[From the Richmond Enquirer, Jan. 29.]
The following extract from a private letter
explains the late movement of onr army un
der Liect Gen. Longstreet
The Yankees came np In fine spirits a few
days since, proclaiming os they advanced that
they were about to drive Longstreet out of
Tennessee. The 4th Army Corps, a part of
the £Sd, and their entire cavalry iorce, moved
up to a point between Dandridge and Morris
town. Our forces were moved down to meet
them on the 14th. After placing his infantry,
Gen, Longstreet with hlastaff moved onto
the front, and Joining the cavalry personally
superintended its movements. The enemy
endeavored by a flank movement with their
cavalry to get Into our rear. The quick eye
of the General so arranged matters as to
throw Jenkins' (late Hood’s) division in their
front, and he ordered Gen. Martin to throw a
portion of his cavalry In the rear and press
them upon Jenkins. Martin gave the order.
The enemy, without being pressed, came
unexpectedly on Jenkins, and were driven
pell-mell, os we supposed, on Martin's caval
ry. But, alast the cavalry, bv some mistake.
Lad gone around to the front of the enemy
and to the rear of Jenkins, and, of course,
the way was open for their escape, of which
they took the earliest advantage and went on
their way rejoicing.
There Is something wrong about the caval
ry officers. The material Is os good as can
be desired, bnt the discipline is wretched,
and itisalmost inefficient in consequence.
■\Ve mu&t bavca change in onr cavalry leaders.
They fall back too soon, advance too seldom;
allow their men to scatter, straggle and pil
lage, to such an extent, that, instead of a
bund of chevaliers, lighting for liberty, they
have become a loosely organized mass of ma
rauders, and the love of plundering has so far
predominated, that the limits of victory arc
often lost from the foci the cavalry is plun
dering when it should be pursuing.
A striking instance of this occurred in the
present movement. Harrison’s brigade was
ordered to make a certain movement which
promised the successful capture of about
I,OCO horees from which the enemy bad dis
mounted. The more was made, the horses
actually captured, the men In charge shot
down, but, instead of taming back the horses
under a sufficient guard, our cavaly became a
mob of plunderers, commenced rifling the
hostlers of pistols, loaded themselves with
spoils and, in the midst of Jthelr conCsuion, a
brigade of Federal cavalry dashed in, recov
ered the horses and scattered our men.
Until a severe example is made, this will
not only continue, but grow worse, until the
name of cavalryman will cany with Hso
much reproach that the truly patriotic of
their number (and there are manyj will blush
to be known as belonging to the organization.
For this evil there is but one remedy—strict
responsibility in the officers. The Command
ing General owes it to himself, to this arm of
the service, and, more than all, to the coun
try, to see that these things are redressed.
Had the cavalry been as cfficlcntaslt would
have been under a leader like Ransom or
Hampton, this would have been the last week
for federal forces inHastTennessee. Where*
ever they met our men they showed that they
were utterly demoralized, and depended en
tirely on their flcctncss of foot for safety.—
Our infantry could not follow them—the
roads arc wretched —the snow almost con
stantly upon the ground, and many, many of
the men unshod.
The infantry did all that it went to do—re
sist the advance of the enemy. The pursuit
rested with the cavalry. Had It been led
with the dash and boldness that the occasion
demanded, the whole Federal force, wagons
and alljWomd have been in imminent pern. As
it is, the movement has been-full of traits.
We now occupy and control that part of
Hast Tennessee capable to sustain onr army.
We are at present well fed. The Yankees
are on half rations, and driven back to the
neighborhood of Knoxville; their bill of
fare “will grow small by degrees and beauti
fully less,” until at last they must retire from
this portion of the State.
Our men are well hutted, in fine spirits,
well fed, and, in a few days more, will be
well clothed. After that, if the cavalry will
half do its duty, if starvation has not already
driven the Yankees out, our troops will,
rar south ok the defensive.
[From the Richmond Examiner, Jam 28.1
The time Las passed lor offensive military
operations on the port of Southern armies.
