We took an hour rub May to visit the Encampment North of the Village where the i ,vh7flrc a cd Terzy i mustering of the cavalry regiment and the inspection of horses fur the is in Progress. The first thing that Drew our at. Tent ii n. After we were a Lew rods within the Encl Omre the inspection of horses As they were brought in. We found colonel Platt on the ground with some Sharp eyed assistant inspectors. Near by branding Irons were kept hot in a temporary charcoal to be used when the word Given. The process As we saw it for a dozen More As follows the horse when brought Forward by the owner by some one for him and stripped of everything but his bridle Halter made to take a Lew turns which in some instances the Only prelude to a it Juick order from the colonel a take him away we done to want him a a when the discarded candidate for cavalry honors without further delay took up his line of March for the outer Gate to return to his former loss ostentatious employment in civil life. In other cases the horse put to a Lively Trot Lor a few rods under the stimulus of a blow from a whip took a Quick turn on his feet and returned to the stand�?1< be followed by a Crimi nation occasion Illy by an application of the Rule he would toll if he fell Short of the regular height and the order went Forth a a a take him we done to want him a a a a Brand in the latter Oast he at once lira Dej on the nigh fire loot and on the nigh fore Sli Oulder with the letters 1.

I Eforo Daybreak our Brot Mfuat prepared which to ate in thi dense fog of a Virginia morning on the Potomac. Each Man then then took a loaf of bread and Fried pork to correspond filled his canteen with Coffee and fell into line and i reported my company All ready to March. The regiment started at Daybreak in company with �?~20,000 troops which to our Surprise we found extending from Chain Bridge some 2 mile along the Road and to took our line of March for Lewisville. No one not even the colonel knew our destination what purpose we were destined to carry out but from the immense preparations opposed an Advance into the enemy a country and a probable Battle wore before us. To marched about five Miles when the immense column divided one half going to the left on a Road that diverged from the River just beyond Langley our division keep it ing the main Road nearest the River at this Point rapid and continued firing heard in front and we halted and were bored to Load. Every one of us expected we were attacked and that we were to to immediately engaged in Battle but n d a Man flinched All seemed eager for a fight. But the rebels were not ready for us and after firing once at us without doing any damage they rapidly retired. To then marched Forward and deployed in front of Lew Onsville which great town is nothing More Lesi than three houses about one eighth Ofa mile from each other and off in the distance. Hours in v 1, for with the Long rows of his follows. Of those which we saw , Cue half were Roj octo l. This however we Learned beyond the average. Taking the whole thus far brought Forward one fifth More jux a a fourth near that have been rejected. In some instance we were a of those brought Forward by a con tractor Are rejected and in others nearly All c approved having satisfied our curiosity so fur.

And by last night 17th inst. About Tel bad Lieen a. Proved. As inc horse trading business generally is fruitful in hard stories it is not to be won dared at if. In a Case like this the Purchase of a thousand horses for the to Many of All shapes Sixes and colors Are found in circulation. Were to to print a Quarter of them we should be doing quite a Largo business in the sensation line we doubt not. We can serve the Public More usefully we think by giving the Plain facts a them As Given to us by col. Platt himself in answer to our inquiries. The department cot. Platt the Specif Catious. As to the character of the horses to be purchased and fix>38 the Ai Crage maximum Price which the horses for the entire regiment must Cost the government. That Price is $110and if they Cost less than that on the average the govern can mint is the gainer. Col. Platt a.? co Lonel of the regiment is charged with the business of collecting Insp Jiing and approving the horses and has no a pecuniary interest directly indirectly in the fms Noss. His pay As an officer is fixed by tho govern Cut Aud that is i1.3 has can have for his services. He employs a trusty and discreet Man to visit the different coun tics of the Stato from which tho men for tho regiment come who contracts with such individuals As choose to Dos to for Many and agrees with each Man on the average Price he is to receive for such horses As arc approved out of Liis lot. Neither this contracting agent nor any who Are employed to a is in the Msj Section. Are allowed any profit commission Bonus whatever their decision is 11 be free of All pecuniary Bias. In fact the opinion of tho inspectors goes for nothing unless col. Platt himself approves it. No horse is accepted except by Bis order and on his own personal Insi Clion. For what horses Are accepted he gives in to the quartermaster to pay so much per i Irsel according m the Price agreed Utu with the contractor who brings them the quart avast pays the Money on the order and the transaction is ended. Previous to the Roep Tinoso of the , the a Ractor and not the government b at All expense Aud risk for him. Alter the S. Brand is once on him the Iov emment owns him and Supporta him. If however it should appear that in any instance Toncre had Lieen a concealed unsound one a in the animal known to the contractor when he brought him Forward a he 18 bound to take the animal Back and to refund the Money. It is difficult to see what better Mode could be pursued for the Purchase of a thousand horses for a cavalry regiment to secure Good horses and at a fair Price and to give a fair Chance for a share of sales to All parts of the state. As for the contractor whether he brings Forward ten Twenty fifty horses he knows what sort of horses they must be and what he is to have Lor such As Are Token and that it is not for him to decide on their approval. If he buys them at a Good Lay and they Are such that All nearly All Are approved he May get fairly paid for Bis expenses and risks. It from Lack of judgment eagerness to make a Large profit he brings Forward a lot of which one third one half More Are left on his hands will Likely to loot up 1 a Egiy. By. Our i. Cl.?, where w.

