THE VERY LATEST B Y T E L E Gr R, A. JE II. FROM PHILADELPHIA. Glorious News if True. Sumter Occupied by the Federals. The Old Flag Floats over the Ruins. Philadelphia, Nov. 7 The ship Salvor arrived at this port to-day from Morris Island, and brings tho most glo rious intelligence. She reports that she lay off Morris Is land on Monday, tbe 2d inst,, and left at night On Saturday and Sunday the most terriffic bombardment was kept up on Fort Sumter by three of our Monitors and Forts Gregg and Wagner. On Monday morning while the Salvor lay off Hilton Head, Capt O'Neal, of the Invalid Corps, reported that news had been received by our military au thorities that Fort Sumter was in our possession, and occupied by the 144th Pennsylvania volunteers, the Fort hav ing been carried by assault. The report was generally credited by our officers and men. It is also stated that the U. S. steamer Fulton had been ordered tolaffoff Hil ton Head for 24 hours, to convev the in telligence to New York. The news was conveyed to Hilton Head by the U. S. steamer GalW ev On Monday morning, the 2d, the dispatch boat Salvor, which has been engaged in Government transportation, has since arrived at thig port from off Charleston, this afternoon, having left there three days ago. Capt. Mott reports that Fort Sumpter had surrendered to the U. S. forces, and the old flag now waves over the ruins of the rebel stronghold. After the surrender of the Fort, it was taken possession of by the 144th Penn sylvania volunteers. The old flag has been restored on the very spot where it was first degraded.

The Democrat's Little Rock correspondence gives the particulars of the recent fight at Piue Bluff, Arkansas. The attack was made on the 25th ult., by cavalry under Marmaduke and Cub bell. The garrison consisted of about 700 infantry, under Col. Clayton, and who were fortified in the Court House square, by barricading the streets leading tnereto with cotton bales. The rebels approached from three di rections, but after repeated charges, du ring whien Clayton s artillery played havoc in their ranks, they were' repulsed and driven from the town, leaving 300 killed and wounded in our hands..

On the 1st of No vember General Hurlbut's tcouts brought reports that Chalmers was concentrating a force for another raid upon the Mem phis and Charleston Railroad. On the 2d our picket posts on the Coldwater were attacked, and Chalmers crossed at the mouth of the Tippah with a column reported be 1,500 strong, and advanced on the road toCollierville. Colouel Hatch left Memphis on the night of November 1st with three regi ments of cavalry. He camped at Ger mantown on the night of the 2d, and reached Collierville just half an hour af ter the rebels had attacked that post. The fight lasted from half-past twelve until half-past three, when the rebels were repulsed. I have obtained the fol lowing list of casualties in the 2d Iowa cavalry: Company A, Capt Charles Horton, wounded in the groin; Company B, private William Wallace, in the chest; Company C, Edward Perry, chest; J. S. Steel, leg; Company G, William Henry, face; Company H, G. C. Chamberlain, left leg badly shattered; Company I, Seargent Crawford, in the bowels; Jas. H. Reed, chest; Thomas Dublin, face and arm; Company M, privates Tbos. Patterson and T. B. Rayland, killed; Company I, two privates killed, names unknown. Tth Illinois Cavalry Company A, cor- poral Barber, wounded in head; com pany SL private Ellmer, right arm. 3d West Tennessee Cavalry Compa ny A, private John Wall, wounded in right leg. The rebel force that fell into our hands is twenty killed and four wounded, and James George, Brigadier General Mis souri State Militia, and Colonel in the rebel army; W. H. Beattv, Chief Sur geon; one captain, three lieutenants, one hospital Steward, and nine privates prisoners. General George is wounded. Colonel Hatch followed the retreating rebels to the Coldwater, where he was skirmishing with them at last accounts. Colonels McCrellis and Millner are endeavoring to flank them to-day. Colonel Hatch estimates their loss at 3,000. From Chattanooga. Chattanooga, Nov. 6. All is quiet along the lines to-day. The enemy kept up a lazy fire from a 20-pounder gun on the crest of Lookout, occasionally reaching onr lines. They varied the entertainment this af ternoon by throwing a number of shells inside their own lines. This strange conduct excites considerable comment. Last night several rebel camps disap peared from the front on our right, and information leads us to the belief that Bragg's army has been weakened recent ly, for some purpose not yeWrevealed. Longstreet's headquarters have been es tablished on Lookout Mountain, which is held by a strong force. It ts estrmatect that the reoeis nave ex pended $14,000 worth of ammunition from Lookout, and killed one Federal soldier, and wounded another. Both casualties were in the west valley. Twelve deserters from a Kentucky rebel regiment came in to-day. They report their whole regiment ready to fol low at the first opportuuity. Since Bragg has been cut off from East Tennessee, rations have been short. Since the opening of the river route, we have been in daily communication with Bridgeport, and supplies come up rapidly. Our lines of communication are perfect GROCERIES. K. . WHEELEE. AS. BIGOS. . J. Sl'lKJ WHEELER, RIGGS & SUGG, Whole 1 dealers in SALT, COTTON YARNS Nails, Window Glass, Sash, Doors, c.

EITTENBERG, Manuuctnrer 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 (Classes, And all kinds of OPTICAL INSTRUMENTS Can be had only of I- tt ntoers. NO. 67 Main Stroot, EYAXSYILLE, INDIANA. I EITTENBERG HAS NOW ON HANDS A . splendid assortment of Optical Instruments, ahich be will dispow of at greatly reduced prices; bis goods being sll of the very latest im provements in manufacture, consisting of a very large variety of Spectacles from the most common to the very best, vis : The finest quality of Gold Spectacles, these Glasses being constructed on the most accurate adaptation of the Convex Concavo Periscopic principles. Also, Silver of tnree dif ferent erades of Glasses, No. 1 belag ou the same principle as the Gold Spectacles. No. 2 is a Perl focal Lense ; No. 3 being a fine Achromatic Lense, mirror shape. In addition to tbe above I have a line assort ment of Steel, of the very best quality of Lenses tbe frames being grooved i nto tbe Glasses. The frames are so fine as to be scarcely visible. No. 2 of steel is Perifocal. No. 3 the globulus of a smoked Lense, adapted for weak sight where strong light, snow or wind affects the vision. These 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 miDds of all persons need ing glasses of sny description, to apply for such only to a regular Optician, making that his sole stndy and business for yean, he alone being able to know from the peculiar anatomy of the eye th nature of thedefect. whether arising from weak nessof s-ght, flattening of the pupil, or other misfortune occurring to the visisn. The eye be ing the most delicate organ, and of the most vital importance to the hippiness and prosperity of man, should never be tampered with, either by the individual or by those who, fur mere profit, take upon themselves the selling of Optical In struments, and who know nothing of tbe anatomy of tbeeye, or how to discover the 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 oaly qualified to know tbe different defects in each in dividual's sight and how to remedy it by wearing tbe proper kind of spectacles. I. Rittenberg, having had over twenty-five years experience as a regulsr practical optician, can assure those giving him their patronage that by applying to him they cau get the very right kind" of glasses adapted to their case, and in almost every one secure good eye siirht to old age. Ner sighted persons can also obtain of him th l.xtcst improvement iu spectacles suited to them, being a new invention. 1 have also the most recently new Field Glasses, with Astroniical eye pi- .-.. being very superior to the old opera glass arrangement. All kinds ot Optical Instruments repaired at the shortest no tice, and thase 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 I.
