MOI’DAV, MAKCH 7. 195*
The dispatches shed bo light upon the
•whereabouts of Sherman. One reports him
returning to Vicksburg, and another that,
iiflcr remaining a brief time at Meridian, he
pushed northward towards Columbus and
and. is about to Invade Georgia,
alter forming a junction with Logan, to oper
ate against JohnstonV flank. Whatever
may be his designs, It is sufficiently ascer
tained that he bos caused the destruc
tion of the Mississippi & Alabama
BaHroao, and' that destruction aud
■devOßtation have followed In his woke, fie
*hos inflicted a most damaging blow upon the
rebellion In the very scat of its power, as is
evidenced by the rebel dispatches. Blaring
villages and wide spread destruction of ma
terials of war have marked his path. We arc
-at last making war in earnest, and the rebels
sire tasting the bitter traits of their treason.
Gen. Kilpatrick’s raid la one of the most
"brilliant and daring exploits of tbe war,
splendidly executed and fertile in
the most important results. Al
though he has undoubtedly failed
in the attempt to capture Richmond, owing
to the superior force which met him, he has
cut Lee's communications and supplies, dee
troved an immense amount of property, and
safely reached Gen. Butler’s lines aftcr.a spir
ited engagement near the rebel capital, fils
raid, like that of Gen. Castor’s, will be set
down as amongst the boldest dashes of the
young blood o£ our army, for neither Kilpa
trick nor Custar have yet reached thirty.
Their raids, like those of Gens. Smith, Avc
■rill, -Sherman, and Seymour, although they
may fail in their prime object, ore yet of the
most important character. Millions of prop
erty have been destroyed, the country they
traversed has been laid waste by the demands
of and beast; there is neither forage norfood
left. More warehouses laden with stores,
.fruitful farms and mills heaped full with grain
have been burned; railways and bridges de
stroyed. Blaring towns and wide spread de
struction, stampeding and captured slaves and
n total destruction of material of war and
jncanS'Ot sustenance Is the price the rebels
arc paying for their treason. The rebellion
•cannot endure many more such blows as this.

NEW nAWffsnmF-
Thc State election in the Granite State oc
■curs on Tuesday. It is likely to be very
<closc, and the Republicans feel considerable
.apprehensions of being defeated. The great
proportion of the soldiers from that State
come from the Republican party. The loss
from this cause it estimated at 10,000 votes.
Four or five veteran regiments will beat
home on election day, but they do not aver
age more than 800 men to each one, while
thirty regiments, and those the largest, will
not have a chance to take part in the election.
Last year the vote was as follows:

If we estimate our share of the doubtful

went to the bouse of Judge 11. W. Moulder, at the i
m< nth of James' Bayou,and after forcing entrance,
brutally murdered him. Judge Moulder was about
«ixty-fivo years of age, and one of the most honored
•uud respected citizens of Miss. Co,, of which he ■
ha* been resident twenty-five years. The Judge
had l»ocn> firm, unconditional Union man from the
first opposing the rebels and the rebellion with

him hated and feared by the guerillas, hence they ,

br. Lome. Mo., March C.—The statement made
iiv the Waahlngton correspondent of the New
TToik ComtneretaU that Sherman was at Vick—
linrpon the 24th ultimo, and that be will soon
riart on another expedition, is a great mistake.
None -of Sherman’s forces h*d readied Jackson on
Xhe S lib- and Vlckebnrg advices of the 27th mako
so mention of ids arrival there, or of any contem
plated movement,
McPherson’s corps, which reached Jackson on
the 24th, will probably remain there for the pres
ent, but another expedition will not be likely to
be mode very soon.
Fairies from Gen. Grant’s front say it is not pro
bable that anv fighting will take place there for
sometime yet. •

WAsniyoTos. March 5,1861.
The statement that Kilpatrick's attempt to take
Richmond was made in consequence of Infonna
tiern brought by Col. Straight is incorrect. The ex
pedition started before Slrcljrht’s arrival and
Straight expressed the opinion that Richmond was
inaccessible on the northern side. A tug bearing a
late dispatch to and irom Kilpatrick and Batler to
Cherrystone Inlet, was captured by the rebels..