Joseph mo., a gang of Sec ski in outlaws had their evil Eye upon $80,000 in Gold in the express office were preparing to pounce upon it when the agent in charge of the Money adopted a Jilan to deceive them.

I rom tho clothes inside one of the messengers quickly selected a suit More comparable wit i the appearance of the trunk than the one to usually wore. The treasure then packed snugly inside and an old piece of rope tied carelessly around it supplied the place of the lock and held the securely Down.

A a up to Iho time of their arrival at this port tho party had been for Over twelve months without receiving news from Home excepting however a s Litany English newspaper obtained at upe navic which contained president Lincola s Lor extra session of Congress. It May be readily imagined eager were officers and Crew to possess themselves of newspapers containing news from Home. Since their departure the storm Cloud then a Mere speck on the political horizon has spread Over the heavens and plunged the country into the horrors of civil . Events have followed one alter the other in Quick succession and to those Arctic voyagers it must seem As if the occurrences of an Ordinary lifetime had been compressed into the few months of their absence.

After reviewing the troops he made a Brief speech to them and then returned this quarters at tho . From another letter from the 4th regiment we take the following which will let a interesting. A Little account of my first experience on j picket guard May to interesting. 1 the first intimation we had that 150 me detailed from the eth were ordered to Start in 10 mind a a a port at a bad Quad to sri at Vanderworken a House some 3 Miles from our Camp on Road to fall Church.

A Ilano Ock and Aid Rode Forward and ordered a Advance which we did pm paused by them some 2 mile beyond the main body to a Point from which the rebels had made an attack the Day before. We bad every read it a to believe rebels were concealed in tho bu.he., Notan eighth of a mile from us but the boys pressed eager fur a fight and hoping to have one. One third of our Force stationed Here As a Reserve concealed in tho Bush lilo the rest deployed As Skirmisher to tho right and left. We Lay Here about two hours seeing and hearing nothing but All the time with the Prospect of doing so keeping our nerve Strung up to the highest pitch.

