ISrabforfrHtporte. E. O. GOODRICH, EDITOR. TOW AJXT>Z. : Thursday Morning, November 7,1861. GENERAL SCOTT. Gen. Scott has resigned the command of the National Army, and has retired to private life laden with the honors of a long and brilliant career. This intelligence, though the step has been for some days anticipated, will affect with sadness all who read it—for all have long united in paying tribute to the bravery, skill, and patriotic devotion of the veteran chief, and to part from him is like bidding adieu to a valued friend. The record of Gen Scott's services is too freth in the memory of the people to make necessary more than the most hasty recapitu lation: He was born on the 13th of June, 1186, near Petersburg. Virginia. Educated for the law, he remaiued in that profession for about two years, and was then, in 1808, ap pointed a Captain of Artillery in the army.— In 1812 he was made a Lieutentant-Colonel; Adjutant General, with rank of Colonel, in 18IS; Colonel in the same year; Brigadier- General in 1814; Brevet Maicv'-General, for gallantry, in 1814; Major-General and Gen eral in-Chief of tho army in 1841; Brevet Lieutenant-Geueral in 1855. His chief battles have been at Queenstown Hights, Fort George, Fort Erie, Chippewa, Lundy's Lane, various engagements in the Black Hawk wars,. Vera Cruz, Cerro Gordo, Contreras, San Antonio, Cherubusco, Moliuo del Rey, Chepoltepec, Mexico. He was taken prisoner at Queenstown, and severely wounded at Lundy's Lane. For his services in this battle and that of Chippewa be re ceived from Congress a gold medal. For his gallantry in Mexico he was rewarded with the thauks of Congress ; and, especially for the victories achieved in frout of the City of Mex ico, he received another gold medal. The crowning honor won by him from his country was the brevet rank of Lieutenant-Genera!, which was to date from the day on which Vera Cruz was captured. Concerning Gen. Scott's skill as a Com mander, nothing need be said. There has never been any difference of opinion on that point. His campaigns have received high and enthusiastic praise from those whose ap probation is prnise indeed, and his reputation will rest securely upon his labors in the field. The Ftate of his health long since made him desire to be relieved from the arduous service of his command ; but his patriotism held him at his post till he saw the National Capital in a position of security, and could deliver to Ins successor a National army well ordered aud efficient, confident that with tranquility he could leave the destinies of bis couutry in the keeping of its brave defenders. The well-merited honors done to the retir ing General in-Chief by the President and Cabinet will cal' forth a sincere response from all who peruse the record, while the modesty nnd deep feeling evinced by the brief reply of tbo veteran will add to the sentiment of admi ration which his character inspires in every heart. The highest wish which a true desire for Gen Scott's happiness can frame is that be may live to see the day when this TTuion, iGnce more free from internal strife, shall re name the pursuits of peace, aud rejoice iu uudivided strength. THE STOB*.— The easterly storm of Satur day was one of the severest which has been experienced for many years, and caused one of the most terrible shipwrecks which has oc cured on the Atlantic Coast for years. The •hip Marilnaa was driven on the rocks near Boston Light, and totally lost, involving the destruction of twenty seven lives. Considera ble damage was done in "New-York City, par ticularly along the river fronts, where the tide innndateJ the celars, and even overflowed the pier destroying considerable quantities of goods and rendtfiing the places untenable.— The parks in the City suffered in their trees and foliage, the grounds were gullied by the heavy raia floods, aud some of the Railroads leading iuto the City had extensive damage done to their tracks. The Sound steamers were compelled to make a harbor anJ wait for the subsidence of the gale. They mostly arrived on Monday afternoon, and report two or three vessels ashore in the Sound. The pilot boats report the gale as very severe out side, and some of them lost sails and spars.