Washington, Oct. B, 18CS.
The Richmond DifpatcJi of last Saturday
contains Lee’s official report ot bis invasion
•of Pennsylvania and battle of Gettysburg.
Waiting a month after tbe battle, be says it
3s not yet in bis power to give a correct list
-of tbe casualties. He thus sums up the rea
son for the campaign:
The position occupied by the enemy oppo
site Fredericksburg being one in widen he
could not be atta&ed to advantage, it was
determined to draw it forth. The execution
of this purpose embraced the relief of tbe
Shenandoah valley from troops that had occu
pied the lower part of it during the winter
-and spring, ana if practicable transfer the
scene of hostilities north of the Potomac. It
was thought that corresponding movements
on tbe part of the enemy to which those con
templated by us would probably give rise
might offer a fair opportunity to strike a blow
&1 the army commanded by Gen. Hooker, and
3n such event that army would be compelled
To leave Virginia, and probably draw to its
support all troops designed to operate against
other parts of the country. In this way it
Was supposed that the enemy’s plan of the
•campaign for the summer would be broken
up, and part of the season of active opera
tions be consumed in tbe formation of new
combinations and preparations that they
“would require. In addition to these advan
tages it was hoped other valuable results
might be obtained by his military success.

Upon tbe whole, as frr as we can judge of

Kanagavta, Japan, Friday. July 21th, 18C5.
We have beat furnished tbe following ac
count of tbe trip of the United States steam
er Wjomir ghy E. 8. Benson, Esq., who was
a passenger on hoard:
Information having reached Yokohama on
the 11th instant that the Arnpriran steamer
Pembroke had been fired into by two Japan
ese armed vessels, Captain ilcDongal imme
diately issued the necessary orders to prepare
for sea. Coal and stores having been ta
ken cn board, we got under weigh at 5
o’clock rn tbe more log of tbe 13th instant;
entered the But go Channel on the 15th, and
anchored at theisland of Hime Sima The
next moiuirg, (ICth last,) we proceeded to
wards the Straits of Shimonoseki, the Western
entrance of the Inland Sea. On the northern
shore of the narrow passage is the Province
cl Nagato, governed by the Prince ot Tchu
Within the past year he purchased the
steamer Lanceueld and brig Lanrick. firmer
for $125,000, and tbe latter Tor about $25,000.
•On nearing ihe Straits a signal gon was tir
ed from a masked battery on the northern
shore, which was repeated by two others to
the westward towards Shimonoseki.
Rounding Ihe point on the southern side of
the entrance, a bark, brig, sod steamer,
were discovered lying at anchor close to the
north • shore: the steamer and the
brig were Immediately made ont to
be the “Llncelield” and the Lmrick;'*
the bark’s name we did cot know. All
tbe vends were flying the Japanese fl»g at
the peak, and the private colors cf tbe Prince
of Nsgato at the main. We now steered di
rectly tor the vessels, when a battery of three
guns on the northern shore, about fifty feet
above the levd oi the sea, opened fire on ns,
cutting up the rigging between the main and
znizen mast, we then ran np the American
flag, and, still steaming on, were fired on by
a battery of four gone. To this we replied
with a broadside.
We were now rapidly approaching the ves
sels; bark was close in shore; aoont fifty
voids outdde of her and, at one length ahead,
la} the biig another length ahead, and fifty
y&rds outside the brig was the steamer.
The main channel was outside ot all these
vessels. Captain HcDougal gave orders to
run tbe Wyoming between the steamer and
the brig. As we got abreast of the bark she
opened abroadsiae fire from three gnna; In
less than two minutes we were abreast ot the
brig and received her fire from four brass
32-ponndere. We now hod the steamer on
cur port side, her guns, like the others, be
ing trained ou the channel, she fired a few
swivels and small arms only. In passing we
gave them all our guns cn both sides hulling
both the brig and steamer. Keeping close
round the bows of the steamer we stood
over toward the southern shore receivings
constant fire from six batteries, the steamer,
brig and bark. We here got aground,
but backed off witbant much difficulty
The steamer Lincefield hiving steam np,
slipped her cable, keeping close along the
northern shore, either with the Intention of
escaping, or running on shore, to examine
the damage caused by our first shots. The
Wyoming was now manoeuvred into position
and an 11-inch shell was planted in the steam
er amid-shlpo, about one foot above the wa
ter line. In an instant, volumes of steam
and smoke issued out oi her lore and
aftj; her boiler was exploded. After drop
ping two more shells into her hall, tbe order
was given to cease firing on the steamer, and
to direct tbe shots upon the different batter
ies, the barque, ana the brig, all of which
were loading and firing as rapidly as possible.
Quite a number of shell exploded in the bat
teries and considerable damage was done to
the town.
In passing ont of the Straits we delivered a
few very ctlcctive shots into the brig and the
last seen of her she was last settling by tbe
stern; the fire from tbe batteries was kept np
throughout, bat somewhat slackened on our
By that time we had lour men killed out

