Spicy correspondence. We had heard that a sharp correspondence had passed between our gallant General Magruder and General Picayune Butler, shortly after the fight at Bethel. The New Orleans Delta received here yesterday, contained the whole of it as furnished by its correspondent. We copy the letters this morning. The miserable pretence of Butler, that he is endeavoring to protect private property, has not even deceived the Northern press. A correspondent of the New York Tribune denounces the outrages committed by his troops on private property as a disgrace to them and to the age. What barbarities indeed must they not have perpetrated, when the brutal and fiendish New York Tribune complains of them! We conversed a day or two since with J. Barron Hope, of Hampton, who detailed some of the enormities committed in that town by the vandals of Fortress Monroe.

s that recent developments indicate that General Scott intends to make no forward movements into Virginia this summer. The correspondent of the Journal of Commerce states that it was generally believed in Washington City on Saturday, that the Federal forces would advance on the Confederate army sometime during the first week in July, and would have moved before that time but General Scott desired the military control of Baltimore, thereby leaving no enemy in the rear. The same correspondent states that five regiments reached Washington on Friday night, which makes 51,000 at the Federal Capital — that a large force was advancing to the support of the Southerners at Harper's Ferry — that General Johnston is at Winchester with 15,000 troops — that Gen. Magruder has a force of only 1,000, and that the Federal troops are within twenty miles of him awaiting reinforcements.
