Once more lie tocan of-'war sounds along Hie Rappahannock, and the quiet which has reigned supreme seems destined again to be broken. Lee's army is on tho move, closely watched-by Meade, and onr advance lias already come up villi the rebel cavalry. Lee is evidently in a situ ation where lie is forced to give battle. A victory alone will save bis army from de moralization, and the, battle will be one for life or death. XT defeated, the rebellion is practically ended, Meade has the Ga llic confidence of the Government and his army. Let lam be reinforced with men and munitions ns rapidly as possible, and the destruction of the rebel army is se cured. With half the rebel territory In our bands, Charleston threatened, Bragg and Johnston fugitives, and the Confed eracy rent with intestine convulsion, the essential dement of final success is the overthrow of Lee’s army. To that end, every energy should be bent. THE COKDEMNSD COBBAL. From lime to time some party adver tises a sale of condemned Government horses and mules. An event so attractive to small speculators must frequently occur, while the wear and tear of the war con tinues to fall heavily on horse and mule fiesh. Did yon ever look in upon a corral of condemned slock ? If you have, it has tried your faith in the horse and Ms cous ins, while all the Ills known to these ani mals passed in sorry review before yon. Horses with spavins, ringbones, poll evils, sweenies, bolts, curbs, splcats, string halt, glanders. Horses distempered, brbken kueed, wind-galled, broken-winded, foun dered. Steeds, hairless, blind and lame. Altogether a walking horse hospital. The Government is wise in selling this ghastly sediment of its cavaliy and artillery and transportation trains. consume fod der. They are not available lor further service. They may cheaply seek retiracy to the drays and express wagons of civil life. The history of these quadrupeds is va rious. Some ■were a cheat from the -first Foisted upon the Government hy horse chanters, fraudulently run in with other hotter lots, or kuavishly admitted by bribes in the hot palms of scoundrel inspectors. Others nm well for a season, but failed un timely, under tasks too great for them. A pony cannot play Bucephalus. And yet the psigendes of the Government enforce the consideration of only one rule, vtiUty 4 "What can they do noa! says the Quarter master's Department Nothing. Then rid the service of them. 60 the relentless hammer frdls. The Government lias another corral tint deserves a little rigid attention, and it may well borrow from tbc mlcs of tlie first a UlUe soimd “horse sense." We have a lengthening string of lame and condemned Major Generals and Brigadier Generals, from the larger share of whom no ono ex pects further service. They, are already branded with the latal “C,” which does not always mean condemned in the matter of built, bat for the matter of knotty fret. Theta ate nearly lorty of these already on the list, and when you make the .computa tion that a Brigadier takes from the public cnb three hundred dollars a month, and a Major General four hundred and fifty dol lars, it will he seen that the corral in ques tion is a most expensive one. The history of these lame military heroes may be dis cussed without a departure from horac par lance. That excellent animal, the horse, is so favorite an adjunct to military fir., ores in lithography :and sculpture, there should he no sqceamishncss in admitting him into a military figure of speech. Some* of the inmates of the condemned Army corral were a cheat from the first and only found their way in by skilful jockeying. Some were at the outset the VOLUME XVII. victims of a distemper that used to he en demic on the Hudson river, at a place called West Point. Some early became spavined from constitutional weakness. — Some always "interfered" badly. Some caught the glanders of the rebellion from contact with the rebels. Some were too weak for the work set for them. Some ran well fora season but proved short winded. Some stumbled. Some had the blind staggers, or were foundered, a form of disease in these cases never attributed to cold water. Some were balky, like Budl. Some shyed like JGitoy. Some refused to work in double harness. Some were great cribbcrs. Some galled so ea sily that their hacks and shoulders were always sore. It Is not discovered that any of them have ever refused their feed. The people get cheated in their horses, both in and out of the army. YYhj was it less to be expected that they should come to disappointment in the matter of some of their militaiy commanders Y TYe urge that this corral is too expense to maintain in its present full condition. Some of its inmates may yet be put at work. |The bulk of them will never wear the harness again. One strict score of utility should dispose of them, and the YYar Department thus generalize a rule of its subordinate branches, the prompt disposal of all con demned articles as the best economy, wdl attested by all experience. Indemnity lor Swamp hands, The subject of Indemnity for Swamp Lands under the Acts of Congress 0f1855 and IS$7 seems to be misunderstood by parties interested, and claims Involvlnglaigeamounts are made upon the General Land Office. The points by which the applicants should be governed, and which guide the Commissioner In his decision, may be briefly stated. In 1855 &n Act of Congress was passed confirm ing the original locators ol swamp lands in their titles in contradistinction with the State agents, who had meanwhile selected some of the same lands, bat gave the State indemnity by turning over the purchased money, if any was paid, or guaranteeing an equivalent in lands where the swamp lands were entered under a warrant. Subsequently, finding that other swamp lands had been entered by pri vate Individuals at the District Land Offices, auActwas passed March 3,1857, extending the indemnify to cover all lands so entered up to that time. Consequently, on lands entered since, the locator has no claim If en tered by the State, and cannot claim indem nity. As quite a number of cases exist, Involving large amonnts, on effort will un doubtedly be made to obtain further legisla tion on the matter. FROM IOWS. Death of -an Ambitious Brigadier, Imperial Dispatch to the Chicago Tribzma.} DzsiioiXES,lowa,Aug. IS,ISOS. Brigadier General James M. Tuttle’s letter accepting the Copperhead nomination for Governor has at lost made its appeironcc. The following Is a portion of its language: “lam informed by men of both'political parties, since my arrival at home, that the public mind has been so Inflamed by dema gogues on both sides, that there is danger of collision at any time, so much so as to seri ously embarrass the Government. The mass es of the people of nil parties are loyal, but a species of Intolerance prevails that Is really becoming alarming unless they can be in duced to use mere moderation in the pro mulgation of their peculiar views on' the questions that agitate the public mind, most of which are entirely outside of tbc mala and only question noirbeforc the people, that is the putting down of the rebellion. All par ties desire that to be done as speedy and effectually os possible. The groat point to be desired Is that minor Issues and questions should be all laid aside until we again have an united courtly.” The letter throughout is a studied effort to deceive Union men, and at tbc same time conciliate Copperheads, Ills a shallow hy pocritical affair, and will only excite for its anther the contcmptof his friends and the pity of bis enemies. FROM SFHINDFSELD. [Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.) Eraixcrmu), DL. Aug. 18, ISOS. It Is reported here that the K. G. O.’s of Fullon county are fortifying to resist the Government. I learn that they desire Cob L. W. Boss to lead them, but I doubt if he is prepared to take each a step. He is a peace end anli-cocrcicn Democrat, however. Troops left here to-day for that part of the State, to reiniorcc those already there. The Fultcn county Democrat threatens that it will take twenty times two companies of cavalry to clean out Pulton county. The K. G. C.’s are better organized in that part of the State than In any other. The parlies arrested in Fulton county charged with obstructing the enrollment and firing upon the troops, have arrived here. They appeared before Judge Treat, of the XJ. 6. District Court, waived an examination, and gave bail in the sum of SI,OOO each for their appearance at the next term. Their names arc John Graham, Franklin Brown, Joseph Brown, John Brown and Platte Lane. Cob Alex. P. Dysant, of the 34th Infantry, has resigned. CcL Jasper A.

