The present movement is probably deiirned

States Colored Infantry, 1st Florida Cavalrv,
dismounted, and Coiiipauy M, 14th New York
Cavalry, together with the 1st Florida Battery,
moved out from Pensacola to co-otierate with a
raiding force from Sherman, which was opera
ting against the Mobile and Great Northern lUil
road. Ou the next day, be encountered a Rebel
force composed ot Companies G, K, and I, of the
3d Alabama Regular Cavalry, numbering three

GOOD NEWS FROM ARKANSAS.
PrfrM of Rebel Hear Fort Smith.
St. Lous, August 6. A despatch from Fort
Smith, Arkansas, on the 1st Inst., says the Rebels
under Cooper, Gurvey, and Standwith, five hun
dred strong, with twelve gun, moved np yoster
dny with the Intention of attacking Fort Smith.
General Thayer went out nd met the enemy a
short distance from the fo.tiflcatiom and com
pletely routed them. Our cavalry are (till pur
suing them. Our loss was very small, that of the
Rebels is unknown.
General FUk telegraphs to General Roxecruns
from St. Joseph's that recruiting is very lively in
his district. The militia called out to hunt gue
rillas acted nobly, and the report of their being
Insubordinate and lawless was false.
TbeGeuerol say this demonstration of loyalty
and power, has been of incalculable value to the
district in converting th Roliel there, and tho
recruiting oflicet in Northern Missouri will here
after be governed by loyal men.

Tub Si'ecial Elbction RETfRN. This
morning the Return Judges reos-onibl-jd for the
purpose of receiving the vote of the First Pre
cinct of the Twenty-sccoJd Ward, which was not
made at the meeting yesterday. The stupid Re
turn Judge from this Ward was unaware that he
bad any returns to make, except placing the
ballots In a sealed box, and depositing them at
Sixth and Chesniit streets. Ho bad even failed
to make a return to the Prothonotury'e Ottice,
and by bis course prevented the complete vote
from being counted until this morning, when it
should have been done yesterday. Tue penalty
for this otlenso is fifty dollars. Judite Ludlow
gave an order to open the sealed box tor ttie pur
pose oi oniuining ine vote, in order that tho re
turns migbt be completed.

