SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25, 18G3. THE NEWS. The proclamation of the Governor Illinois, which we print in full, appealing to the loyal men oi Illinois to fill up the quota of the State hy volunteering, will commend itself to every man who Las the good of the country at heart. Gov. Tates Las spoken many true and brave “words fcince the outbreak of this infamous rebel' Lon, but none braver and truer than these in which he speaks to all the people of Illinois. ‘We invoke the loyal men of Chi cago to respond to the appeal, and to com mence without delay upon the work of re cruiting volunteers to fill the ranks of our decimated regiments in the field. The eminently practical suggestions of the <3ovcmor aflord the means; it only ndSds hearty co-opcration upon the part of the people to make it a thorough and immedi ate success. The news from Charleston is of the old Stereotyped character, andwe are again informed that our batteries are almost jvady to open on the nest of treason. '** Fly swift around ye wheels of time and bring the welcome day.” The official returns from Pennsylvania place Gov. Curtin’s majority at 15,258. There is nothing new from the Army of the Potomac. All is quiet along its banks lleadc b whereabouts are unknown. Lee is supposed to be on the retreat, a port of lilts forces reinforcing Bragg, and the oth er part on the road to intercept Burnside’s raid. Onr dispatches Irom New Orleans and Memphis arc very interesting, and furnish a detailed Budget of news from those lo calities and their vicinities. Bank? is ad vancing rapidly into the heart of Texas, with little opposition, and McPherson has defeated the rebels on the Big Black. The Copperheads of Illinois and Mew Tcrk find their parallel in the Copper heads of Mew Jersey. It only needs & few more outrages upon the part of these m'&crcants to convert Mew Jersey thor oughly to the Union cause. Upon the inside of this i-sue will be found the President's reply to the Missouri Dele gation, his letter ofinstructions to General Schofield, and the address of Hon. C, D. Drake, Chairman of the Delegation, to the Missouri radicals. They form an Import ant chapter in the history of the war, and •will give the reader a clear insight into the Missouri troubles. IEE I'SII F,I>_Sr A-» I,S SlMTiliY CQisanssioN. We underfund that a paragraph relating to the affaire of the Chicago Sanitary Commission, which appeared in our issue of the 23d, is liable to misapprehension. TTc have since learned that the ladies there referred to, Mrs. Hoge and Mrs. Liv ermore, have received lor their services only a compensation sufficient to cover the expense to which they are necessarily subject in leaving their ordinary business for that of the Commission, and that com pensation, as slated, comes from, the pa rent society at "Washington. For a year, they worked for nothing, and bore their own expenses—and it is not ten months Since they have been paid anything. If those ladies are not dieted members of Hie Commission, they are de facto mem bers, and have by their energy, devotion, and ability, actually more than sextupled the receipts ot the Commission, audits power of doing good. TVe also learn that the Chicago Banitaiy C jmmisaon has in its employ lady agents 5a other parts of the country, whoso com pensation is like that received by the Chi- Cftzo ladies—and itis to these wise arrange ments that the Commission owes much of its efficiency. FROM WASHINGTON. INTERESTING NEWS FROM THE SOUTH. Speech of Jeff. Davis to the Rebel Troops. [From oar Keen's: Correspondent ] Wassikgion, Oct. 53,1683. The Atlanta (Ga.) Appeal of the 12 th, has a letter from before Chattanooga, dated the 11th, describing a visit of Davis to tbe rebel camp. says that he was accompanied by General Bragg. He proceeded to visit the camps and Inspect the works. The fine location of these afforded the President an excellent opportu nity for seeing those of the enemy also, and he exhibited an interest in them, and amply gratified hla curiotity. The troops were form ed in line along the works, and as he passed along the front, he was received with cheer sifter cheer by our enthusiastic and confident veterans. At every available point the eager ciowds of the enemy were visible scanning the movements in our lines, bat no guns were fired, though they could easily have* reached wlih their shells the brilliant cml cafie that followed the President. Thetroops had laid aside their rough and ragged appear ance which ao many of them seem to take a pride in, and their stately forms, burnished arms, and serviceable equipments, show that we are very far from being the starved out people which the Yankees vainly Imagine ns to be. President Davis made the entire cir cuit ol the rebel lines. The Southern papers also contain the fol lowing telegrams concerning his journey homeward: Dixtox, Oct. 14 —President Davis left Gen. Bragg's army to-day, with great satis faction, and in high anticipation. The people colled him out, and he said that we had been looking in the lace of tbe enemy, but would rec their backs soon. Most important move ments are on loot, and a glorious campaign * is anticipated. Atlaxta, Oct 20.—The President arrived here this morning. He denied having used the language ascribed to bim in his speech to the army before Chattanooga. He compli mented the officers and men generally, and addressed no such words as shtUs of malice. The President goes West to night. General Gardner has beuiscm to Florida as tbe suc cessor of Gen. Oobb. apbuess of jrrr. navis. JdISSIONAST Kidob. Oct. St, 1568.

