to take it with the least possible blunt shed, and are hurrying forward men to that and. If fifty disciplined and uniformed militia regents were to-morrow to offer themselves for three months service, we feel confident that all would be promptly accepted. Burnside's Opinion A dispatch from Washington date Friday, June 13, says: Gen. Burnside Was in town yesterday returning to Fort Monroe, by the afternoon boat. His reports from the Peninsula, where he spent several hours with Gen, McClellan, are favorable, He sees no reason why, with good weather, our army should not be in Richmond within a very few days. He does not think that the rebels are strengthened by their-forced levies, but believes that undisciplined members endanger an army which they apparently reinforce, as was the case at Newbern, when the few North Carolina militia threw the whole rebel forces into a panic. Gen Burnside sees some signs of loyalty in the old North State, but is not so sanguine of i

his appeal to you, I feel it my duty to remark, that you must not for an instant suppose that the thousands who will be utterly unable to leave, upon this short notice, and the many who will thus be forced to take the hateful oath of allegiance to a despised Government, are thus to be converted into loyal citizens of the United States, or their affections weaned from our glorious young Confederacy; and while to " threaten" were unsoldierly, yet to worn is kindness, and therefore, General, I would say, beware of the curses and oaths for vengeance, which the fifty thousand brave Tennesseeans, who are still in our army, will register in heaven against the persecutor of helpless old men, women and children, and the General who cannot guard his own lines. The bearer of the flag and this letter, Capt. E. R. Porter, C. S. A., is authorized to agree with you on the paints asked in the foregoing. Yours, respectfully, M. Jeff. Thompson, M. S. G., Brig-Gen on Special Service, C. S. A.
When Border-State patriots like Judge Holt shall be ready to say decisively, "Save the nation, though Slavery perish," the aspects of the struggle will be radically changed. We only outeat that they do not hesitate too long, and that, when the Government does speak, it shall so clearly express itself as to leave no slave of a Rebel in doubt that, by openly adhering to and serving the Republic, he will earn its protection and secure his own freedom.

e, but fought well for about two hours, when they displayed a white flag, laid down their arms, and surrendered unconditionally. Their loss in killed was eight, wounded twenty-five, and prisoners sixty-two. Of Major Balley's command not a man was killed, and only three slightly wounded. Ordnance and commissary stores were found in great abundance, all of which were destroyed except five hundred Enfield rifles, which were placed in wagons and safely brought back to the Salt Sulphur Springs. The notorious Dr. Wm. H. Rucker, who holds a Lieutenant Colonel's commission in the Yankee army, is reported to have committed excesses, such as shooting prisoners in cold blood, burning bridges, &c., that will entitle him to more severe treatment than is usually accorded to prisoners of war. On his arrival at the Salt Sulphur, Gen, Loring had him placed in irons, and then dispatched a messenger to Allegheny county for evidence of his former crimes. His trial was to have taken place last week.
Capture of a Distinguished Prisoner. --The Warrenton (Va) correspondent of the New York Herald, says: Among the prisoners captured at Orange Court-House on Saturday last was a Captain from this town, named A. Murat Willis, who, from his family connections, appears to be quite an important personage. Besides being immensely rich, he boasts (or his friends boast for him) that his oldest sister married the son of Marshal Murat, and is now a Princess by virtues of a decree of the present Napoleon, though still living in Florida; and another sister is the wife of Commodore Dallas, formerly of the United States Navy. Capt. Willis was an Aid de-Camp to Gen, Early at the battle of Bull Run, and received special mention in that officer's official report for gallantry and bravery. Afterwards he raised a company of cavalry and joined Ashby's famous regiment, and became one of the most dreaded scouts in this section of rebeldom.

Early, Lawton, and Trimble, engaged the enemy very soon after Jackson's division, and to the left, and fully sustained the reputation this veteran division had heretofore achieved.
