killed. The balance lied i:i all directions,
leavin;; their arms on the lieffl. Gov. Jack
son viewed the battle from a distant hill,
and fled for arU unknown after the defeat
of his forces."
A light has taken place at several points
in the neighborhood of Washington, and the
prospect is that there will be warm work
there before many days elapse. The first
regiment of Ohio volunteers was fired 011 by
the rebels near Vienna, abonl -I miles from
Fairfax, 011 Monday niht, in which ei'ht or
ten were killed the killed, wounded and
missing amount in;e; to about twenty. It ap
pears that the train, upon which the Feder
al troops were being, conveyed in the direc
tion of Vienna, was fired upon from 3 mask
ed balUries, which commanded the road,
and which had not heretofore been discov
ered. Anions tho number killed was Mr.
U.in:es, editor of die Cirelevilie (O.) Ih rahl.
There lias been a skirmish also at Con
rod's Ferry, on the l'obmiae, not far from
.( es.hur;;, iu which the rebels were repuls
ed with a slight loss. Gen. l'attcraon'a di
vision baa been ordered back to Washing
ton. Gen. Duller seems to bo making a for
ward movement from Fortress Monroe.
There was a report that tlio rebels intend
ed to attack our troops at I'hiHippa, Va., Imt
it needs confirmation. The Ohio 20th occu
py the road between Wheeling and Graf
ton; the 19th and 22nd are stationed on the
road between Farkersburj.1; and Webster.
The Cleveland Ila-ald uf Monday states that
on Sunday a fleet of twelve liht-diauyht
steamers passed down the Ohio river from
I'itU,l)'.irr. Tlii y were chartered by (he
Gevernnienl, but their exast destination was
not known. It supposed their movements
are some way connected wilh a project lo
rout the Bcecssitm camps up Kanawha riv
er. We shall watch, with interest, for the
result of this expedition.
Thursday's Dispatches.
The news from Western Virginia indicates
lively times for the Government troops.
The rebels have taken post at Piedmont in
large force, a place abuut 2i miles west of
Cumberland, burning a railroad bridge and
cutting off coiiunuuieatiou between the In
diana Zouaves and the main body. The ex
a.t stretujth of tie enemy is not known, bul
it is supposed to be between five and six
thousand strong. The bridge was guarded
by 40 Marylanders from Cumberland, who
had one field piece. When the rebels ad
vanced, they poured shot into them until
their gunners were killed. All but two of
the defenders are reported killed.
No advauee has yet been made on Vienna
or Fairfax. The Federal troops are now en
camped where tho batteries were located
which fired into Col. Sehenek's Ohio regi
ment. Fairfax has been evacuated aa well
as Vienna, by the rebel troops. At tho lat
ter place they destroyed all the railroad
buildings and much private property, the
latter belonging to Northern men. JJrowu-
1 11, the avenger Col. Ellsworth's assassina
tion, has been appointed a Lieutenant in the
regular service. Gen. Lee, Jell'. Davis und
Beauregard were at Manassas Tuesday.
There is 110 doubt but that the rebels arect
ing batteries at important points on the Po
tomac. They hope to control the naviga
tion of the river, and expel Federal vessels
from its waters, closing up tho connection
with tho North except by Annapolis. Per
sons arrived from Richmond (state that the
rebels are making gigantic preparations for
the dc fen uo of Lielunond. It tieeiiis as tho'
the fust great stand would bo made at that
place. Masked batteries are placed at ad
vantageous points, and not less than oO.OOO
rebels are in about the city,
A special dispatch to the St. Louis Re
publican gives further particulars of the
battle at Hooncville, and the dispersion of
the rebels. The Federal troops landed fiw
miles below tho rebel encampment. The
latter had a battery near Huoneville, point
ed towards the river; but it was circumven
ted by the Federals and proved useless.
Gen, Lyon immediately advanced on tho re
bels, and was met in a lane where the firing
commenced, lialanco of inscription sub
stanii.dly as given in yesterday report. It
is believed that the number killed is quite
small. An account, represented to bo offi
cial, puts the number killed at 20, and Fel
eral troops 2 killed, nine wounded and one
missing. Tho rebels numbered 2,000 and
it is said lost 1,500 stand of arms, a consid
erable quantity of ammunition und stores,
and a number of horses nnd mules. Gen.
Frico resigned and went homo previous to
the battle. Gov. Jackson is supposed to be
in Arkansas. It is thought tlio rebels will
mako a stand at Lexington.
Tho Chicago Tribuneh&R intelligence that
Col. Curtis' 2d Iowa regiment, learning that
there were secessionists ut Savannah, Mo., 'M
miles north of St. Joseph, who had driven
out or imprisoned nil tho Union men in tho
towu, went there on Monday, with -100
troopH, and at'ler a slight sorinirn:'..''

