for the amelioration of the sufferings of our gallant boys who have had the misfortune to fall into the hands of the enemy, and been carried to the Federal capital. On the arrival of the Yankee Surgeons released by Jackson a short time since, Dr. Bates and four volunteer Surgeons taken at Williamsburg were unconditionally released, having previously been paroled. Dr. Bates will remain for some days at the 2d Alabama Hospital, where he can be seen, if there are persons in the city who wish toDr. Bates will remain for some days at the 2d Alabama Hospital, where he can be seen, if there are persons in the city who wish to inquire for friends.

ce, to show the Yankees he is here, and probably in three days will be in Kentucky! Two Surgeons, returned from Halleck's army, report that it is there believed the French have acknowledged the Confederacy. The fact, too, is established, that some of our soldiers, prisoners, had been sent back with the small pox, in order to spread the disease among our troops. What a precious set of wretches we have to deal with, to be sure! The day has been uneventful, except my cordial greetings with Col. Bates's regiment, (2d Tennessee,) which was the first to come to Fredericksburg, and which won so many friends and good opinions in that section of Virginia, and won such laurels by its conspicuous gallantry at Shiloh. The record of its deeds and losses I must reserve for another letter. Its Colonel (who ought to be a Brigadier,) lies wounded at Columbus. His numerous friends in Virginia will be pleased to learn he has not lost his leg, and is doing well. Many of Col. Fagan's regiment (the 1

gomery Advertiser furnishes that journal with an account of the experience of Dr. Bates, of the 10th Alabama regiment, who remained with Lieutenant-Colonel Henry Forney, who was wounded in the battle at Williamsburg Dr. Bates staid at Williamsburg about ten days, was then sent to Washington city as a prisoner; but, in charge of d to come home, and finally discharged unconditionally The letter says: Dr. Bates decided to cast his lot with the Colonel, and as our troops departed and the re shortly after placed under the control of the Yankee Surgeons, after which Dr. Bates played a subordinate part, professionally, merely nursing, dressing and lookiilliamsburg along with our wounded, and occupied a position near Col. Forney. Dr. Bates attended to his wants and sufferings, and they soon became acquainted on goodms. When our army left their wounded and the Yankees came in, the Major told Dr. Bates if he got into any trouble to let him know, and he would help him out of it.
American bankers in London. --Mr. Bales (of the firm of Barring Brothers) and Mr. Peabody, the American bankers in London, are Americans by birth, but seem to have become aliens and enemies of this country by education. They have both accumulated large fortunes from their dealings with this country, and now, in the time of our trial, they denounce our Government, applaud the Confederates, discredit our stocks, send them here for sale, and attempt to drain our market of specie.--Mr. Thurlow Weed asserts that Mr. Peabody is a loyal man; but Mr. Weed was fresh from Peabody's dinner-table when he made that assertion, and facts are very much stronger than even Mr. Weed's word. Loyal Americans in Europe will do well to take a note of the course of Messrs. Bates and Peabody, and act accordingly.--N. Y. Herald.
t was organized, the opposition was at once associated in the administration. Stephens, who ran with Douglas, was made Vice President. A Cabinet of all parties was constructed. When Cabinet officers were proved insufficient, they were dismissed. Laggart Generals were cashiered, deserters shot, peculators punished. The South was organized on a war basis. President Lincoln, on the other hand, made up his Cabinet out of the dead-wood of the Chicago Convention. Seward, Chase, Cameron, Bates, were all his rivals, and enemies of each other — all disappointed and rejected men! These worn-out politicians had their followers to provide for; and they fed them upon the plunder of the treasury — upon the commissariat of the army — upon the spoils of patronage. In the crisis the first battle of Bull Run, the President was engaged in settling paltry claims of partisans to post-offices; and, fourteen months later, when Washington was in hourly danger of capture, was busy making up parti<
The very latest. We have received New York and Philadelphia papers of the 26th, brought by flag of truce boat which arrived at Varina yesterday. Surg.-Gen. Hammond reports at Washington that 3,000 dead Confederates have been buried on the field at Sharpsburg by the Federal, and that 600 remain unburied. Attorney. General Bates made a speech in Washington Thursday night, and did not say one word about Lincoln's emancipation proclamation. It is said he urgently opposed it. The Republicans of New York have nominated Brig.-Gen. James S. Wadsworth for Governor of that State. He is now Military Governor of Washington city. Gen. Milroy has been appointed to the command of Western Virginia.--The militia recently called out in Pennsylvania during the panic are returning their arms to the State and themselves to their homes. The Relief Committee of San Francisco has given $100,000 to the United States Sanitary Committee for the relief of sick and wounded soldiers. A Convention of

must be thought of the judgment, the prudence, or the patriotism of the doctrinaire who proclaim to all the world, in advance, that Philadelphia contains thirty thousand to forty thousand Secessionists, or, in other words, that half her voting population "desire the success of the rebellion?" The Cincinnati Inquirer, of Monday, "makes a point," as follows: The most astonishing thing in the world is, that while four members of Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet--Messrs. Seward, Blair, Smith, and Bates--were utterly opposed to his proclamation of emancipation, the Abolitionists have the audacity to denounce as 'traitors' (as some of them do) all who cannot conscientiously endorse that proclamation. The same paper notices what it calls "patent secession," to wit: "Vallandigham's Secession plan was in the form of a joint resolution proposing amendments to the Constitution."--Gazette. To propose amendments to a code of organic law which is to be over the whole, is a funny way to
agnitude. According to a register just published, the Abolition army embraces over a million men. A fire, involving the loss of $65,000 occurred in Washington street, New York, Thursday. The Baltimore American's Suffolk correspondent is satisfied that the army in that vicinity is capable of marching into Richmond, and says the roads leading to the rebel capital are good and less protected than any other route, and the soldiers are all anxious to undertake the job. Attorney-General Bates regards the admission of West Virginia as unconstitutional. Lincoln, it is thought, will not sign the bill. The Herald says the rebels in Western Tennessee and Northern Mississippi appear to have involved all our combinations against them in serious difficulties and drawbacks, and we shall be agreeably disappointed if great victories, instead of disheartening reverses, shall be results of winter campaign in the Southwest as now conducted. The Herald says Foster's operation
t at the head of the military operations of the country so takes hold upon the stupendous interests at this time of one of the greatest nations upon the face of the earth. We think he left eminently a favorable impression upon all who honored him with their presence on the occasion. His accomplished-lady, with Miss Stanton, a niece, and Miss Wilkes, a friend of the family, both of them graceful young ladies, added their presence to the accomplishments of the entertainment. Attorney-General Bates--The calls upon the Attorney-General were little less numerous and equally as complimentary in their character as in the case of those already mentioned. The able Attorney-General, venerable for a long career of eminent professional and patriotic public services, as for everything that most adorns the sanctuary of social private life, received his guests with the utmost case and frankness, to which his dignified and polished lady, with their two agreeable daughters, and their guests
