e miles distant from the town. In order to enter Lynchburg they will have to cross the river, which, unless they are supplied with pontoons, may be a matter of some difficulty. Measures have been taken to resist the capture of the place, which we hope will prove successful. The Yankees have certainly been at Lexington; but the report that they burnt the Military Institute is without foundation. Forrest and Morgan at work. Official information was received on Saturday from Gen. S. D. Lee that a column of the enemy, 13,000 strong, had left Memphis, and was moving towards the rich prairie region of Mississippi. The press telegram, which we publish this morning, gives the cheering intelligence that this movement has been meet and successfully defeated by Gen. Forrest. The Northern news informs us that Gen. John H. Morgan is again on the war path, and moving with success through Kentucky. This agrees with information we had previously received through Southern channel

the Valley, but the information is gathered exclusively from Southern sources. Morgan captured Mount Sterling, Ky., on the 8th, destroyed the bridges, tore up the track of the Kentucky Central Railroad between Cynthiana and Paris, captured a passenger train, occupied Paris, and destroyed an important trestle work at that point. His forces are estimated at 2,500. The Herald pitches into the Times, of Tuesday, for the publication of a long account of the battle of the 3d between Lee and Grant. The Times claims that it was the most important battle of the war, confesses that Grant was badly beaten, and that the rebels were undoubtedly successful.--The Herald says the account was published solely to defeat Grant's nomination for the Presidency, and that it was successful. Gold closed on the 8th at 194¼. A telegram from Sherman, dated Ackworth Pass, June 7, 6 P. M, says that he has been to Altoona Pass, and finds it admirably adapted for his purposes — it is the
From North Mississippi. Meridian, June 11. --Lee and Forrest have routed the Yankee column near Baldwin, in North Mississippi, capturing 200 wagons heavily loaded with stores of all descriptions. Forrest made a forced march to meet the enemy. The Yankees are more destructive than ever before in the State. Marmaduke has erected another battery on the Mississippi river at Sunny Side, below Greenville, and has a number of Yankee boats hemmed up. He had destroyed three steamers up to the 7th inst. [another Dispatch.] Mobile, June 11th. --A special dispatch to the Tribune, dated Baldwin, June 11th, says that Forrest made a forced march and threw his command between the Yankee advance and Baldwin. He held them, by severe and gallant fighting, for five hours, when Buford struck them on the flank, driving them four miles. An official note says the enemy were routed, and that we captured over 200 wagons loaded with stores, and many prisoners. The destruction
From Gen. Lee's army. Store's Farm, June 12. --There is no change in the relative situations of the two armies, and save an occasional discharge of artillery and active sharpshooting on the part of the enemy, there is nothing doing. Scouts report Grant to be tearing up the York River Railroad. Grant is very heavily fortified on our front, and his lines in some places are within fifty yards of ours.
at Copenhagen. Secondly, they hope to starve the population of Richmond into the humor for hailing them as deliverers. Lastly and principally, they hope to starve Lee's army, and thereby force him to abandon his position. These are hopeful projects, it must be confessed, and well worthy of the brain that conceived them. The onlit which we are glad to see excited. They teach the people that war, everlasting war is preferable to submission or even to compromise. As to their effect upon Gen. Lee's operations they will have none whatever. They will not gain Grant an inch of ground or a single advantage. Lee has him by the throat, and he will not releaseLee has him by the throat, and he will not release him, let him plunge and kick as he may. In the meantime the truth begins to leak out at the North. The Times, for whatsoever purpose it is not material, so far as we are concerned, has told the truth, in a modified form at least. It has revealed the fact, so carefully concealed by Stanton, that Grant was badly beaten on the

disposed to think the estimate of our contemporary much more nearly correct than ours, and we believe even his estimate to be exaggerated. The country owes Gen. Lee a debt of everlasting gratitude for the vigor, perseverance, and skill with which he has conducted this campaign. We are confident that there is nothing comparae loss. The only defensives campaign of modern times which can be compared to this, is Wellington's in Portugal, in 1810. Compare the two, and the campaign of Lee will be found to be infinitely the more brilliant.--Portugal was threatened by an army of 70,000 men under Massena. Wellington met him on the frontier, and repulseying off his cavalry dismounted for the same reason. Wellington followed, yet even then did not attack him, but suffered him to gain the frontier and recruit. Lee had none of these advantages. He had no Torres Vedras on which he could fall back. He had no fleet to supply him with everything he wanted. He had an enemy in hi