Tho present insurrection not even sealed itself in arms when Diloyal citizens Hast a cd to foreign countries to invoke their inter Van Ion for the overthrow of the government and the Federal Union. These agents Are known to have made their appeals to some of the More important state.?, without Success. It is not Likely however they will remain Content with such refusals. Indeed it is understood that they Are industriously endeavouring to accomplish their disloyal purposes by degrees and by indirectly Tak big advantage of tho embarrassments of Agricula inc Matulac Turca Commerce in foreign countries resulting from tho insurrection they inaugurated at Lioma. They seek to in sour common country in controtcr.?ie.? with states with which every Public and private inter a t require that it shall remain in of peace Amit and ii ends a. I Amable to state for your satisfaction that the Prospect of any Nich i turban co i less serious now than it Las been at any previous period during the course if the insurrection. It is nevertheless necessary now As it has been hitherto to take every precaution that is possible to avoid the evils of foreign to be super induced upon those of the civil commotion which to Are endeavouring to euro. One of the most obvious of such precautions is that our ports and harbours in the seas and lakes should be put in a condition of Complete defense for any nation May be said to vol a Anta Rily incur danger in seasons when it fail to show that it has sheltered itself on every Side from which the storm might possibly Orao. The measures which the exec Ativo can adopt in this emergency Aro such Only As Congress has sanctioned and for which it bad provided the provident is putting Forth tho Dilig i is and w a the messes. J. H. Paddock of this i . And j. C. Stearns of Bradford went on to Yash in ton with the it. 4th to pay them the sum due from tho state. They succeeded in paying All tho men and . Paddock returned on , bringing several thousand dollars from the soldiers sent Home to their friends to be placed on Deposit. This fact shows the Wisdom of tho appointment of a financial agent As announced last . Grc.1t satisfaction of seeing that these efforts seconded by the favor Aid and support of a Loyal patriotic self sacrificing people Are rapidly bringing the military and naval forces of the United of tits into to highest state of efficiency. But Congress chiefly absorbed during its recent session with these measures and did not provide As amply As could be wished for tho fortification of oar sea and Lake coasts. In previous . Loyal states have applied themselves by Independent and separate activity to support and Aid tho Federal government in its arduous responsibilities. The same disposition has been Rani tested in a degree eminently honorable by All tho Loyal states daring the present insurrection. In new of this fact and relying upon the increase ind continuance of the same disposition on the part of tho Loyal states tho president has directed Luo to invite your attention to the subject of the improvement and Over fiction of the defences of the state Over which you preside and to ask you to submit the Subjict to the consideration of the legislature when it shall have asic bled. Such proceedings by the state would require Only a temporary use of its Means. The expenditures ought to be made with the concurrence of the government. Being thus made with the concurrence of the govt for general defense there is every reason to believe that Congress would Sanction what the state should do and would provide for its reimbursement. A bold these suggestions be accepted the president will direct proper agents of the Federal a despatch from Potosi mo., says that the Bridge Over big River burned by a body of 600 rebels under Jeff. Thompson. There were about 50 Federal troops guarding the Bridge a o stood their ground and from Stone piles and other places of shelter did Good execution. Thuv were finally surrounded however and compelled to surrender. Their loss is 1 killed and 6 wounded. The rebel loss is 5 killed and 4 wounded. Immediately after the surrender the Federal prisoners were sworn by Jeff. Thompson not to Bear arms against the a Southern confederacy and released. The rebels then burned the Bridge and speedily retired. Jeff.

And the fact that the. Necessities of the tru.

Exi Losion a powder Mill at extensive powder Mills of Russell amp co., at Bennington were blown up tuesday morning at about a Quarter past six of clock causing two loud and distinct reports which were heard for Miles around the neighbourhood. Strange to say no person injured by the explosion. The Mills have been for some time pm running on a government contract and it is supposed that the Accident the result of carelessness on the of some of the employees of the establishment in their hurry to fulfil tho order. The loss is quite heavy to the Troy whig. The Navy department is said to have known that it the intention of Slidell and Mason to leave Savannah Charleston for the West indies where they would embark on Board a British Steamer for eng _ towards tho subject they Begio.

There a Resolution of m. 0 Ardner adopted yesterday requiring the governor to report to tho legislature All the i Ems of Alt the expended by him when to whom and for what paid tho names of All officers commissioned by him the Date of their a commission and the time from which to which they i drawn pay ac., a. Of course it would Imp. A Large amount of labor upon tho governor but to which i do not understand that he objects at All and it is undoubtedly highly proper that the information asked for should to Given. A communication from the Ijo Vernor this morning called attention to the great labor .Juired in order to answer the demand of the Resolution and asked authority to employ tho necessary clerk for the work. On this simple Jue lion a dig Cue Sion arose full two hours m Irneth ranging from tho Dan to the Beo Rahebi of the whole subject and finally granting to it Quost As nine tenths it of the House were satisfied should be done Ery first. This done another Resolution is in med utely introduced fur appointing a me the accounts of the governor adjutant and inspector and quartermaster Gen this after do Lse usion till past 12o�?Teloek, is adopted and these two were the Only thing done this Forenoon. Tho Only matter of Public interest in the after son the Intro nation of a Bill by judge Thomas of West Fairlee authorizing the has finally pcs de both houses. The election of Stata officers so far As has passed off very qui Ouye with the exception of third director of the state prison for which there were at least nine different Domino Tiki Only Aror four ballots a Choice made.

