leans Picayune ] X.JX AXMT SBVOKD MAXABA9 STAtrJoP THE j LOUISIANA BIIOASI. August. 30.—Tbe advanced Kspea of tbe army of tbe Potomac are now, Wt he,direction of Wasbingtoe, aa fcr for- Sf fnAlOtt | W||| WoMßniNhb(fOt^ Falls Church. Froftt thence the Capital ksild ; ng and even the people in the streets can be seen distinctly by the aid of a gwd glass. It was from this bill that tlie enemy attempted to drive us a few days ago, when the engagement of which I have already written took place. The loss of the enemy in the affair is not known, but it is L-licved to have been considerable. At all events so hot was their reception that notwithstanding their superior numbers they hastened to make giod their escape within their own lines at Arlington Heights, leaving seven pris oners in our bauds. The infantry engaged in this affair were Longstrcet s brigade, consisting principally of Virginians; the artillery the second company of Major Walton’s i battalion, commanded by Capt Rosser.— The latter had fired but two rounds when the advancing columns broke and fled in the greatest confusion. They were pursued by the Virginians as long an seemed worth the while, when our men returned to the position where they were find attacked. They are now en gaged in foriify ng it with others on the' same line, and presenting the same front i towards \\ akihintoii. These sucei.'.dve | advances have greatly alarmed the enemy ! and they hardly know what to do. This is evident from ihe hesitation and flurry of their uncertain movements. The-mod i ot their movements, indeed, appear to be of the nature of reconnoisanccs to find otjt where we are in greatest force and j what direction we are moat likely to lake i when “the last great day*’ shall come ; \ and that is not tar distant. In the meantime we understand that i the greatest alarm exist* at Washington j at the threatening attitude of Maryland. ! There can be no doubt that the. first gun i fired on the Potomac will be the signal for that downtrodden Slate to rise, ami ■' all ears are open to hear it. It will be j the reckoning day of Black Republican j tyranny, aud the depots at Washington j may well <juake with fear. The move ments when made will not be such an extemporaneous affair as flippant writers say should have been made the dav af ter the battle of Manassas Plain ; but it will be one worthy the resources and ! dignity of tin; great people, we of the ! Confederate States claim to be, auoth< r I victorious step forward into the enemy’s 1 country, if need be, towards conquering that peace which we all desire. The troops composing our advanced, forces belong to the first corps of the! army under command of General Beuti j-egard. It is to this corps that the Louis-1 iana Brigade, under command of Brigs- j dier General Walker, belongs. The \ composition of the brigade I gave in my lust. It will be moved forward at once to the front. The appoinmeut of Gen eral Walker, I understand, has given great satisfaction throughout the brigade, which, being without a regular Briga dier of its own. was necessarily separa- i a rated into its component regiments and i battalions, attached to other brigades | during the engagements of the 18th ' and 21st. General Walker, is. also, delighted; with bis command, as be says he knows they are gallant men, who will go wber- I ever brave men can go. On the Gencr- ! id’s volunteer staff, is Captain Hartstene, . late in command of the Pawnee, one of ihe coolest, ablest and most experienced officers of the old Navy. Ills regular aid ! is Captain "Robert W. Anderson, a grad- I lute of West Point Military Accademy. ! Clptain Hartstene has been at Manassas! much of the time since General Beau re- I gard came here, aud is personally familiar with the country. Under so gallant a leader, and with such counsel, our brave Louisianians need not fear but they will. have an opportunity to add new laurels 1 to those they now wear. The first niovnnent of the brigade will probably be to Germantown, a small vil lage, not far from Fairfax. The water | and forage of the country around is excel lent and the eountry every way healthy. The Ninth have not yet quite ruo through the measles, but otherwise the health of the men is genet ally good. In the Washington Artillery. I believe, there is not a single case of sickness. Among the otorc recent arrivals here sre Wigfall’s Regiment of Tazans and | General Toombs’ Brigade of Georgians. They are among (he handsomest corps in ! the army. Vice President Stephens stilt continues here in attendance upon bis. brother, who b now convalescent: Under the influence of alternate warm < and showery weather, the fruits of the eountry have, the last two weeks, ripen ed very bat. aud (he aimj is now abun dantly supplied with poaches, especially. They are n-t, however, to bt* had here for ' | the asking, in on# orchard, at least, which , l right on tbe line between the two armies, ! and of course a constant scene of con ten |tkm. Scarcely a day panes without a i skirmish of some kind over the peach j orchard, and if nnr enemies fight better! there than they did at Bull’s Run. it is i probably owing to the fact that they have! ! 