Wahusctos, March s.—The Bfpvbtkttn of last
evening says we ere authorized to announce that
the Government has received a dispatch from Gen.
Roller, announcing that Gen. Kilpatrick succeeded
in cutting the railroad and telegraph communica
tions oi Gen. Lee to Richmond by tearing np the
raDs on the Virginia Central railroad at various
Joints, and destroying tbc canal and mills on the
tunes River. Be'bnrned modi other property be
longing to the rebels, indicting a severe mow on
the rebellion, lie was met by the enemy outside
the defences at Richmond, bnt succeeded In forcing
him inside the enter works, where a spirited en
gagement ensued, when darkness came on and the
conflict ended. Kilpatrick finding the enemy and
the works too strong to allow him to reach the city
and accomplish the object of tbc expedition, with
drew and reached the lines of Gen. Seller with the
loss of about 350 men
It Is assigned as a reason for the unexpected
alertness of the rebels in preparing to repel Gen.
Kilpatrick, tint the destruction of the telegraph and
tie track of the Virginia Central Railroad was an
nounced in Richmond, by Gen. Lee, immediately
after the occurrence, over the telegraph lines be
tween Richmond, Lvnchburg ana Gordonsvihe.
This seems highly probable, from the fact that the
expedition passed through Lee’s pickets and be
yond his rear without a skirmish, and was met at
some distance from Richmond by a formidable
force of mounted infantry.
WAsmSGTON, March s.—The President has re

■\VAonjTGTox, March i—A special dispatch to the
Dai'y C/trcnic’-c, from Culpepper to-day, says: Gen.
Cnstar, with 3,500 picked men, in light marching
order, left Culpepper Court House about S o’clock
on Satnrdav afternoon.
The Cth and £d corps marched from their winter
quarters earlier in the dav; the former halted at
Madison Court Hoa--c,and threw out a strong cor
don of pickets, while the latter bivouacked In the
neighborhood of James City, and held the line of
the Robertson’s road.
About 8 a. m. the raiders left their resting-place
near James City, and took the road for Charlottes
ville. The men had been picked from Merritt's
and Gregg's divisions, and were well mounted.
When they marched up the steep banks of the Ra
venna River, their crossing was unknown and alto
gether unexpected. Before ns (the correspondent
sa%*s) was a urge cavalry camp, the hots arranged
with mathematical precision and soldierly regular
-I*7. On one side the horses were quietly
standing: on the other side pieces of ar
tillery were parked with an the appur
tenances ncaliy arranged and in dose
proximity to the caissons. The Cth regular regi
ment of Gen. Merritt's old brigade, led the van,
Capt, Ash. with one squadron, dashed among the
comfortable looking huts with reckless Jpredjutan
• cv, and scattered the occupants in all directions,
i lie ordered the men to destroy all they could, and
• they obeved their instructions to the very letter—
neither ries nor rut-tailed flies could be found in
command. It was impossible to spice the guns, or
chop the gun-carriages to pieces, so they contented
themselves with blowing np the caissons and des
troving tbc comp. In the meantime the enemy were
relivin': with the raplditv and zealot Gad at the
call of the chief. Several pieces of artillery were
belching louh their destructive note* at audacious
intervals, and the main body of Gen. Cnstar’s com
mand coming np, the enemy were driven a short
distance to give ns foothold on the crest of the same
hm with themselves. Between our troops and tbe
town the enemy were gathering a great force; cvery
aLiner warned ns to got away as soon as possible
lest it might be onr lot to get surrounded. They
; bad telegraphed from Charlottesville to Orange
Court House that uninvited visitors were there,
and aid was needed toexpeltbem from the neigh
borhood. The answer to these dispatches came
towaid evening in*hapeof five loads of infantry.
: There was nothing left ns now bnt speedy retreat.
Horses were wheeled about, and towards sunset
’ the Ravenna was recrossed, and the bridge burned.
. All the mills that could be found In the neighbor
hood were destroyed. In returning, thcadvoncc

