little-curious about that time. I assure you,
to hear the shells bursting oak necking the
fences and stones all around us. At last
we saw Easton's battery coming down the
pike at a full run and taking a position a
bout twenty yards to the' left of us. Gen.
Ord ordered us forward into the thicket.
We were glad enorgh to get out of the
way of the shells; but we were run right
in the range of their musketry. Our regi•

and were in the hottest part of the fight.

awful sights in the fracas, three rebels were

113" We learn from the Paris Pruse (by
the Niagara) that Jefferson Davis is engag
ed preparing a memorandum to be ad
dressed to all Europe.• This document
treats of the question of secession, declares
that the war undertaken by' the Northern
States will not lead to any result, and that
the separation is already, a legal fact. With
a view, however, to put an end to a much
lamented contest. and tirevent great tuts
fortunes, the memorandum will propose an
amicable separation or basis to be decided
in common—the Southern States being
teady to agree to any arrangement compat
ible with the dignity of all parties."
This protect is another indication of the
desperate straits to which the leaders of
the rebellion are being reduced. They ev
idently feel that if there is no intervention
on the iirt of foreign nations to. sustain
them, their infamous schemes will prove
unsuccessful. All the refugees from - the
South agree in theatatement that the peo
ple of the rebellious States are subjected to
ruinous embarrassments and sufferings,and
that the planters will be hopelessly ruined

Destructila Fire at Washington.

WASUINGTON. DEC. 28 --About 7 o'clock
to-night, a fire broke out in the Government
stables near the War Department. where
they had about 2000 horses. and barnesa
for moat of them. The stables consisted
of ten separate sheds, 32 feet wide and a
bout 400 feet long. in each of which were
some 200 horses. sod so rapidly did the
fire spread, that it was impossible to save
all the horses.
A large number of men were soon on
the ground, and commenced liberating the
horses, many of them refused to leave the
burning sheds, and some rushed back, and
plunging into the flames, laid down to die.
Those released gatheredln droves and gal

"Whatever, therefore, may be said by any
in the way of exception to the — extreme
terms of the demand made by the British
Government in the case of the Trent, it is
at least just to admit that the case has been
so adjusted by the Government as to sub

neutral rights against the isrumptions
heretofore asserted by England, but non
repudiated by that power in common with
France and the United States. The law

ter reciting the capture of these parties to

it as an outrage on the British flag, and

under which the arrest was effected, ac
cording to the report or ma naval officers
and thus developing the inaccuracies and
omissions of the British statements, pro
ceeds to analyze the facts and principles of
public law involved in the case, and ar
rives at the conclusion that the neglect of
Capt. Wilkes, partly involuntary as it was
on his part, to bring the Trent in fur trial
as a lawful prize, may be justly held - to
operate as a forfeiture of the belligerent

So far as regards the apology asked by
the British Governaient, none is tendered.,
because a simple statement of the facts
