THE LATEST WAR NEWS.
The news from the army of the Potomac,
though brief, is significant. Our advance is
driving the Rebels back, a* portion of Gen
Sumner's division forcing a large body of them
tb retreat across the Rappahannock, from
Warrenton Junction, on Friday, Tbongh our
troops shelled them as they crossed, the latter
succeeded in burning the bridge before we
could prevent it. In their haste, the enemy
left a number of cars, loaded with graio and
Other forage, which, with a lieoteuant and
fonr privates, fell into our bands. Not a man
was hurt: cn our side. The telegraph reports
that we might have cnt the Rebels terribly,
while they were carrying off their sick and
wouh&d, but that, io mercy, our victorious
soldiers stayed their bauds. Shipping Point
was occapied by ns on Friday, the Rebels
having left. The reported attack by Rebel
cavalry on Fairfax Court Honse is not con
firmed. We have intelligence of important
movements in Virginia, but the public interest
will not permit its publication at present.
Van Born and Price, according to the tele
graph, have gathered their shattered forces,
and retreated entirely across the Boston Moun
tains. They are now at Van Buren and Fort
Smijth, 35,000 strong, receiving supplies from
Memphis and Little Rock, via the Arkansas
Rker. ft ia probable that Van Dorn will act
in conjunction with Beauregard at Corinth, to
hold* the line of the.Cotton States. Re-enforce
ments were slowly joining the Rebels. The
Union army of Gen. Curtis had fallen back to
Keitsville, to secure forage, and were camped
at the head of Cross Hollow,where it is plenty.
From North Carolina |we have Newbern
dates to the 26th inst. and Hatteras Inlet to
the 28tb. The Nashville was reported to be
safe at anchor at Beaufort. Another and later
dispatch says that Beaufort had been taken by
Gen. Burnside, and that no property what
ever had been burned. Fort Macon had
neither been blown np nor abandoned, bat
was still hold by the Rebels, from 300 to 500
strong ; the place was invested, however, and
tbo garrison must soon surrender. It is a
little singular that we have not yet received
any official report of the escape of the Nash
ville, aod it is possible, therefore, that the
story of her escape, like the evacuation and
destruction of Fort Macon, may be a canard.
The expedition to Washington consisted of
1,000 men. They landed without opposition,
aod uailed the Stars and Stripes to a tree in
front of the Court-House. After holding the
place one day our troops retarued.
The notrious brigand Quantrell continues his
forays in Missouri. Ou the 26th ult. he at
tacked a detachment of militia at Warrens
burg, but was beaten off with a loss of 9 killed
and 17 wounded. He renewed the attack on
the town the following day, with what success
was not kaown.
A despatch from Island No. 10 says that
after a tail the bombardment was renewed
vigorously on Friday The Cairo correspon
dent of the Ri. Louis Republican states that
heavy firing was heard from the Island on that
day. The Rebels had opened other new bat
teries mounting,it was supposed, I*2B pounders,
and were seen pushing forward new means of
defense. They seemed to have no idea of
evacuating but were daily getting more cannon
in position. Four new Rebel gun boats, partly
iron-clad,havc'appeared below Poiut Pleasant;
but it is not supposed they will be able to pass
Gen. Pope's batteries.
Gen. Buell has assumed command f our
forces in Mississippi, and at the latest advices
was within fifteen miles of Beauregard, at
Corinth. The Rebel Morgan's cavalry had
captored another train on the Louisville aud
Nashville Railroad, taking Col. Cureen Pcpe
of Kentucky aud several ITuiou officers prison

On the night of the 26th inet., a force of

THE WINCHESTER FIGHT. —A telegram from
Winchester informs us that a committee of
citizens, Mayor and Provost Marshal have
buried all the rebel dead, which have been
brought to town ; eigthty five were buried on
the battle field and one hundred and twenty
three on the roadside, between Winchester
aod Strasburg. Two hundred and thirty five
prisoners have been sent to Baltimore. Sev
eral are 6till at Winchester, and others on
their way hither. A mssseuger from Stras
burg states that General Johnston was to join
General Jackson at Strasburg, bat he subse
quently sent hira word that he could not join
him till Monday night.
Their combined forces would been
twenty-fire or thirty thousand. They were
arranging and inteuding to keep Banks from
moving to another point, but Jackson being
impressed with the belief that our troops had
nearly all left, hazarded his fatal advance
On Wednesday, oar pickets went six miles
beyond Strasburg. The fences, trees aud
ground along the route show the terrible ef
fect of our artillery on the retreating enemy.
Gen. Shields's arm has been reset and he is
comfortable, and will probably be able to re
same active duties in two weeks. The follow
ing dispatch was telegraphed to Gen. Shields,
on Wednesday :

