On Uie night of October 2Sth last, when General
Geary’s Division of the Twelfth Corps repulsed the
attacking’forces of Longstreet, at IWauhatchle,
Team., a number of mules, affrighted by the nolae
of battle, dashed into the ranks of Hampton’s Le
gion, caasing much dismay among the rebels, and
compelling many of theta to Call back under a sup
posed charge of cavalry.
Capt. Thomas E. Elliott, of Gen. Geary’s
sends the following rendition of the incident*
which he gleaned from an interior contemporary.'

Mt Dear Charley: Your favor of the 4th
inst, is before me. It gave me pleasure to
learn that you bad arrived safe and was en
joying yonrseit My friend Cammack is here
and stays with me at Glen Cove, L. L He
■wishes me to bo remembered to von will
find yon If he goes to; England. I have not
• leceivedyonrletter, sent to the care of G. B.
, I vntten him aline this morning,
asklnc him to forward the same to yonat
Glen Co vc. I have called at his office, but no
Carhart to be found. There are parties here
from Atlanta, Georgia, making an effort to
cmry out your suggestions In reicrence to
taking in and bringing ont a caigo. They
have consulted me, and if their plans accord
with my opinions. I shall go in. When I see
your letter, now in the hands of Carhart, I
may get some new Idea, as I fancy something
is said of the enterprise in that commtmlca*
.lion. If the Yankees want all I shall not go
I hnt if equity is their guide, I shaU take a i
quarter Interest for yon and myself, and send
a man at once to your Mm all
the particulars. * * jfr * *
, I message to Dick Bus
tccd. The draft took place yesterday, and I
presume is still going on. Up to this time
there has been no trouble, and from the fact
of Gen. Dix having such a military force In
and about the city, I fancy there wiUberio
d s ;? r J a ? ct r has been seen, but I
cant find lum. Ido notbelievebe wiilshow
himself in hew York again. 11l however I
am find him, I win get the three JL; I sup
§ose it was Confederate money. As regards
ic clothing, boots, &c., if he don’t pay I
will turn him out naked. Charley, I can’t
say anything in reference to the war that will
interest yon. Charleston I don’t believe will
fall; still lam often wrong: this week I
think, will tell the tale; the whole force is
now at work, as jon will perceive bv the
New York papers. There. Is nothin'- of im
portance from the army of the Potomac. I
sill see Susan and Carhart. If von should
be short let me know and I will send it at
once. If yon me any point about'
stocks do so. Gold lam confidct will go to
fifty in three months. Don’t fail to write
me. I wish I was with you. Yours tmly,
if. C. TROWBRIDGE.

lady love and her sister for himself and the
subscriber to dine at Dclmonico’a this the
20th day of August I don’t feel like it The
weather is too warm and there ain’t any good
place there, so I shan’t go. Tt would do you
§ood to see him raise his arms and picture
ae meeting between his ladyandMmselfon
her arrival thqre. She is a stunner, and for
fear you won’t believe me I will Inclose her
carte dc visitc. Sendit back to me without
iaiL Shespcnt last winter in Havana with a
sick husband, since dead. Cam. Is bavin" a
i good time, and so did your humble servant
before he got here. “lie that is robbed, not
wanting what is stolen, or knowing it not, is
not robbed at all.” So I thought 1 would go
Id. Of course he thinks her virtuous, and as
it wm do him no good to inform Mm to the
contraiy, I kept shady on the subject. To
night he will have lots to tell me. She is one
ol the F. F. V.’s, and nothing else induced
Cam. to take the risk in coming here.
A NEW TORE REBEL’S OPINION OP HATTERS
• AND THINGS IN GENERAL.
New York, Aug. 87,18*3.
Mr Dear Charley; I wrote you some
days since and told you all I thought of at
the moment that would be of the least In
terest Since writing you we have the report
that Sumter has been crumbled by shot and
shell, and I very much fear that such is the
fact: and in the absence of any knowledge of
the defense after the tall of Sumter, I, like
every one around me.'am forced to the con
clusion that Charleston must fall Into the
hands of the enemy. It will be bard. Indeed,
but I still have the hope. The people in this
country are all of the oplMon that, with the
fall of the war is yell niphits
lam of your opinion, and believe that rids
war will only end with the independence of
the South in some shape. I have great hope
that France will at once come to oar aid.
She will, I doubt not, have settled the Polish
difficulty ere this reaches yon, and I have
been informed that the Polish tronble alone
has been the cause of delay an the port of the
Emperor.
Can’t yon see Mm, and Impress upon Mm
the impropriety of allowing twenty millions
of people to attack and destroy one-third of
their number, who only desire to withdraw
from any farther association with them ? If
we had been properly represented abroad 1
from the beginning of onr troubles, I am sat
isfied onr ports would now be open. That is
all we want- Well, I fancy you will do all
yon can without any suggestions from me.
The Yankees do not like the movements of
the French in Mexico, and say when they get
through with the South they will turn their
attention to Mexico. Wc shall sec. Fro;u
all 1 can Jcnm, l fear there Is some trouble in
North Carolina: .but I fancy nothing of a se
rious nature. Let me know about the grain
crop of Europe. ‘ 1 learned to-day from Hr.
Parsons that Briggs paid Mr. Putnam the
three thousand. Sir. Parsons showed me Put
nam’s receipt for the amount, dated 20th
April. Consequently I shall hop on Briggs
so lor as that amount is concerned.

