Marylanders, to the rescue! --We earnestly invite the attention of refugees from the State of old Maryland to the advertisement headed "Maryland Line." It will be seen that Capt. Edward Barry has been commissioned to raise a company of Marylanders to confront the despicable foe, and drive him back off the sacred soil of the old State, and thus redeem from thraldom their homes — all that is near and dear to the hearts of brave Marylanders. Those desirous of visiting their firesides under the flag of the invulnerable "Stonewall" Jackson, will do well to consult Capt. Barry. We can assure them it will be to their interest.
Yankee prisoners. --Seven Yankee prisoners including the Colonel of an Ohio regiment, who were captured by a detachment of Gen. Jackson's army, last week, west of Staunton, were brought to Richmond, yesterday evening on the Central train, and lodged in the C. S. military prison on Cary street.

Reliable information from the command of Gen. Jackson states that the fragment of Military's army, which escaped destruction at the battle of Sutlington Hill, had been reinforced by Fremont with four additional regiments, and had taken position four miles north of Franklin, in Fendleton county. The advance of Gen. Jackson's army was six miles south of that point, and still advancing on the enemy. It is thought a battle was imminent yesterday.

Lincoln, Seward & Co.--But, whilst we still advocate humane and civilized counsels even to our inhuman enemies, we wish them to understand that we know full well the whole secret of their ferocity, and how it could be so thoroughly tamed that their sharing and snapping hyenas would have been as peaceable and gentle as sheep Our own forbearance and humanity afford the explanation of their own ferocity. If we had met them from the beginning as Jackson, of Alexandria, met them at the threshold, and made this a war at once in which no quarter was to be asked or given, the truculent pack would have been the first to cry out for a contest upon the recognized principles of war. --Again we say, we invoke no such policy of extermination, except in retaliation, but, as retaliation, it will and ought to come when the enemy dare to execute their threats of visiting with capital punishment a single Southerner, be he leader or led.

is wounded. From Jackson's command. The Lynchburg Virginian, of yesterday, time alludes to a rumor which was current in the city on Tuesday: Intelligence was received from Jackson's army yesterday. By telegraph, to the office that Jackson had secured the passes of the Cheat Mountain, and had forces at Franklin Pendleton county, whereby the enemy's retreat had been cut off. They are represented as being in the most deplorable condition utterly broken up, having thrown away their arms and are wondering about the mountains without either food or arms. It is said that some five hundred of them were captured on Monday. Large quantities of ammunition taken from the enemy have been sent by Jackson to Staunton. A more utter discuss, fixture never happened to any army than the which has overtaken Milroy's forces. Operations in North Carolina. The Wellington Journal says: The reported landing of Yankee forces Swansboro', in Onelow county, turns out to have been
From the Valley District. Since General Jackson so handsomely defeated the invaders under the Federal hire ling Milroy, little has been allowed to transport of the movements of our forces in the Valley. From some cause or other, a more than usual caution with regard to operations in the quarter has existed. We noticed yesterday a report that the remnant of Milroy's army had been reinforced by Fremont, that the combined force had taken position in the neighborhood of Franklin, in Pendlethad been reinforced by Fremont, that the combined force had taken position in the neighborhood of Franklin, in Pendleton ty, and that it was probable a fight would near that point. Yesterday there were other rumors on the street relative to General Jackson's movements, which we do not deem it present to mention. We have every convenience that old "Stonewall" is ready for any movement the enemy may make; and we think it not unlikely that a few weeks will witness the enemy again before him.

It is asserted, and has been proven by eyewitnesses, that even the dogs cats, and rats, encountered on the march of this hords, were killed and eaten with a voraciousness that betokened variation. Indeed, they had no commissary and it is believed that their conduct was attributable to directions from their officers, who were totally unable to control them, these robberies and outranges are not those of a day, but are of daily occurrence, and they will continue until Jackson returns to sweep town the Valley, and the vandals be driven or across the Potomac. This is the prayer of every patriotic heart in the Valley, and if the Confederate Government be true to its delegations it will be done, and as speedily as the other movements of the army will admit its lady remarked to the writer, "Even the mountains look abashed and humiliated at the desecration of the lovely land they environ" Unless the Valley be cleared by fall of the Yankee vermin that infest it,