posed to six shore batteries of an average of
three guns each, the barque fix, the brig
eight, and tbe creamer two, making in all,
thirty-four guns, mostly 32-poundere; Capt.

from so unequal a contest, and proceeded

which we publish this day for the information
and gratification of our readers:
“On tie 9th instant, H N.M.'a steamship Me
duratelxleen guns) left Nagasaki on her way to
Eanagawaby the Subeo-Nada or Island passage,
and at some distance from Nagaeakt she met H.
N. ftl.’ildbpatchboatKleu-ci'an—Commander Lt
-on—wto informed the Medusa that aha had been
fired upon by the forts at Shimonoseki acd by two
foreign built vessels (one under the Japanese flag)
■yirg in tbe harbor.
M 'i be Captain of the Medusa had previously de
ricUdto pass through the Inland Sea, and there
fore, bed Japanese pilot provided by the Cor
el ror of Nagasaki -
On the morning of the 1 thof July the Medusa
weighed anchor in the neighborhood of Av-sima
where she bad awaited day-light to run into
Ctimoiioseki Straits. On entering this Strait two
blank shots were fired from one of the batteries
and were immediately answered by eight similar
ones from the brig before the town. As yet the
Medusa did not think that these signals would be
followed by any hostile act—more especially as
the opposite snore of Kto-eiu was lined with
native junks. Having approached the brig she
and a barque without any flag and a very heavily
a' med battery on tbe hill opened fire upon the
M> dusa. - Upon the brig (Lanrick) flew the flag of
the Dalmiio Nugato—being the blue flag -with
three white balls in a triangle and a white stripe
above; from the peak no flag flew. The two ves
sels lay behind a back In about two fathoms of
water and therefore tbe Medusa cond not possibly
approach them nearer than three cables lengths.
The Medusa after the manner of the ships-of-war,
immediately responded to tbe forts and the ships
with shot and shell. S
** Steering slowly up the stream the Medusa
kept up a constant flic agaihst the ships and bat
teries—tbe latter being all armed with heavy ar
tillery (mostly 24-pounders and 6-inch shells).
It was already discovered that there were six
batteries at least- The Medusa silenced the big
gest of them, which mounted eight very heavy
guns, but tbe others, which were behind trees and
rocks cn tbe heights, kept firing away upon her.
A few well directed shots from the Medusa some
what staggered the firing on hoard tbe two ships,
but she got it all the heavier from the batteries
on shore as she was steaming past within reach
of them.
She being exposed to the cross fire of four bat
teries infront of Sbcnxonoseki, and tbe correct aim
of the enemies shot and ehell having begun to tell
on the bnll of the Medusa, tbe Commander was in
duced to give up all idea of sinking tbe two ships,
which unfortunately were la tooshallow water.
It became now a matter ofimposelbUlty to return
with effect the fire of all tbe batteries which fired
on the Mednso, and she being in doabt also as to
the intentions of some batteries on the Eiusln
side, she determined to make a dash through the
straits, firing as quickly as she could all the time.
To prevent the great disaster of having her holl
er, screw, or rudder hit by tbe largo calibre of the
enemy's shot, she. determined to steam slowly
through, answering tbe enemy's fire all the time.
When ills considered that tbe Medusa was un
der a heavy fire from seven batteries for an hour
and a half, it is wonderful that she did not sink,
and that she has to deplore tbe loss of so few men
“ Of SI enemies' ebotF, IT pierced tbe hull of the
Mednta, ihe remainder pasting through her rig*
gisg and funnel; 8 eight-inch shells of the enemy
Must on board. A SOpoundcr shot killed three
and grounded two men in one battery on board the
Medusa. A similar shot soon after struck a sailor
of the first class, commanding a gun, inflicting a
mortal wound on him, from which he died soon
after. The Consul General bad a very narrow
escape from being killed by this ball, which passed
quite close to him. Another ball entered tbe star*
hoard, smashing a pistol-rack and scattering splin
ters and balls in all directions, and wonndlag two
sailors severely; thoseare still in a dangerous state.
This particular ball passed between the Captain
and midshipman Waescl, both hiring a narrow
rtcflpe, but suffering only slight injuries from
splinters. Lieut. Thurkow and a non-commls
•sloned officer also had a miraculous escape from
anotherball which entered the ship. The man*
ner in which splinters and bolts flew about the
thip was indescribable.
Considering that three shells bad exploded on
board, and that Tfiballs had entered the ship and
caused her much injury, it is as to niching that only
four men were killed and Are wounded.
The orders of the cotnmander were carried out
with tbe greatest coolness, and the men behaved
very well—few of them haring ever been under
Are before.
It is impossible to determine the loss of the
enemy, hat it must be considerable, as they mas*
terrd in great force in tbe batteries, and tbe Meda
pa's grape-shot and 8-lnch shells told with great
effect among them and mast have caused great de*
in thohatterifs. All her shots which
mirscd tbe batteries went into the town, whereas,
all tbe enemy’s shots which missed the Medu«a
went into tbe Jnnks beyond her, on the Kinsln
side In the broadest part the Strait is about 1,500
Datch jards wide, and in tbe narrowest, about 000
cause Capt. Conway volunteered to run her
past tbe batteries at Vicksburg.

