HIS COOLNESS WHEN WOUNDED, Ac., Ac., Ac. Oar Special Aimy Corvcjtpomlence* Wucciikstkr, March 2A, 1! 02 The ball of the campaign ou the Potomac was at length brilliantly opened at Winchester on Sunday last, end tho rebels have sutlered a Uroadful reverse in the llrst encounter of the season in this depart ment. The object of tho reconnaissance made by General Shields to Strasburg may now bo stated. It was to throw the enemy into the trap which has so fatally sprung upon tho robcllion. Discovering the number and position of the rebels, General Shields rotired hastily, posted his men about two uiMos north of Winchester, in a few tents, as though the force was vi able toat'cmpl pursuing Jackson's forces, and there, alter the with, drawal of General Williams' division, awaited the effect of bis movement upon the enemy. The result showed that the scheme entirely succeeded. As soon as the rebel General Jackson heard tlffct the division of General Williams had moved towards Conlrcville, ho immediately took up his march to Winchester. In the me.m time he had recoivcd reinforcements, and Generals I/>Dgatrcct anil .Smith, of the rebel army, had their commands united to that of the boasted Stono Wall Jackson. So prompt and unexpected was the attack of the onetny, thai it took our generals entirely by surprise, but everything was ready for the emergency. On Saturday afternoon, at about a quarter past two o'clock, our ndvancrd pickets on tha Strasburg road discovered the rebel cavalry under the madcap Aaliby about half a mile beyond them, reconnoitr ing the woods on both sides of tho turnpike, and steadily advancing. Our pickets consisted of a few men of tha Fourteenth Indiana i.ifanlry at that point, and they fell back half a mile to the hamlet of Kervstown,four mile.* from Winchester. The rebels, observing our pickets fall back, were confirmed in the belief that our forces here did not VM< vvu ui? utuuiMiiu III"". I"".T III"" |HVV VQJ9C. Coming up wiili our tuvu, Asbby cried at the top of his voico, "Thore tliey ere, boys; low give them bell." Steadily tlid the troopers advance as our men wheeled to aim and tire. 'J bat Ore seat many of (hem reeling from their saddles, and threw the rest into such confusion that bofuro they could again be rallied for u charge our gallant little baud ot infantry was beyond tno reach of their power, without baying lost n nu n killed or wounded. Meanwhile skit mi-thing progrer. ed on other points along our ad\cured line, aud our picket" wore everywhere rallying on our reserves. General shields hearing of the advance of tlie rebel cavalry, supposed it to be a mnnu-uvie of Asbby alouo for the purpose of watching our movements. As tboy were approaching so boldly and so closely, however, be ordered four advanced oomi antes of inluntry, engaged in proteclirg the supply t train, to rally to the support of the inure advanced pickets, and try to bold the rebels in check till be could move dow n the division. Theso four companies wore made up of one irom tho Maty land First, one'from the Twenty eigtb Pennsylvania, one from tbo Forty-sixth Pennsylvania, and ouo from tho TweDty eighth New York. Their regiments hed already marched under General Williams. A battery of artillery was also ordored fortsard. and General Shields, after ordering out tbe dlvisien, redo to the front, nccoir.panied by hie .stall'. While eugagad directing lite tlry of tbe artillery and tbe def'uco generally, a shed uom tho rebel battery ?f four guns, which now lcgati to play on us, burst near him, and a splinter from it Struck hint in the left arm, just above Ibe elbow, fracturing the bot.o and creat ing a (ainful wound, llis Adjutant Cenoral, Major Armstrong, who was standing near, remarked, "General, you arc wour.dcd iu the arm." "Yos," ropllcd tba gallant Shields, "but say nothing aliottt it." He llu-Ugafo arresh order (o theartillery, anil epntinn*d on the held till be tut utied himself lliat all was right. A man belonging to t'aplaiu Uoblnaou'3 company of Ohio artillery and ahorse wore killed on ibis day by the eueiriy's gun?; but tb."<o were all the oast saltier that occurred on our sido till the skirmish of the lirst day was ended. Tho wound of Oca. Vbields caused a (rung throughout the eullro division, and it, in rema'kablo lhat ho should have bren the first mall truck on our fide, uur divisim began to arrive in force on the held towards dark, and the rebelsperceiving thin did not pile It their advance, but halted about three miles front Winchester for the night, lighted thoir cnin|> Ihes and bivouacked, while our army lay he twron ihetn and tho town. It was generally believed that a general cugugi meul would take place on the neat cay (Sunday),and the expectants wen*not di apiojnted. riiut night was one 01 terrible suspense on both rides No one kuew what the rebels delayed tin ir advance for, whi'o it was our policy to postpone a battle, in view of tha preponderating force of the enemy, in order to at low reiulorccmcnte to arrive irom the division of tJer.eral Williams, the rear guard of which hud already advanced ten miles towards the Shenandoah. Morning explained the rcu ou of thu enemy' halt. About ten o'clock reinforcements of live .'.rgimonta of lafautry and two batteries of artillery wore announco I arrived from Strasburg'. under (Jen.

