In addition to this dispatch front Gen. Le*

These reports Mate that our forces captured

On* of the most atrocious incidents of the
whole war was yesterday related to us by a
gentleman of this city, who obtained th* facts
from Capt. J a*. G. Whit*, of King William
county, who vouches for the accuracy of the
statement.' Borne days ago, when the Yan
kee* mad* their raid to Aylctt's, they visited
the place of Dr. Gregg, living in th* neighbor
hood, and took from their comfortable home*
forty three negroes, who were harried on" to
York river and placed on board a vessel bound
northward. Along with thee* negroes, as a
prisoner, was a gentleman named Lee,-a resi
dent and highly respectable citizen of King
William, who has since bsen released and al
lowed to return to his home, lie states that
when the vessel arrived in Chesapeake Bay
the small-pox made its appearance among th*
negroes, that disease having existed to some
extent among the same family before" they
, were dragged from their homes in King Wil.
liam. The Captain of the Yankee vessel and
his crew were greatly alarmed at the appear
ance of the disease on board, and very soon
determined to rid the vessel of the presence of
the negroes. Without attempting to make the
shore, and, not considering for an instant the
inhumanity of the cruel deed, the whole ne
gro cargo was thrown iuto the Bay, and every
one left to perish by drowning. Not one,
perhaps, escaped the cruel fit* visited upon
them by those who profess to be their earnest
frieuds aud warmest sympathizers.
There was nothing from Fredericksburg by
but evening's train except twelve Yankee
prisoners captured at Falmouth. They were
a motley set, including Irish, Dutch, and a
Chinaman. A gentleman who walked over
the course on the Stafford aide says there is
not a Yankee about the old camping ground-
A few worthiest tents are left standing, some
bayonets dropped about in the old camps, car
tridge boxes, "played out" uniforms, which
would be valuable to a paper mill, tin cups,
canteens with holes in them, a broken cannon
wheel, ice., show that the targe family which
has been occupying the premises have care
fully cleaned up everything valuable before
The armies at Tnllahoma and Murfreesboro'
are getting a little nearer still. Our cavalry
drove the Federals out of Ready ville to within
two miles of Murfreesboro', on the 4th inst—
It is positively ascertained that Roiecrant hat
sent from 15,000 to 25,000 men to Grant, and
his movements during the hut week indicate
a retrograde march towards Nashville. It is
said that his headquarters are in that city, and
that all his heavy artillery has been sent from
Murfreesboro' across the river to Edgefield,
about five miles from Nashville. If Roeeerant
hat not taken shelter in that city, he will
soon be starved ont, at the Cumberland river
is falling rapidly, and in a few days navigation
will be finished, thus leaving him only a rail
road line of communication by which to re
ceive hit supplies. This lint he knows from
experience can be rendered useless by Confed
erate cavalry raids, and he will hardly trust
it His forces have occupied Liberty—a small
town in DeKalb county, 38 miles northwest
of McMinnville, and on Bragg's right
From Vicksburg we have nothing reliable
The Western papers are, as a general thing, at
little particular about the reports they pub
lish as the Western news agents are about tbeir
telegrams. The Natchez Courier, of the 2d,
has several wild reports brought by a lady
who bad gotten through from Vicksburg. Ac
cording to her account, the Yankees bad made
their second attempt to escape by way of Va
oo river, but had been met and driven back
by Gen. Johnston. The same General bad
driven them back in another attempt at Sny
der's Bluff. She also states that tbe wagon
toad from Vicksburg to Jackson is clear and
the bridge over the Big Black all right. It it
positively asserted that the enemy are evacu
ating the whole line of the Memphis and
Charleston railroad. When Grant asked for
50,000 rt inforcements a few days ago, Hurl
but replied that he did not know where thsy
were to come from unless Memphis and tbe
railroad lines were evacuated. We presume
that movement has been decided on. So it np.

