' There was an abundance of some sorts of produce being offered for sale, and 1 many citizens laid in 'a winter's supply. WorsDED. We saw two soldiers yes terday leading a third from the field where he had evidently had a severe en gagement and had come off eecond best, as the blood was streaming down his face. From his general movements and bearing, we concluded that he had gone into the fight backed up by John Barley corn, and had come oat, if not defeated, certainly greatly demoralized. A Close Shave. Ano:her big cave took piace yesterday in the excavation for the sewer on Locust street, which came nigh burying two of the workmen. They were about finishing the first semi- eircie, when ten or htteen wagon loads i of sand and gravel came down almost in j five young friend Henry Miller, clerk of a bcjfcgiving only sufficient premonito- , the steamer Emma, for files of late Mem ry symptoms as to enable the men to j phis papers, forwarded by mail from Darely make their escape. , Two days' progress will put them be- yond the red sand that now seems have a disposition to cave in. to Wru. Intended. A horse attached to a light vehicle, consisting of the run ning gear of a wagon with a loose board in it, with a view perhaps of giving us an item or alge disgusted at the folly of hi6 owner in leaving him in the street unhitched, concluded to take race by himself. But 'the whole affair was a miserable failure. It is true the horse ran up First street at a fair traveling gate, and may be run ning yet, bnt from the speed at which he went, we have no idea that he broke the vehicle, and we are certain he did not overheat himself. If he expected to ere ate any excitement among people on the tret or side-walk he signally failed in in his effort. Brushing Up.

The Peninsular Campaign in Virginia. Incidents and Scenes on the Battle Fields and in Richmond, bv Rev. J. J. Marks, D. D. Philadelphia . Lip pincott & Co. Evansville : John Healy. This interesting book has been on our table for sometime. It is only recently : that we have enjoyed the pleasure of ' reading it. We do not now remember I any book which the war has produced, that has given us so much genuine satis faction. Its description of places, army movements, scenes in hospitals and in the Richmond prisons, bear the iimpress of truth. It is evident from the mere reading of them that they are sketches by an eye witness. No one can read Dr. Mark's sketches without setting a higher estimate upon the value of our Government and institutions, and re. garding with warmer affection and the most unlimited admiration, the noble men who are fighting our battles. It enj nobles human virtue. So accustomed have been Our people tp look upon the or e i . sufferings of our revolutionary fathers in achieving our independence, that we fail to appreciate the fact that our own immediate fathers, brothers and friends, are enduring as severe hardships and as intense sufferings to perpetuate the Gov- erumcnt established by those noble an. t-estors. Dr. Marks entered the service as Chan- lain of the G3d Pennsylvania volunteers, which was attached to the celebrated Kearnay division. He passed through some of those terrible battles fought in the vicinity, of Richmond; remained with our wounded when they were aban doned by Gen. McClellan in bis retreat to James River, and was captured by the rebels and taken to Richmond. Ilis hook is a plain statement of what passed under his own observation during that eventful period. It gives us new ideas, nOt Onlv in reo-nrrl til tho (r nnnr-i f urlirt j -e were the most conspicuous in that blood V campaign, but also of the men whose en- durance ar.d mnr. r,,W O ' www circumstances, eclipse; glory with which History has cncir- , cled the name of Spartan. We 8hall attempt no lengthy review of : the ''Peninsular Campaign.'' It may be better studied in the light of Dr. Mark's personal experiences. His book can be found at the book-store of John Healy, and no private library in complete with- out it. Oak Hill Cemetery.

