The vessels, so far as we could see, were

THE SECOND ATTACK ON TIIE
AQUIA CREEK BATTERIES.
WASHINGTON, Sunday, June 2.
From a messenger direct this morning at 10
o'clock from Aquia Creek, by the steamer An-
Gaista, the following facts are obtained rela
tive to the contest yesterday at Aqu<a Creek :
The engagement commenced on Friday, as
heretofore stated, and lasted two hours.
Yesterday (Saturday) it was renewed, and
continued twice that length of time. The lower,
cr beach battery, which had been so essential
Iy damaged the day previous, had, in the
meantime, been repaired by the Confederates,
in force, it is supposed, two thousand strong.
The Frctlorn yesterday approached to with
in abolit two raiies from the shore, early in the
jtfternoen, and fired four or Gve shots, when
the-Pawnee entered into the conflict, taking a
position nearer to the laud. For the first two
hours, the fire from tho shore batteries was
very brisk, but was returned with more ex
pedition by the FAwv.ce. During the engage
ment, she fired 100 shells, oce of which was
seen to explode immediately over the heads of
tbe Confederates who were working the bat
tery. The observer, through a telescope, saw
numbers of bodies of them carried away on
During that time the shore movements were
exceedingly brisk. The Freeborn lodged three
shells in succession in the beach battery, per
ceptibly damaging the works, which had the
effect of greatly diminishing the fire. The
Freeborn received two shot,one of which passed
through the cabin, damaging some of the
croekery, but not the vessel/except making a
passage through the bulwarks of siight conse
quence. The Pawnee received eigiit or nine
shot, but all too high to inflict much damage.
One struck her maintopsail yard, which was
thereby mashing ; another grazed the mizzen
masthead ted passed through the hammock
It is the opinion of thg officers O;J board,
that had the rebels been provided with pood
gunners, the vessels might probably have been
sank. Some of the Confederates' shots passed
over the masthead to the Maryland shore.
The Ana cost a retnrncd here this morning.
The Paicna and Freeborn hauled off beyond
the range -of the enemy's fire. The Yankee,
which went down on Friday with dispatches,
fired a few shots only, she not being prepared
for n, long contest.
The railroad depot and building 3 oa the
shore at Aquia Creek are ail destroyed. The
damage to the beach battery is not consider
ed permanent, as the Confederates can toon
It is safe to say tbat at least tea or twelve
were killed on the part of Ika Confederates,
bat is not known how many were wounded.
All the officers engaged in the fight concur
in iho opinion tlmt the Confederates have rifl