Vettela Captured or Burnt. —About three
weiki since, Capt. M Dak* and eighteen
citiieus of Mobil* determined oa makiiifl, a
"raid" excursion to the month of the Minis'
sippi, and toft the city. Nothing was heard of
them until the Uthinst., when a line propeller,
called the Boston, arrived alongside the Mo
bil* wharf with the Confederate Hag flying
over the United States ensign. The Tribune
gives the foliowiug account of ths daring ex
ploit :
After lying in wait, lite Mieawber, for
something to torn up, and lighting mosquitoes
in the swamp, on Tuesday eveuiug, the 9th
inst, they saw the Boston towing in the ship
Jenny Liud, with a load of ice, from Boston.
They boarded her, with their pistols drawn.
It was quite laugnable to see the consterna
tion of the abolitionists, many of them ex
claiming: "I told yon they were the d—d re
bels!" "Here we are boarded by the d—d
rebels," fee.
They cut the Boston from the ship, pat all
hands on board, hnd on Wednesday morning,
at 5 A.M., they saw the bark Lenox, Capt.
Cola, from N«w York, with an assorted cargo
of Yankee merchandise, making her way np
the river to New Orleans. 1 hey boarded her,
took the captaiu, passengers ana a part of the
crew olf, sent the others on shore, and then sat
fire to and burnt np the bark.
On Sunday they made chase after another
which tbey overhauled some 35 miles from
Pass a I'Outre. She proved to be the bark
Texana, Capt Wultf, also from New York,
with an assorted cargo of merchandise and a
quantity of arms. They boarded her, took the
captain, mate and some of the crew on board,
sent the balance on shore; helped themselves
to a couple of easesof line hats, and set fire to
and destroyed her, and then started for home,
running through tne fleet outside without be
ing molested by them. They brought in some
17 or 18 of the prisoners, including Captains
Cole and Wultf, who are well known in this
city as old traders.
In the Mississippi river the Confederates
were for some time within speaking distance
of the U. S man of war Portsmouth, 16 guns,
and about half an hour previous to" their cap
taring the Boston, a gunboat had passed np
within gun-shot of our men. The prize will
prove very valuable to the captors, and shows
what dariag can accomplish in the way of a
little private enterprise. What a howl will go
up in New York when they hear the news.
The Boetob was cheered all along our front as
she came in, with the Confederate flag over
the gridiron.
Rosecrars's Official Report of the j (
Batte or Murfrexesboro'.—The following j
statistical extract from Rotecrant'i report of 1
the battle of Murfreesboro' it taken from the
Journal of Commerce i
We moved on the enemy with the following *
forces: Infantry, 41,421; artillery, 2,233; car- 1
airy, 3,2%. Total, 46,940. i
Wafought the battle with the following: i

liosecrans then estimates our forces at 62,
--480—puts our loss down at 14,560, and claims j
to have whipped Bragg in evory tight of equal i
numbers on equal ground. ' f
He only failed of achieving a "crashing" i
victory by extending his right wing too far i
out They fired 2,000,000 rounds of musketry,
and estimate that one ball out of 145 hit a «
rebel. They fired 20,000 rounds of artillery, j
aud believe that they put one rebel out of tbe i
tight every 27th shot. This is the way they i
arrrive at our loss. Hit report concludes:
"On the whole, it is evident that we fought ta- i
perior numbers, on unknown ground, inflicting <
much more injury than we suffered I" |
Wheat Speculators.—The Milledgevill* '
(Ga) Recorder hai the following paragraph (
about wheat speculators in tbe Confederacy. <
There is no doubt that the large Hour holders '
will make a desperate effort to save themselves
from loss: i
Several of our exchanges notice the fact
that persons have been ottering ten dollars per i
bushels for the growing crop of wheat, with !
the design of keeping np the price of floor, to <
pre vent loss on the large stocks which have 1
been withheld from market in the hope of still i
higher prices. It Is stated that one firm hat <
1,500 barrels which cost $60 per barrel. If the i
price is brought down to $20, which we think
will be the ease when the abundant crop now i
ready for harvesting shall bo thrown upon the i
market, the loss on the single lot will be $60,
--000. To obtain a monopoly, to ai to control
prices as heretofore, these heartless specula
tors and extortioners are willing to risk a good
deal in order to save themselves, if possible.