Friday's Dispatches.
The indications of to-day's dispatclyvs are
really war-like, nnd a great buttle in Mast
rrn Virginia is possible any moment. The
movement of troops from Washington into
Virginia, Thursday ccning, was a lively af
fair. Heauregard is reported to I e advanc
ing towurd the Potomac Well, we sup
pose we shall have to wait another day for
some thing really exciting.
Interesting from California.
Late advice from California state that the
Legislature adjourned on the 20ih of M iy,
hiving been in session loil days. A bill
1 O'OV i i ! le- for o il'i'. ':ll
ert'.oll ol IlV.'inoers
e.'eate 1. A bill to
of Con-.;c- i had been
district the Si ue on the basis of the l.i-d
ictistis, for members of the LegislaD'.re, be
came a 1 r.v. It reduees the representation of
the mining counties, and gives the prepon
derance of power to the ngrieultmv.l dis
tricts, the former having declined in pop'.'.
lation. The coal mines of Mont Diablo ate at
tracting much interest. Mont Diablo is for
ty miles N. 11. of Sin Fran is, o. The mines
are found iu a western spur of the moun
tain, which juts out toward the San Joaquin
river. These deposits are most easily work
ed. As far as explored, they lie at an ele
vation of from -100 to 1,200 feel. No water
has appeared in any of the cins. The one
upon which most labor and money have been
expended, is the Cuuibei land, which is gel
ting out and (-.ending to maiket twenly-live
tons per day. The total consumption of
coal in California is ascertained to bo about
tr'lUIOt) tons, of which 72,000 tons weio im
ported last year.
Military movements are beginning to be
active. Col. Liiipitl, a hero of the vigilance
war. is en leavoriug to raise a hatlnllion to
be offered t t!i'.' Govcriimenl. Col. J. I
Stevenson lias written to the I res-ilenl, ol
fering to reel nit a regiment which will be
ready for active nervice, shortly after he re
ceives a letter ol acceptance. I lie seces
sionist' had protested against the founda
tion of I'nion clubs, and threatened t i
organize themselves into opposition clubs,
lit lie- nests of trujeon and rebellion. The
I'nion dub niratigemeitls were continued
notw ithslandii!
eveial thousand had
joined in San Francisco, 1,200 in Sacramento,
and in every town and mining- camp a club
for the I'nion was about being formed.
The San Francisco 7'inns charges that
Gov. Downey conspired, a month or Iwo
ago, with certain seeeilei s, to take California
out of the Union : that an insurrection was
agreed on, nnd that Gen. Shields oll'erred lo
dike command of the army to bo raised.
Ni ilhcr Downey nor shields have many re
ply to this charge, but the Governor has
authorii d a reporter to soy (hat it is untrue.
Interesting from California. Sketch of Gen. Scott.
The Chicago Tribune i-oys thai el. feeble
iu body, but clcariiilnded and vigorot n iu
intellect as ever, Genera! Scott is now cheer
fully undergoing labors that would overtax
the strength of many far his juniors in H'e
and in service. An early hour finds him
surrounded by aids and advisers, and 110I
until a late hour docs the woik euuo. Tho
bustle and din of the cily and camp arc
hushed at nightfall, but not for many hours
later does the head-quarters of the Lieuten-aut-Gcneral
lose its features of activity.
The scene on the day in question was one
on which the pencil of a Leitlze would dwell
lovingly to the production of u painting
that should bo vivid history. General Scott,
suffering more than usual by an attack of
the gout, lay half reclining upon a lounge
drawn into the centre of a large apartment,
his feet resting upon pillows.
About the old chieftain, whoso massive
frame seemed more impressive from the
contrast, wero gathered men in uniform of
army and navy, eminent citizens in the plain
black civilian's dress, while hero and there
one whose dress and features told of rough
service on r-ome errand, whose results were
now to be reported to the modification or
comprehensive plans of Iho War Depart
ment. On (ho wall opposite the lounge occupied
by General Scott were suspended two large
military maps of Virginia and Maryland,

