g, or even indulging in improbabilities, I would say that a column of 1,000 Yankees planted in front of our Centreville batteries, backed by their present compliment of men, would receive, in a few hours fight, one of the worst thrashings at our hands ever awarded that enterprising race. But we look for said Yankees in vain. The glory of Israel has departed. Northern courage has been weighed in the balance and found wanting. Centreville will not be attacked in front this winter if George B. McClellan possesses the military acuteness accorded him by his admirers. His Leesburg movement was doubtless a sad miscarriage. His more recent attempt on the Potomac may be equally significant. Our wings are well protected. He has found this so to his chagrin, if not sorrow. What can he do?--Goaded on by the ultra Northern press; jeered and scoffed at by his former professed friends for his present inactivity; burdening the Government daily with a heavy war tax, he is either compelled to h

[correspondence of the Daily Dispatch.] Centreville, Nov. 25, 1861. Editors Dispatch:--In a communication sent you from, Charlottesville, I stated a report current there that Mr. S. W. Ficklin had probably been taken prisoner by the enemy. I am happy to inform you that he returned homications erected in this vicinity.

Let it come whenever General McClellan pleases, and our numbers will report them their full strength. It is a magnificent sight to stand on the parapet of one of the fortifications near Centreville, and see as it were spread out before you a city encompassing several miles.<
