The case of Hamilton E. Towle, against the Great Eastern, came up before Judge Betts to-day. Mr. Towle claims $100,000 salvage for saving the vessel from shipwreck — not that he wants the money, he says, but that his claims of saving the big ship from destruction may be recognized by the owners as well as by the public. The consignees, Messrs Howland & Aspinwall, have given sureties for the payment of the amount that may be recovered by Mr. Towle. Jeff. Davis's colored coachman, Wm. A. Jackson, is announced to deliver an address this evening, in the Zion Baptist church, in Sullivan street. The coachman is quite a lion in his way, and is much sought after.

The remnant saved from the battle at Front Royal had retreated upon the road which connects Strasburg with Front Royal, and the enemy were known to be in close pursuit. Their movement, too, seemed evidently intended to cut off our connection with Winchester, and we saw, very naturally, before us the respect of an enemy (Ewell) in our front, while Jackson, whom we had known to be behind us near Harrisonburg, seemed more than probable intending to push upon us in our rear, placing us between two fires, each doubtless larger than the little command which remained to General Banks after the withdrawal of so large a portion of it to reinforce other less exposed divisions of the army. We soon learned that the forces of Ewell were on the road upon which we were retreating, and in front of us. But we moved on, and had proceeded three miles bey

Volunteers at the North. --The soil of Lincoln upon the Federal States to save the U. S. capital from "Stonewall" Jackson, created much excitement in New York. The N. Y. Seventh, the same regiment that visited Richmond, turned out 800 strong and were sent to Washington. In Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Rhode Island a large number of troops enlisted to defend the "National" capital. It may be that "Stonewall" wont leave them a capital to defend.
