of the. 2yd, claims u victory in Northern
Georgia fur Urugg, mid i-'nys : Wc sup
niifsoxullatinn at the buttle, at what yet
remains to be dune, and the possibility of
loosing all that has been gaiiii'd by u I'uil
ore to coiupleui the vnrlf. Situated ns
ftorserans is, victory tliat iliw not disperse
und ciiplure his whole at my is a lost oppor
tunity. If lie is permitted to hold Chaiui
nonc.ti our victory will be without profit,
mid wo havo only to mourn thut so many
brave men have died in vain, lioseciuus
must 'not oolv be beaten in battle, but must
be despoiled or driven iroin 1'Jast 1 innea-ei'.
otherwise Km battle litul ns well not been
fought. If thin Ptronglmhl is not wrenched
Irom him now, it will hardly bo donu here
ufler. If he holds it. lie holds a point fioui
which ho may at uny nioinent strike u blow
at the very itals of the Conredei ucy. I Ie
holds a region pestilent with disiifli-ction,
which needs only the pieseueo of u Yankee
army to ripen into full-blown treason. He
'holds a country tliut nnut produce wheal
for our unity, nitre for our powder-mills,
and iron for many of our iminufueturing
eslublishmenip. l'os?ession of thut country
is un indippensiblo necessity to us. It is n
prize for which we will contend until we
have won it. We can but rejoice, with
Sear und trembling, over what has been
done, and should our arm v win it, it

New York, 2Cth, A special Wnshing
ton dispatch to the Times suys : It appears
now thut till tluec oi' Kosrcrans' grand (ii
visions wero engaged in the late battle, two
of which were driven back n considerable
distance. Rosicians in dispatches imputes
the, loss of the battle to disobedience: of or
ders by McCook, who lusted to occupy nn
important position unsigned him. Had he
done so, Uo.-sicraiis' opinion is, the battle
woald havo resulted in n uplendid Union
victory. 11 v extending his force too much
the rebels were enabled to polctrute out
lines. Ureal anxiety in the army is enter
taiued for thu safely of Iiiinwide. In or
t'er to reinforce ltoecrans, thu only mfe
plan would bo to cross thu Tennessee river
und niouiiluins or pclietratu to some of the
gaps, and move down behind tlio mono
'tuiiiR. The opinion of military nun seems
to lie if he nttejnpts to move down this
fi.de of the river ho will run greul rusk of
being cut oiT.
Washington, 26b. Gen. Hooker las

ties will find ample scope.
Washington, 25th. A telegram from
RnsrcraiiB last night, the 24th, says he
made a recounoisriincc in force along the
enemy's line, and found them in lorce. The
enemy tint not resist the advance of our re
counoiteriiig column, which returned to
quarters, alter having accomplished the ob
ject of the move, which proved important.

A general spirit of cheerfulness prevails
in Washington. Tlio rebel iirmy has not

Special dispatches to thu Pot from tlio
unity ol the t'otoinue, says tnc army is to
motion, transports leaving with great ac
tivity, und it is expected that a considera
ble body of forces will embark with us lit
tle delay us po-sible. Their destination
can only be conjectured. In the meantime
there is equal activity in forwurdiug troops
in unolher direction. The Government
has lake:) posessiou of the IJaltiinoic und
Ohio railroad, and no travel fur civil pur
poses is allowed.
The latest ndvice from the main body
of the army under HuriHidu was at Athens
in East Tennessee. J J is advance was at
Clcavflaud. 20 miles from Chattanooga,
on the E-tst Tcnnc&cc and Virginia Rail
roati. The Steamer ICahnwba, from New Or
leans, Sept. 17th, brings Intelligence that
the troops which wero engaged in the Sa
bine Puss e.sK'(lition hud been disembark
ed, ami were to compOM! n part of the ex
pedition overland toTe.xes. On the depar
ture of the steamer, troops were moving
towards Ilrnslieur City and Rerwlcks liny,
as fast us they could be forwurded. The
force that was originally to go by that
route will thus be so much stroimcr ns to
render thu expedition a formidable one.
The occupation of Texas by our troops Is
regarded in New Orleans us a fixed fact.

