Latest News late from Winchester. Passengers who arrived on the Central cars yesterday, who left Winchester on Wednesday evening, report the retreat of General Patterson's command across the Potomac on the approach of General Johnston. It is further reported that of Col. Jackson's force of 4,500 which engaged Patterson's column on Tuesday, at, Falling Waters, near Martinsburg, there were six killed and twenty wounded, and it is believed there were about eighty of the enemy killed. The arrival of over forty prisoners at Winchester is confirmed. It seems useless to anticipate any pitched battle, as the enemy is apparently not disposed to give Gen. Johnston battle, at least on this side of the river. Their retreat looks very much like a ruse to draw our troops into Maryland. We publish this morning from the Baltimore Sun, of Wednesday, the Northern account of the engagement between Gen. Johnston's advance force and the Federalists under Gen. Patterson, on the 2d inst.

with no symbol on their flag but the Constitution in flounces, and their first act, upon obtaining the control of the Government, has been to rend it into fragments and trample upon every one of its provisions. No wonder that the leaders of the Abolition Society have announced that the ceremony of "burning the Constitution" will "this year be dispensed with!" They have made it as obsoleted as the laws of Lycurgus. The Executive chair, once occupied by Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, and Monroe, is desecrated, and a tyranny established tenfold worth then that which compelled our ancestors to throw off the yoke of George III, and the acts of whose advisers throw the memory of Lord North and his compeers into the shads. They have gone through the Constitution, article by article, and, violating every oath of office, perjuring their souls beyond redemption, dishonoring the very they hear, and making them, like that of Arnold, the symbols of treachery and perthy have tra
An Old. Veteran gone. --Capt. Wm. Hale died on the 26th ult., in this place, in his 66th year. A native of Virginia, he had resided in Huntsville for about forty- five years, sustaining ever the character of an honest, energetic man and a good citizen. He was a soldier tried and true in the war of 1812; served under Jackson in the Creek Indian war, and was in its battles; was at the taking of Pensacola; fought in the battle of New Orleans, and endured all the hardships of Coffee's brigade. An acceptable Mason and a pious Christian, his life exemplified the virtues and the faith of both. For years he suffered intense agony, yet his patient resignation continued until the end, which was in peace with the world and hope in his God. He was buried with military and masonic ceremonies, --Huntsvills (Ala) Adv.
The Daily Dispatch: July 5, 1861., [Electronic resource], Murder of a soldier in Memphis, Tenn (search)
Murder of a soldier in Memphis, Tenn --The Memphis Appeal, of Tuesday morning last, says: On Sunday afternoon two soldiers of Capt. Jackson's regiment of heavy artillery, now stationed at the fort at the foot of Jefferson street, entered a drinking place near the railroad crossing on the Raleigh road. One of the two, named Owen McCarty, finding that his companion had become helplessly intoxicated, took from him for safe keeping twenty-seven dollars he had about him. Three men who were in the place saw this, and after the soldiers had left the place they went up to them and demanded the money. On being refused by McCarty, one of them with a pistol shot him. The ball struck the heart and death was instantaneous. An attempt was made to take the money from the dead man's pocket, but two mounted soldiers coming up, they fled.--They were pursued, and one of the two, Chas. Philips, was arrested. Another of the party, James Barton, was arrested yesterday morning. The two men
Gen. Jackson's motto. --Those Yankees who are continually repeating the motto of Old Hickory, "the Union must and shall be preserved," should not forget the words he used on the same occasion. They are as follows: "But the Constitution cannot be maintained nor the Union preserved in opposition to public feeling, by the mere exertion of the coercive powers confined to the General Government. The foundations must be laid in the affections of the people — in the security it gives to life, liberty, character and property in every quarter of the country, and in the paternal attachment which the citizens of the several States bear to one another as members of one political family, mutually contributing to promote the happiness of each other."
days rations are to be taken in bulk. The Stars and Stripes were hoisted on a tree on the Virginia side of the river to day by a Marylander by the name of Sanders, in full view of the Confederate pickets. They did not fire upon him. Col. Jackson, with his force, lies back some distance, at Hekes' Run, three miles this side of Martinsburg, with about 3,000 men. The enemy were observed busily engaged in erecting breastworks immediately back of the heights, opposite Major Doubleday'ards. The whole of the Confederate forces at Martinsburg, consisting of four regiments of Infantry and one regiment of horse, were engaged in the action.--They had with them four pieces of artillery, partly rifled cannon, and were commanded by Gen. Jackson. The First City Troop, of Philadelphia, were assigned a position near the U. S. Cavalry, under Capt. Perkins, and behaved remarkably well. As far as known, the casualties on the Federal side are two killed and several wounded. Several o
