A letter found on the battle-ground, addressed to a Federal soldier, admits that "McClellan is getting outgeneraled very often," and goes on to say--"I suppose you heard about the beating Banks got.--The "rabble

The following is the way the defeat is smothered up: Last night the town was considerably excited by a mischievous rumor to the effect that there had been heavy fighting on the Peninsula, and that McClellan had met with a bad reverse. Such rumors have usually been put in circulation by Secesh, but the present one was traced to an employes at the Capital, who stated it on the authority of members of Congress.

Such rumors have usually been put in circulation by Secesh, but the present one was traced to an employes at the Capital, who stated it on the authority of members of Congress. There was not a word of truth in the story, and it seems to have been set afloat in a spirit of revenge by some of the junketing marplote who were so deservedly set to the right shout by Gen. McClellan, on their endeavor to predicate to his front, on their late visit to the Peninsula.

It says there can be little doubt that the Confederates intended to inflict a crushing blow and that they failed in their object. Th has been again imposed on the Federal Generals of confessing themselves worsted by opponents whom they affirmed to despise.

The London Morning Herald thinks that General McClellan's plans have been disturbedGeneral McClellan's plans have been disturbed, and it may even turn out that they have been spoiled by the vigilance and enterprise of the enemy. The London Herald believes that the Confederates are likely to defend Richmond to the last extremity, and that one attack will now succeed another until the city is entered, or the Federals routed and driven across the Chickaho
e movements. Our news column, devoted to the movements of the armies below Richmond, gives all the information we have. Indeed, facts concerning the operations of our forces are hard to obtain. Since Tuesday, up to yesterday morning, there had been no fighting of a serious nature. The enemy was employed in escaping, and in selecting positions of safety or defence for those who did not get off altogether. It is reported that he had on Saturday a large force in position near Mr. Hill Carter's probably on his estate, industriously employed in strengthening its defences. It was also reported that strong reinforcements had been sent to join McClellan and had arrived. As the enemy commands the river, he has many advantages; but we suppose our Generals have an eye to these and have taken measures accordingly. A great battle was anticipated on Saturday, and again on yesterday, to take place at the point above named, where the enemy was apparently disposed to make a stand.

He and his staff have reached New York. The fight caused a decline in stocks. Petersburg, July 6.--The Yankees have buried over 500 of their dead at Shirley, and left over 100 wounded, who fell into our hands. Our pickets now occupy Shirley. Nine more prisoners have been brought to Petersburg. They say that McClellan was in a strong position at Berkeley, that he has been reinforced by Shields's division, has 80 to 100,000 men, and will give battle. Balloons were sent up yesterday and to-day. The wagon train is still visible, and the tents of the enemy dot the country for miles. A member of Sickles's brigade says that out of 5,000 men not more than 500 are left.
Affairs in Memphis. Jackson, Miss., (via Mobile,) July 5. --The Memphis Argus and Avalanche had both been suppressed — the former for asking Grant's permission to publish the Southern account of McClellan's defeat at Richmond, the latter for alleged incendiary sentiments published in their paper. The Confederate pickets are now within four miles of Memphis. Warm work is expected. Seventeen more of the enemy's pickets were found dead last Wednesday morning. The Northern paparm work is expected. Seventeen more of the enemy's pickets were found dead last Wednesday morning. The Northern papers, of the 30th ult., are perfectly silent on McClellan's "On to Richmond." Young Napoleon's defeat is not mentioned in any Yankee paper. A dispatch from Cairo states that two companies of Illinois cavalry, whilst going up the river from Memphis, mutinied and took possession of the steam boat. The cause is not assigned. They were arrested on their arrival at Cairo.