At Lincoln to day, a Copperhead said In the presence of a returned sick soldier that he would—a Za Treasurer 6tame—“ sooner fight for Jeff. Davis, than Abo Lincoln.” Tho soldier Immediately knocked Mm down and heat him badly. At GUnton, DoTOtt county, a day or two since, some furloughed soldiers of Grant’s army compelled some seventeen Copperheads in one crowd to lake off and give up their badger. The next day the Copperheads came in armed, to the number of twenty or thirty, with badges, and supported by a number of friends. About seventeen soldiers Imznedl atclygot together, armed themselves, met the Copperheads and demanded that the badges be given up. They were given up. The soldiers (hen said that they were just os ready to fight traitors at home as rebels abroad, and that the next time the badges wore worn they would shoot first and take them off afterwards. After tiffs last case the K* G. CTs immediately held an Indignation meeting. Sixteen deserters were brought in from the Peoria district to-day. FROM MADIS9H.

Canvassing lu regard to the candidates is actively going on.

Bore Stirring Aspects of the Campaign. ISpMtel Dispatch to the Chicaso Tribme.l WAsmsoTos, Ang, IS, ISS3. The general impression prevails among offi cers from the army of the Potomac, that the rebels-are organizing, with great care, a raid intended to interfere with Gen. Meade's lines cf communication. Such a movement on their pwt will result in a gacat cavalry fight, probably about Dumfries. With the exception of some slight skir mishing yesterday, everything Is quiet along the lines. The health of our army Is excel lent. The following item appears in to-day’6 publican : The greatest activity prevailed in the army yesterday. Considerable firing was heard along the front, produced probabl by a demonstration made to cover a certain successful movement which the rebels probably know all about by this time* and the country will understand. Tor farther particulars on the subject, vre' refer our readers to. the leader In the £fj>uob><m,oC the 2SJi of July. Many of our contemporaries who were startled at its appearance at the time, mil better un derstand It now, especially when they leom that the propositions which it con tained have become’’ the settled mili tary policy of the Government. New York, August 18.—The New York IHbwjic’sspecialfrom Washington says: “De* sorters report a movement of a portion ol Lee’s army in the direction of Dumfries, for the purpose-of flanking Gen. Meade on the left. Scouts report, however, all quiet as to any movement. The rebels ore engaged in throwing up earthworks. Part of Longstreet’s corps is at United States Ford. A proper disposition of our forces has been made to prevent any advance of the enemy. Every thing continues quiet. The rumor that Lee has crossed a portion of Ms forces over the Rappahannock has been proved untrue by onr cavalry. The army holds Itself in readiness to move at a mo ment’s notice, so that any attempt of Lee to Advance wCI be promptly met. The Ifa'ald has the following; “ Headquarters Anar or tub Potomac, ) ~ Aujmst 30, 1803. / A contraband deserted from Lee’s army yesterday forenoon, and came within our lines. He reports that, on Wednesday morn ing, tho whole of Lee’s army, with the excep tion of A. P. Hill’s corps, moved from Cul pepper Comt House by the Fredericksburg road. He also confirms the stories ot the de moralization of the North Carolina, Tennes see and Alabama troops. Those from North Carolina in Hill’s corps have openly revolted, oud swear they will fight no longer. The Missippl troops arc clamorous to be sent home. The contraband deserter’s story of the movements of the rebel troops is farther confirmed by reports from our scouts. . On Saturday a large force of rebel infantry and cavalry, with some artillery, made Its op pcarance on the south bank of the Rappa hannock, above Falmouth. Another story Is that they crossed at Fredericksburg ou Friday night, hut I consider the report of their cross ing highly improbable. The news from the front this morning Is cheering. Inasmuch os It points to a termina tion of oar term of non-action. TTc arc all momentarily expecting orders to pull up stakes. Heavy firing has been distinctly heard since 3 o’clock this morning, in a southeasterly di rection, apparently in the neighborhood of Banks’ or the U. S. ford, or, possibly, as fir away as Fredericksburg. Tbs firing Is rapid and constant. A battle is evidently going on. Large bodies of troops were moving yester day, marching byrafl, and that our advance lias come up with the enemy may safely be inferred from the noise this morning. The Washington special to the Herald says: This morning the enemy made a demonstra tion on the left of our army, and heavy can nonading ensued for some lime. No intelli gence concerning results bos reached ‘Wash ington to-day, but It is believed tbc move ment was nothing more than a reconnolssance in force for the purpose of feeling our posi tion. Lee’s army is reported to tie moving in a southeasterly course, and there can be no doubt that the region about Culpepper and' Gordonsvibe will soon be entirely evacuated by the enemy. The New York Time*’ special cays: Marks, the deserter from Lee’s army, came down the valley by way of Staunton, Harrisonburg and Strasburr, He saw but few troops on the way. Imboden was at Strasburg. He had two brigades of cavalry and two batteries of artillery. The fight at Sulckcrsvillo was be- tween detached portions of different regi ments. The Georgians and North Carolini ans deserted, bringing with them their arms. They attacked Stuart’s cavalry at Snicker’s Feny, routed them, and succeeded in getting to Northerner’s. Marks saw abont 100 sol diers, Georgians, North Carolinians, Alabami ans and Texans, on their way home, having openly deserted. The Bine Bidge Mountains arc alive with stragglers and deserters, who have their arms with them. So numerous are they, that in traveling along the mountain tide, they have actually made paths.