1 better cause. Our boys, however, say they get the mote peaches any way. We find the following item* in the New Orleans True Delta of the Bth ; A rzw MOSS WANTED. On tbe 2d, President Davi* sent the following reply to a despatch from Gov. Pettue, of Mississippi; | “We shall probably need all the com-j panics you can furnish this fall.” LOUISIANA TROOPS. The Holly Spring (Miss.) Gotten States of the 31st ult., has the following: Since our fete issue upwards of two t thousand soldiers have passed our depot, j 1 bound for Virginia and other points. Must of them were from Louisiana, and like all the troop* sent to the field from i that gallant State, they were noble spcci-1 ' mens of soldiers—true Southern soidiera. ( IN ell and nobly has Louisiana done her part in this war aud *till her brave suns are flocking to the iitandard of their coun try to aid in driving back the Northern foe. She can boast of some of the best I soldiers in tho field, and she has furnished a Bea uregard to lead (hem ou to victory, i Well done, Louisiana. OUR ARMY AT MANA*f AS. i From a letter dated “Camp Pickens, , ; near Manassas. August 21,” and publish-1 ied in the Natchez Courier, we lake the , annexed extract: j It is said that nearly 200.000 Con- j ; federate troops sleep, within twenty j mile* of this location. I believe this' | somewhat of an exaggeration, but our ! name is legion certainly. Rations for j j IBO,OUU men it is said are daily issued; I from thin point. At any rate, we have ! the greatest army ever yet assembled on | the continent, and feeling this, we look • with impatience for onward movements. j Exchange or Prisoxxrs.—The Gov ernment has dune nothing as yet looking j toward a recognition of belligerent rights of the Rebels in the exchange of prison ers with them. Vattel, in bis “Law of Nations” (Rk. 3, chap. 18j says: “A civil war produces in tbe nation two independent parties considering each ' other as enemies and acknowledging no ! common judge; therefore of necessity i these two parties must, at least for a time, be considered as forming two sepa rate bodies, two distinct people—Though one of them may he in the wrong, who shall judge them; who shall prouounce on which aide the right or wrong lies; on earth they have no common superior. Things being thus situated, it is very evident that the common laws of war, • those maxims of humanity, moderation. ' and probity before enumerated, are, in civil wars, to be observed on both sides. | Should one party assume the right to hang { up his prisoners as Rebels, the other will make Reprisals, and the war will become cruel aud horrible. Troops have oft^n ' refusal to serve in a uxir trherein they l were exposed to cruel reprisals. Officers ! who have the highest sense of honor, 1 though ready to shed their blood in the j j field of battle, have uot thought it any part of their duty to run the hazard of au ' ignominious death. Therefore war is to be carried ou between them in the same' manner as between two different nations, aud they are to leave open tbe same means I, for preventing enormous violence and , restot ing peace." I, 1 '■ | From the New York Journal of Commerce. ■ Supporting thn Govxrnmknt.—We' live in curious limes, when common sense i, is of no sort of uae whatever for some pur poses. where it was formetly all that was needed. We hear of some journal* which “support the Administration;” and of olh- i era which do not. When we examine the I former we find what ia called supporting; the Government. It appears to consist) of two pointa. They steadily and furi- j ously attack the Cabinet. declare that the | people have no confidence in one and; another member, and demand that tbe President shall revise hia Council, aud re move tbe Chiefs from the most impor tant departments. This is the first aud main evidence of a hearty support of tbe j Government, and tbe second is like to it. They devote their attention to leading in- j stead of following the Administration; to; informing tbe Administration that tbe peo ple demand this, or the people damand that; and thus embarrassing the judgment ! or hindering the free exercise of Ibat judg- I ment in every man who exereifcea author!- ; tj, from the President down. Woman—she is not made to be the ad miration of everybody, Iml the happiness > * of one. i Th Ritiiid List. —There are fifty. , I two officers in the United States Army .j who can claim to be placed on the retired 1 list, under the recent act of Congress.

