CLIFFORD, ESQ., COMMISSIONER. \esterday, William P.^parks, of Bath, was brought before the Commissioner charged with aiding a deserter from the U. S. army to es cape. Ue pleaded nolo contendere and fur nished sureties in the sum of l.r>00 for his ap pearance at the June term of the U. S. Dis trict Court to be held at Bangor. S. J. Court—April Teim.

The defense is that plaintiff was not the j owner of the properly at the time it was in- j sured or at the time of the alleged loss, and | that misrepresentations aud concealments | were made at the time of effecting the insur ance. Not finished. Geo. B. Emery. John Rand. From Louisiana.—A private letter from Adjutant Gould ot the 30th Regt.. dated Al exandria, (La.) April 26th, says that in the engagement on the 23d, the 13lb, loth and 20th Me. regiments were not engaged. He refers to Col. Fessenden’s wound, but gives no particulars; says the 30th Regt. have done well in three fights, and the regiment that tights well cannot be coughed down. He says the 30th lost from 00 to 120, two Lieutenants among the rest. Capt. Moses reported killed, in uuhurt. We quote a paragraph: “They say the papers make a great success out of oar expedition. If so they lie, for it has been a complete failure; though we, have the glori ous cousolation that the rebels have not whipped us once, and save in the temporary check at Mansfield have not made a show of success by their arms.” Dramatic- Entertainment.—There will be another dramatic entertainment by the Portland Amateurs, this eveuing, at Deering Hall, the proceeds of which will be given to the Home for aged indigeut telltales—a chari ty that commends itself to every heart. We hope that a crowded house will bring some thing handsome to the treasury of the iusti tution. The play of the “Serious Family,” is to be performed, and the character of Amina dab Sleek, will be sustained by Mr. Chase, the worthy Superintendent of the P. S. and P. Railroad. He will represent this character truly, and not burlesque it, as is too often done iu the performance of the play. It will be worth the price ol a ticket to witness his personation of it. Melancholly Accident. — Lawrence llalcrew, employed in the stable connected with the jail, undertook, on Saturday, to lead out a colt. The animal, in frisking about, drew the halter out of Ilalcrew’s hand, and in attempting to stop the beast, he fell to the ground. The colt leaped over his body and struck at bis heud with one of her hind feet, breaking the skull just over the right eye. Drs. Foster and Goodglc were called and did all in their power for the relief of the sufferer, who was taken home to his family. He lin gered until Sunday morning, when death en sued. The deceased was about 30 years of age. He leaves a wife and four children.

