Hallack is an old engineer--one of your "book men," and he is advancing "by the card," spading as he comes Perhaps a mile and a half a day, or even less, is his greatest speed. His advance is already within two and a half miles of our entrenchments at certain points. There they will remain until the rear forces are in position. --Fighting between their pickets and ours takes place daily, but, as at Mason's and Munson's Hills on the Potomac, with no significant results. This is the "small fry" of the campaign, and the parties engaged consider themselves fortunate in being thus relieved from the monotony of camp. The great advantage we possess over the enemy is in our ability to move our entire army to a given point within three or four hours. Thus we can concentrate rapidly and effectively. The Federals, on the contrary, are compelled to make long detours, which occupy a day or more.

Recently, however, I learn that Beauregard has given orders to purchase freely of vegetables and fresh meat, so that the needy portion of the army will be soon supplied.--Most of the sick have been sent away. Whole regiments are indisposed and unfit for duty, but this is only a temporary illness, resulting from the causes above stated. They could fight if necessary to- morrow. Yesterday we sent through the lines one hundred and nine Federal prisoners, who have been paroled. Probably the same number of Confederates will be paroled by the enemy. Apologetic.--If anybody complains of the stupidity of this letter, tell the "he, she, or it," that your correspondent is on his back, platonically enduring the most perseveringly pertinacious of chills and fever, and that his head is at this moment buzzing like the inside of an overturned bee-hive. Yours, woefully, Quel Qu'un.

first cause is removed there is little prospect of improvement. Ice is selling at Memphis at three and five cents per pound; but not a pound have I seen here. Vegetables also seem to be in abundance there. On a late visit I enjoyed strawberries, asparagus, peas, beets, and various other agreeable culinary concoctions, yet nothing of the kind is sent to the poor sick soldiers here, only 90 miles distant, and several trains a day constantly in motion.

In his second or that which provides for defensive operations, having no redoubtable gunboats to scatter their big shell among us, he must compensate for their absence by erecting earthworks behind which he can successively retire as we press on, and possibly prevent an utter rout.

Coriet, Miss., May 17, 1862. Twelve o'clock M., and not a sign or sound from the enemy to-day. The sun pours down its hot and scorching rays; the air is filled with clouds of excruciatingly fine dust, which, ceremony, penetrates everywhere, the streets are almost deserted of beings, and men and animals move lazily about their tasks, as if they had yielded to the general languor. Not even a rumor ripples over the surface of this army ocean, to break the monotony of its calm, and we who float on the tide are drifting towards inertness and indifference. Oh! for some grand excitement, some sudden intelligence that shall flash along the wires of the heart, and stir this sluggish mass into its former life; something that will call out man and beast; set every
