The Repulsion of the .Rebels.—Thanks
BALTESI0111:, Sept. 30.—The follow
ing has just, been issued by Governor
DEP'T, ANNAPOLIS, Sept. 29, 1862.
The cyindsion of the rebel army
from the soil of Maryland, should not
be v suffe,red to pass without the proper
acknowledgement, and cordial thanks
of her authorities, to those who were
chiefly instrumental in compelling that
evacuation. I would tender, therefore,
on behalf of the State of Maryland, to
Major General McClellan, and the gal
lant officers and men under his com
mand, my earnest and hearty thanks
for the distinguished courage, skill and
onllntry with which that achievement
o• •
was accomplished. It reflects a lus
tre upon the ability of the command
er-in-chief, and the heroism and endur
ance of his followers, that the country
everywhere recognizes, and that even
our enemies are constrained to ac
To Governor Curtin, of Pennsylva
nia, and the militia of his State, who
rallied with alacrity at the first symp
toms of an invasion, our warmest
thanks are also due. The readiness
with which they crossed the border
and took their stand beside the Mary
land brigade, Shows that the border is
in all respects • but an ideal line, and
that in such a cause as now unites us,
Pennsylvania and Maryland are but
I cannot forbear to notice in this
connection the conduct of our own re-
giments that took part in the recent
battles. All reports concur in repre
senting their gallantry as all their
State could desire. The numbers of
their killed and wounded, and their
torn and tattered standards, bear wit
ness to the position they occupied in
the field. To the Second, Third and
Fifth Maryland Regiments, the Purn
ell Home Brigade, and the First Ma
ryland Artillery,
who participated in
the recent battles, I would therefore
tender the thanks that are so justly
their due.

—A great Union meeting was held at
New Orleans on the 17th of Septem
ber, at which Col. A. J. Hamilton, of
Texas, made a stirring and patriotic
speech. Speaking of the wretched
condition of Texas since the rebellion,
he said :
" The first act of the confederate
mobocracy of Texas was to rob the
Union—its mother, who had picked it
up out of the wilderness a poor found
ling—of all the arms and munitions of
war in the State, helped by the treach
ery of a man who is now no more.—
This was done even before they had
joined the Confederacy. With the
help of the money they had stolen at
the same time, from the same source,
they purchased all the powder in the
State, and then when the people woke
up they found they had no arms, no
powder, nothing to resist with, and so
they were at the mercy of this unprin
cipled horde.
"The consequences of all this aro too
apparent to-day. in all the broad
limits of that State there was no man
who could say he was actually poor.—
Be might have but a humble home, a
little log cabin, but he had plenty.—
This was before the era of Secession.—
Go to that poor man's home now.—
You will find his wife clothed in rags,
and weeping for her husband, who, she
will tell you, three days ago was drag
ged off as a conscript to pour forth his
blood like water in furtherance of a
, ause whielt he detests"