la Urbanna, on th* tenth sid* of the Rap
pahannock, where KUaatrink't cavalry took
steam traasports for the opntaita shore of the
river, there were scenes avMadden th* heart
and cans* deeper regrets that war wat carry,
ing sorrow into every household. Oneciti
aen. Mr. Street, had twenty or thirty hoot*
and field servants to whom freedom may prove
a doubtful blessing. ll* had thrown wide
open hit door* to oar cavalry tenants, and had
extended hit hospitalities to them with no
limit but his meant and resources. He had a
grand daaghtor,an estimable young lady, with
an infant in her arms. H*r husband, a rebel
soldier at home on furlough, was secreted in
the forest, and she wat trexehlmgleet he should
be captured. She waaJUad soleourteous to

It became a military necessity to announce
to th* slaves that their destiny wat in their
own hands—to go at fro* people or remain at
property. Most of them chose the former lot,
and there was a sundering of the ties of affec
tion which had bound servants to the homo
hold in which they bad been lifetime members.
Tears expressed the grief of both mistress and
maid; and when an obi colored woman, 80
years advanced in her pilgrimage, resolved to
enter upon a new life of experimental free
dom, leaving the homo where the received
hind treatment and tender care, perhars to be
neglected and to suffer the ills of poverty and
want, in the agony of her grief the rebel sol
dier's youthful wife exclaimed, "Aunt Mary

At Middlesex Court House the cavalry boys
obtained some ancient documents—one dated
October 17, 1761, in the first year ot the reign
of George the Third, under the hug* seal of
the colony, in which "George the Third, by
the grace of God, of Great Britain, France
and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith,"
constituted Edmund Berkeley and others jus
ticeß of the peace in the county of Middlesex,
as witnessed by Francis Fauquier, Lieutenant
Governor en! Commander in Chief of tbe
colony and dominion of Virginia; another,
dated October 33,1674, being a bond to pay
four hundred pounds of *ood, sound, merchant
able tobacco, signed by Fitz John Randolph.
An aged woman in tear* at all times makes
one sad, aud when a venerable lady, who had
lost the hone which had carried her husband
to the grave, weepingly besought Cob K-l
--patrick to make an effort to procure its return
to her, a cloud of sadness passed over his face.
It was not the value of the horse, but the as
sociations with the memory of her husband,
that impelled her to make this request When
among the multitude of animals it became evi
dent that her horse could not be found, a sis
ter, with more firmness and less excitement,
almost sternly reproached her for ashing fa
vors of an enemy.
While riding along through Westmoreland
county a female was heard crying bitterly, at
though her lamentations were caused by deep
est grief. Approaching, we met a little girl,
some twelve years old, aud "in agony she
cried" because the soldiers had taken their
only horse. The mother was expressing both
sorrow and indignation, and giving utterance
to the sentiment that she did not believe a
Government wbioh permitted these things
could prosper. Every officer who witnessed
the grief of tbe daughter was moved to pity,
and all regretted the military necessity which
rendered It imperative to impress that par
ticular hort* into th* Union service.

