Gen. Butler. It is again announced that the old hero at Fortress Monroe, "Bombastes Furioso," is to leave that post, and, as it is expressed, for one of "more active service." This is refreshing intelligence. We would like to know why Butler does not find the service "active" enough in the Peninsula? If he has been pining for employment, why did he not accompany Pierce to Bethel? Why has he not fulfilled his various threats of taking Richmond and Norfolk? What has he done at Fortress Monroe except capture contrabands, steal chickens, and defile and burn private property? The miserable pretender! In what other military service on the face of the earth could such an egregious humbug be tolerated? We learn that he was hugely delighted at the result of the great battle of Manassas, which proved that other people can lose a fight as well as Beauregard, and that Scott and he will go down to posterity in the same category,
Gen. Scott. It was always the great boast of Gen. Scott's friends, before the battle of ManassGen.

He Ought to change his name. Alexander the Great hearing that there was a man of the same name with himself in his army, and that he was a notorious coward, sent for him, and said unto him, "fight better, or change your name." Ought not old Scott to profit by this example? He lost the battle of Manassas. He confesses himself to be a great coward. Why, then, should he cling to "Winfield," a name indicative of victory? Why does he not write "Losefield" as descriptive of his present status?
e also. It is said that an army and flotilla (consistent with treaty stipulations) will be employed upon Canadian waters. This contemplated measure appears to afford satisfaction there. Several vessels of war are preparing to leave England for the American coast. German anxiety respecting the war issue. A Berlin correspondent, writing on the 31st of July, states that the anxiety in the Prussian capital respecting the war news from America was intense. The probable movements of Gen. Scott and the tactics of Beauregard were canvassed in every place of general resort, and the geography of the United States has been studied in all well-informed circles most attentively. The people sympathized with the Union cause. Hopes of the Confederate Commissioners in Europe. The Paris correspondent of the Independence Bulge states that the Jeff. Davis commissioners in Europe had still hopes of the ultimate recognition of the independence of the Southern States by England and Fr

ered to the perfidious Ampudia. When the war broke out with Mexico he rallied a sand of Texan warriors on the banks of the Guadalupe, and set out for the seat of war on the Rio Grande. The company arrived four days after the battles of Pala Alto and the Resaca. His company was accepted by General Taylor, and he was afterwards employed in the daring scouting expedition towards Monterey, in which battle, as well as that of Buena Vista, he won imperishable renown. He afterwards joined Gen. Scott's army, and continued with it to the conquest of the city of Mexico. For his gallant services, he was honored with a national reputatoa, and the office of U. S. Marshal of Texas was given him by President Pierce. Gen. McCullough was married three or four years since, and a characteristic story is told of him when his first child, a boy, was born. that he insisted, to the great horror of his young wife, in having the youngster christened "Buffalo Hump," in honor of a particular frien
hole power of their States must be used, and all their credit pledged, if the rebellion is to be crushed. The expenditure of a vast sum may be a good investment, while a smaller outlay will only be money thrown away. Accordingly, millions of dollars are voted with an alacrity to which even the British Parliament has hardly attained. But if Congress votes large sums, and the Executive spends them, the Northerners will certainly want something for their money.--President Lincoln and General Scott will be expected to prosecute the war vigorously, and, if report is to be believed, the hour of action was approaching. The march and victories of Gen. McClellan have filled the Unionists with joy, and the ill-fortune of one or two former encounters is quite forgotten in the hopes which this brilliant opening of the campaign inspires. Whether the advance be made from the Potomac, or the campaign begin from the direction of Fortress Monroe, it cannot be doubted that the fighting will be
r officers to go to their several duties. The officers, too, are fully dissatisfied as the men. I am informed that not less than 42 of the officers resigned lately in a single day, and the number of commissions thrown up since the battle of Bull Run is said to be about one hundred and eighty. All these are of the three years volunteers. But it is not only amongst the volunteer officers that the spirit of discontent has displayed itself. The appointment of Gen. McClellan, although it is acquiesced in, is felt by the whole of the regular army as founded upon a principle grossly unjust and derogatory to them. If every officer who loses a battle is to be superseded, it will soon be impossible to find men willing to accept responsible commands. It is believed that both General Scott and General McDowell feel very keenly the rebuke which is implied in placing over them a young officer who never led a squadron in the field, and who is much their junior in years and service.

Books for subscriptions to the loan will be opened in all the cities and towns in the United States. A letter from Martinsburg reports that the Confederate cavalry are constantly killing the Federal pickets. The correspondent of the N. Y. Tribune, says that many of the disasters to our various regiments was in consequence of the mutiny among the three months volunteers who refused to go to Tortugas. The Herald's correspondent says that numberless incidents go to show that the Confederates are on the eye of attacking the Federal ones. The Baltimore Secessionists have received intelligence that the Confederates are gradually working their way towards Washington. Gen. Scott doubts this, but Gen. McClellan, who pretends to know Gen. Beauregard's mode of combination, anticipates an early attack from some point on the Potomac.
