Flag of truce. A flag of truce left this city yesterday, conveying a lot of paroled Yankee prisoners to General McCellan's headquarters. Among the parties thus sent off were the members, some dozen in number, of the Pittsburg Sanitary Commission, taken at Savage a Station, and all of the Federal Surgeons save these deputed by themselves to stay in attendance on their wounded.
Shoddy in the Yankee capital. --A Washington correspondent of the New York Express writes: Since the breaking out of the war quite a number of our citizens have enriched themselves, chiefly by legitimate business operations. G. C. McGuire & Co., the auctioneers, have cleared $300,000 by a contract for mattresses and iron bedsteads; Savage & Co., hardware dealers, at least $150,000; Sibley & Gray, stove dealers, as much more; C. L. Woodward, in the same business, $100,000. These firms occupy contiguous places of business between 10th and 11th streets. John E. Evans & Co., hardware, $200,000; J. & E. Owen, merchant tailors, $76,000; Mr. Lutze, saddler, $60,000; Mr. Rapler, blacksmith, $100,000, for shoeing Government horses. A poor wheelwright, for putting together wheelbarrows, bought at the North, $30,000--they were transported hither in pieces to save freight. Hudson, Taylor, and Philip & Solomon, stationers, $50,000 apiece. Mr. Taylor, has invested part of his propert

ng from Newbern, N. C., on the 1st inst., gives an account of the recent reconnaissance by General Pickett to that point. He says: Last night (Sunday) a little after midnight, the pickets were driven in at Bacheldore Creak and at Deep Gulley on the West, and at Brier's Creek on the South. The alarm was soon communicated to Newbern from the front, which is some 10 or 12 miles out, and the long roll sounded at 5 A. M., this morning. Some six companies of the 12th New York Cavalry, Col Savage, were stationed near Deep Galely. Col Classon, with the 132d N York infantry, was stationed at Bacheldore Creek, some eight miles out from Newbern on the railroad. An Iron car called the Monitor, mounting two guns, also assisted the defence. Lieut Col Fellows, of the 17th Mass, with a detachment of 115 men, and a detachment of the 89th New York, accompanied by a section of Capt. Churchill's battery 3d New York, went out on the Washington road, between 5 and 6 this morning. Another sectio
From Northern Virginia. Hamilton's Crossing, April 13. --A force of Yankees, estimated at one hundred, came to Falmouth to-day, capturing two wagons. A skirmish ensued between the Yankees and Capt. Savage's Provost Guard and a party of Cobb's Georgia Legion. The Yankees, after remaining one hour, retired, going up the Warrenton road.
The calamities of genius are notorious. It is either in jail, like Savage; or is pitted with small-pox, like Mirabeau; or gets drunk, like Burns; or lives a life of continual warfares with sheriffs, like Steele; or dies of hunger, like Cervantes; or puts an end to itself, like Chatterion; or never comes to an end at all, and goes to law besides, like Count George Johannes. The old citizens of Richmond all remember this gifted Bohemian chevalier. In former days, he graced the theatrical boards of the Old Marshall under the simple, republican appellation of George Jones. He afterwards traveled in foreign parts, became the pot of royalty, as genius sometimes is, and was intimate with Napoleon and the Emperor of Russia,--so he says, --and we defy any man to prove the contrary. It is often the lot of scientific and esthetic men, of poets, painters, sculptors, musicians, inventors and artists, to be looked down upon by the great ones of the earth. The quondam hero of the Mar
