THE LATEST WAR NEWS.
There is no intelligence of the Burnside ex
pedition, now fifteen days out Th' Xnrfulk
Day Book of Saturday contains uot a word
about it. The. Xewbem Progress of Thursday
last says, iu reference to its reported presence
in Pamlico Sound, " we were Dot sure that
" there is uow, or ever has beeu a Yaukee
" gunboat over the swash at llatteras." The
reports are all to the effect that nothing has
beeo seen of the fleet in the sound. Greut
anxiety prevails amuug the rebels to kuow
where the expedition is to strike. . They will
learn in good season, aud at a point where
they least expect to hear from it. There is a
report from rebel sources that the steamer
Louisiana, of the expedition, had been beached
aud turned to save her from the rebels, but
no particulars are given.
k rom The Charleston Mtrtnry we learn
that I nion forces, under Gen. Sherman, now
hold that position on the main lsnd bordering
on the Coosaw River and stretching from
Chrisholms to the Ferry, aud having mounted
guns on the deserted rebel batteries,and other
wise strengthened the position. Chrisholms is
on the Bull River, about two miles from the
Coosaw and seven or eight from Port Royal
Secent intelligence leads to the belief that
most of the rebel soldiers directly in front of
Washington are housed between Bull Run aud
.Manassas ; a sufficient forge to mau the forts
at Centreville ouly being left there. It is be
lieved that a large portion of the aro>y of the
Potomac is distrionted at various points in
A irginia.ftpon the lines of railroads-converging
at Manassas. By this plan they can be more
easily subsisted, aud at the same time be rap
idly transported to a point of danger.
The Expidition from Cape Girardeau to
Benton and Bloomfield, Missouri, captured a
Lieutenant, Colonel, eleven other officers, and
08 privates, with a quantity of arms, a number
of horses, and equipments. Most of the Rebel
offieers were surprised aud captured in a ball
The Charleston Mercury gives the particulars
of the capture of Cedar Keys, Florida, by our
forces, and adds that three schoouers aod
five fishiDg-smacks were taken. The schoon
ers were loaded with lumber and turpentine.
Col. Reynolds, the Government agent at
Port Royal to superintend the gathering,
ginning aud transportation of cotton on the
sea.islands, arrived in Washingtou on Sooday
nnd had a long interview with the Secretary
of the Treasury. He has already secured
more than $1,000,000 worth of cottou. The
two or three thousand negroes just freed are
industrious and orderly, and do their woik
well aud cheerfully. They need clothing aud
medical attend luce. He desires to take back
with him an ample supply of the former, and
several physicians who shall devote themselves
to these workmen.
Each new details, which reaches ns, of the
!ato battle near Somerset, which has been
styled the battle of Spring Mill,furnishes addi
tional evidence of the completeness of our
victory, and the gallautry of oar troops. Jn
wresting a victory from superior uumbers, un
der disadvantageous circumstances, they dis
played a degree of hardihood and courage
which has rarely been equalled in any age or
country. The rebel General Zollicoffer met
his death io a contest with Colonel Fry, of the
Fourth Kentucky Regiment, when the com
batants were but a few yards distant from
Au attack is daily anticipated on General
McCall's division by the rebel forces encamp
ed at Centreville. Small rebel recounoitering
parties are daily seen within three or four
miles of our lines. The Leesburg turnpike is
closely watched by General MeCall, who is
always prepared far battle at any hoar of the
day or night.
It is stated that the term of enlistment of
the,whole rebel force encamped at Centreville,
which is estimated at sixty thousand men, will
expire on the first of February next. This in
formation is derived from deserters.
MEXICO. —The combined Euro pearl
Spanish, French, and English—is in occupy
tion of \ era Cruz, but are singularly situated.
They receive scarc?ly any food or forage from
the interior, and are particularly in want of
vegetables. The Mexicans, for once perceiv
ing the advantages of union, have allowed
their political quarrels to subside, and are
heartily acting together for their country.—
They actually are bestigiug Vera Cruz, land
ward, and their attack on it is anticipated by
the allied iuvadcrs. This condition of affairs
is considered as unsatisfactory as unexpected.
A TRAITOR DEAD. —On Tuesday-last we re

