THE PHILIDEPHIA SIIBRIFFALTY.CABS.
The Philadelphia Sheriffalty case came up
to-day in the Stipreme Court, and was argued at
length by Jas. E. Gownan and W. L. Hirst for
Mr: Ewing, and Messrs. F. C. Brewster, Charles
Gilpin and M. B. Thayer on behalf oi
Mr. Thompson. The points made by Ewing's
counsel were that he had bben duly elected
and received his commission as Sheriff, under
the great seal of the Commonwealth ; that by
virtue of this commission, be had entered on
the dutiee of the office...and had since been ex
ercising the same; that a writ of certiorari to de
ores quarter sessions declaring Thompson eleC
ted had been sued out and the legal effect was,
that all proceedings under and by virtue of
said decree was suspended ; that all action rai
der said decree in disobedience tO said writ was
illegal ; that the commission received by Ewing
being in full force at the time that issued by
Thompson was null and void, and that he bad
therefore no just right to interfere with Ewing
in the occupation of the office • on the other
side it was Contended that the office;
upon. motion for special injunction decide on
the validity of Thompson's commission under
the great seal,of the State is regular upon its face
that Ewing's commission is null and void, inait
much as it recites as its basis a return of
votes cast under a law unconstitutional and said
Commission was issued after the petition had
been filed contesting election; that the Court
of Quarter Sessions had issued a decree dechw
ing Thompson duly elected ; that said decree,
upon the merits of iihe cane was final; Thomp
son's commiesion had been issued after Ewing
had been before the Governor and Attorney
General ; that his sureties had been justified in
open court, commission read and sworn into
office, and therefore he is as well in law as in
justice entitled to the office. The case excited
great interest. The arguments of the learned
counsel on both sides were listened to by a
large audience, including the leading members
of the bar. The Court , reserved its decision.

Refugees who have reached the United States
bark Kingfisher, on the coast of Florida, report,
that the late destruction of the extensive atone
salt works in St. Joseph . Bay,. Florida, ; on the

to the rehelA, and created" :great _ excitement
throughout Georgia and Florida.
These works havin* been the main source on
which these States relied for a supply of MO for

I have to write you of another hard 'fought
battle. Tile brigades'of Genitals Brannan and
Terry, encountered the from

Oearleston and Savannah Bailroad. They
routed the rebels from. teeir, yeition,
them Nick, pushed them across the Pocotaligo
river, the enemy destroying the bridge as they
retired, thus preventing Wither chase. - the
conteA resulted in tcviotory for our troops,
purchased, however, at a fearful-met. • t
Tne expedition whose history I am attempt
ing under many disadvantages to record had
this for its object: First, a complete reconnois
sance of Broad river, together with , its tributa
ries, the Coosawatchie, the Tulifirtny and the
Pocotaligo ; second, to test practically the ra
pidity and saftly with which a landing could
be elated ; third, to learn the strength of the
enemy on the main land guarding the railroad
between Charleston and Savannah ; fourth to
accomplish so'ninch of the destruction of the
railroad as could be done in a single day.

their exertions as we slackened ours, another
advance was made. The rebels resisted anti
bornly, but were again forced back-, and took
-up a third position at the iron bridge across the
Pocotaligo, half a mile this side the villagg.
In: this contest Colonel Chatfield, of the Sixth
Connecticat, fell, struck by a Minis ball in the
hip. Shooting to his men to go on and do is

At the bridge the rebels made another desprk
rate stand. In artillery they were much the
strongest, not less than twelve pieces playing
upon us, 'while our own artillery consisted of
but four.Parrott guns and three boat howitzers
from the Wabash, brought up by the Paul Jones.
These pieces were udder the command of Lieut.
Phsenix, ofthe flagship, and , weni most beauti , .
fully served. • The conduct of the brave tare
who manned them; i and especially of a youthft4
midshipman named Wallace, filled our soldiers
with enthusiasm. While the rebel fire mai

The enemy'at 'cfnee destroyed this structure,
tearing np the planking and pulling down the
trestle work, and placing it beyond the poet+
bility of immediate repair.
The. fight had lasted' from noon till nearly si*
o'clock . . Slowly but steadily the rebels had
been forced - back until it was now beyond our
power to 'pursue them further. The whistling
of locomotives and 'the clattering of trains,
bringing to the station close at hand fresh troops
from Charleston, were distinctly heard. Night
was hastening on. Althoigh preparations werb
made by the engineers to provide a crossing, it
was determined to leave the field.
To General Terry was given the conduct
the retreat. It waif made in most admirable
order, each regiment preserving its line an
covering itself with honor as it retired, no leso
than in the trying ordeal of the afternoon.
ileuerat Brennan and General Terry expresi
thernaelvee delighted with the conduct of the
troops. They were steady, true and brave. I
; know the troops are satisfied with their generria;
and I have yet to hear:the first word prejudicial to
the conduct of any officer upon the fund. Ow
tain Lambert, Captain Corgell and Lieutenant
Jertuaine, 01- staff, and• Captain
Bacon, Lieutenant Terry and Lieutenant James
of the, staff of General Terry, were conspicuou4
throughout the fight, but escaped unharmed.
Is heavy losses may indicate gallantry, the
palm may be - given to Colonel 'Good's noble
regiment, the Forty-seventh Penneylvania vol
uuteets. Upon this command the brunt of
battle fell. , Out of• 600 •Who went into action,
nearly 160 were killed or wounded. All of the

