;tn assuming the responsibility of editor
during the absence of Mr. Furnas, it may
be considered due to the patrons of the
Advertiser to make a statement as to the
future course of the paper. We'cannot hope
to make as able a journal, editorially, as
our predecessor, but with the liberal use
cf the scissors shall endeavor to make it
acceptable to the readers.

The approaching great battle at or

riving from Norfolk, Fredericksburg, and
even North Carolina, and the rebel Gen
erals openly declare their intention to
make this the great battle of the war;
and the strongest conviction is expressed
of a triumph" over the Federal forces,
and driving them from the Peninsula.

Sergeant Wn. Polock.
It is due to Mr. Polock that I should
make a public statement with regard to
a letter written byjiim and published in
the Advertiser last February. The let
ter was a private one, written to his wife,
in which certain reflections were made
concerning certain officers in the Nebras
ka First. The letter was received in
this city when Mr. Furnas was absent.
Knowing that Mr. Polock was in the habit
of writing letters for publication, and be
ing anxions to furnish the readers of the
Advertiser with the latest news from the
Nebraska Regiment, and being at that
time under the impression that it bad
been written for publication, I obtained it
the purpose cf making extracts for the for
paper; I hastily glanced over the first
portion of the letter and seeing nothing
objectionable had it put in type. The
latter portion I did not read until after it
was in the paper. Mr. Furnas had then
returned, and when reading the paper,
pointed it out to me, remarking that it
might be considered personal. I suggest
ed that it had better be taken out, but he
replied that as it was already printed in
a portion of the papers it was unnecessary
to now suppress it. On account of the
publication of this letter Mr. Polock was
arrested and confined in prison for 8 days.
I make this statement out of justice to
Mr. Polock and Mr. Furnas. No intel
ligent man like Mr. Polock can help
forming opinions about his superior offi
cers, and it is very natural that they
should express those opinions when writ
ing to their own family. Mr. Polock
nerer intended the letter for publication,
and had I read the objectionable para
graphs, either in the letter or in the
proof-sheet, they would have been omit
ted. I believe there is no better or braver
soldier in the regiment than Mr. P.
I learned over two weeks ago that he
had been arrested, but delayed this state

In Philadelphia, on the 17, a writ from
the Supreme Court was served, at the
Continental Hotel, upon the Hon. Simon
Cameron, at the suit of Pierce Butler, for
trespass r et armis, assault and battery,
and false imprisonment on the 19th of
August last, Mr. Cameron at the time
being Secretary of War. Mr. Cameron
had made ready to start for Europe at an
early period, and this arrest, which took
him entirely by surprise, will materially
interfere with his arrangements. Some
feeling was manifested because of this
transaction, and in the evening a number
of citizens visited the residence of Mr.
Butler and expressed their dissatisfaction
at his course by a discordant serenade.
Cameron had Mr. Butler arrested in Au

comfort to the enemy. He was confined

April 8th, 1662,2, P.M.
Editor Ntbraska Advertiser :
On the morning cf the 6th. at early
dawn, heavy firing was heard at Pitts
burg Landing, four miles above Crump's,
where the 3d Division, commanded
by Major General Wallace, was then
in camp. The General immediately pre
pared for a movement, expecting orders
from Gen. Grant, in command at Pitts
burg, to come to his aid. But Grant, be
ing abssnt at the lime, orders did not
come for us to move until about 12 o'clock,
when we immediately started the First
and Third Brigade to Camp Wallace,
where the Second Brigade, Col. J. M.
Thayer commanding, was stationed. We
took up the line of march about 1 1-2 p. m.
for Pittsburg. After a difficult march
part of the way through a muddy bottom,
we arrived inside of Grant's lines about
9 o'clock, P. M. The Division was put
ia position, and slept on their arms. At
dawn of the 7ih, we commenced firing on
the rebel lines, which were about three
hundred yards in our front. After a
short and desperate contest, we drove
them back a short distance, and reoccu
pied the grounds our troops had been
driven from the previous day. We gained
gradually and steadily on them all the
bloody day, until 4 o'clock, P. M., when
the rebels were totally routed and retreat
ed to a safe distance. Our men pursued
only a short distance, as the Cavalry were
all in the rear. We took many prisoners
and several field pieces.
The most conspicuous Regiment3 in
our Division, were the Eighth Missouri,
Eleventh and Twenty-third Ind., and the
Nebraska First Infantry. The latter did
nobly, and received the approval of their
General. Their loss was six killed and
fourteen wounded. Of Company "C,'7
Curtis killed and Miller mortally woun
ded ; others slightly wounded. I passed
along their lines with a message to Col.
Thayer, when they were in a dangerous
position, judging from ihe whistle of balls
and bursting of shells. They were all
standing bravely at their post. Many
familiar voices spoke to me as I passed.
I found the Colonel in good spirits, cool
and collected. He and his men cannot
receive too much praise.
After we ceased fighting, and the rebels
were totally routed, we learned that we
had been opposed by Gen. Beaureguard
in person, with his crack Regiments, to
prevent us from flanking his command.
This he bravely done. His loss must
have been great. We found papers which
stated some companies went in wiih about
70 men, and came out with 16.
Last night we lay on our arms; it
rained torents. Surely soldering is hard ;
but we patiently bear all ihe hardships
for that'which is dearer than life.
I am well pleased with our gallant vic
tory, although it was dearly bought. Our
bss is considerable, but much less than
the ememy. Beaureguard was wounded
in the foot, when he was retreating.
Prisoners say we cut them all to pieces.

