We have dates from New Orleans to
the 4th inst.. furnishing details of the ex
pedition'under command of Gen. Weitzel.
Our forces encountered the enemy in con
siderable strength at a place called Lab
adieville, and defeated them after a brisk
fight, and a brilliant display of general
ship on the part •of Gen. Weitzel.
Two hundred of the enemy were killed,
wounded and taken prisoners, and one
piece of artillery was captured. The Reb
els.were Pursued in the direction of Ber
wiik's Bay, where Gov. Moore was sup
paid to di. Gen. Butler had paid a
visit of courtesy to the French war-steam

civilities took place on the occasion.

that on Friday morning, While the 2d Di
vision of the 9th Corps, under Gen. Stet.-
gilt, were passing from Sulphur Springs
to Fayetteville, at a point about four miles
from the latter place, a Rebel battery
opened upon the column from an eleva
tion on the opposite bank of the river.—
The attack was sudden, and rapid firing
ensued from a 20-pound gun and several
of lighter caliber. Capt. Derek's Penn
sylvania battery, which was passing at
the time, was placed in position, and re
plied to the Rebels. The artillery duel
lasted for more than two hours, when the
Rebels withdrew, and the column contin
ued its watch to Fayetteville.

_Charles Ingersoll, a rabid southern

following language at the recent demo

"To what shall we turn our success ?
Shall it be to put down the Federal Gov' -

I say that if we are true to ourselves; if
the citizens of the North are true to'them
selves, they will turn their attention to
one point above all others, and that is the
rights of the sovereign States [applause]

sonally, I am fot a strong central govern

without a central force. * * This
Union prospered well until the Abolition
lets came into power, who are now striving
to make it a military tyranny. What will
be the result of the present condition of
affairs in this country is hard to say.
Either we must conquer the South, or we
must make peace with them. _lime con.
quer the South, and annex their fam
ished territories to ours, there is an end
to this Union, because the Union no longer
exists as a Union of sovereign States.
[Applause.] In case Mr. Lincoln fails
in his war policy, then there is anarchy.
What is to save us from either of these
dilemmas? The States themselves only
can save us. If the States do not save
us, we are gone. Well, we should there

Ingersoll denies baying used the ex
press language here set down, but does
not exactly state what be did say.

as one who was opposed to the liberties
of America, and was afterwards rewarded

MR. EDITOR :—The above Institution,
as your readers are well aware, is situated
in ono of the most inviting localities in
this portion of the State. As one stands
upon the eminence upon which the Acad
emy is situated, he sees the village in its
quietness lying at his feet, while around
it hills gently rise until the grand, old
forest shuts in the scone, as if to guard
It from the storms and tumults of the
outer world. It is within such a seques
tered spot , that the Ulysses Academy
opens its portals to those who long to
quaff refreshing draughts from the peren
nial fountains of Knowledge. Here the
disciples of Minerva may listen to her
teachings, and while they listen feel their
souls enkindle with high and noble pur
poses and heaven-born aspirations.
The present term of this Institution
has been one of unusual prosperity and
it has suffered less from the pressure of
the"times" than its most sanguine friends
could have expected. This success is
doubtless attributable to the ability with
which it has been conducted.
The Literary Society connected with
the Institution held a public session in
the Chapel on Friday evening last. The
exercises of the evening were of a highly
interesting character. The pieces rebell
ed were so happily varied that the atten
tion of the audience Was retained, until a
late hour. We might notice a number of
the students individually who were: espe
cially deserving commendation for their
finished productions and natural delivery,
hit we forbear. The musical part of the
exercises was of a high order, especially
the anthem, "See what 'manner of love,"
which was sung as the opening piece of
the'evening ; also a solo "There's a good
time coming," and one or two quartettes,
called fort the general applause. We
would commend this Institution to the
attention of all who are interested in the
cause of education, as it affords the youth
of this county the facilitieki for the acquire.
went of a thorough and finished education.

