If the country companies fcnd rorriiiicnts which have panscd through Fhi'.i b'lphiu may serve as fair specimens, we should jiicbe thi report to be true. Af ter midnight ou Monday, they fired off (runs they nmivbcd through the streets of our city. AV saw several companies. They hail arrived in the city during the night, and had had nothing to cat since leaving Harris burr;. When we saw tlicin they were discontent ed, insubordinate, and swearing at the city, their officers and everything else. They had tach man a !af of bread stnek on his bay onet, that being the only way they could carry their next meal, as they had no knnp sacks, A blanket was lashed around the todv, and some had what seemed like a satchel hung at their side, which we tiok to bo cither a ponch for cartridges or a place to put a ration of meat. Others had no cart ridge pouch at all, and on being asked, pull--ed their cartridges out of their pockets, w hLh seemed to be stuffed full of them. One man told us that he had been furnished with no ration since Le left his home in Hunting don. A number of companies from Schuylkill looked as though taken fresh from the mines, bands and face being blacked with coal dust. Indeed all of them might be regarded f.iiiiy as the great unwashed, whether com ing from Schuylkill or anywhere else. As for uniform, we did not sec the slightest pre tence at it among any of these men. One German company had not even arms. K'veral companies had no drummers, and there was one regiment so completely disor ganized that the men could not tell the hnines of any of their officers except the CoLii.l. Inanities for the quarter-master seemed to l e fruitless, as there appeared to be none, and ret there were over six hun dred men iu lui regiment, commanded, too, by a meuilier of the Legislature. AVhat is the matter with the field officer who have charge of the troops from the in terior? They have either done nothing, or the wori is too mnch for them. There is something more serious on hand now than mere holiday parade. The task of mould ing theae raw bfolis into perfectly trained soldiers is one c:dcnMed to call forth the energies of even the most experienced offi cers. Fevali Solbikes. We see by our exchanges that number of ladies in Tennessee and Missis sippi Ih wives, daughter and sweet-bcarU of the soldiers w ho have gone into the service of the Confederacy are practicing with rifles and revolvers, preparing to render assistance -in tfie good cause, if noccsarr ; or, at least, to defend their homes. Some of the ladies m this com munity, we are informed, are following the good example, and expect shortly to be able to do more exerrtion With fire arms than they now do with tl cir rvn. A pper1-.! dispatch to the Charleston Courier sfstes that a bcautihil stfhl was witnessed on JJondar last th th passage tbe Clinch Bides trnm Aiigtit to Millen, at several points young and beautiful U'Wa. nnmbmng some Itti nr ricrtilr. were ranccd along tbe railroad. with rifle in tVir hand", and presented arms t the Clinch Rifle as they passed C'lnmlia Hon. Lewia T. WigfalL The following is an extract of a letter written from Charleston to the New York (Black Repub lican) Time : - ' - Mr. Wigfall'a exploit was as gallant and cUt alrous a any deed of modern time. Stationed on Morris Island, wher be had been on foot or in tbe saddle since tbe commencement of the at' tack, he no sooner saw the second barrack in flames and tbe Bag staff shot away, than be re solved to make his way to tbe fort and persuade Major Anderson to desut from a resistance man ifestly so unavailing. Despite the remonstrances of those around him, he embarked in a skiflf, and, with three negro oarsmen and a coxswain, pulled over to the Fort II was scarce a hundred yards from the hore, when they bailed to biro to return. "The Stars and Stripes were again flying." He literally turned "a deaf ear" to this call, and pushed on, brandishing bis sword, to which he had tied bis white handkerchief as a flag of truce. From the batteries of Fort Moultrie balls and shells were aimed at tbe skiff. The white flag was invisible at that distance, and the boat, only noticed when ncaring th Fort, if not Carrying reinforcements, had no business there. A thirty-two pound till struck tbe water within five yards of her, and was followed by a shell which came near proving fatal The Africans strained every nerve to get under the lee of the Fort, and the officers at the batteries, observing that the boat never swerved from her course, inferred that Wigfall mn$t hqtt been in it, thereby ac knowledging his more than Palmetto reckless ness and daring. On touching th wharf, the eccentric volun teer sprang ashore, and rinding the gate burst open by the flames, made his way round to an open port hole on the town side of the Fort, through which, with the aid of a loose piece of timber which he placed beneath it, he swung himself from a protruding gun into the embra sure. He stumbled, unchallenged, upon one of tbe garrison, who did not know where Major Anderson was. The fire was still raging, the heat intense, and the smoke insufferable. Shells were still exploding above, and from time to time within the Fort, from the mortars on Sulli van's Island. He worked his way up to a group of officers and men, standing near a casemate " Was Major Anderson there r" " No ! " Be fore the party bad recovered from their surprise at the apparition, Mnjor A nderson came up from the quarter Wigfull had just left He saw the sword and white handkerchief " Whom have I the honor of addressing f " "Colonel Wigfall, of (jeneraj Beauregard's stiff." " May I inquire your business with met" " I have como to say that you must strike your colors. Your position is untenable. You have defended it gallantly. It's madness to per severe in useless resistance. You cannot be reinforced. You have' no provisions. Your ammunition is nearly exhausted, and your fort is on fire." " On what terms do you summon me to sur render?" "Unconditional. Gen. Beauregard is an offi cer and a gentleman, lie will, doubtless, grant you all the honors of war; but tpeeiuli gnttia." " Well, I have done all that was possible to defend this fort." " You have. Haul down your flag." ' " But your people are still tiring into me." " Hoist a wliitc one. If you won't, I will, on my own responsibility." A shell burst in the ground within ten paces of them as they were speaking. Major Ander son invited the Kx-Scnator into a casemate; a white tlag was hoisted, the tiring ceased, and what is called "the battle of