Nashville. Oct. s. — Wheeler’s cavalry, es

Nashville, Oct. s.—Four or five thousand .
rebel cavalry, under Wheeler, with artillery,
attacked McMinnville on Saturday afternoon,
capturing tbe town and garrison, consisting
of the 4th Penna. infimtiy: Our forces were
without artillery, and tbe town without de
fenses or fortifications.
The rebels burned a train of cars, and de
stroyed the railroad and telegraph. They are
believed to be advancing on Manchester.
Several prominent Union citizens are sup
posed to be captured.
A part of the same force destroyed a train
of 200 wagons, onFriday, between Bridgeport
and Chattanooga, and captured an ammuni
tion train of twelve wagons.
Portions of the rebel cavalry are scattered
alcsg the road near and south of Murfrees

stockades, &c. Our troops are closely pur
suing them.

Caiho, Oct. 5.1863.
By the arrival of the steamer J. D. Perry,
Zelgler, Master, we have one day’s later ad
vices from Memphis, Vicksburg and Little
Bock, or news to the 28th ult.
At 9 o’clock on the night of the 27th, the
despatch boat, Indiana, Capt. Flowers, explo
ded her boiler,, when below Grand Lake,'
bound up from Vicksburg. The steamer is
now undergoing repairs at Sldperith’s Land
ing. The old Sam Gaty was sunk by a snag
last Tuesday, at the latter place. • '
Everything is quiet at Little Rock, in a mil*
itaiy point of view. Price’s retreating army
was last heard from in the vicinity of Shreve
port, La., and reported bound for some point
in Texas. Many citizens of Little Bock, who
left in Price’s army, are now returning in
scores. The people of the State generally hail
the restoration of Federal role with pleasure.
They have been long bound down by Iron
despotism and hail their hour of deliverance
with open demonstrations of joy. Unionism
is at a heavy premium at the capital of Ar
kansas. A newspaper called the tfatiotuti
Union is now in course of publication at Lit
tle Bode. J. W. Deneby, a State Union refu
gee, is the publisher. The Union has several
excellent articles, from which I extract tbj
following. Concluding an able leaden, th(
editor remarks.: j . -;
They rnn property from the present of ai
army, whose tramp and.*-artillery. \r. beard ii
every State,, from Virginia tq, Texas, an
wbese banner floats triumph-intly and is Im
movably fixed over tbe soli wherever its heavy
battalions are moved. The national forces
are not here to destroy property, lives, or to
injure the country in any manner, but on the
contrary, to save and protec. them
Arkansiansl come up to the work
ei ation. Let ns help in establishing a State
of affairs which will render the presence of
the rational army unnecessary. Como to
either from the-valleys and hills, mighty un
to peace, and we assure you It at prosperity
win once more abound throughout the land.
Trains are now passing over the road between
Little Rock and Davail’s Bluff, thus comple
ting a good line of transportation, In connec
tion with 'White River, between this city and
the great ditch opened through the Confed
eracy, connecting both extremities with the
outride woild.
Severe punishment, if not death, will be in
flict! d upon all who depredate upon this rail
road line. The rebels burned nearly all the,
rolling stock to keep it from falling into Fed-,
eral possession, but boats and railroads can
readily be supplied by a people who can call
ont at any moment from their lines, mechan
ics and engineers, and representatives of
every department of art.
Ail that is necessary to know Is that some
thing is to be done, when np starts men to do,
it. Trade will he opened at Little Rock as
soon as matters can be arranged, if the people
conduct themselves in such a manner os to se
cme the good opinion of the authorities. All
that is possible will be done to relieve the
citizens fiom misery and want.
The Union advises the inhabitants to bring
in whatever they can in the way of marketing