The history of our glorious old ling is of
exceeding interest, and brings back to us a
throng of snored and thrilling nnsooiatioi'.'i.
The b tuner of St. Andrew was blue, charge 1
with a white ullier or cross, iu the form of
the letter X, and was used in Scotland as
early as the eleventh century. The banner
of St. George was white, di nged with the
red cio;s, und wn used in F.agl.ind as early
as the (irst pal t of the fourteenth eentuvv.

Tills ro.-.tthiiloil was ion le prl lie Sop!. ;,
1777, an 1 die i.og Inil was ;it 111, l ie and
used in pursuance of it was that which led
Pie Americans lo victory at Saratoga. II -re
the thirteen stars were arranged in a chi le,
as we sometimes see then now, in order
belief to oNprcs (he idea of Iho I'nion of
Ihe St o.l 'S. In 1 7!1 1, there hav ing been two
more new Slates added to the I 11iot1.it was
voled that the alternate snipes, as well as
iho circling' slurs, be fifteen iu number, and
the llag as thus altered and enlarged, was
the one which was borne through all the
contests of Pie war of 1 S 1 '. Put il was
thought that the I lag would al length become
too large if a new .stripe should be added
with every freshly 11 hnitted Stale. It was
therefore enacted, in 1818, llial a permanent
return should lie made lo the original num
ber of thirteen stripes, and that the number
of 1, tars should henceforth, correspond to
tho growing number (if Slates. Thus liie
llag won! 1 syniliolcco the I'nion as it might,
be al any gixen perio I of iis history, and
also as ii was at the very, hour of its birth.
Il was ul the same time suggested 1 1 1:1 1 these
stars, iii. ilea. I of being avr iuged in a circle,
be firmed into 11 silicic star a suggestion
which we necu'.ioiii.ily sec adopted. In line,
11 parlii ul.ii- order seems now lo bo observ
ed wiili re-pec! to tin.' an c.Ugcincli! of ihe
eon.,le!!,;lion. Ii is enough if only the whole
number ho there upon dial a1. tire fold---the

n I 111.-,:
each Mar to glortiy
it max- 1 epn .-.cut, and
Ihe glory of iho S
the w hole to be ohioo.etii forever of a Union
that must be 'one and inseparable.'
Time would fail me lo enter more largely
iiilo Ihe delailt; of this history, llnoitgh has
been said to show, iu some satisfactory
measure, the sources xx hence the materials
of our llag xvere drawn. Tho old banner ol
England contributed its colors. Great men
mudc it their study. Washington, Franklin,
Morris, Adams, Sherman, and many more of
their immortal compeers, gave it their Iho't
and (are. And Pun it Ice U to be male
fact iu the world by tio conllicts, bloodshed,
and victories of a seven years' war. It is
Iho flag that was gazed upon by the patriots
of 'Iho times that tried men's souls.' Jt is
the llag xvhieli they bo;o and followed into
the thickest of the 'light. It is Ihe ll.ig which
I hey loved and honored, and whi'-h al last
they compelled their proud enemies I 1 ac
knowledge ami respect. 1 1 is the llag which
became Ihe symbol of our national indepen
dence and glory.
And what precious associations hai'O clus
tered around il since! Not alone have our
fathers net up this banner in the name of
God over the well kuoxvn battle fields of Pie
J'cvolution, and over the cities and towns
which t'cy rescued from despotic rule ; but
think where also their descendants have
carried it reel raised it in conquest or pro

smoke it has passed what storms of shot
and shell what scenes of fire and blood!
Not alone at Sir.itoga, at Monmouth nnd at
Vorktoxvn, but nt I. mule's l.uiio and New
Orleans, at lleuna Vista and Chepultapcc.
It is the s.uno glorious old llag which, in
scribed xvilh the dying xvords of Lawrence,
"Don't give up the ship," was hoisted on
Lake Krie by Commodore Perry just on ihe
eve of his great naval victory tho same
old llag which our great chieftain bore iu

