Guns mounted on the redoubt on Mason's hill would sweep all the roads and approaches to Munson's hill, and could do admirable execution upovery direction, bringing to light houses that have been hidden from our sight by the intervening forests. It is evident that hot work is expected here, and that McClellan is using every exertion to perfect his defences before the blow is struck. I have said this line of hills is useful for making a defence; but as a base for offe
elligence of a battle of some consequence may be received very soon. General Fremont's proclamation caused at first some excitement among the members of the Cabinet, but has since been fully endorsed by them. It is expected that the document may have some effect upon the actions of Garibaldi relative to the present contest.

introducing Coffee into the case, and stealing negroes, along with pigs, chickens, grain, live stock, and household and kitchen furniture.--The righteous act of stealing a negro will be made to cover a multitude of sins and felonies contemplated in their new programme. They are committing acts of tyranny now in their own States which shock modern civilization and throw the enormities of Bomba into the shade. These outrages and whatever acts of absolutism and tyranny their tippling hero, McClellan, commissions on men and women in his drunken fits, must be excused to the piety of the world on the hypocritical but sufficient plea that the war they are engaged in is against slavery, and that the victims of these outrages are doubly deserving of their doom as traitors to the Union and as aiders and abettors of the damnable institution.
