' ClMtUTI.N' A BEEHIVE BY CAPT. .'ERR WILLIAMS. 41 ? js. I know whore there u a Seeesh beeViu " SAtil Jlflk Phillina. nnc dnll mnralna while we were quartered on Cheat Mountain ' Summit. " Where is it?" asked one of hi* two hearers. " If yotx'11 promise to go along and help cumulate it, 1 11 tell you " " Count me one.' said Jed Wieks. " Count me half a doten, if yoa want that taaay," said Bill Ree?e. " But I'll tell you, boys, its dQwn at Robison's, on Cheat rirer. and worse than that, its in the kitchen loft; and still worse, he has two all&red bigeroas bloodboands.'' "Coma to think," said Jed Wieks, "Iharn't time to go." " I never agreed to go," said Bill Reese. 41 Look-a-here, fellers, I tell you we can 'cumulate that 'ere honey, and ef yoa fellers are afeerd to go, I can find somebody that ain't." This left-hander at their courage set them to warding off with other excuses "I'm not afeerd to go," said Jed, "but maybe Robisen is a Union man. and it wouldn't do, yon know." 44 Not by a dernd sight, he ain't. He's one of these cussed neutral Secesh that's ten times wuss than ?n out-an-outer. He carries new? to Greenbrier camp, and I'll prove it on him afore a week." 44 Bat, then." interposed Bill, 44 we can't get past the eamp guards; and if we could, it looks little too mnch like stealin'." 4lGittin'a past the guards ain't common amusement," said Jack; "jist pay you'll go, and the honey is ourn. And as to the moral pint, we'll go 'cordin' to law and custom, you know. Fast, demandin'of the Secesh bees to tak* the oath, they refusin*, we arrest them and confiscate their property. All fair and legal, you 3ee What's stealin' in time-* o' peaae is confiscatin" and 'cumuiatin' in time o' war. For stealin' you go to jail, hot for 'cumulatin you git promoted So, you see, in a moral pin't of view it*? mtirely different." Their qaalms of conscience being thus satis raetoruj disposed of. and Jack baring injured th*ir Mm against the hounds, they agreed to Sif he would get a pass to take them through raard Hoes. "Come right along, then,''said Jack, and tkay followed him to a remote beat where was walkiag, to aad fro, a German sentinel, who could not read English. After the usual challenge Jack advanced, aad. drawing from the fold* of bis pocket-hook a crumpled paper, read mt follows : . llT... fL.~, XT O _.'j IT- 1 Ootebw 18, 1801. j The guard will pus the burtr. and two comrades, on very important business. .Brigadier General Milrot." The German understood sane of this. except the name and title of the General, and Jacs, to prevent him from calling a corporal of the guard, looked very important, and made him understand that the General wished the expedition kept a profound secret. The sentinel deferentially stepped aside, and they passed on. " How in the dickens did yon gat that pas?, Jack ?" inquired Bill. " Pass be hanged ! It was nothing bat a little note RobL?on gent up to the General t'ntknr (1st bv mo nh iul tko l?*a aualin' from him I give it to him mash." 44 Bat what does the note say eagerly ia<Haired Bill. * Why, it says as how if the Oinral 'lows *ny of tha soldiers te come steaiia' about him, bis dogs shouldn't leave bar nor bide of 'em.

Says I, 4 keep a sharp look oat,' * and nmtioaed to him 'sptoially to keep his yagpeeied to-day Bill aad Jed slewed "Jwk," Mid Bill, "nay opinion is you're trying to git u? into an infernal scrape. ' Nary time, fallen; nary time. I jiat wanted thaSeceah cum to underrtaad that Jaek Phillipa 'cumulate that beehive if him and hie dega waa a-straddle of it.

After some farther asm ranees they proceeded, and when thjy approached the house they crept quietly through the laurel to take a re eoonoueance. I here gat Kobison in the very door through which they would have to pass in order to reach the beehive, and by the doorstep lay the two ferocious dogs. Appear iU??, certainly, were not very promUiBg, but Jaok quietly remarked, "all right, old feller." " Now Bill,'' Mid be, --you and Jed remain here, silent and still, until you bear me holler. and then doable-quick in, wrap a blanket around the beehive and bring it into the laurel up the pint. You needn't be afeer'd of RobiaoQ aad the dogs, they'll be tended to." Sayiag which Jack started toward the river. About two hundred yards from the boase was a footway across the river, that part farthereet from the house being a single plank. The water was three or four feet deep, swift aad oold, and the banks qaite bluff. la about half an hour from the timeJaek left His friends, Robison was startled by hearing a squawking in the direction of the bridge. and looking up saw jack crossing toe river with a chicken under his arm. "Hold on there, yon infernal scoundrel !" he shoated, 4,or I'll set the dogs on yoo. Here Tiger, here Maje," and he aud the dogs started on a ran. ??'Taint none of your chicken?' shouted Jack, feigning fright, " I bought it down ac the widder's. "Hold on, I tell you!" shouted the enraged Kobiaoo, aad I'll see whose it i3, you Yankee thief." Jaek stopped at the further end of the footway, and stood with his toe under one end of the plaak. while Robiaon advanced from the other, shaking his first and exslaiming : " I'll teach vou to come here stealin' you pilferin , scoundrelly abolition?

