, they attacked and dispersed a body of Federal troops at Taylorsville. Colonel Poindexter is reported near Hudson, with 1,200 partisans, threatening to capture that place. A dispatch from Shelban, reports Porter, with 2,400 men, encamped near Newark. He had bagged two companies of militia there, after slight resistance, with a large number of horses, guns, and a considerable amount of ammunition. Up to the 8th instant, 22,000 men were enrolled in the State of New York. Important army movements are anticipated at Washington. No one is allowed to pass McClellan's lines. A large number of negroes have been stolen by Pope, near Stenardsville, Va. The New York Commercial states that an important secret expedition, consisting of one steamer' with a picked crew, had left a Federal port, and would soon be heard of. It is announced that the Federal Government has contracted for another iron-clad Monitor, which will cost a million and a quarter of dollars.

It is believed that he intends to carry the greater part of his army to Pope's assistance, leaving below only a force sufficient, with the aid of his gunboats, to keep up the system of plunder which he has inaugurated in Virginia. Berkeley, it seems, is after all, no better base than York river was, and the small Napoleon is no nearer Richmond there than he was at Mechanicsville. A contemporary asks what is to be said now in support of the subterfuge he resorted to when he wished to cover up his disastrous and disgraceful rout before Richmond! We cannot imagine. The facts are simply these: In March he set cut from Washington with an army 120,000 strong to take Richmond. On the Peninsula he was reinforced by 38,000 fresh troops, making 138,000 in all.