Beyond recovering lost portions of territory,
the true policy now is to risk nothing. At
first, before Maryland, Kentucky and Missou
ri were lost, wc'might have gamed much by
taking Washington and penetrating to the
centre of the enemy’s power. But we then
threw ourselves on the defensive, allowed
our soil to be invaded, consented that onr
own supplies should subsist the troops of
both belligerents, and suffered the extensive
belt between the two hostile nations, which
was desolated by the contending forces, to be
taken from our own territory. Our means of
subsistence have now been too far exhausted
to admit any other iha™ defensive tactics.
We must stand behind the wide belt of land
which war has devasted, and put our enemy
to the hazard and cost of crossing that wil
derness of destitution. We may recover Ten
nessee and Arkansas, we may carry our lines
to the bonks of the Potomac, we may prevent
the navigation of the Mississippi by the con
stant presence, at certain points, of movable
batteries of artillery; but in these, audio all
onr military enterprises and operations, wo
must observe the wary tactics of Pablos, and
win the battle by risking nothing.
Hereafter our strength will consist In our
very poverty. Onr country is too sparsely
Inhabited, scarcely supplied with food and
forage, to be successfully invaded lor an in
definite period. The war will last as long as
the North can maintain a muster-roll strength
of three-quarters of a million, and spporfc an
army of four hundred thousand men at a dis
tance of several hundred miles from its basis
of subsistence. It has become with na now
a simple question of endurance. We can
husband onr resources; we can maintain onr
armies at a standard or strength apportioned
to the productive capacities of the country;
when outnumbered, ,we can weary the enemy
and waste his strength by artful mancenvres,
attacking him in detail and de trojing him by
piecemeal; but if we undertake more, we
risk all. , „
Our territory is still of vast dimensions,
and presents no where any large accumula
tion of supplies. In the compact States of
Europe, where every foot of the soil is
brought into requisition, where agriculture is
at the maximum, where every acre groans with
redundant crops, invasion by large armies is
comparatively not only practicable, but
profitable ana self-sustaining. There, armies
move over great distances without the appen
dage of leagues of wagon trains, drawing
their food along for hundreds of miles behind
them. But the case is very different on this
I continent. A striking exemplification of the
fact is witnessed in the case of East Tcnnes-
I see, where the Federal armies arc now com
pelled to retreat from sheer want of supplies.
Yet that country is emphatically the granary
of the Sooth. The traveler will see on the |
roadside from Bristol to Chattanooga, in the
month of June, more wheat, than if he con-,
tinnes his journey on to Vicksburg, then
travels by the Southern route back all the
way to Richmond, then np the lamed James
River Valiev, and through Southwest Vir
ginia to Bristol again. The enemy have occu
pied East Tennessee only fonror five months.
They entered it In August just after an unu
sually abundant harvest of all crops had been
secured, rendered greater by the extraordi
nary exertions of the inhabitants, pat forth
under the invitation of Mr. Davis' corn-plant
ing proclamation last spring. Just after the
heaviest crop ever raised in that productive
country bad matured, our forces were called
out by Bragg, and the enemy invited to enter
and enjoy, xet they are now forced to evac-
Inate a large portion of the most productive
meat and com country in the Confederacy,
from sheer want of supplies.
The fact proves that no portion ot our ter
ritory w ill long support the presence of an
anuv. It proves that, in order to onr subju
gation, the North must transport several
hundred thousand troops over dislances of
several hundreds of miles, and support them
at those long distances with supplies brought
from home. With the South, the duration of
the war is simply a question of the conUnnad
supply of food for onr people and army.
With the North, its duration la a quartlon of
enlistment and finance—a question or recruit
ing a muster-roll strength of at least three
quarters of a million of men for their armies,
Jnd of maintaining a system of finance taxed
with the cost of transporting four or five
hundred thousand troops and taelr subsist
ence over distances of many hundreds of
“life South can hold out indefinitely, even
after all this waste and extravagance, if
onlv, at the eleventh hour, she does not go
in ad. The Richmond Congress can bringhcr
to submission in*six months mom, by coa
. scripting her present producing classes and
thrusting them into an unclad and. piled
army. The great want is more food and
clothing—a want which cannot be supplied
by multiplying months, backs and feet at the
cjptuse of the producers of provisions anil
covering. The first duty of Government is
to provide these supplies; and If they cannot
be provided except hy weakening the army,
the alternative must be adopted of resistin 0
with smaller armies, using the tactics of ha
hins and the strategy of defense.

