BATTLE NEAR SUMMERVILLE.
CLARKSBURG, VA., Thursday, Sept. 12,1861.
A battle took place about 3 o'clock ou
Tuesday near Summerville. Gen.
Rosecranz, after making a reconoisance, found
Floyd's army, 5,000 strong,with 16 field pieces
entrenched io a powerful position, on the top
of a mountain, at Cannix Ferry, on the west
side of Gauley River. The rear aud extreme
of both flanks were inaccessible. The front
was masked with heavy forests and a close
Col. Lytie's Ohio 10th Regiment, of Gen.
Benham's brigade, was in advance, and drove
a strong detachment of the enemy out of camp
this side of the position, the site of which was
unknown. Shortly afterward his scouts, cou
sisting of four companies, suddeuly discover
ed themselves in the face of a parepet battery
and a long line of palisades for riflemen, when
the battle opened fiercely The remainder of
the 10th and the 13th Ohio were brought into
action successively by Gen. Benham, and the
12th afterward by Capt. Hartsuff, whose ob
ject was au armed reconnoissance. The enemy
played upon our forces terribly, with musketry,
rifles, cauister and shell, causing some casual
ties. Col*Lytle led several companies of Irish
16 charge the battery, when he was brought
down by a shot in the leg.
Col. Smith's 13th Ohio engaged the enemy
on the left, and Col. Lowe's 12th Ohio directly
in front. Lowe fell dead at the head of his
regiment early in the hottest fire by a ball in
McMullen's howitzer battery and Snyder's
two field pieces meantime were got into the
best position possible under the circumstances, |
and soon silenced two of the Rebel guns.
The fire slackened at intervals, but grew
more furious as night approached, when the
German brigade was led gallantly into the ac
tiou by Col. MeCook, under the direction of j
Adjt.-Gen. Hartsuff, but alter a furious fight
of three hours, ordered the recall of the troops
and the men laid on their arms within a short
distance of the enemy, each ready to resume
the contest the next morning.
The thief, Floyd, tied during the night, and
sunk the boats iu the river, and destroyed the
temporary bridge which he made when he first
occupied the position. The turbulence aud
depth ot the river, and the exhaustion of the
troops, made it impossible to follow him. He j
left his camp equipage, wagons, horses, large
quantities of ammunition, and 50 head of cat- i
Gur loss is 15 killed and about 70 wounded 1
—generally flesh wounds. The Rebel loss is j
not ascertained. They carried their dead and :
wounded with them. Their loss was certainly
serious. Capt. McGroaty of Cincinnati, Capt.
McMnllen, and Lieut. Snyder of Ohio, are
among the wounded, but not dangerously.
Twenty-five of Col. Tyler's men, who were
taken by Floyd at Cross Lane, were recaptur
ed, and Floyd's personal baggage, with that
of his officers, was taken by Gen. Benbam's
brigade, which suffered most. It was com
manded by him in person, aud Col. McCook
led his brigade.
T Gens. Rosecranz and Benham, Col. McCook,
Col. Lytic, Col. Lowe, Capt. Hartsuff, Capt.
Snyder, Capt. MeCullen Burke, of the 10th
Ohio, and the other officers, displayed conspi
cuous persoual gallantry. The troops were
exclusively from Ohio, aud showed great
ENGAGEMENT WITH REBELS.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 11,1861.
A large party started out at seven o'clock
this raoruing from the vicinity of Chain Bridge
under the command of Colonel STEVENS, of the
New York Highlanders.
It consisted of several detached companies
of infantry, a company of cavalry, and Capt.
As our skirmishers advanced, the enemy's
pickets retired beyond Lewinsvills, about seven
miles beyond Chain Bridge.
Our troops having accomplished the object
of their errand, connected with the reconnois
sauce of the country, began to retrace their
steps, when a large force of Confederates, con
sisting of two or three regiments of infantry,
and Col. STEWART'S regiment of Virginia cav
alry, with a battery of four pieces, were seen
approaching from the direction of Falls Church,
evidently with a view of cutting them off aud
preventing their return to their camp.
Liue of battle was formed by the enemy's
forces, and the Confederate battery opened
with shell, which was replied to by GRIFFIN'S
battery. Several rounds were fired on each
side, when our troops ceased liriug for about
tweuty minutes, in order to give the enemy an
opportunity, which they did not embrace, of
meeting them on the opeu field—the Confed
erates beiug for the greater part concealed iu
Our forces, on resuming operations, brought
into action a 32 pounder, the shell from which
soon silenced the Confederates' battery.
Ihe gun was then directed towards the
cavalry, which appeared on the road leading
to Falls Chureh, and soon seut them flying—
a number reeling from their saddles and fall
ing to the ground as the shell exploded in their

