rUBLISQKD EVERT THURSDAY BY - Editors and Proprietors, -.JMAYSVILLE. MAY 19 ' From, the Cincinnati Time May 17th. V l: .": THE ItEWS. .' ;j o The. priocfpsl information received .last night by telegraph ia to the effect that the contending armies of the East are at present fi a "mud-bound" condition' .Lee bas fal lea back.ooly to such a distance as will se cure him strong position, where it Is evi dent be intends to male another strong ef fort to oppose farther advance , of the i Fed eral armies., s; '.. r :. ; Id the meantime Geo. U BAST is impo rov ing tber time by arranging his. army ia .a more, suitable tuacner for another hotly contested engagement. Hancock now holds the extreme right, Bobstsidb and "Weight the center,while Wabbes is on the . left. The headquarters of the army have been moved somewhat Id advance of their late location; - ' '- '"- . Leb is reported to have teen reen forced by troops from Georgia and North Carolina. Whatever troth there may be in this, we cannot well Imagine that he could have re ceived aid from any other qnarter. .. ,Gen. Shebmah has had a severe engage ment at Resaca. His loss la sid to be about three thousand. He has, however gained, great advantages over the Rebel army. Resaca is situated in a mountainous portion of Northern Georgia, and it caa hardly be expected that the Rebels should be routed from their strongholds there without the l03s of life. . ...' ' . t ". ' , ' Id formation relative to , Rebel .Generals said to have been wounded, is contradictory of former reports. Gen. Stuabt is not kit led; Longstbekt is. not mortally wounded", and Les is not wounded at all. - 'Everything seems to be ia favorable con dition with Gen. BrjTLEB. -The enemy's guns in the earthworks near the, fort bad been silenced at the latest advices from that quarter. - General Butler commands in person. ' The fact that Gen. Hoke's forces now bold Fort Darling is evidenceHhat nearly the entire Rebel troops, except Johhsoh's and Polk's armies are in the defenses around Rica rue Dd. Hoke was the capturer of .Ply mouth,' North Carolina, and commander of all the Rabel troops in' that State. When the force In Virginia is destroyed, Jeff Da vis will have no army to fall back upon. " ' Our total losses in the late battles of! the East, exclusive of those of BrBNBiDE's corps is footed up at 27.500 killed, wounded cap tured and missing. ' " ' Soldiers are being hnrried to the front from all quarters. The Eighty.sixth Ohio which bas been coirjg guard duty at Gamp Chase, and the One Hundred and Twenty eight, which has been stationed at Johnson's Island, have been ordered to move. By the arrival of the 'City of London' we learn that the Secession sympathizers in the British Parliament are trying to raise an is sue with the Ministry in relation to the per mission given the United States troops in Minnesota to enter British territory. The Ministry .however, are so satisfied of the justice of the case that they merely express their willingness to produce the papers, aud do not trouble themselves to make any la bored explaDtions. The facts are simply that a band of the plundering and murder ing "Sioux bad stationed themselves just north of the line which eeperates Upper Minnesota from the British possession, re turning whenever they could get a chance to commit any depredatioo,and then retreat ing to their refuge again. . Application was made and permission granted for our soldiers to chase the red rascals to their fancied ref uge and take them into custody. 10 o'clock dispatches. Our dispatches received this morning state that the Rebels are strengthening their line in frontof Gbakt. The Federal command er is, however, shifting his position ia such a manner that the new lice of defenses may tot be of much avail. Generals Meade and Wright, it seems, made a narrow escape on Saturday last while riding beyond our lines. A sudden attack was made immediately after on our left, the final result was that we regained the ground so unexpectedly occupied by the Rebels. An immense estimate ia furnished us as to the strength of the Rebel army. Lee is reported to have under his immediate com mand about 150,000 men-. We are inclined to doubt the statement. The Richmond Examiner of the 12th has the following: .. Steele's army. 9.000 strong, surrendered to Dick Taylor at Camden. Arkansas, on the 28th. Prico had demanded the- surrender of Alexandria.' A Scientific" Fa ct. It is a' fact,' corrob orated by scientific in vestigation,thata brick building, unpainted, absorbs a large quanti ty of water, and -in course of time the walls DcGuuio uaiup, auu, us b uecessurjr cuu se quence, the rooms unhealthy. It stands to reason, from the- poroua nature of the brick, that encb a-result should follow. Every brick building should have a tbickTcoat of paint and varnish, which will act as a pro tection against moisture, thus preserving the strength aud durability of the walls, as well as the health of the Inmates. .