Providence has removed one of its most assid

Ihe proposition of imposing a tax of

o&.Tbe most important intelligence brought
| from Port Royal by the steamship Atlnntu,,
i which arrived at New York on Thursday, re
i lates to the new expedition fitting out at that
! point, under the direction of Commodore Du-
pont and General Sherman. Its destination
|is supposed to be Savannah. The utmost se
; crecy, however, rs observed by our officers in
regard to the details of this movement. It is
known that a successful survey of a new wa
ter-course has been made, and that by means
of this channel (which, for obvious reasons, we
do not name) Savaunah can be reached with
out passing Fort Pulaski. Our troops are
now engaged in the work "of removing logs,
hulks, and other obstructions, including piles,
which the rebels had placed in the stream, un
der the impression that they had thereby se
cured themselves from attack in that direction.
At last accounts this work was rapidly pro
gressing, aud it was thought when the Atlantic
left Port Royal that the work had been ac
complished. The rebels had, however, taken
the precaution to erect a battery the head
of the water course, and information had been
received to the effect that this battery, as well
as the defences of the other approaches to
Savannah, has been strengthened. But it is
believed that their position could v not be so
fortified as to prevent the advance of the ex
pedition.—lu fact, a report has already been
received of the evacuation of Fort Polaski by
the rebels —that position having become use
les3. Before the departure of the Atlantic,
three of the guuboats (such, at least, was the
understanding at Hilton llead\ bad passed
beyond the line of Fort Polaski. The depth
of water through the courses wa9 stated at fif
There were evidence at Hilton Head of
the advance.—All the floats and iauuches, of
which there were great numbers, were col
lected or collecting, aud dreparatious were
making to transport troops. Two of the reg
iments at Hilton, with whose officers some of
the passengers on the Vrv.derbilt had been in
ctmmunication, had received not only march
ing orders, but orders to move, and they were
preparing to go, towards what point was of
course uot stated. The understanding was
general among the officers that the movement
would be made speedily—certainly this week;
and that the force to be left at Hilton Head
would not exceed one or two regiment-. The
forces at Hilton Head thus at commaud was
ten to twelve thousand men.
Rut it was doubtful if auy attenip whatever
would be made to advance on the maiuland,
out of the range of the fire of the gunboats
inasmuch as the forces under General Sherman
would be unequal to the work of maintaining
itself, object of the contemplated expe
dition would be accomplished with the occu
pation of Savannah. The eity, however, de
fended by nearly twenty-five thousand rebels,
would not, it was confidently asserted, be at
tacked, unless our gunboats succeeded in reach
ing it, which there was little doubt they would
be able to do .
If a movement against Savannah shall not
at once be made, and the reconnoissance and
preliminary operation prove, like the occupa
tion of Tybee Island, to have been made sim
ply for the purpose of diversion, the real pre
parations may result in another movement
more dengerons, and possibly more important,
that would be the capture of Savaunah.
In his speech delivered in the House
of Representatives,on the 23th inst. Mr. Dawes
of Massachusetts, presented some startling
facts respecting the government contracts for

I given out to private individuals to the amount
of thirty-seven million of dollars, and that the
contractors cannot furnish the first musket un

I have as yet no machinery. He stated further,
that returns from the War Department showed
! that the price gaid for muskets to these gun

upon the House.

