"Immortal heir of universal praise, Nations unborn your mighty name shall sound. And worlds applaud that most not yet be found." poet We have much reason to thank Divine Providence that President Davis, both an able statesman and a valiant warrior, governs the helm of State in this most critical conjuncture, great in the war and great in arts of sway. Our armies are tied on by a galaxy of excellent commanders — McCulloch, Mcgruder, Johnston, Lee, Pillow, and last, but first of all. Beauregard, in whose hand our Northern foe may shortly find the conquering a word of Themistocles or Scythian Tamerlane. "May our banner bright, still float in light, when ages pass away, Good men shall ban the fiendish can, invading as to-day." At the conclusion of the address, three cheers were given for Father McMahon, that would have fitted the air had they been raised outside beneath the azure vault of Heaved; three for President Davis, three for the Captain and three for the ladies of

lps; but, having advance I so far, will they tell us why did he not advance farther? If he crossed the principal mountain ranges of Virginia, and penetrated within fifty miles of the centre of the State, with nothing interfering between his thirty-six thousand men and Staunton but a few thousand of Garnett's army, why did he not advance and seize it? or, if that did not suit him, why did he not direct, his column towards Winchester, and prevent Johnston from leaving that position to join Beauregard at Manassas? Instead of this, which would have shown a real General, the first we hear of him after his boasted success in the West, is that he has gone to see his wife in Cincinnati. When we read the report, we took it for granted, of course, that it was a Yankee fabrication, and that McClellan was in full march to grasp the fruits of his success. But it turns out to have been true, and it is this fact which we leave to his eulogists to explain at their leisure that, with a better oppo
Yankee humanity. --The Lynchburg Virginian, commenting upon Gen. Beauregard's noble reply to Arnold Harris, (who applied for permission to pass our lines in quest of the body of Col. Cameron,) says: This is exactly the course that ought to have been pursued. It is the policy observed by Washington when, under somewhat similar circumstances, Sir Henry Clinton wished to treat with him as Mr. Washington. The noble old Virginian would respond to no message that did not recognize the validity of the official title he held by authority of Congress. And Mr Cameron will be brought to this acknowledgment ere long. There is an intimation in the note of Gen Beauregard that " humanity should teach an enemy to care for its wounded, and Christianity to bury its dead"--two things that the Hessians have not done. No flag of truce from the Government or any general officer has been sent to look after the dead and wounded. Those of the former that were buried, after our dead had been
readful defeat would have been given us. That their loss must be appalling; that the blow will so effectually disorganize their army, which was dissatisfied and shattered before, that they cannot, if they would, again assume the offensive; that Beauregard and Johnston are among the first commanders of the age, and their army, whilst fighting in the defence, must always prove invincible." While those for whom Beauregard and Johnston and their heroic companions are so manfully exerting themsethose for whom Beauregard and Johnston and their heroic companions are so manfully exerting themselves will appreciate the force and truth of the compliment paid them, they hope yet to see our army as invincible in offence as defence. When Col. Corcoran and such as he are reflecting on the disadvantages that attend their sojourn here, it is to be hoped that their ire will be mitigated against us when they reflect that it is all rendered necessary by the policy of Abe Lincoln, whom they serve.
e exhausted. For several days previous to Gen. Scott's advance, we had observed great activity on the Potomac. Gen. Beauregard doubtless understood them, but to the army and general observer they seemed only suspicious.--The chief mystery abou hour when all this grand scheme was to be carried into effect. It is probable that Gen. Scott saw at last that Gens. Beauregard and Johnston had found out his plans; he probably saw, moreover, that his plans might by no means work well; that in fact Gen. Johnston had it in his power to be with Beauregard hours before Patterson could be before Fairfax. It was in consequence of this that just before the advance Scott ordered Patterson to engage Johnston near Winchester at any odds and a"rebellion." It is probable even that the movements of McClellan in the Northwest were principally designed to deceive Beauregard here, and so far as possible to play into the hands of General Scott here. The Federalists certainly cannot have expec