REPORTS FROM CAIRO.
Cxir.o, 111., Sunday, June 2.
There is nothing authentic i relation to a
movement down the river from this point, but
it ie certain that the force at this point is to be
considerably increased. Two additional regi
ments are ordered here in addition to a regi
ment organized in this. Congressional District
Another Company of Illinois Artillery, now
j at Springfield, is under marching orders, and
i will move in a day or two. The Government
has chartered the big wharf strainer that lies
here. It is capable of conveying several thou
sand troops ar.tl stores. It is understood, also
that the Government has chartered twenty
five l iver steamers at St. Louis.
A-SHIILAiiSiI AT WILL A .MS P 0 RT, AID.
llagertown, Md., Saturday, June 1.
This morning the secession forces attempted
to take possession of the ferry boat lying o|>-
posite Williamsport, for the purpose, as is con
jectured, of removing into " Falling Waters,"
i a point four mile below where there is a con
| siderabie number of secession troops stationed
who doubtless intended by means of the boat
to cross to tho Maryland side on a marauding
The Union company at Williamsport,as soon
as they observed the opposite party possessing
themselves ef the boat, ordered th.ra to desist
which they refused to do,whereupon the Union
guns opened fire upon them, which was return
! Ed, and a brisk fire kept up on both sides for
about un hour. Three or four Secessionists
were wounded, one seriously. None killed or
: wounded ou this side.
Upon the commencement of hostilities the
! boat was deserted by the Secessionists, and
remains safely at its moorings.
It is reported that the attempt to take it
will be renewed to night. The river will be
| closeiy watched by the Union Guards, who
have been reinforced by a company from Clear
1 Spring. The Union company from Sharps
lurgh is on its way to William-port with one
1 or two field pieces.
Washington, Thursday, May 30.1361.
One of the events to day was the opening
of the bids for tiio supplying cattle on the
I hoof, for the use of the army. It was a de-
I parture from the general rule for the War
1 Department to open bids in public, and to
read them off for '.he information of curious
; spectators. There were about one hundred
| and fifty bids put in, but some of them cm
braced conditions which rendered it necessary
that, they should be rejected. The bids ranged
from $3 90 to $3 per one huLdred pounds.
The lowest bidder was fund to Mr. Hugh
, Maher, of Chicago, 111, who offered to fur
nish whatever was [called for at that rate of
$3 90 per hundred, delivered at llarrisburg,
| and $4 30 delivered at Washington. There
was a bid to deliver at Washington at $4 43,
: but the everage of Mr. Maker's bid is lower
than that. It is probable that the bulk of
the number to be delivered under this lei ting
: will be called for at Hrrisburg. Mr. Maher
| is known to be responsible, and the contract
will, doubtless, be awarded to him. At the
1 rate offered, it seems to be cheaper to feed
;be troops on fresh beef than on salt.
the Mcdonald habeas corpus
Kr. Louis, Friday, May 31, 1 61.
} When the McDonald habeas corpus case
: came up this moi oing in the United States
District Court, Gen. Ilarcey made the return
that Capt. McDonald had been removed to
| Iliincis, and was now in the military command
| of Gen. McClelian; that he had never had the
• body of the prisoner under his control, conse
quently he was unable to produce him. Gen.
Harney further stated that by orders from
| Washington dated may 10, but only received
j yesterday, he had been removed from the ccm
! mand of this Department.
It is understood that Gen. Lyon succeeds
, Gen. Harney.
The Democrat denies that Col. Blair's Ecgi
; meat is ordered to Virginia.
j ACTIVITY OF UNIONISTS IN MIS
Warsaw, Mo., Friday, May 13.1861,
The Union men from Pettis, Henry, Benton
I and Morgan Couuties,numbering some 700, or
j gunized seven companies near Camp Cole in
| this county on Tuesday last, ar.d threaten
death to every Secessionist in the Osage Val
ley. They have sent an agent to General
; Harney for arms. Great excitement exists
AFFAIRS IN BALTIMORE.
Two large colnnabiads lately shipped from
i Pittsburg to Fort Mcllenry, were spiked by
the Secessionists in the streets of Baltimore,
and it was not discovered until they had been
f mounted in the Fort.
i A party cf rowdies left Baltimore on
i Thursday night, to go to Federal Iliil and kill
| some cf the picket-guard there, but in place of
killing them, the guard shot three and the rest
I Fifty Knights of the Golden Circle and a
5 Lieutenant, who have been stationed at Ilar
! per's Ferry, were in Baltimore on Thursday,
| and made arrangements for a grand secret plot
; to again take possession of Baltimore. That
city has been utterly demoralized since Gen.
Cadwalladcr has had possession of It, and
; where there were forty Ur.ion flags flying
; when he entered, there is not one now.
There has been a great deal of dissatisfac
tion in the Massachusetts camp at the Relay
1 House, arising froai the unmilitary conduct of
Brig.-Gen. Jone?. He was burnt in c-fligy at
their camp the other evening. Brig. Gen.
Pierce will supercede Gen. Jor.es, and the lat
ter will go to Fortress Monroe.
AFFAIRS AT FORTRESS MONROE.
From a visitor to Fort Monroe we have
the following particulars : Four hundred
slaves had fled and taken refuge in Fort
Monroe and Newport News. One planter by
the name of Parrish, offered, 011 condition of
his being allowed to leave his plantation and
go to Richmond with his family, to free his
slaves, to the number of thirty five, and actu
ally did place the papers in the hands of the
Lieutenant, who was scat with a squad to af
ford him protection until he departed.
The inhabitants have the utmost fear of
the troops, and dare not leave their homes un
lees by permission of the Colonel commanding.
There are numerous batteries in course of
erection along the James, Elizabeth and York
Rivers, but they cannot effect any damage to
the vessels on the river, as the range is too
Several of the Old Dominion dragoonß,
armed, equipped and uniformed, as the law of
Virginia directs, have been taken by the Ver

