. It is evident that the telegraph, acting under the control of the Government, suppressed the replies of Mrs. Tyler to Col. T.'s messages, and thus laid the toils for him: Newfort Barracks, Aug. 14th, 1861. Not having any positive information of the whereabouts of my wife, whom I had heard from but once since my resignation from the U. S. Army, and having reason to suppose she was in a community which did not sympathize with me in the great national struggle, I obtained from Gen. Beauregard a leave of absence of ten days for the purpose of finding her, with the intention of taking her to Virginia. Meeting Lieut. Waddy, recently resigned, I learned from him that my family was near Cincinnati. I repaired to Nashville, telegraphed twice; but could get no reply.--With a natural anxiety, but imprudently, as the sequel will show, I resolved to brave the dangers of an arrest by searching for it in Ohio. The cars which left Louisville at 11:30 were advertised to reach Cincinnat

20,000 Nineteen regiments, whose term of service was up, or would be within a week, all refused to stay an hour over their time, with the exception of four. Five regiments have gone home, two more go to-day, and three more to-morrow. To avoid being cut off with the remainder, I fell back and occupied this place."--This is, we think, one of the most astounding incidents in the history of war. It entirely agrees with the statement given by our special correspondent, that while the cannon of Beauregard were thundering in their ears, a regiment of volunteers passed him on their way home, their three months term of service being complete. If such a thing had happened to one corps, it might have been set down to the bad counsels of one or more discontented spirits, or to the injudicious conduct of some commanding officers. But here it is evident that the whole volunteer army of the Northern States is worthless as a military organization. It is useless to comment on the behavior of men wh
grandson of Mrs. Henry D. Gilpin, of this city. Upon the breaking out of the war he received a Lieutenant's commission in the Confederate army, and he was with Beauregard at Manassas.--This fact caused much uneasiness to his grandmother, and she determined to procure his discharge, if possible. A lady friend of Mrs. Gilpin attemted to accomplish this object, and, in a carriage, she succeeded in working her way through both lines, and into the rebel camp. Here she had an interview with Beauregard, who received her with much politeness, and promised to take the case into consideration, and, if possible, to comply with the request of the relative of the young man. After waiting for some time without hearing from Beauregard, application was made to Gen. Lee, and he complied with the request of the friends of Johnston, and discharged him from the service. He then joined his mother, at Warrenton, Va., and three weeks ago he succeeded in reaching Philadelphia, where he has made his ho

The present armistice granted by the Heavens being more effectual than any that could be vouchsafed by any earthly power, as far as any real, active operatid cease too soon, will insure an everlasting broil. With regard to volunteering for the war, many are still waiting the action of Virginia. A prudent, wise course by her will do much towards this important object. The departure of Gen. Beauregard for Kentucky has impressed the army with the importance of the mission on which he is sent. His name sends a thrill through every true Southern heart, and will, we trust, inspire the same confidence wherever he may go which is entertaine
Store wall Jackson --A correspondent asks, "Why is Gen. Jackson called Stone Wall Jackson !" We have one or two explanations of the origin of the sobriquet, The best one, and we believe the correct one, is: At the battle of Bull Run, while Jackson with his small force hold in check a much superior force of the enemy, Gen Beauregard, filled with admiration of his obdurate gallantry remarked to a brother officer, "See Jackson ! He stands firm as a stone-wall !"
Official report of the battle of Shiloh We present in another part of this morning's paper the official report of General Beauregard of the engagement at Shiloh. We deem it scarcely necessary to comment upon this admirable report, as it will doubtless attract attention and be read with interest by all who feel an interest in the success of Confederate arms.
The battle of Shiloh.Gen Beauregard's official report. Headq'rs Army of the Mississippi, Corinth, Miss, April 11, 1862. Generals — On the 2d ultimo, having ascertained conclusively, from the movements of the enemy on the Tennessee river, and from reliable sources of information, that his aim would be to out off my communications in West Tennessee with the Eastern and Southern States, by operating from the Tennessee river, between Crump's, Landing and Eastport, as a base, I determined to fall his designs by concentrating all my available forces at and around Corinth. Meanwhile, having called on the Governors of the States of Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana, to furnish additional troops, some of them, chiefly regiments from Louisiana, soon reached this vicinity, and, with: two divisions of General Polk's command from Columbus, and a fine corps of troops from Mobile and Pensacola, under Maj. Gen. Bragg, constituted the Army of the Mississippi. At the same ti

o the storm, yet he rose triumphantly above it. There is nothing yet, so far, then, to cause our people to weaken, but on the contrary their adversities should strengthen and purify their hearts. We must only become the more resolute and determined, and learn to bear up and struggle against every conceivable hardship, putting full faith and confidence in God, that he will yet give us the victory, secure to us independence and the blessings of peace. The following letter, from Gen. Beauregard to Gen. Bragg, gives evidence of the determination of both these gallant spirits to do all in their power to secure the discipline, preserve the gallantry and bravery of our army, and reward the deeds of distinction on the battle-field, as well as to punish those who may disgrace our colors. "Forward ! and always forward ! " will be our motto from this time henceforth, and the siege of Corinth shall see the beleaguers annihilated, and our army on the march to Nashville and Louisville:
