ive scale. A commander with ordinary ability, permission to act at discretion, and a proper spirit, could, with such soldiers as there are in the commands of Bateau, Inge, Boyle, Ham, &c., and the well-managed artillery of Owens and Barksdale, ambuscade any such force of marauders, separate them, and whip them by detail.--The material is here — have we the leader? It is a matter worthy the attention of Gen. Johnston. Vast supplies for his army depend upon the protection of North Mississippi, and its protection merely demands an able and energetic cavalry officer. The distributing post-office at Jackson, Miss, having been discontinued, letters to persons in Gen. Johnston's army will save several days by being addressed to headquarters at Morton, Miss. It is rumored that the Federals are again to make another raid through Mississippi.--We hope our people in that section will be ready for them. The capital of Mississippi has been removed to Macon, Noxubee county.

Affairs in Mississippi--the negro Retaliation Question. A letter in the Atlanta (Ga.) Appeal dated at Morion, Miss., August 16th, gives the following interesting account of the recent successful fight made by Col. Logan near Port Hudson. The writer says: It was chiefly an artillery and cavalry action, lasting about two hours, between eight hundred men on each side, commanded respectively by Colonel Logan and General Andrews. Logan, it is true, dismounted some of his men, but a cavalryman dismounted is still a cavalryman. If the enemy were not surprised, Logan charged on them with such impetuosity as to give the affair all the character of a surprise to the blue coats. The hottest of the action occurred in the immediate vicinity of that literary institution, Centenary College, whose classic walls bear the marks of grape, shrapnel, and Minnie balls. Around this building the enemy rallied, and it is said the negroes in arms with the enemy fought for awhile with spirit, c

rrectionary slaves, found with arms in their hands in actual rebellion against their masters, by which overt acts, according to the laws, of the State, they have forfeited their lives, is the subject of much outside conjecture and speculation. --But it is said, with what degree of veracity I am unable to decide, that Col. Logan has taken the entire responsibility, and that the negroes aforesaid were shot soon after the engagement, at a little place called Centreville, twenty miles from Jackson, Louisiana. It is said, also, that prior to the execution, Gen. Andrews, learning the intended fate of the slaves, sent a communication under flag of truce from Port Hudson, warning Col. Logan that if he executed the negroes he would immediately retaliate, as he had the material in his possession. (?) If this should prove true, the Pandora box of this war is now opened in earnest, and the skull and cross-bones will become the insignia of the Southern battle flag. By the way, I saw in the po
