.DEPB&OATIOK3 OF THE ENEJll' ON
A highly intelligent gentleman, a planter on
the Mississippi river, yesterday informed us that
within the last three weeks, nearly, ii not quite
one mHlion dollars worth of negroes have been
takeniby the Yankees, or enticed off by them,
from the counties of Tunica and Coahoma.
Most of this could have been saved by a single
battalion of cavalry operating along or near the
The Yankees have also secured about fifteen
hundiod baks of cotton in that section, and are
now making their way down to Bolivar county,
having reached the vioinity of Huspuckana,
near Saoflewer landing. Near this locality
they were met on Saturday last by the Bolivar
Troop, a company of the Istregiment Mississippi
cavalry, which had been on a visit to Bolivar
county, under command of Lieutenant-Colonel
Montgomery, and which was at the time on its
way back to headquarters.
This troop reached the vicinity of Sunflower
landing on Friday night, and bearing that the
Yankees were at T. IL McNeil's, engaged in
hauling oil his ootten, Col. Montgomery

but the Yankees bad already gono off with the
kvst cotton about day-light, carrying with them
thirty-five of Mr. McNeil's negroes. Colonel
Montgomery then fell back about two miles to
Judge ToTTEN'S place, setting fire to the cot
ton there, and detailing men to bum the cotton
at other places in that neighborhood. Late in
the afternoon, the approach of the Yankees to
ward Judge Totten's made known by the
firing of our pickets posted about a mile up the
road. The pickets fell back slowly, Co1.Mont

at least two hundied and fifty men, (this being
tbe nuiaber stationed for two. days past at Mr.

The activity and success of our partisau
friends in Mkseuri k as gratifying to us as it is
banassi'tg and mortifying to the enemy. In
every part of the State bands have been formed,
who sppear to be at work not only with itesl,
but also with as much concert of action as is
possible with such organizations, and as the
scattered troops of tbe Federal army offer rare
przs, several marked successful movements
have already beeu made.
The St Louis RepvUican, of tbe 4th, contains
numerous notices of recent movements. It
states that on tbe 29:h a company, headed by
Capt. John Mekiuck, late of Price's army,
entered Catrollten and destroyed the abolition
newspaper tffioe. Doing no further damage,
they marehed for Sugar Treo Bottom, where a
large force was concentrating. Another organ
ization is reported near Keitsville. A laree
force crossed the Missouri river at Moberly's

steamboat. This force mil cross the railroad,
over 1000 strong. Porter crossed tko railroad
going north on the 3ist July, with from 1200 to
1500 men. A correspondent of tho Republican
siys be has over 2000 armed men north of the
Hannibal and St. Jo railroad, which force will
in a iew days be increased to a formidable

hovered over Missouri during Fremont's ono
haodred days of ruinous reign, was light to the

