?ihia, Oct 2i>, I8t>l.?Hon James A. Seddon. Sec
retary of War: Gen. Hampton followed the
enemy on his withdrawal trom Rowanty creek,
driving his rear guard across and pursuing the
cavalry behind the lines or their infantry. Sev
eral hundred prisoners were captured, and the
enemy burned some of their caissons and am
bulances. Oor lines are re-established.
R. E. Lkb, General.
?*" *' The Battle of Thursday.
[From the Richmond Dispatch, Oct.31.]
In the battle cf Thursday last our infantry
loss in killed and wounded will not exceed
one hundred and fi/ty. In prisoners we lost
between three and four hundred. In the
cavalry onr loss was not very severe, as Gen.
Hampton's main attack waa made upon the
Federal Tear. General Hampton, however,
lost one son killed and another severely
Woucded
Immediately af'er the cessation of hostilities
on Thursday night, tlie enemy commenced to
withdraw histories in the direction of his for
titrations on the Yanghan and Squirrel Level
roads, and by 2 o'clock on Friday morning had
entirely disappeared from the plank road, with
the exception of a small force left there to keep
up an appearance of his presence in onr front.
As soon as this was discovered, a brigade of
onr troops was ordei ed to advance and feel the
enemy's position, and, meeting with such slight
resistance, they pushed forward only to ascer
tain that the enemv had gone. Some two hun
dred and fifty additional prisoners were taken
here.
The enemy has fallen back to his original
position, and we have re-established our for
mer lines.
About dark in Thursday night, while the
fighting was progressing on our right, a small
force of the enemy made a bold dash on our
works on the left, and sncceeded in captur
ing a portion of them. They also gained pos
sess on of one piece of artillerv, and took
prisoners Lieutenant Colonel Harrison and
some twenty or thirty meu of the 4?>th Virginia
regiment.
Hood Believed to be in Tennessee.
[From the Richmond Examiner, Oct- 31]
The war has been transferred from (Teorgf
to Alabama. The Yankees themselves confess
this. They say Sherman, ou the *.>rth, was at
Gaylesville, chasing Hood, who was in full
retreat to Gadsden.
We may easily detect the absnrdity of this
dispatch, when we look on the map and see
that Gaylesville is in the northern part of
Cherokee county, on the Chatooga, an affluent
of the < r ?a, and that Gadsden is in the south
western part of the same county, just where
the raifrptfd from Jacksonville to Gunter's
Landing, on the Tennessee river, crosses the
Coo?a. A few days ago the Southern papers
stated that Beauregard was at Jacksonville
witn a considerable body of reinforcements for
Hood. The two forces doubtless effected a
junction four or five days ago, and as Gunter's
Landing is only some thirty miles from Jack
sonville it is more than probable that Hood and
Beauregard are now in Tennessee.
We doubt whether Sherman's whole army,
or any large part of It, is at Gaylesville. It is
much more likely that the main body is moving
down the Tennessee river in transports as rap
idly as rbey can be steamed, and that only a
corps of observation, rmmuting principally of
cavalry, is kept in Hood's rear.
Mr. Belmont's Bets.
(From the New York Times.]
In the Washington correspondence of the
Herald, a few days since, it was stated that
11 r. Belmont was ready and anxious to bet
on the result of the election, and t&ftt bis
confidence on the subject excited considerable
surprise.
in response to this notice we published on
Monday the following note, saying that itcame
from a pf-'rfectly responsible quarter.
To ;>ic Editor of the New York Times;
1 notice the' Washington correspondent of
the Herald says, in its last Sunday's issue, that
Mr. Belmont is ready to bet any amount on
McClellan's election.
I have only to say that within a short time
fy,00o to *1,two was ottered him that Lincoln
would be elected. This he declined, and said
be required three to one, thus not showing
much confidence in the success of his friend
and nominee.
If Mr. Belmont has changed his views, the
het of two to ow is still op'n f<rr him to accept.
Union.
In reply to this we have received the lol
loping
To the Editor of the New York Times . ?Sir : A
correspondent in your paper of to-day seems
anxious to have a bet on the coming Presi
dential flection.
I offer the following: I will bet the sum of
ten thousand dollars, (910,000,) the money to be
deposited in the New York Trust Company,
that it Mr. Lincoln should be elected, we will
be in a state of war during the term of his ad
ministration, or will be lorced into a disgrace
ful peace, with separation; and the same
ami unt, to be similarly deposited, that if Gen.
McClellan is elected. the Union will be restored
Within his term of oitice.
Yours, very respectfully,
Ai gu*t Uelmont.
It seems lrom this that Mr. Belmont is not at
all anxious tobet on theresultof tht election, even
wheu be can have odds of two to one In his fa
vor. As to the bet which he is willing to take,
we submit it to public consideration. The
main point established by his letter, is, tha*. he
bas no faith whatever in McClellan s election.

What a pity that a yeuna man, tbe bona of hU

of nature and indulging in a certain secret habit.
Such parsons must, before contemplating

necessary requisites to promote connubial bappl

life becomes a weary pilgrimage; the nrespact
hourly darkens to the view: the mind become*
shadowed with despair and filled with the melan
choly reflections that tbe happiness of another If
blighted with our own.

of shame or dread of discovery deters h< m from ap
plying to those who, from education and respecta
bility can alone befriend him. He falls Into tkg
hands of ignorant and designing pretenders, who,
incapable of curing, filch his pecaniary sobstanoc,
keep bim trilling month after mouth, or as long al
the smallest fee can be obtained, and in leapalr
leave him with ruined health to sign over his gall
ing disappointment; or, by the use of that deadly
poison, Mercery, hasten the constitutional eymp
toms of this terrible disease, such as Affections of
the Head, Throat, Nose. Skin, etc., progressing
with frightful rapidity until death puts an end to
his dreadful sufferings by sending him to that un
discovered country from if hose bourne no traveler
