Ttosy have not fallen?they have not been worsted?they have always beaten I be enemy wherever they have encountered him. When they shall have been beaten aud dispersed so that they can never rally again, then it may be time to feel gkxmy about our prospects. Until that time shall have arrived it wore uumanly to despond, far less to think of abandoning tbo causo. Even then the last resource of a brave cation,resolved not to be enslaved, remans to us We can even then, as rtber nations have done before ua, resolve ourselves isio a guerilla force, composed of the whole country, awl fight the battle for life or death throughout a mi/lion of square miles. But that time Is i?>t come They have not beaten our armies in pitched battle*, nor do we believe tbey will ever do it. fkaure gurd, Kith a powerfvX foree, it ttill the guardian of the Southwest.

North State He enemy has nevor been able to obtain sr U vantage over us, except by means of bla gunboats. Take bim ?way from them, and we can always defeat him. D* the lot* of New Orleans we an sepiraled from West Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and Missouri. But many or the brave troops from tbat side of the river are with us, tad those that are there will still keep up tbe light, la splto of their isolation. Tbey will thus constantly employ a large portion of tho enemy 's army and serve as a powerful diversion in our favor. If every seaboard town in the confederacy, and every river town which can be reached by gunboats, were in the fos-eaion of the enemy tomorrow, it would not have the slightest effect upon the i'sue of this qpntest. It would not be so disastrous ss a defeat of Beauregard's army, or give half tbe same causo for despondency. Fortunately, they took do prisoners; eur troops remain to reinforce Beauregard or to go rise where as they may be ordered. The event of this war is still as much in the bunds of our people as it wss before the fall of New Orleans. Having made himsslr master of tbe river ami seaboard towns, tbe enemy, if be wish to conquer us, must come into the Interior. There be will have to beat our swmitss, without the aid of his iron-clad boats, before lie can boasl of having subdued the country. In the meantime the oc cupation of so many points must necessarily tend to tho weakening of bis strength upon those )>oiuts on which tlie grand issue ia to bo decided, and thus lar his success is scarcely a disadvantage to us. Let our country men imitate tbe firm and magnanimous conduct of our sires in the Revolution, and we doubt not to see our cause gloriously triumphant. [From the Norfolk Day Book, April 29.J Our anticipations from tbe imperfect nows of yesterday havo been realized. The city of New Orloans has fallen, and tbo sudden shock falls upon us unbroken by any previous foreboding. This is by fur the most serious rnxrse of the tear. It sugijei-ts future privation and want to all ?Utut nr mrielu: btU. lnod to be tarn, n'ed of all, it threatens amy supplies t Nor is this all; when tno lamm ms completed their iron-clad navy they will take every im portant point upon the coast, except in those cases where a wise discretion may permanently obstruct our harbors. It will be remembered by our readers that immedi ately after the 8th and 9tb ult., we took the position we have bere restated. Wo must obstruct the channe'g leading to tbe soar-oast towns wo wish to preserve, and abandon the impracticable at tempt at holding any point which cannot be thus protected. It is true that it is a sad picture to con template. but reason arsures us that it may yet be held up for oar reluctant contemplation. As we fall back wa shorten our lines: as we shorten them tbey are strength ened. Tbe reparation of this disaster, so far aa it may bo repaired, rests not with tho Executive, nor with the Cabinet, nor with Congress, nor with any headquarters, but with tbe people. Tbe arms-besring part of our population must rally to tbe flag of the republic, and the planters must concen trate their energies upon tbe production of meat and bread for our Srmies. )Ve confess that we, in common u-iih wiser nten, were deluded into the general beli'f in the suprematy of cotton. We had high authority for theboliof. Tbe "commerce of the world bangs by a thread," said Mr. Dickens, and the truth of this declaration may yet be come manifest; but cotton as a political agent is done for. "None bo poor to do it reverenoe" as a blockade raiser,but thousands to appreciate the fact that when the war does end a large cotton supply on hand will be a large fortuue. . The fame applies to tobacco planter! in a more limited degree. They rau afford to wait, seeiug in tbe future a gol den harvest Tor the holders of tbesi staples. Rut to roalire they must actually hold, not as trustees, under the con fiscation act,for Lincoln, but for themselves?hold as owners. T? do this they must interpose armies between tbe enemy and their plantations', to i-.tefpore the armies they miirit feed them; to lead them they must plant corenh1, and lot tbeir dreams of fortune be somewhat modified in their msgniOccnt proportions. Hog and hominy aic far more important than Citlou and ubnccn.and by the extent of the supply to be fur nished by tbe os-Missiwippi rogion wo moat measure the extent or our calamity. With an ample preparation for the supply of uur armies, we shall bo able to achieve our liberties. Disasters to a bravo people are but tbe falls of An - tans, from v.bi h they rise with renewed <nergi<a mid a llriner purpose. We havo faith in our ultimate sue est. but fehoiild this provo fall&etrus wo ran remember tbe example of Paragon, remember and emulate it. I?t us put our humble tru.