Mt. Vebitox, Ky.. May 15. Colonel
Gilbert has - returned from an extensive
reconnoissance along the Cumberland
river. The result may be summed up in
a few words :
, The wandering bands of horse-thieves
arid brigands (everywhere fled before
parties of the 44th sent out in all direc
tions from, London. Gilbert's forces
have scoured the mountains to Barbars
ville ; thence to Cumberland Ford, and
along the river from Williamsburg
southerly to Big Creek Gap. Detach
ments have purphed the rebels up Poor
Ford to Yellow Creek and into mountain
wilds from Winchester to the forks ot
Goose Creek, and up Red Bird. Those
reigons ajo clear cf rebels for the pres
ent. They did not stand or gght in any
instance. Several were killed and some
fifteen prisoners were taken. We had
no causalities. The rebels in many in
stances resort to torturing the women
and children to make them disclose hid
den corn, and when found they take "ail.
The men, women and children have been
stripped of their clothing and shoes.
Major Moore near Red Bird, found two
men stripped to their -shirts and nearly
starving. Lieut. Shaw and reports sim
ilar instances. -These' people were first
cleaned out by the, necessities of George
Morgan, and ever since by the rebele.
Starvation or flight will soon be the only
steps left them. .
Gilbert's reconnoissance was evidently
successful and disclosed various rebel
haunts. Marshall is in the east, going
towards Hazell Green. Three regiments
of infantry, two battallions of cavalry and
a battery of Gen. Gracey's command,
are now at Cumberland Gap. Col.
Palmer's command of McKelise's brig

when he was attacked at Mississippi
Springs and driven towards Jackson.
A telegram on Thursday from Canton
says the federals have taken Jackson,
from the east probably by a cavalry
movement. Gen. Joseph Johnson arriv
ed at Jackson on the 13th, and went out
towards "Vicksburg with three brigades.
He must have been west of Jackson when

New York, May 18. The Steamer
City of New York from Liverpool the 6th
and Queenstown the 7th, has arrived. A
deputation of trades unionists, headed by
Bright, presented an address, adopted at
a late meeting, sympathizing with the
north, to Minister Adams, who made a
speech expressing great pleasure in the
reception of the address and admitted the
difficulties of steering clear of collisions
between the two nations, but he trusted
the friendly relations would be maintain
ed and asserted that notwithstanding the
tone of some of the American speakers
and journals, there is no nation for which
Americans entertain greater regard than
for England, if the real sentiments of
each people could be clearly established
to each other, he would have no fear of
a collision. He believed the trades un
ionists had taken the right course to pro
duce such an understanding. The Times
looks upon Adams's speech as most reas
onable and timely and look3 forward
without mistrust for mutual forbearance.
England must expect some interruptions
to trade and Americans' must tolerate
short comings on consideration of the dif
ficulties of neutrals. In an other article
the Times argues that it behooves Eng
land to look leniently on the proceedings
of Wilkes, in view of the maintenance of
relations. Russia's reply toTJ the powers
on the Polish question is published. It
agrees to negotiate in a pacific manner
the basi3 of the treaty of eighteen hun
dred and fifteen. The reply 13 not gen
eraly regarded a3 satisfactory. The in
surgents continue active.

Ft. Monroe, May 16. Two small
boats, the Emily and Arrow, engaged in
carrying mails, &c, from Norfolk thro'
to the Dismal Swamp Canal, to North
Carolina, were captured yesterday, near
Corritack Bridge, forty miles from. P or
folk. The Richmond Sentinel of the
15ih has the following :
Jackson Miss., May 12. The enemy
yesterday advanced with a column of 12,
000 men upon Raymond, Miss., where
Gen. Gregg had forty one hundred in
fantry, a few cavalry but no artillery.
Skirmishing began at 9 o'clock in the
morning, the enemy being continually
reinforced until one o clock in the after
noon, when he opened the battle heavily
with musketry. Gregg fought two hours
with musketry alone, when learning the
enemy were heavily reinforced, and that
the reinforcements were ready to engage,
he retreated to Raymond. He will make
a stand at Mississippi Spring, where he
has been reinforced with infantry and ar
illery. The Charleston Mercury says,
the guns of Keokuk now lie on the Sou;h
Commercial wharf. They will soon be
mounted for our defense and are valua
ble acquisitions, no less than trophies cf
the battle in Charleston harbor.
Ft. Monroe, May 17.-The Peters
burg Express of the 15th says retaliatory
resolutions, adopted by the confederate
congress, provide that every commission
ed officer, commanding negroes against
the confederate States shall be put to
death and the negroes delivered up to
the State authorities to be dealt with ac
cording to present or future laws. The
same paper speaks despondingly of af
fairs at Vicksburg.
Chicago, May 18. The latest dates
from Grant's army through federal chan
nels to the 11th. At that time Logan
and Osterhaus were marching towards
Jackson, driving Bowen before them,
while Grant was marching up Black riv
er, expecting to engage Pemberton near
the bridge over that stream. The wo
men and children and all other valuable
movables have been removed from Jack
son. All the men have been forced into
It is further stated that Osterhau3 has
made large captures of men, artillery,
ammunition and commissary stores a few
miles from Raymond. Bowen's forces
are estimated at 15,000. The latter is
reported strongly entrenched near the
Bridge. A great battle there is immi
nent. The health of the army is better
than ever before.

3 peices of artilery fired into the steamer
Warner, 15 miles above Greenville on
Thursday, killing and wounding 4. The
fire was returned and several rebels
Philadelphia, May 19. A Baton
Rouge letter of the 5th says, the im
portance of Col. Grierson's expedition
can hardly be realized without reflec
on what has been accomplished. In
seventeen days the troops marched
over eight hundred miles and traveled
through the very heart of rebel do
minion fighting at every point where
they met with opposition. Ehey kil
led and wounded a large number of
the enemy and destroyed over four
millions dollars worth of property
which would have been of immense
assistance to the rebels in the prose
cution of the war. On two import
ant railroads they completely cut off
all communication with the strong
holds of the enemy and captured over
a thousand prisoners and twelve hun
dred horses. Mhey tvere menaced
at points where they least expected.
An idea msy be gained of the activi
ty of Col. Grierson's command when
the fact is stated that in thirty hours,
while in persuit of a rebel cavalry
fonce the marched seYcnty-five miles,
and fought four battles and skirmish
ed considerably, forded riverf, and
all the time neither men nor horses
had anything to eat.

expedition is two commissioned offi
cers and thirty three enlisted men.
We brought with us 100 mules and
70 horses captured from the enemy.
We captured in the course of our
march a mucs larger number, which
we could not bring. The amount of
property destroyed i3 estimated at
over a million of doliars.
Officers state that now and exten.
sive works have been erected on the
turnpike between Richmond and Fred-
erickburg, heretofore unknown to us.