(Signed,) Jetfehson Davis. President Davis arrived litre this evening, and was welcomed hj the citizens en man*. An immense crowd gathered in front of the hero. The President congratulated the peo ple on meeting them under such favorable circumstances, and spoke in glowing terms of the gallantly of Alabama on eve;y battle field lie said: If the non-conscripts of Alabama -would gather their guns acd go to the rescue, by guarding Caaitland and other points, thereby relieving the regular soldiers who are now, from necessity, discharging that post of doty, each blows would be dealt the ei cmy as he would find it difficult to recover from. In this way most effeclre aid could be given the gal!eat men and officers who are cmy lag out the plan of the noble Longatreet, under the snperrislon of the heroic Drrgc. In this way the people Were confident that Roeccrans could he crushed to dust, it was only by force of arms that the Yankees could be brought to reason, and their plans forever subjugated and de feated. Self reliance and energy was now our only duty, and we should notlook to Eu rope for aid, for such li net to he expected now. Oor only alitxualire was to sustain our selves With renewed energy and determina tion, and a little more' sacrifice upon the part ct the people, and the President firmly believed that next spring would see the in vader driven from our borders, and then the Comers, who are now refugees, could return to their families and pursue their business un disturbed as heretofore. In fact, he believed that the defeat cf Besecnns would practical ly end the war. The Atlanta (Ga.) Appeal says that Bose crass is preparing for a terrible onslaught in Georgia and Alabama, to suze the railroad connections, and thus produce a second sev erance of the Confederacy. The fifteen days that have elapsed since the battle of Chicka mauga have enabled him to make sure of hie grip on the entire Slate of Tensesse, which is -of far more service to him than would be hall a dozen Richmond's, ox the samenum her ct Charlestons. The Appeal thinks that Bceccnns will not move with less than a hun- dred and fifty thousand mea. The Southern papers contain the returns from recent gaber natoral election in Georgia, which pnt the election on Gov. Brown, the present inenm* bint, and the constant antagonist of Jeff.

Destruction of the Blockade Bonner Dooro. [From the K. T. Tribune, SSd.] Bzarronx, N. Cl, Oct. 15,18C3. The naval supply steamer Newbem came in this morning, from the blockading squad ron off Wilmington, bringing intelligence of tbe destruction oftbe blockade ruonerDouro, Led the capture of five prisoners, by the United States gunboat Naneemond, on the evening of the llth ln»t. From an officer of the Newbem, upon whose correctness I can rely. 1 learn the following facts with regard to me exploit: This vessel was first discovered by the Niu.semoiid at o'clock on Sunday evening last, steaming slowly up the coast of North Carolina, about seven miles from New Inlet. The Nanecznocd followed her cautiously for a mile or more, hoping that she would get so far from the beach before 'she was aware of being seen es to be prevented from running aground, ns such as she invariably do, to avoid being captured. She soon discovered tbc Nanstxuond, who, as she attempted to turn around to put back to "Wilmington, after challenging her twice with signal Uterus, fired at her from both her guns. One shot struck her starboard quarter, and assured her th»t escape was impossible, and she ran with full head of steam upon the beach. The Nonsemond sent a email boat near enough to ascertain her character and condi tion, and, after It Led returned, opened fire upon her, until the steamer showed a moving light, which was intended for a surrender, wnen au officer end a boat’s crew were sent to her to ascertain how thoroughly she had grounded, and touring offeveiy cue onboard. The boat returned with lour prisoners, and the intelligence that ehe could probably be easily pulled off After a great deal of difficul ty and labor, two boats from the Nausemocd succeeded is getting a hawser to her. An en gineer was sent on board to assist by working her ergine. Aftermore than half an hour of en crgeilebut fruitless tugging, she was reluctant ly given up ashopelesßiy aground, and nothing could be done but destroy her. Preparations had already been made for tht* contingency, and she was fired in the after hatch between a barrel of rosin and a bale of cotton, and the boats left her and returned to the Nazwemoad. She had grounded at falling tide, and before she was given up the water had left her keel bare at the bow. Airesb breeze was blowing on shore, which carried the fire forward through the whole cargo, and, within half an . hour, she was burning all over with a bright, I steady flame, which continued all night, mak ing with the background of woods, and the I white sand beach, the restless sea, and the I watchful Nonsemond, a picture never to be I forgotten. In the morning she was nothing 1 but a shell ol iron. After tbe Douro was fired and the boats had returned, the Nansemond shelled the burning wreck for an hour or two to make her de struction more certain. It was foil two hours from the lime theves sel grounded till she was fired. It was expect ed that within half an hourafter she ran upon the beach the rebels would be down with field artillery to protect the wreck, and the amah boat expedition which was sent from the Namemond to make fast the htwser, and, falling to get her afloat, fire her, was a dangerous one. It was commanded by En sign J. B. Henderson, to whom great credltrs due for the bravery and judgment with which I he conducted it The only danger was not | from rebel shots, for before Ensign Sender- | son and bis crew were ready to de&ert the ship the tide had fallen so low os to leave the two boats in the breakers, in imminent dan ger of being wrecked. One of them was al ready half lull of water, and Its rudder carried away; but after a hard struggle and thorough wetting they succeeded in reaching the Nan semond in