It was confidently affirmed last evening that
the Monitor had reached Bocketts, and that
the city of Richmond is at its mercy.
An intelligent prisoner, captared by Gen.
McCliixut, states that the rebel loss in
killed, wounded and missing is 30,000, and
that one-third of these fell in tbe battle of
The friends of the Union may dismiss their
fears about the safety of the Federal army at
Richmond. Tbe city is certain to fall into
our hands, and that within a very few days.
A shrewd French philosopher ence re
marked that, in nine hundred and ninety-nine
cases out of a thousand a very generally
accepted idea is certain to turn out a mere
"popular fallacy ;" "because," said he, "it is
found adapted to the greater number, whereas
truth is perceived but . by the few." The
opinions entertained by our revolutionists on
the effects of the late battles near Richmond
have frequently recalled the aphorism to oar
mind, during the last two days ; and the more
we observe the secessionizing rebels of Mem
phis, and the more we read of thtae battles
and ponder on their fore-runners, the more
are we impressed with the truth of the
Frenchman's remark.
We perceive, on the most casual investiga
tion, that when the war passed in its duration
the term of three months, it became a war of
resources ; we also see, and see clearly, that
the leader of the rebellion are now aware of
the fact, and behold no hope of escape from
utter discomfiture, save in a removal of the
theater of the war, an endeaver to make up in
the energy of crime what they lack in resour
ces and the calmness of true courage. It has
become patent to all thinking men that the
establishment of the would-be Confederacy
cannot be secured within its own limits, and
that the war must be carried beyond them to
save rebellion from the eradication that threat
ens it
An infusion of desperation into tbe troops,
the abandonment and rifling and desolation of
Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee,
the concentration of all ; 1 forces from
tbe Mississippi andSheL.. valleys, in the
hope to rout McClxllak .-, .Vbn the road
to invasion, is the natural sequence of this
correct reasoning. "We have seen its opera
tions, and now lehold its failure. The States
named have been incited by the revolutionary
oppression into strong and increasing opposi
tion to a rebellion for which no tangible cause
can be assigned, and are now under the
national flag, growing more and more recon
ciled to the right, to their ewn interests and
to the organized freedom of the central Gov
ernment, under which they were born.
While such have been the consequences in
the border Slates, the object for which they
were first misled, and afterwards abandoned,
has not been attained. McClkllak has been
delayed, not routed, nor even decisively beaten,
and now with much appearance of truth,
claims a victory wrenched from the very jaws
of defeat ; and Washington and the Maryland
jewel are as far from the hand of rebellion as
ever. A new call evokes a new army for the
North, if it be found needed, but rebellion had
there its last armies of strength; it possesses
nothing on which it can rest for reorganisa
tion, or from which it can draw new vitality.
Cabinned, cribbed, confined within ever nar
rowing limits, through which it has forever
failed to break, it can only repeat at Richmond
its evacuating policy, which, like the chronic
diarrheas generally attendant on debility, is
certain to end in dissolution. The candle has
shot its last ray, and it vanishes into eternity
to light at the throne the recording angel's
narrative of political turpitudes and unscrup
ulous crimes, unparalleled since the days of

non-taking of unattacked Richmond will turn
the rebels into legitimate sovereigns, and for

made the most of the prominence of the negro
in the legislation of Congress. He charged
the abolitionists with the repulses ot McUel

of the States, and would be in Columbus to

imminent, and that Secretary Seward's mis

He had a ereat deal to say of the Conatitu

elsewhere the correspondence between the
Governors of the loyal States and the Presi
dent, calling into the field an additional force
of three hundred thousand men, " so as to
bring this unnecessary and injurious civil war
to a satisfactory and speedy conclusion." We
can but wish that the call had been made
earlier, but it is not too late. The greatest
blunder of the War Department was in stop

