The Wat Jeff. Thompson's men fight. --A correspondent of the St. Louis Democrat describing the engagement at Fredericktown, says: And let me do justice to the enemy. They fought well and bravely when all the circumstance are considered. Some of the enemy performed deeds of heroism, worthy of a better cause. One of their cannon was placed in the woods, near the mouth of the lane, and was vigorously worked. As our forces advanced, they picked one after another of the gunners off till at last but a single one was left. He continued his work of loading and firing as fast as he could, nothing daunted. He seemed utterly oblivious to everything but the work before him, and made no motions towards retreat. At last he fell at his post, bravely and heroically.

The whereabouts of Gen. Jackson. Our contemporaries, both of the Yankee press and our own, seem to be much exercised on this subject. One thinks Jackson is at Winchester, another that he is at Martinsburg, a third that he is in Maryland, advancing upon Fredericktown, tearing up bridges as be goes and spreading terror among the Yankees generally. A gentleman who returned from the Valley a few days ago, reports him at Strasburg about the beginning of the present week; but who can tell where he may, be now? His movement are so rapid, that it is almost impossible to keep up with him. But of one thing we may feel assured, and that is that he is in the very place where he ought to be, let that place be what it may. The Lynchburg Republican says that at last accounts the enemy seemed to be gathering around him.

Yankee Perfidies. We are among the number of those who never had much faith in the cartel. We believed that, while we observed it, the Yankees would be sure to violate it.

If they did, then the cartel is a blank, for the Yankees can take the prisoners, as fast as we parole them, put them in their garrisons, and take the men whose places they supply for field service against us. The old Congress of the Revolution were a one ti
