Washington Gossip. Washington, July 9. --It is stated here that Gov. Hicks, of Maryland, reports that the Secession feeling is strong on the Eastern Shore, and he wants Federal troops to protect the Union men there. The Cabinet had a consultation to-day with Gen. Scott about sending troops to that portion of Maryland, but the result is not known Mr. Valiandigham declared, in the Democratic caucus last night, that he preferred peace to the preservation of the Union. Col. Taylor has arrived in Washington with a flag of truce. A thousand rumors are a float in reference to his mission, but it is believed that it refers to an exchange of prisoners. It is stated that Gen. Scott is in hourly expectation of intelligence of a battle between Generals Patterson and Johnston, at Edwards' Ferry The Government has sent reinforcements When the courier left for assistance two Federalists were dead. At Buckhannon, Capt.Barrett's company, of the Ninth Ohio Regime
m an enlistment of three years as the only satisfactory probation for a citizenship in the South. Why are they patronized? Can't any of our old Virginians cultivate a winning smile and a kind manner to entitle them to the confidence of their fellow-citizens? Suppose they try. I see the militia are called out. Some have reported here, and the first duty they had to perform was to take hold of spades and the like and throw up entrenchments. It is good for them. Why don't they join some of the numerous companies of the First Regiment at Manassas? There are four companies at least that have not their entire complement of men. Captains Boggs, Taylor, Griswold, Sherman, Lee, and others would be glad to swell their numbers, and brave men, we would think, would not hesitate to join these rather than militia companies. Our men are looking finely, and will give a good account of themselves when called for. Our officers are of the right stamp, from Gen. Beauregard down. Senex.
The Cavalry charge. --A letter from Clarke county, Va. corrects a statement lately made by a correspondent of this paper in regard to the cavalry charge upon the ranks of the Zouaves in the battle of Manassas. Desirous of doing justice to all who participated in that gallant charge, we quote a portion of the letter: "The truth of the matter is, that only two companies were in that charge, and they were ordered according to seniority of formation. In that way Captain Carter's company was the first to lead off, and was followed by the Clarke County Cavalry, under Lieut. Taylor. Captain Carter's company having lost so severely before reaching the enemy's ranks, the Clarke Cavalry did most of the real execution. This is said with no view of detracting from the merits of Carter's gallant bend, but to vindicate the truth of history."
volunteers has been furnished, and the balance returned home. Of course all necessary exemptions ought to be made. I do not like the idea of our city and county militia being behind-hand; and, as "fair play is a jewel," the militia of some counties ought not to be kept out on duty, while in other localities the members are at home solely through an error. There are offices for recruiting open at Richmond, and if the number due would volunteer it would make it all right. Messrs. Matthew P Taylor, an experienced artillery officer, and J. Bruce McClelland, who is highly spoken of, have both advertised for artillery recruits, and the President's Guard, Captain Griswold's corps, at Manassas, and other companies, (many mustered in,) desire more recruit. A perusal of your paper for weeks back will direct any one where to go; and the attention of the proper authorities ought to see to the matter, and rectify all mistakes, not only for the public good, but that equal justices may be done t

eighteen, left Tennessee on foot, and arrived in time to participate in the victory of San Jacinic, where he commanded a piece of artillery, and distinguished himself by his efficiency and heroism. When the Mexican war begun, McCulloch raised that famous company of Rangers, which rendered such extraordinary service and achieved universal favor. It was he who penetrated the Mexican lines before the battle of Buena Vistas, ascertained their exact numbers and purposes, and communicated to Gen. Taylor the first intelligence he received of Santa Anna's approach, information which essentially aided in saving our army from defeat. In the great battle of Buena Vista, McCulloch distinguished himself by his splendid courage. Gen. McCulloch is a man who has a natural genius and aptitude for war. He was born a soldier and a strategist. In this respect he resembles Andrew Jackson. There are few men but Andrew Jackson who could have won the battle of New Orleans; but Bun McCulloch is one

They were committed to jail, to await orders from Washington. Seizure of Newspapers. The following is a special dispatch to the Baltimore Exchange: Philadelphia, Aug. 23.--I learn that the United States Marshal at this place has just seized the bundles of New York papers intended for Mr. Taylor, of your city, and will not permit the Daily News, the Journal of Commerce, or the Day Book to be sent forward. The Marshal has notified the persons who called upon him to inquire about the matter that all parties hereafter found selling the above papers will be arrested. I presume that the notice extends at present no further than this particular district. The Marshal also seized all the bundles of the News at the express offices for the West and South including over one thousand copie
War News. The telegraphic news in our paper yesterday morning announced, under date Cincinnati, Aug. 27, that "Col. Taylor's force on the Kanawha was badly defeated by the Confederates a few days ago." There was no doubt a mistake in the name of the officer. It should have been Colonel Tyler. This is the Colonel Tyler about whom there was an editorial notice in yesterday's Dispatch, We think the announcement every way probable. We learn that Governor Wise, with a part of his brigade, marched some days since in the direction of Summerville, in Nicholas county, some thirty miles distant, in a northwestern direction, from the main Kanawha turnpike, along which Gen. Floyd was proceeding with his army. Tyler was known to be in Nicholas, at or near Summerville. It was reported that there were 2,000 Federalists in Nicholas. We hope it is true that the Confederates under General Wise have whipped these invaders under the sharper in furs — this Col. Tyler. The mail of to