Sketch of Gensral I 5 on—Arrest of
General Davis.
Eoursvim,ii, Sept. 29.—There ore
many coellicting accounts of the shoot
ing of (ten. Nol6oll h) - General Davis.
About a week ago Nelson placed Da
vis in command of the Home forces of
this city. At night, Davis reported
to Nelson the number of men working
in the intrenchinenta and enrolled for
service. Nelson cursed him for not
having more. Davis replied that he
was a general officer, and demanded
the treatment of a gentleman. Nel
son, in an insulting manner, ordered
Lim to report at Cincinnati, and told
him he would order the Provost Mar
shall to eject him from the city.
Governor 3lortou and Gen. Nelson
were stamling near the desk of the
Galt 'Louse, when General Davis ap
proached and requested Gov. Morton
to Nvitnes , ; the conversation between
himself and Nelson. He demanded of
Nelson an apology fur the treatment
he had received last week. Nelson be
ing a little deaf, asked him to speak
louder. Davis again deinanded an
apology. Nelson denounced him and
slapped him in the face. Davis stepped
back, clenelpid his fist, and again de
manded an apology. Nelson slapped
him in the face and denounced him as
a coward. Davis then turned away,
procured a pistol from a friend, and
followed Nelson, who was going up
stairs. Davis told Nelson to defend
himself, and immediately fired, the ball
penetrating the left breast.
Nelson died in about twenty minutes.
Previous to expiring he expressed a
wish to see his old friend, the Rev. Mr.
Talbot., Rector of the Calvary Episco
pal Church, who was then at the Galt
House, and the latter administered the
Sacrament according to the forms of
his church, the Coneral repeating the
service after the Minister, and refused
to talk on any other saloject. He said
lie regretted that he had not long ago
turned his attention to religion.
Origin of the Affray.
The origin of the dispute is believed
to have been the following.:—Last
week General Davie- who had been as
signed to the command of the armed
citizens of Louisville, reported that his
brigade was nearly ready, and he
wished to know of General Nelson if
he could get arms for them. "How
many men have you ?" asked Nelson.
"A bout 2500." "A ht• •' 2500! "About
2500 !! " You a regular officer, and
report stout time number of men in your
command I Don't you know, sir, you
should get the exact number ?" "But.
General," rennet( Davis, " I didn't ex
pect to get the guns now; I ouiy wan
ted to learn if I. co old get thein, and
where, and, having learned that, I
would ascertain the numher needed,
and then draw them." "...Boat :1500 I"
persisted Nel,om F-IpCIICI you
from your e•:.minland, and order you
to report to General Y, right, and
I've a d--d mind to scud you out of
the city with a Provost Guard." Da
vis immediately left for Cincinnati to
report, as ordered to General Wright.
When lie arrived there he foolol that
the General had lops vied, that day,
for Louisville, and Davis returned
the next boat! to the latter city, whore
the fatal affray occurred.
Davis was arrested, and will be tried
to-morrow, at which time further par
ticulaN viii be made public.
Sketch f C-en. Nelson
Brigadier General William Nelson,
commanding a division under General
Buell, was a native of Mason co., Ky.l
Craving beerfeducated in the navy, and
having obtained the rank of lieutenant,
he was detailed in the spring of 1801
to command the Ohio river fleet of
gunboats. His extensive acquain lance
Sri lb the people of Kentucky, and his
large relationship in that State, point
ed to him as a proper person, during
the bad health of General Anderson, l
to be sent to Kentucky to sound the
loyal sentiment of that State; and to
strengthen it,. Accordingly, as early I
as April he, went thither, and began
the formation of a camp, and the re
cruiting troops at a point between
Garrardville, and Danville, since
known as "Camp Dick Robinson."—
Some time since Col. Geo. 11. Thomas, 'I
of the 2d Cavalry, proceeded thither, I
having received the appointment of,
brigadier general of volunteers, and ,
assumed the command. General Nel- 1
son was ordered to form a camp at
Washington, Mason county, Ky., for
the enlistment of troops. lie was full 1
forty years of age, with a massive phys
ique and commanding presence. To
fine natural abilities arid large experi
ence in arms he added great energy of
character and fine judgment of men.—
, He it was who ordered the arrest of
Stanton, Caste & Co., though they
were old friends and companions.-1
Ile did not recognize any relationships
in life when duty demands their pros
, tration or sacrifice. His brother, T.
Nelson, of Indiana, is our present Min
ister to Chile, and his brother-in-law,
J. Monroe Stockton, Postmaster at
Maysville. His naval services may
be ,
summed up in a few words. He l
lentered the navy as a citizen of Ken
tacky, the date of his original entry
into Llic services being January 20,
18-10. In 1855 he was promoted to a
lieutenancy after passing through the
various degrees of' rank. His sea ser
vice under that commission was about
two and a half years. His total sea
service was twelve years and six mos.
Ile was on shore and other duty for
nearly five years, and had been unem
ployed for nearly five years. Ile was
last at sea in May, 1800, on the sloop
St. Louis, in the Home Squadron. On
his return home he was appointed on
ordnance duty at the Washington na
vy yard, from which post lie was sent
to Kentnekv, as stated above, on spe.

cial duty for the War Department.—
Ile was made 0 brigadier general, with
a commission dating from Sept. 16,

General Davi3, at the outbreak of
the rebellion, was a captain in the
First Ile ‘ rmlar Artillery, having been
appointed Seeond Lieutenant from the
Stake of Indiana, in June, IS IS. Du
ring the present war he has been al
most constantly in service in the West.
In the summer and fall of 1801 be
was ospecialy active and useful in Mis
souri, at which time he was acting Ad
jutant-General and Colonel of Volun
teers. Under Gen. Curtis he com
manded with distinguished success a
brigade. in the great and brilliant three
days' fighting which resulted in the sig
nal victory at Pea Ridge, in kl
over Van Doru, Price and Pike. It is
hearbsiekening to find so brave and so
serviceable a champion of the good
cause bring himself to the fate which
now seems. to stare him in the face.

