Instead of advancing upon the Capital, which according to the public boast of Mr. Jefferson Davis' adherents, ought to have been in their possession a month ago, they have not only made a renegade movement, but they have evacuated Harper's Ferry, a post of great importance, which they had taken all possible pains to fortify. It may be a wise thing of the Southern President to retreat under the circumstances, but it was unwise to boast of his intentions of taking Washington when he had not the means of doing so. General Scott has managed better. He has kept his plans entirely to himself, and he has for the present, at least, secured Washington from any attack. Americans have at length encountered Americans in deadly conflict, and although the loss of life has not been great, we fear it will prove sufficient to render a peaceful solution of the quarrel impossible. The strife must now go on; but how far and with what result he would be a bold man who would venture to predict.
Southern traitors. --Robert L. Mallory, of Kentucky, Representative in the Lincoln Congress, from the Louisville District, is fast becoming the leader of the Lincoln party.--Andy Johnson, of Tennessee, leader in the Senate, Mallory in the House, and Scott in the field, gives great power to the Southern traitors.

He had collected at Washington all the troops of the regular army on the east of the Rocky Mountains. The forces from Jefferson Barracks and from St. Louis, with which Gen Lyon had been hectoring for two months over the people of Missouri had been brought to the Potomac. The three batteries of the regular army that had been sent to aid the column of Patterso, which had been diligently brought together from long distances for the special work of this important day. It was an army of those "good soldiers," with which Gen.

o are eternally crying out for a fight, and seem eager for a fray, and have sworn that there never would be a "forward march," are struck dumb by McClellan 's splendid action. All tongues unite in pronouncing him the Garibaldi of the war. At the same time it is difficult to determine what General Patterson shall be called. His position is undoubtedly a very difficult one; but he he manages to keep that all to himself. General McDowell is in his saddle, awaiting the command from Gen. Scott to "forward, march!" This order will be given, undoubtedly, when Patterson moves to his proper position on the chess board. General Butler is spoiling for a fight, but will be held back until the rebels are driven to Richmond, when Butler will be let loose to help bag them.
