es, nothing could be done but destroy the cars. The loss, however, is not great. We already have more rolling stock than we can use. The causes which led to the evacuation are such as will commend themselves to every fairly judging mind. Beauregard was, so to speak. powerless.--Had he advanced upon the entrenchments of the enemy, already within a mile — indeed, so near that shell were thrown into the heart of his camps — his success, if at all, should have been limited, and the loss of lpress or the people would be ill-timed and prejudicial to our interests. The movement is not only one of the best, in point of strategy, that has been made during the war, but it will be productive of the highest good ultimately. The motto of Beauregard is "forward, always forward;" and if he has taken one step to the rear now, be sure he will follow it with two forward by and by Like the Irish school-boy, he will advance back wards. Affairs in Memphis look "grand, gloomy, and peculiar,"
dly tell the truth, let the effort be as painful as it might, could the truth by any means be of service to their cause. They are always capable of sacrificing feeling to interest. When, therefore, we find a General, just before a battle, reading to his troops a dispatch from McClellan announcing the capture of Richmond, we may feel assured that his troops have no stomach for the work they are called on to do. When we hear of another reporting to his Government that he has totally routed Beauregard and captured 20,000 of his men, we may regard it as certain that his Government expected great things of him, and that he has grievously disappointed it. When the New York Herald can keep up the spirits of its readers by no better device than stating that the Richmond Dispatch estimates the Confederate loss in the late battle at 8,000 killed, and that our army is about to abandon Richmond and fall back on Lynchburg, we may feel assured that the Herald has gloomy tidings from McClellan, and
wrath of a noble, independent, and outraged people will apply the hemp to their traitorous necks. From the West--a New Merrimac upon the Father of waters — Beauregard's present position. A correspondent of the Savannah Republican, writing from Mobile on the 9th inst., says: The evacuation of Fort Pillow, though commio road. The supply of water is scant for seventy-five miles below Corinth, though much better and more abundant than of the latter place, and it may be that Gen. Beauregard has extended his encampment with a view to relieving the pressure upon the points first occupied. Indeed, it is doubtful whether Halleck can advance further South in the direction taken by Beauregard, unless he first organize and send forward a corps of well- borers. The wells opened by the Confederates can be easily destroyed, in case of a further retrograde movement, in which event it would be almost, if not quite, impossible for an invading force to advance. We can ask nothing be
Letter from Corinth.[from an occasional correspondent.] Corinth, Miss., May 27, 1862. My hurried letter last night was begun before I heard that Beauregard had forbidden all newspaper communications, and had banished all correspondents twenty-five miles from Corinth. I finished it, however, under the eye of my superior officer — at least in sight of him and of Polk's and Beauregard's headquarters — and sent it out of mischief and to prove that a letter could be written which would give no information to the enemy, and of which the authorities here could make no complaint. Here goes for another, which will not reach you until this army has lnder the ribs of death," as Milten hath it. I suggested to my official friend that I did not expect to be serenaded the first night of my arrival, especially as Beauregard had not called, and I supposed was not aware of my presence. The information that they were serenading Gen. Polk did not at all affect my enjoyment; in fact, I
The Northers papers are greatly puzzled to ascertain the whereabouts of General Beauregard. A Cincinnati journal expresses the opinion that his best troops are now at Richmond, and a Washington letter says there are persons in that city who entertain the same view. Col. George F. Shepley, the Federal military commandant at New Orleans, has been appointed "Military Governor of Louisiana." He is a downcast lawyer.

The Morning Post (Ministerial organ) has this paragraph:-- "If Davis and Beauregard can inflict defeat on the forces which are bearing down upon them, the independence of the South will be achieved. If, on the contrary, they are overcome, the South may be considered vanquished, but will indeed, prove but a poor prize to his crch, 1861, if we estimate only the power of the States in square miles.
