Fortrw Monrnn, 2'lth. Tlio etfamer Ma

guns were silenced. Several -breaches had
been made in 'tins walls. Tlieru was no
doubt that rcbt-ta would foou abandon it.
The monitors ero elose under the walls of
Wagner, and by uid of ehtirpshnoters, guns
of batteries were nearly cileuceS.

Thu enemy's works on tho river are reported
to bo very strong, with parapets no less

They say his command can never bo got

Lenvanwortb, 23d. Up to this morning
128 bodies were hurried nt Liureiice.
Many of them were so disfigured ns to pre
vent, recognition. (Jitir.ciu are continually
pacing between this placo und Laurence,
and their details of l he scenes that occur
red in the streets of the doomed city tiro
sickening and heiirl-rending. Thn last nc
counts we have of Quuulrell is to Saturday
night, at which time ho win being closely
pursued by Lane, whose force was constant
ly being increased by farmers who were
flocking to him with aims. It is his de
termination lo follow Q'lnntrcll into Mis
souri, and if the gatt!r is disbanded to hunt
them down like i obiter. One of their
number who was captured gave the name,
of fifty of the gang. The people of Jack
son counly, who arc well known here, and
have always been considered good Union
men, and the lust informed citizens of
Laurence, are of the opinion that Qtirtn
trell's troops me mainly composed of pa
roled prisoners of Pentberton's command
and soniu from Pricvs army, from tho fact
that they are munli sunburned Iu appear
ance from being long iu service.
New Yoik,2flh.--A special dispatch this
morning from Washington contains but lit
lie news : A Morris Island letter, of lSlh.
to tin1 Ilcxiltl, states that thu uppearaiiee
of tho gorge wall of Sumter is not like
that presented by Fort Pulaski on the
evening of the lirs't duys fire. From thirty
to forty large holes could be counted on
the face of tliu works. Tint baricade.s of
brick covering thu magazines and sand
traverses have been H-ricusly damaged.
Three days of such work will bring down
Sumter or tho head of its defenders.
Fortress Monroe. 24th. Richmond
Whiff of 21st says the loss of Vicksburg
and failure of Gettysburg arc tho two
events of the year which seems to render
highly probable a long and almost inter
minable conlinuanco of tho war. Apart
from victories which wo may achieve on
the field, there arc but two means of coun
teracting the baneful efl'icls of these events
and bringing hostilities to an early close.
Thoi! are events forcing intervention or a
determined opposition by thu conservative
masses of the Xortli to the ubolitiou fac
tion who have control of thu (joverument
at Washington. A long protracted war
will prove n great evil wholely unmixed
with uoml, for the longer thu war coutin
iich the more thoroughly exasperated the
Southern heart will become with the whole
Yankee race und Yankee institutions. We
want the uid of Franco. Wo are able to
nay for it ; let us do it. We shall then
have peace, or a power to work sweet re
venge on our foul foe. The Richmond tfru
nlnul says; from the region of the Uup
pnhaunock there seems to be growing an
expectation Hint iv collision between the
two nnnies is thawing near. All accounts
concur in representing our (rebel) urmy to
be iu the very best condition.

Imp ordered the rebel 'General Assembly

Hopping them, und they coolly took their
own courcO in spito of threuts and expos

out, they said ; they wanted" to go home
and were determined to do so. Most of
the Third nnd Twenty-sixth Louisiana, ttnd
Sixlh Missouri followed them. They tiro
now nt Warrenton with hundred? of
oiheis from Texus and other Southwestern
States, nnd mo availing themselves of
every opportunity to cross the river,
A horrible discovery has just been made
on the rebel line of fort ilico't ions. Quite :i
number of men have been engaged in re
pairing the rebel fort that wus... blown up
on the night of the .'Id instuiit. In the
course of their ojK!rations they have ex
humed sixty or eighty dead bodies found
buried in tfie ruins of the fort. Jt seems
while our miners were nt work making nn
entry into tho side of the hill that was
crowned by the rebel fori, a strong work
ing party of rebels wero ret to work sink
ing it counter mine within the fort. This
party, consisting, it is said, of more than
u hundred men. were in the mine when ours
exploded, and those of them who were not
killed outright were buried nlive. Home
of the exhumed bodies are terrible lacera
ted mid mangled, while others have wot ti
murk or bruiso upon them. Two headf,
one that of u negro, have been dug up.
They were completely severed from the
bodies, the lutter not having yet been found
The bodies urt found iu ulmost every eon

others sitting or lying, und in one iustuncc
a body wus head 'downward a if it had

quxrfr of lfith July says :
There tiro much more than 1 00,000 men
in the Confederacy who have hired sub-di-tutcs
for scrvlci. They have pnld for them
from $:0l) to Sit.OOO. mid have up to this
