Movements of Grant in Mississippi. '
The Meridian Clarion, of Sunday morning last, gives some information as to the move ments of Grant, derived from a gentleman who, the editor says, seemed to possess accu rate information. "A column of the enemy, strength unknown, was within three or four, miles of Canton on Thursday evening. The ' object may be to destroy that place and forage on the country down to Jackson, destroying the railroad as they go. for the purpose of flanking Johnston. Jackson is twenty-four miles distant from Canton, and the road is a good one at this season of the year. But the most plausible supposition is" that they will cross Pearl river at a point twelve miles north by a littla east of Jackson, where there is an excellent ford, push on to Brandon, and thus get in the rear of Johnston.— Lynchburg Vir ginian. £ * ♦ ♦ 2E. Important from Europe. Richmond, July 19.—A special correspon dent of the Whig from Runker Hill, near Winchester, gives a summary of the news contained in the Baltimore American of the 16th, it has mostly been anticipated. The only thing new is the following, but it is not stated whether brought by a later arrival or not. Roebuck stated that Nepoleon had au thorized him to say to the House of Gommons, that he had instructed Baron Gross to propose negotiations to England for mediation. i The London Herald says it is reported that Sari Russll had resigned in consequence of a disagreement with the Premier on the ques tion of recognition of the South. Yankee cavalry advanced from Williams port on the 18ih, within 4 miles of Martins burg. !•'"'■'.'.* : ♦ •♦ » The Richmond Examiner says. General D. H. Hill (according to report) was at first or dered to Gen. Johnston, but whilst en route his destination was- changed and he was sent to Gen. Bragg, to take the place of Gen. Har dee, who was ordered to report to Geu. John -ston. From Charleston. The Enemy Repulsed with Great Slaughter—•■ Beauregard again Victorious. Charleston, July 19. To Gen. S.Cooper: The Ironsides, five Monitors, five Gun and Mortar Boats, and two land batteries of five guns, fired furiously all day on battery Wag ner—four killed, fourteen wounded, one gun carriage disabled. G. T. BEAUREGARD. [2nd dispatch.] July 19th, 3:45 A. M.—After a furious bombardment of eleven hours the enemy as saulted battery Wagner desperately and re peatedly, beginning at dark. Our people fought worthily and repulsed the attack with great slaughter—a number of prisoners were captured—our loss slight, including, htAvever, valuable lives. Gen. Taliaferro commanded on nur side. Pickets were well in advance. God again with us. G. T. BEAUREGARD. STILL LATER FROM CHARLESTON. Charleston, July 19.—The bombardment of battery Wagner yesterday was terrific five Monitor*, the Ironsides, seven wooden gunboats and two Yankee land batteries were .concentrated for 11 hours; at last the enemy numbering 10 Regiments, made a determined assault on our works, and after a desperate struggle, lasting until 11 o'clock, were repuls ed with heavy loss. Our loss is about 100 killed and wounded, the enemy's estimated at 1,500. We captured over 200 prisoners, in cluding some troops engaged in the assault. All quiet to day, burying the dead. n :*•• ' ' From the North—The Late Riot. "Richmond, July 18.—The Tribune of the 15th is very severe on the Herald and World. It charges that their counsels excited the riot in that city. The Herald does- not contain one word of comment on the outbreak in that city, except the preface to a description of the scenes. Greely made a very narrow escape the first day—the crowd were informed that he was dining at Winhurst's Hotel, and pro ceeded to that place, but Greely was, however, apprised of their approach and escaped in a hack—several men supposed to be reporters for the Tribune were seriously handled and one killed. I After making due allowances for the sensa tional character of reports m New York pa pers, it is evident that it was one of the most formidable outbreaks ever known on this con tinent, and will encourage similar demonstra tions in other Northern cities. _» » » Later from Sew York. More of the Riot—Third day Continued with Increased Fury. Petersburg, July 20th. The Herald of the 16th -says the riot con tinued all Wednesday without abatement.— The draft is positively suspended. Several dreadful conflicts between the military and people have occurred. Terrible fighting in I9th street. Military completely routed.