ects the fort with the village of Hampton, is to be cut through, so as to allow the tide to have a natural channel-way. This will add materially to the natural defences of the place. The following items are from the Washington Chronicle, of Sunday. Thirteen members of the Rhode Island Regiment were sent home on Friday night, in command of Major Slocum. This is done as a punishment for intoxication and disorderly conduct. James Sheeby was arrested last evening by several United States soldiers for preaching secession, on the Avenue, and endeavoring to inflame the minds of the military against the Government. He was taken to the Central guard house where he awaits orders from the military authorities. A telegraphic dispatch from New York, May 11th, says: Daniel E.

The men will be equipped as regulars by the city of New York, and will take with them twelve steel rifled cannon, besides a battery of living artillery. Sickles is now acting as Brigadier General, and has his quarters at the City Hall. The Montgomery Advertiser gives the following cheering news from Alabama: About one hundred and thirty-five companies have offered their services to the Governor of this State since he issued his first proclamation, calling for three thousand men. In each company there is an average of one hundred men, which, in the aggregate, will amount to about 13,000. Alabamans are certainly manifesting something of the Spartan spirit in their readiness to defend their country. The Memphis Argus, of the 10th inst., says: Soldiers who arrived from Rando

. A seizure of the Maryland Heights is absolutely necessary before the place can be taken; and with a thousand foot soldiers, this point might be held against two times number. Situated at the mouth of a valley that extends to Pennsylvania, and being the only pass through the Northern portion of the Blue Ridge range of mountains, its military value is easily comprehended. At this point, too, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad crosses over into Virginia, and hence if the connection with the Ohio river is desirable the bridge over the Potomac, which cost an immense sum, should be in the possession of the Federal troops. Last night about one thousand hogs and fifteen horses were seized while passing over the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad through this place. This course, the authorities here have been compelled to adopt as retaliatory measures, to the action of the Federal troops at the Relay House. An attack upon this place is confidently expected to occur within a few days.

The Southern forces in the vicinity of Harper's Ferry were said to be daily augmenting. The object of the Virginians in burning the underwood away on the Maryland side was to obtain a full view of any hostile effort, and to keep the slope unobstructed. The reported laying of trains for the destruction of the bridge joining Maryland and Virginia, across the Potomac, is not credited, as the bridge could easily be destroyed by fire before any hostile force could approach by ordi

n. It has been erroneously asserted that the centrifugal gun belongs to the city of Baltimore. This is not so. The gun belongs to the inventor, and if there existed any intention to carry the gun out of the city it was not known to the city authorities. A letter from Fortress Monroe, which we copy, contains some information which will interest our readers: The steam-tug Yankee, of two guns, was sent to reconnoitre near the mouth of the James river, and was fired at from Cummings' Point, where the secessionists have a heavy battery planted. The shell passed over the steamer, and she immediately sought shelter under the guns of the Cumberland. This Cummings' Point Battery is on the James river side, southwest from the fort, and at a distance of only five miles. The tents of the secession forces now line the whole bank of the river, and can be distinctly seen from the ramparts of Fort Monroe. They have 68 pounder guns in their battery, and appear to be constantly
