From our Morning Edition
The Rebels at Thouroughfare Gap.
ARRIVAL OF REBEL PRISONERS•
01 :) PVTO , 111 11•71 ;11 ill nil
The latest news from the front is that
the rebels still hold Thoroughfare Gap,
with a small picket force. General Bayerd's
cavalry was attacked yesterday afternoon at
Aldie. He encamped last night two miles east
of that place, from which fact it is inferred he
repulsed the rebel forces.
The gunboat Yankee, arrived this morning,
bringing up from various vessels of the flotilla,
a number of prisoners and the schooner George
Washington, which was captured in Pohick
creek on Thursday night by the Yankee.
William Wood, superintendent of the old
capitol prison, who went south not long since
with the rebel citizens who had been prisoners
in his charge to exchange, returned to Wash
ington to-day, but without the loyal men held
prisoners by rebels, he was expected to bring
back with him. It was however understood
that his mission was completely successful and
that those he went after will soon follow him
hither. The order for their release having
been given before he left Richmond.
Captain William Jay, of New York, who was
recently relieved from duty on the Staff of Ma
jor General Wool, has . been assigned to duty on
the Staff of Major General Morrell, command
ing division of Porter's corps of the army of the
Potomac. Acting Assistant Surgeon Hildreth
has been ordered to the steamer Ino.
FROM THE SOUTH.
DESTRUCTION OF THE BALTIMORE AND
ndian Troubles in Florida
We are indebted to a friend at Fortress Mon
roe for a copy of the Richmond Dispatch o f
Thursday, the 30th ult., from which we extract
the following interesting items of news.:
CAFTIIBE OF A TAIL
°Beaumon t Oct. 29.—Tidings reached here
this evening of the capture, in Bull's Bay, of
the steamship Anglia, laden with valuable
army stores, and bound to Charleston.
When the Anglia left Nassau news had been
received that the Yankees are working night
and day on iron -clads, with a view of attacking
THE ESCAPED TORUS
Some days since the escape of eleven bridge
burners from Atlanta was stated. Four have
been re-captured and three -killed by soldier
while they were trying to pass them.
THE FEVER AT WILMINGTON
In Wilmington, N. C.,
on Saturday, there
were thirty-five cases of fever and four deaths,
and on Saturday,twelve,new cases and twelve
The Journal of the 22d ult., says:
If, as we sincerely trust, the main headway
of the pestilence has been checked, we can
begin to survey the ground, and arrive at some
conclusion as to the dimensions of the calamity.
We heard it estimated this morning - that the
number of cases would not vary far froni six
teen hundred, nor the number of deaths far
trom four hundred, which would exhibit a
rate of mortality equal to twenty-five per cent.
of all those taken. But it must be borne in
mind that the disease existed here, causing an
unusual mortality, sometime before it was pro
nounced yellow fever,
and that it was not
declared epidemic, that any regular reports of
the number of cases was made by our physi
cians. These considerations induce us to be
lieve that the actual 'facts will exceed any
detail of them that can be made from positive
knowledge or official reports.
VIZ BATTLE AT CORINTH
A correspondent of the Mobile Register, (N'lm
porte,) in a letter dated Holly Springs, 14th
nit., says :
The report of the battle .which I sent you
from Tupelo was substantially correct, and there
are but few changes to be made in its state
ments. The affair resulted disastrously to our
arms, and was an unfortunate blunder which
never should have been: committed. I tele

I have learned from both General Price and
General Lovell' that they were utterly opposed
to the advance on Corinth, and offered every
objection to it, advising an advance on Bolivar
to crush the enemy's force at that point, cut
off their source of supplies and reinforcements
from Corinth, and then make an effort to ma
nceuvra the enemy out of their entrenchmenta
to an open and equal field. All opposition
proved useless, and Van Dom, with a deter
mined madness, equal to that of Charles X,
advanced his willing army into the muderous
trap that had been set for them. He blinded
himself to the forceof the enemy, and persisted,
even after the engagement had occurred, and
our forces been repulsed, that the enemy did
not outnumber his own forces. It is an tin•
pleasant duty to have to place Gen. Van Dorn
in this light before the public, but it is a duty
which we are called upon to perform at his ex

due, and free Generals Lovell and Price m
any blame which ' may improperly have
attached to them.
From a conversation with the latter I am
folly convinced that he wholly disapproved of
the attack as it was made, and desired to ad

himself and General Lovell were overruled by
the will of the Commanding General who

to the President, requesting him to place some

characterized by sobriety and sense—to take
command of the fine army which Gen. Van

the President states that Lieut. Gen. Peinberton

. The Texas papers bring further accounts of
the enemy's attack on Galveston, on the 4th
inst. The town was in no condition to make a
succes-ful defence, but the single gun in Fort
Point kept up a spirited engagement with the
Federal gunboat till the gun was dismounted.
The gun was then spiked, the Fort set on fire
and abandoned. Interviews were subsequently
held with the enemy, when four days were al

John Van Buren telegraphed in response to
an invitation to speak at a Democratic) meeting
at Rome, New York : "I will attend meeting
at Rome on Friday at 2 o'clock, if not in Fort
Lafayette." ' This is a professional trick for
drawing an audience. John has seen how the
mob rushes to see notorious criminals, and he
judges that it will rush to see one who ism ad

gave the cue for applause for some very dull
declarations, by affecting that he was in Immi
