Otherwise, our every battle in this quarter may reasonably be expected to be a Bull-run affair over again. CKNKEAL LYOM. The Government here have received no lntelllence whatever concerning the state of things around Springfield, Mo., since the day before yesterday. Their impression is. however, that Gen. I-von is so posted near that town as that he may defy any attack that the combined disunion forces under Ben MrCullogh and Claib Jackson may essay. Gen Pope is in Northern Missouri, 110 miles distant from Sprlngfield.with a much larger force than be absolutely needs there just now, and may easily throw l.tioo of It there In time to aid (if>n Lrnn If Ho J , ..

From th? be# Information within my reach, I believe that the neavy army suddenly massed at Manassas Junction to oppose our friends'advance ha* been greatly lessened by the return of most of those drawn from positions of defense elsewhere. 1 am happy to have It in my power to nay, that the discipline of the Union army on this side of the Potomac lsgreatly improved,and its Improve* ment, which is well known, doubtless, to the en'my hereabout, has caused the latter to be far more guarded in their movements than before. The better discipline of our army has thus put a stop to the loss of out men by capture while " fooling" outside of our lines; all the capture' now being made coming from the other side Thus, a party of our scouts a few days since caught four at or near Daniel Minor's farm, missing Ab Minor (whom they were after especially) by hot about teu minute*.

Five Hundred Homes Laid In Aihm by a Force I nder the C?inraaiid of Gen Itlagrader. Fo?trr*? Monroe, Aug. 8?The town of Hampton has been destroyed by the Confederates Scouts and fugitives brought word yesterday morning of the approach of a large Confederate force from Yorktown. The rumors were confirmed at 5 p.m. by the arrival of an Intelligent deserter from the Seces-1 sionists named E A. Mahew, a native of Maine, but a re?:dent of Georgia until impressed Into tbfe service, who furnished your correspondent an account of the expedition. Mr. Mahew has be*n | stationed at Yorktown since the 1st of June. On Friday last General Magruderleft Yorktown with a force of s< yen thousand men, including two hundred cavalrv and eltrht ? ' . ?- V* UI lillCI three Parrott guns, four howitzers and one rilled cannon Part of these troops were from Williamsburg. On MvuUay nigni me foux eucauijieU at Great Bethel, which had been completely deserted On Tuesday night they advancea towards Hampton, and at noon vhterdw^ook up a position on Bark river, some three nmes from the town, where Mataew managed to escape through a corntleld, swimming a couple of stream!" and Anally reached the Fortress He says the object of the expedition was to draw out our forces, attack Camp Hamilton or Newport News, If practicable, and at least to destroy Hampton, so as to prevent the Federal troops using it for winter quarters Gen Butler repaired at once to this end of Hampton bridge, where he remained until 11 o'clock. Col. Weber erected a barricade near the Hampton end of the bridge, and placed a strong guard at various points this side or the creek A few minutes past midnight Uen Magruder. with about live hundred Confederates, some of then) belonging In Hampton, entered the town a<td Immediately fired the building* with torches The greater part of the fine iiundrrd holstes, being built of wood and very dry, there having been no rain lately, were soon in flames and the strong south wind quickly fanned them to a terrible conflagration. There were perhaps twenty white people and double that number of negroes remaining In the town from inability to move away. Some of the houses of these poor creatures were fired without wnklnir tlium The incendiary soldiers gave Carey Jones and bit wife, both of them aged and infirm, but fifteen minutes to remove a few articles of their furnltute to their garden. Several of the whites and al?o of the negroes were hurried away to be pressed Into the Confederate service. \Vm. Scofield, a merchant, took refuge In the swamp above the town, and thus escaped. Four negroes were dflowned while attempting to cross the creek. A companv of Rebels attempted to force the passage of the bridge, but were repulMd with a Ion of three killed and six wounded. The tire raged all night with terrific aspect. The greater part of the Confederates withdrew towards morning, and at noon to-day, when 1 visted the place, but seven or eight buildings wtre left standing. The destruction of the town was a wanton act of cruelty to the resident Unionists, and moreover entirely useless, as lien. Butler intends to winter army ma*$r mile* beyond Hampton. An attempt will be made to fasteh this act of vandalism upon the General, but after ten o'clock on Wednacilatr ?!? *?* ??? * ~ imiui mere mi not a Kedenl soldier In Hampton.

At the commencement of that time several of the wealthiest I'nloo men of the place, anticipating tbe destruction of the town, wisely determined to leave, and after gathering np their portable goods, consisting in part of merchandise and household furniture, removed to this city, where nearly all of tbem have relatives or friends. There yet remained, however, at least sixty persons,.two-thirds of whom were negroes, aud the remainder men of business, who have been residing at the place for tbe last ten yesrs or more The first positive Information which the whites had of toe destruction of tbe place was bv an advance guard of tbe Confederate troops. who sfter letting a? - , , ? m ? *? *v a number of bouses, proceeded to the occupied residence* and told the families that they bad liberty to leave the place, providing they would do ao in a quarter of an boor Unprotected by the military, and acarcely knowing what might be tbe conaequencea If they remained beyond the prescribed time, a general stampede took place, and but f?w minutes elapsed before tbe entire place waa in flames, and out ef at least 465, not more than ten have escaped at least partial destruction. Among these are about fifteen public buildings, Including three hotels, ttve churches, a lecture ball. Ac. Of the churches, three were of the Methodist denomination, one being rebuilt one Baptist, and tbe other Protectant Episcopal, which had stood for more than one hundred years.

Ai the stranger came down, the St I,awrence hoisted all sail and affected to be anxious to get out to tea. In reality, however, (he waa edging cloeer in to ?fcore and making arrangement* below to recelvc the reckless visitor* with appropriate largeness Directly a shot came skipping over the water, falling into the sea a f?vr rods ah*ad of the frigate, and a number followed It in quick aucc-aaion, but nearly all either striking beyewd or pnsaing over. The final discharge conflated of grape ana c in later, which made some little dalliance with the frigate's rigging, and admonished the commander tuat the play was growing serious. At this time the vessels ware within speaking distance, and a man In uniform was seen mounted npon the pirate's deck, whe shouted to the 3t. Lawrence to lay to and send over a boat. The crew were distinctly ?een flourish ng their cutlassts and the gunners ramming and pointing their guns.. She carried three guns, supposed to I be rifled cannon Then the J*t. Lawrence threw up her port* and disclosed a whole broadside of cannon, with the gunoers at the breech of the i guns, holding lighted fuses. and directly the | broad deck* were filled with wimen in blue jackets, armed with muskets. who sprang into the shrouds and ran out the yardf, laying prone in the maintop, on the breveprit, in the forcastle, and at every point where aim could betaken with advantage. In a word, the ugly merchantman waa metamorphosed into a bristling war chip with a man at every point, and a broadside looking into the eyes of the pirates The latter, taken aback, recoiled a moment; but before they had time for action, even for thought, the guns belcbed forth iron and fire, splintering the masta. cutting the rigging and sails as with knives, breaking the spars and the booms, and literally carving the schooner into pieces, and opening gulfs into which tne waters rushed, as through sluices, filling the hold, and admrnisblng the rebels that their sole hopes of life lay in the ships boat or ia wrestling with the sea The tire still continued, and the water was fall of driftw ood Many of the men jumped overboard.and the rest, launching the lifeboat, jumped in and held up a white handkerchief as a sign of surrender lint one man had an opportunity to go dowa into the cabin for his property, and he was the lieutenant, a fellow named Harvey, formerly a midshipman In tbe i n!!td BMB rrrlce, under command of Captain Sartor!.
