e Commander-in-Chief, who fell at Shiloh, with the shout of victory in his ears, and now sleeps in the heroes grave, hallowed by the tears and blessings of a nation, has not left behind him much of worldly gear. It is not probable that the open hand of the generous soldier reserved much of the soldier's pay for the future wants and comfort of a large family. It therefore behooves a generous people, for whose liberties he tolled and suffered, and at last yielded his life, to see that his family, bereft of their support, shall be provided for in a manner that will not shame their gratitude. We are happy to state that East Tenne. He has the honor of the first movement in this laudable object. Our fellow citizen, C. M.

From General Banks the War Department are in receipt of a dispatch which states that in General Jackson's rebel camp it was believed that General Beauregard was dead — It is probable, however, that there is some mistake in the news, and that the intelligence of the death of General A. S. Johnston which has been confirmed by General Beauregard's dispatch, has in some measure been confounded with that of Gen. Beauregard himself. Later intelligence from Port Royal indicates that the operations of Gen.