safety, without a man lost. There bad been no time for plunder while they were on the wreck, and the only article saved from her was a valuable quadrant, which Ensign llecdercos, mindful of the necessities -f the Kac semond, seized at the last moment before evacuating. Another prisoner, a deck hand, was founti on board, and brought away to the K&nsCtnond in the last boat. Tbeprisoners are Mr. Morris, 2d Mate; Mr. Roberts, Sd Mate; a German passenger, s fire man, and a sailor. My informant conversed with the prisoners very freely, and has furnished me with the important part of the intelligence they tar nished him. The Douro was bound to Nas sau, and left Wilmington at six in the morn ing, and New Inlet at seven in the evening of tbe llth. She had on board 550 bales cotton, 279 boxes tobacco, 20 tierces do., eight bir rcis rosin, two barrels turpentine, and 25 persons, all belonging to the ship except two passengers. The value of her cargo, at a veiy moderate estimate, is $150,000. She is an iron Clyde propeller of COO or TDD tuns, and is certainly valuable enough to make the worth oi the whole amount of property destroy ed $200,000. She was once captured by the gnnhe&t Quaker City, and when sold as a prize, was bought by parties in New York, and by them resold to parties in Alabama, by whom, up to last Sunday night, she was still owned. The cotton was the properly ol the Confederate Government, ord is part ol the «* Loan Gottorn” The rest £f the cargo belonged to private parlies. There were aho on board $5),C00 in North Carolina State bonds, which were taken ashore by her commander. As torn 6hf grounded the "boaU were low. erea, ud all succeeded iuceuinirto ehcra eitcpt the live prttoners, who were lelt hy mlib-Lc. The two Matos have been engaged In the bcriiif es of blockade running ever since the war broke out, simply for money-making. THE KEW CALL FOB TROOPS. Proclamation by Gov. Yates. AN ELOQUENT APPEAL TO THE PEOPLE OF ILLINOIS, Illinois Called upon for her Quota of Volunteers. [Special Dispatch to the Chicago Trib an*.] State of Illinois, 1 Executive Devahticbht > SrnirfoTiELD, October 24,1663. ) To the People of Illinois: 7lie President of the United States, by bis Proclamation of the 17th inst.,'h&s called for three hundred thousand more volunteers, for three years or during the war, (not to exceed three years,) to be enlisted in companies and regiments note in the field. Ho has called upon the Governors oi the different States, and all the good acd loyolrpeoplc, thereof, and In-; vokcb them to lead* Uidr cheerful., wlillug, ana effective cidpand in pursuance of the powers Tested In him bylaw, he has declared that in those States which shall not famish their respective quota by the sth day of Janu ary next, a draft shall on that day be nude to make up the deficiency. Though tecirg lu the past or future little t a dlscourtge, but much to encourage me, I folly admit the necessity which at this time oiled forth that proclamation, and most cheerfully endorse the measures which It con ta ns. It proves the existence of an unchange able policy to prosecute the war to a success ful teiruination, and in providing the best means of doing it by filling up the thinned «,d decimated ranks of cor honored veteran regiments now in existence, it gives expres sion to the great voice of the nation. As such it challenges the approbation of every Icyal mind, and should awaken the thanks of tverr loyal heart in the land. For information as to the quota assigned to this State, the present system of recmltiog. and probable number to be raised by the State, under the late call, I refer you to an order to be issued from the Adjutant Gene nJs*s office. Fellow citizens: 1 hare so’, often by procla mation, and in public speeches, appealed to 3 our patriotism to come forward to the rctcue of our beloved country, that I cannot add to what has been already said touching your cemmon duties. I am proud that I have never made these appeals la vain- Every call for troops has met with a cheerfal and quick response. Better, braver, more unself ish and patriotic soldiers than ours never carried the banners ol their country into con filet. On every battle field, they have illus trated their devotion to their country, their pride cf their State, and their attachment to homes which they are defending. Their patient endurance, their heroic fortitude and daring valor, are the praif© of every tongue, and the joy of every heart. Such ore the men I vho coll upon the county, and appeal to you I to reinforce them, mot with unwilling and faint hearted conscripts, but with patriotic, high-minded and devoted volunteer freemen. In case of a draft, however, 1 shall endeavor to see to it that each district and county in the State is credited by the General Govern ment with the volunteers furnished by it since the commencement of the war, leaving those portions of the State against whom there shall be a deficit, to complete their quota with conscripts. Eeporta and estimates are now being prepared to meet the contin gency, and to the end that all of our citizens who may enlist maybe properly cred ited to the State, 1 forbid all recruiting in this State except for our own regiments, and 1 call on ail good citizens to report to me or to the Provost Marshal General of the State, any violation of this prohibition. Eemlnclng you of what now appears evi dent, that we are rapidly approaching the great crisis in our national afikirs, believing, as I do, that with the additional forces now called for, the crisis will he passed in safety to the BepnblJc and triumph to our arms, and that a permanent and conquered peace will reward you for all your sacrifices, I invoke you, as you love the land of your birth or adoption, to once more come to its support, and furnish the forces required of us. Let patriotic public meetings be held in every town in the State. Let the determination of our people be general and universe! to main tain the fair fame of cur State, and I feel con fident there will he no failure. Eichabu Tatis, Governor. FROM MEMPHIS AND BELOW.