A magaiine publish?* the following, from the pen of a late traveler in South Carolina : The rain waa falling In torrents, and the night was aa "dark u the darkest collier of the dark plaoe below " We were in the midst of what seemod an endlets forest of turpantine pines, and had seen no habitation for hours. Not knowing where the road might lead us, and feeling totally usable to prooeed, we determined to ask shelter at the shanty for the night. In answer to oar summon*, a wretched-looking. half-clad, dirt-bedraggled woman, throat her head from the doorwaj, with the inquiry, "Who are ye?" . " We'm 011I7 mafia and me and the hou, and we'm half dead wid the cold," said Soipio; "can't we oum in oat oh the rain?" " Wal, stranger*," replied the woman, eye* mg as as closely u the darkness would permit, "you'll find mighty poor fixins har, but I reckon ye can come in." Entering the house we saw by the light of a blazing pile of pine knoU which roared and crackled on the hearth, that it contained only a tingle apartment, about 20 feet square. la front of the fireplace, which oocupied the better half of one side of the room, the floor was of the bare earth, littered over with pine chips, dead cinder, live coals, brazen pot* and a lazy spaniel dog. Opposite to this, at the other end of the room, were two low beds, which looked as if tbey had been '-slept in forever, and never made up.'' Against the wall, between the beds and the fire-place, stood a small pine table, and on it was a large wooden bowl, rrom whose month protruded the handles of several unwtufcpd pewter spoons. On the right of the fire was a razeed rooking chair, evidently peculiar property of the mistress of the mansion, and three blocks of pine logs, sawed off smoothly, and made to serve for se*U. Over against these towered a high-backed ?ette?, something like that on which "aot Huldv all alone, When Zeke peeked thru the winder;" and on it?her head resting partly on her arm, nartlv on the end of the settle, one small hars I foot pressing on the ground, the other, with the | part of the person which is aopposed to require stockings, extended on a horisontal direction? reclined, not Huldy, bat her Southern oousin. who, I will wager, was decidedly the prettier and dirter of the two Our entrance did not eem to disconcert her in the least, for she lay there as unmoved as a marble statue, her large black eye riveted on my face as if seeing some ondescript animal for the first time.