they nny have to spare, and promises them
fair treatment and remuneration for their
products. It also advices them to resume
their brotherhood, and they (the .Unionists)
will clcthe and feed them—even without
money or price, in cases of - necessity, as they
have and ore doing in thousands of coses.
The some paper publishes tha proceedings
ol the first Union meetmgheld by Arkansians
since the opening of the rebellion, and states,
editorially, that the men who are engaged in
the enterprise are known to he-of the right
stripe. We hail the movement as the fore
runner of a glorious future, not.far distant,
when our State will once more take herposi
tion amoeg the great States of America. The
ball is in motion.' Who shall we hear from
next? - Come up like brave men. Your
Northern brethren will co-operate with you
in every manner possible for the restoration
of yonr lost liberties.
In fbe region where this meeting was held
a company is being raised and being armed
lor the defence of their homes. Its members
are against the soulless wretches who infest
that country.
A Union mcetibg was also held Union
Township, Fulsski county, by a portion of
the citizens of Pulaski, Saline and Jefferson
counties. The audience being Arkansas peo-*
pie. The meeting was addressed by Cspt. 8.
MUler, John W. Joy and W. W. Jerigan-J
A series of resolutions was presented to the
following effect:
Firet— That the restoration of civil law is Indis
pensable to the eecartiy of person and property ;
and to this end the re-establishmcnt or Federal
aythority is a necessity.
Second—That the experience of two years of
anarchy and despotism Impress tbe people of
Aikantos with the value of tho blessings lost,
and taught wisdom forthe future, and Increased
love for tbe old established Uniou; that we earn
estly deshe the restoration of the Federal and State
Governments as soon as possible. We pledge
ourselves to make all honorable exertion- to re
store and maintain the supremacy ot tho Govern
ment of lb e United States.
Third— That tho besf means to accomplish this
object is to exterminate the rebel role by arms,
and to issue writs of election for members of the
Legislature at the earliest day practicable.
Dr. C. V. Meador is about starting a Union
paper at Little Rock.
Gen. Davidson had been sick for several
days, He was improving, however, at latest
accounts, and It was thought he would be
about attending to his duties in a few days.'
Quite a number of volunteers (Union men).
Is being raised in this vicinity and arms and
ammunition is being caused to be distributed ,
by the proper authorities.
Numerous inhuman outrages by rebels dis
guised io Federal uniforms Is reported. A
number of these miacreonts appeared on the
Mount Ida road, near Little Maume, seven
teen miles west of Little Rock, a few days
ago, representing themselves as Union men,
but afterwards confessed they belonged to
Marmtdnke’sgang; they took ont. into the
-woods. These men are Smith,- his brother-in

they shot dead, and wounded the other, but
he managed to make his escape. These mur

Government. In addition to this many of
the papers say much and say It in good strong

General apathy prevails through, the South
in relation to the war. These frequent out
bursts of wrath at the lukewarm and indif

Rebel guerillas near Memphis were defeat
ed Thursday last in an attempt to capture
one Spice, a cotton buyer. A trap was set
to delude Spice into the belief that a large
quantity of cotton could be found near Nox
Conah, and he was requested to go out after
It. Having some experience Spice suspected
all was not right, and took seven armed men
with him- They met guerillas, consisting of
three Captains and two privates of Chalmers
crew, and after a short skirmish put them to
flight, killing Crawford, the officer in com
mand, and taking one prisoner* They alio
captured one horse and saddle, three revolv*
ers and returned to Memphis safe and sound.
