[From the London Times, of June 12.] It is plain that the time is approaching when Europe will have to think seriously of its relations to the two belligerents in the American war. A contest is raging of which we predict nothing but that every week will add to the hatreds of the two communities, and will spread ruin wider and wider. The state of affairs disclosed to us by the last advices deserves anxious consideration. It cannot be doubted that we are approaching a time when a more important question than that of an offer of mediation may have to be con...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, WEDNESDAY,::::::::: JULY 16, 1862. We present to-day the first issue of the "Dispatch" and in accordance with the universal custom proceed to lay down our platform and state the general principles which will govern us in the conduct of the paper. We have always belonged to the States Rights school of politics, very straight-laced at that, and naturally in the beginning of our troubles which resulted in war took our stand with the Southern Rights party. When we reflect on our once beautiful system, as it came from the hands of its framers—with all its various and independent parts, blended into one ,'harmonious whole,'' we must be struck with the mighty change—all its beauties have disappeared all the powers ol the States absorbed in an absolute, consolidated Government, with no restrictions to the will of a selfish and despotic majority. For years the North had been infringing on the rights of the South; it was only by their broad and latitudinous construction o...

accomplishment, was placed upon this very conjunction with a large naval force. Before unquestioned blame is attached, anywhere, let us be quite sure that we know all the facts. Reinforcement was to be made at a given time on both sides; if the enemy, in their desperation, were speedier in their action—the speedier, because their facilities in a given case were the greater—let us remember that the greater haste is not always the greater speed— It is their turn to-day, it may be ours to-morrow. War never brings unvarying success to one side only, else there would be no war. We do not mean, of course, to wink out of sight the serious character of recent events on the Peninsula, or to blind ourselves and our readers to the check our arms have received there. But these ought not to discourage or overwhelm us. On the contrary, they should nerve us to new determination and new effort. LOCAL ITEMS. Wounded Soldiers. For the last six or eight days, the cars have reached our Depot well freig...

We publish the following able editorial from the Richmond Examiner, to shew the feeling of the North in regard to the war, and its pvobable consequences. The accounts which we have of public sentiment and action in the North, with reference to the prosecution of the war, are, some of them, amusing, some grave and some in fact, truly alarming. The mass meetings in New York, Boston, Springfield, Portland and other places, are so much sound and fury ; they signify nothing. The Yankee country is the land of cheap pageants.

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, FRIDAY,::::::::::: AUGUST 15, 1802 Another Victory. Gen. Jackson's modest and un- j pretending dispatch announcing his late important victory at Cedar Creek, will be found in another column. "God has blessed our arms with another victory" The grave and reverential terms employed by this great and good man and able commander, in announcing an event of such startling magnitude, contrast" strangely with the bragadocio style adopted by the Yankee Generals in making known even the most unimportant and trifling skirmishes. But the victory was complete, And must lead to important results in the valley. How much we have gained and how important the results to follow we fear to express an opinion. If coming events cast their shadows before and rumor is the shadow, then most important results will be realized and a few days will develop them. We prefer the suspense a few days, to the expression of a hope that may be followed by that sad and melancholy disappointment which...

LOOJLIj ITEMS. MILITIA. — Col. Thomas Sanders Presiding Justice of the County Court, has appointed Monday the 18tli day of the present month to enroll the Militia men of this County. Punctual attendance at the Court-house is requested, as there is not a day to be lost. COUNTY COURT. — This Court adjourned on Wednesday last. Very little business of importance was transacted; most of the suitors and witnesses being in the army. The Grand Jury returned seventeen bills of indictment, among the number, ten for selling liquors without license. CASUALITIES IN THE WYTHE GRAYS In the recent battle at Cedar Creek, Edward Crockett and Stephen Rider, members of this Company were killed. Thus have two more brave spirits been added to the long list of martyrs to the cause of Liberty. ACCIDENT. —We are sorry to learn that a youth, son of Mr. Guy F- S. Trigg of this County had a finger shot off and hand mutilated by the accidental discharge of his gun, whilst hunting. Another caution against the ca...

ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, \ August 4th. 1862. j THE force which has been placed in the field having proved inadequate to the defence of the State, many portions of which are invaded by marauding bands of the enemy, who insult, oppress and rob our people; and the Northern government smarting under their recent defeats around Richmond and elsewhere, having called for an additional force of 300,000 men with the purpose of continuing their aggressions upon Virginia and the other States of the Confederacy—the Governor feels it to be his solemn duty to call upon the Militia not now in service, to unite with him in a prompt and vigorous effort to repel the enemy, to rescue the soli of the State and our people from the pollution and tyranny of a detestable foe, now api>eals to the men of the following named counties, from 35 to 45 years of age, to wit: The county of Washington.

