We have routed the rebel armies from Missouri and Kentucky, and Tennessee, and partly from Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana, we have removed for a thousand miles, down to the Gulf, the rebel obstructions from the Mississippi river; we have recovered New Orleans, Norfolk, Newbern, Fort Macon, Beaufort, N. C., Beaufort, S. C., and Port Royal, Fort Pulaski, and several seaboard places in Georgia, and several rebel strongholds in Florida, including Pensacola. We have driven the great rebel army of Virginia from its offensive position in sight of Washington back to the defence of Richmond; but there, in measuring our strength with that rebel army, we find it twice in numbers the army of Gen. McClellan, and apparently confident of its power to destroy him, and to turn the tide of

onally, who report that the authorities in Richmond have taken possession of almost every house for hospital purposes, and that great fear is manifested of an epidemic, so foul is the atmosphere throughout the entire city. A few days since Colonel Holmes, of the 30th Virginia regiment, was captured a short distance beyond Fredericksburg, and was sent up to Washington yesterday. This regiment was raised in the vicinity of Fredericksburg, the Colonel having resided for many years in Stafford county. Last week he came up near our pickets and sent some letters in by a contraband, who, in inquiring after the Colonel's friends, aroused suspicion, which led to the capture of the rebel officer. Yesterday a large bark came to Aquia Creek and anchored of the landing in the channel, where she awaits such refugees as can be induced to go to Hayti. The vessel is fitted out by James Redpath, and is apparently well adapted to her new business. The contrabands, however, are not delighte

ebel raids and guerrillas in other quarters. Such shallow devices as those in Tennessee, for instance, should not divert the Government from the grand and crowning achievement of an over whelming army in Virginia in the shortest possible time. We have expended six hundred millions of dollars, a whole year of active war by land and sea, and have lost from the casualties of war many thousand soldiers in fighting this rebellion around a great circle.

ation and protect our flanks — leaving about 100,000 to be disposed of. A very large percentage of sick were then to be subtracted. It is not very extravagant to say that wounds and deaths at Yorktown cost us 1,000 men; Williamsburg, 8,000; West Point, 250; Hanover Court-House, 500; Fair Oaks, so say official bulletins, 5,700. I wish I could believe that were all. Skirmishes and affairs before Richmond, 1,000 at least; Mechanicville, 300; Gaines's Mill, 7,500; Savage's Station, 1,000; White Oak Swamp and Turkey Creek — oh, how many! Where are the stragglers? To be sure, the enemy have lost full as many; but they could afford it. Without attempting to estimate the average number of sick. I will give one exceptional face which may cause you to shudder. When General Casey's division landed at Fortress Monroe it numbered 13,000 men, when his division was routed at Seven Pines it numbered less than 6,000 --all the rest were dead and in the hospital. But no other division suffer

Last week he came up near our pickets and sent some letters in by a contraband, who, in inquiring after the Colonel's friends, aroused suspicion, which led to the capture of the rebel officer. Yesterday a large bark came to Aquia Creek and anchored of the landing in the channel, where she awaits such refugees as can be induced to go to Hayti. The vessel is fitted out by James Redpath, and is apparently well adapted to her new business. The contrabands, however, are not delighted overmuch with their strange visitor, and nothing will cause them to skedaddle from the wharf sooner than an intimation that they are wanted on board the mysterious black craft swinging at anchor. Of the scores of negroes round about Aquia, bu

If any instance has occurred, it was, with one exception, not only without authority, but against orders, and has not yet come to my knowledge. Citizens, traders, refugees, &c., were protected in the occupancy of their own wagons, and allowed to move with the Government trains in order, nothing further. The rear guard of infantry and artillery halted in the rear of Martinsburg from two o'clock till evening. When at considerable distance of our march we overtook a small party on foot. --My attention was attracted by a little girl, about eight years of age, who was toddling over the stones by the wayside, and I asked "How far she had travelled?" "From Winchester," they said. We were then about twenty-seven miles on our march. I requested the cannoneers to give her a lift, and the gallant men who had hung upon the rear of the column for its defence the greater

impossible that she belonged to the class referred to in the resolution, and that her little limbs had been strengthened by some vague dream of liberty to be lost or won on that hurried night march. I have the honor to be, with much respect, your obedient servant, N. P. Banks, Major-General Commanding. The Correspondence about the White House--its Accommodations — Why it was guarded, and not used as a Hospital. The correspondence on the subject of the White House, on the Pamunkey river, just laid before the House of Representatives, is interesting. General McClellan, in his telegram in reply to Secretary Stanton, (which stated that urgent complaints were made that the rebel General Lee's property was protected, and the necessities of our suffering soldiers demanded its use, and that the soldiers had to buy water where they were.) says that the Secretary's dispatch struck him with pain and astonishment, and adds that the story about the soldiers purchasing water is wit

such is their rather extensive programme for the summer campaign. The means at their command for its execution are rather inadequate; but they count upon the active assistance of both England and France. Both of these nations, they think, will recognize their independence, and their vessels, breaking the blockade, take their cotton and sugar away and bring them arms and ammunition in return. They have now in arms 500,000 troops, distributed as follows: Richmond200,000 Central Virginia40,000 Charleston30,000 Savannah25,000 Mobile part of these troops are from Beauregard's late army.50,000 Vicksburg part of these troops are from Beauregard's late army.75,000 West of the Mississippi river40,000 Knoxville20,000 Interior of Georgia and Alabama20,000 Total500,000 So far as Gen.

ety of the citizens, whose hopes seem all bound up in the success of Jeff. Davis & Co. Nearly all the sick have been removed to Washington during the last few days, and the hospitals here are now almost empty. A few of the most violent cases remain; but these have as good care as they would receive at Washington, and are certainly in a much more pleasant locality. Among those remaining is Captain Caldwell, 2d regiment sharpshooters, whose life is despaired of. Since the occupation of Falmouth the Captain has been serving as Provost Marshal of the place, and by his superior qualities has won the esteem of every officer. The general health of the troops continues excellent, and the great quantities of blackberries afford a most agreeable remedy for the many little ills resulting from an impure state of the system, for the cleansing of which no better specific can be prescribed; while at the same time, they attract the men from the vile wares of the sutlers, whose pies, cakes, &c.
