that the men seemed completely dispirited and disheartened, and many expressions of murmuring were heard. They express the opinion that Pope's ''change of base" was forced upon him by the discontented condition of his men.— Lynchburg Bepublican, 23d inst. LOCAL ITEMS. BAD CONDUCT. —Some of the young bo} r s, and also some of the old boys, of our town, are in the habit of remaining in the vestibule of some of our churches, during divine service, and by their heavy walk and boisterous talking and laughing greatly disturb the worshippers within. 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. "If neither good words nor gentle means will not reclaim the wicked, they must be dealt with in a more severe manner." MR. EDITOR.—I am requested by the Sisters of Mercy to acknowledge through your ...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, FRIDAY, :": si: : : SEPTEMBER 20, 18C.2 Summary of News. The news of the week is interesting. Every day adds a chapter to the most important history of ancient or modern times. We hear of our army crossing into Maryland for the purpose, as we suppose, of liberating her people. We then hear of a recrossing of the Potomac, which would indicate an abandonment of the enterprise. The last news however would shew that only one division of our army recrossed the Potomac, this was for a special purpose, whilst General Lee with the main bod}' pressed on and engaged the army under McClellan on Friday and achieved a complete triumph, compelling him to make another "masterly retreat." The capture of Harper's Ferry with 11,000 men, and all its stores will well repay for the expense of the expedition. On Saturday at Shepherdstown, another engagement took place between the forces of Gen Jackson and a column of the enemy 10,000 strong—this resulted as usual where Stonewall is e...

The Truth of History* We stated the other day that the European public would not believe McClellan's telegrams touching the paper victory at Sharpsburg, and that the London Times would sift his statements to the bottom as soon as they came to hand. That we were not for wrong, the facility with which it extracted the truth from his lying bulletins, dated from Berkeley, sufficiently proves. It says: "A series of six days of battle and six days of defeat is now described in the letters received from New York.

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, FRIDAY,:::::::::: OCTOBER 10, 1862 Lincoln. The name of this man will go i down as the most infamous that ever disgraced our nature. Whoever has read his last proclamation must feel the blush of shame that such a monster belongs to the same race. To sit down quietly and pen such a paper must require a fiendish spirit, a hellish purpose altogether unheard of in the annals of history. Our President ought to offer a reward for his head—such a monster ought not to be permitted to live longer. It would be a good idea, too, for our Congress to enact a law that the devils who come to assist in carrying out this infamous proclamation, should be treated as land-pirates and murderers. No favor should be shown them. The idea of treating such creatures as prisoners of war, as recognized by civilized nations, seems to be absurd. They are devils incarnate and should be destroyed like rattlesnakes. Let us raise the black flag and, our word for it, these demons in human shape w...

In the remarkable and interesting speech recently delivered by Mr. Van Buren in New York city, a report of which we transferred to our columns a few days ago, a very extraordinary letter was quoted, which purported to have been written by General Scott on the eve of Mr. Lincoln's inauguratoin, warning him of the tremendous difficulties of any plan to restore the Union by force, and suggesting other plans for a pacific solution of the question of secession. The letter was so extraordinary ; it manifested such prescience; it was so opposed to the common and settled reputation of ...

unjust in bis judgments, and he per- j mitted nothing to stand between him and the execution of his passions. This youug man, if he had always directed his energies judiciously, could have made himself a distinguished ornament in any position of life. He might have been an able and honored statesman in the service of the Republic. But an intense Southern sympathy, in spite of the arguments, the remonstrances, and the entreaties of those who dearly loved him, made an active rebel against his country ; and, after a brief five weeks' service in the rebel ranks, he fell, soon to breath out his fier}' life, receiving, meanwhile, far away from his family, the kindly administrations of those against whose cause his strong right arm had been raised. Oh, if he had fallon in his country's service,fallen with his burning eyes fixed in love and devotion upon the flag that for more than three-fourths of a centurj r has been a star of worship to hisancestors, his early death,though still terrible...

CANDLES We saw to-day a very superior article of tallow candles made by Mrs. Fleming K. Rich of our village. They were so beautiful we were induced to enquire the process of manufacture. It so simple that we give the recipe: After the melting of the tallow, add say one pound of quicklime to every twenty of tallow, strain the tallow and mould the candles. If this recipe is followed you will have a candle equal to the adamantine of the North, free from all impurities and giving a brilliant light.

For some weeks I bad been sojourning at a pleasant little village on tbe romantic banks of tbe Tombigbee river. It liad not been my intention to spend more than a day or two. but the good shooting and fishing, beautiful scenery, and the agreeable society of the fair daughters of my host, (a jovial old Southern planter, whose manly breast, capacious as it was,was hardly large enough to contain his great, generous heart,) taken in connexion with his fine table and choice old Peach and Madeira, were attractions too powerful to be easily resisted, and day after day glided by ...

other shore, and, besides, being chilled by ray immersion, I was no little enfeebled by my physical and mental struggles. There was no resource however. I must recross the stream and endeavor to bring over the rest of my baggage. So, proceeding a quarter of a mile above the ferry, I plunged in and swam across. A good pull at the brandy flask in my carpet bag reinvigorated me wonderfully, and carrying my luggage up to a point opposite to that at which I had last crossed, I was on the point of "taking water" for the third time, when a couple of negroes made their appearance on the bank I had just left. I offered them a liberal compensation if they would construct a raft on which I could float my property across, and with a little hatchet they went to work and speedily chopping a log of abouteight inches in diameter into six feet each, they bound the p eces together with a grape vine, and announced that the raft was completed. In vain I endeavored to induce one of them to bring it over...

In a speech lately made in New York, John Van Buren read a letter from General Scott to Secretary Seward, written immediately after Lincoln's inauguration, which will have the effect of somewhat modifying the fierce hatred felt by almost the entire Southern community towards the latter. He therein advised the Secretary by no means to make war on the Confederate States, but to let the number then out depart in peace. He was confident, he says, that if this policy were pursued, no more States would secede, and that those already out would soon come back. The attempt to conquer the seced...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, FRIDAY, :::::::: : NOVEMBER 7, 1862 Summary of News. "We gather the following news from our exchanges: There is nothing in the latest advices from our army on the Potomac to indicate that a battle will be fought shortly. It is more than probable that the enemy has not crossed the river in large force. A skirmish is reported as having taken place on Sunday, between a small body of our troops and a party of Yankees, which resulted in a total rout of the enemy, and a capture of eighty prisoners. The army of Gen. Echols is at Montgoinerys ferry, near the falls of the Kanawha, the enemy is not in pursuit. Our army occupies a safe and good position. The most gratifying news we have is that Major Gen. Breckenridge has demanded the surrender of Nashville ; two days are given for the removal of women and children. The possession of Nashville would enable us to 4< blookade" the Cumberland and Tennessee so as to render it almost impossible for gunboats to ascend...
