tinue to-day until all the employees receive their wages. I observe that the volunteers in Washington have been told they will have to wait for their pay until after the meeting of Congress. I hear that things at the Navy-Yard are now in a way to work well, and that in a short time order and efficiency will reign. Progress has so far been made with the sloop-of-war Preble as to render one-half of her port-holes visible. In a short period she will be raised, and in due time docked. Gen. Huger I saw yesterday. He visited the Navy-Yard, and will assume the command of the forces here to-morrow. He is a sprightly, active, and energetic looking man, and no doubt will fulfill the public expectations which his reputation as a soldier justly warrants. Col. Jas. Gregory Hodges, formerly in command of the 3d Regiment Virginia Volunteers, left here to-day to report in Richmond. He is a young man, animated by a noble emulation, and bears with him the good wishes of the whole commun
as really burnt, the light would have been seen from the battery at Sewell's Point, and also at Fort Monroe, and there would have been no necessity of marching four thousand troops to the spot in order to ascertain the fact.

The oil had been previously removed to a place of safety. Our cit
Norfolk, May 25, 1861. The Monticello, Cumberland, Yankee, and Minnesota, are reported off Old Point. There is nothing special from Sewell's Point. Gen. Huger arrived yesterday. He relieves Gen. Gwynn, who will be stationed elsewhere. Col. H. was for some time stationed at Fort Monroe, and, by his official conduct, has endeared to him many friends. He is a skillful officer, and a gentleman of the true type. In the many positions he has filled, many will recognize the signal discharge of his official duties. We greet him here with warm hearts and generous hands. The ladies hereabouts, among other things, are engaged in making cartridges for the soldiers. They turn out thousands of these death missiles per day, besides attending to other duties. Truly do they deserve our unbounded praise. The practicing of guns from the Hospital battery in Portsmouth, took place yesterday. It was truly a grand sight to witness the immense streams of water ejected, as th
