6 P. M. The streets are alive with excitement. The people of the town are in a wild state of trepidation. Women are running here and there, from one house to another, and others are hugging their children to their breasts as if to them from harm. The enemy have attacked us on General Terry's front. A prisoner has just new been brought in. He says they left Franklin this morning; that the rebel forces crossed in several places; that they commenced their march at daylight; that General Jenkins's division is moving on in one direction and Gen. Hood's in another, and other forces in directions he knows not of. He says it is the intention of the enemy to try and get between us and Norfolk and Portsmouth, and thereby cut off our telegraphic and railroad communication and prevent us from receiving reinforcements. As I write this more prisoners are passing. They express gladness at being taken, for they anticipate something good to eat. Col. Spear has advanced with his caval

General Hocker and a brilliant array of officers attended the cave cade, and a troop of lenders galloped after. The day was cloudy, with a few bright flashes of sunshine. The number of soldiers was immense. We do not know the exact figure, and would not ially excited the rebels over the way, who seemed quite astonished at such a missing of troops, and put themselves in readiness for another Fredericksburg fight. The display ended splendidly; and Mr. Lincoln, Mrs. Lincoln, Master Lincoln and General Hocker, must have been greatly delighted at the appearance of the men who were already for an immediate advance, and anxious that the next review should take place in Richmond. Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, and the Prince of Wales frequently

The Nashville Dispatch, of a recent date, in speaking of the operations of Col. Woodward on the Cumberland, admits three boats destroyed instead of two, as we published a few days since. The following is its telegram: Clarksville April 8.--The steamboats Lovell, Propeller, and Saxonia were captured and burned to day 15 miles above Clarksville. The Captain of the Lovell was killed, the Captain of the Saxonia had his arm shot off, and the fleet engineer of the Lovell wounded. Woodward was in command of the rebels, and had 1,200 men and two pieces of artillery. The passengers and crews of the boats have just arrived here. Col. Bruce has sent an expedition up the river to-night. The from the want of proper management of the gunboats. They fell back to Smithfield to co when they could have obtained a ful

They express gladness at being taken, for they anticipate something good to eat. Col. Spear has advanced with his cavalry brigade to a point one mile on the Blackwater road, which is to the right of the place where the Franklin and Petersburg railroads cross each other. The enemy is now in a straight line, about four miles from here. Col. Spear has opened with his howitzers, for the enemy is advancing skirmishers forward to the edge of the woods. A few shots have been fired from Fort Fosscrans, by order of Gen. Terry, in order to get the range and let the enemy know that we are important for an attack. The Provost Guard have been engaged in arresting all the men in town to be rank succession sts, and connecting them to jail. This is to prevent them from escaping during the night, for the purpose of carrying informat

We will match him against either of the European Princes at any game, from marbles to hop and if he grows as tall as his father, and as good looking as his mamma, he will be a model man and a future President. Mr. Lincoln, Mrs. Lincoln, and Master Lincoln, have now returned to Washington and Gen. Booker is now left alone with his army. What he will do with it is the question. A Yankee Estimate of Gen. Sterling Price. The Yankees seem to have a dread of even the name of this Confederate General in Missouri. The Louisville (Ky) Democrat has the following cry of warning to its Government: The name of the rebel General Sterling Price, is now the rallying cry of the rebels southwest of the Mississippi.

A Lieutenant his among those thus taken. Our patrols and pickets below the station mare for town, and arrived at our advanced signal station just as a negro reaches here bringing information of the enemy's approach in force, Through the extraordinary promptness of the signal officer there--Lieut. Theyer--who signalized from his station the enemy were firing at him and his assistants, the news was communicated to Gen. Peck by Lieut. Tumblin, also of the signal corps, and by the use of the instruments of this corps the whole force — infantry, artillery, and cavalry — was got ready for immediate action.

neral in Missouri. The Louisville (Ky) Democrat has the following cry of warning to its Government: The name of the rebel General Sterling Price, is now the rallying cry of the rebels southwest of the Mississippi. He has lately visited Richmond and been empowered with all the authority he demanded; and now he holds exclusive command over the department west of the Mississippi river, where he will endeavor to repair the injuries inflicted on the rebel caused by the mismanagement of Gens. Holmes and Hindman, who have been sent east of the Mississippi. Sterling Price is the most formidable man the Secessionists could present to the Federal cause in Missouri. He is hold and able, and enjoys the implicit confidence of his followers. Missouri must now be watched. Will he be allowed to approach her borders with anything like a respectable army? If any man can work apparent impossibilities in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Missouri that man is Sterling Price. It is the command

Many negroes living just out of town are skedaddling off towards Portsmouth "right lively, so I reckon." The town at eleven o'clock to night is in a most astonishing state of quietude for an occasion like the present. This is allowing to the fact of having the right man in the right place. Our Provost Marshal, Major Smith of the 112th New York, has done more good by firm persuasion in less than a few hours than ever was accomplished by the firing of a militia company into an impromturiotous crowd. The citizens are all quiet. Their houses are closed, though light may be seen burning brilliantly within. it is quite a treat to see these proud people — these chivalrous F. F.

King Abraham, the Queen and near apparent at a review — Comparisons with crowned Heads. The New York Herald has a characteristic article on the recent review of Hocker's army by King Abraham (Hanks) We give a portion of it: It appears that Mr. Lincoln and Mrs. Lincoln and Master Lincoln reviewed Hocker's army on the 8th inst. Our correspondent tells us that the President "was mounted upon a large bay. " that Mrs. Lincoln rode a carriage drawn by four spanking bays, " and that Master Lincoln "booted and sparred, rode bravely by the side of the President, followed by his dashing little orderly."

The attacking force, as usual, was cavalry. In an incredibly short space of time our whole force was under arms, manning the defences, and our cavalry out on the roads, on a trot march, to give the enemy the benefit of a hasty but warm reception. Gen. Feck was out, too, from his headquarters, to the execution of his orders, and thereby those who saw him as he rode here and there the ascending clouds of dust — for you must know that the mud has disappeared with the and snow.
