THURSDAY, AUGUST 25,18& L THE NEWS The military situation is without change of importance. All is quiet &t Atlanta, hot not the quiet of Inactivity. Gen. Sherman s making every preparation to meet and thw&tt the eflorts of the enemy to assail his com munications. Below Petersburg our troops still hold the position Intercepting the Wel don railroad communications, and alter a desperate struggle at our dlslodgment, the rebels have retired. The Danville railroad is next in order, and ts reported already menaced. Accounts from the Upper Poto mac are confused and contradictory. The rebels show a strong line, before which our troops have fallen back to a strong position ; at Harper’s Ferry.- The statements as to the movements and Intentions of the enemy, are contradictory. The sensation of the morning Is the rebel dash into Memphis on Monday morning, the details of which are voluminously told in our dispatch elsewhere. Forrest led the force, which singularly enough fulled in every essential point of its main object The rebels remained in Memphis scarcely so long ns it must have occupied our telegraphic cor respondent to prepare his stupendous dis patch of four thousand words. Something, however, must be conceded to a young gen tleman whose post of doty has been for months unvisited by any sensational news event. The record reads well for the Union troops engaged, and everybody will enjoy the narrative except Forrest and his friends. "We give in (mother column a very impor. tact proclamation from Gov. Brough, of Ohio, addressed to pereoss in Ohio preparing to resist the draft. We are sorry to believe it is called for in Ohio and others of her sis* ter States of the West. It embodies the *>eling and determination of all loyal m-n and the constituted loyal authorities that the laws must be enforced, and the borne traitors crushed out. This Government is lost un less capable ol a vigorous effort to strike down all insurrections that aim todelyits power. The laws arc ample and the power of the Government Is ample to execute all measures for the crushlu* out of the rebel lion, and the peace men whoj'iieau war upon the Government may as well be warned In. lime. * Fernando Wood and Vallandlgh&m were to conic journeying into tble city together this morning, from the borne of the latter at Dayton, where the former made a character, ietlc speech on Tuesday nlcbt. We give Us substance in a Clnciunuti dispatch elsewficre. He asserts with some confidence that a peace man on a peace platform ** ould be nominat ed at Chicago, and. that tue Convention would be harmonions. At a Peace meeting at Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday, a resolution was adopted express Ing high regard for the soldiers, whereupon several of the latter, in order to test the sincerity of the “peace brethren,” groaned for Jeff. Davie. This was 100 much for the “peace men,” who, with bowie-knives and pitlols, rushed upon the soldiers and drove them Irom the ground. The latter were un armed. Onr St. Louie advices give the number of of white persons, settlers, miners, and emi grants in transitu on the plains at 100,050. This tact will give an idea of the seriousness of the danger of a general Indian war which will find multitudes of unarmed white vic tims, besides multitudes it is to be hoped not unarmed, and not disposed to be made victims ofl Tbe lowa peace sneaks met at lowa City to get up on outside pressure on the Chicago Convention. Our dispatch elsewhere gives their action and the resolutions passed. These would be a subject for ridicule, were not the undurlying intent of so grave a nature. Tbe assertion that the forthcoming November election will not be left-to the tree chcice of tbe people, and tbe threat of deposition of the Republican candidate in the event ofhis re-election, must be set down as the idlest vaporing of treason, and yet not idle in Ihc sense cf 'harmless. It will be well for these lowa treason shriekers and their brethren everywhere in the North, to remember that leaving the issues ot November entirely out of the ques tion, the present administration his six months of work yet before It, with powerful armies at its command and aloyal people at ts back, time enough to bring great grief aud sore punishment upon all who dare to throw themselves in tbe path of the war pow’er of the government. As tbe Canada conductor said to tbe passenger on the car platform, so it may be said to some of these home traitors on tbe rampage, “ Step inside the woggln mon, yt tuoy gd huried out thar.'i The London murderer, who slew his vic tim in a railway carriage a few weeks since, under circumstances that have been widely narrated in the press, and who took passage in a sailing vessel for America, was captured on her arrival at New York yesterday. The Admiralty sent off officers li a swift steamer to make the arrest, the success of which will be a subject ol congratulation on both sides of the Atlantic. it is said that VoUandigham,byan engage maut'av Ith Obi. Wood, will stand at the Chi* <Vich afternoon this week, be tweA the hours of 2 and 5. The proceeds will go to swell the Ohio dime funds. At puck hours the wax Judas in the Trial of Christ will bo withdraw. One novelty of a kind at a time is Col Wood’s motto. *• We three brothers be.” William E. Da vis, correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette, recently captured in Georgia, oos been added lothc ‘•mees” of Junius Henri Browne and Albert D. Richardson, now confined in that hades on earth, the Salisbury penitentiary. The gold barometer was made to exe cute a fumt ” wiggle” yesterday as apart cf tbe Peace machinery bnmgut to bear on the Chicago Convention. Bless* yon, any gold juggler knows how to do that, only to show t’ c country that even toe promise of peace v ill bring gold down by the run, and relieve -je of all our nalKna! ill. Bui loyol men, and working men, (not Banshee McComas) know that to cea*e from this war, without having accomplUhed its purposes, is the tri umph of the rebellion and the ruin of the nation beyond redemption. lludZimripeace who slew his master? Advices from Mobile bt rebel sources give the highly probable statement that a Federal land force has left Pensacola to co operate. Neither Gen. Stedmau nor CoL Strelght were killed In tbe recent battle at Dalton. Two gallant officers arc thus still spared to he country and tbe cause. There arc as yet no detailed advices as to our precise quota In Cook county. There is every reason to believe it will not be‘ much reduced from the figure before given unless extra dilligcuce of all concerned purges the enrollment list of several thousand exempts. This can and should be done. From all parte of the country come hints of preparation for the approaching draft. Let honest loyal men study the crowd that Trill evranu into oar city 'within the present and coming w*=.ek. Life long tools are they of the straggling dy nasty of the SUve Power; sympa thizers throughout with rebels In arms; traitors who have never given the war a loyal word or thought; pnane-shriekcrs he* cause peace is to give the r-belllon success: banded to resist the draft, Vcanse more men will end the war by savlngthenatlou. When these are all collected in their amphitheatre could the late of Dathan and AMram’s false crew overtake them, earth would breathe freer to find them gathered to the traitors ol tbs firtl revolt And the sudden irruption of so many uneasy spirits to pis realm might well startle the first parents of Secession.