; brigade of five hundred men, chosen from General
■ Gregg’s division. The night was very dork, and
T ■ the rain that continued to fall was mingled with |

i Smart, with 2,000 cavalrymen of Mlckham s and
I Fitxbngfa Lee’s Brigades, was marching towards
' bis rear. Next morning, about 9 o dockvGen.Cna
tar marched on toward tbe right road, having found
It, and inarched upon it a short distance, wnen be
discovered that Smart, with his ragged hut inde
fatigable followers, had succeeded in getting into
bis rear. As thev neared Stanardsvilie, which Is
about 35 miles from the picturesque little Tillage of
Madison, the rebel cavalry were seen drawn up,in
line across the road. This meant hostility. Tor
some time the officers of onr little command were
at a loss what to do. Tbe object of their wcari
tome and dangerous raid was to draw the rebel
cavalry away from the Central Road to Richmond,
bnt they had no Intention of drawing them so
far to the rear. All that bothered onrtroonswas
the section cf Ransom’s lottery, and that slightly
impeded their progress. In general council It was
proposed to throw these two Parrott guns into the
nearest and deepest ditch; bnt Gen. Custar pro
tested. declared be would fight his way through.
He ordered a charge, which was led by mm In per
son. The rebels stood their ground manfully, but
onr two guns now opened on them, and completed
thtardleiomfimre tnnt fast causing their lines
to waver.
Thor fled hastUv. and our men pursued them
holly, bur they reached another road which afford

tu the charge, and a considerable number wound

whom fuccccded in metemg their escape.