Tu* Grave of Senator Douglas.— ; A correspondent of the New York Coni j mcrcial writes from Chicago as follows: i Among the new objects of int< rst shown to the stranger in Chicago is the ' grave of Senator Douglas. On a broad ■ and slightly elevated plain near the bcau l tiful grounds which be consecrated to . the Baptist Society for their colleges, in ' memory of the first Mrs. Douglas, itself, 1 a monument to bis generosity and noble i affection, and to the very spot where he , had anticipated building a mansion to j enjoy a long life, a mound is now raised lover the remains of the great statesman, (Only a few mouths before his death a gentleman in the neighborhood, wishing to negotiate with him for some of his real estate, at that time quite extensive, was told that in that beautiful corner lot ho expected “to build a mansion after his own heart,” where he and bis family might live in comfort and happiness. Near enough to read the inscription on the marble the traveler now passes by, look ing not on the mansion, but on the last resting place of the dead Senator. M. Da Tocqcbvillb on tux Press.— “But in the countries in which the doc trine of the Sovereignty of the people ostensibly prevails, the censorship of the , Press is not only dangerous, but is sb | surd. Where the right of every citiEou I to co-operate in the government of socic | y is acknowledged, every citixcn must j be presumed to possess the power of dis j criminating between the different opin j ions of his coternpuraries, and of appre j 'dating the different facts from which j inferences may be drawn. The sover f' ignty of the people and the liberty of the I press may therefore be looked upon as | correlative institutions; just as the ceus< r hip of the press and universal suffrage are i Iwo things which are irreconcilably op ; posed, and which cannot long be retained I among the institutions of the same people. Not a single individual of the twelve mil * lions who inhabit the territory of the United States has as yet dared to pro pose any restrictions to the liberty of | the press.” Soldiers Running off Slaves. —Two i companies of the Third Regiment of Sic , kies’ Brigade, which have been on sn ex pedition through Anne Arundel county, stopped on their return st Mr. Wasbing ■ ton Bell’s, in Prince George’s county, and I were treated in a most hospitable manner. They repaid bis hi idness by carrying off with them three of his best slaves. Mr. I George W. Duvall, one of the newly ap pointed patrolmen for the county, saw , them and tried to reclaim them, but they escaped from him, and be was laughed at Iby the soldiers. He succeeded, however. ’ in arresting one “contraband” who was following the command and would not tell his master’s name. He was lodged in jail.— Washington Star. —■ ■ S§l-. ■ i Veracity. —The groundwork of all man ly character is veracity. That virtue lies Jat the foundation of everything solid.-- ! How common*il is to hear parents say, *1 have faith in my child so long aaheapeaks 1 *be truth. He may have many faults, but I know be will not deceive me. [ build on that confidence.” They are right. It is a lawful and just ground to build upon. 8o long as truth remains in a child, there I is something to dep< bJ on. -* —| 9 - - i Glass Cut by Lightning. —A thunder storm, which recently broke over Paris, occasioned a curious accident. A large glass bottle, containing cherry brandy, in a bouse iu the Faubourg St. Martin, . was cut by the lightning in a line ms i straight as if it were done by a profes sional hand. The neck of the bottle wee struck off and driven through a window into the ! garden, a distance of more than thirty yards. NO 38 < ■
