to that of France, and as well disciplined, will burn to resent the wrongs that have been offered to the country, and they will rejoice at being able to display abroad the valor for which there will be no longer a field at home. It would be worth while to know what the Secretary of State thinks of this style of writing at present. His frame of mind just now, perhaps, is not suited to such strong expressions, particularly as the people they are meant to arouse only laugh at them. Thursday, July 25, 1861. Last night there was an alarm that the enemy were advancing. General Scott and his staff were roused up in the night by messengers from the outposts. There was a similar alarm in Alexandria, but the report was untrue. The Confederates, however, have advanced their pickets within six miles of the latter place. The War Department is in ignorance of their general movements, and can get no intelligence from the country. Several regiments marched out of the city, as their time w

Crossman, Deputy Quartermaster-General, has his at the residence of an officer in the secession army, whose name I cannot just now think of. To-day the Second Massachusetts regiment marched for Harper's Ferry, and this whole column, it is expected, will soon be moved there. --N. Y. Time, July 26. A correspondent of the Philadelphia Press makes the following statement:-- Hagerstown, Md., July 25, 1861. sir:--You will confer a favor upon the friends of justice by giving space to the accompanying statement. I make this request in behalf of Pennsylvania, whose commanding General has been accused of dereliction of duty. The following is based upon the information of citizens of Berkeley county, Virginia, well known to me, who, having been impressed in the rebel force, deserted therefrom: At the time the first advance into Virginia was ordered General Johnston's force numbered over
Doc. 119.-General Rosecrans' orders. Headquarters Department of the army of Occupation of Western Virginia, Grafton, July 25, 1861. General orders No. 1.--By authority of the War Department, Maj.-Gen. McClellan has been relieved from the command of this Department, and ordered to Washington. The command of the Department of the Ohio and Army of Occupation, Western Virginia, devolves upon Brig.-Gen. Rosecrans, U. S. Army, who assumes the command. 2. The First Brigade of the Army of Occupation will, until further orders, consist of the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Indiana, and Third Ohio regiments, and Burdsell's Cavalry and Loomis's Battery, to which will also be attached the Depot of Beverly, consisting of the Sixth Ohio, detachments of the First and Second Virginia regiments, and Bracken's Cavalry. 3. The Second Brigade will consist of the Seventh, Tenth, Thirteenth, Seventeenth Ohio, Mack's Battery, and Chicago Cavalry. 4. The Third Brigade will consist
Doc. 119 1/2.-Occupation of Charleston, Va. July 25, 1861. After passing a very tedious day in camp yesterday, and every thing after dress parade had quieted down to the preparations of the night, orders were very unexpectedly conveyed to the different commands to draw rations for a two days supply, and to be ready by five o'clock to-morrow morning to move forward upon the rebels. Every thing instantly changed from its former quietude to the wildest excitement. The boys were wild with delight at the prospect of a forward movement. Squads of men were here and there congregated, discussing the various scenes to be enacted — some singing with joy, music playing, and others cheering for their different commanders. Commodore Beltzhoover, of the river fleet, was busy as a bee in a tar bucket, transferring the chattels from boat to boat, making the necessary changes for the conveyance of the troops and stores of the army — as many as the boats could accommodate. At daylight on t

On the resolution of Andrew Johnson, declaring that the present civil war was forced on the country by the disunionists in the South; delivered in the United States Senate, July 25, 1861, the following debate occurred: Mr. Breckenridge said he could not vote for the resolution, because he thought it did not state facts. The present condition of the country was due to the refusal of the majority last winter to listen to any terms of compromise or conciliation. The attack on Fort Sumter was not a sufficient cause for a general war. It was a local difficulty, which he believed might have been settled, but the subsequent acts of the President and his constitutional advisers had done much to bring about a general war. I believe, sir, the gentlemen who represent the majority of the people are responsible for the failure to bring about an adjustment of the difficulty. I do not think the Congress of the United States is acting up to its wh

Doc. 121.-General McClellan's command. The following general order defines the extent of General McClellan's new command: war Department, Adjutant-General's office, Washington, July 25, 1861. First--There will be added to the Department of the Shenandoah the counties of Washington, Alleghany, in Maryland, and such other parts of Virginia as may be covered by the army in its operations. And there will be added to the Department of Washington the counties of Prince George, Montgomery, and Frederick. The remainder of Maryland, and all of Pennsylvania and Delaware, will constitute the Department of Pennsylvania, Headquarters Baltimore. The Department of Washington and the Department of Northeastern Virginia will constitute a geographical division under Major-General McClellan, United States Army, Headquarters Washington. Second--All officers of volunteer regiments will be subject to examination by a Military Board, to be appointed by this department with the concurrenc
as the St. George, apparently — was under steam off Charleston, a complete flotilla of small ocean traders and coasters continued to pass into the city, and out again, either regardless of, or insensible to, the presence of war ships. The numerous facts establishing the perfect inefficiency of the men-of-war, in regard to the stopping of commercial intercourse with ports before which they have appeared, could be elaborated to a great length. But even now, [the admiral, permit your correspondent to say, is writing about the 2d of June,] St. Marks, an important port, is not at all cut off from maritime trade, as one of my fleet saw all sorts of vessels enter and depart from it, without being impeded. Appalachicola was thronged with craft until a few days since, and four other ports are stated to be open to-day. A regular steamer communication is constantly kept up between Savannah, an important harbor in the State of Georgia, and some other ports.--N. Y. Times, July 25, 1861.

h Carolina. Thomas S. Metcalf, of Georgia. G. W. Mordecai, of North Carolina. C. T. Pollard, of Alabama. G. C. Torbett, of Tennessee. W. H. McFarland, of Virginia. W. C. Tompkins, of Louisiana. Second day. Richmond, July 25, 1861. The President having called the Convention to order, additional delegates presented themselves from South Carolina, Alabama, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. The Hon. C. G. Memminger, having been invited to take a seat in the Cotion to the plan submitted by Mr. Holmes, for the adjustment and final extinguishment of the public debt; but, without in any way impeaching its acknowledged merit, they decided not to express any opinion as to the expediency of its adoption by the Government, for whose purpose its adoption could be best determined, in their opinion, by the Secretary of the Treasury. All of which is respectfully submitted. G. A. Trenholm, Chairman. Richmond, July 25, 1861. --Charleston Courier, July 29.
