Among the latest arrivals here is that of the Rev. John P. Campbell, of Nashville, a venerable minister, who, though sixty years of age, volunteered and served as a private in the war at its commencement. He has for some months, however, been devoting his time to the hospitals of the Southwest, in which he has done a great deal of good. He comes here to look into the hospitals and see how the good of the service my be advanced in this important branch. He reports the crops fine the breadth of corn planted immense. The spirit of the South, he says, is more than ever brave and defiant. The women he declares to be ahead of the men in their zeal. They solemnly affirm that they will fight themselves if the men fall, and that they will perish rather than submit to the Northern tyranny. It is refreshing to see the aged men of the South so confident and buoyant as Mr. C., who proves his faith by his exertions in the cause.