[From the Blcbmocd Examiner, Jan. 16.1 -
Kcwspat er columns are not precisely the
best media for convening information of ft
General’s plans or purposes. Plante capl
tale and notes of exclamation are betternttea
for announcing the contemplated movements
of prima donnas than of gencralisdmoß, of
traveling circuses than of disciplined col
umns. Tet, in this war of anomalies, it is
not Impossible that deep laid strategy may be
disrassed In this nnnanal manner; and,
among a people so mock given to the emo
tions of a busy and sensational press as the
Yankees, Important military secrets may be
foreshadowed through this active reflector
of popular sentiment. Already have there
been instances in which the speculations of
the New York press have been the real shad
ows of coming events; and in considering
the iew obvious modes of prosecuting the
war, an inkling of the one adopted may really
have been allowed to come to light for the
purpose of inspiriting the hones of the peo
ple, and under the belief that combinations
of great magnitude cannot, at least In their
general outline, be preserved in complete se
There is, then, a possibility that the scheme
of a grand combined advance upon Rich
mond by three distinct lines, with over
whelming forces, announced In the Yankee
press, may be the real programme of the
spring campaign. It is in harmony with the
strategy which Grant, the alleged devisor
and contemplated leader of the operation,
has heretofore exhibited. 'The successes
which have derated' Mm so prominently
above all the Generals of the enemy, and
probably opened the path for him to seize
the glittering prize of the Presidency, have
been all won by the vigorous and unsparing
application of superior numbers—an advan
tage cud a strategy common to him with his
colleagues, bnt which he bos used to a great
er extent, and In which he has been favored
by propitious chances. Alexander, of Epi

How the Alabama was Pitted Out
and Paid For.
How She Escaped from Lirer*
pool* I
On the Ist of April, 1863, Clarence H.
Yonge, a native of Washington City, appear
ed at the legation of the United States in
London, and desired to reveal the secret his
tory of the Alabama. His deposition con
tains matter of much interest, as the follow
ing extracts will show:
I, Clarence Randolph Yonge, a citizen of
tbe State of Georgia, in tbc United States,
bite paymaster on board tbe steamer Ala
bama, formerly called the 390, and also called
tbe Enrica, and built by Messrs. Laird &
Birkenhead, la England, make oath and say
as follows:
I came to England in the steamer Annie
Childs, which sailed from Wilmington, in
North Carolina, early in February, 1802,
landed In England on or about the 11th of
March, ISG2, and remained at Liverpool until
the steamer Alabama went to sea. X came
over for the express purpose of acting as
paymaster to the Alabama. I engaged for
that purpose with Captain James D. Bullock,
at Savannah, Georgia. He bad lull authority
from the Confederate Government in the
matters about to be mentioned. Lieutenant
North had been sent over to England by tbe
Confederate Government to get iron-clad
vessels built.
Captain Bullock had been over previously,
and bad made tbe contract for building the
Oreto and the Alabama, and was returning to
England to assume the command of the latter
ship. He was directed at tbe time to assist
Lieut North with his advice and experience
In building the iron-clods, which Lieutenant
North had been over here expressly to get
built. I was in tbe Naval Paymaster’s office
in Savannah, Georgia, under tbe Confederate
government Captain Bullock, wanted some
one to accompany him, and I was recom
mended by the paymaster at Savannah to
Capt. Bullock.
I was then released by tbe paymaster from
my engagement, and was subsequently ap
pointed by Captain Bullock, under the writ
ten authority of Mr. S. B. Mallory, tbe Sec-,,
retaiy of the Navy, a paymaster in the Con
federate navy, and assigned to the Alabama.
