"The following article- is from tho pen of "S. L." tlie intelligent Richmond1 correspondent of tho Knoxville Regis ter : The London Press How we Have Suffered. Some timo ago I furnished your readers with an account of tho Paris ian press, and it may bo well to advert to that of London. You mu6t know that the stamp duty has been rescind ed, and newspaper litoraturo lias been greatly cheapened in Groat Britain. "When tho stamp duty was no longer collected, penny newspapers came. in to existence. The price of a single number of tho Times was reduced from six pence to four penco, and finally brought down by rivalry of the cheap er and snvi'or newspapers, it is now sold at throe pence per copy. Nows venders in London hired out the Times nt a penny in hour, each copy passing through the hands of several readers, and then returned to the shop of the news-dealer, was sent in the afternoon to the country towns, where it was sold at three pence. This journal represents the middlo classes, but now, under tho cheaper newspaper system, persons and lawyers, and many .tradesmen, have abandoned the Times, and become readers of the less costly daily prints. Tho advertising patronage of the Times has incurred a diminution hardly per ceptible. Englishmen are slow to chan go their habits of thought, , and alike of their business. Tho daily cir culation of tho Times in and around London, is now supposod to bo not more than twenty-five or thirty thousand.- This great English newspaper may always remain the "zens ntphele geretes" the " cloud gathering." Thun derer of the European press, though conducted with extraordinary ability. The cheaper ephemeral literature of tlio age is slosvly invading the dontains of the isolated supremacy of the Times. In substitution for Mr. Russell, whom the South so universally detests, the Times hrs now a correspondent in this city in tho person of tho Hon. Mr. Lawley. Of thi3 gentleman I know nothing, save that hois said to be an Abolitionist. The Star irf the radical Abolition, liWtv and nn?.litv orzran of the John Bright, Cobden Manchester party. It is tho Lincoln-Seward organ, and the xponent of Exeter Hall, Mesdamcs Stowo and Sutherland freedom snnei. erg. , It upholds all cants and isms, is low and ecurrillous like the old Chart ist Press, and inveighs against all mon- irfthl&l institutions. The , Morning Herald, the organ of the nobility and conservative gentry, ,k owned by the, proprietors of the Standard. The Herald remains a class paper at three penco, the Standard is old at a penny, and contains reprints from tho Herald. The same direction W thus given to tho opinion ox tvro classes of readers. Tho numiing issue ef Ki tr.M 4a rtni. .i5.000 and tho vening edition 15,000. these nucbers being great'y increased on the advent f American ..intelligence. With its fto daily 'editions, tho Herald stands "oxt in circulation to the Telegraph. Tho subscribers to the Herald aro the most influential of tho governing class es. Both the Horald and Telegraph have larger oirculationsthan the Times. Tho Telegraph is threo or four years old, and has now a daily circulation of seventy thousand. It is tho great loml London newspaper. Tho News is tho organ of tho soleet radicals of tho Bright-Cobdcn school. It is tho Star over again, edited by a gentleman, if an Abolitionist can bo n gentleman. Tho Herald, for fifteen months past, has advocatod recognition and inter vetition, and though in advance of popular sentiment, carries with it the great bulk of its party. It moves faster than Derby and D'Isracli. It will ultimately bear down all opposi tion, and force .hoso mon to spwak as it doos. The Horald does not assume to defend African slavery, but inveighs! utterly against Abolition madness. It is slowly divestins tho public mind of thoso prejudices which wo caused to exist by long submission to an infa mous system of navigation acts which, under tho old Union, cut us off from direct communication with all tho out er world. Wo wcro only known in Europe as represented through the Press of jSrcw York and Boston, nenco the prejudi ces against us, our "rebellion' and do mestic institutions, which prevail everywhere in tho old world. Siuce the war began, Europe has viewed us and this struggle, 6olely through tho distorted medium of tho Northern Press, and before the war, poor inno cent victims of Yankee shrewdness that we submitted to legislation, gov erning our coasting trade, by which, while the Yankees were plundering us they wcro at t'o same timo enabled to make the world beliovo that vo were a raco of hoi 1 -born monsters, proying upon tho flesh of Africans. If' this estimate of tho people of tho South be changed in Europe, wo shall owe the result mainly to tho Herald, a fact that our people should not here after forget. Gen. FoitaESf. 'Nlmporte,' writing to tho Mobile Advertiser and Register, from Tullahoma, tho 24th ult., says : Gen. Forrest has been again assign ed to an independent brigade, and he will now no longer report to Van Dorn. This is right; and now releaso Morgan from AV heeler's authority, and all will be wcfl, and bickerings between our cavalry leaders and their friends will cease, and tho old dash of Forrest and top wily skill of John Morgan will brighten the hopes of our partisan ex ploits. In Gen. Van Dorn's corps, the cav alry armed with sabres and pistols have boon brigaded and placed under Gen. Frank C. Armstrong, who can handle them if any one can. It is the intention that this brigado of light dragoons shall encounter tho Yankco regulars, who are similarly armed, and a tournament at close quarters at "tierce point" is looked for. Tho balaneo of tho command remain as formerly, mounted infautry, ono of the most useful branches of tho service A Remedy for Small Pox. The Gorman Reformed Messenger has re ceived a letter from a friend in China, in which it is statod that a great dis covery is reported to have been recent ly made by a surgeon of tho English ir-niv in China, in tho wav of an effect- v "'J I I ual cure for small pox. Tho modo of treatment is as tollows : When the nroefldinp fever is at its height, and j just before tho eruption appears, the chest is rubueu witn croton on ana tarter emotic ointment. This causes tho whole of tho erup tion to appear on that part of tho body, to the rehef of tho ro'at. It alsosecures a full and complete eruption, and thus prevents the disease from attacking the internal organs. This is said to be now tho established mode of treatment in tho English army in China by gen oral orders and is regarded as a perfect success. TELEGRAPHIC.! AsoTTKl I'KESS DISPATCH fcS.

