A NARROW ESCAPE.—On Friday , last, while .Mr. Thonias Fisher's ' four horse team, loaded with wood, was crossing the - first canal bridge below town, the bottom of the bridge fell out, leaving_the wagon and two hors es, Mr. Johnson the driver, and his son, drop into - the canal. The two lead horses had just got of the bridge when it gave way, the ring at the end of the tongue giving way, they esca ped being'dragged back into the canal which saved the other two horses and the riders from being crushed to death. Neither the horses or riders were se riously injured. R.

Thanksgiving Proclamation. WASHINGTON, Oct. 3.—By the Pres ident of the United States of America A PROCLAMATION. The year that is drawing to its close has been filled with the blessings of ' fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which arc so constant- I lyenjoyed that we are prone to for get the source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually in sensible to the ever watchful provi dence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magni tude and severity, which has some times to invite and provoke the ag gressions of foreign States, peace has been preserved with all,nations, order has been maintained, laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict. While that theatre has been greatly contract ed by theadvancing armies and navies of the Union. The needful diversions of wealth and strength, from the fields of peaceful industry, to the national defence, have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship. The axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than hereto fore. The population has steadily in creased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battlefield, and the coun try, rejoicing in the conscientiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect a continuance of years, with a large increase of freedom no human counsel bath designed. Not withstanding the mortal hand had worked on these great things, they are gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in an ger for our sins, bath nevertheless re remembet ed mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly; reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do, therefore, invite my *flow citi zens in all parts of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who arc sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thut'sday in November next as a day of thanksgiving and prayer to our be nificent Father who_doth reside in the heavens, and I recommend them that, while offering up the ascriptions just ly due to him for such singular deliv erances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our nation al perverseness and disobedience com mend to his tender care all those who have become widows and orphans or suffering in the civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervent ly implore the interposition of the Al mighty hand to preserve the health of the nation and to restore it, as soon as it may be consistent with the di vine purposes, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union. In testimony wherof I have here unto set my hand and caused the seal of the United Stakes to be affixed. Done at the City of Washington, this thi: d day of October, in the year of our Lord 1863, and of the independene of the United States the eighty-eighth. A. LINCOLN. By the President, tV M. 11. SEWARD, See ' y of State " The Whirlwind" at the South. tinder the significant caption "The Whirlwind is coining," the Richmond Sentinel, of October 3d, publishes the following communica tion : " In your editorial of yesterday, you touched on the extortions of the times and dwelt on the articles of food and fuel. But there is another branch of this horrid business you merely nam ed, fraught with fearful import. I mean house rents. It would startle and con- found the public if they understood what is going on among landlords and tenants in this city. And, unless the Legislature can relieve the poor, and many barely in living circumstances, no one can foretell the results. Take a case or two as an illustration. "Here is an old man, with a large family, whose house rent has • been $lBO per annum, and he has, by very frugal fare managed on his little in come to keep himself and daughters alive, while his two sons are in the ar my. His yearly lease expires, and his rent is raised from the above sum to $1,600, nearly his entire income. Be sides, he has no place to go—house he cannot find, yet the law puts him out doors, while his sons defend the pro perty of his wealthy oppressor. "Another: A mechanic, whose en tire income is required for the support of his family, is notified that his for mer rent of $l5O per year, will be rais ed to $950 per year. He cannot pay it. Gets a shanty a mile and nearly a half from his work at $350 per year, and wastes the physical energies nee ded in his duties to the Government in going a journey to market, and then to his place of labor, and back, so that he is not half the man for the hours of labor he was before. 0.) 