I continued as paymaster in tbo navy of the
Confederate States of America from the time
of my appointment in Savannah, Georgia, up
to the time of my leaving the Alabama at Port
Royal, in January, 1803.
The date of my appointment as paymaster
in tbe Confederate navy was the 21st day of
December, 16CL Previous to this time 1 had
attended to Captain Bollock’s correspond
ence with the Confederate government, and
I, therefore, knew that these two vessels, af
terwards called the Oreto and Alabama, were
being built in England for tbc Confederate
government; and by the same means, I knew
that Captain Bullock, who Is a commander
in the Confederate navy, was the acknowl
edged agent ot the Confederate Government
for the purpose of getting such ships built,
There was some correspondence which I
saw between Captain Bullock and Mr. 8.R..
Mallory, the Secretary of the Navy, relative
to purchasing two English vessels which had
been used as transports in tbe Crimean war,
Captain Bullock advising against purchasing
them, os being unfit for tbe service for which
they were required. 1 wrote the letters from
Captain Bullock (which lie signed) to the
secretory advising against this purchase.
There was correspondence between Mr. Mal
lory and Captain Bullock (which 1 saw and
copied) to the effect that the money would
be reauy and lodged in England to pay for
these vessels as It fell due.
From what I know, lam satisfied that tbe
money was all duly paid as it fell dne for
these vessels. I-saw a letter from Capt. Bul
lock to Fraser, Trenbolm & Co., (a firm in
Liverpool, hereinafter again referred to,)
thanking them. Bullock kept copies
of bis correspondence, and they are deposit
ed in one of the bonks in Savannah,
From the time of my coming to England
until I sailed in tbe Alabama, my principal
business was in paying the officers of the
Confederate navy who were over here attach
ed to the Alabama, and sent over for that pur
pose. I used to pay them monthly, about the
first of the month, at Fraser, Trenbolm <fe
Co/s office, in Liverpool, and drew the money
for that purpose from that firm.
Commander, JamesD. Bollock: John Low,
lieutenant; EugeneMaffit, midshipman, and
E, M.Anderson, midshipman, came over to
England in the same vessel with myself
Capt. Bollock came over to England in the
first Instance to contract for building the two
vessels—tbe Oreto, now called the Florida,
and the Alabama. He came so to contract
for and In behalf of the Southern Confeder
acy, with the understanding that be was to
have command of one of the vessels. I have
heard him say so; and I have learned this
also from the correspondence between him
and Mr, Mollory, Secretary of the Confederate
navy, as before mentioned, which passed
through my hands.
At tbc commencement of my engagement
•with Captain Bollock I acted as lus clerk. |
The contract for building the Alabama was
made with Messrs. Laird, of Birkenhead, by
Captain Bollock. I bare seen it myself 1
made a copy of the original. The copy was
In the ship. It was signed by Captain Bul
lock. on one port, and Messrs. Laird on the
other. I made the copy at the instance of
Captain Bollock from the original, which he
has. The ship cost, in United States money,
aboot two hundred and fifty-fire thousand
dollars. This included provisions, &c.,
enough for a voyage to theEasilndies, which
Messrs. Laird were, by the contract, to pro
vide. The payments were all made before
the vessel sailed, to the best of my belief
Sinclair, Hamilton «fc Co., of London, had
money. Fraser, Trenholm & Co., of Liver
pool. had money. There was [rebel] govern
ment money in both their hands over here
enough for the purpose of paying for them.
I was over to see Die "Alabama before she
was launched Irom Messrs. Laird's yard, and
was on board the vessel with Captain Bui
lock, and have met Captain Bollock undone
of the Messrs. Laird at Fraser, Trenholm & j
Co.'s office. Captain Ballack superintended <
the building of the Alabama and Oreto also
whilst be was here. Captain Matthew J.
Butcher as the captain who took her to sea.
Be is an Englishman, and represented him
self as belonging to the royal naval reserve.