Washington, Oct. 2U—No sutlers are now with the Army of the Potomac, they having durirgibe late campaign been ordered to the rea:—the restriction not jet having been re moved. There was nothing positively known up to yesterday noon of Lee’s whereabouts. The Secretary of War returned to Wash ington to-day. Washington, Oct 24.—Gen. Meade, not being able to get through his business with the President in time, did not return to the front till yesterday morning. It is authori tatively elated that he is not to be super seded. - The story in the Richmond papers of the 21st, that Lee bos taken 1,000 prisoners from Meade In the late campaign, is entirely myth ical. New Torn, Oct. 24.—The JTeroltTs Wash ington dispatch says: “It is cold that Gen. Meade made a frank statement concerning the peremptory Instructions lately received by him to compel Gen. Lee to accept a fight, which not being able to carry out to the let ter, he declared himself ready and willing to resign his command. The President de clined to entertain any ench proposition, and Gen. Meade has gone back to his post. It is rumored that Lee lias sent two more divisions to support Bragg, and that he is withdrawing the rest of his forces behind the fortifications at Fredericksburg. Gen. Gregg's cavalry advanced on a recon* noksance yesterday within two miles of the Rappahannock, and returned to camp with out finding the enemy. Last night a brisk fight was had with Mos* by’s guerillas in Fairfax county, in which several were killed and a number taken pris oners. Among the latter is Jack Barnes, a no* torlons scoundrel who has been three times in our hands and released upon taking the cath of allegiance. The New Fork Times’ Washington dispatch says: It Is now positively ascertained that a portion of Ewell's corps has been dispatched from GordonsviUe by rail to resist the ad-, vsnee offinmalde towards Lynchburg. % The reported advance of onr forces on the Peninsula, towards Richmond, is of course, false. It should be borne in mind that Burnside has a large force of mounted infantry engaged in destroying the main rebel railroad com* mnnlcation with the Southwest. No appre hensions arc felt for Burnside's safety. FROM CHARLESTON. Sen. Gilmore’s Batteries Nearly Beady to Operate. WAsraxoTOif, Oct. 24.—A lettcrto the New York Evening Ihst says: Dispatchs here give reason to believe that the quiet at Charleston is soon to he broken* Cok Jas. R. Hawley of the 7th Connecticut, is in town to-day, fresh from Morris Island, where he has been acting as Brigadier General in place of Stephenson, who has been on furlough Young, Dahl gren, and Cot Hawley, give favorable reports of the condition ol affairs In the fleet and army off Charleston. Much interest is lelt in the fleet about the rebel torpedoes. The strictest watch is kept, particularly at night, over the movements of anything that floats on the waters. Our own boats art some times fired into by mistake, so careful are the iron-dads to keep off floating torpedoes. Philadelphia. Oct. 24.—The steamer Mas- Eachneettshas arrived from St. Johns, Fla. She left Charleston Tuesday evening, and brings dispatches from Admiral Dahlgrcn. The siege is progressing favorably. General Gilmore’s batteries were nearly ready to open on Charleston. FROM CINCINNATI. [Special Dispatch to the.Chicago Tribune.] Cincijo;ati, Oct. S3, 1563. Gen. Bosecrans is at Nashville. He will ar rive here on the mail boat on Monday noon. The Infamous charges preferred against him create great excitement He will receive the greatest reception ever given to any one. Active preparations are being made for the draft, which is ordered to take place on the 26th. The quota required from each county will be announced on Monday. The quota from tbia county will not exceed €OO men. The Ohio River Is rising slowly, and the probabilities that it will rise sufficient to bring coal down are encouraging. Coal sold here at $22.50 per load to day. I have the very best authority for saying that the reports in the Eastern papers regard ing Rosecrans 1 personal habits and bad con duct at Chickamauga, are base slanders, pub lished for the purpose ot fortifying his re moval, which was caused by the personal hos tility on the part of Washington officials, who are really responsible for the results that are now attributed to the Commanding General. Tide will all be established by official in quiry. FROM MADISON. [Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Mawsox, Oct. 24,1563. Gov. Salomon to-day issued a proclama tion, with regard to the pending draft and the new call for volunteers. He announces that the draft will take place In November. The number of men enrolled in the State is C 5,845, of which 20 per cent, would be 13,769. ; But the excess on its previous call, for which credit will be given Congressional Districts, but not to cities, redaces the quota of men due to eight or nine thou sand. Credit will be given on this draft for enlistments in the 85th regiment and battery of artillery, organized under the call for 800,000 volunteers. The Wisconsin quota Is about 9,700. Towns or wards furnishing their quota before January sth will not be eubject to draft for any deficiency In the State. No new regiments will be organized. Veteran volunteers get $402 bounty, and oth er volunteers, for old regiments, get $302. Enlistments may be made through Assistant Provost ilarthols or recruiting officers de* % tailed from regiments in the field. The Governor’s proclamation closes