e grand result is, the possession of a half-Yankee fled and exposed portion of Virginia; of a part of Kentucky voluntarily surrendered to them by the treachery of a act of disgraced politicians and timid property holders; and of those regions of Missouri where the "Union" sentiment was strong enough to prevent the military organization of the true Southern people. They have conquered nothing. They hold no part of our soil, except that which our people surrendered into their hands. They have wdeception have accomplished for them what their valor could not. Nay, they have lost ground; for whereas they felt secure of Kentucky, that State, after hard fighting, is sure now to be ours; and whereas they thought they had effectually overrun Missouri, they find the indomitable spirit of that people unconquerable, and that they have suffered their severest reverses in the very State which they thought most surely their own. The South, on the other hand, commenced the campaign, proposing
es, and his masterly depletion of the Federal treasury, he has rendered in calculable service to the Confederate cause. As a native of Virginia, we felt proud on Fremont, and hoped he would be spared to demonstrate that in every department of human enterprise the Old Dominion can surpass all competition. Having produced in Scot "the greatest coward in the world," we indulged a pleasing anticipation that Virginia could claim in Fremont such a capper and miner of a public treasury as mankind had never seen Virginia never gives birth to ordinary public characters. They are like the prophet's figs the good, very good, and the had, very had Fremont owes it to his native State not to retire altogether from political affairs.

State. We shall await further news with great solicitude. The Waterloo of the West. The Banner of Peace, published in Memphis, Tenn., has received a letter from a chaplain in McCulloch's army, from which the following extract is made. It is the latest and most reliable information we have of the movements of the army in the West. The letter is dated Oct. 22d. "The time has come when every man ought to bear his part in the defence of our common right. Our latest news from Missouri is of the most startling character. A dispatch from General McCulloch, from Neosho, says that he has information from an undoubted source, that the Federal army is South of Springfield, and is marching rapidly towards Fayetteville, Arkansas. General Price has fallen back to Neosho, and he and McCulloch had united their forces, which are estimated at 37,000 men. They are falling back into this State, and intend to make a stand at a point called the Cross Hollows, 17 miles North of Fayettev
The victory in the West. The telegraph brings intelligence of a great battle in the West, in which the enemy, in vastly superior numbers, was defeated and driven back with immense slaughter. Belmont, the locality of this battle, is in Missouri, opposite the town of Columbus, Ky.--To prevent operations against our batteries at the latter place, a small force of 2,500 men was stationed across the Mississippi river, at Belmont, and it appears that the purpose of the enemy was to drive them from the position and occupy it, by which a strategic point of no small importance would have been gained. The Federal force therefore started from Cairo in gun-boats and transports, and approached to a point seven miles above Columbus, where a bend in the river afforded an opportunity for a stealthy landing. Here they disembarked and marched down upon Belmont, and attacked Gen. Pillow; but notwithstanding the great disparity in numbers, they were held in check for two hours, until our boats cr
