road communication. Of this plan — if plan it be — and of our movements to resist it, or any other attempt that the enemy may make, it need only be said that General Rosecranz is supposed to be maturing ample preparations. Meanwhile the reviving hopes of the Secessionists may be observed in an infallible barometer. Those who are familiar with the Philippi, Laurel Hill and Rich Mountain campaign, will remember what an outburst of guerilla fighting there was through all this section of Western Virginia just before the more serious operations began. Already something of the same kind is beginning to be noticeable again. Every day or two we hear of some of our men being shot at from behind the bushes by the roadside; but yesterday a teamster told me of being fired upon while driving a United States team between here and Weston, and to-day there come stories of a skirmish between a handful of our men and a band of native Secessionists, but a dozen miles from here, on the road to Prunty

ie, of Marion county, was read in the Wheeling Convention on Thursday last. It was in answer to an inquiry as to the propriety of forming a new State in the Western part of Virginia. Mr. Bates say: The formation of a new State out of Western Virginia is an original, independent act of revolution I do not dany the power of revolution. (I do not call it right — for it is never prescribed, it exists in force only, and has and can have no law but the will of the revolutionist.) Any attempt create a new State at this perilous time. At another time, I might be willing to go fully into the question, but now I can say no more. A telegraphic dispatch tells us what the bogus assemblage has done. Wheeling, August 20.--The Western Virginia State Convention adopted to day an ordinance creating a new State to be called Kanawha. The ordinance provides that the matter be referred to the people at an election to be held on the 24th of October for approval or rejection. The adjoini
Don't want to enlist. --We copy the following paragraph from the Pittsburg Dispatch, of the 19th inst.: Both the wheeling papers speak of dilatoriness among the Union men in Western Virginia in enlisting and suggests, as a stimulant to volunteers, that Gov.

tion. There is trouble in the Cabinet, trouble in the War Department. trouble in the Navy Department, trouble among the military chiefs and diseffection among the volunteers, on both sides of the river. The appointment of Gen. McClellan over the heads of so many older officers, has caused an immense deal of heart. burning. McDowells friends are indignant at the treatment which he has experienced. and do not hesitate to speak with the utmost contempt of the brilliant achievements in Western Virginia of the young Commander-in-Chief. Are you aware that Gen. Banks aspired to the post now occupied by McClellan, and that he was warmly pressed upon the Administration by quite a number of his especial political friends and admirers? It seems hardly credible, but nevertheless. I believe it is strictly true. An effort is now making to transfer him to the War Department, and as it has been foreseen that such a promotion would give to New England two members of the Cabinet, it has bee
