seven fine gunboats of his squadron and three
transports. The Benton, his flagship, got oppo
site the upper battery, leading the line of ves—
sels, before the rebels opened fire. The rebels
t h en eantinned firing from eleven P. M. until
two M. upon each succeeding vessel as it
passed. The only damage done us was the firing
o f the Henry Clay, one of the transports, and
also a shot through the Benton's hulL The
Henry Clay was fired by the enemy's shell. All
bands were saved. The pilot remained until the
flames forced him to leave. Our loss was but
one man killed and two or three wounded. The
rebel fire was far less effective than was antici
pated. They burned two or three houses in the
lova, as our squadron was passing, to light the
river so as to enable their artillerists to get good
view of our steamers as they went down within
range of their guns. On reaching Warrenton,
Admiral Porter bombarded that village; with
sbat effect is not known.
A despatch from Memphis, Via Cairo, to St.
Louis ou Thursday, says the rebel batteries at
warreuton, below Vicksburg, were destroyed by
our gunboats, and that the fleet was lying off
Carthage, on the 17th. Gen. Grant had then his
headquarters there. Steamers are reported to be
running from Warrenton to Young's Point. The

THE SKIRMISHING AT SUFFOLK
WA9III2IOTON, Tuesday, April 21
The following official dispatch relative to the
recent fighting near Suffolk, Vs., has been re
ceived at the Read Quarters of the Army :
FOILTREVI MOBBOB, April 19.
Zti. Gen. Halteek, General in- Mel,
1 deem it due to the forces at Suffolk briefly
to notice their gallant conduct during the last
six days. On Tuesday General Peck's right was
attacktd, and the enemy's advance was gallantly
met by Col. Poster's light troops, driving him
back to the line of his pickets. Anderson's (reb
el) division engaged at the same time, on the
water front, with our gunboats and batteries, and
suffered materially. On Wednesday a rebel bat
tery of 2-pounder rifled guns was effectually
silenced, and the attack on the Smith Briggs, an
armed quartermaster's boat, wee repulsed. Re—
peated attempts have been made on our liner,
but have all been foiled. The storming of the
enemy's battery near the west branch of the
Nansemmid, by Gen. Getty, and the gunboats
under Limit. Ammo, of the navy, and capture of
six guns and two hundred prisoners, closes the
operations of six days against the enemy's large
force very satisfactorily.
(Signed) Jona A. Dix, Major General.
Suffolk is where the Berks County Regiment
of drafted Militia is stationed. Our men, how—
ever, do not appear to have been engagdd in any
of the late skirmishes. As far as was known at
last accounts, the killed and wounded in the va
rious skirmishes amounted to only seventy—
thirteen killed and fifty-seven wounded. The
only Pennsylvanian among them, in the Beta we
have seen, is Zachariah Wilt, f Co. A, 116th,