Lincoln R an wisely getting into trouble with |
the Dutch, of whom his army it largely com-1
posed. The Dutch of St Louis held a meet !
ing on the 10th ult, and denounced the ahelv-1
tog of Sigel, Butler and Fremont, and demand. J
ed that the Administration restore them to ,
command* Those resolutions were presented
to Lincoln on Wednesday last, by Jas. Taus
tig, who wat deputed for that job by tbe
meeting. Mr. Taussig gives the following ac- (
count of hit interview with the gorilla:
The President after a careful and loud read
ing of tbe whole report of proceedings, saw I
J roper to enter into a conversation of two !
ours' duration, in the course of which most of
the topics embraced in the resolutions and other :
subjects were discussed.
As my share in the conversation is of sec
ondary importance, I propose to omit it entire
ly in this report, and, avoiding details, to com
smmßmte to yon the substance of noteworthy '.
remarks made by the President
1. The President said that it may be a
misfortune for the nation that he wai elect
ed President; bnt having been elected by
the people, he meant to be President, and
to perform hit duty according to his beet
understanding, if be bad to die for it —
No General will be removed, nor mil any
change in the. Cabinet It made to suit the view*
or wishes of any particular party faction or
set of men. General Ualleck is not guilty of
the charges made against bim, most of which
niße from misapprehension or ignorance of
those who prefer them.
2. The President said it was a mistake to
suppose that Generals John C. Fremont, B. F.
Bauer, and F. Siirel ar* "systematically kept
out of command,'' aa stated in the fourth reso
lution ; that, on the contrary, he fully appre
ciated the merits of the Generals named; that
by their own action they had placed themselves
in the positions which they occupied ; that he
was not only willing but anxious to place
them again in command as soon as he could
find spheres of action for them, without doing
Injustice to other*, but that at present he "had
more pegs than holes to put them in"
3. Aa to the want of unity, the President,
without admitting snob to be the ease, inti
mated that each member of the Cabinet was
responsible mainly for the manner of conduct
ing the affairs of his particular department ,
that there was no centralization of responsi
bility for the action of the Cabinet anywkete
except in the President himself.
4. The dissensions between Union men in
Missouri ar* do* solely to a faetieas spirit,
which is exceedingly reprehensible. The two
parties "ought to hay* their heads knocked
together" "Either would rather at* th* de
feat of their adversary than that of Jefferson
Davis." To titia spirit of faction is to be
ascribed the failure of the Lsgtalatur* to elect
Senator! and th* defeat of th* Mtawuri aid
bill in Congress, th* passage of which th*
President strongly desired
Th* President taid that th* Union men in
Missouri who ar* 1* favor of gradual emanci
pation represented his vtewi better than those
who ar* in favor of immediate emancipation.
In txpftntthwi of his views en this subject the
President said that la hR st**soco n* had fre
quently used as an lllestnatis* th* *s**of a

A matting was held ia Beecher't Church,
n New York, on the 12th met, to forward tbt
raising of a legion of 10,0tt) negroes for Fre
mont Th* committee which had been at a
previous meeting appointed to consult with
Lincoln-—the laid committee consisting of two
white men and two negioee—made a report ol
their interview as follows:
The President stated that the Government
would accept th* co-operation of the emanei-
Eated colored people as a military organisation.
It admitted the enthusiasm of the colored
people in th* cause, but nevertheless stats* the
difficulty of raising colored troops North and
Sjuth. The President stated that Gen. Fre
mont, being the second officer in rank in the
army, should have a department if he had a
Bommand; bat there was the difficulty. In this
the President foaud himself in the position ol
the English gentleman who had a rake for a ton,
whom he told to tako a wife; when the hope
ful replied, "Well, father, who** wife will I
take." The President took a map, pointing to
the colored parts representing the sections of
the rebel States largely peopled by colored
people. lie noticed that bordering on Vicks
burg in particular, remarking that he hoped for
go-operation from the negroes in that section
to take Vicktborg and to hold it lie had urged
upon many Genera's to take the work of raia '
iug an army of colored men; but he cjuld not
prevail on them, because they had atari on
their shoulder* He further informed the com
mittee that ha believed Fremont to be the
man to do this work and give it effect, on ac
count of hit peculiarities aud those of the col
ored people. lie assured them that he would
lo all in his power to forward the movement.
Rr. Chase was present during the interview,
but never spoke. Senator Sumner wat also
present, and stated that he believed the great

