He confirms the reported evacuation of Jacksonville and Fernandina. He states that our forces made an advance on Jacksonville on Tuesday, and challenged the enemy for a fight. The enemy refused to come to time, and the day sent a flag of truce, which was met by Col. Davis, their object being to inform us that Jacksonville and Fernandina would be evacuated at 10 o'clock that night. About 6 o'clock that evening the enemy were to rush pell-mell aboard of their boats and hastily steamed off. Our forces soon after entered the city. They found strong works which had been erected by the enemy. All the guns had been removed. The enemy carried away with them the traitors whose names we gave in a previous number of the Dispatch.

She is the same old Mag as when you knew her at school. Kate Robinson is still there. Her father commands a battery of artillery in Eastern Virginia, under General Shields, and was in the late action at Winchester. Lou. is at home now, having just returned from a long visit to Minnesota. Hettle ailer is at home. The rest of your girls I know nothing about. Tattco has just sounded, and "taps" will soon be, when all lights in camp must go out. Hoping you may consider this worth answering, and that soon, I remain, as ever, yours, Will B. S. You need not be alarmed about your letters, as I barn all up as soon as read. I do not want the Secesh to get hold of them and sent South as a relic, the way we do theirs.

The War.Summary of recent Events. from the Southern exchanges we copy the following interesting summary: The Florida Coast. The Quincy (Fla.) Dispatch, of the 12th inst., says Two more Yankee prisoners have arrived in Tallahassee from Jacksonville. They report themselves as deserters, and say they were treated very badly, and had received no pay for a long time. The prisoners were in charge of Capt. C. A. Goe, who arrived in Quincy on Thursday night. He confirms the reported evacuation of Jacksonville and Fernandina. He states that our forces made an advance on Jacksonville on Tuesday, and challenged the enemy for a fight. The enemy refused to come to time, and the day sent a flag of truce, which was met by Col.

Last Monday four thousand sick were sent to Cincinnati and Louisville — There was great demoralization in the Federal army, and thousands had deserted. Col. Buford's Kentucky regiment refused to go into Nashville. Hundreds were deserting daily, in squads of 15 or 20. The people in the vicinity of Nashville show the greatest loyalty to the Confederacy. The force at Shelbyville is twenty-five hundred. The remainder of the Federal force is stretched from Pulaski, via Columbia, towards Savannah. No troops have gone towards Chattanooga. Blue rockets were seen going up from west to east on Sunday evening--supposed to be signals for the enemy to hasten their troops. The 1st Michigan regiment has said that if the war did not cease in thirty days they would lay down their arms. Many had applied for the writ of habeas corpus to get out of the Federal army; they

As you wish to be posted in my moves, I will attempt to give you some of them. We left Paducah March the 8th, in consort with some 80 steamboats filled with troops, which, by the way, was the grandest sight I ever saw — and why not? That number of boats, crowded with uniformed men, flags flying and bands playing, must surely have been grI barn all up as soon as read.

. It is, indeed, a very lucky and singular incident. From the Southwest. The following special dispatch to the New Orleans Picayune, dated Corinth, April 12th, mentions circumstances not heretofore noticed: Mutual agreements have been signed, permitting surgeons and their attendants, on both sides, to attend to the wounded who are not removable from the battle field, and to be exempt from capture as prisoners. A gentleman from Nashville says that Yankee telegrams from Pittsburg had been received there, stating their killed, wounded, and missing to be ten thousand--six thousand prisoners. Our loss in killed and wounded they state at two thousand; fifty prisoners. Direct information from Nashville, on the morning of the 6th, states that Gen. Dumont is the Military Governor of the post, with a brigade of twenty-five hundred men. Andy Johnson wanted ten thousand to protect Nashville. Fourteen thousand are sick (?)

d for a minute. How much longer our services will be required, is impossible to say; but one thing, the army do not care how soon it will end. A great many place the 4th of July as the day when we will be mustered out, but it appears to me that is too soon; not that the war will last longer than that, but our services will be required for some time after cessation of hostilities. One thing certain, Tittle, as soon as it is over and I have seen my mother, the next place will be Terre Haute, so that your curiosity as well as my own may be relieved. But when you do see me, may it not be possible you will be disappointed? Perhaps you may expect to see a nice, handsome intelligent, affable young man, without spot or blemish. In either event, you will be gravely disappointed. What opinions have been formed of you, I will tell when we first meet, but I know there will be no disappointment with me. Do you recollect, some two or three years since, you gave me your picture?

fficers and men with the conviction that there must be discipline in this army, a strict discipline, but not humiliating, a subordination to authority founded on a sense of its absolute necessity for our success, rather than upon the mere orders of service. And the General commanding feels assured he will be able to lead you successfully, to the credit of your country and your renown. But otherwise he can anticipate only disaster and the disgraceful issue of this campaign. From South Mills, N. C. The Norfolk Day Book, of Tuesday, says: We learn that on yesterday the Federals sent a flag of truce to South Mills for the purpose of recovering their dead; when, to and behold! nobody was found there save an old negro man. Whether they entered into negotiations with the negro, or if so whether be granted their request, has not yet transpired. We further learn that when the fact became known to the Feds that the foe they so much dreaded was not at South Mills, the

The Michiganders then said that they would kill their officers in the first fight, raise the white flag, and go over to the Confederate army. One Pennsylvania and one Iowa regiment had mutinied and refused to go farther with the Federal army. Their arms were taken from them and they were sent North. Gen. Buell's entire command consisted of ninety-nine regiments, ranging from 253 to 481 men, making 35,000. Deducting the sick, the deserters, and the mutinous troops sent back, it would leave Buell's force at Savannah about 22,000.