LANDON offered a resolution instructing the
Fiuance Committee to prepare a bill imposing
a tax on tonnage and passengers upon all
railroads and canal companies in the State, to
meet the extraordinary demands upon the
Treasury. After some djscussiou the resolu
tion was modified so as to require the Commit

that body not having the power to originate
revenue measures. The Commissioners ap
pointed by the Governor to revise the revenue
laws of the State, have been in consultation
with the fiuancial committees of both Houses,

that the union of Bedford and Somerset by

THE COPT OK THE APRIL REBELLION IN* BAL
TIMORE.—In April last, it will be recollected,
when troops were called for by the President
for the defense of Washington, the Secession
ists of Maryland, who contemplated carrying
the State out of tbe Union, attempted to incite
a rising in Baltimore to obstruct the passage
of Union troops through that city. The City
Council adopted an ordinance appropriating
$500,000 for the defense of the city, which
defence was to consist in preventing Union
| troops from proceeding, byway of Baltimore,
to the defense of Washington, and that city
j falling in the hands of the rebels, Maryland
[ would fall an easy prey to Secession There
J was, however, another route to Washington,
which was used. Washington was saved, and
! the Maryland Secessionists were dofeated in
their designs. The official reports, just made
1 to the City Council, however, show that dnr

Particulars of the Battle of Mill Spring.
CINCINNATI, Jan. 24,1861.
This inoruiug's papers contain full accounts
of the battle at Mill Spring. It was a fair,
open batlio. The rebels fought well,and were
overcome only by superior fighting OH our side.
Aecordihgto the rebel occounts, their forced
consisted of ten infantry regiments, three bat
teries, and 6ome cavalry—altogether about
ten thousand men. They fought in the bush
whacking style, from ravines and behind trees,
bushes and rocks.
The brum of the battle devolved on the
Fourth Kentucky, Second Minnesota, Ninth
Ohio, and Tenth Indiana. For nearly two
hours the roar of musketry was kept up
Shortly after 11 o'clock Colonel Has=kins suc
ceeded in flanking the enemy on the extreme
right, when the Ninth Ohio and Second Min
nesota charged with the bayonet with tri
umphant yells, which broke the rebel ranks,
ami the rout began.
They Hed pelimell to their camp,strewing the
road with mnskets, blankets, overcoats, and
knapsacks, and abandoned two guu3 and
ZollicofTer was shot through the heart, at
the head of his staff, by C*l. Fry, of the
Fourth Kentucky. It appears that ZollicofTer
lost his way in the l ushes, and suddenly
emerged before Col. Fry, who was accompa
nied by some staff officers. The two parties
mistook each other for friends,and approached
within a few yards of each other, when finding
their mistake, both halted and prepared for a
One of Zollicoffer's aids shot at Col. Fry,
hut only brought his horse down. The Fed- ;
eral Colonel immediately drew his six-shooter, 1
aud brought Zoliicolfer from his saddle at the
first fire. The rebel staff deserted their chief's
body, which was taken to Somerset the day i
after the battle.
An East Tennessean, writing to the Com
mercial, says : " All the credit and honor of !
this battle is due to the Tenth Indiana and f
Ninth Ohio, Fourth Kentucky, and Second
Minuesota Regiments, lor they did all the
fightiug single-handed, with tbe exception of
what support they received from the artillery. I
They all fought nobly,and never wavered from
their fixed determination to gain the victory." j
The combatants were so near each other at 1
oue time that the powder burned their faces 1
ou the discharge of each other's pieces.
THF. CAPTURE OK ZOI.I.ICOKKER'S BARGES.
The Cincinnati Com vitrei d says : The tel
egraph anuouuees that the rebels, in their
haste to get on the souths: le of the Cumber
land, and put that river between them and
Thomas' victorious army, neglected to destroy
the means by which they were enabled to make
their escape, and that the fteamer and nine
barges, used by Zollicoffer, have fallen into the
Federals' hands. This is more important than
will appear at first sight, as it not only sup
plies General Thomas at once with the means
of throwing as much force as he desires on the
south bank of the Cumberland, but will enable
him :o move down in tlie directiou of Nash
viile. aud almost into the city, if it is deemed
advisable, without " waiting for transporta
tion.'' The Cumberland has uot been fortified
