and wounded still remained upon the field, and among them the body of the lamented Colonel Lomax. An omnibus was sent out to get as many as possible, but this was captured by the enemy.--The Yankees advanced to the edge of a piece of woods, within about one thousand yards of our line, where they halted and remained at dusk. Gen Mahone's brigade was soon reinforced by several brigades which were drawn up a short distance in its rear, while a large force was placed near by in reserve.--President Davis, General Lee, Smith, Longstreet, Stuart, and other commanding Generals, were upon the ground at this point, showing that it was an important position in the affairs of the day. Thus matters stood at sundown. As no further attack was anticipated during the night, our troops prepared to bivouac on the field, in readiness for the events of to-day. Of course it is impossible at this time to chronicle but a small portion of the casualties and incidents. We give such as we have been ab

Mr. Towle claims $100,000 salvage for saving the vessel from shipwreck — not that he wants the money, he says, but that his claims of saving the big ship from destruction may be recognized by the owners as well as by the public.

A letter from London, by the last steamer, states that there is a strong probability that Madam Goldschmidt (Jenny Lind

The Administration and Congress, in spire of such a record, to day stand arraigned before their masters — the people — for not having fully compassed the measure of this mighty movement. I cannot better illustrate this spirit, than by relating the last words spoken to me by a planter of Dallas, as I passed up the Alabama, in March last, on my way to Richmond. "Say to President Davis and to Congress, that they are not yet alive to the magnitude and importance of this contest. It is a contest for constitutional liberty. Tell them that the people are far ahead of their representatives — that we are ready and anxious to give, at their call, all we have of property, of blood — aye, and of life. But there is one thing we will not give, even to them — our liberties. Take all else, but save out liberties." History furnishes the example of no people superior to this
