han one-half with Price and Van-Dorn, and in and around New Orleans. This distribution would leave Mississippi 18,000, Tennessee 30,000 and Alabama 10,000, to make up the army at Island No.10, and at and around Corinth. We all remember how the force at Bowling Green was magnified last fall into 60,000, 80,000, and even 100,000 men; yet after Fort Donelson was supplied with 12 or 15 regiments from this point, the retreating military rabble that fled from Bowling Green on the approach of Buell, and that halted at Nashville only long enough to throw the people into panic and dismay, numbered, perhaps, less than 6,000 or 8,000. And so at Columbus, the reported strength of 40,000 dwindled into 12,000 or 15,000, when the defences at that point were abandoned. It is not prudent, of course, to underrate the force of the enemy at any given point or all points together. We have no inclination to do so. But it is not well to have the country kept in a state of unnecessary suspense b
Capt. Morgan. --The capture of the gallant partizan hero, Captain Morgan, has not yet been accomplished. He recently received information from a patriotic lady of a deep and well laid share to entrap him, as his capture divides the attention of Buell with the seizure of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. It is said the Federal General is haunted by dreams as ugly as those which shook sleep from the eyelids of the guilty Richard, and that he starts wildly from his numbers in full of fear, not of the apparition, but of the bodily presence of Morgan, as did "fell Pizarro," when the noble Peruvian sprung from inflicting a blow upon his sleeping foe. Morgan is all right. We shall hear from him anon.--Memphis Avalanches.
The battle of Shiloh.the news of the victory fully Confirmed.reported death of Gen. Buellvalor of our troops.&c., &c., &c., Mobile, April 10.--The latest intelligence from Corinth says that the Yankees were badly whipped. Our loss in killed and wounded is less than one thousand. We took nearly 3,000 prisoners. Their gunboa says that 500 of our cavalry had attacked the Federals, killing many, and capturing 48 prisoners. Passengers by the morning train assert, positively, that Gen. Buell was killed. Also, that a truce had been agreed to on both sides for two days to bury the dead. The enemy only attacked when reinforced, and every time we whipistible. Many of the rumors from the battle are unfounded. I send you only such reports as are deemed reliable. [The foregoing report of the death of Gen. Buell is doubtless much like the rumors brought so plentifully by "reliable passengers" from Manassas to Richmond last autumn. There is no official confirmation of t
The news from the Southwest. The telegraphic dispatch from Mobile, received yesterday morning by the Associated Press in his city, contained nothing reliable in addition to the news published in this paper, from our special correspondent, on Thursday morning. The report of the death of Gen. Buell, the Federal commander, is not believed. No intelligence confirming it has been received by any department of Government; and since there is direct telegraphic communication between Richmond and Corinth, the news would have reached here officially at the earliest moment. Nor do we place any faith in the statement about a conversation between Generals Beauregard and Prentice. Beauregard is not the man to be indulging in that style of intercourse with his captured foe. It is totally unlike anything that we have been accustomed to hear from his lips or to read from his pen.
Latest from the Southwest. Savannah, April 11.--A special dispatch to the Republican, from "P. W. A., at Corinth, says that on the 7th the enemy was reinforced by 7,000 men, and renewed the fight. The Confederates repulsed them twice. At 10 o'clock further reinforcements were brought up by Gen. Buell. The battle raged with varying fortune. Gens. Cheatham, Bowen and Clark were wounded. We took 2,000 prisoners. The loss on both sides was heavy. At nine o'clock P. M. the enemy was heavily reinforced, and Beauregard fell back. The Confederates fought two days, the enemy being constantly reinforced. On the 8th both sides were too badly worsted to renew the fight. April 10--The number of Confederates killed is much loss than was at first supposed. The number of wounded is comparatively slight. Prisoners are still arriving, nearly ,000 have already been brought in, including about 200 officers. The Confederates firmly hold their position. The men
