Our correspondence from the Army of
the Cumberland, published on the second
yiage of this issue is of unusual interest and
contains the latest news that has yet been
published. Since the great battle of Sat
urday and Sunday the rebels have been
twice repulsed in their efforts to capture
Chattanooga, and at last accounts dared
pot attack again. ' Our dispatches place
the Union loss in killed, wounded and miss
ing at 18,800 and the rebel loss at 20,000.

official list of casu&lties in the 104 th, 100 th,

Our gunboats off the Texas coast are
doing a good work in the capture of pi
rates and the destruction of rebel steamers.
The news from Mexico is of deep in
terest. The Juarez Cabinet is fully organ
ized, and the Mexicans arc rapidly organ
izing upon a war footing to expel the
French invaders.
Another terrible steamboat disaster has
occurred upon the Mississippi, in the burn
ing of the steamer Robert Campbell, Jr.,
by which twenty-three lives were lost.
The destruction of this boat is another
convincing proof of the existence of a
gang of rebel incendiaries who have form
ed a plot to destroy the Western steamers.
The matter demands the instant attention
of the Government. No means should be
spared to ferret out the villains engagedin
this hellish work of destruction, and to
visit them with a terrible vengeance.
The news from Hosecrans army 1 is from
yebel sources as well as through our own
channels. Both announce the situation
Unchanged, with the two armies in dose
proximity, and preparing for warm work.
A later dispatch announces rebel scouting
operations, which, to some degree, threat
en our communications. An appalling
-disaster had befallen our ammunition

news from Knoxville to yesterday an
nounces no change in that quarter.

[From our own Correspondent!
Decatcb, Oct 2,15C3,
An informal meeting of the members of the
State Agricultural Society, in attendance here

Xjovemroent to the several States, for tnepor
pose of founding and endowing such Schools
of Agriculture and the Mechanic Art, as the
States may put in operation or designate, for
the special education cf the young firmer
and artisan. The amount of land donated to
this State is 480.000 acres, in the ratio of
80,000 acres to each Senator and Representa

Their magnificent Reception.
Speeches of Major Opdjke and
Admiral lisovsky,
Preliminary to the reception of the officers
of the fleet in the city, it was arranged that
the Joint Committee ox the Common Coun
cil having the matter in charge should pro
ceed to the Alexander Nevsky, the flag-ship
of the squadron, and present to Admiral
Lisovsky an engrossed copy of the resolutions
of the two Boards, tendering the hospitalities
of the City to himself and his fellow officers.
Accordingly, at 11 o’clock, the Committee,
consisting et Aldermen Froment, Farley, and
Ball, ana Councilmen Keenan, McConnell,
and Murray, together with the members of
the Press and some half dozen invited guests,
embarked on board the U cited States revenue
steamer Addison F. Andrews, at the foot ot
'Whitehall street, and steamed out into the
haibor. •
After passing seme two miles' down the
bay. the steamer turned about and sailed up
t* the Russian fleet, which lies at anchor in
the North River, passing on the way the
three British men-of-war, which ore anchored
at some distance astern.of the Russian ves
sels. The crew of each vessel on the Russian
fleet mounted the rigging os the Andrews
steamed past, and expressed their welcome in
prolonged cheers. After sailing around the
northernmost vessel of the fleet, the An
drews turned about and steamed slowly down
to the Alexander Nevsky while the band
played “ God Save the Czar.” As the party
came abreast of the flagship, Capt. Faunce
hailed the officer at the gang way and inform
ed him that the representatives of the City
Government were on board and awaited the
pleasure of the Russian Admiral in less
than five minutes a half-dozen or more boats
from the flagbhlp were alongside of the An
drews to convey the party on board.' Arriving
on thu deck cf the Alexander Nevsky, they
found the officers of the entire fleet, with
Bear-Akmlr&l Lisovsky at Ihdr head, a wait
ing their reception, dressed in full uniform.
Wnile the committee were comlo? on board
the Russian band plaved “ Yankee Doodle,”
which, together with other American airs,
was repeated at intervals during their stay.
The bay cf New York his witnessed a great
many salutes in times past, bat never until
yesterday did it comprehend the meaning of
aßnsslan royal samte.- It was a roaring,
thundering, eanhsh&Mng demonstration, em
blematic of the outspoken voice of Imperial
Russia. After the first gun, those of the com
mittee who were inclined to smile at the Ad
mirals apprehensions of accident from the
salute felt the propriety of his caution. • The
opening gun was fired by the flagship, and
was instantly responded to by every member
of the fleet, and the volley repeated in rapid
succession until each vessel had fired twenty
cne guns—the number required by the royal
After the thundering tones of the royal
salute had died away. Admiral Lisovsky in
vited the company*into his cabin, where the
principal officers of the fleet were presented
in turn to the different members of the Com
Alderman Froment here presented the Ad
miral with a copy of the resolutions beauti
fully engrossed on parchment.
Admiral lisovsky replied as follows:
Qpilumik: The present occasion offers me an
other confirmation of what has just been express
ed by the or your Board. In
coming.here through the Sound, everywhere on
our passage, at every villa, every
cottage,we received the heartiest welcome. There
fore.the words I have the honor to hear from you
now had been already expressed to me on maoy
occasions. Notwithstanding this, however, it is
one of the greatest of pleasures tome privately to
receive the exproeelon* 70a bars made on behalf
of yourselves, your city, and ofthepcopleofyour
great nation.
The tender of the hospitality of your eity,
gentlemen, certainly will produce an equal feeling
of pood will and sympathy in my own country. I
believe it will surpass in its effects any evidence
heretofore given of the regard for our nation it
has been my good fortune to share here. Ido
not consider this token of your hospitality (refer
ringlo the engrossed resolutions) as belonging to
me privately. I will consider It my duly tofor
ward it to my Government, to show the great
sympathy wc enjoy here—to show the heartiness
of our welcome here. lam perfectly convinced
that the words I am speaking are equally felt by
my officers and my crews, and by the great Rus
sian nation.
Wine was then introduced, and the Admi
ral proposed the health of the President of
the United States, “to whom you have in
trusted the future of your noble country.
—he has, indeed, an admirable lame for any
ffi«n to possess—the fame of being the most
honest of men.” He remarked thnt the
trust to the President must be accompanied
by a salute, and after giving orders lor the
email beats to move away, be again proposed
“ the health ol the President—his success
aid prosperity.” As the company drank to
the toast, the Alexander Nevsky boomed
forth a Federal salute ol thirteen guns.
Ms procession.
The troops were in high spirits and their*
beet attire and array, the most brilliant ot Oc
tober fiuns gleaming from their polished arms
and trappings.. All along Twenty-third street
the houses were decked with flogs, the side
walks packed with eager multitudes, and
doorways, windows, and balconies blooming
with ladies end children in gala attire.
Although hours beyond the appointed time
rolled away, and the guests did not yet ap
pear, this concourse patiently awaited their
coming, and at length, when the boat that
conveyed them hove in eight, rent the air
with their clamorous home.
As the party lauded, asauadof thelth ar
tillery, by direction of Brigadier General
Yates, fired a grand salute, and when they
bad entered the carriages waiting to receive
them, and drove off to the head of the line,
the troops drawn up on cither side of the way,
presented arms, and their splendid bands
struck up the national airs of Russia and
From Canal street down, the tide of human
wonderment had set in stronger and stronger,
and eddied In variegated billows around the
corners of every side street and at the brink
of every sidewalk, sweeping wildly along the
bases of the massive buildings that line our
great thoroughfare, until at the Park it gath
ered into one mighty overspreading flood
which filled the great square and overflowed
it, on all sides, ter and near, shouting, cheer
ing, and laughing aloud at Its own boister
onsness with the ‘*anerithmon gelasmoa” or
“nnrythmedlaughter” of Homer’s epic de
scription of the billows of the sea. Here all
observation of individual and particular pecu
liarities was lost In the immense entsmVU of a
vast populace already imbned with military
ideas, ripe for tar more than European pomp
and pageantry and immensely conscious of
ibe import of the day’s transactions. Admi
ral llfiovEky looked positively bewil
dered, and the Czar himself had he
been present, could scarcely. have, felt less.
Huzzaing from thousands of throats, the
throng rushing to get nearer City Hall, the
tramping and prancing of cavalry squadrons,
the clockwork evolutions of long lines oi
blue and baton-armed policeman, the dense
cloud of dust, and through it the waving of
bannersand the thundering boom of cannon,
tainting the arrival ol the municipal Palace,
all combined in a whirl of stirring life and in
cident rarely witnessed since the days of the
tumultuous festivals that intoxicated the
plebs of the Roman forum.
As the last of the military departed, the
official party "were escorted to thehall and xn>
btairs to the Governor's room, where around
a table simply arranged in the centre of the
apartment, they were disposed to the "best ad
vantage, spectators standing aloof irom the
crcnp and lining the edges of the room. Ap
proaching Admiral Llsovski, who stood In
front of, and Mayor Opdykc, who had his
station behind the tablelAlderman Froment,
on behalf of Alderman Farley, the Chairman
of the Committee, with great dignity of man