Our advices irom Sheridan’s army are to yesterday noon. Your correspondent at Harper’s Ferry reports that the skirmish fir ing of Monday morning, which died away at ten o’clock, was renewed again at noon on Monday, and kept up in a mild manner all the afternoon. Just os it was coming dark, a very considerable movement of the enemy’s cavalry in front of our right was observed, and It was thought they meditated an assault. They lound cur forces ready, and nothing come of the demonstration. During the afternoon and night a strong line of entrenchments was thrown up by onr men. The rebels were also throwing up works though [it was not believed they were in much force in our immediate front. Yesterday morning the skirmishing was resumed with more than usual vigor, and our line was advanced on the left a short distance. The enemy’s fire was mainly di rected at onr center, held by the 39th corps. Up to noon nothing serious had resulted. There was some change of troops during the night. The motion of the enemy seems to Indicate that they are trying to work down to the river above Harper’s Ferry. Reports of three or lour hours later say Avcrill has been shelling the woods in his front Tbe situation is regarded without any apprehension by our officers. PROM GRANT’S COMMAND. Advices from below Petersburg are to the effect that there has been no fighting since Sunday. Early on Monday morning a recon* noissance, ordered by Gen. Warren, devel oped the fact that the enemy has withdrawn from the line of the Weldon railroad. What his intentions are is not known. He kept up some firing on our center daring Monday and Monday night. Our forces were quiet during .Tuesday forenoon, and were so strongly en trenched that they could not easily be driven away. From the region of Butler’s canal there is simply the assurance that all is wclL FROM SHERMAN’5 COMMAND.- Gen. Sherman telegraphs that everything Is going on well in his section. In the ab sence of more definite news from him It is not to be inferred that there is trouble or disaster, for he is lying still waiting the re sults of movements in other quarters. All reports that he-has said that Atlanta wil be ours In a week or two.

As IbeSth of September approaches every body begins to feel anxious about the draft Little else is talked about Just now.

Hi* Stirring Proclamation on Threat ened Resistance to the Cumin ir Droit. Cincinnati, Wednesday, Aug. 24—Gov. Brough has issued a proclamation to persons in Ohio who arc preparing to resist the draft, warning them to desist from such a purpose. It is a strong and patriotic appeal to loyal men to observe their duties to their common country, and a strong warning to traitors within the borders oi Ohio to desist from oil tempts to oppose the constituted authori ties. The Governor soys: However unwilling to believe that any consid erable portion, of the people of this Stafe would array themselves in a spirit of foctlous. It not trea sonable, Deposition to tbe execution of the laws of the land, there arc Indications of such a spirit in the State, which, as Chief Magistrate, I may not disregard. • • • • • The who supposes that cither the National or State Government is unadvised of, or unprepared for tbe threatened emergency. Is following the deception of bis leaders to consequences of tbe most serious character.' After reciting the act of Congress approv ed July olet, 1304, To dejlne and puui’h ctfT tainconspirncier,” the Proclamation concludes as follows: Most earnestly do I appeal to the people of tbe State, not to engage in this forcible resistance to tbe laws, to which evil counselors and bad men arc leading them. It can not and will not euccoed. Its triumph, if it achieve any, must be of a mere temporary character. The government Is not weak. It is strong and powerful. It can not, and it will not permit any armed insurrection to Im peach its strength, or impair Its power, wbile con tendirg with the Southern rebellion. Ido not say this to you in any spirit ol intimidation, or In any threatening tone. I speak it to you as a warn ins, and with an imploring voice to hear and heed it. 1 brow what tbe determination of yoor govern ment is, and I fully comprehend the power at band to enforce it. What can yon, who contemplate armed resist ance, reasonably expect to gain by such a move ment? Ton cannot effectually nor permanently prevent the eniorcemcnt of tbe lane. Yon cannot in any wise Improve ycur own condition in the S resent, and must seriously injure it In the future, udiciousand conservative mec, who look to the supremacy of Government for the protection and safety of their persons and property, will not sym pathize nor co-operate with yon. You may commit crime: you may shed blood: you may destroy property; you may spread ruin and devastation over some localities of the State: you may give aid and comfort for a season to the rebels already in arms against the country; yonmay transier.for a brief time, the horrors of war from the fields of the South to those of the State of Ohio: you may paralyze prosperity, end create consternation and alarm among onr people.

