We are not at war with a foreign nation where equal force?, or nearly eual ones, may be expected to settle the controversy. Our object is to enforce the laws upon every inch of American soil. It is sot, a trial of arms iu w hich we are to test the courage of parties. Our plain, obvious duty Is to enlist all the power of the Government at once, and put an end to the content. If we had a million soldiers, instead of three or four hundred thousand, w might have half a million of soldiers in Virginia, and the Confederate army would be captured with little effusion of blood. It is quite competent for the loyal people of this Government to overwhelm the Confederate jforres and capture and disperse them without theee bloody contests which result from equal forces end equal chances of victory. Half a million can't enforce the execution of the laws ap&inat the resistance of the same number. The employment of nor mora only provokes and prolongs the contest It is the duty of the Government to send into the field overwhelming numbers; stop enlisting no more till the Confederate States are covered with armies, and resistance is swept! away. Humanity requires this course. The whole power of tha country, nothing less. It is the apprehens ion that this contest will degenerate into ne of savage cruelty. , The way tr prevent it is t end the contetf by overwhelming power. There' will jbe no temptation to exasperate an overwhelming, irresistible power, and provoke acts of cruelty, The lute disgusting acts cf Congress, proposing conization, emancipation, and the employment of negroc, all csul ted from conscious veikni-s- . They were desperate expedients to upply liur lack of power. If they Lad called tor the whole power of the country the rebellion would, lhave fallen without any of these desperate expedients, and it will never be put downj with them. We want no new laws with lard penalties leading to Lai Lai cue results.) We want soldiers, soldiers, soldiers in countless mui- titudj legions, thai tLcra js' to power in ' j this conspiracy to'rcel&t.' If we had had at Bull Run half a million, instead of seventy-fiv- e thousand, the rebellion would have been crushed 'cut, and thousands of live would have' been saved, and hundreds of millions of dell&rs would have been saved. At Kichuiond, McClelLan wanted regiments, brigades, divisions of ftddiera. 'For want of them thousands of men were slaughtered. . .i The post can't bt recalled; nor can we condmn those in authority in that they did not foresee what would be necessary; but there can be hereafter ho excuse for mistakes on the ft eat point of aa ample supply of force.

This will be a vigorous and energetic prosecution of the war. Tie parade of laws and bulky proclama on the statute-boo- k tions are all idle. With such force no more laws are needed, no unconstitutional enact ments or unconstitutional practices are wanted. Such power can afford to be generous as well as just. It will accomplish the end without a trespass on private rights or personal liberty.

The enemy's iobu ;musi nave peen severe. Our men charged and recharged upon them. We have taken three guns. Another account says the rebel troona are estimated at .from 6,000 to 0,000, under uenerau uveu and Breckinridge. The combat was obstinate. Our loss is 250 killed, including a large proportion of officers. The rebel loss, according to prisoners' statements, W88 immense. Among the The ram Arkansas was just above Baton Rouge, but dared not take part in the conflict. ; Later accounts state that the Arkansas was aground when the Essex and other gunboats went to her and set her on fire, and she blew up. i' The transport steamer Lewis Whiteman ran into the gunboat Oneida, fifty mile above New Orleans, on tho night of the Cth, and the transport sunk. She had on board the body of Gen. Williams,with an escort of six of his body guard, also .42 of ours and three Confederates wounded. The body was recovered; thirty-eigwounded soldiers and three of the body guard were saved. The official report of CoL Cahill. com menced after the death of Gen. Williams, stated the rebel force about ten regiments. After a fight of four hours of great severity the enemy were repulsed. Gen. Williams was killed by a rifle ball passing through his chest during the battle. Our forces were obliged to retire about a Quarter of a mile from their original position, and the enemy were able temporary to occupy the camps of the Twenty-firs- t Indiana, Seventh Vermont, and Fourteenth Maine Reg iments, and to destroy mnchof the baggage and camp equipage. They were, however, driven out; but our numbers having been much lessened by tickness, and the men on the field being much exhausted by fatigue and was deemed expedient not to pursue them. The enemy has retired several nines, ana 13 SlUl retiring. I think it is possible that .he may receive and am disposing of my troops in the strongest position." Oat force engaged-waJess than two thousand five hundred. The enemy had at least five thousand, with twelve or fourteen field pieces and some cavalry.