had been perfected, the recruiting stations

A Mouestcl Tragedt. Private Wallace
M. Sterling, of the 28th New York regiment,
was recently a prisoner at Winchester, and
was released on parole.' He accidently shot, a
tew evenings since, his own sister, an estima
ble younr lady, about twenty years of age.
The sad accident occurred at the residence of
bis father, at West Gaines, a short distance
from Eagle Harbor, New York. It seems
that he was in the act of showing the family
the musket exercise, and the manner in which
the'disciplined soldiers used his arms. The gun
used to illustrate the exercise had been loaded
by his brother, unknown to Wallace, and ac
cidentally went off while in his hands, the en
tire charge penetrating the head of his sister,
who was standing but a few feet distant. She
feu to the floor and died almost immediately.
Arrested. The Nashville Union, of the
1st says : The notorious Rev. C. D. Elliott, a
literary qaack from Ohio, who has been keep
ing a sort of boarding school for young ladies,
in this place, and for , some time past a red
mouthed rebel, was arrested and sent to the
penitentiaryyesterday for treason, to be sent
oouth. .Last winter, at a prayer meeting, in
one of our churches, thi3 blasphemer prayed
uod Almighty to whiten the hills and val;
leys of the South with the bones cf the men
who fought to preserve the Union! He ought
to be dressed in piebald breeches and set to
picking rock. Dr. Cheatham, superintendent
of the State Lunatic Asylum, was also arrested
yesterday on the same charge, and sent to the
penitentiajy. He will be shipped to Dixie.

fight was brought about kj generalship ; but
this success was not neutralized by the second

more than that both parties are strong enough
to shed each other's blood, and weak enough
to do it.
The Daily News treats the affair as a deci
ded victory for the Nationals. It regards it
as a good illustration of the soundness of
the British policy of refraining from media
tion. The Star and Telegraph also claim a vic
tory for the Nationals.
The Morning Post argues that the Nation
als were worsted, and says no one can read
McClellan's dispatch without being con
vinced that it tolls a story of surprise and
The Herald thinks McClellan's plans dis
turbed, and perhaps spoiled, by the vigilanco
of the enemy.
'The Times, in a second article, thinks such
battles cannot fail to have a strong effect on
the Northern mind, and shows the difficulties
ef the task undertaken.
Every month shows the impossibility more
clearly of restoring the Union by force of
arms. It hopes, if hot weather suspends hos
tilities, that tbe voice of reason will be heard.

on our right was a desperate affair, in which
the rebels lost 5,000 men. Our loss was heavy.
Gen. Stoneman being cut off from the right
had retreated to Yorktown, and arrived at
Fortress Monroe.
It is further stated that on his left. General
McClellan, with severe fighting, had passed
through White Oak swamp with 40,000 men
and 100 pieces of artillery, to secure an advan

On Saturday evening last Mrs. Julia Smith.1
wife of Geo. B. Smith, Eq, of the firm of
Smith & Cannon, and a sioter of the latter
member of , the arm, was most fearfully
burned, so severely, in fact, that at the time of
writing this article we are momentarily ex
pecting to hear of her death. Herself, her
husband, and her brother where in the garden
picking strawberries, when her father, who has
been suffering many years with a cancer, called
her into the house to have it dressed. She
usually prepared the salve which was applied
to his cancer with a lamp filled with alcohol.
As the spirit was low in the lamp, she took a
half gallon can and endeavored to fill it while
the lamp was burning. She had scarcely
commenced the operation when the flame
communicated to the interior of the vessel,
bursting it with a loud report, and filling the
room with flame. Her dress and that of a
servant girl caught on fire, as a matter of
course. The latter ran out of doors, and was
met by Mr. Smith, who promptly extinguished
the flames which was consuming her gar
ments, but severely burned his hands in doing
so. Charlie Cannon rushed in the house, and
found his sister with her mouth and eyes closed
awaiting her doom." He immediately threw a
leather bed upon her, and with some difficulty
smothered the devouring element.
It is feared that the assistance came too late,
for she was fairly roasted. Her hands, arms,
face, neck, breast, and a portion of her stomach
were burned most cruelly. Fen cannot de-
acribe nor tongue tell her terrible sufferings,
yet she bore them without a moan, and main
tained ner self-possession even while all else
was wild confusion. She was naarvelously
patient, and so thoughtful a3 to direct the phy
sician to attend to her husband before he did
anything further for her. " - ' -

