k by the either in a mantle with which the army officials have their operations. By this time Halleck is "weeping, walling, and gashing his teeth," with chagrin at having been so completely filled.d the result of a failure would have been disastrous in the extreme. Now, however, we have Halleck in our tolls. The picture is reversed. We have fallen back out of the woods into open fields.of our men will be much improved. In a military point of view, our advantages are that. while Halleck is compelled to follow, or relinquish the pursuit altogether, he can no longer do so under covetion in the North and West against the cautious, ditching. dillydallying old woman's policy of Halleck, which has deprived them of the privilege of fighting the Confederates behind their entrenchmenloses some of its interest in consequence of delay, we publish it, because it disclosed some facts not generally known and stamps Halleck's dispatches from Corinth with falsehood-- Eds.

Unfounded reports. --We have conversed with gentlemen recently from the neighborhood of Corinth, and they assure us there can be absolutely no foundation for the statement made by Gen. Halleck to the Yankee of War, that he had captured 10,000 Confederates and 15,000 stand of arms from our army — In retiring from Corinth our army saved all of its small arms, and as there has been no appointment since that event there is no probability that men have captured any considerable number in any other way. As to the prisoners there can be no other foundation for the report them the fact that in the recent dash of the enemy on Boonville, where several thousand or our sick were stationed, they did virturtualty hold them as prisoners for the space of perhaps half an hour. These are all the prisoners Halleck has taken recently, and it has sent the dispatch alluded to it must have been because he was anxious to deserve the title given him by the New York correspondent of the London Herald--
is no longer possible to use with effect. It ought to be a source of great encouragement to the South to find that they are confronted with an adversary whose courage it requires such extraordinary stimulants to screw and keep to the sticking point. The Yankee imagination is very poor in those arts which depend principally upon the exercise of that faculty. They have had several thousand writers of rhyme and blank verse, but not a single poet, so far as we remember, with the exception of Halleck and Bryant. The have had painters and sculptors out of number — men who could draw a horse or carve a man out of marble — but there is scarcely a man among the whole number who seems to have had the slightest glimpse of the ideal. The inventive faculty is strong in them all, but the inventive power is totally wanting. If a great invention is brought to light in the mechanical world, they steal it. If a highly original work is published in England, they imitate it, or rather appropriate i
ry and wood work were of the strongest and most approved kind. It is reported that a portion of the army has fallen down to Sallillo, the next station below Guntown, on the Mobile and Ohio 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 better than that Hallock should remain at Corinth for two months. It would be equivalent to a loss to him of 30,000 men. The South Carolina
passed amid the usual sights and sounds of an encampment. The news from glorious "Old Stanewall" has revived and cheered us, and the heart-nerve of every Virginian vibrates with delighted pride in his achievements, and hopes he will rescue Baltimore and frighten the miscreant wretches out of Washington. Morgan is here; a quiet, modest, gentlemanly man. He goes with a flag of truce, to show the Yankees he is here, and probably in three days will be in Kentucky! Two Surgeons, returned from Halleck's army, report that it is there believed the French have acknowledged the Confederacy. The fact, too, is established, that some of our soldiers, prisoners, had been sent back with the small pox, in order to spread the disease among our troops. What a precious set of wretches we have to deal with, to be sure! The day has been uneventful, except my cordial greetings with Col. Bates's regiment, (2d Tennessee,) which was the first to come to Fredericksburg, and which won so many friends and