* The Provost Guards stationed along the route are afraid to interfere with them on account of their numbers, save when traveling alone. Advices received to-rtght from the army of the Potomac, state that artillery firing was heard early this morning, in the direction of Dumfries-supposed to have been occasioned by our cavalry engaging Stuart, who has a small force of bis cavalry in that neighbor hood. FROM CHARLESTON. What the Chattanooga Rebel Says. [Special Dispatch to Iha Chicago Tribune.) WxsmsfeTos, August 18,156b A dispatch received tiffs morning by the Government, dated 17th, from a distinguished military officer in Tennessee, stating that the Chattanooga Held of the 16th announced that the bombardment of Charleston began on the 15th, and the firieg from Gilmore’s land bat teries on Morris Island, and flromi the Moni tors, was chiefly directed against Fort Sum ter. The combined land and naval forces of the Fcdcrals seem to be engaged. The information published in the Hebd was received at Chattenooga by telegraph from Charleston, and the fight was going on when the paper went to press on Tuesday. The officer who communicates to the Govern ment the contents ot the Hebei, says the edi tor, instead of making any boasts about the result, or manifesting the least jubilant feel ing over the situation of affairs at Charles-* ton,exhibits most positive evidence of gloom. The Hebei states that the Ironsides and all the Monitors were not only In tho action but that the whole licet and a large number of trans ports were inside the bar during the engage ment. A later dispatch soys the bombardment ol Charleston was renewed on Saturday morn ing, in earnest, Irom land and sea. Gen. Gilmore opened from all his sew and irom Ms old works, and Rear Admiral D-ihl gren engaged all the Monitors. New August IS.—A Fortress Monroe letter to the JQerald eavs: “I am assured that Sumter is in a . bad plight Oar heavy and long range guns are playing havoc on its walls, ana it is stated that the side exposed to tour batteries is already breached. FROM PHILADELPHIA.

Seymour’s “ friends.” GEN.ICANBrS CIRCULAR. . New Touk, Aug. IS.— Gen. Canby has is sued an important circular defining the duties of the United States troops in this city and harbor. He says their duties arc limited to the defence of the forts and the protection of Subllc property and of the officers ol the cncral Government in the performance cf their legal duty. The duty of maintaining order and protecting the property and rights cf private individuals devolves upon the mu nicipal axd State authorities; but the troops of the United States will be held la readiness to tender any assistance that may be called for by the proper authorities, or renderedne ces-ary by the inability of the tiivil;authorlties to accomplish these.ends. If officers of the General Government by comity of the State and municipal governments, in the perform ance of their legitimate functions, are assailed by lawless violence, it will be the duty of the troops to protect them. If they arc charged with the protection of public property, public building*, or other valuable. Interests, it will be their duty to defend them to. the last extremity. If called upon by the civil authorities to aid in the maintenance of order or the enforcement of the laws, the aid will be rendered promptly, cheerfully and effi ciently. The troops that have been brought to the city,'and who may be colled upon to aid in the maintenance of order and the enforcement of the laws, must themselves set the example of orderly and soldierly conduct, and the at tention of all officers and men Is specially directed to this proclamation: GOT. SEYJIOUB’S PBOCL&MATION. Executive Chamber, Aug* 13,1803. I bare received Information that the draft is about to be made in tbc cities of Now* York and Brooklyn, and 1 understand that there is danger of disorderly and riotous attacks upon those who are engaged In executing the law of Congress. I cannot believe that any considerable num ber of citizens arc disposed to renew the shameful and sad scenes ol the past month, in which the lives ol so many, as well of the innocent as of the guilty, were destroyed. Our courts arc consigning to severe punish ment many of those who were then guilty of acts destructive to the lives and property of tleir felloW'CUlzcna. These events should teach all that real or imaginary evils can not be corrected by unlawful violence. The liberties cf onr country and the lights of our citizens can only bo preserved, by a just re • sard for legal obligations and an acquiescence In tbc decisions of judicial tribunals. While I believe it would have been a wise and humane policy to have procured a judi cial decision with regard to.tbe constitution ality of tbc conscription act at an early day, aid by a summary process, yet the failure to do so in no degree justifies any violent opposition to an act of Congress until it li set aside by the decision of judicial tri bunals. It must be obeyed like any other ait of the State or national legislatures. The artagonlstic doctrine that men may rightfully resist laws opposed to their own ideas of right or duty, has hot only led to great disorders and violence, but is one of the chief causes of tbc destruction and civil war which has wasted the blood and treasure ofourpcople. Disregard for the sacrcdness of the Constitution, Tor the majesty ot the law, and lor the decisions af the judiciary, is at this lime the greatest dinger which threatens American liberty. Trts spirit of disloyalty mast be put down. Ills inconsistent With social order and social se curity, destructive to the safety of persons and property, and subversive of the liberty of the citizen, and the freedom of the nation. These who fear that there arc designs in any quarter to overthrow the rights of tbc citizen or to obstruct the accustomed administration of our laws, or to usurp any power in viola tion of constitutional restraint?, should bear in mind that all acts of violence, ail public disorders, pave the way for these very usurp ations, ana that they will be rcgumsd with satisfaction by those who, for any came, miy wish to destroy cither the power of our na tion or State. The Constitution and statutes of the State 'and nation contain ample remedies for all wrongs which may be committed cither by rulers or citizens, and those who wish to pre serve their rights, or to puuUb offenders, whether in public or In private lllc, should themselves carefully perform their duty, ab stain irom all illegal acts, generously support the Government, ard then calmly and reso lutely claim their rights. I again repeat the warning which Igave to yon during the riotous proceedings of tho past month that lbs only opposition to the Con stitution which can be allowed Is an appeal to the Courts. 1 hereby admonish all judicial and executive officers whose duty it Is to en force the law, and preserve public order, that they take vigorous and effective measures to put down any riotous or unlawful assem blages, and if they find their power Insuffi cient for that purpose, call upon the military In tho manner pointed out by the statutes of the State. If there measures should prove insufficient, I shall then exert the full power of the State, in order that the public order may be preserved, and the nervous and prop erty of the citizens tobcfiuly protected.

