From Lynchburg.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Lynchburg, Va., June 12th. A most important change in schedule will take place about the first of next week, (probably Sunday, 16th,) on the railroads connecting from the Confederate metropolis to the city of Mew Orleans. The mail train for the West will leave Richmond about 5 P. M., and reach Lynchburg about midnight, leaving for the West on the Virginia and Tennessee Road at 12:30 A. M.

M., will dine at Liberty. Returning the accommodation train will reach this point

We commence one narration with accounts from the Baltimore papers of June 12th, which are, indeed, more nearly accurate than any that follow; although the "Associated Press" narrative, revised by Gen. Butler, is a weak attempt to gloss over a disastrous event: [From the Baltimore Sun, June 12th.] Old Point, June June 12th.] Old Point, June 10, 1861.--At a late hour on Sunday night Gen.

n field fight, where they are confident they could drive them to the four winds. A Brigadier General is badly needed at the Newport News camp, where five regiments are stationed, and no recognized authorized local commander. The Richest of all. The following appears in some of the New York papers. It was evidently designed to remove from the public mind, by the publication of this monstrous lie, the sting of defeat; for there is no trick to which the New York journals will not descend: Late and Highly Important — Capture of the Rebel Batteries at Great Bethel by Gen Butler--One Thousand Rebel Prisoners Taken! Washington,June 12--1 A. M. A special messenger arrived an hour since from Fortress Monroe, bringing the intelligence that Gen. Butler this morning proceeded, with a large reinforcement, to Great Bethel, and after a severe fight, captured their batteries, one of seven, and the masked battery of fourteen guns, and also took one thousand rebel prisoners.