— Col. Jardine wounded, a Captain and Lieu tenant of the sth N. Y. killed. Great slaugh ter of soldiers and people, forty dead bodies in one place. Negroes greatly persecuted, and three hurig. Gov't street completely sack ed. Great flight of negroes. The Council ap propriated two and a half millions for Con scripts. Two buildings in the 21st ward were sacked. Severe fighting at 7th avenue hos pital, and heavy loss of life. Disturbances exist in Boston, -New York, Yorkville, Brooklyn, Jamaica and other places, fait not so serious as at New York. Lincoln feet apart I—day1—day of August as a national thanksgiving. Lee escaped without leaving a gun, caison, ,or trapping for Meade, he is to be hotly pur sued. Morgan surrounded but not captured--the Herald says he will be, certain. _»» ♦ ■ Conscription. The late proclamation of the President, in relation to conscripts, refers only to those persons between the ages of 18 and 45 years and to conscripts between the ages of eigh teen and forty, who have not been here tofore exempted, either in consequence of physical disability or other causes. All per sons who have been examined by a military board, or have been exempted by the enroll ing officers of the several districts, are not called upon to report-themselvos. From Richmond. Richmond, • July 19.—Nothing important has. transpired to-day. The chief topic is the arrest of Mrs. Allen, wife of Patterson Allen, on the change of communicating in formation to the enemy. The accused is a native of Ohio, and became connected in Europe with one of the most respectable fami lies in Richmond. Letters written by her [ and forwarded by blockade runners constitute the evidence of her guilt; An officer from the Valley this evening, states that Meade's army is still in Maryland. The report that the enemy were landing troops from transports in James River 16 miles below Richmond is not confirmed.. ( « «»fc > From Lee's Army. The Cavalry Fight at Shepherdstown. Winchester, July 18.—All quiet in the army—nothing from the enemy—heavy skir . mishing on the 16th. The enemy attacked our cavalry at Shep herdstown with cavalry and artillery, and af ter a severe fight were repulsed, leaving their dead-and wounded on the field. We captur ed seventeen prisoners and a number of horses. Our army is in splendid condition—'few sick and no stragglers. Gen. Pettigrew is dead. « ♦ « I —. Cheering-. The following is an extract frsm a private letter, written by Gen* Stuart, to a citizen of Lynchburg, dated near Hagerstown, on the I,oth inst: "My cavalry has nobly sustained its reputation, and done better and harder fighting than ever, Since the war. We got the better of the fight at Gettysburg, but re tired, because the position we took could not be held. We have now a fresh supply of am munition, and wilbpve battle again soon." W tm Additional from tne UTorfb* THE RIOT QUELLED. The Draft to be Enforced, tfcc, &c.j &c. Richmond, July 21. Nbthern dates of the 18th received.- The riot in New York has been suppressed.. The Herald says perfect order reigns throughout the whole City. Yesterday the wards in which the highest excitement pre vailed were filled with large bodies of milita ry who patrolled the streets entirely unmo lested by the populace. A circular from the Provost Marshal Gene ral at Washington announces that the draft will be enforced and the Provost Marshals will be sustained by the military force of the country. Gen. Wool hits been superseded by Dix in command of the military forces of the city. Arch Bishop Hughes addressed, five thou sand men, begging them to be quiet and not resist the enforcement of the laws. Gen. Kemper is nut killed, but bids fair to recover. A telegram from Cincinnati the 17th says Morgan passed through Piketon going in the direction of the river via Pomery and Galli polis. From Richmond. Richmond, July 21st. A special despatch to the Whig says the enemy in force is reliably reported having crossed into Loudoun county the 18th. Nearly 500 Yankee commissioned officers are in confinement here. Bids for the cotton interest bonds were .opened on the 20th. The offers accepted rang ed at a premium of from fifty to one hundred per cent. Another call forbids for five million will be issued immediately. Married, Tuesday, July 14th inst. at tho resi dence of Mrs. Hetty Rhea by the Rev. James 0. Speer, Mr. Wilmam H. Licyd and Mrs. Nan cy Catron, all of Washington Co. Va. OBITUABIES. Departed this ljjfe on the 4th inst., at her home in Scott county, Va.. Miss Catharine Kane, after a painful and protracted illness of several months, which she bore With christian like fortitude till she fell asleep in the arms of Jesus. She was a pious member of the M. Episcopal Church, and was much concerned during her illness, with regard to her soul's sal vation and her future existence. Her whole soul, mind and strength were deeply engaged for several months before her death, in fervent prayer to God and singing and praising hie name. But a very few moments before she breathed her laet, she attempted to sing a hymn, and died shouting and praising the Lord —exhorting her two brothers and neighbors who stood by her dying bed to serve the Lord and meet her in Heaven, where parting, sickness, sorrow and death are seen nor felt no more. Thus has passed away from our midst an