McKee says he knows for a certainty be paid $60 for his commission. I do not think his military capacity would get it for him. But he is welcome to it, as I do not think the very enviable position to hold, when not capable. It will do very well to parade are and the streets, but in war you see what a man is made of. Better be a private in the rear rank, and know your duty and do it than be a General, and make a tool of yourself and be disgraced. "My honor and reputation is the immortal part of myself, and all that remains is only bestial" * * * I see by the papers this evening that Gen. McClellan is within five miles of Richmond with his army; so I expect you will receive this in the rebel Capital. It is rumored the rebels will retire from Richmond without ing a battle, but I am afraid they will give a hard ere.

McClellan's army on the Chickahominy. The mistake seems to have been committed on our side — by no means for the first time — of so placing our troops as to invite sucdetails yet to come may extenuate the disgrace that seems to have fallen upon it. The New York Times, on the contrary, speak of the battle as a victory; and McClellan, in his dispatch, me ly says of the fight on Sunday; "The enemy was everywhere repulsed" He admits, however, that the battle was a "desperate" one, with heavy loloped." A Baltimore paper says: Lieutenant Davis has succeeded, after some difficulty, in establishing communication between the land forces under General McClellan and the gunboats in the James river, below City Point. He describes the Galena as being so much cut up with the enemy's shot that she will be obliged to go
ith whom the wish is more than the father to the thought, who have hither to so dolorously proclaimed in the fullness of their hopes that Richmond must inevitably fall into the hands of the Yankees. But now that Southern chivalry has broken the lance of despotism, and made the second "grand army" seek safety alone in flight, they mentally exclaim, "Can such things be?" Those who believed and openly taught the idea that the fate of Norfolk and New Orleans would be the fate of Richmond when McClellan, the gust, should pronounce its doom, are now more amazed and self-stultified than was Macbeth at the imaginary appearance of Banquo. They dreamed in their imaginations that Richmond would now be a smouldering pile of shapeless rains, over which some reporter of the New York Herald could stalk at leisure, write at pleasure, and lie ad libitum! But lo! that beautiful city still stands in all us fair proportions, without even one "mortal wound upon its crown! How do you now feel, gentleme
rtion of the Federal account of Banks's stampede: In one of Banks's many dispatch as respecting his little mishap in the Valley he says that he had but two brigades of less that 4 00) all told This little force, according to his showing had about five hundred wagons, a of which, except fifty, were safely carried off into land. Now, this is a most marvellous story — What would an army of 4,000 men want with 500 wagons, unless every man wanted transportation for himself. If McClellan is as woll provided with wagons as Banks was assuming that he has 100,000 men, he should have 12,500 wagon!. We do not doubt that Banks had 500 wagons, for he was well fixed with every needful appliance, but we know that he lost more than fifty. We have seen a gentleman just from the Valley, who counted amongst Jackson's booty far more than this in one train, whilst he saw, piled up in the road, in two places, large numbers of wagons fully equal to the number Banks affirms to have los

A military Adventurer. In the early part of this war, Gen. McClellan wrote to a distinguished officer in the South, expressing his desire to serve in the Confederate army. If he dare deny the fact, and his recent reports prove that in mendacity he is the representative man of the Yankee nation, it can be demonstrated by suc to sentiment, and of late has shown a disposition to become as extreme in his antagonism as in his friendship for the South. There are various reasons for McClellan's change of demeanor from the time when he commanded in Western Virginia to the present moment. But the controlling motive is the intense selfishness which led y to propitiate the Northern mob. Scott was too allow for them, because he had not succeeded in three months in subjugating the South, and they had discovered in McClellan a young Napoleon, who would come up to the mark in time and efficiency. He himself proclaimed that the war was to be "short and d sperat: " he has proclaimed th
