SoUkrs of the Army of tin Potomac:
I have fulfilled at least a part of my

The final and decisive battli? in at

bored so faithfully and fought so pal

West Point, Hanover Court House, and
Fair Oaks, now prove worthy of their
antecedents, the victory is surely onrs.
The events of every day prove your
superiority. Wherever you havo met
the enemy you have beaten him
Wherever you have used the bayonet,

effort. The enemy baa staked bis all

us meet him and crush him here in the
centre of the rebellion.
Soldiers! I will be with you in this
battle, and sharo its dangers with you.
Our confidence in each other n now

We have a report via New Orleans,
of the captare of Fort Morgan, which
commands the main entranoe to Mo
bile Bay, by the National forces. Tais
needs confirmation.
There is no nbws of interestfrom Hal
leek's army. Genv Mitcbet drove tne
rebels out of Chattanooga, Ala. last
Advices via Havana confirm the re
cent report of the defeat of the French
in Mexico. They lost 500 killed and
700 prisoners. The latter were releas
ed by tbeir captors, who could not
spare food enough for them. The
Mexicans are busily engaged in fortify
ing their eapital.
The 7th Indiana, 5th, 7th and 29th
Ohio regiments were in the battle near
Port Republic, in General Shields' di
vision. Governor Morton has advices
of the loss in tbo 7th Indiana. This
was very heavy. Out of 35C men in
the engagement, the killed and wound
ed numbered 143, and the missing 43
total, 186, or over fifty per cent.
This is conclusive evidence of hard
fighting and unsurpassed bravery. We
have no particulars of the loss in the
Ohio regiments.
Colonel Slack, who supersedes Col.
Fitch, in. command at Memphis, has in
troduced a new order of things. Trait
ors begin to wince under his treatment.
Col. Fitch was altogether too mild for
the rebels.
A report from Charleston states that
the rebels are supposed to have 30,000
men there, having been largely re-in-
forced from Beauregard's army. Our
troops bold James Island, but do not
deem an attack safe until their numbers
Tho crops in Upper Canada are suffer
ing severely from drought. There has
been no rain for six weeks.
Largo quantities of cotton, sugar and
moIas.ees are coming up the river from
31 emphis.
We have news from New Orleans to
the 2d. Com. Farragut returned from
Vicksburg in the Richmond, without
attaekiog the place which, though with
in reach of his guns, stands rather high
up from the water. Its capture cannot,
however, be long delayed. The Rich
mond, in its down river voyage, was
fired on several times from the banks.
Tho Postoffice Department has di
rected the resumption of mail facilities
to Memphis, Tenn.
Another ship load of contrabands
will soon leavo Washington for Ilayti,
making in all about five hundred during
the present month sent there.
Col. Fitch has been superseded in the
command at Memphis, by Col. Slack, of
tho Forty-Seventh Indiana.
The latest advices from Memphis are
of a favorable charaoter. The people
submit very quietly, and even willingly
to National rule. There bad been a
large number of applications, on the
part of prominent ciiiieus, for the po
sition of Postmaster. The office bad
been reopcued and an agent of the
Treasury Department was on the way
to put the Custom House io operation.
An interesting Letter from Corinth
will be found on our first page.
A new regiment raised under the late
call left Columbus for Cumberland, Md.
last week. Two others are ready for the
field, besides one regiment organized as
a State Guard. Tho four regiments are
numbered 84th, 85th, 86th and 87th.
The 85th is the State Guard.
The Missouri State Convention, now
in session, has required clergymen to
tak e the oath of allegiance. Ex-Gov.
Ste.ort was severe upon the clergy
considerably more so than Dr. Breck
inridge, who, in the General Assembly,
boldly neensed three of the Presbyter
ian ministers at St. Louis of disloyalty
Tho Convention also passed an ordi
nance prohibiting rebels from voting
or boldiog office.
The Contrabands at Port Royal,
S. C Edward L. P.wee, agent of the
Treasury Department at Port Royal,
