Lincoln's Generals Quarreling. --The Cairo correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial writes, under date of the 3d: A difficulty has sprung up between General Grant and General Prentiss, which is much to be regretted. The circumstances, I believe, are these; General Prentiss was ordered from here to take command of the expedition. At that time he had not received from Washington his appointment for the war, but held over on his three months appointment, General Grant, before Colonel, received his appointment first, and was ordered to take command. He consequently outranked General Prentiss, and ordered him to the command at Caps Girardeau, General Prentiss refused to obey, and was placed under arrest by order of General Grant, and sent to Cape Girardeau, where he now is. It is said that General Prentiss has sent in his resignation.
Exchange of prisoners. --A correspondent writing to the Memphis Appeal, confirms the statement in regard to the exchange of prisoners between General Pillow and the Federal commander at Cape Girardeau.
