The following is an extract taken from a long letter published in the Charlottesville Chronicle, and written by a son of Dr. J. R. Woods of Albemarle, to his father, giving an account of the fight at New Market. It will be seen that he complements the Cadets very highly. He says: Our battery was engaged on fivo different sites, each time charging as fast as the horses oould carry the pieces, taking position and tiring vigorously. The whole action was probably one of the most exciting of the war. The constant charges, the rushing of the; batteries f...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : : JUNE 3, 1804 It may not lie unprofitable for the people of the South to look back occasionally and see what they have accomplished in the great struggle for Independence. We are too apt to be cast down and to become disheartened because that the war, which was expected to be short, appears to us only to have taken a fresh start after having progressed for three long weary years. Instead of grumbling and wearing long faces we ought to be thankful that the Almighty has so blessed us, as to cause a handful to successfully compete with the mighty hosts of the invader. We were weak in the commencement of the struggle and had nothing with which to go to housekeeping, save a littie secondhand furniture which had been badly kept, but now, if we have not a .surplus, we are at least very respectably furnished. Three years of war and of blockade have deprived us of many luxuries. and we sometimes sigh when we remember the almost forgotten days of pure cof...

Gen. Longstreet's Wound. General Longstreet has authorized a contradiction of the statement that the wound under which he is suffering, was inflicted by Mahonc's Brigade. It is a great relief to the brigade and its friends, that it is thus exonerated, of what, though at most an innocent accident, was, nevertheless, matter of distress and mortification. A DEVOUT REGIMENT. —The following is an extract from a letter of an officer of the 18th Va. Cavalry, Imboden's Brigade. It refers to the fight of Gen. Imboden before the main battle near New Market: "Before "the charge, and while we were in line, the command to dismount was given, when our noble old Chaplain sang a hymn and then prayed —the whole regiment kneeling. It was a solemn and impressive sight just on the eve of battle. And God blessed our arms with victory. The chaplain prayed that if it should please God we might scatter our enemies, but, Oh! preserve the lives of these dear ones, and prolong them for Thy glory." Truly did G...

The latter sentence of the above caption we find in the New York Daily news, of the 13th, over an editorial of melancholy, but thrilling interest. It speaks in trumpet tones of the deep feeling which pervades that great community. It now only slumbers, but at an early day it must burst forth, like the fires of the volcano, utterly consuming the vile abolitionists —the vilianous authors of this cruel war.

WTTHETILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : JUNE 10, 18G4 ABRAHAM LINCOLN. In coming time the historian will lie puzzled to know by what moans the present chief of Yankeedom arrived at the position which he at present occupies, The time was when it was thought to be a place of honor. to be filled only by men distinguished for those qualities which belong to greatness, and in the purer days of the Republic, intelligence and honesty were the only passports, (t is a question not very difficult of solution, when we remember that the people comprising the Northern portion of the once United States, have gradually loosened the ties which bound them to honor and honesty, and by degrees became fit subjects to be ruled by a fanatical tyrant. If he were posessed of more intelligence and less trickery he would be deemed an improper representative, and his constituents would be clamorous to rid themselves of him. But ho is "one of them" in every sense of the expression and they are perfectly satisfied...

Grant's Losses. The news from the enomy's lines is of the most encouraging character. The Petersburg "Express" states that, outside of Grant's official circle,,and safely removed from the tyranny of Lincoln and Seward, the Not hern people do not hesitate to admit terrible losses in Grant's army. None estimate it at less than 75,000, while many say that it will reach DO,OOO. This is from all causes—killed, wounded, prisoners, deserters, and stragglers. The deserII• . 1 tion and straggling is represented to be without preoedent. A member of Mosby's command, writing to his relatives in Petersburg, says that 31 OK by has been in the rear of Grant since he moved from Culpeper Court House, and that from the Rapidan and the Rappahannock to the Potomac, the country literally swarms with stragglers. These men do not hesitate to say that they are from the army of the Potomac, and under no circumstances will they be carried back alive. Each man is armed, and says he will sell his life as dearl...

News From the North. PETERSBURG, June 11. The New York Herald, of the 9th has boen received. Lincoln and Andy Jehnson have been nominated by the Baltimore Convention on the Bth inst. The Herald thinks the ticket will have a hard road to travel. The eleventh resolution declares for the maintainance of the Monroe doctrine. A victory is claimed for Hunter in the Yalley, but from information gathered exclusively from Southern sources. Morgan captured Mount Sterling Kentucky, on the Bth ; destroyed the bridges tore up the track of the Kentucky Central Railroad between Cynthiana and Paris, captured a passenger train, occupied Paris and destroyed important trestle work at that point.

"Gen. John Pope had signalized himself, and illustrated the Northern genius for smartness by a feat ■it once simple and grand.

For the Dispatch. The Stonewall Brigade. Many slanders derogatory to the Stonewall Brigade have been circulated among the soldiers of this Army and some have even been sent to the public prints, to the effect that the Brigade 'acted ingloriously' 'fled'etc, in the different battles which have taken place since the sth inst. One report has gained considerable credit which has not the slightest foundation, viz; that tht Stonewall Brigade ran at the battle of the Wilderness. It is well known to all that the Brigade held the whole of Ilancock's corps in check saved our line from disaster, although we were flanked on each wing and attacked with desperation in the front. Agaiu, a writer in one of the Richmond Pa- pers says Johnson's Division "acted ingloriously" on the 12, instant. He ■ seems to wish to make capital for Gordon's and Pegram's Brigades from the misfortunes of those which composed Johnson's Division, and particularly does he mention the Stonewall Brigade, as having done badl...

Those who desire to continue their subscription to the Dispatch will please give us notice. Strange as it may appear the people of the Confederate States seem to look with distrust upon the measures of the Government, and are ready to complain of injustice, let it present itself in no matter how questionable a shape. Struggling for liberty and determined to be free from Yankee rule, they are none the less anxious that the Government which has been inaugurated in opposition to tyranny should be so administered as to afford protection to the citizen. To a certain extent this feeling is eminetly right and proper, and without it the governed would in time become the victim of the most cruel oppression. But to everything there is a limit and the danger with'us is not that tin- people will bo oppressed bu...
