They were r00 strong, under Col. Hunter, and lost 40 killed and 17 wounded. As it comes from the yankces its veracity may well be questioned. A Louisville despatch of Aug. 20th nays The steamer Hannibal has been sunk by General Pillow's guns and 400 prisoners taken. This news conns from Paducah, whence the boat has been running daily to Cairo, and Commerce, 20 miles above Cairo. From Mishouhi. A. despatch from Gen, Fremont, dated St. Louis, August 14, says Gen.

Not one of them has a shuck bed to lav on. The ladies of this city have been engaged for a long time in making things of that sort for the soldiers. -What has become of the things they have made? It should be looked to. Surely there must be a mistake about this. North Carolinians do not thus neglect their gallant soldiers. It should be looked into the report corrected, if false ; or remedied if true. Old Ansox Again ! The Pee Dee Wild Cats another company from Anson has ar rived and gone into camp near this City.

Editor Spirit or the Age : I simply have time to drop you a few lines. Since I last wrote you, I visited Burwell'sBay, about two miles distant from our Cam, The river at that point is seven miles wide. The oppo site shore is barely visible. From the eleva ted ptinfs of the shore the prospect was a grand one. Down the river, I could easily see the trees at Newport New, a distance of at least twenty miles; up the river I could see nearly as far. Two of our batteries, each about three miles distant, but in different di rections,- were in sight. They command the channel, which vessels of war are obliged to pursue in passing up the viven The rater ot the river here is ver salt, and the waves roared and surged like those of the soa. There are several cool springs of water near the river, that somewhat-remind one of the mountains. Yesterday I visited Smithfield, which is a pleasant village of about 800 inhabitants, sit uated on Pagan creek, about three miles from its mouth. The creek being navigable by steamboats and other vessels of moderate size, would be called a river by the people of the highlands. I shall not soon forget the hospitility of Rev. Mr. Potts, who lives in the place, and who has charge of Smithfield Circuit. He is the personification of polite ness and Virginia hospitality. I learned here that it is rumored in Richmond, that the Southern Confederacy has been recognized in England. I fear it is only a rumor. It is the opinion of some men in this coun try, that there will be lively times in the peninsula shortly. We wili see by waiting. I wrote to you about the death of one of our Com pan', a son of Rev. Thomas Strad ly, of Asheville. As evidence of the pa triotism and magnanimity of this worthv min ister, I mention the fact, that as soon as he heard of the death of his son he started an other of his sons to take his place. The health of the Regiment is improving. We have, however, a few cases of fever and ague. The Regiment is by no means impro ving in morals. ROUGH & READY. Suffolk, Va., Aug. 21, 1861. A few of the sick members of the 4th Re giment of N. C. Volunteers are still with us, but a squad leaves nearty evcy day. Lieut Pierson's command is thus growing beauti fully less every day. Lieut P. commands with dignity, and has shown himself a good officer, but Iljelieve he is quite anxious to join his Regiment below. v There was heavy firing in the direction of Newport News this morning. About 8 o'clock I counted 21 guns, and shortly after, 14 more, and since that time the firing has con tinued somewhat irregularly.. From., the regularity in the tiring, I presume it must have been a salute, perhaps, on the arrival of Gen- Wool at Old Point, lhe impression is gaining strength that the next movement of the enemy will be in this section. A land ing will probably be attempted on the southside of the James. Magruder. and his masked batteries strike terror into the Yan ¬ kee ranks, and not knowing so much of Gen. Pemberton, they would probably rather risk him. But I predict that their new General will be badly wooled when he moves no mat ter whether upon Sewell's Point, toward Yorktown, Pig Point or Burweli's Bay. A number of North Carolina gentlemen arrived here last night, and have gone do A n to the 3d and 4th Regiments to-day. The The cars on the Seaboard and Norfolk and Petersburg Railroads, pass up and down each day crowded with passengers. Thirty-six members of the 4th Regiment of N. C. Volunteers left here on the sick list, went off this morning to join their comrades. The Regiment to which our esteemed Correspondent is attached, has gone to Staunton, Va., to join Gen. Lee's Brigade. V Editor Burke Tigers, August 10, 1861. I take pleasure, this morning, in informing our friends, that the Burke Tigers are at Valley MountainRandolph co , Va., watch ing impatiently for a fight, and this we ex pect to realize shortly, unless the yankees run. We have between five and six thou sand troops here now, and still more expec ted soon, and we are . making arrangements as fast as possible to rout the enemy from Southern soil. We are sorry to say to our friends, that in our travel from Monterey to Valley Mountain, we have not met those welcome greetings from the Ladies that we met from Raleigh to Monterey.-' . But we have met fathers, mothers and children retreating from their own loved hoiuesand firesides, while we have seen others that seemed very un concerned as to who would gain the victory the fantics of the North, or the heroes of the South. This brings to our memory the dark and dreadful days of the Revolution, when the great Washington was pleading to the people to rise and shake off the yoke of bon dage. , ' " Since I have been here, I ha,ve had the pleasure of reading three copies of the Spir it of the Age, and I can say from my heart, that those three copies nave well paid me for mv dollar. No one knows the consola tion it affords a soldier while in a far distant land, to have the reading of such a paper as the Spirit of the Age. I say not this through flattery, but from a conscious heart, and cm say truly, that while I have had the reading of nearly all the diuerent papers that are now published, the Spirit of the Age gives the most reliable news of all other papers I have seen. And as for the price, no man of conscience can complain of that T. C. C. To Mt.