When the vessel sailed from Liverpool she
had her shot-racks fitted in the usual places;
she had sockets in her decks, and the plus
fitted which held fast frames or carriages for
the pivot guns, and breaching bolts. These
bad been placed in by the builders of the ves
e cl, Messrs. Laird & Co. She was also foil of
provisions and stores enough for a four
months* cmise. When she soiled she had
beds, bedding, cooking utensils, and mesa
utensils for one hundred men, and powder
tanks fitted in. „,
We sailed from Liverpool on the 29th day
of July, 1802. This was some three or four
days sooner than we expected to saU. The
reason for our sailing at this timb, before we
contemplated, was on account of information
which we had received thatproceedlnge were
being commenced to stop the vessel from
soiling. Capt Bullock sent Lieut. Low to
me on Sunday evening, the 27th day of July,
to say that I must be at Fraser, Trenholm &
Co.’s office early next morning. The next
morning I arrived at half-pas 9 o'clock- Capt.
Butcher came In and told me the ship (which
at that time was - called the 290,
also Enrica) would sail the next day,
and ho wanted me to go with him.
In a few minutes Captain Bullock
■came in, and told me he wanted me to be
ready to go to sea at a minute’s notice; that
they were going to send her right out I
placed my filings on the vessel on that even
ing. There were about seventy or eighty
men in the vessel at this time, under Captain
Butcher, who had been in command of the
vessel for more than a month before she
tailed. I went on the vessscl on the morn
ing of the 29th of July for the purpose of
toning. XFc started out of the river Mersey
at about half-past 10 o’clock. Captain .Butch
er commanded. Hr. Low acted as first mate:
Gfccico T. Fullam as second mate, and David
Hciiert Llewellyn as assistant surgeon.
Captain Bullock, Lieutenants borth and
Sinclair were on board; also the two Messrs.
Laird, Mr. A. E. Byrne, and five or six la
dee, (including two Misses Laird,) and some
other gentlemen whom I do not know.
'When we sailed it was not our intention to
return, but it was with the-intention of go
ing to sea, and so understood by ua all. The
Indies and passengers were token on board
as a blind.
After vc got on beard, one of the Messrs.
Laird, who built the vessel, came to me and
gave me three hundred and twelve pounds In
English gold. CapL Bullock came and
asked me if Mr. Laird had given ine the mon
ey; that he had some to give me, which I
must put In the safe. I told him X had not
received, it and went to Mr. Laird and got 1C
Laird counted it out for me, and I gave him
a receipt for the amount. Mr. Laird gave me
a number of bills and receipts at the same
time, for things he hod been purchasing for
the vessel—beds, blankets, tinware, knives,
and forks, for the ship; all of which he (Mr.
Laird) had purchased from various patties on
account of the ship. My understanding was
that the money given me was the balance of
the money left after making these purchases.
The bills and receipts which Mr. Laird gave
me on this occasion, on account of the par
chaees he had made, were left on the ship,
and were handed over by me to Francis L.
Galt,who has succeed me as paymaster on the
There was a tug boat in attendance when
wc left Liverpool on the 20th of July, in
which the ladles and all the passengers left.
Wcwn down Immediately for Molfle bay,
and lay there all that night, all the next day
ondnext night, until a o’clock on Friday
morning. I copied a letter of instructions
from Captain Bullock to Captain Butcher, In
which Captain Bntcher was directed to pro
ceed to Porto Praya, in Terceira, one of the
Azores, where it was intended that we should
go to receive the armament.
The next day idler we left, the tug boat
Hercules came to ns from Liverpool about 3
o’clock. She brought to us Captain Bullock
and S G. Porter, (who for a time superin
tended the fitting tne vessel,) and some, tup
or three men. Tne men signed articles that
night They bad signed articles before at
various times whileln Liverpool, bat they
all came up ogaln and renewed the articles.
The advance notes had been given them in
Liverpool by Captain Bntcher, and made pay
able at Canard, Wilson & Co’s. The original
articles are now in Fraser, Trcnholm & Go’s
office, but in possession of Captain Bollock,
who transacts all his business and keeps all
ofhls papers at Fraser, Trcnholm & Co's.
I do not know the name of the man who
acted os shipping-master at Liverpool. Capt.
