Early one morning, Captain Arm-strong, 'he ino.ldssb ing, headlong and gallant fellow of our corps, was detached with twelve men, on a irconnoitering expedition, and during the afternoon of the same day. Capt Eggleaton was sent out with a party of eighteen in a different direction. Towards evening the parties met; and having formed a junction ....

Wo thiew ourselves on the ground, under the broad canopy of heaven, as was our usual custom, not being possessed of tents and slpet soundly .having first fasten ed the bridles of our horses to our hands. At lireak of day, having aroused ourselves from slecp.while some were idly lounging about, and others standing chatting, in groups, a woman, wrapped in a red cloak, and mount cd on horseback, passed by. Some of the men, for want of bctte.r employment, kept following her with their oyes as she rode along. Presently s,he turned a road whtr.li intersected the one that ran in front of our position, and led to tho British camp. It was skirted by high fences on either side that terminated at the wood we were. As thoy continued watching her progress' their eyes fel suddenly upon a party of sixty British dragoons, who were approaching her from their camp, on a foraging oxpedi tion. They rode up to her, and during their conversation, her pointing frequent! towards the spot where we were stationed, soon conivneed us that she had discovered -iir nosilion and was imparling her kaowl edge to them. Well aware of what was likely to ensue, wo all, without waiting for orders, mounted our horses, and sat in silent expectation. 'What shall wo do?' said Eggleslon, turning to Armstrong, 'Charge! charge them!' replied the latter, nnd at the -flame time mounting his horse called out twelve men follow me,' and dashed down the road towards them at full speed, without ever stopping to weigh the hazard of an cnrounter,wilh a foice so vastly his superior The enemy seeing two bodies of cavalry ,ssjp from the road, drew up his line face i,?g us, and sat firmly, pistol in hand, wait rg our approach. As Armstrong rode up they fired al his patty, but so hurridly that not a shot took effect, and before they had time to draw their sabres, he burst in upon Ihem like a thunder clap, overturning whole rinks, and cutting them down in every di ,ection, , Eggleston now joined, and the slaughter became terrible, for they trusling.in the first instance, that the fire of their pistols would either check or repulse us, had made no at tempt to draw their swords, until we came hand to hand with them. Such attempt vhen made was in the most cases rendered of no avail by the ardor snd gallantry of our men, who unhorsed them beforo the sabre had left its sheath, or dealt a blow in defenec of its wearer. Resistance was now cl)3ng cd to flight, aad while pressing their flying flank, in the chase, we were forced to cut down many who had ceased to resist, as a regard to our own safely, and theii niiweri cal strength, foibude their being left un harmed & capable of doing us injury in the rear. Hemmed in on both sidew by furices. ni'ri mounted on sorry horses, this last re course availed them so little, that hut one of the whole parly escaped capture or death and so hotly did we pursue him thatt'.io out r line of sentinels was passed, and one of lliem captured, before we reined in. The ilteachment captured, formed part of the army,ur.der tho command of Lord Rnwden, General Lee uas mentioned the circumstance in Ins Memoir, but is inrorr6ci in the tnin or details, He says Eggleston was detach ed willi 3P dragoons, to join Armstrong, who had been previously sent out with t party and that 46 only of the enemies dra groons were taken. The fact is we num hered in pit but thirty men, anil captured or hilled GO of the enemy, including the sen linel (Japt. kgglcston was thanked iu general orders; but the glory of the achieve merit belongs manifestly to Armstrong.

I'he miners on Tuesday, having discovered that tl'cre was sonic-fire-damp in the breast ing they were about to work, allowed i small boy to fiie it.lhinkinj that theio would be but a slight explosion but it appears that there was a hole or offset in a working adjacent to thespot, in which a large body of the inflamable matter had collected and when the lamp was applied, this mass of air exploded and rushed out over then bodies.

Mr. Clapp, of iYew Orleans, reronl'.y preached t net mon on the religious character of Dr. Frank lin, From the closing paragraph of a short report wo copy the following:'' Il is both faho noil unphi'oHopbical to churye an man with a want of piety, because he dif fers from u: in his mode of manifesting his faith in God, Ills actions are the best lest of his opinions. As eloquent a moral may bo incu.catcd by tho self-denying virtue ol ihe hero, as by the teachings of Paul Such virtue can only be the result of a right culture ofchnstain duly, and of an humble reliance on the devino assistance; for it is manifest the human ambition is lo short sighted to attain this eminence. It would be well for our country if tho example of these extraordinary men were more felt and ac knowledged if their voices were still present to our view it the same spirit which actuated their lives wero felt in tit t' breast of the statesman of our own day, and ihe sneering tune of this 'ago of reason' were changed for a feeling of veneration of ihe wise and good, who adorn the pages of our hiMory.