' ' . the Telegraph Can Not I Trusted Its Cen 8r3?lipThe Truth in Relation to ihe Bat tles -Terrible-Destruction of Life. --'' - v "WASHiKGifTos- Citt, May 12, 1864. ' . To the Editors of the Enquirer: - Entertaing the belief that too would like to have the opinions and the facts In rela tion to the recent battles on or ner the Rap idan, as they are known to your old - corves--pondent, 'Cleveland I have concluded to write you ence more. " I presume .you are aware that you can pot rely upon the tele graph for the facts, as the Government has a censor itfall the principal cities, and partic ularly here in Washington is the censor ship rigid and severe. If a correspondent of tbe'Enquires, or any other paper, should attempt to send news of an ' unfavorable character to the success of the army, he is at once spotted, and from that hour the tol egraph is closed against him. " He is not told that the telegram shall not be sent, but the paper fails to get the dispatch. I know this to be the case io more than a dozen instan ces. . I have learned it from 'the employee of the telegraph companies. . You mu -t de pend , for relibable information upon the mails, and even they are not alwayscertaio, for there exists a well grounded belief that letter have been tampered with in their transmission. .." ' . From what I can learn of the late battles I am satisfied that from the day Grant cros sed theRapidan until last night be bas been decidedly worsted in evary. conflict, losing far moe men than Lee, and obtaining do advantages in position or other strategy to compensate. Our advance into the rebel territory bas been slight indeed, not more than 12 or 15 miles; and if we should lose all" the way in a corresponding ratio, our. ar my would be entirely destroyed before it reached Richmond. The rebels have fre quently beeo the attacking pirty, and have generally held the field until the going down of the sun. The fact of six or seven Fed eral Generals beiog killed, two or three wounded and two or three taken, prisoners, wnile fear eminent rebel officers have fallen, is significant. Generals do not tbur expose themselves except when there is evident danger of a disastrous defeat and rout to the army. Ndver io the annals of war has there beeo such a mortality among officers as io this campaign on the Federal side. In this connection 1 cannot forbear expressing my deep regret it the death of the brave and chivalrous Sedgwick, one of the very best officers in our service a gentleman for whom I have loog cherished the strongest feelings of friendship. , . . When the full details of these, terrib battles are spread before the country, not by lying special dispatches and bulletins, but as they are, they will cast a gloom over the whole country. The destruction of life bas beeo fearful to contemplate. I have just seen a friead who arrived an hour ago from the army, and his description of the slaugh ter, the appearance of tbe dead and wouo ded upon the battlefield is enough to make the stoutest beart quail, and incline all men for peace. The stories of our success are not kcowo to tbe army. Ooly the moot he roic courage upon the part of the troops and energy upon that if General Grant has pre vented an abandonment of the campaign and the falliog back to the poaition across the Rapidan. We have lost nearly one third of our ar my " in killed, wounded and prisoners. Forty thousand is a low and moderate es timate, and yet the heavy work of the cam paign is upon 03 Of this number eight or ten thousand are prisoneis, and three Gen erals are taken with tbem. Tbe strong point ol Lee's"defeose have not been reached, sod they will be defended with terrible te nacity. ' ' - . Lee's army :s well disciplined, and is ac tuated by tbe deepest hate to tbe Federals. It is fearful to think of the loss we will suffer io the progress or this campaign Tbe telegraph Jwill tell you of tbe early fall of Richmond, and as tbe public desire to receive it, it will be accepted as a fact. If f was more desirous of popularity than of expressing an honest opinion, and telling you the Tacts, 1 snouia coincide in u. It is a thankless thing to express a belief contrary to that of the people generally; but I have always disciplined myself to over look my wishes in considenog what , is or whatls not likely to bappeo. I am aware that Grant's army is immense. I have a high respect for his ability and that of his nrinciDal officers: but nevertheless I am sat isfied, from tbe natural difficulties existing azainst him, to tbe character of the country. io the ditncuuy or transportation ana sao- sistance, that tbe campaign will be barren of results, and that, like all previous cam paigns against Richmond, this also will prove to be a failure. This opinion is shared io by many intelligent friends of tbe Ad ministration, who b ave tbe sense and tbe courage not to be misled by their hopes There are others who more than doubt whether any real advantage would be gain ed by tbe capture of Richmond, if the he roism of our troops and the pluck of Grant should take that city, after asacrifice of six ty or seventy thousand meo. It would only open another long line of eotnmuriicatiou to guard. It would give ou ran on io the war. We all remember tbe import ance attached to VicKsourg. ictttourg . i . i ft once in our possession, 'ana iue wd federacy was sundered, and the war was practically over, was tbe cry of tbe super ficial and weak, who know how to create trouble, but are as ignorant as children of the employment of proper means for. the settlement of national difficulties. So it would be with Richmond. The taking of it would hav no perceptible effsct opoa the duration of the war. but it would have . to be followed by new campains.to exhaust me Diood and treasure of tbe country. An other Richmond would be found .a. few miles South, aud the career of conquest eDd subjugation would have to begin airesh and anew. - We are pursuing an ignus fat us, that will lead us into tbe ecdless slouch of war aud Datiooal ruin.