Ivncing those of llm enemy, though the firing was well maintained for s lung tine on both roles. Our centre consisted of tho Fourteenth Indiana, the Fighth and Blatj-Kevsnth Ohio and the Flghty.fourlh rcnneylvapla, ai'd let fl/'i'J'+f butleric? holing W YO NEW YORK, THURSD log to lbs First Ohio artillery, and tbo cavalry consisting of the First Michigan and First Ohio, wers drawn up in tbo roar. Tho whole of our cavalry amounted to no more than &00 men, and this arm p'uyed a very unimportant part in tho action on either side. Our right wing was made up of the Fifth and Eighth Ohio regiments and a battery of the First Virginia regiment. The reservos consisted of tho Twelfth Indiana, tho Thirty-ninth Illinois and a squadron of the Michigan cavalry. General Shielus was unable to appear on the held in person, and the command In the field devolved upon Acting Brigadier Kimble, who led our centre; and our right was commanded by Acting Brigadier General Tyler, while Colonel Sulil van directed the operations on our left. The battle raged along the whole line with great fury from eleven At M. till half past two P. M., when General Shields, who received accounts of the progress o( the tight on his couch, ordered the right, where the content ruged the holiest, to charge upon the enemy, lbatwasuu awful charge. The left of the enemy prepared desperately to repel our gallant troops, but tlielr rush was as irresistible as tbo tide in the Bay of Fundy. Previous to this time our lino of battle h'.d been sonic what changed. The Eighty fourth Pennsylvania remfcrced our right, and also a bat. tery of artillery. Our whole force now engaged was about six thousand hieu, while that of the enemy was at the lowest eMiinat i eight thousand. The rebels had also changed their line, and extending both their wiugs, pi<sent<d a concave front to our army. They had uls~> reinforced their left wing, and tlio charge to be made by our right was ail important in its consequences. On it, at three o'clock, depended tho fate of the entire battle. The gallant Tyler led the charge, sword in hand, at I ho head of the line. The rebels tired from the woods with artillery and small arms, while our men advanced against their murderous showers of lead and iron, returning few shots nnd reserving their tire. ITik in tliia timet tho Rriuuin IiriI no!. hi?pn iniu h ??o?rr?r to each other tlian tln-ue hundred yards, unless in some few instances. The wood was soon cleated at the point of the bayonet, our men discharging their pieces at twenty and even Ate yards distance from the rebels, and then d^hing at thorn with the bayonet. The rebels fought well, however. They contested the ground foot by foot, and marked every j a.d of it with blood. lleliring behind tlieir stone wall, on the ridgo, our men jumped over alter them, and drove^tbem along in the greatest confusion and with fearful slaughter upon their centre, l'he panic communicated. Kimble ordered a charge along the whole lino, and for a Bhort time the lighting was most desperate. The roar of the cannon vv?s no lunger heard, nnless in rccasioual bursts of filfnlfexplosious, and the rattle of musketry was more boisterous than over, and sourc'od like the noise made by a very close thunder clap, except that it man sharper continuous. The rout of the rebels had fairly commenced, however, and two of their guns and four caissous were now ours, and though many of them turned and hied again and again at our pursuing host, many more threw uwsy muskets and bayonets without hesitation. Darkness and the extreme fatigue of our troops, howevor, saved tho enemy for the time, and wo retired about two miles and bi. vouncked till yesterday morning. At daybreak General Shields ordered tho rebel positiou to bo attacked, and the enemy, after replying by a few shots from his artillery. continued bis retreat. Mcan'irae tlcncral Banks, who had boon at Harper's Ferry, arrived, and taking command of tho troops in pefeon, is now continuing the pursuit with about ten thousand men, and at tbe latest accounts had pressed tho rebels beyond Middlcborg, cutting off many stragglers and pressing tho enemy very sorely. The object is to capture hie whole force if possible. It was not till yesterday morning that any of the force of (ten. Williams arrived on the field, and then they were too Into to participate in the action. They joined in the clu-.e. The loss of the enemy In killed end wounded will foot up about 900 n-.on, nf which 225 were killed. The number of prisoners taken from them is 2d?. 