with the following eloquent appeal: “As the people of Wisconsin have evinced their patriotism, heretofore, upon every occasion when the nation has made a call for men in the present great national straggle, 1, trust they will not foil to fill their quotas of volunteers under this call, by the appointed day. The rebellion has received many a severe blow. During the past two years It has been crippled and narrowed down, and *ll it* hopes of aid from without have failed. The last able-bodied white man In its power has been driven Into its ranks. It can make but one bat desperate. effort, with the armies now in the field. Under these circum stances, shall our National Government, shall our brave men in the field, call in valu for reinforcements by volunteering ? I trust not. We cannot and must not stop hfif wry* but must sustain our brave brother* in the .field, and struggle on uutiPtbla rebellion is suppressed. If this new call lor volunteers, intended to fill the ranks of the dcclmatedand veteran regiments, is answcrtdpromptly, that will give more reel strength to out army than ary previous call has ever done, because the strength of the new levy will not be crippled, end wasted by an Inexperienced officer,-but vv ill be made to tell its full weight and power under cxx>cricuccd leaders.

Now tha; &U the com* maiid is in, I am able to fomiaii a more' rcli - ahio account of that ufialr than the first des patches, vlilch were i necessarily incomplete, owing to the &b<cnce of aportion ot toe com mano. The coumjanoer of the division re* ceived orders on Sunday last to move as far us possible toward Warrcnton, under the sup pobillou that nothing but cavalry would op* coeebls progresa, atd knotting Kilpatrick ban whipped Stuart alone on several well* contested fields, it was not thonght-worili while to advance infantry within immediate supporting Notwithstandiag this division has heou constantly on active duty, and the men and horses were considerably the worse for wear, the order to march was obeyed with alacrity, and the command was moving by 3 o'clock p. m. on Sunday. But little progress Lad been made from Bull Run before the enemy’s pickets were encountered and driven back upon their supports at Gainesville, where two regiments were found drawn up in line ot battle. Night cotuiog on, the command encamped. Early Monday morning tie advance was sounded, and the enemy retired from Gainesville, fighting as they went, taking the Warrenton pike. From Gainesville Gen Kilpatrick took the precaution to send the Fi'StYiiglnU regiment, Major Farrable, to Hay market and vtclolty to guard the right flank, and the Seventh Michi gan, Cob Mann, to Greenwich and vicinity to guard the left flask, while the remainder of the division moved up the Warrenton pike.— The enemy fled precipitately until they had crossed Broad Run, at Bucklana Mills, where Hampton and Jones* brigaded, under the itn* iacdUte;command of Stuart, with two batte ries, occupied a very strong posltition weal ot the run. The banks of Broad Ron in this vi cinity are very Bleep, and, therefore are forda ble only at a tew places. Pennington’s* and Elder’s batteries were opened with effect, compelling the enemy to move their batteries eevcrol times. After an artille ry duel and skirmishing for nearly two hours, and the Commanding General having received word that there was no ene my near at hand on his right or left, under a concentrated fire of the artillery a crossing was effected in lorce by the pike bridge. Tas skirmishers, not to be left behind, boldly waded the river,. and notwithstanding all tue obstacles to such a movement, kept up an ex cellent line, the whole command poshing for ward under a very heavy fire. The conflict, though comparatively brief here, was sharp, the enemvcontending manfully for every foot of ground, bat when they did give way, Gen. Davis'brigade, which had before been held in hand while Guslar's had the advance, mov ed rapidly forwarthpresslng the enemy above New Baltimore. While Gen- Cuataj’a com mand was taking- a nooning, a messenger came in, out or breath, to Gen. Kilpatrick, with the Information that a column of the enemy was threatening his left. Suitable disposition of the force was at once made to resist this unexpected danger by Ma jor Cock, Chief of Staff, and Adju tant-General Estes. No sooner had this been done than a portion of the 7th Michigan which hud been stationed on thtlr ffmk was forced back by a line of rebel infantry, octlcg as skirmishers, whh a strong reserve, believ ed to have been at least onefall division,(with a brigade or more cf cavalry. The-extreme dagger of the command as situated was seen at u glance by Gen. Kilpatrick, and ho dls paichedgLleut. Bickey, with orders to Gen. Davies to fall back at once, as he was In danger ot being cut off Gen. Davies h id, in part, anticipated the order, for upon hearing firirgathis resr, had fallen back to within one mile and a half of Gen. Caster’s brigade, and was there awaiting orders when the mes senger arrived. While this was transpiring, tic sth Michigan, Col. Alger, was deployed as skhmlshers to fill np the gap between the two brlgaaes, and keep back a threatened movement of the enemy to divide the com mand. A severe struggle now took place for possession of the pike—our forces trying to hold it so as to enable Davies to pass and cake up a new position, while the enemy were de termined that the movement should not be made. Having both infantry and cavalry, in this