Tnc Vienxa ArriiR. Our advices leave
it in doubt whether the enemy are not Mill
at in possession of their battery Vienna.
They fled at first, supposing that the train of
empty cart was full of troops. In flight, they
left their camp equipage, &c, and finding
they were not pursued, they returned for this,
and, as we incline to believe, resumed a posi
tion watching the road at that point The six
cannon in battery were protected by a pile of
cord wood, piled endwise, and so arranged as
to afford embrasures or the guns.
The Retreat mom Harper's Ferhy. We
have a variety of accounts in respect to the
retreat of Qen. Johuson's force from Harper's
Ferry. One account is, that this force has
gone to Martinsburg, which is neither verified
or probable. The account which seems to be
best supported, is, that the main body posted
itself at Charlestown, whence roads lead to
Winchester, aud to Lcesburg, the latter sub
stantially parallel to the Potomac, at from five
to eight miles distant.
Neglect or Troops bt iueir States.
Some of the regiments arriving here a month
ago hare not yet been provided by their States
with means to dischargo the bills for their sub
sistence incurred on their arrival here. The
two regiments in regard to which this complaint
is most decided, are from New York. We call
Gov. Morgan's attention to this matter, with
confidence it will be at once attended to.
Mt Quite a gathering was had at the Na
tional Hotel some evenings since of those
friendly to the Scottish regiment in the city,
with a view to provide means to cover the legs
of some of that regiment, who had left New
eYork without trowsers. Mr. Cameron was pres-
em aim maoe a speecn. vouiq noi mo isuics
prepare havelocks to meet the case?
sJSf H. B. M. steamer Gladiator, Hickley,
commander, from Halifax, May 31, via Cape
Henry, twenty-four hours, arrived at New York
-Tuesday morning for a supply of coal. She
mounts six guns, and has a crew of 192 men.
This is the steamer reported as cruising off the
mouth of the Chesapeake.
The Wheeling Contention. This body
has determined to elect, provisionally, a Gov
ernor and othtr Slate officers for Virginia, in
place uf those who have abdicated, by turning
traitors.
It has also devolved the legislative powers
upon such of the State Senators and Repre
sentatives elected on the 23d of May, as will
swear allegiance to the United States.
t&" The following is General Cameron's re
ply to a recommendation of the Engineer De
partment, for the admission, free of duty, of two
hundred and fifty tons of gas coking coal and
seventy three tons of cannel coal imported for
the use of the Military Academy :
" The Secretary of Wur cauuot countenance
the importation of coal by approving of this
recommendation. A better article ot coal ol
all kinds can be secured in this country than
can be brought from Europe ; and it is deemed
due to the great industrial interests of the couu-
try that the Uovernmeut should loster and en
courage its own resources instead of those of
foreign countries. Simon Caueron,
" Secretary of War.
"June 18, 1861."
Haktiav Affairs. Seventy five colored em
igrants to Hayti, organized under the auspices
of Mr. Redpatb, left Boston on Saturday in two
vessels, with tho materials for the erection of
thirty cottages, being the seventh colony tent
out by him during the present year. The emi
gration to Uayti is thus not wholly broken up,
by the Spanish annexation of Dominica, with
its threatening coiuequeuces to the peace of the
whole island. If that event had not occurred,
the emigration would have been very large.
The Haylian agent here siys it would hare
amounted to five hundred from this city alone.
There would still have remained tho uncertain
ty whether the success ol those emigrants in
their new home would have been such as to have
caused a continuous and sustained emigration
afterwards. That was uncertain, because it
had not been tried, but the appearances were
flattering, and it is deeply to be regretted that
the experiment, on a large scale, has been frus
trated by the ambitious enterprise ol Spain.
DISAFFECTION IN TUK SoCTIIERN ARWY.
A correspondent of the New York Express,
wriliug from this city, June 17, says:
"The officers of the Southern army have
not received one cent of pay up to tho present
time, aud are compelled to find themselves iu
everything.
"Gen. Lee has oho written letters, appa
rentlf regretting the steps taken by bim. He
says :
'"I hate acted under misapprehension. II
you resign your present position in the Fede
ral army you need not speak to mo.' "
The same paper mentions a rumor to tbe
effect of
" A serious difference between Beauregard
and Lee, und it is said thut Jeff. Davis has
sided with the former. Benuregard has su
perseded Lee as chief commander of the ene
my, and there probubly the shoo pinches."
JlEQIUENTS ON TUB WaY TO WaSIIINOTOV
Aniobj the regiments now on their way to this
city, un'i which will probably ariive to day or
to-morrow, .are tho tenth iluiuo regiment, the
eighteenth Nw York (Albany) regiment, the
fourteenth New York (Oneida) regiment, the
twenty-ninth New York (city) regiment, second