-t in (ind,aad fight from soocoast t> Interior,leaving monuments to commemoiato our rc*-< lution n|?on evory tiold. Animate.i ly.this determinate i, we can say to their boasts of conquoHt in the heroic lan guage of Wise, at Roanoke?Never, uc\ er. nevnr. |Krom the Atlanta (fia.) intelligencer, April 27.] Th" telegrn| h tells us that the enemy are bofore Now Orleans?probably they are now in po^se^ion of the Crescent City. What resistance lina been made theia to its occupation wc know not. With their f.unboais re sistKtice may have lieeu useless, and it in more than pro bable none waa made. Having parsed Fort Jack.?>n, it seems from the enemy's rapid approach to the city but a fa'We defence was madoon tbe river from that poiut to the city. H'r. AttU looked for a Aiff'ctnt irmlt. Time and again wo hid b?en advised that tbe enemy 's approach to the rity, -bould they succeed in passing Fort Jackson, would bu hotly conte-tod?thst oven stronger works of defence than st Kort .In.kion had been erected?that heavier artillery waa planted on the batteries upen the bank' of the river?that obstructions of a most for midable character were on the river?and that a sue <.essfol resistance to lis capture would he made. Tn this It appears that we have beon de luded, as in every other rasa where a fort has been assailed upon which reliance waa put lor tbe defence of a town or city. Modern invention*, It seems, render forta useless for defence. Iron clad gun boats destroy, or pass them by with certaiuty. Memphis. we <nfrfhm4, will rkiirn the fa't of Aew Orlti.tf. To de luito ourselves with any other hope is now a folly. We ought and must prepay rot the worst?that w*rst is the occupation of m<et of our cities, with water approaches, by the enemy. A sound |?>llcy would dictate, what pa triotism and self-prerervailon|dcm*nd, the destruction of every speriee otyroparty that would benefit tho enemy ere ibeyget possession of any city, and the lemoval tbeiefn in of everything of value to our-eives. I?t noihing fail iuto their hands of value to thein?snvc all we can of valuo to us. Charlrrlm. Xavfttinah n*d Mm I ?hit are now imm iHalrly thrrntriicd. Wo hive no foars that In these citlcM so wise and patriot to a policy, a d-ity in fact, will be neglected. When the enemy ent- r New Orleans, we hope that they will be sadly disappointed tn the "booty and beauty '' they expect to derive from ibe achievement of their gutiboits. [from the Petersburg (Va.) Fxpress, April 20.) TI1K NEW ORI.ISANM DIMA8T3R. The captura ?f New Orleans by the enemy is, under ihe circ msianees, one of the mini minvrdi <v y ennit iuhah (*!<! tcoi /io*1 ro'ifht forthf We could cons ime column in commenting ui>on It, and tn do ng so we would necessarily have to iodulgo In a variety of remarks far from being I compl.mciitary to ilie conductors of (be defencea of this ail} But as ?? fcttonrsh ng a mult must have been pro. duoed in a moat astonishing way, w? muat await full ex planations before expressing a harsh Judgment. In the absence of all information aa to particulars, we are un willing to denounce Id uuspairlng terms tho conductor the garrisons in the forts and of the commander of the city forces. It will be time enough to do thia after hav ing been put in possesion of all the facta. Meanwhile we have to look the (llaaster full In the face, and consider It In its important connections as to the future. The blow which has been struck ua ia undoubtedly a very severe one; bat if General Lorxii and all his army, munition* and stores art safe?if all the cotton, tobacco, dec., u.ert destroyed , the coin of the bantu tocured,nnd everything flse that would be of value to Ihe enemy put out of his reach, the How hat hten stripped of more than half of tit terror. We will be undoubtedly subjected to new and gnat ineon veniencea by tbo Iofs of that city, bat Its occupancy by the Yankees will be anything elae but an agreeable one, now that the yellow fever season is near at hand, which for months will prove fataMo the Northern untiee!(mated troops by which it will have to be held. They have got (he olopluuit, it Is true, but it is a prlzo which will eoet them vastly more to keop than the aniutal ia worth, if his Sotfron Majesty s'>?'i make hia usual annual visit to Ike cj<v aud wave his scspw* Jwspitaia there. What dry straw ia to the ttamei ynfi ?"