00 la, . " One more outof hundreds : A poor woman, whose husband is in the army has supported herself by bard toil, and economy, and clothed her husband in part, paying a small rent, is told her rent will be raised four times its last year's rates, and must be paid in ad vance. " But 7 cannot proceed. If the Le gislature of the Old Dominion can af ford no relief and no protection, they had better never have met, and it were well if they never meet again." The sentences we have italicised are what we would especially call atten tion to. Unless the ~Legislature can relieve the poor, '° no one can foretell the result." The result indicated is the " whirlwind" named in the title of •the article, which is to sweep off those who sowed the wind when they joined in the iniquitous rebellion. But what can the Legislature do ? They can afford no relief, and as the concluding sentence says," they had better never have met, and it were well if they nev er meet again." The only reliof for the poor of the South that can be hoped for, is from the suppression of the rebellion. Our Army Correspondence. Hoscrna, 3d Div., Ist ARMY CORPS, CAMP NEAR CULPEPPER, VA., S l Oct. 6, 1863. DEAR GLOBE:—From Gettysburg to the Army of the Potomac is a way tortuous, difficult and hard to travel.— It would seem that every official on the route was determined to arrest further progress. Many a fellow, who left Gettysburg a month ago, has not yet reached his regiment, but lies in Camp Tyler, Camp Distribution, or some other "Castle of Despair," along the way. I counted it evidence of su perior tact that I made this arduous journey in five days time. In Baltimore I met with two men from Lee's army. They were East Tennessecans and had been conscript ed into the rebel ranks from which they took the earliest opportunity to escape. One of them had been in jail at Knoxville, I believe, since April, until ho at last took the rebel oath, and was at once sent to the army.— lie remained there ono week ! He lived near the- Kentucky line, and was in the habit of decamping in to that State, when the rebels were near, and living with his uncle, until it was safe to go home. Last spring the old man, ho said, was getting be hind with his work "right smart," and he ventured home to help him, but had hardly more than begun to work, when the cavalry came galloping up to seize him. He ran to a stump, where his coat and revolver were lying, and un dertook to skedaddle; but seeing that the field was surrounded, he threw away the pistol, and surrendered.— His farther was arrested at the same time and escaped the same . night, pay ing a sentinel a hundred dollars to let hill, pass. These 'ten know what spi rit actuates this rebellion, and if seces sionists among Northern people had not abjured their reason, the "inside view" obtained from such men, of the character of the rebellion, ought to cure them of their love for it. Near Alexandria, three, camps lie in close proximity to each other, named respectively, Parole, Distribution, and Convalescent. Camp Distribution is a depot for mon who are ready to be sent to their regiments. They are sent in squagi; the different army corps being kcl t distinct, and are tho roughly fitted out before starting.— The names of the other two camps need no explanation. No restriction is imposed upon communication be tween camps, except Parole, which is carefully guarded. I there met an old acquaintance, 13 M. Greene, not unknown to the music loving part of our citizens. They will be glad to know that he sings sweetly as ever, and is the same-genial, warm hearted fellow, as before his rough ex perience of a soldier's life. Just then, he was unwell, though not seriously. A great religious revival was progres sing in the camp, under the direction of the Christian Commission, and in laboring at the nightly meetings Mr. Green had taken cold, and perhaps overtasked his physical powers. An epoch in Camp Convalescent is that revival. There were all the mar- Iced features incident to occasions of great religious interest. How gratify ing it was to see so many soldiers ear nestly engaged in caring for their souls, and deeply concerned for their irreligious comrades. They were of no sect, did 'not know to what church the ministers who preached to them belonged; but they understood each other, and know that the spirit which animated them was the seine and made them a brotherhood. I wish some of the men who curse chaplains and the Christian Commission, and everything that aims to benefit the soldier in his religious interests could have been with no at one of those meetings and heard the men talk; and then have gone with me to the tent where I was quartered, where two packs of cards were in use, and oaths and blasphemies and disgusting obscenities were pass ing from mouth to mouth. I would have liked to ask such a man—there are many of them—which crowd ho would sooner his mother, or his wife, should find him in. The Army of the Potomac is now holding the hither bank of the Rapidan and the rebels are entrenched on the far , her side, in a position which seem ed to me more formidable than Fred ericksburg. They threw some Midis, on Sunday last, at a party of our men who were foraging in a corn field. No ono was injured, so far as I have hoard. I was on picket, one tour, along the river, but am now detailed at the Di vision Hospital, and beldom see any of the regiment, except those who are hero as patients. There is now only one of our company in the hospital— Patrick Meenan. Soldiering has been too hard for Patrick, and he is pretty well broken down, but will, I hope, recruit again, though ho is past the age for active campaigning. The com pany is partially filled up with con scripts, who are well thought of, and will make good soldiers. There comes an order, perhaps to move. " OBSERVER."

