the satisfaction of its patrons. It will be
our aim to make a creditable and valuable !

Tbe details of the great battle fought near
Culpepper Courthouse, on last Saturday, be
tween the federal armies of Generals Banks
aud Pope, and the rebels under Stonewall
Jackson, are sufficient to determine its char-
acter. Gen. Bayard, of McDowell's corps
witb bis cavalry brigade, had been engagedf
on Friday, on the extreme advance, near
the Rapidan river, skirmishing and maneu
vering, killing some and taking somo prison-
er3 euding, with slight loss, in baffling the
fft'a of a larSe forc8 t0 uonod and cut
them off. Saturday morning he was en
gaged for some hours before Banks came up ,
and with four regiment cavalry, he delayed
and embirrassed the enemy's advance. The
rebels, under Jackson and Ewell had cross
ed the Rapidan in force, and their advance
guard, lo.COO strong, was attacked by Banks
about six miles south of Culpepper Court
house. The fight was almost wholly with
mery at nrsr. nut me iniaoiry uecan.o
eng-i-ad about six o'clock, and a determined
on1 mot bloody contest ensued. Banks'
right 'ler Gen. Williams suffered severely,
Tho rtbcl position was in the wods, while
the troops which attacked them were oblig-

i about 6 o'clock that it became evident that
the rebels were attacking in force. The

From tho N. Y. Express, Aug. 9
There has baen a great demand for pas
sage tickets to Liverpool, Dublin, Hamburg
and Breemen, and many of the intended
voyagers sold out bouses, lands, stocks and
household furniture to leave the country .
This desire appeared to be increased by the
Government order issued last evening, for
bidding all persons liable to military duty,
from leaving tbe State or County in which
they resided, and a rush to the European
ticket offices was the consequence ending
in disappointment to many who would Tain
be under the Bniisb.Gerraau, or French flags
till our civil war should be concluded.
One of the steamers most liberally pat
ronized was the Etna," as she was adver
tised to sail to-day at noon. Her dock is at
the foot of Spring street, North River, and
this moruiug it presented many extraordi
nary scenes, which must furnish abundant
material for the historic annals of our time.
The police were out, in tho words of one
of them, "bright and ecrly" to accomplish
the desire of our Government, to retain cit
izens of the Republic on our shore. Many
of tho would-be passengers, who would
have gladly stowed themselves in the spa
cious vessel, had their purpose thus over
thrown. At 10 o'clock, a vast crowd of both sexes,
and all asres and conditions of lilo, gathered
on the dock, somo having emerged from
vehicles where the "Jehus" is posed a spe
cial tax on their departure to the exorbitant
price of the trip.
Ba22h?e of all kinds, in boxes, trunks,
portmanteau-; bedding, bound in patchwork
quilts, household relics of family furniture;
women with bonnets slurg carlessly Over
their shoulders, fainting with hf.it; men of
all ages, melting with perspiration, and nl
mosfovercome with excitement, children in
their mother's arms, peevish and cryiig;
boys clamorotu were all witnessi-d in jux
taposition on the olilong dock to the sde
nf which the Etna was moored. Many oi
tbe strange crowd roamed up and d.wn to
discover some point by which they milit
set on board without being subjected t the
scrutiny of the police. Th.-y were disap
pointed, however, for the officers sentinelled
every point of ingress.
The only entrance to the ship was by the
central gang-plank. The rush at eleven
o'clock to get on board was terrific; so much
so, that tho officers after using tha utmost
forbearance were oblige. 1 to draw batous.
Still the concourse, many of them women,
pressed forward with such force that the offi
cers were obliged to clear a sp.ice by which
the male pa.-scnizers might bo examined as
to the right to leave in the ship On the in.v.n
deck of the steamer directly opposite the out
side fficers were other policemen, who nar
rowly scanned tho passengers as they pro
ceeded, j-iy fully, and sometimes defiantly,
to their respective berths iti the ship.
Many of the p.i'sengcrs presented pj?s
port3 but the police, it was stated, refine 1
to recognize such of them as were dated
within the hist ten days. An Irishman, of
s'out build but d iininutivo stature, teeming
with perspiration, his back, arms and hands
loaded with a wonderful assortment of bag
gago, succeeded, near noon, in getting en
board the ship. Those who were not so for
tunate, and who were in possession of the
secret, spread the Celt's movements from
tongue to tongue, till it reached the police.
A search was soon made, and the Hibernian
was discovered, luggage and all, and ordered
to go on shore.
In Brooklyn, during tho past week, a large
number of families have been settling up,
and picking up, preparatory to their depar
ture fjom the city, to avoid tho draft. In
fact, tlio eioilus from tlio citjr become ro
2re3t that somo portions were about being
depopulated, and landlords were looking on
in consternation. 1 hose leaving were prin
cipally foreigners, though many bad been
naturalized and were liable to ba drafted.
It is thought that nearly enough have al
ready got away to have made a regiment,
and as mary more were making prepara
tions to leave some for Germany, some for
England, Ireland, Scotland s.nd Canada.
Property has been sold at a sacrifice, and tho
proceeds turned into realy cash.
Oue gentlemon, residing in Bocrnm street,
disposed of $30,00'J worth of property this
week, and has paid a high premium to have
a large amount of bis money turned into
gold, intending to take his departure for Eu
rope at the earliest moment. The number
of persons who have disposed of their busi
ness in Hudson avenue, to leave the coun
try, is astonishing. Liquor stores, grocery
and other stores bave been sold out, either
at a great sacrifice or under the auctioneer's
flag, so that the owners might get awiv. A
man whokepta little gin mill near the Xavy
Yard gate had saved up $500 in silver, and
sold out his place for 300, which ha turned
into silver, and was to leave the city to day.
Two conductors on the City Railroad had
resigned their situations, and were also to
leave to-day, but the order of Secretary
Stanton has interfered with the plans of all
these runaways.
Many Irishmen are endeavoring to claim
protection as British subjects. It is needless j
to say that the orders from tho War Depart

