--It is stated that twenty of the rank and file of the army left Washington on Thursday for Montgomery, for the purpose of enlisting in the Southern army.
These desertions make an aggregate of two hundred and eighty army recruits for the Southern Government from the Federal Capital since they have been stationed there by Gen. Scott.
