Jackson's Varieties. The Northern papers cannot conceal their chagrin at the complete rout Banke has sustained from Jackson. In their accounts they speak of Banks's army as greatly infecter in numbers to Jackson's. They style it "the feeble column of Gen Banks." Nevertheless, it is evident that great alarm has been caused by Jackson's sudden appearance upon the banks of the Potomac. There is a great stir among the new recruits in New York and places of renderings in the West. The PhilaGen Banks." Nevertheless, it is evident that great alarm has been caused by Jackson's sudden appearance upon the banks of the Potomac. There is a great stir among the new recruits in New York and places of renderings in the West. The Philadelphus Inquirer blows tremendously about the new regiments going forward, and thinks they will strike terror to the heart of "Stonewall" Gen. Jackson is one of those resolute and ever watchful commanders who are not to be taken by surprise, and will not be alarmed by mere report of an enemy. He will not part with the new recruits of the North he is threatened with till they have a touch of his quality. He is one of the men who does not think about adds. He wants an effective army of respect

The women of Winchester. The New York New World's correspondent from Banks's retreating army, writing from Hagerstown, Maryland, says that while the Federalists were retreating through Winchester, women of that town opened fire with pistols upon them from the windows, "and killed a great many." It is very doubtful whether or no this is true. The women of the town hardly fired the guns. Probably they were too glad to see the Yankees going to delay the department of even one of them by a wound from a pistol shot. The statement may be never be taken as an indication of what the writer thinks of the women of Winchester. Their fidelity to their country was so marked that the Yankee not only expected no sympathy from them in the reverse which hurried him from Wm. Chester, but he even feared they would give him a parting shot as he fled. So the well aimed bullets, which are alleged to have killed many of his comrades, are charged upon the paddies! But how can the Yankees hope for
demoralizing effect on the rebel army. Information from Gen. Halleck, dated yesterday, indicates that no engagement had taken place. No particulars of Gen Banks's affair have been received. The New York Times, of the 29th, has the following items from its correspondent in the Federal army before Richmond: Threeion by careful reconnaissances; by opposing strong columns at proper strategic points, and by a deliberate combination of his own movements with those of McDowell, Banks, Fremont, Wool, and Burnside. Daily he makes progress. Nearer and nearer come the colossal hosts, and at any moment we may have tiding of the great battle. se movements and ways of movement, we can only speculate for the present, leaving it to a future, not remote, to develop results of which we can now only surmise the probability. The retreat of Banks will neither influence nor retard the great plan, which for many reasons must proceed slowly, but surely to its consummation.

From the account of the New York World's correspondent we make the following abstract: Friday's fighting. Hagerstown, Md. Sunday, May 25. --The Maryland First had seemed more than probable intending to push upon us in our rear, placing us between two fires, each doubtless larger than the little command which remained to General Banks after the withdrawal of so large a portion of it to reinforce other less exposed divisions of the army. We soon learned that the forces of Ewell were on tdly, with his Staff, to the head of the column, and the soldiers raised a hearty cheer as he passed, which continued up the column as he advanced to the front. Gen. Banks soon followed, and was greeted with similar manifestations of pleasure and confidence in their commander. We followed closely, and the road was filled with
