ss when the time for movement comes" Gov. Curtin, of Pennsylvania, has visited all the Pennsylvania troops, and testifies in like manner. A Stafford Court House correspondent, of March 25th, says 40 rebels, disguised as civilians, were discovered yesterday hovering near our lines, and were captured. They were nearly all armed with revolvers, but it is not known whether they were regular Confederate soldiers. A dispatch from Chattanooga, March 23d, says: Morgan had a fight at Auburn, Cancan county, Tenn., Friday, with an overwhelming force of the enemy. He fought gallantly, and killed and wounded a number of the enemy, but was at last forced to retire. It is reported that Lincoln will visit New York shortly. The Herald promises him great enjoyment. The Herald has obtained a copy of the Confederate Navy Register and publishes it in full, with a long article on "the Rebel Navy in Buckram."It asks "where are the ships? Echo answers where?"

cavalry near Harper's Ferry. Morgan crossed the Muskingum river, 18 miles below Zanesville, Ohio, on Thursday morning last, with 1,000 men and three pieces of artillery. On the afternoon of that day he was in Guernsey county, near the Central Ohio Railroad, making eastward for the Ohio river. The citizens of Zanesville turned out to catch him, but he caught them and took 25 prisoners, including a Col. Chandler. The Abolitionists are turning the draft to political account. In Auburn, N. Y., the drafted men paraded on the 23d with flags and music. They were addressed by "distinguished politicians," and cheered for "The Union--Old Abe — The Draft — Our Recent Victories, &c." Of course the $300 exemptions of these cheerful decoy ducks are paid by the Republican Union Leagues. In Maryland, on the same day, the scene was not so pleasant. In Harford Co. the barn of the enrolling officer was burned and his residence perforated with bullets. In Harrisburg, Pa., where the men w
e slabs at the head of the graves indicated. It is the prevalent opinion, founded on good au- thority, that the enemy has fallen back behind the Rappahannock. All our informants state that Lee's and Stuart's forces numbered over seventy thousand strong. With this force it sounds strange to have them falling back. It is said that a want of supplies is the cause; but when they get within reach of transportation they will make a stand. It is rumored that they are defending the ford at Auburn, and will make a stand. I do not credit this. Anderson moved along that way for Warrenton with about thirty thousand men, falling back; yet I think we will have no fight there. I am now within five miles of it, and if there was to be a fight I should hear from our outposts. The general opinion is that the rebels are all of a day in advance, but leave sufficient force to prevent rapid movements forward. There is no probability of a battle. Proclamation from Lincoln — he wants 30
lets, but one has never made the slightest impression of his skin yet. He is one of the "bravest of the brave," and is a terror to the enemy. Defeating the enemy at Warrenton Springs, Gen. S., dashed off to Warrenton and took the road leading to Auburn, his object being to make a reconnaissance. On his arrival at this point he discovered that he was cut off from all communication with Gen. R. E. Lee, a corps of the enemy had moved up from Rappahannock bridge on the Auburn road, placing itself Auburn road, placing itself between Gen. Lee and himself.-- Gen. S. succeeded in sending some of his couriers through the enemy's lines, thereby enabling him to apprise. Gen. Lee of his position and what was transpiring around him. At early dawn the next morning, the 14th instant, Gen. Ewell moved forward with his command and attacked this corps and soon repulsed it. Gen Stuart also had a pretty sharp fight with the enemy. Gen. Gorden, with great bravery, led his old regiment, the 1st N. C., and captured a whole regiment
oing this, their trains being extremely long. We passed some miles to the right, crossing Cedar Run at a place named Auburn, five miles dureast of Warrenton. Gen. Lee forms a plan. At Warrenton Gen. Lee formed the bold design of sending (Ewell's) should fall upon our flank and rear. It was on Wednesday morning, when our whole army passed Cedar Run at Auburn, Gen. Warren's corps (Second) bringing up the rear. To this commander was assigned the duty of covering the trains of thsion was now an extremely critical one Ewell had begun pressing severely on our rear and already on Wednesday morning, at Auburn the rear guard became engaged with a portion of his force. A double necessity was upon Gen. Meade; first, he must move wday, the 19th, the forward movement was begun, the army crossing Bull Run on pontoons. The 2d corps took the road toward Auburn, the 6th toward Warrenton, the 3d toward Catlett's, the 1st and 5th toward New Baltimore. Tuesday, 20th, found the army

