lming defeat, upon the public mind in that section. While much of it is untrue, enough is apparent to show that they begin to have some idea of Southern bravery and prowess. We commence one narration with accounts from the Baltimore papers of June 12th, which are, indeed, more nearly accurate than any that follow; although the "Associated Press" narrative, revised by Gen. Butler, is a weak attempt to gloss over a disastrous event: [From the Baltimore Sun, June 12th.] Old Point, June June 12th.] Old Point, June 10, 1861.--At a late hour on Sunday night Gen. Pierce, left with about five thousand men, a part of which consisted of a German regiment (Col. Benedict) from New York, and one of the Albany regiments, (Col. Townsend.) and the Zouave Regiment, Col. Duryea. The column was divided, and before reaching the Great Bethel bridge they met, and mistaking each other for the enemy, began a fight. The Albany regiment soon gave way and ran. Two were killed and nine wounded.--The mistake was then discov

n field fight, where they are confident they could drive them to the four winds. A Brigadier General is badly needed at the Newport News camp, where five regiments are stationed, and no recognized authorized local commander. The Richest of all. The following appears in some of the New York papers. It was evidently designed to remove from the public mind, by the publication of this monstrous lie, the sting of defeat; for there is no trick to which the New York journals will not descend: Late and Highly Important — Capture of the Rebel Batteries at Great Bethel by Gen Butler--One Thousand Rebel Prisoners Taken! Washington,June 12--1 A. M. A special messenger arrived an hour since from Fortress Monroe, bringing the intelligence that Gen. Butler this morning proceeded, with a large reinforcement, to Great Bethel, and after a severe fight, captured their batteries, one of seven, and the masked battery of fourteen guns, and also took one thousand rebel prisoners.
Comments of the Northern Press. [From the Baltimore Exchange, June 12] General Butler has already received a foretaste of the work that is before him. His first exploit of capturing a pump was happily conceived and heroically executed. His success in seizing and confiscating stray Negroes as "contraband of war" was equally great. Animated to fresh exertions by these most astounding achievements, and desirous of wreathing his victorious brows with laurels of a less questionable kind, he finally concluded to set out in search of new adventures.--As, however, the risk in capturing slaves was far less than what might be expected in an attempt to capture their former masters, Brigadier General Butler wisely determined to ensconce himself safely behind the walls of Fortress Monroe, and to leave to General Pierce and his subordinate officers all the perils attendant upon the new conquest, of which he felt certain of being adroit enough to monopolize all the glory.--Alas, for Brigadie

The Tory Convention. --This body, in which, (the Northern papers say,) forty counties were represented, met at Wheeling on the 11th inst. Arthur J. Boreman was chosen permanent chairman. The following dispatch tells us what was done on the second day: Wheeling, June 12, P. M.--This afternoon a committee of thirteen was appointed to prepare business for the Convention. Resolutions were submitted for the separation of Western Virginia from the State, and the formation of a new State, the preparatory arrangements to be submitted to a Legislature, to be convened in this city. This mode is preferred, in order to avoid a burthensome State debt, which Western Virginia had no part in incurring.
