all able to bear arms. The four refugees state that they are natives of that section--one being an old farmer, named Gardy, and the others young men engaged in business near him. One of the young men has been actin as Confederate Postmaster at Kinsale. Southern sympathy in Baltimore. H. F. Jucken, one of the prisoners taken in the battle of Winchester, has been released at the intercession of his father, who is a chaplain in the United States Navy, and a nephew of the rebel Gen. Jackson. The Baltimore Sun illustrates the sympathy displayed in that city. It states that Messrs. Tilghman and Mackenzie, of the committee appointed to look after the prisoners, report that they have now in their hands, for safe keeping, $1,371 in Confederate money, which will be paid over to the prisoners on the final release from confinement. On Wednesday last the committee handed to the prisoners $00 in Baltimore funds; and on Saturday, previous to their leaving the prison, $500 in one dol
Federal were killed and wounded, and about 4,000 prisoners taken — among them Gen. Prenties. Our loss in killed and wounded is from 3,000 to 4,000. After a short fight on Monday morning at the Tennessee river, our army fell back in good order eight miles in the direction of Corinth, to a stronger position, and to wait reinforcements under Gen. Van-Dorn, who is reported to be at Memphis with 12,000 men. A private dispatch from a prominent officer engaged in the fight, says that Gen. Jackson, of Ga., and staff, are safe. Lieut. J. J.

His wife is in California, and thither, at some future day, his body may be carried for permane
From the Stonewall Brigade. We have before us a private letter from a member of the Stonewall Brigade, which, however, contains little news. The letter is dated the 8th, and states that General Jackson's force is rapidly increasing, but that the enemy still outnumber him almost four to one. The writer says:-- "I saw two young men to-day who left Winchester a few days ago. They bring many interesting reports as to affairs there. The basements of the churches have been taken for cavalry stables, as also the market-house. The ladies show the Yankees no countenance, and there is little or no Union feeling there. No Yankees now infest Jefferson, and farming operations are going on briskly with the material left to conduct it."

The reports from the Military Committee, through their chairman, Mr. Miles, were of a practical character, and evidenced the determination of the House to render every aid in promoting the efficiency of the army. The bills for the appointment of artillery officers, for the increase of the engineer corps, and for the organization of a signal corps, are all measures of utility, and should perhaps ere this have engaged the consideration of Congress. We believe that hitherto the engineer corps of our army has been totally insufficient for the labors required of it, and engineer officers have been greatly needed in several of the departments. We are credibly informed that Gen. Jackson has been applying since November for a competent engineer, and to this day his application has not been filled for want of that class of officers.