Halleck, General-in-Chief: 1 have the honor to report that the ex pedition sent out ou Monday under Gen. Hester, to break up or capture the guerillas and boat grows, organized by the enemy in Matthews county, has returned, having in the main ac complished its object. Four rebel naval officers, twenty men and twenty-five head of cattle, belonging to the Confederate govern ment, together with arms and horses, are the results. Large numbers of rebel boats were destroyed. Our loss is one man killed. General Wister reports the 4th Uni ted States Infantry (colored) making thirty miles in one day, with no strag glers. J. G. FOSTER, Maj. Gen. Commanding. From Vicksburg. The Democrat of this city has a spe cial dispatch from Vicksburg, dated the 30th December, which says that Gen. Joe Johnston is at Canton, Miss. with 150,000 troops. His supposed design is to prevent reinforcements going to Gen. Rose erans. Gen. Stephen Leo has 4000 rebel cavalry near Vicksburg. General Johnston says their proclivi ties are useless unless they crush Gen. Rosecrans before reinforcements reach The Atlanta Appeal, speaking of the success of the rebel arms at Chatta nooga, says: '• Wo shall now be re cognized ;our securities will rise; Val landigham and Woodward will be elected." Important from the• Southwest. The Democrat has a dispatch from Leavenworth, saying intelligence has reached Fort Scott, of a threatened at tack of Fort Smith. Gen. Blunt loft the former post for the latter on Sun day last. The Rebel General Cobell,with about ten thousand men, from Gener al Cooper's rebel force crossed the Ar kansas river, east of Fort Smith, on the Ist instant, and joined Gen. Coffee, at Crooking Prairie, Mo. Gen. Cobell was determined to make a raid into Arkansas or Missouri. On the receipt of this intelligence, all the Federal cavalryin the Kansas district, and a battery, were sent to Fort Scott. A letter from Fort Scott, dated on the 7th, says Lieutenant Tappan, of Gen. Blunt's staff, has arrived here. lie reports all Blunt'sstaff and bodyguard as having been captured by the rebels; also the command under Lieut. Pond, at Baxter's Springs. Gen. Blunt had succeeded in getting ten miles away, but it was uncertain whether he had escaped or not. The I•ebels ~wore under Quantrell, Hunter and Gordon, and were moving towards Fort. Scott. There is no danger of Fort Scott being taken, it being abundantly strong enough to resist any attack. St. Louis, Oct. O.—lnformation has been received at headquarters of the rebel raid into Central Missouri, from Warsaw. The rebels moved east with the sus. petted design of striking the Pacific railroad at _Lawrie bridge, burning that structure and destroy ing the road. Gen. Brown, commanding Om Con tral District, was at Clinton, Ilenr3 county yesterday, in pursuit of the re There is also a force moving up from Springfield, and another from Le banon, which will press the enemy so closely that they can hardly do much mischief Gen. Totten left here lad night for Jefferson city to take command of a portion of the forpe intended to moot the rebels. FROM CHATTANOOGA. WASUINOTON, Oct. 10.—The Repub lican extra says the Government has received despatches from General Ro secrans, dated Chattanooga, Oct. 9th, yesterday, and from other officers on duty at his headquarters. Also, offi cial dispatches from Nashville, all con taining reports most encouraging for the National cause. The forces under Gen. Mitchell over took the rebel davalry on the 6th inst., below Shelbyville, and a battle im mediately ensued, resulting in a com plete rout of the enemy, who did not stop for his wounded. Over ono hun dred of the enemy were left on the field, and also a large number of woun ded. Gon. Mitchell sent a force after the flying rebels, who scattered panic stricken, that being the only means of escaping the great military cordon es tablished by General Rosecrans. The railroads torn up by the raiders have been repaired and the telegraph communication is ro•established. The sacking of Shelbyville was as cowardly and disgraceful to the rebel arms as was that of Lawrence by the raid Quanta. . - We had neither for ces nor stores there beyond those of the inhabitants, many of them seces sionists, and' they were robbed anti their houses burned. They were with out protection, hence the disgrace to the Confederates who made such an unmilitary onslaught upon the place. Bragg's bombardment of Chattanoo ga was a complete failure, so far as any,damage whatever being done to the defences or to our gallant army-- A few women and children wore fright ened, and a few dwellings were burnt. Brilliant Affair near Franklin, Ten. J. S. B LOUISVILLE, Oct. 9.—Genl. Crook, commanding a brigade of cavalry 12 miles beyond Franklin, yesterday af. ternoon came up with a portion of Wharton's rebel cavalry. A sharp fight ensued, resulting in one hundred and twenty-five rebels being killed and wounded, and three hundred prisoners and four cannon captured. The rebels were in full rare:43ml our forces pur suing. No casualties to the federals are reported. _ The telegraph to Chattanooga has been working since yesterday, and the railroad will be in running order to morrow to Bridgeport. No rebel prisoners arc confined in Louisville, except Dick McCann and thirty of his men. From Charleston, Pensacola, &c FORTRESS MONROE, Oct. .