to the hour of going to press last night. Reports, as usual, were abundant and favorable, and if we were to credit one-half that were in circulation last evening, we might reasonably conclude that our army is now in a position to demand the surrender of Washington. In the present condition of affairs, however, these statements are to be received with great allowance. Passengers by the train yesterday afternoon state that it was currently reported at Gordonsville, that the Federal Generals Pope and McDowell had been slightly and banks mortally wounded at Manassas, and that Sigel, the Dutch General who figured so conspicuously in the Missouri campaign, had been killed. These reports may be correct, but there is no official information upon which to base them. It was further rumored that we had captured some seven thousand prisoners, all of whom were paroled on the field of battle, and that the corps of Gen. Jackson had advanced as far as Fairfax Court-House. We of course have
The reported defeat of Pope and banks — a Confederate victory in Tennessee. Mobile, September 2. --A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register, dated Tupelo, September 1st, says: Our scouts from Luke, yesterday, (Rosecrans's headquarters,) report that intelligence had been received by telegraph that Pope and Banks had met with a terrible defeat, losing 30,000 prisoners. The commanding General places every confidence in the report, coupled, as it is, with other statements rePope and Banks had met with a terrible defeat, losing 30,000 prisoners. The commanding General places every confidence in the report, coupled, as it is, with other statements regarding Federal movements which he knows to be true. The same scouts report the destruction of an important railroad bridge in Virginia. Gen. Armstrong's official dispatch, dated six pairs south of Bolivar, Tenn, states that he attacked the enemy in front of Bolivar on the 30th ult., running them into the town, taking seventy-one prisoners, including four commissioned officers. West Tennessee is now nearly clear of invaders.
Now is the time. Fortune has again crowned our arms with signs success. The shattered columns of McClellan and Pope are flying before our victorious legions. The plains of Manassas have a double claim upon history. It remains for the Congress of the Confederate States to say whether they shall a second time be associated with torpor, hesitation, and the results that usually follow defeat instead of victory. This last victory has brought us to the very door of the Federal capital. Whether it will be followed up to its extreme results will depend entirely upon the judgment of the Commander-in-Chief, which, it is but doing him bare justices to say, has thus for proved itself equal to any emergency. That judgment will, in turn, be decided by the force and condition of the army, and the prospect of success in advancing or merely holding its present ground. A successful blow at Washington would make the enemy reel and stagger like a drunken man. The question is, can such a b