TO THE CITIZENS OP NEW TOBK. 11£AI>quastxrs DzrawmEjrs or tee Ea.6t, } New York Cmr, Aujj. 17,1908. f The droll of men In this city to replenish the ranks of the army, In order to complete more speedily the suppression of the Insur rection in tho South, having, in consequence of forcible resistance to the execution of the law. been placed under my direction as com manding officer ol the forces of the United States in this military Department, I have thought It not out of place to present to you romo suggestions for your consideration as friends ot the Union and of the good order of society. * , The law under which the draft is to bo made Is for enrolling and calling out ths na tional forces. It Is founded on the principle that eveiy citizen who enjoys the protection of the Government and looks to it for the se curity of his property and his life, may be called on in seasons of great public danger to take up arms for the common defense. No political society can be held together unless this principle is acknowledged as one to which the Government may have recourse when its existence Is In peril. There is no civilized country in which it is not recog nized. : - The law authorizing the draft has been per sUteuly called u Conscription law by those who desire to make it odious and defeat Us execution. It is In no just sense a conscrip tion like that which was put In force in tho sixth year of tbe French Republic, and aban doned on the restoration of tho Bourbons, on account of Us oppressive exaction. It is a tlmplo act for enrolling and calling into tho service the annsbcarlng population of certain sges, and differs inno essential principle trom the law authorizing tho militia to bo called out, except that in tho Infer case complete organi zations ate broughtluto the field. The object of the very provisions of the law which are most beneficial to individuals, has been most jroesly perverted. If a drafted man finds it inconvenient to serve ho is allowed to famish a substitute, or to purchase his exemption Irom service by paying the smallest sum of money for which substitutes are ordinarily obtained. Both these provisions have tho game purpose—to provide for eases of hard ship ; ana if either were stricken out, those cases would be proportionably increased in number. - The draft about to bo made Is for ono-flfth part of all persons between twenty aud thirty five years of age, and of the unmarried be tween thirty-five and forty-five. Tho entire class between eighteen and thirty-five was long since drafted in the seceded States, and the draft his recently been extended to em brace nearly the whole arms-beatlng popula tion. Compared with the burden they are sustaining, ours is os nothing. The contest on our part is to defend our nationality, to uphold the institutions under the protection of which we have lived and prospered, and to preserve untarnished the proud memories of our history, brief, it is true, but full of high achievements in science, in arts, and in arms. Shall we, in such a cause, shrink from labors and sacrifices, which our misguided brethren in the seceded States are sustaining In the cause of treason and social disorganiza tion? For the honor of New York, let ns take care that the history ot this rebellion, more vast than any which ever convulsed a nation, shall contain nothing to make our children blush for the patriotism of their fathers. , • , “Whatever objection there may ho to the law authorizing the draft, whatever defects it may have, it is the law of the land, and resistance to Si is revolt against the constituted authori ties of the country. If one. law may bo set at defiance, any other may be, and tbe foun dation ot all government may be broken up. Those who, m the history of political socie ties, have been the first to set themselves np against the law, have been the surest victims of the disorder which they have created. Tho poor have a for deeper interest in -mutnirtinw the Inviolability of the law than -the rich. Property, through the means it can command,' is power.' But the only security for those who have Utile more than life and the labor of their oiya hands to protect lies in the eu* premacy of the law. On them and on those who are dependent on them, social disorder fulls with fatal effect. The constitutionality of the uw authorizing the draft has been disputed. Near the close efithe year 1814, when the country was en gaged In war with Great Britan, a similar law was recommended to Congress by the Gov ernment, to draft men to fill the ranks of the army, wnlch was gallantly battling, as our aimies are now, tor the'nation’s honor and life. Madison, one of the great expounders cl the Constitution, which he'took a promi nent part In'&aming, was President. Monroe, his successor, then acting both as Secretary cf State and secretary of War, addressed to the House of Representatives a lucid argu ment in support of the right of Congress to pass such a law. Alexander J Dallas was Secretary of. the Treasury;. Wm. Jones, Secretary of the; Navy; Return J. Meigs, Postmaster General, and Richard Rush. Attorney General. The measure could notwell have secured a higher party sanc tion. AH laws passed with the established KdsbtiVo forms are valid until declared otherwise by judicial tribunals of competent jmieoictlon. What would become of a people is critical emergencies if no law could be car ried into effect until It bad passed the ordeal of the Courts ? or if State - or municipal authorities could arrest its execution by call ing In question its conformity to the provis ions of the Constitution f The President has promptly consented to have It tested by ju dicial interpretation; bat while the car of victory Is movingon and treason Is flying be fore it, Gcd forbid that the State of New York, and its constituted authorities shoaldattcmpt to stay its progress until tho judicial process' can bo consummated. 