they were successful—Gen. Custar, how ever, succeeding in getting his command In safety across Broad Run, after the most desperate fighting—in which Pennington’s Battery, (Co. M, Sd artillery,) as usual, took a most Important part—firing with great rapid ity und making their guns a terror to all massed forces with which the enemy threat eted the retiring troops, though at onetime they boldly came within a very short distance of the guns, intent upon capturing them. Once across the river the bridge was held— tlongb some cf the men were entirely out of carbine ammunition, and resort was Usd to Colt’s revolvers, in which the officers took a conspicuous part. The enemy, however, ef fected a crossing some distance \o the left, and the brigade fell back fighting to the vi cinity of Gainesville, where the troops disap- Seated in a belt of limber, passing through a nc of Sixth corps infantry skirmishers there concealed, whom the enemy, not seeing, made bold to charge, and were repulsed with gi eat loss, the officer leading the charge be ing among the killed. When Gen. Kilpatrick saw that Gastar’s brigade was safe across Broad Run, he direc ts, dm m to fall bock slowly, and fighting If pursued, and then started, accompanied by an orderly only, to join Gen. Davies, whom be had notified previously by an Aid that he woe cut off, and must make -his way to the pike leading from Thoroughfare Gap to Gainesville. To many not acquainted with the circumstances, this might seem a fool hardy errand, having to recrosa Broad Run, which he did at the bridge, and to tun the gauntlet of skirmishers for more than a mile; hut Gen. Kilpatrick would rather have lost his own life on the field than to lose a brigade, the fate of which then hong In the balance; and while having the utmost Confidence in the ability and coolness of General Davies, he at the same time realized the fact that his own., pres ence would do something toward encour aging the troops, particularly as some of them had been associated with him for years. Brevidence permitting, he succeeded in reachingthe command with ten or a dozen gallant spirits, both officers and men, who, seeirg the noble conduct of their General, re solved to accompany him, without orders. Fortunately, as the sequel will show. Dr, Carpehart, Chief Surgeon of the brigade, was familiar with that section of countiy, and avoiding the main road leading fo Thorough fare Gap, reached the pike a short distance above the village of Haymarket. The difficulty of this movement will be un derstood when it Is stated that his reduced brigade was attacked ia the rear by both Hampton and Jones’ brigades, and that Fits Lee was ready to confront It on the Thorough fare Gap rood, which they expected Davies would take when cut off. When Geo. Kil patrick reached the command, he at onco or dered the Harris Light (Second N, Y. cav.,) to act as rear guard. :So hard paessed ware they In rearasuflank, that the choicest spirits, —because the bravest, both officers aha men of the command Joined the rear-guard, and nobly did they witness the onsets of the ene my, and even mocked them—while exalting at the Idea of even driving of Kilpatrick’s command—ln their beast-like yelp, and hurl id them back on more than one occasion by the sword alone. At one time the rear guard and the advance of the enemy, were all mixed together’, the enemy’s advance wearing a uniform similar to’ that worn by oar own troops, In the excitement of the moment it was not easy to distinguish one from the oth* er. As an Instance ofthis,! may state that a rebel urged Lieut. Whittaker, ot Gen. Kilpat rick’s staff, to press forward. Whita ker, supposing it was some of our own men, upbraided him for wishing, as he supposed, to press past and abandon the wagons. By 7X o’clock In the evening both brigades were in camp at Gainesville, having been engaged nearly oil day fighting a combination ofta fantiy and cavalry, with a loss, all told, as now appears— including killed, wounded and missing—not to exceed 100 men, Instead of COO or 400, as was at first reported by strag glers. And instead of losing eight or nine wagons, the actual loss is only two, and one of these got mired, and the other broke down. Kohcnes or mules were lost, lathis re treat Elder’s battery took a conspicuous part, and was handled with consummate skill. Personal. Ottawa, 111.. Oct. 24,—1n consequence of the illness oi Judge Caton, he has not been able to reply to a number of letters that have accumulated during tbe last two weeks in regard to coses now before the Supreme Court. It is not probable that the Judge will be able to attend to any business for a week, to wro* EXTRAORDINARY TRIAL. The Great Infernal Ma ' chine Case. THE PEOPLE vs. NEHE- MIAH HODCE. Indictment aidßmpaneliDg’ a Jury. The present week will be signalized, fa the Re corders’ Court, by a trial of one of the most extra ordinary cases that ever demanded the attention of a Conti of Justice—a case destined, we think, to rank among the “ celebbbs causes’* of Ameri can Jurisprudence; Although the transaction, which is to be tho subject of investigation in this trial, was at the time of its occurrence detailed at length In the Tbibunb, still as nearly a year his elapsed since that publication, a brief allusion to its most prominent points, with considerable ad ditional Information which wc have been able to collect on the subject, may be necessary to enable our readers to understand tho testimony In the case, which will from time to