trious predecessors. Gen. Lee will not after his plans a jot or tittle. The feeling in this city is as it always has been — calm and determined. The citizens of Richmond have been too long familiar with the threatening demonstrations of the Yankees to be alarmed at them. They had rather any day see their city in ashes than in the possession of the Yankees; but they do not believe that it ever will be in their hands. It has been defended eight times by the Confederate army, to which Richmond has furnished her full quota, and if there were not troops enough to meet the ninth assault there are non- conscripts enough to take the field and aid them in again driving away the hordes that seek to gratify their fiendish malignity by the pillaging of this city and the persecution of her citizens. No community ever displayed a more loyal or determined spirit. They rely implicitly upon the indomitable courage of the Confederate troops, and, if need be, are ready to enter the breach with

nd upon all other citizens to organize companies for the defence of this city against immediate attack of the enemy. They are approaching, and you may have to meet them before Monday morning. I can do no more than give you this warning of their near approach. Remember New Orleans! Richmond is now in your hands. Let it not fall under the rule of another Butler. Rally, then, to your officers to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock, on Broad street, in front of the City Hall. Jos. Mayo, Mayor Richmond. Saturday afternoon, June 27, 1863. The regiments which assembled in the Square were notified to be in readiness at the same place yesterday morning at 10 o'clock, and assembled at the time appointed, with ranks very much increased. It was the general impression on the part of those who witnessed the parade that the city troops of Richmond were numerous enough, and well drilled enough, to defend the city without the aid of the very large body of regulars who are in and around
and without armament. Col. Dana has been assigned to the command of the defences of Philadelphia. Of the 950 horses taken out from Vermont in the cavalry regiment, eighteen months ago, only 108 remain in the regiment. Gov. Curtin, of Pennsylvania, is out in a proclamation, dated the 23rd, calling for 60,000 militia. Chief of Police McKenney, of Belfast, Me., was mortally shot on the 24th inst. by two deserters, who refused to be taken. A letter from Washington says Richmond was reinforced on the 19th inst. It adds that "20,000 of Bragg's men are doing garrison duty in Richmond." Henry Clay Dean, the Iowa orator, has been released from prison by the Government.--When arrested he was stript stark naked in the street, before a hooting mob, and his clothes searched. The 5th Massachusetts regiment, whose time expired at Newbern, N. C., has arrived at Fortress Monroe and volunteered for Dix's "On to Richmond." Gold was quoted in New York, on the 26th,
McClellan's defeat in New Orleans Mobile, July 9. --The New Orleans Delta says: We are in possession of Mobile papers of the 2nd instant, containing a series of telegrams from Richmond and other points. The substance of these dispatches is that McClellan has been defeated.--We reproduce these telegrams because versions of them are in the hands of speculators imposing upon the public; but we do not believe them. If they are true, all that can be gained by a repulse of the Union army is to prolong the struggle. The Picayune copies from the Delta, with this heading: "We have read the following note from General Butler:" "Editors Picayune--Gentlemen: There is in the city, and you have had in your office, an extra, which sets right all news from Richmond down to July 2d. Why desire to publish false intelligence, as is the reliable man's lies of June 30. Publish anything but the Richmond dispatches, and you may publish them if you will publish this note."
is invincible army, that those who are now waging war against the United States, are "rebels against the best interest of mankind, and that our National Constitution shall prevail, and that the Union, which can alone insure internal peace Union, which can alone insure internal peace and external security to each State, must and shall be preserved, cost what it may in time, treasure, and blood." (Cheers and applause.) The Confederate Losses. A letter to a Northern journal says that Richmond will be in McClellan's hands in a week. The Confederate loss was tremendous: The enemy have had their best regiments out to pieces. They have lost the flower of their troops. Their choleast were hurled upon our troops in the great effort to destroy us, and they were repulsed with horrid carnage. The fact that for the past five days they decline to meet, us in combat proves most disorganized they have become, and how terribly they have suffered. The Richmond papers acknowledge to
they were opened upon by the gunboats, and one hundred and fifty were killed and drowned. Our cavalry made a dash upon the force in charge of the battery and captured the whole six pieces, and killed a number of rebels. In the skirmish we lost six or seven killed. The rest of this force were repulsed and driven back." The following was received at Gen. Burnside's headquarters, in Cincinnati: Headquarters U. S. Forces, In the Field, Geiger's Creek, July 20, 9 P. M. Lieutenant Colonel Richmond, A. A. G: We chased Morgan and his command over fifty miles to-day. After heavy skirmishing for six or seven miles between the 45th Ohio, of Col. Wolford's brigade, which was in the advance, and the enemy, we succeeded in bringing the enemy to a stand about 5 o'clock this afternoon, when a fight ensued, which lasted an hour, when the rebels fled, taking refuge upon a very high bluff. I sent a flag of truce demanding an immediate surrender of Morgan and his command. The fla
. As it is, he has always been able to pit his army as a unit against us; and, with the consummate skill with which he has handled it, the wonder rather is that on the whole we have held our own so well than that we have not overrun Virginia, as was first anticipated. The first object of Lee's army is undoubtedly the defence of Richmond. But it does not necessarily follow that the first object of the Army of the Potomac should be the capture of Richmond. If Lee's army fails, so does Richmond; but Richmond may fall and leave Lee's army still as formidable as ever. The Confederacy can give up the one and yet be a great military power; but to loose the other is death inevitable and immediate. Too much importance has been attached to local conquests. These of course have their value, but a secondary value only. Just as far as they can serve as footholds from which the rebel armies can be more effectually assailed, just so far are they to be prized. They are to be estimated sol
A Southern Yankee Trick. --At a recent blockade sale in Wilmington a telegram from Richmond was read to the crowd by one of the interested, announcing a great rise in gold and exchange, and instantly the sharks in front of the seller were run up to 25 to 50 per cent. on their purchasers.
from the rebel Government. He formerly resided at Baltimore, Maryland. He intends remaining a few days in New York city. Ann Atwood expects to go to Richmond by the way of Fredericksburg, Virginia. She has a daughter about eight years of age. Williamson has a son in Stuart's rebel cavalry, holding a Captain's commission, and relatives in other rebel commands. A more shame-faced pair of rebels never moved in any sphere. They have been keeping up a continual correspondence with Richmond and other parts of the South during their stay here frequently boasting of the regularity of said communication being kept up in defiance of the United States Government. Williamson is about sixty five years of age, stout and broad, hair gray, wears no whiskers, but has a gray moustache; stoops and has a hobbling gait, and plausible in his manners. Ann Atwood is above the usual height for a woman, broad, foreign face, high cheek bones, diminutive nose, small eyes, dark, short hai
nfederates?" The Gazette must be sadly ignorant of "the situation," and of the capacities of the South when it treats as problematical the existence of the Confederacy for another year. We are stronger now than we were a year ago; glorious harvests; the currency improving; the tax bill bidding fair to yield an enormous revenue; our armies increasing every day in numbers and efficiency; our whole population, independent of the army, about to be organized into an embattled host. When therefore the Gazette speaks of Richmond as a caput mortum, it is as much out of its reckoning as the Spanish General who confidently predicted its capture by McClellan, and, even if it were taken, nothing but the brick and mortal it is built of would be lost to the Southern Confederacy. "Another year gained" may help the Confederacy through! If that is all that is necessary, we are safe enough. The Southern Confederacy will outlive the Army and Navy Gazette, and exist as long as Great Britain itself.
