r resignations, to enter the Confederate service. They have gone to Richmond. Look out for him. Dr. A. Blaisdell, a Yankee Dentist, who for several months past has been suspected as an Abolitionist and enemy to the South. was apprehended by the Cars well Guards, for uttering disrespectful language at the public speaking during their encampment, and, after a decent ride upon a large pine rail, was drummed out of the camp, and ordered to leave the Southern Confederacy. The said Dr. A. Blaisdell left Wilkinson county, Georgia, on the 3d of August, with his wife and one child, and if he is still lurking in any part of the Southern Confederacy, he may be recognized by the following description: He is very tall, large and bony, being over six feet high, with large square shoulders, long nose, large mouth, angular features, blue or light grey eyes, auburn hair, tolerably thin beard, and a quick and pleasant address. Citizen of Wilkinson. Irwinton, Ga., Aug. 13, 1861.
Important from Arizona. The Mesilla Times, of the 3d of August, gives the subjoined account of the capture of U. S. troops, already announced by telegraph: The United States forces in New Mexico were thirty-six companies--fourteen mounted and twenty-two foot. Of these eleven have been taken prisoners and four others are in the power of the Southern forces, leaving twelve infantry and nine mounted at large.--About half of these are at Forts Staunton, Oraig and Albuquerque, and the remainder are scattered at different points a hundred miles apart and distant from the Arizona frontier. A Confederate force has gone to attack Forts Wise and Garland, and a few weeks will probably show a capture of the whole force of this department. Their supplies from the United States are already cut off. The confidential orders to Major Lynde from the commander of the Department of New Mexico are in substance, that the whole regular force of the department had been ordered to the State
n Confederacy would soon be recognized, made during his short stay in this city, attracted attention and led to his arrest. He is now imprisoned at Fort Lafayette. Among the papers found upon Muir was a letter bearing date at Charleston, August 3d, signed by Morris Seligman. The writer says that he knows pretty well what is unknown to the public; that he writes the commercial reports of the English Consul to his Government at home; that he has seen Russell's letter about the battle, and, the very important question arises whether the allegations of this letter are true; because, if they are, no doubt whatever remains that Lord Lyons and Mr. Russell are both with the South and against the North in this war. The letter is dated August 3. Muir was arrested in Jersey City, August 14, and Mr. Seligman's letter was at that time in his possession. Mr. Russell's letter was published in the London Times of August 7, and did not reach this city until the 19th--five days after Mr. Sel
Martial law proclaimed in Missouri. St. Louis, Aug. 31. --Gen. Fremont has proclaim red that the State of Missouri is under martial law Persons found with arms in their hand a will be court-martialed and shot. The property, personal and real, of persons who take up arms against the Federal Government will be confiscated, and their slave declared freemen. The people are warned to return to their homes, and their absence without sufficient cause will be considered presumptive evidence against the absentees. The Provost Marshal, Mr. McKausley, forbids all persons from passing out of the country without a pass. At Rolla a skirmish is reported to have occurred between Montgomery, of Kansas notoriety, and Gen. Raines.
ughly understood by every successful leader. The art of "attack" and "defence"--when to do the one or the other, and how to do so with the least possible loss and with the most destructive effect to the enemy — is a "gift" which but few men naturally possess; indeed, so few that they are not met with more than "once in a lifetime." Nor will this necessary preparation, of itself, accomplish much for a commander, unless accompanied by prominent traits of character — such as good old-fashioned "mother wit," bravery, and prudence. These, I believe, are all possessed by our friend in quantum sufficit--or, to speak in plain English, "enough to do,"--and I should have no hesitation in placing myself under his leadership in the day of battle. I have known Col. Presion from boyhood, and have ever found him kind-hearted, high-minded and honorable — none more so — and pronounce him to be one of the best field officers in South western Virginia. Yours, Scott.

earn the names of the unfortunate ones. From Texas. The Houston Telegraph, of the 16th, says: We understand the first two regiments of Sibley's brigade are now full. The third is forming. All companies that offer, up to five thousand men, will probably be accepted. Governor J. W. Henderson has withdrawn from the canvass for Congress in the Third District. Under the head of "the oldest inhabitant gone," the Houston Telegraph has the following: Died, on the 3d of August, at the residence of Jas. Berry, in this county, James Strange, (Uncle Jimmy,) aged seventy-six years. He was a native of South Carolina; served seven years in the United States army; and participated in the battle of New Orleans, January 8, 1815; was a soldier in the Texas revolution, and regretted he was not young enough to take part in the present struggle, observing:"Had the South acted when she ought, I would have been."

From the North. Concentration of Confederates on James river — a Confederate Dash on Gloucester — capture of a Confederate mail Carrier, &c. Petersburg, Aug. 3. --New York and Philadelphia dates of the 28th and 29th ult. have been received. The Fortress Monroe correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer says he is credibly informed that large rebel forces are concentrating on the line of James river, above the junction of the Appomattox and the James, supposed to number between fifty and seventy thousand, and "Stonewall" Jackson in command. On the night of the 24th ult, a company of rebel cavalry dashed down on Gloucester Point, opposite Yorktown, and carried off a large lot of "contrabands," forced into the rebel army all the male inhabitants, and then set fire to a lot of ship timber, and taking with them the trophies departed. Similar depredations were committed in the vicinity of Williamsburg on the night of the 25th. The rebels made incursions i

Villipelgne advanced and occupied Lagrange, Tenn, but subsequently returned to Abbeville. The Yankees were advancing on Holly Springs, and were expected to occupy that place to-day. Gen.
