, and Capt. Thompson's Indiana battery, also the Third battalion Fifth Ohio cavalry, Major C. T. Hayes, and the Third battalion Eleventh Illinois cavalry, Major James F. Johnson. Hearing heavy and continuous cannonading in the direction of Pittsburgh Landing, early Sunday morning, I inferred a general battle, and in anticipatio force of one hundred thousand men ; A. S. Johnston, killed โ€” body found on the field โ€” Beauregard, Hardee, Bragg, and Polk, being their Commanding Generals. Governor Johnson, Provisional Governor of Kentucky, is a prisoner in our hands mortally wounded. Loss severe on both sides โ€” ours probably ten thousand. The rebels sufferedf the hottest fire. Accidentally in command of the brigade, as ranking officer on duty, I disclaim any credit for its brilliant success. Unfortunately Brigadier-Gen. Johnson was at home, prostrated by sickness; but to the thorough discipline and rigid study exacted by him of officers and men, we are indebted for that success a<

the afternoon.-- Wm. Graves, James M. Ragland, James F. Stone and Frank Brigarri, of Liberty, G. T. Akers, of Lynchburg, and Wm. Willis, messenger of Adams' Express Company between Lynchburg and Knoxville, testified in regard to the receipt of South Carolina money like that passed to parties in Richmond, connecting the prisoners with the transactions in every instance. This closed the evidence for the Commonwealth. Judge Crump, counsel for Chilton, introduced but one witness, James F. Johnson, Senator from Bedford county, who testified that he had known the prisoner from childhood; that his character previous to this occurrence was excellent, and that his conduct had always been most exemplary in every respect. He was at this time about 17 years of age, and had for several months previous to this affair been employed as agent of Adams' Express, and as telegraph operator at Liberty, a position of considerable responsibility. Riddell then requested the Mayor to send to t
Superstition. Dr. Johnson, we believe, or some other critic, has told us that if a poet were, in his day, to introduce witches and fairies into a play as Shakespeare did, he would be laughed at, and that their introduction into Macbeth and the Midsummer Night's Dream, was only tolerated because the people of the day in which they were written universally believed in the existence of both the supernatural phenomena in question. With all due reverence be it spoken, we doubt the truth of thour minds by the tales of the nursery. Set it in opposition to our imagination, and the struggle produces a sort of twilight of the mind, in which we half believe and half discredit, and which lasts through the remainder of our lives. Whatever Johnson may have thought or said to the contrary, there is a vein of superstition running through the human mind just as perceptibly now as in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. He, himself, though undoubtedly a powerful reasoner, believed in the Cock Lane g
h she complains, as to the remedy and its application before a resort to other measures of redress; and Whereas, it is desirable to give expression to that intention which really exists among all the members of the Convention to sustain the State in the course of action which she has pronounced to be proper for the occasion: Therefore, Resolved, That all the members of the Convention, including those who voted against the Ordinance as well as those who voted for it, will sign the same as a pledge of the unanimous determination of this Convention to sustain and defend the State in this our course of remedy with all its responsibilities, without regard to individual approval or disapproval. Its adoption of the Ordinance was signed by all except about a dozen delegates, and those, it is believed, will sign to-morrow. A. H. Stephens, Lintin Stephens, Governor Johnson, and other friends, signed the Ordinance. A demonstration on a grand scale is going on to-night.

Trial commenced. --David S. Chilton, young white man, a former resident of Liberty, Bedford county, was put on trial yesterday before Judge Lyons, of the Hustings Court, for having in his possession and passing counterfeit bank notes purporting to be issued by the Bank of South Carolina. Hon. Wm. L. Goggin, Jas. F. Johnson, Esq., (of the State Senate,) and Judge Wm. W. Crump appeared for the defence. Littleton Tazewell for the Commonwealth.
ritten by the Secretary, denying that any such order for the removal of guns had been issued, a letter was written to Mr. A. M. Barbour, of the Convention, by Capt. Kingsbury, of the Ordnance Department, informing him that, by direction of Col. Craig, the order for the removal of the guns had been countermanded. How could an order be countermanded that never had been given? The Ordnance Bureau is a part of the organization of the War Department. Is General Cameron so ignorant of his duties as not to know what has been done in one of the subordinate Bureaus of his department, or is this a deliberate misrepresentation intended to operate on and influence the action of the Virginia Legislature? A letter from Quartermaster Gen. Johnson, to Messrs. W. D. Colquitt & Co., dated 22d March, states that an agent of the Ordnance Department would deliver to them fifty cannon, which they were directed to forward immediately to Lieut. Taylor, at Fort Monroe, who would pay all charges.
Discharged. --David S. Chilton, arrested several months ago, in company with Albert L. Riddell, (who lately broke out of jail and escaped from the Commonwealth,) charged with passing counterfeit bank notes, and who was acquitted on one of three indictments pending against him for that offence, on a trial before Judge Wm. H. Lyons, of the Hustings Court, was yesterday brought before the Court, and, the Judge consenting, the Commonwealth's Attorney entered a nolle prosequi in the two remaining indictments, and the prisoner was discharged. His father, a respectable citizen of Liberty, Bedford county, was present, and on the announcement of the happy termination of the affair, shed tears copiously, as did also the prisoner, and sundry sympathizing bystanders. Young Chilton was defended on his first arraignment by Hon. Wm. L. Goggin, Jas. F. Johnson, of the State Senate, and Judge Crump, of this city.
