Sfanntoa Spectator. I STAIJNJTON, VA. _ I TTOSPAYpiI--lY' 12, 1863. BLOOUY B4T __•_ AND GLORIOUS VICTORY* | The battle between the armies of Gen. ' Lee and Gen. Hooker, which extended ' in space from West of Chancellorsville, ( 12 miles from Fredericksburg, to East of that "old burg," and in time from Friday even in. *, the Ist, to Monday evening, the 4th, was one of the bloodiest* and most kotly contested of the war, and resulted to one ofthe most glorious and decisive v ictories of our gallant army. The enemy had .158,000 men, whilst Gen. 1, :e had, we suppose, less than half tint number. The enemy were cpnfidon!; of victory, and expected to defeat am! eaptnre the army of Gen. Lee. They hare been beaten and driven back across the Rappahannock, and Lincoln has called tor 500,000 more men. This .'.t'-t will stand as a refutation of the str. ingest lying they can possibly perpotra'e in reference to this battle.

In the '-Staunton Vindicator" of May 8,1863, appeared an editorial notice ot the recent expedition to North West Virginia. The tone of the article was friendly and complimentary to Colonel Asher W. Harman, of the 12th Virginia Cavalry, as was very natural and proper coming from a relative and friend. In the Staunton Spectator- of May 12,1 pub lished an extract from this article with a brief editorial comment a3 follows: "Beautiful Silver Set'" — We saw a beautiful t<H/ver set, which was captured and sent ai apresent to Mrs. Col.

&tat«to» Stytttator. TTOSDA-T, rar_ra tt, 1563. ANOTHER »' YOUTHFUL INDISCRETION. » In our "Card," in the last Spectator, we quoted and copied all that had been said in either the Vindicator or the Spectator in relation to tlie " beautiful silver set which was captured aud sent as a present to Mrs. Col. A. W. Harman," and we also stated distinctly that "no further notice had been taken of the subject in either the Vindicator or the Spectator" It would seem to be impossible, then, that we could have done any injustice to the Editor of the Vindicator. lle complains, however, of the following passage in our card: "3. It remains to be seen whether Colonel Harman will succeed by the strong hand in preventing all inquiry into a transaction which, as stated by his own friend and relative, places him in an attitude of having first violated all the usages of civilized warfare by the plunder of private property, and then having, in violation of his duty to his own Government, appr...

Star-tttott %Ktetor. STAUN;rON,VA. TUESDAY, JUSTE 9, 1863. THE EDITOR'S CONDITION. Though the editor is still confined to his room, yet he thinks it will not be a great while before "Richard will be himself again." Though it will be some time before he will be able to have the use of his left arm aud shoulder, yet, as the right arm is urrnj ured, he hopes, within the space ot another week, to be able to resume the labors of his office. His personal pulchritude is not damaged, as his most prominent feature, which was disproportionately magnified, has resumed its original size, (which, however, was never very diminutive,) and the colors which were added to his face in a n. inner more striking than tasteful, ami with vigorous strokes rather than artistic :ienciling,have disappeared. One nostril r'eems to be very slow in its recovery, as it is still in a breathless condition, and. :is a consequence, it gives a nasal twan- to his voice which is too Yankee-like to be very agreeable to his...

As usual, in the absence of official information, there has been such a contrariety of reports that it has been impossible to learn satisfactorily what was the disposition of our forces, the character of the conflict, and tlie exact results accomplished. It seems, however, that on Friday morning, Gen. Ewell, much to the surprise of the enemy, reached Front Royai, Warren county, eighteen miles from Winchester, and at once pu...

The Yankees who landed from their gunboats and transports at the White House have already done some mischief. On Thui-sday evening a portion of tlie Federal troops—about 1,200— left the White House on the road t. Hanover Court House, and upon arriving camped for the night on Col. Wickham's farm, where they captured Gen. W. H. F. Lee, who has been there since he was wounded in the battle of Brandy Station, on the 9th. They conveyed him away in the carriage of Col. W., which they stole. They also burned the fn'e barn of Col. Wickham, and one or two other out-buil-Uugs. The next morning they started upon an expedition to destroy the South Anna Bridge on the Central K. _-~ three miles and a half from Hanover Junction, which they succeeded in doing by over coming the guard of only 80 men, who offered a stout resistance, but were overpowered before reinforcements could | reach the...

Every one is asking the question, "Where is Gen. Lee's army?" and "Echo answers, where?" The only news we now get from that army is through the Northern papers. By an examination of the map ofthe Keystone State in conjunction with the telegrams in the Northern papers, it would seem that our forces are no where particularly, but everywhere generally—they seem to be spread about loos, over a lar_;e part of that wealthy State. The Yankees have been concentrating their forces at Harri-burg, the Capital of Pennsylvania, and have boast* d that they are able to defend that city successfully.— If they look North, the much dreaded "ragged rebels" are there ; if they look South, Jiliey are there, and if they look West, they are there.

E Staunton Spectator. STAUNTON,VA. TUESDAY, JULY 14, 1863. FROM GEN. LEE'S ARMY, The despatches which have been sent from Martinsburg in reference to military operations in IPennsylvania have been so very contradictory and unreliable that it has been impossible to form any satisfactory idea of what has really been done. We had intended to publish them, but found them so unreliable, and some of them so palpably false—reporting battles when none were fought—that we determined not to occupy space with them. The Richmond Dispatch learns from an officer of Wright's brigade, who left Gettysburg on Saturday,the 4th, that in the light ot Wednesday and Thursday we whipped the enemy badly. On Friday the fight again commenced, being chiefly done by our cenlre, which -was composed oi Longstreet's corps and two divisions of A. P. Hill's corps. Neither the right nor left wing was seriously engaged. We drove the enemy back five miles to the heights, which he had fortified. In driving them this fiv...