written by the hand of that man who organ

for that cnoi gtmfhi which all te* reared*

of no use to mediate earlier, ami that warfbf
that tort commonly take at Item that pattoi
to run themselves oat. » • « ir we really
with to form some reasonable angary at te th*
, length of this moual deetrnetion, we ought to
tarn to the civil wart still raging io Mexico, In
Central America, or those portions of South
America which have followed the example ef
the United States in an emphatic repudiation
of European precedent and authority. So we
think Mr. Roebuck hat only spoken with th*
language of hope when he suggests that the war
it ripe for British Intervention. It is possibl*.
indeed, that there are among the Federals many
who secretly wish for such an intervention;
there may be tome who wish for a war with
this country as an eeoape from the present dif
ficulty ; but no saoh private, withe* can eon
etitute a eatl for mediation, still lees for armed
interference. Mr. Roebuck expects that war
with the Federal side would give as cotton,
and would do at no more good, or harm, at
far as we are concerned, than we may very
reasonably doubt We will not latitat* to*
confidence of th* American ton* in their prog
nostications. Considering that w* anould
have to operate at the distance of several
thousand miles, that Ironsides are a novelty,
and that we do not know so much of the Am*
rioaa waters at they do themselves, we are
not so sure that we should raise the blockade
as speedily as Mr. Roebuck expects. This,
however, would not be the whole of our
work We should have to protect our ports,
our rivers, and our shipping, not only at home
and in North America, out all over the world.
If we once began such a war, our own expe
rience suggests that we should persist hi It a
long lime, even though beaten the first three
or four years. So, having regard to the want!
of call, the difficulty, the chance of defeat, and
the probable length of the enterprise, w*
should be veryeorry Indeed to throw our
selves into tills straggle.
f Perls (Kay *i) correspondence of London Fort]
Some fresh efforts are said to be nuking by
the Southern envoys at London and Park with
tLe view of obtaining the recognition of the
States of the Confederacy. As the French
Government took the lean in a peace policy,
Grhapa Meters. Slide!! and Mason have donbt
is more hope of making an impression at the
Tuilsriet than at the Court of St. James. Mr.
Dayton, the United Statet Minister, and the
parti* us of th* North, as far at I can learn, re
pudiate all idea of making peace «itA the
South. They say that the Govern
ment of Washington will assuredly ©oa
tioue the war; that ths resources of the
Noith must finally exhaust the South;
and that the United States Government can
uselesswere Re benevolent efforts to bring
about a suspension of hostilitiea The Ameri
can people are not like aay other people of the
globe» they have not taught themtelvt* to
obey any feeling or sentiment but that of their
own pactions. North and South alike have
never known defeat, and Americans hay*
been educated to believe that all they can de
sire they can accomplish. It is hopeless, I
fear, to pat any confidence in th* efforts of di
plomacy. If th* English Government war* to
make representations, I have no doubt that
Fiaaee would willinjtiy join. If England re
cognised the South, France would do the same.
France desires to harmonise her policy with
that of Great Britain. The Envoys of the
South say--"What amount of viotoriet oa oar
part are required before yon aoknoledg* us t"
The North exclaims— •If England and Prance
acknowledge the Month at an independent
Government and power, the United State* will
declare war, and the mercantile navy of Eng
land will suffer." On this side of the water
no one seems to discover a solution of this
difllcatty, with a most difficult people; and, I
fear, nothing can or will be dona.
[from the London Times, stay 83.J
If we would conceive the earnest longing
of the Northern people after their lost Union,
we must consider the outrageous indignities
to which they will submit from those who
promise to restore it. Although the Govern
ment of Mr. Lincoln confessedly has tbe re
spect of no body of men in the country; though
he bimeelf ta a person of neither ability nor
dignity; though some among his chief advisers
are known to have misbehaved themselves in n
manner which any other country would pun
iah by expulsion not only from office but also
from society; though the military commanders
are incapable, and tbe wur languishes, *od
the men desert through want of confidence In
their leaders, yet the majority of the North
shrinks so much from the prospect of • divided
Republic that it will allow people whom R
looks upon and talk* about as Imbeciles and
Jobbers and braggarts to commit any act of
tyranny under the pretence of the
Union. It does not believe in them; it would
be gl«d to get rid of them and repute* them
by better met; but they are in power; they
■tend as the reprejentauvea, however unwor
thy, of the United Stater; and. hoping against
hep*, th* people of the North obey them be
cause opposition might seem like an abandon
ment qi a cherished design. We do not think
thai in th* dayapf England's fiercest struggle
with the French Repablio th* Government ef
Pitt would hay* ventured on inch an act at
th* trial by court-martial of a private person
for making a speech rgainst the war, and re
commending his hearers to agitate constitu
