month. They have been storming the Government mess-room, which is especially obnoxious to them, because they say they prefer to draw their rations "crude," and cook for themselves. One of them, said to be a Baltimore man, has "struck" after a more downright style, for he has killed a teamster at the mess-room and escaped. So you see General McClellan's ways are not all ways of pleasantness, nor are all the paths of glory peace. Apprehensions growing out of the near neighborhood of Beauregard and Johnston play their part in the general flurry. A Mr. Cowling, living near Claremont, only five miles from Alexandria, came into town yesterday with a wagon load of furniture, and immediately returned for another, and his wife. He declares that the Confederates have got to Claremont and ordered him to quit. Mr. Cowling has many anxious friends in Washington to-day. The Star very consequentially denies the rumor current this afternoon, and indeed all day, that Gen. Rosencranz ha
whole or in part to citizens or inhabitants of the seceded States, found at sea, or in any of the United States ports, will be forfeited. Books for subscriptions to the loan will be opened in all the cities and towns in the United States. A letter from Martinsburg reports that the Confederate cavalry are constantly killing the Federal pickets. The correspondent of the N. Y. Tribune, says that many of the disasters to our various regiments was in consequence of the mutiny among the three months volunteers who refused to go to Tortugas. The Herald's correspondent says that numberless incidents go to show that the Confederates are on the eye of attacking the Federal ones. The Baltimore Secessionists have received intelligence that the Confederates are gradually working their way towards Washington. Gen. Scott doubts this, but Gen. McClellan, who pretends to know Gen. Beauregard's mode of combination, anticipates an early attack from some point on the Potomac.
Chip of the Old Block. --A son of General Beauregard, who has just attained his majority, arrived in Virginia a few days since for the purpose of joining the Confederate States army.
my and flotilla (consistent with treaty stipulations) will be employed upon Canadian waters. This contemplated measure appears to afford satisfaction there. Several vessels of war are preparing to leave England for the American coast. German anxiety respecting the war issue. A Berlin correspondent, writing on the 31st of July, states that the anxiety in the Prussian capital respecting the war news from America was intense. The probable movements of Gen. Scott and the tactics of Beauregard were canvassed in every place of general resort, and the geography of the United States has been studied in all well-informed circles most attentively. The people sympathized with the Union cause. Hopes of the Confederate Commissioners in Europe. The Paris correspondent of the Independence Bulge states that the Jeff. Davis commissioners in Europe had still hopes of the ultimate recognition of the independence of the Southern States by England and France. He adds that these gent

The New York Journal of Commerce publishes the following extract of a letter to a merchant of that city, dated London, August 2d: "Osborne (Donegal, No. 101) is ordered to the North American station. We are preparing enormous reinforcements to protect British commerce against a blockade which is both illegal and inefficient. "There are only ten weeks consumption of cotton in the country. "Even if you should whip Gen. Beauregard, he has only to retire and await events. "There is no possibility of getting a loan here, so Mr. Chase must depend on what he can get at home.". Insubordination in the "Grand army." A letter from Washington, (August 16,) published in the Baltimore Exchange, says: There is nothing upon which the military authorities here spend so much care as the suppression of a knowledge of the true condition of the army on the other side of the Potomac. General McClellan's co
Gen. Butler. It is again announced that the old hero at Fortress Monroe, "Bombastes Furioso," is to leave that post, and, as it is expressed, for one of "more active service." This is refreshing intelligence. We would like to know why Butler does not find the service "active" enough in the Peninsula? If he has been pining for employment, why did he not accompany Pierce to Bethel? Why has he not fulfilled his various threats of taking Richmond and Norfolk? What has he done at Fortress Monroe except capture contrabands, steal chickens, and defile and burn private property? The miserable pretender! In what other military service on the face of the earth could such an egregious humbug be tolerated? We learn that he was hugely delighted at the result of the great battle of Manassas, which proved that other people can lose a fight as well as Beauregard, and that Scott and he will go down to posterity in the same category,
ally at Buena Vista, where the flower of the Mexican Army, under Santa Anna, was smashed to powder, and thoroughly demoralized. After that battle, the Mexicans, cowed, dispirited, deprived of their choicest troops and military supplies, gave way readily before the splendid column of Scott, composed in great part of Old Zack's regulars, whom, with his usual magnanimity, the Lieutenant-General had despoiled Taylor of on the eve of the battle of Buena Vista, and commanded by such officers as Beauregard, Lee, Johnson and others. Nevertheless, old "Fuss and Feathers" managed to scramble off with a vast share of glory from the Mexican war, and became Lieutenant-General, which never consoled him, however, for the election of Taylor to the Presidency, or for his own defeat when running for that office! Of late years, it has been fashionable with the Lieutenant-General, whom his devotees describe as the great General of the age, compared with whom Napoleon and Washington were small potat