Fugitive Southerners.
Tho Philadelphia XortJt American says
A nentlennn extensively acquainted iu
the Southern Stales, infoniirs tin that a this
moment over one thousand Southern Union
gentlemen are sojourning in this city, for
safety from the armed rabble now dominant
in Southern cities. These parties are from
the Mississippi eillcs, from Memphis to New
( Ir'caus. and from probably every inland cily
iu the sluvchol ling Slalee, They are men
of substance; who have lied from the tur
moil of so. esslon io the peace and quietness
of Philod iphia. Many of them have losi
large sums of money, and have reconciled
tilt mselves to the lo-s. We saw such
gentleman last evening, v. ho left iu Nexv
I trie. ins a large anion:, I of real eslaie, and
and lied xvilh nothing mo;e than Ihe money
he had in bank al iho time the double com
ineueod. Dos;. iie Ihe idea to Ihe eonlrary.
he declares that a strong t'nion feeling pre
vail:', in New 1 hleaus, but liie terrors of liie
assassin's knife ovi rawo all demonstration
of patriotism.
At this very moment, says our informant,
life and property in Nexv Orleans, Natchez,
Memphis, Vicksburg and oilier secession
towns are no more secure than in the least
civilized portion of tho F.eropcau continent.
The principal incentive to the abandonment
of his home xvas the outrage upon a neigh
bor, who, tor no other crime than loving the
Union, xvas horribly mutilated at liie hands
of a self-constituted vigilance committee.
At Memphis the laws are now inoperative,
and any man bearing emuiiy toward aiiothcr
may successfully denounce him as an Abo
lilionist, unless he possesses greater inllu
uicc than the iuforio.inl.
We learn those facts from genllemcn now
residing at one of our ho'.els, who consider
themselves fortunate in escaping wilh life
from ihe eninii y of the rebel rabble. In
the South there are but two men who dare
to speak out for tho Union, and tho.,. nun
are Pa:srut Proxvuloxv, of Teiine see, und
George D. Prentice, of Louisville, Kentucky.

xx ho told him they were going to hang him
forllixviih. The 1 o or old man thought they
xvere jesting, and said : " Gentlemen, sure
ly you don't mean what you say; 1 um n
poor, old, gray-headed man always havo
worked hard, and made an honest living ;
surely you would not hang me for the ex
pressions of my oi l hone, t heart." Tlio
poor old man could not b 'iicve that tho -demons
cotif I porpedato such a murder until
he felt the rope around his nock. Tho end
of ihe rope xx.is thrown ever the limb of a

Several xx ho were coyimandcd to assist, slunk
away iu horror and dread. All theso deeds
xvill soon be avenged. These men regard
not even gray hairs, the sacred rights of

A correspondent of the Sandusky Regis
gives the. following particulars relative
to the culinary department, at Camp Denni
son :
Tho building is 1 10 feet in length and 40
in width, is well veiitdlated nud forty men
are employed iu baking. A tinn in Cincin
nati has the contract for furnishing the flour
an 1 1!. A. Cooper, of the same cily, the bak
ing. Sixty bands of llour aro consumed
every day. Each loaf weighs tw o pounds
and two ounces, and is the ration of two
soldiers. Six thousand loaves nro turned
out daily. A well hut; been sunk in tho in
terior of tho budding fifty-live feet deep.
There are six largo oven ranges, with all tho
conveniences of an extensive bakery, beneath
which a lire is constantly burning, und each
oven bears a very euplioneous title. No. 1
is " General Scott ;" No. 2, - Fort Sumler ;"
No. Ii. " Mount Vesuvius ;" No. 4, "ViV Des

"Jerusalem." In front of each oven are largo
bread troughs, one of which was of but lit
tle service, and the name of "Jeff. Davis "
was given to ii, with a picturesque view of
the op! traitor wilh lump around his neck.
Slaughtering T,tablislimenls have commenc

have everything handy. Tho bread is now
of good quality and fresh. We nie ufraid,
however, that if the fierce here is soon b'art
