In answer to a serenade from Gen. Price's band, a few nights since, at Corluth, General Beauregard made a speech, in which he said he hoped soon to be in possession of some Northern cities to compensate for the loss of New Orleans. The Vicksburg Whig. of the 9th, learns that all the cotton along the Mississippi river is being burned. Judge Perkins alone consigned 1,300 bales to the flames. On the morning of May 4th, the Federal fleet was at Fort Adams, 50 miles below Natchez, Miss., An early attack upon Vicksburg was apprehended. The New York Herald. seems to think that a General and a showman are alike, by calling on McClellan, instead of Baroan, to exploit the executor. A Wise ruler will preserve the liberty of the press, because it is his interest to know the true state of the nation.
He is expending all his power and means to subjugate us. We have but to be constant persevering and watchful — never relaxing, never desponding — and he will inevitably break down in his mighty crusade. It cannot be long maintained in such vast proportions. It is a thing impossible. The first great event will likely be the attempt to take this city. The fight in this vicinity will be a great struggle. Our soldiers are confident, and our people rely upon them and their commanders. Beauregard's great battle, if it does not precede this, will follow soon afterwards. If they are both in our favor they may possibly end the war; at all events, the enemy could not recover from two such defeats this year. Should either or both be against us, we must only gather up the remains of battle and prepare for that prolonged struggle which, with a brave people and unregenerate descendants of the men of the Revolution of '76, must terminate in favor of liberty and independence. But we r
oing on between our forces and those of the enemy, and on Sunday our pickets were attacked along the centre. The fighting is represented to have been severe, with the prospect of an early general engagement. We are glad to observe that Gen. Beauregard has determined to bestow some token or merit upon those officers and soldiers who may distinguish themselves in battle hereafter.--No greater compliment can be paid the soldier, and no higher incentive to deeds of glory presented, than the atrue, has a past and glorious cause to incite him to battle and to victory; but couple with this knowledge of the fact that his name is not to perish with his body on the field of conflict, and he will all the more cheerfully bear the trials of camp and dare the perils of battle. We hope that the system inaugurated by Gen. Beauregard of awarding the badge to the meritorious will prevail in all our armies, so that the private soldier may be favored with the opportunity of winning distinction.
From Corinth.heavy skirmishing.a battle Daily expected [Special Dispatch] Corinth, May 18. --via Mobile 19th--Heavy skirmishing took place yesterday and to-day. The enemy attacked our pickets along the centre, and brought up their artillery, when the fighting became very severe. Our casualties are forty killed and wounded. We took several prisoners. A battle is expected daily. General Beauregard has issued an order awarding a badge of merit to every officer and soldier distinguishing himself in battles hereafter — the names of such to be reported to a military commission, on whose recommendation he will receive the reward of patriotism from the hands of the General.
w of whom were captured in spite of their fleetness.--Some of them say that 40,000 men were massed together in an entrenched camp behind Seven Miles Creek, about a mile and a half back at Farmington. These troops had ample time to come to the assistance of Gen. Pope possibly flalleck thought we would follow a across the creek, where he would have great the advantage; or, it may be, he was not ready for the decisive battle, and therefore remained quietly in his camp. Be this as it may, Gen. Beauregard offered him battle upon a faithful open field, and he declined to accept it. And he was not ready, then he acted wisely; if he was, and still declined the offer, then he must distrust his ability to cope with us upon equal terms. The loss was slight on both sides, on account of the character of the engagement. Fifty will probably cover the number of our killed and wounded, and two hundred that of on enemy. We captured a telegraph office suit considerable amount of baggage and case
ound addressed by Hon Z. Kidwell, of the Board of Public Works, to Righter, and the National says that the Doctor's old friends are amazed at learning that a man of his standing and reputation for piety could be guilty of inciting Righter to plunder, rob, and murder his old neighbors, but that it has the satisfaction of knowing that he will have to account to "God and man" for his conduct. "They will never forgive him," quoth the National We are told in the same paper that Buell followed Beauregard to Corinth and captured his whole army! and that the rebellion is almost at an end. Also, that Gov. Peirpoint won't give the "Secesh women" (sic) papers to enable them to join their husbands in Dixie, because they are generally in very comfortable circumstances, and much better off than they would be running from town to town of Dixie, before the conquering hosts of Lincoln. It comforts them with the assurance that peace will soon spread her angel wings over the whole country, and then t
Released. --The telegraph having announced the arrest of one of the editors of the Memphis Avalanche, justice demands that we transfer to our columns the following from that paper of May 8th: Dr. Japha Fowlkes, one of the editors of this paper, whose late arrest for an article on cotton burning caused so much surprise, has been released. The arrest was made on direct order from Gen. Beauregard who, it seems, mistook the motive which led to the writing of the article. Gov. Isham G. Harris having conversed both with the writer of the article and the General, secured the release, which took place yesterday. As no article was ever written in better faith, or more honesty of purpose, his Excellency's action in this matter will give as much satisfaction to the friends of Dr. Fowlkes, as his arrest surprised and annoyed them.

The Loudoun Artillery. This distinguished corps is new not far from Richmond, just returned from the Peninsula. It has left home and friends, and all that is dear in life, now in the hands of the enemy, and is eagerly awaiting the moment to take part in vindicating the honor and liberties of the country.
