The origin of the following lines may be traced to tbe fact, that in 1833 the author, thou qarte s youth, addressed some ttanaas to the American flag, then tUdolfeed ensign of a free sad happy people.

Grant: Your ditpatch is received teMiBtr me to follow the rebels. This mornine Price made a firee and deter mined attack on our right. Van Dora and Lovtl on our left. Tbe contest lasted uot haifpasi eleven o'clock, and was very deadly to the ene my, i. aey arove m our center som of them penetrate to tbo Corinth House. Hamilton, whoeo left was on tbe main line of their attack, maintained hie ground in ail bat one spot. and making an advance, secured the cot. to ; with two first rate regiments, Colon 1 Sullivan gave time to briug batteries into aetton, and saved the day on that side Van Dora and Lovell made a most determined attack on the extreme right, en tbe Chewalla road ; they were led to the attack through the abattis two of them reached tbe diicb, th ftber two stopped not fifty paces from it All that grape and cannister could do was tried, but when it reach' d this point a charge was ordered, when it became a race between tbe 27th Ohio and the 11th Missouri. This was too much for the staggered cokunns many ft 11 down and held np tbeir bands for mercy. They are badly beaten on both fronts lelt their dead and wtunded on the field, and are in full retreat t Our loss, though severe, especially in officers, is nothing like that of the enemy Brigadier General Hacklemaa fell bravely fighting at tho head of his brigade yesterday, shot through the jugular vein. Colonels Jurby, Smith, Gilbert imd Mower wounded, not mortally; General Oglesby dangerously. The number killed I cannot tell.

SECOKD DISPATCH. Special Dispatch to the Chicago Timet. Cairo, October 5 The battle on Saturday at Corinth was one of the most severe of the war. Price attacked our right, and Van Dora and Lovell our left. They were .sure of suece&s' and fought desperately. When they crossed Hatchie they burned tbe bridge, not expecting to need it to make good their retreat. At one time our center was pierced, and the rebels penetrated aa Jar aa tbe Gonnth House, in nearly the ceuter of tho to n. They were driven out at the point of the bayonet. Van Dorn pushed his way through the abattis on the left, and reached tbe ditch in the lace of a storm of grape and canister. The !7th Ohio and 11th Missouri then made a charge, and his column gave way. The rebels were com pletely routed. The number lost is not knows, but it is very great. Our loss is heavy, partic ularly among officers. We have taken between TOO and 1000 prisoners', not including wounded. Another dispatch to the associated press of the 2orth, dated Cairo, October 5th Sunday says: The Mobile and Ohio railroad is not seriously iniured. The telegraph is repaired to Corinth. General Hurlbart marched on Sat irday to the south sHe of Hatchie river with a largo force, thu cuttinsr ofi Puce's, retreat. Bjsecrans moved early this morning to renew tbe attack, and cannonading has been heard all day in tbe direction of tbeir forces. Pried is jn the forks of Hatehie rirer, and between Hurlburt and Jwse- erans. E?

