"All I can offer you is a blanket," said Gen. Beauregard to me as we were parting for the night; and cer this simple but substantial repast was over, General Beauregard sent written instructions to his "Aid," Col. able to approach. I forcibly thought of what General Beauregard observed to me in the morning: "The Northern doubt, was accelerated by the impression that General Beauregard, by some Faustic skill, had "masked batteriesed; but he is known about the headquarters of General Beauregard, where I have conversed with him. As the poorI repaired with anything but a vivid appetite. Gen. Beauregard questioned me as to the impressions I had forme returning to Richmond--my headquarters — but General Beauregard prevailed on me to prolong my visit until theturned out, cheered, and presented arms, when General Beauregard dashed along the lines in true military styleeral's hospitality.

East Tennessee getting all right. --We had much pleasure in learning from a gentleman, who passed through East Tennessee on Saturday last, of the almost complete revolution in the sentiment of the people in the towns and counties through, which the Railroad passes. He states that several delegates to the late Greenville Convention are getting up companies, and that at only two stations did he see any manifestations of Union sentiment, and then the boys would walk some distance down the road, out of sight of their fathers, and greet the trains with loud huzzas for Jeff Davis. At most of the towns volunteer companies were being raised — and the whole State seemed to be aroused, as if by electricity, on learning of Beauregard's remark — during the fight on the 21st--vis: 'If I only had a Brigade of these Tennesseans, instead of one regiment, I would enter Alexandria with those running cowards.

A day or two before the great battle of the 21st ultimo, Mr. Taliaferro was admitted within the lines of General Beauregard. On that ever memorable Sunday, Mr. T. took his position, gun in hand, with, I believe, an Alabama regiment. If ever a man's whole soul was bent on a purpose, his undoubtedly was at that time. "Do or die, victory or death," was his mottoadvance of his companions; and when occasionally all were commanded to fall to avoid the shots of the enemy, he would stand erect and deliver his fire, exclaiming, "I never yet dodged from a Yankee, and so help me God I never will !" Beat that, Beauregard, if you can. Who can tell the amount of good resulting from such conspicuous, gallant action in a trying hour?

Whatever they may be, he has to encounter the vigilant eyes of such Generals as Beauregard and Johnston, the unfaltering courage of such men as met and overcame the greatest odds at Bethel, Bull's Run, and Manassas, and, above all, that Divine Providence whose interposition from the first in behalf of the Southern cause has been manrn cause has been manifest and undeniable, and without whose aid no human skill and energies can prosper. We have no disposition to underrate Gen.McClellan's abilities, but he will find more than his equal in Johnston and Beauregard; and the hundred and fifty thousand men, even if not all men in buckram, will probably find the Southern army increased in sufficient proportion to repeat the scenes and results of the 21st, even if the invaders are lucky enough to find us acting on the defensive.