— The grounds of the Geenwood Ceraetry were also considerably damaged. Our telegraph reports indicate that the storm has been uu usually severe elsewhere, especially in the Chesapeake Bay. Hjs- THE Trial of the Savannah Pirates, at New-York, has resulted in a failure of the jury to find a verdict. The jury, at the time of,its discharge, stood, in relation to the ac cused, as follows : Eight 'or conviction of the whole of the prisoners ; four opposed Three of the latter favored a verdict of guilty In the cases of tbe first three officers. The prisoners were remanded for a new trial, for which no day has yet been appointed. By order from tbe War Department, tbe Provost Martial of Alexandria has been directed to suspend the exercise of the civil tunetions be has recently performed, and to dismiss all tbe civil cases of which be has ta ken coguizance. It will be remembered that fhe Lad given judgment in several suits iu eavor of New-York merchar 13, who had been heated by Southern dabtc „ BY TELEGRAPH, , Over the Towanda Telegraph Line. GEN. FREMONT SUPERCEDED ! Hew YORK, NOT. 6, 1861. We have a despatch from Springfield, which says that the order to Gen. FREMONT to re lease his command was delivered to him on the eve of a battle, and that his officers and men refused to fight or stir a step. THE LATEST WAR NEWS. There has been a battle between Floyd and the forces of Gen. Rosecrans, on the Gauley River ; but the accounts thus far received are so meager that it is quite uncertain what bus really been done. We have intelligence suffi ciently accurate, however, to show that the National arras are still successful, and to lead us to hope that the rebel and traitor Floyd is fairly entrapped. It appears that, on Friday, Floyd opened fire from two points opposite Gauley bridge, and succeeded in sinking a ferry-boat, which, however, was raised again during the same night. No one was i killed on our side during his fire, which was some what heavy, though badly directed, and few were wounded, lie had cut a road around a hill where Rosecrans were encamped ; the latter, returning his fire, soon silenced two of his batteries, and was at the latest accounts about sending a force to attack him in the rear, so that it was expected that he would be entirely surrounded in a very short time.— Ou Saturday there was no lighting ; at that time the p< : tion of the forces ou both side 9 was as follows : The rebels held possession of the west bank of New River ; Gen. Schema's brigade was a few miles above the junction of the Gauly and New River ; Gen. Cox't brigade and Geu. Rosecrans were near the junction, between the rivers, and Gen. Ben ham was below the junction. It was believed by some that Gens JSchenck and Benbam would cross the river above and below Floyd, who has 1,000 men, and that they would catch him. We look with interest for fur ther intelligence. We have no definite news from the great Naval Expedition, farther than it was spoken on Wednesday morning. It is believed that it escaped the severe gale which raged along this section of the coast. From Springfield, Mo., we learn that the rumors of the removal of Gen. Fremont had reached the Western Department, creating a very great excitement, aud producing a deep feeling of hostility to the measure. It was not, however, really believed that the Gov ernment proposed to take tbe6tep. The num ber of the rebels killed the other day in the charge of Gen. Fremont's body guard is now ascertained to be at least 127. No news bad been received at Sprinirfield of the ap proaching change in the Rebel army by which Gen. Johnston was superseded by Price. | Our batteries on the Potomac are going on rapidly to completion. On Monday the guns of one of them were tried on the Rebel steamer George Page, with what result it could not be ascertained. The Resolute, ar riving at Washington last night, reports that seven of our soldiers have been wounded by the shot aud shells from the batteries at Ship ping Point. A gentleman who left New-Orleans on Oct. 24th, has arrived in Washington, bringing interesting intelligence from the Gulf States. He reports that the cotton is still on the plan tations, whence it cannot be removed for want of rope and bagging. In bis opinion, there fore, there was but little prospect of the great naval seizing a lurgc quantity of that staple, if indeed that were the object had in view. In New Orleans, all possible pre i parattoos had been made for the reception of | the fleet should it attempt a landing there Seven thousand men, fully armed, could be mustered at any one point in a couple of hours. The ram Manassas was again afloat aud watching for an opportunity to do mischief.— She sustained but elight damage from her collison with the Richmond. Silver was at 10 per cent, premium iu New Orleans and gold at 25. We find in the Baltimore papers a variety of interesting news from the South, copied from Richmond papers of as late date as the 29th ult. An interesting account of the ar rival of the National prisoners captured at the battle of Ball's Bluff is given, with a list of twenty two commissioned officers comprised in the number—s2s in all. Among them are Cols. Cogswell and Lee—the former of the Tammany, and the latter of the Massachusetts Twentieth, about whose fate there has been considerable uncertainty. A HORRIBLE CONFESSION —It may be recol lected by many of our readers, that about four years ago we published the awful account of the burning of the house of the Perkins farn