number of prisoners were brought over last evening and assigned quarters in the Libby. Colonel Thompson B. Lamar, of Florida, who was wounded on the 20th ultimo on the Weldon railroad, died in Dinwiddie county on Tuesday last. He was a brave and gallant officer. From Georgia. We have news of fighting near Atlanta, but the accounts thus far received are confused and unsatisfactory. It is stated that on Wednesday last the enemy's entrenchments were attacked and taken by Generals Stephen D. Lee and Patrick Cleburne, with Hardee's corps; but the enemy having received heavy reinforcements, no decisive advantage was gained by our troops. We are not informed whether this attack was made upon the enemy's right, on the West Point railroad, or on his left, on the Sandtown road. The Yankees, in their change of position on the 26th ultimo, abandoned the Georgia railroad and swung around until their right rested on the West Point railroad, south of Atlanta, with the view of in
Meredith's Court. --Judge Meredith delivered his opinion yesterday in the habeas corpus case of Dr. A. E. Petticoats, testing the right of the County Justices to make him testify with regard to a duel recently fought by Messrs. John M. Daniel and E. C. Elmore. Taking the ground that neither the statutes of the Legislature nor the Constitution and Bill of Rights of Virginia ever intended that a witness should testify against himself in a matter in which he was particept criminis, the Judge decided that Dr. Peticoles could not be compelled to answer any questions which be thought might criminate himself; and therefore he reversed the decision of Justices Riddick and Lee committing the Doctor to jail for contempt of court in refusing to answer certain questions propounded to him by Mr. John B. Young, the county prosecutor. At the conclusion of Judge Meredith's remarks, Mr. Young gave notice that he should procure a writ of error and take the matter before the Court of Appeals.
The Chicago nominations are McClellan and Pendleton. The net was thrown so as to catch fish from all sides. McClellan is understood to be a War Democrat, while Pendleton is strongly for Peace. To us, of the Southern Confederacy, it matters very little who will be the President of Yankeedom. If our armies should be victorious, and continue to be so, the current will run so strongly in favor of peace that no man will be able to withstand it. On the other hand, should our armies be defeated, peace, for the present, will become impossible. The roar for blood will become as loud and as angry as ever. It all depends upon Lee and Hood.
Runaway.--five Hundred Dollars reward. --Ran away from the subscriber, about the 1st of August, my man Kinchin — calls himself Herbert. He is black; good appearance; quick in action; about five feet nine inches high, and twenty-two to twenty-five years old; was purchased in Richmond in July last of Mr. C. E. Morbin, who resides near Jude's Ferry, in Powhatan county. I will pay the above reward if he is delivered to Lee & Bowman, Richmond, Virginia, or confined in jail so I get him. G. A. White, Lexington, Virginia. au 24--12t*
o the army to confer with our generals. The end must be the defeat of our enemy. It has been said that I had abandoned Georgia to her fate. Shame upon such a falsehood. Where could the author have been when Walker, when Polk, and when General Stephen D. Lee were sent to her assistance? --Miserable man. The man who uttered this was a scoundrel. He was not a man to save our country. If I knew that a general did not possess the right qualities to command, would I not be wrong if he was nosent to drive them back. This he not only successfully did, but, crossing the Potomac, came well nigh capturing Washington itself, and forced Grant to send two corps of his army to protect it. This the enemy denominated a raid. If so, Sherman's march into Georgia is a raid. What would prevent them now, if Early was withdrawn, penetrating down the Valley and putting a complete cordon of men around Richmond? I counselled with that great and grave soldier, General Lee, upon all these points.
ocated at the mansion of Dr. Stout, of Corinth, with Stewart's corps, consisting of about 10,000 men, there and thereabouts. I have reason to believe that just the same state of things exists to-day in that quarter of the Confederacy. Most of S. D. Lee's corps at that time was at Jackson, the terminus of the railroad. Frank Cheatham's corps was at Florence, where also was Hood, the general commanding in the field. The following changes have taken place, it is believed: That Stephen D. Lee Stephen D. Lee has removed his entire corps from Jackson to South Florence, and that Frank Cheatham has crossed the river with his corps, and made headquarters at Waynesboro', a small town situated on or near Greene's creek, a branch of Duck river, and about half way between Columbia, Tennessee, and Florence, Alabama. Forrest is in command of all the cavalry, which is strong and in good trim, and holds undisputed possession of the entire country within a radius of thirty miles of Florence. From Sherman —
ry as ours to supply our armies and our people, if those at home will devote their whole energies to the task. A vast portion of our land, once employed in the production of cotton, tobacco and other exports, is now devoted almost exclusively to the raising of breads. stuffs, and, notwithstanding the devastation of raids, there will be more than enough, if the cultivators of the soil are diligent and Heaven blesses their labors, to feed themselves and half a dozen such armies as that of General Lee. No man should be detained from cultivation by the possibility of raids any more than by the possibility of rust and chinch bugs. It is the duty of the farmer, in the one case as in the other, to sow his seed and trust to God to give the increase. Let those who are exempt from the peril and privation of battle struggle to support those who are exposed to both. Whilst the soldiers are fighting against the bayonets of the enemy, let the farmers fight against the starvation tactics, whic
The Hampton Legion. --This superb command has given to the Confederacy seven generals. Hampton, its originator and colonel, is now a lieutenant-general. Stephen D. Lee, formerly a captain of its artillery, is also a lieutenant general. Butler, a captain, is now a major-general. The lamented Pettigrew, first a private in the Washington infantry, fell at the head of his North Carolina brigade.--Gary, a captain of infantry, is brigadier of cavalry, in command around Richmond. Connor, once a captain, is also a brigadier, minus a leg, and Logan, who started as a lieutenant, has followed the honorable career of his comrades, and received his stars and wreath.--Columbia Carolinian.
