Early yesterday morning, a dog foaming at the mouth and from bis peculiar actions supposed to be mad, dashed into a private boarding-house, and crouched under the table. ' The lady of tbe bouse was much alarmed, acd a soldier was called in witn bis bayonet, to route-the dog. Ought not the police authorities f abate the nuisance of so many loose dogs in the city ? General Mavlleek. The concentration of large forces at impor tant poin'.s is the science of war, and tbis none of our Generals understand better than Hal leek and McCleilan. When the campaign opened in Kentucky, in February, every available man that could be spared in the Northwest was sent there by Ilaileck. Tbe country at that time was discussing the propriety of J im Lane's expedition into Ar kansas, Texas and New Mexico, and a large force, with tbe necessary supplies werecollect ed to forward, as was supposed, the redoubta ble Lane's raid. Lane was not a favorite with Halleck, neither was the expedition considered by him necessary. A representation to the War department of the unfitness of Lane and the necessity of the troops elsewhere removed him from the field, and sent the troops to Ken tucky. Gen. Hunter, then in command in Kansas, sent forward, upon the requisition of Gen. Ualleck, the army then there, and thus was a force collected sufficient to attack Fort Donelson, compel the evacuation of Bowling Green, and, in a short time, of Cqjumbus. lie bad men enough to drive the rebels from Kentucky and bold the State. Then pushing his army southward with all possible speed, be cooped tbe entire rebel force ia the south west at Corinth. Of the immense work done by him in mov ing his heavy guns from Pittsburg Landing, and in opening roads and tbe transportation of supplies for bis large army, only those can judge who were on tbe ground at tbe time, and saw the almost insurmountable obstacles he met in pushing his army from tbe Landing to the front of Beauregard's intrenchments. It is stddi y newspaper military gentlemen that be shuu"idhave attacked Beauregard in his intrenchments. Such an attack would have been rash and foolhardy, but it bas seemed to us that a larger number of tbe rebel army should have been bagged after the evacuation. However this may be, one thing is plain, that he has attacked no place that be bas not held; iis movements have all been forward move ment!, and the old flag under bis direction was triumphant in Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee. ... . - , . ... ' Tbe order and method of Gen. Ilaileck are remarkable. The proof of tbe m is found in the system infused by him wherever he has bad command. Tbe confusion in all depart-, ments when he arrived in St. Louis speedily gave place to exactness and method. - Under him the Quartermaster's and Commissary's Departments were made to perform in the right time their appropriate work, and fraud hid its face. His terse, vigorous language be trays a man of quick and keen perception. Such he undoubtedly is. .' . ' ' Tax Nxw Kesertojr is Central Park. Tbis great work is nearly completed.

Tbe Federal troop at Mar freesboro consisted of tbe 3d Minnesota, Sib Michigan, infantry, Hewitt's Artilly of ax pieces, and four companies of tbe 7th Pennsyl vania cavalry, most of the latter being out on a scout, at the time tbe Confederates made the. attack. r From the most reliable information We can vet it appear that there war three regimentTof Texas rangers and two regiments of Georgia cavalry, under the command of Gen. Forrest, and that they made tbe attack about 4 o'clock Sunday morning, first upon tbe camp of the ; Pennsylvania cavalry, and then opou the camp of the 9th Michigan. - It appears that the Confederates bad reached their camp entirely unawares, and poured a deadly volley into tbe tents where the men were sleeping, killing and wounding a large num lr. Tbe Michigacdera then, with all possible haste, formed themselves into line of battle; but it was soon discovered that they were menaced by an overwhelming force, who fired another volley into their ranks, and tbey im mediately surrendered. This regiment num bered about 700 strong, and were armed with Enfield rifles. They were commanded by Col. DufSeld, who was wounded. The camp of the Third Minnesota regiment was nearly .two. mile diAAat. j Iaimeai ttely on bearing tbe firing. CoL Lstr formed his men in line of battle, and took position near Hewitt s battery, and in h