The number actually engaged our own rids was nearly fifty Ihe is said to have begun as four o'clock yesterday moTning; the heavy iightiug between eight and nine o'clock.

The period has been aa recent akaea of that little was to be before the attention of that body which hud ate been in the previous Message. the President has coiil-ied himself chicly to a f-utticg rebuke of some of the positions taken -jy Li.ii au in that functionary's late Messngc to the Northern Congress.

The Meseage is admirably written, and is most just and set ere in its allusions to the course of conduct pursued by tue North in the war are waging on We are triad see tbe position by Pr. dent iv respect to the policy af retaliation. There but one cure for th. b.rlariiies which tbo North are syetematic-aliy pr.ttiking uj-ou Southern flbBaSM and property to tall into their power in this war and Iho country will uuauiuious.iy sustain the Presiilent in determiuatioit la mcci their outrages Ivy measures as aeiere- if they are lose eoafsa i-tnd brutal. An eye for an eye, and a tooth lor a tooth, is tbe true text for our policy towards such an enemy as we have to deal ia this contest.

There is a large class ut' barbarities which the South cannot expect ta avoig. iv Their ruthless war upon women aud cannot bo imitated even in Their infamous petty practices of pig stcaliog nnd heo-roost cannot be for tt Is rep-lure to the instinct- of Southern twldicr to meet patty ihel't by petty injuries low aud vile. modes af severity, loss outrageous and ton however, can be atlopted, and we trust that atcrd 'omplete -atisfaction will be exaated tlirotigb'ht-ppi-onera that fall into our The enemy hail his Rich Mountain suecc.a. He will ii more fortune of thai sort. We from him many prisoners; and we lib all hive it in our power to puniah with fig it whatever enormities, he tuu.v be guilty of in the lutiiie.

We admire the iimiiif-ss of tone with which i'tvia hijs given Lin. to hir in this regard. The occasion of tho condemnation af our privateer- in New York was admirably chosen for sending 'this admonition. If the cowardly Ynnkec ahall to i-Uiet judicial murder and ignoniny up -n those bravo men, we meet the act by consigning au equal number of tv the exact fate which may he vuited upon thoae mv.

There are many people in the nemmim'ity rcrak aaeagh to boliave it an easy task for ilea. orr ft. invade Virginia as far sa llkhraond, from the line of the Potomac It Iho ludertsktag had been oue at all facile ol ac rompHshment, Gen.

We shall pass over the military have been planted in enemy's path at Winchester, at at AfHa Creek and in the Yorktown peninula. These obstructions may be regarded as Having had some influenco in checking the advancing career of the invader.

There arc tilers, howewr, which, if oven these should do would still make the some-hat difficult of performance. Tho irmy of invasion would of course have Mbe of huge dimensions. Oen. of iotisistd in doing nothing al all unless he ha; the means in superabundance of accomplishing what be undertakes; ocyond peiadventure. He ia a timid and cowaidly General, and requires double the force aud equipment for the execution ol" his pianr, would be expected by any other General.

A more enterprising and daring commander might be willing to undertake a demonstration upon Richmond with thirty-live or forty thousand mci: Gcieral would scarcely venture upon it with lees than fifty thousand, supported ly large a reserve at available potato on this side of the Potomac; and thia tescrve supported by still another on th- Maryland nde, and ia Washington (rf fifty or a uundred thou-and more. This i. certinuiy too a preparation for milking assurance and Gen. abo would nave a reputation to protect, as well as a campaign to -Bake, a General of lbs aFiurance doubly-sure stamp. The moving 'if an invading army iv hostile country a prodigious undertaking.

Its list requirements would bo an immense nuinoer ol, for the three services, of cai airy artillery and transportation. The Bavalry arc the and ear. of army, and an invading 'loluiun would have to be strongly furnished with thir' aim of tho -crvice. Three or lour ihousard cavalry would be a small complemoiil lor aa invading column fifty thousand rtrong- I'a. would have to bo very strong aug artillery, complement Hones rt'juirtd for this service should beea aa thai for the cavalry.

tatioii, too, of baggage and provi-ions for such a force would be prodigious. Thi- service alone would require iix hoiaes, and fourth as many baggage wagons. Thus, ten thousand hersea would be a small estimate of the number of animals required for an invasion af Virginia projected aj-tiinst llichmond. We do aot believe tbat Gen.

The North is a c.u_U_- of horse-, aud it ie iext to -Bpoe-ibk to Ihe requisite ruppCea for any purposes.

If the people af will keep thi. great fact in mi-d, they have al once 1 of steadying their ner-. and of rendering the progress cf the enemy iuto our interior next to impossible. His approach should be the signal for tearing up the track and blowing up the bridges upon every neighboring railroad, and 1 of lilling country road- with every obstruction which admit of and furnish. The march oi ii- over a campaign country is much slower usually supposed.

They took their chances in the Convention, and, through their champion, Caklilk, waged a steady warfare for the I'nion, gaining repealed victories in the of that body, to which the submitted like loyal citizens and honorable gentlemen. They at last defeated, by a large majority, the Secession Ordinance, and to that tbe Secessionists submitted, without raising a linger of nor, if the vent ion had adjourned immediately upon that anti vote, would there have been any resistance from any quarter ta the execution cf its will. Not only this, but, having taken their chance- in the Convention, the Northweit took its chances st the polls, voting in heavy ma). against to Bsy nothing of the ioi.ign votes which were imported lor the occasion.

If they had succeeded in defeating the Ordinance at the polls, would they not expected tbe rest of the State to submit to tho supreme voice of the people?

For this purpose, an unusual naval force had been concentrated in Kumptou Roads, aimed to the top, aud that the arrangements were completed even to the extent of placing infantry aboard. lin'ortunately lor us, the project created so much debate among officers aud men iv the enemy's camp that Picayune became alarmed and relinnuished the plan, desiring counael from Washington.

Not a naval commander, except Fendergrast, it is understood, supported the wisdom of the proposed movement.
