If they had not been called out, the probability is that the yankees would have seen that the way was o]>en for tliaf march into the inte rior of the State to which they considered themselves invited last Fall by the Standard.

Jlveuts that soc'in to us to Oi> grievous calamities, are often blessings iu disguise; itutl it may be that this is oue of them. Tuk Hospitai. IX THIS Town.—W'e would remind our readers in town aud country, that there are about a hundred sick and wounded soldiers in the Ho.'^pi- tal in this town, aud that any delicacit's that can be spared, of vegetables, fowl?, fresh meats, eggs, but ter. in short anything that would be acceptable to an invalid, would be most worthily be5*towed npon these brave and sufi'ering defenders of their country. To those who canuot afford to give, we are retjuest- ed by Mr. Palmer, (an inmate of the Hospital, who has been detailed to make purchases while he is con valescing.) to say that he will be glad to purchase on as favorable terms as possible. He travels for this purpose up the railroad every week or two. A OooD CuA.vrn.—\V> saw on Monday in the re cently established K.^tpress Office in this town, a barrel of tiour, wtiich a soldier's wife was sending to her*husband in Virginia. The freight was no doubt a considenible item, but including that the flour will be laid down in Richmond at about two-thirds of what it would cost there. But what most struck us was the facility afforded by this Kxpress line to send Hospital stores for the sick, as well as tood and clothing for relatives and friends. W'e that the line will do a large bu siness in that way. On Monday two gentlemen handed us nearly .?4U0 for the Hospital Fund, which we turned over to the President of the Cumberland llospituJ A=>ociation, who will see to its prompt and appropriate applica tion to the noble object designed by the donors. Any further contributions left at this office, either fur this purpose or for the r*^lief of the unfortunate people of Washington, will be properly disposed of. CoL. .loH.N K. Murcu’so.n.—We have graat plea sure in stating that a dispatih was received here yesterday from Capt. David H. Murchison, contain ing the gratifying assurance tliat his brother. Col. John U. Murchison, was not killed, but was in. tlic bauds of the enemy, dangerously wounded in the head. W’e trust that ho will bt- spared to his family and his country. Likct.

He was not satisfied with v.'iat had recen'ly become, by location in Raleigh, a sirte position on the stall oJ’ his fathe.', Lt. Gen. Holmes, but preferred one near the flashing of the guns.' He obtain d pcniiis^jion, therefore, to leave Raleigh and go to V'irginia. Not being able in Richmond to obtain the transfer from his e.visting staff appointment to anothor that was offered to him in the field, he volunteered in the .5th cavalry. A letter to the Kditors trom a member of that Regiment says: “Lieut. Holmes came to us only a short time since and volunteered his services for the present campaign. In every engagement with the enemy he acted with great gallantry.” Mr. Hoi.dkn amonu the Yankkks.—Under this head we published on the 23rd ult. a very remarka ble statement by a “Paroled Prisoner” of the effect upon the yaukees of the Standard’s Editorial and comiuunicated articles. 'I'he statement mast have produced a sensation wherever it was read. We had a reqoust from one gentleman in a neighboring coun ty to print a large number of handbill copies of it, at his expense, for circulation. From another ‘ Paroled Prisoner” we have just THE COMMENCEMENT AT TUE UNIVERSITY IN 1864. Seventeen humlred and eight diplomas, "pro bonit lioti- btu flfiwnt, have now been granted to Baccalaureates at Chapel Hill. It is well for the givers that they have l>een given in Ijatin, for now f,h« public caunut in gene ral deny the propriety of the gift.

Hol den’s paper leads them to believe that North Caro lina is about to desert her sister States and return to Lincoln’s embrace—hcnce their joy.” The writer of ike above has filled a political sta tion. hut he is a gentleman of unimueachable charac ter, and there is not the slightest doubt of the entire truthlulness of Ills statement. As to the author of the article signed a ‘•Paroled Prisoue’*. " we repeat what we said at the time, ‘• The wr|ier is no politi- rian. His pursuits before the war had as little coi>- nectu'u with politics as with arms—none whate\er with either. 11 is high personal character is a gua rantee for the truthfulness of his statements.” We do not suppose he ever v^rote a political artiele. but rather that his habita of life Itf him to be a corre spondent of the North Carolina Pn‘sl>yteriau. Those people who pretend that the letter was fab- ricaU'd for political purposes do not believe what they say. They hiou- that we would never be guilty of such a trick, nor allow any one to do it through our columna. I'he writers of both the article and the above letter were captured while leading their com mands in battle, and, along with hundreds of other officers, suffered imprisonment for long weary months. That they give truthful statements of what came within their knowledge, there is no doubt whatever. A Pai-er kok thk Times.—We have often had oc- casiou to notii e the Standard’s habit of ignoring the army news. Confederate victories, aud such things, and devoting its columns to the far more important political aspirations of W, W^. Holden. Twenty lines sufficed the Standard to tell of Hoke’s great Ply mouth victory, but twenty columns are not enough to glorify W. W. Holden and Gov. Vance. The Standard has not yet found room to publish the correspondence between Gov. Vance and President l>avis, for that correspondence might open the eyes | joined Mr. J. H. WiUinms to Cary Peters of I’orts of its readers to the unfouuded nature of its com plaints against both of these officers. But instead of that really important official correspondence it devotes nearly eight of the twelve columns of it' last Satur- day s issue to matters relating to the Governor’s election, and only one and a half columns to those great events that had occurred in Virginia during that week. In that issue of the Standard, under the appropri ate caption of “Hard Run—More Humbnggery,” Mr. Holden, aftei a wool:'^ delay, noticps the certi ficates of Messrs. Hamptou and Horton. As in the case of the Vance and l>avis correspondence, the Standard does not publish those certificates. 'I'hat too, might open the eyes of its readers. Mr. Hol den .says ‘he has no recollection of any sufh . onver- sation as those gentlemen describe:—' ■ H’e enijasre in hundred.-) of conversations during nioiiMi of which we retnin no distinct rc'collcitivn, and We cannot, therefore, be sure, us no one can be surn, tliat we have net usel cortain words or e.xproHsions.

