The man who thus dared to tritie
wdfaic of his country, when it became cv
ident that ono of the most important ob
jects would prove a failure through his
wilful connivance, was immediately hang
ed upon the spot, thus raeetiLg a fate he so
richly deserved. The command had mo
ved forward to fax within the enemy's
lines long before any alarm was given to
the authorities at Richmond or Gen. Lee,
and wiicn it did become known in Rich
mond that a force of Uuiou cavalry had
crossed the Rapidan, so secret and well
planned had been the expedition by Gene
ral ricasonton, and so well executed by
Gen. Ki!pat;:ek, they had not the most
distant idea of its wh.Mcabouts, when, in
fact, the command was at that time alraoft
within sight ol Richmond, and a fun hours
later was burling leadeu messengers of
death from a battery placed insiU the de
fences of that city into its very suburbs.

THE LOSS OF THE HOUSATONIC.

(From th Army itiol KaWJ t'azettr.J
As a hiatoiy of the recent disaster of
the U. S. steamer fit -usatonic may be of
interest to many of your readers, I will
attempt a biief statement of facts:
Ou the evening of February 17tb, tho
llousatonic was anchored outside the bar,
two and a half miles from Breach Inlet
battery, and five miles and three-fifths
from the ruins of S i inter
: ion on the blockade. T!
her rsuu sta-
liero was but lit-
tie wind or sea, the sky was cloudless and
on the blockade two or three miles away.
The usual lookouts were stationed on the
forecastle, in the gangway and on the

' slight disturbance of the water like that
produced by a porpoise. At that time it
j appeared to be about one hundred yard
' distaut and a beam. The Quartermaster
j examined it with his glass and pronounced
it a school of fish. As it was evidently
ncaring thc ship, orders wero at once giv
en to slip the chain, beat to quarters, ami
call thc captain. Just after issuing these
orders, the Master's Mate from the fore
rastlfl renorted tho snsnicions AnnMriincs
j to tho olHeei. in chargc. Thc officers and
men were promptly on deck, but by this
time the submarine Machine was so near
us that its f u: in an l tho phosphorescent
light produced by its motion through tho
water were plainly risible. At the call to
quarters it had stopped, or nearly so, and
then moved towards thc stern of the ves
sel, ptobably to avoid our broadside gura.
When the Captain reached our deck, it
was on the starboard quarter, and so near
as that all attempts to train a gun on it
were futile. Several shots wero fired into
it from revolvers and riflec; it also receiv
e 1 two charges ol buckshot from the Cap
The chain had been slipped and the en-
I giaes had just began to move, when the
; Ctnab came, throwing timbers and splin

! immediately followed by a fearful rushing
of water, the rolling out of a dense, black
smoke from thc stack, aud the settling of

the boats, and the men sprang to tho work

sistance was promptly rendered by that
vessel to those rem a n ing on the wreck.
At muster next mommf, five of onr
number were found oiissing. The Captain
was thrown several feet iuto the air by tho
force of the explosion, and was painfully
but not dangerously bruised and cot.
It was the opinion of all who saw the
strange craft, that it was very nearly or
entirely nnder water, that there was n
, smoke stack, that it was from twenty to
thirty feet in length, and that it was
noiseless in ber motion through the water.
' It was not seen after the explosion. The
ship was struck on tho starboard side
abaft the mizzen mast. Tho force of the
explosion seems to have been mainly up-
ward. A piece ten feet square was blown
out of her quarter deck, all the beams and
canines being broken transversely across.