Iv, at Mtlburn, at when all the family, in cluding father and mother, grandmother and eight children, eleven in all, perished in the flames! A Scotchman by the name of Walter Mitchell, who lived in the neighborhood at the time, and who had a dispute with Perkins as to the property, was suspected of the murder, but no proof could be found against him. He left soon after for the West. Before the burning of the house he warned Perkins off the premises, and threatened if he did not leave, to burn the house over his head. This Mitchell recently died in Illinois, and on bis death bed, confessed that he committed the horrible crime! He stated that he threw into the house a bottle of liquid, which set fire to it, and stupefied the inmates—that Mr. Perkins aroused himself ana came to the door, when be knocked him back again, killing him. This is a most revolting story, disclosing a depravity, which was too horrible to die with the murderer. If there he in the infernal re gions one place deeper and hotter than another, this eleven fold murderer will find it.—lhng hamton Rrpublicai. UTEST [BOM THE WAR. TIIE NAVAL EXPEDITION.

WASHINGTON, Friday, Nov. 1,1861. The following Inter from Gen. Scott was received by tbe President ou Thursday after noou : " HEADYRAKTEIW or THE ARMY, ) WASHINGTON, Oct. 31,1861. J " The Hon. S. CAMERON, Secretary of War : "SIR: For more than three years I have been unable from a hurt to mount a horse, or to wall! more than few paces at a time, and that with much pain. O'her and new infirmi ties, dropsy and vertigo, adtnonis!.' me that re pose of mind and body with the appliances of surgery and medicine are nectssary to add a little more to a life already protracted much beyond Ahe usual span of man. It is under such circumstances, made doubly painful by the unnatural and unjust rebellion now raging iu the Southern States of our so lately pios perous and happy Union, that I am compelled to request that my name shall be placed on | the list of urmy officers retired from active service. As this request is founded on an absolute right, granted by a recent act of Con gress, I am entirely at liberty to say it is with deep regret that I withdraw myself in these momentous times from the orders of u Presi dent who has treated me with much distinguish ed kindness and courtesy ; whom I know,upon much personal intercourse, to be patriotic with out sectional partialities or prejudices ; to be highly conscientious in the performance of every duty, ai.d of unrivaled activity and persever ance ; and to you, Mr. Secretary, whom 1 now officially address for the last lime, 1 beg to acknowledge my many obligations for the uni form high consideration I have reeeived at yonr hands, and have the honor to remain, Sir, with high respect, -■ Vuui ooertlent servant, " WIN FIELD SCOTT " A special Cabinet Council was convened on Friday morning, at 9 o'clock, to take tbe sob ject into consideration It was decided that Gen. Scott's request, under the circumstances of his advanced age and infirmities, could not be declined. Gen. McClellan was thereupon, with the unanimous agreement of thcCaoiuet, notified that the command of the army would oe devolved npon him. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the Cabinet again waited upon ihe President, aud attend ed him to the residence of Gen. Scott. Being seated, the President read to the Geuerai the following order : "On the Ist day of November, A-D. 1861, upon his own application to the President of the United States, Brevet Lieutenant General Winfield Scott is ordered to be placed, and hereby is placed, upon the list of retired offi cers of the army of the United States, without reduction in his current pay, subsistence, or allowances. "The American people will hear with sad ness and deep emotion that Gen. Scott lias withdrawn from the active control of the army, while the President and unanimous Cabinet ex press their own and the nation's sympathy in his personal affliction, and their profound sense of the important public services rendered by hint to his country during his long and brilliant career, among which will ever be gratefully dis tinguished his faithful devotion to the Constitu tion, the Union, and the flag, when assailed by parricidal rebellion. ABRAHAM LINCOLN." Gen. Scott therenpou rose and addressed the President nnd Cabinet, who had also risen, as follows : " PRESIDENT : This honr overwhelms me. It over pays all services 1 have attempted te ren der to my country. If I had any claims be fore, they are nil obliterated by this expression of approval by the President, with the remain ing support of his Cabinet. I know the Presi dent aud this Cabinet well. I know that the country has placed its interests in this trying crisis in safe keeping. Their counsels are wise ; their labors are as untiring as they are loyal, and their course is