by the rebels, above that city, so that virtual
ly the defeat of Zollicoffer, and the capture of
his boats, gives General Thomas command of
the river to that point.
The bodies of Gen. Zollicoffer and Baillie
Peyton. Jr., are in process of embalming at
RETORT FROM THE CINCINNATI TAKERS.
It appears that the rebels knew that they
were to be attacked on Monday, and must
fight or retreat, hence their temerity in leaving
their intrenchments aud attackiug us in the
open field. Gen. Boyle's brigade had cut off
their river communication with Nashville, aud
threatened their rear ; Geu. Thomas was ad
viyicing on the Columbia road, while General
Schoepff had possession of Hudson's Ford,and
was to advance from Somerset, thus hemming
them in on the west and north. To avoid be
ing surrounded and starved out, and rather
than be disgraced by retreating, they marched
aguiust Gen. Thomas, supposing him to be
only 1,500 strong, being ignorant of his re-cn
forccmcnt by tbe arrival of two Tennessee and
the Twelfth Kentucky Regiments The attack
was made under the immediate command of
Mujor-Geucral Crittenden, who with eight reg
iments marched from his intrenchments on
Saturday night. Through the night the
mounted pickets of the enemy skirmished with
ours. In the morning the brunt of the attack
was borne by the Tenth Indiana, who were
subsequently sustained gallantly by the Fourth
Kentucky, Col. Fry, the Second Minnesota,
and the Ninth Ohio regimcut, Col. McCook.
The rebels fought bravely for two hours, but
the death of Gen. Zollicoffer early in the ac
tion, the approach of our re enforcements, the
desperate valor of our troops already engaged,
aud the destructive effect of our artillery fire,
compelled them to retreat. Our men followed
in hot pursuit, turning the retreat into a rout.
While messengers went off to Gen. SchoepfFs
division, to notify him of the event. General
Thomas pnrsucd the foe up to his intrench
ments, and cannonaded him till nightfall.—
Meantime, Gen. Schoepff ordered out four reg
iments, and reached Fishing Creek in an hour
and a half. The water was very high and
rapid, yet, without bridge or boat, the forces
of Geu. Schoepff took to the stream, and by
the aid of a rope waded and swam across.—
Four miles more took them to the camp of
Gen. Thomas. Pushing on they passed over
the battle-field at night, and with a bare tw
hours' halt for rest, renewed their march over
the muddy roads, expecting to be iu at the
death, in the morning. But in the morning
the enemy had fled from their fortifications,
across the Cumberland, leaving arms, equip
ments, everything, not even spiking their guns.
Our troops found the enemy better provided
thau themselves with the comforts of life, and
in no respect worse off, except in the matter
of arms alone. The enemy acknowledge a loss
of three hundred, Gen. Crittenden being among
the wounded. Our loss was thirty-eight killed
aud one hundred and thirty-four wounded.
GENERAL CAMERON'S RESIGNATION. —The
President desires it to be understood that no
circumstances connected with the recent
change in the Cabinet has in any way impaired
his confidence in Gen. Cameron, or disturbed
the harmony existing between him and the
Administration. The name of Mr. Stanton
was suggested to the President by Gen. Cam
eron himself, as largely possessing the qualifi
cations fitting him for the post of Secretary
of \\ ar.and enjoying the unbounded confidence
of the commanding General. The nam's of
Mr. Holt and Gen. I)ix had been previously
mentioned, and the appointment of the former
was tor a short, time regarded as determined
upon.— Washington lie publico.
Affairs at Richmond.
TTie indications from Richmond combining
to prove that loyalty has yet an abiding place
there, despite the long night of persi cution
and sorrow it has endured, I lie signs
are auspicious- for tlie "reliel" of /> iihmov/L, a
, phrase which signifies something else than
when applied by the renegades there to our
uwu favored city. Beaten down by a long
continued military tyranny, it yet patiently
awaits the time when the bright vision of the
Stars and Stripes will flash upon the view, to
carry despair and trembling to the hearts of
! the infamous despots w ' \ ur.der false pretexts-,
J have for the tim; lc.dou under foot their
rights. As usual, the declarations from that
quarter, hy those who have had |ersonal op
portunities to verify the facts, are that the
" hone and sinew," the great middie class, is
true to the Uuion. In Manchester, on the
other side of the river from Richmond, we