From the commencement oi this rebellion, tbe Etate'of Ohio bus maintained a firm and inflexible position, which can not now be abandoned. In this internal danger that now threatens ns, 1 call upon all good citizens to assert and maintain tbe supremacy of the Constitution and the laws of the land. These constitute the great elements of our strength as a nation, and they are the bulwarks of onr people.

Falling in this, there is another duty, as citizens, from which we may not shrink, and to which 1 earnestly hope we may not be enforced. To those who threaten us with this evil, I say, we do not use any threats In return—there is no desire to provoke passion or create further irrita tion. Such men are earnestly aud solemnly in voked to abandon tbclr evil pnrpose: but at the same time tbev are warned that this invocation is. not prompted by any apprehension of tbe weak ness of tbe Government, or the success of tbe at tempts to destroy it.

[Special Dispatch to tbe Chicago Tribune.', Memphis. Tuesday, August 23,1 via Cauio, Wednesday August 21. J The rebels In heavy force entered this city this morcingcboutd o’clock. They plundered stables ransacked hotels, headquarters,, and had a jolly good time generally. Skirmishing between the Provost Guard and the rebejs was keptup for but eral hours. Finally tbe rebels retired and our forces followed. Heavy fighting 1s going on a this time of writing (13 o'clock) outride the city. Several dead rebel soldiers and horses are lying about the streets. A general officer was killed in ffentof tbe Gsyoeo Hotel. I did not learn his name or rank. Tbe hospital guard was shot in front of tie Washington Hospital, another on duty at the Gay oeo Hospital. O hx, o’clock p. M.—We ere driving the rebels Several wounded men have been brought in. Cal Starr, of the 6th Illinois cavalry, and the Lt Col. of the 137 th regiment Dlinols infantry, are severe* ly wounded. Rumor says that the 137 th Illinois—loo day men —and the 6th Illinois cavalry, or rather a detach ment of the 6th cavalry, have suffered severely. Col. Starr is said to have behaved very bravely. He had two horses shot .under him and gave op only when his third-horse was shot and himself wounded in the thigh; Haj. Gens, Waebotum and Hurlbut have been In the saddle all the morning, Forrest Is said to command tho rebels. I saw upon the Gayoso House register, entered by one of the rebel guests, “Maj. Gen. Forrest and staff.” The citizens south of Memphis were startled from their slumbers at an early hour on Monday morning, by tbe noise of musketry, accompanied by hooting and yelling and the rat ling of horses’ hoofs through the streets. Looking from the windows of their houses, they discovered groups of rebel cavalry flyleg In every, direction. In stantly the alarm sped through the city, and offi cers. soldiers and rushed to their respect ive camps and armories to prepare for defense. Tbe militia and provost gnard were soon ready for action. By this time tho rebels were scattered in squads through tbe city. Skirmishing became lively. Musketry was heard on all hands, and the excitement became Intense. The cry was, Forrest nas in town, but it was believed by only a few, from tbe fact that he was supposed to have his hands foil in Mississippi; but Forrest was here, sure enough, and was teen by many citizens. Sol diers going about tbe streets were halted and In many cases killed or wonnded by the rebels; and whenever a negro was seen, he was hotly pursued and shot down. About ton are reported killed. At this hour of writing, it Is impossible to tell how mory met that fate. Several rebels were killed by the provost gnard, and their .bodies leff for hoars on the streets, viewed by crowds or curious ■spec tators. Several prisoners were brought Into Irving Block, from one of whom we learned the follow ing: * On Thursday, at 12 o’closk, his regiment, tbs 16th Tennessee cavalry, were on picket duty at Ox ford, Miss., where Forrest and his command were stationed. A courier rode in hot baste to oar linos, and they were immediately ordered to Oxford that evening, at five o’clock, with 20 rounds ol ammunition and short rations. They lett with other regiments in a westerly direction, and after riding all night tak ing a semi-circle coarse, they struck the Missis sippi and Tennessee Railroad at Panola, 32 miles, early tbe next morning.- Here they were furnish td with b ! x days' rations, sixty additional rounds ol ammunition, past or which were carried in wagons, of which there were ten accompanying the expedition. They rode hard that (day, Friday, and in the evening encamped six miles above Como, At 4a. m., Saturday, they resumed the march and soon alter arrived at Hickahalia and Cold Water, where they bußt bridges and succeed ed in crossing about half an hour before sundown. The same evening they ha’.ted a while, after cross ing, to rest, and soon after started.on a quick pace hy the Hernando Road towards Memphis. At 3 • o’clock they dashed through our picket lines on the same road, and after brisk skirmishing, in which few were killed, end wounded, a portion of tbe forces entered the city. The expedition was under the command of Mftj. Gen. Forrest In person, and consisted of tho fob lowing regiments, with ionr guns, two of which were mired en route. 8d Tennessee cavalry—Col. Barlow. 12th Tennessee cavalry—Col. Nealcy. 14lh Tennessee caval^ - —Col. Logwood. 15th Tennessee cavalrr—Col. Stewart. 16th Tcqneesee Col. N. Wilson. Jlst Tennessee cavalry-Col. John Newsom. Sfid Tennessee cavalry—Col. Bussell. 2d Missouri cavalry—Col. Bob McCullough. 