IiETTEItS FROM KICSHMOrVD.
Richmond. July 23, 1SG2
Spechl Correspondence of the Memphis ApreaLJ
There is absolutely nothing to write, and yet
I write this letter to say so.
Tho enemy has advanced his pickets, wo hear,
in the direction of Malvern IB1I, and there has
been somo sharp skirmishing on two occasions
of late in that neighborhood, but it is very diffi
cult to excite interest now in a skirmish, since
the trreat conflicts of a mouth ago. This sort of
fighting is only regarded so fur as it is indicative
of the enemy's purpose to bring on a general
engagement. McClellan's preparations for an
other move upon Richmond are not made, and
any little clash of swords or rattle of bullets in
the bushes that may be heard from his quarter
will bo only to dmrt attention from tho move
ments and oporations of General Pope to tho
north of the city.
General Popo is the coming man. Ho spoaks
like ono having authority. He appears to con
sider that after all, the matter of taking Rich
mond has been left to him as a special arrange
ment of the God of Battles. lie. has been in
Washincten. and was there lionizjd for a few
days as the future conqueror of Jackson and
crusher-out of rebellion to his msjesty. Who
would not wish to bo the PopeT Since bis arrival
in Virginia ho has carried things with a high
hand, and hb orders sound like the thunders
of" the Vatican. All disloyal persons, t. e. all
persons who will not swear to uphold Lincoln
and his government, are to be arrested and held
es prisoners. Tho property of rebels is to bo
confiscated. The negroes are to be used to
carry on the war. And, already, these orders
have been executed in some cases. Several of
the most prominent and virtuous citizens of
Fredericksburg have been arrested in their
beds General Pope appears to eDjoy midu'ght
arrests and hurried off from their families to
Northern prisons. Very well let tho ball pro
ceed, bnt perhaps this "coming man" may
chance to fall into cur hau3s, and then
Halleck has paid a visit to MoClellan at Har
rison's Bar, being now commander-in-chief and
naturally desirous of knowing how the land lies
between Berkeley and Richmond.
Frequent ilag of ttuco trains have gone into
City Point of late, with wounded Yankee pris
oners, sent down from this city. Tho officers in
charge of them report a largo flotilla below tho
Point rivor covered with schooners, biigs and
steamers. City papers complain, with a good
deal of reason, of the conduct of our officers iu
drinking juleps and otherwise holding friendly
relations with the Yankee colonels, majors and
captains, sent up to receive the prisoners. Very
undignified and unbecoming to cay the least of
it. A Philadelphia philanthropist, one Ralston,
(I think this is the name,) had arrived at City
Point with a lrga supply of luxuries for tLe
wounded of McClellan's army, furnished at his
own (Ration's) expense, and was anxious to
come on to Richmond to visit the prison hospi
tals here. Philanthropist was so full of the milk
of human kindness, tbat ho seemed quite indif
ferent whether the Yauke wounded cr our own
wounded received his dainties, and gave Dr.
Callen two boxes of lemons and several big
lumps of ice to bring home. All very fine this,
but philanthropist ought not, in the judgment
ef your correspondent, to be permitted to set his
foot within our lines. Time Donnas et dona
The Enquirer of this morning chronicles a
dashing enterprise in a small party of Confede
rates, (five irraumber,) in boarding and setting
fire to a large Yankee transport below City Point j
and bringing off tho captain a prisoner. Firing
into these vessels still goes on sporadically from
the banks of tho river, and no Yaukee pilot feels
himself safe in ascending the stream.
The last truce risoner train bronght ns the
New York and Philadelphia papers of Friday
and Saturday. Ex-President Van Buren died
at Kinderhook, on Friday, 25th, at 2 a. m.. and
the Times, of that morning, publishes a three-
column sketch of his political career, not only
written in advance of the mournful event, but.
by tho very necessity of the case, actually set
up in type beforehand. Gold bad fallen two per
cent, iu tho money maiket, but this was dno not
to any increased confidence in the government,
but to thw arrival of several millions from tho
West, producing a temporary glut 1a Wall street.
The enlistment business was little improved
The bounties held out for volunteers appeared to
have had but little more tffcet than tho immense
reward offered by Benjtmin Bowbells in the
ploy for a disinterested person who should con
sent to be buried alivo iu his place. Nothing
but the draft will get the desired three hundred
thousand, but the draft is easy and tho men will
come. There is no doubt about that. As to Eu
ropean intervention, the hope of it grow3 smaller
and smiller with tho European cotton supply,

