soil, or we are conquered. [Cheers.] I do not expect the latter to take place, Such men as we have can never be conquered, [cheers.] because they are fighting for that which is dearer than life itself — their rights [Cheers.] I have left behind me wife, children, home, everything that is dear to man. My men are in the same condition.--We would be worse than cowards if we gave up the contest with anything less than life. [Loud cheers.] In the great battle lately fought — the battle of Davis, Beauregard and Johnston — our men exhibited a foretaste of what Lincoln's menials may expect in every contest that is to follow. Any set of raw troops who can, with nothing but bowie knives, charge upon the bayonets of regulars, as our men did in the late battle, can never be whipped. There is no instance upon record where raw recruits were known to make such bold, daring, slashing charges right up to the mouths of cannon, manned by veterans, and take them, as did our men on that occasion<
From Gloucester Point. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Fort Brown, Gloucester Point, July 22 1861. To-day has been a day of rejoicing. Military enthusiasm is at its height. When the news of the victory of Davis, Beauregard and Johnston combined — the mighty trio of warriors-- reached us, there was cheering among us all; each congratulating the other upon the success of our Southern forces. Eleven guns were fired in honor of the victory, one for each of the States of our glorious Confederacy, the last of which was fled by the Colonel of this post, Chas. A. Crumpt. The largest battle ever fought on the American continent has been decided to the honor and glory of the brave sons of the South. But how else can it be when our soldiers are cheered on by the many blessings and favors of the fair sex of the Old Dominion. For when beauty declares her preference and asserts her away, men, too, must leap to her assistance and rescue and defend her cause. N
uit at Manassas. We are permitted to publish the following letter from a member of the Albemarle Light Horse, (Capt. Eugene Davis,) which was engaged in the battle at Manassas Plains: Manassas Junction, July 24. Amid your rejoicingshey had in custody. At this point, the Major remained until joined by Lieut. Geiger, with his platoon, and finally by Capt. Davis, (with the rest of the company,) who had also been subsequently sent in advance of Kershaw to reconnoitre, and had capy to anybody. I believe one of our horses did get a few buck-shot in the leg. During the absence of this party, Captain Davis began to discover the nature and value of the prize, and proceeded to disengage and send back the cannon. Seeing howing that we numbered not over fifty, and were far in advance of our own men, and a very short distance from the enemy, Capt. Davis sent Lieut. Randolph back for reinforcements, and he returned with a body of cavalry and some infantry, with whose ass

All young, all unmarried, all gentlemen, there was not one of the killed who was not an ornament to his community and freighted with brilliant promise. In sending them to Virginia, Savannah sent her best to represent her, and their loss proves how well that stood up, how well that city was represented upon a field where all were brave. This company was the first one to offer its services to President Davis under the Confederate act authorizing him to receive independent companies, and had the honor of being the first received. They left home in disobedience to the orders of their Governor, and brought away their arms in defiance of his authority, so eager were they to go where our country needed her best soldiers. They were one of the two companies that took Fort Pulaski. When there was a riot expected in Savannah, early in the year, they were called out to quell it, with another c