Brigadier General Clark and his Aid, Lieutenant Yerger, delivered themselves to us as prisoners of war. I have also thirty capture! privates prisoners. Breckinridge asked permission in writing to bury his dead. Col. Cahill replied, 'Our men are engaged in the work, which will soon be accom plished.". A passenger from Baton Rouge states our loss in killed at 70; wounded 215. Geu. Williams had three horses shot under him.

Wiliiams, and also a congratulatory order to the troops in their successful engagement, in which he says: "The enemy lost three Brigadiers in killed wounded and; taken prisoners, and many Colonels and field officers. He has more than one thousand killed and woundeJ. You have captured 3 pieces ofartiUery, six caissons, two stand of arms, and a large number of prisoners,'' A letter from' Baton Rouge states tthat the fight between the Essex and Arkansas was a fair stand up fight. Torter lay 300 shot yards distant, pouring solid into the Arkansas, till a brtak' was made, when an incendiary shell was exploded in the, breach, setting her on fire.j The rebel crew left her and she soon exploded.

OaTWe published in our last a brief statement of affairs at Richmond on Sunday, which was based upon "information gatneru from gentlemen of this city whj were in Richmond on the morning of Mon- day.the day succeeding the difficulties allud . ed to in our article. Thesa gentlemen rava such accounts as they heard ia the street of Richmond during a time of great excitement without, of course, knowing from personal observation the facts in th cae. ihe following communication from D. Brcck Esq., the father of James Breck. who was shot by Shackelford, has been handed to U3 for publication, which we give place to with pleasure, as we shall ai publish any counter statement from . the other side, should such be made. It is not our disposition to do injustice to any ono. We pubr lished our notice of this 3ir simply a an item cf news, based, as we conceived, upon proper authority; Ricbmoxd, Kt,, Aug. 7, 13U2. My attention has been called to a statement in the Observer and Reporter of i a regard to the shooting cf my ba, James W. Breck, by James M, Shackelford, in the street of Richmond, on Sunday evening last, and the assertions and charge ren ferred to In the article as the authority for. it are so utterly destitute of truth and ness, that injustice to my son, and espeolaU ly in hi present prostrate and feeble con--- , dition, I cannot permit thorn to pas noticed. It is not tra that ho was ever a member of Price's army, as the article in the and Reporter says "it is asserted." Nor is it true that he came to Kentucky last fall. He was called befor a mititary (United States) oflicer in Missouri last, spring, took the oathof allegiance, and gar bond, no security being required cf him. II shortly afterwards, upon leave, oam to Kentucky on a visit, and has resiled in my family ever since. Tha charge that he "induced Morgan's men to- destroy lis records of the court, which probably brought on the ditSculty with hliu and Shackelford,' I pronounce an infamous falsehood and calumny, ' It is nntrue that he resisted the arrest by Shackelford. He Inquired by whai authority he Was arrested, and expressed a desire to consult his friends. Shackelford replied, he had authority, and ha had to go (U the military camp) or die, and Instantly and before my son could make any reply, shot him. Shackelford was not employed in any military service, and produced no author-- , ity. My son was wholly unarmed. I teel not to shelter him tiom deserved punishment or reproach, but will not see injustice done him if in my power to prevent it. If he has been guilty of any rebel conduct o uttered a rebel sentiment in Kentucky I da not know it; and have not heard of it. For more than ten years past Mr. Shackelford has been my nearest' neighbor, and we hv ever been personal and political friends, and the most charitable conclusion I can come to ia regard t this unfortunate and tad occurrence is, that he must have lalored under some delusion and bees andur some unnatural excitement.