*?; raw, uninured Northorners, be to the Gulf pes tilence when it breaks out amongst thorn. Even ooe half of the old resident population of the city have here tofore fled every eummer to higher latitudes to escape its ravages. So, in this point of view, the enemy han very little causo to exult over hia succoss. He will be, too, in the midst of a.hostile people, who will not trade with him, and his acquisition will be aa valueless in a commercial as in a sanitary sense. But thore Is auother aspect of the matter still mere cheering to the Confederates. The large and fine army which M'O.1 assigned for the defence of Tftio Orleans can now bt tini'rd with the nrmy at Cur in'h in time to a<H*t tn Ihe grtcU -.cork of driving the Vandah out of Anilities and Kentucky, and in a march acr<.s the Ohio?a movement which, wo cannot doubt, will be commenced and carried through aa neon as tho Ton iiesece, Cumberland and Ohio rivers become too shuliow for 6unbent navigation. Then will be our op portunity for btriking a crushing blow tbat will more than ri?lneni all our louse?. We want to see a column of 150,000 Southern troops led onbv Beauregard through tht Aor'hivesltrn, and ai'Othrr column Of the saint ttrength (hrouyh the Northern Skitfj by Johnston, so that whilst i ho Yankees are inking our C0c6t and river cities, wo will be sweeping theirs; nnd then we would see who ul.l suffer most aud endure their sufferings longest* Tho Romans, in a iuemorablo crisis, fought the battles of Italy in Nutniriia, and thus drove their Carthagemnn (almost) conquerors from their own gates. Let us tli;ht tl:c buttles of the South upon Northern soil. The capture of Philadelphia or New York would be to us a guarantee of peaco in thirty days upon our own terms. We ha>* 400,000 soldiers in the field of whom Napoleon, in tho zonith of his glory, might have been proud. They would movo with alacrity in the direction of Yankeo land, if the word was jugt*given them from Richmond. Oh, that it may be given ! as it ought to have been twelve months ago Besides this huge army, which.could easily support itself In the enemy's country, wo would have a reserve suili nUintly nnworful to protect our vast Interior, comprising a compact and populous territory vctrnm ?*? sippi and Atlantic, equal in extent to that of France, Great Britain and Ireland (leaving out half of Virginia and all Kentucky and Tennessee), whilst our trans-Mis sissippi territory (leaving out Missouri), comprised a still larger area. The idea of a conquest of snch a country is preposterously absurd, nnd Ihe fall of New Orleans, although to be muchRunented, does not put the invaders an inch nearer the consummation of their ac cursed purpose. II may, in the dispensation of Providence, turn oat to have been for ua an advantageous event. The ways of God are mysterious, and He directs the affairs of men so as often to lead them to consider an evnnt calamitous which Afterwards proves the happiest that could have occur red for their welfare. We have long since "Sled our mind" down to the belief, tbat if the cause of ihe South is Divinely favored, it win and must triumph, if not, it will and must perish, were it supported by millions of armed men and hundreds of iron clad war vessels of the most powerful description. So far we have had alter nate successes and reverses which have not been de* eisivo. We must flgbt on with a more terrible energy than we have yet done. We must now concentrate our forces at fewer points, and hurl tbom upon the foe. We must abandon the merely defensive policy, and assume and maintain at all hazards the position of bolli;eronts, able to give as well as receive bloWs. With half a mil lion of men prepared and eager for action, we can make ourselves felt beyond the limits of the confederacy. ADnirxmi. Sine* the above nag written wo hive received further intelligence fr<?m Now Orleans, which represents tjjal al though the loilcrn) fleet wag before the city the enemy bad not taken po*s<-ssivn, becauM they hive no forces to occupy it. It la rumored that we had mvrral itry formid able yunlxtab at tort Pillem when the federate paued thr. foiii l? low .Vt OrUatu, an<t that a portion of three have br?n, er'lhii, d-jspatehed to Item Orleans. They may be enabled to destroy a portion of ti.e Yankee vessels, If not ail, and thus pave the city. We trust that the rumor mity prove true, aud tliut our flotilla may accom,.ii'h ai' that is hoped for. The rumor regarding tha protest of the French and Kngli>h men 01 war, mentioned in our despatches, nm* be corn ct. It is staled thnt no civilized notion wit ?v<w known to shell a city after it had boon evacuated' by tlio troop* collected for Its defence. Whether the Ynukoe nation will conform to usage in tiiid matter remain? to besocn. We fear that wo have but littlo to expect from so bloodthirsty and unscrupulous a foe. At farthest, ! the fate of New Orleans must be deflii'toly aece.talcwl in a day or two. ink talk or tirr d*t. The common " talk on 'Change" Jj o( course the ren dition of afntirs in aud around New Orleans. The official d)'H|atch exhibited cn our bulletin board yestjrdoy moriiing, while it gives a ray of hope, serves only to in u<\.re the anx>ouu interest fell, io tho fate of thia groat commercial city. But all is mystery yet, aud all the arguments ;ind discissions on the street corners and in I he hole's, or elsewhere, cannot clear away the impeoe traljg >hroud thaj covcrs this affair. It is our ualnre to clinR to the "lightest hope iV the best, but we feor wo are depending upon a slender thread indeed-If we anticipate a successful resistance now to the Yankees there.