af fectionate sister, a worthy and kind neighbor, aad a true christian. May God in his wisdom and mercy give strength and comfort to her much distressed and afflicted brothers in their desolate and lonely condition in this trying hour of distress, and may each of them obey her solemn and dying request to "serve the Lord and meet her in Heaven." C. W. Died, at Saltville, Smyth county, Va., on the 24th of July, 1862, of diptheria, Albert P., in sant son of James M. and Ellen H. Webb, aged' 2 years, 4 months and 8 days. Albert, the darling of his mother's heart, was more than ordinarily sprightly, intelligent and promising for his age, and endured a prolonged illness of a month with uncommon patience. "We see around us, day by day, Some sweet and cherish'd flower decay; The fairest rose that scents the morn, Oft withers in its early dawn. But unlike them when children die, They bloom again beyond the sky; Bloom in those loveljJbowers of bliss Where shines the Sun of Righteousness.— Dear parents of the darling boy Who bloom'd your light, your pride, your joy, Whose perfect form, and angel grace, Whose laughing eye, and sunny face, Made him the favorite of your love, But who how lives in realms above, 0! dry your tears! Though sad to part With the loved idol of your heart, Still, weep not—in a little while You'll meet again your Albert's smile.

July 24—1w.. .!d BY THE GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA I A PROCLAMATION THE frequent and destructive raids of the enemy render it necessary that the reserves i of onr population, capable of military service, I should be employed for local defence, and for! repelling, with deserved punishment, those en-j gaged in such invasions. ) ' For this purpose I have received a requisition from the President of the Confederate States for eight thousand men, to be furnished from this State for service therein, for six months from the first day of August next. lam informed, at the same time, by the' Secretary of War, that the Congress has passed an act authorizing the President to accept the services of volunteers, to serve for such time as he may prescribe, for the defence of exposed localities, or such special service as he may deem expedient; that the Pre sident prefers to accept such volunteers in lieu of the militia, and that any number of men ren dered under that law will be deducted from the requisition for the militia; But it being impossible for tee to ascertain, at this time, what number will choose to organize themselves under the act of Congress referred to, I feel it to be my duty to aid tke President, as far as the power of the Executive extends, to provide for thejpecessary home defence'; and for that purpose I do hereby proclaim, that the mi litia of this Commonwealth, between the ages of 40 and 45 years, nsw liable to militia duty, shall forthwith be organized and hold themselves ready for duty by the first day of August next. To this end. all commandants of regiments of the militia of the line within the Commonwealth, will- cause thair respective commands to be im mediately summoned, appointing time and place of meeting for the purpose of electing company and field officers for making out mental districts, consolidating companies when below the mini mum strength, perfecting their organization as far as "practicable, and making a full report of the strength and condition of their commands as soon as possible to the Adjutant General. It becomes each private to prepare himself for a six months tour of duty, and to be prompt in hit preparations. It is incumbent upon the officers to perform the preliminary duties, necessary to effect this organization with and zeal. Additional orders will be issued by the first day of August, appointing the places of rendezvous and designating the officers for mustering them into service. If the voluntary organization referred to be accepted, it will diminish the number of the mi litia called for, and those who adopt it will have the privilege of remaining at home in the pursuit of their ordinary avocations, unless when called on for a temporary emergency to perform for a more limited time active duty. It is necessary that the people of the Conv roonwealth, who have heretofore cheerfully borne all the discomforts and privations incident to an invaded territory, and to tae heartlessness of an unscrupulous and worse than savage foe should exert themselves still further to protect their property and their homes with their che rished inmates. T doubt not they will be found now, as heretofore, equal to the emergency.— They will prove to our enemies that the gulf that severed us has widened and become impas sable, and that the breach cannot be re-united and Will demonstrate to the world that we are imitating and endeavoring to excel our fathers in detestation of tyranny and tyrants in our de termination to be independent and free.