From the Atlanta Confederacy, Otlcbsr ., Wehavejaet finished examining a package of fiftoea hundred dollars all in hundred dol tarn bills counterfeits of tbo Confederate notes Hoyer & Ludwig plates. They are not tbo same that was put afloat some time ago. Theeo bills had a number of striking points of difference, and were easily detected by the desc iption. The new counterfeits is far inoro accurate aiid difficult to detect ud is very dangerous. The previous one was a Better engraving than tbo genuine and on better paper; this is the same quality of paper, and tha engraving appears m exactly like it every way mat tna amjrenoe.w only discovered by a careful comparison, and by a nerson wbo is used to nanaimg ana no tioinrr it. These fifteen bills were sent to Mr. J. T. Por ter, a highly respectable commission merchant in tnii cy, oya. nonse in iuoonu, whu u paun- ase of FOtme four or nve thousand dollars, no slid not Notice tbeir being counterfeits, nor sus pect tbeir genuineness, till tiiey were condemned at tbe bauc. Tbe previous counterfeits were not tbe same size of the genuine, and could be det cted by measurement, as we described ; but these new base issued are so nearly tbe same size that measurement cannot be applied as a test. There are, however, several points about them, which a earuiul observer can detect. First, On tbo left band end ot tbo bills is a sailor standing up ; and above bis head is & shield on which the following words are in scribed : " Receivable in payment of all dues except export dues." In the genuine the lotver point of tins-shield is about the 10 lu of an inch afore the sailor's hat. In the counterfeit ihu point of the shield is imptrfect; thd point is not made. If perfect, it wuuld come down lower than tbe top of tho bat. In the genuine tbe point is nearly over tbe center ot the sailor's head a little to the Ieff; in the counterfeit, the point of the shield (if it had the point) would be over the left hand side of the sailor's hat brim, or near wbero.the brim joins the crown of the bat, lms d' fect in tbe point ot the shield, and its being placed further fo the left of the sailor's bead, and extending lower down ; and not directly abotc the head as in the genuine, is tbe most prominent mark ot distinction. lhe wagon wheel this time has the proper number or spokes and thy are dim and dark like the genuine only a little jore s,o not light and hnely executed, use tbe lurmer ounterteit. The mule attached to the cotton press is also dim, and more indistinct than the former coun terfeit, and the harness cannot be seen, but he is not quite so much blurred aa tho genuine. In the genuine the left baud biiid wheel of the waeo'i br.s the spokes cantering to the hub, at the center of the tcagon bed or body. In the counterfeit the bub appears to be lihind the bed and out of fight iha point where tho spokes converge at th hub or axle, being concealed from tbe view by the bed of the wagon. - Tbe signatures are a quick test to tboso who know aKi have the run ot all ot them; but only bankers, or men who handle money largely, can make this a test. We may say, however, that nearly all of them appear to te forgeries at once, to a practiced eye. They are' cramped and bear evidence of being slowly written, in order tbe better to imitate tbo genuine. They are in a heavier hand and blacker ink. A man skilled in such matters can see at once that they are written by an effort, and not by-a free, easy, natural band. We have seen only one counterfeit fifty, though several of tbem have been detected in ibis city. They are also a superior imitation of tne genuine co perfect are they that we are un able to discover any striking points or "dissimi larity none that we can describe which tbe common reader can understand, save perhaps, oio. The bill before us ia signed "A. W Gray, for Treasurer" The word "for" is in r-mall common italics, and "Treasurer" is in small capitals; thus ,lfer TREASUKBR." In the counterfeit, the hair liue on which the sig nature is written, passes across the in the word "Jof and tcuches the tops of the letters 'or." lu the genuine tbe word "for'' ia Mow tbe liue on wb:ch the signature is written It crosses tbe upper portion of tbe but does not touch the "or" being above them. This is the only distinction we are able to describe that we think can be comprehended by readers gen erally The mailet b made blck, th s ilor a di--ht-veled biir;is smoothed down, tbehamle m tbo iron box is right, and the woman's head is iu tbe right place. All tho points of difference are remedied, so that only an experienced person can detect thm by their general appearance. Now what ara the people to do? We advise 'hem to refuse every 20, 50 and 100 of tbe Hoyer & Ludwig plates. The government has called for tbem Let tbem be sent in and no more citculated. Much credit ia due to CoL W. W. Clayton, of the Georgia railroad bank agency, for detecting the rountoifeits of the treasury notes. He was the first to detect the former counterfeits and also the first to detect these. The country owes him a debt of gratitude for his skill and vigilance in this matter. Eteiiulating the Conjugal Hanibo. Itelntionn of The following police order has been issued by General Saxton, Federal military governor of South Carolina : Headquarters, Beaufort, S. C, Aug. 22. I. In tbe hope of correcting a wide-spread and deplorable evil, the following regulations are announced : 1st. Anv ne?ro claiming to have or charged with having more than one wife is required to couhne himself to, and need be. support that one to wbotn be has been lawfully married. If no each marriage has ever been celebrated, be wilt select that one of his so-called wives who is tbe mother of his children, if any he have ; and, after a marriage service duly performed by some minister of the Gospel, take her to himself as bis own sole lawful wife. 2d.- Hereafter, any ol the colored people wish ing to be united in holy wedlock will apply to Rev. Mr. French, chaplain United States army, or other minister, who will keep a register of marriages and furnish the parties with a .mar riage certificate duly authenticated. Jsl. All negroes, male or lomale, nereaiier living iu a 6tato of concubinage, or found un faitbtul to their marriage vows, will be liable to arrest and imprisonment. II. There being on the plantations more or lei s persons unablo to support themselves, and having no neat relative to whom tbe duty can be assigned of. providing for tbeir wants, a charita ble fund will be established on each plantation, by deducting from tbe amount due for labor thereon euch per centage as may be found upon trial, sufficient for the purpose Tbe fund thus created will be placed in ine hands of tbo superintendent, to be expended by him for tbe beneht ot the helpless and tneudless, in .providing them with suitable food and cloth ing, either accoiding to the directions 01 tue sur geons in attendance, or in obedience to thu sug gestions of his own common sense and experi ence. A proper account of the expenditures under this bead will be furnished monthly to the assistant quartermaster at these headquarters. Ill This order will be read by the superin tendents to the negroes on tbe plantation, and care taken to explain its provisions so that they may be fully understood as designed to secure and regulate tha performance of duties which are enjoined by the plainest dictates 01 a mere worldly experience aa well as by the sublimer teachings ot a living Curistianity. By order ot Brig -Gen. Saxton, Commanding. Another Counterfeit. Tho Augusta (Ga ) Chronicle notictd a new counterfeit bill of the green colored issue of September 2d. The engraving of tbe counterfeit is inferior to the genuine the portrait of Mr. Memminger in the center being badly done. All the genuine are latteted Hin two place the counterfeit has the J once. Tha words "For Treasurer," following the signature in the genuine, are left out in the counterfeit. Tbere in the circle, an the left baud of the genuine, are omitted in tbe spuri ous, and wherever they appear in the latter, are coatser than in the genuine. Tbe engravers name dof not sppear on the counterfeit. There are many other po juts, of difference, but tbe above are sufficient to put the community on tbeir guard. 13 Tha governor of New York has appointed tha 27 th proximo as s day of thanksgiving and pruysr. .The Campaign ia itlarrlnml.

