Washington Items.

Washington,May 21.--Surgeon Finley will be appointed Surgeon General of the army, in place of Surgeon Lawson, deceased.

It is a sufficient denial of the reports as to Lieut. Gen. Scott's infirm health, to say that he is engaged in the discharge of his official duties not only throughout the day, but till a late hour every night.

Physicians Lincoln, Dove, Stirrow, Lines, Young, Lank and Waters, have been commissioned as acting assistant surgeons to attend to the troops in Washington and the vicinity, in conjunction with those of the army.

The President, and Secretaries Seward. Chase and Cameron, and other distinguished persons, attended the funeral obsequies of Col. Vosburgh to-day.
