he officer fell dead from his saddle in full sight of the Texan. The War in the West. The Memphis Avalanche, of the 2d, says: A great battle is believed imminent on the Tennessee. We have no advices from Buell's movements for some days past near Columbia. We do not doubt soon, the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, from Decatine to Stevenson, will be taken possession or by a of Buell's command. It should be us a personal affair, and each should be The Federals are making a desperate effort to Memphis; but the movements west of the Mississippi river will soon give them something to do to save themselves and their own cities. They will loss a large Western city before they take Memphis.--Mark our prediction! The Lynchburg Virginia mentions a report, brought by passengers from the West, that the New York Herald, received at Nashville, contained an account of a battle between Price and Siegel, said to have been fought on the 26th March, in which the latter who

That the thanks and congratulations of the war Department are rendered to Major-General Halleck for the signal ability and success that have distinguished all the military operations of his department, and for the spirit and courage manifested by the army under his command, under every hardship and against every odds, in attacking, pursuing, and destroying the enemy wherever he could be found. Third. That the thanks of the Department are also given to Generals Our and Siegel, and the officers and soldiers of their commands, for the matchless gallantry at the bloody battle of Pea Ridge, and to Major-Generals Grant and Buell, and their forces, for the glorious repulse of Beauregard, at Pittsburg, in Tennessee, and to Major-General Pope and his officers and soldiers for the bravery and skill displayed in their operations against the rebels and traitors entrenched at Island No.10, on the Mississippi river. The daring courage, diligent prosecution, persistent valor,
no suspicion was entertained of our advance, and that there were strong hopes of our effecting a complete surprise, and attacking the enemy before the large detachments encamped at various points in the surrounding country could rejoin the main body. I therefore endeavored to reach Bentonville, 11 miles distant, by a rapid march; but the troops moved so very slowly that it was 11 A. M. before the head of the leading division (Price's) reached the village, and we had the mortification to see Siegel's division, 7,000 strong, leaving it as we entered. Had we been an hour sooner, we should have cut him off with his whole force, and certainly have beaten the enemy the next day. We followed him, our advance skirmishing with his rear guard, which was admirably handled, until we had gained a point on Sugar Creek, about seven miles beyond Bentonville, and within one or two miles of the strongly entrenched camp of the enemy.

Do you remember Carthage — how Gen.

I think it is not right to ignore so entirely the services of an adopted population of about seven and a half millions of our twenty-three millions. We must fight here A correspondent of the Lynchburg Virginian, writing from camp, near Richmond, expresses himself as follows: I hope we have made our last retreat. We must of necessity fight here, or our army will be utterly demoralized. The men infinitely prefer fighting to the long and tedious forced marches. Richmond must

He then told them that he had a Sharpe's rifle and two revolvers, and he proposed to "paddle his own canoe." Kansas tells who had succeeded in clearing the rapids. [Enthusiastic cheers.] In conclusion, the Colonel paid an eloquent tribute to the Germans of Missouri, whose valor, patriotism, and devotion to liberty, had undoubtedly saved the State. He paid a tribute to Gen. Siegel, and in closing stated that with the Germans, he would always be found a lover of liberty, that all men might recognize in Jennison the Jayhawker, while a faithful soldier of the Union, and undoubted, undisguised, fighting Abolitionist. He was greeted with loud cheers, and after music from the band, the assemblage dispersed. Sickles and his Brigade.

Rebel opinions of one Generals — rebel troops. The rebels manifested the greatest curiosity to know who our Generals are, and what their antecedents are. Of General Banks they have a very low opinion. Had it not been for their own blunders, they say, we should every one have been bagged on Sunday. For Siegel.

ral train yesterday afternoon brought to the city four Federal prisoners, two of them members of the 1st Connecticut cavalry, one of the Maryland cavalry, and the other of the 60th New York regiment. The Connecticut men were captured while on picket a few miles from Madison Court House, on Tuesday morning. These prisoners state that the main body of the Federal army is in Culpeper, near the Rapidan river, and that a forward movement is daily contemplated. At Madison Court-House the force consists of about 3,000 infantry, with some artillery and cavalry, under the immediate command of the Dutch General, Siegel, The representative of Maryland is a sharp-faced German, named Kephart, who joined the regiment at Winchester, where he says he lived for sometime previous to his enlisting. The New Yorker is a rough-looking customer, who wishes to claim the credit of deserting from the Federal army, stating that he crossed the river with that intention, when he was overhauled by our pickets.
Pure British. The London Times calls the Yankees a "mongrel race," and speaks of us as the genuine descendants of Englishmen. We certainly have much more English blood in our veins than the Yankees or rather English, Scotch, and Welsh — that is British blood. Look, for instance, at this list of Generals, taken at random: Lee, (English;) Johnston (Scottish;) Longstreet, Jackson, Jones, Pemberton Davis, Johnson, Ewell, Pendleton, Early, Garland Bragg, Smith, Stevens, Mason, Ashby, Hill. Anderson, Whiting, Pryor, Randolph, (English,) Stuart, Robertson, Buchanan. (Scotch;) and Morgan (Welsh.) Now, look at the Yankees. We seem to be copying from the tomb-stones of Frankfort on the Rhine; Schenke, Stelnwchr, Schœfpff, Siegel, Rosecranz, Carl Schurz, Heintzelman, and Blencker

The arm of the former was torn off by a shell, and he died very shortly afterwards from the flow of blood, and Trimble was knocked dead from his horse by the explosion of a shell. Having put the forces of McDowell and Siegel in rapid motion for the field of action, Gen. Pope, with his staff, accompanied by Gen. McDowell and his staff, immediately proceeded together from their headquarters to the front. As they passed Ricketts's division, and the head of Siegel's armSiegel's army corps, that lined the road for the whole six miles, each regiment halted for the instant, wheeled into line, and gave Gen. Pope three cheers and a tiger, and then wheeling again into marching column pushed forward with signal eagerness for the fray. At 7 o'clock P. M. Gens. Pope and McDowell reached the thickest of the fight, and the advance guard of Ricketts's coming up at the same time, took position immediately in the rear of that occupied by Gen. Banks's corps.

Culpeper Court-House, August 17. --Major Tifield, the officer having charge of railway affairs at this post, yesterday went with a constriction train as far as the Rapidan Station, but it being announced to him that a considerable body of the enemy were within gunshot of the river on the other side, it was denied injudicious to commence operations upon the bridge until our forces under Gen. Pope, who were then on the march should reach the river, to cover our workmen. Major Tifi
