A Snake Story.—“ During theTforida
war,” sai<l the speaker, “I was in the
American army. One day I shouldered
my gun. and went in pursuit of game. In
passing through a swamp, I saw some
thing a few feet ahead of me, lying upon
the ground, which bad eiery appear
ance of a log, it being some forty feet in
length, and about one foot in diameter.
So positive was I that it was nothing but
a log, that I paid no attention to it; the
fact is, I would have sworn before a court
of justice that it was a log, and nothing
e’t-e. You see 1 never heard of snakes
growing to such huge dimensions, and
the fact is, 1 never should have believed
it if I had. Well, between me and the
log, as 1 took it to be, was a miry place,
which it was necessary for me to avoid.
1 therefore placed the butt of the gun on
the ground ahead of me, and springing
upon it, lit right on top of—what do you
suppos ?”
“A boa constructor," sfti 1 one.
“An anaconda,” said Another.
“What then, could it have beens,
asked a third.

to oppressed humanity.
I stopped at Boscobel, the outlet for
the northern part of Giant county, and
procuring n horse with a buggy attach

views of my mother upon the strugg-o

I assured her that I was as pleased to

news summary.
Particulars of the Math : as
Point Skirmish.
Gen. Lane’s Kansas Bri
Washington, June 29.
The city was startled, yesterday, by
the arrival of the steamer Pawnee's news
of the attempt to plant a battery at Math
ias Point, below Acquia Creek—the
steamer also bringing the dead body of
Opt. Ward who lost his life in the un
equal engagement.
Capt. Ward was in command of the
U. S. flotilla, and was shot on board the
Freeborn, while bravely attempting to
cover with the guns of that vessel the re
treat of his small force.
He had landed them at Point Purpose;
they were erecting breastwork of sand
bags, but were surprised by nearly a
thousand rebels, and compelled to re
treat under every circumstances of dis
advantage. While sighting a 32-pound
er, he was strack in the breast by a mus
ket ball. Though seriously wounded,
he continued fire for three-quarters of an
hour. He was then compelled to leave
his post, and died in a few minutes.
Some ol the sailors who were left on
shore owing to the precipitate retreat to
boats, swam to the Freeborn, one »f
them carrying a wounded comrade on
his back, another boldly waving the Un
ion flag, which was perforated with no
less than nineteen bails before be reach
ed the vessel. Besides Ciptain Ward,
two men were wounded, one of whom, it
is supposed, cannot recover.
Captain Ward was a very efficient offi
cer, most enthusiastically attached to the
cause of the Union. His previous ex
ploits along the Potomac had won him
a measure of esteem which renders his
sad fate in this instance a loss to be de
There is a rumor to-night that a strong
expedition will be sent down to Mathias
Point, to avenge his death. It is impor
tant to our control of the Potomac. An
effort will no doubt be made to get and
hold it.
To-night nearly all the Brigade Com
manders of the army in Virginia arc
here, which does not indicate any move
ment before morning.
Col. John C. Fremont arrived in this
city this evening, and immediately re
ported himself for duty to Gen. Scott.
Washington, June 28.
Gen. Scott received a dispatch, dated
Cumberland, June 27th, from Col. Wal
lace, saying that a portion of the 13th
Regiment, while returning from Frank
fort near Romney, to see if any rebels
were there, overtook 40 horsemen and
charged on them, routing and driving
them over a mile, killing 8 and securing
17 horses. After an hour’s rest the ene
my, reinforced, suddenly* attacked us,
causing us to abandon the horses and re
treat to a small island at the mouth of
Patterson's creek, where we killed twen
ty-thieeof the enemy. We were finally
driven off, each for himself, and are now
safe in the camp.
Corporal Hayes of Company A wns
wounded. John C. Holdridge was taken
was taken prisoner and afterwards mur
dered. Two rebfl officers were killed.
The fight was very desperate, and the
above account unexaggeratad.
We have intelligence of four rebel
regiments at Romney.
Washington, June 27.
Col. Wier left here several days ago
for Kansas, taking with him Gen. Lane’s
proclamation calling on the people of that
State to rally and fill up the regiment of
his brigade, stating plainly that his pur
pose is to put down rebellion wherever it
may be exhibited, and to sustain all Un
ion men without regard to State or loeal
itv. Senator Lane has received his com
mission as Brigadier General. In addi
tion to two or three regiments heretofore
accepted from Kansas, he is authorized
to raise two others, consistmg of twelve
companies of infantry, four of cavarly
and four of artillery. The Colonels of
those two regiments are Wm. Weir, who
served during the entire Mexican war,
and the well known James Montgomery.
Gen. Lane will occupy his sent during
the entire extra session of Congress. He
expects to take command of his Brigade
about the 20th of July.

of the usurpers; also to defend all loyal I