Editor Missouri Republican:
On yesterday morning the 81st nit., at half
past 7 a. m., wc left New Madrid*. Mo.,Uound
for Memphis. At that hour it was raining;
at B>f it commenced snowing; at it com
menced freezing, with high wind; by lOWtho
wind became so furious that we saw that it
would be impossible to keep- from being
blown ashore. I stood on deck all of
time, and had the boat held quartering to the
wind until wc had blown within SOOfeet of
the Missouri shore. At this point we cast
anchor, and were fortunate enough to have a
food anchor and a good chain. The storm
eld us stem up stream for twenty-four hours.
Alter the anchor was made fast and the ex
citement was over with me, T started for tho
cabin. At this moment I found that my
clothes, my fiu'c and hair were one solid cake
of ice. But this was of but little importance
to me, as the boat was yet surging Use a mad
bull or a wounded tiger, and the temperature
growing colder and colder. The wind now
had a fair and unmolested sweep of over ten
.miles at ns. Wc had fears of being tom loose
from our anchorage, so we kept up steam uli
Ibctimc. But now for a proof of the Inten
sity of tbc cold. Onr machinery is so arrang
ed that the engines exhaust steam into the
chimneys, but before the steam would or
could reach the chimneys Roll turned Into
water, (being condensed) then tho water
would run down over the breeching and over
the fire doors. In doing this it froze, 1 and
cakes of ice as huge as a man’s body made io
the breeching, and icebergs seven feet long
by ten inches thick closed npi the fire doors.
All this time it was growing colder and cold
er. Daring the night, onr starboard engine
froze up and bursted the head out. The stand
pipes that stand under tho boiler, and are at
all times filled with hot water, froze up and
bursted. On Friday morning, January Ist,
the weather became calm but the cold was
Intense. The fog would freeze and turn into
frost, and blow as thick as snow and would
stick to cvciylhing it touched. Now, for a
beautiful sight; an iceberg In the Mississippi
river. Tho chimneys stood like pyramids of
fine snow. Each guy rod was from four to
six inches in diameter, and not a break or
dark spot to he seen ob (my part of the boat,
as this frost penetrated evety pari of the deei
room and every airhole about the cabin. It
would have been impossible fora man to have
lived one hour on the forecastle of the boat.
At Caruthersvllle, five miles below us, the
thermometer stood twenty-two below zero,
and at the point w here we were exposed to
the blast, with a ten mile sweep, it certainly
must have been forty degrees below zero.
On a plantation near where wo lay, every
bog on the place froze to death, and a great
many cattle. * The ice is now fast making all
around us; ,it froze during the night solid,
from onr boat to tbc shore, a distance of 300.
icet; but thank heaven, we arc all safe once
more. Suffering will certainly be no name
for the Intense distress that will be brought
upon the people of this country where sup
plies cannot be had. , Respectfully, :. >