FJCIIMOND.May 0. The Disp-itch issued an extra this P. M., giving first details of the battle of Chancel lorsville yet received. A correspondent says the fight was, in many respects, ono of the bloodiest 'of tho war- Our loss heavy, both in officers and men. The enemy had thrown up entrenchments and constructed obstacles which, after sovero fighting, was captured by our troops. Among tho prisoners is Brig. Gen. Hays, who commanded, a brigado in Couch's corps. Tho prisoners rcpresunt somo forty regiments, mostly foreigners. On the lower end of the line, where Gen. Early commanded, there wa3 some hard fighting. On Sunday afternoon Mary's Heights wcro carried and a number of Misissippians captured by tho enemy, six pieces of tho Washington Artitleiy taken at the same timo.

PvlCHMONI), May 7. A correspondent ot the Whig gives further details of the battlo of Chanccllorsvillo and Fredericksburg. Hooker accomplished the capture of Mary's Heights by a ruse. On Saturday evening ho sent a large forco towards his right, and rallied them during the night, and then threw them rapidly across tho river on pontoon bridges. Tho battle commenced at daylight. Parks dale's brigado checkod tho enemy for some time, assisted by Kelly's battery. They fought with clubbed muskets, but were forced to fall back by overwhelming numbers, not, however, ui.Lil the ground was covered with dead Yan kees. Our loss one hundred. All but two companies of tho "lSth Mississippi were cap tared. Col. Griflinand Adj't Stewart wcro killed, and Maj. Campbell wounded. All but seven of the first company of tho Washington Artillery wero taken prisoners including Capt. Squires. The Yankees showed no quarters to Rebels. Tho guns of the Washington Artillery wcro not retaken. Most of our casualties in the battles around Chanccllorsvillo consisted in slight wounds in the hands and arms. Few comparatively were killed. Tho loss of the enemy is equal to that of any previous battlo of tho war. The fields wcro literally strewn with their dead. Tho prisoners captured are mostly of the two years and nine months men, whoso term of service soon expires. They say they were put in front by Hooker at ovcry point. Tho main body of the enemy havinu been driven acrosr the river, remains hemmed in bv our army, and aro afraid to advance, fearing to attempt to reeros3. Gen. Lee has remarked that the present po sition of affairs in tho field is entirely to his satisfaction. Good New3 from Texas. Wo wcro gratified to meet in our office yesterday. Col. John J. Good. just from the Lono Star State. Tho account no gives ot affairs in Texas, is truly cheering and gratifying. Ho says tho wheat crop was never, in tho hisLory of the State, as prosperous and largo as tho present year. The great fear is, that thcro will not bo a suffi cient forco at home to gather the whole crop. To this end, Gen. Ma grudcr with his usual quick foresight, has requested all emigrants into Texas, this Spring, to repair at once, with thcT working forces, to the grain growing districts, and assist in reap ing tho Harvest. The corn crop is also large and in excellent order, with every prospect of a bountiful yield. lie thinks tho extravagant prices of tho speculators in that State will soon bo forced to yield to tho prcssuro of an abundant harvest. Col. Good contradicts tho reported capture of the Queen of tho West. It was doubtless a Yankee story, predi cated upon tho expected attack on tho Confederate forces, down Bayou Techc, tho 4th ult. Ho was thoro the 15th and 10th, nnd the Queen was then in our possession. Tho steamer on which tho. Colonel carao forward was by a new route ono that has not been navigated for fifteen or twenty years. 15y ibis chan nel ho brought out of Texas an ira mouse amount of bacon and other sup. plies, for Gen. Pcmberton's army. Col. Good, in addition to tho fine grain prospects, speaks confidently of there being a supply of all kinds of provisions in Texas, large enough to supply that State, Lousiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi, and go far towards feeding the people and armies of tho other Confederate Stales.

Meotings have been held daily, aud the attendanco has been largo. About thirty personB havo professed religion, most of whom have joined the church. Athens (Cra.) Pot. . fls-Wo do not wonder that tho Yankco soldiers aro reconciled -to be. coming "companions in. arms" with tho negroes. Their captured letters prove that they aro not eveu tho equals of tho negroes in tho point of intellect or morals. Tho Yankees, sinco their visits down South," having discovered that they are not considered fitto associate with Southern gentleman, have con' eluded to affiliate with their servauta.
