"Oh, yes," replied the Federal, "he is in the Valley, and has been largely reinforced." "Indeed," was the rejoinder; "now what would you say if I was to tell you that Stonewall is now in the rear of your army on the Chickahominy, with a fair prospect of giving McClellan a worse rout than he gave Banks on the Shenandoah?" The Federal started as if he had received another shock from a bomb-shell, and at once subsided into silence. Another Batch of Yankees. There arrived at the Confederate States Military Prison on Sunday, June 29th, two hundred and seventy-one Yankee prisoners of war, including the following officers, viz: Major D. Davidson, 4th U.

The members of Congress from Pennsylvania will not support the new tariff bill, unless a change is made that will do justice to the iron interest of our State. This is fully resolved upon by the entire delegation. Railroad iron is taxed $1.56, while no protection is given it by the new tariff.

A greater part of the force here are throwing up earthworks on Bolivar Heights. The supplies are plenty. It was rumored yesterday that the rebel General Ewell was advancing on New creek with four thousand men. The Twenty-third Illinois and Eighty-seventh Tennsylvania regiments were sent there this morning. Gen. Kelley is fully able to receive Ewell. Jackson is by this time checked, and Fremont Banks and Shields have joined their forces to pursue him.

Pope with a view to important military arrangements in Virginia. McClellan, it seems, was too slow, while affairs generally in the Valley have gone away with the Federalists. It seems that Blenker is superseded by Carl Shurz, "Fremont is falling back;" "Shields has fallen from grace," and "McDowell has fallen from his horse," so injuring himself as to be hors de combat.
