Waterhouse's battery, and also two Ohio bat

Thousands of our soldiers had taken refuge
under the bank of the river, and utterly refused
to fight ; in fact, they could not, as the officers
and men were mixed in inextricable confusion.
The army at this time seemed utterly defeated.

ROBBERY AT THE DEPOT.—Mayor Kepner this

named Thomas Heaton, of Loveland, Ohio,
stating that while passing through this •ity

in the cars, he was robbed at the depot of a
carpet•sack containing a quantity of wearing
apparel and a number of letters from the Secre

to him as special agent. He gives a minute

be gratifying to Pennsylvanians to know that
the Union gunboat Carondelet, which recently
made the gallant dash of running the blockade
by the rebel batteries at Island No. 10, on the
Mississippi, getting safely into her desired
position under a fire of forty shots, is manned
entirely by volunteers from the Pennsylvania
Reserve corps, M'Call's division. The quota
of volunteers from the division, for the gun
boat service, was sixty men, ten from each
regiment, and they left Gen. M'Call's headquar
ters on the Potomac, after inspection of the de
tachment by the General himself, on Monday
morning, the 17th of February. They are a
fine body of men, and nobly are they sustaining
the reputation of Pennsylvania. They left via
the Pennsylvania railroad, under charge of
Sergeant H. S. Fisher, Fifth regiment.
&mous °Arab* AFFAIR. - This morning,
while Senator Benson was engaged as usual in
the discharge of his arduous duties as chairman
of the Finance Committee of the Senate, be
was approached in the Senate Chamber by sev
eral individuals armed with a large bludgeon,
who, after of w Parliamentary demonstrations,
caned the Senator most handsomely. The
bludgeon, upon examination, proved to be a
fine piece of ebony, surmounted with a gold
top, elaborately carved, upon which was this
inscription :
Hon.. IssAo BENSON,
From the officers of the
Pennsylvania Senate.'
' All men are created equal."
The Honorable Senator at last accounts ex
pressed himself highly pleased with the affair,
and may we not hope his pleasure will increase
when, in returning to his constituents after
a three years campaign in defence of their
rights, he is welcomed with the hard-earned
salutation of " well done, good and faithful
Tun Doa Max.—Dogs are subject to taxation
by- the tax bill now before Congress. The
result will be the elevation of the dog standard.
The Spartans were accustomed to kill all their
chiliiren except those which were healthy and
well formed, and dog fanciers will now always
drown the whole of the litter, except they find
in it an unusually knowing specimen. When
dogs come to be such an expensive and trouble
some luxury, people will become much more
fastidious about the purity of the breed and
the value of the animal. As fur the seedy,
rough coated, 'gutter prowling, vagabond
"sports" which now infest our streets, their
race will become entirely extinct.
to provision made in the general appropriation
bill, the flag used at the funeral of Col. Wm.
G. Murray, by the joint legislative committee,
was presented at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon
to the mother of the lamented colonel. The
ceremony took place at the residence of Mrs•
Murray, at the corner of Second and Pine
streets, and was witnessed by Alderman Mag
laughlin, Mr. Perkins, Colonel M'Coy, of the
army, and two or three soldiers of the 84th
The following is Captain Brady's instruction;
also, the Speaker's letter, and the remarks of
Captain Brady on delivering the flag:
CAPT. WM. P. BEADY—Yon are selected to
deliver this flag. L. W. HALL,
Speaker of the Senate.
To Mas. Sam MURRAY—Thin flag was car
ried before the Senators and Representatives of
Pennsylvania when they followed the remains
of Colonel William G. Murray to their last
resting place.
Accept it, Madam, from the Speaker and
members of the Senate of Pennsylvania, as a
testimonial of the profound respect which they
entertain for the memory of that brave and
noble soldier whom you fondly, and can proudly
call your son. L. W. Hatt, Speaker.
Senate Chamber, Harrisburg, April 9. ,
Remarks of Capt Win. P. Brady, on present
ing the flag to Mrs. Murray:
MADAM:—Pardon the intrusion I make upon
your solitude and sorrow. I come not to cause
your deeply lacerated bosom to bleed afresh ;
but, if possible, to soothe the aching void. I
have the high honor to be the messenger from
the Speaker and Senators of Pennsylvania, to
present to you the highest emblem of the best
Government God has yet given to the world.
For this glorious emblem your brave and noble
son paid the highest estimate, and stamped it
deeper in the patriot's heart. He loved God,
his mother and his country, and as your heart
loved and cherished him when living, so will
every true American heart love his ashes and
cherish his memory. Take this for yourself
and those of your own.
Mrs. Murray received the flag with a simple
expression or thanks to the donors, and al•
though a sad memento, she doubtless appre
ciated the gift, and will cherish it as a sacred

W. Hall, Speaker of the Senate, was yesterday
made the recipient of an elegant and costly gold
watch, presented by his brother Senators as an
acknowledgment of his many good social quali
ties, and the able, dignified and imp irtial man
ner in which he has presided over their delibe
rations during the session just closed. The
presentation speech was made by Senator Cly
mer, and was responded to by Mr. Hall in a
feeling and eloquent manner. The watch was
manufactured by the American Company, at
Waltham, Mass., and is a beautiful piece of
workmanship. It bears the following inscrip
HON. LEWIS W. HALL, Speaker,
The presentation of this testimonial has about
it an attraction other than that of the mere
empty compliment which usually attaches to
gifts for public men. The recipient is a gentle
man of that high character which at once dis
pels all thought of effort on his part to win such
a particular favor ; and yet his course, official
and unofficial, was such as at once to command
respect, win confidence and create friendship.
In the Speaker's chair he was urbane, yet un
yielding in what he deemed right. On the
floor of the Senate, he was the equal of the
ablest, and the friend of the humblest Senator,
making his intercourse with Senators through
out his term of that prompt and practical
character which at once stamped him as one of
the most useful, incorruptible and indefatigable
men in that body. It was in obedience to
claims growing out of such conduct alidaccorn
plishmeiita that Senators deemed SPieaker Hall
worthy of this gift, and in response to the same
feeling, we cannot fail to commend the donors
and congratulate the recipient in the presenta
tion ceremonies.