No littlo dissatisfaction is expressed that in
the cartel for tho exchange of prisoners no pro
vision has been made for tho liberation of tho
non-combatant Confederato citizens who havo
been seized by tho officers of the United States
government and carried off to pine iu Yankeo
dungeons. By the terms of tho cartel, citizens
can only he exchmged for citizens, and in tho
very nature of the cose we cannot have any
thing like an equal number of such prisoners
with the Yankees. The only non-combatants
among the enemy likely to fall into cur hands
are the teamsters, sutlers, chaplains, camp fol
lowers, etc., etc , that wo may chance to tako
upon a battle field, with now and then some im
prudent and adventurous member of Congress
like Mr. Ely, and but one other class remains to
be considered as subjects for exchango with our
captured citizens, and this class is composed of
tho traitorous Virginians, Tonnesseeans and
Kentuckians who uphold Lincoln's despotic
authority. But heretofore it has not been our
custom upon entering disloyal districts of the
Confederate States, to-arrest peaceable and un
offending citizens in i heir-beds, and wo have no
considerable number of persons of the disloyal
class to givo up for our own brave and unfortu
nate brethren who have been imprisoned
by Andy Johnson, Gen. Lew. Wallace, Gen.
Butler, Gen. Pope, and tho other minions of the
despot at Washington. So that Messrs. Ssuloand
Mazurcan must bide their time; tho Nashville cler
gymen, who feared God and did not fear Andy
Johnson, must languish Iu indefinite confine
ment: and the six prominent gentlemen of
Fredericksburg, who were hurried eff at mid
night last week, cannot expect to see home or
family till the end of tho war ; while hundreds
of others in simili casu, who havo already sick
ened of the heartless cruelty of the North, must
yet longer boar it as best they may. The matter
is involved in some difficulty, it is true, for if
soldiers and officers could be demanded by tbe
Yankees in exchange for citizens, Lincoln would
orderat once the arrest of the whole population of
New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville, Norfolk, and
ports of rural Virginia, nox in passcssion of his
troops, to he kept for exchange, for the next ten
or twenty thousand soldiers taken prisoner by
Lee, Jackson, Price, Van Dorn, Morgan or
Stuart. Still it does seem a hardship that noth
ing can be dono for these unhappy innocent
victims of Northern hatred. As for the mem
hers of tho Maryland Legislature and the eminent
clt:zeus of Baltimore, who have so long borne
with bravo hearts and unflinching resolution tho
iniprhonufcnt in Fort Warren, wo can only say,
all honor to the faithful and true men who keep
their loyalty, and love, and zeal unchilled by
the coldness of the Northern dungeon what
ever fate may betide Maryland they shall not be
forgotten by the South.
On dit in well informed circles that President
Davis is about to issue a proclamation upon tho
future conduct of the war, of which tho throe
most important and interesting points' will be
theso 1. That Benjamin F. Butler, by his bru
tal tyranny over tho people of New Orleans,
and especially by his order concerning the ladios
of that city, has written himself down hortis Ah
mani generis, and is to be dealt with as a wild
boar "pursuing his vocation," or othnr beast

RtcmtOND, July 30, 1SG2.
Tiiero is an unusual activity in military mat
ters just now. Yesterday a long train of artil
lery, numbering more than fifty pieces with
their caissons, passed up Main street, attracting
great attention, for cash battery had signalized
itself in the recent battles before the city, aud
several of them carried along with their own

It is generally believed that McCltdlan is I peoplo of Norfolk, cut off from all communica-.

acts with regard to the people of Virginia tem
porarily uuder subjugation to him, has violated
all tbe usages of civilized warfare, aud h3 there

courtesies, and that should he, or any officer ser
ving under him, at any time ho taken prisoner
by the Cunfedurate army, he or they shall be
exempted from tho provisions of tho recent car
tel and kopt in close confinement till the close of
th- war 3. That, whereas, one Gen. Hunter
has reported to the Secretary of War of the
United Suttee that he is engaged in enlisting ne
gro slaves in tho military sorvica of his govern
ment, and the same has been approved by the
President and commended to tho immitation of
other Federal officers, therefore the said Hunter
aud all who follow him in thus instigating the
slaves to fight against their masters, are to be
considered as having forfoitod all claim upon
our consideration arising out of tho chances

