We yoalland tbia fact from the speedy whistling of several ballets by us, sad the bursting of ens or two shells lb dangerous proximity. I confess that in the Captain's assurances of no danger arising from the visit, sad that the aforesaid sharp shooters and cannon would not deport themselves very disagreeably, I was rapidly losing faith, and not so anxious as I was to inspect the enemy's Hue from this locality and get the gllmpoe promised me of the heights and steeples of Mehmond. "Let them blaze away?they ean't hit us in all day," was the only comforting response I got from the Captain upon suggesting catting our visit short. It wssevident the enemy had goon glasses as wen as ?ursalvas, sad no doubt tried to frighten us out of our eyrlo. 1 am rree to admit that they succeeded In fright ening me; but as the Osptatn had piloted me there I was st his miercy to pilot me back, and so had to stay as long aa ha did, and, with taking promised observations of tbo enemy, taking the chances of being hit at the same time, wear our coRREsrOSDCT saw?micnMosn in eictsr. Notwithstanding the Utile episode of bullets end shells, not laid down In the programme, the visit was a paying one. The heights and church steeples and rebel flag floating ,oa the rebel oapltol were very distinctly to be seen, and a great many tente on the heights?no doubt those of the hospitals located about the .city. I saw those steeples and heights and emblems of rebellion from the roof of Dr. Gaines' bouse h*o years ago. Three weary months of Imprisonment, passed aim oat under the shadow of thoeo steeples and that flag and those heights, inspired ma with a desire to see thorn agaio. The gloomy days and nights, and the suffering and deprivations and longings aud'me lane holy of those days, walled np from memory's dopths. The tree, of course, does not command a view of the defences of Richmond, and only those of the ene my's batteries are visible. Seeing Richmond from this point is paraphrased ??seeing the promised land;" al though, as can bo gathered from the above, very little of the promised land can be seen. TU1C RKV. SR. WWSLOW, whose death from drowning while on his way to Wart ingioa with his son, Colonel Winslow, of the Fifth New York Zouaves, recently wounded, as has been anuuunoed In the Northern papers. Is worthy or more than a passing tributary notice, from bis long and useful connection with the army and par ticular identification with the Fifth corps and our head quarters. If not a yrotepe of General Warren, ha was at least on ?cleee-ead-intimate relations with him?a rela tionship growing out of a high and just appreciation of the personal traits of bis character and setr sacrificing devotion to duty in whatever sphere employed. While obapiais of the original Fifth New York Zouaves, which position bo filled during Its two years of service, he was forsmosl with the regtmeut In every engagement, and, by his bravery and great kindliness of heart and words and sets, won tka love of every offloer and soldier. A mere popular sad useful chaplain has not beeu in the service. As one of the agents of tba Sanitary Commission, for the past year another and harder sphere of dnty waa his, but marked by the same fidelity to the trusts reposed la bHn, the same enlarged benevolence, tbe tame uelntermltted industry. Since General Warren bas . cemmtnded tbe corps be baa stopped at ear headquarters. | A wind finely cultivated, mannesa dignified and refined, a rare fund of anecdote at command, and an underlying vela of delicate richness, served to make him a most genial as well as agreeable sad Instructive eons panfin. Long la memory will live the recol lection of hit alternating wit and pathos, and words of vrit and counsel uttered at our mess Sable and around ear eamp fire at night, as were canvaeesd the events or each day, the ruling quiet or exciting march, or some storm of terrible tragedy. Ba b*i gone bom us, bat not from our mn< rise. He will be remembered by many In-New York as formerly chaplain at the old Quarantine,! on States Island, which position heboid for asveoRT ?years. Ho waa regularly educated to-the ministry, asi a doctor of divinity, and #as at onn Stnra pastor of the Epteeopal chnreh In Auapolla, ifaryieod. No bait of any ancient Grecian or Roman bore presented a more finely moulded bead than that of Cr. Winslow, sad hie losg flowing gray beard, dark gray ayes of tender but penetrative expression, sad straight and well built frame, although peat sixty years of age, suggested turn aa a type, in these days af effltwlnale degeneracy, rarely seen, of those great old philosophers who ooee walked the atresia of Cat Hugo sod Homo. * TBXMRW ORUAVIRATIOM.