DEATH OF SENATOR DOUGLAS.
Hon. STEPHEN A. DOCGLAS died at Chicago,

SOUTHERN MAILS STOPPED.
The l'ostmaster General has directed the
tuaiis to nli the Southern Stales which hare
i adopted secession ordinances to be stopped, so
1 that hereafter there can be no regular postal
■ communication between the North and South.
I With reference to the action of the Southern
government on this subject the Boston Post
says:—The Confederate usurpation, having at
last got their own postal service arranged, are
1 resolved no longer to endure the outrage of
j letting the U. S- Government bear the expense
of carrying their letters for them. Mr. Ileagan,
their Postmaster General, has issued a procla
' mation suspending and prohibiting the opera
tions of the Post Office Department of the
United States within the limits of the Confed
erate States, after the thirty-first day of May.
Postmasters are forbidden to collect postage
j on mail matter sent to or received from the
, United States until a postal treaty shall be
j made by this Government with the Southern
] Confederacy, and, until postage stamps and
stamped envelopes are furnished, all mail mat
| ter i.s required to be paid for in money. Five
| ceiiTs shall be charged for every single letter
conveyed a distance of less than five hundred
| miles within the limits of the Confederacy, and
j for any distance exceeding that point double
j that rate. Uncle Sam is shoved off without
so much as a vote of thanks for having per
: formed this service lor the last three or four
j months. If postmasters are forbidden to col
lect postage on mail matter sent to or received
from the United States until a postal treaty is
made, how are the Confederate insurgents to
' keep up their correspondence with Europe
when their own ports are blockaded ?
S:IESCE AIDING TIIC WAR. —The excellent
uses to which NAPOLEON I If. put the magnet
ic telegraph am) of the balloon during his cam
paign in Italv are matters of history. Both
these energies, we ate glad to see, are to bo
brought into requisition by our own War De
partment, besides another and most valuable
auxiliary for reconnoitering the enemy at
. . .
night—the calcium light, which is already in
' use at Fortress Monroe. A telegraph lias
been erected between tiie head-quarters of the
Army at Washington and Arlington Heights,
Iso that there is likely to be no reception of
the causeless alarm and its mbseqnent confu
! sion which occurred in the army on the night
j following tiie occupation of Alexandria. As
j tiie efficiency of tiie army depends in great
measure upon giving it rest when not actually
in motion, every precaution which will guard
| against surprise must be of great advantage
in conducting the war. Tiie solditr should
| never lie down to his rest under apprehension
that he may be suddenly called to arms by the
j " enemy driving in the pickets." A telegraph
strung upon poles in the ordinary way is well
! enough where permanent communication is to
be maintained, but for the nse of the Army
while actually in the field, this will be found
wholly impracticable on account of the time
and large force required for putting, it in op
eration. Modern invention lias supplied a
insulated telegraphic wire, which is
not larger than on ordinary bed cord, and
equally as ductile, and weighing only from one
| hundred to two hundred pounds to the mile.
Five or ten miles of such a cord can be reeled
upon an ordinary hose carriage, or, divided in
to coils of a few pounds each for conveyance
upon men's shoulders, can be promptly laid
along a roadway, through a field or wood,
; across brooks or swampy ground, without in
the least affecting its insulation. Operators
accompanying the pickets with email local bat
teries, will -thus establish instantaneous com.
muuicatiou between any required number of
the outposts and the head quarters of the
army. As soon as the wires have served their
purpose, they can be again coiled up for future
SPECIAL CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS.- —ln two
of the Southern States, at least—Maryland
and Kentucky—election will be held for Rep
resentatives to the extra session of Congress,
which will commence on the It!) of July. Gov
j ernor Hicks, of Maryland,lias ordered the elec
tion in thut State to be held on the loth of
June ; and the proclamation of Gov. Magoffin
fixes Thursday, June the 20th, as the day for
the electing members of Congress in Kentucky.
The Louisville Journal and other Union pa
-1 pers are moving energetically in favor of
thorough Union candidates.
FOUR STATES ALREADY lIEJCCED. —Four
Slave States have already been rescued from
anarchy and destruction by the firmness and
promptness displayed by the Government and
the people of the North against secession and
rebellion. Delaware, Maryland Missouri and
Kentucky arc now vieing with each other in
their devotion to the Government, the Union
and the time-honored star-spangled bauner.—
Western Yirginia also stands firm for the
Union, and before loug we hope to record tbat