purpose of electing delegate’s to a Convention

and overwhelmed you with the horrors of civil

ambitious and bad men, who usurped the authori

to their i-onutry,. whose glorious emblem 'was the
striped banner with its united galaxy of Si stars,-
tin ong width that one named “ Arkansas ” shone
with an effulgence as bright and as pure as any in
tbe bine Held of tho Union, and caused them to
trample It into tho duet, and erect a new one. un
known to fame, and declined to be as fatal to those
who wa'kcd under Us shade, as that of the tihled
upas tree.
, The false promises of tho demagogues who se
lect! your sons have been unveiled, and Instead
of a glorious now empire, where prosperity would
outshine the old one, yon have been called to wit
ness tho destination of your civil government,
with no restraints to anarchy but military power.
A false doctrine has been taught In the South for
thirty years, that patriotism was confined to a sec
tion, instead of the glorious Union, An unnatural
hatred has been cherished against a part of your
countrymen for whom you should have felt only a
brotherly love. All tho parts of onr Government
—land 01 rivers and laud of lakes; land of moan
tains midland of plans; land of forests and laud
of pxalries: land of granite andlano of gold; laud
of oaks and land of tiowcrs-all, all are necessary
to do united in one glorious tnms-Ailantic brother
hood, to make ouegreat nation, capable of support
ing a great free government, strong • enough to
withstand tho shock of despotic power, which has
constantly threatened ns rrom the old world.
And now my fellow citizens, with 3} years of
training in the school that you were a peculiar
race, understood the Bible a great deal betterthau
too rest of mankind—hada corner-stone for a new
empire of more solid substance than that which
upheld the old one—who could be surprised that

I'oii who were wise, many of you had your

admonitions, and took a fital resolution

In tho attempts which have been made to

the historian has been deprived of much val

that lince that- stronghold of the rebels has
teen wrested from them, we should any

liction which - way the canse of that protract
ed succession of tcrrlbTe'battles for its cap
ture.' While the -contest was pending, for
getfulness of its origin was a blessing. But
the writer of history may as well look Into
the face of tbo horrible fact that the necessity
for military operations at that point gre t out
of the most inlamous dereliction of duty
with which the service of our suffering coun
try.haa been outraged. .
At the time of the battle of Baton Bouge, Au
gust sth, 18C2, the rebels bnd not a guu in
position, nor a flag flying, at Port Hudson,
Dapger was experienced irom guerillas at
Grand Gnlf, and occasionally at other points
on the river. But the river was practically
open, irom Ylckaburg to its mouth.
• From the advantages of its position, now
well known, it was plain enough that Port
Hudson was the most eligible place for forti
fication below Vicksburg. There is the beat
of naval authority, for the assertion that a
single gunboat, stationed opposite the town,
could-have .prevented the rebels from en
trenching themselves there.
.There were gunboats which could well have
been spared for . that purpose. - They were
employed to no purpose worth mentioning

np town of Donaldson villo ? WmU tozoard
the spotless loyalty of the proud ani
city of Plcqueminc? • CUSBIC
The whole fault is the more aggravated
Jfrom the Cict that the commander of the
fleet then in - the* lower river was early noti
fied of the enemy’s design to erect batteries
at Port Hudson, by Capt. Wm. D. Porter,
then of the XT, S. gunboat Essex. The same
advice was communicated to the Navy De
partment under date of August 20,1853, by
the same officer. But .not .a vessel made its
appeaiauce at the menaced point • The
rebels were allowed to commence operations
there, and to continue their work without
molestation, until their stupendous fortifi
cations were complete, defying as strong a
force of army and uayy as tncy supposed
could ever be spared to bear upon them
• It was then (March, 1853,) that Admiral
.Farrogut made the heroic attempt to take
his fleet past the batteries. Where then was
the magnificent triumph that waited upon
lus passage of the forts below New Orleans,
eleven months before ? His flag-ship,the Hart
forihwith two small vessels, were success
ful. The noble steam sloop-of-war Mississippi
was destroyed, and the rest of the fleet was
beaten back with considerable damage. That
the services of those vessels which passed
were of great value as contributing to the
final glorious result, Is not doubted.
The army gradually gathered its force, and
the siege was commenced. The whole trage
dy is fresh in the public mind, except Vie fint
act. It was a vast and terrific endeavor to
reduce a most formidable stronghold, where,
eight months before, was a mere deserted vil
lage, scarcely noticed by us as we passed it
on the river. The tolls and sufferings and
carnage of n besieging army, in hospital and
lu Held, unknown to any buttbe soldier,were
borne for months, and longlnto midsummer,
under an almost tropical sun. Thous
ands of our soldiers perished before
those batteries. An unusual proportion of
brilliant officers .were slain. Who shall tell
in how many homes of our land the very’
light of their lives has been extinguished,
where the sad hearth is their memento of
Port Hudson ?
For ten weeks, from the middle of August,
18C3, Adnilial Farragut with his flag ship was
at Peneacola The late Commodore Morris,
ofthcrensccolo, and Capt Smith, then ol
the Mississippi, each, at different times du
ring the Admiral's absence, had command of
that portion of his squadron which was in
the river below Vicksburg. To one of those
officers Capt. Porter must have communi
cated bis knowledge of preparations to
fortify Fort Hudson. As his gun-boat,
the EsscTj was an iron-chid, which
none of Farragnt’s vessels were, it may
be asked why did not he tak*e upon himself
the responsibility at Port Hudson? The Es
sex had become detached from the up-river
fleet, by her famous passage of the Vickabur'
batteries and first contest with the ram Ar
kaneas in July of that year. Captain Porter
then received a commission to cruise at dis
cretion between Vicksburg and Now Orleans.
It is not probable, however, that this reliev
ed Admiral Farragut of a single responsibility
on the game waters.
Many wretched misdeeds In war may bctol
crnbly excused by saying it were easy enough
to see what might have been done. But this
monster refuses *to bo pacified with any
such potential-pluperfect.
Those who were In the service on the river
in August, 18€3, will generally remember —it
was plain enough then—what could and
should be done to avert the calamity; but it
soon passed into what might have been. How
is it that this has been lost sight of? Is
there never to be any. public inquiry into and
calling to account fur it?
Far from the writer bo the desire to detract
from the honor dne.to the gallant old Admi
ral, or to cast a promiscuous slur upon the
three other distinguished officers named;
tmt'thc foregoing statements arc facts: and
it is his hope that they may so direct the his