Harmon has not yet Ravia his report. There seems to be an invincible Dover Minst Iob this year that nobody shall got along without giving a full account of himself and All his doings which of is As it should be. I hear hints of an adj Ament Over from saturday morning until tuesday but i Only hop if it is done that the people will Call every one who votes for it to a strict Leo it unt tho talk that there is nothing which can to done b a aus commit toes Are not prepared to report. To. Is pretty much All talk. At any rate commit done to i a hero work during adjourn if More than anybody else so that business n the legislature returns is in Preo Isola the e condition of advancement is when , oct. 18. Mirabile dict the legislature has actually refused to adjourn Over from thi afternoon until monday afternoon which is practically uyt As is usual at this stage of the sess which i rather think will Settle the matter for a so Iod As there will be much ewer reasons in favor of such above at any later other Tims. So Many have left however to night will to Morrow morning that 1 few but Little in be done even should there be a quorum. There bos been quite an Advent to Day c Tankard a measures among them the a dog ill a a a Bill for the of part of Elimor to Morristown and a Bill requiring All barrels casks jugs packages of any kind in which any spirituous liquor is brought into this state to by distinctly marked with tho names of the pcs of sending to whom sent and the kind and Quality of liquor c stained in them of making liquors found within this state not so marked by reason of that fact alone a contraband a am Der certain conditions specified in the Biu liable be confiscated even deelared�?ofree�?T�?T�?1 themselves into tho ground at least. The Bill s the legislature last year. It is introduce. This year by . Bales tho member from Ludlow who understood last year to be the ichor of the Bill of last year though not then member of the legislature. D seems to Moth be if executed will catch a Good share of those mysterious casks kegs ac., marked a. B. something equally cabalistic and which Lough nobody knows what is in them who they Are , in Soma disappear and Nei being As a a strayed Stolon a a we have right to conc Udo go to tho hands and perhaps Reid tho Mouths for which they Are intended and which it is tho general mans us a at least Are filled with the a a Good the dog Bill puts the animals into the Orand list at f 1,00 per head which places them on an Equality in tho of taxes and value with the Best of our horses and which would undoubtedly bring about a very salutary a a reformation in theb>r.ct�r of the. Casia population of the Fute. Another Bill giving officers and member of the legislature salaries Instea-1 of the per diem al Iwancio came in to Day. That of the president of be Senate and speaker of tho House to be $160, of tho members of tho two houses $80, of the doorkeeper and messengers $c0, annually. There seems to be a determination to tinker that Itter somehow but it seems to me if anything is to done that a provision merely limiting the no beyond which they shall not draw pay old accomplish All that is desired and be much More satisfactory than the salary of coming which suggestion is a a meet respect Fuhr i committee on Eju Catiz a rather unaccountably As it secme.1 to reported against to Bill providing that schools be supported on tirely on the grand list but the friends of the Leasure have arrested the proceed Ings and got it on tho table where it will probably remain ill they Are thoroughly prepared to meet it. The sensible ground for the Adverse report a fear lest by stirring up this matter we should such a a a hornets a nest about us that the opponents of our Board of education and our pres school a Stem would use in to boil Wrath and kick the whole concern into the Middle of next week some other Cju ally bad place. Bat i believe such fears Are groundless. Cer mainly if there Ever a time when the state should feel the importance of being careful what kind of men they Are raising and tho Best possible facilities for producing tho Best possible article it. There can be no More Short sighted policy than that of trenching in any thing which shall injure in the least this leading interest of the state and i done to believe the representatives of the it Elligen people of Vermont will do any such thing. . Balch of Ludlow offered a sort of a three Story Resolution to Day instructing the commit Dank the committee on corporations and the general com. Respectively to inquire into tho pc Deccy of enacting a general banking Law general corporation Law and a general Law for changing names and report by Dill other Rise.
