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 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,

Paxton, of Lexington, Va., has been promoted to the post of Aide-de-camp to Gen. Jackson. The ship Helene arrived at Baltimore on Friday, from Bremen, with 181 emigrant passengers. Dr. Wm. B. Stokes died in Baltimore on Thursday
mpton is nightly visited by the Confederates. Lieut. Crosby's recent expedition to Accomac and Northampton counties has nearly broken up the contraband trade between the Eastern and Western shores of the Chesapeake. In some places visited by him there was a strong and outspoken Union sentiment. Five hundred unprepared letters from the Federal prisoners at Richmond to their Northern friends, left on the Baltimore boat by the released surgeons, were to-day generously forwarded by Gen. Butler. The new and formidable works on the Rip-Raps and on the land side of the fortress are rapidly progressing. Large quantities of commissary and ordnance stores continue to arrive, and the gale during the last few hours has brought up the Roads a number of transports bound to Washington. Washington items.

th regard to the death of Gen. McCulloch and the loss of the Confederate forces, it is a mere assertion of the correspondent of the Northern Associated Press] From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, August 15. --The steamers Adelaide and George Peabody have arrived at Old Point, and will leave shortly on an important expedition. The rumored presence of a privateer in the Chesapeake was one of our vessels, belonging to Lieut. Crosby's expedition to the Eastern Shore. General Butler is so well satisfied with the results of La Mountain's ærial reconnaissances that the latter has gone North for a balloon of much larger size. The report that the Confederates beyond Fox Hill connected a wire with the telegraph line from Old Point to Newport News, and thus obtained our dispatches, is entirely without foundation. The line is now being put in working order, communication having been interrupted since our evacuation of Hampton. Considerable dissatisfaction has la
