Fcr several weeks past hns not, it must
be confessed, ben yery faroratle to the
Union cause. The rebels, it is true.have
not gained any great victory, but since
the reverse at Richmond small advantage
have been pained along almost the en
tire line between the Union and Confed
erate Armies ' Marfreboro, Terin. has
been re-t3ken by the Confederates, ur
der Col. Forest, with three or four Al-
abama and Georgia Kegiments, Mor
gan with three thousand men has burned
one or two villages in Kentucky, and is
threatening Lexington and Frankfort,
which occasioned intense excitement at
LouisvilleCovingtori, Newport, and over
almost the entire State, and even in Cin
cinnati, Ohio. A small town in Indiana,
ten miles aWe Evansville,has been cap-
tured by a few rebels . from Kentucky,
aided by the secessionists of the vicinity.
A confederate army is organizing in Ar
kansas with the avowed purpose of inva
ding 'Missouri. Curtis has been com
pelled to cat his way out of Arkansas,
thereby sacrificing nearly, all that had
been gained by his campaign in that
State. Besides all these, Bridge' burn
ers and guerrillas are becoming emboli
neJ, and nre constantly committing dep
redations in Tennessee, Kentucky, Ar
kansas, and ia the vicinity cf Neiv Orleans.-;
The rebel ircnekd gunboat
Arkansas kzs escaped from the Yazoo
River, and has passed through the fleet
of boats lying above. Vicksburg, badly
injured, it is true, but doing more inju
ry to our boats than the herself sustain
ed, and is now being repaired under the
batteries at that' city. Near Richmond
'all is quiet," but it is admitted there is
danger cf James River being blockaded
eo as to cut off McClelland supplies. .
- The . fanlt is, . our army has dwindled
way until it is not adequate to the task
it has to perform. Our army never was
as large as represented there never was
near five hundred thousand soldiers un
der government, pay at any time. 'And
what-we did have nine, months ago has
been reduced in numbers nearly one:half.
Thef e has not been very many killed in
any one engagement, but ail in the ag
gregate amounts to many' thousand.
And if we could count up those who
have died from disease ; . the wounded ;
those mustered cut of service on account
of physical. disability and sickness; the
deserters; the prisoners and those let
free on parole, they would reduce the
array to about $225,000 effective men.
And it .is divided and scattered on a
line many thousand miles in extent from
Maryland to Colorado ; from the Chesa
peak to the mouth of the Rio Grand;
and frcci Cairo to the gulf of Mexico.'
For, a year past the rebel army has been
increasing, by means of conscriptions, ua-
till ia numbers it far exceeds ours. Con
tequently they are enabled to act on the
offensive. But their strength is nearly
exhausted. : When the three hundred
thousand soldiers 'now being raised, are
put in tlte field, we will again out-number
them two to one, and they can never
again fill up their army.

There is reason to believe the Presi
dent will soon lay down certain rules for
the conduct of the war, such rule3 as any
one, sincerely desirous of carrying out
the principles of the confiscation act would
adopt and inforce. It is now known that
the President, under the advice of Gen.
Scott and with the acquiesence of Mc
Clellan, Las called llalleck to Washirg-
ten to act as General-in-Chief of - the ar

ment that a cavalry expedition under Gen.
King left Fredericksbury on the evening
of the 19th, and after , a forced march,
made a descent at. daylight, Sunday, on
the Virginia Central road, at Beaver Dam
Creek. 25 miles west of Hanover Junc
tion and 35 miles from Richmond - They
destroyed the railroad and telegraph for
several miles, and burned a depot which
contained a large amount of ammunition
and other valuable property. The whole
country was thrown into a great state of
alarm. , One private on our side was
wounded. , The cavalry marched SO miles

If I should puff our officers and speeches,

partial, perhaps. I will therefore quote
from 'the Un ion Appeal, of Memphis, a

may be pleasanter to be a brigadier han
a Colonel, but it must, nevertheless, hae
been hard to resign the command of Reg

him", as the First Nebraska did in Col.
Thayer. .They seemed proud of his po
sition, however,; and considered, it . an
honor to themselves ; and the separation
is the less" felt ' that they belong to his

that Gen.-Thayer is as graceful 7at the
festive board, as he is brave onthe.field ;.
that Gen. Grant is as pleasant as a .gen-
tlentleman, as he is heroic and skilled as
a leader ; and that the Nebraska First is

