Items from the Cincinnati Gazette and Commercial of the 11th and 12th.

The following items, taken from the papers above-named, will be found interesting:


Official descent upon the Residences of Secessionists.

The Deputy U. S. Marshal of this city and a posse of assistants, made a descent, night-before last, at Covington, upon the residence of ex-Hon. John W. Stevenson, Chas. A. Withers, late Superintendent of the Kentucky Central Railroad, Mr. Moss, his son-in-law, J. Pence, and Samuel Howard, father-in-law of Major Samuel K. Hays, now in the rebel army, for the purpose of searching them acccording to certain information received that the parties were engaged in treasonable correspondence with the rebels of the South. The only documents found, however, were some relating to the K. G. C., and these were found in the house of Mr. Howard. The parties themselves are well known Secessionists, and it is with but illy concealed spleen that they had to hold their peace in this community, which now stands almost a unit for the Government.


Military movements.

The 27th Ohio regiment, composed of Germans, came down from Camp Dennison yesterday, and crossed the river to Kentucky, taking the cars of the Covington and Lexington Railroad for the interior.

Capt. Kinney's company of artillerists, with its rifled battery, left for Kentucky yesterday afternoon. This is the second battery of the first Ohio that has left for Kentucky. Both companies were in excellent condition — men, horses, guns and equipments generally. They took about sixteen hundred rounds of ammunition.


Andy Johnson, &c.

James R. Challen, Esq., of this city has been appointed Lieut. Colonel of the 69th Ohio, Colonel L. D. Campbell. In a recent tour through Ohio with Gov. Andy Johnson, of Tennessee, Col. Campbell said: ‘"I propose to take a thousand men and escort Gov. Johnson back to his home, and never to give the command about face, until the stars and stripes shall wave in triumph over his house."’ The officers of the 69th speak with enthusiasm of their contemplated march of vengeance through the Cumberland Valley. Men in whom the martial spirit burns with ardor, can, as will be seen by the language of the leaders, find use for it in this regiment. Men are wanted.


Vallandigham's District.

In the third Congressional district, which elected Vallandigham a year ago, the Union ticket received on Tuesday last a majority of 1,000. Even Butler, the stronghold of secession sympathizers, elected a portion of the Union candidates. Over this result Vallandigham is announced to make a jollification speech at Hamilton to-day.


Arrival of sick soldiers from Western Virginia.

The steamers Freestone and Mary Cook arrived here yesterday, from the Kanawha, having on board two hundred and ten sick soldiers, who were immediately transferred to the Marine Hospital, where temporary arrangements were made for their accommodation.


News from Camp Dick Robinson.

We learn from Capt. L. Olds, just from the interior of Kentucky, that the 37th Ohio Regiment. Col. John M. Connell, left Camp Robinson at 10 o'clock yesterday morning, to join Garnett, below Richmond, near Rockcastle river.

Hon. John J. Crittenden and Gen. Leslie Combs are at Camp Dick Robinson. General Combs made speeches to the Ohio and Indiana boys there night before last, exciting a good deal of enthusiasm.


Miscellaneous.

Hon. Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, and a corps of distinguished military gentlemen, visited the U. S. barracks here yesterday, and afterwards paid a visit to the fortifications upon the hills back of the city.

Mrs. Greenhow, a female rebel, who was imprisoned in her own house in Washington, has sent her washing bill to the Secretary, and he is puzzled whether to pay it or not.

Two additional Ohio regiments go immediately into Kentucky, making eleven contributed from this State.

Gentlemen just from Lexington, Ky., state that there are from two to three hundred Secessionists ravaging the country in and about Knox, Clay, and Laurel counties, in that State, and give the opinion that the Union men there should be protected.

The four months service enterprise works like a charm, and Colonel Foley expects to complete his regiment upon that plan in a very short time. A month's pay will be allowed in advance, and recruits will not be sent out of the State.

Green Clay Smith, Esq., member of the Kentucky Legislature, has been authorized to raise recruits for Col. Jas. S. Jackson's First Regiment of Kentucky Cavalry, now encamped at Owensboro.

It has been determined to connect a battery of six guns with each Ohio Brigade organized for the war. In addition to the guns in service, and those on hand, seventy two rifled cannon have been ordered.

Charles H. Sargent, of this city, has received the appointment of Colonel of the 32d Ohio Regiment from Gov. Dennison.