Bullock wrote a letter of instructions to me
before wc left Liverpool, directing me to cir
culate freely among the men, and induce them
togoonthcvesselafterwc got to Terceira.
I accordingly did circulate among the men on
onr way out, and persuaded them to join the
vessel after we should get to Terceira. Low
did,tbe same.
We sailed from Molfic bay at 3 o’clock on
Friday morning. We went oot through the
Irish Channel. Captain Bullock left ns at the
Giant’s Causeway. We were some ten or
eleven doys going out to Terceira. We were
in quarantine for three days at Porto Piaya.
~ There was no transfer of the vessel, or any
thing of the kind, there. The bark Agrip
pina, irom London, arrived there with part
of the armament, all the ammunition, all tbo
clothing and coal. She was commanded by
Alexander McQueen. The first day after the
arrival of the bark she was getting ready for
discharging. This bark is owned uy the Con
federate Government, but is 'nominally held
by Sinclair, Hamilton & Co., of London, and
sallsnnder the British flag. This firm is con
nected with the Confederate Government.
Early the following day the bark Agrippina
hauled alongside, and we commenced to take
the guns on board. Two or three days after
this the Bahama arrived with the officers.
This steamer was in command of CapL Tes
slcr. She also sailed under the British flag.
The Bahama came In, and Captain Butcher
went on board and received orders to sail to
The Bahama took the bark in tow, and we
all went round to Angra. After wc got there
we were ordered away by the authorities.—
There was also some correspondence took
place between Captain Botcher and the Brit
ish consul at tb& r . place, but 1 never heard
what It was. TVcwcnt out and continued
discharging and taking in all that day, and
at night we rfnd the bark ran into the bay,
the Bahama Keeping outside. By this time
we bad got all tbc guns, ammunition and car
go from tbe steamer and .bark. Daring all
ibis time the three vessels were sailing under
tbe British flag. Wc finished coaling on
Sunday, the Slth of August, at about 1
o'clock. ‘We received from the bark Agrip
pina four broadside guns, each 33-poanders,
and two pivot guns—one GS-pounder solid
shot gun and one 100 pounder rifled gun—
ICO barrels of gun-powder, a number ot En
field rifles, two cases of pistols, and cart
ridges for the same. All the clothing for the
men was also received from the Agrippina,
and tbe fuses, primers, signals rockets, shot,
shell, and other munitions of war needed by
the ship; also, a quantity of cool.
"Wc received from the Bahama two 33-
pounder broadside guns, a bole of blue flan
nel for sailors’ wear, a fire-proof chest ,wlth
$50,000 In English sovereigns and $50,000 in
bank bills.
■ Captain Butcher, or Mr. Low, tbe' first
mate, told me that Mr. M. G. KUngenderbad
been directed to purchase, In Liverpool, where
Mr. Klingender resides and does business as
a merchant, such supplies of liquor and to
bacco as were required for the ship’s use. I
made out the advance notes for the men at
Liverpool on the 2Sth of July, 1862, while
she was lying in iho Blrkhenbead docks,
which were made payable by Canard, Wilson:
& Co. at Liverpool. Tbc half-pay notes
which I made out in Molfie bay on board the
No. 290, were made payable ot Liverpool by
the aforesaid M. G. Kliugender. After we
arrived at Angra, and bad armed tbe ship and
were leaving that port to cuter upon the
cruise, wc were still under the British flag.
Captain Semmes then had all the men called
ait on the quarter-deck. The British flag was
then hauled down and the Confederate one
raised. He then and there made a speech,
rend his commission to them os a com
mander In the Confederate* navy, told them
the objects of the vessel and what she was
about to do, mentioned to them what their
proportion of prize money would bo out of
each SIOO,OOO worth of property captured and
destroyed; said ho had on board SIOO,OOO, and
asked them to go with him, at tbe same time
appealing to them, os British sailors, to aid
bun in defending the side of the weak. I bad
two sets of articles prepared—one for men
shipping for a limited time, tbe other for
those willing to go during the war.
