Newbmhn, December 1( Au expedition under
the command of Colonel Frcnkie, left I'lyiriou'h
on tho Oth Inst., under orders from brigadier
Gcneral Palmer, commanding the district of
SKIHMISII AT OARDNBR's II R I DOR.
The first point reached was Gardner's bridgo,
on the Roanoke river, beyond Jameston. Here
mas encountered a force of Kebel cavalry prob
ably acting as videttes the main force (infantry)
being strongly intrenched on the height beyond,
the position being approached by a bridge
lly the rapid movements df Captain Donegan,
who led the advance, the Rebels were frustrated
In tbiir deign of destroying this bridge ; and the
Uth New Jersey, which formed in column by
platoons, rushed onward energetically across the
bridge, up the heights, and succeelid shortly in
driving the enemy from his position, w,th but
s Ik bl loss to cither par'y. Captain Graham,
with Ids cavalry, charged in his nio.it gallant
style, and following closely on the heels of tin;
tiling Rebels, succeeded in taking several
, TUB KNBUY l'l'IlSIED TO POXTKH'S MILLS.
The ma n column continued its onward march,
but tlid not succeed in eoinii gup with the Rabuls
until reaching Foster's Mills, where, they were
discovered strongly intrenched, and with one
icco of artillery. Similar to their lirst position,
this was approachable alone over a bridge, which
' this time the enemy had succeeded in destroying;
but a plank served the purpoo, although the
transit was of a more hazardous character. Tne
command, however, crossed in safety by this
means, and in line of baillo coufruutcd the Roods
on the other tide.
The enemy now opened with his artillery, to
which our force nspondeil by a hri.k tiro of
muskctrv, which bad the clleci of dislodging the

On advancing to Spring Green church, on the
road to Haiuillon, mid a 'Out tinea uiilus distant,
the Rebels were again cnou'Hcrod, their pjsiliou
likewise strong, and tiieir force uiuriuliy in
creased. Deeming it iuexpedimt to attack them
in front, a Hank movement was ma lo under the
direction of Colonel Stua.t, with his o.vn regi
ment, the Uth New Jcr-ny, and the 27ih Mas.a
ibnscU. During the night this movement was cflci.'teil
by the command crossing 111 J river by ukmus -of
tome drifting wood, and early the next morning,
much to the surprise of tuo a-t m'sh 'd Rnnels,
Colonel S rv Mir attacked them in their rear.
Finding themselves assailed und hard pressed in
front and roar, the enemy eisuyel to escape by
suddenly piercing the weakest p lint in our lines,
which alter to.no lighting t.ny succeeded in a

1'auin, December 11 The last sari duties to the
remains of tho late American Minister to f ranco
was performed this iiftcrnosn in the American
Chapel of the Rue de Hurry. The reaJing of the
opening services was shared by tho Rev. Dr.
Sunderland, pastor of the church, the Rev. Dr.
Cleveland, of New Haven, Conn., ami tho Il tv.
Mr. I.ninsoii, of the American Episcup U Church
in tlie Rue lUyurd.
The chapel was crowded to overflowing ; many
went uwuv tor want of room, and u largo crowd
rema ned standing in the street. The Government