Dahino Kouhkuy and Arrest. This morn-
ing, abont one o'clock, the store of Mr. John
Johnson, at the 8. W. corner of Eighth and Sanson-,
streets, was entered by robbers, who gained
admission over the transom. OtUoer Mclntyre,
who was passing that way, saw three men coming
ont, heavily hideued with goods. He gave au
alarm and started in pursuit of the rascals. All
except one succeeded in making their escape.
lie was overtaken oy me omceranu tmrty-tour
shawls, stolen from the store, found m his posses
sion. Altogether they had taken one hundred
and twelvu shawl, three or four mantillas, aud a
uuuiitlly ol unmade material. Ihe party arrested
gave the name of John Swain, and stated that he
lesided in a small court In the neighborhood of
Tenth and Sunsom street. The police visited bis
bouse and there secured seventy-eight more of
the shawls, and also took into custody Bamev
Mcllbcnny, a notorious thief, und a woman who
stated that she was Swain's wife. The whole
party will have a hearing at the Central Oilico
Cowardly Assault. A newly - imported
Irishman, numed Johu lionahue, residing in the
neighborhood of Twenty-second and Wood
streets, was arrested thi morning by Orti er
Lemon, upon the charge of assaulting a colored
boy, aged eight years. It seems that tho little
ti now was employed at too touocco factory,
Twenty -second and Wood streets, and was on hi
way to work when the assault was made, for no
other reason than being black. Donahue amused
himself by throwing stone alter the boy. who
was too small to reiallate. The prisoner was held
in 400 ball by Alderman Pancoost. If Donahue
ants lo snow bis riitlitlng qualities in a more
becoming manner, he should locate himself with
the Army of the Potomac.
Assault ast Battkry. John Welsh ws
arrested yesterday, upon tho charge of commit
ting a violent assault and battery some week
since u-ionone of the Seventeenth Word oftlcsirs.
The officer had made an arrest, when Welsh and
a number of others rescued the prisoner and
beat the olllcer sobadlvtbat ho was confined to
bis house for a woek. he accused wis held by
Alderman bhoemaker in the sum of 2010 ball
Insakk Mam in Custody. An Insane man,
giving the namo of Albert O. Opie, was taken
into custody yesterday afternoon, at the Ameri
can Telegraph Oflic. Religion had apparently
affected hi mind, at he bud written ont a des
patch which he demanded of the clerk should be
instantly forwarded to God Almighty. Ue was
locked up at the Central Station, l'rom papers
found on his person, it is thought that ho belougt
to Somerset, N. J. He also had several deeds for
Out Dom'STic Market. Thi morning
there was very little change in prices to report in
our domestic market. Meats of all kinds remain
the same, with no prospect of a decline. The
prices asked this morning were a follows:
Apples, per half peck, 12-K" itOc. ; cantvlopes, 5
25c.; butter. 4Y(a00c.j corn, per dou, 25c. (
onions, per half peck, 60c. t peaches, per half
peck, 4X 7Sc j pears, per half peck, 37c. j toma-
toes, per bait peck, -oh-giuc.
Thb Pkach Crov. Peaches are making their
appearance in our market in abundance, and as
tbe crop 1 represented to be large, prices must
soon come down. Very (ratal peaches sell from
a dollar to a dollar and a half the bushel. They
are brought mostly from the New Jersey
Handsome Meteor. About 11 o'clock last
night, a very large and beaatifnl meteor shot
across the eastern part of the sky. Its course
was southeastward!-, and It left a train behind
which was a half minute fading out, looking like
a broad band across the heaven.
Tub Chambkusihru BurrBRER. This after
noon, at 4 o'clock, the ladies of the city will meet
at the room of the Board of Trade, to adopt
nieaiiurt s for the reiicf ol the suflerers at Cham
Bnwo Fit i an It. The western thorfl f tht)
Schuylkill, from Market Street Bridge to Fair
mount dam, was, a few year tlnee, a boggy
marsh. Tbe frogs were the tola Inhabitant of
that rx'ensfve fen, and their domain was never
moll-sled excepting In seasons of continuous rain,
when tbe OC h aid mullets were washed
from the rescrrulis alaive the dam and carried
Into the hole In the marh. Adventurous
urruli woniii then search tne hog for the bright
-iio minnows, mid many a priva e futintaiu or
lake In the rlty i.wes ts 'older, pecklcd Innate
to these Industrious Utile hshenuen.
Aiaiul three years ago, dirt licgan to lie de
pnaited cm the southern terminus of this marsh.
The wurk of tilling up has progressed, until now
hundred acres of splendid ground is used for
wharvea along ihe West Philadelphia side of the
Hchujlkill.ls tween Pi rmnnentand Wire bridges.
These wharves are spanned by an intricate net
work of rails, and the principal storage and trans
m nation dep. for petroleum ore on what fair
year s-o was a damp, noisome nutrsh. Tho
on I from the Broad Top region that passes over
the Pennsylvania Rullruadls tore I there in large
inai.ti.lcs. In a few years, th wharves will rx
t nd along the entire river front, and will be, If
ihi y sre not now, the largest continuous range of
wharves In the City.
Nkw Catholic Colleob. Tbe tract of laud
Id Weil Philadelphia known a the Remington
Farm has been purchased by Bishop Wood, and
a building similar in outline and plan to the new
Insane Asylum in the Twenty-fourth Ward will
be ercrted thereon. The Interior decorations will,
however, b of finer design and finish. When
completed, the edifice will be devoted to olio
plate and educational purpose. ItwIN be a grand
school fur the latbolio youth nf Pennsylvania.
All the theological and classical branches will he
taught, and the physical culture of pupils will
rt ceive equal attention. Tbe entire mstitu'e will
be under the control and management nf Bishop
Wood, and with the careful attention of faithful
assistants Ihe college can be made one of thu llrst
in the country. Tbe grounds are exienaive. The
location H excellent and lieu It by, and tho build
ing will be airy and spacious. The children of
the Cnthrdral tchool will visit the grounds
during Ihe next few day. To-day the buy will
he taken to the farm, and an soon as proper
arrangements can he niado tbe clrls will also
visit the locality. These schools are undor the
direction of Father Riley, who will attend their
Tub Triennial Assessmknt The triennial
assessment, now being taken, wlU be completed
by tbe middle of Ibis month, and in October the
City Commlesloner will meet a a Hoard of Re
vision. Great care should be taken by this
Board to ascertain whether the assessors havo
made a proper valuation npon real estate, so that
when the lax rate is made for W!i a suitlclent
amount may be rcalUcd to pay tbe current ex
penses of the city and obviate the necessity of
creating loans to pay ofl deficiencies, it kt sup
pood, when a triennial assessment take place,
that til assessors examine into the Value of each
and every property m Lheir respective districts;
hut it is too often the satse that the old hook of
the previous years are copied. By this course
maoy properties are passed over, and hence a
higher rate of tax is required to meet expenses.
OnionsI Gnions! A kind cry for onions is
made In behalf of tbe Army of the Potomac by
those persons who understand tho wants of the
soldier. Why cannot an onion fund be raised
in thi city ? As oar brave boy have to subsist
mainly upon salted provisions, the craving for
tbis esculent is the result of natural causes. The
onion, although to some an unsavory vegetable,
is one of the most useful and nutritious eorrec-
lives that is known among onr dietary ai tides.
It is antiscoibutic, and a preventative of dysen.
ICfJ. At uoiiipub. diuiio.ii rivi- aiiviim w
those who eat it. There is no ditliculty now in
supplvlng the Army of the Potomac with plenty
of onions. Communication hy water to City Poiut
Is easy ; all that is necessary Is suttlcient thoiiKht-
fulness upon tbis suhject. A pipe and tobacco
fund is now being raised in New York. Tboy
have already subscribed their onion fund. It 1
very singular indeed that tho people of thi city
won't do something of the kind.
War Exprkoiturlh. The expenditures of the
city since the commencement of tbe wnr for
bounties to volunteers, city defense, and tbe
support of toldier' families, ad 1 np to a con
Idtrable sum. In the past th-ce year and a
half the followina sums have been Paul ont of the
City Treasury : For bounties, $ l,347,SHI7l ;
rel ef of families. -2,0o.?,2 .0-riH : defense. :il.i..
9.19-69. Total.- ii.6oH TM 08. Thi I merely
what the city has contrihuted in her corporato
rat acitv. The bniuherand amount of the private
cm rings of citizens would more than double the
Rbcruitino. This morning warrants were
druwn for tbe payment of bounty to fifty three
years' volunteer. The whole amount paid out
during- tbe week was "2il,.'sJ0, which shows
eighty-two three years' enlistment.
The Covino Draft. Such of onr business
men and other citizens, who are in want of sub
stitutes or representative, should secure the
same at once, as prices seem to be on the upward
tendency, ana can wnere lin y will not b im
posed upon. Such we think is