FURTHER DETAILS OF THE GREAT BATTLE IN TENNESSEE. Th? Blitdlfit and Mtit Dupirttf Engagement of Modern TIbfi!! Below will be found the New York Herald'# report of the great battle at Pittsburg Landing, Tenneaaee, of which we gave a synopals yeatetday: Pittsbu*0, Tenn , via Fort Henry, April 8,3.20 a. m?One of the greatest and bloodiest battle* of modern day* baa jnat cloaed, remltlng In the complete rout of the enemy, who attacked u* In force at daybreak ou Sunday morning, the 6th tnatant. The battle laated without Intermlaalnn during the entire day, ar.d waa again renewed on Monday morning, and continued nnheeded until four o'clock In the afternoon, when the enemy commenced to retreat, and Is atlll flying towarda Corinth, pursued by a large force of our cavalry. The slaughter on both aide* bai been lmmenae. We hnre lost In killed and wounded and missing from IP,000 to 20 000, whilst that of the enemy la eati mated at from 35,000 to 60,000. Tbefi^ht waa brought on by 300 of the 25th Missouri regiment of Gen. Prentiss' division attacking the advance guard of tbe rebel*, which were supposed to be the plcketa of the enemy. The ribels Immediately advanced on Gen Prentiss' division, on the left wing, pouring in volley after volley of musketry, and riddling our camps with grape, caniater and shell. Our force* soon formed into line of battle, and returned the Are vigorously, and by the time we were prepared to receive them they had turned thetr heaviest Are on the left and centre of Gen Sherman's division, and drove our men back from their camps, and bringing up a fresh force opened fire on our l^ft wing, ur.der Gen McCleruand. The lire was returned with terrible effect and determined spirit by both lnfantrv and artillery along the whole line, a distance of ever four mile*. Gm. Hurlburt's division was thrown forward to support tbe center, when a desperate conflict ensued The rebels were now driven bickwlth. u-rrioie siau^&tT, but soon rallied and drove back our men la turn. From about it o'clock until night closcd there wai no determination of the result of the struggle. The rebels exhibited remarkable good generalship; at times engaging the left with apparently their whole strength, thev would suddenly open a terribly destructive on the right or center. Even our heaviest and most destructive fire upon the enemy did not appear sensibly to discourage their solid columns. The fire of Maj. Taylor's Chicago artillery raktd tbem and mowed them down In scores, but the smoke was no sooner dispersed than the breach was ag; In filled. Thp must dcaperate fighting took place late in the afternoon Gen. Buell's force* bad by this time arrived on the opposite side of the river, and another portion was coming up the river from Savannah. At 5 o'clock the rebel* bad forced our left wing me*, so a? *o occupy luily two-third* of our camp, and were lighting In their effort! to drive us into the river, and at the same time heavily engaged our right. L p to UiU time we had received do reinforcement, Gen. Lew. Wallace failing to come to our support until the day wai over, having taken the wrong road from Crump's Landing, and being without other transport* than those used for the quartermaster** and commissary stores, which were too heavily lad?ned to ferry any considerate number of General Buell'* force* acroea the 1 river, those that were there having been sent to bring up troop* from Savannah. We were, therefore. contesting against fearful odds, our force* not excef dini 3^,UO0 men, while that of the enemy was upwards of 6v),000. Oar condition at this moment was extremely critical. Large numbers of our men were panicstricken, and others were worn out by hard fighting, with the average per centage of skulkers, who bad straggled towards the river, and could not, for the time, be rallied. Geu. brant and his stall, who had been reckleisly riding along the lines the entire day, amid increasing storms of bullets, grape and shell, now rode from right to left, inciting the men to stand firm until our reinforcements oouid cross the river. Col. Webster, chief of the staff, Immediately get into position their Heaviest piece* of artillery, pointing on the enemv's right, while a large number ol our batteries were planted along the eatir* 11 fie, from the river bank northwest to our extreme right, M>me two and a half miles distant. About an hour before dusk a general cannonading wasopened upon the enemy from along the whole line, with a perpetual crack of musketry. For a short time the rebels replied with vigor and eflW-t, but tjielr return nhota grew leu* and less frequent and destructive, while oura grew more and more rapid and mere terrible. The gunboats Lexington and Tyler, which lay a short distance off, kept raining shell upon the rebel lines Tbls last effort w&s U?o much for the enemy, and ere du^k bis tiring bad nearly ceased. Wi^n night came on, all the combatants rested. n.i> a (w?u 41 ,AI ?

Bueil's forces from the opposite side of the Savannah river, being conveyed to the battle-ground, Gen Nelson's division wa? ordered to form on the right, and the forces under Gen. Crittenden were ordered to his support. Early in tue morning. General buell having ar rivtd, the grea' struggle was reopened at daylight by Gen Neison's division on the leff, and Major General Wallace's d vision on the right. Gen. Nelson's force opened the most galling lire on the rebels, and advanced rapidly as then fell back.

But tbev were not enough for ottr undaunted bravery and tae dreadful desolation produced by our artillery, which a?ept them away "like chaff Ik fore the wind." Out knowing well that defeat would be the death blow to their hopea, their General* still urged them on In tbe face of destruction, hoping by flanking ua on our right, to turn the tloa of battle.

Nelson was driving them, and with wonderful rapidity too. and at 11 o'clock Gen. Huell's force* had roc^wtled in flanking them and capturing their batteries of artillery. '1 hey, however, once more rallied on the lefi and rerrowted the right, and forced themselves forward in another desperate effort, but reinforcements from Gen. Wood and Gen. Thomas coming ta, regiment after regiment, which were sent to Gen. Buell, who had again commenced to drive the rebels About three o'clock In the afternoon, General Grant rode to the left, where fresh regiments had oeen oraerea, *na nnaing me rebels wavering, sent a portion of bis body guard to bead off eacn of the live regiments, and tben ordered a charge across the field, himself leedlng, tbe cannon ball* failing like a hail around h.m, Our men followed with a ahout that sounded above the roar and din of tbe artillery, and tbe rebels fled in dlxiuy, and never made another stand. Gen Buell followed the retreating rebels, driving them In splendid styls, and at half-past five o'clock the whole rebel army was In full retreat to Corinth, with oor cavalry in hot pursuit. We have taken a Urge amount of artillery and also many prisoners. We lost a number of prisoners yesterday, (Sunday.) among whom is Gen Prentiss. The number has not been ascertained yet, but It Is reported as several hundred. Gen. Prentlaa It also reported wounded. Among the killed on the rebel aide la their

General in chief. Albert Sidney Johnston, by a cannon ball, on the afternoon of Sunday. Of thla there la no doubt, aa the report la corroborated by several of the rebel oflteera whom we hare 1 taken prisoners to-day. It la further reported that Beauregard had hta , arm ahot off. Thia afternoon Generala Bragg, Breckinridge i and Jackaon, were cemmandlag tke rebel force*.