A brkf and connected narnirhre'of evetiis which have Miceeeded since tbe-hwt battle of Manassas, may prove interesting to your readers. Our victory there detefmioed the policy of an immediate movement toward Maryland. The march was made by Leesburg, in Loudoiin, and. the passage of the Potomac effected near that place, without oppol ion or binderauce.

The reception, of our army was not enthusiastic were was no outward sign no noisy demonstration of welcome but there was deep feeling in many a Maryland bosom, which will bear its fruit horeafier. On the" whole, the conduct of our friends there, and the prudence they exhibited, is worthy of commendation Active measures were taken to .commence th organization of troops and, under the active influence of such men as Lowe aud Johnson, we shall find things go bravely on. When the army left Frederick an advance into Pennsylvania was by some supposed to bo intended, but the force was divided into several columns, for the purpose of investing Hnrper's Ferry, figuring the valuable stores collected there, aud capturing a considerable force known to be at that place. General D. II Hill and Lengstreet continued their ronw to Hagerstown, Uenerai Walker crossed at Point ot liocks, to occupy .Loudon flights; General MeLaws and Anderson proceeded toward tho Maryland H-ghts ; and Generals Jackson, Lwton and A P.

Atier their fitjbtnear Boones'koroDrli, Generals Hill and Longstreet fell back to a desirable position near bharpsourg, Maryland, three miles from ahep berdstown, a n urkhing village, twelve miles above Harper's Ferry on tbe Potomac, whither the enemy followed. After the surrender of tbe Ferry was ( ffjeted, General Jackson hastened up the river to join their forces, as it was known that the Federal army w3 in their pursuit. He arrived at 'he grouud assigned him on Tuesday evening, and took poeitidn on the left -wing of our army, ot wtucu the center was occupied bv General D H Hill, and the rieht bv General Longstreet rb b-Id ocwmpied by our armv was tho hitb rolling ground lying between bharnsburcr and Antietam liver; the fjre-s were drawn up in creh cent form.