Scrofula, or King's Evil,
is a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
weak, and poor. Being in the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
in disease on any part of it. No organ is free
from its attacks, nor is there one which it may
cot destroy. The scrofulous taint is variously
caused by mercurial disease, low living, dis
ordered or unhealthy food, impure air, filth
and filthy habits, the depressing vices, and,
above all, by the venereal infection. What
ever be its origin, it is hereditary in the con
stitution, descending " from pare; iia to children
unto the third and fourth generation indeed,
it seems to be the rod of Him who says, I
will visit the iniquities of the lathers upon
their children." ' j
Its effects commence by deposition from the j
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
the lungs liver, and internal organs, is termed .
tubercles; in the glands, swellings; and on
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor
ruption, which genders in the blood, depresses
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
tions not only suffer from scrofulous com
plaints, but they have far less power to with
stand the attacks of other diseases; conse
quently, 'vast numbers perish by disorders
which, although not scrofulous in their nature,
arc still rendered fatal ly this taint in the
system. . Most of the consumption which de
cimates the human family has its origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination ; and many
destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain,
and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or
are aggravated by the same cause.
One quarter of all our people are scrofulous ;
their persons are invaded by this lurking in
fection, and their health is undermined by it.
To cleanse it from the system wc must renovate
the blood by an alterative medicine, and in
vigorate it by healthy food and exercise.
Such a medicine we supply in ,
Compound Extract of Sarsaparilla,
the most effectual remedy which the medical
skill of our times caa devise for this every
where prevailing and fatal malady. It is com
bined from the most active rcmedials that have
been discovered for the expurgation of this foul
disorder from the blood, and the rescue of the
system from its destructive consequences.
Hence it should be employed for the cure of
not only scrofula, but also those other affoc-;
tions which arise from it, such as liia'PTjVE,
and Skin Diseases, St. Anthony's Fibe,
"Rose, or Ebtsipelas,' Pinpir.s, Pustii.er,
Blotches, Blains and Boils, TrMoits.TErrniV

Rheumatism, Stthilitic and MLftcrRiAT. Di-'
eases, Dbopst, Dtspepsia, DiiistLirc, ar.d,
indeed, all Cojstlaints arising fecm Vitia-'
T3D or Impure Blood. The popular ! belief
in impurity of the blood " is founded in truth,'
for scrofula is a degeneration of the blood. The
particular purpose and virtue of this Sarsnpa
rill? is to purify and regenerate this vital fluid,
' without which sound health is impossible in
contaminated constitutions.
' Af&fs Cathartic Pills, -
"for all the purposes cf a family phvsso,'
are so composed that disease within the Tange of
their action can rarely withstand or erade them ;
j Their penetrating properties search, and cleanse,
and invigorate every portion of the human organ
ism, correcting its diseased action, and restoring
its healthy vitalities. As a consequence of there
properties, the invalid who is bowed down with
pain or physical debiiitT is astonished " to find his
: health or energy restored by a remedy at once ".so

"" So wide i tbe field of its usefulness and so nu
merous are the cases of its cures, that almost
every section of country abounds in persons pub-.
licly'known, who have been restored from alarming
and even desperate diseases of the lungs by its
use. When once tried, its superiority ever every
other medicine of its kind is too apparent to escape
observation, and where its virtues are known, the
public no longer hesitate what antidote to employ
for the distressing and tfanjrerous atiections of the
pulmonary organs that are incident to our climate.

