the army. Well, you have heard from "reliable gentlemen"--news carriers in these times are always "reliable," according to the papers — how Johnston whipped Patterson's whole army, when the armies were seven miles apart — all about the Yankees crossing the Potomac; but you didn't hear how gallantly 380 (and some of them sick,)e, while the balls flew around him like hail. That was all the fight. Our men retired in good order, losing only two and taking five prisoners from the enemy. Patterson's lying dispatch to Washington makes it out that he gained a tremendous victory; but, bah ! Yankees can't help lying; it is born in them and nourished by educatifew are sick from it. Hundreds of the sick, with imprudent bravery, deserted the hospitals and went out to join in the fight. Thus ended this expedition to whip Patterson, and various are the opinions of it. All think Johnston acted prudently, but all regret that we had no fight. And here we are stationed, all around this place,
nounced the volunteer movement in England, and ridiculed as a ridiculous bugbear the idea of a French invasion. France. The recognition of Italy by France had been formally announced in the Moniteur, and by Baron Ricasoli in the Italian Parliament.

Samuel Albertus, brother of Captain Albertus, of the Wise Artillery, and editor of the Secession organ, the Virginia Republarches an additional regiment will be required to protect property.--The Commanding General has given strict orders, but as yet no example has been made. Gen. Patterson's dispatch relative to the number of the enemy engaged at Hainesville on Monday, has been sadly perverted by the telegraphic operators. His letter-book showsst toward the supposed position of the enemy. Gen. Cadwallader and staff rode in the advance of the column. In the affair at Hainesville, the other day, Gen. Patterson commanded in person. From Western Virginia. Buckhannon, July 8. --A dispatch received here says that Gen. McClellan's column is within one mile o
n men arrested a deaf mute, a pupil of the Columbian Institution, "on suspicion." The report (Federal) of the Confederate loss at Martinsburg has been greatly overrated as to the killed, wounded and prisoners. A gentleman just from there informs me that he supposed he saw all the prisoners, and that instead of there being more than 200, there were but five. The same gentleman states that McMullin's Rangers, (Philadelphia rowdy firemen,) were appointed to the right of the column by Gen. Patterson, but that on the first rush of the Confederate cavalry they broke, and each running for a tree, esconsed himself. This action of the Rangers is credited through the Northern journals as a peculiar mode of fighting The Message does not excite any comment in this city, the points set forth therein being already exhausted by the Northern newspapers.
