Another letter from Mr. Russell. By the Hammonia at New York we have another of Mr. Russell's letters to the London Times. We make the following brief extracts. Prince Napoleon's visit to Manassas. Gen. Beauregard did not make a very good impression on the Prince, it is said, although his French is natural to him as a New Orleans creole. It is said by the people who can see a long way into millstones that the Prince will certainly propose an arbitration, and that his visit is made with the object of securing for France the position which would certainly be given to the power that might render an agreement possible. Mr. Seward not only exhibited an inclination to let the Prince go if he liked — he seemed to think it would not be possible to find any sound reasons to object to the expedition. Now, it strikes an outsider that if the United States Government was angry with Great Britain for placing the Confederate States army on the footing of belligerents, and if it

A jolly old fellow, who had been courting Bacchus, met us on the street, yesterday, and swore that he had never done us any harm, then asseverated most solemnly that he had a son under Johnston and Beauregard, and finally began to talk about the Republicans, Lincoln, and Scott, and loudly hurrahs for the last-named. In New York, such a man, hurrahing for Jeff. Davis, would have been arrested. Here, we know the man is merely trying to create a sensation, and has no sympathizers, and we are not afraid to let him shout his harmless hurrahs as loudly as he pleases.
bolition,) of Wednesday evening last: The Situation. Daily and nightly reconnaissances over the river show that Beauregard's array, or at least the advanced portion of it, is constantly shifting most of its positions. Thus, on the night befosburg turnpike had also been considerably drawn in. Nevertheless, the impression prevails in military circles here that Beauregard is now massing most of his troops between Fairfax Court-House and Leesburg. That those moved a few days since from Manbeen able to scrape together in the way of fighting material, not absolutely required elsewhere, has been hurried on to Beauregard, and that the latter's army has been thus greatly increased. His purpose is now, apparently, to tempt or to provoke Ge of the enemy within a radius of twenty miles of Manassas Junction, but our troops will wait a long time if they expect Beauregard to attack them in their entrenchments. Jeff. Davis is not dead, he says, as we shall be apt to find out. There are por
the astonishment of the old world, though here the matter is generally viewed with indifference. We doubt that last assertion. Another correspondent of the Sun, after describing a false alarm at Washington on Wednesday, occasioned by target firing near Alexandria, says: There is no special military movement in the city, and the probabilities are that any attack in front of the city will be regarded as a feint to cover an attempt of the Confederates to cross the river in force above or below the city. The general sentiment in military circles is that the condition of Gen. Beauregard's command is such as to necessitate him to take the initiative in hostile movements. But the doubt and uncertainty that shrouds everything in the military way must force home to the most heedless mind the thought of how little of the issues of battles depends upon mere superiority of numbers, and how much upon skillful generalship, backed by a disciplined and courageous soldiery.
