TORIVICOVIVN EVACUATED -
' Yesterday afternoon we received
patch from the Supervisor. of TelegraPhit
at . Fortress Monroe, announcing that
Yorktown was evacuated on Saturday
!tight, and that they left a large amount
of equipage, which they could not-tistroy
tor fear of being seen. A subsequent
dispatch' from Geo. McClellan,
well us the first , -we published yesterday
io tin extra edition, says "We have the
ramparts, with guns ammunition and
cutup eqaipage... We .hold, the entire line
of-the works, -which the engineers report
to be very' strong-,.''''' Gen. McClellan fur
ther, reports, titatlhe whole of his cavalry
force and horse' artillery are in pursuit ;
that our • gunboats have `gone up ,, York
River, and: that Franklin's division has
also "been moved up the river, with a's
many more troops as- transports could be
found to convey., Our forces have also
taken 'Gloucester, and to this is added a
promise by therComnianding General that
he will push the-enemy -to the -wall. ; A
later dispatch says the. evacuation com
menced on Thursday lust, the Rebels
fearing that with-the aid of the river fleet
our forces might get into their rear and
thus cut off all means of retreat. This
dispatch sets down the number of guns
captured at'7s. ,
We have later news from Mexico con
firmatory of the completeness of the rup
ture between the Allied invaders, and the
determination of Fraxce to pursue her
purpose of subjucation alone. , President
Ju3trez,• meanwhile has ordered out all
citizens between the ages of 20 and 60,
to make such resistance as he can.
Itlemphis papers of the 29th say that
it has been resolved by a meeting of the
citizens to burn the city in case of the
approach! of the Union fleet.
The Retiring Rehrls.
The Rebels in lower VirgiLia during
Saturday night hastily evacuated their
strong line of fortifications at Yorktown
retreating up the Pe'uinsula toward Rich
mond. Of course, they carried off many
of their cups and sums, but left a punt
ber of heavy siege-pieces, with a consid
erable amount of camp equipage and ord•
•riance stores. We prfsume they have
retreated to a new and stronger line of
defenses, which they have been construct
ing while Gen. M'Clellan was preparing
to take that before which he had set
down. Ws wish they had staid and tried
-conclusions at Yorktown, though the ret
rograde movement must tend to demoral
ize their rank and tile, beside depleting
their scanty stores. Gen. McClellan
would probably have opened fire ou them
this,•tuorning had they remained. He
irillifollOw them up steadily, and bring
them to a speedy issue if possible;. and
it may be that they will find an uti2xpect
vd obstable in the way of their retreat in
the Nice of Geo. Franklin, which having
;fever landed from the transports, was
ready to start in immediate put-, ult. and
was nested at once by Gen. McClellan
toward West Point.

It may tfien be his intention to lead the

desperate effort to meover New Orleans.
This, however, involves the surrender , of
his present line of defense with Memphis

while we do not decide that he will or will
not try it, would be a confession that his
cause is hopeless.

And •now, if Beauregard shuns a tight-at
Corinth, and Jeff. Davis runs from behind
his tutrenehtoents at Yorktown, how will
it be. poSSible to make the great body of
the rebel soldiery longer believe that they

they expect to win by perpetual running?
Large as their territory is (we mean was)
it will be all gone if they keep retreating

The Radical Abolitionist's idea of liberty is
—"3laine Law," "No Church that is not my

Bible that is not the Bible as I understand it.'
"No Constitutiim that is not as Wendel Phil

sanction adultery," "No Constitution thatis
not after the heart of Jeff. Davis."
The surest sign is given of the hopeless
ness of,a cause when its adherents resort to
desperate means far the accomplishment of a
pUrpose. The Rebels have been for some
months pest in the greatest frenzy from the
fact being practically demonstrated that they
could not save their crops and immovable
wealth from falling into the hands of the
lintonists—as our army advances—by any
other means than, their destruction. Cotton
has been burned, vessels sunk, homesteads
destroyed, towns sacked, and now they are
cutting the levee along the Mississippi, inun
dating the country and destroying everything
that could not be removed. The people object
to this practice but as they are under the con
trol of a few crazy military leaders and the
mob—and the latter having no property to
lose care nothing for the property of others—
they are powerless to prevent. Such is the
fruit of treason.
The French Minister at Washington has

in the rebellion under a pledge of active
northern support, whiCh they have failed to
receive. All they have, and all they hope for,
they have placed in peril. Theis pride and
honor alike forbid them to retrace their steps.