3he accuracy of tho enrollment in the city districts has been lmpcachcd,_|hd a revision was immediately ordcicdby the President, on a tejncststatlon from the Governor of tho State. But as the men are needed lor Imme diate eervice, and as the correction of tho re turns requires time, the quota was ordered to he reduced in all the districts—in some more than half the whole amount—leaving the ac count for future adjustment. The reduction in the quota exceeds in proportion theal-. Icged esctEs of the enrollment, bo that no per sonal injustice can possibly occur. Under these circumstances, no good citizen will array himself either by word or deed agalcstthc draft. Snbmisrion to the law' In seasons of tranquCity is always the highest of political duties. But, when the existence of the Government is in peril, ha who resists Its authority commits a crime of the deepest tur pitude. Be is the voluntary - instrument of thOfce who are Becking to overthrow it, and becomes himself a public enemy. Moreover, resistance to the Government by those who aie living uuder its protection, and are in debted to il for the daily tenure of their prop erty and their lives, has not even the pallia tion under which those who lead the insur rection at the South seek., to shelter them selves; that they are octing .under color of authority derived from legltlatures or con ventions of the people in their respective States. "With us, resistance to the comiltutad . authorities is both treason and lawless vio lence; and If there are any who thus combine to re-enact tho scenes of cruelty and devasta tion by which this city has recently been dis honored, and lo defeat by force of arms the execution of the paramount law of Congress, they will be treated os enemies of the country ami of mankind.

The object appears to be for consultation on the subject cf'Prcsldent, and organizing in different* States Uio old Whig, Bell-Everctt clement. Representatives from several Slates are present, including Missouri, Kentucky, ilarj land and Wisconsin. It Is expected that a definite course will bo determined on to night.

FRO&C REW OELE^S, A New Colored Brigade—Koports of a Negro Conscription—Tiro surrender At lirashcar City—Col* X. B. Xhorpo. [Special Correspondence of N. Y. Tribune.] New York, Ang. P, 1553. Major B. Bush Plumley, of the Revenue, Department, formerly of the staff of General Fitment, has received orders to organize a brigade of colored volunteers for three years’ teivlce. He estimates the time required for the fulfillment of this duty at thirty dtys. Under bis management one of the sixty aiy regiments was recruited in sixty hours. Col. P. F. Maccosos has tendered his services in the organization of the command, and willsn perlntend the enrollment. The commissioned officers of the brigade will bo white men; the non- commissioned may bo colored. The ne groes may be either bond or tree. The first regiment will be commanded by a son of Gen. Plumley, now Colonel of the (sth Louisiana, a home-guard regiment. Lfeut. Geo. H. Hangs, the able, energetic and efficient Superintend ent of contrabands, will weir the eagles of the .second. A rumor has obtained general circulation that a sweeping conscription of negroes will take place at on early day. The report doubt less arose from the following facts: Com plaints have daily been made that in the dis tricts excepted by the President’s Proclama tion there were thousands of contrabands who were becoming demoralized audvagraats. On 'Wednesday last it was determined to test the tmfh of the statement, so far os New Orleans was concerned. Accordingly, the police were directed to arrest all colored men found in the street without passes. It is stated that, in their eagerness to dispose of the unfortu nates for-the war, the police officers not nn frcquently entered private dwellings and ab ducted the occupants. Pour hundred men were -thus collected in one evening, three fourths of whom were found to be self-sup' porting. Nearly one Jhundred voluntarily enrolled themselves, and the remainder were discharged- The necessity of a general im pressment of the colored population is not appreciated by the Commanding General. In tikis brigade, at least, there will be no con scripts. By personal appeals to the negroes, Gen eral Pluraley raised five hundred men In four days.- He is devoted to -the cause, and Inde fatigable In his labors. He expects that a large proportion of the colored sixty day regi ments wul volunteer for the war under his leadership—the home-guard brigade having received orders to disband. The 49th Massachusetts are under orders for Boston, by sea. The 47th sailed for St. Louis on Wednesday evening. The 12£h Maine and 31th Connecticut have been dis patched to Ship Island. . The C&st-day proclamation of President Lin coln was very generally observed by the loyal citizens of New Orleans. \ .Services were held in the principal churches, and many places of business were closed. Prom trustworthy sources I learn that CoL T. B. Thorpe, City Surveyor, who received his appointment from Gen. -Butler, this week tendered Ids resignation to the Mayor, who had no authority to receive it. On learning this fact, Col. Thorpe withdrew his resigna tion, whereupon he was immediately dis charged by the Mayor, who took the respon- Blbmty to dispense with his services, aud ap point as his successor Mr. Peter Rose. The latter gentleman is & Scotchman by birth, a builder,, and a member of thO-Bncean of Streets and Landings. FROM MEXICO. taiporfant Aspects of her Affairs San Francisco, Aug.

