Our force in that fight was about 15,000 infantry, assisted by 8 batteries of artillery and $500 cavalry; but this force was reinforced towards the close of the fight. The rebel force has not been estimated. Among the casualties at Perryville, on Wednesday, are the following: Gen. Jackson, killed; Gen, Terrill, killed; Acting Brig-Gen Webster, killed; Acting Brig. Gen. Lyttle, killed; Lt. Col. Sercet, killed; Maj. Campbell, of the Fifteenth Kentucky cavalry, killed; Col. Pope, of the same regiment, wounded. There is no confirmation of the death of Gen.

feels himself to be strong enough to do so; then to retreat, drawing the Union army after him, probably to Front Royal, or to some other point in the Shenandoah Valley, where he can have the choice of position, and then fall upon the Union army, with the hope of defeating Gen. McClellan. Gen. Johnston, in the meantime, to advance from Culpeper and Warrenton, to Aldic, so as to be between Gen. McClellan and Washington, in order to cut off his retreat to the capital, and to act as a reserve to Gen, Lee in case of need, it will be seen at once that there are both sense and strategy in this plan. --In case it should succeed, Washington would be in greater danger than it has been yet. The following are the number and present disposition of all the rebel troops: Rebel "Army of the Potomac," commanded by General Lee in person, headquarters at Winchester, army corps of Gen. Jackson, Gen. Longstreet, and Gen. Hill, each about 40,000 strong, and including the divisions of Gen. E
ner of cool reliance. Aids and couriers were hurrying to and from the right, left and centre, and the whole disposition of forces seemed under his perfect control. Gen. Longstreet is stout and fleshy, and of good height, and has a quiet, courageous look. He seems full of thought and of decision, and his face makes an agreeable impression alike on new and old acquaintances. He is characteristically a fighting man — none can equal him in forcing a strong and well fortified position, and Gen, Lee showed his appreciation of an old tried soldier, when he patted him on the shoulder after the late battle and said, "My old war horse!" In this engagement he was second in command of the army, and his old corps keenly felt the need of his able handling. I was surprised at Stonewall Jackson's appearance. He has been described as a sort of clown. I never yet saw him riding with his knees drawn up like a monkey, and his head resting upon his breast. He has a first-rate face, and see
and Burnside have moved their headquarters. A letter, dated opposite Shepherdstown, says: Two men belonging to Gen, Humphrey's division were shot dead while on picket yesterday. Ever since the capture of one of the rebel pickets the othht at 11 o'clock, shows that the rebels were not very far off, It says: No news of importance has been received from Gen, Pleasanton to-day. The news received to-day from the vicinity of the main body of the rebel army, shows that Hill, Jacksuest was made to day to remove the bodies of two soldiers buried near Shepherdstown but it was denied until the consent of Gen, Lee or Stuart could be obtained, which occupied an hour. --This shows that the leading rebel Generals are not a great disesult of the investigation, and of their action at Washington. Whilst these proceedings were in progress, Major Jones, of Gen, Wool's staff, accompanied by several other officers and a Provest Guard of soldiers, appeared and at once seined the pape
Gen. Echols's command. We learn that our forces under Gen. Echols, in the Kanawha Valley, have fallen back to the Falls some distance above the town of Charleston. It is stated that this move of Gen. Echols was made upon the representations of a Yankee spy, who palmed himself off for a Federal officer. He entered the camp of Gen. Echols and surrendered himself up as a prisoner, stating to the General that a large Federal force was coming up in his rear by way of Nicholas Court-House; and upon the statements of this man Gen. S. was induced to retire from his former position. It subsequently transpired that this party was a Yankee spy, and was no doubt sent for the object which he so successfully effected. He is said to have had upon his person quite a number of Confederate bills, which was discovered in time to secure his arrest, and he is now in the hands of the military.

New, what are we to say in regard to these highhanded, tyrannical measures ! Gen our Government do nothing to arrest such wicked proceedings ! Is it not the duty of the Government to demand the release of these three New Orleans clergymen, or in some way to retaliate, until the Abo Government of the North shall be brought to its ! Shall we continue to parcel any and every villain who comes to slay, and rob, and steal, and leave our own citizens to suffer in Northern prisons ? I think the President, with a good and clear conscience, could afford to hold in prison, and if
