Retribution. There can be no doubt that Burnside promises his army the pillage of Fredericksburg as an inducement to the assault. A variety of circumstances prove this fact. A gentleman whose house had been occupied, and was undergoing the process of rifling, asked a general officer, whom be believes to have been General Sumner, to protect his property. He was asked if he was a Union man, and upon his replying in the negative, he was told that he would, in that case, receive no protecti

Another haul upon the Yankees. On Saturday morning last a detachment of the cavalry of Gen. Wade Hampton under the command of the General in person, made a rich haul on a Yankee train in the neighborhood of Occoquan.

Burnside," and consisted of fine brandies, cigars, and wines, and indeed everything calculated to elevate the fallen spirits of the Yankee chieftain. Besides these there was a good supply of sutter's stores, embracing boots and shoes, gauntlets, and nearly every other article necessary for the comfort of man during the cold season. In addition, one hundred and seventy Yankees who were guarding the train were made prisoners, and arrived in this city yesterday. The also captured the notorious John C.

From the Southwest. Morton, Miss, Aug. 4. --Twenty-two transports, laden with troops, have passed Natchez., going down, up to Friday. A number of Banks's and Burnside's regiments have been mustered out, their terms of service having expired. Transports loaded with negroes are sent up daily to Island No.10, where a camp for the instruction of the blacks in the manual of arms has been established. East and West Louisiana have been stripped to form negro regiments. Rumor says Sherman is furloughing one out of every company, and they leave daily for home. Pillaging parties are sent out daily from the garrisons at Natchez and New Carthage, who strip the country of provisions and commit every species of vandalism. The weather is extremely warm — thermometer 92 degrees.
