The traveler through the upper part of the Stale of Mississippi may have noticed about two miles north of Han gt own, in the county of . a ptetaresqae old church, known in the surrounding country as Mount Sinai. Standing as it dues, at a distance from anv human habitation, in a Mack-jack and nine grove: its roof j and v. catiior-lioariling Mack limn ex- ! possre to the weather, and covered with patches of moss; iis windows I tiled in many places with shingles instead ol glass; its once well painl ed shutters gone or swinging in the wind upon one hinge, giving forth a creaking accompaniment to the sigh ing ot the wind through the pines; around it is a well Blled grave-yard, the last resting-places of several generations of Bungtowners, some with stately toinhs. on which are re corded their numerous virtues; others, more humble, and perhaps betti r men, without a stone to mark their names ; standing thus, amidst these surroundings, the appearance of Sinai Church is as desolate and gloomy as can well be imagiued ; so that a natural impulse traveler, as he passes nil his horse, and g gloom which seems to of tilt elv y, is to spar i t out of hang ov er the the place, as soon as possiiue. And in due course of time its reputation came to correspond with its appearance. Stories were circu lated in the neighborhood of strange sights and sounds having been heard and seen in and aliout the old church, i It was currently reported that un earthly shrieks and wailing had been heard ill and aliout it, and Zeke Thompson, who lived up above the church on Toon Creek, even ii,. flared that one night as he was riiiing by, he saw a white figure, which glided aliout among the tombs, and at length mounted one of them near the road and waved its arms at him wil.lly. as he passed. He, clap ping spurs to bis horse, as off at full speed, not daring back to see. heard loud and ly shrieks In hind him. rode to line i i Some few pooph story ; but as the 1 w as a Sat unlay id; returning home where he had spell believed ght in i eke's stiou it, and Zeke was oai Bnngtown, the evening with ids at Jim Price's a number of his friends "grocery,1' many o.ily heads and laughed at 1 shook their im whenever he told his story.

I It prefers to wait for the publication of en. Lee's history is tin-best reply to Lee's history is the best . ( Sen. Early's injustice. Gordon, when sent to the left of our lines, found that his brigade o er- lapped tlie right of the enemy. At early hour he scooted in front ;!' him and found no troops. He saw exactly where the right nannoi ine enemy lay, and discernt i ai a glance that not only could our troops on the ngnr, wnicn were nam pressexl, be relieved by a flank movement on his part, but that the entire Federal army could lie lioillileil up. Hi' iran wa ,i to charge down on the enemy's flank and throw it into confusion, and as he moved down in pursuit, to be join ed by the other divisions of our army in quick succession a movement similar to that which wos executed by Stonevi scale in th idea was t, I Jacl seven ;son Aa v on a larger battle.

Gordon moved out of I hi position, threw his troops across; enemy's Hank and charged. The I "; effect was magical. The defeat of the enemy was complete. The ground was literally covered with guns and j knapsacks, and an entire corps Was driven back in utt'-r mute. Gordon I captured more of the enemy than his own troops numbered, and left three thousand killed and woonded on the field After pursuing the enemy aj mile, and throwing their "troop in inextricable confusion, night came on. ami in consequence of some Vir ginia troops w hich had crossed the breastworks in their front to join in ! the charge, firing by accident into his men. Gordon stopped I he aii ance. He is confident, that had he been pi rmitted to make the attack in the morning, Grant would have been driven across the river. Gen. Early in his work says that the movement was a dangerous one. because Burn side's corps was resting in the rear of the one attacked by Gordon. This, however, was nm the ease. Blirnside, as may be seen from Sa inton's his torv, was on the opposite v ing ot the Federal army. The same movement which was j executed so successfully against Giant, he afterwards made against the left of Slietidan at Cedar moun tain. The plan was originated by Gordon and carried out handsomely ; so long as he had execution of it. He doubled up the two corps of the en emy and broke them into fragments. ; w ith a loss on their side of ten thou satin, and on bis ow n of only two hundred and fifty. They threw away arms and accoutrements and rushed through W inchester in utter route The remaining corps was demoral ized, and would have broken at the first charge. Gordon ordered the entire artillery, fifty pieces, to gallop up the pike ami enfilade the reserve corps. At the same time he prepared lo move against them without delay, with infantry. Just then Gen. Ear ly rode up and exclaim d, " Glory enougu tor one nay I l. union him that no time was to he lost, explained what movements he ordered lor the attack- upon tin maining coips.

