A Mammoth Scheme of Operations Confessed. A Yankee Major of seeming respectability, and considerable intelligence, revealed to a Confederate ('aptain a most extended programme which had boon chalked out by Grant, but which, by the vigilance and energy of our officers and men, has been frustrated. This officer (states that Wilson and Kautz were to effect a most thorough destruction of the Southside and Danville Railroads, but were to part company this side of Danville. "\\ ilson was to come down through the rich counties of Charlotte, Lunenburg, Brunswick, Mecklenburg, Greensville and Sussex, stealing all the horses and negroes which could be found in his way, and again enter Grant's lines bv way of Stony Creek; and if this point proved impracticable, to come out where he entered at Reams' Station. Kant/, was to proceed to Danville, from thence to Greensboro, then on to Raleigh, and thence along the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad to Weldou. At the latter place the bridge was to be burne...

In regard to matters of a purely military nature, we never interfere with our opinions or advice, but in civil matters we claim, the right as a citizen to express our opinions, even though they be antagonistic to Governmental policy.

Particulars of the Engagement between the Alabama and the Kear- sage. New York and Baltimore papers of thq 6th contain full particulars of the engagement between the Alabama and Kearsage, the most interesting portions of which are subjoined: The Alabama reached Cherbourg on Saturday, the 11th of June, from Cape Town, with thirty prisoners, the crews of two merchant vessels, which she had captured and destroyed on the passage, and which she landed immediately upon arriving. She entered the harbor for the purpose of making repairs, as she was iu an unseaworthy condition. When it became known that she was going out to light the Kearsage, Mr. Lancaster, an English gentleman, who, with his wife and family, were at Cherbourg on a pleasure trip, steamed out, with ladies and all, to see the engagement. The following is his account, in brief, of what he saw: To the Editor of the London Times: Herewith I send you a copy of my log respecting the engagement between the Confederate steamer Alaba...

Early has returned from Maryland without any serious loss and has accomplished, we suppose, all that was intended. If he had gone much near to Washington, Old Abe would have shook himself out out of his boots, and we see from a a late telegram, that he has not entirely recovered from fright, for, he now calls for five hundred thousand more troops, which wo verily believe he will never get. Who would have thought that at a time when Grant's immense army was besieging our capital, a force could be detached and sent off, sufficient to frighten Baltimore and Washington cities as Richmond has never yet dreamed of being frightened? Retaliation to some extent was practiced, and the charred remains of Gov. Bradfo...

In the Federal Home of -Representatives a committee reported adversly on the memorial of citizens of Illinois, for the cessation of hostilities against the rebels. A BRIGADIER MURDERED. — We find the following paragraph in one of our exchanges without credit: Brig. Gen. Paine had nine bushwhackers shot on the jmblic square in Lynchburg, Lincoln county Tennessee, and seven in Fayetteville. — Among the number was Brig. Gen. Massey, C. S. A., who superintended all the guerilla operations in Middle Tennessee. Gen. Paine told the citizens that if they wanted to fight the government to go and join the rebel army under Joe Johnston. If they stayed in the Federal lines they might think, feel, die secesh, but if they talked or acted treason, he would make them houseless, homeless, and lifeless.

Those who desire to continue their subscription to the Dispatch will please give us notice. AUGUST. The month of August is pregnant with events of momentous consequences to the Confederacy, and to the world. During this month the various military operations now in progress must assume such a phase, as to leave it no longer a matter of doubt what is to be the result of the present campaign, which will also decide whether or not another is to be undertaken, and if so upon what scale it is to be conducted. If Grant remains inactive, around Petersburg and Richmond, and gains no advantage over Lee, his Army must inevitably be so decimated by disease engendered from tho unhealthful miasma arising from the swamps and marshes which surround his present locality, as to render any subsequent attempt upon those ...

Good News from Gen. Early. We give below a special dispatch to the Richmond Whig, dated Harrisonburg, July 28, which gives us a bit of glorious news. Our forces met the enemy near Winchester on Sunday afternoon.— Breckinridge, Gordon's division, chiefly engaged the former and led the skirmish line. The enemy soon broke and fled in all directions. We pursued them to Bunker Hill, twelve miles below Winchester, eapturing fifteen hundred to two thousand prisoners. The enemy burnt their wagons, and threw their guns and knapsacks away. It was a worse stampede rout than the first Manassas. The victory was complete. Prisoners are still coming in. Our loss in killed and wounded not more than fifty'Or sixty—only ten to fifteen killed. The force of the enemy is estimated at sixteen thousand. Valuable Captures. Among the captures in the Trans Mississippi Department from Banks, were 1200 iron axle wagons, and a large quantity of farming implements, which the Yankees had brought with them to reap...

There is certainly nothing in the present situation of military affairs at all calculated to dishearten the most inveterate croaker. Truly may we say "the skies are brightening." Never since the commencement of this cruel and unnatural war have our prospects been so fine. All the signs of the times are encouraging. During the entire progress of the present campaign our arms have not suffered a single reverse of any consequence, while our victories have been many and important. In the Trans-Mississippi Department Banks afrd Steele have been routed, their armies almost annihilated by the Confederates under Kirby Smith and Dick Taylor. This gives us almost the entire control of Western Louisiana and ...

Hooker. It appears that the redoubtable Hooker was relieved from duty with Sherman, and at his own request, he having taken umbrage at the assignment of Maj. Gen. Howard to the Command of the Grand Division of the od Army Coras, made vacant by the death of McPherson. Howard was the junior of Hooker, who took the advancement of the former over him in high dudgeon. Sherman, when a Banker in San Francisco, where Hooker was a loafer thoroughly out at the elbows, had too many opportunities for forming an accurate estimate of "Fighting Joe's" real qualities to trust high responsibilities to him—hence the overslaughing of that worthy embodiment of Yankee Charlatanism. Exchange of Officers at Charles- The Cearleston Murcury of the 4th gives an interesting account of the exchange of fifty Yankee officers who have been confined for some months in that city, for the fifty Confederate officers of nearly similar rank who were placed within the lines of Gen. Foster in front of Charleston. The gen...