'ihsso figures arc independent of what they have k.Hi and w.ll lo. a in the pursuit. The regiment which lost most on the side of the rebels was the Fifth Virginia. Our loss in killed so far us ascertained is less than 100 and about SCO of our men are wounded. 'Ihough the enemy had a much larger force, four pieces uf cannon more than our army, the selection of fighting found and every other advantage, yet all the trophies of the occasion belong to the Union army. There were many deeds of heroism performed on the battlefield. While thu Fifth Ohio was charging against the enemy tho color bearer was live timus r.hotd own; yet another ins taully replaced him at the risk of his life. The last color boarer of the fivo was a private named T. H. Isdell. Tho flag staff was broken, yet the glorious banner never cetised to float in triumph over this gallant regiment. Thu rebels had su fri -h battalion of one hundred and fifty men, of whom forty were killod on the field and near'y all tho rest wounded. The 1< <s en our side was heaviest in the Mighty-fourth lYiiisylvauia lit. Of tbc five companies of three hundre 1 men, in ail engaged, they lost Col. Murray,as da-hing and l rave an officer as ever drew a sword; ono captain, cno lieutenant, twenty ihrce pi ivatcs and nou~ cauinii stoned oltcsrs killed, and sixty three wounded. The lorS iu tho eighth and Fil th llhio regiments is about govrnty five and Sixty, respti lively, killed and wounded. l i -utvcaiif Colonel the Third Virginia, is among the wounded on ocr side, Tho.ic arc the ply field L-.II...I In I tin fnir.n f.,rr..s Ttio rofcels carried r.o knapsacks with ihrm into action, and all Hi" rations In their haversacks -.van a small cake oi br<-ad toenih man. They counted to a certainty on capturing Wluchcttor. Ilin only wagons thoy brought with them wers provision wagons. This explains how it war, that they did not K,:;c much besides urins in their retreat. The battle Aeld after the straggle was a sight tobe .seen and renminbi red. Ihe night was da:k and cold. After the battle tlie andiuia'.ics were bit. ily engaged re noving the wounded, 'ihe enemy carried oil' mi?l of their wounded and some of their dead. The wounded were intermingled with the dead, and their sufferings before they were removed to the hospital* were very poignant. Yesterday was spent in burying the dead. The ghastly aspect of the Ueld yesterday after tbe wounded were removed, and before J he dead wore interred, was appalling. Some with their facts off, scan e with their heads off. ome torn into fragments and frightfully mangled by the round shot and rhcil, and others simply but quito as ulKctuully killed by bullet wounds. It is singular that most of the eneiuv killed by bullet wounds were shot through the hoad or the heart, showing the remarkable accuracy with which our Western troops use the rifle. The enemy's wounds weio not near so fatal to us as ours ware to them, and thoir weapons worn, as a general rule, decidedly Inferior to thoso used in our army. About the stonewall the enemy were strewn a1 most on top of each other in heaps of dead. At thin point also many of our brave follows.aNo bit the dust. t'apl. Jones, who commanded the Irish battalion in the lobel army, is a prisoner in our bands, wilh both bis eyes shot out by one bullet. The calm which has succeeded tbe mighty temped of the pas life w days here is something exceedingly solemn. K vary thing around Winchester now Is quieter and gloomier than aver.

