Gen. Builer

--At the last accounts Mr. Lincoln was in excellent health. "He is cheerful, " says a letter from lady to the editor of the N. O. D "and cherishes the hops of a ful settlement of our difficulties as early as July. He is contemplating a visit to Boston."

We learn from New Orleans that it was understood that Bottler intended to leave for the East. He was sorely perplexed. The labors of his position were wearing him out. He expected to be called as a deliverer by multitudes of "loyal" men. He expected to freight lunumerable ships with cotion, &c., for Yankee and European consumption. He expected a cordial and o able reception. he thought the presence of his agony would lift a burden from the shoulders of an oppressed people eager to live under the stars and stripes, and only walting for the removal of the oppression of a wicked, but small, class of men, who, he supposed, precipitated our people into this war.

In all these expectations he has been disappointed. No cotion, no welcome, "no nothing, " is what he gets. Men who saw him on his arrival and have seen him later say that he is heggard — exhibits all the facial signs of anxiety and dissatistion; and it is this which is making him dissatisfaction. The suppressed wrath of the people, he conscious that the occupation the city has not accomplished anything sweltering weather and fear that destroy his army of occupation the place one of terror and punishment. The Nemesis, yellow fever, is dogging heels and heart--Mobiles Tribunes.
