No more should the tongue of the villago bell Give forth its cheerful strain, Till freedom and peace together shall dwell In this lair sunny land again.

Interview witii the French Minister.? ' We understand, savs tlie Richmond A'saminer, i " t that yesterday, Dr. Lannone, the representative of 30,000 French residents of Louisiana, held an interview with M. le Conite llenri i Mcrcier, the French Minister to the United States, who arrived in tliis city, from Washington, on Wednesday. The result of the in" O ' J terview we have not ascertained; but it is very probable that matters were represented in their true light to the visiting minister, respecting the war, its causes and policy. Dr. Lcmoine is an enthusiastic sympathizer with the Soutln and is looked up to by those whose sentiments he speaks with confidence and veneration. The minister also had an interview 011 ves tcrdav with Mr. Benjamin, and that for two hours Mr. B. spoke French with the utmost fluency. The objects of the French Minister's visit have not definitely transpired ; but it is said that outside of his oflici;il communications he has expressed great interest to ascertain what commercial treaties the Confederate Government was disposed to make with France. T? ** riioji the \v est.?j-))' a private letter we learn that General Kirbv Smith, with ajargc force, is at Bridgeport, Jackson county, Ala., 17 miles from lluntsviilc, where he will establish headquarters for the present. It was to this place that our forces, 2,000 strong, retreated, when the Yankees entered lluntsviilc. A gentleman just escaped from the latter town gives the very pleasing intelligence that they have found no sympathizers of their cause there, and the ladies are very naughty and indignant to both Federal officers and soldiers* As our forces now have possession of Stevenson, and are being largely reinforced, it is believed that the Yankees will soon evacuate Iluntsville, as a point too much exposed to suit their purposes. General Smith is rebuilding a bridge across the Tennessee river, destroyed by our forces, and he will then, no doubt, make an attempt to form a junction with Gen. Beauregard?A tlanta Com mon wealth. Railroad Accident.?A destructive smashup occurred on the Atlanta and West Point Railroad, four miles South of Newnan, on the night of the 15th inst. A large number of soldiers were on board, en route for Corinth, one of whom was killed (a Tennessean) and some twenty-five wounded, but not dangerously. Nine of the front cars were completely wrecked. Gen. Prentiss in Mobile.?Among the prisoners in our city is (Jen. Prentiss, who act" cd the dog completely while here, and whose condition as a prisoner saved him?and barely saved him?from chastisement, lie probably expected to l>e lionized and sympathized with, j and gave vent to his disappointment in abusive tirades against the South generally and South, ern women in particular. His insolence rendered it necessary to threaten him with close confinement.?Mobile Advertiser. From Tcmiv^coaiid Nortli Alabama. Lynchburg, Va., April 18.?The Knoxvillc (Tcnn.) Register has a dispatch dated Bridgeport, April I6th, which states that neither Decatur nor Decatur Bridge, have been taken; and that there are only 3000 Yankees Jit.

The gnn-hoat Lookout was not taken, but is at Guntcrsvillc, with 2000 sacks of Government corn and a large lot of saltpetre on board untouched. A man just from Nashville says that the enemy were removing their stores, sick and cannon over the river to Edgefield. A gentleman from War Trace says that Col. Stearns killed 75 of the enemy in a late fight, and wounded many. Only two bridges were burnt on the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. Our pickets went to Kellefonte, Ala., last night, but saw no enemy. From tine best ininformation, the enemy has gone back to i 111111 < evil 111 m-m mi CO ? I ilVi Doubtful. The New York Herald, of the 14th, which published a list of what was captured on Island No. 10 and its vicinity, gives the following account of how the Island was captured: The capture of Island No. 10, with the artillery, munitions of war, steamboats, and troops which defended it, turns out to be of far greater importance than it was deemed to be at first. The loss to the rebels is immense. "The manner in which it was accomplished by the two gunboats runniug the gauntlet of the batteries, and by the digging of a canal of twelve miles, a large portion of which was made through heavy timber, which it was necessary to cut by band four feet under water, reflects the highest glory upon the military genius and indomitable resolution of our troops. This victory clears the way to Memphis, the only obstructions of any account being Fort Randolph and Fort Pillow, which can be easily disposed of. Memphis captured, the descent to New Orleans can not be resisted. The prisoners and property captured bv (Iei.? Pope and Com. Foote, at and in the vicinity of Island No. 10, are summed up as follows: aiajor General 1; .brigadier Gi-rerals, 3; Colo nek, 10; Lieutenant-Colonels, and Majors, 15; Captains, 50; Lieutenants, G4; Second