Things at Fortress Monroe. Our readers have already been apprized of the presence of Henry J. Raymond, editor of the New York Times, at Fortress Monroe.--His letters from thence exhibit little of the strategic knowledge (!) which characterized some of the newspaper articles attributed to him in former days; nevertheless, there are some things in the subjoined (which bears date July 4th,) that will be perused with interest. Raymond, it must be understood, had been on board the Minnesota, wRaymond, it must be understood, had been on board the Minnesota, with Gen.Butler and others, taking a few drinks in memory of the defunct Union: While we were on board the Minnesota, the little Secession propeller which does this duty came up in sight, with a flag of truce from Norfolk. The Secession flag floated at her stern, and the white banner at masthead. She came up within a hundred yards of the Minnesota, one of whose officers put off to her, and soon returned, bringing a request from Mr. Myer Myers, the British Consul at Norfolk, that he might

A Yankee Editor Condemns the Outrages committed by Lincoln troops. In the editorial correspondence of the New York Times, written from Fortress Monroe, Va., on the 4th of July, by Hon, Henry J. Raymond, its editor, a description of the Fort and the surrounding camps is given. Speaking of the village which has been abandoned to the Hessians, he says: It is a very pretty country town, with a fine hotel looking out upon the river, a good military school, three or four churches, &c. On the day after his arrival at the Fortress, Gen. Butler crossed over this bridge with one of the Massachusetts regiments, on a reconnaissance, and this seems to have completed the terror which had previously almost paralyzed the town. The people burned the bridge and fled. I procured a boat, and crossed over to the "deserted village." A stout fellow rowed us across, who said his master had gone to York town, and he was not anxious to have him return. Of the 2,000 or 2,500 inhabitants of th

Gen. Scott's programme — his opposition to the advance on Richmond — his resentment towards that city. The infamous editor of the New York Times--appropriately styled by the Tribune the "little villain"--has become the champion of General Scott. He defends him against the party who clamored for the march to Richmond, led on by General Greeley, and to which the President yielded. In vindication of Gen. Scott, Raymond, of the Times, gives the substance of a conversation at the General's table, in presence of his Aids and a "single guest," (the "little villain" himself, we suppose.) This conversation, he says, took place on Tuesday, before the battle at Stone Bridge. Taken in connection with the impassioned remark of the aged Fuss and Feathers Chieftain before the President, as reported by Richardson, of Illinois, it would appear that he was overruled in the march to Manassas; but on pretty good authority it is stated that he declared, on the forenoon of the 21st, the most perfec
the North has no money and cannot get any. The rebels are under the delusion that the heavy sums owed to the North by the South will be the means of making us bankrupt, and that in less than a year the North will "cave in." There are two regiments of well drilled negroes at Richmond. The bitterness of the feeling at the South against the North is described as terrible, and our informant thought that the Federal prisoners would suffer bad treatment in rebel hands. The stampede. Henry J. Raymond writes from Washington to the New York Times: As soon as it was understood in the crowd of teamsters, fugitive soldiers and miscellaneous hangers-on of the army at Centreville that our columns were retreating, they became very considerably excited, and this feeling arose to panic when they heard the sound of cannon in the rear, as they supposed it to indicate that the enemy was pursuing in force. After I had driven something over a mile from the village on my way to Washington, t

