If the army of the Potomac, which has been recruiting and perfecting since the memorable battle of Fredericksburg, and is, therefore, supposed to be in the very best condition, will make a telling demonstration, the command of Major-General Dix will not be found wanting.

Mr. Briggs was desirous of going to General Dix and stating the circumstances in reference to Mr. Hilton, but as he was under Chalker's roof, enjoying his hospitalityhe influence of the Chairman of the Congressional Committee and of the United States District Attorney, prevailed upon General Dix to release Chalker from custody as speedily as possible, on the ground that he was an important witness for the Governprisoner, and consequently his evidence would be worthless. Upon this he was brought up from the on the order of Gen Dix. He has not yet appeared as a witness in any case, and it is understood that the cases which were referred to have been ustom-house to have them held in custody. No sooner is an official arrested at the custom-house than his appear before Gen.

sent him General Lee's modest and guarded message of the first battle, and he communicated that to the public, no doubt believing that a report like that would be construed by the Yankees, so accustomed to boasting and hombast, into the admission of a defeat by General Lee. Stanton helps them to this conclusion by adding himself that it was generally believed in Washington that "Lieut. Gen. Grant is achieving a complete victory" ! The third dispatch of the veracious Secretary of War to Dix says: "Grant's dispatch not yet deciphered, but he is on to Richmond!" Oh, most lying officials and most gullible Yankees! Gold went down from 180 to 169⅜. Lincoln at once published his proclamation, according to custom, calling for thankagiving for the glorious victories and the capture of Richmond, now beyond a doubt! But the monster, in the midst of his boasting, declared that a great deal remained to be done. This must have been one of his jokes, to trifle with the hopes he had s

This effectually blockades the rebel from Our whole force moved at four o'clock A. M. to day and probably are engaging the enemy at this time. Stanton, is a dispatch to Maj Gen Dix, at New York, says: A dispatch has been received from Gen Butler, dated, "in the field near Chester Station, Va, May 12th, 8.30 P. M." It states that he is now pressing the enemy ness Fort Darling, and has before him all the troop from North Carolina.

rary suspension of the New York World and Journal of Commerce has been noticed in Northern advices. It was done by Major General Dix, and the cause was the publication of a bogus proclamation purporting to be issued by Lincoln, of which the followiable news; but it is one of those inexplicable accidents which is liable to happen to any newspaper establishment. Gen Dix immediately suspended both papers and placed military guards in the offices. These were, however, withdrawn in a day orce, shows that, unhappily, it is but too true. As the papers were suppressed and their proprietors arrested by order of Gen Dix, it will be something worth witnessing, to see a warrant issuing to place that gentleman under arrest. A resolutionst "official gazette," as the Yankee papers call it, of Secretary Stanton: Washington, May 23, 1.35 P. M.

The provision market shows symptoms of heavy inflation, in fact, the staples of domestic life have advanced rapidly on old prices, and still their tendency is upward. The Herald. does not conceal the discontent this condition of things is producing.

Gov Seymour is making the General Government trouble. He seems to think that the present moment is his opportunity, and he therefore orders his District Attorney to ex the laws of the State without reference to the orders of the President, and Gen Dix is in hot water. The President will probably give way, as he did in the case of Vallandigham, doubtless being satisfied that the seizure of the World and Journal of Commerce newspapers was a mistake. But the difficulty is to extricate Gen Dix Gen Dix from his dilemma. He is held by the State authorities, and if punished it will be because he obeyed the President. It will be extremely hard, and even cowardly, for the Government to desert him, and it cannot afford to do it. Yet Mr. Lincoln is greatly troubled upon the subject. Everybody knows that if Gen. Grant had succeeded in capturing Richmond Gov. Seymour would not have taken such a defiant stand against the General Government. Like all cowards, he puts on airs when his opponent
