turday,) after severe fighting in the morning, he fell back upon hearing that 20,000 fresh troops were marching to gain his rear, carrying with him a part of the captured artillery. On Sunday, after a severe battle in retreat, the enemy captured Maury's brigade; but this capture seems to have been temporary; for we are told that Van-Dorn and Villepigue afterwards came up, and not only recaptured Maury's men, but took a whole brigade of their capture. Such is the substance of the telegram, whiMaury's men, but took a whole brigade of their capture. Such is the substance of the telegram, which adds that the enemy were driven back to Matamoras, and that our army resumed its march. The enemy, it seems, took four pieces of cannon, and we brought off a portion of the nine we had captured. The enemy claims 700 prisoners. The telegram claims that we brought off 350 from Corinth. If we have these, and the brigade we are said to have captured, the balance is in our favor.--The telegram says that we lost 5,000 men, and the enemy many more, and that our army is safe and reorganizing.

even expecting to obtain possession of the town without firing a gun. Their eyes were opened when they saw the serried ranks of the enemy prepared to receive them, and then they knew that a hard and bloody fight was at hand. Moore's brigade, of Maury's division, lead the advance, and the battle soon raged hot and furiously. The enemy fought well — better, it is said, than ever before in the West--but they could not withstand the furious charges of our gallant men, who steadily gained upon thn wounded in the breast, with only eight or ten men, who were all, he said, he had been able together of the regiment. The rest were either killed, wounded, prisoners, or had fallen by the way from weakness. On Sunday an order was sent to Gen. Maury to make a charge with his division, but this gallant officer was forced to reply that he had scarcely two regiments left for duty.

Captain Maury The mission of this distinguished Confederate citizen abroad, whatever it may be, could not have been confided to better hands. No man on this continent has as enviable a fame throughout the limits of the civilized world. His name is familiar as a household word in all the seats of science and all the courts of Christendom. The moral weight of his character is equal to the grand influence of his intellect. Wherever he goes be will make friends for his country and for himself.
g a fat salary and wielding a considerable patronage, and he offered Burnside a clerkship with a salary of two thousand dollars a year, which was accepted. The two friends were managing the affairs of the railway when the present war broke out, affording to both the chance of military glory, and to Burnside the hope of bettering his estate. They both obtained permanent positions, and have since been constantly before the public eye. Burnside's most intimate personal friends--Generals Heth, Maury, Field, and others — are on the Southern side fighting the battle of freedom and independence. On repeated occasions Burnside is said to have behaved with unexpected courtesy toward the Confederates, more especially in the Roanoke Island affair, where the lamented O. Jennings Wise was killed, and in his bearing toward non-combatant citizens of Fredericksburg and its neighborhood, one or two of whom he certainly discharged from arrest, though they had been apprehended by special order of
m Europe. The steamship City of Washington has arrived, with Liverpool dates to the 24th. The Liverpool Journal of Commerce says that the Government has issued orders warning the Alabama from British ports, and that if any more British property should be destroyed by her, the Government would destroy the Alabama. The London Times ridicules the idea that the Government would be held responsible for the acts of the Alabama. The Times publishes a strong secession latter from Commander Maury. He repudiates the idea of a re-union, and says the South is well supplied with arms, and is as determined as ever. He says that the customs receipts at Charleston were greater in July than for the corresponding month of the part ten years. It is semi-officially denied that M. Drouyn De L'Huys has spoken to foreign ministers of the advisability of mediation. The New York Herald, editorially, admits that Rosecrans lost 10,000 men, several hundred wagons, and thirty cannon.

om the volleys of Confederate invincible. I was glad to see them on the scene of their triumphs welcomed and welcoming their fellow-citizens.--It is right that the home of Washington should give cordial greeting to honored citizens from the home of Jefferson Davis. The Yankees, standing on the consecrated home of Washington's boyhood, fired on Southern soldiers at the grave of his mother. MaLaws's brave division slow a thousand of the miscreants, and partly expiated the offence by offering them a sacrifice at her tomb.

Federal Espionage in England. --The London Times comments at some length upon the operations of Federal spies and secret agents in England, dogging the footsteps of all parties, native or foreign, supposed to sympathize with the Confederacy. It is shown that these spies were instructed to "watch and find out" the persons with whom Lieut. Maury corresponded. The Federal agents were ordered to "out-buy any agents of the South, " especially in the purchase of ships under 1,000 tons register. The people of Lancashire are to be excited in favor of the North by speeches, pamphlets, and even by sermons. The masses are to be moved by the process of "wire pulling," and individuals are to be kept under surveillance by an extensive employment of detectives. One letter to these agents, dated Washington, expressly says: "If possible, get the parties who supply the Alabama. Bribe right and left" The Times only wonders that the North has not half a score of Alabamans on the seas, instead

. 10 Welford Place, are notoriously a rebel firm. Yet they know how to make a good thing out of their Confederate friends, for when the Confederate loan was at a premium, a few weeks ago, they prudently sold out their bonds, making as nice a speculation as ever gladdened the heart of a Wall street broker. James Spence is also a Confederate agent. Thomas Bold is a shipper of Liverpool whose name loyal Americans should learn. He it was who built the Virginia as a Confederate pirate, Lieut. Maury furnishing the funds. Chappell, Jones & Co., of 28 Chappell street, recruited the crew from the Seamen's Home, telling them they were wanted for a trading vessel bound for Singapore. Peter Denny, of Dumbarton, had a good deal to do with this pirate, which carries nine new guns. When off the north coast of France the Virginia or Japan, (for that is the name under which she cleared for Singapore,) received ammunition and arms brought her by the British steamer Atar, and her crew were inf

A letter from Rio Janeiro, of the 23d May, has reached New York: The Florida left Pernambuco May 12, and with her the late Federal brig Clarence, which she had taken. The latter has been armed with four guns and fifty men. This will be a valuable acquisition to our Navy, as she can always keep within the protection of the Florida. The Florida has destroyed nine vessels, some laden with flour from New York for the Brazils, previous to entering Pernambuco. Advices from Bathia, of the 29th May, report that the Alabama sailed hence May 21, and the Georgia, Com. Maury, which arrived at Bahia from the Clyde on the 13th May, left on the 22d.