DEFEAT ’OF THE SIOUX-CLOSE OF THE WAR. 6t. Paul Press, 15th] TIIS BATTLE OP THE 810 MOLD'D. On tho 24ih of July, about one o’clock, as the column was moving along the western base of a hill or ridge of the Cotean Missouri, scouts who were In the advance returned, with the report that we wereintheimmedlito vicinity of a large camp of Indians. Other scouts came who had seen the Indl ins and be- lieved them to he preparing in great numbers to engage us—that they wera then collecting In the rocky ravines behind the ridges of the great hill. Soon the Indians were seen on the Big Mound, the highest peak of the hilL The train was turned off to tho right a little way and corralled on a salt lake. Details of men were made to throw up en trenchments. so that a small number of men could defend tho train and comp while the main force should be engaged elsewhere. The camp wa* encircled by several regiments, with the artillery placed ac intervals between. The Big Mound was directly east ol camp a mile and a quarter distant. A succession of hills,' or the broken aide of the big hill, rising ftom the camp to the BlgMound. There was a ravine directly eaat.of camp, 'which extended nearly to tho Big Mound. The 6th regiment was placed on the north side of the corral, Us left resting on the lake; the 10th ■ regiment next to the 6th fronting north east and to the Uft of the ravine; the 7lh regiment on the right of the 10th, front ing cast and southeast of the ravine; the cav alry 'on the south side of the camp with its right flank on the lake. These dispositions had hardly been made before the report of Arc arms was heard on the hill directly in.front of the 7th regiment. Some of the scouts had gone part way up the bill, and were talking with the Indians. Dr. TVelscr, surgeon of the Mounted Rangers, joined them and shook hands with one or two Indians whom he had probably known at Sha kopec. One Indian advanced and shot him through the heart. Ho fell and died without speakings word. The scouts flred and the Indians fell hack behind the ridge, returning the Are, one shot takic-g effect upon semi Solon Stevens of Mankato. It proved to be but a slight wound in the hip. The ball had first passed through his rubber blanket which was rolled up on bis saddle. An ambulance was promptly sent oat, which met the body of Dr. TVeher, being brought- in on a horse. The first battalion of cavalry—Captains Taylor, 'Wilson, and Acderaon’s companies— was promptly ordered to the scone ot Dr. Weiser’s death, where the scouts were'skir mishing with the Indians. They fraud the ground so broken that they dismounted and sent thdr hordes back to camp. Major Brad ley, with Captains Stevens and CrUflUan’s companies, of the Seventh, were ordered to the support of the cavalry. The General, with a sln-pouuder, advanced to a hill on tbe left of tic ravine and began to shell the In dians at the head of tbe ravine and about the Big Mound. Capt. Edgerton’a company, of the Tenth, supported the sixpauuder. Tbe 6th regiment was deployed on the foot lipls In front of Us line, to the north and north-east of camp, Capt.. Bank’s company of the 7IU, on the right ot the Cth regiment. Lieut. Col. Marshall, with the remaining five companies of the 7th regiment, Captains Kennedy, WUllston, Hall, Carter, and Arnold, advanced up the ravine to word the Big Mound, and deployed on the left of the dis mounted cavalry and Major Bradley’s lino. The artillery under tbc immediate direction of the General, drove the Indians out from the head of the ravine and from about the Big Mound, and into the broken ridges and ravines southward. They had come from that quarter, their comp being .found around the hill about five miles from our camp. The line of tbc Tib regiment and the three companies of cavalry named, advanced steadi ly and rapidly, pouring a constant fire into the Indians, which reached them before their shorter range guns could have any effect on oar troops. The left of tie 7th crossed the summit range just to the right of the mound, and flanking the right of the Indians, swept around to the southward and pursued the In to and through the ridges ana ravines on the cost ot the range, while Major Bradley and Captains Taylor and Anderson pressed them hotly on the west side. Capt. "Wilson of the cavalry crossed to the right of the mound, and pursued some Indians that separated from the main body and retreated more directly eastward. The Indians were thus pursued some three or four miles, and until they were completely dislodged and driven from the hills to a broad plain southward. They would try to hold ridge otter ridge, and to cover themselves la the ravines, bat the better weapons in the hands of the whites were too much for them. They were sparing of ammunition, and proba bly not over half aad fire-arms. Their num ber exceed 1,000 warriors. As they were precipitately retreating down the ravines toward the plain, after the last stand, two companies of cavalry, Capt. Aus tin’s andLleut. Batten’s, under the Immediate command of Col McPhail, took the advance and charged the Indians, doing execution. CorporalHadcp was shot in the shoulder by an Indian which ho was riding on to. Col. McPhail thrust bis sabre through the Indian. It was hero that a stroke of lightning killed private John Murphy of Co. B, and bis horse, and stunned another, cavalryman. Colonel McPhail’a grasp was loosened on bis awordby the shock. Ho thought a shell bad fallen among them. This momentarily cheeked the charge and. rendered it less effective, the In dians getting out on the plain where their im mense numbers deterred any farther charge until the cavalry could be reinforced. Lieut. Col. Marshall had left his line for a moment and, taking care of Col. McPhall’s right flank, charged down the hill with the rangers. In on effort to cut off some Indiana to the right he got Into rather close quarters with some of them. The thunder-stroke cheeked the cavalrymen that be thought wore following him in the dash. He wheeled bis horse in time to. avoid a single-handed en counter with a dozen warriors. While the dismounted companions of cav alry were getting their horses, from, camp, and Captains Rubles, Duvys and Lieut, John* son’s companies, that had been on the right of the hill with Major Bradley, were being form i ed for the pursuit, the Indiana had got three orfourmuea away. Their families had been staitedahead, and the warriors were covering the rear of tho train. The cavalry pursued, and the 7th regiment followed on, Xleuteu ant 'Wbipplo’s section of the battery was sent forward, and company B, of the 10th, to sup port it. The cavalry reached the Indians be fore dark, and made five successive charges on their rear, killing a great number. The bat tery and the 7th regiment were not up In time to take a hand. , . , . _ . , The Indians fought desperately. One stal wart warrior, with aa American flag wrapped around him theatrically, fired twice while tho cavalry were within twenty rods charging up on him, his balls taking effect in the overcoats and saddle of private Green, and rubber blan ket of Carlson, of company F. The Indian eot the powder down but not tho bail for the third load, which he discharged at the breast of Aichy McNeo of company P, of coarse without effect. He then dabbed his gun and struck Carlson, nearly unhorsing mm. A . dozen carbine bails were put into, and then he bad to be sabred to finish him. 7 The cavalry boys took twenty-one scalps In * CoLMcPhall had told them that it was very barbarous to take scalps, but that ho wouldn’t believe any man had killed an Indian unless he showed the hair, and enough of It so that two locks couldn’t be taken from the same head. The trail of the Indians was strewed with tons of dried buffalo meat, pemmican, robes, and undressed bnffido skins, beside camp fur niture. It was a wild ffight, In which they abandoned everything that impeded them. Much of this stuff they left In camp.. THE BATTLE. OF BEAD BUFFALO LAKE. Camp was moved on the 25th three miles, On to a great hill where a pond, of fresh water and grass was found. Lieut. Freeman’s, and Murphy’s and Stark’s bodies were buried at Camp Sibley, below the .Mil; Dr. 1X61361*6 woe buried at Camp Whitney, on he hill. The march was resumed on the 26th, and Dead Buffalo Lake reached about noon. The Indians were seen in tho distance advancing towards us. It was not known that there was any good camping place within reach that day ahead, and it was decided to go into camp on the lake. Lieut. Whipple’s 6 pounders were advanced to a lull half a mile in advance, towards the Indians, and the 6th regiment was deployed forward to support tho battery and engage the Indians, The Indians circled around, got on the high knolls and ridges and took observations, bat seemed indisposed to pitch in. The artillery shelled them w hen they ventured near enough, and the skirmishers gave them shots when they approached anywhere near camp. Thus seme hours passed without the In dians developing their purpose. A largo por tion ot them kept out of sight. Finally about three o’clock, a mounted force of Indians suddenly dashed in on the north side of the camp, where mules hod been turned out to graze, and where teamsters were getting* grass. The Indians had almost reached them when Capt. "Wilson’s and Davey’a companies of cavalry—the latter under Lieut. Kidder—put ting their horses to the jump, dashed upon the Indians, and so dismayed them that they wheeled their ponies to escape, bat not In time to escape the carbine shots, followed by the revolver and eabre, that left a goodly num ber of the red devils en the field. Some of the scouts did good service in this charge. One wounded Indian tried to escape by seizing bis horse’s toil; but, unfortunately for him, the pony got a shot in the shoulder. John Platt, of Go, L, dashed up to finish the Indian with his revolver, but it didn’t go off, and before he could check his horse, he was upon the Indian, who had reserved a shot in his gun, which he fired into the thigh and bowels of poor Platt, giving him his death wound. Joe Campbell, one of the scouts, tried to rave Platt, but it was too late, Camp bell’s shot, fired at the same iastant that tho Indian fired the total shot at Platt, went through the vitals of the savage, and finished him. Platt’s comrades, exasperated at his mortal wound, tore the Indian’s scalp from his heed before.he was dead. A part of the 6th regiment, under Major McLaren, had returned to camp, and was on their color line, on the side where the Indians made the dash. They promptly advanced to the support of the cavalry, and took a hand in. Thus the 6:h, among the Infantry regi ments, ou this day did the fighting. The cav alry and artillery, In this, as In the previous and Bubseqnent engagement, had always their foil share of work. The Indians ap peared on the south side of the camp, out of rouge, hut made no farther attack. THE BATTLE OF 3TOXF LAKE. The march was resumed on the 27th, and the trail, still marked by robes and other art!* dee, was followed toward the Missouri River. TV e camped after a inarch of nearly twenty miles, on a small lake half a mile long and twenty rods wide. On tbe morning of the 2Slh, just as the rear cf tbe train was tiling around the south end of the lake, the advance being nearly to the top of a long hill that we were ascending, the Indians suddenly made their appearance In front and on the flanks, rapidly circling a/onnd to the rear. They were in Immense numbers, seemingly dU mounted. • Major Jo. Brown, the guide, and some of the scouts, who were In advance, narrowly escaped being gobbled up. The 10th regi ment, CoL Baker, which was In the advance, promptly and gallantly met the attack in front, which was the first demonstration of thclndians. TliearliUcry was quickly brought into play, and the savages drew back to a safe distance. CoL Crooks, with the 6th regi ment, oa the right flank, held them at bay and effectually guarded the train, while the cavalry on the left and 7th regiment and cav alry in the rear presented an unassailable line. The Indians get partly under cover of broken •ground at the south end of the lake, but were soon dislodged by the Are of Lleat. Western’s section of tnc battery and a line of skirmish ers of the 7th. One shot from an Indian, evi dently aimed at Col. Marshal), while ho was locating a howitzer, struck the ground at his feet. The most determined effort, however, to make a breach, was in front, and was fairly resisted by the lOtli regiment, so that It had 'its day of lighting. The Indians, os they came oa at first, were beard to say, “It is too late, it is too late,” evidentlyiavlcgcrpected to. surprise us in camp.. Ano her Indian answered, “wo must light for our children.’ 