The Polynrsnin editor says Mr. !?. b'.ed the

matter to charge your neighbor with killing a
man, or with doing what caused his death.
Here, in this case, a man comes forward and
voluntarily swears thus of bis neighbor, and
when the dvi is tried, lo, there is no proot of it.
Is that perjury ? Perhaja not. Supt-osing Mr.
Smith chw to turn, and enter a charge of jer
jury against the party thus swearing? Or a suit
for slander. He has a right to do cither, and
were the case reversed, a suit would, perhaps, have
been entered, and we might have had a perjury
or slander case, to report. Uut such is not Mr.

are, if smitten on one cheek, to turn the other :
Do not misunderstand us. VTc do not sus

We wnJomn him, for there is no god reason,
in our minds, why it should be resorted to by
him in any case whatever, when we have here
the Queen's Hospital, supported at heavy ex
panse, and a number of physician", more or Iets
skilful, always ready to tend the sick. If they
will not resort to these, but especially to the
Hospital, then let them die. If this suit leads
to the discontinuance of this practice by the

Ilattle nt Corinth, MUs.
A severe battle was fought on the 31 and -It b of
October, at Corinth, Miss , resulting in a decisive
victory for the Union forces. As usual, the rebels
outnumbered their opponents The forces of Koe
crans were attacked by the combined forces of Price,
Van Dorn and Lovell, and the assault was preyed
with desperate determination, with a view of crush
ing K-isecrans, before the arrival of the divisions of
Hurlbut and Ord. Uut they were met with equal
resolution and superior generalship, and after a
bloody struggle, compelh il to retieat, having their
dead, wounded and many prisoners. The Union loss
is also heavy. Iljsecrans was promptly in pursuit,
and, at the date cf the latest advices from that
quarter, the enemy Hpjeired to be caught between
the fork of the Haichie river. The victory achieved
by Kosecrana at Corinth and Ilatchie river is con
firmed. The rebels theme!es admit that they were
defeated. The piercing of the centre, was pe-mitted
on the first d ly by R '.-ecrans for the purpo eof draw
ing en the rebels. Into the trap they fell, an 1 a
who!e brigade ef them was captured. It is refresh
ing to hear of stratagem in a battle on our sile. It
has not t-een reported to very trtquently by our Gen

capture by main strength, an 1 in some cases, stupi I

alized. Oct. 11. The latest reports from Corinth say that
rur loss reached -00 killed and oo0 wounded. We
have buried nearly 2.0J0 rebels, and have one thous
anltf their wounded. 'H-e genera! character cf
the wounds rtceive.d by our meu is -light, the enemy
fightitg mainly with muskets, while the relels

Oct. 12. A Corinth despatch says that Grant re
called Kosecrans from the pursuit of the euemy on
the 'Jib. He reports the enemy desperate aud de
moralized, incapable of dohig further mischief.