he following day, and some skirmishing occurred at Buckland. General Stuart, with Hampton's division, retired slowly towards Warrenton, in order to draw the enemy in that direction, thus exposing his flank and rear to General Lee, who moved from Auburn and attacked him near Buckland. As soon as General Stuart heard the sound of Lee's guns he turned upon the enemy, who, after a stubborn resistance broke and fled in confusion, pursued by General Stuart nearly to Haymarket, and by General Lee to of the enemy at this point yesterday, in accordance with the suggestions of Major-General Lee, I retired with Hampton's division slowly before the enemy, until within two miles and a half of Warrenton, in order that Major-General Lee, coming from Auburn, might have an opportunity to attack the enemy in flank and rear. The plan proved successful. The enemy followed slowly and cautiously after Hampton's division, when, on hearing Major-General Lee's guns on their flank, I pressed upon them vigor
as he had observed that some persons had lately injured themselves very much by plain speaking." Seward also made a speech, in which, the following related to his Auburn promise about the draft: Fellow-citizens: In a speech I made at Auburn, I said there should be no draft, because the army is being reinforced by five to ten Auburn, I said there should be no draft, because the army is being reinforced by five to ten thousand volunteers per day. The people of Auburn understood me, and cleared the district of their draft by volunteering. Patriotic men in Philadelphia write me that there they understood me to say there will be no draft, and therefore they stop volunteering.

Patriotic men in Philadelphia write me that there they understood me to say there will be no draft, and therefore they stop volunteering. I avail myself, therefore, of this occasion to correct their mistake by saying, that as grace can only show itself by works, so the draft will surely come if we do not volunteer and, so prevent it. I hope that point is settle now. It appears that the draft in New York city will now take place, Seward notwithstanding. Says the Herald: "A draft has been ordered to take place on Monday, Sep
ooga on business relating to military-movements. Stocum commands the Twentieth corps and the city of Atlanta. Howard is living in a wall-tent at Eastpoint, and Scholfield is rum at Decatur. A speech from Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln was serenaded by Marylanders Wednesday night in honor of that State now being " free." In the course of his speech he said something about himself and the Presidency. Here it is: Something said by the Secretary of State in his recent speech at Auburn has been construed by some into a threat that, if I shall be beaten at the election, I will between then and the end of my constitutional term do what I may be able to ruin the Government. Other regard the fact that the Chicago Convention adjourned not sine die, but to meet again if called to do so by a particular individual, as the intimation of a purpose that if the nominee shall be elected he will at once seize control of the Government. I hope the good people will permit themselves to
dly is our only safety. To use the language of a celebrated perpetrator of bulls in the Irish Parliament, the only way to avoid this danger is to meet it plumply, and to grapple with it as a monster that would take your life. Daniel Webster, when pressed to the wall on a question of politics said, "I take no step backwards." And so, in this contest, there exists no true Southern man or woman who would not echo back, in the face of the tyrant, "I take no step backwards." Seward, in his Auburn speech, announced the Yankee idea of this war. It was that the preservation of the Union was essential to the life of the nation. The highest incentive that crafty statesman held out to his money-loving hearers, whose nation's life was drawn from Southern productions, was this. But, sir, to a Southern heart there is an aspiration higher and nobler than this. Would that I had the voice and eloquence to invoke this sentiment in every city and hamlet and cottage of the South: It is that the
