From both the Federal and our own accounts of the late fight opposite Columbus, Ky., we are inclined to the opinion that none has yet occurred during our pending war with the Government of that brutal tyrant, Lincoln, which surpasses it in point of terrible loss of life, particularly to the Yankees, considering the number engaged.

Pillow, at Camp Belmont, opposite Columbus.

My Dear Governor: Your old and trusted friend, * * * *, has just arrived here from his new home in * * * * *. As he is about to leave for Europe, I embrace the opportunity his going offers to say a word to you on American affairs. It must be difficult for you to comprehend that a people who flocked by tens and hundreds of thousands to listen to your immortal words upon the rights of States and "peoples" to govern themselves in their own way, should, in a few short years, forget all your wise teachings, and surrender themselves to a political and military despotism worse in all of its aspects than that from which you had just escaped. A despotism erected for the sole purpose of subjugating independent States and a free people, allied to them by all the ties which civilized
