amusingly refers to Gen. Scott, then on a visit to Paris, to improve, if that were possible, his military knowledge and receive the congratulations of the world: "Of all the commanders then assembled in Paris, the most dissatisfied was the America. General Scott, since noted for his campaign in Mexico, who had been opposed to the English on the Canada frontier, had taken a fort or two, and was looked upon by his countrymen as a military star of the very first magnitude--second only to Jackson, and equal to any other warrior then exact. He had been sent to Europe to increase his military knowledge and study the art of war, and reached Paris fully convinced that all the great chiefs of the continental armies would hasten to greet and compliment him.

From the letter of our friend we learn that the advance of our army encountered just above Front Royal — and guarding the bridges over the Shenandoah — a Yankee force, consisting of three regiments of infantry, a few companies of cavalry, and two pieces of artillery. They were immediately charged by Wheat's Tiger Battalion and driven across the river.

Her gallant sons who have rushed to the standard of the Confederacy are worthy of the cherished memories which cluster around their State's Revolutionary history.

This grand and important triumph was achieved on Saturday. Gen Lee says in the beginning of his dispatch. "Yesterday Gen. Jackson penetrated to the rear of the enemy; and drove him to within one mile of Chancellorsville. This morning the battle wae in such an engagement, but was much less than that of the enemy. The whole country will be distressed to learn that Gen. Jackson is seriously wounded.
