The Virginia Sentinel. The senior editor of this excellent paper, R. M. Smith, Esq., left Alexandria on Friday morning, passing through the lines of sentinels without detection. He publishes a card in the Enquirer of yesterday, addressed to his patrons, in which he gives a history of events in Alexandria, and adds: "Itn could it have stooped so low as to do obeisance with mouth in the dust." The readers of the Sentinel, and the public at large, will be glad to learn from Mr. Smith that, in anticipation of the probability of this inroad, he had removed his large and valuable job office, presses, types, &c., and otherwise reduced the office dmit of the continued publication of the paper. The arrangements, if any, which will be made to resume the speedy publication of the Sentinel will be duty announced. Subscribers who are indebted to that paper, and who desire to assist Mr. Smith in his present exigency by making payment, will please address him at Warrenton, Va.
Dispatch.] Annapolis, May 27, 1861. I am enabled by a gentleman going direct to your city to send you a few lines from this point. The grounds and buildings of the Naval Academy are now occupied by the Thirteenth Brooklyn Regiment, Col. Smith, numbering about nine hundred men. They are mostly clerks from the city of Brooklyn,--genteel young fellows of good address, short wind and impassible legs. With these are amalgamated one hundred and fifty "fire laddies" from Williamsburgs whselves, and the daily insults which are experienced by men and women, especially the latter, is rolling up against them a debt of hate which the people of Maryland will one day wipe out in blood. To conciliate the people as far as possible Col. Smith at this point is returning to their masters fugitive slaves. No less than eleven have been thus disposed of within the last three weeks. The people understand the bait, however, and are not to be caught with such chaff. The latter are by no m
0th, 1861. Why don't more of your ladies come out to gladden the hearts of the poor devils incarcerated here. If there is anything more than another that they would appreciate it is a "sunny smile." Is their absence owing to want of attraction in the artillery manoeuvres? If so, that is a poor excuse. Ladies, attention! We know you enjoy the sight of a set of fine looking men, and we flatter ourselves we can give you a feast; or, if the Cadets are an inducement, I assure you that Col. Smith, with the assistance of a number of ladies of acknowledged taste, has stationed here the "flower of his flock." It is anything but flattering to see the number who drive by to the other encampments every bright afternoon, not even deigning to cast a smile on our gallant laddies. Don't be so partial. We are, with a few exceptions, the finest looking men this side of "Dixie," and besides, President Davis is daily expected, and if you would see him and us, come early and bring your kni
d sticks back from his passage with his regiment through Baltimore by unarmed citizens, he has recently signalized his cowardice by offering insult and contumely to the people of that city, when their hands were tied.--We have seen the miserable creature snubbed, spit upon and insulted beyond endurance to a gentleman, with no other response than trembling fear and poltroonery. During the sessions of the Charleston Convention he was bought with a price, and when called to an account by young Smith of California for some Yankee trick, he begged like a whipped spaniel, and cowered before the gaze of a brave and honest man. The man, in fact, is a brute. He looks like one--acts like one. For such a creature to talk of conquering the South! For such a miserable poltroon to threaten to invade Virginia!" And again: "Gen. Butler says that his face is Southward, and that he won't take a step backwards. That is very likely. Walking backwards would be too slow a business for him.
Of the military movements now in progress consequent upon this affair, your correspondent considers it improper now to speak. The killed and wounded. Alexandria, June 18. --So far as can be ascertained, on what is believed to be good authority, the following are among the killed and wounded of the Ohio troops: Killed — John Barnes and Daniel Sullivan, both of Company G. Wounded,--Mercer, of Company H, (he is in a dying condition, having an arm shot off;) privaves Ulmer and Smith, of Company G. One of the killed and three of the wounded were brought to Alexandria this morning. Two of the wounded have been taken to Washington Hospital to-day. Another account. Alexandria, June 18,12 M. --Alexandria is full of wild rumors as to the affair at Vienna, but after sitting them the facts seem to be about as follows: As has been stated, a reconnoissance was made by United States forces from this city as far up as Vienna, fourteen miles from Alexandria, on Sunday,

y proposition to quiet the present disturbances should emanate from the Republicans. He believed the Constitution, It carried out in letter and spirit, would be sufficient, without a resort to legislative enactments or compromises. The House refused to excuse Mr. Hawkins, of Florida, from serving on the Committee, by a vote of 96 years to 101 noes. Mr. Hawkins then said he would not serve. Mr. Boyce, of South Carolina, asked to be excused from serving on the Committee. Mr. Smith, of Virginia, said he was surprised the Republicans should shirk the debate. He was in hopes that the views of every section would have been presented, and wished to see what the Committee would present for the action of the House, and whether anything could be done to allay the present excitement. The House refused to excuse Mr. Boyce. Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, asked to be excused, but was refused. Mr. Stanton, of Ohio, had no hope that the Committee could do anything, and

y-four hours. When we took our horses from the cars they were quite fatigued, not having been fed or watered during the trip. They were soon attended to, and now look much better. We regret the absence of one of our corps, whom we left sick of fever at Ashland, Mr. D. Shepperson. He will be able to join us in a few weeks, however, as he is recovering his strength rapidly. Staunton is a delightful place. Our camp is upon a high hill overlooking a beautiful valley, dotted over with tents and alive with soldiers. The Pittsylvania troop, commanded by Capt. Flournov, are with us. Our Captains, Smith and Flournoy, are gallant young officers, and pay every possible attention to the men under their charge. Our Lieutenants are very popular, and promise to make good officers in a very short time — Our friends at home may rest assured that we will do our best to repel the invaders of our soil. We leave to-morrow morning in good spirits and fine health. Yours, in haste, P.