The Hew Fork Triliuur, in a long article full of radical advice to Oca. John C. Breckinridge, closes with the following truthful and complimentary epitome of his public service : The graceful and wise little speech made the other day by Mr. John C, Breckinridge, on. the occasion of his ; return, after a four years exile, to his old home, suggests the work for which the country looks to this gentleman, and which, as hopefully trust, it may yet receive at his hands, nre j man whoso career in tho service oi me t loveriimeiit Wiis unev- mntiniiiillv Knez-pssfhl and hnRinne whose eareer in warfere upon it was scarcely loss conspitoious, and who returns to resume tne duties of loval and tail h! ul citizenship at an age when most uie'.i are only reaching the full maturity nf their powers. Tho grandson of Thomas Jefferson's At torney General, and of one of the earliest United States Senators from Kentucky, he inherited devotion to the public service with his name, and learned the love of the Union with the lessons of his childhood. At twenty -five he was Major of a Ken- nd tucky regiment in the war with Mex 0111 ieo; at twenty six, he was counsel I for General Pillow, in the remarkable aimcumes in wmcu that otneer was involved ; at twenty-eight, he was a member of the lower House in the Kentucky Legislature ; at thirty, ho was a representative in Congress, having defeated in the canvass so popular a Konttickiun as Gen. Leslie Combs; at Thirty-two, he was again returned to Congress after an excit ing contest, in which he defeated Gov. Robert Letcher; at thirty-four he was Vice President of the United States, and at thirty-seven he was the nominee of one wing of the domi dant party for the Presidency. The youngest and most favored man in the country who had ever run such a round of otiieial honors up to the very verge of the highest preferment, he chose, in 1861, to link his fortunes with the section that had so earnestly supported him for the Presidency, aad entered the Confederate service. At thirty fight, the man who thirteen years before had served the goverr ment as a soldier on a foreign soil, was a Major General in the armies that strove to break up the govern ment, and at forty-two he was Secre tary of war of the insurgent Confed eracy. Then followed a dreary fear years of exile, and now in his forty ninth year just at the age when such men are entering upon the fail and ripe maturity of their powers v igorous, and yet capable of a life time's w in k this soldier uf the Mex ican war.

Get il Hancock was, says the Louisville Courier .Journal, the most prominent Democratic candidate for the Presidency ill opposition to Gen. Grant. He well deserved to be tho candidate f his party, and, if nomi nated, he would have been elected, for tln re are in his character and in his deeds all the elements and mate rials fitted to excite popular admira tion and enthusiasm. Vet, for the crime of having been the leading ri val of the present incumbent, and only for that crime, he is exiled to Dacotah, where he will be cut off from all possibility ot winning re nown or of enjoying any of the high I rewards which his grateful country men would srladlv see conferred uiioii him. There is lio nobler living name than his upon our country's annals ; and there is no obscurer or more un enviable retreat than that to which the tyranny of authority has consign ed him. Liberality and generosity are by general consent considered military virtues, but unfortunately all military men do not posses them. Etitler 011 the Cabinet. A Washington dispatch to the Cin cinnati Enquirer, says: Unless ail si .us fail, the old feud between Butler and Grant will soon break out with renewed vi-or. Tleti- jamin enjoys the 'situation' very much, and laughs heartily over the mistake of his old enemy. They tell a good and true little story of his opinion of the Cabinet in this way : It is well known that John A.

He was warm ly urged by the politicians of the Em pire State, and had good reason to believe he would be successful. Ben.