bis fleet a formal reception and the hospitali
ties of the city of New York, and assigning
the expression of that intent now to Bis
He nor the Major.
Mayor Opdyke at once, with peculiar grace
and impressiveness, and amid profound si
lence, addressed the Admiral as follows:
Anvaun Lzsovskt: It affords me great pleas
ure to receive yon and your brother officers of the
Russian fleet os tho honored guests of this city.

Admiral Lisovsky, with marked feeling, re*
died, in English, as follows;

This ceremony terminated, a general hand
shaking with citizens took place, and the Ad
miral verygr&ciously had a good word for all
comers. Tnc cntlregrcup,headed bythe Ad
miral, then stepped oat upon the balcony to
contemplate fora moment the crowd below,
now amounting to some ten thousand per
sons. Their appearance was immediately
hailed with a storm of cheers, which they
warmly acknowledged. After once again
withdrawing to the room, they a second time
occupied tne balcony, this time including
cone bnt thelr.own circle, and with one ac
cord gave in their tom three hearty
huzzas to the people. This compliment was
iu.u.edialdy followed by a timely response
by Mr. D. Clark, of Vermont, who, seizing
Die ecafi of the Russian flag depending from
the balcbny, and waving the ensign over his
his head, shouted, “Three checis for the
Russian Emperor and his officers, the friends
of An erica!” & call that was replied to with
successive torrents of cheering, which rolled
above even the din of Broad way, like “deep
arsweiirg unto deep.” After this, the Ad
miral was escorted to his carriage, and in
company with Messrs. Farley, Froment
aid Boole, rode down to Tier No.
1, North River, and there re-em
borked in his own gig and returned
to Ms vessel amid the continuous huz
zaing of the crowds that lined the shore and
that even hung around him in yawls and
skiffs on the water. The other officers sepa
rated in different parties, and were handsome
ly entertained during the evening by various
private citizens. They certainly were left no*
cause to complain that the night did not keep
pace with the hospitalities ol the day. Among
the recipients of this evening courtesy was
one captain of the fleet who was particularly
noticed. Although comparatively young in
yeats, he was literally laden with the honors
of his profession. On his breast were sus
pended, side by side, the decorations of
St. Anne, St. George and Vladimir,
with gold and silver medals won at Sinope
and Sebastopol—all testimonies to his per
sonal worth and valor, as well os skill, in his
eeptclal walk of the Imperial service. Seve
ral—in fact, nearly all of the suite—were deco
rated, some of them twice and thrice. One
of these—a bright, joyous, enterprising per
son-had left the group ol officers when they
entered the City Halt, and had gone ont
alone among the crowd, who immediately
surrounded Mm with striking proof of
good will and the highest domestic testimo
ny ot popular favor, and made a call lor “A
speech! a speech!” “Ah!” he said, with a
sigh, ‘T speak little English with my tongue,
bnt my heart speak to you Americans men
ail the time!” throwing great emphasis into
the last words. Juat then Inspector Leonard
informed him that his comrades waited for
him in the Hall, and he turned away with ap
parent regret, hurrahs from a thousand
throats accompanying him.
The sun never shone in a clearer
atmosphere, and a single breeze, sufficient to
keep all cool on board the myriad
craft in New York Bay and the Hudson
River. As fhr as the eye could reach, onboth
sides of the Hudson of all nations
were flung to the breeze—Russian. American,
French, English, Sardinian and Italian. An
American transport, just arrived, was literal
ly covered with fisgs and streamers, from the
topgallantmasts to the sides. Governor’s,
Ellis, and Bedloe’s Islands, and the fortifica
tions generally, as far aa. Sandy Hook, dis
played the American colors in honor of the
occasion. The Bnssian fleet displayed the
flag of their nationality, and ran the American
ensign to the mizzen peak. The Russian fleet
were clustered very near each other, in the
middle of the stream, opposite Piers Nos. 7,
8 and 9. while the Anglo-French fleet were
stationed lower down, opposite the Battery.

of the Steamer Bobert Campbell, Jr., on her
route from Bt. Louis to Vicksburg. On Tues
day morning last, while in the vicinity of Mil-

rapidly, and the boat was soon enveloped in
flames, leaving no time for passengers to se
cure anything. Twenty-three persons are
known to be lost Before staging could be
put out, all on board, able to do so, had to
jump into the river, and many were drowned.

