igence of the landing of a large body of Federal troops at Aquia Creek on Sunday last. The supposition is that they came from Washington. Should the report prove correct, it would indicate that they intend to make a flank movement in the direction of Richmond, while McClellan plays the port of a decoy upon the Peninsula. Another report is that General Ewell's division has fallen back from the Rappahannock to Gordonsville. It is inferred from this that a junction of the forces of Generals Jackson and Ewell is in contemplation. Advices from the Peninsula inform us that the skirmishing continues, and our troops feel perfectly confident of a victory whenever the enemy shall accept the offer of battle. Our mails from the Southwest are several days overdue, and we have no means of procuring any reliable intelligence from that quarter. The telegraph has a report, "brought by passengers," that Nashville has been retaken by our forces under Generals Kirby Smith and Humphr

important Cabinet meeting was held on Thursday morning connected with the current rumor of the day. The Federal accounts from Yorktown claim that their gunboats have advanced within two miles of Yorktown, and that in bombarding the place they had silenced three guns. The Expedition of the enemy to Pass Christian. The New Orleans Delta is informed, by a resident of Pass Christian, that on the morning of the 4th four of the enemy's gunboats — the New London, Calhoun, Hatteras and Jackson, accompanied by the armed transport Henry Lewis, having on board about 750 men, Connection regiment, mostly composed of Irish, under command of Major Strong--appeared in front of Pass Christian, near the wharf. They proceeded immediately to shot and shell the town. This was done without warning. No request was made for the women and children to leave. These fled on the commencement of the firing, in the wildest dismay and confusion, and caught shelter in the woods. The firing was kept
a mule and cart in the evening to take him away, since which time he was seen safe on this side the lake. Capt. Rucker and Col. T. J. Finnie got off safely. We learn that all the Southern Guards escaped, except Frank Harrison, who was left in the hospital; also Capt. Hoadley and ten of his men; Lieut. Torrey and thirty nine men; Lieut. Torrey and thirty nine men; Lieut. M. Tresevant, 40th regiment; Robert Pitman and Jno. Ginnis, of Baker's regiment; Captain Robert Lewis and seven men. Captain Jackson, Lieut. McClure, and their commands, are supposed nearly all to be safe. The same is believed of Captains Stirling, Rume, and Caruthers. The adventures of many that escaped war of great interest. A gentleman, from whom we have received many of the above particulars, after starting from the island with his party, in the direction of Tiptonville, became suspicious that there was danger in that direction, and a detour was made by waving through the overflowed country. Thus the town
ecessity. Even your enemies could not help bearing testimony to your bravery and valor.--They say they never saw such splendid fighting and old Shields says, in his report, 'the bravery and discipline of the enemy was such that in the whole fight and retreat there was never the slightest panic.' I wish you could have held your ground, but hope for better next time. "I suppose you will stand by the just cause until it is triumphant, as it must be sooner of later. I admire your heroic Jackson, as Capt.--called him and think Col. Ashby a real here. I have watched his course for a long time. "I hope the Stone Wall will be stronger next time, and the enemy be dashed to pieces against it. The Yankees are desperate. They have collected the largest army they can, and they are armed equipped, and provided in the best possible style, and enraged that the rebels won't give up. They are really vengeful but the firm, determined spirit of the South never daunted — if derived off at o
