Jpitigbflit firgiufeit BY COALE Ss> BARR Friday, Oct. 3, 186 S. We have nothing definite or exciting from the armies tbis-week. Our army is now mass ed on this side of the Potomac, and it is con fidently stated that Gen. Lee has 20,000 more men under his command, than at any former period. Harper's Ferry was evacuated by our army immediately after the battle of Sharpsburg, and the enemy now occupy that place and Williamsport. A portion of our army is at Winchester. An important move ment is hourly expected. Mr. Crocker, Chief of the Army Intelligence Office, has returned to Richmond with full lists of our casualties in the recent battles. In the battles at and near Manassas, our losses did not exceed 5,000, and in Maryland less than 7,000. We have good news from East Tennessee. We learn from good authority that the people are volunteering by hundreds. Lincoln's last proclamation will give us an army of 50,000 men. The rumor that Gen. Marshall has blockad ed the Ohio below Cincinn...

Dirgiumn. BY COALE £c BARR "rridayToet- 10 » I©OSB.^ Thos. A. R. Welson, Esq. See in our columns to-day, the addnvs of Mr. Nelson, to his deluded brethren of East Tennessee. Although the scales have fallen from his own eyes at a very late period, we always knew that he would have the honesty and manliness to acknowledge bis error when he should see it. Lincoln's last proclamation has unmasked him to even blinded Union eves, and he now stands forth in all his naked deformity. All true men will extend to Mr. Nelson the right band of fellowship, as he is not the man to acknowledge an error unless* he see 9 it, or to-persist in a thing he knew to be wrong. We hope to hear—and believe he will conceive it to be his duty to do so—that he has gone into Carter and Johnson, and other disaffected counties in Tennessej, where his influence may be felt, and undeceive his misguided fellow-citizens. He can do more in bringing them to light, than any other man in his district or State. ; —» ♦ ♦— : ...

From the Knoxville'Register. ADDRESS OF HON. T. A. R. NEL SON. To the People of East Tennessee. .In all the speeches which I made to you in the spring ?nd summer of 1801, as well as in a printed address to the people of the State. on or about the SOth of May, ISGI. I declared, in substance, that if I had believed it was the object of the North to subjugate the South and to emancipate our slaves, in violation of the Constitution, I would have gone as far as the farthest in advocating resistance to the ut most extent. My attention has just Keen called to a pro clamation issued by the President of the United States on the 22d Sept., ISG2. in which iio declares that "on the first day of January in the year of our L >rd one thousand eight hundred and sixt3'-threo, siH persons held as slaves within any State, or any designated psrt of a State, the people whereof shall then jbe in rebellion against the United States, shall be thenceforward and forever free; and the executive government ...

POETRY. From the Illustrated News. THE STARS AND STRIPES; BY REV. JOHN COLLINS SI'CABE,, D. O. [The origin of the following lines may be traced to the fact, that in 1833 the author, then quite a youth, addressed some stanzas to" the American flag, then the idolized ensign of a free and happy people. They obtained, at the time, some little popularity, more on account of the theme, thaa for any real merit in the production. Some writer for the "Baltimore American" ha's recently revived them, and has taken the trou ble to contrast the present position of the author with bis then entertained sentiments, and pro nounces him "one who is now leagued with those who would like to see the same flag trailing in the dust at the behest of a political usurper."— The aufhor of the present article takes this occa sion to give his reasons for the "change" that has come "o'er the spirit of his dream."] 0 ! there was a time, but Hwas long ngo, In the days of my childhood's years; Ere the North had evo...

pillion ®hpm. & BAIiK Oct. 1-T, 1868^ ThC News. We iave some little news of importance this week, and that little is of a character to make us very anxious for more of the same sort. In the fight at Corinth on the 3d and 4th, we fear that our army was badly worst ed, though not as badly whipped as Yankee accounts indicate. Our forces fought gallant ly, and slew the Fedeials in piles, but they were overpowered by numbers, and forced to retreat. The battle was bloody and obsti nate, and the loss on both sides very heavy. The forces of the enemy were about 50,000, and ours only about 25,000, and the former had the additional advantage of strong forti fications. Altbo' this reverse is to be regret- j ted—deeply regretted on account of the gal lant men who fell—it is no cause of discou ragement. However much we may desire it, we should not expect, in operations so exten- I give, to be always successful. Disasters will occur. The way to.mend them is, to tally in the true spirit, trust...

|V— g —-: —jggj '— : —- ' — General Bragg's Plans. j The Atlanta Confederacy's coi-respondent Writing from Bardstown, Ky., where Bragg's army was on the 27th ult., thus explains his programme: It is no part of General Bragg's present plans to occupy Louisville. He foregoes the empty glory of the conquest to pursue a more comprehensive plan. The march of this army from Chattanooga has been an extraor dinary one. In a little over two weeks Gene ral Brags has transported his great train of ordnance and supplies over two mountains and two rivers, and marched 300 miles. At every move he has deceived, out-goneraled and out-flanked Buel, who is now making, his way to Louisville. On the march he compell ed the surrender of Munfordsville, with 4,500 prisoners and valuable stores of medicines and food. He freed North Alabama, and if General Price has done his duty and executed his part of the programme, the whole of Ten nessee should-now be liberated. The enemy occupies but a small part of Ke...

From the Southern Confederacy, Oct. 5. More Counterfeit Confederate IVotes ! Wholesale and Alarming Counterfeit ing ! We havejust finished examining a package of fifteen hundred dollars—all in hundred dol lars bills—counterfeits of the Confederate Notes—lloyer & Ludwig plates. They are not the same that were put afloat some time ago. These bills had a number of striking points of difference, and were easily detected by the description. The new counterfeit is far more accurate and difficult to detect and is very dangerous. The previous one was a bet ter engraving than the genuine and on better paper, this the same quality of paper, and the engraving appears so exactly like it every way that the difference is only discovered by a careful comparison, and by a person who is used to handling and noticing it. These fifteen bills were sent to Mr. J. T. Porter, a highly respectable commission mer chant in this city, by a house in Mobile, with a package of some four or five thousand dol ...

It is somewhat remarkable, as well as ag gravating, that we cannot get the returns of the election for Judge in this Judicial Dis trict,—not even to know beyond peradventure who is elected.