The Yankees from time to time throw a shell into the city and nobody seems to mind it. But misfortune willed that yes terday a shell should throw the entire com munity Into mourning. . -. .:Miss Anna Pickens, the daughter of our former Governor, sever consented to -leave the city. v Despite the - representations of General Beauregard, she remained braving shells and Greek fire, tending tbe wounded and cheering all with her presence. Among the wounded officers under ber care was Mr Andrew de Rochelle, a descendant of one of tbe noblest Unguenot families of the city. This, young mao was full of the liveliest gratitude for his fair ourse; gratitude gave b'.rta to a more tender sentiment; his suit was listened to; Gov, Pickens gave bis con sent, and the marriage was fixed for yester day, the 23d April, v ; - Lieut.de Rochelle was on duty at Fort Sumpter in the morning, and it war deter mined that tbe ceremony should take place at the residence of Gen. Boobam, io tbe eveoing, at 7 o'clock. At the moment when the , Episcopal clergyman was asking tbe bride if she was ready, a shell fell upon the ruof of the boildiog, penetrated to tbe room where the company was assembled,' burst and wounded nine persons, and among tbe rest Miss Anna Pickens. - We cannot des cribe the scene tbat followed. Order was at last re-established, and the wounded were removed, all except tbe bride, who lay mo tiooless upoo tbe carpet. Her betrothed, kneeling and bending over ber, was weep ing bitterly and tryiog to staunch the blood tbat welled from a terrible wound under her led breast. A surgeon came and declared that MisaPickena had not longer than two boora to nve. .. We will not paint tbe gen eral despair. .. . - . V beu the wouoded girl recovered her consciousness, she asked to know her fate, and, when they beaiuted to tell her "Andrew," sbe said, 'I beg you tell me the truth. -If I must die, I can die worthy of you." . 1 he young soldier's tears -were bis answer, and Miss Anna, summoning all ber strength, attempted to smile. Nothing could be more aert reoding than to see the agony of this brave girl, struggling in tbe embrace of death - and against a terrible mortal pang. (Jot. Piekens, whose courage is known, wa3 almost without consciousness, aud Mrs. Pickens looked upon ber child with the dry and haggard eye of one whose reason totters ... ' - Lieut, de Rochelle was tbe first to speak. "Anna," be cried, "I will die soon, too, but 1 would have yoa die my wife. There is yet time to unite us." - The youn, girl did not reply; she was too weak. A slight flush rose for an instant to ber pale cbeek; it could be seen that joy and paio were struggling io her spirit for tbe mastery. Lying upoo a sofa, her bridal dress all stained with blood, her bair dia bevleJ.she had sever been more beautiful. Helpless as she was, Liur. de Rochelle took her hand and requested tbe Rev. Mr. Dickinson to proceed with the ceremony. When it was time for tbe dying girl to say Tea. her lips parted several times, but she could uot articulate, r At last tbe word was spoken, and a slight :oax rested upon her lips, I be drmg agony : was nesr. The minister sobbed as he proceeded with the ceremony. An hour afterward all was over and tbe bridal chamber was tbe chamber of death. Lieut, de Rochelle has sworn to perish iu battle against tbe Yankees, and we are sure tbat be will keep his oath. He has oow a double motive to bate tbem and bis own existence.

Our Regiment has lost 103 men, killed, wounded and missing; this. is the largest number we ever lost in a Battle, being abeut as many as we have ever had altogether be--fore: tbe Regisaent had only about 300 men engaged, so that you can see that we lost every third man, which I believe is about the heaviest loss, ever knowH in battle on the Field. Tbe figh ting did not cease until 4 o'clock In tbre evening, when both sides stopped firing the Rebels in possession of tbe fiild. About 5 o'clock our forces again advanoed and the Rebels retired, when we went to work collecting our dead" and wounded. Tbe worst feature of tbe whole affair was, the burning of the dead and wounded; the ground on which tbe Battle was fought was covered with leaves aod old dry brush, sod by the firing of the guns and bursting of tbe shells, it was set on fire, and all who were left on the field were burnt, though I do not think there were many, but turns of our own Regiment I - know of, say six or eijfht, bow many of other Regiments I do not know, as I have had no chance of learning thia morning. We still hold bur position, . we. are between Petersburg and Richmond, and bavedestroyed the Railroad, and bold the turnpike;' how long we will do so I cannot tell, but 1 think that we are in a bad place, as they can move almost the whole Rebel force against us here, in a short time, and we are not strong enough to whip the whole Rebel army. ' .Thanks to God, our Company did not lose a mAn, nor did we have one even wounded, we were on the extreme left, to protect' tbe left flank, and were not In the fight, but had tbe best view of it tbat was possible to be had, the bullets rained all around us, tbe shell burst over, before and behind us, tbe pieces flying io all directions, I was ex pecting to be killed every moment, -but thank God, not one of ns were hurt. We were ordered to fall back, but somehow the order was not understood and our Company and a part of Company E. were within a hairs breadth of being captured in a body, we were not twenty yards out of tbe plough ed field that we had to cross, when the Rebels in a heavy body moved np on our left aod clear around the position we had just left; It was a narrow escape Indeed, and I was glad as you may be sure, for I had a! most as leave be shot as to be taken a pri- . sooer, now, as my time is up, but I will not be discharged before the 19th of next month, but the chances are that I may - either be killed or taken prisoner before that time, for we ere fighting every day, and have been for several . days, but ontll this - time we culy had two" men of our Regiment wounded, and tbey both belong to Company E, so far our Company has not met with any loss.