time appear incur columns. tsx r-umzs, The case is that of the People of Illinois vs. Kchemlah Hodge, indicted for atuemptlog the life of one 8. M. Whipple with an infernal ma chine. - rcszamxAßT transactions. Nchemlah Hodge, the defendant In the case, U a practicing lawyer of North Adams, Hass. To his legal knowledge, be la said to ucite the qualities of a sharp finan cier and ingenious mechanic, and in his latter capacity bo invented aud patented, some time about the year 1549, au imp.ovemeut in rail road brakes, which has obtained extensive use epon the railroads of the West. It appears that lu tho management of this patent the defendant has had frequent negotiations- with one Stephen H. Whipple, the history o.' which covers nearly the whole lime that has elapsed since the piteut was issued. Without detailing these negotiations, it is only necessary to say, that on thcDth of Aug., Whipple, having previously tne agency for the patent, for Hodge, in some of tho middle States, agreed to purchase territorial rights of tide agreement, after being partially executed, was subsequently abandoned by both partita, and that on the oth of Jane, 1860, Hodge arranged with Whipple tocomc to Illinois and assert his rights against sundry railroad companies, that were using his Invention without recognizing his pa tent. Whipple came to Chicago immediately, and pushed Hodge’s claims forabout two months, but on the Ist of August, iB6O, his communication with Hodge suddenly ceased, and he entered into the employ of the rail-road companies, whose claims and interests were adverse to the patent ee. THE LITIGATION. Whipple, being thus allied to his antagonists, Hodge came to Chicago', and os the 2ith -dty of March, 18C1, filed a bill oa tho chancery side of the United States Court against Whipple, together with tho Chicago. Burlington & Quincy, tho Ga lana & Chicago Union, the Chicago & Bock Is land, tho Northwestern and two or. three other railroads, for a settlement of Ida claims. The companies answered ilhat the rights under the patent wore vested In Hammond, Superintendent of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Road, and produced, iu support of their answer, the assign ment from Whipple to Hammond, of anoldagree meut between Whipple and Hodge, whereby the right in the territory in question was transferred to Whipple. Hodge replied that this agreement b&d been mutually abandoned and the writiag surrendered by Whipple, and that only by stealing could he subsequently have obtained possession of it. In maintenance of his assertion he filed a. supplementary bill for tho cancellation* of the in strument, and prosecuted Whipple for its larceny in the criminal court of Berkshire county, Massa chusetts. The Grand Jury of Berkshire found an indict ment for the larceny, and the "suits between Dodges and the Railroad companies were poshed so vigorously that on the Ist of January, 1868, they were ready for argument. tub lettcr io worms. In December, 1562 Whipple was at North Ad ams, Intending to be at Chlcago.bythe New Year. Or. the ninth of December he rccehed an anony mous letter, printed with a pen, dated the day be fore at Albany, informing him of a design to destroy his life by means of a box to bo sent to him, and warning him not to attempt to open it. The letter de scribed particularly the aizeand appeiurauec of tho parcel, and the manner In which it would be marked and directed. Whipple heard no more of tho matter till hla arrival la Chicago, on thelst of January, when he was informed that a box directed to himself had been waiting his ar rival for several days at the office of the Chicago, Bnrllngtonand Quincy Railroad depot. The anon ymous letter instantly flashed upon his mind, and he of course proceeded with caution. aTTEABXXCS OP THS POX. Upon examination, the external appearance of the box corresponded exactly with the description of the letter. According to the description that has appeared before In the colamns of the Tni bcke: ‘ It was a strong spruce box, nicely fin ished and dovetailed with the utmost exactness, weighing about fourteen pounds, the dimensions being eighteen inches In length, six in depth, and eight In width. It was locked—wrapped up in several thicknesses of strong brown paper, and se cured with stout twine. Upon the top of the bos was labeled * Two model spark arrestors m brass toe the examination and report of S. M. Whipple, Kailroad Attorney. Please notify Mr. Whipple." Upon one end was * Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Eailroad company/’ and on the other • S. Whipple, 1 the whole being printed as with a stencil.’' The box appeared to have been, and actually was shipped at New York per tbeAmef lean Express Company, on the 4th of December, for Chicago. Fastened to the top of It was a letter which had escaped the attention of tho officers of the Company at the New York end of tho line. This letter was addressed npon the outside to tho American Express Company, 124 Broadway, New York, exptessage enclosed. The inside contents were: “ You will find $l5O on accompanying box. Please mark it paid,” Tho amount named was found in the letter. MODE OP OPENING IT. Mr. Whipple did not of course proceed to open abox of which he had reason to ontertaia such ugly suspicions, with the indifference with which he would have cracked an egg. On the contrary ho took the first step in opening it, by inserting two two sharp wedges united by a transverse bar for a little distance under the cover.