—T 10.thhe steamer Circassian, from Pensacola, Key West and Charleston Bar, arrived hero, reports that there was to be a combined attack by the army and na vy on Charleston, on the 11th instant. The yellow fever was prevalent at Pensacola when the Circassian left.— Paymaster Jenkins, of the gunboat Potomac, and Paymaster John C Hill had died. At the time of her leaving the surgeons had gained control of the fever. The Circassian is bound to the B'ston Navy Yard. CINCINNATI, Oct. 12.—The Gazette's despatch from Indianapolis says that surgeons have arrived there direct from Chattanooga, who were taken prisoners in the Chickamauga fight. They were stripped of everything.— They represent that the impression is general that Bragg will attack Rose crans on Tuesday next, to prevent the Ohio soldiers from voting. Reinforcements had arrived. They came by the first train through from Bridgeport. Also the road has been repaired, and all important points are strongly fortified. ST. Louis, Oct. 9 Massacre of Capt Fisk's Expedition C►iicnao, Oct. B.—A special dispatch from St. Paul says: "Intelligence brought by half-breeds to Pembina, states that Captain Fisk's overland expedition to Idaho has been massacred by the Sioux. There is nothing definite, except that the mas sacre took place on the big bend of the Missouri river. The half-breeds say that the Sioux displayed as trophies the guns and other articles known to have belonged to the expedition." The despatch adds: "Vire only hope that the report may prove untrue, and that it may be another version of an attack upon a party of minors, who came down the Missouri river, the ac counts of which have already been published." ST. Louis. OCT. 9 Senator Ramsey's Treaty Expedition Governor Ramsey has had an inter view with the Northwest Indians The ceremony of the occasion is thus described : The chiefs sat on the ground before him, their headmen ranged in the same posture behind them, lit their black stone pipes and smoked in si lence. The Commissioners addressed them through the interpreter, Mr. Beau'lean, telling them ho was very glad to see them, that he did not wish to council with them till the Pembina Indians came in, as he wished them to not jointly in the matters to be brought before them. lie supposed they were hungry and would find them something to eat, an announcement which they received with a grunt of satisfaction. ' One of the chiefs arose, and in a speech apparently of great eloquence, testified to the accuracy of the Com missioner's suspicion that his people were hungry, and expressed great ad miration for that part of the Gover nor's speech in which that delicate subject was alluded to. "I alone am speaking," ho said, "but I speak for all my people. They are all of one mind. We heartily thank you.". A list of the number of the different bands was then given us by the chiefs, as follows: May-thy:l-gun-ming, 300; Moose-dury, 130 ; Little Rock, 120; Crooked Arm, 70,—six hundred and twenty iu all, to whom provisions and tobacco were distributed.

The enemy were under cover in a ravine running north and south The General form ed a section of his force and the Bat tery on the north; the 6th lowa fell in line of battle on the east side of the ravine, and the Second Nebraska Cav alry on the west side. The Second Nebraska opened fire on the enemy immediately, which was kept up by both regiments until night set in.— The Second Nebraska after the third round, advanced to within thirty yards of the enemy and poured round after round into the conglomerated mass of Indians, squaws, papooses, ponies and dogs, the mingled noise of which was the most hideous that ever racked hu man oars. The Indians fought like demons, but over shot us. The firing gradually ceased as the night advan ced. Daring the night the enemy es caped, leaving every thing they pos sessed in the world on the battle field, oven their squaws and children. in the morning we found the enemy's dead and wounded in every direction. As many as three hundred were killed, and the wounded innumerable. On the 4th our scouts overhauled the ene my on several occasions resulting in spirited fights. On the sth, the de tachment sent to the north were .driv on in with a loss of six killed. The 2d 'Nebraska was immediately ordered to pursue the enemy, which they did, overtaking a part of them seven miles from camp, where a short engagement took place, resulting in killing six In dians. Our loss during the three days fighting, amounts to sixty one killed and wounded. We have taken over three hundted prisoners.

A skirmish ensued, when our cavalry, most of whom were boys, were re pulsed, with the loss of one killed, three wounded, and ten or twelve prisoners. Two of the boys cut their way out and came back to camp, though severely wounded. The next day a small force of rebels came in between Charlestown, where a Union inihntry force is 'stationed, and liar per's Ferry, and actually picketed the road within two miles of .liarper's Ferry.

On ly on Tuesday bad the head of the col umn, under General Weitzel, reached Franklin, and not till yesterday morn ing had the rear, under Washhurne, crossed Berwick Bay.