Fort Sumter" was over. All parties concur that Wigfall's performance was an act of bcrois.n nnd high humanity. You know nil the details of the capitulation, and have, doubtless, done justice to the delicacy and generosity of the rebel general in requiring no parole, besides according all tlio honors of war to the gallant defenders of Sumter, The Cost of the War to the Country. This war is not going to be much of a drain upon tlio countiy, for the reason that it will send little money out of it, ns would bo the case in a foreign war. A vast amount of money will be spent by the Government and individuals, to oc sure, but the country will not be poorer, for it will not go out of it It Will only be put in circulation among our own people. The "money market" will not bo mada "tighter," but "easier," if anything, than it was during the season of doubt and uncertainty through which we have passed. Indeed, we think it susceptible of demonstration, that the country, as a coun try, will make more money by the war than if pence hail been maintained. 1 his, for the rea son that the country is not spending any money. or very little sending comparatively none abroad for foreign purchases, and, by so saving it, making as mucn as would nave otherwise been spent. .So, when our next crop goes into the market all its proceeds will not be required to pay tbe country out of debt on I'nitcd States and other roreig!i account. Or course, that crop will go to market Great Britain w ill have it, even at the cost of a tussle with the feeble, distracted. and impoverished power of Lincoln. The in dustrial, and, to a di'grcc, tlio commercial inter est of the North, are bankrupted. And how 1 A the hottest abolition journals acknowledge, by the withdrawal of Southern trade. There fore, what that country has lost, this country has saved. The returns of the next crop, then, not hypothecated as usual, will be added to what we have already saved by not spending, and money will be most abundant in tbe country. This crop w ill scarcely be impaired, for, in the midst of war, our non-combatant laboring class will till the soil as usual. The Mexican war cost many millions of dol lars; and who made the money? The North made all, except what the soldiers spent in Mex ico for tortillat and affnadente. The North flourished, throve and fattened on that war. While the men of the South were pouring out their life-blood like water on the victorious fields of Mexico, the men of the North were filling army contracts, and gloating over their columns of profits in the safety of the counting room. Some of the most collossal fortunes of the North were accumulated, or founded, during the Mexican war. JJi7 Adrtrtiter. Stauch VERsrs Calomel. During the land sales on the Sunflower river, a certain land spec ulator, well acquainted with the country, was doirous of Mulling the other bidders, and pro ceeded as follows: Some two days before he reached tbe Sun flower district, he was observed to take a paper out of his pocket, and sprinkle a white powder from it, over the vegetables on his plate. ' The curiosity of the crowd soon became excited at this proceeding, and some one asked tbe old fel low what he was at "Well." says he, "I reckon 1 know more about this Sunflower country than any of yon, as I settled there once, and you fellows had bet ter begin taking your calomel soon, a I do, for if the fevers they have there once get you, good bye, John!" It ia needless to add that the other bidders rapidly became disgusted with that region of country, did not finish their trip, and left our friend to the enjoyment of a very profitable speculation, as well as of the vegetables and t'arch, which be bad substituted fur the calo mel. Statb bt thi Pkess. Never waa the free dom of the Pre more necessary for the public good than it is now, and if the people are wis they will take care that freedom suffers no abridgement A contemporary well say: A free press is the foundation of all freedom. It is the inspiration, as well as the recourse, of true liberty. It is at once tbe shield and the sunshine of popular tbongbt ; flinging off th poisoned arrow of despotism, and making free ana elastic, with genial warmth, the social and political current of the cmnmnnitr. It is the foundation stone and bell tower the very but tress and flaj-slaff' of a free fabric. To meddle with a free prr-wi shows not so mnch iznoranre on the part of the meddler, a truculent f-ar and wilful error. None bnt bla tant cowards will prevent the free expression of BDimon- and those w ho would not down or CO- ieree a newspaper, proclaim to tbe world that fhey fear if a power or iti truth.

It i proponed to estnblish, it Oiford, Misximippi, a weekly journal, under the loreL'oing title, and to Is sue tba first number ou or about the 1st day of June, 1800. The Intixliosscib will not be the organ of any man, or of any clique or combination of individuals: but it will endeavor faithfully to reprcavut the view and sentiments of the community of Oxford and La fayette county, and to uphold and foster all the great Interests educational, agricultural, material, social and moral wilb which the highest welfare of our pro nlo ia identified. Tbe fundiuaeiital doctrine of the Plate Right school of Democracy will constitute the guide by which the political course of the paper will be con trolled) and while tbe Intklliusmckb will susuin Southern institutions, did the cause of the rViuth, with energy and real, it ill do so calmly, and only by rca son and argument rcmemlici ine that there ia a icol which "is not according to knowledge," and whose only weapons ar empty declamation and appeals to popular ignorance, puwum, and prejudice. It will carocsti ysupfiort the principle amlorpitiituticiu of the Democratic party ; but, at the same time, it will be courteous to those of our fellow-citizen who ir po litically opposed to It ; nor will it descend, in any case, to personal abuse and vilification. The Editor lift saw tlio liclit in Tennessee, but wa brought to llissiivippi while he was yet an un conscious infant.

Nothing will appear in the columns of the Intelli OKxcia which the F.ditor doi-s not believe to be true; for it is his purpose to establish for the paper a repu tntion, both at home and abroad, which ahull cause it every statement of fact to he implicitly relied oni The Editor will studiously avoid all controversies, as far as the some may be avoided with propriety by one whose duty it will be to call tilings by their right names, when he speak of them at all.
