Jen.-Johnston's report.

--The Sentinel gives the following explanation of the delay in the publication of Gen. Jos E. Johnston's report. It says that the Dispatch "intimates some minister reason" for the delay. No such intimation has appeared in this paper, nor was simple statement of the fact of the delay can be to turned into an intimation of "some minister reason." It says:

‘ The least inquiry would have disarmed any suspicion such as is manifested; but as the intimation referred to has been made, it is proper to say that, during the session of Congress, the publication of bills, committees' reports of the departments, &c., necessarily take precedences of documents not essential to current legislation.--The last session of Congress was and very busy one, and its demands on such printing facilities as the times allow was so great as to compel the postponement of Gen. Johnston's report after all, for only a few weeks. There is nobody to blame for it.