THE WAY SHE RAN THE BLOCKADE. FORT MACON NOT DESTROYED, Ac?f Ac*) Ac* Korthb-m Monrob, March 25. 1842. The United State* steamer Cambridge arrived bere this forenoon from the blockade off Beaufort, N. 0., bating left ou Sunday etening last. I The rebel Hteanier Nashvillo escaped from tbe harbor of Veaufort on Tuesday night, tbe 18th instant, having run the blockade. The only United States vessels at the place were tha teuruor Cambridge and the bark Gemsbnk, a sailing vessel. i The blockading vessels had news of tbe capture o! Newborn, and were on the lookout for tbo Nashville; but they were not numerous enough to prevent her escape. Tbo Gemebok first saw the Nashville, and Immediately tolegiaphed to the Cambridge that she was coming out. The Cambridge followed the Nashville, and* ft red a numb, r of shots at her with tbe hope of getting her into a fight; but the superior speed of tho Nashville eoon pat her at a safe distance. Two of the shots from the Cambridge were supposed to have si ruck the Nashville. Tho baik Glenn, which has been blockaded in tbe harbor of Beaufort for some time, was set sn fire by tho rebel.) on Sunday, and was still burning when thef^mbridgo left in the o\ ening. The Glenn wag supposed to lie fitting out as a privateer. mo miming 01 tins vessel was, doubtless, preparatory io an evacuation of the place. Fort Huron bad uot been blown up by the rebels at the ast accounts. The bark Gemsbok and the steamer State of Georgia wore loft at the atatlon by the Cambridge. Tlw Escape of the Haihvlllc. . TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. UN II STATK8 BlHK GK.MSHOK, 1 Bi^hkaiiinu orr Br Amour, N. C., March 18.1802. f We think it but right to let the public know the situation of this blockade, aud epeclally so since the rebel steamer Nashville lias run the blockade of this harbor la and out n^ain. When the Nashville ran in on the morn ing of the 28th of February last, there was only the State of Georgia on this blockado to protect throe entrances? which it is Impossible for one steamer to do. Three days after the Nashville had ruu in, this vessel arrived bore from Hampton Bonds, and we found to our mortitlcatieu 'such to be the case. Tho Stat ' of Georgia botag short of uoal could romaia here but a few days. She dcspatchsd at once the facts of tbe case to the nearest blockading station?Wilmington. The Mount Vernon then left there* and proceeded to Hampton Roads with tbe intelligence. The Cambridge was ordered down here in consequence, and reached here on the morning of the 11th of March, making three veaaela on this blockade. The State of Georgia was compelled to leave for reaeoM already stated. She left on the 16th. The Nashville had steamed down from her former positloa In the harbor, and on the day previous to running out was lying closa under the guns of Fort Macon. We kept a sharp lookout for her fore und aft. and with good glasses , to watch her niovemonts. Bet wocn the hours of seveu and sight P.M., on tha 17th of March, a dark obiect was noticed comma out of the channel. She bad chosen the darkest part of the night to eludo us, and It was nnly by the utmost vigilant# that enabled us to have seen her as quick as wo did. ( aptainCavendy.of this vessel, at ones got her ready for action, seat up a signal to tbo Cambridge, lying soma distance south of us, and hoisting the foretopeail and Jib, swung the ship, by a spring en the cable, broadside to the channel where she must come out. We lay about ouu mile from the entrance of the channels. There being no wind ut the time, It was useless to think of retting under way to ' base one of the fattest steamers afloat; so wo endeavored with all our will to do the utmost with the guna. Apparently, when first seen, shews* feeling bar way along slowly, till roused by the report of the bow gust aud the ascent of a rocket, telling him of his disco t try. Then ut full speed she flew low ard the oiling amid our shell*, which wore delivered at him as fast as wa could throw them in theguns. We fired twenty guns in twenty miuutes. Whether we hit bim or not we don't know, but from indications which be shewed at ono time, by tho lights flying around the ship, we think he must hare been dumagod considerably. Th ( .inibridge fired three or four guns et her. Wo aoetinued tiring a.; long as she was within range. When the mo >n artse and dis|>ellcd the darkness that had coversd th* scene, the rebel steamer had escaped, and are new ie a long way on hur errand of destruction. It is our belief that had our commander been in charge of aafcMMr, instead of a sailing vessel, that, with hks unwavering determination to nvenga the Insult* of an ouliueed (lac. and agisted hv his < .Ulcers and mem I he course of I he Nashville would have been run.
