Coming to Richmond. The first detachment of Scott's army, which was to have arrived in Richmond on the 29th of July, was, after all, only three days behind time. Among them are a part of the Zouaves, whose regiment was annihilated in the late battle, and whose old Colonel, Ellsworth, was killed by the patriot Jackson.

Scott, that, though in his recent plant of campaign hisely upset all Patterson's instructions from General, Scott; and instead of giving battle to Johnston, he retrear of Johnston's command had not been contemplated in Scott's instructions to Patterson, and that the enemy had Virginia by way of the Valley had been abandoned by Scott after the falling back of our army from Harper's Fer enemy in that quarter were more feints, and that Gen. Scott had now determined to make the invasion by way ofs for that decisive blow, was a master conception of Scott. But his strategy was distinctly read, at every moveicipated and brought to naught than were those of Gen. Scott by one of his once most favorite pupils. We belithat highest department of Generalship. What Gen. Scott's plans will now be, cannot be conjectured. If e baffled in his greatest conceptions of strategy, Gen. Scott may be considered that man. Infirm in health and