THE WAR AND SLAVERY.
Mr. John Btll says, in his recent Kuoxville
speech :
" It is true that the itivadiug general issue
proclamations that they will protect private
property) but what are these proclamations
worth when jou look ut the composition of heir
troops. The leaders are ambitious politicians,
And Mm mMfi dra uesneraie iauaucs iub wu
servative people stay at home. TIio leaders
IC UllilUlU tVJ LV1IIIUI U lui") ..km ....... r
proclamations amount to nothing. The very
presence of suchau army in any Southern
State, demoralises the slaves they ure ruinous
and out to be resisted and driven back."
But as it it not certain that these armies can
be "drivin back," the seceded States mnstsoon
begin to ask themselves whether it was quite
prudent, so far as slavery is concerned, to draw
down upon themselves these "invading gtn-
erah." Slavery is a very "peculiar" institu
tion ; slaves are a very "delicate" article of
property. Their owners were in the peaceful
and quiet enjoyment of them when they rushed
into this rebellion; but they will Come out of
it without a single slave, unlets they avert that
result by a timely submission;
Not only is it Una, as Mr. Bell observes, that
t"ie mere "presence" of an invading army "de
moralizes the slaves," but it is the unalterable
determination of the nation so to conduct
what he is pleased to call the "invasion" as
will extinguish slavery. The traitors will not
be allowed to pursue their slaves within the
lines of the armies of the Republic, and this
puts an end to slavery as those armies advance.
The desire of slaves to recover their freedom
is unconquerable, and whenever they get a
chance to run away, they never fail to improve
it. Everybody knows what is going on to-day
in Eastern Virginia, and it is easy to anticipate
what will happen when "lino" are established
iu the vicinity of Charleston and New Orleans,
within which negroes can take refuge. If slave
holding traitors dislike this entertainment, let
them give up their treason and lay down their
arms. They may depend upon.it, that if they
postpone their submission uutil this war sweeps
down to the Gulf, they will cease to be slave
holders. It is utterly impossible that slavery should
servive upon the theatre of actual collision. It
is not merely that slaves get the opportunity to
run away from their musters, but masters run
away fiom their slaves, as is happening eve,ry
jBy in j ot our i;ueg ;n Eastern Virgiuia.
The who)e 8Tgtem thara j, tumbVine into ruin,
Masters cannot enforce their authority, and
they abandon slaves who can earn nothing and
who cannot be sold.
How far this thing may go, depends upon
the obstinacy of the traitors; bat as to Vir
ginia, it is certain that elaverytis receiving its
death-blow. The running away of the negroes
to the North, and the transportation of them to
the South by flying owners, make a double
drain, which will soon reduce tbe black popu
lation to a low figure. For every black man
who leaves, ten white ones will come in. These
secccsion traitors have, in fact, accomplished
more for Virginia in the direction of emanci
pation in six months, than would have been ac
complished by the ordinary course of events in
fifty years. That is a philanthropic result
which they probably did not intend ; but tbey
are achieving it, and we are willing that they
should have the credit and satisfaction of it.
Tho London Times of a late dale, in an
article upon cotton, has these sentences:
" But who shall say what changes will not
take place in the course of the next fewy ears 1
Here we have India reconquered, "the Chinese
Empire in the process of dissolution, the Old
World sick at heart, and now the United States
at the end of their brief history."
By those who have watched the course on
many questions of the London Times which
is but a more solemn sort of New York Herald,
both able prints (he expression which closes
tho above extract will be treasured on the
humorous side of memory's storehouse.
They will recall it when, some twelvemonth
hence, our London contemporary will be found
launching forth magnificent periods of import
and accuracy like the following:
" It was clear to us from the first that such
would be the fate of the misguided but daring
faction who sought, through their pretended
control ot the staples of European consump
tion, to wrest from its inevitable progress to
renown tbe great confederation ol states which
iu the Western World is to perpetuate to re
mote aces tbo doctrines, the language, and
the morals of the English race whence they
sprang. With all tbe fault of this ambitious
nation, as Englishmen we are constrained to
love them and be proud of them. We cannot
but fiel that the free blood of England flows in
their veius. From tbe outset we instinctively
knew that free England would never suffer tbe
Republic of free America, whatever its way
ward faults, to go down in darkness. In the
hour she felt the possibility oftucha result,
tho mysterious ties of maternity, that throb
before birth and do not perish with death, would
stir her whole nature to the rescue, and she
whose
' Home ti on tbe Kpountalu wave,
Vi hoM march Is on the deep,'
would forget that tho Atlantic lay between thero,
as tbe roused her resistless power to the rescue,
She would move, in her might, to the defence
of liberty, England's liberty as well as Ameri
ca's, threatened by a slarebolding oligarchy
tn the New World." No; England is a nation
ever alive to the iustincts of her history. Free
dom's battle it hers, wherever fought. Eng
land's people are a debt-paying people. She
sees iu the defeat and well deserved death of
Jefferson Davis but a righteous retribution.
She has not forgotten the day, years ago, when,
as President of Georgia, ho advocated the re
pudiatiou of tbe obligations of that State in
curred in tha building of her canals und itbe
founding of her Buui bank, flinging, from the
steps ot his capital at Columbus, defiauce in
tbe face of Cuglith bond holders who came
there to ask the repayment of tbe very ruuuey
which built tbe marble structure from which he
spoke. England could never permit the down
fall or dismemberment ot lb. American Union.
Wo behold to-day, iu the latest udvie,8 from
New York, the results which we predict! d morp