The Reported Preparations of the Rebels (o Resist Generals Banks ami McDowell. Impending Battle North of Richmond. THE LIKE OF THE CHICXAHOM1NY, Ac., Ac., Ac. (From (lie Richmond Examiner, April 23"] The clouds of war thicken each moment. The enemy are pouring largo forcoa into the valley of the Rappt* bannock from several direction!. McClellan is reported to have despatched a body of troop* up the Rappahan nock from the bay to reinforce McDowell's division at Fredcrlcksburg. A citizen of Fauquier, who arrived yesterday, reports a large army is advancing from War* r en ten. Gen. Jackson Is r.uld to have fallen back from the valley to Gordonsvllle before Banks, who follow# after him with a oolumn of about thirty thousand men. If Banks and McDowell should combino their division*^ which is probably their purpose, Richmond would be threatened from the direction of the Potomac with sixty thousand men. . Our yoMrnmetU hat ordered heaiy rein/orcemmts tt nuet these approach xng e c/ui.in?, and it is wry proMbie thai a decisive battle may be fuvohl north of Richmond befori that on the Peninsula has transpired. Oar beet lighting generals havo pursued tho policy of giving the enemy a fierce fight before falling back under the pressure of superior forces. This was the tactics of Jackson at WiM chestor; and if ho is let alone, will doubtless be hi* tactics again before falling back behind the line of tlx Cliickahcminy. Tlio eirort of the enemy will doubtless be to effort a junction of his forcos under Bauks and McDowell somewhere In the county of Louisa or Oare* line. We supposo it will be necessary for General Jackson to withdraw until he can get both of these column* in his front. This done, the Uiatinots of the man will, doubtless, induce him to offer a battle. Ou* Corinth is on tho Chlcknhnminy, and our Shiloh some. *liero in advance in Caroline or Louisa. H'e ihould not If. surjnit'd itt hearing within a iceek of a Jieice bW.lt on this advanced theatre, wherever it may be. Wo augur well for the result nf any engagement thai ir.ay como oil in that region of country. The enemy will bo far from his water baso of operation*. He will bo compelled to meet u* on eq al tonus in every respect excopt hi; superior numbers, and w> can manage pretty heavy odds of these. A col lier accounted in a soldier's saiiKla. tory way for our yielding at last in ouo of our most l:iii>ori?\ui battles. He said we whipped them lb* best i art of the timo, and as long as we could fivht.and ?<? Should have whipped ttirm nil cb? <im? if Off had not "out reinforced" until there was no cud to litem. They got toe better of us on th?recou4 day at Shiloh aim ply by this process of '?out-reinforcing" us, which their proximity to tho river enabled them to do. If they com* iu upon us ii" far as Caroline or Luiisa, thoy will be so fa? from their water transixirtatkin that this favorito plan o "out reinforcing" will be Impracticable. Whatever odds thev open the battle with, those odds only will.they hold against us. The men that fight and ?r? whipped one day will havo to fight and be whipped the next If tbey renew the encounter. A whipped army will not rest while ? fresh army comes forward to engage our troope, worn aud weary with a day's exertion and excitement, as aa otbsr ore*: ions. It is n<; for us to dirulge the tinnier of our ownUfpt thai art (Oncentrating on the linet north tf Richmond. Suffice it to sap, that we bdie.ee them to b? ample towHp stand am? repulse the enemy. Thero is this further coursging feature or the campaign in that direction, namely: that both Generals Jackson and Ewell have lb# reputation of being fighting generals. Karneat and vigo rous work on our side is all that is wanted. Dlepute every mi'e of the rood, sell every foot of territory for blood, la the true tactic*. The sage policy of the back track may do very well at times, aud the virtue of spades and sand bass may l>e very great in the proper place; but here is a campaign In open Hold, where numbers will not l>o greatly unequal, and where neither sidd has had time for engineering and dirt digging. That country, too, oilers many battle fields; and, as this war at last must be decided by battles, bet ter i hat they should bo fought promptly and bravely than postponed to more convenient seasons aid localities. If Kichmoud is to fall by the want of va'or in tioopt or conduct in general.", It may as well fall this mont' the next; and if the enemy is to bo driven '?M(j|rMI|| disgraced from our .oil, far belter -?|at u ^<lM b,d0D,' wheu thty bave^fr-.^^ entered thin after they have !
