THS BATTLE AT PISHING CHEEK.
A few additional detail* have reached us of tbe battle
of f -,hing Creek No astimaie ol our lose can be form

perhaps overestimated them, anil tbeir acconntsayi 273.
An iuulligeot ofiicwr who was in tbo battle thinks (hat
half that number is a fair estimate.
Col. 3am. rowel', who with pu-t ot bis regiment was

in the arm, reached Knoxville yesterday morning. A

near the shou dir. He repor's that Col. Balt'e's Suth
Tet ntsace regiment. Col Stathain'. 15th Mi-sir-ippl, and
Co'. Cumming's lflth Tennessee regiment, be re the brunt
ot the battle- The engagement lasted over two hours,
when the troops were thrown icto disorder by the death
of General t >Uic< tier, which occurred early in the
action, and retreated Generals Crittenden aad Car
roll occupied a position on a bill overlooking the
held. Colonel Powell was not aware of b.ing woun
ded until some time after, when, ou attempting
to draw his pistol, ha found his arm banging power
less at bis side. But for me untimely tail ot 7.ol'ic.lfcr,
or bad another officer commanding the sime confid nee
of his men been in the held to take bis place, he is con
blent the Vaskees would have been whipped. Colonel
Powell is an sccomplis »d gentleman, and has proved
himself a brave and cool sol j.e». We trust that bis ear
ly n-storatiea umy again lend his country tbs service ot
his arms, nerved to renewed strength br the recollcotim
of Vishing C'-eek, and the memory of bis gallant brother,

Vwed our cause in the advance ou Barbcu-ville. Col.
Powell thicks about ten ol hit men were killed, and ten
wounded, acme of them severely.
Cols. Wsl'ha'l, S auatou, and Murray were each

CxPLOSION AT THE CoYERRMERT LABORATORY.—T##
terday, about 11 o’eleck, M., an explosion cocurrad at
tbe Cunfcdera.e Laboratory, on Byrd Iflind, which oc
casioned great excitement for tbe while is the vicinity.
The particulars as far an we could aacarlaii: them are as
follows: Might persons, worthy youths, were employed
ia one corner of the 1 xrer story ol the building, nearset
the Petersburg railroad bridge, In tilling fuass for ab-IIs.
Th-' department iu wb'ob 'hey were thus engaged ia
styled the 4‘3ca coast Auiai'iuition Room.” The fca:a
are mido of aliff paper, and filled with an exploeiTe con.*
position, driven iuti ihe paper eves by meats of a mal
let and punch- One of the employ, ea, named Peter
■renders, waa ccoopied In fi ling a fu*. whan the coin
position exploded, »ud ooDinuoicited fire to two or thr*t
hundred fio shed fuses, near by, producing an eip’osion
which seriously injured #c?er*l of the operative# whote
nam*s are Jihn FPiparrick, Cbirle* 9hopa, John Bar
man, Robert Roberisou and Michael Bryan. Three oth
er pernors present, P.-ter Braiders, R .bart Coleman and
William K Smith, eacaped with but cimparatively slight
Irjurirs. As sooo as the eip'osioii occurred the opera
lives rushed out of Ihe building, several of them with
tbeir clothes afire Ouo or two ran into the river, and
tx inguished ihe fire, o.ihers ran into the vacant space
north of the building, whare persons went to their re
lief and stripped them of their burning garments. Two
or three, whose names v* ciuld rot learn, were so dis
figured and burnt by the explosion, ns to be uirccogni
x»ble at tbe time, and it is bsliaved that at least one of
the number must have lost bis eyesight, but vi tound it
impo-eible to ascertain the facte, as tho sufferer* were
immediately conveyed home, or elsewhere.
The report of the explosion alarmed th* women and
girls—several huadre 1 iu number—employed in the ad
joining building in making cartridges, and they fi d
from the premises iu will dismay and confusion. It is
fortunate, iudeed, that none of them were crippled by
ths suddeu rxidus. The building iu which the explo
sion occurred was but slightly damaged—a few pane* ol
glass briten being the ex oat of the iejiry.
The bells promptly sounded tbe alarm of fire, aud tbe
brigade arrived iu good title at tue locality, but fortu
nately their services wers not required.

Sicrit Rtmtoss—The House of Delegates, aa also the
Senate, wa» in secret session ou Riturday last and yester
day. This be.ng »n unusual mode of legislation, especially
in the House o< Delegatee, we made at mtinquiries with a
view to ascertain the uaturu of the punlic exigencies re
quirutg the proceedings of the latter body to be kept
temporalily from the public eye. As there is no impro
priety in giving to nur readers the information we ob
tained, we will merely state that, while the mili ary bills
are painting through the d fared stvges of amendments
and mod.tics tiors, It has been deemed expedient to con
duct tbs prt ceediegs in sacret session to prevent erro
neous impressions being made on the pub'ic mind by
the publication of bills and reports whioh when matured
for the vo'e o( the House or Senate may be, and doubt
leu oi l be, altogether dilf-ient from the same bill* and
reports aa originally prosented.
In this connection, we d«*ent it but an act of juatice to
M»j H W. Thomas, of Fairfax, to Hate, that the milllarv
bill presented by that gentleman in the Sauate, a few
day* since, was forwarded to him by a diitinpuiabed offi
oer, in active service, with a request to bring it before
that body. The authorship r>f ice bill has been erro
neously ascribed to M j ir Thomas, who his had no
other connection with it than that above stated.