Report HtSU He Intends to Invade
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.)
Washington, March 6,1864.
There is no harm now In stating that the princi
pal if not the sole object or Sherman's movement
was the destruction of Railroads West and North
of Meridian, in order to prevent the enemy from
troubling the navigation of the Mississippi river,
or of making raids within oar lines in that coun
New Yobk, March s.—The Washington special
to the New York Tribune says: “A dispatch dated
Memphis, Ist, received this evening, gives some
most interesting details ol Sherman's movements.
The dispatch gays: ‘-After having reached Merid
ian,' Sherman sent out scoots to feel the gronndand
ascertain whether Logan, who had started from
Florence, Alabama, to meet Mm, and Smith and
Grierson, on whose cavalry he relied to prosccntc
hii march on Selma, were advancing. Three days
ebpecd before he received any answer, but as his
army had but limited rations, by a rapid movement,
which disconcerted the rebels, he suddenly turned
toward Aberdeen and Columbus, In the richest part
of Eastern Mississippi, where his-armvwas sure
to find abundance of provisions. By this move
ment he turned his back on Selma and Mobile,
marched toward-Logan, who had already advanced
to meet him, and, by an audacious stroke of strat
egy. placed himself at a distance of abont 100 miles
from Johnston's flank, now menaced by his ad
vance.' The dispatch says that the rumor spread,
concerning the attack upon Mobile and Selma by
Sherman, was simply meant to divert public atten
tion from the real object of the expedition, which
aims at Invasion of Georgia, somewhere between
Trenton and Lafayette.
From Richmond papers, Fob. 23d to Feb. 20th,
we gather tho following interesting items relative
to Gen. Sherman's expedition:
[From tbe Richmond Examiner, Fob. 24.]
We have important news this morning from
Sherman's exj>cditiOD. An official dispatch was
received at the War Department last night, from
Gen. Folk, staling that Sherman's forces bad evac
uated Meridian, and were retreating in two columns
in the direction ot Vicksburg. It is supposed that
the Yankee Commander, finding his designs on
Mobile thwarted, and his cavalry reinforcements
intercepted, and being in distress for supplies,
was forced to abandon bis expedition! and
betake himself to the desperate expedient of a re
treat through a country ttripned ot Us supplies and
laid waste by his advance. Whether he can accom
plish a retreat with success, remains to be seen.
Tbe whole conn try from Jackson toMeridlaa is said
to be devastated. It is said that In Raymond. Clin
ton, Brandon and Jackson not a single bouse is left
sundicz except the pulilic buildings. Along Sher
man’s line of advance the forms were laid waste,
the fences destroyed and residences given to the
flames. The Yankee commander is reported to
have boosted in a speech before be left Memphis,
that he wonld subdue the spirit of the people of
Mississippi by a system of barbarities never before
practiced upon any people. These arc now llkclv
to react upon their guilty author; and bis retreat
lies through the deem he bad left In his tear.
[From the Richmond Examiner, Feb. 27.]
Our Southern exchanges brlog- osbnt little as to
the situation of affaire In Mississippi. The ac
counts we get represent SUennan’a entire Army as
certainly retreating to Vicksburg. A special dls
-patch from Be Soto to tho AJobDo Register sirs:
• An intelligent etilzen of Imtcrpttßot Haid.ijS cus
tody by tho enemy daring their star, expressed tne
opinion on tiro anny wul move “toward
After burning the bridge this side of Quitman, and
the public buildings and some private houses in the
town tbe enemy returned to Enterprise.
Yesterday morning tbe whole force at Enterprise
moved off'toward Meriden.
Another despatch from De Soto cays:
“A person from Enterprise to-day states that par
ties who have come through Meridan report that the
Tankas 'eft that p’aee yesterday morning, going
Demopoup,— Tuesday, Feb. 23. The enemy’s
forces along the Mobile and Ohio Railroad arc ma
king a retrograde movement In the direction of the
Mississippi River. Their mounted infontry In North
Miatist-ippl are also retiring, being closely pressed
bv Gecs.To rrest and Lee.
DEXorou*. Ala., Sunday. Feb. 21.—The main
column of the enemy Is still at Meridian, a de
tachment Ims occupied Lauderdale, on the Mobile
and Ohio Railroad. A portion of a column of
mounted infontry have occupied Aberdeen.
[From tho Montgomery Mall, Feb. 18.]
The enemy, on arriving at Meridian, appears to
have put on ms “thinking cap.” . For two days ho
has made no serious Advance in any direction.
Meanwhile onr army is reported to have crossed
the Tomblgbco river at Moscow, and at present, to
be In position on this side. The purposes of the
enemy are still shrouded in mystery. Everything
is mere conjecture as to Ue probable movements,
[From the Richmond Examiner, Feb. 23.]
Rumors report tbe enemy still advancing from
Meridian, but tbe accounts are conflicting in this
statement. One rumor represents tbe enemy to
have reached Cuba station, twenty miles cast of
Meridian, hat the J lississippian contradicts this,
and says:
** It is certain, however, that Sherman has not ad
vanced to Cuba Station, twenty miles east of Meri
dian, If ho had, hie stay would be short there, as
there is bat little left in Lauderdale county to sus
tain either man or beast. The enemy do not seem
desirous of venturing into tbe unproductive and
sterile, country lying between Meridian and Demop
olir. To-morrow ms; bring something definite- 1
news, perhaps, of the enemy's retreat or of his con
tinued advance toward Selma. Having met with
but little resistance thus far. Sherman concluded to
push on for Selma and Montgomery, only pausing
at Meridian to obtain reinforcements from some
other point. 4 ’
A dispatch from Enterprise says:
‘‘There has been so movement of the enemy in
this direction. The general opinion among well
informed persons from tbe vicinity of the Yankees,
seems to bo that their purpose Is to contiue their
march, centrally, toward Selma, where they expect
to meet another column, and thence move forward
to the rear of Ocn. Johnston.” ' ; ,
Per contra, the JUluitsippian of a late date says
We learn from persons from Oomopolis that Gen.
Pclk has cro-seo the Tombtebco at Moscow, ten
miles below Demopolia, with his army—with the
exception of Gen. Trench’s division, which Is at
Hemopolls. It la expected that the enemy will be
cheeked at the Tomblgbec, and that a battle will
take place there in a dav or two. The banks oftho
Tomblgbec famish excellent natural fortifications
and a splendid line of defence. It may, however,
be sound policy to allow the enemy to cross tbe
Tombigbee, If he is permitted to do so, his destruc
tion is absolutely certain, if our commanders and
troops meet public expectation. If his force is no.
lamer than the telegraph mokes It, there is no es
cape for him except through the snpmcss of the peo
ple and soldiery, or the most extraordinary want of
skin in our commanders.
[From the Mobile Register.}
A private dispatch Irom Enterprise, dated last
evening, states that our forces evacuated Meridian
gnu day morning. The Government property was
all saved, and nearly, if not all, the machinery of
the railroad company. Our troops retired in good
ordcrinthe direction oftho Tombigbee river. The
last train above on the Mobile ana Ohio railroad
passed Meridian at one p. m. yesterday, and report
ed the enemy in Rill view, just entering the town.
Tbe train was not fired on, and no effort was made
to stop or delay it.
[From the Selma Hississlpplan.]
Snnday forenoon Lee entered the place with a por
tion of hitj cavalry, and destroyed everything we
could not carry off that would he of any service to
the enemy. A cavalry fight took place in town, re
sulting in the enemy’s defeat. Lee drove them
back to thg infantry support, and that evening Mer
idian was given to them, cleared of sll ths Govern
ment property, as well as railroad cars and locomo
tives. Lee was compelled to bnm some of tbe roll
ing stock that could not be got away. •
[From the Mobile Register,]
Evcrvtblng waa eared at Meridian, including
two thousand bales of Government cotton, several
hundred hogsheads of sugar, immense supplies of
Commissary, Quartermaster and Ordnance stores.
[From the Atlanta Appeal.]
A gentleman who was with Polk’s command
when it fell back from Morton, and left Meridian
on the Utb, brings cs sorrowful Intelligence of the
ravages committed by .Sherman iu his march
through Mississippi. He is carrying out his threat
in bis late Memphis speech, that he would make
the people feel Ida power. Raymond, Clinton, ail
of Jackson except the public ouQdinus. Brandon,
and even the little village of Morton, were given to
the flames. On the route many dwellings and all
the oatbnQdincs and farming utensils were de
stroyed. ' He desires to make the people dependent,
with a view to make submission to the military
government be proposes to establish, a necessity.
The Yankees burned about ninety va
cant bouses In Jackson. Gen. Wirt Adams came
upon end destroyed about fifty wagons, killing
mules and drivers with pistols.
[From the Richmond Examiner, Feb. S3.]
We learn that in the evacuation of Meridian by
our troops, there was no loss of public stores or
ammunition, thete having removed in good time
to Demopolis.
The Inffiftippian says tbst the best estimate it
has of fbe force of the enemy is as follows: Two
columns of infantry, of 35,000 men, and 15,000 cav
alry. The advance guard consists of cavalrv,' fol
lowed by a column of infantry—then the wason
train, consisting of 1.100 wagons, guarded on either
side by a file of men four deep—then another col
umn of infantry, with cavalry m the rear.
Gen. Polk telegraphed yesterday that onr cavalry
bad cot between Sherman and his cavalry reinforce
ments, and bad probably by that time engaged
them; and he expresses a moral assurance of the
success ol the expedition.