18lh Mississippi cavalry—Col. Chalmers. On Saturday night oni informant stated special orders were Issued to several regiments to the effect that any man fonnd dismounting or leaving Ihc ranks while in Memphis would bo shot. And horse stealing and other depredations were pro hlbltcd on the same penalty. This order, It la be lleved, was to prevent desertion and straggling. About half of the force entered the city, the other half remaining outside the lines as a guard to pre vent their retreat from being ent off, The 2d Musouri. IClh Tennessee, and 16th Mississippi were among the force entering the city. Arrivicg at Beal street, the rebels divided off in several squads, and struck for tbc Gnyoeo House, tfco hospitals. Irving Block and Gen. Washburn’s head quarters on Union street. The Litter were visited by a force of about £OO, under Lieut. Col.Jcsrc Forrest, who enteredjand fonnd It deserted, the General and staff having but a moment before es caped. They received warning from Col. Starr, of the 6th Illinois cavalry, of the approach of tho rebels. He had been at the front and dashed in ahead. Tho General sought refuge in tho fort and escaped. His staff also escaped. Blent. Col. Forrest remained In the head quarters some fifteen mlnntcs, end brought for h Gen. Washburn’s overcoat and some papers, alter which he started for the Qayoso House with his force. They drove right into the office of the hotel until it was crowded to excess with horses and men, and inquired for Gen. Hurlbut, whom they wished delivered np. The clerk, Ur. Beck, who was be bird tbc office counter, informed them that he was not in the botch The rebels called him a d d liar, and eaid they knew better, demanding the number offals room. It was given, and the rebels dismounting and leaving their horses standing in the office, ascended totbe upper floors, and bar tered in two thirds ol the doors through the house In their search for Gen. Haricot. The General, however, was fortunately at the residence of Cel. Eddy, on Shelby street, whither he bad goue the night before. Cupt. Cook of his staff was in the hotel, and escaped capture, after a sharp cnconntcr with three rebels, who entered his room to take him prisoner. Further than breaking in the doors the rebels committed no depredation la tbc rooms. The furniture was not molested. Considerable money and jewelry, as well as clothing, were taken from the boarders, eome of whom were taken prisoners, hot subsequently re leased. J Heat. Harrington, of the 3rd U. S. artillery, was in the office when the rebels first appeared. They made him prisoner and placed mm behind the counter with Mr. Berthold. While there, a ballet coming through the window from tho street, pierced his head, killing him instantly. His per son was immediately plundered The Quartermaster of the 7th Illinois cavalry is said to have been killed. A private was shot at the door. Private Alex. McGowan, of the Sth lowa, who wns on caard, was taken prisoner. A part/of 20 or 30 rebels, while tola was going on at the hotel, amnsed themselves by attacking the house of firo engine No. 5, nearly opposite. Charles Roach and Ed Boswell were on duty there. The former was killed and the latter escaped. Two surgeons were killed on the bluff at the foot of Monroe street. Another force of rebels stopped at the Union House, corner of Bcolt and second streets, and were about to sack it, when an old lady from the State of Mississippi stopping at the house who was acquainted will eome of the rebel officers and persuaded them to desist. They then started for the Bulletin office, and breaking the locks at Irvingßlock, they called upon the prisoners within to break loose, as they had an opportunity of escaping,. and then fired upon the guards in the yard. The latter rushed up through the prison, appeared at the upper windows, and simultaneously with a portion of the 6lh lowa, who appeared at the comer of Court street, opened a sharp fire upon tho rebels, who skedaddled with a loss of one or two wounded. But for the timely arrival of the Eighth lowa regiment, who seemed to be everywhere do ing excellent service in tho right time, the prisoners at Irving Block might have been released and the Bulletin office sacked. Several bondred rebels murderously sacked tbc Gaj* o Hospital. They first called upon private 31. Jones, of the 140 th HI., who was on guard, at the entrance, to surrender. He refused and was in- Instantly fired upon. A number of snots were fired before the rebels cried out 44 that Is a hospital, h'dya don’t fire.” They desisted, and a portion went around to the rear. Dr. Burke was standing by his private office when the rebels fired, and he had a narrow es cape. In the rear they captured six invalid sol diers whom they carried off. .Obo poor fellow, un able to keep np with the rebel cavalry, was shot down. His name was TosUh T. Roberts. His wound is in the shonldcr and very painful. Jack son Morrison, 24ih Mo.: David Brown, 21st Mo.; Wm. Timmens,27ih Ohio., and David Picket cf HSih lowa, were taken prisoners. Gen. Dockland with hfs staff turned ont prompt ly and rode through the streets collecting forces and organizing resistance, and whea It was dis covered that the rebels had retired he prepared for rapid pursuit. Gen. Washburn, when ho escaped, repaired to the fort, and from thence issued bis orders for collcctlugforces to meet the Invaders.' In about an boor he returned to his headquarters which had been pillaged of papers nnd an old coat or two. The rebel dash failed in Its great object, the capture of Gen. Washburn. It was a miser able failure as it cost the rebels men and wear ot horses, and it accomplished nothing ol the slight est militaryconsequence. „ ... It is not unlikely that Gen. Smith may meet the rebels as they fly from oar forces. At last ac-’ counts there bad been fighting at Nocsonnah be tween the rebels and their pursuers. Three of the tfx days’ rations with which the rebels started from Oxford have already been need up, and their escape Is exceedingly doubtful. Duringthefighting Col. Stone, who