Gen. Butler.

B. F. (Bombastes Furioso) Butler is said to have threatened, on hearing of the Bethel defeat, that he would have every one of the rebel batteries before breakfast next morning. We are not advised that he has yet made the attempt. One of those batteries, we should think, would be as much as he could swallow at a time.