skirmish which occurred at Locust Grove,
twelve miles south of this camp, on the
3d inst. : : ' "' ". ""
The 2d brigade under the command of
Colonel Judson, arrived at Cabin Creeki
July 2d..:'The Colonel received infor
mation that .the enemy, 500 strong, under
qoI. Stanwatie, the notorious rebel leader
of the hostile Cherokees, had left Cabin
Creek, the day previous, taking a north
erly course, but had seat his supply and
baggage train, to Locust Grove. . . .
Colonel Judson immediately directed
one section of . Captain Allen's battery, a
a detachment pf infantry belonging to the
10th Kansas, consisting of details from
tbe.variou3 companies, amountinsf in all
to 63 men, with Lieutenants Milhourne
and. Stewart, under the command of
Capuin Matthft v Quiqrnr, companies D.
E and H, of the 9ih Kansas cavalry, also
about 200 mounted Indians of the tribes
of. Creaks, Cherokees ; and Seminojesrof
of the. 1st Indian regiment, commanded
by Lieut Col. WattlesK to be in readiness
at 9 o'clock p.' m. .
The unexpected arrival of Col. Wreer
prevented CoI..Jud?on from, taking com
mand of the exredition. He was ordered
to remain in camp.
Col. Wee r" marched with the command
detailed "by Colonel Judson at the time

Landnnn Ford at 4 a. m., next morning
after a. fatiguing: march. The adrance
guard, consisting of twelve men of corn

party of 25 or 30 rebels, at the premises
of Messrs. 13. M. Adair and John Davis,

The guard immediately chargedi scat

taking ten prisoners. The main body o
the Union forces coming up, . proceeded
immediately to the rebel ca.nn. . The en:
tire rebel outfit was in . a . very short tim?
either dispersed or taken. Our loss was
but three killed, one of thpm accidentally
by our own fire. One private oi the 9th

been mustered into the ranks. The ap

over 500 Indians have personally asked
to .be received into his command, since
the regiment has been rrvnde up.
My correspondent says of thi3 body pf
troops, every body who has seen them, is
agreeably, surprised. And their Colonel
speaks in glowing terms in regard to them
They make good soldiers, easily controll
ed, and they conduct and doport them
selves well, generally.' The Colonel is
constantly with them, devoting his entire
energies to accomplish what very few
persons thought possible, make good sol

has succeeded remarkably well.
Col. Ritchie has reliable information
that John Ross was about to join the ex

. Just two years ago the National Dem
ocratic Convention, which had broken up
in a row at Charleston, and adjourned to
Baltimore, was -in session in the fast
name j city. Just ' two years ago to-day
the ; Committee on' Credentials' in that
body finished their report in which they
ueciuea adversely to the claims of the
Breckinridge, or disunion delegates from
Louisiana, and in favor of the- Douglas
delegation from that State, headed bv ihe
Hon. Pierre Soule. The individual last
named took his seat just at the moment
that the secession delegates were prepar
ing for the "bolt" from the Convention,
which was a part of the secession pro
gramme, and he made a speech on the
"situation" upon assuming the place
awarded him. The writer of this article
heard the speech, and he never before or
since listened with more pleasure to an
oratorical effort. Mr, Soule i$ a fine
speaker, anci he made one of his very best
orations upon the occasion referred to.
With. solemn earnestness he imn.ored the
Breckinridge faction to remain in their
places, and not break tip the Democratic
party ; he told them that secession from
the Convention meant disunion, and he
then portr tved, in strong language, the
consequences of an effort to break up the
Federal Union, Henry Ciay nver
pleaded more "powerfully for the Union
thanTierre Soule did upon that memor
able occasion, and the great statesman of
the West never drew a more vivid pic
ture of the consequences'of its disruption.
The fiercest of the fire-eater of the Con-
vention were ior a time snamea-ana
silenced by the wonderful eloquence and
the prophetic oratory ot tae aistinguiiaea
Louisianian. .' ,
The same rerort that gave a place in
thi Convention to Mr. Soule, excluded
from hi3 scat Benjamin F. Butler, a
Breckinridge' delegate from ,Massachu-
0 :ti .L .
setts. These two men now musiraie iae
prophetic character cf the great Union
Speech of . Mr." Soule. The latter fell
from grace ' and deserted, his vaunted
Union principles, ana ' he is now an in-
mate' of a IScrtnern prison, jueivjamin
F. Butler .was firm in his devotion to the
nion ar.d the Constkution, and he is now
a iMaior General in the army of the
United States, and d. elating laws, to tne
eonle of the home cf Pierre Soule.
