M’>re Testimony —Mr. Ilolden has been de-
uounciog Henry Walser of Davidson as a “de
structive,” because he supports Gov. V'auco. Mr.
WalscT replies through the Conservative, closing
his letter thus;—
“I sec but one othor cbanco for Mr. Ilolden
to be made Governor, and that is to be appointed
military Governor, for he has failed to be made
Governor on his secession principles, and he will
c{ually fail iu his Convention scheme. The one
montioned is, therefore, the only chance left him
lie now denies that he ever advocated the calling
of a Convention ior the purpose of secoding from
tho Confederate Government. Has he forgotten

was dark aud gloomjr, that Grant would soon be

We have had a ghrious campaign on this side

Our little army has performed wonders. In
the short space of six weeks they have marched
seven hundred miles, fought three desperate bat

sand men, capturcd thirty four pieces of artillery,

They were tho most accommodating Generals we

Mr. hrank G. Watson, Ordnanee Agent for the
Irans-Mississippi Department, has arrived from
tho other side of the Mississiopi. He crossed
thf» nyer on the 23d of Jano, and brings late in-
tercs‘iDg and encouraging inteiligccce
He reports th«t all the available cavalry of the
popartment, some 20,0u0 in number, had started
for Missouri, under command of Gen. Wharton
of Texas. ’
Brig. Gen. Shelby bad crossed the Arkansas
river with 2,600 men, and was already in Mis
souri. Gen. Marmaduke had also crossed the
Arkans^; and Brig. Gen. Major had left Texas,
with o,000 men for the same State.
Maj. Gen. Price was chief in command in
MiMoun, and would advance with the infantry
and artillery as rapidly as possible. Maj. Gen.
Buckner has command in Arkansas; and Gen,
Magruder in Texas.
The yanktes had evacuated Little Rock.
Mi. Watson says that the report that Gen. R.
Taylor has been relieved, has no foundation as
far as he is aware, and that the General, insto«'d
ofTcsigning, was making his way towards New

The enemy this moi ning made a heavy advance
oa our extreme left and commenced severe skir-

an it'tentiou- to cross the river at Green’s terry.
The fkirmi.jhicg has coa inued to increase in in-
teci^it^y and fupidity up to this hour,,but without
any advtutage beirig sccured by cither p?rty. It
ia evideiit that the enemy is making this sudden
and persisteut deaionstration for the purpose of
attracting attention away from their operations in
some other important quarter. There cannot be
the slightest probability that Sherman will force
a battle in the present position ol both armies.
His evident intention is to insist on tremendous

Surely the turning point must be nearly reached.

From i'irjinia.—We are under obligations to
Caf t HazzeU, for a copy of tb« Richmond Ex-

oil 'wing summary:
^ A getitieman wiio left Charles City county on
iTitlay moruing, brought to Richmond the report
that Grau: was li .Jiag forces at Wilcox’s Wharf,
Jame.^ K'.ver. Other parties who reached the
•.'uy oo i'riday evctiing stated that a large nam-
L* r ji transports laden with troops, passed down
Le river dur*ng the day. These rumors gave
ii-ic to the opinion that Grant was withdrawing
’roiD Petirsburi^: and the unaccountable scillness
oi Urant oa Itiuriday night, and Friday, during
w.i’ch uoc a single sholl was thrown into Vctcrs-
burc, gwe strength to the opinion. Nothing

m \Vashington, on Wednesday morning, that a
large force of Confederates were at different points
on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, and great
consternation prevailed. The militia ol the neigh-

Attack on Mobile —-We learn from tho Cour
ier that reliable information has been received in
Charleston that a yankee fleet of gunboats and
Monitors is ready and about to sail from New
York to attack Mobile.
F^estruction of RosvofU,— VV’^e Icara from a re
liable source that all the factories at Rost ell were
burned on Thursday. The enemy seemed to pay
no attention to the protection demanded by tho
forui^T citizen owners, and their own promises
to prf.toct the property. Thus has been lost to
our Cuafedtraey a valuable property, estimated
at the least calculation, at five millions of dollars
yulucition. It cannot be replaced until the war
is o'. cr, and ia simply irreparable.