which these troops are attached, arrived on

THE ARREST OF W. 11. WINDER.
PHILADELPHIA , Friday, Sept. 13,1861.
W. 11. Winder, recently arrested for dis
loyalty to the Government, was sent to Fort
Lafayette this afternoon. His correspondence
seems to have been very extensive with Jeff.
Davis, ex-Vice-President Breckinridge, Hon.
Mr. Burnett, aud other prominent Secession
ists. Both the copies of his own letters and
the original of his correspondents, are in pos
session of the Federal authorities. In his let
ters Winder pledges his warmest sympathies
with the rebels. He assures Mr. Breckinridge
thut his course in the Scnate.is approved of by
large numbers of the best men iu the North,
who are only awaiting an opportunity to over
throw mob-rule, and that many of the Home
Guards, ot which he was a member, had joined
that organization only to disarm suspicion.—
One of Mr Breckinridge's letters is only ten
days old. The correspondence wili prove very
valuable aid to the Government iu discovering
treason in our midst.
FROM WESTERN VIRGINIA.
CLARKSBURG, Va., Friday, Sept. 13,1861.
The Rebels commenced an advance on both
pikes yesterday morning toward Elk Water
and Cheat Mountain Summit. They succeed
ed iu surrounding the fort on the Summit,aud
cut the telegraph wire. They contiuued to
advance on Elk Water .until within two miles
of our troops, when a few shells from Loomis's
battery dispersed them. Skirmishing was kept
up all night.
This morning two regiments were sent to
cut their way through to the summit and suc
ceeded, the Rebels retreating in all directions.
Two Rebel officers spying round the camp
at Elk Water this morning were surprised by j
our pickets and shot. The body of one was !
brought into camp, and it proved to tie that
of Col. John A. Washington of Mount Vernon.

SPAIN DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THE
WASHINGTON, Sunday. Sept. 15.
Mr. TASSARA, the Spanish Minister, has call
ed to assure the Secretary of State that the
report from Charleston that the Captain Gen
eral of Cuba has issued a proclamation, recog
nizing the rebel flag, is untrue. What Las
happened is, that vessels from any port in the
United States, in possession of the rebels,com
ing into a port with irregular papers, are ad
mitted ex necessitate, without notice of their
irregularity, just as they have been admitted
j in all other ports siucc the rebels obtained
1 possession of the Custom houses in the insur
-1 gent States. It is needless to say that no such
i vessels can be abroad without escaping the
blockading force. There is no recognition of
a rebel flag in the Spanish ports or in any

Gov. MAGOFFIN has issued the following
proclamation, in obedience to the subjoined
resolutions adopted by the General Assembly
of the Commonwealth of Kentucky :
"The Government of the Confederate States,
the State of Tennessee, and all others concern

to the Pennsylvania Reserve Division under

incidents. Governor Curtin was not only
handsomely and enthusiastically received by
the troops, but his speech was full of the true
fire of genuine patriotism. We are glad to

