Gen. Mcclellan as A Wit.--The Washington Star, speaking of Gen. McClellan's interview with the “press brigade,” last week, says:--

Gen. McClellan is not fluent of speech apparently, and doubtless doesn't care to be. That there is some little quiet fun in his composition, was apparent at the interview; and on the suggestion being made that the pictorial papers should be severely talked to for giving representations of our military works and operations, he seemed to think that they could be safely left alone, as quite as likely to confound as to instruct the enemy.--N. Y. Commercial Advertiser, Aug. 7.
