July 1861 Home

We have intelligence by Telegraph, "important if true" Passengers who arrived yesterday in Richmond state that Gen Johnson had attacked Gen. Patterson of the Lincoln army & repulsed him three times with great slaugbter. 
That he had telegraphed to Genl Beauregard for re-inforcements & was about to shell the town of Martinsburg in which the enemy had taken shelter. Later arrivals at Richmond confirmed these accounts & they were believed at the war office. 
Congress convened in Washington on the fourth & received the Presidts message, a synopsis of which comes to us by Telegraph. 
In Baltimore the Lincolnites are using their power in crushing the spirit of the people. The city Police have been displaced & Federal officers put in their place. Arrests & imprisonments have been made & the most tyranical measures adopted for subduing & crushing the people.
