to the constitutional Commander in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, the only officer having control of the prisoners. To this end I dispatched an officer to him, under a flag of truce; and in making the proposal of informed President Lincoln of my resolute purpose to check all barbarities on prisoners of war, by such severity of retaliation on the prisoners held by us as should secure the abandonment of the practice. This communication was received and read by the officer in command of the Army of the United States, and a message was brought from him by the bearer of my communication, that a reply would be returned by President Lincoln as soon as possible. I earnestly hope that this promised reply, which has not yet been received, will convey the assurance that prisoners of war will be treated in this unhappy contest with that regard to humanity which has made such conspicuous progress in the conduct of modern warfare. As a measure of precaution, however
gement had become general, and that a terrific battle was progressing. Private dispatches of the most reliable character were received at a late hour in the evening, informing us that the attack was made by our forces about four o'clock, in consequence of an attempt of the enemy to throw up breastworks under the disguise of burying their lead. In the general engagement President Davis led the centre, Gen. Beauregard the right wing, and Gen. Johnston the left wing of our army. The Lincoln army was completely routed. Hampton's Legion suffered considerable loss. Sherman's celebrated Battery of Light Artillery was taken by our troops. The fight was very severe and fatal on both sides. Among the prominent officers who are reported to have been killed are Col. Bartow, of Georgia; Gen. Ber, of South Carolina, Gen. Kiery Smith, and Col. Johnson, of the Hampton Legion. The following dispatch was received by Mrs. President Davis late last evening: "We have won a
From Cairo --Dissatisfaction Among Lincoln's Soldiers.--A correspondent of the St. Louis Republican, dated Cairo, Ill., July 14, says: If ever a set of men were badly treated, we, the soldiers here at Cairo, are the men. 1st. We have been here nearly three months without pay. 2d. We were told that we should serve under officers of our own election. Well, we elected Col. B. M. Prenties, Brigadier General of this Brigade, by a vote of 180 to 1 over Capt. Pope, and yet Capt. Pope has been appointed Brigadier General, and now actually ranks General Prentiss, and we may be at any moment transferred from the command of Gen. Prentiss to that of Gen. Pope. 4th. Governor Yates can go East twice, "making fine speeches and eating fine dinners. " He seems to have forgotten that there are 8,000 men here at Cairo, and has utterly neglected to give them one cent, although the Legislature of the State has voted $3,000,000 for us. 5th. Our rations have been very ba
Col. McNeil, who recently marched into the St. Louis State Journal office with 400 men, and suppressed the paper, was shortly after met on the street by Mr. Kaiser, a German citizen, and soundly thrashed. The Nashville Gazette asserts that Andrew Johnson has so far recovered from the wounds he received while making his escape from East Tennessee, as to be able to take his seat. The New York Times says that Hurlbut was turned off from that paper because he turned against the Republicans, but that if President Davis hangs him, a Southern officer must hang for him. The German population of London is 60,000. It is almost as difficult to recover a lost reputation as a lost umbrella. A fire at Milwaukie, Wiz., on the 13th inst. destroyed property to the amount of $25,000. Lincoln's blockade has stopped the cotton mills at Lewiston Falls, Me.

urnment of Congress, that little was to be brought before the attention of that body which had not been urged in the previous Message. Accordingly, the President has confined himself chiefly to a cutting rebuke of some of the positions taken by Lincoln in that functionary's late Message to the Northern Congress. The Message is admirably written, and is most just and severe in its allusions to the course of conduct pursued by the North in the war they are waging on us. We are glad to see tt sort. We shall capture from him many prisoners; and we shall, have it in our power to punish with inexorable rigor whatever enormities he may be guilty of in the future. We admire the firmness of tone with which President Davis has given Lincoln to understand his intentions in this regard. The occasion of the condemnation of our privateers in New York was admirably chosen for sending this admonition. If the cowardly Yankees shall dare to inflict judicial murder and ignominy upon those

Getting satisfaction. --We learn form a gentleman conversant with the affair, that on last Friday evening, five of the New Orleans Cadets, (lately under the command of Colonel Dreux,) started out on a scouting expedition near Newport News, and learning that six of Lincoln's hirelings were at a neighboring farm-house, "making merry," resolved to kill or take them prisoners. They waited for the scoundrels, who, on leaving the farm, separated, three going one way and three another.--They selected the three they wanted, and at the proper time fired on them, killing instantly one who proved to be an Abolition Major, mortally wounding a Captain, and breaking the wrist and taking captive a Lieutenant.--The latter will soon be sent to this city.

No pay for those who resign. --The officers of the Richmond who have resigned, seven in number, found that they have not only been stricken from the rolls of the Navy, but from the pay rolls. The Purser told them he had instructions not to pay them for their services. This is the latest Lincoln regulation.
The North Carolina State troops --The Raleigh (N. C.) Standard, of July 20, says: "We have begged that the volunteers of North Carolina now being enrolled, and who are equipping and drilling, will not disband. We are quite sure that the authorities will not disband them, for the reason that before the 20th of August it will be seen, if we do not mistake, that they will all be needed. Lincoln's forces must be checked in Virginia. They must never be allowed to invade North Carolina through Virginia; therefore North Carolina must render Virginia and President Davis all the aid in her power." Nobody who saw the splendid regiment which marched in Richmond yesterday could doubt that the Old North State was doing all she could. It was the 4th Regiment of State Troops, 1,100 strong, under Col. Anderson, splendidly armed and equipped, each individual in it looking every inch a hero. They went into camp near Howard's Grove. With such soldiers, we are all safe.
d of "Increase the army," declared that: "By an act of Congress and proclamation of the President, eleven new regiments, one of artillery, one of cavalry, nine of infantry of 2,300 men each, have been added to the United States army." Never was a more false statement put forth than by the declaration that "by an act of Congress" the regular army has been increased, and the editor of the Journal knew it to be a lie when he penned it. The increase of the army is one of the President's usurpations — a deliberate and wilful violation of his oath to support the Constitution; Congress has passed no such act — in fact, has not been in session since the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln. The increase was made in direct violation of the laws of Congress. This act alone should and would, in other times, cost the President his official head. What can be thought of a paper that will deliberately attempt to pawn upon the public such an unmitigated falsehood as truth.--Dayton Empir
