night down the Chesapeake. Letters from Richmond state that General Johnson will be ordered to Harper's Ferry; that Gen. Beauregard will go to Norfolk, and Jeff. Davis to Richmond. The number of troops actually quartered at Harper's Ferry, and within striking distance of the Ferry at a few hours' notice, is not far from fof Capt. McDonald was resumed to-day before Judge Treat, United States District Court. The case was ably argued by District Attorney Jones for the respondent, and Davis and Whittlesey for petitioners. The ground that the United States Attorney took was, that the petition set forth that the petitioner had been arrested by militime of war or of rebellion had the power, and might arrest persons in array against the Federal Government for treason or alleged treason. Messrs. Wright and Davis replied, in support of their proposition, that the United States District Court had power to execute this writ, that it was the greatest protection to freemen in c

A chance. --We have the best authority for saying, remarks the Norfolk Argus, that President Jefferson Davis has accepted a proposition from Ex-Governor Wise to raise a partisan legion, to be formed into a brigade when raised, and to be commissioned as provided by existing law. This, we have reason to know, is vouched by telegraph of May 23d instant, from Montgomery, signed by S. Cooper, A. G. Here now is an opportunity for all partisan leaders and men who may desire to be commissioned or enlisted. We are informed that the Ex-Governor will make arrangements at an early day to raise this legion.
Personal. --Hon. Wm. C. Rives arrived in Richmond on Saturday. Hon. C. C. Memminger, Secretary of State of the Confederate States, arrived yesterday. His Excellency Jefferson Davis, President, is expected this morning — rooms having been engaged for him at the Spotswood Hotel. There was registered at the Spotswood yesterday besides others, the following names: Commodore Muse, N. C. Navy; J. L. Preston, S. C., Wm. M. Ambler, La., O. G. Clay, R. L. Owen, Lynchburg; Wm. T. Sutherlin, Danville; M. M. Long, California. At the Exchange Hotel: Col. Wm. B. Bate, Walker Legion: Ex Gov. Jno. P. Richardson, S. C., G. A. Perdicallis, N. J., Major Rhett, S. C., C. F. Suttle, Alexandria, Va., L. M. McAfee, Gonzales, Texas; A. L. Carter, Va.
It is stated that President Davis, in his recent visit to Pensacola, was surprised and delighted at the admirable condition of the army, and complimented Gen. Bragg and his staff in the highest terms for the energy, tact and vigor which they have displayed in organizing and disciplining the large force concentrated at that point. A vessel from Europe, freighted with rifled cannon and other munitions of war for the Confederate States arrived at Savannah on the 20th inst. The first privateer fitted out in the South--the Calhoun, at New Orleans — is commanded by a Yankee, from Portland, Maine. Rev. J. H. Stockton is hard at work organizing a third volunteer company in Columbia county, Ga. The Charleston Mercury says the rise crop is everywhere fine, so far as heard from.
city, and while here he made known a very important fact. He said that early in the history of the Lincoln Administration General Scott addressed a letter to Abraham Lincoln, stating that he would never fight against Virginia and the South, and recommending a conciliatory policy. W. H. Seward replied, assuring the old General that Mr. Lincoln would coerce, even though it might lead to securing another Commander-in-Chief of the U. S. forces. General Scott finally yielded to Black Republican pressure, though the Administration doubt as to his being heart and soul with them, and hence are in favor of substituting a younger and more energetic man. I believe the above information is reliable, and therefore place it at your disposal. General Scott has not, and cannot have, that zeal and enthusiasm in destroying his mother, that Gen. Lee and President Davis have in defending her.-- He is led on by the $17,000 per annum; they, by the purest motives that ever fired the heart of humanity.
Ilwaine, of Amelia, with other ministers, are expected to participate in the ceremony. When Dr. Pryor came here several years ago, the congregation was small. But under his ministry there have been numerous accessions to the church, until at length a new building became necessary for their accommodation. The church edifice is very handsome, and will compare favorably with others that have been recently erected in this city. A great deal of anxiety has been manifested here to see President Davis, and large numbers of persons have collected at the depot, awaiting the arrival of each train from the South. The news of the occupation of Alexandria by the Lincoln troops, has produced a profound sensation in this city; and the patriotism displayed by Captain Jackson in defence of his flag is the subject of universal commendation. The invaders of our soil will meet with many such heroes as Jackson to obstruct their march and repel their intrusions. The Allstadt Greys, Capta