morrow, and drive them to their last
hiding place. I believe this is the wind

Richmond papers say that McClellen
is waiting for the iron-clad gunboats to
take Richmond ' by way of James river,
and call for obstructions, regarding boats
once sunken as the only means to prevent
it. According to refugees recently from
the rebel, there are only 4 slight batteries
on that river, and they can easily be taken
by our gun boats.

From intelligence deemed reliable, and
as corroborated by deserters, it is thought
the rebels will act merely on the defen

aggressive movement at an early day.

Engagement Near Santa Fe.
From the Rocky Mountain News -Extra April 7tb.
From Mr. Kiskadden, Jr., who arrived
this evening from Fort Union, we learn
the following :
That while the Union forces, about
1,300, under Brigadier Slough, were
wilhin two days march of Santa Fe, Ma
jor Chivington went ahead with three
cavalry companies to reach Santa Fe and
hold it, learning that there were just then
but a few hundred of Sibley's men in
charge of the town.
At Apache Pass, the Major learned
that a body of Texanswere crossing over
to intercept Col. Slough's command, and
he notified him accordingly.
On Wednesday, the 26th, an engage
ment took place. Learning that there
was part of a company of Texans wilhin
a few miles, in charge of the provision
wagons. Major Chivington and a few
companies rode out and took the guard
prisoners, numbering 56. The fifty mule
teams were seized, and the wagons and
The Texans were whipped in the en
gagement by Col. Slough's command; and
retired. Col. Slough's command were
camped near Pigeon's Rauch, and not in
expectation of having any more trouble
on the march, when a report was received
that the Texans were again approaching
having been reinforced by three or four
mqre of their companies, numbering in
all at this time, 1,200 strong.
A second engagement took place at
noon on Friday, the 2Sih ult., which las
ted several hours. Boih parties ceased
fighting, and withdrew to their respective
camps, within four miles distant, with the
intention of renewing the battle next
day, when it was expected the "big
fight" would take place.
In the two engagements. Col. Slough
lost, as reported, twenty private?, and
two or three officers. The enemy's loss
was not known, only that four Majors
were found dead on the ground of the
first batile. Lieuis. Chambers, of Com
pany C. nnd Baker, of Company I. were
killed. Captain Cook was wounded, and
it was supposed, seriously.
Lieut. Marshall, of Capt. Cook's com
pany, while traveling ovei th field of the
first fight, accidentelly shot himself.
The cannon found with the rebel stores
was spiked and buried in a ditch.
It was expected Col. Canby would reach
the field of action in time for the third
and great fight. If not, and the Texans
should overpower, by numbers, Col,
Slough's men, the latter may Teturn to
Fort Union. There are about two hun
dred men now at this fort.
The particulars of the expected .big
battle we shall probably receive shortly.
From Port Royal Accounts of the
Capture of Fort Pulaski.
New York, April IS.
, The steamer McClellaa has arrived
from Port Royal, 14th.
The frigate Vermont was being towed
m as the McCIellan came oj.
The following is an account cf the cap
ture of Fort Pulaski :
On the morning of the 10th General
Gilmore sent to the fort, demanding an
unconditional surrender. Oimstead re
plied that he was there to defend, not to
surrender the fort.
Our batteries immediately opened fire.
A few rounds shot away the flagstaff, but
it was replaced, and the firing kept up
until sunset. General Gilmore then
placed a battery at Boat Point, only 1,600
yards from the fort to breach the walls,
and commenced firing at midnight, for
that purpose, with Parrot and James guns.
On the morning cf the 11th two brea
ches were discovered on the southeast
face of the fort, which at noon assumed
huge proportions, and about two o'clock
the rebel rag was hauled down, and the
white flag- displayed, and the fort surren
dered. Col. Olmsted stating that it was
impossible to hold out longer, our rifled
shot reaching the magazine, and most of
his guns being disabled.
The Second Connecticut regiment took
possession that night. Union loss, one
killed and cne slightly wounded; rebel
loss, three badly wounded and 3S5 pris
oners. One hundred and five prisoners
are on board the McCIellan, in charge of
Col. Morrell, Aid to Gen. Hunter.
By the McCIellan we learn that Jack
sonville had been evacuated, and our
troops arrived at Hilton on the steamer
Cosmopolitan on the 15th.
Condition of the Contrabands.
Notwithstanding the irumens'j number
of contrabands (that have been recorded
as having arrived at Old Point, it is al
most as difficult a matter to obtain a ser
vant here as it is in Baltimore, Although
they are still coming in, the number is
rapidly decreasing, and no one seemes to
know where they have gone. There has
been a change recently instituted in their
government, and they are no longer held
under the same restraint. They seem to
be allowed to go where they choose,
whether it be North or South, the Gov
ernment retaining no exclusive control
over them. Many of the boys and young
men have hired themeelves to the officers
as servants, and have gone with the ad
vancing army, many of the men have
hired themselves oa board vessels, whilst
others have gone with the transports,
never more to return. A great many of
the able-bodied men have also entered
the service as teamsters and are thus set
adrift as free men, without muster or
overseer. This is one of the inevitable
results of the rebellion, and the longer
the war lasts the more destructive will it
be to the slave owner. The war was
got up oa the pretext of being for the in
terest of the slaveholdar, and is proving
Every day a large number of contra
bands, mostly able-bodieu men, are now
coming in our lines, and are at once en
gaged as servants by the officers, bui few
of them reaching the Fortress. There
being a great scarcity of hands among the
shipping, those that understood the hand
ling of rope were engaged, making their
own bargains and acting as free men.
Those who are employed in loading