At six o’clock a. m. we were an aroused by
the alarm, and so rapid was the progress of.
the flames that we had barely time to get near
the bow of the boat and get planks and stag

jump overboard. We were cut, off from the
yawls by tbe fire, which commenced in Ibe

the panic which generaUy characterizes such
terrible scenes, and everything was done that

000, with 34 batteries. Lee’s force amounts
to 62,500 infantry, 18,000 cavalry and 204
guns, unless Ewell's corps has been sent to
Johnston, which would reduce Lee’s 'army to
60.000. The rebels expect to gain Chattanoo

send back to Lee Lonestreet’s corps, with
’50,000 additional men, to attack Washington,
The same correspondent says a rebel mili

Thursday, Nor. 96th to be Set
Apart as a I>ay of* Nation*
at Thanksgiving,
Washington, Oct. 3,1863.
By the President of the United States of America:
The year that is drawing towards its close
has been filled with the blessings of iraitfal
fields and healthful skies. To these bounties
which are so constantly enjoyed that we are
prone to forget the sources from which they
come, others have been added Which ore of so
extraordinary a nature that they cannot fail
to penetrate and soften even the heart which
is habitually Insensible to the everwatchfol
Providence of Almighty God.
In the midst of a cruel war of unequalled
magnitude and severity, which has sometimes
seemed to invite and provoke the aggressions
of foreign States, peace has been preserved
with all nations; order has been maintained;
the laws have been respected and obeyed, and
harmony has prevailed everywhere, except in
the theatre of military conflict, while that
theatre has been greatly contracted by the
advancing armies and navies of the Union.
The needfnl diversion of wealth and
strength from the fields of peaceful industry
to the national, defense, have not arrested the
plow, the shuttle or the ship. The axe has
enlarged the borders of our settlements, and
the mines as well of iron and coal as the
precious metal, have yielded even more abun
dantly than heretofore. -Population has stead
ily increased, notwithstanding the waste that
has been made In the camp, the siege and the
battlefield, and, the country rejoicing in the
consciousness of augmented strength and
vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of
years with large increase of freedom. No
human counsel hath devised, nor bath any
mortal hand worked out these great things.
They are the gracious gifts of the Most High
God, who, while dealing with us in anger for
bur tins, hath nevertheless, remembered
mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper
that they should be seleiunly, earnestly and
gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart
and voice, by the whole American people.
Ido therefore invite my fellow citizens in
every part of the United States, and also those
wboare at sea, and those who ore sojourning
in foreign lands, to observe and set apart the
last Thursday of November nest as a day of
Thanksgiving and Prayer to our BeneficenV
Father who dwelleth in the heavens, and I
recommend to them that, while offering up
the ascriptions justly due to Him for such
singular deliverances and blessings, they do
also,' with humble penitence for onr national
perverseness and disobedience, commend to
Bis tender care all those who have become
widows, orphans, or sufferers in the lamenta
ble civil strife in which we are unavoidably
engaged, and fervently Implore the interposi
tion of the Almighty hand to heal the wounds
of the Nation, and to restore it os soon as
may be. consistent with the Divine purposes
to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony,
tranquility and Union.
In testimony whereof; I hare hereunto set
my hand, and caused the seal of the United
States to be affixed. Done at the city of
Washington, the third day of October, in the
of onr Lord 1863, and of the Indepen
dence of the United States the eighty-eighth.