distinguished hlmeelf by bravery, was severely wounded, a short distance from the city, while uarenin™, the rebels with such force as he could collect. The number of rebels killed, wounded and raptured is conside rable—perhaps seventy or eighty in aIL The final result maybe yet more disastrous to the invaders. Their first check was at Irving Block, where they stood lor only a single fire of the guards. Gen. Dostan evinced tho utmost promptitude. When the alarm was given, he found eight men and marched on the double quick lor Gen. Wash bum’s headquarters, but was confronted bv eighty rebels, who exchanged shots with his little com pany, which was marched toward Main street and received additions of several officers and some twenty Federal* and militia. While these and other proceedings were going on. the militia ha«tily collected under Gen. Bos ton, and rendered valuable sendees at various points. They have shown tost they can be de pended upon m time ot need, v olnnteers were al so busily engaged, and harrassed the enemy con siderably. At 9 pxlockp. m, Uw rebels finding the city genic/ too lot for them, suddenly retreated pack into tbe country, going through Beal street-, baring remained two hours In ttae city and accom pli-feed nothing more than tbe capture of about SCO citizens and straggling pointers and 100 horses and mnJeu. The rebel prisoners above referred to also informed us that the Kentucky brigade dotilled to hate Oxford with tbe expedition, dercrtel entire on the route. Their trim of service expired on the 3at of August. They were unwilling to do any tnpredgbting. They returned to their homes’ , Eesta T ed.ihat Gen. A. J. Smith’s force was at Abbeville, and that they eluded him by taamg a course as above, lie does not know the object of ths expedilon. - The capture of Generals Washburn and Hurlbut, no doubt, was its main object. As to plundering stoics, perhaps they were kept too busily qq paced. A force of considerable strength was sent In fiursmt and an engagement took plsce near the ‘nee. in which CoL‘Starr, Cth 111. civalrr was Seriously w onnded in the thigh, and CoL Hendrick in the face— they were brongot in. Joseph Fa!- . E* Cushman, of the 7th 111. cavalrv, were slightly wounded. The rebels again retreated, and at last accounts were across -Nonconmh. Our forces arc In hot pursuit. It la thought they can not escape capture. It i* thought by military men that Forrest, find in" himself nnable to cope with Gen. Smith, made this adventurous but profitless raid for effect We are informed thatafter his retreat from the city Forrest sent in a of truce asking for an each ergo of prisoners, whlehwas denied. Fred. K. Holman, citizen, with' two soldiers' whose names we did not learn, executed a bold feat. They were standing on Beal street armed, when six rebels dashed no. The? were ordered to halt and surrender. The rebels fired with no e Tcct. Holman and his companions, who had not fired, leveled their muskets and again ordered them to surrender, which they did. They had no oppor tunity to reload. They were disarmed and banded ever to an officer. Their guns, were given to necroea. One of the Bth lowa encountered a rebel Id front of the post-office and ordered him to halt, Tbe rebel tired and wounding him In the leg, the enaid then fired, shooting him dead on tbe spot, tbe hall entering his neck. lie was recognized as John Stokes, formerly of this city, from which place ho enlisted seven! years ago into tbe rebel He bad a mother and sister who hid both remained here. A rebel soldier named Char. Itivere, of Jackson, Teno., was fatally wounded In the breast on Beal street, and was removed to the honseofilrs. Tuft. An unknown man in citizen’s drees was shot dead by the rebels on the same street. It is said that a rebel Colonel and fifty prisoners have been captured since morning and taken to Fort Pickering. .

The Soldiers' Home, on Baltimore street, was entered and a ccmber of the inmates captured. A. the African congregation was shot at the corner ol Second and Beall streets. A num ber of negroes were shot In different parts of the Michael Llstam, a oravc member of tbe fire de partment, who was two years ago captured while an overseer at Union depot, on tbe Mobile and Ohio railroad, and taken to Hatchie Bottom, where be was robbed of SIOO, bearing tbe firing this morning, and learning that the rebels had entered Memphis, he sallied oat to fight them. Coming across one who had been slightly wonnded la one arm by a shot from .the Irving Biock guards, he was about to shoot him, when tbe rebel surren dered. A squad of rebels were fighting at Irving’ Block at the time, but Ligtan managed to convey his prisoner from the other side of Court Square toNp. 1 Engine House, where the rebel was kept until his comrades retreated, when he was taken to Irvine Block and handedover to the authorities for sale keeping. There were' a number of instances of women firing from windows on the rebel Invaders, and this seemed to be exceedingly unpleasant to them. They expected men to flre,on them, but not wo men. llr.P. G. Ware sallied cut as soon aathcalarti was given, fired a shot-gun at theretreating rebels, end then procunrg another gnu pursued tbem some dl-lance. when the rebels surrounded the block in which Gen, Washburn resides, they searched all tbe houses and captured all the men whom they found. They were go unwilling to give up the search for Gen. Washbume that after haul ing through every room in his building they went upon tbe roof to ►ee if fce might not be th s re. In one bouse they foatd Copt uinstcrfleld, ot Co, B, 8d regiment E. it Div. They asked hia wife if there was any damned Yankees there. They told Capt Hlnsterfle.d to come along as a prisoner. He asked permission to put on his boots, and io enter tain his guests he produced a bottle of whisky. They liked it, and be went into tho next room to h ok for hl« boots, but forget to return, and when they went to look for him be was not to he found. They found £. Lowenstloe, a wealthy Israelite, who keeps a store under Odd Fellows’ Hall, at his residence, and ordered him to accompany tbem. He thought It was the militia, and responded, “ Shentiemens. shentiemens, I no soldier; I got exemption.