In regard to thu sinking of the rebel

Bcrtnudu (7a:rte that she was mistaken for
a Feieral vessel and llr'il Into by Fort

there were lillO persons on boaid nt thu

Boston, 2lilh. -Tlio steamer Attalla from
Galwciy lilth arrived. Tribunal of com
ineice at Bordeaux has tried the caso involv
ing tho question whether tho Florida is u
p rat o or privateer. It was decided that
ilui had not c.ceeded belligerent right or in
curred llie repioach of piracy. Application
has been made at the Matx'lb'es tribunal of
commerce by owners of part of thu cargo of
tho V B. Nu-h for an authorization losiezu
thu Florida at Brest until the claim of 101).
0011 iuinces was settled. Authorization
granted. Mr. Slldell had gonu to Brest lo
arrange the ulfiiir. The Parris of tho
lilth, believes Itself entitled to stale that

ihu seizuru of thu Florida, in concqiionou
of an uidor from Paris issued, as tho 1ijh

Lovaltv. Theio is no law for loyalty
any moie than among the ancient, there
was no law against ingratitude. As the
latter was u crime so base thai to legislate
against it was deemed idle, so the former is
a virtue so grand that legislation can no
more compel its practice than Congress
can constrain men lo be Christians.
In timi s of peace, a man may be a good
citizen who abides by the constitution and
the laws, but in days like these, of public
peril and disaster, he is not a good citizen
who docs not go beyond all written codes,
come out from' behind tho pitiful shelter of
all legal enactment nnd provision, nnd
trampling all Fellishness und coweidico und
attributes of his meaner nature under his
feet, sav to the laud that necdo him, here
nm 1 ami the treasure that thou hast given
wiv' , , .
It is n sort of inspiration loyalty is
that lifts weak men, timid men, but baso
men never, up to the stature of giunls and
the spirit of martyrs, and makes of
nuiot uclfjfhbor. fcomutiini'S, the " Gi
" Great-
heart " of tho nge.
It requires a grand manhood to be loyal;
wo were about to f.ay loyal men, like Hue
poets, mo born, not made; nod so they
uro ; they have been born out of the dark
hour mid the cloud, and havo gore up in
chariots of lire.

A Conscript's Epistle to Jeff
The following quaint epistle hos been
furnished for publication by a member of
the Mountain Rifles, who picked it up in u
deserted rebel camp on the Chowan river,
about thirty miles from Wintoii, N. C,
while out on a scouting expedition lust
spring. Tho letter was uddressctl in this
wise :
Read, if you want to, you thieving ca1p

States mail enrriers, uddrcssed us It fIiuII be
lo yourself, 0 Jeff, Red Jacket of the Gull,
and Chief ol the Six Nations more or
less. He writes on a stump of n shivered
monarch of the forest, with the ' pine tree
wailing nroiuul him," und " Endymion's
plunet rising on the air." To you, 0 Cos
zar of all Chivalry und Khun or Cotton
Tui Inry, liu nppeals for the privilego of
seeking, on his own hook, a land less free a
home among tho hyenas of the North.
Will you not halt your bravo columns, und
stay your gorgeous career for u thin spuce
and while un udmiring world takes a
brief gaze ut your glorious und God-lor-silken
cause, pen for tho happy furlough
without end ? Do so, and mail it, if you
please to that city the windy, wandering,
Wigrall didn't winter in, culled, for short,
The Eltviun winds sweeping down the
defiles of tho Old Dominion, ami over the
swamps of Suffolk, come moaning through
the pines or tho old State laden with tho
music, und siirh themselves uwuy into sweet
Founds of silence to the fur off South.
Your happy conscript would go to the fur
away North whence the winds come, und
leave you tu reap tlio winriwino, wiiu no

It is with intense und multifariously
proud satisfaction that he gazed for llie
last time upon our holy fl.ig thut symbol
und sign of un ndored triuiiy cotton, nig
gers nnd chivulry. Ho slill sees it in the
little camp on the Chowan, lied to the
peak of his palmetto pole, and floating out
over the boundless Confederacy, und reviv
ed relics of ages gone, banner of our king
of few days mid full of trouble. And that
polo in its tapering uprightness typifying
some of tho grand beauties of Its national
ity; its peak pointing hopefully Inward
tho high tropical stars, und its biggest cud
run into the giouud. Relic und pole
goodbye. Tis best the conscript gois;
hit claim to chivulry has gone before him.
Jk-hind, he leaves the legitimate chivalry
of this unbounded nation centered in the
illfoitimatusoii of u horse-thief.

mid he is done done gone.
Elevated by their sufferings aiul suffra
ges to the highest office in the gill of a
grcut nnd exceedingly free people, you

old grief at your downfall, so too will they
sink under the calamity of nn exquisite
joy when you shall have reached thai emi