The articles were then re-signed while the
vessel was in Portuguese waters, bat under
tbc Confederate flag. Tills was Sunday, the
24th August, 1562. At the same time Captain
Femmes announced that the ship would be
called the Confederate States vessel Alabama.
The guns which were brought out to the No.
290 In the Agrippina and the Bahama, were
mode and furnished by Fawcett, Preston &
Co., of Liverpool. The ammunition and en
tire armament of the vessel, as well as all the
outfit, were purchased in England.
My belief Is that we bad eighty-four shipped
men, inclusive of the firemen and coal trim
mers, when we left Angra. All the men bat
three signed the articles for the period of the
war. New half-pay notes were then drawn
in favor of, and given to the men. The half
pay notes entitled their families or friends to
draw half of their pay on the first of every
month. They were all payable by Fraser,
Trenbolm* Co., with whom the money for
the purpose of meeting them was lodged.
The first set of notes (payable at Canard,
'Wilson & Co.’s) were in the form of the
British marine service. The second set (pay
able at Frazer, Trenbolm & Co.’s) were In tbo
form used by the United States and Confed
erate navy, several of the men refused to
sign and returned In the Bahama to Liver
pool. Captain Batcher and Captain Bullock
also returned in the Bahama.
We then entered upon our cruise. Out of
the oighty-fourmen I believe there were not
more than ten or twelve Americans. There
was one Spaniard, and all the rest were Eng
lishmen belonging to the royal naval reserve,
as they Informed me, and as was generally
understood by all on board. Four at feast, >f

vessel. x remained aboard the vessel os pay

near Yucatan Banks, where we lay about ten
days; where we painted the ship and recoaled
from the Agrippina, and gave the men a run

We thence steered for Galveston, where
we destroyed the United States gunboat Hat

1 the contrary, we were received with all cour

week. WhiUt we were there the English Ad

much conversation and remark amongst the
officers; and. in particular, I remember Mr.
Sinclair, the master, speaking of it. I also
know that Captain Semmes paid a return

the Alabama left Port Royal. I myself saw
him start for the purpose. My connection

Explosion or the Bennington Ponder
The Troy Times of Monday lost says:
About six o’clock this morning, just os the
Troy and Boston train was leaving Benning
ton for Troy, an explosion took place at the
mills of tho Bennington powder company, a
mile from the East village. There were five
: separate, distinct reports attending the ex
plosion, but, fortunotely, not n person was
injured by the accident Four buildings wore
destroyed—two wheel mills, solid structures,
containing machinery, the press-house and
corning mill. The cause of the accident is
not known. Every care was taken in the
manufacture of powder to guard against such
occurrences and protect the workmen. There
were only about twenty-five barrels of pow
der in the mills that were destroyed.
In tho village of Bennington tho sound of
the accident resembled a series of earthquakes.
Residents fancied their houses were about
tumbling upon their beads. At Troy, thirty
miles away, the noise was heard. At North
Adams, twenty-two miles off, plates were
jarred from tables and glasses broken.
Particulars of tbe Illness or Stephens.
The Richmond Enquirer of January 19th has
the following:
“ "We arc pained to announce that Mr. Hi
dell, secretary to Vice President Stephens,
yesterday received a telegram from Augusta,
announcing the sudden and serious illness of
Mr. Stephens at his home at Crawfordsvilie,
Ga. He was attacked on Monday morning,
and sent on that day to Augusta for a physi
cian. This attack, with the known state of
his health during the winter, has created seri
ous apprehension In the minds of his friends.
“ lie was prevented from coming to Rich
mond at the beginning of the session of Con
gress by the serious illness of his brother, the
Hon. Linton Stephens*, atMUledgsvtile; then
by his own feeble health and the severity of
the weather. When again ready to start for
Richmond his brother was a second time very
severely attacked, which delayed his coming
over a week. He was a third time ready to
leave, and would, no doubt, have started to
tills city yesterday morning but for this un
timely attack. Should he recover, as we trust
he will, It Is altogether probable he will be
unable to visit Richmond daring the winter.”

A private letter received a few days since