*’ But. unfortunately, this plea did not avail,' nd be bad to go along. Ot tbe guards at U«n. Washburn's residence, ten were captured, but one, after firing at tbe rebels effected bis escape. Among tbe meanest acts of tbe Invaders was the robbing of newsboys whom I hey met ol all Bulletins in their possession. 1 ive (rebels were captured on Beal street near the market. 'Gen. Forrest was at one time ob served conversing with some ladies at a bouse on Hemando road. It is Impossible to obtain correct estimates of the number of citizens, soldiers and negroes killed end wounded. £»iliuates vary from 30 to CO. We Uarn from a rebel prisoner that Colonels Mabnm s and Holmes brigades were at Oxford, holding General Smith .Ue also states that their horses ore poor and 111-fed. About two hundred artillery shots were fired. In the nclebood of the State Femato College, where a brisk fight occurred. The College was struck Ecwral times. Two companies of Feder al were in it. Five rebels, shot through the head, were left dead in front of it: also a back-driver of this city, with a pass dated Saturday. It Is supposed that by misrepresentations he obtained It, and went through the lines yesterday as a guard. The Hernando road and the camp ground of the 337t0 Illinois are strewn with dead rebel horses.*' A Union soldier was captured and dis armed by a rebel on lac Hernando road, apd com pelled to monnt behind him. He bad a pistol In bis pocket, however, which the rebel missed. Drawing It, ho stuck the muzzle In the rebel’s face and ordeied him to drive as be told him. The rebel complied, and is nova prisoner at Fort Columbus. John McDonald, Colonel commanding militia, was captured at the Gayoso House and carried ont on the retreat, but finally escaped minus his hat, coat, money. Jewelry, etc. Negroe* were running In every direction, beg (iogfor arms. The militia turned ont In large force, and did grol service Mr. Sam. Pease was robbed of a considerable amount in money and jewelry. Mr. Snowden, re sidue nt the corner of Vance and Be Soto streets, was badly wonnded while looking from a window Coming through our lines the rebels caotnred two gnus and a number of men of the 7th Wiscon sin Battery together with a few hundred daymen, but were obliged to leave the guns In their retreat. By 0 o’c.cck the scare had entirely subsided and the rebel raid was regarded as agook Joke and a poor speculation on the part of tbc bugbear For rest. Rebel prisoners vary greatly in their estimation of the nnmbcr of rebel raiders. Some say the In vading force was composed of Neely and Bell’s brigades and another battalion. Others say there were two. three or four brigades. They numbered from 1,500 to 3,000 men, all cavalry. Some of the pickets mi de a stubborn resistance, and the alarm was given to tbo 7th Wisconsin ana 6tb lowa. The rebels did not siop to fight bat da-bed Into the city. Col. Starr, of tho Cth lowa, reached Gen. Washburn's residence a lew minutes before the rebels arrived. He informed the General that the rebels had lorced their passago-by the guards and he should rave himself. Gen. Washburn looked out of hie bedroom win dow as the column of rebels dashed up the street towards his headquarters. Next he passed out the back way and went round towards bis head quarters to 6to what was going on and to take measures for concentrating forces at eome point. As bo stood in Union street, a short distance above bis headquarters, the second rebel column was seen dashing down. Ceveon street towards him. ile started to get away. The rebels called to him ro bat he did not do it. They then fired a - number of shots at him. but os he had no shoulder strap* cu or olher insignia of rank they did not recognise him. He without receiving further In terruption or tbe slightest Injury made his way to the Fort. The rebels doubtless supposed be was some private soldier and hoped to capture bigger game. They did rot find Gen. Washburn at his headquarters, but they captured Lieut. Klnzle, a member ut his stair, and also several clerks They proceeded to Gen. Washburn’s residence but ho was not there. They barbarously nred on tbe pa tients In tbe hospital, shot several sick soldiers whom they took prisoners, and made , o demon stration on Irving Block, hut met stubborn resis tance and left. Squab* made demonstrations on other points, hot accomplished very little, and after about an hour s stay, retired from tho city on the double a nick, by tbe Hernando road, pursued by General uetuu.aud such Federal cavalry aa coaid be Im mediately procured. They took with them about ICO prisoners, mostly one hundred day men, and pernapse a hundred boraes, Gen. Washbura lost a couple of flue horses. Tbo rebels were not able to carry off any other plun der. Tbe Sth lowa boys fired on them whenever they made their appearance about tbe streets. Quite a number of rebels were killed or captured. They marcoco to Court Square, which could be defer ded against any force of cavalry that could be brought against them, but finding they had not a sufficient/ of ammunition, Geo. Dostan marched to the armory of tbe 2d regiment, where Col. Bell, of the Bth lowa, had drawn ont two companies of Lis men. Gen. Dutton’s company was merged with lbe?e. Gen. Buckland, who had been awakened by a colored man, promptly turned ont to confront the rebs, and then led one hundred of his soldiers, tbns drawn out, through Third