committed by the officer in case the fleeing offend

misdemeanor or crime short of felony, Hate ruling
was very fair. The evidence showed that Morris
who deserted from the camp uear Tenallytown
(sear Washington). moue to this city in June last,
and that Capt. E. L. Smith, of whose company
Morris was a Corporal, wrote to Capt. Muhlen
berg, who then was Recruiting officer here and
acting as Provost Marshal, that it was very desi
rable that Morris should be arrested, as also sev
eral others, but that it was of more importance to
him to have Morris 'arrested, than all others to
gether- Capt. Mublenberg communicated this to
Lyon, and authorized him to mahe the arrest, and
defined the authority which Lyon had, to be, that
he should use all possible peaceable means to ar
rest deserters, but if he could not succeed with
peaceable means, then to use force, to the extent
of shooting. Capt. Muhlenberg was ordered away
from here just after Morris had then recently been.
arrested and Ito took him under guard of Lyon
along to Harrisburg,where he was delivered to and
re.ceipted for by the military authorities. lint
he succeeded in making his escape from there and
came hack to Reading. Capt. Smith was after
wards in October, ISO 2, sent by the commanding
Uetteral to Reading for the purpose of arresting
deserters, and communicated with Lyon, who had
information that Morris was lurking about in die
guise, and he delegated to Lyon the same authori
ty as Capt. Muhlenberg had done. Morris was
under that authority repeatedly arrested, but as
often as he was taken to Harrisburg be returned.
Several witnesses testified to Morris' astonishing
powers of Lidomotion at a former occasion, where
they and Lyon chased him for a long time and fi
nally captured him in a negro house, near the
place where he was subsequently killed, in which"
he had entered after crossing streets, alleys, lots,
and jumping fences, and where ho claimed pro
tection from the negroes, stating ;bat he was a
drover,who had his cattle near the new depot, and
was just going to feed it. Captain Smith said
amongst other things that when he first started
with his company from here to Indianapolis, Mor
ris used to leave the ears at way stations and run
after the train which he always reached, even
though it was under a pretty good start, and also
that Morris was a shrewd athletic, and, as he was
informed, a dangerous fellow, and well built.
Finally, Major Henry S. Kupp was appointed
Provost Marshal of this county, and he appointed
Lyon to a place under him for the purpose of ar
resting deserters, and Morris was arrested early
in December again and committed to jail.. He
then applied for a habeas corpus, was remanded
into custody and sent to Harrisburg,but returned.
A provost guard of 12 men, a Lieut. and Sergt.,
bad been in the meanwhile detailed to Mej. Kupp
from,llarriAlittrg, at his request. Brandt, one of
the defendants, a young man of about 18, was
one of that guard. The day before Christmas
Major Rupp received information that Morris was
about again, and that he had' boasted that the
Provost guard was not strong enough to arrest
hiln, and Major Kupp then gave Lyon orders to
arrest him, but to be careful, and if be could not
arrest him, then to bring his body. On Christmas
day Major Kupp was out of' town, when about
dinner time information was brought to the office
of the whereabouts of Morris, and Captain Hoffe
dits, the Deputy Marshal, ordered Lyon to take
along four men of the guard and arrest Morris by
peaceable means if he could, hut that be should
bring bins dead or alive. It was testified to, that
on the Sunday before Christmas Lyon was at the
Keystone House and talking to some one about
the arrests he and the guard had made, said, they
had done well, and that he rood the written au
thority he held from Major Kupp, and stated that
when a deserter would run be had a right to and
would fire on hint. The guard stated that on
that Christmas day, when Lyon came into their
room and told them they would go and arrest
Morrie, they loaded their guns, having heard of
the desperate character of the man to be arrested,
and another witness testified that on the way up •
Penn street Lyon declared that if Morris ran he
would shoot him. Lyon and the guard of 4 men
marched out sth street and there met a discharged
soldier, whom they stopped and asked for his die
charge, and he stating that lie had seen Morris
only five minutes ago, woe taken along to show to
the guard the way. Morris was concealed in a
house kept by one Libb Ruth and one Raehel
Nichols, in Cedar alley, between 9th and 9th
streets, near Walnut street. Lyon and two of the
guard went into Cedar alley in front of the hous
es, and Brandt and the discharged soldier and
another guard in the lots in the rear of the houses
in Cedar alley. Pram Cedar alley there is a small
alley leading to Walnut street, and other alleys
and open lots leading towards 9th and Elm streets.
Parts of the lute are built upon and fenced,though
some of the fences were eery dilapidated. Lyon
knocked at a door neat to Ruth's, but after a con
versation of rather a lively manner with one of
the witnesses in the ease, an elderly lady, with a
go od deal of tongue, came to the right house,
knocked there, and was informed that Morris was
not there, but the guard insisted on searching the
house. A couple of men were down stairs, and
Lyon on inquiry by the guard declared that neith
er of them was Morris. The two guards started
for up stairs to search there, and when on the
steps they heard a racket up stars and saw a win
den f towards Cedar alley open, when one of the
guards hallooed, he jumped out of the window.
They searched both rooms and returned down
stairs, and they and Lyon, who had remained
down stairs, rushed out of the house. Whether
Lyon or they were lirst out was not clearly ex
plained. But the guard stated that they heard
while up stairs the words, "Bern he comes," or
"There ho goes." The witnesses who testified on
the point of Morris' jumping out of the window,
all agreed, that ho cute° down on his hands and
feet, stood himself up and looking around, set off
on a run. Most of them tleclarettit was a slow
run, one a double quick, which be, on reflection,
qualified by declaring it to have been a double
quick which a man would run who had a heavy
knapsack on all day, and others, a pretty south
run, and such a run which a man would run
who knew somebody was after him. In the
meanwhile Brandt had eettle to cedar alley, either
from the rear of the lot and through the little
pa , sago alley between the houses on Cedar alley
as the witnesses for the defence stated, or he was
then already in Cedar alley, as the Commonwealth
alleged, and followed on a run alter Morris to the
alley leading from cedar alley to Walnut street.
Lyon was said to have then stood at the trent door
of Ruth's house, and as the witnesses for the Com
monwealth alleged, said "Shoot guard, shoot
him," whereupon the shot felt, or as some of the
witnesses for defence stated some one had ordered
Morris in a loud voice twice or three times to halt,
—one witness said that Morris bad been commend
to halt before the shot fell three times,when Lyon
said "If he don't stop, shoot him guard," where
upon another halt having been commanded, and
Morris running on, the shut fell. One of the wit
nesses for the Commonwealth stated also, that he
was positive that be had heard some one oommarid
brat before the shot fell. The distance from Ruth's
house to the corner of the alley leading into Walnut
street is about twenty feet, and Morris had ran MI
feet in that alley when his career was out short by
the fatal bullet. • All the guards were then rush
ing to the spot and Morris' body carried into
Ruth's house, sad Oars tbs. guard left Mtn, sad
Brandt and Lyon afterwards delivered themselves
up to the civil authorities.
It was argued on behalf of the Commonwealth
that Morris might have been caught by peaceable
or raising a hue and cry, and if that was
So, that then Lyon and Brandt had no right to
shoot him, and that, desertion being no felony,
they had at all events no right to shoot Morris,
whether he was fleeing or not.
The defence argued that repeated commends to
belt were given by the guard; that it was Morris'
duty to stop; that he could not have been caught
by peaceable means, as he woe fleet of foot, a con
siderable runner, had a goad start in advance of
the soldier, knew all the alleys and facilities of
escape, was among his friends and concealers,
whilst Brandt was a stranger; and that Brandt as
well as Lyon did no more than their duty in
respectively ordering the firing and firing the shot;
and that, at all events Brandt was justifiable, as
ho had done no more than to obey the order of his
The Court, after laying down the law as before
stated, told the jury, that the only thing to deter
mine was whether every peaceable means to arrest
Morris bad been exhausted; that Lyon, under his
orders and oath, wee bound to arrest Morrie but
that it must appear that the shooting was necessary
to secure his arrest, and whether Lyon had done
all that a prudentmintious officer would do in good
faith, or whether he had not done so, but had acted
rather in a rash or reckless manner, or moved by
a bad motive, had ordered the firing when it
was not necessary; and that Brandt, it he in a
spirit of military obedieuce, without any bad mo
tive, and without any other power to seize the
deserter, fired the shot, he ought to be acquitted.
