The enemy Approaching! --By special courier from Romney, Hampshire county, we are informed that the Federal forces, to the number of 1,000, arrived in that town on Wednesday, at 12 o'clock, and took possession. A forward movement is hourly looked for, and Winchester is beyond question the next point to be advanced upon by the miserable mercenaries of a corrupt and profligate military dictator. Men of Frederick, arouse, and prepare to meet the invader of your soil. Your honor demands it. The sanctity of your homes, the protection due to your wives, your mothers and sisters, demands an instantaneous rally. By all the memories of the glorious past, by all the demands of the exigent present, and by all the hopes for a successful future, we conjure you to rally to the standard of your State, and prepare to give Lincoln's ruffians a warm reception.--Winchester Republican.
y have scrawled, with charred wood, the names of their respective hotels.--Thus there are the Palmetto Hotel, Brown's Hotel, Beauregard Hotel, and the Virginia, Confederate, and Marshall Houses. At the corner of the street is marked "Pennsylvania Avenue," and along the "Avenue" various signs of "Bar Room," "Good Eating and Drinking, Washing and Ironing." and other burlesque inscriptions are to be deciphered. The vigilance of our pickets, sentinels, and outposts is making and work with Lincoln's emissaries, but sufficient seems to have been communicated to his cabal to open their eyes to the magnitude of our preparations. I cannot speak of General Beauregard's arrangements hereabouts, but if ever there was a leader, since Bonaparte, who plumbed the military art, our General is that man. Rev. Father Bixio, of Alexandria, has arrived in camp, and is to celebrate mass on Sunday, and remain with the troops to minister to the spiritual wants of the soldiers of his persuasion.
The way it works. --Six Frenchmen, late members of the "Garibaldi Legion," whose arrival in Washington from New York, and welcome by the Abolition President, was recorded with such a flourish of trumpets recently, became disgusted with those with whom they were called on to associate in the prosecution of Lincoln's infamous crusade against the South, and took French leave of the "Legion," escaping into Maryland, below Fort Washington; thence into Virginia, near Fredericksburg, by crossing the Potomac. They arrived in Richmond yesterday via railroad, en route for Yorktown, to join the real Zouaves now stationed there, men who are fighting to uphold liberty, and not to put it down. These "deserters" will, no doubt, be warmly welcomed. They created a great sensation in Fredericksburg. The South may confidently look for the desertion of nearly all the foreigners whom the Abolitionists have induced to take up arms against it. This result may be looked for directly the men begin t

East Tennessee. --The majority against separation in East Tennessee is estimated at from 10,000 to 12,000. We are gratified to learn that there is now a wise determination to acquiesce in the will of the majority, and to resist Lincoln's "irrepressible conflict" of aggression to the last. None who know the sterling character of the people of that section would expect anything less of them in such a crisis as the present.--Memphis Bulletin.
e appearance of those imps into our town, who just walked in and took as quiet possession as if they had been born and bred in it. Of all cut throats, low-lived rascals, I think these take the lead. I knew I was bad before, but never once did I imagine that hatred, malice and murder could take such complete dominion of me, as when I, day after day, witnessed the pollution of our Virginia soil by the foot-prints of these Goths and Vandals. Our houses searched, citizens arrested, and one of Lincoln's detachments from the infernal regions forever marching under our eyes; and, withal, the Federal flag waving over the public buildings, while Yankee Doodle is being played incessantly. It is enough to drive one crazy. They've been domiciled at both of our country places, and each one have they destroyed. Windows and doors they break out, take the axe to every piece of furniture left in the house, my sewing machine included; they have torn up every article of clothing, sheets and cou
by the thousand, and have been ordered off as fast as transportation could be procured for them. A portion of the Irish Brigade left here yesterday evening for a post where it is likely they will have a chance at the would-be oppressors of the South at an early day. It is now pretty well ascertained that the change in schedule on the railroads connecting here, referred to in a previous letter, will take place on next Sunday. A shocking casualty occurred on the East Tennessee and Georgia Railroad last Friday morning, by the explosion of the boiler of a locomotive. Some three or four lives lost and several persons injured. The engineer and fireman were among the killed. The rest were soldiers. Neither names or particulars learned. A number of Missourian who were taken prisoners by Lincoln's Hessians have arrived here. A train, consisting of nineteen cars, from Montgomery, Ala., passed through here yesterday, with Government fixtures, appurtenances, &c. O. K.
Lincoln's message — War Policy. Washington, June 17. --President Lincoln is employed on his message to the Federal Congress, which meets on the 4th of July. It is stated that he strongly favors the present war and will call for a large additional force, to be entered as a reserve and be ordered to Washington. Lincoln's message — War Policy.

Impudence. --Smith Moody, slave of John P. Ballard, was carried before the Mayor yesterday, and ordered 39 lashes for using insolent, provoking and incendiary language in presence of Minerva Meredith. The witness in this case stepped into Walter Duke's shop, on Broad street, for some articles, and saw there four Negroes, including Moody, who was discussing, in an energetic style, the value of an Alexandria bank note. In the discussion, after indulging in some forcible expletives, he said that if such notes were not good now, they would be when Lincoln whipped the South, as he would do soon, having ten men to our one, &c.
hen they met here? It would, indeed; be a strange thing that such a place, so sustained and visited by the pride of the South, should be rendered odious by infidelity to the cause of the Southern people. Greenbrier is true, however, and has given the best proofs of her fealty. She has sent a number of companies to the field. These, with those now ready to join General Wise in his westward march, constitute nine companies mustered by this faithful old county, which, though for Union till Lincoln's proclamation, is now as true as steel to the cause and will make her deeds in the second great struggle for liberty historic. To-day the second company mustered from this locality, took its departure for Lewisburg, to await the advance of Gen. Wise. This company bears the name of the place, being called the. White Sulphur Rifle Company. It had been for several days drilled by Captain McCann, who commands it to Lewisburg, where it is turned over to Col. Davis, who is recruiting for
for our Colonels and Majors. We have (it is no use to conceal the fact,) a great mania for the epauletts and sword. Whether it is easier to go as Colonel, with a darkey to wait on one, and high pay, or whether we have more than our portion of stuff to be worked up into Colonels, this deponent sayeth not. Tennessee comes up all right, 70,000 majority for Secession. It is reported that Knoxville proper gives a Secession majority, and the county of Tom Nelson repudiates his union with Lincoln. All hail to the volunteer State! Report says, that Andy Johnson and Yankee Maynard have taken the "underground railroad North," via Ohio, whilst Etheridge, Lugg, Baxter, Temple, and "Speaker" Nat Taylor have gone to "look out," near Chattanooga, to cool off. Crops never looked better in the Southwest. Corn, oats, wheat and grass bid fair to be largely over an average crop. Some little rust has made its appearance in the wheat, but we hope it will not seriously damage the crop. S