Two columns of troops from Gen. MCCLEL-
I.AN'S command, one under command of Col.
KELLY, of the First Virginia Volunteers, and
the other under command of Col. CHITTENDEN,
composed of the Indiana Volunteers, left
Grafton early last night, nnd after marching
the entile night about 20 miles through a
drenching rain, surprised a camp of rebels,
2,000 strong, at Phillippa, Va , and routed
them, killing 13, capturing a large amount of
arms, horses, ammunition, provisions, camp
equippage, Ac. The surprise was complete,
and at the lust advice®, the Federal troops
were in hot pursuit of the rebels. It is prob
bie that many prisoners will be taken.
Col KELLY was mortally wonnded, and lias
since died. Several others of the Federal troops
were slightly wounded.
US* PROPOSAL FOR THE' $3,OOO,OOO LOAN.
—Wc observe that Gov. Curlin has given no
tice that proposals will be received at the office
of the Secretary of the Commonwealth, until 3
o'clock, P. M., of the fifth of June, for the
loaning to the Commonwealth the sum of three
Millions of Dollars, at six percent per annum,
payable semi-annually in Philadelphia, redeem
able in ten years, free from all taxation for any
purpose whatever. The State reserves the
right to accept the whole or any part of the
amount offered to be taken, unless the proposer
stipulates otherwise. No conditional propo
sals will be considered. Upon the acceptance
of any proposals, at least ten per cent, of the
amount must be paid down, the balance, if pre
ferred by the bidder, in thirty and sixty days,
when certificates shall issue for the same, bear
ing interest from the time of payment.
COMMISSIONrus APPOINTED. —The Governor
lias appointed JACOD FRY, Jr., of .Montgom
ery county, and BENJAMIN lIAYWOOO, of
Schuylkill county, Commissioners to investi
gate the facts connected with the furnishing
of supplies of every kind, including clothing,
&e , to the State.
The appointment of these persons is a guar
an'ce that the investigation will be thorough
and searching. Mr. Fry has the entire confi
dence of the people of this State. As Auditor
Gene: al be proved himself fearless and incor
ruptible. Mr. HAYWOOD aiso sustains the
highest character. The public may rest ratis

SIIASIKITI. TREATMENT OF THE TROOPS AT

Regiments of the Pennsylvania troops encamp

authorities hare demaned a retorm. Much cl

TREASON IN VIRGINIA. —Judge Lyons, of
Virginia, in a recent charge to a grand jury at
Richmond, gave the following definition of
" Any citizen ot "resident of Virginia, who
now adheres to the United States, giving the
government thereof or its officers aid or com
fort, is guilty of treason. Furnishing inform
ation or intelligence, money, arms, ammuni
tion, provisions, or any other assistance, wheth
er gratuitously or for reward, is giving aid,
and therefore committing treason. Even the
attempt to do any of these things, though un
successful, will make a man guilty of treason."
Senator Mason advocates the expulsion from
the State of Virginia of all those who do not
vote in favor of Seces.-ion; he will not even
let those remain who do not vote at all, claim
ing that all who are not with theiu arc against
"THE FLAGGED ARMY OK PENNSYLVANIA." —
Such, it seems, is tiie soubriquet that our vol
unteers have gained in Washington. These
men, who left their homes, their families und
their business, to tight their country's battles
and protect it in its hour of danger, have been
rewarded by equipment in such trashy clothes
that they are ashamed to- show themselves,
while the splendidly equipped regiments of
Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island are
paraded, reviewed and admired. If, from a
mistaken economy, we had been disposed to
stint their supplies, we should have only our
selves to blame; but we have spent money lib
erally, and paid encngh to make them in every
way comfortable—with what effect every one
knows, and every day brings new confirmation
of the statements as first received. We learn
from the testimony of a friend who visited the
camp at York, that when one of their coats
was being tried on by a soldier, the. buck drop
ped out! So fur, what we have contributed
ha- not been for the benefit of the soldiers, but
of the sharks who have influence at Harris
We regret to say it, but we are forced to
the conclusion that our State is in bad bands.
Corruption is the order of the day at the
State Capitol. The people of Pennsylvania
demand that those who have had a iiand in
the swindle shall be fcrretted out and punish
ed. No man who has a relative or a friend
amongst the spldiera who ore now suffering bv
the frauds, should rest until the perpetrators
are brought to condign punishment.— Venn

BURYING THE AMERICAN FLAG. — At Mem

can ilag was procured, enclosed in a coffin
borne on a bier by eight men, and formally
buried. The fnueral was preceded by a band
of music playing the dead march, and was at
tended by about 600 Secessionists. The grave
was dug alongside of a statue of Gen. Jackson
in one of the public squares, inlo which the
flag was lowered. The earth wus then thrown
upon the stars and stripes, the grave filled up,
and the procession returned peacefully to their
homes. The very same evening, there arose
one of the most violent gales of wind ever
witnessed in Memphis, nnd every secession flag
in the city was blown down. Singular to relate
a very large secession flag which was suspend
ed near th • grave was blown away from the
staff ai.d carried by the wind to the newlv fill