barometer of national and commercial stability,

FROM THE SOUTH.
From Southern papers received by the last
man, we maxe tne louowing extracts :
CIHJPS. J , . 'J
Never hiuewe'seeu finer wheat and oat crops
than this year. We made a flying trip a few
dayttince, through the countfes of Jasper, New
ton, Nothoba, and Lauderdale, aud everywhere
we were greeted with the pleasant tight of fine
crops. 1 he farmert reported the wheat crop,
which wat just being harvested, as the best they
had ever had, aud reported more land sown
down than ever. Tho oats were equally as fine ;
so with rye and barley. The corn looked splen
did, aud cotton tolerable. Breadstuffs must
be cbeap, with such immense crops or grain in
all sections. Enterprise Xeics.
The crops never were finer at this season of
tbe year. Tbo wheat crop is being harvested,
and is probably the best that has. ever been
raised in the country. Vegetables, abound in
vast abundance enough and to spare. Tish.

We are prepared to say, that from every por
tiou of the county we have received the most
tlatteriug accounts of the conditiou of the grow
ing crops. Corn it looking remarkably well

Atlanta (Qa.) Confederacy.
TROOFS.
We learn that two of the five Mississippi reg
iments in camp at Corinth were ordered by the
conimamier-io-cbiet to Virginia, and that upon
deciding by lot which should go, it fell to the
seventeenth and eighteenth regiments, com-
manaea uv lioioncis ceatberston and iiurt. re
spectively. Theseregimenlshave already left for
their destination. The others the fourteenth,
Colonel Baldwin; the fifteenth, Colonel Statham;
and the sixteenth, Colonel Posey will remain
at Corinth awaiting further orders. The Yazoo,
Madison, Hinds, Holmes, and Rankin compa
nies constitute the eighteenth regiment.
We are informed that there are about 7,000
troops still remaining at Corinth. Jackson E.
Barksdale editor) ifississippian, June 11.
We observe that the Messrs. Cobb, of Geor
gia, in an address to their constituents, con
gratulate them upon tbe assumed fact that
Georgia it offering to the Government " the
largest number of roluuteers of any of the orig
inal seven arid she has now the greatest num
ber inthejitld." This is a great mistake. Mis
sissippi has three more regiments in the field
than Georgia, with but little more than half tho
white population. Idem.
Illinois Volunteers in the Southern jinny,
We have authentic information that a company
of Southern llliuoisiaus have reported them
selves at Union City for duty in tbe Southern
army. Tbey ran the gauntlet of the Lincoln
pickets and spies, aud reached our lines iu a
nearly destitute condition, after encountering
many hardships aud "hairbreadth 'scapes."
These noble and gallant spirits were coidially
welcomed to the hospitalities of our camp, and
their wants were liberally supplied, tho ladies
especially contributing to their comfort. They
are actively drilling for service, and are enlUted
" for the war." Tbey report that, ip many coun
ties iu Southern Illinois, if the popular senti
ment were permitted to have utterance, three
fourths of the people would vote to go with the
South, where all their sympathies are. The
Lincoln train-bands at L'airp ere composed
principally of foreign mercenaries and the scum
