Blunt, the fighting. General, has ndded
another to his long list of victories, and
lids time has achieved a success of which
Buy General in tho field might bo proud.
(Since the battle ol Honey Springe, Blunt,
With his little bond of 4,500 men, has been
Sna precarious situation, where seeming
annihilation stared him in the face. The
Rebels outnumbered him nearly three to
one. An attack threatened defeat, and to
lUtcmpt a retreat seemed the signal lor an
titter rout. In the foce of such heavy odds,
fcowever, Blunt made the attack with such
fury that the rebel hordes fled inconti*
Uently. Blunt pursued them a hundred
tnilcs, burning their commissary depot,
fort Smith is the nest point of attack, and
4ro may confidently expect the immediate
downfall of that rebel stronghold, and the
complete riddance pi the Indian Territory |

health and in fine spirits. About twelve
o’clock, a brass band called to serenade the
doctor, and about the same time he was
called awav to see a patient. After the doc

Into the room to hoar the music, and then
sat down at the window. When the hand
had finished playing, her niece turned to
sptnk to her, and observed something unusu

the window and threw herself upon the bed.
Her niece approached her and asked her
whether she was suffering, and she. replied,
“vtry severely.” A mocscuffer was at onco
dispatched for the doctor, who was soon at
her tide, but he found her insensible, and she,
expired in ft few minutes. Her death was
caused by apoplexy.— TUOburgh Gaxtte*

A New Rebel Battery opens
from Sullivan's Island.
Terrific Engagement between

Spaulding arrived at 0. o'clock last evening
from off Charleston. . Bho left Morris Island
Monday last. Bho reports that a severe storm
bad prevailed there for ccroral days, making
It very rough where our fleet lay, and entirely
a topping all naval operations.
New Tore, Bept. 6.—A Moiris Island lettar
of September lit, to the JleralS, says:
“For two or three days p&at, a sew rebel
battery on Soil!van's Island has been making
fruitless efforts to annoy onr men In. the ad
vanced trenches. Tne calibre of the gun em
ployed Is not certainly known, bnt supposed
to bo one of the Xl-Ineb gun# tiken from the
Keokuk. Tbo tiring ofihe gon Is very good,
except in one rather important pat tlculax, its
.range being short, and only at long intervals

thrown in thus for have been solid shot, and
hare done no damage, other than to sand hills
which bate been hit. The grwt majority fall
into the water outside the beach, and expend
their force on the curling surf
“Four monitors, the Faasa'.c, Pataptco,
Nahant and Montauk, came in yesterday
afternoon, and engaged Fort Moultrie and
the batteries on Sullivan's Island, firing oc
casional shot at Sumter and Wagner. The
engagement commenced about half-past
three o’clock and continued two hoars. The
fire was maintained with great intensity,
particularly on the rebel side.. The firing
. from Moultrie and Battery Bee was terrific.
Their heavy guns rattled off, like a snare
'drum in tattoo, tho Vater about the monitors
: Jetting up in all directions. Many shots
struck the monitors,. but did little damage.
The heavy rifle and 15-inch shells of the Iron
sides burst with effect over and in Moultrie,
and sent the earth whirling in all directions.
Wagner was repeatedly struck by the explod
ing shells and somewhat damaged. She fired
but few shots during the contest at the mon
itors. Battery Gregg was exceedingly ac
tive. Her heavy guns were In play, from the
first'to tlie last of the engagement, and made
some excellent shots. The monitors* shells
went wiliPy on all sides, and had no effect in
slierclng her guns. ' Sumter was struck
several times by rifle shells from the Passaic
and Patapseo, but besides detaching masses
oflocae masonry, it did no iurtherdamage I

they caist
“.After two or three hours* fighting the
monitors withdrew. The object of the st
uck has not been developed.
“Some days slnco the enemy made. a sys
tematic effort' to blow up and destroy the
gunboats ; at Stono Inlet, by means of torpe
does. For innately no serious damage was
inflicted on any of the vessels by these Infer
nal machines, but the escape was quite nar
row enough for comfort, A torpedo exploded
a little astern of the Pawnee, and blew her
launch, which was towing astern, to frag
tents. A few moments later s tremendous I
explosion occurred on board the Kawanee, &
few rods below the Pawnee, occasioned by
another ioipsdo rent down at the same time.
From facts since developed, it is certain that |
the rebels sent down on that night at least
ten of these inventions. Three or four
exploded, and .four !wero picked up. One
drifted through the fleet of transports and up
Folly river, and exploded under the bowsol

moment, but a want ofirater will compel her
to surrender. The dead lie soth'ckly around

a very beautiful and intelligent lookingyoung
lady, who drew the admiring gaze of many
eyes, particularly eyes masculine, always on
the lookout fer pretty feminine faces. During
the intermission at noon, a spnica young
minister stepped up to the presiding elder
and said, with an air of secresy:
“Did you observe tho young lady who sat
by the first pUUr on the left’?**
‘ “Yes,” arid the elder, “what of her?”
“ Why, ” said the young man, “I feellm
pressed that the Lord desires me to take that
lady tor a wife. 1 thick she' would moke a
good companion'and helpmate in the work of
the ministry.”
~ The elder, as a good Christian ought, had
nothttirto object.
But 5 s few moments another candidate
for ministerial efforts and honors, and for the
name of husband, came confidentially to
make known a like Impression regarding the
same Identical youcg lady.
“You had better wait a whHe. It is not
best to behasty in determining the source of
Eueb impressions,” said the prudent elder.
And he sold well; for hardly were the steps
of the second youth cold at his aide, ere a
third approached with the same story; and
whHe the worthy confident still marvelled, a
fourth drew near with the question—
“ Did you. notice the flue, noble-looking
won<an on your left?”
“Yes,” cried the swelling elder. ..
“ Well, sir.’t went on. the fourth victim of
that unconscious gtrl, “it Is strongly borne
Inuronmy mind that It is .the will of. the
Lord that I should make proposals of marriage
to that lady. He has impressed me that she
Is to be my wife”
Tho elder could bold In no longer.
