ossing, were instantly reinforced by troops of Gen. Hill's division. The nu field works and batteries opposed to their advance were assailed by our men in the coolest most nonchalant style imaginable, and while having the heavy masses of Federal infantry before were ably seconded by our heavy guns, which, with terrific noise, threw large shells thick and fast upon the enemy's chosen positions and camps, thus preventing our first forces from being overpowered by the swarming hordes of McClellan's hirelings. While these brilliant movements were progressing in the neighborhood of Meadow Bridge, our troops beyond the Mechanicsville Bridge formed a junction with them, thus forming a perfect cordon with others operating from the village of Mechanicsville itself. Our line being perfect, a general advance took place, but the brave Confederates had not progressed far ere they were encountered by the Federals in great force, and a terrific fight ensued; but onward pressed our infantry a
McClellan's camp. --An army correspondent of the Savannah Republican, alluding to the prospect of a long campaign before Richmond, consoles himself with the reflection that "the Yankees have possessions which raise the best crops of mosquitoes and the most cantankerous, active, and energetic agues, and deadliest malaria, of any localities occupied by the bellicose armies."
readers. We make up the following summary: The siege of Richmond. The movements of General McClellan absorb everything else in Washington. A majority in both Houses of Congress are unwilling to take any action on an adjournment until after Gen. McClellan strikes a final and decisive blow at Richmond. From all the indications received here, it appears very certain that he will be in the akes place. A dispatch from Washington (June 19) says there is no news of importance from McClellan's army. The work of siege was progressing steadily, and new advantages in position were beingction is given to a report which lead been going the rounds, of the serious indisposition of Gen. McClellan. The Philadelphia Inquirer says that a call has been or is about to be made for more trod the war tax--Pennsylvania being the first. An officer who has returned from the army of McClellan states that quite a number of the Surgeons belonging to the different regiments are totally in

McClellan ordered them to be expelled from the army, he showed his miserable jealousyl troops were actually chased into Richmond at the point of the bayonet! How McClellan must have blushed and sickened at seeing himself thus beaten at the only weapt of a newspaper correspondent like a mad dog at the sight of water. But McClellan should remember that every man has his trade, and that no one will think the t educated, by those who have made it the study and business of their lives. McClellan was trained at West Point, where his associates were generally men of chivalrattribute of a hero, and it remained a principle of honor among soldiers when McClellan was at West Point. Hence, it is obvious that he could not be expected to ent than these thoroughbred liars; artists, who have roused the jealousy-even of McClellan who, considering the disadvantages of an education among gentlemen, had prove

It is said that Romulus added four days to the month. When Numa changed the calendar, and made June the sixth month, he deprived it of one day, but it was again restored by Julius C├Žsar, and has ever since remained unaltered. The Saxons called it weyed-monath and vere-monath. The former title was bestowed because their cattle then weyed, or went to feed in the meadows; and the latter name, vere, signifies dry. In the poetic language of our Indians June is called the month of leaves, for then our forests display their richest foliage. Perhaps before it is ended Gen. McClellan may verify before our eyes the name the Red Man has given it. At any rate, as previously remarked, great events have occurred during this month in past times, and similar ones may happen in our day and generation.