arrived at Washington on the 13th.
His report of the agricrltffal condition
of the island, cul '.vatcd by free negro
labor, is enoou.-0iDg. Some 13,000
acres are. planted, nearly half in cotton,
and the crops are forward and well
cared for.
A Tkbriblb Visitation The lost
of fourteen thousand persons from the
city of Jiew York would be only in pro
portion that the town of Gloucester
(Massachusetts has suffered from the
February pale. Not less than thirteen
fishing vessels, with crews averaging
nine or teu men are lost from that sin
gle place. The effect of such a sweep
ing calamity on the social relations of
cueb a towu may be better imagined
thon described.
[For the News.
"Annotator" to Mr. Pike.
In undertaking to write occasional
communications for the News, on po
litical topics, we did not expect to re
ceive the approbation of Mr. Pike.-
That approbation would afford the pub-
lio strong presumptive evidonco that
something was wrong in our positions
or in our manner nf treating thorn. In
becoming the target of his epithetic
abuse, we only share the fats of better
and wiser men. After giving formal
"notice' that ho would not notice
anonymous writers, he has nevertheless
noticed in bis peculiar style almost ev
cry article we have written. Tho stylo
of epiihtt which he substitutes for argu
tnent, msy tickle tho fancie and plense
tho tattet of Ai'i readers, but we are
"vain" enough to think does not minis
ter to their edification. Ho says, "lie
has long bored the readers of tin High
land News with the brilliant scintela
tions (scintillations?) from his pen."
This is certainly a very "brilliant" spec
itn en of Pike's rhetorio and ortbogra
phy. His metaphors mix most incon
gruously. His spelling we presume be
will claim as an improvement upon
Webster and the latest authorities.
This is the man who sayi "we are
willfully ignorant or flagrantly dishoo
est." Does Mr. P., in the loftiness of
his illumination, "condescend" to point
out wherein we have exhibited "wilful
ignorance or flagrant dishonesty," or
does he expect his naked assertions to
be received without question in an in
telligent c ommunity whero pooplo form
their own opinions? If be does he
reckons uithout his host. Wa call for
the specifications and the facts, other
wise his statement is branded as calum
nious, ne says, "He seems to be jn
great tribulation because we (the editor)
do not condescend to give him promi
nence befor the publio by noticing his
silly lucubrations more fully in the Ga
zette." In tjiis sentence ho both ex
acts and pays tribute to his own "vanity
and egotism." In the hallucination of
his "vanity" he imagines us sueing at
his editorial tripod for "notice ' to give
us "prominence." His success in giv
ing himself "prominence" has not been
such as to inspire us with very san
guine hopes of obtaining distinction in
tbis way. His kind of "notoriety" we
do not envy or aspire to.
He says, "The brilliant scintclations
from his pen" are "silly lucubrations."
Well, we are not surprised that our
humble anonymous labors are not ap
preciated by an editor who thinks boring
is done with "scintelatio.a," and who at
tempts to conceal his "ignorance" by
substituting "silly" pans without wit
or point, and low-flung epithets for gen
tlemanly discussion.
We are not the first writer who has
bad detractors among "dull, conceited
hashes." There are always those who
cannot appreciate that which is above
and beyond them, and who are ready
to pronounce such "lucubrations silly."
In our own case wo ask a change of
venue from Pike's tripod, to a more en
lightened and disinterested tribunal,
He wants our "real name." What that
has to do with the argumentative dis
cussion of political topics, we are "stol
id" enough not to perceive. The proper
investigation of any question before
the public, can be best prosecuted by
excluding personalities and side issues;
but this is just what Piko does not
want Such legitimate argumentation
candidly and honestly conducted would
only tend to expose the indefensible
weakness of his cause, and the shallow
ness of bis pretensions. Truth and