s.nttd on tills occasion by one of bis Cham ber
1 ins, who attended in a suite carriage; the Dip
It mullc Corps was fully represented; there were
mnny leading secessionist present firmer friends
ot the dec. a-id in public life at Washington; and
iu every direction the eye encountered notabili
ties of tho political and fasliioiMblo world. Such
a tr.buU to the memory of the deceased was a
great .'ource of satisfaction to his friends, and t
ullthosvwho knew tiy association the eminent
qualities of his head und bcirt.
lheFnnch press, and especially the ministe
rial priss, have exhausted their eloquen t; in
ttrmsof praise of tho deceased minister. We
have never seen an eoual umount of eulogy given
to uny deceased foreign minister at Paris. M.
i iitilin l.minvrac says of him this morning in the
( 'unstitutitmnrl, in an nrtlc'o which assumes thu
foi ih of the usual seinl-ollleiul uttorance of th it
"Mr. Dayton, taken away prematurely from
the esteem of ull those who knew him, carries
with him universal regrets. As we havo already
snitl, tins hnnorsble diplomat was ono of the
ii. heritors of the snge und noble traditions
I e.tn tithed to their coun ry and to history by
the founders and the carlv statesmen ot the
American Republic. Ho wus of tho school of
tl.o Wushmgtons and Franklins. Tbo agent
ot liia (iovtrnmei.t iu Fran c during' a period
ot great trial to tlie country, and charged with tbo
most tio.it ute resp. nsibilities, Mr. Bay ton has
known how, by the cour.esy of bis manners, tho
prudence of his language, ami his m (deration, to
avoid tlie complications and einhurrassrno us
which might have otlieiw so arisen. The Uanei
States lose in Mr. Dav t in an eminent cttUuu,
while we, on our part, are left to ucc impany,
with res cot to the grave, thu wise states. nan and
the honest man."
In a previous number the Vo'ixtittUionnel said of
the deceased Minister : f
"Mr. 1 ray ton was one of the most distinguished
and eiiligbiemd moil of the l uiud States. From
his courteous manner and his always well chosen
und mea-ured language, every ono could recog
nise in him a diplomatist who had followed the
gr od tiad. lions bequeathed by tho first generation
of statesmen ol tho American Ri iubbe-"
The (Jojiion So'uiiKile, after giving a sketch of
tl e ileccufcd Minister's ale aud piiulic services,
'1 bo honorable gentleman fultllled his dipt -niiitic
functions with a re tnudo and tact which
procured him tho esteem of even his political
adversaries; and assuredly ho hud to take
mi active part in a whole series of im
portant and delicato questions. It will SiillLto
to mention thu affair of the Tre nt the re
pealed visits of tho Confederate war vessolst)
pons of France the dillcrcnt phases of the .Mexi
can expedition the offers of F.uropcAQ media
tion n h i ted by tho United States and the Imild-
ii g of wur vessels for tlie South at Nantes an I
II rdcuux. In all th'se dillicult circumstances
lie bus always bad a safe rule of conduct aa in
fallible guldo political probity."
Tuo I'utne, a papi r unscrupulously hostile to
the Ciiion, contains the following nonce :
'Our political diUeiences," it observe', "tit
not prevent us from joining with the Unionists
in their regret for tho death of the able di
plomutist, as well as honiist man and perfect
gentleman, whom their cause has just list.
In the dillicult clrcuiiistancL'S In which his
country was placed, Mr. Dayton never departed
from the dignity becoming a diplomatist. Being
obliged to make himself the echo of tho haughty
und ' soiuetiuies excessive exigencies of Mr.
Seward, Mr. Dayton found means to mitigate
their harshness, aud thus to neutralize the Just
influence which the Confederate representatives
hud acquired in Europe. Mr. Dayton was per
sonally known to the Emperor Napoleon 111,
whom bo frequently met during his residence in
the State of New Jersey."
The Journal de jWMcs contains a lengthy and
highly comdllnieutary notice from the able aud
sympathetic peu of Professor Ladoulaye. The
l'reue, the France, the Steele, all speak in terms
corresponding to those quoted above. The Franco,
the organ of Mr. Slidell, waj the only paper
which contained any notice of the death the day
after it occurred, and this note, which was a Tory
kind and complimentary one, is suitl to have ceun
furnished by Mr. Slidell Wmself.
It is known that Mr. Slidell cherished the
highest respect for Mr. Dayton, and never hesi
tated to manifest it. So good an understanding
had grown up between the deceased and the
French Government in these later times, that
there is reason to believe the Government deeply
regrets this loss. We are sure that our own Gov
ernment would hare been the gamer by hut longer
stay on earth.
Ily this death Mr. Pennington, of New Jersey,
the First Secretary of Legation, falls into the
title of Charge des Affaires de la Legation, until
he is raised to the title of Charge d' Affaires, or
uutil another minister is appolutesf. N. Y. Ttmeo.

Nearly the whole of tho attacking force was
die aid in blue clothing, which caused somo
ludicrous scenes, as it was impossibe, at times,
to distinguish lietween friends and enemies. This
ft ct caused the enemy, during the height of the
excitement, to shoot down some ol their own men
by mistake, and ut the Bono time It enabled
otheisto escape who otherwi-o could not have
done so. The charging party had received orders
to ore the s.ibio only, aud bad It been strictly
obej ed, they might have met with some degree
of tneeess ; fortunately, however, sovural of tho
most excited used their revolvers when near the
pickets, so that the camp was nlai uied in season.
At least fifteen of the enemy were killed, and
a laige number are known to have been wounded.

The men suffered terribly from cold, abd sumo of

W hen the 1st Vermont was in position, ready

Cupiain Everts, ol ihe Hih Virginia Rebel Cavalry,

The adjutant ol the Sth New York undertook to
