A., Comd'g, &c.: Sir: Consideratihe engagements — notwithstanding the efforts made by Pope's officers to remove them under the permission grant from the Star of the 30th, and appears as a note to Pope's report of the 29th: We have positive information that Pope came up with and attacked the enemy again a few minutes past 9 this morning. Fitz John Porter b erroneous, judging from the above dispatch from General Pope. The only possible line of even temporary r, Franklin ought to be within supporting distance of Pope with a large force — sufficient with Fitz John Portederates on their Capital.

safety in retreat. Perfectly astonished at the confidence and courage of our men, the rebels came up handsomely, within good range, and, taking our fire, a semi-orderly commotion was observed in their ranks. While this encouraged our men, Gen. Pope saw what was the intent of it all. Almost as quick as thought the bugles sounded the order to the rebel phalanxes, and instantly the huge mass of rebels was hurried against our left wing. The gallant divisions of Reno and Schenck — heroes Dispatches received from Fairfax Court-House, about seven miles from Centreville, state that no firing had been heard up to 11 o'clock to-day, (Sunday.)

If it be true that the President has said that "Gen. Pope was celebrated for three thingsGen. Pope was celebrated for three things — great brains, great indolence, and a want of strict veracity," the loss of public confidence in that General's telegrams will not bias his judgment unduly.

The President knows, also, how the discipline of Gen. Pope's army has deteriorated since he took the field. He knows the causes of this deterioration, a
The Nativity of Picayune Butler --A gentleman of this city yesterday informed us that Butler, the brute-beast, is a native of Jackson county, in this State, and that a brother of his, a highly respectable gentleman, now resides in that county.--He gave us the names or several persons well known in that part of Georgia--one living in Fulton county--who know Butler from his birth till he left the State. This is something we never heard before, and was, to us, an unpleasant announcement. We had always supposed he was a native of the only place that is fit to produce his like--Massachusetts; though we have observed this: when a Southern man becomes completely Yankeeized he is the meanest of all.