the right one. " President, you must excuse me. I am unable to stand longer to give utterance to the feelings of gratitude which oppress me. In my retiiemeut, I shall offer up my prayers to God tor this Administration, and for my coun try. I shall pray for it with confidence in its success over all enemies, aud that speedily." Tne President then took leave of Gen. Scott, giving him bis hand, and saying he hoped soon to write him a private letter expressive of his gratitude nnd affection. The President added : " GENERAL : You will naturally feel solici tude about the gentlemen of yonr staff, who have rendered you and their country such faithful service. I have taken that subject into consideration. I understand that they go with you to New-York. I shall desire them at their earliest convenience, after their return, to make their wishes known to me. I desire you now, however, to be satisfied that except the unavoidable privation of your counsel, and society, which they have so long enjoyed, the provision which will be tnade lor them wil he such as to render their situation hereafter as agreeable as it has been heretofore." Each member of the Administration then gave his baud to the veteran, and retired in profnnd silence. The Secretary of the Treasury and the Secretary of War accompany Gen. Scott to New-York to-morrow by the early train. THE ADVANCE OF FREMONTS'A RM Y. SfKiNOFLSLn, Mo., Tuesday, Oct. 29,.1861 The total number of killed, wounded and missing of the Body Guard is 51. The killed and wounded of the rebels, according to their own statement, is about 80. The Home Guard appears to hare come out strong. They captur ed and brought buck Major White, who was a prisoner, and the fourteen rebels who were taking him to Gen Price's cauip. Last night about twenty of them charged on Lieut. -Col. John H Price and twelve other rebels, killing one of them, twelve miles south of here, and brought all the rest on, aud they are BOW |M'is oners in our camp. The rear divisions of our army are corning np to us by forced marches. Gens. Pope's and Hunter's commands are expected here this evening, and Gen. McKinstry's to worrow. Ali of our troops are iu the best of spirits, aud full of enthusiasm. Gen. Fremont has taken possession of the flouring mill in this county, and is rapidly gathering supplies for the army. Gen. Price is near the Arkansas line. It is doubtful whether he will give us battle. The Rebel officers thought that the body guard that made the attack was 2.50U strong, and on their retreat swore at their in<*n as a set of cowards. We got about 60 of their muskets, dropped in their flight. Our advance is at Ozark, 15 miles sooth of here. Fifteen of the bodyguard were buried yester day afternoon with military honors. The B*r tcn Cadets, llolman's Sharpshooters, Gen. Fremont aud staff, all the surviving and nn wounded guards, und a large number of citi zens, male and female, followed in the proces sion. The bodies were buried in one grave, into which Gen. Fremont cast tbe first earth. ! RELEASE OF COL MULLIGAN BY GEN. PRICE. JKKKEKSON CITY, Friday, Nov, 1 1861. Passengers from tbe west report that Col. Mulligan bad been released by Gen Price.— He was seen at Warrensburg today, on his way to Lexington to briug away a child left there. His release indicates that the Commission from St Louis some days since to effect the exchange of Cols. Mulligan and Peabody and Yuri Horn for Gen Frost, Col Bowen, and Maj. Williams, captured at Camp Jackson has been successful. IMPORTANT FROM MISSOURI. ST. Lucia, Saturday, N<>v. 2,1961. The following is from the correspondence of The St. Louis Democrat: j CHARLTON COUNTY, Oct 30,1861. Judge McNeunt, a prominent citizen of this county, reached home yesterday direct from the headquarters of Gen. Price. He left the rebel camp at Neosho, Newton County, on Wednesday, the 22d, where Gen. Price and lien. McCulloch had united their forces, mak mg an army of a out 30.0U0 men. Gen Price had received a large supply of clothing, medicine, &c., and some arms llis riflt-U cannon had not reached him, but were expected to do soon Sunday ninht, under the charge of Geu. George 11. Clark, WHO had sent messengers forward to indicate his approach The Legislature was in session at Neosho, but lacked four of a quorum. This deficiency was expected soon to he made up by the at rival ot several of the members, when it was believed tDey wuulj confirm Claib. Jackso Us decluratiou of independence. Geu Price gives out that he will stand at Neosho and give Gen. Fremont battle, whom he expects easily to defeat, and then march on St. Louis and make bis Winter quarters in Central Missouri. J ERPERSON CITY, NOV. 3 1861. A scout arrived here yesterday, and reports at headquarters that he left G n Price in Sunday last at Neosho, with 13.000 of his own men, aud 5,000 Indians under lieu McCulloch.