logical argumentation are abstractions
and do not depend for their force upon
tbo virtues or defects of individuals.
Did any one ever think of charging the
Junius of English politics with not
"acting the man," in choosing to dis
cusspuoh'c affairs and public men under
tho mask of an anonymous writer?
Alexander Hamilton, and James Madi
son, though tbey might bavo added to
the weight of their lucubrations by
writing in propria persons, chose to
write over fictitious signatures. Did
any body but Pike ever conceive that,
therefore, they rendered their produo
tions unworthy of "serious notice?"
He says we "are a compound of van
ity and egotism," because we said our
blows upon his Democratie hide were
"trenchant." He had said we "bored"
our readers we said our blows wore
cutting. We think from the winciog and
writhing of Pike that we are right
Oi r "intelligent readers are able to de
cide between us."
Pike, like all novices and pretenders,
depreciates and undervalues that which
be does not possess; yet he cannot for
bear to parade his shreds and patches of
learning to show that ho too has thought
"to climb Parnassus," but only like the
monkey upon tho pole, got high enough
to expose himself the more conspicu
ously. We commend to him the poet's
"A little Imi-nltif la a Uiigiirou thing
Drluk duiip or Uta not tbti I'larliui priiic;
Tlitu tlialluw drauglila Intoikate tl brniu,
Aud drliikibf lurgnlytubcri u aj;alii."
But Pike has one unfailing rcsoarce
bis grand Catholicon, ir he eon but
pronouuee over the "name" of the un
lucky wight who comes between the
wind and his nobility the cabalistio
leriu "Abolitionist," be is presto! done
for finished beyond the reach of the
hsnd of rosurreotionl I there not
danger that this geasd speciffo, brought
out on every occasion, grave or gay,
will exhale by too frequent exposure,
and thus will become stale, flat and un
profitable? He talks of giving "full $n tinaction"
it he can only get tho "real name" of
the "combatant" who has ventured with
mask on and visor down, to "enter the
newspaper arena" against the redoubt
able Piko.
As the questions at insno between us
sro not such as can only be dooided by
a pa mo of fisticuff-, or an appeal to the
codo duello, we do not see what the
throwing off of tho "mask" has to do
with tho elucidation of the truth, and
the appropriation of the laurels of vie
tory. He promises to concede the "vie
tory" when it is gained. This, certain
ly, would bo very liberal for Pike. If
Pike is to bo taken as a model Demo
crstio editor, there is no need to "con
luse their brains in coilego clnsses to
learn "Greek" or "Latin Barnes;" al1
that is necessary to give "prominence"
among thoso who are "willfully igno
rant or flagrantly dishonest," is to have
sense enough to bawl "Abolitionist"
An Interview with Beauregard.
A Sergeant in an Indiana rptriment,
named Gardner, who was taken prison
er at the battle of Shiloh. gives the fol
lowing account of an interview witb
After his capture Mr. Gardner was
immediately moved off to Corinth,
where he remained until 9 o'clock the
next evening, and was taken Jo Beau
regard, who asked him what ho came
there for. He answered "To uphold
the Union." Gen. Beauregard said:
"God d n the Union: there is none.
You have come down here to fight fen
tVemen. You are a set ofd d Yan
kee robbers, murderers ond thieves.
1 ou come down here to rob and mur
der the women and children. I have
a notion to hang you." Gardner sr
swered: "They have tried to shoot
me," and pointed to his wounded arm,
and Beauregard answered, "it is a pity
it was not your d d head." An ar
tillery officer hero interposed, begsing
the General not to abuse him, as he
was a prisoner, when the General an
swered: "He has no bolter sense than
to come to our soil to fight us. Why did
he not Rtay at home? He did not
want me there." Gardner said to him,
"General, it is of no use for me to re
ply to you. You hove me in your pow
er. 1 am a prisoner of war. If vou
were taken prisoner by our men you
would not be treated in this manner."
lie replied that he never would bo ta
ken prisoner.
