g between Gen. Evans's Brigade consisting of four regiments and five and twelve regiments of the enemy, and five batteries of artillery. The Federals generally whipped with a loss of 75 killed, prisoners and six pieces of cannon. The reminder of the force were driven into the is indifferently small." This news comes to us in such authentic that no room is left for doubt that Gen. Evans has gained a brilliant victory. The of Col. Baker the Black Republican number from Oregon, and Lincoln's mouthpiece in the Senate is a cause for especially congratulation. He was an Englishman by and it was this man who said, in the first of the long tirade of abuse of the South and Southern men, delivered at the late extra division of the Federal Congress, that every one of Southern soil should be reconquered: the stars and stripes should wave over and arsenal, and that if Southern would not conduct their State to the laws of the United State from Massachusetts and would be appointe
President Davis and President Lincoln. --By the Constitution of the United States and of the Confederate States, the President is Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy. In times of peace, and in the case of Presidents who have not been educated in the camp, the Executive of the United States has generally been content, in conformity with the wise suggestion of a former Chief Magistrate, to "leave military matters to military men" President Lincoln seems to act upon this principle, and to sedulously avoid all interference with the military control of the army. We are not disposed to dispute the discretion of this proceeding in his case, but he mightident dare not imitate? The President of the Confederate States, in his presence at the battle of the 21st, presented a contrast to the skulking cowardice of Lincoln which is appreciated by all the world.--The man who brought on this war and is responsible for every drop of blood shed in it, was not there, and never will be, e
From Kentucky. the reported skirmish at Greensburg--Gen. Hardee's movements — the Strength of Lincoln's forces, &c. Nashville, Oct. 21. --It is announced now that the reported skirmish at Greensburg, Ky., was premature. The Bowling Green correspondent of the Union and American says that Gen. Hardee's command did not reach there until the afternoon of the 18th inst. He was delayed by a sudden rise in the Little Barren. The Lincolnites fled several hours before Hardee on of the 18th inst. He was delayed by a sudden rise in the Little Barren. The Lincolnites fled several hours before Hardee arrived. The town was almost deserted by the citizens. Ward has retreated from Muldraugh's hill, where from Sherman's manœnvring no stand could be made. Rousseau still occupies Nolin, with several thousand men, and does not seem able or disposed to make an advance. The entire Lincoln force between Louisville and Nolin does not exceed fifteen hundred men
rt in the councils of the next Congress — Such Mr. W. is known to be, while his fine talents, and his practical business character, would make him stand prominent among the intelligent and efficient men who, we trust will compose that body. It is hoped that other candidates will follow the example of Mr W., and thus prevent the election of one who, it is suspected, is put forward by our so-called Union men and broken-down politicians. We have some few of these so called Union men left among us. They, for the most part, profess attachment to us, but there is an evident leaning to the opposite side. This morning a live Yankee was brought up from Pig Point. He is a Lieutenant in Lincoln's navy, and was attached to the Minnesota. His statement is that he deserted, having become disgusted with his associations. He gives a great deal of information, and seems to be well posted. It is said that a portion of the Federal fleet below has been sent off since Saturday. Unco.
on of their support. It may perhaps, be proper to state for the information of those who are unacquainted with my past political opinions, that I was an early and zealous advocate of the separation of Virginia from the Northern States. In the Virginia Convention, before the 4th day of March last, I submitted the first resolutions which were offered in favor of immediate, absolute, unconditional separation. I was unwilling that Virginia should remain for one moment under the dominion of Mr. Lincoln, or hold political fellowship with those who had elected him upon the principles of the Chicago platform. And I was, moreover, convinced that nothing could prevent the iniquitous war which is now upon us, but a firm united front on the part of the entire South. Other counsels however prevailed, and the day of separation was postponed. I refer to this subject now in order that it may be known what my own position has been heretofore, and not for the purpose of raising issues with those
of these faithful sons of Kentucky, Hon. Mr. Breckinridge, Preston, Marshall, and others, who have left their homes, now over run by Yankees, to uphold the banner of Southern independence. It is humiliating to think that any part of Kentucky should be desecrated by the footsteps of invaders — and such invaders! but, most of all, that Lexington, the home of Henry Clay, the garden spot of the State, the seat of its greatest intelligence, refinement and wealth, should be in the possession of Lincoln's armed menials. No wonder that her best citizens have left her for the Southern army and for a more genial clime. Even the clergy who are true to the South can no longer breathe that once pure and inspiring atmosphere. Among other departures, we hear that Rev. Dr. Morrison, Rector of the Episcopal Church of that city, has left his distinguished and influential position, and returned to his native Virginia. If a man of such lofty virtues and signal abilities feels compelled to come out
period of unparallel exertion and unheard of triumph were never, for any one year, so great as will be those of Old Age Lincoln at the close of the fiscal year ending 1st June, 1862. We perfectly comprehend the motives of the Lincoln GovernmeLincoln Government in plunging heading into this bottomless ocean of expenditure.--Indeed, if there had otherwise been any doubt about it, the New York journals would have sufficiently enlightened us. "Short and sweet,' was the favorite war cry. "Onward to Richmond" was the watch-word. Old Scott had told Lincoln that he would take Richmond by a mere flank march, and extinguish the "rebellion" in a single campaign, and Lincoln was fool enough to take the gasconade of the bragging old. "Failure" for gospel. Lincoln was fool enough to take the gasconade of the bragging old. "Failure" for gospel. He has already seen that it was anything else than gospel.--He has already met with a resistance which must convince him that it requires more money and better men than he can command to reduce these rebels of whom he speaks, and teaches his unders

Farnsworth will leave in two or three days, and, probably, two or three other regiments will leave this State "for the wars" within eight or ten days. Gen. Wool Sustains Fremont and Condemns the Administration. The following paragraph, from the New York Herald, of the 16th, plainly indicates a difference in sentiment between Lincoln and his Generals in regard to the conduct of Fremont: There is no doubt but it was intended by the "highest authorities" at Washington to displace Gen. Fremont, and give Gen. Wool command of the Western Department. But the veteran General looking over the field with the official records before him, showing the number of men and amount of material at the disposal of Fremont, would not take command unless largely reinforced. He would not attempt to achieve immense successes with inadeq
Who is the Count de Paris? --A correspondent of the Charleston Courier gives the following account of this individual, who recently volunteered in the Lincoln army and received an appointment on McClellan's staff: The Count de Paris is the son of the late Duke of Orleans, who was the oldest son of King Louis Phillippe of France. He is the Orleanist heir to the French throne, and if his grandfather had not set Lincoln the example of stifling the freedom of the press, the young man might have reigned as Francis III. He now serves as a captain in the rail-splitter's army. I sincerely hope that one of our sharp-shooters will pick off this young sprig of royalty. Should he and his companion be made to bite the dust, the Bonaparts who reigns in the ancient palaces of the Bourbons will smile grimly on our new Republic.
