Mr.. WRl,nr:—Oti last - Thursday evening
between nine and' ten o'clock. a gang of
merciless rowdies assembled in front of a
certa n store on Locust street, nearly oppo
site the residence of a citizen supposed to
be dying, and adjoining that of a very sick
neighbor, and there, with tin horns, a horse
addle, cow-bells and other naise:ne instru
ments, carninenced and kept up for half an
hour a in ist hideens din and noise, occa
sionally interrupted by shouts and shrieks
of profanity, touch to the annoyance of the
people of the neighberh )ad and greatly to
the distress of the sick.
The occasion of this display or dcceary
was a report that a certain gentleman haC.
becn lately marzied. It was hoped, the
nerves of our worthy chief magistrate the
Burgess, who lives nearly opposit:, wc;thl
have been so operated on that he wonld have
summoned the police and had these rioters
arrested. It is shameful that such proceed
ings should be tolerated in a civilized com

of our good.citizens will assemble and give
the blackguards a good thrashing. W.

Dk:;r. "Ser:"—Another week gone by and
we a‘re still in our Camp. Nothing of arty
consequence has taken place. There is still
many reports among the men such as that
we are going to Galveston, Texas; that we
aregoing to encamp at York, Pa., for the
bahince of the winter; that we are to go to
Washington as "Provost" Guard, &c.; but
we put very little dependence on any of
theta, as we have hod so many disappoint
ments. We all think that we will be kept
here all winter. There has quite a change
taken place in our Company ("I"). Our
Captain (Granello) has resigned and Lieut.
C. C. Haldeman has been appointed to fill
the vacancy. I hope we will be as wel
pleased with our new captain as we were
with our old one. Capt. Granelle, upon his
retiring from us, was presented with a very
handsome sword and we feel that we have
lost'a frac friend. Ido not think there is
another captain in the regiment that was
more attached to his men. As a man and
officer in every reApeet lie is•a gentleman.
Lieut. B. I% ILildeinan joined the regi

eight and a half feet of water being able to

over coven and a quarter feet could pass
into Pamlico Sound.
No vcs.el, either, could pass the outside,

City iflicic Thrk struck on the bar, loaded
with a cargo valued nt $200,000, and con

proved a total loss. The captain and crow,
after bravely remaining in the rigging for
forty hours were saved.
The gunboat Zottatv tiraggeel her anchors,

a total loss; her crew are saved.
The steamer Pocolontas went ashore near

the water casks were old whisky, camphine,

the Union pilots of llatteras have proved
themselves traitors, having in'tentiiinally
run vessels ashore.'
One of the storms can only be described
as terrific. The water in every direction
was covered with foam, the waves dashing
with a clear sweep across the Hatteras shore
and completely cutting off the post from all
outside communication. The current was
rushing tit the rate of
,five miles per hour,
and the chop seas prevented General Burn
side from answering any of the signals of
distress, or communicating with hisgenerals.

The official statement made by General
Thomas, that one hundred and fourteen rel.>:
els had been buried up to a certain hour,
has led the public, prone to expect exagge
ration, to believe that the figure represented
the extent of the loss of the enemy in killed.
We are, however, assured from resources
that we 'oalieve entirely reliable, that not
less than three hundred rebels Were lift
dead on the ground. The official repert of
Gen. Schoeptrs brigade surgeon states that
one hundred and ninety dead rebels were
buried on Monday. A gentleman of this
city writes that two hundred and eighty
three dead bodies of rebels were found.—
Another, who was on the ground, ltd.:Wins
us that he 'counted eighty-five dead rebels
in 0,0 old field, nod that they were lying
thick in the underbrush in every direction.
We are convinced that the rebel loss in kill
ed was very nearly, if not altogether, three
hundred. Various statements are made of
the number of horses and mules taken. The
evidence is that at least fifteen hundred fell
into our hands.
Fur some time the fighting was close and
desperate. Just befo:To tho Tenth Indiana
was supported, the vehemence of the contest
was most remarkable. The rebels were
pressing ,on with much resolution, fierce and
confident, thinking that they had an inferior
force before them. They were not in fair
battle order. but swarmed in the woods like
Indians, though keeping in line, and
whooped like savages.- The Tenth Indiana
stood their ground, ar:d though in some con-
fusion, their faces were all toward the ene
my, and the crash of rifles was incessant,
while the smoke formed a heavy sulphur
fog. The Indianians and Mississippians
were for a time within twenty yards of each
other, and there was no sign of flinching on
The great scene of the battle was when
the Second Minnesota and 'the-Ninth Ohio
appeared in good order sweeping through
the field. The Second Minnesota, from its
position in the column, was closest to the
centre of the fight and the heaviest of the
enemy's fire. They were the first troops
that used the bayonet, and the stile in which
they went hit the tight is the theme of en
thusiastic comment throw:limit the army.—
The Ninth Ohio were next to the ! , linne. , ata
in getting into the fight. They were not
behind the Minnesota men, but on their
right, and had a little farther to march as
they wheeled into the field. They came up
in better order than the Minnesota or any
other regiment had done. They wore as
exactly in line when they made the grand
decisive rusk with the bayonet as if upon
holiday parade, and moved like invincible
veterans. Their gallant colonel, "Bub"
McCook, galloped about through the whist
ling rifle balls, and directed - his men not only
with perfect disregard of personal exposure
but with very good judgment. When the
Ninth Ohio made their bayonet charge the
rebels were behind a fence, whiob was built
upon a row of logs and made a fair breast
work. The rebels stood until the "bully
Dutchmen" overthrew the rails with their
bayonets. Then they fled, the German regi
ment after them at a high rate of speed.
The severity of the fighting may be reck
oned from the fact that in places the under
brush, which the woods were filled,
was cut down by the storm of balls. There.
were thickets in which not a stick could be
discovered that was not shattered by balls.
After the rebel attack was repulsed, they
soon lost all organization, and fled through
the woods helter-skelter. Our troops pur
sued with overwhelming energy, literally
crushing the undergrowth under their head
long columns, The rebels were apparently
panic stricken upon returning to their en
trenchments. They were intent only upon
getting away, and their flight was more as
tonishing and appalling in i:s abandon than
the famous advance from Bull Run upon

The Cincitinatti Canynercia7 ,acs:
A week ngo this morning the defeated
army of Gen. 7,lllicoffer, without arms or
baggage, ran away from Mill Spring, and
our victorious troops possessed their fortifi
cations, artillery, baggage train, stores, and
arms. We do not know precisely how well
the time has been improved. We are,as
mired that the roads are in such a condition
dint, without groat improvement in the
weather, an advance in force is impossible.
We are informed, however, that nine Ohio,
Indiana, and Kentucky regiments have,
during the week, reinforced Gen. Thomas,
so that ho now has an army of more than
twenty thousand effective men. This obvi
ously means business. We must be patient,

the arrival and reception of Mason and Sli

the West India mail for England. On the
evening of their arrival the Commissioners
were invited to dine with Admiral Milne.
We have seen additional items of foreign
intelligence by the City of New York. The
privateer Sumter, on her arrival off Cadiz
with the crews of the American vessels she
had burnt, asked permission to enter the
harbor. The United States Consul protested
against her reception; but the Spanish au
thorities decided that if the Sumter deliv
ered her prisoners to the custody of Spain
she should be sheltered. This was done,
and the Rebel privateer went into the Span
ish port without any salute. Mr. Russell,
in his hitest letter to the London Times,
predicts that our Government would not de
liver up Mason and Slidell.