Already a very large sum has been taken out of the State by that very remarkable traitor, and I have no prospect of ever getting retribution, if the balance of the funds is taken away," Judge Ludlow suggested that a citation might issue, and notice could be made by publication, Senator Mason has ten days in which to appear and answer. A New plan of the campaign. Henry J. Raymond, of the New York Times, who is now in Washington and enjoys intimate relations with General Scott and other military men, makes the following suggestion in a letter to his paper: Let a civilian, then, make one suggestion to those who hold in their hands the lives of our patriotic soldiers and the honor of their country's flag. His suggestion is this: The rebel army ought not to be attacked in its present position, for the simple reason that it now occupies, of all others whi
igham made a stirring speech on the settlement of the Trent affair. In a caucus meeting of the members of the Legislature of New York, on the 6th inst., Henry J. Raymond, of the Times, was elected speaker. It would appear from the following that the Peace party is in the ascendant, notwithstanding the Governor of that State y corruption in nigh and low places, be invited to take seats in this Convention. The resolution was advocated by Messrs. Ogden and Stetson, and opposed by Mr. Raymond in a speech of considerable length. After a long debate the resolution was lost, under the call for yeas and noes, by a vote 16 to 62. The caucus then proceeded to nominate a candidate for speaker, when Henry J. Raymond was the successful candidate. The Burnside expedition — its destination. The Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Press, writing under date of the 8th inst., says: Burnside's expedition, which will probably sail within the present week will
ew York Politics--one Union, one Destiny, and no Slavery. The Republicans of New York have commenced their mass meetings in favor of Wadsworth, their nominee for Governor. One was held in that city Wednesday night. The first speaker was Henry J. Raymond, the "little villain" of the Times. He explained that he left this city to attend the Convention under the conviction that Jos. S. worth was the proper that for the position of Governor; but on his way, in conversation with none but lncluded — that twenty-five years after, it would bud and blossom as the ross. In the meantime, it was our duty to use every effort to defeat the Secession ticket of Seymour and his confederates in the State. A vote of thanks was given to Mr. Raymond for his aide speech, which was followed by three rousing cheers. A Revolt at the Confiscation act — what will the emancipation proclamation do? It will be recollected, at the time of the passage of the Confiscation act by the Federal
He counseled the most cordial support of the Union Democrats, and said that he believed that the Syrathes candidates might carry not only the State, but the city of New York, with a triumphant and overwhelming majority. [Applause.] Hon. Henry J. Raymond followed, in a speech of considerable length, reviewing the position of the North at the present crisis, and showing the necessity of sustaining the Republican Union, ticket in the State, and defeating the Seymour Secession ticket, in order to sustain the Government and put down the rebellion. Mr. Raymond cordially endorsed the emancipation proclamation of the President as a military necessity, and said that, so far from claiming us for it, the rebels ought to thank us for giving them a chance to save slavery by resuming their allegiance. The rebels had no more right to demand that we should not use that weapon of welfare than they had to say we should substitute pop-guns for rifled cannon. [Applause and laughter.] As for wh
That distinguished military genius, Henry J. Raymond, of the New York Times, who was amongst the first to announce that the war was to be wound up by the crushing of the rebellion in the brief period of a short negotiable note, has now come to the conclusion that war is not after all an "extempore affair." In his speech at the mass meeting of the Union League in New York, he assured those whom he had helped to delude that "a war of two great people--twenty millions against eight [disparitt sooner or later the rebellion must be crushed — They endeavored, since they could not do this in "twenty minutes" to prepare the people for a long struggle, and imbue them with the endurance and blood thirsty perseverance of the blood hound in following up the people of the South. Whatever may be said of the war, of this all feel satisfied; That if such men as Raymond and others who addressed the League composed the entire, Yankee army, the war would indeed be wound up in "twenty minutes."
ney. Forney, writing about politics from Washington to the Philadelphia Press on the 25th ultimo, says: Hon. Henry J. Raymond, the chairman of the National Union Committee, reached Washington this morning, and has been in consultation all ident, the different members of his Cabinet, and the other friends of the Administration of the Federal Government. Governor Raymond is a statesman of enlarged comprehension and thorough experience. He has not only been educated in the legislative fear to speak on great issues, and, doing so, must be assailed by suspicious and ignorant partisans — such a man as Henry J. Raymond is a treasure which the friends of Union and honorable peace cannot too highly prize. And in this allusion I refer ountry, that I was not surprised to see that article misunderstood on the one hand and misinterpreted on the other. Governor Raymond will be found, I think, on a higher plane and a bolder platform than that which I assumed. Indeed, his articles in