NEWS FROM THE NAVAL EXPEDI TION. FORTRESS MONROE, Friday, Nov. 1. 1861. J Via BALTIMORE, Saturday, Nov. 2, LSGL. ) The Ethan Allen reports that she left the fleet off Cape Uatteras, and that the ferry boats Eagle and Commodore Perry had already been separated from the other vessels. The Roanoke, which has just returned from the blockade of Cbarhstou brings no intelligence. The shaft OI tbe Roanoke was broken when off Beaufort, and the prevalent heavy weather along the coast compelled her to coma up out side the course of the great expedition. It is supposed that the fleet has already reached its destination. A flag of truce went to Norfolk to-day, and has not yet returned. FORTRESS MONROE, Saturday, Nov. 2,1 via BALTIMORE, NOV. 3. j No intelligence of the Great Expedition lias yet arrived It is supposed that it yesterday reached its destination. A terrific gale has prevailed since last even ing, but there are uo apprehensions for the safety of the fleet. A flag of truce will go to Norfolk to morrow and some news concerning the Expedition will probabiy be received. The George Peabody arrived from New- York this morning to join the expedition, laden with stores and beet cattle. Her ulti mate destination was Key West and the Tor tugas. She went ashore ou Hampton bar.but will, probably, be got off to night. ENGAGEMENT BETWEEN GENEII ALS ROaECRANS AND FLOYD. CINCINNATI, Monday, Nov. 4, 1861. A special dispatch *o The. Gazette, dated Gallipolis the 2d inst., says that Geo. F'loyd opened fire on Gen. Rosecrans's forces yester i day morniHg from two points opposite Gnu ley I Bridge, and Camp Tompkins. The Telegraph Office and the Quartermaster's store are uo i douht destroyed. When my informant left Gauley yesterday, the shells of the rebels were aimed at the feny boats aud buildings above-named. The enemy has heavy guns and a large body of. infantry Gen. Floyd's force* opposite Camp Tompkins ate uol less than 4,000 How many of the Rebels are at Gauley Bridge, aud four miles this side, is not known. Telegraphic commnnieation by the Kanawha ltno is interrupted. The casualties are as vet t unknown. There has been no communication , by tele}!roph with (seti Ilosecrans's headquurt- i crs since Friday afternoon. The operator at Camp Tompkins at that , time reported fighting going on at Ganley Bridge,but gave no purticulan, and immediate ly afterward ibe wires were broken The Kanawha River line whs working to ( Camp Ewgart, 12 miles a>cve Cbaneslon on Saturday, but nothing was ktiowu.of ibe uffair at Gauley. A lioai left Charleston at 7 o'clock on Sua day morning, and arrived at Gallipoiis lst night, but she brings no information in rtgard to the affair. MAJtrsvit.i.K, Ky., Monday, Nov. 4, 1*61. A gentleman of this ci'y, from Ganley Bridge, on Saturday evening, reports thai Gen. Floyd had cut a road around the hill where Geu. Rotoralis was encamped, ami was shell in if his camp.