[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Washington, March 6, ISM.
4 Changes in the command of tbe army of tbe Po
tomac were [announced as impending some days
since, and win probably be made upon the arrival
Of Gen. Grant.
- There Is good reason to believe that Gen. Meade
will be displaced. '
"" it is supposed that tbe change in the Cincinnati
Post Office will not bo insisted upon by the Depart
ment, and the present incumbent may remain.
The expedition of Gen. Kilpatrick had the effect
of scaring Richmond—nothing more.
The rebel journals contain bewildering and be
wildered accounts of tbe cavalry operations. They
record that at Frcdcricksbail the Yankees tore np
tho railroad for some distance, and carried away
several officers and eight pieces of artillery, besides
doing much other damage; that from Fredericks
hall one column moved to James River Canal, and
burned the form buildings ofSeddon, the rebel
Secretary of War, and a large number ofmllis, be
sides destroying a canal boat, catting one lock, and
damaging some Iron Works,
Henry A. Wise, who was visiting a neighbor of
Seddon, narrowly escaped capture.
Another column came to Ashland and appeared
within six miles of Richmond March Ist, and after
a two hours fight they withdrew towards Median
icsviilc, burning tho trestle work of- the Central
railroad over the Chickahominy. The rebel loss
was one killed and six wounded. Two Yankees
were captured bat no damage done them. A large
nmuber of negroes were carried off.
The Richmond Whig thinks that the design of
the expedition,besides the destruction of property,
was to release prisoners. That plan miscarried
through the treachery or Ignorance of the negro
guide, but that they won a title to considerable
boldness to say the least.
Dispatches from Gordonsvlllc say that Gen. Cus
tar did bat little damage at Charlottesville.
Tho Lake City F.oHda CMumblan has a long ac
count of the battle of 01usteen,*whlch the writer
says, that although he participated in all tho battles
around Richmond, he never witnessed a more stub
bornly contested field engagement, fasting more
than four hours.
Gen. Finnegan was in command of tbe rebel
forces, consisting of Florida and Georgia regi
Tbe result is thus cammed up: Yankee loss in
killed, wounded and prisoners 1,600, one stand of
colors, five gnus, 1,50Q stand of arms.* and a largo
quantity of stores. The rebel loss is estimated at
seventy-five killed, 450 wounded.