THE LATEST WAR NEWS.;
The Spanish Minister at Washington has
assured the Secretary of State that the report
of a proclamation by the Captain-General of
Cuba, recognizing the rebel flag in Cuban
ports, is entirely unfounded. No such procla
mation has been issued. What has been done
is simply to allow vessels to enter without re
gular papers wheu they hail from a port on
the Southern coast in possession of the rebels,
rendering it impossible for regular papers to
be procured. Of course no such vessels could
be afloat, but those escaping the blockading
force. There was no intention to extend any
leniency to the pirates—at least so the Span
ish Minister is said to represent to the Secreta
ry of State.
From Washington we have rumors of picket
skirmishes all along the line, and the narrow
escape of a Dumber of our pickets, who have
ventured too near the enemy. In return,how
ever, several of the rebel sentiueis have been
picked oil' by our sharpshooters.
We have a variety of interesting items from
the South, via Louisville. The report of the
sending of Union prisoners from Richmond to
the forts iu Charleston harbpr, are confirmed,
and among those sent were nearly all the offi
cers from New-York, including Col. CORCORAN,
Major PRATT, Chaplain DODGE and others.—
The Southern Assistant Secretary of War has
resigned. There was a great scarcity of Army
shoes and clothing, and soldiers able to help
supply tho want had been detailed frotn the
Army for that duty. JEFF. THOMPSON has
issued a proclamation iu auswer to FREMONT'S,
threatening to "hang, draw and quarter a
miniou of A. LINCOLN, for every Confederate
prisoner executed." Fears are entertaiued
that the heavy rains and the Army worm
would greatly damage the Southern crops.
There is no truth in the rumor that Gen.
Fremont is to be superseded in his command
in the West. The visit of Gen. Meigs to
that section is simply connected with the affair
of the Quartermaster's Department.
Green, the Rebel General in Missouri, was
at Glasgow, in that State, 011 Wednesday,
but pushed on southward, having [stolen a
steamer, released a number of Rebel prisoners
on board of it, and captured the truard of Na
tional troops who held the vessel. He had
with him 3,500 men. It is reported, though
not on sufficient authority, that Gen. Price
and Rains were ou Friday within 40 ,miles of
Lexington, Mo., with 15,000 men, and 18
pieces of artillery. A Government agent was
a few days since captured in Boone County,
and robbed of sl2,ooo,and a number of horses.
A bank in Columbia, in the same couuty, was
believed to be in danger also.
Gov. Magoffin has vetoed the resolution of
the Kentucky Legislature concerning the Reb
el troops in that State, but the Legislature
passed them over bis bead.
General MoCleMan has granted a full par
don to Private Scott, who was sentenced to
be shot for the military crime of sleeping at
his post. The considerations for this exercise
of clemency are the past good character of
Scott, and the fact that this is the first offence
of the kirnd committed in the army.
A heavy blow was yesterday dealt to the
traitors in Maryland ly the arrest of the ten
Baltimore delegates to the k Legislature, Mayor
Brown, Ross Winans, Henry May, and two
editors—of The Baltimore Exchange and The
Baltimore South. These arrests were ordered
by the authorities at Washington." and were
quietly made, although great excitemenCpre
vailed in the city.
All accounts of the reconnoissance made
the other day at Lewinsville, Ya., declare
that the National troops displayed the most
encouraging firmness and bravery in face of
a harrassiug fire from the hostile batteries
There is no longer any fear of a second panic
like that at Bull Run, and the knowledge
that our troops can ndw with certainty be re
lied on in the most seiious emergency has im
parted to the army a confidence which is of
the greatest value.
From Western Virginia we learn that on
Thnrsday the Rebels advanced toward Elk
Water and Cheat Mountain Summit. They
gained the Summit and pushed on toward
Elk Water. Our troops met them, dispersed
them, and night fell. On Friday morning two
regiments of National troops were sent to cnt
their way through to the Summit : this they
succeeded in doing, the Rebels retreating in
disorder. Two Rebel officers were shot nea
the camp at Elk Water ; oue of them proved
to he Col. John A. Washington of Mouut
t&- There have been siDce the Organization
of the Federal government eleven attempts
made to resist its authority. The first was
made in 1182 and was a conspiracy of some of
the officers of the Federal army to consolidate
the thirteen States into oue, and confer the
supreme power on Washington. The second
was iu 1787, called "Shay's" Insurrection iu
Massachusetts. The third was in 1791, popu
larly called "The Whiskey Insurrection of
Pennsylvania.' The fourth instance was iu
1814 by the Hartford Couveutiou Federalists.
The fifth, on which occasion the different sec
tions of the Union came into collision, was in
IS2O, under the administration of President
Monroe, and occurred on the question of the
admission of Missouri iuto the Union. The
sixth was a collision between the Legislature
of Georgia and the Federal government in re
gard to certain lands given by the latter to
the Creek Indians. The seventh was in 1830
with the Cherokees in Georgia. The eight
was the memorable nullifying ordinance of
South Carolina in 1832. The niuth was in
1842, and occurred in Hhode Island, between
the " Suffrage Association," and the State au
thorities. The tenth was in 1856, ou the part
of the Mormons, who resisted the Federal
authoritiy. The eleventh is the present at

ANXIOUS TO GET THE NEWS. — On Monday
at 11 o'clock, while five.Companies of the 23d
New York were out on picket duty, a Con
federate officer beeoned the advanced picket
for an interview. Our picket odvauced, when
the other asked if he could see the captain in
command. The request was granted, and
Cupt. Loyden met the Confederate Captain
Saunders of the Eleventh South Carolina
Regiment, our Captain stating what arms he
bore, and inquiring if the meeting was to be
a hostile one. Capt. Saunders said he was
also armed, but desired only a friendly inter
view. The result was afrieudly interview and the
conversation turned upon the subject of pick
ets firing upon each other, which they deplored
as contrary to the usages of civilized warfare,
arid what Capt. Loyden stated was contrary
to the express order of his Colonel, who for
bade his meu to cause death except in case of
self-defense. But Captain Saunders dropped
the subject, and impatiently inquired if it was
true tbat the Cape Hatleras fort had been
captured; that it was a heavy blow upon North
Carolina and the whole Southern coast.—
Capt. Loyden remarked that many such heavy
blows would have to be struck before the war
was closed ; and, out e/idering Capt. Saunders
some cigars, which he remarked was a luxury,
and a rare commodity in the Confederate
camp, the officers shook hands, exchanged sa
lutes, reversed positions, and separated, each
returning to bis command.— Philadelphia

solicitation of Kentnckians, have not been ob
jected to by any Kentnckians who had com

I most cordially sympathize with your ex

and cannot find, in your very short letter, any
declaration or intimation, that yon entertain
anv desire for the preservation of the Feder