Burnside that his marches and victories in East Tennessee and South-western Virginia are eminently satisfactory, and that in almost every case the rebels have been whipped and routed. Gen. Burnside declares that there is not a more loyal people than are found in East Tennessee. New York Specials Reported Rebel Movements The Rebels Retreating Meade Pursuing Change in the Conscription Law. New York, October 20. The Post's Washington letter has a rumor that one corps of Lee's army has gone to Chatta nooga, but there are no actual facts upon which to make such a statement. There is talk in military circles of the early repeal of the $300 section of the conscription act by Congress. This will be urged in December, and it is not im probable that in the next draft that ex emption by money will be impossible. Some persons advocate fixing the ex emption price as high as $600 or even $1,500, and providing that drafted men who go to the army shall receive the money so raised in their district. This cheme is said to have originated with Mr. Chase. Special to the Post Washington, Oct 20. Everything is looking cheerful this morning. Gen. Meade is in rapid pursnit of the Rebels, who have already retreated be yond the Rapidan. It is thought that Grant will take the place of Rosecrans. It will be remembered that Gen. Grant arrived at Cairo some days ago from Vicksburg. It is impossible to arrive at the truth of this report From Cairo and Below Farther of the ColllersviUe Fight The Rebels totally Routed. Cairo, October 20. The steamers An glo Saxon and Sunny Side, with 250 bales of cotton, arrived yesterday. The Memphis Bulletin of the 17th gives additional particulars of. military operations on the Memphis & Charleston Railroad. Our forces at Colliersville were less than 500 men, without artillery, com manded by Lieut Jones, 3d U. S. Caval ry, and a member of General Sherman's staff, and not by Sherman himself, as previously reported. Opposed to us were eleven regiments, under Chalmers and Richardson, num bering, it is said 800, with 9 pieces of artillery. Our loss was 14 killed, 04 wounded and missing. Rebel loss, about 150. During the pursuit of Chalmers by Col. Hatch, the latter came up with Palmer at Ingraham's Mills, three miles south of Bahalia, when, after two hours' fighting, the rebels were dislodged from a very strong position, their guns being advantiieously posted, and their infantry well under cover. The position was carried by Col. Phillip's brigade, the 7th Illinois and 7th Kansas, leading the charge. The enemy lost upwards of fifty killed and wounded. They then retreated thirty miles South to the Tallahatchee, where they took a strong position at the little town of Wy att A deep trench had been made en tirely around the" town, and reinforce ments had arrived. The enemy occupied the river side with 3,500 to 4,000 men and nine pieces of artillery. Col. Hatch had about 2,200 men, two brigades under Colonels Phillips and Morris, and eight pioces of artillery in the center. The enemy made two desperate char ges on our right and left, which were re pulsed with considerable loss, they leav ing their dead in our hands. Night coming on the battle ceased, but about 9 o'clock Col. Hatch charged on the town, drove the rebels, panic stricken, into the river and across the bridge, leav ing in our hands about 300 rifles and seventy-five prisoners. The town was afterwards burned. During the six days' fighting and skir mishing from the battle field of Colliers ville, about 600 of the rebels wcr' killed, large numbers taken prisoners and a large quantity of arms captured. Little Rock advices of the 14th, say: The rebel army is scattered in every di rection, and an extraordinary revival of Union sentiment has taken piace among the people. Over one thousand men have join ed the Federal army at Little Rock, and the .people are coming in daily and taking the oath ot allegiance. Official reports of the capture of the Confederate steamers on Red River do not differ materially from reports already received. From the Army of tha Cum berland. Gen. Grant Assumed Command Gen. Rosecrans ordered to Cincinnati Gen. Thomas to Command hla Army. Louisville, Oct 20. Major General Grant assumes command of the armies of the Ohio, Cumberland, and Kentucky, with plenary powers. He left for Nash ville this morning to assume direction of affairs. Gen. Thomas takes command of Gen. Rosecrans' army, who has been ordered to Cincinnati and to report by letter to the Adjutant General. Gens. Garfield and Steadman arrived to night. j Amended Roles for Kufbrrlng the Conscription Act.

All is quiet at Lon don. Parson Brownlow and Horace May nard arrived to-day. The Army of the Cumberland. Chattanooga, Oct, 14. The two ar mies injfront of Chattanooga are still eye ing each other, withont any apparent disposition on either side to strike. The enemy in said to be strengthening his po sition on Lookout Mountain and Mis sionary Ridge, and rumor says he is bringing up siege guns from Richmond, to shell us out. Meanwhile, Rosecrans is awake, and our fortifications grow apace. There is no idleness here, and no indications of any retrograde move ment The rebels succeed, now and then, in disturbing our provision trains, killing mules and burning wagons, but these petty annoyances, I predict, are but for a season. Their sharpshooters lie along the river bank, concealed behind rocks and trees, where it is very difficult to dislodge them, and by that means get a fair sweep at our teams passing along on the opposite side. Thus they killed some seventy-five of our mules, day be fore yesterday; but that game will soon be played. At any expense, this annoy ance must be removed, for, at best, our means of transportation are not of the most convenient. For the last: forty hours it has been raining steadily. UTeamsters who came in this morning, report the road over the mountain is very bad indeed. Portions of the river and Railroad between this place and Bridgeport, are in the hands of the re bels who must be cleaned out before our position is a pleasant one. As to its safety there is but little or no question. So far as conveniences are concerned, we have forgotten all about them. Gen. Curtis Ofliclal Report. Washington, October 19. The follow ing was received at headquarters to-day: " Chattanooga, October 18. ' To Major Gen. H. W. Halleck: " The following dispatch has just been received from Brig. Gen.

