Col. Revere, of tlie (seventh New Jersey
regiment, lias recently addressed a letter to
Ooveruor Ofjden. in which he point oat the
fully of forming new regimen to when the
old o greatly need filling np, lie ay. :
"With all due respect to the opinion of
others, I am in favour of immediate draft
ing from the militia, en mouse, and the fill
ing op of oar shattered regiments now in
the field, Be mooh reduced by the ravages of
war, in preference to raising new regimenta,
which cannot be prepared for the field in
a less period than six months.
''It would b; most unwise to send these
raw regiment, without drill or discipline,
even if they eau be recruited in time to en
able the armies now iu the field to mnitif
the offensive, to meet the rebel regiments of
trained and valiant troops, who may be
ranked Amoug the best soldiers in the world,
as all our army cau testify who have met
tlie.u in the recent great battles on the Pe
"The best composition of a regiment, in
"The "view of military men, is probably one
fourth of old soldiers, both by examplo and
precept. Thus constituted, the regiments of
the army of the l'otoiuno would be irre-lsti-ble,
and its force and power in war be far
superior to any force the rebels oau bring
into any field.
"The officers of that army have now been
educated in the best school the field of war
and any laok of them can be eamly sup
plied from the ranks of the volunteers, which
contain a plentiful supply of active, intelli
gent and ambitious young soldiers, inured
to the linrdships of campaigning, and im
bued in a great tnoasure with the spirit of
military institutions. Besides, we have the
traditions of the regiments already to xcite
the ambitiou and pride of the new recruit,
who would much rather belong to a regi
ment which inscribes "Williamsburg," "Fuir
Oaks," Malvern," etc., on its colors, tliHn to
anew one, entirely unknown to fame.
" 2'he superior udvnntaKea already acquired
by drill and discipline are too apparent to be
recommended, while the saving to the gov
ernmeut iu every way is something enor
mous, as one regiment of veterans tilled up
with recruits iu the proportion of one in
three or four of old soldiers, represents a
military power of as one to twi at the least
when compured with a force composed en
tirely, as our new regiments cannot fail lo
bo, of raw crlioers and Bohltere, entirely nn
inured to war, and who have not received
the baptism of firo.
"T e saving of the number of officer i
also to be taken into the account, unl. sh the
country is more plethoric of wealth than
would seem t be the case at present."
T io last is a point that does not seem to
get proper oousideratson. The regiinet ts
now in the Held have in uoiiera! a fair, if not
full complement of oflloers, who draw pay
whether they have mm to command or u t.
To fill up their command would be to make
nee of these experienced and valuable offi
cers ; but instead of that, it eeema to be pre
ferred to create a now army list of inexpe
rienced men, oostiug the government double
what it onghl, for half service. The 1 ation
bus a right to demand that no such waste of
means shallte permitted.
Col. Revere says that to prepare a new
army for the field will reuui e six months.

emit the armies now in the field is a work
which could be done in one mouth, with
proper effort. The 30,000 men already said
to be enlisted, and most of whom are, we
fear, waiting for new regiments to be oam
pleted, wonlo be of great and lasting value
if they could at onoe be sent down to Pope,
not as fresh and distrained regiments, but
in the shape of recruits to join his veterans
and be mixed with them. Thirty thousan I
men, hf althy and vigorous, in the bauds of
an enterprising general, might serve to turn
the tide of victory again iu our favor. But
if they are kept at home, if they enter the
field a mass of nndi-eiplned reoruiH with
owners as ignorant as themselves ; if they
must be painfully and tediously drilled for
months before they nan be taken into action
then the generals who wnut to push on (ho
war must do bo without counting ou the new
levii s, and the brave fellows who have already
borne the brunt of the contest must bear it
yet longer dissatisfied.
Every consideration of justice to those in
field, the encouragement of those about to
enter, speedy reinforcements of our armies,
economy in means as we 1 as time every
thing points to the necessity of using the
new levies to fill up the regiments now in
the field and yet, though time is preoious
aud the enemy presses, our htate authorities
do not seem to reulize the necessity of the
hour, but continue a mode of enlistment
which wastes both tune and money.

By this time the battle before Richmond
has been a fully discussed as the meagre
aAM, o,fj ha- nwa m;tV!y -'flVugnr pVwiJr
allow. The impression which this great mil
itary event has made ou English society iA
not lo be mistaken. If there were before
any who thought that the resistance of tluj
So till was likely to be overoome by the ex
pi lits of (ion, JcOlellau's army before
Richmond, they are now undeceived. It can
not be doubted that a battle of the highest
importance ha been fought, and thst the
Federal army has been thrown biiok a con
siderable distance several miles indeed
from it former pesiiion.
But if the Virgtuia campaign has emle.l iu
a manner which sh.iws that the Confederates
are able to carry on a long war, the fighting
at (,'harli-sloa shows that, even at isolated
points, they are prepared to receive an ene
my. Tne aiu'jiguity of the telegraph pre
pared us io believe that the battle before
Charleston e ded in a victory for the South.
The thing is uow made clear. A Federal
General, plainly ignorant of the enemy he
was to attack, aud the defenses he was likely
to meet, advanced with Some 1,200 men to
the attack of a battery and he seems to have
been as completely defeated as the British
were at New Orleans and perhaps union iu
the same manner.
The moral to be deduced from these ovent
is clear. 2'nere is probably at the pree!lt
moment, in Europe, but a single sooiety
where tho defenders of this hateful and
airocious war could muke themselves ennl.
2'he impnm 1 opinion of every civilized na
tion is being more and more strongly ex
pressed against the enterprise in whiun the
Federals are embarked. 2'he orators of the
Noitlieru States may inveigh ns much as
they please against the imerfereuco of En
gland, nud the mob may shout scorn of Eng
lish advice and detiaoo of English arms ; but
English opinion is, atter all, tho opinion of
the world, and we may hope that, iu spile of
articled indignation and highflowu elo
quence, the go d reuse which has uniformly

From t e Knoxvillo Register.
"Tliiscommwnity was inexpress
ibly shocked today by intelligence
of the murder of Gen. Win. Ii. Cas
well by some unknown liend, near
his residence some six miles east of
this city. The only particulars we
have of the affair is that he was
found about a half mile from his
own home with his throat out. His
servants report that they saw him
struggling with some one in the
road, but before they could reach .
him, lite was extinct and the mur
derer lied. Immediately upon tho
receipt of the intelligence here, a
party of our citizen, mounted
lioise and started out to scour the
country in search of the assasain.
The general was in the city yes
terday and interchanged greetings
with numerous friends.
Gen. U. was about 51 or 52 yeara
of age. He was one of the most
universally esteemed and respect
ed of our citizens. Perhaps no man
Uon as a public man ever enjoyed
more personal popularity. Affable
in his demeanor to everyone, kind
and generous and upright and just
in all his transactions, it is remark
able that he should have an enemy
so desperate a character as his slay
er must have been. The affair is
ua inexplicable as horrible.
Gen. Oasvtell was a distinguished
soldier, having served through the
Mexican campaign. He was ono
of the earliest in this city to em
brace the cause of the South at the
bieakingoutof the war. He was
appointed by Gov. Harris a Briga
dier in the Slate service, and com
manded the forces rendezvoused
here until they were turned over
to the Confederate Government
when he retired to private life.
1 iS. Passengers by the train
last night from above say the re
port at McMillans station was that
Gen, Caswell had been assassi
nated by a parly of men, who fired
upon him from the woods, and af
ter he had fallen from his horse,
rushed upon him and mangled him
with their knives. A company of
calvary has been setit out to search
for tho perpetrators.