Fnrtlicr Concerning: Kilpatrick’s Great
New York, March 6.—The Times speckil gives
the following additional statement as to the results
of Kilpatrick’s raid. ...
Miles of railroad track on two principal roads
over which Lee transports supplies for the northern
army of Virginia have been so thoroughly destroy
ed that some time must elapse before the roads can
be put in running order again. The depots of com
missary, ordnance and quartermasters’ stores were
burned or destroyed. No less than six grist mills
and one saw mill, principally at work for the rebel
army were burned. Six canal boats loaded with
<wain, with severallocke on the James River Canal,
and the almost invaluable coal pits ntMillikeu’fl
Bend, were destroyed. .Nearly 3jo prisoners were
captured, several hundred horses were pressed into
the service, ahd hundreds oC negroes availed them
selves ot the opportunity to come within our lines.
Tee following account ftrtn the expedition after
leaving Richmond Is of interest:
At night tto command went into camp at a place
six miles from Richmond and two miles from the
Chtckahominv, at half-past eleven, Jut as tiio Con
federates were Ciiriy asleep, except those on duty.
The rebels opened with a two gun battery npoa
the comp of Gen. Dodge t s brigade, and the enemy
th n charged the camp ot the 7th Michigan. The
men, though taken entirely by surprise, seized
their-carbines and under Col.Litchfield, supported
br the Ist Vermont, Col. Preston, handsomely re--
pulsed the enemy. Several men were wounded
and Col. Litchfield is missing, and it is fcired .Is
also wounded.
General KBpatrick decided to move across' the
White House Railroad and down the Peninsula
daring the day. Captain MltchelL of the 2d New
York, with'the bulk of Pahlgren’a command en
gaged the main column of the enemy on Tuesday
night and all day Wednesday, and on Wednesday
night hovered all about the command. Skirmish
in; was almost constantly going on in different di
On Wednesday morning about 9 o’clock, a lanre
force of cavalry come from the rear of the column.
Gen. Kilpatrick was got unprepared for l&te. aud
decided to give them battle. Tbe Ist Vermont,
under Lieutenant Colonel Preston ably assisted by
Captains Grant and Cummings, aud tbe Ist
Halno boro tho brunt of ibis fight, which
lasted something over an hour white the Cihfillch.,
and otber regiments of Gen. Davis’ brigade, were
!n position to render whatever assistance might bo
necessary. Only one charge was made, and that
was by Co. A, let Me., ledbyCapt. Estes, A- A.0.,
. and Cant. Cole, when 5 of the enemy were capta
red. The enemy suddenly retired, but when the
command moved forward pressed the rear flanks.
Several times an offer or battle was made, but
they refused it. To-day (Wednesday) several refu
gees from Richmond came into our camp and re
ported the presence of Captain Wilson, ot the
, 2nd Ohio, ‘ who had escaped from
-the Richmond basilic, near at hand. For some rea
son ho did not join the command. Ou Wednesday
also lieutenant Whitaker was sent to TunstalTs
Station on the White House Railroad, hut noon
arriving there, much to hie astonishment, he fonnd
that place in flames. From negroes in that vicinity
he ascertained that n column of Union cavalry,
from Butler’s department, bad jnst left there.
This was the first intimation of as
sistance being fo near at hand. On Thursday
morning Kilpatrick moved toward New Kent
Court Bouse, and onhis way be met Colonel Spear,
in command ol a cavalry force, looking after Kil
patrick’s command.
