CAMP 9THPA. CAVALRY, EAST TENS..
,
I , TRAR Moser CRF,HR STATION, Jan.-3d, 1864
Capt. Hancock, Co. Bof our regiment, is
about to start home on leave of absence.
This affords me an opportunity, in the entire
absence of mail faisilities, of dropping you a
line. Your letter from Indianapolis was re
ceived in Sparta before we crossed the moun
tains.
.We - have now been three weeks in East
Tennessee, having passed through Knoxville
one week after the termination of the siege.—
Cur division, under the command of General
Elliott, marched iren - tediately to Strawberry
Plains. After a few days delay, we marched
to New Market, nine miles northeast. Hera.
the two brigades separated, the second advan- ;
cing on Mossy Creek, and the first (ours) upon.;
Dandridge. To reach this place we left at 4
e. m., the morning of the 23d, and arrived at
about ten. After stopping to breakfast, we
marched on in pursuit ,of a brigade of rebel
cavalry said to be encarnped in the neighbor?
hood. About three miles north of Dandridge
we struck their pickets, and pushed on so
fast as almost to stampede the whole brigade:
The enemy retired 'immediately to a strong
position in a woods, between two wooded hills,
and near the French Broad. The flth Ponies!
was thrown linavard to feel the enemy, and' it
pelseible, smoke him out. The Ist East Ten ,
nessee held the right; and the 2d Michigan
the left, while two of our four pieces of artil;
lery Were holding forth from a hill in front.—
Matters appeared to be progressing finely,
when, apprehensive of a snare, our com
mander, Col. Campbell, of the gd Michigan;
recalled the advance. The 9th had not rem
gained the pesitien of the advanced artil
lery, when the lead horses, servants and
stragglers caine rushing forward in the utmoSt
haste and confusion. A rapid and heavy firing
was heard in the rear. The Bth Penna. being
this time the nearest to the scene of disaster,
Was ordered to charge immediately. Col,
Jar
dap gallantly led the charge with about *-
third of the regiment, all that he could get up
in time. The troops behaved extremely well,
and their gallant efforts were repaid by an im
mediate repulse of the rebels, and the rescue,
at the last moment, of two of our guns which
they had just seized. At the very commence
ment, of , the charge, lit. Theepiltis J. Mount 4,
companyE, was shot in the face,
and alinost instantly killed.. We drove the
enemy for some distance, when the Colo
commanding, fearing the return of the brigade XXXVITIth Congress---First
'of rebels, repulsed at the beginning of the at-,
dm, - Ordered the withdrawal of the 9th, and' SENATE.

On motion of Mr. Pendleton, the farther

If such was the object, the friends of the
measure must be considered as the rankest
disunionists, because to exclude any one who
had aided in any manner in the existing rev
olution, was to exclude these States from rep
resentation in Congress, and no other persons
could properly represent the Constitution to
show that a Senator was not an officer under
the United States Government, but as a repre
sentative of a State in a body, constituting r.
co-ordinate branch of the Government, which
body was part of the Government, and not r.
body under the Government. He cited Madi
son on the nature and power of our Govern
ment, and contended that the act of second
July and the proposed order, regarded the
Government as purely national and not fede
ral, while he denied, claiming that the Gov
ernment was chiefly federal and only in part
national.
'bitterest - tag from Baltimore.
The Baltimore American of this morning, in
alluding to the addresses of Messrs. Hicks
and Swann before the Maryland Legislature
on Friday evening, says:
"Senator Hicks spoke very briefly, but
found opportunity to declare himself in favor
of prompt action by the State in reference to
Emancipation. There is, he declares, no
practical benefit in temporising over a subject
which has already been disposed of virtually
by current events.
"Mr. Swann was more distinct and emphatic
in his declaration. He declared immediate
emancipation the only remedy; avowed the
intention of himself and friends to push the
steed of emancipation with whip and spur un
til every valley and every hill-top shs.ll feel
the tramp of his glorious mission, and the
whole State of Maryland, from its centre to its
Circumference, shall be awakened to an edict
of universal emancipation." These are good
words, and if they be well supported by acts ;
then, as Mr. Swann said, "we are truly a
united party."
Col. Wm. S. Fish who, until recently, has
been. acting as Military Provost Marshal in
this city, was yesterday arrested by order of
the War Department. It is understood that
he will be sent to Washington this morning.