If any power exist to relieve tlie misery of Lancashire, and avert the intenser misery which impends over it, it is lodged in the hands of her Majesty's government. There is no hope but in enormous and immediate increase in the supply of cotton ; such an increase as can only be derived from the re-opening of our trade with the Confederate States. That trade will not be re-opened with the permission of the Federalists. They have seized ports, and pretended to admit trade to those ports, hoping, perhaps, by this s...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, TUESDAY,:::::::::: AUGUST 19, 1862 "We continue to publish news from Europe to show the sentiment of the Press on the subjects of mediation and recognition, now assuming so much importance. The feeling of the press and people of England have always been in favor of the South. They have looked on with admiration at the struggle of a brave people contending for their rights against such large odds and under so many disadvantages. A generous people would not fail to take deep interest in the progress of the eventful war, and have always rejoiced at the success of the South. The Government of England is purely selfish, and will only act when interest prompts it. It is governed altogether by the cold calculations of prudence. The people in the manufacturing districts are becoming excited and alarmed on the subject of the Cotton trade. It would suit the selfish policy of England to foster the cotton trade of India, and by high prices, to stimulate the growth, and thus...

LOCAL ITEMS. CHARLIE COALE. —The Editor of the "Abingdon Virginian" paid a short visit to our sanctum on Friday last. He is looking remarkably well, indeed handsome. We were sorry that his stay was so short, as we would have been glad to have had more chat with him. We hope the next time he visits the Metropolis of the South-west, he will at least stay long enough to break bread with us. We know of no paper more deserving of patronage than the "Virginian." It is always calm, dignified and reliable. GEN. BUCKNER. —This distinguished patriot passed the Wytheville Depot on Sunday last, having been exchanged under the recent cartel. He appears to be about 40 years of age, is about six feet two inches high and looks every inch a soldier He has been closely confined at Fort Warren since the battle of Fort Donelson, in a felon's cell and rereceived a felon's fare. He was allowed only one hour in the twenty four, for exercise. He looks pallid and care-worn, but his fiery eye spoke vengeance...

All can patronise this Institution with not the fear of having their daughter's religious sentiments interfered with; nothing will ever he introduced that will have a tendency to operate on the religions impressions of our pupils. We endeavor to throw around our students only such restraints as are necessary to secure their rapid progress in learning, and their well-being in other respects, while under our instruction and protection. We aim to render all happy, by surrounding them with the comforts of home, ministering to their wants, and sympathizing with them in their joys and sorrows.

Napoleon selected his Marshals and Generals from the ranks; choosing not "men of influence," their sons, relatives or friends, but those in whom his penetrating eye had discerned the inborn faculty of leadership, the power of planning and executing great and successful military movements. Cromwell was the son of a brewer, and but for the exigencies of the period in which he lived, would have remained an obscure and quiet citizen of Huntingdon. And the "foremost man of all the world," our own Washington, had, ...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, FRIDAY,::::::::::: AUGUST 22, 1862 j Female Education. We have intended for several weeks, to advert to the serious importance of female education. Now that we have shaken off the incubus of the Yankee Government, with all its mock parade and hollow vanities, we would be glad to see our infant Republic erected on a sure and lasting foundation. Nothing marks so definitely the degree of civilization of a countr}' as the manners, customs and employment of its females. The time is past when woman is to be regarded as inferior to man. Formerly she was regarded as a mere drudge, with no object in life but to obey the mandates of her Lord and master, man. As civilization spread, this idea of inferiority was abandoned and new fields were opened for the useful employment of her faculties. In no country does there exist a greater variety of employment for the female than our own beloved South. She is not confined to needle work and the loom, or to shops of fancy goods and...

Most of the cases have been those of children, and in almost every instance, has proved fatal. OUR STREETS. —We said a lew words in our last issue in regard to the unhealthy condition of our streets. We notice that Capt. Robert Gibboney has had "Gibboney's alley" cleaned and regenerated to the neatness of a new pin. We hope others will follow his example and go and do likewise. THE WEATHER. —As "local items" are exceedingly scarce, we refer to this new subject again. Dry, dusty and hot is the disagreeable ticket. We hope soon to have a change for the better, both in "locals" and the weather. ACCIDENT. —John A. Sanders, jr., bad his right arm badly cut and mutilated by a mowing machine, last week.

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, TUESDAY,:::::::::: AUGUST 26, 1862 We think now, as we have j all along thought, that from the treatment extended us by the Northern Government, Southern forbearance should cease longer to be a virtue. We have borne and forborne until our patience and feelings of mercy should be exhausted. "That mercy Ito others show, that mercy show to me," should now be, that mercy to us extended by others, that mercy extend to them. Now, more frequently than in the past, are we greeted with the recital of facts that make one's blood boil to reflect upon. Not a day is permitted to pass that some official of the United States Government is not guilty of the murder of our soldiers as well as private citizens. If a prominent officer is killed by our partizans, from one to twenty of our men are hung or shot without the form of trial. Our men when taken prisoners, are frequently shot "in retaliation," and yet we sit quietly and submit to it as though the lives of our men were as wo...

Such conduct is mean, contemptible, unholy, unwise, indecent and ungentlemanly ; and we trust that if it is persisted in, the names of such person or persons will be read out and exposed from the pulpit, and a public reprimand given by the minister.