meantime dis patched an orderly to atce'tain tit cause of tbe firing; but before tbe order J returned, the sutler of his regiment arrived from the direction -oi, the firing, and informed Col. Lester of what bad been going on. Scarcely had be imparted tbis infoimaticn before the Confederates came dashing into tbe direction of tbe battel y, which repulsod them with heavy loss. The Confederates made a second charge on the battery in the course of an hour, and were again repulsod. ,, Shortly afterward the large mill owned by Spence & Con situated m the suburbs of Mur freesboro, was discovered to be on fire. Capt. Hewitt opened hi batt ry in that direction, supposing tbe Confederates to b there, and threw 147 shells in that vicinity, with wbat effect we have not learned. Subsequently, the railroad depot and the residence of Mr. Jordan, a prominent Union man of Murfreesboro, were discovered to bj on fire. Capt. Hewitt opened his battery in tbe direction of these fires, throwing a dozen shells per bour, for about eight hours, tbe ob ject ap parently being to drive the Confeder ates away, and thus prevent a further destruc tion of property by conflagration. About an hour after Capt. Hewitt stopped firing, the whole Confederate force made a dash upon tbe battery, driving the infantry supporting it back, with a Iocs of seven men killed, and capturing tbe battery. - VV betber ammunition had given out, or the movement was so unexpected and rapid as to prevent Capt. Hewitt from firing, we have not learned, but it appears he was compelled to relinquish his whole six pieces without being able to spike his guns or injure tbe carriages. Tbe officers or tbe 1 bird Alinnesota regi ment, which had retired about a quarter of a mile, held a consultation as to tbe best course to pursue, and feeling that they were unable to inane a successful delense against so large a cavalry force, determined to surrender, which tbey accordingly did about 2 o clock in tbe af ternoon. Tbis regiment numbered about 500 men. xne privates stacxea tneir guns, and the officers threw their side-arms into a pile, and, as they marched to tbe rear, tbe men struck up Yankee D-XKlle," and chtred lus tilv for the Union. Up to the present writing we have beard of only two men belonging to Capt. Hewitt's battery and about a dozen or the Minnesota regiment, including the sutler and a negro steward, who escaped. It is believed, however, that most of tbe .Pennsylvania cavalry, who were out on scouting duty, will escape, as they were alvised by a courier of the state of af fairs. Tbe Federal 1js in killed and wounded is thought to be over 200, and about 1,900 priso ners, including Uen. 1. 1. CritiCulen, of Indi ana, who bad but recently been appointed a Brigadier General, we believe, and assigned to command at Murfreesboro. It is said that in the charges on Capt. Hew itt's battery, the Confederates were terribly decimated, and their loss in killed and wound ed is variously- reported at from four to six hundred. It is reported that the Confederates cap tured about sixteen hundred stand of small arms, over 5,000 pounds of ammunition, near ly one Hundred tents, a battery of six brass pieces, and a Irge number of horses, mules and wagons. A considerable amount of com missary and other stores were destroyed by the burning of the depot. The sutler ot tne lbird .Minnesota Regi ment suffered to the extant of about $5,000, having lost bis whole stock. ' ' ' Msj. fceibert, or tne Tin Pennsylvania Uaval- ry, is a prisoner, and reported wounded, capt. Laslegton, and Lieuts. .Rhodes, BaechteL JSm- steia and Child, ot that corps, are also known to be among tbe missing. ' 1 The rezular morning train irom JN ash vine experienced a narrow escape from captuie. It bal passed x lorence, nve miles tbis side ot Murfreesboro, before anything was known or what was transpiring ahead. The engineer was hailed and informed of the fight that had been raging all tbe morning. Just as tbe train ceased motion a sbeil whistled over it, and tbe conductor believed that be was surrounded : but an investigation sat "lifted him that it was a stray shot, and that be was in no danger as vet, when the engine was reversed, ana tbe train speedily brought back to Nashville. ' By tbis raid the Confederates have possession of tbe railroad and telegraph beyond Mur freesboro, and we have no definite information as to their movements. Tbe Kxcltemeat im XasavtUe by Oavr.

