and the command of the channel of the river gives us possession of that splendid and populous region of country. The disaster at Lexington decides the fortunes of Fremont. That truculent traitor and brutal upstart must now share the fate of Scott. The North will demand a victim, and Fremont will be the unlucky beast given to the sacrifice. He is really not responsible for the calamity; but he has managed to offend the Blairs, the greatest liars of the age and continent, and they will "lie" him into disgrace and ruin. He would not support Lincoln for the Presidency, but went off to France. Lincoln remembers and will punish. The fate of Fremont will be even worse than that of Scott.

A few days ago he heard of a lady who lived near the lines, and who had left many of her things behind her, which she wished to recover. A pass from General Scott was necessary to enter Virginia. This she procured, also for a man to accompany her as a protector. Carver obtained permission to go with the lady, and, as soon as clear of the Federal pickets, ran into our lines, and was brought to headquassance in person. He is popular with the soldiers — even with those who are opposed to the war.--It is believed that there are no general works on Munson's Hill, and that the object of retaining it is to draw the Grand Army into an ambuscade. Gen. Scott and General Mansfield were blamed severely for not fortifying Munson's Hill, and retaining it, and some suppose that Mansfield was censured for it. Russell (London Times) has gone West. It is thought that Gen. Fremont will be immediately super