No Unionists had been killed when he left. Cin'cissati. Monday, Nov. 4. 1861. , The Commercial lias advices Irom General Rosecran's headquarters to Saturday evening. On Friday morning at 8 o'clock the enemy opened fire wi h two guns at points opposiie Gauley Ferry and Camp Tompkins, and a noisy tire of muxketry Their object was evidently , to cut off the supply trains. They succeeded in sinking a lerry boat on Gauley R.ver, and threw about 40 shells into the camp ol the 1 ith Ohio regiment. Not one of our uieo was kill ed, and only about half a dozen wuuuded. A uiHjority ol the shells thrown t y the enemy did not explode, aud their musketry was wild and irregular. The ferry-boat which had been sunk by the enemy's shot on Friday last was raised that night, and communication across the river re stored. There was no firing on Saturday on either side. The position of the forces ou Saturday even ing was as follows : The Rebels were in possession of the left or west bank of New River ; Geii. Scheuk's | brigade a few utiles above tlm junction of Gnu- | ley and New Rivers, ou the east side of New River ; Geu Cox's brigade and Gen. Rose craus near the junction of the river, and (-- tweeu theui, and Gcu Beninim, on I lie right bank ot the river Floyd's lorce is believed about 7.00 U. It was believed in camp that Gen. SchenckV \ 1 and Gen. Benliain's Brigades would be thrown I ! across the river above aud below Floyd and catch then). The loss of telegraphic communication was occasioned by an alarm of the operator, who. i when Lite firing opened, sent a hasty dispatch | to Clarksburg, announcing a battle, aml th.en commenced to move ins office up the Gauley. j lie was two or three miles up the river when i he was overtaken by orders from Geu Rose craus to return; ami wliile returning, his wagou was driven over a precipice and the apparatus destroyed. Floyd's demonstration was rather agreeable to Gen Rosecraus iban otherwise. Gen. Iv*; craus was certain ihai he could hold his own, ; and expected to hag hu assailants Col Sedgwick ot the 2d Kentucky Regiment is reported wounded in the knee by a sp:iuler of a shell. CAPTURE OF BREATONBURG Q BY THE NATIONAL FORCES. Maysvillk, Ky.. Monday, Nov. 4. IStH, A messenger, in this evening, reports that Gen. Nelson took Brestonhurgr, Saturday morning, without resistance. Williams fell j back about six miles, where it was expected he would make a stand. TIIURLOW WEED AND ARCHBISHOP HUGHES GOING TO EUROPE Albany, Monday, Nov. 4,1801. Thnrlow Weed and Arcbbßliop Hughes are j about to sail 'or Europe, probably by the steamer Africa, which sails on Wednesday, to endeavor to counteract the operations of the Southern Commissioners, ami prevent the re cognition of the Southern Co .federai-y by France or England Gen. Scott, it is under stood, goes in the same steamer. THE NAVAL EXPEDITION. Washington, NOV. 3, TSFIT. It is believed at the Navy Department that the fleet did not feel tlie brunt of the s'onn, tut may have been caught in the edge of it j It seems to have been most violent inland I The fleet could not, as reported, have been ' struck by the gale off Cape Hatterus on ! Wednesday, since it wus not felt at Fortress Monroe, only 00 miles distant, until 2 o'clock ! on Friday afternoon. The report that llie lies I tination of the expedition is Charleston is j founded opon no sufficient ground. There ' might be a conjunction of circu nstances,which would lead Capt Dupont to land at Bull's i Bay, but that place is less likely to be his pomt of attack than several others. TIIE COMMAND OF THE POTOMAC ARMY. Gen. MeClellan wi'l, fcr the present, retain command of the army of the Potomac, the : headquarters of which will remain where they | have been. The headquarters of the army will i be at, the office of the Adjutant General,where ! the details of business will be attended to ■ Matters were so arranged when Gen Scott ; ! was in the field in Mexico If an exigency | arises demanding the presence of another Ma- i j jor-General of the army, Gen. Ilalieck will prooahly be the man. A BRITISH SCHOONER CHASED BY A PRIVATEER. The British schooner Dash/way, of Halifax, reports that on the 20th in>t, in Crooked Island passage, was chased hy a hermaphrodite brig, which continued in pursuit for two days, when she hauled Iter wind and stood to the north and eastward. She carried four staysails and royal, looked very rakish, and was point ed black, and sailtd very fa-t.
