I feel myself called upon to contradict such statements as have appeared in Northern papers, representing the treatment of our wounded in an unfavorable light. Nothing could exceed the kindness and attention, both of citizens and soldiers, that have fallen under my personal observation since the eventful 21st ult. It gives me pleasure to award to the surgeons of the 1st Virginia Regiment, Drs. Cullen and Maury, and Dr. Alexander of this village, that praise to which they are justly entitled. They have been unremitting in their attentions. With much respect, I remain, yours truly, &c., Richard Dunne, A member of the 69. This confirms a fact of which we were fully aware, that the Yankee doctors deserted their wounded, and left them to the merciful attentions of the Confederates, or to perish upon the field where they had fallen.

The Delavan Hospital. Mrs. Jesse L.

Mrs. Maury states that in one week she received eight large boxes, addressed to her care, and enumerates a great amount of supplies of the most useful kind, from ladies of Alabama. This is another instance of the solicitude felt throughout the South for the welfare of the sick and wounded soldiers.

Among the prisoners is Dr. Maury, a son of ex-Mayor Maury, of Washington, a surgeon in the rebel army.

A Lieutenant of the 14th Louisiana regiment, (New Orleans Tigers,) is also a prisoner, with a large number of other commissioned officers. It was currently reported here before the fight that the battle would take place in the town, and it was on this account that many of the inhabitants fled who would not otherwise have left. They are beginning to return, but show their secession feelings. Two Union men of the town have held out throughout the whole reign of secessionism as Union men.--For this they have been subjected to indignities of every kind, from insulting words to personal attacks upon them in their houses.

and cherished nursery of his native State after full academical preparation, and graduated with distinguished honors from the University of North Carolina in 1843. President Polk, a native of North Carolina, and an alumnus of this University, attended this Commencement with members of his Cabinet and other distinguished citizens. The orator of the Literary Societies was John Y. Mason, Secretary of the Navy, and afterwards Minister to France Among the scientific visitors and guests was Professor Maury, who was so favorably and deeply impressed with the gifts and acquirements of the young graduate that he engaged him for the Mathematical Chair of the Observatory in Washington. Mr. Pettigrew remained in Washington until 1848, when he removed to Charleston, and completed, under the tuition of his distinguished relative and fatherly friend, J. L. Paugrn, the legal studies he had commenced. He was admitted to bar and proceeded to Europe for study, observation, and improvement. He p
we cannot recall to mind, and it has been suggested to us that Savage, of Tennessee, is meant. With Buckner our readers are familiar. It is rumored he has been made a Major General. There is little doubt that he commands a division of this army, organized to penetrate a country with which he is intimately acquainted, and in which, it were useless to deny, he has a widespread and evil influence over certain classes of people. Cheatham, of Tennessee, Atolerson, of Pensacola notoriety, and Maury, of Tennessee. have divisions in Polk's corps. With the two corps of this army thus organized under Hardee Polk, and Bragg, on or about the 22d of August, crossed the Tennessee river to Harrison, a few miles above Chattanooga, the stream at that point being easily forded. On the evening of the 27th of August he had marched westward by the Mountain road to Dunlop.

The slaughter on both sides is described as unparalleled. One of our Generals writes that Maury's division, composed of Phifer's, Cabell's, and perhaps Morris brigades, will not muster more thmile, when he was reinforced by Whitfield's Legion and a section of artillery, and afterwards by Maury's division, which was also reinforced; but the whole of the force proved insufficient, and was driven back — the enemy burning the bridge, and trapping Maury's brigade and four pieces of artillery. Van Dornand Villipigue coming up relieved Maury and captured a brigade of their captors, andMaury and captured a brigade of their captors, and thirteen pieces of artillery.