From the CiuclDuan cntuM-routl, 3 "
Cikcikkati, July 2, 1862.
Eds. Commercial:" Knowing the main
facts concerning Gen. Dumont's expedition to
East Tennessee to be as given by T. C G, I
take the liberty cf correcting the corrector in
this morning's paper. I have no inclination to
discredit the performance of the Third Minne
sota, but could wish your correspondent bad
mentioned that the "thirty-eight miles in four
teen hours" (made by famous regiment) was
made by riding in the wagons of the 69th and
T4th Ohio, which were taken from the latter
for that purpose, to the discomfort of those
troops, whose rations, blankets and other bag
gage were unceremoniously pitched out and
and mostly lost. The Utter troops marched
over the same route. . . ;
The advance guard (Co. D) of the 69th
Ohio, to which I know T. C. C. belongs, was
within eight miles (not twenty), and, I think,
within sight of Fikeville, at the tim the
countermarch was ordered. The Ohio troops
engaged the expedition (vuorumpars fui) bore
the largert share of the fatigues and priva
tions which were really great. Considering
the rawness, they deserved high praise, and re
ceived it fcom Gen. Dumont, for their part in
that remarkable expedition. .. .i, L. W.
LoKDOjr akd Parisian Fashions. The
fashion ef wearing white sleeves with colored
dresses has lately revived. These white
sleeves are always made of transparent mate
rials, such as tulle, crape, gauze, etc., and they
are most appropriately adapted to dresses of
silk or satin. 1 bey require to be confined at
the wrists with ornamental bracelets. We
lately saw a bracelet of gold, representing a
serpent, the head cf which was thickly studded
with emeralds, rubies, and sapphire. This
serpent, which twined around tho arm three
times, confined the fulness of the sleeve in a
very graceful manner. The brooch for fasten

this through the natural chaiuiels of tho body
by an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the
vitiated h!nt whenever you find its impuritifs
bursting through the skia ia pimples, eruptions
or sore ; cleanse it when you find it is ob
structed and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse it
1it'w it is foul, and your feelings will tell
you when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing the blood. Keep the
blood healthy, and all is well ; but with this
pabulum of life disordered, there can be no
lasting health. Sooner or later something
must ro wrong, and the great machinery o
life is disordered or overthrown. ,
Sarsaparilia has, and deserves much, the
reputation, of accomplishing thee ends. Hut
tho world has been egregiously deceived by
preparations of it. partly because the drug
alone has not all the virtue that is claimed
for i; but mote beoause many preparations,
pretcnuuig ,to b 'concentrated extracts of it,
contain but little of the virtue of Sarsaparilla,
or any thing else.
During late years the public have been mis
led by large bottles, pretending to give a quart
of Extract of Saraparilla for one dollar. Most
of these hare been frauds upon the rick, for
they not only contain little, if any, Sarsapa
rilla, but often no curative properties whatev- -er.
. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed the use of the various extracts of
Sarsaparilla which flood the market, until the
name itself is justly despised, and has become'
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
we call this compound Sarsaparilla, and intend
to supply sueh a remedy as shall rescue the
name -from the load of obloquy which rests
upon. it. And we: think vre have ground for
.believing it has virtues wluch are irresistible
by the ordinary run of the diseases it is intend
od to cure. In order to secure their complete
, eradication from the system, the remedy should
be judiciously taken according to directions on
the bottle. ... ..... , ; . ;,

The system of guerrilla warfare now being
prosecuted by some troops organized undei
authority of the so-called Southern Confed
eracy, "and others without such authority,
being so pernicious to tne welfare of the
community where it is carried on, and it be
ing within the power of the community to
suppress this system, it is ordered that wher
ever loss is sustained by the Government,
collections shall be made, by seizure of a
sufficient amount cf personal property, from
persons in the immediate neighborhood sym
pathizing with the rebellion, to remunerate
the Government for all loss and expense of
tion. ' .
Persons acting as guerrillas without organi

them from private citizens, are not entitled to
the treatment of prisoners of war when
caught, and will not receive such treatment
