FROM JACKSONVILLE, FLA.
ORGANIZATION' OF CITIZENS FOK LOCAL DfcFENCE.
The authorities of the post having sug
•gesteef to the citizens the propriety of being
organized into military companies for local
defence in view of the recent operations of
the rebel forces outside the lines, a prelimi
nary meeting of the citizens was held at the
office of Lt. Himack. Ord. Officer, when,
after an adurtss by Col. Tilghman, com
mander of the Post, three companies were
immediately organized and officers chosen.
It is proposed to have one or two good
militia companies in a thorough state of drill
and readiness for any emergency. It is be
lieved that the citizens of Florida, who have
come to Jacksonville to enjoy the protection
of the Government, will heartily join in this
movement- The military authorities are
disposed to favor the voluntary formation ot
militia for home defence as the first step
toward the restoration of the civil authority
and a return to self-government. The Flori
da Union says:
We speak udvisedly, when we say that the
fullest liberty and protection will lie accord
ed them in the legitimate exercise of all their
civil powers and duties so soon as any con
siderable numbers shall manifest a desire to

U. S. Marshal's Sale.— The U. S. Marshal
for this District, made sale on Monday of
several valuable lots of land under the con
fiscation Act,and at an adjourned sale on the
following day of a lot of prize property, con
sisting oi cotton, rosiu and turpentine. In
view of all the circumstances the property
brought fair prices. A small lot of Florida
long staple brought (50 cts., and another lot
60 cts.; the short staple was sold for 63 cts.,
the rosiu was sold for sl2 per bbl., and the
turpentine for $1 05 per gallon.
Torpedoes Captured—An expedition from
the gunboat Norwich, under command of
Act. Ensign Liuscott, started on the morning
of the 18Ui ult., and landing at Bremer’s
Point, proceeded up Drummond’s Creek
about two miles and while foraging cumc
across four toipedoes on the bank of the
creek, which from appearances had not been
there more than forty-eight hours ; upon a
closer examination they proved to be ready
fjr placing in the creek,being eacli filled with
about sixty pounds of powder, of large grain
and English glazed manufacture, and must
have cost the rebels quite a fortune in their
scrip to purchase it. The anchors were al
ready attached, consisting of one hundred
pound shells, filled with shot.
Mr. Lincott, with the aid of Mr. Four
and Wambling of the Engineer Corps, with
a party of men and canoes'succceeded in get
ting them off to the Norwich about ten
o’clock the same night.
Another Haiti. —A portion of the same
party which recently made a raid, an ac
count of which we published on the lltli
ult., sturted from Jacksonville on Saturday
last and landed at the head of Clark’s. Creek,
and striking out into the interior about five
miles, came across a rebel picket-post, on
Robert’s plantation, of seven men, captur
ing Lieut. Shedd and four men, and killing
two others. The rebels were armed with
carbines and revolvers, captured from United
States troopp, ihree of which were Spencer’s
seven shooter rifles captured from our troops
at Gainesville last summer. The party
brought the prisoners and their arms
Into Jacksonville on Monday last, but were
obliged to leave three horses with their equip
ments, not having transportation to bring

There is now no doubt that the enemy in

From passengers who arrived iu this city
this morning, from Selma, we learn that the
Yankees are near Montevallo, two divisions
strong, commanded by Brig.-Gen. McCook.
Captain Harvie, of our scouts, reports the
enemy, in considerable force, on the 27th, as
within 29 miles of Tuscaloosa.
From conversations with various depart
mental officers, some just arrived this morn
ing trom Selma, we learn that according to
the reports of the scouts, the enemy, six
thousand strong, started from Tuscumbia.
Ttiey divided at Jasper, one column moving
in the direction of Tuscaloosa, and the other
towards Montevallo. This column two thou-
sand five hundred strong, under command ot
Gen. Ed. McCook, camped last Tuesday
night at or near the widow Dupree's, three
miles from Elyton. They had with them a
wagon train and artillery. They came
through the town of Elyton aud burned
everything there. They also |burned the

tions of our forces to successfully meet the
movements of the enemy, but from motives
of prudence conclude it will not do to enter
into details. We do kuow this much, how
ever, that the “Wizard of the Saddle,” is on
.the flank, and a sufficient force in trout of
the raiders to prevent them having every
thing their own way.

Montevallo, states that when he left the
enemy had not reached that vicinity, huß

excited, and numbers of people were moving
It ine force of the enemy which left Tus
cumbia is correctly estimated, and only 2500

the main column must have gone in the di

We have information that the enemy are
tampering with the wires, which they have
tapped at 6ome point not known. A dis