mand, the Department return thanks.
(Signed) EDWIN M. STANTON,
Secretary of War.
COLONEL CORCORAN.— A mystery seems to
hang about the whereabouts and condition of
Col. Corcoran, against whom the rebels seem
1 to have a peculiar spite. * Col. Wood and Col.
Cogswell both are represented as saying that
they had conversation with prisoners from
Charleston, who said they bad not seen him for
several days previous to their qnitting that
place, and inferred therefrom that he had beeD
either removed to another prison or sent furth
er South. Though it is well understood that
the President has made special exertions to
procore the release of Col. Corcoran, yet it is
equally well understood that the rebel author
ities will consent to give him op only condition
that Smith the condemned privateer or private,
shall be surrendered to them.
THE RELEASE OF PRISONERS STOPAEB. —The
Secretary of War has stopped the release on
parole of the prisoners taken at Fort Donel
son. It is known that an agreement for the
exchange of prisoners was made some weeks
ago under the direction of the Secretary of
War by General Wool with General Cobb,
by which all of our prisoners were to be deliv
ered to us the next day under a*flag of truce
at Crauey Island. A boat was Jsent to re
ceive them, but no prisoners were brought from
Norfolk. The same was repeated for two days
without success. Explanations were demand
ed by General Wool, but none were furnished.
Pending this breach of faith by the rebels, all
release or exchange will be refased by the
SENATORIAL. —The terms of the following
named members of the United States Senate
will expire with the present Congress, on the
4th of March next:—
James Dixon (Rep.,) Connecticut.
Milton S Latbam (Opp.,) California.
James A. Bayard (Opp.,) Delaware.

WHO ARE ENTITLED TO PENSIONS. —The At
torney General of the United States has de
cided that all disabled soldiers of the three
years of war men are entitled to invalid pen
sions under the act of July 22, 1862 ; and
that all disabled three months' soldiers called
into the service under the President's procla
mation of April 15, 1861, are entitled to pen
sions under the acts of 1802 and 1816. He
also decides that there is no law giving pen
sions to widows and orphans of deceased sol
diers of the present war.
The Bedford Inquirer tells a good
story as to how the Breckenridge Democracy
iii that region conducted the late spring elec
tion. Tbey made the is?ne and charged that
the Republican party was responsible tor the
scarcity of coffee, and that Mr. Liucoln was to
blame because the substitution of rye was
made necessary on account of the high prico of
coffee. Grand old arguments, these, for a
party that still claims to be unequalled in
every attribute of fairness and justice. It
should be styled the old rye party. Is not

A special dispatch to the Republican, dated
near Maud No. 10, evening of the 26th, 6ays
that only three she lis were thrown by the mor
tars to-day, to which no response was made
by the rebels. This morning Col. Buford sent
a reconnoiteriog party of twenty men of the
Tweoty-Seveuth Illinois down the Missouri
shore. They arrested three prominent resi
dents, who report that 2,000 negroes are em
ployed on the island and at the batteries aloug
the shore ; that sixty-five rebel troops, includ
ing two Lieutenants and forty negroes, have
been killed by our shells ; that the upper shore
battery is abaDdoued, but the others are being
strengthened ; that the enemy is 15,000 strong,*
and that their encampmeut has been moved
autirely out of range of onr guus. The rebels
are confident of success, and say they have a
good road to Trenton and other points, by
which they can escape whenever they choose.
They have plenty of provisions. Three rebel
6teamers, loaded with troops, were seen watch
iug the shore to prevent communication from
here. The total cumber of tbe enemy's trans

ST. LOUIS, March 30,1802.
The army correspondent of The Republican
writing under date of Cairo, March 29, says
the firing on Friday at Island No. 10 was
quite heavy, the Rebels opening from a new
battery, mounted, it is supposed, with 128
pounders. The euemy could be seen cutting
away trees and rapidly pushing forward other
means of defense. They seem to have no idea
of evacuating at present.and are daily getting
more cannon in position.
Word reached the fleet last night that
four Rebel gunboats partly clad with railroad
iron appeared below Point Pleasant, but as
Gen. Pope's batteries extend in an almost
continuous line for fitteen miles, it is not be

CAIRO, Saturday, March 29,1562.
After a lull the bombardment at Island No.
10 was renewed vigorously yesterday.
The Rebels appear to have received and
and put in position new guns of longer range.
FROM GEN. BURNSIDE'S DIVISION.
BALTIMORE, March 30,1862.
The rebels burned the bridge on the railroad
between Newborn and Beaufort, but it was in
progress of repair, and the road would soou be
iu operation between the two places.
So far as our informants know, all of whom
came from Newbern, and had not been at
Beaufort, there was no destruction of property
at the latter place, and a large majority of the
citizens remained quietly in their homes on the
appreach of the Union forces.
All the rebel soldiers in the vicinity shut
themselves up iu Fort Macon. Their numbers
were variously represented by citizens of Bean
fort at from three to six hundred men. The
fort was said to be but slightly provisioned,
and it was not believed it could hold out more
than a week. Its ultimate capture is of course
a matter of certainty.
Gen Burnside was at Beaufort. Perfect
order reigned at Newbern, and a number of
citizens had returned to the place. General
Foster was Military Governor of the city.—
The reb Is were believed to be in strong force
toward Kingston, thirty five mihs on the road
to Goldsborough, and their scouts freqneully
appeared iu the viciuity tf Newbern.
The expedition to Washington was success
ful. It consisted of about one thousand men,
with an escort of gunboats. Two companies
of the Massachusetts 22d landed and took the
place. The Stars and Stripes were nailed to
a tree before the Court House, and left there.
The citizens received the invaders without
any apparent excitement or apprehension,
some few expressing Union sentiments, while
the mass had nothing to say either way.—
After holding the place one day, and gathering
all the iuformatirn they could, the expedition
returned to Newbern.
THE ADVANCE IN VIRGINIA.
MANASSAS, March 29,1862.
At the skirmish at Rappabanuock Bridge,
last evening, Capt. Clark's battery of the 4th
Artillery shelled the rebels with remarkable
rapidity aud precision.
The enemy left, in their haste, a number of
