Ward's light artillery, and Johnston's cavalry company. General Lee was given chJohnston's cavalry company. General Lee was given charge of the line of defenses from Vicksburg to Snyder's Mill on Christmas day, and he at once made skillful arrangements for meeting the enemy. Judging the approaches nearest Vicksburg sufficiently protected by abatis of fallen timber, and the defenheld in check and driven back by Colonel Withers' command, the Forty-sixth Mississippi and two Napoleon guns under Lieutenant Johnston doing admirable work.

unded. During the next day Chalmers' brigade, under Col. T. W.. White, took position in the Round Forest, and struggled for its possession during the day. On January 2d the fight: was renewed here by the batteries of Stanford, Carnes and Smith, supported by Anderson's and other brigades. After the bloody defeat of Breckinridge on the other side of the river, Anderson moved to his support, and remained in line of battle January 3d. In the Virginia and Maryland campaigns of 1862, under Johnston, Jackson and Lee, Mississippians were also conspicuous. Mississippians were on guard at Yorktown under Magruder during April, 1862, and in the sortie of April 5th the Second battalion, Lieut.-Col. John G. Taylor, demonstrated their valor; and in the battle at Dam No. 1, April 16th, a part of the Seventeenth was engaged. At Williamsburg, the Nineteenth, Col. C. H. Mott, was very actively in the fight. Captain Macon, skirmishing in the woods in front, was desperately wounded, but while in

Frank Johnston was in immediate command of a section art of the day, at the first of the fighting, Johnston's section and Ratcliff's, the latter commande section under the immediate command of Lieutenant Johnston. A shot from the enemy's artillery stack the axle of the gun under command of Lieutenant Johnston, throwing the gun from the trunnion bedcaps, which Johnston had been asked to send. Johnston also sent a message that he was expecting reiere sent back and forth between Pemberton and Johnston.

Unjust charge. --Frank Johnston and A. A. Raine were summoned before the Recorder yesterday, for threatening Geo. E. Castor. It appeared that the parties, who are members of volunteer companies and men with strong Southern proclivities, becoming acquainted with the fact that Castor had voted for the Black Republican President, waited on him at a store where he was employed, on 13th street, and informed him that his presence in this community was not desirable, and advised him to leave. The complaint was dismissed.
ps. Action is the panacea for an army; indolence in its bane. If it keep in motion, the minds of the soldiers are always occupied, and their physical powers brought into play. If it keep to its encampments, the monotonous routine of duties soon wears down the spirits of the soldiers; physical exertion is almost wholly suspended, mind and body becomes relaxed, and dissase then steps in to do us tenfold more harm than would a dozen pitched battles. The announcement to the troops by either Johnston or Beauregard, that active operations were about to be commenced, would, like magic, out down our lists of sick, and infuse fresh vigor into the frames of those who have just emerged from the hospitals. But this announcement, from present appearances, is far in the distance. Once in a while Beauregard tosses a hope to us. Not long since he told the Marylanders that he intended, with his own hands, to plant the battle flag of their regiment upon the Battle monument in Baltimore city. His
, cuts off the communication between Memphis and Bowling Green, from which the latter is depencent for its supplies, and isolates Columbus from Bowling Green; so that for all military purposes communication is cut off between the rebels-at these points. No doubt the Federal force will push on until they reach the Nashville and Memphis Railroad, near Camden, Tenn.--This point, once in our possession, will cut off Hickman and Memphis from Nashville. This accomplished, then good-bye to Gens, Johnston, Beauregard, Buckner, and the rebel host. There will be no necessity then to attack Columbus or Bowling Green.--Starvation will do the work. The New Orleans Delta, in a late edition, says:" The safety of the whole South depends on the result of the battle at Columbus. This place once taken, there can be no effectual resistance at other points." In military philosophy a position turned and besieged is equal to a place captured. Hence, according to the New Orleans Delta, the safety of the
the Legion, were enlisted here after the commencement of the war; Capt. Hiram B, Dickinson of the former, and Capt. Gus. Wallace, of the latter, reported captured by the enemy, are well known citizens of Richmond. Lieut. Miller, of the Jackson Guard, is said to be mortally wounded. Major Hugh W. Fry, who is among the prisoners, has many friends here, who regret his misfortune, but who are proud to believe that he sustained himself gallantly in the fight, and the same remark applies to Frank Johnston, of the Blues, as brave a young man as ever shouldered a musket. The telegraph informs us that our killed and wounded amounts to 300, while that of the enemy reaches 1,000. The reader will find some further particulars of the affair in our Norfolk letters, from which it appears that the infamous scoundrels have shelled and burnt the pleasant little town of Elizabeth City, and are threatening Edenton. Their operations in that quarter, however, will be limited, and instead of depres