street, while Gen. Dnstan, with .eighty men, passed through Fourth street, his object being to get tbe rebels between two fires, but they tot out by De Sota street, and were pursued to the picket hues, where they were turned over to Col. Bell, to whoso command most of them belonged. . When alarm was first r glveo, by firing cannon, as a signal for the militia to repair to their several armories, and Just after thereoel check at Irvli.g Block, the rebeUftooka scare. Tney seemed to have imagined that cannonading against them was begun at some point, and they at once commenced to retire with the utmost promptitude. A great majority of militia repaired to their armories, and without exception evincing cheerfelness and readl nees to confront the rebels. Under General Dns- Un'e directions they with vigorous celerity tore up every oildge between the Mlssissippi'ilvor and Beal street, over tbe bayou, and then erected barri cades, behind which they felt confident they could successfully defend ..themselves. Tbe m'lltiaof Memphis have been ridiculed and under-valued, but in this emergency it baa shown moat gratify ing bravery and patriotism. Officers and men without exception, vied with brave Federal sol diers Id cheerful readiness to meet the ecemy. Oar reporters were In all parts of the city daring the whole day, and have not heird a single in cance in which any officer or soldier of either the Regular Army or Militia failed to do his duty. Gens. Washburn and Buckland warmly compli ment tte militia, whose conduct far exceeded ex pectations. Gou. Dostan is enthusiastic in his appreciation of the militia, whose manner when they expected a hard fitht. bad ail the cbeerJal confidence of veterans. To eat that the Bth lona and other regular sol diers dldthelrwholedaiylsa scant praise, whe ther sin ply or in companies, as officers or as pri vates. when they confronted tbe rebs they lu every instance ebuwrd themselves worthy defend irs of the Stars and Stripes. Col. Bell aud hi-* command are now at the front.and they never qnall before rebel foemen. A noticeable feature ot this affair is tbe fact that the whole rebel force retreat ed before 180 men under Gens. Buckland and Das tan. An other account says Gen. Buckland and staff cot together a portion or the Sth lowa. They doubled-qnlcked down Third atree', when the rebels said- 44 there’s fits coming,” Hud then put spurs to their horses and precipitately fled. They were promptly followed by a few cavalry from tue city uutQ Ucy reached the outer picket line where Ihe rebels made a stubborn stand. Tbe garrlioa was promptly formed, aud under the atupicea of our District Commander and attaeheea were ad vanced* Tbe cavalry did well; under such com mandfer; as Cols. Starr, Prince, and Winslow, they were bests in themselves. Fur more than two 'bants the rebels fooett desperately, and h id it not been for tbe determination of the Union forces they might buve held their ground no v. While forces ol experience were engaged at tbe from, sculh and east of the city, Gen. Dustin, with tbe militia, assisted by several members of bis stuff held the north tnd northeast of tbe city bat it Is proper to state that they operated In con nection with'be regular forces ot the garrison, Consisting of Kincaid’s and Wood’s brlgadeacimp ed on that portion of tbe line. - - As our forces advanced under a heavy lire, cover ed by battery O, 2a Illinois Artillery and 7tb Wis consin,; who cid nobly, tbe raiders fell back, and by 4 o’clock they were in fall retreat, closely fol lowed by our cavalry. By 12 o’clock all was quiet in our front. To ureveut a flunk movement, al though holding our or (dual line, a force was sent to our left, but wc found that part of our line well protected by forces camped lu the vicinity, ably supported by militia. - Lteut. Irvin, ot the Bth lowa, was wounded by the rebel raiders and baa since died. A soldier named Juak, of tbe same regiment, is said to be mortally wounded. Another private, while in Ecal street, was fired on by the rebels, who came through Turley street, and struck In the back by five shots. Nat Reeves, who was taken prisoner, got off, and with one old shoe to his feet returned to the city. Chas. Reeves, wbo is wounded and is lying at Mrs. Tails', I? reported dead. Tbe men wbo were taken prisoners by tbe rebels at the cor ner of Beal and Hernaudo streets, escaped and are hack In the city. The body or John Stokes, tbe rebel wbo was killed at the postofflee, was yes terday taken to the dead-house. Dr. Crittenden, a well known citizen of Memphis, was roughly handled at tbe Gayoso House, but was not taken prisoner. Idseatdoacofthemostefflclentguidea the rebels had In coming into the city was a man who comes v« ry frequently Into the city with wagon loads of watermelons for sale. Maj. W. R. Lackland, Chief of Pickets, started at an early hoar for headquarters and tbe camp of tbe 187ih Illinois regiment, on ttae Hernando road. He had gone half or three-quarters of a mile on the Hernando road, when be was luiormed by citi zens that tbe enemy was just ahead. On going farther, he met one of our men, wbo Informed him that our cavalry were a little way before h ro. Potting spurs to his horse, be rode forward and scon overtook and rode into the line, which be then discovered was not our men, but the rebel- in retreat. They had a number of prison ers, mostly blacks, whom they were hurrying for ward. The rebels were In considerable disorder. The tegro prisoners were mainly irom the Cist negro regiment. Maj. Lackland, when be discovered hfs mistake, said nothing, bat sparred his • horse right through the rebel lines.. Ho had gone but a short distance when a rebel officer nude a pass at him with sabre, which fortunately missed him. hue indicted a cut four laches long on tbe of his horse. Tbe Major kept on trying to