As the force which. your correspondent accom-;
ponied moved' toward Pbeotaligo, the steamer ;
Planter, with the above force was' deepatchedi
op 'the Coosawatehie. The Planter, together
with the gunboats Vixen and Patreon, penetra
tetnearly to the village, and landed a-portion
of their troops. The latter were just in time to
intercept strain of threoplatform and two pas

telegraphed .for, from Yachting° and were on;
their way to ; that point.. Col., Bartow opened;

from a boat howitser, and killed and:l/Outdid
from twenty-five to forty of the &me—among
them the engineer. The Planter and the
Patroon shelled the town, while a party of the
Forty eighth went ashore and destroyed the
railroad and telegraph, tearing up the track
and ties, and bringing off about a quarter of a
mile of the wire. They also , captured one pri
soner from the train. The latter was imme
diately stopped, and all steam was put on for
The arrival of heavy artillery compelled Col.
Barton to tall back to the Planter ; but by the
der , truction of bridges, as he retired, he pre
vented Its pursuit: A few of the enemy's In
fantry followed him, skulking along the woody
shore, and maintaining
. a - ceaseless racket of
musketry. They were,driven out by the Pa
troon, which fired no lees than 122 balls among
them. The only person injured ou board the
planter was Lieut. Blanding, of the Third
Rhode Island, and whose wound will undoubt
edly cause his death.

Fuller, Chief Quartermaster of the department.
for the manner in Which the troops were for
warded and dilembarked. Like expedition and
despatch have never , manifested themselves in
this vicinity. .
As I have said, we have gained a victory,
but at a fearful cost. The expedition did not
result in the material success which was hoped
for it ; but of our troops, who, crowded on
shipboard, were deprived of rest ; who march
ed the next day ten miles and fought the ene
my six hours;.who returned, _hungry, thirsty,
worn and weary, , and who to-day are busily
re-embarking, I think too much cannot be said
in praise. They have answered the most ar.
dent expectation of their commanders.
Another expedition was on the tapie, in
which troops now at Mackay's Point were to
participate. Whether the fatigues of yesterday
will delay another and more important move
ment remains for General Mitchell to decide, .
HILTON HEAD, S. C., Oct. 24.--The official - list
of the killed and wounded in the late fight
shows our loss to be less heavy than I supposed
on yesterday , when Iforwarded from Mackay's
Point a hurried estimate of our casualties. My
account of the battle was necessarily hastened,
from the fact that the Circassian was under
sailing orders; but she has been detained, and
lam able to send, you to-day a full record of
the engagement which I omitted in my despatch
The contest, rightly named, might be called
the battle of Frampton,and of Pocotaligo Bridge,
for at the former point, indicated on the minia
ture map I sent .you, the enemy made their
strongest stand, while at the latter we accom
plished the work of driving them across the
When the enemy were driven from their first
stand point, they left behind them two caissons
filled with ammunition. It was sent back to
them from the boat howitzers of the 'Wsbasb,
and proved to be our salvation at Frampton'e.
Had we been unable to avail ourselves of this
most opportune bequest of the rebels we would
undoubtedly have been compelled to retire,
inasmuch as the ammunition'of Lients. Henry
and Gittings had become exhausted, and we
were fighting some eight or nine millet distant
Priv:ite Zuick, of the First artillery,performed
a most praiseworthy act daring the engage
ment. A shell from the enemy's guns lodged
in one of our ammunition chests. At the risk
of hie life he seized and flung it away, and was
wounded by the explosion" as it fell from his
We captured seven prisoners, four of whom
were taken by a party from the Paul Jones, un
der Acting Master Ormond, before daylight.
Their horses were also bagged. They knew of
our approach, and were prepared for our advent
long before we met them. •
The Union forces were under command of
Brig. General J. M. Brannan, General Terry
being second in command. The rebels were
commanded brColonel Walker until our arrival
at Pocotaligo bridge, when General Beauregard,
who had just arrived from Charleston, com
manded the rebels in person. These facts I
learn from an Intelligent prisoner whom I met
The navy, which was represented in the fight
by Lieut. Phcenix, and Ensigns Wallace, Adams
and Pierson, with their admirable drilled gun
ners, was under command of Captain Steadman,
and rendered valuable assistance, not only in
transporting troops, but in protecting their
landing and departure.
General Terry remained on shore at Mackay's
Point until the last man had re-embarked,
when the buildings; which had been occupied
by the rebel pickets, were fired and destroyed.
One of the most useful men who accompanied
our tome was " Col." Sam. Cooley, sutler of
th,• Sixth Connecticut. He labored more than
any other one man in getting the wounded
troops aboard the transports •