understand the Confederate flag has never been
permitted to flout the loyalty of the place ;
whilst, on. the other baud, only the threat of
"shelling" the p'ace from the Richmond side
has sufficed to prevent the flag of the L uiou
from being givcu to the breeze.
These are cheering and well authenticated
facts, and whilst they inspirit the pat
riotic everywhere to renewed efforts in the glo
rious cause of the Union, because those efforts
roust carry political regeneration to those suf
fering from tyranny, they should make the
people of Maryland more thankful that they
have been spared that humiliation and suffering
i brought upon the citizens of a neighboring
! State by the madness of its rulers.
From indications which gather strength with
I every revolution of the suu iu the heavens it
can nat he long now befora the Davises and
Letchers aud Benjamins will liud Richmond
i " too hot to hold them." If the movements
against Norfolk should prove successful, it opens
and uncovers a short route to the capital of
i Virginia, such as the gunboat practice at Rort
' Royal aud Hatteras will kuow well how to
take advautage of at short notice. With Nash
ville, at about the same period, not exactly
eligible as a place for the next migration of
the Richmond troop, it ia hard to say where
it will alight uext whilst awaiting " rccogui
; tion" by England.
! Altogether the prospects of the Confeder
al ates look anything elst than promising at the
present time. With the clouds darkening over
their front, from the seaboard to Richmond
, especially, the newspapers there no longer
scrujJe to attack those who have played so i
conspicuous a part in their affairs ; and wheth- j
er they are getting ready to accept of an am
nesty on the part of the Government, or are I
sincerely desirous of correcting the abuses at
rebel headquarters, the result is the same—
to betray the weakness of the cause.
We look, then, for decisive results in Vir
ginia speedily. We hope ere long to hear of
the flight of the vultures at Richmond to an
other locality shortly, and the Union men for
ever relieved of the curse that has so heavily
weighed them down.— Baltimore American.
The President on Catching Negroes.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 19, 1861.
At tlie leave-taking ot Gen. Jas. 11. Lane
at the White House, 011 Friday, r. M , a con
versation occurred so remarkable and import
ant in its scope, and so evidently designed for
the public eye, that I feel at liberty to record
it for the readers of the Tribune.
There were present at the time President
Jjincoin, Gen. Lane, Senator Pomeroy, Com
missioner Dole, a few members of the House,
and a group of oflieers and clerks from the
different departments of Government.
On turning to leave, Gen. Lane said :
" Well, Mr. Lincolu, you kuow uiy way ; I
shall pursue tlie policy with which 1 began,
and somebody will get hurt."
To which the President replied :
" Yes, General, i understand you. And
the only difference between you aud me is, that
you are willing to surrender fugitives to loyal
owners in case they are willing to return ;
while Ido not believe the United States (7 or
eminent has any right to give them vp in any
case. Aud it had, the People would not per
mit ns to exercise it.
Gen. Lane rejoined :
" That remark, Mr. President, makes me
happier than anything that has transpired since
the commencement of the war. And if you
will announce that as the active policy of the
Admiuiscration, and let us win one victory on
it, you will be the most popular man ever on
this continent 1"
Mr. Lincoln returned a nod of earnest an
knowledginent.— Correspondent of the A r . I*.
THE EFFECT. —We are reliably informed that
when the news that permission had been grant
ed by the United States authorities for Brit
ish troops to cross our territory became known
in Canada, it produced an electrical and pro
found effect upon the public miud of the most
gratifying character. It seemed to dispel the
war frown instantly ; and well informed gen
tlemen predict that the effect iu England will,
if possible, be still more happy. We trust it
will prove so ;we expect it will. It is no use
to paw dirt or shake horus at Johu Bull or any
other variety of the Anglo Saxon race, unless
you desire fight. Generous confidence and mag
uauimity appeal to the better side of his na
ture, and he is as unwilling to be outdone in
that direction as the other. This little cour
tesy may turn the whole current of feeliug be
tween the two countries into a better channel,
aud give it a more natural rational tone. God