force bis way through, and the line became greatly disor dered at that plsce. Many of the rebels called to him to surrender, but bo kept on from right to left, and not one of the rebels had presence of mind to seize the bridle of his horse or to shoot at him. When begot through the lines, bepit spurs to bis horse, pursued by seven rebels. Three soon held up, but four kept on lor aboat 450 yards. He had to leap a deep ditch. Ibis somewhat checked the rebel*, bnt they kept on until a volley from seven or eight Federal infantry on the hill made thorn holdup. Just at this point tbe body of a rebel Captain (Lundy) was subsequently found, and tho luterenco Is that he was killed by tbovoiiey tbit gave relief to Maj. Lackland When the rebels came toward our pickets they seemed to have abody of picked men In. front, and were not perceived until within three or four hun dred yards cf our picket", wbo had only time to fire twice before the rebels wereupon them. There weretbree or four hundred wbo rode Btrdl»ht for ward : others turned into the camp of the I37th Hllnois, and begun firing promiscuously. Our men returned tne fire, and fell hack to form, which they did promptly. They then took a good posi tion, and soon drove the rebels from the camp into the wood, part of the retintut then taking a defensible position held It, and the robe's made three desperate charges, coming within four feet ol ottrmen, bnt were driven back In disorder. £ even of the rebels were found after a while at the place Many of tbe rebels were wounded. The loss of a portion of tbe 137 th in these desperate contests there was 7 killed and several wonnded. all of them slightly. Noth ing coaid be more determined thwn the conductor tbe members of the lS7tb, who participated in the fighting yesterday. Tbe Major’s horse was shot* The Quartermas ter of the regiment was shot and is not probably now alive. In the fight here yesterday' there were enraged tbe larger or smaller portion* of the-list Wiscon sin, Sth lowa, USth Illinois, 113 th Illinois and 331et Illinois. They all acted with thcutmost’coolneas and brave ry and no officers and men coaid have done their duty belter than cure yesterday without a single exception. Perhaps tne Sth lowa and 137 th Hli io:s bore the brunt of tbe fight. Tbe 7ch Illinois cavalry acted nobly. The cooluess and bravery of ibo hnidrtd days’ men was a matter of general commendation. • A small body of the 7th Illinois cavalry behaved admirably. An officer rode over the whole field and vis ited every point ■where fighting bad token place yesterday. Ue say» that two of the enemy were Killed or wounded to one of oars. Capt. Cook, of Qen.Hnrlimt’s staff was robbed of $2,C00 by the rebels who entered his room at theGayacoHonso. A pass was fonnd npon tho body of the rebel soldier Stokes, who.was killed at the postoffice, at dit is said that be has been in and out of the Ur eg frequently for several days post as a civilian. S. C. Hardwick and F. Ji.xEdwards, with numer ous other citizens, were lodged in the Block yes* terdav, for the ntterance of treasonable langmige. They said they hoped that Forrest would lose Memphis and kLI or drive gut every damned Yon see iu It. The Block was comfortably filled lost night with traitors and secesh sympathizers not wise enough to bold their longues. No steamboats were al lowed to unload frclcht yesterday. It was repor ted yesterday that the rebels had captured a bat tery, but it Is entirely without foundation. Thev never spiked er moved a cun, so soon were they driven from their position. Many blscks were yesterday clamorous to be supplied with arms and ordnance tor home defense. A gocd mas; were ?cared, bat some wanted badly to debt. Lieut. Col. Bell, of tbo Bth lowa, with portions of bis own regiment and the inth Ibintde. 120 men all told, pursued the enemy down the Hernando road, skirmishing for eomedistance. They turned and drove oar skirmishers back, aad a bfcverc debt ensued. The rebels suffered heavily and Col. Bell’s men scarcely at all. Fearing that his regiment would be surrounded and overpow ered, Col. Bell made a flank movement, and when * he supposed he was beyond mnsket range, heagain formed front,-bat a reoel volley killed Lient. Ir win and wounded several men. Col. Bell's loss altogether, me killed and about fourteen wounded. The bar at the Gavoso House was not molested by the rebels The cigar stand in the office was plan dered. The *afe waa untouched. The telegraphic communication between this city and Collierville wts broken yesterday morning, hut is now re stored. and oil Is quiet In that direction. A soldier near Gen. Washburn’s headquarters, when be found he was surrounded and unarmed, threw himself into a lot of weeds and escaped ob servance. While lying hid he heard rebel sympa thizing citizens of alemptals near him expressing their gratification at the raid, and their hopes that it would be successful in captaring Gen. Wash bum, and their good wishes for the rebel cause. Last evening three citizens were locked up la Irving Block. John Stacks, who was killed at theFoatoffice, was one of three or four who had just been made prisoners bv the guard at Gen. Grierson’s head quarters. When Stacks and bis horse fell the oth er rebels* became scared and no other! prisoners effected their escape. A rebel who had his leg ahaitcrod beeged the oUlcers who found him not to let Ibe neurocs murder him. He seemed to be in intense fear of this, and when taken to the honao of air. Johnson was vecygratefttl. Ho states that he was one of Gen. Forrest’s body guard, and that Forrest has 2,500 men, all mounted, and efficient. The rebels carried off J, Benson, one gentleman, a telegraph operator, whom they found at head quarters. At the latest accounts received last night, the rebels were six or eight miles from the city.
