he news of it was hailed with delight by the loyalists, it could not be considered a victory, in its proper sense. The Confederate army had escaped, with its cannon and most of its stores, thereby frustrating and deranging the plans of Halleck; and it was soon again ready for offensive operations. This result was charged to Halleck's tardiness; and experts declared their belief that, if he had remained in St. Louis a week Halleck's Headquarters at Corinth. this was the dwelling of Mr. Symington when the writer visited Corinth, late in April, 1866. it was one of the houses in the suburbs of the village that survived the war. longer, Grant, left free to act, would have captured Beauregard's army, supplies, and munitions of war. After the evacuation of Corinth, no military operations of importance were undertaken by the Grand Army of the Tennessee while General Halleck was in personal command of it.

urg. Pittsburg, Pa.,Dec. 24. --Intense excitement exists here to-day, in consequence of its being made public that United States Quartermaster Taliaferro was negotiating for the shipment from the Alleghany Arsenal, of seventy-eight guns to Newport, near Galveston Island, Texas, and forty-six more to Ship Island, near Balize, at the mouth of the Mississippi river, the apparent object being to strip the Alleghany Arsenal, and place the guns where the secessionists could get them. Major Symington, of Maryland, in command of the arsenal, declined to give the press any information on the subject. It seems the points referred to are new forts, never yet mounted. These guns were designed for their armament. The guns are ten-inch Columbiads, and carry thirty-two pounders. Carriages for them are being made at Watervliet, N. Y.

. Gen Heintzleman's chances for a regular Brigadier Generalship are considered good. The following regular army officers were dismissed from the service last year: Maj Gen Fitz John Porter, Colonel 15th; Maj Haller, 7th; Maj Davidson, 4th; and Capts Beall, 2d; Stivers, 7th; Mayer and Wilkinson, 12th; Woodson, 16th; Cady, 17th; Breslin and Kellogg, 18th; Goodwin, 10th. The act of July 17th, 1862, gave Lincoln discretionary power to retire all officers whose names have been borne on the army register 45 years, or who are 65 years of age, without submitting their cases to a Retiring Board. The recent retirement, under this act, of Gens Wool, Harney, and Brown; and Colonels Long, Thayer, Craig, Symington, Gates, Merchant, Dimick, Loomis, and Burke, together with the summoning of many field officers before the Retiring Board, is considered very strong evidence that the authorities intend to take full advantage of the act referred to by laying all old officers "on the shelf,"
