ALEXANDRIA. August 15 Lieut.
Smith Dorrcus * account of his recon-

ton and myself , kfter proceeding very
cautiously about 17 miles without
escort , arrived at 2:30 : o'clock Tues
day morning within UOO yards of the
enemy's country camp. The night
was very dark and wo were unable to
get the details of the position. Wo
therefore decided to find a point ; which
would enable us to see the camp when
daylight broke. Wo had not moved
HO yards when the enemy'd picket saw
us and showed a briirht light , which
was directly answered along the lino.
Wo ran about a milo and entered the
lake about a hundred yards. The
enemy pursued and spread themselves
along the lake , completely cutting oil'
our retreat. Their horses seemed
afraid to face the water in the dark.
The enemy's system of signaling with
lights appeared excellent. Our every
movement was tluhed by the nearest
man and answered along the lino. I
presume the enemy did not flro in _ or
der not to alaim any force wo might
have hod near. Wo tied a wliito
handkerchief to a polo , and afterward
decided to make another attempt to
escape. At 4 o'clock in the morn ing
wo wont n hundred yards further into
the lake and lay down in two foot of
water. The enemy , evidently losing
sight of us , retired. At 4:45 : wo rose ,
and ) having made a detour , returned
to the English camp.

A SQUEALING SENATOR.
The "Favorite Son" of Massa
chusetts Mends the Har
bor Bill ,
The Pressure of Public Opinion
Brings Out an Explana
The Vote of the Veto nn Act of T7n-
A Doleful bound from the Bnciiwoods
Hour on the Harbor Bill.
Special Il pitch to TUN DM.
WoncESTi'.u , Mass. , Aug. 15. Sen
ator 11 oar has addressed a letter to
the people of Maesachnnotts , giving
his reasons for voting for the river
and harbor bill , and giving also aomo
views on internal improvements , In
the opening , Mr. Uoar says to the
people : ' 'It has never boon your
fashion to condemn your public ser
vants unheard. You will bo glad to
listen to the reasons which have gov
erned alargotuajority os your delega
tion as well as a largo majority in both
houses of congress in giving their sup
port to the river and harbor bill. If
wo have orrcd it has boon with the
sincere dcsiro to do right , and with
out the smallest desire to do
wrong. Thoio is no ion of
Massachusetts who lovo. ' her moro
than I do. But fully believing , after
caroiul consideration , that my duty to
her and to the whole country required
of mo that vote , I could not have failed
to cast it for all the honors and offices
within her gift. The popplo got moro
for their money from this class of ap
propriations ) than from any other.
These works are permanent. They do
not perish with using , The money is
expended by a board of engineers.
This board is made up of experience -
enco army officers and has the
confidence of the country moro
than any other public body ,
not excepting the supreme court
itself , No member or congress orauy-
body else can influence the expendi
ture. The economy and expenditure
of no dollar in this department has
over , so far us I know , boon chal
lenged. It is absurd to sny these har
bors and bays and great rivers are not
to bo made accessible to districts ,
towns or factories in tboir vicinity ,
and that it is not proper to exercise
national authority to do it. \'ou
might as well Bay , while Boston har
bor is national , it could bo so decided
that ships could not go to its wharves
bccauso tlio wharves are local ; joir
might OB itoll , in building the-
Boston & Albany railroad across
the state refuse to have sidetracks at
town and cities bocauno tboy are local.
There fa ono respect in which this
rirer and harbor money is best spent
' of all public appropriations , sa'vo only
'tho .pensions. There are vast spaces
in this country where the United
States government has booni
known for a generation only in *
the character of a conqueror or tax-
gatherer. It is good that they should
BOO this great and bonoficiont power in
ita character of a bonofaUor. But it
is also well that people in these sec
tions of the country who have
boon educated tor half a cen
tury to look on the national gov
ernment with jealousy and dislike ,
and who have felt its terrible power
iu war , in wasted fields and desolated
homos , should learn to associate its
imago with benoficient works which
join thorn with the great system of
national commerce , and on which
their prosperity and wealth are hereafter -
after to depend. Whether the policy
of this bill is to bft popular in Massa
chusetts this afternoon or this week or
this year I do not know. But ono
thing I j > know ; It ia in the line of
all her ffaditiona and ia 8Urosoonor or
later , to command her support. ,