LOSS OF THOMAS’ STORES AT EA9TPORT.
Sknatobia, March 24.
▲ large amount of quartermaster and
comm'ssary stores, including 20,000 sacks of
corn, belonging to Gen. Thomas’ forces,
were recently carried away at Eastport by a
ludden rise in the Tennessee river.
THE ADVANCE OF THE ARMY OF
The anticipated advance of a large por
tion of the Army of the Potomac seems to
have been delayed but for the briefest pos
j s ibie Space —if at all—by the ineffectual effort
i of Lee to resume the offensive in front of
A powerful infantry and cavalry force,
under the immediate direction of the Lieu
tenant-General, cut clear away from its base
before daylight on the morning of Thursday.
Its direction was by the routes which have*
been tried with varying success on more
than one occasion before. The infantry or a
large part ot it, took the Vaughan and Hali
fax plank load toward Hatcher’s Run The
cavalry under Sheridan was pushed forward
by the directest road for Dinwiddie Court
house, a point about half way between the
Weldon and the Southside Railroads, or
about fifteen miles distant from each, and the
same distance south by west of Petersburg!!.
From Dinwiddie Court-house Sheridan’s
presumed course would lie in the direction
of Burkesville, at the junction of the South
side and Danville Railroads; and striking
for that point, he would have a twenty mile
ride from Dinwiddie Court-house to the
Southside road, and eighteen miles more to
Burkesville. The entire distance, then, from
the starting-place to the junction of the two
roads that now keep open communication
between Lee and Johnston, and supply
Richmond with provisioning, would be about
fifty-three miles. And unless Sheridan has
met with some unexpected opposition, it is
probable that by the time this goes to press,
his gallant troopers will have effectually cut
Lee s liue at both the Southside and Dauville
roads. The chances are many to one that
Burkesville station Is to-day in Sheridan's
possession. And if so, the evacuation ol
Richmond can hardly be other than a matter
ol almost instant necessity. Lee, at least,
will have to come out from behind his iu
trenchraents, and strike whatever blow ad
ditional he can, in the open Held, at the pow
erful advancing army of which Sheridan’s
horsemen are the heralds.
An attempt to check the advance of our in
fautry seems to have been ntade by a rebel
Division under Griffin, near the Boydtown
plank-road, on Thursday afternoon. But the
resistance appears to have been of the feeblest
kind, and probably was only attempted in the
hope of gaining some delay to enaole Lee to
count his chances in the new emergency.—
The delay of this advance of our army, which
was doubtless attributed by Lee to Grant's
fear of risking the possibilities of another des
perate series of sorties like those of Saturday,
seems to have put the rebel General altogeth
er off his guard. The prisoners taken con
fess that tne movement was a complete sur
prise. And to this fact possibly it will be
found that we shall mainly owe the success,
at least of that part of the programme which
Gen. Sheridan has been instructed to carry
out. At the last moment —when the real
scope ofGen. Grant’s movement came to be
understood—desperate efforts seem to have
been made by Lee to hurry forward what
ever force he could spare for the defence of
the southside Railroad. As Sheridan had
sufficient time to strike that road at an early
hour yesterday, it is altogether probable that
he has headed off Lee’s defensive force ; and
that both Richmond and Petersburg are to
day completely isolated from every portion
of the Confederacy outside of Virginia.
Thomas’ legiou is sweeping down through
the mountains of Southwestern Virginia—
effectually barring every footpath of egress
for Lee in the direction of East Tennessee.
Johnston is so perfectly powerless either to
strike Sherman in his front, or to bring up
bis shattered forces to the aid of his Chief,
that the Richmond papers confess that he
has not been heard from since the battle of
Fayetville. It seems, then, scarcely any
longer open to us to question, that this ac
cursed rebellion is soon to receive its final
blow almost in sight of the Confederate cap
ital, and in the very heart of the common
wealth which has been, for lour years,
ihe mainstay of the conspiracy.— Neto York

Tiik Siamese Twins —The Philadelphia
Ledger has intelliugence by a North Caro
lina gentleman that the Siamese Twins are
still living on their plantation near Salisbury,
NT G\, but tor the last two years their do
mestic happiness, has been* disturbed by a
falling out between then - wives, caused by
chikhen. Up to the period that each lm’d
five children, all prospered well enough, but
one of them had a sixth, and this awoke
euvy and jealousy to such a degree that the
two sisters, not being bound together like the
twin brothers, would no longer live under
the same roof, though still in differeflt houses
on the same plantation. The brothel’s arc
now, it seems, about fifty years of age, hut
oue, the smaller and feeh er of the two, looks,
it is said, now fully ten years older than the
other. They can turn hack to hack or face
to face, hut that is as far as® the remarkable
bond that unites them permits. There is an
artery as large as the fcemoral artery that
A few years since they visited London and ;
consulted the leading surgeons there as to
the possibility of cutting tne ambilicus that
unites them, so that in the case of the death
of one the life ot the other might lie saved.
Among other experiments tried to deter
mine the safety of 9uch an operation, a liga
ture was tied firmly tor a lew.moments round
the connection between them’ ss as to pre
vent the circulation of blood through the
arteTy. But it seemed as if each would ex
pire if this were longer persisted in. The
smaller of the two tainted away and lost all
consciousness, and there were symptoms that
the same effect would follow to die other.
Should one die the other would probably not
live, though if the smaller and feebler died
first it might be worth while to try the experi
ment of operating, hut there could he little
reason to expect success. Although their
feelings and passions are generally tue same,
their mental operations art not wholly gov
erned by the same law. Each one cau hold
a conversation with a different person at the
same time. One does not necessarily know,
therefore, what may be communicated to the
other. Since the breaking out of the rebel
lion they have both dressed in the Confede
rate gray, and they are both members of the
same church, having united with a small
Baptist church in their neighborhood, of
which they have been considered very worthy
members, though born Siamese.