One of these, Mr. Rogers of Wakn county, died the week dred prisoners taken. Other diapatchesj, eijnaily fabulous, from Butler and other sources, are published, probably with the view of influencing the action of the Republican Convention, which met at IJaltimore yesterday, tjold is quoted at I'JH. ^u7uiress.—, June h.—The Senate sus tained the I’resident’s veto of the joint resolution e.jemptiiig editors and employees of magazines and periodicals from military service. Also, the biU in creasing Ordnance officers, returned by the Presi dent. The appropriation bill passed without amend ments. The House joint resolution of thanks to Gen.

Frnrathe Valley of Virginia.—We have unpleas ant news from the Valley. Our forces have sus tained u reverse there, with the loss of a very valua ble general, William K. .loiies. Our forces, under Gen. Jones, met the (jtieiiiy at New Hope. 10 or l‘i miles from Staunton, at 11 o’clock on Sundaj'. 'I'he enemy had nine or ten thousand infantry, a large train of artillery, and a heavy force of cavalry. Our forces were driven back lirou^ti atixiinton and towards Waynesboro’, (ien.

Srnlinel, 'Ith i’injniia Arrnu /terns.—In the fight of Friday night, it is said our troops after levelling the breast works captured from the enemy, so as to permit our artillery to play over them, retired. The enemy, supposing we still held them, advanced in lines ten deep to the ^sault, when our artillery opened apon them with grape and canister, mowing down the first line, which fell back upon those advancing, when our artillery firing into the mass slaughtered them by thousands. I’he Medical Director of Anderson’s (Longstreet’s) corps states that up to yesterday morning the totai number of casualties in the corps, killed, wounded and missing, in the fights around Richmond, is only hro hundred and sirfi/ three. This corps, it will be recollected, has taken part in nearly every en gagement since the enemy crossed the Pamunkey. It is said that seven hundred dead and badly •unded Yankees were counted iu front of Hoke’s line after the fight; and, what is most surprising, Hoke only had two men killed. five hundred wagons is employed in Cease!^—A file bites yon.—Riileujk Confederate. •iNOTHRR I.OOK IN THK KALKIDFSCOPK. From the Raleigh Standard, June 7, 1864. “If ii-e had been in his [Gov’r Vance’s] place, while we would have yielded every proper and just support, and that cheerfully and promptly, to the Confederate Government, we would have seen to it at the same time that our State was respected, as it has not been under his Administration.” From the Raleigh Standard, Oct. 2, 1863. “If Gov. Vance had been defeated in 1862, civil liberty in this State would long since have been trampled down, and Bastiles filled with victims suf fering for opinion’s sake would have been establish ed in nearly every County. The military power would have triumphed over civil law, and the arms of our soldiers would, if possible, have been turned against their owjj countrymen. W’'hen we review the history of the last two years, and sec what our people have escaped by the defeat of the Destruc tive candidate for Governor, and the election of Gov, Vance, we cannot be sufficiently grateful for the suf frages of the soldiers and people in August, 1862. which rescued liberty in this State from the grasp of military power, and secured to the people the prar- tical exercise of the right of free thought und free expression ••No 4>i>vt>rnor »f thi» Sta.te, HlQce the timos that tried meu’s souls iu the old revolution, has had gra ver or more perplexing responsibilities on his should ers than Gov. Vance. It is simply impossible for him so to act as to please every oue. 11 should be con stantly borne in mind that he is a sworn officer, smd that his oath binds him to see that the Confederate laws are enforced If he has not obtained for his State all that was justly due her, it must be remembered that he has to deal with a stubborn and perverse ad- miniistration at Richmond; and that much of that which has been obtained has been forced from those, who, whether from accident or design, have been singularly unfortunate in their course towards the people of North Carolina.” , From Eastern A' C.—The yankee Newbern Times of the 28th says that 40 yankees were killed and 17 wounded by the torpedo explosion noted in last Ob server. rOR TBS obsmmvmb.

Along a line of about 100 yards, directly in front of our right extreme, aud over a broken woodland, lie the dead bodies of 700 yankees, heaped in con fused piles of two, three and half a dozen I’hey fell on Friday afternoon. The fight which led to this splendid result began about 5 o’clock p. The men of Granbury’s brigade of Texan.=! were at reat in line of battle, unprotected by stockade or ritle-pits, and hardly expecting an advance, when their pickets descried a body of the enemy moving up the liill through the rough timber. They ap proached in an easy nonchalant manner, bearing a white flag. As soon as this was percelvtvl, orders were given to reserve fire, and they actually came within thirty paces of our line. It was a heavy col by two lines of reserve, und the the peaceful symbol and signs were not alow to detect the snare, thirty paces before us, and one of their officers cried out "you’re* surrounded; snrren der.” There was a single instantaneous reply. Along Difr whole line leaped the fire from 1200 trusty Texan rifles, while Keys opehed au enfilading fire with a howitzer on their left. A sanguinary con diet en sued. reaching more or less across Cleburne’s front, but falling principally upon Granbury. It lasted until 8 o’clock. At that hour the enemy fled pre cipitately. They lost-2.500 wounded, and left us 200'jprisouers and 700 dead bodies to put in the ground. The sight is horrible. For a hundred ,j?ards you can .scarcely tread without stepping over the' mangled forms. Most of them are shot through head. One fellow was examined and found to havo receiv- wonii^erlul.