5 After Tecozmoltering all sides of the train and Audit git girt with a wall of Are, they seemed to think it was no use to make an as sault. After seeing that the proper disposi tions had been made for guarding the tram the General ordered the column to move forward, regardless of the Indians. The Indians seeing our purpose to press, on towards their, fam ilies, quickly withdrew, tbc whole demonstra tion no** delaying the march over two hours. Gen. Sibley, Major Brown and others, esti mated the number of Indians this day at over two thousand. In the battle of Big Mound were all the lower Indians, the Slsictoaas, and port of the Yinlitonais. In the last days light, that of Stony Lake, they hadbeen rein forced by another camp cf Tanktosais and eomeTetons from the west side of the Missouri River. Wc captured a Teton boy,BwUo had no gun, and was subsequently released at tbe Missouri River. This Teton and an old squaw were the only prisoners taken in battle or near a battle. The supplications for life of . the wretches when they had flred their last shot, were generally met by a sabre throsi . that finished them. No more Indians were encountered until the banks of the Missouri were reachedthe , morning of the 29th. Tbc Indians had made good use of the night, and got their families and ponies over. Their wagons, to the num ber of over one hundred, and a remnant of their plunder, that hod not been strewn along the route of their flight, was left on the east bank of the river. Themselves covered the bluffs on the west side. The tith regiment, then In the advance, ad* vanccd, deployed as skirmishers through the broods a mile and a half to the river. As they -were starting to return a heavy volley that come from the high grass on the opposite hack Icll harmless about them or short of them. They stopped a moment to return it, but the distance was too great for effect. While Col. Crooks was at the river the General sent an order by Lieut. Beevor, Aid* de-Camp, While returning with an answer, Lieut. Becrcr mistook a trail that led down the river, where his body was founduext dsypicrccd by three arrows and a balk Ho had also wounds from a tomahawk on his head. His horse lay near him. Two pools of blood twenty paces from his body Indicated that two of his murderers had paid dearly for his life. On the same trail was found the body of private Nicholas Miller, of Company £, Oth Regiment, who had. made the same mistake in taking the traE that Bcever had. Two days were passed In camp at the mouth of Apple Creek, on the Missouri, opposite Burnt Boot Island, and then the homeward march was resumed. The expedition had but fifteen’ days rations, nine or ten of which would be consumed in returning to Camp At chison. It would take two‘or three days to cross the Missouri, so that all the surplus would have been consumed in crossing and rccwEsisg the river. The animals were completely worn down. Over twelve miles a day could not be made on the scanty feed they were getting. It would, therefore have been useless to go further. Much had been accomplished.- Forty four bodies of warriors hud been found, many more carried off and concealed. The season’s, supplies of meat and clothing material, and their wagons destroyed. The howllaps of the squaws that came across the river told the tale of their misery and despair. It Gen. Sully shall arrive and take up the pursuit, their destruction can be rendered complete. gzst. snJLsr’s ohdeb. The following order was read on dress pa rade on the evening of July Slst: Hbadquabtebs, Disinter 07 Mikkssota, 1 DETAimIEKT OP she Northwest, V Camp SoAuaursu, July 81,1863.) QESUBAL ORDER KO, 51—IN THE KItLD. To the Officers and Soldiers of the Expeditionary forces Is camp: It is proper for the Brigadier General command ing to announce to you that the march to tho West and South Is completed, and that on to-morrow the column will move -homewards, to discharge such other duties connected with the objects of the expedition, on the way, as may from time to time present themselves, _ „ , In making this announcement, Gen. Sibley ex presses also his high gratification that the cam paign has been a complete success. The design of tao Government In chastising tho savages, and thereby preventing for the future the raids upon the frontier, has been accomplished- You have routed the miscreants who murdered oar people last year, banded as they were with the powerful Upper Sioux, to the number of nearly 2,000 war riors, In three successful engagements with heavy loss, and driven them in confusion and dismay across the Missouri River, leaving behind them all their vehicles, provisions, and shin * designed for clothing, which have been destroyed. Yorty-fonr bodies of warriors have been found, and many others concealed or token away, according to the custom of these savages, so that it is certain they lost in killed and wounded not less than from 120 to ISO men. All this has been accomplished with the compar atively trlfiiogloes on onr part of three killed and as many wounded. Yon have marched nearly GCO miles freon St. Paul, and the powerful bands of tho Dakotas who have hitherto acid undisputed pos session of the great prairie, have succumbed to your valor ana discipline and sought safety In flight. The intense heat and drought have caused much goffering, which yon hare endured without a murmur. The companies of thc6th, 3th, oth and JOth regiments of Minnesota Volunteers, and of the Ist regiment HfrmcsotaMounted Bangers and tho scouts of the battery have amply sustained the reputation of tho State by their bravery aud endu rance amidst unknown dangers and great hard ships. Each has had opportunity to distinguish itself against a foe at least equal in numbers to Ueelf. . It would be a gratification if ibeso remorseless savages could have been pursued and lltcraily ex tirpated, for their crimes acd barbarities merited such a fulCmeasure of punishment; but men ana animals me alike exhausted after so long aMg. aud a further pursuit would only be faille ana hopeless. The military results of the campaign have been completely accomplished, for the sav ages have not only been destroyed ln great num bers. aud their main strength broken, but their niD«pectsfor the future are hopeless indeed, for they can scarcely escape starvation during the ap- Broaching winter. It la peculiarly satisfying to the Brigadier Gene ral commanding, to know that the tremendous fa tigues and manifold dangers of the expedition, thus for, have entailed so email a lose ot tie in his NUMBER 41. command. A less carefcl policy than thrf adopted might have effected th<r destruction of more or tho enemy, hut that could only have been dona by a proportional exposure on our part, and the enure ‘ quest loss of many mote Uvea, bringing sorrow and mourning to oar own homes. Let ns. thure- Ibro, retain thanks to a mercifbl God for his mani fest interposition In our favor, and for tbo success attendant npon our efforts to secure peace to the borders of our own State, and cf our- neighbors and Glenda in Batotah Territory, and as wo pro ceed on onr march towards those most near and desr to ns. let ns be prepared to discharge other duties which may ho imposed upon ua daring our journey, with cheerful and willing hearts. To tho regimental and company officers of toe command, tho Brigadier General commanding ten ders bis warmest thanks for their co operation and aid on every occasion during tho progress of tbecolnnjn through tho heart of an unknownre gion, Inhabited by a subtle and merciless foe. For tho friends and Camillas of ourfallcn com rades we hare our wannest sympathies to oner in their bereavement.
