iday, June 13, says:
Gen. Burnside Was in town yesterday returning to Fort Monroe, by the afternoon boat.
His reports from the Peninsula, where he spent several hours with Gen, McClellan, are favorable, He sees no reason why, with good weather, our army should not be in Richmond within a very few days.
He does not think that the rebels are strengthened by their-forced levies, but believes that undisciplined members endanger an army which they apparently reinforce, as was the case at Newbern, when the few North Carolina militia threw the whole rebel forces into a panic.
Gen Burnside sees some signs of loyalty in the old North State, but is not so sanguine of its early return to the Union, voluntarily as are some of the newspapers correspondents.
Churches seized for hospitals.
Four of the churches in Washington — Trinity the Rev. Dr. Styles, Rector; Epiphany, Dr. Hale; Ascension, Dr. Style, Rector; Epiphany, Dr. Hale; As pension, Dr. Pinkney, all Episcopal, and on