satisfaction by all parts of the Confederacy and

part of tho Yankees, as promised by Lincoln,

appointed in their stead better fitted to carry out
the brutal purposes of tho government. Gen
Mansfield, who formerly held sway iuFrsdriofes-
burg aud griovously offjndod Lincoln by th9 le
niency he exhibited, is about to uudergo a mili
tary examination under cbargo of having been
a gentleman when he should have bson a ruffian;
aad Gen. Ville, whose conduct ia Norfolk "was
on the whole free' from severity, has been re
placed by ono Max Webber, a low German
whoso cruelty of disposition is a sufficient guar
antee tbat ho wnl reign over tho "rebels" of
"that obstinate city" with & rod of iron. The
provost marshal there, who is also a German, by
name Christenson, bos for a longtime given such
next-to impossible almost that tho fevor should
not bo brought from Norfolk to Harrison's bar,.
and thus spread throughout his encampment.
Speaking of the German governor and pro
vost marshal of Norfolk, just now, reminds me
that it can scarcely havo failed to strike any un
prejudiced observer with what baso ingratitude
the Germans as a class havo turnod agaiust trie
South, in this war waged upon us by the Yan
kees. It is but seven years ago that the Know
nothing party, whoso cordial principle was the
political proscription of foreigners, was crushed
by Henry A. Wiae, in Virginia, and now they
tura upon their former friends with a fury that
nothing can exceed, and nothing, but tho cour
age of our troops, can restrain. It seems, too,
that Lincoln is encouraging, by every means in
his power, tho enlistment of the German popu
lation of the United States, as if to make tke
parallel the more complete between him
self and George the III. The British monarch
employed the subjects of the- Landgrave of
nesse Cassel, to fight his battles in America,
by the thousands ; Lincoln employs the Hi s
siaus of the Northwest to fight the secessionists
by the hundred thousand, and the Tiirelings
come, as did .their predecessors of 1777, witheut
tho least knowledge of the merits of the contro
versy, and caring littlo beyond the plunder they
may secure in tha conflict; and their generals
are as ruffianly as the men are debased. One
Goneral Steinwehr has signalized himself by ar
resting five prominent citizens r.f tho county of
Page, to be hanged in case any of his maraud
ing soldiery should be killed by tho brave guer
rilla bands who are Eeekipg to drive tho invader
from their own soil! It happens, singularly
enough, that this very county of PJgo gave the
largest vote, in proportion to its number of vo
ters, against the Know-nothing party, of all the
counties in the State, and now it has its reward
in the ferocity of a German general who, for a
time, wields over it military sway. The citizens
arrested by Steinwehr have beea receatiy set at
liberty, but with the threat that should any of
his troops bo cut eff by the guerrillas, a like
number of unoffending citizsns will be taken by
him and executed. Such cases as this call
loudly for a resort to the lex talionis as a part of
our policy iu carrying on the war.
Tho approaching session of Congress is looked
forward to with great interest, as tho message of
tho President will doubtless indicate very clearly
whether tho war is to be made aggressive on our
part, and the people's Representatives, coming
directly from tho constituent body, will speek
out tho wish of the several States of the Con
federacy on this poiuf. Tbe Houses will meet

Another series of such victories as those gained

that lately made in the treason case of the
Gordons in Boston, would have secured for the
maker of it lodgings in Fort Warren. Mr. Sen
not, who uttered this speech, was once in high
favor with tho abolitionists. He came to. Rich
mond as thoir paid attorney to advocate the
cause of John Brown before the Legislature of
Virginia, was respectfully heard at tbe bar of
the Senate, and returned to get hb fee. But he
had tha boldness, after reaching Boetoa, to pub
lish a card declaring that tbe utmost freedom of
speech was tolerated in Virginia, tbe defamers
of the State to the contrary notwithstanding,
and that ha had been treated with a courtesy
which he should not forget, and this lowered
Mr. Ssnnot very much in the opinion of the
" friends ef freedom." His speech in the Gordsn
case is significant of a growing discontent with
the war at the North. Let us bo true to our
selves, let us relax no efforts in our struggle for