Rebel Loss, 20,000.
Cincinnati, Oct S.—The Commercial has
advices from Chattanooga to Saturday last.
The estimate at headquarters of the losses at
the battle of Chick&mauga is—killed, 1,800;
wounded, 9,500,* prisoners, 2,500; total, 13,-
It was the opinion that if the right wing
had held its own, the reenlt of the battle
would have been a decisive Union victory.
The success of Gen. Thomas on the left was
much greater than represented in any pub
lished account of the battle. Thomas routed
Longstreet’s corps,-and was in a condition to
pursue the enemy; but for disorganization of
the right wing it was impracticable. No sur
prise is felt in the army at the failure of the
enemy to resume the attack.

There ean be no doubt but the burning of
the boat was the work of an incendiary. I
can only write the few particulars I have, os
the Gen. Anderson is just starting off.
The-officers of the boat deserve great credit
for their admirable management even while
the boat was burning, and the pilot, A. S.
Tanyon, merits the highest commendation
and heartfelt gratitude of all who were saved,
which I am sure he has, for nobly standing at
the wheel until the ropes were burned to his
signals. The boat was disposed as favorably
for our escape as she possibly could have
been. The officers of the steamer Gen. An
derson treated us with the utmost kindness,
and did all they could to relieve our wants,
and landed us at Milliken’s Bend,
The .steamer Sunny South passed us by
without taking the slightest notice- of us,
while the burning wreck drifted away, and we
stood half naked and shivering on shore.
Hardy Wilson, second mate of theboat, swam
out alter gettlng.to shore, cut theyaul loose,
and saved the life of Mrs. Cooley,-who was
in the water hanging to the wheel of the
boat. The boat was about one hundred yards
from shore when the passengers and crew had
to take to the waterto save themselves.

Mr. Wilson, street cotton broker of Mem

Carter, a bnteber. The shot was instantly
fatal. The cause of the tragedy was a belief

Yesterday about noon os a caieson 'of the Ist
Mo. Ugbt Artillery— called at VicKßbnrg the
“Flyirg Dutchman”—was being hauled up
the levee, one of the wheels struck against a
stone or other impediment and broke down.
The concussion caused the bomb shells—of
which there were forty in the caisson—to ex
plode, instantly making a tremendous report
and blowing the caieson to atoms. Every
body in town thought a boat had bursts
boiler, and the excitement for upwards of
half an hour was intense. A crowd rushed
towards the scene of thetcnibleaccident but
were warned to retire as other shells might
ignite and another explosion take place—
when there was a regular scramble to reach a
place of safety. The casualties as far as we
nave been able to learn were one nyip mor
tally wounded, being fearfully mangled, and
two others—one of them a soldier, who wu
on board the steamer Illinois—slightly
wounded. The horses attached to the caisson
were also badly burned, and a wagon standing
by when the explosion took place, was upset,
together with the horses attached to it, and
pitched into a gully.

In that county, which concludes as follows:.
41 It is our firm conviction that there are now
in Leavenworth over one hundred Union men
and families who have fiedfrom Platte county
from fear of violence from the men compos
kg the mass of the militia, and that if some
change in affairs does not occur the lives and.
property of radical Union men in Platte
county will be at the mercy oi men whose
loyalty has always been at best doubtful. So
many destitute Union refugees have arrived
in Leavenworth from Missouri that the Mayor
has been compelled to issue a proclamation
.to provide means for the relief of their tem
porary necessities.
. The memorial oi the Kansas delegation to
the President appears in ibe Conservative ,
.of this morning. The memorialists say:
“ The efforts to combine in any system of
administration civil or military elements so
discordant as these which the junction ‘of
Missouri and Houses bring together, can only
add enormous and constant embarrassments
to those which necessarily weigh 'upon the
commander in Missouri. It is sufficient to
say of the present commandant of the Depart
ment of Missouri, that he has entirely lost
the little confidence which the people of
Kansas ever bad in his abilities and efficiency.
The xuid at Lawrence is distinctly traceable
*to the conduct of him and his subordinates
in leaving the border exposed to invasion and
all Its horrible results. If this he denied, the
fact remains that such is the belief of the suf
ferers and those that are exposed to like cal
amities, and such a belief, whether well foun
ded or not, Is fatal to the influence of the
General and the cordial co-operation which
the public safety demands.that he should re
ceive.?’ .
We therefore claim that as well for the gen
eral reason of the unwieldy size of the de
partment, as for the- particular incongruity
in the association of’Kansas and Missouri,
and the personal objections to Gen. Schofield,
that the public interests demand tho restora
tion of the separate department of Kansas.