Among the multitude of evils developed
by this rebelion 'a disregard for the
sanctity of an oath is one of the worst.
Hitherto, among civilized cations no
thing has been regarded more sacred, or
more binding, than an oath. It has been
considered the most solemn manner of
rendering a man's word self-binding and
worthy of confidence. Almighty God is
called to witness ; his vengeance is in
voked, and his favor is renounced incase
the word given is forfeited. But it has
been left to the leaders of this groundless
rebellion and their deluded followers, to
subvert this most wholesome moral senti
ment, and to teach a doctrine condemned
alike by God's law and man's moral sense,
viz the right to violate an oath.
Oath breaking is one cf their most fla
grant sin?, and they could hardly have
inflicted a greater injury poa the people
than to inculcate so wicked a doctrine.
In the first place, nearly all the leading
men in the rebellion were under the most
solemn oaths to support the government
which they are now madly endeavoring
to destroy. Those oaths wre violated
without cause or excuse, and they gloried
in what should be their shame. These
public men and the newspapers at home
justified, approved and applauded ; even
christian ministers sanctioned their shame
less disregard of the most solemn vows.
What wonder, then, that there should be
so frequent violation of oaihs among the
masses? Thus, one of the strongest
barriers against evil has been demolished,
and men are left without confidence in
each other's pledged word.
What greater evil could bi inflicted on
the rising generation than to take away
ihis safeguard to virtue? Robbing the
sovernmeut arsenals, forts,, post-offices,
mails, mints, navy. '&c, was nothing com
pared to the moral injury done to the race
by tearing down this time-honored de
fense of virtue and truth. The people
will feel and suffer from this evil long af
ter all material ioss has been repaired
or forgotten. No execration can be too
deep, no punishment too severe, for its
authors. Mo. Democrat.'

Pursuit or Cleveland.
From the St. Joseph Journal, April 115.
Day before yesterday, a detachment of
the Seventh Kansas regiment, now sta
tioned at Ellvvood, learning that the great
Jayhawking chief, Cleavehmd, was ia or
near Ellwood, and was about to remove
his wife to Atchison, made arrangements
to capture him.. Late in the evening his
wife, having previously "packed her
trunks," had them placed in a carriage,
and accompanied by a diiver and Cleve
land's negro body servant, set out on ihe
Atchison roaj. After proceeding some
distance, and when night had dropped
her man.le over the earth, Cleveland met
her, and got into the carriage with her.
But very sooa after this the carriage
came to a stop, and on looking out to as
certain tne cause the Robber Chief found
himself in a trap, as well .tsin a carriage,
lie was s.irrouudd with solders, and hi?
unconditional surrender was demanded,
the officer of the party threatening to
"move immediately on his works," if the
demand was not comp!id with. But
Cleveland, quicker than it cedd be told,
sprang from the carriage, leaped over or
through the file of soldiers, reached the
timber and escaped. His wife, his nig
rer. and histruuks remained in the hands
of the soldiers, but ihe great prize of all
The Stevens Battery.
The appropriation for ihe Stevens Bat
tery has pased both Houses of Congress
with a majority of more than two to one
in its favor, thus showing their decided
opinion as to its efficiency. To the bill is
annexed a proviso, leaving it to the Sec
retary of the Navy to decide whether the
vessel when finished will be an "efficient"
war steamer. Ia view of this expressioa
of opinion on the part of Congress, we do
not doubt that the Secretary will himself
decide this point favorably and give to
the country a war vessel which, in the
judgment of experts, is destined, from its
impregnability, unprecedented speed and
power, far to surpass any other now afloat,
and, so far a? we know, any now in
course of construction or proposed to be
constructed at home or abroad. An ad
ditional reason why the Secretary may be
expected to act at once is that the bill
provides for the "immediate completion"
of the battery. She could be completed,
we understand, according 10 the estimate
adopted by the Board of Examiners of
last summer, in four months; in time to
surnish us a most important and power
ful auxiliary in our present struggle.