HEAVY LOSSiB IN MEN AND ARMY WAGONS. BATTLE WITH PRICE AT SABINE PASS. St. Louis, May 9. The Democrat of this morning publishes the lollowiug:—The expedition ot Gen. Steele towards Shrevesport has ended with his re turn, under rather exciting circumstances, to Little Hock. A gentleman conversant with the facts has arrived here, and communicates a statement to the following purport:—Gen. Steele left Little Rock with seme 12,000 iul'antiy aud 3000 cavalry, the latter under Gen. Carr. Ar kadelpbia was occupied without difficulty, aud a force moved forward to Camden. A sub sisteuce train of 180 wagons was cut off aud captured by the enemy, together with the es cort of 480 men, w ho suddenly found them selves in the hands of a superior force aud made little resistance. At Camden Steele soon fouud the cavalry, about 8000 strong, in his rear, and 240 wagons dispatched Dorn Camden towards Pine Bluff for stores, with an escort of 1000 men, were captured by the enemy. The steamer Aleuts, with twenty tons of ammunition lor Steele, was sunk forty miles below Little Rock by coming in collision with another steamer. The pilot was put un der arrest on suspicion of treachery, but sub sequently released. Gen. Steele could tlud no store to subsist his troops on, and bad to re duce their allowance to quarter rations. As the movement of Gen. Steeie w as to be co operative with the main of Gen. Banks, which bad failed, there remained no course but to return to Little Rock. Gen. Price undertook to retain Gen. Steele at Camden, while OeD. Murmaduke set oil for Little Rock. Gen. Steele, to act for the safety of the capital of Arkansas with its Union population and mil lion of dollars worth of Federal stores, and lor the rescue of his army, broke through the lines of Gen. Price, and set out to get to Little Rock in time to save it from Martuaduke, who was also making every exertion to reach and •'“ft « r;auir. .11 onuilic 1 II ! became necessary to give Trice battle, which was handsomely done. The rebels were well mounted and in tine condition. The fight was protracted and bloody, lusting for three or four hours, aud resulting iu the complete re pulse of the enemy, and leaving Steele to re sume his exciting race with Marmaduke. Marmaduke approached Little Hock, throw ing shall* into the city on the afternoon of the 1st. Shortly afterwards Carr's cavalry came up, ami these joining the troops at the post, compelled Marmaduke to relinquish Iris un dertaking. lie made little resistance, as the main body of Steele’s army was rapidly ar riving. The Arkansas Legislature was in session, and prohatily not one of its members would have lieeu spared by the exasperated foe. During the entire inarch from Camden our troops were constantly skirmishing with the enemy, who hung upon their rear aud flanks, strenuously endeavoring to iui|iedc their progress. There were no ambulances for our wouuded men. aud they had to he left in tire house* of residents on the road. The captured escort of 1(100 men was composed of the Mttlh Iowa. Til Indiana aud 77th Ohio regiments. Only forty-five succeeded In es caping. Our informant represents fsleele's cavalry as deplorably deficient in horses, our men be ing compelled to use unbroken mules in many instances, or try aud use them to serve In the place of cavalry horses, lien. Trice’s forces are still lingering in the vicinity, stripping the desolated country auew. Rrport of Committer on thr Contlu* t of the War. Washington, May it. Mr. Wade, from Committee on the Conduct of the War in the Senate, ami Mr. Gooch, from same committee in the House, have sub mitted a report upon the condition of the re turned prisoners at Annapolis, from an exam ination made at the request of the Seeietary of War. It is proved beyond all doubt iu the estimation of the committee that tlie rebel authorities have determined to mTiject our soldiers and otiicers who fall into their hands to physical and mental sulferiug impossible to describe, many presenting now the appearance of living skeletons, literally skin and bones, some maimed for life, and some frozen l>y ly ing without tent or covering on the bare ground at Belle Isle. The general practice is shown to be the robbery of prisoners as soon as taken of all money, valuables and good clothing. The food allowed was totally Insuf (icent to preserve the health of a child. It consisted usually of two pieces of bread made of com and cob meal, badly cooked, with about two ounces of meat unfit to eat, and occasionally a few black worm-eaten beans. They were obliged to sell the clothing re ceived from home to buy food to sustain life. Those in the hospitals were little heller fed ; worn and neglected, wounds remained for days undressed. One witness, when asked if he was hungry, replied .—•‘Hungry ! I could eat anything in the world that came before us.” They were submitted to unmerciful and murderous treatment by those iu charge of them. They were shot and killed for violat ing r ules of which they had no knowledge, When they arrived at Annapolis theii cloth ing was bo tilled with vermin that they had to be destroyed, and repeated washings tailed to relieve their heads and bodies of the pests. They are now dying daily, and the physiciaos iu charge entertain no doubt that their eman ciation and death are directly caused by the biural and merciless treatment received while prisoners of war by the rebels. The testimony shows that the treatment re f Jived at Columbia and Dalton was far more uinanethan at Kii hmoiid. The committee cannot resist the conclusion that these inhu man practices are the results of a determina tion on the part of the rebel authorities to re duce our soldiers by privations aud exposure to such a condition that they never will be aide to lender effective service in the field, the result like the massacre at Fort Pillow, of a predetermined policy. They deem it evident that the rebel news paper stalemnnts, claiming for prisoners the same treatment received by their own sol diers, are glaring ami unblu-hing falsehoods, aud say no one for a moment can be deceived by such a statement who will relleet that our soldiers who. when taken prisoners, were •tout and healthy men in the prime and vigor of lile, yet they have died by ' hundreds under the treatment they have received, although required to perforin no duties of ihc camp or match, while the rebel soldiers are able to make long aud rapid marches aud stubborn resistance in the field. They refer with pride and satbfactian to the uncomplaining fortitude and undiininhhed patriotism exhibited by our brave men under all their privations,even in the hour of death. The chairman says:—‘ There Is another tiling I would wish to state; all the men, with out any exception, among the Ihonsauds that have come to this hospital, have never in a single instance expiessed a icgret, notwith standing the privations and sufferings they have endured. But since they entered their country’s service they have been the most loyal, devoted and earnest. Even in the last days of their lives they have said that all they hoped for was just to live and enter the ranks again and meet their foes. II is a most glori ous record in relation to the devotion of our men to their country. I do not tliiuk that their patriotism has ever been equaled in the history of the world. _______________ * TIIIlliF DAYS LATER FROM El ROPE. Arrival of the steamship Hansa. New York, May 5. Steamer Iiausa, from Southampton 28tb ult, arrived here at 8 o'clock this evening. Steamers Hibernian, from Portland, Africa, from Boston, and liecla, from New York, bad arrived out.

The Confederate loan advanced two per cent on the news of a fresh rise in gold and symptoms of a dispositions on the part of some hold members in Congress to bring up th™dea of recognizing the Confederacy. France and England have despatched a na val force to protect their subjects in Tunnis, where disttubauees have occurred. THE CONFERENCE. The Conference and all the accredited Plen ipotentiaries met at the treasury on the 25th ult. It is believed no decision on the armis tice question had been arrived at. England was represented by Earls Bussell and Claren don. The Memorial Diplomatique says Claren don has returned to England, having formal ly engaged to support energetically the armis tice demand which the French representative made at the first sitting of the Conference. France and England are mutually bound to declare war against the power that refuses to agree to a truce. The armistice will be based upon the tile paesiditus principle. Russia will not send a second Plenipoten tiary to the Conference, unless it he called to a general Congress, when GortzchakofT will go to London. DENMARK. All is quiet. The King has issued a proc lamation to the army, saying that the suffer ings and losses of the last few days will not he in vain, but will bear fruits in‘the struggle against injustice and violence; a struggle the aim of which is Denmark’s existence and its independence. The enemy had advanced into Jutland and occ-pied Hersens, strengthening the batteries in Alsen Sound. The King of Prussia had visited Fieusburg. An engagement took place on the 24th ult, off lluggeu Islaod, between a Prussian gun boat and a Danish iron-clad frigate.

Considerable debate of a personal charac ter ensued between Mr. Dawes and Harris, growing out of remarks made by tha former, relative to past political movements. The latter was called to order by the Speaker in the course of his rentalks. Mr. Harris denied that the language in his speech for which the House passed a vote of censure, was iulcuded to aid and comfort the enemy. Mr. Schenek, of Ohio, iu allusion to Mr. Harris, said the only reply he desired to make was the reading of the vote of censure which was read by the clerk—tiis object being that said vote might follow Mr. Harris’s speech on the record.
