The enemy is already upon the soil of the South. They have taken armed possession of Maryland, and they have invaded Virginia. While I write, there are thousands of abolition troops in Alexandria, and thousands more upon James river, near Fortress Monroe. And still thousands more will come to profane with their nuhallowed feet the land which gave birth to Washington, Madison, Monroe and Jefferson. The North will soon have seventy-five thousand armed men in the field with the avowed purposewhere we can hear the sound of the enemy's morning and evening gun.

The battle at Bethel.official report of the Yankee General. The following report of Gen. Butler to his superior at Washington, was written on the evening of the day on which the battle was fought.

They have a great variety of modes of accounting for it, and no doubt each journalist could manage it better, if he had the personal direction of the affair. The "inordinate love of life" among the invaders is the most obvious explanation. Gen. Butler is highly complimented by the New York Herald, who styles him "the right man in the right place." About his being "the right man," we have our doubts, but that Fortress Monroe is "the right place" for the man whom Smith. of California, scared out of his boots at the Charleston Convention, there can be question.