and sweepings of Northern cities.
Louisiana 2oops The right wing of the
sixth regiment Louisiana volunteers passed
through Jackson, Mississippi, Juue 9, en route
for the seat of war, having orders to report to
tbe Secretary of War. The field officers are
Louis Lay, lieutanant colonel commanding; S.
L. James, major N. Hart Jackson, serceaut
I major and acting adjutant; G. U. Carrauine,
acting surgeun. The left wing, with (j'olonel I.
G. Seymour aud staff, followed two days alter.
MUNITIONS.
Breech-loading Cannon. We are informed
that it is the intention of Mr. Stevens, of the
Jackson Foundry, to cast und fit up a six
peunder cannon immediately, of the most ap
proved breech-loading pattern.
Should this enterprising gentbniat) he suc
cessful in his attempt ut the manufacture of tliij
gun, ha will doubtless be overrun with orders

June 11.
A Liberal Offer. Messrs. Hand 4 Co , of

AFFAIRS AT RICHMOND.'
Parties who baVe been in Richmond, Va.,
for some six or eight days past on business, and
left there on Monday moruing, arriving in Bal
timore the same eveniug, represent military
movemeuts in that region of Virginia as on a
gigantic and. formidable scale.
From the best sources of information, it was
evident there could not be less than B0,000
Confederatetroops in and around the imme
diate vicinity of.Richmond, all well armed and
thoroughly drilled.
The place is fortified In the strongest man
ner on each side and at every point likely to
be approached by the enemy. More troops
from States further Sonth were offering than
could be accepted. The New Orleans Zouave
regimeut.Js laid to be incomparable and terri
ble in appearance.
Butope jeeling rnns through tho entire army,
animating equally civilian, and soldier, inclu
ding men, woineu, and children, and that was
to strike, at the hazard of, life," fortune, honor,
everything, for the defence of their homes and
what they consider to be their inalienable
rights. The troops are represented as being in
good spirits, with plenty ty eat, drink, and
wear. ,
Conflicts with' tho Government forces were
expected dtuJy. It was supposed in Richmond
that. engagements would take place very soon
neaYLeeaburg, Williamspbrt, aud other places
where the Federal troops from the. West were
preparing to penetrate. Xarge forces of tbe
Confederates had gone Out iu that direction.
The citizens of Richmond, with few exceptions,
remain in the city.
it is said tbe soldiers are1anxions to meet
their foe, and think only of victbry, at whatever
sacrifice. As with'thetGoveramentat Wash
ington, great secrecy is observed with refer
ence to the movemeuts of troops, military de
signs, &c. Baltimore Sun. 1
A Seriocs Gharoe. In John Bell's Knox
villa speech of , June C, the followingpastage
is fouud : 3V,,.
"James Buchanan, when South Carolina
went out, could have enforced the laws, but
when Lincoln came in, and six or seven States
were oat, it could not bo done. The moment
the traitor, James Buchanan, permitted South
Carolina to go, be had betrayed the Union.
But the South was entitled to her share of Ihe
arms bought with the common fuud, and there
were persona iu Buchanan's Cabinet who were
having the arms moved South with his conni
vance, and, in consideration of that service, ha
could forgive even James Buchanan."