Hudson, he can begin at the beginning

Massschnsetti aza Virginia, and varieties of soil
adapts > totheprodnetsof New England and thoae
of L e Middle Mates. The black soil In the centra]
portions of the State la the richest known,
duces the finest corn, wheat, soi ghnm and bay. which
latter crop, during the past year, boa been highly
muneretlve. The seeding of these prairie lunna to -
tamo grasses, for pasturage, offers to farmers with
capital the most profitable results. The smaller oral*‘

portion or the State, produce the best cf winter
wheat, tobacco, flax, hemp and fruit. The laada
still further South are heavily Umbered, and here the
raising of fruit, tobacco, cotton and the manufacture
of lumber yield largo returns. The health of niiaMa
Is hardly surpatscaby any State In the Union,
The Farms Offered for Sale.
Tte Illinois Central Railroad Lands are aQ situated
within fifteen miles of its Road, and extend the whole
length of the Sute from North to Sonth. for ali

Grain and Stock'Eaiaing.
In the Hat of corn and wheat producing States, Ha
noi* stands pre-eminently Uric. Its advantages tar
raising cattle and bogs are too well known to require-.
cod'n.ent bet e. For sheep raising, the
part of the State arc well adapted, and Illinois cod'
now bocst of many of the largest docks in the cooo- -
try. No branch of industry offers greater Induce
ments for Investment. - *
Hemp, Flax and Tobacco.
Hemp and Aax can be produced of as good Quality
at any grown in Europe, fobaccoof taoAaeatqoaU
ty is raised open lands purchased of the Company,
and It promises to be one of the most Important,
cropsot the State. Cotton, too. Is raised, to a con
siderable extort. In the southern portion. The male--
log of sugar from tbe beet Is receiving considerable
attention, and experiments upon a large scale havw
been made during the past season. The eoltlvatloa•

pears and strawberries, together with early rears
lablrttare sent to Chicago, 9t. koala and Cincinnati,'

ready sale. • •
Goal and Minerals.
The immense coal deposits of HUnoU are worked
at different points near the Railroad, and tbe great
resources of the State In Iron, lead, zinc, limestone,
potters’clay, ct'-., etc., as yet barely touched, wtu
eventually oe the source ot great wealth.
Lumber
Is pnrepased at a low price In Chicago—lower than 1
m any other great market of the United States—amt
there are a large number of saw-mills erected near
the line of the Railroad In the Southern part of the
State, so that there la no difficulty inproouHngbuild*
log materials, and at prices lower than In almost ur
other part of thecountry.

children may crow np with all the beneAts of educa