Nassviixs, Tmo., June 9,1804. Tbe W*f announcement contained la this morning'! papers that Andrew Johnson bed boon nominated an the republican tickot with Mr. Lincoln oroaled no surprise and bat little remark in this city. It wan generally con sidered a foregone exclusion that the ticket would em braoe tbp name of Governor Johnson, it being pretty generallyImown that great eflbrte bad been and ware being made by ble friends to aecara bim the nomination. Tbe annonncament or bis eucaees, there ore, was received as a matter of eourse, and no psrtloulor demonstration was made In publio until tbis evening. Samuel Carter, the proprietor of tbe Saint Cloud Hotel, baa always beeu a stauncb Union man. He says that during tbe morning be was revolving la bis brsln tbe names of tbe trae, stauncb loyal men of Tennessee whom be knew. Tbe roll summed up nineteen names, end out of tbose nineteen good and boly men one boa been chosen by the Baltimore Convention to be Its candidate for Vice Provident. Carter calculated that be bad eply missed tbe nomination by eighteen, and that It becnuto hie duty to celebrate the occasion Ro when nigbt approached the hotel was lllurainatod.a brass band was obtained, a crowd gathered around an I Oovernor Johnson Introduced to it. The usual welcome of three cheers and a few chords fr >ru the band ws'comed as ho i-.rose and begun what, under all lha clrcumstauoos, I supposed would lie a ten miuules snoech of thanks Tor the honor sod compliment; but during tbe two hours In which he occupied the stand be gave vent to u letter of acceptance of the nomination which bas several points of interest, and which I endeavor to give yon from meagre notes 1 shall not attem; t to give vou the stereotyped Introduction, apologies and conclusion, but tbe main points of his speech wis mob.!, os i nrcom's nssoursjiTiojr. Tbe demonstrations which bad been made to night, Oov ernor Johnson was pleased lo think, whs not made In his benalf, but was on acknowledgment on the part of tbse present of their devotion to the government, the country and the cause in wblcb every true patriot'wan engaged? the mainteninceof tho principles of liberty k This war is a great struggle for tho existence of free government, and In tho rennminatkHvof.the man who bod for three years gaided tbe bark of ? State, the convention had declared not only to tbe people of tbe United States, but to all ne tions of the earth, that we are determined to carry out and maintain the prlcci lea of free government. THB PIUKCirUS INVOLVBP IN HIS OWN NOMINATION, ! As for bis own bumble uclf, Governor Johnson de clared that tbern was alee a principle declared, and then gave us tbe substance of what you have bad from Uhsaoo Brown low vki tbe convoution retarding lbs right of secession. Johnson declared that it was an Important principle, and one not to be dis regarded. Tbe representatives or all tbe States In tb it convcntloa bad declared In bis nomination lb it they did nut recognise that one State could withdraw or secede from tbe United Rtates In other words, which the Governor's modesty forbade him to declare, he repre sented that principle, and that it b id secured him the nomination. He had bold tout doctrine from the first, and now the nation's representatives bad in oonvemion assembled declared with bim that no State could secede and, In going mto a State which bad rebelled to select a candidate for tbe Vice Presidency, had asserted .bat Tennessee never bed been out of the Union, sad had never a rigbt to secede They bed acted as tho'reure senUtives. not "frStatee, but of the whole government, and recognized no right.of a part to dismember tho whole. US A CI VI78 THB NOMINATION. Ro fares be was ooncerned, be declared he bad not sought tbe honor wbtch. bad just been conferred upon bim. No mm oo tld honest'y nay that Andrew Johnson* had ever electioneered with him to obtain his Influence to secure power and nl.ice. On the contrary he bad felt thai he had bisber duties to perform than those of a more aspirant for oflV-e. And having been tbus con ferred. unsought end nnnskod, he appreciated the honor that much higher; "and." h? addod, raialrg hia voice, "1 shall not decline It. In accepting, gome we d or come woe. success or defeat, I shall staid on I ho principles 1 hers enunciate, let the oonseiuences, for good or evil, oe wb-rt tbey may." ' SODIWgRW ARr TrHTUCT He bad no doubt that there were thousands in the Slate, and ae doubt many In tbe crowd, that listened who had a sovereign contempt lor bim, but whlio scorn ing Ihcir cmtempt ho fell hie superiority to tbopi. He bad always understood tbern?this aristocracy bvod on slave labor.

A largo proportion of one of tbe elements of the rebellion were the aristocrats who were opposed to a government In wblch they were ruled by a man who bid risen from among the bumble class of tbe psonle.

Old River lake Is a body of water of aboat eight miles In longtb, of Mmtclv cular form, and waa not mauy years ago the bad of lb# Mississippi. At tbe extreme northwestern bend of tkn lake a narrow but deep lagoon, callod Fish bayan, emptied its waters, two miles to tbe north of whlcb the town off Luke Village, where Marraaduke had bis beadqnarlers. Is located. Four commnu roads come together near Lake Village, where tbey unite with tbe main road leading to Columbia, on the weal si le of tbe river opposite wherd we now lay. Our troops marched by tbe road from Snnay 8lds around the south end o' the Lake, the Forty seventh Illinois and Thirty olehth Iowa regiments being In tbe advance early in tho morning, hoping to sutprlen tbe enomy by a rapid and circuitous roots; bat It aeeain that tbe enemy whs, as usual, fally posted open our movements, nod bad taken op a strong position In line off battle on tbe north side of Fish bayan.
