that he is availing himself of his favorite weapon, the spade, and that he will not make a forward movement until "pushed to the wall" by Northern clamor and impatience. Come when he may, he will find a hard road to travel, and every day that he delays will increase the difficulties of his undertaking. The river fleet is said to be quietly lying off City Point, perhaps awaiting the opportunity to co-operate with the grand army when an advance is determined upon. Their repulse on Thursday last, and the subsequent capture of a portion of the Monitor's crew, may came considerable delay in river operations — such, we hope, as will give us ample time to prepare for our defence. The dispatches from Corinth report heavy skirmishing along our front lines, but without any general result. It is needless to speculate as to the probabilities of an early fight, so long as the present cautions policy is pursued by Halleck of holding his army within easy range of his gunboat flotilla.
The police of the War. --From an article in a recent number of the New York Herald we take the following: By precipitating battles at the two places named, (Corinth and Richmond,) we risk, in case of a disaster, the indefinite protraction of the war. By enclosing the Confederates within a network from which they cannot ercape, and starving them into submission, we gain two objects which the country would be gratified to accomplish — that of sparing the further effusion of blood, and capturing and punishing the rebel leaders. This line of policy cannot be entrusted into better hands than those of Generals McClellan and Halleck. If the Government consults the interests and feelings of the country, it will support them in pursaui it.
ead shot off.--We also had four slightly injured. The Federal loss is known to be at least twenty five. The engagement took place at Plumb Point, and lasted an hour and a half, when our boats returned to the fort. The impregnability of our cotton-clad fleet is considered now to be fully demonstrated — the enemy's shot penetrating into the cotton only a few inches, and none passing through. Therefore there is now no danger of the enemy reaching Memphis via Fort Pillow. From Gen. Halleck's army. Cairo, May 14. --Gen. Mitchell's division has formed a junction with Gen. Pope, and now forms the extreme left of our line. On Tuesday, Gen. Pope moved forward his column to retake possession of Farmington, which was lost in the skirmish on Friday. The result of the expedition has not transspired up to the time the steamer left Pittsburg. As the steamer Gladiator, with the Fourth Minnesota Regiment aboard, was passing Paris Landing, on the Tennessee river, o
Fremont and Halleck. --We take the following from a recent letter of Russell to the London Times: As this war proceeds it involves a diversity of ideas and principles in the great "band" which is fighting for the Union. The South is tolerably homegeneins; the North is actuated by motives as diverse and various as those which actuated the leaders of the Holy Alliance. But there was no difference between the Czer and Pressian King as wide as that which separates Halieck from Fremont. The latter is, indeed, favored above all men, because he is an incarnation of faith to millions--"the substance of things hoped for-- evidence of things not seen"--so he is fated and besworded and berhymed, because he represents an undeveloped idea. When he was removed from his command the officers of one of his regiments assembied and voted that he was a good General and ought not tobe removed. To Americans, save those in the regular army, that proceeding does not appear remarkable. Just
intervention rumous. Breadstuffs ciosed dull, and pricess carely maintained. Provisions heavy. Consols closed at 93¾a93a American secarifica daul and unchanged. Free Comments upon the conduct of the War — M' Clellan and Halleck — the battle of Shiloh. The New York correspondent of the London Herald speaks his mind very freely about two of the leading Federal Generals: What I said long ago about the utter incompetency of McClelian is rapidly forcing itself into of 250,000 he should have permitted 60,000 to leave the Potomac, and 20,000 to be transferred to the Mississippi, there to fight under Beauregard, and nearly destroy the army of Gen. Grant. These men are slave owner Generals. So is blundering Halleck at the West. So, it seems, is Buell, and aprecious hopsful lot of them. These men play into the hands of the Confederates. They refuse are with the Conrederates; and while this lasts we shall gain no secure victories — An able commander would