Tell the rebels that you are determined to have free govern ment, and you can give it." s , LXTTEEFEOI MR. COS WAT. YlLLOW SPRINGS, O July 11. Ed. Conn: It seems to me that even in your systematic work of aiding all that would rivet the chains ot the African race even at tbe moment when the waves seem parting for its path to freedc-nij and none but a Pharoab could pursue you might shrink from the cruel sneers and flings contained in your lead ing Vditarials of yesterday. If what you say were the truth, it were a ba?d, bitter truth, and considering themilions of human brings whose hopes are extinguished by it, would seem to call for sorrow rather than Sircasrn in its ex preswion. f ; j - But I beg tu criticise some of its' statements. In objecting t Mr Grin.es' bill calling for an employment of miiitit "without rfernce to color, yoifintimate : . 1. That its chi. f c.nceru U U lug in the nogro. "The suppression of the rebellion is tbe tail end of the kite." It would but be do ing justice to llif ciiiioon sense of your read ers to acknowledge that it might well be re garded a a trcng a-i!iury measure if we could ttke several millions now working with and for the rebellion, and obtain tbeir labor with and for its suppression. 2. You intimate that a proclamation calling out the black militia could not reach the blacks of tbe Confederate States. But thews who have not been so indifferent to the condi tion of tbe slaves in times past know well that there are lines of Nature's telegraph running throughout the South, and as soon as they are given the authority they will see that the blacks hear it. Al any rate your decision makes it safe to try it on. . I am at a loss to know why coravrvativee sheukl be so violent in denouncing tbe proclamation - which the radicals crave, if, as tbey say, it would have no access to the negroes and no effect. 3. You say it would destroy all oar unity in the border states. It would be an admirable detective of every treacherous heart in those States ; for no true patriot would prefer the handful of slaves owned by loyal slaveholders a few thousand at the highest estimate to the security and triumph of tne nation. And even setting the matter at an extreme, if five hundred thousand whites in the border States change sides after such a measure, it would pay us for their lots in bringing to our side three or four times their number in tbe blacks, whose freedom would from that moment be identified with the victories of our fUg. : 4. xoutnen maice your most extended ar gument, based upon the antipathy to tbe negro in tbe free States. But to tbe extent of your argument facts do not bear vou out. In Gen. Hunter's Department all the free .State are represented, and indeed his- regiments are somewhat more from the Northern aristocracy than ethers. let he has employed blacks in every capacity along with bis soldiers, and bis negro regiment is in full blast. By his letter to Congress, and by the letter from bis De partment in the .New lork press, we ascertain that there is an entire and even enthusiastic support of bis policy in his ranks not one ofiicer or soldier objecting. There are two or three other points where the same results have attended the enlistment of blacks. , ... - , Tbe point you add to have white regiments and black regiments separately would not suit Mr. U rimes, since that would be ictiA reference to color, is a misapprehension of bis plan, which is to call out the milit.a (not to arrange them) without reference to color. i. You sneer at the idea of negroes being good soldiers. In this you set aside the ver dict, derived from experience, of Napier, Jack son, and even waibington, wbo all found that they were particularly good soldiers, and have left their testimony to the same effect. It is universally admitted that the blacks under Toussaint were never surpassed in fighting abil ities, and that to this day the negro troops of Hay ti are equal to tbe best French and Spanish. 6. As for your concluding paragraph, con cerning tbe treatment which the negroes used by the United Mates should receive, 1 would fain hope that it was written with your devil at your elbow calling for "copy," and that you finished up tne article nastily. i.ise one might nave to conclude that another Kind or devil jogged your elbow as you wrote. Is it sufficient to satisfy an honorable man that for tbeir labors it is enough to give them their victuals and clothes ? If that would not be just to you or roe, by wbat principle should we call it justice to them 7 " Tbeir condition would be no worse off than with their mas ters. Certainly not, nor would it be u we sold them on the block to raise money for the war. You would bave them "impressed, and without wages ! Then if they earned more, we should compensate them by " giving them their freedom at the close of the war." Until then we hold them as the nation's slaves ; we take their work by force without wages, and pav some of them with their liberty. The po sition assumes that their liberty is ours, as if it were so much money. . Will you please snow us the titld of the United States to the bodies and souls of these negroes? - On this principle a robber might take from a man all bis monev. and then "settle the claim " at the end of the struggle' by giving him his life. I do not feel much interest in these Oil's tor confiscating the negroes, or arming them. They will not put oown this rebellion; cor will anything but a fair and square law which will make to every slave in tbe South the crrouad he stands on, a Canada. Tbe slaves would sot, by an edict of freedom, be praa tically freed much, if any sooner, than by the present course of things ; but, in case every one had the righ. to seek and maintain his freedom, to strike down all opposition to it, and be sustained by the law in it, slavery could only be held in the South from that in stant by force of arms, and there are not enough arms in the South to hold oa to four millions of slaves, and resist tho American aims at one and the same time. As f the objection that the slaves would not bear such a proclamation, I would respectfully suggest that tbe anouuonisu would attend to tnat pan of tbe business. There is a certain old man, whose soul is marching on. rho will bear the tidings of liberty to every cabin and planta tion of the South ; for he lives in the heart i of thousands, who may not have his serve. but ache to do what he did, could they do it lawfully. L ntu then, this nation is like swimmer in his agony, who refuses ths hand stretched out to him because it is black; and the silence of all the civilized woild, which would be otherwise speaking out in our ben half, may be interpreted as saying, Let him drwm.- ...