Official Report of the Losses in the
Late Battles in Maryland.
WAsitiscyroN, September 30.—The
following report, of the victories of
South Mountain and Antietam has
been forwarded to the headquarters
of the army by General McClellan :
nun SHARvsnunu, 1
Supt. 29, 1.30 p. m.
To 31;j. Gen. Iralleek, Gen.-in-Chief
G ENERAL have the honor to re
port the following as some of the re
sults of the battles of South Mountain
and Antietam :
At South Mountain our loss was
Total -
At Antietam our loss was
Wounded -
Loss in the two battles - 14,794
The rebels in the two battles, as
near as can be ascertained from the
number of their dead found upon the
field and from other data, will nut ildl
short of the following estimate:
Major Davis, Assistant Inspector
General, who superintends the burial
of the dead, reports about 3,000 rebels
buried upon the field of Antietam, by
our troops. Previous tg, this, howev
er, the rebels had buried many of their
own dead, upon the distant portion of
the battle field, which they occupied
after the battle—probably, at least 500.
The loss of the rebels at South Moun
tain cannot be ascertained with accu
racy; but as our troops continually
drove them, from the commencement
of the action, and as a much greater
number of their dead were seen on the
field than of our own men, it is not
unreasonable to suppose that their
loss was greater than ours. Estima
ting their killed at 500, the total rebel
killed in the two battles would be
4000. Accordim , to the ratio of our
TERMS, $1,50 a year in advance
own killed and wounded, this would
make their loss in wounded, 13,742.
As nearly as can be ascertained at
this time, the number of prisoners ta
ken by our troops in the two battles,
will, at the lowest estimate, amount to
5.000. The full returns will no doubt
show a larger number. Of these about
1,200 are wounded.
This gives the rebel loss in killed,
wounded and prisoners, 25,542. It
will be observed that this does not in
clude their stragglers, the number of
whom is said by citizens hero to be
large. It may be safely concluded,
therefore, that the rebel army lost at
least 30,000 of their best troops during
their compaign in Maryland.
From the time our troops first en
countered the enemy in Maryland un
til he was driven back into Virginia
we captured 13 guns, 7 eitissmis, nine
limbers, 30 colors and 1 signal flag.
We have not lost a single gun or col
or. On the battle-field of Antietam
14,000 small arms were collected. be
sides the large number carried off by
citizens and those distributed on the
grounds to the recruits and other un
armed men arriving immediately after
the battle. At South Mountain no
collection of small arms was Made, ow
to the haste of the pursuit from
that point; 400 were taken on the op
posite side of the Potomac.