' fIt is reported at Vicksburg that tho Fodt-
rale have commenced moving their stores from
moving off his entire force from that charming
aud most eligible position at Berkoley, which
tho correspondents of the Northern press thought
so capital a point d'appui, and where tho Rev.
Dr. Francis Vinton declared he was nearer to
Richmond than he had b:en at any previous
time. The sans of July have done their work
with his troops. Aguo and fevor, billions and
typhoid and all varieties of febrile complaints,
except Yellow Jack, havo prevailed among them
to an alarming extent, and evon the government
at Washington, that soulless and meicilees body
of tyrants, has become frightened at the disap
pearance of McClellan's thousands. L'nceln
might woll say that he could not account for tho
estonishintr fallintr off in tho numbers under
the young Napoleon's command. Sj that Mc-
Clollau has determined upon another " change
in his base lino " At least such is believed to
be the fact in Richmond.
Already a large "number of trafisporta hava
gone down James river, and more are reported
daily as on their way. Their destination is
doubtless Fredericksburg, where they will rein
force Gen Pope. In a fow'days McClellan will
probably go to ta"ke the command of tho entire
tion with the rest of their State, shut out from
the sympathies of their brethern and kindred,
and subjic'ed to every refinement of insult aad
annoyanco that the ingenuity of their persecu
tors can contrive, maintain their loyalty to the
Confederals causo with the mist admirable resolution.
Wo hear, by way of Washington, D. C, that
tho yellow fever has broken out ia Norfolk, ' If
this, bo true, tho imagination shrinks .from con
sidering what must ere long bo tho fate of its
doomed inhabitants. In 1865 tho course of this
fearful epidemh; there was protracted through a
greator period of time and attended with scenes
of more appalling horrer than any previous
prevalence of tho disease on this continent. Tho
seeds of tho malady wero then so deeply sown'
in the soil that wo ean well imagine that any
predisposing causo would bring it forth cgain
in all its fatal virulence, and such a cause msy
have been afforded ia the presence of Barnsido's
soldiery, not remarkable for the cleanliness of
their habits, and particularly liable to Southern
climato diseases. Admitting the truth of this
Washington statement, wo can also readily un
derstand why McClellan should desire to re-
body ia person, aud make his third attempt to ' movo his army from tho Jamos river, sluco it is
Richmond, August 1, 16G2,
Last night our citizaus were awakened from
sleep by the noise of a very heavy cannonade.
Sach soundj have not been heard for just one
month in this city, and occurriug, as they did,
at midnight, when nothing of the kind wag ex
pected, proved somawhat startling. Boom,
boom; one, two, three, four; 'twas in vain to at
tempt to count them, so rapid aud continuous
were tho reports which were kept up without in
termission for an hour aad a ha'f. This morn
ing, as you may suppose, rumor ran wild
through tho streets as to the cause of the firing.
One said tha gunboats had made a night attack
upon Drawry's "Bluff, another that the enemy
hid engaged our forces at Malvern Hill, and yet
another that Jackson and Pope were in deadly
encouater iu the darkness some twenty miles
norfh of the city. It turns out to have bean an
exceedingly lively, and I hope deadly, bombard
ment of th'o Yankee camp at Berkeley and the
flotilla of transports and gunboats in the river, by
the Rev. Gan. Wm. N- Pandleton; after a very
orthodox fashion indeed.' The Rev. general,
having ascertained with something of aeouracy
the location of tho camp aud the fleet, moved
down yesterday from Petersburg to Coggin's
Point, about tea or twelve miles below City
Point, on Jamas river, immediately opposite the
Berkeley wharf, and just below Harrison's bar.
with 45 pieces of artillery, which he brought into
position for service at long and short range upon
the Yaukees, and opened upon them in their fan
cied security "between two days."
Tho enemy, though doubtless astonished some
what at this unlooked-for manifestation
" rebel" audacity, made haste to reply, and in a
short time their mortar vessels began to throw
shells with tremendous wrath in the direction of
our battories. The fire was furious while
lasted, and the scene is said to have presented
lurid mag.ificenca of ilsown, a3'tha sheat3 of
flimo momentarily lit up tho flowing rivor and
tho fin? steamers on its bosom, or spurted from
tho dark wood on t'-e shore, where, in an in
stant, all was blacknes3 again. Thirty rouads
of ammunition were discharged by each piece of
Gen. Peadleton'd command, to which the Yan
kees responded for a portion of tlu time, blaze
for blaze. The loss on our side, as reported,
was one man killed and twelve wounded total
13 and this was occasioned eatirely by the
bursting of one of our own pieces. The damage
done" to the enemy is altocether unknown. A
great crushing was heard in tho river, from time
to time, but whether this was occasioned by our
artillery or by the collisioa of vessels ia their
hasto to get out of tho way, could not bo ascer
tained. Yesterday, as far as tho eye could reach,
tho river wa3 filled with transports, steamers,
rnnboats. turrs. etc.. etc. This moraine: not a

That some of them sufferred considerably, there
can be littlo doubt, nor is it less cortain that
McClellan's army will be subjected to great in
convenience by this sudden disappearance of
their supplios, for they rely wholly oa their
transports for their daily provisions. Tiiero is
of course, a strsng desire to hoar officially from
Gen. Pendleton, concerning his adventure,
which has so greatly annoyed the enemy.
An amusing illustration of tho manaer in
which tho Yankeo government is swindled by
its contractors nas been aff jrded in the bombard
ment of Vicksburg. Tho officers of the ram
Arkansas have sent to the Secretary of tho Navy
handfuls of glass marbles, such as the boys call
" alleya " or allf y-taws," which were thrown
out from tho lanicee shells upon tho deck of
that vessel, and which can be picked up, doubt
less, anywhere in thestreotsof tho city. The
contractor hod bargained to supply shalls loaded
