erprises of the enemy with so much accuracy that it is believed by many to dilate them, told us a week or more ago, that Gen. Lee was playing a rash game in removing his army from Richmond, for that the great warrior, Dix, would be sure to take advannt at least of a demonstration. It will not do. Not a man, not a horse, not a gun, will be withdraws from the army of General Lee, and Dix will not take Richmond. We have a force amply sufficient to drive him back, and perhaps to capture his wholeure Richmond. His whole design is to frighten the citizens to such an extent that they shall demand the protection of General Lee's army, and thus mar the great enterprise upon which he is bent. What that enterprise may be — whether it aims at the the barbarities he has practiced against us — we know not. But, whatever may be the ultimate design, it is obvious that Gen. Lee's movements have stricken the whole Yankee nation with a terror, to which we never had a parallel in the South. Either
East Tennessee. Burnside has been called to Washington, with all his troops. Of this there seems to be no doubt whatever. The traitors in East Tennessee, who profess to have planted their crops in the hope that they would be reaped by the Yankees, are, therefore, likely to be disappointed. Burnside will not prevent troops from being sent to Johnston, as the New York Herald suggested. The movement of General Lee, whatever may be its object, seems to have been, in the language of a lard-room, "a ten strike." It has disconcerted all the latest schemes for crushing out the rebellion. The success of Gen. Chalmers in sinking several transports below Memphis, proves what we said some time since — that even though Vicksburg and Port Hudson should both be captured, the Mississippi can never be considered open for trade as long as a hostile population inhabits a portion of the territory lying upon its banks. Flying batteries will always be found to annoy trading boats, and secu
cting marching orders immediately. Gov. Curtin received a dispatch from Chambersburg which states that Jenkins was at Waynesburg, twelve miles from Chambersburg, Saturday evening. He had been plundering the houses among the mountains. Gen. Couch has received a dispatch confirming the report that the rebel cavalry were at Gettysburg. The force that went to McConnelsville, in Fulton, to 25 miles from Chambersburg, helped themselves to whatever they wanted in the stores, collected together a large number of cattle and horses, and then moved off towards Hancock, Md. A small mounted force rode into Frederick, Saturday, paroled the sick soldiers in the hospitals, took a few horses, and left. No attack has been made so far on Harper's Ferry. Three thousand laborers have been called into service, and negroes freely impressed, for the thorough fortification of Baltimore. Nothing definite is published in regard to the movements of Gen. Lee's army, or of Hooker's.
The Scare at Washington. A gentleman who came through the lines since the capture of Winchester by our forces says that the newspapers convey a very inadequate idea of the extent of the alarm at Washington, produced by the news of the advance of Gen. Lee's army. Every available man was being hurried to the capital for its defence, and the whole city was in a perfect furore of alarm and excitement. Official information, received here, state that under the influence of this excitement Burnside's corps has been ordered from Kentucky to constitute a portion of the army designed for the defence of the Yankee Sodom.
From Northern Virginia. The passengers by the Central train last evening bring no new report of army operations on the border, and it is presumed that matters in that interesting quarter have assumed comparative quiet since its occupation by our forces. There was not even a rumor yesterday as to the whereabouts of Gen Lee's army, a portion of which is known to be in Maryland. The train brought down eleven unlucky Yankee "ladies," who were not so fortunate as Milroy and his amiable wife in making their escape, when our forces captured Winchester. They were assigned quarters in Castle Thunder.
en, the bloody record of their baffled, beaten hests is written all along its classic margin, and mingles in the flowing tide of our historic river. The Yankee nation shudders at the name of Rappahannock — the death-knell of their hopes and aims, and efforts in Virginia — while from its glorious battle-fields goes up the grand shout of victory, which is echoed and re-echoed from defiant Vicksburg and the Mississippi's rolling waves. And now, upon the Susquehanna is heard the steady sound of Lee's advancing legions, and the flying subjugators of the free South are scattering in mighty dread before their onward march. Retaliation is the watchword now. Despotism is trembling in its seat, and the miserable race of Yankeedom fasting the first fruits of their own folly and inequity. Subjugated themselves, enslaved by tools of their own creating, they will now expect immediate subjection to Confederate arms, as if the Confederacy would stoop to soil her hands by even accepting them as sl