As I pushed on after the enemy imme diately, I have not been able to ascertain the number of their killed and wounded, but it was very heavy. They were scat tered over a distance of fifteen miles from this, and their retreat was a perfect rout, their men deserting and Strangling over the country. I pursued them witn great vigor, but their horses being better than mine,l was only able to come up with two regiments at Sugar Creek left to de tain me. I made a charge on them, cap turing some 500, and scattering the rej mainder in the mountains. When I reached the river I found they had all crossed at a ford three miles above Sam's Ferry, where they commenced to cross. I never saw troops more demoralized. I am satisfied their loss in this raid was not less than 2,000. No fears need be entertained of their making another raid. Signed Geo. Crook, Brig. Gen. Commanding. W. S.

RITTENBERG, Manufacturer of the newly Invented PERISCOPIO Spectacles AND Army Field Glasses, Superior to all others now in use. SPY GLASSES, Microscopes, OPERA GLASSES, Marine Spy Glasses, SIMPLE MICROSCOPES, Hunting: Glasses, And all kinds of OPTICAL INSTRUMENTS Can be had only of No. er Main Street, EVANSVILLE, INDIANA. I RITTENBERG HAS NOW ON HANDS A . splendid assortment of Optical Instruments, which he will dispose of at greatly reduced prices ; his goods being all of the very latest Im provements in manufacture, consisting of a very large variety of Spectacles from tbe most common to the very best, viz: The finest quality of Gold Spectacles, these Glasses being constructed on the most accurate adaptation of the Convex Concavo Periscopic principles. Also, Silver of three dif ferent grades of Glasses, No. 1 being on the same principle as the Gold Spectacles. No. 2 isa Peri focal Lense ; No. S being a line Achromatic Lens, mirror shape. In addition to the above I have a fine assort ment of Steel, of the very best quality of Lenses, the frames being grooved into the Glasses. The frames are so fine as to be scarcely visible. No. 2 of steel is Perifocal. No. 3 the globules of a smoked Lense, adapted for weak -sight where strong light, snow or wind affects the vision. Thete Spectacles are a perfect preventative by use ing them constantly, causing the eye to gain its healthy power and retain It to old age. Having had very considerable experience also in cateract eyes, in adapting glasses to such vision, would impress on the minds of all persons need ing glasses of any description, to apply for such only to a regular Optician, making that his sole study and business for years, he alone being able to know from the peculiar anatomy of the eye the nature of the defect, whether arising from weak nessof s'ght, flattening of the pupil, or other misfortune occurring lo the vision. The eye be ing the most delicate organ, and of the most vital importance to the hnppiness and prosperity of man, should never be tampered with, either by the individual or by those who, for mere profit, take upon themselves the selling of Optical In struments, and who know nothing of the anatomy of the eye, or how to discover tbe proper glasses to suit the peculiarity of the different sights of those needing spectacles. Thousands have lost their vision entirely from not applying to those only qnalifled to know the different defects in each in dividual's sight, and how to remedy it by wearing the proper kind of spectacles. I. Bittenberg, having had over twenty-five years experience as regular practical optician, can assure those giving him their patronage that by applying to him thej can get the very right kind of glasses adapted to their case, and in almost every one secure good eye sight to old age. Nesr sighted persons can also obtain of him the latest improvement in spectacles suited to them, being a new invention. 1 have also the most recently new Field Glasses, with Astromical eye pieces, being very suporior to the old opera glass arrangement. All kinds ot Optical Instruments repaired at the shortest no tice ,lnd these having purchased spectacles of me, and having had the misfortune to break one of the lenses, can have it replaced gratuitously by apply ing to L RITTENBERG, 67 Main Street, Bet. Second and Third Sts., EVANSVILLE, IND. sep. 29. PROPOSALS. Proposals for Army Stores. Omn U. S. Cohmissahy or Bcbsistkxci,') Evansville, Ind , October 16th, 1863.
