Aftcr a careful reennnoissance on the

assault on Fort FisScr. Painc's divi

ordered to hold our line, already strong,

the latter by Bell's, which, after despcr.

suffered a severe loss..
At 5 p. ru. wo had possession of about
"half the land front. Abbott's brigade
was then taken from our lino facing
"Wilmington and put into Fort Fisher,
and on pushing it forward, at 10 p. m.,
it took the rest of tho work with little
resistance, the garrison falling back to
tho extreme of tho Peninsula, where
they were followed and captured, among
others General Whiting and Colonel
Lamb, both wounded. I think wchave
-quite 2,000 prisoners. I hope our own
loss may not esceed five hundred, but it
is impossible to judge in the night.
Among the wounded are tho com
manders of three leading brigades, Gen-
oral Curtis being woundod, though not
severely, but Cobuelu Ponnypackor and
Tho land front was a formidable on?,
the parapet in places being fourteen or
fifteen feet high, but the men went at it
nobly, undo.' a severe musketry fire.
Tho marines and sailors went up gallant,
ly, but tho musketry from the cast side
of tho land front was so severe they did
jiot succeed in entering tho works,
Tho navy fire on the work, judging
from the holes, must have been terrific.
.Many of the guns were injuicd. How
many there wcro on the front, I cannot
eay perhaps thirty or forty.

An event, of recent occurrence, in our
county demands from tv, moro than a
passing notice ; and from those in power
speedy punishment. Wo refer to tho
recent outrage committed on tho person
of II. llortou, Esq., of Fox township.

from the custody of the Anthony's, andj
secreted themselves about ono tmlo lrom
Ilelleu mills in this county. A poss:
was then sent iuto Brandy C.tmp after
them, accompanied by tho Anthonys,
who re arrested the alleged deserters,
and took them to D. C. Oysters. James
Anthouy, it seems, was then seized with

outrageous, lawless and riotous man.

of Mr. II. all tho fire arms iu his posses

in his hand, and supposing, very natur.

that, if ho did not leave nt once, ho
would receive tho contents of his fire

glaring outrage, determined to commit
others. He demanded a team from
Mrs. Oyster, her son being absent, but
was informed by Mrs. O. that tho horses
wero unfit to travel ; but Anthony say.
ing that ho had authority to take them,
did so, and returned to Mr. Ilortons, iu
the morning. On seeing the party, Mr.
llorton invited them to enter, which
they did ; ho then handed Anthony the
pocket book which ho had found the
previous night. Anthony, having in
spected tho contents, charged Mr. II.
with having stolen five dollars from it;
that chargo being so contemptibly re
diculous, wa pass it by without further
notice. Anthony then put Mr. II, ia
irons and conveyed him to Ojsters in
that condition, and allowed him to re.
main so, for some time ; when ono of the
soldiers, haying a duo regard to law and
justice told Anthony ho was doing wrong
and would bring trouble on nimsclt ;
at tho same time advisiiig him to take
the irons off Mr, II ; to this Anthony re
sponded, "that he would be damned if
he did anything of the kind: that he
would keep him in irons until he arrived
in Washington." The s jldicr, however,

Captain Campbell, who, always willing
to make reparation, immediately dischar

severer punishment should bo meted
