 1863.
The meeting held at this place on .Tuesday,
June SO, 1863, was the largest and most enthu
siastic ever be[d in Northern lowa. The num
ber present was variously estimated .at from
seven to ten thousand. Able and patriotic
Seeches were made in the forenoon by Lieut,
mderson, who was wounded at Corinth, and
the Rev. Mr. Sweannger, La the afternoon,
the procession formed at the public square,
and Marched to the residence of CoL Monett,
of the 21st lowa, who was lying, in bed from
the wounds received by him at Black Elver
Bridge, and gave the Colonel three ronsing
cheers, and three more for the gallant 21st;
then marched to Market Square. «Hon. Mat*
D. Carpenter took the stand, and for two
hours and a half held the vast throng spell
bound, except when be made some telling nit,
or some patriotic appeal, when the whole as
sembly would rise as one man, and rend the
air with their deafening cheers. Since that
&rcech I have been unable to find a sympath
*42* r with treason.
Hon. John F. Dillon also made a very*tlo
quent address.
On the stand and !n .the assembly, were
Democrats and Republicans In former days,
but now forgetting their party predellctions,
and sending to 'Heaven their load cheers for
the old flag and the glorious Union. O.

Bocktord, July 6,1563.
Among the many brave men who have fallen
victims to thl* unholy rebellion, the loss of
none has given ns more pain than that of
Lieut. CoL Smith of the 45th Illinois (known
as the "Washburne Lead Mine Regiment), who
fell at the head of his regiment, where he was
in command, in taking Port Hill, one of the
strongest fortifications at Vicksburg. At the
battles of Fort Donelson and Shiloh, with
his gallant regiment, right well did they do
their part In achieving thosebrilliant victories.
In the prime of life, in the midst of useful
ness as a respected citizen and a true patriot,
he fell, covered with wounds, at the post of
'Winnebago has thrice been called. In the
past Jew months, to moorn the loss of her
gallant eons, in Ellis of the 15th, Kevins of
thelltb, and now Smith of the 45th—Lieu
tenant Colonels all—with many of her brave
sons whose names are not now beside ns, and
too numerous to be named in this hasty sketch.
Illinois and the great, free Northwest! what
a glorious record will the future historian
make up of the patriots who have gone ont at
the call of their country, from that portion of
our fair land exempt from Hie curse of slavery
by the glorious Jeffersonian ordinance 0f1787/

There has never gathered upon the banks of
this lovely lake, a more happy and enthusias

came from all the country round to celebrate
the Fourth of July.
The day was splendid, the roads fine, and
the shady groves and the pure waters of the
Lake, all combined to bring out the multi

man and, English‘tongue, and they came in
due time,' to enlighten, arouse to patriotism,
and to prepare-the people for any and all
emergencies which the crisis may demand.'
Mr. Brentano, of the IlUnoia Staata ZeU*uvr t
was promised os the German speaker, buc not
coming; on account of sickness, his place
was well filled, from the same office, by Mr.
Kapp, whose speech to the Germans told pow

Hr. C. of Chicago, delivered a
splendid oration, showing the greatness of
the nation in a physical point ot view, and
how much greater it should be in the-mental
and moral aevelopmhnt oi oar people. ttu
eloquent production made a profound sensa
tion, elicited applause and drcwfbrtha hearty
vote of IBanka.
Hr. Clark, of Messrs. Clark, Cornell and
Norton, of Chicago, made one of the ablest
and most telling speeches ever heard in Lake
county, and caused cheer after cheer to go np
from the assembled multitude.
All the speakers will be gratefully remem
bered for their able and patriotic efforts, and
the hearts of all onr Union men, women and
children will beat all *tbe stronger for God
and the right.
The Ladies’ Soldiers* Aid Society was .well
prepared with refreshments dedicated to the
beat of causes, and their ibnd was increased
about a hundred dollars. A more tireless and
heroic bandof women can nowhere be found.

gone before,” from this town, to the battle
fields of the country, whenever called for.
. The crops on every side promise uncom
monly well, and the mighty valley, here and
beyond, to be furnished a market by the Chi

pour out its golden treasures as never douo
before. Let Chicago be ready; the North
