"Gen. Ullman's brigade is more than filled and the new country just opened by Gen. Banks's campaign will furnish two or three divisions of negroes in response to Banks' call for a Corps d'Afrique. There is no doubt that the rebels are engaged in raising negro regiments, as it is only from such material that they can now in extensive southern districts recruit their ranks. The regiments are not backward in adopting a uniform which is their death warrant if taken by the rebels."

"Capt. Homer C. Blake, who commanded the Hatteras till sunk by the pirate Alabama, was yesterday presented with a magnificent sword as a testimonial to his bravery."

"a severe infantry fight took place near Suffolk on the morning of the 15th. A heavy rebel force of infantry is reported as having driven in our pickets at Beaver Dam Church. A section of the 7th Massachusetts Battery, the 6th Massachusetts Regiment, and three companies of the 112th New York were sent out to oppose the rebels, with the remainder of the 112th New York, the 170th New York, and the 10th New Jersey, as a second line of battle. After a short skirmish the rebels retired before two companies of the 6th Massachusetts and 10th New Jersey, but again opened soon after. A third assault by our troops was made to draw the rebels forward, but they retreated and our forces now occupy a strong position in and around Carrsville."
