THE ADJOURNMENT OF CONGRESS.
it is the current belief that Congress will ad
lourn sine die by next Monday, the business be•
fore it being already reduced to only a few
prominent measures and other matters to be
disposed of without much controversy.
The Committee of Ways and Means will have
disposed of the bills originating therein by the
reporting of the remaining one making addi
tional appropriations, small in amount, for cer
taiu civil expenses.
The Tariff bill, with Senate amendments,

Un Confiscation bill is pending in joint

Ito soldier's pension and the naval appro-

The Navy Department has received dee
patella, dated U. S. steam sloop Brooklyn, off
Vicksburg, June 22.
The following is from Captain Craven to

I left Baton Rogue on my way up the river at
one p. m., of that day. On the fourteenth at
p. m., sent the matins guard and a party of
Seamen, in all about one hundred men, under
charge of Lieutenant Lowrey, on shore at Bay

graph apparatus and wires, and with orders '
bforat the authorities that we were on the river
`or the purpose of enforcing the laws of our
common country, and protecting its loyal citi

At about eleven o'clock In the morning,
Lieut, Lowrey returned with his party to the
ehipi, having thoroughly accomplished his
work exc..p tin securing the telegraph appa
ratus, which had been removed but a few
miuute, before he landed. About half a mile
of wito was cut and brought, aboard, and the
vitriol and batteries destroyed.
The people ashore appeared to be peaceably
dhposed, were very civil, and dli not make any
letuontitration. The Mayor and Olkinf Magis

W e Would not hold him responsible for the

shore, Lieutenant Lowrey, with the flag of our

principal streets, and passed on about
in the morning to Natchez.

TRANSPORTS FIRED' UPON.

Arrival of lien. Barnside's Flag Boat.
The steamer Qeorgeauna arrived at six
o'clock this morning, having on board upwards
of two hundred sick, wounded, furloughed and
discharged soldiers, and an immense freight.
The only item of interest that we could
gather was, that on Monday the transport
steamer Juniata, with the 111th Pennsylvania
regiment on bo ard,i while ascending James
river, was fired into by a rebel battery. Three
shots struck the steamer, wounding several of
the soldiers, but as far as we could learn, kill
ing none. One of the shots struck her wheel
house, wounding four men.
It is reported that the rebels have flying ar
tillery constantly moving along James river,
but heretofore have been prevented from doing
any damage by the gunboats.

Gen. Stoneman is highly spoken of for his

The Elm City, from Harrison's Landing, has
arrived at Fortress Monroe with five hundred
disabled soldiers on board, mostly sick, who
will be taken to New York. She lays at anchor
in the Rhoads, and not a boat can be obtained
to go out to her and get a list of names of the
soldiers. The officers of transports have be
come so hardened that they will not allow one
of their small boats to do the smallest favor,
even for humanity's sake, and consequently
we will no doubt have to abandon the idea of
obtaining a list from the Elm City. There are
many wounded on board. Five have died
since leaving Harrison's Landing.
The flag of truce boat which left here yes
terday morning, returned to-day, having been
up as far as White House. They report all
quiet, having seen nothing of the Rebels on
their passage up. They brought down about
fifty contrabands, and a few stragglers who had!
unfortunately been left behind at the time of
the evacuation. They also brought down eleven
trunks, marked " Wilmer," which were taken
from Wilmer, a clergyman of Philadel
phia, about six months ago, who was charged
with having with him "contraband" articles,
which he was conveying to the enemy. They
were brought here to-day from West Point.
General Buriaside's flag boat arrived here at
two o'clock, and cast anchor in the Roads.
The Battle of Tuesday as Desoribed
by the Biel:mond. Examiner•
TERRIBLE SLAUGHTER OF THE REBEL
From the Richmond Examiner of Friday, July 4.
" The battle of Tuesday was perhaps the
fiercest and most sanguinary of the series of
bloody conflicts that bave signalized each of
the last seven days. Are have already adverted
to the part played In the action by Gen. Jack
son and others, but, as yet, have made little
mention of the operations upon the occasion of
Gen. Magruder and the troops under his com
mand. We now propose to give such particu
lars as we have obtained on the field attar the
Early on Tuesday morning the enemy, from
the position to which he had been driven the
night before, continued his retreat in a south
easterly direction towards his gunboats on
James river. At eight o'clock, A. Pd., Ma
gruder commenced the pursuit, advancing cau
tiously, but steadily, and shelling the forrests
and swamps in front as he progressed. This
method of advance was kept up ,throughout
the morning and until four o'clock, P. M.,
without coming up with the enemy. But be
tween four and five o'clock our troops reached
a large open field, a mile long and three
quarters in width, on the farm of Dr. Carter.
The enemy were discovered strongly entrench
ed in a dense forest on the other side of this
field. Their artillery, of about fifty pieces,
could be plainly seen bristling on their freshly
constructed earthworks. At ten minutes be
fore five o'clock P. M., General Magruder or
dered his men to charge across the field and
drive the enemy from their position. Gal
lantly they sprang to the encounter, rushing
into the field at a full run. Instantly trou t th e
line of the enemy's breastworks a murderous
fire of grape, and canister were hurled into
their ranks, with the most terrible effect.
HARRISBURG, PA., WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 9, 1862
Officers and men went down byhundreds,
but yet, undaunted and unwavering, our line
dashed on until two-thirds of the distance
across the field was accomplished. Here the
carnage from the withering fire of the enemy's
combined artillery mid musketry was dreadful.
Our line wavered a moment and fell back to
the cover of the woods. Twice again the effort
to carry the position was renewed, but each
time with the same results. Night, at length,
rendered a further attempt injudicious, and the
fight until ten o'clock was kept up by the ar
tillery of both sides. To add to the horrors,
if not the dangers of the battle, the enemy's ---