The Harper's Ferry Loss.
The surrender of Harper's Ferry in
September, involved the loss of 14,000
Union Soldiers, (equil to our gains et
Fort Donelson,) and also of vast amounts
of the very arms and ammunition with
which the Rebels helped slay our men at
Antietam ! More than that—it gave the
Rebels the best open gate way from the
trap in "which they had got themselves by
their invasion of Maryland. In every
respect, than, it was the worst, most con
temptible, and most ruinous disaster, to
us, of the whole War. - The Government
so regarded it, and accordingly appointed
a Commission of eminent military men, of
both parties, to investigate the whole af
fair. This Court of Inquiry was com•
posed as follows :
Maj.-Gen. D. Hunter, U. S. A. of
Maj.-Gen. Geo. Cadwallader, U. S. A.
Brig.-Gen. C. C. Augur, U. S. A. of
Major Don.Piatt, A. A. G. of Vols.
Capt. F. Ball, A. D. C. of Vols.
Col. Jos. Holt, Judge-Advocate Gen.
These gentlemen met, patiently and
fearlessly probed the whole grevious
wound, and have just made a lengthy
The material facts are as follows : Col.
Miles was in command at Harperts Ferry.
Gen. White was present from Sept. 12
till the surrender, but did not_ assume
command. Col. Ford took command of
Maryland Eights Sept. 5. Gen. M'Clel
land left Washington for Rockville Sept.
7, most of hie forces having preceded him.
The enemy attacked Maryland flights
on the morning 'of Sept. 13. The 126th
New York (losing their Colonel) broke
and fled, and the breastwork on the hill
was lost. Col. Miles was on Maryland
Heights that evening for some hours con
sulting with Col. Ford. He left between
11 and 12 o'clock, without directly order
ing Col. Ford to evacuate the Rights, but
with instructions to spike his guns if com
pelled to abandon. About 2 o'clock, Col.
Ford abandoned the Rights. The enemy
did not occupy them, and the next day
Col. I)'Utassy sent over four companies,
who brought away four guns and a wag
onload of amunition.•
After the evacuation of Maryland
Heights, Col. Miles sent word to Gen.
M'Clellan, then at Frederick City, that
unless reenforced, he could not hold out
48 hours. Gen. M'Clellan thereupon dis
patched a messenger to Gen. Franklin,
who was engaged with the enemy at
Crampton's Gap, wholly unable to give
the needed assistance, or to give it in
time. Gen. M'Cler.an appears to have
made no other effort to relieve the be
The enemy attacked Harper's Ferry
itself on the morning of the 15th, and at
8, A. M., the surrender was agreed on,
Col. Miles representing to the brigade
commanders whom he consulted that his
ammunition was nearly exhausted, and
they concurring in decision to surrender.
The Commission acquit Gen. White,
col. D'Utassy, and Col. Trimble of all
blame for the surrender, and praise the
capacity and courage of the former.—
They find that Col. Ford was given, by,
Col. Miles, discretionary power to aban
don Maryland Heights, but that the ex
ercise of this discretion was premature;
that he conducted the defence with no
ability, and that his exhibition of lank of
capacity was such as to disqualify him for
Col. Miles is convicted of incapacity
and criminal neglect especially, in neg
lecting to fortify and hold Maryland
heights, the key of the position, and the
evidence stated in the report concerning
his communications with the Rebels is
such as to raise strong suspicions of
Gen. Wool is gravely censured for
keeping so incapable an officer as . Col.
Miles in command.
Concerning Gen. M'Clellan the evi
dence adduced in the report, and the
opinion expressed by the Commission, are
most direct and damaging. The General
in-Chief testifies that Gen. M'Clellan, af
ter receiving orders to drive the enemy
from Maryland, marched on an average
of only six miles a day in pursuit, and
that in his opinion, he both could and
should have relieved and protected Har
per's Ferry; and in this opinion the Com
mission fully conour.
There will be no complaint, against this
report, of whitewashing. Its array of
facts, and its logical conclusions upon
them, are impregnable. The country will
gratefully recognized the courage and just
severity with which the Commission,while
awarding due censure to inferior officers,
has declared that the shame of the sur
render of Harper's Ferry rest chiefly on
Gen. M'Clellan. For, if he had moved
with decent swiftness, he would have
raised the siege, or would have taken the
enemy in detail, with the Potomac divid
ing his forces.