Sufferings of Union Prisoners in
Report of a Released Volunteer Nurse,
[From the IV.oliu:4tou Star.]
Mr. .Tames 11. Bell, of the Interior
Department, one of the volunteer nur
ses recently captured at Bull Run, was
among those released from the Rich
mond prisons on Wednesday: last and
arrived here on I , 'riday. From him
we get the following interesting par ,
ticulars of the adventures of the Wash
The citizen prisoners of Washing:
ton just released with Pope's officers
were captured about 12 o'clock on
Sunday, August 30, some three miles
southwest of Bull Run Bridge. Rely
ing on Pope's despatch, they pushed
on thinking the battle-field in our pos
session, till the first they knew- the
rebel cavalry lurking in the bushes
had them surrounded. They were
marched off through the battle-field
for five miles to Gainesville, where
they were quartered in a wheat field
adjacent to a crowd of some 1,500 U.
S. soldier prisoners. They were kept
at this place until Wednesday morn
ing when an order came to march for
Fairflix Court House, to be sent be
yond the rebel lines. They had noth
ing to eat front Sunday morning till
Wednesday at 3 o'clock, w hen th e y
marched into a cornfield vid told to
help themselves, raw or roasted.—
From this place they proceeded by the
Fairfax turnpike through the entire
secession army, resting on each side
of the turnpike, to a large farm house
some eight miles in the rear of Fair
fax Court House. At this place they
slept on the ground as usual, without
blanket or shawl, or anything to sus
tain nature, water being denied for
nearly the entire night. On the af
ternoon of Thursday they were order
ed to march in the direction of Big
Falls of Potomac, being promised safe
conduct across to Maryland.
The whole rebel army accompanied
them during the afternoon and night,
till towards morning, when they
were stopped within five miles of Great
Falls. here the rebel General Rip
ley made them a speech, saying that
they were enemies of the South, that
if they were not fin' the South they
were against it; that their object in
going to the battle-field was to gloat
over a supposed Confederate reverse;
land that he should send them to Rich
mond, &c. They were placed in six
teen wagons, and conveyed over the
rough and rocky road back to Gaines
ville. On the road the guards shot a
hog, which was cut up and divided
among the prisoners. They passed
through the battle-field, on the way
back to Gainesville, by a different route
to the two first, and saw a much lar
ger number of Union dead than on
either of the otheroccasions. It being
Saturday, the dead had been on the
field seven days unburied. In ono.
place the dead of Gen. Stahl's brigade
covered the ground SO, thick as to al
most touch each other. They saw
large piles of rails and wood, seem
ingly recently hauled for the intention
of burning the now black and putrid
bodies. On Saturday night they slept
at Warrenton, proceeding the next
day to White Sulphur, and sleeping
on Sunday
_night in the woods near the
Rappahannock. They werepermitted
to rest an hour at Culpeper, then took
the track of the Central Va. Railroad
for the Rapidan. When about five
miles on the way, met Jeff Davis and
J. P. Benjamin on a hand car on the
way for Culpepper. At Rapidan -sta
tion they got a ration of bacon, which,
with the hog shot several days befbre,
were the only two cooked rations da
ting their nine days tramp.
They were conveyed in the cars from
Rapidan to Gordonsville, where they
were told by Dr. Boyle that martial
law prevailed, and hence neither wa
ter or food was allowed them. The
treatment at this place was most bru
tal. For three mortal hours they, with
Pope's officers and some 200 soldier
prisoners were compelled to stand in
the hot sun and submit to the humil
iation of having their persons searched
for money, while all manner of coarse
and abusive epithets wore freely ap
plied from the haughty, pompons swag
gering mayor, down 1.0 the dirty, sav
ages, known as Confederate soldiers.

confined in a room of the Libby prison,

before as a negro hospital. On the

ment in this place for seventeen day's.
The food furnished them was not only
insufficient but unfit for any animal
but a hog .to cat. The consequence
was that they were good customers of

harsh treatment.
Indians Still at their Bloody Work in
By the following•from the Daily
Wisconsin, of the 23d of September, it
Will be seen that the Indians still con- '
Urine their bloody work in Minnesota;
Last Tuesday night, an attack was
made upon the town of Paynesville,
in &clinics county, about twenty-five
miles distant from St. Cloud, Minna°.
ta. In one dwelling there were ten
men lodging, who had been engaged
during the day in threshing grain.--,
,The house was fired about 12 o'clock,
and in trying to escapo,one ma.n,named
Boyden, was shot through the thigh s .
but escaped to the bushes, and was
rescued the next day by a party from
the town of Richmond, who returned
to the scene. Five shots wore fired,.
and but one took effect. The Indiana
secured ten horses and twelve head of
Wo aro informed by men who have
come from Minnesota, that one-half of
the horrors of the Indian massacre in
that State have not been told. Deeds
have been performed by the rod devils
too indecent and horrid for publication
and the people in the outskirts of the
State, who Were saved and have es,
eaped, have become so perfectly alarm,
ed that it is doubtful if they ever re,
turn to their homes again. Minnesota
will suffer greatly by it, as a State; to
say nothing about the loss of so many
of her citizens.
Conductor Crippen, of the La Crosse,
road, says that a little boy came down
on the cars a few days since, who was
the last of his flunily. His filther,
mother, and brothers and sisters had
been killed, and he had only escaped
by being out in the bushes at the
spring, when the Indians came to their
house and murdered the family.
A gentleman came down on the cars
to bring his children to Middleton, ir ‘
this State, where he had friends. reav= .
rug left them, he said he was going,
back to devote the rest of his life to;
killing Indians,. his wife and daugh
ter were captives in the hands of the,
savages. All the border Minnesotians .
are handing together to kill the Indians,
whenever and wherever they find them,
being determined to exterminate them.
When one knows a half of the atroci
ties the wretches have been guilty of,
he will justify the border men in their
determination, and only say that or
dinary shooting is *too merciful a fate,
for the beastly, barbarous Sioux.
