U'e all moved off in as rcairniticeat style as I ever savt, the lines perfectly Kiruied On we went When we had iirossed about hall the interTening space, they . the enemy) opened upon us a tremendous shower ol' grape and canister; but 00 we dasheo. our brigade and Picketu’s men I could see nothing ot the rest of our di vision, as they were too far to the loft. ,My whole attention yas directed to onr own brigade and Pickett's Divihion, as we had been ordered t.. keep dressed to the right. When we had gotten within about two hundred yard^ of the oneuij H works we commenced tiring, but stil! advajicin^. The storm of lead which now met us i.s beyond description Grape and eani.-vt!r, intermingled with minies and buckshot The snii>k.' was denrx"', and at tiiflcs I could scarcely distinguiph my uwn men ifom Pickett’s; and to «ay that any one : mile otf could do so is utterly absurd On Wv pushed, and were now right upon tli.. ei'- ni) work?, when we-T*'c««v'd n I'unrdcri iis tir«- our left flank. I, looked to sec %Thcr.i it cHiti»’ f'rotn, and, lo! we were completely flanked upon our left, not only by infantry, but artilltr}. Here candor eompcls me to admit that on*’ of tbc nf Qnj. i^ivisioahad given wav, the cn- my had seized upon a galling fire into our left, which compelled th.' nrooj>s to give way in succe.ssion, to the riL'lit What could we do now!^ At the very moment 1 thought rietory ours, I ?aw it snatched from our hand?. With n-t support upon the Icfr. I asked myself what should wf> do. I had only about sixty men left in my regfment, and that ^mall number diminishing every moment, (the others had suffere.d as badly.) The order e&me from the right to fall back. We did so a* the same tiiue with Pickett The day was lost. You nm-t oU- .'■i.rve I do not attach at:y blame to Pickett I think he did ^:s duty; and if he did we eortainlv did our-; because I kn: w. w^ went rLt, far a** Ve did, aa-i I can safely assert, some distance be yond, owing to the shape of the enemy’fl worlcs. wh'.oh ran backward in our front, in the forat -if a curve, und which compelled us to go beyond where Pickett was, already at their works, iti order to reach ^hera ourselves.

Dudley’s brigade of negroes was eutirely broken up in the engagement, which re.sulted in their capture, '’’he Haltimore Gazette .says there is no longer any doubt that the X‘^®hc Lafourche region is lince more abandoned to the Confederates. In the yankee House of Representatives on the 1st Mr. Colfax of Indiana offered a reso lution proposing the expulsion of Mr. Long of Ohio, for scDtiments delivered in a speech on the day previous, favoring the recognition the Southern Confederacy. The resolution failed to be voted ■'on tor the want of a two thirds vote The debates on the resolution were very personal and productive of excitement and confusion All the Sutlers of the army of the Potomac were ordered to leave by the lUth, in view of an eal-ly forward movement.

Peniufula S>‘ws.—There Was a report yester day that the yankee frigate Minnesota, lying off Newport New,-',, had been badly injured by the explosion of a torpedo. The fact.s are that an at tempt was made to blow up thjs yankee ws.spl by Captain Hunter David.son; but the results of the experiment are not exactly kn^wn. *Capt, Da- •vid.son fuanaged to approach the Minnesota with his .small steamer under cover of the night,’ ex Tiloded a torpedo under her quarter on the. star board si'lcj and immediately backed, making aU possible haste to get away from the enemy’s guns It was impossible for him tc know the effect of the expK«ion. Tiie charge of the torpedo wa^s sixty pounds of powder Capt. Davidson reports that on the |xplosion great confusion ensued on the Minnesota, ojders, oaths and execrt^ons tol lowing in rapid sutwession. The Minnesota id a first class 44 gun frigate, a crack ves.sel, and will Be remembered for her part in the Virginia Mer rimae exploit.

At the same time and place, the Missionary Board and the Publishing Committee will hold their annual meeting. A delegate from each of the annual Canferenccs will meetj in joint session, with the Jiishops and Boards for advice and suggestion as to the interests of Southern Methodism. This Council is a temporary expedient in lieu of,the General Conference. Outrages of the Enemy.—We learn from a most reliable source, that a Yankee gunboat visited the farm of Mrs. Robert Wilson, on James River, last Tuesday, and committed such depre dations on the premises, as to completely deprive the owner of-the means of subsistence for some time to come\ They burnt the corn crib, with its contents, killed all the sheep, mules and horses, and carried off fifteen negroes, every one owned by Mrs. W , except a miller, whe fled on the approaoh of the enemy, and a woman, who was too sick to be removed ^ Fet*rthnrg Express Yankee 6Vue*^.—The Br^don (Miss.)

Raleigh (hnff'Snale Shot' Jdaking in the Army.—The difficultpf of supplying the army with clothing, and especially with shoes, has been a subject of much concern from the period df its first campaign to the pren- ent time. One brigade in the army of Northern Virginia—Mahone’s—having experienced the in convenience of walking through the enemy and his territory barefoot about long enough, conclud ed, during the last winter, to render it^lf inde pendent ot the Government shoe shops and block ade runners, and get up a shoe shop of its ovd. The corps of shoe makers, principally self made workmen, and excellent ones in the bargain, rood numbered 28. They obtained supplies by «x- ploring the wood^ and fields about the camps and gathering up hides which had been thrown awiiy by army butehcrs^ and exchanging them for leather, tools and thread, at Oovernment rates In this way $7000 worth of materials was obtain ed, affd, during the winter, 2000 pairs of shoes were made, a large number of boets and shoes were ^ted, half soled and otherwise repaired, and the brigade put generally upon a good "war footing.” By the beginning of the coming cam- paign^ each soldier in the brigade will have an extra pair of shoes to swing to his blanket, and, so far a.s his feet are concerned, will be amply sup plied until next winter. The shoes are all of admirable make—unlike the majority of Govern meet shoes, turned out at the rate of half a doz en J!iairs per hand*a’day—and each pair will last for six months.—Richmmd Examiner.
