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

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.

Hence, according to the New Orleans Delta, the safety of the

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