upon the hearts of some who had indulged
in the hopa of bidding adieu to this land ot
troubles. They were ready to exclaim, in

What terrible troubles might have been
avoided had its eloquoncp and prophetic
warnings been heeded!
We have read of two bitter foes meeting
on a plat of ground, beside a deep precipit
ous chasm. They engaged hand to hand,
steel to steel, in the strife. One of them at
length, feeling that Ihb opponent was getting
th e better of him. grappled in, and strove to
bear his antagonist to tho ground. They
struggled, they wrestled, the bent back wards
and forwards, and swayed on either side. In
the fierceness of the strife, they approached
the edge of the cliff. Suddenly one of them,
by a mighty effort, and Hinging his whole
weight and strength towards the brink, bore
his foe ot.ward, and, in a deadly embrsoo.
they both fell crashing, bloody, lifeless,
down iuto tho abyss below.
After all the blood and treasurp, toil and
puftering;afterall the prayers and watching,

the glorious results, and rich fruitions of this

Jessiiess, we will urge on the crisis. What
though we cm hear the silken cr.ls of fra
: temity cracking, ami sec thread after thread
parting, wo w ill not falter. No! taunt the
hot Southron with the black plague-spot
which ho caught from Northern cupidity;
; curse him for his misfortunes; p'er him for
his prejudices; madden him by our power;
twit him of his poverty, and then sneeringly
i dare him to sever the Union.
j Oh, it is vastly fine, it is trauscendently
j bum mo and philanthropic, for us to talk and
declaim about slavery, to mount the car of
: liberty and ride in triumph over one half of

t.o'ole conduct after a series of gross attacks
' and aggressive movements, which have com

The Jackass Artilleht. It is related
that during the campiign on tho Shenando
ah, one of Fremont's batteries of eight Par
rot guns, supported by a squadron of horse,
wasTn a sharp conflict with a battery of the
enemy near at hand, and shell and shot were
flving thick and fast, when the commander
of tho battery, a German, one of Fremont's
men rode suddenly up to the cavalry, ex
claiming in loud and exciting tones, 'Bring
up the shackasses, pring up th' sh.i:kasses;
for Cot sake hurry up the shickasses. i in -me-dially.'
The necessity of this order
will be obvious when it is known that the
shackasses aro mules carrying mountain
howitzers, which aro fired Irom tbe much
abused but valuable anim.il, and the imme
diate occasion for 'sh.ickasies' was tint two
reg:m-nts of rebel infantry wt re at that mo
ment discovered descending a hiil immedi
ately behind our bitteiies. The shackass
es, with the howitzers loaded with grape
nnd canister, were soon on the ground.
The mules squ irnd thtjtn elv.:s, as they well
knew bow, It r the shock. A terrible volley
was poured into the advancing column,
which immediatly broko and retreated.
Two hundred ac.d revo My - eight d-al bodies
were found in tho ravine next day, piled
