rine movements at the Navy-Yard and Arsenal to-day. The Pawnee left with a large three-masted schooner in tow. The Baltimore with a transport in tow arrived. The Philadelphia went down the river in the morning, but came up in the evening. The Mount Vernon and the Anacostia arrived. The Chesapeake sailed. Steamer Boston with transport in tow, left late in the evening. The most rational supposition indulged in by the quid-nuncs here, is that the Government intends to "re-possess" Harper's Ferry and the Gosport Navy-Yard. Some talk, too, is made of bringing a large war steamer up the Potomac, drawing 22 feet. The Government has no difficulty, so far, in procuring pilots from the North, principally, to navigate their vessels up the river. The Washington Star, of Thursday evening, says: It affords us great pleasure to be able to state that it is understood to-day that Col. Mansfield, U. S. A., the military commandant here, has been this morning, or is about to be, prom
mac and enter Virginia from this point at no distant day. To commence a campaign without due preparation is a folly of which General Scott will not be guilty. The steamer Cambridge has arrived here from Boston, via Fort Monroe. She made the run to Fort Monroe in fifty-six hours, and landed a reinforcement of several Massachusetts companies. The steamer Roanoke arrived last night with the Salem (Mass.) Zouaves and military stores.

Hon. A. R. Boteler. --We copy from the Winchester Virginia the following extract of a letter from this gentleman. He was one of the first to join a volunteer company as a private in the ranks, and march to Harper's Ferry: In reply to the inquiry contained in your last letter, I have no hesitation in answering that I heartily approve of the recent action of our State Convention, and expect to reiterate my approval at the polls. You know with what devotion I have loved the Union, how faithfully I labored with those who struggled to maintain it upon its original constitutional basis of justice and equality, and how reluctant I was to abandon the hope of its reconstruction, But, alas! the coercive policy of this perfidious Administration, and the malignant alacrity with which that policy has been responded to by all parties in the North, has abundantly testified that the Union of my love, the Union which our fathers made for our protection, has been perverted by sectional
Clerical appointment. --Rev. Jos. Bixio, S. J. has been appointed Assistant Pastor of St. Mary's Church in this city. He will also have the pastoral charge of St. Mary's Church, Fairfax Station, and St. John's Church, Warrenton, and of the scattered Catholics on the line of the railroads leading to Alexandria. Rev. Mr. Bixio occupied the position to which he has now been appointed from six to eight years since, but has been more recently connected with Santa Clara College and the Mission of San Jose in California.--He arrived here on Wednesday from Boston, via Harper's Ferry.-- Alexandria Gazette.
ter the passage of the Secession Ordinance, and although the members of the Convention were sworn to secrecy, yet Carlile spent a whole day in Washington, and was, we are told, closeted with Lincoln's Cabinet. That night, when Carlile passed Harper's Ferry the Armory buildings were in flames by the order of Lincoln. The question is, how did Lincoln know of the passage of the Secession Ordinance so as to telegraph to Harper's Ferry to destroy the buildings and arms to prevent them from being caHarper's Ferry to destroy the buildings and arms to prevent them from being captured With what fiendish exultation must Carlile have sit in the cars and witnessed the flames lit up by his treason! How he must have looked like some exaggerated demon, raised from the purging fires of the nether world by infernal incantations! It is reported, with what truth we know not, that Carlile has been forced to fly the country to prevent arrest for treason. Philippi, May 1, 1861.

An available position occupied. Alexandria, May 10. --The heights of Maryland, opposite Harper's Ferry, were taken possession of by the Virginia forces yesterday. There is no news of interest from Washington.
