county of Caroline will not have to bring her militia into the field, her quotes of volunteers being much larger than the requisition of the Governor called for in his proclamation of the 20th. This is a noble county — practising exactly what it preaches. It voted for separation, and now it shows a thorough willingness to back its voting by any amount of fighting that may be necessary. ’
Those handcuffs.The Fredericksburg Recorder has received the following. It is dated "State of Maine, Headquarters Adj't General's Office, June 20, 1861:
My Dear Sir:
John L. Hodsden.
The reported victory in Missouri.The Memphis Appeal of the 31st ult., says: ‘ We have received a letter from a special correspondent, dated the afternoon of the 29th inst., from a point up the river, which we do not deem it either prudent or necessary to mention; stating that General Pillow had just received an express from Gen. Jeff. Thompson, of Missouri, announcing that General Ben. McCulloch had on Wednesday last made an attack on Springfield, and achieved a brilliant victory over the Federal forces, who were strongly fortified at that place under Gen. Lyon. It was represented as a hard fight, and the loss reported at 600 from McCulloch's command, against 900 of the enemy, with many Federal prisoners taken. The further statement is made, that after their rout the enemy was pursued, with what success we are unable to learn. Though usually discrediting the thousands of unreliable rumors that are daily flying through the country as the natural concomitants of revolution, we are disposed to believe the report of this victory, leaving ample room, of course, for all exaggerations. One reason for doing so, is simply based upon the almost hourly expectation we have entertained of a forward movement by our forces upon Springfield. Governor Jackson, in his late speech in this city, stated that such a move was contemplated, and was no doubt consummated at the time he was speaking. Though no mention is made in relation to the number of forces engaged on either side, we have other means of ascertaining. The command of Lyon and Siegel, (the latter of whom has recently gone to Jefferson City,) according to the estimate of the St. Louis papers, did not exceed 12,000 men, nearly all of whom were Germans. Gen. McCulloch, as we learn from a gentleman who arrived from his camp a few days since, had 8,000 men under him, encamped in Northwestern Arkansas, at Bentonville, which is only a few miles from the Missouri State line. Gen. Pearce was encamped only a few miles west of him with a force of 10,000, which may have joined McCulloch's column, and participated in the attack. We shall await further intelligence regarding this rumor with great interest. ’
Miscellaneous.A correspondent of a Yankee paper, writing home from the defeat of Manassas, had actually spirit enough left to indulge in a grim and dismal joke at the expense of William Howard Russell, L. L. D., whom he saw scampering from the battle field as fast as his horse would carry him. He said he could account for the name of the place--‘"'Bull's Run, ' John Bull's! Russell showed good horsemanship."’ Captain Doubleday was, it seems, in charge of General Scott's favorite pocket pistol, his famous Parrot gun. The gun is taken!--Where (asks the Wilmington Journal) is the invincible Doubleday? Won't he write some more braggadocio letters to his Yankee friends? ‘ Ye glorious Capita-ing Doubuelday,
Who writes all night and fights all day.
’ In one of the Massachusetts regiments there are or were 336 shoemakers, of whom 87 belonged to one company. This company at the Manassas fight was awfully troubled in its soles, and waxed too feeble towards the end to bristle up when the masked batteries balled it off. The officers of Lincoln's army deny the ‘"soft impeachment"’ of panic. They say they did not yield to panic, but to the ‘"irrepressible conflict"’ waged upon them by the Southern regiments. They weren't scared, they were thrashed. ‘"Masked batteries,"’ like the cry of ‘"Bluebeard,"’ to bad children, are the terror of the Northern people. The term is used so often in their fanciful stories of pretended victories, that it has become ridiculous. They should call a pocket revolver a masked battery. The Suffolk (Va.) Continentals and Marion Rangers whose term of enlistment expired on Saturday last, have re-inlisted for nine months more. The following is from the Bull Run correspondent of the Mississippian: While Joe, a servant of Erskine Watkins, was cooking a chicken in a kitchen near the hospital, a ball passed near him and struck his skillet. In his report he said, ‘"Bless God! Massa, I never saw de chicken after dat."’ James Camp Turner, of Huntsville, Ala.' (son of Capt. Daniel B. Turner and grandson of Major Robert Searcy, deceased, one of Gen. Jackson's Aids in the Creek war,) was shot through the heart at Manassas on the 21st ult.
