angers. The commander to the commanded, and each to the other. Let me tell you who I am "I am a General; made by Beauregard — a General selected by Generals Beauregard and Bragg for this command when they knew it was in peril. They have knownGenerals Beauregard and Bragg for this command when they knew it was in peril. They have known me for twenty years. Together we have stood in, the fields of Mexico. Give them your confidence. Give it to me when I have earned it. "Soldiers, the Mississippi valley is entrusted to your courage, to your discipline, to your patience. Exhiat the bloody battle of Pea Ridge, and to Major-Generals Grant and Buell, and their forces, for the glorious repulse of Beauregard, at Pittsburg, in Tennessee, and to Major-General Pope and his officers and soldiers for the bravery and skill displaye men hurried early to dinner at their homes, to unburden to families and wives the pent-up elation of their souls. Beauregard and Johnston, the great military athletes of the rebellion, had been met and crushed, and all felt that two mighty pill
General Beauregard The Dictator Sylla, the most fortunates man of whom we have any account, had the same confidence in his good luck, that Napoleon is said to have had in his star. He created abelief in luck. Some men are born to fortune, and some have fortune thrust upon them. Gen. Beauregard, seems to be one of these fortunate individuals. He is always successful. Everything he undered at, Marshal; Fortune is a woman, and you and I are old." Now, there is no doubt that if Beauregard live long enough-he will be old, too. But, for the present, we believe in his fortune. The fiys feel confident on such occasions that we shall soon hear some good news. The belief in Beauregard's talents is, as we have said, very general. It is so with the Confederates, and, what is morhe thought, would never have led him unscathed through such a furnace of fire, unless it had some great work for him to accomplish. Might not the same inference be drawn with respect to Beauregard!
ads of powder, and that the engine and train had been pressed that morning by the Government in great haste to carry the powder to our forces near Huntsville. They arrived at Kingston, where they met the down freight train and want upon the turn- out — showing that they understood the schedule and minutest workings of the road. As the train passed them, the conductor thereon made the same inquiry of them concerning the unusual train, and received the same answer — taking powder to Gen. Beauregard's army. As soon as the down train passed, and the switch could be changed, they shot away with all their speed and mystery. We learn that a train had been put in pursuit of them — having repaired the track — and hopes to overtake them before they reach any of the many bridges across the Chickamauga and other streams. No doubt they are Lincoln schemes, sent down among us to destroy those bridges to retard our movements of troops, and the thought is a very serious one to us.
ire. The real beginning of the campaign may now be witnessed. From Tennessee we have but meagre accounts. In this region the Confederates have been thoroughly beaten. They seem to be wholly unprepared for the vigor of Grant, Buell and the rest of the Western Generals. The consequence has been the occupation of Central Tennessee by a Federal army, and the retreat of the Confederates to the Southern limits of the State. Here, however, they are said to be preparing for a stand. General Beauregard is in command, and place which is given in the telegram as Chavenoon, but which is probably Cleveland or Chattanooga, is their headquarters. These places are almost on the frontiers, of Georgina, but it is beyond a doubt that the Confederates will do all in their power to recover Tennessee. The loss of a State is especially dangerous to the Southerners, inasmuch as their Confederacy is founded on the principle of State independence, and they have too much reason to fear that if Tenne

14th, contains the following: News from Washington. Washington April 18. --The President has approved the joint resolution suggested by him, declaring the United States ought to co-operate with and afford pecuniary aid to any State which may adopt the gradual abolishment of slavery. The District of Columbia abolition bill will probably be laid before him for action to-morrow. General Banks has telegraphed that information has been received from Gen. Jackson's camp that Gen. Beauregard was dead. This rumor is not credited here. The Committee on the Conduct of the War have completed their examination of witness on regard to the alleged atrocities of the rebels at Bull Run, and will this week make a personal inspection at that place, and soon thereafter present their report. Members of the committee say it is true, according to the testimony of Gov. Sprague and many others, that in some cases the graves which contained the bodies of our soldiers were opened and t
but of taking the cities of the Mississippi Valley, is not fairly began.--We never read in print such glorification of an army, of its men, its discipline and equipments, as those which the Yankees uttered about the grand Federal army that was moving on Corinth, nor a more contemptuous account than they gave of the Southern forces at Corinth. The boasting last year about the Grand. Army of the Potomac afforded the only thing that approached a parallel. They were going to bolt Johnston, Beauregard, Bragg, &c., at a mouthful. But look at the result. No sooner were they away from the protection of their gunboats than their superior numbers, discipline and equipments availed them nothing, and another Manassas smote them to the earth. We believe that thus it will be to the end; but the South will continue to fight on, fight ever, and leaving to the North the penile part of howling itself hoarse over indecisive achievements, and boasting grandiloquently of victories before they are wo
