On the morning of Monday, the troops having rested on the field, and reinforced by Gen.

Attention, Marylanders. --All native born or adopted citizens of Maryland, now serving in the different regiments of Gen Johnston's army, will be interested in reading "Special Orders, No. 107," of Adjutant General and Inspector, in to-day's paper. The object in view is highly important, and all refugees from Maryland, in the army of the Confederate States, will at once perceive the necessity of organizing the "Maryland Line," around which may cluster the same glories that keeps alive the memory of its revolutionary namesake.

, upon the result of the battle to be fought near this city within a few days, and which is liable to be precipitated at any moment, and yet you will find the extensive hotels and boarding houses, the splendid saloons, places of amusement, and the beautiful streets and public grounds of the beautiful city, all crowded with soldiers and able-bodied men capable of bearing arms. Thousands of these men are now here, while their brave companions in arms are enduring the hardships and privations of the camp, fighting almost daily, and liable to be brought into a general engagement with the enemy at any moment, which may decide the fate of Richmond. If the beautiful city of Richmond should be lost, like many other unfortunate beauties, her attractions will be the cause of her fall.--With the aid of the men, who have been allured from the camp by the seductive attractions of this beautiful city, Gen. Johnston can drive the Yankee army from the Pe- or make them prisoners. Marion.

ts of the whole war. It will prove, if we are not mistaken, the turning point in the affairs of the West. The Western people, discouraged by frequent failures, will be reanimated to the point of giving an irresistible impulse to our military proceedings. The winter campaign in that quarter, so largely counted on by the enemy, will have proved a failure even before it shall have begun.

The country in its rear is broken and rolling, and strong positions, where a small army may set a large one at defiance, sound everywhere. Advantage, we understand, has been taken to the almost of all the local features which i

Their pickets were soon driven in, and their whole force took refuge in the houses of the town, from which they opened fire on our men--Col.
