Why the troops were hurried up. --A Washington letter says: Republican Congressmen say that the reason of the late hurrying up of troops to this point from the North was because Gen. Scott found that troops were concentrating in Virginia much faster than he had anticipated. The troops here are going rapidly into camp upon the high grounds in the flank and rear of the city, but there are no indications that fieldworks are to be thrown up thereon, as has been suggested in the New York administration papers. The command of the Potomac precludes the necessity of such steps at present.

Campbell, of Ga., offered a resolution declaring it inexpedient for this body to attempt public collections for any of the objects embraced in its Constitution during its present session. After some discussion, the resolution was laid on the table. The committee on time and place of next meeting reported,
indred measures will be a great advantage to the South. It will set on foot a thousand branches of manufacture which would never have taken spontaneous root in the South. How very many classes of manufacture there are connected with the equipment of armies. Half the wants of domestic life are supplied by the same factories which provide the outfit of the soldier. If we are made to manufacture all the articles requisite in war within ourselves, we shall continue to manufacture them when the war shall have ceased. No sooner has Gen. Scott's list of things contraband of war been made public, than immediate steps are taken in Richmond to manufacture here all that was not manufactured before. All that we ever wanted for the establishment of these manufactures in the South, was a prohibition of the Northern rival article. No sooner is that prohibition decreed by Lincoln, than the new manufacture springs up spontaneously around us. Surely are the Fates working for us in this contest.
ly eleven thousand dollars offered for three heads, that it would be an excellent bargain for the Yankees to get at eleven millions. We hope there will be no retaliation. We hope that no one will offer a reward for the head of Abe Lincoln or GenScott, or Com. Pendergrast. Indeed, a friend suggests that a large reward should be offered to any one who will guarantee that the heads of Lincoln, Scott, Pendergrast & Co. shall be kept on their shoulders.

We can wish cur vindictive enemy no worse luck than to have those incompetent skulls just where they are. It would be shameful extravagance and inhuman contempt of the brute creation to offer the reward of a calf's head for the whole lot. One word in regard to the infamous assault upon Lieut. Maury. It is simply false that he left a mass of unfinished work at the Observatory. Every duty connected with his department was fulfilled up to the last moment, and if be said nothing to the Secretary of the Navy of his intention of resigni

Infirm, gouty and overwhelmed with the lashings of a guilty conscience, he has become a sort of terror to all around him. His Aids tremble in his presence, and his petulancy prevents him from giving any one a civil answer. "Old Abe." it is sa latter has not forgotten and never will, the remark of Lincoln to Rev.

At one time it was thought that Cameron and Seward would have to interfere to prevent a personal collision. Scott raved like a madman, and told Lincoln that he was a stupid fool, a most consummate ass, and lavished sundry other choice epith
[for the Dispatch.]University of Virginia, may 11. To the Editors of the Richmond Dispatch: Dear Sirs: It has been suggested, as I learn from your paper, that the ladies of Richmond hold a meeting to make arrangements for demanding from General Scott the sword which was presented to him by Virginia. As a friend and admirer of the ladies of Richmond, Implore them not to follow out or favor such an idea. It would inflict a deep and lasting mortification on thousands of brave hearts in Virginia to see her fair daughters honor the old traitor with such a notice. Let him keep the sword, and ture its sharp edge against the mother who gave it. The true sons of Virginia had rather meet him with that sword in his hand than any other he could possibly bear. But they will never meet him. He must despise himself, and will never fight again. Even the base villains, who use the old traitor in planning and plotting against his native Commonwealth, must despise him in their hearts.