The most stirring inciient of the news is the rai 1
i cf Stuart and his cavalry (about COJ in number)
there to Chatubersburg. At this point he supplied
himself with wh-ttever he stood in need, in the way
tf horses and clcthing. Before leaving he destroyed
the machine shops and briJges cf the Cumberland
Itiilroad and a large amount of Government pro
perty, Kstirnated in all at S'43,OO0. From Chain
berburg he proceeded to Gettysburg, and at that
place turned short into .Maryland. His object was
to mote on Frederick, aud destroy the immense
amount tf Guvernuunt stores accumulated there.
Fortunately the place was well defended, aud Mu.irt
was obliged to ti-rn his horses heads eistwird. He
then made for Newmarket, and there destroyed the
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad track. From thence
he galloped by the Lilertytowu road to the Potomac,
and crossed that i iver near the mouth of the Mono
caoy. carrying with him from Mercersburg the May
er nod Common Council. It is reported that he
made his last ninety miles in twenty four hours.
Gen. Plt-asauton, who was dispatched to capture him
maJe seveuty-four miles in the same time, but he
arrived on the banks of the Pole ma.' just in time to
find that Stuart had safely crossed. Ia ths wild
aid Stunt has thrown all his previous adventures
in the olm Je. Had not the precaution been taken to
defend Frederick, he might have done a great deal
of damage. The object of the raid is the only thing
with which we have now to deal. It was probably
two-fold. First, to distract McCiellan's attention,
and second, to d.stroy the stores accumulated iu
New York, October 11. New Orleans papers of
the 1st have been received. The city continues in
remarkably good health.
It is stated that Gen. Butler has ample forces to
resist ao attack of 100,000 rebels.
Wheeling, Va , October 10. Maj.-Gen. Cox and
Staff arrived yesterday from Washington. He goes
to the Kanawha Valley to tuke the chief command of
1 the Federal forces. Active operations have been
! commenced against the rebels. They now have pos
session of the salt works, and are making a good
i thing out of them. They have considerable force iu
' that quarter.
Baltimore, October 13. The principal object of
the rebel raid into Pennsylvania was to get horses
They took back nearly 1,000, secured in Penn
The Time's Washington special dispatch says that
the prevailing rumor is that the rebels are moving
in force through Thronton's Gap and the Blue liidpe
to i each the Orange and Alexandria road. This is
considered as a proof that the raid into Pennsylvania
is a feint to cover their retreat and obtain supplio
and distract McCiellan, while they fall back ou Si gel.
Pensicola advices state that a portion of the mor
tar fleet had left for Galveston, and the remainder,
with the gunboats, were to leave immediately. It is
thought here that this is a ruse and that Mobile is
the domination of the fleet.
The Richmond Examiner of thcCth has a dispatch
dated Savannah, Georgia, October 4th , which says :
The Federals attacked our batteries on St. Johu'a
Inland on the 1st. and after an hour's engagement
were repuNed. The Federals subsequently landed
at Greenville Point in force, and marched a mile to
the rear of the batteries, where a fijitht began at ten
o'clock in the morning. No particulars received.
The Richmond Whi of Oct. 1, discussing the
Emancipation proclamation, says, it is ordainine a
servile insurrection in the Confederate States : It
i a dash of the pen to destroy sj4.OX10.000 of our
property, and is a bid for slaves to risa in insurrec
tion, with the Bsmurance that tlie whole military and
naval power of the United States will aid it. It
speaks of the cruelty of the administration, and says
that Butler is a saint compired to his master. "Our
military operations," says the Ifhig, " henceforth
will assume a very grave character. We find that
the new programme will necessarily destroy all
chauces of terms between us and the United States.
The next campaign will bo a tremendous one, both
f..r magnitude and character in its operations. Let
our authorities prepare the whole strength of our
people for a tremendous shock. The enemy is mak
ing great preparations, as well as issuing fiendish
proclamations. We must respond with equal energy.
If we don't we are lost."

British waters by the burning of the Harvey Birch.
But lt that pass. We hope to hear of the dispatch
of a vessel of war or two soon, to etfect the capture of
the pirate. If he tarries only a little longer at the
Azores, the people of some of the Atlantic cities will
have :he pleasure of seeing him in irons before many

Enghm and Canada. The feeling in England
towards Canada, as manifested in the speeches in
Parliament, in the Times, and in the tone of leading
men, is one of indifference and almost of unfriendli
ness. The cost of keepiing up the military establish
ment, the little commercial aJ vantages from the con
nection, and especially the refusal of the Canadian
Parliament to butden itself with a heavy expense to
guard against au imaginary danger of invasion from
this side, are all referred to in a manner offensive to
colonial pride, and one would think damaging to
colonial loyalty. Tlie Canadians are plainly told by
high authority that they are of no essential value in
time of peace, that they will not defend themselves
and are not worth the cost of defending by the moth
cr country in time of war. and that altogether they
area very disagreeable and troublesome set of peo
ple. This style cf speech has been going ou for some
time, but it has not before assumed so positive and in
sulring a form, and we look with some curiosity to
see how it wiil be taken by the Canadians. II w it
would be taken if our own affairs were tranquil and
we ottered a connection with British North America
the advantages which we cuce did, and to which na
ture and geography so clearly point, there can be no
question. But in that case the insulting words
would not have been spoken.
