Bragg's army --The special correspondent of the Mobile Register and Advertiser, writing from Tullahoma, May 25th, says: The situation in Middle Tennessee continues unchanged. Bragg, with his large and well disciplined army continues to hold his lines from McMinnville, on the right, to Columbia, on the left, and even our cavalry is so listless and quiet that the clank of a sabre is seldom heard. The enemy makes no demonstrations, nor do we, and it is astonishing what few movements are made, and how title excitement is created where two such large bodies of embittered enemies confront each other.--A day's march upon either side would bring these armies together the strongly fortified position of either opponent. All interest seems turned to and wrapped in the remarkable campaign which is being carried on in Mississippi, and upon its results depend the movements of the armies in Middle Tennessee.
is, guilty of manslaughter. Thereupon the prisoner was remanded and the court adjourned. The Confederate Privateers. A letter from Rio Janeiro, of the 23d May, has reached New York: The Florida left Pernambuco May 12, and with her the late Federal brig Clarence, which she had taken. The latter has been armed with four guns and fifty men. This will be a valuable acquisition to our Navy, as she can always keep within the protection of the Florida. The Florida has destroyed nine vessels, some laden with flour from New York for the Brazils, previous to entering Pernambuco. Advices from Bathia, of the 29th May, report that the Alabama sailed hence May 21, and the Georgia, Com. Maury, which arrived at Bahia from the Clyde on the 13th May, left on the 22d. The Yankee man-of-war Mobican put into Bahia on the 25th May, and sailed on the 27th in search of rebel cruisers. She will never overtake them, and for the best of reasons, because she does not desire to do so.
ve making about 540,000 rounds, and a total of nearly one million rounds. The amount consumed, except when the enemy charged, was comparatively nothing, and the total number fired will not exceed 350,000, leaving a balance of 490,000. The amount of cape at the Ordnance Department was about 75,000 exclusive of those contained in the men's cap boxes, which very nearly corresponded with the cartridges. Added to these were the caps taken from the dead bodies of the enemy on the evening of the 25th May, which amounted to several thousand and each courier that arrived in from Johnston brought 20,000. The total amount of caps surrendered to the enemy was not under 200,000. There was a good deal of unfixed ammunition, and the magazines of the heavy batteries were well stocked. My information respecting the amount of ammunition was received from parties connected with the Ordnance Department, but whose, names I am compelled to with hold, unless with their permission I made further di
From Northern Virginia. Taylorsville, May 25. --On Monday evening Filz Lee's cavalry being pressed by the enemy's. Infantry near Anderson's Cross Roads, McGowan's brigade was sent to support the cavalry, when a considerable fight ensued. The enemy were held in check. Yesterday there was considerable skirmishing on our right, and slight skirmishing on our left. During the evening, Mahone, commanding Anderson's division, repelled an attack of the enemy on the left, and in turn charged them, capturing some prisoners. This morning there is some artillery firing, but it amounts to very little. Our troops are still in the best possible spirits. [second Dispatch.] Tatlorsville, May 25. --No. engagement to-day and very little skirmishing.

The relief committee here are pouring out everything that can be obtained for their sustenance, and call now to the people of Georgia, Alabama, and South Caroline, to aid and help them.

the railroad from Danville to Greensboro', N. C, on the 21st of May, the Postmaster General telegraphed to Mr Johnson, the President of the Columbia and Charlotte railroad, and to Mr Webb, the President of the North Carolina railroad, to meet him and Mr. Harvie, the President of the Piedmont railroad, at once, so as to agree to a cross and quick schedule for the mails, seven times a week, from Richmond to Columbia, S C. The Presidents of these three roads met the Postmaster General on the 25th May, and agreed on a schedule with close connections from Richmond to Columbia, S. C, for daily mail trains, with further understanding that they would run double daily mail trains if not prevented by the accessibly for military transportation. By this schedule the mails are to go from Richmond the Charlotte, N. C, in twenty-four hours, and the only reason why it was not put in operation at once was the fact that the Presidents of these roads found it impracticable to make the necessary arrang

From North Georgia. Top of Kansas Mountain, via Marietta, June 15. --There has been considerable cannonading and skirmishing on our right and centre to day. The enemy advanced his lines the previous night very near ours, and both lines are distinctly visible from this point. The weather is beautiful, and the roads are rapidly drying. Loring is now in command of Polk's corps. Lieut. Elisha P. Gaines, of Ky., was captured by our scouts this morning. He says the enemy lost 1,500 in Hooker's fight with Stewart, on the 25th of May, and that it was a useless sacrifice of life on the part of the enemy.
that force, assuredly Lincoln ought not to bear the blame. Neither is Grant to blame. The Yankee nation, and their newspapers, and their Congress, are to blame far more than Lincoln, or Grant, or Butler. One year ago Grant with 85,000 men, shut up Pemberton, who had already lost 9,000 men in battle against overwhelming odds, with a remnant of 18,000 in the town of Vicksburg. After having attempted to carry the works by storm, and having been repulsed with immense slaughter on the 25th of May, he was afraid to try it again. He drew lines of enormous strength around the city, the horns terminating on the river, where lay one of the most powerful fleets of modern times. There he lay, receiving reinforcements every day, for six weeks, until the garrison, numbering about one-fifth of his command, and seeing no hope of relief, surrendered. This was, really, a very small feat; but the Yankee nation magnified it into a very greet one. It was necessary to impose on foreign nations,
