Affairs at Corinth. The Mobile Advertiser, of May 28th, (the very day on which Halleck reports Corinth as evacuated,) has the following. The state of susper s and deep anxiety of the public mind at the present moment, to learn the condition of affairs at Corinth, leads us to give our speculations as to what will probably be the result of the course and policy of our Generals in command. From our knowledge of affairs at that point, we are led to believe that it was the policy of our Generals to have brought on a decisive battle with the enemy before he could have fort fled his positions and entrenched himself so as to cover a disastrous defeat. We know that he has been working with the pick and spade night and day for weeks, and it may be that the opportunity so eagerly sought for of making a successful attack upon him has passed. If this be so, to risk a battle under these circumstances would be productive of no final results, and only be attended with great slaugh

Maj. Gen Lovell
Maj. Gen Lovell and the fall of New Orleans. The subjoined communication is copied from the Charleston Mercury, of May 28th: The capture of New Orleans very naturally excited great feeling throughout the country, and the people and the newspapers immediately went to work to find a victim upon whose head to wreak vengeance. The of a public servant to meet the expectations of those for whom he labors, should not, in case of his failure to do everything with which he is charged, be the signal for his destruction in the public confidence, without it is made manifest that he has been wanting in the vigilance and energy demanded by the position to which he has been assigned. The felt of New Orleans was a great misfortune. No one knew better the vast importance of holding possession of that city and the lower Valley of the Mississippi than Gen. Lovell; and a fair, candid statement, founded upon personal observation, and upon the official evidence of what was done is submi