Headquarters 14th Regt N. C. VolV. Weldon, N. C. Aug. 16th, 1861. Editor Spirit of the Aae : The hour de nominated in Military technicalities 'Roast Beef is just over, and the rain is falling fast. Rainy, wet weather tends no little to in crease the intensity of the intense monotony of Camp life. All are now within their tents, amusing themselves and beguiling the tedium of the hours which hang heavily on their hands, as the fancy of each one suggests: Some reading, some writing, some singing, some fiddling. &c. Instead of 'Roast Beet' we usually have the pleasure of dining on bread and fat bacon, seasoned on such das as this, with rain. Sometimes the kindness and liberality of the people around provide us with some vegeta bles, which, though usually regarded as con traband articles in war, add greatly to the variety which, with us, forms the " spice of life." WTe know you could not helD Ditvinsr the poor soldiers, if you could only see them ing their frugal meals in theiain. Each one seizes his share in his hand and betakes himself to whatever shelter is near. A good many though will stand in the rain and take it as patiently as a goose or duck. ! A time of war is of necessity a time of hardship and sacrifice to all, and this should be constantly impressed on the mmd ot eve ry citizen ; but it is on those who are bearing arms, that the principal burden must fall at last Those who are at home enjoying the usual pleasures of life, may deny themselves everything they can, but they cannot, by the utmost stretch of their imaginations, picture off the privations of war hence, they should neglect nothing that could add in any wy to the comfort of the soldier. It is too fre quently the case, that those who are blessed with plenty, are unable to appreciate the con dition of those who are in want The only thing in this village now to inter rupt the sameness of Camp life, is the con stant passing of troops to the seat of war. But this has now become so common that it produces little interest A'thins after having once been enjoyed, must become new before it can be enjoyed again. There are not as many troops passing on now as were a few days ago. - ' Everything now seen here is according to military taste.

This striking fact foreshadows the character of this who'c war in . the west. Though Price and McCulIoch had onlv 15,00 men in the fight, they had 10,000 others, who have since joined them. With this force, which will be augmented, as they advance, to 50,000 or 60,000, by the infu riated people of Missouri, who are A rushing to arms from all quarters, they will proceed rapidly to St Louis, sweeping the Hessians before them. O.i the route they wm be joined by Gen.-. Hardee and Gen. Thorn; son, leadin the cent: e column, and probably by Gen. Pillow of the right - wing pioeeeding up the river from -i New Madrid. These com bined, will speedily put an end to HesMan sway in the great Commonwealth of Missou ri, and be in position to give Chicago and Cincinnati a fatal back-handed lick.

The Great Victory in Missouri Three Thousand Hessians Killed, Etc All the intelligence from the battle near Springfield, hitherto published, came from Federal souices. That, though one sided and obviously partial, supplied the framework for a great victory, it conceded' the loss of eight hundred, of the Commanding General, and the hurried retreat of the. lemuning forces. Now we have news from our side. which enables us to correct the error f the enemy, supply his omissions, and give a pret ty accurate view of the whole affair 'and to form a just estimate of its vast consequen ces. . It was a great battle, immensely- bloodv. and resulting in a complete and brilliant vic tory to the Southern arms. Elsewhere, we give the substance of a- telegram received Saturday, by Mr. Johnson, of Arkansas, from a reliable source. From a distinguished sen. tleman from Missouri, just arrived in this ci ty w gather other particulars, not only in relation to the battle, but to lhe condition and temper of the oppressed, but gallant and indomitable, people of Missouri. i According to his statement, Lyon wa& in an entrenched camp, seven or eight miles from Springfield, with 11,000 men. Price and McCulIoch attacked him in his entrench ments early Saturdiy morning the 10th with 15,000. The contest raged with inteiise fury, till some time in the afternoon, when the enemy were routed and pursued to Springfield, There they made a stand ; but were instantly assailed, and were driven 'hrough the town and out of it at the point of the bayonet the pursuers walking on dead bodies tho whole length of the street. The enemy continued -their retreat in great haste making a march of 33 miies during the mgtit, according to Federal accounts. When last heard from by our informant, our cavalry --Texa3 and Ar-r kan?a3 Rangers were in hot pursuit, with every prospect of exterminating - the whole army.