H Hill ud his brave columns, who, borne down upon by the weight of greatly superior num bers, Btill held his own to the battle's close. On our right wing tbe fight was truly desperate Tho enemy attempted to turn the flank in order to cut our army off from tbe only practicable ford of the Potomac near Shepherdstown. The conflict was doubtful and anxiety was intense. Our troops were wearing out, reduced in nam-' bers, the enemy still pressed upon them in heavier numbers and fought furiuusly. At this most perilous and critical point of time, Gen A. Pi Hill, with bis division from Htrper's Fer ry, came up to General Lougstreet's relief His troops entered tbo field at three o'clock, and by the much needed aid decided the fate of tbe doy. That night our troop's retained the ground occupied at morning, and additionally wht Jackson aud McLtws b.d won upon the left This may be considered tbe most obstinate and thoroughly fought battle of the war Fought upon equal ground, fought through so long a time, our troops never have sustained themselves more successfully. The enemy's forco was prob ably oue hundred thousand strong, actually en gaged, while ours did not exceed forty thousand Iu the summary our loss in killed, (very few,) wounded and missing reaches six or eight thou sand; those who had the best opportunity to judge, estimate tho enemy's at five times as great lheir loss in killed was very heavy in deed, our men greatly excels ttem as marks men, and shot with deliberate aim. -But as is usually the case, we lost heavily in officers, killed and wounded. Generals Stark and Branch were killed, Lawion, Espley, Wright and others were wounded. While too much praise cannot bo bestowed on our officers generally for tbeir good conduct in this great battle, the South will delight to do the utmost honor to our great commander-in-chief, to whoso genius and sagacity We owo the main success. During this campaign he has been at all times and everywhere present to control and direct tho counsels of his subordi nates, who have so happily carried out his judi oious aud well conceived plans. It is no wonder that Scott so lamented the loss of Lee to tho Federal cause. Fortunate indeed an army with such a chief and such a co-adjutor! The day succeeding the battle of Sharpsburg foand our troops on the alert and ready to. renew the ac tion, but the onemy did not " ccme to timo." In the evening our troops and trains were gotten ready and crossed over tbe ford to Sherpnerdst town, under cover 6f night, without casualty or loss, or hinderance. The next morning the ene my's cannon opened upon us from tbe Mary land shore, replied to by our batteries, and this was continued for a large part of the day. But on the succeeding morning of Friday furious cannonading heralded tbe. appearance of several brigades, belonging to Porter's fine division, (probably the best in the Federal army,) npon ti e Marylaud shore, with evident de-rtgn to at tempt a passage. They marched without inter ruption a mile or two, and were suddenly fallen upon by General A P. Hill's division, and ulti mately repulsed with very heavy loss ou their, and trifling loes en our side.

The TTrsro Question in the Ariay. The Federal officers and soldiers are begin ning to express their opinions on the negro policy of Lincoln. Here is one from the ranks at Jackson, Tennessee, written to the Chicago Times : There has not been a very free expression of opinion among tbe officers of the army on the President's recent emancipation proclamation On the other hand, there seems to be a studied avoidance or trie question. The only excuse that I have heard uttered was by au officer of moderate R-'pnblican tendencies, wbo -aid the presence of a United States array at any point ror any lengm ot time would practically accom plish emancipation, whatever might be the policy of the government, and instanced tbe condition ot things about us as a proof of tbe fact Th proclamation could only be made opportune by the presence of the army, and would, therefore, have practical bearing upon the sutject The secessionists, however, are pleased with tbe proclamation Tocy affect to believe that it will so stimulate the rebels as to make them in vincible, and what has heretofore been doubtful they pretepd to regard as certain. In tbe meantime all parties now look anxiously to tbe coming elections as the Hst resort to determine tne cnuracier or mis war. 11 the people in dorse and sustain that proclamation, then it is war simply over the nigger, without regard to any consideration-! of Constitution or laws, and with little thought aa to what will be tbe condi tion of tbe government or country after the sie ger shall have been annihilated. The poor, in nocent being is to be annihilated, if the war is to 'be an abolition war, and both sides will be ex hausted in tbe effort. Mark my words, it the nigger is what our army is after, as- it advances the poor nigger will be delivered from their grasp, if by no other means, by a pass that will take bim beyond tho jurisdiction of human proclamations. As terrible as ibis will be, yet, as a choice of evils with the people of tbe South, tbe presence of the negro as a free race or tbeir destruction, I believe they will not hesitate in their choice under the present slate of feeling among them. Reception of the stebel Commissioner ma son 111 CaltMgOW. Unable to effect any of his proposed meas ures with Parliament or with tho government direct, Mr. Mason, the Southern commissioner, has started on a tour through the kingdom, with tho evident hope of making capital on which t trade at the next session, if nut before. His first appearance in bis new character has been at Glasgow, whore, as a private letter iufbrin me, bo was, on Tuesday last, tho guest ot a distinguished citiz-n, and met a company in vited especially to do him honor. The lord provost and one of the members of Parliament stood aloof from motives of policy, but the lat ter invited him to dine the next day. A meeting ot tbe chamber of commerce was also called, as one of lhe results of tha occasion, with tbe avowed purpose of petitioning the gov ernment to iecogniz-j tha Southern Confederacy I learn that Mr. Mason's reception was of the most llatterinrr character, and that he has. so far as Glasgow is concerned, produced an im pression very favorable to biti cause, thua ac complishing tbe object of his mission.. I learn, also, that the very parties who are now most ac tive in this movement, are tbe very ones who beaded the deputation to Mrs. Harriet Btecher Stowe, and also liouized Fred D.iuglasa, when those personages respectively visite3 Glasgow They comprise the leading abolitionists in thai city, and we thus witness the strange spec acle of p-ople of that class glorifying y.tbe author of the fugitive slave law, and oco otbe firmest supporters of the American institution that has hitherto received their bitterest denunciation London Cor.