Lieutenants, 84; privates, 5,500; cannon, 1125: arms, 10,000; steamboats, 10; floating battery, 1; liorses and mules, 2,000; wagons, 1,000; besides forty thousand dollars worth of provisions and ammunition unestimated. The regiments captured were the 40th, 4Gth and 55th Tennessee; 3d, 11th and 12th Arkansas; the 1st Alabama,and the New Orleans Pelican Guard. LATER AND MORE CORRECT ACCOUNT OF THE AROVK. The papers of the enemy contain Commodore Foote's ollicial account of the occupation of Island No. 10, on the 8th instant. From this it appears that General Pope had succeeded in crossing the Mississippi below the Island, whereupon our forces evacuated the Island and the works on the neighboring Tennessee shore. Seventeen of our ofliccrs and 3(58 privates, besides some sick soldiers and employees, were ! taken by the enemy. Also 70 pieces of cannon and 4 steamers. , i From Leesiu rg.?Accounts from Leesburg state that the Yankees have taken possession of church, hall, court house, banks, etc., tried to force citizens to take the oath ; sent a soldier to work with negroes at a wagon hauling 1 stone; stolen and robhed team*, houses, etc.; i 1 A . I ? * oiu me people walked around the square ra- 1 thcr than go under the Yankee Hag. i The Northern papers say that among the prizes captured by the Federal soldiers at Fort Donelson, was a riflle said to bo woitk one thousand dollars. Its breech is inlaid with the finest gold. It belonged to a hotel keeper in ( Memphis, and was won by him at a horse I: race. c Attack oil Fort Macon, >f. C. Wilmington, N. C., April 18.?A private letter received here, dated April 17, says that the enemy attack Fort Macon last Saturday, and fighting has been going on for two days. Col. White, who is in command ot the fort, sent out a part of his men on the beach, and found 300 Yankees. They killed fifteen of our men; the balance then retreated to the fort. Col. White fired canister at the enemy, killing a large number of them. The enemy have built a battery two miles from the fort, on the beach, and planted mortars and large sized siege guns. Eleven largo ships are outside The enemy have sent to Newborn for gun-boats to operate in the snnni) The enemy is committing: everv imaginable * o ^ c? outrage in Carteret and Onslow counties, N. C. The fort had not been taken on Wednesday last. ? Another Skirmish on Wliitomarsli. A number of reports were current last night with regard to an affair with the enemy on Whit marsh yesterday. From the best authority we learn the following facts, and regret that it was impossible to obtain details: It appears that late in the afternoon the enemy landed on tne island from their barges and attempted a reconnoissance in force. They had not proceeded far before they encountered a large Confederate picket that had been sent over from the 13th Georgia. Our troops attaeked them vigorously, and charged upon them, when the Yankees fell back and again took their barges. We had a few killed and wounded on our side, and the loss of the enemy is said to be considerable, though no particulars have transnired. When last heard from our picket was maintaining its ground and well supported The enemy are evidently seeking a place, for a battery to bear on our works on the main. ? Savannah Republican, 17th inst. A friend who arrived on Thursday from Savannah, gives us some additional particulars which he considers trustworthy. The attacking party of Confederates was the 13th Georgia Regiment, Col. Marcollus Douglas, who took advantage of a good position on a bluff bank. At the first lire the Captain and several others on the Yankee gunboat were brought, and finding it impossible to use their ordnance, the Yankees surrendered, about 200 in number, with six small pieces of ordnance, and other supplies. This is another encouraging instance of what may be done with small arms against boats.? Charleston Courier. From the Border.? AVe learn that a gentleman from Nashville states that the Louisville Journal had declared for peace, that the further prosecution of the war could only result in devastation and unnecessary expenditure of money and blood. It. is also stated that T .itwol n'c emancipation policy had coinpletiy revolutionized Kentucky. w ? Further, that the order for Indiana troops to quell the rebellion of the Kentucky troops did result in the firing of the latter upon the former, and the killing and wounding of four hundred of the latter. The Yankees admit the loss of eighty-six rjuns in the battle at Corinth, of four thousand killed and wounded and eight thousand prisoners?twelve thousand in all. Atlanta Commonwealth, April 10. - ? "A Weak Invention of the Enemy."?The ullet-nroof vests of tbo. Y?nL-ono? ? .cntion?did not protect them at Shiloh, from bayonet charges of the brave Southrons, who net them there face to face. A number of die dead found on the battle-field are said to mve had on those patent vests. Truelv, "a veak invention of the enemy." We learn that Gov. Johnston, of Kentucky, under the Provisional Government of that state,; was wounded and taken prisoner by the sncmy at the battle of Shiioh.
