rksdale, of Mississippi, and Gens. Kemper and Garnett, of Virginia, were killed. Gen. Hood, of Texas, was wounded. [the Press dispatches.] Martinsburg, Va., July 5. --At 6 P. M. Saturday Gen. Lee had changed his front and occupied the ground he drove the enemy from on the 1st and 2d. His whole army is in excellent spirits and the master of the situation. We have captured 12,000 of the enemy. Gens Ponder and Pickett are wounded. Colonel Avery, of N C., is killed, and Colonels Bennett and Parker wounded. Ewell's wagons are recaptured. [second Dispatch.] Martinsburg, July 6. --Reports to-day all concur that there was a heavy fight yesterday, in which we defeated the enemy and drove him three miles. A vast number of prisoners are reported taken by Gen. Lee. The prisoners refuse to be paroled, and are on the way to Richmond by this place. This has been the bloodiest battle of the war. Our loss is very great — the enemy's immense. The Yankee cavalry

Sonnell attributes this rise to the late disasters in Virginia and adds that it is now evident that this war must last at least another year. So that Mr. Sew. act shope of impressing the rebellion in ninety days is not shared by Bennett and the Wall street brokers. The Herald further says that foreign "mediation, and perhaps intervention, are imminent, and that still war expenses must now be urred, and predicts that if "this war should continue two states longer gold will be at twenty or twenty-five per cent premium." From this admission it may be inferred that the fullest confidence is not felt in the new Government currency. "Those who caused the Virginia disasters have caused the therefore, " concludes the to rest
A fair estimate. --The Yankee newspapers continue to be as complimentary to each other as before the war. The Philadelphia North American, in speaking of the inhabitants of New York city, has a fair estimate of the people of Gotham. It says that it has not less than one hundred thousand outlaws, divided thus: women of the town20,000 Thieves30,000 outlaws of all other kinds10,000 Adventurers ready for any chance wind25,000 persons without any means of getting a living15,000 or perhaps they might be divided in the following manner: Refuse of Europe70,000 Sweepings of the free States20,000 Driftwood from the South5,000 Original products of New York vice and crime5,000 We should judge that this, coming from a Yankee source, can be taken as a fair estimate of the population of New York. Will not Bennett inform us how many vagabonds are in Philadelphia?
o get the rope over the wall. When the top was gained they found a rope extending all around, which the General immediately cut, as he suspected that it might lead into the warden's room. This turned out to be correct. They then entered the sentry box on the wall and changed their clothes, and let themselves down the wall. In sliding down the General skinned his hand very badly, and all were more or less bruised. Once down, they separated.--Taylor and Shelton going one way, Hokersmith, Bennett, and McGee another, and Gen. M. and Capt. Hines proceeding immediately towards the depot. The General had, by paying fifteen dollars in gold, succeeded in obtaining a paper which informed him of the schedule time of the different roads. The clock struck one, and he knew by hurrying he could reach the down train for Cincinnati. He got there just as the train was moving off. He at once looked on to see if there were any soldiers on board, and espying a Federal officer, he boldly walked up
The Legislature. Senate.--Edwin L. Moore, Senator elect from the 31st Senatorial district of Virginia, sent in his resignation yesterday, which was selected, and a writ of election ordered for the immediate filling of the vacancy. Several resolutions of a private nature were adopted, after which the Senate adjourned. House.--A quorum of members appearing in their seats yesterday, Gov. Smith's inaugural address was received, tabled, and the usual number of copies ordered to be printed. A communication from Auditor Bennett, furnishing certain statistical information, was ordered to be printed. Several resolutions of inquiry were adopted. Also, a preamble and resolutions denouncing the present system of impress ments, and providing for sending the agents into the field. A bill enlarging the powers and privileges of the Virginia Military Institute was passed. Adjourned.
The Daily Dispatch: February 19, 1864., [Electronic resource], The address of Congress to the people of the Confederate States. (search)
The recent news (foreign) from beyond Mason & Dixon contained some items worthy of note. Bennett, of the corrupt Herald, who always turns his back upon the setting sun that he may be ready to ould doubt; but its defeat at the polls is not so certain. It must be confessed, however, that Bennett's denunciations are generally significant. He never exfoliates from a party in power until it is well known, and his desertion of old Abe under the hypocritical plea of his dishonesty (oh, Bennett!) is discouraging to his prospects. We learn from Washington dates of the 9th February thaat the end of the war at four thousand millions. It is already about three thousand millions. Bennett thinks if Lincoln is re-elected it will be swollen to six thousand millions before the war is eears for proposing prospective emancipation at the South. A third party of expectant, of which Bennett is one, is deserting him to rally under some one who has, as they suppose, better prospects of
Where Seward, the arch fiend, is to range himself in the grand combat of the angels, is not exactly settled. He will likely stand by Abe, if some new phase of the campaign should not open a door to him which does not now excite his hope. Fremont is, of course, a candidate of the German radicals, the bran bread and socialist color — fraternizing politicians, male and female. He has written a letter assailing Lincoln for injustice to himself and for bad management of the war. Bennett calls all these parties, including old Abe's, as "factions!" in its financial article, it gives Chase a side wind by denouncing his financiers, complaining that he has endeavored to sustain the credit of the Government by borrowing and by paper issues, until he is "likely to bring ruin on the country" by the weight of the public debt. It says that this is attracting attention and exciting complaints even among "Republican journals." It calls for a heavy direct tax as the only thing to save

e, and our conviction of his determination that "slavery must die that the nation may live, " have won the confidence of a large majority of the unconditional Unionists of Maryland Resolved therefore, That this Convention cordially recommends Abraham Lincoln as its choice, and the preference of the unconditional Unionists of the State for the ensuing Presidential term, subject to the decision of the National Union Nominating Convention. What Lincoln's administration has done. Bennett, in commenting upon a recent report which Gen McClellan has published in the North, thus sums up what has been done for the country by interference with, and removal of that officer: The administration interfered with the peninsula campaign, and, by its withdrawal of sixty thousand men from the number that had been assigned as necessary to carry that campaign to a successful issue, caused its failure. The administration, by its suspension of General McClellan in August, 1862, caused t
inion. But when the war began, Brooks, like such multitudes of our quondam Northern friends, disappointed all the hopes which had been aroused by his former career. The gale that swept from Fort Sumter stripped the Northern forest of its glories, and among the first leaves whirled away by the hurricane was the editor of the Express. His was not a gradual and graceful fall from his high position. It was not merely a fall, but a burying deep in mud and slime. He sought to surpass even Bennett in the shamelessness of his tergiversation. He recommended hindering and destructive raids upon that James river on which stood the estate he had acquired by marriage with his Virginia wife. He seemed eager to purge from his nature all taint of its ancient Virginianism, and to be known only as the unforgiving enemy of all he had professed to love, and the scorner and contemner of all he had professed to admire and venerate. The war was begun, and it begun and moved on in a different