On the morning ot a recent battle near Har per's Ferry, after a sermon by one of his chap lains, Stonewall Jackson, who, by the way, is an elder in the Presbyterian Church, adminis tered the sacrament to the Churea members' in his army. He invited all Christians, to partici pate in this ceremony. A Baptist, the straight- est of bis sect, thoroughly imbued with tho idea Of close communion, was seen to hesitate ; but the occasion, and tbe man who presided, over came his scruples, and thus it bas happened that tho orosnect of a fi?ht and the eloquence of Jackson, made a Baptist forget that baptism Is tho deor into the Uhurcn. in aii-jacKsons army an oath is rarely uttered. .A religious en thusiasm pervades it, wmcn mares every man a hero. Conscieqs of tho justico o.onr cause and imbnad with the strongest convictions of patri otism, bis men are irresistible. In this incident, we have an explanation of General Jackson's in vincibility, and wa are thus enabled to understand why his men arc all heroes ; aud-why they en dure without a murmur tbe gerereat banisiiips to which any troops have been gnbjaoted during the war.

Mr. Hill said ho considered the proclamation of the Prid nt f the United States as a mere brutum fulmen of no practical effect, and he l-mhtod whether it was necessary to notico it nt all. Mr. Hill, from the same committee, presented the following joint resolution in relation to the future prosecution of war within the United States in connection with the other reports : insulted aud oppressed by a long train ot evils, aud meoaeed by future peril, under the government of the United States, the separate sovereignties of the States, constituting tbe Con federate States of America, dissolved the politi cal connection existing between themselves and the other sovereignties composing the United States, and organized a distinct Confederation. Upon its formation a war most foul and unnatu ral was inaugurated for its destruction by the government from which wo had separated, and upon the pretext that the government organised and thus created wag not the choice and offering of the people inhabiting said States; bat was a despotism erected by daring and ambitious dem agogues by whom tha voice of tbe mass of our population was silenced, and their efforts to preserve the Federal Union paralyzed aud sup pressed.

Mr. Clark offered tbe following in the same connection : Whereas, A lontr series of atrocities, ntterlv subversive of the principles of civilized war fare, have recently culminated in a nroclairation of Preiident Lincoln, declaring that all skves in the Confederate States shall be emancipated and forever free from and after tbe 1st dayof Janu ary next; and whereas, it is th avowed asd findish purpose of the government of the United Sues, by this proclamation, vain and futile though it be, to add to the severities and suffer ings of the war the unspeakable horrors of a ser vile insurrection, and the brutal massacre of tbe whole people of the-Confederate States without regard to age or sex ; and whereas, tbe past ef forts of our government to iufitee iota oar ene mies a sense of jastiee, decency asd humanity, have proved utterly inefficacious, and are likely to do so in the future : Now, therefore, ne f resolved fry the Senate and House of Rrrrt- setiUUtm tae CoftnUraU Statts of Amtnca, 1 at it is the duty ot the governmeut and neo- ple to reconiz-s the troverumnt of tbe United States and such of the people therein as adherer te cft government, and coaBteBanee tbe bratal policy thereof, in tbe chagaeter in which tbev they have elected to assume that of a savagi, relentless and barbarous foe ; and that in the ta tore conduct of this war it Is the duty of tbe government of tbe Con-federate Suites neither to ask quarter for its sol-liers nor extend it to tha enemy, until an awaaened or corrected seas or decency and humanity, or tbe aline of retalia tion shall have impelled our enemies to adcat or practice the uage of war, whieit prevail arBwas; Christian and civilized natious.