- He then la com pany with several others took the box to the pier, between warehouses A and B, and placed It with the wedges uppermost immediately under weights, which were raised to the top of a crame, by ropes three hundred feet long, so to give those who bandied them good lee-way in case of danger. The .weights were dropped npon the wedges ahd the contents of the box exploded in fire and smoke, with a report like a cannon. THE INSIDE OF THE MACHINE. Arrangements having been made to save' the fragments, “ a subsequent examination of It re vealed the ingenious construction of the machine. The breaking of the lid loosed a pin which held a hammer. This hammer worked with a spring, and when released struck with great force one of Smith and Wesson's percussion cartridges, which In torn fired the powder, separated horn the ma chinery by a thin partition.” INVESTIGATION AND ITS RESULT. In the Investigation which naturally followed, two experts to whom it was submitted, decided that the handwriting of the letter which we have already mentioned as being on the box, was the seme as that of the letters written by Hodge, In possession of Whipple. Upon this and other evL deuce presented to the Grand Jury, an indictment forassanlt with intent to murder was found against Beige, and a requisition for him sent on to the Governor of Slassachnsaetta, under which he was am sled and brought to thfa city. He was required to give ball in five thousand dollars, which he finally procure A Objections taken to the first in* dictment were sustained, and the indictment was quashed, but a subsequent effort of the prosecutor was more successful. The second indictment was sustained, and the case has at last come to an Issue ZHPasxLcra ▲ Jtrr.r. A crowd of spectators who were present yester day morning In tho Recorder's Court Boom where the trial was to take place, evinced the interest which the case baa excited. All yesterday fore noon, and a considerable portion of the afternoon, were occupied in the empaneling of a jury. Both- Irgoccnrredto relieve the tedium of this process, except a Jet of wit from the prosecutor. The counsel for the accused examined candi dates for'the jnry with commendable partlcnlirlty in respect to the existence of the least possible in* licence likely to prodace an unfavorable bias- They would of coarse suffer no railroad man to be upon tbe Jury, and every man as he came forward was examinedand cross-examined with regard to acypossible connection that he himself, or either of his parents, ancestors, aunts, nudes, brothers, sisters, or cousins, might, could, would, or should have with any railroad past, present or future. ‘•Have you,'* said the prosecutor, as three of the panel having passed through a protracted ordeal of .this kind were turned over to him for examina tion, “have you,” said he to one of them, “ ridden on a horse railroad for the past year!” “ why yes sir, of course I have,” said the aston ished juryman. “And you sir, have you ridden on a horse rail road for the past rear," said tho prosecutor, re peating the question to the next one “ Every morning, noon and night in the year,' l > replied the perwa addressed. “Ardyou?” Bald the prosecutor. u Every day of my life,** replied the third 036. “ PH take an three,*’ slid Knor, with a merry twinkle of hie eye, while a roar of laughter from the outsiders showed that the point was percepti ble to their vision.

In the trial of thir case the people arc*xepre sented, of course, by the vary able prosecuting attorney, Joseph Eoox, B*q., assisted,by - hta partner, Mr* Reid; while Messrs. Bates, King and Goodwin, of whose abilities it is not necessary to speak, are counsel for tho defendant. The (£r meaner, appaaranee and expression of eounteß' once of the accused, are certainly os little sugges tive of atrocious crime, as those of any person wo have ever seen fit the bar. -Be docs not look like a man, who'would deliberately resolve upon crime out of the native malignity of his disposition, or be betrayed into Is by the sudden violence of itn. pulse, appetite or passion. He looks like an able man, and does not look like a bad man; - He is a man of about fifty years of age, some what more than avenge height, with a frame wiry and vigorous, but not bulky, with a ministerial head, high and long, but not particularly broad, rounding tip largely in the regions of veneration and conscientiousness, with a high and prominent forehead, and, a genital J intellectual development much greater than the average. " The outline of his face Is sharp and well defined, bat not pain fully to, and the general expression of his conn, tenance, though every line is full of thought. Indicates rather the plain, practical character of the second class of New England minds, than ge niality and breadth of cultivation. His hair Is al most white, his face clean shaved, bis dress scru pulously scat, and his whole appearance that of a man accustomed to respect himself and to exact a t ufllclcn t amount of respect from others—in short, neither Eugene Aram nor Dr. Webster had a toy* enfemWe lees suggestive of tho assassin than No hemlab Hodge. We will add that while he areas like a man accustomed to work with energy at whatever he has to do, he docs not appear to en tertain auy particular anxiety as to the result of this tnal. As the cas c Is rather an unusual one, we sub join the Indictment for the benefit of the Profes sion. TUE INDICT KENT. State of minds, city, of Chicago, Cook connty.-ss.
