From Washington. Washington, June 17. --Tuesday's Intelligencer says that no official instructions as to the fate of the Savannah's crew have been given, but the impression prevails that they will be hung. The War Department has ordered the rebuilding of the Harper's Ferry bridge. Col. Stone occupies Leesburg. At Fortress Monroe, Sawyer's American rifle cannon has been mounted at the RipRaps, which will reach Sewell's Point. Gen. Scott boasts that the evacuation of Harper's Ferry was in perfect accordance with his plans, and that no Southern movements will in the slightest degree affect his programme. The Government has information that the Southerners have a trap set for them fifteen miles from Alexandria, into which they expect to draw the Federalists. Some scout reports that the Indians are lurking in the neighborhood of the alleged trap. Point Lookout and Fortress Monroe are to be connected by a submarine telegraph. A dozen rifle cannon ha

And now they threaten to take Norfolk, Harper's Ferry and Richmond. Their military leaders propose to "crush out the Southern rebilion." They call us "rebels and trattors," and they are on the march to panish us. They proclaim that Virginia is to be whipped back into the Union, and that the other seceded States, after becoming impovers ished by blockade, are to be subjugated by force of arms.

Protecting the public property. Mr. Lincoln says he makes war on the South to protect the public property. The manner in which he "protects it" is to be seen in his provoking the Carolinians to fire upon what he considered public property. "Fort Sumter," while his fleet lay outside without firing a gun for its "protection." Another example is Harper's Ferry, which he "protected" by ordering it to be set on fire; and another still, the Norfolk Navy-Yard, where he destroyed everything he could lay his hands on, and made every preparation, by mining the whole yard, to scatter millions upon millions of the public property to the four winds of Heaven. Similar preparations for protection have been made in the city of Washington, where the public buildings are all ready for a grand explosion, in case it becomes necessary to "protect" them from the hands of the "rebels."

The Harper's Ferry movement. We have learned some facts in connection with movements at Harper's Ferry which satify us that the operation of the Confederate troops in that direction is controlled by the wisest military councils, and that the imbecile Lieutenant General at Washington will soon find that he has more than his match in the younger and better soldiers who lead the arms of the Southern Republic.
